An official for Tarmac America LLC
said Friday approximately one-third of
the rock trucks leaving its proposed
9,000-acre limestone mine in south
Levy County would travel south on U.S.
19 through Crystal River.
Al Townsend, director of real estate
and environmental services, said the
Tarmac King Road Mine will generate
500 truck trips per day.
"It could be 30 to 40 percent," said
Townsend. "We're still studying some of
that."

ber of permits :., it. That's

be delivered
to sites in the
greater Gainesville-Ocala area, north-
east Orlando and the northern Tampa
area including Pasco and Sumter coun-
ties, he said.
We've said up to a 100-mile radius,
Townsend said.
About 4,800-acres of the 9,000-acre
mine will be used for mining. The
remainder is set aside for conservation
purposes.
Levy County Development Services
Director Rob Corbitt said Townsend is
"sugar coating" the number of truck
trips for the media when he says 500.
He said each of those 500 trucks leaves
and comes back to the site daily.
'That's 1,000 per day, about 40 trucks
per hour," Corbitt said. "Every truck
leaves and comes back in."
Townsend said the confusion about
whether the Tarmac mine would gener-
ate 1,000 truck trips was probably his
fault. He said he estimated 1,000 truck
trips per day based on a double shift,
but because the operating hours of the
mine won't allow that number, the num-
ber will be 500 trips.

The Cattle Barons' Ball


Chronicle
Grab your finest Western
duds, polish your boots and dis-
cover one of the liveliest parties
in Citrus County. Businesses
and residents turn out in record
numbers to participate in the
American Cancer Society's
Cattle Barons' Ball, a foot-
stomping, kick-up-your-heels
gala that raises money for the
fight against cancer
This unique event, which
originated in Texas more than
20 years ago, has been branded
as one this county's most suc-
cessful fundraisers, as well as
an evening of unexpected
hoopin' and hollering, all in the
spirit ofroping in those dollars
for this community's personal
fight against cancer.
"People in Citrus County
understand the importance of
this event," said chairman Jane
Tessmer, estimating that more
than 400 will be in attendance.
"A lot of people work to make


this a successful event because
It is so important to so many
right here in our community."
The 2008 Cattle Barons' Ball
begins 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9,
at the Rock Crusher Canyon
Pavilion. This is a new venue
for the gala, a decision that was
made due to the increase in
activities and participants.
This year's steak dinner will be
provided by Texas Cattle Co.
Citrus County's American
Cancer Society costimunity
Representative Bruce
Garrison said that tables and
tickets are still available but
should be reserved soon by
calling 637-5577 or 302-1726.
Silent, live auctions and spe-
cial drawings will take place
during the evening, with every-
thing from unique art offerings
and fishing trips to fine jewelry
and autographed sports memo-
* rabilia.
"The community has been
tremendously supportive and
generous in their contribu-


tions," said Neale Brennan,
chairman of this year's auction.
"And also very creative. You
will definitely see things up for
bid that you don't usually see in
traditional auctions."
Contributions from local
artists have been outstanding,
she said, noting donations fmm
Delores Witt, Lorna Jean,
Jennifer Ardolino, artists from
the Natum Coast True Fine Art
Show, and even Romeo and
Juliet, the famed painting horses.
Guests will also be surprised
to find such items up for bid as
a doll house, sky box at a sports
event, vacations, a bicycle-built
for two, golf excursions, Vera
Bradley luggage, dog obedience
classes, guitar lessons and even
a rare antique bull emasculatory
Many items will be poignant
reminders of the reason for this
fundraiser; such as a quilt hand-
made from Relay for Life t-shirts,
the official Brighton bmast can-
cer awareness necklace and ear-
rings, certificates for mammo-

with the assumption; what if
we had double shifts, so I
had 1,000 trucks per day," he
said.
Corbitt said Tarmac offi-
cials, when speaking at one
public hearing on the mine,
said 70 percent of the trucks
leaving the mine would head
north on U.S. 19 and 30 per-
cent south, so he said
Townsend's estimate is about
right.
Quality
limeStOH9
Townsend said the mine
has enough high-grade lime-
stone to operate for loo
years. The mine would pro-
duce the type of limestone
the Florida Department of
Transportation needs to
manufacture concrete for
bridges and highways. The
mine would be FDOT certi
fled.
Corbitt said the FDOT has
made no effort to lobby for
the mine nor have any state
legislators.
The mine would be north
of Inglis and about a quarter
mile north of the site where
Progress Energy has pro-
posed building two nuclear
power plants on the east side
of U.S. 19. The mine traffic
and Progress Energy traffic
would empty into the same
stretch of U.S. 19 from oppo-
site sides of the highway.
Townsend said Tarmac
representatives have had
preliminary talks with
Progress Energy because
both companies would gene1
ate traffic. However,
Townsend said most of
Progress Energy's traffic
would come twice a day as


employees arrived and left
01e plant.
Corbitt said he doesn't
have any issue with the tral
fic from (he mine H< -said
U.S. 19 has enough capaulty
to handle the traffic from the
limestone mine. His issue is
water quality
"My concern is the same as
the citizens," Corbitt said. "If
they can substantially prove
to the county commission
that the mine won't cause
saltwater intrusion, or
impact wells; that's my only
problem."
Corbitt said he under-
stands the concerns of resi-
dents in Yankeetown and
Inglis.
"Nobody wants desaiina-
tion in Inglis and
Yankeetown, he said.
Valentino attends

Citrus county Commission
Chairwoman Joyce Valentino
attended a Wednesday night
meeting of the organization,
Withlacoochee Area
Residents (WA.R.1 which is
getting involved in the
Tarmac mine issues. She said
she wanted to get a sense of
what concerns the organize.
tion has about the mine. She
also wanted to know what the
impacts might be in < lieus

