BARBARA MILLS


MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle
Barbara Mills sits with husband Jim recently after being nominated for the Jefferson Award from the American Institute
for Public Service. The Citrus County Chronicle named Barbara Mills its Citizen of Year.


Award goes to veteran supporter

She calls herself the town beggar.
But what Barbara Mills really
does is ensure that the military men
and women who come home after
serving in the Middle East receive a
hero's welcome.
It's because of her dedication to
welcoming home these men and
women that Mills is the Chronicle's
2007 Citrus County Citizen of the
Year.
After soliciting the public for
nominations, the Chronicle
Editorial Board chose Mills as
Citrus County's outstanding citizen
from last year. For the past 27 years
the award has been presented to a
variety of people, couples and


groups that have made a positive
impact on the area.
Mills, 50, is Lecanto resident and
local Realtor. She has three
children who are all grown Forn
- the youngest, Kevin, Citiz
recently returned from the
Naval duty in Iraq. nom
Over the last few years plea
Mills has sent hundreds of
service men and women
care packages and gifts
overseas and has created more than
25 "welcome home" baskets for
those returning to Citrus County.
Each basket is worth between $600
and $800.
"She makes the veterans feel at
home when they come back," Citrus
County Heroes spokesman Jay Conti
said.
Today, when she reads the news-

paper, will be when Mills learns
about the Citizen of the Year award.
Interviews with her, family and
friends are from a recent interview
when she was nominated for a
Jefferson Award from the American
Institute for Public
Service.
n of Mills' project began in
'ear 2006 when her son, Kevin
needs, Mills, was serving in Iraq.
e see She and several other
mothers got together to
ME 1C send their children
Christmas care packages.
"We just got to talking and one
thing led to another," Mills said.
Not only did the women send
Christmas-themed care packages to
their sons, but to about 200 other
service men and women.
Next came Easter with a similar
project.

Lee Alexander and Scott Roush have
some friendly advice for Crystal River
police officers making the transition to
the Citrus County Sheriff's Office:
Enjoy.
Alexander and Roush both held high-
profile jobs with the Inverness Police
Department when it folded into the
sheriff's office four years ago. Both
made the transition to the sheriff's
office as well.
Today, both say it was the best move of
their careers.
"It's a great place to work, from the


top on down," Roush said. "There's a
brotherhood. It's like family There's a
sharing of information
and they really believe ,
in the community polic-
ing philosophy"
Alexander was chief
of police when he led .
the patrol on its final
shift March 31, 2004.

tenant with more than
20 years of service, Lee
enjoyed a friendly repu- Alexander

perfected the bicycle patrol.
In an interview last week, both said
they can understand the anxiety that
CRPD officers have as their final shifts

rienced it themselves.
"I was concerned at first," Roush
said. "Once I spoke to the sheriff, I did-
n't feel those concerns anymore. All that


stuff he told me that day has turned out
true."
Roush is the sheriff's

Price, Farley both saw

MIKE WRIGHT

As much as Phil Price believed it
would work, Jim Farley thought it
wouldn't.

ice that Crystal
River citizens and
taxpayers had come to enjoy, especial-
ly at a lower cost.
Farley's career in law enforcement
said so.
The two Crystal River Council mem-
bers took opposite views on one of the
city's most controversial decisions, one
that comes to fruition on Friday when
the sheriff's office begins patrol of city
streets.
Price had long beat the fiscal drum,
even before he joined the council. He
kept it going through a successful
council campaign, but ran up against a
solid three-member majority that
would not budge in favor of his
attempts to invite a proposal from the
sheriff.
That changed last summer when
councilwoman Susan Kirk left office to
run for an opening in the state
Legislature. Kirk's replacement,
Maureen McNiff, said she wanted to
consider the issue.
Farley, a retired Crystal River Police
Department chief, saw the political
writing on the wall. He then turned
debate toward the city determining
exactly what it wanted from the sher-
iff, and making sure it stuck to that
standard.
By late fall, the council had voted 3-
2 to end the city's 100-plus year tradi-
tion of municipal police by contracting
with the sheriff's office. The move is
expected to save the city about $500,000
- the value of one property tax mill.
The details of how this arrangement
came to be are contained in files at city
hall. The politics of it, though, rest with

Price, who was elected to the council
in 2006, sees many issues in black and
white. In nearly all cases, he pushes
hard for solutions that save money.
In 2005 he was helping to lead an
unsuccessful effort to force a referen-
dum on whether the city should be dis-
solved. He said that city services could
be handled more economically when
those costs were spread among the
county's 130,000 people.
Price changed his tune on dissolving
the city, but not when it came to the
police department. He based his suc-

Continued from Page 1A

Each time Mills coordinated
with businesses, veterans' organ-
izations, the media and anyone
willing to help her collect gifls
nid money to support the troops.
"'Real estate has been kind of
slow, so I've become the town
beggai;" Mills said.
, Last year as each of the local
military men and women serv-
ing began trickling home Mills
took the project one step further
4nd began making "welcome
home" baskets containing gift
certificates from area business-
es. There are certificates for oil
changes, haircuts, dinners,
movies, gas cards and just about
anything else Mills could get the
community to donate.
SShe gave out 26 baskets last
year and two so far in 2008.
She's also responsible for get-
ting businesses to welcome
home returning military service
men and women on their busi-
ness marquees.
,, Collecting the hundreds of gift
certificates and gifts for the bas-
kets and preparing each basket
to look extra special can con-
sume more than 20 hours a
week Last fall, when her list of
service men and women coming
lack was beginning to dwindle
Mills decided it was time to slow
down and pass along the task to
someone else. Shortly after that,
her husband, Jim Mills, had a
heart attack and needed help
recovering.
That's when local veterans
groups began to organize to let
Mills know how important her
work is.

Weaver Chapter 776 Military

Coalition told Mills they would
help her get the job done.
"All the veterans stepped up -
Citrus County stepped up. It
came alive," Jim Mills said.
This year it's expected that 50
military service men and
women will be returning to


Citrus County in the next year
Looking back, Mills is glad the
veterans groups have rejuvenat-
ed her in the project that she was
so passionate about She feels
like she knows each of the men
and women who received bas-
kets last year
"I could tell you all about
every one of them," Mills said.
These are the types of letters


GROUPS
WELCOME


I see so much in her. She's always bubbly.

There's always a solution to a problem. She always says
'Build a bridge and get over it.'


Jim Mills
about his wife Barbara.


she gets back from the troops.
"Thanks so much for your sup-
port It really means a lot that
people other than family take
the time to think of us,"
Inverness native David
Carpenter said in a thank you
note after recently returning
from Iraq.
"Thank you very much for
your thoughtfulness. The Easter
baskets are great If it weren't for
you, I don't believe I would have
even known it was Easter time,"
one serviceman wrote.
"Thanks for sending a little
piece of home out here in the
desert," another wrote.
Mills keeps all the notes along
with scrapbooks full of photos
and newspaper clippings.
'"This is why I do what I do,"
Mills said. "How could I not do it
when I get things like this?"
Jim Mills calls his wife his best
friend and is proud of her
efforts.
"I see so much in her She's
always bubbly There's always a
solution to a problem," he said.
"She always says, 'Build a bridge
and get over it'"
He said that what makes the


open


welcome home basket project
different is that it isn't about
whether or not a person sup-
ports the war in Iraq.
"We have a debt to these guys
that can never be repaid," Jim
Mills said.
Editorial board member and
retired Col. Curt Ebitz said that
welcoming military service men
and women home is a stark con-
trast to how veterans of other
wars have been treated. When
people came back from Vietnam
many were cursed, spit at and
suffered other indignities.
"What Barbara Mills is doing
is the right thing to do," Ebitz
said.
Ebitz said he was pleased by
the overwhelming support for
Mills from the public when it
came time to choose the Citizen
of the Year.
When Mills talks about what
she has done she attributes it all
to the help of her friends and the
community and the need to keep
busy
"It gives you less time to think
about things," Mills said, who
explained her struggles to get
over the almost constant worry

for her son, who will be heading
overseas in the coming months.
To make the project easier for
the public to learn about, Mills
has worked with veteran Jay
Conti to set up www.cit-
rusheroes.org. There, people
can learn how to donate to the
welcome home baskets and a lit-
tle about each military person
returning.
Working with Mills over the
past few months, Conti said the
veterans of Citrus couldn't have
found a better friend.
"She is a local household
name, as you can ask any person
in the Citrus County community
and they will know of all the
good deeds that Barbara Mills
has done," Conti said. "It is like
having Babe Ruth in our own
back yard."

