Greene: All coincidences


MIKE WRIGHT
mwright@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
Just a coincidence, Property Ap-
praiser Geoff Greene says.
Companies and individuals associ-
ated with Citrus Hills Investment
Properties donated $25,000 in cash
and services to Greene's successful
political campaign, according to elec-
tions records.
Citrus Hills is suing Greene's pred-
ecessor, Melanie Hensley, over the
denial of agricultural classifications
on hundreds of parcels going back to
2006. A ruling in Citrus Hills' favor


could cost taxpayers
at least $1 million,
court records show.
Greene said nei-
ther Citrus Hills gen- . .

Tamposi nor anyone

rus Hills ever men- Geoff
tioned the lawsuit or Greene

corporate backing from Florida and
New Hampshire.
"It never came up," Greene said.


The lawsuit, one of more than 20
tax-dispute lawsuits that Greene in-
herited when he took office in Janu-
ary, claims that Hensley wrongly
denied agricultural classifications on
vacant land where Tamposi says he
harvests trees for profit.
The case included about 50 parcels
in 2006, but ballooned to nearly 600
parcels in 2007 and 2008.
Tamposi paid the disputed taxes. In
2006, it amounted to about $1.7 mil-
lion. The exact amounts paid for 2007.
and this year have not been totaled by
either the property appraiser or Cit-,
Srus County Tax Collector's Office.
Tamposi is asking a judge to re-


store the agricultural classification,
which carries with it a substantial
property tax break He also is seeking
a refund for taxes paid on the dis-
puted parcels, records show.
Greene said the only thing he
knows about the lawsuit is what he
read in newspapers.
He said it never came up during
the campaign or after his victory in
November.
Avis Craig, who Greene hired in the
new position of director of public af-
fairs, spent 12 years as director of de-
velopment for Citrus Hills prior to
joining Greene.

MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle
The new Withiacoochee Gulf Preserve near Yankeetown offers visitors opportunities to learn about Flprida's fragile ecosys-
tem. This panoramic view is from a large, elevated platform on the preserve's property. The park officially opened yesterday.

Yankeetown preserve is by the people, for the people

Teenagers, politicians, environ-
mentalists, volunteers the
Withlacoochee Gulf Preserve
is a place the community built
The 413-acre park features estuar-
ine wild lands, salt marshes and
lakes, trails, boardwalk and a 30-foot
observation towerto take in vast land
from a bird's-eye view.
Kayakers can snake through water
trails that eventually lead to the Gulf
of Mexico.
Researchers can study the land in
hopes of contributing to preservation.
Animals leave their prints in the
mud as evidence of their existence.
Wild orchids can sometimes be
spotted from the trails.
Saturday, the Town of Yankeetown
debuted its largest park to the com-
munity with a grand opening event
and dedication ceremony.
"I think it's a fantastic accomplish-
ment, especially considering that this
just wasn't done by the town council.
The people who live in the town took
up interest," town councilmember
Larry Feldhusen said.

In 2001, the land was purchased for
$1.5 million after volunteers wrote for
grant money from the Florida Com-
munity Trust
With additional grants, volunteers
have put in about $600,000 worth of
improvements so far
They've added eco-friendly corn-
posting toilets, boardwalks, a docK
and the observation tower.

Friends of the Withlacoochee Gulf
Preserve President Ellen Klee can
partially credit her retirement in


Yankeetown to the park.
Klee moved to Yankeetown with
her husband Dick Henson about four
years ago from Stuait
The couple fell in love with the
area after visiting friends. Part of
their admiration was formed after a
tour of the preserve.
"We came out here and just were
awestruck," Klee said. 'Anyplace south
of here like this has been destroyed."

While the grand opening was this
weekend, the preserve has been open
the past few months.
Already the guest book is filling up
with park-goers from as far away as
Germany, New York, San Francisco,
Wisconsin, Canada and England.

