FIRE SAFETY TIPS
If you plan to use a fire-
place, make sure the flue
is open so dangerous car-
bon monoxide can go up
the chimney.
r If you use real wood in
your fireplace, you should
have your chimney
cleaned every other year.
If you use space heaters,
keep papers, clothing and
any other flammable
objects at least three feet
away from them.
Keep space heaters away
from high-traffic areas,
such as hallways and
doorways.
a Have a carbon monoxide
detector. The invisible,
odorless and potentially
deadly gas is present
when heating devices with
flames are used.
a Never use a stove or oven
to heat your home.

Periodically, the Chronicle runs a Postscript
about a person who has died. Not every person
written about was famous or well-known, and not
everyone who has died is written about
However, every person who has died has some-
how contributed to the fabric of the community,
from educators, ministers and community volun-

natives and whooping cranes. We also lost
courageous military members serving in Iraq
and Afghanistan.
Although we can't print everyone's name and

series of some of the people of Citrus County
who have died during 2007:

Testing Laboratory in Inverness

486, created a sinkhole roughly
40 to 50 feet wide and 6 feet
deep under five storage units.
Aug. 22 The City of
Inverness will get another face-
lift thanks to a $714,000 grant
from the Florida Department of
Transportation. Officials will
use the money to add lighting
and landscaping throughout the
city.
Aug. 23 For the second time

ered with severe injuries from a

Hernando woman was charged
with domestic aggravated bat-
tery after she allegedly hit a
man with a bowl of spaghetti. A

Citrus County Sheriff's deputies
the woman hit and slapped him
after they had a verbal argu-
ment and when he tried to leave
the room, he was hit on the back
of the head with a bowl of
spaghetti. When deputies
arrived at the residence, the
man was lying on the floor, with
a large cut across his head,
bleeding profusely.

sentences John Couey to the
death penalty.
Aug. 27 Supervisor of
Elections Susan Gill announced
her intention to run for a fourth
term.

Chronicle

Operation Migration officials
returned from the holidays and
flew 48 miles Saturday, from
Cumberland County, Tenn. to
Meigs County, Tenn.
The flight was the first miles
flown in 23 days. The cranes
arrived in Cumberland, Tenn.
on Dec. 6 and except for relo-
cating to a new pen, the crew
has been grounded because of
weather and the holidays.
Rain prevented the whoop-
ing cranes and crew from fly-
ing Sunday and freezing fog
kept the cranes grounded
Monday, which was day 69 of'
the trip. So far, the cranes have
traveled 738.3 miles of the
scheduled 1,250 miles.
The birds left Necedah
Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin on
Oct. 13, and will arrive sometime
inJanuary ai l1,, Chassahowitzka
National Wildlife Refuge.


Operation Migration teaches
whooping cranes to migrate from
Wisconsin to Florida each year
In the first five years of the pro-
gram, about 60 birds have been
taught a migration route
between Wisconsin and Florida.
This is four times the number
that existed in the early 1940s.
Operation Migration Inc. works
in partnership with nine private
and government agencies.
This year's whooping crane
flyover event will be at the
Dunnellon Park Commerce
Airport and the public is invit-
ed to attend. The airport is at
15070 S.W 111th St., off Marion
County Road 484. For day-to-
day information about the
cranes progress, visit
www.operationmigration.org
and click on "In The Field."
For directions to the flyover
event at the Dunnellon
Airport, call the Crystal River
Refuge at 563-2088.

remains at a constant temperature
when temperatures plummet below
the freezing mark.
Valencias are sold commercially
for juice, she said.
Oranges are no longer the main
crop at Ferris Farms, but the compa-
ny does take pains to protect them
from freezes. All the trees are
equipped with emitters that spray
water on the trees and fruit when
freezing weather hits. The main
objective is to keep the trees alive,
she said.
Gallant said the strawberries and
blueberries grown by Ferris Farms
will also be sprayed with water to
insulate them from the freezing tem-
peratures.
The coming cold spell brought
more than cooler temperatures.
Some areas of the county received a
half-inch of rain Sunday night.
In the northern region of the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District, rainfall for
the year was 45.46 inches in 2007, or
8 inches below normal, according to
district spokeswoman Robyn Hanke.
That was an improvement from
2006 when 38.73 inches fell during
the year, or almost 15 inches below
normal.
Hanke said the district recorded
2.51 inches of rain in the northern
region in December, just below nor-
mal. The normal rainfall is 2.61 inch-
es.
The continuing shortage of rain-
fall has left the Tsala Apopka Chain
of Lakes well below normal levels.
Many private docks remain dry.
District records show the Floral
City Pool is 2.82 feet below the "max-
imum desirable level, (MDL)" while
the Inverness Pool is 5.35 feet below
MDL, and the Hernando Pool is 4.21
feet below MDL. Rainfall heavily
influences the Floridian Aquifer
below the lakes, as well as the lakes
themselves, which are connected to
the aquifer.

The county needs to create a mas-
ter plan for sewer services in all of the
environmentally sensitive zones in our
community. All of those areas west of
U.S. 19 and the communities around
the lakes and rivers on the east side
need sewers. The master plan needs to
be put on paper so there are no addi-
tional exceptions granted in these
areas. A timetable needs to be created
to take all of the low-performance sep-
tic tanks off line. The high-perform-
ance septic tanks will help, but in pop-
ulated areas there needs to be sewer
systems constructed. Homeowners
need to see the plan and understand
why it's coming their way.
Storm water runoff into our lakes
and rivers needs- to be stopped.
Government can start by implement-
ing plans to stop the water from our
public road systems from running
directly into our waters. We have more
cars, more parking lots and more peo-
ple dumping pollution onto the roads
and it all ends up in our waterways.
Improve county's
road system
If the quality of life is going to be sus-
tained in Citrus County, our road net-
work must have continued improve-
ments.
The longest-term necessary
improvement is the extension of the
Suncoast Parkway through Citrus
County. While the actual completion of
the toll road might not be finished for
a decade, it's important that the plan-

