DeSoto County authorities have
issued a nationwide BOLO, "be on the

victed in the 1990s of sexually battering


seven patients during

n January, a defendant from

Daniel Merritt, not to be sentenced
for a crime, but to get help for a men-

It was something new in Citrus

The hearing was a baby step for the

dant, the first in the program, was
being held for a non-violent crime,
but had mental health issues.

"It's a very important tool to direct
mentally ill people out of criminal
prosecution," said Circuit Judge Ric
Howard. "We have to start this court
with baby steps."
For the local chapter of the
National Alliance on Mental Illness
(NAMI), Mental Health Court was
another victory in its continuing
efforts to spur interest in expanding
services for the mentally ill in Citrus
County. NAMI members supported
efforts to start the program.
'"Jails have become our answer to

NAMI President Joan Murphy. "Now,
25 percent of all of those incarcerated
are diagnosed as being mentally ill."

On Saturday, the third annual 3-

was focused more on raising public

have to do anything to receive the ben-
efits of the new, second $25,000 home-
stead property tax exemption that
passed in Amendment 1 on Jan. 29.
The $25,000 tangible property tax
exemption, however, will require the
filing of forms by April 1 of this year.
Existing homesteads
Current homesteaded property
owners will automatically be credited
with the new exemption for 2008

beginning of the year for the previous

however, that the exemption is on the


GETTING YOUR NEW TAX BENEFITS
Currently registered homesteads will automatically get the new $25,000
exemption.
* If you sold your homesteaded home in 2007 and bought another by Jan. 1,
2008, you must apply by March 1, 2008, for the new homestead and trans-
ference (portability) of the Save Our Homes tax cap you had on the previous
home. Those selling and buying in 2008 will apply for the 2009 tax year.
* To claim the new $25,000 tangible property tax exemption for 2008, taxpay-
ers (businesses, mobile home owners) must file the appropriate form by April
S1, 2008.

benefit can be claimed for 2008.

value,- which means about 11,500
homesteads in the county, assessed at
less than $50,000, won't qualify for the
new exemption.


They should also be aware the
school board portion of homeowners'
property tax bills are not subject to
the new $25,000 exemption, and the
school board taxes are approaching


half of the property tax bill in Citrus
County. That means the taxpayers
won't see a full double exemption with
the new $25,000.
The average homesteaded taxpayer
likely will see from $240 to $250 in sav-
ings, but the amount will vary with the
assessed value. Taxpayers also should
be aware that the state has set the
Save Our Homes cap increase at the
full 3 percent for tax year 2008, so they
will see that increase in assessed
value, according to Citrus Property
Appraiser Melanie Hensley.

property, for Safety Town and
Jessie's Place. The land is
located on the north side of
Rock Crusher Elementary
School.
In remembrance of murder
victim 9-year-old Jessica
Lunsford, Jessie's Place
would be a facility where vic-
timized children would


receive services and counsel-
ing. The children's advocacy
center would help children
in situations where there is
an allegation of physical
abuse, neglect or sexual
abuse.

Safety Town would feature
a child-sized town with
small-scale buildings, roads

kindergarten through third-
grade learn how to protect
themselves.

or an applicable collective
bargaining agreement,"
according to the policy.
Board members will
have the opportunity to
approve purchase orders for
global positioning systems
for school buses, nine new
buses and 20 replacement
buses. The global positioning
systems cost $294,695 and the
buses cost nearly $3 million;
funding for the purchases is
budgeted in the district's
existing capital budget.

Murphy said her involve-
ment in fighting for the rights
of the mentally ill began when
a grandson, who was bipolar,
was arrested in 1999 and
threatened with 30 years in
prison. She said she knew
about the attitudes toward
mental illness at the time, and
she knew she could not get
treatment for her grandson.
He was incarcerated.
Frustrated by the experi-
ence, she began looking for
ways to help the mentally ill.
She said she was advised by a

budgets and millages for 2009
and will finalize them in
September.

Save Our Homes
portability
A second benefit for home-
steaded property owners that
passed in Amendment 1 was
the portability of the Save Our
Homes tax cap. The Save Our
Homes provision has allowed
homesteaded owners to enjoy
protection against increased
assessments, holding them to
the cost of living index and no
more than 3 percent, some-
thing which has helped mil-
lions keep their taxes down as
property values soared
between 2004-06, resulting in
higher assessments.
The portability element of
Amendment 1 will allow home-
steaded owners to take their
accumulated protection with
them when they sell their
home, to a new homestead.
They can transfer up to
$500,000 of assessed value pro-
tection. If the assessed value is
different from that of their for-
mer home, the protection is
transferred proportionally.
Homesteaders who sold in
2007 and bought another home
in 2007 they are using as their
primary residence and


which they occupied by Jan. 1,
2008 can apply for the porta-
bility protection for tax year
2008. They must apply for a
new homestead exemption and
with the appropriate portabili-
ty form, however, by March 1,
which is the deadline for
homestead filing.
If they had bought a new
home in 2007 and had already
applied for their new home-
stead exemption for 2008
before the passage of
Amendment 1, they must reap-
ply for the homestead with
portability protection.
For those moving to or from
Citrus, there is also a form
available at the property
appraiser's office or on a state
Web site that must be used if
the new home is in different
county from the old home.
Hensley stressed that home-
owners in doubt of their status
should contact her office
before the deadline, which isn't


flexible and could make the
difference of them getting the
exemption for 2008.
As for those who have sold
their homestead ini 2007 or
2008 or who are planning on
selling this year, if they buy
another home in 2008, occupy
it in that year and apply for
homestead by March 1, 2009,
they will be eligible for the
portability of their accumulat-
ed protection, starting in the
2009 tax year.
Going forward, the tax cap
benefit will be available to
those who sell their home and
buy another within two years.
Tangible Tax
exemption
In Florida, businesses pay a
tangible tax on the equipment


they use in their operations
and stores (mobile home own-
ers also pay on attachments to
their homes). The new-$25,000
tangible tax exemption will be
available to them for the 2008
tax year, but the taxpayers
must file the appropriate form
with the Property Tax
Appraiser's office by April 1,
2008.
The portability form was still
in draft form at the Florida
Department of Revenue last
week, but was expected to be
finalized by Monday, and avail-
able on that agency's Web site
or at Citrus County Property
Tax Appraiser's office in
Inverness or Crystal River. It
can be viewed at the site where
it will be available online at:
dor.myflorida.com.


Non-homestead
tax cap
.Amendment 1 set a 10 per-
cent tax assessment increase
cap for non-homesteaded prop-
erty, and the taxpayer must
apply for it, but it does not take
effect until tax year 2009. That
means it will not apply to tax
year 2008, and so taxpayers
won't need to apply for the cur-
rent tax year.
Hensley said she does not
see any tax increases on non-
homestead properties being as
high as 10 percent for the cur-
rent tax year, and so the benefit
would not be of use in Citrus
County for 2008 anyway.
Going forward, however, tax-
payers who want the protec-
tion of the cap for 2009 and


after that will have to apply.
Because state officials have
been concentrating on the 2008
issues, the forms have not been
developed and deadlines for
filing them have not yet been
set.
Info on the Web
There is a large amount of
supporting material on the
state's Department of Revenue
(DOR) Web site about the tax
exemptions at:
dor.myflorida.com.
There is also an explanation
on the Citrus County Property
Appraisers office Web site,
www.pa.citrus.fl.us. The forms
will be available at- the
Inverness or Crystal River
property appraisers office or
on the DOR Web site.

Live Longer With Better Hearing

Finally, a Revolutionary Hearing Device Made to Make People Feel Better, and Live Longer
Florida based hearing aid company to introduce a hearing device Designed to Disappear For All Lifestyles


Inverness, FL.- Mr. Denny Dingler, President of
Professional Hearing Centers announced today a
partnership with the manufacture of Intel-A-Hear
hearing devices, which is introducing the Nano-
Prem6reTM, one of the worlds smallest hearing
devices ever created. This partnership will bring to
Inverness a level of hearing help never offered
before. Intel-A-Hear is entrusting Professional
Hearing Centers to pave the way for better hearing
help for all.
Mr. Dingler explains this new technology break-
through allows more people to enjoy better hearing
without the stigma attached to traditional hearing
aids. "We are excited to offer this new Hearing
System called the Nano-Prem6reMT as part of a
National Product Testing Market Event
scheduled for Wednesday, February 13th thru
Saturday February 16th. During this Free Public
Event, we hope to change the perceptions of the way
people feel about hearing aids."
Dingier cites that there are over 33 million people
that need some form of hearing help but only 7 mil-
lion seek help. Hearing loss is the #1 untreated dis-
ability in America. People must recognize that the
symptoms of untreated hearing loss are very similar
to Alzheimer's disease. Some of the symptoms
may include:
Depression, anxiety, feelings of isolation
Reduced communication ability
Reduced cognitive input
Inappropriate response, especially in


group situations
Reduced mental scores
Denial, defensiveness, negativity
Distrust & paranoia
Once hearing loss is treated (usually with amplifica-
tion) a person feels alert, feels younger, and feels bet-
ter, and that can lead to living longer.


"Inverness Area
Hearing Aid Company has
partnered with one of the
largest Hearing Aid
Manufacturers in the world
to offer unprecedented
discounts."

Dingier also explains, "During this free special event
we will demonstrate the most cosmetically appealing
hearing device on the market today. Don't let the size
fool you. The Nano-Prem6re' is the first system of
it's kind to offer the wearer natural hearing using the
power of n' which is Natural Sound, Natural
Awareness, and Natural Amplification. Finally, a
hearing device that is small that doesn't give up any
performance. In fact, it's the only hearing system
that allows the brain to use one ear to focus while the
other ear maintains peripheral awareness. That's
Natural Hearing!" Dingier states.


