ABOVE: Candace Booth is looking for ways to preserve the property where Dessle Smith Prescott lived in Citrus County since the 1970s. Booth has man-
aged to keep the property on Lake Russo, but maintenance and other daily responsibilities have gone by the wayside. She hopes to be able to turn the
property into a place where Dessle can be remembered for her contributions to Florida cracker lore. BELOW: This undated photo of Dessie is believed to
have been taken while she owned and operated the Withlacoochee River Lodge. In 1999,,Dessle was inducted into the Florida Women's Hall of Fame.

Gold scrap selling big at Roadshow,

BY ARCHIE DAVIS wo Roadshow Representative Staff Writer

collection sold at the Roadshow for more than
$2,000. Other visitors brought a variety of items
including coins, toys, dolls and trains. Admission
is free and no appointment is necessary.
Crystal River Clean out your attics, closets
and lock box, the Roadshow is coming to town.
Roadshow experts are in town all this week
purchasing antiques and collectibles.


While the Roadshow will accept anything that s
old, they are focusing on gold and silver, also
coins made before 1965, military items, musical
instruments, pocket and wrist watches. Modem
jewelry with diamonds and other precious stones
are also being accepted.
One person who attended the Roadshow brought
in an 1864 Civil War sword and a coin collection

$355.00 they received for broken gold jewelry.
Jeff Parsons, the president of the Treasure Hunters
Roadshow explained what the show is all about.
It s a chance for anyone to sell their stuff and get
what it s really worth he said. It seems everyone has
'items they have wondered about or want to sell but
really don t know where to go said Parsons. He said
the show has been in over 600 cities since 2001.
All this weekRoadshow experts will be accepting
various types of antiques and collectibles.

greater than the compensa-
tions. I talked morosely with
my friend Dessie. I do not
think she understood my tor-
ment, for she is simple and
direct and completely ad-
justed to all living. She only
knew that a friend was in
trouble.
She said, "We'll take one of
those river trips we've talked
about. We'll take that eight-
een-foot boat of yours with a
couple of outboard motors
and put in at the head of the
St John's River We'll go
down the river for several
hundred miles."
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
"Cross Creek"

Dessie was born in 1906 in
the backwoods of Alachua
County, in a place called Is-
land Grove.
Her father was killed when
she was 2. Her mother, Sally
Morrison, died of pneumonia
when she was 12.
She grew up poor, which
meant finding ways to live off
the land.
Dessie hunted and fished
to stay alive and feed her fam-
ily. She cleaned, skinned and
prepared what she caught.
The rumor was she could
shoot better than any man.
After escaping an over-
bearing aunt who encour-
aged the tomboy to trade her
pants for dresses and later
living with a brother in New
York, Dessie made her way
back to Island Grove.
Dessie was 29 when she
met Pulitzer Prize-winning
author Marjorie Kinnan
Rawlings made famous by
"The Yearling." It was 1935
and Rawlings was 15 years
Dessie's senior.
Rawlings had moved with
'her husband to an orange
grove in the nearby town,
Cross Creek a day's walk
from Dessie's place.
Dessie taught the struggling
northerners how to live offthe
land and took Rawlings on a
historic trip up the St John's
River to Jacksonville.
Men protested their plan.
Maps showing the route
through the hyacinth-filled,
mazelike waterways were out
of date. Getting lost in hun-
dreds of miles of false chan-
nels wasn't just a possibility;
it was reality.
But Dessie was persistent,
despite Rawlings' attempt to
back out on the morning it
came time to leave.
The adventure is detailed
in Rawlings' memoir, "Cross
Creek"

The canvas lay limp in-
stead of taut, and our feet
hung over one end and our
heads over the other, so that
we were disposed like
corpses on inadequate
stretchers. The crossed oars
slid slowly to the muck, the
mosquito bar fluttered down
and mosquitoes were about
us in a swarm. Dessie
reached under her cot for her
light rifle, propped it be-
tween us, and balanced the
mosquito bar accurately on
the end of its barrel.
"You can get more good out
of a .22 rifle than any other
kind of gun," she informed
me earnestly.
-Marjorie Kinnan
Rawlings,
"Cross Creek"

This was the first account
of Dessie set in print, but far
from the last.
The backwoods pioneer
seemed to have a knack for
charming novelists and jour-
nalists.
Her tale was told in news-
papers and books; her
recipes catalogued in cook-
books.
She was a Southern
Cracker, outdoor guide and
wife to six husbands.
She wore boots, pants and
rarely left home without a hat
Give her a gun and a few
acres of woods or a fishing
pole and river or stream and
Dessie would take care of
dinner.
She was a provider and sto-
ryteller.
She cooked with buckets of
grease.
Dessie's resume was vast
and varied.


She joined the Women's
Army Corp during World War
II and ended her stint as a
captain.
People say she was the first
woman in Florida to get a
pilot's license.
She worked as waitress,
cook, hairdresser, building
.inspector and sold cars and
real estate.
Dessie owned and man-
aged the old Withlacoochee
River Lodge in Inglis.
In 1999, Dessie was in-
ducted in the Florida
Women's Hall of Fame.

She outlived six husbands
and she knew the natural
world and the ways of ani-
mals with an intimacy that
few others could claim.
All this was accomplished
because she had what old-
timers called grit, grit as in
fortitude, perseverance and
strength of character She
knew what she wanted and
she went out and worked for
it...
A consummate storyteller,
she had the gift of gab and
though her speech could be
rough, her heart was as warm
as a freshly stoked wood
stove.
People like me, who were
lucky enough to spend time
with her, came away
charmed and feeling privi-
leged to have met such an un-
fettered soul.
Steve Arthur, former
Chronicle columnist/
reporter, October2002

Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
and Dessie didn't last

There's a new club in Ho-

children line up monthly to
gain entry into Homosassa El-
ementary School's media cen-
ter
This school year, faculty
members are hosting book
club nights. Each month
school personnel pick a
theme based on a genre.
On Nov. 20, parents and stu-
dents gathered for an evening
a.ll.about animals.
...,,reschool through second-


story. On the other side of the
media center, third- through
fifth-graders and their par-
ents asked each other fact or
fiction questions about ani-
mals.
Then, the children nibbled
on animal crackers and
grabbed supplies to create an-
imal-themed, literary game
boards.
"The good thing is the kids
are here because they want to
be," said Susan Taylor, Ho-
mosassa Elementary volun-
teer.


"We make it a priority to
come," Edwards said about
book club. Bayley mentioned
she loves the crafts.
Betty Bryant, great aunt of
second-grader Stephanie
Jones, said book club makes
learning to read interesting
for the children. In every fun
activity there is a comprehen-

love books," Lisa said.
Debby Kenney, media spe-

fosters a love of learning. Scott

important because compre-

about the literacy game.
The parents and students
walked away from the event
with more than educational

books to read, which they are
allowed to keep.
Students earn patches by
reading the book of the month

books.
Parents do not have to pay
for the books. The book club is
free; the lessons are invalu-
able.
The Rotary Club of Ho-

Geoff Greene's first major
chore in preparing for his new
- job as the Citrus County prop-
erty appraiser?
Breaking bread with the
staff.
Greene, who takes office in
January, said he has met with
senior managers at the prop-
erty appraiser's office and
also with the entire 61-mem-
ber staff.
Property Appraiser
Melanie Hensley, whom
Greene defeated in a bitterly
fought Republican primary,
invited Greene to a manager's
meeting.
"I went and had breakfast
with them all. It went so well
that evening that I met with
the entire staff," Greene said.
"They invited me back for a
potluck The food was won--
derful."
Greene said he still is work-
ing on details for the office
and declined to discuss those
in an interview.
But he said his first order of


business was easing concerns
of staff members about the
new boss.
"Basically I told them they
probably don't know enough
about me and I don't know
enough about them and we'll
have time to get to know each
other," he said. "It's my inten-
tion to earn their respect"
Greene said he receiving re-
sumes from professionals and
appraisers but hasn't made
any hiring decisions.

Dessie is a Florida
Women's Hall of Fame in-
ductee.
She was a pioneer in
Florida's quieter days, a pas-
sionate fishing and hunting
guide and a quick-witted spit-
fire who made her way into
written works.
Like Booth, Dessie's step-
daughter, Amy Gilbert wants
the land to became a place to
honor Dessie.
"I would really like to see
the place preserved as some-
thing for people to come and
learn about Dessie, Marge,
Florida history," Gilbert said.
They want children to
come to learn to fish and
hunt and groups to see the
relics of a different life.
There's the 1954 green
Jeep Dessie used to traverse
through forests and swamps.
Cabinets are filled with old
rifles. A wooden chest over-
flows with antique fishing
lures, fly line and shotgun
shells.
The floor is crafted with
wooden pegs that hold to-
gether the tongue-and-groove
planks.
The walls are fashioned
from old pecky cypress.
On the porch is a marble
table from an old newspaper
press.
A massive stone fireplace
anchors the inside and outside
of the house. Decades ago, as
the foundation of the house
shifted, the fireplace began to
separate from the house.
Not wanting to lose the
fireplace, Dessie wedged old
railroad tracks between the
ground outside and the fire-
place. To make the supports
blend in, she covered them
with stones.
When Dessie got sick, and
her bed was moved into the
living room, she would stare

Dessie Smith Prescott bought this property in the 1970s. The property was the childhood home of state Sen. Charlie Dean in the '40s and '50s.