n keeping with tradition, the start
of the New Year calls for a resolu-
tion list highlighting 10 goals to
make our community a better place.
Top priorities identified by the
Chronicle's editorial board for-2008
are;.:
Listen to taxpayers
about taxes
O officials with local and state govern-
ment h-ve feuded throughout 2007
over citizen complaints about high
taxes. State officials want to lower
local property taxes, while local offi-
cials just want the state politicians to
get lost
The real complaint that Floridians
have is that our elected officials have
contributed to the rising cost of living
in the Sunshine State. Property taxes,
insurance rates, hurricane insurance
and gasoline have all gone up at dou-
ble digit annual increases and resi-
Sdents can't afford the combined costs.
The Florida Legislature created a
January referendum that tinkers with
the broken property tax system. The
-effort is only another quick fix to the
mess, and won't result in any meaning-
ful reform.
Our local county commission has
S stumbled with the impact fees on new
homes and businesses, not realizing
they have just added insult to injury
during some very hard times.
Meaningful tax reform is needed on
the state and local level. The
_-Homestead Exemption has created
unequal and unfair tax bills for citi-
S zens depending on which neighbor-
hood they live in and when they pur-
S -chased their homes.
-- On the local level, the county just
keeps spending more money and rais-
ing more fees without acknowledging
that it is part of the problem.
This is an election year and those
politicians who don't get the message
are not going to get re-elected.
S--_ Protect county's
drinking water
S There are two goals concerning
water this year. The first requires our
S elected officials to make sure our
underground drinking water is pro-
tected from pollution and from devel-
S opment forces in other parts of
Florida.
There are other water districts and
communities in Florida that can see
S .when their own water resources will
be depleted, and they would love to lay
~ claim to the drinking water in this
Srdgion. Our local officials need to fight
to protect the resource.
Florida needs stronger growth man-
agement rules that restrict increases
in population density that outstrip the
natural resources in those areas.
Nancy Argenziano, our former state
senator, led the state effort to create a
Local Sources First water policy that
S sosome would like to ignore..Our current
loca. officials need to make sure that
other regions of the state adopt water
conservation policies along with
strategies to convert saltwater to
drinking water.
These strategies might be expen-
S sive, but if a region depletes its own
resources, it should not be permitted
to raid another region that has prac-
ticed better. conservation efforts. The
Southwest Florida Water Management
District could get on board with the
water conservation effort by denying a
permit to a private company to operate
a water-bottling operation for the
Three Sisters Springs property in
-- Crystal River Instead of just talking
S About Water conservation, SWFWMD
.. could actually do something positive.
hs, Protect local
water resources
The second goal concerning water
needs to stand alone from our drinking
water supply. All of our elected politi-
und cians talk about how they are opposed
Ato water pollution, but few are willing
to do anything about it.
'ith. The one positive accomplishment
--has been the Homosassa and
Chassahowitzka water and sewer proj-
ects. While the construction hasn't gone
ty well, the strategy of providing sewer
services in environmentally -sensitive-
areas is a good one. And Inverness
deserves recognition for the planned
ner expansion of its sewer plant in 2008,
which includes a water reuse effort at
I... _e-Inverness Golf and Country Club.
-- -But three things need to happen in
2008 on the local level:
f The county commission and city of
eed Crystal River need to ban fast-release
S. .fertilizers.. These- -high-nitrate-fertiliz--
- .ers wash right into our lakes, rivers and
ay, streams and create an unnatural bal-
it. ance that destroys natural vegetation
nd and fosters the growth of invasive plant
iot species. Both the city and county have
te- pledged to do this, but they have not
S...gotten the job done yet. Do it in 2008.

In the county where the Jessiba

there is yet another challenge for
Citrus County to embrace. Too many of

our school driver education program

After the tragic deaths of two Citrus
High teens Melissa Hess and M yr

ents and elected officials have goti p
together to do something. With e
help of Sheriff Jeff Dawsy,
Superintendent of Schools Sandra
"Sam" Himmel and board member Pat
Deutschman, parents Tim Hess a7id
Mary Jo Fallinske have created a Teen
Driver Challenge program that will be
made available to every high school
junior in Citrus County.
This hands-on class teaches real
safety skills to the new drivers.
Citrus County should be proud that

that amount The government
sends $492 per month ($5,900 a
year) to these families to pre-
pay the 23 percent inclusive
sales tax on the first $25,700
they spend. The family
incomes are now $41,600 and
$71,600. They will pay sales
tax only on purchases over
$25,700 to buy items which are
almost the same price as now.

ground (illegal) economy
Every dollar these people

ly baffled that the county of
Citrus would negotiate impact
fees with Crosland Builders
from North Carolina. If Wal-
Mart and other stores cause
the problems that will come
from this proposed shopping
center, yet don't pay full non-
negotiated impact fees, we as
residents will pay a heavy
price.
I personally am against
impact fees. My whole family
and extended family have
been in the construction
trades since the 1960s. Wal-
Mart's money goes to stock-
holders and a larger share to
China and abroad for cheap
products and trinkets. It will
be as bold as the purchase of
Manhattan for $24 and some
beads.
Are there any clear heads in
Citrus County government? Of
all the people or institutions,
Wal-Mart or Crosland Realty

should definitely be made to
pay the maximum amount
allowed by the law.
As homeowners or builders
from Citrus County have to
pay non-negotiated fees, so,
too, should this builder, Wal-
Mart and any other store, serv-
ice station, etc., that chooses to
build on this so-called prime
piece of real estate.
I have or hold several prop-
erties in Citrus County and
will pay more than $10,000 in
2007 taxes. Our family gets lit-
tle or nothing, depending on
where the properties are
located. We have a low crime
rate countywide, our fire serv-
ices have nice pretty trucks,
we have and will be getting
plenty of new government
buildings for the residents of
Inverness. We have no county


commissioners who live north
of County Road 486, no repre-
sentation for northeast Citrus
County We need water, sewer
and trash pickups or substa-
tions.
Before Citrus County moves
on, we need the money from

ing or builder or owner has to
pay their way. Why will we let
the superstores offthe hook?