Despite

rainfall

Citrus is

parched

CHRIS VAN ORMER
cvanormer

Chronicle
Recent rainfall has not
helped Citrus County break
the continuing drought that for
two years has affected all 16
counties of the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District, which is keeping
them on a water shortage alert
Citrus is among the 13 coun-
ties on orange alert, which
means severe water shortage.
River flows, aquifer and lake
levels remain significantly
below normal, the district
said. The county remains
under the district's severe
water shortage restrictions
approved by the district's gov-
erning board in January 2007.
District water restrictions
include limiting lawn water-
ing to a maximum of one'day
per week Residents aire
urged to continue conserving
water indoors and outdoors
of their homes and busi-
nesses. Residents should also
consider turning off their ir-
rigation systenrs this week
due to the recent rainfall, the
district advised.
Hillsborough, Pinellas and
Pasco counties are under the
district's extreme water
shortage restrictions. In addi-
tion to continuing to restrict
lawn watering to one.day per
week, many additional re-
strictions have been imposed
on those three counties.
During the cooler winter
months, the district also is urg-
ing residents to consider skip-
ping a week of lawn irrigation,
especially if it has just rained.
Lawns go dormant during the
winter months and don't need
as much water. With outdoor
irrigation accounting for as
much as- 50 percent of resi-
dential water usage, skipping
a week of water can result in a
significant water savings.
The current aquifer level
in the region has dropped by
one-tenth of a foot this past
week, from -1.31 feet to -1.41
feet, compared to -1.07 feet
last year. The normal range if
from zero to +4 feet
Rainfall measures have
been low, with 0.66 inches
from Jan. 1 to Feb. 4, com-
pared to a historic average
rainfall of 3.05 inches.
For more information
about watering restrictions,
contact your local utility or
visit the District's Web site at
WaterMatters. org/restrictions/.

Submariners honored


DAVE SIGLER/Chronicle
Congresswoman Ginny Brown-Waite presents R.G. Holden with certificates to his membership to the Holland Club. R.G. Holden, at age 97, is the old-
est member of the Holland Club an organization that honors submariners with more than 50 years. Holden was certified as a submariner in 1930. The
ceremony was at the U.S. Submariners Veterans Sturgeon Base.

'Pride runs deep 'for veterans who served on underwater vessels

Six military veterans who served on sub-
marines, three during World War II, were hon-
ored Saturday with plaques presented by U.S.
Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite, R-Brooksville.
Meeting at the American Legion Post 155 in
Crystal R iver U.S. Submarine Veterans, Stur-
. geon Base, Crystal River, gathered to honor the
six who qualified as submariners at least 50
years ago.
The oldest honoree, R.G. Holden, 97, of Flo-
ral City, qualified as a submariner in 1930.
The Sturgeon Base was organized nearly
eight years ago and was called Sturgeon in
honor of three U.S. submarines that have car-
ried the name. One of the base founders, Dale
Danielsen of Ocala, was present at the meeting.
"Pride runs deep" is the motto for the sub-
mariners, as they listened to a history of the
huge contribution submariners have made to
the nation's defense. During World War II in the
Pacific, U.S. submarines sunk 1,113 Japanese
merchant ships. Comprising less than 2 percent
of all naval personnel in the Pacific, the sub-
mariners accounted for 55 percent of all enemy
shipping sunk. Submariners also suffered the
highest rate loss of any group in the navy.
A regular ritual of the submariners is the

- "We honor the men lost in the current
month," said Vice Commander Reggie Clarke.
The Barbel went down Feb. 4, 1945, with 81
officers and men on board. The Shark was lost
to an enemy depth charge Feb. 11, 1942, with 59
officers and men on board. The Amberjack was
missing Feb. 16, 1943, losing 72 officers and
men. A Japanese carrier plane bomb took down
the Grayback on Feb. 27,1944, with 80 lives lost.
The Trout went down Feb. 29, 1944, with 79 on
board.
Commander Reggie Thurlow asked for all