at the rock fireplace and tell
Booth she could see faces in
the stones.
Booth has created a
makeshift, mobile museum
out of photos, newspaper clip-
pings, old-fashioned tools, and
items of Dessie's, including
her Army uniform and fishing
hat The items fill the top of all
the tables in the sunroom.
She gives presentations to
groups that ask and has even
hosted lunches at the prop-
erty for groups wanting a


unique meeting place with
historical significance.
Booth works as a substitute
teacher and part-time at a
church office. With various
medical issues, she tries the
best she can to keep up the
place, but at times the task is
overwhelming.
For now, the three small
homes on the property are
being rented by good tenants.
That helps, Booth said.
A few months ago an entre-
preneur from' Tampa Bay


came with ideas to make the
property into a bed and
breakfast or fishing lodge.
Booth liked what the man had
to say, but so far, it's just talk.
A few days ago, some people
from the Marjorie Kinnan
Rawlings Society came to
Dessie's place with ideas about
putting a plaque on the prop-
erty in recognition of the inter-
twined lives of the women.
Dessie is featured in Rawlings'
novel "Cross Creek"
Dessie is buried at the Na-


tional Cemetery in Bushnell,
where the plaque isn't allowed.
If that happens, Booth fig-
ures another plaque should
come to the property.
In 2002, the Inglis Island
picnic area at the Marjorie
Harris Carr Cross Florida
Greenway was dedicated in
Dessie's memory. Because of
vandalism at the park, the
plaque is being kept in a
garage somewhere.
Nothinghas come through yet
Booth places hope in or-


ganizations like Forever
Florida to come to the aid.
From what she's heard, the
land isn't large enough to be-
come a state park, Booth said.
Nothing is definite, other
' than Booth's love for the land
that Dessie cherished..
Booth calls it a piece of old
Florida that should be treas-
ured for the next generation
to learn from the land, like
Dessie.
"To see it go to waste,"
Booth said, "is such a tragedy"

DESSIE
Continued from Page A2

In tape recordings of
Dessie from 1993, she details
their troubles.
It all started when Rawl-
ings began drinking heavily
and succumbed to bouts of
deep depression.
Dessie was in the middle of
a divorcing a doctor and
wanted Rawlings to testify in
the trial.
Rawlings refused and
Dessie didn't forget.
Years later, neighbor
Zelma Cason filed a libel law-
suit against Rawlings that
sparked national interest for
her book "Cross Creek."
Cason was upset with how
Rawlings depicted her in the
book and claimed an inva-
sion of privacy
"Zelma is an ageless spin-
ster resembling an angry and
efficient canary... She com-
bines the more violent char-
acteristics of both and those
who ask for or accept her
ministrations think nothing
at being cursed loudly at the
very instant of being tenderly
fed, clothed, nursed, or
guided through their trou-
bles," Rawlings wrote in the
book.
Dessie said the description
was accurate.
"I've always said anything
you could say about Zelma
would be a compliment,"
Dessie said in the 1993
recordings.
Despite the fact that Dessie
said she never liked Zelma,
she refused to testify in the
trial.
Her reason?
The request to speak on
Rawlings' behalf came in a
letter written from a lawyer.
Still bitter that Rawlings
wouldn't testify in her di-
vorce trail, Dessie refused
unless Rawlings would ask
herself. It was a matter of
pride.
Eventually, Rawlings made
a personal plea to Dessie.
Rawlings won the case, but
later lost in appellate court
and was forced to pay Cason
$1.
As for their friendship, it
was mended, but never the
same, Dessie said.

She could do anything a
man could do, as far as I was
concerned. She lived in
Florida when Florida was
still a pioneering type of
place.
-Amy Gilbert,
Dessie's stepdaughter,
circa 2008

Amy Gilbert was 10 years
old and living with her father,
Howard Prescott, in Cleve-


DAVE SIGLER/Chronicle
Amy Gilbert is the stepdaughter of Dessie Smith Prescott. Gilbert lives in Crystal River and has many memories about her time
shared with Dessie.
When Dessie had a hankering for hearts of palm salad, she convinced
Gilbert's husband to help her with the homemade meal. It took her
son-in-law more than two hours to chop down the tree to get to
the part that supplied the succulent meal.


land when he married
Dessie.
This was Dessie's sixth
marriage and the one man
she wouldn't divorce. In-
stead, he made her a widow
in 1986.
The two first met when
Gilbert's mother was alive
and the couple would vaca-
tion at Dessie's hunting lodge
in Inglis.
Gilbert, who grew up in the
city, called her stepmother a
hard, tough woman with high
expectations.
When Dessie was cooking,
cleaning, fixing or washing,
she expected Gilbert to do
the same. As a teenager,
Gilbert resented her.
"When I got older, I appre-
ciated what she was trying to
do," Gilbert said. "She was
trying to keep me on the
straight and narrow."
Now, Gilbert looks back
fondly on a childhood filled
with camping trips and hikes
in the woods.
Dessie taught her step-
daughter to not waste by cre-
atively using leftovers. Soups
and stews were her specialty
and she could make strange
combinations taste good.


Gilbert 'remembers the
time Dessie loaded up an old
station wagon and drove
Gilbert and friends to Canada
to see a stampede rodeo.
The trip was cramped -
Dessie decided to bring an
elderly woman along.
But the
camping, ON TH
fishing, the
adventurous N Visit www.c
trips-those online.com
were what footage of 1
Gilbert rel- times of De
ished. Prescott.
"She had a
good heart." Gilbert said.
"She really did."
In the 1970s, Dessie bought
a piece of land on Lake
Rousseau off Citrus Avenue
with a house already decades
old. Like the Inglis lodge,
Dessie chose the land be-
cause it was close to fresh
and saltwater access "and


h
t
th
eS


good hunting country,"
Dessie said in the 1993
recordings.
Later in life, Gilbert and
her husband lived in another
small cottage on the property
and eventually bought prop-
erty and a house across the
street where
E NET they grew
and sold fruit
ironicle and vegeta-
to see bles and
he life and raised cattle.
ssie Smith W h i 1 e
Gilbert loves
Dessie, living
with her wasn't easy. Things
had to be done Dessie's way.
When Dessie had a han-
kering for hearts of palm
salad, she convinced
Gilbert's husband to help her
with the homemade meal. It
took her son-in-law more
than two hours to chop down
the tree to get to the part that


supplied the succulent meal.
She disapproved of cutting
grass near the fence line with
a weed eater it took gas,
and muscle was free.
She was opinionated, over-
bearing.
Dessie was tough on the
people she hired, and was
quick to fire someone, or
dock pay for any minute
spent slacking.


Dessie needed someone to
help manage the property to
her high standards and strict
work ethics.

She taught me about life
and what to expect. You'll get
out of life what you put into
life. That's the way she lived.
Amy Gilbert,
Dessie's stepdaughter

When Candace Booth first
met her employer she
thought "Wow! What a
woman."
Dessie ran an ad to find a
caretaker to help her manage
the large piece of land on the
lake, Booth said in a recent
interview.
On Dec. 12, 1983, Candace
Booth applied for the job.
With her husband and young
children, Booth met with
Dessie.
A classic Southern Cracker
cook, the hostess fed Booth
and her family a meal of
pinto beans, ham and corn-
bread cooked in an iron skil-
let.
Booth's husband was from
West Virginia, and like
Dessie loved hunting and
fishing. The two were fast
friends.
They talked about what
needed to be done. The gut-
ters on the roof needed to be
cleaned, the house painted,
fence line mended and the
yard needed to be kept
The couple said they could
do the job and Dessie ac-
cepted.
"I felt like a real sissy
around her because she was
so macho," said Booth, who
was raised at a Catholic
school for girls in Kentucky.
The Booths moved into one
of four houses on the prop-
erty.
"I wish I had a dollar for
every cow I chased and
every fence I mended,"
Booth said.

Special to the Chronicle
_ This photo, taken by a Citrus County code inspector, shows an ostrich in the yard of a Homosassa woman. The county says the
ostrich must find a new home.

Continued from Page Al


The county also pho-
tographed a peacock at the
property. Jacobs said that
isn't fair
"I cannot believe that
code enforcement also
wants to keep me responsi-


ble for a peacock that was
sitting on my fence," she
wrote in a Nov. 18 e-mail.
"There are many free roam-
ing peacocks that run the
neighborhood freely. They
are to be found all over the
place coming from the farms
behind us. I will surely not
be responsible for some-
thing that does not belong to
me."

DESSIE
Continued from Page A5

There were domestic ani-
mals to care for: goats, rab-
bits, chickens, dogs, cows -
and then the wild ones that
needed to be managed: alli-
gators, raccoons, snakes,
birds and armadillos.
The work was hard and
Dessie was demanding. But
she didn't expect anything
she wouldn't do herself.
Booth developed a deep
respect for Dessie.
She loved the stories
Dessie told of old times, wild
times.
Dessie told her about sa-
fari hunting trips to Africa,
killing bears in Alaska, and
outrunning game wardens in
the woods of Florida.
Booth and Dessie planned
and hosted parties and went
on hunting trips across the
country.
"I've gone places and done
things with her that I would
never have done," Booth
said.
Booth also learned to cook
like a Cracker-style woman.
Dessie cooked with sticks
of butter and bacon grease in
iron skillets and Dutch ovens.
Bear, venison, moose, rab--
bits and squirrel she knew
how to season each one of
them.
Venison should be cooked
slowly, and with bacon.
Water from boiled shrimp
makes the best stock for the
start of great fish chowder.
She loved dipping sliced
tomatoes in vinegar as a
snack
When Dessie finished with
breakfast, she began plan-
ning lunch.
She did it all on an over-
sized, well-worn butcher's
block in the center of her
kitchen. The block still car-
ries the stains of the thou-
sands of meals prepared on
it

2:30 p.m. at the meeting.
Brian C. Beaty, district gov-
ernment liaison, FDOT, will
present the department's Dis-
trict 7 draft five-year tentative
work program.
In an e-mail Monday to
Commission Chairman John
Thrumston, Lee
current A. Royal, commu-
the toll nity liaison ad-
ministrator with
through FDOT, said the
state is experi-
County encing an overall
impact of about
able to $2.1billion in rev-
iline at enue reductions.
"This has trans-
incoast lated to about a
$161 million im-
e.com. pact to the dis-
trict program so
far," Royal said. "We have not
received the impact of the
Nov. 21 Revenue Estimating
Conference or Strategic In-
termodal System reductions.
Once received, we will adjust
the program accordingly."


