it's actually a consolidation, as the five
banks are owned by George H. Brannen
II, his brother Joseph S. Brannen, and
their sister, Margaret Hagar.
That kind of ownership in itself is a
rarity, as there are few family owned
banks in the state anymore. The
Brannen's father, George H. Brannen
Sr., founded the family bank in
Homosassa Springs 82 years ago in 1926
when there were only 6,000 people liv-

Inverness in 1929.

On Tuesday, Jan. 29, voters will go to,
the polls and vote on an amendment to
the state constitution which proposes
property tax relief, in addition to cast-
ing their ballots in the Republican and
Democratic voter preferences in their
d
paMrty presidential primaries,
co sion an angst has arisen
over the tax amendment
The amount of the reduction of taxes
for property owners varies, depending on
the property and particularly if it's home-
steaded. So for properly owning voters,
the question is, "What's in it for me?"
Like everything in life that at first
seems simple, there are consequences
and thus a controversy over the amend-
ment, not to mention confusion on the
part of voters.


a The amendment would increase the present $25,000
homestead exemption by also exempting the assessed value
between $50,000 and $75,000 on a home. This second
exemption, however, doesn't apply to the school district por.
tion of property taxes,
a Also, the amendment would allow the transfer of accumu-
lated Save-Our-Homes benefits for homestead property
owners. They could transfer their benefit to a new home-
stead within 1 year and not more than 2 years after relin-
quishing their previous homestead (starting in 2008,
though, with a 2007 sale). If the new homestead has a
higher value than the old one, the accumulated benefit can
be transferred; if the new homestead has a lower just value,


the benefit transferred is reduced proportionally. The trans-
ferred benefit can't exceed $500,000. It applies to all taxes.
5 In addition, the amendment would allow an exemption
from $25,000 of assessed value of tangible personal prop.
erty. This applies to all taxes, including business equipment
and sheds or carports attached to mobile homes on leased
property.
a Finally, the amendment would limit the assessment increase
for real property that is not entitled to the homestead
exemption to 10 percent each year. This includes commer-
cial property and second homes. This limitation doesn't
apply to the school district portion of property taxes.


There are four categories of redue-
tions. Homesteaded homeowners would
be the big winners in the amendment,
though non-homesteaded property own-
ers get a little bit of protection- a 10 per-
cent cap on assessments in a given year

At 8:06 a.m. Saturday, a mechanical problem in a vehicle, which was in the garage at 1120 S. Waterview Drive in inverness, caused a fire, resulting in smoke
and heat damage to the interior of the house, according to Citrus County Fire Rescue spokeswoman Patty Jefferson. No one was injured in the fire. The car was
totaled and a small room next to the garage was destroyed. Jefferson said the owner backed out of the garage, noticed smoke coming from the car, pulled back
into the garage, then went inside her home. Neighbors noticed smoke coming from the garage and realized the car was on fire; they alerted the owner and helped
her out of the house, Jefferson said.

We are researching an investigational
dosing schedule of an approved
contraceptive that could give you
freedom from your monthly periods.

We are looking for healthy female volunteers to
participate in a clinical research study of an
investigational dosing schedule of an approved oral
contraceptive (OC). The purpose of the study is to
see if women can safely and effectively extend the
time between their periods by continuously taking
the OC for up to 120 days instead of the approved
28-day dosing cycle. Taking the OC for 120 days
continuously is considered investigational.

You may be eligible to participate if you are healthy
and 18-35 years old.

Study participation lasts for 1 year. Qualifying
volunteers can expect (8) study clinic visits. All
study-related office visits, medical evaluations, and
oral conceptives will be provided to qualified
participants at no cost.