MOVE
Continued from Page 1A

Alexander, now a sheriff's
detective, started his police
career with IPD in 1991. His
role in the transition was dif-
ferent than the other officers.
As the chief, he had to show
leadership and confidence.
"You push the positives:
take-home cat; better pay, reg-
ular pay increases. Suddenly,
people are saying, wow, this
might not look too bad," he
said.
Alexander and Roush said
that, from a professional
standpoint, the resources


afforded by the sheriff's
office far outweigh those from
the small police department.
Plus, they said, they're out
of' the public scrutiny that a
small town police depart ent
attracts.
"My stress level is nowhere
near what it was before,"
Alexander said.
They also agree on another
piece of advice for their
brethren in Crystal River:
Recognize the significance of'
that final shift.
As the IPD shift wore down
toward midnight on March 31,
2004, Alexander left officers
on a parade of' sorts through
an eerily silent town as
Dawsy's officers stood by, out


of the way, and watched. Each
officer signed off, with
Alexander being the last to do
so.
"I think they should do
that," Alexander said of the
CHIPl). "It brings closure.
They need to have that
break."

These Crystal River Police
Department cruisers will no
longer be parked outside city
hall after Friday. City officials
voted to turn over policing
duties to the Citrus County
Sheriffs Office to save money,
just as the city of Inverness
did in 2004.

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT
NO.1
CONSTITUTIONAL REVISION
ARTICLE VII, SECTIONS 3, 4, AND 6
ARTICLE XII, SECTION 27
(Legislative)
Property Tax Exemptions; Limitations On Property Tax Assessments
This revision proposes changes to the State Constitution relating to property taxation. With respect to
homestead property, this revision: (1) increases the homestead exemption except for school district taxes and
(2) alows homestead property owners to transfer up to $500,000 of their Save-Our Homes benefits to their next
homestead. With respect to nonhomestead property, this revision (3) provides a $25,000 exemption for tangible
personal property and (4) limits assessment increases for specified nonhomestead real property except for
school district taxes.
In more detail, this revision:
(1) Increases the homestead exemption by exempting the assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000. This
exemption does not apply to school district taxes
(2) Provides for the transfer of accumulated Save-Our-Homes benefits, Homestead property owners will be
able to transfer their Save-Our-Homes benefit to a new homestead within 1 year and not more than 2 years
after relinquishing their previous homestead; except, if this revision is approved by the electors in January of
2008 and if the new homestead is established on January 1, 2008, the previous homestead must have been
relinquished in 2007. If the new homestead has a higher just value than the previous one, the accumulated
benefit can be transferred; if the new homestead has a tower just value, the amount of benefit transferred wil
be reduced. The transferred benefit may not exceed $500,000. This provision applies to all taxes.
(3) Authorizes an exemption from property taxes of $25,000 of assessed value of tangible personal property.
This provision applies to all taxes.
(4) Limits the assessment increases for specified nonhomestead real property to 10 percent each year.
Property will be assessed at just value following an improvement, as defined by general law, and may be
assessed at just value following a change of ownership or control if provided by general law. This limitation
does not apply to school district taxes. This limitation is repealed effective January 1, 2019, unless renewed by
a vote of the electors in the general election held in 2018.
Further, this revision:
a. Repeals obsolete language on the homestead exemption when it was less than $25,000 and did not appqy
uniformly to property taxes levied by all local governments.
b. Provides for homestead exemptions to be repealed if a future constitutional amendment provides for
assessment of homesteads "at less than just value" rather than as currently provided "at a specified
percentage' of ust value.
c. Schedules the changes to take effect upon approval by the electors and operate retroactively to January 1,
2008, if approved in a special election held on January 29, 2008, or to take effect January 1, 2009, if approved
in the general election held In November of 2008. The limitation on annual assessment increases for specified
real property shall first apply to the 2009 tax roll if this revision is approved in a special election held on January
29, 2008, or shall first apply to the 2010 tax roll if this revision is approved in the general election held in
November of 2008.

SHERIFF
Continued from Page 1A

cossful run for city council at
merging both fire and police
with the county.
"I have a major in economics.
I call this the dis-economy of
small scale," he said. "It's when
a business can't afford a bull-
dozer but needs a bulldozer
once in a while."
In other words, he said, the
city of 3,600 people couldn't
afford the bells and whistles of
a full-fledged police depart-
ment when sharing those serv-
ices with the much larger coun-
ty sheriff's office would be
much cheaper.
Price did his homework. He
learned that in Inverness,
which contracted with the sher-
iff's office in 2004, the law
enforcement cost per person is
$150. He contacted 24 cities and
the average per capital cost was
$246. Crystal River's cost per
person: $500-plus.
"I didn't like 60 percent budg-
et increases in a three-year
period," he said.
But he got nowhere. Every
time Price brought up the idea
of seeking a proposal from the
sheriff, council members
Farley, Kirk and John
Kostelnick shot it down:
"I lost a lot," he said.
When McNiff was elected to
replace Kirk on the city council,
Price at least had the votes to
consider the idea. But not much
else, he said.
"(Mayor) Ron Kitchen wasn't
in favor of it either," Price said.
"During one meeting, he said to
me, 'You know Phil, I really
don't want to do this.' Maureen
worked very hard before she
came to her decision."
Price said he knows that
Farley and Kostelnick have con-
cerns about the level of service,
but he believes that won't be a
factor with Sheriff Jeff Dawsy
"He's been around here a
long time," Price said. "He
knows as much about law
enforcement as anyone in this
county."


Price did his homework. He learned that
in Inverness, which contracted with
the sheriff's office in 2004, the law
enforcement cost per person is $150.
He contacted 24 cities and the average
per capital cost was $246. Crystal
River's cost per person: $500-plus.


Public interest was low, Price
said. About a dozen people told
him they favored the sheriff's
takeover. Four, he said, were
against it
"I asked all four of those peo-
ple why. Two of them said
'because.' They didn't have a
reason," he said.
Price said he believes citi-
zens will be pleased both with
the service from the sheriff and
the cost savings.
"They'll figure we made a
good deal," he said. 'We can't
match those resources. We're
too small to have what we want-
ed."
Jim Farley doesn't want to
sound negative. Just practical.
He's heard the police rheto-
ric since moving to Crystal
River in 1999 from the Fort
Lauderdale area. He said as the
talk picked up steam in recent
years, he could only reflect on
his own experience.
It was 1992 and Farley was
retiring as a commander with
the Fort Lauderdale Police
Department. His chief, Ron
Cochran, had just been elected
sheriff of Broward County and
asked Farley to head up the
force in Dania, a city of about
15,000 that earlier had contract-
ed law enforcement services
with the sheriff's office.
He said there were issues.
Investigators that were
assigned to Dania were drawn
out to other parts of the county.
Same with road patrol, on occa-
sions.
"People would call for serv-
ice and get placed on a waiting
list," Farley said. "It didn't
always make the citizens


happy"
And more. "Dania became a
dumping ground for problem
deputies," Farley said.
Farley is quick to say that he
isn't suggesting the Broward
experience will be repeated in
Crystal River. He only wants
people to know the drawbacks,
ones that he experienced.
Farley made it clear where
he stood. He opposed contract-
ing with the sheriff, but he
made it clear that if the council
majority went that way, he
would do what he could to
ensure a smooth transition.
He saw the tide turning after
McNiff's election to the city
council. Then, Farley said, he
decided to make sure that at
least the council had a firm
understanding of the potential
pitfalls as he saw them.
"It was becoming inevitable,"
he said. "I wanted to explain
the risks that were there. I knew
I was going to lose."
His experience aside, Farley
said he was impressed with
Dawsy's presentation and his
assurances. After the council
vote, Farley also sat in as Dawsy
addressed CRPD employees to
ease their fears about the tran-
sition.
"I'll accept his word," Farley

Plus, as a retired CRPD chief,
Farley said he is disturbed to
see the police force abolished.
"It troubles me that, on one
evening, five people can make
that history that tradition -
end," he said. "The commit-
ment is gone. That tradition is
gone."