I've enjoyed my life. I still
do. I'm going to try and con-
tinue to do what I want to do
and have fun as long as I'm
able, as long as it's no skin off
some other fella's fanny.
Dessie Smith Prescott,
1996 in "Seasons of
Real Florida"
by JeffKlinkenberg

Dessie died in 2002, at the
age of 95.
She was laying in the arms
of her friend, Candace Booth,
to whom she left her beloved
home and property.

This is a woman who has
gone places in a time and an
era where other women didn't
dare go. It was out of survival
and by following her instincts
that were telling her she
could do those things. She
made women realize, 'Hey,
this woman did things like
this when they weren't ac-
ceptable. We need to learn
from her If you stop learning
from somebody who's been
around as long as Dessie has,
then you're just close-minded.
August2001, then-state
Rep. Nancy Argenziano

Your Birthday: Conditions that ap-
peal to your more serious side
could take precedence in your life in
the year ahead. Fortunately, you will
have full control over which ones
you want to participate in.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) --- If
you are serious about pursuing vari-
ous enterprises, your possibilities
for generating more profit than
usual look good.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Do
as little delegating of assignments
as possible. Self-reliance has its
benefits.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Any-
thing swept under the rug will have
to be tended to sometime in the fu-
ture, which might come at an inop-
portune moment.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) -
There are benefits to mingling with
new and different people so don't
turn down any invitations.
Aries (March 21-April 19)-Al-
though your first inclination may be
to sidestep any development that
looks like a lot of work, you'll actu-
ally love the challenge.


Taurus (April 20-May 20) It's
OK to be all business, but don't fail
to spend quality time with your fam-
ily or friends.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) Be
serious about all undertakings, and
you might discover some hidden tal-
ents about your mind or personality.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) -
You're likely to express yourself so-
cially with a lot more interaction
than normal.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Be care-
ful that you're not such an eager
beaver that you forget to relax and
spend some time with loved ones.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You'll
be happier getting involved in diver-
sions of substance that are still fun.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) There
is no need for you to be all serious-
ness when dealing with others. Rely
on your sense of humor.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Some
suggestions offered by companions
might be selfishly motivated. How-
ever, if it doesn't bother you to help
satisfy their needs, go along with
them.

tral Moravian Church hosts a
Christmas show featuring
hymns, carols and the story of
early Moravians and their in-
teractions with the American
Indians. The show runs Dec. 4
to 6, 11 to 13 and 20.
Horse carriage rides, walk-

North Pole, Alaska: No,
this isn't the Earth's geo-
graphic North Pole, amid the
Arctic Ocean. This North
Pole, population 2,200, is 12
miles from Fairbanks; it was
officially named in 1953.
One of the big draws here,
for anyone who cares to expe-
rience winter in Alaska this
holiday season, is North Pole
Christmas in Ice, an ice festi-
val and sculpting competition.
Last year was the first time the
event took place. It featured a
fierce contest between ice
artists from Alaska and China,
carving a Christmas-themed
sculpture from a block of ice.
This year's event kicks off
on Thanksgiving Day with the
illumination of a frozen
turkey sculpture 8 feet tall
and 18,500 pounds. There will
also be an ice park with ice
slides for kids opening Dec. 4
at the start of the two-day ice-
carving competition. The
park will stay open every day
through the end of December.
Webcam competition cover-
age, schedule and hours at
www.christmasinice.org.
On Dec. 6, a winter festival
takes place at North Pole
Plaza Mall followed by a tree-
lighting ceremony and fire-
works. Details at
www.northpolealaska.com/.
North Pole's Santa Claus
House includes a gift shop,
Santa and real reindeer.
"Every year we receive thou-
sands of letters to Santa from
kids all over the world," said
manager Paul Brown. Some
letters get posted on a wall


Associated Press


The Santa Claus House is in North Pole, Alaska.


The Santa Claus Museum in

tifacts and photographs of the

well as the history of its world-

Thegood

a Cabinet.
Obama and I have a lot
in common.
He is trying to organize a
Cabinet.
I am trying to organize a
cabinet of my own in the
den of my house.
The president-elect seems
to be having an easier time
than I am. : : ;
He is pulling together some
of the brightest men and
women in our country to as-
sist him in guiding our great
nation back to prosperity and
international glory.
I'm just tryingto clean up the
mess I've made in my office.
My task may not seem as
important as President-elect
Obama's, but it seemed pretty
darned important during
hurricane season when I
couldn't find the operational
manual for my generator
President Bushniessed up
during Hurrnicane Katrina
and his approval ratings
never recovered. I'm not
going to let my household ap-
proval ratings drop because I
can't start the generator for
the lack of an operational
manual, thus blocking the ac-
tual viewing of House
Hunters on HGTV

One stuffed
turkey aind
one big bird
he supermarket had
just run out of small
turkeys, and so I
boughtthesmallest of the big
ones. It weighed in at 23
pounds, 7 ounces.
We knew Mom from Sara-
sota and Aunt Kay from
Naples would be joining in
the feast and there was an
outside chance one or two
others would stop by, so at 79
cents a pound, this turkey-
maniac rationalized the big
bird.
With five days to go to,
Thanksgiving, there was
plenty of time to thaw the
beast. In years past, that has
been an issue.
Knowing that this bird
would take a while to roast,
and wanting to get a jump on
the side dishes I was to pre-
Spare, we opted not to sleep in
on Thanksgiving morning so
we could get to work
I peeled several potatoes,
cut them and set them aside
for boiling and mashing at a
later time.
I chopped celery and siz-
zled some pork sausage to go
with the stuffing.
I reached into both ends of
the big bird to remove the neck
and giblets, which were
promptly tossed out and fol-
lowed by a good hand-washing.
I rinsed the bird with water
then glanced at the direc-
tions that read, "Do not rinse
with water to avoid cross-
contamination."

'PUBLIC' RECORDS


No names needed


when it comes to


public info requests


A recent public records
audit of county-govern-
ment entities throughout
Florida resulted in finding 43
percent of 163 agencies in viola-
tion of the law when asked for e-
mails or correspondences
related to budgets.
While one of three offices in
Citrus County failed in following
protocol laid down by the law,
overall we faired well and the
one infraction was
minor. THE1 I
Sheriff, school
district and county Public
government offices
were visited OUR 01
throughout the T_
state in the audit, They
which was spear- to the
headed by the
Florida Society of Newspaper
Editors. The auditors were in-
tentionally not local reporters
known to public officials and
their staff members.
The good news is that most
agencies throughout the state
were willing to cooperate and
most failing grades didn't stem
from calculated disregard for
public, records, laws. The bad
new is that many front-line pub-
lic employees are unfamiliar
with our open-records laws that
give anonymous citizens equal
access to information as re-
porters and public officials.
In Citrus County, a request to
the county commission secre-
tary for e-mails concerning the
county budget led to a failing
grade. The secretary directed
the auditor to the clerk of courts
office, where the auditor was
asked for his name and phone


S
r

IP


number, then was provided the
telephone number for the
deputy county administrator.
It seems there was some con-
fusion about who the proper
gatekeeper of the information
was, but the key mistake was
asking the name and number of
the auditor.
On the surface, that seems a
logical request. However, open
records laws are intended to en-
sure that govern-
iSUE: ment is
accountable to the
records. people it serves
and as seen in
DINION: other Florida coun-
ties in the audit -
elong asking for the iden-
public. tify of the person
seeking informa-
tion can be perceived as intimi-
dation and be an indication that
some may be privileged to ac-
cess where others are not. That
can't happen.
We don't believe the local
slipup represents any trend in
Citrus County and, in fact, was
intended to be helpful. It does,
however, show there's an ongo-
ing need to educate those in gov-
ernment about the do's and
don't-do's when handling public
records requests.
In an era when e-mails are
commonplace, it's vital that the
public has unfettered access to
such communications, as well
traditional records. "Who" is re-
questing the information does
not matter, and front-line gov-
ernment employees as well as
elected officials need to make
awareness of public records
laws top-of-mind.

-= Hot Corner: AUTO BAILOUT


Borrow their money
Before the citizens give money for
a (bailout) for the automakers, they
should go to the United Auto Work-
ers' pension fund and see if they
will borrow money from the pension
fund. If the pension fund won't lend
their own company money to make
them secure and safe, the citizens
should not be required to do so, Let
the autoworkers invest in their own
industry. Go to the pension fund.
There's tons-of money.
What a mess
Well, I read the Chronicle today
and I see that the Big Three have to
go back to Detroit and return when
they have a plan on how they are
going to restructure. How come the
government gave the banks money
and didn't even ask them if they
had a plan on restructuring? It was
the banks that put us into this mess
by loaning out money to people to
buy houses, who had absolutely no
good credit or no collateral. This
country is in such a mess. I hope
things work out for the best.
Limit foreign models
You know, there's a very simple
solution to the problem of the
American automakers: Calculate the
number of cars all foreign suppliers
are about to sell in a given year and
limit that to half that number.


