Inverness child dies in Plant City
Holiday event turns to tragedy
Keri Lynn WIcHale kmchale@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
A 9-year-old Inverness Primary School pupil died Friday evening after he was dragged under a float at the Plant City Christmas Parade.
Around 8:15 p.m., Jordan Hays was handing out beads and candy while walking alongside a truck and trailer being used as a float for the Greater Heights Family Worship Center, according to a Plant City Police Department news release. He went to retrieve more candy from the trailer, when he was run over by the trailer tires, the news release further states.
A wheel caught his foot and he was dragged underneath,
said Plant City Police Chief Bill McDaniel. Parade-goers shouted at the driver to back up; the pickup truck pulling the float ran over Hays a second time. Its driver, Ricky Tarlton of Plant City, is Jordan's cousin.
Jordan was taken to a hospital, where he later died. He had been in town visiting his brother.
"This is a tragedy that defies words," McDaniel said. "This was supposed to be a time of
celebration and joy, but it has turned into a terrible tragedy."
Citrus County Schools Superintendent Sandra "Sam" Himmel and Citrus County School Board member Pat Deutschman offered their condolences for the Hays family. Both said they are heartbroken over the tragedy.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the family," Himmel said.
Deutschman said she is sad-

"There will be a crisis team there Monday for the students," Himmel said. The team consists of guidance counselors, school psychologists and other officials who help pupils during times of grief, Deutschman said.

Driving program on tap
Class aims to improve teen driving skills
Cristy Loftis cloftis@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
Teenagers wanting to hone their skills on the road will get their chance this spring as a new driving program comes to the county's three high schools.
Developed in the past year, the Teen Driver Challenge is a course that teaches teenagers how to react in a variety of emergency situations, such as if their car skids off the road, fishtails or if a tire blows out.
This week, the principals of Citrus, Crystal River and Lecanto high schools met with Sheriff Jeff Dawsy and members of the Citrus County Teen Driving Task Force to implement the Teen Driver Challenge.
Basically, the course will be free to juniors and seniors who have a driver's license and access to a vehicle. Students will first attend four hours of classroom instruction, followed by more than six hours of on-the-road training. Students can complete the course in a week
Members of the sheriff's office have been working with the Florida Sheriff's Association to develop a program for about a year. Efforts to have a local program accelerated after the Citrus County Teen Driving Task Force was created several months ago.

fire plan at meeting

First police. Is fire next?
The Crystal River City Council on Monday will consider a recommendation that the city merge its volunteer fire department with Citrus County's at a potential cost savings to city taxpayers.
City Manager Andy Houston is recommending the merger, saying it makes sense from both a city and county standpoint
Operating costs would be about the same as they are now. City property owners would pay the special fire district, millage that property owners outside of Crystal River now pay.
But the county would be on the hook for new equipment purchases, the one area that city

officials knew they faced in the next few years.
In a lengthy memo to council members, Houston said that the county is promising to keep the staffing levels at the Crystal River station at or better than current levels.
The county will not commit to housing paid firefighters at the station, nor can it bind future county commissions to keeping the firehouse open in downtown Crystal River.
Still, Houston noted that the Crystal River Fire Department now responds to calls outside the city.

Marilyn Caban hasn't spoken a word in the past four years, and not by choice.
Her silence was caused by a massive stroke that damaged the portion of her brain controlling speech.
Caban, 40, had begun to think she would never communicate again with family and friends. It was a depressing prospect.
But in the past three months, she has begun to have hope.
Thanks to advances in technology and the existence of the Center for Independent Living in Lecanto, Caban has been given an opportunity to regain some of the freedom she lost when the stroke silenced her

device. The commands are translated by the device into spoken words.
The Dynavox Vmax Series 5 is a touchscreen computer for people living with conditions such as cerebral palsy, autism and traumatic brain injury. Manufactured by Sentient Systems Technologies Inc., the device is designed to allow Caban to communicate her thoughts in any situation.
The machine does the talking.
Representatives of the Center for Independent Living arranged for Medicaid to buy the device and provided the counselors to train her how to use it. The sole purpose of the center is to give people like Caban a chance to become as independent as possible.

Repeat offender faces battery charge
BRIAN LaPETER/Chronicle file
Teens participate this summer in a sheriff's office pilot program to teach young drivers defensive driving skills. The Citrus County Sheriff's Office and the Citrus County School Board are partnering to bring the program annually to more than 900 Citrus County high school students beginning Spring 2008.

"It's a very emotional issue for a lot of people on that board," Dawsy said.
The task force was formed over the summer when two Citrus High School graduates died in a car accident.
Sgt. Joe Palminteri, who is heading the Teen Driver Challenge,
has said that most teenage car crashes are from teenagers who veer off the road and then overcorrect to get the car back on track. That was the case with

The sheriff's office hosted a successful pilot program this summer, which is being used as a model for the school program.
Jonny Bishop, who is the Citrus County School District's coordinator of special programs, expects about 950 students will have the opportunity to opt for the course each year.

The program will not replace driver education programs the school district offers during the summer. Driver's education teaches students rules of the road, sign identification and basic instructions for handling a vehicle.

adding any new staff members to run the program, Dawsy said.
Instead, he is shuffling staff to accommodate the class. Because the work on the driving range will be during the school day, a substitute teacher will be assigned to the students to supervise them throughout the day.
While there has been no funding to support the program yet, Dawsy said they are working to secure a grant to pay for textbooks and T-shirts.

When Citrus County Sheriff's Office deputies arrived at an Inverness residence Saturday, they found "blood spread on the tile floor and broken glass on the floor," according to the arrest report.
Dennis Gene Himmel, 21, was arrested at 8:05 a.m. on a misdemanor charge of domestic battery He is being held without bond. Himmel is the
son of Citrus County Schools Superintendent Sandra "Sam" Himmel.
Himmel and a 25-year-old man from Tallahassee were involved in a physical fight Saturday morning. The man told deputies the fight started during breakfast. Himmel yelled at his father while everyone was eating and the man asked Himmel to stop yelling, according to the arrest report.
Then, Himmel approached the man, the man stood up and Himmel hit him, the man further states in the report.
is being held without bond.
Himmel tackled the man to the ground, placed him in a head-lock and choked him, according to the report At one point during the fight, the man hit Himmel in the mouth and split Himmel's lip. Himmel's father and three other witnesses broke up the fight. They pulled Himmel off the man, took him outside and locked Himmel out of the house, according to the report. The man told deputies Himmel "yelled, cussed and broke objects on the floor" before he was locked outside the residence.
Himmel "then entered the residence through an unsecured window and attempted to continue to fight" with the man, according to the report. Himmel's father and three other witnesses were able to hold Himmel on the ground until deputies arrived.
Both Himmel and the man refused medical services. Five witnesses supported the man's statement and deputies determined Himmel was the primary aggressor.
Himmel was arrested in August on charges of felony domestic battery and criminal mischief. He was sentenced to three years' drug offender probation after pleading no contest to felony criminal mischief. Under the plea agrre-ment, prosecutors dropped the battery charge. ,

service now, it seems appropriate to move forward with a formal merger," he wrote.
Just a month ago the council voted 3-2 to negotiate a contract with the Citrus County Sheriff's Office for law enforcement duties in Crystal River. Houston said that takeover should be in place by Feb. 1.
The city council in June voted to seek a fire proposal from the county. Houston said the county's Department of Public Safety responded in October. The proposal includes:
CRFD would become a district within the Citrus County Fire Rescue Department (CCFRD); Crystal River taxpayers would be assessed the same fire millage as anyone else in the county.
The city would transfer ownership of CRFD equipment to the county. The county would assume responsibility for replacing equipment
The county would assume ownership of the fire station and be responsible for maintenance.
Current CRFD staff would transfer to the county fire service, with the position of chief being reclassified to district captain.
Additionally, Houston said
the county would waive certain basic-training requirements for Crystal River volunteer firefighters who transfer to the county service.
"It is hoped that this action will create a greater incentive for current volunteers with the CRFD to transfer to active duty with the CCFRD and thus support the premise of maintaining the same level of service and staffing at the Crystal River station," Houston wrote.
"This is a critical issue inasmuch as the nearest secondary response would come from a station located on Rock Crusher Road, should adequate response capability not be available from the Crystal River station," he added.

"I had no idea it was one of our kids," Ely said.

SILENCE
Continued from Page 1A
The Dynavox just happened to be a good fit for Caban. The center provides other services for the disabled such as employ-ability skills, job coaching and sign language interpretation.
Caban demonstrated how the machine works by punching a button on the touch screen.
"Drop me off at the store," the female voice said.
"It doesn't fit," the voice said as Caban pressed a different button.
"Something brown," the voice added, as Caban practiced how lo speak to a store clerk about clothing.
Caban's story began in Connecticut In the middle of living a normal life, she was knocked unconscious by a stroke. Caban, who is diabetic, had no warning symptoms. She spent two months in a coma. When she regained consciousness, her mother, Monserrate Arvello, asked her to communicate by moving her eyelids in response to questions.
The stroke paralyzed her right arm and leg and left her unable to speak words or sentences. Caban could understand what people were saying to her, but could not respond.
She cried when she could not speak to her 5-year-old granddaughter. Traveling to a grocery store alone was impossible if it meant communicating with store clerks. Caban lost her independence. She had been robbed of her ability to communicate.
Arvello moved the family from Connecticut to Citrus County to be closer to Arvello's three brothers. The three uncles of the stroke victim live here and wanted to help take care of her It was a generous gesture, and a loving one, but she felt helpless.
That's when the Center for Independent Living came into the picture. The center's sole purpose is to restore independence to people with disabilities. The center found a way to help her
But finding the center itself was not a calculated move. It was driven by the winds of fate.
Arvello was visiting the Citrus County Health Department one day when she overheard a man talking. He worked with people

with disabilities. She spoke to him about her daughter and he suggested she contact the Center for Independent Living in Lecanto.
Counselor Tommy. Boggs began researching ways to help Caban He tried sign language and standard computers. Neither worked because of her disabilities. Boggs remembered a man he had worked with five years earlier who used a primitive version of an assistive speech device and contacted him. Boggs decided the device was worth a try
Consumer Advocate Ginger Kerns, also with the center, contacted a Dynavox representative she knew and learned that Caban would need a prescription from a speech therapist before Medicaid would consider funding the $7,000 device. She carried Caban to Ocala Regional Hospital for the appointment The therapist recommended the top-of-the-line Dynavox. Caban was well qualified for it
Caban began working with the assistive speech device in September
"We still" have a long way to go," Boggs said.
When she is fully trained on the Dynavox, Caban will be able to program longer messages in the device to converse with family members and friends, including her 5-year-old granddaughter. Her granddaughter is excited about the prospect of interacting with her grandmother's new voice. The voice is that of a real person.
"She (her granddaughter)
QUICK FACTS
Marilyn Caban owns the Dynavox Vmax, a speech assistance device manufactured by Sentient Systems Technologies Inc. The Internet site is www.dynavoxtech.com.
The device is a programmable touchscreen computer that translates Caban's typed commands into spoken words. In Caban's case, the words are spoken by a woman.
The Center for Independent Living of North Central Florida, Citrus County Branch, worked with Caban to have Medicaid purchase the device for her. She obtained a prescription for the device from a speech specialist in Ocala.

