Phillips questions

buying land owned

by ex-commissioner
MIKE WRIGHT

Chronicle
Talk about a land investment
The two parcels were bought in 2003
for $8,143.
Four years later, the county is hoping
to take the property in eminent domain
for a drainage ditch.
The purchase price: $98,100.


The owner: former Citrus County
Commissioner Jim Fowler
Commissioner Vicki
Phillips is openly won-
dering why the county
wants to pay Fowler
S w what she considers a
ridiculous amount for
property on a residen-
tial roadway that paral-
lels South Croft Avenue.
Jim Fowler Officials say they want
purchased to buy Fowler's parcels
land in 2003. on South Fitzpatrick
Avenue, plus two adja-
cent ones on South Charles Avenue, for a
drainage retention pond to serve the
eventual widening of Croft.
But the Croft widening isn't projected


in the county's five-year transportation
plan and Phillips questions the need
for the drainage project
pegged at $568,500 -
at a time when the
county is strapped for
4, cash.
"This just seems
exorbitant to me," she
said. "It just seems over
7 the top."
Vicki Philips The eminent domain
questions proposal was included
county. in the county commis-
sion's Tuesday's con-
sent agenda. Phillips had the item
removed for discussion.
Commissioners delayed a vote for
two weeks while the project is


researched further.
Phillips said she had recently
learned that Fowler owned two of the
four parcels identified for eminent
domain. She said Fowler did not dis-
close his interest in September 2006
when the commission voted to have the
property designed for drainage.
Fowler, who did not run for re-elec-
tion last year, left office when his term
expired in November 2006.
The item to contract services with an
engineering firm was included on the
Sept 26, 2006, consent agenda. It did
not identify particular parcels; howev-
er, it pinpoints where the drainage proj-
ect is to take place.

LAND
Continued from Page 1A

Commissioners did not pull
the contract off the consent
agenda for discussion and
therefore, it was approved
unanimously along with numer-
ous other items.
Fowler did not disclose his
property ownership.
He said Friday he hadn't
thought to do that because the
contract didn't specify which
lands would be used for the
project
After looking at the consent
agenda item Friday on the
clerk's office Web page, Fowler
said:
"From looking at this, there's
no way in the world I would
have known from this agenda
item I would possibly have a
conflict of interest here."
About a month or two after
that vote, Fowler said he
received an offer from the
county "in the 80s range" for
the parcels. Fowler said he
made a counter offer and did-
n't hear about it again until
last week when someone told
him that Phillips and
Commissioner Joyce
Valentino brought up his own-
ership during Tuesday's com-
mission meeting.
Fowler said he bought the
property in 2003 to expand his
nearby business and as a
homesite for one of his busi-
ness managers.
"I never used my position as
a commissioner for 12 years to
speculate on property because
I knew things were going to


happen," he said. "I didn't
serve as a commissioner for 12
years for personal gain or
because I needed a job."
Phillips: 'I would never
buy a lot like that'
Croft Avenue is a heavily
traveled north-south roadway
that connects State Road 44
and County Road 486. County
officials say they know the
roadway eventually will need
widening but there isn't enough
money to do anything for at
least the next five years.
Public Works Director Glenn
McCracken said the county still
looks for available property for
road projects to buy for future
need.
Coincidentally about a year
or two ago, he said, the owner
of a health food store on Croft
told county officials he wanted
to expand. McCracken said the
county had an offer to the store
owner: Donate frontage for
future Croft right of way, and
the county could allow his
stormwater to flow into a
drainage retention pond that
officials wanted to build behind
the store.
Officials targeted the four
parcels in late 2006. A private
appraiser hired by the county
pegged the value of Fowler's
two parcels at $82,500, Phillips
said.
The appraisal, she said,
included nothing to justify that
value, such as comparing simi-
lar property sales.
Property appraiser records
show the two parcels climbing
significantly in value from 2005
to 2006, and then dropping in
2007. In 2006, the land was val-


ued at $60,500; in 2007, the
value had dropped to $56,100.
The taxable value also dropped
between those two years, and is
about $10,000 less than the true
value, according to the proper-
ty appraiser's Web page.
Phillips said property is
appraised at its highest and
best use. However, this land is
targeted for a drainage reten-
tion area because it is low-lying
and likely to flood.
"I would never buy a lot like
that," she said.
And she also wondered why
the county wanted to use emi-
nent domain to buy land that,
she said, is questionable as nec-
essary for public ownership.
McCracken said the county
wants to condemn the proper-
ty because of a "cloud" that
exists on Fowler's deed. He
said the man who sold Fowler
the property might have sib-
lings WHO still claim owner-
ship. Taking the property for
public purpose, even if the
eminent domain is not con-
tested, will clear the title
issue.
McCracken said the project
is worthwhile, as land costs
are sure to rise.
"Despite what Mr. Fowler
paid for it, the price is not
going to get any cheaper," he
said. "Croft is on the radar
screen. Everybody knows it."
Fowler, for his part, said he
is stymied by why Phillips is
making an issue of the pur-
chase. He said he never mar-
keted the property nor
offered it for sale to anyone.
"It's immaterial to me," he
said. "I don't need to sell the
property."

TWELVE STEPS
The 12-step program for
. people addicted to drugs
and alcohol.
* Step 1 We admitted we
were powerless over alco-
hol that our lives had
become unmanageable.
* Step 2 Came to believe
that a power greater than
ourselves could restore us
to sanity.
* Step 3 Made a decision
to turn our will and our
lives over to the care of
God as we understood
Him.
* Step 4- Made a searching
and fearless moral invento-
ry of ourselves.
* Step 5 Admitted to God,
to ourselves and to anoth-
er human being the exact
nature of our wrongs.
* Step 6 Were entirely
ready to have God remove
all these defects of char-
acter.
* Step 7 Humbly asked
Him to remove our short-
comings.
* Step 8 Made a list of all
persons we had harmed,
and became willing to
make amends to them.
* Step 9 Made direct
amends to such people
wherever possible, except
when to do so would injure
them or others.
* Step 10 Continued to
take personal inventory
and when we were wrong
promptly admitted it.
* Step 11 Sought through
prayer and meditation to
Improve our conscious
contact with God. as we
understood Him, praying
only knowledge of His will
for us and the power to
carry that out.
* Step 12 Having had a
spiritual awakening as the
result of these steps, we
tried to carry this message
to alcoholics, and to prac-
tice these principles in all
our affairs.
The 12th step can have a
slightly different twist,
when the message is
intended for addictive or
dysfunctional behavior,
rather than exclusively for
alcoholics. The modified
step says "...we tried to
carry this message to
other addicts..."

Drug Court Coordinator Jaime
Mazzie.
Thirteen people graduated
from the program on Nov. 9.
The rate of re-offense is
approximately 14 percent,
while the national average is
between 4 percent and 29 per-
cent
Drug Court is an option for
people addicted to mood alter-
ing substances. The program is
a minimum of 18 months, and
provides treatment and close
supervision to assist with
rehabilitation, Mazzie said.
The program is a joint effort
between the courts, State
Attorney's office, law enforce-
ment, Public Defender's
office. The goal of the program
is to graduate a clean, sober
and productive member of the
community.
A related program,
Dependency Drug Court,
hears case where the
4 Department of Children and
Families has alleged abuse or
neglect on the part of a parent
as a result of drug abuse.
Dependence Drug Court is a
cooperative effort between the
courts, Department of


DRUG COURT
* Drug Court is a court intervention program.
* The program, a minimum of 18 months long, provides treat-
ment and close supervision to help with rehabilitation.
* Coordinator Jamie Mazzie said the program is a structured
approach to help the client achieve the highest possible level
of drug-free functioning.
* Applications to enter Drug Court are available at the Citrus
County Jail, Public Defender's Office and Drug Court
Coordinator's Office. The completed application is sent to the
Drug Court coordinator's office, which begins the application
process.
* A copy is sent to the State Attorney's Office and Citrus
County Sheriff's office to determine who is eligible from a
crime standpoint. The process includes a background check
for violence and sales of controlled substances. Results of
the State Attorney's review are sent to the Drug Court coordi-
nator. The application is presented to the Drug Court Team.
The applicant appears at the next Drug Court session and is
told whether the application is accepted.
* If accepted, the applicant is assigned to a treatment provider
and begins Drug Court. Successful completion of Drug Court
will mean the applicant can have adjudication of a felony
withheld. If rejected, the applicant returns to the felony court
docket.
* The Drug Court office is at 110 N. Apopka Ave., Inverness.
The office phone is 341-6721.

Spivey commended the
graduates for taking the road
less traveled. He said they had
done the hard thing, and the


right thing.
But he reminded them they
were not graduating from
addiction.
"Although this is a drug
court graduation, I hope your
realize you have a problem
that never ends," he said.

India's sights, sounds bombard first-time visitors' senses


She Boeing Aircraft build-
- .+ ing in Belleview, Wash.,
TL may be the largest vol-
ume building of all. The
Venetian (casino) in Macau
may be the largest building as
measured by square feet of
floor space and the list goes
on. But the most
beautiful building l 2.:
of all is the Taj
Mahal, said to be
one of the eight
wonders of the ,.* ,
world, burial place tv
*of Mumtaz Mahal
and Shah Jahan, in
Agra, India.
In getting there
you may go east or Neil S
west, as India is SPONTA
very near the oppo- TOUR
site side of the
globe from Florida.
Whichever direction you
chose, be prepared for flight
time in excess of 24 hours --
long enough to cause one to
wonder which day it is.
Upon arrival, a first-time vis-
itor's senses are bombarded
with sights and sounds unlike
any other place. The beautiful


Sa
At


smiling people, the intensity of
color, the aromas of my favorite
foods and the monuments of
antiquity coupled with a
serious case of jet lag, quickly
offset by an adrenaline rush -
can be overwhelming. The
rewards, however, last a life-
time, and leaves one
with the desire to
return.
The most popular
i India tour consists
of the so-called
"golden triangle,"
/ beginning in New
SDelhi, then to Agra,
j Jaipur, and return-
ing to New Delhi.
lawyer Tours as short as
NEOUS eight days allow the
GUIDE visitor to view many
famous forts and
palaces, but do not
allow free time for leisure or a
more intensive investigation of
the area.
The first and most dramatic
stop the Taj Mahal rises
213 feet and is flanked by four
minarets, each 162 feet in
height. There is controversy
over the origin of the Taj, but


the most repeated and widely
accepted theory is that Shah
Jahan, the most charismatic of
the mughals of the time, built
the Taj as a memorial to his
wife. The story is that when his
favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal,
died after delivering their 14th
child, he was so devastated that
his beard turned white. He pro-
ceeded to build an unsur-
passed monument in her mem-
ory. He garnered an army of
20,000 laborers to create, in 22
years, what you see today.
Completed in 1652, the symme-
try and elegance is indescrib-
able and its enormous size can
be judged by observing the
people on a raised platform
that surrounds the monument.
The approach to the Taj is
through a giant arched gate
opening into the garden, reveal-
ing the indescribable memorial.
It is here that a full view of the
Taj is seen in the reflection pool
leading up to the base of the
structure, and where gasps of
delight can be heard as new vis-
itors arrive and catch their

first view. It is truly breathtak-
ing!
The entire structure is pure
white marble, from quarries
200 miles away, with much of
the sidewalls inset with pre-
cious and semi-precious stones,
and gold. The stark white mar-
ble has an opalesque quality
whose color changes with the
light of the day. We were there
late in the day as the moon was
rising and the dome appeared
to glow a subtle pink hue in the
twilight, an indescribable
vision into the past
There is no question in my
mind that the Taj Mahal is the
most beautiful building in
existence, a perfect building,
supported by a story of love
and devotion found nowhere
else in the world.