State Forest area anct she
has been in contact with
them about then concerns


Edward Michaels has been
tasked to handle the issue for
the organization.
-our essential concern is
watec It also goes to wetlands,"
besaid.
Townsend estimated Tarmac
would be protecting about 800
acres of existing wetlands at
the site.
He said the mining opera-
tions would lower the aquifer
about an inch, but he said the
mine can't impact the neigh-
boring wetlands.
"If we were to draw down
water, the wetlands would die
and the trees would die," he
said. "We can't do that."
Townsend said Tarmac has
plenty of hurdles to cross
before it can operate the mine.
He said it needs a consumptive
water use permit from the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District, and
environmental resource per-
mit from the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection, a 404B permit from
the U.S. Corps of Engineers
and it must produce an envi-
conmental impact statement
for the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency. It also
needs a special exception per-
mit from the Levy County
Commission,
He said Tarmac has already
received two special excep-
tions fi'om the county. The first
permit allowed the company to
conduct blasting and digging
tests at a test pit at the site. The
second allowed the company to
spread material in a dry area
for storage of its dragline. The
bucket of the massive dragline
holds 75 to 90 cubic yards of
material.
He said biologists for the
company have already spent
more than 12,000 hours at the
site. The property, owned by
Plum Creek Timberline LLC,
consists primarily of cutover
pine tree plantations.

last few years of Florida's real
estate boom, a boom that has
since collapsed.
Those citizens had watched
local government benefit by
the windfall of higher revenues
in the past couple years, and
caught between higher taxes,
rising impact fees, and higher
hurricane insurance rates
demanded relief.
Some of the groups support-
ing the amendment include the
Associated Industries of
Florida, Florida Association of
Realtors, Florida Chamber of
Commerce, Florida Medical
Association, Florida Outdoor
Advertising Association,
Florida Retail Federation, and
National Federation of
Independent Business support
it.
Groups opposing it include
The American Federation of
Labor and Congress of
Industrial Organizations (AFL-
CIO), American Federation of
State, County and Municipal
Employees, Association of
Community Organizations for
Reform Now (ACORN), Florida
Association of Counties,

TRus CouNn (FL) CmfoNicu,

Here's what you need to know
about the fax relief amend-
men t
: If it passes, will I get more
homestead exemption?
: Yes, homeowners with
Homestead exemption will get
an additional $25,000 home-
stead exemption on the 3rd
$25,000 in assessed value of
their homesteaded property.
samples: Property assessed at
$50,000 would get a $25,000
exemption. Property assessed
at $150,000 would get
$50,000 in exemptions.
So; if I have a home with
$150,000 assessed value, I will
get twice the exemption?
No. The exemption does not
apply to School board taxes,
which make up about almost
$0 percent of Citrus County
property taxes. That means the
rnt second exam
homestead exemption, corn-
pared to what he gets now it
would be somewhat less.
Would I keep my Save Our
Homes tax cap if the amend
ment passes?
Yes, it remains in effect. The
change is that protection accu
emulated under the cap would
be transferable. If the owner of
a homesteaded property that
had accumulated protection
from the 3 percent cap protect
tion over one or more years
bought another home that qual.
Wied for hlS homestead, he
could then apply that level of
cap protection to the new
home's assessed value
It only apples for up to
$500,000 of assessed value or
the onginal home, however. If
the new home is of less
assessed value than the old, the
ro onwacmulatedlor
ed for the lesser assessed value
of the new home.
: And what happens if it doesn't
pass?
The tax exemptions remain as
they are now. The Save Our
Homes cap remains as it is,
and the $25,000 homestead
prnption remains as it Is.
: uld businesses get a break

: Yes. Businesses would be able
(0 claim exemption for
$25,000 of tangible property.
They now have to pay a tangl-
ble property tax on equipment
they own and use for Iheir busi-


nesses will be allowed to claim
a $25,000 exemption on the
taxes they pay on equipment
they own and use. That is called
the tangible property tax.
The fourth clement of the
amendment is that tax assess-
ment increases on non-home-
steaded property would be
capped at 10 percent annually.
That would include second
homes and commercial proper-
ty It does not apply to school
district taxes and would sunset
on Jan. 1, 2019, unless renewed
by voters in 2018.
Opponents have raised a
number of questions about the
proposal. Local government
representatives and state asso-
ciations for cities, counties,
and various employees have
opposed the measure saying
such reductions in tax revenue
could have severe conse-
quences on government servic-
es and infrastructure projects.
Citrus would stand to lose
about $13 million the first year;
between the county commis-
sion, school board (which
accounts for almost half a
homeowner's tax bill) and spe-
cial tax districts.
The commission budget
could lose $6.4 million, the first
year, County commissioner
Vicki Phillips said last week,
$7.1 million the next, $8.1 mil-
lion the next, $9.4 million in the
fourth year and finally $10.3
million in the 2012-13 fiscal


year budget.
Another objection is that the
current disparity between
taxes paid by homeowners
Under the cap for years and
those who have recently
bought homes will only be per-
petuated. Fluther, they say, the
tax expert the legislature hired
to do a report on taxes warned
any tax reform that included
portability of the tax cap would
almost certainly get challenged
in court and he felt was vulner-
able to being thrown out.
Further, opponents say, the
amendment does not specify
that if one part of the bill is
found unconstitutional, the
rest still stands. So the oppo-
nents ask what happens if the
whole amendment is put in
limbo and then if it gets thrown
out.
Critics say the amendment
was thrown together hastily in
special session to give angry
taxpayers something, but it was
done with no thought to conse-
quences.
It has its supporters, on the
other hand, led by no less than
Florida Gov Charlie Crist. He
who promised tax relief when
he was running for office after
listening to homeowners and
businesses upset over rising
taxes due to the escalating
value of their properties m the