Death
IVIurray Klein, 84
DELICATESSEN OWNER
NEW YORK Murray Klein, the public face of Zabar's whose marketing savvy transformed the Jewish delicatessen into an international food emporium and foodie haven, has died. He was 84.
Klein died of lung cancer on Thursday, Sandra Serrano, a manager who had worked with him for decades at the store on Manhattan's Upper West Side, said Friday.
As part owner with the Zabar family, Klein oversaw the store's merchandising, pricing and publicity for more than 30 years.
His trademark was selling high-end gourmet food, often imported from Europe, while still offering such Jewish staples as chopped liver, babkas and borscht.
The store attracted hordes of customers by selling selected fancy food items at steep discounts and by packaging high-quality staples like coffee beans and preserves under Zabar's own private label.
Klein was also instrumental in developing Zabar's housewares department, hanging baskets and kitchen gadgets from the ceiling of the store at Broadway and 80th Street.
Klein, who began his career at Zabar's as a stockman in 1953, was a constant presence on its sawdust covered floor.
An immigrant from the former Soviet Union, Klein retired from the store in 1994.

Dancing dogs bow and wow
The Washington Post
CHESAPEAKE BEACH, Md. 'Jingle Bells" blared from the stereo. Sam took a bow before the audience. Tucker waved and took off on a skateboard.
Then the two were spinning and kicking up their heels to the music. They le'pt as their jazzy dance ended and basked in the crowd's adulation.
But this was no ordinary recital: Sam and Tucker are dogs.
Sam, a standard poodle, and Tucker, a miniature longhaired dachshund, have been dancing professionally for nearly four years, said their Calvert County, Md., handlers, Lynn Franklin of Sunderland and Joan Rose of Owings. This was the dogs' first Calvert show, at the Northeast Community Center in Chesapeake Beach.
"It is a lot of fun," Franklin said. "They think it is play." Her poodle has an award for heroism for rescuing her family from a house fire.
Rose, wearing a cream-colored sweater with a faux-fur collar, red pants and black and white wingtip jazz shoes for the performance, said Tucker was a Christmas gift from her husband. She said she noticed how receptive the dog was when learning tricks. That led to music to "pep this up," and the act continued to evolve when she met Franklin, who was wearing a matching outfit for Tuesday's show.
The dancing dogs the Boogie Woogie BowWows have many gold medals, canine freestyle titles and trophies from their days on the competitive circuit, but now they're professional. They just returned from a World of Pets Expo in Massachusetts and have traveled along the East Coast They have been invited to perform in a countrywide dog variety show and on a European tour next year, along with other appearances. They are paid only travel expenses, Rose said.
"It is our pleasure to go and support their cause. That is our goal ... to bring theater, pets and fun to people," she said.
When Tuesday's show began, Franklin and Sam gazed into

each other's eyes as "Feliz Navidad" started to play. Franklin pulled a chicken-flavored treat from her mouth and passed it to Sam. Then they were off, doing their version of a samba,
Canine freestyle, or dancing with dogs, has been growing on the pet sports scene since 1989, said Patie Ventre, founder of the Worldwide Canine Freestyle Organization. There are 1,500 registered members and competitors and nearly 4,000 others who bounce in and out of the group, depending on shows and contests in their areas.
In an average month, there could be up to five competitive events and a-dozen demonstrations, workshops or live video competitions, Ventre said.
"I can honestly say there isn't a weekend in this world where someone isn't dancing with their dog somewhere," said Ventre, who hopes canine freestyle will one day be an Olympic sport

Veterans
Citrus County (FL) Chronicle
Local veterans' health care has come a long way
Just two days ago, we commemorated the attack on Pearl Harbor and after 56 years of military men and women taking the call to arms in Korea, Vietnam, the "Cold War," the Cuban Crisis, Desert Storm and the ramifications of 9/11, we veterans continue to grow in numbers. With the conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan continuing to send home more and more wounded and servicemen and ser-vicewomen leaving the military and becoming veterans, many of us have asked "how is this going to affect the veterans health care system?" It goes without saying that it will greatly increase the number of those eligible to enroll in the system. The South Georgia/North Florida VA. Health Care System has assured us that they are gearing up to handle the increased load, and that is very apparent in what we have seen at our local Lecanto VA clinic.
Having been a survivor of the end of Korea, the Cold War and beginning of Vietnam, I had the opportunity to become one of the charter applicants for the Inverness VA. Community-Based Outpatient Clinic that opened in July 2000. At that time, it operated in a 5,000-square-foot building with two doctors, an ARNP a shared nursing staff and one lab technician. It
Larry MacMillan VETERAN'S
took as much as six months to get an appointment, and as the patient load continued to grow, it was extended to a year before a patient could get an initial appointment. Overworked and understaffed was the problem as the system was opened to all veterans in eight classifications, with priorities going to service-connected medical problems.
The medical staff was increased during the first few years of operation and picked up more space in the same complex before it was realized that a new clinic was the only answer to offering services to cover 28,000 local veter-
[W ^Through the efforts of
local veterans organizations, lobbying national and state legislators and the Citrus County Commission, the dream of a new Lecanto VA. clinic became a reality with the purchase of the Citrus County Resource Center. The VA. CBOC was the first tenant leasing 9,999 square feet and remodeling the former hospital to accommodate the increased staff and services offered on an outpatient basis. In seven years of operation, the staff has grown to six full-time doctors with another due to come on board shortly. There is a full-time psychiatrist, psychologist and social worker to take care of any men-
tal health problems the veteran may have, such as post traumatic stress disorder. There are three lab technicians to take care of semi-annual blood work, and they are good at what they do. Have you noticed that there is little or no. waiting beyond your appointment time? Try that at your local doctors' office, who is usually running behind due to walk-ins or scheduling too many patients at the same time. I have yet to hear complaints about long waits or concerns about how the doctors are caring for their health. You can't beat the prescription drug plan.
David Gilmer, medical administration officer at the Lecanto Clinic, started as a nurse in the Inverness Clinic when it opened and has seen the amazing transformation, from the beginning, that has taken place over this seven-year period. I spent a half hour with him on my last appointment going over the history of veterans care in Citrus County. He oversees applications for enrollment and current census of patient load. He surprised me with the time period of 30 days in which new enrollees will have their first appointment. No more six months to a year waiting period. The clinic now has 6,100 patients enrolled for local care and 2,000 more transient, winter residents, nonenrollees that visit the clinic. Thus far, there have only been approximately 100 additional enrollees from the Iraqi Afghanistan conflict. For any informa-
tion as to eligibility and enrollment procedures, feel free to call David Gilmer at 746-8000. Any disability eligibility questions should be directed to County Veterans Service Officer J. J. Kenney and his staff at the Citrus County Resource Center next to the Lecanto VA clinic. Phone his office for an appointment at 527-5915. They are currently handling more than 3,000 inquiries per month and have ready access to the necessary records to verify your eligibility.
With the large veteran population in Citrus County, there are many retirees who are treated at local military hospitals or have their own medical plan that is supplemented by the Department of Defense. Returning military personnel who have serious injuries that are long-term recovery situations will continue to be taken care of by the military. More than 1,300 Florida wounded have returned to the states to recover. Then, there is the long road to rehabilitation and possibly a whole new lifestyle from what they left behind. We have lost more than 170 Floridians who gave their all. The least Congress and the Senate can do is give our veterans the funding to support and insure the health care they have earned and deserve.
And consider, one in four homeless throughout the country are veterans, and this ratio is growing. Local veterans organizations and the Homeless Coalition are doing all they can to
assist them. Just this month, there was1 n a Homeless Veterans Stand DowrK offering haircuts, medical care, foocfc* and clothing, as well as information-*1 and counseling as to where they carr>i get further assistance. Currently, Bill^! and Nancy Geden, who are operating the Citrus County Veterans Coalition;;' Veterans Food Bank, are servicing 46 s families. This is particularly import", tant during this holiday season. Youia.j assistance in this effort would be^ deeply appreciated. The Coalition; wants to thank KWVA Post 192 for' their most recent contribution. The. Coalition is also looking for clothing,, furniture and appliances. For contact information, go to www.ccvcfl.org in"~ the directory link. -

Let's/1' bring our troops home honorably1''' Don't blame them for any disagree11-ment you may have with this war -W n blame the politicians and pray they-" bring them home with honor, for they' i are our heroes of this most recent? ] threat against the United States. leri

Cmdr. Martin P. Murphy and The Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Chapter 70, in coordination with the Superintendent "Sam" Himmel of the Citrus County School District, have become an official Cell Phone for Soldiers Drop-Off Site. This program was started by two teenagers to help buy pre-paid calling cards to send to our service people overseas. For each cell phone that is donated, 72 minutes of talk time is given to our troops to call their loved ones back home. It is a great program, and we would really appreciate the community's involvement.
The program will accept any make or model phone. You may drop off phones and attached batteries as well as accessories at any Citrus County School or the DAV at North Independence Highway and U.S. 41 North. The phones are then recycled for cash to purchase cards or unlimited free video phone calls. If you have any questions regarding this program, call Annamarie Perrigo at the DAV at 344-3464 on Tuesdays or Thursdays between 9 and 11 a.m., or 344-5675.

CCVC receives Veterans Food Bank donation
special to the chronicle
Ray Michael, chairman of the Citrus County Veterans Coalition, received a check for $177 for the Veterans Food Bank from Nevell Anderson, director, Korean War Veterans Association 172.
One of the major projects of the Citrus County Veterans Coalition is geared toward assisting homeless veterans and veterans' families that are in need of food assistance. Funding comes solely from contributions to the CCVC and fundraiser activities such as the recent Veterans Forum. Several Veterans' Organizations have been assisting by contributing money. The Veterans Coalition asks that all veterans and organizations think about helping in the Coalitions' philosophy of veterans helping veterans.
Charter members Bill and Nancy Geden have done an outstanding job overseeing and operating the CCVC Operation Veterans Food Bank. Early in the program, the Coalition went through all the necessary requirements to become eligi-

The need continues to grow and the Food Bank is now serving 46 families.

get a three-country railpass for free
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. If you treat yourself to a premier-class ticket on the Eurostar train, Rail Europe will throw in a three-country five-day rail pass for free.
The offer can only be booked online at www.raileurope.com while supplies last. Tickets must be purchased by Dec. 31, and the Eurostar and rail pass must also be issued to the same person.
The rail pass, good for travel in France, Italy and the Benelux countries (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg), is a "flexipass," meaning that travel days need not be consecutive as long as they take place by the end of February.
planning ahead for spring break?
CHICAGO Maybe your plans for the holidays are all set and you're looking ahead to spring break.
Well, according to some folks, you're already too late.
A survey of 217 Carlson Wagonlit travel agents asked "When should spring break travelers book vacations to lock in best value?"
The survey, conducted Oct. 31 to Nov. 9, found that 53 percent said, "They should have done so a month ago or earlier."
Only 2 percent said spring break planners looking for value have
until the end of December.
A second survey of 205 Carlson Wagonlit agents conducted Nov. 9 to 26 asked when travelers ought to be booking for summer vacations to lock in best value.