What tre
ne step from certain
death. Do not walk
alone. Do not go out at
night Do not take an umbrella
it will do you no good. Don't
come in out of the rain, as it
S will soon stop. Stay on the
paths. If you encounter a prob-
lem, help will be slow to arrive.
At this point, we were wonder-
ing why our Chinese friends,
with whom we often travel,
would bring us to such a dan-
gerous place a sinister plot,
perhaps?
This introductory advice was
given upon arriving at possibly
the most exotic and mystical
site that I have ever visited. It's
not Mount McKinley, the Dome
at Yosemite, or even Mount
Everest, but it is the No. 1
Mountain under heaven,
according to the Chinese -
Huangshan Mountain. This is
the location of the scenes often
depicted in traditional Chinese
art and movies of jagged
menm- mountains enshrouded in fog
arrow and linked by strategically
placed bridges.
Getting there is half the fun,
h and the easiest part, we
learned as we clambered
aboard the 60-passenger Yungu
cable car for the two-mile ride
- -- at one point half-a-mile
above ground to the path
o leading to the Shiling Hotel,
which would be our home for
1 the next few days.
d off "Exotic" does not come close
fny to describing the 22-square-
mile forest of stone pillars and
granite outcroppings of
grotesquely shaped rocks of
the Huangshan Mountains
west of Shanghai, near Wuhan.
The rocks and gnarly pines
a seem intimately involved, as
nearly every rock has a pine
tree growing from it, often at a
tortuous angle and always
above a precipitous drop-off.
A maze of trails up, over and
around the jumbled landscape
* presented many challenges as
the path is sometimes hewn
out of the rock as stair-steps or
simply cut out of the side of the
mountain. Apparently, safety
was not important to the
builders. Many locations posed
a threat, where one dared not
lose one's footing if they
wished to avoid a fatal fall. An
occasional rusty handrail was
a welcome sight but not to be
trusted.
There are four distinct sea-
sons on Huangshan. We were
fortunate to be there in early
June when the weather was
characterized as perfect, yet
volatile enough that the fog
would roll in, followed by a
* rain shower, then the sun

Special to the Chronicle
A porter carries supplies to and from the hotel on top of Huangshan
Mountain, China.


:The Huang-
shan Mountains are
composed of verti-
cal rock strata and
stunted pine trees,
some estimated to
be hundreds of
years old, yet small
in size nature's

Neil Sawyer

TOUR GUIDE


would suddenly put in an
appearance. Pictures and sto-
ries of the winter season por-
tray the mountain as a glisten-
ing, silver fairyland. The sea-
sons of spring and fall are
splashed with color floral in
the spring and autumn leaves
in the fall.
The mountain peaks emerge
and disappear in a sea of
clouds that ebb and flow like
the tide. One minute, your view
is of endless canyons slipping
away and merging in the dis-
tance; the next minute, it's as if
you are on the beach of a foam-
ing ocean.
All luggage and provisions -
along with everything utilized
and dispensed at the hotel -
are brought tip the mountain to
the hotel by porters, as there
are no roads. Huge heavy loads
are tied to the ends of large
bamboo poles laid across their


shoulders bending like a fly
rod bobbing up and down
with each step. Their gait is
poetry in motion as they move
smoothly up and down the
stairs and pathways. Bales of
fresh linens going up bun-
dles of soiled linens coming
down. Fresh foods and drinks
going up trash coming down.
My muscular 200-pound travel-
ing companion and old Navy
buddy, asked a porter if he
could try carrying a load -
failing miserably, as he could
barely get the load off the
ground. Yet the porter gingerly
hoisted the load to his shoul-
ders and took off in a trot
Porters would make two round
trips per day, an awesome feat
probably matched only by the
Shorpas climbing Mount
Everest.

GUIDE
Continued from Page A2
Our three days on the moun-
tain was a spellbinding adven-
ture of"oohs" and "aahs" as we
rounded each rock for a totally
different landscape view.
Heeding the cautionary


instructions given by the hotel
staff at the outset enabled our
group of seven to enjoy one of
the most scenic and exciting
outings ever, often wet, but
never falling ending any sus-
picion of a plot.

Neil Sawyer is a 22-year
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 sev-
eral domestic excursions
annually. They prefer inde-
pendent travel or with small-
group guided tours.

Cortes scores 40 points in Lecanto win


JON-MICHAEL SORACCHI

OCALA Victor Cortes has
what can be modestly
described as a bag of tricks.
The shifty senior point guard
for the Lecanto boys basketball
team had it all out on display
Saturday afternoon in the
Wildcat Challenge at Forest
High School against Mel-
bourne, dropping 40 points on
the Bulldogs during a 74-62 vic-
tory by the Panthers.
The total was a career high
for Cortes who, despite having
a rough go of handling the ball
at times, controlled the game
for Lecanto against a very
quick and aggressive
Melbourne team that pressed
the Panthers all night long and
was in the game until the very
end.
Lecanto, ranked third in
Class 4A-6 is now 21-0 on the
season, held the lead nearly
the entire contest but had to
hold off Melbourne, who had
cut the lead to five on three


separate occasions in the
fourth quarter.
The only other Panther in
double digits was Nick Cortes,
who put in 14. Elijah Bradley
added nine for Lecanto.
As far as Victor Cortes' per-
formance went, Panthers
coach Chris Nichols was
impressed.
"Victor's performance... man,
he played really well," Nichols
said. "He kept the pace of the
game where we wanted it."
The second time, the
Bulldogs pulled within 65-60
and had the ball with 2:18 left,
but a turnover and a pair of
free throws by Stephen
Buckley sufficiently ended
Melbourne's hopes.
With the game clearly in
hand, Cortes realized a pair of
points would put him at 40 and
went over to the bench to tell
his coach. Nichols' response
was, "Are you kidding me? Go
get that basket!"
So with three seconds left, a
mad dash to the rack led to a
layup and points 39 and 40 for
Victor on the day.
"Me and my brother (guard


Nick Cortes) have scored 30
points in a game, so I wanted to
be different and get into the
40's," Victor explained.
While Victor Cortes' big day
and the subsequent win made
the Panthers feel good about
themselves, it wasn't all sun-
shine and blue skies for
Lecanto.
Melbourne, without ques-
tion, gave the Panthers all they
could handle and forced
Lecanto into almost 30
turnovers. In fact, had the
Bulldogs not had trouble con-
verting layups, the outcome
would have been different.
"I thought our guys gave
great effort" said Melbourne
coach Mike Suliven, whose 6A
team fell to 11-11 overall. "We
talk about focus and finishing a
lot and tonight, we had trouble
with the finishing part."
Antonio Johnson was at the
forefront for the Bulldogs, scor-
ing a team-high 19 points and
playing at the top of his team's
defense.
Both squads got big plays
from all over the court yet, in
crunch time, it was the Cortes


brothers showing why they are.
often the best players on the
court.
After Melbourne cut the,
Panthers' margin to 57-52 with-
a little more than five minutes
in the game, Victor Cortes
answered with a spinning
layup. Johnson responded with,
an easy basket of his own to put,
the contest back at a five-point,..
event before Victor Cortes-:,'
knocked down a pair of free.,;
throws.
"We felt like we had to prove:
something," Victor said. A big-,
6A school and a lot of doubters,,-
who don't think we've played,
anyone."
Victor's brother, Nick, then.
went to work, getting an offen-,.,',
sive rebound and put-back and,;
then an off-balance layup to:-,.
stake the Panthers to a 63-54-
margin. ..'
The Bulldogs eventuallyi-;
pulled with five, 65-60, but,,
Buckley's free throws followed
by a left-handed lay in by
Victor that rolled around the,,.

