Gas prices: Don't expect a big break this summer


JIM HUNTER

'While it's possible vacationers
could get a little relief in the current
upward trend in gasoline prices this'
summer, they shouldn't count on it
lowering much, if at all, the experts
say.
In other words, figure on spending
more than you did last year for gas
and figure some ways to cut back on
things in the vacation budget, such as
restaurant meals or accommoda-
tions, suggests Gregg Laskoski,
spokesman for AAA Club South.
Laskoski said AAA is predicting
that people are still going to vacation
and will still travel by auto this sum-
mer, although they are more likely
not to travel so far because of the gas

prices and they may have to find ways
to save in other areas if they travel a
lot
While gas is typically not a big part
of the vacation budget, depending on
the situation and the trip, this sum-
mer's record prices can make a dif-
ference that might require
adjustments, he said.
Although Laskoski said AAA thinks
the price won't get much higher this


summer, he said no one should ex-
pect any big drop either. "We think we
are close to the peak prices right
now," he said.
Laskoski said that the gasoline
market normally sees prices rising
from March to May for a number of
reasons, but that comes after prices
have normally subsided in the fourth
quarter and so have started the year
relatively lower.
The second quarter is when the oil
refineries are switching from the pro-
duction of winter fuel oil and winter
gasoline formulas to the summer
gasoline formulas, which are more
costly than winter formulas.
This takes a few weeks and there is
the rising consumption as the
weather warms and the classic pres-
sures of supply and demand begin to

An official for the Simon
Properties Group Inc., which
owns the Crystal River Mall,
said Friday he would look into
complaints next week about
the lack of air conditioning at
the mall.
Employees at stores and


businesses at the mall said late
this week they had endured a
week of temperatures that ex-
ceeded the outside tempera-
tures, and at one point the
temperature was in the high
90s in the food court The large
anchor stores have their own
air condition systems and

Denise George, the man-
ager at Kay's Jewelry, said, "It
was unbearable." She said the
problem of heat in the sum-

episode was something else
and obviously affected busi-
ness.
The rest of the clerks and
store managers in the mall re-
ferred the Chronicle to their
corporate headquarters and
to the Simon headquarters in
Indianapolis, for official com-
ment, but they confirmed Fri-
day the mall had appeared to
have had no air conditioning
for almost a week until late in


the week when they had got-
ten some relief.
At least one of the air con-
ditioning units was working
by Friday and the tempera-
ture appeared to be in the
mid-80s, enough to cause a
light sweat but not as sauna-
like as it had been during the
previous weekend and the
first half of the week, accord-
ing to George.
A number of the stores, par-
ticularly the jewelry stores
that use special lighting, were
still using oscillating fans Fri-
day to keep the temperature
down. The mall manager, who

said Citrus County residents
donated 67,970 pounds of food.
Last year, residents donated
approximately 24,000.
"It's mind boggling because
everybody's hurting," Meyers
said. "Everybody's pinching
pennies."
Meyer said he was blown
away countywide residents
reached into their pantries or
went out and bought food to
donate in a time of economic
difficulties.
"Thank you," Meyer said re-
garding the residerits'generos-
ity "They deserve kudos. They
did good. They did real good."
Meyer said struggling people
can go without a lot of ameni-
ties and survive, but not with-
out food.
He wants those who donated
to know they provided relief to
many families in the county, es-
pecially to parents who work
hard but still have trouble put-
ting food on the table for their
children.
On May 10, letter carriers
picked up food donations left
next to mailboxes by residents.
Volunteers delivered those do-
nations to local food pantries.
The United States Postal
Service, Campbell Soup Com-
pany, American Federation of
Labor and Congress of Indus-
trial Organizations, United
Way of Citrus County, Valpak
Direct Marketing Systems Inc.,
America's Second Harvest and
Publix Super Markets Inc.,
partnered with the National
Association of Letter Carriers
to sponsor the food drive.
Many postal service workers
were involved from postmas-
ters, clerks and carriers to
maintenance employees and
managers, Meyer said.
The food drive would not
have been as successful with-
out the help of hardworking
volunteers, Meyer said; more
specifically, Inverness resident
and Meyer's "right arm" Deb-
bie Lattin and Citrus County
Fire Rescue firefighters from
Station 2, C shift.
'They jumped right in there
and helped," Meyer said.

Deputies arrest students on felony charges


Five teenagers were transported

to CMHS after taking drugs


KEIm LYNN MCHALE

Chronicle

Deputies arrested two Ren-
aissance Center students
Thursday afternoon on felony
charges.


The arrests are connected to
an incident that occurred ear-
lier that day at the school.
Shortly after noon, para-
medics transported five
teenagers from the Lecanto al-
ternative school for middle
and high school students with
behavioral problems to Citrus


Memorial Health System.
The students had ingested
prescription drugs, said Gail
Tierney, Citrus County Sher-
iff's Office spokeswoman.
Among those five students
were two 14-year-olds, one
male and one female, who
were later charged with pos-
session with intent to distrib-
ute pharmaceutical drugs
without a license. The female
was also charged with posses-
sion of a controlled substance.


The Chronicle is withhold-
ing information because the
students are minors.
According to the arrest re-
ports, a school administrator
noticed the male was acting
strange and appeared as if he
were going to faint during
lunch. The administrator ques-
tioned him.
The boy pulled out a plastic
bag from his pocket containing
Seroquel pills, accordingto the
reports. He told administrators


and deputies he gave pills to
two other students, including
the female.
School staff members found
a plastic bag with five pills, a
mix of Seroquel and Soma, on
the female, accordingto the ar-
rest reports. She told deputies
she gave one of each pill away
to two other students.
Soma is a muscle relaxer
that treats muscle strains or
spasms, Tierney explained.
Seroquel is an antipsychotic


medication used to treat bipo-
lar disorder, schizophrenia, de-
pression and manic episodes.
After the charges were filed,
the two students were released
into their parents' custody
Chuck Everheart, Renais-
sance Center assistant princi-
pal, refused to comment on the
situation Thursday and apolo-
gized for being uncooperative,
but said the school's adminis-
trators "do not make com-
ments about students."


Coppertone Girl coming


down after half a century


Associated Press

MIAMI - This city's Cop-
Spertone Girl and the mis-
Schievous puppy pulling
down her bathing suit bottom
are stepping out of the sun
after almost half a century,
Sbut they could be back in the
Florida sunshine soon.
Workers started removing
a famous neon sign of the
pair from the Concord build-
ing in downtown Miami on
Saturday. The pigtailed
poster girl for tanning lotion
had been missing her famous
face and part of her tanned
'torso for some time, but an
organization is now working
to restore the sign and put it
'back near its original loca-
tion.
So how does she look after
50 years in the sun?
"Right now she doesn't
look very good," said Fran
Rollason, the president of the
MiMo Biscayne Association,
.which is overseeing the sign's
restoration.
Refurbishing and possibly


re-lighting the sign is ex-
pected to cost somewhere be-
tween $30,000 and $40,000,
according to Jerry Bengis,
whose father built the origi-
nal sign.
Bengis, who is helping with
the sign's preservation, says
he sees it as a piece of art and
history similar to artist Andy
Warhol's famous soup cans.
"I think it's more art than
advertising anymore," he
said.
The company that now
owns Coppertone, New Jer-
sey-based Schering-Plough
Corp., has promised to help
pay for the restoration. It still
uses the girl's image but it
has changed in the years
since the Miami sign was put
up.
"She's just protecting her-
self a little more with sun-
screen these days," said
company spokeswoman Jen-
nifer Samolewicz, who said
the girl's tan lines were re-
moved and swimming suit al-
tered. "She's gotten a little
more modest over the years."