Factory Trained representatives will be flown in for
the Free special event and will be on hand to demon-
strated this innovative natural hearing system. In
fact, the manufacturer is offering all of its products
including the Nano-Prem6re at 50% off MSRP.
Most of these devices include an unprecedented
three year warranty.
It simply could not get better for those serious about
getting hearing help or trading in their existing hear-
ing aids for better hearing. With 100% financing
available during the special event, a person can
leave with the very best technology available
for as little as $10.00 a day (O.A.C.).
We will have refreshments and with the exciting
atmosphere during the event we believe that
people, not only will leave enjoying better hearing,
but they will have fun doing it" says Dingler.
This special test market event is being held in
one Florida area location by Professional
Hearing Centers. Their office is located ait,_
211 S. Apopka Ave. Be one of the first 50
people to take part in this 4 day event begin-

Citizen of Year performs welcoming deed for troops


A funny thing happened to me on
my way to writing this article,
and I am so proud that it did.
On the morning of Jan. 27, I went out
to pick up my newspaper, and when I
opened it, there on the front page was
the announcement of the Citrus
County Chronicle Citizen
of the Year, with a picture
of Barbara Mills, a lady
who has worked super
hard to support our troops.
She is the founder and
Mother Superior of the
Citrus Hero's Welcome
Home project The funny
part of this is that I had the
pleasure of being pictured
with her as she displayed Larry M
the album of pictures and VETEI
articles of all 24 returnees
in 2007 that she prepared VI
baskets for. The caption
read, "Barbara Mills sits with hus-
band Jim," which I am not.
Fortunately, Jim Mills and I have
known each other for quite a few


F


years, and he, too, is a proud veteran,
having served in Vietnam. Our fami-
lies and many acquaintances got quite
a chuckle out of the situation, but I
must say that I am so happy that
Barbara won this very distinguished
award, and I hope she goes on to win
the Jefferson Award from
the American Institute for
Public Service for which
she has also been nomi-
nated. That is what
prompted this gathering of
representatives from vet-
erans organizations that
have supported her at her
home when ABC Action
News did a television pro-
acMillan file on her accomplish-
RAN'S ments and her nomination
for the Jefferson Award. In
EW both the Chronicle Citizen
of Year Award and the
Jefferson Award, she is up against
some pretty stiff competition, and I
salute the committee for choosing this
young lady who is a veteran in her


own right waiting for the return of a
husband and two children, who
fought for our right to live in peace.
Barbara was considering discontin-
uing the project after the end of the
year. Her husband Jim had had a
heart attack in November and she had
sacrificed many hours of her real
estate career to become what she
calls the "town beggar." The veterans
and the community pitched in and
encouraged her to continue this won-
derful program. It is estimated that
the county will possibly see 50 plus
servicemen and servicewomen return
from Iraq and Afghanistan in 2008. It
goes without saying that without com-
munity and business support she
wouldn't be able to accomplish this. If
you or your organization would like to
help, contact Barbara Mills at 422-
6236 or e-mail her at barbaramills@
remax.net. Jay Conti, with the
American Legion, has set up a Web
site at www.citrusheroes.org.
Barbara also manages to show up at
special activities throughout the


county, having people sign thank-you
cards which are forwarded to our
troops. She will have a booth at the
CCVC Veterans Benefit Yard
Sale/Flea Market at Withlacoochee
Technical Institute parking lot
Saturday, Feb. 23. Come meet our
Citrus County Citizen of the Year and
support this outstanding program.
Here we are in an election year, and
just two weeks ago, President Bush
gave his State of the Union address. In
his closing months as president, it is
hoped that many of the issues con-
cerning veterans benefits, health care
for returning troops, withdrawal from
Iraq and Afghanistan, and the econo-
my will be addressed. Already veter-
ans have felt shortchanged by the
most recent budget cuts.
One of the fundraisers to help veter-
ans is the monthly CCVC Veterans
Benefit Yard Sale/Flea Market sched-
uled for Saturday, Feb. 23, from 7 a.m.
to 3 p.m. at the Withlacoochee
Technical Institute parking lot on State
Road 44 West in Inverness. Booths (10


feet x 20 feet) are available for a $10
contribution and $5 for veterans organ-
izations on a first-come, first -served
basis. Call Mike O'Brien at 726-9062,
Richard Floyd at 726-5031 or Joel
Smoyer at 726-4429 to reserve a space.
Mark that date on your calendar and
come shop until you drop to benefit our
hungry and homeless veterans in
Citrus County.
In closing for this month, I would
like to use a quote from President
Harry S. Truman: "It's amazing what
you can do if you do not care who gets
the credit." Support our troops and
honor our Veterans.

LarryMacMillan is an 11-year
veteran of the U.S. Air Force during
the Korean and Vietnam era and
currently serves as the public
information officer for the Citrus
County Veterans Coalition.
He can be
contacted by e-mail at
citrusvets@yahoo.com.

GUIDE
Continued from Page A2

and also provided ease of land-
ing for trading ships.
Traveling to places of signifi-
cant historical events and
famous people brings life to
history-books, stimulates the


imagination and causes one to
want to travel more and more.
There is a certain elation in
knowing that you are walking
in the footsteps of people
known only through ancient
records who have created a
chain of events that still impact
us today.
At age 17, Marco Polo, the
town's most famous citizen,


began traveling the Silk Road
with his father and uncle in
1271. Through a period of 24
years, he became a trusted
friend and confidant of Kublai
Khan, a powerful and feared
Mongol ruler. As an emissary
and confidante of Kublai Khan,
Marco Polo earned the distinc-
tion as Europe's most notable
explorer and adventurer.


When in places such as
Korculh, I attempt to put
myself in the time and place
of the locals what would it
be like to live here? What
would it have been like to live
there during periods in the
town's history? None of the
conveniences of today elec-
tricity motorized vehicles
- telephones isolated from


the world. Even today, many
citizens rarely leave the
island.
Who are your heroes or
villainous characters that
you would like to track? Near
or far the world is a wonder-
ful place to explore.'


Neil Sawyer is a 22-year


Crystal River resident and
businessman. He and his wife,
Karyn, are extensive travelers,
venturing to foreign countries
two to three times a year in
addition to taking several
domestic excursions annually.
They prefer independent
travel or with small-group
guided tours. E-mail him at

Lecanto downs Citrus in final


Panthers face

Atlantic at home
ALAN FESTO
afesto@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
OCAIA It was a special
night for Citrus County but it
was a whole lot sweeter for one
team ... the Lecanto Panthers.
The Panthers defeated the
Citrus Hurricanes, 57-52, to
win its third-straight District
4A-6 basketball championship
on Saturday night at West Port
High School in Ocala.
"It feels great," Lecanto
coach Chris Nichols said. "Our


kids have done fantastic, I can't
ask kids to play any harder or
work any harder then these
guys have."
With the score tied at 37 with
2:46 to go in the third quarter,
Citrus had a chance to take the
lead twice. The 'Canes were
called for a lane violation once
and missed two free throws
later, missing a golden opportu-
nity to take their first lead of
the ball game.
Lecanto took advantage, can-
ning two 3-pointers in the final
22 seconds of the quarter to
take a six-point lead into the
final eight minutes of play.
Victor Cortes hit the first, fol-
lowed by a buzzer-beater by his
brother Nick Cortes.


"Nicky comes up and hits
that beautiful shot, I don't know
how that went in," Victor said.
"He makes crazy shots every
day, so I think it was natu-
ral for him."
Nick finished
with 19 points and
eight rebounds.
In the fourth
quarter, Lecanto
led by as many as
eight and never let
Citrus get any closer
than three. Citrus' Jon Ear hit a
wide-open 3-pointer with 2:37
remaining to get it within four,
but Victor Cortes answered
with a great drive to go up 51-45.
Lecanto's senior point guard
also hit four free throws down


the stretch to seal the victory.
The Hurricanes got within
three points with 1.7 seconds
left after a 3-pointer by David
Wheeler but Citrus was
unable to steal the
ball back
After the game
lS Victor gave all
l the credit to his
teammates for
working hard
during the season,
particularly forward
Elijah Bradley. Victor prom-
ised Bradley he would help
him get his first district cham-
pionship if he transferred from
Dunnellon and he followed
through with his promise. Of
course Bradley did plenty to


help his cause as well, scoring
nine points and pulling down
12 rebounds.
"It's one of the greatest feel-
ings in the world," Bradley said
of winning the championship.
"I'm glad I was on this team,
I'm glad I transferred."
Citrus had the luxury of
being in the double bonus vir-
tually the entire fourth quarter
but failed to take advantage,
missing 11 of their 19 attempts
in the game. The only consis-
tent play came from the post
where Craig Augustine and
Nathan Pullen accounted for a
combined 22 points and 22
rebounds; Trent Shelton also
scored in double digits for
Citrus with 10.


Shelton was in charge of
keeping Victor Cortes at bay on
the perimeter and for the most
part did a good job. Shelton
held him to 8-of-22 shooting but
Victor still scored a game-high
25 points thanks to his driving
ability and hit all seven of his
free throw attempts.
"Defensively I thought we
did all right," Densmore said.
It was the second time in as
many nights that Lecanto had a
season low for points.
"I feel pretty good and pretty
confident that if we get into a
game where we have to grind it
out we can do it because we did it
two nights in a row," Nichols said.

Citrus wins regional title; 11 county wrestlers go on to state meet


JOHN COSCIA
jcoscia@chronicleonlie.com
Chronicle


As a diehard New York Yankees
fan, Mike Porcelli is more than famil-
iar with what it takes to build a
dynasty.
Heading into Saturday night's Class
1A, Region 2 finals, the Citrus
Hurricanes clung to a five-point lead
over district rival Hernando. Both
teams would have four wrestlers in
championship bouts.
At stake? The regional title hung in
the balance. A chance, in fact, for the
Hurricanes to lay claim to their third
straight regional championship and
begin to be spoken of in dynasty
terms.


As the scores were read prior to the
championship matches, a wave of
rumbling found its way around South
Florida Community College's gymna-
sium. Were the Leopards about to put
an end to the stranglehold that the
Hurricanes had placed on regional
wrestling over the past three years?
Not if Citrus had anything to say
about it. And they did.
"No worries. We've got our four
Mariano Riveras coming up. They're
our Sandmen," said Porcelli making a
reference to the Yankees' dominant
closer. "They've been our finishing
guys all year. We've got generals and
we've got soldiers on this team.
They're all great as a unit but these
are the guys that have led us in war
all year."


