While Citrus County fol-
lows the national trend in the
economic slowdown - most
evident in housing and un-
employment - local busi-
ness leaders say they are


becoming cautiously opti-
mistic about how the county
is positioned for a recovery.
In other words, they say
they are beginning to see the
proverbial glimmer at the
end of the tunnel. That
emerging vision follows a
two-year economic downturn
in business that followed the
bust of the home and prop-
erty boom markets of 2004
and 2005. The housing bust
affected many other busi-
nesses related to the building
and home sales industry. The

Citrus County's unemploy-
mnent rate continued to be
higher than the state average
of 4.7, and higher than the na-
tional average 5.2 percent, as
evidenced by the March sta-
tistics.
The Citrus rate was 6.1 per-
cent, up slightly from Febru-


ary's 6.0 percent and up con-
siderably from March 2007,
which was 4.3 percent The
figures were not seasonally
adjusted.
While Citrus was high in
relation to neighboring
Sumter County, which had 3.4
percent unemployment, it
was in line with Marion
County, which saw 6.0 per-
cent unemployment in
March.
Though the eighth highest
of 67 Florida counties in
March, Citrus was lower,

with the money?
Will you get ahead on your

The Chronicle wants to know
how people plan to spend their
stimulus check money.
The Department of Treasury
began this month sending eco-
nomic stimulus payments to
more than 130 million house-
holds. The idea is to help taxpay-
ers stimulate the economy by
giving them money to spend.
Eligible people will receive up
to $600 ($1,200 for married cou-
ples), and parents will receive an
additional $300 for each eligible
child younger than 17.

account or taking a summer va-
cation - let us know how you

January 2002
The Miami Herald reported a consultant hired by
the Broward County Public School District to help
the district upgrade its technology systems had
"relatives who hoped to profit from the multimil
lion-dollar venture."
Jon Slaughter was hired in fall 2001 to help the
district obtain federal E-rate funds.
"Slaughter's brother and father own a Gainesville-
based business, EduTek, which was lobbying to
provide maintenance and wireless technology to
Broward public schools," according to the article.
School officials said Slaughter did not tell them his
relatives owned EduTek. Slaughter insisted they
knew about his relationship up front, the article
further states.

2006-07
Several Arizona media sources reported the
Tucson Unified School District was being
investigated by federal and state officials
because of long-standing problems with
its technology department, including in-
ternal corruption, and the district's fail-
ure to obtain millions in federal E-rate
reimbursements.
The Arizona Daily Star reported there were
concerns about the district's consultant
used for the 2005-06 school year, Jon
Slaughter, and "possible links to a vendor
he'd recommended for a contract." The
vendor was Trillion Partners. "At the time,
Slaughter said his recommendations
weren't influenced by any vendors, even
though an ad for Trillion he recom-
mended was on his Web site-at the time,"
the article states.
TUSD officials questioned Slaughter about
any possible connections to Trillion. Ac-
cording to the Tucson Weekly, Slaughter
denied any financial ties to the corpora-
tion and said his "estranged brother,
Harry Slaughter Ill, founded Trillion (Digi-
tal Communications) in Birmingham, but
was bought out a couple of years ago."

Armed with what appeared
to be a pipe, a man entered
Rick's Gas Station in Floral
City before noon Saturday to
rob the clerk, but witnesses
helped the sheriff's office
with a speedy arrest
The suspect, Curtis
Dwayne Lewis, 38, was able
to obtain cash from the clerk,
according to Heather Yates,


public information officer for
the Citrus County Sheriff's
Office. But several witnesses
gave a description of the sus-
pect and his vehicle, includ-
ing the vehicle tag number.
Through the tag number,
the vehicle was traced to its
owner, who explained that
she had loaned it to a friend
who had returned it at noon,
Yates said.
With information from the
vehicle owner, the suspect
was apprehended in Mossy
Oak Mobile.Home Park in In-
verness.
The victim identified the
suspect as the person who
committed the robbery, Yates
said.
Lewis was charged with
armed robbery.

consulting company, eRate
Consulting Services (ERC), in
October 2003.
After a competitive bidding
process, school officials en-
tered into a contract with the
Alabama-based Trillion Digi-
tal Communications Inc. in
January 2004, to improve the
school district's wide area net-
work (computer network).
In February of this year, Cit-
rus County school officials
were tipped off about missing
federal reimbursement checks
being deposited into an ERC
bank account instead of being
sent to school district officials.
Soon after, Mike Geddes,
County School District direc-


tor of Technology and Infor-
mation Services, found'an ar-
ticle online about Tucson
Unified School District
(TUSD) while doing research
into the ERC debacle.
In 2006-07, TUSD officials
questioned whether or not
their consultant at the time,
Jon Slaughter, had financial
ties or some kind of relation-
ship with their provider at the
time, Trillion, according to a
few Arizona media sources.
By March 13, Geddes had
called other school district of-
ficials across the state, who
were contracted with ERC, to
alert them ofthe district's ERC
situation and see if they too
were using Trillion. His notes
were obtained through a pub-
lic records request
Geddes' "curiosity" about a
link between Jon Slaughter


Geddes' "curiosity" about a link

between Jon Slaughter and Trillion were

not confirmed, he said ...


and Trillion were not con-
firmed, he said; school offi-
cials he spoke with said they
did not have contracts with
both corporations.
If a financial link was found
between Slaughter and Tril-
lion, it could imply an unfair
competitive bidding process
unbeknownst to school offi-
cials.
Citrus County School offi-
cials are now in the process of
terminating their multiyear
contract, that was renewable
each year up to five years, with
Trillion.
Geddes said their decision


had nothing to do with the re-
cent ERC case. School officials
began the competitive bidding
process for a new wide are
network in December 2007.
"Our decision to go to a new
wide area network (and
provider) is mainly driven by
our need for more capacity,
higher performance and in-
creased reliability," Geddes
wrote in an e-mail to the
Chronicle.
School officials hired ERC
to handle all tasks associated
with the telecommunications
reimbursement process for
Universal Service Fund pro-


gram or "E-rate program."
The consultants applied
yearly on behalf of the school
district for
compensation School
for a per-cent-
age of the dis- began
trict ' s
telecommuni- comp
cations bills;
the federal re- bidding
bates are for a n
called "E-rate
discounts." a1

cations services for the 2004-05
and 2005-06 school years never

cials' hands.

It wasn't that his best
friends and coworkers
couldn't care for him, he
said. They held fundraisers,
sat by his hospital bed and
showered him with get-well
wishes, balloons and sup-
port.
However, Grandinetti said
it was her job as his mom to
bring her baby back home, to
motivate him and nurse him
through the illness.
"We shaved his head a
couple weeks ago,"
Grandinetti said. Jesse was
losing hair from the chemo,
so Grandinetti took him out
back on the porch and
buzzed away.

Luke's love for Ritchie is
evident. He pulls his mother
in frequently for kisses and
hugs. He half verbalizes,
half signs his admiration,
teasing her every chance he
gets.
"He has a good sense of
humor and he's very sweet,"
Ritchie said.
Every weekend they head
to their- favorite breakfast
spots, Jeanette's Little
Restaurant in Floral City or
Grammy's Soul Food
Restaurant in Inverness.
It's a mother-son relation-
ship based on love and
laughter.

Jesse Jokisch, 22, has moved back in with his mother Gail Grandinetti so she can take care of
him while he goes through cancer treatments.


Lecanto and on special days
they head to Taco Bell,
Luke's restaurant of choice.
"I think he was a home-
coming queen in a former
life," Ritchie joked as Luke
waved to every single per-
son who walked passed him.
One moment she makes
him giggle, the next she re-
minds him to use his words
and manners. She has moth-
erhood down to an art form.
It wasn't always that way.
"There have been some


very, very stressful times,"
Ritchie said, especially
when Luke was young.
He faced many obstacles
as a child, was frustrated
and exhibited poor behav-
ior. Ritchie had to learn pa-
tience quickly. She had to
figure out how to communi-
cate with her child.
"I had to drive, a lot. I had
to learn about the services
available," Ritchie said
about her research, ap-
pointments and visits. with


therapists, doctors and edu-
cators.
"I have much better in-
sight into the world of the
disabled," Ritchie said
about her learning experi-
ence. "In fact, I'm drawn to
them. I can see how they're
just the same as everybody
else."
Instead of dwelling on the
difficulties of the past,
Ritchie focused on Luke's
progress.
She talked about how


well behaved Luke is as a
teenager and how she wor-
ries less about him then she
would an average teenager

drive recklessly, or get in-
volved in

She is most relati
proud of the based on

acquired |aug

Still, Ritchie admits, she
tends to be a "helicopter
mom," always hovering, pro-
tecting and watching over
her children, both Luke and
her 22-year-old daughter.

The Floral City mothers
want their sons to live ful-
filled lives.
Ritchie plans to always be
Luke's main guardian but
not to keep him cooped up
at home forever.
"He doesn't need to be

She will take care of him
for a few more years before
integrating him into a group

and Jesse hope for a cancer-
free future; it's a day-to-day

"But we're going to make
it," Grandinetti said. "He's a
fighter."
"She's always been there
for me..now she's going to
push me," Jesse said, chok-
ing back tears.
They paused for a second
to console each other.
"Stay strong and live life
one day at a time," they
said, noting the words they
live by to get through the
rough times.

