Jessie's.Place, a facility named in honor of Jessica Lunsford that would act as an advocacy center for children who have been the

annual Jessie's Ride fundraiser, even
though the two men are on opposite
sides of a lawsuit that Dawsy has
promised to fight, and which many
bikers at the event said they didn't

Both men spoke passionately
about the need to continue the annu-
al motorcycle ride from New Port
Richey to Crystal River in support of
Jessie's Place, a future Citrus County
advocacy center for abused children.
But when they spoke to the crowd,


neither mentioned the litigation.
Rainy weather was blamed for the
low turnout, with only 300 bikers
attending. Thousands of bikers par-
ticipated last year.
But some bikers didn't show for the
fundraiser after they heard Lunsford
.had notified the sheriff's office this
week of his intent to sue for negli-
gence in the 2005 murder of his
daughter Jessica Marie Lunsford.

DAVE SIGLER/Chronicle
Margaret Nolan talks about the Humane Society of Inverness,
which she started In 2004 at her home on Mohican Trail. Nolan
only does adoptions from her shelter by appointment and has no
facility to show animals to the general public. She Is working on
building a shelter to house the animals on the back of the 6 acres
she owns at the end of Mohican Trail.


MIKE WRIGHT

Chronicle

The Humane Society of
Inverness is housed in a
mobile home near the end of
Mohican Trail, a sandy dirt
road with deep craters that
make driving an adventure.
There are no signs announc-
ing the location. There is no
available parking, other than
a short driveway.
A plywood fence shields
dogs from whatever public
dare venture down that road.
Barking can be heard from the
back yard.
The home belongs to
Margret Nolan, formerly
Margret Meier until her mar-
riage in 2005 to John Nolan.
Margret Nolan, president and
founder of the Humane
Society of Inverness, says that,


for insurance reasons, she
usually does not allow the pub-
lic into the back yard where
the dogs are penned up.
"I have nothing to hide," she
said, while leading visitors to
the back.
Thirty-nine puppies and
adult dogs are housed in pens
of various sizes. The pens are
covered with tarps. Smaller
pens contain puppies and dogs
in a converted shed.
Nolan said the operation is
not a shelter, though its Web
site describes the Humane
Society of Inverness as a "no
kill shelter." She said adop-
tions occur on weekends at
the society's booth at
Howard's Flea Market and
that they rarely happen with-
out an appointment at her
home.

thought they were lost
"I said, 'Don, it can't be back
here,"' Philp said.
They found Margret Nolan's
house. Nolan wasn't there, but
someone else with the
Humane Society met them to
deliver the dog that Philp
picked out on petfinder.com.
Philp completed the adop-
tion and paid $250 for the dog.
The couple left unimpressed.
'The place just looked dirty,"
Mrs. Philp said. "There was


dirt and mud everywhere."
The Humane Society of
Inverness is not affiliated with
other Humane Society groups.
In fact, Humane Society is a
generic name.
Any group can call itself a
Humane Society, said Jennifer
Hobgood, Florida state direc-
tor of the Humane Society of
the United States' office in
Tallahassee.
"The Humane Society of the
United States is not a parent
organization," Hobgood said.
"Each is an independent
organization, governed by its
own bylaws and board of direc-
tors."


She added: "Some people
get confused. We do have to
explain this from time to time."
Nolan said she chose the
name Humane Society of
Inverness because she pro-
vides humane rescue and
adoption of animals.
She said it doesn't necessari-
ly help in fundraising because
when approached, many peo-
ple say they already have
donated to the Humane
Society. Nolan and her volun-
teers explain that all Humane
Societies are different
Still, even public officials
acknowledge that the public
has a perception of Humane


Society groups.
Citrus County Animal
Services has investigated sev-
eral complaints at the shelter.
One report, in June 2006, stated
that officers told Nolan that the
public expects a top quality
shelter.
"The conditions were not up
to the standard that we like,
but she said she is trying to
improve daily by installing con-
crete floors, housing and keep-
ing better records on all the
animals," the report stated.
"We explained that as a repre-
sentative of the Humane
Society, she is held to a higher
standard than most."

Santa-Maria plans to send a
copy of the harassment footage
to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service as part of his comments
on the proposed comprehensive
conservation plan for Crystal
River National Wildlife Refuge.
Public comments are due by
March 6.
He said not all dive boat oper-
ators behave badly. He said it
depends on individual captains.
He said some are much more
aggressive about getting in the
water and enforcing good behav-
ior around manatees. But he
said he has seen dive boats drop
off customers at the mouth of
Three Sisters Springs with no
supervision, leaving the mana-
tees unprotected in the water.
Although Santa-Maria lives in
Temperance, Mich., he said his
family is from Blue Springs, Fla.

charge was petit theft from a met-

At Blue Springs, he said, t
rules for manatee watching are
different than in Crystal River
People get out of the water when
manatees are present He said
they get the same thrill by watch-
ing them. ;a
In Crystal River, Santa-Maria
said he favors allowing peopleto
continue to swimming with man-
atees, but he advocates a "no
touch" rule. j
"I don't think the swimming
program should end," he said.
'There should be a way to do the
encounters that benefit the arW-
mal and the operators."
Santa-Maria said the diving
community is a tight-knit group
and they were outraged by what
they saw in the video. He said
they have begun to mobilize aid
speak out against bad operator.
'This is simple economics Of
*supply and demand," he said. "If
the demand is for responsible
tours, then those who do not act
responsibly will falter and thope
that do will succeed. My video
encourages the kind of choices
that create a demand for eqg-
friendly tours."

Dean's office
said have
allowed the
insurance
problem in
Florida to spi-
ral out of con-
trol.
The petition
said: "We prop-
erty owners in
Citrus County
respectfully


request that you acquaint your-
selves with the serious prob-
lem facing us with reference to
home insurance. With no rea-
son given, policy holders have
been dropped by their insur-
ance companies.
"In the process of seeking re-
insurance, we are faced with
unethical gouging and unrea-
sonable demands. As a result,
we are compelled to either suf-
fer unconscionable rate
increases or drop insurance
coverage on our home. We
strongly ask that the insurance"
industry and its lobbyists be
thoroughly financially investi-


gated and if necessary proper
steps be taken not only to rep-
rimand but to correct this
deplorable situation and give
us the relief we so desperately
need.
"We ask where have the
funds gone when we have had
many fruitful years and just a
few bad ones."
The petition was signed by
residents of Inverness, Citrus
Hills, Homosassa Springs,
Floral City, Crystal River,
Lecanto and the surrounding
area. Consuegra said she has
125 more signatures to add and
still has copies out around the
county.
"The people of Citrus County
and the citizens of Florida con-
tinue to be hurt by skyrocket-
ing insurance costs," said Dean
in a news release after pre-
senting the petition to the
insurance committee. He said
the petition will become part of
the official record of com-
plaints from citizens all over
the state.
"This petition is just another
example of the people's cry for
help, and I believe we need to
hold the insurance companies
accountable for their rates,
which continue to climb."
Dean said in the release. He
concluded, "I hope my fellow
Senators understand how
important this issue continues
to be and should be one of our
top priorities."
The spring session of the leg-
islature begins Tuesday, March
4.


DAVE SIGLER/Chronicle
The Humane Society of Inverness now uses Nolan's back yard as shelter for the animals the society
is trying to adopt. The adult dogs are housed in enclosed paved pens and the puppies are kept in a
separate building where they can access an enclosed area outside the building.

"I saw a need," Nolan said.
Not everyone is impressed

Citrus County Animal
Services has a file several
inches thick filled with com-
plaints, mainly about condi-
tions at the shelter on
Mohican Trail.
Others say Nolan misrepre-
sented the age and vaccina-
tion histories of dogs that
were adopted.
The com-
helter plaints, howev-
logs from er, resulted in

Ito breed Indeed ,
Rawls was
es for highly critical
ket. of Nolan and
her operation.
In an August
2005 letter to
Mary Redd, secretary/treas-
urer of the Humane Society
of Inverness, Rawls wrote:
"In my 30 years professional
welfare experience, I have
never known of anyone


involved in humane work to
advertise puppies for sale via
the Internet."
The organization respond-
ed with a letter to county offi-
cials, saying that Rawls was
purposely trying to discredit
the Humane Society of
Inverness by sending inflam-
matory e-mails to other res-
cue groups.
"As a direct result of these
e-mails and other correspon-
dence about our organiza-
tion, Ms. Rawls and her
cohorts have been successful
in ensuring that several of
our previous, regular, large
contributors have stopped
making contributions," a let-
ter signed by Nolan states.
Nolan invited Public Safety
Director Charles Poliseno to
the shelter in February 2007
for an inspection. Poliseno
reported he found no evi-
dence of animal neglect or
abuse.
Nolan noted that she res-
cues and adopts hundreds of
animals a year, yet she
receives only a few com-
plaints.
"You'll always have some
people who complain," she
said. "Most people are very
happy."