Good citizens
First there's the gas-guzzlers. Yes,
they did produce some powerful ve-
hicles, but GM has most of the top
10 mileage cars in this year's mod-
els. Also, they provide health care
for many of your fellow Americans.
And they want a loan, not a give-
away. As for the reason they are
short on cash, it's because the new
state-of-the-art production equip-
ment for the best cars on the road.
One last note: GM's high taxes have
built Germany, Korea, Japan's coun-
tries. Maybe if they were not such
good citizens of the world, they
would not have this problem. So
check your facts, because your
opinion kills our precious industry.
We also need manufacturers in case
of war to protect ourselves. Think.
Passing the buck
A Sound Off caller stated that
since General Motors, Ford and
Chrysler "contribute $70 billion in
taxes per year to the United States,"
they should be assisted. Let's be
clear. Businesses do not pay taxes;
they collect taxes. When government
places a tax on a business, the tax is
always passed on to the consumer.
Currently, approximately 23 percent
of the price of any new product is
taxes of one kind or another. For ex-
ample, without embedded taxes, your
$30,000 car would cost $6,900 less.


_ LETTERS to the Editor


Spread the blame
I am disturbed because this
beautiful country of ours, that I
served as a quartermaster 3rd class
in the U.S. Navy and then as 2nd
lieutenant in the Air Force has
been bartered, banged and bro-
kered by an assorted group of per-
petrators including CEOs, brokers
and brokerages, and just about any-
one else you want to name, includ-
ing ourselves. But I think the most
egregious of all are our elected offi-
cials whom we elected to protect
us, but instead of that they excused
themselves from contributing to So-
cial Security as the rest of us have
done and voted themselves a retire-
ment and medical plan that ex-
ceeds anything you or I have.
But now comes the straw that
broke the camel's back Because of
their lack of care, the United
States is now positioned, not only in
the arena of recession, but on the
cusp of depression.
Isn't it interesting that some of
these Congress people who are now
jumping all over the perps are the
same ones who not only allowed
but actually encouraged all of this
to happen. As a result of the above,
it has become necessary to recon-
cile myself with the fact that we
have been snookered by some of
our elected, who made it possible
for this to happen, and by our own
ignorance and greed without taking
the time to check the facts. So now
what Washington admitted to is that
we are in and have been in a reces-
sion. No surprise really, because
when Washington does tell us
something it most likely is in the
category of a Definite Maybe.
For instance: Secretary of the
Treasury Paulson, Phi Beta Kappa,
Princeton, has said, and I quote, "I
believe the banking system has
been stabilized." And my response
is that if you believe that, then I
have a lovely bridge in Brooklyn,

Catholic for Obama
A letter writer (Nov. 16) ex-
pressed her distress that more
than 50 percent of church-attend-
ing Catholics voted for pro-choice
Barack Obama. She wrote that
those Catholics have "no idea what
their own church teaches" regard-
ing abortion, and she admonished


them "to approach the confes-
sional before they next attempt to
approach the communion line."
In his book "Can A Catholic Sup-
port Him?: Asking the Big Question
About Barack Obama," pro-life
Catholic scholar and constitutional
law professor Douglas W Kmiec
wrote: "Since voters seldom have
the opportunity to vote specifically
on any given policy (as, say, in a ref-
erendum), but instead usually cast
their vote for a representative who
will exercise his or her judgment in
place of the citizen over a wide
range of issues, seldom should a
voter be thought of as cooperating
with evil unless the candidate had
been selected by the voter to pro-
mote that evil. In the words of then-
Cardinal Ratzinger (now Pope
Benedict XVI): A Catholic would be
guilty of formal cooperation in evil...
if he were to deliberately vote for a
candidate precisely because of the
candidate's permissive stand on
abortion and/or euthanasia. When a
Catholic does not share a candi-
date's stand in favor of abortion
and/or euthanasia, but votes for that
candidate for other reasons, it is
considered remote material cooper-
ation, which can be permitted in the
presence of proportionate reasons."'
I am a Catholic who voted for
Barack Obama not because of his
pro-choice position on abortion but
because of his pro-life positions on
the issues of supportive services
for pregnant women, health care,
the Iraq war and tax policy
It should be pointed out that John
McCain is pro-choice, in the sense
that should Roe v Wade be over-
turned by the Supreme Court, he
would give individual states the
choice of whether to ban abortion.
He is not calling for a constitutional
amendment that would ban abor-
tion throughout the United States.

Crrus COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


And the rib God had taken from man, made he a woman


'And the Lord God said, it
is not good that the man
should be alone; I will make
him an help meet for him.
And the Lord God caused a
deep sleep to fall upon Adam
and he slept; and he took one
of his ribs, and closed the
flesh instead thereof; And the
rib which the Lord God had
taken from man, made he a
woman, and brought her unto
the man."

I remain in awe of her abil-

my skin has become tough

says the subject matter isn't

Place to go
This is in answer to the
military retired veterans in
wheelchairs: It's not in Inver-
ness; it's over in Homosassa
at 5679 S. Suncoast Blvd.
That's (U.S.) 19 at the "My
Jo's" it's a game room.
Veterans are more than wel-
come, and they have no
smoking inside at all, your
snacks are free, and no alco-
hol is allowed. So enjoy your-
selves and come visit them. I
go there very often. Have a
good day.
Look into wind
Progress Energy wants to
build this nuclear plant. Why
don't they spend a little
money on looking into wind
energy, being that they own
so much property right on
the gulf coast? There's usu-
ally a wind blowing in from
the Gulf all the time; that
would help out with energy.
But we want to spend $17
billion on a nuclear plant? I
don't know. What are the
views and opinions of this
country? We the people don't
have a say anymore.
Too early
I agree with the person
who called in about the
Christmas lights being on at
the wildlife park before
Thanksgiving. It's too early
for it. But everything started
earlier this year. The street-
lights went up earlier and
even the Salvation Army
started a week earlier in-
stead of the day after
Thanksgiving. Even Andy'
Rooney talked about this with
disgust on "60 Minutes."
Camper life
After having two homes -
selling a home and having to
give up the other and after
reading the story about
Walden Woods, I really de-
cided, you know what? I'm
going to live in a camper and
maybe rent a lot in a camp-
ground. At least that way if
you lose your job or you can't
make it, you can at least
have a bed and a roof over
your head. Because, basi-


cally, do you really ever own
your home? You have to pay
taxes on that home every
year. I don't believe homes
should be taxed. I don't think
you should have to sit here
and struggle every year to
have to pay a tax on a home
where you should have the
right to live without the state
.or- thegoV'er nment telling you
that you have to pay to live
there. So, basically, you're al-
ways paying rent on your
home.
Where'd she park?
I'm calling on Monday's ar-
ticle in Sound Off,
"Thanks again,"
about the father and 0 %
the parking lot with -
his daughter and all
her activities in
school. That should
make'a difference if
a car got hit? It
makes you wonder.
She was in a blind CAL,
spot in the park- 5
ing...I mean this 0563
happens all the time
... I would first look at where
she parked the car ...
What's the harm?


This is to the persons that
chose to be buried in Beverly
Hills rather than Inverness: If
it brings a small amount of
peace to the grieving to visit
the gravesite and place a re-
membrance that will give
them comfort, what harm is
that? Perhaps messy to you,
but special to the ones left
behind.
Uplifting
I would like to thank the
elderly gentleman who was a
bell-ringer playing the trom-
bone at Wal-Mart while col-
lecting (donations) with his
beautiful granddaughter, it
appeared to be. It was very
uplifting and enjoyable in a
world not so enjoyable today.
But anyway, it was a great
idea and thank you so much.
Clarification
This is in response to the
worker who's worried about
their 401(k) plan if the com-
pany goes bankrupt. There is


an error here that Ms. Weiser
has. I think it's important to
note that she states that it's
important to roll over into
your new employer's retire-
ment plan or an IRA unless
you're 59 1/2 or older, be-
cause if you don't, your in-
come will be taxed and you'll
be subject to a 10 percent
penalty. What actually hap-
pens, no matter what your
age, if you take your money
out of your 401(k) and do
not roll it over to a new em-
ployer or do not roll it over
into an IRA, you will be taxed.
The only thing that the 59-
1/2 means is that if
you're older than
JND that, you won't pay a
l 10 percent penalty.
He's great
I'm an American
SY and I want to say
something to the
president and some-
thing to Washington
i579 l.. Instead of send-
)579 iuing $10 billion a
month to Iraq, stop
the war so you can help the
poor people over here. It's so
simple to do ... They never
thought of the middle-class
people, never. And I don't
care whether he's a Democ-
rat, Republican, everything. I
like Barack Obama I think
he's great. But some of you
people ought to get wise to
yourselves, and the heck
what color he is and what
man he is. If he can help the
country, he's great. He's not
good; he's great.
We need room
The new EOC building: Do
not condemn a place unless
you've been there and under-
stand what it's all about. We
did have people working an-
swering 911 phone service
with five and six in a place
big enough for two. We need
room. You would be the first
to holler, probably, that no-
body was answering your call
if we didn't have a place with
everything there. There's
more out there than just an
empty building. Know what
you're talking about before
you condemn it.


