S l ^ I didn't have my military re-
' tirement, I'd be homeless,"
said Raphael Crews. He
may be one ofthe lucky vic-
og h tims of the current home
foreclosure crisis in Amer-
ica. lucky in that he still has his home for now,
Though he is having to fight to keep it and the
future is uncertain.
The Citrus County veteran returned from
Iraq and retired after 34 years in the U.S.
Army. The 54-year-old soon found himself on


the bad end of a mortgage that was increasing
in an alarming fashion. While he was serving a
year and a half in Iraq, his wife had refinanced
their home, like millions of others did, to use
the equity in the house during the big boom.
Like countless others, she saw an opportu-
nity to fix up the house and pay off a car. The
mortgage broker did not explain the terms
fully, and she made assumptions. It seemed
like she gota good deal.
Not only was the new mortgage interest
going to escalate on them, it didn't even escrow
the taxes and insurance, and the broker didn't
tell the couple, Crews said. They assumed the
mortgage would do that like many traditional
mortgages.

Chronicle
F following the
state and na-
tional trend,
foreclosures in Citrus
County continue to in-
crease. There were 476
cases filed in the first
four months of 2008. In
2007,915 were filed for
the whole year. In 2006,


there were 501 filings.
The number of ac-
tual sales at court-or-
dered auctions is
usually considerably
less than the number
of case filings. For in-
stance, there were 124
foreclosure filings last
month, but only;41 ac-
tual sales at auction.
There are a number of
reasons for that Some
See RISE/Page A8


* Florida had the second-highest number of
foreclosures and the fourth-highest rate of
foreclosure in the nation in the first quarter
of 2008.
* Foreclosures were up 17 percent from the
previous quarter.
* Florida had a 178 percent increase in the
first quarter of 2008 compared to first
quarter 2007
* One in every 97 households received a fore-
closure notice in the first quarter.
* Thirteen of 20 of the highest foreclosure
rates in the nation were in Florida and Cali-
fornia cities.

They are one of many who took such mort-
gages. Crews said his wife has been sick over it
ever since.
Double whammy
That was all bad enough, but at least he had a
job as a home cabinet crew supervisor at Meril-
lat Industries in Ocala. Then he got a double
whammy - he and his whole crew lost their
jobs in a layoff at the company last year during
cutbacks brought on by the economic downturn.
Their daughter and granddaughter live with
them, and now the family of four is just barely
making ends meet - but the mortgage pay-
ment is increasing.

YMCA Express slated for completion in 2009


CRUSTY LOFTIS
cloftis@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
While a full YMCA facility
is still years away, plans are
under way to bring Citrus
County a smaller YMCA Ex-
press in 2009.
YMCA officials are search-


ing for a 10,000-sqare-foot
rental space near Lecanto to
provide a centralized exer-
cise facility to serve the com-
munity until a larger one is
eventually built
"That's our goal is to get
started with a temporary fa-
cility," Sue Ball said, who is
district vice president for


YMCA of the Suncoast.
The YMCA Express would
have an exercise center, chil-
dren's area and meeting room.
The idea is to get the or-
ganization established in Cit-
rus County and ,begin a
capital campaign fund for a
44,000-square-foot YMCA
with athletic fields, indoor


heated pool, water play-
ground, indoor track, lounge
and snack bar. The estimated
cost is $10 million, which
could change depending on
what features are included.
A local steering committee
formed last year after about a
year of work by volunteers to
get the ball rolling. Last


spring, the community raised
$25,000 for a market research
study to determine if a YMCA
was wanted in Citrus and if it
would be successful.
After surveying hundreds
of people, YMCA officials are
confident a YMCA is needed.

Floral City

District renews
water use permit
The Southwest Florida
Water Management District
Governing Board on April 29
renewed and modified a water
use permit (WUP) for the Flo-
ral City Water Association.
The modified permit in-
creases the permitted quanti-
ties. The previous annual
average permitted quantity
was 460,000 geillons of water -
per day (gpd.) The new per-
mitted quantity is 545,000 gpd,
which is an increase of 85,000
gpd.
The increase in quantity is
based on an estimated in-
crease in population. The per-
mitted quantity will serve a
projected population of 5,448
people using an average of
100 gallons per person per
day.
.The permit also includes the
addition of two new wells to re-
place existing wells that have
experienced water quality
problems. The city must sub-'
mit the location information for
the new wells and cap the old
wells that are not being used.
In addition, the city must
conduct metering and submit
monthly withdrawal reports to
the District.
The permit expires April 29,
2018.

Neighborhood gets rude awakening


Rash of vehicle break-ins

reported early Saturday morning


CHRIS VAN ORMER
cvanormer@
chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
A vehicle break-in spree in
an Inverness neighborhood
set the phone ringing at the


sheriff's office Saturday
morning.
"We started getting calls at
8 a.m.," said Gail Tierney,
public information officer for
the Citrus County Sheriff's
Offices.
According to Tierney, 12


vehicles were burglarized
while parked Friday night at
residences in East Pocono
Drive, South Canaday Drive,
East Gospel Island Road and
East Allen Drive. Another
burglary target was an out-
door shed.
"All the vehicles were un-
locked," Tierney said, "with
the exception of one. The
window was broken to take a
purse on the front seat."
Stolen items included: a


hand gun, DVD players, CD
players, iPods, one GPS unit,
a stereo system, other stereo
equipment, cash, video
games, a camcorder, a cam-
era, six theme park passes, a
five-gallon gas can filled with
gasoline and a remote-con-
trolled b'tat that was meant
to be a birthday gift for a
child.
Tierney said the sheriff's
office has no information
about the suspect or suspect,


Safety event on tap


MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle
The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 15-01 will conduct free vessel safety checks in the coming weeks to ensure
boaters have proper equipment to remain legal on the water. Flotilla members will be at the Fort Island Trail Park boat
ramp to conduct free vessel safety checks from 8 a.m. to noon May 17, 18, and 19.

USCG Auxiliary Crystal River
Flotilla 15-01 announced that they are
sponsoring Vessel Safety Checks and an
Information Booth to help promote Na-
tional Safe Boating Week, May 17 to 23,
marking the official launch of the an-
nual North American Safe Boating
Campaign.
National Safe Boating Week pro-
motes the value of wearing life jackets
and other safe boating practices by
recreational boaters through the na-
tional theme "Wear It!"
Flotillas 15-01 and 15-04 will staff an
t ,-


informational booth from 9 a.m. to 5
p.m., May 17 through 23, at West Marine
Inc. in Crystal River. Boaters are en-
couraged to stop by for life jacket infor-
mation and other kinds of safety
information and literature or to sign up
for public educational classes.
Flotilla 15-01 Auxiliaries will con-
duct free Vessel Safety Checks from 8
a.m. to noon, May 17 through 19 at the
Fort Island Trail Park ramp.
Our dedicated volunteers are also
available to perform vessel safety in-
spections at other times and locations'
stop by to make an appointment
U.S. Coast.Guard statistics show that


drowning was the reported cause of
death in two-thirds of recreational
boating fatalities in 2006, and that 90
percent of those who drowned were not
wearing life jackets.
Boaters need not worry that they are
expected to wear a bulky orange "horse
collar" at all times. Life jackets are
available in a wide variety of compact,
lightweight, and attractive styles suit-
able for constant wear. Many are par-
tially or wholly inflatable, and
resemble a wide set of suspenders or
even a belt pack Special varieties are
made for anglers, hunters, skiers, and
other sports enthusiasts.


but it does have a system for
tracking stolen items.
"They are probably in a ve-
hicle and there are probably
more than one," Tierney
said.
Tierney said people could
avoid a vehicle burglary.
"Lock your vehicles and
don't leave stuff visible,"
Tierney said.
Anyone with information
is asked to call the sheriff's
office at 726-1121.

Schools duke it out during Battle of the Belts


press release from Heather
Yates, Citrus County Sheriff's
Office media relations coordi-
nator
A recent survey done in sev-
eral classes at Inverness Mid-
dle School showed that
although 85 percent of stu-
dents felt it was important to
wear seatbelts, only 21 per-
cent were committed to wear-
ing seatbelts all the time, Yates
said.
Also, 57 percent of all 2005
passenger fatalities involving


people up to the age of 17 in-
volved unrestrained passen-
gers, which is why wearing a
seatbelt is extremely impor-
tant, Yates said.
This year during the event,
students can look forward to a
unique presentation by the
Florida Highway Patrol.
Trooper Reggie Edwards will
demonstrate a rollover simu-
lator, which shows students
what happens when a vehicle
rolls over and the occupants
are unrestrained.


Edwards also will set up a
driving course in which stu-
dents may drive a pedal-car
on a course while wearing
DUI-vision goggles. The gog-
gles simulate how driver
may react while driving under
the influence.
Edwards will do the demon-
strations at all three schools.
He will visit Crystal River
High School Tuesday, Citrus
High School Wednesday and
Lecanto High School Thurs-
day

Hazard expo teaches about disaster


Residents arm themselves with

knowledge at Beverly Hills event


CHRIS VAN ORMER
cvanormer@
chrorticleonline.com
Chronicle

Never knowing what the
season may bring, residents
checked out the latest infor-
mation Saturday at the sher-
iff's office's preparedness
expo.
Displays and demonstra-
tions at "Winds, Rains or
Flames - Are You Pre-
pared?" covered nearly every
eventuality. The expo was at
the Beverly Hills Recreation
Association.
The amount of information
in one place was highly con-
venient for Suzanne Daubner,
who moved to Beverly Hills
only two weeks ago from Vir-
ginia. Daubner was interested
in hurricane information.
"We have tornados in Vir-


ginia, but only one hurri-
cane," Daubner said. "I want
to know what to do."
As county government de-
partments were staffing ta-
bles of general information,
Daubner said she would be
able to learn more about the
area for such subjects as
water usage.
"I want to know about get-
ting my dogs microchipped
and my husband wants to use
the landfill," Daubner said.
Sponsors of the expo sup-
plied lots of small giveaway
items. Daubner picked up a
DVD about a vertical bracing
system and a whistle for pro-
tection. As this was her first
experience of the expo, she
thought it was a good idea.
"You don't run into info
fairs like this in Richmond
County," Daubner said about
her previous home.