RIDE
Continued from Page 1A
plans to sue to sheriff's office,
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement and Citrus
County Commission for negli-
gence in his daughter's mur-
der.
The notice came out just
days before the annual bike
ride. It didn't sit well with some
participants.
One woman was pulled away
from the stage as Lunsford
spoke to the crowd. She yelled
that she had a question. The
woman never got a chance to
ask her question.
As she was led away by
deputies, Lunsford yelled to
the crowd, "Does anyone want
to talk about anything but chil-
dren?"
"No!" the crowd yelled back.
Deputies said the woman
was given a trespass warning
and ordered to leave the prop-
erty. She caught a ride and left
the scene.
Lunsford tried all day to
steer away from the lawsuit
He said he told a television
reporter earlier in the day that
if she asked one more question
about the lawsuit, he would ask
her to leave. He wanted to
focus on the purpose of the
ride to raise funds for the
child advocacy center.
But the issue of thelawsuit
kept bubbling to the surface.
Lawsuit no-shows
Biker Bob Hanson -from
Hudson said he thought the
ride was a good cause because
it raises money to protect chil-
dren, but Hanson said he
knows of about 15 to 20 bikers
from Daytona Beach who did-
n't make the ride when they
heard about the lawsuit He
said he knows about the no-
shows because his brothers
live there.
"The timing was off (on the
announcement of the lawsuit),"
he said. "It may have affected
the turnout"
Jim Redman of Port Richey,
a fellow biker, said he found
out about the lawsuit when he
read the morning newspaper.
"I said, 'why this today?'," he
said.
Redman said Lunsford has
done much good with his child
advocacy efforts. He said more
needs to be done. to protect


DAVE SIGLER/Chronicle
Mark Lunsford led several hundred bikers from New Port Rlchey to Crystal River for Jessie's Ride. The
ride was much smaller than last year's event. Bad weather was blamed by some for poor turnout; oth-
ers speculated it might have been because of the lawsuit filed by Lunsford against the Citrus County
Sheriff's Office, the FDLE and Citrus County.


children from predators and
sex offenders. He said the s.her-
iff's office had done all it could
to find Jessica and agreed with
Hanson that some bikers didn't
show because of the lawsuit.
Heavy rains pelted the start
of the bike ride in New Port
Richey. Lunsford said it rained
for hours and he blamed the
weather for the limiting the
turnout to about 300 riders.
Lunsford criticized
Lunsford, who led Saturday's
ride, said he has spent most of
his life in the biker community.
He said it was biker groups and
the Harley-Davidson dealer-
ships in Crystal River and
New Port Richey that created
Jessie's Ride to raise funds
that would feed search groups
looking for Jessica in 2005.
"The day they put that ride
together, they found her," he
said, his voice breaking.
Lunsford said he rode that day
to honor his daughter's memo-
ry.
In the wake of his daugh-
ter's murder, the Florida
Legislature passed the Jessica
Lunsford Act, which enhanced
tracking and registration
requirements and increased
penalties for sex offenders


and predators. Lunsford said.
34 states have adopted legisla-
tion similar to Jessie's Law.
But many in the biker com-
munity were put off by the law-
suit, according to Crystal
River Harley-Davidson
Manager Warren Hill, speak--
ing for, himself and not the
dealership.
Hill said many bikers felt
Lunsford was being unfair to
the sheriff by suing him after
he did everything he could to
find Jessie. Hill said last year
about 4,500 bikers participat-
ed in the ride. But he said the
dealership received a lot of
phone calls this week from
bikers who weren't happy
about the lawsuit
"A lot of them feel like he's
shot himself in the foot, and a
lot of them feel its about per-
sonal gain," Hill said.
Hill said he heard nothing
negative about the sheriff. He
said it speaks well of Dawsy
that he still spoke at the event
Biker .Gary Klepal of
Brooksville said he didn't
think it was right for Lunsford
to sue the sheriff's office.
"I'm sure law enforcement
did everything they could. It
seems he (Lunsford) has
turned everything to his


advantage," Klepal said. "I
don't think anyone should turn
around and profit from your
own daughter's death."
Biker PC. Russell of
Brooksville had even harsher
words for Lunsford. He ques-
tioned why Lunsford wasn't-
home the night his daughter
disappeared from her grand-
parents' home.
He said he also wants to
know how much of the money
collected for the Jessica Marie
Lunsford Foundation is going
to the foundation and how
much is going to pay for
Lunsford's personal expenses.
He said newspapers need to
do more investigating about
those issues.
Russell said he will need
more facts before he makes a
final judgment about
Lunsford and the lawsuit he
plans to file.
Despite the backlash about
the lawsuit, the tone on stage
was upbeat and focused
entirely on the need for an
advocacy center and more
funding to support enforce-
ment of child protection laws.
Sheriff wants
Jessie's Place
Dawsy and U.S. Rep. Ginny


Brown-Waite, R-Brookville,
spoke of the need for
Jessie's Place.
The sheriff said he current-
ly has four detectives and one
sergeant investigating crimes
committed
against abused Biker BC
children, but he
said they have to from Hui
interview and
photograph he thoi

cal atmosphere. ride wa
He said a num-
ber of govern- cause b

tions. ,He said but Han

"This center is

stop center and Beach v
all those govern- make
ment agencies make
will come here when th
to Jessie's Place;
it will be a com- about th
fortable place
for children,"
Dawsy said.
He said the estimated cost
of the center would be about
$1.8 million, but he said the
Citrus County School Board
has donated 15 acres for
Jessie's Place and Safety
Town, and Schenkel-Schultz,
an architectural firm, has
donated its services to design
the facilities.
SchenkelSchultz designed the
new $16 million county
Emergency Operation Center
under construction. He said
an engineering firm is donat-
ing its services and a con-
struction company is willing
to discount its services.
Dawsy stressed that Jessie's
Ride should continue in years
to come. He said the fundrais-
er is needed in the long term
to keep Jessie's Place operat-
ing after it is constructed.
"We're going to look to you
on a yearly basis," Dawsy said.
"There are recurring costs."
Lunsford effective

Brown-Waite declined com-
ment on the lawsuit, but pub-
licly commended Lunsford for
his effective lobbying efforts

the real-life drama

Driving north from Salt Lake

the Continental Divide, the

divides the watershed East
and West, the first major scenic
attractions were the grandiose
Grand Teton Mountains and

both -beautiful and

GUIDE
Continued from Page A2

Central to the Parkway is the Columbia Ice
Fields and its accompanying five glaciers,
including the famous Athabasca glacier, thou-
sands of years of compacted ice flowing imper-
ceptibly toward their terminal moraine. This
ice field is unique in the world in that the melt
water drains into three different oceans, the
Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic.
Observing the ice fields close up can be
achieved on foot if you don't mind flailing your
arms like a windmill while attempting to keep
your balance on the slippery ice. Watch for cre-
vasses deep cracks in the ice that can be a
hundred or more feet deep, enough to serve as
an icy grave for those who venture too close.
A safer and easier manner of traversing the
ice is in a snow coach with narration by a local
and knowledgeable guide. Snow coaches are
mammoth machines riding on huge tires, dwarf-
ing a standard tour bus, with panoramic win-
dows for easy viewing. This is also more of a
learning experience as you also have an oppor-
tunity to get off the snow coach to explore.
Where barren rock is visible, note its luster,
polished from eons of glacial action. Listen
carefully and you may hear the creeks and
groans of the glacier as it moves at a snail's
pace, all the while carving the valley deeper.
On the fringes of the glaciers, where there is a
bit of soil, look for the dainty and brilliant flow-
ers, rarely more than a few inches high. Further
from the ice where the soil is deeper and
enriched by glacial action, larger plants and
low-lying berry bushes may be found.
Rivers of gray slurry continually flow from
beneath the glaciers, carrying fine soil and
nutrients to the valleys below. In temperate
times, as in our lifetimes, the glaciers are in a
continual melt, otherwise the build-up of freez-
ing new snow would, in time, create another ice
age. Glaciers around the world are in a constant
state of building and receding at different rates
due to the instability of the worldwide climate.
How better to enjoy the wonders of the uni-
verse than standing on a gigantic and .powerful
moving mass of ice miles long and hundreds
of feet thick and at the same time, enjoy see-
ing the tiny beautiful flowers solely dependent
on their behemoth host

Special to the Chronicle
This is one of the many spectacular peaks above
the Ice Fields Highway In Alberta, Canada.
We humans are always seeking the next
"thrill," be it jumping from an airplane, jet ski-
ing, fishing for a trophy or watching a favorite
athlete. Likewise, traveling and enjoying the
experiences of foreign cultures, viewing antiq-
uities of past civilizations or simply enjoying the
marvels of nature, imbues one with a sense of
ownership of things experienced an appreci-
ation of events outside our ability to grasp the
essence of it all.
Wonders never cease, and in the words of
Jones, "Let nature ignite your vision of far away
places." Where in the world do you want to go?

