Finally there is some good
news for property taxpayers
on the horizon -though while
many will get a break, it's not
quite that simple. The stew
that will determine taxes for
the coming year is more com-


plicated that it ever has been,
and those who levy taxes will
have to deal with a drop in the
value of the property they can
tax.
The good news, though, is
that many will see lower taxes

Taxpayers might see drop


That coin can have two
sides, though. With market
values down in many if not
most cases, there is less equity
in property, though some ob-
servers have allowed that
property values are down
from artificially high levels
reached in the boom two years
ago, and so gains weren't real,
or at least long term.

While the couple has in-

grossly underinsured and
never realized until now. For
now, friends and family are
helping them with a place to
stay and the necessities.
Steve said it hurts his pride
to ask for help, but the more
he crunches the numbers, the
'more he realizes it's time to
appeal to those who might be
able to help.
"I'm a pretty proud person,
and I don't ask for help, but

Throughout the school year
the students in Maggie Lam-

classes would send packages
to Desmarteau They've sent
cookies, letters, pictures, hy-

Christmas tree complete with
homemade ornaments the
children created in class.
In return, he sent them
videos of him reading the let-
ters, opening.the gifts and re-
sponding to their questions.
The best video was the. one
where Desmarteau per-
formed a spirited dance, ac-
cording to the class.
Using international phone
cards, Desmarteau called the
children four times through-
out the school year, taking
time to speak with each child.
"He has put so much time
into these kids," Lamparelli
said.

For the second consecutive

perform a landmark field study
on a new hearing aid model.
The all new Evok is a small
compact hearing aid that leaves
the ear open to natural sound
and delivers understandable
quality in noisy situations.
In exchange for completing.a

use of this hearing aid for 30
days. My college-degreed audi-

and lab services free of charge

At the end of this thirty day
trial, participants will return the
aids or purchase them with a
generous field study discount.

Principal Belinda Woythaler

It didn't take long before a
line formed so each child
would get a chance to hug the

"Do you think at recess you'
could play football with us?"
Chris Laurin said.


"Why are your pockets
sideways?" Tate Mills Smith
said.
"You could probably come
to my house and ride my
horses," Derwin Gallop said.
One student asked for an
autograph - on his arm.
Another asked if he liked
the cookies she sent.
As celebrated as Des-
marteau's visit may have
seemed, the children each
had their own story about the
soldier they call Bret
"Me and Bret, we talk about
trucks all the time," Tate
Mills Smith said. "He's a cool
U.S. Army guy, like a cowboy"
"He wrote me a letter one
time," Lacie McFarlin said.
"He likes stuffed animals,
and so do I."
When recess came, Des-
marteau played along with
his friends. He raced them


down sidewalks, pitched for
an impromptu game of kick-
ball and gave piggyback rides
and hugs galore.
"He's like one of the little
kids, like us," Ronnie John-
son said.
Desmarteau said what
brought him to Florida to visit
the two classes was the rela-
tionship they all built
throughout the school year.
"There was just this per-
sonal connection," Des-
marteau said. "They called
me 'their soldier.'"
He was impressed with
their patriotism. He was hum-
bled by their dedication.
They thought he was pretty
cool, too.
"He's pretty cool because
he's one of our heroes," Ron-
nie said. "I think he's one of
the lucky ones because some
of the people die."

Chronicle
A Homosassa man was
charged Wednesday with
lewd and lascivious battery
on a child younger than 16
and contributing to the delin-
quency of a child.
Robert Lee Hoffman, 63,
was arrested at his home at
4638 S. Evergreen Terrace,
after a 15-year-old girl de-
scribed an incident that took
place on May 11 at Hoffman's
residence. The girl said Hoff-
man gave her champagne to
drink to celebrate their one-
year anniversary of being
friends, according to a sher-
iff's office report.
The girl told deputies that
she became intoxicated and


sick because she had never
drunk alcohol before. She
said she went into a bath-
room to vomit, according to
the report. After she vomited,
the girl told officers, she re-
moved some clothing to take
a shower. As she sat on the
toilet, Hoffman entered the
room and performed a sexual
act on the girl, according to
the sheriff's office report.
The girl said she complied
because of the alcohol.
When contacted by the sher-
iff's office, Hoffman denied
the sexual act happened and
told officers that he knew the
girl had dreamed of the inci-
dent, according to the report.
Hoffman's bond was set at
$5,500.

DROP
Continued from Page Al

growth generally contributes
new tax money that can buffer
taxpayers from increases by
allowing increased spending
without increasing tax rates.
How that, falling market
values and new exemptions
affect those who levy taxes
will be played out this sum-
mer as budgets and millage
rates are created, but first the
county property appraiser has
to tell them about the value of
the property they can tax, and
the situation is, the pie is
smaller

Single-family
residences
Single-family residences
were down $450 million in
total market value from last
year, even as 1,766 homes
were added to the tax rolls.
The total market value is
about $8.1 billion.
Subdivisions with large
inventories of unsold homes
or areas with lower priced
homes and high rates of
foreclosure have seen the
steepest declines, according
to the property appraiser's
office. The trend continued
in the first quarter of the
year.

