County's water supply plan all wet


DAVE SIGLERChronlcle
Kyle Jewell, 14, fishes off the dock of the Lake Rouseau RV and Fish Camp situated on the banks of Lake Rouseau. The lake has been targeted by water man-
agement officials as a source of fresh water needed to support central Florida's growing population.


Editor's Note: The Withlacoochee Regional Water Supply Authority
has proposed that it become a full-time agency, as it was designed to
one day be, and to begin to develop water supplies on a regional basis
in .the north third of the Southwest Florida Water Management
District It has created a master plan for future water supplies that
would be developed on a cooperative basis with surrounding counties
in the coming decades to meet the water needs created by growth.

While Citrus County Commissioners
are upbeat about the region's water
supply authority beginning to take a
full-time role in planning new
regional water supplies for For r
the future, there are a few detai
reservations about some sug- poss
gested sources, wate
Commissioner Joyce sour
Valentino, for example, said pleas
she doesn't look too favorably PAI
on building reservoirs on the
Withlacoochee River or using
Lake Rousseau as a reservoir. She said
she thinks the conservation and reuse
projects in the authority's master plan
ought to come first, then a desalination
plant somewhere down the line.
All three Citrus commissioners who
sit on the Withlacoochee Regional
Water Supply Authority think desalina-

for the county. They note, however, it
will be more a more expensive source
of water.
Commissioner Dennis Damato said
he feels confident that once the scien-
tific analysis is finished and the mini-
mum flows and levels are set
iore for Citrus waters, there will be
on a better picture of what alter-
ble natives resources will be the

Architect, engineer secured for Jessie's Place


Project to cost $1.3 million, $40,000 raised

Efforts to build a place where vic-
timized children feel more at ease are
under way.
Organizers with Citrus County
Children's Advocacy Center known
as Jessie's Place have secured an
architect and engineer. They've also
raised about $40,000 of the $1.3 million
needed to build.


The Advocacy Center would be a
central location to serve children in
situations where there is an allegation
of physical abuse, neglect or sexual
abuse.
In 2005, 9-year-old Jessica "Jessie"
Lunsford was abducted from her
Homosassa Springs home in the night,
raped by a sexual offender and buried
alive. The name, Jessie's Place, was
chosen in her memory.

Dunnellon approves stormwater cleanup


Special to the Chronicle
The Southwest Florida Water
Management District and the
city of Dunnellon recently
signed an agreement for a proj-
ect to improve water quality
within the Dunnellon water-
shed.
The watershed includes
approximately 5 miles within
the city of Dunnellon.
The city's stormwater runoff
currently flows to Route 40 and


Cedar Street. The untreated
runoff flows through a stormwa-
ter collection system that dis-
charges directly into the
Withlacoochee River This proj-
ect designs and installs a hydro-
dynamic separator within the
stormwater collection system to
filter out sediment in the
stormwater before it is dis-
charged to the river.
The city will act as the lead
agency on this project, hiring all
consultants and contractors.


The project is expected to be
complete by June 2010.
The cost to complete this
project is expected to be
$150,000, which will be divided
equally between the District's
Withlacoochee River Basin
Board and the city.
This project is part of the
city's watershed management
plan, which was previously
funded by the District and the
city. The plan identifies multi-
ple projects that will reduce


flooding and improve water
quality.
A watershed management
plan is a process that identifies,
priorities and addresses water
resources issues within a water-
shed. The plan has five stages:
The collection of detailed
information such as land eleva-
tion, drainage ditches, culverts
and other features that affect
how water moves within the
watershed;
The evaluation of the col-


elected data to identify flooding
or water quality problems.
The identification of poten-
tial projects, or best manage-
ment practices, that will resolve
the water resource problems;
The implementation of best
management practices to
resolve problems;
The regular updating of
data to ensure that decisions
are being made based on the
best available information.
Stormwater is water that


flows over land during and
immediately after a rainstorm.
The Environmental Projection
Agency has identified stormwa-
ter runoffas Florida's most seri-
ous water quality problem
today. Pollutants associated
with stormwater runoff include
sediment, nutrients, heavy met-
als, oils, greases, pesticides and
bacteria. Without proper treat-
ment in developed areas, these
pollutants adversely impact the
quality of the receiving water.

Buzz on Lake Hernando brings boatloads of excitementt and fun

The bright, sunny day
Saturday at Lake Hernando
was broken by the sound of
thunder. But no one in the
crowd of several thousand
people ran for cover because
the noise came from what
they wanted: hydroplanes, or
thunderboats.
Still going on today until
about 4 p.m. is the 2008 U.S.

Hills Regatta and Family
Festival.
The first day started early
for members of the five
Rotary Clubs of Citrus County
who sponsored the now annu-

but first time on Lake
Hernando.
Cars steadily rolled into the
grassy acreage behind
Brannen Bank. "The park-
ing's better here than in
Inverness," said Rotarian Bob
Lytle, referring to when the
event took place on Lake
Henderson.
Linda Daly of Lecanto, a
member of Central Citrus
Rotary Club, was selling tick-


ets for rides and food. "It's a
beautiful day," she said. "The
kids are having a blast."
Daly's only problem: "I keep

McKean said, waving a

Local women's groups host fundraiser for CASA


Special to the Chronicle

At their national convention
in June in Chicago, the General
Federation of Women's Clubs
are expected to vote in favor of
working worldwide on the prob-
lem of women who are battered
and abused. In doing so, the
GFWC hopes to become identi-
fied worldwide for working in
this field.
Seeing a need already at the
local level, the three GFWC
clubs in Citrus County have
joined together to spearhead a
project that will benefit the new
shelter for the abused that is
under construction here.
It is the first time the Beverly
Hills, Crystal River and


Inverness federated clubs have
worked together in a fund-rais-
ing project
."We hope to fill Curtis
Peterson Auditorium on
Saturday, May 3," said Sandra
Koonce, president of the
Inverness Woman's Club.
The event, she said, will be an
afternoon of musical entertain-
ment that will appeal to all ages.
A number of door prizes will be
given away, as well as a weekend
at Cocoa Beach.
The idea for the event was
triggered, Koonce said, after the
Inverness club heard a presen-
tation last fall from Diana
McIntosh, executive director of
the Citrus County Abused
Shelter Association (CASA).


TICKET INFORMATION
Tickets to the show are
$15 each in advance and
$20 at the door.

McIntosh mentioned the stag-
gering figures of abuse, particu-
larly for women, both nationally
and locally. She also explained
the new shelter is being built
locally and will house more vic-
tims of abuse as well as provide
a safer haven than the one cur-
rently available.

