New government buildings would push debt capacity to the limit
Mike Wright mwright@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
Citrus County commissioners may be divided on where to expand government offices, but they agree one question must be answered first:
What can we afford?
With numbers tossed around
last week in the $26 million to $30 million range for new offices in Inverness, commissioners turned to Cathy Taylor to see if any of that was even possible.
Taylor is director of the Office of Budget and Finance. She said that if the county were to finance a $25 million expansion and combine that with the
$14 million emergency operations center project on a 30-year loan then, yes, it's doable.
But it would also dry up the county's main source of bond revenue for building projects.
Commissioner Gary Bartell said that bothers him.
"I don't want to draw our bond capacity out to zero," he said.
The county borrows money for most of its big-ticket projects and uses a variety of sources to pay it back, depending on the project.
Gasoline taxes fund road
projects. Special assessments pay for paving streets or extending water lines. Sewer connections pay for new sewer plants.
If the project merits, impact fees are normally combined with the general fund to make loan payments.
The county uses sales tax revenue to pledge most of its larger building projects. The sales tax is collected by the state of Florida, and then returned to Citrus County based on a complicated formula that focuses on popu-

Manatees remain an endangered species under Florida law, but that could change this week.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission will meet in Key Largo Wednesday to consider down-listing manatees from endangered to threatened.
Agency biologists say their studies show manatees have recovered to such an extent they can be removed from the endangered list without jeopardizing their survival.
But the Save the Manatee
Club is fighting the move, say-ing the change in the status is being driven by those who believe the manatee is nothing more than a speed bump standing in the way of rapid coastal development.
Most of the communications between club officials and FWC commission members has been done one-on-one privately. The club has also shown its appreciation for Gov. Charlie Crist's opposition to downlisting manatees, according to Patrick Rose, executive director of the Save the Manatee Club.
Rose fired a final salvo on Nov. 20 when he released an opinion column to newspapers noting the respected World Conservation Union (ICUN) declared the Florida manatee endangered on Sept. 12, using

The county collects about $7.4 million a year in sales tax, Taylor said. About 30 percent cannot be used directly as a pledge for loan repayments, she said, and instead is set aside for other programs or as an emergency source to repay loans if sales tax revenue suddenly dips below the required payment amounts.
That leaves $5.2 million. About $2.5 million is used annually to repay debt on six

Senator says plan good for some

State Sen. Charlie Dean has some pointed advice for people wanting to know if they should vote for the tax-cut package on the Jan. 29 ballot:
"If it feels good for you, vote for this' I program. If it doesn't feel good, don't vote for it"
Dean, R-Inverness, addressed an audience of about 80 Thursday night at the Beverly Hills Civic Association meeting.
Dean voted for placing the four-part tax cut proposal on the ballot, but he said it doesn't do enough to relieve the tax burden of non-homestead property owners.
"For the non-homesteaded property owner, those folks are paying everything," he said. "These people are totally vulnerable."
The amendment, which would double the $25,000 homestead exemption and allow "portability" of the Save Our Homes savings, would cost local government millions of dollars in lost revenue.
Dean said the cuts would cost Citrus County government $65 million over five years and the school district $19 million over five years.
Dean said it's his impression that the governments can take the hit because Floridians want tax relief.
"I'm a taxpayer like you. I've had enough," he said. "The growth of government needs to stop. We can't pay anymore."
Citrus County Commissioner Vicki Phillips, who introduced
Please see DEAN/Page 5A
TAX PLAN
The plan on the ballot includes the following components:
Double the $25,000 homestead exemption to $50,000. The higher exemption does not apply to schools' taxes.
Allow homeowners to shift their Save Our Homes savings when buying a new home.
Caps annual property assessment increases on non-homestead properties at 10 percent. The cap does not apply to school taxes.
Creates a $25,000 exemption on tangible personal property tax.

building projects, including the courthouse expansion and Lecanto Detention Facility.
Another $1.1 million is paying a one-year note on the Emergency Operations Center Taylor said the county plans to borrow next year for the full amount of $14 million, though the principal may be lower than that because of potential grants that may come in.
Taylor said she expects the annual payments on the new EOC loan to be about $1 million as it is now.
The county also pledged sales tax revenue for the $3.75 million countywide emergency radio system. This year's payment is $447,352.
Taylor said even though the sales tax secures the loan, impact fees and general fund revenue contribute the payments. Still, the annual payment
is counted against the available sales tax revenue for new projects.
That means the county is already pledging about $4.2 million of its $5.6 million in sales tax.
A project in the $25 million range, which is what commissioners are considering for office expansions, would create an annual payment that pushes the available sales tax revenue to the edge.
Commissioner Dennis Damato said the commission might need to build offices in stages to allow other outstanding debts to mature which, in turn, would free up more available money for loans.
In 2011, the county will make its final payment on the $5.5 million loan for the Lecanto jail, freeing up about $650,000 annually for new debt
"We could still do it in a piecemeal fashion," Damato said. "To not do anything is not in the best interest of the taxpayers."

tdean to the audience thursday 'jaight, said friday that she knows people want tax relief but that will come at a cost.
phillips said she has seen estimates of a first-year loss of $8.6 million and up to $12 million the second year. "it progressively goes up," she said. that money is used to fund programs and salaries of such people as pool lifeguards and park workers.
| "these things are real. they affect real people," she said. ('legislators don't see that. people don't go to them. they
come to us."
dean said the constitutional amendment is likely one of the first of several years of proposals aimed at tax reform.
he said the legislature should change the way that property appraisers set taxable value of property. he said value" should be set at the property's true worth, not its potential.
dean said a house in his neighborhood that was built by a man who later died sold for twice what the first man paid for it that drove the property values up for everyone nearby, he said.
"all i need is two more funerals," he said, "and i can't afford to live on my street"

the same criteria fwc is using to justify downgrading them to threatened.
"incongruously, that was the day the florida fish & wildlife conservation commission was scheduled to vote on whether to reclassify the manatee to a lesser state imperiled status a vote that marine industry representatives and go-fast boating interests have supported for many years," rose wrote.
two days before the vote, rose said crist came to the rescue and asked the commission to postpone the vote while also questioning the accuracy of the method used to estimate the size of the manatee population. but the agency is bringing the issue back for a vote wednesday.
kipp frohlich, who heads fwc's imperiled species management program for manatees, said while it is true fwc issed the same criteria as icun to assign manatees to threatened status; he said the outcome was the same. he said manatees will be given the same protections, if not better safeguards, as a threatened species.
"we reached the same conclusions, but we call it different names," he said.
frohlich said he realizes the public attaches great significance to names such as endangered and threatened, but he

said the bottom line is "words are not what protects manatees."
"it's the rules, regulations and management activities that protect the manatees," he said. "we're not taking away anything from manatee protection. we're not taking away protection zones."
rose, who headed fwc's imperiled species protection program until 1996 and hired frohlich when he first came to the agency as a biologist, said frohlich can't say what he really thinks. he said frohlich has to "give the official agency line," which means he can't say the manatees should remain endangered.
rose said fwc in reality has no constitutional authority to protect threatened or endangered marine species. he said the florida legislature has the only real authority to set rules for endangered or threatened marine species.
the save the manatee club is not threatening a lawsuit if fwc's governing board down-lists manatees to threatened, rose said. but he said manatees need their current level of protection. changing their protection status to threatened is almost certain to lower protection levels, regardless of what fwc claims, he said.
and with just 2,500 adult animals left in the wild, rose said there is little margin for error by fwc's calculations, he said manatee populations are expected to decrease by 50 per-
cent in three generations about 45 to 50 years. but rose said those numbers are optimistic.
he said it boating deaths were to double, or there was a sudden outbreak of disease that killed hundreds of the animals, the number of manatees could decline much more rapidly, jeopardizing their future.
rose said most of the talking will have been completed before wednesday's meeting. he said the fwc meeting is being held in key largo, at the far southern tip of florida, ensuring a low turnout of manatee supporters. but he said the club remains optimistic.
"we're putting most of our efforts into talking to commissioners and letting the governor know we appreciate his support," rose said. "when it comes to a vote, we believe the commission will do the right thing."
helen spivey, co-chair of the save the manatee club and the
It's the rules, regulations and management activites that protect the manatees. We're not taking away anything from manatee protection.
Easy Clasp
manatee issue chairwoman for the sierra club of florida, said she is hopeful the fwc commissioners will pay close attention to all the information they have been provided about the hawed rule their staff is using to down-list manatees.
spivey said the hawed species listing rule being used by fwc could pose problems for other endangered species in florida. she said the florida panther may have problems meeting the criteria for endangered under fwc's new system.
but spivey said the national sierra club's marine committee sent the governor a letter urging him to support the endangered listing for manatees. the letter invoked the full support of the sierra club's 1 million members nationwide.
"i've got my eyes crossed, my fingers crossed and my toes crossed," spivey said. "i'm certainly hoping the commission will do the right thing."

