Michele Bass says goodbye to fellow Crystal River police officer Sgt. David DeCarlis Thursday at shift change. At 12:01 a.m. Friday, the Citrus County Sheriff's
Office took over law enforcement for the city of Crystal River.

T he last shifts were calm,
almost dead.
There were some pit bulls loose
near Copeland Park and a couple
of traffic stops.
As Crystal River goes, maybe
slower than usual. But not
uneventful.
Midnight loomed. Soon they go
10-7 a police department code
for "out of service."
First, though, their job.


Sgt. Dave DeCarlis isn't a sentimen-
tal guy. Or if he is, he's not one to show
it.
Thursday, he went to the Crystal
River Police Station to finish up and
tie up any loose ends.
DeCarlis, 39, and the three-man
Delta Squad were on the night shift.
But rather than the typical 12-hour
day, the men began at 6 p.m. and would
be released at midnight.
That's when the Crystal River Police
Department officially dissolved and
the Citrus County Sheriff's Office took
over law enforcement duties in the
city.
DeCarlis has always liked working
the night shift and has developed a
strict code for his team while on duty.
They need to stay visible.
The night patrol is about maintain-
ing a presence in neighborhoods and
business areas to scare off would-be
burglars and vandals.

writhing in pain. He remem-
bers nothing of the Dec. 8 truck
accident last year on State
Road 200 that badly injured his
pelvic area. He has survived
multiple surgeries since the
crash and lived through a bout
with flesh-eating bacteria.
But the challenges that lay
ahead for Gerkovich and his
wife, Jamie, and their two chil-
dren, will involve more than
just healing his battered body.

Gerkovich, who works for the
Sumter County School Board
as a special education teacher,
has coached soccer for 25
years, but may never work
again as a teacher or a coach.
His friend, Gary Wadley, said
the flesh-eating bacteria that
devoured much of the soft tis-
sue and muscle on his hips and
lower back will leave him
unable to work again.
"This man should be dead.
He was thrown from his truck.
He laid on the side of the
road," Wadley said. "That
man's life will never be the
same."
Wadley said Gerkovich has
applied for Social Security dis-
ability, but the federal benefits


won't be available until at least
July. Meanwhile, Wadley and
other friends, including
Nadine Humphries, have set
up the Vance Gerkovich Help

died in a car accident and ing
where a crazy man stabbed a tra
pawnshop owner with a samu- sai

DeCarlis has done it all -
murders, rapes, drug cases,
traffic deaths and suicides.
He once took a man down at
gunpoint after the man tried to
rape a woman and stabbed her
16 times. He can show you
where it happened.
"He was covered in blood
from head to toe," DeCarlis
said when he pointed out
where he encountered Alex
Whaley who is now serving
life in prison.
The strangest suicide he
ever worked involved a hus-
band and wife. The two made a
suicide pact, but didn't want to
die in their house because they
didn't want to leave a gruesome
mess for family members to
clean up. The couple rented a
motel room -in Crystal River
and placed plastic on the floor
to catch the blood. The hus-
band shot his wife and then
himself. They left a check in
the room for the motel to have
the carpet cleaned.
He's caught skinny dippers
at Hunter Springs Park and
once patrolled U.S. 19 on a jet
ski when the 1993 "no name"
storm rolled in.
"I could drive around here
blind. I've wracked up tens of
thousands of miles on these
streets," DeCarlis said.
Depending on the night, the
three night patrolmen may not
have time for breaks espe-
cially if it's when one of the
local nightclubs spills out
hordes of tipsy patrons.
"After all these years I'm get-
ting to the point of burnout,"
DeCarlis said. "It's like the
whole world's problems get
dumped in our lap."
Unlike many the majority of
his co-workers who are taking
jobs with the sheriff's office,
DeCarlis plans to take a job
with the Florida Highway
Patrol but not because he
dislikes the sheriff's office.
He plans to retire in seven
years and would prefer work-
ing traffic incidents to domes-
tic batteries, burglaries, drug
cases and the other everyday
occurrences.
"It's nothing against the sher-
iff, it's just not for me any-
more," DeCarlis said.


When DeCarlis saw a dead
raccoon Thursday night on a
dark road near the Crystal
River Mall, he pulled over,
grabbed some rubber gloves
and dragged the carcass to the


nearby woods. While dealing
th road kill may not be the
ost glamorous part of his job,
s important to keep roads

e small raccoon body could
nd an unsuspecting motorcy-
st spinning. Also, when vul-
res descend as part of
other Nature's cleanup crew,
Ly could be hit by a car.

izens to contact during the
transition has been an issue,
Coleman said. Many times,
he'll give residents his busi-
ness card with phone number
and e-mail, but after Friday the
e-mail address would no longer
work Neither would his cell
phone.
When he talked to one of his
informant's Thursday after-
noon, Coleman gave the person
his personal Yahoo e-mail
address. Afterward, he pulled
out a business card and point-
ed to all his contact informa-
tion.
"In another eight hours, it
won't mean anything," he said.
The officers who decided to
take jobs with the sheriff's
office will spend about two
weeks completing training.
Many of the newer officers will


make about $5,000 more a year
than they do now. That's in
addition to generous severance
packages from the city.
The deal is great for many of
the officers, but there are some
down sides.
While Coleman will make
the same amount of money that
he did with the police depart-
ment, he will lose his status as
a sergeant and become a com-
munity resource officer.
"Yes, I'm actually getting
demoted, which is a shame,"
Coleman said.
He also goes from five weeks
a year of vacation to two weeks.
But in the end, Coleman is
glad he has a job and is thank-
ful that his retirement package
remains the same. He plans to
retire in 14 years and he appre-
ciates his job.


"The sheriff has made it real-
ly easy for us," Coleman said.
As a community resource
officer, he will no longer do the
routine patrols in Crystal
River, but rather act as a liai-
son. He'll attend city council
meetings on behalf of the sher-
iff's office, help plan communi-
ty events and identify crime
trends and law enforcement
needs.
Coleman isn't the only one
who will remain in Crystal
River.
Detective Corey Sharpe will
remain a Crystal River detec-
tive. Sharpe is a 19-year veter-
an of CRPD.
Administrative assistant
Martha Langston and payroll
supervisor Sarah Siner both
who have been with CRPD for
about 28 years will also


remain in the same building in
similar roles for the sheriff.
"I hate to see it going, but I'm
still working here," Coleman
said. "The things I'm losing are
my stripes and the uniform. I'm
still going to be out here work-
ing in the community."
Like many of the CRPD offi-
cers, Coleman worked for the
sheriff's office for a short stint
Officer Michele Bass worked
there as a dispatcher and tran-
scriber. Officer Derek
Patterson spent some time
there as a deputy.
Coleman and Sharpe also
worked on the county's drug
task force for a few years,
which required close collabo-
ration with the sheriff's drug
unit

CRPD's reign over the city of
Crystal River came to a quiet close
Thursday night. The police depart-

service and surrendered control to
the Citrus County Sherrif's Office at
12:01 a.m. Friday morning.

"We've both got really good
working relationships with
them," Coleman said.
He dismissed that there is any
rivalry between the two agen-
cies.
As for the changeover:
Coleman said he's been too busy
to focus on it
In the past week, Coleman
and Bass wracked up about 20
hours each of overtime on the
David Miller burglary case.
Miller was found to have stolen
thousands of dollars worth of
items from across the county.
"I think I was too tired to real-
ly think about it," Coleman said.
"This whole week has just been
busy."
Shortly after, one of the vic-
tims from the burglary case
came to pick up some of the stuff
the officers were able to recover.
:Crystal River resident
Michael Pace was able to collect
drills, a saws-all and flashlight
that were taken from his locked
car a few days after Christmas.
S"Man, I can't believe that,"
Pace said, checking out the
tools, delighted none were dam-
aged. The only thing the officers
didn't find at the burglar's house
were the two guns Pace bought
for his sons.
But nonetheless, Pace was
pleased.
Later, patrolling the streets
near Crystal River High School
Coleman stopped to talk to a
man walking along his dog along
Northeast 13th Terrace.
"So you're about to become a
sheriff's deputy," the man said
talking into Coleman's patrol
window. "Congratulations."

Bass spent a part of Thursday
talking to residents upset about
pit bulls on the loose.


It was a quiet shift, but she
didn't mind.
Bass, 34, has been with CRPD
for two years. Before that she
worked as a transcriber and dis-
patcher for the sheriff's office.
Bass, a single mother, wanted to
become a deputy, but there were
no openings at the sherit's
office once she finished with the
law enforcement academy
That's when she made the
switch to CRPD.
As an officer at a smaller
agency, Bass believes she was
allowed to be involved with
cases she would have had to
wait years to be a part of with a
larger agency
In fact, the recent burglary
case was Bass' first opportunity
to write and submit a search
warrant a task typically
reserved for senior staff mem-
bers. CRPD officers also write
their own reports and assist in
most major cases.
"It's definitely given me the
experience and given me the
opportunity for growth," Bass
said.
Unlike Coleman and Sharpe,
Bass and the other officers will
be spread out across the county
and won't be allowed to work
the Crystal River beat for about
a year
Working for the sheriff in the
past, Bass said she knows the
employees work like a family,
but she'll miss the closeness of
such a small agency.
Bass planned to spend
Thursday night taking her
CRPD patches from her uni-
form. She'll miss the job, but her
duties are the same.
"If I can help one person to
make a difference that's the
reward for me," Bass said.

Langston admitted she tried

So did Officer Gordon

and a handful of sheriff's offi-

"You've got a fantastic organi-

when her new boss gave her a
hug. "It's just sad," she told
Dawsy
The Delta Squad finished up
some last-minute details at the
station. It was time to turn in
badges, uniforms and anything
else that belonged to CRPD.
DeCarlis changed into civil-
ian clothes and slipped his keys


under an office door
"Hey can you sign off
already?" he asked Patterson
and Pinner.
The three went outside to use
the police radios since they
have a hard time getting recep-
tion in building. It took just a
few seconds for the men to call

was over
It was a simple moment that
passed by without tears for the
past, but was an important one.

ished, but so was the police

QUESTIONS
Continued from Page 1A

renewed annually unless either
side wants to cancel it.
Q: Why did the city council con-
tract with the sheriff?
A: Simply, to save money. A
majority of council members saw
the potential for a huge tax savings
if the sheriff took over law enforce-
ment duties. The sheriff presented
a proposal that saved the city
about $500,000 in the first full year,
while still providing service at or
exceeding city police levels.
Q: When did the switch take
place?
A: The change occurred at mid-
night Thursday. The transition was
seamless, Sheriff Jeff Dawsy said.
Q. What happened to the
CRPD employees?
A. Sixteen of the CRPD staff
members are taking jobs with the
sheriffs office. This includes a
detective, 12 officers and two
records clerks. CRPD officers start
at$30,246 and sheriff deputies
begin at about $35,000 the dif-
ference means five of the officers
will get pay raises. One other appli-
cation from an officer is pending
.completion of all the paperwork.
Three employees didn't apply to
the sheriffs office. One has
applied with the Florida Highway
Patrol, another is a registered
nurse and will begin working as
one and.Chief Steven Burch has
applied for a chief position at the
Dade City-Police Department.
Of CRPD's 11 crossing guards,
all but three have applied for the
same position with the same pay
with the sheriffs office. The sher-
iff's office has filled the remaining
three positions within the city.
As for severance packages,
everyone gets one. Officers who
took jobs with the sheriffs office
get two months' severance to


how to get in touch with the
Congresswoman to remedy a
problem, offer general assistance
and information, and outline what
services are available through the
office.
For directions, call 527-5411.
CHS class of 1988

Citrus High School Class of
1988 is planning its 20th reunion.

