Geoff Greene
following through
on campaign
promise.


To hear Property Appraiser
Geoff'Greene tell it, the 13 people
he fired had neither face nor
name.
Their experience didn't matter
Job performance was not a con-
sideration.


Rather, they were simply vic-
tims of a poor economy and
Greene had made a campaign
promise to cut spending in the of-
fice.
Greene, who took over Jan. 6,
called each employee into his of-
fice, one by one. There, he intro-
duced them to the new office
attorney, Robert Christensen.
Greene told the employees he
had to make cutbacks, and then


said their job was being elimi-
nated. They had the choice of
signing a paper stating they were
voluntarily resigning, or be ter-
minated.
Of the 13, one signed the paper.
Greene's staffing decisions did-
n't spell bad news for everyone.
He replaced three of the-fired
employees with someone else -
each at a higher salary than the
one let go.


He demoted one employee
and replaced her with Lenny
Navickas, the man he faced in
the November election. The
starting pay for Navickas was
higher than what was being
paid to the woman he replaced,
wyho was a 28-year employee
with the Property Appraiser's
Office.

Florida Lawmakers raised
the cost of all traffic citations
effective today.
With the passing of State

Fines for 15-19 mph over the
speed limit increase from $125
to $150 and fines for 20-29
mph over increase from $150
to $175.
The increase will subsidize
the courts, state attorneys,
and public defenders.
Traffic violators will lose the
18 percent driver-safety
course discount, but can still


avoid getting points on their
driver's license. Citizens must
pay the fine and make election
to take the course within 30
days of receiving the citation.

CCSO seeking Print links suspect to stolen safe


PSO volunteers


Special to the Chronicle
The Citrus County Sheriff's
Office is looking for more
community-minded men and
women with an interest in be-
coming active members of the
agency's public service offi-
cer (PSO) program.
The program had its start
in January 2002, when volun-
teers were recruited to assist
sworn deputies by conducting
well-being checks and han-
dling minor citizen com-
plaints, such as vandalisms,
bicycle thefts and found prop-
erty. These PSOs also helped
deputies with traffic control
at vehicle crashes and com-
munity events.
In 2003, the program ex-
panded to include marine
PSOs who help promote per-
sonal safety on Citrus
County's waterways. Road
PSOs received additional
training starting in early 2004,
and now have the ability to
handle minor traffic crash in-
vestigations.
They also may issue certain
traffic citations. The program
expanded even more in 2006
by adding PSOs trained in
serving non-enforceable civil
process and assisting the
agency's Civil Section under
Judicial Services. And in 2008,
PSOs were given the option of
receiving additional training
for duties associated with
child protective investiga-
tions. According to Sheriff Jeff
Dawsy, the agency's close to 30
public service officers play a
crucial role in the day-to-day
operations of the sheriff's of-
fice. They're assigned, prima-
rily during daylight hours,
both to the east and west sides
of the county, seven days a
week Two PSO sergeants
serve as working supervisors.
It should be noted that


these are not sworn law en-
forcement positions. PSOs are
strictly volunteers arid do not
have arrest powers.
All new PSO recruits first
spend a minimum of 50 ride-
along hours with certified
deputies, during day and
nighttime shifts, to learn first-
hand about the agency's daily
operations. If their interest
remains, recruits move on to
two weeks of mandatory class-
room training that includes
radio communications, report
writing, defensive driving, se-
lective traffic enforcement
and more.
After mastering these disci-
plines, recruits are assigned
to PSO field training officers
for additional training and in-
struction. Following gradua-
tion, new PSOs who wish to
pursue either marine, serving
civil process or duties associ-
ated with child protective in-
vestigations can receive
specialized training in these
chosen fields.
Sheriff Dawsy contends
that his volunteer PSOs have
more responsibility and au-
thority than many others in
similar, paid positions in law
enforcement agencies
around the state. Interested
applicants must be at least 18
years old, submit an applica-
tion and pass a criminal
background check To be con-
sidered, candidates meet
with a selection committee
comprised of current PSOs
and sheriff's office leader-
ship.
Applications must be sub-
mitted to the sheriff's office
no later than Friday, Feb. 20,
for the upcoming spring class.
Anyone with an interest in be-
coming a volunteer PSO is
asked to call the program's
director, Dep. Tony Boline, at
249-2801.

"She can do things that last forever,"
Greene said.
Greene told a reporter he resents questions
about Citrus Hills connections to his election.
"I'm a very honest person," he said. "I owe
nobody nothing."
Greene said the personnel move netted the
office about $239,415 in salary and benefit
savings, or nearly 6 percent of his budget.

The fired employees touched nearly every
aspect of the Property Appraiser's Office, from
customer service to the appraisal department
Pay ranges varied as well. Some earned in
the mid-$20,000s. The highest paid employee
to lose her job was the human resources man-
ager, who earned $56,861.'


Greene and Craig said the position was
eliminated because his office plans to hand
many human resources duties to county gov-
ernment.
The firings included Dan Armstrong, the
senior agricultural specialist who was hired
in December 2004. Armstrong, who has a
bachelor's degree in agriculture science, re-
ceived high marks on his employee evalua-
tion in November.
Armstrong also played a role in the decision
by Greene's predecessor, Melanie Hensley, to
deny an agricultural exemption for cattle
e grazing pn Greene's
employees property in Lecanto.
Greene appealed the
early every denial, but dropped the

Armstrong was earning $40,987. His re-
placement, Robert "Bobby" Bass, comes in at
$42,000 a year.
Bass has no background in agricultural ap-
praising; however, he has owned cattle oper-
ations in Florida and Georgia and also owned
a 200-acre pecan grove, according to a biog-
raphy that Greene provided.
His employment application states he re-
tired in 2008 as superintendent of a con-
struction company and prior to that owned
Bass Pipeline Construction Co. for 26 years
before selling the business in 2004.
Greene, who would not discuss his reasons
for firing Armstrong, said Bass is a perfect fit
for the office.
"He's extremely intelligent," Greene said.
'"Ag is not rocket science. What I'm getting is
his life experiences."
Greene said his new hires would prove a
benefit to Citrus County taxpayers.
He said: "I'm bringing on savvy people."

And the nominees were...


Editor's note: The Chroni-
cle's annual call for Citizens
of the Year nominations al-
ways brings the focus to those
in our community whose car-
ing nature deserve special
recognition. Here are nomi-
nees as submitted by our
readers:
"0 Ernest Hopper, curricu-
lum coordinator; Chuck
Everhart, assistant principal;
and Andy Nott, school psy-
chologist, all from the Ren-'
aissance Center, nominated
Principal Dave Cook "for his
unwavering dedication to at-
risk young adults, as evi-
denced by the progress and
growth of the Renaissance
Center in Lecanto."
Edith Speight, Crystal
River Primary School princi-
pal, nominated Shirley War-
ren. "She has truly touched
the lives of many children in
her role as a foster parent for
many years," Speight wrote.
"Mrs. Warren is a member of
the Mount Olive Baptist
Church where she is a
teacher with the youth de-
partment, an usher, a mem-
ber of the finance committee
and works on special pro-


CITIZENS
Continued from Page Al

While "community effort"
seems best to describe the
outpouring of interest in the
Three Sisters project, it's
Blue-McLean and Houston
who are leading the way.
And that's why the Citrus
County Chronicle Editorial
Board named Blue-McLean
and Houston as its 2007 Citi-
zens of the Year.
"I've never seen two peo-
ple with better organiza-
tional abilities," said former
state Rep. Helen Spivey
who, with the Save the Man-
atee Club, is helping with
the Three Sisters fundrais-
ing. "They literally keep on
top of it, and not in a power
play kind of way. They're
keeping track of everything
and gently coaxing it along."
Dr. K.C. Nayfield, a yeteri-'
narian who has helped rally
business support for the
project, said the Leadership
from.' ._B.lue-McLean aid.
HO1 's 'is invaluable.
"Without either one of
them and their talents. we
never would have gotten to
where we're at now, which is
in a pretty good position,"
Nayfield said.
Three Sisters is a prime
gathering spot for manatees
and a worldwide tourist at-
traction.
Efforts to buy the 57-acre
property off Kings Bay Drive
to avoid development are
not new, but they picked up
in 2005 when it was for sale.
Environmentalists feared
development could lead to
pollution in the spring and
have a negative impact on
the manatees. They also saw
the potential purchase as a
way for people to view man-
atees without actually get-
ting in the water with them.
Blue-McLean, 53, came to
Inverness in 2003 from her
native Orlando where she
worked as a legal assistant
for the Nature Conservatory,
an organization that helps
move environmentally sen-
sitive land from private
hands to the public for pro-
tection.
She and her husband,
Bob, had wanted to move to
Citrus County; Bob's. cousin
is former Inverness Mayor
Joyce Rogers.
Eventually they found a
home and settled in. Blue-
McLean still works part-
time as a legal assistant for
three attorneys.