tracked him down to Citrus County, where he and his wife Lillian had retired in 1999.
Wilson, 85, said it took about a year, but the dynamic owner of the company, Stanford Phelps, finally talked him into it Wilson is the president of Integrated Alligator Industries and Black Diamond. He said Integrated Alligator Industries is breeding alligators at the Alligator Ranch, a gator farm in Polk County, and raising them in Georgia. It will turn the harvested animals' hides into high-end luggage, pocketbooks, attache cases and other expensive leather specialty products at the $14 million Lecanto facility.
The plant will be located on Crigger Court, a small industrial area off County Road 491 just south of the Educational Path traffic light. The building is already up and the equipment is expected to begin arriving after Christmas. The plant could be open in February, Wilson said.
The plant will hire about 20 people initially and ultimately as many as 80, according to Economic Development Council (EDO Executive Director Randy Welker, who added that the project had been one that EDC president Jack Reynolds had worked particularly hard for a year and a half. "It was quite a complex process," Welker said. Reynolds was on vacation and unavailable for comment
Wilson said putting the project together involves not only knowing how to put a gator tanning and manufacturing facility up, but also knowing the small cadre of knowledgeable people in the industry from around the world, as well as the latest state-of-the-art equipment specific to alligator tanning and who can provide it That's not to mention
contacts in companies like Ralph Lauren, which will be giving the company design contracts.
"I've been in the business 62 years," said Wilson, adding, "I was really retired."
He had gotten into the mills and textile industry after World War II. He had been a P-51 fighter pilot and returned to New England after the war. He got into the leather tanning industry and began the long career that took him around the World, from Singapore to the jungles of South America to Europe.
He had eight tanneries through the years, one in Tarpon Springs. It would be an understatement to say he knows the business, and that's why Phelps sought him out, he said.
Phelps said in a brief phone interview that the company was very lucky to have Wilson and excited to be bringing the facility to Citrus County.
Wilson said the process has taken about two years a year and a half working with county and EDC staff. One of the paramount concerns, he said, was to design a system in which there was no chance of a chemical getting into the environment and that the waste water leaving the plant had nothing in it that would adversely affect the environment or the county sewer system.
Tannery business has gone high tech
He said that tanneries are not what they used to be and the old conception of the stinking tannery and its pollution are a thing of the past The tannery that will go into Lecanto will be a state-of-the-art, computer-controlled'plant in which solid and liquid wastes are controlled, he said.
Any of the chemicals used are closely controlled, he said, and the chromium used, for example, is recovered. That makes

sense financially, too, Wilson said, because the chromium salt used is very expensive.
The plant was designed so that there are three different stainless processing tanks for liquid and solid wastes at the back of the facility imbedded 16-feet deep through an expansive 3-foot-thick slab. That slab has 3-foot-high walls so that if there was ever a spill from the tanks, Wilson said, none would get out.
"There is no way anything could out of here not even in a hurricane," he said. "It was expensive, but we did it."
After the wastewater is processed, it is not put into the sewer system but stored in a big tank buried alongside the plant building. The plant will have a state licensed Level III waste water technician. Recovered wastes that can't be reused will be trucked out to a federal depository, he said.
The water has to be manually released into the sewer system, and so is always controlled, Wilson said. The plant tests the water before release and regularly sends samples to the county. County Water Resource officials have the right to test it before release and can show up at any time to check the water quality.
"We've got overkill everywhere," Wilson said. "We put in every safeguard we could think of."
Wilson said the county officials worked closely with him first to find the right location and then to create a system with which the county was comfortable.
He said he worked closely with the county Water Resources department and its director Robert Knight Knight said when the county staff had objections or suggestions that not only did the company agree, but often came back
with even better solutions than recommended. The county commission recently signed off on the agreement with the company.
Wilson particularly noted EDC chairman Jack Reynolds and county Development Services Director Gary Maidhof as helping make the project possible in the county. He also noted that in bringing the sewer and water lines from C.R. 491, the company has opened new opportunities for the whole industrial park.
Welker echoed that, saying it will make the location more attractive and feasible for other new businesses and it couldn't hurt to have representatives from exclusive designer companies having contracts in Citrus.
Wilson said the plant will bring in four extremely experienced and highly skilled individuals to oversee the major elements of tanning and manufacturing, but that the remainder of the employees will be from Citrus County. He said the idea is to hire and train local people who want to learn a unique and exclusive businesses for a career. He said the plant would proceed slowly bringing on five or six at a time and training them.
Wilson said the positions will be highly skilled and high-paying jobs, and he believes that if the local schools and college can't provide the employees, then they might as well be shut down in other words, he said, chuckling, he knows there is local talent with an interest in staying in Citrus County that can be hired for lucrative careers.
He said he believes that in the long run having most employees with roots and a local interest in the community will make for a better operation than hiring experienced people from without

Chilean cities worth the passage ?
^ ar away places with W strange sounding JL names" used to ring in my head like a siren's song. Going there and experiencing the unique destinations of Valparaiso and Vina del Mar has cleared my brain of this haunting song. The realization has left pleasant and indelible memories, but these two cities have no resemblance to my earlier mental image.
On the coast of Chile, they are unique and picturesque cities nestled on hillsides overlooking the Pacific Ocean. They grew from fishing villages into large cities as more and more tourists, primarily from Europe, spent their holidays there. What were originally two villages grew into one, yet they retain separate identities.
During an interesting hour-and-a-half drive from Santiago, one travels through beautiful vineyards and orchards of

apples, avocados and almonds to reach these sea-side escapes. They are invisible until you top the coastal mountain range when Vina del Mar suddenly pops into view. The approach to a new place seems to cast me in the role of a wide-eyed tourist on his first trip out of the subdivision. Just "looking" is the order of the day in these beautiful places, as the dream unfolds.
Vina del Mar (Vineyard by the Sea) is a resort-style city. It was established in 1874 when it served as a weekend retreat for the wealthy elite of Santiago and is still very popular today as many Santiaguinos have vacation homes there. It is surprisingly cosmopolitan with good shopping, entertainment, upscale hotels and nice beaches.
The "working" city of Valparaiso, built on 46 hills, is just a few minutes to the south and looms into view as one

Colorful houses cover the hillsides, occupying every inch of space down to the business district of narrow city streets. Getting around town or down from one's hillside home frequently involves the use of one of 15 ascensores (funiculars).
Because of its favorable location and protective geography, Valparaiso has long served as the major seaport on the Chilean coast. As early as the mid-1800s, more than 100 ships per day docked there.

a Cmdr. Martin P. Murphy and The Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Chapter 70, in coordination with the Superintendent "Sam" Himmel of the Citrus County School District, have become an official Cell Phone for Soldiers Drop-Off Site. This program was started by two teenagers to help buy pre-paid calling cards to send to our service people overseas.

It is a great program, and we would really appreciate the community's involvement.
The program will accept any make or model phone. You may drop off phones and attached batteries as well as accessories at any Citrus County School or the DAV at North Independence Highway and U.S. 41 North.

to Inverness Middle School and its National Junior Honor Society, for help in coordinating their first annual canned food drive to support the local hungry and homeless veterans and their families in Citrus County. We would also like to thank the community for their generosity in making this food drive a huge success. Several schools in the district participated and we could not have done it without their support. Our estimation is that more than 1,000 pounds of canned goods were collected this year and ail of our families that needed food for Thanksgiving were provided with groceries. We hope to be able to make this a recurring event. We were very impressed with tha enthusiasm of the National Junior Honor Society Members, our future leaders, and their willingness to help those in need.

V
ef'ore Christmas rolls around, you'll probably read 50 different recipes for making the "perfect turkey" in newspapers and magazines. You'll see another 50 on the morning TV shows and on the cooking channels. Between Thanksgivings and Christmases. I've eaten well over 100 turkey dinners in my life. Not once have I ever heard a guest stand up and say. "That was horrible. That wasn't a perfect turkey. How dare you cook something like that. I'll never eat here again!" As a matter of fact, that's iVIU! probably why turkey has become so popular for the holidays: It's hard to mess up. Even imperfect turkeys taste pretty good. Besides, when did perfection become the goal instead of having a good time, instead of enjoying your company?
My Dad used to get up on a rickety ladder and spend a few hours each year putting up a simple string of colored lights on our front porch every Christmas. The bulbs were bulky and ugly compared to the kind you can buy today, and if one light on the string went out, they all went out. It was a tedious all-day affair to find out which bulb had burned out. After my sixth or seventh sibling showed up, he didn't bother with the outside of the house. Yet all those years, no one ever knocked on our front door and said, "What's with the pathetic light show? You guys aren't even trying. The guy down the street, his are perfect." All the perfect guy's kids were at our house, making a mess, enjoying not being perfect.
Now, when I drive past one of those overdecorated houses with computer coordinated light displays that you can see from outer space, all I can think is, "If they have the time and money to do that, they must not have children." Or not enough of them, anyway.
Our tree was the opposite of the perfect trees you will see in the magazines, yet I don't remember anyone remarking, "Why, that's the ugliest thing I've ever seen. It looks like you let a bunch of little kids decorate it!" It never occurred to us
For years, I thought that adding water to things

erfection
that it wasn't perfect
My mother was big on watering the tree every day. "That way," she explained, "it will live longer." For years, I thought that adding water to things would keep them alive. Dead dog, add water. Dead fish, add water. It was a long time before I realized that cutting down the tree was what killed it, not a lack of water. When they found my grandfather, they never figured out why the carpet around his body was l> so wet.
My grandfather LEN always gave me a
- brand new wallet
each Christmas. I don't know what he thought I needed one for when I was 6. My driver's license? Not the perfect gift, but I remember it still. Mom tried a new recipe one year for fruitcake. She knew no one really liked fruitcake, so she found this recipe that was all dried fruit and nuts and no cake. I don't remember what held it all together, I think she just threw candied fruit and nuts into a bubbling pot of corn syrup and cooked until it fused together, like molten glass. To get a piece small enough to eat, you had to shatter it with a hammer It never stopped us from eating them. They weren't perfect, but no one complained.
Television at Christmas was unwatchable. Choir music instead of cartoons? What adult thought that was a good idea? One channel didn't even want to go to the expense of a choir. It trained a camera on a burning log in a fireplace all day long. Riveting stuff compared to what was on the only other two channels. After nine hours of choir came "An Accordion Christmas" and then "How to Knit a Perry Como Sweater."
Today, my basic cable package has 180 channels. It's not enough, so I pay extra for the movie channels and sports. But there are only three channels I watch with any regularity. It's not perfect, but I may watch the burning log this year. It's on channel 589.

During the past couple of centuries, it has hosted immigrants primarily from Spain, Germany, Italy and France and was the first city in South America to have a daily newspaper and electricity. Each culture serves its people with its own rendition of electrical power and distribution. Four or five sets of overhead wires, owned by as many utility companies, converge on light poles and create a bird's nest effect and is well, a mess but still in use today after a hundred years or so.
Life as we know it stalls every day from 2 to 4 p.m. as the locals
enjoy siesta. Schoolchildren are referred to as "penguins" because of the black and white uniforms they wear A modern, all-glass multi-story building is constructed within the walls of a historic building with beautiful colonnades rising several stories high. Nightlife turns on about midnight (I know nothing of this nightly tradition), and tango is the most popular "sport"
Ride a funicular, or three, and see the city from different vantage points. Valparaiso is a city where one can entertain or be entertained 24 hours a day, and deserves being on your list of a thousand places to see in your lifetime.
These beautiful and enchanting cities are only a dream until you go there.

and only you can determine how it will be spent" Carl Sandberg.