Lots still falling
In the case of vacant resi-
dential lots, the market has
virtually collapsed and is
still subsiding, according to
Citrus Property Appraiser


Melanie Hensley Examples
of areas with significant
downward changes in lot
values include the large
subdivisions like Sugarmill
Woods, Citrus Springs, In-
verness Highlands, Crystal
Manor and Pine Ridge,
though many smaller com-
munities have been af-
fected.
Hensley said unimproved
residential lots made up al-
most 17 percent of the total
taxable value in 2006, at
$2.06 billion, and play a sig-
nificant part of the reduced
total taxable value for the
coming year. Estimates are
that the total value for lots
could drop to as low as $1.3
billion, she said.
So while taxes on unim-
proved lots could be sub-
stantially reduced, values
could also be lower than
what some people paid for
them in the run-up and dur-
ing the frenzy of buying in
the boom.

Some exceptions
But generally, lower tax-
able values will equal lower
taxes for property owners in
the coming year - particu-
larly homesteaded home-
owners, thanks to
Amendment 1 - if rates
aren't hiked.
There are some excep-
tions of property holding
value, such as commercial
property, Hensley said. Two
other categories also seem-
ing to hold value are water-
front properties and
residential property with
high deed restrictions and


better amenities, she said.
They will still get some relief
from Amendment 1 if home-
steaded, though.

The 3 percent cap
One thing that is bound to
be confusing for taxpayer
reading their tax bills, Hens-
ley said, is the role Amend-
ment 1 plays in tax
reduction. While it will help
reduce taxes, it will also hin-
der taxpayers in one way.
The legislature left the 3-
percent Save Our Homes as-
sessment cap law for
homesteaded properties the
way it was, she said, and so
homesteaded properties will
see the 3 percent increase in
their assessed value, which
is mandated by law, even as
property values go down.
While it protects against
steeper increases, it also re-
quires the 3 percent in-
crease, she explained. Using
her own taxable value as a
example, she said, with it
going down almost $29,000,
she will see a $217 reduction
in taxes as a result of falling
taxable value and Amend-
ment 1, but it would have
been $37 more in savings if
she wasn't under the cap.

New construction
down
One variable that is always
important in taxes -growth
of the tax base - also comes
into play in the equation,
Hensley said. New construc-
tion is down between about


30 percent from the previous
year (about $376 million in
market value as opposed to
$550 million last year).
That growth allows tax-
ing authorities to maintain
the same tax rate and take
in more money, or actually
reduce the tax rate to take
in the same money (the tax
rate point called "the roll-
back rate").
Usually when the tax roll
is being set with the total
taxable value it's a ques-
tion of will the taxing au-
thorities fall back to that
rollback rate, keep the tax
rate the same and take in
more money based on the
growth paying new taxes, or
perhaps raise the millage
to take in even more money
than this year.

Some exemptions
not for school tax
Since the school portion
of the taxable value was
separated from county-
wide taxes for parts of
Amendment 1, there is a
separate estimate for
school taxes in drop in
total taxable value. For
that purpose, the drop is
about 4.5 percent or $600
million in total value.
In other words, the non-
school total taxable value
for the county went from
$12.38 million in the cur-
rent budget to $10.95 for
the upcoming budget. The
school portion of total tax-
able value dropped from
$12.38 to $11.8 million in

the upcoming budget

Portability
exemption
Amendment 1 included a
portability section that al-
lows homesteaded home-
owners in Florida to
transfer the accumulated 3-
percent cap protection they
had enjoyed in previous
homesteads.
There were 558 portabil-
ity applications filed for
portability, and 253 of them
were from one home in Cit-
rus County to another home
in the county, representing
about $11 million in taxes
saved, according the prop-
erty appraiser's office. The
total portability value that
was removed from the as-
sessment roll is almost $33
million.

Some missed
exemption
Homesteaded homeown-
ers also will get a second
$25,000 exemption between
$50,000 and $75,000 of as-
sessed value. But there are
a total of 10,476 parcels that
will not receive any benefit
from the additional home-
stead exemption, however
because their assessed val-
ues are less than $50,000.
And because that doesn't
apply to school board taxes.
Hensley said, this will obvi-
ously mean changes in the
TRIM (Truth in Millage no-
tices) that are sent out Aug.
15, after taxing authorities
7 � 31 TA 17


set their tentative tax mill-
age rates later this summer.
Another exemption that
will affect tax revenue will
be the new exemption for
businesses, which will get a
$25,000 exemption on the
tangible person property
taxes.

Tax rates, budgets
The county, cities and
other taxing authorities are
currently working on next
year's budgets and the county
property appraiser must to
give them the total taxable
property so they can figure
their tentative tax rates.
Hensley's office must have
that tax roll to them by July 1.
On May 22, though, she said
the property appraisers did-
n't even have all the required
forms from the Department
of Revenue and so it not only
confusing, there's a deadline
crunch approaching.

What they do

So Amendment 1 and the
falling taxable values - by
law based on market values
on January 1, 2008 - are
likely give taxpayers some
relief in the coming budget,
but they will give budget
makers and taxing authori-
ties some hard decisions
based on shrunken re-
sources.
"It's a frightening thing,"
Hensley said of this year's
tax situation. The budgets
and tax rates will be set in
public hearings this summer.