When on the open road en-
joying that vacation, AAA rec-
ommends the following
driving tips for better fuel
economy:
* Know the correct starting
procedure for your car. Don't
race a cold engine to warm it
up or allow it to idle for an ex-
tended time. Avoid rapid ac-
celeration until the engine
temperature is in the normal
range. The engine will warm
up faster under a light load,
and emissions equipment
will begin to function sooner
* Maintain steady speeds
for the best fuel economy. A
car uses extra fuel when it ac-
celerates.
* Minimize the need to
brake by anticipating traffic
conditions. Be alert for slow-
downs and red lights ahead of
you, and decelerate by coast-
ing whenever possible.
* Travel at moderate
speeds on the .open road.
Higher speeds require more
fuel to overcome 'air resist-
ance. Remember, however,
speeds slower than the flow
of traffic can create a traffic
hazard.
* Use the air conditioner
conservatively Most air con-
ditioners have an "economy"
or "recirculation" setting that
reduces the amount of hot
outside air that must be
chilled. Both settings can re-
duce the air-conditioning
load - and save gas.

"It looks like a golf cart

The only negative, Griffin
said, is that it takes high-test


gasoline.
"But when you're getting 50
miles to the gallon - if you
look at it as
how much ___
you're paying

that's a differ-
ent way of
looking at it."
The car cur-

is there's lots
of room inside and there's no
effort to get out of the car.
With most vehicles you sit
low and step up to get out of
them. With this, you step
down, like you would with an
SUV"
Griffin, who retired from
the oil industry as a heating
company service manager,
said he's familiar enough
with the industry to be confi-
dent that gas prices will
never go down substantially.
"You have to adjust your
thinking," he said. "How are
you going to maintain your
quality of living you've got
going now? We bought the
car for driving around
Florida. We wanted some-
thing that would be econom-
ical and safe.
"This won't increase our
driving," he said, "but I think
we'll be able to maintain the
same amount of driving and
still be able to afford it on a
fixed income. Otherwise, like
most everybody else, we'd be
decreasing."

apply in a gasoline market
that is already tight globally
This year was different
from normal years, however,
Laskoski said. A weak econ-
omy and weak dollar - the
currency used for the global
oil market - and an ex-
tended rally for crude oil
through the last quarter of
2007 - when the market
usually subsides - meant
the market began with
higher prices and then went
up seasonally, exacerbating
the already high price to
new heights.
The Federal Reserve
board cut interest rates, and
traders who traditionally


see commodities like gaso-
line and gold as a hedge, put
money into them, Laskoski
said. Gold, too has been
seen higher prices.
The continuing weak dol-
lar doesn't help, Laskoski
said, but he feels the cycle
has to change at some point.
"We don't see how the price
of crude oil can be sus-
tained for so long a period,"
he said. The problem is no
one is quite sure of the tim-
ing, and global events yet to
transpire can affect the
prices.
How the weakening dollar
fares may have a lot to do
with how the prices go, he
said.
The U.S. Energy Informa-
tion Administration said in
its "Short-term Energy Out-
look" for May: "The pro-


jected prices for crude oil in
2008 will result in higher
prices for all petroleum
products. Regular-grade
gasoline is expected to aver-
age $3.52 per gallon in 2008,
or 71 cents above the 2007
annual average price., The
monthly average regular-
grade gasoline prices is pro-
jected to peak at $3.73
gallon in June."


That peak, however, was
already passed in Florida
last week.
So, when they travel, what
can vacationers do to find
the best fuel price? Take
along a laptop and check out
the prices at gasbuddycom,
fueleconomy.gov, and
gaspricewatch.com, which
list the lowest prices by sta-
tion in that area.

BEGLEY
Continued from Pap Al
from a bullet wound. He was
airlifted to Tampa General
Hospital. Prosecutors claimed
Begley raped the woman be-
cause he thought the woman
was cheating and she had
been denying him sex fbor two
months, so she was going to
"get what she deserved,"
On Friday, Begley took the
stand in his own defense and
told his side of the story. He
spoke of a perfect relationship
that went south after the
woman visited her dying
grandmother He said the
woman became quiet and sub-
dued and he worried about
her He even placed a tape
recorder in the woman's car in
the hope of finding out what
was wrong with her According
to Begley, he didn't rape the
woman. He said that after two
months of not having sex, they
indeed became intimate, but it
was consensual. He said
bondage was a part of their sex
life so tying her up wasn't un-
usual. He said he took a knife
away from the woman that
night because he was afraid of
what she might do with it
When he placed the bent knife
on the nightstand, he said he
turned around to see the
woman pointing a gun at him.
He said the woman said, "I'm
35 and you're ruining our
plan." And with that, she shot


him. He said the last thing he
remembered was the woman
saying she called 911 and hold-
ing a towel on his wound.
Herndon and Assistant
State Attorney Rich Buxman
spent days trying to convince
the jury that Begley was not
the loving husband he por-
trayed himself to be. The at-
torneys said he was angry the
woman was cheating and that
he planned to torture and kill
her that evening In her closing
argument, Herndon said the
state didn't need to prove the
woman was held against her
will by physical force. She said
they didn't need to prove that
because it was apparent the
woman was held against her
will with fear. Herndon said
the woman was frightened
into complying with Begley's
wishes.
"She absolutely believed he
would hurt her," Herndon
said.
Herndon said through the
woman's actions, she showed
Begley she didn't want any
type of relationship with him.
She said Begley was upset
about losing control of his life
and the woman and that's why
he did what he did. She ad-
vised the jury to not even con-
sider the lesser charges of.
assault and battery, because
what Begley did was in fact
kidnap and sexually batter the
woman.
Shellnut painted a different
picture in his closing argu-
ment He called the woman a

liar He said she lied multiple
times to police and that de-
stroyed her credibility
"How many lies does it take
before you are a liar?" Shell-
nut said.
He said the woman and Be-
gley had a "kinky" sex life, but
told the jury they couldn't hold
that against them. He tried to
dispel the accusation that Be-
gley was controlling by citing
that the woman was able to
carry on an affair for about
three months without Begley's
knowledge. Shellnut also said
the woman's lies sent the po-
lice on a wild goose chase and
that it compromised the inves-
tigation.
Shellnut claimed the rape
was concocted as a cover for
attempted murder. He said
the woman wanted to be with
her lover and she created this
scene to accomplish that goal.
He asked the jurors to deter-
mine who's telling the truth
and whose lying considering
the woman has lied before.
In Herndon's rebuttal, she
showed a picture of the
woman taken the night of the
rape.
"This is not make-up sex,"'


Herndon said adamantly.
In response to the woman
being a liar, Herndon said de-
tectives involved in the inves-
tigation said the lie about the
affair didn't concern them.
The detectives said it didn't af-
fect their conclusion in the
case because the evidence
pointed to what the woman
claimed had happened that
night
She scoffed at the defense
for trying to imply the woman
set up the whole ordeal to
make it look like she was
raped to get away from Begley
so she could be with the other
man.
"Nobody is smart enough to
orchestrate this," Herndon
said.
And to illustrate her point,
she replayed the 911 call
made from the neighbors'
house. On the tape, the woman
is heard screaming about
shooting her husband and
being raped. She pleads with
the 911 operator to send the
police quickly because she is
scared for her life.
"That does not sound like
the voice of a cold-blooded
killer," Herndon said.

Mountain of fun


Special to the Chronicle
In mid-summer, snow was still on the ground In Glacier National Park, Mont. Branson
Redding and his wife, Nancy, of Homosassa, had hiked to Hidden Lake from Logan's
Pass at the Continental Divide. Along the way, they saw several mountain goats,
and Hidden Lake was spectacular. However, the most surprising sight was along the
trail on the return trip. The trail passed across a slope, and as they rounded a bend,
they met five Amish women climbing toward the lake. For 12 years, the Reddings
lived in Ohio, where there Is a large Amish population, but they were awed and in-
spired at this sight on a Rocky Mountain trail.