group for members who have been designated

But the economic downturn

As for what he and his fam-

submarine to be formally commissioned by the
U.S. Navy.
Thurlow said he had checked with the na-
tional, Holland Club organization, and Holden,
at age, 97, was the oldest living member of the
club.
Introducing Brown-Waite, Thurlow said, "She
is the champion of veterans and spends many
hours making sure veterans get their benefits."
Thurlow introduced the three younger hon-
orees, calling them "boots."
"When you went to boot camp, 'boots' were
the youngest guys," he said.
Brown-Waite presented plaques to Forrest A.
Young, who qualified in 1959 and served on the
Odax; John H. McKee Jr., who qualified in 1959
and served on the Tirante; and Ruben R. Roth-
schild, who qualified in 1959 and served on the
Grampas.
With the remaining older men, each was pre-
sented with a second certificate.
Robert Englund, who qualified in 1941 and
served on the R12, retired from the Navy after
31 years as a commander.
In presenting awards to Holden, who served
on the R13, Brown-Waite said, "America is eter-

Much of the preserve's de-
velopment can be credited
to enthusiastic teenage vol-
unteers from Yankeetown
High School science teacher
Genie Sturtevant's classes.
Using grant money from
the Southwest Florida Water
Management District and
the Florida Recreational
Development Assistance
Program, Sturtevant's stu-
dents have helped get the
park ready for the public.
The students have blazed
trails, built information
kiosks, installed trail mark-
ers, added a butterfly gar-
den and are in the process of
building a bog garden.
"Organizing it sometimes
is a strain, but when you ac-
tually get out there with the
students in the environment
it makes teaching worth
doing," Sturtevant said.
The hands-on experience,
along with supplemented
lesson plans, have given her
science students a real live
look at ecosystems, water
supplies and the importance
of their environment.

The students aren't the
only ones learning at the
preserve.
University of Flornda'Pro-


* The preserve is open
daily from 9:30 a.m. to 3
p.m., including holidays,
and is at 1001 Old Rock
Road, Yankeetown.
To get there, take
U.S. 19 north into Inglis.
Turn left onto County
Road 40. Go down the
road about 3.3 miles
into Yankeetown. The
park is on the right.

fessor Jack Putz and his
graduate students are inter-
ested in using the land in a
study about Florida's
Coastal Forests.
"I'm really impressed with
what they've done. It's a liv-
ing classroom filled with
marshes, coastal hammocks.
It's beautiful, but there's a
melancholy angle to. it. as
well," Putz said.
Putz has been studying the
decline of coastal forests
and has found evidence that
supports the loss is due to
rising sea levels.
At the preserve, tree
stumps stand dead in plains
of sea grass. At one time, the
tree was able to live because
it could access fresh water.
Now, salt water is intruding.
Graduate student Drew
Joseph plans to use the topic
as part of her dissertation
for her Doctoral degree.
SThe project is in the be-
ginning stages, butwill focus


Special to the Chronicle
etown.
on studying how coastal
forests change over time in
Florida.
Her hypothesis is that
there is a direct correlation
between the decline of
coastal forests and rising sea
levels.
"My goal is to actually get
other groups involved in
tracking these changes in
the coastal forests," Joseph
said.
Called citizen science,
Joseph plans to contact
teachers and other groups to
help set up plots to study
along Florida's Gulf Coast.
The teachers would have ac-
cess to lesson plans regard-
ing the study and would
teach their students to track
and measure changes and
study data from other plots
and how it relates to sea lev-
els.
The UF team has gotten
lots of support from the pre-
serve's volunteers, Joseph'
said. Already, they allowed a
.plot to be set up at the pre-
serve to study the coastal
forests.
"They're. not scientists,
but they are really dedicated
to preserving the area,"
Joseph said.
As far as the preserve
goes, her favorite part is the
observation tower.
"You don't really see any-
thing manmade," Joseph
said. "It's just nature sur-
rounding you." -.' -

Craig also said she knows
nothing about the lawsuit or
the issues surrounding it
"I still don't know anything
about the case other than what's
in the newspaper," she said.
Craig vowed she would stay
away from the issue because of
her recent ties with Citrus Hills.
The two people who were
intimately familiar with the
Citrus Hills case no longer

senior agricultural specialist
Dan Armstrong.

along with 12 others in a cost-
cutting move. Greene said
Armstrong's dismissal was
not related to his work on the
Citrus Hills case.