Lake Rouseau has been targeted by water management officials as a source of fresh water needed
to support central Florida's growing population.


with adjoining counties in
future cooperative projects,
water officials say.
Under the same logic of
regional water supply devel-
opment that has spared
Citrus from Tampa Bay, the
county will find itself com-
pelled to share with
Hernando, Sumter and maybe
Marion counties in regional
development projects for
alternative sources.
In one sense that's good,
because developing alterna-
tive water supplies is very,
very expensive. Citrus will
get water that citizens and
businesses can afford, offi-
cials say, though they add it
won't be as cheap as today's
water.


In another sense, though,
the diehards for keeping
water from being taken out of
the county will have to recon-
cile their protective attitudes
with conditions that are
prompting water planners to
put the regional water supply
authority into a full-time
water-developing mode.
Going it alone, as counties
have done up to now in the
north end of the water district
,will be a thing of the past.
The Southwest Florida Water
Management District govern-
ing board has said it is mak-
ing regional projects the pri-
ority for its funding. The dis-
trict has money to build
expensive projects because it
has the power to levy proper-


ty taxes to pay for water proj-
ects.
Local governments are
strained just to provide infra-
structure and services.
Unable to get more ground-
water withdrawal permits
because of the impact of those
withdrawals, they will find
themselves with little option
but to take part in regional
supply development.
One Citrus official was
recently heard to mutter
something about it being like
a form of blackmail, but in
any case, for Citrus at least, it
means a bit of a paradigm
shift.
Citrus County
Commissioners who sit on the
Withlacoochee Regional


Water Supply Authority
appear to have accepted the
need to begin to start plan-
ning for alternative sources
now, though they emphasize
that desalination, not with-
drawal from surface waters,
is the way they want to see
alternative
supplies devel- cal g
oped. Local gov
Until recent-
ly, water dis- are strain
trict officials provide
said the north-
ern part of the other infra
district had
water supplies and se
sufficient for at
least the next
20 years, but now they are say-
ing because of growth and
new limits on groundwater
withdrawals coming the
water authority needs to start
planning now.
Driving the need to change
are two things: growth and
the setting of minimum flows
and levels for the aquifer and
all the region's rivers, lakes
and springs.
It turns out that the whole
of Citrus County is a spring
shed for the coastal springs.
What is taken from surface
and underground water
resources inland has an effect
on those springs.
Minimum flows and levels
are the levels at which fur-
ther withdrawal begins to
damage the environment and
the resource. The legislature
mandated they be set and
those numbers will be set for
Citrus in the next few years.
Already though, in a grow-
ing region defined by what
can be a very pronounced
wet-and-dry cycle, including
periodic droughts, the tradi-
tional source of water for the
region, the aquifer, begins to
look less and less abundant as
the minimum flows and levels
are being prepared, officials

The Withlacoochee
Regional Water Supply
District, fairly inactive until
now, save one wellfield in
Citrus that serves Citrus, is
the agency that is designed to
develop water supplies in this
region.
Its part-time
ernments director sug-
ed just to gests it go full-
ed jus Ito time and begin
all the the business of
planning for
structure future alterna-
tive supplies, a
rvices. process that
can take a
decade for ini-
tial projects to come online.
Executive Director Jack
Sullivan is suggesting the
water district fund the start-
up with $400,000 for five
years, and then the authority
would have to be self-suffi-
cient after that. It is now sup-
ported by about $140,000
annually through a 20 cent
per capital fee for each county
member of the authority.
After the five-years start up,
Sullivan projects the per
capital would need to be 25
cents for the authority to be
self-sufficient.
Authority members, made
up of county commissioners
and city councilmen, say
because of the economic situ-
ation, this year isn't the year
to start increasing the charge,
though. Citrus County
Commissioner Dennis
Damato put it in perspective,
however, noting that the coun-
ties pay 40 cents per capital
for membership in the
Withalcoochee Regional
Planning Council.
The governing board of the
water district is expected to
indicate in the next few
months whether it will begin
to fund the start up of full-
time authority.

Jack Sullivan, the authority's

he has retired from his consult-

never was involved in nor
advised The Villages on water
matters.


Sawyer said he would be
against sending river water to
The Villages, but that could hap-
pen, however, as regional devel-
opment means sharing between
the member counties, and as
more than one official has point-
ed out, counties don't own the

Second, the other counties in

As for how alternative source
sare developed, Moore said he
thinks there will be some
groundwater still available in
Citrus and Sumter counties
after minimum levels of the
aquifer are determined and
that will probably be one of the
initial new sources developed
through some dispersed well-
fields that minimize draw-

sized that the possible alterna-

it's typical to lay out all feasible
alternatives before picking the


most feasible and desir-
able one. Because it
takes so long to develop
new sources from start
to finish, planning has to
begin way ahead, he
said.
Damato agreed with

For him, desalination is the
way to go, and the authority and

efit of all the lessons Tampa

The final reality is, he said,
Citrus County will continue
growing, and to think that won't
happen or use water as a tool to
try to stop it would be misguid-
ed, he said. Granted, the cost of
new water supplies will be
enormous, he said, but to those
who oppose regional, coopera-

"What's the alternative?"
Bartell said the answer is the
county doesn't have another

together it will be affordable,
he said. "I want to be proac-

S Thank You -
There are not enough words to describe
'e- our feelings of gratitude to the many,
many friends who gave so much to my
family and me both during Karen's six-
month baffttle with cancer, and after her
k untimely passing on February 12fh.
S Although Valentine's Day will forever hold
a sense of sorrow, loss and emptiness for us,
remembering the outpouring of love from all of our many
friends will help ease the pain in the years to come.
I have always known Citrus County to be a special place, but
until Karen's illness I never truly knew how blessed
we were to be a part of such a wonderful
community. There are so many of you that
deserve our profound and heartfelt thanks, I
chose this way to say thank you, thank you, thank
you. You will never know how touched we are by
your kindness, generosity and love.

of any other clients in situations similar to Citrus County School District officials,

hundreds of school districts,
and there "may or may not" be
other clients who didn't
receive rebate checks. He also
said the funds are available to
pay back those missing checks.
In the past few days, two for-
mer ERC employees spoke
about the corporation's finan-
cial turmoil and said
Slaughter knew about the
unusually large deposits into
the account. Slaughter told the
employees he received the
checks because he cashed in
his 401K, sold stock and
received payment from the
communications corporation
IBM, they said.

she handed Slaughter the
deposit stamp for what she
later determined was a check
for Citrus County School
District; Slaughter came back
to the office with the deposit
slip in his hand, she said.


Before she was fired,
Ferguson discovered and
questioned Slaughter about "a
number of large deposits that
were very questionable" in
the corporation's bank
account, that matched clients'
funding request numbers, includ-
ing Citrus County's, and amounts
of checks they never received
that they were calling about,
she said.
Barry Wilson, former ERC
account executive, said nearly
all the corporation's employ-
ees have. quit or been let go in
the last month and a half in
order to disassociate with
Slaughter and the company to
save their reputations.

ow. Recently she
was working on
a case involving
a child who had been sexually
assaulted. Bowermaster first
took the child to a local emer-
gency room for a basic exam.


