UNDAY, JULY ,


Purpose of hearings to draw out


'as much information as possible'


Chronicle

John Couey will appear in court
Tuesday so a judge can determine if he's
mentally retarded and barred from execu-
tion for killing 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford
of Homosassa two years ago. If Circuit
Judge Ric Howard finds he's not mentally
retarded, another hearing will take place
to decide if a jury's recommendation of
death by lethal injection is an appropriate
sentence.
In a question-and-answer interview
with the Chronicle, Ann Finnell, an assis-
tant public defender in Jacksonville with
29 years handling homicide cases,
explains the purposes of the mental retar-
dation and Spencer hearings, and what
could happen next:

Q: A jury has already found John Couey
guilty of raping and killing Jessica
nsford, and subsequently decided he
should be sentenced to death for the
crime. So why have these hearings?


COUEY
Continued from Page 1A

tion is appropriate.
To prove Couey is mentally
retarded, unlike criminal
trials where the prosecution
has the burden to prove guilt
or innocence, the defense
has the burden to prove
retardation with "clear and
convincing evidence."
Ann Finnell, a
Jacksonville assistant public
defender with 29 years han-
dling homicide cases, says
his lawyers need to prove
three elements.
State statute 921.137
requires proving someone
has "sub average general
intellectual functioning,"
deficits in adaptive function-
ing handling basics every-
day tasks and that the con-
ditions were present after
birth.
"The person would have to
show evidence of mental
retardation before they
reach the age of 18," Finnell
said.
During Couey's trial, lone
defense witness Dr. Robert
Berland, a Tampa psycholo-
gist, testified he thought
Couey was mildly mentally
retarded, and suffered from
mental illness caused by


A : "I'm a great believer in the jury sys-
tem. But still, there's a lot of emotion
that goes into that process. That's why we
have a little bit of checks and balance in
this system." Both hearings give prosecu-
tors and the defense a chance to present
additional evidence and testimony, clarify
points made at trial or the penalty phase,
and the judge can consider everything in a
more relaxed environment, she said-.
And law prohibits executing someone
who is mentally retarded.
: How hard will it be to prove Couey is
mentally retarded when the jury
already decided insufficient evidence was
presented to show he is?
: Just having a low IQ doesn't mean
someone is retarded, and it might be
difficult to show Couey was having prob-
lems when he was younger because of the
lack of records. The ultimate deciding fac-
tor could be Couey's adaptive functioning;
or how he copes with basic everyday tasks
and life challenges. "Can he make his


brain injury.
He said Couey is psychotic
and suffers from paranoid
delusions, hallucinations
and mood disturbances.
Couey was placed in spe-
cial education classes in
middle school, and Berland
said an IQ test given four
days before his trial began
Feb. 12 indicated a score of
64, putting him in the mildly
mentally retarded range.
The 12-person jury consid-
ered such evidence during
the trial, and during the
penalty phase as a reason
Couey shouldn't be executed.
It found there wasn't suffi-
cient evidence, taking little
more than an hour before
reaching a 10-2 vote to
impose the death penalty.
Though the average IQ for
people is 100, Finnell said
having a low IQ score doesn't
necessarily mean someone is
retarded, and with fewer
school records available as a
person gets older, it's
tougher to show why Couey
was placed in special educa-
tion classes.
She said the biggest issue
in proving retardation at the
hearing could be Couey's
adaptive functioning, such
as social interaction, self-
care, job history and balanc-
ing a checkbook.
"That might be the ulti-
mate deciding factor,"


mortgage payment? Can he make change?
Can he do these basic things?" Having
menial jobs might be indicative of him not
coping well.

: What's the purpose of a Spencer
hearing?
A: "It's not only a last gasp for the
defense, it can be a last gasp for the
state." The judge is hearing additional tes-
timony, he's hearing additional facts.
Either side can rebut something that came
out of the penalty phase.
It also allows for the defendant to be
heard, if he wishes.

: What evidence or facts can be pre-
sented at that hearing?
: Victim impact, additional facts that
can bolster one side's position, letters
from family members or relatives of the
defendant supporting the defense. '"A per-
son's life is kind of hanging in the balance,
and you want to make sure as much infor-
mation as possible is presented."


That might be the ultimate

deciding factor.

Ann Finnell
Jacksonville assistant public defender, on assessing John Couey's adaptive
functioning, such as social interaction, self-care, job history and the ability to
balance a checkbook.


Finnell said.
Two psychologists Howard
appointed to examine Couey
after his conviction -
Gregory Prichard of Bristol
and Dr. Elizabeth McMann of
Gainesville will testify
Tuesday about their find-
ings. Because their deposi-
tions concern mental health
details, Chief Assistant State
Attorney Ric Ridgway could
not comment about them
Thursday.
If Howard rules Couey is
not mentally retarded, he
will proceed to the Spencer
hearing, when the prosecu-
tion and defense will pres-
ent evidence supporting
their sides execution or
life in prison.
Howard will consider evi-
dence presented at the hear-
ing aggravating factors
why Couey should be execut-
ed and mitigating factors
explaining why he shouldn't
be before issuing a final
sentence.
A tentative date of 2 p.m.


Friday, Aug. 10, has been set
for sentencing, Ridgway and
court officials said.
The defense is only
expected to call one witness
during the Spencer hearing,
according to Ridgway,
though the person has not
been identified.
Calls to Assistant Public
Defender Dan Lewan, one of
Couey's lawyers, were not
returned.
Couey's lawyers have
declined comment since his
arrest.
Ridgway said his only wit-
nesses will be the Lunsford
family to talk about the
impact Jessica's death has
had.
While law allows Howard
to consider such testimony,
he. can't consider the fami-
ly's personal opinions or
characterizations of the
crime.
Ridgway added, "This is
the opportunity for the
Lunsford family to have
their say."

Tip leads to porn arrest


Special to the Chronicle
Sheriff's detectives arrested
a Dunnellon area man last
week and charged him with
possession of child pornogra-
phy.
Ronald Robert Miller, 56, of
16820 S.W. 42 Place in Classic
Hills, a community off State
Road 40, was charged July 5,
with three counts of posses-
sion of child pornography,
each a third degree felony.
Conviction on any of the
charges could result in up to
five years imprisonment and a
$5,000 fine per count.


The case came to the
Marion County Sheriff's
Office on a tip when the
Sexual Offender/Predator
Unit at the sheriff's office was
told on May 29 by the Internet
Crimes Against Children Task
Force in Gainesville about a
complaint by a juvenile AOL
subscriber.
The 14-year-old boy com-
plained about the sexual
nature of an instant message
chat from another AOL sub-
scriber identified as
"dlr2981."
The screen names were
identified as belonging to a


person 56 years of age.
A subpoena was served to
America Online to get sub-
scriber information for the
accounts. The account of the
person being complained
about had been deleted, but
subscriber information, with
the help of county property
records, led detectives to
Miller, the sheriff's office said.
Detective Niels Tonnesen,
who works in the Marion
Youth Internet Crimes Unit set
up specifically for these types
of investigations, went to
Miller's residence to confirm
the AOL account information,


and Miller confirmed the
account was his and that he
was online during the time in
question, Tonnesen said.
Tonnesen, whose unit regu-
larly monitors chat rooms for
suspicious activity and online
solicitation 'of children, said
he was given permission to
examine Miller's computer
and found files containing
child pornography When
questioned about the files,
Tonnesen said, Miller
acknowledged he saved the
images, which he identified as
child pornography.
Deputies seized Miller's

A 48-year-old Arcadia man
was killed and three others
were injured on Interstate 75
in Lake Panasoffkee on
Monday night in a single-vehi-

One of the injured passen-
gers included an elderly
woman who was riding in the
bed of the truck.
The wreck happened at
7.45 p.m. at the Lake
Panasoffkee bridge as four
people from Arcadia were
traveling south in a 1987
Chevrolet pickup truck,


according to a Florida
Highway Patrol report.
As they traveled in the out-
side lane, the rear left tire of
the truck blew out and the
driver, 43-year-old Joyce A.
Cole, lost control, according to
the report.
The truck overturned sever-'
al times and landed on its
roof, stopping on the west
shoulder of the road.
Charles A. Bennet, Sr., 48,
who was restrained in the cab,
was pronounced dead at the
scene, according to the report.
Also restrained in the cab
were 3-year-old Eva Bishop,

ered 30 Valium pills missing from a

Around 11 p.m. Tuesday, Morris
was involved in a hit-and-run acci-
dent on Van Nortwick Road in
Lecanto. When deputies found
Morris driving in Inverness, she told
deputies she had no idea she had hit
a truck, according to the report.
Deputies suspected she was under
the influence and drove her home,
they said.
When she was later questioned
about the missing medication, her


boyfriend went into the garage of her
residence on Belair Drive and came
back with medication and three
small baggies of pills. He said the
medication was in the garage, under
Morris' work clothing "where she
always hides her alcohol," according
to the report. Deputies confirmed the
narcotics were the missing medica-
tion, they said. Bond $4,750.