nesses. This applies to all prop-
erty taxes.
Q: What about property taxes on
non-homesteaded property?
A: The amendment would put a
10 percent annual cap on
assessed value of non-home-
steaded property, which
includes second homes and
commercial property. This does
not apply, however, to school
board taxes.
Q: Is there a downside to passage
of the amendment?
A: There are two big concerns
about the amendment from
those who oppose it. First, local
government representatives
from counties and cities warn
that the reduction in revenues
could mean serious cutbacks
in services and projects.
A: Second, opponents fear the
amendment will be challen
courtdas to its sfItuotiona i-
some taxpayers in the portabili.
ty clause.
Q: If it passes, when would it take
effect?
A: It would take effect immediate-
ly, retroactively applied starting
Jan. 1, 2008.
Q: Finally, does the amendment
prohibit locaLgovernments
from raising taxes to make up
for lost revenue?
A: No, and court challenges
aside, it could get even more
complicated. Some opponents
warn the amendment does not
address the rollback rate, the
tax rate it would take in a given
year to raise the same amount
in taxes as the previous year.
That's where government by
law has to begin its budget
planning and mileage setting
each year, at the rollback rate,

values, that to get to the roll-
back rate governments could

Second, homeowners with
homestead exemptions would
be able to take the accumulated
tax protection they have gotten
under the Save Our Homes tax
cap with them to another home-
steaded home. That would
apply only up to $500,000 in the
original home's value, however.
This proposal is called the
"portability" part of the amend-
ment, and refers to the trans-
ference of the tax cap that
homeowners have had on their
assessed values each year
under Save Our Homes. That
1992 constitutional amendment
put a 3 percent annual cap on
assessment increases on home-
steaded property.
That cap, which the home-
owner may have enjoyed for a
number. of years, could be
transferred under the pro-
posed amendment meaning
a homeowner would be paying
less, depending on how long he
has been under the cap, than
someone just buying the same
house for the first time.
For homeowners who sell
their homes and buy a house of
less value than the one they've
owned under the cap, the new
cap will be prorated for the dif-
ference in value.
The third part of the pro-
posed amendment is that busi-

Rachel Frances Channell
Dunn, 53, died at home sur-
rounded by her loving fami-
ly on January 11, 2008, after
a long and courageous bat-
tle with cancer. Visitation
will be Sunday, January 13,
2008 from 2:00 p.m.-4 p.m. at
National Funeral Home in
Clarksdale, Mississippi.
Following a private family
service, a celebration of her
life will be held at Oakhurst
Baptist Church on Monday,
January 14, 2008 at 2:00 p.m.
Rachel was born in Milton,
Florida on July 27, 1954, to
the late Rev. Tommy and
Mabel Channell. Rachel
graduated with a degree in
Business, from Mississippi
College in 1976, where she
met and married Pete
Dunn, her husband of 31
years. In addition to her
husband, Rachel is survived
by three children; sons;
Matthew Dunn of
Robinsonville, Mason Dunn
and his wife Kate of
Clarksdale and daughter,
Melissa-Miles Dunn also of
Clarksdale. She is survived
bMy ne granddaught brroM
much joy to "Lovie's" life.
She leaves two sisters,
Lydia Jones of Hazlehurst
and Sarah Blackwell of
Oxford; two brothers, Tim


Channel and John
Channel of Inverness,
Florida and Mother-in-law,
Billie Lynn Dunn of
Clarksdale. She will be
dearly missed by her special
lunch group of friends of 20
years. After being a stay at
home mom with her chil-
dren, Rachel went back to
college and earned a
Master's degree in
Community Counseling
from Delta State University.
She was a member of the
Mississippi Board of
Certified Counselors.
It is a special life when a
person's occupation fits in
so exactly as their personal-
ity. Rachel was born to be a
counselor and helper She
was the most charming
manner in which to put her
clients at ease and found
creative ways to help them
with their daily problems.
She spent many years work-
ing with what she consid-
ered to be the greatest
group of people she has
known, her co-workers at
Region I Mental Health
CR I was a person
through which God gifted
many talents. She was a
master seamstress and had
a natural flair for decorat-
ing. Through Rachel's


trained eyes, many discard-
ed items were collected,
changed and adapted to
become beautiful and
unusual works of art. Her
love of antiques led her to
own and operate
"Distinctively Dunn"
antique business for several
years.
Having being raised as a
daughter of a Baptist minis-
ter, Rachel never forgot her
Christian values. She was a
long time member and
teacher at Oakhurst Baptist
Church.
The Dunn family would like
to thank the physicians and
staff of the University
Medical Center, Jackson,
Mississippi, for the splendid
care of Rachel. In addition,
words cannot express how
grateful we are to the citi-
zens of Clarksdale and the
surrounding community for
their continuing thoughts
and prayers for our family. A
special thanks to Rachel's
final care-givers, Joyce
Handely, Jeanette Stokes
and Debra Nalls.

be made to the American
Cancer Society or Oakhurst
Baptist Church.
"Thank you Lord, for every-
thing."

Special to the Chronicle
in August, James Buckingham of Dunnellon took a trip to Colorado to do some mountain climbing near Denver on the
Continental.Divide. Buckingham and Ron Borho, his uncle, succeeded in making it to the summit of two peaks Grays Peak
vtilth an elevation of 14,278 feet and Torreys Peak with an elevation of 14,274 feet. Above, Buckingham is on the summit of
Grays Peak, far above the clouds. During their ascent, it snowed, rained and sleeted. Temperatures were below freezing.

