Citrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy says
he can save Crystal River taxpayers up
to $500,000 a year and provide law
enforcement that meets or exceeds cur-
rent levels.
Dawsy will make his pitch Monday
night to consolidate the Crystal River


Police Department with the sheriff's
office.
Dawsy is preparing a power-point
presentation that should last about one
hour, Mayor Ron Kitchen said. After
that, the public may ask questions.
The sheriff invited city council mem-
bers to meet individually with him late
last week and Monday to hear the pro-

Cowboys and children all took part in the sixth annual Southern Heritage Festival and Cattle Drive at the
Historic Hernando School fundraiser.

Families share history at Southern Heritage Festival


KERI LYNN MCHALE

Chronicle
Sucked in a room in back of
the Historic Hernando
School, women were fast
at work cutting green tomatoes.
In between slices, they dished
stories, slowly unraveling the
history of Hernando.
Outside, little cowboys and
cowgirls enjoyed hayrides and
"Simon Smarty Britches," the
trick donkey. They sang along to
country songs, moseyed to the
Cracker Cafe and sipped on
sweat tea.
The annual Southern Heritage
Festival and Cattle Drive is a
good ol' backyard family
reunion, Hernando Heritage
Council of the Citrus County
Historic Society Co-Chairwoman
Chris Dudley said. It's an oppor-
tunity for locals to experience
history as they munch on crack-
ling corn bread and pudding and
rock in rocking chairs until the
cows come home literally.
"He's got pork and chicken
crankin'," Dudley said as a vol-
unteer cook added to the sweet
smells in the air. Meanwhile,
locals gathered around picnic
tables, looked at antique quilts


HERNANDO HISTORY
History from volunteers at the Sixth Annual Southern Heritage
Festival and Cattle Drive:
* "I taught here right at this school," said Evelyn (Richardson)
Tribble, who taught kindergarten in the 1980s at the "red-brick"
school now known as the Historic Hernando School. "My daddy
was the traffic guard right out there," Tribble said.
* "I was .born in Holder (in 1955) before there was a hospital," said
Darlene Bellamy, daughter of Abraham Bellamy and granddaugh-
ter of William Bellamy.
i "I come from a long line of Hernandians," said Mellannie
(Whitton) Forrester, who lives in the same house, on the same
block in Hernando where her parents live and she was raised.
"I'm very proud of my heritage."


while their children ran around
and played games barefoot in
the grass.
This is the sixth year residents
have been able to step into the
past at the Southern Heritage
Festival. For some, the festival
celebrates the roots of their fam-
ily trees.
"I was born right over here
where the used car lot is," Edith
(Croft) Parsons said, as she pre-
pared fried green tomatoes.
"The bell was rung when it
was time to get to school,"
Parsons continued, recalling her
time at the second grammar
school built in Hernando, a
white-framed, three-room


Fadg ailhq


school. "You could hear the bell
all over town and everyone knew
it was time to get to school."
The Historic Hernando
School, formerly known as
Lakeview School at the corner of
U.S. 41 and Parsons Point Road,
.was'the third grammar school
built in Hernando and opened
around 1946, Parsons' cousin
Francis (Spooner) Brooks,
explained. The first school was
located on the north edge of
Hernando Lake and the second
was a white-framed school on
U.S. 41.

Termination


policy would


stop appeals


County considers new

firing procedure
MIKE WRIGHT
mwright@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
Citrus County officials are hoping to
avoid a repeat of last summer's saga
involving former assistant county
administrator Tom Dick.
Not the firing part.
The due-process part. '
County Administrator
June Fisher is consider-
ing a policy that would
hold the jobs of senior
staff member directly
accountable to her,
where any decisions on
termination or suspen- June Fisher
sion could not be fired Tom Dick
appealed. in June.
Instead, senior staff
members department directors,
office managers and the assistant coun-
ty administrator would be offered
severance packages upon termination.
The policy would eliminate appeals
hearings before the county administra-
tor or her designee.
Fisher fired Dick, a 25-year county
veteran, in June for insubordination.
Fisher also said Dick was under the
influence of alcohol during a staff meet-
ing, though she did not include that
allegation in her written reasons for his
dismissal. Dick has denied the allega-
tions that he was drinking.
The county's personnel policy
allowed Dick to have a post-determina-
tion hearing presided by Fisher, which
he did. Fisher upheld her earlier deci-
sion and Dick, as allowed in the person-
nel policy, appealed that decision to a
post-determination hearing.
Fisher appointed County Attorney
Robert "Butch" Battista to oversee that
hearing. Battista, after getting testimo-
ny from Fisher and Dick, upheld the fir-
ing.
Dick said the process was unfair
because the person overseeing the
appeal is the same person who fired
him. He says he plans to sue the county.
Fisher said in an interview last week
that several counties. have senior staff
members under contract with the top
administrator. She said the contractual
relationship is similar to the one she
has with the county commission that
allows for severance pay if the commis-
sion ends the contract

posal. Councilman John
Kostelnick said he declined
that invitation because he
wanted to hear the presenta-
tion in a public meeting.
In his report, Dawsy prom-
ises that Crystal River tax-
payers will get the same or
better police protection than
they're getting now from the
city police force.
. "By combining resources
with the sheriff's office, the
;,continue to enjoy the highest
:level of law enforcement
:-services, but at a significantly
'lower cost," Dawsy's report
,,states.
o, The council, led by Phil
'Price, voted to ask Dawsy for
a proposal that offered no
less than the services now in
place by Crystal River Police.
The council is divided on
the issue. Councilmen Jim
Farley and Kostelnick oppose
plans to turn over law
enforcement to the sheriff.
Price favors it, while Kitchen
and Councilwoman Maureen
McNiff said they wanted to

p.m. Friday, at Dunnellon City Hall,
20750 River Drive (on U.S. 41).
Speaker is Gary Mormino, author
of "Land of Sunshine, State of
Dreams, A Social History of
Modern Florida."
Mormino is co-director of the
Florida Studies program at the
University of South Florida in St.
Petersburg and has written exten-
sively about Florida history and
immigrant communities. Come and
hear about the people who have
contributed to Florida's modern his-


hear more.
Kitchen said Friday that he
was leaning against consoli-
dation but might have
changed his mind.
"I went into that meeting
happy with what we had,"
Kitchen said.
"My attitude
was the sher- E WHAT: Crysta

what he had
to offer was WHERE: City
better. I think
he's done
that. He made the case that
the citizens of Crystal River
will have the same and better
service, and save significant
amounts of money."
Dawsy's proposal is broken
down into two timelines:
January through September;
then the fiscal year that runs
Oct. 1, 2008 through Sept. 30,
2009.
It also offers two staffing
scenarios. One dedicates 15
full-time sheriff's positions,
including eight deputies and
four patrol sergeants. That
proposal, which allows three
road patrol officers on duty
per shift, would save the city
about $370,011 the first year.
The secondary scenario is


tory. There will be a book signing
after the program. The program is
sponsored by the Florida
Humanities Council and there is no
charge. For information, call Nita at
489-4196.

Dawsy's recommendation for
staffing. It adds two deputies
for a total of 10 but removes
the patrol sergeants, instead
utilizing his current struc-
ture. He said that proposal
would save the city $500,703
the first year.

Hall on U.S. 19 current lev-
els. He said
his office will


use 2006 and 2007 averages as
benchmarks for response
time and traffic enforcement.
The report also promises to
bring Crystal River police
officers onto the sheriff's
payroll. "The CRPD staff,
when combined with the
sheriff's office, will enjoy
excellent pay and benefits
with greater opportunity for
advancement," the report
states.
The report does not cap
annual increases in costs, but
it notes that the budget
increases for the city
Inverness increased 6 per-
cent the first year, 9.7 percent
the second year and 2.6 per-
cent the third year.


The club holds regular meetings
on the fourth Monday monthly in
the Beverly Hills Center. Meetings
are from 7 to 9 p.m. Coffee and
refreshments are served and all vis-
itors are most welcome. The club
features a variety of activities every
month ranging from speakers on
local or British topics, cards, bingo
or trivia quiz. Local visits to muse-
ums and sites of interest, theatre
and garden trips are also arranged.
Call Derek Johnson at 382-1611
for more information.
From staff reports


Price, who met with Dawsy
on Friday, said the sheriff
attributed that high second
year increase to workers'
compensation costs.
"The only issue I wished he
would agree to which he
won't is a cap," Price said.
"The fact that he hasn't
gouged Inverness, though,
makes me feel better."
Farley, who retired as the
CRPD chief, is meeting with
Dawsy on Monday- even
though he won't change his
mind in opposing the change.
"I campaigned on the plat-
.form of saving our police
department and since elect-
ed I have consistently stayed
with that," he said. "As a pro-
fessional courtesy, I want to
hear everything the sheriff
has to say. If I'm outvoted, I'll
try to do everything I can to
facilitate a smooth transi-
tion."
Both Price and Kitchen
said they hope for a good
public turnout at Monday's
council meeting, which
begins 7 p.m. at city hall.
"It's one of those issues
where I'm digesting all the
information," Kitchen said.
"I'm putting a lot of weight on
the public."

Hernando as a town full of hous-
es, residents and wandering cat-
tle. The cousins, both born in
1927, laughed as they exchanged
school memories. Brooks
recalled a time when she was in
11th grade and
was asked to

school at the time because the
boys left to fight in World War II.
Brooks' parents, who were
born in 1901, attended first
grade at the first grammar
school located on the north side
of Hernando Lake. In 1908, they
started second grade at Brooks'
grammar school, the white-
framed school. The cousins have
deep roots in Hernando.
"Our grandmother was a Van
Ness and our grandfather was a
Croft," Parsons said.
Brooks' and Parsons' cousins,
Rachel (Ogle) Burnette and
Virginia (Sellars) Ellis shared
more stories about their grand-
parents.

"The first settlers were our
grandparents, Croft and Van
Ness," Burnette said. "Now
you're talking' about the very first
settlers, honey"
Remnants of their family's
past still stand in Hernando.
Their grandmother, who was a
Croft, established the Hernando
Church of Nazarene, Burnette
said.

tears swelled
in her eyes
when she talked about her par-
ents and grandparents, the good
old days and the hardships.
"His heart and soul was in
Hernando," Burnette said of her
father, Huey Ogle, who ran
Ogle's Tourist Camp in
Hernando many years ago.
The names of historic families
such as Bellamy, Croft, Van Ness,
Parsons, Rooks and Spooner can
be seen throughout Hernando
on signs for cemeteries, streets,
stores, 'farms and landmarks
such as lakes.
'"They were good people, I'll
tell ya," Burnette said ofher long
line of relatives. "They went
through some hard times,, my
Lord."