Rotten in Denmark?
A $25,000 fine for The
Freezer? I guess if the bu-
reaucrats run them out of
business, somebody will be
ready to buy that valuable
property. Why didn't the bu-
reaucrats wait and get direc-
tion from our.newly elected
representatives? Is something
rotten in DenmarO.-?
Thanks!
To the golfer that turned in
my husband's sky caddy:
Thank you so very much.
We're so pleased to have it
back. You're a good golfer
and I wish'you holes-in-one.
Thank you.
Stolen charger
I'm calling to thank the (thief)
that stole my battery charger. I
hope you need it worse than I
do, and you really made my
Thanksgiving a happy one.
Love you, Steve
To the caller that obviously
has an issue with Steve
Spurrier: I think it was 1950
long before Steve I sat in
the stands at Florida Field and
celebrated when we beat the
Citadel 6-0. Florida fans suf-
fered with coaches with nick-
names such as Old Punt and
Pray long before Steve. My
wife and I were so impressed
with Steve as quarterback at
Starkville when, as a young-
ster, he beat the Bulldogs, we
wrote him a thank-you note.
He autographed the note and
sent it back. No, Steve no
longer coaches in the place he
nicknamed The Swamp. No,
being the first Heismann win-
ner at Florida and being the
son of a preacher man, then
coaching a son of a preacher
man to a national champi-
onship, doesn't make him a
hero. Yes, he's embarrassed a
few other teams. Only long-
suffering Gator fans know
what Steve did for the Univer-
sity of Florida football ... I ap-
preciate the fact that the
gentleman mentioned Coach
Bowden. He's a gentleman in
every sense of the word and
he also has the love of all the
Gator fans that I know.

Nuclear-generated power is not the way to go


NORMAN HOPKINS
Special to the Chronicle
Certainly, taxpayers must
attend the meeting with the
Nuclear Regulatory Commis-
sion at the National Guard
Armory in Crystal River on
Thursday, Dec. 4, and ask
tough questions of that com-
mission about the Progress
Energy nuclear plants pro-
posed for Levy County. Just as
the lady featured in the ban-
ner position of Monday's Cit-
rus County Chronicle front
page said we should.
Remember that Sunday's
Chronicle front page sported
a piece by the president and
CEO of Progress Energy-
Florida on the same subject?
Be alert that that lady quoted
in Monday's edition is
spokesperson for the coali-
tion of which Progress En-


ergy is a member. Is this a
snow job? We must be aware
of the world around us, too.
-In 2002, the United Nations
declared, "Water is a limited
natural resource and a pub-
lic good, fundamental for life
and health," and, The key
now is to put people first, and
the environment second, but
to remember that when you
exhaust resources, you de-
stroy people."
E.F Schumacher, in "Small
Is Beautiful" (1973), cites fos-
sil fuel together with "living
nature" as natural capital -
the latter including plankton
in the oceans, the green sur-
face of the Earth, clean air
and water.
He asserts that squander-
ing fossil fuel threatens civi-
lization, but squandering the
capital of living nature
around us threatens life it-


self.
Bishop Lesslie Newbigin,
writing a dozen years later,
asserts in "Foolishness to the
Greeks," "Growth ... for the
sake of growth.(is) the exact
phenomenon which, when it
occurs in the human body, is
called cancer."
Deforestation (whether of
uplands or wetlands) is
likened to cancer of the
"lungs of the planet," and
land degradation likened to
melanoma of the very fabric
of our land. Our modem soci-
ety consumes the very basis
upon which it has been
erected, living on irreplace-
able capital, which it happily
(foolishly) treats as income.
Ask the NRC how much of
our earthly lungs are being
committed as cancer.
Our local environment is
fragile, having been severely


strained by years of drought
and population growth. Land
use maps over a period of
time clearly show a coinci-
dent depletion of our natural
resources. Why now deplete
it further? Ask the NRC.
Our capital markets avoid
nuke plants as too risky and
not economic. Power compa-
nies successfully lobbied
Florida's legislature to slide
into law FS 366.93, allowing
them to exact capital contri-
butions from customers (a
tax?) to pay up front for con-
struction of nuclear genera-
tion and distribution
facilities. Their sharehold-
ers, bond holders and execu-
tives benefit at taxpaying
customers' expense.
This iniquity is not the
American way. Ask the NRC.
In Sunday's Chronicle Jeff
Lyash, Progress Energy-


Florida's president and CEO,
tells us, "While offering
cheaper power in the long
run, a nuclear plant ... In the
long term, this means a re-
duction on the customer's
price," Not true, unless one
ignores billions of dollars in
taxpayer subsidies, costs to
tear down and make safe on
decommissioning worn out
plants, safely disposing of
waste toxic fuel (almost a bil-
lion dollars per reactor, as-
suming no further increases),
and accident insurance costs.
Catastrophic accident losses
are capped at $10.2, billion
per operator. Such a loss lia-
bility has been estimated at
as much as the recent $700
billion Treasury bailout. So,
everything above the $10.2
billion falls upon the taxpay-
ers (again).
Notwithstanding these


omissions comparing as close
as possible, nuclear-gener-
ated electricity costs about 14
cents per kilowatt hour com-
pared to 9 cents per kilowatt
hour (and lower) for clean,
renewably sourced power.
Ask the NRC to say why the
economic balance has not al-
ready moved in favor of wind,
solar and geothermal elec-
tricity generation.
A mix involving existing
nuclear plants for a transi-
tion period may be a reason-
able policy, but not at added
taxpayers' expense, nor at
the expense of competing al-
ternative sources.

tal River resident and direc-

Turn Fox off
I think Dr. Dixon needs to stop watching
Fox News because he just repeats their
lines. And what a laugh he says Ben
Bernanke is the world's expert on the
Great Depression and he's struggling to
find a good solution and he blames the
Democrats, for the mess that we're in.
What about the fact that the Republicans
have had total control for six years while
all the banks and all the institutions had
no monitoring of what they were doing
and they were creating something known
as credit default swaps and short sales
and systematically destroying the stock
market. You know, the millionaires became
billionaires. Dr. Dixon, you know, watch
CNBC once in a while and learn about
what really caused this mess, instead of
just your usual line, "It's the Democrats'
fault." Please.


Short memories
I was reading in the Chronicle how these
county commissioners didn't have a clue
about a past lawsuit with the water depart-
ment and water commissioners, the
commissioners back in 1991. It's
amazing that these county commis-
sioners don't know much of any-
thing here. I can sit down with an
old friend of. mine in Jersey who's
an assemblyman for the past 10
years, and he can tell you stuff all
the way back to the '50s and '40s.
Wagging the dog CA i
This is regarding the lawsuit 563"
against Citrus County. Hopefully, the
newly elected commissioners will take
charge and not rely on county employees to
dole out the information as they see fit. We
don't want the tail to continue wagging the dog.

Getting a grip
Congratulations ... to the new commis-
sioners for going out to the Inverness Wal-
Mart and helping pass out the food to the
thousands of souls who stood out
JND there in the cold trying to get a
I turkey to eat for Thanksgiving.
F Maybe you can get a grip on just
how bad Citrus County is now.
He said, she said
I'm reading the paper Sunday,
Nov. 23, and, you know, people com-
p0 plaining about the parking lot at
Chicken King and the person who
579Q wrote in that they're making.an hon-
J5 9t vest living- I'm sure they are and
they said, "Why don't you bother
other companies like The Freezer?" Why don't
you stop? It's just like little kids he said,
she said. You know, stop worrying about what


other people's doing, OK? Why don't we
worry about the real problems economy,
people killing each other, people robbing ...
This is petty, this is really petty. Get on with
life. Let's go with the real problems.
Pick on someone else
I'm calling in response to the Sound Off
where the guy's talking about The Freezer
over there in Homosassa, and he's blaming
their being open still on the Democrats.
Well, I'm a registered Libertarian and I
have to say I'm so happy you found some-
one else to pick on besides us Libertarians.
Somebody's got to be to blame, right?
Thanks, ladies
There are many things in Citrus County that
I appreciate. I certainly appreciate Nancy
Kennedy and Mary Alice Tillman. They're al-
ways such upbeat people, have a good dispo-
sition and I really appreciate them. Thank you.