When traveling, we often
attempt to stay in places that
will make our trip more mem-
orable. In Stockholm,
Sweden, we found one of ..
those opportunities,
We had read that there
was a luxury yacht moored
at the quay in Gamla Stan,
better known as "Old
Town," Stockholm. Worth a
look.
"The world's richest
heiress" was given a 236-
foot yacht, the largest pri- Neil S
vate yacht in the world at SPONT
that time, on her 19th birth- TOUR
day. A $1,000,000 check was
under her breakfast napkin
on her 21st birthday Where would a
parent get that kind of money in 1930?
From the "Five & Dime" stores, of
course!
As we approached the Malardrott-
ningen, Barbara Hutton's yacht, given
to her by her father, Frank Woolworth,
founder of Woolworth's, we were
shocked at its size, as we had antici-


pated something a bit more modest.
After checking in, we toured our new
"home" and marvelled at the mahogany
trimmed in brass that was 1
used extensively from stem .
to stern, and the amenities
particularly impressive
for a boat built in the 1920s.
The memorabilia and pic-
tures of her reign as the
"poor little rich girl," as she
was known, added a his-
toric view of her fascinat-
ing life.
awyer We were ushered to the
NEOUS Captain's Bar in the old
GUIDE wheelhouse for a welcome
drink, well deserved after
many hours of travel by .
plane, train and automobile. The view
of the waterfront, several bridges in
the distance and the beautiful pastel
buildings was a rewarding preview of
what we would be experiencing for the Special to the Chronicle
next several days. Shown is a typical residential street in Gamia Stan
Our first dinner in Stockholm was on Old Town where buildings date back to
1600-1700s. Gamla Stan was the original settle-

VETERANS NtEWS


C`ITRU(LS COUNTY (FL) CHi(oNictI.I


As we enter 2008, it is time to
reflect on what we as veterans
have accomplished during
2007 in our continuing
service to our country and
Our community, and to
look forward to what our *,
goals are for the future.
Even though many of us .
were drafted into the serv-
ice of our country, most
volunteered, and we all
served with honor. Upon ;
discharge or retirement,
many found their way into Larry M
a veterans organization
and continue to serve. For VETE
more than 200 years, we VI
have been comrades in
arms during all the con-
flicts, and that brotherhood and sis-
terhood will continue until we have
given all we can give.
Recently, in this monthly column, I
borrowed a quote from an unknown
author in defining a veteran as "a per-
sons whether active duty, retired,
national guard, or reserve is some-
one who, at one point in his or her life,
wrote a blank check made payable to
the United States of America, in the
amount of 'up to and including their
life."' That commitment doesn't end
with our departure from the active
duty ranks. We still have that obliga-
tion to serve and represent our
branch of service, the conflicts we


served in, fellow disabled veterans,
POWs or an organization that best
represents what you believe in sup-
porting.
Veterans of Foreign Wars
posts 4252 and 7122 contin-
ue their service to country
and community on a regu-
lar basis with donations
from their fundraisers.
American Legion posts 77,

Voiture 1219, Blind Veter-
ans Association, Fleet
acMillan Reserve Citrus Branch 186,
Korean War Veterans
RAN'S Association Chapter 192,
EHf Marine Corps League,
Military Order of Purple
Heart Aaron Weaver
Chapter 776 and Veterans Foundation,
just to mention a few, are all doing
their partto support their organization
and local veterans. The Citrus County
Veterans Coalition, in cooperation
with these member groups and refer-
rals through the Citrus County
Veterans Service Office has provided
needy veterans' families with Veterans
Food Pantry assistance, adult and chil-
dren's clothing, furniture and funds
through the Veterans Foundation to
get them back on their feet. We have
coordinated our efforts to improve and
lobby for veterans' benefits and med-
ical care through national, state, coun-
ty and city representatives.


Unfortunately, Citrus County has
seen its share of losses during the
global war on terrorism. Several local
buildings have been named in their
memory These same organizations
had representatives at their memorial
services with full military honors for
these heroes who gave their all. They
also visit those who are in nursing
homes and hospitals and providing
rides to medical appointments for
those without transportation and
serve the homeless veterans.
Another blessing to Citrus County
has been the Welcome Home a Hero
Project in support of troops coming
back from tours in Iraq and
Afghanistan. To date, Barbara Mills,
VFW Post 4272 and Auxiliary, local
merchants and many of these same
veterans organizations have wel-
comed 26 military personnel who call
Citrus County home. Mills and
Assistant Coordinator Jay Conti, with
the American Legion, have formally
welcomed the local heroes home with
a goodies basket that contained gifts,
gift certificates, gift cards, local and
national restaurant gift cards and
admissions to amusement parks and
entertainment facilities. Many of
these returnees will be redeployed
for a second and third time. Let's face
it, these are our veterans of the future,
and I am sure they will commit to con-
tinuing their support to their commu-
nity on their return to civilian life


and, hopefully, get involved with and
become active in a local veterans
organization.
As we move into 2008, it is a pleas-
ure to welcome home Pfe. Michael

come you to our fraternity of military
organizations.
In a long-term commitment to our
returning veterans, the Citrus County
Veterans Coalition is asking for your
support of the Veterans Re-Education
Project. Many of our military person-
nel return to an entirely different way
of life from what they left and need
assistance in making the transition
fi'om military life to civilian life. This


is a long-term project that may even-
tually provide educational assistance,
living quarters, medical assistance
and transportation for these return-
ing veterans.
In cooperation with Withlacoochee
Technical Institute, the CCVC will
sponsor a benefit yard sale/flea mar-
ket the first Saturday monthly in the
WTI parking lot. Veterans organiza-
tions, church groups, civic clubs, PTA
groups, flea market vendors or indi-
viduals can reserve 10-foot-by-20-foot
spaces for the next event scheduled
for 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 2 by calling
Richard Floyd at 726-5031, Col. M.J.
O'Brien at 726-9062 or Joel Smoyer at
726-4429. Spaces are available on a.
first-come, first-served basis at $10
per space. Proceeds from this event
go to benefit Citrus County Veterans.
On behalf of all the veterans organ-
izations, may I wish you and yours a
happy and prosperous New Year, and -
may 2008 be the most beneficial year
of "Veterans Helping Veterans" be-
cause you saw fit to become an active
part of that effort. Thanks to all of you
who did support this effort in 2007.