CTRus COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


An ........LI, l.i 1 1 innQ


FORECAST
Continued from Page Al

county's high unemploy-
ment rate is generally con-
sidered to be at least
partially a result of the
home building market
The business leaders gen-
erally agree with the March
forecast from Institute for
Economic Competitiveness
at the University of Central
Florida that predicts the
surplus in the Florida's
housing sector will bottom
out in the upcoming third
quarter of this year.
The report says the new
home market will come back
slower than resales because
of its precipitous drop off,
and, though it won't see such
a rapid ascent, that market
should be back by 2010 to
what would have been nor-
mal levels without the boom
- or about half the peak
reached in 2005.
This year has been the
slowest in
memory for The cl
builders. "I'd
be surprised Statistic!
if we hit 500" sin
said Citrus 35 sing
County Build- home pe
ing Associa-
tion president April. AI
Mike Moberly,
of new hous- saw
ing starts this
year. Only three years ago,
there were 3,309 permits.
The county's statistics
showed 35 single-family
home permits for April.
April 2005 saw 284. Addi-
tions and remodeling per-
mits continue to increase as
builders and contractors try
to hang on in a comatose
market
While the institute report
says the existing real estate
market is expected to sub-
side a little more in values
and then begin to stabilize
by this fall, Moberley said
new homes starts seem to
have already found their
nadir in Citrus.
"We're already there. I
don't see how it could go any
lower than it is." He said he
agrees with the institute's
forecast and noted there has
been what appears to be a
small amount of activity for
some area builders. 'We're
starting to finally see a few
people coming and kicking
thetire's: It's no big rush, but
they're checking out the


models."
"We'll see where prices
settle and where the interest
rates go," he said and added,
"And remember, this will be
the first year of the early
Baby Boomers."
John Osborne, a longtime
Citrus builder who is taking
over the contracting end of
Rusaw Homes, said he, tod,
thinks the market will begin
to come back slowly this
year, but he said it will be a
very different market, never
like it was at the peak boom.
He said it will be what he
called "uncharted territory."
He added while there was
virtually no activity, it was
ironically probably the best
time anyone could imagine
to buy a new home in Citrus.
Existing homes
On the existing home side,
Keller Williams Broker Tomn
McMurray, president of the
Realtors Association .of Cit-
rus County, said a number of
the realty brokerage houses
were reporting a little more
activity re-
ounty's cently, which
was a good
s showed sign in a mar-
ket that had
e-family slowed to a
crawl.
rmits for For exam-
nril 2005 ple, he said,
"The month
284. of March was
relatively
good for my
office - better than last
March." Whilhe brokered
sales number for the county
was 50 less than last year, he
said, recent activity in pend-
ing sales may indicate that
the market is starting to
change.
"I believe people are
starting to do a little investi-
gating. You can only pen up
demand for so long." He said
he feels a cautious optimism
that the housing market may
be close to its low ebb and
may begin to start moving
again.
He said he expects the
year to wind up being better
than last year. "Everything is
ready. I think it's going to
happen." And he too noted
that the post WW II genera-
tion will begin to play a part
in retirement home buying.
"All those Baby Boomers are
still there," he said.
McMurray said that for the
last two quarters at least
half the. -brokered home
sales were $150,000 or less,

UCF FORECAST FOR FLORIDA 2009-10
* After three years of declines, new vehicle registrations,
reflecting sales, grow slowly in 2009, but total registra-
tions only at 1996 levels. Expect low or no interest fi-
nancing as incentive.
* Personal income growth continues to decelerate to 3
percent in 2009 but then slowly rises to 5.1 percent in
2010.

" "Florida & Metro Forecast 2008-2010," Institute for Economic
Competitiveness, University of Central Florida, March 2008


which he took to be mostly
workforce housing. About 30
percent was $150,000 to
$250,000, and the rest above.
The median price for bro-
kered homes in April was
$124,000, down 8 percent
from March and down 11
percent from April 2007.
As prices settle into their
corrected levels and a more
normal market begins to
prevail, he said, he expects
people's perceptions to
change and activity in-
crease.
Remax Broker Steve Var-
nadoe agreed and said he is
seeing the same things. "It
really seems to have bot-
tomed out," he said, adding
that all recent indications he
is seeing locally in housing
resales show an improve-
ment. He said there was a
consistent increase in pend-
ing sales in March and April,
with the pending sales
matching last April's, the
first time that's happened in
26 months, and he is watch-
ing May to see if it holds the
trend.
He said prices are coming
back to the pre-boom levels,
and with the interest rates,
and a 2,700 inventory of sin-
gle-family homes on the
market, that makes it a good
time to buy, and so he is op-
timistic the trend will con-
tinue.
While getting appraisals is
a bit harder and lenders are
being tighter in the wake of
the mortgage market's prob-
lems, he thinks things are
nevertheless headed in the
right direction. Both think
the county is positioned for
an economic comeback
Foreclosures
Given the national mort-
gage problem and housing
sales nosedive that has been
gripping the nation, it
shouldn't surprise anyone
that home foreclosures in
Citrus County the first quar-
ter of 2008 were three times


what they were in 2006.
There were 132 homes
listed for sale in the Multi-
ple Listing Service adver-
tised as Foreclosure or
Short Sales at the end of
April, the latter being sales
before a foreclosure that
deals with offers less than
the mortgage value. The in-
ventory for April was 3,403,
slightly less than last April's
inventory
But Realtors dealing with
foreclosure sales and bank
owned sales say the current
conditions are part of the
transition that has to take
place following the super-
heated market that saw
prices skyrocket past what
would have been the actual
market values in a normal
market. The too-easy mort-
gages were just gas on the
fire and the fallout was in-
evitable, they say, just more
acute.
Citrus has been weather-
ing that correcting market
for two years, they say, and is
part of the cycle of the hous-
ing market, just a bigger
swing this time. One Realtor
who deals in bank owned
home sales said she viewed it
not as a "bad market" but a
different market that was all
part of the swing back to the
normal market.
Small businesses
And while the foreclosures
are expected to continue for a
while, local business leaders
are beginning to feel opti-
mistic the economic down-
turn is approaching its low
ebb.
Citrus County Chamber
President Joyce Brancato
said the institute forecast fits
what she was seeing and
hearing about the housing
market The hard part for
small businesses in the last
two years has been just hang-
ing on, she said, which is why
the chamber has been em-
phasizing how critical it is to
buy locally.

Some haven't made it, she
said, but now for those able to
hang on, she sees reason for
optimism.
She said with the forecasts
about the housing market and
the prospects like the com-
mitment of Progress Energy
to upgrade its scrubbers and
to expand its operation in the
area, the future looks positive
and she feels the county is po-
sitioned for a recovery.
Crystal River
Crystal River Mayor Ron
Kitchen said despite the
tough times created by pres-
ent conditions, he sees the
economic pendulum moving
back toward a normal market
He said the economy goes
through such swings, and
challenges of harder times
create opportunities for those
who can cope.
As conditions begin to
swing back, the city will be
well positioned to capitalize,
for example, with redevelop-
ment, he said. "We have a lot
of room for infill in the city,"
he said, adding that with the

pact fees.
Reducing fees in the city
makes sense, he said, because
the cities already have the in-
frastructure in place and
don't need, like the county, to
create a lot of new roads and
facilities.
That will allow them to at-
tract infill development and
to allow change of use without
onerous fees. With the new vi-
sion for the city's Community
Redevelopment Area (CRA)
effort soon to be made public,
he said, "We'll have a nice, re-
newed vision for downtown."
He said good, controlled de-
velopment in the city will help
all citizens.
In addition to a revitalized
CRA, the city is investigating
the concept of a city marina
and is leading an effort to put
the Three Sisters property in
public hands, something that
could add a whole new di-
mension to ecotourism in the
city.
"I'm very optimistic and
very bullish for the future,"
he said. "This is an exciting
time for Crystal River."

Ex-manager: O.J. confessed


Associated Press
LOS ANGELES - A memorabilia
dealer who profited from O.J. Simpson
for many years is the latest former
crony to write a tell-all book, this one
alleging a groggy Simpson, high on
drugs, confessed to killing his ex-wife
after he was acquitted.
Mike Gilbert also claims he helped
his former friend wiggle out of the mur-
der charges by suggesting how to bloat
his hands so they wouldn't fit the noto-
rious bloody gloves.
Gilbert's book, "How I Helped O.J.
Get Away With Murder: The Shocking
Inside Story of Violence, Loyalty, Re-
gret and Remorse," is due in stores
Monday. It was released to The Associ-
ated Press in advance.
He said Simpson had smoked pot,
took a sleeping pill and was drinking
beer when he confided at his Brent-
wood home weeks after his trial what
happened the night of June 12, 1994.
Simpson said he went to his ex-wife's
condominium, but did not bring a knife
with him. Simpson told him Nicole
Brown Simpson had one in her hand
when she opened the door
In a soft mumble, Simpson told him:
"If she hadn't opened that door with a
knife in her hand ... she'd still be alive."
"Nothing more needed to be said,"
Gilbert writes. "O.J. had confessed to
me. There's no doubt in my mind."
Nicole Brown Simpson and her
friend Ronald Goldman were stabbed
to death at the entrance to her condo-
minium. The knife was never found.
Simpson's current lawyer Yale,
Galanter said none of Gilbert's claims
are true and that Gilbert is "a delu-
sional drug addict who needs money.
He's fallen on very hard times. He is in
trouble with the IRS."
"I've talked to O.J. about it," said
Galanter, who refused to allow Simp-
son to comment directly because of his
upcoming robbery trial in Las Vegas.
"This stuff not only didn't occur but it's
not factually supported by the evi-
dence."
The accusations on both sides


Associated Press
In this June 15, 1995, file photo, O.J. Simpson grimaces as he tries on one of
the leather gloves prosecutors said he wore the night his ex-wife Nicole Brown
Simpson and Ron Goldman were murdered, during the Simpson double-murder
trial in Los Angeles. A sports memorabilia dealer who profited off O.J. Simpson
alleges the football star confessed to murdering his ex-wife and says in a new
book that he helped him outwit prosecutors with the gloves.


showed that deep wounds persist
In a phone interview, Gilbert called
Galanter "an ambulance chaser and an
enabler and denier for O.J. I know. I
used to do the same thing. I understand
the game."
He acknowledged he has IRS prob-
lems which he says were caused by
Simpson but said, "I could take a drug
test and pass it I highly doubt that O.J.
could."
Gilbert is the second sports memora-
bilia dealer to write a Simpson book
this year Thomas Riccio, who arranged
a Las Vegas memorabilia sale that led
to Simpson's armed robbery arrest,
penned "Busted" last month.
Simpson himself participated in the
controversial book, "If I Did It," which
he claimed was not a confession. It was
withdrawn by the publisher and even-
tually released last year by the Gold-
man family to help satisfy a $33.5
million wrongful death judgment
Gilbert said he continued to repre-
sent Simpson for another decade after
the alleged confession, hawking.items

with his autograph, hiding the profits
and helping Simpson shield his pos-
sessions so they could not be seized by
the Goldman family.
Gilbert also claims that he counseled
the jailed Simpson during his murder
trial to stop taking his arthritis medi-
cine so his hands would swell up and
not fit the bloody gloves in court He of-
fers no proof Simpson followed his ad-
vice or that he was taking any
medicine, but the drama that played
out in court when the gloves didn't fit
was central to Simpson's defense.
The prosecutors in Simpson's mur-
der trial, Marcia Clark and Christopher
Darden, could not immediately be
reached for comment on Gilbert's
claims.
Former Gilbert partner Bruce
Fromong, who was involved in the
Vegas incident, said Gilbert is known
for spinning tall tales.
"Mike makes up a lot of great sto-
ries," said Fromong. "Mike Gilbert has
a ton of skeletons in his closet He's as
dirty as anyone."