Honda Memorial


Day Sale

On Memorial Day until 9pm, Honda of Ocala
Will Sell New 2008 Accords from just $15,995


Ocala, FL -
If you're in the market for
a new car, truck, sport utility or
minivan, there is no better time
to buy than right now. That's
because now through 9pm
Memorial Day, Honda of
Ocala on SW College Rd. is
announcing the sale of 2008
Honda Accord LX's from just
$15,995. Customers who take
advantage can save up to
$5,200 during this one-day
event.
Honda of Ocala is clearing
out their entire new Honda
inventory to make room for
truckloads of new vehicles one
the way. In order to accomplish
this, Honda of Ocala is offering
discounts up to $5,200. Even
new 2008 Honda Accords
from only $15,995.
"This is a golden opportu-
nity for anyone considering the
purchase of a new Honda
because this one-day event is
your chance to save over
$5,000 on a new Honda," said
Tony Swain, General Manager
for Honda of Ocala. "For
example, the ever-popular and
newly-redesigned Accord - a
leader in its class - loaded with
air, AM/FM stereo, CD player
power windows, power locks,
dual air bags and more is being
offered from just $15,995! You


752566


want another example? This
Memorial day, we're offering
discounts of up to $5,200 on
vehicles like the fuel efficient
Fit, the CR-V, Element,
Odyssey minivan, Pilot,
Ridgeline and more."



"Save up

to $5,2(00

on new

Hondas

until 9pm

Memorial

Day."
- Tony Swain,
General Manager
Honda of Ocala.

While these savings alone
are enough to make this a
Memorial Day customers
won't soon forget, Swain and
his staff at Honda of Ocala will
also make a number of other


offers available to customers,
including 0% financing and
zero down payment.
Additionally, if you have a
car, truck or sport utility for
trade, Honda of Ocala will
allow you to appraise the vehi-
cle on the spot. "All you have
to do is ask to see the Official
NADA Used Car Guide,"
explains Swain, "You'll find
out how much your vehicle is
worth before our sales
representatives do!"
Customers will only have
to bring their trade, tide and
payment book, and then
choose the style and color of
the new Honda they want.
Extra sales representatives and
financing agents will be on-
hand for this 12-Hour
Memorial Day event to process
paperwork and help make
purchasing faster
Again, this 12-Hour
Memorial Day Sales Event will
only be available until 9pm this
Monday. Swain does not
expect inventory to last by that
time, so customers are strongly
encouraged to take advantage
early in the morning.
Honda of Ocala is located
on SW College Road, East of
1-75. Interested consumers
should contact the dealer
directly at 1-866-824-6653.

Father-son adventure


Special to the Chronicle
Jay Conti Sr. and his son, Jay Conti Jr., always wanted to see a Yankees vs. Red Sox
game in New York City. After Jay Sr. retired from the Navy they were able to go to see
the Yankees play the Red Sox in a four-game series. They also visited many sites in
New York, including the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island - the place where Jay Sr.'s
father came to the United States in 1948. They went to the Ellis Island "Wall of
Honor" and Jay Jr. saw his grandfather's name on the wall. They joined the Statue of
Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation and placed their names on the wall to honor Jay Sr.'s
parents for coming to America to make a better life for them and to be free. The words
of Jay Sr.'s father when he first set eyes on the Statue of Liberty In 1948 were, "Lib-
erta, liberta," which in Italian means, "Freedom, freedom."

Bicycling Burgundy: An


economical French escape


Editor's note: This is part
three of a six-part series.
The first two articles in this
series proposed climbing
32,300 feet while bicycling 15
loops in Burgundy. We se-
lected dates, reserved places
to stay, bought airline tickets,
reserved bicycles and rented
a car.
By March 14, we needed
train tickets to and from Bur-
gundy. My flight arrives at
Charles de Gaulle airport at
7:55. a.m., one-and-a-half
hours after my friend's flight
Traveling to Gare de Lyon -
the train station with service
to the east and south - on
the regional rail into Paris
takes an hour. I also needed
time for possible flight de-
lays, clearing immigration,
finding luggage, customs and
taking a much-needed deep
breath.
As a result, we selected the
12:58 p.m. train, which ar-
rives in Dijon at 2:37 p.m. For
the return to Paris, I picked
the Saturday train directly to
the airport, departing Dijon
at 7:44 a.m. and arriving at
9:33 a.m.. The cost of two
roundtrip tickets with deliv-
ery in the United States is
$342.
Other items to budget for
this trip include the trip into
central Paris (8 each). rental
car fuel (about 75) and gro-
ceries and restau-
rant meals (1,100
for two). My bud-
geted land costs in
France comes to
$153.09 per day. In-
eluding airfare,
:he cost is $230.14
per day. This is far
less costly than any
advertised French
bicycle tour,, in- WAI
2ludes all costs JUD
and allows riding MO
loops not other-


wise published. By
the way, the estimated land
2osts for four people travel-
ing together is $121.83 per
person per day.
- For all this planning, what
Jo I want? Fun and great sat-
isfaction. I must capture im-
ages and locate places that a
N traveler and bicyclist will ap-
preciate and add value to
their excursion. Moreover, I
will ride and climb for a
.0w fourth year in Burgundy,

and south.