True to Porcelli's prediction, his
first two wrestlers, Craig Barker and
Bryant Fisher, at 112 and 119 pounds
respectively, easily won their regional
championship title matches.
The Leopards, however, weren't
going away and, when Daniel Pritz
won his match at 125 pounds,
Hernando's hopes were still alive..
The tournament championship
would be decided on the mat in the
135-pound match between Citrus'
Josh Rutherford and Hernando's Max
Morrill.
After two periods, with it all on the
line, the match was squared at 2-2.
In the third and final period, how-
ever, Rutherford jumped out to a 3-2

perfection can often be a diffi-
cult road, something the Seven
Rivers boys basketball team
found out the hard way
Saturday night
Vying for their 27th district
win in a row and second con-
secutive District 1A-6 crown,
the top-seeded Warriors were
instead waylaid by second-
seeded Hernando Christian,
73-71, in overtime in a contest
befitting two good teams.
Lions point guard Marty
George led all scorers with 29
points for Hernando Christian,
whose only two losses on a

The Warriors will now have
to make the long trip to

When asked how his kids

NEW PORT RICHEY -
Victoria Mele had a very emo-
tional roller coaster moment
Saturday.
The Lecanto senior weight-
lifter was both happy and sad
after she made her last lift, a
good one.
She lifted 160 pounds in the
clean and jerk to give her a 315-
pound total at the FHSAA Girls
Weightlifting State Meet at River
Ridge High School. She lifted
155 pounds in the bench press.
She finished fifth in the state
but had major mixed feelings.
"I'm happy but I'm so sad,"
said Mele. "It's over I've worked
four years. It's been such a big
part of my life. I'm going to miss
him (coach Bob LeCours). He'$
'such an amazing guy. It's been
great."


"When you have a last lift, it's.
an emotional ride," said
LeCours. "You have a great deal
of emotion. To end your career
on a good lift is remarkable.
"I'm proud of my team. I am
proud of all of them."
Citrus High's Jessica
Goodfellow finished off her first
year of lifting by lifting a 260-
pound total in the 169-pound
class. She had a 135-pound
bench and a 125-pound clean
and jerk and she tied her best
total.
She was 19th at state.
"I did well," said Goodfellow.
"I wish I would have done bet-
ter"
"She's tough," said Citrus
coach Doug Patton. "I'm proud
of her She has come along way"
Crystal River's Beca Branch
had a 200-pound total. The jun-
ior lifted 100 pounds each in the
bench and clean and jerk She


was making her second trip to
the state meet She was 15
pounds away from taking a sixth-
place medal.
Branch left the meet wanting
more.
"I did a lot better in the coun-
ty meet," Branch said. "I have a
lot to work on for next year"
"She did a great job," said
Crystal River High coach
George Arscott. "She does cheer-
leading and track I wish she had
more time to devote to
weightlifting."
Lecanto High's Summer
Dupler was tied for seventh
place in the 129-pound class. She
had a 150 bench press and a 130
clean and jerk for a 280 total.
Lecanto's Aysia Busbee had a
275-pound total in the 183-pound
class. She had a 135-pound
bench press and a 140-pound
clean and jerk She was 11th in
her class.

The Panthers should be in
for another tough game
when the state playoffs start
on on Thursday. Lecanto
will host the Atlantic

out the regional title with a late
takedown that sealed a 143-
point day for Citrus. That best-
ed runner-up Hernando, who
had 135 points.
"The kids feel ownership in
this title," Porcelli said. "They
keep saying, 'this is our region-
al title.' After Craig collected
his blue ribbon as an individ-
ual regional champion the first
thing he said was, 'It's all about
the team trophy, Coach.'"
While Citrus was busy wrap-
ping up another regional

first-round district game until
this year.
"What I want to say is, we've
slowly and surely started peak-

ment," he said.
Neither coach seemed all
that surprised at the game's
outcome, ironic considering
Seven Rivers won the first two
meetings by scores of 75-48 and
74-60.
"We haven't played well
since Christmas," said
Warriors coach Jim Ervin,
whose team is now 19-7 overall
and 11-1 in district "I'm not
taking anything away from
(Hernando Christian). They've
had a great season and
deserved to win the game."
Seven Rivers shot 66.7 per-

we could go all the way."
Atlantic lost to St.
Augustine in the District
4A-tournament, meaning
Citrus will have to take the
trip across the state to face
the Yellow Jackets.


Crystal River grapplers fin-
ished fourth, David Vreeland
and John Koney at 103 and 125
pounds respectively. The
Pirates' Kevin Drawdy defeat-
ed the 'Canes' David Zukley 12-
6 for third place as both
wrestlers live to grapple again
in next week's tournament.
And last year's regional cham-
pion, Brandon Jones, lost in
the championship match to the
'Canes' Fisher.
"We can't complain. We're
sending four wrestlers to state
next week. By any standard
that's a lot to be proud of,"
Crystal River head coach Craig
Frederick said. "Our three sen-
iors are going back and
Brandon returns as a four-time
state qualifier. You can't get
any better than that"
Lecanto would also join a
hand in the Citrus County
party, sending one of its own to


a 44-point total by halftime, but
the scrappy Lions had netted
33 of their own and Ervin was-
n't pleased about that develop-
ment.
"In the first half I was disap-
pointed because we scored a
bunch of points, shot 18-of-24
from the field," Ervin said,
"and only have an 11-point
lead."
Even after all that, however,
it was a wonder the Warriors
were even able to force an
overtime period to begin with.
Keaton Wahl, who scored a
career-high 19 points, had to
make a 19-foot pull-up jumper
with two defenders on him and
a mere two seconds on the
clock Wahl's shot knotted the
score at 66 and gave the
Warriors another shot after hav-
ing already relinquished ono.
Wahl's heroics withstanding
though, Seven Rivers had evi-
dently lost a beat on offense
after junior Derek LaBahn
headed to the bench with
around five minutes left after

Lecanto's LeM.on
wins 3-point contest
Lecanto senior Garret
LeMon won the 3-point
shootout before Saturday
night's district championship
game, hitting 9-of-15 shots from
behind the arc.
LeMon was the last of 11
shooters and just beat out
Citrus' Jon Ear, who knocked
down eight shots.
"I'd been practicing all week


next week's tournament, giving
the county 11 wrestlers.
Earning that honor was
Thomas Duca, who lost in the
title match to Sebring's
Shaanan Spiegel.
"Our program has grown by
leaps and bounds," said
Lecanto head coach Dick
Slack. 'Just three years ago we
only had eight wrestlers on our
entire team. This year we sent
eight to the regional tourna-
ment These kids have put in
the work and it shows. To have
that many wrestlers make it
here today is a testament to the
kids' commitment" .,
The only match that Citrus
lost in the finals was probably
the most thrilling of the night
as' Dunnellon's Jesse
Richardson defeated Cody,
Neptune at 145 pounds.
"Where's the Chronicle
guy?" Richardson asked after


picking up his fifth foul.
In what Ervin called about
19 minutes of play due to foul
trouble throughout the game,
LaBahn still managed 24
points and was one player
Hernando Christian had trou-
ble solving.
Backing up LaBahn for
Seven Rivers were Ty
Commons with 12 points and
Miles Kauffmann with 11.
As well as Hernando
Christian played down the
stretch to upset the Warriors,
the Lions managed to hit just 6-
of-20 shots from the free throw
line in the fourth quarter and
overtime frame combined.
All those missed baskets
allowed Seven Rivers to hang
around, but the Warriors didn't
shoot nearly as well in the sec-
ond half as they had in the first
Using that factor, Hernando
Christian netted the first four
points of overtime to grab a 70-
66 lead. The Warriors missed
their first four shot attempts in
overtime before Kauffman got


bbeati s'le i vas a. big dhing I
wanted to do," LeMon said.
LeMon hit four of his first
five shots, and then hit two on
the second rack and three on
the third rack. The contest
foreshadowed what was to
come in the game itself against
Citrus, a five-point win for the
district championship.
"I was thinking 'Citrus has it
right now, whoever wins this
wins the game,"' LeMon said.
"I had to beat Citrus."


his victory. "Last week you had
a picture of me losing to (Cody
Neptune). Today I want one of
me winning."
Rounding out the 11
wrestlers advancing from the
county was Brock Gibson, who
lost to Robbie Kunkie in the
consolation match.
"If we can finish in the top
five next week, that will be
great for us," Porcellli
explained. "We're getting Bet-
ter every year. The kids we
have coming in behind these
guys are phenomenal. The best
is yet to come.
: '6"We'wan to be coiidfe&'l
amongst the best in the state,"
Porcelli concluded. "It might
sound cocky but somebody's
got to be the best in the state.
Why not us?"
Spoken like a true Yankee
fan.


a steal, layup and free throw
after being fouled to draw
Seven Rivers back within 70-
69.
George then drove in for a
layup to give him his 28th and
29th points of the evening.
Wahl hit another, big shot,
this time a one-handed floater'
in the lane to cut.the margin
back to 72-71 with 20 seconds
and the Warriors had to rely on
fouling and hoping the Lions
missed free throws.
Remarkably, Hernando
Christian did, giving the
Warriors the ball back with
about 16 seconds.
The optimism was short-
lived, though, when Seven
Rivers turned the ball over
without getting a shot off.
The Warriors are no
strangers to heart-breaking
losses in district finals. In 2004
and 2005, Seven Rivers lost to
St. John Lutheran twice in an
extra ,period. With the loss to
the Lions, that makes three'
times in five years.