Neil Sawyer is a 22-year Crystal River resident

tries two to three times a year in addition to

Say it



ain't so
Mark Lunsford, say it
ain't so.
After this communi-
ty came together that cold
February evening and started
that long search for Jessica,
things would never be the
same.
Things weren't the same for'
young Jessica, because she
was kidnapped and murdered
in an unspeakable way by John
Couey, a derelict sex offender.
But things have never been
the same for this whole com-
munity. And some could argue
that things have changed for-
ever in both Florida and the
nation.
But Mark Lunsford, say it
ain't so.
On those cold February
nights, hundreds of volunteers
joined law enforcement offi-
cials to search through the
woods and fields in Jessica's
neighborhood for clues to what
happened. The volunteers
came early each day and
stayed until long after sunset
The abduction of this
Homosassa Elementary
School student brought this
community together to fight
this evil outrage. Everyone
wanted to find her alive. '*`
Unfortunately, the search
I efforts failed. But intense
police work led the sheriff's
office to identify a suspect-ahd

OF GRAY


You say

Lightfoot, I

say Leadfoot
When trying to escape
the weighty world of
"hard news," there's
nothing like going to see aging
pop stars.
Take Gordon Leadfoot, for
example.
Lightfoot, you ask?
Not if you're an age-50-some-
thing fan standing behind the
Curtis M. Phillips Center at the
University of Florida late on a
Tuesday night
Let's get back to that in a
minute, though.
So far this year, my concert
buddy/coworker/honey-do-list-
maker (and wife) and I have
gone to three concerts at rela-
tively small venues. I'm far
from abandoning my wayward
rock concert ways, but there's
no comparing the pleasure of
attending a mild-mannered
show at a small- to mid-sized
auditorium to the mayhem of
crowded arena concerts.
My aging back appreciates
comfy chairs, my claustropho-
bia appreciates small crowds
and my nerves enjoy minimal
traffic and parking headaches
afforded at the smaller venues.
, I've learned to be less obnox-
ious since, for some reason,
many in these audiences are
full-flown adults. Less hooting
and hollering, less standing

needed to bring


stability to county


On Oct. 3, 2006, a Chronicle
headline stated: "It's offi-
cial: June Fisher is new
administrator."
On Feb. 20, 2008, a Chronicle
headline stated: "It's official:
Fisher is leaving."
About a month
before that on THE I1
Dec. 18, 2007 County adi
Boyd "Roger" vaca
Pulley was named
assistant county OUR 01
administrator. Now, Learn
with two months
under his belt, he's expert
the top dog in coun-
ty government and he's
applied for a position in DeSoto
County where he and Mrs.
Fisher once shared assistant
administrator status.
While Mrs. Fisher refused to
elaborate on the reasons for her
departure, it's safe to assume
she's not seeking greater chal-
lenges in her job as director of
community services in
Highlands County, where her
primary residence and husband
remained during her employ-
ment here.
Citrus County is now in a pre-
carious position and needs
someone to lead its government
staff and soon. Who that
should be is anyone's guess, but
the right person needs to come
equipped with an arsenal of
skills.
The best candidate needs to
take direction from commission-
ers yet steer clear of their indi-
vidual agendas. The best candi-
. date must understand the polar-


Legal aid CO
I have a question. Why is
it that I am a male -
I'm not able to get legal
aid, supposedly because
the other party, my spouse,
has already gone to the
legal aid department? I'm
frustrated. I just can't c
understand. I thought that 563
the legal aid office has 563
more than one lawyer, and
they're telling me my
spouse has already been there, so
they cannot help me. How is that
possible if legal aid is a public help?
Mosquito feast


I'm just kind of complaining
because our property taxes are sup-
posed to include the mosquito guy.
We're sitting out here tonight because
it's beautiful and we're getting eaten
alive. We haven't seen the mosquito
guy in at least six months. And the
excuse they use is, "Well, if it's less
than 50 degrees, then we're not
going out." And also I would like to
add, if I have to push 1 for English, I
should have somebody on the other
end who can speak English.
Pay for each other
This is in response to a caller who
is opposed to the Catastrophic Relief
Fund. Their argument was, "Why
should we pay for somebody else
when they go through a catastro-
phe?" Well, these storms in
Tennessee, Arkansas and Kentucky
are exactly the reason. Those people
who live in Kentucky and Tennessee
are going to pay for the people in
California who have earthquakes,
who are going to pay for the people
in North Dakota who have the snow-
storms, who will pay for the people
in Kansas that have tornadoes, who
will pay for the people in New York
who go through the snowstorms and


ized factions in the community
and the pressures those factions
place on county government.
The best candidate must be a
leader who can communicate
well, be involved in and con-
cerned about the
community, and live
SSUE: here full time.
ninistrator If commissioners
ncy. are to have signifi-
cant achievements
'INION: to point to in assess-
from ing their time in
from Ioffice, they need to
ence. make the hiring of a
quality leader their
primary focus. Then they need
to give that individual clear
direction and the latitude to
make things happen.
After the administrator has
had time to settle into the job,
commissioners owe it to that
person, themselves and the citi-
zens of Citrus County to honestly
evaluate the performance and
provide the input needed to
address areas of concern. Praise
is good and appropriate, but
there should always be room for
constructive criticism. A skilled
professional will welcome and
benefit from that input.
With Mrs. Fisher's departure,
the firing of her predecessor and
the termination of the former
assistant administrator, Citrus
County is thirsting for stability.
Striking the balance of hiring
the right person in as short a
time as possible is not an envi-
able task, but it's one task all five
commissioners must cooperate
on and make priority No. 1.

t heat waves, who will pay
for the Floridians who go
through hurricanes, who
will pay for the people in
Louisiana who go through
S floods, and the other
Mississippi states. There is
nobody who is immune to
catastrophe. We are
Americans living in a socie-
059 ty. Society supports each
0579 t other. We are all God's chil-
dren.
Enforce laws
In the Friday, Feb. 8, Sound Off col-
umn, "Off-road vehicles," I completely
agree with the individual who called
in the statistics on off-road vehicles
with regard to height vs. weight of
these vehicles. I completely endorse
the law enforcement of that article. It
should be reprinted. That was so well
spoken ... I also endorse more strin-
gent Citrus County enforcement of
the speed limit.
Red snapper
I see where the state has finally
stood up and has put some controls
on the ability of catching red snap-
per out in the gulf. Here's another
shining example of the charter cap-
tains and boat captains complain-
ing now because they've got limita-
tions on them ... Some day when
that species is near extinction,
everybody's going to turn around
and wonder what happened.
Bring in mermaids
I think mermaids should be put into
Homosassa Springs and into the
Crystal River by Three Sisters Springs,
just like they are at Weeki Wachee. The
same policy regarding manatees and
touch would be for the mermaids. It
would be interesting to see how long it
was before these gentle mermaids
were fed up with the hands-on policy
currently being used on the manatees.

Speaking for wetlands
Editor's note: The following letter is
part of a speech given Feb. 7 by Renee
McPheeters, chairwoman of the
Committee for the Protection of Nature
Coast Wetlands, before the Citrus
County Planning and Development
Review Board. It has been edited for
length.
The property South of Crystal River,
owned by RealtiCorp, is under discus-
sion this motiing for development,
Application #CPA-08-08, referred to as
Crystal River Commons.
This property is very uncommon as it
has vital wetland that filters water over a
major underground aquifer springshed.
With development on this property,
the rainwater will not filter into the
aquifer instead it will drain into the
Gulf, be evaporated or will be contami-
nated by vehicle effluents, minerals,
oils, fluorocarbons, toxins, fertilizer,
pesticides, herbicides and excess phos-
phorous that will go into the soil with
nothing to stop it
There is no clay barrier to prevent
pollutants from going into our drinking
water; in fact, a Citrus County official
told me that, if this property is devel-
oped, it could endanger the Crystal
River Wellfield, and that more sink-
holes could appear because of lack of
water in the aquifer
Lack of spring water pressure would
not be able to prevent salt water intru-
sion.
When wetland has been developed,
about 60 percent of rainwater has been
evaporated and, in this case, the rest of
the contaminated water would go into
the aquifer and the St Martin's
Preserve, and further pollute the water
of Kings Bay and Crystal River on
which the economy of Crystal River
and Citrus County depend.
A local geologist, Paul Pilney, stated
that this wetland area is sinkhole
prone. We do not need more sinkholes
such as the one that opened up not
long ago in the middle of U.S. 19 South.

property has cost the citizens of Citrus
County and the city of Crystal River
thousands of dollars in litigation over
an invalid annexation that could have
been avoided if the city of Crystal
River had allowed a referendum vote

Drop DROP
For several years, the state of
Florida and local governments within
the state have bemoaned the loss of tax
revenues from economic and property
valuation declines. Governments con-
sistently point to reduction of services
as a result of reduced tax revenues.
Services such as law enforcement, pub-
lic safety and social services are often


Editor =

discussed. Recreation and other qualiq
ty-of-life services seem easy targets. ..?
The state tends to push many of its 'a!-
service requirements down to localbr',
governments to reduce state expendi-I"
tures. And the taxpayers press govern-
ments to reduce costs without reducing
services. Perhaps there's a way to
accomplish some of both.
The suggestion is to drop DROP, the
state's Deferred Retirement Option 1
Plan. For more information see sectif
121.091, Florida Statutes. 'I
DROP allows state and local goveinP
ment employees who are eligible for'"
retirement under the Florida
Retirement System to defer retirement
up to five years and during that time,,
they can earn their normal salary as
full-time employee and earn their kr
retirement salary (typically up to 50
percent of their highest five years'
salary) in a retirement savings account
to be paid as a lump sum upon retire-;,
ment. This typically amounts to hun-,:,
dreds of thousands of dollars. s,,.,
For example, an employee earninp
$60,000 per year may have an average .
final compensation of $50,000 for \
retirement purposes and if they wo"ik,,
for 30 years, are entitled to $25,000.' ,,
annual retirement If the same employ-
ee elects to enter DROP, they will eNoA.
their normal salary, $60,000 per year,:-,
plus an additional $25,000 per year.T
While DROP was originally intendiedl
to allow governments to retain key staff
or staff holding critical positions or, .,,
special knowledge or skills, it would, .
allow governments to recruit or train.',
replacement staff while continuing --
services. But the state opted to allow ,,
all employees to be eligible for DROP
The DROP employee will earn
$60,000 for five years, a total of $300QQQ
plus $125,000 deferred retirement ft.
the five years, a total of $425,000. A new
employee may earn $30,000 per yeat; a
total of $150,000 for the same five years,
a savings of $275,000. Gt.

