The major event in the economic life of Citrus County in 2007 would have to be called the End of the Boom For Sure.
Reverberations of the double sonic boom that had slammed the county like sucker punches
with wildly escalating lot and residential real estate prices and frantic home building for about 2-1/2 years officially died away in 2007 as the plunging home-building market caught up with the sagging real estate market
The real estate market, which had been driven in great part during the boom by land sales,
dropped 20 percent in total brokered sales for 2007 over 2006. That came after sales had plummeted 81 percent in total brokered sales from the previous year, 2005.
As those industries and all the related businesses in the local economy struggled to hang on in the economic slowdown that characterized 2007, the generally accepted prognosis that evolved by the end of the year was a slow return toward normal, possibly beginning in the third quarter of 2008, or at least by 2009.
Still, for the grim year that it
was in the residential real estate and home-building market, the year 2007 had a fair amount of commercial economic developments readying or going into construction that, when seen in the context of the whole county, smooth out at least some of the dismal picture and may, some observers feel, foreshadow better times by the next year or two.
As local businesses tightened their belts and tried to focus on the light at the end of the tunnel, commercial development kept a

Brown Dumas about his long career
Local banking figure retires
MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle
Longtime banker Brown Dumas, center, introduces his brother Ron Dumas, right, to Dixie Hollins dressed as Santa on Christmas Eve at the Crystal River Bank. Dumas has worked at the bank 54 years and is retiring this week.
Brown Dumas' impact as banker, fireman has spanned generations
Jim Hunter jhunter@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
If you tried to count how many people's lives Brown Dumas Jr. has touched over the years, you'd eventually have to give it up.
Communities normally honor and celebrate those who labor faithfully and retire after 35 years on the job. A 40-plus year career with a company or agency is usually considered remarkable.
Few can top Dumas, however. The retiring president of Crystal River Bank has not only worked at the bank for 54 years, he has served even longer with the Crystal River Volunteer Fire Department
Dumas said his father, who was also a member of the department, got him to be a firefighter as a young man. Now Dumas has been the fire chief of the department for about a quarter centu-
ry, and in the family tradition, his own son Jack, also a bank president, is the assistant chief.
While he may be retiring from the bank, Dumas said he doesn't plan on retiring from the fire department any time soon.
In fact, because of Dumas' well-known dedication to the fire department, his son Jack chuckled and said about his father's retirement from the bank: "I figured he would become a full-time firefighter."
As to how many lives Dumas has touched over the years in his capacities as community banker and as a firefighter, son Jack wouldn't even try to guess. He could only say, "It spans generations."
Dumas, 72, is a friendly, unassuming man with an easy smile. He's not particularly comfortable in the limelight and would quickly give others credit before putting himself forward.
He is always accessible. His office is
a cubicle next to the other bank officers, not some fancy big room that has "President" emblazoned in gold over a big oak door.
He never lost the easy-going, smalltown personality he is known for that he developed growing up on his father's dairy in Crystal River. His father, who he noted dabbled in local politics, sold the dairy when Dumas was in high school and bought a gas station. As in the dairy, Dumas worked in the gas station.
"Work never hurt me," Dumas said, though chuckling as he comments he allows that "Changing tires was a dirty business."
He also had a newspaper route, which he said was a natural compliment to the dairy's milk delivery routes.
Dumas said his father was strict. He had the "old values," Dumas said, and

moderate pace around the county. Some housing construction is anticipated in
Inverness and Crystal River on projects that involve apartments.
For 2007, however, residential construction took a nosedive and some big projects on the books are holding. Single-family permit applications had dropped to 35 in November 2007. In November 2006, there were 82 and in November 2005 there were 222.

More development coming to Citrus in 2008
County to see more shopping dining options soon
Jim Hunter

Chronicle
" Given the disastrous home building market and the molasses-speed of real estate sales in 2007, commercial development may have been the high point of the 2007 economy in Citrus County. And with many projects readying in 2007 for launch in 2008, the New Year may be a similar one, at least in the first few quarters
Consider, for instance: a new Holiday Inn Express was built near Inverness and another is
about to break ground in Crystal River, next to a new bank branch near completion, which is near to where a new Dunkin' Donuts will soon break ground.
Crosland, a North Carolina developer, came forward with its site plan for a Super Wal-Mart-anchored regional shopping center named Shoppes at Black Diamond on the southwest corner of County Road 486 and Coounty Road 491. The project is expected to get off the ground in 2008.
Just across C.R. 491, Gulf to Lakes is expected to begin the
permit process for a commercial center, and Circle K has demolished its store on the northeast corner of the intersection and is rebuilding a larger store.
Target/originally the big box store sought for the Crosland center, said it is still looking for a site in the county. There are possible sites in various locations around the county.
Construction on a Publix-anchored shopping center, The Shoppes of Sugarmill Woods, went into full swing, with the Publix slated to open in 2008.
The RealtiCorp property across from Home Depot near Crystal River was redesigned by Primerica and may finally settle on a multi-use plan including big box, retail/office and residential that the
county can live with in 2008.
Some interest was expressed late in the year to the county for a shopping center with an anchor store for the corner of C.R. 491 and Forest Ridge Boulevard, though such a project is still only tentative. Heritage Oaks shopping center opened on County Road 486 just east of the other end of Forest Ridge Boulevard.
Eight new community branch banks from Orange Bank, Center State Bank and Superior Bank either opened in 2007 or were slated to open in various parts of the county, including one in Dunnellon.
A 99,000-square-foot shopping center was proposed for the northeast corner of the intersection of Croft Road and C.R. 486.
Inverness area
These are just some of the commercial projects in 2007 or planned for 2008. Others include new commercial developments in the Inverness area like the new professional offices behind Outback Steakhouse and a new Walgreens drug store just west on State Road 44 near Independence Boulevard. TJ Maxx and Office Max located in the Citrus Center shopping center in 2007.
The former Cox Lumber building and property in Inverness is up for sale and under contract and will likely be torn down and become a shopping center, possibly getting off the ground in the coming year, according to Ken
Koch, the Inverness community development director.
Among some small medical and office spaces that came or are planned for the Inverness area, the Prieto Retail and Medical Center went in on U.S. 41 south of Inverness. Also, negotiations are under way for a shopping center at the corner of U.S. 41 and Eden Drive. It could have a CVS drug store, a Hess station and possibly a Dunkin' Donuts, Koch said, depending on negotiations.
He said the Cinnamon Sticks restaurant is up for sale and redevelopment, and the Cornerstone Baptist Church is expected to break ground on its 20 acres at Highland Boulevard and Montgomery

'There were 987 permit applications for 2007 through November, and the December total was expected to be very small, especially since the county commission set a hearing on rolling back impact fees in late January The 2007 figures included sales that actually had been made in 2006. When that lag is figured in, it shows an even worse market picture.
To get a perspective on the plummeting market, in 2006 there were 1,625 single-family home permit applications; in 2005 there were 3,309; and in 2004 there were 2,457. 'Mike Moberley, president of the Citrus County Builders Association, said apart from the obvious precipitous drop in sales, the low point of2007 really had to be local building-related businesses having to lay off so many people.
On the other hand, he said, there was at least a bright spot at the end of the year in how people still came together through the building industry in efforts such as Toys for Tots to help out so many who wouldn't have had a Christmas otherwise.
Moberley said he didn't have figures for how many people in construction or building-related businesses lost their jobs in 2007, but he said starkly, "It's a lot"
He said he couldn't speak for others, but, for example, in his own window business, a big part of which subcontracts windows for construction, he went from 52 employees to 14.
He said that the hope in the building industry is that conditions had reached their bottom at the end of the year and were leveling out Industry predictions are that it will level sometime in 2008, with recovery by 2009.
Moberley said he figures the 2008 home permit totals might be about half the 2007 number, but he noted that it has to be remembered that a number of the 2007 permits early in the year were actually carry-over from 2006
sales.
"We're not going to be the same," he said of the future home market in relation to the boom time, but added, "but we are going to be smarter because of it"
He thinks voters will approve the tax relief amendment on the ballot in January not because it's the best remedy to escalated taxes, but because it's the only thing on the table for taxpayers who have been paying an increasing share as government has spent more and more money
Real Estate
Barry Cook, the outgoing president of the Realtors Association of Citrus County, said 2007 was obviously not a great year for real estate sales, but knowing that all real estate is local, he said, Citrus didn't really reflect some of the economic horror stories from the national news. Though total brokered sales went from 10,403 in 2005 to 1,982 in 2006, they slipped only to 1,579 in 2007.
Echoing many in the industry, he said that 2007 was a year of correction "It was too hot and it has to cool down," he said of the boom market There were 2,824 homes on the multiple listings on Friday and 4,077 lots.
Following the national industry trend for predictions, Cook said, he thinks Citrus in 2008 will begin to enter another phase of the correction cycle that it's been going through and will begin to see a recovery in sales as the record inventory of homes begins to get whittled down
In fact, he said, though he had not yet done a market study on December, the month's activity was mildly surprising "We're seeing some local improvement here already"
Of the three big influences on buyers prices, taxes and insurance he said, there was a little room for optimism. As prices are adjusting even now, he said, the insurance is beginning to loosen a bit and the voters will have a choice at the end of January on improving the tax situation on homesteaded homes.
In short, he said of2008: "We're all pretty optimistic. We know it's