After two decades of laborious research, retired Air Force Lt. Col. Edgar "Ed" Miller proudly completed his mission of documenting the World War II i
legacy of the 303rd Bombardment Group (Heavy). :

Local World War II veteran completes work on the legacy of men he fought alongside


CURT EBITZ
Chronicle
A s a young rhan in his early 20s
during World War II, retired Air
Force Lt. Col Edgar "Ed"
Miller. ofCrystal River; was on a
mission. His mission took him
to the flak-filled skies over Nazi
Germany as a co-pilot and pilot
of a B-17 bomber assigned to the 303rd
Bombardment 'Group (Heavy) based at
Molesworth. England.
Miller survived 30 bombing missions, even
though 10 ofthem took him to the heavily defend-
ed Nazi capital of Berlin. Given the city's high
concentration of air defenses, Miller believes he
is among the lucky few and quite possibly the
only 303rd Bombardment Group pilot who com-
pleted 10 missions to Berlin and lived to tell
about it.
The 303rd Bombardment Group flew 364
bombing missions, the most of any of the 60-plus
bombardment groups flying out of England, suf-
fering the loss of 882 crewmembers killed in
action and 772 who became prisoners of war
after being shot down. Because of the high casu-
alty rate, Miller, like most combatants, made it a
point to neither make friends nor learn much
about his compatriots. However, that would
change at a reunion of the 303rd Bomb Group
Association 40 years later
While attending his first reunion in 1985,
Miller accepted the position of membership
chairman for the association. As chairman, he
soon embarked on another mission to record
for future generations the legacy of the men who
valiantly served in the 303rd Bombardment
Group. This mission became a 20-year journey of
honoring his comrades.
Starting with 385 names of 303rd members on
3 x 5 cards, compiled by the preceding member-
ship chairman. Miller began the arduous chal-
lenge of collecting and alphabetizing the names
of the 7.336 personnel who passed through the


Lt. Edgar "Ed" Miller (back row, far left) with
fellow B-17 crewmembers.
303rd's portals from September 1942 to May 1945.
By the end of the first year ofhis journey into
the past. Miller had established a computer data-
base of 1,200 names. After acquiring and meticu-
lously reviewing 125 different official orders, the
number of names grew to more than 3,000 by
1989. By 1995, the list of names reached more
than 5,600. Finally, the remaining names were
discovered in 2004 when a copy of the 303rd's
personnel movement order for its September
1942 transoceanic trip to England aboard the
Queen Matary was found.
While compiling the names and reading the
mission reports. Miller came to know his com-
rades as he learned more about their selfless
dedication and heroic sacrifice. Recalling Andy
Warhol's "15 minutes of fame" comment. Miller's
arduous challenge became a labor of love as he
committed himself to giving each member of the
303rd his 15 minutes of glory.
Miller's 20-year labor of love has become an
epic historical work of several volumes.
The first volume is titled, "'A Group of Heroic
8th Air Force Comrades." Arranged in six
binders with more than 1.800 pages, it contains


the alphabetized names of the 303rd's 7.336
wartime members, to include their rank, service
number, squadron assignments and duties, as
well as the crew position and number of missions
for each flying member
The second volume is titled, "Personnel
Casualties of Triangle 'C.'" Arranged in five
binders with 1,400 pages, it summarizes each
mission and chronicles the fate of each crew
from the 303rd's first bombing mission in
November 1942 to its final 364th mission in May
1945.
The third volume is a special set of two books
called. "The Order of the Purple Heart." This
365-page volume includes the names and cir-
cumstances of those 303rd members killed or
wounded in action, as well as information as to
where 467 members of the 303rd were interred
or memorialized in nine American national
cemeteries in Europe.
Miller's meticulous research also made possi-
ble the production of a CD/ROM called, "The
Molesworth Story," which takes one on a
wartime.iouirney of9,600 pages and 550 photos as
it chronicles the men and missions of the 303rd.
Miller is especially proud that the names and
records of the 303rd's 7,336 members are return-
ing "home" to their World War II base at
Molesworth, England.
Molesworth., today, is an active Royal Air Force
base and home to the United States European
Command Joint Analysis Center: which named a
building for the 303rd. The building's conference
room, named for the 303rd's World War II com-
mander, Maj. Gen. Lewis E. Lyle, will become the
repository for Miller's labor of love at a dedica-
tion ceremony.
Now 87 years old and unable to travel, Miller
will be represented at the ceremony by his
daughter. Suzanne. While Miller may not be
physically present for the ceremony. lie will cer-
tainly be there in spirit as his comrades return to
their wartime home of Molesworth through his

around us
ne of the great parts
about being in the busi-
ness of publishing a
newspaper is that you often get
the opportunity to run into
ordinary people doing extraor-
dinary things.
We are all made of the same
stuff, but some people make
the decision to do some special
things.
During the past week, I've
run into some of those special
people.
Ginger West runs the
Family Resource Center in
Hernando and she changes
peoples' lives. In very simple
ways, she helps find solutions
for people in need. The center
provides counseling and train-
ing for families in need. With
the downturn in the economy,
there are more homeless and
unemployed people living
right here in Citrus County.
One of Ginger's simple solu-
tions: she provides free bicy-
cles to people without trans-
portation so they can travel to
their jobs. Thousands of chil-
dren are provided with
Christmas gifts through the
Family Resource Center, but
this is a group that works tire-
lessly 365 days a year to help
people.
Ginger is a hero.

t was depressing informa-
tion. Bob Butterworth,
secretary of the Florida
Department of Children and
Families, described some of
the challenges his agency
faces in rescuing kids from rot-
ten circumstances.
He put things into an inter-
esting context: "When it came
to the parent lottery, they lost,"
he said of the thousands of
children DCF attempts to help.
DCF has established com-
munity-based agekicies to help
place those youths in foster
homes. In our. area, that
agency is Kids Central.
In addressing a group of
Citrus Countians visiting the
Capitol, Butterworth talked
about his job and his agency.
When authorities are called
to a home where there's evi-
dence of violence, drug abuse,
neglect and who-knows-what,
the decision is made to remove
the child for his or her safety.
The child becomes a ward of
the state and the responsibility
of the community-based
agency.
The community-based
agency seeks a suitable foster
home. Ideally, foster parents
will adopt these children and

NO LOVE FOR CITRUS




County has little



to show for past



year and a half


After a tumultuous search
in 2006 for a county admin-
istrator to replace the
fired Richard Wesch, there was a
sense of optimism when June


Fisher was hired to
emrnment's top job.
While sour grapes
among Wesch sup-
porters and county
commission cynics
lingered, Mrs.
Fisher offered a
fresh start for those


county gov-

THE IS
County adr

OUR OP
Back to sq


wanting to move county govern-
ment into the future.
Unfortunately, Mrs. Fisher
never fully committed to Citrus
County and has leapt at an
opportunity to return to
Highlands County. Less than a
year and a half on the job, appar-
ently, was enough for her to con-
clude she wants out.
While her impending exit has
been executed in an unprofes-
sional manner- with a majority
of commissioners indicating
they did not know she'd applied
elsewhere there undoubtedly
are factors at play driving her
off. While Fisher has refused
comment on her reasons for
leaving, three things are evident
to the public:
The county commission is
dysfunctional (Example 1: gov-
ernment space needs).
Fisher's firing of assistant
administrator Tom Dick was
poorly handled, created resent-
ment among some people and
landed the county in a lawsuit

Another bad idea | O
I was wanting to
respond to the city of
Crystal River buying Three
Sisters Springs. You've got
to be kidding me. I have
lived in the city of Crystal
River for all of my 27
years, and in these 27 caLL.
years I've seen many stu-
pid ideas come out of the 563-
city of Crystal River. This
is right up there with them
trying to buy Pete's Pier. It seems
every year the city council ... comes
up with even more outlandish ideas
about how to waste my tax dollars.
The thing I find so funny about this
idea of the city buying Three Sisters
Springs is, how do they plan on tak-
ing care of this property? They do
such a horrible job of maintaining
the property they already own and
take no responsibility for what dam-
age comes of their work. The city
-owns two public boat ramps, and
these two ramps are in such horri-
ble condition. I, myself, have dam-
aged my trailer this past summer
on the ramp at Pete's Pier.
Looking south
Just think, when and if the park-
way's extended, (U.S.) 19 north of
State Road 50 will look just like
(U.S.) 19 south of State Road 50.
And won't the six lanes of the con-
gested traffic and red lights be nice?
And, you know, it will look just like it
does down there. It can go all the
way to wherever they end this park-
way and make everybody happy.
Separate rags
I just wondered if anybody else
had the same pet peeve I do. This
has happened many times, but yes-
terday we were in a restaurant and
the bus boy came and wiped off a
table near us and then wiped off


(


that should have been anticipat-
ed and avoided.
Fisher allowed herself to get
caught up in the very politics
that are crippling the effective-
ness of the commission.
To varying
SSUE: degrees, each coun-
ty commissioner
ninistrator. voiced confidence
DINION: in her performance
when assessing her
iuare one. first year on the job.
Now, the adminis-
trator our commissioners stood
behind is jumping ship and our
commission is no closer to
orchestrating forward motion for
Citrus County than when Mrs.
Fisher first pulled into town.
It's a bad situation. The best
that could happen immediately
is for commissioners to establish
a shared vision of pressing needs
and have an administrative plan
to ensure county staff knows the
priorities and has resources to
do their jobs. We need to hire a
new administrator who has a
vision, an appreciation for our
unique county and knows how to
get things done.
There's little reason to
bemoan Mrs. Fisher's fickle
response to the challenges here.
She's a likeable person who
walked into an unenviable situa-
tion and stumbled in efforts to
spark county government.
It's just unfortunate that a year
and a half has gone by and the
rut Citrus County was in back
then has only grown deeper.

. the seats and then went to
the next table and did the
same thing. I just can't
believe something like
that. Shouldn't there be
some sort of an ordinance
or a law that restaurants
have to have something
like a Clorox deal, you
know, where they wipe the
579 table off and then maybe
0579 if there's crumbs or some-
thing on the seat, they
should have an extra rag or some-
thing to use? But to use the same
rag and it's just a wet rag, it's
not even a disinfectant wet rag -
on the table and on the seats? I just
wondered if this bothers anybody
else or if anybody's ever noticed it.
Quit playing games
The Three Sisters debacle: Let's
start with going back and looking
up the conservation easement that
was granted to those springs during
the Goodman lawsuit of years ago.
You will find there are many restric-
tions already in place. The new own-
ers of this property bought this
property knowing full well that it's
west of (U.S.) 19, it's a coastal high-
hazard area and no multifamily
development is allowed. Let's quit
playing games with these develop-
ers. Quit sending the prices through
the roof. They're all jumping over
the tax revenue and saying what a
great thing it would be, but there's
no infrastructure and there's no way
they won't pollute the river in Kings
Bay. Put a stop to it now. Quit play-
ing games.
Rung-out voters
This is Jan. 28. We have had 14
calls from Romney, seven from
McCain, all in one day. My husband
and I are so angry we will not vote
for either.

Visioning thanks
On behalf of the Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA), I would
like to extend my thanks to the many
who volunteered their valuable time at
the Manatee Festival this past week-
end, participating in the visioning
process for the city of Crystal River.
These volunteers took part in sur-
veying festival visitors regarding their
vision of Crystal River and the future
of the downtown area. The survey
will greatly help the city and the CRA
formulate a plan for the future devel-
opment of Crystal River.
Specifically, I would like to thank
Valerie Bourdeaux, Jay and Marcy
Chesnicka, Jim Collins, Dennis
Damato, Chris Ensing, Suzanne
Goettelmann, Andrew Houston, Dot
Koehler, Andrea Migliaccio, Terri
Moore, Stephanie Price, Roy
Williams, Ryan Williams, Nancy and
Kurt Woerner, Lee Cooper, Laura Lou
Fitzpatrick, Gail and Jack
Hargreaves, Susan Kirk, Grette and
Jim Miller and Daryl Seaton.
The CRA also would like to thank
the hundreds of community members
and visitors to our city for taking their
time to express their hopes and ideas.
This visioning, though being coordi-
nated by the CRA, is a full community
event With the input of city leaders,
businesses and residents, we hope to
define our project goals for the next
10 years and provide a common plan
for our downtown development in the
near and distant future.
We hope to see everyone at our
upcoming planning seminars sched-
uled next month.