learn more about how these
particular Frenchmen live
and define their way of life,
and perhaps gaina better un--
-derstanding of this region's
history.
Our location for
the first two rides
is the hotel over-
looking Lac les
Settons, an hour
plus west of
Beaune - one
easy and one chal-
lenging loop, cover-
48 miles climbing
2,888 feet.
XTER From the Chitry-
SON les-Mines gite, or
DRE holiday cottage, we
plan to ride three
loops in the Parc
Naturel Regional du Morvan
and three loops west of the
Canal du Nivernais. The dis-
tance for these rides is 295
miles climbing 15,250 feet.
On the drive to Nantoux on
the second Saturday, the plan
is to cycle from Arnay-le-Duc
to Autun and return, a dis-
tance of 48 miles with an as-
cent of 2,400 feet
From Nantoux in the Bur-
gundy wine region, we want


to bicycle six more loops with
a total distance of 192 miles
and with 11,840 feet of climb-
ing.
W.ithf tlerable weather- I
am not going To sitinra gite-
during a cool, drizzly day
after paying $1,380 just for
airfare- I will make a deter-
mined effort to ride 583
miles. My big test is to climb
32,300 feet.
The plan is to bicycle 43
percent more distance each
day of riding and climb 33
percent more as compared to
last year. However, we will
climb an average of 55.4 feet
per mile as compared to 53.3
feet per mile in 2007, a
measly 4 percent increase.
(Whom am I really trying to
convince?)
In the fourth part of this se-
ries, I will tell you about the
first five or six days in Bur-
gundy this year.

Citrus County Heroes coordinator; Foster; Marie Foster - mother; and Bruce Foster - father.



Hero returns with bronze stars


Special to the Chronicle
On May 4, a special heroes'
welcome was observed at the
home of Bruce and Marie
Foster for their son Air Force
Capt. Keith Foster, who re-
turned home from his second
tour of duty from Iraq, as fam-
ily and friends gathered in
his honor, which was also lis
birthday.
In eight-plus years of serv-
ice to his country, Foster is
well on his way to being the
model officer in the Air Force
by exceeding his personal
goals and the goals set forth
in the U.S. Air Force in Ad-
vancementand Awards man-
ual. Foster is a Security
Force Specialist and was
rated by the division chief as
the top 1 percent of Air Force
captains the division chief
has ever supervised.
Stateside, Foster is sta-
tioned at Hanscom Air Force
Base, Mass,. During his sec-
ond tour of duty in Iraq, he


(developed and managed
plans to train 200,000 Iraqi
police and procure
$225,000,000 in vital equip-
ment, weapons systems and
vehicles. He researched, pre-
pared and presented strate-
gic plans for Iraqi police
initiatives to the commanding
general and deputy com-
manding general. His plans
were approved and imple-
mented, and as a direct result
training goals were met for
the first time in six months.
He led vulnerability as-
sessments for 18 Iraqi police
academies; planned, man-
aged and coordinated
$100,000,000 for facility up-
grades and antiterrorism ini-
tiatives. Foster was
responsible for coordinating
more than 200 combat patrols
and led more than 80 of the
missions and achieved a
zero-percent mishap rate.
Foster is stationed with the
66th Security Force Squadron
and is a graduate of Citrus


High School class of 1996.
Previous tours of duty have
taken him to places the aver-
age person has never heard
of, including Kyrgyzstan,
which boarders China to its
northwest and is sandwiched
between the countries of
Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and
Uzbekistan. Foster not only
earned a bronze star in his
first tour of duty in Iraq, but
earned his second bronze star
for his combat activities this
tour of duty.
Foster is a highly deco-
rated officer with earning the
Bronze Star - two awards,
Air Force Commendation
medal - three awards, Air
Force Achievement medal,
Army Achievement medal,
Iraqi Campaign Service
medal, Global War on Terror-
ism Expeditionary medal,
Global War on Terrorism
Service medal, National De-
fense Service medal, Out-
standing Unit Award - seven
awards and numerous cer-


tificates of commendation
from generals and other per-
sonal medals and ribbons.

Lecanto football takes 27-0


S ION-MICHAEL SORACCHI
jmsoracchi@
chronicleonline.com,
Chronicle

The football game between
Lecanto and Umatilla was a
glorified practice Saturday
pight,
But it didn't seem to
damper the Panthers' enthu-


siasm with the outcome.
Lecanto turned a tight
scrimmage with the Bulldogs
into a lopsided win following
three fourth-quarter touch-
downs during a 27-0 romp.
"None of the varsity kids
know what it feels like to
win," said Lecanto coach Ron
Allan. "It just shows the effort
these kids have put in in the


offseason."
Jimmy Hamrick .had two
rushing touchdowns for
Lecanto with Tim Mobley
and Jared Adams also scored
on the ground.
The star of the show was
Lecanto's defensive unit As a
whole, the Panthers domi-
nated the line of scrimmage
and yielding just 58 yards ohn


40 carries on the night
Lecanto also sacked
Umatilla quarterback Eric
Steifield three times and ha-
rassed the Bulldogs into two
interceptions and a fumble.
Mobley and Rob Pinter
each had picks while Matt
Crocker recovered a fumble
on the contest's final play.