Around the county, conunu-
nity groups, local businesses,
service organizations, clubs,
schools and faith groups are
pulling together to welcome
the veterans home from the
ongoing war on terrorism.
They're donating money, call-
ing cards, items from their
stores, providing dinners and
gift certificates to enhance a
well-deserved heroes' wel-
come home to the returning
Citrus County veterans.
The soldiers, airman,
Marines and sailors on leave
from the war zone, have items
and gift certificates to help
with the burden of bills that
face them when they return.
And in Citrus County, veterans
themselves some of them
old-timers have organized to
provide a comradely ear as dif-
ficult experiences are related.
All of this was made possible in
2007 by Mills and her welcome
home committee. In 2007, one
returning local veteran said
when he received a $100 Wal-
Mart gift card in his basket that
was donated by the Fleet
Reserve Association, "Now, I

On Feb. 22 to 24, we are ask-
ing the help of all Citrus
County veterans organizations,
faith groups, schools, Young
Marines, Boy Scouts, Girl
Scouts and any other team to
pull together for a countrywide
fundraiser to help Mills and
her committee to raise enough
money and gifts so the Citrus
County welcome Home
Baskets will continue again in
20018. The Citrus County
Heroes Group (www.Citrus
CountyHeroes.org) has set up a
special fund, for donations of
items, gift cards, money and
other items.

like to donate, we do accept

Special to the Chronicle
Withthe2007yearbehindus,
we have to look at what tran-
spired with all the Citrus
County Veterans welcome
home parties as it wouldn't
have been possible without the
dedication and hard work of
Citrus County Realtor Barbara
Mills. Mills' zealous dedication
to the Veterans Welcome Home
Basket program, Veterans Day
parade and Inverness
Christmas parade were second
to none. This was evident with
the results of the Heroes
Welcome Home program, her
floats in the Citrus County
Veterans parade and Inverness
Christmas parade.
In the eyes of many critics,
the war in Iraq has become a
quagmire reminiscent of the
Vietnam situation. But as the
nation marked the fifth
Veterans Day since the U.S.-led
invasion, the two lengthy and
controversial conflicts are very
different in one crucial way.
This time, combat vets are
being welcomed back by
Americans of all political per-
suasions with open arms.

Meeting Barbara Hutton to
say "thank you" would have
been proper, but she died in
1972 a short while after she
gave her yacht to the Royal
Navy. The Malardrottningen
was eventually purchased by a
private individual and taken
from Panama to Stockholm
where it operates as an inter-
esting hotel for those who want
something a bit different from
the norm. You'll feel as if
you're the guest of this leg-
endary icon of extravagance.

Neil Sawyer is a 22year
Crystal River resident and
businessman. He and his wife,
Karyn, are extensive travelers,
venturing to foreign countries
two to three times a year in
addition to taking several
domestic excursions annually.


The Mllalardrottningen is tied up at Gamia Stan, Stockholm,

the beach as any first-timer
fears, I could sit back and
relax.
When you paraglide, you're
sitting down, so it feels like,
you're riding through the sky in
a recliner with a bird's-eye
view. Sea gulls flew within spit-
ting distance, as did the hand-
ful of other paragliders enjoy-
ing the day's blue sky and light
breeze.
We spent the next half-hour
floating back and forth above
the sandy cliff at ocean's edge,
looking down upon sprawling
multimillion-dollar mansions'
the beach, Torrey Pines golf
course, the Lodge at Torrey
Pines and the Torrey Pines
State Reserve.
I was staying at the lodge, a

low end. Appointed like a well-
staffed, sprawling Greene and
Greene mansion, the grounds
include a croquet course, pool,
hot tub, spa and two restau-
rants, besides the famous golf
grounds.
After I checked in, the near-
by trails beckoned. The State
Reserve is within walking dis-
tance of the lodge. A short
jaunt on the sidewalk abutting
the golf course yields to a
series of sandy trails detouring
inland, taking me on a 2 1/2-
mile loop past the native chap-
arral, down to the beach and
back again. It was just in time
for dinner at the lodge's in-
house grill.
The salmon and wild mush-

delicious post-flight, without

strapped on my helmet but
before I stepped into my har-
ness, which was connected to
his harness, thus combining us
into a single flying entity. It
wasn't exactly comforting, but I
guess that's what you get when
you reveal your lily liver to a
seasoned daredevil.
with the two of us hooked
together with carabiners,
Robin briefed me on how we'd
take flight. He'd count to three,
we'd run toward the edge ofthe
cliff, and then we'd step off. As
promised, he counted to three,
but we didn't run forward. The
wind was pushing us back.
Robin counted again, and
this time we moved in the right
direction. We were just moving
like some sort of ultra-klutz
comedy team as we stumbled,
giving the wind a chance to fill
our parasail and fly us up and
over the edge. I heard the flap
of the canopy, then silence as
we floated away.
Once we were flying and not