Neil Sawyer is a 22-year

Saturday marks end
of cross country season
JOHN COSCIA

Chronicle
DADE CITY Less than 12 hours
after the Crystal River Pirates foot-
ball team thrilled their fans with
what might arguably be called the
biggest gridiron victory in school his-.
tory, the Pirates were back at it again.
This time, it was the boys and girls
cross country teams that took center
stage as both squads competed in the
Class 2A state meet at Little
Everglades Ranch in Dade City. By
day's end, the boys team was able to
lift their heads high with a sixth
place finish that left them in the top

which is great for us. We ran right
where we ran all year.
"The past three years we've
improved with every state appear-

live up to because we're losing sever-
al seniors that were key players on
this team."
Leading the way for Crystal River
was senior Blair Beeler, who compet-
ed Saturday in his last cross country
race as a Pirate.
And he made it count
Beeler ran a 16:43. That was good
enough for 14th place in the field of
183 runners. It also qualified Beeler
as the top state finisher in the county.
"Blair ran a great race. He has
been solid all year," Byrne said. "He
made his last race a memorable one.
He deserves this. He's worked hard
all year, actually all four years, and
these are the kind of results you get
when that hard work pays off."
In addition to Beeler, sophomore
Brandon Kempton ran a 17:29, senior

CROSS
Continued from Page 1B

Eric Hughes finished with a
17:33, senior John Thompson
ran a 17:56 and senior Zach
Moore crossed the line in 18:03
minutes, to all play a part in
the team's sixth place finish.
Also running for the Crystal
River boys but not figuring in
the team total were senior
Michael Rabold (18:14) and
freshman Derick Hannigan
(19:00).
As for the girls' team, while
their team total of an 18th
place finish wasn't as impres-
sive as the boys' squad, they too
had plenty of which to be
proud a district title, a top
regional finish and a place in
the state meet as a team all to
their credit for the 2007 season.
Leading the way for Crystal


River girls was junior Melissa
Schmidt who ran a 21:10. Also
figuring in the Lady Pirates
team scoring were senior
Danielle Dixon (21:27), junior
Kristen Hall (21:51), freshman
Morgan Schwall (23:04) and
freshman Larissa Gough
(23:13). Also running for Crystal
River but not figuring in the
team scoring were senior
Sasha Jaquith (23:22) and
freshman Alicia Thompson
(25:33).
While both teams had plen-
ty of which to be proud, the
most impressive run of the
day belonged to Seven Rivers
Christian School seventh
grader Chloe Benoist, who's
time of 20:33 in the Class 1A
meet was the fastest time
posted by any girl in Citrus
County. When one considers
the fact that she still has five
years of competition ahead of
her, one can only wonder what


feats are ahead for the Lady
Warrior.
Also finishing with an
impressive run was Lecanto
senior Jonathan Junkins, who's
time of 17:00 was good enough
for the second fastest time in
the county, just behind
Beeler's finish.
"A lot of our guys are better
at track than cross country but
throughout this run we've
allowed no talk of track until
cross country was finished,"
Byrne's admitted. "Now we'll
take a few days off and then
we'll refocus ourselves for
what we hope is an equally
impressive track season. This
was a great year. We accom-
plished everything we hoped
for and more. A district and
regional title and a sixth
place finish at the state meet.
Wow! I couldn't be prouder of
these kids. They did a great
job this year."

LYNNE DUKE
The Washington Post
on't look now
" : n g.Somebody's.watch-
ing.
But you knew
that, didn't you?
How could you
Snot? It's been
apparent fdr years that we're being
watched and monitored as we tra-
verse airports and train stations, as
we drive, travel by train, fly, surf the
Web, e-mail, talk on the phone, get
the morning coffee, visit the doctor,
go to the bank, go to work, shop for
groceries, shop for shoes, buy a TV,
walk down the street. Cameras,
electronic card readers and
transponders are ubiquitous. And in
that parallel virtual universe, data
miners are busily and constantly
culling our cyber selves.
Is anywhere safe from the watch-
ers, the trackers? Is it impossible to
just be let alone?
There, in that quintessentially
public space, the Mall in
Washington, D.C., came Michael
Thrasher, 43, an ordinary guy, just
strolling on a lovely recent day. We
found him near an entrance to the
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Memorial, where a tower-high sur-
veillance camera loomed overhead.
Thrasher didn't immediately see
it. But when asked his feelings
about privacy and surveil-
lance, he said, "You just
feel like there's always
someone looking at
you."
He's a baggage han-
dler at Reagan
National Airport, so he
knows that he's watched
at the workplace. Since
Sept. 11, 2001, transit
hubs have been laden
with layer upon layer
of surveillance: cam-
eras, biometrics, sen-
sors, even a new thing
called the "behavior
detection officer."
And it's good,
Thrasher says, that
someone's watching
out for the bad guys. "Look what
kind of world we're in now."
But Thrasher doesn't like the
way his private space is shrink-
ing. Like surfing the Web and
knowing his data trail can easily
be mined: "If I'm not doing any-
thing illegal, why is it any of their
business?"
Like being on the telephone
and believing it could be tapped:
"In the back of my mind, I'm
thinking anybody could be listen-
ing to whatever I say"


And just going about one's daily
business, walking down the street,
going to the market?
"It just feels like there's no priva-
cy now at all when you're doing pub-
lic stuff."
Suddenly, he sees the camera, his
exclamation point, and throws his
hands in the air.
A watching culture
All this surveillance, monitoring
and eavesdropping is changing our
culture, affecting people's behavior,
altering their sense of freedom, of
autonomy That's what the experts
say: that surveillance robs people of
their public anonymity. And they go
even further, saying that pressure
for conformity is endemic in a sur-
veillance culture; that creativity
and uniqueness become its casual-
ties.
While there are benefits to sur-
veillance the sense of security,
the ability to view crime scenes -
the loss of autonomy represents the
downside of our surveillance-
heavy culture, says Jeffrey Rosen,
a George Washington University
law professor and author of "The
Naked Crowd: Reclaiming
Security and Freedom in an
Anxious Age."
"You need a sphere of immuni-
ty from surveillance to be your-
self and do things that people in a
free society take for granted,"
says Rosen. Things like going
to the park or to the market.
The loss of such
autonomy is one of
the "amorphous
costs of having
a world where
there's no
immunity from
surveillance.
"This will trans-
form the nature
of public spaces
in ways we could
hardly imagine,"
he says. "People
obviously beh-
ave differently
when they're
unsure about
whether they're
being observed. We
know this from personal expe-
rience.
"I'm not at all suggesting
that Orwell's '1984' is around
the corner," he continues. "But
things will change, and some
of the changes will be good
and others will be bad."
Christopher Slobogin, a
University of Florida law pro-
fessor, writes in his upcoming
book, "Privacy at Risk":

motes freedom of action and an
open society. Lack of public
anonymity promotes conformity
and an oppressive society."
After all, who is Big Brother look-
ing for in all this surveillance?
People who are different, who do,
not fit a preconceived norm.
In their insistent way, those pub-
lic digital message boards that urge
us to "Report Suspicious Activity"
are pushing a sense of that norm. In
effect, they call upon ordinary peo-
ple with no training or expertise to
become surveillants and enforce a
code of conduct, an expected norm,
based on what might seem, to them,
suspicious, or just different.
We watch what we say on the
phone. Where once it was just a
joke, now it is real: You never know
if you might be tapped. We don't
joke about bombs or hijacking,
especially not in public. Not that
we'd want to, mind you, but who
remembers the days when it was
just a joke? In mixed company, we
don't say anything about al-Qaida
that isn't flat out condemnatory. And


we are aware, alas, that our library
book selections could be added to
our possible dossiers, as per the
USA Patriot Act.
How far can it go? We have only to
recall the 2006 film "The Lives of
Others," which portrays how the
Stasi of Communist East Germany
deployed hundreds of thousands of
ordinary people to spy on their fel-
low citizens and turn them in.
The work of the new "behavior
detection officers" (BDO) watching
us at airports is all about enforcing
a norm. Part of the Transportation
Security Administration, the offi-
cers are trained to detect extremely
nervous, deceitful or unusual trav-
elers by observing travelers' facial
expressions and their behavior.
In training the BDOs, "we teach
that everybody's been in an airport
long enough to know what the norm
is," says Carl Maccario, a program
analyst for what the TSA calls SPOT,
or Screening Passengers by
Observation Techniques. "There's

H ere's the good news:
both the Citrus
County Commission
and the Crystal River City
Council have officially
opposed the creation of a
water bottling plant at Three
Sisters Springs.
Here's the bad news: the
opinions of our elected offi-

the Southwest Florida Water
Management District, the
regional agency that issues
the permit for the commer-

The new owners of the

You may remember that I
went on a tirade a month ago
in this column about what a

Helpful hints

for successful

Thanksgiving

Here's some tips to pon-
der as Thanksgiving
approaches. I've failed
to bear many of these in mind
in years past.
When it's dinner for two,
three or four, don't buy the
biggest turkey in the store just
because it seems like a good
idea at the time. While that's
OK when purchasing pump-
kins for Halloween, food's a
different matter.
Thanksgiving never offi-
cially falls on Friday
Turkeys should be thawed
before cooking. This is critical
to a successful Thanksgiving
dinner. To do so, don't pur-
chase frozen turkey on the way
home from work the night
before the holiday and pop it
in the fridge.
Don't make a command
decision on Thanksgiving
morning to use the outdoor
grill to cook your bird. Using
the oven goes a long way
toward keeping peace in the
family.
Don't assume you can pop
a 16-pound bird into the
microwave and have dinner 12
minutes later. Even I know that
doesn't work.
Take the packet of giblets
out of the inside of the turkey
before stuffing and/or cooking.
My preference is to throw
them away.

unfortunate that the
hiked cost for failure
to conserve water may
mean little to some
with the financial
wherewithal to pay
the bills without
thinking twice.
Gluttony, however, is
not an admirable trait
In a similar vein,
developers who
ignore Florida-friend-

Now is the time to be good stewards
of our water resources.
The cost of failing to do so has just
gone up at least for Sugarmill
Woods, Citrus Springs and Pine
Ridge residents and if stiff fees
can't dissuade those who squander
our water, the toll for all who live in
Citrus County could be devastating.

Hot Corner: WATER RATE INCREASE


Punishing all
To curb water use, the county is
deciding whether to do a water
(rate) increase. They have meters on
these homes, so they know exactly
who is abusing the water system.
Instead of punishing those that are
abusing it, they're going to punish
the rest of us who have cut back
and conserved to save water. Boy,
this is a great theory. We're using
too much water, so let's go out and
raise the rates on the people not
using it. Way to go, Citrus County.
No wonder people don't want to
build in this county anymore.
Making sacrifices
I live in Sugarmill Woods. I've
been very proud. I've cut my water
bill back 35 percent. That's right,
it's taken a lot of sacrifices to con-
serve. My reward from the county:
They're going to raise my water bill.
Who are they kidding? Everybody
down here is on meters and they
&f* -


What about wells?
I read with interest in the Chronicle
about the water usage, especially in
several communities in Citrus County.
However, I see no mention whatsoev-
er of those people who use county
water for drinking, cooking and
bathing, but have private wells on
their property for filling swimming
pools and irrigation of their lawns
and plants. I know that in Sugarmill
Woods, I see people with private wells
on their property who run sprinklers
every single day indeed, even when
it's raining and they're using the
same water that could be used for
human consumption. How about a lit-
tle article on how mulch water you
think is being pumped through these
private wells? You're doing an excel-
lent job; I think you can do better.
Bills doubling
I just see in the paper where cus-
tomers in Sugarmill Woods who use
10,000 or less will actually see a
slight reduction in their bills, of as
much as 4.5 percent. But big users
at 75,000 a gallon a month, for
example, will see their bills double.
Well, I live in Inverness and our rates
are much, much higher than that. It's


know exactly who's abusing the sys-
tem. Why not punish the people
who are breaking the rules and not
punish the people who are trying to
conserve?
Go after wasters
Today's paper, Nov. 13, says that
water rates are going to be going up
in, among other places, Pine Ridge,
because of high water use. In an
article yesterday in the paper, it
said, according to Robert Knight,
that fewer than 9 percent of the
customers in Pine Ridge account for
55 percent of water used there. I
see now that our "Tax first, ask
questions later" commission is
going to raise the rates on every.
body. That's punishing the innocent
for-the act of a few. They need to
get their heads out of the sand, as
many others have said. Look at this
problem the right way and let's go
after the people who are using all
our water, and leave the rest of us
who are following the rules alone.


time we get the council on the ball
and give us the rates that we deserve
instead of sticking it to us every time.
Paying the price
This is about the article in the Nov.
13's front page in the Chronicle on the
water rates. I notice they picked out
Pine Ridge, Citrus Springs and '
Sugarmill Woods as the heavy users. I
noticed they left out Citrus Hills, which
probably uses as much water as any
of these three areas, not counting the
water they use on their golf course.
Every night you drive through their
neighborhood, you'll see water being
run all the time. But I guess since
they're on private wells, they're exempt
from water usage, although our water
comes from the same source. Some
people pay the price. Ever since the
county purchased the utilities from
FGUA, everybody will pay the price.
Luscious lawns
The luscious green grass at Terra
Vista along (County Road) 486 is
just breathtaking. Unfortunately, as
a resident, I will not have a lush
green lawn such as the Terra Vista
residents have because I am allowed
to water my lawn only once a week.