Lopez at 302-7837 or 637-3108.
Central Citrus Democratic Club
to meet
The Central Citrus Democratic
Club will meet at 11 a.m. Saturday,
Feb. 9, at the Central Ridge
Library.
Adelia and Dave Vachon from

ty, will be the featured topic.

From staff reports

and other benefits associated
with longevity. Employees who
did not take jobs with the sheriff's
office will receive three months'
severance pay. The chief will
receive four months' severance
oay. All employees will also col-
lect unused vacation pay and 25
percent of their unused sick pay.
Q: What happens to the
Crystal River Police Station?
A: It is now the new sheriff's
substation. The sheriff's office will
close its substation on State
Road 44 in Crystal River.
Q: What about the police cars
and police equipment?
A: The sheriffs office
absorbed all the equipment nec-
essary for its operations. Marked
sheriffs vehicles will include a
Crystal River logo, just as the
cars have a logo representing
coverage for the city of
Inverness.
Q: Will citizens and business-
es in Crystal River notice any
change?
A: Not really. Dawsy is prom-
ising service at or better than
what the CRPD delivered.
Former CRPD Sgt. Brian
Coleman is the sheriffs new
community resource officer for
Crystal River, so continue to
expect to see him around town
quite a bit.
Q: What about outside Crystal
River? How does this move affect
us?
A: No change from a tax
standpoint. Crystal River is pay-
ing for the additional manpower.
and equipment. Dawsy said the
fact that sheriff's office now over-
sees all law enforcement in the
county should mean a better flow
of communication and protection
countywide.

DAWSY
Continued from Page 1A

Crystal Rivei; rarely venturing
inside the city limits unless
their assistance was needed.
Now Dawsy's department
patrols all of Citrus, corner to
corner. As far as his deputies
are concerned, there are no
jurisdictional boundaries for
Inverness or Crystal River.
In an interview, Dawsy said
he didn't seek the Crystal
River arrangement But when
the, city council asked him to
submit a proposal, Dawsy said
he went right to it knowing the
partnership made good sense.
"We're not a county of
400,000 people," he said. "This
is a good time to build law
enforcement to serve the
entire community. This is the


time to do it."
Dawsy said he expects that
the successes from the sher-
iff's office 2004 takeover of
law enforcement in Inverness
will spill into Crystal River as
well.
One of the most important,
he said, is from having a com-
munity resource officer. In
Inverness, former police Lt.
Scott Roush moved to the
sheriff's office as the commu-
nity officer. Deputy Roush
patrols the same streets of
Inverness today as he did
before the sheriff's takeover.
Brian Coleman, who spent
18 years as a Crystal River
police officer, takes that com-
munity resource role as a
deputy in his city.
"Scotty had the pulse beat of
his community," Dawsy said.
"That was one of the reasons
we selected Brian. He is well


liked and well known."
The situation in Crystal
River, though, is different in
other ways. Unlike Inverness,
the county seat and home to
the sheriff's office, Crystal
River officials plan to scruti-
nize the sheriff's perform-
ance.
"We have a little bit more to
prove out there," Dawsy said.
"Crystal River is a priority to
us."
Dawsy proved that
Wednesday night with an
impressive showing at the
Crystal River City Council
meeting. Standing along the
council chamber walls were
the 24 deputies and supervi-
sors who are assigned to the
city.
Dawsy told the council that
each officer wanted the assign-
ment
"I didn't have to twist any


arms," Dawsy said. "I didn't
have to issue any extra bene-
fits. We had more than we
needed."
He introduced each by
name, and then presented
council members with a book-
let that included their photos
and short biographies.
Council members were
impressed. i
"I really feel that in the end
this will be a win-win for every-
one," Crystal River Mayor Ron
Kitchen said.
Dawsy, in an earlier inter-
view, said the sheriff's office
and Crystal River make a good
fit
"We understand there is a lot
of emotion tied to this," he said.
"This is the perfect opportuni-
ty to show that government is-
willing to change and,we c
save money while enhancing,
services at the same time."

Charles R. "Spig" Veal Jr. was

top computer in his patrol car.
He was fired and arrested on

and reckless driving. The
child abuse charge .was
dropped and the felony
assault charge was reduced to
a misdemeanor. He accepted
a plea deal in August 2002 and
was able to retain his law
enforcement certification.
In April 2007 officer Scott
Turner, a five-year veteran
Crystal River police officer,
resigned after being arrested
on charges of principal to
felon in possession of a
firearm and unlawful comput-
er access. Turner pleaded no
contest to the charges. He lost
his law enforcement certifi-
cate and was sentenced to
three years probation.
Murder, attempted rape
and a samurai sword
In 1995 retired New York
narcotics lieutenant Bob
Barchiesi came to serve as
chief. He wrote an autobio-
graphical book called "Rock
Solid" about he and a col-
league's obsessive manhunt
for a dangerous drug lord. He
had a tumultuous relationship
with the city council and once


threw a council member out
of his office. He eventually
resigned.
A year later Ray Kaminskas
came on board. Kaminskas
was a retired captain from the
Clearwater Police
Department. He is credited
with getting the department
computerized.
During Kaminskas' time as
chief, a Crystal River resident
and golf course greenskeeper
was shot near Port Paradise
Resort by Brian Keith Battle,
who was a Tampa electrician.
It began with pushing and
shoving at the nearby
Kokomo's Lounge. Battle went
to his hotel room, borrowed a
handgun from a co-worker,
went back to the bar and shot
Rodriquez Nelson in the back
of the head. Nelson was taken
to a Gainesville hospital and
died. Battle was convicted
and is serving life in prison.
Kaminskas got along with
council members, but later
accepted a chief position in
St Petersburg Beach. He died
in 2006 in High Springs where
he was a police chief.

Efficiency of Your Home!~i


Current councilman Jim
Farley served as police chief
from 1999 to 2003. Farley, from
West Palm Beach, brought
increased community patrols
to the department including a
horse and bike patrol.
Under Farley, the CRPD
worked two horrific cases.
In June of 2000 Crystal
River resident Jennifer
Johnson came home to find a
man had broken into her N.E.
Third Avenue apartment.
When she refused to have sex
with him, he stabbed her 16
times. Johnson survived the
attack and went on "The
Montel Williams Show" to tell
her story. Her attacker, Alex
Whaley, was convicted and is
serving life in prison.
One of the more odd cases
was in January 2001.
Wielding a samurai sword,
Kevin Fitzsimmons stormed
into Al Pawn & Jewelry on
U.S. 19. After a three-day wait-
ing period to purchase a gun,
owner Dave Phillips hesitated
when Fitzsimmons came back
for the gun, which is when the
customer attacked. Phillips


was stabbed several times, but
managed to grab a handgun
that he kept at the store for
protection. He shot Simmons
once in the head killing
him. Authorities investigating
the incident cleared Phillips
of any wrongdoing, and later
learned Fitzsimmons was
stalking a. weather anchor-
woman in Georgia.
Farley retired in 2003 and
then-assistant police chief
Gordon Rowland served until
current Chief Steven Burch
took the reigns in 2004. Burch
is credited with bringing more
traffic and community patrols
and obtaining a large grant for
a DUI unit. He also got CRPD
patrol cars computerized.
Information for this story was
collected from a variety of
sources. Longtime employees
Detective Corey Sharpe and
administrative assistant
Martha Langston provided
information. Court records,
the Department of
Corrections and archived
newspaper stories
were also used.

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.

priority for now.
Vance Gerkovich said he and
his wife are grateful for the
help of their church family at
Cornerstone Baptist Church,
their friends, neighbors and
community members who have
helped them through the crisis.
Their children, Hannah, a
ninth grader, and Timothy, a
seventh grader, have stayed
with family friends when their
mother was in Gainesville with
their dad. Even the family dog,
Kibbles, has spent a few nights
with friends.
"I want to thank the commu-
nity," Vance Gerkovich said
from his hospital bed. "A lot of
people in the community have
been helping out, as well as our
church family, and I thank
Jamie. She's been just great.
She's so strong."
Vance Gerkovich has spent
most of his adult life coaching
soccer He has worked in the
past at Pope John Paul
Catholic School as a gym
teacher as well as Westport
High School in Marion County
where he coached his soccer
team to the district champi-
onship.
On the night of the crash,
Jamie Gerkovich was following
her husband in a separate
vehicle. When they reached
Hernando in eastern Citrus
County, she took at left turn on
U.S. 41 and he took a right on
State Road 200. Jamie and her
daughter were planning a girls'
night out, she said, and were
going to stay with a girlfriend.
Not long after they went
their separate ways, a deer

(erkovich. He rolled his truck
when he attempted to avoid
hitting the deer. He managed to
miss the deer, but was thrown
from his truck as it flipped
over He may have been hit by
the truck. No one is certain.
Jamie Gerkovich and her
daughter went home the next
morning and were surprised to
find Vance wasn't there. They
figured he had left to buy the
morning paper. Nothing had
changed in the house. Jamie
and her daughter drove to
church, unaware her husband
had been critically injured the
night before.
The first news of the acci-
dent came when an official
with Shands Hospital left a
phone voice mail inquiring
about billing issues. Her hus-
band had already undergone
surgery by this time and had
been in the hospital for 12
hours. She rushed over to
Gainesville to be at his side.
At Shands Hospital, doctors
cut off the burned flesh caused
by Gerkovich sliding on the
asphalt pavement after he was
thrown free of his tumbling
truck, but they soon found
Gerkovich's lower back and
hips were being attacked by
flesh-eating bacteria necro-
tizing fasciitis.
Vance Gerkovich was unable
to carry on a coherent conver-
sation with his wife until about
two weeks ago, but they talk
now about what's important in
their altered state of living.
Jamie Gerkovich said her
immediate goal is to save their
home from mortgage foreclo-
sure. If she can accomplish


that, she can make the home
handicapped accessible for
her husband.
She has other goals that are
more emotional and spiritual
in nature.
"The object is not to let life
crumble," said Gerkovich, a
Citrus County school bus driv-
er. "My goal every day is to
complete a task that moves my
family forward financially and
emotionally. I'm a born again
Christian. I know God is always
with me. I know I couldn't have
done this without God."
She said she has received
support from Marilyn Farmer,
transportation director at the
school district and from co-
worker Donna Young. And
Cornerstone Baptist Church
members have been support-
ive. But the days remain chal-
lenging.
"I was at work this morning. I
got a call from Vance. He was
crying and upset," she said. "I
called someone at church and
asked them to pick my son up
at school, and they did."
Vance Gerkovich said he is
living his life in baby steps. He
is glad in some ways that he
can't remember what hap-
pened to him on the night of
the crash. He said he takes
comfort from reading the Bible
and from the visits he receives
from family, church and com-
munity members.
Both of his legs are in a cast.