TRAFFIC
Continued from Page 1A

brands. This development will
have a very strong, positive
economic impact on Citrus
County."
But it would have other
impacts as well.
The retail development
would be larger than the
203,000-square-foot Wal-Mart
Supercenter in Inverness and
would add to the county's tax
base, but it could substantially
increase traffic levels on por-
tions of C.R. 486 and C.R. 491.
Wiggins said the shopping
center is expected to be a pop-
ular one, offering entertain-
ment, arts and crafts programs,
and a public plaza, and he said
Crosland is working closely
with county officials to make
sure the necessary infrastruc-
ture is in place to "alleviate the
additional traffic the shopping
center might incur."
Infrastructure is a term that
refers to such things as roads,
schools, landfills and utilities.
Large developments cause
impacts to these public facili-
ties. Impact fees pay for some
of the impacts, but not all.
Roads could be the biggest
challenge with the new shop-
ping center.
County officials say C.R. 486
is the only major east/west traf-
fic artery the county owns. The
road corridor runs through
some of the largest subdivi-
sions in the county. Citrus
Hills, Beverly Hills, Pine
Ridge, Black Diamond Ranch
and, to some extent, Citrus
Springs contribute traffic to the
road. All the subdivisions are
growing. They will continue
adding traffic to C.R. 486 in the
future.
The shopping center also
would dump heavy traffic on
C.R. 486.
Busy C.R. 486 corridor
The county's proposed five-
year transportation plan calls
for about $113 million to be
spent on improvements to the
C.R. 486 corridor. The money
would be used for road con-
struction, right-of-way pur-
chases and design. The money
represents the entire five-year
transportation improvement
plan. The county sets aside


money for road-widening in
areas where it knows growth
will impact the transportation
system.
County officials hope to
spare C.R. 486 from becoming a
cramped, gridlocked highway
They know that the future
shopping center and other
developments will heavily
impact the road. Much of C.R.
486 remains two lanes for now.
If the Tuscany development
in Beverly Hills is ever
approved and county plan-
ners believe they may see
activity with the Tuscany devel-
opment after the real estate
market comes back to life in
the next two or three years it
could add considerably more
traffic to C.R. 486. Tuscany
would be the final phase of the
Beverly Hills Development of
Regional Impact (DRI).
The May 28 minutes of the
Florida Land and Water
Adjudicatory Commission say
the Tuscany development plan
would add "3,000 single family
units within the DRI portion of
the property, 1,120 low-density
residential units in the non-
DRI portion or the property,
1,250 low-density, multi-family
units, a life-care center and
about 307 acres of right-of-way,
open space and other acreage."
Whether all of those homes
will come to fruition is
unknown, but if Tuscany ever
springs to life, traffic levels on
C.R. 486 will grow even more.
The county wants to expand
the road before traffic becomes
a big problem.
Spine of the county
But C.R. 486 also has a fea-
ture hidden from most people,
The county-owned water and
sewer transmission lines run
along the road. Whenever road
improvements are made, the
county relocates the pipelines
and also sizes them to meet
future growth. Both county-
owned water treatment plants
and both of the main county-
owned sewage treatment
plants are located along the
road.
Part of the expense of widen-
ing the road is relocating and
upgrading the utility lines as
the road improvements occur.
The lines also have to be sized
to accommodate future resi-
dential and commercial
growth.
"County Road 486 is the


spine of the county utility sys-
tem, and it goes through the
heart of the densest population
in the county, so it has to han-
dle the traffic," said Public
Works Director Glenn
McCracken.
Adding a major shopping
center to the spine of the coun-
ty traffic and utility network
will challenge county planning
and engineering staff, particu-
larly a shopping center that
could change county traffic
patterns.
"Assuming Crosland devel-
ops a major shopping center at
486 and 491, we'll be seeing a
major shift in traffic," said
County Development Services
Director Gary Maidhof. He
said people who once traveled
from Lecanto or Crystal River
to shop across the county might
drive to the shopping center
closest to them in Lecanto.
County officials are negotiat-
ing a developer's agreement
with Crosland, but they can't
wait for the development to
begin operating before they
enhance C.R. 486. State concur-
rency law says the roads, water,
sewer, schools and even land-
fill facilities that might be
impacted by the shopping cen-
ter must be in place to support
the development at the time it
begins operating.
Improving C.R. 486
The cost of building a lane
mile of urbanized road is about
$16 million, according to
McCracken. An urban road
consists of four lanes with curb
and gutter, pedestrian walk-
ways and planned drainage
areas. In the case of C.R. 486,
the county is purchasing land

Gary IVaidhof
development services director for Citrus County.


to widen the road to four lanes.
The land sometimes has to be
purchased through eminent
domain if the landowner does-
n't agree to a price.
A county contractor has com-
pleted 90 percent of the widen-
ing of C.R. 486 from Forest
Ridge Boulevard in Beverly
Hills to U.S. 41 in Hernando.
The $24.7 million project
includes improvements to the
northern intersection and traf-
fic light at Croft Road and C.R.
486. The project will improve
traffic flow on C.R. 486 and
should eliminate long traffic
lines on Croft Road as parents
wait to pick up their children
from Hernando Elementary
School. The school board is
building an interior traffic
stacking area on its property.
The four-laning of C.R. 486
should be finished by the fall.
The five-year transportation
plan says the next phase of
four-laning on C.R. 486 will be
an $8 million project to widen
about a mile of the road from
Forest Ridge Boulevard east to
North Ottawa. The county
already owns the right-of-way


necessary for the widening,
which means the $8 million is
just the construction cost The
work will begin whenever DAB
Constructors Inc. finishes the
current widening project on
C.R. 486. DAB won't have to
demobilize. It will move its
equipment west to the next seg-
ment of C.R. 486.
Next in line along the C.R.
486 corridor is a joint road
expansion project in the area
of the proposed shopping cen-
ter. The project will widen C.R.
491 from West Horace Allen
Street to C.R. 486, and widen
C.R. 486 from North Ottawa
west to the Black Diamond
Service Road. The total cost of
widening those two roads and
improving the intersection at
C.R. 486 and C.R. 491 is esti-
mated at about $20 million.
Construction should begin in
2008.
The county has no immedi-
ate plans to widen the six-miles
of C.R. 486 to State Road 44.
McCracken said the county
wants to wait until the Florida
Turnpike Enterprise deter-
mines the exact location of


Suncoast Parkway 2 before it
widens that section of the high-
way The four-lane toll road
will cross over C.R. 486 along
the six-mile segment. The
county knows the general loca-
tion of the parkway route, but
before it goes to the expense of
relocating utility lines and
tearing up the road right-of-
way, it wants the exact location,
McCracken said.
Maidhof said county staff
and the county commission are
aware of what happened in
counties south of Citrus when
growth outpaced the ability of
local governments to add infra-
structure. Citrus County is
attempting to stay ahead of
growth. But he said it takes
money. Road construction is
funded almost entirely with gas
tax revenues in Citrus County.
The additional six cents of gas
tax imposed last year has
proved unpopular with some
taxpayers. But Maidhof said
the county does have a choice.
"We could explode like
Pasco County in the next 10
years if the infrastructure is in
place," Maidhof said. "If we
don't have the infrastructure in
place, we will be like Pasco
County and we'll always be try-
ing to catch up."

State has high profile bridge project in 2008


TERRY WITT
terrywitt@
chronicleonline.com
Chronicle

While Citrus County govern-
ment focuses on improving
the County Road 486 corridor,
the state is following the coun-
ty's wishes to make improve-
ments to U.S. 19.
One of the largest planned
projects is the replacement of
the Cross Florida Barge Canal
Bridge on U.S. 19 in northern
Citrus County.
The Florida Department of
Transportation plans to
replace the taller existing
bridge with twin 45-foot
bridges. One bridge will carry
northbound traffic, the other
southbound. The state esti-
mates the cost of the project
will be about $37 million and
construction will begin early
next year. The contractor will
be selected in October
Rumors that the project is
somehow connected to the
ongoing evaluation study of


Suncoast Parkway 2 are
untrue, according to FDOT
spokeswoman Marian Scorza.
She said FDOT hosted public
hearings in 1996 and again in
2003 to gather input on con-
structing new bridges.
"It's the only two-lane sec-
tion of U.S. 19 left in the
state," Scorza said. "It has to
be done."
She said the original plan
was for 65-foot tall bridges
across the canal, but that was
when a marina was to be built
on the east side of the bridge.
The bridge would have been
tall enough to accommodate
sailing boats, but plans for the
marina were abandoned.
FDOT is about to complete
a resurfacing project on U.S.
19 between Fort Island Trail
and Northeast First Terrace.
The $2.7 million project also
replaced a center turn lane
with a raised median. An
existing sidewalk was
replaced with a 12-foot-wide
multi-use asphalt path on
both sides of the highway. The

ant mast arm. The contractor
is C.W Roberts Inc.
The state agency has begun
resurfacing six miles of U.S.
19 south from Yulee Road in
Homosassa Springs to County
Road 44 (Fort Island Trail).
The $6.8 million project also
will include replacing the
pedestrian signal at Fort
Island Trail and U.S. 19 and
adding a new pedestrian sig-
nal at Ozello Trail and U.S. 19.
DAB Constructors Inc. has the
contract. The work
should take seven months

to complete.
FDOT also is finishing a
$3.3-million repaving project
at the intersection State Road
44 and County Road 486 that
will add a second left turn
lane from S.R. 44 onto C.R.
486. The traffic signal is being
replaced, and 1.9 miles of S.R.
44 west of the intersection has
been repaved. New storm
drainage is being added at
North Turkey Oak Drive and
S.R. 44. A new flashing signal
is being added to Northeast
12th Avenue and West Crystal
River. C.W Roberts is the con-
tractor.

