Priest has spotted past
Documents raise questions about claims made by Joe Cavanagh
Joe Cavanagh was subject of
a Chronicle religion feature. Documents question his claims.
Mike Wright mwright@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
There is more to the Rev. Joe Cavanagh than his cleric's collar.
Cavanagh, featured in the Dec. 15 Religion section of the Citrus County Chronicle, owes at least $37,000 in child support from a 2005 divorce case, according to court records.
He hasn't paid a dime in child support, other than $75.60 to get out of jail in November on a contempt complaint from the Department of Revenue.
In an unrelated case, Cavanagh served probation after pleading guilty in a 2004 Polk County case to charges that he passed a check from the bank account belonging to his then-wife's late grandfather,
records show.
The church that Cavanagh said he formed, the Roman Orthodox Catholic Church, doesn't exist, Cavanagh acknowledged in an interview last week Cavanagh said he is in the process of developing the church with two bishops in Europe, but he wouldn't identify them.
Records also show multiple e-mails and letters from the Rev. John Sweeny whom Cavanagh describes as a longtime friend to the Polk County courts and other ministers. Two of those e-mails, written in March 2006, said Cavanagh
was dead.
His ex-wife, Diana Lipka, alleges in court documents that Sweeny and Cavanagh are the same person. Cavanagh denies that.
Cavanagh said in interviews last week he didn't know about Sweeny's e-mails, nor did he know why they were written. He told a reporter that Sweeny travels on mission trips and has no phone.
Cavanagh, 42, is living with his new wife, Rhonda, and her two children in a Beverly Hills home.

Mary Rathbone, 79, has been a pen pal with a woman In England since she was 13 years old, corresponding for 66 years, though the two have never met or spoken on the phone. Rathbone Is visiting her daughter, Rose Otis, in Inverness for several months during the winter before returning to New Jersey.
Transatlantic pen pals going still strong, even 66 years later

Chronicle
1 hey were 13-year-old girls living an ocean apart. Mary Rathbone was still in grade school in New Jersey and Pat Lewis was a schoolgirl in Birmingham, England.
A girl in Rathbone's neighborhood had known a girl who had moved to England and met some English girls who wanted American pen pals. Pat Lewis was one of those girls. "So we put all the names of the girls in a hat and five of us in the neighborhood picked names, and I got Pat's name," Rathbone said. That was in 1941. For 66 years, the two girls, now grown women with children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, have continued their long-distance friendship.
They've never met. They've never talked on the phone.
Rathbone, who still lives in New Jersey, is currently visiting her daughter, Rose Otis, in Inverness. Lewis now lives in Worcester, England.
Mary Rathbone has kept all her correspondence over the years. The Christmas card in the center congratulates her on the birth of her daughter Rose, who will soon turn 43.
"I mailed my first letter the day before the attack on Pearl Harbor because I remember we weren't at war when I wrote it," Rathbone said.
England, however, was at war, since 1939. While Rathbone wrote about her school and family, Lewis wrote about how girls had to quit school at 14 to go to work in the fac
tories. At 14, she worked in a radio factory.
"In the beginning, we couldn't wait for each others' letters," Rathbone said. "It took about three weeks to get a letter and we would answer right away. Her brother and father were both in the service."

Businesses hope to bank on county's future
Proliferation of bank branches could be sign of upcoming times
Jim Hunter jhunter@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
If anyone needs a little optimism during the current economic slowdown in Citrus County, look to the banking industry.
Including Dunnellon, there are eight
new community bank branch offices opening, soon to arrive or just arrived to join the dozen-plus banks already here. Orange Bank of Florida, which just opened a new branch office in Crystal River this fall, will be opening another branch in Inverness in late January.
Superior Bank has acquired three former AmSouth locations and will be opening new branches in them in Inverness, Beverly Hills and Homosassa on Dec. 26. It will open a fourth in the former Regions office next to the U.S. post office on U.S. 41 in Dunnellon shortly after.
Center State Bank is building one of
its signature two-story bank branch building in Crystal River. It already has a branch in Inverness and is moving the Crystal River office from its temporary location in South Square Plaza on U.S. 19 in south Crystal River.
Center State has also closed on property in Citrus Hills near Terra Vista where it will locate a branch, though it will be a year or so before the company

Retired Army Ranger paints portraits of fallen troops
For the RECORD
Christopher o'donnell
|j Sarasota Herald-Tribune
%
LAKELAND For more than a dozen families of fallen servicemen and women, that feared knock at the door came from Greg Crumbly.
During his time as an Army Ranger, one of Crumbly's duties was to tell parents and spouses that their loved ones had been killed in combat
But after the notification, and long after the sound of taps had faded, Crumbly was struck by how many families were left to grieve alone.
"You leave the funeral and there's a huge drop; that person is not mentioned again," said Crumbly, 49.
Crumbly retired from the Army and later became a portrait artist Now, he is using his military experience and artistic talent to provide families of troops killed in Iraq with a lasting memorial of their loved ones.
The Lakeland artist wants to paint portraits of the roughly 160 Florida servicemen and women killed in Iraq; the paintings will be given to the families
I at no cost
His first portrait will be of Christopher Cobb, a 19-year-old Marine from Bradenton who
I was killed while on routine patrol in Al Anbar province in Iraq in 2004.
"Who carries on for them?" Crumbly asked. "Who keeps them in this world? I want people to be able to say: 'This is my son. He's still with us.'"
And a painted portrait, he thinks, carries more permanence and prominence than a photograph.
The idea for the portrait project came from Don Blair, a retired NBC radio network correspondent who lives in Venice.
Blair saw a news report about Kaziah Hancock a 59-year-old Utah artist who in 2003 began painting portraits of servicemen and women killed on active duty.
Hancock has painted about 400 portraits of fallen troops. Her idea morphed into Project Compassion, which attracted other artists and has so far produced about 800 portraits of fallen servicemen and women.
Blair thought it was something that could also help Florida families, so he asked Crumbly, a friend of his, to get involved.
"I can't think of anyone who would do it better," Blair said. "He's going to keep on painting as long as families contact us and say, 'Will you paint our loved ones?'"
The project is being coordinated by the American Ideals Foundation, a nonprofit group that promotes artiste. The group is talking to Department of Defense officials to try to get the
Crumbly retired from the Army and later became a portrait artist. Now, he is using his military experience and artistic talent to provide families of troops killed in Iraq with a lasting memorial of their loved ones.
program recognized.
Crumbly is doing the portraits for about $750, a third of what he would normally charge for a painting.
The money for the first two portraits has come from an anonymous donor, said American Ideals founder Robert Moffa. The group is seeking grants and donations to pay for more.
"We want to make sure that they're not forgotten, that every time they look at the wall a smile will come to their face, not fear," Crumbly said.
Crumbly worked on Cobb's picture, using six pictures of Cobb affixed to his drawing board as a guide.
Crumbly is planning to use a picture of Cobb in his full ceremonial uniform as the centerpiece of the painting. He will then encircle that with smaller images from Cobb's life, such as his graduation ceremony and an image showing Cobb dressed in fatigues and carrying a rifle in the desert in Kuwait
"He's just a baby," said
Crumbly, looking at the photos. "He's just a kid."
The photos were chosen by Cobb's mother, Sheila Cobb.
Talking about Christopher three and a half years after his death still brings her to tears.
Photos of Christopher, her only child, cover many of the walls of her South Manatee home. In her wallet she keeps a small copy of the last photo taken of her son.
She also keeps in touch with his friends and comrades, and attends events to honor him, anything that will keep him alive in the hearts of others.
"Him being my only child, it's been hard," she said. "That's why I try to talk to a lot of his friends."
Cobb said she feels honored that her son will be the first portrait painted by Crumbly. Looking around her living room, she was already planning what photographs she might move in order to make space for it
She said she likes paintings "because they last forever. I'll find a place for it; I always do."

Suzanne Hammer, 65
INVERNESS
Suzanne Ellen Hammer, 65, Inverness, died Friday, Dec. 21, 2007, in Inverness. She suffered briefly from cancer and was nurtured by the loving members of the Key Pine Village and Hospice of Citrus County.
Born Jan. 19,1942, in Miami, to Hester Mae Braithwaite and Clifford Harold Hammer, she attended schools in Dade County, and graduated from the Ada Merritt Educational Center in Miami. She and her parents moved to Cocoa Beach in 1972, and lived there until 2001, when she and her father
moved to Citrus County. The family spent many years in Cashiers, N.C., at their summer home.
She became a member of the Key Training Center, and subsequently became a resident of Key Pine Village in September 2003. She loved working at the Adult Training Center, and was a regular at the many festive events held for the clients of the Key Center. She loved the clowns known as God's Clods from the First Methodist Church in Homosassa, who entertained the clients at birthday parties and other events. Her favorite activity was her biweekly shopping trip to her favorite stores. She worked tirelessly and was seldom idle.
She was accomplished at embroidery, an art her mother taught her at about age 9, and her stitchery won her many
blue ribbons at the Citrus County Fair. Friends and family treasure her samplers and pillowcases.
She was preceded in death by her parents, a niece and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Survivors include: her brother, Clifford A. Hammer and his wife Wallie, Hernando; and nieces, nephews and cousins.
Her family wishes to thank the extraordinary staff of Key Pine Village, the Key Training Center and Hospice of Citrus County for the tender, loving care given to their precious loved one on her final journey, and hopes for continued support for these organizations.