WASHINGTON If you're planning on traveling or studying abroad, check out Glimpse magazine www.glimpse.org which is geared to college students and young adults interested in international issues.
"We publish articles written by students living abroad to get at real life, rather than tourist attractions or news stories," said editor-in-chief Kerala Goodkin, who co-founded the magazine five years ago with a friend, Nick Fitzhugh. "We're trying to provide a cultural context to current events in the world."
The quarterly magazine's motto is "Real Life Abroad." It is published by an independent foundation, but is largely supported by the National Geographic Society. Its editorial offices are located in the society's Washington headquarters.

iAR visits vets in nursing home
Special To the Chronicle
On Nov. 28, members of the Withlacoochee Chapter Sons of the American Revolution and members of the chapter's Ladies Auxiliary traveled to the Baldomero Lopez Veterans Nursing Home in Land 0' Lakes to deliver Christmas gifts to the residents. The Baldomero Lopez Veterans Nursing Home is the residence for about 135 veterans, male and female, and is one of seven veterans nursing homes administered by the State of Florida. The veterans' home was named for Baldomero Lopez, a native of Tampa, who graduated Annapolis Naval Academy and entered the United States Marine Corp as a Lieutenant. He was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously for valor during the Korean War. The Congressional Medal is displayed in the nursing home.
William Teater, the SAR Chapter's Veteran's Affairs chairman, coordinated the chapter's Christmas gift activity with Susan Poynter, who is the activity director for the home. Susan furnishes Chairman Teater with a list of residents who have no immediate family and would not receive gifts at Christmas. In addition she also provides a

Chapter.
The gifts delivered by the SAR chapter were in excess of $4,000 and consisted of $750.00 in quarters that are used as prize money for the bingo games for the veterans, clothing, toilet articles, quilted lap

Runners ring in Jingle Bell 5K
Stephens, Vilardieach winners at Inverness run
Larry Bugg For the Chronicle
Lee Stephens was out of shape.
Sheri Vilardi was running through a hamstring injury.
Ah, but the weather outside was delightful and those plaques and medals were also so delightful.
So Stephens and Vilardi ran and won the 2007
Jingle Bell 5K Run overall men's and women's titles, respectively, Saturday at Wallace Brooks Park.
Stephens, a Tampa resident, won with a time of 17:16. Ocala's Kevin Sweeny was second with an 18:15 and very impressed with Stephens' speed.
Stephens, however, didn't give the normal answer when asked how he felt after crossing the finish line.
"Horrible," said Stephens. "I am out of shape. I couldn't go any faster-. I had a foot injury the week of Thanksgiving. I haven't been training since then the way 1 should be. I feel miserable. The time is my slowest in years."
Sweeney was a bit more complimentary of his own performance.
"I did okay," said Sweeney. "I have been marathon training. I haven't done any speed. With the heat and the hills, that was a tough course out there today. The guy who won (Stephens), that's a great time for the course today. I ran the Chicago marathon and I am real happy with what I did today. I didn't expect it."
Vilardi, 36, said she had a hamstring problem earlier this week. Despite that, the Citrus Springs resident ran a 19:53 to win the

Battle of unbeatens goes to Lecanto
Panthers boys down Wildwood 66-52
Larry Bugg For the Chronicle
The previously unbeaten Wildwood High boys basketball jumped out to a 7-1 lead over the also unbeaten Lecanto High team in the first quarter.
Lecanto coach Chris Nichols called a timeout with the game just two minutes old.
That timeout worked for the Panthers, who
improved to 7-0 overall following a 66-52 victory over the Wildcats.
Lecanto outscored the very athletic
Wildcats (5-1 overall), 16-14, in the opening period with Victor and Nick Cortes each scoring six points apiece. Wildwood's Demetrice McCray led his team with seven points and Tadrain Williams blocked three Panther shots.
In the second quarter, Victor Cortes hit six more points and the Panthers outscored the Wildcats 17-5 to give Lecanto a 33-19 halftime lead.
The second quarter put Wildwood in a hole it would never climb out of.
The third quarter was a 16-16 draw. Lecanto's Elijah Bradley hit 10 points. Wildwood's McCray and Derrick Williams both hit six points.
The fourth quarter was also a 17-17 draw. Bradley had six points to lead the Panthers. McCray had nine points.
McCray led all scorers with 25 points and seven rebounds. Tadrain Williams had three blocked shot and three rebounds.
Victor Cortes led the Panthers with 19 points. Bradley had 17 points, four rebounds and a blocked shot. Nick Cortes had 13 points.
"I think our team is the most well-conditioned team around here," said Victor Cortes. "I think our style of play is going to wear teams down. In the second quarter, Wildwood just got worn down. In the first quarter, every game is real close but after that we explode in the second, third quarter. Wildwood is a solid team. Demetrice

McCray is a good player. This was our first test. I think it was our first challenge."
Despite the 14-point margin of victory, Nichols was glad to defeat a quality team.
"That (Wildwood) was a quality team," said Nichols. "Athletic, they came in averaging 46 rebounds per game. I thought they came out, hit us right between the eyes.
"Our guys adjusted and got ourselves back in the ball game. I thought we executed our press. I thought we executed offensively. I thought we had big games out of Victor, Nick, Stephen (Buckley), Stephen Quinn, Elijah and Eric Pugh."
Nichols was alos impressed with his team's defensive intensity.
"I thought that we did a good job defensively. We had a nice run. We outscored them 17-5. We started making some plays. Elijah started making some plays. We played solid offensively. Maybe, they got a little
cold, Once, we saw that McCray was their guy, we just kind of had to help off him and limit their others. They didn't have a shooter other than him, He hit a couple of threes. We did a good job of doubling off him. I think the press didn't get a lot of steals but I think that wears on the other team."
The Wildwood coach knew his team' had problems with sloppy shooting especially in the second quarter.
"I think we took some ill-advised shots," said Wildwood coach Von Moreland. "They were shots that were not in our repertoire. We need to maybe be a little more patient and that our best asset is to get the ball inside or take the ball to the basket. We had bad shot selection."
Moreland went on to praise his own team's effort and the skill of the Lecanto squad.
"We played hard, Moreland said. "We have to play smart and not make the little mental mistakes.
"They (Lecanto) are a real good team. They will have a real good season. We were glad we could come over and play them."

women's race. The nearest female was Shelby Blass of Ocala. She ran a 22:52.
"I pulled a hamstring earlier in the week," Vilardi said. "Now, I am (having problems with the hamstring). I felt great going out with the men. I wanted to do well. It was good. It was hot. I didn't recognize any of the kids. I'm glad I can still walk This (victory) is my second. I try every other year. We are training for the Disney Half (Marathon) on Jan. 12. I probably made a mistake running today."
Crystal River's Thom Neal was the top men's masters runner with an 18:52 time.
Beverly Hills's Marjolein Baas was the top masters female runner with a time of 21:24.
Dunnellon's Danny Stevens Sr. made the race a comeback competition for himself. The 54-year-old triathlete has avoided running for four years due to injury. He has been competing in bicycle races but this marked his return to running. When he stopped racing, he was ranked third nationally in his age group.
"I ran the Crystal River
Triathlon four years ago," he said. "I am glad to be back It was hot. I want to be competitive if I do triathlons. I like it hot. I love the heat. We have been doing 24 hour bike races. I have to be able to do build up the heart muscle."
Another Dunnellon resident liked the way he felt after the race.
"I'm happy," said Todd Fitzgerald. "I'm in the offseason. I was really happy. I have a collegiate nationals (triathlon). I get to caveman training. I am looking forward to starting training in January. I don't think the heat was a major factor today."
There were 152 runners starting the race and race director Chris Moling had plenty to be happy about
"It's (the race) become a standard 'here in Inverness," said Moling. "It is running before the Christmas Parade and these athletes get to run before thousands of spectators. It's a safe course. It's a fun course. Everybody has a great time. We had perfect weather. We had a great turnout. All things turned out to be perfect. Lee Stephens, a first class athlete, came out here, wasn't even in shape and won this. Sheri Vilardi was nursing an injury and she still pulled it off."

Today in
Today is Sunday, Dec. 9, the 343rd day of 2007. There are 22 days left in the year.
Today's Highlight in History:
On Dec. 9, 1854, Alfred, Lord Tennyson's famous poem, "The Charge of the Light Brigade," was published in England.
On this date:
In 1940, British troops opened .their first major offensive in North Africa during World War II.
In 1941, China declared war on Japan, Germany and Italy.
In 1982, special Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski died at his Wimberly, Texas, ranch at age 77:
In 1987, the first Palestinian intefadeh, or uprising, began as riots broke out in Gaza and spread to the West Bank, triggering a strong Israeli counter-response.
In 1992, Britain's Prince Charles and Princess Diana announced their separation. (The couple's divorce became final Aug. 28,1996.)
Ten years ago: Confronting her critics, Attorney General Janet Reno traded testy remarks with Republicans on a House investigating committee as she defended her decision not to seek an independent counsel for fundraising calls made by President Clinton and Vice President Al Gore.
Five years ago: Senate Republican leader Trent Lott apologized for remarks he'd made praising the 1948 presidential run of then-segregationist Strom Thurmond, saying, "A poor choice of words conveyed to some the impression that I embraced the discarded policies of the past."
One year ago: Discovery lighted up the sky in the first nighttime space shuttle launch in four years. A fire broke out at a Moscow drug treatment hospital, killing 45 women trapped by barred windows and a locked gate. Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith won the Heisman Trophy.
Today's Birthdays: Actor Kirk Douglas is 91. Actress Dina Merrill is 82. Actor Dick Van Patten is 79. Actor-writer Buck Henry is 77. Actress Dame Judi Dench is 73. Actor Beau Bridges is 66. Jazz singer-musician Dan Hicks is 66. Football Hall-of-Famer Dick Butkus is 65. Actor Michael Nouri is 62. Former Sen. Thomas Daschle, D-S.D., is 60. Actor John Malkovich is 54. Singer/game show host Donny Osmond is 50. Rock singer-musician Jakob Dylan (Wallflowers) is 38.
Thought for Today: "Hatred comes from the heart; contempt from the head; and neither feeling is quite within our control." Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher (1788-1860).

An ARM and a leg
Expansion of manatee habitat is necessary
Special to the Chronicle
Congratulations to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the governor for not down-listing the manatee. These creatures are vital .to Crystal River. There is still much more work to be done to insure survivability of the species and optimum coexistence .with man.
It seems logical that the FWC and U.S. Fish and Wildlife should adopt the same classification scheme as the World
Conservation Union. VOI This should be the same criteria and the same nomenclature. Only a third party with no political connections or economic interests should make the decisions regarding these animals.
Dr. K.C. Nayfield
with virtually all endangered species is habitat destruction due to development or pollution. We need to purchase more environmentally sensitive lands to give these animals a place to live forever.
We can also expand areas where manatees can live by cleaning up our coastal waters. Getting rid of pollution through more stringent laws and proper environmental engineering would help accomplish this as well as provide healthy vegetation as a food supply. Certain areas might quality 5ES for dredging to expand habitat as was done at the Blue Water site on the Homosassa. Apparently, this is working well and manatees are starting to frequent the area. It would be like keeping manatees away from boaters
away from manatees.
We need to reevaluate our spending regarding the manatee, as well. The budgets from the organizations are rumored to run more than $6 million per year. Manatees, for the most part, have been studied enough and it is time to do something.
With cutbacks in federal, state and local budgets, a good burden of the funding is going to fall on the shoulders of those who care. We should encourage support to the Save the Manatee Club and manatee license plate program.
It would also be wonderful if the very wealthy would find it in their hearts to donate much larger sums to the cause. Maybe it is time to give back a little to Florida.
Hey, Jimmy Buffett! How about taking some money from Margaritaville and sending it to Manateeville?