[ Chronicle
here were hundreds of local sports stories
that found their way onto the front page of
the Citrus County Chronicle's sports sec-
tion during this calendar year. There was a state
title holder, the death of an area legend, cardiac
ki s that just wouldn't say die, several impressive
te4m accomplishments, the injury of the county's
most famous native son, a new kid in town that
m4de everyone take notice, a voting poll that
flooded our internet system and a meeting of his-
toric proportions that made the cut of 2007's top
15 local sports stories.
At the end of the day, however, using an elabo-
rate voting system in which each member of the
sport's department weighted their favorite sto-
ries 15-1 by giving their favorite story a 15, their
second a 14 and so on, the undisputed Citrus

No. 12 story of the year


County Chronicle's Sports Story of the Year
belongs to the Citrus Hurricanes golf team.
The five young ladies from Citrus High School
and their head coach together pulled off what
had previously been considered the impossible,
slaying the Goliath private school Saddlebrook
for the regional championship. Not only was it
the first regional title for girl's golf in school his-
tory, it was also the first time Saddlebrook had
not won the region in school history.
The story, which grabbed the headlines here in
Citrus County, became statewide news as even the
St Petersburg Times wrote of the young ladies
major accomplishment. At the regional and state
tournaments, when the girls were introduced,
they received a standing ovation from the other
participating schools, a further tribute to this
grandiose feat Congratulations to the Citrus Lady
Hurricanes golf team of Briana Carlson, Lauren
Bomke, Jordan Connor, Ashton Connor, Brittany
Eldridge and their head coach Michelle Connor

Today in
HISTORY
Today is Tuesday, Jan. 1, the
first day of leap year 2008. There
are 365 days left in the year.
Today's Highlight in History:
Two hundred years ago, on Jan.
1, 1808, a law prohibiting the
importation of slaves into the
United States went into effect.
On this date:
In 1863, President Lincoln
signed the Emancipation
Proclamation, declaring that slaves
in rebel states were free.
In 1901, the Commonwealth of
Australia was proclaimed. --
In 1953, country singer Hank
Williams, 29, died of heart failure
while en route to a concert date in
Canton, Ohio.
In 1959, Fidel Castro led Cuban
revolutionaries to victory over
Fulgencio Batista.
In 1984, the breakup of AT&T
took place as the telecommunica-
tions giant was divested of its 22
Bell System companies under
terms of an antitrust agreement.
In 1994, the North American
Free Trade Agreement went into
effect.
In 1997, Kofi Annan assumed
the title of United Nations secre-
tary-general.
In 1999, the euro, the new single
currency of 11 European countries
(later 13), officially came into exis-
tence with the start of the New Year.
Ten years ago: A new anti-
smoking law went into effect in
California, prohibiting people from
lighting up in bars.
Five years ago: More than two
dozen surgeons stopped working
in West Virginia to protest the high
cost of malpractice insurance.
One year ago: President Bush
and first lady Laura Bush joined
thousands of other mourners in
paying respects to former
President Ford.

Intestinal fortitude


Doctor an expert

on colon health
JoY GALLON
For the Chronicle k '.


January is not National
Colorectal Cancer
Awareness Month March
takes that honor. But any
month, even while you are
making merry and mulling
over the consequences of such
merriment, is a good month to
remember your colon.
Your colon? Who wants to think
about that body part? Even more,
who wants anyone else to know you
are thinking about it?
Dr Anil Ram of Gastroenterology
Associates (Crystal River and
Inverness) spends the better part of
each work day looking at the inside
of people's colons. He does this
during a procedure called a
"screening colonoscopy"
The way he does this is to insert
an endoscope (fiber-optic tube) into
the well-sedated patient's rectum,
advancing it all the way through
the colon (large intestine) to the
beginning of the small intestine. As
he pulls it out, he takes photos and
views the inside of the colon on a
TV monitor, looking for abnormali-
ties which he can take a sample
from for testing or remove entirely
Why would anyone in their right
mind and healthy to boot put
themselves through something like
this?
"The problem with waiting until
you actually have symptoms," says
Dr. Ram, "is that the patient has
already developed a cancer or an
obstruction. The goal of a
colonoscopy is to prevent some-
thing from happening, like a mam-
mogram or a PSA test (for prostate
cancer).
"Psychologically," says Dr Ram,
it is something people don't want to
think about, or they know someone
who did not like the prep, or had
pain in the procedure. They dis-
courage other people from having
it done. Men have more of a psy-
chological aversion to it and don't
want to have it done. However, I've
been in practice 15 years and I've
seen a major shift in people's
acceptance of colonoscopy for
screening purposes."
Dr. Ram says that in cases where
the procedure can't be done or the
patient refuses, a barium enema is
prescribed, and then a colonoscopy
may still be necessary afterward.
"Colonoscopy is the No. 1 cancer
screening and prevention proce-
dure," says Dr Ram, "that has actu-
ally been shown to essentially elim-
inate the chances of developing
colon or rectal cancer in a person's
lifetime if they follow recommend-
ed guidelines."
Dr. William Harrer of Citrus
Hematology and Oncology works
with patients who have been diag-
nosed with colon cancer. "When I
see them, they may get some CAT
(computed tomography) or PET
(positron emission tomography)
scans, liver function tests colon
cancer typically spreads to the
liver first and a CEA (carcinoem-
bryonic antigen) blood test
Patients ask, 'Isn't there a blood
test for this?' Well, only about 40

The colonoscope is a fiber-optic
tube about 1/2 inch wide (and long
enough to make the journey to the
small intestine, which is 3-plus feet)
and because you are sedated, you
hardly feel a thing.
The colonoscope provides a video
image, which is displayed on a TV
monitor so that the doctor can get a
very clear picture while he looks for
anything abnormal in your colon -
a growth, or some sort of change

New Year What is this hap-
piness that we all wish for
one another? Is there a hap-
piness secret?


The first definition of
happy in "Webster's New
World Dictionary" is to be
lucky, fortunate, or favored
by circumstances. Many peo-
ple agree, feeling that happi-
ness depends on luck, good
fortune, or a favorable align-
ment of the stars.