Lewis sent Rathbone a photo of herself, with long curly hair. They've both kept every card, every letter, every photo they ever sent each other.
When Lewis married Arthur, her first husband, she sent Rathbone a bunch of wedding pictures, which she put in a scrapbook. When Rathbone married Amos, she had a small wedding photo album made and sent it to her long-distance friend.
"During the war, I used to send food to her," Rathbone said. "I had gotten a letter that was so tear-stained! She had gone to the store for something and her landlady had stolen all her ration stamps. She didn't take her money she took her stamps. She couldn't get meat or sugar and she didn't know what to do."
Americans used food ration stamps at that time, too, but sugar wasn't as precious to Rathbone's family as it was to Lewis'.
"I couldn't send her meat, but I did send her sugar," she said. "My mother helped me put stuff together to send."
Postage was about 15 cents to mail a letter overseas back then. Now it costs 90 cents. Also back then, mail to servicemen was priority. If there wasn't room on the plane for other mail, it was left behind until there was room on another flight
Language has posed a challenge at times, too. Although both women speak English, the Queen's English differs from American English.
"They go to the 'loo' instead of the bathroom," Rathbone said. "A trashcan is a 'dustbin' and a car trunk is a 'boot'
"It took me a long time to figure out that when she wrote about 'hiring a caravan to take a holiday' that she meant renting a camper trailer to go on vacation. Now she takes 'coach' trips bus rides," she said.
Rathbone said the two of them have grown up together.
"We went through each other's marriages and widowhood," she said. "She's been married four times she lost her first three husbands. I felt awful when Arthur died and left her with six kids to raise. The youngest was two, I think, and she went back to work # # and put all six kids through school and didn't get married again until they were all educated and independent
"She's had a tough life," she said.
Shortly after Sept. 11, 2001, Lewis wrote:
"I feel compelled to write and inquire after your welfare after all the terrible things that
have happened in our world. How things have changed over the years since we first started writing to one another.
"When I look back to 1942 and the terrible airraids, when thousands of people were killed and areas of cities were destroyed where me and my family lived ...we could see the constant red glow in the sky over the city.
"We had small air raid shelters dug into our back garden and spent many nights in them. My sister, older than me, served in a voluntary fire service and spent many nights fighting fires. My father spent six years duration serving in the Royal Air Force instructing younger men.
"My two brothers served their stints in the Army and Air Force. Fortunately, we didn't suffer any losses in our immediate family, although cousins and uncles were lost in London.
"I, myself, married in 1948
GET THE WORD OUT
at the age of 20 and went on to have six children, as you know. I still have your wedding photographs and all the photos you sent me when you first had Rosemary and Robert and we wrote to each other through all of this.
"After I lost my dear Arthur in '62, Mum and Dad died soon after, but we sojourned on ... I now have Harry. We have been married 24 years. And now all this terrorism in the world ... one doesn't know what's coming next."
Lewis ended with, "I hope we can keep in touch until the end of our days."
"This is history," said Rathbone's da u g h t e r Rose Otis. "First of all, no one writes letters anymore, and to have kept in touch all these years and to have saved everything I have a trunk full of history, with scrapbooks and cards and letters! It's amazing."
Rathbone said she doesn't see what the big deal is, that Lewis has always been in her life. They've been each other's confidant and sounding board and secret keeper for decades.
Now each approaching 80, Rathbone on Jan. 15 and Lewis on Jan. 20, Rathbone said their correspondence has dwindled over the years, but not their affection for one another.
"We send cards at Christmas and birthdays now, and I never have been as good about writing as she has; but still in all, she's always been in my life," Rathbone said. "I think about her a lot, about how she's doing. I'm so glad she's finally happily married and settled. I can't imagine my life without her."

Some college aid policies see changes
As tiny number of schools throw money at aid, will others feel ripples?
Associated Press
When it comes to paying for college, cash-strapped families have had a few good tidings of late. A string of elite, private colleges have announced major boosts in financial aid.
Duke kicked things off two weeks ago with a plan to spend an extra $13 million on aid by capping loans and eliminating any required parental contribution from families earning under $60,000. Two days later, Harvard said it would tap its $35-billion endowment to eliminate loans entirely from its student aid and replace them with scholarships. It will also spend millions helping families that are better-off, even those earning well into six figures.
Now, nobody wants to be left behind.
The University of Pennsylvania, Pomona,
Swarthmore, Haverford and Tufts all announced they would eliminate loans more than doubling the small number of schools promising all students a debt-free graduation.
About time, some say. At four-year private colleges, average tuition and fees rose 6.3 percent this year to $23,712, according to the College Board.
At elite private schools, the full list price, with room and board, is typically double that. Meanwhile, endowments at those places have soared. Harvard's increased nearly $6 billion last year more than all but about a half-dozen schools have altogether. Michael Dannenberg, a scholar at the New America Foundation, notes that's also approximately the figure Congress spent this year to cut student loan interest rates from 6.8 percent to 3.4 percent for the whole country.
College tuition
A majority of full-time undergraduate college students at private schools are expected to pay between $24,000 to 26,999 for tuition for 2007-08.
$36,000 and over 33,000-35,999
30,000-32,999
27,000-29,999
24,000-26,999
17%
10,999
So what's making elite schools more generous now?
Pressure to act on affordabil-ity has been building from several quarters, including parents, lawmakers, and alumni, some of whom think their alma maters have gotten greedy with their pricing power. And colleges jumped at once in part to grab attention during the season when high school seniors are making final decisions about where to apply.
The next question is how many families will feel the benefit. After all, the schools involved enroll the tiniest sliver of American college students. Fewer than one in five college students attend private institutions, and most of those attend less selective and expensive institutions than those lately in the news.
Says David Warren, president of the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities: "There's no question when Harvard acts on any issue it has an impact. It's the stone in the pond and it will reach every institution."
The Harvards of the world set the tone for what other institutions will do, once they can afford it. And these latest announcements reflect a
recognition in the top circles of higher education that college costs a lot even for middle- and even upper-middle-class families.
The latest initiatives clearly target that group. Most of these schools had already eliminated loans for the poorest students, so the benefits of these policies come further up the income scale. In Harvard's
case, families

earning more than 90 percent of the national average will see thousands of dollars in savings.
The colleges say they have grown increasingly convinced that there is an educational value in sparing students at all levels any worry about loan repayments. Jim Bock, who heads Swarthmore's financial aid and admissions offices, remembers what it was like to have fewer choices than his classmates because of his loan debt when he grad-Swarthmore in
uated 1990.
"Two people in the $120,000 range, they could both be factory workers, first-generation (immigrants), with no retirement savings," Bock said. "They could be two school teachers."
The announcements could pressure less well-off schools to start spending more on aid, too. That sounds like good news, and it is for students and parents. But some experts worry it won't prove good for the overall cause of college affordability.

breaks ground, according to the bank.
The various officials at the banks all answer the question of why so many new bank branches when the residential market is in the shredder by saying partly it's a result of the delay in the process of relocating most were planned during better times and partly it's because banks see Citrus as a very solid, growing upscale market with the right demographics and a good future.
Though it may offer home builders and Realtors little immediate solace, the bankers see the current downturn as part of a reoccurring cycle of varying depths of up and down but one that will reverse in the near future.
Two longtime residents will be steering two of the bank branches. Pat Fitzpatrick, the executive vice-president and marketing executive for Orange Bank, is currently working hard to get the Inverness office open. Fitzpatrick worked for Citrus Bank when it was opening in 1998 and before it ultimately became Mercantile Bank. He was with them for seven years before going to Orange, with opened in the Kash n' Karry shopping center in Crystal River in 2005.
Fitzpatrick said his branches, like all banks these days, have pretty much the same kinds of services and products and so, like all the other managers, he said it's the banks personality and way of doing business that distinguishes them.
"We are a community bank," Fitzpatrick said of his. "We don't have square pegs and round holes." He said the bank is willing to think out of the box, adding, "If we can figure out a way to do it, we will."
He said there is always a place for a community bank, because like the local home-cooking restaurant, it's where people know you by name and you're comfortable. People come to his bank, he said, because they felt they were just a number at a big bank
"If you bank with us, we know who you are," he said. He
said Janelle Johnson is the branch manger in Crystal River and Judi Yahyavi will be the head teller in Inverness.
On the current economic conditions, Fitzpatrick said, "In my opinion, it's not gloom and doom."
Don Turner, the senior vice president of Center State Bank, is also a longtime Citrus County resident. He started with the former Flagship bank in 1982 that soon became Sun Bank.
He will be moving into the new two-story branch office being built on State Road 44 east near the Hess gas station from the bank's temporary location in the South Square Plaza on U.S. 19 at the south end of Crystal River.
He said the advantage in dealing with his community bank is, "all the decisions are made locally. We have local autonomy."
That allows, for example, decisions on most loans to be made quickly. Even large loans go to a loan committee that is local, too, again resulting in quicker decisions than banks that have to defer to Atlanta or Birmingham, he said.
His bank will also stress knowing its customers personally. And, he said, "We have people answering the phones not machines."
Burt Bennett is managing the Inverness office, and the new Crystal River office should be opening in the middle of February. Turner said it will have some lease space on the second floor for an attorney's office or title company and a conference room that the public will have access to.
Superior Bank will be the new kid on the block It is headquartered in Birmingham, Ala. And its Florida headquarters is in Tampa. It has branches in Florida from Venice to Spring Hill.
Superior spokesman Tom Yung said his company saw an opportunity in Citrus with some former AmSouth/Regions buildings coming available. "We think that is a great opportunity," he said noting the steady growth of the county and the potential for a continuation of that with its available land and affordable prices. From the banking point of view, he said, "It's a very solid market."
Yung said his company offers
competitive products and services that all the banks offer, but his strives to set itself apart in the way it delivers those loans, accounts and investments. He said Superior is a community bank that delivers its products and services through people, not machines.
"We are a people to people company," he said, adding that's why people choose to live in a community like Citrus they like the personalized service. "Banking to us is not cookie cutting," he said. Learning individuals and their needs and then providing the services and products proactively is the way his bank operates, he said.
Jack Reynolds is the senior vice president at the Homosassa Springs Bank, which is a member of the local Brannen banks family and the oldest bank system in the county. He is also a longtime member and past president of the Citrus County Economic Development Council.
He said recent bank mergers offered a unique opportunity for some of the companies to locate or take over branch offices in Citrus. Reynolds said the coming of the bank branches is a good sign that a number of companies see a bright future in the county and are making the move in spite of the current downturn.
Financial services are one of the target industries for economic development, he said. Their pay and benefits are adequate and they are a clean industry.
As a banker, he said, "Overall, the competition is good for folks. Without competition, you have no incentive for good service." As long as there is enough business, it's good for the local economy, he said, adding that his own bank would continue to deliver the kind of service that has won its business over the years in the marketplace.
Reynolds said he shares the view that the building and housing market will be coming back, but he said he didn't pretend to have a crystal ball on when except that it eventually would. The inevitable cycle, though, is why economic develop seeks to draw a diversity of new businesses so that a diversified economy can help soft the down cycles, he said.