Ashley Brower: ATHLETE OF THE YEAR NOMINEE


Chronicle file photos, photo illustration Dy JOHN COSCIA

Lecanto soccer star scored 72 goals for district champion Panthers


ALAN FESTO
afesto@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
At first glance, Lecanto soccer
player Ashley Brower doesn't ap-
pear to be much of a threat on the
pitch. Standing only five feet tall,
Brower has always been over-,
looked and underestimated... at
least at the beginning of a game.
"The best time for me to play is
the first five to 10 minutes be-


cause they (opponents) aren't ex-
pecting how fast or how aggres-
sive I am," Brower said. "They
think 'Oh she's just small, she
can't really do anything."'
That "small" girl dominated the
soccer region this past season,
scoring a county record 72 goals on
her way to becoming Regional
Player of the Year and making first-
team all state. Brower was quick to
point out she also had 36 assists.
Brower will also be represent-


ing Florida in the International
Scholar Athlete game.
"It's pretty much the Olympics
for high school students," she said.
It marks the end. of a brilliant
four-year career that 'started in
Kentucky and ended at Lecanto.
Brower put a total of 114 shots in
the back of the net her first three
years in the Bluegrass State to fin-
ish high school with 186 goals.
' "I'm not the most accurate
player whenever it comes to


shooting, but I will keep at it until
I get the goal in," she said.
Adding Brower to the Lecanto
squad was a pleasant surprise for
head coach Kevin Towne, who lost
his top scorers to graduation the
previous year.
"Everyone thought, as did I, that
the scoring was going to be a down,
a bit," Towne said.
Brower's mother changed all
that when she got a job offer she
couldn't refuse and moved the


family to Citrus County.
It was actually the third time in
Brower's life she was moved to the
county The first being when she was
very young and then again when she
was in fourth and fifth grade.
It was at those young ages that
Brower developed her aggressive
play and toughness.
"I've always played in much
older age groups with the guys,"
See BROWER/Page B4


Record broken


at CR triathlon


LARRY BUGG
For the Chronicle
Iftriathletes were knighted,
one of them could have been
the winner of the Saturday
Crystal River Sprint 1
Triathlon. .
: Spencer Smith, formerly of
Twickenham, England, sped
over the course in a record
time of 55:57 to win the Me-
morial Day event. The two-
time world champion easily
broke the record of 59:29 set
in 2007 by Graham Steele.
Smith has won two adult
world titles and won one jun-
ior world title as well as three
European titles.
The 35-year-old currently
calls Palm Harbor his home.
"In terms of the competi-
tors, you make it as hard as
you want to make it," Smith
said. "I wanted to do a nice
hitout today and it was per-
fect for what I wanted."
Smith said he has never be-
fore competed in a race with
a 15-mile bicycle ride, such as


the Crystal River race. Most of
his other races involved 12-
mile rides.
"I'm happy that it's the
fastest time that's been done
on the course," Smith said. "I
live just down the road (Palm
Harbor). It was an easy race to
come to.
"It's so easy (the course). It's
nice to do a no-brainer where
its out and back, out and back,
the less complicated the bet-
ter. It was perfect It's a great
race for preparation."
See RECORD/Page B4
Crystal River Triathialon Se-
ries participants Nina and
Steve Childs of Team A-1
Alarms make their way to-
wards the halfway point of
the run portion of the event
held Saturday morning at Ft.
Island Gulf Beach. The event
marked Nina's first triathlon.
Hundreds of participants
gathered Saturday in near
perfect conditions to com-
pete in the first of three
races In the series.

but the Panthers held a 6-0
lead.
Adams, Lecanto's pro-
jected starting quarterback,
widened the gap with a game-
breaking 50-yard gallop to the
end zone on the first play of
the fourth quarter. Adams
finished with 88 yards on the

she said. "I think that really
helped me improve."
Brower also participated in
gymnastics and naturally de-
veloped extremely strong legs.
Those legs came in handy
after Brower fractured her
back when she was eight years
old.
"I was allowed to do gym-
nastics again after eight weeks
but I could do anything else
after six," she said.
Brower couldn't wait eight
weeks, so she began playing
soccer.
Playing with the boys, she
quickly began to excel at the
sport Not as good as some of
the boys but head and shoul-
ders above the rest of the girls.
Brower didn't play on a girls
team until high school.
Brower broke scoring
records all three years she
played in Kentucky and was
second in the state in scoring
her sophomore and junior year