grams..Mrs. Warren worked
at Carver School and Crystal
River Primary School for 38
years and she has always
demonstrated honesty, in-
tegrity and a spirit of working
hard. Her love for children
has always been evident."
Several people nomi-
nated Douglas Alexander,
pastor of the New Church
Without Walls. Comments in-
cluded:
Roberta Wessel, Floral
City: "He does so much for
people in Citrus County."
Harold and Joan Weath-
erly, Inverness: "He helps the
poor and needy who really
need it"
Jeannie Strayer, Her-
nando: "He does so much for
people. He should be com-
mended on how he helps this
county."
Rodney Wessel, Her-
nando: "I've known Doug for
years and I've seen how he's
helped so many people in
dire need."
Dan Craft, Inverness:
"He does an honorable
amount of service for the
community."
June Parsons, Inverness

She started volunteering
at the Homosassa Springs
Wildlife State Park and
joined the Friends of the
Chassahowitzka Refuge. In
1995, the Friends group and
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Serv-
ice eyed the purchase of the
Three Sisters property from
Harvey Goodman.
That deal didn't happen
because an ownership group
headed by Tampa business-
man Hal Flowers offered
more than what, was avail-
able through a state grant.
Flowers and his partners
paid $10.5 million for the
property, and then began
working on plans for a resi-
dential community there.
Houston, 57, was living in-
Georgia with his wife Susan.
Houston had retired after 30
years with the city of St. Pe-
tersburg, where, as an assis-
tant city manager, he helped
lead many segments of that
city's government.
The Houstons wanted to
move back to Florida to live
closer to their grown chil-
dreu..wthQ,.i\e i-a Tampa
He appiled"for positions in
Orange Count.* and Cr..,tal
Riker. Houston said he
never made it to the Orange
Count.\ Interview because
Crystal River seemed like
the perfect fit. He took the
job in 2006.
In 2006. Flowers ap-
'proached Jim Kraus. then
Crystal River National
Refuge manager, to discuss
the idea of selling the prop-
erty to the federal govern-
nient.
"They %wanted to keep it
quiet for a while." Blue-
AlcLean said.
Kraus took the idea to
Blue-McLean, who was pres-
ident of the Friends of the
Chassahowitzka
They went to the Florida
Communities Trust, which
suggested that the city act as
the lead agency to help fa-
cilitate the transaction and
grant.
Blue-McLean said it
seemed the chances looked
better than ever before.
'"We had a %willing seller,"
she said. "Everyone w as \'er
open about getting it done."
Houston knew very little
about the property. He knew
plans called for 300-plus
homes and he also knew that
as the city manager, he
would do v hat the council
told him to do.
So when Blue-McLean
and others came to Houston
for help. he took the issue to
the council. By then, Nay-

nominated Alexander "for all
he has done feeding the poor
and homeless people in Cit-
rus County, keeping them
healthy and happy, showing
them someone cares."
Two people nominated
Dr. Edward Dodge, who was
the newspaper's citizen of
the year for 1987.
Leona Cooper wrote: "We
all enjoy Dr. Dodge's articles
in the Chronicle pertaining to
health and nutrition. They
are not only informative, but
also helpful to everyone.
They prove what a great hu-
manitarian he is. It is signifi-
cant that he has always
served in positions where he
could help people. The de-
sire to do so must run very
deep in the grain of his per-
sonality and beliefs. I do not
believe that much more can
be said for any man."
N Doug Mollmer nomi-
nated Paul Rosales of Bev-
erly Hills. Rosales is captain
of the Beverly Hills Surveil-
lance Unit, board member of
the Beverly Hills Recreation
Association, member of the
Beverly Hills Community
Council and member of the


Beverly Hills Emergency
Network, all volunteer posi-
tions.
"He does this all cheerfully
and with little reserve, often
times putting in extra hours
when needed," Mollmer
wrote.
Lynn Boyle of Hernando
nominated Becky Renfro, a
teacher with the Even Start
program at Crystal River Pri-
mary School.
"Becky is the kindest,
warmest best person and
teacher it has ever been my
pleasure to know," Boyle
wrote. "She goes far beyond
her official duties to help the
children in her care and
their parents who are mostly
single moms. Somehow,
when a child needs clothes or
a mom needs blankets, Becky
manages to magically come
up with what is needed, in-
cluding wedding decorations
for one of the newly marrying
moms in the program. I am in
my second year of volunteer-
ing one day a week in the pro-
gram, and am amazed at the
influence Becky has on the
children and their parents."

field and other business
leaders, plus various com-
munity groups, had rounded
up plenty of support.
The council chambers
were packed a year ago
when the council whole-
heartedly backed the city's
role in being the lead agency
in seeking the $6.3 million
state grant.
Houston became the point
man, organizing the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service,
Southwest, Florida Water,
Management District and
city into meetings to discuss
the role each would play in
the purchase.
The Florida Communities
Trust staff was supportive
from the start. George Will-
son, senior associate with
the. Conservation Fund in
Tallahassee, offered his
' '.'.' ,...< ,% -.,. '.- _.'.'.._- .' +_'^',


group's help in acting as a li-
aison between the various
agencies and Flowers' own-
ership group.
No one group stood alone.
"We see them all as
equals," Blue-McLean said.
"We all are pulled in to-
gether."
Houston, the low-key
leader in city hall, said he
wasn't sure what he was get-
ting into, having never been
involved in such a project
before.
"My. involvement was
more than what I expected it
to be," he said.
But he knew the project
has its merit.
"My wife works part'time
at the Best Western gift
shop. She's always telling
me how many people come
from ,around the world to


nated her "super, super
neighbors," Dorothy and Ken
Baker. "My husband passed
away April 15 with leukemia.
Ken was on call for any help
needed outside at all times
long before he died," she
wrote. "I went in the hospital
for six weeks. Dorothy looked
after my pets and home. Now
she shops for me and does
household chores I cannot
do. Neither will take any pay,
not even gas money."
Leonee Winburn of Inver-
ness nominated Barbara Mills.
"She has done great work for
our soldiers and to our com-
munity," Winburn wrote.
JanMarie Weatherford of
Hernando nominated Nola
Gravius, who retired last year
as executive director of Cit-
rus United Basket. "She be-
lieved that by giving someone
a fish he would eat today, but
teaching him to fish, he
would always eat," Weather-
ford wrote. "Nola has proven
herself as her 'brother's
keeper' in this community."
Ruth and Jim Clements
of Homosassa nominated Pa-
tience Nave for the good
work she does for her church
and the people of Haiti.
Nancy Foley of Inverness
noted Denise Lay, director of
educational ministries at the

see manatees and they want
to see manatees without get-
ting on a boat," he said.
The city received the FCT
grant in September, only to
learn earlier this month that
the Legislature froze the
Florida Forever property-
purchase program in a
budget-cutting move. Last
week, Gov. Charlie Crist ve-
toed the legislation, once
again freeing up the money.
Organizers are awaiting
results of two state ap-
praisals before negotiations
continue on the property.
Meanwhile, the grant re-
quires a $2.7 million local
match and fundraising con-
tinues. The Felburn Foun-
dation donated $2 million;
funds are dedicated by the
Citrus County Tourist Devel-
opment Council and Crystal
River City Council.
The city's inaugural Stone
Crab Jam festival, sponsored
by the Kings Bay Rotary
Club, netted $35,000 for' the
effort. Two weeks ago, Mayor

First Presbyterian Church of
Inverness. "She always has a
smile to give to others who
need a smile," Foley wrote..
Chris Martin of Citrus
Springs nominated Sheriff
Jeff Dawsy. "The sheriff had
devoted so much of himself to
make our community a better
- and safer place to live,"
Martin wrote.
Gene Zuelch of Beverly
Hills nominated Chester
Scott, who volunteers for the
Beverly Hills Surveillance
Unit, Homosassa Wildlife
State Park and Beverly Hills
Fishing Club. He goes to nurs-
ing homes and senior centers
to entertain people with his
accordion and music.
A friend nominated
Arlyn Sukut for his caring,
selfless nature. Sukut is ac-
tive in church, Fellowship of
Christian Athletes, Gideons
and the Retired Teachers As-
sociation.
Robert Deck, comman-
dant of the Marine Corps
League 819, nominated Paul
Pilny, who heads the Toys for
Tots drive in Citrus County.
"All in all, between children,
parents and grandparents, he
has probably affected over 25
percent of Citrus County res-
idents with his unselfish ac-
tions," Deck wrote.