POLICY
Continued from Page 1A

Fisher said that senior staff
members should be held to a
"higher level of service than
line employees."
The draft policy, obtained
by the Chronicle through a


public records
request, would
continue to
allow discipli-
nary hearings
for division
directors and
other employ-
ees.
As for senior
staff members,
the policy
reads: "These
senior staff
members
serve at the
discretion of
the county
administra-
tor."


County lal

County labor attorney
Heather Brock, who wrote
the proposed language for
Fisher's review, said the sev-
erance package could be used
as a recruitment tool.


"It would also provide sen-
ior staff members a measure
of financial security in the
event of an involuntary sepa-
ration from employment,"
Brock wrote.
The policy would. require
county commission approval.
Commissioner Vicki
Phillips said she knew Fisher
was working on a policy but
she didn't know
bor attor- the details.

"We never
envisioned the
problems it would cause in
respect to hearings and the
process to go through for ter-
mination of senior staff,"
Phillips said. "It's written
more for lower-level employ-
ees."

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
795-5700 or visit our

2007 Veterans Appreciation
Week Commemorative Pin:
Disabled American Veterans,
Gerald A. Shonk Chapter 70 of
Inverness once again is sponsoring
the Citrus County Veterans
Appreciation Week
Commemorative Pin. In keeping
with this year's theme, "Purple
Heart Recipients Saluting Our
Wounded Warriors," the design of
the pin is the U.S. Flag, the shape
of Citrus County superimposed
with the Purple Heart Medal.
These unique pins honoring
Citrus County's wounded warriors
are available at all area chamber of
commerce offices, Veterans
Service Office in Lecanto, and at
The Ice Cream Dr. and Career
Choice Uniforms in Inverness. The
pins will also be available at the
DAV booth during the Veterans
Fair at the Crystal River Mall on
Nov. 3, the Golden Corral Nov. 10

Inverness following the Veterans
Day parade on Nov. 10.
The pins may also be obtained
by calling John Seaman, commem-
orative pin chairman at 860-0123.
A $2.50 donation is requested.
n Cmdr. Martin P. Murphy and
The Disabled American Veterans
(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. It is a great program, and
we would really appreciate the
community's involvement.
The program will accept any
make or model phone. You may
drop off phones and attached bat-
teries as well as accessories at any
Citrus County School or the DAV at
North Independence Highway and
U.S. 41 North. The phones are
then recycled for cash to purchase
cards or unlimited free video phone
calls. If you have any questions
regarding this program, call
Annamarie Perrigo at the DAV at
344-3464 on Tuesdays or

GUIDE
Continued from Page A2

caked with mud up to our
knees, we were happy that we
were the first people to arrive
on the scene that morning and
have the opportunity to dry out.
The harmonious and masterful
stonework blends into the moun-
tain landscape as if created on a
palette. The precision with which
stone structures, and entire com-
munity, were built continues to be
a structural achievement beyond
today's comprehension. Terraces
cut into the mountainside, used
for farming, are reminiscent of
the rice paddies in Japan. Huge
hewn stones, impeccably placed,
have endured earthquakes over
the centuries, and are still tightly
in place with no apparent dam-
age.
Most visits to Machu Picchu
are daytrips out of Cuzco.
However, there is a small hotel
on the mountain next to the
ruins and several newer hotels
at the base in Aguas Calientes.
Wherever you choose to stay,
the images of Machu Picchu
will be with you to treasure for
a lifetime.

Lecanto swimmers

make splash at pool


JON-MICHAEL SORACCHI
jmsoracchi@

Chronicle
CLERMONT The Lecanto
swim team has a habit after
emerging victorious following
one of its meets.
So when Panthers coach
Frank Bachteler ended up in
the pool via his swimmers at the
Clermont National Training
Center, it was a good sign.
Lecanto had a banner day as
a team after the girls took the
overall District 2A-5 team title
with 317 points while the boys


settled for a runner-up honor
with 241, a distant second to
Land O'Lakes (501 points).
Upon finding out about the
good showings by both Panther
teams, the swimmers rounded
in a circle, counted to three,
clapped three times and let out
a prolonged 'Goooooooooo
Panthers!'
Bachteler, although soaking
wet, was pleased to witness the
girls' triumph.
"I'm happy," Bachteler said,
"but I know we didn't swim the
fastest times we could have.

SWIMMERS

Continued from Page 1B

"For the school, it's very
good," Bachleter continued.
"We have parents who support
us and we finally have our own
training facilities."
Overall the event, which
spanned the course of almost
11 hours, was a success for the
swimmers of Citrus County.
The best individual feats
came from Citrus female swim-
mer Erin Cregan. The
Hurricanes sophomore took
home a pair of district titles in
the 200 and 500-yard freestyle
races.
Cregan completed the 200-


meter race in 2:11.45 to defeat
Ridgewood's Melissa Bell by
almost four seconds. Then
Cregan won the 500 in domi-
nating fashion, enjoying a nine-
second win after swimming a
time of 5:51.31.
"Yeah, I did well," said
Cregan of her performance.
"I was hoping to get a 5:50 in
the 500."
Lecanto had four swimmers
combine to win the team's only
district title in an event Calli
Brockett, Cassie Durham,
Chelsea Toomey and Kathleen
Lyons won the 400-yard
freestyle relay by the slimmest
of margins.
The Panthers female quartet
came in with a time of 4:12.05,
just four-hundredths of a sec-


ond faster than the second-
place squad from Hudson.
Lou Tamposi qualified for
the regional tournament in
four different events by finish-
ing second in the 200 and 500-
yard freestyle while also team-
ing with brother Joe, Garrett
LeMon and Matt Bouthillier to
finish second in the 400-yard
freestyle relay and fourth (just
behind Citrus, who was third)
in the 200-yard medley relay.
Also, Brandin Larkin broke
the one-minute mark in the
with a 59.99 in the 100-yard
backstroke. The Citrus senior
finished second to Sunlake's
Stephen Morrison (57.03).

tournament's full results.

Citrus County tennis
players showed up
in record numbers
for the 3rd Annual Crystal
River Fall Tennis Fest at
Crystal River High School.
The best warmup ever was
provided, not by doing
jumping jacks or running
around the courts, but by
bulging those muscles and
handling the squeegees on
all eight courts before play
could begin.
Some of the players
jumped at the opportunity
and made sure the event

THE F


could start at the delayed hour. It even
took a blower, donated by Taylor
Rental, to finish the job. It was close to
10:00 am when the first players went
on the courts. Needless to say that
with over 90 players it was a very busy
day of tennis. In order to be able to
catch up the first round consisted of a
pro-set. A second way to get back on
schedule was to use some courts in
other parts of the city. All in all, every-
body was very cooperative and it
worked out great. The only way that an


event like this can be pulled
of is with sponsors like
Stumpknockers Restau-
rants, Top Seed Tennis &
Soccer and Baseline
Stringing (Myrt & Bob

Citrus' Nichols, Crystal River girls and boys win invitation-


LARRY BUGG
For the Chronicle
CRYSTAL RIVER Just
who was that girl?
Citrus High sophomore
Brandi Nichols ran a personal
record 20:57 to win the girls
race Saturday morning at the
Crystal River Invitational.
She just beat Crystal River
High senior Danielle Dixon
down the stretch. Dixon, who
was overcoming a bout with
bronchitis, had a 21:03.
Chloe Benoist, the sensation-
al Seven Rivers Christian sev-
enth grader, was third with a
21:20.
Nichols surprised everyone
with her race.
"I'm really tired," said
Nichols. "This is the first time I
have won a race for the school.
I have won my age group a cou-
ple of times. The rocks are real-
ly hard to run through."
Citrus High girls coach Billy
Bass was thoroughly pleased
with Nichols.
"Brandi ran a PR on this
course," said Bass. "She ran an
incredible race today Danielle
passed her back but Brandi
passed her again. She is only a
sophomore. Kate Young (sixth,
21:57) is one of the volleyball
players who also do cross coun-
try. She ran an incredible race.
She got sixth place. The whole
varsity ran well. We took second."
Dixon was running her home
course for the last time and she
did her share of huffing and
puffing.
Dixon led the Crystal River
girls to a team title with 29
points.
"This is my first race back,"
said Dixon. "I am hurt but it's
part of the game. I stayed with
her (Nichols) a little while but
she brought it on in. It was a lit-
tle wet out there but it rained
just enough to impact every-
thing. So far, this is my best
race of the year."


The Pirate coach was per-
fectly pleased with Dixon.
"She ran a PR on this
course," said coach Lisa Carter.
"It could be our school record.
Danielle ran a great race. They
all ran well, even my JV The
rain packed it down. There
wasn't as much sugarsand."
The Lecanto girls finished
fifth with 128 points.
"They ran hard," said
Lecanto coach Lindsay Clark.
"Some of them were close to
their best times. Nikki Bruno
was first today. She and Paige
Cook trade off at number one.
They did a little above average
for this course."
Hernando High's Tyler
Maier won the individual boys
race with a 16:41 time. Crystal
River High's Blair Beeler was
second with a 16:45, the best
time ever by a Pirate runner on
this difficult course. Teammate
Eric Hughes finished fourth
with a 17:09.
The Pirate boys won the boys
title with 41 points. Brooksville
Central was second with 61
points. Lecanto was fifth with
106 points and Citrus was sixth
with 146 points.
"It felt good," Beeler said.
"He (Maier) took the lead at the
one mile. I passed him at the
two mile and he surged past
me. It was a fast course today"
"I think I did pretty good,"
said Hughes. "It was quite tir-
ing. It was pretty nice because
the rain packed down the sug-
arsand. I almost fell coming
around a corner."
"There was a big improve-
ment," said Crystal River High
coach Tim Byrne of his run-
ner's efforts. "Derek Hannigan
stepped up today We had two
of our varsity out today Zack
Moore is injured right now.
Mike Rabold is on a trip to New
York. He is interviewing for a
position at a college up there.
Blair set a course record for
our school. Team-wise, we ran,


as well as we could have. The
kids did a good job."
Lecanto High's Jonathan
Junkins was sixth with a time
of 17:17.
"He has been sick," said
Lecanto coach Suzy Verhelst.
"They did fine. It's a hard
course. It's not as fast as the
McKethan Lake course."
The Citrus boys coach appre-
ciated some improvement by
his runners.
"The guys were strong
today," said Citrus High boys
coach Chris Moling. "We
learned how to pack up a little
bit better. We took today as a
training day towards district.
Brandon (Hardy) and Josh
(Johnson, 18:40, the top finish-
er Saturday) are duking it out
for number one. Devon Weston
is out with a hip. He dropped
out of the race. Our goal is to
do well at district and make it
to regional."