A 12-year resident of Bev-
erly Hills, David Frost said it
was the first time he had gone
out to a hazard and informa-
tion expo. But he signed up
for a free wind inspection
from the state government
"I think it's a good idea,"
Frost said. "They can check
stuff that I don't think about."
Frost had looked at differ-
ent types of window panels
and shutters, and was seeking
information about trees in
storms.
Rose Bronecki has lived in
Beverly Hills for eight years
and attended many expos be-
fore. She and her husband
were looking for new infor-
mation.
"It's always good to get your
knowledge updated," Bro-
necki said. "This is good com-
munity service."
The information expo will
be offered again from 10 a.m..
to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Na-
tional Guard Armory, Crystal
River. For more information,
call the sheriff's office at 726-
4488.

Continued from Page Al

Their first mortgage pay-
ment was $700 a month. Now
they are looking at it going as
high as $1,700. When they pay
less than is due, it gets tacked
onto the loan. Crews knows it
can go on only so long.
Though he has a lot of ex-
perience in logistics and
warehousing from his time in
the military, the jobs aren't
available now, he said. He
has experience in inventory,
shipping and receiving and
stock management, but it
seems of little use.
"I'm still hanging on, but
it's kind of tough," he said of
staving off an eventual fore-
closure action. Just on prin-
ciple, he said, bankruptcy is
out of the question. Mean-
while, he watches the mort-
gage escalate on his
retirement home.
"It goes up every month,"
he said.
Crews is working with Deb-
orah Dawson of Keller
Williams Realty, a real estate
agent who has specialized in
short sales, or sales that can

economy slowed, the effect spread.
Foreclosure rates began to soar.


go for less than market value
in a situation where someone
is in foreclosure or in danger
of it in a state termed pre-
foreclosure.
So far, she has been his
only hope. Dawson said find-
ing a real estate agent profi-
cient in short sales - and
doing it early on when some-
one can't make or is close to
not being able to make pay-
ments - is critical to anyone
in danger of foreclosure.
The short sales real estate
agent works with the lender
and gets a listing contract for
the property and then mar-
kets it with the intention of
selling it before it goes to auc-
tion. That way, it doesn't af-
fect the owner's credit nearly
as badly, and at least gets
them out of the financial vise.
Creative financing
There are many reasons
for the current foreclosure
surge, but they all come back


to the way money was loaned,
local real estate agents say,
particularly in the heat of the
real estate boom in 2004 and
2005. There was a lot of what
was once called "creative fi-
nancing," which included an
array of adjustable interest
rate mortgages (ARMs) with
interest-only, balloon clauses
and deferred payments, as
well as 100 percent financing.
Borrowing was easy, stan-
dards were relaxed, and own-
ers capitalized on zooming
home equity. Inflated values
led to inflated expectations,
which exacerbated the situa-
tion. Then the market
crashed. Values and sales
headed down, trapping mil-
lions in negative equity situ-
ations, rising payments and
the inability to make their
home payments.
The sinking housing mar-
ket took jobs with it, worsen-
ing the situation. As the

spread. Foreclosure rates
began to soar.
Some have been able to
take advantage of the sour
market, though the lenders
haven't generally been hold-
ing fire sales on either the
properties in danger of fore-
closure or that they have had
to take back in foreclosures.
Still, under the right circum-
stances, it has worked for
some.
RightM house, right time
One couple who took ad-
vantage of the market condi-
tions was Penny Yost and Bill
Pontious. They had a mobile
home on the water in Ho-
mosassa that they had taken
care of and fixed up. They
were lucky enough to find a
buyer from Orlando who
wanted waterfront property
With the money from that,
they went to Becky Norman
at ERA American Realty She
and Lynn Garrison specialize
in short sales, and Norman
put bids in for Yost and Pon-
tious on some homes in dan-
ger of foreclosure.
Norman said short sales
can be maddening, depend-
ing on whom you're dealing
with. Some will give mini-


mum numbers for properties,
others won't. Sometimes
more is owed than the prop-
erty is worth at market value.
Multiple bids often go in and
the lender may not even ac-
cept any The lenders take
time to pick, if they pick
In this case, at the last
minute the lender accepted a
bid for $140,000 for a rela-
tively new four-bedroom,
three-bath home in Sugarmill
Woods. Yost said she was sad
she got the house because of
a foreclosure, but overjoyed
she got what she did for the
price.
Short, not speedy
The "short" in short sales
does not refer to a short time,
Norman cautioned, adding it
is a bit of a wild and wooly
bidding territory. "There are
a lot of good deals out there,
but you have to be patient,"
she said.
Lenders, who are ex-
tremely busy with the num-
ber of homes involved and
who may be entertaining a
number of bids, and/or who
may be waiting for the
higher one, can take a long
time to get back to you, Nor-
man said.

Food drive on



tap for May 10


KERI LYNN MCHALE
kchale@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle

Collect those cans; the
annual "Stamp Out
Hunger" food drive is
quickly approaching.
Rick Meyer, president of
the local chapter of the Na-
tional Association of Letter
Carriers, encourages Citrus
County residents to gather
"anything and everything
that's nonperishable."
On May 10, letter carriers
will pick up food donations
left next to mailboxes by
generous residents.
"I have picked up one
can. I have picked up sev-
eral bags," Meyer said.
Every little bit counts, es-
pecially this year, he said.
Many Citrus County resi-
dents are facing hard times
due to the economic slow-
down and price hikes in gas
and food prices, Meyer
said. The food collected
during the drive in Citrus
County will be distributed
to Citrus County food


pantries.
Food donations should be
in sealed containers that
have never been opened.
Cans and boxes of food are
perfect, Meyer said; glass
jars are not accepted be-
cause they easily break. Do-
nations should also be well
wrapped and not placed di-
rectly on the ground, to
avoid attracting insects.
The United States Postal
Service, Campbell Soup
Company, American Feder-
ation of Labor and Con-
gress of Industrial
Organizations and local
United Ways are partnering
with the National Associa-
tion of Letter Carriers to
co-sponsor the one-day na-
tionwide food drive.
Since its beginning 14
years ago, postal workers
have collected about 836
million pounds of food
across the nation, Meyer
said.
Last year, 71-million
pounds of food were do-
nated nationwide, Meyer
said.

property owners manage to
catch up their payments or
work out an arrangement
with the lender before the
property is ordered to go to
sale.
Others are able, usually
with the help of real estate
agents, to sell the property.
These are usually what real
estate agents call "short
sales," and can involve an
agreement with the lender
and property owner to sell
the property for less than the
market value, and in some
cases, for less than is owed,
though lenders often prefer
to let the property go to auc-
tion and then to buy it back
themselves.
That was obvious in the
foreclosure sale two weeks
ago at the Citrus County


TALE
Continued from Page Al

personal disaster-that can
affect lives for years. While
there are many reasons
someone might find himself
in the situation, she said,
the key to dealing with it is
to get help early on.
Some government pro-
grams can help save a home,
she said, but if the bottom
line is that the person is just
not going to be able to afford
the home any longer, then a
real estate agent experi-
enced in what's called
"short sales" can usually
help. The term refers to sell-
ing short of, the market
value. It can take longer
than a regular sale, and so
beginning early is impor-
tant, she said.
Simply talking to the
lender early on can be cru-
cial to minimizing the dam-
age, she said, but,
unfortunately, too often peo-.
ple don't do that. Once a is
pendens is filed - the legal
filing in circuit court that
begins the foreclosure ac-
tion - the clock is ticking,
she said.
Foreclosures can vary, de-
pending on the circum-
stances, and can take from
three months to a year or
more. Most don't go to a
court-ordered auction.
Real estate agents who
have been trained in short
salestand who have closed
short sales can help owners
in trouble by presenting
their lender with a listing
contract and negotiating
with the lender so that buy-
ers can be presented and a
sale can be effected.
Lenders differ in, the
processes, she said, but they
don't want the property if
they can avoid it. If there is
a better way out, they usu-
ally will give some al-
lowances to promote a
better outcome if there is a
knowledgeable real estate
agent actively working it
and there 'seems t6 be
progress. Though the home
may have to be sold, the
owner does not suffer the
consequences of foreclo-
sure.
It means they can usually
stay in the home until the
sale, and they can avoid the
black mark to their credit
that could keep them from
mortgaging anything signifi-
cant for a reasonable inter-
est rate for a long time. She
said it depends on the per-
son and situation, but a fore-
closure stigma can stay with
them as long five or even up
to 10 years.
Dawson said she doesn't
see things getting better for
those at risk and she ex-
pects more and more short
selling.
"Citrus County is starting
to get more foreclosures,
and jobs are being lost," she
said, adding that another set
of adjustments in adjustable
rate mortgages are expected
in May and June, which will
cause another surge of fore-
closure actions.
To her, finding a qualified
agent to handle foreclosure
cases is .absolutely crucial
in' dealing with it. She said
homeowners should ques-
tion prospective real estate
agents to make sure they
know what they are doing
because short selling is dif-
ferent. Just asking how
many short sales they've
closed will give an indica-
tion.
The other side
Homes in danger of fore-
closure or already in fore-
closure actions are half the

ation. Once the homes are


Courthouse. The court had
slated 20 properties for auc-
tion. Seven were pulled and
of the 13 that were auc-
tioned, 12 went back to the
plaintiff, or lender
One investor, who was in-
terested in a set of lots, was
quickly outbid by the agent
for the lender The investor
realized the lender was going
to keep raising the bid to the
amount owed in the official
settlement amount, and see-
ing he would get no deal,
dropped out
In last week's foreclosure
auction, all 15 properties
auctioned went back to the
plaintiff. That is the current
trend, lenders taking the
property back, whereas in
2006, for example, of 103
sales, 56 properties went
back-to the plaintiff, but 47
went to outside bidders.
Those investors aren't to be
found at current auctions,
however.