Hundreds brawl


at LA. school


Associated Press

LOS ANGELES - A fight
that broke out at a troubled
South Los Angeles school es-
calated into a campuswide
brawl involving as many as
600 students before it was
quelled by police in riot gear.
The melee, which students
said started around noon Fri-
day between rival black and
Hispanic gangs, forced au-
thorities to shut down Locke
High School and keep stu-
dents in their classrooms.
After restoring order, they
rounded up students who'
hadn't returned to class and
separated them by race, hold-
ing Hispanics in the gym and
black students in another
room.
Four people were arrested,
three students for fighting
and one non-student on sus-
picion of possessing a knife,
Los Angeles school district
spokeswoman Susan Cox
said.
Several students were in-
jured and treated at the
scene, but nobody was hospi-
talized, officials said.
Music teacher Reggie
Smith described to the Los
Angeles Times a chaotic
scene where it was difficult
to distinguish between trou-
ble makers and those trying
to avoid the mayhem.
"The kids were crazy, run-
ning from place to place
jumping on other kids,"
Smith said. "Some of my kids
were crying because they
were walking to class with
friends and they got
jumped."


VACATION



TIME!


Victor Wong, an 18-year-old
senior, told the Times the
melee grew out of a fight two
days earlier between two
graffiti gangs. He said His-
panic students who are
friends of his asked him to
participate in a fight planned
for Friday that was to pit 10
Hispanic students against 10
black students.
The two groups met as
planned at the handball
courts, but the fight quickly
spread throughout the cam-
pus, Wong said.
"Security didn't know
where to go," he said. "They'd
concentrate in one spot and
something would happen
somewhere else."
School district police
brought in about 60 officers
to the scene, while the Los
Angeles Police Department
dispatched about 50 officers
and more than a dozen patrol
cars.
Ronald White, a 17-year-
old senior, said that when po-
lice arrived some of the
students began fighting the
officers, who responded with
their batons. Another student
said he saw police use pep-
per spray.
Locke has been marred by
almost daily fights during
much of the academic year,
but students and teachers
said Friday's brawl was the
worst in years.
Joseph Sherlock, a senior,
called it "my first actual en-
counter with a riot"
About 65 percent of the
2,600 students enrolled at
Locke are Hispanic, and 35
percent are black

Inverness
Inverness Mayor Bob
Plaisted said times have
been tough for many small
businesses in the city, but
he. added, "We're going to
weather the storm." The
city is financially sound and
has some good capital im-
provement projects going
on, he said.
He, too, sees the eco-
nomic cycle changing and
said he looks forward to the
city opting for its own im-
pact fees, something that


will help attract new busi-
ness at the right time. Re-
ducing impact fees will help
reduce the vacant commer-
cial space in Inverness, an
indicator of the health of
the city.
He thinks Florida is posi-
tioned better than the rest
of the nation for recovery
Despite the economy, given
all the accomplishments the
city has managed recently,
he feels so good about the
city's position he said,
"There is not a better time
to be the mayor in any city."
The future
Citrus County Economic
Council Director Randy
Welker said he, too, thinks


the economy is going to
begin showing signs of com-
ing back soon, but the down-
turn and its effects should
underscore the need for the
county to have a more diver-
sified economy with more
jobs not so dependent on
the home building industry.
He pointed to the rela-
tively high unemployment
rate in Citrus as an indica-
tor of that weakness.
He said the two cities
going to their own impact
fee schedule made a lot of
sense and he supports it.
Impact fees are some-
thing the building industry
has warned could retard a
comeback - in other words,
if the same housing in Cit-


rus costs considerably more
because of relatively higher
impact fees.
Moberly said current con-
ditions should make it all
too plain to the county com-
mission what happens when
the housing market is
slowed. He thinks the
county is well-positioned for
a comeback but he worries
about the effect of the im-
pact fees levels on housing
and business expansion.
That could hurt healthy
growth, with is crucial to
economic health, he said.
"To be a viable commu-
nity, there has to be a cer-
tain level of growth to
sustain the community," he
said.

Hidden energy leaks could be costing you a bundle


SAVE-THE
EIWATTS GUY
TMS AND iWrS FOR SM MWHY


DearSTW Guy We live in an older
home, so we make every effort to
be as efficient as possible. From
changing out air filters, to setting
the thermostat at a reasonable
temperature, we do what we
can to cut out wasteful habits.
We've made some progress,
but we'd love to get our bills
even lower. Any thoughts?
- Not Efficient Enough

Dear Not Kudos on the efficient
habits! They're a great start to a
lifetime of saving major watts.
Since you live In an older home
and aren't getting the results you


want, I suspect your problem
may be in your attic -in your duct
system. Your home's ducts could
have leaks that let hot or cold air
escape - which can waste up to
one-third of your heating and
cooling costs. To find out if your
home's air ducts are leaking first
sign up for a free Home Energy
Check, during which Progress
Energy will give you customized
efficiency tips for your home. If
it's suspected that your home's
duct system is leaky, they'll even
pay half the cost of the test, plus
the first $150 toward any repairs
needed. Ib get the savings started,


visit savethewatts.com or call
888.302.8348.

Dear STW Guy: I'm fanatical
about saving moneyon my energy
bill. I've made some efficiency
repairs around my house to help
bring costs down, but I want to
do more. How can I shave even
more off my power bill? - Penny
Pincher

Dear Penny: Sounds like
you might be a good fit for
EnergyWise"t a free savings
program from Progress Energy.
Once you're enrolled, you'll be


eligible to receive monthly credits
on your energy bill that could
total more than$145peryeat Plus,
you'll be helping manage lorida's
energy use. lust select the units
(electric water heater or central
heating and cooling system) you
wantenrolled, and the time frame
you want to receive credits, and
' Progress Energy wift install a small
device in your home (usually
located in the garage), at no cost
to you. The device cycles power


off and on to selected units, if
needed, during times of peak
community demand. Because
EnergyWise is designed with
your comfort in mind, cycles are
infrequent and brief, and limited
to select time periods - in fact,
most participants say they never
even notice when cycles begin or
end. So ifyou'relookingforan easy
way to save, I say get EnergyWise.
To get started, just call 866.958.

mark May 17, when we honor all our
veterans and those serving in the
military on Armed Forces Day, and
display the flag that we so valiantly
fought to preserve. And third, the
most important commemorative
day of the year, May 26 - Memorial
Day, when we honor all the fallen
heroes of all past wars.
Many of the local veterans organ-
izations will have special obser-
vances to honor those who have
made the ultimate sacrifice in the
service of their country. One of
those observances will be at 11 a.m.
Monday, May 26, when the Herbert
Surber American Legion Post 225 of
Floral City will have its 34th Annual
Memorial Day Program at the Hills
of Rest Cemetery on U.S. 41 just
north of the traffic light in Floral


City. The Junior Air Force ROTC of
Citrus High and band students will
make the event an emotional one
worthy of the occasion. Nevell An-
derson, a member of the Korean
War Veterans Association, the Ma-
rine Corp League and the Citrus
County Veterans Coalition, will be
the keynote speaker for the 45-
minute ceremony, and everyone is
invited to attend.
The question we ask ourselves
when we think of the sacrifices that
have been made is, "Was it worth
the sacrifice?" Without that sacri-
fice all the freedoms we enjoy and
take for granted could be in jeop-
ardy I think you could ask any vet-
eran that question and you would
get a very resounding "YES!"
Please remember and honor all


of our fallen heroes, the surviving
veterans of our past conflicts and, of
course, those currently serving in
Iraq and Afghanistan during this
month of May by displaying the
American flag and attending the
special services in their honor.
Then we can celebrate the joy of
being an American. May God bless
America!


Larry MacMillan is an 11-year
veteran of the U.S. Air Force dur-
ing the Korean and Vietnam era
and currently serves as the public
information officer for the Citrus
County Veterans Coalition. He can
be contacted by e-mail

WALTER MOORE/Special to the Chronicle
Vinyard Road, Nantoux, Burgundy, France, gives an idea of
the terrain the author will by bicycling this summer.


BICYCLE
Continued from Page A13

in Burgundy's Cote-de-
Beaune.
Now, we must decide when
to ride in the French Bur-
gundy region, what general
locations are best suited for
this endeavor, plus all the
other details.
This is mostly my decision
because my publication
schedule is late in Septem-
ber. I need many color photos
from these new loops, to lo-
cate decent restaurants,
parking places, little-known
historical sites, and the im-
portant toilet locations. After
that data is gathered, four-
teen weeks are needed to
complete the book, so the
dates in France are from
May 28 to June 14.
As to a location, a combina-





- - _ -


tion of interests made our de-
cision. We wanted to return to
the familiar Cote-de-Beaune
area, and find a number of
loops in a new area. Spend-
ing hours driving in the
mornings to start a day's ride
is never a consideration. It is
only good sense to rent the
27-speed bicycles close to the
riding locations. For at least
two weeks, we wanted to stay
in no more than two comfort-
able and inexpensive 'kites"
- holiday cottages.
The second of this series
selects villages, rents cot-
tages, gets us to Burgundy
and chooses where to spend
three necessary extra days.

Today HOROSCOPE


Your Birthday: In the year
ahead, constructive changes will
help you eliminate some bad
habits, and those changes will be
easier to make than ever before.
Now is the time to work on what-
ever you deem detrimental and
purge it from your life.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) - If
you find yourself in a leadership
role, set the example you want
others to follow. Unless you
demonstrate that you're prepared
to do what you ask of them, they
won't do your bidding.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) -
We all make embarrassing blun-
ders from time to time, so if you
should make one today, own up to
it and don't try to cover your
tracks. Others will understand and
help correct matters.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) -
Instead of pretending you can af-
ford what your pals can afford, let
your friends know the activity they
are planning is beyond your
means. Bid them a happy day and
go your own way.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -


Those who usually have the clout
to do favors for you might be pre-
disposed at this time, for reasons
known only to them. Don't place
yourself in an embarrassing posi-
tion of begging for help.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -
Avoid getting involved with an in-
dividual who always makes you
feel uncomfortable. Nothing will
have changed, and you'll only end
up subjecting yourself to an un-
pleasant day. *
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -
Should you end up battling face-
to-face with a shrewd bargainer,
don't delude yourself into believ-
ing you are the one dealing from
strength. You won't even see the
knockout punch coming.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -
You know what is right for you so
don't let a strong-willed individual
intimidate you into accepting his or
her precepts. Reject anything that
does not serve your best interests.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
- Be careful not to blow things
out of proportion and create big-
ger problems for yourself. If you


permit hyperbole to overwhelm
your thinking, it'll end up govem-
ing your actions.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
- By attempting to be more than
you really are, you could play a
game of one-upmanship with
those who intimidate you. The
only thing you'll gain is discomfort.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -
This might be one of those times
when it would be better to yield to
your mate rather than trying to
battle for a 50/50 position when
the situation calls for all or noth-
ing. You'll gain more in the end.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20)- It
is always smart to use kind words
and gentle suggestions when deal-
ing with those who work at your
side. Soft replies will not only de-
flect wrath, they'll spawn allegiance
and good fellowship as well.
Aries (March 21-April 19)- If
you're smart, you'll exercise a
whole lot of self-discipline to con-
trol all extravagant or wasteful
spending. Enjoy yourself, but en-
gage only in activities you can
easily afford.

