When 16-year-old Ava is told of a judge's decision to keep her from contacting her foster care family ever again, she crumbles. Group treatment coordinator Sharon Harker
provides comfort during the first highly emotional minutes the teen is aware of the court order. Ava considered her foster family her true family.

By society's standards, they are
lost They have criminal records
and painful pasts. Their parents
are drug users. Foster homes don't want
them.
Yet...
They reflect on flaws and have a keen,
sense that making a mistake doesn't
mean giving up.
They are courageous.
They crave hugs.


The 65 girls at the E-Nini-Hassee
girls' camp in Floral City have a life that
starkly contrasts today's lifestyles filled
with cell phones, e-mail and "American
Idol."
Each girl is brought to the camp to
learn skills needed to mold a new life
for themselves. Using counseling and
behavior management the idea is pre-
pare the girls for a successful life.
Some have been forgotten by the ones
who birthed them, others made deci-
sions that could have killed them.

protect
In the end, does it matter?
A 16-year-old girl was brought to Eckerd Youth
Alternatives' E-Nini-Hassee for the second time in
her life.
The outdoor wilderness camp is a place where
teenage girls a second chance at life. Through ther-
apy, behavioral management, discipline and com-
passion, E-Nini workers help the troubled teens
develop into strong women.
The task can seem hopeless for children who
have been neglected, abused, abandoned and for-

get three meals and an after-

camp experience.


They do one
thing together:
Sing. The E-
Nini girls sing
before and
after each
meal. The pre-
meal song
expresses
thanks for the
meal.
Chiefs dole
out the food
for their group


and the plates are passed down
until everyone is served. This
bunch is grateful for what they
receive.
"A lot of us didn't get normal
meals at home like this," Ava
says.
Other girls agree. Life wasn't
normal at all. ...., . ,,, t.
Nichole, 13, came to the
camp because she had
nowhere else to go. When she
was about 7, her mother, who
was a drug addict, became
blind. Nichole took care of her
younger siblings and cousins.
Her mother died a year later
and she lived with her father.
Nichole says her stepmom
abused her, so she went to her
aunt and uncle. That didn't
work out either
An older sister who could
have taken care of Nichole
after that was in jail, so she
stayed in a group home for
girls. She got into a scrape with
another girl and ended up at E-
Nini.
It's taken her a long time to
accept that she is not responsi-
ble for her family members.
"It just hit me knowing
that I'm here to work on
myself," Nichole says. "I have
to do this for me."
Like Nichole, 17-year-old
Janel comes from a family with
a history of drug abuse. Her
parents are users and have
been in and out of jail and drug
treatment programs. For a time
they were homeless.


Eventually, Janel ended up
in the DCF system. She admits
to selling drugs in the past and
running away. Her dad is in a
drug treatment program, her
older brother has been in and
out of jail and her mom resort-
ed to prostitution.
"She wasted a lot of my life
and her life with drugs," Janel
says of her mother.
Both Nichole and Janel say
they don't trust people. Being
in an environment with drugs
and addictions made that type
of behavior seem OK. They
were hardened to protect
themselves. It was about sur-
vival.
Despite the harsh conditions
of living outside in a buggy and
muggy Florida, both girls
appreciate the experience.
"I don't resent being here,"'
Janel says. "I'm learning a lot
This is stuff a lot of people
already know, but it's not easy
for us. But I just try"
, Bouncer.Bryce
The chiefs, like Bryce
Downey, keep close watch on
the girls. She knows they bring
emotional baggage to E-Nini.
"You get them out of that
environment and the real per-
son is there," Downey says.
Downey, 26, has a calm
demeanor and a bachelor's
degree in psychology.
While she's smaller in size
than most of the campers she
leads, Downey has a command
and control of the group. She is
patient and understanding, but
will make the girls stay in a
huddle until a behavior prob-
lem or personal conflict is
resolved.
It's in the huddles that the
girls let out their frustrations
and resolve issues.
"Chief, I need to express..." is
how many of them begin.
Sometimes the Cliff
Dwellers huddle because one
girl feels disrespected by the
group. Other times, a girl mis-
behaves.
Harsh reality
By mid-afternoon, the girls
work on team-building skills
through a series of games and


group problem-solving activi-
ties.
Ava is bubbly and carefree.
A week ago, she ran from
group treatment coordinator
Sharon Harker after a court
hearing. Now, she talks about
how she loves everything about
camp the girls, the routines,
the food, the fun. Her emotions
go from one extreme to anoth-
er. Like her peers, Ava's past is
steeped in instability.
She never knew her father
and her mother had trouble
with drugs. Ava was in foster
care by age 2 and then lived
with her mother from about
age 7 to 10 before returning to
the foster care system. The
most permanent placement
she's ever been in was with a
foster care family that she
stayed with for two years.
She considers these foster
care parents, who she calls
"Mom" and "Dad," her real
family.
The harsh reality is the fos-
ter parents sent Ava to camp
because they didn't want her
any more. Ava knows this, but
believes she will rejoin them
anyway.
Harker, who joins the group
during a huddle after lunch,
brings bitter news to Ava.
The girls sit on the grass in-a
circle. Harker, the treatment
coordinator, sits next to Ava.
A judge, Harker tells Ava,
says she cannot see her
younger brother And Ava can
no longer have contact with the
foster parents.
Ava's happy mood crumbles.
She falls back, pulling her
knees to her chest, sobbing.
"I hate the judge! I hate the
camp!" Ava shouts. The other
campers bow their heads.
The sobs subside and she
falls into Harker's arms.
Ava hugs Harker. Harker
hugs back.
(One girl later says that they
all have come to understand
that kind of pain; the pain of
feeling completely and utterly
alone the craving for a hug to
make it a little easier to take.)
Eventually, the chiefs decid-
ed the day must continue, but
Ava may hang back and watch
the team-building activities if
she wants. She accepts the
offer, but later joins in.
Bearer of bad news
Harker, 38, basically serves
as the gatekeeper to communi-
cations outside of camp. She
coordinates with caseworkers,
parents and foster parents and
arranges phone calls, visits
home and trips to court.
She spent most her life as a
public school teacher working
with special-needs students.
As a teacher, people told her
that the job must be fulfilling,
rewarding.
But it wasn't what she was
looking for
In the two years that she's
been at E-Nini, Harker says
she feels like she is making
more of a difference than ever
before. She sees girls rapidly
change at camp, from the
moment they step off the pave-
ment and into the worn dirt
pathways.
The girls come to camp with
addictions and attitudes. They
know how it feels to uWe
cocaine, marijuana and Xanax.
They've relied on themselves
and don't believe they need
anyone. Most bring memories
of abuse and neglect Some ate

because of acting up.
She gets angry when people
don't listen to her It's disrespect-
ful and frustrating to her.
Latrice, 17, also has trouble
getting through the rest of the
day. She's at camp for battery.
Quiet and polite most of the
day, her mood drastically
changes during a game of tag
when she stops playing and
stands still as the girls whip
around her She refuses to par-
ticipate in any other games,
which leads to more group hud-
dles.
She doesn't want to talk to any-
one. She doesn't want to listen.


The girls try to help, but
Latrice shuts down. All she will
say is that she misses her 18-
month-old son and wants time to
be left alone.
This is a problem and the
other girls know it If one refuses
to participate in the team-build-
ing exercise, they must stop and
huddle to talk about what's going
on. If that doesn't work, it's a
timeout for everyone. They must
return "down trail" to the camp-
site until Latrice is ready to coop-
erate.
That means no games, no fun-
Emotions begin to spiral for
everyone. One girl sits down,
refusing to move. Latrice threat-
ens to fight
Jordan gets so upset she begins
scratching her arms and face.


That gets everyone's attention.
Lee, Giovannia and Ava begin
talking to her about how she has
said she wouldn't hurt herself
any more. They tell her to think
of something happy and quit
focusing on the negative.
It takes a while, but the talking
works. Jordan calms down and
says she will follow the group.
Latrice changes her mind and
decides to participate.
"We all have to learn to work
together more often to get
through problems," Ava says.
Several hours later, Latrice
apologizes to the girls for dis-
rupting everyone, and letting
her emotions control her
actions.
In the four months she's been
at camp, Latrice feels like


things are changing, and she
wants someone to write the
story of her succeeding some-
day
"My anger has changed a lot,"
Latrice says.
At first, coming into camp,
she admits having an attitude
problem. She resents being
away from her son, who is living
with his father and grandmoth-
er. She misses him and it hurts
badly.
"It gets hard sometimes being
away," she tells the girls.
"But I realized, if my son is
really important I'll get to him,"
Latrice says.
Tomorrow's goal is to keep
trying to control her emotions.
Reflecting for future
Sitting in the dark of the Cliff
Dwellers camp, the girls hud-
dle around a lantern to review
the day.
Ava was proud of herself for
not letting her bad news effect
the entire day.
"I still cannot believe I han-
dled myself so well," she says.
They compliment each other
for being encouraging and sup-
portive. They recognize there's
still work to be done.
While only corral fences sur-
round E-Nini, the chiefs are
careful about escape. After the
huddle, the girls turn in their
shoes so they don't run off into
the night
Other employees also keep an
eye on the camp while the chief
sleeps with the group.
The nights are usually quiet,
aside from the critters and crea-
tures that live in the woods with
the girls. Night is a time the girls
look forward to.
It's a time for reflection, rest
and is always followed by a new
day, a fresh start