. there are few

most proper-

way. Winning bidders other
than the plaintiffs, however,
must put up 5 percent of the
value of the property upon
winning the bidding and
then come up with the re-
mainder of the money by 4
p.m. that same day, or the
property is set for sale again.
The foreclosure auctions
take place at 11 a.m. Thurs-
days in the Jury Assembly


Room on the ground floor of
the Citrus County Court-
house in Inverness. Bidders
must register with the Clerk's
office beforehand.
A copy of the notice of fore-
closure sale must be adver-
tised in a local newspaper
authorized by law to accept
legal notices, which is the
Chronicle in Citrus County.
The advertisement must be
published once a week for
two consecutive weeks, and
the second publication must
be at least five days before
the sale date.
The Notice of Sale also is
displayed on a bulletin board
in the Courthouse and at the
Satellite Office in Crystal
River Interested persons can
purchase a mortgage foreclo-
sure list in person or in writ-
ing. The cost is $1 per page.
For those who would buy
at auction, there is one seri-
ous caveat. They must do
their own due diligence. Be-


fore the bidding begins, the
deputy clerk conducting the
sale will read an announce-
ment informing potential
buyers of their rights and re-
sponsibilities under Florida
law.
A description of the prop-
erty is not read. Potential
buyers take the property as
is, subject to any defects,
liens, encumbrances and all
matters of which the buyer
had notice or could have ob-
tained knowledge. In other
words, if the buyers don't do
their homework, they may
find the property has liabili-
ties they didn't anticipate
and they have no recourse as
the new owner.
For more information
about the foreclosure
process, see the Citrus
County Court Clerk's Inter-
net Web site at
clerk.citrus.fl.us and type in
"foreclosure" in the Search
box.

sold at auction and bought
back by the lender, they are
called REOs, which is short
for a real estate property
owned by the bank or
lender. These have become
part of the lender com-
pany's assets and are in a
different class.
There are real estate
agents who specialize in the
sale of these. Tomika
Spires-Hanssen of Land-
mark Realty, for example,
has the Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac REO contracts
in the county. She also deals
with Countrywide. She esti-
mates that about half the
sales in Citrus today are
foreclosure related.
She explained that the
sales after a foreclosure are
different in that the bank or


lender will have the proper-
ties appraised and the sales
will be based on that rather
than in the foreclosure auc-
tion in which the mortgage
plus legal costs and interest
basically set the auction be-
ginning price, or what the
lender will bid it up to if a
third party bids on it.
Once in a while, a specific
lender may have an auction
on an inventory of proper-
ties, she said, but it won't be
an absolute auction, mean-
ing if the lender doesn't
reach a minimum biding
price, the property isn't
sold.


Spires-Hanssen said from
the economic point of view,
she doesn't see the current
foreclosure phenomenon as
negatively as others. It is
simply part ofthe cycle of
the market in relation to
what came before, she said.
She believes the housing in-
dustry is close to bottoming
out and we will start to see a
return to a normal market
beginning in the third quar-
ter of this year. She said the
values already are not that
far off what they should be,
significantly down from the
height of the boom, but a de-
cent step ahead of the pre-


boom values.
From her point of view,
she said, the current market
with so many foreclosures is
a transitional phase. "It's
not a bad market; it's a dif-
ferent market."
She said with lenders not
lending on marginal credit
any more, the passing of the
volatile ARMs, and more re-
strictions on lending, as the
foreclosures make their way
through the market toward
the end of the year, the mar-
ket will begin to return
more toward the middle -
with the prices where they
should be.

Tea for two


Special to the Chronicle
Shirley and Michael Maksymicz of Pine Ridge, Beverly Hills, recently embarked on a
10-day Eastern Caribbean cruise. They visited the Islands of Samana, Tortola, An-
tigua, St. Lucia and Barbados. While visiting Barbados, they had the unique pleasure
of experiencing an authentic English tea In the unique gardens surrounding Sunbury
plantation, a more than 300-year-old plantation in the Barbados countryside.


DREAM

The Chronicle and The

the Sunday Chronicle. At
the end of the year, a panel
of judges will select the
best photo during the year
and that photograph will


win a prize.
Please avoid photos with
dates on the print.
Photos should be sent to

cle office in Inverness,
Crystal River or any Accent
Travel Office.


Small real estate with big impact


Keep a careful watch
for the clever thieves
who hang around the
offload platform of the cable
car that carries you to the top
of the Rock. These sneaks
have become very adept at
working in pairs. One dis-
tracts tourists with his antics
while another raids your
backpack or handbag. But
they really prefer shopping
bags! We even observed them
snatching sunglasses and
hats.
The Rock is not listed as
one of the wonders of the
world, but it is perhaps one of
the most recognizable fea-
tures on earth's face. No,
Prudential does not own the
Rock of Gibraltar. They were
simply clever enough to.
adopt it as their logo, which
has helped make it indelible
in our minds.
Gibraltar's size is remark-
able in that it is barely a mile
long and 2,000 feet
wide, and its bor-
der with Spain is
less than a. half-
mile long east to
west. Its airport
landing strip ex-.
tends out into the
bay and must be
driven or walked
across to get into
Spain. Neil S(

prises virtually all
of the country of
Gibraltar, which is a posses-
sion of Great Britain. Control
of Gibraltar was, and is, the
envy of France and particu-
larly Spain, because its

strategic location as the gate-
way to the Mediterranean is
at the toe of Spain - a sore
one at that. In 2002, by refer-
endum, about 99
percent of Gibral-
tar's residents
voted to remain a
dependency of
Great Britain. This
is symptomatic of
Gibraltar's check-
ered past, as
nearly every ma-
rauding country
lawyer has attempted to
NEOUS claim it as its own.
GUIDE We arrived in
Gibraltar by ship
after a nine-day
crossing of the Atlantic from
Miami, with stops in the
Azores and Lisbon. The Strait
of Gibraltar is one of the
busiest shipping lanes in the


world, as it is the only sea
passage from the Atlantic to
the Mediterranean. Morocco,
on the right, and Gibraltar on
the left, were both visible for
many miles as we ap-
proached the port.
Step off the ship and you're
in the city of Gibraltar. As
with most European port
cities, it is modern, clean and
lined with major brand-name
stores. The main street leads
to a cable car station for a
scenic ride to the top of the
Rock, the major attraction in
Gibraltar - providing a 360-
degree view of the entire
country, including the city
stretched out below, the har-
bor with 100 or more ships

your hat, as the wind always blows!
While on top of the Rock, be sure to visit
some of the caves and tunnels, ramparts for
the various armed forces who occupied the
country through the centuries. If the Rock
were dissected it would appear as Swiss
cheese, riddled with 32 miles of tunnels.
The crest of the Rock is home to 200 Bar-
bary apes, the only wild monkeys in Europe.
Clever and streetwise, these apes have be-
come skilled at snatching shopping bags,


ladies' handbags, hats or anything else that
appears loose, and scampering off to their
hiding places before coming back for more.
They are a nonstop source of "entertain-
ment" - but they do bite if they don't get their
way.

Neil Sawyer is a 22-year Crystal River resi-
dent and businessman. He and his wife,
Karyn, are extensive travelers, venturing to
foreign countries two to three times a year
in addition to taking several domestic excur-
sions annually. They prefer independent
travel or with small group guided tours. E-
mail him atgobuddy@tampabay.rrcom.