It was on this knoll that I met
Robin Marien, the pilot who
would captain my ride. Being
more of a land-loving type, I
asked Robin the usual newbie
questions and received
answers he has no doubt given
hundreds, if not thousands, of
times in the 10 years he's been

Me: How long have you been

Stockholm is home to many
churches and museums, but
may be best known for the

HISTORY
Today is Sunday, Jan. 13, the
13th day of 2008. There are 353
days left in the year.
Today's Highlight in History:
On Jan. 13, 1794, President
George Washington approved a
measure adding two stars and two
stripes to the American flag, follow-
ing the admission of Vermont and

"J'accuse," was published in Paris.
asie's9 o it nZdu ,t

db3ir ndh on
10 days befom hh 43rd birthday
in 1982, an Air Florida 737

14th Street Bridge after takeoff and
fell into the Potomac River, killing a
total of 78 people.
In 1990, L. Douglas Wilder of
Virginia became the nation's first
elected black govemor as he took
the oath of office in Richmond.
In 2002, the off-Broadway musi-
cal "The Fantasticks" finished its
original run of nearly 42 years and
17,162 shows.
Ten years ago: Linda Tripp
wore a hidden microphone for the
FBI and recorded a conversation
with former White House intern

Thought for Today: "There are
periods when the principles of
experience need to be modified,
when hope and trust and instinct
claim a share with prudence in the
guidance of affairs, when, in truth,
to dare is the highest wisdom."-
William Ellery Channing, American
clergyman (1780-1842).

Not so long ago, my sweetheart and

were already seated at a table a short

the federal tax code.
Seventeen thousand pages
in length, it is incompre- #
sensible, corrupt and inef-

The Fair Tax, H.R. 25 and
S. 25, is the best hope I've
seen for improving the tax Dr.

code. It eliminates all taxes Di
on any income, individual OT
and corporate; abolishes VOI
Social Security and
Medicare taxes; abolishes
estate taxes and does away with most
of the IRS.
It replaces all these taxes with a
national sales tax that is collected by
retail merchants (like Wal-Mart or the
local Chevy dealer) and people who
provide services such as doctors,
lawyers and accountants.


There is no tax on used
goods no matter who sells
them. The sales tax is cal-
culated to give the federal
government the same rev

enues as it had, no more,
no less. It replaces the

Pass the

I'm voting 'yes'
Citrus County voters will
join fellow Floridians
on Jan. 29 to select the
nominees for both of the major
political parties. At the same
time, voters will be asked to
cast their votes on a constitu-
tional amendment designed to
reform Florida's unfair prop-
erty taxes.
The constitutional amend-
ment is poorly worded, politi-
cally motivated, incredibly
complex and just plain awful.
(Did I mention that it really
doesn't effectively address the
real root of the unfairness in
Florida's property tax?)
With all that said, I'm still
going to vote in favor of it.
Supporting this amendment
is like using an extra dose of
pepper to help make your pos-
sum stew taste better. No mat-

to eat something.
The amendment will do four
basic things in an attempt to
reform the property tax sys-
tem. It increases the home-
stead exemption for homeown-

school taxes; it creates a
degree of tax portability for

Fol low one




r ig ht dec ision


with another


economy.
At this point what is needed is
incentive, not disincentive. And
so at this point the issue has
moved from the empirical to the
political. Political decisions
can't be made in a vacuum,
granted, but the commissioners
have cut bait and cut bait and cut
bait. It's time to fish.
The apparent deep philosophi-
cal differences between mem-
bers of the commission about
growth translated into a lack of
clear ideas about what a study
would/should do, and that divi-
sion has been allowed to muddle
the issue long enough. So forgo-
ing this study is wise, and not
doing the study means that the
commissioners can assuming
they have the political grit do
something right away and not
wait any longer before taking
action. Any change will already
have to wait 90 days before going
into effect.
There is a critical need to find
a balance between paying for
improvement to infrastructure
and strangling growth. The
downturn in the economy has
exacerbated that need and cre-
ated its own circumstance that
demands a response as soon as
possible. .
It's time to make some dect-
sions.

made the right decision
not to spend $51,000 of
taxpayers' money on a study that
would have no local information
in it. -

much impact fees
are stifling local Right de
business. They have solution s
a meeting later this
month during which they are
scheduled to consider rolling
back fees for a limited period.
It doesn't take a genius to see,
without benefit of a study, that
there are some parts of the
impact fee schedule that should
be changed. That's because the
fees in some cases are so high
that they are an obvious disin-
Epn(ive to growth and specifical-
ly hamper local small business-
es' ability to grow.
It would seem that the commis-
sion could use common sense in
some of these cases and come up
with a better way to do it, a way
designed at least not to inhibit
small businesses. Granted, the
numbers of an impact fee sched-
ule have to be consistent, sup-
portable and non-discriminatory,
but if the fees are adopted at a
lower level than recommended
by the consultant, then they are
surely at least supportable.
So it will be up to commission-
ers, supported by staff and coun-
sel, to be fair and consistent
within categories and protect
the schedule from being thrown
out by legal challenge but if
that means some across-the-
board reductions, then commis-
sioners need to be ready to con-
sider some form of that, which
was the proposal for the meeting
late this month,

I urge everyone to watch the
movie "Sicko." I think you're going
to get a big surprise. It's not about
people without health insurance.
It's about people that do have
health insurance. I think you'll be
surprised to find out that almost
every other country has universal
health care. And we are supposed
be the best country in this world?
No way. Watch the movie and find
out.