series confronted me
with climbing 32,300
feet while bicy-
cling 15 loops in
the French Bur-
gundy region - if
not insane, then
perhaps bizarre.
We set the dates
May 27 to June 14
and the general lo-
cation - an hour
and forty minutes
southeast of Paris WAL
on a high-speed
train (TGV). JUDI
We decided to MOC
return for a week
to Nantoux in the

this village where I stayed
last year is within the Do-
maine - winemaking and
vineyards - Germain that
produces fine wines.. Their
gite weekly rental remained


at 230. With space for two
couples, it has everything we
need.
For the other week's loca-
tion, a location near the
Canal du Niver-
nais was the goal.
Using an online re-
gional map, I
sketched eight bi-
cycle loops and
then ordered maps
(scaled 1:25,000)
from Institut Geo-
graphique Na-
tional. My logic
TER highlighted a ten-
tative location
ION near Corbigny.
ORE This town of 1,900
has two hotels, sev-
eral restaurants, a
"supermarche," or super-
market, and "boulangeries,"
or bakeries. The Internet re-
vealed a three-sheaf-of-corn
rated on a 1 to 5 scale gite
with June availability in
Chitry-les-Mines. At 395 a
week, it is more expensive


than expected. However, lo-
cation near Coibigny is most
favorable and the description
exceeds comfortable. I re-
served online both gites for
the desired weeks, with 25
percent deposits paid via
credit card.
An initial problem was how
to cram the eight daily rides
planned in the Nievre into
the six riding days in Chitry.
Two added riding days were
necessary - not to mention
17 days of reasonably decent
weather - plus an extra day
at the front end of the trip for
time adaptation and poten-
tial lost luggage. Beaune was
the obvious choice for our
Wednesday arrival night and
in a Corbigny hotel on Thurs-
day and Friday nights, arriv-
ing at the Chitry gite
Saturday afternoon.
The next step was to get
round trip airline tickets to
Paris. Last year, the fare from
Orlando was $1,060. This Jan-
uary the best fare I found -'

in the U.S." in Half.


Ocala,FL -
With groundbreaking fuel
efficiency, innovative design and
notorious reliability marked at
consumer-level prices, it's :no
wonder why Honda has just
been voted America's best vehi-
cle by Consumer Reports. While
Honda dealers across the coun-
try now have a new bragging
right to throw around, only
Honda of Ocala has decided to
throw the celebration towards
the customer, making an
unprecedented opportunity to
take a new Honda home for half
the price.
"We've been setting records
all year long and building brand
new state-of-the-art facilities at
the same time," claims Al
Herrera, Honda of Ocala's new
car sales manager, "Now that
we're officially selling Consumer
Report's highest rated vehicles,
we're ready to take things one
step further We're going to
throw a sales event unlike any-
thing we've ever done before."
Now through Memorial
Day, Honda of Ocala will be
offering brand new cars, trucks,
minivans and sport utilities for
as little as half their original
price. For example, a new 2008
Honda Accord sedan with a V6
engine usually comes with a sell-
ing price of $21,860. During
Honda of Ocala's special event,
that same vehicle is now ready


to drive home for a one-pay-
ment lease of just $10,180.
"This is a rare opportunity
that you won't find anywhere
else," Herrera mentions, "And
it's available on every single
Honda in stock. So if you need
the fuel-efficiency of a hybrid


"Not only will

customers have

the best car in

the U.S., but

they'll have a

solid warranty

backing it up..."
- Al Herrera,
new car sales manager of
Honda of Ocala.


Civic, the legroom of a new
Odyssey, or the power of a
brand new Ridgeline, now is the
time to see us.. We can get you
behind the wheel for just half the
price."
& In addition to this limited-
time -offer, Honda of Ocala will
also be providing, customers
with their unbeatable lifetime
warranty, which will also be


available on every new Honda
in stock. "Not only will cus-
tomers have the best car in the
U.S., but they'll have a solid
warranty backing it up, possibly
making this the last vehicle
they'll ever need to buy."
During this exclusive sales
event, Honda of Ocala has
agreed to accept all credit appli-
cations, making this an opportu-
nity for just about anyone,
regardless of their previous cred-
it problems. Victims of late pay-
ments, divorce, foreclosure and
even bankruptcy are invited to
attend.
This exclusive event will be
available to customers now
through Memorial Day,
although Herrera and his team
want to remind customers that
all vehicles will be sold on a first-
come, first-served basis.
"If you have new-car needs
but you're stuck with a used-car
budget, this is an event you can't
afford to pass up," Herrera goes
on to explain. "See us today at
the home of the lifetime warran-
ty and drive a brand new Honda
for half the original price."
Honda of Ocala is located
at 1800 SW College Rd, just
East of 1-75. This sale will only
be available through 9pm
Memorial Day. For more infor-
mation or to get directions, call
toll-free at 866-824-6653.

Ronnie Badner: ATHLETE OF THE YEAR NOMINEE


JONATHAN DEUTSCHMAN
jdeutschman@chronicleonline.com
Ch'ron icle
In team sports, it can take weeks
or months to earn a champi-
onship. In individual sports, it can
take as little as a few minutes.
Ronnie Baldner has experienced
the quest for both.
Most former state champions
would list that achievement as the


biggest of their career to date. Not
Baldner.
"It's a lot harder to get 353 yards
receiving than win the state title
in high jump," said the Crystal
River senior.
Baldner has done both in his
tenure with the Pirates, but it's the
ornner that he said will stay with
him forever. And who could blame
him? He didn't rack up 353 yards
on just any Friday night; he did it
when it counted most.
The story's a well-told one by
now: Crystal River vs. Williston at


Pirate Stadium in the first round of
the playoffs: an offensive spectacle
with a resulting score of 5349: the
inauguration of Citrus County's lat-
est hero, quarterback Shay New-
comer. But right there, beneath
nearly every pass and quite often in
the end zone, was Baldner Along
with the win for his team, Baldner
also earned a state record for re-
ceiving yards in a playotffgame and
was later named to the Class 3A
second team by the Florida Sports
Writer's Association.
All told. Baldner racked up 898


receiving yards and 16 touch- will be
downs in the 2007 season. He hard to du-

Being a mildly squeam-
ish sort, I tend to take
notice of restaurant
cleanliness and employee
habits. A hearty cough into the
hand of a submarine sand-
wich-maker with no follow-up
washing will send me packing
before I place an order.
I've never bolted on some-
one who's in the process of
making my sandwich, but I've
been tempted.
This past week I was in line
behind a couple at one of the
numerous sub shops I fre-
quent The man in the party
was very pointed in telling the
sandwich-makers of his dis-
satisfaction with a rival sub
shop. He said the employees
at the other place don't wash
hands between making sand-
wiches and he was looking for
a sandwich shop to his liking.
Very picky, this fellow was
- and not bashful about stat-
ing his expectations.
Well, his observations got
the employees at this estab-
lishment talking and boasting
about their all-around better
quality food and preparation
habits. The employee he ini-
tially spoke to was wearing
plastic gloves, which is always
nice to see for the squeamish
among us.
Other restaurant staffers
joined in the conversation
and expressed pride in their
work place and superiority
over their competitor. Better
quality, larger portions,
freshly prepared, more op-
tions and things like that
were brought up by the jovial
staff in their response to the
customer's inquiry.
My feeling was that the cus-
tomer was a little over the top
and perhaps a tough guy for
any restaurant to please. But
in these times, only fools turn
away customers.
As I followed the guy up the
counter and the sandwich-
making process changed
hands from one employee to
the next, I marveled at how
the conversation continued. It
really was inspiring to see
these employees express such
pride and confidence.
As sandwiches for the cus-
tomer in front of me neared
completion, the assembly line
for my salad was in full swing.
One person added some in-
gredients, then another added
more.
The customer in front of me
paid up and was off to put the
quality of the sandwich to the
test
A non-gloved sandwich/
salad-maker at the end of the
line added some final ingredi-
ents, sealed up my to-go order
-then licked his fingers so he
could grab a bag to put the
salad in.


The finger-licking was so in-
stinctive that I doubt he even
knew he did it I nervously said
thanks, grabbed my bagged
salad and bolted toward the
op e door, not wanting to see if he
o used his dampened fingertips
P to build the next sandwich or
d if it was a salad coming down the line.

divided county commis-
sion voted last week to put
J. ,.a referendum on the No-

Predictably, Commissioners
Joyce Valentino, Vicki Phillips
and Gary Bartell voted for the
referendum. Commissioners
Dennis Damato and John
Thrumston voted against it

of the issues this commission
has failed to resolve.
Foigte past 10 years, our cgm-_
mission has been struggingwithi
meeting the space needs of con-
stitutional officers such as the
supervisor of elections, the
property appraiser, the tax col-
lector, the clerk of court and the
sheriff. The principal offices of
these officials are required to be
situated in the county seat.
Some of the constitutional of-
ficers have satellite offices else-
where in the county where
citizens can conduct most if not
all the business they have with
these officials, but the principal
offices, where most of their staff
works, are in Inverness. As the
space needs of these offices
have grown, the county has been
faced with accommodating the
growth in staff and equipment.