CITRUS COUN7Y (M) CHRONICLE


Today's HOROSCOPE


Your Birthday: Your natural
ability for making friends will
serve you well in the year ahead.
New alliances and relationships
will prove to be of enormous
value to you in more ways than
you can ever envision.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)-
You might learn something about
yourself and how to bring out
your best side, but it won't hap-
pen by accident. You'll have to
work at it to redefine and restruc-
ture what wasn't working.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) -
Sometimes it's smart to stay out


of your own way and let things
happen. This could be the case
today concerning a domestic
matter. Let events provide the
answer.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)-
Others may hope for good things
to happen based on wishful
thinking, but not you. For exam-.
pie, if you're looking to socialize,
you'll get on the phone and put a
group together for a fun event.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) - You
wor't use today merely to sit
around and produce nothing.
You will take the time to create


some long-range projects or ac-
tually put your hand toward
something you considerto be
productive.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)-
Instead of focusing on your im-
mediate needs or desires, do
some planning about things that
could have a favorable effect
upon your future. Once you have
a plan of action, you'll feel good
about yourself.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)-
There is a possibility that you
might find yourself participating
in some type of profitable


arrangement at this time.
Chances are you won't initiate it,
but it will be part of a multiple ef-
fort.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)-
If you want to make progress on
your latest idea, rather than
working with something
untested, concentrate on using
traditional techniques instead..
Don't discard what isn't broken.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
- This may be a day off work,
but that doesn't mean you
should waste this wonderful pe-
riod doing nothing. Concentrate


your energies on something that
is meaningful to you.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
- Your greatest talent at this
time is your ability to deal suc-
cessfully with difficult people or
sticky situations. You'll do a mas-
terful job without ruffling any
feathers in the process.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
- You're rarely intimidated by
shifting conditions brought on by
outside forces, and you're not
apt to get rattled today over
something you can't control.
You'll work things out to your ad-


vantage.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20)-
Because you always try to treat
people in a respectful manner,
friends and colleagues will at-
tempt to imitate your cooperative
spirit. It'll be all your doing as to
why this day turns out so well.
Aries (March 21-April 19) -
Stay on top of situations and,
with a little effort on your part,
something you desire could be-
come a reality and turn this into a
great day for you. It pays to be
diligent.

Red Sox 12, Rays 4
BOSTON - Manny Ramirez singled
in two runs in the first inning to end his
longest RBI drought with Boston and
Josh Beckett pitched eight innings to
help the Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay
Rays 12-4 on Saturday night.
Ramirez also had an RBI double
and threw out a runner at the plate.
Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz each
had three hits and Jason Varitek drove
in three runs for Boston, which has
won four of five after a five-game los-
ing streak.
The Red Sox can complete the three-
game sweep - like the Rays did to
them last weekend in St. Petersburg, Fla.
- Sunday afternoon when Tampa Bay's
Scott Kazmir is scheduled to make his
first start of the season.
Gabe Gross hit a two-run homer and
Akinor Iwamura also connected for the
Rays, who lost for just the third time in
11 games.
Beckett (3-2) allowing four runs and
seven hits, struck out five and walked
one.
Ramirez threw out Carlos Pena trying
to score On a flyball, ending a fourth-in-
ning rally.
James Shields (3-2) tossed a two-
hit shutout in his previous start Sun-


Braves 9, Reds 1
ATLANTA - The Atlanta Braves
made it easy for Jo-Jo Reyes to win his-
2008 debut.
' Reyes gave up one run in 51-3 in-
nings, and Atlanta broke open a dose
game with a six-run seventh to beat the
Cincinnati Reds 9-1 Saturday night.
Reyes (1-0), recalled from Triple-A
Richmond for the start in place of the in-
jured John Smoltz, gave up four hits and
one run in 5 1-3 innings. He walked
three and struck out five.
Relievers Jeff Bennett, Will Ohman,
Jorge Campillo, Blaine Boyer and Chris
Resop finished with 3 2-3 perfect innings.
Reds starter Matt Belisle (1-2) gave up
,eight hits and two runs in 51-3 innings.
Reyes probably earned himself an-
other start. When Smoltz returns from
his shoulder injury, he plans to become
the Braves'closer.
The Braves led only 2-1 on a double
by Chipper Jones in the first and Yunel
Escobar's single in the fifth before send-
ing 10 batters to the plate in the big sev-
enth inning.

Yankees 6, Mariners 1
NEW YORK- Johnny Damon
homered and doubled twice to help
Mike Mussina win his third straight start
in the New York Yankees' 6-1 victory
over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday.
One day after co-chairman Hank
Steinbrenner said he was "disappointed
with the way the season has gone," the
Yankees (16-16) rapped out 13 hits and
beat Seattle for the second consecutive
day following a three-game sweep by
the Detroit Tigers in New York.
Derek Jeter had three hits, Damon
scored three times and Mussina (4-3)
outpitched Felix Hernandez, 17 years
his junior, for his 254th win.
The slumping Mariners have lost
four in a row, managing only seven
runs during that stretch, and eight of 10
overall. They fell to 6-11 on the road
and made two more errors after com-
mitting four in the first three innings of
Friday nights 5-1 loss.
Mussina was in control all afternoon,
using a sharp curveball and 68 mph
changeup to strike out five batters in six
strong innings. He passed Carl Hubbell
on the career wins list while tying Jack
Morris and Hall of Famer Red Faber for
39th place.
Mussina struck out three in his final
inning, drawing calls of "Moooose!"
from the crowd of 52,810 on a brisk
day with a gametime temperature of
52 degrees.

Blue Jays 5, White Sox 2
TORONTO -Vernon Wells drove in
three runs, Marco Scutaro homered
and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the
Chicago White Sox 5-2 on Saturday.
Right-hander Jesse Litsch (4-1) gave
up two runs and five hits in 7 1-3 in-
nings for Toronto, which has won three
straight after losing eight of nine. Wells
went 3-for-5 with three singles.
Litsch was perfect through four, but
Paul Konerko singled off the glove of
second baseman Aaron Hill to begin
the fifth. Litsch, who has won back-to-
back starts, struck out three and
walked none.
Scott Downs got two outs in the
eighth and B.J. Ryan worked the ninth
for his fourth save.
Chicago's Jermaine Dye ended an
0-for-15 streak with a solo home run in
the seventh, snapping a streak of 24 2-
3 consecutive scoreless innings by Blue
Jays pitchers. Toronto had not given up
a run since the ninth inning of Wednes-
day's 2-1 loss at Boston.
Carlos Quentin went deep for his
eighth homer in the eighth but the
White Sox still lost their season-high
fourth straight. Chicago has dropped
seven of 10.
David Eckstein doubled and scored
on a two-out single by Wells in the first,
and Scutaro hit a solo homer off John
Danks (2-3) in the third, his first.

Angels 3, Orioles 1
ANAHEIM, Calif.- Jon Garland
pitched three-hit ball for eight innings,
Gary Matthews Jr. drove in two runs
and the Los Angeles Angels beat the
Baltimore Orioles 3-1 Saturday with
slumping slugger Vladimir Guerrero on
the bench.
Only four Orioles reached base
against Garland (4-3), who allowed one
run and retired 18 of his last 19 batters.
It was the first time he got through the
seventh since his Angels debut on April
1, when he went eight innings in a 9-1
win at Minnesota. He had one walk and
one strikeout, both in the first inning.
Francisco Rodriguez pitched a per-
fect ninth for his 12th save, breaking a
tie with Baltimore's George Sherrill for
the major league lead.
Los Angeles pulled ahead 2-1 with a
pair of runs in the seventh against
Daniel Cabrera (2-1). The right-hander
plunked No. 9 hitter Brandon Wood on
the shoulder with one out, then walked
Chone Figgins before giving up an RBI
single by Reggie Willits. Matthews fol-
lowed with a sacrifice fly.
For the second time in two games,
the Orioles failed to throw out a runner
at home plate on a grounder with the
infield in. Matthews rapped one to sec-
ond baseman Brian Roberts, whose
throw to Ramon Hernandez was a
shade too late as Figgins slid in under
the tag.

D-Backs 10, Mets 4
PHOENIX - Brandon Webb be-
came the majors' first seven-game win-
ner, Augie Ojeda drove in a career-high
six runs and the Arizona Diamond-
backs beat the New York Mets 10-4 on
Saturday.
Webb (7-0) matched Randy Johnson
in 2000 for the fastest start by a Dia-
mondbacks pitcher.
Starting in place of injured second'
baseman Orlando Hudson, Ojeda en-
tered with two RBIs. He hit a two-run sin-
gle in the second, a two-run double in the
fifth and a two-run double in the eighth.
On the day he was selected NL
pitcher of the month for April, Webb went
six innings, allowing a season-high four
runs. He gave up five hits, walked two
and struck out three.
Webb was sailing along with a 5-1
lead when Ryan Church singled and
Carlos Beltran walked in the sixth. With
two out, Carlos Delgado hit a 1-1 delivery
deep into the right-field seats to cut Ari-
zona's lead to 5-4.
The Diamondbacks responded with
five runs in the eighth against Duaner
Sanchez.
Webb had fared poorly against the
Mets, with a 2-6 lifetime record, and he
quickly fell behind on Saturday.

AP source: Labonte
agrees to extension
RICHMOND, Va.- Bobby
Labonte became the latest driver
to take himself off the free-agent
market, agreeing to a contract
extension with Petty Enterprises,
a person familiar with the negoti-
ations told The Associated
Press.
The former Cup Series cham-
pion had been considering an
extension since late last year
and decided this week to con-
tinue driving the famed No. 43
Dodge.