I Withlacoochee water woes


MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle
Lake Rousseau, located in northwest Citrus County, offers many the opportunity to fish, boat and view a wide array of wildlife. Despite public denials, many
people believe that officials in other parts of the state are plotting to tap into local water supplies to fuel their growth.


ord began
circulating
in July that
the St. Johns
River Water
Management
District
(SJRWMD) had named our
Withlacoochee River as one of its
potential "alternative water sup-
ply" sources after 2013, although
the Withlacoochee River lies
entirely within the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District (SWFWMD).
It was, and still remains, cause
for high alarm. Keep in the front of
your mind the fact that minimum
flows and levels (MFLs) will not be
fully set for the Withlacoochee
River until 2011 and you can
understand that the potential is
there for reckless drawdowns,
which would result in major losses
to all of the watershed areas on
the Withlacoochee and a negative
impact on the rest of our county's
springs and rivers.
People here are well aware of
the drought-related problems with
the Tsala Apopka chain of lakes
levels and recently learned of die-
offs in the lower river. Without the
MFL data evaluated and a
requirement to count the real use
per capita/per day draws by pri-
vate wells, there is no way to


determine the proper flow rate to
support ecosystem functions and
keep our river and its estuary
alive. Man is just one part of this
ecosystem; it all requires a meas-
urable amount of clean water. The
water management districts are
measuring the need now to set
those MFLs.
In addition to lack of levels for
the Withlacoochee River and its
lakes, none of the first magnitude
springs in our area has MFLs set
at this time. Weeki Wachee is due
this year, but not yet done.
Rainbow and Chassahowitzka
springs are projected for 2008, and
Kings Bay will not be until 2010.
In the October special legisla-
tive session, the Department of
Environmental Protection has
offered up its water programs for
budget cuts, meaning further
delays to proper assessments of
MFLs.
Whose idea was it?,
The issue was made an agenda
item for the Withlacoochee
Regional Water Supply Authority
(WRWSA) board meeting Sept. 19
in Brooksville. Board members
wanted to hear SWFWMD's
response to the SJRWMD plan
because development of this plan
had not included anyone from the
Please see WARS/Page 4C


I n northwest Citrus
County, an isolated
3,000-acre aquifer is
being polluted and
drained by a permitted
limerock mining opera-
tion.
The aquifer is the sole source of
potable water for 250 families.
More than 250 acres of this for-
merly pristine aquifer have already
been polluted.
Official records confirm that the
aquifer shows prohibited levels of
chlorides, sulfates or total dis-
solved solids.
Yet mining continues and the
footprint of pollution expands.
In meetings with DEP on March
23 and July 9, the issue was pre-
sented to the chief of mine recla-
mation, the director of the Division
of Water Resource Management
and others on their staff.
On Aug. 20, the deputy executive
director of the Southwest Florida
Water Management District and
others in that agency were similar-
ly informed.
Water district officials were
shown that their own records con-
firm that the elevation of the fresh
water column above sea level has
declined by 75 percent during the
last 20 years. The most recent
records, from 2006, show these lev-
els have often dropped below sea


level. This degree of drawdown
results in sea water encroachment
and upwelling of mineralized deep
water into the fresh water supplies.
It confirms that the district has, for
years, ignored the data they require
miners to collect and submit
Agency officials were also shown
data that confirms that blasting, the
rate of removal of the aquifer's
limestone core, and leaching from
limestone now stored on the sur-
face all contribute to the contami-
nation of this vital source of drink-
ing water.
Both state and local agencies are
aware that the miners have pene-
trated and drained the potentio-
metric high (the hill of water) that
formerly protected this aquifer.
However, when supporting data
from their own files are brought to
their attention showing that con-
tamination is a consequence of
expansion of the mine, no one
accepts responsibility or initiates
corrective action. Bureaucratic
inertia prevails.
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (FDEP)
has itself cited these mine opera-
tors for multiple violations of their
permit and for having withheld
information concerning water
quality when the permit applica-
tion was submitted.

Impact fees


stop the

little guy
Sometimes you are just
wrong.
County Commissioner
Joyce Valentino told the
Chronicle in a story published
last Sunday that impact fees
don't make any difference to
whether businesses open in
Citrus County.
She is wrong, and someone
needs to challenge this head-
in-the-sand attitude.
Impact fees, the special
taxes that our county commis-
sioners have levied against
any new homeowner or busi-
ness owner Who is even think-
ing of locating here, are hurt-
ing many small businesses in
our community.
When you consider the fact
that Citrus County is just one
step away. from an economic
free-fall, these tax-and-spend
Republicans on our county
commission must be chal-
lenged.
Impact fees have been
ramped up in recent years by a
county commission that has
adopted the adage, that
"growth must pay for itself."
Since all of us are concerned
about Citrus County becoming
overpopulated like other parts
of Florida, the impact fee
mantra plays well in some
neighborhoods. But in an eco-
nomic slump like we're experi-
encing now, impact fees have
become the final obstacle that
stops businesses from building
or expanding here. That
means new jobs can't be creat-
ed because local government
is standing in the way.
Commissioner Valentino
and her supporters on the
board are correct that impact
fees don't make a huge differ-
ence to companies like Wal-
Mart or Target when they look
at locating in Citrus County. If
the long-term business plan is
sound, they will be able to pay
off the impact fee and make a
profit And those big compa-
nies have the deep pockets to
pay the fees in advance and
then pay them with future
profits. They might stop big
businesses that are on the
edge, but most have the
resources if the business plan
makes sense.
But it's the small busi-
nessperson who is being ham-
mered by this unfair tax. You
see, the problem with this
impact fee tax is that it must be
levied equally against every
business in the community.

Volunteer task force to tackle teen driving issues


Editor's note: This is the second in
a ries of columns about the newly-
fo led Citrus County Teen Driving
Ta k Force. The third installment
wi appear in next Sunday's
Co mentary section and will focus
on parental involvement
n last week's column I wrote
about the fateful Sunday on
Memorial Day weekend and the
ev nts leading up to the deaths of my
da hter Melissa and her best friend
M y Paquin in a horrific car crash
on tate Road 200.
they were traveling home from an
Oc la shopping trip, the long, straight

M ssa had safely passed two cars on

Ro d 484 in Marion County and the
Wi lacoochee River bridge.
or reasons we will never know, she
los control shortly thereafter and her
ca served off the pavement onto the
gr sy, sloped right of way
In inctively, she tried to get back on
the pavement and overcorrected, los-
in control of her Honda Civic. As the


car spun around on the
two-lane highway, it veered
into the oncoming traffic.
On this Sunday after-
noon, there was not a lot of
traffic coming the other
way, but at that moment a
large Ford F-250 pickup
truck, towing a 28-foot boat
was in the wrong place at
the wrong time. A family of Tim
four was returning from a AF
day of boating on the Gulf HOI
coast and the driver had
no time to react Six-thou-
sand pounds of truck and boat
slammed into the rear of Melissa's car
and rolled right over the top of it
I was told it took about two hours to
get the truck off the car and our pre-
cious girls. Judging by the violence of
the collision, they were killed instant-
ly The family in the other vehicle suf-
fered from some injuries and were
taken to area hospitals. Thankfully,
none of their physical injuries were
life threatening, and I have been told
not permanent.
I can only imagine how hard it has


T


been for the other family
to be part of such a horri-
ble tragedy and while their
physical scars will heal,
emotionally it will proba-
bly take a lot longer.
This sunny, Sunday
afternoon turned into a
nightmare in a matter of
seconds. That is all it takes.
Hess We talked to a lot of peo-
rER ple that week and the out-
JRS pouring of support for our
family and Molly's was
amazing. It reminded us
once again of how wonderful our
community is.
I have lived in Inverness for 27
years, since moving from Long Island
in 1980. Upon joining the staff of the
then-twice-weekly Citrus County
Chronicle, I became aware of how
special our community was.
As a small county of 40,000 at the
time, people really seemed to care
about each other and the sense of
community was something I had
never experienced before.

TASK FORCE GOALS
The Citrus County Teen Driving Task Force has been established in order
to provide young drivers with the training and education necessary to
become safe, responsible drivers with the goal of reducing fatalities and
injuries in our community. The following subcommittees have been estab-
lished:
* Teen Driver Challenge Citrus County's Sheriff's Office, as a member of
the Florida Sheriff's Association, is one of seven in the state that has
developed and implemented the Teen Driver Challenge as a pilot project.
Classes are currently limited to 12 students and are scheduled monthly.
The goal is to be able to provide this training to every young driver in
Citrus County. For more information, visit www.sheriffcitrus.org.
* Scholarship awards and fundraising So far nearly $8,000 has been
raised with the goal of providing annual scholarships to students from the
Melissa Hess/Molly Paquin Scholarship Fund. The committee will deter-
mine award criteria and long-term goals for the fund. The group will also
help with any other related fundraising activities to further the goals of the
task force.
* Video production An educational video will be produced to be used in
the school system to tell the story of the tragic crash that killed Melissa
Hess and Molly Paquin, as well as deaths of other students in past years.
* Public awareness and education The committee will focus its efforts on
compiling statistical information and making sure the public is informed
about the dangers of teen driving and what can be done to change the
trend. The focus will also be on parental involvement in preparing young
drivers to safely navigate our roads.

but necessa ry


Citrus County schools may
look good on the outside,
even the oldest of them.