The owner of the Three
Sisters property in Crystal
River, Three sisters Holdings
LLC, has created a Web site
explaining what is planned for
the approximate 60 acres,
which has been named Crystal
Springs.
The project is a blend of sin-
gle-and multi-family homes sit-


nation around Lake Linda, a
lake in roughly the middle of
the 60-acre site.
The group said on its Web
site that it has approval from
Crystal River to build 69 single-
family homes, each on about a
third acre. Those homes will
ring the waterfront, according
to the plan. The Web site noted
that by rights, the owners could
develop 100 more housing


units on the site.
The plan includes 240 multi-
family units set back from the
springs and surrounding the
lake on the property. "The proj-
ect will offer residents
unprecedented access to the
springs," the Web site said.
On a FAQs page, the site said
the development is moving
though the normal permitting
process, which involves exten-


sive study beyond the springs.
Wetlands on the property will be
surveyed and included in envi-
ronmental buffers, the site said
and added, "In short, until all
permits are acquired, we'll con-
tinue to maintain the property
and consider alternative uses."
One alternative suggested by
others is that the state buy the
property, or the city and a coali-
tion of funding sources buy it.


The FAQs page also said in
regard to "other plans for the
site:" "We have applied for
renewal of a Water Use Permit
to take water from the lake for
bottling. We're very early in
this process."
The owner said that as the
project progresses, more infor-
mation will be added to the
Web site, which is
www.3SistersSprings.com.

With the change, for exam-
ple, each bank won't have to
have its own standalone per-
sonnel structure, its own licens-
es, its own data recording and
reporting systems, individual
relationships with vendors or
individual memberships in
business and industry associa-
tions.
While the consolidation will
mean some elimination of jobs,
George Brannen, chairman of
the bank, and brother Joe
Brannen, vice president, said
in an interview last week that
the bank will use retirements
and attrition and not any layoffs
to right-size staff complement.
Any employees who get dis-
placed will have the opportuni-
ty to be cross-trained or
retrained for other positions,
they said.
George Brannen expects that
the consolidation of services of
the five smaller banks into one
will tend to speed up customer
service in some ways, while giv-
ing the bank a $460 million con-
certed regional presence with
12 offices in three counties,
"We're going to step up to the
level our competition is operat-
ing at," he said, referring to the
large bank chains that have
located offices in Citrus County
in recent years.
The consolidation will also
help in marketing the bank's
image and services with one
message of its long tradition
and what it offers, Joe Brannen
said.
In a time when it seems
there's a bank on every corner,
said George, "All that will make
us leaner and more competi-
tive." While the economic times
dictated the change, the histor-
ical relationship between the
Brannen banks and their cus-
tomers will not change, he said.
And making the change, he
said, gives the new bank a
chance to tell the Brannen
story to all those who have
come here recently and don't
know its history, which is a key
to its character. He said that in
a day when every bank branch
tries to claim it is a "communi-
ty bank," and all banks pretty

"And when you call us, you
get a real person," George
interjected.
The Brannens have seen an
enormous amount of change
during their lives in the Citrus
County they grew up in, but
they've never resented it "You
eitherchangewithitorgetout
of the way," George said.
With its continuing growth
and location away from the
urban areas but close enough
for the benefits, they see Citrus
as a good place to live and do
business. Being a retirement
community, it has a fairly stable
income base and is somewhat
insulated from extreme swings
of the economy.
And with the baby-boomer
generation just starting to
retire and the extension of the
Suncoast Parkway linking
Tampa Bay with Citrus antici-
pated in the coming years,
both the Brannens see a
bright future for both the
county and the family bank
that has served it so long.

BAN
Continued from Page 1A

It was the only bank of four
that survived the Crash of 1929
and it remained the only bank
in Citrus County for 40 years
after that.
With the proliferation of
banks trying to get a foothold in
the county these days, and in a
time when the economy is in a
downturn, consolidating the
banks only made sense to the
Brannens. The economy of
scale can be a powerful tool in
business administration, and
Joe and George Brannen both
admit they probably should
have consolidated sooner, but
their father had created the
banks in a time before branch-
es were allowed and each bank
office had to have a separate
charter. Always the conserva-
tive company, they had been
reluctant to change something
he built that had worked well
through the years.
Actually, the company had
already consolidated its loan
processing department and
bookkeeping services through
its facility in Hernando, but
now everything will be com-
bined into one operation.
Brannen Banks of Florida,
the holding company for the
banks, is currently sending out
letters to all the banks' cus-
tomers of the consolidation and
the name change. The company
is telling customers that aside
from the name change, there
will be nothing that changes for
them in the way they deal with
their bank.
They will be able to use their
checks and accounts just like
they always have. When they
need new checks, the new
name will be reflected. Their
account numbers will not
change. For them it will be a
seamless change though the
bank is doing an enormous
amount of work behind the
scenes to effect the change.
For instance, consider just
the infrastructure, electronics
and computer logistics of rout-
ing everything into one system
and into the Inverness office,
which will serve as the central
headquarters for the bank's 11
branches.
On the other hand, said vice
president of marketing and
business development Jane
Tessmer who has been over-
seeing that effort-just the say-
ings of time and money in one
consolidated report to state and
federal regulators each day will
be considerable.