Dr. Ed

If so, "Happy New Year"
may simply mean wishing
good fortune to others, which seems a
reasonable wish. Yet, this definition
suggests that, like winning the lottery,
happiness is only the result of luck
Philosophers, as well as many others,


believe that happiness is more than
being smiled on by Lady Luck
A second definition of happy in the
dictionary is to have a feel-
ing of joy or contentment
W- i This broadens the concept

L ymphedema, or
swelling of the arm, is
a possible side effect
seen during the treatment of
breast cancer. Over the past
two decades, a lot of
progress had been made to
lower the risk of this side
effect by changes in the
treatment of breast cancer.
Now, research appears to
offer us another technique
to manage this side effect.
Weight loss through calorie
restriction appears to be an
effective way to reduce
breast cancer-associated
lymphedema of the arm.
Up until now, manage-
ment of lymphedema has
centered on skin care, exter-
nal support and compres-
sion, exercise and move-
ment, and simple lymphatic
drainage. This is the first
time that weight reduction
has been shown to influence
the size of a lymphedema-
tous arm in patients with
breast cancer.

awake. It was really bad
when I was pregnant.
Pregnancy and insomnia
are a terrible combination.
Anyway, my first pur-
chase over an infomercial
was about three years ago.
I bought "Billy Blanks Boot
Camp," which came with
four DVDs, elastic bands
and a free sample of his
miraculous energy vita-
mins. I am sure Mr. Blanks
is a great motivator for fit-

Patrick was in the military. He'd leave the right mood at home to exercise.
early in the morning and there I was: With all his kickboxing moves, I was


afraid I was going to chop one of the
dogs, or worse Emmy And Patrick
is not the least bit sympathetic. He
still makes fun of my wasteful pur-
chase.
For a while I cursed the infomer-
cial. But then something really cool
came along.
I noticed it a little more than a year
ago. At first, channel surfing, I would
politely stop for a few seconds to
watch, then move to the next station.
Then I began to watch the whole info-
mercial. Then, I looked up the reviews
online. Then, I really wanted one.
And for Christmas, guess what I got
The AeroGarden! For those of you


who don't know, the AeroGarden is an
indoor garden system where you can
grow your own herbs, lettuce, toma-
toes, strawberries and, for those who
have it down pretty well anything
you want. I got mine as a pre-
Christmas present from Patrick when
we found it at a chain store with a 20
percent off coupon.
When we got home, I planted the
seedpods and began watching it grow
(that was Nov. 25). Now I have basil,
purple basil, dill, thyme, parsley, mint
and chives. Plus, Emmy and I have
been watching the plants grow togeth-
er and she loves it.
Quite honestly, I love my


AeroGarden. I love cooking with it I
love that I have fresh herbs in my
kitchen. And I am even proud to say
now that it came from an infomercial.
Being a sucker (who's also an occa-
sional insomniac) isn't so bad after all.
And whatever or wherever your crazy
idea comes from, I hope it works for
you. Happy New Year!

Chantix may affect them.


Chantix is the second nicotine-free
smoking cessation drug available for
use since Zyban (bupropion) was
approved in 1997.
Most other drugs to stop smoking
are nicotine-replacement therapies
sold by prescription and over-the-
counter in gum, patch, lozenge, nasal
spray or inhaler dosage forms.
Chantix works in two ways to help
people stop smoking.
First of all, it reduces the pleasure
of smoking and, secondly, it lessens
the withdrawal symptoms that lead
smokers to light up again and again. It
does this by interacting with the same


receptors in the brain that nicotine
binds to when inhaled in cigarette
smoke.
This interaction with nicotine
receptors affects the release of a
chemical known as dopamine in the
pleasure centers of the brain, which
reduces the pleasure of smoking and
the craving to smoke that occurs when
the effect of nicotine wears off.

Treatment of postprostatectomy incontinence


Sostprostatectomy
incontinence (PPI)
after radical prosta-
tectomy (RP) is potentially
debilitating and has a
reported incidence of 5
percent to 20 percent.
Early therapy includes
pelvic muscle floor reha-
bilitation. When patients
have persistent, bother-
some urinary leakage
more than one year after
prostate removal, then
additional surgical therapy
should be considered.


Dr. Tom Stringer
^ 0 '1.6.Y


PPI can be caused by underlying
bladder dysfunction, sphincter mus-
cle dysfunction or a combination of
both. In most cases, a weak sphincter
muscle is the predominant deficiency
Following removal of the prostate,
urinary continence is maintained by
the remaining urethral sphincter.
Function of the residual sphincter is
dependent on muscle function, intact
soft tissue, supportive tissues and
preservation of nerve pathways.
Potential sources of dysfunction of
the urethral sphincter include scar-
ring and damage to the smooth mus-


cle. Both the length of the
urethra and the closing
pressure of the sphincter
can be adversely affected
by RP and can result in
incontinence.
There are no deter-
mined preoperative
anatomic or functional
parameters that will pre-
dict which patients are at
higher risk for PPI.
Therefore, surgical tech-
nique needs to be meticu-


lous in order to preserve
the integrity and maximum possible
length of the urethra.
While improved surgical tech-
niques to minimize damage to the
sphincter, supporting structures and
innervation have resulted in
decreased time to full continence, the
absolute continence rate at one year
remains the same.
The evaluation of the patient with
PPI begins with a detailed history. It
is important to quantify the severity of
leakage, including pad usage, as well
as the pattern and nature of the incon-
tinence episodes. The history of adju-
vant external beam radiotherapy


increases the probability of bladder
instability as a contributing cause for
incontinence. In most cases, cys-
toscopy and/or urodynamics will be
necessary to determine the exact
nature of the incontinence.
For patients with PPI requiring
three or fewer pads per day, injection
therapy is a viable treatment option.
The minimally invasive treatment for
PPI can be performed as an outpa-
tient using local anesthesia.
Continence is achieved by increasing
urethral resistance to opening with
increased abdominal pressure and by
improving urethral coaptation and
sealing.
The two FDA-approved injectable
agents most often used to treat PPI
are Contigen and Coaptite. Multiple
injections over a six-month period are
often required to achieve benefit and
subsequent periodic injections are
required to maintain benefit.
Because the postprostatectomy ure-
thra is often scarred, fibrotic and
asymmetric, injection technique is
critical. The agent is injected just
inside the sphincter at the bladder
neck. The ideal endpoint is when the
mucosal surfaces coapt.