nity have generally been built to

the grounds are

itself on operating
on a pay-as-you go basis, incur-
ring no capital outlay debts.
They are also now warning us
that because of this practical
and cautious policy, our school
buildings are in critical condi-
tions and not up to standards.
This isn't a few coats of paint and
a new desk for a teacher, but
serious renovation needs that
will not go away and will not get
better on their own.
To understand the implica-
tions of these current insuffi-
ciencies, one must understand
the transformations that have
been forced upon our schools.
Classes are clustered and
instructed differently; the multi-
plicity and depth of subject mat-
ter is overwhelming; laborato-
ries must function in high speed
to keep course with discoveries;
and technological necessities
are mind-boggling.
And Inverness Primary School
has found it cannot add any
more electrical outlets!
The school district has recog-
nized that those unmet needs
must be addressed. They are
essential. Citrus County must
have schools that can reach into
the future, and that will take sig-
. nificant planning, a whole lot of
guts, and more than $180 million.
We didn't get into this situation
blindly, nor were our education-
al leaders negligent in the no-
bond funding policy that kept
taxpayers happy and avoided all
gloom and doom of out-of-con-
trol financing. The collision of
the economic environment of
the 21st century in conjunction
with the educational demands
on our district and the physical
necessities to reach those
demands was not supposed to
happen, and it certainly wasn't
supposed to happen this soon.

iout today's example, Forest
editorial Ridge Elementary
School, which was
built in 2000, cost $11 million.
Central Ridge Elementary, cur-
rently under construction, is
estimated to cost $24 million.
So, our school board needs to
invest more money in schools.
The big questions are, of course:
how much and where does it
come from? Currently being dis-
cussed is the utilization of a
Certificate of Participation,
which is a funding mechanism to
borrow money against 1 mill of
the 2 mills that is now levied for
capital outlay. It is a form of
bonding that requires a very spe-
cific plan for every dollar and
demands a very judicious and
fiscally responsible structure.
This program does not change
the tax burden on Citrus County
residents.
Other counties that have
exhausted themselves out of
other options have had to resort
to increases in sales tax or gas
tax to meet the growth needs in
their districts. This requires
voter approval.
To allow our schools to oper-
ate in substandard conditions
that do not adapt to the changes
in today's necessary school func-
tions is irresponsible. To post-
pone renovations and not plan
for the future needs of our dis-
trict will not make the problem
go away. And to not examine
every possible funding mecha-
nism available with the most
absolute diligence for the pres-
ent as well as the future well-
being of this community is not an
option.
The needs are not going to dis-
appear. Eventually, the school
board is going to have to make a
decision and the longer that
decision is put off, no matter
how difficult, the more costly it
will be.

A trio of campaign-trail flops


BY DOUGLAS COHN AND
ELEANOR CLIFT
The three biggest flops on the
campaign trail are former Sen.
Fred Thompson, R-Tenn., Sen.
Barack Obama, D-Ill., and Sen. John
McCain, R-Ariz. Each of them entered
the race with the expectation voters
would coalesce around them, and each
failed to live up to the initial fanfare.
Of the three, Obama has the best
chance to re-ignite the excitement that
his candidacy seemed to promise. He
remains competitive in Iowa, the first
contest of the primary season, and he
has raised enough money to stay in the
race beyond Iowa if he finishes strong
enough there.
Obama has 31 field offices in Iowa,
and he is counting on grassroots organ-
ization to deliver for him. He is
appealing to young people in a state
where the participating caucus voters
tend to be older. He is basing his can-
didacy on the theory that voters want a
radically different politics, and that he
is the best able to change the country
overnight simply because of who he is,
a post-partisan, multi-cultural phe-
nomenon. That is a fine introductory
message, but he hasn't yet taken it to
the next level.
If Obama wants to catch frontrunner
Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y, he must
show more to the voters. Ask the aver-
age people paying intermittent atten-
tion to the presidential race to name
the top positions Obama has taken,


*'.~b*
S

S-Other VOICES


they would probably tell you he is
against the Iraq war, he favors nation-
al health insurance, and he wants to
lessen the grip of lobbyists and special
interests in Washington. That is all
well and good, but he hasn't put
enough meat on the bones to grab the
voters' imagination. To be fair, he is
right when he says the distinctions are
minor between his health care propos-
al and the ones offered by rivals
Hillary Clinton and former Sen. John
Edwards, D-N.C., and that the key is
which among them can muster the
bipartisan support on Capitol Hill to
pass legislation.
Here is where Obama has not
offered convincing evidence beyond
his appealing persona that he is the
candidate best able to work the levers
of power in Washington. The voters
seem to be responding to Clinton's
claim that she understands the issues
and the politics from the perspective
of the White House and the Congress,
and she knows how to win. Obama
comes across as a little too dewy-eyed
about bringing people together in
Washington. A campaign shakeup, a
few bold initiatives, a sharper contrast
with Clinton that brings him into focus
for the voters could change the politi-
cal landscape, but time is running out
On the Republican side, Thompson
seems to lack confidence. He comes
across like a man who has been out of


the political rough-and-tumble for a
dozen years, and he is rusty. Voters
accustomed to his persona as the
tough-talking district attorney on "Law
and Order" are disappointed when he
comes across as just another guy on
the crowded stage of GOP contenders.
Good thing he knew the name of
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen
Harper when asked in last week's
debate in Michigan. If he hadn't, he
might have been finished before he got
out of the gate. As it is, his grasp of
facts on the campaign trail is shaky.
As for McCain, the third-quarter
fundraising numbers show he is just
about broke, and he started the race as
the presumptive nominee for 'the
Republicans. He burned through his
money trying to be something he isn't,
pandering to the right wing of the
party. He thought he was playing smart
politics; instead, he lost the core of his
candidacy, his straight talk. In politics,
people have a way of re-inveriting
themselves so it is risky to write any-
body off before the first votes have
been cast Still, it is fair to say the vot-
ers expected -more than they got from
this trio of highly touted contenders.

LETTERS to the


Cars, pools, guns
Recently, an 18-month-old child
drowned in a backyard swimming
pool in Manatee County, a frequent
occurrence in America.
Then on Oct. 14, Tim Hess wrote an
article about the many teenagers
killed in vehicle crashes 28,000
since 2003, one every 64.5 minutes, an
injury every 55 seconds.
In those tragedies nobody blames
the swimming pool or the car. But
there's an outcry if a gun is involved,
blaming the gun and calling for
stricter laws or outright banning. It's
the same for crimes, with some saying
guns are necessary tools for crime or
even the cause of crime. They relate
crime to the availability of guns.
However, there are about 250 mil-
lion guns in America, but only 16,400
murders occurred in 2005, not all gun
related.
For Florida crime, FDLE statistics
show the actual involvement of guns
in violent crimes. In 2005, guns were
involved in 22 percent of Florida's
violent crimes, but most (98,000) did
not involve guns. Guns were used
more for murder, but only 18 percent
of the time for aggravated assault, 40
percent for robbery, 1 percent for
manslaughter and 1.5 percent for
forcible rape. Guns were used only 3
percent of the time in more than a
million violent and non-violent
crimes.
Can gun opponents explain the
emphasis upon gun violence com-
pared to the disregard of the carnage
on our roads? Or the acceptance of
private swimming pools, death mag-
nets for children, while decrying guns
and wishing to ban them? According
to the CDC, 640 children from birth to
9 years died by accidental drowning in
2003, while only 20 were killed in acci-
dental shootings. Those who desire
more gun controls should join the peo-
ple who want more effort, time and
resources devoted to fighting the real

Airport expenses
Editor's note: The following letter
was sent to county commissioners and
published at the writer's request:
I am writing on behalf of the resi-
dents of Crystal Paradise Estates,
Anthony Tomasello and Carl Daniels
who have shared great interest for a
long time opposing any extension to
the Crystal River Airport With them
out of our picture due to bad health
and a stroke, we are asking you in
good faith to help us oppose the
Crystal River Airport Master Plan due
to the funds needed to finance these
projects, for the safety our community
and to save our wetlands.
On Sept. 13, at the AAB meeting, Mr.
Wylupek talked about the box hangars
at the Crystal River Airport, saying a
void (sinkhole) was found under the
site and it took 662 yards of concrete
to repair the area. That is about $65
to $75 a yard and totaling between
$43,000 and $50,000, depending on the


Editor
substance used. Again, our tax money
is being wasted for only a handful of
people who use the airport.
I understand that Citrus County
pays $100,000-plus a year to mow the
grass. How can the Citrus County
commissioners justify these expenses
for the benefit of a few people?
Now the commissioners are talking
about buying the properties of Dairy
Queen and the building north of ,
Dairy Queen on U.S. 19 to expand the
north and south grassy runway. Have
you considered the safety of the citi-
zens who travel U.S. 19 and what it is
going to cost you and me and all of
the tax-paying citizens of Citrus
County just for the benefit of a few?
Barbara Thomas, President
Crystal Paradise Estates

Lowering rate
Editor's note: The following letter
to Ben Bernanke, chairman of the
Federal Reserve, is published at the
writer's request
I can't believe that the Federal
Reserve lowered the already low
interest rate in view of the double-
digit rate of inflation. Record high
deficits ($9 trillion), record high trade
deficits, record high oil prices ($81 a
barrel) and a record low value of the
dollar fuel more inflation.
The only thing that lower interest
rates do is to play into the hands of
quick-buck artists and speculators
who do not care about this country.
I refer to Wall Street that is near
record highs. Wall Street will be back
for more rate cuts. You will never sat-
isfy the greed of the money people.
What interest rates cuts do is hurt
the savers and retirees of this country,
the real backbone of the country.
Trying to stop a problem created by
too much credit by encouraging more
credit spending makes no sense at all.