My organizational problem
stems from a learned core
competency in the newspa-
per business where we are
taught that when you have
some important piece of
paper that you should not
throw out, you simply place it
in a pile. When the pile gets
so big with other accumu-
-lated important papers that it
is at risk of falling over, you
simply start another pile.
After a while, you have a
lot of piles.
My specific problem was
that the generator's opera-
tional manual was in one of


SHADES
Continued from Page C1

I threw a few stalks of cel-
ery, chunks of onion and
some chopped garlic inside
the turkey. There was no rea-
son to do that we weren't
stuffing the bird this year -
but it just seemed like a good
idea.
Meanwhile co-host (techni-
cally "hostess") Neale was
doing last-minute sprucing
up around the house. Her
side dishes green bean
casserole, Wal-
dorf salad and I was
pumpkin pie --
were prepared a surpriseI
day or two that a
ahead of time.
Neale had one pound
request and that
was to keep cats can fee

Sheeba on the five adu

busy and they 23 pC

Unfortunately, 7 Ounce
the cats hadn't in the
bought into that
concept and dinner prepara-
tions and housecleaning
were mixed in with a lot of
kitty chasing.
Regardless, everything
seemed to come together re-
ally well, and shortly after
noon, the turkey went in the
oven and it was time for some
lunch.
With little to no thought put
into lunch, I grabbed a cou-
ple of frozen patties out of the
freezer and a couple of
burger buns out of the fridge.
About the time the patties
were sizzled and ready for
consumption, it dawned on
me that I was about to have
two turkey burgers a few
hours before serving 23
pounds, 7 ounces of turkey to
a party of four.
Dumb.
Anyway, I ate my turkey
burgers and was reading
turkey-cooking tips on the
Butterball Web site, or some


the piles of important papers.
When the electricity went out
it was very difficult to sift
through the piles and differ-
entiate the generator's oper-
ational manual from a copy
of the White House's plan to
invade Iran that was printed
in the New York Times.
Fortunately, President
Bush must also have piles of
important papers at the
White House because he lost
the Iran invasion plans and
saved his approval ratings
from dipping any further if
that was possible. ....
Anyway, just like Presi-
dent-elect Obama, I decided
in mid-November that it was

such place. I was a little sur-
prised to read that a 12-14
pound turkey can feed about
five adults and two children.
Again, we had 23 pounds, 7
ounces of bird in the oven.
By the time Mom and Aunt
Kay arrived around 5 p.m.,
the turkey was right where it
should be and the side dishes
were just waiting to be re-
heated a bit
Preparing the meal was
fun and I have no problem
spending the equivalent of a
workday in and around the
kitchen, but it was a lot of
work and a lot of food.

were still content nibbling on
their first servings. That was
the same case when I went
back for thirds.
By the time dinner was
over and the leftovers were to
be put away, we'd whittled
the beast of a turkey down to
a trim 21 pounds, 1 ounce or
so.
When the evening was
done and our guests had
headed to the hotel, it
dawned on me that there
were two turkeys in the
house on Thanksgiving the
one now weighing 21 pounds,
1 ounce or so and the one
who rationalized buying a 23-

The latter of the two was
stuffed.

Anyway, just like President-elect Obama,
I decided in mid-November that it was
time for me to have my own Cabinet.
I went to OfficeMax and bought one.,


President-elect Obama has
had to do some heavy lifting
to build his Cabinet and I
soon learned that I had to do
some of my own. When I got
home I realized my bulky
cabinet weighed more than
100 pounds. I wasn't going to
be able to drag it up the 11-
foot stairway to our home.
I had carefully measured
the height of my Cabinet be-
cause I wanted to stick the
four-drawer metal monster
into a closet No one really
wants to look at a Cabinet,


and President-elect Obama
needs to keep that in mind.
Big names like Hillary Clin-
ton and Larry Summers don't
want to spend any time in the
closet
We had company last week-
end and I convinced all of the
able-bodied men to help me
haul my new Cabinet up the
stairs.
We stuffed the Cabinet into
the closet and the next two
evenings I spent about eight
hours going through my piles
of important papers and put-


ting them in file folders. It is
amazing how "unimportant"
papers become after they've
sat in a pile of other so-called
important papers for more
than a year.
I threw out more than I
filed.
When the job was done and
all the important documents
were in easily accessible
Cabinet drawers, I attempted
to close the closet door and
put my new Cabinet out of
sight
The door would not close.
While the cabinet's height
was fine in my den closet, I
had failed to measure the
depth of the metal monster
and it turned out to be one
inch deeper than my closet
I should point out that my

100-pound Cabinet now
weighed about 300 pounds
with all of the important doc-

My Cabinet isn't going any-

probably closed for the last
time.

my Cabinet dilemma as he
tries to put his Cabinet to-

Be neat
This is in regards to all the
problems at the Oaklawn
Cemetery. Nobody's consid-
ering people that own prop-
erty and homes right across
from this cemetery. You
come home at night and
there's so many lights on
over there and so many per-
sonal items everywhere. This
is supposed to be a place for
the peaceful, to be very
peaceful. You need to obey
the rules and take all your
personal items home. One
flag is enough. Consider the
homeowners that live right
there. We're paying taxes and
we own a home that faces
the cemetery. Maybe you
could consider us also. Re-
move your items. Make it
look better, neat.
Skip surcharge
I see where oil prices have
dropped under $50 today on
Thursday (Nov. 20), and I'm
seriously considering not
paying my oil surcharge on
my electric bill. I know
there's been a lot of talk
about how these electric
companies have free license
to do what they want ...
Costly condiments
Well, folks, just when you
thought it couldn't get any
worse, it has. In addition to
war, unemployment, terror-
ism, bailout, etc., this past
weekend the wife and I ate at
a local (fast-food restaurant).
The server promptly dropped
six to eight ketchup packets
on our tray while awaiting our
order. I politely told her they
could keep them since we
didn't use them, but asked if
we could get a few barbecue
sauces instead. The response
was that they have them, but
would have to charge us
22 cents each for them.
What's this? Now we have to
pay for condiments in addi-
tion to our value meal?
What's next a surcharge
on cream and sugar for our
coffee? They had no problem
with the ketchup. Is barbecue
sauce on the endangered,


species list? Must I smuggle
a bottle in to enjoy a meal
without being gouged yet
again?
Waiting at St. Peter's
Medical commercials. All
my years of living in other
sections of the country, at
lunchtime I never heard so
many medical commercials
and different things that are
wrong with you here in
Florida. I mean it's like sitting
in St. Peter's waiting
room to die. Just at
lunchtime, all these
medical commer-
cials are ridiculous.
Remove signs
Now that the vot-
ing time is over with
and it's been well C
over a week, why is CAL
it that we're still see- 563-(
ing...signs still plas-
tered throughout the
county? Is there not a law
that states they have to be
down by a certain time from
these candidates? ... Please
come down and get your
signs. Tired of looking at
them.
Look at roads
Congratulations to our
newly elected county com-
missioners. I hope one prior-
ity of the new board is to
improve the quality of road-
work being done in our
county. With the added gas
tax, our taxpayers deserve a
better quality than we've had
before. A good example of
substandard work was the
paving on Village Center
Boulevard in Sugarmill
Woods.
Great pro dough
I just want to say thanks to
the person at Sweetbay that
found the pizza dough that
you started selling recently. -
Can't begin to tell you how
much money I've wasted try-
ing to make dough at home
by hand over the years.
Sometimes I was proud;
most of the time not. Incon-
sistency is the norm. I've
tried several recipes and

flours but couldn't get that
pizza-parlor smell, taste and
workability. Sal's Italian
Restaurant was the only
place that gladly sold me
dough over the years, but
that's a 45-minute drive one
way. This dough makes me
feel like a pro. It's from New
Jersey.
Leave Fido home
I don't understand the peo-
ple in Florida that think they
have to take their
JND dogs everywhere.
You see them in
r shopping carts and
R you see them on
leashes in stores.
You know, there are
people out there that
are allergic to dogs.
As far as I'm con-
cerned, a dog has no
)579 business being in the
store. Leave your dog
at home where it's
nice and cool and air-condi-
tioned. They have no busi-
ness being in a store.
Hang-up hang-ups
To these banks and furni-
ture stores and all that go
around advertising, hanging
stuff on your doorknob and
in your door: To me, my door-
knob and my door's personal
property and I would appre-
ciate it if they'd keep their
stuff off of it.
Fundamental need
Today is Sunday, Nov. 23.
Well, well, well, our county
commissioners made the
front page again. They have
no idea about the Ozello
Water (Association) suit
against the county. Hey,
guys, that's us. Aren't they
aware that water is a funda-
mental necessity? All you
people voted for them again.
Commissioner Bartell had
no idea, Thrumston knew a
little bit and Damato is only
looking out for himself, not
us, the citizens of the
county. Don't forget, we pay
their salaries and they are in
la-la land about important
issues. Just stop and think,
we have several more years


of non-interest and service
by our commissioners. We
made two changes. Next
time around, clear the
board.
Bless you
I want to express my sin-
cere thanks to the new
Church Without Walls and all
the volunteers that came out
on Saturday, Nov. 22, to help
give out the turkey donations
to the public. To look around
and see all the people in line
with small children, as well
as myself, brought tears to
my eyes. I never thought I
would have to be a recipient.
My husband is a retired vet-
eran from the military and
still working, we have a child
(in their) first year in college
trying to make it, and I work
two jobs in the medical field.
This is a time like no other
that we need each other.
And, people, don't be so
proud that you allow yourself
to go without. Organizations
like these put hope in people
and keep their spirits up.
Please keep doing what
you're doing for the public.
And let me, as a forever-
grateful Citrus County resi-
dent, say to those of you that
can make donations, please
do. We are hurting in Citrus
County ... Please don't be
selfish if you are more fortu-
nate than others. You will be
blessed tenfold over...
thanks again.
You're welcome
In last Sunday's article by
Dr. Dixon, he has added a
tremendous amount of light.
to a very complicated sub-
ject: the economy. Thank
you, Chronicle, for publishing
his articles. We just. love
reading them. Thank you
again.