Special to the Chronicle
Bill and Lorraine Coxwell of Hemando were able to take several trips abroad when they were
younger. They enjoy the memories of those wonderful places. Above, they are at the statue of "The
Little Mermaid." Being of Danish descent, Lorraine was thrilled to see the beautiful statue by the
sea but was saddened to learn that the statue had been vandalized several times by persons who
felt no love or respect for our "Ariel." Her head had been severed and the head she was wearing In
the picture was a relatively new one at the time of their visit.

and why it



matters.


The Heart and Vascular Center at Munroe has
an extraordinary record of achievement, with
more experience and better results than any
hospital from Gainesville to Orlando.


Through many years, it has grown in size and in
stature, with recognition in national studies and
in medical publications.


The time has come for the public profile of this
group to grow, as well.


It's important that people throughout the region
recognize that this is the premier cardiac care
facility in our area. If a distinct identity for our
Heart and Vascular team will help more people
to do that, and to turn to Munroe in times of
' -, ..need,.-then it's the right thing to do. Because it .-.
will save lives.


In fact, one study suggested that if every hospital
in America achieved the same results as Munroe,
more than 7,000 lives would be saved annually.


The new name for our Heart and Vascular team
is Munroe Heart. It represents the highest levels
of achievement in the cardiac field and an
unsurpassed level of dedication from each of the
people who are a part of it.


It also represents hope for every patient diagnosed
with a heart condition.

CITRUS COUN'Iv (FL) CHRONICLE


Legion Riders has many activities


IPS teacher recognized


Special to the Chronicle
Today there are more than 500
American Legion Riders groups organized
by legion posts, districts, or departments
in support of America, children and youth
programs in every state in the nation. It is
one of the fastest growing and most highly
visible of the many activities offered by
American Legion posts. The American
Legion Riders are as diverse as the pro-
grams that they support.
Director Fred Bernquist, American
Legion Post 155 in Crystal River, said the
American Legion Riders Chapter 155 is
one of the biggest in District 4 with more
than 65 Legion Riders.
What do American Legion Riders do?
American Legion Riders groups have
become some of the most generous and
creative supporters of the American
Legacy Scholarship Fund. Average
amounts raised each year are approach-
ing $250,000.
Riders meet and provide escorts for


military convoys returning servicemen
and servicewomen to their home stations
all over the country
American Legion Riders ride to raise
money for such organizations as VA. hos-
pitals, battered women and children's cen-
ters, children and youth programs, veter-
ans relief, needy families and many, many
others.
Riders have formed a national move-
ment that honors fallen comrades and pro-
tects the sanctity of military funerals and
memorial services across the country.
These motorcycle Honor Guards and cere-
monial teams highlight the special bonds
formed in the military service and the
motorcycling community.
M Legion Riders have also begun to
teach motorcycle and driver safety in the
community and in schools, in cooperation
with ABATE and other national motorcy-
cling organizations.
The American Legion Riders are com-
posed of members of the American Legion
family, including members, of the


American Legion, Auxiliary and Sons of
the American Legion. So if you ride a
motorcycle (or you do not ride and want to
help) and are a Legion member, an
Auxiliary member or member of the Sons
of the American Legion, you are also eligi-
ble for membership in the Riders.
To become a member of the American
Legion, here are the eligibility dates of
American military service:
World War I: April 6, 1917 through Nov. 11,
1918, World War II: Dec. 7,1941 through Dec.

Travel BRIEFS


Cape Cod inn
best buy
NEEDHAM, Mass. The
SeaCoast Inn in Hyannis, Mass.,
was named the "best bargain in
the world" in TripAdvisor's annual
"Travelers' Choice Awards."
The inn on Cape Cod is lauded
by consumers posting on
TripAdvisor as "fantastic," "immac-
ulate," "comfortable," and "quiet,"
with a perfect location and friendly
innkeepers. The inn is closed for
the season, but rates on the inn's
Web site at www.seacoastcape
cod.com are listed as $98-$148
summer, and $68-$108 spring and
fall (higher for holiday weekends).
Israel : 2007 best for
American tourism
TEL AVIV, Israel More
Americans visited Israel last year
than ever before.
In 2007, 529,000 Americans
made the trip, according to Arie
Sommer, Israel's tourism commis-
sioner for North and South
America. The previous record year
was 1999, when 515,000
Americans visited the country.
About 25 percent of all tourists
to Israel come from the U.S., with
the top five states of origin being
New York, California, New Jersey,
S Florida, Pennsylvania and Illinois.
Book gives tips for
traveling with children
NEW YORK Fawzia Rasheed
de Francisco, who has advised 16


governments and the United
Nations on health policy, started
traveling with her younger son
when he was two weeks old. Her
older son celebrated his first birth-
day on his fifth continent.
Now she's offering the wisdom
she accumulated during all those
travels with her children to the rest
of us in a new book called "The
Rough Guide to Travel with Babies
& Young Children" (Rough Guides,
$15.99).
Green makeover for
NYC zoos, aquarium
NEW YORK Saying it needs
to live up to its name, the Wildlife
Conservation Society is taking steps
to make the Central Park and Bronx
zoos and its other animal parks
more environmentally friendly.
In a release the organization
announced plans for a 30-percent
cut in its greenhouse gas emis-
sions by 2030.
The 112-year-old organization
conducts research and works to
protect rare and endangered ani-
mals in various places around the
world. Based at the Bronx Zoo, it
also operates the Central Park,
Prospect Park, Queens zoos and
New York Aquarium.
The society has calculated that
its power usage, heating, travel
and even paper consumption are
responsible for releasing a total of
about 34,000 metric tons of carbon
dioxide and other gases linked to
global warming each year.
The organization's efforts to


shrink its so-called carbon footprint
range from installing a water-sav-
ing system at the Bronx Zoo's sea
lion exhibit to altering that zoo's
power plant to use only natural
gas, rather than burning both
diesel fuel and natural gas.
A best time to buy
plane tickets?
NEW YORK If you're booking
airfare online, did you ever wonder
if it matters what day of the week
or what time of day you book?
The co-founder of Lessno.com,
a Web site that offers international
flights, says it does matter.
"Our experience with airlines has
shown us that they update avail-
able seats around 12 a.m. Eastern
time every day," said Assen
Vassilev, who is also the compa-
ny's CEO.
He added that weekend specials
are usually released Thursday
night. So, Vassilev said, late
Thursday night is a good time to
check for the best deals.

Don't tread on me


Sd T quit the gym and bought a treadmill," I
Told Carlton.
"Great," he said. "How much clothing
can you hang on it? They really free up
the closet space. I can get two suits and six
shirts on mine. I'm thinking of buying
another one for my sweaters."
Did I mention Carlton is trapped in
an unhappy marriage, breathes
through his mouth and is trapped in
the body of a middle-aged, balding '
man? I tried to straighten him out.
"It's not a clothes rack I really use XL
it. When I figured out how much it t:
was costing me to drive to the gym: a
gallon of gas every day plus the dues,
it just made sense to buy my own J
equipment"
"If you walked to the gym every day, MUE
you wouldn't be using any gas, and
when you got there, you wouldn't have to exer-
cise. You could just walk home," he said, pre-
tending to be rational. "You wouldn't need the
gym or the treadmill. And you'd be in better
shape. They have these new things now, they're
called 'sidewalks.' .You should try them some
time. You could have bought something nice,
like a giant, flat-screen HDTV instead of a tread-
mill." This is coming from a guy who can't see
his feet Did I mention Carlton has things like
"eat a salad," "find five more pall bearers" and
"read a book" on his to-do list?
"And if I had better friends, they wouldn't
think I'm using my treadmill as an armoire.
Have you tried walking anywhere in this town?
It's a death trap. It's like "Death Race 2000,"
where pedestrians are the targets. People in
cars are out to get you."
"That would make a great game!" Carlton
said.
"I think it's already been done. A few thou-
sand times. Never mind, I forgot who I'm talking
to. The last time you took a walk outdoors it was
to receive your high school diploma."
"That walk made up for all the gym classes I


LI


skipped. So, you've had the treadmill two weeks
now, how many times have you used it?
"A lot"
That is, twice. It took me one entire day just to,
get it out of the box. The next two days all my
muscles ached. I couldn't feel my fin.
S gers. It's hard to break those giant sta-
ples they use on packing boxes. And
S the thing must weigh 200 pounds
SThen I spent about a week putting it
together.
When I finally got it finished, Sue
Said she didn't want it in the middle
of the living room and asked me to,
Stake it upstairs and put it in my office,
Now, she tells me. So that was anoth-
gM er two days, taking it apart and
wrestling it up the stairs and putting
LEN it back together again. -.
I never had lower-back pain before;
but I've got it now. The money I'm saving on the
gym will probably go to a back specialist or: a
case ofBengay. ,
Finally, it was ready to go. I stepped on the
treadmill and started my 30-minute routine,
could feel the energy surge through my bocyi
that great feeling of the heart pumping, thej
blood flowing, the muscles warming up, the total
and complete boredom of walking in place. So I
turned on the financial news to check up on my4
IRA while I exercised. My financial guru was
telling Maria Bartiromo that small investors
shouldn't panic. When someone on Wall Street
says, "Don't panic," it means, "What's the use?,
We've already lost all your money." I
Can I get this treadmill back in the box? Will it
look like I used it? Can I return it and get my
money back? I'll need it for my leaden years0,
One more "buying opportunity" in the stock mar-
ket and I won't have to worry aboutretirement t
I won't have one. Thank goodness I exercised, I
can look forward to outliving my savings.

  • bladder ( control.

    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 right for you. It could be the
    most important call you'll ever make to restore an active,
    healthy lifestyle.

    Citrus wrestlers win district championship


    JONATHAN DEUTSCHMAN
    jdeutschman@chronicleonline.com
    Chronicle
    Another year, another wrestling
    season, another district title for
    Citrus. Sounds predictable enough,
    doesn't it?
    Not if you're a Hurricane.
    Out of the ten teams who assem-
    bled in Citrus Springs Middle
    School's gym Saturday for the
    District 1A-5 tournament, Citrus
    emerged the victor for the third
    time in as many years. The seeming-
    ly routine manner in which the
    Hurricanes have conquered nearly
    all comers this season belies the
    amount of effort the sport requires
    just to stay in the running, as well as
    the intensity of the competition.
    That intensity was on full display
    Saturday afternoon, with Hernando
    making itself known as the most
    potent challenger to Citrus' now-
    cemented dynasty. The Hurricanes