week and died surrounded by
family members at Coral
Gables Hospital, spokesman
Nelson Albareda said.
Cachao left communist

came to the
United States
in the early
1960s. He con-
tinued to per-
form into his
late 80s,
including a
performance Israel
after the death Lopez
of trombonist Generoso
Jimenez in September 2007.
Cachao was born in Havana
in 1918 to a family of musi-
cians. A classically trained
bassist, he began performing
with the Havana symphony
orchestra as a teenager,
working under the baton of
visiting guest conductors like
Herbert von Karajan, Igor
Stravinsky and Heitor Villa-
Lobos during his nearly 30-
year career with the sympho-
ny.
He also wrote hundreds of
songs in Cuba for bands and
orchestras, many based on
the classic Cuban music style
known as son.
He and his late brother,
multi-instrumentalist Orestes
Lopez, are known for the cre-
ation in the late 1930s of the
mambo, which emerged from
their improvisational work
with the danzon, an elegant
musical style that lends itself
to slow dancing.
"The origins of 'mambo'
happened in 1937," Cachao
said in a 2004 interview with
The San Francisco
Chronicle. "My brother and I
were trying to add something
new to our music and came
up with a section that we
called danzon mambo. It
made an impact and stirred
up people. At that time our
music needed that type of
enrichment."
The mambo was embraced
early on and Cuban com-
posers and jazz musicians
have tweaked it over the
years. It also influenced the
development of salsa music.

Homosassa man crashes into Bright House offices


DAVE SIGLER/Chronicle
Deputies assess the scene of a single-vehicle crash Saturday afternoon in Lecanto. Edward Swiger, a 56-year-old Homosassa
resident, crashed into the Bright House Networks building. He was driving north on County Road 491 (South Lecanto
Highway) when he lost control of his vehicle, traveled across all lanes of traffic near the intersection of C.R. 491 and West
Educational Path, and careened across Bright House Networks' lawn. His car continued up an embankment and into the
building's window, then rolled backward into the position seen above, Citrus County Sheriff's Office deputies said. Witnesses
at the scene said Swiger became unconscious at the wheel for an unknown reason, which caused him to veer off the road;
deputies were unable to confirm their statements. Paramedics airlifted Swiger to Tampa General Hospital. No Bright House
employees were injured.

'Freestyle Cruising' means dinner is at


whatever o'clock


( L I freestyle Cruising" -
just an advertising
slogan or is it
truly a break from traditional
cruising?
"Miami to Barcelona,
freestyle," was the siren's song!
How could anyone with wan-
derlust in their soul ignore
such a calling?
"Freestyle," conjures up dif-
ferent images depending upon
one's anticipation of what lies
ahead in their escape from
everyday life, as the ship slips
quietly out of Miami harbor.
Would all of life's dreams be
fulfilled during the next 13
days and nights of splendor as
we were beamed to Barcelona?


Freestyle simply
means one can eat
when and where
they please. No des-
ignated mealtime -
no assigned restau-
rant or table. There
is a choice of seven
seated restaurants
and three buffets,
representing differ-
ent themes and cul-
tural tastes. There is
a charge for wine
and mixed drinks at


Neil Sawyer
SPONTANEOUS
TOUR GUIDE


all times throughout the ship.
Tips are added to each tab for
the passenger's "convenience."
Don't look for the midnight
buffet. But you can claim a


table at the 24-hour
Blue Lagoon and
chose from a wide
selection, with full
service. We often
ate very late, as we
enjoyed the view of
a piano lounge on
the lower level and
never experienced
a wait or a crowd.
There are also six
"not-so-free" din-
ner option restau-
rants that claim to


be a cut above the other choic-
es. These offer various special-
ty menus such as sushi-sashi-
mi, Mongolian hot pot, steaks
and French bistro with an


added "cover charge" of $10 to
$20 each. The service and
ambiance are essentially the
same as those without the
added cost the difference
being the ethnicity of the menu
- and we did not feel that the
added cost was worth the price,
considering the wide choice of
styles and tastes available else-
where.
Norwegian Cruise Lines pio-
neered the freestyle theme and
have nurtured it to culture sta-
tus. Other cruise lines are fol-
lowing suit. Six hundred staff
work in the food and beverage
arena. Full and congenial serv-
ice is never more than a few
steps away. One never has to


ask, "what time is dinner," as it
is always promptly at whatever
o'clock
The Norwegian Cruise Lines
Jade is not the traditional family
style cruise ship that frequents
Florida ports. Less than 2 per-
cent of the passengers ranged in
age from stroller to teenage.
Guess who's bored? Not the par-
ents! There are activities for
youths but not to compare
with a Disney-style cruise.
Please see GUIDE/Page 16A
NEIL SAWYER/Special to the Chronicle
A Japanese chef aboard the
Jade demonstrates artistic
showmanship while preparing
dinner "freestyle."

comed home.

with a welcome home basket.
This was: not an ordinary
basket, but a basket full of
Super Bowl presents that were
donated by Citrus County mer-
chants, veterans organizations
and the Citrus County commu-
nity and included items of
Rutledge's favorite team, the
Tampa Bay Buccaneers, even
though they weren't playing in
this year's Super Bowl.
Rutledge moved to Citrus
County in 1985 from St.
Petersburg and is also a gradu-
ate of Crystal River High
School, class of 2001. He joined

NCEs tipping policy is stated
in its printed material: Ten dol-
lars per day, per person, is
added to your tab tips for the
crew to ease the burden of
deciding at the end of the
cruise who to tip and how
much.
The overall convenience and
choices, together with a high
level of service, plus nonstop
entertainment and activities,
makes for a pleasant cruise
experience. But keep in mind
that "freestyle" has nothing to
do with the pricing of services,
which you will discover at
checkout time, and everything
to do with eating and enjoying
the many activities. It's a good
way to go.

Post 155 seeks members


Special to the Chronicle
Men and women who
responded to the "Uncle Sam
Wants You!" recruiting appeal
of the U.S. Armed Forces are
now the objects of "The
American Legion Wants You"
plea especially veterans of
the 1990-91 Gulf War and the
current war in Iraq.
In fact, only 10 percent of the
estimated 1,100 members of
the Blanton-Thompson
American Legion Post 155 are
veterans of the most recent
major U.S. military expedi-
tions abroad, according to
Commander Jim Woodman.


Woodman said all military
personnel on active duty are
being sought for membership,
as well as those who've left the
service. He said Blanton-
Thompson American Legion
Post 155 not only provides the
camaraderie veterans were
accustomed to during their
active duty, but the post needs
veterans to assist in several
programs involving wounded
and disabled vets, American-
ism, children and youth pro-
grams and, in particular, a new
program the post is lobbying
for as the Citrus County
founder for getting government
contracts for area disabled vet-


erans and other veterans.
Most veterans don't realize
that on August 9, 1921, the U.S.
Veterans Bureau, forerunner
of the Veterans Administration,
was created as a result of the
efforts of the American Legion.
Today, the Legion continues to
lobby for adequate funding of
the Department of Veterans
Affairs and has a panel of attor-
neys to fight for each veteran's
rights. For more information
about the Legion and to join,
call American Legion Post 155
Membership Chairman John
Kaiserian at 746-1959 or Wood-

Masterpiece Theater


Heavy-hitting
lineup present for
annual Ted Wiliams
induction ceremony
JOHN COSCIA
jcoscia@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
A picture's worth a thousand
words, and sometimes it's even worth
a whole lot more. The latter was most
certainly the case this past Tuesday
night as the Ted Williams Museum
hosted the 15th annual induction cer-
emony of the Ted Williams Hitters
Hall of Fame at Tropicana Field, the
hQme of the Tampa Bay Rays.
The dinner included a who's who
of easily recognizable baseball
greats, including Hall of Famers
Wade Boggs, Reggie Jackson and
Rich "Goose" Gossage.
They were also joined by several
other distinguished guests, includ-
ing award winners Andre Dawson,
Roberto Alomar, Gossage, Hideki
Okajima, Jonathan Papelbon, Carlos
Pena, and Jenny Steinbrenner-
Swindal, who was there represent-
ing her father George Steinbrenner,
who received the Lifetime
Achievement Award from the muse-
um.
On this night it was all of them and
their collective presence that made
this an occasion those in attendance
won't soon forget By night's end,
however, it was Brian Olsen, who sat
in the midst of these baseball giants
in relative obscurity, who turned the
ceremony into Masterpiece Theater
Midway through the event, Olsen,
an accomplished artist known for
using only his hands and no brush-
es, turned a blank canvas into a
spectacular painting of the
%Chairman of the Board, Frank
Sinatra. The painting was then auc-
tioned off and earned the museum
$7,800 for charity.
.That, however, would not be the
showstopper.
The real highlight of the night
would come later in the evening
when Olsen once again took to the
canvas and created a masterpiece
Please see WILL,.M-/Page 2B

thing he painted). It was like
looking in the mirror," Claudia
would later relate. "I'd know
that nose anywhere. I knew
right away it was Daddy."
And by the time everyone
else had caught on, oohs and
ahhs could be heard rustling
throughout the room. When
Olsen finished, with one final
dynamic splash to the canvas,
everyone stood in unison as he
stepped aside and revealed the
most distinguished guest of all
... the museum's namesake -
Ted Williams.
As with the Sinatra painting,
a live auction was held imme-
diately after the completion of
the masterpiece. And this one
really drew serious attention
with the most appropriate per-
son of all, Ted's daughter
Claudia, finally capturing the
ownership rights with a win-
ning bid of $14,000.
Afterwards, Claudia was
quick to point out that the pur-
chase of the painting which
she has already turned over to
the museum's safekeeping so
that visitors may witness the
spectacle when they tour their
way through the hallowed hall-
ways was only accomplished
thanks to the generous support
of Bill Becknell and Ralph
Abel, who assisted in the pur-
chase and made the gift to
Claudia and the museum a
reality.
While the paintings were
certainly the icing on the cake
of a memorable night, the meat
and potatoes of the program
belonged to some heavy hitters
in their own right
Both Boggs and Jackson
made it clear in their speeches
that they both consider it a
"travesty" and "grave injus-
tice" that Andre Dawson is not
yet in the National Baseball


JOHN COSCIA/Chronicle
Jenny Steinbrenner-Swindal, daughter of Yankees owner George
Steinbrenner, accepted the Lfetime Achievement Award in his honor.