A common bond between 'little'brothers and sisters


he first words which
came to mind as I con-
templated this column
_was, "I feel a kindred spirit
with Kaylee."
I do of course I do she's
grandchild number 3. I also
feel a kindred spirit with num-
bers 1, 2,4,5,6 and 7. But when
it comes to the gist of today's
material, there's a special
camaraderie between Miss
Kaylee and me.
i Kaylee Brannen is small of
-stature, in fact, by most stan-
dards, she's tiny I can identify
with that
In grade school, I was the lit-
tle guy who always had to

sional who had to

boy's section of

stores in order to
find something to
fit.
Kaylee has an Fred B
older sister, Ariana, A SLI
who is 10 but looks LI
14. Kaylee is 8 and
looks 5. I can identi-
fy with that, too.
My older good brother
William appeared to be an
adult by the time he was 14, but
I could still pass for 12 when I

was 20.
Once, after I was
well into my 20s, I
entered a bank with
4 a team of bank
. examiners. The
bank's president
A greeted me with a
challenge, "What
are YOU 'doing
rannen here? Has the state
DE OF started :letting
FE teenagers examine
banks?"
I smiled, flashed
my ID and responded, "I'm
older than I look" i
He then shot back, "Who's
the examiner in charge?'
I respectfully, but firmly


replied, "I am."
Something which really
pops Kaylee's cork is when
eating at a restaurant hav-
ing her drink served in a plas-
tic cup complete with a spill-
proof cap. In such instances,
my pint-sized soul mate
respectfully, but firmly advis-
es, "I'm not a baby. I'd like to
have my drink in a glass,
please."
Speaking of restaurants,
grandparents do things par-
ents don't, things such as cater-
ing to the grandchildren's
desire to order from an adult
menu. After all, just how much
macaroni and cheese or how
many chicken fingers can kids


eat?
On a recent Saturday, Cheryl
and I, along with son Fred's
family, had lunch at a restau-
rant which specializes in
Italian food. After clearing it
with their parents, I pointed to
the adult menu and nodded to
the children, saying without
words, "No holds barred, order
whatever you want."
Kaylee was seated next to
me. Her eyes stopped on the
"Tour of Italy", a combination
platter with large servings of
lasagna, linguine and chicken
Parmesan. It looked good to
me also.
She pointed out the item on
the menu and looked up at me.


I nodded my approval, then,
knowing such a meal would be
too much for either of us alone,
I whispered, "Would you like
to share?"
She gleefully agreed. The
order was split in the kitchen;
the plated presentation was
perfect and it was delicious.
Kaylee and I enjoyed sharing a
meal, but what's more, we will
continue to share a common
' bond only a "little" sister and a
"little" brother can fully
appreciate.

This is in response
:to the Sound Off on CALL
Oct. 5 called "Hourly 5
rate." This General 563
Motors worker is
claiming that they
'didn't make $70 an hour. In
fact they didn't bring home
$70 an hour, but it cost the
company for this employee
'$70 an hour by the time they
,gave him all his benefits.
Therefore, it does mean that
indirectly he was making $70
an hour. So how he can say
this is wrong, it is not wrong
because when someone hires
someone, an individual, they
have to figure what all their
'benefits, including plus their
hourly rate is costing them to
hire that person. It's not
enough just to say, well, it's
only costing them $10 an hour
if that's what you're making.
That's not so. There are taxes
that they have to pay for you,


K (


and then if you have hospital-
ization or any other kind of
benefits, they have to pay that
portion that they do to cover
their employees. So all
that has to be figured
in the cost of hiring
that individual. So,
therefore, that GM
worker was getting
$70 an hour.

Wyoming is just perfect techni-
cally. The elements are all in
perfect balance. Not much of a
place to go to, it doesn't look


like not that attractive. But
as far as the photography skill,
it's just great. Good job.
Speaking for seniors
This is to the Sound Off talk-
ing about AARP: They don't
speak for me. They have noth-
ing to offer me. They don't do
you any good. All they do is,
they're political and they're
backing Nancy Pelosi andshe's
a nut job. They do not speak
for me. You should really ihves-
tigate all the political activity
that they do. They're just for a
small group of seniors. i.
Firefighters' pay
In Sunday, Oct. 7's Chronicle
it says that Commissioner
Thrumston says that if Citrus
County needs to hire 40 more
firefighters, it will cost $5 mil-
lion. So if you divide $5 million
by 40, that's $125,000 per fire-
fighter. Does that mean that's
how much they would get in one
year? Not that they're not worth
it, but who's getting paid what
they're worth in Citrus County?
Lawyers, maybe. Doctors,
maybe. But that sounds like a
lot of money, $125,000 a year
for firefighters.
Editor's note: The $5 million
includes more than just the cost of
salaries; it also includes other ;
expenses related to new hires, such
as the cost of new equipment.


LETTERS to the


Bad adjustment
In response to B.
Dallenger's "Healthy
Children" letter of Oct. 12.
Dallenger wants President
Bush impeached for vetoing
the "child" health care pro-
gram that is actually called
SCHIP and is an program that
already exists. It provides
health insurance for poor chil-
dren in the United States.
The State Children's Health
Insurance Program (SCHIP),
created by the Balanced
Budget Act of 1997, enacted
Title XXI of the Social
Security Act and allocated
about $20 billion during 10
years to help states insure
more children. The law
authorizes states to provide
health care coverage to "tar-
geted low-income children"
who are not eligible for
Medicaid and who are unin-
sured. States receive an
enhanced federal match
(greater than the state's
Medicaid match) and have
three years to expend each
year's allotment The
Democrat proposal was to
rewrite the bill to include
"children" up to and including


the age of 21.
The problems go deeper.
Some states have used the
program to enroll illegal
aliens, higher-income families
and those already covered by
private insurance. As with
adult enrollment, this bill
would permit all three.
Instead of requiring proof of
citizenship to sign up for bene-
fits, the bill would let states
merely ask for a Social
Security number a process
that the Social Security
Administration has warned
would not verify legal status.
Special exemptions also
would allow families with
incomes up to $83,000 per year
to receive subsidies. As a
result, the Congressional
Budget Office projected that
one out of three new enrollees
in the program would drop his
or her private insurance to
receive government benefits.
It was a stealthy way to
incrementally start the whole
ball rolling on socialized med-
icine. No one really knows
what the ultimate cost would
be if the bill had been made
law. I would ask if Dallenger
wants socialized medicine, but
not to worry about this law as

No long distance
I've had my phone here in
Homosassa since 1989 and
always was able to have long
distance calling available to me.
Somehow or other since
Sprint went to Embarq, all I
get on my phone is "Your long
distance calling has temporar-
ily discontinued."
I've tried for two hours
today calling numbers to
Embarq and Sprint and can't
get through to any of them!
There is no local address in
the telephone book to call
their offices to complain.
Kindly help! I'm going to try
and stop the Embarq tele-
phone vans I see running
around Homosassa and ask
the driver about linking me up
to long distance. At least, he'll
tell somebody in the company
about my situation.
Please help me!
Thank you.

TASK FORCE
Continued from Page 1C

We took care of each other.
I had never seen so many vol-
unteer groups helping solve
problems and was impressed
by the spirit of volunteerism in
Citrus County and partner-
ships with government agen-
cies.
It didn't take very long to get
involved, and even though our
,county's population has
swelled to more than 140,000
residents, we have yet to lose
the altruistic spirit that makes
Citrus special.
Problems can be solved and
we can make a difference.
We have another problem
that needs to be solved. The
mortality rate of teen drivers is
a national issue and we are not
immune.
Citrus is known for a lot of
things its manatee sanctuar-
ies, coastal fisheries, beautiful
spring-fed rivers and a diverse
ecosystem from the lakes to the
gulf. We are pretty good at solv-
ing problems on the local level
and I want us to be known for
more:
- U A community that sets the
standard and provides for the
education and training of
young drivers.
M A community that has
decided it wants to stop losing
its young people on the road.
- U A community where safe
driving is "cool" for teenagers
and driving under the influ-
ence or street-racing is "not


cool."
My wife and I and Mary Jo
Fallinske (Molly's mom) talked
with Pat Deutschman a lot in
the weeks following the acci-
dent. The more we talked
about the teen driving death
rate in our community and the
more research we did, the
more we realized that this was
a problem that needed to be
addressed.
Deutschman, an energetic
member of the county school
board, was our children's
Sunday school teacher and has
been a friend for many years.
Within two weeks of the girls'
deaths we had already decided
to put together a group of peo-
ple who have the ability and
influence to help us stop the
trend of teen deaths on a local
level.
The Citrus County Teen
Driving Task Force was formed
and we have had several meet-
ings to talk about the many
issues that have an impact on
the No. 1 killer of teenagers in
our country.
We have concluded that too
little is done to prepare our
children for survival on the
road. Education and training of
teenagers, as well as parents,
must improve in order to solve
this problem.
As parents, we can teach our
children the basics of driving
- how to handle a vehicle, the
rules of the road, etc. But we
are not professional driving
instructors. The more I think
about the fact that we let our
kids do the most dangerous
thing they can do without pro-


fessional instruction, the more
insane it seems.
When Lori and I taught our
two children to drive, we
emphasized defensive driving.
I don't know how many times I
told my son and daughter to
look at each vehicle in their
vicinity as having the potential
to kill them. Never trust any-
one to do the right thing.
We don't do enough to teach
them how to respond when:
something bad happens.
Anyone who navigates our
highways on a regular basis
witnesses drivers doing stupid
things constantly. It's very dan-
gerous out there.
Part of the problem is that
until recently, there was noth-
ing available to fill that void. As
I also mentioned last week,
when Melissa and Molly died,
Sheriff Jeff Dawsy and Sgt. Joe
Palminteri were getting ready
to launch the Teen Driver
Challenge. It's a pilot program
that the sheriff's office helped
develop with six. other coun-
ties, as members of the Florida
Sheriff's Association.
The program is at the center
of our task force's efforts. It is
being offered monthly and
instructors can handle about
12 students. There are approxi-
mately 1,500 students who
reach driving age in our county
each year. Schools
Superintendent Sandra "Sam"
Himmel is working with Dawsy
and Palminteri on figuring out
how this course can be offered
to all students. As with any pro-
gram, it will take money and
resources. The goal is to be set


up to handle such a large num-
ber of students beginning with
the next school year. There's a
lot that needs to be done to get
to that point, but if as a com-
munity we determine this is
something that must be accom-
plished, it will happen.
Losing control of your vehi-
cle and overcorrecting is the
top cause in teen driver fatali-
ties. That's how Melissa and
Molly died. How to recover
when that happens is one of
the skills taught (and experi-
enced on the driving range) at
the sheriff's office's course. I
am not sure how many adults
would do the right thing if they
found themselves in this situa-
tion. I am not sure if I would
respond correctly.
Our task force will have a
,multifaceted approach to solv-
ing this problem. Raising the
level of awareness is super-
important Parents and teens
peed to understand just how
dangerous driving is.
And in a lot of respects, it's
more dangerous than ever
before. While the level of aware-
ness and enforcement of alco-
hol-impaired drivers has
improved, driver distraction has
become a huge issue and is
responsible for an increasing
number of auto fatalities. Next
week's column will focus more
on that subject, existing laws
and what parents can do to cre-
ate safer drivers of their chil-
dren.
While the task force will do
what it can to raise the level of
awareness of students, a
change in mind set must begin

ents who are dedicated to implementing several strategies

have a cross-section of commu-

point and the group will evolve
as we find and implement solu-

is to save lives.