Trashy lot
I'm calling about the
garbage that's on lot 2801
on Madison Street, off Inde-
pendence. It seems people
can't use the garbage can, so
they've just been throwing
their garbage in a vacant lot.
It really messes up the neigh-
borhood and I really think
something needs to be done
about it. I'm just a concerned
citizen.
Trash cop
I was just wondering,
where is the county trash cop
these days? When he was
hired, you could read about
him doing his job catching il-
legal trash dumpers almost


Long-term benefits
People keep complaining
about the little extra cost a
month that the nuclear
power plant is going to
charge. Think about the long-
term benefits of it. It's going
to be a big job; it's going to
require a lot of workers. That
means a lot of unemployed
people will get a job back,
which they'll trickle that
money down in to the com-
munity. Also, it would help if
Progress Energy sits here
and hires within the state in-
stead of bringing all these
out-of-state workers. The
Floridians are paying for this
plant. That money ought to
stay in this state, not be
given to companies ... out of
Florida. They ought to give
the jobs to the Floridians.
They're the ones that are
paying for it, not the out-of-
staters.
Confusing figures
The Nov. 23.article,
"Progress CEO talks nuke
costs," is extremely mislead-
ing at the very end when it
says, "Costs should decline."
I have an article from the St.
Pete Times listing the cost


weekly in the Chronicle. I fig-
ure he's like most other
county employees; make a
big splash and then fading
into the background only sur-
facing on paydays. He should
take a look around West Pixie
Lane and West Broadway
Street ... Looks like a landfill
there, only worse.
Money saver?
Being a new resident in Cit-
rus County and Forest Lake
North, I would like to thank
the county for having an
open garbage drop-off on
North Highland Park Drive
24/7. There are garbage
cans on both sides of the
road for you. What a money
saver.


per month in each succeed-
ing year while this is being
built, and with the exception
of next year, which it goes
down to $10.45 from
$11.42, each other year is
higher than the previous year,
up to $27.39 a month extra
in the year 2014. So I think
the information there should
be more clear.
Resent spending
I'm calling in regard to yes-
terday's Sound Off com-
ments about Progress
Energy and the increases,
and to today's article in the
Sunday paper (Nov. 23)
where the president and CEO
talks about the need for the
increases: My complaint -
and I've never seen it ad-
dressed is that Progress
Energy is a major sponsor of
a slew of events in this area.
If they're spending the
money on that instead of
what they need for the fuel
cost adjustment or what they
need for this new nuclear
plant, we'd all be better off. I
resent the fact that they're
spending my money to spon-
sor all of these events and
then still increase my bill.


= Hot Corner: AUTO BAILOUT==


Don't blame union
Regarding Hot Corner, "Car-
makers": The Big Three, as
far as the management is
concerned, their failure is
mostly in part to their inabil-
ity to anticipate the needs,
with this ecbhomy,' of the
product line of what they're
offering and how much the ve-
hicles are and how low the
mileage is. The union is not to
blame. Just because they pro-
vide a good wage, benefits
and a pension plan, doesn't
meant that they're responsi-
ble for the Big Three's inabil-
ity to anticipate what this
market was going to need
with the economy the way it
is. Don't blame the union;
blame the marketing depart-
ments of the Big Three.


High on the hog
The only way I think that the
automobile industry ought to
get 1 cent of the American tax
dollar is if they all get rid of '
their private jets and corporate
jets and' all thatand start using
-commercial flights, -and that all
the CEOs only make $1 million
a year until every penny's paid
back to the government, and'
that their autoworkers take a
10 percent pay cut, too, and
that not just the CEOs, but the
vice presidents and all the
brass under them, take a 25 or
30 percent slice on pay. Be-
cause other than the actual
union workers, they're all living
way high on the hog. The man-
agement is wasting a lot of
money. It's their own fault
they're in the state they're in.

preceded by a 1-hour open house during which members of the public may
meet and talk with NRC staff members on an informal basis.

For planning purposes, interested parties are encouraged to pre-register to
present oral comments by contacting Mr. Douglas Bruner, NRC
Environmental Project Manager, at (800) 368-5642, extension 2730 or via
e-mail at Douglas.Bruner@nrc.gov, or by contacting Ms. Jessie Muir at
(800) 368-5642, extension 0491 or via email at Jessie.Muir(@nrc.gov no
later than November 26, 2008. Interested parties may also pre-register to
present oral comments by e-mailing Levy.COLEIS@(nrc.gov no later than
November 26, 2008. Interested persons may also register to make
comments within 15 minutes of the meeting at the Florida National Guard
Armory. Individual comment time may be limited by the time available.

Way to gol
Applause for Keri Lynn
McHale. The article she
wrote about Ashley Rhodes-
Courter is amazing. I wish it
was in bold print so every-
body in Crystal River could
read that. She's not just talk-
ing to a few foster parents or
foster kids who will become.
She's talking to all those kids
that are already in that situa-
tion. She's talking about
those kids that are going
through it now. I wish there
were more reporters at the
Chronicle like her.
Shame on you
Shame on you to the teach-
ers of Crystal River High
School who refused to read to,
the students ... The Depart-
ment of Education should
.hear about this after they *"
have worked so hard to get
kids to read throughout the
state, and you took it too far
not allowing the other teach-
ers to read out loud because
of your personal opinion.
Show some respect
This is for people with mul-'
tiple dogs in (the) Highlands:
Please have some respect
and compassion for your
neighbors. Some of us don't
have dogs for a reason; it
could be nerves, and your
dogs are driving us nuts. The
constant barking is a prob-
lem. Also, the odor; there's a
very bad one when it is hot
weather with houses being
this close.,. ,,
Heartless
Right across from the. sher-
iff's (office) on Nov. 19 at ap-
proximately 1 p.m., we
helped a.gentleman that was.

die of the highway, at least
50 vehicles went by and no
one seems to care anymore.
We helped him. Don't know
his name, but I hope he is .
OK. It sure is a shame that
no one but us and one other
girl went out of our way to
help. Where is the true heart
today? You tell me.
Fan of college
This is in response to "No
butt kicking" in Wednes-
.days'paper, Nov. 19. The


writer states, and I quote,
.'But if we would
have used -he vot.
ers' votes and not
...the Electoral Col-
,,lege votes, then
possibly it would
have been a little bit
closer than saying
that the Republi-
cans' butts were CAL
kicked." I'm assum- r P r
"ing he or she is re- Ut0
ferring to the ,
popular vote. In the 2000.


3-C


election, Bush beat Gore by
lND a mere five electoral
JND yotes. In 2004 Bush
g%1 beat Kerry by 35
jrUr electoral votes. Not,
much butt-icking
going on in those
two elections. But in
2008 Obama beat
McCain by 192 elec-
toral votes. Now
)579 that's a butt kick-
IU ing. Now, that being
said, I've always
been a fan of banning the


Electoral College and using
the popular vote:
True irony
How ironic. As I was driv-
ing down (County Road) 491
through Beverly Hills today, I
noticed a street sign that
said "Financial Way And as
I looked over, I noticed it was
a dead end.

questioning the flyover of
the county helicopter in the
wee hours of the night. Ob-
viously there was unlawful
activity going on in the area
at the time. Pine Ridge is
not immune to having unsa-
vory persons who are not
law-abiding citizens. Of
course the sheriff's (office)
won't tell you the reason
when you call in to them.
After all, you could be the
individual for whom they are
searching. Next time make
sure your residence is se-
curely locked, and have a
phone near at hand in case
of home invasion by the
suspects.
Landfill landline
Just a little helpful hint for
all the people having diffi-
culty finding a telephone
number for the Citrus County
Landfill. The telephone num-
ber is (352) 527-7670. The
number is listed in the Citrus
County phonebook in the
county government pages,
page 4, under the title of
"Solid Waste Management
Division."'
Why slow down?
I just don't get it. We had
a speed limit on (U.S.) 41
South at 55 mph until the
four lane went through. Up
in Citrus Hills it was 55 mph
until they put the four lane
through. Now we have a cou-
ple more speed traps there
and here...Now code en-
forcement sheriff's office is
at (County Road) 491.
That's not a divided highway
and it still has just as many
driveways as it did before,
unlike the others, and it's
55. I don't get it. I mean,
why the slowdown on the di-
vided highways when you
have half the driveways
now?

The U.S. Small Business Ad-

Office signed a Strategic Alliance
Memorandum (SAM) with the
State of Florida's Office of Sup-
plier Diversity/Department of
Management Services in order
to strengthen and expand con-

Florida.
Under the formal partnership
agreement, the State of Florida's
Office of Supplier Diversity will
work with the SBA's North
Florida District Office to market
their business development serv-
ices and to reach out to small
business owners across the


State of Florida. "The purpose of
this Memorandum is to develop
and foster mutual understanding
and strengthen the working rela-

strengthen and expand small
business development through-
out the State of Florida," says
Wilfredo J. Gonzalez, SBA North
Florida District Director. "Each
Party has separate services and
resources which, when delivered
in coordination with each other,
will provide greater benefits to
the small, minority and women-
owned businesses across
Florida."