Hall of Fame and Museum.
And they were not alone. The
esteemed club's newest mem-
ber, Gossage, who will himself,
be enshrined in Cooperstown
on July 27 of this year, himself
made mention of Dawson dur-
ing his speech. "I'll see you in
the Hall soon, my friend," said
Gossage with an air of confi-
dence.
Gossage was probably also
the most vocal in his support
of the museum and as he
walked the halls could be
heard on several occasions
remarking, "This is just unbe-
lievable. What a phenomenal
place this is. I'll definitely be
back."
And then he saw his special
spot on the wall and just said,
"Wow!"
That pretty much summed
up the entire night
Mr. October himself,
Jackson, bestowed with the
honor of introducing
Steinbrenner's daughter
addressed those gathered
with a stirring introduction of
the night's final award recipi-
ent
"I feel fortunate tonight that
I get a chance to introduce as I
would say the regal part of the
Yankees. Our beautiful, what I
would call, our Lady of the
Yankees, he said. "Lady's and
Gentlemen I give you friend
and wonderful person Miss
Jenny Steinbrenner-Swindal."
As Steinbrenner-Swindal


took the stage you could see in
her emotions the magnitude of
the honor that her father had
just been bestowed and it was
eloquently reflected in her
words that followed.
"On behalf of my father
George Steinbrenner and the
rest of the Steinbrenner family,
I can't thank you enough for
this lovely honor. The Ted
Williams Museum and Hitters
Hall of Fame was established to
preserve the rich tradition and
heritage of our beloved nation-
al pastime, baseball,"
Steinbrenner-Swindal said.
"And I know of no one who
cherishes baseball and our
country more than my father.
This is truly an honor and we
thank you so very much. I know
that he's just so very sad that he
can't be here tonight"
And with that another magnif-
icent ceremony ended on a high
note sending all of those in
attendance home with memo-
ries that will last a lifetime.
The price of the Dinner on the
Field induction ceremony... $99..
The cost of a signed baseball
by some of Major League
Baseball's best hitters of all time
...$75
The cost of purchasing a
unique painting of "Ole Blue
Eyes"... $7,800.
Purchasing the masterpiece
painting of the person that
many refer to as "the greatest
hitter of all time" but that you
call, Daddy... Priceless!

EAST
Boston Red Sox
2007: 96-66, first place, World
Series champions.
Manager: Terry Francona
(fifth season).
He's Here: 1B Sean Casey,
RHP Bartolo Colon, RHP
David Aardsma.
He's Outta Here: 1B-OF Eric
Hinske, INF Royce Clayton.
Projected Lineup: CF Jacoby
Ellsbury (.353, 3 HRs, 18 RBIs,
9 SBs in 33 games), 2B Dustin
Pedroia (.317,8, 50,39 doubles),
DH David Ortiz (.332, 35117;.52-
doubles), LF
Manny Ramirez
(.296, 20, 88), 3B
Mike Lowell
(.324, 21, 120),
RF J.D. Drew -
(,270, 11, 64), 1B
Kevin Youkilis
(.288, 16, 83), C Jason Varitek
(.255, 17, 68), SS Julio Lugo
(.237, 8, 73).
Rotation: RH Josh Beckett
(20-7, 3.27 ERA), RH Daisuke
Matsuzaka (15-12, 4.40), LH Jon
Lester (4-0, 4.57), RH Tim
Wakefield (17-12,4.76), RH Clay
Buchholz (3-1, 1.59) or RH
Bartolo Colon (6-8, 6.34 with
Angels). RH Curt Schilling (9-8,
3.87, starts season on 60-day
disabled list).
Key Relievers: RH Jonathan
Papelbon (1-3, 1.85, 37/40
saves), LH Hideki Okajima (3-2,
2.22), RH Mike Timlin (2-1,
3.42), RH Manny Delcarmen (0-
0, 2.05), RH Julian Tavarez (7-
11, 5.15), RH Kyle Snyder (2-3,
3.81), LH Javier Lopez (2-1,
3.10), RH Bryan Corey (6-8, 3.69
at Triple-A Pawtucket) or RH
David Aardsma (2-1, 6.40 with
White Sox).
Hot Spot. Center field and
fifth starter. The competition
between veteran CF Coco
Crisp and rookie Ellsbury fiz-
zled when Crisp missed all but
two Florida exhibition games
with a groin injury. Ellsbury
had a mediocre spring train-
ing, but the job is probably his
to lose. Schilling's shoulder
injury that will sideline him at
least until the All-Star break
and Beckett's back injury that
caused him to miss the team's
season-opening trip to Japan
caused a shakeup in the rota-
tion. Boston signed free-agent
Colon, injured much of the last
two seasons, in late February.
He or Buchholz could be in the
rotation once Beckett returns
in early April.
Stat Sheet: Only three play-
ers Colon, Casey and
Aardsma are new to a team
that developed a nice blend of
youth and experience last sea-
son. None of them is expected
to play a major role. Ramirez's
20 HRs and 88 RBIs were way
off his averages as he struggled
to correct some mechanical
flaws. That shouldn't be a prob-
lem this year. He's been driving
the ball in spring training, has
a new, more positive outlook
and wants to convince the team
to pick up his $20 million
option for 2009.


Bottom Line: The World
Series winners two of the last
four seasons stood pat and
have several key young players
who gained experience. They
bid for LHP Johan Santana but
weren't willing to part with
some of those youngsters. Two
of them, Lester and Ellsbury,
made major contributions in
the World Series. Lowell, the
Series MVP took less money
than he could have made else-
where to stay in Boston with a
new three-year contract.
Pedroia, a fiery competitor
who toned down some of his
personality as a rookie, is more
vocal now and a spark plug in
the dugout. Ramirez and Ortiz
are back to supply the power in
the middle of a tough lineup.
New York Yankees
2007: 94-68, second place,
wild card.
Manager: Joe Girardi (first
season).
He's Here: RHP LaTroy
Hawkins, 1B-3B Morgan
Ensberg, LHP Billy Traber,
RHP Jonathan Albaladejo, OF-
1B Jason Lane.
He's Outta Here: Manager
Joe Torre, RHP Roger
Clemens, RHP Luis Vizcaino,
1B Doug Mientkiewicz, INF
Andy Phillips, LHP Ron
Villone, RHP Tyler Clippard.
Projected Lineup: LF-DH
Johnny Damon (.270, 12 HRs,
63 RBIs, 27/30 SBs),
SS Derek Jeter
(.322, 12, 73, 102
runs, 18
errors), RF
Bobby Abreu
(.283, 16, 101,123
runs, 40 doubles,
25 SBs, 84 BBs), 3B Alex
Rodriguez (.314, major league-
best 54 HRs, 156 RBIs and 143
runs, 24/28 SBs, 95 BBs, .422
OBP), C Jorge Posada (.338, 20,
90, 42 doubles, .426 OBP), DH-
LF Hideki Matsui (.285, 25,
103), 1B-DH Jason Giambi
(.236, 14, 39 in 83 games) or
Shelley Duncan (.257, 7, 17 in
74 at-bats) or Morgan Ensberg
(.230, 12, 39 in 282 ABs with
Astros and Padres), 2B
Robinson Cano (.306, 19, 97, 41
doubles, 7 triples), CF Melky
Cabrera (.273, 8, 73, 8 triples).
Rotation: RH Chien-Ming
Wang (19-7, 3.70 ERA, 9 HRs
allowed in 199 1-3 IP), LH Andy
Pettitte (15-9, 4.05, 215 1-3 IP),
RH Phil Hughes (5-3, 4.46 in 13
starts), RH Mike Mussina (11-
10, 5.15), RH Ian Kennedy (1-0,
1.89 in 3 late-season starts).
Key Relievers: RH Mariano
Rivera (3-4, 3.15, 30/34 saves, 74
Ks, 12 BBs in 71 1-3 IP), RH
Joba Chamberlain (2-0, 0.38, 1
save, 34 Ks, 6 BBs in 19 games
and 24 IP after August call-up),
RH Kyle Farnsworth (2-1, 4.80),
RH LaTroy Hawkins (2-5, 3.42
with Colorado), LH Billy
Traber (2-2, 4.76 in 28 games
with Washington), RH Jeff.
Karstens (1-4, 11.05 in 7 games).
Hot Spot: First base. In an
ideal world for the Yankees,
the 37-year-old Giambi would
stay healthy and play enough
adequate defense that Girardi
could give Matsui, Damon and
even Duncan regular at-bats at
DH. That might be too much to
ask. When he's in the lineup,