PRIEST
;,<;, Continued from Page 1A
i' He said he cannot afford to 1 pay any child support because
of' $90,000 in medical bills from L; numerous hospital stays. 'iCavanagh said he suffered a
stroke two years ago and was h hospitalized three times with .pulmonary embolisms, a.; Lipka's attorney is demand-; ing that Cavanagh provide proof of his medical records and bills. .'. :Cavanagh has a Jan. 16 deposition scheduled in Lakeland, i Cavanagh, in interviews, blamed problems on his ex-wife and his current wife's ex-husband. He said the ex-husband's family is causing trouble i because Cavanagh and Rhonda, who married in October, want custody of her two children.
He claimed Rhonda's ex-husband and his family are harassing him with untrue allegations. [ He also said that harassment would drive him from the community.
' "As soon as we get custody, we'll be able to leave," Cavanagh said.
([ Priest's past called into question
A man identifying himself as .Father Sweeny called the Chronicle newsroom earlier i this month to suggest a feature story be written about ,. Cavanagh, a priest in the newly formed Roman Orthodox Catholic Church. ,1 i The result was the Dec. 15 Religion section cover, which .showed a large photo of Cavanagh standing in the chapel jnside his home. Above the photo, a headline read, "Bishop Just Joe.'"
, Cavanagh who spelled his name Cavanaugh to a reporter
for the Religion section story spoke of being a bishop in the
i new church, which he was starting. He named his order Our Lady of the Cross Community of
. Marian Franciscans.
In the story, Cavanagh said he .split from the Roman Catholic i Church because he wanted to be | married and ordained. He said he was ordained in 2002 in the
English Catholic Church, which
no longer exists.
,'. He said he then applied for .ordination to the North American Old Catholic Church, but walked away from that
, church because some members
are pro-choice on abortion.
That isn't true, said the Rev. Michael Seneco, archbishop of the North American Old Catholic Church in Washington,
i D.C. Seneco said Cavanagh's application was rejected
. because he didn't disclose his arrest record.
-. After the Chronicle story was
*, published, Seneco sent
.(, Cavanagh an e-mail demanding that Cavanagh publicly retract
"his statement that some members of the church are pro-
h choice and that he was a mem-
. ber of that church.
In an interview last week, Cavanagh said he was admitted
., as a member of the clergy to the Order of Servant Franciscans, a religious order of the North
"American church. ..^However, Seneco said Cavanagh left that order on his own and now has no affiliation
'.with the North American Old
,, Catholic Church.
, Seneco also provided the
, newspaper an e-mail response
'that Cavanagh sent him at 1:15 a.m. Tuesday in which he
claimed to be in Europe. Cavanagh also said in the e-mail that he had recently been consecrated a bishop.
A Chronicle reporter spoke by telephone with Cavanagh on Tuesday afternoon. He was at his Beverly Hills home and said he couldn't come to the newspaper office for an interview because his car was broken down in the driveway.
Cavanagh said Saturday he doesn't recall sending the e-mail to Seneco. "I've had a lot of things on my mind," he said.
Charges tied to bad check, fraud
On Monday, two days after the story was published, someone told a reporter that Cavanagh had an arrest record.
A day later, the newspaper learned that Cavanagh was jailed briefly in November in Polk County for failing to pay child support
A reporter interviewed Cavanagh by phone on Tuesday, at his home Wednesday and again by phone on Friday and Saturday. Cavanagh denied any wrongdoing in the criminal matter and placed blame of his child-support problems with his ex-wife and medical bills that rendered him broke.
Cavanagh, still married to his first wife and living in Lake Wales, was chaiged in June 2004 with three felonies and one misdemeanor in connection with a check issued at an antiques store.
According to the Polk County Sheriff's Office, Cavanagh wrote a check for $190 at the Inglenook Antiques and Collectibles. The check was drawn on the account of John J. MacLean, who was the grandfather of his then-wife, Diana.
Reports said Cavanagh filled out the check at the store in the owner's presence, wrote a driver's license number on the check, and then signed MacLean's name.
MacLean, the report said, had died two years earlier The driver's license number was fake. There was no money in the bank account to cover the check, reports said.
He was charged with criminal use of personal information, forgery, uttering a forged instrument and petit theft
Cavanagh denied to sheriff's officers that he wrote the check He said he paid cash for the items and that someone must have stolen one of the checks from his vehicle.
Cavanagh changed his address from Lake Wales to Lecanto in September 2004, records show.
In newspaper interviews, Cavanagh said he had found work in an Ocala church and was staying temporarily with the church's bishop and his wife.
Cavanagh said he did nothing wrong in the criminal case and said he was set up by his wife's friends. He said his attorney suggested Cavanagh offer the store-owner $500 to drop the charges; Cavanagh said the bishop lent him the money, but that the storeowner didn't take it
Cavanagh pleaded guilty in November 2004 to the charges and the judge withheld adjudication. He was placed on three years' probation, ordered to pay restitution and fined $1,000, records show.
He said he pleaded guilty because he couldn't afford to pay an attorney to fight the charges. The probation was terminated early in February 2006.
MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle file
The Rev. Joe Cavanagh has a chapel in his Beverly Hills home, though documents question his background.
Friend tells court Ca^nagh died
Diana Cavanagh filed for divorced in Augur* 20C1, after 16 years of marriage. She and Joseph Cavanagh have three children.
In October, Cavanagh wrote a response to the divorce petition. In it, he said that Diana Cavanagh refused to accompany him to Ocala for his new job and that he was hospitalized there with clots in his lungs. He said his then-wife did not believe the serious nature of the illness.
In his response to the petition, Cavanagh wrote that she abandoned him. He asked that the divorce be delayed.
"I wish for some time for all parties to cool off, and I am in current position of being accepted into a new church as clergy, but it takes a little time to verify document and to be excepted (sic) I request that the courts push this case off till next year because it is my opinion that she is not serous and is being pressured by others who do not have her best and the children interest in mind," he wrote.
The parties were divorced in August 2005. Although the final judgment includes a divorce settlement that is initialed by both Cavanaghs at the bottom of each page, and signed by both at the end, Cavanagh insists he never saw it and that his signatures are forged.
Circuit Court Judge Bruce Smith, however, placed much blame on Cavanagh. His order said that Cavanagh "incurred substantial debt in joint names" without his wife Diana Cavanagh's consent It also said that Joseph Cavanagh was unavailable and refused contact with his then-wife and their children since the separation.
The judge gave custody of the children to Diana Cavanagh, with no obligation to discuss co-parenting decisions with Joseph Cavanagh. The decision allows Cavanagh visitation only with

Diana Cavanagh's approval.
The terms for divorce calls for Cavanagh to pay $1,194.31 a month in child support, which includes $9,908 in arrears from the time of separation.
Tn March 2006 came the first letter from Father Sweeny.
The note, which includes Cavanagh's divorce file case number, reads: "As of 03/17/2006, Fr Cavanagh has passed away. The courts were well aware of his condition. He died in Calif. The death certificate will be sent to the courts in Polk County as soon as they are available."
In that letter, Sweeny asks that no more notices be sent to a Beverly Hills address because the home belongs to friends. "If you need an address to send information too (sic) this is were (sic) all information is to be sent Via Alta Bella, 6 Bologna Italy 40126 Attn: Chancellor, and Vice General."
Cavanagh said he was unaware of Sweeny's note. He also said he didn't know how Sweeny knew the case number He said he and Sweeny rarely keep in touch.
Then in October 2006, Sweeny sent another correspondence. It was faxed to the Polk County Court using a cover sheet from Rusaw Homes in Beverly Hills. On the "from" line is written "Fr Sweeny." Above that, hand written, reads, "regards to Fr. Cavanagh."
George Rusaw, owner of Rusaw Homes, said Friday he never heard of Father Sweeny or Joe Cavanagh, nor did he know how something on his letterhead ended up in a Polk County divorce file.
"That is plumb curious," Rusaw said.
Sweeny's correspondence included a short note from "The
Table of the Abbott," with an address at the bottom of the page in Trappist, Ky.
"To whom it may concern: Peace," it began. "Fr. Joe (Joseph Cavanagh) our Brother is here in seclusion. He is being treated...for his medical condition. He will return to his home in Florida, November 30th."
The signature, without any printed name, is unreadable.
Another letter, this one on the letterhead of "Rev. Father John Paul Sweeny, S.T.D", accompanied that note. It reads, in part:
"My name is Fr John. I am Fr Joseph's superior. I ordered him to the Abbey for his medical needs."
The letter asks that a court hearing be postponed.
Diana Cavanagh asked the court to locate her ex-husband so that the state could force him to pay child support. She also claimed in court documents that Cavanagh and Father Sweeny are the same person, and she included numerous e-mails that Sweeny sent to members of Cavanagh's family.
In interviews, Cavanagh flatly denied that he and Sweeny are the same. He repeated that he doesn't know why Sweeny sent e-mails and letters to the court, or why Sweeny would say that Cavanagh was dead.
Cavanagh told a reporter that Sweeny couldn't be reached by phone because he is traveling out the country. He provided Sweeny's e-mail address, which the reporter used to send one message on Wednesday and another one Friday asking for assistance with this story and to clarify why Sweeny told the court that Cavanagh was dead. As of Saturday afternoon, no reply was received.
Cavanagh: 'We're going to leave'
In September, Cavanagh filed a motion asking for modification in the child support payments, which as of October reached $37,743 in arrears. He also asked for contact with his children.
Cavanagh said he has no job due to medical concerns and he owes $90,000 in medical bills. The Department of Revenue filed a motion in November seeking proof from Cavanagh that he cannot work
In response to Cavanagh's request for visitation, his ex-wife, now Diana Lipka, filed a motion in late October asking that her ex-husband undergo a psychological exam.
"The former husband has displayed conduct and actions toward the former wife, the court, his family and other parties that question his mental stability and which may put the children in jeopardy of harm if any contact is now granted," the motion reads.
Cavanagh said in an interview he does not oppose the evaluation, but he plans to file a motion asking that a judge require the same thing of his ex-wife.
In the meantime, Lipka's attorney also is demanding that Cavanagh provide medical records and statements proving both his medical condition and the debt he says prevents him from paying child support A deposition is set for January.
Cavanagh said Friday he plans to show proof of his medical history.
He also said that his days in Citrus County are numbered.
"We decided that when all this is over," Cavanagh said, "we're going to leave."

Veteran s Notes
Sunday, December 23, 2007 15A
Commander 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 Phones 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.
Wanted: music and movies for our troops abroad and in VA hospitals for Christmas. Good CDs, DVDs and VHS tapes sought donations welcome, but will purchase. Call Gary Davis at 382-1883.

Citrus County (FL) Chronicle
Purple Heart recipient home
Computer CLASSES
Special to the Chronicle
On Sunday, Dec. 16, a Citrus County Heroes Welcome was observed at Outback Steak House in Inverness. Friends, family and various military organizations were on hand to welcome home one of Citrus County's finest, Spc. Jonathan A. Mills, with the coordination of the Barbara Mills' Hero's Welcome Home committee who gave this two-time Purple Heart medal recipient the "Purple Carpet Treatment"
Mills was welcomed home from his tour of duty from the Iraqi theater of operations while stationed with Alpha Company of the 1st Cavlary Division in Balad, Iraq, about 50 miles north of Baghdad in the middle of the "Sunni Triangle." Mills, a lifelong Citrus County resident, is a graduate of Lecanto High School, class of 2005, and has accomplished many of life's goals in just two-plus years since joining the U.S. Army. Mills returned home just in time for the first birthday of his child, Mikhail A Mills, later this month.
Mills, an infantryman, was responsible for the training of the Iraqi Army (IA) and Iraqi Police Force (IP) and helping them set up check points throughout the country. He instructed them in what to look for in vehicles and on people and how to defend their ground. He also ran coordinated day and night patrols with the Iraqi Army.
During Mills' 15-month tour of duty he was injured by enemy fire not once but twice and received Two Purple Heart medals for his actions in direct support of the global war on terrorism. This didn't stop this brave young man from continuing to defend his county as he just found out that his superiors recommended him for the prestigious Silver Star medal, which can only be awarded by the commander in chief.
Specialist Mills is a highly decorated infantryman with the Purple Heart medal (two awards), Army Commendation medal, Army Achievement medal, Iraqi Campaign medal, Global War on Terrorism medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary medal, National Defense Service medal, Army Good Conduct medal and numerous certificates of commendation from generals.
Special to the Chronicle
From left are: Bob Huscher, executive secretary, Fleet Reserve Branch 186; Ernie Tucker, chaplain, Aaron A. Weaver Purple Heart Chapter 776; J. B. Haskins, commander, Aaron A. Weaver Purple Heart Chapter 776; Specialist Jonathan A. Mills; Barbara Mills, founder of Citrus County Heroes; and Jay Conti, public relations officer, American Legion Post No. 155 and Citrus County Heroes.
The Silver Star medal that Mills is recommended for is the fourth-highest military decoration that can be awarded to a member of any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. It is also the third-highest award given for valor (in the face of the enemy). The Silver Star is awarded for gallantry in action against an enemy of the United States. It may be awarded to any person who, while serving in any capacity with the U.S Armed Forces, distinguishes him or herself by extraordinary heroism. The Silver Star is the successor decoration to the Citation Star, which was established, by an act of Congress on July 9, 1918. On July 19,1932, the secretary of war approved the Silver Star medal to replace the Citation Star The original Citation Star is incorporated into the center of the Silver Star medal, and the ribbon for the Silver- Star medal is based closely on the Certificate of Merit medal.
When the Awards Board approves the Silver Star medal for Mills, it would put him with some elite company of some highly notable names in American History. Notable Silver Star recipients include: Adm. Arleigh Burke, Gen. Wesley Clark, Col. David Haskell Hackworth (10 Silver Stars; three in the Korean War and seven in the Vietnam War), Gen. Douglas
MaeArthur (10 Silver Stars, seven Citation Stars in World War I and three Silver Stars in World War II, the seven Citation Stars were converted to Silver Star Medals upon an act of Congress in 1932), Audie Murphy, Lt Col. Oliver North, Gen. George S. Patton Jr., Maj. Gen. George S. Patton (formerly George Patton IV), Cpl. Pat Tillman, Sen. James "Jim" Webb Jr. and Brig. Gen. Charles "Chuck" Yeager.
With more servicemen and woman returning home before the New Year and a lot more in 2008, Barbara Mills wants to keep this program going in 2008 and beyond. Citrus County life-long resident and 21-year Naval veteran Jay Conti volunteered to be her assistant, as well as her public relations person. She hopes that the last basket would be as full as the first
"This program I started wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for the generosity of the Citrus County merchants, the American Legion, VFW and other veteran organizations donating items or funds to fill the welcome home baskets. I now have more help, but we can always use more," said Mills. To see how your store or organization can help with welcome home baskets, call Barbara Mills at 422-6236 or visit the new Web site
www.CitrusCountyHeroes.org.