Participants
Sought for
Hearing Aid
Field Study
My audiology clinics have
received a generous grant
from Magnatone to conduct
an important field study on
a new model of open ear
hearing aid. It is smaller
and more comfortable than
traditional hearing aids. We
are seeking people with mild
to moderate hearing loss to
participate in the study. Both
current hearing aid users and
non-users are needed.
In exchange for completing
a pre-and post-fitting ques-
tionnaire, the participants
will earn the free use of this
hearing aid for thirty days. My
audiologists will provide the
exams and lab services at
no charge through the grant.
At the end of this thirty day
trial, participants will return
the aids to one of my clinics
or purchase the aids at a
discounted price.
For information or to
schedule a free candidate
screening, call us at

UNDAY, JULY ,


Veterans NOTES


The Citrus County Veterans
Coalition will meet at 6 p.m.,
Thursday, July 26 at the Citrus
County Resource Center, W. Marc
Knighton Court, just off County
Road 491, in Lecanto.
This is an open business meet-
ing and all members, veteran's
organizations and interested veter-
ans who are eager to assist veter-
ans in need are encouraged to
come and get involved. Annual
dues are now $10 per year or 3
years for $25 as of April 1, 2007.
Check your membership card to
see if it has expired. Please make
every effort to renew at the next
meeting. We need your support
and participation.
The CCVC has projects that
need your help in getting accom-
plished and this can be done
through a cooperative effort of all
28,000 veterans in Citrus County.
The Citrus County Veterans
Coalition's philosophy is "Veterans
Helping Veterans." Their assis-
tance starts with serving coffee and
doughnuts at the VA Clinic once a
month, to helping needy veterans
and their families with a food bank
now serving 25 families and tem-
porary monetary assistance, and
establishing a "Re-Education
Center and Program" for veterans
who are trying to make the transi-
tion from military life to civilian life.
We are well on our way to making
these programs come to fruition
and with your help it can be done.
It takes money, veteran power and
a cooperative effort on all our parts.
For more information about the
Citrus County Veterans Coalition,
go to www.citruscountyveter-
anscoalition.org or www.ccvcfl.org.
Download an application from the
Web site or attend the meeting and
sign up. Just bring proof of service
and Honorable Discharge. If you
are currently a member of another
veterans' organization, we are not
asking that you discontinue that
relationship as we have entire
organizations that are members of
the Coalition also. There is strength
in numbers and our voices can be
heard if there are enough of us
working towards the same goal.

American Legion Post 77 to
have Blue and Silver Star Awards
ceremony.


Allen-Rawls American
Legion Post 77 will have a Blue
and Silver Star Award ceremony
Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Key
Training Center facilities at 130
Heights Ave. Congresswoman
Ginny Brown-Waite will be the
guest speaker. The ceremony is
open to Legion members;
awardees; their guests and families
due to the limited space.
The Blue Star Service banner
was designed and patented in
1917 by World War I Army Capt.
Robert L. Queissner of the 5th
Ohio Infantry, who had two sons
serving on the front line. It quickly
became the official symbol of a
child in the service.
Today, families who have a loved
one serving in the Armed Forces
including the National Guard and
Reserves of all Military
Departments display Blue Star
Service banners. The banner dis-
played in the front window of a
home shows a family's pride in
their loved one serving in the mili-
tary, and reminds others that pre-
serving America's Freedom
demands much. The Blue Star rep-
resents one family member serving
in the Armed Forces. A banner can
have up to five stars, signifying that
five members of that family are cur-
rently in military uniform on active
duty.
The Silver Star program is a way
to honor the wounded and it is now
part of the Department of
Defense's America Supports You
program. On May 1, Gov. Charlie
Crist signed into Law the "Silver
Star Day Proclamation." The
American Legion and the American
Legion Auxiliary have also adopted
the Silver Star program.
Eligibility to be Awarded the
Silver Star banner is: Any armed
forces personnel either currently
serving honorably or those who
have served honorably from any
war, who having served in a war
zone has been wounded by enemy
action or who has been injured or
contracted a serious illness that
could be rated at least 10 percent
disabled by the Department of
Veterans. This includes post-trau-
matic stress disorder, Agent
Orange and Gulf War syndrome
associated illnesses.
Allen-Rawls American Legion
Post 77 and its Auxiliary Unit 77
are very community minded. They
cannot have done all of the com-
munity events without the gener-
ous support of members and the

upstream because they could
not make it under their own
power.
It required hundreds of men
to pull some of the larger boats
through the gorge. These his-
torical paths will forever be
obliterated from view because
of the rising waters from the
dam and much of the drama of
the high cliffs and narrow pas-
sages will be lost.
Another impact of the dam
was the relocation of a million
people whose life and culture
were symbiotic with the river
To make way for the rising
waters, cities of hundreds of
thousands of people were relo-
cated to higher ground, where
,iew cities were built.

day was extra special for me
because my grandma came
with us.
After parking the car, we
jumped onto the tram to the
monorail station. The monorail
glided on tracks, taking us to
the entrance of the Magic
Kingdom and the fun begins.
First, we hopped onto Buzz
Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
and tried to defeat Zurg. Next,
in Tomorrowland, I rode
through the night sky with the
twinkling stars above us in
Space Mountain. While walk-
ing to Fantasyland we stopped
at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe
for a quick lunch. Fantasyland
has lots of rides for younger
children. We rode It's a Small
World, Peter Pan's Flight,
Snow White's Scary Adven-
tures, Cinderella's Golden Car-
rousel, Dumbo, The Many
Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
and the Mad Tea Party. I love
spinning round and round in
the tea cups.
In Liberty Square, there's a
big Haunted Mansion ride,
where you journey through the
dark with happy haunts. From
there, we followed the trail to
Frontierland. My grandma, mom
and brother visited The Country
Bear Jamboree while my dad
and I rode Splash Mountain. My
dad and I got soaked going down
the gushing waterfall .
Next, I rode a runaway train
coaster called Big Thunder
Mountain Railroad. We decid-
ed to take a relaxing train ride
to Mickey's Toontown Fair. We
visited Minnie and Mickey in
their country house and
walked through Mickey's gar-
den. We stopped for soft-serve
ice cream at the Sunshine Tree
Terrace in Adventureland. We
flew over Agrabah on magic
carpets with camels spitting

Crystal River baseball's rally

falls just short in Dunedin
JOHN COSCIA

Chronicle


DUNEDIN It's not the size of the dog in the
fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.
On a day that the Crystal River 9-10 All Stars
could have easily folded their tents, shut down
emotionally and checked out, they instead proved
that they are real athletes with plenty of fight left in
them.
They would eventually fall to Bayshore, 6-5, but
in this loss they proved more about what they're
made of then maybe even they knew about them-
selves.
Over the course of eight innings and two days the
powerful Crystal River bats went completely silent
and, as one parent admitted, "We couldn't hit a
beach ball right now if they stood up there and
rolled it to us."
But that all changed in the third inning when
I"Mighty Casey" stepped to the

Crystal River's pitching was brilliant from the
fourth inning on as they kept Bayshore in check,

In the fifth inning Weiand reached on a sharp

CR softball falls to Palma Ceia


JON-MICHAEL SORACCHI

Chronicle
DUNEDIN Following a rain delay that
lasted nearly two hours, the Crystal River
11-12 Major softball team hoped the pre-
cipitation and waiting around hadn't
cooled them off.
Against Palma Ceia, however, Crystal
River couldn't get back on track in falling
10-0 in four innings Saturday afternoon in
the Section 7 All-Star Tournament at
Fisher/Highlander Park.
Sarah Miller was the winning pitcher for
Palma Ceia, giving up two hits and a pair of
walks while striking out five during the vic-
tory.
Following the outcome, Crystal River
manager Mitch Roe put a positive spin on
the defeat. In the postgame huddle, Roe
told his players he couldn't be disappoint-


ed at them as long as they had each given
their best effort
"Things just didn't go our way today,"
said Roe, whose team fell to 1-1 overall in
pool play. "If I had to pick one negative
aspect, it's that we didn't bring our bats
today."
Indeed, Crystal River fell behind 4-0 to
Palma Ceia by the third inning, which was
very similar to the previous night against
Pinellas Park Unlike Crystal River's come-
from-behind 11-5 victory Friday, they could-
n't muster such a rally Saturday.
Two-run singles by Miller and Caroline
Bado in the fourth inning were coupled
with RBI base hits by Meghan Murphy and
Ashley Cozart to put the mercy rule in
effect in the fourth inning.
"Palma Ceia is a tremendous team," Roe
said. "My hat goes off to them."