RECORD
Continued from Page B1

A record crowd of close to
300 competitors took part on a
beautiful, sunny morning
The Pirates Relay team from
Crystal River finished second
with a time of 58:32.
Bellair's Al Steck was third
with 58:36 to win the Clydes-
dale division.
Tampa's Andres Munera
was fourth with a time of
1:00.44.
"I feel good," Munera said.
"Good competition. At certain
points, I knew there was no way
I could catch him (Smith). (I've
won this) a couple of times."
Tampa's Kelby Roberts took
the men's masters title with a
time of 1:06.04. He was eighth
overall.
Lecanto resident Bob Brock-
ett, 53, was happy to be able to
race. He suffered a broken
humerus in four places on his
left shoulder due to a car acci-
dent in December, 2007. Brock-
ett and Dunnellon's Danny
Stevens organized the first
race years ago.
"It was my first race back,"
said Brockett "I got hit by a
truck on the way to a race in In-
verness. I had a good orthope-
dic surgeon, Tom Wright, in
Gainesville. He put on a plate
and 10 pins. I broke 1:10 (fin-
ishing 21V with a 1:09:55).
That's what I wanted to do."
Odessa's Tracy Parker took

ground on nine carries,
which helped offset a rough
.2-of-15 passing performance.
Hamrick, the Panthers'
third quarterback, even got
into the action by hitting
Peter Burris on a 31-yard
pass to the Bulldogs' 2 then
calling his own number for a
score on the next play.
Hamrick finished
Lecanto's offensive output by
taking off on a broken pass
play and scrambling 19 yards


When she made the move to
Lecanto, Towne noticed her
skills immediately.
"It took about five minutes
to find out we had someone
special," he said. "She's just a
natural goal scorer, by far the
best we've had to date.
"Her shot release and.quick-
ness when she had the ball on
her foot is unbelievable,"
Towne continued. "Speed
kills, and she definitely has it"
The next beneficiary of
Brower's skill and speed will
be Barry University in Miami
Shores.
"They have a very strong,
young team," Brower said.
She will receive a partial
athletic and academic schol-
arship to the private univer-
sity. If successful on the field,
she has the chance to earn a
full scholarship.
Brower previously visited
the school and quickly felt at
home.
"I felt like I was already part
of the team," she said.
As much as Brower enjoys
playing soccer, she made it
clear that her intentions at the


the women's title for the sec-
ond straight year She finished
16th overall with a time of
1:09.02.
"I was excited to come out
and do this race," said Parker.
"I do this every year. It is a
great one to kick offthe season.
It's fast It's flat You can let
loose and go. I am using this as
a warmup. I am going to Van-
couver (British Columbia,
Canada) to race in the short
course for amateur team USA.
I am a mom with three kids.
"It's perfect There wasn't a
big head wind or tail wind. You
could get into a groove and
throw the hammer down on
the bike."
Alyssa Burkart, 16, of Winter
Garden, was the second over-
.all female. The cross country
runner at Ocoee High School,
was 25th overall with a time of
1:10.37.
"I like it (the course)," she
said. "The bicycle course is a
little long. It's really flat You
don't have any hills. (Her time)
was pretty good. I had a good
run. It was kind of hot but it
was still fun. I want to do the
whole series here."
A local veteran of the race,
Phil Royal, 39, came home for
the weekend from the FBI
Academy in Virginia, to com-
pete in the race. He finished
71st overall with a time of
1:18.34.
Dunnellon's Robert Stevens,
50, finished 39th with a time of
1:14.18.
Jim Busk of Homosassa ran


for the Panthers' final touch-
down.
In the post-game huddle,
Allan told his players to enjoy
the victory but said it would-
n't mean much if they didn't
continue to work hard in the
weight room.
"We have to take this for
what it is: a glorified scrim-
mage," Allan said. "They
should feel good about win-
ning but they need to con-
tinue working hard."


school are to pursue a master's
degree in athletic training and

With Brower's skill and de-
termination, there isn't any
reason to believe she won't be
successful at both.

was celebrating a recent major
weight loss.
The triathlon drew between
270 and 300 competitors and
race director Chris Moling was
very happy with the turnout
and the results.
"I't s our biggest turnout for

Franklin's

message

must live
om Franklin knew a lot
about the history of
Citrus County. And he
had some pretty firm opin-
ions about its future.
That makes Tom's sudden
death on May 9 a tragedy for
the entire community. The
61-year-old businessman
died of an apparent heart at-
tack while driving to dinner
in Inverness.
Tom had always been in
the background of Citrus
County politics, but he de-
cided to become a player last
year when he announced that
he was going to run against
incumbent County Commis-
sioner Vicki Phillips. If it's
possible to imagine, he be-
came the frontrunner in a
race where taxpayer dissatis-
faction puts every incumbent
at a disadvantage.
I had a lot of conversations
with Tom over the last year
about his views on Citrus
County's future. He loved to
talk about ideas. And that's
what made him so different
from the traditional candi-
date who wants to challenge
an incumbent
He had ideas.
He understood the com-
plexity of the problems that
face the county and he re-