    River and Lecanto combined with
    the Hurricanes to make up exactly
    half of the field of 56 grapplers mov-

    one county representative in the top
    four. The three county teams also

    Citrus coach Mike Porcelli. "We're

    sunk in


    district


    title game

    There was so much going against
    Crystal River before Saturday night's
    District 4A-6 girls basketball champi-
    onship game.
    The Pirates were up against a very-
    talented West Port team, who were
    winners of 55 consecutive district
    games and
    vying for its
    sixth straight
    district crown.
    So when the
    Wolfpack came
    out and hit six
    three-pointers
    in the first
    quarter, Crystal
    River was facing a steep, uphill battle
    the rest of the way.
    West Port added a 56th straight dis-
    trict win en route to its sixth title dur-
    ing a 61-48 victory over the Pirates in
    Crystal River
    Crystal River (20-5 overall) still
    advances to the Class 4A regional
    playoffs, but will have to travel to face
    District 4A-5 winner St. Augustine on
    Thursday. West Port will host Port
    Orange Atlantic: .
    "They're relentless with their pres-
    sure," 'Crystal River coach Jere
    DeFoor said of West Port "We tried to
    get out and get some pressure (on
    their shooters); but we couldn't"
    The Wolfpack came out firing, hit-
    ting their first six shots from behind
    the arc. Thomia Wadley led the
    charge with three treys while Jaleesa
    Townsend knocked down two.
    The Pirates still kept it a two-point
    game at 9-7 before West Port ran off 12
    straight points. Wadley hit a pair of
    threes while Mariel Mayo hit two easy
    layups and Townsend added one of
    her own.
    Mayo and Townsend each scored a
    team-high 16 points for West Port, who
    held a commanding 24-9 advantage
    after the first quarter
    One thing both teams shared was
    the youth all over the floor. The
    Pirates started two freshmen and two
    sophomores while West Port began
    the game with a pair of freshmen and
    a sophomore.
    "Coming into the season, this was a
    very young and inexperienced team,"
    said Wolfpack coach Cory Rollerson,
    whose team is now 21-6 overall. "This
    team needed to come out, gain expe-
    rience and have its own identity."
    Michelle McDonald gave the
    Pirates a game-high 17 points while
    freshman guard Briana Bivens
    dropped in a career-high 14 on the
    night Bivens was a revelation for

    said Porcelli. The Hurricanes
    defeated the juggernaut team
    at a dual meet tournament in
    Daytona last Saturday. "We're
    ranked second and they're
    ranked third ... we'll see them
    again at the state tournament"
    With 12 wrestlers advancing
    to the regional tournament,
    Porcelli said he likes his team's
    chances of making some big
    waves at the state tournament
    in Lakeland.
    "The state'meet, we're just
    trying to gear up for that," he
    said. "Go to regionals next
    week, try to iget eight through,


    and then do the right thing."
    A key match for both Citrus
    and Crystal River came in the
    121-pound class final. Citrus'
    Bryant Fisher, who earlier this
    season notched his 100th
    career win, faced off with
    Crystal River's Brandon Jones,
    who placed fourth at state last
    year. The two hadn't wrestled in
    almost two years, and the
    match proved to be as tight as
    advertised. Fisher led by one
    point going into the third peri-
    od before clinching the win
    with a reversal for a 6-3 deci-
    sion.
    Along with Jones, John
    Koney placed second for the
    Pirates. Kevin Drawdy was the
    sole champion for Crystal
    River, taking a 9-3 win over


    own

    PIRATES
    Continued from Page 1B

    Crystal River, hitting 6-of-lO from
    the field and occasionally harass-
    ing West Port into turnovers.
    McDonald, a senior, also had
    11 rebounds to complete a dou-
    ble double. West Port's Mayo also
    had double-digit rebounds,
    pulling down 16 boards.
    "We definitely wanted to take


    - -

    a a


    the ball out of Michelle's hands,"
    Rollerson said. 'That was a key
    for us."
    Truth be told, Crystal River
    played evenly with the Wolfpack
    after the first quarter but just
    couldn't dig itself out of the 15-
    point hole West Port put the
    Pirates in after the first eight
    minutes.
    The Pirates tried valiantly
    though and managed to cut the
    score to 44-37 on a steal and
    layup by Bivens.


    Crystal River had visible
    momentum at that point yet all of
    it might have been sucked out of
    the gym when Wadley hit her
    fourth and final three of the night
    at the buzzer.
    The shot, coming at the end of
    the third quarter, swirled around
    the .rim several times before
    falling in and putting West Port
    up by double digits again.
    "That three right there at the
    end of the third quarter took
    all the momentum away,"


    Defoor said.
    After that, Crystal River never
    fully recovered and the
    Wolfpack's lead got out to as
    much as 17 points during the
    fourth quarter
    Still, DeFoor didn't see any
    shame in his Pirates falling to a
    faster and overall more talented
    team.
    "It's a great job right there,"
    DeFoor said of his team. "The
    kids played hard and didn't quit
    We made a good run at it"


    Citrus' David Zukley. The 152-
    pounder is one of eight Pirates
    moving on the regional tourna-
    ment a number that coach
    Craig Frederick was more than
    pleased with.
    "I was hoping for seven; we
    got eight," he said. "We only lost
    two kids. Considering the day,
    I'm proud of'them. We saw
    some tough kids once we got to
    the finals, and I thought they
    wrestled well."
    "It was a tough district I was
    impressed with the quality of
    wrestling."
    For Lecanto, Angelo
    Arcadipane was the only
    Panther to make it to the finals,
    and he managed to take home
    the district title. Seven of his
    teammates will accompany him


    to Sebring, including his broth-
    er Sam, who took third place at
    127.
    "We wanted to send eight to
    regionals, and we hit it right on
    the nose," said Lecanto coach
    Dick Slack "I'm very excited
    about that"
    That number likely would
    have been nine if the Panthers
    had Steven Struble, one of their
    top wrestlers. Struble sustained
    a shoulder injury recently and
    was unable to compete.
    "I'm very happy with the pro-
    ditction our kids had tonight,"
    said Slack "They had a very
    long day and they worked very
    hard.
    "They're in the dance, and
    we'll get to see how they do
    next weekend."

    NFL single-season record with 10 consecutive

    All the pressure is on the Patriots whose quest
    for perfection ends next Sunday in an Arizona
    desert. At 18-0, the Patriots are hoping to become
    the second team in NFL history to have an
    undefeated season. League MVP Tom Brady and
    Coach-of-the-Year Bill Belichick have their sights
    set on a fourth Super Bowl ring. Randy Moss, the
    most talented player on either team next Sunday,
    will be playing in his first Super Bowl.

    We hate taxes,

    but we should

    still be fair
    We don't like taxes.
    That was pretty evi-
    dent Tuesday when
    75 percent of Citrus County's
    voters supported the tax
    reform amendment
    The amendment had plenty
    of flaws, but it was a good first
    step toward driving home the
    point that our property tax sys-
    tem is a mess.
    Now our goal should be to
    make taxes fair.
    Florida's tax system is
    unjust because it treats people
    differently Many Floridians
    think it's OK to discriminate
    against newcomers and charge
    them a higher tax rate.
    The fact that 95 percent of us
    are also from someplace else
    doesn't seem to strike a chord
    with anyone. Maybe we should
    give a special property tax
    exemption to third-generation
    Floridians. That would pro-
    duce a hue and cry from the
    hinterlands.
    Let's forget for a second that
    we treat Yankees unfairly
    when they move to 'the
    Sunshine state. You know who
    else we treat unfairly? Our
    children.
    Imagine for a moment that
    you live in the Inverness
    Highlands in a home that is
    valued at $150,000. You've
    lived in the home for 10 years,
    so the Save Our Homes
    Amendment covers you. The
    taxable valuation ofyour home

    Best to leave

    some stories

    out of paper
    In the past few weeks,
    we've opted not to pursue
    certain stories that would
    cast a negative light on the
    objects of certain individuals'
    ire.
    In each case, we accept that
    elements of the allegations
    may hold water, but the big
    question is: is the newspaper
    the right reservoir for this
    information.
    When weighing four recent
    story requests, the answer was
    no.
    A medical facility is
    alleged to have inadequate
    health safeguards.
    Another medical facility is
    alleged to have been lackluster
    in providing timely care.
    A business is accused of
    refusing to reimburse money
    for canceled reservations. Add
    to that, the business represen-
    tative is said to have referred
    to the foreign visitors as "you
    people," which they found to
    be offensive.
    Another business is
    accused of poor customer serv-
    ice for denying a cash refund for
    an item that turned out not to be
    what the customer needed.
    While it'd be nice to help all
    those with similar situations,
    we have a handful of reporters
    and a whole county to cover.
    We're scrambling to get the top
    news and/or news of the broad-
    est interest. Throwing a

    A BAD CHOICE OVER NO CHOICE



    Reducing and


    reforming taxes


    are voter priorities


    Florida voters sent a clear
    message to all elected
    officials on Tuesday.
    Citizens want lower taxes and
    a property tax system that is fair.
    In the state, 64 percent of vot-
    ers approved the constitutional
    amendment on tax reform. In
    Citrus County, the number of
    supporters was at a staggering
    74.4 percent.
    Most elected offi-
    cials were opposed THE I:
    to Amendment 1, Voters
    but Gov. Charlie Amend
    Crist risked much
    and urged OUR 0
    Floridians to back
    the plan. The Vote s
    Tuesday vote was a strong r
    shot in the arm to
    Crist's leadership
    as he approaches the 2008 leg-
    islative session.
    As we said prior to the vote,
    the amendment was flawed. But
    it was also the best bet that citi-
    zens of our state had at sending
    the message to the politicians.
    The scare tactics employed by
    public officials against the
    amendment fell on deaf ears.
    Citizens are reasonable about
    taxes; it's .the Florida property
    tax system that has become
    unreasonable in recent years.
    Floridians are overburdened
    by high property taxes, high
    gasoline prices, high insurance
    costs and rising unemployment.
    Elected officials like to delude
    themselves into thinking they're
    doing a great job in controlling
    spending. The clear message
    Tuesday was that our politicians
    are not getting the job done.
    The adoption of the amend-
    ment does expand the home-
    stead exemption, it does allow a
    degree of valuation portability
    and it does provide some exemp-
    tions for business. But the tax
    system is terribly broken

    Survey complainers Q il


    It would be interesting to V
    do a survey here to see the
    age of the people who do
    all the complaining in the
    Sound Off. There's people V
    complaining about the traf-
    'fic lights in Beverly Hills.
    There's alternate routes to C
    take. If you don't like wait- 56
    ing at a light, take another 563
    alternate route around it.
    You don't have to go
    through that area. That's not the only
    route around there. People are com-
    plaining about the left lane and peo-
    ple (driving) slow in the left lane. It
    would be interesting to know who all
    the complainers are and what their
    ages are ... There could be a lot
    worse. You could have a horse and a
    wagon like we did 100 years ago.
    Then what would you complain
    about?
    Too many murders
    There are too many little girls and
    women being murdered by men ...
    I'm repulsed by how the government
    and media don't make more out of
    this deal. Sure, they have to stand
    trial and get punishment. Many get
    the death penalty. But what I'm talk-
    ing about is why men are not held
    more accountable for what's happen-
    ing. Another way that I might explain
    this is, what would happen if this
    were women kidnapping men, killing
    them and burying them in shallow
    graves? Can you imagine what the
    newspaper headlines would be and
    what the government would be


    because it does not treat people
    equally.
    New residents to Florida and
    people who have recently pur-
    chased their first home are pay-
    ing much higher taxes than resi-
    dents who have been here for
    more than five years. Tax bills
    have little to do with demand for
    services or with the value of the


    SSUE:

    property being
    taxed.
    When the Florida
    Legislature goes
    back into session
    later this spring,
    Gov. Crist needs to
    work with legisla-
    tors to consider the
    next round of
    reforms needed.
    The Finance and


    Taxation Committee has been
    working to come up with some
    creative reforms, including a
    complete elimination of local
    property tax for schools and a
    shift toward an expanded sales
    tax. These ideas need to be, con-
    sidered by the Legislature.
    There will be some inevitable
    legal challenges to what the voters
    did on Tuesday. Instead of fighting
    against the will of the voters, the
    incumbent county and city offi-
    cials should work to implement
    the amendment and make spend-
    ing reductions happen.
    Households and businesses
    are being forced to tighten their
    belts during these rough eco-
    nomic times city and county
    government shouldn't be
    immune from the reality of the
    situation.
    This was the first step in the
    process of changing our tax
    structure. At least the voters sent
    the message that elected offi-
    cials had better start paying
    attention. Those who ignore the
    will of the voter will soon
    become obsolete themselves.