27th annual Chronicle/Pines Tennis
Brown, Tringali win singles crowns

WALT CARLSON /Chronicle
Mike Brown won the singles bracket in the 27th annual Chronicle/Pines tennis tournament on Satuday at Whispering Pines Park in Inverness.
ome of the participants in the 27th annual Chronicle/Pines tournament were not even borh yet when some of the other participants were slugging it out in tennis matches held on the Whispering Pines' beautifully situated tennis courts.
This is one of the nice characteristics of this recurring event; players barely into middle school and 60+ (sometimes 70+!) athletes showing off their skills on the same courts, with the same target in mind: hitting back that ball just one more time. As tJ>Pi 11
exciting as doubles match- -
es can be, singles is still the king or queen of the court, in players' minds.
This tourney is the only one in the county that offers singles divisions and Mike Brown and Kristin Tringali showed that they were worthy of their crowns. Brown made it official by beating his weekly practice partner, Tommy Saltzman, in a closely fought 7-6,6-3 final. Saltzman got the first break in the match but could not hold on to it and the set went into a tiebreaker, in which Brown prevailed 7-3. In the second set Brown rushed to a 4-1 lead, Saltzman fought back to 5-3, before

Today in HISTORY
Today is Sunday, Dec. 2, the 336th day of 2007. There are 29 days left in the year.
Today's Highlight in History:
Fifty years ago, on Dec. 2,1957, the Shippingport Atomic Power Station in Pennsylvania, the first full-scale commercial nuclear facility in the United States, began operations. (The reactor ceased operating in 1982.)
On this date:
In 1804, Napoleon crowned himself emperor of the French.
In 1823, President Monroe outlined his doctrine opposing European expansion in the Western Hemisphere.
In 1859, militant abolitionist John Brown was hanged for his raid on Harper's Ferry the previous October.
In 1942, an artificially created, self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction was demonstrated for the first time, at the University of Chicago.
In 1954, the Senate voted to condemn Wisconsin Republican Joseph R. McCarthy for conduct that lends to bring the Senate into disrepute."
Ten years ago: Attorney General Janet Reno declined to seek an independent counsel investigation of telephone fundraising by President Clinton and Vice President Al Gore, concluding they did not violate election laws, a decision that drew jeers from Republicans.
Five years ago: A statement attributed to al-Qaida claimed responsibility for the car-bombing of an Israeli-owned hotel in Kenya and the attempted shoot-down of an Israeli airliner, both on Nov. 28. The Supreme Court agreed to decide whether minorities could be given a boost to get into universities.
One year ago: Fidel Castro failed to attend a military parade marking the 50th anniversary of the start of the Cuban revolution, fueling speculation he might not return to power.
Today's Birthdays: Country singer John Wesley Ryles is 57. Actor Keith Szarabajka is 55. Actor Dan Butler is 53. Broadcast journalist Stone Phillips is 53. Actor Dennis Christopher is 52. Actor Steven Bauer is 51. Country singer Joe Henry is 47. Rock musician Rick Savage (Def Leppard) is 47. Tennis Hall-of-Famer Tracy Austin is 45. Rock musician Nate Mendel (Foo Fighters) is 39. Actress Lucy Liu is 39. Tennis player Monica Seles is 34. Singer Nelly Furtado is 29. Pop singer Britney Spears is 26.

OUT THE WIN BOW
Reagan could have fixed impact fees
"Taxation with representation ain't so hot either."
Gerald Barzan
The current debate at the county courthouse over impact fee rates and the tax rate is pretty much missing the point.
Some people want high impact fees on new construction so new residents and businesses pay a higher share of the taxes.
Others want to do away or reduce impact fees so barriers aren't in place that stop new homes and businesses from being built. Their argument is that the impact fees damage the local economy and put lots of people out of work.
Some have'even suggested raising the sales tax to replace the impact fee and some property taxes.
Our county commissioners are split on the subject and pointing fingers at each other as they try to get their way.
Well, here's a compromise almost everyone can buy into: How about if local government spends less money?
That's right spend less money and you won't have to pull your hair out over how to raise taxes. Spend less. Tax less.
Ronald Reagan figured that

We may be annoying but we mean well
TT t's understandable if coun-i ty commissioners feel they JL take too many lumps in our editorials. After all, it's rare for a week to go by without the editorial board targeting the commission with blunt questions like, "What are you thinking?" or, "What's the holdup?" or "Why do you waste time and money?"
Those who run for office thinking it's a Cakewalk get a quick lesson from the press and the public that even if they sneeze funny, someone's going to come down on them.
It's not an easy job. It's a big job.
When the nine members of the editorial board sit around on Wednesday mornings and formulate opinions, it's not an orchestrated forum to determine how we'll take shots at the commission. Yeah, that's usually the result, but the ultimate hope is that the collective opinion of the board causes commissioners to consider if they're on the right track or if they should reconsider their positions.
Some may question if a business (the Chronicle) that buys ink by the barrel should be so adamant about poor decisions or lack of decisions on the commission's part when we're basically observers who tend to find fault around every bend.

hen it comes to solving county government's space needs, Citrus County commissioners have given new meaning to baseball great Yogi Berra's famous quote, "This is like deja vu all over again."
For more than a decade, county commissioners have repeatedly revisited the acknowledged need to construct additional space for the county's constitutional and judicial officers despite urgent pleas for relief necessitated by the county's growing population.
The crux of the current space crunch goes back to 1998 when county commissioners voted to think small rather than big. Faced with a burgeoning courthouse, they opted to expand it by 40,000 square feet instead of the estimated 100,000 square feet needed to meet growth projections to 2015.
As expected, the expanded courthouse quickly proved inadequate, forcing the construction of the Citrus County Courthouse Annex that added another 20,000 square feet. Nonetheless, county commissioners have continued to inexplicably delay action to fully meet acknowledged space needs.
As county commissioners have dawdled, other local boards acted decisively to meet the county's growing needs. Central Florida Community College built its Citrus Campus. The Citrus County School Board built several schools. And Citrus Memorial Health Systems completed a huge addition.
While Commissioner Dennis Damato's comprehensive space needs study directed by fellow commissioners has gathered dust for almost two years, the city of Inverness has moved forward with downtown improvements and land acquisition to support a government plaza it proposed to county commissioners in January
THE ISSUE:
Space needs dawdling.
OUR OPINION:
Stop letting the facts get in the way.
1998.
County commissioners initially responded enthusiastically to the proposed government plaza, which incorporated Cooter Pond and a pedestrian mall with existing and future county buildings in the downtown area. The enthusiasm, however, soon reverted to
dawdling that put the brake on city and county efforts to determine what was feasible and how much each would invest to make the proposal a reality.
All of the facts point to downtown Inverness as the location for expansion. The county's constitutional and judicial officers already have their main offices there. The infrastructure and business support structure already exist. The compact downtown area is less costly and more desirable to the alternative of urban sprawl. And it is the least expensive location as affirmed by Citrus County Public Works Director Glenn McCracken's presentation to county commissioners this past week.
Given that downtown Inverness is the most desirable and least expensive location, the city of Inverness has opened the door for the county to make the downtown government plaza a reality. Therefore, it's ironic that Commissioners Vicki Phillips and Joyce Valentino chose to place a decade of indecision and delay at the feet of Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni during this past week's commission meeting.
With the endless dawdling compounding the space needs crunch and cost, county commissioners need to end their interminable indecision at the scheduled Dec. 18 meeting.
Otherwise, County
Commissioner Jim Fowler's May 9, 2001, space needs lament of, "I think we're right back to where we started," will be yet another deja vu all over again.
United Way contributions needed
The United Way of Citrus County needs your help. While most people in the workforce are asked to make a contribution to the annual United Way campaign, more than 50 percent of the residents in our community are retired.
Everyone's help is needed this holiday season to help United Way raise the funds needed for the 23 nonprofit agencies that serve our community. We are asking every household to contribute $20.08 to the effort. If you give more, that's great. But everyone's help is needed.

Please send your contributions, payable to United Way, to:

Treatment needed
Being a long-time member of NAMI. (The National Alliance on Mental Illness) and one who has spent much time reading and studying the subject of "mental illness" does not make me an expert on the subject.
However, through NAMI, we can attend conferences where the experts are, and sit in on lectures given by the experts for professionals earning continuing education credits for attending these lectures, and for non-professionals, as well, such as myself.
Having just come from the NAMI state conference where much of the emphasis was on mental health, children and adolescents, I was troubled by the headline in the Nov. 20 Chronicle, to the effect that doctors are "overprescribing medications and overdiagnosing" where children and mental health issues are concerned.
The predominant message from the conference professionals, all M.D.s with three of them specializing in juveniles, was that first you look to genetics, because this is where "mental illness" begins. After making genetics a prime consideration in diagnosis, then this should weigh heavily in a doctor's ability to decide if "Johnny is just acting out," or if Johnny has a bona fide "mental" condition.
I know of at least three adults who were the "bad" children in their family: trouble-makers, rule-breakers, etc., perhaps hiding or dealing with inner problems with street drugs or alcohol, and not being diagnosed, with, for instance, bipolar disorder, until as adults, they were finally diagnosed correctly and could begin the long process of reclaiming their lives.
These illnesses wreak a terrible toll on children's' self-worth. There are

some fine diagnosticians out there who can head off a lifetime of destructive behavior and bad self-image in a child who did not ask to be born with difficulties of any sort.

Turning second class
Imagine you are a family in Citrus County. You have a wife and two children and your next-door neighbor has a family of four, also.
One day, both families drive to the state park. At the gate, your neighbor pays $4 to get into the park. When you get to the gate, the park ranger says it will cost you $16 to get in.
You do not understand. Your

neighbor's family is the same as yours. The park ranger explains that you are a second-class citizen. You argue, but there is nothing you can do about it
The next day, you and your neighbor take your kids to enroll them in school and a member of the school board says that you must pay four times the amount that your neighbor pays for his children's education. There is nothing you can do, because you are a second-class citizen.
The next day, you and your neighbor receive your property tax bill! Your home is identical to your neighbor's home. The property tax appraiser has set the exact same value to each of your homes. Your tax bill is four times as high as your neighbor's. You call to try to get an explanation and the county representative says there is nothing you can do about it Your neighbor is a first-class citizen. He is homesteaded and you are not You are a second-class citizen. It's the law.
You tell them that you have to pay four times the amount in taxes for the samfe government services as your neighbor, and is this not taxation-without representation? Is this not what our founders fought and died for? You hang up the phone and won der how could this happen.
When did we give the politicians the power to make us second-class citizens? You get angry and you remember the words of one of our founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson, who said. "A government that is^big enough to give you everything you want is strong enough to take everything you have." Then you realize that you still have a vote.