DUNEDIN For the past
two years, the Crystal River
Dixie 16-19 year-old all-stars of
Citrus County have come up a
game short in their quest for a
state championship. Today
they face their nemesis, Polk
County, who has knocked them
out the past two years.
But before they could face
Polk County, they had unfin-
ished business to take care of
against Hernando County in
the opening round of the Dixie


League state tournament ;
And take care of it they did..
The Crystal River Pirates;
fell behind early before rally--
ing for seven unanswered runs

Derek Desomma threw a
masterful complete game in.
which he allowed just four hits'
while striking out 12 and allow-
ing just two walks.
The Pirates found them-
selves behind when Hernado
County blasted a solo home run
in the top of the first inning.
That lead, however, would be
extremely short-lived.

and I wasn't sure if I was going
to run it or not. It's nice to get a
win."
Wachtel is practically queen
of the course at Whispering
Pines. She took the lead and
held on for the triumph.
"I tried to go out hard and I
was by myself," said the 28-year-'
old Tarpon Springs resident,
who said she had eight of her
PH-CC runners competing in
the race. "This is my fastest time
here ever. I am in my marathon
training. I am four weeks into
my marathon (training for the
Chicago Marathon). I am happy
to have 18:44. I was going for
18:30. I like to run in the heat I
am not used to running trails."
Witherspoon ran the whole
race, listening to music on her
Ipod.
"I'm tired but good," said
Witherspoon. "(Her time was)
Good considering that I started
my training a lot later than
usual. Considering that I came
into this race with the mentali-
ty that I was going to get a hard
workout, I did well for the
workout. I can't be upset This
is my senior year at Florida
International. In cross country,
I finished this last season as
number one (runner)."
Former Lecanto High cross
country standout Tara
Haddock was 16th with a time
of 22:53.
"I haven't been training that
much," said Haddock "I was
seeing old teammates."

Keep the

criticism

in balance
ne of the roles of a
newspaper is to be crit-
ical of things that go
wrong in government
In a small community like
Citrus County, it can be easy to
get the wrong impression
about what's really happening.
When you get down into the
trenches of what government
does in Inverness, Crystal
River, Citrus County and the
school system, it's pretty easy
to find things that go wrong.
But I'm keeping the criti-
cism in check after hanging up
from an angry subscriber who
told me he thinks we are brain
dead.
The Crystal River reader
went on vacation and called
ahead of time to have his
paper put on hold while he
was traveling.
In our infinite effort to get,
things right, we managed to
deliver his newspaper every
day he was on vacation and
then put the newspaper on
hold the day he came back
from vacation. Then he had
trouble getting it delivered.
I'm kind of.glad that County
Commissioner Vicki Phillips
doesn't get an opportunity to
write a column about the
Chronicle's effectiveness on

The survey, from a

appreciate the fact that some-
times we are cornered or
ambushed by the media and
some circumstances don't
avail themselves to reach out
to Jess. But whenever we can,
please work requests from the
media through Jessica."
The March 15 memo was
written by the public works
chief to the county engineer in
response to a reporter's
request for information. The
engineer sought his boss' guid-

LETTERS) to


Sovereign wetlands
Editor's note: The following letter
to Gov. Charlie Crist is published at
the writer's request
An article in the St. Petersburg
Times of May 18, "As corps works to
fix the 'Glades, it approves golf
course in it," addresses three
issues: the granting of permits that
allow destruction of wetlands, the
magnitude of Florida's wetland
destruction and a particular
instance of great importance.
The article chronicles an applica-
tion to develop a wetland area that
was repeatedly denied, up through
2005, when the corps concluded the
development would cause "signifi-
cant adverse impacts" to the state's
wetlands as well to water quality
and Everglades wildlife habitat. The
original plans proposed wiping out
587 acres of swamps.
The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) pointed out
that federal rules say anything that
does not have to be built near water
should be kept out of wetlands.
Revised plans submitted to the
corps and approved in 2007
increased the wetland impacts to
655 acres. The corps approved the
permit even though the EPA
expressed concern about water pol-
lution and the loss of wildlife habi-
tat.
EPA, by law, has the power to veto
an approval by the corps; however,
in this instance, administrators in
EPA were quoted as saying they did
not want to challenge corps permit-
ting decisions, no matter how bad
they may be for the environment.


th
----


The Times analyzed satellite
imagery of the state between 1990
and 2003 and determined that about
84,000 acres of wetlands had been
lost.
Hardly a week goes by that there
isn't an announcement of another
large wetland acreage lost to corps
permits. A case in point is the
Cypress Creek Town Center at 1-75
and State Road 56. Corps approval
was announced in the Times May
17. This permit allows the develop-
ment to pave 56 acres of wetlands
near the headwaters of the
Hillsborough River.
It would be wonderful if the office
of the Governor of Florida could


e Editor
bring serious attention to this obvi-
ous flagrant abuse of the statutes,
and our diminishing environment.
Many citizens only want our gov-

is right and best for our disappear-

Station knockout
Another thunderstorm has passed
over Citrus County, and right on
schedule, WYKE (Brighthouse
Channel 16) is off the air again.
WYKE is supposed to be the
channel to get information during
emergency situations in our county.
Has anyone noticed WYKE seems
to go off the air whenever it gets
cloudy over Crystal River and who
were the geniuses who contracted
with WYKE to be our emergency
channel?
The last time WYKE was
knocked off the air by a minor thun-
derstorm, it was more than 12 hours
before the station came back on
line, with no sound for several 'addi-
tional hours.
The sheriff's office and emer-
gency management urges all of us to
be prepared for hurricane season.
What is WYKE doing to resolve
these problems or has any consider-
ation been given to changing to
some other, more reliable source of
emergency information?

Hot Corner: TAXES
sioners: Have you ever
heard of the Boston Tea
Party? Overtaxing citizens
never worked and never will
work. Have you learned your
lesson yet? Look back in his-
tory. What a mess Citrus
County is now. A lot of peo-
ple are out of work, high
taxes, high real estate, high
groceries. You're talking
about a rip-off ... This will
not bring more income to
Citrus County. It only leads to
people leaving Citrus County.
I don't know if this is what
you want, but you need to
realize that working-class
people are the ones who pay

them ahead of legal applicants.
The revised bill (S.1639) cor-
rected most of these flaws, but
by the time you got around to
it, we were so offended by
S.1348 and had lost so much
confidence in the Senate we
didn't notice.
This country requires immi-
gration reform and the
extraordinary level of grass-

issue offers convincing evi-
dence that the public wants it

Despite the brouhaha in

a reevaluation of the ballooning

way to solve the glut of unsold

tion to those sellers and buyers
who are priced over the top.

Critical thinking
I often find myself aghast at
some of the "facts" put forth in
letters printed in your editori-
al pages. A recent letter dis-
paraging pacifism and trying
to support the war on terror
was so devoid of facts it was
pitiful. The writer offers that
the readers are "history
depraved" if they oppose the
wars this country engages in.
To illustrate his point, he uses
historical distortion, as well as
outright lies, to besmirch the.
reputation of a noted and
faithful American of German
heritage.
Wernher Von Braun was not
Hitler's atomic bomb scientist.

You don't even have to look

According to Mr. Webster,


the word gumbo is derived
from an African word that

as "a soup thickened with okra

director of the Army Rocket
Center at Peenemunde,
Germany. He had nothing to
do with atomic weapons
research or development At
the end of the war, Von Braun
and his brother Magnus, also a
rocket engineer, surrendered
willingly to the Americans.
They were not captured.
After his surrender, he did
not build bombs that defeated
Japan (that was the American
Robert Oppenheimer). Instead,
he became a major contributor
to the NASA program, an advo-
cate for humans in space and
part of our history and national
pride for helping put a man on
the moon. Without Von Braun,
Kennedy's dream would never
have been realized.
The letter states that those
who are opposed to wars cre-
ate a false image of what
America really stands for. I
contend using false statements


to support a point of view or
actions is just as distasteful.
For those who speak out
against government actions to
be compared to Benedict
Arnold also shows a lack of crit-
ical thinking. Those who use
the First Amendment are not
scheming for the surrender of
West Point to al-Qaida. It is our
obligation as citizens to provide
public redress on issues of con-
cern. Public discourse needs to
be more than talking points,
sound bites and slogans.
I submit that the war on ter-
ror should be focused on terror-
ists, not on the invasion of coun-
tries that pose no real threat to
the sovereignty of America.

Beginning of life
Editor's note: This letter to
Sen. Mel Martinez is pub-
lished at the writer's request.
In response to your position


on stem cell research, I
believe it coincides with that
of the president, which is
understandable since he
vetoed the bill that would per-
mit it Regretfully, your con-
cept of human life beginning
at the moment of conception is
at the expense of many human
lives in existence.
My only thought is that if
you, the president and others
of the evangelical right feel so
strongly that life begins at con-
ception rather than at birth, I
urge you to sponsor legislation
that requires a pre-birth cer-
tificate that dates the approxi-
mate time of conception,
requires the parents to name
the child before birth and
enter it in the records as a
"consummate birth."
Otherwise, I believe you
should recognize that the date
of birth is the date on which
"human life" is effected.