Travel TIPS
When traveling to developing countries, bring a surge protector as well as a power adapter. Adapters don't protect against surges, which occur frequently and can destroy electronics like laptops.
Also, stay connected wherever you are by researching and jotting down WiFi hotspots in your destination. Jiwire for instance, lists thousands of Internet locations in nearby and far-flung places. The Web site also lists which locations are free.

If your hotel charges for use of its fitness center, ask the hotel or check the phone book for a local YMCA or community center, which typically offers day passes for a small fee. If you prefer to exercise outdoors, contact the local runners' club for safe route suggestions.

Planning to shop in a country whose language you don't know? Take a calculator. Even if shopkeepers, street vendors or market dealers don't speak English, they understand the language of numbers. Careful shoppers can haggle well, letting their calculators do the talking. But get the exchange rate down before you start clicking.
When shipping items home that you have bought abroad, take a photo of them first. It will provide proof of what your purchases
looked like in case they are damaged or switched en route.

Watch out with your flight connections.
Found a great deal by buying connecting flights on different airlines to your ultimate destination? Fine, but if those tickets are nonrefundable, don't expect any sympathy or help if you miss a connection. If you're flying on one ticket, the airline or airlines involved are bound to try and help you if a connection is missed. But if you have two tickets, you are considered a new passenger each time you show up at a ticket counter.
For example, if your connection from Washington to Miami is late and thus you miss your flight from Miami to Brazil, the latter carrier will consider you as being no different from any other no-show. Our advice: Build in plenty of time to make your connection. And if going the two-ticket route saves you that much money, plan to spend a bit of it staying overnight at your connection destination, which raises your odds of making the connecting flight on time.

How long should you bug an airline about finding your misplaced bags before giving up and filing a lost luggage claim? Most airlines will allow you to make a claim for compensation after 10 days. If they
compensate you then subsequently find the luggage, they'll still return it to you, and won't likely ask that the money be returned.
Now that the Canadian dollar is worth about the same amount as the U.S. dollar, you'll have to work harder to find travel bargains to our neighbor to the north. You can usually save on both airfares and car rentals if, instead of flying to a Canadian city, you fly to the closest U.S. city and rent a car to drive the rest of the way.

Always pack an eye shield, even if you aren't flying. The mask will block out bright city lights that stream through cheap hotel curtains, or dim a companion's hotel reading light. And if you use the kind of mask that can be heated in a microwave or chilled in a refrigerator, you can get quick relief for dry, irritated or puffy eyes.

For frequent-flier miles, don't forget that you earn points when you use the airlines' partner hotels, car rental companies and other establishments.
For example, with United, you can gain points shopping at Safeway, ordering flowers from Florist.com and signing up for Netflix.

Boy Scouts support troops with treats
Special to the Chronicle
Florida's Gulf Ridge Council, Boy Scouts of America, is joining Boy Scout Councils across the country asking Americans to join "Operation Popcorn" to show their support of America's troops serving all over the world. Through the program, civilians and corporations can donate $25 of Boy Scout popcorn products to active-duty troops and their families during the Boy Scouts' annual popcorn sale this fall.
Boy Scouts from all over the country are hoping to have 300,000 donations before the end of December, which would translate into approximately 750 tons 50 tractor-trailer loads of popcorn treats. The Scouts have partnered with SupportOurtYoops.org to deliver the popcorn to military bases, ships, and aircraft carriers around the world.
"A lot of our troops are former Scouts, or
have family members and friends who are Boy Scouts," said Warren Wenner, Scout executive and CEO of the Gulf Ridge Council, "so they look forward to the annual popcorn sale and special popcorn treats. We are thrilled that the Boy Scouts are offering Americans the opportunity to give the troops a taste of home."
An initial shipment of more than 35 tons of popcorn has already gone to Navy Sailors and Marines stationed in the Pacific Ocean, transported by the USNS Flint, a 564-foot ammunition ship. Each case comes with a "thank-you" card to the troops, provided by the Scouts. A second shipment... this time more than 700 tons if the Scouts meet their goal... will be sent to troops around the entire world at the end of the sale in December.
Every year, the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts of the Gulf Ridge Council sell popcorn door-to-door to raise money for local Scouting programs. The money raised
from the sales remain with the Council and is shared with the Cub Packs and Scout Troops actually doing the selling, to fund their camping programs, handicraft, and field activities.
In addition to donating through Gulf Ridge Council Headquarters, popcorn purchases for the troops can also be made through Pack 449 (at the West Citrus Elk's Lodge 2693). Call Myrna Boulerice at 628-5079 for your donations. You can also call the Council Service Center at (813) 872-2691. .
Popcorn purchases for our troops can also be made through the Web site, www.orderpopcorn.com. You can use order key TEH68UW. Boy Scout popcorn is produced by Weaver Popcorn Company.
SupportOurTroops.org is a non-partisan, non-political civilian organization welcoming civilians, active-duty families, veterans and people from all political parties.

Citrus County (FL) Chronicle
Not only the stupid seem to suffer from Stupidity
Like millions of people around the world, I struggle with a severe learning disability. It often causes me to say things that I regret, it wreaks emotional and financial damage to my friends and family, and costs my employer tens of thousands of dollars a year.
No, it's not something trendy like ADD or ADHD or even AADD. It's not something all successful people brag about having, like dyslexia. It's an embarrassing and rarely mentioned disorder that I have long kept secret, afraid my friends, neighbors and coworkers would find out. I suffer from Stupidity.
No one brags about having Stupidity. There's no pill you can take for that, there's no support group, no summer camp. You just have to learn
to live with it. Parents who have no -
problem telling the world their child has ADD or ADHD wouldn't be caught dead standing up at the PTA meeting and saying, "My kid's stupid. What special programs have you got for that?"
Even in this modern day and age, Stupidity still carries a stigma with itsome people even believe that stupid people aren't quite as good as "normal" people even though we've had stupid presidents, stupid socialites, stupid generals, stupid movie stars, stupid bankers and stupid CEOs. Stupidity knows no borders. Many people suffer from Stupidity and don't even know it teenagers, for example.
My friend Sal thinks the presidential faces on Mount Rushmore were carved by the wind. Yet he holds a well-paying job and has a family. His wife and many of his children are non-stupid.
Stupidity has never become a fashionable disorder. None of the morning shows has ever done a weeklong series on it, none of the hosts has admitted to having raised stupid children.
Little is known about stupidity, even though scientists say that as much as half of the entire population is below average. An exaggeration, no doubt, but it's a well-known fact there are millions of stupid people. Stupidity is an equal-opportunity disability that strikes men and
women, young and old. It strikes teachers and students, princes and paupers, politicians and voters, athletes and, well, a whole lot of athletes.
Stupidity can strike without warning. Who hasn't married someone and then smacked their forehead 10 minutes later and said, "What was I thinking?" What CEO hasn't paid himself $100 million and then fired people in a cost-cutting measure?
An especially tragic form of the disease is Adult Onset Stupidity (AOS), which can strike without warning. One day you're perfectly normal and healthy, the next day you're watching TV shows about bass fishing.
For years, I hid my Stupidity from my friends, my family and my coworkers. Only my wife knew about it,
- which is amazing, because I never
even told her I was stupid; she figured it out all by herself. It used to bother me; but now, when I come home from the grocery store and she yells, "You idiot, I said 'tuna fish' not 'Tidy Flush!'" I don't take it personally. Instead of hiding my stupidity from her, I can relax at home and be as stupid as I like. She won't let me cook or clean or do the laundry because I always "do it wrong." While she does the dishes, I watch TV Sometimes I think, "Who's stupid, now?" But I'm not stupid enough to say that out loud.
Over the years, I've gotten good at finding ways to hide my Stupidity from others. When I misspelled the company's name on this year's Christmas cards, I blamed the stupid printers. When I bought the lead paint for the company's Day Care Center because it was on sale, I blamed the stupid paint store. When I forget to mail things out, important things like bills and contracts, I blame the post office. My bosses always blame other people, so I figure it's the smart thing to do. I don't want them to think I'm stupid.