I just read a letter to the editor
that said that secular humanism is
a religion. Nothing could be further

COMMENTARY


CITTUrS COUlNTY (I;I.) CHRONICLE


The sponsors claim many
other advantages for the Fair
Tax such as a marked growth
in our economy, lower inter-
est rates, increase in exports
and return of some jobs lost
overseas. They also claim to
collect taxes from the
"underground economy,"
criminals, illegals and for-
eign visitors, all lost under
the current system.
This sounds "too good to be
true." After hours of
research, I believe the bene-
fits just may be real. Eighty
prominent academic and pri-
vate economists have signed
an open letter to Congress
and the president verifying
the economic numbers and

Instead, your tax bill is deter-
mined by how long you've lived
in your house.
A guy living for 15 years in a
$1 million Black Diamond
home with a wife, three kids
and two cars can have a small-
er property tax bill than a sin-
gle guy who purchased a
$250,000 Citrus Hills condo in
2006. Who has the more valu-
able assets? Who demands the
most services from local gov-
ernment? It doesn't matter.
The state's Save Our Homes
amendment limits the
assessed value increases of a
home to just 3 percent a year.
New people can move into our
county and they get walloped


of sense. To generalize, their
concern which I share is
that grandparents often end
up raising grandchildren

parents often don't make rais-
ing children, let along mar-
riage, a priority. Big-screen
TVs, cell phones, nice vehicles
- high priorities; personal
responsibility low priority.


supporting passage of the
Fair Tax.
Many critics have not
researched Fair Tax, (colum-
nists, talking heads and some
congressmen) or benefit from
the current tax code.
Lobbyists and insiders, tax
lawyers and accountants who
make a living distorting the
taxes fear for their jobs. They
label the Fair Tax as the
work of fools, false and mis-
leading. Yet, former Federal
Reserve governors Wayne
Angell and Robert McTeer
support it. These financial
experts are fools?
Some say it puts the poor at
a disadvantage while benefit-
ting the "rich." Not true, and

with a tax bill based on the
current assessed value of their
home.
It is arrogant and selfish for
us to charge a higher rate of
property taxes to people who
have recently discovered our
state. I can't believe that it's
not unconstitutional.
Can you imagine if we had a
2-cent sales tax supplement for
everyone who lived in the
county for less than two years?
"Oh, you're a newcomer -
well you get to pay another 2
percent for that television set.
It comes with a nice cup of pos-
sum stew."
The unfairness has blos-
somed over the last six years


a Continuing my practice of
seeing bands and musical
artists who were popular in
my youth (I swear, AARP is
missing out on concert spon-
sorship opportunities), Neale
and I saw the band Poco at the
Largo Cultural Center last
weekend. It was a blast
The venue only seated about
500 people and had nice, cush-


more of the usual class war-
fare. The numbers work out
in favor of the poor while the
upper middle class actually
pays more than they do today.
Government tax experts
claim the tax would have to
be substantially larger than
23 percent and that tax
cheating would be a bigger
problem.
Boston University tax
expert Laurence Kotlikoff
ran the data and points out
the many errors distorting
the government analysis. Its
broader base easily over-
comes the effects of cheating.
It is in our interest to learn
more about the Fair Tax. For
info, log on to FairTax.org or

as the assessed value of prop-
erty and homes in Citrus
County has skyrocketed. One
family can live in the same
model house, on the same
street, as another family and
end up paying 100 percent
more in property taxes,
That's just not fair.
No one in this debate has
gotten to the root of the prob-
lem local government
spends too much money and
the politicians think they have
a birthright to just keep on
spending.
The reforms in the Jan. 29
ballot tinker with the problem,
but they don't fix it No one
anticipated that the Save Our


ioned seats. That's a lot more
relaxing than going to a stadi-
um with 35,000 people.
We got to meet the band

the sale price of a product or
30 percent if it is added to
the pre-tax price. They also
show that the price of any
product or service we buy
now is increased by the cost
of taxes paid by manufactur-
ers or service providers,
somewhere between 20 to 25
percent. The national sales
tax replaces those "imbed-
ded" taxes so the price of the
product remains about the
same. Plus, we all have more
money to spend as we are not

and it creates a 10 percent cap
on assessment increases for
those properties that are not
covered by the homestead
exemption.
This is just pepper in the
possum stew when the real
issue is that we need another
kind of stew.
Florida's property tax sys-
tem is just not fair. The size of
your property tax bill is not
based on the services you
demand or the size and value
of the honfe you live in.

Business Women's Alliance (BWA)
Many of you have heard about us or have attended one of our.
many fUnCtiOns throughout 2007. BWA is an alliance formed under
the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce. Let me share with you that
Our mission statement is to support, develop and promote all women
through education, mentoring, information exchange, partnerships
and alliances with other organizations and by promoting opportunities
for all women in Citrus County. Many functions are being developed
for the year 2008, including our very successful penny harvest cam-
paign, our networking luncheons, and the Health Expo. Our network-
ing luncheons were very well received in 2007 and it is the hope of
every BWA member that you and your business benefited from those
luncheons and will continue in 2008 to support the luncheons. The
Health Expo was very successful and touched many women in Citrus
County with helpful information regarding health issues. Another
Health Expo is on the drawing board for the fall of 2008. The penny
harvest raised in excess of $2,000 during 2007 for the benefit of the
young ladies at Camp E-Nini-Hassee located in Floral City, Florida.
We will continue to assist these young ladies with our support and our
donations. As we move forward into 2008, the members of BWA wish
each and everyone a very happy healthy New Year and we look for-
ward to having the business women of Citrus County join us at one or
all of our functions.