    Doing? ... I'm voting for
    SHillary Clinton for this rea-
    son: She has a history of
    being able to shape up
    men. I'm repulsed at this
    killing, murdering and bury-
    ing women in shallow
    graves. Maybe she can do
    something about this. I
    don't feel safe with a white
    0579 man or a black man; I'm
    0579 voting for Clinton.
    Upgrade bridge
    Citrus County commissioners
    have the upper hand regarding the
    Suncoast Parkway. They could use
    the threat of voting against it unless
    DOT guarantees the bridge over the
    barge canal on (U.S.) 19 is complet-
    ed at the same time as the parkway
    extension. A concrete company
    expects 1,000 trips a day coming
    and going across the bridge. That is
    in addition to the traffic generated
    from the parkway.
    Injury ignored
    Being a lady in Apache Shores,
    while walking I fell in the middle of
    the street, sitting there bleeding. A
    man and a lady walking a dog
    passed by me without offering help.
    I hope this never happens to either
    of them. The Bible requests that we
    love our neighbor.
    Thanks for guide
    I wanted to thank you for your
    enclosure in your Jan. 27 edition of
    the Chronicle, titled "Our Home
    Citrus." It is very informative and help-
    ful and I thank you for your efforts.


    Flawed arguments
    In Sunday's Commentary, two emo-
    tion-laden letters urged readers to
    vote down Amendment 1. While it may
    be past the election and the results
    known, I would like to point out some
    fundamental flaws in the argument of
    one of those to help the reader better
    evaluate such pleas in the future.
    Debra Platt, the president of the
    local teachers' union, included budg-
    et numbers intended to scare the
    reader in her plea for the defeat of
    Amendment 1. Her logic in the first
    paragraph and in her cost-savings
    analysis is flawed. If the savings are
    so small to the tax-paying homeowner,
    the idea that the lost revenue from
    this source being devastating does not
    follow. The other point Platt fails to
    mention is that the additional home-
    stead exemption does not impact
    school funding, so her conclusion of
    devastating loss of revenue again
    does not follow.
    Secondly, she claims that the state
    funding for the Citrus County School
    District will be reduced $19.6 million
    during the next five years. During that
    time, based on the district's current
    budget, the district will want to spend
    over $400 million. She provides no
    source for these projections. She also
    doesn't indicate if these reductions are
    from the current budget or budget pro-
    jections made before the prospect of
    Amendment 1 that may include
    increases that exceed the $19.6 million.
    Even if these are actual reductions in
    its current budget, I don't believe a
    less-than 5-percent reduction, averaged
    over five years, can properly be char-
    acterized as "devastating."
    Her other argument about the
    reduction of total income to the coun-
    ty is again a projection compared
    against nothing.
    Too many times those facing a
    reduction in an increase, especially

    Facing half-life challenges with my whole-life helpmate


    TT alf-life" is a term
    which was coined
    in 1907 and gener-
    ally means the time it takes for
    half of something to go through
    a process. In our modern
    wo6ld, half-life has become a
    frightening measurement used
    when estimating the impact of
    a nuclear attack or accident
    Recently, while talking with
    son Fred, the concept of "half
    life" took on another, much
    more pleasant connotation -
    on his next birthday, which is a
    few days away, Fred will be half
    as old as his old man. I'm 62
    and he will be 31.
    'While considering the once-


    in-a-lifetime lining writings I suspect

    filling, but it's more than can be
    done during a standard eight-
    hour workday, five days a week
    Half a lifetime ago, I was the
    Assistant Director of the
    Florida Department of
    Banking and was up to my ears
    in branch bank applications.
    Until 1977, Florida had
    remained a "unit" banking state
    - there were no branches,
    every banking office was a sep-
    arate corporation. In 1975, the'
    state legislature passed branch
    banking into existence with an
    effective date of January, 1977.
    As political bodies sometimes
    do, they penned into existence
    something of incredible magni-


    tude, but made no provision for
    the workload it created. Simply
    put, we had to process hun-
    dreds of applications from
    banks wanting to branch and we
    had to do it with existing staff. It
    would be a rewarding adven-
    ture, but it would require
    extraordinary effort.
    Looking back, my mind rest-
    ed for a moment on the joy I
    felt when my sweetheart gave
    birth to our son.
    My thoughts then zeroed in
    on how throughout our life
    together, Cheryl has consistent-
    ly been an irreplaceable source
    of comfort and encouragement:
    In 1977, she took on more


    than her share of the load
    which came with our being par-
    ents to three children, includ-
    ing a newborn, while I often
    saw the sun rise and set from
    my office in the state Capitol.
    In 2008 there has been no
    complaint, not one, when I've
    needed to adjust our daily rou-
    tines in order to meet deadlines.
    In the truest sense of the word,
    Cheryl was, and continues to be,
    my helpmate, not just for the
    half-life, but for the whole thing!

    t's time to quit complaining about the Electoral College


    wise man once likened
    pure Democracy to "six
    wolves and a sheep vot-
    ing on what to have for lunch."
    Our Founding Fathers were
    aWare of this fatal flaw. They
    kihw that the poor would
    always elect leaders who prom-
    ised to take wealth from the
    "rich" and give it to the
    "needy"
    - They knew that democratic
    governments, absent guaran-
    teed-property rights and stable
    ldas; soon become corrupt and
    ufistable, collapsing into anar-
    chy and dictatorship.
    'The founders gave us instead
    a government where authority
    remains in the hands of citi-
    zens who elect their leaders.
    But 'elected leaders and citi-
    zens-are limited in what they
    caln do by a binding
    Constitution, defining and
    guaranteeing the rights of all


    parties.
    Concerned that
    too much power may
    flow to the federal
    government, they
    did not allow a pres-
    ident elected by pop-
    ular vote. They
    feared he may do
    things to curry favor
    with large blocks of Dr. Willi
    voters at the expense OTI
    of others, leading VO|
    him into corruption.
    They thought direct
    election, bypassing the states,
    would diminish the powers
    granted to the individual
    states.
    The founders were so con-
    cerned about the dangers of
    pure democracy (all issues
    decided by majority vote) that
    the vote was granted only to
    male adults who owned prop-
    erty. And they were limited to


    a
    H
    I


    directly electing a
    congressman from
    their district. The
    two senators from
    each state were to be
    elected by the state
    representatives -
    one step removed
    from the public. To
    protect the presi-
    m Dixon dency even further,
    IER they created the
    CES Electoral College,
    giving each state one
    elector for each
    Congressman and Senator.
    Each state was given the right
    to choose its electors by
    appointment or vote. And the
    states can deliver their elec-
    toral votes in a winner-take-all
    fashion or in proportion to the
    vote, as have Maine and
    Nebraska.
    As a result of this Electoral
    College, there have been four


    times when a president was
    elected despite his opponent
    getting more votes most
    recently Bush in 2000. Many,
    ignorant of the Constitution,
    claimed Bush stole the elec-
    tion. He didn't That outcome is
    consistent with what the
    founders wanted.
    Many have objected to the
    Electoral College .because it
    seems to give added weight to
    the votes of some in small states
    (often favoring Republicans)
    and because winning the popu-
    lar vote does not always mean
    victory for a candidate. It also
    makes voting in reliably'
    Democrat or Republican states
    less important For instance,
    California is going to support
    Democrat candidates, no mat-
    ter how many voters of either
    party cast a ballot Candidates
    must focus on electoral votes in
    swing states like Florida, and


    voters in Florida may exert an
    undue influence on the elec-
    tion outcome.
    Supporters point out that
    election by popular vote would
    favor voters in large cities at
    the expense of those in rural
    areas and small states.
    Election fraud, more usual in
    large urban areas, could influ-
    ence the outcome rather than
    just affect the state's electoral
    votes. Likewise, heavy voter
    turnout over an unrelated
    issue on the ballot in a state
    would affect the results of the
    general election as would bad
    weather reducing turnout in
    another state. With the elec-
    toral system, local turnout does
    not have as much effect on the
    outcome. Proponents also note
    that the electoral system has
    worked well for more than 200
    years.
    The last attempt at a


    Constitutional Amendment to
    change the Electoral College
    failed in 1973. It seems appar-
    ent that the Electoral College is
    here to stay.
    As voters, we need to quit
    complaining, understand how
    it works and why and get on
    with our responsibility for
    selecting the best candidates
    for office.

    Strong families mean strong economy


    TED GRANGER
    Special to the Chronicle

    For families already at
    risk, the broad impact of an
    economic downturn can be
    catastrophic and enduring. It
    is Florida's fiscal, social and
    moral obligation to make
    maintaining programs and
    services that strengthen fam-
    ilies our top priority, espe-
    dially during these difficult
    times.
    SEffective prevention pro-
    grains that strengthen fami-
    lies help mitigate the impact
    qf increased financial- strain
    on our most vulnerable resi-
    dents. Healthy Families
    Florida is a shining example
    qf such a program. Healthy
    Families Florida is a nation-
    ally accredited, community-
    based, voluntary home-visit-
    ing program that has been
    proven to prevent child
    abuse and neglect before it
    ever occurs. The program
    also improves maternal and
    child health and parent-child
    relationships and increases
    family self-sufficiency
    Ti-ained home visitors pro-
    vidp information, guidance
    and-emotional and practical
    support to families in their
    homes. Services begin during
    pregnancy or just after the
    birh of a baby because
    research shows that early
    childhood experiences have


    a lasting. impact on brain
    development. Home visitors
    teach problem-solving skills,
    model positive parent-child
    interaction, provide social
    support, connect parents and
    children to a medical
    provider, conduct screening
    to detect developmental
    delays and make referrals to
    additional family support
    services as needed. To
    ensure our children grow to
    become the best and bright-
    est leaders, business owners,
    teachers and parents possi-
    ble, we must do all we can
    now to provide them with
    high-quality early childhood
    experiences.
    By funding programs like
    Healthy Families Florida, we
    not only equip parents to
    raise a generation of healthy,
    productive children ready to
    learn in school and succeed
    in life, but we also reduce the
    short- and long-term costs
    associated with the conse-
    quences of child abuse and
    neglect. Research shows that
    children who are abused or
    neglected are more likely to
    drop out of school, need spe-
    cial education, become preg-
    nant as teenagers, become
    involved in the juvenile
    detention and corrections
    systems, or end up addicted
    to drugs. Children enrolled in
    Healthy Families Florida
    who were at increased risk of


    abuse and neglect have been
    spared from injury, emotion-
    al and psychological trauma
    and developmental delay.
    By teaching parents about
    child development and age
    appropriate activities and
    discipline techniques,
    Healthy Families empowers
    parents to accept personal
    responsibility for their future
    and the future of their fami-
    lies. The intensive services
    provided to families through
    Healthy Families Florida are
    not available through any
    other program in the state.
    What's more, Healthy
    Families Florida collabo-
    rates with Healthy Start,
    childcare providers, domes-
    tic violence, substance abuse
    and mental health service
    providers, faith-based organ-
    izations and other family sup-
    port services within the com-
    munity to ensure families
    receive comprehensive care
    without duplication of effort.
    We implore the Florida
    Legislature to maintain fund-
    ing for Healthy Families
    Florida and other effective
    prevention programs that are
    essential for the well-being of
    Florida's children and fami-
    lies and the future economic
    health of our state.