Chronicle's top Male Athlete of the Year nominees


JOHN COSCIA
jcoscia@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
Narrowing hundreds of athletes
down to your top six is never an
easy task, especially with the talent
level that exists county-wide. It
therefore took the Citrus County
Chronicle a lot of stat searching
and heavy discussion before com-
ing to a final conclusion for this
year's top six Male Athlete of the
Year nominees. We feel that these
six young men are an accurate
cross section of all sports and com-
bine raw talent, on-field success
andstrong work ethic to qualify as
valid candidates.
If you're talking raw talent,
there's probably no better place
to start than with last year's
Male Athlete of the Year,
Crystal River's Ronnie- ...
Baldner. In 2006, Bald- '
ner jumped 6-10 in the -
high jump and won the
Class 2A state title, eas-
ily sealing the deal
as top Citrus
County ath-


lete as the area's only state title
holder. This year, Baldner nearly
repeated the feat with a jump of 6-
8, which was good enough for a sec-
ond place finish in the same event
Equally as impressive this year,
however, was Baldner's perform-
ance on the gridiron, where his
biggest highlight came in the Pi-
rates' playoff game against Willis-
ton where he had 353 total yards, a
state-playoff record, in the Pirates'
5249 win over Williston.
But he didn't do it alone.
He was joined at the hip by his
quarterback, Shay Newcomer, our
second nominee, who was nothing
shordof extraordinary all season
widFhis highlight ieel coming'
against Williston in that same play-
off game. His record-
break ing
-- performance
. H ""\ tin the first
Mi� '^ Xround of
the state
playoffs
I .. **-J *


saw him throw for a playoff record
568 yards in the win with a state
record 620 yards from scrimmage.
But for Newcomer, it wasn't
about being a one-game wonder It
was, instead, his athleticism, grit
and leadership that helped turn his
team from a 2-8 into an 8-2 team
that would go on to win its first
playoff game in several years. His
year-long performance was so im-
pressive, in fact, that he was named
the Class 3A all-state quarterback,
an honor not given out lightly
Sticking with the football theme
brings us our third nominee, Cit-
rus' Antoin Scriven, who rushed for
over 1,400 yards this past season. If
riot for Newconfer's amazing stats
Scriven would no doubt have been
considered the county's best foot-
ball player this year In fact,
Scriven's efforts were so impres-
sive that on Friday the Army nomi-
nated him to the AlI-American
game on Jan. 3.
Puttingthat into perspective, only
400 players nationwide are named,
90 are selected, and here in Florida,
from Daytona down to Sarasota,
only nine players were nominated.
Scriven was one of the nine.
Switching gears from the grid-
iron to the track brings us to


our fourth nominee, Lecanto's pole
vaulter Kirk Dandridge. He was
nothing short of breathtaking all
season as he pole vaulted to
heights unimaginable and never
before reached by a Citrus County
athlete.
His best jump of the year, 15-7, was
good enough for one of the strongest
jumps in the country all year, and if
not for St Thomas Aquinas' Riley
Egan, he would have won the state
title. Truth is that a look at the three
other classifications and one is led
to believe that
Dandridge
would
have
proba-
b ly
been
the
state
title
holder
in Class
LA. Class
2A and
Class 3A.
A n d
while
we 're e


talking state titles, our fifth nomi-
nee, Citrus wrestler Bryant Fisher,
was mere seconds away from a
state title when a questionable call
by the referee sent his match into
overtime. In overtime, again Fisher
looked to have the needed points to
win the title but they were waved
off. Seconds later, his opponent
earned the necessary points for
victory, sealing Fisher's spot as sec-
ond best in the state.
And then there was our sixth and
final nominee, Lecanto's Victor
Cortes, who may be our last nom-
inee but was by no means least
The senior was absolutely
dazzling as the point guard
of the Lecanto Panthers
basketball team that
steamrolled their way to
a perfect 29-0 record and
a No. 1 ranking state-wide
by the end of the regular
season. His leadership,
scoring prowess and
speed in handling the
rock all made this
leader an easy
choice as one of

Rays 2, Angels 0
ST. PETERSBURG - Scott Kazmir
pitched six scoreless innings and the
Tampa Bay Rays beat the Los Angeles
Angels 2-0 on Saturday night to hand
SJoe Saunders his first loss of the season.
One day after James Shields shut out
the AL West co-leaders 2-0 on a one-hit-
ter, Kazmir (1-1) held the Angels to a sin-
gle and two doubles in his second start
since missing all of April with a left elbow
strain suffered during spring training.
Evan Longoria, who won Friday
nights game with a two-run,,ninth-inning
homer, drove in the only run off Saunders.
(6-1) when he grounded into a force play
with the bases loaded in the first inning.
Saunders, trying to become the ALs
first sevpn-game winner, allowed four
hits, struck out three and walked a sea-
son-high four in six innings.
Kazmir, the 2007 AL strikeout cham-
pion, spent the first five weeks on the
disabled list after hurting his elbow
throwing a warm-up pitch for an in-
trasquad game in February. He lasted,
four innings, allowing four runs and six
hits, in a 7-3 loss at Boston last Sunday.
The 24-year-old left-hander walked
three and struck out six against the An-,
gels, who have lost three straight and "
have not scored in their last 18 innings.
Trever Miller pitched the seventh, Dan


Wheeler worked out of a baseseloaded
jam in the eighth and Troy Percival fin-
ished up the combined three-htter for
his eighth save in nine opportunities for


the Rays.

Yankees 5, Tigers 2
DETROIT- Derek Jeter hit his first
homer of the season, Darrell Rasner
pitched six-plus strong innings and the
New York Yankees ended a six-game
losing streak to the Detroit Tigers with a
5-2 victory Saturday.
Rasner (2-0) gave up two runs and
four hits, departing after Magglio Or-
donez's leadoff single in the seventh.
Three relievers finished, with Joba
Chamberlain pitching the eighth and
Mariano Rivera the ninth for his 10th
save. The Yankees had lost seven of
eight against Detroit dating to last
season.
Jeremy Bonderman (2-4) lasted just
four-plus innings in his shorteststart of
the year, giving up five runs, six hits and
four walks.
Bonderman fell back into his pattern
of first-inning struggles, allowing a solo
homer to Jeter, then walking Melky
Cabrera with the bases loaded. Jeter's
homer ended a career-long drought of
128 at-bats to start a season.
"I could really care less," Jeter said
with a smile. "I'm just kidding. I wanted
at least one."
The Tigers pulled to 2-1 in the bot-
tom half on Matt Joyce's first career
homer, but couldn't get much going
against Rasner.

Red Sox 5, Twins 2
MINNEAPOLIS-The Boston Red
Sox got an unexpected power surge
from the bottom of their lineup to help
Daisuke Matsuzaka remain undefeated
with a 5-2 victory over the Minnesota
Twins on Saturday. night.
Coco Crisp and Jed Lowrie hit back-
to-back homers to lead off the seventh
inning - Crisp's first since Sept. 6 and
Lowrie's first of his career - and Mat-
suzaka (6-0) gave up two runs and six
hits with seven strikeouts in seven in-
nings for the Sox.
Mike Lowell and Kevin Youkilis also
hit solo homers for Boston and
Jonathan Papelbon bounced back from
two straight blown saves to get his 11th
of the season.
In his first big league start, Glen
Perkins (0-1) had little trouble with big
boppers David Ortiz, Manny Ramirez
and Lowell in the middle of Boston's
lineup. They combined to go 1 -for-9 with
a single and no RBIs against the lefty,
but the Red Sox got a big boost from
hitters No. 8 and 9 in the order.
Perkins took a 2-1 lead into the
seventh inning before the light-hitting
duo of Crisp and Lowrie spoiled his
evening. He gave up three runs and
nine hits with three strikeouts in six-
plus innings.

Pirates 5, Braves 2
PITTSBURGH -Tom Gorzelanny
shook off Mark Teixeira's two-run homer
in the first inning to shut out Atlanta dur-
ing the rest of his 71-3 innings, Jason
Bay homered and the Pittsburgh Pirates
extended the Braves' road woes with a
5-2 victory Saturday night.
Bay doubled and scored on Ronny
Paulino's sacrifice fly in the second in-
ning, then followed Jason Michaels'
leadoff single with a two-run homer to
left-center in the fourth off Chuck James
(2-2). Paulino added a two-run double in
the sixth and drove in three runs during
Pittsburgh's fifth consecutive victory.
The Braves, who came to Pittsburgh
after sweeping a six-game homestand
against San Diego and Cincinnati, lost
their sixth in a row away from home and
are a major league-worst 4-13 on the
road. The Braves own the majors' best
home record of 14-4.
Gorzelanny (3-3), skipped over for a
start because of a lower back problem,
cruised after a difficult first inning in
which Omar Infante doubled and, after a
pair of force-play grounders, Teixeira hit
an 0-1 pitch deep into the left-field seats
for his fifth homer.
Gorzelanny struck out four and
walked two, following up on a 13-1
win over the Mets on April 30 in
which he gave up one hit over five
shutout innings.

Cardinals 5, Brewers 3
MILWAUKEE - Ryan Ludwick hit a
two-run single with two outs in the ninth -
inning, and St. Louis' shaky bullpen held
on Saturday for a 5-3 victory over the
Milwaukee Brewers that snapped the
Cardinals' season-long three-game skid.
,/Prince Fielder hit a tying homer in the
..eighth inning for Milwaukee, and Ben
Sheets set a franchise record for strike-
outs with 1,086. Still, the slumping Brew-
ers lost for the seventh time in eight
games.
Eric Gagne (1-2) gave up consecutive
singles to start the ninth. After Aaron
Miles hit a 15-foot grounder that ad-
vanced the runners, Gagne intentionally
walked Albert Pujols to load the bases
with one out for Rick Ankiel, who fouled
out. Ludwick grounded a single just past
shortstop J.J. Hardy to give St. Louis a 5-
3 lead.
3Ian Franklin, who took over the
closer role Saturday from struggling
Jason Isringhausen, got three outs for his
third career save and second this year.
The Brewers rallied from a 3-0 deficit
for the second consecutive game. They
scored two runs in the seventh on two
walks by reliever Kyle McClellan and an-
other in the eighth on Fielder's first
homer in 42 at-bats.