much offer the same products
and services, the consolidation
gives them the chance to
explain why theirs is the real
hometown bank of Citrus
County.
The Brannen sons said their
father was an extremely con-
servativebanker Hisbanksur-
vived through the Great
Depression. He had seen peo-
ple not able to get their money
out of banks in the Crash of
1929. He had vowed that would
never happen to his customers.
And that's how he taught his
sons to bank conservatively.
They started in the bank as
youths and he was a harsh
taskmaster Safety and sound-
ness were the bywords. "He
pounded that into us," Joe said.
The senior Brannen warned his
sons early: "You can't borrow
yourself out of debt."
The bank has never gotten
into "speculative interests"
George said. "Our daddy stood
on our heads and didn't let us
do that sort of thing," George
said shaking his head. "He
taught us to be very patient."
The brothers acknowledge .
the bank's conservative nature


made it slow to embrace new
technologies such as comput-
ers, then ATMs and then online
banking, but that's its nature, an
old-fashioned bank.
George chuckled and said it
took them a good while to final-
ly go to online banking and then
when they did, they paid a lot
extra for extra firewalls simply
because they are so conserva-
tive.
As for the hometown part of
it, he quipped that there are
very few banks today where a
customer can ask to speak to the
chairman of the board of the
whole company and talk to
him in an office off the bank's
lobby.
Though conservative in lend-
ing, the bank has always had
fast turnaround times on loans.
"We review and we approve all
the loans," Joe said. "We follow
the same practices as our dad
taught us."
The bank was fortunate, he
said, that many of the newcom-
ers who began to retire in Citrus
in the 1960s and 1970s who
came to the bank were solid
people from up north. Retiring
with a good pension after 30 or


40yearsforexamplef\'omGM,
they were the kind who could
pay for a car or even their house
outright, but who wanted to
have some mortgage. That's a
loan you are never going to
worry about, he said.
Their model is admittedly a
littledifferentfromotherbanks,
Joe said. They were not the
computer model of the average
bank today, he said, and eventu-
ally the regulators agreed with
his brother and even held the
bank out as an example of
sound conservative banking.
"It's been successful for going
on 82 years," Joe said. "We
won't change the fundamen-
tals."
Since their father's time, the
brothers say, the culture of the
bank has been to do business
the way they would want to be
treated. "That's been our cul-
ture since daddy ran the busi-
ness. It's real personalized
service" more than a smile
and simply remembering a
name Joe said.

and Sharron Rosenberg, cap-
tains of the Castle Pines Loop
team, also obtained 100 percent
participation from their neigh-
bors in the friendly fundraiser
challenge, Conway said.
The captains stood on the
newly planted lawn at the
Kenyons residence with other
Black Diamond community
members, some of whom helped
construct the house.
Inside the house, a sideshow
presentation displayed pictures
of HFHCC volunteers in action
during the past few months.
Many donated their time and
money, including members of
the Salvation Army Church in
Homosassa; members of the
First Presbyterian Church in
Crystal River; members of local
service clubs such as Interact
and Rotary; future HFHCC
homeowners who are required
to volunteer 250 hours of their
time, called "sweat equity,"
before the groundbreaking of
theirhomes;thosewhositonthe
BoardofDirectorsforHFHCC;
representatives ofPublix Super
Markets Inc.; local retirees; and
various other community mem-