Woman's use of gay man as boyfriend a crutch
Dear Annie: I am a woman in love with a gay man. I told "Geoff" how I feel, hoping it would alleviate the feelings, and for a while, it did. But the feelings are coming back and I can't seem to control them.
Geoff and I go on "dates" that I absolutely love. We joke around a lot about our relationship. I am not seeing anyone else at the moment and wonder if this is the reason why I am so crazy about him. I get very jealous when he's with other women, even though I know nothing is going to happen.
A close friend told me recently that Geoff has been confused about his sexuality for years. I'm sure this is why I still have hope that one day he and I can be together. Lately, I've been waking up in the morning thinking about kissing him.
I want to talk to Geoff about this, but I don't want to come on too strong or seem obsessed. I don't expect Geoff to feel the same about me. Right now, he believes I've gotten past this, and a part of me wants to keep it that way. I want this craziness to stop before everything gets out of hand. What should I do? Terribly Confused
Dear Conftised: We think Geoff is flirting with you just enough to keep your hopes alive. Confusion about his sexuality could explain it, but it's also possible he simply enjoys having that kind of power over you. You need to spend less time with Geoff and more with men who are actually available. Geoff has become a crutch a way to avoid other, more intimate relationships and there's nothing wrong with telling him that. Let your friends know you are looking, and see if you can turn this slightly unbalanced relationship with Geoff into a true friendship without unrealistic expectations.
Dear Annie: I have been married to a wonderful woman for 25 years. It's an ideal marriage except for one small detail.
My sweetheart is ALWAYS late for everything. In 25 years, we have never been on time for an appointment, a social gathering, dinner, etc. After all this time, it's beginning to wear on me. Since she is otherwise terrific, should I contin-
ue to accept this or keep trying to get her to be punctual? Anytime I bring it up, she becomes very defensive. Seattle Suburbs
Dear Seattle: Some people cannot plan their time well, others like the attention or control that comes from making people wait. We doubt, after 25 years, that your wife will become more punctual unless she works on it. If you are willing to use drastic measures, you can tell her you will leave on time and if she's not ready, you will go alone and she is welcome to take a taxi. If she is as wonderful, terrific and ideal as you say, we'd suffer through this annoying glitch. Maybe if you stop getting upset when she's not on time, she'll stop trying so hard to be late.
Dear Annie: I read the letter from "Stressed in Georgia," who was using pot to counter his anger and stress problems.
I am a lawyer, my wife is a doctor, and we have five children, ages 16 to 23. My wife and I have been smoking pot in moderation for 30 years. It helps us to relax, counters nausea when we have the flu and has many other medical uses to alleviate discomfort. It is safe and non-addictive, unlike alcohol, cigarettes and countless prescription drugs.
The scientific literature overwhelmingly documents its medical value. And prohibition doesn't work. Studies show it is easier for a teenager to buy marijuana than it is to buy a beer or cigarettes because those things are regulated. The majority of voters have approved the medical use of marijuana. Please help advocate the regulation of marijuana. Santa Rosa, Calif.
Dear Santa Rosa: We do, in fact, advocate the decriminalization and regulation of marijuana. However, since it is still illegal, we cannot in good conscience tell our readers to use it.

game and seems to be gaining much-needed confidence as it draws closer to its Big Ten opener Jan. 3 at Illinois.
The Florida game was circled on coach Thad Matta's calendar, sort of.
"I said in front of the team to Jamar the other day, 'They don't know what we've had to live with,'" Matta said of the lingering memories of losses to Florida. "I view Florida as one of the premier teams in college basketball right now. Last year we won 35 games and lost four and two of them were to them. This meant a lot to me."
Jai Lucas was the only Florida player in double figures with 11 points. The Gators (11-2), who shot just 33 percent from the field, were facing perhaps their toughest test of the season. They had yet to leave the state of Florida and had played most
of their games before raucous, partisan crowds.
Ohio State figured it owed Florida. After all, the Gators didn't just beat the Buckeyes twice last year on the court 86-60 in Gainesville in the regular season and 84-75 in the national title game in Atlanta but also put a 41-14 beat-down on the football team in last January's national championship game in Glendale, Ariz.
Florida was averaging 83 points but never came close to getting untracked offensively as Ohio State's defense set the tempo throughout.
"We've got a long way to go to be a good team, a competitive team, at this level," Florida coach Billy Donovan said. "I did not see our team shooting in the second half with great confidence."
In a weird statistical irony, the Gators were 4-for-23 on IB-pointers exactly what Ohio State was in the title game against Florida.
The teams were mere shadows that squared off in
the finals last April 2 in the Georgia Dome. The teams had eight players taken in the NBA draft, including five of the top 10 picks.
Florida scored the first seven points, holding the Buckeyes scoreless for the first 4'/2 minutes until Othello Hunter finally converted Ohio State's seventh shot.
But the Gators then drifted, possibly because of Ohio State's nasty zone or their own lack of efficiency or patience on offense. The Gators managed just four points over a span of almost seven minutes, watching as the Buckeyes took a 12-11 lead.
And that wasn't Florida's only lapse. It didn't have a field goal from the 9:13 mark until a steal and rapid-fire layup by Nick Calathes with two seconds remaining in the half.
The Buckeyes led 32-22 at halftime and the lead never fell below double digits in the second half. They led by as many as 18 points and coasted to the finish.
GARCIA

think he stood up to comparisons with Montana and Young, Garcia's record looks better with each passing season particularly this year, when Alex Smith and Trent Dilfer stumbled at the controls of the NFLs worst offense.
"I felt like I was able to handle my own when I was there," Garcia said. "I never had a problem battling those sorts of obstacles. I felt like going there after Joe Montana or Steve Young was a great challenge for me. I wanted to be that next quarterback they talked about I think if I had been in San Francisco for my entire career ... that maybe would have happened."
Instead, six players have started games at quarterback since Garcia left, none with any significant success. His current successor is Shaun Hill, the sixth-year veteran who won his first NFL start last week against Cincinnati.
Garcia, who took a winding road to the NFL, has particular empathy for Hill, who hadn't even thrown a pass in a game
until two weeks ago.
"It happens every single year," Garcia said. "I don't know if there is a way of reevaluating the evaluation process, but somehow, some way, there are tremendous football players out there that just don't get somebody excited about them. Some of us have to go through different leagues or bide our time until we get that opportunity. That's what Shaun has done."
Though Garcia enjoyed his greatest successes with the 49ers, his days in San Francisco were far from pacific. He quarreled at times with coach Steve Mariucci, and he became the first quarterback to be vilified by Terrell Owens, a former friend who eventually belittled Garcia's arm strength and made jokes about the sexual orientation of the squeaky-voiced quarterback who later married a Playboy model.
Garcia, Owens, Garrison Hearst and offensive linemen Derrick Deese and Ron Stone all left the team within weeks of each other as former general manager Donahue and owner York finished demolishing their 2002 playoff team in the name of salary-cap savings.
Coach Mike Nolan's team still hasn't recovered from Donahue's failed moves and awful drafting. Nolan's future is in doubt going into the 49ers' final home game and probably the final Candlestick appearance for defensive end Bryant Young, a 14-year veteran and Garcia's good friend..
"To travel back to the area that I grew up in is exciting for me," Garcia said. "It's going to be an emotional day for me. I know I'm going to have a lot.of friends and family for support in the stands."
Garcia returned to Candlestick last season with the Eagles, but didn't play in a September blowout win. Though he's focused on getting a win for the Buccaneers, he'll take a moment to enjoy perhaps his last chance to line up on his field of dreams.
"I'm really thankful for everything I was able to experience as a 49er," Garcia said. "It was a dream come true for me. A lot of great things happened to me. I've seen the highs and lows of football ever since I left San Francisco, and that has been at times difficult to deal with, but I think it's also helped me grow up."

yellow jersey and 2006 Tour de France victory ... or Dec. 13, after Marion Jones was formal-, ly stripped of her five Olympic medals.
There was so much cheatin', lyin' an' denyin' goin' on before the Daytona 500 in mid-February that even NASCAR czar Brian France felt compelled to put his foot down, smacking five teams with the toughest penalties the sport has seen just days ahead of the race.
Yet who would have guessed then the NASCAR guys were getting off easy Formula 1 officials caught team McLaren using leaked secret data'from its main rival, Ferrari, and levied a $100 million fine. Now that's racin'.
And speaking of running off with other people's cash, has anybody heard from David Beckham lately?
Pick almost any day on the calendar Sept. 17, O.J. Simpson arrested on kidnapping and assault charges; June 17, Durham, N.C., District Attorney Mike Nifong disbarred over the Duke lacrosse case and somebody was caught doing something bad, apologizing or rationalizing (or in radio personality Don Imus' case, all three).
The year started and ended with tragedy, and sometimes the innocent paid the price.
Just two hours into the new year, 24-year-old Broncos cor-nerback Darrent Williams was killed in a drive-by shooting not far from a Denver nightclub where he quarreled with friends. Last month, Washington safety Sean Taylor was gunned down in the bedroom of his home in Miami. His loss was keenly felt by family and friends who remembered a young man they believed had turned his life around. Fellow players remembered Taylor as a formidable foe, according him the unprecedented posthumous honor of a slot on the league's All-Pro team.
At the other end of the spectrum, 88-year-old Grambling football coach Eddie Robinson, his legacy already secured, lost his nearly decade-long battle with Alzheimer's disease in April. Four months later, 49ers coach Bill Walsh died at age 75, his influence and wisdom celebrated by disciples who gathered at a memorial service from every corner of the NFL and college football.
It wasn't a great year for animals, either. The sickening revelations that led to Vick's indictment, plea and 23-month sentence in a federal prison shocked even those fans used to seeing the league's stars and stand-ins alike turn up on police blotters. In late January, a much quieter but equally sad story came to a bitter end when struggling 2005 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro was euthanized.
Appalachian State won one for the little guys and set the tone for the wildest college football season in a long time by toppling mighty Michigan on the opening weekend, then beating Delaware, someone its
own size, to win an unprecedented third straight Division 1-AA championship.
Anybody who believed that faith and hard work could be more than their own reward had reason to smile when long-suffering Colts coach Tony Dungy and quarterback Peyton Manning finally wrapped their hands around a Super Bowl trophy that for so long seemed their due.
British runner and anti-drug crusader Paula Radcliffe won the New York City marathon just nine months after giving birth. Golfer Cristie Kerr won the U.S. Open after going 0 for 41 in previous majors and Justine Henin added two more tennis majors to her resume a third straight French Open and a second U.S. Open title.
Men's tennis, meanwhile, belonged again to Swiss machine Roger Federer. He won his fifth straight Wimbledon title and his fourth straight U.S. Open.
Proving the kids can play, Sidney Crosby won the NHLs Hart Trophy as most valuable player at the tender age of 19 and Morgan Pressel won the Kraft Nabisco to become LPGAs youngest major champion at the even more tender age of 18.
Tiger Woods lost some sleep due to the birth of a daughter, and some uncharacteristic hiccups down the stretch cost him the Masters and U.S. Open, where he failed to catch unknowns Zach Johnson and Angel Cabrera, respectively. But that was about all Woods lost
He clawed his way back to the top in time for the PGA Championship, the season's final major and Woods' 13th, won seven times in all and was so much better than everyone else again.
The Red Sox steamrolled the Colorado Rockies to sweep the World Series and made the Yankees so nervous that they fired Joe Torre and rehired Alex Rodriguez. The New England Patriots look like a Super Bowl lock after knocking out all comers through the first 14 games of the NFL regular season. And adding Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen make the Celtics look versatile enough to plow through the NBAs Eastern Conference, yet swift enough to steal the crown from defending champion San Antonio or anybody else out of the West.
Florida's Gators, meanwhile, are in need of a larger trophy case. They pulled off an unprecedented calendar sweep of the college football and basketball titles, both at the expense of Ohio State. The feat was even more impressive, considering that Florida's successful defense as hoops champion marked the first time it had been done in 15 years.
But this being 2007, both towns arrived at celebratory dinners only to find a fly in the soup.
"Spygate" gave Patriots-haters a stick to hack at, rather than measure, the accomplishments of Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and Co. and inspired talk of asterisks from the likes of Don Shula.
Florida basketball coach Billy Donovan had problems
GET THE WORD OUT
with cameras, too. Every time he stepped in front of one, he was either stuffing his foot in his mouth or pulling it out.
"I think this team should go down as one of the best teams in college basketball history. Not as the most talented and not on style points but because they encompassed what the word 'team' means," Donovan said after winning the title.
Not long after that, though, Donovan opted out of that "team" and bolted to the NBAs Orlando Magic for a 5-year, $27.5 million deal. Then he quickly opted back in at Florida.
Talk about changing yoiir mind. When the new year dawned, aging Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre was choking back tears. He'd just hammered the Chicago Bears in a meaningless 2006 regular-season finale that was billed as a possible farewell appearance.
Fast forward to this season. The point'is moot The 38-year-old has rarely been better, leading the Packers into the postseason with a first-round bye and claiming sole ownership of just about every important career mark for a quarterback
"Tremendous player. Best competitor I've ever seen," said Packers icon and Hall of Fame quarterback Bart Stair. "I think he's meant more than I have words to describe."
That was rarely a problem for NFL commissioner Roger Good ell, if only because of how many times he had to send players Pacman Jones, Chris Henry, Tank Johnson, Vick to their rooms for violating! a personal-conduct policy he helped draw up.
His NBA counterpart, David Stern, spent the previous few seasons mandating how the league's players should behave and even dress, then discovered he might have been lecturing the wrong group of employees. Donaghy was snared by an FBI investigation, then charged with betting on games, including some he worked, and providing inside information to others to help them win bets.
All the momentum generated by a faster-paced product, LeBron James' first foray deep into the playoffs and the most promising draft duo in years, Greg Oden and Kevin Durant, skidded to a halt.
"My reaction was I can't believe it's happening to us," Stern said. ;
The same sentiment bugged baseball commissioner Bud Selig all summer. As Bonds relentlessly ran down Hank Aaron's home-run mark Selig was asked repeatedly whether he planned to be on hand for No. 756.
"All of this will have to be played by ear," he replied. "I do have a day job."
So naturally, Bonds hit the big one at night, in San Francisco without Selig in attendance, then declared: "This record is not tainted at all. Al all. Period."
Three mouths later, he was indicted on charges of lying to a federal grand jury about steroid use.