From there, Bowermaster and
the child waited for six hours
for schedules to be arranged
so that the child could have a
forensic gynecological exam
- a service unavailable at
Citrus County's two hospitals.
By about midnight, they left
for the child advocacy center
in Ocala.
"If we would have had a
child advocacy center in
Citrus County, the child would
have been home by that
evening. It tripled the amount
of time and trauma the child
went through," Bowermaster
said.
The child must also contin-
ue through the process over
the next few weeks for coun-
seling at one place and inter-
views with the State Attorney's
Office at another.
"We're already doing this
job," Bowermaster said. "This
will help us do it better."
In 2006, the sheriff's office
investigated 1,097 child abuse
cases and 189 sexual abuse
cases. Not all were founded,


but all went through the inves-i
tigative process with the child
being bounced to emergency
rooms, interviews at the sher-
iff's office and to advocacy
centers outside the county.
The figures also do not
include cases handled by the
Department of Children and
Families.
The Citrus County School
Board has offered land near'
Rock Crusher Elementary'
School in Crystal River for the
not-for-profit Jessie's Place.
While plans for Jessie's
Place are still being finalized,
Dawsy estimates they'll need
to raise about $1.3 million.'
Already businesses and organ-
izations have agreed to donate
labor and some materials.
He figures a groundbreak-
ing for Jessie's Place is about a
year away.
After the advocacy center is
built, the Jessie's Place board
will organize an annual
fundraiser to fund an execu-
tive director and secretary
position. The rest of the staff's
salaries would be paid for by
the agencies using the facility,
such as the sheriff's office,
Kids Central, The Centers and
the Department of Children
and Families.

Participants

sought for 2008
hearing aid
field study
For the second consecutive
year my audiology clinics have
received a financial grant to per-
form a landmark field study on a
new hearing aid model. The all
new Evok is a small compact
hearing aid that leaves the ear
open to natural sound and deliv-
ers understandable quality in
noisy situations.
In exchange for completing a
pre- and post-fitting question-
naire participants will earn free
use of this hearing aid for 30
days. My college degree audi-
ologists will provide all exams
and lab services free of charge
through a generous research grant
from Magnatone.
At the end of this thirty day
trial, participants will return the
aids or purchase them with a gen-
erous field study discount.

SHADES
OF GRAY

Stop, smell

blossoms,

go to events
E n route to Sarasota to
visit Mom last Easter
weekend, the olfactory
forces grabbed a hold of me.
Possessed by the aroma of
orange blossoms, my truck
veered off the road and came
to a rapid halt at a citrus grove
near Brooksville.
For me, there's no smell that
triggers my mental way-back
machine the way orange blos-
soms do. One whiff and my
mind leaps to 1977-78 when I
was gainfully employed at
Cady's Grove, Clark Road,
Sarasota.
Working there was one of the
greatest experiences of my
life. The sensory system that
brings back memories of those
good days in the warehouse,
storefront and especially out
in the groves on the old blue
Ford tractor never ceases to
amaze me.
There's no need to have
worked on a citrus grove to
enjoy Florida's greatest
aroma. Sometime soon, hop in
your car, turn the AC off and
roll down the windows. Travel
to one of the local or regional
citrus groves. Some of the tasti-
est oranges grown in Florida
.are ripe right now and they
won't be around for too much
longer. Same for the blossoms.

it takes to succeed at the job -
which includes both professional
and personal skills.
In selecting five THE I1
finalists from a list
of 28 applicants this County adi
past week, select
Commissioner John
Thrumston made a OUR 0P
doozy of a state- Find th
ment: "There were bala
three really quali-
fied candidates. The rest were
just tokens."
An interpretation of his ill-
phrased observation is that, in
striving to fill the position quick-
ly, the commission did not attract
numerous qualified applicants.
With rapid turnover in the
administrator position in recent
years, it's no wonder the talent
pool is shallow.
The finalists are:
Jack Benson, communica-
tions center manager of Summit
County, Colo.
Frank Clifton Jr., county
manager of Onslow County, N.C.
Anthony Schembri, former
secretary of the Florida
Department of Juvenile Justice.
Tad Stone, former Citrus
County public safety director.
Brad Thorpe, Citrus County
director of community services
and interim county administra-
tor
Each of these individuals has
far more to their resume than
noted above, yet one wonders if
we're failing to court the most
qualified, experienced munici-


Fas owing grass Q
Today, March 21, second W
day of spring. I got my old
lawnmower to start, so I
go out in my yard and,
well gee, the grass didn't
really grow. A lot of leaves

flowers in my yard, which I CAL..

to cut her yard and there's
some weeds growing
there. I come to their front yard,
which is more grass, and nothing to
cut. It wasn't high enough for my
lawnmower. So why have all these
neighbors of mine been cutting
grass for the last 10 days? What
kind of grass do they have?
It's the owner
This is in response to the person
who wrote that pit bulls should be
banned in the state of Florida. I
think that's ridiculous. It's not the
dog; it's the owners. Most people, if
they treat their dogs well, have nice
dogs. It's people who teach their
dogs to be bad dogs who should be
punished when dogs attack people.
Political difference
As I read the "Shout out," I get
irritated at the (people) who com-
plain about the 4,000 dead men
and women who are called "boys"
in a five-year-old war. Some weeks
ago the Chronicle reported on a
study that showed that over a six-
year period, 10,000 teenagers died
in this country from driving acci-
dents. Where's your outrage about


pal managers.
To succeed in the job, an indi-
vidual must steer clear of the
personal politics on the board.
They must comfortably deflect
attempts of commissioners to
micromanage the business of the
county while emphasizing their
willingness to

tion. They must treat
all five commission-
INION: ers equally and be
e right open to all. Former
nce. administrator June
Fisher was seen as
being closely aligned with
Commissioners Vicki Phillips
and Joyce Valentino; former
administrator Richard Wesch
was seen as being closely aligned
with then-Commissioners Jim
Fowler and Josh Wooten; and the
interim administrator between
Wesch and Fisher Tom Dick -
was viewed as being aligned with
Wesch and crew, which didn't
make him popular in some cir-
cles.
With the turnover in the
administrator's post and a board
of commissioners that has strug-
gled to work together for the
common good of all, the county
seems rudderless. There are
major issues needing to be
addressed that will affect our
quality of life for decades to
come. Selecting an administra-
tor who can help bridge the divi-
sions among commissioners,
keep them on track with the
most pressing concerns, and
offer county employees clear
direction is essential if the coun-
ty is to set a successful course for
our future.

j' this? It would be far easier
for us to control these
killings at home than with
an armed enemy on the
other side of the world. I
guess the difference is,
one is political and the
other is not.
ar NRA doesn't care
S579 I've been a gun owner
MU about all my life and I'm
retired now and I know
how to use the guns. I've
got many types, but there's one
thing I never could face and that's
joining the NRA (National Rifle
Association), who don't seem to
care about the massacres that go
on in this country every year from
assault guns. They would even have
bazookas if they could get them,
and maybe some of them do. But
this is a rejection of the NRA, who
don't care about this country. I do.
Sick joke?
Five million dollars to improve the
Inverness Airport? This must be some
kind of a sick joke. The whole com-
plex land, buildings and all of the
little airplanes there aren't worth
$5 million. If this is true, it's an
example of government gone crazy.
Keep the coupons
The (Internet company) AOL
wants to do away with the coupons
in the newspapers. The poor can't
afford computers to go on the
Internet, so they buy the newspaper
to clip coupons. Don't tell me AOL
wants to punish the poor to make
the rich richer.