bers who individually volun-
teered or worked on behalf of
charitable organizations and
local businesses. Kenyon said
there were usually about 40 peo-
ple working on the house per
scheduled workday
Even Kenyon's young children
pitched in. All three said they
enjoyed laying the sod.
After the groundbreaking cer-
emony, future Habitat home-
owners are required to complete
an additional 250 hours of labor
at their own homes. Kenyon
described the experience as
"furi" and talked about the
friendships she forged with the
many people who helped make
her dream come true. The road
to Kenyon's dream for her chil-
dren was full of obstacles.
"During the building of the
house, I lost my uncle and you
guys pulled me through, thank
you," Kenyon, said in a speech to
the supporters at the ceremony.
She plans to build a bench for
the house in memory of her
uncle, Charlie Moore.
Before the groundbreaking in
September, Kenyon's mother;
also a Habitat homeowner; suf-
fered a stroke while helping
Kenyon achieve "sweat equity"
hours; she underwent heart sur-
gery and is now doing well,
Kenyon said.
The house was built by the
compassionate hands of county-
wide community members and
signiflesanewbeginningforthe
family.
"Ibday is about transforming
your lives,"Peterson said.

Some point
out that it will
take money from the schools.
Gov. Charlie Crist, who sup-
ports the amendment,
unveiled the education por-
tion of his budget in
Tallahassee last week, and he
said he was putting that
money back in with the budg-
et he submits to the legisla-
ture.
Some members of the legis-
lature, which drafts and pass-
es the budget, said don't
count on that, however.
Democratic House Minority
Leader Dan Gelber of Miami
last week accused Crist of
unveiling his education budg-

Florida Taxation and Budget
Reform Commission is now
in the process of coming up
with recommendations and
it ought to have that chance
before such a measure is
passed.

amendment include The

Special to the Chronicle
Traveling to Ireland was the dream vacation for Paul and PJ Cooper of Roral City. One of the
many highlights was visiting an ancient monastery in Glendalough, Ireland. The arch, walkway
and wall are original, dating back to between the seventh and ninth centuries. No mortar was
used; the stones were cut precisely to fit. The Coopers were amazed that this was con-


structed so long ago.

If you or someone you know is one of over 10 million
women in America who suffer from loss of bladder control
or urinary incontinence, we may have good news for you.
Until now, many thousands of people have relied on
absorbent or sanitary products to avoid situations where
embarrassing leakage may occur. Unfortunately, though,
these products only help control the symptoms rather than
SOlve the problem.

Today, we can offer a new outpatient treatment that may
provide an important new solution to certain types of
female urinary incontinence. Talk with us to find out if this
remarkable new treatment is ri ht for ou. It could be the
most important call you'll ever make to restore an active,
healthy lifestyle.

HANK YOU'H
T Where to begin? Let's
start with all the people
that started drying the courts at
7:30 a.m. Saturday with rollers,
brooms, squeegees and blowers
to get ready for an 11:30 start of
the Fburth Annual Crystal River
Open tennis tournament. Would
you believe there was even a
weather man involved? A sup-
portive dad of one of the Crystal
River High School players was
at home keeping an eye on the
radar and giving updates to the
tournament directors. This was
mainly done for the safety of all
the players and it worked
because they were able to get
everybody off the courts before
the real heavy stuff hit them in
the afternoon. This gives you a
little bit of an idea of the work

I also said repeatedly that whoever
won Florida would wm the presidency.
This was not a lucky guess. A lot of
people who had been in politics for a

simply lowering the (exorbitant)

Too flawed to paSS
This response is to Gerry Mulligan's
somewhat sarcastic, but relatively
accurate, Jan. 13 column that is an
assessment of the proposed state con-
stitutional amendment appearing on
the Jan. 29 ballot.
There is way too much hyperbole,
overstatement and exaggeration com-
ing from both sides of this issue, but
the bottom line is that if passed, it
will: 1. give most of the relief to those
who need it least; 2. continue to shift
a large portion of the tax burden to
fron-homesteaded properties and
businesses; 3. present very serious
(and potentially costly) concerns
regarding the "portability" aspect; 4.
place no restriction on local or county
government's ability to increase mill-
age rates; and, 5. make future
attempts to reform the property tax
system extremely difficult.
So... Mr. Mulligan is absolutely cor-
rect in saying that this amendment is
just plain awful." It's just his con-
clusion that is not sound.
Instead of voting for this flawed and
politically motivated solution, the real
answer is to vote against this amend-
ment and give the people of Citrus
County what they really need (and
deserve). We must bring about our
own change in our state capital by
stopping the stranglehold of special-
interest dollars on our Legislature,