AMhe facts fit to be twisted
One of the most difficult parts of being involved in the newspaper business is to understand that everyone has the right to an opinion, even if that opinion is exactly the opposite of how you might view the world.
Take, for instance, the correspondence I received this past week from a gentle reader in the Dunnellon area. He started off with that age-old question: "Are you an idiot?"
The reader said that I was a Bolshevik because our sports section published a story that suggested that Arkansas' Darren McFadden had a good chance of getting the Heisman Trophy. "We have a dog in this fight Tim Tebow," the gentle reader said.
How dare we publish a story that suggested that anyone other than Tebow could win college football's top honor?
The letter concluded: "I wish you would take your U.N. agenda and go back up north."
I didn't know the U.N. had an opinion about who should win the Heisman.
We shall be more careful about that in the future.

Discouraging insurance prognosis
The last time I saw my doctor, he indicated the outlook was bleak No words of encouragement. There was no reason to think his office would start accepting my company's insurance.
I said it makes sense for me to see a doc in our plan. We shook hands and off I went.
With hope that things might have changed, this past week I decided to check again before going doctor shopping. A bunch of doctors around town recently signed onto our insurance plan, so I was hopeful my doctor's office of the past several years might be in reconsideration mode. Wrong.
On Wednesday, I had a conversation with the office manager of my doctor's office (technically and, I guess officially, now ex-doctor's office), which left my face red and blood pressure high.
During my inquiry last spring, the doctor told me insurance was a matter for the office manager.
When I spoke with the office manager this past week, I was told the doctors make such decisions.
Recap: Doctor says talk to office manager Office manager says doctors make the decisions.
That got the blood pressure on the rise.

Don't upcharge customers for government TV
We think it's a bad idea that the Bright House cable company is taking away its coverage of local government from those customers who subscribe to basic cable in Citrus County.
As reported last week in the Chronicle, Bright House, which serves more than 30,000 households in Citrus County, plans to move the local government access channel to a digital tier and charge an additional $1 a month.
That's a bad deal for consumers, and we urge the county commission to intervene.
The government channel broadcasts live meeting coverage of the county commission, and city council meetings in Inverness and Crystal River. It also broadcasts the proceedings in county court and from other civic and community events.
It's an easy'way for citizens to tune into what's going on with local government.
Bright House says it must move the government channel because it's converting to a fully digital system. While it's only a buck, and Bright House is offering an additional 16 channels as part of this modified tier, we still
THE ISSUE:
Taking public access off of basic cable.
OUR OPINION:
County should block the move.
think it's a bad practice to say customers who can only afford basic service can no longer watch their government in action.
Citrus County has a lot of senior citizens who can't get out of the house and attend public meetings. And many of them are on a fixed income and can't afford anything but the basic level of cable service. County government gives the franchise to Bright House so it can sell its service in Citrus County. In both Tampa and St. Petersburg, local government has responded to similar Bright House moves by threatening lawsuits to stop the effort to move these local-access stations off the basic cable package.
Citrus County should investigate what actions it can take to stop this from happening. Many families in Citrus County pay more than $100 a month for their combined cable and Internet service. The Bright House change won't impact them at all.
But the households that can least afford higher costs are the ones that will no longer have the opportunity to watch their local government in action. That should not happen.
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:

Scary movies
I'm calling in reference to the teen drivers. I, too, have a teen driver who's 15 years old and I am very strict with the issue of the cell phone use. I do not let him pick up his cell phone when it rings and I tell him he is not going to talk on the cell phone while he is driving. Also, I think that I'm in my 40s I think that they should bring back driver's ed. Those movies in driver's ed scared the you-know-what out of me. Even my husband, who is in his 40s, remembers those movies to these days, where you see the injuries, you hear the injuries. They were awful and that might scare some of these kids into driving safer, as well. Please look into having the driver's ed put back into high school, just like we

Thank you to a good person. While shopping at the Food Ranch in Inglis one Saturday, I was in line waiting to be checked out. There was a wonderful woman ahead of me and after she checked things out, she had the cashier run my few items up on hers. I immediately said, "Oh, that's my shopping." This kind person ahead of me said, "Oh, that's all right, I'll take care of that." I felt bad, as I was ready to pay for my own. This kind lady said to me, "Merry Christmas," with that sweet smile at me. I know I wish I had gotten her name. Wish she would read this article and send me her name.

Governing codes
Out of all issues or situations needing attentiveness for Citrus County commissioners, one might wonder why it was necessary to publish a performance and pay raise of an appointed administrator.
Perhaps commissioners didn't read Administration Regulation 7.18-2,3 and 4. Obviously, the administrator did not read them. These governing codes explain employee relations concerning random testing and reasonable suspicion guidelines, for administrator and county commissioners, to obtain ruled responsiveness to possible drinking problems of those employed.
Are we to believe there was no problem with any employee regarding alcoholism and what of those legal documents supporting these issues? Are these aftermath statements actual false accusations in supportive decision to firing of an administrative assistant? Now are we expected to sponsor false accusations, inactions of elected and appointed governmental officials to serious community safety issues, while believing these behaviors constitute a raise and the acclamation of efficiency?
This board needs to respond to their inactions to Administration

Regulation 7.18-2, 3 and 4. Citrus County community deserves explanation to the character of elected and appointed governmental leadership and issues of safety for our community. Citrus County has a right to expect clear and responsive declaration to formal issues, answers to false reporting and point of fact disregards of important safety factors, failure of comprehension/execution to governmental codes and publicly announcing acceptance to circumstances that lead a community into false conformations.
Perhaps the recent publication of this administrative raise and board satisfaction of performance utilization, might be a good clipping for another position elsewhere, but for Citrus County, many don't believe it would make a good item for a resume.

In hard economic times such as I these, many people are looking for ways to help others as well as themselves. They fail to realize the solution is a simple one shop locally. When residents of Citrus County shop at businesses owned by other resiJ dents, their money stays in Citrus, unlike when they shop at a franchise and the money is sent to other cities and even other countries.
When was the last time the CEO of Wal-Mart ate at your restaurant, or had their hair cut at your salon? Every dollar you spend at a local restaurant, grocery store or hardware store is a dollar toward improving your community and helping your neighbors.
If you are thinking, "I don't own,a business. This doesn't help me," you are wrong. You are most likely employed by a small business. What happens to you if your boss can't afford to employ you anymore? Your spending habits have far-reaching consequences.

It's a good thii|ig she has talents other than sewing
Recently, I was searching the house, going through storage bins v^and dresser drawers, looking &*for some old service pins. I never found the pins, but I did ''find something that warmed the cockles of my heart. I found a "sampler." According to Mr. Webster, a sampler is a piece of decora-usiitive needlework typically hav-w ing letters or verses embroidered in various stitches as an ! "example of the seamstress' 9^ skill.
9i''l I've seen some beautiful
samplers. Quite often, this sort of artwork is displayed in the antique shops my sweetheart likes for us to visit. I've admired the skill evident in such works and have imagined young ladies of long ago trying to impress potential husbands.
But the sampler I found was something else altogether.
Fred Brannen A SLICE OF LIFE
from an old pair of blue jeans.
The edges of the cloth were frayed and the needlework was done in pink thread, using very basic block letters. There was absolutely no hint of skill. But the letters spelled out, "Dad, I love you, Becky." I read the message and took a mental trip back more than 30 years ago to
It was a piece of denim cut when 6-year-old Becky used
whatever material she could find and worked very hard to declare her feelings for me. In seconds, my mind took a tour through time with her being a little girl, a young lady, and now, a wife and mother.
My heart was warmed beyond measure in recalling that the relationship I have with my second daughter has never wavered. I never felt the bite of an "I hate you!" which is so often the frustrated cry of an adolescent trying to get through the growing-up years.
I also rejoiced that times have changed.
Becky has had options other than marketing herself as a mate based on her skills as a seamstress. She chose a path that carried her through college and into a career in the business of banking. Nowadays, she is a full-time mommy granddaughter Emily and grandson Eric put her through her paces on a daily basis. But if the time comes, there's no doubt she'll be able to step back into the role of a highly trained, well-
qualified professional.
Yes, I'm very glad Becky's opportunities were greater than those of her great-great-grandmothers. If she'd lived 150 years ago and been relying on her needlework to land a husband, even though it is immensely precious to me, based on the sampler I found, she would have been an old maid!

And why, when you try to talk to the staff of any doctor, do they kind of get angry with you because you're taking up their time? I'd like somebody to tell me, why is that?

Self-centered driver
Reading my Tuesday, Nov. [ _,.27's Sound Off, there's an article from "Millions for minutes." This gentleman wants to know why we are going to spend millions of dollars to extend the Parkway 2 because it would If ,-pnly save him five minutes. VfAnd he wants to know why are '" we going to spend millions of ^dollars to save him five min-0utes? Who is he? Is he the only 'one in the world? Is he only interested in that which affects him? The fact that someone else may be saving a lot of icj'utime, he doesn't much care about. He cares only about himself. These people should not be so self-centered and should realize they have neighbors.
Double exemption
, I am calling in regard to the "Tax relief" in the Sound Off of Monday. Nov. 26. You are right that the doubling of the homestead exemption to $50,000 is sjgoing to help those people ?,twhose assessment is over
$50,000, but not help some-i ,one with a $49,000 assessment. The doubling will only be for the amount over $50,000 assessed. The assessed ^amount between $25,000 and $50,000 will not be affected. It does not say the first $50,000' assessment. We now have a .state law allowing counties to /^homestead the first $50,000, which some counties have !.,done, but our county commission has failed to give that relief to the people of Citrus ''County.
Too much greed
To all you illegal immigrants -who think that the United States of America is the best place to live: Well, you people are used to living with junk, ^pollution and everything else. Well, the United States of America is a disgrace. They '-'ought to be ashamed of them-'selves. Everything that you pick up today, if it says "Made in the USA," it says "Imported materials"...The United States of America is the greediest
bit -ji
country going and they're selling us citizens down. They don't care about us. They don't care whether we eat poison. They don't care whether our children get poisoned. They don't care about us. All they want is money, money, money. Shame, shame, shame on the United States of America. You're a disgrace.
Growth pains
According to the media, our county is XJOIU looking at about $300 million, more or less, in the near future for new schools, county buildings, libraries, etc. All of this is to meet the needs of the recent growth and for the near-term future growth. Now to pay for that, I've heard no one say anything about how they're going to get the money. But the one tax that is designed to fairly distribute that tax to pay for growth is the impact fee. And now there are county politicians wanting to reduce or probably eliminate the impact fees.
Total restructure
The person who called in on the "Endless roadwork" for (County Road) 486 made the comment, "After all, it only took five years to repave State Road 200." Repaving and building a four-lane highway with lots of driveways, and into the school, and two huge intersections,-!^ not repaving.*lt's totally taking everything down and doing it over. Taking land down, putting light poles up, driveways in...He has no clue. Repaving (S.R.) 200 took five years and they've done all this. By the way, it's only been three-and-a-half years, but it will be four next year. So we really think they're doing a wonderful job. We live off (CR.) 486.
Taxes, insurance
People, listen up. It is not the impact fees. Go to Hillsborough County their impact fees are double what we have. The truth is, it's taxes and insurance, taxes and insurance I repeat, taxes and insurance. It's the state of Florida having the problem. The rest of the country is doing great. Taxes and insurance. Charlie Crist, you told us you'd help us.
Speak English
In reply to the veteran in Sunday's paper: This is America (with) freedom of press, religion and so on. So I say praise the Lord that someone else feels the way we do. My family was from Wales and Ireland and they came here legally that's the key word. When I was growing up, we were taught English that was what our parents learned. Our school taught us English that's right, you guessed it. I've had family in about every war there was going back to the Civil War, and they fought for this country, the United States of America. Call your congressperson and tell them that English is our language. This isn't Mexico, Hispaniola or Spain. Let the immigrants who are illegal go back from where they came from all of them. Their children are not American citizens because they were born here...Last time I remember, if a child was born in this country, he had to wait until they were 21 to decide what country they wanted to take citizenship in. We're not prejudiced, but right is right, and wrong is wrong.
Water worry
To the person complaining about the water police putting the yellow stickers on the doorknobs for those people who are violating our water restrictions: If you're not watering illegally, you have nothing to worry about.
HOME AUCTION'.
Associated Press
A home is advertised for sale in August at a foreclosure auction in Pasadena, Calif, in this September file photo.