LETTERS j to the Editor


Tokens are for subways
To: Commissioner John Thrumston.
I read the article in today's Chronicle
concerning the field of 28 applicants for
the vacant county administrator posi-
tion with interest It is apparent that
you have your personal favorites and I
can't fault you for that
I'm quite sure each of the other four
commissioners has their own favorites
and after the proper interview process
takes place, a new administrator will
assume command. Hopefully, the best
qualified candidate will be selected.
I do have a problem with your poor
choice of words when you were quoted
as saying that there were three really
qualified candidates and the remain-
ing 25 applicants were just "tokens."
I'm sure the other 25 candidates had
their feelings hurt when they read that
article. I applaud them all for applying
for the position and so should you.
No citizen of Citrus County is a
token we're all human beings. We
all do our best each and every day to
do the right thing. My gut feeling is
that the other field of 25 felt that some-
thing is wrong in the way the county is
governed and they stepped up to the
plate and decided to try their luck at
managing a growing county
Before writing this letter I took the
time to read your biography and the
biographies of the rest of the commis-
sioners. I must say that the biogra-
phies I read were average in every
way; truth be told, there probably was
more talent in the pool of 25 "tokens"
than in the current roster of county
commissioners.
In the future, if you want to remain
in office, kindly remember that you
rarely ever get a second chance to
make a favorable first impression.
Choose your words carefully and if you

Right to self-defense
Your March 20 editorial, "One-size-
fits-all bill hits private property
rights" is misleading and inaccurate.
Everyone keeps calling this the guns-
to-work bill. The fact is, as has been
pointed out by Rep. Stan Mayfield,
this is the guns-locked-up-in-your-car
bill that protects my right to have a
firearm locked in my vehicle for self-
defense and other lawful purposes


when it is parked in a public-access
business parking lot.
The bill never has been a "guns-to-
work" bill. That is a phrase made up
by anti-gun opponents of the bill, to
mislead people and legislators. The
bill does not allow any guns to be
brought to work It allows guns to be
locked within a citizen's private vehi-
cle, regardless of where it is parked.
The parking lot owner, by allowing
public use of his property for parking,
has given up some of his property
rights. Once he allows public access,
he has no more right to dictate that a
person may not have a weapon stored
in a vehicle parked there, any more
than he could deny him the right to
have a Bible in his car. By banning
the storage of a weapon inside a
locked car in the parking lot, he in
effect is taking away the drivers'
Second Amendment right
My right to keep and bear arms,
which is really my right to self-
defense, is of utmost importance to
me. It is a proven fact from the pub-
licly available data that the ability of
ordinary citizens to be armed has
reduced crime and enhanced person-
al safety in Florida, and failure to
enact this protection of our Second
Amendment right will erode that
record. Finally, the idea of someone
being able to search a private vehicle
without probable cause sounds to me
like someplace other than America.
I urge Sen. Charlie Dean to support
this bill. If he continues to oppose it,
he is most certainly not an "avid sup-
porter of the Second Amendment,"
and I and other NRA members will
remember his vote when his next
election day comes around.

The dollars and sense of ~


protecting our wetlands

RON MILLER
Special to the Chronicle

When we discuss the cost of
protecting our waters, let's use
honest numbers.
As reported in the Chronicle,
the Florida Department of
Community Affairs says our
Springs Protection Plan does-
n't go far enough. Good for the
: DCA. The agency is challeng-
ing us to seize the moment and
enact a development code that
will be significant in protecting
our waters.
So far, county commissioners
have flinched in the face of a
barrage of exaggerations about
the cost of high-performance
septic systems that will reduce
the nitrogen discharged into
the aquifer.
Our springs and waterways
are great assets providing
recreational and economic
value to all. But they are sick
and getting sicker. A major-
problem common to all our
waters is the high level of
nitrates. Nitrates play a large
role in the overproduction of
algae and water weeds, which
in turn kill desirable aquatic
plants, aquatic life, bird habi-
tat and the recreational value
of the waters.
We now harvest the algae
and weeds. Some are suggest-
ing. chemical treatments.
j. _These expedient half meas-
ures just. procrastinate getting
after the source of the prob-
lem. If we keep dumping
nitrates into the waters, we will
keep getting the same results.
Septic systems are a major
source of the nitrates in our
water Citrus County has more
than 20,000 septic systems and is
adding more than 1,000 each
year. Each system discharges
from 25 to 44 pounds per year of
nitrates. Do the math and that is
an incredible 250 to 440 tons per
year of nitrates being dumped
into the aquifer Think about that
a ton a day and increasing!
Performance-based septic
systems attack this problem.
Notable features of the perform-
ance-based system are the mul-
tiple chambers where the efflu-


ent goes through various stages
of treatment Two such systems
are being used in Wakulla
County. These systems have
been qualified and certified for
the state by the National
Sanitation Foundation. We don't
have to reinvent them. People
who are installing these systems
in Wakulla County state that the
cost is from $3,000 to $5,000
more than the standard system.

Our springs and
Waterways are
great assets
providing
recreational and
economic value to
all. But they are
sick and getting
sicker.