Togetherness is great, but be careful not to get too close


I enjoy my wife and I like
being close to her: This
isn't shocking news for any
of you. I say it often. Be that is
it may, my sweetheart and I
recently discovered it's possi-
ble for us to be too close.
On a recent Sunday night, we
both went to church, but we did
so separately We each had our
own agenda prior to time for
the evening Bible study and
had driven there on our own,
she in her 1996 red, garage-
kept, babied Thunderbird and
I in my truck
. After the church service, we


walked out together,

These are all things I ordi-.

are at the same loca-

Back on point: I failed and I

even noticed my lapse in atten-
tiveness, but before the events
of the evening were over, it
would cost me dearly.
I went straight to my truck,
got in and headed home. It's
less than a mile from the
church to our house and I knew
my sweetheart was behind me.
The problem was I didn't know
just how close she was.
As I pulled into the driveway,
I realized I'd entered on the
wrong side. We have a circular
drive, my car is usually parked
close to the doorsteps and my


truck is parked on the side
away from the garage. The way
I had pulled would have
blocked Cheryl's access to the
garage. Recognizing my error, I
looked in the rearview mirror,
didn't see her car, pulled the
gear shift lever to reverse,
began to back up and
CRUNCH!
It's amazing how much
money folks want to fix a bro-

touch up paint on a bumper
And, not surprisingly, the insur-
ance company was able to opt
out. The policy contains a pro-


vision written in verbose legal-
ize which when interpreted
says if you are dumb enough to
run into yourself, the insur-
ance company doesn't have to
pay. Imagine that!
In any event, Cheryl forgave
me for crunching her car, but
I'll have to pay for the repairs.
Next time, I'll do first things
first I'll put my wife first and
then she won't be behind me!

- Hot Corner: MARK LUNSFORD


Editor's note: We have been
inundated with calls respond-
ing to Mark Lunsford's plans to
sue the sheriffs office, county
,and state law enforcement We
,will only be able to publish a
portion of those calls.
Where was he?
Well, I guess Lunsford has
hit rock bottom. Here he was,
running around looking like he
.was some kind of hero when
his daughter died a terrible
death. Where was he when she
was kidnapped and why didn't
he go barging in next door and
find her? It's funny, he's turned
around now and he's going to,
what, sue the taxpayers? ... His
daughter's dead and he's going
to sit here and try to get rich
off of her death ...
True colors
... What happened to Mark
- Lunsford and what happened
Ito Jessica are unspeakable,
unspeakable. My heart goes
out for Mark, but it troubles
me that he is now showing his
true colors. To sue the sheriff's
office is to put money in his
own pocket because of what
happened to his blessed
daughter. And again, it's a
shame what happened to
Jessica, but my evaluation of
that circumstances all along
.has been that if Mark-had -
been where he should have
been as a father, it's highly,
highly, highly likely that.some: .
thing of that sort would not
have happened. If he had been
truly watching over his own,
she wouldn't be where she is
Today.
t All about money
It was very disappointing to
read that Mark Lunsford and
his family are planning a law-
suit in the death of little
Jessica after conducting him-
self so very well. It appears
that the Lunsford family, like so
many others in this country,
boil it down to money.
Seeing dollar signs
Sounds like contributions to
Jessica's fund are down and
money is needed ... Someone
should sue the father. Maybe
Jessica still would be alive if he
had. not been out ... Maybe this
will put a stop to Sheriff, Dawsy
playing kissyy face" with
(Lunsford). The Chronicle needs
to take a stand.
Total disgrace
I just wanted to say that I
think it's disgraceful that the-
Lunsfords are trying to get
money off of the tragedy of
their daughter. All of Citrus
County was looking for that lit-


tie girl. All of us were out there
*in the woods looking for that
little girl. I think it's disgraceful
that they're trying to make.
sromethihgb out of a horrible sit-
uation and I think that they
should be stopped for that.
Should I sue?
I see that Mark Lunsford is
going to sue Citrus County
Sheriff's (Office), which is the
Citrus County taxpayers, for
negligence in the investigation.
Does that mean I can sue Mark
Lunsford for being a negligent
father?
We already gave
I think it's a mighty coinci-
dence that Mark Lunsford,
after three years after his
daughter passed away, is
going to sue the county for
negligence. You know, if he's
going to do that, he should
have done that a long time
ago. The only thing it is with
him is that he's all out of the
money that everybody's donat-
ed to him ... .and now he
wants more from everybody ..
else and make our taxes go up
even higher than they are now.
I'd like to know what he did
with all the (money) people
gave to him when his daughter
passed away. Yeah, it's a sad
thing what happened to the lit-
tie girlalhd everything, but I
think the police did what they
did and they did their job and
.everything. So I don't under-
stand where he's even coming
from, other than the fact that
he's money hungry and
greedy.
Get to the truth
I see in today's Chronicle that
the Lunsford family is going to
sue the sheriff's (office) ...
Anyone can go on the Internet
and see where the sexual pred-
ators live in Citrus County. If
the sheriff's (office) did their
job properly, they should have
entered that home that very
day that that child was miss-
ing. I've said many, many times
that the sheriff was the one
that mishandled that crime -
and that they should be held
totally accountable. I'm glad
that the Lunsford people are
suing. It will not bring their
child back, but maybe we'll get
the truth.
Editor's note: In violation of the
law, John Couey was not residing
at the address registered with
authorities.
Start with the basics
I see where Mark Lunsford
is suing the sheriff's (office)
here for the poor job they did
on finding his daughter, and I
agree with that. Here we've


got a sheriff's (office) where
Dawsy wants to take over all
of Citrus County. He wants to
run the whole show. He acts
like this is Los Angeles County
where he's got to have helicop-
ters. Yet police dogs that were
on the search for her, they
couldn't even find her and she
was just basically across the
street. We've got people that
were lost 100 yards from their
house not too long ago. This
gentleman, they looked for
him and it took them forever
to find him. So instead of
spending money on all this
fancy equipment and trying to
look like the LAPD, why don't
we take the basics and train
and teach the people that you
currently have how to do their
job properly without having all
the bells, lights and whistles?
Once we get that good, then
you can buy these toys. I think
the basics need to be
addressed first, which this, I
feel, has not been done in the
past.
A lot of nerve
This is to Mark Lunsford:
You've got nerve. This county
turned themselves upside-down
to help you in your troubled
times. Where were you ... when
your daughter was getting kid-
napped?_... You've got.nerve ...
Unbelievable
I was reading in the paper
this morning where Mark
Lunsford and his wife are
going to sue the sheriff's
(office) in Citrus County. You
know, that's really unbelievable
with the way the sheriff and all
of Citrus County and all the
people supported Mark
Lunsford during the death of
his daughter and all the times
that he went to the rallies and
all the things that have been
done. You know, this was trag-
ic. Yes, it was tragic that this
happened, but it was one of
those things that happened.
The sheriff's (office) is not to
blame for the death of his
daughter, and it's just totally,
totally asinine to think that
after all the people stood
behind him the way that they
did, that he would turn around
and sue the sheriff's (office).
And as far as the mother -
she was never in the girl's life
anyway. Sounds like they're
looking for money. Too bad.
Time to dismount
It was a horrible thing what
happened to Jessica, but if her
father had been home taking
care of her ... he may.still -
have his little girl. He's been
riding a free horse long
enough.

Let us drift back into time to

Name in vain
Having just read Gerry

only want to remind you that
God has said, "Thou shalt not

Negotiating with enemy

Sound Off about President
Truman not negotiating with

and higher gas prices while
they record astronomical prof-
its at the expense of the
American citizens? In closing, I
would not like to think our
president is in the pockets of
big oil companies, or is he?
Costs rise daily -
Here we go again. Gas prices
(are) sky high. They say it's
because Iran, or whoever, may
cut production. Then they say
there was an explosion in a
refinery in Texas or wherever.
I'm not the sharpest knife in the
drawer, but it seems to me that
when these big oil companies
go to Saudi Arabia or wherever


to buy oil, I'm sure they sign a
contract with them. And if they
do, why would oil prices go up
every day? As for the refinery
explosion, wouldn't you think
that a billion-dollar corporation
would have insurance? Methinks
there is something not so totally
honest going on.
Start drilling
With oil prices at over $100
a barrel and gas at $3.25 a
gallon at the pump, it is time
to drill for oil in Alaska.
Considering the present cost to
the consumers, Congress
would not have enough nerve
to stop it this close to election.