In a recent study of 199 men, 49 per-
cent were overall dry or significantly
improved requiring a mean of 4.5 sep-
arate injections.
During the past few years, the male
sling has been gaining popularity. The
sling procedure allows for more phys-
iologic voiding postoperatively com-
pared to the artificial sphincter and
avoids the risk of mechanical mal-
function and sphincter component
erosion. Surgical options following
exposure of the perineal urethra
included the bone-anchored male
sling (InVance) or the transobturator
male sling (AdVance).
The most commonly used sling
materials are silicon-coated polyester
mesh typically used for hernia
repairs. Overall, 80 percent of
patients were either dry or much
improved following the sling proce-
dure. Patient selection is important,
and success is measurably better in
patients who use fewer than five to six
pads per day
The artificial urinary sphincter
(AUS) is widely accepted as the most
effective long-term treatment for PPI.
Early continence rates are greater
than 75 percent, and patient satisfac-


tion rates are close to 90 percent.
However, 17 percent to 35 percent of
patients will require re-operation
within five years.
Reasons for re-operation include
infection, scrotal hematoma, erosion
of the cuff, extrusion of tubing or
pump, mechanical failure and ure-
thral atrophy with inadequate ure-
thral compression by the cuff. The
AUS is an excellent treatment option
for patients with severe PPI.
No single surgical procedure is
appropriate for treatment of inconti-
nence in all patients.
Proper patient selection will leave
patients with mild incontinence to
consideration of injection therapy,
while those with more severe inconti-
nence will be considered for a male
sling procedure or the AUS implant
for initial therapy

"Colon cancer is preventa-

about eight years for a polyp to
progress to be an invasive can-

scopies and they remove the
polyp, that prevents the can-

Dr. Harrer says that in the
United States this year there
will be 157,000 new cases of
colon cancer, with an estimat-
ed 60,000 deaths due to the dis-
ease.
"There are steps the average
person can take to keep a
healthy colon," says Dr. Ram.

day and eat two servings of
fresh fruit daily especially

He takes a picture of whatev-
er he finds, good or bad,
removes the bad stuff, and
sends it off to be analyzed so
that he can tell you what it is.
Sometimes the news isn't good,
but the good part is that you
can do something about it if
you know what is going on with
your body.
The most difficult part of the
whole procedure is the prepa-
ration. This is a stumbling
block for some people for first-
time and repeat colonoscopies.
In order to be able to see the
wall of the colon clearly, the
intestines have to be purged of
everything. Some people (like
me) say this is only an uncom-
fortable step in the procedure,
and others find it pure hell,
with nausea, soreness, and
feeling terrible afterward.
These people say they will
never do this again; one friend
of mine likened it to the water-
board method of torture.
Preparation starts two nights
before the procedure. My doc-
tor told me to buy a little 10-
ounce bottle of magnesium cit-
rate. My grocery store sold it in
cherry (labeled as "delicious")
and lime flavors. I chose lime. I
chilled it in the fridge, and
drank it before bedtime. I am
extremely glad to say that I will
not be drinking that salty stuff
many more times in my life.
The next morning, the bowel
purge began. Step one was
over, and it wasn't unpleasant.
On the day before the proce-
dure, I was allowed to drink
only clear liquids. That meant
coffee, tea, soda, water, gelatin
(no red or purple), and broth
(chicken or beef). On this day
you get to lose weight, which is
a small bonus to the procedure.
I made green and yellow gela-
tin, drank two cans of broth, ate
more gelatin, and everything
else on the list. Since I like Jell-
O, this was a good idea for me.
This completed step two.

Dr Ram comments on impor-

colonoscopy: "The two big
things we have seen" he says,
"is that the diameter of the
scope is smaller than it used to
be, and the tip of the scope is
much more flexible. You can
manipulate it and you can
adjust the stiffness of the tip.

some people have a bad time
with this step. At this time in
the preparation, it is impera-
tive that you stay close to the
bathroom.
After adding the flavor pack
and a gallon of water to the jug
the pharmacist gave me, I
drank it with ice through a
straw (the straw seemed to
make it easier) one glass
every 10 minutes. It really did-
n't taste too bad, but a gallon is
a lot to put away in a few hours.
One hour into the gallon jug, I
started rushing to the bath-
room every 10 minutes or so.
By the time two hours had gone
by, I was done drinking. I sat on
the couch shivering (between
trips to the bathroom), holding
a microwaveable heating pad
and covered with a blanket. I
must have gone to the bath-
room 15 times, with the last few
times not being too productive,

For those who want to know:
Endoscopes can go into the
colon or the esophagus (either
end of the digestive tract).
However, the colonoscope is
about 1/2 inch thick, while the
one for the esophagus is nar-
rower smaller chance for a
mix-up.
The colonoscope has five
narrow channels in it so that
the doctor can not only view
the inside of the colon, but also
take biopsy samples. Two chan-
nels are for fiber optics to
provide light and to transmit a
movie of what the colonoscope

if you know what I mean. The
object is to achieve a clear
stool, with no solids.

remaining three channels are

Jodi Ringheisen and Angie
Ryan endoscopy technicians
at Gastroenterology Associates
- are sounding boards to
patients before and after the
procedure.
Ryan says patients' chief
complaints about the proce-
dure are hunger, thirst, tired-
ness and soreness.
"But it is important to be
screened," Ryan says. "For
people with first-time colono-
scopies, we say, 'It's a good
thing they came in here,'
because we catch things that if
they had been left in there
would be much worse."
Ringheisen says people
shouldn't believe the horror
stories they might hear
because the colonoscopy tech-
nique has come a long way.
"It is easier than most people
think," Ringheisen says.
"Colon cancer is a silent
killer and one of the symptoms
is bleeding. But if you don't
have the bleeding, most people
don't know they have it"

By the way, to facilitate view-
ing, the doctor blows air into
the colon through the colono-
scope to expand the walls of
the colon. You can guess what
happens afterward there is
"air passage" that could be a
little embarrassing. So it is
probably a good idea to go
home and stay there for a while
- alone after the proce-
dure.
The actual procedure was
merely a blink of the eye com-
pared to the preparation. All I
can say is, schedule yours first
thing in the morning so that
you don't have to go hungry for
very long or without your
coffee.
I am glad I had the
colonoscopy, because the doc-
tor discovered one polyp in my
colon and removed it. The
pathologist said it was negative
for cancer, but I know that even
if it was negative now, most
colon polyps turn malignant
further down the road.
So besides cleaning out my
intestines and losing a few
pounds I have circumvented
colon cancer and come away
with high-quality color photos
of the inside of my colon. Not
every one is so lucky!