We have been misled on the
costs by developers and by
Commissioner Dennis Damato.
At a county commission meet-
ing in November, Damato stat-
ed that such a system costs
$16,700 more than a standard
system. That number has been
famously repeated but it is
wrong. Alas, it has taken roots
and grows and grows and has
now grown to over $20,000.
Commissioner Damato pre-
sented a range for costs of per-
mits, soil analysis, sizing the
system, mounds, sod, electrical
tie-in and a tank related to
installing a waterfront septic
system. When added up, the
low and high range of these
things totaled out at $11,500 to
$13,050 respectively.
It is important to understand
that the argument is not about
the total cost of a septic system.
Everyone must have either a
septic system or be tied to a
sewer. If you need a septic sys-
tem, it must be properly ana-
lyzed and sized and a mound
and sod may be needed. The
argument is not about those
costs which apply to all sys-


teams. Rather, the real argument
is about the incremental cost of
requiring the better septic sys-
tem. Except for the price of the
tank and the electrical tie-in, all
Damato's numbers apply to
both the standard and perform-
ance-based septic systems. A
performance-based tank costs
about twice what the standard
tank costs and needs an electri-
cal tie-in. By Damato's num-
bers, this results in an incre-
mental difference of in the
range of $3,750. And this agrees
with the Wakulla testimony!
If you are interested in
checking out Commissioner
Damato's list and numbers, go
to the county web site
(www.bocc.citrus.fl.us/), where
his statements are recorded on
the Board Minutes of Nov 20,
2007, at 4:27 p.m.
So far the commissioners
have decided to "prefer" good
septic designs. They have
decided to be undecided. They
have resolved to resolve noth-
ing. As a result today we will
dump another ton of nitrates
into the aquifer as if it were an
open sewer. Tomorrow we will
dump a slightly larger amount
And our sick waters will get a
little sicker.
Al Grubman, chairman of Too
Far, is right on when he states:
"Where sewers are not avail-
able, we beg the commissioners
to require high-performance.
septic systems. It will take
decades to clean out our under-
ground water systems. Let's get
started. Adding $3,000 to $5,000
to the cost of a septic system is a
small price to save our water,
our environment and our
future. A rebate may be appro-
priate for hardship cases."
The DCA is also right to
reject the commissioners' reso-
lution and to give us another
chance to look at the honest
costs and take a meaningful
step in the direction of protect-
ing our water.

Hot Corner: SCHOOL MONEY


Wake up
This is March 27 and here I
am reading that the school dis-
trict (is) owed $678,288. You
know, I knew that this county
had a bunch of really incompe-
-tent people running it ... I think
we need a clean sweep.
Actually losing that kind of
money and not even knowing it
until the whistleblower blows
the horn? Come on. Come on,
people let's wake up, huh?
Asleep at the wheel
Wow, our school district is
owed almost $700,000 and
they never even knew it? That
goes directly to incompetency.
Our county officials are asleep
at the Wheel. Listen, in a small'
town up North there was an
accountant for the board of
education who embezzled over


$4 million a few years back. He
took off and they never found
him, nor the money. And this
happened even while there was
more checks and balances in
place than what we obviously
have here ......
So as far as I'm concerned,
this is just the tip of the ice-
berg: Who knows what else is
missing. To displace this kind
of money is ludicrous. I'm sure
there is more neglect and
abuse than what they want us
to know. Do not complacently
allow these politicians to fur-
ther increase taxes in order to
bridge these gaps. In the real
world, such incompetency and
inefficiency will get them fired,
but not here. Here we give
them raises instead. We need
to put a stop to this and be
reassured that this will never
happen again. We should


demand that this county's
finances get audited in depth.
Overly paid
In this morning's Chronicle,
Thursday, March 27, headlines:
"School district owed
$678,288," "Officials failed to
monitor funds." An excellent
article by Keri Lynn McHale.
This is another good reason
why school board members are
overly paid $30,000-some, to
find things like this that were
actually problems for the
school district because they
have double-dipping. They have
other jobs, but yet they're on
the school board being paid '
large amounts of money. We
have enough retired educators
in this county who would'gladly
run for the school board with-
out pay and help to administer
all the rules and regulations.


Hot Corner: PRISON PIZZA


Recheck privileges
I'm reading today's paper,
Friday, March 21, in the Sound
Off section, "Pizza privileges."
The editor's note at the bottom
says that jail staff orders pizza
for themselves, not the
inmates, who have no pizza
privileges. That is completely
not true. The inmates at the
Citrus County Jail do get piz-
zas. They do have pizza and
movie nights there. So you
need to recheck that because,
yes, they do get pizza over
there.


IInnmates pay
This is a message about the
pizza delivery at the prison.
No, the citizens of Citrus
County do not pay for the
pizza. The inmates pay for the
pizza. They have a contest to
see who can keep their pods
the cleanest and that's who
gets to order the pizzas. My
son was in jail and I paid $5
every time he wanted a pizza.
It did not come out of anybody
else's pocket but my son's or
mine.
Juveniles, too
I was reading in the Sound
Off about pizza privileges. It
said that they found out that
the Citrus County Jail inmates
were getting pizza and they get


movies. Then you have the edi-
tor's note that the jail staff
order pizzas for themselves,
not the inmates, who have no
pizza privileges. Not only do
they get pizza privileges in the
jail, they also get pizza privi-
leges at Cypress Creek Juvenile
Detention Center. Not only in
the past two years have I
worked for the pizza place that
provides the pizzas for the
inmates and Cypress Creek
Juvenile Detention facility, I
also used to work at the
Cypress Creek Juvenile
Detention facility itself. So
there needs to be some sort of
rebuttal on these pizza privi-
leges, because your editor's
note is not correct.
Personal accounts
I happen to know from per-
sonal experience that pizza is
ordered and delivered to the
county jail. Inmates with
enough money in their person-
al accounts are able to put in
requisitions for pizza. If they
have enough money, it is
ordered and delivered.
Absolutely nothing
There was an item on March
21 in Sound Off that says
"Pizza privileges." It says that
the Citrus County Jail gets
pizza and movies. Let me tell


you something, people: The
Citrus County Jail ... there is no
pizza, there are no movies,
there are no televisions, there
is no radio, there is absolutely
nothing ... at that jail. I spent
one year there and I know what
I'm speaking of.
Editor's note: According to
Julia Swart, Citrus County
Detention Facility public informa-
tion officer, "The purpose of
pizza is to raise money for chari-
ty." She said inmates gain the
privilege of ordering pizza
through a program at the jail,
and it is handled through jail
staff. The pizza program raises
about $5,000 annually that is
disbursed among charities as a
way to give back to the commu-
nity. Swart also says there are no
movies. For several years, and
with the approval of Citrus
County government, inmates
have been allowed to order pizza
with one provider that has an
agreement with the facility.
Families and friends donate
money to an inmate's canteen
account that can be used for toi-
letries, food and certain other
personal items during their
detention. With pizza, but not the
other expenditures, a certain
amount of the proceeds is donat-
ed to charities, the main one
being the American Cancer
Society.