HISTORY
Today is Sunday, Jan. 27, the
27th day of,2008. There are 339'
days left in the year.
Today's Highlight in History:
On Jan. 27, 1967, astronauts
Virgil I. "Gus" Grissom, Edward H.
White and Roger B. Chaffee died
in a flash fire during a test aboard
their Apollo spacecraft at Cape
Kennedy, Fla.
On this date:
In 1756, composer Wolfgang
Amadeus Mozart was bom in
Salzburg, Austria.
In 1880, Thomas Edison
received a patent for his electric
incandescent lamp.
In 1901, opera composer Giuseppe
Verdi died in Milan, Italy, at age 87..
In 1943, some 50 bombers
struck Wilhelmshaven in the first
all-American air raid against
Germany during World War II.
In 1944, the Soviet Union
announced the complete end of
the deadly German siege of
Leningrad, which had lasted for
more than two years.
In 1945, Soviet troops liberated
the Nazi concentration camps
Auschwitz and Birkenau in Poland.
In 1951, an era of atomic testing
in the Nevada desert began as an
Air Force plane dropped a 1-kilo-
ton bomb on Frenchman Flat. -
Ten years ago: Shaken by
scandal over his relationship with
former White House intern Monica
Lewinsky, President Bill Clinton
sought to reassert his leadership in
his State of the Union address,
urging Congress to "save Social
Security first" before cutting taxes
or increasing spending. Earlier in
the day, First Lady Hillary Rodham
Clinton, on NBC's 'Today" show,
charged the allegations against
her husband were the work of a
"vast right-wing conspiracy."
Five years ago: The Bush
administration dismissed Iraq's
response to U.N. disarmament
demands as inadequate.
Meanwhile, chief U.N. inspector
Hans Blix charged that Iraq had
never genuinely accepted U.N.
resolutions demanding its disarma-
ment and warned that "coopera-
tion on substance" was necessary
for a peaceful solution.
One year ago: Tens of thou-
sands of anti-war demonstrators
marched in Washington, D.C., call-
ing for the U.S. to get out of Iraq.
Today's Birthdays: Actor
James Cromwell is 68. Actor John
Witherspoon is 66. Rock musician
Nick Mason (Pink Floyd) is 63.
Ballet star Mikhail Baryshnikov is
60. John Roberts, chief justice of
the United States, is 53.
Thought for Today: "All history
is modern history." Wallace
Stevens, American poet (1879-
1955).

CHARLES WAGY
Special to the Chronicle


his was an assignment I did not want to end.
After a brief conversation with Chronicle
Publisher Gerry Mulligan last September, he
extended an invitation to me to serve as a guest mem-
ber of the newspaper's editorial board for a three-
month term.
Having spent more than 35 years in broadcast news,
I was pleased to accept.
As I walked into the conference room that first
week in October, I didn't know what to expect. After a
couple of minutes of explanation from Gerry, I took
my seat at the foot of the table.
Mulligan sits at the head of the table. To his right,
Jim Hunter, Charlie Brennan, Neale Brennan and
Mike Arnold occupy the chairs. To his left is Kathie


Stewart and to her left are the three civilian (as in
non-employee) board members: Mac Harris, Curt
Ebitz and the newcomer. Harris and Ebitz are perma-
nent citizen members.
These Wednesday morning meetings are an exer-
cise in democracy. Everyone at the table has an equal
vote and ample opportunity to express opinions.
(How democratic? During my last meeting, I was
outvoted 6 to 1. I won't reveal the subject, but it may
become obvious by reading next Sunday's editorial).
Each board member receives a list of potential edi-
torial subjects on Tuesday, usually 20 or so topics. Any
board member is free to suggest additional topics
when the meeting begins.
The object is to create seven editorials to run the
following week. Each board member may vote for five
editorials and rank them 5 through 1. The publisher
tallies the votes. When the seven subjects with the


highest scores are chosen, the
debate) begins.

you're going to protest the tanning

Apples and oranges
Our county commission recently
decided to forego employing the
services of an outside consulting
firm to do an impact fee study prior
to deciding whether or not to roll
back the rates to the 2002 level.
This was a wise move. The burden
of equitable fees now rests upon
county staff, and the commission.
It is a fact the current impact fee
schedule is riddled with inconsis-
tencies and must be addressed.
Now is the time to address these
inconsistencies. Studies and opin-
ions have been based on the com-
parisons of counties with similar
population bases to determine
impact fees here in Citrus County.
Although interesting, comparing
population figures is not the crite-
ria that should be used to deter-
mine our impact fee schedule.
We must take into account the
stage of infrastructure each county
is in prior to any comparison. From
the information I have gathered,
our current impact fee schedule
accounts for about 23 percent of the
cost of growth. Growth is not mak-
ing a sufficient revenue contribu-
tion, despite this goal being stated
by each of our current commission-
ers during their election cam-
paigns. The reason for this is that
we are now paying the price for
having one of the lowest impact
fees in Florida prior to 2002.
The comparison must be made to
counties that are in a similar stage
of infrastructure completion as
Citrus County, rather than popula-
tion figures. We have a five-year
CIP, and impact fees are reviewed
every three years. By having impact
fees reviewed every five years to
coincide with our current five-year
CIPs would be a step in the right
direction. It would also allow a

how our county building division
operates.
The reserve fund was built by per-


the Editor


mit fees and inspections collected
by the county. Now I know why own-
ers complain when trying to do
remodeling jobs and alterations to
buildings. The county sees that as
an opportunity to rake in money and
protect its jobs.
Is that why a remodel project may
require multiple permits when, in
reality, one permit could be issued
for the whole project? Is the Citrus
County staff making up rules requir-
ing multiple permits, collecting mul-
tiple fees, and driving the citizens
crazy at its own discretion, or are
there state laws mandating every
permit issued by Citrus County?
I have heard from builders that
Citrus is one of the worst counties
to do business in and I'm not sure
that this article isn't bringing to
light why that opinion exists. Even
the city of Inverness is having diffi-
culty working with the county, as
indicated in an news article from
that same Chronicle edition. When
Inverness Councilwoman Marti
Consuegra said, "Sometimes, I think
we're dealing with a bunch of
teenagers," I know that she wasn't
talking about the employees who
are just carrying out the jobs they
were hired to do, but the building
division directors need to take
notice. I believe she is sharing an
opinion held by many in and out of
the county.
We get the level of service we set-
tle for, and in this case, we have
been relying on our county commis-
sioners and the county administra-
tor to look out for our interests. I
think that they have failed us. I'm
glad this is an election year, because
I am not going to settle for the way
we've been treated over the past
seven years. Changes are needed.

A true friend can really change your luck


My sweetheart and I
were at a local eatery
for lunch a few days
ago. After ordering, while wait-
ing for our meal to be brought
out, I noticed a handsome cou-
ple walk in. I caught only a
glimpse of the lady, but I quick-
ly studied the face of the man
and determined he was not a
part of the downtown
Inverness lunch crowd.
Moments later, Cheryl
exclaimed, "It's Dorothy!"
I looked up and the lady I'd
only caught a glimpse of earlier
was standing at our table. Sure
enough, it was Dorothy, a dear
friend from my youth, someone
with whom I share a history. I


was aware she'd
remarried recently
after being single for
a number of years.
Cheryl and I were '
invited to the wed-
ding, but circum- -
stances made it
impossible for us to
attend. Dorothy and
her husband, Danny, Fred B
were in Inverness on A SLI
business. As she LI
escorted us to their
table to introduce us to her
hubby, my mind took a light-
ning-quick trip back to my boy-
hood:
Our families attended the
same church. During our gram-


Br,
I
I


mar school days, her
brother and I were
close buddies and
Dorothy was the lit-
tle sister who always
seemed to be in the
o" sway
As we grew a little
older, she didn't
seem like such a
rannen bother anymore, and
CE OF by the time we were
FE teenagers, ours was
-- the enjoyable, yet
awkward relationship that
comes for a boy and a girl who
are very close friends, but are
not at all sure if it is anything
more.
As young folks are inclined


do, we gave romance a chance.
And, as teenage boys are wont
to do, I tried my luck. First
base? Dorothy always
remained the lady and never
even let me out of the batter's
box.
On an evening of note, we
were at a party. I'd gone alone,
but Dorothy was there. As the
evening wore on, a girl I knew
only casually became quite
friendly and attached herself
to me.
Suddenly, Dorothy was at my
side. She slipped her hand in
mine and cooed in my ear,
"Lose the sweetie, you're tak-
ing me home tonight is your
lucky night!"


My ego was at an all-time
high two girls, both of 'em
wanting me!
Shortly thereafter, Dorothy
and I left together. Once again,
I made a play, trying to connect
in hopes of hitting a homer, and
once again she tied my arms in
knots. I protested, "What gives?
You said this was my lucky
night!"
She replied, "It is. The other
girl is pregnant and if her
scheme had worked, you could
have been the victim of prema-
ture matrimony."
After we'd been married
long enough for Cheryl to
appreciate the circumstances
and without fear of her becom-


ing jealous, I told her the story.
Through the years, more than
once, my wife has thanked
Dorothy for preserving me for
her.
Then we were there. I
reached out my hand to Danny
and gave him a hug, congratu-
lating him and thanking him
for making Dorothy as happy as
she deserves to be. And, then,
the love of my life and I
thanked my friend once more
for what she did on my lucky
night.