LETTERS to the Editor


Bush's war
Bush got us in this terrible war. He
ruined our lives, our children, their
children and the people all over the
world.
Where are his religious beliefs? He
killed thousands of Iraqi people and
destroyed their beautiful country
This country is in debt
$9,062,233,056,870.14. In the 1990s we
were $5.9 trillion in debt It's costing
us, the taxpayers, $275 million a day
just for the war in Iraq.
Lay nine trillion dollars end to end,
they would reach all the way to the
sun and back eight times and you still
have enough to wrap around the
whole planet 3,424 times.
We should send Bush to the moon
and leave him there.

Just feeding itself
Sunday's article addressing the
Development Services division work-
load is a great example of what is
wrong with government Gary
Maidhof's comments illustrate the
fact that government exists to feed
itself, not to be responsible to the peo-
ple who pay for government.
Maidhof admits that his department
exists on reserves, our money,

is a barometer of workload, is down.
He is admitting that during a time of
reduced demand for services, he is

If Maidhof worked in the private

workload is down.

trend coming, so he built reserves.
That is an admission that he feels that
he is entitled to have our money in
his budget instead of us having it in
our banks. What is so sad is this
reflects the attitude of the people we
trust to look out for our interests.
Where is our county administrator
who supervises the Development
Services division? Why isn't she
demanding an increase in productivity
and reductions in Uxpenses that are
called for when workload is down?
Where are the county commissioners
who want our support and trust, yet
they allow departments to build
reserves so that efficiencies and job
performances do not have to be man-
aged? I can understand building
reserves for capital projects, infra-
structure concerns and maintenance,
but not to carry extra payroll when we
don't have the work demands to justify
that payroll. It makes mose sense to
pay overtime during high demand than
to carry extra payroll and the benefits
that come with that payroll during nor-
a


mal work levels. Today, we are operat-,
ing at historically normal levels, so it's
time for the county to pare down to
normal levels in spending.

Trial for Snipes !
Actor Wesley Snipes wants his tax -
evasion trial moved from "racist"
Ocala (a hotbed of Klan activity) to
New York City, which recently dedi-
cated a memorial to the 17th and 18th
centuries burial site of 15,000 free
and enslaved Africans.
This enslavement was removed
from history books and the conscious-
ness of New Yorkers, but a slave
museum opened which revealed New
York City's shameful racist past with
artifacts ("Negroes, sold here"). This
has shaken museum visitors because
"Northerners have historically
absolved themselves of complicity
while heaping blame upon the shoul-
ders of the plantation south," said
The New York Times.
Generations of Americans have been
taught slavery was entirely a Southern-
institution. However, New York City
occupied a pivotal position in the slave
trade for hundreds of years, and 20
percent of New Yorkers were enslaved
by 40 percent of the households. Only
Charleston had more slaves.
In modern times, major league
sports teams in New York City and the,
North forbade blacks to play until 1047
and beyond, and after World War II,
thousands of New Yorkers fled to
Levittown on Long Island, where
blacks were not allowed to live. And
there have been race riots and other
frequent racial incidents in New York
City, including a recent noose display
at Columbia University. At least in New
York City, Snipes will not have to worry
about getting a racist Southern jury.

A turkey is a turkey, but stuffing is a work of art


When I was a little fel-
low, Christmas was
the only holiday I
liked better than Thanksgiving.
I enjoyed drawing pictures of
pilgrims, Indians and turkeys,
ind I especially liked the tradi-
tional family feast
My mother was an artist
extraordinaire when it came to
preparing turkey, stuffing,
giblet gravy, mashed potatoes,
candied yams and cranberry
sauce. She made the most
scrumptious stuffing using a
,recipe for "cornbread dress-
ing.",
Back during the 1930s, '40s
and '50s, when the Cummer
Sons Cypress Company was in


Skipping school
I'd like to voice my opinion
on a Citrus County high school
... I called there the other day
to speak to the principal about
knowing of a senior high stu-
dent who was skipping school.
I left my name and number at
his office. Whatever happened
to common courtesy of return-
ing a call to deal with the mat-
ter on hand? Apparently, they
might not be in concern of stu-
dents skipping school during
senior high. I would think peo-
ple would want to know. The
child stood out front of my
home with her parent putting
the younger child on the bus
for grade school. She was
laughing, joking. The mother
had let her stay home due to a
party they were going to have
for the weekend, to get ready
for it. Calling the school to let
the principal know that a child
:was skipping school didn't even
,rate a call back on it. What
-happened to at least common
:courtesy of returning a call?
'Does the school system not
:respect anybody that calls
'them? I left a phone number at
*the principal's office...
Water control
In regards to recycled water:
DiGiovanni says that we will sell
,the water to the golf course
that uses 750 gallons a day.
This is likely better water than I
:get from my well. Three
,Sisters, they want to pull more
water out and sell. Gated com-
'munities insist on green grass.
It's time for the state or fed to
'take control. I will not conserve
: until they take care of the big
.picture. Citrus County, you
'need to back local citizens.
Join conservation groups/like
TOOFAR or anything else that's
'going to try and stop this non-
sense.
Constant harping
This is Nov. 1. I'm calling in
!to a statement put in the paper
-today called "Minority views,"
where they're accusing the
president of lying. I'm a tax-
paying Korean War veteran and
I'm sick of these leftwing liber-
als accusing our president of
lying when he was just echoing
the same statements that was
being put out there by the left-
wing liberals such as Ted
RKennedy, John Kerry, Nancy
Pelosi and this bunch ...
They're like a bunch of com-
munists; they get one little
statement and they just harp
on it forever and ever, and I'm
sick of it.
Haunted house
Out of everything the
Chronicle has ever advertised
or published, I can't believe
there was nothing about the
haunted house at the Citrus
County Auditorium this past
week, which was absolutely
fabulous. They outdid them-
selves. It was as good as
Universal Studios or Halloween
Horror Nights. They did a great
job for everyone at the auditori-
um. It was the best. I hope
they do it again next year. It
was well worth it.
Homestead exemption
On the surface, it appears
everyone will have their home-
stead exemption doubled to
$50,000. But in reality, it's only
those whose assessed value is
over $50,000. If you're like me
with a small older home with a
$49,000 assessment, we will
get no additional relief at all. A

few years ago, the state gave
each county the option of rais-
ing the homestead exemption
for low-income people on fixed
incomes. But our county com-
missioners never felt we were
entitled to it, as some counties
did. So if you're elderly or low
income, thank your commis-
sioners the next time you see
them.
Did you hear?
Did anyone else in Citrus
County hear Ginny Brown-Waite
call medical insurance for
lower-income children horse
manure besides myself? I
heard it on NPR.
Rebuild Mexico
I just heard that Mexico is
experiencing the worst flooding
they have had in years. Let's
give them a helping hand and
let's send back all the illegals
so they can help rebuild their
country.
Better shelter
Citrus County's animal shel-
ter is pathetic. Why can't we
build a shelter that's air condi-
tioned, heated, has outdoor
runs, bathing and grooming
rooms and also a pet viewing
room? Shame on the way it's
run. The animals are there by
no fault of their own. Why do
we have to see the dead ani-
mals loaded into a truck? My
son was shocked by this sight.
We went there to adopt a pet.
We are such a rich county,
surely we can build a great
shelter and set an example.
But then again, look at how we
treat our elderly people. Just
visit a nursing home. This new
shelter should be on Citrus
County's wish list. If you cut
some salaries, we could build
it. The volunteers can do just
so much God bless them.
Let's build a shelter. Please tell
us how.
Gushing oil
Let's see if I've got this right
now: Bush, Cheney and Rice
are all oil people. Bush opens
his mouth and threatens some-
one, oil shoots sky high, put-
ting more money in his pocket.
Do you still think he's a
dummy?
Tough at the top
Hillary Clinton is complaining
she was ganged up on in her
recent debate, and this is the
woman who wants to be leader
of the free world. You're in the
big leagues now, Hillary. Act
like a pro. If you can't take it,
bow out gracefully.
Alcohol in gas
I've been hearing an awful lot
lately about the use of alcohol
in our gasoline. Some gentle-
man wrote in today's paper -
this is Saturday that we
need more ethanol use. Well,
what the man doesn't know is
alcohol has about half the BTU
content of gasoline. That
equates to about half as much
power as gasoline. That's not
very economical. You may
remember that back in the
'60s and '70s, the Indianapolis
racers tried to go nonstop and
they were using gasoline and it
was working. It was a little too
flammable, so they had a cou-
ple of accidents and so they
outlawed it. But the point is,
gasoline has almost twice as
much available power as alkie.
It's not practical to go to alco-
hol, especially considering they
want to use corn, which is
something we eat, OK?...For


environment."
Being different? A big prob-
lem.
Becoming invisible
If we know we're being
watched and know there is an
expected mode of behavior, how
does that change our actions?
Call it "anticipatory con-
formity." Shoshana Zuboff, a


ny's cook
As is obvious, the
primary ingredient
p is cornbread, but the
Secret is in the sea-
h soning sage. She
used a lot of sage!
For those of you who
might be interested,
here is a short
rannen course in creating
CE OF stupendous sage-

stuffing:
Cook a pone of
cornbread. Gauge the size of
your cornbread to the size of
your turkey; you will want
enough to fill the bird. Boil a

30, 40, 50 years, I've been
working around cars that got
good gas mileage 25, 30,
35, 40 and even more. We've
all gone to large, moosey cars
that are not going to get good
gas mileage. The trick is to get
our cars more sensible. Let's
get some decent cars that will
use the fuel to good advantage.
Tipping carriers
I subscribe to the Chronicle
and I pay yearly. When I
include the tip, does that go
directly to my carrier or does
that get split among all the car-
riers? And also, is the carrier
told who gives them the tip and
how much?
Excellent series
Tim Hess has written a
series of three great articles on
teen driving. I hope the resi-
dents of Citrus County espe-
cially those with teenage chil-
dren driving take the time to
read them and heed the advice.
There is a lot of good ideas in
there. If you didn't read them, I
strongly suggest you look back
at earlier issues of the
Chronicle and read them. Tim
Hess did an excellent job. (He
put) a lot of thought and feel-
ing and grief into his articles,
and he did a great service for
the residents of Citrus County.
So please take the time to read
them.
Going after grubs
Armadillos are like any other
animal; they go where the food
is. You most likely
have some nice juicy.
grubs and other . 0o
insects that they like
in your lawn. Get rid
of the bugs and you
get rid of the armadil-
los.
Simple solution 1
This is in response CALL
to the person who had
the problem with 563-
armadillos digging up
in their yard. I had
exactly the same problem, but
I finally solved it by just taking
away their shovels.
Taking a break
Sunday, Nov. 4, sitting down
reading the Chronicle, I notice
all the burglaries and the thefts
now in the paper and how
crime has risen. Then I decided
I had to go to Home Depot, so
I drove up (State Road) 44 ...
headed to Home Depot. On my
way there, I saw two squad
cars parked side by side. They
were doing nothing, just sitting
there talking. I went to Home
Depot, did my shopping and
went back about 20, 25 min-
utes later. They were still there.
Our taxpayers' money at work.
No wonder the crime rate and
the burglaries are going up.
Rosary prayers
, Thank you for the lovely arti-
cle on the Holy Rosary
Saturday, Nov. 3. I carry my
Rosary with me and pray it
every day. If you are familiar
with the Bible story where the
apostles fished all night with-
out catching any fish, and on
the way in saw Jesus on the
shore and he asked if they had
caught anything and they
answered "no," he told them to
cast their net off the port side
and they netted 153 fish. When
we recite the Rosary, we start
by saying the Apostles Creed
and Our Father, which is the
Lord's Prayer, then three Hail
Marys for faith, hope and love.