and needs, and to replace those who
have failed us in the past. Out with

Blame it OR Warming
It seems that everything
today is being blamed on
global warming. In fact,
even the horrible storms
and cold spells and
record-breaking lows
apparently are blamed on
Aggg global warming. But I also
VU SU see in your paper today
that the manatee deaths
have declined, that 100 fewer died
this past year. So it must be
because of global warming. It's got
to be. What else could it be? Finally
we see the positive aspects of glob-

who asked about tree recycling,

they chop it down? No. You brought
it home, so you take care of it...
Got that wrong
This is in response to a student in
high school's letter to the editor today.
She talks about government spending

do her research... Government does-

Restaurants are businesses...

CITRUS COUNTY (FI.) CHRONICLE COMMgif 9 DAY, .1^NII^

Should we change our state song? You ain't just whistling Dixie


Pittsburgh and never even vis-
ited.
With fear and trembling of
what my fellow sons and
daughters of the Sunshine
State might think, I'm going on
record: It's time to change our
state song.
Who knows, maybe Becky
will be able to sing all of the
lyrics of "Florida, Where the
Sawgrass Meets the Sky" while
crossing the Swanee River and
finally collect her million dol-
lars!

Fred Brannen is an Inverness
resident and a Chronicle
columnist.


And, like it or not, believe it or
not., my great-grandpa was at
least partially on point his
homeland was invaded and it.
nooded defending.
There is a soft spot in my
heart for the song "Swance
Rivor" that has nothing to do
with it being our state song.
When we lived in
Tallahassee and drove south to
visit relatives in this area, we
had to cross the Swanee
(Suwannee) river. Daughter
Becky, then a preadolescent
with a vivid imagination,
declared if she could sing the
whole song while we were
crossing the river, she'd win a
million dollars! She was never


able to do it, so whether she'd
have received a adhon bucks
has remained a moot point.
A contest was recently held
to select a song to propose to
the state legislature as a
replacement for "Swanee
River."
The one selected was titled
"Florida, Where the Sawgrass
Meets the Sky." I haven't heard
the melody, but the lyrics are
OK. It certainly beats "Florida,
Where Mickey and Minnie
Watch the Moon Shots."
It bothered me a little bit that
the author was from
Birmingham, England but at
least she lives here now.
Stephen Foster was from


( 47 down upon the

SSwance River (Old Folks at
Homel" was written by
Stephen Foster in 1851 and
adopted as Florida's state song
in 1935. During the past several
years, it has come under fire
@cause many feel its lyrics are
racist with talk of plantations
and the Old South. The words I
used at the outset are a para-
phrase of the original lyrics,
because I now find the broken
linglish Foster used to imitate
certain speech patterns offen-
save.


I'm confident
Foster meant no
harm, but he was
from a different time,
a time when slavery
existed and when the
denigration of people
simply because of the
color of their skin
was considered
acceptable.
But what about
Florida's state song?
Should it be
changed?


onto portions of tra-
ditions of the Old
South. The concept,
of political corred-
ness, which has
resulted in no one
whistling "Dixie"
anywhere, anytime,
anymore, entered
my mind.
I had thoughts of
pontificating about
my great-grandfa-
ther. William W


Roberts, and how he joined the
Confederate forces not to pro-
tect the despicable act of
enslaving others, but because
he thought he was defending
his homeland against invaders.


When I first sat down at the
keyboard to begin hacking
away at this piece, I intended
to vigorously defend our right
in the Current South to hang


make a bronze statue of him, it should be a
gold statue of Brett Favre. He is fabulous.
TOo many people
I'm responding to an article named
"Almost universal," someone referring to our
health care system. If you want universal
health care, you need to get the facts
because Canada has fewer people
' than we have in a 10-mile radius
of New York City alone. And we're
supposed to have health care for
300 million people in America?
The taxes and gas would be out of
sight. You need to get your facts
before you sound off on this issue.