Road 44 and then south along
County Road 491 to the Lecanto
Government Building. However,
when this extension was ap-
proved, the provision was added
that the principal offices of con-
stitutional officers could not be
moved without a referendum.
Space needs studies by Com-
missioner Damato and more re-
cently by Public Works Director
Glenn McCracken have shown
that additional office space for
constitutional officers can be
built in Inverness,
SSUE: and that building in
Inverness repre-
dum to sents the least-cost
moving of option for provid-
nal offices. ing this space.
:INION: Facing re-election
bids, Commissioner
argument Valentino - whose
own costs district includes In-
-quences. verness - and Com-
missioner Phillips
have chosen to ignore these stud-
ies and have instead seized on a
referendum as an issue that they
can use to position themselves as
protectors of the public'jurse by
promoting buying cheaper land
outside of Inverness.
What they have failed to ad-
dress is the total cost to taxpay-
ers, since the cost of land is only
one of the costs of new offices.
Infrastructure is required to
support new office buildings.
Building outside of Inverness
would require taxpayer dollars
to build new infrastructure that
already exists in the city.
This referendum may sound
good on the surface - just get-
ting citizen input on a controver-
sial issue - but as always, the
devil is in the details. And
among these details is the ques-
tion of what the total cost of re-
locating offices will be, not just
what it costs to buy an acre of
land in Lecanto or Inverness or
somewhere in between.


and the minute they open them -
kablooey! - they get full of dye and
they ain't going to wash the dye off,
and then they'll stick out like a sore
ND thumb. The stores need to
JND do something about this.
It's getting ridiculous.
Meanwhile they're panhan-
Sdling all these drugs onto
,i the streets and these store
people just hand them over
the pills by a note. Some-
thing's got to be done
about it.
)579 Not soeasy
To the person talking
about people with wells
who don't pay for their water. Our
water is run by electricity; our well
pumps are. When the lights go out,
we don't have electricity, we don't
have water. During a bad storm,
during a hurricane or any of those
times, the electric goes off and we
don't have water. And sometimes
when the electric comes back on,
we have to prime the pump, and
the electric bill also goes up. It's
not easy having a well.
Who pays?
Just recently a veterans group
had a monthly meeting and there
was two Citrus County sheriff's
deputies there for some ungodly
reason. Now who pays for this -
the taxpayers? Or will the organiza-
tion pay for it? Or will it just be a
donation as a community service?

that is no reason to turn a blind
eye to it People's lives are inter-
twined into our economy. But the
laws have been.broken and we the
people will not let this go.
Job one, send (illegal aliens)
back Then track them down and
work out a temporary work order
that allows them to return to work
and help their families. We need
badly to control our borders and
stop the drugs from coming over.
No American has the right to
pick and choose the laws that we
will follow. If the law is wrong, go
to court and work it out The ille-
gal folks must be fingerprinted and
photographed. That way they can-
not just circle back
Mexico needs our help and we
will give it if they want us to, but
don't stab us in the back while we
try to help Mexico join the world

Americans wake up
After watching Ivana Trump's
extravagant wedding on TV, it cer-
tainly occurred to me that the very
rich in this country are completely
out of touch with the struggles of
the average middle-class Ameri-
cans, much less the very poor.
Here we are just trying to stay
above water and she has a 9-foot
wedding cake, 25 bridesmaids,
thousands of dollars of flowers, a
cost of $1,000 per table for decora-
tions for 500 people and who only
knows the cost of her wedding
dress.
If I had been in her position and
able to afford such an extravagant
wedding, I certainly wouldn't have
made it available for public dis-
play. The very fact that she did,

tells me for sure the rich have no
idea that we are making a choice
to eat or buy our necessary med-
ications for the month.
Even the companies that are
supplying our food think we are
brainless when they package our
goods in much smaller packaging
and then only raise the price a lit-
tle! Now our governor is talking
about abolishing the tax on gas
from Memorial Day until Labor
Day. I wonder if he has noticed gas
has skyrocketed since that an-
nouncement.
Americans, these people think
they are dealing with a bunch of
blind people. When I hear about
these CEOs of these big corpora-
tions getting unbelievable amounts
of money and bonuses while we '


stockholders watch our futures dis-
appear, it makes me wonder where
their human decency has gone.
Doesn't our president realize the
hardships we are enduring with
gas prices, food, and just about
everything else, going out of sight?
A lot of Americans are living off
their credit cards with every inten-
tion of paying it at the end of the
month. But every time they turn
around something else takes that
money so it just builds and builds.
I don't claim to be the smartest
chicken in the hen house, but
something is wrong with all of this
mess. We need to step up and ask
why our president and our Con-
gress, whom we elected, have our
wonderful country in such a
predicament It is gracious to help
other countries and we should, but
not at the expense of our own.

Expensive road
The DOT is pushing for the ex-
tension of Suncoast toll road. I be-
lieve the figures they are making
public are inaccurate.
The cost to build is staggering
and the cost of maintaining the ex-
tension is going to fall on Citrus
County - not the state, not the fed.
The tolls will never pay for the
road. The current tolls, based on
traffic, probably aren't even paying
the wages of the toll workers.
The road was an ill-designed
and ill-conceived idea from the be-
ginning. Other roads could have
been improved to relieve conges-
tion around Tampa.
If you are crying about your
taxes now, just wait, if this road
gets built You ain't seen nothing'
yet!

As Americans, we have the right to


In spite of my wife's best
advice and my own best
intentions, sometimes I'll
submit a column; and then,
once it's published, wonder
why I let it escape.
. I don't shy away from con-
flict- I deal with differences
of opinion on a daily basis.
But the content of this col-
umn isn't supposed to add to
anyone's stress level, espe-
cially mine.
I don't enjoy being the ob-
ject of discontent discussed
in the Sound Off section. I
like being the darling of an
adoring public, but my feath-
ers droop when my com-


ments cause casti-
gation.
A few weeks ago,
there was a "what

I'd intended to
offer words which
emphasized that

liberals and con-
s servatives in touch-

issues - prayer in
public schools and
gun control.
Occasionally, my
sweetheart says,
annen "Watch what you
ICE write, they know
where we live!"
IFE I'm not sure who
"they" are, but if
they are folks with guns who
think I want to take their
guns away, she's right!
After re-reading the ques-


tionable column, I hunkered
down, expecting a few shots
across my bow in Sounding
Off, but so far, that hasn't hap-
pened.
What has happened is a
letter to the editor.
I've had my head - and
other parts of my anatomy -
handed to me before, but
never with such surgical skill
as was used by the writer of
the letter, Kevin.

plimenting my writings about

LETTERS 4 to the Editor


How to lead
The husband is supposed
to be the head of household,
if his maturity and leader-
ship are in check Like a
: family unit, our government
is the largest example of a
family leader, with the
country being the members.
We elect officials to run our
government in a way that it
should be prosperous to the
Country; in turn, the family
Swill have the opportunity to
prosper.
S As an analogy, let the fa-
ther represent our govern-
ment, in that: He must not
spend more than he earns.
If he trades for extra in-
come he can't buy more
goods than he will sell. He
must ensure the family is
well fed. He must make
sure every member gets
health care. He must not
lavish himself over his fam-
ily.
Also, he must ensure that
every member has the
means to care for personal
needs. He must never foster
care people in his home if it
imposes hardship on its
members. He must never
treat his neighbors better
than his family and he-must
not deprive the family to be
superior to his neighbors.
He must never jeopardize
the lives of his family in
vain.
We have lost mature lead-
ership in our country. You
can't rebuild Mexico to
keep the Mexicans from
coming here. You can't give
s interest-free-toans and \.
* wave taxes to non-Ameri-
cans to start businesses. I
s could go on, but you all
know in your hearts we

Consider: The space pro-
gram is more important
than free health care. Look
at Canada, they're not in the
space race and they have
free health care. The tril-
lions of dollars spent over
the last 40 years has got us a
space station while we're
losing our homes. That
money could have funded a
cure for cancer, an earth-
friendly source of power
and a healthy America.
That money could have
secured the means that any
American could run for of-


fice, not just the rich and
greedy. Why isn't the space
program an issue when
America is falling apart? We
do not need to go to outer
space. Our leaders are al-
ready there.