Greene hired
Citrus Hills attorney
Greene has a personal con-
nection that he also says is a
coincidence.
He hired James Spoon-
hour, an Orlando land-use at-
torney who represents Citrus
Hills on the property ap-
praiser lawsuit
Spoonhour represented
Greene when he challenged
Hensley's denial of agricul-
tural classification on the


Lecanto land he owns with
his wife, Sheila.
Asked in a Jan. 29 inter-
view how he came to hire for
his defense the same attor-
ney who represents Citrus
Hills, Greene said he
searched the Internet.
"I went online and found
the best ag guy in the state,"
Greene said.
Greene said he paid
Spoonhour $500 to $1,000 for
his services.


However, Qn Friday,
Greene said he never spoke
with Spoonhour until the Oc-
tober day of the special mag-
istrate's hearing on his
Lecanto property. Greene
said his wife hired Spoon-
hour and that he had nothing
to do with it
Greene denied making the
earlier statement to a reporter
Spoonhour said Friday he
doesn't recall how he met
Greene, but he suspected


that Tamposi or another
client probably referred him
to Greene.
Asked if Greene knew that
he also represented Citrus
Hills, Spoonhour said: "I'm
sure he did."
Spoonhour took the
Greene case on Aug. 29, three
days after Greene defeated
rfensley in a bitterly con-
tested Republican primary.
Greene lost the appeal. Co-
incidentally, the same special


magistrate Herbert Lang-
ford Jr. also turned down
Citrus Hills when it appealed
the 2006 property appraiser's
denial of the agricultural
classification that led to the
lawsuit
Greene turned aside a re-
porter's questions about his
one-time hiring of the same
attorney who also is repre-
senting Citrus Hills.
"The two," he said, "are not
related whatsoever."

Panama City, two weeks in depth


W ith lots and lots of help from a
good friend, a resident of Citrus
County and Panamanian na-
tive, Karyn and I saw more of Panama
City, the Canal and its environs in two
weeks than most Panamanians see in a
lifetime.
First stop, the all suite hotel, Torres
de Alba, with full kitchen, living/dining
areas, and large bedroom, "home" for
the duration. We were located in the
center of Panama City with easy access
to taxicabs, an essential link in sight-
seeing in and around Panama. What a
relief that we could see so much of an-
other country and not have to pack and
repack every day, as we enjoyed all the
comforts of home after a full day of ex-.
cursions.
Our friend
pointed out the
key places that
one would nor-
mally find on a

well as those hid

would otherwise
be missed. She ac- Neil Sawyer

tricians and construction workers
to help needy veterans in making
repairs to their homes such as
building ramps for wheelchair ac-
cess, minor repairs to flooring,
plumbing, purhps and the like.

that we live by our philosophy, of
"Veterans Helping Veterans."
Until next time, Veterans, we
thank you for your service. Please
support our troops and God bless
America.

take you past a huge seafood
market, with an unmistak-
able aroma, as you approach
a derelict area of the old city
marked by a narrow street
known as, "Catch-me-if-you-
can". This street was origi-
nally lined with Chinese
restaurants and is reputed as
serving cat and' dog meat,


hence any animal straying
onto the street must have ut-
tered, "catch-me-if-you-can."
We soon arrive in an area

beautiful buildings of the
1800s. Hollow shells of dilap-
idated buildings ten years ago
are now among the most ex-
pensive real estate in
Panama City. The recon-
structed buildings appear to
be works of art, and are, in-
habited by the elite of the city.
Casco Viejo is home to sev-
eral icons of the old city, The
Golden Altar Church,
Panama Canal Museum, The
National Theatre, and the
Presidential Palace, to name
a few. You will have had a full