Why individual freedom cannot be legislated
Some of our more progressive citizens believe capitalism has fostered persistent and unacceptable inequalities among Americans. They also appear to believe that basic human behavior can be overcome through legislation.
They hope to legislate a world free of hunger, physical wants and violence.
There would be clean drinking water, vaccinations and health care for all.
Education would be free and readily available. There would be no underclass, living in squalor and fearing for the lives of their children. Government would distribute wealth and enforce the peace.
In such a legislated world, they believe people would be more attuned to the environment and the needs of other species. The scarring and rap-
ing of the planet to get at its buried minerals and oil would be limited. Rain forests would no longer need to be cut and burned to provide subsistence to native peoples.
There would be no need to pollute our oceans and rivers in Oil this managed econo- VOi my. -
These are noble aspirations, indeed. And much support for them is to be found in the teachings of the Bible. Jesus spoke against the accumulation of wealth as life's goal. In the "eye of a needle" parable, he proclaimed that a rich man had little chance of entering Heaven. We were commanded to share our wealth and to alleviate the suffering of the poor
Dr. William Dixon
But government-sponsored wealth sharing recommended by our progressive friends has been tried time and again without even one instance of success.
Whether it be the brutal communism of China and the old 1ER USSR or the soft DES socialism of Western
- Europe, none has
created a classless society and none has created the promised abundance.
In all, there remain pockets of poverty, criminal activities and violence.
Government regulators become the new "ruling class," entitled to more individual wealth than the citizens. National debt is always higher and productivity lower in the
"social democracies," as is the standard of living of the average citizen. Jobs are scarce. Advancement and success in general are all tied to political and social connections rather than individual effort
Opportunities are not equal for all.
Coerced wealth sharing doesn't work because it goes against the imperfect "human nature" our Creator gave us when He booted us from Eden. Surely, He knew we would be motivated by self interest, that we would work longer and accomplish more when we could keep the fruits of our own labor Human nature has not changed since biblical times. And it won't. We just don't produce as much when required to give up our harvest to the government for general distribution.
But our "nature" includes
that which can redeem us: We have a need for community. We despair of human suffering. And we are richly rewarded in ways which no economist can measure when we give freely of our harvest and of ourselves to those in need.
The government most likely to create an "abundance" for its people, then, is one which rewards individual effort by letting each citizen keep most of what he earns. From that "abundance" citizens give generously to help their neighbors and to alleviate suffering.
And they reap the rewards of their good works and charity. A government that encourages citizens to be responsible for themselves and their families is in harmony with "human nature."
The constitutional republic our Founding Fathers estab-
lished for America has been'a' good and just government It has given us individual free-; doms and abundance unequalled. We need to remitid those who clamor for "social democracy" that they risk losing those freedoms. The failed welfare state they support makes impoverished servants of its clt izens.

Speaking of luxuries
In reading the chronicle of Nov. 28, specifically "County mulls office sites," I find myself feeling angry and to some degree insulted by the remarks of Commissioner Vicki Phillips. My anger is felt very simply because I am a proud Inverness taxpaying resident.
The anger and insult is caused by the comments of Phillips, and I quote according to the paper.
"I am not sure the county has the luxury of waiting to see what the city (Inverness) is going to do."
"We are county government, we have to serve all Citrus County, not just the city of Inverness."
Of course, Commissioner Valentino agreed!
With all due respect, Madam Commissioner, you do enjoy the luxury of more than 7,000 tax-paying homeowners in the city of Inverness! You do enjoy the luxury of receiving into the
county coffers the 7,000-plus and some 350 plus commercial entities being taxed by the county at the highest rate.
You have no problem taking our money, yet seemingly have problems providing services. It has never been satisfactorily explained to me what you do for Inverness reidents. Not being a constitutional lawyer, therefore having the thought process of the average taxpayer, I have always felt the issue of double taxation would make for hardy and heated discussion.
I might add, Mrs. Phillips, that my county taxes are higher than my city taxes! Guess what, Madam? I get more by far for my city taxes.
I would suggest that as opposed to attempting to shift blame and responsibility to our city manager and the city, accept it for what in reality it truly is. You and your sidekick are in the wrong place at the right time.

What is difficult is that people say things in letters or in Sound Off that are not factually correct, yet they build their opinion around the information as a starting point. We should probably do a better job of writing editor's notes that clarify the issues.
For instance, it was suggested recently by a Sound Off caller that businesses that pay impact fees should get no sympathy because those costs can "be written off."
Businesses do not write off impact fees. When a business pays an impact fee tax, the cost eventually finds its way back to the consumer.
Do you think Sam Walton's heirs just write a check to the Citrus County Commission for impact fee taxes and then are done with it? Not a chance, they raise prices for consumers and get the money back.
Taxes of any kind are paid by wage earners. Higher taxes mean a higher cost of living.
That doesn't make impact fees good or bad, just don't delude yourself into thinking there is some big tax break available when a tax is paid. Eventually, you pay it.
A similar cynical comment was made about businesses that make charitable contributions. Any tax benefit is minor. Businesses, just like individuals, make contributions to charities so they can help the agencies do their job and make the community a better place to live.
It's a shame we must be so cynical.
A more direct criticism was made of the chronicle by a reader claiming that we
endorsed a candidate for the county commission because that candidate spent a lot of dollars advertising in the newspaper. The reader pointed out that the opposing candidate had a college education and was therefore the best-qualified candidate.
For those who view the world in that purely cynical way, it may be hard to believe that endorsements don't work that way. Advertising spending doesn't have anything to do with endorsements or the news coverage that a candidate receives. By training, the folks in any paper's newsroom don't pay. any attention to who is buying an advertisement.
On the issue of having a college education academic achievement does not guarantee leadership or policymaking success. It can certainly help, but it's no guarantee.
Here's another myth that was repeated just Friday in the Sound Off. Those who don't want to expand county government in downtown Inverness claim it would be cheaper to expand government in a more rural area where the land is less expensive. The caller complained that the county is going to spend $1 million an acre in Inverness when the county owns hundreds of acres in Lecanto.
The county is not going to pay $1 million an acre in Inverness and the county does not own hundreds of acres in Lecanto.
Land is only a small portion of the total cost of putting a building together.
When a big county complex is constructed outside of our limited urban areas, taxpayers also have to pay for the widening of the roads, the construction of sewer plants, the installation of water lines, the installation
of new traffic lights and other infrastructure
improvements.
Those costs are usually hidden when comparisons are made.
The county's own study shows that, in the end, it would be much more expensive to build outside of Inverness. Some investors would like the county to build outside of. the county seat because they realize they can take .advantage of the improved infrastructure for their own purposes. These folks hide their own self-interest behind rhetoric calling for the use of less expensive land.
The infrastructure already exists in Inverness (and downtown Crystal River).
The comparison doesn't even take into consideration the extra cost of gasoline to travel to the out-of-the-way location or the fact that it supports urban sprawl an official "no-no" in the county's comprehensive plan.
The good news is that both Inverness and Crystal River are looking at establishing lower impact fees to create an incentive to develop commercial establishments where the infrastructure already exists.
When you read items on the opinion page of the newspaper (including this column), remember that you are reading opinion. Opinions are based on facts, but sometimes those facts get twisted in the process.
As for Tim Tebow, I am hoping that today's paper reports that he won the Heisman Trophy because he is, by far, the best candidate.
Can I stay in Florida now?

In fairness, apparently the doctors who are the principals in the practice are instrumental in such decisions.
The most frustrating thing is that I really liked my doctor. He's got a good demeanor, seems to know his stuff and is conveniently located. The staff there's always been nice and I have little doubt that the office management staff is equally competent.
I just really struggle with their position. Not only are they not interested in taking my company's insurance, but also I was told they're considering dumping Blue Cross.

gling to keep their heads above water, these folks turn away business even business of longtime patients. It's weird that I'm a patient-non grata when viewed as an insuree, yet when I whip out the old MasterCard it's, "Thanks much, see you in six months."
I tend to doubt that any insurance company has considered policies that'd cover newspaper subscriptions, but if such a thing existed I can't imagine our company turning away a would-be subscriber. "Sorry, sir, cash, credit or hit the road."
It's now official: It's time for me to find a new doctor and that's not helping my blood pressure.