out the window
A special kind of strength
As we prepare for the Christmas holiday, I have had some very mixed experiences.
Last week, I held Finnian Sean Mulligan in my arms, Finn, my grandson, is just 8 months old and this is his first Christmas season.
He obviously doesn't understand Christmas, but he does understand the connection he has with family. It's the first emotional attachment we all have, and it will always remain the strongest
Finn can slobber on my shirt and I think it's a great thing.
Later that same week, I found myself sitting with Tim Hess, the former operations manager of the Chronicle and a coworker of mine for more than 25 years.
Tim and I were meeting with state Rep. Ron Schultz, R-Homosassa, and Citrus County School Board member Pat Deutschman to try to convince the state representative to support legislation that will place restrictions on young drivers.
Earlier this year, Tim's daughter Melissa and her best friend Molly were killed in an accident on State Road 200. They were shopping in Ocala and were returning home when the accident occurred.
Tim's lifer-mas nbtrfreen the same since.

Cool on the outside, but stormy inside
There was no Shades of Gray column last Sunday. The reason: I was feeling blue.
Late in the week, an old friend called to offer an early Merry Christmas and to catch me up on the small-town news in western New York State.
One thing he mentioned the main thing he mentioned hit me hard. An old, old friend of mine, since age 8 or so, committed suicide.
That was the last thing I expected to hear.
On the outside, John had it all. Behind the scenes though, there were issues and events that would negatively impact most any kid.
ON THE OUTSIDE
I always looked forward to summertime. My family would spend lots of time at a cottage on Lake Ontario. John's folks had a place down the line from ours.
His parents were really nice and seemed an ideal couple. I remember seeing them kiss once and tell each other how lucky they were to be together. For some reason, that made an impression.
John's parents gave their kids a lot of leeway and were more liberal than my parents.
My friend's dad actually handed his older brother some cash one day and told him to

Finally there's some hope on impact fees
The county commission is finally going in the right direction on impact fees. Last Tuesday, the commission decided to have a January public hearing to consider rolling back impact fees to their 2002 level.
Commissioners John Thrumston, Dennis Damato and Gary Bartell were willing to move quicker, but the law requires a public hearing be scheduled and advertised before any such decision can be made.
Commissioners have heard the cries of workers and business owners that the county's high impact fees are a contributing factor to the economic slowdown we're now experiencing. The board has indicated it will do its part to put people back to work.
Board members said they favor rolling back the impact fees to 2002 levels nearly $10,000 on a single family home to make them more competitive with other counties in the state. A 90-day test period was suggested, with more permanent
THE ISSUE:
Impact fees.
OUR OPINION:
Follow through on the reduction.
reductions coming after that.
During the Tuesday discussions, board members also agreed that the current "change-of-use" impact fees are too high and they need to be reduced or eliminated. Charging small businesspeople huge impact fees for trying to reuse existing buildings is a theory without logic. It's good to see that the majority of the commissioners are finally listening to what the public is saying.
No one should be deluded to think that a reduction in impact fees will produce a total economic turnaround in Citrus County. There are too many negative economic conditions on the national front for the actions of our commission to make a huge difference.
But the actions of our commission send the message that our local politicians are willing to do what they can locally to help any way they can. And to the unemployed workers and struggling small businesspeople, that's finally a little bit of good news.
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:
United Way of Citrus County c/o Citrus County Chronicle, 1624 N. Meadowcrest Blvd., Crystal River, FL, 34429
You can also drop off your contributions at either of our offices. Thanks for helping out

they say that he's spending a lot of money and not doing his job. Well, you know, if they read the paper, they could read and look at all the arrests that's made. I think Dawsy's doing
' a pretty good job in this county. We don't have all the crimes that they do in these other cities. I think he deserves a lot of appreciation because all they've got to do is read the paper and see where people are being arrested for break-ins and robberies and all this stuff.
Lower impact fees
What's the county got to do with telling the people to destroy their building, that they can only build it one size and they can't go any bigger. They wanted to put a sandwich place in there and sell sandwiches and pizza, but the county says, "No, you can't build one that big." Well, the
county should keep their nose out of the people's business so they could have people wanting to expect to see something here, but they don't do it... This county is going to go to heck if they don't lower these impact fees and all this other stuff.
Thanks for concern
This is a letter of appreciation. I went to a funeral Sunday for the mother of an employee of Cinnamon Sticks. And after the funeral, Cinnamon Sticks put on a whole spread for all the people who went to the funeral. They fed them all and picked up the tab. I thought that was very nice to treat their employees like that. I congratulate them on their kindness. I wanted to just say thank you to Cinnamon Sticks for being so nice to their employees.

County offices
I have lived in Citrus County as of this new upcoming year, for 40 years.
I've got to say, our county commissioners now in office definitely have their heads in the sand when it comes to common sense.
This idea to build new and additional buildings in Inverness for the property appraiser and tax collector is ridiculous. Why they do not take the vacant and open lands in the surrounding Lecanto district makes no sense to me. Having all the Citrus County government offices "centrally located" it doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand the concept of keeping the government agencies grouped together. You already have the county maintenance buildings there, along with other departments. Why not group the system together and make it in the center of the county?
Convenience is the key word to this suggestion: having the ability to go to any government agency in the county without having to drive a long distance to do it Everyone has equal distance to drive. Eventually, our little ole Citrus County is going to grow someday, and it's only going to get more crowded and the congestion worse.
The only thing I can figure, why they are not wanting to consider Lecanto, is that there must be a few people in the political system who live in Inverness and don't want to travel that far to go to work. Who the heck knows?
Our commissioners are lacking in ideas for the future of Citrus developmental issues. They need to go to one of our elementary schools and ask the kids what they think then go for it Most children out there could probably solve these decisions with less political hogwash, and get the job done right!

My Florida
My Florida is a state filled with citrus groves as far as the eye can see. My Florida's beaches were white, sandy beaches within eyesight of the road.
My Florida has such wild beauty. Our rivers flowed and never dried.
Then came Disney.
People were happy to be unto themselves. Nobody cared about another's business. Life was slow back in those days. You could drink handfuls of water out of most rivers and canals, they were so clean.
Now I realize it was the best of times. All the cars going down Main Street was somebody's parent Guys drove Ford trucks with gun racks and guns in them. Not once did anyone think to use it as a weapon against another
People were disciplined. In schools, paddlings used to happen. I do not remember it killing anyone. Without discipline children have become the ones in the news. Crimes against another for what they worked for I do
not understand why they do not discipline them in school. They will get sent to a boot camp that supposedly instills discipline. If discipline was started earlier, then no one would need boot camps or alternative schools.

Science standards
Regarding "Evolution debate hits Florida schools," Dec. 9 page 3A The difference between education and training is that education prepares students to make critical decisions based on evaluation of data. Training mandates repetition of a demonstrated task
The proposed science standards, especially No. 7 "Nature of Science" strive to squelch scientific inquiry and demand allegiance by training to the humanistic philosophy. Whether Christian or not, students of history remembering ethnic cleansing, slavery and Hitler should ardently oppose attempts to disallow the critical thinking processes of our children.
Also, this article implies that Florida test performance is poor, based on limited teaching on how life began. I challenge that too much class time and effort is spent advancing special-interest agendas, resulting in not enough time on the scientific process and study of the Earth, biology, physics, chemistry, etc.
There is a vast amount of non-controversial science to study. If evolution is not scientifically sound enough to stand without the dual crutches of the NEA and the entertainment industry, shouldn't this Trojan Horse be sent back to its builders?
Examine carefully the proposed standards at

Iconfess, this column is, to some degree, a rerun. I've used many of the same thoughts and some of the same words and phrases before. But in considering how best to say what's on my heart this Christmas season, I find no better way than to once again point to the words of "Silent Night."
Almost 200 years ago, on Christmas Eve, 1818, the carol, "Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!", was heard for the very first time during the Midnight Mass at St. Nicholas Church in
Oberndorf, Austria. The congregation listened as the voices of the assistant pastor. Father Joseph Mohr, and the choir director, Franz Gruber, rang out through the church.
Mohr wrote the words and Gruber a sl1 composed the u
melody of what -_
would become appreciated worldwide, and by all generations to come, as an awe-
Fred Brannen
inspiring hymn that vividly captures the essence of the birth of the Christ child.
"Silent night, holy night! All is calm, all is blight! 'Roundyon virgin, mother and Child! Holy Infant so tender and mild, sleep in heavenly e of peace, sleep in heav-r j enly peace."
- "Silent night, holy
night! Shepherds quake at the sight. Glories stream from heaven afar, heavenly hosts
sing Alleluia; Christ the Saviour is born, Christ the Saviour is born."
I remember the other little boys and me dressing up as shepherds, wearing bathrobes and tying scarves around our heads for the Christmas play at our church each year. We'd sit on the floor and a little girl dressed as an angel would come with the greeting that our Saviour had been born.
Even in such a simple presentation, it was driven home that the birth of our Lord was an event like no other in the
history of the world.
"Silent night, holy night! Son of God, love's pure light, radiant beams from Thy holy face, with the dawn of redeeming grace, Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth, Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth."
I rarely hear this verse sung.
Choirs and carolers usually sing the first two verses, but not the third. The truth is, I've never been, able to sing it, either. A lump will swell up in my throat and tears will fill my eyes. The words are almost too precious, too powerful, to be
sung.
"With the dawn of redeeming grace, Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth."
As always, I'd like to wish each of you readers and your family a Merry Christmas from me and mine. May the richness of His matchless grace be yours at this Christmas season and throughout the coming year.