Giants 8, Phillies 2
SAN FRANCISCO -Tim Uncecum
threw strikes all day, and San Fran-
cisco's entire offense clicked in Omar
Vizquel's season debut.
Randy Winn hit his first home run of
the year, Aaron Rowand connected
against his former club for the second
time in just more than a week and the
Giants ended a season-worst five-game
skid with an 8-2 win over the Philadel-
phia Phillies on Saturday.
Lincecum (5-1) struck out eight in
eight impressive innings to outpitch 45-
year-old Jamie Moyer, and Vizquel had
three hits and scored a run in a success-
ful return from the disabled list.
Jose Castillo doubled and matched
his career high with four hits, scoring
twice for San Francisco. Dan Ortmeier
hit a two-run double in the Giants' three-
run third and Emmanuel Burriss added a
sacrifice fly in the inning.
Vizquel went 3-for-5 batting in the No.
2 hole, part of a balanced attack by the
Giants. Rowand followed his second-in-
ning homer with a pair of singles and
scored two runs, while Winn also had a
solo shot and two base hits..
Ryan Howard hit a leadoff homer on
the first pitch from Lincecum in the sec-
ond to give the Phillies a 1-0 lead, then
Rowand tied it with his fourth homer
leading off the bottom half. Chris Coste
also homered for Philadelphia, a sev-
enth-inning solo shot.

Cubs 7, Diamondbacks 2
CHICAGO - Alfonso Soriano played
like his old self Saturday.
The Chicago Cubs star had four hits,
including a go-ahead double in a six-run
seventh inning, and showed some flair
on the bases to help the Cubs beat the
Arizona Diamondbacks 7-2.
Kosuke Fukudome's first homer since
opening day capped the seventh-inning
rally as the Cubs won their second
straight against the team that swept
them in the first round of the playoffs last
October.
Entering the game batting .191 and
slowed earlier this season by a calf in-
jury that landed him the on the disabled
list, Soriano twice raced home and
scored with good slides to send the
arrestt crowd f the season at Wrigley
Field (41,597) into a tizzy.
After a strong performance by Dia-
mondbacks' rookie Max Scherzer, the
Cubs trailed 2-1 headed into the sov-
enth when they got to Arizona reliever
Chad Quails (0-4). Mark DeRosa had a'
leadoff single, Reed Johnson sacrificed
and pinch-hitter Daryle Ward dropped
an RBI single down the left field line to
tie the game.

Mets 12, Reds 6
NEW YORK - Carlos Beltran hit a
bases-loaded triple and drove in five runs
to back Johan Santana's first home win
for the Mets, and New York beat the
Cincinnati Reds 12-6 in the first game of
a day-night doubleheader Saturday.
Carlos Delgado and Brian Schneider
hit New York's first back-to-back homers
of the season, helping the Mets score 12
runs for the second consecutive game.
David Wright broke out of a 1-for-13
slump with two hits and three runs. Moi-
ses Alou had two RBIs and the Mets
began a seven-game homestand - a
day after rain postponed the opener -
against last-place teams with an all-
around offensive effort despite being out-
hit by the Reds 15-12.
Mets manager Willie Randolph started
Santana in the opener instead of Mike
Pelfrey, Friday's scheduled starter, be-
cause "I like to get my best going first:' he
said. Santana matched a career high by
gMng up 10 hits, though he never was in
serious trouble until the sixth, when he
needed 38 pitches to get out of the inning.
Ken Griffey Jr. went 2-for-5, missing
his 598th home run by inches when he
hit a drive off the top of the wall in the
eighth inning for a two-run double.
Santana (4-2) allowed Edwin Encar-
nacion's eighth homer in the fourth inning
and scattered five other hits through five.
But he gave up four hits in the sixth, in-
eluding a leadoff triple to Phillips and RBI
singles to Encarnacion and pinch-hitter


Scott Hatteberg. Santana has allowed
10 hits in a game five times, most re-
cently on Aug. 29 for the Twins at Cleve-
land. The left-hander walked one and
struck out five.

NEW YORK - Bronson Arroyo
pitched eight dominant innings to win a
matchuppf struggling pitchers and Jeff
Keppin erhlad a career-high five hits, lift-
ing the CincinnaU Reds over the New
York Mets'7-1 Saturday for a split of their
day-niglit doubleheader.
Ken Griffey'Jr. had two hits and an
RBI in the nightcap, but remained stalled
in his bid to become the sixth player with
600 home runs - he is homeless in 59
at-bats. He missed No. 598 by inches in
the opener when he hit a drive off the
top of the wall for a two-run double that
earned him a start in the second game.
Arroyo struck out the side in the first
and immediately put to rest any thoughts
of a repeat of his awful start a week ago,
when he gave up seven runs in the
shortest start of his career- 1 1-3 in-
nings.
The Mets loaded the bases with one
out in the second but Arroyo struck out
Ramon Castro, and pitcher Mike Pelfrey
(2-3) flied out to right fielder Griffey, who
made a basket catch on the run.
Griffey had an RBI single an out after
Ryan Frel doubled to lead off the game.
The Mets tied it in the third when David
Wright hit a run-scoring single an out
after Jose Reyes doubled.
The Reds took the lead in the sixth on
Hatteberg's double, scoring Keppinger.
Hatteberg drove in Keppinger again in
the eighth with a single off Duaner
Sanchez. Paul Bako added an RBI sin-
gle in the eighth to make it 4-1.

stamps
he stamp machine has
been taken out of the
Crystal River Post Office.
I'm not kidding.
I went to the post office at 7
a.m. Thursday to buy stamps
so I could mail some Mother's
Day cards and possibly get
them delivered on time.
But the post office wasn't
selling stamps that day.
A rough piece of plywood
was nailed to the wall where
the stamp machine once
serviced the happy people of
Citrus County.
Now, tacked to the piece of
plywood, is a very long single
spaced memo written by a
U.S. Postal Service official
explaining that the stamp
machine has repeatedly mal-
functioned and therefore has
been permanently removed.
Instead, the memo read, citi-
zens will have to visit be-
tween 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.'and
stand on a very long line to
purchase stamps from a liv-
ing U.S. Postal Service offi-
cial.

She died in July 1982, one

D before I rolled into CitrusC ounty


n in my white Forda Escort more
than 18, years ago, a tradition
had been established that I couldn't
have foreseen becoming a part of.
That tradition was little Tobey

worked in the Chronicle newsroom.

"I'm sure glad you are my best
friend ... I'm not sure who else
would put up with me!"
This last line in a recent e-mail
made me stop and think (OK, a
few tears came to my eyes, too).
Why would I not put up with
you? Isn't part of friendship tak-
ing the good with the bad?
The definition of friendship,
according to Wikipedia, is "co-
operative and supportive behav-
ior between two or more
humans." In the world of Tobey


- population 1 - there are five
major parts of friendship among
lots of little parts, and my rela-
tionship with my best friend
meets all of these criteria - and
then some.
Communication: Speaking
and listening have to be present
in order to have positive com-
munication. I am able to say any-
thing to my best friend, and I am
confident the same goes for her.
Having someone you can be to-
tally honest with is a ... relief. I


don't have to pretend or cover
up. I can just be me and say what
is on my mind and know she is
listening with an open heart and
mind.

ion reunion. It
tting for us to espe-
mmemorate this year
e year in which most


members of the
class of '63 turn
63.
Let me digress
for a moment:
Cheryl and I did
not go to school
together; she
graduated with
the Hernando
rannen High School class
LICE of 1966.
At times I find
LIFE myself wishing
we'd been class-
mates, because I'd like to be-
lieve it would've been love at
first sight even then. I fanta-
size about how we could have


always been a couple, avoid-
ing altogether the angst-in-
spiring aggravations which
were a part of the adolescent
mating ritual.
My sweetheart doesn't
agree; she believes timing for
us was perfect and that had
we known each other earlier,
I might have been one of her
aggravations!
Maybe she's right. By the
time we met, I was using de-
odorant on a daily basis and
was no longer pulling pigtails
or throwing spitballs.
' Be that as it may, each year
it becomes more apparent
that if they'd had a choice, my


classmates would've opted
for Cheryl instead of me.
In high school, I was ob-
noxiously outgoing, usually at
the forefront of whatever
project we were undertaking.
Not only that, I was the only
boy named "Fred" in my
graduating class. There's no
way to put this as modestly as
I'd like, but it's fact - every-
body knew my name.
When we first began to at-
tend the annual reunions, the
love of my life was usually
identified as "Fred's wife,
Cheryl."
As the years have passed,
she has become the one who


is warmly received when we
arrive. Nowadays, we are
greeted with, "Hi, Cheryl!"
If I'm lucky, after several
moments of MY classmates
fawning over her, I get the
cursory acknowledgement,
"Oh, hey, Fred."
I fully expect the day will
come when my classmates
won't remember me at all -
I'll become known to them
only as "Cheryl's husband,
old what's-his-name."

question it's hurting, but
stopping is certainly an
overstatement). Finally, that

Hillary's former campaign
chairman, Mark Penn. He

Bill Clinton. He started out
as Sen. Clinton's biggest
asset, but has turned into

mer preacher, many blacks,
young people and upper-in-
come voters are not turned
off. They want change and
they will put up with a lot to
get it.
In looking at the liabilities
of the candidates, they felt
1McCain's age and health are
big factors, especially if
Obama is the Democratic
nominee. Obama's biggest
problem is that the public
does not really know who he
is and he has yet to take a
position on many key issues.


With Hillary Clinton the
problem is reversed - peo-
ple know too much about
her. In describing the cam-
paign, they said: "You could
look at McCain's campaign
as the last campaign of the
19th century, Hillary's cam-
paign as the last campaign
of the 20th century, and
Obama's campaign as the
first campaign of the 21st
century."
In analyzing the reporting
of the race, there was a feel-
ing that a lot of what was re-
ported was what people
believed would happen, and
not what was happening.
There is an underlying deep
concern over the threat of
violence during the cam-
paign, especially to Obama.
The Secret Service has pro-
vided more protection to
Obama earlier than ever be-
fore.