Beautiful picture
Usually on the front page you have
pictures of some kind of disaster, hur-
ricane, floods, tornadoes, etc. What a
beautiful, beautiful picture on the
Chronicle front page Jan. 29 of the
cranes flying over. Dean Hester's pic-
ture was outstanding; he must be very
proud. I think all of the pilots who
flew the ultra-lights should be named
and honored. Citrus County should be
very proud that we have in this coun-
ty people who care about the wildlife.

Life sets priorities
Don Mayo, artist, and I had decided to
"get our feet wet" again with the selling
of his artwork, etc., by opening a booth at
the Crystal River Mall just for the holi-


the Editor -


days. We have had Don's Web site,
www.DonMayo.com, "under construc-
tion" for some time and, in the future,
will advertise upon its completion.
As many of you know, I was hit head
on by a Suburban truck, pulling a boat
motor and trailer on Fort Island Trail
some years ago. With the ton impact, I
suffered a severe brain injury along
with additional traumatic injuries, tak-
ing years of rehabilitation to somewhat
overcome. We had closed our successful
Mayo Gallery and Gifts on U.S. 19, along
with Sue Mayo Advertising.
After our life (especially Don's) was
thrown into a "spin," we thought open-
ing at the Crystal River Mall would be
perhaps a "right time" to start again and
then perhaps involve ourselves in the
Manatee Festival again. But our apolo-
gizes are in order
About mid-December, my mother,
Alida Belle Desper (known as the "tip-
ping the teacup" lady at the end of the
Cedar Creek Assisted Living advertise-
ments, along with the Kappa Alpha
Theta pecan cookbook dedicated to
her), suffered a dangerous blood clot in
her brain and was rushed to Shands
Hospital in Gainesville for surgery. She
now has celebrated her 94th birthday
and is back at Cypress Cove in Crystal
River
We want to thank all of the people at
Cedar Creek Assisted Living, Seven
Rivers and Shands Hospitals, Cypress
Cove Care along with Dr Velasquez and
his wonderful staff for all the concern
they have shown to both my mother
and our family
So now, again, our priorities have
been determined. We trust our cus-
tomers understand, as Hospice of
Citrus County is now making things
easier for us and each day is accepted
with great gratitude.

Let's grow more corn
How much more corn is need-
ed this year to avoid last year's
disastrous soaring food prices
caused by the shortage? The
country cannot afford another
year like that.
At this time last year, every-
body knew that demand would
increase because of ethanol and
worldwide demand, but the free
market farm industry and farm
subsidies did hot react ade-
quately.
So, what is the plan to change
the result this year? The same
plan would probably get the
same disastrous results. Change
is needed.
Suggestion Arrange to loan
money to farmers with fallow
fields in corn country so they
can afford to plant seeds and
buy needed equipment, water,
fertilizer and labor. Perhaps
canceling some of the outdated
farm subsidies would pay for the
cost to the government
Please don't let the lack of
planning hurt our people again.

Political change
Change seems to be the buzz-
word of this election. It seems as
though the country has had
enough of graft, corruption and,
dare I say, bull-headed incompe-
tence? But, just what do we
mean by change? Does change
occur at the cut-and-dried so- .
called debates? Does it occur
when we listen to the same-
"talking heads" trot out their
tired, trite and biased opinions
election after election? Does it
occur when Iowa caucuses
determine the candidate for the
rest of the country as they did in
the last election? Does change
occur by merely invoking the
word change?
In this election, we have the
opportunity to vote for a candi-
date with a different worldview,
a candidate who has supported
many policies that have
improved the lives of Americans
in health, education and
employment. One who can take
the first steps in overturning the
debacle of the Bush administra-.
tion that has turned this country
into something that we no longer
recognize. One who is qualified,
intelligent, has knowledge.of ....
issues and has consistently
worked for social justice. This
candidate is not a rock-star, does
not over-promise with pie-in-
the-sky rhetoric.

This is a time when women
need to prove that their gender
is strength. Not a weakness to be
overcome. When this nation was
founded, a small number of
women, including Abigail
Adams, gently urged their hus-
bands to include them in the
new Constitution. They were
chided for their silly request.
Later, a small number of women
fought for the right to vote,
which was not granted until the
1920s.
After World War II, a small
vanguard of feminists paved the
way for the future feminist
movement, demanding equal
pay. for equal work, protection
against spousal abuse among
other privileges of full citizen-
ship.
Today, we have a fully quali-
fied, experienced, knowledge-
able and practical woman run-
ning for president who can also
provide a woman's unique per-
spective putting this country on
the path to further positive
transformation. This is a brave
action of a woman who has a
proven track record for bravery.
Will women be satisfied to
leave her out there alone?
Women need to put aside their
gender insecurities and not fall
into the trap of setting a higher
standard for women than they
do for men. Women need to vote
for real change.
Remember, "One woman can
change anything, many women
can change everything." But we
don't have to vote for Hillary
Clinton because she is a woman;
we can vote for her because she
is eminently qualified.

for ourselves and our communi-

We, the people, are the care-
takers of this treasure we call
home. But remember, treasure
loses its value if shared with the

treasure, for example, by
increasing the wealth of a few
by allowing future rampant land

pay their fair share and look for

ing further pollution of our

other way when our wildlife is

Thanks for check
I'd like to make a comment about
everyone in Beverly Hills right now. We
just moved here and a lot of people
say that it's not a good place to live,
but I really wanted to thank the man
who dropped off my husband's unem-
ployment check the other
day. Without you dropping
that off, I don't know what S
we'd be doing right now. So
thank you. And thank you,
Beverly Hills, for really mak-
ing a big change around.
Move along or over
In response to Monday's
"Warning ticket" and "Slow CALAL
down"...You should do the 563
speed limit unless conditions I
i.e., rain or inclement
weather prevent it, not 5
mph under it. If traffic is going 10
mph over, then the law of the land
should be to travel with the flow. You
should not drive in the left lane unless
you are passing or making a left turn.
Maybe they don't teach that in drivers
ed anymore ... If you don't want your
bumper ridden, then move with the
flow or get in the right lane. And just
because you're on Social Security
doesn't give you the right to a warn-
ing.
Gaining votes
I'm calling about the Jan. 27 note
about "Congressman to Florida." I
don't understand why you didn't put
the facts after that Sound Off. Florida
will never add a senator since we will
always have two. The number of repre-
sentatives is set at 435. So if Florida
gains a congressman, another state
must lose one because the total will
always be 435. Neither our federal nor
our state taxes will rise if Florida gets
another representative because the
Treasury is going to pay for 435 no
matter what state they're assigned to.
Most Floridians would hope to gain
representatives since it should mean
more influence for our state because
we'll have more votes.
Buy Three Sisters
The city of Crystal River needs to do
everything in its power to obtain.the
Three Sisters property. The marina, I
feel, should be put on the back burner
at this time, and the city should work
with the county and the state to do
whatever it can do to obtain this most
sensitive piece of land and preserve it
for future generations. It would be a
shame to see building to take place on
that property (to the) detriment to the
environment surrounding it, to the .
waterways. I just wish that the city
and the county would come together
and find a way to make this purchase
happen. Speak with the citizens and
let's see if we can't do something to
all come together and purchase this


.(


piece of property for the benefit of
the county and the manatees and the
waterways of our county.
Handicapped parking
My husband and I are both disabled
and we do have a blue tag that hangs
in the window of our car. However, we
bought a license plate with a
Wheelchair emblem on it so
we do not have to hang the
sign on the mirror every time
we park. So please, people,
stop shaking your blue sign
at us. We are legal. We have
a wheelchair tag-on our car.
If you are parking in front of
us, you can't see it. If you're
parking on either side of us,
)579 you can't see it. If you go to
S the back of our car, however,


you will be able to see that
our license plate does have an
insignia on it that gives us the right to
park in a wheelchair parking place or.
a disabled place. So stop shaking
your sign, stop glaring and stop mak-
ing faces. We have the right to be
there ... Please be sure that you go to
the office of the vehicle license
bureau, buy yourself a tag on your
car. You don't have to mess with the
blue one unless you go with another
driver, then you can hang it on your
mirror. Do not drive with them on
your mirror because that is against
the law.
Parkway division
I'm responding to the Sound Off
caller on Jan. 28 about the parkway,
who is willing to pay $4 or more to
avoid (U.S.) 19. Well, if you go down
(County Road) 491 to (U.S.) 98 and
get on the parkway from the Hernando
border, you don't need to get on it in
Citrus. It's a total waste of the envi-
ronment, it's a waste of time and
there's no going back. Once we divide
the county vertically, people are going
to be unsafe, our taxes are going to go
up, all of those roads are going to be
blocked off from the parkway and we
are going to pay for all of the exten-
sion roads to get these people out of
their neighborhoods because their
streets are blocked off.
Fair prices
This is to the person who called in
"Sellers won't sell": This is not a sell-.
ers' market, it is a buyers' market. I'll
sell you my house if you want it, you
know. But the thing is, you have to be
willing to pay a fair price and all. But
anyway, this is a buyers' market.
Impact fees
If I build a shopping plaza in Citrus
County, I have to pay a large impact
fee. Then when I go to rent a store and
someone comes in and wants to open
a family shop, he has to pay an
impact fee. How many impact fees do
you collect? Isn't that double taxation?

bling laws or lack criti
cal experience. Take a quick
look. (1 suppose I could be over-
looking the nextJimmie Carter
by excluding Mike Huckabee!)
Sen. John McCain, the likely
Republican nominee, is an
acclaimed war hero because
he spent years as a POW.
But his military service gives
him no special claim to the
presidency. Nor does com-
manding a military unit pro-
vide experience toward run-
ning a civilian government. His
last 20 years have been spent in
the Senate as a legislator; not a
leader or manager.
He admits little understand-
ing of economics, a point well
supported by his record of


indulging in "class ;.