The strange C9J36 of Hannah Montana & Britney
In 188b', author Robert Louis Stevenson ventured outside the swashbuckling genre in which he'd given ;"bhe world classics such as ^'Treasure Island" and 'Kidnapped" and wrote a nightmare-inspired, horror-infused tale called 'The Strange Case of Dr. Jekvll and .Mr. Hyde."
. The story of a good doctor .and an evil incarnate madman is a familiar one Dr. ;Jekyll created Mr. Hyde with-,An himself by the use of a .potion. The struggle of good -versus evil in the same body .and with a shared soul, both
tormented and tantalized Stevenson's Victorian readership and it became required reading for generations to come.
I'd never want to presume as to the knowledge of my loyal, regular readers regarding stuff a sli in this modern gj
world, but absent a '*-1
flock of five granddaughters between the ages of 3 and 10, I'd be entirely ignorant about Hannah Montana and Britney Spears. So, begging your par-
Fred Brannen
don in advance, let me brief you:
Britney was a very popular
teenage singing sugarplum, but the stresses of her success have taken her down a rough path to the point where she is now: a 25-5e of year-old, burned:, ?|gr out caricature of
- her former self.
Hannah Montana is the stage name of Ms. Miley Cyrus, a current, fresh-as-a-daisy, 14-year-old TV icon and singing superstar who fills the
house at $300 a pop for tickets.
My apologies to Mr. Stevenson for what is a trite use of his work, but after hearing about trick-or-treating treks on the most recently passed Halloween, I couldn't resist making a comparison.
Our seven tricksters, operating from two venues, Dallas and Orlando, dressed to the nines for the occasion. Both of the boys were Spider-Man little Fred was the red one and Eric was the black one. Ariana was a geisha. Ashley was Belle, the beauty from "Beauty and the Beast." Joy-Joy was Cinderella. Emily was
a football player, complete with a helmet and cleats. (I'm sure Em made her other grandfather, former
Pittsburgh Steeler Dick Lasse, very proud!) Kaylee was Hannah Montana.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conseruation Commission is meeting Dec. 5 to consider reclassifying the Florida manatee. The FIE says the manatee should be listed as threatened; opponents of the posh say the animal is still ndangered. SEo what does it mean for the manatees?
Recent confirmation of the mdnatee's endangered status should kill commission's downlistingplans
n September 12, 2007, the World Conservation Union (IUCN) officially declared the Florida manatee endangered using exactly the same criteria state officials are attempting to use to justify downgrading the manatee's status from
Endangered to Threatened. After a scientific status review at the international level, the Florida manatee*! ;was declared /Endangered on the 1 Red List, which is recognized as the most reliable evalu- coi ation of the world's species. The manatee's status evaluation was conducted and also reviewed by some of the world's most qualified sirenian scientists who based their recommendation for listing as Endangered on the most recent scientific data. Incongruously, that was the day the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) was scheduled to vote on whether to reclassify the manatee to a lesser state imperiled status .., a vote that marine industry representatives and go-fast /boating interests have sup-'ported for many years. But jiist two days before this monumental vote, Florida Governor Charlie Crist came to the rescue and asked the Commission for a reprieve for manatees, wisely', urging them to postpone the .vote, while also questioning the accuracy of the method used to estimate the size of the manatee popula-tioh.
..w Ultimately, t h e Commission listened to the, governor and unan i-O u s 1 y to
job s tp o n e the manatee's reclassification, but under pressure from boating and development interests they will revisit this issue at their Dec. 5 meeting.
How could the
Patrick Rose
FWC, claiming to be using IUCN's widely supported list-ing/delisting criteria, conclude that manatees are no longer endangered and move to downlist them? The answer is simple. While the FWC adopted IUCN's criteria for Endangered species, they opted to call species that met those criteria Threatened-, instead of
Endangered. Ironically, the Commission openly declares that manatees;, *with less than 2,500 adults, face a "very high risk of extinc-UIV1N tion" but want to wait until a species' risk of extinction is "imminent" before declaring it Endangered. A sure recipe for future extinctions.
The FWC continues to nonsensically argue that protections won't change if manatees are downlisted. In light of the hundreds of manatees killed since the unjustifiable reclassification process began, this argument seems disingenuous at best. At worst, a change in status at this time could have serious consequences like cuts in funding for research, rescue, and enforcement programs. Already numerous law enforcement positions are proposed to be cut to meet state budget shortfalls.
Furthermore, it is widely recognized that the natural springs and power plant discharges that most manatees depend upon to survive the coldest winter days are
.m
likely to be lost in the not too distant future. Unless Florida's springs are protected and alternatives to the power plants are found and implemented, there is also consensus that manatees could suffer catastrophic winter losses, leading to more than a 50 percent decline in the current manatee population.
With mortality continuing at a brisk pace this year, with threats from both human and natural causes escalating, and with the manatee's international biological status confirmed as endangered, itiisf time for the FWC to kill the unwarranted downlisting effort. Looking beyond manatees to Florida's other imperiled species, it is time for the Commission to fix their imperiled species classification system by adopting one where all of Florida's most at-risk species can be fairly reviewed, classified properly, and managed accordingly to sustain and recover their numbers in the wild.
As someone who has worked a lifetime to see manatees and other imperiled species recovered and ultimately taken off the Endangered Species list for biologically sound reasons, I will do all I can to resist this politically driven subversion; of Florida's imperiled species listing rule. I simply cannot celebrate such a tragic and irreversible mistake that will further endanger manatees and all the other imperiled species we steward by continuing to employ an inappropriate and widely criticized classification system. Please join me and the more than 20 million Americans who have already made known their objections to this politically driven subversion of imperiled species
protections in Florida.

Editor's note: The following is an executive summary of
the proposed Florida Manatee Management Plan (MPP). It was authored by the FWC, provides rationale for the downlisting of manatee status and is included as a counterpoint. The summary can be viewed online al http://myfwc.com/commis-sion/2007/SepW7/Documents/ ManateeExecSummItem4A2a .pdf.
Manatees (Trich-echus manatus latirostris) were first added to Florida's imperiled species list as a threatened species in 1974 and later changed to endangered status in 1979. At that time, the state's listing process was qualitative and did not have the quantitative measures that are part of the current listing process. However, listing the manatee as endangered on the state lisl was consistent with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). which in 1967 listed
the manatee as endangered.
In response to the designation as an endangered species, tremendous
resources from local, state and federal government agencies and the private sector have been directed toward research, protection and conservation of manatees. While little was known about manatees when they were first listed, they are now considered one of the most researched and well studied of all inarine mammals. The manatee conservation effort has become a case study in endangered species public policy and is chronicled in books, periodicals, and virtually all types of media. Manatees have become a Florida icon and engender an international level of public support.
This management plan provides an overview of the myriad programs, initiatives, and strategies implemented to protect and conserve manatees. While a number of the conservation actions have benefited manatees, many el' these aelions have had eco-
nomic and social impacts as well. Public debate on how to balance manatee i onset va-tion with other social values has resulted in one ol the nation's most content ions and polarized environmental issues.

Citrus County (Ft) Chronicle
Private well usage unregulated,
W
ater, water, everywhere, nor any drop to drink." ("The Rime of the Ancient Mariner," Samuel Taylor Coleridge, 1798). Within the next 50 years, all living things on this planet may well face the same crisis.
China is in search of fresh water. Its lakes and reservoirs, even the ground waters, are grossly polluted with toxic chemicals and organic wastes.
Reports suggest that as much as 30 percent of China's population does not have safe drinking water. India and all of Southeast Asia are facing polluted water crises, despite heavy rainfall averages. The Middle East and North Africa are nearly deserts. Elsewhere, around the world, water demands are rising at a rate
that will exceed current supplies.
Although 70 percent of Earth is covered by water, fresh water makes up only 3 percent. Two-thirds of fresh water is in the polar ice caps, and nearly another third is in ground water. No more than 3 percent is in lakes Vi: and rivers. The roughly 6.5 billion humans inhabiting Earth have polluted much of the available fresh water and require ever more of it to support agriculture and needs for drinking and other daily activities. It is painfully clear that we cannot go on wasting water as we have nor permitting it to become contaminated.
Dr. William Dixon
So what does it all mean for Citrus County?
It means that we have time, but that we should get serious about addressing our needs for water in the near future. If we'd had an "El Nino" summer rain, as we did a
:es few years ae> a11
- this may not have
come to the fore. We didn't, and we may be in a period of prolonged drought. Still, in Citrus County we are not about to run out of potable water any time soon. And we do not need oppressive water regulation or drastic emergency measures.
In a recent editorial, the Chronicle complained about the water management author-
ity permitting extraction of 250,000 gallons of water daily from the Three Sisters Springs for sale as bottled water. I would agree that, symbolically, it is hypocritical and annoying to demand restrictions on residential uses while allowing uses such as these. But in fact, that amount of water is truly a "drop in the bucket" as compared with the volume extracted for farming and other commercial uses. It is a minuscule amount compared with daily residential usage and nothing compared with what evaporates every day from the lake chains in the county, every one of them communicating with the aquifer.
As it stands, no one knows how many functioning wells there are in the county and less still about daily average water
use from these wells. Large commercial users, like golf courses, are monitored and regulated.
Farms and livestock ranches are not. Citizens who use central water supplies from the county or private utilities have experienced sharp increases in the cost for water beyond minimums. No doubt, higher cost has led to conservation. It is more likely that some using private wells are the ones ignoring the water restrictions.
To address the looming shortage of fresh water fairly and intelligently, the water management authority will have to identify and regulate usage of private wells so that increased water cost is shared equally by all and water conservation is practiced by all. Until that is accomplished, and barring an
actual threat to available drinking water, it makes little sense to destroy golf courses and prohibit legitimate commercial uses which do not measurably affect the aquifer. If we would divert one-half the effort spent on fighting global warming' to water availability, there would be plenty for all.