going to get better" He said it's just a matter of not knowing exactly how much and how soon.
Chamber of Commerce
"Overall, 2007 has seen a trimming of budgets in small businesses in Citrus County," said Citrus County Chamber of Commerce President Carl Flanagan He felt the depressed conditions in the home building and real estate markets and resultant spin-off effects on so many other businesses has become evident to local elected officials and will have some effect on their view of impact fees, which threaten small business.
The realization that the revenue stream that can be lost when small business isn't there is becoming apparent to them, he thinks, and hopes it will spur them to encourage small business rather than suppress it with withering impact fees.
"The mom-and-pop businesses are the life's blood of not only Citrus County economy, but the whole nation," he said.
Another effect he sees in current conditions is that they stimulated a better understanding of the importance of the shop locally mentality
Flanagan said there are peaks and valleys in the economic cycle, and the valley won't last forever Even though it's a time for tight budgets, he said, it also is a good time to plan and position for when the economy improves.
Short term it's a pinch, but longer term, he said, "I think there are some good things to come." Flanagan said he goes along with the view that the third and fourth quarter of2008 will be when signs of the recovery will begin to be evident
He said that there are two upcoming events early in 2008 that showcase the county and can help set the stage for recovery The chamber expects to see record crowds at the Manatee Festival in January and the Strawberry Festival in March.
At the Manatee Festival a consultant for The Crystal River Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) will be doing a survey of residents and businesses for

priorities to incorporate in a vision project that will be held early in 2008. With the first seven phases of the CRA goals completed, it wants to create a development vision for the next 5 to 10 years.
Economic Development
Randy Welker, executive director of the Citrus County Economic Development Council (EDQ said that economically the county obviously didn't have the best of years in 2007, but still he felt there were some good signs emerging for the county, and he and others were beginning to see good possibilities for fulfilling some long-held expectations.
He noted the high tech Mobiform company and the alligator tannery/manufacturing facility that located in the county in 2007. Those were the kind of projects the council will try to bring more of in the new year, and he said he was optimistic that with continued marketing and partnerships and interaction with groups like Enterprise Florida, it would happen "We are going after everything coming out," he said of the council's recruiting for businesses.
"I'm encouraged," he said, adding that the not-too-distant future signs are good for the county: The economy is forecast to come back next year and Progress Energy new nuclear plant start-up effects will soon start to be seen. And as the Suncoast Parkway extension comes closer to becoming a reality, he said, that also will begin to change the atmosphere.
The present challenge, he said, is to get through the current conditions. How the county responds, whether it takes a positive approach to be ready as the stage is set, and how it leverages its assets now, he said, will be very important to the success of the recovery
Early in the new year, the EDC will begin looking at developing a strategic plan for a business park and airport at Inverness to present the county commission, as well as a business incubator plan for Central Florida Community College at the Lecanto campus.

Domestic battery arrests
Joseph M. Scull, 25,4 N. Davis St., Beverly Hills, at 12:11 a.m., 1:13 a.m. and 2:11 a.m. Wednesday on misdemeanor charges of domestic battery, criminal mischief and on an active Citrus County warrant for felony violation of probation for failure to appear on original charges of grand theft and driving while license is suspended or revoked, third or subsequent offense.

The Wild Palms project will continue and Parsley Lake Village, with 93 single-family homes and 150 condos will break ground in 2008. Hidden Village, with 54 units, near Windermere, is also slated to begin construction.
Winn-Dixie will be doing a $1 million renovation of its Highlands Boulevard store, and Hooper Funeral Home on Main Street in Inverness also is undergoing a major remodeling project.
Among other office spaces and new businesses coming in 2008 is the Martini Bar, a lounge and nightclub located in the shopping strip adjacent the Inverness city hall parking lot. It's is expected to open early in 2008.
A Dunkin' Donuts store was built in Inverness on west S.R. 44, and one was installed the new Mobile gas station/convenience store at S.R. 44 and C.R. 491.
Gulf Region
On the other side of the county, The Plantation Inn carried out a significant expansion project at the south end of Crystal River in 2007, adding a wing with 58 new rooms as well as meeting rooms and a spa. The first phase of annexation to the city is expected in 2008.
The first buildings in the Summerhill at Meadowcrest villas project came out of the ground and initial work is anticipated on the Hidden Lakes Preserve near the Crystal River Mall. The project is expected to begin with the 150-unit apartment complex. Later phases will include 549 residential units.
There is a new small retail center, the Southern Heritage building, on Citrus Avenue on the north side of Heritage Village and a Sonic Drive-in is nearing completion on U.S. 19. The former Cypress Room restaurant has been taken over by Rodney Carr, owner of the Wine and Cheese Company, and will open early in 2008 as Vintage on Fifth. The former Prime Minister restaurant on S.R. 44 is reopening as The Supper Club. The Shoppes of Crystal River also opened on S.R. 44.
The Seven Rivers Professional Center, 51,000 square feet of medical office space, went in adjacent to Seven River Rivers Regional Medical Center, and in that same region work on the U.S. 19 Bridge at the canal is expected to begin in 2008.
At Progress Energy's complex, initial work will begin upgrading its nuclear unit and installing new pollution devices in a three to five year, $1 billion project.
To the south in the Gulf Region, Homosassa Riverside Resort will be doing some major remodeling and construction, and a new RV park to be called Chassahowitzka Oaks and similar to the one on U.S. 19 at the Cross Florida Greenway canal, is planned for Chassahowitzka.
These projects represent some of the commercial developments that came to the county in 2007 or are expected to open or get started in 2008.
As an infrastructure footnote to development in the county, it may be significant to note that the Crystal River, Inverness and county Meadowcrest wastewater plants are all undergoing, or will undergo in 2008, expansion projects.

he expected his children to attend to plenty of chores. "I didn't have time to get into trouble," Dumas said.
In fact, he said chuckling again "I didn't have a regular drink until I was 26," but then he added seriously that alcohol and drugs weren't as prevalent or available to teens as they are today.
He had enrolled in Tampa Business College but one day in late 1953 a man showed up and asked him if he was interested in working at a bank It seemed then Crystal River High School Principal Doc Hudson, who had also been Dumas' basketball coach, had recommended him to the man.
It was to be a new bank, the first in Crystal River since the Crash of 1929. It was located where that bank had been, at the corner of U.S. 19 and Citrus Avenue, in the building that now houses Curves.
Dumas said yes. They sent him up to Dunnellon to learn about banking. He started at the new Crystal River Bank on opening day, Jan. 15, 1954, as a teller and bookkeeper earning $150 a month, though he kept his paper route for another two years.
There was only one other employee, and they did everything from ledger sheets to loans. Everything was done by hand in the beginning, which he said gave him an invaluable understanding of the details of how a bank works.
Over the years, Dumas worked his way up through the bank's positions until he was named president in 1971, just before when the bank moved to its present location half a block down U.S. 19. He will have served in that capacity until Dec. 31, the official date of his retirement
In his typical self-effacing style, Dumas eschewed a formal retirement dinner in his honor. He opted for a open house on Christmas Eve until the bank

closed that afternoon.
Dumas married his wife Roger Carol 51 years ago. He was a teller/assistant accountant and she was a school secretary. After raising three children, she began a career with the Citrus County Health Department, from which she eventually retired.
Dumas gives his wife a lot of credit for his success, noting that he was sort of the black sheep in the family, being the only one of his siblings who didn't graduate with honors as in Valedictorian.
"She's been a good influence on me," he said and with a twinkle in his eye added, "She's kept me out of politics." And given the nature of what small town/small county politics can be sometimes, he will admit, when looking back, that he's glad he never followed in his father's footsteps in that way. ~
Dumas' son Jack said he has
had the privilege of not only growing up under his father's guidance, but the good fortune of working for him and then later alongside him as the president of another of the Brannen family of banks Homosassa Springs Bank.
He said there are countless stories about how his father helped people in his role as banker and, he has always enjoyed hearing from so many people over the years how his father helped them save their home or get their first car.
The younger Dumas is sort of in awe at his father. "He's like the Energizer Bunny; he just keeps going and going and going." He said because his

father had learned how to do every banking operation by hand, it gave him a unique understanding that computer -age bankers don't have. "He's one of the finest bankers I've ever met He has an innate ability to understand the inner workings of a bank."
He also credits his father with taking the volunteer fire department from a small, backwoods company to a well-trained and equipped group of professionally minded firefighters of which the city could be proud.
The elder Dumas says he's not sure what he will do in retirement, but he plans to do some traveling, reading and some fishing and hunting. As for

the hunting, he said, the truth is that he just enjoys being in the woods and it really doesn't matter it he gets anything.
He is a person who understand simple pleasures. Bank vice-president and Assistant Cashier Sandra Owens, who has worked with Dumas for 26 years, said he is one of those people who you'd meet and not realize he was a bank president because he is so friendly, patient and down-to-earth.
"He would do anything for anyone," she said, adding that the only word to describe her boss as a person, a banker, a firefighter and just a community-minded citizen is simply, "outstanding." "I am going to miss him," she said.
As for the retrospective on his career, Dumas said, "I have seen bunch of changes in the county." Just the population explosion in the county in the last half century has been amazing to him when compared to the time when he knew all his customers person-

ally, not to mention everyone in town. Striving to keep that personal approach to banking is what makes a community bank successful and what he's tried to preserve at his bank.
He doesn't mourn the changes to the county, however, and says: "I think growth is good and important, but it has to be controlled and thought out. You need the infrastructure in place."
In spite of the enormous changes, Dumas has never fallen out of love with his hometown and figures to eventually end his days in the place he most loves. "The county has been good to me," he says.
"I have always liked the town, the county, the area. It's home."