"You may differ with my choice, but not my right to choose."
- David S. Arthurs publisher emeritus


- LETTERS to the Editor -


Suppressing votes
This letter was sent certified to
Ginny Brown-Waite, as of this date
it has been unanswered.
Dear Ginny Brown-Waite:
Thank you fdr your letter, but let
me remind you ,of Constitutional
Amendment 14. "This amendment
guarantees no State will make or
enforce any law which will abridge
the privileges or immunities of cit-
izens of the United States."
H.B 537 suppressed some individ-
uals' rights, including myself.
The Democratic presidential
primary vote doesn't make every
American equal, since voice/vote
was eliminated and the State of
Florida enforced it! This is also in
violation of the 15th amendment
which states, "United States citi-
- zens have a rightto vote and that
right will not be denied or
abridged by the United States,"
and furthermore congressional
power to enforce this article by ap-
propriate legislation would never
include extinguishing the Ameri-
can voice.
Since when was there a law that
took away any one American's
rightto vote? Representatives re-
sponded unconstitutionally, if they
voted for any law that would over-
ride constitutional laws, and
whether they voted for it or did not
stop it, these types of events/issues
are actually what you, as well as

What a shame and disgrace to
you driving a tan SUV on.
Spartan Avenue on Thurs-

You stopped and took my

Thanks, all


I would like to thank the people

you guys did. To all the people that
offered to help my family: I would
like to thank you all very, very
much, but my kids' bikes were re-

Where memories live
- Thank you, Fountains Memorial
Park, for the services rendered for
ET, my 18 1/2-year-old pet Chi-
huahua.
ET was my only companion for
one and a half years after his mas-
ter's death. My husband and I
adopted him at age 5 and re-
trained him. He was very protec-
tive of us, loved to travel in our
motor home and played with other,
dogs and cats his size.
The memorial service at the
Fountains park included a poem,
"Over the Rainbow Bridge,"
prayer and releasing a balloon be-
fore laying him to rest
Thank you for memories which
will live on.

Compounding mistake
Suncoast I toll road was a mis-
take. Now the DOT wants to com-
pound the mistake by extending it
and ruining Citrus County.
Wake up people! The only ones
to benefit from this are the out-of-
town developers, the mining inter-
ests and Progress Energy. Once
this ugly road has split our county,
it will be too late.
The elections in August and No-
vember are vitally important All
of the members of the county com-
mission are in favor except one,
Joyce Valentino. The other four
need to go. In fact, this vital issue
should be put on the ballot for the
people to decide, not just five peo-
ple. Next year they are going to de-
cide to build or not build.
Do we want to see our area
turned into another Tampa or do
we want our way of life preserved?
It's up to we the people who live
here to take action before it's too
late. Join COST.

IN THE LEGISLATURE


Some steps forward,



some back in session


The 2008 session of the
Florida Legislature was
dominated by the demand
of an austere budget as a result
of the economic downturn.
Given the old joke that no man,
woman, child or domesticated
animal is safe when the Legisla-
ture is in session, perhaps we
ought to be appreciative that
lawmakers passed the budget
they did and did not go into spe-
cial session.
We will see what THE 1
the governor does
with it, but we sure The 2008
hope he doesn't sess

sahowitzka sewer OUR 01
and water project
money or the A mixi
Florida Forever in a very
funds. Since Sen.
Mike Fasano is a
buddy of Gov. Charlie Crist, we'll
assume that the money Fasano
got for the county is safe.
But this project is by no
stretch of the imagination pork.
It is not, as a former governor
thought, a turkey for the county,
but rather a matter of public
health and welfare, not to men-
tion protection of the state's re-
sources.
If the Florida Forever funds
are secured for it, they may help
the effort to take the Three Sis-
ters Springs property off the de-
velopment menu - something
that will pay back local, state
and federal environmental divi-
dends forever. That's a serious
investment, not pork.
The rest of the 2008 legislation
is a mixed bag and may depend
on your point of view on whether
it's good or bad, though services
and programs took cuts left and
right. Some, as always, will have
unintended consequences that
you can bet the Legislature will
be addressing in the next ses-
sion.
Notably the school system will
feel the budget pinch in a big
way, but it could be worse. Some
counties to the south are talking
about layoffs and extreme cut-
backs. In the end, just about
every entity that derives money
from the state will feel the same
economic pinch this year that
residents are feeling in their
lives.
INSURANCE
One of the failings of the Leg-
islature was that it didn't come
up with any answers to the con-
tinuing insurance crises in
Florida. It did freeze Citizens'
state insurance rates through
Jan. 1, 2010, and doubled fines
for unfair trade practices in the
insurance business. At this
point, though, assailed property
owners will have to continue
bearing the costs and pray that
we don't get a bad hurricane -
or the unthinkable, a series of
hurricanes - this year because


the taxpayers will be on the
hook for it.
The Legislature also passed a
law that insurers would have to
give notice before dropping
more than 10,000 policies in a
year.
The Legislature voted to bor-
row $250 million from Citizens to
fund low-interest loans for start-
up insurers - we sure do hope
there is some oversight here -
and with a bold ini-
U E tiative it created a
$SUE: state commission to
legislative study state-run in-
ion. during.
It did add a no-in-
'INION: terest loan program
to the state hurri-
d bag cane mitigation
ean year. program for home-
owners.
EDUCATION
In addition to cutting funds,
the Legislature did spend some
energy on education. On the pos-
itive side, it reduced the empha-
sis of FCAT results in high
school grades and moved the
exam dates later into the year.
It also strengthened penalties
for misconduct in relation to
teacher ethics. Middle schools
will be required to provide 30
minutes of physical education a
week. It also passed an anti-bul-
lying law requires schools to ban
harassment of students. What
have we come to when this stuff
has to be law?
Finally, the Legislature ex-
panded by $30 million a year the
corporate income tax credit
scholarships that give students
tuition for private schools.
TheLegislature failed to give
schools more flexibility to meet
class-size requirements and
wasted the taxpayers' time in
debating evolution, followed by
some real quality time spent de-
bating a ban on students expos-
ing below-waist underwear in
school.
While it failed to force schools
to spend at least 65 percent of
operating budgets in the class-
room, that issue was put on the
November ballot by the Florida
Taxation and Budget Reform
Commission.
ELECTIONS
An attempt to end taxpayer fi-
nancing for qualified statewide
candidates rightly failed, as did
another, measure that might
have had some merit. That was
an attempt to open primaries to
all voters when all major party
candidates are from the same
party, regardless of write-in can-
didates.
ENVIRONMENT
On the energy side, it did es-
tablish the Southeast's first gas
emission market and extended
the Florida Forever land-buying
program for 10 years. It banned
dumping sewage off the state's


east coast, which might have
been applauded, but it delayed
the ban until 2025.
Under the go-figure category,
it banned local governments
from banning those ubiquitous
plastic bags.
Finally, to its discredit, it
failed to close loopholes that
allow changing growth manage-
ment plans to accommodate de-
velopers.
HEALTH CARE
In health care, to the gover-
nor's credit, the Legislature cre-
ated a low-coast insurance plan
for low-income Floridians,
which is at least a start to get
people some help.
It also streamlined the rules to
make it quicker to build new
general hospitals, a process that
needed fixing because of the
costly, time-consuming suits it
encouraged.
Finally, it gave religious
groups that provide access to
health care an exemption from
being regulated under insur-
ance codes.
OTHER
To its discredit, and contrary
to the interests of commercial
property owners and their
rights, the Legislature passed a
law that prohibits employers
from banning employees from
keeping guns in their vehicles
when parked on company prop-
erty during work hours.
On the other hand, it passed a
law for property owners that
limits the assessment practice
known as the "highest and best
use" in which commercial prop-
erty is valued at its future poten-
tial, not the current use.
In no holiday mood, the Legis-
lature shot down proposals for a
two-week gas tax relief period, a
one-week back-to-school-
supplies tax holiday, and a 12-
day hurricane tax holiday.
In a groundbreaking piece of
legislation, lawmakers passed a
bill to require drivers to stop
when pedestrians are in the
crosswalk. In Florida it was pre-
viously legal not to stop for
pedestrians?
Our legislators also replaced
the "Old Folks at Home" state
song with "Where the Sawgrass
Meets the Sky" because of per-
ceived racially offensive lyrics
in the former, and named the go-
pher tortoise as the official state
tortoise, though it wasn't that in-
ventive or pioneering. Maybe no
one told them Georgia made the
gopher tortoise the state reptile
almost 20 years ago.
Finally, though it would puzzle
a foreigner who had no knowl-
edge of our zoning ordinances,
homeowner association rules
and subdivision covenants, leg-
islators gave homeowners the
right to fly the U.S. flag on a
free-standing pole over their
home.

countless tax breaks, grants
and incentives to reduce en-

All of these will be "gamed"
by the clever people who
know how to use the laws to
make money at taxpayer ex-

cost of generating power
and, so far, has not been ef-
fective in reducing emis--

There's lots more in this
bill, but you get the idea. It
adds to the witch's brew of
legislation already on the
books to save the planet from


the evils of using energy. I
believe the authors wrote it
in a manner that legislators
would accept as good for the
state and not posing any
threat - assuming legisla-
tors bothered to read it.
What this bill really does
is burden every homeowner,
businessman, manufacturer
and farmer with a huge in-
crease in the cost of electric
power. And it guarantees
Florida will be short of
needed power to support
projected growth. Manufac-
turers who are heavy power
users will be pushed out of
Florida taking with them
jobs and tax revenues. There
will-be brownouts during the
hottest summer days!
Our governor and legisla-
tors should have checked out
California, where all these
energy restrictions have
been on the books for years.