We need
Those of you that have
read my columns for
some time know that I
try not to let emotions get in
the way of what I am trying to
say. However, I have never
been more frustrated in my
life over the energy issue,
which is wrecking havoc with
our country.
The problem is a self-in-
flicted wound with plenty of
blame to go around.
In the early '70s, I was on
the Power Subcommittee of
the Commerce Committee in
the U.S. Congress. I was also
on the Space Committee, and
served on the subcommittee
that was in charge of energy
research and development
Energy was a non-issue until
we had the oil embargo in the

a country we worked on the
periphery of green power,
with windmills, geothermal
energy and ethanol.
As I speak, do radio shows
and talk to people at little
league games and food
stores, the question is always
the same: Why is the price of
gasoline so high? The answer
is simple; we import over 60
percent of our oil. We don't
have other major energy
sources that can be used as
an offset. Furthermore, we
have nothing in the works
that is going to change what is
happening. The way we are
going, someday we are going
to look back at a $4.00 per gal-
lon cost for gasoline and talk
about the "good old days."

sense. We should make every

With worldwide demand ex-

eign oil has skyrocketed to
unimagined heights with devas-
tating consequences for the
American economy. Gasoline
prices are out of control. Food
prices are spiraling upward.
Power generation costs are
climbing incessantly. The trade
deficit, driven by over a half tril-
lion dollars for foreign oil, is bal-
looning. And, the purchasing
power of the once almighty dol-
lar is tumbling. ,
At the micro level, financially
strapped Americans, who have
seen little if any income growth,
are reining in their lifestyles to
meet basic needs. While many
_Americans are adopting belt-
tightening strategies at home,
the macro strategies pursued by
the White House and Congress
are basically the same wrong-
headed policies that created the

of 300,000 barrels per day. This
humiliating groveling at the feet
of Saudi oil barons by the leader
of the world's superpower does
nothing to promote America's
energy independence.
Congress, while pointing the
blame finger at U.S. oil company
executives, continues to perpet-

locked in shale, the Senate Ap-
propriations Committee re-
cently refused to end its
moratorium on oil shale devel-
opment in Colorado. Despite 20
billion barrels of oil in Alaska's
Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
(ANWR) and another 30 billion
barrels offshore, Congress con-
tinues to block drilling as a
short-term bridge to long-term
energy independence.
America's energy challenges
are no longer theoretical. Real
people are struggling with a cost
of living that is forcing the alter-
ing of lifestyles to meet basic
needs. To overcome this eco-
nomic quandary, the White
House and Congress must gar-
ner the political will to replace
its wrong-headed polices with
short- and long-term strategies
that optimize America's techno-
logical know-how and entrepre-
neurial spirit to achieve energy
independence.
America can no longer afford
to be held hostage to foreign oil.
However, until the White House
and Congress seriously act to
stabilize energy costs, the Saudis
and their OPEC partners will
control America's energy future
and the way Americans live.

LETTERS to the Editor


Fiscal irresponsibility
Your May 13 editorial on the col-
lapse of the real estate market and
your call for better regulation of
lending agencies was right on the
mark, but you might want to re-
think your suggestion that the gov-
ernment should "...help bail out
homeowners facing foreclosure
due to high mortgage costs and de-
clining home value."
To "bail out" those who bor-
rowed more than they could repay
is to reward financial irresponsi-
bility. Escalating home values in-
duced many homeowners to take
out sub-prime variable interest
loans. With no thought for the fu-
ture, they spent their newfound
wealth on home improvements
and other amenities to enhance
their lifestyles. When the interest
on their loans skyrocketed, they
found themselves with nothing in
.the bank to absorb the increased
burden. In short, they gambled and
they lost.
Actually, this lack of a fallback
position was simply a manifesta-
tion of what has become common
practice among American con-
sumers. The Commerce Depart-
ment reports that in the last
quarter of 2007, the national sav-
ings rate dropped to a minus 0.5
percent This means that Ameri-
cans not only spent all their after-
tax income, but dipped into
savings or borrowed. This has oc-
curred only twice in U.S. history-
1932 and 1933.
Additionally, the Federal Re-
serve Board estimates that in the
final quarter of 2007, 14.32 percent
of the average household's income
went to pay off debts, the highest
level since the Board started keep-
ing track
Our capitalist economy thrives

Propaganda or treason?
On the front page of the April 20
New York Times was a story about
75 retired military officers who
were used as expert military ana-
lysts on TV The administration
called them "message force multi-
pliers."
Even though many knew that
the war was a stupid idea, and the
case for WMD's very weak, they
feared to lose their contacts with
the administration and the Penta-
gon by not pandering the propa-
ganda of the day. When reporters
on the ground were talking about


disaster, the retired officers spoke
uniformly of good cheer and vic-
tory. They were regularly briefed
by Rumsfeld and the message to
dupe the public was decided
upon.
"It was them saying, 'We need to
stick our hands up your back and
move your mouth for you,"' one
said. Each expert framed his
broadcast, after specific warnings
not to make their commentaries
too uniform. Rumsfeld com-
mented upon how well he was get-
ting out the message through
these retired military. Tellingly,
Gen. Petraeus met with the group
shortly after getting command in
Iraq and before every report to
Congress.
They were taken in a plane usu-
ally used by Cheney to tour Guan-
tanamo and came back cheering
for the humane treatment of the
prisoners, even though many
human rights organizations were
appalled at the inhumanity of our
government. They were used to
counter "the revolt of the gener-
als"; when six retirees came out
speaking the truth. One or two
who were honest and began to re-
port truth were fired by the net-
works.
The reason that the retired offi-
cers were so compliant was be-
cause, like most high-ranking
military retirees, they were in-
volved in military contracts
and/or lobbying the Pentagon. So
like sheep, for the bucks, they
echoed the Pentagon and admin-
istration line. Like Armstrong
Williams and a couple of other
commentators, they touted the ad-
ministration's line for money and
influence. Interestingly, the net-
work and cable news are silent on
this article.
It is illegal for the U.S. govern-
ment to propagandize its citizens.
As for me, I don't call it propagan-
dizing, I call it treason.