Happy New Year! Now that
we're over the holiday
"hump" and have our virtual
feet firmly planted in 2008
it's time to start thinking
about the upcoming 2nd
annual Technology Expo
hosted by Citrus IT Alliance!
It's hard to believe that
we're only seven short weeks
away from the big event, and
even though Feb. 22 is right
around the corner, we still
have Sponsor and Exhibitor
opportunities available. Our
goal is to have a full-house
and we're hoping to have
your support this year!
The Technology Expo is
the perfect opportunity to
showcase your business and
technology. Exhibitors will
be representing:
a Technology used in our
everyday lives both at work
(computers, phone systems,


ID/access cards) and at home
(alarm systems, surround
sound, smart wiring).
m Proactive ways to pre-
vent information/equipment
loss (offsite servers/storage,
surge protectors, genera-
tors).
a Disaster recovery activi-
ties (EMS, EOC, fire, police).
Our marketing efforts will
be directed toward business-
es throughout Citrus and its
five surrounding counties -
Marion, Levy, Hernando,
Pasco and Hillsborough. In
addition to mailings and
posting flyers in various
businesses, we'll be placing
ads in the local newspapers
and circulars. We will also be
working through the Tampa
Bay Technology Forum and
Florida High Tech Corridor,
our strategic partners, to
ensure we tap into the vari-


ous businesses in Hernando'
Pasco and Hillsborough
counties.
Since the expo is a cooper-
ative effort between CITA
and the EDC's
Disaster/Recovery team we
feel that many businesses
will be interested in attend-
ing to learn about the
resources available to not
only assist in business conti-
nuity efforts in the event of a
disaster, but how to proac-
tively reduce and/or prevent
loss.
Please contact our commit-
tee chairwoman Deb
Gardner events(<0citrusital
liance.net for further infor-
mation. The deadline for
Exhibitors is January 25th so
don't delay! Additional infor-
mation can be found at

The reverse holds true as well.
The less control you exert, the

However most government

avoid setting a pattern of daily
or weekly work hours dictated
by your business. Compensate
contractors on a per-job basis,
not weekly or monthly. Do not
include them under any insur-
ance or benefit packages you
provide your employees.
Contractors are paid to com-
plete a task and may bring in
others to help, at their discre-
tion and on their payroll.
Independent contractors should
also use their own tools and
technology and be responsible
for any incremental expenses.
Contractors do not usually have


a permanent relationship with a
business and have time to pur-
sue other clients.
To the employer, there are
financial incentives to using out-
side contractors. Employers do
not have to withhold taxes, pay
payroll taxes, pay worker's
compensation, or offer benefits.
There is not the paperwork or
expense of keeping track of
employee's earnings. But be
sure when you use independ-
ent contractors that they are
just that independent. There
is a huge downside to misclassi-
fying your employees as inde-
pendent contractors. In addition
to the IRS levying fines and
interest, the state usually fol-
lows the IRS with their own
fines.
If that were not enough, the
independent contractors you
paid can later claim they should
really have been treated and
paid as employees. They have


the ability to ask the IRS for a
determination whether or not
they have been misclassified as
independent contractors. A rul-
ing against you not only brings
the IRS to you but also opens the
worker to file lawsuits under
federal and state labor laws.
Although there is no con-
crete definition of an inde-
pendent contractor, there are a
variety of factors to consider.
Be sure you are aware of them
when you decide whether
someone working for you is an
independent contractor or an
employee.
For help with the independ-
ent contractor question, call
SCORE at (352) 621-0775. The
knowledgeable counselors at
SCORE are available to offer
free advice. They will help you
with this or any other business
problems or objectives.
I'm Kenneth Parrott wishing
you a great month in business.

checklist of factors they use in
determining the proper classifi-
cation of employees or inde-
pendent contractors. Howevell
the checklist focuses on three
main factors: how much control
does the employer have over the
worker's behavior and work
results, the relationship
between the parties, and how
much control the employers
have over the finances.
Independent contractors
operate their own businesses
and work for themselves. You
are their client. not their
employer. Contractors control
when and where they work. You
do not control the training, what
time they work or how they per-
form their work. The more con-

Local health care
providers win contest
Healthy Start is pleased to
announce the winners of the sec-
ond quarter Results Campaign, a
contest that encoura es ho itals
and OB/GYN offices to successful-
ly screen pregnant women and
infants for health risks. Citrus
Memorial Health Services in
Inverness is the winning hospital
with 98.84 percent screening of the
172 babies born from September
to November, (th also won the
contest last quarter with 100 per-
cent infant screening). Bella Donna
OB/GYN, a new office serving
women from all counties at 1194
Mariner Blvd. in Spring Hill is the
prenatal screening winner.
Welcome to Dr. Donna Bennett,
M.D. F.A.C.O.G and her associ-
ates, especially with recognition for
100 percent prenatal screening.
Dawn Easter, Healthy Start
Community Liaison for Citrus and
Hernando counties said, "The
Healthy StartProgram was created
by the Florida Legislature in 1991
to support women in having health-
ier pregnancies and healthier
hphies end has hoon more rs'nHn


the state, where Florida's infant
mortality rate has dropped 18 per-
cent since the program began. We
are encouraged by increased
screening rates statewide but are
still working toward 100 percent.
The latest statistics from November
2007 show that Florida healthcare
providers are screening 62 percent
of their pregnant clients and 81
percent of all infants born for
potential health risks. We're mak-
ing a difference one person at a
time."
Healthy Start is a free program
sewing women and children up to
age 3 to maximize health, well-
being and self-sufficiency. The aim
is to improve pregnancy outcomes
and child health through universal
risk screening and targeted servic-
es. By completing the risk assess-
ment form, it helps keep the pro-
gram available to all who need it,
We're working to ensure that every
baby in Florida has a Healthy Start.

Healthy Baby Hotline, (800) 451-
2229 or your local Healthy Start
office in Citrus county at 726-1731.