Iowa and New Hampshire: How key are they?
The Rhodes Cook letter Vol. 8 No. 2, dated April 2007 (subscribe by contacting rhodescook@aol.com), has a wonderful analysis of the Iowa and New Hampshire elections.
He says: "As a bulk of the presidential primaries have moved forward on the calendar so has the end date of the competitive stage of nominating contests. As a result, nominating campaigns that used to run the entire length of the primary season now end before the ides of March."
Of course, this has changed to where Feb. 5 has become Super Tuesday, with more than 25 states participating in that
election. At the present time, Iowa is scheduled for Jan. 3, with the New Hampshire primary a few days later. After that, we have elections in Nevada, Michigan, South Carolina and
Florida. The rush to become one of the first states has been VCM
national. In my own -
state of Florida, from 1972 through 2004, we held the presidential primary on the second Tuesday in March. This worked well for a while. However, in 2000, we had a primary turnout vote of 20 percent, and, in 2004,
Lou Frey
the turnout was 10 percent. The reason was simple: The election was over
Cook continues: "Since the primary-dominated era of presidential nominations began in 1972, 11 of 13 major party nominees won Iowa, New
Hampshire or both _^- en route to becoming their party's standard-bearer. And the two exceptions who won neither, Democrats George McGovern in 1972 and Bill Clinton in 1992, finished a solid second in New Hampshire that gave them momentum for the
contests that followed."
Jimmy Carter ('76 and '80), Al Gore COO), John Kerry ('04) and Gerald Ford ('76) won both Iowa and New Hampshire. Walter Mondale ('84), Bob Dole ('6) and George W Bush ('00) won Iowa, but not New Hampshire. Michael Dukakis ('88), Ronald Reagan ('80), and George Bush ('88) won New Hampshire, but not Iowa. As indicated' before, McGovern ('72) and Clinton ('92) won neither, but both placed second in New Hampshire.
Let me once again say that it doesn't make much sense to turn the nominations of our president over to two states that have few electoral votes and no diversity in their popu-
lation. However, this is the system we have. The question that will be answered is, because of the bunching of the primaries up to and including Super Tuesday (Feb. 5), can a candidate survive without winning either, as McGovern ('72) and Clinton ('92) did?
In the Republican Party, Former Gov. Mitt Romney (Mass.) early on put a lot of his political capital into Iowa. He has campaigned there for months and has spent a lot of money in television ads. Everything was going well,for Romney until Former Gov. Mike Huckabee (Ark) caught fire. Romney has not increased his lead, presently around 28
percent, but Huckabee has gone from nothing up to 24 percent. John McCain (R-Ariz,) has decided to forego Iowa and put all his chips in New Hampshire and is running last in Iowa among the major-candidates. If Romney does not win in Iowa, he is finished. If he barely wins in Iowa .heJis injured, but can stagger. ;on'to New Hampshire where; he must win. .ro,

tial risk of manatee extinction. Based on the criteria established by the FWC rule (68A-27.0012, FAG), the biological review panel concluded the manatee meets two of five criteria for designation as a threatened species. "Threatened" is defined in the state rule as "having a very high risk of extinction."
The biological review panel used the core biological model (CBM) to predict the probability of future declines over three generations, or approximately 60 years. The models showed that there is virtually no chance of an 80 percent decline (the threshold for endangered), but there is slightly more than a 12 percent chance of the manatee population declining by as much as 50 percent in the next 60 years (the threshold for threatened). The review panel concluded that a 12 percent chance was significant enough to merit meeting Criterion A and being listed as threatened under the state rule. In addition, the panel concluded there are fewer than 2,500 mature adults in the population and that, coupled with an estimated chance of at least a 20 percent decline in the next two generations (40 years), also met Criterion C, which additionally qualifies the manatee for threatened status.
The FWC commissioners accepted the findings of the biological review panel in June 2006. This completed phase one of the listing process. Phase two requires development and Commissioner approval of a management plan before the manatee can be reclassified. FWC chartered a team to draft the management plan. Public input and ultimately public acceptance are essential to the success of FWC management plans; accordingly, a number of steps were taken to ensure public participation. There was a 45-day comment period to solicit written comments during the development of the initial draft. The Manatee Forum, a group of 22 stakeholder organizations, provided suggestions on topics to include in the plan. In addition, FWC staff met individually with specific stakeholders to discuss their vision of the management plan prior to development of the first draft. The first draft was made available to the public and was presented to the Manatee Forum in November 2006. During the public comment period on the first draft, FWC staff received and reviewed more than 900 public comments. Changes were made and a second draft was released for additional public comment, presented to the Manatee Forum in April 2007, and presented to the FWC Commission at their June 2007 meeting. More than 3,600 comments were received on the second draft. This final plan has incorporat-

Our county government has increased its spending by double-digit margins every year for the past five years. Higher property values and the booming housing sales pumped tens of millions of dollars into our local budget. The commissioners spent that and they want more.
These five county commissioners each billed themselves as conservative Republicans when they were elected.
And each year they keep spending more money.
In hysterical irony, the onetime head of the county's Libertarian Party advises two members of the commission about how they can raise taxes. Libertarians don't raise taxes! What the heck is going on here?

Most every business will tell you that sales have been down for the past two years.
On Main Street, sales are down, employment is down and profits are down.
Only taxes are up.
Hundreds of people have lost their jobs. Hundreds of families have had their homes repossessed. Everybody is learning how to do more with less.
But County Commissioner Vicki Phillips complained at a meeting on Tuesday that she's
from 68A-27.003, the list of endangered species, and adding it to 68A-27.004, the list of threatened species. The plan addresses the key tasks outlined in the federal Florida Manatee Recovery Plan (2001) and is complementary with that plan. The goal of all federal recovery plans is to remove the species from the list of federally endangered and threatened species. In addition to this stated goal, federal recovery plans
identify management actions and criteria that must be met in order for the species to be reclassified and removed from the list. Like the federal recovery plan, this plan is intended to reduce the threat of extinction to a level where the manatee can be removed from the list of imperiled species. However, this management plan differs from the federal recovery plan because it will be used to guide management efforts to conserve the population even after the species is de-listed. Therefore, once the threat of extinction is removed, the manatee will be actively managed by the FWC and will be protected under federal and state laws.
Humans have radically altered the manatee's habitat in many ways: the dredging of canals, inlets and bays; damming of rivers; the introduction of non-native plants; destruction of seagrasses; and the proliferation of artificial warm-water discharges. All of these human actions have likely had some effect on the distribution and seasonal abundance of manatees. However, historical records indicate that, before these alterations, manatees ranged throughout Florida and into other southern states.
Accordingly, this management plan calls for the management and conservation of manatees throughout Florida, from Nassau County to Monroe County on the Atlantic coast; Monroe County through the Florida Panhandle on the Gulf
tired of people saying the county budget increased $9 million this last year when it only increased $4 million. Unbelievable.
The impact fee/property tax issue is not about the needs of senior citizens vs. those who work in the building industries. It's about a county government that is out of touch with what the economy is doing to everyone.
Leadership at the county courthouse is desperately needed. Government needs to get in line with the rest of the economy and learn how to spend less money.
And just like on Main Street,
less means less. It doesn't mean you complain that you only got $4 million more.
It means that you get creative and do a better job of prioritizing what the real needs are in our community.
Maybe that means we don't have paid firemen. And we don't buy new vehicles for everyone. And that we don't get the latest technical gadgets for all of our employees. And that means we don't buy right of way all over the place for future road projects. And it means we have fewer employees. And we make fewer trips to conferences where the taxpayers pick up

Wh^je the state listing criteria considers the statewide populatipn>it is helpful to consider- t$e progress of management actions on a regional basis. ,To ensure manatees thrive in all parts of Florida, the pl|n divides the state into four management units: the Atlantic coast, the Southwest coast, tfiie Northwest coast, and the upp|sr St. Johns River.

That is our role annoying though it may be.
We want our commissioners to be willing to step back and reconsider things like raising taxes, smothering small businesses with high impact fees, protecting our water and addressing work space needs of government employees.
Wimpy editorials beat around the bush, so if our comments are sharp, the intention
is to avoid mincing words and to cut to the chase.
What qualifies us to be such a pain?
We care greatly about Citrus County. We have our homes here, we're making our living here and I imagine nearly all of us will retire here. Our children grew up here and we want a healthy environment, quality education and career opportunities for tomorrow's generation of Citrus Countians.
Excluding the editorial board's citizen member Curt Ebitz and guest members Mac Harris and Norm Wagy the six
Chronicle staffers on the editorial board have a combined total of nearly 150 years of living in Citrus County.
I'm the newcomer with only 18 years under my belt, whereas Publisher Gerry Mulligan has lived here 29 years and Circulation Director Kathie Stewart has been here 28 years. Director of Community Affairs Neale Brennan's lived here 26 years, senior reporter Jim Hunter's lived in Citrus a total of 24 years and Managing Editor Mike Arnold's been here 23 years.
As you probably deduced,
the board's made up of men and women; Democrats, Republicans and
Independents; journalism school graduates, school-of-hard-knocks graduates; people with Southern roots and people from the North.
In other words, we're not too different from any given cross-section of Citrus Countians.
While wimpy editorials do no one any good, there's perhaps a wimpish quality inside me that wants our elected officials to know that as divided as the editorial board and commission majority may be
on certain issues, the lambasting offered up in editorials shouldn't be perceived as personal character assaults. Still, it's understandable that sharp criticism of commissioners' stances or reluctance to take a stance will be taken personally.
I don't know, maybe it's just the Christmas spirit sneaking up on me, but I hope that it's understood that spirited debate and dialogueyes, and flat-out criticism are rooted in the need to keep the business of the public and health of our community top-of-mjfrrl
among citizens and our elected officials.
The editorial board can and will question the logic of any and all elected officials. At t}ie end of the day, though, the bi$i-ness of shaping Citrus County's future needs to take a brief rest so we can set aside our differences, be at peace with ojie another and enjoy this place we call home. J