Giambi can still hit homers,
drive in runs and draw plenty
of walks. But if he becomes
such a liability in the field that
he can only DH, that could cut
into playing time for Damon
and Matsui, who is coming off
knee surgery. And if Giambi
winds up being just a danger-
ous bat on the bench, that
would make him mostly an
albatross in the final season of
his $120 million, seven-year
contract
Stat Sheet: The Yankees are
counting on their kids, high-
lighting a recent shift in the
organization's philosophy.
Three pitchers 23 or younger,
Hughes (21), Chamberlain (22)
and Kennedy (23), have. impor-.
tant roles this year. Hughes was
drafted out of high school in
2004, Chamberlain and
Kennedy out of college in 2006.
New York flirted this spring
with making Chamberlain a
starter, the role he was accus-
tomed to in college and the
minors. But he's back in the
bullpen as Rivera's primary
setup man, the job he flour-
ished in late last season.
Kennedy seems to have the
savvy of a veteran, and big
things are expected from
Hughes. They'll get help from a
potent offense, but New York's
fortunes could rest on how well
the inexperienced arms hold
up for a full season.
Bottom Line: The $200 mil-
lion Yankees are looking for
their 27th World Series title
and first since 2000. They've
pledged patience with those
talented youngsters and lost
their status as heavy favorites,
but missing the playoffs would
still be unacceptable. Senior
vice president Hank
Steinbrenner has assumed a
much larger and more public
role lately, and he has much of
the same demanding bluster as
his father, longtime owner
George Steinbrenner. The top
teams in the rugged American
League keep getting better,
though, and a trip to the post-
season is no longer a sure
thing. New York has earned 13
straight playoff berths, but was
knocked out in the first round
the past three years. This sea-
son, there's no proven lefty in
the bullpen, and the defense is
a weakness besides Cabrera.
The lineup remains loaded,
however, after New York
brought back all its key free
agents and picked up Abreu's
$16 million option during a
whirlwind offseason.
Rodriguez, coming off his third
AL MVL appeared headed out
of town after opting out of his
contract.
Toronto Blue Jays
2007: 83-79, third place.
Manager: John Gibbons (fifth
season).
He's Here: 3B Scott Rolen,
SS David Eckstein, INF Marco
Scutaro, OF Buck Coats, RHP
Randy Wells, RHP Shawn
Camp, RHP Lance Carter, LHP
John Parrish.
He's Outta Here: 3B Troy
"Glaus, RHP Josh Towers, RHP
Ty Taubenheim, INF Ray
Olmedo, LHP Joe Kennedy
Projected Lineup: SS David


Eckstein (.309, 3 HRs, 31 RBIs,
.356 OBP with St Louis), RF
Alex Rios (.297, 24, 85, 43 dou-
bles), CF Vernon Wells (.245, 16,

Overbay (.240, 10,44), 2B Aaron
Hill (.291, 17, 78, 47 doubles), C
Gregg Zaun (.242, 10, 52).
Rotation: RH Roy Halladay
(16-7, 3.71 ERA), RH A.J.
Burnett
(10-8,
3.75),
R H
Dustin McGowan (12-10, 4.08),
RH Shaun Marcum (12-6, 4.13),
RH Jese Litsch^ (t-9, 3.817. . -
Key Relievers: LH B.J. Ryan
(0-2, 12.46, 3/5 saves in 5 games
before injury), RH Jeremy
Accardo (4-4, 2.14, 30/35 saves),
RH Brandon League (0-0, 6.17),
LH Scott Downs (4-2, 2.17), LH
Brian Tallet (2-4, 3.47), LH John
Parrish (2-2, 5.71 with
Baltimore), RH Brian Wolfe (3-
1, 2.98).
Hot Spot: A lineup built to
slug came up lame in 2007, with
Toronto ranking in the bottom
half of the AL in every major
offensive category. To make up
ground on Boston, Detroit,
Cleveland and New York, the
Blue Jays will need Wells,
Rolen and Overbay to return to
form, and steady improvement
from Rios and Hill..
Stat Sheet: Injuries decimat-
ed the Blue Jays in 2007, with
13 players combining to miss
951 games. Ryan, returning
from elbow surgery, and Wells,
who had offseason shoulder
surgery, must return to form.
The injury bug has already bit-
ten Toronto this spring, with
right-hander Casey Janssen (2-
3, 2.35 ERA in 2007) out for the
year with a torn labrum. If
Toronto can't stay healthy,
they'll be out of the race in a
hurry.
Bottom Line: Hobbled by
injuries and held back by
punchless bats, the Blue Jays
discovered a surprise strength
in 2007 their talented young
arms. If McGowan, Marcum
and Litsch can pitch as well or
better this year and the hitters
return to form, Toronto has the
talent to make the playoff race
in the AL East an interesting
one. General manager J.P
Ricciardi hopes newcomers
and former World Series win-
ners Rolen and Eckstein will
inject a sense of urgency that
has been sorely lacking in
Toronto's clubhouse. Now
entering his seventh season,
Ricciardi has yet to deliver a
playoff team. Both he and
Gibbons could pay the price if
the Blue Jays can't stay in the
race into September.
Baltimore Orioles
2007: 69-93, fourth place.
Manager: Dave Trembley
(first full season).
He's Here: OF Adam Jones,
LHP George Sherrill, OF Luke
Scott, RHP Matt Albers, RHP
Dennis Sarfate, RHP Greg
Aquino, RHP Lance Cormier, C
Guillermo Quiroz, RHP
Randor Bierd.
He's Outta Here: LHP Erik


Bedard, SS Miguel Tejada, CF
Corey Patterson, RHP Todd
Williams, RHP Rob Bell, C J.R.
House, RHP Victor Santos.
Projected Lineup: 2B Brian
Roberts (.290, 12 HRs, 57 RBIs,
103 runs, 50 SBs), 3B Melvin
Mora (.274, 14, 58), RF Nick
Markakis (.300, 23, 112), 1B
Kevin Millar (.254, 17, 63), DH
Aubrey Huff (.280, 15, 72), C
Ramon Hernandez (.258, 9, 62),
LF Luke Scott (.255, 18, 64), CF
Adam Jones (.314, 24, 84 with
Triple-A Tacoma), SS Luis
Hernandez (.290, 1, 7).
Rotation: RH Jeremy
Guthrie (7-5, 3.70 ERA), LH
Adam Loewen (2-0, 3.56), RH
Daniel~4abpra (9-18, 5.55), RH
Steve TraehIl (6-8, 4.48), Rki
Matt Albers (4-11, 5.86).
Key Relievers: LH George
Sherrill (2-0, 2.36, 3 saves with
Seattle), LH Jamie Walker (3-2,
3.23, 81 games), RH Chad
Bradford (4-7, 3.34), RH Dennis
Sarfate (1-0, 1.08 in 7 games
with Houston).
Hot Spot: Shortstop. With
Tejada gone, the Orioles have
no choice but to rush
Hernandez into the picture.
He's had an awful spring in the
field and at the plate, and back-
up Brandon Fahey has a
decent glove but batted .167 in
40 games last year.
Stat Sheet: Cabrera led the
majors last season in losses,
walks and earned runs
allowed. The Orioles are losing
patience with the 6-foot-9
pitcher, who hasn't had a win-
ning season since his rookie
year in 2004.
Bottom Line: This is a
rebuilding year for the Orioles,
who no longer can pre-
tend they have a
shot at making
some noise in
the AL East.
Their rotation is
young, their
cleanup hitter lacks power and
they've got inexperience in
center field, left field, short-
stop and at the helm. Trembley
will enter his first full year as a
major league manager with lit-
tle hope of ending Baltimore's
franchise-record run of 10
straight losing seasons.
Tampa Bay Rays
2007: 66-96, fifth place.
Manager: Joe Maddon (third
season).
He's Here: RHP Matt Garza,

Hot Spots:Right field and the
bullpen. The Rays traded
Young, last year's runner-up
for AL Rookie of the Year, with
expectations that Rocco
Baldelli would return from a
lingering hamstring injury and
share the right field job with
Gomes. Baldelli will start the
season on the disabled list
amid speculation that his
career could be in jeopardy
because of a mysterious condi-
tion that leaves him feeling
extremely fatigued after short
workouts. That leaves the pbsi-
tion to Gomes, not known for
his defense, and the oft-injured
Floyd, who at this point in his
career is more suited to be a
full-time designated hitter. The
bullpen was one of the worst in
the majors in 2007. Percival
takes over the closer's job,
moving Reyes into a setup role.
Maddon also is counting on
Miller and Wheeler's experi-
ence to make a difference.
Stat Sheet: Despite the addi-
tion of veterans such as Floyd,
Percival and Miller, the.,Rays
will open the season with one
of the youngest rosters in base-
ball. Crawford is coming off an
All-Star season and Pena won
AL Comeback Player of the
Year honors. Tampa Bay will
need another big year from
them, as well as strong perform-
ances from Upton, Iwamura;,
Bartlett and young pitcher
Kazmir, Shields and Garza to
make a run at .500 for the first
time in franchise history.
Bottom Line: Thanks to a
deep farm system, the Rays
have finally assembled enough
talent on the major league level
to have reasonable expectations
of escaping the AL East cellar
The departures of Young and
Dukes makes for better harmo-
ny in the clubhouse, the addi-
tion of Garza and Bartlett figure
to improve the starting pitching
and defense, and Aybar was
acquired to hold down third
base until management decides
top prospect Evan Longoria is
ready for the majors. Still, the
prospect for success in '08
hinges on how the young start-
ing rotation and overhauled
bullpen hold up. While the Rays
are confident they're closing the
gap on the Red Sox and Yankees
in the division, the 38 games
they play against those teams
ultimately will prove whether
they're right or wrong.