CHICAGO Edward Brennan, who started as a sales associate at a Sears store in Wisconsin and rose to become chairman and CEO of Sears, Roebuck and Co. in the mid-1980s, has died at age 73.
Brennan, who later took over as board chairman at American Airlines parent AMR Corp. when previous chairman Donald Carty was forced out amid financial and labor tumult, died Thursday night at his home in suburban Burr Ridge after a brief illness, the Chicago Tribune reported on its Web site.
The Chicago native served on a variety of boards, including McDonald's Corp., 3M Corp. and Exelon Corp. He also previously served as chairman of the board of trustees at DePaul University and Marquette University, his alma mater.
In 1986 he became chairman of the board and chief executive officer. The company that year launched its Discover Card, claiming 12 million holders by year's end.
Brennan retired from Sears and its board of directors on Aug. 9,1995.

Arrival at the volcano rim before sunup was our plan. Shivering in the dark with only an occasional ray from someone's flashlight, we had fun watching our breath in the near-freezing temperature and staring into the star-filled blackness above. Climactic shock was endured by all considering that we had never seen this element the temperature as low as 30 degrees portrayed in Hawaiian travel brochures.
We were spellbound as we watched a crimson glow grow brighter and brighter as the

sun began its rise over the awesome crater of Haleakala. At 10,023 feet in elevation, the summit is also one of the world's top sites for viewing the night sky.
Mount your bicycles! We began our 38-mile descent above a sea of clouds to wind our way downhill, including a dizzying array of 29 hairpin 180-degree turns. I found myself never pushing a pedal, but
often applying the -
brakes, as the gradient is consistently steep.
And so we went, mile after mile, through bands of clouds and an occasional sprinkling rain. The Pukalani Country Club at mile-marker 28 was a welcome sight, where

Having experienced the major attraction of East Maui, our West Maui adventure began on a windy point of land on the rugged and scenic northern shore of Kapalua. We boarded a helicopter for a thrilling view of mountains, waterfalls, and whale watching.

Flying into the spray of a waterfall presented a different kind of excitementor, rather, fear! A spout of water overhead and a boiling pool below offered a special perspective, unlike any other, of a waterfall.
Then offshore hovering above gentle giants of the sea, humpback whales, was a special treat. Humpbacks generally surface every 10 to 15 minutes, offering ample opportunity to follow and observe them either surfacing or breaching.

Family, community welcome home Army corporal
Special to the Chronicle
On Dec. 23, a special heroes welcome was observed at Chili's Restaurant in Crystal River. A well-deserved heroes welcome was given to Cpl. Phillip Peters, who returned home from his recent tour of duty in the Iraqi theater of operations. More than 20 members of his family, friends and three members from American Legion Post 155 gathered in his honor just six days after his birthday.
Peters is a lifelong Florida resident and graduate of Crystal River High School, class of 2001. He joined the U.S. Army in September 2004. In just three-plus years of great service to his country, Peters is well on his way to being the model soldier the Army has to offer by exceeding not only his personal goals, but also the
ygoals set out by the Army in advancement and awards.
. During Peters' tour of duty, which lasted 16 1/2 months in Iraq, as an infantryman, he was assigned team leader. He led a
"team of four soldiers on the ground in numerous combat batrols (Humvee/tanks) and
""dismounted patrols (on foot). Peters was also directly responsible for the training of the Iraqi army and Iraqi police
oforce and helping set up check points in parts of the country. He instructed them in what to
; look for in oncoming vehicles, people and how to defend their
-ground. He also ran coordinated
,.4ay and night
"patrols with the Iraqi army.
jst. Peters was one
' of the few soldiers trained to operate and maintain the liaven RQ-11 Unmanned Aerial
' Vehicle. He got plenty of experience with the UAV as he was directly responsible for more than 55 air assaults. The
^:Raven, a 4 1/2-pound UAV with a 5-foot wingspan
"rend a mere 38 inches in length, is one of the smallest vehicles in the Army, but its aerial reconnaissance value has quickly earned the respect of battalion commanders in Iraq and has filled a niche at the battalion level when larger UAVs are unavailable. Though not as large or as capable as some tactical UAVs, the Raven provides units with a tremendous real-time data
special to the chronicle
Cpl. Phillip Peters was welcomed home from a 16 1/2-month tour in Iraq at Chili's Restaurant in Crystal River. From left are: Curtis Peters, father; Brice Peters, brother; Dawn Peter, mother; and Phillip.
Peters was also one of the few soldiers trained to operate and maintain the Raven RQ-11 Unmanned Aerial Vehicle.
link capability previously available only at higher levels of command.
The Raven has three different cameras that attach to the nose of the plane, an electrical optical camera that sends data either through a nose camera or a side camera, an infrared (thermal) camera in the nose and a side-mounted infrared camera. The IR technology is still too big to fit into the nose section of the plane. The camera does not have a zoom and is unable to lock on a target but provides enough resolution to show someone carrying a weapon. The Raven has about 45 to 60 minutes of flight time on a battery. The kit comes with spare batteries and a charger that plugs into a Humvee so they can land it, pop in a spare battery and get it back in the air.
Besides being one of the main instructors for the Iraqi army and Iraqi police force, he is a team leader for his 3rd Brigade, 8th Calvary of the 1st
Cavalry Division as an infantryman in direct support of the global war on terrorism.
Peters is a highly decorated soldier, having earned the Army Commendation medal (four awards), Army Achievement medal (two awards), Combat Infantry, Iraqi Campaign Service medal, Global War on Terrorism Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary medal, National Defense Service medal, Army Good Conduct medal, Army Overseas ribbon and numerous certificates of commendations from lieutenant colonels and generals and other personal medals and ribbons.
In addition to Peters' prestigious awards, while he was at advanced training at the Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, he received the Hero of the Battle award during weeklong war training when he actually saved the life of his commander. Peters is a true Citrus County hero.
The welcome home a hero project is funded by donations from Citrus County merchants, American Legion, VFW and other veteran organizations. To donate to the Citrus County Heroes Welcome Home Baskets program for local veterans, call Barbara Mills at 422-6236 or visit the Web site www.CitrusCountyHeroes.org.

Grants available for disabled veterans
Special to the Chronicle
The Coalition to Salute America's Heroes, in conjunction with the American Legion, is giving gifts of $500 each to 1,000 disabled veterans who served in the Iraq or Afghanistan wars. The Coalition presented a check for $500,000 to the American Legion, and the entire amount will be awarded to veterans, officials said. The Legion will assume all administrative costs.
There are no strings attached, and the money does not have to be used for any specific purpose, according to American Legion spokeswoman Ramona Joyce. There is no "financial need" requirement the only requirements are that the veterans served in the Iraq or Afghanistan wars and have a disability rated at 30 percent or more.
The money will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. Grants will be available through May, or until the money runs out. "We'd love to go through it before the holidays so they can have extra spending money for presents or maybe for a plane ticket home," Joyce said.
"These grants are just a small token of appreciation for the sacrifices made by so many of America's men and women in uniform," said Thomas Palma, general manager of the Coalition, in an announcement about the gifts. "Our Coalition was able to raise a lot of money from caring people but we do not have the distribution network of the American Legion. The Legion is a well-respected organization with a presence in communities across America."
The Legion also distributed
checks for the Coalition in 2005. To apply for a grant, veterans should contact their state's American Legion Headquarters office. Contact information can be found at the American Legion's state headquarters directory on www.legion.org.
If further assistance is needed, contact your local American Legion post. Veterans can also call National American Legion spokeswoman Ramona Joyce at (202) 263-2982 or John Raughter at (317) 630-1253.
American Legion Post 155 has provided this information for Citrus County Veterans with the cooperation with Citrus County Heroes Program www.Citrus CountyHeroes.org; you can also contact the Post Commander Jim Woodman at 795-6526 or see our Web site at www.Postl55.org.

Fred Haynes, president of the Combat Veterans of Iwo Jima, "the reunion will not only shed new light on a notably historic event. It will also ensure a broader understanding of this epic battle."
Haynes, author of the soon-to-be-released book "We Walk by Faith," and one of the planners in the 28th Marine Regiment, will serve on an afternoon panel along with Larry Smith, former editor of Parade Magazine.
Smith will soon release his new book "Iwo Jima WWII Veterans remember the Greatest Battle in the Pacific."

Lahaina and the nearby boat basin filled with exotic boats. Perhaps you'll want to stretch that tour around the island to two days.
But before you complete the circumvention of the island you may wish to drive the Haleakala Volcano highway to relive your bicycle descent or kick yourself for not having
done that yet!

Card mania: Dubious personal touch
I- put the Christmas card from my bank ^on the mantle with all the other ^Christmas cards we've received. The ones from my credit card companies, the oiflfrom my auto manufacturer, the one from my mortgage company, the ones from the charities I stopped donating to 15 years ago, the one from my senator (who's been working so hard for me the last year and a half running for president), the one from my congressman, the one from a hotel chain we stayed at once, one from the White House, (not that White House, the one that's a local gift shop in town), one from a place that just sells recliners and one from my cell-phone provider. And just when I was thinking none of them cared.
3ust when I was thinking my mortgage company could care less whether I was dead or alive comes this bright red-and-gold Christmas card that says "From your friends at First Financial." I have so many dear, close friends there. Why, there's what's-her-face and what's-his-name that guy with the toupee Bob or Charlie or Pete or something. I don't know why we've never had them over for dinner. Maybe because we haven't had any contact
with them since the closing six years ago? I noticed they put a personalized seasonal message on the bulk-rate meter. "Can You Save Money by Refinancing this Season?"
That's so sweet. And a partridge in a pear tree to you, too.
The auto dealer's card had a picture of all their salesmen wearing Santa hats gathered around a shiny, fire-engine red 2008 model sports car "Tis the Season to drop in and test drive the brand new Mid-Life Crisis. The A-Team at New and Used Auto Warehouse!" It was addressed to "Resident." It just made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to know they're full of the Christmas spirit. I guess we have to send them a card, now. We got one from the Tire Barn, too. Better add them to the list.
Our stockbroker sent us two cards, one for my 401(k) and one for my regular account. That's so thoughtful. How does he remember? He must have a brain like a computer. And they're very expensive-looking cards. Five dollars apiece I would think. I wonder where he gets all the money? His card covers all bases. It says "Happy Holidays," "Merry Christmas," "Happy Hanukkah," "Feliz Navidad,"
"Joyeux Noel," "Kwanzaa Yenu Iwe Na Heri" and "Gajan Kristnaskon." His pagan customers are sure to be miffed that there's no "Festive Saturnalia" anywhere.
I do a lot of business online, so I get a lot of online Christmas cards from people who have my credit card number and my e-mail address. It's starting to be a long list. Should I print out their cards or just leave them on the computer? Some of them sing and dance. Don't you love that when you're supposed to be hard at work and you open an e-mail and at double the volume of anything else going on in the office a bunch of barking dogs sing 'Jingle Bells"? My boss had the bonus envelopes in his hand when that happened. Now, I'll never know what mine would have been.
I do get a lot of cards from old friends and far-flung family members, but they rarely contain coupons or an offer for a free three-day visit to a time-share like my corporate friends. I would call them and say, "Hey, what's up with the cheap card?" but then I calm down and say to myself, "But what would my banker do?" After all, it's Christmas.