Letter to the EDITOR


Handling personnel
My wife and I recently relocated
from Palm Beach County to
Sugarmill Woods.We really like it
here, but some things are surprising.
One is the shocking lack of profes-
sionalism in handling of two per-
sonnel issues reported in the
Chronicle.
These were of particular interest
to me since I worked for 30 years as
a human resources executive for


two of the most highly respected
firms in the world, RCA and GE,
and also conducted my HR consult-
ing business during a 14-year period
with many high-profile clients.
I understand that the first case
involving the termination of the
assistant county administrator is in
litigation, and for various reasons it
appears that it was handled very
poorly by the county administrator
and will end up costing taxpayers
dollars to satisfy someone's person-


al vendetta.
Handling of the most recent case,
Citrus County Fire Chief Richard
Stover, is, as pointed out in the
Chronicle editorial, an absolute
bungling from a human resources
standpoint.
Do you really accept anonymous
charges as a valid basis for placing
the accused on paid leave and pay-
ing some lawyer to conduct an
investigation?
Are you going to do that every


time some disgruntled employee
files an anonymous charge?
You should have a policy that
anonymous charges are not accept-
ed they are a form of character
assassination.
The person or persons who
should be terminated are those who
allowed this to proceed as it did.
For the money that was wasted on
the seven-week paid leave and
whatever you paid the lawyer, you


could have sent the chief to a man-
agement training seminar at The
Center for Creative Leadership,
which would be helpful to all key
managers.
Maybe you county commissioners
should show a good example by
attending such a seminar your-
selves.
I did.

"they know where the bodies are
buried," but, in large measure, they
do.
Most meetings include guests: the
county administrator and the chair-
person of the board of commissioners
come once a month, as do the city
managers of Crystal River and
Inverness.
The superintendent of schools


attends regularly, her schedule per-
mitting.
The sheriff is about to become a
regularly scheduled guest.
Some mornings, a person or a group
with a specific cause or project
attends to make a case before the
board.
Once the guests leave and the seven
topics are selected, the discussions
begin. What should the editorial
include? What is the newspaper's
position?
There is nothing monolithic about
these sessions. The publisher encour-


ages healthy debate and there is no
shortage of it One board member
attends an easel with a felt tip pen to
capture the comments and salient
points.
When the discussion is over, each
editorial is assigned to a board mem-
ber for translating all those thoughts
into the words that the reader sees on
the editorial page each morning.
No one person writes the editorials.
The person assigned is usually the
one best versed in the subject or with
special knowledge to impart.
It is a fascinating process, one I did


not anticipate, but quickly came to
appreciate.
Many of us transplants spent years
in or near major cities. Our daily print
news sources were large metropolitan
dailies.
Exchanging The New York Times,
The Washington Post, The Detroit
News, Chicago Tribune, The
Philadelphia Inquirer, The Atlanta-
Journal Constitution, The Plain
Dealer or The Miami Herald for the
Citrus County Chronicle was an
adjustment.
But, I remember what Gerry


Mulligan told me that first morning:
"We are a community newspaper"
Many of us came here to find "a com-
munity," escaping the metropolitan
hustle and bustle, the traffic, the chaos
and concommitant living expenses.
Gerry Mulligan and the Chronicle
staffers, I salute what you do and the
service you provide.

COMMNIE N TARY


Florida once again key to winning the nation


t's amazing, but once again
the road to the presidency
goes through Florida. This
time. Florida is key in the
Republican Primary.
Mitt Romney beat John
McCain in Michigan, but his
victory was not overwhelming.
Furthermore, before the elec-
tion. Romney decided to play it
safe, saying that Michigan was
not a must-win state for him.
The win, therefore, was not
dramatic, and, in fact, was rela-
tively ho-hum.
All the Republican candi-
dates scrambled to South
Carolina for the Jan. 19 pri-
mary, where McCain had a
close victory McCain will come
to Florida with more momen-
tum than Romney, and all the
Republican candidates for the
first time will have an added
starter,; Rudy Giuliani.
Giuliani has more to gain or
to lose than anybody in the
Florida election. His strategy
was not to get involved in the
early primaries. This strategy


was based on a real-
istic assessment
that Giuliani would
not do well in Iowa
and New
Hampshire because
of his personal his-
tory and his stance
on abortion and
stem cell research.
This was not a
brilliant strategic
move, but a move
based on poor poll
results and necessi-

ty. If he doesn't win in Florida,
he will be injured in the super
duper election on Feb. 5.
Republicans will have contests
in 21 states, with 975 delegates
at stake representing 41 per-
cent of the total available.
There is no way the candidates
can campaign personally or
wage television campaigns in
all these states, which if done
would cost well over $35 mil-
lion.
If he wins Florida, McCain
will have created his own


momentum and go
into Feb. 5 leading
in national polls.
C Giuliani has
focused on some
states in the
Northeast, such as
Connecticut, Del-
aware, New Jersey
and New York,
Frey where he has an
I fk-Y opportunity to win
C: ES all of those dele-
gates.
Romney will
probably finish third in Florida
and be on life support. At the
moment, it appears no one is
going to win a majority of the 21
states, which means that the
Republican primary will con-
tinue after Feb. 5 with fewer
contenders. Huckabee will
drop out after finishing fourth.
The X-factor remains
Giuliani, whose campaign has
been damaged by his lack of
involvement and whose nation-
al lead has disappeared, but
who could have enough gas left


in the tank to re-energize the
campaign and become a legiti-
mate contender in the race for
the Republican presidential
nomination.
On the Democrat side,
Florida is not important. The
reason Florida is not important
is that no delegates are at
stake, thanks to the decision by
Howard Dean, head of the
Democratic National
Committee. This decision has
been the only bright spot for
the Republicans in Florida. It
also means that whatever
momentum there is will be cre-
ated in the South Carolina
Democratic open primary,
meaning you don't have to pre-
register in a party to vote. The
primary was on Jan. 26. The
Democrats on Feb. 5 will have
contests in 22 states with more
than 1,601 delegates (52 per-
cent) of total available.
Finally, just to remind you of
the significance of the states
voting on Feb. 5 in alphabetical
order, they are: Alabama,


Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas,
California, Colorado (by cau-
cus), Connecticut, Delaware,
Georgia, Illinois,
Massachusetts, Minnesota (by
caucus), Missouri, Montana,
Nebraska, New Jersey, New
Mexico, New York, North
Dakota, Oklahoma, Tennessee,
Utah, West Virginia and
American Samoa.
In summary, the winner of
the Republican Primary in
Florida will win the most dele-
gates on Feb. 5. The one who
comes in fourth will drop out.
The third-place finisher will be
on life support. The
Republican campaign will con-
tinue.
Some of the bigger primary
elections after Feb. 5 for
Republicans are: Maryland
(37) on Feb. 12, Ohio (88) and
Texas (140) on March 4,
Mississippi (39) on March 11,
Pennsylvania (74) on April 22,
Indiana (57) and North
Carolina (69) on May 6, and
Kentucky (45) and Oregon (30)


on May 20.
Hillary Clinton will have the
most delegates on Feb. 5. Also,
there are 825 "super" dele-
gates and Clinton has most of
those already committed to
her. This represents over 25
percent of the 2,104 delegates
needed to win the nomination.
The Democratic Race will be
over on Feb. 6.
Americans are great at office
pools. A great office pool would
be to set one up for each party
state by state for Feb. 5. Of
course, gambling is illegal in
some areas. I am not suggesting
that anybody be monetarily
rewarded for winning, but I
would be glad to publish their
names and winning results in
this column.

Bag limit of one
The Gulf of Mexico Fisheries Management
Council will meet from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Wednesday, Jan. 30, at the Radisson at 12600
Roosevelt Blvd. in St Petersburg, and public
comment will be taken.
Folks, I don't know how else to put this: If
you are a recreational fisherman/spearo who
fishes or hunts on Florida's Gulf Coast, there
has never been a meeting more important for
you to attend. What can occur from this meet-
ing is a worst-case doomsday scenario of a one
gag grouper bag limit with a five-month closed
season that will go into the books as early as
2009. An emergency ruling may be.created to
immediately put these measures in place until
the permanent regulations go into effect.
Are you going to spend $3.50 per gallon on
fuel or $550 to $600 on a weekend charter to
shoot one gag grouper seven months out of the
year, one red grouper, one amberjack (or half
of one) and two red snappers five months out
of the year? Of course not These measures are
designed to eliminate recreational fishing in
the Gulf of Mexico.
If there is any way possible that you can
come to this meeting, then your presence is
imperative. You don't need to speak if you don't
want to, but there is more impact with the
number of people in attendance especially if
the print and TV media are present more than
anything that is specifically said in public com-
ment
If you cannot attend, then e-mail the mem-
bers of the council with the message you would
say at the meeting. Send the e-mail during the
meeting so that their Outlook inboxes are burn-
ing up while they stare at their computers
avoiding our eye contact, and doing their best
to ignore our public comment.