Harvard social psychologist
who has studied information
technology for decades, coined
the phrase in 1988.
Applying that concept to the
post-Sept 11 era, Zuboff says
she sees anticipatory conform-
ity all around and expects it to
grow even more intense.
"I think the first level of that
is we anticipate surveillance


thoroughly, then season it
inside and out with salt, pep-
per, and, you guessed it, sage.
Wash the turkey giblets and
put them into a pot. Dice an
onion and cross-slice a cup of
celery, then toss 'em into the
same pot. Fully cover the items
in your pot with water, add salt
and pepper to your own speci-
fications and add a liberal
amount of that's right -
sage.
Boil this conglomeration
until the giblets are tender.
Allow both the giblets and the
boiled eggs to cool, then chop
up the giblets, peel and slice
the eggs.
In a big mixing bowl, crum-


Then there are four joyful mys-
teries of Jesus' birth with 10
Hail Marys for each mystery.
Those are followed by five sor-
rowful mysteries of Jesus cruci-
fixion with 10 Hail Marys each
mystery. And then the five glori-
ous mysteries of Jesus resur-
rection with 10 Hail Marys for
each mystery. That makes a
total of 153 Hail Marys.
Coincidence? I don't think so.
Investment income
In answer to the call about
the amount of money paid for
the Cason property: I see it as
an area where the city can cap-
ture the amount back. Build a
five-story, low-income housing
complex and allow the people
in the black community who
have been displaced by the
county and city to have first
choice on these apartments.
Rental income and depreciation
can be a tax write-off.
Parking solution
About the parking lot dilem-
ma in downtown Inverness: Put
in meters. Or better yet, elimi-
nate all parking except in those
areas where the parking lots
have already been built. Or bet-
ter yet, have the state code
inspectors come in and con-
demn those old buildings with
the hole-in-the-wall shops and
have them torn down and make
new parking lots. Or move all
the municipal departments out
of the city and let the mer-
chants close down for lack of
business. Maybe that's the
solution.
t Not for retiring
Recently, we've
been getting a lot of
call-ins about Social
Security only going
up a 2.3 percent
"'- increase this year in
January. Well, first of
all, Social Security
was never, ever set up
0579 to be a retirement
program. It was sup-
posed to supplement
your retirement. And when
Social Security was set up,
there was never supposed to
be cost-of-living raises. That's
why Social Security is going
bankrupt. But that's the "give-
me generation," they're already
on Social Security and they
don't care how they drain it
because they really don't care
if the people coming behind
them have anything.
Doing extrications
Hey, to the paid firefighter
who would like to know why
they're wasting their time going
to accidents: Just so you know,
since you're paid and all ... in
the state of Florida to be a
licensed EMS provider, you have
to provide extrication. Citrus
County ambulances do not
extricate. They have a mutual-
aid agreement with the county
to send a fire truck for extrica-
tion purposes. They cannot roll
on any EMS calls without this
capability. That's the law. You,
being a paid firefighter, you
probably should know that.
Bigger, noiser
To the people of Citrus
County: I don't know about
Inverness Airport because I
don't travel that much down
there, but in Crystal River I've
gone to many of the girls' soft-
ball games, and the jets are
coming in and out of Crystal
River airport and they have
been as long as I've been here,
which is 18 years. So what's


and we conform, and we do
that with awareness," she says.
"We know, for example, when
we're going through the securi-
ty line at the airport not to
make jokes about terrorists or
we'll get nailed, and nobody
wants to get nailed for cracking
a joke. It's within our aware-
ness to self-censor. And that
self-censorship represents a


ble the cornbread, add half of
the giblets and half of the eggs,
toss in just a little more sage
and thoroughly mix all of these
ingredients.
Use about half of the broth
from the giblets to wet the dry
ingredients. If need be, use a
can of chicken broth to further
moisten the mixture until it
holds together in a congruous
goo. Stuff the stuffing into the
turkey and cook it until the lit-
tle red thing on the bird pops
out. !Caution! Never, ever stuff
the turkey the night before you
cook it. It might seem like a
time saver, but be safe instead
of sorry.
Use the remaining broth,


the big deal about building the
airports any bigger to accom-
modate jets just to make big-
ger, noisier planes to come in
through the county?
Lack of caring
This is to the citizens of
Citrus County: Everybody who
votes should read the article
from the paid firefighter who
had no idea why he had to go
to ambulance (calls), that it
was a waste of his time. Does
this sound like people who real-
ly care about you? Volunteers
never (complained) about going
because we cared about what
we were doing ... Big differ-
ence. You're spending a lot of
money to have these paid fire-
fighters ...
Common-sense driving
Just because somebody's
driving 35, doesn't mean that
you disregard all others and
forget common sense and pass
where you can endanger your
life and somebody else's. Quit
blaming the old drivers for
accidents when young people
are taking chances that they
may never survive.
Cost of living
Social Security cost-of-living
increase is 2.3 (percent).
Check and see what your con-
gressmen, Democrats and
Republicans, how much cost of
living they got. It's sure a lot
more than 2.3 (percent). We
need to talk to these people.
Self-defense link
I'm sorry no one has ever
showed me how being at war in
Vietnam and attacking Iraq has
ever been a matter of our own
self-defense. Iraq had no
WMDs, Iraq was not connected
to Sept. 11. I need somebody
to point out just exactly how
that added to our self-defense.
Hard on elderly
We are retired, elderly people
on a small Social Security
income and we have to budget
our money to pay our bills. We
have a small, older mobile
home that the tax assessor has
assessed at $72,000 and we
received our tax bill. With
homestead exemption, it is
$739. We don't have the
money to pay it in full. We
called the tax assessor about
paying this tax bill in payments
of $200 a month until paid by
March 2008, and they said
they cannot accept that, that it
has to be paid in full by March
30. You know, this is really bad
on the retired, elderly people
on a small income. They need
to do something about this.
Trees in ponds
Can anyone explain to my
why the state of Florida spends
money to plant trees and
shrubs in retention ponds such
as the one on State Road 44
East by Eden Gardens instead
of using the funds on mowing
and road maintenance?
Left-turn lanes
I would just like to know who
the (person) was who put two
left-turning lanes on (State
Road) 44 going to (County
Road) 486. I have been almost
killed twice because of that.
Somebody really needs to look
into it. I wish the Chronicle
would look into it and find out
why this was done. You've got
big tractor-trailer trucks turning
and they have no place to go,
so they cut in front of you and
the next thing you know, you're


diminution of our freedom."
We self-censor, she says, not
only to follow the rules, but
also to avoid the shame of
being publicly singled out.
Once anticipatory conformity
becomes second nature, it
becomes progressively easier
for people to adapt to pew impo-
sitions on their privacy, their
freedoms. The habit has been


giblets and eggs, along with the.
pan drippings that come from
the cooked turkey, to make
giblet gravy.
Will I ever be able to fix,
cornbread stuffing as good as:
that my mother made? Of,
course not. But, when I stuff a;
bird, pop it into the oven and,
begin to smell the wonderful:
aroma, I relive thel
Thanksgivings of my childhood!
and am thankful once more for;
my heritage and for cornbread,
stuffing.


Fred Brannen is an
Inverness resident and a
Chronicle columnist


just about underneath the
truck. Can somebody please
answer my question?
Costly to live here
I just need to make .the com-
ment that Citrus County is just
sucking the life out of us resi-
dents and business people.
Something has to be done. We
can't afford to be here any
longer.
Pine Ridge lawsuit
Why is the president of the
Pine Ridge Civic Association
suing to have Pine Ridge's
deed restrictions abolished? Do
the members of the civic asso-
ciation support his actions? I
would think that the civic asso-
ciation should work to enhance
the community, not destroy it.
Editor's note: According to a
current lawsuit filed by property
owners Francis Hamilton and
David Shea, some of the deed
restrictions expired. The status of
the deed restrictions has not been
determined, as the lawsuit has
not been settled.
Sprinkle mothballs
For the person calling in
about armadillos in the yard:
Just use mothballs. Sprinkle
them around and they will dis-
appear in a few weeks, but so '
will the armadillos and it won't'
hurt anything.
Replace legislators
Thanks to the Florida state
legislators, they've done nothing
to fix the tax problem. They only
did it for themselves. If I was
governor of Florida, the first
thing I would do is eliminate the
homestead exemption and lower
taxes by 50 percent. Guess
what? We'd have more money
than they've ever seen before.
Eliminate the homestead
exemption. Then I'd fire all the
state legislators and replace
them all with 6-year-old kids. I
think they're a little bit smarter.
Money hungry
I'd like to know what's wrong
with the City of Inverness. Red
Lobster and Olive Garden would
like to come in here, but impact
fees are so high. I don't think
they should charge an impact
fee. They're just money hungry.
Editor's note: Impact fees are
assessed by the county, not the
City of Inverness.
Department's choice
I would like to respond to
the paid firefighter asking why
paid firefighters respond to
back up the EMS calls instead,
of simply fighting fires. I
would like to say that as a
paramedic in Citrus County,
firefighters respond to EMS
calls because it is how they
justify their jobs. They do not
run enough fire calls to justify
having the paid firefighters,
and firefighters running EMS
calls is part of the county and
the fire department's plan to
justify why they need paid fire-
fighters. Used to be when we
had volunteers, we called for
fire to help when we needed
help on critically ill patients.
Now they come to lots of calls,
whether we need them or not,.
because that's the chief's deci-
sion about how to dispatch his
firefighters to their calls, and
that is the fire department's
protocol. It has nothing to do
with Nature Coast EMS. It has,
nothing to do with us needing
to have more employees. It is
simply the fire department's
choice to be in an EMS-assist
service.


set People have "internalized
the surveillance architecture"
within their own subconscious.
We have yet to reach the
level of surveillance of, say, the
ubiquitous retina-scanning in
the movie "Minority Report"
But the technology is changing
quickly.
Just because you're paranoid
doesn't mean no one's watching.

Citrus County, stop yearning for factories


ou can't make a silk
purse of a sow's
ear!" Or so the old
saying goes. So why, then, does
Citrus County spend money
and effort trying to encourage
light, clean manufacturing to
locate here?
We don't have access to need-
ed transportation routes on the
land, sea or air. We do not have
a pool of trained manpower at
any level of education for man-
ufacturing or high-tech jobs.
What do we have that would
make us more attractive to
manufacturing or tech busi-
nesses than other counties
competing for the same busi-
nesses? Apparently nothing,
based on the results of efforts
by the taxpayer-funded eco-
nomic development council.
What does Citrus County
offer? For me, it was the friend-
ly, small-town atmosphere, the

To the person who is interest-
ed in getting ethanol-based fuel
on the market soon, I have this
comment: In the several
months since I've stopped
using gas with 10 percent
ethanol blend, I've increased
my gas mileage by almost 1
mpg. My inboard computer ver-
ifies this claim. Also, have you
noticed the hit we all take at

eggs, dairy products any-
thing that feeds on or is con-
nected with the feed on corn -
is going to have an impact.
Ethanol may be the answer
sometime in the future, but not
from corn. We should all be
very careful what we wish for.
Where's the help?
When the Democrats took
over the House and the Senate,
gasoline was $2.12. They're
there to help the people, is
what they told us. Gasoline is
$3.05 to $3.09. Where's the
help?
Show respect
I'm calling to complain about
people bashing older drivers.
I'm tired of it. Just think about
it, all you younger guys and
girls. If it wasn't for us older
people, you wouldn't even be
here. So please show a little
respect, stop being so hothead-
ed, and maybe things will be a
little bit better.
Repeal tax
I agree with (the) letter to the
editor Nov. 5. Citrus Memorial
Hospital taxing Lus is taxation
without representation. We did
not vote for this. It's going to
mean a week's paycheck on my
part-time job. I think it's bad.
It's really cruel and I think it
should be repealed now.
Taxing twice
This is in regard to the Citrus
Memorial Hospital taxation. If
they fill out the proper forms,
they can receive indigent funds
from the federal government
and we won't need to be taxed
twice.
Vietnam veterans
I attended the Sgt.
Flanagan's ceremony yesterday
at the Lecanto Post Office. Very
nice ceremony. But also, the
Vietnam veterans got nothing
given to them. (Years ago) we
were spit on, we were cursed
at, called baby killers. This is
fantastic that they want to
build all these guys up as
heroes, and George Bush is try-
ing to sell his war to the

can sell it at exorbitant

I thought it was a good
question.
The county commission
passed a resolution against
the idea.
On Tuesday, one of the
bureaucrats from SWFWMD
responded to an invitation by
the Crystal River City
Council to explain the per-
mit operation. In effect, the
bureaucrat told the city
council that while the

Sea treaty
In regards to the LOST, Law
of the Sea Treaty, now in
Congress for ratification. LOST
remains a seriously flawed doc-
ument designed to transfer,
wealth and technology from
industrialized states to those of
the Third World. It is against all
our founding principles and will
threaten our sovereignty. It will
give legal jurisdiction to the
earth seas to a U.N. tribunal,
which should be subject to
their order and regulation. In
1982, President Reagan reject-
ed the law explicitly. And it will
also be able to tax the citizens
of the United States. So please
contact your representatives in
Washington and vote no on
this, please.
Saving lives
On Monday, Nov. 5, there
was a Sound Off about fire-
fighters' calls. The person call-
ing in said they were a paid
firefighter. You make me
ashamed to be associated with
you. I was a professional fire-
fighter for 25 years. In the city
I worked in, a large eastern
city, we ran approximately 18
calls every 24 hours; two-thirds
of those were medical calls. If
you're not in it to help the pub-
lic, to save lives, then I suggest
you resign and let somebody
who is truly a firefighter a
firefighter who saves lives any
way, shape or form. If you
can't handle the heat, resign.
Bizarre economics
There's a Sound Off that
says if the government would
cut payroll taxes, that the vast
underground off-the-books
economy would participate in
the payroll tax. That's the most
bizarre thing I ever heard. That
kind of thinking comes from a
little plastic bag it's called
grass. Don't inhale the stuff or
you might think the same.
Lost senses
To the person who said they
love to watch jet planes, and
bring more to Crystal River
Airport: You need to see a doc-
tor quick. I think you have lost
two of your six senses hear-
ing and smell. The noise from
these aircraft is deafening and


really appreciates local
opinions, the local opinions
carry no weight in the deci-
sion-making process.
Sort of makes you wonder.
SWFWMD is the one gov-
ernmental agency that has
the right to levy a property
tax against us even though
voters don't have the right to
elect the people who make
the decisions.
We have bureaucrats
answering to bureaucrats,
and they could not care less
what the general public, or
our elected officials, really
think about their ideas.
It makes me long for the
day when Nancy Argenziano
was on the case.