Her claim to have
the experience to
be ready on "day
one" is patently false. She has
never led, managed or gov-
erned anything, private or pub-
lic. She is roundly disliked by
the military, and she would not
be considered a serious candi-
date were it not for being a


woman and married to a popu-
lar president. All that said, she
is well educated, very bright, a
quick learner and an able
politician who could handle
the job.
Sen. Barack Obama, the
least-experienced candidate, is
bright, eloquent, inspiring, full
of hope and promise. He's for
"change" and bipartisanship,
but he votes the liberal
Democrat agenda with no com-
promising. He is the choice of
leftist financier George Soros,
of Moveon.org and the radical-
left blogs.
Obama won his senate seat
two years ago, only because
the favored Republican
dropped out with marital prob-
lems. He is a well-educated
lawyer and civil servant, but


has no experience in manage-
ment, governance, the military
or private sectors.
Nonetheless, with his intelli-
gence and charisma, and with
help from seasoned advisers,
he could make a good go at
being president
One will become president. I
have preferences, but no real
anxiety.
The next president will be
limited by the realities and
staggering responsibilities of
office. He or she will not be
able to "bring the troops home"
after seeing classified data on
the consequences of withdraw-
ing from Iraq before stabiliza-
tion.
Universal health insurance
won't be passed so long as sen-
ators can filibuster. Likewise,


tax increases (or tax cuts) and
Supreme Court nominees will
be filibustered as the minority
did President Bush's choices.
Like a massive ship, our
nation will always move very
slowly in response to attempts
to change its course. Amen!

Often what they find in fos-
ter parents, though, is that the
adults are "children shop-

in a child, they realize it's just
not a good fit for them.
The result? Foster children
are bounced around. It's not
uncommon for a child to live
in a dozen or more foster
homes over a 10-year period.
Each time they're bounced
around, they have to adjust to
different circumstances and
different people.

I'm calling in reference to the
speed limits on Citrus Springs,

the Mini Farm area in Citrus

should be a phone number or a
direct line to the Citrus County
Sheriff's (Office) so that when
somebody passes on Citrus
Springs Boulevard when the
speed limit is 45 and you are
going 45, that we could call
that number and let him know

in some cases, that helps start a

One kick-in-the-gut insight
was that many of these chil-

their home because they'd
rather be abused by family
members than strangers.
Some strides have been
made to offer hope to these
children, including a require-
ment to send them to the same
school if they're moved to a
different foster home in the
same school district; and the
state will pay college tuition

Reduce taxes
The citizens of Florida have
shown their demand for
reduced property taxes, spend-
ing that's in control and not
out of control. County commis-
sioners and constitutional offi-
cers: Are you listening?
Countywide, we are three-quar-
ters, 75 percent, who want tax
reform. We are fed up with the
overspending, the frivolous
spending and the threats of
lost services. Do your job,
reduce taxes, cut frivolous
spending and serve the citizens
of your county.
Political moves
In reference to the just-com-
pleted Florida election for dele-
gates of both parties, I have
heard that the Florida
Republican Legislature set the
date for this election. Including
both parties to participate on
the same day makes very good
economic sense. Now before the
vote, the Democratic National
Party said that if the Democrats
vote on the designated day,
Florida's delegates would not
count. When the winner takes all
of the delegates, the decision by
the party is breathtaking to me.
Any decision the Democratic
National Party now makes on
the Florida delegates will smack
of election fraud. Allowing the
Florida delegates to Clinton,
Obama could say they just want-
ed to see if Clinton won. Then
they would designate them. On
the other hand, if the party kept
their word and Clinton lost the
nomination because of the dele-
gate vote, well, we all get the
picture there.

The Crystal River veterinari-
an has long been concerned
about over-development of our
community and Florida in gen-

Three Sisters Springs property
in Crystal River with high-den-
sity condominiums was the
final straw. Dr. Nayfield started
making telephone calls, writ-
ing letters and joining organi-
zations. And before you knew it
there were a lot of people in
Crystal River and Citrus
County willing to try one more
time to save the property from
development. A half-dozen

CITRUS CouNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


Fair Tax a viable alternative to broken system


RICK IVMoc. CK
Special to the Chronicle
he Sunday, Feb. 3,
Commentary section
carried an opinion
piece regarding the Fair Tax
proposal of a national sales
tax. The commentary was
filled with so many misrepre-
sentations and errors, it's dif-
ficult to know where to start.
The best way is to provide the
facts and let the reader
decide.
First, the 22 percent that
Fair Tax proposers speak to
are embedded in the price of
everything we buy. These are
taxes paid by the corpora-
tions during the manufactur-
ing and distribution of goods
that would be eliminated by
the Fair Tax. These taxes are
are invisible to the con-
sumer. The proposed Fair
Tax would replace that 22
percent of federal taxation
with a 23 percent sales tax
that also would be embedded
in the price of goods or serv-
ices. So the consumer would
see no real difference in
prices. There is no claim by
the Fair Tax proponents that
prices would drop as the
author claims.
The author characterizes
the embedded taxes as pay-
roll taxes; this is a complete
misrepresentation. Payroll
taxes are visible to the con-
sumer as they are taken out
of your paycheck and a com-
pletely separate issue than
those taxes that are now
embedded in the price of
goods and services. Fair Tax
would eliminate payroll
taxes at the federal level as
well as all other federal taxes


on goods, services and other
income sources. So you
would ncI onger' I'wve income
tax or FICA re- ved. Look at
your current paycheck, add
income tax and FICA back
into your take home pay and
that is what you would be
receiving each pay period.
Let's look at the math pre-
sented to make the claim that
the FairTax is actually 30
percent. The author uses two
methods to try to prove his
claim and it's basically an
apples and oranges compari-
son. If you remove the 22 per-
cent of federal taxes embed-
ded in the cost of goods and
services on an item now cost-
ing $100, it leaves $78 for the
company to meet other
expenses and for profit.
Again, the author erroneous-
ly calls this 22 percent pay-
roll taxes. He then goes on to
provide an erroneous exam-
ple of a purchase under the
Fair Tax. What he fails to
acknowledge is his example
is based on two methods, the
first is what's known as tax
inclusive and the second is
known as tax exclusive. Using
the same methods, the cur-
rent 22 percent embedded
tax would be slightly over 28
percent using the tax exclu-
sive method the author used
to imply the Fair Tax was a 30
percent tax.
Here's an example using
the same methods. An inclu-
sive tax rate is the rate with
the taxes embedded in the
consumer price of the good or
service. An exclusive tax rate
is based on the cost of the
good or service before taxes.
While it's obvious by this
chart how the inclusive tax


rate is determi. 1, the exclu-
sive rate is obtained by divid-
ing the taxes by the untaxed
value of a good or service (on
the chart this is the Money to
Supplier after Taxes). That
gives you the rate you would
need to multiply this pretax
value to obtain the final sales
price. Another of the author's
errors is implying the sales
tax would be added at the
point of purchase as is done.
with state sales taxes.

A TALE OF TWO TAXES
Cost of item. $100
Emrnbeddled sales tax. $23
Money to suppler after tax $77
Tax rate inclusive: 23 percent
Tax rate exclusive- 30 percent
Cost of item- $100
Emrredded taxes $22
Money to supplier after tax $78
Tax rate inclusive. 22 percent
Tax rate exclusive- 28 percent

What you will have under
Fair Tax is this. A good or
service that now costs $100
will still cost about $100,
actually it would be about
$101. The eliminated embed-
ded federal taxes that make
up about 22 percent of the
cost of that good or service
will be replaced with an
embedded sales tax of about
23 percent. The major differ-
ence to the consumer is that
their paycheck would no
longer be reduced by income
taxes or FICA, a spending
power increase, not the pay
cut the author is trying to
claim.
As far as the prebates.
These are based on the
expected taxes paid by a per-
son earning at the poverty
level for necessities. Those


monies would further
increase the purchasing
power of low income earn
As far as the impact c
wealthy, the author i'- ;
it would not be significant.
However, that's not the point
of the prebate and the
author's argument plays to
the class warfare arguments
that are emotional, not factu-
al.
The Fair Tax also would
capture monies lost to illegal
transactions and payments.
Profits made on illegal activ-
ity that now escape the
income tax system would be
taxed as these monies are
used to purchase goods and
services.
There are several other
misrepresentations and
errors in the article, but I
hope these examples will
cause the reader to question
Mr. Cristie's other claims
about the Fair Tax. There are
two books that provide a
clear picture of what the Fair
Tax is and how it really
works. The. second book,
"Fair Tax: The Truth:
Answering the Critics," pro-
vides responses to all of Mr.
Christie's claims, and
explains, probably better
than I, the misrepresenta-
tions he made as to the
effects of this proposal.
There also is much informa-
tion on the Internet.
The proposal has been
reviewed by very knowledge-
able economists and finan-
cial analysts. A recent analy-
sis by Lawrence J. Kotlikoff,
Boston University Professor
of Economics, provides a
case study to determine the
tax implications for a typical


midk., income couple with
children. The tax savings
,r the Fair Tax proposal
significant. So, while Mr.
,istie has a degree in
tisiness Management, as do
1. the people who reviewed
and analyzed the Fair Tax
proposal have significantly
more knowledge and spent
much time reviewing this
proposal than both Mr.
Cristie or I. I urge people to
read about this proposal
themselves.
Finally, I do agree with Mr.
Christie that our current sys-
tem is broken. It's full of spe-
cial interest loopholes that
our legislators have enacted
to please their contributors or
pander for the votes of their
constituency. It is politics.
Regardless of the plan, it
must be simple, straightfor-
ward and transparent.
However, it is my belief that
this is a viable alternative
and it should be given serious
consideration. I think the
beauty of this system is you
are no longer being taxed on
your work, only on your
spending. You are in greater
control of you tax bill and
your efforts to work harder
and increase your earnings
would no longer be penalized.
You will decide how much of
that income will be taxed
based on increased spending
or not taxed because you
chose to save and invest that
money for your future.

Citrus County Chamber of Commerce sponsors pre-session trip to Tallahassee


JIM HUNTER

If there was one thing a busload of
Citrus Countians took away from a
whirlwind visit to the seat of govern-
ment in Tallahassee last week, it was
this: Don't even think of asking for
money.
Legislators and officials in
Tallahassee painted a grim picture of
the state's budget for Citrus business
representatives, officials and citizens
who went on the annual Chamber of
Commerce trek to the state capital to
talk to legislators and administration
officials before the spring session.

them early on and effectively cut
off any lobbying for more funding for

trek to the state capital to talk to legislators and
administration officials before the spring session.


any local programs that it was not
only going to be a big budget-slashing
session for the coming 2008-09 fiscal
year budget, but legislators were even
going to have to revise the current
budget in the first week of the session
by cutting a billion dollars in spend-
ing.