4C Si ny,. 1 2007 COMMENTARY CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE



Energy independence means using all resources


Every president since
Jimmy Carter has stated
that national security
demands being less dependent
upon imported oil. The
International Energy Agency
predicts that by 2012 maximum
output i'rom all sources will
just satisfy world demand with
no reserve capacity. If they are
right, fuel prices will rise
relentlessly, and any mishap
will result in severe shortages.
So how do we achieve energy
independence?
We have billions of barrels of
oil and trillions of cubic feet of
natural gas beneath the Gulf of
Mexico. Florida worries about
oil spills soiling beaches and
ruining the tourist industry.
But natural gas "spills" dissi-
pate in the atmosphere, not on
beaches.
The Arctic National Wildlife
Reserve (ANWAR), a place vis-


ited by fewer than
100 tourists annually
and sparsely inhab-
ited by wildlife, has
known large
deposits of oil and
gas, which could be
available within five
years.
We also have huge
deposits of coal, Willian
which can be turned GU!
into gas for home
and industry and COLI
into liquid fuels for
use in diesel engines. Power
plant technology today allows
us to burn coal while "scrub-
bing" the smoke of harmful ele-
ments and even carbon diox-
ide.
Coal is inexpensive and
could replace a substantial
amount of oil imports. The
USA has tens of thousands of
unneeded nuclear warheads.


rn
E


These materials will
remain radioactive
"forever" and will
require special stor-
age and disposal.
They could easily be
converted to fuel for
nuclear power
plants without
increasing the
Dixon amount of radioac-
EST tive wastes.
So what has our
JMN government done to
become energy inde-
pendent to enhance national
security? They listened to
"Green" political activists and
the NIMBY_(Not In My Back
Yard) crowd. They created the
Department of Energy to
employ thousands of support-
ers and bureaucrats at the cost
of many billions of dollars to
accomplish nothing!
We are no closer to "inde-


pendence" since DOE took
over. But, we did waste billions
on Jimmy Carter's failed synfu-
els project And we are plan-
ning to waste lots more on bio-
fuels.
Look at ethanol require-
ments to be mixed with gaso-
line. In fact, ethanol is costly to
produce, uses more energy
than it provides and gives
fewer miles per gallon than
gasoline while still producing
carbon dioxide. If we planted
every farm in America with
corn, we could not make
enough ethanol to cover 30 per-
cent of our fuel needs. And
where would we grow the food
we need?
If Congress were serious
about ethanol, it would have
eliminated the excise tax on
imports from elsewhere. No, it
is all about looking good, doing
something and subsidizing


Midwest agribusiness.
Solar energy is clean and
readily available. Converting
it to electricity is costly. We
would need to cover every
inch of desert in America with
solar panels to significantly
reduce our oil imports!
Windmills work, but they
are as reliable as the weather.
We should develop these
resources, but we must not
pretend they will lead to ener-
gy independence.
True energy independence
is possible in 10 years using
all the resources we have.
Nuclear power is a first
choice. France uses nuclear
power for 80 percent of its
electricity. China is building a
new plant every six months.
We've not built one in 30
years.
Natural gas, at the least,
ought to be accessed from the


gulf. Development of ANWAR
should begin at once.
National security should
trump environmental politics.
The idea that we can con-
serve our way to freedom is
total bunk. Until we experi-
ence a major energy crisis, we
will remain dependent upon
imports. Then, freezing in the
dark, we can thank the Green
activists and the congressmen
they bought.

Hot Corner: GAS


Bouncing prices
On Friday, July 6, I left
Homosassa at 10 o'clock in
the morning to go to Crystal
River and I passed a local gas
station at Sugarmill Woods.
The price of gas was $2.87.
When I returned three hours
later, the price of gas was now
$2.91. Coincidentally, on that
same day I later went to lunch
there and purchased gas at
$2.67. There seems to be
something wrong in Citrus
County and I'd like to get an
answer.


Out of county
A couple weeks ago, a Citrus
County official commented in
the Chronicle that the revenues
from the gas tax were down
despite an increase last year in
county gas tax. They surmise
that the reduction is because
people in Citrus County are
using less gas. Get real. People
are just buying their gas out of
county. For example: Due to my
job, I travel to Hernando County
twice weekly. Since the increase
in tax, I never buy gas in Citrus
County. Today I bought gas in


Hernando that was 26 cents
per gallon cheaper than the
Citrus station I used to go to.
Down a rat hole
County commissioners: It is
a smart move that you do not
put money down a rat hole for
this elections office. If we need
a building, buy one or build
one that is permanent for us.
You're smart on this, but you
also were not too good on the
gasoline tax, the 6 cents gas
tax, forcing people to buy their
gas out of this county whenev-
er they're out.


Sound OFF


Voting a pay raise
While you and I are strug-
gling to make ends meet -
you know, with the price of gas
and the price of food things
don't go up 5 cents anymore,
they go up 50 cents. What I
would like to know is, how on
earth do members of Congress
have the nerve to give them-
selves a $4,000 raise? How
dare they. Oh, we the people. I
tell you those people are sick-
ening. We ought to cut them
all. Really, get rid of all of
them. They're no good. Really,
they're no good, period.
Help forVeterans -
Veterans: Go look up
Veterans Affairs Appropriations
Bill H.R. 2642. This is to
increase funding for the care of
veterans to help their transition
back into society, to help with
jobs, to help with more health
care, to get more case man-
agers, and our beloved presi-
dent has threatened to veto it.
Support the troops, yup.
Recycle plastic
With hurricane season com-
ing, many people wait until
there's a hurricane coming and
go out and buy bottles and bot-
tles of water. Start saving 2-
liter soda bottles or empty
washed-out milk bottles. Save
about 10 of them and put
them away with the caps off. If
a hurricane comes, fill them
with water and you will have
plenty of water. After the hurri-
cane season comes and it's

Not need, just greed
This is for Mr. Womack: The
definition of assault rifles used
by professional weapons
experts does not necessarily
refer to automatic or semiauto-
matic features. It's simply a
rifle (as opposed to a short-
barreled submachine gun)
.designed and manufactured for
military use or application.
Civilianized versions of the AK-
47, M-16, FKS, G-3, ... and oth-
ers that do not have full auto-
matic fire capability, are still
assault rifles and lethal killing
tools. Any moderately capable
shooter can get off 20 rounds
from an AK-47 and semiauto-
matic faster than a well-trained
shooter can fire four to five
rounds from a bolt-action hunt-
ing rifle. Civilianized versions of
the above weapons came about
not because of the need in the
sporting world, but because of
greed. In other words, to make
money for manufacturers and
dealers. No self-respecting
hunter would ever use a semi-
automatic military style
weapon to hunt game. Kills
should be made with a single,
well-aimed shot, not a volley of
fire. I am a life member of the

hours teaching weapons to


The Citrus County school
system is an "A' district Our
schools are fighting the good
fight to give our children an
outstanding education.
The city of Inverness has
done a tremendous job of cre-
ating a rebirth in the down-
town area. Jobs have been cre-
ated, an economy has been
stimulated and a community
has something to be proud of.

quietly built sidewalks around
town and has figured out a way to
get most homes in the waterfront
community onto a sewer system.

around just to keep Person A
from commenting directly on
something they're best
equipped to answer.
It's understandable that
social skills are the expertise
that public relations people
bring to the table and that boss-
es worry that one of their folks
could say something that may
come across in a less-than-
desirable way.
Reporters and, I believe,
taxpayers/readers aren't
interested in getting a sani-
tized version of information.
Give us the straight poop, so to
speak, and we'll get it in the
paper.
The contention that time's
limited and busy people can't
stop every time a reporter has
a question doesn't really wash.
It'd take less time to talk with a
reporter than go through the


police, military and civilian per-
sonnel, and also own several
weapons of my own.
Foreign legion
In Iraq they had a recent
recruitment drive with the
Marine Corps and 52 other
countries were represented in
this reenlistment program over
there. Is the United States
Marine Corps becoming the
next foreign legion? I'd like some
kind of answer on that. Were 52
other countries represented?
What are the president and vice
president doing to our military?
Give back dog
To the person who picked up
that Chihuahua in
Chassahowitzka: Would you
please try and have the decen-
cy to call that woman who's
been trying everywhere? And I
noticed in the paper today,
she's a recovering heart patient.
Please return that male
Chihuahua to her. You know,
have a little bit of conscience. If
that was your dog and you just
got out heart surgery. She's had
that dog for eight years and it's
the only thing that gives her the
will to live. Please return him.
Have a heart.
Winning deputies
I would like to say how proud
I am of our sheriff's (office) in
Citrus County, and how proud I
am they went to that Special
Olympics in Tampa and did
very good down there. I'd like
to congratulate them on that.
They're all winners.


The county has a great
library system. The school sys-
tem built the Renaissance
Center to provide opportunities
to students who weren't suc-
ceeding in other classrooms.
Whispering Pines Park, a
combined effort of Inverness
and Citrus County, is probably
the finest park facility in all of
Central Florida.
Residents in the county
voted to tax ourselves to save
the Homosassa Springs attrac-
tion from becoming a condo-
minium complex. Today, it's
one of the most popular state

PR person. Why pay two peo-
ple to answer one question?
Like businesses, government
is mindful of its public image
and, understandably, wants to
put its best foot forward.
Unlike business, government
belongs to the people. The
tighter the wagons are circled
around public information, the
less likely it is that newspapers
can accurately, fully convey to
taxpayers what their govern-
ment is up to.
With that said, county gov-
ernment has a competent and
likeable public information
officer, Jessica Lambert. She is
helpful and fills a needed role.
Yet, with 20-plus divisions of
county government under five
departments, connecting
reporters directly with the divi-
sion and department chiefs
makes sense.