LETTERS 1 to the Editor


Cuts will not heal
It saddens me to think that servic-
es for Florida's most vulnerable and
needy people would suffer painful
budget cuts as proposed by our leg-
islators in their current delibera-
tions at our State Capitol.
From vital pre-natal care to nurs-
ing home services for our most frail
elders, legislative leaders are seri-
ously negotiating drastic budget
reductions at a time when many
families are desperately trying to
get by economically and emotionally
Among the targeted cuts are
Healthy Families, a successful child
abuse prevention program which
assists parents with skills they need
to keep children safe and out of
harm's way A government that has
the power to punish has the obliga-
tion to prevent, especially when


some 98 percent of families served
are successfully taking responsibili-
ty for their children's well-being.
Another critical cut being pro-
posed is a set of independent living
services for foster youths and run-
away teens who are entering young
adulthood. Without supportive fami-
lies, these youths are at-risk of a
range of horrible circumstances,
including homelessness and preda-
tory violence. Florida needs to
invest in success rather than pay
the costs of failure for these youth
who are vulnerable through no fault
of their own.
Florida's legislative leaders have
many difficult decisions to make in
the weeks ahead, but taking the
step to eliminate or curtain life-sav-
ing care for those at the dawn or
dusk of their lives is neither wise


nor moral.
Who among us would turn away
from the cries of children in pain or
the pleas of a hurting elder in
need? In our name, our lawmakers
are about to do just that unless we
act to tell them what's in our hearts
and on our minds at this important
time in the legislative debate.
Floridians may visit for access to
the names and contact numbers for
our State Representatives and
Senators.
Cuts to vulnerable children,
needy youths and frail elders will
not heal. Please voice your con-
cerns and give our elected leaders
the message that we are smarter
than this and better than this.

'No knock' clarified
(This is) to answer C.L. Vance's let-
ter of March 23, where he or she
states that people who don't know
anything about how a real investiga-
tion should be handled should stay in
their homes.
After spending the past nine years
prior to retirement from the Collier
County Sheriff's Office as an investi-
gator, I feel I should advise Mr. or Ms.
Vance what "no knock" means. It
concerns a search warrant issued by
a judge that specifies entering with-
out announcing. It has nothing to do
with randomly looking for a lost
child. And in the case of Jessica,
there was no probable cause to enter
into anyone's home, much less every
home in the area.
If the sheriff's deputies began
entering any of the homes warrant-


less, there would have been lawsuits
galore as every entry would have
been illegal. Perhaps Mr. or Ms.
Vance should research his or her
statements prior to making them.
Try putting the blame in the right
direction and also tell me what Mark
(Lunsford) is doing that should have
been done a long time ago. The sher-
iff and his deputies did everything
possible to prevent the tragic ending,
with the end result having the perpe-
trator arrested and incarcerated.
You can also tell me what laws
need to be changed that would have
prevented this incident Maybe we
can throw out all the liberal bleeding
hearts who allow people like (John)
Couey to get out of jail. Please stop
politicking and read a dictionary.

on600,000 reasons or deanl war on terrorism


600,000 reasons for declaring war on terrorism


Remember the 600,000
documents and the
many videos retrieved
from Saddam's government
files after the 2003 invasion?
About 15 percent have been
translated, and the results
were recently reported by the
Pentagon. The documents pro-
vide the definitive information
about Saddam's dealings with
terrorism, weapons of mass
destruction and even al-Qaida.
Apparently neither The
Associated Press nor Reuters
news services thought it worth
printing. Were it not for the
editorial staff of the Wall
Street Journal and the leftist
blog Media Matters, I would
not have known the data was
available. It is published as
the "Iraqi Perspectives
Project" (Google it if you have
some time) and runs 94 pages.
The key points are in the


Executive Sum-
mary.
Staff found no
"smoking gun" in
the sense that
Saddam in any way
directed or con-
trolled al-Qaida,
particularly as
regards the Sept. 11
attack (Nor has the Dr. W
current administra- DiJ
tion ever said that OTH
such a relationship VOI
existed. Colin
Powell alleged a
"nexus" to terrorism.) What
the documents show clearly is
that Saddam and the Iraqi
Intelligence Service (ISS)
made arrangements to use ter-
rorism and the weapons of ter-
rorists:
"Documents indicate that
the regime's use of terrorism
was standard practice ---:.


vi
ix
H
(


From 1991 to 2003
the Saddam regime
regarded inspiring,
sponsoring, direct-
ing, and executing
acts of terrorism as
an element of state
power"
Further docu-
mented are the
illiam groups of state and
xon international ter-
HER rorists with whom
CES Saddam had work-
ing and supporting
relationships. These
included Islamic jihadist
groups despite the fact that
the Iraqi regime was secular
The Iraqis were willing to
finance and assist these
groups in their efforts to strike
Westerners and particularly
Americans. The Islamic
groups accepted support and
training from the Iraqis


despite their distaste for the
regime. Meetings between the
ISS and al-Qaida representa-
tives are documented as to
time and place.
A segment of CBS "60
Minutes" aired in January and
reported by the WSJ puts the
Saddam/terrorist relationship
in perspective. The FBI inter-
rogator, George Piro, who
debriefed Saddam, stated that
he maintained the pretext of
having WMD's right up until
the time Baghdad fell, to keep
Iran at bay. Saddam stated
that he had the necessary peo-
ple in place and that he
intended to rebuild all of his
weapons of mass destruction
as soon as the sanctions were
lifted. The sanctions had
begun to crumble in 2000. It is
very possible that by 2004, the
Iraqis would have been able to
manufacture chemical and


biological weapons had the
regime not been taken down.
We can only speculate now
whether Saddam would have
passed on his weapons to the
terrorist groups he supported
to be used against the hated
Americans. After Sept. 11, see-
ing how effective al-Qaida had
been in planning and carrying
out the attacks on the
American homeland, would it
not have been tempting to slip
them a little nerve gas or
anthrax, sit back and watch
the results?
What would you have want-
ed our president to do? Do you
believe it would have been
better to wait on the next
attack on America, try to fig-
ure out who was responsible
and then, what? Attack Iraq?
Iran? Libya, perhaps? As you
know, I believe the president
made the only decision he


could, given his responsibility
to protect the nation.
Good Americans can cer-
tainly disagree about what
.should have been done. But
once a democratically elected
American president, on the
basis of recommendations
from his staff and supported
by a congressional vote, makes
a decision to go to war, patriot-
ic Americans ought to support
it.