Pay for pave
This is Wednesday, May
14: For the.person from
Heatherwood: The reason
the few roads are not
paved is because the peo-
ple living on them do not
want to pay to have them
paved. When the roads
were paved out here years
ago, the residents had to
pay for it. So apparently
you are new to Heather-
wood and did not know.
Why idle?
Every year some politi-
cian wants to idle speed
Kings Bay because it's a lit-
tle trafficky out there on the.
weekends. We go through it
every year. Always govern-
ment is trying to protect us
poor people from our-


selves. Well, I was out on
the bay Monday through
Friday and there was only
two or three boats out
there. Why should I have to
go idle speed? Takes too
long to go anywhere and
can't get around. If you
can't handle the water,
don't go out on the water.
There's laws in place. All
you have to do is enforce
the present laws that are in
place. When that became a
sanctuary, those speed
zones were put in there for
recreational purposes, and
those people shouldn't be
kicked out of the bay just
because somebody wants
to paddle through there.

Leave the sandbar at

It has been there for over

own big boats complain
about it. It acts as a kind of
speed bump and makes
them slow down. But don't

some parts of Canada over
NAFTA. A parliamentarian
from the United Kingdom
liked McCain because of the
free-trade issue and open
markets. One thing is clear:
The U.S. election will be the
most important election in
the world in 2008. At this


point no one knows what is
going to happen.
The final paragraph are my
thoughts and no one else's.
For some time I have be-
lieved that the Democratic
ticket will be Obama/Clinton
or Clinton/Obama. It appears
clear that Hillary is not about
to give up, even though her
nomination is a long shot.
Lightning must strike and
Obama must do something
terribly stupid to give her a


chance. Obama has to be like
Muhammad Ali, who would
keep dancing away from his
opponent until his opponent
was exhausted, then Ali
would step in and knock him
out Clinton is exhausting her
friends, her family and her
money, yet her staying in and
fighting makes her with-
drawal from the race even
more dramatic.
Clinton has nowhere to go.
If she returns to the Senate,


she will find a great many
people still there who said
they were going to support
her and didn't. Her chances
of getting the presidential
nomination next time, if
Obama doesn't win, are slim.
There will be tremendous
pressure from the Demo-
cratic leaders for her to take
the vice presidential nomina-
tion with all sorts of promises
about how important she will
be. I have kept reminding


people over and over again
that in 1960 Lyndon Johnson
was the most powerful politi-
cal leader in Washington. He
didn't like John Kennedy, nor
did he have much respect for
Kennedy However, it became
clear to him that a
Kennedy/Johnson ticket
would win, especially as
Johnson would carry Texas.
Johnson held his nose, ac-
cepted the vice presidential
nomination, and the rest is


history. I believe the same
pattern will be followed, and
an Obama/Clinton ticketiwill
start out with a 10 percent
point lead over McCain. '

Opportunities for all
Bill Ponko considered me
"elitist" because I object to
eliminating the wall of sepa-
ration of church and state and
using taxpayer money to fund
private schools. Well this
"elitist" who grew up poor,
going to public schools in
North Carolina, will not back
down. Access to a free public
school education was the
backbone that built the mid-
dle class in this country and I
still believe in a public school
system that gives opportuni-
ties to all children.
We all realize there are
problems in schools today but
many of these are societal,
rather than reflective of the
quality of the schools or the
teachers. Some public
schools are underfunded, es-
pecially in poor areas with in-
adequate tax bases, but how
does diverting tax money to
private schools help the situa-
tion?
Mr. Ponko said Hillary Clin-
ton went to private schools,
which is not accurate. In her
book "Living History" Clinton
writes the following, "I loved
school, and I was lucky
enough to have some great
teachers at Eugene Field
School, Ralph Waldo Emer-
son Junior High and Maine
Township High Schools east
and south. Years later, when I
chaired the Arkansas Educa-
S tion Standards Committee, I
realized how fortunate I had
been to attend fully equipped
schools with highly trained
teachers and a full range of
academic and extracurricu-
lar offerings."
Clinton grew up in an
upper middle class suburb of
Chicago with a healthy tax
base and well-funded schools.
All children should have the
same opportunity, so instead

Vate schools we need to figure

Go bow hunting
I am a firm believer that
public land owned by the ,
state and maintained .by tax-
payer money should be put to
the best use and made avail-
able to as many people as
possible.
Last year when gas started
going up, several of us started
looking for places closer to
home to bow hunt and fish.
We came up with three tracts
of state-owned property,
maintained by Florida De-
partment of Environmental
Protection, better known as
Green Way Trails.
Tract No. 1 is Inglis Island,
north of the Inglis Dam. It is
1,200 acres - well main-
tained, heavily wooded, with
dirt roads and trails. This is a
walk-in area, presently used
by a few people for bird
watching.
Tract No. 2 is Eagle Nest,
west of the Inglis Dam, 100
acres of wooded property,
fenced in, dirt roads through-
out, presently used for horse-
back riders.
Tract No. 3 has no name. It
is west of the Barge Canal
Bridge on U.S. 19, accessible
by boat only, wooded 1,200
acres. Used by no one.
We have walked all three of
these areas and all have a-
good deer herd and some
hogs. We feel that all three
could be opened to bow hunt-
ing only without any impact
to present use. Plus, open
them up to more people and
get max use of the property.
The director of Green Way
Trails said that area No. 2 has
plans to be made into an RV
park, with all the tax cuts. I .
don't think so... for many
years. Even if they would,
there is no reason the other
two areas couldn't be opened.
We as taxpayers payto
maintain these areas - we
should be able to use them. I
highly encourage you to con-
tact Mickey Thomason of
Green Way Trails at (352) 236-
7143 and Don Coyner of Fish
and Game at (352) 732-1225
and encourage them to open
these areas up to bow hunting
next season. We also encour-
age you to go and walk these
areas and decide for yourself.

,Hiaasen hijinks
"New gun law is danger-
ous" by Carl Hiaasen (April 1
17) was, in itself, dangerous to
print and one of the most far-
from-the-truth, exaggerated
articles I've ever read.
We Americans enjoy free-
dom of speech just as we
enjoy the right to bear arms.
Oftentimes the tongue can be
a vicious weapon.
Believing that a "simmer-
ing paranoid with a con-
cealed weapons permit'
wouldn't have a weapon in
his vehicle regardless of writ-
ten law is stupid. The "many
violent workplace shootings
committed by unhinged em-
ployees" occurred because
the employees were un-
hinged. Citizens who abide by
the law are responsible and,
most likely, neither deranged
nor paranoid. Shootings at
work (or schools or other
public places) are rarely
.done spur of the moment, but
' are planned and played out.

I, for one, am not confused
by the facts. The fact is that
those individuals who are

believe guns are a danger are
the real danger They would

Mr. Hiaasen, will your dis-
crimination against the NRA,


gun advocates and Republi-
cans reduce crime? Ab-
solutely not!
We, as Americans, must de-
fend our rights regardless of
the socialists who continue
lobbying to take them from
us. Hiaasen's article was writ-
ten without basis and I sin-
cerely hope readers filed it
properly with the rest of their
garbage.