Ron Kitchen presented a
key to the city to event chair-
woman Lisa Vandeboe.
About $170,000 must still
be raised.
Both Blue-McLean and
Houston said the community
support is overwhelming, es-
pecially during these eco-
nomic times.
"You cultivate donors. You
don't walk up to someone
and ask for a million dol-
lars," Blue-McLean said.
Blue-McLean, asked what
Houston brings to the effort,
said: "His ability to keep a
cool head, an even approach
to it all. He is very profes-
sional about all of this."
Houston, asked the same
question of Blue-McLean,
said: "She has the enthusi-
asm and perseverance.. She
has a vision of what this
property could be. It was not
going to fail. Whatever
needed to happen, would
happen."

Let it snow


MARION HOLDEN/Special to the Chronicle
Grace Holden and her grandparents, Marion and
Wayne Holden, traveled to Grand Haven, Mich., to
visit her great-grandparents during the Christmas sea-
son. Although Grace did not see the snow fall, she
was thrilled to see the mound of snow that was
pushed aside by residents living nearby. Grace turned
5 on Jan. 2. She plans to visit her great-grandparents
again next year, so she will be able to see some soft
glistening fresh white snow.

D during the past holiday season, Sue and
I went to a lot of cocktail parties and
dinners. It's great to be in demand,
and, thank goodness, Sue let me join her at a
.lot of them. It's taken years, but I now know
many of the rules of etiquette -
which fork to use, not to drink out
of the finger bowl, and the differ-
ence between a sleeve and a nap-
kin.
One guideline for a good dinner
party used to be that you do not let
a husband and wife sit together.
The rationale being that, since they
see each other all the time, sepa-
rating them makes things more in-
teresting for them and other
guests. Itgives everyone something
to talk about on the drive home. MUi
Obviously, you don't want to be
too strict about these kinds of things after
all, it's a party, not a spelling bee. Some cou-
___ ples should stay together, some should use
* their sleeves. It makes the rest of us feel bet-
b M ter. But Sue did get me into one party that
could have used stricter etiquette. Our host-
ess seemed to think eating arrangements
should be human, dog, human, dog, dog, dog,
0 ft** human instead of man, woman, man, woman.
- - When her biggest dog, Tiny, passed by the
-- b buffet table, licking most of the food as it
..* R -. -, passed by, our hostess must have caught my
.. -- look of dismay.
S "Tiny's tongue is cleaner than a human's,"
... she said in my direction. If she meant that as
- comfort, she failed. Just because it's cleaner
- than my tongue doesn't mean it's clean. It's like
S- saying your broom is cleaner than my tooth-
S- brush. I still wouldn't brush my teeth with it
S- I'm not trying to sound anti-pet. I have pets
myself and'they're a big part of our dysfunc-
S* - - tional family. I don't hold them to human
** standards, even extraordinarily low human
S- standards. But shouldn't the hostess have
*- stepped in? Or does she consider dog slather
_. -. a condiment?

cheeses, olives and salami. How did I know
that was the first time the dog had licked the
food? How did I know that he hadn't licked
everything before we arrived and once again
while we were hanging up our coats. A few
other people started looking for
table tops and coffee tables to put
down their plates. Now, who does-
n't have funny family stories of the
family cat or dog found nibbling on
the Christmas turkey at least I
hope you do I'd hate to think
we're the only ones that ever hap-
pened to. But still, I'd seen the dog
do it and that made all the differ-
ence. If he had licked all the food
M out in the kitchen where I couldn't
see it, I'd have finished my plate
.LEN and gone back for seconds.
All evening I watched the waist-
high dog stalk the buffet table. Sometimes,
when his nose went over the edge, a guest
would haul him back and wag a finger in his
nose and shamed, the dog would start eating
off the abandoned plates of guests that had
lost their appetite.
"Don't they ever feed him," Bill said as he
watched the dog lick a plateful of cocktail
sausages off someone's plate in one big slurp.
"His name's Tiny," I said. We were both at
the bar getting loopy from drinking red wine
on an empty stomach, but we both figured
Tiny couldn't get much of its tongue into a
wine bottle. We sure weren't going to taste the
punch in the big bowl. Who knew where it
had been? Bill and I watched newcomers ap-
proach the buffet table and load up. Should
we tell them? Why spoil their fun?
On the way home, I was about to tell Sue,
who had been on the other side of the room
all night, about Tiny when she said, "Wasn't
that ham great? Some people know how to do
a party right"

BGC seeks mentors to work with students


Special to the Chronicle

Have you ever thought
about becoming a mentor but
you weren't really sure how
to go about it? It's not hard to
do. Many people, without
knowing it, are highly quali-
fied to do the job.
A mentor is a caring, adult
friend who devotes time to a
young person. Although men-
tors can fill any number of


different roles, all mentors
have the same goal in com-
mon: to help young people
achieve their potential and
discover their strengths. All it
takes to become a mentor is
to be a caring adult who is
committed, responsible and a
good listener. You'll find that
mentoring can be one of the
most satisfying and reward-
ing experiences you'll ever
have.


A mentor may help a young
person:
Plan a project for school;
Set career goals and start
taking steps to realize them;
Make healthy choices
about day-to-day life, from
food to exercise and beyond;
Think through & problem
at home or school.
Mentoring is one of many
volunteer opportunities at
Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus


County. You may work at any
of three convenient locations
around the county, on a
schedule you decide, on
things you are the most com-
fortable doing, as a team with
trained professional staff.
You will truly know you are
making a difference for the
future. To find out more, call
Robert DeSimone, Ameri-
Corps VISTA volunteer, at
527-5973.

Dupler, Branch,



Citrus girls



qualify for state



weightlifting


LARRY BUGG
For the Chronicle

BELLEVIEW Summer
Dupler may have found a
new way to beat the flu.
In her case, she had to
sweat out the Belleview State
Qualifying Sectional Meet
Saturday at Belleview High
School.
Fortunately for the
Lecanto High senior, she was
tough enough to win her 129-
pound weight class.
She had a 135-pound lift in
both the bench press and the
clean and jerk That gave her
a 270-pound total and means
she will compete at the 2009
FHSAA State Girls
Weightlifting Meet Feb. 14 at
New Port Richey River
Ridge High School.
"I am always competing
against myself to get my per-
sonal best," said Dupler.
It was mind over matter for
Dupler and other lifters.
"We have four or five kids
down with the flu," said
Lecanto High coach Bob
LeCours. "Summer did what
I expected. I still think she
has some left in the tank I
think she played it consistent
and smart I'm pretty happy
with her performance. She
looked good in her bench
press. She looked good in her
clean and jerk"
This wasn't an easy meet
for Beca Branch. The Crystal
River High senior was sec-
ond in the 101-pound class.
She had a 100-pound bench
and a 105-pound clean and
jerk for a 205-pound total.
Branch literally had to
sweat out this effort
'"All season, I have been
lifting 110 and I realized that
if I didn't bump down a
weight class, I wasn't going to
make it," said Branch. "I
couldn't leave my senior year
not making it I am very re-
Slieved, excited. I am going to
work crazy hard to bump up
my total.
"It wasn't my best I had to
lose four pounds. I weighed
in at 100.8 pounds. I run,
sauna, sweat it out, eat a lot of
protein. It was the toughest to
qualify. I haven't been able to
work out as hard as I could."
"To finish second is good,"
said Crystal River coach
George Arscott. "You have to
be proud of her."
Like Dupler, Citrus High's
Jessica Goodfellow was tops
in her class. She won the 169-
pound class with a 145-pound
bench, a 140-pound clean and
jerk and a 285-pound total.
"I wish I would have done my
third lift," she said. "I did 140
before. I am'surprised. I am
happy to go to state.
"I have a great team. They
are very supportive. I don't
think I would have made it
there if it weren't for them."
Citrus High is taking three


girls and this is a feat for the
Inverness school.
"We are real excited," said
Citrus assistant coach Tia
Nelson. "Our girls have really
worked hard this year. We are
really happy with their re-
sults. We are not a bunch of
seniors. Overall, we have a
good group of girls for a cou-
ple of years."
Citrus High's Karli Payne
was third in the 183-pound
class. She had 125-pound
bench and a 115-pound clean
and jerk for a 240-pound
total.
"I'm a senior," Payne said.
"It's a good way to end my
senior year. I pulled through
and I am so happy. Both my
lifts were personal bests."
Citrus coach Doug Paton
was happy for Payne.
"I'm so happy for her,"
Paton said. "She lost a lot of
weight from last year."
Citrus High's Ali Rawls
won the unlimited. She had a
170-pound bench, a 150-
pound clean and jerk and a
320-pound total.
This was a real thrill for
Rawls..
"I am speechless,' she said.
"The 320-pound bench is my
best. I was very nervous. I
was so scared. This is my first
time going (to state)."
The three top qualifiers in
each weight class will com-
pete in the state meet Feb. 14
at New Port Richey River .
Ridge High Sehool.