Matt Thornton (4-4, 4.79), LH
Boone Logan (2-1, 4.97), RH
Mike MacDougal (2-5, 6.80).
Hot Spot: The hot corner. A
healthy Crede is a Gold Glove-
caliber fielder with the poten-
tial to hit 30 homers, as he did
two years ago. Question is:
Does he get another chance
with the White Sox or do they
trade him to make room for
Josh Fields?
Stat Sheet: Contreras lost
nine straight decisions as a
starter -during one brutal
stretch last season, while Dye
and Konerko saw their aver-
ages plummet by 61 and 54
points respectively from 2006.
Thome's average led the team
- the first time since 1988 the
White Sox did not have a play-
er hit at least .280. Chicago also
did not have a 100-RBI man for
the first time since 1990. And,
to complete the ugly picture,
here are a few moreastatistics.
Chicago was outscored 839-693,
the largest run differential
(146) for the team since 1976.
Bottom Line: The White Sox
struck out going for Torii
Hunter, Miguel Cabrera,
Aaron Rowand and Kosuke
Fukudome in the offseason.
Instead of splashy moves, they
retooled. They acquired
Swisher, who will probably be
used in left if the White Sox
are comfortable with Owens
playing center and leading off.
Otherwise, Swisher might
play center.

1, 4.05), RH Brett
Tomko (2-11,
5.80 with
Dodgers; 2-1,

Diego).
Key Relievers: RH Joakim
Soria (2-3,2.48, 17/21 saves), RH
Yasuhiko Yabuta (4-6, 2.73 in
Japan), LH Jimmy Gobble (4-1,
3.02), LH Ron Mahay (2-0, 2.77
with Texas; 1-0, 2.25 with
Atlanta).
Hot Spot: Offense. The
Royals did little to upgrade a
punchless lineup that was last
in the league by far with 102
home runs. They added only
Guillen, who has a potent bat
but brings a history of strained
relations with previous man-
agers. Can he get along with
Hillman? A lack of team speed
is another concern.
Stat Sheet: The Royals had
four promising rookies last
year. But will Butler, Gordon,
Bannister and Soria continue
to progress in their sophomore
seasons? Gordon was a disap-
pointment as a rookie,
although his numbers
improved in the second half.
Bottom Line: The big change
for the Royals is Bell being


replaced by Hillman, the only
manager in the major leagues
who didn't play or coach in the
bigs. Hillman was a huge suc-
cess during a five-year stint
managing in Japan and
remains extremely popular
there. But the question is
whether he can repeat those
achievements in America and
bring along the Royals' young
players. Hillman, who proved
in spring training that he won't
put up with laziness or inatten-
tion to detail, has a very young
club that might be receptive to
his message of taking care of
.the little things. Breakthrough
seasons by Butler, Gordon,
Teahen and DeJesus could
enable this team to avoid a fifth
straight last-place finish.

Story about

omehow, looking at Page
1A on Good Friday didn't
feel so good. Here's a
couple of the headlines:
No injuries in downtown
shooting.
Fight leads to gunfire.
Those headlines were about
incidents that took place right
here in Citrus County.
Turning to the Nation &
World page didn't make Good
Friday much better A couple
of the headlines there:
Chinese troops staff
Tibetan areas.
Activists point to deaths in
Colombia.
But wait there was one
story at the bottom of the page
with a headline that wasn't
about war, corruption, hatred
or toxic chemicals:
Science and Bible agree:
It's better to give than to
receive.
Now, that's a Good Friday
story and a good story on
any day.
Basically, Harvard and
University of British Columbia
researchers got to wondering
if how people spend their
money makes a difference in
their personal happiness.
Their conclusion: Yessiree,

Plenty of

good things

going on
Newspapers are notori-
ously guilty of report-
ing bad news. Bad stuff
is out of the ordinary and that
makes it news.
But let's not forget that a lot
of good things are going on in
our hometown. On this Easter
Sunday, I'm not going to men-
tion lawsuits, crime or politi-
cians. Let me share with you 10
things that remind me that this
is a great place to live.
1. Our community is coming
together to save Three Sisters
Springs in Crystal River. This
precious little piece of para-
dise was scheduled to become
someone's condominium proj-
ect. Instead, lots of folks have
come together to raise the
money and seek grants so the
landmark can be preserved for
future generations. That's got
to make you feel good.
2. A YMCA is coming togeth-
er in Citrus County. For 20
years, people, have talked
about starting up a YMCA, but
finally, in 2008, things have
started to jell. Programs are
now being offered around
Citrus and the YMCA is going
to be a force in our future.
3. If you have not noticed, it's
raining outside and the lake
levels have begun to rise.
People who live along many
parts of the Tsala Apopka lake
chain can once again get their
boats in the water. Life is

CONFLICT OF INTEREST




County needs



independent



legal advice


he administration's mis-
handling of the Tom Dick
termination case has
raised a new and interesting
issue: Just who is in charge of
making decisions in county gov-
ernment?
As has been well THE I1
reported, Tom Dick Who is b
was the assistant in the
county administra-
tor who was termi-
nated by the then- OUR 01
new administrator Commis
over an accusation should
of insubordination, deci'
involving contacts
he made with commissioners
concerning the construction of
the Emergency Operation
Center.
Dick filed a federal lawsuit
against the county and the litiga-
tion is slowly navigating its way
through the legal process.
June Fisher, the county admin-
istrator who fired Dick, has
since quit the job and returned
to Highlands County.
The new wrinkle in this
embarrassing episode in local
government is that the litigating
parties apparently had a discus-
sion over a settlement offer that
was proposed. But before the
proposed settlement ever made
it before the county commission,
county attorney Robert "Butch"
Battista apparently made the
decision to reject the offer.
Battista apparently decided
that he did not need input from
the policymakers in the county,
so he just went ahead and made
the decision himself. He report-
edly informed two of the com-
missioners Vicki Phillips and
Joyce Valentino and left a
telephone message for a third.
The two other board members
were left in the dark that a set-
tlement offer had been made
and rejected. One commissioner,
John Thrumston, learned about
the settlement discussions when
he overheard conversations in a
hallway.
If this is the county's policy for
doing business and we find
that hard to believe then it
needs to be changed.
Citizens elected our county
commissioners, not the county
attorney. Our expectation is that
commissioners will be the ones
whp make the big decisions.
Some of the commissioners -
notably those who were not kept
in the loop by the county attor-
ney were furious that they
were left out of the decision-


Winking doctor
I'm 88 and know when I
have an ulcer. I didn't need
or want the endoscopy, but
the doctor got mad and
won't believe anything I tell
him. I had had a stroke and
the medicine brought on
the latest ulcer attack. On
the last two visits, he would CALL
not prescribe anything I 563,
had got help from the VA -
and he grinned as he left
each time. The last visit, he actually
winked at me, the utmost in con-
tempt. I've been really down over it.
Free antibiotics
I just want to take this time to thank
the B&W Rexall Pharmacy in Inverness


.(


making process. At least one,
commissioner Dennis Damato of
Crystal River, said he felt the set-
tlement offer was a fair one.
On Tuesday, the county com-
mission held a "shade" meeting
with attorney
SSUE: Battista to discuss
eing kept the legal issue. In
ing kept such shade meet-
ade ings, the public and
press are denied
DINION: access. These shade
;sioners meetings are
make allowed when elect-
sion. ed officials are dis-
cussing current liti-
gation. A transcript of the dis-
cussions is kept and can be
reviewed once the legal case is


settled.
The county commission needs
to review this policy on who
makes decisions and insist that
in the future they are the ones
involved in making the call on
major legal cases. And they
shouldn't use the confidentiality
of shade meetings to avoid
explaining to the public the pol-
icy issues involved in this case.
In this specific case, attorney
Battista has been up to his neck
in the mishandling of the situa-
tion from the very beginning. It
was the county attorney's office
that advised that Dick's actions
were a violation of the Sunshine
Law even though the state
attorney's office said that no
such violation existed.
Administrator Fisher used
Battista's advice to make her
decision to terminate Dick
These issues have placed the
county taxpayers at risk in a fed-
eral lawsuit and they have
ensured that huge legal bills
from an outside legal expert are
on the way.
In this specific case, Battista
should no longer be involved.
Because he is one of the players
who got the county involved in
the lawsuit, he obviously has a
conflict of interest in seeking or
delaying any resolution. The
idea that he could personally
make the decision to reject a set-
tlement offer without input from
the elected officials is absurd.
The county has goofed on this
issue from the very beginning.
Commissioners need to get legal
input from someone who has an
independent and unemotional
view of the county's situation.
And once again, our elected offi-
cials need to take back control of
the decision-making authority at
the county courthouse.

|n for the free antibiotics they
gave me a couple of months
ago for my pneumonia. I
think the owner and pharma-
cist, Ken Heimann, would
make an excellent county
commissioner. He's in the
lead with helping those of us
who need antibiotics by giv-
ing them out at no charge as
0579 long as I had a doctor's cer-
tificate prescription. Thank
you, Mr. Heimann. I appreci-
ate your community consideration.
Thanks for wallet
I would like to thank the person who
was kind enough to turn my son's wal-
let in to fairground officials during the
fair we had this week. Thank you a lot.