Sick of it
These letters we're get-
ting on the theories of evo-
lution vs. the theory
so-called of a divine plan or
whatever they call that -
that God is a possibility -
range all the way from
highly plausible to kooky
theories. On the highly
plausible end, we're seeing
things like the theory of
evolution and the theory of
gravity - we tend to think
that might be true-- and
then they range on down
'til it gets to things like the
flat Earth theory, that peo-
ple will drop off the edge,
and finally this:divine cre-
ation, divine plan or what-,
ever they call it. So I'm
getting tired of seeing all
these arguments, but
they'll go nowhere because
everybody's dug into their
own theory. Some think the
Earth is flat.
Generous route
I'd like to thank all the
customers on Route 1 who
gave so freely for the food
drive on Saturday, May 10.
Route 1, you did wonderful.
I can't thank you enough. It
makes me proud to be a
part of it. Route 1 carrier,
Betty Boop, Floral City.
Fish friend
About the "Fish finder" in
your Sound Off, who's look-
ing for a place where he
can pick up some fish for
his fish tank: Well, I have a
bunch of fish and my
phone number is 220-
5294. My name is Jack. If
you can give him that
,phone number and have
him call me, I'll fix him up
with his fish.
Let me in
I'm calling about the
turning lane in Crystal
River on (U.S.) 19 before
you turn into the Sweetbay.
I'm almost always in the
inner lane and there's al-
ways other people not let-
ting people in to get in the
lane. And when you put
your turning signal on, peo-
ple don't let you in or they
don't realize that you don't
want to get in, but you're
trying to get behind them
and, nobody wants to cut in
front of anybody. So some-
body needs to do some-
thing about it.
Sensible guidelines
This week's recent NBC
polls show 86 percent .of


Americans wanted "In God
we trust" and "under God"
in the Pledge of Allegiance.
I'm certain this same 86
percent prefer creation over
evolution in our schools.
Thanks, elected officials,
for adding some sensible
guidelines for teachers' use
in our schools won on this
creation vs. evolution sub-
ject.
Bad politics
I live in Oak Forest subdi-
vision in Floral City. As I
went to retrieve our Chroni-
cle this morning, I noticed
someone had taken our
"Winn Webb for county
commissioner District 5"
sign from our front
yard. I hope this 0
isn't an indication
of mean-spirited
shenanigans to
come in our local
elections this year.
I also noticed that
our neighbors'
signs had been
spared this thiev- CA .
ery ... Well, to who- 563-
ever took our sign:'
God bless America.
Weekend warriors
As a homeowner on the
Crystal River, I don't totally
disagree with John Kostel-
nick in regards to the idle
zones throughout Kings
Bay. However, I think those
of us that use the river re-
sponsibly would be pun-
ished with a year-round
slow zone. Perhaps a year-
round weekend slow zone
would take care of poten-
tial hazards regarding the
weekend warriors that we
have to dehl'with.
Dangerous burning
I think a big, boldfaced
article should appear in the
Chronicle informing people
not to be burning leaves
and so on in their back
yards at this time of year.
Look at the east coast. Wait
for a rainy day if they find it
necessary to burn. It's dan-
gerous.
Hands off habitat
I was calling in about the
murky situation in the
Hunter Springs area. I reg-
ularly swim in Hunter
Springs. The last time I was
there, the manatees were
congregating in the area
that they're talking about
dredging. They do not go to
the area where the seawall
is because it's not a natural
habitat. I think one of the


I

(


worst things they could do
there would be to extend
that seawall. The one that
is there is already eroding
around the base of it. I
think that that landscape
there is fine, but they need
to concentrate on keeping
it a natural habitat. And if
they have to change their
landscape plans in order to
comply to that, that would
be better than extending
that seawall. Unfortunately,
it's not working out well
with the natural habitat
there.
Finish paving
My question is: Why are
they repaving some of that
area in Homosassa
JND on U.S. 19 or Sun-
Eff coast (Boule-
W vard)... yet U.S. 19
S in Crystal River,
they haven't even
finished paving
that. I've been here
two years and I've
never seen roads
) 5 handled the way
0579 they are...I'm from
further south in
Florida and I've
lived in the Florida area 55
years and I don't under-
stand what they're doing. Is
there some way that some-
one can answer why they're
paving so bad and they're
not finishing that area up in
Crystal River on U.S. 19?
Why out of state?
I have a question about
something I've been want-
ing to know for quite a
long time. I notice.this
mess they have with the
school board where this
money went to the wrong
place or they didn't get it.
What I'd like to know is
why the school has to go
outside the area - even
outside of the state - to
get all these consultants
and whatever they're
doing. They do the same
thing with their sport pro-
grams when they have
somebody make their
sports programs or their
schedules because as a
business owner, I had con-
tacted them and these
people are not even in
Florida. Some are out West
or they're up North. Why
don't we have anybody
local or at least in Florida
that can do this for them,
that they have to give their
advertising business to all
these companies. There's
got to be a reason. I mean
they would save more


money if they stayed in
Florida instead of going
outside of Florida.
Odd justice
Could you tell me the
comparison of Bollea's
sentence, Hulk Hogan's
son, for eight months for
injuring that kid as com-
pared to the kid who took a
12-p'ack of beer? Please,
please, where is the justice?
This obviously must be
Florida. God bless.
Why bother?
Today is May 13. The edi-
torial cartoon tells us to
vote. Why bother since we
all voted in the primaries
and none of us Democrats
got to count. It seems like a
kind of a waste since big
government has decided
what they want and who
they want and they just
eliminate those of us who
vote against them.
What's that?
Would somebody please
explain to me what is a mil-
itary card game? I'd sure
like to know. I read it all the
time but nobody explains
what it is.
Nothing's on
I would like to find out
the reason why we have to
pay approximately $60 a
month or so for cable
when all we see is the
same shows over and over
and over again and again.
There has got to be a way
to do something about
this. Would somebody
please call in and give me
an idea.
Editor's note: Most cable
or satellite providers offer
lower-cost packages that
contain fewer channels. You
could also cancel your cable
subscription.
Serendipitous surfer
In response to May 11
sound off, "Pay more, get
less,'" for the person who is
looking for the Discovery
Health channel, which was
on Bright House channel
71 - my favorite also. It is
on channel 5. I found it by
accident, flipping through
the channels. Enjoy!
Mini mutts
Why do people buy ex-
pensive mini dogs and then
let them run loose? Would
you do that with a baby?
Those little dogs are just a
meal for some wild animal
or a gator.

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


Buy American
Now that President Bush
has got us in a recession,
what a boon to the American
economy it would be if these
mega corporations like Wal-
Mart, Kmart and Target,
Costco, Detroit aircraft com-
panies and so forth started
buying American again. We
wouldn't have to worry about
people putting lead in the
paint and the products that
we buy from cheap overseas
labor. !t would stimulate the
economy. People would have
jobs again. Factories that
have been closed down could
reopen or new ones could be
built, and everybody would
be a little bit better off. And I
think also we don't need to
drill for more oil. We need to
find us some way to get away
from oil products altogether.
OPA
A Sound Off today states
that the U.S. government ini-
tiated the OPA during the
Second World War and it sta-
bilized prices during the war
with price controls. This is
true, but the caller implies
that the prices were con-
trolled merely by an edict.
Actually, the OPA initiated ra-
tioning. The use of gasoline
was controlled because gas
stamps were issued accord-
ing to necessity. No gas was
available for recreation.
Suicidal storage
It is not only illegal, it is
suicidal to keep 110 gallons
of gasoline in your garage,
whatever the price. Not only
that, but by the time you use.
it, it has deteriorated to the
point that you don't get the
mileage per gallon anymore,
so it costs you more. I just:
hope you are not one of my
neighbors.