A list of our initial objectives
also accompanies this column.
But unless we get buy-in from
students and parents our
efforts will fail and more of our

Presidential politics underwhelming for students


I have just returned from a
Former Members of
Congress' Congress to
Campus program at Central
,Michigan University in Mount
Pleasant, Michigan. The school
has 20,000 students on campus
and another 8,000 scattered
around the country. The
University was one of the first
to become involved with the
military and has "campuses"
on some bases.
It was a refreshing, interest-
ing and inspiring trip. There
are times in the political world
when you become so fixated on
the political side that you lose
track of what is really impor-
Jant Look at the time being
wasted these days on the spat
between Rush Limbaugh and
Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.)
over who said what to whom
and what did they mean.
This country has incredible


problems that must
be addressed, such as
Social Security,
Medicare, and
Medicaid. These
three items in 30 or 40
years could take up
over 80 percent of our
budget, which is an
unacceptable result I
wish members of
Congress would exert
the same amount of
energy and passion
on those issues as


Lou Frey
OTHER
VOICES


seems to be exerted on "fringe"
issues.
The students at Central were
well taught and were interest-
ed in a broad spectrum of
issues. The classes were like
sitting down at a large family
dinner and discussing the
problems facing all of us, with a
wide range of views presented.
The students were polite,


smart, and fortu-
nately had a sense
of humor. I was so
impressed with the
political science
department and
the students that
we were talking
about having a
joint program in
the future with The
Frey Institute.
One of the ques-
tions that came up
time and time


again was the presidential elec-
tion. Most of the students felt
that Hillary Clinton (D-NY)
would be the Democratic nomi-
nee, but not near as many
thought she would be president
Reasons were the same as you
have read in the paper: a lot of
people dislike her and they
(Democrats) were not going to
vote for her


I was surprised there wasn't
more enthusiasm for Barack
Obama (D-Ill.). Some of the stu-
dents thought he was running
for 2012. We discussed the ques-
tion of Obama's chance for vice
president I told the students it
w6uld be difficult to have him
on the ticket with Hillary, and
from Obama's standpoint it
might be best if he wasn't on the
ticket. If you look at his
prospects, you could argue the
best thing for Obama would be
for Hillary to get the nomina-
tion, for him not to be on the
ticket, help Hillary like Reagan
helped Ford (not much), and for
Hillary to lose.
At that point Obama would be
in the driver's seat for the 2012
nomination. I think Clinton has
to look to the Sunbelt for some-
body like Bill Richardson (D-
NM), or the Midwest for a mod-
erate like Sen. Evan Bayh (D-


Ind.). When the Republican
Party was discussed, there did-
n't seem to be any clear winner
or much enthusiasm. I thought
Romney (R-Mass.) would be the
clear choice, but it became evi-
dent no one knew who his
father was and the alleged
advantage was non-existent.
Some Republicans said they
were waiting to see who could
beat Hillary and when they fig-
ured that out, that would be
their choice.
Michigan is having the same
problem with the national par-
ties as Florida over moving up
its primary. Some of the candi-
dates in Michigan have noti-
fied the State that they want
their names taken off the bal-
lot This has not made many of
the people we talked to in
Michigan, regardless of party,
very happy. Michigan is a key
state in the presidential elec-


tion, and is suffering economic
problems with a $1.7 billion
budget deficit It is a relatively
safe state for whoever gets the
Democratic nomination.
The faculty at Central is heav-
ily Democratic, but fair in its
presentation of issues. The stu-
dents seem to be split, with
more Republicans than normal.
Finally, I was joined in the
visit by Congressman Jim Lloyd
(D-CA). Jim is a true American
hero a fighter pilot in the
Pacific at the end of WWII. He
is a longtime and good friend.
Being with him made the trip
extra special.

COMMENTARY


C C FL C CE








4C ~~~~~ 10111 H~~~~~~ 2120 O M N A YCmsCU F)CRNCE


The smoking gun behind the funding of SCHIP


resident Bush recently
vetoed the new State
Children's Health
Insurance Program (SCHIP)
because it costs too much and
it expanded coverage to fami-
lies earning up to three times
the poverty-level income.
Many, including the non-par-
tisan Congressional Budget
Office, predicted that the pro-
gram would cause as many as
40 percent of families in the
targeted group to give up pri-
vate insurance in favor of low-
cost SCHIP and become
dependent on the government.
SCHIP funding in the con-
gressional bill comes from a
61-cents-per-pack new tax on
cigarettes. Using static
accounting methods (like
Citrus County did with the
gasoline tax increase),
Congress multiplied current


packs smoked times
61 cents and came
up with a number -
for funding.
But common
sense (notably
absent in Congress)
tells us that fewer
packs will be pur-
chased at the high-
er price and that Dr. Will
the funding will fall OTI
short. This will have VIE
an effect on state
revenues. For
instance, Florida is predicted
to lose $21 million annually in
cigarette taxes as sales of ciga-
rettes fall off. That loss repre-
sents a large unplanned state
cost for SCHIP, and it is real.
Gov. Charlie Crist, never one
to be deterred by economic
realities, is a strong SCHIP
supporter.

IH
El


Who smokes ciga-
rettes, anyway?
Statistics show that
the less money a
person earns, the
more he is likely to
be a smoker. So this
new tobacco tax
will fall upon the
shoulders of the
m Dixon very population
IER group SCHIP is
WS intended to help.
Did Congress do
that on purpose?
But it gets worse.
The SCHIP bill is purported
to cost $35 billion over five
years. But using mathematics
only a congressman could
believe, the cost is slated to
drop from about $8 billion in
the fourth year to about $3 bil-
lion in the fifth. That is not
remotely possible!


In reality, this is an expand-
ed entitlement program which,
coupled with a new tax, will
not support itself and which
will require ever-increasing
support from general tax rev-
enues. Congress seems oblivi-
ous to the fact that there are
trillions of dollars in unfunded
IOUs in the Social Security
and Medicare trust funds.
Why not take care of those
senior obligations before
adding billions to another enti-
tlement program? Ah, yes, I
forgot: It's all about buying
votes and not so much about
the children! It gives a won-
derful political advantage to
those supporting SCHIP to be
able to accuse the opposition
of denying health care to chil-
dren.
SCHIP pays doctors so little
that most cannot afford to see


many of these patients and still
pay their office expenses. It
will be difficult for SCHIP ben-
eficiaries to be seen in the
office. Like Medicaid, it is
another "government credit
card" accepted at all emer-
gency facilities for virtually any
medical problem, no matter
how trivial. Ask any ER doctor
about the daily abuses of
Medicaid and SCHIP for prob-
lems best managed with some
Tylenol and a decongestant
Kids are absolute survivors!
Their resistance to infections
and powers of recovery far
exceed those of adults. Their
major health problems are
birth defects, usually obvious
by the first year, a few rare can-
cers that make their appear-
ance between ages 7 and 11
and injuries. To remain
healthy, all children really


need is loving parents of aver-
age intelligence and a safe
environment. Children's
health insurance should cover
major illnesses and injuries,
not the routine check-ups,
colds and cuts our parents
handled when we were kids.
As for loving parents and a
safe environment, Congress
can't legislate that, and SCHIP'
is not the answer, either.

Continued from Page 1C

WRWSA. Many Homosassa River Alliance
members traveled to Brooksville to attend,
joining a large number of conservation activists
in packing the Hernando County boardroom.
What we heard from SWFWMD was not good.
Making all water 'local'
Citrus County and the WRWSA board seem
determined to never share their water with
overbuilt water management districts, and our
state representatives affirmed that position -
but that may not matter.
We learned that the Department of
Environmental Protection and its sister agen-
cies, the water management districts, have
established a new way to more easily target
each other's resources. The establishment of
"regions" overlapping one or more districts is
achieving these means.
SWFWMD Executive Director David Moore
did not make the overlap method clear at the
Brooksville meeting. So, when Mr. Moore
repeatedly said that regional transfers are a
good idea, the implication was he meant
"regions within our district." But he did not
mean that. Some of SJRWMD's counties and
some of SWFWMD's are in a newly created
region known as the Central Florida
Coordination Area. So, suddenly, we learned
that the districts are bedding down together to
make all water local.
They can do this. The Florida Supreme Court
more than a decade ago affirmed the state has
control over water distribution through the
Department of Environmental Protection. Our
state Legislature merely requires agreement
between districts.
Amounts based on guesses
Here is another good cause for continued
alarm. In the SWFWMD Regional Water Supply
Plan issued on Dec. 1, 2006, on Page XV~ under
Executive Summary, it states: "The District did
not prepare a (Regional Water Supply Plan) for
counties in the Northern Planning Area ...
based on the general lack of existing regional
impacts to water resources."
So, there is currently no "plan" for our area
because they do not know how current use is
impacting the area. Note the term "existing"
omits counting the already approved develop-
ments not yet built. But St Johns River district
does have a plan and it names our resource.
The same section notes, however, that the
district is involved in planning (regional) activ-
ities with WRWSA, Marion County and the St.
Johns River district. Without MFL knowledge,
that's insultingly premature to be planning
with other districts.
We all say no
Board members were clearly angry about the
proposal and fully opposed to it. Going further,
Chairman Joyce Valentino said that there
should be a concurrency requirement between
development and available water and that
SWFWMD should stop approving development
permits until minimum flows and levels are set
for all rivers and groundwater in the SWFWMD
area. Hernando County commissioners backed
her remarks.
Citrus County Commissioner Gary Bartell
urged SWFWMD's David Moore to look into
creating treated wastewater in concert with
Progress Energy's power plant. WRWSA's exec-
utive director, Jack Sullivan, pointed out that
WRWSA had been left out of the loop in plan-
ning this proposal until they were asked in late


Schultz warned that any
planning for inter-district
transfers would get the
legislature involved and,
because it would impact the
estuaries in the Gulf, it
would also become a
national issue. "No one is
safe," he said, "when the
government gets involved."
He urged the plan
be dropped.