C-IM.N.A.......AY MA/R....2..2008..


That whomsoever believeth in him shall not perish


Today is Easter Sunday,
the day on which
Christians celebrate the
resurrection of a living savior.
Those of you who read this col-
umn regularly will probably
recognize the following piece;
it has been published before,
but I don't know a better way
of saying it
"For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten
son, that whosoever believeth
in him should not perish, but
have everlasting life." John
3:16, King James Version.
What could be simpler or
more straightforward?


Sometimes we get
confused and begin
to concentrate too
much on the theo-
logical theories
thrust at us from
every angle, but in
truth, the saving
grace of God's Son,
Jesus Christ, is just
as simple as believ-
ing in Him.
When I was a
child, I couldn't
understand how


Fred Brannen

LIFE


anyone could fail to believe.
The people I loved and trusted
said it was true. It was written


in the Bible and the
Bible's not just
words on paper, it's
the word of God.
How could any-
one doubt?
But as I grew
older, while I main-
tained my faith, I
began to understand
doubt Even one of
the 12 disciples,
Thomas, doubted.
"But Thomas, one
of the twelve, was


not with them when Jesus
came. The other disciples
therefore said unto him, we


have seen the lord. But he said
unto them, except I shall see
in his hands the print of the
nails, and put my finger into
the print of the nails and
thrust my hand into his side, I
will not believe." John 20:24-
26, King James Version.
As a child, with that pre-
cious commodity, childlike
faith, I had no room for doubt.
But like most folks, as the
years passed, I learned skepti-
cism.
"Then came Jesus, the doors
being shut, and stood in the
midst and said, peace be unto
you. Then he said unto


Thomas, reach hither thy fin-
ger and behold my hand and
thrust it into my side, and be
not faithless, but believing.
And Thomas answered and
said unto him, my Lord and my
God. Jesus saith unto him,
Thomas, because thou hast
seen me, thou hast believed;
blessed are they that have not
seen me and yet have
believed."John 20:26-29, King
James Version.
Today, I understand that the
basic Christian dogma is not
quite as self-evident as it
seemed to me when I was a
child. It goes against the laws


of nature to believe that a baby
could be born of a virgin and
that a man could die on a
cross, then, on the third day,
walk out of the tomb.
Yet, herein lies the beauty
and simplicity of it all: The
Son of God is not subject to the
laws of nature. If we can just
accept that "God gave his only
begotten Son," then, in faith
believing, we "shall not per-
ish, but have everlasting life."

The Second Amendment helps prevent crime


well regulated
Militia, being neces-
sary to the security of
a free State, the right of the
people to keep and bear Arms,
shall not be infringed." That's
the Second Amendment to our
Constitution.
Does that mean that we have
an absolute right to own and
carry firearms? Or does it mean
that we have that right only as
part of a "regulated militia?"
Does it mean that we must be
permitted to bear arms so that
we can become an organized
militia, should the need arise?
The U.S. Supreme Court is
addressing that this week
The case, Heller v. District of
Columbia, was brought by a
group of citizens who want to
keep firearms in their homes to
protect themselves. (Washington
is also a crime and homicide


capitol.) The District
has banned owner-
ship of any firearm
that is a functional
weapon because it
supports the propo-
sition that limiting
access to weapons
reduces violent
crime. It contends
the right to gun own-
ership pertains only
to citizens who are
part of a "regulated
militia."
This issue arises


Dr. Wi
Dix
OTH
VOIl


because governments are driv-
en by two falsehoods:
1. Increased gun ownership
causes an increase in violent
crimes and an increase in
shooting deaths of children. 2.
Laws banning products or serv-
ices are effective even when
there is demand for them.


As regards gun
ownership and vio-
lent crimes: States
with the highest gun
ownership rates
have the lowest
crime rates. Cities
that outlaw guns,
such as D.C. and
Chicago, have not
lliam experienced a
on reduction in violent
IER crimes or gun-relat-
DES ed crimes. Countries
such as England and
Australia have expe-
rienced notable increases in
violent crimes in the years fol-
lowing passage of gun-control
laws. In the U.S., as the rate of
gun ownership has increased,
the number of gun-related
crimes has decreased.
As for shooting deaths of
children: There are very few


between ages 1 and 12 years. It
is only when you call the 17-to-
19-years age group "children"
that you get a significant num-
ber. Accidental deaths involv-
ing children average fewer
than 200 per year, fewer than
drownings and far fewer than
those killed in auto accidents
with their parents.
As for the effectiveness of
governments banning weapons,
consider this: Alcohol con-
sumption was considered to
greatly increase violent crime
and lead to the breakup of fam-
ilies. In the 1920s, it was "pro-
hibited." What resulted was
continued easy availability of
alcohol through a profitable
black market. There was a
marked increase in violent
crimes, and people who tradi-
tionally drank responsibly were
deprived of the pleasure of an


occasional cocktail.
And this: At the cost of tens of
billions of dollars, we have
waged a 20-year war against
illicit drugs. The result: A thriv-
ing black market, drugs readily
available on the street and an
increase in crime. Prostitution
was banned as well. Can't imag-
ine how the governor of New
York found one! Any fool knows
that making gun ownership
illegal removes them from law-
abiding citizens who would Utse
them for defense, while leaving
them in the hands of criminals.
Professor John Lott has writ-
ten extensively on guns and
crime. His studies of FBI and
public data suggest that more
than a million crimes are pre-
vented each year by citizens
legally owning guns. What D.C.
and Chicago and other cities
are doing, banning handguns,


has not worked. Perhaps they
should insist their citizens be
armed and provide weapons
training for them instead!
As regards the Second
Amendment, I think the
Founders wanted citizens to be
able to overthrow an oppres-
sive federal government,
should the need arise.

Hot Comrner DR. DIXON


Just amazed
Dr." Dodge; I want to thank-
you for your article on Iraq. I'm
sure that I like you, probably
- am amazed that Dr. Dixon
just doesn't get it.
Shameful comparison
I quite disagree with Dr.
Dixon's retrospective on Iraq. It
is little more than right-wing
Republican propaganda. I am
curious about his comments.
about Putin's warning and
other WMD comments. Where
did Dixon get his facts? ... If I
were a member of the
"Support Our Troops" militia, I
would-be somewhat miffed by


his trivializing the death of .. .
4,000 U.S. military with a corn-
-parison-toa.our- shameful annual
highway death toll. It's like say-
ing we suffered 1,000 military
KIA each year in Iraq so
what? We kill 10 times as many
on the highway.
Explain to parents
Does Dr. Dixon think it is no
big deal that we have suffered
4,000 KIA and 30,000 wound-
ed in Iraq because we kill
40,000-plus each year on our
highways? Would he please
explain that to the parents of
the 4,000? Also, why hasn't
Dixon volunteered for Iraq if he
loves this war so much?


Study the issues
Stn readi-g the Chonicle,
everybody's-complaining
about the government from
President Bush down to the
state government and down. to
the county commission. You
people who voted a straight
Republican ticket got what you
deserve. The only problem is,
we all got them. Next
time you vote, 01
remember (to.) study S -
the issues and vote
for the person, not
the party.
Party switch
_This is concerning
the Democrat vote in
Florida. I voted and if CA-LL
I have to vote again 563
because the 563"
Democrats messed
up, just think about what will
happen in the White House. I
don't know about all you peo-
ple out there, but think twice
if we have to vote again. I will
change,my party affiliation to
Republican. I'm a very dis---
gruntled and disappointed
Democrat.
Self damage
During the last umpteen.
years, we have. enduJred the
Democrats constantly and
loudly Bush bashing for any-
thing and everything, includ-
ing those Republicans that
disenfranchised Florida
Democrat voters, which in
turn lost them the election.
But we see that Howard Dean
and the DNC seem to be
doing major disenfranchising
of their own. It looks like the
Democrats have only them-
selves to blame.
Just ridiculous
To the people that are antic-
ipating having a mail-in vote
for the election: Do you realize


how mqa.ny-p-eople-are..jusL.t_....
'going to throw it away? Unless
possibly some will keep it and
send it in if the postage is
paid by the government. But
that's ridiculous. I know from
my point, it's ridiculous. I am
not going to turn around and
send it in, and I'm sure there
are many, many others that
won't.
SThree strikes


1f4f 2001,2004, 2008
three votes, three
strikes and you're
p ut. The Republican
Party has earned the
right to lose in
November. The econo-
my, inflation, national
07 debt, gas prices, war,
0579 corruption and many
more. The
Democratic National
Committeeman "Caesar" Dean
and his imperial superdele-
gates are willing to give
Florida to John McCain. May
God forgive them.
Stripped of right
As a citizen of the United
States of America, it is my
right to vote; it is my right for
my vote to'coubiif. I can live"
here as an alien resident and
'not have the vote. The only
right that is bestowed on a
U.S. citizen is the vote that no
one else in the United States
has but a citizen. I believe
that the Republican
Legislature, our Republican
governor, chose to change the
primary. And when they did
so, then Howard Dean and the
Democratic National
Committee and the
Republican National
Committee stripped me of my
right as a U.S. citizen to cast
my ballot in a fair election
when I was stripped of my
-vote in the.Jan, 29 primary.