Around 120 people have killed themselves since the higher, cable-supported version of the Sunshine Skyway opened in April 1987, carrying
traffic across the mouth of Tampa Bay on Interstate 275. Now it's possible that the bridge patrol could be cut back as the cash-strapped state

The toes


of this


taxpayer


hurt
I was recently bitten on the
toe by a dog.
I was in bed.
It was my dog.
It was a long, slow journey
to get to the point where I
now have to share my bed
with not one, put two dogs.
But that morning, the im-
mediate question facing me
was not, "Why am I sleeping
in bed with two dogs?" but
more importantly, "Why am I
sleeping in bed with a dog
that is biting my big toe?"
It turns out that Wilson the
Yorkie bit my toe because I
got in his space. When he's
sleeping - and you get in his
space - he tends to get
cranky. I had moved my foot
in his immediate area and he
decided that taking a nice
bite was the best way to let
me know I had come too far.
Once my toe begins to feel
better I will attempt to tackle
the larger question of how
the darned dog got into my
bed in the first place. Right
now I'm nursing my wounds.
And I'm thinking seriously of
biting Wilson back

writing and speaking
about the fact that Hillary
Clinton would win the Penn-

The reasons were pretty
simple: Of the mega-states

Pennsylvania, had won five
and Obama had won two. One
of the two was Georgia, with
a large black vote in Atlanta.
The primary reason was that
Hillary's economic message
resonated with middle Amer-
ica more than Obama's more
theoretical and philosophical
economic message. I felt that


the Pennsylvania
race was a great
deal like the Ohio
race. Hillary came
into Ohio with a
big lead and
Obama closed the
gap significantly
About a week out,
Obama hit a road-
block and was Lou

polls was even with her a
week before the election. The

Leave the

mudslinging

to candidates
ello, political season.
Here we are in the
midst of springtime,
and campaign signs are bust-
ing out all over.
Citrus Countians are pas-
sionate about their politics
and during the next few
months the heated politics
we're seeing on a national
level with the presidential
candidates will play out at
the local and state levels.
It can be a lot of fun but it
can also be cutthroat
Again this political season,
the Chronicle will exercise
the practice of publishing en-
dorsement letters but will re-
ject letters critical of
candidates.
Write us to say why you
support a certain candidate;
or, write to explain your posi-
tion on an issue of local con-
cern and urge others to
support candidates who
share your opinion. Again,
though, we're not publishing
letters that name candidates
and why you don't like them.
Why? It's easy to be critical
and sling mud. It's not easy to
be constructive. If we open
the floodgate to the mud-
slingers, there's no limit to
how low they'll go.
As candidates go about
bashing one another, that'll be-
come news of some public in-
terest, but it's our practice to
write stories about that type of
stuffvs. using our Opinion page
as a mud-wrestling forum.

ADVOCATING SIMPLICITY



Less is better



when it comes



to government


While we would hate to set
the expectations too
high, newly appointed
County Administrator Tony
Schembri is already setting a
new tone for government in Cit-
rus County
Schembri was ap-
pointed county ad- THE IS
ministrator two . Anew
weeks ago by a frac- 'ty
turned commission county go
that has had trouble
agreeing on any- OUR eO
thing. But the five Make.it
elected board mem-
bers all agreed that
Schembri could be the person to
lead them out of their current
malaise.
The new administrator has a
no-nonsense approach to lead-
ership and he understands how
government is supposed to work
One of the reasons the last ad-
ministrator - June Fisher -
failed to succeed in her role was
because the elected members of
the countygeommission spent
much of their:time giving direc-
tions to department managers
and employees.
The politicians are supposed
to give direction to the county
administrator. The administra-
tor is then supposed to direct the
activities of the employees.
When the chain of command
breaks down, employees don't
know who they're supposed to
answer to.
We're.confident that Adminis-
trator Schembri is secure enough
in his leadership skills that he
will insist that county govern-


Country folks
I really have to laugh at these
people who move to Inverness and
then do nothing but complain.
First someone com-
plained about our back-
country roads having no k
streetlights and how dark
it is at nighttime, then
someone complained
about Inverness not hav-
ing a JCPenney or a %
Macy's, and now someone I
complaints about the
county not paving their CAL
dirt road. Do they just 5 6
move, buy these homes -563
here and then expect In-
verness to cater to their every little
whim? They should have though
about being unhappy with these
conditions before they moved here.
We country folks didn't force
that move on them, so stop
complaining.
Kudos, Inverness
This is in response to the Sound
Off regarding the improvements to
downtown Inverness through the
Florida Department of Transporta-
tion funding. Yes, the monies to
fund the landscaping project ulti-
mately come from paying our
taxes. Instead our tax dollars
could be funding projects in
Tampa, Miami, Gainesville, etc.
Does that make you happier to
know your taxes are spent else-
where? Don't you think local gov-
ernment officials should try to
recoup monies for local projects in
any way they can? If you want to
pay less taxes, your issue is with
federal and state government, not
the city. Kudos to the city of Inver-
ness for taking the effort to pursue
the grant, wishing to improve the
looks of our city and bring some

We are also confident that
Schembri will set the right tone
for dealing with taxpayers. After
just one week in office the new
administrator sent out notice

that he wants
county employees
to figure out ways to
make it easier for
taxpayers to inter-
act with county de-
partments. Starting
with the permitting
department at De-
velopment Serv-
ices, Schembri said,


"We are in the business of mak-
ing it easier, not more difficult,
for persons to apply for permits."
Instead of creating new rules
or procedures, Schembri has es-
tablished a committee that will
recommend "rules and proce-
dure reductions" in an effort to
streamline interaction with gov-
ernment
*When it comes tA. rules and:
regulations, lbessis bett.er. "'
. Encouraging government to be
less bureaucratic is a great phi-
losophy for the top new guy in
town.
Schembri will run into plenty
of problems he will have trouble
solving. The miserable morale of
county employees will be a diffi-
cult challenge. But we're
pleased that right out of the box
he is open with the taxpayers
and an advocate for simplicity.

ment, our tax bills and the bu-
reaucracy of government - less

Ethanol gas can burn up your
engine. If you bought a new car in
the last three or four years, check
with your car dealership's service
department. They can tell you if
the engine can safely burn an
ethanol-gasoline mixture. I just
found that my '06 Toyota can burn
a mixture less than 10 percent ...
My '96 Jeep will have no problem
burning gas with ethanol. Check
your car's service department if
it's new, to find out if it's safe to
burn an ethanol-gasoline mixture.
Is it for real?
About a quarter 'til 7, this is on
Tuesday, a man called me and
said he was from the sheriff's de-

department got somebody solicit-

or what? I'd like to know for sure. I

, ... .LETTERS to the Editor


Focus on real problems
I received a telephone call about
the lapel button that Barack
Obama wears. The question was
what was he wearing rather than
the flag. I was so dumbfounded by
such an idiotic question that I
could not answer appropriately.
Herewith is a partial answer. The
price of gas is soaring through the
roof; thousands of jobs are lost
every month; the wounded troops
are still receiving substandard care;
the economy is going down the
tubes as a direct result of the war
without cause and without end;
thousands of homes are foreclosed
upon every month; the government
bails out the builders and the sav-
ings and loan associations while the
little people get tossed out of their
homes; the numbers of homeless
and starving grows every month;
troops are dying daily in Iraq;
health care is unattainable for most;
too many workers have lost pen-
sions because corporations moved
their jobs overseas. The presentAd-
ministration is corrupt from stem to
stern and top to bottom.
The Republicans scare gun own-
ers that the Democrats are going to
take their guns away. The Republi-
cans use religion to focus on abor-
tion and gays. President Bush
started the dialogue on the hordes
of immigrants that take away jobs.
The corporate CEOs make more
money in one day than any worker
does in a year and pay taxes at a
lower rate than said worker. So
after the worker bees have voted
against their real interests by vot-
ing Republican, they are ignored
until the next election comes
along
With all of these real problems,
why would anybody waste time
worrying about a lapel pin?

Shudder to think
Thank you, Chronicle, for the re-
minder of the plight of William
Thornton IV What a tragic situa-
tion for all families involved.
I shudder to think that my 17-
year-old could also be handed
down that 30-year sentence for
causing an accident that results in
the deaths of a driver and passen-
ger who were not wearing their
seat belts.
I also shudder to think that in
the same court, a man can be sen-
tenced to less than half that time
for beating to death a pregnant
woman.

There is commitment
I resent your editorial, "City
needs to demonstrate commitment"
What in the heck do you think we
did when we voted to be the lead
agency applying for grants to pur-
chase (the property adjacent to)
Three Sisters and keep it from
being a multimillion-dollar devel-
opment? If built as permitted, that
project would bring the city around
$800,000 annually in city taxes and
hundreds of thousands of dollars of
water and sewer revenue.
That's not a monetary commit-
ment? That commitment will go on
for the next 100 years.
There are some residents that
think we are stupid for doing this. It
could represent a 30 percent de-
crease in property, taxes for city res-
idents. In addition, we are contrib-
uting a substantial amount of our

As a member of the audience
pointed out at the last meeting,
shelling out taxpayers' money for
"saving Three Sisters" is a lot differ-
ent than someone writing their own
check voluntarily. Keep in mind we
do not even know what the end
product is going to be.
You must have slept through Econ
101 to not know that Crystal River is
contributing more than anybody to
this project in monetary terms.
I may not be personally against
contributing some monies to the
project, but it is very similar to us
choosing a charity to give money to.
If it becomes a U.S. Fish and
Wildlife park, very few city resi-
dents will visit it They will be
mostly tourists and county resi-
dents. The only thing the city resi-
dents get out of this is the good
feeling that we helped to save a
pristine property.