Ex-Lion Gordy,
union leader, dies
John Gordy, a former Detroit
Lions lineman who led the NFL
players' union in 1968 when it
negotiated the league's first col-
lective bargaining agreement,
has died. He was 73.
Gordy died Friday from com-
plications of pancreatic cancer at
UC Irvine Medical Center in Or-
ange, Calif., his wife, Betty, said.
A star offensive lineman at
the University of Tennessee in
the 1950s, Gordy was picked
by the Lions in the second


round of the 1957 NFL draft. He.
started at right guard his rookie
season, when the Lions won
the NFL championship their last
league title.
By 1968 he was a seasoned
veteran and president of the
NFL Players Association, which,
he had helped found. Gordy led
the union's efforts to press the
league's owners on a slate of
demands, including'higher mini-
mum salaries for veterans and
rookies, bigger paychecks for
exhibition games, independent
arbitration and a greater contri-
bution to the pension fund.
Knight ejected in
Texas Tech loss
LUBBOCK, Texas -Texas
Tech coach Pat Knight was
ejected after running onto the
court twice to protest a call in the
Red Raiders' 82-69 loss to Ne-
braska on Saturday night.
With about nine minutes re-
maining in the game, Knight
erupted off the bench and
sprinted across the floor when
Alan Voskuil was called for a
foul.
His assistants pulled him away
and led him off the floor. A few
seconds later, Knight ran back to
midcourt to scream at officials
again and was thrown out.
Knight is the son of the fa-
mously volatile Bob Knight, the
all-time winningest men's major
college coach with 902 victories.

i


GARY O'CONNELL
Special to the Chronicle
IMAGINE, IF YOU WILL, A WORLD
free of cell phones. e-mails, televisiohns
and radios. A simpler time for sure. The
great communication device of the era was the
local newspaper. There you would find things
going on in your community such as who was
visiting, who was putting a new roof on their
home, the time and place of the monthly
church picnic, who was getting married, who
had died, who had been born and the list goes
on. The local newspaper was truly something
you could not get along without. Everyone who
could afford the subscription price of$1.50 per
year for52 issues was in the know. Those lucky
people had access to all happenings in town
and surrounding areas. This communication
device kept citizens informed on all things rel-
evant to their everyday lives. Definitely a
must-read for the times!
One particular part ofthe local newspaper
was the printing of the Board of Citrus
County Commission meetings These meet-
ings were hand-scribed by those with good
penmanship. Since there was only one offi-
cial newspaper at the official county seat in
Mannfield, that newspaper had the honor of
producing the minutes of those early Board
meetings. That first newspaper was called
The Citrus County Star. The printer of the
Star was paid $10 per month to print those
valuable minutes. This was -a lot of money
during those times. This information is still
in existence today in the official minutes
book at the old courthouse in Inverness. All
payroll expenses are listed each month for
not only this advertising expense but many


others such as prison expenses, school board
expenses and building expenses for the first
courthouse in Inverness. This was the old
Victorian-style courthouse built in the 1890s
which no longer exists. All newspapers dur-
ing that time relied upon printing other
things such as posters, signs for businesses
and all other items fit to print. They were pri-
marily print shops that as a sideline also
printed the local newspaper. The revenues
derived from these early newspapers were
just a small part of their profits during those
times. When other newspapers began to crop
up in the county, the printing of the official
minutes became an honor as well as a good
source of income each month. Competition
soon became fierce between these early
newspapers.
The year was 1887, the month was June.
June 2, to be exact This was when Sen. Austin
S. Mar., along with Florida. Gov. E.A. Perry
divided up the huge county of Hernando into
what is now known as Pasco, Hernando and
Citrus. Also that year. a county seat was
needed, which led to the founding of Mann-
field, named in honor of Mann, who was in-
strumental in the formation of Citrus County.
Mann lived in Mannfield for a short time and
then purchased more than 300 acres from Mr.
Alfred Tompkins on June 17,1886. Mann paid
$5,840 for this acreage located around
Pritchard Island at the entry ofGospel Island.
Tompkins was the founder of Tompkinsville
on March 10, 1887, which later became the city
of Inverness on Sept 20, 1889. The county paid
Tompkins $2,000 for the property and the
name change. Tompkins would live to the ripe

is past
in the next several decades.
My first inauguration expe-
rience was Richard Nixon's
in 1968.1 I was 33 years old and
had just been elected to Con-
gress. I had been sworn in in
early January and the next*
thing I knew on Jan. 20,1 I was
walking over from the House
Chamber to take my seat as a
member of the House of Rep-
resentatives, on the east side
of the Capit6l, only 50 feet
from where Richard Nixon
was being sworn in.
See FREY/Page C3


Memories of inauguration


I was asked on a recent
public radio show to talk
about some memories of
inaugurations I have at-
* tended since 1968, both the
highs and the lows.
To begin with, it is impossi-
ble to have a low about the in-
auguration of a president of
the United States. It is a cele-
bration of our system, of our
Declaration of Independ-
ence, and our Constitution.
How can one not stop and
wonder in amazement when
they see the orderly and peace-
ful transfer of power The most


powerful person in the world with all the pomp, ceremony
sits in the stands, and responsibilities

Americans the right to vote.
The question of equal op-
portunity for all was resolved
by this election of our first
black president What a mes-
sage this sends out to people
of all races and backgrounds
in our country and through-
out the world. The Statue of
Liberty has a big smile on her
face; another barrier has
been crossed. The last and
final barrier will be the elec-
tion of a woman president,
which I believe will happen


Secrets


revealed
W while I was present at
my birth, I can't
truthfully say I re-
member a lot about it
This past week my mother
let out a secret about that day
more than 55 years ago when
I came into this world.
She never paid the pedia-
trician.
Apparently, 'the pediatri-
cian wasn't around when I
was born and my mother de-
termined I was just fine. So in*
her mind, the pediatrician
didn't provide a service.
When the $25 bill came for
his role in my birth,; my
mother scratched through it
and sent it back
My mother raised seven
children, so I imagine she
recognized that I had all the
appropriate body parts.
But there's still a $25 out-
standing bill for my birth.
I wasn't paid for I wasn't
even out of the hospital and I
already had a debt attached
to my nanie.
Another birth I didn't know
much about until a week or
two ago was the birth of the
Chronicle. We thought this
newspaper began back in the
1880s when Citrus County
was hacked out of a piece of a
, much.', larger. ,Hermando
County.