,f Tarps on trucks
I think they ought to have tarps
4 on their vehicles when they're tak-
U ing their garbage to the trash pick-
up. I think we have the same prob-
[em, but they give tickets out for people who
don't have a tarp over the back of their pick-
up truck. It keeps it a lot cleaner and noth-
ing blows out and goes all over the side of
the road, like (State Road) 44 between Wal-
Mart and Lecanto. I think the sheriff should
give tickets out.
Cell phone returned
I was shopping at the Wal-Mart in
Homosassa today, Sunday, Jan. 13. 1
dropped my cell phone and realized it was
missing an hour later. I backtracked to Wal-
Mart and my cell phone was there for me at
customer Service. I want to thank the three
ladies working in the front for their honesty.
I am a snowbird from Tennessee and always
stop at Wal-Mart during my travels. I will
continue to do so because of people like
this who work in their store,
House prices
Less than five years ago, houses in Citrus
County cost half the price they are now. Why
aren t these same builders who are com-
plaining about the impadtfees lowering their
prices to pre-2004 levels?


f-~------c LETTERS ~IT to the Editor -----


I want to let the person know that they're
not the only ones sitting at the lights on U.S-
19 when there aren't any cars coming the
other way. Cardinal Lane is very bad, too.
it's disgusting. They need to fix those lights.
But you know the reason they have the lights

the time and it's no good. They need to fix
the lights and get the toll road out of their
heads. We do not need a toll road. Fix our
lights so that we do not have to sit and wait
when no cars are coming.

The decision to reject or support the amend-

need to examine the amendment as it affects
them both individually and as members of the
community with expectations for community
and school services. There may be areas of
conflict, so careful consideration is needed.

Who pays fee
I'm just reading all the articles about
impact fees and it seems like most of the
writers in the Sound Off and the other edito-
rials have missed the point. It's not the con
tractors or the real estate people who pay
impact fees; it's the homebuyer. I want to
build a new house here in Citrus to
live in and I'm the person who's
going to have to pay the high
&
impact fees, not the real estate and
not the contract people. So please
realize it's the homebuyer who pays
the impact fees. It's me who gets
impacted by the high fees. It costs I
me more for my house. It makes my
mortgage higher, and higher inter-
est rates are affecting how much I can

much as possible to increase
production of food on existing
farm lands using available
wates chemical fertilizers and
genetically altered crops. To
fend off starvation, we may
have to take additional land
and water that currently sup-
ports wildlife habitats. Many
species likely will be lost.
Permanently.
But there is hope from an
unheralded resource rising
atmospheric levels of carbon
dioxide!Thatiscorrect.
Increased levels of carbon
dioxide, as widely reported in
scientific journals, increase
plant productivity.
More grain can be grown per
acre, using less water and bet-
ter utilizing nitrogen fertiliz-
ers. The higher levels of atmos-
pheric carbon dioxide have
been shown in the laboratories
to protect plants against the


higher environmental temper-
atures we may well encounter
in the future.
There is no mention in the
mainstream media about the
benefits of increasing levels of
carbon dioxide. Most consider
it a pollutant even though, with
water and oxygen, it is the
basis of life as we know it. Yet,
this data is accessible to you
and me using Google and a
simple word search. The sci-
ence is easy for any journalist
to understand and lacking in
controversy.
Does our governor not know
about this and the impending
population crisis? Does he not
know how useless and costly
carbon restrictions will be? He
worries about property insur-
ance and property tax costs.
But these are minimal in com-
parison to what climate con-
trol regulations will cost us for


transportation, electrical

anmade global warm-
ing is very likely an
alarmist hoax, and
costly at that. Gov Charlie
Crist, a true believer, plans to
regulate carbon dioxide along
the lines of what California is
proposing. I wonder who he
thinks will pay for the increase
in auto prices to meet the reg-
ulations and the increased cost
per unit of electric power?
John McCain, the Clintons,
Obama and Edwards, most
Democrats in Congress,
Hollywood moguls, Al Gore
and leaders in Europe and
Asia. Quite an impressive list
of advocates for carbon restric-
tions! I'm not sure whether
their push to reduce atmos-
pheric carbon dioxide is the
result of ignorance, arrogance,
"herd mentality" or a skillfully
crafted attack on Western cap-
italism. Probably some of each.