    Letters to the EDITOR


    No-touch rules
    Recently, radio and newspa-
    per ads, paid for by two Citrus
    County dive shops, have
    appeared urging people to
    attend a Feb. 6 meeting spon-
    sored by the Fish & Wildlife
    Service. They claim that out-
    side interests are proposing a
    no-touch rule for manatees
    and that it will bring economic
    ruin to the local economy.
    It is not outside interests pro-
    posing this, but rather con-'
    cerned Citrus County citizens
    and other tour operators,
    including other swim-with-the-
    manatee program operators,
    and the Crystal River City
    Council. We would rather have
    Citrus County seen as a noted
    eco-tour destination than have
    it viewed as a tacky tourist trap.
    The Fish and Wildlife
    Conservation Commission
    guidelines begin with: "Look,
    but do not touch manatees."
    No legitimate eco-tour opera-
    tor would promote the petting
    of wild animals, nor would any
    true eco-tourist expect that as
    the norm. The desire to touch,
    the encouragement of the tour
    operators to do so, and the
    reliance on voluntary compli-
    ance by the USFWS is the root
    cause of much of the other
    harassment including chasing,
    grabbing and disturbing sleep-
    ing manatees.
    Claiming that a no-touch


    rule would kill the industry is
    simply ridiculous. The swim-
    with industry must realize that
    they are not the only ones who
    have an economic interest
    here. There are true eco-tour
    operators being impacted by
    the uncaring, uninformed
    actions of some. When visitors
    see the chaos that is Three
    Sisters on a busy day in sea-
    son, they want no part of it
    Many of us depend on return
    customers, not the discount
    store mentality that comes
    with a $10 manatee tour.
    If you are tired of seeing
    manatees poked and prodded,
    awakened and pursued, or of
    hearing a tour operator
    instruct his or her customers to
    scratch their bellies, or tickle
    them under the flipper, come
    to the meeting from 6 p.m. to 10
    p.m. Feb. 6 at the National
    Guard Armory in Crystal River.
    For more information, call the
    refuge at 352-563-2088.

    Buzzards, begone
    On Jan. 21, a person wrote in
    needing assistance to rid buz-
    zards from landing on his roof.
    We had a similar problem
    with birds. My husband erect-
    ed a piece of slat at each end


    of the ridgepole that extended
    5 inches to 6 inches above the
    roof and strung a wire tightly
    from one end to the other.
    Result: problem solved.
    It certainly did an excellent
    job of discouraging the birds
    from landing on the roof. I
    hope that homeowner will be
    as successful. I would be inter-
    ested to know his results.

    Vets' flea market
    On Jan. 5, the Citrus County
    Veterans Coalition sponsored
    a yard/flea market in the park-
    ing lot of the Withlacoochee
    Technical Institute.
    Our organization, the local
    Chapter 192 of the Korean War
    Veterans, signed up for a
    space arid we are glad we did.
    We not only received a good
    financial return, but exposed
    our chapter to mapy who had
    never heard of us.
    Whether you are a member
    of the coalition or not, your
    organization might have
    missed an opportunity to
    financially support your activi-
    ties for the price: five bucks
    for veterans' groups, ten bucks
    for others.
    Hopefully, the coalition will
    continue to sponsor this activity

    situations is time-consuming
    ani'often futile.
    Story requests that involve
    marital disputes are as inviting
    as a romp in a field of poison ivy.
    Most often people are under-


    $150,000 to build and they are
    faced with paying property tax
    on the full taxable valuation of
    their property.
    First, they would have to pay
    the county a $9,313 impact fee.
    Then, after the $25,000 home-
    stead exemption is taken, your
    daughter's annual tax bill
    would be $2,519.
    If property valuation
    increased at the maximum 3
    percent cap for 10 consecutive
    years, the parents would pay
    total taxes of $5,294, or an aver-

    standing that we're reluctant to
    be the vehicle for placing
    someone in a negative light;
    such allegations are why there
    are lawyers and judges. When
    appropriate, we'll suggest
    options for them to consider in
    their pursuit of justice, per-
    ceived or otherwise.
    At the same time, it's defi-
    nitely worth advising us when
    these situations arise. A trend

    house of the same value -
    would pay $38,186 in that same
    10-year period, or an average
    annual tax bill of $3,818.
    In that 10-year period, the tax
    bill of the parents would be only
    14 percent of their daughter's.
    How is that fair?
    The recently passed tax
    amendment will have some
    impact with the increased
    homestead exemption, but the
    bottom line is that existing


    Floridians are dreaming up tax,
    schemes to charge higher rates
    to newcomers to Florida and to
    our children.
    None of us likes taxes, but
    forcing a group of new home-
    owners be they our children
    or newcomers from other
    states to handle a dispropor-
    tionate amount of the tax bur-
    den is wrong.
    When Florida voters first
    adopted the Save Our Homes

    That's one of the reasons I
    believe Citrus County's impact

    are charging these folks anoth-
    er $9,313 to build a house while
    we're also charging them at a
    property tax rate five to 10
    times higher than longtime
    homeowners are paying.

    to spend less money and to be
    more responsible. But is it
    responsible for us to take
    advantage of young people -

    on the part of the newspaper to
    recover damages." In other
    words, publishing the truth can
    be risky business.
    Being fair and objective are
    essential to good reporting, but

    Letters to the EDITOR


    Pine Ridge land rebuttal
    The Jan. 18 Chronicle published a
    letter from Harry McBride admon-
    ishing Al Giannone for questioning
    the "antics" ofPine Ridge board
    members, Harvey Gerber, Maxine
    Hulse and Mark Schroder.
    Giannone's letter questioned the
    three members' decision in negotiat-
    ing the sale of Pine Ridge property
    the county needs for widening
    County Road 486 and the $231,000
    received by residents for the proper-
    ty. McBride disagreed and thought
    the offer was fair and a good negotia-
    tion by the board. But, he missed the
    point completely
    Pine Ridge residents will never
    know whether they received a fair
    price for their land because Harvey;
    Maxine, and Mark thought they knew


    more than a state-provided media-
    tor/attorney and negotiated the sale
    themselves. The state provides attor-
    neys/mediators to safeguard the
    rights of property owners going
    through eminent domain proceed-
    ings. There is absolutely no cost to
    the property ownerss.
    How arrogant of these board mem-
    bers to take it into their own hands!
    It was approved at an earlier board
    meeting to use the state
    attorney/mediator. I'm not sure when,
    or why, this board majority changed
    that vote and "did it themselves."
    The state has a process in place to
    handle these issues, and I know from
    personal experience the process
    works, and works well.
    McBride's other point in his letter
    referred to the 2007 astronomical


    legal fees incurred by our associa-
    tion, giving our current board majori-
    ty "no blame" in the matter. He again
    failed to mention that one of the
    huge draws on our legal fees is
    Harvey Gerber's fight to delay an
    answer about whether our original
    deed restrictions are in effect.
    Rather than let the courts rule on
    whether we have a problem, and if
    we do, simply spend the money to fix
    it, Harvey chooses to impose delay
    after delay (spending thousands of
    residents' dues on legal fees) to avoid
    getting an answer. And, if we don't
    have a problem, we can move on and
    spend no more on legal fees. Makes
    you wonder what our current board
    majority is afraid of, doesn't it?

    Thanks for support
    It seems to me every once in a
    while it does not require a good
    deal of effort to say thanks to those
    at our Chronicle newspaper for the
    support they have given to our mil-
    itary veteran community. They pub-
    lish meetings, fundraisers, and
    sponsor many activities in support.
    I think all Citrus County military
    veteran organizations owe our
    Chronicle a very big "Ohrah"
    (that's Marine language) or a "well
    done" (as you Navy guys say).
    Surely the Army, Air Force and
    Coast Guard have something simi-
    lar.
    Please join me in thanking these
    folks for their support. The
    Chronicle: "Praised by some,
    cussed by many, read by all."

    CITus COUwT (FL) CHRONICLE





    The tru


    i Special to the Chronicle

    r- heard a little about the "fair
    tax" and thought I should take a
    closer look at it What I found sur-
    - raisedd me.
    ,, If someone thinks this is a fair
    ax, they are being fooled by the
    .clever name or just plain don't
    understandd it It is complicated, but
    ;'4m sure I can help.
    First, we should look at the
    tinme. You can decide whether you
    jhink it is fair or not after you see
    :ome of the facts below. But, it is a
    national sales tax. It is not based on
    1ricome, or value; it is based on the
    ale price of goods and services. It
    a, sales tax.
    4I"There are several claims and
    statements that need to be consid-
    ired. It is claimed that prices.will
    to down 22 percent because of the
    :~fimination of imbedded payroll
    taxes. This is probably one of the
    biggest myths of the plan. This is a
    nyth because:
    Just who is it that is going to take
    dhis 22 percent cut. Employers
    opld take about 7 1/2 percent of
    T his due to their corporate income
    t~es and current employer contri-
    iutions to taxes, but would they? It
    gclaimed.that competition would
    'brce this to happen. President
    .t'sh cut taxes, where are those
    t3rice reductions? They didn't hap-
    pen. I don't think this would hap-
    *-en either. It would be kept as addi-
    Vonal profits.
    I.,>But, if every employee along the
    ,nq;ire chain of production, distri-
    S-ution and sales would take a 14.5
    :-ercent wage cut, prices could go
    :own about 14.5 percent Let's ask
    *for the volunteers for this pay cut
    tfris is not likely to happen either
    :i'"So, prices would not go down.
    : oIt is claimed that jobs go overseas

    COMMENTARY


    ith about the 'fair tax Letterto te ganiclaw


    to save taxes. It therefore claims
    that employment would increase
    with the national sales tax. Last
    time I looked, most jobs were going
    overseas for cheap labor Some
    truth here, but very little.
    It is claimed that elimination of
    payroll taxes would increase
    exports. Yes, foreigners would buy
    tax free, forcing a greater burden
    on the U.S. taxpayer Would this be
    made up by people having more
    money to spend and increased
    employment? Let's see how this
    plays out
    This is supposed to be a tax-neu-
    tral proposition. The reduction in
    payroll taxes is supposed to be
    exactly offset by the sales tax rate.
    The Fair Tax Act also gets rid of
    estate taxes and gift taxes. I wonder
    who slipped in the elimination of
    these non-payroll taxes!
    Nevertheless, let's look at the
    effects of this national sales tax.
    We need to put our thinking caps
    on. There is an amazing piece of
    trickery tried here. If you take a pot
    of money, like your income, and
    take a tax out of it, this is an inclu-
    sive tax. The tax is included
    because there is not another pot of
    money to take the tax out of. If the
    tax is added on, like a sales tax, it is
    an exclusive tax. The exclusive tax
    makes you reach into your pocket
    and give more cash for the goods.
    The trickery is that the alleged
    reduction in prices of 22 percent is
    offset by a 23 percent tax that is
    really a 30 percent sales tax rate on
    goods and services. Let me explain
    by example.
    The National Sales Tax proposes
    it like this:
    Before the National Sales Tax
    Income $100
    Imbedded payroll taxes $ 22
    Available for Goods & Services-
    $78