Council Staff tab. You'll see a listing of all the
Council members with their e-mail addresses.

Question everything
A caller in Sound Off is apparently con-
vinced by the hype over global warming. The
only evidence offered was that the 6:30 news
showed some shots of ice that's melting all
over the world. Yes, that's it. No questions
asked.
I believe it's always best to question every-
thing you hear, and believe about half of what
you see, especially on the 6:30 news; otherwise,
one is easily brainwashed by propaganda, spin
and political agenda. It makes me wonder if
that caller questions anything she sees on the
6:30 news, or only when it doesn't fit her agen-
da, or does she merely prove the age-old adage
"You can fool some of the people all the time?"
Is the caller aware that in the 1970s the 6:30
news hyped the threat of global cooling? To
prove it, they even showed us photos of ice
freezing! Real ice! Devastatingly cold ice! Was
she convinced by that?
I wonder if the caller ever considered that
the film may have been shot in the summer, at
a time when ice is known to melt, but not
shown to us until the dead of winter? Did the
reporter verify the time stamp and location of
the film, or was the reporter also forwarding
an agenda? Was that ice melting in the Arctic
or Antarctic? After all, ice melts every year in
both places, one during our summer, the other
during our winter.
Did the 6:30 news inform her that warming is
cyclical, minimal, now declining, and that five
of the 10 coldest years on record (according to
NASA and the 6:30 news) were way back in the
1930s?
Al Gore says it will take 100 years for Mother
Nature to unleash her wrath and punish us
evil humans for this "man-made" catastrophe,
and, of course, Al Gore is not stupid. He choos-
es his words wisely He knows that in 100 years,
when we eventually learn it was nothing but a
hoax, he and his power-hungry, fear-mongering
pals will be long gone, and no longer running
for president or a Nobel Peace Prize.

Which brings me back to the
Jeep.
When I arrived at the air-
port, it was 17 degrees and get-
ting colder. I picked up the keys
and headed to the rental car
parking lot to find my four-
wheel-drive vehicle. There
wasn't much snow on the
ground, but there was ice and it
was cold.
I had to walk all around the
parking lot to find the Jeep,
and when I did I jumped in and
tried to start the car up to get
the heat working.
My fingers were numb from
the cold, and I had difficulty fit-
ting the key into the keyhole. I
kept sticking the key in and it
just didn't feel right.
I rubbed my hands together
and tried again.
It still didn't work.
Someone got into the Jeep

fees here.
By refusing to temporarily
lower our county's stiff impact
fees, commissioners are refus-
ing to feed a tiny morsel of
goodness to a significant con-
stituency that they were elect-
ed to represent.
As reported Friday, Citrus
County's unemployment has
hit 5.7 percent, up from 3.5 per-
cent in 2006. There are thou-
sands of would-be workers who
had paychecks, food on the
table and the means to make
mortgage payments and con-
tribute to our ad valorem cof-
fers not so long ago. Now
they're going to the Family
Resource Center and other
charitable outlets, getting con-
tributed cans for pork-and-
beans to feed the family
Don't believe it? Go there.
There's no arguing that
retirees and those with steady
work but five-digit annual
incomes can't rationalize
another hit on their bank


next to mime, started the car
right up, and took off.
I felt like a dope. Why could-
n't I get my Jeep started? I am a
Jeep owner this was my com-
fort zone, my car of choice.
I thought for a moment that I
got into the wrong car, so I
climbed out into the freezing
night and tried the door gizmo.
That worked just fine.
I got back in the car and tried
the key again.
It still didn't work.
I was in the distant corner of
the parking lot and it was cold.
And now I was cranky.
I had no choice but to walk
back across the parking lot in
the 17-degree weather and go
look for help.
I finally spotted a worker and
asked him for some assistance.
He was a black 20-something,
and he wore his ball cap to one
side. He had a couple of gold

accounts if impact fees were
reduced and compensating
dollars were sought elsewhere.
Still, John Q. Citizen has to
adapt his lifestyle to a shifting
economy, so county govern-
ment should do the same -
both in internal operations for
those it serves.
Citizens voicing opposition
to temporarily lowered impact
fees at Tuesday's commission
meeting were self-assured. In
the hour or so that I listened to
comments from the audience,
those opposing lowered rates
offered little sympathy for their
struggling neighbors.
Those imploring the commis-
sion for a temporary reduction
in the fees often had trembling
voices and real-life stories to
tell. The majority on our com-
mission seemed unmoved.
Opponents to lowering the
fees rightfully noting that
the construction industry is
suffering from a nationwide
trend are correct in that an

ers can't see fit to offer a little
help.
At the meeting, an opponent
of lowered fees said there's
plenty of existing homes on the
market, so we don't need more
built.
A proponent countered that
we have vacant homes on the
market because so many peo-
ple have had to leave for
employment elsewhere.
Another opponent to lowered
fees correctly noted that, histor-
ically, construction workers
have had to migrate to where
work is plentiful. My hunch is
that many who could easily do


very upset about that.
Let us take a vote on
this, OK?
Drop gas tax
OK, you ... Citrus
County commission-
ers, it's time that you
had your fun end.
Remove the 6-cents-a-
gallon gas tax and
catch up with every-
body else in the mod-
ern world.


Dirty flags
It concerns me today with all
the returning veterans and all
the signs and the billboards
and stuff we're putting up for
them, which is beautiful. I'm
retired military myself, but it
offends me to no end to see
people with dirty flags. And the

He gave me a funny look and
said: "I'm leaning toward Mike
Huckabee. I like his positions
on health care and the idea of
having a man in the White
House who is not afraid to say
he is a Christian."
He made me blink.
I don't even know Mike
Huckabee's stand on health
care. Turns out my helper at
the rental car parking lot was a
political science student at the
University of Louisville and he
was earning money so he could
go on to law school.
He was a Republican. He
was conservative. And he knew
more about the candidates'
positions than I did.
And he also knew how to get
my Jeep started.
It turns out that you don't use
the keys to start the Jeep any-
more. There was plastic gizmo
attached to the key ring that

so have done so primarily
single men yet those with
kids in school, mortgage pay-
ments and roots in the comlmu-
nity want to stick it out After
all, even some pessimists spec-
ulate that the economy will
bounce back in a year or so.
Here are some of the com-
ments by those feeling the fees
should have been temporarily
lowered:
N A guy who wanted to open a
paintball business on a 29-acre
field in the Crystal River area
said he balked when told he'd
have to pay more than $1 mil-
lion in impact fees. He went to
Marion County, paid $43,000 in
fees and the business is doing
fine, thank you (for nothing).
Another said please just
lower the fees for two years to
get us through this rough time.
The aforementioned
woman who said there are so
many re-sale houses on the
market because people have
moved on noted that her hus-


most ridiculous objectionable
thing I have on my mind is that
people who will wear clothing
that's made to look like it's
part of an American flag.
Complete violation of the flag
code.
Who takes flags?
Please publish location of
where the people can take their
tattered, worn flags.
Alternating climates
One of your callers said
2007 was the hottest year on
record. When did records
start?...Why don't you listen to
the real scientists instead of ...
Gore? Every 10,000 to 20,000
years there's global warming,
and every other 10,000 to
20,000 years there's global
freezing.

you now stick in the ignition. It
involves computers and other
such things.
I grumbled about new tech-
nology, the lack of instructions
and the fact that I was still
standing outside in 17-degree
temperatures.
"I know it's tough on you old
guys to understand this new
stuff," the political science stu-
dent told me as he began to
walk away
He then stopped, turned, and
said, "I bet you're a John
McCain supporter You old guys
tend to stick together."
That hurt

During the construction
boom, one speaker noted, the
county jacked up the impact
fees. The boom went bust but
the fees are still jacked way up.
One man simply said,
"How hard is it for you to reach
out and help someone?"
Apparently too hard for our
county commissioners. They're
out of touch with the living hell
some of their own citizens are
experiencing. They are unwill-
ing to stab even the tiniest
morsel of financial relief with
their big, long fork to feed some
hope and a sliver of relief to
these people until good times
return to Citrus County.