High permit fees
If you are a cost-conscious
and prudent spender, take
heed.


Before you undertake a
home or yard project, check to
learn what the permit fee is,
for you are apt to ask yourself
the question, "Why am I being
clobbered by the wiles of a
mercenary county."
Case in point: In replacing
our leach field, the fee was a
whopping $300. That was for
an inspector to come out to
check the trench with the like-
lihood of approving it I would
venture to say that I can get a
cardiac specialist to make a
house call for that amount
Gotchya! is the county game
because you can't shop around
for permit fees. Squeeze
everybody every which way to
gouge, thump and zap.
So you have to pay it, but
you sure can complain about it
- in their faces. Maybe some-
thing will be done.

4C SUNoAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2008 COMMENTARY C (



What's our energy policy? Just ask Forrest Gump


S L tupid is as stupid
does." So said
Forrest Gump in the
famed 1994 movie. He had it
about-right. Based on what we
are doing in regards to energy,
we must be stupid.
We are spending about $400
billion annually.to import, oil.
Most of that money goes to
Canada and Mexico. But a good
40 percent goes to the Middle
East, where we fund jihadists,
and to Venezuela's dictator,
Chavez. Enriched by high oil
prices, Russia is back to creat-
ing problems for us.
Meanwhile, we have at least
40 billion barrels of crude and
250 trillion cubic feet of natural
gas off our coasts, in the Artic
National Wildlife Reservation
(ANWR) and on federal lands.
An estimated 1.2 trillion bar-
rels of oil lie in shale deposits


across the Midwest
and West. We have
the largest known
deposits of clean- 4
burning coal in the
world enough to
supply our energy
needs for more than
200 years. We have
enough uranium to
supply nuclear Dr. V
power for millennia. Di
Given the threats OTF
to our economy and VOI
national security, -
should war or ter-
rorists disrupt the oil supply
from the Mideast, and not
wanting to finance our ene-
mies, an intelligent person
would think that we would be
working furiously to become
energy independent. Nope.
Too stupid! Too "green."
Congress has put more than

50 percent of the oil
anid 27 percent of

off limits. Less than
20 percent of the

Shell can be devel-
oped. Gov. Charlie
Criist and our sena-
tors fight explo-
illiam ration in the. gulf,
on even many miles off
IER shore and even for
CES natural gas which

crat-controlled Con-gress hates
"big oil" and is trying to
remove the tax breaks
Congress gave them to encour-
age exploration. They want to
add a special tax on their prof-
its to encourage alternate ener-
gy sources. Really stupid!
President Clinton made a


"national monument" of a vast
area of Utah desert to satisfy
his "green" supporters.
That took nearly all of our
known deposits of low-sulfur,
clean-burning coal out of play
Gov Crist just issued an edict
prohibiting construction of
even high-tech clean coal-fired
power plants in Florida.. ..
(Along with his killing the
home insurance industry in
Florida and support for com-
batting manmade global warm-
ing, his actions indicate he has
both feet firmly-anchored in-a ...
cloud!)
So, instead of tapping the
vast energy resources we have,
we build costly windmills and
solar panels which scientists
predict can provide less than
10 percent of our energy needs
at full capacity. We subsidize
ethanol as a replacement for


gasoline though it is a poor sub-
stitute and may consume more
energy than gas it replaces. Yet,
we know that if we used every
kernel of grain produced on
every piece of American farm
land, we could offset 5 percent
of our gasoline usage, at best.
Diverting corn to ethanol
even now is causing food short-
ages around the world, con-
suming more fresh water and
adding nitrate pollutants to our
rivers.
Congress and the president
demand that our financially
distressed automobile manu-
facturers retool to make lighter
cars which average more miles
per gallon. Our wise leaders do
this despite government stud-
ies showing people who drive
fuel-efficient cars tend to drive
more miles. Worse still, they
know that driving these lighter


cars will result in the deaths of
an extra 2,000 to 3,000 citizens
annually But, hey! What are a
few thousand deaths compared
to saving the caribou in ANWR,
the desert in Utah and tourism
in Florida?
Stupid surely is as stupid
does. Where is Forrest Gump
when we need him?

CHARLES MIKO
Special to the Chronicle

This past Tuesday, perform-
ing before a full house of
cheering miners and a handful
of protesting homeowners, the
male majority of our county
commission trashed the only
meaningful mining regulation
ever adopted in this county.
That regulation required
that new mines or expansions
of existing mines may not
approach closer than 3,000 feet
to homes.
They also relegated to the
trash bin any semblance of pro-
tection for what little remains
of our much vaunted "Nature
Coast" and for the billions of
gallons of precious water that
lies in the shallow, aquifer
under it.
- The three handed it all, on a
platter, to the foreign mining
companies that are well
advanced in their exploitation
of the coastal environment and
the water resources of this
county.
-All-three had signed onto the
unanimous board decision of
last August. All had assured the
public that in the event that a
new. and meaningful mining
ordinance was not adopted
within six months, the buffer
requirement would be returned
to the Land Development Code.
All-three glibly reneged on that
assurance.
It comes as no surprise that
Commissioners Dennis Damato
and John Thrumston took this
path. Damato, to his credit, has
openly and persistently
expressed his priorities: the
welfare of business and indus-
try first, the public welfare sec-
ond. Thrumston, as usual, pro-
vided a second Damato vote.
Commissioner Gary Bartell,
who once again provided the
swing and deciding vote, has
become an enigma.
After years of establishing
himself as a champion of the

through countless songs and
jumping up and down.
Good Lord, am I getting old,
too?
SFor-those-who may-be on the
verge of adulthood, like me,
there's a lot of great entertain-
ment in'the region; including
entertainers you knew in your.
youth.
In early January, we saw
Poco at the Largo Cultural
Center in Pinellas County.
-Even though their popularity
isn't close to the level of the
Rolling Stones. or Bob Dylan,
they were among my favorites
in my teens and early 20s.
The lineup of the band has
changed a lot from when they
were formed "from the ashes of
Buffalo Springfield" but one of


public welfare and of the envi-
ronment, he appears to have
experienced a transformation.
He opened the board discus-
sion with a string of leading
questions to the assistant coun-
ty attorney. Then he ended by
slipping out from under his
pledge of last August with a
weak explanation starting
with, "If I had known...".
He followed with the vote
that presented the decision to
the miners.
All is not lost. There remains
the issue of developing and
adopting a new mining ordi-
nance. Commissioners Vicki
Phillips and Joyce Valentino
will fight valiantly to make it
meaningful. They consistently
demonstrate their intent to do
so.
However, a competent odds-
maker would give them a less
than 1 in 10 chance that they
will succeed, or for that matter
even make it applicable to
existing mines.
But hope springs eternal.
Even 1 in 10 is better than
-nothing.
Viewed from the long per-
spective, it seems clear that
with Bartell's turnaround the
brief springtime we have
enjoyed in Citrus County gov-
ernment is over. We have
skipped the summer and fall
and have returned to the long
winter of the 1980s when our
county commission didn't even
bother to acknowledge that
such a thing as public welfare
existed.

legislation that focused our
nation's absurd lack of over-
sight of sexual predators.
Speeches were made. Laws
were passed. People from all
walks of life came together and
said that what happened to
Jessica should never happen
to another child in this nation.
But Mark Lunsford, say it
ain't so.
Citrus County was where
this horrible crime took place.
And Citrus County is the place
where the call for reform
began. Sheriff Jeff Dawsy, Rep.
Charlie Dean, Sen. Nancy

roles in making those reforms

In a paragraph, the concert
was great. Rusty said he was 22
when he started with Poco.and
that that was 40 years ago. After
the show, they were happy to
meet with fans, sign auto-
graphs, etc. When he signed a
Poco ball cap I'd purchased, I

I'm calling in reference to
an item in a recent Sound

van that goes to Gainesville
twice a week and it's a free
ride and he will speak to a
woman named Virginia and
she can arrange a ride. He
would have to go to a certain
pickup point, but it is a free
ride. You don't have to pay ...
If he can schedule his
appointment on a Monday or
a Friday, it will be a free ride.
Losing your ride
In regard to the person
who says it would be harsh

then they need to lose their

This horrible crime touched
the hearts of so many.
Money was donated,
fundraisers were held, and
safety programs were devel-
oped. Parents talked with chil-
dren. The community
embraced the Lunsford family
and tried to provide comfort.
Citizens demanded that sex-
ual predators be incarcerated
for longer prison terms and
kept away from children. The
outrage at this crime was
turned into action.
Jessica Lunsford's death


We'd seen him with his
buddy Paul Simon five years
ago in the St. Pete Times
Forum. The show was great,
but we seemed to be sitting
about 47 miles from the stage.
I was very skeptical about
how an aging Artie would do
without Paul, but he was out-
standing. My Tallahassee-
based stepdaughter gave us the
tickets as a Christmas present
and we had nice cushy chairs
..in the orchestra section.
With his afro hairstyle now a
different shade than it was in
his youth, he joked about
straightening his hairpiece

about singing on street corners'

made it big in the mid-1960s.