One never

knows what

comes next
he past several days
have brought a strange
assortment of stuff,
some perhapsof public inter-
est and some just personal
notables in my daily life.
One thing of public inter-
est was an e-mail forwarded
to me about suspicious be-
havior by a man observing
children playing soccer at
Holden Park in Inverness.
The situation' sounds
.creepy and something note- *
worthy for parents and chil-
dren, evefi if there's no proof
of criminal wrongdoing at
this time.
Here are excerpts from the
e-mail, edited to protect awk-
wardness for anyone:
I wanted to send this out to
everyone and please ask you
to forward it to everyone you
know. Especially ifyour child
plays soccer at Holden Park
SYesterday, during a game
(a child) took a gut shot with
a ball and had to take a
break from the game. This
was no big deal. I went to
check on him and there was
a ... man standing behind
the bench. I did not know
him, but assumed he must
be with (the) coach. He said
something to me about (the
boy) being okay. I didn't re-
spond, but checked on (the
boy) and he said he was okay
so I went and sat back down.
After the game, the ref asked
the man who his child was and
the man responded "no team,
no child."He then took off

gone beyond the call of duty.
The effort has become an ob-
ession with them.
Three Sisters -is a world-fa-
mous tourist destination off a
side canal or King's Bay in
Crystal River. The three glori-
ous springs p imp millions of
gallons of wat r into the Citrus
.CounfLi ecosystemm each and
every day.
It became evident in late 20.06
that the, property around the
springs was destined to become
a high-density residential devel-
opinent. If that development
happened, Three Sisters would
never have been the same.
Lace Blue-McLean is presi-
dent of the board of the Friends
of the Chassahowitzka National
Wildlife Refuge and Andy Hous-
ton is the city manager of Crys-
tal River. Together working
with dozens of other activists -
they came together and created
a plan to raise the funds to pur-
chase the property for a public
purpose and save it from devel-
opment.
First they convinced the city of
Crystal River'to take the lead on
the project and to allocate
$100,000 to support the effort.
Then the county Tourist Devel-
opment Council came up with
another $100,000. Soon, public
events were planned all over the
county as folks wanted to play a
role in saving Three Sisters.
. Dr. K.C'. Nayfield led the Crys-
tal River Rotary Club in its effort
to raise $25,000 for Three Sis-
ters. Then Realtor Lisa VanDe-
boe created the Stone Crab Jam
festival and raised another
$35,000.
Hundreds of citizens began to
write their own checks to sup-
,port the effort.
But the heavy lifting was going
to be up to government organi-
zations that had to be convinced
that saving Three Sisters was a
unique opportunity to preserve
a special part of Florida.

of the Year recipients passed
away during the last year. Jean
Grant, the head of the county
fair and a former county com-
missioner, won the honor in
2006. She passed away in
December.,
Dave Paftillo of Inverness won
the recognition in 1994 for his ef-
forts to begin the restoration of
downtown Inverness. Dave also
passed away.
And Tom Franklin won the
award in 1985 as a member of
the advisory board that devel-
oped the county's first compre-
hensive plan. Tom was running
for the county commission in
2008 when he died suddenly
from a hearth attack.
We remember each of them
with fondness and appreciation
for what they did for Citrus
County.

Reduce the taxes
I'm calling about the article, "Re-
ducing taxable value on
JND property." It looks like there
was a 15 percent reduction
that would bring the prop-
erty to a true market value
vs. the inflated market value
of that piece of property. I
think that should be across
the board for all of the
a county, thereby putting us
\579 all at a true market value.
Reduction of our real estate
taxes by 15 percent would
be greatly appreciated. I'd like that to
be considered.

Proper display
In the Jan. 29 issue of the Citrus
County Chronicle, on the front
page, is a huge photograph of "Old
Glory fluttering' the United
States of America flag in old Ho-
posassa, with the headline:
9Proudly she waves."
This article and photograph I ap-
preciate, and it brought to mind a
letter that my attorney sent to the
city of Inverness review panel as to
the display of the U.S. flag at the Oak
Ridge Cemetery that the city runs.
The. letter that my attorney sent to
the city of Inverness explains that I
favor a policy that would allow
American flags to remain and be
placed on cemetery property as long
as they are placed in such a way as
not to disrupt appropriate mainte-
nance activities of cemetery person-
nel. I do feel that we should not be
deprived of our right to display the
U.S. flag on cemetery grounds and*
gravesites. We should be allowed to
display U.S. flags all year long, as a
matter of pride and respect to our
fallen heroes with only the afore-
mentioned restriction.
To the city of Inverness and the
Special Review Committee of the
Cemetery Ordinance, regarding the
Oakridge Cemetery or any other
area of the city of Inverness: We
must not restrict the proper place-
ment of the of the flag of the United
States of America and for that mat-
ter, while we are at it the flag of
the state of Florida. You are tread-
ing on very sacred ground and there
is a reason for the motto about the
U.S flag, "Don't Tread on Me!"
The American flag is representa-
tive of our constitutional guarantees
of life, liberty and the pursuit of
happiness. The freedoms we enjoy
and which have been defended by
many of those buried at the Oak
Ridge Cemetery must include the

Speaking out
On this 36th anniversary of Roe
v. Wade, excluding the 3 percent to
7 percent of abortions relating to
rape, incest, health of the mother
and fetal handicap, I wish to ad-
dress the 93 percent to 97 percent
of abortions used as a means of


birth control or ridding a mother -
of unwanted pregnancies. The first
issue, the 3 percent to 7 percent,
requires wisdom beyond my know-
ing and a lot of personal interven-
tion; the 93 percent to 97 percent
is wrong and is the taking of a
voiceless human life.
To quote from'Abortion: The
Silent Holocaust," "The greatest gift
of God is the gift of life; the greatest
sin of humanity is to return that gift
ungratefully and unopened."
The U.S. Declaration of Inde-
pendence states: "We hold these
truths to be self-evident that all
men are created equal, that they
are endowed by their Creator with
certain unalienable rights, that
among these are life, liberty and
the pursuit of happiness." In Roe v.
Wade the court has ruled that the
fetus, which cannot speak for it-
self, is not legally a person and
therefore has no right to life under
the 14th Amendment. To me, this is
nonsense, since we all start out life
as a fetus.
Dr Nathanson in a 1974 editorial
for The New England Journal of.
Medicine titled "Deeper Into Abor-
tion" wrote: "..I am deeply troubled
by my own increasing certainty that
I had, in fact, presided over 60,000
deaths. There is no longer serious
doubt in my mind that human life
exists within the womb, from the
very onset of pregnancy"
Jesus said: "Whatever you do to
the least of my children you do
unto me." Mother Theresa pointed
out that "Abortion is the greatest
destroyer of peace today"
Please speak out: "It all seemed
so wrong, I said to myself, some-
body ought to do something about
this, then I realized I am some-
body" -Anonymous.

Heroes: US Airways Flight 1549 and Air Florida


n Thursday, Jan. 15,
O* -2009, US Airways pilot
Chesley B. Sullen-
berger III was successful in
guiding Fight 1549 to a splash
landing in the Hudson River,
saving all 155 souls onboard.
A news article I read made
reference to a flight which
had fallen into the Potomac
almost precisely 27 years be-
fore. Sullenberger has been
hailed as a hero, and right-
fully so. He was properly
trained and prepared to han-
dle the situation, and handle
it he did. But on.January 13,
1982, Air Florida 90 had a
hero of a different sort, a pas-
senger who sacrificed his life
to help save lives of others.
Jan. 14, 1982, was a cold,


miserable morning in Talla-
hassee. We found ourselves
contending with ice, sleet
and a little snow. I'd read in
the morning paper that a
plane bound from Washing-
ton to Tampa had crashed
into the icy Potomac the pre-
vious afternoon. As I sat at
my desk in the bank where I
then worked, the phone rang.
The voice on the other end
of the line quivered, "Fred,
this is Bruce. Arland went
down on the Air Florida
flight yesterday. He wasn't a
survivor. I thought someone
should tell you."
The caller had been Bruce

bank examinations for the

began to detail the saga of a

had survived the crash and it

old age of 85. He died in July
1919. He lived to see many
changes in the town that once
bore his name.
During the time between 1887
and 1889, there was only one
known newspaper for the area.
That was the Star, which first
published orn Jan. 14, 1888. A
complete original copy of this
first issue is still available for
viewing at the old courthouse in
Inverness. On June 5, 1890, a sec-
ond publication was started in
Citrus County. This new newspa-
per was called The Phosphate
Field. This publication was first
established by Albert M.
Williamson. Williamson was
owner and editor The competi-
tion soon grew between the two
publications. The center of this
competition was the honor to
print the minutes of the commis-
sion meetings each month. On
record at one of the commission
meetings is an argument over
the rights to print the commis-
sion minutes, from Williamson.
He argued that since the county
seat was moved from Marnnfield
to its current location in Inver-
ness in April of 1891, and that his
newspaper was the only news-
paper printed in Inverness, that
his and only his publication
should have the rights to print
the official minutes of commis-
sion meetings. The Board of
Commissioners stated that they
had a legal obligation with a cur-
rent contract with the Star that
would be honored. They decided
after that to take bids on the
rights to print the minutes each
year thereafter. Williamson lost
that first battle but placed his
bid for the Phosphate Field to
gain the printing of the minutes
the following year of 1892. He
came before the Board of Citrus
County Commissioners with his
bid. Williamson, along with rival
George E. Niles, the publisher of
the Star, came to the Commis-
sion meeting to give their bids.