That thing that's going around


've got that thing that's going
around. And I can't seem to shake it
It's been weeks now. Coughing, snif-
fling, headaches, sore throat, aches all
over. I hope whoever gave it to me still
has it Let the punishment fit the crime.
Why can't people stay home
when they're sick and suffer
in silence, like I do? I'm so
considerate, I don't even go to
the office when I'm healthy.
Everyone I talk to on the
phone tells me the same
thing: "You sound horrible."
They all give me suggestions
and advice. "Drink water."
"Eat chicken soup." "Drink
chamomile tea." "Take a de-
congestant." "Take a preg- MUI
nancy test." What?
The one thing no one ever says, "Go
see a doctor." Because as we all know,
there's no cure for the common cold.
What about an uncommon cold? The
one that stays in your body for six weeks
and brings friends. It seems there is no
cure, for that, either. It has moved from

my head to my chest and back to my
head. What's that old saying? "Feed a
cold, starve a fever?" I don't know what
that means. I have a cold and a fever.
What am I supposed to do? Eat a big
breakfast and purge for the rest of the
day? It was a tough choice but
I decided to feed it No matter
how miserable I felt, I made
sure I was never far from a
bag of cheese puffs or chips.
Sue had a few silly, New
Age, hippie-dippy health sug-
gestions that were so off-the-
wall it was hard not to laugh.
"You should watch what you
eat, lose some weight and get
some exercise out in the fresh
LEN air. Then you wouldn't get sick
so often." See, now how does
that voodoo work? Where she gets these
crackpot ideas, I'll never know. I've got a
closet full of exercise equipment and it
hasn't done a thing for me.
I'm of the "more is better" school. If a
bowl of chicken soup is good for you,
wouldn't two bowls be really good? If or-

ange juice is full of vitamin C, have two
glasses. If one glass of red wine a day is
good for you, imagine what a whole'bot-
tle will do. If the cough medicine says to
take one teaspoon every four hours,
then one tablespoon every two hours
has got to be better.
But I was so sick, I couldn't keep the
cough medicine, the wine, the soup, the
OJ and the puffs down. It all came up
while I was watching an autopsy on
"CSI." I felt even worse. Maybe I was
getting a touch of stomach flu on top of
a cold. I was much too sick to clean it up.
It's not like I'm Howard Hughes, but I
try to take precautions in the winter. I
get the flu shot. I use the germ-killing
soap. I avoid schoolchildren. But some-
times.nothing works. Like I was telling
the guys when we were drinking Jell-O
shots in Bob's hot tub before I caught
this thing, sometimes you can do every-
thing right and still get sick.

Lady Panthers suffer first loss in final


Lecanto moves to

22-1 on season
JON-MICHAEL SORACCHI
jmsoracchi@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
West Port's game plan against
Lecanto in the District 4A-6 girls
basketball championship was
pretty simple: make someone other
than Panthers guard Briahanna


Jackson beat the Wolf Pack.
Saying the idea worked well
would be an understatement
On Saturday night at Dunnellon
High School, West Port claimed its
fifth straight district crown, the
fourth in 4A-6, by dismantling
Lecanto, 46-28.
"We just responded well," said
West Port head coach Corey Roller-
son. "We know what we had to do
and we made adjustments from the
first two times we played them."
The Panthers suffered their first


loss of the season to move to 22-1
and must hit the road on Thursday
in the first round of the Class 4A
state playoffs..
Lecanto travels to St. Augustine,
District 4A-5 winners after defeat-.
ing Port Orange Atlantic, 61-52.
"West Port did a great job," said
Hall. "They adapted to what we do."
The Wolf Pack started the contest
out in a 2-3 zone to limit Jackson's.
ability to drive to the basket. West
Port somewhat conceded the out-
side shot to Lecanto and the Pan-


others didn't make their opponents
pay in shooting 11-of-42 from
the field:
Jackson had four fouls in the
first half and fouled out with 4:50
left in the game with six points.
Three of the sophomore's fouls
were offensive.
"Our strategy was to not let her
penetrate or dribble to the right
side," said Rollerson, whose team is
now 17-11 overall. "I guess (the
win's) sweet because we lost to
them twice."