Today is Sunday, Dec. 30, the 364th day of 2007. There is one day left in the year.
Today's Highlight in History:
On Dec. 30,1907, the Mills Commission issued its final report which concluded that Abner Doubleday was the inventor of the sport of baseball a claim which Doubleday himself had never made. (Few, if any, sports historians take this finding seriously.)
On this date:
In 1813, the British burned Buffalo, N.Y., during the War of 1812.
In 1853, the United States bought some 45,000 square miles of land from Mexico in a deal known as the Gadsden Purchase.
In 1922, Vladimir I. Lenin proclaimed the establishment of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
In 1936, the United Auto Workers union staged its first "sit-down" strike, at the Fisher Body Plant No. 1 in Flint, Mich.
In 1948, the Cole Porter musical "Kiss Me, Kate" opened on Broadway.
Ten years ago: A deadly massacre in Algeria's insurgency began in four mountain villages as armed men killed 412 men, women and children in an attack that lasted from dusk until dawn the following morning.
Five years ago: China catapulted a fourth unmanned craft into orbit.
One year ago: Iraqis awoke to news that Saddam Hussein had been hanged; victims of his three decades of autocratic rule took to the streets to celebrate.

Nathan Collins and Summer and Patricia Gatlin inquire about library services Thursday during a trip to the Central Ridge Library. With the legislature looking at budget cuts, the library could be one of the public services affected.
Libraries need support of community to continue to provide wide range of services
Lynne Boele Special to the Chronicle
Friends love their libraries. Pretty much everyone loves the library that provides and enriches learning for everyone and remains the one constant source for literacy throughout life.
Prospective residents of the community ask about schools, employment opportunities and libraries. In addition to initiatives that encourage children to become lifelong readers, libraries provide services to promote adult literacy, and public libraries support local economies through job creations, construction and economic development.
Libraries also provide online access to the public, including extensive databases for research. Each year, Florida libraries host more than 72 million visitors who check out 100 million books. More than 25 million of those in-person visits are from Florida's children, grades K-12 (Florida Library Association, www.flalib.org).
All these services are provided for an average of $26.53 per person per year. A study sponsored by the Florida Department of State in 2004 determined that Florida public libraries return $6.54 for every $1 invested (FLA), a great bargain for your tax dollar. These returns benefit individuals and community organizations by providing information, resources and meeting
The Citrus County Library system provides many programs for children. One of the activities at Central Ridge allows children to practice their reading skill by reading to a dog. Here Clair and Jenny Wampler from Noah's Christian Academy take the opportunity to get to know this French bulldog named Rudy, owned by Charlene Kaye.
spaces for programs that enhance lifelong learning.
The libraries that serve so many of us so well now face a crisis. In response to legislative action, statewide funding for public libraries in fiscal year 2007-08 has been cut by about 10 percent. Library staffing also has been reduced by 10 percent. Funding for Florida libraries comes from three sources: local tax revenues (90 percent), state (6 percent), and other sources including Friends and pri-
vate fundraising (4 percent). Since libraries are not mandated in the state of Florida, when local government revenues are reduced, library funding is among the first to be cut Funding will be slashed even further if the proposed constitutional amendment on property taxes is passed in the Jan. 29 election. We all agree that Florida's property tax structure contains inequities. This amendment, however, creates a super homestead exemption system (doubling the exemption to
$50,000) and a mandatory tax cut and cap. The proposal would eliminate more than $600 million from county budgets statewide, leading to a reduction in essential services to citizens (Florida Association of Counties, FAC, Web site: www. fl-counties.com).
Florida's continued growth in population requires a growth in resources. The cuts and cap proposed will impact real services including safety, social services, schools and libraries. Reasonable limits on property tax assessment should be enacted locally. A state-mandated constitutional amendment, however, seizes local control and decision-making from communities.
The Tax and Budget Commission, approved by Florida voters and embedded in the state constitution, was created to review the state's tax and budget policies. Any major changes to the property tax system should be considered by this commission, which this proposed amendment would pre-empt
What can you do? Talk to your community and state representatives. Tell them you support our libraries. Tell them you support basic services currently provided. Go to the polls on Jan. 29 and use your electoral voice.
Lynne Boele is president of the nonprofit Friends of the Citrus County Library System.

OUT THE WINDOW
Some grades on 2007
It's been a tradition at the Chronicle for many years to create a list of 10 community goals for Citrus County. And it has been one of my traditions to spend a few minutes at the end of the year to talk about how we did during the past 12 months on the goals established on the first day of 2007. Here's the list: Water-Quality Initiatives
Grade: C A few positive steps have been taken to improve the water quality in Citrus County, but they are only minor steps. The sewer project in Homosassa is now nearing completion and the old septic tanks will be removed from this environmentally sensitive area. The city of Inverness got a $10 million grant to build a new sewer plant, and a water reuse system will be developed (via a SWFWMD grant) to serve the Inverness Golf and Country Club area. The city of Crystal River is close to an agreement with the county to create a sewer assessment district on County Road 44 West to provide service to those areas.
But little else has been done, and there is much needed. The

Ups, downs, Dilbert moments
There's something about looking back at the past year that's intriguing. It's uncanny to realize all that happens in a matter of 365 days. There's lots of great stuff, some sad things and a whole lot of everyday happenings that may not seem too consequential at the time, but when viewed from the perspective of hindsight, they hold some significance.
A gander at the pages from my 2007 calendar reflects the mix of highs, lows, exciting, mundane, farewells and welcomes.

In early January, we intensified our search for temporary accommodations in Miami so our reporters and photographers could live in relative safety while covering the trial of murderer and all-around dirt bag John Couey.
When reporters we sent down to find a place returned with an estimate of $6,000 a month, our mild-mannered publisher delicately related that a bit more searching might be in order. Technically,

WHAT
Local pharmacy initiative moves closer to reality
News of $146,000 in federal aid coming to Citrus County to help establish a community pharmacy is welcome because it means progress progress toward the $300,000 needed to establish the pharmacy; and progress in the revamped direction United Way is heading.
The focus of the community pharmacy is to provide those residents of Citrus County without insurance or adequate health coverage to get necessary prescriptions filled at a lower price. According to John Marmish, executive director of the United Way of Citrus County, people would be able to buy prescriptions at wholesale prices, plus an additional $4. The community pharmacy will accept Medicaid, but not Medicare. Also, other insurance plans will not be accepted.
U.S. Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite, R-Brooksville, Citrus County Commission Chairwoman Joyce Valentino, Citrus County United Way Board of Directors President Don Taylor, Citrus County Support Services, the Citrus County Health Department and Marmish deserve praise for their leadership in bringing this money here.
Marmish said a few obstacles exist, but once those are cleared the pharmacy will become a reality.
The community pharmacy is also evidence of the progress the United Way has made locally since re-establishing itself as an organization that not only raises funds, but as one that mobilizes community efforts to improve people's lives. Although the United Way still supports 21 local

organizations through its fundrais-ing, the community initiatives the organization has developed will have lasting impact on Citrus County for generations to come. Those initiatives include:
Citrus County Food Bank: A 5,000-square-foot facility where food
can be collected, stored and distributed to the estimated 16,000 Citrus County residents who face poverty and hunger. This project is in its planning stages.
Cars That Care: Through this program, a repaired vehicle is given to a deserving person in order to gain, retain or improve employment or deal with everyday challenges.
Affordable Housing: An ongoing complex process to obtain land and state aid in order to provide low-income housing.
Born Learning: A public awareness campaign to help caretakers realize simple, everyday moments are learning opportunities for infants and toddlers.
2-1-1 Services: A free confidential information and referral service to connect local residents with needed human services and volunteer opportunities; an ongoing service.
In order to develop these initiatives, the United Way seeks to build coalitions, like the one that is working to bring the community pharmacy to the county, to make each program become a reality.
Anyone interested in assisting the United WTay in bringing the pharmacy or any other of its initiatives to Citrus County can do so through donations. For more information, call 527-8894.
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

Experience as wife
Recently, Hillary Clinton has been apologizing for negative remarks her support people are making against Barack Obama. And where did Clinton get those 35 years' experience in foreign affairs she keeps bragging about? Being the wife of the president won't cut it.