Energy, the power

the larger employ-
ers and a huge

community. The
major source of rev-

retirees who earned

ty income has remained stable
even through national eco-
nomic downturns. Until just
lately, the cost of living and
property taxes were compara-
tively low.
Why is county leadership so
anxious to change all of this? If

the odor of the jet fuel is pun-
gent, to say the least. Two
forms of pollution.
Unfair gas tax
Impact fees for new roads, 6
cents tax on gasoline for new
roads, gas over $3 a gallon.
Who can afford to buy gas to
drive on these new roads? Way
to go, commissioners. You all
deserve the award for taxation
without representation for all
the citizens of Citrus County.
Replace worn flag
I'm calling concerning the
American flag that hangs on a
pole just off County Road 486
at the corner of Essex Street in
Citrus Hills. I don't know who
owns the pole or even what it's
for, though I believe it's another
of those poles that have been
recently erected to improve the
cell phone transmission.
Regardless, it is an
extremely large white
pole that stands an S U
estimated 300 feet off 0
the ground and it is
visible for miles
around. At the time it
was erected, an
American flag was
attached and it was
quite attractive. But
over time, the ele- CA.L
ments have taken. 563-
their toll and now the
flag needs to be
replaced. There are certain
guidelines for displaying the
American flag and they should
be reviewed by the company
that is responsible. As it now
stands, it shows a disrespect
for our flag and our country.
Now that Veterans Day has
come and gone, it would be a
good time to replace this flag
with a new one and to make
certain that it is properly light-
ed at night.
Taxes for schools
Take a look at your property
tax statement and see how
many things that the schools
are taxing us for. There are
three items on there that they
have big amounts that they tax
us for. And the only reason is
because they pay too much in
salaries to these people who
shouldn't deserve anything. I
came from up North, which is
a proven statement to many
people, and those people up
there do not charge for belong-
ing on different commissions
for the schools. This is ridicu-
lous down here. Plus the hospi-
tal charges us enormous prices
and then wants money from
tax on our homes. This has got

governing board, but they're
political appointments made
by the governor.
The bureaucrat visiting the
Crystal River Council told
the elected officials that their
concerns were about a minor
amount of water and they
shouldn't really be upset.
You see, Big Brother has
all the answers and we're
just not smart enough to see
the big picture.
What mush.
SWFWMD misses the
point of the Three Sisters
Springs commercial water
operation. We, the citizens of
Citrus County, are serious
about our water. We thought
SWFWMD understood.
If you want citizens to con-

schools and sheriff's deputies
beyond any gain in tax rev-
enue. We would add commut-
ing traffic to our roads and
make it more difficult for
retirees to get around.
We would need to build
many smaller homes and use
more fresh water per house-
hold. In all likelihood, the
county would be less inviting to
retirees who, in comparison,
require fewer government
services and provide stable
revenue. We could replace
something we are well adept at
(retirement services) with
something for which we have
no aptitude. Seems to make lit-
tle sense.
I have heard the comment
that "our children have to
leave the county to find good
jobs." That is an absolute
crock! There are opportunities
here in all the learned profes-


to stop.
Naming school
I just finished reading the
morning paper and I see where
you named a federal facility
after one of our local soldiers
who was killed in action over in
Baghdad. I think that was a
nice idea, but what I would like
to know is why is it you can
name a federal building after a
soldier and not a county school
after a longtime resident who
devoted his life to the children
of Citrus Springs and the
school? I'm sure that all the
people present, past and the
ones coming in would recog-
nize the name of the school.
Muslim crackdown
The activities of Muslims in
Australia: The Australian prime
minister made it clear that
extremists will face a crack-
down if they insist on living
under Islamic Sharia
law rather than
Australian law. The
prime minister hinted
that Americans
should start voicing
the same truths in the
fight against terror-
S ists.
Iraq war
)579, Winning the `W,:Jr in
Iraq is a neo-conser-
vative chicken-hawk
pipedream. The war in Iraq, if
at all, is a civil war between the
Sunni and the Shiite sects. The
U.S. is an occupying force
caught in the middle attacked
by al-Qaida, who constitute no
more than 10 percent one side,
and Iraqi insurgents who want
us out of their country on the
other. Their weapons of choice
are the roadside bomb and an
occasional ambush. Rarely do
they go head to head with U.S.
forces. AI-Qaida's numbers may
eventually dwindle.
Roadway landscaping
In today's paper, they're
going to spend $440,000 in
Inverness to landscape the
roadways. Where is the outrage
from the Chronicle? Where's the
outrage from the people of this
county? Granted, it's federal
money. But who cares? It's our
tax money. What a waste. But
everybody that complains
about taxes only complains
about the ones they pay. They
don't care if somebody else is
paying a fortune. This is a
crime against taxpayers.
Spectators on road
It's Tuesday evening. I'm


serve water, get with the pro-
gram. Don't pump our spring
water out of one of the most
delicate ecosystems we have
and expect us not to notice.
Public input should matter.
We're emotional about this
one. If they ignore the obvi-
ous hypocrisy of this bottling
plant application, then they
sacrifice the credibility of
their position that citizens
should conserve water at
home.
We should conserve water
so you can sell it? I don't
think so.
Three final points should
be made. First, Three Sisters
Springs should be a state pre-
serve and our elected officials
need to get back on the band-


when slicing the cooked bird.
While I don't object to chunks
vs. slices, there's some sort of
etiquette thing involved.
N Some people don't care for
big flour lumps in their gravy.
An egg beater attached to an
18-volt, battery-powered drill
generally takes care of the
lumps. Have paper towels on


sions, in health care technolo-
gies, business services and in
the schools and hospital
administrations. There are
opportunities to start small
businesses and in construction
services. But really, how close
must your kids be? Would
Ocala or Tampa be too far to
visit?
I think we would be better off
focusing on preserving the
things about the county that
attracted most of us. We should
encourage retirees to locate
here by providing superior
services and a chance to enjoy
the "golden years." We should
maintain and enhance our
lakes and our gulf waters.
Perhaps we could further
expand facilities for higher
education in the county to pro-
vide the educated work force
"clean" businesses require. In
doing that, we also could


driving home with my wife after
a long day's work and you
would not believe the spectacle
I witnessed in Crystal River.
There apparently was a plane
that was going to crash-land in
Crystal River without its land-
ing gear. These people were
jamming the roads. These peo-
ple were causing accidents. I
shouldn't call them people -
they're lemmings, like those lit-
tle animals that follow each
other. Why would they cause
such a spectacle to sit there
and watch a plane crash land?
We got home in time to watch
it on TV, which was non-spec-
tacular. But these people have
the audacity to get in the way
of everybody else trying to get
home, so they can see a disas-
ter. These lemmings. .
Firefighter's duty
I read in Sound Off where a
paid firefighter asked, "Could
someone please tell me in
Citrus County why the career
firefighters are constantly back-
ing up the EMS on medical
calls?" The firefighter says it
takes them away from fighting
fires and auto accidents, which
they were hired to do. I'm a
retired Philadelphia firefighter,
as well as a Delaware County,
Pa., volunteer firefighter. I find it
most disturbing that a career
firefighter isn't aware of his
obligation and duty to serve the
citizens during emergencies.
Real firefighters are trained to
respond to all types of emer-
gencies and render assistance,
whether it's a child's foot
caught in a drain, a gas leak,
toxic spills, heart attacks,
strokes, plane crashes, etc. I
could go on and on. Citrus
County has hired career fire-
fighters in an attempt to reduce
the response times to emergen-
cies, to get first responders on
the scene as quickly as possible
to initiate assistance to victims
to all tragedies. It took many
years for us to earn the respect
now afforded to professional
firefighters, career and volun-
teer. You're a civil servant in an
honorable profession. A lot of
people would love to have your
job. Get to it.
Wasting water
I see in the paper again
they're worried about water in
Florida, but Citrus County sure
is not worrying about it. You
can go by the fire stations and
they're washing the fire trucks
and the ambulances every day.
I'm sure the police cars are
washed every day someplace in
the county. And all the county

tion dollars to take this prop-

Second, the new owner of
this property who plans a
high density development on
the land has vowed to be
an environmentalist and pro-
tector of this land. How can
that possibly be believed, at
this point?
And finally, the city of
Crystal River, which has
passed its own resolution
against the water bottling
plant, also has the right to
control land use. The Three
Sisters Springs property is
not zoned for a commercial
business. Any application by
the owner for such a land use
change should be rejected.

improve the educational
opportunities we offer our high
school students. Entrepre-
neurs and businessmen with

attracted to communities offer-
ing superior education.

thoughts.

What's in a name?
The SHARE Club has lowered
its age limit from 55 to 21.
What about the words that
SHARE stands for? It's stands
for "Senior Health Activities
Resource and Education."
While some states consider you
a senior citizen at the age of
55 and others at the age of 62,
none of them consider people
as young as 21 as a senior citi-
zen. If the SHARE Club has to
lower its age limit to 21, then:
they should change the name,
to something other than letters
that stand for seniors.
Start bus service
This is for the county com-,
missioners of Citrus County::.
It's Nov. 7 and I would just like
to say, you know, you folks
don't care one bit about the-
citizens of this county. If you:
did, you would put in some :
kind of a bus service that
would run from Floral City to
Inverness, from Inverness to
Crystal River, and from Crystal
River into Homosassa. You
don't have to do it every hour

that, but you should think of'
the people of this county.

to 35-year-olds? I'm just curi'

where are you hiding?
Roaming Rottweiler
Come on, Chronicle, help us
out. We're getting desperate.
No one will help. About six
weeks'ago, someone lost,
dumped, deserted a young'
male Rottweiler in Sugarmill
Woods. He is shy, hungry and
afraid and he's wandering ;.
through our yards and streets.
We can't catch him we've
tried. He's a big, strong boy'
and we don't know how to
help him. The Humane
Society said, "We can't take
him." Animal Control said, ,
"We can't catch him." And the
sheriff said, "He hasn't hurt
anyone." What can we do?
Surely somebody out there
can help us.


And any other compromises
the city might have been con-
templating to assist the
developer in his high-density
development plan also
should be abandoned.
The bottling plant propos-
al is an insult to residents
concerned about the envi-
ronment and our water.
SWFWMD needs to kill the
permit application or face
the wrath of this community.

Voice needed
To those people who would
like to get rid of Dr. Dixon's
columns, I say: Please, please,
Chronicle, don't do it. He has a
lot of good stuff to say to us
and I think we really need his
voice. I appreciate you having
his column in the paper and I
want it to continue.
Short motto
Following is a brief summary of
the philosophy of Lt. Col. Dixon:
"I've got mine; you get yours."


v VWidening roads
Mrs. Phillips says that we
have to have these high impact
fees to pay for widening our
roads, etc., so forth. So I'm
wondering if she's planning on
cutting the 6-cents gas tax that
was placed upon our county to
pay for the widening of the
roads. We don't need them
widened...I think she needs to
go back to her bookkeeping to
check things out.
Gas tax reason


- One of our commissioners
says if we take the impact
MM fees away, we won't have any
taxes to take care of the
S roads. We have 12 cents in


Another fan
Add me to the people who
want to keep Dr. Dixon's col-
umn ...
Bring back respect
I would like to cheer on Dr.
William Dixon for his article of
Nov. 11, about the changing val-
ues of our system and people
showing respect and dressing
with respect and how things
were back in the '60s, where you
didn't see filthy words written all
over or have kids saying them in


Hot Corner. FEES


gas tax that are supposed to
take care of roads. Six cents
was put on just last year.
Wake up, people.
Down all over
It seems like people in this
t county are trying to snowball
us into believing that the
impact fee has something to
do with the housing market
and the business market. Well,
they know as well as I do that
the whole country is down a bit
the house buying by the
people and also by the big
businesses and small business-
es. It's down all over. And they
don't even have impact fees, a
lot of them. So figure that one
out.


school, and they dressed decent-
ly and modestly and acted like
ladies. I would love to see this
come back. I'm with him. I think
Sodom and Gomorrah is not far
away with the way things are
going today. I would love to see
young girls and young women
dressing appropriately and get-
ting respect and giving respect.
Three cheers for Dr. Dixon. He
did an excellent job. It's just what
my husband and I've been talk-
ing about for the past couple of
months about how bad things
have changed.