must implement the many tasks described in this plan. Adequate
^funding will be necessary to achieve success. Present projections indi- cate the Save the Manatee Trust Fund will be inadequate to support .'the existing level of management
J,and research within the next few years. Additional commitments of funds from state, federal or private sector sources will be needed to continue the existing manatee program and to accomplish new tasks called
, for in this plan. <, The conservation goal of this plan is iq, remove the manatee from the state imperiled species list and effec-
: tively manage the population in perpetuity throughout Florida by securing habitat and minimizing threats. The plan identifies six primary objectives to accomplish this goal.
OBJECTIVES
(1) Within three years, implement peer-reviewed and statistically sound methods to estimate the man-, atee population and monitor trends. 5, (2) Reduce human-caused annual manatee mortality rate by minimizing human-related threats, including those attributed to watercraft, water-;j control structures, entanglement
- > and entrapment
.?s*,(3) Within five years, in full coop-
eration with electric utilities, develop and implement plans to prevent
- significant future manatee mortality caused by potential changes in power plant operation.
V. '.(4X Within five years, in cooperate Jtioh with the water management dis-
'tficts, establish minimum' flows at ^Florida springs that protect the
warm-water habitat requirements of manatees.
(5) Within five years, enhance management practices, such as a statewide monitoring program, that help ensure sufficient abundance and distribution of seagrasses and
freshwater vegetation to support the manatee population in perpetuity.
(6) Use measurable biological goals (MBGs) in an ongoing fashion to measure progress toward recov-eiy and to assist in the evaluation of the need for future research, regulatory and management actions. The MBGs focus on adult survival rates, availability of habitat and the number of mature individuals in the population.
Radical changes to existing conservation measures already established to manage manatees are not necessary to accomplish the conservation goal and objectives of this plan. The latest population models indicate that the manatee population is growing in three out of four management units with the population in southwest Florida likely declining. However, population growth alone will not necessarily move the manatee to a lower risk category under the state listing system. In order for that to happen, we will need to eliminate or reduce existing and future threats to acceptable levels so that the chances of significant future declines are very small. The primary focus of management efforts over the past 35 years has been to control, and to eliminate where possible, human-caused manatee mortality. The best available science indicates that increasing adult survival rates (reducing death rate) have a profound impact on manatee population growth. The emphasis on human-caused sources of mortality as opposed to natural mortality, such as disease, has been largely pragmatic. The responsibility for human-caused mortality is ours, and there is more opportunity for controlling and mitigating these factors. Therefore, efforts to reduce risks from watercraft collisions, structure-related deaths, and other human-caused mortality factors will continue. In addition to human-caused mortality, the FWC is also concerned with manatee mortality from causes such as red tide. However, red tide has broad ecologi-
cal, economic and human health implications and is addressed and studied from a broader perspective. The impacts of red tide on manatees are discussed in this plan, but a thorough discussion of red tide is beyond the scope of this manatee management plan.
The plan recognizes the need to address the public policy implications of long-term manatee reliance on warm water produced by power plants. A predicted decline in the manatee population resulting from the potential loss of warm-water sources is a key factor contributing to listing the manatee as threatened. If steps are taken to reduce the likelihood of a major population reduction, manatee status could be reevaluated and perhaps reclassified. Accordingly, the plan calls for an increased emphasis on warm-water issues and will develop contingency plans and management plans to reduce the potential loss of life in the event of a change in power plant operation.
Floridians can be proud of past efforts to protect and conserve manatees and it is encouraging that manatee numbers are growing in most areas of the state. However, there is still much to be done. The listing of manatees as threatened under the state system means the species still has a very high risk of extinction. Florida's predicted human population growth will make achieving the conservation goal very challenging. Human population growth and associated development will compete for available fresh water, alter coastal habitats and submerged aquatic resources, and make efforts to control human-caused mortality increasingly difficult Nevertheless, provided appropriate state and federal resources are dedicated to accomplishing the many tasks outlined in this plan, we are optimistic the status of manatees will improve, their long-term survival will be secured, and they will remain a unique and treasured part of Florida.
Cooler stolen
I had my boat for sale it's Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving up on Croft. I dropped it off this morning and it was all good to go. I had nice big cooler like a 110-quart cooler which went with the boat. It sat there all day. I came this evening to pick it up and I go there and somebody stole the cooler out of my boat. I mean I don't know what you've got to do. I mean I don't know if I need to have a camera in my boat, so that way I can see who takes the stuff. But I mean if you can't afford your own cooler, why steal a cooler out of somebody's boat? I mean it's just that I paid for the cooler and it was supposed'to go with the boat. But it just, to me, it doesn't make sense. I'm sorry, but it's just whoever took it, I mean, you're pretty low.
Free speech
The Chronicle does not put in the paper everything that people want them to hear. You people scan all these tapes that people call you about, and you say that you want to put in the paper just what you want. Well, why don't you put the truth in the Chronicle? This is the United States. It's not Russia and it's not Germany. Do something about it.
Hobo jungle
I know that snowbird season is upon us, but how come these people have to live in other people's back yards and front yards? Isn't that what an RV park's for? I don't know if it's legal or not, but I wouldn't think it's very sanitary. Citrus County's starting to look like a hobo jungle with all these RVs in front yards and back yards with people living in them. I think it's a shame.
No parade
I wonder why the television people call this the Macy's Thanksgiving
Day Parade. All it is is excerpts from the Broadway shows. You don't see the parade. A ridiculous time we live in.
After reading the paper this morning, we surely hope that the elections get here quickly. We can no longer afford our county commissioners, nor our planning and zoning director and his office there. TheyYe making it so people cannot live in Citrus County. But again, perhaps that's what they would like no one else in Citrus County but them and theirs.
I'm still trying to get the results, but back in, it was about two or three years ago, about the little red hats that were still in the Christmas tree, hanging off the Christmas tree the ornaments. Nobody has responded to whatever happened to that. I would like to know if you would please put that in the paper for the old red hats.
irfo compassion
What kind of a community do we live in? On the morning after Thanksgiving Day, a Sound Off appears in the Chronicle titled "Just do it." The caller appears to have no compassion for a worker with four kids whose work week has been reduced to two days a week...
Ear, nose, throat
We use ear, nose and throat doctors quite often. I live in Inverness and it's a problem because there are not very many ear, nose and throat doctors around in the area. It would be a good idea for somebody to move to this area and go into that area because there's a lot of business.
Cause of death
Wake up, people. Countries do not die of natural causes; they commit suicide.
The Chronicle is proud to sponsor events that make our community great

Hospital grows with county
Seven Rivers plans for change
Jim Hunter jhunter@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
Brancato noted a 2004 growth in
total admission of 3.1 percent, 4.9 percent in 2005, and 9.7 percent in 2006.
esponding to a growing county and increased demand for services, Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center is doing some renovating, expanding and adding of new services.
The new year will have some significant changes for the medical center north of Crystal River, including additional beds, two new surgical suites and a new, separate comprehensive medical rehabilitation center with 16 beds.
Seven Rivers CEO Joyce Brancato said increasing admission, emergency and surgical statistics are all driving the expansion. The hospital's admission figures tell the story, she said, reflecting the county's growth. Brancato noted a 2004 growth in total admission of 3.1 percent, 4.9 percent in 2005, and 9.7 percent in 2006.
The inpatient surgeries were up 18.2 percent in 2003-04, 7.3 percent in 2004-05 and 14.2 percent in 2005-06. The emergency room has seen similar growth in patients: 9.5 percent in 2004,17.4 percent in 2005 and 13.3 percent in 2006. This year the projected increase is 6.3 percent. Generally, about 20 percent of those patients are admitted to the hospital, Brancato said.
When the dust settles, the hospital will have rearranged its beds for a total of 128, but will have a new service that coincides with a specialty at the hospital, the Primary Stroke Center.
In late 2005 the hospital decided to begin to transition its 16 psychiatric beds to other uses. Because inpatient comprehensive medical rehabilitation is a new service to the hospital, the facility had to go through a lengthy certificate of need process that takes about a year and a half.
The new unit, scheduled for construction early in the New Year, will coincide with needs created by the increasing surgical patient population and the center's stroke center, Brancato said.
The hospital is certified not only by the state for its Primary Stroke Center, but it has also been given the national Joint Commission for Primary Stroke Centers' Gold Seal

Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center CEO Joyce Brancato talks about the plans the hospital has to add more beds to the Crystal River facility. Additional beds, two new surgical suites and a new, separate comprehensive medical rehabilitation center with 16 beds are planned for the new year.
of Approval, she said.
Stroke patients, like major orthopedic surgery cases, are some of the patients who need an intensive medical rehab, rather than the subacute rehabilitation offered by nursing homes. The difference in the rehab programs is that doctors do daily rounds in the comprehensive rehab center and patients get about three times the daily rehab
treatment than in sub-acute programs. "There is a distinct level of care difference," she said.
The closest comprehensive rehab centers to Citrus residents presently are in Hernando County and Gainesville, Brancato said, meaning patients and family members have to travel as much as 50 miles or more. "It's a real benefit for people in Citrus County," she said.
With the hospital's stroke center, and stroke patients making up the larger part of comprehensive rehab population, the two services will complement each other, she said. Now patients get the fastest care possible for stroke, she said. The hospital can be prepped in minutes for incoming stroke patients, which

Local financial adviser achieves high score
The results are in and senior financial advisor, Christopher Nast has received high marks from his clients in the Ameriprise Financial adviser client satisfaction survey. Nast ranked in the top 5 percent of 2,608 participating advisers who scored at least 99 (of a possible 100) based on two key ratings: clients' overall satisfaction with the advisor and the amount of proactive contact the client receives from the adviser.
Conducted by an independent research organization, the survey gives clients an opportunity to rate their advisor overall and in nine areas ranging from their financial knowledge, ability to listen and to provide customized advice to suit clients' needs.
'As a company, we take these survey results seriously," said Brian Heath, president, Ameriprise Financial U.S. Advisor Group. "In today's economic environment clients have heightened expectations of their financial adviser and I commend these financial advisers

who have clearly exceeded their clients' expectations."
As a financial adviser, Nast provides customized financial advice that is anchored in a solid understanding of client needs and expectations, and provided in a one-on-one relationship with his client. Nast is a senior adviser with the Lecanto office of Ameriprise Financial located at 1619 W. Gulf-to-Lake Highway. He can be reached at 746-9006.