The Hadley diet? The smell of fear can't be erased


W watching one's weight
is as American as
apple pie. Fad diets
come and go and many of 'em
actually work for a while.
Unfortunately, most are diffi-
cult to maintain for the long
haul and many folks give up
and gain back all the pounds
that were lost
There's a reality TV show
which glamorizes being the.
"biggest loser" - and that's
OK; competition is a good
thing when it has a desired
result.
Competition is good, but
sometimes fear is better.

and I came to the conclusion I'd like it to be, but it's not


what it once was. I'm com-
mitted to my personal battle
of the bulge, but I do have
weak moments, times when I
consider adopting the
"Hadley" diet
As a young bank examiner,
I had the privilege of work-
ing with Mr. Hadley Shaw. He
was well up in years - early
70s, as I recall (it seemed
much older at the time) -
and he suffered maladies
customary for people his age.
His wife, Mary, began try-
ing to control his intake of
what she and his doctors con-
sidered unacceptable foods.


To this end, each day Mary
would pack Hadley's lunch.
Most of the time, his little
plastic kit contained half of a
tuna sandwich on dry, whole
wheat bread along with a few
raisins, three or four carrot
sticks, all to be washed down
with six ounces of salt-free
tomato juice.
In order to give the answer
he knew she wanted when
Mary asked if he had eaten
the lunch she'd prepared,
Hadley dutifully ate it. He
ate it at the morning coffee
break and then went out for
a real meal with the rest of us


at noon. Hadley would metic-
ulously brush his teeth and
gargle with mouthwash to
mask any scent of the contra-
band he'd eaten.
Oh, well. It's only a dream
- a fantasy. I don't have the
guts. Cheryl would find out.
Hadley only had to mask the
scent of a barbecue sandwich
or a big, greasy hamburger--
the smell of fear can't be
erased!

Hot Corner: GAS PRICES


Give us a break
Today is April 29 and I just saw the
local news and it said Gov. Crist is going
to give us a two-week break on the gas
tax in July. Why not all summer when
families have all their children at home
and they usually take them to different
places to travel to? It would be better for
the whole summer to give these people a
break. And not only the people with chil-
dren, but other people who want to do
traveling throughout the summer. I think
it should go for the whole summer, not
just two weeks in July.
Copping out?
I have a comment for "Energy crisis
needs real solutions." I mean, am I taking
your information out of context or are
you just copping out? Are you saying that
1,700 gallons of. water is wasted into pro-
duction of one gallon? And the fact is, it
goes gasoline, alcohol, nitro methane.
Fast race cars, faster race cars, the
fastest race cars, 1, 2, 3. Get it right.
You're being lied to.
Open Alaska
We need to open Anwar, Alaska, for oil.
We need oil now. The rest of the green
people are the ones that have money to
take care of themselves. Take care of us.
Open our fields for oil. Let's use our own
oil and get the prices down. We can't
keep this up. Now either you do some-
thing or we're going to do something
drastic to get this done. We'll vote every
one of you out of office if you don't do
something about it. Just because you've
got money, doesn't mean the rest of us
do. We're tired of being the worker that
doesn't get taken care of. We don't want
promises; we want to see oil digging now.
Responsible parties
Those ,hhi are blammg the gvrnbfeto-
and the president for the gas prices right
now, they should be informed that the
'.governor and the president have nothing
to do about it. It's up to the Senate and
the House to make laws and it's up to the
president or the governor to OK them.
These senators, all they're doing is run-
ning around the country looking for votes
instead of staying in the White House and
making laws.
Coasting along
Would you like to buy gas at $2.99 a
gallon instead of $3.69? You can do es-
sentially that by coasting - really! I
mean not using your brakes any more
than you absolutely have to. It takes
some getting used to. You have to look
ahead for stop signs and anticipate red
lights, cars pulling out, etc., but it really
works. Around town my mpg went from
17.9 to 22.1. On the highway, keeping
tires inflated to the max and.reducing
cruising speed will produce similar, but
not as spectacular, results. Dropping my
speed 10 percent increases my mileage
by about 12 percent, according to my
new fuel-management system. Oh yeah,

some people don't like my coasting. But
now I have my timing down so that I can
get to the light just as the cars ahead of
me are getting up to speed. Try it - it re-
ally works.
Don't fall for it
Monday, April 28's paper, on the front
page it said "Bartell lobbies to suspend
gas tax." Well, i'm here to tell you, for all
the people that's read this, don't get
sucked in by votirig for all these people.
They should have reduced the gas tax not
6 cents, but by 12 cents at least two
years ago. Now that the election's com-
ing, people are trying to get their heads
on straight. Well, they have to do a little
more than that. We're all not that dumb
as to fall for a ploy like that. I'll remind
you again about suspending the gas tax
before it's voting time.
Flimflammed,
Well, Congress, once again, has bam-
boozled the U.S. Wednesday, April 23,
they say they're getting onto Detroit
about increasing the fuel mileage to 31.6
percent by 2015, another seven years.
But the February issue of Consumer Re-
ports has the top 12 gas savers, eight of
which gets over 40 mpg and the Toyota
Prius gets 50 mpg. So Congress has said,
"OK, Detroit, we're going to get on you.
You're going to have to do what you've
been doing all along, but we'll make it
look good like we're really getting on
you," and all they've done is flimflammed
us. .

initiate OPA
On Aug. 28, 1941, the United States
government initiated the OPA due to the
Second World War. This stabilized the
prices during the war, price controls. The
OPA was abolished May 29, 1947. During
the Korean War, similar functions were
approved by the Office of Price Stabiliza-
tion. George Bush has said he's a war
president. We are at war in two countries.
Maybe if Congress and the president ini-
tiated the OPA once again, they could sta-
bilize the gas prices.
Gas to go
I found a way to beat the Citrus County
gasoline prices that keep on rising. When-
ever I went to Ocala or Hernando County,
I took two 5-gallon cans with me and
filled them up with gasoline. When I got
home, I've got two 55-gallon drums in my
garage with a pump on it and I poured
the 10 gallons of gas into one of the 55-
gallon drums, and I repeated this every
time I went to Ocala or Hernando County.
Eventually, both 55-gallon drums were
full. I now have 110 gallons that I paid
under $3.50 for. So I have beat the higher
gas prices in Citrus County.
Another secret plan?
A year and a half ago Nancy Pelosi and
Harry Reid - Harry Reid's the head of
the Democratic Party in the Senate and
Nancy Pelosi in the House - said if we
elected them, they had a secret plan to
take care of gas prices. So we elected the


Democrats to take charge of the House
and the Senate. The secret plan so far
has been an increase of over $1 a gallon.
Now Hillary Clinton's running for office
and she also has a secret plan to help us
with gas prices. I don't know about the
rest of you, but I can't stand any more
secret plans because I can't afford to pay
another $1 a gallon. _ . .. ... .. .. _
Demanding supply
I have just read your editorial of today
regarding the "Energy crisis needs real
solution." Well, you treated it on the sur-
face and at the borderlines, but the real
solution - and I hope you will write an-
other editorial - but the real solution is
to drill, drill for oil. Drill in the Gulf, drill
in Alaska, drill in the U.S. Please be truth-
ful.
Taking advantage
It's ludicrous to think that with gas
prices, motorcycles should get the spe-
cial attention like they are. The intended
bill and its fines are an outrageous way of
revenue enhancement. Fines should be no
different if you're on a motorcycle or in a
car. A motor vehicle is a motor vehicle,
two- or four-wheeled. This bill does noth-
ing but take advantage of bikers because
with gas prices, everyone will be riding
soon. Sure, find a way to punish bikers,
just like the wrongful helmet laws. A bill
should never be allowed to single out a
group, yet should be all motor vehicle en-
compassing. I'm sick of apples-and-or-
anges lawmaking.

HER about that for just
a moment
CES Each of us
would have to re-
duce electricity usage by
about 80 percent or more in
our homes, given that the
population will have grown
to 400 million. No air condi-
tioners, dryers, dish wash-
ers, big TVs, deep freezers or
-computers would be allowed
even if they were energy ef-
ficient. Power would have to
be restricted to use for light,
heat, refrigeration of food


and pumping water. Without
drastic government restric-
tions on home use (they
would control your thermo-
stat and electric meter) there
would be no power to run
our hospitals and our indus-
tries and still meet the com-
mitment
Personal use of gasoline
would be cut to enable com-
mercial vehicles enough fuel
to transport goods. Cmnimut-
ing to work by auto would be
severely restricted. In effect,
we would have to walk or
bike to work or move closer
to the job. Hydrogen-pow-
ered vehicles, fuel cell power
and hybrids would help re-
duce the carbon output.
However, the electric power
needed to make hydrogen
and to power batteries comes
from carbon-powered utili-
ties spewing C02 into the at-
mosphere!


We could replace carbon
fuels with alternatives. Solar,
wind, hydro and geothermal
sources could possibly re-
place 20 percent of our
power needs, but no more.
Replacement of carbon fuels
with nuclear energy is the
ultimate solution. But that
would take many decades
and a willingness of the peo-
ple to have a nuclear plant in
their "back yards." Ethanol
and all biofuels, producing
C02 when burned are use-
less in achieving the 80 per-
cent reduction.
All told, based on suspect
computer climate modeling,
we are asked to swelter in
the summer, freeze in the
winter, give up our automo-
-biles, forgo frozen foods and_
restrict use of electronic ap-
pliances. We are to accept a
drastic fall in our standard
of living and watch our econ-


omy shrink For what?
Best "estimate" is that this
would prevent less than 0.1
degree Celsius global tem-
perature rise by 2050, a
change so small as to be
meaningless! Are we ready

Our "leaders," including
Gov. Charlie Crist, need to
address the consequences of
what they are proposing.

to a friend who lives at
least two blocks west of
where the mailbox was.
Curious and cautious, I
took the mail out of the
box - there were at least


10 pieces - and saw that

of it was bank statements,

Continued from Page Cl

That's how the taxpayers of
Cifrus County feel right now.
A while back Citrus County
was a nice comfortable place
to live. Taxes were low and
this was an inexpensive


place to live, work or retire.
Over the last five years,
spending by county govern-
ment has skyrocketed. Taxes
have increased, the cost of
living has gone up and the
local economy has crash-
landed. Insurance rates are
out of sight and the cost of
gasoline is headed toward $4
a gallon..