Here are a few of
the "Inconvenient
Truths" regarding 4
manmade global
warming that can-
not be refuted:
1. Doubling the
current level of. Dr. W
atmospheric carbon Di
dioxide will have OT
little effect on
increasing global V01
temperatures.
2. Adhering to the strictest
proposed standards to reduce
carbon dioxide output (China,
India and Russia won't cooper-
ate, but assuming they did), we
could lower average global
temperatures by 0.05 degrees
Centigrade by century's end.
That's not a misprint! That 0.05
degrees is what is supported


. by the U.N.
Consensus report.
3. The proposed
restrictions on car-
bon fuels will cost
tens of trillions of
dollars and result in
lower standards of
living worldwide.
All to what good
lham end?

they've been able to monitor

Enter the infamous

anchored, the 12-4 watches at
night were the worst.
After you've heard the life

of bored seamen.
Late at night, the VHF
radio on channel 16 would
spurt out something along the
lines of "Hey, Filipino mon-

grossly obscene. Someone
else would respond, trying to
out-obscene the first trans-
mission. Threats of bodily
harm, unnatural sexual
deeds, marital status of one's
parents, etc., were rife.
Milder comments involved
use of torpedos against other
ships, unsanitary biological
deposits into a ship's water
supply, etc.
Washington, especially
President Bush who is spoil-
ing to invade Iran, fell for it.
The U.S. Naval bridge and
communications personnel
were aware of it and proba-
bly enjoyed it. Maybe that's
why the political uproar sud-
denly died down. Maybe the
NSA had a chat with the cur-

The Iranian bassboat navy
probably was not responsible
for the transmissions and, at
best, they were coincidental

057, I would like to sound off about
the property tax Amendment 1
that's coming up Jan. 29 ... If you
do not want homestead exemption, don't apply
for it. You don't have to have it, but at least let
the people that need it go ahead and have the
homestead exemption. If you have a $75,000
place, you'll only pay taxes on $25,000. The
article in the paper said it would help the rich.
Rich people don't live in $75,000 places.
They're trying to mislead ... Let's show them
that we'll take about anything we can get. My lit-
tIe house is up for sale because I can't afford
my property taxes. This will help me to keep my
house, and many others.

Editor's note: If you are referring to the Save Our
Homes tax cap, here is the answer that was pub-
lished in the Chronicle.
Q: Would Ikeep my Save Our Homes tax cap if
the amendment passes?
k Yes, it remains in effect. The change is that
protection accumulated under the cap would be
transferable. If the owner of a homesteaded proper-
ty that had accumulated protection from the 3 per-
cent cap protection over one or more years bought
another home that qualified for his homestead, he
could then apply that level of cap protection to the
new home's assessed value.

I would like to make a comment to our county
commissioners in Citrus County: I just want to
let you know that I'm your boss, I pay taxes here
and I voted you in office. You don't realize when
you get into office that you think you know more
better than the people in Citrus County ... that
we don't have no say-so in the government, that
you know what's going on and you know what's
best for Citrus County. I just want to let you
know that I'm your boss, that I do pay taxes
here in Citrus County, which I live here. The only
thing you understand is votes...
Why no takers?