External hard drive is key
Rob Pegoraro The Washington Post
Q. I have a refurbished MacBook and have yet to back up any of my files. Can you recommend an external hard drive that is idiot-proof?
A Get a hard drive that includes both FireWire and USB 2.0 ports, so you don't have to tie up one of the MacBook's two USB ports with the drive.
The drive should also be "bus powered," meaning that it gets all of its electricity from a USB or FireWire port and doesn't need to be plugged into a wall outlet.
The second half of this advice applies to PC users as well, considering how many power strips are already maxed out under the average computer desk.
You also need to get into the habit of backing up regularly.
Both Apple's new Mac OS X Leopard and Microsoft's Windows Vista Home Premium

include backup software (though Leopard's Time Machine is far more capable than Vista's Backup Center), and most external hard drives include backup software of their own.
Q. My dad has a lot of 5 1/4-inch floppy disks that may have important data on them.
What is the best way to recover those files?
A Contact a local PC user group or a computer repair shop and see if either one has a computer with both 5 1/4-inch and 3 1/2-inch floppy-disk drives.
You could then copy the files from the old disks if they're still readable, which is not assured after so many years to more modern media in two steps.
First, you'd move the data to a 3 1/4-inch floppy, which you'd take to a not-so-old computer for a second transfer to a recordable CD or USB flash drive.

President's message
hope is
Icertainly everyone enjoying our Fall weather as much as I am. What a great time of the year! We can look back over 2007 and see where we have been and now start to look forward to 2008 to see where we are going. There have been so many important things happening over the past few months, I am not sure where to begin. So let's start with the Chamber's "new" Web site! We have put a lot of effort, energy and time to arrive at this point. The Chamber staff and Citrus County Chronicle have worked very well in bringing you what we feel is a great product. A new addition to the website is including a survey question. One in which we can change as frequently as daily or weekly. The bells and whistles that have been added will assist us in better serving you and providing you with an opportunity to advertise. You can look forward to seeing a new addition in our featured Business spotlight, another opportunity for the chamber to showcase our members.
The Chamber has partnered with the Citrus County Builders Association, medical community and Board of Realtors to create a coalition that seeks not only to be informed, but also to inform the community on various activities of our local, county, state and federal government. We as business minded individuals should never be remiss in speaking with our elected officials on a regular basis. All too often it is said that our County
Commissioners did not do what "we" wanted. I then must pause and ask the question, Did I speak with our County Commissioners, our City Council persons, etc and let them know how I felt on issues? Well, I for one have
Carl Flanagan
stepped up to the plate and increased my conversations with several of our elected officials. What I have found is they welcomed my visit. Not only that, they encouraged me to come back. So look for more information to come! Civic responsibilities in today's environment are more important now than ever before. Our Blood bank supplies are at very low levels and need our support. Our food pantries are very low because of the down turn in our economy and we need support in replenishing them. The Christmas parades in Crystal River and Inverness are quickly approaching and volunteers are needed. The Manatee Festival in January is around the corner and volunteers are needed. Our school system needs our support at various levels to volunteer in various capacities. I was asked to read a book at Crystal River Primary last week. The feeling I walked away with from that class made me think the students need all of us to share more of our time with them. Each of us has so much to offer, please see how you can help our schools.
With Veteran's Day recently being observed, I would urge each and everyone that knows a Veteran to extend a warm handshake and thank him or her for providing us the freedom that we enjoy today! These individuals gave of themselves in World War I, World War II, the Korean Conflict, the Vietnam police action and now in Iraq. Each in their own right deserves a ticker tape parade. I have proudly flown an American flag on my truck and will continue to do so in honor of those who are laying down their lives for us. I would challenge each of you to Stand Up, Be Proud and fly the American Flag!
Don't forget!

CMHS unit recognized
Citrus Memorial Health System would like to recognize its Orthopedics Unit for the highest increases in patient satisfaction scores for November. Patient satisfaction scores are based upon surveys mailed out to patients after a hospital stay and give patients an opportunity to provide vital feedback that is used to improve services.
Citrus Memorial is striving to provide patients with the best hospital experience possible in its "Pursuit of Excellence."
Citrus Memorial is a 198-bed not-for-profit community hospital that provides health care services to residents of Citrus County and surrounding communities. More than 150 physicians and 1,000 employees provide a wide range of services at our Inverness campus and at medical offices and clinics in eight locations in Citrus and Sumter counties. Citrus Memorial is fully accredited by the Joint Commission and is fully licensed by the State of Florida.
Doctor completes training
The Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography recently announced that Michael E. Berlow, M.D., FACR, MBA, president of Associated Radiologists of Inverness, has recently met the Level 2 requirements for training in Cardiac CT. The rigorous training required for such an accomplishment includes the completion of more than 200 CT Angiography (CTA) examinations, 20 hours of lectures and Continuing Medical Education credits related to CT or CTA. Dr. Berlow was also supervised and trained by mentor physician Dr. Eric Harrison at the Harrison Heart Institute in Tampa.
CT Angiography is a non-invasive alternative to cardiac catheterization that can be used on patients at high risk for complications from an invasive procedure. Patients may undergo CTA to evaluate blockages in arteries if they are experiencing chest pain or an unexplained cardiac disturbance. The procedure is done on an outpatient basis due to .the fact that it involves very little preparation and no anesthesia.
Dr. Michael E. Berlow joined the active medical staff at Citrus Memorial Health System in June of 2007 as Medical Director of the Diagnostic Imaging Department. He completed his education at State University of New York Health Science Center in Syracuse, New York and has been in practice since 1981. He has previously held department chair positions at two previous hospitals, including a Cleveland Clinic hospital in Ohio.

Tuition reduced for class
The Greater Hernando County Chamber of Commerce has announced that in response to the needs of the business community as reflected by the current economy the Entrepreneurial Academy tuition of $225 has been reduced to $185. In addition, the Chamber's Steering Committee also decided to limit registrations to only 30 participants. This will allow for a more interactive environment. This decision was based on the need to make the Entrepreneurial Academy much more relative to the needs of existing businesses and business owners as opposed to just those who are contemplating starting a new business in Hernando County.
The Entrepreneurial Academy is a 10-week course where entrepreneurs learn from local experts on how to succeed in business, write business plans, avoid common pitfalls in today's business world, and in particular survive in the current economy.
The Entrepreneurial Academy is conducted by a host of business people and entrepreneurs who have earned a reputation for being successful in Hernando County. Participants receive the opportunity of networking with these established business people. Classes are held Tuesday nights from 6:30 to 9 p.m., beginning Jan. 8, 2008. Classes are at Career Central, 7361 Forest Oaks Boulevard, Spring Hill, 34606. For additional information, call Carla Hayes at 352-796-0697 ext. 15.

is critical in the care, she said. In stroke cases, she said, "Time is brain tissue." That can make all the difference in outcomes for them, she said.
Now that care will be connected to the more intense rehab, making the whole treatment one process.
Construction on the additional beds is under way on the third floor of the hospital. The comprehensive rehab center will also be on the third floor of the hospital. Construction on the rehab center is expected to begin next spring.
The bids on the surgical suites are expected in December and construction could begin in January, Brancato said. The two new operating rooms will be bigger
than the present four and will be "smart operating rooms," she said.
Operating room equipment, including diagnostic imaging and laparoscopic instruments, will be available from the ceiling, clearing the traditional clutter and giving the surgical team more mobility. The array of non-invasive and laparoscopic equipment at their fingertips just above the operating table will be a plus, Brancato said. "That will be a real advantage for our surgeons using the minimal invasive techniques."
As to the medical center's growth, Brancato said the hospital is not only meeting present and near future needs but planning for the more distant future. She said that looking at the projected population for the county and its economic growth reflected in infrastructure plans such as the extension of the Suncoast Parkway through
the county it's plain that ;i planning for that future is nec-essary. .' !;
She said Seven Rivers is ;' doing that "We are fulfilling our ; mission. Our mission is to pro~-l vide excellent care to our com- ': munity," Brancato said. And as '. evidenced by its certifications and awards, she said, the hospi: tal is doing that, and this next phase of its growth will only .' offer county residents more and better services in their own; county. s
Seven Rivers Regional med:-ical Center is owned by Health Management Associates, known as HMA (NYSE:HMA) and is headquartered in Naples, Fla. It operates acute care hospitals primarily in the non-urban southeast and southwest areas of the nation. It operates 59 hospitals in 15 states with about 8,400 licensed beds.

If you've been waiting for the right time to buy a home, you should know the facts about homeownership. Right now, interest rates are still at historic lows, conventional financing is available and FHA-insured mortgage applications are on the rise. The more you know, the more you'll realize it's a decision you shouldn't postpone any longer.
On average, the value of a home nearly doubles every 10 years. That's a return most investments can't match. During the past three decades, home values have increased an average of 66 percent per year: And because most buyers invest only a small part of their home's total value in a down payment, their return on that initial investment is much greater, thanks to the power of leverage.
The average homeowner today has 36 times the wealth of the average renter. Home ownership is the key to climbing up the economic ladder. When you own a home, you're essentially paying yourself and building up equity not to
REALTORS'
ASSOCIATION OF CfTRUS COUNTY. INC.
mention the tax deductions only owners can claim, such as property taxes and mortgage interest
Sixty percent of the average homeowner's wealth is their home's equity. Very few people look back and regret their decision to purchase a home. Historically speaking, homeowners who are in it for the long haul will build equity. In fact, home equity is the largest single source of household wealth for most Americans.
Of course, a home is much more than a way to accumulate wealth. It's a place to enjoy your lifestyle and your loved ones. What other investment can claim that?