    After the National Sales Tax
    Income $100
    Buy Goods & Services $ 77
    plus 30 percent sales tax $ 23
    Total $100
    What happens if nobody takes a
    pay cut and prices don't come
    down? We would all now be paying
    a 30 percent effective tax rate. The
    effect is that the poor and middle
    class get a tax increase of 4.5 per-
    cent to 28 percent and the top 50
    percent would get a tax reduction
    of 8 percent
    And, if people do take the pay
    cut, they won't have $100 to spend.
    They would have $86 after the 14.5
    percent pay cut. So, where the
    above example shows $77 could be
    made in purchases, they could real-
    ly only make purchases worth $66
    as shown below:
    Purchase $66
    30 percent tax $20
    Income $ 86
    You now can purchase $66 in
    goods and services instead of $77.
    So, you have 14 percent less to
    spend, to go along with your pay cut
    Did you notice that the tax is on
    goods and services? Governments
    are not exempt, either. Both state
    and local government services
    would be reduced by the 30 percent
    sales tax they have to pay; or your
    taxes will go up. Guess which.
    Do you like your insurance bill
    now? Wait until it gets a 30 percent
    sales tax added to it? And, I know
    you will like food, electricity, med-
    ical costs and prescriptions going up
    30 percent too? Are you happy yet?
    Gee, what can the government do
    to make this right? Under the nation-
    al sales tax, every household gets a
    monthly check to cover the poverty
    level expenses. A retired couple
    would get $357 per month of which
    $82 goes back as taxes and a family of
    four would get a check for $479, of


    which $111 will be taken back as
    taxes. I can guess what the poor and
    middle class would do with their
    check I wonder what the CEO of
    ExxonMobil, who makes $2,067 per
    hour, would do with his check
    Because of the "fairness" of this
    plan, it is claimed that the poor can
    now save for their own retirement.
    Do you suppose the proponents
    don't understand the meaning of,
    and dichotomy of, the words poor
    and save?
    It claims that the wealthy will
    pay their share because they buy
    more. I'm sure they do buy more.
    But, I find it hard to believe that
    they spend every cent, which is
    what they would have to do, to pay
    the same as the middle class. On
    the average, you and I spend about
    10 percent on food. For the CEO of
    ExxonMobil mentioned before, this
    would be $1,200 per day Does he
    eat that much more? Does he drive
    that much more than we do? Drink
    that much more water? Use that
    much more telephone? Somehow, I
    just don't think it comes out even.
    Either the poor and middle class
    get a tax increase or a pay cut, high-
    er taxes, reduced spendable
    income, and every cent they earn
    and spend is taxed at 30 percent
    Sorry, I just can't call this a fair tax.
    The current tax laws are bad,
    something should be done. This
    isn't it.

    :


    Marilyn J. Day accuses me of "a number of
    historical errors..." in my letter about Charley
    Reese. I made no such errors.
    She accuses me of confusing the
    Declaration of Independence with the
    Constitution. What I said was, "Our
    Constitution is written with the concept of life,
    liberty, etc. The Declaration goes on to say,
    "that to secure these Rights, Governments are
    instituted among Men...." And there's the justi-
    fication for the Constitution.
    Day says: 'Jefferson wrote many letters
    stating the British Common Law did not
    encompass the Ten Commandments or any
    other religious law."
    Common law is "law by precedence," based
    on common custom and tradition. However,
    its statutory/civil law includes concepts like
    "Thou shall not kill, thou shall not steal, and
    natural rights from God, etc.," just like us.
    Read William Blackstone's "Commentaries
    on the Laws of England," Volume I "Of the
    Rights of Persons" (1765). He was the most-
    quoted person by our Founding Fathers in
    open sessions of Congress. The Bible was the
    most quoted source overall.
    Day says, "While many of the Founding
    Fathers were Christian, many were not."
    OK, since you say there are "many," give us
    the names of just two who did not believe in
    the concepts of Christianity
    Day gives her usual position that the
    Founding Fathers did not intend for religion
    and government to mix. Not true, they were
    only against a state-sponsored religion.
    Our Organic Law is composed of: The
    Declaration of Independence, The Constitution
    and The Northwest Ordinance. All of these
    together making up our Founding Documents.
    The Northwest Ordinance governed those
    territories outside the original 13 states.
    Article 3 says "Religion, morality, and knowl-
    edge, being necessary to good government
    and the happiness of mankind,'schools and
    the means of education shall forever be
    encouraged."
    The Left wants to throw out our heritage
    and rewrite our Constitution to conform to
    the secular political "fads" of the day

    SUNDAY, FPlmIRUAiRY 3, 2008 3D


    .. --


    Special to the Chronicle

    Gulf Coast Spine Institute
    announced recently that Dr.
    Frank Bono and Dr. James
    Ronzo are offering a new min-
    imally invasive procedure for
    the treatment of Lumbar
    Spinal Stenosis (LSS) symp-
    toms. LSS is a common spinal
    problem suffered mainly by
    people 50 and older, and is
    often associated with leg, but-
    tock, groin and sometimes
    back pain.
    The new approach involves
    implanting an X-STOP device
    during a minimally invasive
    procedure that takes about 45
    to 90 minutes and can be done
    under local anesthesia. The
    procedure has a low compli-
    cation rate, and has been clin-
    ically proven to relieve the

    company's continual effort to
    expand coverage, increase capaci-
    ty and enhance the quality of its
    wireless voice and data network in
    Florida and throughout the country.
    Verizon Wireless has invested
    more than-$1.6 billion in Florida
    Sand more than $40 billion national-
    ly over the past seven years. The
    company spent more than $175
    million to enhance services and
    coverage throughout Florida during
    2007 alone.
    Greg's Car Center Inc.
    wins service award
    Greg's Car Center Inc. was rec-
    ognized as a 2007 AutocheX
    Premier Achiever for outstanding
    customer satisfaction at the sixth
    annual AutocheX Premier Achiever
    Award ceremony and reception on
    Nov. 1, 2007 at the Mandalay Bay
    Convention Center in Las Vegas.
    The event was held in conjunction
    with the International Autobody
    Congress and Exposition (NACE).
    The Premier Achiever Award
    recognizes collision repair facilities
    that consistently demonstrate their
    commitment to customer service
    as reflected by their exceptionally
    high customer satisfaction index
    (CSI) scores. Based on the hun-
    dreds of thousands of customer
    satisfaction surveys AutocheX per-
    formed throughout 2007, Greg's
    Car Center Inc. is one of only 382
    collision repair shops in North
    America to be named an AutocheX
    Premier Achiever.
    The Class of 2007 Premier
    Achievers attained customer satis-
    faction index scores in the top 5
    percent of facilities that use the
    AutocheX service throughout the
    U.S. and Canada. They include
    collision repair facilities of all sizes,
    from small, family-run businesses
    to large consolidators. They come
    from 27 states and every region of
    the U.S., as well as British
    Columbia, Canada. Over 35 per-
    cent of the shops also won the
    award in 2006 a record number
    of consecutive-year winners.
    AutocheX, a division of Mitchell
    International, is a leading provider
    of customer satisfaction measure-
    ment and performance manage-
    ment solutions to the collision
    repair industry. AutocheX and the
    participating insurance companies

    Another expo feature will
    be the Cisco NOW Van which
    will display and demo net-
    working technologies. The
    27-foot mobile demonstra-
    tion van is equipped with the
    latest Cisco networking tech-
    nologies and accommodates
    up to 10 persons per demo. A
    team will present technical
    demos in an interactive fash-
    ion.
    Still another major compo-
    nent of the expo is an "elec-
    tronics take back."
    Technology Conservation
    Group (TCG) is sponsoring an
    "amnesty day" to encourage
    attendees (businesses and
    individuals alike) to bring in
    their old computers, moni-
    tors, keyboards, computer


    power supplies, etc. for recy-
    cling, so that they don't end
    up in a landfill.
    CITA will also have a
    "Q&A" desk to answer basic
    technology questions with
    the purpose of directing
    attendees to exhibitors who
    can provide more detailed
    answers and/or solutions.
    Because the expo is a coop-
    erative effort between CITA
    and the EDC's
    Disaster/Recovery team,


    symptoms of LSS.
    Because standing upright
    provokes LSS symptoms, the
    X-STOP implant is designed
    to limit extension of the lum-
    bar spine and keep the canal
    open. A good candidate for
    the X-STOP procedure is
    someone age 50 or older
    whose physical function is
    moderately impaired and who
    experiences relief from pain
    when bending forward.
    The X-STOP IPD procedure
    involves implanting an X-
    STOP IPD device (a titanium
    alloy implant) in a minimally
    invasive, reversible proce-
    dure that takes about 45 to 90
    minutes and can be done
    under local anesthesia. The
    X-STOP device underwent
    extensive clinical study and is
    the first device approved in

    Awards each year as a way of rec-
    ognizing shops that have proven
    their devotion to quality, service
    and satisfaction.
    "The Premier Achiever Awards
    demonstrate the winners' success
    in making customer satisfaction a
    primary focus of their business,"
    said Jason Bertellotti, general
    manager of Mitchell Repair
    Solutions. "We want to congratu-
    late them and thank them for mak-
    ing the Premier Achiever program
    so successful."

    CITA feels that many busi-
    nesses will be interested in
    attending the expo to learn
    about the technological
    resources available to not
    only assist in business conti-
    nuity in the event of a disas-
    ter, but how to proactively
    reduce and/or prevent loss.
    The Florida Small
    Business Development
    Council will be represented
    at the expo, as well as
    SCORE, the CLM Workforce,
    the Citrus EDC and the
    Citrus County Chamber of
    Commerce.
    There are two levels of
    participation: exhibitor and
    sponsorship. For a $150 fee
    ($100 for CITA members),
    exhibitors are provided a 10-
    by-10 space to include a table
    with covering and skirting,
    backdrop and electrical con-
    nection if needed. Exhibitor
    names will be listed on the


    handout given to all atten-
    dees.
    For a fee of $500, sponsors
    are provided a 10-by-10 or 10-
    by-20 space (sponsor selects
    the location) and places their
    logo on all promotional mate-
    rials from email blasts and
    flyers to advertisements, sig-

    As of last week sponsors
    include: Bright House

    the U.S. to treat the symptoms
    of LSS.
    Patient benefits of the X-
    STOP IPD procedure include:
    Minimally invasive surgi-
    cal procedure.
    Does not require general
    anesthesia; can be done
    under a local anesthetic as an
    outpatient procedure.
    Typically no bone or soft
    tissue removal.
    The implant is removable
    and does not prevent a patient
    from undergoing surgery at a
    later time.
    Quick recovery time.
    LSS is on the rise due to the
    aging American population.
    Between 1997 and 2004, the
    number of hospital in-patient

    Stenosis has increased 46 per-
    cent.

    improve the organizations safety
    culture. Based on specific perform-
    ance measures, SRRMC applied
    FMQAI's initiatives to implement
    quality improvement interventions

    (i.e., identifies, implements and
    measures changes made to
    improve a process or a system),
    establishing intemal infrastructures
    for continuous quality improvement
    and implementing system changes.