Citrus wrestlers take fourth straight district crown


DAVE SIGLER/Chronicle
Citrus High School's Chris Toles, right, wrestled Lecanto High School's Angelo Arcadipane during the District 1A-5 Tournament Saturday at Cit-
rus High School. Toles pinned Arcadipane for the first-place win.


26 county wrestlers

move to regionals
JONATHAN DEUTSCHMAN
jdeutschman@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
And so it begins.
County wrestlers started their
ascent toward the state ranks Sat-
urday at the District 1A-5 tourna-


ment in Inverness with the host
Hurricanes leading the way yet
again. Citrus took home its fourth
district title in as many years and
sent 13 grapplers to the, Region
1A-2 tournament in Palm Coast
next weekend. Citrus County as a
whole had another banner year,
sending 26 wrestlers onward,
besting last season's tally of 20.
Also like last year, Hernando
proved the most dangerous threat
to Citrus, keeping within striking


distance through the semifinals.
By the final round, though, the
Hurricanes had all but shut the
door on a possible upset, with
seven Hurricanes vying for indi-
vidual titles to the Leopards' four.
Almost the entire Citrus team
will be competing at the regional
tournament
"Thirteen of 14 placed in the
top four," said Citrus head coach
Mike Porcelli. "That's the most
we've taken in (my) five years. We


had five champs this year and last
year we had five champs.
"We had 13 matches, we won
11 of them," he said. "We were
dominant It's important because
it's the end of the year we
want to peak"
Coleman Martin (112), Craig
Barker (119), Chris Toles (130),
David Zukley (160) and John Dreg-
gars (285) took home first-place
ribbons for the Hurricanes, with
See (.C1 1 i, Page B4


When asked if the team was dis-
appointed to have to travel for the
first round of the state playoff, Hall
said, "Of course we are."
Lecanto never led and the closest
it would be after the opening tipoff
was down 17-14 after a drive to the
hoop by Jackson for two at the 3:14
mark of the second quarter.
West Port, however, got a jumper
by Jaleesa Townsend, a deep 3 from
Dakeria Williams (who led the Wolf
Pack with 14) and a putback by

Mustangs


take down


Warriors

Meadowbrook

wins district crown
C.J. RISAK
For the Chronicle


OCALA To succeed in a game
like this, to knock off a team the
stature of Meadowbrook Academy,
Seven Rivers Christian girls bas-
ketball coach Rick Kiernan knew
he would need a near perfect per-
formance.
That didn't happen. Not even
close.
A 21-3 third-quarter blitz assured
the top-seeded Mus-
tangs they
would stay at -
home for the
first round of ... '
the Class 1A -
regional play-
offs, guiding them
from a 26-16 halftime
lead to a 47-19 cushion
after three quarters V
and eventually a 53-24 victory in the
District 1A-6 title game.
Seven Rivers, now 15-13, will
travel to play the winner of the 1A-
5 district on Thursday. Mea.dow-
brook, 20-2. %will play the 1A-5
runner-up Thursday.
Asked to describe the game, Kier-
nan could only smile and say,:
"That's Meadowbrook. That's how I
describe it.
"That's a class school. I just wish
I coached some of their girls."
Not that he was displeased with
his team's performance. It was just
that the Warriors, who pulled off a
major upset the previous evening
when they beat secohd-seeded
Hernando Christian, could not
generate the firepower to stay with
Meadowbrook
The Warriors did convert a re-
spectable 38.5 percent of their
first-half shots from the field, com-
pared to Meadowbrook's 30 per-
cent. Problem was, Seven Rivers
took just 13 shots in those first two
quarters while committing 23
turnovers and again, that was
just in the.first half.
They increased their shot total in
the second half, attempting 33
shots. But they only made two of
them, a dismal six percent shooting
from the floor Just as bad, they hit
just 8-of-23 free throws (35 percent),
something Kiernan thought could
be a decisive factor.
"We were going to have to make
all of our free throws," he said. "And
we wanted to get them into more
foul trouble than we did."
Perhaps the game was defined by
the opening three minutes. Seven
Rivers took their first shot a miss
- with 4:43 left By that time, the
Warriors had already committed
seven turnovers.
And Meadowbrook had a 6-0 lead.
It was 13-6 after one quarter, a
score that was close due to a combi-
nation of poor Meadowbrook shoot-
ing (5-of-17) and solid defense by