Hot Corner: ETHANOL
Engine valves
A few years ago when ethanol was suggested for autos, the gasoline industry had all kinds of warnings about it burning engine valves. Where are these voices now?
So now it's OK?
How strange. I remember when ethanol was being added to gasoline many years ago and it was discontinued because it was causing damage to the engines. Now that
we want to boost the farm industry, it's OK.
Clogged injectors
Today, Monday, the paper reports about adding ethanol to the gas in Citrus County. Backup the '70s, rCigo stations had a product they.called, gaso-hol and they had had a huge problem of cleaning existing gas tanks and gas lines and clogging up carburetors tremendously. Of course, there are no carburetors today, but the fuel injectors are much
more critical than carburetors? Ford Motor Company even haU a TSB, a Technical Service Bulletin, on not to use the stiff; because it would eat gaskets ft carburetors. Well, nobody's mentioned what's going to goo on with this ethanol. I have a feeling that it would be the same situation. Maybe not as! drastic at first, but it will haved a cleaning agent that will clogll up injectors for older cars. 19 Nobody's talked about that ye% but it's a problem in the future" I assure you.

the seasonal surge in letters and Sound Offs, we're going to have to shed some of the Sound Off calls to clear the way for letters.
Unlike anonymous Sound Offs, letters are signed and people, generally, take more time to think through what they're going to say when they put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard (with accompanying name, address and telephone number).
We will open up some space in the paper to fit in tons of this stuff, but if your Sound Off call doesn't get published, the aforementioned glut is the reason why.
This is the one gift that won't be returned.

| Commission shopping
$ have a question for our county commissioners: I'd like them to give us a poll of where they shop. Do they shop in Citrus County or do trjey go out of the county for finer, nicer stores? I'd really like to know and I'm syre there are quite a few ojjier people that would, vytiere do you shop?
Hasty reaction
,1 couldn't agree more w'i'th Dr. Dixon. The Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security, both hastily organized after 9/11 by the Bush administration, are both disasters of disorganization and inefficiency. With the atmosphere of fear and intimidation shown by the Bush administra-tipji, a week of random bombing at shopping malls, schools and other venues would leave most Americans cpwering in fear. Dr. Dixon's attempt to'blame Democrats and civil Libertarians for intelligence failures is nothing more than pure Republican horse-pucky. The Bush administration has done more to dis-;fedit and diminish the intelligence immunity than any other presiden-administration.
Widening Croft
TBa nk of America on Croft Avenue, Before Wal-Mart came in, had to fnove because Wal-Mart was moving jn. Wal-Mart paid over a half a million dollars to widen Croft Avenue, ajJTd Bank of America had to move Dut. Several years ago, the county 'equired each homeowner to pay $500 in the Inverness area to pave the dirt roads. Well, Croft Avenue never got widened. Bank of America moved out and another bank moved
n and the dirt roads aren't com-Dletely paved. What happened to all $jat money? And they keep talking pfeut impact fees, but what happened to the money.for the widen-
ng of Croft Avenue and what hap-
ened to the money to pave the dirt
bads?
Too much crime
Hn Citrus Hills at night, people drive through here drunk, up on your iawn, break sprinkler systems, run over bushes and your lawn. Nobody does anything about it. The sheriff's (office) doesn't do nothing about it. The security doesn't do nothing afoout it. This is supposed to be such ari elite place to live. No crime, zero crime, I was told when I bought my home here. That's a lot of crap.
Dodging bullets
fe'll respond to your Sound Off about the recession at 2.5 percent alkyear and also the hurricanes. I believe we had 14 hurricanes, named five of them, and two of them were major hurricanes. And the recession you're probably wrong about that, too, if you're not right about the hurricanes. Just because none of them hit us doesn't mean we didn't have any.
Officer's gun
j I'm calling in about some of :hese articles on the FDLE officer laving his handgun stolen from his /ehicle, and his tactical vest. I'm a Retired law enforcement officer and
find it appalling that things like that go on. I'm glad to see that the state of Florida has finally developed firearms certifications for fheir officers, and now they're going to work on some kind of a directive pr order on safeguarding of their firearms. It's absurd that you're a aw enforcement officer and you ust leave your weapon and your vest and everything locked in your
!' ehicle. That's not safeguarding our firearm. If anybody should afeguard a firearm, it should be a law enforcement officer. Nothing jmore embarrassing than having a bobbery go wrong and maybe a pqmicide committed during that robbery with a law enforcement's firearm that was stolen out of his (/ehicle.
Radical Muslims
j France is suffering from a third night of rioting. The Associated Press and I quote says: "It's bands of youths that are causing the trouble. Senior police officials call jhem urban guerrillas. The unrest is in the neighborhoods where many Arabs, blacks and other minorities jive." When are we going to say what |t is? Radical Muslims are the prob-em. Radical Muslims have sworn to
the infidels. They are white, Dlack, Christian, Jew and anybody who does not believe in Islam and the Quran. They attacked us once
and they will do it again.

Little impact
[ In response to Commissioners bamato and Thrumston's request to freeze and/or cut back impact fees
ior two years: Are you nuts? Quit try-ng to blame impact fees for the lousing slowdown that just happens o be a nationwide problem. Why jdon't you consider lowering your prices to help consumers? It seems houses and services have been getting more and more out of control for a long time now. I support Bartell's, Phillips' and Valentino's |tand on impact fees having little to
do with the housing slump, and that's my say on the matter.
Trashy trail
Old Floral City Road. Garbage, garbage, garbage you would think it was a dump. Whiskey bottles, beer bottles, vodka bottles, pop cans, beer cans and, what else even dirty diapers. What are you folks thinking throwing stuff out of your cars and trucks? Sheriff Dawsy, put a deputy out in an unmarked car and you __A would pay the fuel for the
Oil Iv car and ^e deputy's waes vu u for a month from the fines for littering.
Fees for kitten
My wife and I just recently got a kitten at the Citrus County Animal Control. The kitten died after a couple days and we tried to get our money back for the spaying of the kitten, because you prepay for spaying or neutering. The Animal Control would not return the money for the spaying or neutering because they said we did not have proof that the animal was dead. Now do they want me to bring in pictures of the dead animal or dig him up in the back yard where we had a nice funeral?
Toll-free number
I want to thank the person who gave me the toll-free number for the Haley VA Clinic and so on. Sometimes it does work. I called this happened about a couple weeks ago when I read it in the paper and I want to thank you again for the number. I called today because they sent me a notice to make an appointment for blood tests and my personal doctor, whatever, and I just got thorough. Just this past Monday, I saw my provider. Last week, I took the blood test and now they sent me another letter to make an appointment again .... But then I couldn't get it toll-free, so I tried to get in touch with the number in Brooksville. They (put me on) hold for 10 minutes and I hung up on them. I'm going to try again with the toll-free number tomorrow. Thanks again.
Making scents
In reference to "Takes breath away:" The writer talks about how some of the women who wear cheap perfume of any kind, that it stinks. First of all, who says that the perfume is cheap? She could spend a lot of money and buy perfume and have it stink. But why don't you worry about something else besides someBbdy else's perfume? There is so much perfume out there and so many people. What one person likes, another person dislikes. It's like one person's junk is another person's treasure. While one person likes perfume, another person doesn't. You can't please everybody, whether it's smoking, perfume or what car you drive, what home you own or how you take care of your house. Get a life. Find something else to complain about.
Pickup drivers
In response to "Drive smaller cars," the people complaining about the gas prices: Some of us who do drive pickup trucks aren't complaining at all about the gas prices. Half of us that have pickup trucks know that the gas price is high. So, who knows who's complaining about the gas prices? But it's not all of us people driving big pickup trucks.
Weekend judges
You know, I wanted to call in because I am sick and tired of Citrus County's court system. This is ridiculous. If you get arrested in Citrus County and you go to jail and it's on a weekend, your first appearance is held either by a Sumter County judge or Hernando County judge...Sumter County is mainly smaller than Citrus County, yet they have a judge that stays available on the weekends. If you get caught for VOP in Citrus County and go in on the weekend, forget it. They throw you away and leave you 'til your second court date. This is ridiculous, Citrus County. We need to stand up and change this.
Lower gas prices
It is easy to say impact fees be lowered. It is even harder to be able to provide the answer to who is going to have to pick up the shortfall. The current property owners here in Citrus County have had it with increased property taxes. If the county commission wants to do something that we can all benefit the current residents, businesses, construction workers they need to repeal the 12-cent gas tax. We all get to reap the benefit, and having lower gas prices will attract more people to move here. The county commissioners need to learn that government has to feel the pain of a budget shortfall before the taxpayers do.
Cable monopoly
How is it Bright House can charge us even $1 more when we're paying more than Pinellas County and the larger counties already? How do they get away with charging the smaller counties more than the larger counties? Just because they have a monopoly on the cable?
I HEREBY PASS CONTROL OF THE MILITARY TO MY SUCCESSOR...

Lost dogs
I think it was a person who called in and exaggerated the description of an animal shelter. I think you are inhumane in saying the lost dogs should be euthanized. What about the animals lost in Katrina? To some elderly citizens, a dog is their only companion.
Businesses taxed
This is to the Sound Off article where the gentleman said "Tax passed
on," about businesses, that they don't pay taxes.
Businesspeople pay land taxes. They pay taxes it's called business expenditures and they claim that on their tax because they're overhead. So when they pay taxes which they do they pay for taxes on the merchandise that they purchase and they pay taxes on the land that they buy. That's called business expenditures, and it is a tax deduction for business expenses. So, yes, businesses do get taxed.
To torture or not
It is well known that both Johnson and Nixon allowed torture during the Vietnam War. However, neither Roosevelt nor Truman, being honorable men, countenanced any kind of torture. So the recent caller is completely incorrect.
Prisoners freed
Saudi Arabia has released 1,500 al-Qaida prisoners. With friends like this, we don't need enemies.