In fact, the group was told, with the
state looking at having to cut $2 bil-
lion from it's upcoming budget, it was
going to be a session of how badly pro-
grams get cut and how much trust
funds get raided, rather than who gets
any new money for projects.
A legislative aide briefed the group


on Amendment 1. passage and said
that if the measure seemed complicat-
ed, that was because there were great
pains taken to make sure it would pass
constitutional muster, though he
allowed that there are challenges, and
theremay be more to come. Fasano, R-
New Port Richey, however, told the
group that legislators are extremely
confident the amendment will stand
up to any challenge.
The aide said the amendment,
which will mean $9.3 billion in lost
revenue over five years, comes at a
time when revenue to the state is the
lowest since 1990. He said the creation
of the amendment, as is often the
case, was a set of trade-offs, and while

nationally in terms of flexi-
ble work programs, policies
and culture.
The award recognizes
employers that use work-
place flexibility to meet
employer and employee
goals. The awards are pre-
sented annually by the
Greater Tampa Chamber of'
Commerce and the When
Work Works national part-


ners Families and Work
Institute, the U.S. Chamber
of Commerce's Institute for a
Competitive Workforce, and
the Twiga Foundation.
Scores are tallied by meas-
uring employer responses
against national data from
Families and Work Institute's
National Study of
Employers, plus responses
from employees. One
Residential Drywall employ-
ee wrote that flexible hours
and being allowed to
telecommute make it possi-
ble for her to grow profes-

Residential Drywall pro-
vides fully paid medical
insurance for each employ-
ee, as well as laptop comput-
ers linked to the office server


to facilitate flexible working
hours. Both factors play a
major role in the company's
high employee-retention
rate.
Residential Drywall
received the award at the
recent 2007 Annual
Workforce Conference at the
Stetson University College of
Law in St. Petersburg, Fla.,
and will be recognized with

in 12 Florida counties and
generated $26 million in rev-
enue last year. It has com-
pleted more than 30,000 resi-
dential projects since its


inception.
In 2002, Residential
Drywall created a window-

The Citrus County Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting for Life South Community Blood Center Citrus Region. Pictured

Ambassadors Jennifer Duca and Lillian Smith. Pictured back row: Chamber Ambassador Crystal Jefferson, Tom Davis, Ambassadors
Wendy Hall, David Heinz, Executive Director Kitty Barnes and Ambassador John Porter. The new home of LifeSouth Community Blood
Center in Inverness has a lot of history under its roof. It's one of the oldest homes in Citrus County and the very first with indoor plumb-
ing. Located at 301 W. Main Street, the George Carter house, built in 1903, bears the name of its original owner, who was the third
sheriff of the county. Branch Manager Samantha Brown says the highly visible downtown location is easy for donors to find and offers
plenty of space for parking.


he strawberries are
almost ready and the fun
is just around the cor-
ner! Two fun filled days of art,
crafts, entertainment, games,
contest, prizes and delicious
food will take place on
Saturday and Sunday, March 1
and 2 at the 21st annual Floral
City Strawberry Festival.
The primary focus of the
event is -of course the celebra-
tion of strawberries by the
berry, by shortcake, by the flat or
covered in chocolate! This
year's event will again feature
strawberry delicacies to tempt
the palate. Did you know that all
our strawberries are grown
locally? That is right, Ferris
Farms in Floral City is the sole
provider of all the strawberries
used at the Floral City
Strawberry Festival!
The old fashioned festival will
begin at 9 a.m. Saturday from
and end at 4 p.m. Sunday. Each
day will include continuous live
entertainment, contests, chil-
dren games and activities and
more than 200 art and craft
booths and more than 24 food
booths to tempt your appetite.


Special features include an
antique car show, pony rides,
rock climbing wall and
Strawberry Princess Pageants
and continuous children's activ-
ities. The Little Miss and Miss
Strawberry Princess pageants

It takes hundreds of volun-
teers to make this event happen.
If you have at least 4 hours dur-
ing the weekend and are ready
to join in on the fun, please don't
hesitate to give us a call! Many
local businesses take this oppor-
tunity to get out into the com-
munity and not only volunteer
their time, but is this time to net-
work with others.
This event is hosted by the
Citrus County Chamber of
Commerce. The event is also a
venue for many local non for

lize this opportunity to raise
funds for their causes. They

CHAMBER
Continued from Page 1A

elderly poor whose property
-was worth less than the
threshold for the additional
homestead exemption, there
is a local option law that
allows counties to add up to
$50,000 in property tax
exemptions for elderly poor
who meet certain criteria.
On the other hand, he
noted, while the amendment
granted new exemptions, it
did not address the local gov-
ernments' ability to raise
their property tax millage to
the maximum allowance of 10
mills.
Citrus resident Gene
McGee, a Tallahassee lobbyist
who works with the chamber
to organize the trip each year,
shared Fasano's perspective
of the budget. "It's bad; it's
very bad."
He said, "Money is the No. 1
issue," adding that any pro-
gram was liable to be cut. "It's
all, 'Where are we going to
cut,' "he said.
Fasano said his goal was to
try to protect the state's
Affordable Housing and
Transportation trust funds
and he had been successful so
far. He said he felt affordable
housing and transportation
were key to growth counties
like Citrus.
He said he thinks the tax
relief amendment in partic-
ular the portability portion -
will help revive the economy
and would welcome an eco-
nomic stimulus from the fed-
eral government.
Fasano said one of his goals
before leaving office is to see
the Suncoast Parkway II
extension substantially under
construction. "To me that's an
economic stimulus," he said.
Officials from the state
Department of
Transportation (DOT) briefed
the Citrus group on the status
of that project, which was
stalled in the 1990s by some
opponents, ending just south
of the county border on U.S.
98.
The group got to see the
most recent map of the proj-
ect and learned that the
extension project is in the
early design phase and when
that design is 30 percent done
this summer, DOT officials
will go to the county commis-
sion for a public workshop on
the project. The commission
has endorsed the parkway


extension through Citrus in
the past, and DOT officials
will be gauging that support
again.
One DOT official said that
one of the things missing was
a champion of the extension,
which appeared to surprise
chamber members who have
steadfastly supported the
parkway. She said opponents
continue to exert pressure,
and if supporters want to have
an effect, they will have to
continue to have input at
meetings and in communica-
tions, too.
The officials noted that the
costs keep going up and the
revenues of late have been
going down, but the DOT con-
tinues to go forward in
defined stages, even though
the project is not currently
funded.
Sen. Charles Dean, R-
Inverness, addressed the
Citrus group in the morning
and noted that 74 percent of
the voters in Citrus voted for
Amendment 1, and he said
that wouldn't be the end of the
issue. He said, "We need to
have comprehensive tax
review in this state." He
promised the legislature was-
n't finished with the tax issue.
Dean said that a No. 1 issue
with him is water, and he will
continue to monitor any
attempts to move it around
the state. He said the water
districts should be transpar-
ent as to the issue. He said
transparency is also needed
in all government budgets
from the Citrus County
Commission and Sheriff's
Office to the state budget. He
said he was fighting for the
smaller counties that had no
ability to deal with the loom-
ing severe cuts in state funds.
Inverness Council member
Marti Consuegra presented
Dean with a petition from resi-
dents asking for help on home
insurance. She said the resi-
dents couldn't afford the rates,
and some on fixed incomes
were in danger of losing their
homes because of escalated
premiums.
Rep. Ron Schultz spoke to
the Citrus group over lunch.
The freshman representative,
who is the former property
appraiser for Citrus, said he
had four impressions. First
was that in Tallahassee things
are discussed not in terms of
voters but taxpayers. Second,
it was a bad year to go to the
capital with the budget cutting
that was going to have to be
done. Third, he said it seemed


to him that term limits had
contributed to the economic
problems. Without anyone to
remember other downturns in
the past, legislators had not
realized the inflated bubble
would burst. "We'd made
believe those real estate prices
were real," he said. Even in
the face of artificially low
interest rates, he said, "We
refused to accept reality."
He said the one thing he
might be able to get through
this session was $40,000 for the
Citrus County Harvest pro-
gram. It wasn't a lot, compara-
tively, and feeding the hungry
at least might a chance of get-
ting funded this year, if nothing
else. But he emphasized, "We
are in a desperate financial
situation."
After lunch, Secretary Holly
Benson, who heads the
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation,
addressed the Citrus group. A
very upbeat Benson discount-
ed stories that Florida was a
waning state.
She pointed out the continu-
ing growth in the state and the
increase in professional
licenses each year, including
those in construction and
related trades. She explained
how her agency was trying to
be more efficient and to
reduce fees and governmental
bureaucracy.
Her lively upbeat style and
humor, combined with sympa-
thy for businesses dealing with
government prompted one
member in the audience to ask
if she was interested in being
the administrator for Citrus
County. She laughed and said
she would probably like Citrus
County but had an obligation
to fulfill for the governor.
The group was then briefed
by Florida Senate President
Ken Pruitt, who said the
Senate was aggressively
addressing the budget-cutting
needs. He said state legislators
would probably file 3,500 bills
in the Senate, but only 10 per-
cent would pass.
He said that in spite of the
current economic conditions,
he was positive about the
state's future. He also said the
legislature was going to
address the insurance indus-
try in relation to hurricane
premiums which have yet to go
down.
He said, "It's cloudy out
there as to why they did what
they did." He said the state's
insurance pool is only a tem-
porary stopgap. Of the insur-
ance industry's actions, he had


this to say: "We're committed
to getting answers....We are
going to get to the bottom of it."
Florida Department of
Children and Families (DCF)
Secretary Bob Butterworth
also briefed the Citrus group
on his philosophy at the
agency and the huge problem
of foster children. Butterworth
served for many years at the
state's attorney general before
recently taking over at DCE
Butterworth said the agency
concentrates on keeping
abused children in their own
home whenever possible
because when they become
foster children, that in itself is
just another form of abuse of
children who have done noth-
ing wrong
He said focusing on keeping
the children in their homes
whenever possible, even if the
parents have to be removed,
makes more sense than send-
ing them off to a string of foster
homes.
He said the system is such
that many foster children who
have "aged out" reached the
age of 18 as a ward of the state
in the foster child system and
then released on their own -
have said they would rather
have stayed with their abusive
family situations than have
gone through the foster care
system.
While he acknowledged
some are adopted and there
are many good foster parents,
he said the system as a whole
is failing the children who can
be passed around 12 to 20
times before becoming 18.
He said his guiding focus is
for the agency to operate with
a sense of urgency and to take
action quickly and completely
- and use common sense for
children's welfare rather than
inflexible, illogical rules
when they threaten that wel-
fare.
One thing his agency is try-
ing to do is to support the fos-
ter children after they turn 18.
The program doing this is
called The Road to
Independence. The program
finds jobs and gives the par-
ticipants a stipend, pays
tuition and finds jobs for up
to 20 hours a week for stu-
dents.
Butterworth said it depends
on the community to support
the program. He asked the
chamber to support the pro-
gram and to help find jobs for