To the person complaining the Sudoku puzzle is not in the Sunday Chronicle paper...The Sudoku appears twice on Sunday in the comics section and also in USA Weekend section.
Goodbye, Inverness
Our clean town of Inverness is almost gone, looking like New Port Richey. Another Dunkin' Donuts, another Wal-Mart, another plaza. Oh dear, be careful what you wish for. I only wanted another store besides TG&Y. Please come back to our clean town. I guess it's gone. Must look someplace else. And another and another and another, another hotel. How sad. Goodbye, old Inverness, we loved you. I hope I don't have long on this Earth because I really miss the old Inverness. God bless everyone and may our New Year be healthier, happier and more content.

Dem counteractions
The current Congress, led by Democrats, is a national disgrace. Its leadership, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are a national joke. Gasoline prices are the highest in our history, yet Congress refuses to take positive action to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
Our economy is being devastated and we are suffering. Records indicate that the leading congressional critic of the Iraq war, Congressman John Murtha, was rewarded with millions of dollars of pork-barrel earmarks for his district Sen. Hillary Clinton recently requested $1 million to commemorate the orgy at Woodstock, N.Y., where sex, booze and drugs prevailed. What was she thinking? Sandy Bergen former Clinton national security adviser went to the national archives, stole and destroyed copies of documents that were to be reviewed by the 9/11 Commission. He was convicted of the same.
The Bush Administration proposed a $5-billion increase in the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). The Senate voted for a $35-billion increase. Not to be outdone, the House voted for a $50-billion increase. This would have created a program benefiting some families of four earning almost $83,000 a year.
The Bush administration proposed a compromise; Democrats refused. Bush vetoed the bill. Democrats would rather have the uninformed public castigate the president If Democrats were serious about health care for needy children, a compromise would be in order. But they would rather play their silly little games of "gotcha."

New money needed
Dr. Dixon's column a few weeks ago said he'd like things to stay like they were in the 1960s. He also agrees with Commissioners Phillips, Valentino and Bartell on high impact fees. He says we don't need growth and that it's old money from the snowbirds that keeps this county going.
Wrong! The younger generation keeps this county going. Who pays your bills when the Yankees go home?
We heed to start supporting our county. We do need some businesses here. Your high impact fees hurt the little guy.
For anyone to even think of building a home here, it costs them $34,000 to start
Dr. Dixon, sit back and take a good look Maybe you and our county officials have big bucks and don't care about our town, but we do. We heed new money and you can keep yqiur old money! It seems all the money is put in Inverness. What is wrong with Homosassa?
Our county is dying slowly, th%nks to the wasteful spending by the county commissioners. When I go to Inverness, I see sidewalks and hurricane fencing going miles to nowhere and a boardwalk in the center of town. I have yet to see anyone using them.
Homosassa could use sidewalks on Fishbowl Drive and Halls River Road. I've seen elderly people walk in those areas and I pray they make it
Another waste of money is the jcom-munity service officers. One of these officers told me, that if we did not have them, the sheriff would havje to put on more deputies. These people are volunteers who ride in large cars and burn gas. They cannot take care of any problems. Most are elderly. I'd rather see more deputies.
The sheriff should try to get more people to do Neighborhood Watcjhes. At least we won't have big cars and burn $3.05 a gallon of gas floating around to catch someone watering their lawn.
In closing, I want to say: "County commissioners, take a long last look at your offices. At the next election, voters are going to do a clean sweep!

Tale of blue lines, a byline and a toilet paper dress
Iexercise caution about repeating stuff just because it's in print or on the Internet. Even so, the inclination is to accept as fact material that is presented by the media, be it printed or electronic.
With that said, a somewhat "iffy" article caught my eye recently that I feel compelled to share with you readers. The headline, ripped straight from an Internet news site, was:
"Bride in Toilet Paper Dress to Tie Knot in Times Square Restroom."
Fred Brannen A SLICE OF LIFE
The blurb briefly disclosed that a couple of lovebirds have obtained a designer gown made of glue, tape and a certain popular brand of toilet paper and that they plan to have their nuptials in the toilet
The dress was described as a masterpiece of fashion that recently won the 2007 Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest What contest? Who knew?
I suppose if you're going to don toi-
let tissue for your wedding, it seems in order to do the deed in a restroom.
I'm treading on thin ice.
Cheryl, my sweetheart, my wife and the love of my life, is also my partner and my helpmate.
Among other things, she meticulously edits for social acceptability the content of my columns. She does so with a firm hand and a blue pen.
She reads what I write before it is submitted for publication words, phrases or ideological concepts she deems inappropriate are crossed out with a blue line. If she "blue-lines" something, it is never to be seen under my byline.
I'm aware of her standards and try to avoid certain subjects volatile political issues, sports and above all, toilet jokes. She'll let me slide on politics or sports occasionally, but potty humor is always out. I'm hoping she sees enough redeeming value in this piece to let it become ink on newsprint
Oh well, here goes:
I can almost hear the sounds of adulation as the bride joins the rest of the wedding party in the John, "Here comes the bride, all dressed in white white, extra strength and extra soft, two-ply toilet tissue."
Do you suppose the groom has
selected a "plumber's friend" to be his best man?
Enough already.
Folks do unusual things.
Who am I to judge?
If two young people in love choose to be wedded in a public privy, so be it From such a beginning, there's nowhere to go but up this might be just what these kids need to keep their marriage from being flushed down the commode a few years hence.

Letters to the EDITOR
Not so secular
I never expected the "nativity" to be in the Hot Corner of Sound Off. Having said that I would respond to one call-in who is quoted as saying, "These foreigners need to go back to where they came from and worship their own way."
I would humbly suggest to the caller that they cast blame and contempt in the wrong direction. This issue has nothing to do with foreigners in our country. This issue in my opinion has to do with the social progressives, agnostics, atheists and to some extent those of the liberal persuasion of our great nation. These are Americans who believe that our country, the United States of America, is a "secular" nation; Americans who would have ^ou believe that this country was founded under secular ideologies and principles; Americans who would remove God, Christ and any mention of a divine being from the grand picture of America.
In other words, the bottom line "Separation of Church and State" in the Declaration of Independence words are spoken and written such as "Laws of nature and of Natures God." They are "Endowed by their Creator." "Appealing to the Supreme Judge of the World." The "Protection of Divine providence."
These words hardly seem secular to my ears. Those of us who profess and are willing to witness to our Christianity are being driven underground. There are many of us who profess to be Christians who refuse to stand up and declare our Christian faith.
We live at a time when political correctness stifles the very essence of why the pilgrim fathers came to this country in the first place. They came here because they did not want to Worship a mortal man (king) and his beliefs (faith). They came to worship their God, their deity in freedom! The nativity to those of the Christian faith is a symbol of their faith, their belief in the birth of Jesus Christ.
In closing, I would quote Alexander Hamilton who in 1775 said, "The saered.rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments, or musty records. They are written as with a sun beam in the whole volume of human nature by the hand of the Divinity itself, and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power."
God Bless America!

Constant fires
For four years, since I moved from Pinellas County, I have lived in fear for my life, my property and home, from a neighbor.
I have called the sheriff, fire department, code enforcement and animal control numerous times for violations. I am frustrated and disgusted since I get no help from any of these agencies.
' The latest incident is the continuous fires going day and night, burning house trash and bringing in tree logs from outside sources. He leaves these fires burning through the night. The odor is breath-taking, plus this is illegal. With winds that are dangerous for burning, he has gasoline, grill gas, wood picnic table, scraps of wood all within 10 to 15 feet of flames, and tons of fallen oak leaves that would ignite instantly.
:- I have embers and ashes flying onto my property constantly.
The fire department was here two nights ago, but apparently all he got was a slap on the wrist because he still burns.
It seems no one in authority cares for law-abiding citizens.
j I have lived in Florida almost 30 years, and when I moved here I thought I would have a nice life. But it has been a total nightmare. I cannot leave my home without the worry of fires or robbery. I've been forced to install a
fence, acquire a watch dog and install alarm systems. I never had to feel any of this was necessary wherever else I resided in Florida.
I don't know what writing you will do, or if it will get me any help, but I felt it necessary to let you know what goes on here and that laws are not enforced as they should be. No one wants to do their job properly. It's almost like they're afraid of something.
I am also writing to county commissioners, but I'm sure it will all be a waste of time.
When someone or something happens that causes death or destruction, then we will read about it and maybe enforce laws, like we always do after the fact

Free exercise clause
I am not sure what ploy L. M. Eastman referred to in his Dec. 24 letter about Romney and religion. Eastman obviously does not believe the free exercise clause of the First Amendment, which guarantees all citizens the right to believe as they please. Apparently, this only applies to those who believe as Eastman does.
Mitt Romney was not responding to the religious people on the extreme right as Eastman notes, but was addressing this issue because of the misunderstanding and misinterpretation in the enlightened press about his faith. The small group Eastman refers to ignores the fact that the speech was carried on television for all to hear and see. There was no secret plot
Eastman does get one thing right, and that is that we do have an secular government, but what he ignores is that for the first 100 years or so all laws were based on Biblical Principles including the founding documents, and even law schools taught that all laws must conform to Biblical Principles to be approved. This gets to the main point of the survival of any nation, which is that the government must respect all citizens and their beliefs, even if they claim to have none. Our Founding Fathers understood this, but they also firmly believed that without the morality, which comes from the Bible, the constitutional form of government would not survive.
This is what the progressives can't grasp. They cannot separate the opinion of a person of faith from religion being forced down their throat The person of faith adheres to a set of moral truths from which to make decisions. People of faith are completely opposed to any government-established religion more so than the progressives are, but they understand that social institutions must function according to a traditional set of moral truths or only the rich and powerful will be served. This is referred to as survival of the fittest Only moral truths provide a protection for all citizens.
This is why the progressives should thank their lucky stars that people of faith are involved in government

Pork for protection
This present bill, which the president is all but forced to sign, is nothing but pork for our protection, to provide money for our military in Iraq. It includes 13,000 "pork-barrel projects," i.e. $750 million for bike trails in Minnesota.
Yet these same liberal loonies criticize and blame President Bush for the national deficit and debt, while they are playing the role of Santa Claus, and Sugar Daddy/Mama by giving away our tax dollars, and that for the express purpose of buying votes.
This is absolutely disgraceful, and contemptible.