Sure, the whole country is
suffering right now, but Cit-
rus County has the second
highest unemployment rate
in Florida. How did we end
up being worse off than
everyone else?
The high gas tax, large in-
creases in county spending,
unreasonably high impact
fees and a general lack of un-


derstanding of what is facing
the average citizen is causing
a high degree of frustration.
As the assessed value of
property increased and gen-
erated more tax dollars, the
county stumbled over itself
figuring out ways to spend,
the windfall. Instead of being
conservative and saving for
that inevitable rainy day, the


county hired more employ-
ees, purchased more equip-
ment and expanded its reach.
We expect Congress to be
out of touch with what's hap-
pening on Main Street But
there's an expectation that
local government will be re-
sponsive to what's going on in
our own community.
It's like being bit on the toe


by your own dog.
The solutions for the tax-
payers appear pretty similar to
the big-picture issue of getting
my dog to stop biting my toe.

In 350 words or less, let us
know why you support a par-
ticular candidate or feel a
certain way about a certain
issue. We'll group endorse-
ment letters together and run
them periodically between
now and Election Day.
" It's been a decade-or
.----m- -more since I severed rela-
. tions with tobacco products.
As a light smoker, I never en-
joyed it when others sneered


at me when I lit up and I ap-
preciated my non-smoker
friends who tolerated my
habit
In turn, I've made a con-
scious effort - with a couple
of exceptions - not to be
bugged when friends, ac-
quaintances and coworkers
light up. From a hanging-
around standpoint, I'd rather
have people just be them-
selves rather than itching to
get away from me so they can
have a smoke. No need for
me to be judgmental when
I've done the same thing.
Recently, I've received a


couple items from the
Florida Department of
Health's .Tobacco Free
.Florida campaign. With the
theme "I care, I don't smoke"
the campaign includes items
intended to grab the atten-
tion of school-aged children
and the press.
This past week I received
the comic book "Justice
League - No Smoke Without0
Fire." It was a little bizarre,
. but basically it involves su-
perheroes and delivers the.
message that cigarettes kill
thousands of Floridians an-
nually.


Not surprisingly, I was the
type of kid who this market-
ing effort is intended for. I
was probably in fifth or sixth
grade when I smoked my first
cigarettes but soon fell in
with some healthy-minded
friends and never really got
into the smoking habit until
my late teens or early 20s.
Those interested in learn-
ing more about the recently
launched campaign can go to
tobaccofreeflorida.com.
. Anyway, the first item I re-
ceived from the Tobacco Free
Florida campaign was a bit
more intriguing to me than


the comic book It's a box
shaped like a pack of ciga-
rettes. You flip the lid and it
makes a coughing noise that
lasts for several seconds. It
also contains a flash drive
that has campaign info that
can be downloaded to com-
puter.
Well, Mr. Don't Bug Smok-
ers Brennan was walking into
the office a couple weeks ago
with the pseudo-cigarette
pack in my pocket. The lid
was down but for some rea-
son the wind set off the
coughing sound. As I stepped
up to the entryway where the


smokers hang out, the cough-
ing noise was repeatedly'set
off.
There was one coworker
enjoying a smoke as I passed
by and the crazy coughing
box wouldn't cease.
If I had to guess, she's prob-
ably thinking I was trying to
make a point So much for not
seeming judgmental.

%rnj.'� CO N7Y FLCRNIECOMNAYSNAAY,208 5


What's the deal?
What's the deal on (County Road)
486? The county has spent millions
of dollars making a four-lane, di-
.... vided-median superhighway and
they've choked it down with stop-
lights all through Citrus Hills that
do not work properly, and they've
" got the speed limit at 45 mph when
it used to be 55. Are they using this
strictly for a speed trap? Do they
want to turn the deputies into mo-
bile tax collectors? I guess so.
Turnabout fair play
This really ticks me off. It's about
" * time somebody went out and did
something about these cutoffs in
the center of the highways, and let
the people know that they're sup-
S posed to be used the same way
S" that you use an intersection. You -
stay to the right and you don't sit
and curse somebody out because
they're where they belong and
you're trying to get where they are
when you're not supposed to be
there. Somebody should do some-
thing about it.
Blast from the past
With all the corruption going on
and all the problems going on in
schools and government and the ju-
dicial system and the whole basic
country, many, many years ago
Nikita Khrushchev made a state-
ment that he said communism will
take over the United States without
firing a single shot, and how right
'- he was.
Pocket protector
In response to the Three Sisters
property: I find it amazing how the
Citrus County Chronicle always
wants to put their hands into my
pocket to pay for things. If they're
so interested in saving the property,
S- why don't they dig deep into their
pockets and pay for it? I find it
funny that this property could have
been bought many years ago when
it was cheap. Now all of a sudden
when property magically increased
tenfold, twentyfold, now people

want to go and buy the property
with the taxpayers' dollars. I don't
want the property. I'll never go
there. I don't care about it. Stay out
of my pocket.
Owner-specific legislation
I live beside a (neighbor) who has
a vicious pit bull that he trains to
attack. If we can't ban the pit bulls,
I think that maybe we should ban
the owners.

Tampa in three

the world or different parts of the
world, and local commuting with
trolleys or buses, the same as they
have in other parts of the world?
They can build these high-speed
and local trains and trolleys right
down the center of all these four-
lane highways in the median. Let's
do away with the trails from trains
and go back to trains. This way we
won't need cars.
Bug off


eur l i iana n e n arg o- L- sha n v
eget on the parkway and it's a Why do magazines have to start


March of '09. Do they have to start
pestering people so far ahead of re-
newal time? Bug off, magazines, or
you'll never get me to renew it, no
matter how good it is.
Disgruntled
Slavery exists in every part of the
United States. People work for pen-
nies or less. They have no days off.
When hired, they're told the job is
only for a couple hours a day. Un-
fortunately, this is not true. The job
ends up being five hours or more a
day. Things break down, people are
not compensated for gas, which is
up to $3.60 a gallon. The ones in
charge have days off, a decent pay
and benefits. They are the ones de-
stroying our country. Decent wages
and more for gas allowances and
days off - that is only right for all
people. The worst part is to
threaten people about their jobs,
that others will be happy to do
them.
All's not well
In regards to Monday's paper,
"Use less water or pay up:" Still
don't understand how exactly that is
fair to us in Citrus Springs and the
other areas. My parents, for exam-
ple, have lived in Citrus Hills for 20
years, have had a well, never paid a
dime and never had their water
monitored. In Citrus Springs, for ex-
ample, we are not allowed to have a
well. Therefore, every ounce that I
use is accounted for, where theirs is
not. Also, I have not washed my car
in a year and I have not watered my
property in two years. Don't see
how this is fair. There's got to be a
way to start regulating these people
who have wells who are not paying a
dime for water.

Hospital honors
associates
Oak Hill Hospital has an-
nounced its Star Associates of
April. Each month hospital as-
sociates are chosen in a
process that involves nomina-
tions and voting by their peers,
patients, patient families, and
physicians.
This month's Oak Hill Hospi-
tal "Stars" are:
* Jan Marino, RRT (Regis-
tered Respiratory Therapist)
Jan Marino joined the Respira-
tory Therapy Department in
1998 and has provided our pa-
tients with all aspects of respira-
tory care for 10 years. Jan lives
in Brooksville and boasts a
large extended family. There
are Heidi and Heather, her
daughters, Brittani, 20, Bre-
anna, 15 and Erica, 4 are her
granddaughters, and Daniel, 7,
and Robbie, 9, are her grand-
sons. Jan's nomination came
from a nursing supervisor who
observed that Jan was entering
an elevator on the fourth floor
when she noticed that a patient
was on a stretcher in the eleva-
tor and that the patient was in
respiratory distress. The super-
visor says that thanks to her
quick actions she pushed the
stretcher off the elevator into a
fourth floor room where the pa-
tient actually stopped breathing
but due to Jan's quick action
she survived and was trans-
ferred to ICU. Thanks to Jan's
quick response a tragedy was
avoided. Jan is very quick to
compliment her department di-
rector who she says "makes
coming to work a pleasure. We
have a good time at work."
* Bob Jimolka, RPH
PharmD (Registered Pharma-
cist, Dr. of Pharmacology) Bob
has been a pharmacist in the
HCA system since June of
1982. He began his HCA career
at Largo Medical Center in June
of 1982. In October of 1983 he
served at Regional Medical
Center Bayonet Point. He came
to Oak Hill Hospital in June of
2003. Bob views his job as that
of prescribing and monitoring
antibiotic dosing and prescribing
and monitoring hyperaliminta-
tion feedings along with super-
vising technicians and being a
medication information resource
to the hospital. Bob's nomina-
tion came from associates in
other departments who praised
his ability to be cooperative and
be a member of a team. His
nomination discussed at length
Bob's willingness to go above
and beyond to ensure that pa-
tients received the medications

* Lanna Bartz, RN, Third
Floor Medical Lanna joined Oak
Hill Hospital's third floor in June
of 2007. As a Registered Nurse
her personal philosophy is to
give personal care based on
specific patient need and to ad-
vocate as a liaison for the pa-
tient and family in all aspects of
their stay at Oak Hill Hospital.
Lanna has two daughter,
Cheyenne, 15, and Kiowa, 9,
and one son, William, 5. They
live in Brooksville. Lanna's nom-
ination extolled her special qual-
ities and true concern for her
patients. Her nomination form
stated that Lanna had been car-
ing for a critically ill patient for
some time. The patient was cel-
ebrating her 50th wedding an-
niversary. Lanna brought her in
a small gift, ordered a cake from
the kitchen and arranged for the
staff to sing happy anniversary.
She truly made the patient "very
satisfied." The patient felt ex-
tremely special.. .especially
when Lanna brought a dozen
white roses with gold tips.
Lanna says that she enjoys the
open door policy of her superi-
ors at Oak Hill Hospital and the
"down-to-earth atmosphere."
In making the announcement
Oak Hill Hospital's Chief Operat-
ing Officer Sonia Gonzalez said,
"Dr. Thomas Frist, Senior, our
founder, always believed that
'Good people beget good peo-
ple.' People like Jan, Bob and
Lanna prove that Oak Hill Hos-
pital will continue the legacy."