Commentary
Citrus County (FL) Chronicle
Toys from Santa
With all the concerns and fears we have with buying dangerous toys from China, I think I might have the solution: Go back to buying our toys that are made at the North Pole.
Waiting room blues
I agree with the person who complained about the long waiting time in a doctor's office. What about the people who have to take time off from their jobs to see a doctor? In what should have taken 60 to 90 minutes, goes into two and three hours. Some people don't get paid for this time off their jobs, but there's no evening hours to go to. These doctors don't care if their patients are losing money as long as they're getting theirs. I think it's really a sad situation when people are walking out and canceling their appointments because of the long wait. Doctors, get real and start thinking about all other people's valuable time.
Personal remarks
The arrogance of our county commission to vote to have the taxpayers pay their legal bills for comments they made not for decisions they made, but for comments they made about Mr. Dick and his alleged problem. To have the county commission vote to have us pay their legal bills for personal remarks vs. public policy is outrageous..
Giveaway votes
This is Nov. 30 and I'd just like to have my say about this Florida recount. You know, everybody says that, you know, that the state of Florida and everything gave everything back to Bush, and the Supreme Court did. Well, you know something? Gore, Al Gore from the state of Tennessee, never ever carried his own state. What do you think about that, folks? Ha, ha.
Check the ads
I'm trying to find out if there's anybody in Citrus County, Hernando, Inverness that has any small puppies that they would like to give away to a good home, and if they could put a phone number in the paper or something like that. I mean I could adopt a dog for $100, $200, but I can't afford that right now. But I'd be glad to give any animal a healthy and good home if I can get one free and if they could put a number in the paper.
editor's note: check section 020 free offers in ihe chronicle's classified advertising-, which often gives contacts for free pets-to-good homes. such information will not be published in sound off.
Water restrictions
I need to call in to report somebody who's been violating the watering law, for the watering police to be sure to get them because they've done it for 10 days in a row. And it's coming out of the sky, out of those big white fluffy things, but it's not coming out on the appropriate days on my property. I need to have somebody look into this.
Work for it
... People play golf when they are on disability. People have babies when they have no health insurance and they can't afford kids. And people want more Social Security but never worked a day in their life. All they do is whine. To the hardworking people, I'm sick of paying for all these people.
Hardline healer
That Dr. Dixon supports torture is disappointing. Would he also use his-medical skills to torture a suspected criminal or terrorist? Dr. Dixon also would appear to welcome the government's warrantless wiretapping. Is he ready to change the U.S. Constitution to support a police state? Strong beliefs for someone who made his living as a healer.
Bush won: That's all
"Florida recount" in the Friday paper. It continues people can't let it go. These sorry Democrats are printing lies about the Supreme Court giving Bush the presidency. Then he claims a later recount found that Gore had really won. That's an absolute lie and it's very typical of Democrats at every level of government. If the truth doesn't suit them, just keep telling the same lie over and over and over and maybe some people will start to believe it. It's a shame. Bush won and they didn't even count the overseas military vote because the Democrats didn't want to count those votes. But let's let bygones be bygones.
Respect for flag
Why did the caller make a big to-do about where Barack Obama was holding his hands while the national anthem was being played? I'm a civilian. I don't put my hand over my heart or salute when the national anthem is being played. I leave my hands down at my sides, and other people fold their arms. That's just the way it's done. Why is there a big deal made out of a stupid picture running around the Internet?
Light up or take down
There are Christmas decoration lights on the poles on Citrus Springs
Boulevard that were installed last winter, last Christmas, and again this year and still are not lit at night. Are they supposed to be just viewed during the daytime? Everywhere else Crystal River, Citrus Hills, Beverly Hills, Inverness they're all lit at night so beautifully, except Citrus Springs. Seems to me that if they're not going to be lit again this year, the problem should have been solved within one year, from last year to this year. If they're not going to be lit, why not just take them down? I'm sure there are other people who feel the same way as I do.
Pardons pay off
All of the pardons President Bill Clinton gave when he left office are now paying off. Many of them are now contributing to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. This is the corrupt leadership we will get if she becomes president.
Runaway bus
About a month ago, we were on Pine Ridge Boulevard at the four-way stop. There were cars stopped at three of the intersections. A school bus came speeding through the intersection, did not even stop. It was our turn to have gone. If we had pulled out, the bus would have hit us sideways head-on. We tried to catch the bus. We were going 65 mph on Pine Ridge Boulevard and we couldn't even get close to this bus. The only way we caught up to it was when it got to where Pine Ridge and (County Road) 486 meet and it had to stop because there was a line of traffic. We called the school board, but evidently nothing's being done because this bus is still riding.
Poor behavior
I recently watched a soccer game between Lecanto High School and Citrus High School, and Lecanto overwhelmingly dominated the Citrus High School Soccer Team. And I must say talent-wise, there was no question they were the better team. Unfortunately, sportsmanship-wise I think Lecanto needs teaching of proper sportsmanship on how to conduct yourself on the field while they're playing the game. They were ahead 6 goals and several players were being very antagonistic towards the Citrus players. One player attempted to actually get in a fight with another player. So I think the coaches need to take a stance and work more on sportsmanship instead of just fundamentals of the game for our young players, like my sons who happened to see this.
Nativity scene
My comments are directed toward the Inverness city mayor and the Inverness city manager. As a Christian, just wondering where the nativity scene has gone to and why it is not on display at City Hall this year. And as well, not to disrespect the veterans of our county, but I am concerned and frustrated that the Inverness Christmas Parade has a patriotic theme. We just had a Veterans Day Parade. Why can't the Christmas parade actually honor and respect the Christmas Christian holiday?
County budget
Everyone should look at the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners' Web site. There it tells about the budget. There are over $49 million of budget reserves a large amount of cash carried forward. Also, my question: Why does the county pay impact fees?
Needful things
Watching TV lately, I watch all the candidates running for president and so on, senators and all that. That's all they talk about is immigration, which they don't do anything about, Waterboarding, which they don't agree with, which they prefer having your head cut off, and the other things that doesn't bother us. What about the gasoline prices, the oil, the vegetables and the fruits in the market? You buy a couple of tomatoes, it costs you $2 and there's no taste to them, neither. And anything you do now, the politicians talk about everything else but the things that we really need. I wish somebody would get smart enough.
Confused crane
Laws or no laws, certain people are allowed to break. You break the law by speeding, drinking and trespassing, but you can get away with breaking a law on the endangered species list. I understand whooping cranes are endangered and can't be messed with, but yet on Nov. 27, between the hours of 11 and 12 p.m., a young whooping crane was left by three adults on a lady's property. So this person ... her dog decided to make the young crane (leave) by the man chasing it with a net, her waving her arms, and her dog nipping at the bird. With this going on, the bird was so confused and scared wouldn't you be, you know, scared and probably flew off. You did the right thing by reporting it to the wildlife department, but they tell you that you have to be caught in the act. The way they respond here to catch them? Right.
ION
Senior founders
I want to praise Mr. DeMeritt for his letter to Charlie Dean that was in the Friday paper. There are many senior citizens here still living who did not have a 401(k), big retirement incomes, and live on less than $1,000 a month Social Security. They helped found this area and there is nothing being done by our county politicians or our state representatives, but there are still some of us alive and kicking.
Lurking patrols
I've been a resident of Citrus County for 25 years and I'm a young college student just trying to make my way through the year. But somehow the highway patrol always seems to be messing with the young kids and giving them 8 points in one day, $400 in one day. What's the deal with these guys? It's entrapment. They're hanging in the backwoods behind trees, ready to bust us for nothing. Please tell them to chill out.
Rays stadium
The Rays, et al., want to build a new stadium at Al Lang Field. The I new stadium would be smaller thaft Tropicana Field, the Tropicana stadium. The owners, Sternberg and Silverman and so forth, etc., woulcjj wind up the owners of the stadiums at Al Lang Field. The new stadium wojpld be paid by the taxpayers in the state of Florida. I think the Rays owners; are playing with other people's money, known as OPM.

Help truly deserving
As a retired letter carrier from the northeast, I've personally been involved with charitable activities around the holidays. It disturbed me when we would enter the home of a "family with needs" and see they have cable TV, expensive video games -and other luxuries a truly needy family only dreams of, and give them donated food, toys and clothing.
How can this be possible? you may ask. The answer is quite simple: Only those who apply receive the assistance. Right or wrong, the majority of truly desperate families don't apply for charitable assistance for various reasons. Be it an inability to get to wherever the applications are processed, to self-pride and perhaps even ignorance. The bottom line is these truly needy must be sought out by the well-meaning public and be given the assistance they truly deserve. It should not go to crafty, third-generation families on the dole. This only encourages their behavior.
When I moved to Florida in 1994,1 Witnessed a food pantry handing out Thanksgiving dinners. A very nice gesture, but who was driving up to get their dinner to take home to the family? People in brand-new, quite expensive cars! These same type of people, decked in jewelry to the nines, swipe an EBT card at the grocery store register. I dare not say a word aloud, but would love to give them an ear full.
Growing up in the early 1960s, I remember my dad would get angry at television ads pleading to feed the children of underdeveloped countries. His anger was justified. His point? Feeding these people only encourages them to continue to reproduce and it becomes a never-ending cycle. He was correct As blunt a fact as it is. Perhaps if we encouraged safe sex, vasectomies and the use of (donated) contraceptives, there would be fewer of these generational destitute people.
Charity begins at home. This year,

Give thanks
At this time of the year, we thought it would be a good time to tell everyone what we are thankful for.
Three months ago, our son Jared was seriously injured in a car accident on his way home from Tallahassee. A nurse at Tallahassee Memorial told us we were about to embark on a marathon. With the
to the Editor
grace of God, the doctors, nurses, family, friends and this community, Jared was able to successfully complete the most important and difficult part of this stretch. He still has a long way to go, but the course is on level ground now. We truly think that within the next year, he will run across the finish line. We know that to be able to get to this point is nothing short of a miracle.
I can't explain how overwhelming and humbling this experience has been for my husband and myself. As the world around us continued to spin, our world stood still for weeks. Friends, family, WTI colleagues and this community came forward in every way possible to help us
through this difficult time. From trips to Tallahassee to bring us supplies or just to hold our hand, to organizing a car wash, setting up a trust fund, disj playing signs of well wishes at the high school and local businesses and countless cards and phone calls.
During the past 40 years, we have watched this community grow, sometimes with sadness for seeing that small town feeling starting to fade away. But there was nothing small about the way Citrus County pulled for us. Your generosity was displayed in the biggest way when we needed it the most To all of you we say, You, Rock, "We are thankful for all of you."
"Friendship happens in that special moment when someone reaches
out to another, trusts, comforts, believes in another, hopes the best for another, and makes a special difference that no one else can make."
Please keep in mind other families in crisis this holiday season, for those who have lost their children and those injured and continuing the fight to heal.
At this time of giving thanks, we want to thank you from our family to yours.

Lock-out help
On Nov. 14, at 1 p.m. I went to the Race Trac gas station on U.S. 19 in Crystal River. As soon as I shut the door, I realized that I had just locked my purse, cell phone and keys in my son's truck
A gentleman was the first person to come to my aid. Luckily, the passenger window was down slightly, so he tried to catch the door handle with a bungee cord; then he tried using an irrigation tool, no luck
Next, a blue car entered the spot ahead of me with two young girls with two little boys. They were absolutely determined to get that truck door open. First, little Bubba put his arm through the opening, but it was just too far from his grasp.
The young brunette used a child's pink umbrella to grab the handle, and it opened!
I told them that I was not familiar with driving this vehicle, that it was my son's truck I apologized for being so absent-minded and stressed out That day, as I told them, they were my Guardian Angels, and I suppose that my son, Matt, who recently passed away, sent them to help his mom.
Thank you so much for all of your help and kindness. If anyone in Crystal River thinks that there are not polite and kind people who live here, they are bonkers. Thank you again.

Holiday has a new home
JIM HUNTER/Chronicle
The new Holiday Inn Express Hotel on State Road 44,
Holiday Inn Express opens $5.8 million hotel just west of Inverness
Jim Hunter jhunter@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
The first of two Holiday Inn Express hotels for Citrus County is up and running near Inverness. The hotel, near the corner of Kensington Avenue and State Road 44just west of Inverness, opened last week.
The owners of the three-story hotel had intended to be open in November but had some minor delays, said Azim Saju, one of the managing members of Hospitality Development Group (HDG) of Ocala, the hotel development and management company that manages it for the owner, its affiliate, Sarina Asha, LLC. The hotel employs about 20 people.
A second, 72-room Holiday Inn Express is planned by another unrelated company for Citrus Coimly in Crystal River on State Road 44. Crystal River city officials said the owners are permitted to get started on construction, but the ground has not yet been broken. Holiday Inn officials said construction should start by the first quarter of 2008 and the hotel should be open by the first quarter of 2009.
The newly opened, $5.8 million hotel near Inverness has 20 rooms that are suites and have wet bars, Jacuzzis, microwaves and refrigerators, Saju said. The facility is 100 percent smoke free and does not allow pets. It has hypoallergenic carpeting throughout
The hotel offers an expanded version of the free continental breakfast that is traditional at Express Inns, with hot foods like eggs and sausage in addition to the regular foods like cereals and fruit, buns, coffee and juice.
The hotel has a meeting room for 25 and a fitness center. There is a heated pool at the hotel, and Saju said the owners decided to expand the pool deck to make it more commodious for guests or groups.
All the rooms have 32-inch flat screen LCD TVs and all are hard-wired with high-speed Internet connections. The beds are Serta ergonomic beds and local calls are free. The hotel also offers a 24-hour business center for guests.
The prices for rooms range between $100 to
Con pi-fears credit pinch
Some of the suites at the Holiday Inn Express feature microwaves and refrigerators, as well as Jacuzzis. All have 32-inch widescreen LCD TVs and are hard-wired for the Internet.
$160 a night, and the hotel honors all discounts, Saju said. The construction was done with aerated concrete panels, which means improved temperature control and better soundproofing, he said. He added that in the next few months, the hotel plans to add a generator that would allow it to function at 60 to 70 percent of full capacity in emergencies if power is cut off.
Saju's brother Navroz, also a managing member of HDG, said the company had been looking at Citrus for a location for a hotel since 1998. He said the development of a hotel, including the research, planning and implementation before construction starts takes a long time, but the company is excited to finally open the new facility.
"Citrus County is a dynamic location," he said, citing the many golf courses and all the eco-tourism activities. The location puts the hotel on
a major artery near the county seat between the lakes and Gulf regions, which couldn't be better, he said.
Looking at the county and its growth, he said, "We felt it could use a quality lodging facility." He said the hotel's marketing position affords a high quality place to stay at an affordable price for both business customers and the general traveling public.
The hotel's phone number is 341-3515. The HDG Internet site is: www.hdghotels.com. HDG owns a number of other hotels in this region of Florida, including a Sleep Inn planned for Dunnellon, where construction is expected to begin in the spring when a building moratorium expires. It also has built other hotels in Ocala, Leesburg and Wildwood.