This is to everyone who responded to
"Ticketing for slowness:" It doesn't matter if
you're going 40 mph or 75 mph, the left-hand
lane is for passing only. That's the law. You can't
cruise in the left-hand lane even if you're doing

Repair shop to

Ice Cold Air, a Clearwater-based

services at 19 locations, is helping
promote awareness of January's
Blood Donor month by offering to
dona a free oill ch ge anyTone

supplies at the local blood bank
are at an all time low for many
blood types, and donations are
appreciated more now than ever.
Robin Hughes, president of the
Tampa Bay area's leading repair
facility, comments, "Our business
has continued to grow because we
take a proactive approach to auto
repair, and our community involve-
ment. By donating our time and
resources to help awareness of a
need right here in our community,
we can help immediately with our
friends and neighbors. We believe
this is extremely important to the
future well-being of our communi-
ty."
The local blood bank is always
looking for help with a need of over
2,000 units of blood every day,
consistent donations are vitally
important. There is a need for
blood each and every day of the
year. By giving blood now, you are
helping to ensure this precious gift
is on hand for the patients who
need your help to survive an acci-
dent or illness. We all depend on
this perishable resource. Blood is
an emergency medicine and must
always be readily available.
Anyone wishing to take advan-
tage of the free oil change offer
should just bring in their "I donated
blood today" sticker or other proof
of donalon from the local blood
bank to any of the 19 Ice Cold Air
locations. Visit www.icecoldair.net
for a list of locations or call (800)
838-COLD. The oil changes will be
performed right away if possible, if
not, consumers will get a gift certifi-
cate that they can use in the future.

My Power Mall, along with
Together We Can Change The
World inc. (TWCCTW) launched a
pilot program recently aimed at help-
ing local brick and mortar stores,
wholesale outlets and service


providers to increase their bottom
line, improve customer loyalty and
their community image, all for free.
TWCCTW was formed in March
2004 to create a way for people to
become more active in helping
non-profit organizations (NPOs) in
ways other than simply sending
money. TWCCTW has since
opened additional divisions such
as Shop for Charity Day, Together
We Can Change The World Day

anMy oe MaMI I ched in
May 2007 and has exploded its
membership to exceed 98,000 in
this short time becoming the pre-
mier on-line fund-raising mail on
the Internet with over 1,100 stores
and merchants. My Power Mall has
done this and will continue to do
this with zero cost to its existing
and new memberships. Members
can shop on-line through their own
personal mall and a portion of
every purchase is automatically
rebated back to them monthly. This
not only creates a higher consis-
tent surge in Internet sales for the
stores and merchants, but also an
ongoing income for the mail own-
ers as they also gain a percentage
of the purchases made by others
who shop at their malls.
The launch of the My Power
Mall Business Partnership Program
means that local merchants can
now benefit directly from the ever
expanding membership of MPM
shoppers. When a merchant
becomes a partner, MPM members
will be directed to their place of
business through our Global
Merchant Internet Directory. The
directory is one of the many free
features to a local merchant and
they will benefit whether or not they
already have a Web presence. A
merchant only has to offer our
members a discount/rebate that
will not be payable until after your
customer has purchased. The
Business Partnership Program will
bring new customers to your door
and your discounts will turn them
into loyal customers.
In addition to increasing your
customer base by 25 percent or
more, our program is designed to
show you ways of reducing your
operating overhead all while you
make charitable contributions in
your Company's name without any-
thing extra coming out of your
pocket. One of the many ways
we've designed for you to increase
profits is through our partnership

Auto shop open during
environmental clean-up
A local auto repair shop is
undertaking an extensive environ-
mental remediation process to
clean up their property from old
fuel storage tanks. Brian and
Nancy Doane, owners of the
invemess location of Ice Cold Air at
102 Main St., said, "This situation
is not our fault, but it is our prob-
lem, and we are taking the neces-
sary steps to ensure the environ-
mental safety of our community."
They have owned the shop since
2005 when the shop was convert-
ed from an old gas station.
The project began on Jan. 7 and
is expected to take eight weeks. A
large fence has been erected to
secure the work area. Workers
plan to excavate the contaminated
soil and remove it from the proper-
ty to resolve any environmental
issues,
Even though the location will
look more like a construction site
than an auto repair shop, Ice Cold
Air will be open for business during
the project. Nancy Doane said,
"We are hoping our customers and
neighbors come in to get their cars
serviced, regardless of how much
construction equipment is parked
out front. We need everyone's sup-
port during this time. Help us while
we help the environment." Brian
and Nancy would love to see their
customers stop by or call them at
726-1828.