'Walk-A-Weigh' program offered


Special to the Chronicle

"Walk-A-Weigh," a weight-control pro-
gram that emphasizes exercise, will be
offered by the University of Florida
/IFAS, Citrus County Extension office.
"Research has consistently shown
that long-term weight maintenance is
nearly impossible without exercise,"
according to Connie Crawley, nutrition
specialist with the UGA College of
Family and Consumer Sciences. "Also,
people who exercise are less likely to
develop chronic diseases such as dia-


betes, heart disease and high blood
pressure, and those with chronic dis-
eases find they're better able to control
their diseases if they exercise regular-
ly"
Beginning in January, we will host a
Walk-A-Weigh program that will be 12
weeks in length. This will be a morning
class, which will be from 10 a.m. to noon
Tuesday, Jan. 29, and will meet every
Tuesday until the last class on Tuesday,
April 15. Class will be at the Citrus
County Extension office, 3650 W
Sovereign Path, Suite 1, Lecanto. It will


be led by Monica Bonsett.
The cost of the class is $24 (check or
money order; no cash) per participant
and is limited to 30 people. Prepaid reg-
istration is required, and no refunds or
transfers to other classes will be given.
Medical releases and liability forms
plus payments must be turned in prior
to the first class. To register, call Cris at
527-5700. Registration for the class ends
Jan. 22.
All programs and related activities
sponsored for, or assisted by, the
Institute of Food and Agricultural


Sciences are open to all persons with

race, creed, color, religion, age, disabili-
ty, sex or sexual orientation, marital sta-

ing special accommodations, please

days prior to the program so that prop-
er consideration may be given to the

ing happiness? That seems to
be the hope for some people,
but others see something awry
with that picture. If drinking is
consistently used as a means to
find happiness, it might simply
mask deep-seated feelings of
insecurity or unhappiness. Is
there a better pathway to
enduring happiness?
What about happiness due to
great success? Does becoming
a star in the areas of sports,
movies or politics win personal
happiness? Does winning the
Lotto bring personal happi-
ness? Does material fortune
guarantee happiness? No.
Public reports from all these
arenas suggest that unhappi-
ness is as prevalent there as

known cause of voice deteriora-
tion. But did you know that den-
tal or jaw joint problems can
affect the musculature in the
neck and affect your voice as
well? The human voice is
extremely sensitive to endo-
crine changes such as thyroid
problems and menstrual irregu-
larity, as well as other hormonal
changes including menopause.
We all know that environ-
mental irritants, such as ciga-
rette smoke, have an effect on
one's voice. But did you ever
give any consideration for vari-
ous foods that can affect the
voice, such as milk products,
chocolate and caffeine, which
can aggravate acid reflux?

Currently we have technolo-
gy to measure the cells in the
blood. Current approaches use
complicated analytic tech-
niques including centrifug-
ing and washing samples -
that generate very low yield
and purity.
In contrast, their "micro flu-
idics" approach is highly sensi-
tive, has a 99 percent yield, and
a purity approaching 50 per-
cent, compared with less than 1
percent for other methods, the
researchers said.

What is the secret of endur-
ing, inner happiness? M.J.
Ryan writes that, "In a recent
study of happiness, it was
found that the number of good
or bad events that happened to
you is a poor predictor of hap-
piness. Rather, a better indica-
tor is the attitudes you hold
about these events, no matter
how many."
Oliver Wendell Holmes
wrote, "What lies behind us
and before us are tiny matters
compared to what lies within
us." Here is a vital clue.
The Bible tells us that our

juice and herbal teas are felt to
be beneficial for the voice.
Respiratory problems, such
as asthma, can affect the power
source of the voice and need to
be considered in some cases.
Medications that we routinely
use can have a significant
effect on the quality of a
singer's voice. These include
antihistamines to treat aller-
gies, diuretics, which are very
popular in treating blood pres-
sure problems, and hormonal
therapy, such as oral contra-
ceptives, which are also com-
monly used.
As an aside, it should be
noted that vitamin therapy,
though very popular, seems to
have little positive effect on the

use of illicit drugs, such as
cocaine, which is, unfortunate-

has a very deleterious effect on
voice quality.
The vocal mechanism is a
finely tuned, complex instru-

quently result in deleterious
alterations of the voice. And
fortunately, the majority is usu-

as well as a risk factor for poor
response to lymphedema treat-
ment.
To investigate whether
weight reduction might be of
benefit in such patients, the
researchers studied 21 women
with breast cancer-related arm
swelling. The median body
mass index (BMI) was 32. In
several of my recent articles, I
have discussed BMI, and 32
falls into the category of being
obese. The patients in this
study were randomized to
receive specific dietary advice
aimed at reducing their energy
intake by 1,000 kilogram calo-
ries per day or to simply
receive an information booklet
on healthy eating.
At 12 weeks, the intervention
group had lost a mean of 3.3
kilograms, their BMI was
reduced by a mean of 1.3, and
excess arm volume fell from 25
percent to 15 percent. There
were no changes in weight or

percent of the money goes for
workshops, arts and crafts and
educational training for devel-
opmentally disabled adults.
Irene Labarbara, Homo-
sassa, was the lucky person
whose ticket was drawn for a

out 2008, at least it's a very
good help. We're very appre-
ciative of everyone who donat-
ed and helped make the
fundraiser the success that it
was," Ron Philips, president of

be more successful in future
years so our organization can
be more effective for our grow-

base."
FFRA is a support group for
developmentally disabled


adults and their caregivers.
Emphasis is placed on provid-
ing information to members
about the many organizations