Update wanted
I was really touched by the
story you had of that little 5-
year-old boy from Tampa who
was suffering from cancer and
all he wanted to do was go to
school with his brother. Do you
have any further developments
of his condition? I would really
like to know.
Questioning evolution
To all you people teaching
evolution: We do teach our chil-
dreniabout God at home and ini
church, but it is hard to do
when the school is teaching the
(theory) of evolution. It would
be easier to believe if you find
a Rolex watch on the ground
and you think it evolved by
itself over thousands of years.
God created the Earth and
man in six days.
Law still stands
You've got a letter writer on
March 24 that (states) House
Democrats let the old FISA Law
expire and went home. They
didn't let the old FISA Law
expire. It's still in effect. What
they let expire was a bill that
contained immunity for the
telecom companies. The FISA
Law passed in the 1970s. It's
still in effect. Therefore, we're
not in any more danger from
terrorists than we were before.
Evolution continues
Comments on evolution by
M.K. Pritchett were a real

Developing Three Sisters

the very beginning.
There are some places on
this Earth that are so naturally

breath of fresh air. So many
recent comments on this sub-
ject have been very shallow, as
if evolution were an unproven
atheistic theory. Where have
these people been?
The'universe, in all its
majesty, is still evolv- c 01
ing. Different life W
forms on Earth have
evolved for millions of
years. This is not a
theory. Fossil records
prove it.
To force the teach-
ing of medieval cre-, cA
ation myths into a sci- 56
ence curriculum is as 563
absurd as teaching
that the Earth is flat.
God's role in evolution belongs
in the domain of religion and
philosophy. Why is it so difficult
for religious people to accept
the sheer grandeur of God's
handiwork?
Uncaring leader
Vice President Dick Cheney
- how about his answer over
these past couple of days
about the 4,000 soldiers and
sailors killed over in Iraq and
Afghanistan? He gave a big
answer: "So?" And here's a guy
who, during the '60s, did
everything to avoid military
service. And he's vice president
of the United States because
he's got money. And now he
just doesn't care about our
men and women being killed
over there.

Three Sisters during the last
20 years, but they've all failed
because of a lack of cohesive
leadership. The problem is
that each time an effort fails,
the price tag grows larger.
Today that price tag is more
than $15 million.
It was not until Crystal River
City Manager Andy Houston
stepped up the plate and asked
the city council to take the
leadership role that this latest
effort began to gain momen-
tum. The city council unani-
mously agreed to take on the
top-dog role in securing funds
to purchase Three Sisters
Springs from the private devel-
oper.
The Friends of the
Chassahowitzka, led by volun-
teer president Lace Blue-
McLean and Refuge Manager
Jim Kraus, has taken the lead-
ership role in seeking a state
grant in excess of $6.6 million
to purchase the property.

more than the boat races

only a couple of bucks to get

No, thanks
Remember when President
Reagan was shot? Well, right
after that, he turned his NRA
membership in. He didn't want
no more to do with it.
Does it take a nuclear
scientist to figure out
why?
Unused parking
I would just like to
know why the county
commissioners have
their reserved parking
places down by the
0579 courthouse when they
don't use them. Then
they park in front of
the courthouse and we have to
walk all the way to find a park-
ing place, and we can't use
theirs because of their name
being there. So if they're not
going to use them, why don't
they take those signs down so
other people can have a place
to park?
Farmer's market
I am so happy to read in the
paper this week that they are
going to discuss having a
farmer's market in Inverness. I
think in this area, I think it
would be just so greatly appre-
ciated. I am so looking forward
to shopping there, hoping to
find new fresh and different
vegetables and goods. Thank
you so much. I hope it really
works.


Amazing tribute
Since the tragic death of our
girls, Melissa Hess and Molly
Paquin, the outpouring of
community support has been
remarkable.
One of the bright spots in a
very.difficult year has been
the heartfelt creation of the
safe-driving mosaic at the
girls' alma mater, Citrus High
School.
The 6-foot by 4-foot tile
mosaic was the brainchild of
CHS art teacher Karol
Kusmaul and some of her stu-
dents.
Kusmaul and many of her
students felt the need to do
something to help work
through their feelings of loss
after the girls were killed last
May in a horrific car crash. A
lot of effort has been given by
leaders in our community as
members of the Citrus County
Teen Driving Task Force and
the safe driving message "With
Privilege Comes
Responsibility" helps our
efforts in educating teens.
This is not only a tribute to
Melissa and Molly, but Ian
Morrill, who was also killed in
a car accident Morrill gradu-
ated from CHS in 2004.
Designed by student Justine
Fox, the beautiful mosaic is
displayed in the student park-
ing area and serves as a daily
reminder of the dangers of
driving at a young age.
We wish to thank the busi-
nesses, students and friends of
the girls who helped with the
after-school project
Materials were donated by
Pro-Line Tile of Citrus County,
Mid-State Glass, Tile
Contractors Supply Co. and
Don Smith, owner of
Affordable Tile Designs.
Smith not only helped by
donating equipment for the
project, he donated numerous
hours of his time and talents.
He also built the frame for the
mosaic and installed it at the
school. This project would not
have been possible without
the generosity of Smith, as
well as these businesses.
We are also extremely grate-
ful to the students and friends

significant act the county

Half truths
Evolution seems to be a hot
topic for today's students.
Progression from a simple
form to a more complex one,
whether you're looking at
development, growth, progress,
or an unfolding, has been
around since God created the
Earth.
A good example of evolution-
ary half-truths is
Americanisms. It is indis-
putable that Siberians migrat-
ed from Alaska to North and
South America and by A.D.
1400 many occupied America,
making them first explorers
and settlers to a new world.
Along with 1492 came
European development, who
claim to be first explorers and
settlers to conquer this same
land. Actually, these evolution-
ary facts should only give
European immigrants incident
to taking a land, naming it and
its population.
Although this is not begin-
ning earth, it was beginning
America, and immigrant
America voided true first
explorers and settlers in teach-
ings of American history, even
today. American evolution
since A.D. 1400 has been the
way educators and leaders
wanted it to be. European lead-
ership resolves a whole land,
without ever considering cul-
ture that pioneered existence.

urers. She has asked for $5.6
million.
The Southwest Florida
Water Management District is
even climbing out of its
bureaucratic slumber to get
with the program. Some at the
water district believe they can
contribute to the effort
because stormwater runoff
drains from a nearby shopping
center on U.S. 19 through the
Three Sisters Springs property
and into Kings Bay
Significant to the chances of
receiving any of these state or
federal grants is the need to
raise money on the local level.
The people, businesses and
government of Citrus County
need to demonstrate -
through their checkbooks -
that saving Three Sisters
Springs is important. It's going
to take a lot of people like local
veterinarian K.C. Nayfield -
who stepped to the plate and
wrote a personal check for
$5,000 to make this happen.

section and look for things


Any who teach just evolution
will never be teaching true
beginning civilization or total
culture, unless creation is a
part of that discipline, because
the whole problem is shared
characteristics or logically
such as a math problem would
produce an answer, a student
can't fraction numbers, without
a denominator. Students must
start with the whole problem,
to come up with the whole
answer
So consider the following:
Each evolutionary student, it is
up to you to go the remoteness
evolution might journey, but
again the final chapter must be
based on fact for evolution to
inhere. Remember, the search
for the oldest book will not dis-
cover which came first, the
chicken or. the egg, just like
DNA has failed more than one
crime, resolving who did what
and when. Every religious indi-
vidual, it is yours to withstand
criticism, since we are only
here a short time, harmony is
the better discovery, but yours
in one of faith, and remember,
it is up to God to produce fact,
because not all people have
lived their own truth.