paying an increased rate for
this year's services, I find a
$3.06 fuel charge added to
my bill. Well, I have to pay
more for gasoline, too, and
nobody subsidizes my in-
come so I can keep up the
lifestyle I'd like to maintain.
When I have a bill
JND to pay, I don't get
the amount re-
ROtF duced because I
have some unex-
pected expenses.

have to suck it up

company ac-

the current year and should
be made to honor it.
Care for your own
I just wanted to talk
about the article about the
employees for the county
getting their benefits taken
away. How fair is that
when they're, you know,
the people that are the
ones that help make the
county what it is and
you're going to punish
them for doing a good job?
I think that maybe you
could go to a four-day
work week and help save
one full day a week on
electricity and fuel and
whatever instead of taking
benefits away from them.

It's a small world
How much more do we have to put up
with? Smaller bottles, smaller cans,
smaller packages, higher prices. This is
totally ridiculous. Now you pick up the
newspaper and you can't even read it.
The print is so small. Everything is so
small and we're paying more
money. You people are all saving 0
money, but we're losing money
and we can't even enjoy our
morning newspaper anymore.
Thank you, St. Pete Times,

popular solutions.
Some of his solutions might
not have worked, but others
were creative and had great
potential.
It was difficult for Tom to
start his own campaign be-
cause he was a behind-the-
scenes kind of guy. He started
his careers as a journalist and
worked with newspapers, tele-
vision stations and radio sta-
tions in Florida and in Africa.
Journalists are trained as
observers and recorders of
events - not as participants in
those events. So Tom had to

minor. A few weeks ago there was a
story about a Mrs. Lafave, who received
about two years for a similar incident
when she had sex with one of her minor
students. She then violated her proba-
tion but received no jail time and was
not required to register as a sex of-
fender. Although there are minor differ-
N ences in the cases, our
J uniformed code of justice
should not allow such inconsis-
tencies in sentencing based on
what county or judge hears your
case.
A house for a bike
I'm calling to respond to the
woman who called about her
having her son's dirt bike stolen
0579 off her front porch...It's out in
the open. What was the bike
doing out in the open for the crooks to
steal? If you leave your bike or anything
out in the open and you don't lock. it up,
they're going to steal it. Put it in a
shanty. Go buy a little shed, build a little
shed, build a little building or do some-
thing. But, like the police say, lock your
things up. It is not a safe world we live
in...Lock your things up - simple.


make a stretch to get involved
in the political process, but he
was so concerned aboutthe fu-
ture of this county that he
made that commitment
He was an entrepreneur in
Citrus County who over the
years got involved in publish-
ing his own newspaper, start-
ing up a cable television
station and working as the
manager ofWYKE TV and nu-
merous local television sta-
tions. His love of history was
evident'by his volunteer work
with the county historical soci-
ety and his work as a teacher at
Central Florida Community
College where he taught the
class on Citrus County history.
There was a memorial event
Wednesday evening on the
front lawn of the Old Court-


house in Inverness for Tom
and a number of his friends
took the time to say some nice
things.
One of the most significant
insights was offered by Gene
McGee, a Citrus County native
who now works as a lobbyist in
Tallahassee. McGee, who was
helping Tom with his cam-
paign, noted that "Tom saw a
politically divided and trou-
bled community
"Now understand this: Tom
didn't run for the money. He
didn't run for fame or power or
out of boredom or because of
ego. Tom didn't run to be some-
body He ran to do something..
He didn't run because he dis-
liked his opponent In fact, he
thought of her as a friend and
believed she was well mean-

property taxes go down."
McGee went on to say, "Tom
used to say that, pound for
pound, Citrus County was the
most charitable and caring
community around and Tom's
dream was to bring that atti-
tude back to the public square.
Tom's dream was to be a uniter,
not a divider Tom's dream was
that all the citizens of this
county become involved, in-
formed and unified and he was
offering to show us the way."

smart Tom didn't run to ad-
vantage one group over an-
other or to shift power in the
county He saw a need and with
a servant's heart, wanted to be
a force to bring Citrus County
together
"Tom's campaign had barely
begun and he didn't get to com-
municate his message or share
his dream. His message was
that we are all in this together
Tom lamented the fact that re-
tirees wanted higher impact
fees so their property taxes
wouldn't go up. He thought it
was misguided that builders
wanted ad valorem taxes to go
up so that impact fees could go
down. Tom wanted to lead ALL
the citizens ofthe county to de-

that's a personal loss for some

his message of bringing com-

should not be lost
We can't afford for that to