They are energy short, im-
porting most from other
states. They have the highest
cost power in the country.
Rolling brownouts are rou-
tine. Industry is fleeing the
state. Only Hawaii has
higher gas prices. Is this
what we want for Florida? Al
Gore and the "global
warmists" will be pleased.

and I divorced after 22 years
of marriage. She and Erin
moved to Cape Coral, near
Fort Myers. Erin turned 13
just last Wednesday.
r Mom, though, stayed close.
Let me explain.
Early in my divorce
process, during a particu-
larly difficult time, I went to-
Mass one Sunday morning. I
sat in the front row at St.
Scholastica Catholic Church,
way off to the side. I listened
to the readings and the ser-
mon. Nothing was sinking in.
I went to communion and
returned to my seat, kneeling
in prayer. I started thinking
of Mom. I told her I was lost
-adi-didn't-know what to do.6
Suddenly a woman return-
ing from communion sat next
to me, put her arm around
my shoulder and whispered,
"The 'Lord loves you and he
listens to your prayers."
I looked into her eyes and
said thanks. I'd never seen
her before and I haven't seen
here since. But I felt God's


presence in my life for the
first time. My mom made
sure of it.
That takes me to last June.
At that time, I had nearly a
year in a 12-step alcohol re-
covery program. In recovery,
I sought and accepted God's
forgiveness for my many sins,
I felt his.peace in my heart.
We learn in recovery to share
what we have. I prayed for
others to have the same
peace from God in their
hearts that I have in mine. ,
One day when I went to
pick up Erin in Ellenton -
the halfway point between
Citrus and Lee counties -
for our weekend together,
Jean said she had a box for
ie. I opened the box at home
and it was filled with a bunch
of stuff from college and high
school. I had forgotten this
junk even existed. How-it
ended up in Jean's garage in
Cape Coral is a mystery.
I rooted through this stuff
and found the program from
my mom's funeral Mass. It


was an amazing discovery.
A few days later I was still
going through items in the
box. I opened a cardboard
envelope that contained my
college transcripts. I shook
the container and out
plopped a small greeting
card. It was in an envelope
with my name on it, written
in my mother's handwriting.
The .envelope was un-
opened.
I stared at it for a moment.
There was no date, no ad-
dress on it. The card must
have been tossed in with
other items that she mailed
to me.
I opened the envelope, On
the cover was a drawing of a
cat with a mouse atop its
head. "Got you on my mind,"
was the message inside.
Mom had written a note to
me as well. She mentioned
the hot weather. She said she
and Jean had been shopping
to buy me clothes. There was
also a reference of gathering
addresses. Though there was


no mention of the wedding, I
could quickly see that was
the point of asking about ad-
dresses.
She signed the card with
love, calling me by a special
childhood name that I had
long, long forgotten.
Then I had this stunning
thought: Mom sent this card
to me 25 years ago, probably
a month before she died. And
now I was opening it for the
first time.
I fell to my knees, clutching
that card, thanking God for
this extraordinary, precious
gift
It's Mother's Day,.and I'm
missing my mom. I shouldn't,
though. She's right here.
She's been right here all
along.

Verify meter
I agree that those that use
the most water should pay
for it. But before fining a resi-
dent, someone needs to ver-
ify the read on the meter. I
live in Sugarmill Woods. You
would not believe how many
times my meter was misread
and I was given a credit.
Once I did not have to pay a
bill for four months to catch
up for the credit from a mis-
taken read.
Bigger boxes
This is the second time I
have been to the post office
in Inverness to drop off my
S mail outside and the boxes
have been overflowing. The
mail's just sticking out. You
could reach in and take it all
with it half full up there at
the top. It's terrible. I called
the post office and they said
they'd go out and get it the
last time I called: But don't
they realize Citrus County is
growing? They need-bigger
boxes outside. This is isn't
safe for our mail we deposit.
It's a disgrace. You can see
everybody's envelopes and
letters and everything just
way up at the top hanging
out. Something should be
done about it.
Bad ad?
It's Thursday, May 1, and
on the page of A5 of the
Chronicle there is an adver-
S tisement.. .There was a pic-
ture of a mother holding a
small boy's face, pinching it
with her left hand and a
raised right hand made into a
fist with thumb extended and
tip of her tongue showing, as
if to lick the thumb before
striking the child. I find the
ad and caption, "It's time to
forgive her," offensive to all
children who are, or have

Editor's note: The mother in

is an awful good thing to look
into.
Waste of gas
Will someone contact who-
ever needs to know that if I'm
sitting at 2 o'clock in the
morning at the light at Ozello,
why is it red when there's no-
body coming? It should stay
green on (U.S.) 19 instead of
having to stop and waste gas
when there's nobody coming
on Ozello. It's not that big of
a road. It should not have a
timer; it should have sensor
so it does not turn red when
nobody's coming and I'm
wasting gas at $4 a gallon.
Rne spine
It sure is refreshing to see
that there is at least two
county employees that have a
spine, and their names are
Anthony Schembri and the
councilman or commissioner
from Floral City.
What the devil?
They took the word "Devil"
out of the Devil Rays ball
team. What next - devil's
food cake? ... I can't under-
stand why they'd take it out.
The ray is still on their sleeves.
It's also known as a manta ray,
but commonly called a devil
ray. So why did they take it out
of the baseball team name?
Better dressers
When I watch TV if there's
a western on, I automatically
put it on because I love the
way the women dress in
those movies compared to
the way they dress today. I
guess that's my own opinion.
Hot box
What is wrong with the air
conditioning at the mall? I
had to leave when it became
too hot to shop. Come on,
mall. Fix the air conditioning.

Two of the three blades of an old
boat propeller were scraped and
twisted. The third blade was bro-
ken off.
Brandishing the wrecked rotor,
the owner of a start-up boat build-
ing business in Homosassa illus-
trated how he had a problem to
solve. r
As "just an idea to get back and
forth to my island without destroy-
ing a propeller every day," Joe
Finn began researching and de-
signing a boat that would be
friendly to the environment and
more fun to fish from.
Finn has come to designing his
prototype after years of experi-
ence.
"I did a lot of restoration on old
wooden boats," said Finn, who
moved here five years ago from the
Outer Banks of North Carolina.
What Finn has come up with is a

"Some of them have lasted for 40
years," Finn said.
The company is known for manu-
facturing environmentally compat-
ible equipment
The boat has a semi-planing hull
for medium-speed range.
Protecting both manatees and the
grass beds was another design goal.
A computer-aided design pro-
gram told Finn to try a small pro-
peller.
"I suspect it won't work, and I
have space to install a larger one,"
Finn said.
The 10-inch propeller is well pro-
tected by a large foot or sole plate.
It does not protrude below the boat,
allowing it to clear manatees and
debris.
Finn took a 1940s design, but
made it longer and wider for mod-
ern-day demands for his 21-foot pro-
totype.
"Similar boats have been made
and perform very well," Finn said.
Recently, Finn went to Cortez,
near Bradenton, to see a show by
professional boat builders, and got
good feedback for his design.

Fishing event was a success


Those final words that Weigh
Master LarryTriana speaks
everyyear at the Annual CCBA
Family Fishing Tournament
bring a strange combination of
fear and excitement to those
whose names grace the official
weigh in board as they wait to
see if any last stragglers have
made it past the committee
checkpoint with that one mag-
ical catch that might knock
them out of their coveted spot
on the pay off list
On the weekend of April 18
and 19, the 13th annual CCBA
Fishing Tournament, one of
the biggest and most popular
in the county, hosted 109 boats
and over 250 total anglers
searching the waters for the
heaviest fish in any of 6 cate-


gories that paid out a total of
$10,750.10 in cash prize money
The beautiful, fun filled week-
end sponsored in part by Pro-
Line Boats and hosted by the
Plantation Golf Resort and Spa
even turned up a new tourna-
ment record when a redfish
with an amazing 93 spots was
brought in to take the 1st Place
position in its category.
The Citrus Chapter of the
Coastal Conservation Associa-
tion brought the weekend to a
perfect end when they
awarded the youth division
prizes to each and every one
of a whopping 46 youth partic-
ipants on Sunday afternoon.
Possibly drawing an even big-
ger crowd then the adult
awards that took place after-


ward, the youth participants
were able to learn a multitude
of fishing and safety related
lessons as they took advantage
of the learning stations of-
fered by CCA before they re-
ceived their participation
prizes and awards on Sunday
afternoon.
The CCBA Annual Fishing
Tournament is successful due
to the efforts of its committee,
sponsors, prize and goodie bag
contributors, and the volun-
teers that physically make
everything happen.

is a fantastic idea." He said.
"Now we'll see if it works
right."
As he was making his de-
sign, Finn said, "The green
aspects became obvious."
Looking for fuel economy,
he said, "The diesel motor 6-
gallon tank will take you 200
miles. And it's friendly on the
grass beds."
Finn is not using poly-
esters because," he said,
"They are unhealthy for peo-
ple and the environment"
He uses epoxies that are not
toxic, tape and Xynoll cloth
because it has greater abra-
sion resistance than Kevlar,
and has two layers on the
hull.

Its speed is 15 knots cruise,
22 knots top speed. It weighs
1,100 pounds. It puts no ex-
haust into the water as bilge
discharge water is filtered.
As a start-up company,
Finn is working with SCORE
and the small business
school in Gainesville, he
said. He's trying to keep the
boat cost below $50,000.
Finn plans to perfect this
model, then design a deck
boat and pontoon boat
"People around here like
pontoons so much," he said.
As for the Oyster Cracker:
"It's a good boat for catching
red fish and trout. It's built
for the rocks in Ozello and
Chazz."
As for his business plan,
Finn said: "We are dedicated
to minimizing the impact on
the environment. We love the
green idea, so we're jumping
on it"

Greener grass
Two local businesses have
teamed up to offer the home-
owner a system called ferti-
gation that saves water,
fertilizer and gardening ef-
fort. Farms and golf courses
have been using fertigation
for some time. It simply
means putting fertilizer in
the sprinklers.
The fertilizer offered by
Ron Romanelli is organic
and used in small doses.
His company, Paramqunt
Supply, sells his products
through Citrus Equipment
and Repair Inc. in Crystal
River, he said.
The organic fertilizer is
less wasteful and has fewer

nitrates, said Ted Pernu, who
owns Citrus Equipment It is
90 percent absorbed, rather
than 20 percent to 30 percent
as with regular fertilizers.
"It's new to the area,"
Pernu said. "It's only been
around for two or three
months. I wholesale it to irri-
gation installers and lawn
guys, but I'll sell it at retail to
do-it-yourselfers."
With the tools and know-
how, a homeowner can set up
fertigation, Pernu said.
"You can adapt it to one of
your lines in your current
system," Pernu said. "You
can cut a pipe and put a fit-
ting in, which is easy even for
the not-so-savvy yard per-
son."
In addition to cutting back
nitrate runoff, fertigation
uses less water, Pernu said.
"It reduces the need for ir-


rigation because it feeds the
roots of the plant and makes
it more drought tolerant,"
Pernu said. "It's kind of a
win-win thing."
Many irrigation installers
offer fertigation, and Pernu
said he refers customers to
their nearest installer.
The phone number is 795-
6635.
The Citrus County Exten-
sion Services would like
homeowners who are consid-
ering installing a fertigation
system by themselves to first
discuss the plan with a mas-
ter gardener or a staff mem-
ber of Florida Yards and
Neighborhoods, as consider-
ations should be made for
water pressure and types of
grasses and plants that
would be fertilized.
The phone number is 527-
5700.

Tips to save water laside...


lorida's sandy soils mean
that plants may experience
drought stress after only a
few days without rain or irriga-
tion. So how do you keep your
plants alive while following the


water management dis-
trict's watering sched-
ule? Here are a few
guidelines.
0 Establish land-
scape priorities. If you
have high-maintenance
and drought-sensitive
plants, water them first
Grass should be a lower
priority - it can be
trained to be fairly
drought-tolerant (espe-
cially bahiagrass and
centipedegrass), and is
cheaper to replace than
trees and shrubs.