Research lacking?
This is in response to Dr.
Dixon's article in the Chronicle
Sunday, March 16, regarding
the war in which we have been
engaged for the past five years.
Let me say first, I'm a lifelong
registered Republican and my
views cannot be
ascribed merely to 0
leftwing fanaticisms S
or such.
I am deeply dis-
turbed that someone
such as Dr. Dixon
could decide to write
about a subject that
has divided this coun-
try for so long and so CALL
painfully, and having 563
done so without ade- 5U00
quately studying or
researching the sub-
ject. This catastrophic misad-
venture by the Bush-Cheney
group will long survive as one
of the darkest periods in our
history. Where has he been for
the past seven years? I see that
he is retired, which only points
out the fact that he should
have sufficient time to ade-
quately review the subject
before foisting it on the public.
Asphalt con?
I just wanted everybody to
beware of a young-looking per-
son that comes around and
wants to asphalt your drive-
ways and stuff. Don't let them
do it. Don't let them con you
into it. They're real friendly and
cheerful. They grab your money
and they do about an hour's
work on your driveway and
they're gone. Just don't do it.
Get somebody that's out of the
phonebook, or a professional,
to do it for you.

We would be ticket-
ed for these viola-
tions. Don't lawmen
have to obey traffic

0 59 agency situations? Do
they also routinely
break other laws in their daily
work activities?
Disgrace to country
It's a shame that our presi-
dent had 4,000 people killed,
21,000 wounded, and goes to
church and says he's a
Christian. How in the world
could anybody do like he's
done? He has ruined this coun-
try ... It's a disgrace to the
country. How in the world
could we keep a man in office
like this? He's no good.

Watching the Tampa Bay
news, now the big deal is some
alligator almost got a little poo-
dle dog named Gizmo. It bit
the thing and the dog got away.
So now they show a trapper
caught the alligator with fishing
line and bait and, you know,
put a rope around its neck or
whatever, and said they got rid
of it.
What does that mean -
they killed it? The alligator
lives in a pond. That's where
they belong. That's why
Florida is unique, more or


less, right? That's one of the
special things, that there's
gators in the water. The
thing's just doing what it's
supposed to be doing and now
they've got to go take it out of
the pond because of the dog
... Why don't you just kill all
the animals and just keep all
your dogs and cats and kill
every other animal in the
world ...
Citizens on Patrol
I was just wondering about
the people that drive around,
the Citizens on Patrol.
Yesterday I was driving down
in Old Homosassa ... and the
lady that was driving in the
car stopped at every intersec-
tion whether there was a stop
sign or not and just looked
down the street. Never did
she look at anybody's house.
She didn't even go down any
side roads.
Is that what these people
are supposed to do? I thought
they were there for protection,
to make sure that no one was
doing anything to anybody's
properties. Well, this lady did-
n't even go down one street.
She just took the main road
down and then stopped at
every street and looked down
the street.
Do your job
I've got a comment for
"Report: Fund rules need tune-
up." The independent consult-
ants say pay pool managers
more like counterparts in pri-
vate sectors. Man, what a
great day for them. Make bad
decisions, make more money.
Wow. More pay is incentive to
do better? You knew what the
job was coming in. Do your
job. Stop sitting on your
thumbs and costing the
Floridians hundreds of mil-
lions of dollars because you're
inept ...


Live for today
Savor the day! Live for today.
'"Today is a gift That is why
we call it the present" That
quote is credited to the late
Eleanor Roosevelt
Put all your love and energy
into today. Today is your most
important day. Enjoy it
You will not regret it
Don't worry about the past It
causes too many wrinkles and
frowns. Worry about the past is
the cause of many psychological
problems. You cannot solve any
past problems or situations. At
the risk of redundancy, the past
is history so valuable. The
past is gone; let it go.
Do not fret about tomorrow.
The Bible reminds us: the
morrow will take care of itself.
It is fruitless, useless to worry
about tomorrow. Of what value
to worry about the if come. A


good night's sleep is worth a
hundredfold tomorrows.
So savor the day!

Praise for papers
With my morning newspa-
per, my options are limitless.
As I open my morning newspa-
per a headline greets me. If it
catches my fancy I read more,
if not, I move on.
I remove the advertising
inserts for review later (don't
want to miss out on a good
deal). I scan the syndicated
columns for items of interest;
again, it is my choice. Local
news scene items everywhere
to keep me informed or not
As I page through the news-
paper if an advertisement
interests me, I read it If not, I
pass it by; my choice.
You can read through the


gripes of your neighbors in the
Sound Off or not Perhaps read
about the latest klutzy episode
of our newspaper's editor,
then languish in your own
false sense of superiority.
It is your choice.
One of the last bastions of
freedom and choice left in
these United States of America
is our daily newspapers. Read
what part of it you like, with or
without commercials; unlike
TV, it's your choice.
So, I say thank you to all you
newspaper people out there -
from the writers to the produc-
tion staff and the guys who
keep the presses humming, to
the humble curbside delivery-
men who keep freedom of
choice alive in America today.
Please don't stop. Just keep
it coming.

under a national program aimed
at helping patients and families
make informed decisions about
the quality of the respiratory care-
services available at hospitals.
About 700 hospitals or approx-
imately 15 percent of hospitals in
the United States have received
this award.
The QRCR program was start-
ed by the American Association
for Respiratory Care (AARC) in
2003 to help consumers identify


- -- a-

those facilities using qualified
respiratory therapists to provide
respiratory care. Hospitals earn-
ing the QRCR designation
ensure patient safety by agree-
ing to adhere to a strict set of cri-
teria governing its respiratory
care services.
To qualify for the recognition,
Citrus Memorial Health System
provided documentation showing
it meets the following conditions:
All respiratory therapists
employed by the hospital to
deliver bedside respiratory care
services are either legally recog-
nized by the state as competent
to provide respiratory care serv-
ices or hold the CRT or RRT cre-
dential.
The AARC's QRCR program
grew out of growing concerns
among health care leaders and
the general public regarding the
safety and quality of health care
services provided to patients.
Hospitals that meet the QRCR
requirements provide a level of
respiratory care consistent with
national standards and guide-
lines, and should be commended
for its commitment to quality
care. A list of QRCR hospitals is
maintained at the association's
Web site for consumers,
YourLungHealth.org.
Respiratory therapists are spe-
cially trained health care profes-
sionals who work under physi-
cian's orders to provide a wide
range of breathing treatments
and other services to people with
asthma, chronic obstructive pul-
monary disease, cystic fibrosis,
lung cancer, AIDS, and other
lung or lung-related conditions.
They also care for premature
infants and are key members of
lifesaving response teams
charged with handling medical
emergencies.