During the time between 1887 and 1889,
there was only one known newspaper for the
area. That was the Star, which first published.
on Jan. 14, 1888. A complete original copy
of this first issue is still available for viewing
at the old courthouse in Inverness.


This bid was very historic! Both
newspapers were contemplating
merging their newspapers into
one. The bid was as follows: If
they merge their publications
into one, their bid would be $120
for the year or $10 monthly. If
they decide to stay separate
newspapers, they would both
print the minute at a cost of $140
or $70 for each publication. As it
turns out, the two publications
merged, with Williamson acting
as editor of this new publication,
called the South Floridian. We
know this from payroll records
of the County Commission.
Williamson was paid $10 each
month, which was listed as an
advertising expense for printing,
the commission meeting min-
utes and tax records that year.
In September of 1893, C.S.
Warnock of the South Floridian
got the bid to print the minutes of
the board meetings for 1894. The
following year, on Sept 3, 1894,
sealed bids were submitted to the
county commission. The first bid
was from a new publishing com-
pany called The Citrus County
Publishing Company. This bid
was from WK Jackson, propri-
etor, president and manager of
the Citrus County Publishing
Company, which produced the
Citrus County Chronicle. The
Chronicle first published its
newspaper on Aug. 8, 1894. Al-
though there is no original copy
of the first issue of the Chronicle
on file, I found the oldest Chron-
icle on file at the old courthouse,
which is from Oct 31, 1895. This
issue has valuable masthead in-
formation on it the volume
number and issue number With
a volume number of 2 and issue
number of 13, it was easy to es-


tablish the exact date of the first
issue of the Chronicle. It was
once thought the Chronicle was
started by Williamson. We now
know this is incorrect from the
original minutes of the Citrus
County Board of Commissioners.
Williamson placed his bid in,
also. Williamson was still with the
South Floridian as editor, so the.
records clearly show he bid
against the Chronicle in 1894.
The commissioners voted, that
both publications would receive
the rights to print the minutes
due to the fact that both publica-
tions offered to do this for free!
Without these valuable min-
utes from the commission meet-
ings I would not have been able
to find the accurate history of
the early newspapers in Citrus
County. Mystery now solved!
On Sept. 2, 1895, Chronicle ed-
itor J.E Sherwood bid for the
right to publish the commission
meeting minutes for 1896. Sher-
wood wanted $6.50 per month
and the board accepted the bid.
No other bid was submitted,
leading me to believe that the
Chronicle had no competition. I
could find no other information
on the South Floridian. This was
the last known bidding process
from the, commission of this
early era in Citrus County his-
tory. It appears the Chronicle
had become the official publica-
tion of Citrus County and re-
mains so to this day.. The citizens
of Citrus County should be grate-
ful for all the information the
Chronicle has provided to them
since that first Thursday morn-
ing on Aug. 8, 1894. That's 114
years of great history reported,
and still counting .. .long live the
Citrus County Chronicle!


Where's the accountability?

A good example of what has hap-
pened to the average ratepayer
for electricity provided by
Progress Energy is found in our own
most recent electric bill. As a family, we
have been trying to conserve energy,
and our electric consump-
tion was lower this past
billing period compared to
the same time period a year
ago, yet our bill reflected a -,
26.7 percent increase. Esti-
mates for electric rate in- .
creases for the average
ratepayer range between 25 .
to 31 percent. We recognize a
portion of the increase came Suzan ]
from an increase in fuel
costs, however, the remain- GU
der (and the bulk of the COL
charges) are attributable to
the preconstruction costs for the nu-
clear power plant. The estimated cost
for the new power plant is $16 billion..
To review general public reaction to
the increased electric charges I have
compiled the following:
There have been numerous letters to
the editor and Sound Offs published in
the Citrus County Chronicle, and the
ratepayers serviced by Progress Energy
are up in arms.
Ratepayers view what has happened
as patently unfair Terms like "taxation
without representation" are being used.
Petitions are being circulated and
signed by ratepayers in the areas serv-
iced by Progress Energy, demanding the
repeal of s366.93.
Expressions of outrage that this rate
hike couldn't have come at a worse eco-
nomic time for the ratepayers here in
Florida. In Citrus County the unem-
ployment rate is one of the highest in
the state, creating a huge increase in re-
quests for food and clothing assistance
from the local residents. In addition, it
should be noted, a large percentage of
our residents are retired, on fixed in-
come, and are struggling to pay this in-
crease as well. (Note: U.S. Sen. Bill
Nelson's office has confirmed a signifi-
cant increase in requests for assistance
for help in paying electric bills and pre-
scription costs.)
Questions are being raised as to
whether Progress Energy, a privately
owned corporation with stockholders,
made any efforts to secure .private fi-
nancing for these preconstruction costs.
If yes, why didn't they follow that course
of action, or, were they turned down? If
so, and they couldn't secure private fi-
nancing for these costs, why should the
ratepayers bear the risk and foot the
bill? If they made no effort to secure
private financing, then why not?
Significant incentives were provided
in the 2005 Energy Policy Act.enacted
by Congress providing loan guarantees
. and tax credits to be specifically pro-
vided to the first six power plants to be
built The proposed power plant in Levy
County qualifies for these incentives.
Has Progress Energy taken advan-
tage of these loan guarantees at the fed-
eral level, or did they only pursue the
preconstructionn cost recovery plan"
with our state lawmakers?
Progress Energy is a privately owned
corporation with stockholders, yet the
ratepayers are footing the bill and tak-
ing on the risk for a power plant that
may, or may not, be built; and if the plant
is not built, Progress Energy gets to keep
all the money they charged in increased
rates. Where is the accountability to the
ratepayer? An example of genuine frus-

I felt like I was dreaming.
This couldn't be happening to
me. I was afraid I would wake
up and this glorious moment
would be gone. In fact, I have
never really woken up, and
that feeling about our coun-
try, about the magnificence of
the occasion has never gone
away. To this day I can close
my eyes and still visualize
what it was like to look out
from the Capitol steps over
the thousands of people in at-
tendance and listen to
Nixon's speech.
Very few people in the
House knew my name. I was
a Republican in a Democrat-
ically-controlled .Congress,

gress. At that time I made a
vow that I would get to the


leadership of the House as
early as possible and be a
player, which I did.
There was a funny side to
the 1972 Nixon inaugural.
The weather was incredibly
chilly and we were not pre-
pared for it. We weren't pre-
pared for a flood of
constituents who came by the
office to get warm and eat We
had to race out and get soft
drinks, coffee, chips, etc., and
also start trying to find some
parade tickets.
After finding tickets for our
constituents, we decided to
go downtown to the viewing
stands. We bundled up the
best we could, we must have
looked like refugees from the
North Pole. My administra-
tive assistant, Oscar Juarez,
decided that he would drive
us. We had eight people in my

- The city of Washington in
1972 was like a city under
siege. The country had suf-
fered through the assassina-
tion of Martin Luther King
and Bobby Kennedy, had
seen demonstrations in col-
leges all over the country and
was deeply divided over the
issue of Vietnam. Many pro-
testers were in Washington
and you had to be careful


where you went.
Unfortunately, it was diffi-
cult to find what roads were
safe and what roads brought
you, into the middle of pro-
testers. Oscar made a wrong
turn and the next thing we
knew we were among a num-
ber of protesters who were
shouting at us in the car. I
feared the worst and wasn't
sure how we were going to
get out of the mess.
All of a sudden I heard
sirens coming from in front of


us and our car picked up
speed and the crowd parted.
We raced toward downtown
and the parade site at over 50
mph. What happened was
Oscar had seen a police es-
cort for the governor of Ala-
bama, George Wallace, and
decided what was good for
George Wallace was good for
Lou Frey.
We became part of Wal-
lace's entourage all the way
downtown. There were six
motorcycles, four new big
black cars and one old Ford.
Oscar finally broke away
from the caravan and we
found a place to park.
We ended up at a party at
the Hay-Adams Hotel, which
we weren't supposed to be,
but it was just delightful. One
of the heroes of World War II,
Joe Foss, a Medal of Honor
winner who shot down 26
Japanese aircraft, was in at-
tendance. He was elected


governor of South Dakota in
1955 and was commissioner
of the American Football
League from 1959 to 1966. He
joined our group and talked
with us about his exploits for
what seemed hours.
We were lucky that we
were able to get away from
the protesters. We were lucky
we were in an old car and not
a new luxurious black car We
were lucky that we were all
young, full of hope and en-
ergy. We managed to turn
what could have been a mis-
erable afternoon into a won-
derful lifelong memory.