Mark Lunsford, Jessica's
father, has become an unlikely
advocate. As Jessica's dad, he
has been able to gain access to
lawmakers throughout the

help make change happen. He
stood shoulder to shoulder
with our sheriff, our legislators
and national leaders to fight
for the cause.
But Mark Lunsford, please
say it ain't so.
We learned this past week

Citrus County can have it all


; :'. FACIONE
Special to the Chronicle

Superb retail design is an
;)It. Not that Florida needs
another strip mall, but much of'
the zoning for retail and com-
ueqrcial still allows for the old
triJp-mall model of develop-
ment. To develop something
timeless, something that meets
the needs of the community
and the businesses that occupy
the space, we have to do better
Planning commissions now
calJ on developers to create
NQown centers" where people
canp mingle, shop and do busi-
ness all in one location. Not
only does this reduce travel
distance within a county -
reducing energy consumption
and improving air quality it
creates a friendly and comfort-
able atmosphere that everyone
can enjoy
The location for these town
centers is very important. New
development must meet a com-
munity need. Businesses need
to,-know that customers can
easily and quickly get to them.
In any location, it's important
to avoid environmental
impacts.
Businesses want to support a
great quality of life includ-
ing environmental protection.
Residents have reason to jeal-
ously guard environmental
resources.
Can a county really expect to
have environmental protection
:and economic growth? We
:think, yes.
There is such a thing as good,
:smart growth. At Primerica,
smart growth is our core phi-
Ilosophy. We design our retail
,communities so that they blend
in with their surroundings, so


that they fit into the communi-
ty. After all, the small business-
es that occupy our spaces are a
part of the community.
We take special care to
ensure that all of our develop-
ments reflect the quality and
character of the surrounding
community, respect the stan-
dards and values of the com-
munity, and fit in to the com-
prehensive plan. We'd be
remiss if we didn't
Citrus County regulations
call for the minimization of
environmental impact. We
take this very seriously. In
meetings with local groups, we
were told that environmental
preservation is critical. We lis-
tened.
In fact, our project, Crystal
River Commons, is designed to
ensure that there is no net loss
of wetland area. Located on
U.S. 19 between Venable and
Ozello Trail, the design
includes enhancements that
will improve some aspects of
the environment and will defi-
nitely improve the safety of
transportation in the area.
But, in order to bring large
retailers into the Crystal River
community, some of the larger
retail stores require visibility
from U.S. 19. Unfortunately,
they won't join your communi-
ty or economic center if they
can't be seen from a highly
traveled location. To give these
retailers visibility, we must
impact a small portion of wet-
land area.
Among our other enhance-
ments is an Ozello Trail exten-
sion. This extension, which
runs from Ozello back to
Venable, creates a new hurri-
cane evacuation route. The
route will alleviate traffic at


the U.S. 19 and Venable inter-
section, one of the worst in the
county! This road will eventu-
ally become a county road and
complies with the U.S. 19
Access Management
Ordinance. To create this
much-needed evacuation
route, we had to impact a small
portion of wetland area.
Our main goal is to minimize
wetland impact and maximize
economic benefits. If we could
avoid impacting any wetlands,
we would. There are 87 acres
of wetlands on the entire 270-
acre property. Through careful
design, we've decreased the
impact to 9.64 acres. Here's
what we've planned: While we
will impact 9.64 acres of wet-
land, we'll recreate 9.64 acres
elsewhere on the same site. We
have always been good stew-
ards of the environment; we
will own and manage the prop-
erty for many years. We can
assure you that the wetlands on
site, natural and created, will
be monitored to ensure their
health and environmental ben-
efit to the community. These
wetlands are not presently
being monitored.
Utilizing the portions of this
property that make sense for
both the environment and the
economy is the ultimate goal.
Here's the breakdown:
160 acres Rezone area
that includes 45.5 acres of wet-
lands.
46.84 acres -- Including
building and parking lots; this
is all Crystal River Commons
will utilize.
9.64 acres Wetland
impact for the entire parcel.
9.64 acres Wetland area


we will re-create on the back
half of the property.
. 109 acres Open space
dedicated to the wetlands,
ponds, nature trails and land-
scaping.
20 acres Wetland area
fronting U.S. 19 we are request-
ing a rezoning from General
Commercial to Conservation
Land.
200 acres In addition to
no net loss of wetland area, we
will be contributing at least 200
acres to the Crystal River State
Buffer Preserve.
Crystal River Commons cre-
ates a unique balance of envi-
ronmental respect and eco-
nomic enhancement. Once
fully developed, Crystal River
Commons will create more
than 1,000 jobs. It will generate
an estimated $3 million in
impact fees and $75 million in
taxable revenue. It's going to
give the citizens of Crystal
River new and unique shop-
ping and dining experiences in
a town center and will provide
a much higher standard for
projects to come.
We are striving to make
Crystal River Commons a proj-
ect the entire community can
support Our belief is that good
growth, smart growth, blends
economic vitality with a
respect for the environment
Believe it or not, sometimes
you can have it all!
For detailed information,
visit www.CrystalRiver
Commons.com; we're looking
for your support

Accident victim
I'm calling about your
Friday morning paper's
article, "Four-car accident
sends drivers to hospi-
tals." On the front
page, the caption SO
says, "Inverness
resident Joe
Lemming
inspects the
wreckage of his
(Ford Bronco
II)..." And then on A
the page that has
the article, it says CALE
that he was flown 5 3
by (Aeromed) to 563
Tampa (General)
Hospital. That seems a lit-
tle odd that a man that's
standing in a picture then
has to be flown. Just won-
dering what the story was.
Editor's note: Please read
the story again and the photo
caption. According to the
story, Franklin E. Lemming
was flown to Tampa General
Hospital. Joe Lemming, a
relative, is shown in the
photo as identified in the
caption, not Franklin
Lemming.
Two near misses
I'd like to know where
the sheriff's (office) is at. I
walk up and down Gospel
Island Road an awful lot
and twice I about got hit
by a car. I had to jump
down off the road to keep
from getting hit. They
think that was a motor
speedway out there and
it's not. The sheriff should
be out there more often
and check these guys for
speeders. I can tell when a
car's going by, to know
how fast it's going. I think


the sheriff's (office) ought
to be out here more.
Headlight height
In regards to the "Off-
road vehicles"
Sound Off: I feel
that if someone
chooses to drive a
big truck, they
know the risk and
S also carry insur-
ance on the vehi-
cle they choose to
drive. It should
not be singled out
on vehicles of
0579 that nature due to
large (vehicles) of
all kinds. In the
U.S. states, you choose to
drive a small car, just like
some like to drive big
trucks. I own five large
trucks myself. Maybe
somebody should do more
research because in the
state of Florida, the only
limiting law on vehicles
that are big and tall of
nature, the headlights are
the only one they limit to a
height from the ground.
The state of Florida has no
bumper height. Please do
more research before you
crack on big vehicles that
are legal by the Florida
state laws, because you
don't feel you can control
one.
Safety priorities
With all the science we
pay for to learn about
space, I wonder if this is
more important than to
stop these roadside
bombs that are killing so
many of our good young
people. What is more
important?

CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE



Even non-filers can get tax rebate


JIM HUNTER
jhunter@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle

Taxpayers who qualify for
the economic stimulus rebate
this year will not have to do
anything other than file their
2007 individual income tax
return to receive their pay-
ment later this spring or sum-
mer. Checks start going out in
May
Those who file returns elec-
tronically can elect to get
refunds sent to their bank
accounts. Taxpayers who have
already filed with direct
deposit opted won't need to do
anything else to receive the
stimulus payment.


GETTING YOUR REBATE
8 .The federal $170 billion economic stimulus plan is designed to give tax rebates to 117 mil-
lion low- and middle-income Americans, senior citizens, and disabled veterans, allowing:
* $300 rebatesfor tax filers with an income of at least $3,000 even though they normally might
not have to file a return.
m Up to $600 to singles making less than $75,000.
8 Up to $1,200 to couples making less than $150,000.
I $300 rebates per child....


How the rebate works
The IRS will use the 2007 tax
return to determine eligibility
and calculate the basic amount
of the payment based on their
income. For most taxpayers,
payments will range from $300
to $600 for individuals and $600
to $1,200 for joint filers, plus


Aport couMld


$300 for each qualifying child.
Payments could be less,
depending on tax liability and
adjusted gross income. All chil-
dren claimed must have valid
Social Security numbers and
meet the criteria of qualifying
child under the IRS code.
A married couple with two
children whose adjusted gross


anke


income is $35,000 and whose
federal income tax liability
before child tax credit is $1,070
would get a joint rebate of
$1,070. The qualifying child
credit is $600. Their total
rebate would be $1,670.
A married couple with two
children and an adjusted gross
income of $80,000, whose fed-


eral income tax liability before
child tax credit exceeds $1,200
would get the joint total rebate
of $1,200. The qualifying child
credit is $600, and so their
grand total rebate would be
$1,800.
A phase-out reduction of
payments begins at $75,000 for
single filers and $150,000 for
joint filers.
For individuals earning
more than $75,000, 5 percent of
the amount exceeding this
threshold will be deducted
from the payment. For joint fil-
ing, the maximum income is
$150,000.
For a married couple with
two children whose adjusted

gross income is $160,000, whose
federal income tax liability
before child tax credit exceeds
$1,200, the individual (joint)
rebate is $1,200. The qualifying
child credit is $600. The phase-
out reduction is $500, and so
the total rebate is $1,300.