Dear constituents:
We all know someone who has been impacted by the downturn in the construction industry. The reality is that many local kids will not have much of a Christmas this year because their parents have been laid off or have taken on lower paying jobs just to scrape by. The CCBA has partnered with Toys for Tots to brighten the Christmas holidays for some of the children affected by the construction slowdown. We are asking to bring stocking staffers and/or toys to the CCBA for the Children's Christmas Party on Dec. 15.
Thank you,
Melissa; Sutherland^

Florida's aquifers are among the most productive aquifers in the world, supplying Floridians with almost 100 percent of our drinking water. This incredible, intricate system is defined by its Karst topography, which includes limestone layers and networks of underwater caves, disappearing rivers, springs and sinkholes. Responsible water and chemical use in our homes and in our yards can help to protect this delicate system.
The Florida Yards and Neighborhoods program will be offering a class entitled "Water's Journey: Hidden Rivers of Florida" on Wednesday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the classroom of the Citrus County Extension Service, located at 3650 W. Sovereign Path, Lecanto.

The class is free and is open to youths and adults; please call Cris at (352) 527-5701 to pre-register.
Conserving water in the landscape is easily accomplished by irrigating based on plant water needs. Dormant lawns and landscapes require less irrigation during the winter months; irrigation can be limited to approximately once every two weeks.

may also take on a blue-gray color with footprints remaining after they've been made.
Incorporating two to three inches of compost into the top six inches of the soil increases the soil's water holding capacity by up to 0.57 inches. For established landscapes, a half-inch top dressing of compost applied multiple times after each time it's absorbed can provide a similar benefit.
Inside the home, water-conserving showerheads and faucets make a big dent in water use. If you are unsure whether you have efficient faucets and showerheads, the Citrus County Extension has water flow bags available that measure each fixture's output (they can be mailed or picked up at the Extension Office along with other informational materials). Wasteful showerheads are easily replaced with inexpensive heads and wasteful faucets only need to have an inexpensive aerator added.
For more information Florida friendly landscaping, visit the University of Florida's website www.solutionsforyourlife.org or contact the Florida Yards & Neighborhoods (FYN) program staff at your local Extension Office. FYN Program Coordinator Audrey Durr can be reached at (352) 527-5708 or audrey.durr@bocc.citrus.fl.us. FYN Program Coordinator Debbe Hooper can be reached at (352) 527-5707 or debbe. hoop-er@bocc.citrus.fl.us.

Getting crafty for Christmas
Special to the Chronicle
Diane Nally of Lecanto uses monofilament line and beads to create "Victorian netting" for objects such as this Christmas ball.
Handmade items give holidays personal touch
$y Joy Gallion For the Chronicle
The Christmas season always blows in with a flurry of memories, and brings with it a desire to do something nice for someone else. Remember your early school days? Christmas was a time to make wreaths, cookies, angels, and paperweights for Mom, Dad, and the grandparents something from your heart made by your hands. This same Christmas spirit still drives many of us as adults.
While anyone with pine cones, a hot-glue gun, gold spray paint, and
Christmas ribbon can make seasonal items, crafts are available for all skill levels. There is something for childish hands and minds, as well as for those who prefer difficult, intricate handiwork
Craft shows offer ideas for made-by-hand items, and the artwork not often something you might think up is usually affordable. Crafters expect that some of their work will be taken apart and copied, and are often very happy to talk about how they create their crafts.
Please see CRAFTY/Page 15E

Charlotte Haag of Inverness makes small gift boxes out of old Christmas cards. "Everybody gives me the cards for recycling," she says.

CRAFTS
Continued from Page 14E
Mary Curtis, a crafter from Inverness, loves creating her handiwork
"It must be a labor of love," she says, "because crafters don't sell their stuff for expensive prices. You can't count your time." Curtis uses plastic canvas and yarn to make toy
airplanes, eyeglass cases, hanging stars, earrings, and signs for the dishwasher. She also makes small aluminum foil-covered train engines using a five-pack of gum, roll of Life Savers Candy, two chocolate kisses, and pennies for wheels a great stocking stuffer! The supplies she uses are readily available and plastic canvas is a good medium for children. Imagination is your only limitation.
Recycled items interest Charlotte Haag of Inverness. She makes small gift boxes out of used Christmas cards. "I take a Christmas card," she says, "the back is the base and the front is the top of the card. I put a paper covering on the bottom, but some people put rolled cotton in there. I can make them as big as the card is. They are a perfect square and I adjust the lids about a quarter of an inch bigger
Everybody gives me cards for recycling."
A good template and folding instructions for making cards into boxes can be found at www.allfreecrafts.com/recy-cling-crafts/greeting-card-box.shtml.
Haag also uses tin cans to make seasonal gifts. She coats vegetable cans with red acrylic spray paint and adds a hand-painted snowman (using three coats of white to cover
the red). "Say you want to give your neighbor a little gift," she says, "put a little candy in there or any little treat" Designs for Christmas angels are limitless. Sandy Taylor of Hudson makes some lovely ones and she eagerly explains her design to interested persons. "These angels are made out of feathered boas," she says. "You buy the

Camellias add class to gardens
Rainbow Springs State Park on U.S. Highway 41 north of Dunnellon is one of the few state parks that are allowed to grow and feature non-native species of plants because it may continue to demonstrate its heritage as a former tourist attraction. A team of dedicated volunteer gardeners constantly tends the planting jmf beds. gar
From November -
until March, different varieties of camellias provide a succession of flowers in shades ranging from white, yellow, lilac, pink and salmon to red in solid or blotched bi-colors. Each cul-tivar blooms for only a month in early-, mid- or late season. The majority are large-leaved, mid-season blooming Camellia japonica descendents originally from Japan, Korea and China.
These need afternoon shade, as the thick, dark-green leaves will burn in too much hot summer sun. Flowers are typically 3 to 4 inches in diameter. The standard used in judging at camellia societies and clubs includes miniature (less than 2.5 inches), small, medium, large and very large (more than 5 inches). Form may be single, semi-double, double, rose-form, peony-form, etc.
From Japan, small-leaved C. sasanqua species bloom early starting in November and December depending on the variety. The evergreen, leathery, dark-green leaves are dense on the slow-growing shrub.
Flowers are small to medium, slightly fragrant, mostly single, individually short lived but profusely borne on the shrub or small tree. This faster-growing species tolerates more

large, leathery leaves. It can be espaliered in a smaller garden or cut back hard to rejuvenate an older specimen.
Tea is made from the tender new leaves that are plucked, fermented and dried in different ways to produce green or black tea from Camellia sinensis. The shrub is kept about 6 feet tall for ease of harvest Rich in anti-oxidants, the tea is a popular pick-me-up and health drink that has been used by Asians for thousands of years.
To grow camellias successfully, the soil needs to be slightly acidic, well-drained and enriched with plenty of organic humus. Good drainage is critical to prevent phytophtho-ra root rot, yet camellias need regular irrigation so they are not xeric or drought tolerant
To keep camellias healthy, three feedings in spring summer and fall with a 14-2-12 plus minor elements, 70 percent time release, Florida-friendly fertilizer is essential in our sandy soils.
Camellias grow best in temperate, humid climates exactly our local condition with morning dew and summer rains. Most are frost hardy in Zones 7 to 10. Bud drop is often a result of too many buds, nutrient deficiency or pests and diseases. Squirrels nip off
buds on my camellias and male cardinals fly off with petals during the mating season. All camellias are susceptible to scale, so they need to be sprayed or drenched with a systemic insecticide on a regular schedule.
Entrance fee at Rainbow Springs State park is only a dollar Along the old bricked paths the gardener can use the memorial benches to rest and enjoy the camellias and azaleas planted beneath the canopy of native trees. The waterfalls, ponds and the headwaters of the Rainbow River contribute to the serenity of this special park Santa will arrive by boat on December weekends during the festival of lights. Call the park at (352) 465-8555 for more information.
You must visit Rainbow Springs State park every three weeks from fall to spring to see the many kinds of camellias blooming in the gardens.
Several camellia species and varieties are well spaced in my garden demonstration planting beds for visitors to enjoy as they wander the paths or sip tea on my shaded front porch.
Enjoy the holidays and your garden.

beginners could easily handle bead stringing.
Bead weaving is used to make nicer jewelry and fringe on lamps. Nally does "Victorian netting" using seed beads and monofilament to create lovely Christmas balls. She uses an old ball in an eggcup as a fitting model to make the netting on, and then transplants it to the new ball. She glues the collar on top. "Victorian netting is hard to pick up on when you get started. I would start out with a pattern the very first time."
Patterns are available online and in beadwork magazines.
Some people like to give homemade (bod for Christmas gifts, and Tom Brown of Crystal River (born and raised in Ozello) has a sweet handle on it. He makes HOT jellies out of fruit and peppers (like jalapenos). They are served with cream cheese on crackers. "I first started out with the jalapeho," he says. "My jelly consists of sugar, vinegar, pectin, peppers. It is basically your regular canning process." Cookbooks abound with recipes for jelly and jam, and it is easy to try unusual combinations of fruit and vegetables. Even beginners can prepare several jars of jelly in one
I first started out with the jalapefio. My jelly consists of sugar, vinegar, pectin, peppers. It is basically your regular canning process.
explaining his unique jellies made from fruits and peppers.
afternoon.
Ruth and Dermot Samuda of Crystal River make sea urchin shells into tree ornaments. She colors them with a light coating of acrylic paint, sprays on clear gloss, and glues hand-turned finials of exotic woods to the top and bottom. Her husband is
a wood turner, and supplies his wife with the wooden parts. He also makes wooden kaleidoscopes from kits that can be ordered from wood turner catalogues.
For those with no time to learn a new skill, the teddy bear tree decoration is a good
one to try. All that is required is a shiny glass ball about 2 inches across, a 4.5-inch-tall teddy bear (inexpensive), a hot-glue gun, and some holiday ribbon.
Carefully dismember the bear at the joints and glue the head, legs and arms onto the glass ball. Make a bow from the ribbon and glue it under the chin, like a bowtie. A needle with a piece of red embroidery thread looped through the top of the head makes a good hanger, and, voila! You have a teddy bear with a bright, shiny stomach.
Crafters are truly the heirs to that joy we felt as children, giving gifts we had made with our hands.