authority our state government to enact
legislation enabling electric rate in-
creases to a private corporation with
stockholders, for preconstruction costs
for a power plant that may or may not
be built, and a service the ratepayers
may or may not receive.
Keeping all this in mind, I would like
suggest a few ideas I have that might
help remedy the current situation.
1. Legislation should be sponsored by
our lawmakers to revise s366.93, Chap-
ter 230; the law governing the shifting of
the costs to the ratepayer, to prohibit
the costs related to preconstruction of
nuclear/integrated gasification com-
bined cycle power plants from being
passed on to ratepayers prior to com-
pletion, activation, and electricity pro-
vided to the ratepayers. Payments
already made for the preconstruction
costs by the ratepayers: 1) Should be re-
imbursed; or 2) Should be applied to
the next billing period for the ratepay-
ers, as a credit toward their balance.
2. In addition, this law should be fur-
ther clarified to provide that precon-
struction costs for a new power plant,
incurred by an electric utility, be part of
the electric base rate charge increase at
the time such power plant is activated
and electric service is provided by the
power plant to the ratepayers.
3. In addition, this law should be re-
vised to provide for the following re-
quirements upon the electric utility:
The electric utility should be required,
to provide the ratepayers with the abil-
ity to plan in advance for the increased
costs associated with the construction
and activation of a new nuclear power
plant; the electric utility should be re-
quired to publish, and notify the
ratepayers the following information by
a date certain that will coincide with
the end of the current 2009 legislative
session.
This information should include, but
not be limited to: All projected and/or
estimated electric base rate increases
per 1,000 kilowatt hour including the
overall percentage increase antici-
pated, that the ratepayer can expect to
pay when the new power plant is acti-
vated and electric service is provided
by such power plant to the ratepayers.
The situation we find ourselves in
provides us a great opportunity to get
involved and let our wishes known, and,
at the same time, help our elected offi-
cials in Tallahassee craft the best laws
for all the people in Florida.

But they will echo President
Obama's warnings that our
economy is on the verge of
total failure, that the stimulus
is needed now and that de-
bate and disagreement would
be unacceptable partisan
politics. At the risk
of being called un-
patriotic, I will
point out a few of
the most troubling
parts.
The plan gives
$54 billion to gov-
ernment agencies
deemed (by the
m Dixon government!) as in-
itER effective or unable
uER to passan audit!
DES The fraud-laden,
ineffective Medi-
caid program gets an infusion
of $81 billion and is "lem-
porarily" expanded to more
citizens including some with
substantial assets. Govern-
ment control of health care is


increased, and states that ex-
panded coverage are re-
warded with more funds. A
new agency is created to de-
termine what health care is
"cost effective" for us.
Billions in "tax cuts" for
low earners (and non-earn-
ers!) will have no more effect
on the economy than did
Bush's rebates last year. Like-
wise the temporary tax cuts
for businesses.
How about $1 billion sub-
sidy for bankrupt railroad
Amtrak and several billions
for big city (Democrat) may-
ors to spend on mass transit?
$2 billion to subsidize child-
care? $400. million to re-
search global warming? (Al
Gore says the science is "set-
tled.") What about $50 million
additional for the National
Endowment for the Arts?
This is the group best known
for sponsoring the "piss
Christ" exhibit- in NYC.


There is much more in this
bucket of "slop!"
Check it out. If you pay
taxes, you'll not like what you
find. Blame corrupt Republi-
can politicians for these con-
sequences of the Democratic
takeover.

Prayer for Joe
It was nearly 16 years ago during the
height of the "no name" storm of'93. There
was over 2 feet of water in my parents' Bunts
Point home. My 74-year-old mother was an
invalid on oxygen and my 79-year-old father
had undergone surgery for six bypasses a
month and a half earlier. My aunt was living
with them to help with:their care. In the car-
port, water was up to the hood of their car
but it did not matter because the water on
the road was even deeper. The phone was
out so they could not call for help.
Then they heard a voice at their back door.
It was their neighbor, Joe Strykowski. The
water was even deeper in Joe's house. Joe,
Donna Corey and Donna's daughter were
placing things up out of the water when they
realized that my parents and aunt had not left.
The three of them immediately stopped'
what they were doing and got into Joe's inflat-
able Zodiac boat and went to my parent's
house. Joe; Donna and Donna's daughter care-
fully placed my parents and aunt into the boat
and the six of them went by water to the fire
station in Crystal River From there, they were
evacuated by dump truck to higher ground
and then by school bus to the shelter at Rock
Crusher Elementary, where we found them.
Joe lost many records and other things to
the rising water because he stopped to help
my parents. Had he not done so, I believe
,my parents would have died. I will always
remember his selfless act I pray that he will
be found safe and alive.

Need true picture
One of the main concerns of our commis-
sioners seems to be lowering impact fees.
While I agree commercial fees need adjust-
ment, why the rush to include houses. The
current glut of homes should be dimin-
ished first before constructing more. When
we decided to build our home in Citrus
Springs the impact fees, although substan-
tial, didn't deter us, since home prices
were reasonable. I think the same is true
today.
As a matter of fact, I was happy to hear
that the impact fees would contribute to in-
frastructure costs needed while the county
was growing. However, the amount of taxes
we paid on our first year's bill was three
times that which was quoted initially. With-
out impact fees, it would probably have
been higher.
The 6 cent gas tax was an issue during
the campaign and I ask the commissioners
to abolish it and save residents from addi-
tional tax and stimulate business for local
merchants. I, myself, use a lot of fuel which
I purchase in adjoining counties, because
they have lower prices. The other counties
must appreciate this.
The Chronicle gave roads a good grade.
Our roads in Citrus Springs are in need of
major repair. I guess looking at this prob-
lem from a distance things appear rosy.
How about polling residents in different
areas of our town to get a true picture?

afternoon planning meeting
with the editors where we

was stunned to learn of the
death of Billy Powell, the key-
boardist with the rock band
Lynyrd Skynyrd.
As a teenager in the 1970s,,
I first saw Skynyrd rocking
Boston, and last year I saw
the band play Gator Growl in


Gainesville., I've followed
them through the years and,
simply, I'm a big fan.
Imagine my surprise when,
a few years ago, my step-
daughter and now-son-in-law
let on that a close really
close friend of theirs is
Billy's son. I was instructed
not to engage the son in con-
versations about his dad, the
band, or anything remotely re-
lated, during the couple times
he's visited us in lovely Her-
nando. That lasted all of about
8 seconds. Before you could
say "Gimme Three Steps," I
had CDs out and was asking
questions and generally being
a pest He took it in stride.
I have a framed Lynyrd
Skynyrd guitar pick at home,,

stepdaughter Samantha. I
think I can speak for all
Skynyrd fans when I say the
world of rock won't be the
same without Billy Powell
hammering, out incredible
honky-tonk sounds on his
white piano.
M On a much lighter note,
we found the temperature at
which our home's central
heat is useless. We've had


some cold nights in the house
over the past couple ,of
weeks, and my neighbors are
probably wondering why I've
stapled tarps around the bot-
tom of our elevated porch. In
theory, it's to keep the cold
wind from blowing up
through, our 70-year-old
floors, but I don't think that's
done much good. Some might
think it looks tacky, too.
M One other household issue
arose this past week Our tap
water got super hot The next
day it wasn't hot at all. Sooner
or later, all homeowners learn
the lesson of hot water heaters
and thermostats.
M Beyond scalding hot
water, frigid inside temps, a
probable pervert at a park,
the reemergence of a conven-
ience store friend and the
death of an outstanding mu-
sician, there's not much more
to report. The world keeps
turning and one never knows
what's around the bend.

But the traditional story of
the Chi-onicle's history turns
out to be a little off the mark
And just like my mother
telling me she never paid the
doctor for my delivery, I had a
visitor come tell me that we
didn't know the whole story
about how the newspaper
was started.'
Gary O'Connell worked at
the Chronicle for many years
as an artist before he retired
arid began some publishing
efforts of his own. But he's
also worked with the Citrus
County Historical Society
and became intrigued about
the "Volume" and "Issue"
numbers we use on the front
page of the daily newspaper.
In fact, this last week in
Volume 121, Issue 28 we re-
ported that Gary's wife,
Becky O'Connell, was named
the Citrus County Teacher of
the Year. She has taught at In-
verness Primary School for
25 years and is a terrific


teacher.
When you look at the Vol-
ume 121, that signifies the
Chronicle is 121 years old.
That means the Chronicle
began publishing in 1888.
But Gary O'Connell did a
lot of work in recent weeks
and determined that the
starting date is not accurate.
The Chronicle actually
began publishing on Aug. 8,
1894. That means we are cur-
rently 114 years old and will
. be 115 on Aug. 8.
Gary's research is docu-
mented in this section of
today's newspaper. He went
back into the county commis-
sion records of the 1890s and
found out about when the
Chronicle first came on the
scene.
Now, in our defense, I did
not work for the Chronicle
'when it was first published.


to do it all over again.