July to host a meeting to discuss it WRWSA's
board voted in opposition to hosting such a
meeting.
State Sen. Charlie Dean made his position
clear, declaring the proposal "irresponsible."
Dean said that St Johns district problems were
clearly due to overbuilding and meeting its
water needs should not be at another district's
expense. State Rep. Ron Schultz concurred,
noting that developments have been "growing
like mushrooms" on the Central Ridge of
Florida and they are being subsidized by the
less-populated counties. Schultz warned that
any planning for inter-district transfers would
get the Legislature involved and, because it
would impact the estuaries in the gulf, it would
also become a national issue. "No one is safe,"
he said, "when the government gets involved."
He urged the plan be dropped.
What comes next?
Clearly, everyone involved in water issues
has to keep informed. And we need action. We
need to lobby for legal assurance that all water
drawdowns particularly private, unmetered
well usage in every district be measured and
counted along with the metered amount now
approved for drawdown from each aquifer. For
the districts to continue to ignore those num-
bers is sheer folly
We have to make sure that the latest science
is applied to ensure optimum health levels for
our springs and rivers and groundwater. We
must make it clear that environmental needs
are requirements, not just "concerns."
We need to insist that at least Citrus County
votes for concurrency between growth permits
and water availability We need to press our
elected politicians to demand concurrency in
all of the water management districts as well.
We must voice our positions at meetings and in
writing. We need to keep articles in the newspa-
per to assure citizens are informed. Directors of
the Homosassa River Alliance have been active
in this regard for years and are now partnering
closely with other environmental groups to speak
with a loud and consistent voice. The goal is sus-
taining water for all biospheres, including
human life. We can do that if we work together.

That's why the Chronicle has
been publishing stories lately
about your friends and neigh-
bors who are being stopped
from doing simple things. A
pizza shop owner wants to
open up in an existing building
and he is charged with a spe-
cial $35,000 tax. Another
restaurant owner wants to turn
an empty convenience store
into a new location, and he's
told it will cost him a $70,000
tax. These aren't even new
buildings, they're just trying to
open a business in an existing


shopping center.
When impact fees were
being proposed, all the talk was
about new construction. But
now it turns out that any time a
business changes and the
use of an existing building
changes the county wants to
get its sticky fingers on more
tax dollars. On the residential
side, only new homes pay
impact fees. But in the busi-
ness community, anyone who
wants to open a business ends
up paying.
How does that make sense?
And it's not just businesses
that are being hit with these
impact fees. Volunteers at a
VFW hall want to add square
footage for a meeting room,


and they have to come up with
a $40,000 tax.
Commissioner Vicki Phillips
came to the defense of
Commissioner Valentino and
said the real problems faced by
business are higher insurance
rates and tougher state build-
ing standards. While those are
contributors to the problem,
they are not something that can
be controlled by our local elect-
ed officials. The impact fee tax
was created totally at the whim
of the five members of our
county commission.
The construction and real
estate industries have come to
a screeching halt in Citrus
County When you consider that
an estimated 40 percent of the


workforce in our community is
tied to those industries (includ-
ing businesses like banking,
title companies and real estate
on top of all of the actual con-
struction companies), there are
thousands of people who are
suddenly out of work.
Impact fees are a local barri-
er put in the way of people try-
ing to earn a living.
Most of the people who live
in Citrus County are senior cit-
izens and no longer in the
workforce. But there are still
tens of thousands of working
people who need to earn a liv-
ing and raise their children.
County commissioners will tell
you they support the little guy,
but their actions indicate oth-


erwise.
At least County
Commissioner Dennis Damato
is not happy about the trend.
Damato has announced a pro-
posal to back off impact fees
and stop this insane assault on
people who are trying to earn a
living. I have to admit that it's
hard to get overly concerned
about Wal-Mart paying a big
impact fee, but it's that same
law that is hurting small busi-
ness in Citrus County.
Our commissioners have
adopted the highest gas tax in
Florida. They've had to be
forced into lowering the prop-
erty tax or face a taxpayer
revolt Spending has increased
by a double-digit margin every


year for the past five years, and
now we have some of the high-
est impact fees in the state of
Florida.
Citrus County used to be one
of the least expensive places in
the entire state to live. There
used to be a county commis-
sion that understood that many
of our retirees and working
people couldn't afford a gov-
ernment that just keeps spend-
ing more money and keeps
dreaming up new taxes.
Times have changed.

The turnpike triangle

JANET MASAOY by C county
Special t the Chronicle It should be understoodby Citrus County residents


I recently addressed our Citrus
County Board of County
Commissioners (BOCC) regarding
three significant facts about the
proposed Suncoast Parkway 2
(SP2). Though I requested a response,
three commissioners stated their positions
on the tollway, two said nothing, and I have
to date had no response to my comments.
Because some people are new to Citrus
County, they may not realize that this cur-
rent project by the Florida Department of
Transportation/Turnpike Enterprise
(FDOT/FTE) to construct SP2 is their third
attempt to do so..
The first was a Project Development
and Environment (PD&E) study, which
began in 1994 and was completed in
February, 1998. The road had been studied
to state standards, and there was not suffi-
cient funding to build it
Also, it should be understood by Citrus
County residents that the vote of the five
county commissioners will make the final
decision as to whether the SP2 will be built
The triangle begins Part I
A second PD&E study began when
Kevin Thibault, currently assistant secre-
tary for engineering and operations for
the FDOT, came to address the BOCC at
the kick-off meeting for that study Feb. 12,
2002. I have a CD which was acquired from
FDOT by means of a Freedom of
Information Act request It has a power-
point presentation of Kevin Thibault (if
not his voice, his words) which was deliv-
ered that day. These following words are
quoted from what he said: "The involve-
ment of local community is an important
part of these activities."
He goes on later, "The other reason for
conducting a new study is to allow for
changes in land use that have occurred
since the previous study was completed.
Modifications to the location and concep-
tual design of the parkway may be


required as a result of these changes and
the recent acquisition of preservation
land in the project study area."
Those words refer to the first PD&E
study referencing the route now under
study! (The "preservation land" undoubt-
edly refers to the Lecanto Sandhills and
the Annutteliga Hammock.)
This second study was being carried out
to federal guidelines, and FDOT was being
told that all alternative alignments must
continue to be studied. Also there was a
successful lawsuit filed against FDOT by
two Citrus County landowners on the
grounds of violation of the Sunshine Law.
Though FTE will not say that was the rea-
son, the second study did not resume.
The triangle continues Part II
The third attempt by FTE to construct
the SP2 started when Christopher Warren,
executive director and chief operating
officer of FTE, came to speak to the BOCC
Sept 26, 2006. He was requesting the sup-
port of the Board for Turnpike's
"Reevaluation" of the first PD&E, which
had been completed in February 1998. Did
the board not realize that the "first" study
had been completed eight years before, or
that Kevin Thibault had cited the reasons
that study should not have been used
when he spoke to the BOCC Sept 12,2002?
Though Mr. Warren had no current facts
of figures about the 1998 project that would
be required to satisfy three state statutes in
order for the tollroad to be constructed, he
wanted the BOCC "support" so the
Turnpike Enterprise could proceed with
the project He did not need support at that
stage in the proposed study in order for the
turnpike to come into Citrus County. That


approval or denial by the BOCC is
given when the study is "completed."
Please make note that there is not one
mention referring to "public information"
in Mr. Warren's presentation.
Triangle Part III
Chapter 13 of the Efficient
Transportation Decision Making (ETDM)
Process, which was written Jan. 31,2007, is
titled "Re-evaluations." This is the process
that FTE is using currently regarding SP2.
Pages 13-10, -11, -12, -13 of this document
are titled Florida Department of
Transportation Project Reevaluation.
They are forms which must be filled'out
and signed by several officials. In part it
reads "...and it was determined that no
substantial changes have occurred in the
social, economic, or environmental effects
of the proposed action that would signifi-
cantly impact the quality or the human
environment. Therefore the
Administrative Action remains valid."
Is this really the situation after almost
10 years? Is this consistent with the words
of Kevin Thibault Feb. 12, 2002? Is this a
substantial triangle? This doesn't seem to
me to be anything but a house of cards.
Now here we are, a year after this project
started, with residents being very con-
cerned about receiving letters from lawyers
regarding eminent domain, and surveying
crews on private property as well as their
putting in stakes and cutting trees.
The BOCC remains silent Are you going
to remain silent also?

Janet Masaoy is chairman of Citizens
Opposed to the Suncoast Tollway Inc.


that the vote of the five county commissioners will
make the final decision as to whether the
Suncoast Parkway 2 will be built.


Adopt the babies
The Chronicle prints the pic-
ture of the religious (people)
holding their anti-abortion
signs. When will we ever see all
of these people lined up at the
adoption clinics to
take care of the chil- O
dren that are already
here? (They) continue
to hold signs with no
help, no help for the
kids that need help
that are really here
right now. Why don't
you organize them to
line up at the adop- CALL
tion clinic? 563-
Take off blinders
It's Tuesday, Oct. 9, and I'm
responding to the caller who
called in for the "Support the
Bush" thing in the Sound Off
today. When are these
Republicans going take their
blinders off? You cannot simply
follow somebody because you
like them. George Bush was
elected in the closest electoral
margin in America by a recount
in the state in which his brother
was the governor. Come on,
guys ... Take the blinders off
and see this man for what he is
and stand up for it. It's your
constitutional right to speak out
against your government. Stand
up for your own rights, people.
Lower impact fees
I am outraged with all the
high impact fees for everybody
to pay for the building the
homes and businesses. Let's be
reasonable about our impact
fees. We're closing the'doors
for businesses. We're closing
the doors for young people for
jobs. We're closing the doors
for a good place to live for the
young and the old. Let's call
our commissioners and
demand that they lower the
impact fees for all these, for the


(


sake of our children and our
grandchildren. Let's make it
bearable where they can live
wi t heir means and not
have to live outside of their
means, as they're doing now.
Let's call for the help.
Call all your commis-
JIu sioners and tell them
to lower the impact
fees so they can have
decent jobs and a
good place to live.
Wallet power
You know, I've been
watching the politics
around Citrus County
0579 and the country for
the past couple of
years and it seems
like the only thing you have to
do to get into a office of any
kind is have the most amount of
money, not the most qualifica-
tions. Does anyone else around
the county realize this? This is
getting ridiculous. It used to be
the good old-fashioned political
whatchamacallits, where they
turned around and they bick-
ered back and forth who was
going to be elected or who was
going to be elected for the indi-
vidual party. Now, it's who spent
the most money in trying to get
elected, not the debate for the
most, the best candidate with
the best credentials.
Different paths
I just read Cal Thomas'
"Other Voices" article in today's
Chronicle, titled "Do we all wor-
ship the same God?" I believe
the problem is not that we wor-
ship the same God, but do we
worship our own doctrine more
than God? Seems like many
have made their doctrine their
God. Therefore, I believe
President Bush is correct. We
probably do worship the same
God, just take a different path
to Him, and maybe doctrine
has become too important.