Ignore the cries
Partly because of fewer peo-
ple moving into Florida, it's offi-
cial; there's a statewide build-
ing slump. It is not our impact
fees. Maidhof admits to slower
home construction, but says:
"There are some big projects
out there. We have a lot of big
commercial projects in the
works." By lowering impact
fees, real estate people and
builders want Citrus County
taxpayers to subsidize their
commissions and projects.
That overlooks that we taxpay-
ers would keep paying for the
rising infrastructure costs.
Commissioners need to ignore
the cries to lower impact fees.


Washing driveways
I live in Sugarmill Woods. I
don't know if the association
waters the front more than six
times a week, but I do know
this: An awful lot of people
(are) cleaning down their drive-
ways and wasting a whole lot
of water, especially since the
driveways in Sugarmill Woods
are huge. Got to look into that
if you want to stop the
drought.
Hello to Wooten
This is addressed to the
Chronicle and I sure do wish
that you would print this
because I would like to see it.
-Hello, Josh Wooten, please
come back as a county com-
missioner. We're going to vote
.for you. There's a whole bunch
of us in our neighborhood who
want you back.
Short shopping trip
I'm calling about the Citrus
County bus company. I had an
appointment this morning to
go to Lowe's I waited 45 min-
utes and when I called the
company they told me that I
would have to wait another 15
minutes and I was supposed to
-come home at 11. Now I don't
know how anyone in their right
mind can think that you can go
into Lowe's and be out of there
at 11 or maybe before 11 to
catch that bus. I wish there
was something that could be
done about it.
High-profile cruisers
Don't you busybodies out
there get it? Deputies taking
their cruisers home and using
them for an occasional person-
al use it's all about being
-seen. And that policy has
undoubtedly deterred crime or
some other type of mischie-
vous behavior. A community I
once lived in also parked cruis-
ers that were decommissioned
or unfit for daily use in strate-
gic spots. That cut down on
speeding and trash throwing
out much better thing than
the few dollars they get for a
worn-out vehicle. So put a sock
in it.
Hold students back
Michigan is making a huge
mistake in allowing students to
take a test over two and three
-'times 'til they pass. That is ter-
- rible. The first mistake that's
,'being made in schools is not
keeping a child back when it
doesn't pass the subjects in
second and third grades. Some
'students are not ready for
-school and parents have the
S.choice of keeping her child
Z back. A parent that I knew is
keeping her child back in third
-grade because he was getting
Q C's and D's. By keeping the
student back, the student went
from C's and D's to A's and B's.
Thanks for help
I was in an accident. My son
and I were in an accident on
Saturday and I just wanted to
thank the people who came up
and helped me and my son out
of the car, and the sheriff's
(office). That's about it. Thank
you.
Luminous mysteries
I'd like to point out a couple
,of corrections to an otherwise
commendable article titled
"Making the Rosary count," in
'the Religion section of


Saturday's paper. The five new
mysteries that were added
were the luminous mysteries,
which focus more on Christ's
public life, and they were incor-
porated in 2002 by Pope John .
Paul II long after the death of
Pope Paul XI.
Phony intelligence
We must win in Iraq so we
won't lose the confidence to
attack other nations if we don't
like their politics or if they
won't do our bidding? Where
have you been? ... The attack
on Iraq was predicated on
phony intelligence by a corrupt
and dishonest presidential
administration, an ignorant and
incompetent conference, and a
military too cowardly to raise a
red flag of caution. I can't
believe that with a master's in
Middle East studies (a writer of
a letter to the editor) can't
comprehend the long-term con-
sequences of our Iraq blunder.
Oil prices
Well, I see now that oil is at
an all-time high with the
Democrats in control of the
House and the Senate. I guess
the Republicans aren't the only
evil ones in bed with the oil
companies.
China's products
To the person who called in
that China doesn't want to kill
us people here and they don't
want to become the world
power: Who are they kidding?
Batteries from China, every-
thing from China is a disgrace.,
There isn't anything I buy any-
more and I am so dissatisfied
because I can't buy USA prod-
ucts. The ones from China are
disgusting. China itself, I'm not
saying is disgusting. I'm saying
what they're doing to the
United States of America is
disgusting. And they trade?
What are they trading?
Bathroom charges
I agree that we should be
charged for sewer and water
use, not because we've got two
bathrooms, like me. I'm alone
and I'm 83 years old. How
much can I use in water and
bathroom use? Give me a
break, please.
Escaping growth
This is in response to (a) let-
ter to the editor about stopping
growth. If I had a nickel for
every person who has told me
that they moved here to get
away from growth, I would be a
rich man ... Look in the mirror.
You are the growth. You need
to get used to it or just move
on.
Flags on streets
Our flags are on the streets
of Crystal River. We are so
thankful to see our flags flown
again on the streets of down-
town Crystal River. It gives you
a wonderful feeling when you
drive through town and see
them waving at you. Our
thanks to all who were involved
in getting this wonderful sight
back for all of us who really
appreciate your hard work and
time. Thank you again.
Older deputy
I would like to make a com-
ment about the deputy killed in
Florida (as) he was taking an
inmate to court. They said he
was 76 years old, the deputy. I
didn't realize they were allowed


to work at that age. Do they
just work 'til they get ready to
quit? Is there not a mandatory
age that they need to quit
working? I mean a 10-year-old
child could whip him in a fair
fight. That wasn't fair for him
to have to contend with this
inmate. I'd like to know what
the cutoff date is.
Three officers
This is in response to
Wednesday's Sound Off, "DUI
arrest," where the woman is
wondering why three officers
arrested one young woman. It
could have been a possibility
where the officer who pulled
her over was a male, and male
officers cannot legally search
female people that they pull
over, just for insurance reasons.
And he could have also been a
canine officer, and canine offi-
cers obviously can't arrest
somebody and put them in the
back of their cop car. SLo that's
probably why they had to call
somebody else.
Gulf drilling
Don't you think it's about
time we started drilling for oil
on the Gulf of
Mexico? China and
Venezuela are going O
to be down here 501
doing it. And when
you watch the fishing
shows on Saturday,
off Texas and
Louisiana they're
always fishing around
the oilrigs. This is
insane. We're going to CALL
have China and 563"
Venezuela pumping
the oil out of the Gulf
of Mexico when we could be
doing it. I don't know what's
the matter with this country.
Attend meetings
I'm calling in reference to the
Sound Off of Nov. 5, "Land
purchase." I suggest to the
caller, do us city residents a
favor and come to a city coun-
cil meeting and express your
opinion in front of the council,
city manager and the taxpay-
ers. It is not the land purchase
that bothers you; it is Frank
DiGiovanni, the city manager,
you have an ax to grind with.
What a shame.
Who's paying?
Question: The new sewer
plant project who's paying
for the transmission line from
the new plant to the private
Inverness Golf and Country
Club at a cost of $2.2 million
to water the greens and fair-
ways? I must be missing some-
thing here. If public money is
to be used, shouldn't the pub-
lic have access to the country
club? With $2.2 million, we can
buy the golf course and open it
up to the public.
Speeders' paradise
I just wanted to call Jeff
Dawsy's attention to the fact
that the new two-lane highway
that opened up on (County
Road) 486 is a speeders' para-
dise. The speed limit is 45 and
you would be hard put to find
anyone going that slowly. Fifty-
five to 60 is the preferred rate.
Perhaps if a few tickets were
dispensed, drivers would start
to slow down a bit to the 45
mph.
Look out for China
Remember back in early


1941 when the emperor of
Japan came over and shook
President Roosevelt's hand?
And how long after that did we
have Pearl Harbor? Look out for
China. They're getting ready.
Can I apply?
In the Nov. 8 Chronicle, an
article on water violators. The
county commission has author-
ized the hiring of two code
inspectors at a cost of
$200,000 including vehicles
and equipment. How nice it is
to spend other people's money.
How do I apply for the job?
Broken bargain
Flea market buyers beware ...
I paid $25 for an older, realistic
phonograph/radio combination.
I asked them if it worked, to
which they replied, "Yes." It
does not work. You took $25
from a senior. Shame on you.
You looked like such honest
people. I would like to give this
back to you. Please call me:
746-0657.
Thanks, young man
I was at Sweetbay's in
Dunnellon. I found I'd left my
keys in my locked car. A won-
derful young man in a
yellow Jeep drove me
and my groceries
home so I could get
another set of keys. I
found later I also got
his sack of tomatoes
by error. I can't find
him to return them,
but I do want to tell
everyone how kind he
was to an old lady.
Thank you so much,
young man.
Super Bush
This is in response to the
articles blaming President
Bush for all the tragedies, like
California fires, Katrina, inferior
products from China. President
Bush must be a selfish, mean
person. But what I don't under-
stand is where he gets all his
super powers. He must be a
Superman incognito. You would
think he would use those super
powers to do good, not evil.
After all, there are those who
believe that Bush enjoys killing,
enjoys the deaths of soldiers
by bombings and beheadings.
Drunk on bike
Just another angry call from
an aging baby-boomer hippie
who's mad at the way our coun-
try's going. It's Big Brother,
1984. Is this Stalin, Russia, or
Hitler's Germany? I read an arti-
cle in the paper about the
police department arresting a
guy for DWI on a bicycle -
drunken bicycle riding? So they
noticed that he had bloodshot
eyes ... It wasn't like he
swerved into a car or caused an
accident or something.
Comparing Vietnam
The Iraq quagmire aside, I
take issue with Mr. McFadden's
characterization of the Vietnam
War. The U.S. was never about
to turn the corner in Vietnam.
The pacification program, of
which he speaks, was only par-
tially successful countrywide.
The U.S. military was incapable
of fighting a guerrilla war. U.S.
lives were squandered due to
inept military planning and
leadership. Preoccupation with
enemy body count was a MACV
problem, not the media's. High
collateral damage in civilian


casualties was the result, just
like what is happening in Iraq.
Support veterans
Citrus County needs to sup-
port our veterans always
support them. One way is to
close your businesses on the
Veterans Day holiday so the
employees can attend the cere-
monies. I'm taking note
Monday on who is closed ...
Have a great day, Citrus
County.
Alaskan gas
Where is the gas from the
Alaskan Pipeline going? Why
are we paying other countries
$100 a barrel for oil? Could
someone please have some
answers for these questions?
Whiners' capital
I've lived in Citrus County for
15 years and I've come to
believe that Citrus County is the
capital for deadbeats and whin-
ers. You go golfing and you
meet people who are on disabili-
ty. They can't work, but they can
play golf. People have children
and they want healthcare for
their children. Don't have chil-
dren if you can't afford them'.
People complain they don't get
enough Social Security.
Evidently, they didn't work long
enough and hard enough to
make decent Social Security.
The elderly want everything for
nothing. Who pays it? The poor
people in the middle who have
worked two jobs all their life.
High wages
Do not criticize CEOs for
high wages of $3 million a year
when ballplayers get as high as
$10 million and $20 million a
month and they can go out and
fall down and you still have to
pay them.
Sheriff's Office
Before criticizing, know what
you're talking about. Try the
Citizens Academy that the sher-
iff's office puts on. You'll find
that we have one of the most
efficient sheriff's (offices) in the
United States. So know what
you're talking about before you
start criticizing them.
Can't stop growth
Valentino is right that growth
will come regardless of impact
fees. But we don't want the
builders to put more money in
their pockets or the developers
or real estate people just with
lower impact fees. Our impact
fees are lower than most coun-
ties around us, and some coun-
ties are raising theirs. Funny,
that fact is seldom mentioned
in the newspaper. Valentino is
right. Impact fees will keep our
growth at a good pace.
Right to speak
First of all, I have to say I've
been subscribing to the
Chronicle for 20-some years
now. I have yet to see anything
in there of mine that I call for
Sound Off. I have as much to
say and as important things to
say as anybody else does.
Lot values
With all the Sound Offs
recently about impact fees, I'm
a little surprised that no one
has mentioned the huge prob-
lem we have in Citrus County
for property owners. I own a
small lot behind my home to
park my small boat on. No one
has bought or sold a lot in this