Letters to the TOR --


Larger EOC needed
Why did Commissioner
Joyce Valentino attend the
groundbreaking for the new
Emergency Operations
Center when she is carrying
on a blood feud with Sheriff
Jeff Dawsy? Could this be
another photo opportunity to
get her name in the news?
It is my impression that
Valentino has never spent
much time in the current
EOC. If she did, she would
realize how dark, cramped
and claustrophobic this
building really is.
I do agree that 40,000
square feet may be too large.
I think the building could be
comfortably downsized to
39,999 square feet by putting
the Mr. Coffee under Capt.
Joe Eckstein's desk.
Once the EOC is built, how
much credit is Valentino and
the other dissenting commis-
sioners going to take for giv-
ing us a state-of-the-art facili-
ty? They will all point to the
photographs of the ground-
breaking and say, "See, we
approved of it all along!"
Valentino needs to spend
one 12-hour shift at the EOC,
especially during a storm

Our crime rate is low and our
streets are safe. The county, city
of Crystal River and numerous

something to stop the pollution

have the best ordinance in
Florida to protect the manatee.
We build new parks, we build
new roads and we have an
incredible lifestyle.
A newspaper's job is not to
record all the things that go
right in a community. At the

Back to the survey...
Even though the Citrus
County Chapter of the Florida
Public Relations Association is
planning a roast of the man
upstairs (Gerry Mulligan),
newspaper people and PR peo-
ple each serve a valuable role.
As indicated by the survey, gen-
erally speaking, each institu-
tion has impressions of the
other that aren't necessarily
wholly supportive.
Out of 33 questions on the
survey, I was neutral on 24 of
them. Of the nine others, only
five rose to a level of more than
"slight" agreement or disagree-
ment. To me that indicates
news people and PR people
have a more cooperative rela-
tionship than adversarial, yet
it's clear that we often come
from different points of view.

Thanks in time of need
This letter is addressed to
the people who were present
in the K-Mart parking lot on
May 30, at.the time of my
husband's fatal heart attack.
Let me express my sincere
appreciation to all who
assisted us, especially the
kind lady who assisted me in
getting my daughter on the
phone. Thank you very
much.
Also, my thanks go to the
Mall security officers and
the Crystal River police offi-
cers who were on the scene.
My special thanks go to
Corey Sharp who drove me
to the hospital, and to the
EMS staff who responded to
the call.
Thanks again for what you


that happen, but it's our job to
be critical.
And we're going to keep
doing that.
It's our hope that as a result
of the criticism citizens will get
involved in the dialogue and
debate of the process. And out
of that public debate better
decisions can be made.
The very backbone of our
form of participatory govern-
ment is that citizens (including
the newspaper) can criticize
the actions of government.
Let's enjoy the art of offering
constructive criticism, but let's

Those questions I responded
to with a fairly firm opinion
were:
"Public relations material is
usually publicity disguised as
news."
Response: "Agree." Still,
there's a big range in the types
of organizations PR people
work for and in the types of
information distributed.
'"Journalists and public rela-
tions practitioners carry on a
running battle."
Response: 'Agree." PR peo-
ple are paid to filter and sanitize
information. News people are
paid to give it to you straight
"The massiveness of the
impact of public relations
makes it harder for the average
citizen to know when he is
being sold a bill of goods."
Response: "Agree." Why
would a company that's pro-


all did for him and me.
Also, we would like to
commend Rosemarie in the |
Seven Rivers Emergency ^
Department for her special '
attention she gave to my hus- ^
band and to our family. We -
would also like to express
our appreciation to Pastor ,
Gill and the EMS chaplain H-
for their support at the hos- -
pital.

bless you!

CbRus COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE COMMENTARY sSSLNDw, jui'~' 15, 20() ~


A failing Congress
I'm neither a Democrat nor a
Republican, but I am a taxpay-
er and I have to notice that the
Democrat majority in Congress
which Congress has the low-
est approval rating of any
Congress in history has
spent the first 100 days in
office on more than 300 inves-
tigations and more than 600
oversight hearings. These activ-
ities have nothing to do with
the serious issues that confront
our nation now. They are pay-
ing no attention to those
things. They are merely spend-
ing our taxpayer money on
investigations that don't war-
rant any activity, and paying no
attention to the important
things like insurance reform,
like immigration reform, or
Social Security reform or any of
the other bills that need atten-
tion by the Congress of this
country. States are having to
enact their own laws regarding
immigration because Congress
is failing to do so. So I hope
when voters who are taxpay-
ers regardless of party go to
the polls, they look at the
record of what has happened
in the last three to four months
and pay attention to that when
they vote again.
Firefighters steamed
I'm a retired professional
firefighter. I just received my
firefighting magazine. I have
never seen our union put down
a candidate for presidency the
way they have for Rudy
Giuliani. They've endorsed
them through the years, but


have never put one down. He is
the only candidate for presi-
dent who did not show up at
the firefighters' meeting to talk
to the firefighters. All the other
candidates showed up. As I
stated, they've never ever put a
candidate down. They've
endorsed them, but what they
have said about Giuliani and
what I have seen and heard is
the truth. He definitely would
not make a good president. I
don't know who else is running,
but definitely I wouid never
vote for him.
Flagship of the Left
To the Sound Off caller who
thanks me for alerting him or
her to "The Nation:" Typical of
your leftwing dissemination of
information, you forgot to men-
tion they're self-described as
the flagship of the left. Their
political allegiance is social
progressive liberal. It has lost
money in all but three of four
years of operation and it's sus-
tained by a group of approxi-
mately 25,000 vendors called
social progressive liberal
Democrats. Yeah, they could
use your money.
Maintain foliage
I sure hope the parks depart-
ment changes its plan to cut
away the foliage from the
boardwalk so that we can see
the courthouse. The whole point
of the boardwalk is to escape
into nature and to get away
from the town and the traffic
and the sight of all the build-
ings. There's no point in having
a boardwalk where we see the
town. We can see the town by


walking around the town.
No 'Raw' for mom
This is about TV. This is
Monday, July 9, and that's all I
see on commercials is about
the program they're sponsoring
for tonight at 9 o'clock, and
that's called "Raw." I wouldn't
look at that if they paid me. But
there is one thing: My mother
liked wrestling- I mean
wrestling and that was up in
New Britain, Conn., and she
would go down to the arena and
watch men wrestle. But I don't
think she would like the pro-
gram "Raw" I know I don't.
Hire more deputies
I'd like to make a suggestion
that they put the new
Emergency Operations Center
on hold for a couple of years
and turn around and hire 100
additional road deputies and
put them out in the neighbor-
hoods at night in an attempt to
catch the mailbox bashers and
the garbage can dumpers.
We've got a terrible problem in
Inverness anymore.
Tennis times
It's Saturday, July 7, and
Sunday, July 8, the last two
days of Wimbledon and the
Chronicle did not put what time
they started or what channel to
watch it on in "On the air-
waves." What gives? Why not?
Select, not elect
I don't agree with the
Chronicle's editorial about Fred


Ramlow being appointed to fill
Sophia Diaz-Fonseca's term on
the city council. Everybody else
had to work hard and let the
voters know how they stand on
the issues. So now the city
manager and city council uni-
laterally select a losing candi-
date for a job that people did-
n't vote for in the first place. It
may save the city money, but it
takes away from the rights and
wishes of the voters. It would
be a terrible thing to see this
policy extended to other areas
of our government. I, therefore,
disagree with the Chronicle that
this was a good decision. I just
hope that it doesn't get the
same chance to select the next
president, that Bush doesn't
get the same chance to select
the next president. Otherwise,
hello President Cheney.
Downgrade to basic
I got so tired of seeing
repeats on all the cable chan-
nels and those animated pop-
ups that constantly distracted
from my viewing pleasure, that
I had to take a drastic measure
and cut down on my cable
access channels. I called the
cable company, but they say
they were powerless to do any-
thing. I... downgraded to only
the basic channels. This is not
a hard decision to make. I
saved a lot of money and I can
use it for my gas tank.
Saving wildlife
I wanted to comment on part
of Gerry Mulligan's column of


Sound OFF


July 8. He wrote about the dis-
regard for nature and its crea-
tures the speeding boat owner
had for the manatee they sliced
and killed. He writes of peo-
ple's responsibility to know how
to avoid these sad situations. I
have witnessed the same type
of situation time and again
with regard to gopher tortoises.
A certain property owner has
continually run over active bur-
rows while brush hogging the
right of way. FWC has been
notified many times. And until
the laws in place are duly
enforced, until people's atti-
tudes regarding coexistence
with wildlife change, and until
people take a personal respon-
sibility to respect and recog-
nize the right of these benign
creatures to life, nothing will
change and these situations
will only increase.
Take down signs
I'm calling in response to the
"Beverly Hills police," the
woman who called about the
members of the Beverly Hills
Association. The members of
the Beverly Hills Association
stand behind them ... for taking
down signs. If you live in a
deed-restricted area, it is in your
bylaws about signs. We moved
here to get away from that sort
of thing. It's degrading and a
sore sight. The association has
a box where you can put your,
notice in and take the time to
inquire about it and stop mak-
ing our beautiful Beverly Hills
look like a flea market. You
could also rent a table in the
club for their craft fairs to show
your things from your garage...

Scared of 'Sicko'
Why is the Regal Theaters
afraid to show "Sicko" in Citrus
County? Could it be because
there's so many retired people
here with so-called medical
insurance?
Just keep a secret
* When telephone solicitors call
to survey my political opinion, I
do not get overzealous in trying
to slam the phone down, blow a
whistle or use foul language. I
merely state even to my own
party that my vote is a
secret vote guaranteed by the
Constitution and I will not
answer their questions. No mat-
ter what the question is, my
answer is always the same: "My
vote is a secret vote." They get
frustrated before I do. I win.
Raising intelligence
Joe Lieberman has already
raised the average intelligence
level of the Democratic Party
by being elected as an inde-
pendent by the Republicans.
Now if he will go ahead and
join the Republican Party, he
can raise the average intelli-
gence level for that party.
Dying young
As I approach my 66th birth-
day here in Citrus County, I am
getting very nervous. Has any-
one noticed the ages of the
people dying here? In Sunday's
Chronicle, July 8, eight out of
the 11 deceased listed were
younger than 70. Someone
should check into this, as it
seems to be a trend here in
Citrus County. .