Joan Brt
FLOR
FRIEI
LIVI


* Consider replacing drought-
sensitive plants with more
drought-tolerant species. Choos-
ing drought-tolerant plants when
replacing plants or adding new
plants to the landscape can help
you save money and conserve
water
* Mulch planting beds and areas
around trees and shrubs. Mulching
helps the soil retain moisture,


moderate soil temperature, and
keep weeds down. The mulch
should be about 3 inches deep.
* Turn off automatic irrigation
systems during cool winter
weather and rainy summer
weather. Run your irri-
gation system only
when your landscape
really needs the water.
Examine your irriga-
tion system and repair
leaks promptly. Hand
water when possible, or
consider using drip ir-
rigation. (The water
adshaw management districts
IDA- do not restrict the use
DLY of drip irrigation and
NG other types of microir-
rigation, at least in non-
lawn landscapes.)


* Irrigate plants only when they
need it (drooping leaves or a
change in leaf color are good indi-
cators). Many trees and shrubs can
survive drought without irriga-
tion, provided they are well estab-
lished and were healthy prior to
the drought.
* Don't fertilize or, if you do, use
low-nitrogen and low-phosphorus

Question about Wedgwood pieces; lamps and letter openers


Dear John: It is unfortu-
nate when relatives pass
away and so much
knowledge goes with them. At-
tached are pictures of some
china. They were
purchased by my
daughter's maternal
grandmother from
an antiques dealer
in the 1950s. She was
told that they were
from the mid-1800s.
The marks on the
bottom of the china
say, "Strawberry John S
fruit, Wedgewood, John
Etruria, England." SIKOI
What can you tell me AT
about them? - R.,
Internet
Dear R: Although there was
a Wedgwood copycat company
by John Wedgewood in the 19th
century, I suspect you have mis-
spelled Wedgwood by adding
the letter e between the g and
w.
The Wedgwood pieces you
have were produced between
World War I and II. The patterti
is Strawberry Fruit. Wedgwood


i

I


produced seven versions of the
Strawberry pattern; two of the
seven were titled Strawberry
Fruit.
Potential dollar value for
your pieces depends
on which version of
the pattern you have.
In order to find out,
try contacting Re-
placements Ltd. at
S(800) 737-5223. Let us
know what you dis-
cover.
Dear John: I have a
pair of lamps like the
ikorski one in the picture.
SKI'S They are 42 inches
TIC tall with crystal hang-
ing on different
edges. The oval in-
serts look like thin marble. I am
not really sure what they are,
but they're not plastic. There
are lights under the shade, as
well as the ones seen in the
photo. These lamps are very
heavy Any idea who made them,
how old they are and what
would they be worth? I bought
them at an estate sale several
years ago. -J.D., Internet

. Special to the Chronicle
':.' This Wedgwood plate was produced sometime between
World War I and World War II. It's a pattern known as "Strawberry
Fruit." There were two versions of the pattern produced; value de-
pends on which version this is. RIGHT: This lamp probably dates
from the mid-20th century. There's no specific collector interest.

Dear J.D.: I will assume the no specific collector interest.

Keller Williams also welcomes
John Hoffmeister. He moved to
Florida from New York in 1972, and
he, his wife Genise and family have
lived in Citrus County since 1980.
Before beginning his career in real
estate, Hoffmeister was a city letter
carrier with the United States


Postal Service
and served his
country for 38
years with pride,
trust and profes-
sionalism.
John is a vet-
eran of the Viet-
nam War era, a
member of the
Knights of
Columbus, and a
member of the

Advisory Board at Camp E-Nini-
Hassee. You can reach him at

Keller Williams and Debbie Rec-
tor's team welcome Marie
Toomey to their team.
Toomey is a native of Massachu-
setts. She relocated to Citrus
County in 2003 with her husband
John and her dog Henry. Marie en-
joys the beauty and tranquility of
the Nature Coast. Her love for
horses made the couple's choice of


Pine Ridge the
perfect place to
live.

years dedicated
to social work,
Marie has been
licensed in real
estate since
1992. She can be

Continued from Page E6

Dear John: The letter opener
in the attached photo has "Solin-
gen Germany" on the back The
design is in red. The holder is
leather. Any idea on the age and
worth? -J., Internet
Dear J.: Letter openers are
collectible but are not a specific
category of collecting. Most are
bought for their decorative ap-
peal or because they are made
by recognized makers. The one
you have would likely sell in
the $5 to $15 range.
Dear John: A while back you
were kind enough to reply to
my inquiry regarding two beau-
tiful blue sconces "mounted
with beautiful faience plaques
made to a high standard." They
were given to me by my sister
Since then, one of the metal
arms holding the candles has
broken and it is in need of re-
pair. I am searching for a reli-
able source that can repair this
properly, since they are of some
value. They were "made in
France in the late 19th century
or early 20th century and the
potential value for the pair is
between $800 and $1,200."
Would you be kind enough to
recommend someone who can
repair this so that I can admire
the wall sconces in my home
again? -AM., Internet
Bear AM.: I suggest you con-
tact Leak Enterprises, 12500 S.

Qha^ We have a ,.
* wood floor in .
* our home
tha repeatedly has .
termite mud holes and *:j-
piles of sawdust show- . '
ing up. The contractor
has replaced some of
the wood, but the
problem continues. Is
there any treatment '
that will work com- Dwight
pletely, or does the en- HC
tire wood floor need to m .'
be replaced?
What is the best way to get rid
of wood-flooring termites?
A: If you are finding sawdust,
then you probably have a wood-
boring beetle, also known as a
powder post beetle. The name is
derived from the fine, flourlike
powder, or frass, the beetles dis-
card.
The most common wood-bor-
ing beetle families are the lycti-
dae, bostrichidae and anobiidae.
Only the anobiidae family of bee-
tles can digest cellulose, the
main ingredient of wood. All

S. already in the hard-

you purchased it.
The lyctus beetle
Barnett may also be present in
ME wood furniture and
A.."-' paneling and can be
brought into the home
in firewood. The beetle larvae
spend several months iftside the
wood, where the damage goes
unseen. It's only when the adult
beetle exits the wood that the
pinhole damage becomes evi-
dent. The female beetle will
often leave behind eggs to hatch
to continue the cycle of their
species, further damaging the
wood.
Other cellulose items in the

The ins and outs of 'Knock-out' roses


here is a bank in Beverly Hills
where shrub roses bloom in
abundance from March until
the first frost in December. The nar-
row strip of planting bed, facing di-
rectly south, gets full sun from sunup
to sundown.
Soil is simply the fill dirt left after
construction, scattered with lumps of
alkaline debris such as mortar and
cement and topped with decaying
pine bark mulch. To make growing
conditions more difficult, the red
brick building absorbs and radiates
heat toward the rose bushes. Black


asphalt, hot vehicle engines and ex-
haust fumes front the flowerbed. Yet
these roses flower for nine months a
year.
These popular, woody-stemmed,
evergreen roses are the patented
"Knock-out" series, which retail for
about $25 for a No. 3 or 10-inch pot.
Most of the 150 Rosa species from
temperate regions of the Northern
Hemisphere are deciduous, losing
their leaves in winter. Leaves usually
have three leaflets with finely

See Page E26


JANE WEBER/For the Chronicle
Patented hybrid roses such as the Double Knock-outs are popular
because they are hardy and attractive specimens.

Think before topping tree


Before you take
the top off a
tree, here are
eight good issues to
ponder
* Starvation -
Good pruning prac-
tices rarely remove
more than one-quar-
ter to one-half of the
crown which, in turn,
does not interfere
with the ability of a
tree's leafy crown to
manufacture food.


Kerry Kreider
THE
ARBORIST


Topping removes so much of
the crown that it-upsets an older
trees well-developed crown to
root ratio and temporarily cuts
off its food-making ability.
* Shock - A tree's crown is
like an umbrella that shades
much of the tree from the direct
rays of the sun. By suddenly re-
moving this protection, the re-
maining bark tissue is exposed
and scaling may result. There
may also be a dramatic effect on
neighboring trees and shrubs. If
these plants thrive in the shade,
and the shade is removed, poor
health or death may result
* Insects and disease - The
large stubs of a topped tree have
a difficult time forming callus.
The terminal location of these
cuts, as well as their large diam-
eter, prevents the tree's chemi-
cally based natural defense sys-


tem from doing its job.
The stubs are
highly vulnerable to
insect invasion and
the scores of decay
fungi. If decay is al-
ready present in the
limb, opening the
limb will speed the
spread of the disease.
N Weak limbs - At
best, the wood of a
new limb that sprouts
after a large limb is
truncated is more


weakly attached than a limb that
develops more normally. If rot
exists, or develops at the sev-
ered end of the limb, the weight
of the sprout makes a bad situ-
ation even worse.
* Rapid new growth - The
goal of topping is usually to con-
trol the heights and spread of a
tree. Actually, it has the oppo-
site effect The resulting sprouts
(often called water sprouts, or
epicormic growth) are far more
numerous than normal growth
and they elongate so rapidly
that the tree returns to its origi-
nal height in a short time and
with a far denser crown.
* Tree death - Some older
trees are more tolerant than
others. Beeches for example,
do not sprout rapidly after se-
vere pruning and the reduced
foliage most surely will lead to


the death of the tree.
* Ugliness -Atopped tree is a
disfigured tree. Even with its re-
growth, it never retains the grace
and character of its species. The
landscape and community are
robbed of a valuable asset
* Cost - To a worker with a
.saw, topping a tree is much eas-
ier than applying the skill and
judgment of a good pruning.
Therefore, topping may cost
less in the short run; however,
the tree costs of topping are
hidden. These include reduced
property value; the expense
and removal of replacement if
the tree dies; the loss of other
trees and shrubs, if they suc-
cumb to changed-light condi-
tions; and the risk of liability of
weakened branches and in-
creased future maintenance.

the tree of friendship and one
of the four primary trees of the
god of China!-

often covered with prickles to

A patented plant has been

plant breeder. After years of
field-testing, the patent pro-
tects the breeder's rights, then
a marketing campaign-begins.
Each plant bears a tag warning
that '"Asexual reproduction

Patent Laws."

several times a week to enjoy
indoors. This practice con-
stantly trims the shrub during
the flowering season. In winter
when the bush is not flowering,
cut back a third to half of the
main stems to control the over-
all size. Remove any frozen
stems and the thickest old
growth. Left un-pruned and not
deadheaded, the shrub will be