Health insurance
Editor's note: The following letter to Citrus Memorial Health System is published at the writer's request.
I read with interest the article in the paper regarding the need for more money, more patients and your desired expansion. It is with regret that I am not allowed to use your services along with several thousand other people due to not having a suitable plan of insurance that you would accept.
I noted you stated the bulk of your patients are on Medicare or Medicaid. This is not a great puzzle, since the bulk of our people are older than 65. What is a puzzle to me is that you do not accept the newer plans on insurance.
Oh yes, I have heard the horror stories about they don't pay on time, or they don't handle this or don't handle that, but I have done a bit of research on my own regarding payment by investigating how long it takes for my plan (I have Medicare Masterpiece PPO by Universal) to pay for my chiropractic treatments. Guess what? Regular as clockwork, I pay my share at the office when treated, and 30 days or less later the insurance pays the chiropractor. Maybe they have a better billing system than you do?
I think it is a shame that I must
drive to Brooksville Regional or Spring Hill Regional, or Oak Hill Hospital in Brooksville if I have to be under hospital care for one reason or another. It also seems strange to me that they can accept my plan when you do not.
My suggestion, therefore, is to get into the real and modern world. Start doing your homework on these plans and see if you can't generate dollars by taking care of the local citizenry of Citrus County. After all, you are the only large hospital in the area and the "good old boy" attitude has got to go.

Price of oil
On Dec. 4, oil was trading at $88 a barrel, down from a high of $98.
Interesting, but perhaps meaningless. Can you tell us what price the oil companies are actually paying for a gallon of oil from Venezuela and OPEC now, 6 months ago and a year ago?
That should be a better picture of what the oil companies are actually doing to us.
Incidentally, the government is paying oil companies 51 cents a gallon for every gallon of ethanol that they blend into gasoline a good
idea to keep the price of E-10 close to regular gasoline.
But, as their cost of a gallon of gas goes up and their cost for a gallon of ethanol comes down, shouldn't that subsidy change, too? Oh, and I guess the oil companies are still getting their other subsidies.
Because of ethanol, the price of corn has soared, raising the cost of corn for food and feed. Importing ethanol would take that pressure off pricing until farmers plant more fallow fields with corn. Government loans (where needed) could help farmers afford to do that.
Apparently, we want free trade with South America, so why do we have a 54 cent a gallon tariff on imported ethanol? I guess to help the oil companies. Do they really need help making money?
One other question: How do we know if our present car can use E-10?

Show your love
I received the following letter from Jesus and hope you will print it:
It has come to my attention that many of you are upset that folks are taking My name out of the season. Maybe you've forgotten that I wasn't
actually born this time of the year. My birthday is celebrated on a day that once was a major pagan festival, and that's OK with Me. If you want to celebrate My birth at this time, just love one another.
If it bothers you that your town doesn't have a nativity scene, then just get rid of a couple holiday decorations from, your front lawn and put in your1 own small nativity scene. If all My followers did that, there wouldn't be any need for such a scene on the town square because there would be many of them all around town.
Stop worrying about people decorating holiday trees instead of Christmas trees. I made all trees. You can remember Me anytime you see any tree.
If you want to give Me a present, here is my wish list:
1. Instead of writing protest letters objecting to the way My birthday is being celebrated, write letters of love and hope.
2. Instead of giving your children a lot of gifts you can't afford and they don't need, spend some time with-them. Tell them the story of My birth, and why I came to earth to live with you. Hold them in your arms and remind them that I love them.
3. Give everyone you meet a warm smile.
4. Instead of nit-picking about what the retailers in your town call the holiday, be patient with the people who work there. Give them a warm smile and a kind word.
5. Finally, if you want to make a real statement about your belief and loyalty to Me, then behave like a Christian. Let people know by your actions that you are one of mine.
Have a most blessed Christmas and always remember? I love you, Jesus.

Enjoyable movie
We just watched a marvelous movie, "End of the Spear." Indeed, it was so good, my husband watched it twice!
The movie is about a family going to the jungles of South America to make friends. It's a true story, beautifully filmed.
Citrus County has a connection, in that the grandson of the family portrayed in the movie is a new surgeon in town, Dr. Shaun Saint! His name is listed in the credits, too.
We urge everyone to see this beautifully done movie.

Impact fees
Someone has sold us retirees a bad bill of goods on impact fees. The idea that higher impact fees would keep our taxes low isn't right. We've raised them so high that we will have very few fees collected.
We keep wasting Citrus County's money by hiring expensive consultants to come in and recommend the fees we want to charge. Reasonable fees shouldn't be so hard for the county commissioners to recommend. We have a very capable staff in our county that could do a great job with this project. They do most of the work for the consultants anyway.
We need to decide what factors are important in setting the impact fees. Items such as what's competitive with surrounding counties, how much do we need affordable housing, do we need businesses, medical clinics, how important is construction jobs to our county?
Also I only hear about negative impact from new construction. What about the jobs j new businesses create and the taxes these structures pay from now on? It's time for some sensible decisions from all our county commissioners.
Another topic being considered is a fancy septic system that is probably going to cost $18,000 to $20,000. That could be a solution to areas close to the waterways or springs but to suggest these should be mandated for the whole county is another way to make sure we don't have any affordable housing.

Free market not free
Re: "Why individual freedoms cannot be legislated."
Dr. Dixon seems to have a misunderstanding of progressive thought, not to mention the Declaration of Independence and the
Constitution. But he clearly demonstrates the basic difference between the progressive worldview and the worldview of conservatives. As Thorn Hartman points out, progressives believe that the function of government is to provide a framework so that individuals can achieve their maximum potential. Conservatives believe that since human nature is essentially evil, the individual must be controlled by church or state and that their economic well-being should be placed in the hands of the morally neutral "free market."
Many examples show this has not worked out well. I refer to the living and working conditions in the U.S. 19th century, when industrialization concentrated people in urban centers where they were exploited, allowing vast accumulation of wealth among a few. As one of these industrialists, J.E Morgan, said, "I owe the public nothing." Then there was the Russian aristocracy which forced workers into 12- to 14-hour days, seven days a week with no regard for safety, no medical care, no educational opportunities, (the population was 70 percent illiterate) and no legal m^ans to improve conditions. Charles Dickens demonstrates vividly in his novels the misery of the people under the British aristocracy in the 1800s. So much for "giving generously and alleviating suffering." j
Capitalists use water, sewer and power; they have protection from police and fire departments. Conservatives believe that the common people should support all of the costs while they keep all of the profits] Progressives believe that it is the right and responsibility of those who use the system to support it with their taxes.
I suggest Dixon try to be responsible for his family;by providing his own sewer, police and fire service. If we all had to do that, what a mess it would be. You need to support the "good and just government"
that Jefferson envisioned and refrain from promoting an aristocracy. Dixon's medical and military career does not quality him as an aristocrat

Holy war
I have been absolutely astounded how religion has jumped into the political arena among our presidential contenders regardless of political affiliation. Not since the days of John Kennedy when he had to explain his Catholicism to a group of right-wing Christian pastors his declaration of faith and an allegiance to this nation has religion been paramount in how we choose our president.
However, the "faith" question concerning both parties is a diversion from the real critical issues facing this country. I'm not voting for an American pope, I'm voting for a president I'm tired of listening to President Bush, a born-again Christian who claims to be a compassionate conservative, who constantly lies about compassion, caring and empathy for others. The new adage that applies to him is "Bush lied, thousands died."
The moralist Republicans can't get beyond abortion, gay marriage and prayers in school. Why these subjects supercede issues of greater importance, such as Iraq war, failing schools, rebuilding New Orleans, health care and global warming is astonishing.
Republican candidates tell us that we should vote for them to avoid another 9/11. They are using fear and fear alone to obscure the real issues and mask the gross incompetence of this Republican administration.
F. D. Roosevelt brought up the question of "fear" in his famous speech to the citizenry during World War II. His words still hold true today.

Christmas struggle
I have a dear friend of mine that is going through a bit of a holiday struggle. I feel that this county doesn't offer enough for families going through struggles. She has worked very hard to put herself into college, and her fiance has worked very hard to get the job that he has, yet they are struggling deeply during the holiday season. And I feel it's very sad that no one is able to help them, as well as she has given the shirt off of her back to help everyone in her past, yet in her time of need, there is no one there to help; no organization that has funds to help take care of her daughter's Christmas. She does not want anything, but all she wanted was to give her daughter a good Christmas. And all these organizations that say they're willing to help have done nothing for her. I really hope that in the future, the county is able to do more.
Check owner's manual
Read your auto manual. My Buick auto manual has a very
special footnote: "Do not use fuel containing methanol, as your Buick is not designed for it. It can corrode metal parts in your fuel system and damage plastic and rubber parts, and is not covered under warranty." The comments recently in Sound Off may have been well inten-tioned, but regarding methanol, check your owner's manual before using any type of product in your auto.
Vacuum red tide
As the daughter of a long-gone engineer way back because I'm 85 my hat's off to John Phillips. He has developed the Muck Master, and DEP should back him completely. Not only DEP, but our government program should back him. He has the answer to red tide problems. As I have been saying for more than 10 years, that a good vacuum could pull the red tide out of the ocean. John Phillips could vacuum and clean up all our lakes across the country. What a wonderful invention he has done, and may he live long to see it happen.
Fish farming
OK, Crystal River, I've got one for you to munch on: We have these folks who acquired a low-level swamp lot, plugged off the drain to the canal j which, by the way, we taxpay- ; ers just put in not too long ago had a well drilled, and they're now pumping water into that lot so they can raise fish. I'm sure this takes thousands of gallons of water per day to maintain an adequate level. I feel this practice must be stopped immediately. What do you think? What can be done? Let's hear from you.
American made
Came across a small chunk of Cashmere Bouquet soap I had placed in my dresser drawer a while back because i smelled so very nice. Imprinted on the bar is "Made in the USA." I'm going to plac it in a shadowbox on my wall; with a remembrance when captioned in red, white and ? blue. Enjoyed the Christmas parade very much. Wore two United States flag pins. Noticed white flecks all over my blue shirt, of paint. Checking the back of the pins lo and behold, "Made in China." Enough already.