SMART

Payments

still cause

problems
DEAR BRUCE: Two
years ago, my daughter
purchased a 1994 van.
She had to get full coverage
on the vehicle because she
was still paying for it. The van
cost $3,600, and she still owes
$1,600. She took it in for main-
tenance, and the garage
installed a new gearbox -
which had to be replaced for a
second time. When she pulled
out of my yard recently, she
heard a pinging noise. She got
out and looked under the
hood. The gearbox had bro-
ken away from the frame, cre-
ating a big hole. The entire
front end had collapsed it's
no more than six inches off
the ground. Does she have a
legal leg to stand on when it
comes to paying for this van?
It can never be driven again.
She is worried that the bank
will still want their money,
even if the van is a total loss.
What is the best way to handle
this? -J.W., via e-mail
DEAR J.W.: Let's separate
things quickly. Your daughter
is concerned that the bank
will want to be paid. Well, of
course it will. The fact that the
van is not worth a dime does
not in any way diminish your
daughter's responsibility by a
penny. The fact that the collat-
eral on the loan is worthless is
another story. They have noth-
ing to repossess. But they can
still come after your daughter,
as they should. The next ques-
tion: Can the maintenance
company be held responsible
for the damage? If she can
demonstrate that their care-
lessness or incompetence
caused the damage, the
garage may have some
responsibility. Someone will
have testify to this, such as a
mechanic. Her best course
would be to discuss the situa-
tion with the company that
did the work and, if they dis-
avow any responsibility,
small-claims court is the next
step. Make no mistake, the full
coverage has nothing to do
with this, and the fact that she
owes money to the bank is in
no way diminished because of
the condition of her car.
DEAR BRUCE: Three years
ago, my husband and I refi-
nanced our home to procure
some cash to start a business.
The loans have a prepayment
penalty of six months' interest
if paid within the three-year-
note anniversary.
The first lien is an ARM,
with adjustable rates starting
in the third year. The second
lien is a balloon due within 15
years.
The three-year anniversary
is March 23, 2008. Should we.
wait until then to refinance,
or should we refinance now
and get hit with the penalty?
What is our best move? -
R.E., via e-mail
DEAR R.E.: Six months'
interest is a severe penalty
and acknowledging that the
three-year anniversary is fast
approaching, I think that
would be the time to refi-
nance.
There is nothing to prevent
you from looking for a more
favorable financing arrange-
ment now, but understand
that, with the chaos in the
mortgage market, this may be
a painful experience. You
haven't outlined the terms of
the balloon that is due in 15
years, but unless it's an
extraordinarily high rate of
interest, it is not an immedi-
ate concern.
The ARM very likely will be
going up considerably next
March. You should be shop-
ping now for a refinance to
begin on March 23, 2008.

I Don't mess with Citrus County


On Saturday, Oct. 27, State
Road 44 from Crystal River to
Inverness and Ft. Island Gulf
Beach will be filled with hun-
dreds of volunteers cleaning
up the environment on Make a
Difference Day. The organizers
of this event are not only hop-
ing to clean up the litter along
the main thoroughfare in the
county but also provide educa-
tion to drivers on how litter
and cigarette butts make a
mess of our beautiful county.
Educational signs will be post-
ed along the highway for local
residents. Also, eco-green bags
of litter will be piled at the
gates of the county landfill so
the public can see how much
litter is thrown onto our roads.


Hopefully this visual display
will encourage local drivers to
assist in keeping litter off the
roadways. Native trees will
also be planted at Ft. Island
Gulf Beach to beautify and
someday provide shade to
future beach goers.
The four-hour cleanup will
begin at the Citrus County
Resource Center in Lecanto at
7:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct 27,
with a continental breakfast
provided by Publix. After a
welcome from the organizing
community partners and a
safety briefing, volunteer
teams will be dispatched by
buses to assigned sections of
the Highway 44. Families with
children will go by bus to Ft


Island Gulf Beach. The first 300
volunteers to register will
receive a "Don't Mess with
Citrus County!" tee shirt, a
voucher for a tree sapling and
an eco-friendly shopping bag
that shoppers can use in place
of using plastic bags that fill
our landfill or paper bags that
cut down our trees. At noon,
Wal-Mart Super Center will
roast hot-dogs for the volun-
teers back at the Citrus County
Resource Center. WYKE will
also be interviewing and film-
ing volunteers making Citrus
County a better place to live.
Organizing partners for this
community wide project are

Iyith children Zachery and Serena, Renee Melchionne. Pictured back row: Chamber Ambassadors John Porter and Jennifer Duca,
chamberr Executive Director Kitty Barnes, Chamber Ambassadors Julie Vaughn and Crystal Jefferson. Rita DeSerrano opened Citrus

affordable prices. They can help whether you're moving in, out or just redecorating. There is something for everyone. The idea of a buy,
sell and consign furniture store came from when Rita lived in Vancouver as a new college graduate and had to shop at consignment
stores to fill up her apartment. She had a positive, as well as very satisfying experience by knowing that she has a choice of clean,
quality used furniture at affordable prices and is now offering that same satisfaction to Citrus County. Rita has a degree in Architectural
Technology with Co-Op, as well as Fashion Design. She has a wonderful husband, Ron DeSerranno, and two lovely children Zachary and

DIGEST
Continued from Page 1D

which allows physicians to capture
precise images of any area of the
body, including the rapidly moving
heart and lungs. The heart and lungs
frequently appear blurry when
scanned by a traditional CT scanner.
This fast scanning capability allows
important diagnostic information con-
cerning the heart to be obtained with-
in a single breath-hold, less than ten
seconds, while a CT angiogram can
be imaged within 15 seconds.
Superior images are quickly available
to enable physicians to clearly visual-
ize the heart, its vessel walls and sur-
rounding structures to detect the early
onset of coronary heart disease.
For example, a coronary CT
angiography can show stenosis, soft
plaque and calcified areas of the
coronary arteries. In many cases, this
procedure provides the information
physicians need to diagnose and
implement a treatment plan. The ben-
efit of having a coronary CT angiog-
raphy is that if the diagnosis calls for
a medication-based treatment plan, it
may save patients from having inva-
sive studies that have higher risk
involved such as a cardiac catheteri-
zation.
A 64-slice CT scan can be used to
diagnose other problems as well. The
fast scanning capability and precise
images of the body's rapidly moving
organs allows for improved vascular
studies, as well as the ability to diag-
nose issues with the kidney, liver,
spine and other organs and arteries.
Multi-slice imaging is especially useful
for examining patients who are
unable to hold their breath such as
trauma victims, acutely ill patients and
young children.
Seven Rivers upgrades
biopsy system
Rivers Regional Medical Center
(SRRMC) recently replaced its
stereotactic breast biopsy system.
The system provides women in our
community with a minimally invasive
option to traditional open breast biop-
sy. When an area of concern is identi-
fied through mammography, a breast
biopsy may be ordered as the next
step of the detection process. Early
detection is a key component to sur-
viving breast cancer and a biopsy
could either confirm or rule out a
breast cancer diagnosis.
SRRMC's new stereotactic breast
biopsy system is designed to improve
the quality, accuracy and ease of
having a breast biopsy. The unique
design of the system allows a woman
to lay comfortably positioned on her
stomach with her breasts placed
through an opening in the tabletop.
The breasts are slightly compressed
and held in a fixed position to ensure
accuracy. The tabletop is raised and
the physician and technologist per-
form the procedure from beneath the
table. Advanced computer-assisted
technology (also known as digital
stereotactic localization) is used to
map the precise site of the breast
abnormality before the tissue sample
is taken. The surgeon can see with
pinpoint accuracy the mapped image


of the breast on a special high resolu-
tion monitor and uses it as a guide to
make a very small incision, insert the
biopsy instrument and obtain suspi-
cious tissue samples. The advantage
of the new system is that it helps to
reduce the overall procedure time,
decreases the amount of scar tissue
that is typically caused with an open
biopsy and minimizes wound healing
time and chance of infection.

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE

Travel Center urges cWa-
tion when planning
Despite media hype pitting travel
agents against the Internet, travel
agents continue to embrace the Web
as a valuable source of travel infornia-
tion and encourage their clients to
take advantage of it. However, Amy;
Virgo, CTA of Nature Coast Tourism
Development Inc./NCTD Travel
Center advises consumers to exer-
cise caution before buying travel prod-
ucts online.
As part of its continuing mission td
provide useful travel information for its
clients, Nature Coast Tourism
Development Inc./NCTD Travel
Center addresses many of the comir
mon concerns and questions con-
sumers face when considering buying
travel online.
Should consumers use the Intemet
to plan a trip? "Absolutely," said Virgo.
"But the key word here is 'plan.' The
Intemet is a great source of informal
tion about destinations, hotels, attraq-
tions, local transportation and weather
and more. However, the Intemrnet often
doesn't provide the detail and depthi
travelers need to prepare a complete
itinerary."
'The bottom line is that smart trav-
elers know their time, money and trav-
el dreams are too important to be left
floating in cyber-space," said Virgo.'
"And the customer satisfaction that
comes with a travel agents hard
work, expertise and quality service will
never go out of style."

Presented by Patricia Gatto-Walden, Ph.D. and Denise Bishop, NCSP

Nationally recognized psychologist Patricia Gatto-Walden, Ph.D and Nationally certified school
psychologist and student advocate Denise Bishop, NCSP. are the dynamic presenters of this program.


We often take for granted that we
understand our gifted children. However,
all children are complex and being gifted
adds unique dimensions to one's inner
experience. This FREE workshop,
presented by Working on Gifted Issues
(WOGI) will address everyday challenges at
school, at home, and in the community
including peer relationships, perfectionism,
family dynamics, and parental
effectiveness. Please join us to learn ways
to respond to your child's individual
perspective, needs and concerns, and ways
to support her/his growth and well-being.

Funded through a grant from the Florida Department of
Education with support from the Flori'da Association for the
Ciftdl (FIA G)


Co-sponsored by the
Citrus Organization for
the Gifted and PAGES
(Partners Allied for
Gifted Education and
Support) of Hernando