Disability stickers
To the call about people leaving their disability stickers on their windshield while they're driving: I totally agree. The law says you're supposed to take them off your windshield while you're driving and not leave them hanging there. It is an impairment to your vision. I don't understand why people do this...
Whiners, go to work
It's really funny to read all these articles about people whining and complaining about one thing or another about the road system, about trash, about people not being polite about this and that. Instead of whining, why don't they join some groups that do volunteer work that help them? I've joined a couple of groups myself, since I have spare time, that help alleviate some of these problems. Rather than sit and complain about them, why don't you try doing something to help the problem rather than whine?
Idle airport
Regarding expansion of the Inverness Airport: Five airplanes during the weekend is a lot of traffic for this airport. Sometimes no plane lands there for days. With the exception of the planes based there, this airport is practically abandoned. The office is closed more than it's open and there is virtually no traffic most of the time. For the county to expand this airport, spending millions of dollars of taxpayer money, is totally irresponsible. Two airports are not needed for this small county.
Mad at Santa
I just thought it was cute. Last night, my husband was sitting watching television, teasing that he'd like to wait to see when Santa Claus comes. The cable went out and he got mad. He figured Santa Claus came and put the cable out. He got so mad, he ate the cookies, drank the milk and said he'll have to wait 'til he's 70 years old because he really wants to see Santa Claus come to the house. Merry Christmas.
Parade direction
This is in answer to the call "Parade going north." I agree 110 percent maybe even 500 percent/The parade needs to definitely go back to going the other direction, back south, like it used to. And it needs to definitely, definitely, definitely be at night so more of us can come and bring our grandkids. Most of us work in the daytime and it's very hard for us to get there when they have a daytime parade. I totally agree that if they want a daytime parade,
Sound OFF-
they can go to Inverness, Beverly Hills, wherever they have them. But Crystal River should keep their night parade that we've had for the last 30 to 40 years.
Thanks, Inverness
This is about Inverness City Council. I like my trash picked up at my door. People in the county have to hire private sanitation ... I like sewer and water and I'm glad I don't have to pay $16,000 for a septic system. After all, anything 10 years (old) or more will be declared no good watch. I like the fact that my roads are fixed and swept^and the county will not do that. Get out of the city and let my kids buy your house so they can have amenities the city supplies and the county doesn't. Thank you, council, for running a tight city with foresight and people who work together.
Any scientists?
Isn't it amazing that all politicians are pundits on all the scientific matters in the world. You notice that all "conservatives" are experts and know that there is no such thing as global warming, while all so-called liberals are experts on the fact that there is global warming. Are there any scientists around nowadays? Hmm?
Parking garage
It's Dec. 26. If the county commissioners are going to clear a piece of land for a parking garage, why don't they make it a two-level parking garage with two levels of offices above it? That way, they serve several functions with one purchase and one piece of property, all of it close to the Inverness courthouse.
Build in Lecanto
The county's being forced to buy a piece of property in Inverness for probably $380,000 because there's not enough parking for the existing office buildings in downtown Inverness. Why are we even considering adding buildings there with no parking when we could build in Lecanto, which is centrally located and would be convenient for all residents?
Store not supported
I see a caller says they need a grocery store in Floral City. Well, what they don't know is, they had a grocery store there at one time and the people never participated. They had good food in there and their meat was excellent. I think they should try to get that same lady who owned that grocery store to go back in there and reopen and get the same butcher, because they had a good butcher there. It was a nice place to shop.
Clean up after dog
I'm calling about the people who walk their dogs on our island. We live off an island here in Crystal River off Kings Bay, and our children play out in our yard ... There's a lady ... who constantly brings her big dog down on our island and lets it do its business without picking anything up. Our children go out to play in the afternoon and, on more than one occasion, have stepped in it or have brought it in on their clothes. I think she should have more responsibility. If she's going to walk her dogs on our island, let her bring a bag or a scooper and clean up their mess after they've walked on the island.
Helping Bucks
A lot of wonderful people in our county have opened their hearts and wallets to come to the aid of the Daniel Buck family, who lost their home and possessions in a tragic fire. Many of these generous persons have requested to remain anonymous, myself included; but I would like to thank the following merchants and people who made generous donations to this family. I believe they deserve recognition for helping support the community in time of need. Heartfelt thanks to Bealls, Mr. Yates and Renee, for the gift cards, and to TJ Maxx, Mr. Minick, for the gift card, Subway Shop, Ed, for the meal coupons, and to Regal Cinemas, Dennis Daley, for the movie passes and pizzas. A night out will afford the family a chance to relax for an evening during this stressful time. I also want to thank "Allie," "Harley Guy" and "Elaine," who gave cash donations toward the purchase of gift items for the family. I am happy to see that accounts have been opened for the Buck family at Colonial Bank in Inverness, and SunTrust Bank at Sugarmill Woods. I believe in a lot of things. I believe in people, in children nestled all snug in their beds, in stockings hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that well, you know who, might soon be there ... I believe in miracles, do you? Blessings to everyone and a wonderful New Year.
Small town charm
What's with these people who move to these small towns in Florida, then complain because these little towns don't have something? First someone complained about no streetlights out on Gospel Island, then someone complained about no Macy's in Inverness, and now someone's complaining about no grocery stores in Floral City. Hey, nobody forced you to move to these little towns. You saw what was and wasn't there before moving. So why complain now?