The paper has changed
hands more than a dozen
times in those years and
there was at least one signifi-
cant fire that burned down
the newspaper's plant
Our internal history sug-
gested that the Chronicle
began back in the 1880s as
the Citrus County Star and
was published in the original
county seat of Mannfield. But
O'Connell, through some
good investigative work, de-
termined that the Chronicle
started up in the early 1890s
to compete against the Star.
The Chronicle was originally
tied to the city of Tomp-
kinsville the new county
seat that eventually became
known as Inverness.
So starting with today's
paper, we will set history
straight and change our des-
ignation to Volume 114, Issue


178. On Aug. 7, 2009, we will
hit Vol. 114, Issue 365 and on
the next day we will move to
Vol. 115, Issue 1.
And going forward, we will
try to keep that record
straight.
The best thing about
O'Connell's discovery is that
those of us at the Chronicle
did a poor job of celebrating
our 120th birthday. Now
we're going to have a chance
to do it all over again.
On Aug. 8, 2014, I will be
sure to invite you to the party.
And maybe I can track down
that pediatrician my mother
didn't pay and get him an in-
vitation.

Gerry's guffaws
I think your article about
genetics and gadgets by
Gerry Mulligan is really good.
It's the only laugh I get out of
this Chronicle, especially
about your file cabinet that
time. I was just laughing my
head off. You did an out-
standing job. Appreciate it,
Mr. Mulligan...You keep us
laughing. I'm telling you it
was great.
Stop means stop
This is a reminder to every-
one that stops signs mean
stop, no burning means no
burning of any kind, and
speed limits means do that
speed limit posted. All of
these can affect other peo-

burning, and stop means
stop, and please watch the
speed.
Recomended reading
Everyone should read the
article on page All in the

money going to come from?
There's enough foreclosures

So why don't the commis-

take a cut in pay and keep

ments back. That would
keep at least people working
instead of being out on un-

Q, I need help with a
constant problem. I'm
on my third bathroom
faucet in about five years. It
seems that my chrome bath-
room faucets develop corrosion
and the spouts look ugly and
dull long before the parts go. Is
there any-
thingthat can
be done to
delay this
process once
it begins? I .
keep trying to .
polish them
daily, but to
no avail. -
Charlie in Ed Del Grande
Texas ASK THE
-A- Sorry, PLUMBER
Charlie, but I
think some
bad decisions on your part may
be a big reason behind your
faucet problems. First, when
you buy a new faucet, I recom-
mend that you pay the. extra
money and invest in a high-end
faucet High-end faucets with a
well-known manufacturer's
name usuallywill offer several
types of quality finishes along
with attractive styling.
The faucets themselves are
made with heavy-duty materi-
als. and special finishing
processes that really stand the
test oftime. Some popular high-
end faucet finishes right now
are brushed chrome and
brushed nickel. The brushed
look can hide day-to-day finger-
prints and, even if it is years
old, can look like it's brand new

If you decide to purchase a new faucet, buy a high-end one with a
well-known manufacturer's name.


with little maintenance.
Inexpensive faucets, by com-
parison, are usually made with
plastics and lightweight materi-
als with a painted-on chrome
finish. The money you may save
upfront on a bargain faucet is
usually spent a couple years
later when you have to replace
it It looks like you are learning
this lesson the hard way.
I recommend that you look
for a new quality faucet with a
physical vapor deposition fin-
ish, which involves a multi-step
process. You probably need a
science degree to explain and
understand how this technol-
ogy works, so I won't attempt it.
What you need to know is that


once this type of finish is ap-
plied, it's practically indestruc-
tible.
Now, the second thing you
need to do is to stop polishing
your faucets so much. Regular
light wiping with a soft cloth is
all you should need. Constant
polishing with abrasives may
wear on a faucet's finish, rather
than help preserve it. This can
be a vicious cycle when a wear
spot shows up and it's mistaken
for a dull spot. Then, many
homeowners will aggressively
keep polishing that "dull spot,"
only to wear the finish com-
pletely off the faucet. Bottom

Most of these Silesian spice containers would probably sell
for between $5 to $20 apiece; the oil and vinegar cruet set might
fetch between $15 and $30. This weight-driven clock was
manufactured by the Gustav Becker Clock Company of Germany. Al-
though it has been restored, the changes wouldn't affect collector in-
terest. It might fetch as much as $2,000. .: These ceramic bird
figurines are probably made of Cloisonn6, a type of molded enamel.

sects that have been released to
control the scale. These prod-
ucts can be applied to scales on
the foliage and trunks of sago
palms. Several treatments over
a long period of time will likely
be necessary to control this
tenacious pest The scales also
attack the plants roots, so a root
drench is also recommended.
A buildup of dead scales can
provide a protective layer to the
live scales below. Dead scales


should be removed manually or
with a strong blast of water.
Highly-infested fronds can be
pruned off; however, do not re-
move more than one-third of the
fronds at any one time. Do not
dispose of the fronds with yard
waste because this can spread
the scale throughout the county.

Chickasaw plum, Prunus

as winter draws to a close in
February. The

flowers is
most notice-

edges and in dry hammocks. It
is also a popular garden speci-
men.
This native small tree ranges
from Central Florida north to
Delaware and west to Texas in
Zones 5 to 9. The shrubby,
densely branched tree tends to
sucker to form tangled colonies
of multi-stemmed thickets that
can prevent soil erosion.
They can grow to 20 feet tall.
Thicket size can be controlled
by annual mowing, if desired.
Thorns abound on twigs and

in sandy soils that are well
drained to moist and needs no
irrigation or fertilization after
establishment. Soil can be
slightly acid, pH 7.5 to alkaline,
pH 5. This plum can be planted
on the coastal plain because it's
mildly salt-tolerant. It flowers
best in full sun. It grows and
spreads rather quickly, but is
fairly 'short-lived, to about 50
years.

starting in February. Each has

birds. The fruit, a 1/2- to 1 1/4-
inch round drupe, is a yellow to
red plum relished by wildlife

Some wild plums contain

deadly in large doses. One taste

long. Topsides are shiny and a
nice shade of green. Leaf edges
or margins have tiny teeth. The
bark is reddish and mature
trunks can be attractively scaly.

grow naturally in similar condi-
tions with chickasaw plum in-

I planted a small chickasaw
plum on my back property line
10 years ago. Every February it
welcomes the approaching
spring. So far it hasn't wan-
dered. The birds and wildlife
eat every plum that ripens.
Chickasaw plum is as pretty
as its name and an excellent ad-
dition to a natural garden.

pruining


running is clearly one of
the key arboriculture
skills. Pruning, when
viewed from a health care per-
spective, can increase the vital-
ity of most trees.
Improper



and physical
require-
ments of the

sightly and THE
unhealthy ARBORIST
trees, as well
as dangerous
conditions for the surrounding
area.
So, as with all other mainte-
nance practices, a good thing
can go bad if done improperly.
Let's look at the vast array of
pruninggrecommendations and
highlight a few principles.
First, always prune with a
purpose in mind. Pruning can
be useful for many reasons, in-
cluding:
Opening up the tree for
better air and sunlight pene-
tration;
Improving plant structure
and appearance;
Removing hazards;
Controlling diseases and
pests;
* Reducing plant size and;
* Increasing fruit produc-


tion.
Done right, such pruning pro-
vides great benefits. Done
wrong, the solution creates an-
other problem.
There are a number of max-
ims when it comes to pruning,

Continued from Page E18

but take them all with a grain of
salt The old saying "you can


prune a tree any time the saw is
sharp" may be true when you
are talking about simply re-
moving dead branches, but if
you keep in mind the specific
purpose of the pruning, some
times may definitely be better


than others.
A number of research studies
indicate that pruning at the
time of planting should be min-
imized. Unpruned trees gener-
ally adapt faster than trees
pruned at the time of trans-
plant. A relatively small


amount of pruning done on a
young tree can lead to a more
structurally stable mature tree
that requires little pruning
later on.