POWER
Continued from Page Al

Smart-grid technologies
have gotten small tests
throughout North America,
as utilities and regulators
scout how to coax people to
reduce their demand for
power. But there's little
doubt it's coming. The util-
ity Xcel Energy Inc. plans to
soon begin a $100-million
smart grid project reaching
100,000 homes in Boulder,
Colo.
In Milton, an exurb where
dense subdivisions en-
croach on farm fields, a test
with the Tsapoitis family
and 200 other households
reveals what will be possi-
ble - and how much more
work needs to happen.
Tsapoitis uses his com-
puter to visit an online con-
trol panel that configures
his home's energy consump--
tion. He chooses its temper-
S� nature nd - which lights
s'6Qul b.n or off 't' cer-
tain times of the day. He can
set rules for different kinds
of days, so the house might

summer weekdays when his
family is oiut:
S The family can override
:. those changes manually,
whether it's by turning on
the porch light or raising
the thermostat to ward off a
Canadian chill. But the sys-
tem guards against waste. If
midnight comes and no one
'- has remembered to lower
the thermostat and turn off
S the porch light, those steps
just happen.
These little tweaks add
up nicely for another per-
son testing the Milton sys-
tem, Marian Rakusan. He's
saved at least $300 on utility
bills since the program
began in September.
Tsapoitis and his wife, Lisa,
aren't certain of their sav-
ings but say their 2,400-
square-foot home has lower
energy bills than a friend's
1,800-square-footer.
This alone is not revolu-
"- tionary, because -program-
mable thermostats and
other "smart home" con-
trols let people craft similar
resource-saving plans. The
big change here is the com-
bination of these controls
with that blinking amber
light on the switch - where
the grid talks back.
; Milton's local gas and
electricity retailer, Direct
Energy, will set those amber
dots blinking in an emer-
gency. It might happen a
few times in a summer
month. Maybe there will be


congestion in Ontario's
overtaxed transmission net-
work. Perhaps a power
plant will be down for main-
tenance. Or rapacious air
conditioners will over-
whelm electric capacity.
Whatever the cause, at
that moment, this section of
the grid needs a reduction
in demand, fast, or else out-
ages loom.
People in Milton's test are
expected to configure a
"brownout" setting on their
computers, indicating how
their homes should respond
in such a situation. In this
test, Direct Energy also will
enforce conservation re-
motely. It can raise the set.
temperature in a partici-
pant's home by 2 degrees
Celsius in the summer
(nearly 4 degrees Fahren-
heit), reducing its air condi-
tioning load. The company
also has permission to shut
off the testers' hot-water
heaters and electric pool
pumps for four hours at a
time .during these power
emergencies.. .*. t!6S.
. Tsapoitis shrugs at that
aspect of the arrangement.
It's better than rolling
blackouts. Rakusan, how-
ever, says he's not sure he
likes the idea of the power
company tweaking his
home's settings.
Indeed, it appears un-
likely that broad swaths of
the public will accept re-
mote control from the
power company. California
officials recently had to
back away from a proposal
to require remote-con-
trolled thermostats in new
buildings.
So a more likely scenario
is that consumers will get
powerful economic incen-
tives to make those deci-
sions themselves.
Typically we pay a flat
rate for electricity, even if
sometimes it falls below the
actual costs of supplying
power at a given moment. In
a growing number of places,
rates move slightly higher
&in hours that typically are
busiest.
An advanced notion of
this will be tested this sum-
mer in 1,100 homes served
by Baltimore Gas & Elec-
tric. Pricing plans will vary,
but generally the house-
holds will pay the cheapest,
"off-peak" rates most of the
time. Some testers will pay
higher rates every weekday
afternoon. And all of them
will be subject to "critical
peak" periods of even
higher charges, declared on
as many as 12 weekday af-
ternoons with stress on the
grid.


The Maryland utility will
have its own version of Mil-
ton's amber dots. Most of
the homes will get 3-inch-
high orbs that will glow dif-
ferent colors to indicate the
price of electricity: red in-
stead of their usual green,
for example, during critical
peak periods.
Even this will probably be
a primitive step.
Eventually, the smart grid
will let rates fluctuate even
more dynamically, depend-
ing on conditions. That al-
ready happens in wholesale
electricity markets, in
which power suppliers buy
energy from power produc-
ers. Now that would extend
to the retail level - our
homes. The price of elec-
tricity would dip when de-
mand is softest, typically at
night or on mild days, and
rise in periods of strain.
There's only one problem.
"Consumers are not sitting
at home waiting for the lat-
est signal from the power
grid," says Rob Pratt, a sci-
entist with the Department
of Energy's Pacific North-
west National Laboratory.
"To get the kind of wide-
spread response that we'd
really like to have, keeping
it automatic is real impor-
tant."
In other words, appli-
ances designed to interact
with the smarter electric
grid will adjust themselves.
Pratt's lab has already
built and tested controllers
that can make it happen.
And over the next decade,


Pratt expects homes to get
appliance controls with a
sliding scale. At one end
people could choose some-
thing like "maximize my
ease and comfort." At the
other, "save me the maxi-
mum amount of money."
The highest-conservation
settings might lead dish-
washers to start only when
electricity prices are at
their lowest, or when wind
power has kicked on.
When Pratt and col-
leagues. tested aspects of
this in 112 homes in Wash-
ington state, they deter-
mined the average
household's electricity bills
would drop 10 percent.
It says a lot that conserva-
tion would be encouraged
by the very companies that
make money off the use of
electricity. But they have no
real choice.
Electricity use per home
rose 23 percent from 1981 to
2001, according to the De-
partment of Energy. Blame
increases in electronics and
appliances, and our de-
creasing tolerance for
sweating through the sum-
mers. The Census Bureau
says 46 percent of single-
family homes completed in
the United States in 1975
had air conditioning. In
2006 that was 89 percent.
Meanwhile, meeting that
demand is getting trickier.
Raw materials that fuel
power plants are soaring in
price and being eyed more
skeptically by regulators
concerned about air quality


It's EZI


and greenhouse gases. And
that's even before the next
U.S. president, as seems
likely, supports caps on car-
bon emissions.
"We just can't keep build-
ing more coal plants," says
Roy Palmer, head of regula-
tory affairs at Xcel Energy.
So until some bountiful
and clean power source can
be delivered cheaply, elec-
tric utilities are pressured
to extend the generating ca-
pacity we already have.
The effects of well-chosen
reductions in usage - an
idea known as "demand re-
sponse" - can be huge. A
mere 5 percent improve-
ment in U.S. electric effi-
ciency would prevent 90
large coal-fired power
plants from having to be
built over the next 20 years,
according to Jon Welling-
hoff, a member of the Fed-
eral Energy Regulatory
Commission who advocates
demand response.
Demand response isn't
new, but it's existed in low-
tech form. Utilities in ca-
pacity crunches would call
companies and request that
they do something to help,
like idling an assembly line
for a few hours. In some
states, residents can get re-
bates if they let the utility
trigger radio transmitters
on their air conditioners
that cycle the chillers off for
a few minutes in strained
summer hours.
Now though, technology
can do demand-response in
a more sophisticated way


Companies such as Ener-
NOC Inc. have built soft-
ware and sensor networks
that can remotely dim lights
or raise refrigerator tem-
peratures inside busi-
nesses, in an instant. For
homes, upgraded electric
meters can offer near-real-
time feedback on energy
use. And new generations of
appliances and thermostats
can coordinate with each
other and electric meters
over in-home wireless net-
works.
The key hurdle is figuring
out how to pay for it all.
The equipment in Mil-
ton's tests costs more than
$1,000 per house. That will
come down with larger-
scale efforts, and utilities
will save money as net-
worked meters free them
from sending out human
meter readers each month.
But for bigger smart-grid in-
vestments, energy compa-
nies generally want
regulators to let them re-
coup the costs through
higher electric rates. That
can get thorny.
Tsapoitis hopes some
kind of smarter system
sticks after his test ends in
Milton this fall. When asked
why he signed up, he said it
might keep his 4-year-old
son, Brogan, from worrying
about global warming and
other environmental
threats. He pointed to a tat-
too running down his arm
that spells out Brogan's
name in an Old English
font.