Harvick wins Budweiser Shootout


JOHN COSCIA
'coscia@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
DAYTONA BEACH Most antic-
ipated a wild night for the 31st run-
ning of the Bud Shootout. And they
got just what they hoped for
One debut ended prematurely.
Another, to the surprise of no one,
was quite successful. But in the end,
the car that looked to be the dog of
the field early was left celebrating
. in Victory Lane.
*"' In 2007, Kevin Harvick took the


checkered flag for his first victory in
the Daytona 500. On Saturday night,
he kicked off the 2009 SpeedWeeks
with a thrilling finish that left him
the last man standing.
"Man if you don't enjoy that...That
was racing. Awesome," exclaimed
Harvick from Victory Lane. "That
was wild as heck right there. I told
them they ought to cancel testing
every year if we're going to race like
that"
His owner concurred.
"For the fans, the price of admis-
sion was well worth it," said


Richard Childress, owner of Har-
vick's No. 29 Shell-Pennzoi]
Chevrolet.
A race that saw modifications tc
its original format, including bump-
ing up the distance from 70 to 7
laps, needed an extra two laps of a
green, white checkered finish to set-
tle this year's Shootout
And even the 77th lap left sheel
metal scattered across the track and
Harvick, followed by Jamie McMur-
ray and Tony Stewart escaping with
the top three spots.

back to a full-court press
against Lecanto, who had
trouble moving the ball past
half court without Jackson.
With Jackson out for much
of the contest, the Panthers
played without two starters.
Senior Lexy Angelo missed
her third straight game with
an ACL injury.
Stephanie Savery led the
Panthers with 11 points and
pulled down a game-high 11
rebounds in the loss. Marie
Taylor scored seven and

who had to concern Seven
Rivers was the Mustangs'
Kimberlee Thomas, but she
was kept under control, scor-
ing just eight first-half points,
and then drawing her third
personal foul just 1:12 into
the second half.
But that, ironically, proved
to work in Meadowbrook's
favor
"We got into a bit of foul
trouble when Kimberlee
picked up her third foul early
in the third quarter, so we

missed free throw.
Those seven straight points
staked the Wolf Pack to a 24-
14 lead at the break, one
they'd never relinquish.:
Lecanto attempted to draw
closer and cut West Port's ad-
vantage to 30-23 on baskets by
Kyla Brooks and Jackson.

a 1-3-1 half-court zone," ex-
plained Meadowbrook coach
Bert Thomas. "I wanted to
pressure their guards.
"I knew the third quarter
would be the key. We've al-
ways done well in the third,
we average something like 21
points in that quarter. And I
knew they would come out
strong in the first half after
their game the night before. I
just wanted to take control in
the third."
Thomas had been able to
rest his starters the previous
night after rolling to a 50-9
halftime lead over St. John
Lutheran.
"That's where we won it -
in the third quarter," he
added.

"I'll take that for a debut

third place finish but I'll take
it," admitted Stewart, who

To that point, the Shootout

changes (23), a record num-
ber of different leaders (14)
and a record number of cau-
tions (8).
One driver that was caught
up in the night's first caution