We carry guns
I have carried a legally concealed hand-
gun for most of my adult life. I am a
Vietnam veteran and Life Member of NRA.
I currently have a CCW for the state of
Florida and so does my wife. We both carry
our weapons by the letter of the law. In
other words, we do not carry our weapons
into bars, airports, county buildings, sher-
iff's facilities, etc., but our firearms are
carried wherever it is legal to do so.
However, since my car is an extension
of my home, it is no one's business,
including employer or law enforcement,
if there is a firearm locked in my vehicle.
Charlie Dean should be ashamed to
attach himself to this bill. This is just
another example of big government try-
ing to stifle the rights of individuals.

Mature approach
During the past several months, much
has been written about the plight of the
working people of Citrus County. There
has been a concentrated effort by some
factions to lay blame at the feet of the
county commission and impact fees.
A look at the national picture now
shows those concepts to be incorrect The
economic slowdown is clearly a national
problem with a dire outlook
Citrus County has much to offer both the
retiree and the workforce. Unfortunately, it
does not appear that as a county, as a whole,
we are willing to identify and implement
concepts that will draw both to the area


All factions must come together to identi-
fy drawbacks and positives. A plan would
be developed to correct the drawbacks and
capitalize on the positives. An implementa-
tion program would ensure effectiveness.
What I would envision would forming a
discussion group made up of the
Chronicle, Chamber of Commerce, repre-
sentatives from both cities and the county
governments, Economic Development
Committee, 20-20, selected citizens,
builders association, dive shops, motel
interests, etc. The idea would be to have
an open forum with the assistance of a
fascinator to identify both the positives
and negatives that are affecting business
and growth. A one-day event could get it
started and lay some basic groundwork
Once started, the group could meet week-
ly until a plan has been developed.
The plan may consist of re-doing the
impact fee process, streamlining the per-
mitting process, nationwide advertisement
for Citrus County, working with the board of
education to develop job skill programs,
etc. Once the list is created, it will need to
be prioritized by both need and plausibility.
As a community with the many
resources available, we may be able to cor-
rect issues and improve the overall desir-
ability of Citrus County thus increasing
our share of the limited national growth.
As long as this county remains factional-
ized it will remain marginalized. Positive
growth and development are at our finger-
tips if as a community we can grow up and
take a mature approach to our challenges.

Combined outage
This is for one of the suppos-

around. We have been trying to
work with them for over a
week. Our television, Internet
and telephone service has been
going in and out for eight days


now, and we've heard
they're upgrading,
there are outages,
there's nothing they
can do. And supposed
workers were going to
come one day and
then another day and
another day and
another day. So I just
want you to be aware
that if you get with
this company, this
may happen to you,
too, and it's very

GI mortgages
How to stimulate the econo-
my: After the Second World
War ended, there actually was
a housing shortage and GIs
lived in temporary Quonset hut
homes. The government
installed a new form of mort-
gage called a GI mortgage with
an annual rate of 4 percent.
This encouraged a lot of veter-
ans to buy a home. Why can't
the same thing be done today
now for all the veterans who
served in the numerous wars
since World War II? If we can
give billions of dollars every
year to foreign countries, why
can't we do something to help
our own vets?
Beatle's divorce
Paul McCartney's ex-wife,
Heather Mills, I see only got
$48.6 million in her divorce
settlement. She was asking for
tons more, but didn't get it. It's
kind of ironical how some of
these people today will latch
onto a star, marry them and


know down the road someday
that maybe a divorce settle-
ment will net (them millions) ...
Hopefully that will end and this
is a lesson learned.
Private research
(A) letter to the editor titled
"Understanding brains" ... sug-
gests that the govern-
ment invest in
research for treatment
of mental disorders.
Where in the
B Constitution does it
state medical
research is the
responsibility of the
government? The gov-
ernment is already
579 involved in too many
things they have no
business being
involved in. Medical research
belongs in the private sector,
as do many other things.
Few planes land
I am an airplane owner and I
support aviation. However, last
Sunday, a beautiful day, only
one airplane left or landed at
the Inverness Airport. To spend
$5 million to increase the size
of this little-used airport is
totally irresponsible at this
time.
Retired soldiers
I'm hearing that some retired
soldiers might run for Congress
in November. I think we need a
lot of retired soldiers. Instead
of taking a job at home, get a
job and run for Congress. We
need lots of you to run for
Congress. We're tired of just
having lawyers up there.
Giving from heart
In response to the letter to
the editor on Wednesday,
"Fundraiser prizes." If you sit
here and go someplace and
give money for a fundraising
project, don't sit here and


expect something in return.
Just like when I sit here and I
give money at a store that's
raising money for Shands
Hospital and they ask me,
"Well, put your name on this
little card and we'll hang it
up." I look at them and I tell
them I don't need my name
written down anywhere. I'm
giving from the heart, not
because I want my name up
on the wall.
Still in Iraq
March 19, five years ago
today, we invaded Iraq. We're
still there and it doesn't seem
like much has progressed. In
1942, we went to war, World
War II, and it was completed in
less than five years.
Something's wrong with this
picture. We can complete a
world war and be victorious
and we can't win in Iraq.
Parkway views
I also comment on this
"Open-air tunnels," concerning
the Suncoast Parkway. I've
driven up and down to Tampa
several times and probably
didn't see 10 cars on the road
the entire time. Why doesn't
the Chronicle support not put-
ting that into our beautiful
Nature Coast rather than pro-
tecting the county commis-
sioners and their special inter-
ests in this matter? Why don't
you print something that says
don't put this through our
beautiful Nature Coast, and
support the citizens who sup-
port you and have bought your
paper for the last umpteen
years.
Eatery goes green
I just wanted to make a big
congratulation to Cinnamon
Sticks in Inverness. It is the very
first restaurant I've ever been in
that is going green. I had some-
thing to-go and they gave me a

cardboard container instead of
Styrofoam. I asked the lady and
she said, "We're going green."
And I think that is just the best
thing in the world because the
Styrofoam just sits in the landfills.
It doesn't go down. We're just
shoving our ground full of all this
stuff for our children and our
grandchildren, that they'll never
be able to get rid of, and the card-
board will decompose. So I just
would like to congratulate them.
Respect law
I am a Democrat. I will not
vote for any candidate who does-
n't respect the law. For instance,
if one of the candidates say
they're going to release the two
border guards that stopped an
illegal carrying dope, and the
two border guards are the ones
that are serving 10 years in
prison. Let one of those candi-
dates stick up for those border
guards. They were doing their
duty and they're the ones that's
suffering. That's who I would
consider a very good candidate.


Bring back tuba
Will the person who stole the
tuba in front of our house, the
tuba on East Dawson Drive in
Inverness, at the end of January,
please return it? It belonged to
our son, who is deceased, and it
means an awful lot to us, the
tuba. No questions asked.
Loud commercials
This TV is driving me crazy
... I get the sound of the pic-
ture that I'm watching to my
hearing but then when com-
mercials come on, they drive
me out of the room because
they're so loud. Can't some-
body do something about this?
Fine arts ribbons
Could someone out there
explain to me why fine arts at
Citrus County Fair doesn't give
every painting a ribbon? They did
make the effort to bring it in and
then get a judge who doesn't give
everyone something. I don't
understand this. I was there and


saw third place, first place, sec-
ond place, but some without any.
What's going on with this? They
look as good as some did to me.
It's not fair. It just discourages the
painter, I think.
Dark streets
They need more streetlights
here on Raven Terrace. There's
only one up at the beginning. On
down farther, there's none. We
need some on down here at the
end of the second hill. It's pretty
dark out here at night. I wish
they'd fix something...
Road needed
It seems things always remain
the same. I remember when I first
moved to Citrus County in '86,
the big cry around here then was
the bypass to get all the traffic off
of (U.S.) 19, and it was fought by
- you guessed it Sugarmill
Woods people and Pine Ridge.
And of course it did pass then.
It's similar to what they're crying
about the Veterans Expressway.
They need that expressway

out sin, pray for us who
have recourse to thee
(3 times) Holy Mother, I

hands (3 times.) Holy
Spirit, you who solve all
problems, light all roads
so that I can attain my
goal. You, who gave
me the Divine gift to
forgive and forget all
evil against me and
that in all Instances in
my life you are with me.
I want in this short
prayer to thank you for
all things as you confirm
once again that I never
want to be separated
from you in Eternal
Glory. Thank you for
your mercy toward me
and mine. The person
must say this prayer 3
consecutive days. After
3 days, the request will
be granted. This prayer
must be published after
the favor is granted.
Pray the Rosary Dailyl