    Congratulations to the voters
    of Florida for voting "Yes
    on 1." The people have spo-
    ken and the elected officials need


    to pay attention.
    It is a wake-up call
    for our elected officials
    to get more fiscal
    responsibility into
    their budgeting pro-
    cess. They also need to
    know that this is the
    start of something larg-
    er in the area of prop-
    erty tax reform. The
    Taxation and Budget
    Reform Commission is
    still meeting and
    should have other tax
    reforms coming forth
    before the end of May.

    The passing of this tax amend-
    ment will not only give every
    homesteaded taxpayer some
    additional money for their per-
    sonal use, but it also will open up
    the possibility of moving their
    homestead within Florida with-
    out taking on a huge new proper-
    ty tax increase.


    The amendment allows for a
    two-year window after the sale of
    the current homestead to move to
    a new homestead within the
    entire state of Florida and keep
    their "Save our
    Homes" tax savings
    S along with the 3 per-

    cap.
    This offers a wonder-
    SH ful opportunity for
    growing families to
    move up in home size
    and not take on a much
    Murray greater property tax
    bill. Likewise, the same
    .TOR opportunity is avail-
    NS able for people who
    desire to downsize
    their current homes. The porta-
    bility provision of Amendment 1
    is retroactive to Jan. 1, 2007.
    Sellers may transfer their Save
    Our Homes credit (the difference
    between the assessed value of a
    homestead and the market or
    "just" value) provided:

    Howdy Doody's worth; should I refurbish my old chair?


    Dear John: This etching
    was done by Lucien-
    Marcelin Gautier, 1850-
    1915. The image size is 15 by
    9.25 inches. The French pub-
    lisher EArt commissioned the
    artist to do etchings of Paris
    and Marseille. Next
    to his name below
    the etching are the
    letters "del.et.sc."
    At the bottom right-
    hand corner is the
    name of the printer,
    E Lienard. His art
    received medals
    and awards, in
    France in 1884,1894 John S
    and 1900. I have no
    idea of its value or SlKOIR
    how I might go AT
    about determining
    its authenticity. I would appre-
    ciate any information you
    could provide. G., Internet
    Dear G.: The letters del.etsc.
    on your print indicate the
    artist produced the design, as
    well as the engraving. Lucien
    Gautier's prints, including
    etchings, gravures, and engrav-
    ings, are currently bought and
    sold in the European print
    market As far as I can tell, the
    artist's original prints have not


    i


    sold for much money. I think
    your print would sell in the
    $100 to $300 range.
    Dear John: I have my
    father's Howdy Doody ventril-
    oquist doll from the 1950s. It
    does not have a tag on it with
    the year it was
    made, so I am not
    sure just how old
    this is. The doll still
    has a metal ring
    attached to a string
    in the back that,
    when pulled, oper-
    ates the doll's
    mouth. His eyes
    ikorski also open when tilt-
    ed up. He also
    SKI'PS comes with his neck
    rC -bandana with
    "Howdy Doody"
    written on it. I was wondering
    how much this collectible may
    be worth. I am attaching some
    pictures of the doll to show its
    condition. Obviously, being
    over 50 years old, it is not in
    pristine quality. Any help you
    can give me would be wonder-
    ful. T.F., Internet
    DearT.F.: I suspect you have
    triggered lots of pleasant

    Special to the Chronicle
    LEFT: Howdy Doody was a popular children's TV character in the 1950s. This ventriloquist's dummy
    appears to be missing its boots. It would probably sell for less than $500. RIGHT: This antique chair
    was probably made between World War I and II. Cleaning it up and refurbishing it could enhance its
    value. It would probably fetch between $150 and $300 if it were restored.

    ATTIC
    Continued from Page 6E

    Remember When moments for
    some of our readers with your
    Howdy Doody doll question.
    The "Howdy Doody" show
    aired on NBC-TV from 1947 to
    1960. There were a number of
    characters, including Clarabell
    the Clown, Mr. Bluster, Flub-A-
    Dob, Dilly-Dally, and the beau-
    tiful Princess Summerfall
    Winterspring and others.
    It appears your Howdy Doody
    doll is missing his boots; if so it
    would negatively affect the col-
    lector interest I think it would
    likely sell for less than $500.
    Dear John: My stepmother
    found an old bible. The date on
    it is 1611. It is a large bible and
    has 16 volumes. Any idea on its
    value? -J., Internet
    DearJ.: I suggest you contact
    a rare book dealer in your
    area, or call Mr. or Mrs. Haisley
    at Books Inc. in Gainesville at
    (352) 3744241.
    Dear John: Attached, please
    find photos of an antique living
    room side chair My husband
    received this chair when his
    mother passed away in 1997.
    She was 94 years old. We know
    that she brought the chair down
    here from New Hampshire. My
    husband remembers the chair
    from when he was going up, but
    no other details. He does not
    remember what the chair


    looked like before the obvious
    re-upholstering. We are plan-
    ning to have it re-upholstered,
    again. There seems to be some
    controversy as to whether we
    should refinish the wood or not
    What is your opinion on this
    issue?
    The other questions we have
    are what is this style called and
    what is the approximate age of
    the chair? Finally, can you give
    it an approximate dollar
    value? Any help you could pro-
    vide would be greatly appreci-
    ated. We both enjoy reading
    your column. VE., Internet
    Dear V.E.: It would greatly
    improve the look of your uphol-
    stered armchair to have the
    wood portions of the chair refin-
    ished, as well as enhancing the
    potential dollar value. The style
    of the legs and armrests reflect
    18th-century design. The chair
    was made in the United States,
    likely between World War I and
    II. Potential dollar value in
    refinished and reupholstered
    condition is $150 to $300.

    Continued from Page 6E

    1. The residence sold last
    year was homesteaded.
    2. The new residence quali-
    fied for the homestead exemp-
    tion as of Jan. 1, 2008.
    3. The owner applies for the
    exemption and transfer with
    the county property appraiser
    by March 1, 2008.
    We Realtors, along with Gov
    Crist, believe that with the
    passing of this amendment we


    will see a jump-start in real
    estate business through allow-
    ing the portability of property
    taxes. When he spoke to the
    Florida Association of Realtors
    last week in Orlando, he also
    vowed to loosen the reins of the
    insurance companies and work
    to make affordable homeown-
    ers insurance available to
    everyone. Most of you are
    aware that he has taken on the
    insurance companies here in
    Florida and I believe he will
    make some progress in the next
    few months.
    It seems that there has been


    CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE
    an increase in activity in our
    local real estate market. We
    are seeing more buyers looking
    at our homes and there are cer-
    tainly many good buys avail-
    able for them.
    I would hope with the
    increase in buyertraffic and the
    passing of our tax reform
    amendment that all of us, sellers,
    buyers and Realtors, are seeing
    the start of something very good.

    Neighborhoods (FYN) Con-
    sultation Table is staffed by ded-
    icated, knowledgeable volun-
    teers who have completed
    extensive training through the
    University of Florida/IFAS
    Extension's Master Garden
    Program. The Master
    Gardeners are available to
    answer your gardening ques-
    tions and to provide you with
    more information on the FYN
    Program, which consists of nine
    principles to create a more
    attractive, "greener" landscape
    that saves money and water and
    reduces maintenance.
    Free packets of Florida-
    friendly wildflowers will be
    available at the Lowe's FYN
    Consultation Table on
    Saturday. Stop by to get your
    seeds and to speak to a Master
    Gardener about how to "green
    up" your yard.
    In addition to the FYN
    Consultation Table, the Citrus
    County UF/IFAS Extension
    Service offers a wide variety of
    programs in the areas of lawn
    and garden, family and con-


    summer issues, sus-
    tainable living and
    4H Youth
    Development.
    The Florida-
    friendly Landscape
    Design Course runs
    six weeks, starting
    Thursday, through

    will be offered from F1

    Thursday. The course will
    cover principles of Florida-
    friendly landscape design,
    native and exotic plants, turf
    selection and maintenance,
    and more.

    Service has partnered with the
    Citrus County Department of
    Water Resources to offer the

    to enhance their awareness of
    the value and quality of their
    services; and work in the most
    cost-effective and efficient
    manner possible.
    As part of this mission, Water
    Resources is paying part of the
    registration fee and supplying
    part of the class materials. The
    cost of the six-week course is
    $15 per person or $25 per cou-

    -p local folage


    Leafless redbuds are spectacu-
    lar flowering trees from
    February to March in Citrus,
    Levy and Marion counties. Profuse
    displays of tiny pea-like
    blossoms sprout right from
    the bare twigs, branches
    and even the trunk to bathe
    this native in a blush of
    magenta pink Central
    Florida marks the southern
    limit of its range. It will
    grow in Zones 4 to 9
    throughout eastern North
    America. Jane
    Redbud is fast-growing,
    but somewhat short-lived at JA?
    about 50 years. It prefers GAI
    rich, well-drained, acidic

    If your garden is in the sand hills,
    amend the soil with organic humus
    when planting and scatter more com-
    post each year as the tree grows and
    uses up the nutrients from the soil.
    Plant in part shade to full sun. Once
    established, redbuds can survive on
    natural rainfall but need some irriga-
    Pea-like blossoms in magenta pink
    announce that redbud is in bloom.
    JANE WEBER/For the Chronicle


    tion during extended drought
    Heart-shaped leaves with long
    stems sprout as the last flowers fade.
    Leaves are paper thin, 3 to 6 inches
    long, shiny and tinged with
    burgundy when new, a pale
    green color all summer and
    then turn yellow in the fall.
    The simple leaves have
    prominent veins and
    smooth edges. As leaves
    S grow alternately, not oppo-
    site each other, the twigs
    have a zigzag look Bark is
    Veber gray, thin and quite smooth.
    S Look closely for the half-
    E'S inch slug-shaped green to
    DEN reddish caterpillar of the
    butterfly Henry's elfin. This
    butterfly caterpillar will eat young
    holly leaves farther north but does not
    range farther south than the last red-
    bud will grow.
    This butterfly is quite rare in
    Florida but locally abundant where
    there are host redbuds. Only one gen-
    eration hatches in spring. Mature lar-
    vae may hide in lichens that grow on
    the host tree. In March and April the
    elfin emerges from the chrysalis, nec-
    tars on flowers, mates and lays eggs

    Learn more about this and
    other butterflies from the
    Beverly Hills Butterfly Club.
    The club meets the second
    Sunday each month at 2:30 pm
    at the Beverly Hills Recreation
    Center, 77 Civic Circle, Beverly
    Hills. Contact Christine Small,
    president, at 527-8639 for more
    information.
    Long, 4-inch seedpods hang
    on redbud twigs, often into


    winter There are about five
    hard, round, black seeds in
    each pod. The ripe pods
    change from green to brown,
    soft at first but stiff and hard at
    maturity. Birds and wind dis-
    perse the seeds, which readily
    sprout to form scattered groups
    of pretty trees in the right habi-
    tat.
    Pink redbuds, white Walter's
    viburnum and Chickasaw
    plums, purple azaleas and
    rose-like camellias will be in
    full bloom at Rainbow Springs
    State Park on U.S. 41 north of
    Dunnellon during the park's
    Gardening and Nature days,


    part of Spring at the Springs
    festival, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb.
    16 and 1 to 3:30 p.m. Feb. 17.
    Call (352) 465-8555 for more
    information. I never miss this
    informative annual event and
    stunning floral display. I hope
    to see you there.