New store opens
in Crystal River
The UPS Store, at 6752 W.
Gulf-to-Lake Highway (Publix
Shopping Center), has opened
just in time for the holidays. The
UPS Store owner, Jerillyn Clark,
looks forward to serving the
Crystal River community.
One would think it would be
challenging to open a new busi-
ness with the holidays right
around the corner. However, be-
cause The UPS Store services
meet the needs of holiday ship-
pers, the timing couldn't be bet-
ter. Clark says, "Let us
professionally pack and ship
gifts and goodies for you -
that's why we're here. When the
gift you selected with love and
we packed with care is opened,
the thoughtfulness will shine
through."
The UPS Store prides itself
on having specially trained and
certified packing experts. They
can pack anything, from fragile
glassware to larger items like
motorcycles and armoires, en-
suring that customers' holiday
packages arrive intact.
In addition to packing and .
shipping, The UPS Store offers
black-and-white and color dupli-
cations, document finishing
(binding, laminating, etc.), no-
tary, printing services (business
cards, letterhead, rubber
stamps, etc.), office and pack-
aging supplies, and more.
For more helpful hints and in-
formation go to www.theups-
store.com.
The UPS Store locations are
independently owned and oper-
ated by licensed franchisees of
Mail Boxes Etc., Inc., a UPS
company: With more than 6,000
locations around the world, The
UPS Store and Mail Boxes Etc.
brands comprise the largest net-
work of retail shipping, postal

Class offers tips for


winter lawn care


even out of ten Citrus
County residents were born
outside of Florida. That
means most of us grew up with
grass that was almost effortless to
grow and that you actually wanted
to walk through bare-
foot. Growing grass in
Florida is obviously dif-
ferent from growing
grass "up North." Luck-
ily, the Citrus County
UF/IFAS Extension is
here to help with your "
lawn and gardening is- \
sues. The extension of- .
fice is here to connect
you to the University of Audre
Florida's vast body of FY
knowledge.
One of our best resources is our
dedicated and skillful group of
Master Gardener volunteers. Mas-
ter Gardeners are available to an-
swer your gardening questions
Monday through Friday from 8:30
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. They can be
reached by phone at 527-5700, by
e-mail at extension@bocc.cit
rus.fl.us, or in person at 3650 W
Sovereign Path, Suite 1, Lecanto,


FL 34461.
Master Gardeners also offer
plant clinics throughout the
county. Plant clinics include a
short presentation on a timely
topic followed by an open forum
Q&A. Plant clinics are
offered at 1:30 p.m. the
second Friday of each
month at Coastal Re-
gion Library in Crystal
River; at 1 p.m. the sec-
ond Tuesday of each
"'- J month at Lakes Region
Library in Inverness,

Special to the Chronicle
1 -- : This flat-top tennis racket probably dates from the 19th century, and was made by a well-known
manufacturer. It might sell for between $400 to $600. CENTER: This kewpie doll is about 60 years
old. Though these dolls are of interest to collectors, the poor condition of this one could conceivably
hurt its potential value. This ceramic umbrella stand was most likely made in France in the 19th
century. It would probably fetch less than .$1,000.

One of the featured homes belongs to
Jayne Bennett Smith of Crystal River
"When you walk through the front
door, we want our house to be elegant
but comfortable," Smith said. "We want
our friends and family always to be
comfortable."
The house, which sits right on the
golf course of the Plantation Golf Re-
sort & Spa, features lots of granite, lots
of columns and lots of openness.
One of Smith's favorite features is
the double-sided fireplace that greets


guests as soon as they walk in through
the glass front doors.
"It gives such ambience," Smith said.
The columns throughout the house
are a tip of the hat to her Atlanta roots.
The d6cor is Bombay-style.
"This is what everyone loves," Smith
said as she guided her guest into the
master bathroom and turned on the
triple-head shower.
Last Christmas during a party, guest
U.S. Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite disap-
peared. Smith said she found her in
the bathroom with some other party
guests, marveling over the shower,
gathering ideas for her own home.
For the holidays, Smith has deco-


rated her home with lots of poinsettias.
Twin trees with drop icicles stand in
the front windows. The main tree; in
the great room, carries out the elegant
yet comfortable theme, with Thomas
Kinkade ornaments, old-fashioned
Santas and angels.
"We like peace and love," Smith said
of the tree ornaments. "It's a throw-,
back to the '60s."
Contemporary and colorful doesn't
even begin to describe the Terra Vista
home of Ellen and Mike Saunders.

ico and framed silk scarves from Thai-

A sunny delight for Florida gardeners


JANE WEBER/For the Chronicle
ABOVE: Mexican sunflowers are closely related to true sunflowers. They prefer full sun and will shade
companion plants growing nearby. LEFT: Mexican sunflowers bloom in November and grow up to 15
feet tall.


here is a giant-sized sun-
flower that reaches tree-
like height in one season.
Mexican sunflower, Tithonia
diversifolia, is a deciduous,
frost-tender perennial that can
get 15 feet tall by the time it
blooms in November. It origi-
nated in Brazil but is common
in Central America and the
West Indian islands of the
Caribbean Sea in Zones 9 to 11.
Mexican gardeners love it, too.
Mexican sunflower or tree
marigold is one of 10 species in
the Tithonia genus, which is
closely related to true sunflow-
ers of the Helianthus genus.
Tithonia comes from a hot cli-


mate, but needs profuse, bright yel-
ample water to grow low flowers in No-

plants ready for market. Plant
at the back of a flowerbed,
preferably to the north or east,
as it will cast shade on compan-
ion plants. Allow lots of room
for growth.
Another plant also bears the
common name Mexican sun-
flower. Tithonia rotundifolia is
an annual grown from seed
planted shortly after the last
frost when the soil warms to 65
degrees in March. The common
variety grows about 3 feet tall
with a 3-foot spread, so it needs
plenty of space in the garden.
You can find seed of selected
varieties like "Fiesta del Sol,"
which grows only 1 foot tall, or
"Torch" and "Goldfinger" at 4
feet tall. Save dry seed in a
paper envelope to plant in the
spring.
Leaves are heart-shaped in a
rich, medium green. Yellowish
leaves indicate the plant needs
more nutrients, so try adding
an inch of well rotted compost
or finely ground mulch to the
soil to remedy the situation.
Dahlia-like flowers are reddish
orange with a swollen neck on
sturdy stems. They must be in
full sun to flower well.
Many gardeners feed flowers
regularly with 70 percent time-
released 12-2-14 fertilizer that
lasts six to eight weeks.
Amending the soil with or-
ganic vegetable compost or nat-
ural plant humus is a green
option that retains soil mois-
ture and does not leach into
ground water and the aquifer.
Mexican sunflowers thrive well
on summer rains, but enjoy
weekly irrigation if it doesn't
rain regularly.
Whether Mexican sunflower
is the giant perennial or the
seeded annual, both are beau-
tiful flowers in the garden or
vase.
Enjoy both until frost readies
them for the compost pile. Chip
up the stems with a mulching
lawnmower so they will be in
smaller pieces that decay
faster. Feed the finished com-
post back to the earth to nour-
ish flowers next season.

tion is required due to limited
class size. Call (352) 527-5700 to
pre-register and to have your
name added to the Extension-
Connection mailing list so that
you'll find out about other up-
coming classes, such as "Get-
ting to Know Your Septic
System" from noon to 1 p.m.
Wednesday, Dec. 3.
The lawn care class will
cover basic rules for maintain-
ing a healthy lawn. For exam-
ple, over-irrigation is especially
common in the fall and winter
because seasonal adjustments'
are not made to the irrigation
timer. Over-irrigated turfgrass
requires more maintenance in


the form of mowing and is more
susceptible to disease and pest
problems because of its weak,
succulent growth.
Common lawn weeds, pests
and diseases will also be cov-
ered. For example, now is the
time of year to be on the look-
out for brown patch. Brown
patch is a fungal disease that af-
fects all grasses, but is espe-
cially common in St. Augustine
grass. The disease is most likely
to be observed from November
through May.
Using slow-release instead of
quick-release nitrogen and irri-
gating only between 2 and 8
a.m. may discourage brown
patch disease.

They also have an extensive
collection of work from local
artists framed paintings in

floor cloths, a bright pink chair
painted by local Dutch artist
Jeannette Berndsen.
"I'm a member and former
marketing director for the Art

to collect artwork from local
artists," Mrs. Saunders said.
Tour guests will not want to
miss this home's mix of con-

glass curio cabinet filled with
memorabilia from around the
world.
For those who appreciate the
decor and furnishings of the
mid-1800s, the Citrus Springs

wood will be a treat. They
admit to "adoring" this period
and have personally crafted
every room to reflect the feel of

their home have been featured

The fourth home belongs to

(included), the Striker Magnetic
LED Light is available at hard-

How about a new type of
power saw that not only cuts
through the toughest wood, but


also sinks its teeth into marble,
tile, copper, aluminum, plastics,
fiberglass, cement board and
drywall? A typical circular saw
operates at 2,500 revolutions
per minute or less, while the
aptly named Crocodile Saw
blade spins at 4,000 rpm for
solid performance and for mak-
ing straight-line razor cuts. The
saw comes with four 3 1/4-inch
blades that cut to a maximum
depth of 1 1/16 inches. The
Crocodile is a go-to saw for any
number of projects, such as


basement remodeling, han-
dling cutouts for outlet boxes,
tile flooring and kitchen back-
splash jobs, custom cutouts for
stereo sound system installa-
tions, plunge cuts, HVAC
cutouts for whole-house hu-
midifiers and vents, trim work,
crafts and hobbies. The Croco-
dile retails for $99.99 and is
available at www.amazon.com.
If you have ever tried to drive
a nail in a tight or restricted
space, you know why nail guns
are superior to the common


hammer. Can't afford a nail gun
and compressor? Craftsman,
the most popular name in tools,
has introduced the NEXTEC
Hammerhead Auto Hammer.
This new tool operates similar
to a palm nailer without the in-
convenience of an air hose and
it can drive nails or tacks, in-
cluding 16-penny framing nails,
in seconds flat. The Hammer-
head Auto Hammer is powered
by a 12-volt lithium-ion battery
and arrived in Sears just in
time for Christmas. The sug-


gested retail price for the new
Hammer Head Auto Hammer
is $99.99. Visit www.sears.com.