Grubby problem


Chinch bugs, mole crickets,
grubs it seems as though
our turf grass is always
under attack from one pest or
another. Luckily, many of our pest
problems can be prevented sim-
ply by observing good
cultural practices. Cul-
tural practices include
responsible fertiliza-
tion, adjusting the irri-
gation timer to reflect
seasonal changes in
irrigation needs, never
applying more than
one inch of irrigation
water (which is the
maximum amount of Audre
water that can be F'
absorbed in the root
zone), and mowing to
the correct height for the turf
species.
Adult beetles are beginning to
take flight, in search of that per-
fect spot to lay their eggs, which
will hatch into grubs. So, what
does an expectant mother beetle
look for in a "nursery?"
Moist soil is critical to egg
hatching and survival. While we
have no control over the recent
(much-appreciated) rainfall, we


can prevent additional soil satu-
ration by turning off our irriga-
tion system when there's been
adequate rainfall. Over-fertilized
turf grass may also be more
appealing to grubs.
Now is the time for
prevention of grub
problems, before their
damage becomes
apparent. Heavy grub
infestations will cause
the grass to gradually
thin, yellow and die,
leaving the turf feeling
soft and spongy.
Scattered, irregular,
y Durr brown patches of grass
mN appear as the turf dies,
increasing in size over
time. Grubs also attract
a number of unwelcome dinner
guests to your yard, such as
moles, raccoons and armadillos.
Ground beetles, ants, tiphiid
wasps and scoliid wasps are ben-
eficial species that have the
potential to manage grub prob-.
lems if given the opportunity;
however, unnecessary pesticide
applications may kill these bene-

Carved panel sports curious scene; baseball card values
D ear John: I recently purchased a
wood carving for $3 at a yard sale
in Virginia Beach. It is carved from
a heavy, dense wood and appears to depict
an early American or European scene. It
measures 24 inches long by 13.25 inches
wide, is 1.25 inches
thick at its thickest
point, and weighs 15

coating of a varnish
or lacquer, and the
wood is brown or
red underneath.
Can you give me any
information about
this piece, such as John Sikorski
its age, value, ori-
gin, collectibility? SIKORSKI'S
My wife thinks it ATTIC
was a waste of $3, "_
but someone obviously spent considerable -.%
time making it. R.D., Internet
Dear RD.: The subject matter in your
carved panel is neither American nor
European. My guess is perhaps Bali,
Polynesia or from that part of the world.
There is no specific collector interest. I
think, on a lucky day, it would sell for at ,
least 10 times what you paid for it. -- M'R
Dear John: I have three Hall of Fame
baseball cards of guys who hit over 500
home runs. They are 1986 series. The Special to the Chronicle


Please see ATTIC/Page 12E


This wood carving appears to show a scene from Ball, Polynesia, or some other location in the southern Pacific. There is
no specific collector interest; it might sell for around $30.

cards are from the Big League
Chew baseball cards collec-
tion. One is Mickey Mantle, #6
of 12, the second is Jimmie
Foxx, #7 of 12, and the third
card is Ted Williams, #8 of 12.
All are first printing. What are
they worth? D. & R.M.,
Inverness
Dear D. & RM.: In order to
find out what your baseball
cards might sell for, contact the
specialty auction company
Mastro Auctions, 1515 W 22nd
St, Suite 125, Oak Brook, IL
60523-8412.
Their phone number is (630)
472-1200 and the Web site is
www.mastronet. com. Good
luck and let us know how it
works out
Dear John: I read your arti-
cle every week in the newspa-
per and listen to your very
good radio show every
Saturday.
Here is a picture of a pipe. It
is 11 inches long with the name
Partsch. Under the lid, all I can
read is Stru. It was given to me
by my mother. She did not
know much about it except it
was .her great-great-grandfa-
ther's in Kentucky. F.,
Crystal River
Dear F.: I think your pipe
was produced between World
War I and II. Current collector
interest in the pipe is low.
Potential dollar value is below
$50.
Dear John: Here is a photo-
graph of a 12 inch by 16 inch
framed piece of art purchased
in 1933. It is titled "The Sacred


Heart," with " J.EL." in the
left corner and a signature of
"S. Ross" in the right corner.
It was purchased in
Mayslake Dollar-a-month Club.
Could you shed any light on
this print? A.Y., Crystal
River
Dear A.Y.: I was not able to
find a listing for an S. Ross that
did religious paintings or
prints. The initials to the left
are for the company that paid
the copyright fee to produce
the prints. There is no specific
collector interest. Potential
dollar value is catch-as-catch-
can.
Dear John: I have a 45 RPM
record and wonder if you can
tell me if it has any value. It is
in good condition. It is by
M.S.R. Records, Maihzl
Publishing, BMI. It is titled
"Jolly Tar of USS New Jersey"
by Wallis S. Lewis. On the flip
side it has "Little and Petite"
by Pam Ramsey R.D.B.,
Homosassa
Dear R.D.B.: I was not able
to find any collector interest in
your record. To be sure, try
contacting the record special-
ist Sharpe's Music at (352) 377-
1363.


John Sikorski has been
a professional in the
antiques business for

.. RIGHT: This pipe proba-
bly dates from the years bet-
ween World War I and II. There's
not much collector interest; it
would probably fetch less than
$50. .: F I This print
was purchased in 1933. There
is no specific collector interest.
Potential value is catch-as-

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


Topping' can cause serious damage to trees


In the past, we have talked
about the facts and conse-
quences of tree topping.
Unfortunately, topping contin-
ues to be a common practice,
despite the efforts of various anti-
topping advertising campaigns.
A survey questionnaire was
conducted to gain insight into
homeowners' motivations and
knowledge of the consequences
of topping. Results indicate that
topping is viewed more favorably
by less-informed homeowners.


There are other means of reduc-
ing the height of a tree. The fact
remains that good pruning prac-
tice rarely removes more than
one-quarter of the crown which,
in turn, does not interfere with
the ability of a tree's leafy crown
to manufacture food.
Topping removes so much of
the crown that it upsets an older
tree's well-developed crown-to-
root ratio and temporarily cuts off
the food-making ability.
A topped tree is a disfigured


tree. The large stubs of a topped
tree have a difficult time forming
calluses. Topping also prevents
the tree's chemically based natu-
ral defense system from doing its
job.
The epicormic growth of a
topped tree is more weakly
attached than a limb that devel-
ops normally thereby making
the tree much more of a hazard
than before. Once a tree is topped
it is robbed of its beauty, grace
and health.


DID YOU KNOW: The oak tree
is the tree of worship and power?

JANE WEBER/Special to the Chronicle
S.. Wild coral honeysuckle is a vine that will weave and wind its way around any object in its
path. RIGHT: Hummingbirds and butterflies can't resist the delicious nectar of honeysuckles.


Hummingbirds are back from
their migration to warmer
southern zones, where there
are' flowers all winter. While these
tiny birds do depend on insects for
about half of their diet, they love
sweet nectar. To lure hummingbirds
to your garden, you need to grow
bright flowers preferably tubular
and red with lots of high-energy
nectar. The best ones in this area are
the taller, exotic, red pentas; native
red sage, Salvia coccinea; red buck-
eye, Aesculus pavia; and coral hon-


eysuckle, Lonicera sempervirens.
Native coral honeysuckle is twin-
ing, climbing vine. It ranges from
central Florida north to Connecticut
in hardiness zones 10 fo 4. While it
can be used as a scrambling ground
cover on roadsides and large, open
spaces, it will promptly climb any
vertical object it meets trees, mail-
boxes, poles, fences, arbors and trel-
lises. The woody stems become sev-
eral inches in diameter with age, so

festival will be comprised of display
and education information and lots
of orchids and supplies for sale.
A number of commercial orchid
growers from the region, including

be on hand to answer questions
and have their greenhouse prod-
ucts for sale. There will also be
supplies, potting materials and
other items for sale. A potting
booth will upgrade overgrown
plants to new containers, and a
problems booth will be available for
help in diagnosing problems for
plants brought to it.
Membership will also be avail-
able in the Orchid Lovers Club,
which includes participation in
activities like orchid buying trips,
lectures, and picnics.
The event will be at the SNPJ
Lodge, which is just off the
Suncoast Parkway at 13383
County Line Road. To get there,
get off at the third exit going south
from U.S. 98. Then go west on
County Line Road toward the gulf

open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sat-
urday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

so they need a strong, perma-
nent support. It is a good
replacement for the highly inva-
sive pest plants Japanese hon-
eysuckle and Chinese wisteria,
which are not Florida-friendly
Preferred exposure is full
sun, but it will grow in partial
shade. Soil should be humus,
rich and fertile, well-drained,
yet somewhat moist and acidic
to slightly alkaline. Amend
sandy, well-drained flower
beds with compost and veg-
etable organic material. Coral
honeysuckle will thrive on nat-
ural rainfall, but you must
water regularly until a new
plant is established.
Flowers are bright red to
orange on selected cultivars.
The 2-inch, trumpet shaped
tubular blossoms are clustered
at the ends of stems. Flowering
is most abundant from March


to July, but there are some
flowers in all months in my gar-
den. Pull off a flower and suck
on its base to discover the
sweetness that attracts butter-
flies and hummingbirds.
Scarlet-red to orange berries,
about a quarter-inch in diame-
ter, follow flowers. Birds eat
them and spread seeds that ger-
minate readily. Young stems are
green and tender, but harden
and become woody with red-
dish, flaky bark as they age.
Individual vines on my arbor are
10 years old and still vigorous. As
a ground cover, young stems will
root and colonize a large area.
Attractive, ornamental leaves
are evergreen, one to three
inches long, opposite each
other on the stems, and oval- to
oblong-shaped with smooth
edges. When you notice a pair
of leaves joined around the