Wild with motorcycles
It's Thursday afternoon. I'd like to
know if we can get a sheriff's
deputy down here on (State Road)
200 somewhere and get some of
these motorcycles that fly in and
out of Tanglewood subdivision. I
mean I wait early in the morning
with my children at the bus stop
and these kids are wild with these
motorcycles. I wish they would try
to set some kind of a trap down
here and give these people a ticket
or take their license away from
them. It would be most appreciated.


563-(


Taking motorcycles
I'd like to comment on the "Unfair for bikers."
I happen to agree, riding a motorcycle myself. I
think it's completely ludicrous. Obviously, when
the government doesn't have enough money for
itself, it has to result from taking property from
those who can't afford to fight the system.
What's next? If you walk on the wrong side of
the sidewalk, are they going to take your legs? I
think it's unconstitutional to take property away
from somebody for something as trivial as a
wheelie. I think there are more important issues
that we should be worrying about. If you do a
wheelie, you're going to get a ticket and a fine
anyway, and possibly, you know, other charges.
So why take away somebody's property, too? I
think that's just another way for the government
to create revenue enhancement.
Landfill jaunt
I just read in the newspaper where folks are
going to the landfill to look at bald eagles and
gulls and such and vultures. I mean, you know,
these folks can fork out $20 and actually get a
boat ride out into the Chassahowitzka National
Wildlife Refuge and see not only eagles, but
dozens of other wildlife in their own environ-
ment. I just can't see going to a smelly landfill.
Well, it's just my own personal opinion. Good
luck bird watching.
Table manners
*T~Lib- tn hnr k 1 l t lwd rowrf Ming un


1% wm %


Laying a nasty napkin on the table is
disgusting. Excuse yourself and go
to the restroom to cough up conges-
tion or clear sinuses. Also, those who
are guilty of leaving Hir, r gauze and
tape on the table after early a.m.
blood draws need to wait and dis-
pose of it at home, not at the table
in a public restaurant. Once again,
you're expecting a waitress to pick it
up and dispose of it for you.


0579 Burning neighbors
I live in a condo ... The road lead-
ing to the condo has a mobile
home on the right. Almost every day, the owners
are burning. The smell and smoke drifts over to
the condos and it's awful. The other night, the
fire flame from the burning can was seen from
the condo at about 11:30 in the evening. Just
thought the place was on fire. What do we do?
Whom do we call? We don't want to bring the
police or the fire department out unnecessarily,
but we are very, very close to this mobile home
... It makes us very nervous. How can we stop
this? Thank you for any help that we can get.
Editor's note: Call Citrus County Fire Rescue at
527-5406 for advice.
Too many congressmen
I see in the paper where we might have more
congressmen added to the state of Florida.
That's the last thing we need is bigger govern-
ment. Congress makes the most money, has the
best benefits and everything. It costs the taxpay-
ers a fortune for each congressperson. It's ridicu-
lous. And then they retire with $70,000 or
$80,000 a year. That is astronomical. They
shouldn't retire with more than $30,000 or
$40,000 a year, if that. The people living off the
tax rolls, who get the money from the public
taxes, make the most money, have the best bene-
fits and everything. It's a rip-off. The private sec-
tor doesn't make near that type of money, except
CEOs, and have them kind of benefits. They're
ripping off the public. Why can't they live like the
average American? It would save us a fortune in
tax money that can be used other places.

COME N TARY


Think of future
Voting "no" on Amendment 1
is the right thing to do tbr our
children, schools and communi-
ty. The amendment benefits
only a few people. The real
impact would be financially
devastating to Citrus County.
The average homeowner
would save only about $240 a
year, which is about $20 a
month or 66 cents a day If you
were going to sell your home,
you might see some benefit
from the proposed amendment
Another down side is that it
penalizes people wanting to buy
homes in Florida, making them
pay higher property taxes than
their neighbors and discourag-
ing new homeowners.
This past year, Florida had a
revenue shortfall of $1.1 billion,
which resulted in a reduction of
funding to the counties. There
is already an increased state
revenue shortfall projected of
almost $2 billion expected for
2008, which will result in even
less money coming to the coun-
ties. This is before the proposed
amendment is figured into the
equation.
Because of last year's state
revenue shortfall, Citrus County
schools had their 2007-08 budg-
et reduced by $1.6 million by
the state. With an increased
shortfall of almost $2 billion
expected for 2008, Citrus
County expects to see an even
greater funding reduction for
the 2008-09 school year This is
regardless of whether the
amendment passes.
If it passes, it is projected that
during the next five years our
schools will lose about $19.6
million from state funding; 2008
$1.5 million; 2009 $2.8 mil-
lion; 2010- $3.9 million; 2011


- $5,1 million; and 2012 $6.3
million.
Also it needs to be remem-
bered that Citrus County is one
of the few counties in Florida
that does not float bonds to sup-
port its schools. With a contin-
ued loss of revenue to the
schools, this could have to
change.
The projected cuts to schools
and commission budgets would
result in a loss of about $60.9
million for Citrus County during
the next five years. The losses to
our quality of life makes this a
bad bargain.
Is all that worth 66 cents a day?
Vote "no" on Amendment 1.

President, Citrus County
Education Association (CCEA)

Amendment misleads
Amendment 1 on the ballot
for the Jan. 29 election is the
most misleading piece of legis-
lation ever contrived by the
Tallahassee brain drain.
It is hyperbole at its best
If you go to your county
appraiser's Web site
(www.pa.citrus.fl.us), you will
find a calculator that shows
your savings on your property
under this proposed legislation.
This calculation is based on
optimum financial assumptions.
My calculated savings would
not pay for a weekend at a
decent hotel.
This amendment's propo-
nents keep stressing the porta-
bility factor of this proposed
law.
The main benefactors of
portability in Amendment 1 are
guess who?
Real estate agents, builders


and developers!
Big surprise.
Now you know why these par-
ticular industries spend so
much time and money in
Tallahassee.
Don't be fooled. Vote no on
Amendment 1.

Living creatures
Often people feel they must
give up their pets for various
reasons. On this Web site,
http://www.wonderpuppynet/ca
nwehelp/index.html, you'll
hopefully find some alternatives
and be able to keep your ani-
mal. There also is lots of info
here for those who would never
dream of giving up their pet, but
just need some advice about
basic pet problems. They are
often the very same problems
for both groups of people.
First and foremost, pets are
living creatures, capable of fear,
love, pain, loneliness and joy
They should never be consid-
ered disposable property, for
they should be considered
members of the family
There are many reasons peo-
ple feel they must give up their
animals. If you can find a solu-
tion to the problems, and help
make your pet a member of the
family in good standing, that's
one less animal that needs res-
cuing, and both the animal and
humans will be happier If the
problems cannot be resolved,
there is information to help you
find a good home for your pet
But, please try to resolve the
problems first, it might cost your
pet his or her life otherwise.

AARP Tax-Aide offers services Feb. 1

For other reasons, poet T. S.
Eliot called April "the cru-
elest month," but he might
just have well been referring
to the dreaded American rite
of late winter/early spring -
tax return preparation.
For those who prepare
their own individual tax
returns with angst and anxi-
ety, there is hope. It's called
AARP (American Association
of Retired Persons) Tax-Aide.
Tax-Aide is the nation's
largest volunteer-run, free tax
assistance/preparation and
transmittal service. It is
designed for low and middle-
income taxpayers, with spe-
cial attention to those age 60
and older. Last year the all-
volunteer Citrus chapter
helped more than 7,000 tax-
payers and filed 3,857 returns,
logging 7,000-plus volunteer
hours. It expects to top that
this year.
The Citrus County Tax-Aide
group will begin offering serv-
ices to residents Feb. 1 at nine
different sites throughout the
county (see accompanying
sites and times). The free
services will be offered until
April 15, the Internal Revenue
Service's deadline for sending
in tax returns. Returns are
done paperless, by computer,
and filed electronically, which
speeds the whole process.


FOR MORE
INFORMATION
Taxpayers can get infor-
mation about Tax-Aide
and answers to question
online at:
www.aarp.org/taxaide or
call (800) 424-3410.