Save our lakes
I thought the Environmen-
tal Protection Agency was
supposed to save our lakes
and rivers, not kill everything
in them. Right now, Lake
Rousseau has a drip system
that started March 12 and
runs through June 30. They
are dumping hundreds of
gallons of poison to kill the
nonnative plants. This poison
not only kills the nonnative
plants, it kills the native
plants also... It also kills fish
and turtles. We have asked
them to go back to the spray
and dropping pellets, but


they are taking the cheap
way out and dumping poison
into the lake and letting the
current take it down-
river, killing every-
thing in its path,
plus adding muck to
the bottom. When is
this going to stop?
Insult


The House and -.
Senate were correct
to change the school CALL
board's unpopular . 56
evolution teaching 3
rules. Legislators
had a mandate from their
constituents to override the


irresponsible decision by the
small appointed Education
Committee whose actions
were an insult to the
JND .majority of Floridi-
S-ans. That's why we
elect people to of-
fice; to serve our
best interests.,
Sad state


P I'm here to tell
you what a beautiful
L wonderful state we
579 live in. Last Satur-
day my husband
and I were walking
on the new trail behind the
sheriff's office in Inverness.


lIt was awesome. Wildlife
. everywhere - turtles, gar
fish, bass, minnows, ducks,
alligators. My camera could-
n't keep up. Directly to the
left of the helicopter landing
pad outside on the side of
the trail was a 4 1/2-foot al-
ligator sitting there sunning.
We watched it for a long
time. There was a man
throwing peanuts to the fish,
and a baby alligator went
after it and then the 4 1/2-
foot alligator that we were
watching went after it, too.
That's when we saw the fish-
ing line wrapped around its-
bottom jaw. It got about a


foot and then rolled, trying
to get away and it couldn't.
It even had a bobber tagging.
it. I called Animal Control
and got another number
from them. I sat for a while
and told the person of FWC .
the problem, told her where ,
and how to get there. She ',
said she'd call local trappers
that knew the area and send,"
someone right out. I was on ,;
that trail for four hours after.
that and nobody showed up.,.
I went back on Sunday and I
called again because the allis
gator was still there. The
lady was rude and I told her,,
everything. I told here where,.
to go, the address and every(,
thing. I asked her what
would happen to the alliga- -
tor and she said that they ,
don't relocate it, they kill it, -
they harvest it, that it's
going to die. That's insane. 1,+
called to get it help, not a :,
death sentence. I got so mad,
I hung up with that lady and ,
called my husband, who
knows a local trapper. The ,
man came within an hour.
He could not get the alliga-
tor by himself. So here's how.
I see it: A beautiful, living,
breathing.animal is in
Cooter Pond swimming
along and gets caught in
someone's fishing line and
because it got stuck, it has
to die. How wonderful that
makes me feel.
Christian protests
Appointed committees
make bad decisions, and re-
sponsible legislators listen-
ingto voters' protests
overturn those bad deci-
sions. Just thank God that
our state officials changed
the school board's agendas '
on evolution in public
schools. No doubt Christian
protests were heard loudly iri
the state Capitol.

Go-getter takes lead for business women


CHRIS VAN ORMER

Chronicle
Moving into its second year,
the Business Women's Al-
liance welcomes its second
chairwoman, Bonnie Hardi-
man.
A former Citrus County ed-
ucator, Hardiman has been


active in the alliance since its
inception, and through her
business has helped teachers
who were victims of Hurri-
cane Katrina.
Building business connec-
tions and performing charita-
ble work are both goals of the
alliance. "The BWA is not for
slackers," Hardiman said.
Not a slacker herself,
Hardiman retired in 2002 as


the school district's director
of student services. Continu-
ing her work with children,
for a time Hardiman was
president of the Boys & Girls
Clubs of Citrus County She is
currently a fashion coordina-
tor with Weekenders.
When the Business
Women's Alliance started in
2006 as a committee of the
Citrus County Chamber of
Commerce, Hardiman was
among the founding mem-
bers finding a focus by taking
a survey of the membership.
Under the first chairman,
Rhonda Lestinsky, vice pres-


17. With her background in
education, Hardiman plans
to carry on the work with the
camp. The BWA offers speak-
ers for the camp's career day
and runs a "penny harvest,"
which collects loose change

Joanne Talsey spent her $300 economic stimulus check to help pay for adding a new wheelchair ramp to her Homosassa home.


Some Citrus County residents have big plans for their economic stimulus funds


CRISTY LOFTIS

Whether it's savingto pay
for rising gas prices, getting
a perm from a
local beauty
shop or get-
ting that
home im-
provement
project under
way, Citrus
County resi-
dents are tak-
ing advantage
'of their government rebate
checks.
In hopes of stimulating a
lackluster economy, the
U.S. . government sent
checks to more than 130
million taxpayers. Local
residents began receiving
the checks a couple of
weeks ago.
The Chronicle wanted to


know how locals decided to
spend the extra money and
asked readers to send in
their plans for this money.
This is what they had to say:
mu
Homosassa' resident
Joanne Taisey
uses a wheel-
chair because
of her multi-
ple sclerosis.
While she has
a wheelchair
ramp in the
front of her
home, she's
always wor-
ried that if that exit were
blocked, she wouldn't be
able to get out of the house
in an emergency.
With money she's saved
over the years and her $300
stimulus check, Taisey
hired a man to install the
extra ramp. The total cost
was about $950.
"That 300 extra was such


a big help," Taisey said.
M Em
It's time for a visit to
Rhode Island - Inverness
resident Pauline Smith is
using her $300 to visit her
sister.
SEm
U.S. Navy.veteran and In-
verness resident Richard
Spranger is hoping he and
his wife Marilyn get $1,200
- and soon. '
The last weekend in July,
Navy veterans that he
served with will meet in
Cleveland. Ohio, for a 40-
year reunion. They'll also
visit the Rock and Roll Hall
of Fame and Museum.

The $600 that Crystal
River residents Mary and
Marvin Heath are receiving
will go for the basics: gro-
ceries and gas.

The Citrus County Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting for Nature Coast Kayak Tours. Pictured front row: Chamber
Ambassador Rhonda Lestinsky with Preston Lestinsky, Tracy Colson - Owner, Chamber Ambassadors Janet Mayo, Jackie
Marx, Crystal Jefferson and John Porter as the photographer. Nature Coast Kayak Tours offer fully equipped, personalized guided
tours of some of the most scenic waterways in the area. Each tour is limited to a maximum of six people to ensure a quality
experience for all and to minimize the impact on the environment and its inhabitants. Sunrise tours are their specialty. Wildlife
is more active in the early morning hours and because there is less boat traffic and human activity, this time of day is ideal for
wildlife observation and nature photography. All equipment is provided including kayak, paddle, PFD (life vest), and safety whis-
tle. No previous kayaking experience is necessary, though some level of physical fitness is required. The kayaks are comfort-
able, sturdy and have large cockpits for ease of entry and exit. Back supports and foot braces are adjustable and seat cushions /
are standard. Customized and private tours are available upon request. Contact Tracy for your one-of-a-kind kayak tour at (352)

She bought two pairs of

"I sure could have used a

WOMEN
Continued from Page Dl
in Inverness.
"We made some funds from
that which were earmarked
for scholarships for health
and fitness careers," Hardi-
man said. Recipients were
students at Citrus High
School, Lecanto High School
and WTI. Hardiman is plan-
ning another expo in October
"I want to do another sur-
vey to see what members
want," Hardiman said, al-
though the group has many
activities lined up.
The next 'networking
luncheon will be 11:30 a.m.
* May 28 at the Plantation Golf
Resort and Spa in Crystal
River. The luncheons are set
up quarterly by Lestinsky
and Ter-An Consaul, as co-
chairwomen of the luncheon
committee.
"We get a group of business
women intermingling to-
* gether,",Hardiman said when
asked to describe the lunch-
eons. "The last part is cele-
brating birthdays and
anniversaries to keep a per-
sonal touch."


Survey results also re"
vealed a desire of members
to manage their time better.
So a luncheon focusing on
time management with a
guest speaker has been
arranged at 11:45 a.m. July 18
at Citrus Hills Golf and Coun-
try Club.
Looking back at her year in
office, outgoing chairwoman
Lestinsky said, "I'm amazed
by how many new people I
meet at these gatherings. I've
been here a long time, but
I've made many new con-
tacts."
Hardiman feels at home
with the big group of busi-
nesswomen.
"We develop personal rela-
tionships and we have an im-
pact on the business world,"
Hardiman said.
The new chairwoman said
during her tenure she will
follow the BWA's mission
statement: "The Alliance's
mission is to support, develop
and promote all women
through education, mentor-
ing, information exchange,
partnerships and alliances
with other organizations,_and
by promoting opportunities
for all women in Citrus
County."