neighborhood for more than 15
years. The value of the lot was
$3,000 two years ago and now
it is $15,.000 in value. This is
not a commercial area and will
never sell for that amount.
Residential empty lot values
need to be rolled back now.
Our property appraiser and tax
assessor have lost their senses.
War funding
The recent Clift column critical
of the Democratic Party for fail-
ing to oppose President Bush's
war funding was right on the
money. As a lifelong Democrat,
I'm ashamed of my senators
and congressmen for voting to
continue funding of a war proven
to be based on lies. Democrats
are afraid of being identified as
not being supportive of our
troops by leaving them in Iraq
without funding for supplies and
equipment. Of course, that's
another lie propagated by the
president. Without the funding,
the troops would have to come
home. Democrats were elected
in a landslide in '06.
What next?
What good is it for a citizen
to call their elected congress-
woman, in this case, and ask
them or tell them about a
problem that needs to be
addressed when it is never
taken care of or never even
answered? So how could any-
body get any help from their
government if their legislative
body is totally deaf to anything
that they suggest? Somebody
tell me what to do now.
Not drunk
The Chronicle should try to be
more evenhanded in presenting
the news. In the Nov. 8 paper,
the article about Matthew
Bennett says that his blood-
alcohol content was .06 per-
cent, just a bit below the state's
legal limit of .08 percent. What
do you mean, just a bit? .06 is
25 percent below the state's
limit where they think you
might have impaired driving. It
leads people to believe that he
was almost drunk or some-
thing. That's just not fair to
him. He's definitely not drunk.
Nice people
I was in Winn-Dixi6 a couple of
weeks ago. At the checkout,
there was a nice man behind me
with only three items, so I asked
if he would like to go in front of
me..He told me, "You are a nice
lady." So when he checked out,
he tried to give me $20. I would-
n't take it, so he gave it to the
lady that was ringing me up my
groceries. He did this because I
was so nice. There is a lot of
wonderful people out there.
Anger management
I'd like to respond to the
item in the Sound Off, some-
one asking for help with anger
management. It was in the
Sunday, Nov. 11, edition. I'd
like to recommend Gulf To
Lake Church on (State Road)
44 in Crystal River. They have
wonderful programs for people
who suffer from anger manage-
ment, as well as other prob-
lems. I can't think of a better
place. It's made up of your
peers and instructors who are
professionally trained. I think
you will find this is a great help
and can assist you with your
anger-management problem.
They do a wonderful job. God
bless you.

Short light
Somebody in Crystal River
has to contact the Division of
Transportation. The south-
bound lane in front of the
Sweetbay and Fort Island Trail,
that turn lane, that light is only
on for about four seconds, five
seconds. It allows three cars to
get through. And with the
snowbirds coming down now,
it's almost impossible to clear
that lane out (for people) mak-
ing a left turn into the shop-
ping area. I believe it should be
left on for quite a while longer
so they can clear up all the
people wanting to make a left-
hand turn. I sat there for three
light (changes).
Seeking ethanol
It seems we look at the
Chronicle for all the answers,
and usually they're there. But
now we have a good question
for you: Where can we buy


ethanol for our cars?
The dealers are selling
these bio-fuel cars at
a pretty good rate, but
where do we get the
ethanol for them?
Please, Chronicle, tell
us where it is.
Sex offenders
There are sex
offenders who have


CAeLL
563.0579


paid their debts, and
there are sex offend-
ers and predators out there
getting away with dangerous
crimes and offenses. The sex
offenders whohave a family and
achieved a goal at a better life
are the ones you and everyone
else should be less concerned
about and find a way to help
these harmless people that
made a difference in their lives.
I believe there is a difference
between a murderer-pedophile
and a young teenager who
made a horrible mistake in the


past and regrets ever
doing it. So I am ask-
ing, please let certain
sex offenders make a
change in their lives,
and the dangerous
sex predators, mur-
derers, pedophiles,
serve their time
behind bars. Don't
punish everyone.
Punish those who
need to be punished.


Chair caning
Is there anybody in Citrus
County who knows anything
about caning? I have a friend
who needs a chair caned and I
don't know whether there's any-
body who does that anymore,
but I would be happy to hear if
anybody does. Would they call
in their name or something?
Editor's note: An antique dealer
possibly would know of a chair-
caner. This skill frequently is
demonstrated at historic festivals.

Hazardous waste
Something should be done
about all the hazardous waste
barrels behind Wal-Mart.
They're so rusted that all the
hazardous waste could actually
come out. There should be
something done about that
because it's a hazard. It's haz-
ardous waste and it's just sit-
ting out there and the barrels
are rusting.
Ocala drivers
Does anyone know what hap-
pened to Ocala up there? These
people are insane up there.
They're driving like they're on
methamphetamine d ugs .
They're just racing through
stop signs. They're coming n
your back and they 're rc a
you. It's terrible.
Impact question
Somebody from Sound Off
inquired about what impact


fees were id what they did.
Under the 'itor's note, you
explained ,,-,at exactly it was
and I'd like to read the first
sentence: "An impact fee is a
fee assessed on the construc-
tion of new buildings within a
jurisdiction." So that's a very
good explanation and I agree
with that. Then why do they
have impact fees on something
that is already existing, for
somebody who wants to put a
new business in a used build-
ing?
Movie language
Dr. William (Dixon's) article
today, Nov. 11, "Society's val-
ues change before collapse,"
is so very true. The movies
and TV programs were the
start of decline when Eddie
Murphy made the movie where
's a cop in New York and
vet / other word was "F" this
-1 "F" that. We watched and
i .gh 's he made millions


on it, which the lower classes
copied everything. The parents
need to condemn such movies
and not go to them and
instead stay at home and play
cards or games with your own
children. Sending them to the
movies is saying, "Get out of
my way," instead of teaching
them manners at home at the
table and learning, as some of
the upper classes are smart
enough to teach their children
instead of letting them teach
you to downgrade your own
children.
Improvement tax
I have a great idea: Let's
impose a "tax" on everyone in
Citrus County who wants to
improve their business, remod-
el or expand their business,
and everyone -else who wants
to build in Citrus County. That
ought to keep a lot of people
out of here. Then, let's call it
an impact fee.

Holding out in Vietnam
The leader of the North
Vietnam army wrote in a book
after the war how after the
1968 Tet Offensive, that they
actually were considering sur-
render and giving up because
we had defeated them so
soundly. But after watching
congressmen and senators on
the House floor condemn the
war and seeing the protests,
they decided to hang on and
see if the Americans would
quit ... Bill Clinton's war in
Bosnia was that just to
make the manufacturers of
weapons richer? Probably so ...
Lowered status
I realize there is no perfect
place to live, but Citrus County
is reaching the bottom of the
list, in my opinion. The reason
being our county commission-
ers that we have elected, the


poor decisions they've made,
the tens of thousands of dol-
lars they waste in consultant
fees, our building department
and why they will not audit the
building department to see
what is wrong with it, the
impact fees, the local taxes.
And now for me to move out -
I've only been here for 28 years
and I know it's not a very long
time but for me to move out
I'm going to have to pay anoth-
er impact fee just to sell prop-
erty.
Stop imports
China. What's next, Mr.
President? You should put a
stop to anything coming from
China right now. If you look
back, it's toothpaste, dog food,
toys the latest one with a
date rape drug in it. When are
you going to wake up that
they're trying to hurt us? Stop


all imports of China.
It's than man again
Again, you print a column by
an old man who is trying to
tell the rest of us population
how to live. He was in the
army. He seems to think he
knows it all. He's calling peo-
ple lower class if they don't
listen to him and do exactly as
he says, like how to dress. He
says there is vulgarity, igno-
rance, substance abuse,
immorality and promiscuity.
This is him just telling other
humans how to they're sup-
posed to live, in his view. Then
he laments the 1960s
destroyed that consensus.
Right. We do reject poverty
and war and we support fair-
ness and diversity. I'm from
the '60s, though I was born in
the late '40s. So I'm not a
young man.


Flight benefits
Who benefits from longer
runways? Obviously, the present
users with safer operation of
small jets and business twin-
engine planes that now use the
airport. But how about the fuel
suppliers, restaurants, taxi
operators, hotels, rental cars,
technicians who service our
existing and future companies,
construction workers for the
new power plants, the residents
who travel for business, and
residents who use their own air-
planes to serve their existing
customers and generate new
customers around the state
and further, and dozens of resi-
dents who work for the compa-
nies but do not fly themselves?
Weird residents
I've been living in Citrus
County for 15 years and there
isn't a day that doesn't go by
with someone acting funny


down here, like staring at you
like you had 10 heads or just
acting weird in their behavior.
Hard to see
I hope somebody from Bright
House Channel 63, the weather
station, can see this and read
it. Your new programming is
very nice, but it's so light that
we who can hardly see can't
see it at all. It's very difficult.
Please make it a little darker.
Dirty little town
Inverness is having a problem
with redevelopment. You don't
need to redevelop Inverness.
What you need is somebody to
come out and clean the place. I
mean, get the workers out of
the offices and clean the signs
on the roads that you can't even
read because of mildew. Have
the men come out, or some-
body else, with these big sweep-
ers and clean the roads instead
of just having some contraption


we VI" OW


move the dirt from side to side.
And for Pete's sake, get the 'I
roads repaired when they are so'
full of holes. There's many ,?
things a little hard work could d
do for Inverness that would
make you proud. But when you',
go through it, it's just a dirty lit-T
tie town. i
Trusty labor
To the person complaining u
about trustys washing official, .
police cars: The word "trusty"
means they can be trusted or -
they go back inside to the jail., -;-
My son, of whom I'm very
proud, instigated the trusty -:3
system in Michigan and saved a
their county $50,000 a year.byo
having trustys doing the non- r
profit jobs for the county. I did i
give the sheriff's office info 10. j
years or so ago, or more, on -
how to implement that system if
that my son had started, who ,i
is always helping young folks ir,.

Homeless veterans
I'm a disabled veteran and
the parade yesterday should
have been honoring the home-
less veterans. They're the real
heroes ... Look at the ones in
wheelchairs out in the woods.
They're the heroes. They
should be the ones honored in
a parade.
War does nothing
Why do people write all these
letters about the war and the
veterans and going on? Why
don't they just get the point
that war never gets it. War
does nothing but destroy every-
thing, everybody connected
with it. By now, people any-
where in the world should rec-
ognize that war doesn't get
anything done. Don't go to war
ever. If you see somebody corn-
ing down your street with a gun
that's about to hurt you, then
you can go out and do whatev-


er you want to him to stop
him. But you don't go to war in
another country. Stay out of it.
Gun in glove box
I'm calling in reference.to
Sheriff Dawsy's office. He
should take some of this
money from the Citrus County
taxpayers and educate his
deputies in the laws of this
state. Apparently, one of the
deputies told someone that it
was illegal for him to carry a
pistol in his glove compart-
ment in his vehicle. This is not
true. The state law states that
you are able to do that as long
as you're not a convicted felon.
If you are qualified to purchase
a gun, you have every right to
carry it in your glove compart-
ment of your vehicle. It's time
that these deputies got instruc-
tion about the law, because
they're scamming us taxpayers
of this county when they say
things that are not true.

Making needs known
In Charlie Brennan's "Shades .
of Gray" column, he talks about
headlines that are deceiving.
Today's paper says: "Public -
must make needs known for the
parkway." There's not cne thing
that says anything about the A
public being able to protest their'
dissatisfaction of the parkway -
coming through. This is a ccm- i
plete deception of the public
information. Isn't it deceiving
and ridiculous that the Chrornicrle
can put such a headline and no.
turn around and put ar,.hinrg -
near about it? Everybody does
not have a computer so they can
turn around and complain on A
their computer.
Editor's notes ,
I love to read the editor's
notes in Sound Off. I wish he'd
write more. So keep writing,
editor.