Christmas morning
Heavy bags
I'm just calling because we just saw a thing on the news this is Christmas Eve about an organization in Tampa where they allow the parents to come in of, you know, the poor people, to come in and pick out the food that their family likes to eat and also to pick out presents for their children that they can take home and wrap and put under their tree so
they can get it on Christmas SoUtld Off 583-0579
morning. *i
I think all the organizations that gather gifts for the poor children are doing a wonderful thing, but what they do in many cases is have a party, you know, three days before Christmas or a week before Christmas, and give them these gifts and even have Santa Claus there giving them out.
Well, that is not Christmas morning. What they ought to do, like this organization, is give the toys and let the parents come in and pick out the toys and bring them home and put them under their tree so their children can open gifts on Christmas morning like those who are more fortunate.
I did some grocery shopping today. Wouldn't you think that the people that bag your groceries would see an elderly person and not make the bag so heavy, especially if they're riding in an electric cart. I'm 78 years old. I cannot pick up a heavy bag, and I have to empty them when I get home in order to bring them in the house. Please, please, when you have an elderly person, don't pack their bags so heavy.
Obscured vision
Planting anything that obscures the vision at an intersection is stupid. I would think that anyone involved in an accident due to obstruction at an intersection would be able to sue for the accident. This is not a case of not stopping; it's a case of not being able to see the other vehicles in the intersection. If you are on Dunklin trying to cross Citrus Springs Boulevard, you cannot see approaching vehicles coming from your right because of the height of the median and someone planted tall grass on top of it. Took a real genius to come up with that.
SHADES
Continued from Page 1C
he may have said, "You are absolutely crazy. Find a place for $1,000!" Our ace Human Resources director Deborah Kamlot found a compromise agreeable to all parties concerned.
In the middle of the month, the local Criminal Justice Academy graduated a new bunch of graduates.
On the last day of the month, reporter Jim Hunter and I traveled to Tallahassee for the annual legislative session preview hosted by The Associated Press. All sorts of Florida big-wigs were there, including the governor. I was disappointed, however, because it was the first such meeting I'd attended where they did not serve soup with lunch.
February
On Feb. 1, reporter Terry Witt had his 2,800th story published in the Chronicle since starting here six and a half years before. The man is a writing machine. He's now up to 3,116!
A week later we said a very reluctant farewell to copy editor Sarah Gatling, who was moving to the Tornado Alley region hoping for a little more excitement. As a parting gift, she gave me an eclectic desktop sand pit with a Yoda figurine, two rakes, one bench, some tumbled rocks and a Christmas tree with a big butterfly on it. Fortunately, it sounds like she may be returning and I'll be returning her parting gift to her.
A week later, Jim Hunter left his reporting position to be editor of the Riverland News in Dunnellon. Jim couldn't stand being away, and made his return to us a couple of months ago.
A week later, we had a meeting to review the results from our Leveraging Difference survey. It's good stuff, but something straight out of a "Dilbert" cartoon.
March
On March 7, wife, Neale, and I had lunch with her sister, Susan, and brother-in-law, Beef, at the Plantation Inn. They were down from Jacksonville planning a weeklong golf outing for Beef and his friends. It impressed me that a group of businessmen from Jacksonville would ID a half dozen courses in our little corner of Florida and plan to come here to support our restaurants and liquor outlets... oh, and the golf courses, of course.
The next week, a very energetic college senior came down to interview for a reporter position. Keri Lynn McHale was
hired a couple of months later, and has since made friends with half of Citrus County.
That same week, I turned a spry 50.
The following week, this spry 50-year-old along with wife and friends were off to New York City to continue the legacy of adolescence that I hope never to lose we went to rock concerts, stayed up late, hung out in Greenwich Village and generally acted like smalltown folks in the big city.
The last week of the month, I attended the^always-stimulat-ing Landmark Community Newspapers Inc. editorial conference in Louisville. Like the Leveraging Difference survey meeting, it's good stuff, but something straight out of a "Dilbert" cartoon.
April
In the first week of April, I had the opportunity to judge the Lecanto Primary School speech contest. I had no idea that there would be an auditorium packed with students. It really was an event of note.
The next day I attended a conference in Orlando on "essential tools for planning and budgeting." It was dry as dirt and does not rise to "Dilbert"-like recognition.
A couple of weeks later, a handful of Chronicle editors as well as editors with our Citrus community weekly papers the Beacon, Current, Pioneer and Visitortraveled to Cedar Key for a conference with the editors of other Florida newspapers in the Citrus Publishing family. Since my life revolves around the Chronicle, it's easy to lose sight of how much our company has grown in my 18 years here. We have newspapers from Williston to Wakulla, from Marion County to Gadsden County and from Chiefland to the very island where the meeting took place. These are all relatively small community newspapers with the express goal of being the foremost source of local news in the communities they serve.
May
Once again, I had the privilege of attending the Citrus Hills Info Fiesta. It's actually a pretty cool event There are representatives from the hospitals, government branches and all sorts of businesses and organizations there. The residents take their fiesta seriously and it's very well attended. It's easy for people to retire to Florida and withdraw into their quaint community, so it's always nice to see so many people taking an active interest in the broader entity thatis Citrus County.
OnMmetfm^lmr my calendar, I have the names of Brad Bautista and Shemir Wiles written down. I'm not sure exactly why their names are there because they didn't
start working here at the same time but, regardless, they're both copy editors here now and doing some really good things.
A week and a half later, there's a note saying "KP's last day." That's the day we said so-long to reporter Khuong Phan, who's now living in the greater metro New York area working with a small PR outfit. He's doing well and keeps in touch.
The entry on Sunday, May 27, simply says "Melissa's death" referring to Melissa Hess. What a tragedy, but what an absolutely fantastic kid I and so many others got to know during her short 18 years of life.
June
The first Tuesday of June, we had a Primary Election. That seems strange now.
That same week, the Chronicle had its hurricane planning meeting, which fortunately didn't prove to be necessary this past year.
The entry on June 16 notes the 50th birthday of childhood friend Greg Fiorino. A lot of my friends turned 50 this past year. We now spend as much time talking about knee and hip replacements as rock concerts.
The following week, I attended a conference at Ponte Vedra. It was in a swanky golf resort where the price of a bowl of soup runs about what I'll pay for a good Sunday dinner.
On Friday, May 22, my calendar says "Pete" but then it's scratched off. Pete's one of my best buddies and was to visit here from the Catskills. Well, it turns out that Pete and I miscommunicated and I had the right date but the wrong month. Neither Pete nor I are very good in the planning department.
The next week was the General Election and, unrelated, the birthday of one Mr Tim Hess. How old? Fifty, of course.
July
I have a note on my calendar to meet with Dave Pieklik on July 3. That's when he advised he was leaving the Chronicle to work for the city of Inverness. With all the events the city has had in recent months, I run into Dave almost as often as when he was a reporter here. He seems to be doing well and enjoying his new job.
While I really enjoy the various festivities that take place in downtown Inverness, there's something else I'm a big fan of hazardous waste amnesty days. From 3 to 6 p.m. July 19,1 was among those folks who hauled their old gas, paint and what-not off to be disposed of for free. Not only.-^itjani opportunity to tft?^*fight thing, but it's a reason to duck out of work a little early!
My entry on the July 26 calendar square is a simple "10:30 Dr. Hirsch." That was a few
days after I'd learned that I fractured my ankle. I was pleasantly surprised when Dr. Hirsch said I wouldn't need a cast and I was set up with a big blue boot that I wore for the next several weeks.
July 28 was the Key Training Center's Run for the Money Telethon, which features a lovely and bubbly co-host (no, not Dennis Miller).
August
The month started with a flight to Albany, N.Y, then a drive to the Catskills to attend the wedding of the aforementioned buddy Pete. Neale and I typically rent the bargain-basement sub-sub-compact cars when traveling, but my eyes lit up when the rental agent mentioned that we could have a Mustang for just a few bucks more. I blurted out, "We'll take it." What I hadn't thought through was that I had a big, blue boot on my right foot, so Neale got to do all the driving.
Aug. 17's entry notes that it was copy editor Chad Roberts' last day on the job. He's up in the Carolinas somewhere now, pursuing a journalism career closer to home.
The next week there was a meeting to discuss late deadlines for Sports. We love to get high school, college and the pro football games in the next-day's papers, but it's always a tricky balance when photos have to be shot, stories have to be written, pages have to be produced and printed and carriers have to hit the streets to distribute about 30,000 papers all within a few short hours.
The notation on the Aug. 29 block simply says "CB" (aka Charlie Brennan) and has an arrow stretching through the rest of the days of the month. That was an Aug. 29 I'd been looking forward to for months. That was the beginning of the longest vacation I've taken since starting at the Chronicle in 1990. We were heading to Seattle, then up to Bellingham, Wash., and the Cascade Mountains and who-knew-where beyond that. What I didn't know when making the original notation is that a big, blue boot would be accompanying us throughout the trip.
September
That line following "CB" at the end of August continued across the calendar squares of the first week of September Had I taken the calendar along to Washington, there might be entries that say, "Hobble around Seattle," "Hobble around the trails of Mount Baker," and "Watch whales in Bellingham
^a^Sfe_did get to witness his-t8ry.whiie.on a whale-watching excursion. It was the first time since 1953 that whales had been seen in Bellingham Bay. We saw dozens of orcas.
On Sept. 12, I attended an
in-house customer-service training session. A lot of good tips were offered. Unfortunately, even sound practices can sometimes backfire. When responding to customer inquiries by telephone, it was recommended to end the conversation with, "Is there anything else we can help you with today?" When that question was posed a few weeks later, some joker told one of our editors in an off-color way that, yes, he needed a date.
On Sept 14, the doctor gave me the OK to ditch my big, blue boot
The next week, I sat in on my first "webinar," which is basically a seminar done on the Internet (aka "Web").
The next day, I met with a few of our newspaper carriers who stock the news racks around the county. While our number of subscribers continues to climb, rack sales have not been all that strong. Their observations make great sense: If you don't grab readers with interesting stuff on the top half of Page 1 the only area you can see in the racks people will buy another newspaper. They said the front pages with Iraq stories up top don't sell well, and that crime-type stories do sell well.
On Sept. 24, I was off, returning from a Bob Dylan concert in Atlanta.
Sept. 25, Managing Editor Mike Arnold was off to celebrate his anniversary.
October
On Oct 9, the United Way had its annual campaign kick-off luncheon.
A week and a half later, Sheriff Jeff Dawsy met with the editorial board to discuss Crystal River's request that the sheriff's office take over policing duties in the city.
A couple days later, Neale and I went to see an interesting concert in Gainesville featuring Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas and Edgar Meyer. It wasn't bluegrass, it wasn't classical, it wasn't really any form of music I could put my finger on, but it was excellent.
The following weekend* Neale and I spent a chunk of the day at the Historic Hernando School, meeting mail carriers as they brought in load after load after load of donated food they'd picked up on their rounds. The food went to the Family Resource Center.
On Oct 31, my calendar reminds me not to miss my long-overdue dentist appointment on Nov. 1.
November
On Nov. 1, I went to the dentist
On Nov. 2, we went to Gator Growl aka "The world's largest cocktail party," which seems funny since they don't serve alcohol. The sound sys-
tem was so out of whack you couldn't hear anything from where we were sitting except at the end when Lynyrd Skynyrd rocked out on four songs.
The next day, we went to the Festival of the Arts in the morning. In the evening, Neale arid stepdaughter Tobey went to see Trans-Siberian' Orchestra.
The following Saturday we set off for Orlando to visit la friend and see his son's band perform. Unfortunately, the fire marshal closed down the venue where the band was to play because of overcrowding the night before. Too bad. I've yet to hear the Ocala-Gaines-ville-based band, named The Dead Songwriters, but I have their first CD and won't be surprised if they hit the big-times
December
On Dec. 7, we attended the grand opening of the beautiful new library in Homosassa. lit really is something to be proi|d of. During a speech during the ceremony, U.S. Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite erred in noting that it was "D-Day." The audience was quick to let her know it was Pearl Harbor Day arid she was embarrassed. "I know that... I know that," she said. I felt sorry for her because it was one of those goofs that you just kick yourself for.
On Dec. 12, Publisher Gerry Mulligan took the department heads to lunch. That was nice, but that date also coincided with his birthday (not sure if it's the exact date, though). To his surprise, the waitress delivered a cake, then proceeded to sing him "Happy Birthday" ala Marilyn Monroe. Gerry turns an interesting shade of red when he's embarrassed.
On Dec. 18, we had a stimulating teleconference with our corporate office relating to how we can better serve our readers. Not surprisingly, it was good stuff but, again, nearly straight out of a "Dilbert" cartoon.
In recent days, we've had Christmas parties and most everyone here has grabbed some vacation time so they could be with family and friends. My family enjoyed the Christmas Eve service at the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park
And now we're on the edge of a new year. Among my resolutions is to never write another column this long. That, and to get one of those "Dilbert" ties like our ad exec Alan Place has.
May the new year be filled with promise and happiness for you.