Council aims to help veterans
^~ J^mi^^^H


VEDC can match
businesses with
government help
MIKE WRIGHT
mwright@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
Disabled veterans who own Citrus
County businesses could get a leg up on
federal government contracts thanks to a
.newly formed organization.
,he Veterans Economic Development
Council of Citrus County, or VEDC, will
Asist companies to take advantage of a
TUle requiring that a percentage of all


government contracts go to veteran-
owned businesses.
American Legion Post 155 of Crystal
River under the leadership of post com-
mander Bob Pennington created the
VEDC. There are no dues or fees to
receive assistance.
By law, 3 percent of federal government
contracts should be awarded to business-
es in specialty groups, such as minority-
owned or veteran-owned.
At a minimum, a disabled American
veteran-owned business must perform
and receive profits of 15 percent of a con-
struction contract and 51 percent of a
service contract
Non-veteran businesses interested in
partnering with DAV businesses to get
government contracts are also encour-
aged to register with the VEDC.


Bernie Leven, a non-veteran who is the
group's business recruiter, said the pro-
gram gives Citrus County business own-
ers the opportunity to tap into a little-
known resource.
Generally, it works like this:
A federal government agency or mili-
tary branch seeks bids for a project The
Citrus County VEDC recruits businesses
to bid on those projects, and then the
organization submits a bid for the entire
project on the local business's behalf.
Leven said hundreds of millions of dol-
lars in government contracts are awarded
every year. The potential for Citrus
County businesses, he said, is limitless.
"We've got this opportunity to really
help the citizens of this county," he said.
"We're just going to take it and show
everyone what we can do."


CAN THE VEDC HELP YOU?
Opportunities are available
in a number of trades, including:
* Heating and air conditioning.
* Information technology.
* Electrical.
* All types of manufacturing.
* Engineering.
* Pest control.
* Fire protection.
* Surveying.
* Environmental.
For more information, call Bernie
Leven at (352) 522-0009.

Writer shares tips for overcoming coupon rejection


Shoppers often share their
stories of cashiers rejecting
legitimate coupons frus-
trating and, at times, embarrass-
ing scenes.
I recently experienced coupon
rejection myself. Here's how I
overcame cashiers' concerns
without making a scene.


To be fair, the cashiers who
rejected my coupons were
teenagers working at my stores as
temporary summer help.
Therefore, they may not have
been familiar with their employ-
er's coupon policies.
When this happens, I politely
explain to the cashier how the


store's policy works, and how he
should enter the coupon into the
store's system. When you calmly
and confidently explain the store
policy, the cashier is usually so
taken aback by your familiarity
with the policies that he accepts
the coupon. In most cases, the
employee called the manager to


the register to get assistance with
the transaction.
Here are some of the problems
I faced, and how I resolved them:
Competitor store's coupon:
When I presented a "$5 off $25
order" store coupon for a local

Members further industry

It's important to

be involved with the CCBA
re you a member of the CCBA? When asked this
question, often the answer is "Why should I be?"
when in fact, the better question is: Why shouldn't
you be?
Membership with your local Home Builders Association
is support of your industry through and through. Standing
alone, a small business is "a voice in the dark," but by join-
ing other members of the team, what can be accomplished
is nothing short of amazing.

Business DIGEST


That response made me
laugh! I explained that their
store would be reimbursed $20
so they would actually profit
one penny, and that she should
deduct $19.99 as a miscella-
neous coupon. She called her
manager for assistance and
that is exactly what the manag-
er did.
In another instance, I had a
$1 coupon for an item I was
buying at my local grocery store
that was on sale for 99 cents.
Again, the system rejected the
coupon so the cashier handed
the coupon back to me and sug-
gested I save it until the price
was higher. The cashier said,
"You would be getting the item
free if you used that coupon." I
said yes, that was the whole
idea! He called the manager for
assistance and she taught him
how to take 99 cents off for each
item. Because I had six
coupons and was buying six
items, that extra step saved me
about $6.
Had I not tried to overcome
these objections, I would have
missed out on $51 of savings in
one week When that amount of
money is involved, it's worth
being very familiar with your
stores' coupon policies. Pay
attention to how the experi-
enced cashiers deal with spe-
cial coupons so that you can
easily overcome objections in
the future.

her savings tips as a regular

COUPON
Continued from Page 1D

drugstore from my coupon
book, my grocery store's
cashier said I couldn't use it
because I was not buying a pre-
scription. However, my grocery
store's policy is to accept com-
petitors' coupons, and the drug-
store coupon did not have any
restrictions on the type of mer-
chandise that qualified for the
$25 minimum purchase.
Because the drugstore sells
many of the same items that the
grocery store does, they are
competitors in my book I
politely explained to the
cashier that their store policy is
to accept competitor coupons,
that this coupon did not specify
prescription purchases, and
that all she had to do was enter
the coupon under their
"Competitor Coupon" category.
That made sense to her, so she
,took the $5 coupon off.
Competitor pharmacy's
coupon: In a similar situation,
the cashier at my local CVS
Pharmacy looked at me blankly
when I presented a "get a $20
store gift card with a new pre-
scription" direct-mail coupon
from my local Walgreens store.
Again, I explained that it is
CVS's policy to accept competi-
tors' pharmacy coupons. She
processed the coupon and gave
me a $20 CVS gift card.
Coupons that exceed pur-
chase price: This happened to
me twice recently. At one store,
I had a $20 off coupon for an
item that was on sale for $19.99.
Because the system rejected
the coupon, the teenage
cashier handed the coupon
back to me and said, "you can
save this for next time when the
price is higher."

Citrus United Basket is in
immediate need of all
types of food items. With
gasoline prices averaging
almost $3.00 per gallon and
jobs associated with the build-
ing industry almost extinct,
Citrus United Basket has seen
a tremendous increase in
request for food assistance.
Since the beginning of 2007,
CUB has been assisting over
810 families per month at a
cost of $8,800 per month. This
is an increase of 292 families
per month than in 2006. During
the same time span we have
also recognized a reduction in
our cash donations.
At the beginning of June we
had enough food to last us until
the last week of the month. We
had hoped that normal dona-
tions would last us until the
end of June, unfortunately this
has not happened. With every-
one having to cut back due to
ever increasing costs, we at
CUB realize how difficult it is
simply to make ends meet
We are asking that Citrus
County residents once again to
dig deep and assist CUB with
essential food items so that we

tion of our "Welcome Home" baskets
that we are coordinating with local
businesses and corporations
throughout the county. The gift bas-
kets contain the donations of servic-
es, gifts, gift cards, and cash in
hopes we can also give them each
a mini vacation, a special thank you
for serving our country. If you are
able to assist in this endeavor,
please feel free to call 352-422-6236
with any questions. Checks can be
mailed payable to VFW Womens
Auxiliary #4252 and mailed to PO

The Citrus County Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. Pictured front row: Chamber Ambassador
Kandy Krementz, Carolyn Yant REVERSE Mortgage Consultant; Chamber Ambassadors Lillian Smith, Bonnie Hardiman and Rhonda
Lestinsky. Pictured back row: Chamber Ambassadors John Porter, David Heinz and Crystal Jefferson. Carolyn Yant is a REVERSE Mortgage
Consultant through Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. She invites you to make the most of your retirement with a reverse mortgage from Wells
Fargo Home Mortgage. The ability to turn your equity into income is what most distinguishes a reverse mortgage from other loans, and it's
what makes it so valuable to many senior homeowners. To be eligible for a reverse mortgage, all owners listed on the home's title must be
at least 62 years of age and occupy the home as their principal residence for the majority of the year. However you plan to use your equi-
ty whether traveling, paying medical expenses, improving your home, or just adding a bit of cushion to your monthly budget you'll
have a golden opportunity to put your nest egg to good use. Carolyn Yant can be reached at 352- 208-0897.

Top local real estate agents host-
ed a phone bank on Monday, July 9
at the Realtors Association of Citrus
County office to help Big Brothers
Big Sisters and Boys and Girls
Clubs of Citrus County raise funds
through ticket sales for their annual
Corvette drawing. In just three
hours of making calls to their con-
tacts, 14 agents sold 134 tickets for
the new 2007 victory red Corvette,
courtesy of Steve and Jewel Lamb,
owners of Crystal Chevrolet in

ticket sales benefit Big Brothers Big

the drive with 22 tickets sold. Her
efforts earned her a weekend stay
in St. Augustine, Florida, courtesy of
Tally Ho Vacations & Educational
Tours. Spires-Hanssen, who is also
a board member for the Realtors
Association of Citrus County and
chairperson of its Young
Professionals Committee, helped to
lead this initiative to support Big

Girls Club of Citrus County. Bill
* Decker and Barry Cook from
Prudential Florida Showcase
Properties in Hemando sold a com-
bined 24 tickets, making them the
top ticket-selling real estate office.