CIThUS Courvn' (FL) CHRONICLE COMMENTARy SUNDAY NOVEMBER 18, 2007 7C


Remark overheard
To the man parked next to me
Saturday, Nov. 10, in front of Big Lots
afonverness: I heard the remark you
nrade, as well as the lady parked next
tohfie, in regards to my disability. She
Paid you must be having a bad day. I
hopo that was it because if that is
your natural attitude, when you leave
thi-Earth there will be a hot fire wait-
ing for you. Have a good day
Real heroes
I'm calling in regards to the article
in the Chronicle today,
'Teen receives hero's wel- S o
come." What are we consid-
ering a hero nowadays? This
nan was sent to prison for
having oral sex with an
underage girl, and now
:o.ey're welcoming him
obe as a hero because he
6,at the case. Then what
di.e that make our sol- CALL
Jiers, our firemen and our
frticemen who died doing 5JUU
their job?
Slippery, not stupid
The Tampa Bay newspapers had the
results of a poll of a coalition of news
services that showed clearly that the
homeowners were more concerned
about homeowners' insurance than
property taxes. This is no surprise.
The state government is fully aware of
this fact. They're slippery, not stupid.
They are trying to keep the focus on
the issue of taxes to avoid the fact
that- they've done next to nothing
about the crisis in homeowners insur-
ance. They caused the problem by giv-
ing insurance giants carte blanche to
raise rates through the ceiling or can-
cel property policies at will. Until
Florida gets smart and exerts pres-
sure on these companies, nothing will
change. The insurance companies will
have to be told that if they want the
life, health, auto and other insurance
business, then they will have to cover
homes, as well, at a fair rate. If they
threaten to pull out of Florida, it is
just a bluff. They are not going to pull


,I


out of the third-largest population in
the United States. It's about time we
called their bluff or elect new officials
in Tallahassee.
Hard to fight
I've been reading your paper this
morning and I'd like to agree with
most people calling in to express their
opinion about the commissioners we
have. I'd like to also remind people
that they need to remember the politi-
cians in Tallahassee that gave the
board of commissioners and the tax
adjuster's office the right to
Essay that they are absolutely
correct on everything that
they charge and make it so
difficult for you that you can
S hardly ever fight them and
win...
Part D plans
This is regarding
Medicare Part D prescrip-
D tion drugs. First off, the gov-
0579 ernment blackmailed us
into joining this plan with a
penalty for every year that
you didn't sign up for it. So the first
year I joined. When it came time to
renew for the second year, the com-
pany I signed up with lowered its cov-
erage and raised its rates 50 per-
cent, so I signed up with a different
company. Now that it is time to sign
up again, -the company I signed up
with has raised its rates 33 percent. I
hope the politicians who forced this
plan on us are watching this, but
probably they are too busy looking
for their cut. The people who are
benefiting from Part D the most are
the politicians, the drug companies
and the insurance companies, not
the average person.
Pay impact fee
I'm constantly reading in Sound Off
about numerous people complaining
about impact fees for businesses
coming here and so forth. Have they
ever stopped to wonder that if a busi-
ness really wanted to help the com-
munity, they would pay the impact
fees, which is only a tax write-off, and

still implement their business to help
the community to bring in jobs and
so forth, like Wal-Mart does.
Apparently ... all these other entities
don't want our business and they
don't' care about Citrus County
because they don't want to pay the
fees. But if they really cared about
the community, they would pay those
impact fees because it's only a tax
write-off.
Building permit rules
In September, Citrus County issued
a building permit for a pre-manufac-
tured home in Citrus Springs even
though the builder's plans were
rejected by the deed-restricted com-
munity. The builder was fully aware
that the community rejected his
plans. However, he built the pre-man-
ufactured home anyway. Current
building permit rules don't require


deed-restricted community approval
of the building plans. Citrus County
needs to change building permit rules
to require community approval for
any building permit request that is
within a deed-restricted community.
These changes will help prevent hap-
hazard housing development in Citrus
County.
Phone in ear
Hey, I'm calling about all these peo-
ple that got these telephones, the lit-
tle telephones stuck in their ear. I just
wanted to let them know that not only
do you look stupid, but you ain't that
important and if somebody really
needed you, they'd find you. So take it
out of your ear and if you need to put
something in there, let it be a Q-tip.
But you really look stupid and like you
ain't that really important, so give it
up.


Snake opinions
It's almost funny to read all the
comments in the paper about snakes
and whether snakes should be
allowed to live or die, and somebody
made the comment that any good
snake is a dead snake. It just goes to
show you why we're in the state we
are in this county in terms of the
environmental protection and the
attitude of people who try to pre-
serve our community when you've
got ignoramuses like that making
comments like that. It's obvious that
nobody cares. They would just as
soon, probably, live in a sterile room
with no windows. Then, therefore,
they couldn't blame the sun for hurt-
ing them or the moon for bothering
them or anything. People need to
wake up and get out and learn a little
bit.

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT

TO BE VOTED ON JANUARY 29, 2008

NOTICE OF ELECTION

I, Kurt S. Browning, Secretary of State of the State of Florida, do hereby give notice that an election will be held in each county in Florida, on January 29, 2008, for the ratification or rejection of a proposed revision to the constitution of
the State of Florida.
No. 1
CONSTITUTIONAL REVISION
ARTICLE VII, SECTIONS 3, 4, AND 6
ARTICLE XII, SECTION 27
(Legislative)

Ballot Title:
PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTIONS; LIMITATIONS ON PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENTS

Ballot Summary:
This revision proposes changes to the State Constitution relating to property taxation. With respect to homestead property, this revision: (1) increases the homestead exemption except for school district taxes and (2) allows
homestead property owners to transfer up to $500,000 of their Save-Our-Homes benefits to their next homestead. With respect to nonhomestead property, this revision (3) provides a $25,000 exemption for tangible personal property
and (4) limits assessment increases for specified nonhomestead real property except for school district taxes.

In more detail, this revision:
(1) Increases the homestead exemption by exempting the assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000. This exemption does not apply to school district taxes.
(2) Provides for the transfer of accumulated Save-Our-Homes benefits. Homestead property owners will be able to transfer their Save-Our-Homes benefit to a new homestead within 1 year and not more than 2 years
after relinquishing their previous homestead; except, if this revision is approved by the electors in January of 2008 and if the new homestead is established on January 1, 2008, the previous homestead must have been
relinquished in 2007. If the new homestead has a higher just value than the previous one, the accumulated benefit can be transferred; if the new homestead has a lower just value, the amount of benefit transferred will be
reduced. The transferred benefit may not exceed $500,000. This provision applies to all taxes.
(3) Authorizes an exemption from property taxes of $25,000 of assessed value of tangible personal property. This provision applies to all taxes.
(4) Limits the assessment increases for specified nonhomestead real property to 10 percent each year. Property will be assessed at just value following an improvement, as defined by general law, and may be assessed
at just value following a change of ownership or control if provided by general law. This limitation does not apply to school district taxes. This limitation is repealed effective January 1, 2019, unless renewed by a vote of
the electors in the general election held in 2018.

Further, this revision:
a. Repeals obsolete language on the homestead exemption when it was less than $25,000 and did not apply uniformly to property taxes levied by all local governments.
b. Provides for homestead exemptions to be repealed if a future constitutional amendment provides for assessment of homesteads "at less than just value" rather than as currently provided "at a specified percentage" of
just value.
c. Schedules the changes to take effect upon approval by the electors and operate retroactively to January 1, 2008, if approved in a special election held on January 29, 2008, or to take effect January 1, 2009, if
approved in the general election held in November of 2008. The limitation on annual assessment increases for specified real property shall first apply to the 2009 tax roll if this revision is approved in a special election held
on January 29, 2008, or shall first apply to the 2010 tax roll if this revision is approved in the general election held in November of 2008:

David Larson was never one to
shy away from making difficult
decisions or pursuing strate-
gies considered unconvention-

within the energy industry
That brand of leadership
was commemorated Sept 10,
when Wright-Hennepin
Cooperative Electric
Association (WH) named its
headquarters in Rockford,
Minn., the "David P Larson
Energy Center." Larson, who
resides in Citrus Springs, was
WH's general manager from
1979 to 1996. He was instru-
mental in getting the Rockford
facility built and open for busi-
ness in 1994.
WH is member-owned and
provides electric power to
Wright County and the western

this area since 1937 and cur-

they needed, in one site, about
Citrus County. We wanted to
not only reach those future
tourists looking to make our
community their vacation hot
spot, but also future residents,
business owners looking to
expand to our area, guests
looking for specific services
that our businesses offer, but
also develop a site that was
beneficial to our Chamber
members.
What are some of the fea-
tures the new site has to offer?
Business Spotlight
Weather
Business resources


Chamber member busi-
ness directory
Map features
Important links
Calendar of Chamber
events
Photo gallery
A forum to communicate
with other members
Random cycling ad spaces
Poll/Survey questions

general county information
Manatee and Strawberry
Festival as well as Christmas

The ability to pay your
dues and join the Chamber
online.
With over 26,000 page views
a month, the Chamber website
has become a vital tool in pro-
moting Citrus County and
Chamber members. If you have
not visited our website in a
while, the time has never been
better. Take a look around and

Wiser to move
to Bright House
ST. PETERSBURG Bay
News 9 General Manager Elliott
- Wiser is leaving his position with
the 24-hour local news channel to
assume full-time duties as the
Group Vice President of Local
Programming for Bright House
Networks.
Wiser has served in both roles
for three years, but today's
IS announcement signals Bright
House Network's reorganization of
its local programming unit. The
company's local news channels
Bay News 9 and Orlando's Central
- Florida News 13, on-demand chan-
nels, local web sites, and sports


channel Catch 47 all will report
directly to Wiser.
"Elliott has demonstrated an abil-
ity to create and grow our local
news ventures into award-winning
channels that provide a valuable
service to our customers and com-
munities," said
Florida Group w we.
President John 7
Rigsby. We are i
pleased at the
success of our
local program- -
ming initiatives .
and excited
about the oppor- wsear
tunities they pro-
vide."
Elliott Wiser has been general
manager at Bay News 9 since the
channel launched in September
1997. He presently is the longest
tenured General Manager in the
Tampa television market. Wiser is
responsible for creating the coun-
try's first 24-hour local news chan-
nel in Spanish-Bay News 9 en
espanol. He was instrumental in
creating and developing Bay News
9's popular web site and as well as
the on-demand entertainment
channel Tampa Bay on Demand.
Under Wiser, Bay News 9 won
more than three dozen awards and
was recently named the most
watched local news channel in
America by The Media Audit.
"I sincerely appreciate the sup-
port Bright House Networks has
given to our local programming
efforts, and in particular Bay News
9", said Wiser, "but after 10 years I
.am ready for the next challenge."
Bright House Networks is the


nation's sixth-largest MSO with 2.4
million customers in several large
markets including Bakersfield,
Calif.; Birmingham, Ala.; Detroit,
Mich.; Indianapolis, Ind.; Orlando
(Central Florida Division) and
Tampa Bay, along with several
other smaller systems in Alabama
and the Florida Panhandle. The
high-growth Tampa/Central Florida
markets are contiguous and form
one of the country's largest cable
clusters.
Bright House Networks also
owns and operates two 24-hour
local news operations; Central
Florida News 13, News 13
Weather NOW, Central Florida on

Loan officer
awarded contract
Shields Gay, a 22-year Citrus
County resident, was awarded a
mortgage loan
officer contract
from a nation-
wide correspon-
dent lender. Gay
now has access
to shop over 20
banks to ensure
customers get A
the best mort- Shields
gage possible. Gay
He uses an in-
house escrow department to
ensure better control over each
closing and funding functions of the
loan process.

BUILDING
Continued from Page ID

about 15 minutes outside of
Minneapolis. Having dual
facilities was costly and less
efficient because of redun-
dant equipment and spread
out personnel. Additionally,
the cooperative's headquar-
ters at Maple Lake was land-
locked and couldn't accommo-
date for the current and
future growth WH was experi-
encing.
Larson strongly backed
moving headquarters to
Rockford for those reasons
even though he knew the idea
of moving east was controver-
sial for some members.
However, he felt the move was
necessary for future growth
and for making sure member
needs would be met in the
future.
"Having worked with Dave


for many years, I know how
passionate he was about serv-
ing WH members and how dif-
ficult the decision to be made
was," said Mark Vogt, current
WH president and CEO. "But
Dave knew it was the right
thing to do and pushed for the
change. It was fitting to name
the building after him, which
he helped make a reality."
Another example of being
Larson's work is the creation
of the Operation Round Up
program during his final
years as general manager.
This program, where mem-
bers voluntarily round their
electric bill to the next near-
est dollar, has donated more
than 1.8 million to local wor-
thy causes since 1994.
"Dave not only cared deeply
about the co-op's employees
and members; he also went to
great lengths to make sure the
surrounding communities
benefited from WH's pres-
ence as well," Vogt said.