WINDOW
Continued from Page 1C
county's struggle with the Homosassa sewer project has made officials gun-shy about trying another such initiative. The new rules on the high-priced septic tanks make sewer projects much more financially feasible.
While pledges have been made to pass ordinances banning fast-release fertilizers, the new rules have not yet been adopted. And storm-water runoff continues to pollute much of the county surface water. This is a high-priority goal for most elected officials in the county . but it's a goal where not a lot of work gets done.
Mental Health Services Grade: B Progress has been made in dealing with the mental health needs of the county's citizens. A clubhouse has been opened by NAMI to serve those in transition. The
Centers has expanded services to young people in need and there is growing support for a; mental health court in our county judicial system. Because of strong advocacy of people like Joan Murphy, Laura Lee Putzback, Marilyn Booth and others, real pjr^gress is being enjoyed. Much work n^eds to be done, but achievements are' being recorded.
J | Youth Development
11 Grade:B
The efforts to create a YMCA in Chorus County finally got moving in 2007, and other nonprofit programs have expanded their efforts to serve children. A bright spot has been the creation of the Teen Driving Task
A bright spot has been the creation of the Teen Driving Task Force, which is trying to buck state trends and offer a good training experience for
teenagers getting ready to drive.
Force, which is trying to buck state trends and offer a good training experience for teenagers getting ready to drive.
The Boys & Girls Clubs continue to expand in the county and Big Brothers, Big Sisters has become more active. The Early Childhood Coalition is addressing the problems of the very young.
Good things are happening for children.
The county's school dropout rate is still too high and the pregnancy rate is unacceptable.
Manatee Protection Grade: D My, how we love to talk Local government has done little to address the problems of protecting the manatees and former Gov. Jeb Bush tried to reach back into the Charlie Crist administration and strip the manatee of its protective status. Fortunately, Gov. Crist got active and stopped the foolish slap at the manatee.
The county and city of Crystal River have talked about speed zones and manatee protection, but they've done nothing serious and suggest that someone else has responsibility.
The good news is that citizen activities and some progressive dive shop owners have suggested their own ideas about how to further protect the endangered manatees.
The bad news is that if local government doesn't help address the issue, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service is going to step in and develop new regulations to greatly restrict swimmers and divers from having any interaction with the manatee. Get ready to see this process begin in 2008.
Government Space Needs Grade: F
This has been the issue where there has been more talk and less action than any other. The Tampa Bay Devil Rays are closer to winning a World Series than our county commission is to producing solutions for the space needs issue. Control Government Spending Grade: D
There has been a lot of talk about controlling government spending in Florida during 2007, but there has been little real action A flawed constitutional amendment will appear on the primary ballot in January, but the tax relief offered via that proposal is spotty and unfair.
Our local county officials claim they have reduced spending, but the county commission's general fund increased from $52.79 million in the 2006-07 budget year to $58.68 million in the 2007-08 budget year That's an increase of 11 percent
That doesn't feel like tax relief and the county deserves a D grade for the effort
Economic Development Grade: B
Here's the good news. Randy Welker is the new economic development director in the county and he understands how to make things happen. He gives us a lot of confidence that progress will be made.
The actual economy in the county stinks as the homebuilding industry has crashed and real estate sales are off 60 percent
But there is good news on the horizon. Progress Energy is going to spend $2 billion putting pollution control equipment on the energy site near Crystal River. The utility plans to spend another $5 billion to $8 billion constructing two new nuclear plants just over the county line in Levy. The impact of that spending will be a real plus for the county's economy in the years to come.
Road System Grade B
The county has made progress in
That doesn't feel like tax relief.
improving some of the roadways. County Road 491 through Beverly Hills has been completed, as has the first segment of County Road 486 from U.S. 41 in Hernando to Forest Ridge near Citrus Hills. The highway improvements on U.S. 41 south of Inverness are complete and the improvements on U.S. 19 continue.
Plans are crawling along for the extension of the Suncoast Parkway, and in the tortoise- speed world of the state bureaucracy, that's a good thing.
It should be noted that the dumbest improvement completed was on U.S. 19 at County Road 44 going out to Fort Island Gulf Beach. In an engineering feat that defies logic, the passing lane on U.S. 19 suddenly turns into a left-hand turn lane. Traffic snarls happen every day, which goes to prove that outsourcing the engineering work to the Philippines is a bad idea. (That could be the only excuse for letting this happen the engineer who did the design never drove on the road.)
Other low points include U.S. 41 north of Inverness, the intersection of State Road 44 and C.R. 486 near Meadowcrest and the decision to take Croft Avenue off the five-year improvement plan.
But there has been progress, and for that we are grateful.
Affordable Housing Grade C
The unintended consequence of the horrible real estate market in Florida is that some affordable housing has been created. Housing prices have declined from the highs of2005-06.
Actual housing constructed with the intent of being affordable housing has been less forthcoming, but there are three different projects that are in
When did the political careers of a few elected officials become more important than working out the larger problems that face our county?
the planning stages right now.
The hidden homeless problem in Citrus County is very real. Housing foreclosures have skyrocketed and many of these families have been unable to find new housing. Interlocal Agreement Grade F
Osama Bin Laden has a better chance of getting a hospitable greeting at George Bush's White House than Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni does at a Citrus County Commission meeting. Things haven't been much better with the city of Crystal River and the county, where the two local governments threatened to sue each other over a sewer project
When the county is not chewing up its own leadership (Richard Wesch, Tom Dick) it can even get into it with Central Florida Community College, Where barriers are being created to the expansion of the county's only branch of higher education.
The county's five constitutional officers (sheriff, tax collector, property appraiser, elections supervisor and clerk of the court) have all been doing battle with the commission over the need for additional office space.
Hey folks, why can't we all get along? When did the political careers of a few elected officials become more important than working out the larger problems that face our county? We all live in Citrus County and we should be able to treat each other with dignity and respect as we attempt to find win-win solutions for the problems that face us.
(That does not include you, Osama. We have other plans for you.)

This year's announcement was made at Oak Hill
Hospital's annual holiday function on
December 7th. This year's Associate of the Year is Heather Yount, R.N., charge nurse of
endoscopy.
Heather joined Oak Hill Hospital in January of 2001 where she worked on the fourth floor. Eventually she was appointed Charge Nurse of Endoscopy where she assists physicians and patients during endoscopy procedures. She and her husband Jeremy Yount have three daughters: Alyssa Yount, 14, Hannah Yount, 5, and Grace Yount, 2. Heather's nomination came from coworkers who extolled her attitude as a team player. Recently on a hectic day a nurse manager called the Endoscopy department inquiring if they could help by starting some of the preparation usually reserved for when a
patient reaches the floors. Although the patient was already leaving the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU), Heather went and obtained the necessary materials, preceded with the patient to the floor, and tended to the patient even taking vital signs. This act was truly appreciated by associates on the floor. For her part Heather says that she truly enjoys the people at Oak Hill Hospital. "We have a great group of people working at Oak Hill."
This year Heather was a team captain for our recent Heart Walk (Her team captured 2nd place at Oak Hill Hospital with $ 1758 of the more than $13,000 collected by Oak Hill Hospital.

pate. Anyone is welcome to participate regardless of whether or not their loved one is under hospice care. Please call Wendy Hall at (352) 5274600 if you have questions.

Citrus County (FL) Chronicle
Planning can guarantee year-round color
The New Year is a good time to plan for a succession of flowering plants in the garden. With careful selection and an understanding of when particular plants bloom in our area, you can have a tree in flower each month of the year.
Twenty-four different shrubs that bloom a few weeks each will ensure a parade of flowers, nectar and pollen all year. Flowers JAR abound. It's easy to
find 52 species to -
provide color each week Don't forget the grasses, vines and ferns to add texture, sound and variety of leaves and form throughout the seasons.
Native red maple trees, Acer rubrum, bloom in January, closely followed by flatwoods and Chickasaw plums, Prunus umbellate and P. angustifolia, respectively Mid-season camellias provide cut flowers in bowls on the table. February brings out the delicate pink blossoms on redbud trees, Cersis Canadensis, the showy clusters of snowy panicles on the Walter's viburnum,
Jane Weber
Viburnum obovata, and of course the old-fashioned azaleas, Rhododendron species.
My favorite flowering vine in January is our Florida native Carolina jessamine, Gelsemium semper-virens; it is not an Asian jasmine. Jessamine is evergreen, multi-stemmed, frost-hardy and xeric (drought-tolerant). It climbs and twines over any convenient prop, from pine trees, to chain-link ErS fences, lampposts, EMEINi tall obelisks, wide
_ pergolas or graceful
arching arbors. In my yard, jessamine happily wanders as a ground cover. If it gets too thick or threatens to trip me as I wander the paths, then I will clip off long strands and plait or twist them into wreaths and garlands to decorate the nursery.
Carolina jessamine grows in sun to part shade, but flowers more profusely in full sun. It prefers well-drained, sandy, acidic soil; however, it adapts well to many soil types even wet, mucky swamps.
Once established, supplemental irrigation is unneces-

sary. Pest-free jessamine is a rapid grower and may be pruned to promote bushiness or to rejuvenate an older specimen. Its natural range is from Central Florida north to Virginia and west to Texas. Quite long-lived, some of the vines that were here when I
bought my plot of land in 1996 are still vigorous and healthy.
The blossoms fall to strew the ground with petals beneath their host Jessamine will not kill a host tree, though I prefer to provide a man-made prop in a garden setting. Look for bright yellow, trumpet-shaped
jessamine flowers in the crowns of trees along the roadsides in January. Further south, it blooms earlier but is usually in full flower here in Zones 8 and 9 by mid-month. Several selected cultivars are more fragrant and bloom longer and more densely than the pure native vine.
Leaves are opposite on the reddish stem. From 1 to 4 inches long, leaves are lance-shaped, dark green, pointed at the tip and shiny on the top-sides. Seeds are in a slim capsule about a half-inch long. Birds can spread them far from the parent plant
If gardeners choose plants thoughtfully, a garden can be filled with flowers in succession throughout the year. Well-rooted but not pot-bound plants can be planted at any time of year, provided they are watered until established. Plan now to have flowers in bloom all year.