Their efforts earned them a media
package valued at $2,000, com-
prised of advertising spots through
various local media outlets. The
Realtors Association expects more
sales in the next few days as they
continue to help in the effort. Big
Brothers Big Sisters and Boys &
Girls Clubs would like to thank the
all of the realtors who dedicated
their time to coordinating and partici-
pating in this effort and to everyone
who has purchased a ticket in sup-
port of their programs. The official
drawing for the Corvette will take
place on July 14 at Crystal
Chevrolet in Homosassa. Winner
need not be present. For more

Caladiums


add splash


of color

GARY K. ENGLAND
Special to the Chronicle
Do you want to add a splash of color to your
summer landscape? Then consider planting
one of the many varieties of caladium that
have been developed for the Florida land-
scape by researchers at the University of
Florida. This partial-shade to full-sun loving
plant thrives as a container plant or in the
ground and is well-adapted to the Florida cli-
mate. As a matter of fact, the city of Lake
Placid in south central Florida has long been
known as the "Caladium Capital of the
World," because approximately 95 percent of
the world's supply of the bulblike tubers
used to plant caladiums are produced on
1,200 acres of farms in the area.
Uses in the landscape
Many homeowners use both the fancy-leaf
(broad leaves) and lance-leaf (narrow leaves)
types in the various colors of caladium, rang-
ing from bright white to various shades of red
to brilliant pink, along with many intriguing
foliar patterns, as arrangements in pots or in
hariging baskets placed throughout the land-
scape. This very easy-to-grow plant is well-
adapted to container production.
Established plants can be purchased at the
local garden center and potted up for an
instant garden or established from readily
available tubers that are planted ahead of
time.
As with container-grown caladiums, those
planted in the soil can either be started from
tubers in the spring or from established

The 'hole' truth about Japanese netsuke collecting


Dear John: Enclosed are
photographs of two
carved ivory pieces
that I received as a gift for my
birthday over 35 years ago. The


person who gave
them to me said that
they were used on
monks' belt ties.
You can see from
one of the photos
there are two holes
on the bottom of
each piece. Both
pieces measure 1
1/2 inches long and
1 inch high. Can you
give me any more
information about
them and if they are
of any value? -
E. T., Homosassa


John Si
SIKOR
Afl


Dear E.T.: You have two
hand-carved netsuke, pro-
nounced net-skee, likely made
in Japan. As kimonos had no
pockets, Japanese men used a
pouch suspended from a waist
sash to keep daily items. A net-
suke, a miniature Japanese
carving made with two holes
within the carved design for a
cord, was used as a decorative
toggle to secure the pouch.
Netsuke were made of ivory,


bone, wood, metal and porce-
lain and have been a specific
category of collecting for
decades. Hand-carved ivory
netsuke have been reproduced
in large quantities
for at least 30 years.
One quick way to
separate reproduc-
tions from original-
era netsuke is the
location of the two
holes. Original net-
suke have the holes
placed such that it
hangs upright for
korski the viewer. Most
SKI S reproductions have
pgC the holes in the
wrong place for the
figure to hang
upright. The two you own have
the holes placed on the bottom
side, which would cause them
to hang upside down, thus they
are reproductions. Serious net-
suke collectors have no inter-
est in reproductions. Casual
collectors do not care and are
more interested in subject mat-
ter and quality. Potential dollar
value for your two netsuke is
less than $100 each.
Dear John: I have recently
unpacked several boxes of


Special to the Chronicle
These hand-carved netsuke, probably from Japan, were used to secure a pouch to a kimono. Although
authentic netsuke are valuable collectors' items, the placement of the holes on these two examples
shows that they are reproductions. They might still be of interest to casual collectors, however.


items from my mother's estate.
No big surprises, because each
of us kids selected the items we
wanted. One that I chose was a
large collection of old records,
mostly 33 1/3 RPMs but a few 45
RPMs. I was not even sure they
were good, but before I chose
them I played one on her
stereo turntable that we bought
her years ago and which I think
she never used. To my surprise,
not only did the stereo work


fine, but the recording sounded
great! Most of the records are
recordings of operas sung by
famous names of the past. They
probably date from the 1950s
and '60s, perhaps a few more
recent. Though I am curious to
know if there is value to these
recordings, I am not interested
in selling them. However, there
are 20 to 30 other records that I
have little interest in. Is there a
market for these? These are by


various artists, some jazz like
Shearing, Harry Belafonte, big
bands and others. M.D.,
Internet
Dear M.D.: Generally speak-
ing, popular records were pro-
duced in large quantities and
are not difficult to find in the
collecting marketplace and sell
for very affordable prices.

Summer is certainly .here in full
swing. With that comes vacationers,
pool parties, and beautiful flowers.
However, even the most amateur gar-
dener knows that it is difficult to grow
plants in Florida during the summer.
This is due to the intense heat and the
lack of rain. Even so, there are some
plants that do extremely well, no mat-
ter what the growing conditions.
Crape myrtles are one example.
Gwen Montalbano of Key Training
Center's nursery said crape myrtles are
considered the "Florida lilac." These
small trees can flourish in almost any
kind of soil, and bloom even without
much rain.
"Crape myrtles are really easy to
grow," said Marie Dumas, a homeown-
er with many successful crapes. "They
are one of the more easy plants to take
care of."
Crape myrtles, or "Lagerstroemia,"
as they are known scientifically, bloom
from May through September. They
come in a variety of colors and types.
Some have single trunks while others
have multiple trunks, depending on
how they are pruned.
Ray Pateracki of The Greenery has
been a gardener in Citrus County for 34
years.
"You need to water crape myrtles
every day when you first plant them
until they get established, which takes
two to three weeks," Pateracki said.
"Use a hose, not a watering can. They
need as much water as they can get"
Pateracki goes on to say that crapes
should be fertilized with a standard fer-
tilizer three times a year; in March,
June, and either late September or
early October. However, Dumas only
fertilizes her plants twice a year, once
in March and again in September
Crapes myrtles like to be in full sun.
And, as an added bonus, they grow well
no matter what the conditions.
"Crapes do well in any kind of soil,
which makes them great plants for
Florida," Montalbano said.
"They grow well even without lots of
rain," Dumas said.
Crape myrtles are deciduous plants,
meaning they lose their leaves during
the winter. But don't let that throw you
off. The one thing that is most impor-
tant for keeping crape myrtles looking
beautiful is pruning.
"I trim my crapes in February,"
Dumas said. "If you don't, you won't
have any new blooms for the summer."


Please see CRAPES/Page 17E


DAVE SIGLER/Chroniclde
ABOVE: Marie Dumas has the crape myrtles cut back every February. The pruning allows the plants to flower and flourish dur-
ing the entire blooming season. BELOW: Crape myrtles will bloom twice during the season if you cut back the flowers.

FAST FACTS ABOUT
CRAPE MYRTLES
Are sometimes called "Florida's lilac."
N Bloom beginning in May and ending in
September.
Must be fertilized two to three times a
year.
Must be trimmed back in January or
February.
Will keep blooming with regular pruning.
Should be planted in sunny areas.
Come in a variety of bright colors.
Are deciduous, meaning they lose their
leaves in winter; the leaves return in
March.
Can grow anywhere between 5 and 20
feet tall.

Their leaves start coming
back in March and begin
blooming in May.
"Once the blooms start dying

plants set out anytime during the sum-
mer. Most varieties do the best in a par-
tial-shade location in the landscape.
The optimum would be three to four
hours of sunlight in the morning, with
partial- to full-shade in the afternoon.
Many varieties will also grow well in
full sun, but the intensity of their color
can be diminished.

Establishment and care
For container-grown caladiums,
choose a soil media that has good mois-
ture retention. Plant smaller tubers
with the growing tip pointed up and
cover with an inch or an inch-and-a-half
of media. Use smaller size container
plants, if this method of establishment is
chosen. In the ground, caladiums grow
best in a soil that is high in organic mat-
ter and that has good aeration and sur-
face drainage. Use of compost and
mulches can aid in increasing organic
matter content in sandier locations. In
the spring, caladium tubers should be
planted 18 inches apart and two inches
deep, with the growing tip pointed
upward. Nursery plants are established
just like other bedding plants. If soil
temperatures are expected to fall below
60 degrees during the winter, tubers
may be dug and stored for the next sea-
son after foliage declines in the fall.
This situation would apply for much of
inland Citrus County.
Care should be taken to maintain
adequate soil moisture and a moderate
level of fertility. If caladiums are
allowed to wilt, they may go into dor-
mancy and not produce any additional
foliage. Maintain moderate levels of
fertility with an even-balance slow-
release fertilizer such as a 14-14-14 or
biweekly foliar applications of a solu-
ble 20-20-20. Sites with lower soil
organic matter may require slightly
higher rates of fertilizer.
Pest pressure in caladium is rela-
tively low. Occasionally, foliar insects
such as 'aphids or caterpillars may
make plants unsightly looking. Monitor
for these pests and either physically
remove low infestations or choose an
insecticide approved for home land-
scapes to manage the population, if
they persist The only major disease is

tuber rot, a problem encountered when
tuber storage temperatures fall below
60 degrees. Inspection of tubers before
planting will eliminate this disease.
Nematodes will build up in areas
where caladiums are grown for a long
period of time, especially if soil organ-
ic matter is low. If caladiums in one
portion of the landscape begin to
decline in quality and appearance
from one season to the next, consider
moving to another site for establish-
ment of new plants in the next season.