Low-income Americans
also eligible
Even those who, because of
their low income level, don't
normally file a return can be
eligible for a rebate, though
they will have to file a tax
return to get the rebate. Those
people who have little or no tax
liability may qualify for a mini-
mum payment of $300 ($600 if
filing a joint return) if their tax
return reflects $3,000 or more
in qualifying income.
Similarly, Social Security
recipients, certain railroad
retirees, and those who receive
the veterans' benefits must file
a 2007 return even if they don't
normally to notify the IRS of
their qualifying income. Those
people with no filing require-
ment normally who turn in a
tax return to qualify for the eco-
nomic stimulus payment will
not get a tax bill from the IRS.
They will not owe money
because of the stimulus pay-
ment, which isn't taxable.
For those people, there are
two places that will help them
file a return for free: Tax-Aide,
a non-for-profit group run by
local AARP members, and
Liberty Tax Service, a fran-
chise, for-profit tax preparer
that has volunteered to file
returns for those low income
citizens at no charge so they
can get their refunds.
Those residents will not have
to complete applications or file
any extra forms or call the IRS

payment will be automatic

IRS will determine eligibility,
figure the amount and issue the
payment during spring and
summer of 2008.
Tax-Aide is the nation's
largest, volunteer-run, free tax
assistance/preparation and
transmittal service. It is
designed for low- and middle-
income taxpayers with special
attention to those age 60 and
older. There are nine different
sites in the county (see above
list).
Liberty Tax Service has
offices in Inverness at 1470 U.S.
41 N. and in Crystal River at
7903 W Gulf to Lake Highway
Liberty Tax Service CEO
John Hewitt said in a news
release, "Liberty Tax Service
wants to help people who do
not normally have to file a,
return get the rebate they are
entitled to receive. Many peo-
ple who receive Social Security
and veterans' benefits are like-
ly to overlook this opportunity
to get the stimulus payment.
Last year, more than 30 million
taxpayers missed the tele-
phone excise tax credit that
was due to them. We don't want
that to occur with the tax stimu-
lus package."
For those who might utilize
the Tax-Aide AARP service,
persons interested do not have
to be an AARP member nor be
over 60, though the group tar-
gets residents 60 and older.
Though it also does regular tax
returns for free, Tax-Aide does
not do business, business-relat-
ed or agricultural returns and
has guidelines from the IRS on
specifically what kinds of
returns it can prepare. The tax
counselors file the return elec-
tronically
Taxpayers who file exten-
sions will have a delay in
receiving rebates, and checks
will not be issued after Dec. 31.

expensing equipment and
items purchased in 2008. The
section 179 expensing increas-
es to $250,000 for business

by a provision to increase max-
imum mortgage amounts that

Your Own Bag


After making numerous
decisions about what foods
to purchase, consumers
are faced with one last decision
prior to checking out at
the grocery store,
Paper or Plastic? The I
"paper or plastic" i
conundrum vexes even i
the most environmen- /-
tally conscious shopper
as they determine what
tote to cart their gro-
ceries home in.
When it comes to Joan Bi
plastic grocery bags, FLOE
they are lightweight, m
sturdy and easy to FRIEI
carry because of built LIV
in handles.
They also have the added
advantage of preventing foods
from leaking onto your car should
an accident occur while en route
from the store to your home. They
are cheaper than paper and they
have the potential for reuse in the
home. Sounds good so far .... but


I


there is more. While these plastic
totes are handy, experts indicate
that between 500 billion and a
trillion plastic bags are consumed
worldwide each year.
Of those, millions end
up in the litter stream
outside of landfills.
While plastic grocery
J. bags are some of the
most reused items
around the house, for
book and lunch bags as
kids head off to school,
adshaw as trash can liners, and
to pickup Fido's drop-
IDA- pings off the lawn, we
NDLY need to keep in mind,
like candy wrappers,
I NG chewing gum, cigarette
butts, and thousands of
other pieces of junk, millions of
the plastic bags end up as litter
Once in the environment, it takes
months to hundreds of years for
plastic bags to break down.

Do dowsing rods really work? Reader weighs in


Dear John: The
phone line was
busy every time I
tried to call in today in
regards to divining rods. I
am the child of a scientist
and the father of two doc-
tors and not
one inclined to
believe super-
stitions. When I
was a young
chemistry stu-
dent in my first
house in
Gainesville, I
had a neighbor
who used a Y-
shaped branch John S
to locate an SIKOF
underground
stream in my AT
next door
neighbor's yard so he
could drill a shallow well.
I expressed my skepti-
cism, and he handed me
the branch and told me
how to hold it so there was
a little tension in the Y I
then walked across the
yard and to my amazement
the Y suddenly pointed
down rather forcefully.


Many years and a
degree in horticulture, a
career in the nursery
business and a stint in
graduate school later, I
found myself as the
grounds superintendent
at Santa Fe
Community
College. One of
the vp. nblem :; I
had to d !al
with waz many
V lost irrigation
pipes, heads,
*- valves, etc.,
and the college
had no as-
ikorski builts to show
SKI'S where buried
pipes, gas
TIC lines, electric
lines, etc. were
placed. Lo and behold, the
college mechanic was my
former neighbor. He had
refined his dowsing tech-
nique to use L-shaped
lengths of welding rod,
just as several of your
callers described. We
used a set of these rods to

Please see ATTIC/Page 25E


V -


Special to the Chronicle
Though some prefer the traditional forked stick, many dowsing enthusiasts use L-shaped metal rods such as
these. INSET: A diagram showing how the rods allegedly work.

BAG
Continued from Page 6E

brown paper grocery bags
have been around for a long
time. To provide the strength
necessary for groceries, the
bags must be made from high
quality paper. Consequently,
recycled content is limited
when the final product will be
grocery bags. Although they
are made from trees, a renew-
able resource, the production
of trees and manufacture of
paper bags can pollute the air
and water with chemicals.
Paper bags can be recycled -
often into corrugated card-
board. Recycled paper may
create less pollution and
require less energy than paper
produced from virgin materi-
als. Paper bags are biodegrad-
able, but that process is not
facilitated in landfills where
there is a lack of air.
What is the best solution? To
reduce the waste generated
from paper or plastic bags when
grocery shopping, select one of
the following alternatives.
Reuse paper or plastic bags
when shopping for groceries.
Reusable sturdy cardboard
boxes or strong cloth bags will
also help reduce waste. For
both types of bags, the environ-
mentalists' mantra is the same
- reuse and recycle. The very
best choice you can make is to
try cloth or canvas, and BYOB
- bring your own bags.

Build it, and birds will come


EFFIE SMITH/Special to the Chronicle
Baby bluebirds inside a nesting box have a little extra protection from the elements and predators such as domestic cats.

Want to attract avian tenants into your yard?Just give them a place to feel comfortable


JoY GALLON
For the Chronicle
nothing quite beats the thrill of
watching a pair of birds build a
nest and raise their family in
your own yard. If birds are passing
through and perhaps dining chez vous
but not making plans to move in, there
are steps you can take to help them
change their little minds.
Audrey Durr, coordinator of the
Florida Yards and Neighborhoods
Program (University of Florida, Citrus
County Extension), has some good tips


to make your yard attractive to birds
looking to settle down.
"Encouraging birds to nest in a yard,
is most successful," Durr explains;
"when a desirable habitat is created by
incorporating multiple Factors- nesting
sites, vertical layers of plants and other
cover, food sources, a source of water,
safety from predators, and expanding,
the scale of habitat When birds are
attracted to a yard for food or water,'
they are also more likely to nest in that
area rather than in an area that does
not provide those benefits."
Please see *' /Page 15E


TIPS ON BUILDING A BETTER BIRDHOUSE
* Use 3/4-inch-thick wood, untreated, unfinished and weather-resistant (such
as cypress or redwood).
g Cut horizontal grooves on the inside of the front to help the young climb out.
S.The entrance hole should be the proper size and height from the floor tor the
species you want to attract. :
lt Make tiny drainage holes in the floor.
W Allow a small gap between the roof and sides to provide ventilation.
BA sloping roof slightly larger than the nest box will help keep it dry.
. A hinged roof or side makes it easier to clean the nest box when the occu-
pants move on.

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY.24; 2008 15E


EFFIE SMITH/Special to the Chronicle
Habitat loss and pesticide use has severely impacted the bluebird population, but you can help them
recover by building boxes for them to nest in.