Legion Post 155 to throw party


December in Citrus was a
whirlwind of exciting
activities and spectacu-
lar entertainment We pause to
reflect upon and appreciate
the monumental efforts that
made the productions possible
by dedicated volun-
teers:
The opportunity
given to youngsters
by the Citrus County
Art Center Theatre
with the production ,
of Charles Dickens
classic novel "A
Christmas Carol"
adapted by Michael
A Young and direct- Ruth
ed by Sharon Harris AROUI
featuring actors COVi M
from 6 to 18 years old
... a marvelous learn-
ing experience at the
Halavan/Youth Theatre in
memory of Bill Halavan.
Thirty-five
children We pa
brought new
meaning and reflect I
personalized
insights to the apprec
time honored
phrases: "Bah monuI
Humbug!" and
"God Bless Us efft
Everyone!"
"Christ-
mas is the Best Time of the
Year" presented at the
Inverness United Methodist
Church featuring the church
choir, praise band, and signers.
It was a moving experience in
sight and sound of what makes
for good times featuring gui-
tarist Matt Bouthillier, Paul
Gosack and Randy Kinowitz,
drummer Milt Erwin and Betsy
Collins on flute, with narration
by Grant and Lynne Borst. With
selections from "Hark the
Herald Angels Sing" to my
favorite "God So Loved the
World," it was a perfected
musical delight on what
Christmas is all about.
The fabulous Key Center
production of Dr. Seuss's "How
the Grinch Stole Christmas." It
was a hoot from start to finish,
a laugh a minute, a superb
effort on the part of residents
and staff. Mirth flowed
throughout. It was a definite
toss up as to who enjoyed this
more, the spirited, enthusiastic
players or the appreciative
audience. Way to go Whos. We
came away with uplifted
hearts exiting the Chet Cole
Life Enrichment Center at the
Key.
Gulf Islands Civic
Theatre's new encore ensem-
ble's presentation of "Let It
Snow ... Somewhere Else: A
Citrus Christmas," produced,
written and narrated by Jeri
Augustine and staged at the
West Citrus Community Center.
We applaud this group's efforts


to fund local charities and
Portia Guinn, a deputy with the
sheriff's office and a board
member for Jessie's Place, was
on hand to tell us all about this
Children's Advocacy Center
that was the beneficiary of this
show. The show
starred a newcomer,
Kat Dobronyi; Jacki
Doxey, musical
director accompa-
nist and soloist;
Ashley Kisner, set
design; Hugh
Phillips; and the
fabulous Shier fami-
ly, Mike, Mickey,
Levins Chris and Brittany
ND THE Mike Tranchida was
JW a standout per-
former on trumpet.
The charm and wit
of Mike Shier endeared him to
the audience as we envisioned
ourselves in a cafe setting,
enjoying the
ruse to holiday with
comfortable
ipon and friends.
The show
late the was dedicated
to the memory
mental of Jim La
Guidice, who
)rts. was a dedicat-
ed member of
Gulf Islands
for 20 years.
The Citrus Community
Concert Choir's annual pro-
duction of George Fredreich
Handel's "The Messiah,"
directed by Jacki Doxey with
accompaniment by Harry
Hershey, trumpet solos by
Mike Tranchida, 15 sopranos, 8
altos, 5 tenors and 8 basses,
was a magnificent perform-
ance that enhances the lives of
all who attend. It is a special
gift given to the community lov-
ingly in praise and adoration.
The beautiful Christmas
Eve services at the Crystal
River United Methodist
Church in candlelight and with
communion reflecting upon
the birth of Jesus in the light-
ing of significant candles: the
prophet, Mary and Joseph,
shepherds, angels and the
Christ. Directed by Margaret
Williams with accompaniment
by Donna Olsen, and Jeremy
Neff and song leaders Cherly
Turman and Margaret
Williams.
The memory of Christmas
lingers of the darkened hall
filled with the hope of lasting
peace throughout the world in
our hearts.

Let's start the New Year off
with a BANG with Jim Moran's 1963
Chevrolet Corvette Convertible that
Jim restored to original condition over
the past thirteen years. Jim explained
he has done most of the work himself,
and he likes doing his own work. Jim
even painted the car himself! For me
that's rather remarkable, because this
'63 Vet is something special. As Jim
says, "Real Eye Candy."
Jim is a member of the
National Corvette Restorers Society,
and our Local Citrus County Cruisers
auto club. He loves to show his car but
enjoys driving it as well. Case in point
- Jim recently returned from a
National Corvette Restorers Society
show held in Boston. What Jim is
proud of is the fact that he placed so
well winning the National Top Flight
Award, and also the fact he drove the
car to the show. That's a lot of miles
on the road for an original, restored
Corvette by any stretch of the
imagination. When you have as much
time, and money into a restoration,
most people trailer their restored
vehicles. However, Jim continues to
drive to all his shows. Hey Jim, the


Florida Winter Regional will be held
in Kissimmee Florida January 9th
through the 12th. That ride should be a
piece of cake.
The National Corvette
Restorers Society is a non-profit
hobby group of about 15,000+
families dedicated to the restoration,
preservation, history and enjoyment of
Corvettes made from the model years
1953 through 1993.
Jim is known, and also has
won awards, as a judge within the
National Corvette Society circle. He
tried to explain the judging process to

I. my self Jim went on to say, "Half th


me. It is very comprehensive, and a
very serious process. I will do my best.
Here goes. First of all, a Corvette that
will be judged starts off with a clean
slate of 4500 points. One or two point
deductions will be subtracted each
time the five groups of two judges
happen to notice something wrong, or


out of place. A Corvette receiving less
than a 270-point deduction, will be
awarded the Top Flight Award which
represents 94% to 100% original.
That's the whole point to be 100%
original.
There are nine
other awards besides Top
Flight. However, the most
prestigious awards are
Performance Verification
Award for the Corvette
that is just the way it left
the factory, and the
Duntow/Mclellen is the
highest award for a
restored Corvette.
Jim explained,
"My dad always worked
on his own cars and that
got my interest up. I
learned a lot pumping gas back in the
fifties. The owner of the station where
I worked was an Al mechanic and I
learned a lot. The only way I can own
a Corvette is that I am able to fix them