ATTIC
Continued from Page E6

looks like a regular table, since
religion did not approve gam-
bling. It is solidly built Please
let me know an estimated value
and the best way to market
them. -AD.L, Internet
Dear A.D.L: Your caned
shield back armchair with
closed upholstered sides could
have been made in France, al-
though they were also copied in
England and Germany. It was
likely manufactured during the
first part of the 20th century.
The overall quality appears to
be good. Potential dollar value
is $150 to $300.
The table is called a game
table, or also a card table. Gam-
ing tables developed for games
such as dice, cards, chess,
backgammon, etc., are one of
the earliest specialized types of
tables and have been produced
since the 16th century in all the
various period styles.
I think your game table was
manufactured in America be-
tween the Civil War and the
1890s. The overall quality ap-
pears to be of a high standard.
The fancy burl wood veneered
demi-lune top adds to desir-
ability. Current potential dollar
value is less than $1,000.


Special to the Chronicle
This game table with cover appears to be of a high standard. Po-
tential dollar value is less than $1,000.


John Sikorski has been a
professional in the antiques
business for more than 20

Finding money to-save in tough economic times


D during difficult
economic
' times, we
have to become more
creative in our quest
to save money. De-.
spite the ever-in-
creasing price of
gasoline and gro-
ceries, we still must
remember to pay Monica
ourselves first or we EXTEN
will never be able to
save money. SERI
"66 Ways to Save
Money" (FCS 7152), a helpful
fact sheet from the University
of Florida, provides some great
tips. This information was orig-
inally published by the Con-
sumer Literacy Consortium
and revised by Dr. Josephine
Turner, a certified financial
planner and professor of Fam-
ily and Consumer Economics at
the University of Florida. Let's
examine some of the sugges-
tions:
* Gasoline. This is a big ex-
pense right now as gas prices
surpass $3.50 gallon!
You can save money by com-
paring prices:at different sta-
tions and using the
lowest-octane gasoline recom-
mended for your car in the
owner's manual. Aside from
limiting trips in the car as much
as possible, keeping your en-
gine properly maintained and
keeping your tires inflated to
their proper pressure can save
$100 on gas a year Plan trips so
that you can conserve fuel.
* Electricity. Make sure that
any new appliances you buy are
energy efficient-it will be
listed on the label.
* Telephone service. Check
with your phone company to
see whether a flat rate or meas-
ured service will save you more
money.
* Food. You will spend less
on food if you shop with a list
You can save hundreds of dol-
lars a year ifyou compare price
per ounce or other unit prices
on shelf labels.
* Prescription Drugs. Ask
your physician to prescribe
generic equivalents whenever
possible. Pharmacies differ
widely in costs for various med-
icines, so call around first.
The earlier we start learning
to save money the better.In
2006, Jump$tart Coalition for
Personal Financial Literacy re-
ported that high school seniors
scored.an average of 52.4 per,.,

cial literacy survey.

most teenagers want to know
how to be successful money
managers, according to Charles
Schwab's survey. The Reality
Check Money Camp for teens is
a partnership between Exten-
sion and Consumer Credit
Counseling of Mid-Florida Inc.
This five-day day camp is de-
signed to teach 14- to 18-year-
olds the basics of money
management: Banking, budget-
ing and credit

will learn through hands-on ex-
periences, field trips and Pow-
erPoint presentations. This
year's camp will visit the Fed-
eral Reserve Bank in Jack-
sonville. The cost of the camp is
$30 per teen.
A limited number of scholar-
ships are available because of
the generosity of an anonymous
donor. Pre-registration is re-
quired, please call Cris at 527-

Prepare your trees for storms, hurricanes


Hurricanes and storms
are one of Mother Na-
ture's ways of weeding
out the
sick,
weak and
declining
trees in

allowing
younger

healthier
Kerry Kreider trees a
chance to
mature.
ARBORIST T h i s
method is
very effective for forest floors,
trees and habitats.
However, in urban land-
scape, it is up to the homeown-
ers to take precautions and
responsibility for the health
and well-being of their trees.
There are a few precautions we
should take in preparation for
storms and hurricanes.
Generally, a class two stan-
dard prune provides enough fo-
liage removal to allow wind
penetration on trees with large,
dense crowns that act like sails,
catching wind and rain. Trees
with large amounts of moss that
get very heavy during rainy
conditions and trees with dead
wood are vulnerable to damage
as well.
The National Arborist Asso-
ciation (NAA) tells us that in
certain species of trees, 1/3 of
the canopy can safely be
pruned without removing too
much of the energy-producing
foliage. Other species of trees
can not tolerate this practice of
pruning. A qualified arborist
can explain to you on site, prior
to any work being done, how a
proper class two is performed.
Whenever possible, begin
structural pruning on a tree
when it is young. This will en-
sure strong development as the
tree matures.
Additional precautions in-
clude putting your trees on an
annual feeding program. Feed-
ing programs consists of dry or

liquid fertilizer, micro injec-
tions, wet and dry inoculation
and a number of other meas-
ures. An arborist can identify
the proper type of fertilization
needed based on the site, soil,
drainage and species of the tree.
A healthy tree is a strong tree.


It is usually when the storms
are brewing that people begin
to worry about the safety of
their property. These concerns
should be evaluated before the
threat of a storm. A qualified
expert can identify weak or
problem trees and recommend

Blooms and seeds attractive in coral bean


A Florida-friendly, native shrub used to
Sdeter loot traffic is coral bean, Er\hthrina
L L herbacea. also commonly named the
' Cherokee bean
Though its stems are armed with
prickly thorns, coral bean is touted as
a desirable garden flower by native ,;
k'' plant enthusiasts. It has attractive tri- .'J
foliate leaves, beautiful red, tubular
flowers with copious nectar for hum-
mingbirds and swallowtail butterflies
and striking dark brown seed pods .
that split to expose hard, bright red
seeds.
Coral bean ranges throughout most
- of Florida in Zones 8 to 10. west to Jane
Texas and north to North Carolina. It
grows along roadsides, in dry, open
\woodlands and in well-tended gar- GAR1
dens. Locally, it dies back to the
ground in winter You may prune after the frost
has killed the thinner stems. Thicker ones can
be neatly trimmed and should re-sprout in
spring tirther south, the younggreen stems will
harden with age and become brow\ n and woody
over the years. Prune after flowering for shape
and to promote denser foliage.
Coral bean, shown here, boasts an attractive red
flower spike that makes way for split seedpods
with hard, bright red seeds.
JANE WEBERISpec.aI t, trie Cr.ro-.ore

Flower spikes top a tall stem that usually
emerges in April and May Clusters of bright red,
narrow, tubular flowers crowd the top third of
the stem. Flowering lasts a month, then seed-
pods begin to form. The split seed-
pods with showy beans make an
I unusual addition to dried floral
arrangements
While this perennial grows from an
enlarged underground root, it is
somewhat short-lived. Gardener
Linda Polhill has a gorgeous speci-
men in her Rainbow Springs shrub
border that she planted eight years
ago. It is about 4 feet in diameter and
Veber 3 feet tall. A dozen flower spikes poke
above the leafy bush. Hummingbirds
are daily . visitors to Polhill's coral
DEN bean
Soil should be dry and sand. but
with some natural organic material such as leaf
litter; compost or hunmus. Full sun to partial shade
is the best exposure. Irrigate only w hen estab-
lishing a newly purchased plant Sprouted
seedlings normally can be watered for the first
week or two, then should survive on natural
rainfall No fertilizer is needed for this hardy
Florida native.
Normally pest-free, coral bean could be at-
tacked by stem borers at the leaf tips. Should you

notice wilt from insect damage,
simply cut back well below the
affected tip. Destroy the in-
fected stem. Do not compost it
The attractive seeds are
toxic, so teach children not to
taste any interesting treasure
they find in nature. A dozen
growers offer coral bean for
sale in Florida. Potted
seedlings cost only a dollar or
two. An older plant in a 10-inch-
wide pot may wholesale for up
to $8, resulting in a higher retail
price. A local native plant
grower would be the least-ex-
pensive source. They may have
seed available and provide tips
on how to sprout them.
Site your coral bean where
people can enjoy the striking
foliage, flowers and seed, but
not walk into it Hummingbirds


A local native