Adding festive color to fall landscape
Now that fall is in air here in Citrus County, the desire to work in the yard has returned for most garden enthusiasts. Fall is a great time to tidy up the landscape by removing summer annuals which have begun to look shabby and breathe some new life into your landscape. Give a fresh look to your landscape by removing weeds and spreading a fresh layer of mulch around shrubs and trees.
For those wanting to add some festive color to their fall landscape, consider planting an annual flower garden. Most annuals are classified into two groups cool season annuals and warm season annuals. Florida's cool season is from October to IFKlElNlIJlOf April, so we are able to |iM^, grow many annuals during LSWlllw the winter which would normally be planted in the spring in northern states. As long as the proper planting time is considered, home gardeners can produce many colorful annuals all winter. Remember, however, the cool season annuals you plant in the fall must be able to endure frost if they are planted outdoors. According to Dr. Bob Black, many kinds of annuals can be planted now for winter color. Consider a bed of wax begonia, sweet

Showcasing 'green' housing
JIM HUNTER/Chronicle
ABOVE: Rusaw Homes owner George Rusaw, at left, still holds the signed commitment he made minutes before to build all his future homes with solar hot water units and other energy-saving features. He speaks to guests in the kitchen of his prize-winning energy efficient home, under the illumination of a solar light just one of the home's energy-saving features. ON THE COVER: Rusaw Homes owner George Rusaw, right, recently gave Florida Solar Foundation Executive Director Colleen McCann Kettles and Progress Energy Manager for Energy Analysis & Alternative Energy Christopher Gillman a tour of the Rusaw home in Pine Ridge that received top honors from Progress Energy, for power efficiency. Rusaw points out the solar collector atop the home.
Local builder makes big commitment to energy-efficient housing

uilding highly energy efficient homes may be a good marketing strategy, especially in today's "greening" marketplace, but few would dispute that it's also good for homebuyers' monthly budgets, for energy conservation and for the environment
In other words, it's a win/win deal, according to George Rusaw, owner of longtime local building company Rusaw Homes. Having publicly committed his company to making all his homes highly energy-efficient homes, Rusaw, who builds Energy Star-qualified homes, finds himself in the comfortable position of being able to say "It's the right thing to do," and mean it in all senses.
Progress Energy, the utility that supplies power in Citrus and 34 other counties, agrees in a big way. Facing a projected 25 percent increase in the demand for electricity in its service area in the next decade, the company sees homes like the one Rusaw built on the corner of Elkcam and Lantana Drive in Pine Ridge as key to its ability to meet demand and reduce the impact of its fossil fuels on the environment
The company awarded the Rusaw home its 2007 Aurora Award as the most energy-efficient new home in all the 35 counties of the company's service area. .
The home has a series of features designed to make the home more energy efficient, including solar water heating, equipment that saves hot water from the faucet, solar lighting, special window glass that reduces heat transfer, and specialized wall and roof insulation that dramatically increases heating and cooling efficiency.
Rusaw Homes recently showcased the features after a ceremony in which the builder signed a memo of understanding with Progress Energy and the Florida Solar Energy Research & Education Foundation to make high energy efficiency the standard in all Rusaw homes.
Hundreds of builders in the state participate with the utility in its Home Advantage partners program and about a dozen or so are working with they company's relatively new solar water heater program to make the systems available to home buyers, but according to Progress Energy, Rusaw is the first builder in the state to pledge to make solar water heating standard in every one of its new homes.
Solar water heater
While the cost of solar water heating can add as much as $6,000 to the price of a home, there are ways to reduce the price

tag. There are tax incentives and rebates for both builders and homebuyers that can reduce the ultimate cost by almost half if the builder passes its savings on to the customer, according to Jim Crosley marketing director for Rusaw Homes.
One lender, Bank of America, has partnered with Rusaw to offer $1,000 off closing costs for homes designated Energy Star Homes, meaning they are at least 15 percent more efficient than the national Model Energy Code.
The solar unit in the Rusaw home can reduce water-heating costs 75 percent to 90 percent, saving the average family $300 to $500 a year, more than offsetting the additional mortgage cost, Crosley said.
It's also environmentally friendly. Using a solar water-heating unit annually saves the amount of electricity 2,800 kilowatts that would put about 2 to 2 1/2 tons of carbon dioxide, 12 to 20 pounds of sulfur dioxide, and 12 pounds of nitrogen oxide into the atmosphere, according to Progress Energy.
As in all forms of conservation, the state has recognized what can be achieved by the economy of scale and has set a goal per Governor Charlie Crist of getting at least 262,572 new homes on solar water heaters by 2020. That would save $400 million in utility bills, reduce greenhouse gasses by 3 million tons and save 400,000 kilowatts.
That doesn't even take into account the 4.4 million single-family housing inventory that could be retrofitted.
The new solar units are compact and more efficient
than previous generations. The solar collector unit on the 2,000-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bath Rusaw home is only 4 feet by 8 feet and 7 1/2 inches thick, making it unobtrusive on the roof.
That unit handles 40 gallons of water and is insulated to minimize heat loss at night, Crosley said. The solar storage tank in the garage holds another 40 gallons. "That's 80 gallons altogether," he said, "so you would never ever run out. It's a pretty good set-up."
Special windows
Another energy-saving feature in the house is the low-energy glass used on glass surfaces that are exposed to the direct sun, such as the southeastern side of the house. Whereas before, the best insulated glass used a double pane with argon gas sandwiched in between the panes, the new glass uses an extremely fine
mat between the panes that allows light through and the ability to see through it, but bounces the ultraviolet heat back, either retaining it inside in the cold weather or bouncing it back outside in the summer.
Lighting
All the light fixtures in the home use low-energy fluorescent bulbs or solar lights. The fluorescent lights produce little heat compared to the traditional incandescent bulbs and use about a third the energy, which is an impressive energy savings, Crosley said. Multiply that savings by many, many homes, and, he said, "It's huge."
The Lantana home has a big, extremely bright solar light over the kitchen, flooding the area with a soft, very white light When the sun is shinning, the solar lights are as bright as any electric fix-
ture, and the 18-inch solar light delivers the equivalent of 1,000 watts (think ten 100-watt bulbs) while filtering the ultraviolet out. "It's an amazing thing," Crosley said.
The solar tube ceiling fixtures can be fitted with ventilation fans and electric light fixtures for dual use. He added that the light is so bright that people, thinking it has to be electric, often try to find a switch to turn it off when they leave.
Saving hot water
The bathroom and kitchen water faucets in the home have a special feature designed to save 3,500 to 12,000 gallons a year. When the water heater is not near the faucet, the previous hot water, now cooled, must run for varying lengths of time until the hot water from the

JANE WEBEFt/For the Chronicle
A bundle of red cedar boughs adorned with red ribbon and other holiday decorations add a festive touch to any home.
JANE WEBER/For the Chronide
Red cedar trees are drought tolerant evergreens that provide food and shelter for birds as they adorn the landscape.
December prompts many gardeners to think of creative, natural ways to celebrate the holiday season. A bundle of red cedar boughs pruned from the specimen tree encroaching on my driveway and tied with festive red ribbon not only decorates the front door, but also makes a lovely fragrant gift for visitoi's, friends and family. The donor cedar will respond with lush, dense, new growth to provide a sustain- mas able resource in fjjjlljp
future years. -
Red cedar; juniperus virgini-ana, is native to Eastern North America from Canada to Central Florida from Zones 3 to 9. It is one of the first species to colonize a disturbed site such as fields, undeveloped
Jane Weber
lots and roadsides.
Birds depend on the seeds of female trees for food and, in turn, the cedar seeds get deposited far from their mother plant. Naturally very drought-tolerant, planted seedlings grow well with available rainfall and dew, but transplanted cedars will require supplemental watering until established.
Soil should be well-drained no problem there in the sand hills but PEN should be amended _1_ with humus or compost to promote faster growth. On the coastal plain, salt-tolerant red cedars do well on elevated hammocks even close to brackish standing water

numerous uses in the garden. They are probably best displayed in front of shrubbery borders. By choosing annuals of different heights, deep flower borders can be produced. Plant the taller species at the rear and progressively shorter varieties in front Use colors which blend well and avoid too many varieties having different colors. Beds should be large enough so that flowers can be cut and used to provide winter color indoors. Many low-growing annuals make effective edgings for walks and drives, and don't forget to use annuals for window boxes and porch gardening. Remember to locate the bed in an area which receives full sun at least half a day, and stay away from large trees. Tree roots are strong competitors for fertilizer and water, so plant your flowers in a spot where trees will not compete. By showcasing your fall annuals in one bed, you can minimize irrigation of the entire landscape.
Annuals can be planted as seeds or obtained as bedding plants, which can be transplanted into the garden. Bedding plants are usually available at reasonable prices and offer
flowers quicker than growing your own plants from seed. For those considering starting an annual bed from seeds, remember, you get what you pay for. Seeds of named varieties of a specified color are more expensive than color mixtures. The later should not be expected to produce flowers of as high quality as the more expensive seeds. If possible, plant seeds after the rainy season or small seeds may be washed away. The other alternative is to start plants in flats so they can be moved to shelter during rain storms.

tank reaches the faucet, which wastes water.
The Rusaw home is fitted with the Metlund Hot Water D'MAND pump system, which flushes hot water back into the hot water tank after the hot water is shut off, and then delivers it from the tank extremely quickly, even by automatic sensorfor example, if the base of the sink stand detects a person standing in front of it Hot water lines are insulated.
insulation
On the inside of the roof, the Rusaw home utilizes a heat barrier foil on the outside of the insulation. The manufacturer says it can reduce the temperature in an attic by 30 degrees. "It's like a shade tree over the house," Crosley said, adding that Rusaw now uses the foil as standard because of its effectiveness.
In wall construction, the house uses foiled Styrofoam between the furring strips and drywall that forms a heat barrier in addition to insulation, giving the wall an R30 insulation factor. The drywall has a moisture barrier.
Crosley said the house is designed to be as energy efficient as possible.

because they have a shallow, wide-spreading, mat-like root system.
They prefer neutral to slightly alkaline soil, but adapt well to acidic conditions with a pH from 5.0 to 8.0. Full sun exposure with at least 15 feet between trees will produce an erect, conical, dense evergreen with low branches right down to the ground. That is an ideal specimen plant you can adorn for the holidays. Crowded trees and those grown in dense shade may grow taller, spindlier and with sparser leaves. These plants need room to grow.
Red cedar has a long lifespan. Locally it was formerly a dominant species, but was over-harvested for timber, furniture making, pencil production and garden top mulch. This dense evergreen can be used as a tall privacy screen mixed with other native trees and shrubs for biodiversity.
I planted 240 around the perimeter of my lot as a living hedgerow a security fence that is passable for wildlife and a noise barrier from future development. The proposed Suncoast Parkway might be just three or four miles from my homestead, and a natural buffer will absorb and deflect the highway noise.
Birds depend on red cedar for cover from predators, roost and nest sites, as well as food.
Older books and scientists separated red cedar into eastern, J. virginiana and southern, J. silicola subspecies, but newer research indicates they are all the former variety.
Female trees produce profuse, showy clusters of purple round berries that are actually cones; hence the genus is a gymnosperm or cone bearer. Male trees have tiny yellowish cones perfect for decorating arts and crafts.
With so many desirable features, red cedar is an excellent choice for any garden and makes a living gift for the "green" homeowner who wants to reduce his or her carbon footprint and help nature recover from human population stress. Happy holidays.