--


fun is looking for just me ngnt parts
to put it together. It's like a quest, and
when you find a certain part that may
be extremely hard to find you feel real
good about it, especially if you get the
part at a good price. You have to
know what you're looking for.
Half the fun is going to flea
markets or auto parts meets and
finding what you or someone else
needs." Jim walked over to a shelf in
his garage, reached up and pulled


down a large glass jar, and proceeded
to show me a bunch of, what appeared
to me as, old gas caps. True, however,
these were gas caps for old corvettes.
One in particular he bought at a flea
market for five dollars and sold it on
E-bay for $357.92. Like Jim said,
"Half the fun is looking for just the
right parts that you or someone else
might need."
I had a hard time
understanding the reply that Jim wrote
to the question on the questionnaire as
to what he might do with his Corvette
in the future. He wrote he might sell it
and get another project car. It's a lot
of fun to build and then drive them.
He also plugged the local car
club by saying, Saturday nights at the
Citrus County Cruisers at Wendy's in
Crystal River always has a lot of neat
cars to look over.
Maybe you're a restoration
enthusiast and have some stories or
memories to share. Perhaps you own a
muscle, or classic car that is your
pride and joy. Are you a car club
member who would like to share your
story'? Feel free to e-mail Brian A.
I3isson at
bbisson@ chronicleonline.com.
We would love to get some
pictures and stories in our Wheels
section so you can sit back and enjoy
the ride down Memory Lane

CITRus COUNTY (FL) CHRONIC ___ TUESDAY, JANUARY 1, 2008 7D


The biggest RV


show of the year


WHO: Recreation vehicle
(RV) owners from nearly every
state and province are expected.
Attendance is expected to be
around 4,500 RVs which accounts
for about 10,000 people at the
event each day. Many from the
greater central Georgia area are
expected to attend each day on
day passes.
WHAT: The Rally (formerly
called the Great North American
RV Rally) is an annual event host-
ed by the Good Sam Club,
Camping World President's Club,
Coast to Coast Resorts, Camp
Club USA, Woodall's and Trailer
Life and MotorHome magazines.
All the organizations are owned
by Affinity Group Inc., which is
headquartered in Ventura, Calif.
WHERE: The Rally 2008 will
be at the Georgia National
Fairgrounds & Agricenter. The
Rally moves to a different part of
the United States each year. Past
sites have been:
A Redmond, Oregon, 2007
A Daytona, Florida, 2006
A Redmond, Oregon, 2005
A Hutchinson, Kansas, 2004
A Louisville, Kentucky, 2003
A Pomona, California, 2002
A Perry, Georgia, 2001
A Gillette, Wyoming, 2000
WHEN: The 2008 Rally will
be held Mlarch 14 17, 2008,
though commercial exhibits will
begin setup on March 11 th and the
early birds (people who have reg-
istered for an extra night or two of
parking) will begin arriving on the
S-12th. Attendees will vacate the
facility by the morning of March
18, 2008.
-WHY: Why hold such a big
Rally? RV rallies have been
around for about 30 years, though
they appeal to various segments
of the RVing world. Some are
only for motorhomes; others are
for a particular model from a man-
ufacturer (such as Airstream) so
there really wasn't an all-comers
RV Rally. By uniting the interests
of the various RV organizations
involved, and by featuring the
most comprehensive seminar pro-
gram and exhibits, ours has quick-
ly grown.
HOW: People learned about
the Rally primary] through sto-
ris-- and .adierirnieifts' in
Highways, Coast to Coast, Trailer
Life, MotorHome, RV View,
CamperWays, Northeast
Outdoors, Midwest RV Traveler,
Southern RV Traveler and Florida
RV Traveler. Together these publi-
cations reach nearly 3 million
people each month. Many regis-


tered on the Rally's website at
www.therally.com.
PARKING: Rally attendees
are sent confirmation packages
before the event that contain an
assigned parking lot and entry
point. When they arrive, a volun-
teer parking crew directs them to
their specific spot (depending on
what type of parking option they
selected). The base price of $149
(two people in a rig, dry camping)
includes admission to all seminars
and exhibits, the various club or
publication day activities and the
evening entertainment. Day pass-
es are available for $10 per per-
son. People who want to attend
the Rally without their RV and
stay for the entertainment may
purchase a Rally Passport for $69
per person, which is good March
13 17, 2008.

Unique

Attractions
at the Rally

DOG SHOW:
A majority of RV owners travel
with pets, dogs being the most
popular. So why not have a dog
show? This year's show will be
held on Saturday, March 15 at the
Day Stage and is expected to draw
dozens of dogs, plus hundreds of
people watching in the grand-
stands, as dogs (and their owners)
compete in numerous categories,
with prizes to the winners.

SEMINARS:
There are more than 30 semi-
nars scheduled for each day
beginning on the 13th, all of
which are free to registered atten-
dees of the Rally (not including
Day Pass holders). There will be
seminars on places to go, on
healthy cooking and there will
even be an expert on hand to help
spouses communicate better
while living in an RV. Among the
other seminar topics are:
A Campground safety
A Cell phones and
mobile communications
A Computers
A Dinghy towing
A En,'ine perform.ince
A Exterior and intenor
cleaning and maintenance
A Financial planning
A Hitches and towing

alized license-plate frames and
nametags to tow bars, jewelry
and clothing. Beyond those will

display from some of the leading
manufacturers and dealers in the
United States. The Rally offers a
unique opportunity to compare
nearly every make and model in
one location, as well as take test-
drives.

OPTIONAL TOURS:
Since most people attending the
Rally are not from Georgia, the
Rally offers optional tours that
showcase some of the best attrac-
tions of the region.

exhibits at the Rally, the online
area has been expanded to accom-
modate the growing number of

RV Info

TERMS:
Recreation vehicles, or RVs,
comprise a whole family of vehi-
cles that combine transportation
and temporary living quarters for
recreation, camping and travel.
Some provide a simple place for
sleeping and eating, while others
are virtually luxury lodges on
wheels. Conveniences range from
the basics like running water,
cooking and bathroom facilities,
and a power source (either elec-
tricity or liquid propane) to
added comforts such as air condi-
tioning, entertainment systems
and slideout rooms. See the
attached page for variations of
motorhomes, trailers and truck
campers.

CAMPING VARIATIONS:
There is some variation in the
way Rally attendees are camping.
Most RVs have the ability to plug
into water and/or electricity,
though most sites at the Rally did-
n't offer those. Those camping
without hookups (water, electric
and sewer) are "dry camping" or
"boondocking." Those using elec-
tricity being provided have "par-
tial hookups." Full hookups,
which includes connections to
water, electricity and sewer, were
not available at this event.