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


Make amends with


your garden soil


he key to successful spring
gardening, especially with
annual flowers and veg6ta-
bles, is good soil. For peak per-
formance, plants require oxygen,
nutrients and water.
Soil texture plays the.
most important role in
determining whether
or not those three
needs are met suffi-
ciently to allow the Z
plant to become estab-
lished and perform to i
expectations. Desirable
soil has the ability to
hold water while allow- Joan B]
ing for adequate FLOE
drainage. It also pro-
vides proper oxygen for FR E
root development LIV
While many of us
strive for beautiful landscape dis-
plays, we are frequently faced
with less-than-desirable soil con-
ditions. In fact, one of the favorite
things to complain about here in
Florida is our sugar sand "you
call this soil?"
Transplants from other parts of


r


I


the country used to black, rich
dirt cannot possibly imagine any-
thing grow ing in our sand. Yet our
sand is not necessarily a bad
thing. How many of you have ever
dug in the rock and clay
in the zones further
north of Florida?
Digging in our sand is
relatively easy and it
does provide for good
.> drainage. Sugar sand is
just not conducive to
holding onto nutrients
or water. With our year-
round warmer temper-
adshaw atures that ensure
I|DA- rapid decomposition of
DLY the organic materials
IDLTY in our soil, the organic
!NG components are usual-
ly used very quickly.
Thus, there appears to be a need
for more fertilizers, or so we
think. Fertilizing does provide
nutrients to vegetation, but to give
plants a good foundation, we
should provide organic rich soil.

An old painting, a pie safe, and heirloom dinnerware


Dear John: I would like
to know how old this
painting is and if it is
worth anything. It is 13 inches
high by 28 inches wide. I
bought it at a yard sale 35 years
ago. At the bottom right hand
corner it looks like a
name, but I cannot
make it out S.S.,
Internet
Dear S.S.: In the
photograph of the
back of your land-
scape picture I can
see the words
"copyright EM.
Stone." I was not
able to find a listing John S
for EM. Stone. The SIKOF
label indicates the
picture is a com- AT
mercial-grade print
The overall condition appears
to be poor. Even though it
might be a hundred years old,
potential dollar value is catch-
as-catch-can.
Dear John: I purchased the
1800s pie safe in the photo
years ago. The other photo is of
a toolbox, I believe. I would
like to sell them. I see many dif-
ferent prices online and would
like to know your opinion on


the price range. Both pieces
are in good original condition.
- VS., Internet
Dear V.S.: I think if you get
close to $1,000 for your pie safe
you will be doing well.
Potential dollar value for the
tool chest is $100 to
$200.
Dear John: I
spoke with you a
while ago on your
radio show and am
sending photo-
graphs as you sug-
gested. We received
this dinnerware set
a- A as -a wedding gift
korski from my in-laws;
SKI'S they had received it
as a wedding gift
iC from my husband's
grandparents.
I love it and used it daily. I
even put the soup bowls in the
toaster oven. A few years ago
while living in Panama City, we
saw a single cup and saucer
selling for $5 each. Now I only
use them for special occasions.
My set includes four each of
dinner plates, soup bowls,
sandwich or salad plates, and


ABOVE: This land-
scape painting might
be more than a hun-
dred years old, but
its value is uncer-
tain. It appears to be
a commercial-grade
print. i 3: : This
piece of dinnerware
was manufactured
by Metlox Potteries.
It's part of the
"Homestead Provin-
cial" series. A com-
plete set could fetch
hundreds of dollars.

SOIL
Continued from Page 6E

When planting a shrub in the
landscape, home gardeners
often dig a hole and backfill
around the plant with manure,
top soil, or peat moss. This has
been the way we have always
been taught to do it Current
research has shown that this
gardening practice is not neces-
sary No longer do we advise
landscapers and homeowners
to amend the soil in the hole of
the tree or shrub. It can actually
hinder the growth of the plant's
roots and/or create a high main-
tenance plant both of which
will eventually stress the plant
Initially, the tree or shrubs
seem to thrive in the generously
rich material. Trouble arises
when the tree's roots begin to
grow beyond the rich soil and
find the native sugar sand. As
the pampered root system


UA


grows, it begins to retreat from
the natural sandy soil and go in
search of the organic soil. This
will eventually cause girdling or
insufficient roots to provide for
healthy plants.
Amending the entire flower
and vegetable bed is one of the
best ways to improve sandy soil
conditions. Some of the best
sources of organic matter are
fine pine bark (pieces less than
one-half inch), leaf mold, com-
post, composted manure or

peat Adding a three- to four-
inch layer of organic matter
allows the bed to be built up
and improves drainage.
Organic matter also increases
the soil's ability to hold nutri-
ents which enhances plant
growth. Incorporate the organ-
ic matter into the upper six to
ten inches of the native soil by
tilling or spading. Amend gar-
den beds approximately three
weeks prior to planting.

Viburnum brings versatility


JANE WEBER/For the Chronicle
LEFT: With Walter's viburnum, flowers are individually small but bloom in large, flat-topped, showy clusters at the tips of twigs.
RIGHT: Walter's viburnum is a small, upright, evergreen tree that can grow to as high as 30 feet tall. Some kinds are shorter, denser,
and well suited for pruning into an attractive hedge.


In recent years there has
been more interest in the
use of native plants in the
garden. In its natural form,
Walter's viburnum, Viburnum
obovatum, is a small, upright,
evergreen tree that matures
from 10 to 30 feet tall with a
spread of 6 to 10 feet
Look for its showy white
flowers this month along
Crystal Street by the library in
Crystal River and both sides of
Citrus Avenue north of Turkey
Oak Drive. This native prefers
wet, sandy, acid soil rich in
humus.
Don't despair if you have a
small lot in the dry sand hills.
Plant growers have selected
cultivars for certain desirable
characteristics: denser foliage,
more profuse and longer flow-
ering, shorter stature, prun-
ability and drought tolerance.
The variety 'Densa' is a dense
shrub that grows to 10 feet tall
and 4 feet diameter in about 10
years with no pruning.
Need a viburnum that can be
pruned and kept as a 4-foot ball
or hedge? Then be sure to
select V.o. 'Whorled Class,' a
compact variety. 'Mrs.
Schiller's Delight' is a dwarf
selection with more flowers
and a longer-lasting blooming
season.
So long as the soil is amend-
ed with organic material,
Walter's viburnum adapts well
to the garden with weekly irri-
gation in summer and every
other week in winter. Fertilize
in spring, summer and fall with
a time-released 12-2-14 formu-
la with trace minor elements.


As with most flow-
ering shrubs, prune
for shape and size
after flowering has
stopped. You will be
sacrificing the sum-
mer fruit when you
prune. The bonus is
that pruning may
induce a second
blooming.
Flowers are indi-
vidually small but
born in large, flat-
topped, showy clus-

ters at the tips of twigs. Some
varieties start blooming in win-
ter and even have a few flowers
in the fall. At Cracker Days dur-
ing the Spring at the Springs,
Feb. 23 and 24 at Rainbow
Springs State Park on U.S. 41
north of Dunnellon, Walter's
viburnum will be at the height
of its bloom. Friends of


Rainbow Springs
will have plants for
sale. Knowledgeable
growers will be
available to answer
gardening questions.
The fruit is an
elliptical drupe that
starts red and
matures to black.
Birds and other
wildlife depend on it
for food. The dense
cover provides excel-
lent nest sites for


birds. An eastern towhee usual-
ly nests in a thicket only 3 feet
above the ground and within
yards of my porch.
Dark green leaves are oppo-
site, small to 1.5 inches, widest
in the middle with somewhat
obscure, rounded marginal
teeth. The twigs are reddish.
The trunk is dark reddish


brown with rough small plates
at maturity.
Walter's viburnum ranges
throughout Florida north to
South Carolina and west into
Alabama in Zones 6 to 9. While
its natural habitat is wetter
floodplains, woodlands and riv-
erbanks, the cultivars adapt well
to cultivation, pruning, occas-
ional irrigation and fertilization.
Slow-growing, pest- and dis-
ease-resistant, its lifespan .is
about 50 years, making Walter's
viburnum an attractive addi-
tion to any garden.

cups and saucers. I also have a
soup tureen, large platter, a
large pitcher with top and a
smaller pitcher, a bread dish,
an assortment of additional
pieces, including a wooden,
holder for the tbodiimefif con-
tainers. It is a beautiful set, and
it also has a candle holder and
bowl with a pour and handle.
Sorry the photos are a little
blurry. There are three scenes,
the woman carrying buckets
on her shoulders, as you can
see on the soup bowl. On the
bottom is "Homestead
Provincial, Poppytrail, Cali-
fornia made (indecipherable)"
This is a family heirloom that
we love, but seeing that price
on just two pieces over ten
years ago has me curious as to
its value. Can you tell me what
the worth of this set is? I love
your show and column. -
P.DiL., Internet
DearP.DiL: Your folksy deco-
rated dinnerware was manufac-
tured by Metlox Potteries locat-
ed in Manhattan Beach,
California. The name Metlox is a
contraction of "metallic oxide."
Metlox opened in 1927 and was
producing dinnerware by the
1930s. During the early 1930s,
the company came out with
Poppytrail dinnerware, which is
currently popular among collec-
tors of Metlox Pottery. The com-
pany continued in business
until 1989. The Homestead
Series was based on early
American folk art themes
depicting various farm scenes.
The set you have is
Homestead Provincial, with
decorations in dark green and
burgundy In the current mar-
ketplace your set would likely
sell in the mid-hundreds. It is
nice you plan on passing the
set on in the family. Be sure to
write down the particulars of
the owners for the future.