Melissa and Molly had just graduated from Citrus High School and they were off spending gift money on clothes. They were silly, beautiful teenage girls.
And then they were gone.
Tim, who is disabled from a back injury and can no longer physically work, now has a new focus to his life. He firmly believes that we the adults
need to do a better job teaching young people about the dangers of driving. j
He's put together a group of concerned citizens and he wants to make Citrus County the model for a community that is willing to take a proactive role in making teenagers better drivers. Superintendent of Schools Sandra "Sam" Himmel is on board. So is Sheriff Jeff Dawsy. So is County Commissioner John
Thrumston. And so are dozens of other people j
There is no magic to forcing
teens to drive safely, but there are some obvious strategies. Sheriff Dawsy and Superintendent Himmel have put together a driving safety course that they want every high school student to go through.
Driving is the most dangerous thing that teenagers do, but even the old driver's education classes have been all but eliminated from our school system. Citrus County is now taking an aggressive step in making this more advanced training available.
Young people are going to be
taught how to avoid disaster during difficult driving conditions.
Tim and his group members believe that young drivers need more restrictions when they start out. It is statistically proven that by limiting the number of teenagers in a car being driven by a teen, the chances for an accident decrease. Many states have already limited the number of 16- and 17-year-olds who can travel together with a peer behind the wheel.
And banning the use of handheld cell phones makes sense
for teens and adults. Cell phone distractions make accidents much more likely.
But this Christmas season my thoughts are less public policy and more personal. Tim and Lori, his wife, are facing a holiday season without their daughter and there can be no greater personal tragedy than that.
Tim's strength is that he wants to turn his loss into something that might save the life of another teenager. If he saves just one young person, the legacy of his efforts will
always be with us.
He has the courage to face this tragedy every day anfl he works on this every daysb that he can help others.
Tim and Lori did just find out that they are going to be grandparents. Son Jared gqt married earlier this year and baby will be coming next year!
It will be a baby girl.

SHADES
Continued from Pap 1C
buy the Woodstock album and a Cream album. They had "mod" clothes and his dad had big, bushy sideburns.
I was a year younger than John and always thought that made him a pretty cool friend. He'd often push the limit, so to speak, and that kept things pretty exciting. Early on, it was mostly dumb kid stuff, like swimming out farther in the lake than we'd ever done before or jumping off cliffs of spying on people.
When we were 12 or 13, he and I had the opportunity to go into the big city of Rochester, where his mother let us walk alone to a movie theater to see "West Side Story," which had
just come out. Alone in the city, seeing a movie about gangs tell me that's not cool!
John wasn't as worried about getting in trouble as I was, and that often meant adventure for me. As early teens, we took his dad's station wagon out for a short drive down a rutted dirt road. It was so much fun, we did it again and faster the second time. We bottomed out the car and dropped the transmission ... the day before his father was trading it in on a new car.
I didn't stick around for his dad to get home.
We'd swipe cigarettes from our folks, hike back in the apple orchards and light them up. At that stage of the game, in all honesty, I did not inhale but, man, I felt cool. i
One time I was visiting his home for a couple days during
Christmas vacation. We were walking down Main Street in the snowy darkness and he pulled a mini bottle of Southern Comfort out of his jacket pocket We never drank it, but there was some childish thrill in knowing that, as minors, we had a bottle of booze. (For the record, I don't like cigarettes or Southern Comfort)
Before John was old enough to get his license, he bought a '57 Chevy. (I think his dad figured that was preferable to the alternative.) We spent a couple summers in the early 1970s working on that jalopy and driving up and down the aforementioned dirt road.
At about that same time in life, he got into some other activities that were pretty fun, too football, music and girls. I emphasize "he" because he was the athlete, he had the
social skills to date, and he had some natural musical abilities. I just had a cool friend.
One of the last times I saw John, in the mid-1970s, his band was among the opening acts for guitar great Dickey Betts at an outdoor show in Attica, N.Y.
Again, to me that was way cool!
The last time I saw John, I was home from college. He was with a girl whom he ended up marrying and he had a job in the agriculture industry not a job that seemed to offer a great future, but we were still young. Who knew what the future would hold?
ON THE INSIDE
John must have been age 5 or 6 when tragedy struck his family. His oldest brother dumped gasoline onto a fire in their
back yard. The gas exploded and a few torturous days later, his brother was dead.
In the years to follow, his mom became an alcoholic. Booze was a monster that ripped her apart.
John excelled at football, but never talked much about school. If I had to guess now, he was dyslexic. He never finished high school.
His older brother once became enraged when his dad tried to stop him from taking his motorcycle out for a ride and badly beat his father, who was no lightweight. John's little brother or sister found their father unconscious and were the ones to call for help.
The economy changed in the 1970s and his family's once-very-successful business fell apart.
His dad left his mom for a
much younger woman.
His mom spent the subsequent years in and out of detox.
In recent years, John went blind.
INSIDE AND OUTSIDE
Sometimes it's impossible tp tell when people's confidence is masking bad stuff deep within. John was confident, talented and, more than I knew, tormented.
There was a storm inside John that overtook him in thfe end. J
Even with the 30 years' time since I've seen my old friend, it'll be impossible not to miss him.

Parade going north
I'm calling to say thanks to the City of Crystal River and tjfie parade organizers for ruining yet another holiday tradition here in Citrus County. For over 40 years that I know of, that parade has gone south on ;(U.S.) 19 at nighttime. Last 'year, it went north because of Our new median construction. -Well, that construction's over, so why is the parade still going north? It should be going south. There's not enough parking or viewing areas when you go (north. And then the 'daytime hours are just plain wrong. You can't even see the lights 'that everyone works call so hard with. If people KfiQ want to see a parade tlUtJ" in the daytime, they can go to Inverness or Beverly Hills they have them in during the day. We should have a choice here in America. So please bring back our holiday -tradition next year.
Find middle ground
i ., Letters and Sound Offs seem | to be evenly divided between j calls for a moratorium on i: impact fees to employ our con-! struction workers, and the calls j to sock it to the builders by | keeping impact fees high. Isn't i there a middle ground? Everyone would prefer a Target : to a third Wal-Mart, and many I wish we could have a Red i Lobster in the county. Can't we i deal on an individual basis for i the businesses that the majori-i ty of the people want?
Portability
i I would like to have an article I in the paper with a lot more |.: detail about this property tax { reduction proposal, especially
the part about the portability. That part concerns me because I'm thinking about selling and moving to a smaller home. I want to know about the portability, how that tax implication works. If you guys could get more detail and put an article in the paper, I'd sure appreciate it.
Veterans' suicides
It was reported last night, Dec. 12, on NBC's
Brian Williams show, IJ that our vets are now JT* committing suicide at T the rate of 120 a J invested in. The VA needs the money to care for our boys and we need to take care of our own country's infrastructure.
Punishing parents
My son is a third-grader at Hernando Elementary. He was suspended off the bus today for one day. This is his third bus driver, her first week there, the kids don't know the rules, and they suspended him. They're not punishing the kids; they're punishing the parents. Now I have to take a day off from work because I have no way of getting him there or picking him up after school. He thinks it's the greatest thing in the world because now he's "parent pickup" or he gets to stay home from school. There's got to be an alternative.
Forgotten war
I have a bumper sticker on my car that says, "Korean War, the Forgotten War, 1950-1953:
54,246 men died, wounded was 103,248 and missing in action was 8,177." They don't even know what happened to more than 8,000 men. So, you know, the Vietnam War was much higher. But, you know, both wars were losers and we're into another one. So I just wish I had served in Iraq so when I came home, I'd be a hero. But nobody cares about the others anyway.
Holding control
I'm calling about all the people that call in and say the Bush administration does this, the Bush administration does that, the Bush administration does this. Did they all forget that the Democrats control the House and the Senate? So I would say it's the Democrats that do this, the Democrats are doing that, the Democrats are doing this, and take a closer look at who actually has control.
Needing smart pills
In regards to your Dec. 14 editorial about using common sense when doing backyard burning: Impact fees aside, I would like to see a common-sense store open in this county. There is a serious lack of it here and having had bad experiences with a neighbor's backyard bonfires, I will be the first in line to purchase a gift card for said neighbor.
Failure to amuse
Hi there, everyone. Just a simple question: Does anyone really read "Cathy" in the comics? I haven't read it in years and I keep going over the others and I think, why is it still in the paper? Oh, please, either take it out or hide it somewhere in the paper. It is unbelievably stupid and it's not humorous and it certainly has

I am a 60-year-old disabled Vietnam veteran living on a small income. I've been feeding myself by getting food out of the dumpsters. So I go behind the (grocery store) today, every day. They throw away perfectly good food. But today the store manager ran me off and told me I wasn't allowed to do that. I don't understand that.
Tests waste water
Since we have had a drought for several years and there is much concern about the lack of rain and water in general, I would like to express my concern about the water wasted in
testing fire hydrants. I have witnessed water (hundreds of gallons) gushing out of these fire hydrants for at least 30 minutes for each one, with not a person or truck in sight to oversee this operation. I cannot believe that a person can't test them in 5 minutes to see that the fire hydrants are working in case of a fire. This extreme lack of concern for wasting water and letting it run down the street, benefiting nobody, is worthy of- a change of policy in the county. As for the person/people who are suggesting that our wells are monitored for water usage, I welcome the monitoring because you will see that I am very careful of water I use, as I only have a 40-foot well and do not look forward to it going dry. A few suggestions for saving water is: Do dishes in a pan, and water trees and
shrubs with that water. I have a rain barrel (if we ever do get rain), and I'm down to about three showers a week (the rest of the time I wash in the sink). These are the top of the list. So, please do not waste water, as I will suffer along with the people who have not conserved.
No more police
I am a native of Crystal River like the sixth or seventh generation. I feel like one of our council members might have a conflict of interest, in that this member is also an employee of Swiftmud. I cannot believe that three people can change something like our police department that has been a part of our little city since time began. I'm wondering what next is in store for our beautiful little town.

Funeral home owner recertified
Charles E. Davis, CFSP, owner of the Chas. E. Davis Funeral Home & Crematory of Inverness, has recently qualified for recertification of the designation of Certified Funeral Service Practitioner (CFSP), by the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice.
A number of professions grant special recognition to members upon completion of specified academic and professional programs and "CFSP" is funeral service's national individual recognition.
The Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice, since its 1976 founding, has had as its goals: 1) to recognize those practitioners who have voluntarily entered into a program of personal and professional growth, 2) to raise and improve the standards of funeral
service and 3) to encourage practitioners to make continuing education a lifelong process in their own self-interest, the interest of the families they serve and the community in which they serve.
To initially receive this award, the practitioner must complete a 180-hour program of continuing education activities and events. In addition, the practitioner is required to accumulate 20 hours per year to recertify. Credits are awarded by the academy for work leading to personal and/or professional growth in four areas: academic activities; professional activities; career review (for retroac-
charles e. davis
five credit); and community and civic activities.
Certified Practitioners may use the CFSP designation with their names for business letterheads, professional cards and other appropriate uses. Certification is for individuals only and is not used to imply certification of a firm.
Information about Academy membership and certification may be obtained by contacting: KimberiyA. Gehlert, Executive Director, Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice, P.O. Box 2275, Westerville, OH 43086; (614) 899-6200; www.apfsp.com.