PREDATOR-PROOF YOUR BIRDHOUSE
a Do not add a perch.
K Place a metal guard (a large washer) around the entrance
hole to prevent squirrels from enlarging it.
a Attach a squirrel baffle just below the nest box if it is pole-
mounted to deter squirrels, cats and raccoons.
* A strip of galvanized metal 3 feet wide wrapped around the
trunk will help protect tree-mounted nest boxes.
* A simple nest box can be built from a length of 3/4-inch-
thick lumber. A 4-foot length of 1-by-6-inch lumber can make
a nest box with a 4-by-4-inch floor. Similarly, a 6-by-6-inch
nest box can be made from a 1-by-8-inch board, an 8-by-8-
inch nest box can be cut from a 1-by-10-inch board, and a
10-by-lO-inch nest box can be cut from a 1-by-12-inch board.
Taller-boxes require longer boards.
The size of the entrance hole is the most important dimen-
sion. The entrance hole should also be the proper height
from the floor so that the young will not fall out and it will be
more difficult for predators to get to the eggs or the babies.
Dimensions and instructions for building simple nest boxes
can be found online at www.nsis.org/bird/bird-nestbox.html.


BIRDS
Continued from Page 14E

These factors that Durr
mentions are not extravagant.
Good nesting sites can be
found in shrubs and trees of
differing heights, simple nest-
ing boxes (or houses), and
dead trees.
"Dead trees are a great nest-


ing site," says Durr. "Keep the
trunk and shear off the
branches and bluebirds will
nest there. Woodpeckers make
multiple nests to attract as
many mates as possible -
more holes in the trees than
they have mates to attract -
and bluebirds nest in the cavi-
ties."
The water source can be a
pond or even a small birdbath,
and food can come from feed-


ers or fruiting/flowering trees
and shrubs. Durr also suggests
convincing neighbors to incor-
porate wildlife-friendly areas
into their landscape.
"One of the most important
things," says Durr, "is to
reduce pesticide usage. I
always tell people that insects
are the building blocks of a
healthy yard. Another thing -
very important is keeping
domestic animals inside, espe-


cially the cats."
Mike and Effie Smith of
Inverness are knowledgeable
about birds, doing everything.
Durr suggests to attract their
feathered friends. Their small
yard has all the trappings of
an avian resort flowing
water, feeders and flowering
shrubs, vertical layering of
plants (native Florida vari-
eties), and various bird boxes
that will tempt even the most


discriminating of fowl.
"Owls are probably the easi-
est to get in a box," says Smith,
"and the screech owl is proba-
bly the easiest owl. You make
a box with an 8-by-10 bottom, a
hole 3 inches high by 4 inches
wide and 20 inches above the
bottom, and a top you can
open. Put it on a pole with
aluminum around it to keep

out squirrels. You should be
able to stand on top of a 6-foot
ladder and look into the top of
the box."
The Smiths have joined the
effort to bring the Eastern blue-
bird back You didn't know it
was gone? Habitat destruction
(Bluebirds like to
nest in cavities in ON TH
dead trees) and pes-
ticide use caused U Birdho
their numbers to plans(
drop dangerously found
low in the mid- www.fr
1990s. The Smiths house
have installed 80
bluebird boxes near retention
ponds in and around Citrus
County; 30 of these are on State
Road 44. Smith builds the boxes
and puts them up, and Mrs.
Smith takes pictures as they
monitor the boxes even shots
of the birds inside.
"Bluebird houses should be a
hundred yards apart," says
Smith, "in the open and not on
trees. Put it on a pole at a height
you can stand on the ground
and look into the hole. And
don't use pesticides in the lawn,
because the bluebirds eat the
bugs. If you use pesticides you
needn't put the houses up." He
says that bluebirds lay three to
four clutches of eggs a year, and
their homes should be up now.


According to the Smiths,
bluebird boxes are attractive
nesting sites for several
species of birds. Chickadees
are smaller than bluebirds and
because they nest earlier, they
use the bluebird boxes and
move out inr time for the
intended occupants. If there
are house sparrows in the
area, they will use the boxes,
and "wrens will nest any place
there is a hole they can climb
into."
E WEB Mike says that if a
bluebird box is
use placed 12 to 15 feet
an be off the ground (but

which return every
year to the same nesting spot
Stead Lott, Master Gardener
with the Citrus County Exten-
sion Service, is working to help
the bluebird, too. "Bluebirds are
useful," says Lott. "I like to say
they are the gardener's friend.
In Florida, 90 to 95 percent of
their diet is insects."
He likes bluebirds so much
that in the last four years he
has built 9,108 bluebird houses
out of scrap lumber.
"All this is thanks to Mike
Smith," Lott said. "He taught
me how."

CiRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE



Hardy grasses can




bring delicate beauty


JANE WEBER/For the Chronicle


White-eyed grass is an equally Florida-friendly species of blue-eyed grass.


JANE WEBER/For the Chronicle
Blue-eyed grass can cope with harsh environments
and come up blooming.


There is a stretch of U.S. 19 south of
Homosassa where the center grassy
median is bright blue in late February
and March. Un-irrigated roadsides and
medians with poor quality soil atop com-
pacted lime rock bases that drain poorly are
one of the most difficult areas to plant
Increased air pollution, buffeting winds
from passing traffic,
ground vibration and ,
noise further stress
plants. Yet blue-eyed '
grass thrives there to
bloom every spring. T-
One of some 90
Sysyrinchium species -
native to South and
North America,
Florida's blue-eyed i /
grass is an iris with Jane Weber
thin, flat, evergreen, -
grass-like leaves 4 to 6. -
inches long. This fully -.
frost-hardy iris multi-
plies rapidly from spreading root rhizomes
radiating from the mother plant's center and
by prolific self-seeding. Individual leaves
last up to two years then die off naturally, but
are already replaced by dozens of new
leaves and plantlets.
The natural growing conditions are moist
yet well-drained, acidic to alkaline soils rich
in humus. I have seen pretty blue-eyed grass
in pockets of debris among the rocks lining

find many, many long-lost pieces
of the irrigation system, as well
as buried electric lines and gas
lines before we dug to lay new
lines. Our experience was that
the precision of locating was
affected by depth of the line and
probably the soil type. We would
walk back and forth across the
area marking with flags each
time the rods crossed. Generally
we could get a width of area
delineated where the pipes
probably lay Sometimes we
would get a precise line that was
off by a few feet to one side.
Many of my workers were skep-
tical, insisting that the user was
subconsciously moving the rods,
but we even blindfolded people

the Cross Florida Barge Canal
south of Inglis a harsh envi-
ronment indeed.
This versatile little plant
adapts to gardens with full sun
to quite deep shade. Blooming
is better in a sunny location. In
my garden I always amend the
sandy soil with free, organic
vegetable compost before
planting. This humus retains


and turned them around and
had them walk until they
crossed the buried pipe, arid the
rods would cross when they
crossed the pipe. I have never
found anyone for whom this
would not work I do not believe
there are any special powers
involved, but rather that it is the
interaction of some naturally
occurring forces within the body
and some kind of electro-mag-
netic field generated by the
buried objects. It would make a
great science project for some
bright kid to try to find a way to
measure the effect
Our mechanic, who is a real
genius, tried putting the wires
into some kind of holder and
hooking up instruments, but
found that the rods only moved
when in contact with human
hands. This would suggest that
some kind of force field within

moisture, decays to provide
natural nutrients to the plants
instead of having to use fertil-
izer, and is full of necessary
soil organisms. Earthworms
love it
Flowers, about half an inch
in diameter, erupt in masses on
flattened stalks above the car-
pet of foliage. They have six
petals colored deep purple to
bright blue with yellow pollen
and stamens in the center.
The massed effect reminds
me of fields of bluebells from
my childhood in England and


My experience
over the years is
that the kind of
metal is not too
important

the body works with the metal
rods. My experience over the
years is that the kind of metal is
not too important. I have used
coat hangers and rolls of heavy
wire bent into the appropriate
L shape. I think I have used alu-
minum but would not swear to
that I heard one of your callers
say that aluminum did not work
and that could be true.
I would assert that even you,
John, could use a set of L
shaped wires successfully If

the blue Lewis' flax along the
Yellowstone and Missouri
Rivers in Montana. Neither
exotic will grow here with our
torrid, hot and humid sum-
mers. Blue-eyed grass natural-
ly beautifies the temperate
Nature Coast we live in.
Our local Sisyrinchium
species is often locally listed as
S. angustifolia. Globally it has a
newer name, S. graminoides.
The white-flowering species is
S. alba. Under normal condi-
tions species do not cross-
breed, so the blue-flowered


you have an in-ground irriga-
tion system or know approxi-
mately where the water line
runs into your house and walk
back and forth across the area
holding the short end to the
bent wire loosely like a pair of
pistols pointing straight ahead,
you will experience the wires
crossing. Try going back and
forth across the same area
from various directions. Our
experience was that walking
perpendicular to the buried
line gives the most precise
"reading." When I left the col-
lege, the most precise .set of as-
builts for underground pipes,
wires, etc. resided in the
grounds department thanks in
part to the use of L-shaped
divining rods. B.H., Internet
Dear B.H: We sure had a lot of
fun on the radio show talking
about memories of dowsing or

plants produce blue-flowered
seedlings and whites, white.
Both are readily available from
local nurseries.
Use blue-eyed grass as a bor-
der along a path, a specimen
clump in a perennial bed or as
plugs in a lawn. It stays green
even on frosty winter morn-
ings.
Butterflies flit around the
flowers of this native plant but
do not lay eggs on it. Birds and
other wildlife eat the seeds and
lizards hide in the foliage to
ambush pollinating insects.