Nine locations
This year for the first time,
the local counselors will be
available on Saturdays at the
Citrus Memorial Share Club
Auditorium (adjacent to Citrus
Memorial hospital). Tax-Aide
is also again offering counsel-
ing at the Citrus Springs
Community
Center, a cen-
ter the group
said unfortu-
nately has do any
been previ-
ously under- paid p
u t i i z ed ,
though it can d(
hopes the cen-
ter will be Christin
more used this about the Tn
tax season.
Also new
this year,; Tax-Aide will try
some Spanish language sup-
port in doing tax returns at the
Homosassa Library. The site
that formerly was at the Elks
Club on Grover Cleveland
Boulevard will now be at the
Homosassa Library.
Those interested in assis-
tance do not have to be an


r



a;


AARP member or be 60 or
older, though the group targets
residents in that age group to
assist. The group does not do
business-type or agricultural
returns and has specific guide-
lines from the IRS on what
kinds of returns it can pre-
pare, according to Christine
McMillan, the Citrus district
coordinator for Tax-Aide.
Counselors can do individ-
ual returns that include, for
instance, a home sale. capital
gains, interest, fund and pen-
sion disbursement considera-
tions, but if a person has rental
property income, for example,
Tax-Aide will refer them to
paid tax preparers.
Tax-Aide
counselors
also file the
Ve can returns elec-
thintg a tronically and
,h.,,n a will arrange
reparer for a direct
deposit of a
refund in a
person's bank
account.
e : The Citrus
x-Aide volunteers, group has
been serving
the community for about 20
years. "We can do everything a
paid preparer can do,"
McMillan said. Counselors are
well trained, she said, and
must be re-certified each year
(see training below).

Nature Coast EMS
signs with new client
Citrus Networking Solutions
Group Inc. announced recently that
Nature Coast EMS has signed on
to be its newest client. CNSG will
be maintaining Nature Coast
EMS's computer network, support-
ing desktops and servers with
upgrades as needed to ensure that
everything operates smoothly. In
addition, CNSG will be installing an
internal email system, and manag-
ing the computer portion of Nature
Coast EMS's move to a new
administration building in the com-
ing year.
Nature Coast EMS is the first
new client to benefit from CNSG's
new Bronze-Silver-Gold levels of
turnkey "24/7" service. This new
system allows clients to sign up for
a flat monthly fee, and CNSG han-
dles the rest, making sure that the
client's network is secure and
working the way it's supposed to.
Each .level of service is appropriate
for networks of different sizes... a
client with three networked com-
puters might need only the
"Bronze" level, while a large com-
pany with several dedicated
servers would likely need the
"Gold" level.
Citrus Networking Solutions
Group, Inc. (CNSG) was founded
by Teresa Bell, MCSE, in 2003.
Since then, it has rapidly grown to
become Citrus County's largest
computer networking service
provider. CNSG is a Microsoft-cer-
tified partner and the first and only
Microsoft-certified small business
specialist in the Citrus County
area. All staff are Microsoft and A+
certified computer network profes-
sionals, and follow two key busi-
ness philosophies: courteous and
professional customer service, and
preventative maintenance to
ensure clients can always rely on
their IT infrastructure.
Rehab center
changes name
The Sports & Orthopedic Rehab
Team (SPORT) center at Beverly
Hills 3400 N. Lecanto Highway and
Inverness 302 S. Line Ave. has a
new name. On Jan. 1, our center
began operating under the name
of Select Physical Therapy. As you
may recall, our parent company
Select Medical Corporation
acquired the HealthSouth out pa-
tient rehabilitation division in May
2007. These centers were transi-
tioned to the Select Physical
Therapy name last July.
To ensure consistency through-
out West Coast of Florida in 2008,
the SPORT centers also transi-
tioned to the Select Physical
Therapy name. We are excited
and proud to have a strong, united
presence and by joining forces, it
allows us to maximize best prac-
tices and enhance our clinical and
service delivery. Our expanded net-
work also will provide greater
access to those who need high-
quality, results-oriented care.
Although our name has
changed, our commitment to you
and your patients will not change.

community libraries, and they
and most sites will be set up
for appointment counseling,
though a few, such as the
Moose Club on U.S. 19 south of
Crystal River, and the Citrus
Springs center, will take walk-
ins.
How it works
At the five appointment
sites, taxpayers must come in
first to set an appointment.
They will be given an intake
form to fill out and will be set
up with a time and day to
return (appointments can't be
set by phone). Most appoint-
ments are set up for an hour
but often don't take that long,
McMillan said.
The taxpayers will be
instructed to return with a
filled-out intake form, as well
as last year's tax return, a
Social Security card (and
cards for each dependent
child), a valid picture ID, W-2s
and 1099s (and proof of other
income) and receipts and tax
records for the tax yeai:
When they return for the
appointment, the counselor
will review the intake form to
make sure the person fits the

Beginning in early February, Tax-Aide volunteers will be providing free tax help around the county.


scope of the program and then
begin to go through the return
with the taxpayer.
The counselors use laptops
and the software recommend-
ed by the IRS. When they are
finished, another counselor
checks the return. It is then


sent electronically to the IRS,
a method which speeds up the
process. Taxpayers can also
elect to have returns sent right
to the bank accounts.
The counselors keep nothing
except the signature form,
which, because the return is


done with software, the tax-
payer signs in lieu of a paper
form. All information is confi-
dential. The Tax-Aide program
does not accept money.
Donations to the foundation
are accepted, but only at the
Washington, D.C. headquar-


ters.
Because the counselors are
not financial advisers, they
don't advise taxpayers on
financial choices but guide
them through the returns and
show them options.
The final responsibility for
the return lies with the taxpay-
er, and the counselors would
not represent a taxpayer in
front of the IRS, for example,
in an audit, so it's critical for
the taxpayer to make sure the
information provided for the
return is accurate and com-
plete.
Volunteers' training
McMillan said this year the
local volunteer Tax-Aide group
is 120 strong and a very impres-
sive group of professionals
from all walks of life.
Volunteers are trained and
must show proficiency in the
software and pass an IRS certi-
fication.
The IRS has provided the
software and 50 percent of the
cost for the laptops.
Volunteers are expected to
counsel tbfour hours once a week
for the 12-week tax season,
though most volunteers do it
twice a week, according to Wes
Brockway, the technical coordi-
nator and longtime member of
the group.
Volunteers who want to


become preparers get an
intense course from knowledge-
able veteran instructors,
McMillan said. First off, the vol-
unteers have about five days of
reading and learning tax law.
Then they get an in-depth,
hands-on class of lecture and
work on the software.
"It's a very intense experience
for them," McMillan said.
Because the Citrus Tax-Aide has
gone to computer-generated
returns, recruiting for the volun-
teers has begun to include the
dimension of computer literacy.
Brockway said in a communi-
ty like Citrus, many of the ques-
tions counselors get revolve
around retirement issues, such
as pension funds and Social
Security, and counselors are
glad to help the taxpayer with
questions, as well as do the
return for them.
Volunteers find various
rewards in being a counselor,;
from learning the tax laws very
well to meeting many people.
The common thread, however,; is
simple: "We enjoy helping peo-
ple," McMillan said. "It is very
satisfying."
Most of the taxpayers appear
to be satisfied, too, Brockway
said, because there is a 75 per-
cent return each year, and very
often the taxpayer asks for the
same counselor


We sincerely thank you for the trust
and confidence you extend to us
each time we receive a patient
referral. We look forward to contin-
uing to work with you and your staff
to achieve excellent functional out-
comes. I welcome the opportunity
to meet with you and further dis-
cuss the services that Select
Physical Therapy can provide. In
the meantime, if you have any
questions, please do not hesitate to
contact Joye Nottage, PT at the
Beverly Hills site (527-8489) or
Shana Lamphere, PTA at the
Inverness site (341-3470).
Hooper qualifies
for recertification
Lowell W. Hooper, CFSP of
Inverness, has recently qualified for
recertification of the designation of
Certified Funeral Service
Practitioner (CFSP), by the
Academy of Professional Funeral
Service Practice.
A number of professions grant
special recognition to members
upon completion of specified aca-
demic and professional programs
and "CFSP" is funeral service's
national individual recognition.
To initially receive this award, the
practitioner must complete a 180-
hour program of continuing educa-
tion activities and events. In addi-
tion, the practitioner is required to
accumulate 20 hours per year to
recertify. Credits are awarded by
the Academy for work leading to
personal and/or professional
growth in four areas: academic
activities; professional activities;
career review (for retroactive cred-
it); and community and civic activi-
ties.
Certified Practitioners may use
the CFSP designation with their
names for business letterheads,
professional cards and other appro-
priate uses. Certification is for indi-
viduals only and is not used to
imply certification of a firm.
Information about Academy
membership and certification may
be obtained by contacting: Kimberly
A. Gehlert, Executive Director,
Academy of Professional Funeral
Service Practice, P.O. Box 2275,
Westerville, OH 43086; (614) 899-
6200, www/apfsp.com.