Tim Musto (152) and Aaron
Zukley (189) falling in their
title matches. Advancing
from the lower bracket for
Citrus are Robert Norman
(103), Justin Nolen (125),
Tyler Hopkins (135), Blake
DeCarlo (140), Casey Whitton
(145) and Jacob Liptrap (171).
Of those, Barker and David
Zukley qualified for the state
tournament last season.
"Let's give credit to this
team," said Porcelli. "Be-
tween (David) Zukley, Toles
and Barker, the leadership
has been outstanding.
"We just want to get a good
week of practice, control the
stuff we can control, and let
the other stuff go," he said.
"We gotta make regions next
week ...and then it's time."
David Zukley, a senior, is
one of the Hurricanes who
has been along for most of the
four-year ride.
"I came here my sopho-
more year, and it was starting
to really get going then," he
said. "It's interesting seeing
the team grow, and get
younger and older, and just
kind of transition."
Lecanto and Crystal River
both sent half of their respec-
tive squads to Palm Coast,
with the Panthers advancing
seven and the Pirates ad-
vancing six.
Crystal River had two dis-
trict champions in David
Vreeland (103) and Robert
Brass (215). Vreeland, a soph-
omore and state qualifier last
season, took fourth in the re-
gion last year but has higher
aspirations this time around.
"My goal is to place first or
second," he said. "I should be
the second seed."
Crystal River head coach
Craig Frederick was pleas-
antly surprised by his team's
stout showing.

lita (who scored 11) dropped
in a layup after Jackson had
a 3 rim out on her at the other
end to push the margin out to
nine and then the game took
a bad turn for the Panthers.
Jackson got called for her
fifth foul on a charge and
then drew a technical foul for
hitting the padding behind
the basket.
The Wolf Pack turned the
two.free throws and ensuing
possession into three points
and a 35-23 lead. Even more

Only four players scored for
the Warriors.
"We're happy," said Kier-
nan. "We have another game.
We haven't been to the state
tournament in five years.."
They extended their sea- -
son. Now it's a matter of what
the Warriors do with it

the lead late in the race.
"I figured that everyone'
would do it," Busch's Steve
Addington admitted. "That,-
was my fault. I figure they'll
be another caution though
and we'll get 'em then."

."It's tough-, you start in
the back and that's what hap-
pens. It's tough for the whole
Home Depot bunch they
tried hard. I telt. like we. had a
decent car tor the first cou-
ple of laps," Logano ex-
plained. "I was just trying to
get a feel for it before we
went up there and mixed it
up with everyone. It sucks ...
it's too early"
During pit stops following
that third caution, Kyle
Busch's team took an inter-
esting strategic approach by
opting to take just gas and no
tires. The decision allowed
him.to take the lead for the
restart but it was one that was
very short-lived as Earnhardt
Jr. in the No. 88 Amp car took


"Ican't complain," he said.
"If you'd have told me six, I
would have said I don't know.
about that" .
Michael Surber (112) also
made his title match, but
fell to Citrus' Martin. Ad-
vancing out of the lower
bracket are Tyler Walters
(119), Steven Jordan (125)
and Rene Cruz (285).
Lecanto's sole champion
was Steven Struble (145) who
won his match against Her-
nando's Max Morrill in the
final seconds. Morrill dove
for a leg shot and became off
balance and Struble took ad-
vantage, notching a takedown
and the win.
"He's just mean," Lecanto
head coach Scott Roberts
said of Struble. "He don't like
to lose."
As for Struble, he has a
good idea of how the regional
tournament will go.
"I should get first," he said.
"It will probably be me and
Max Morrill again (in the
final)."
Angelo Arcadipane (130)
and brother Sam Arcadipane
(135) wrestled in a title match
for the Panthers but both fell
by decision. Jason Roberts
(140), Matt Sblano (160), Erik

Today in
HISTORY -

Today is Sunday, Feb. 8, the
39th day of 2009. There are 326
days left in the year.
Today's Highlight in History:
On Feb. 8, 1968, three black
college students were killed in a
confrontation with highway patrol-
men in Orangeburg, S.C., during -
a civil rights protest against a
whites-only bowling alley.
On this date:
In 1587, Mary, Queen of Scots,
was beheaded at Fotheringhay
Castle in England after she was
implicated in a plot to assassinate
her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I.
In 1693, a charter was granted
for the College of William &.Mary-'.-
in Williamsburg, Va.
In 1837, the Senate selected the
vice president of the United States,
choosing Richard Mentor Johnson
after no candidate received a ma-
jority of electoral votes.
In 1924, the first execution by
gas in the United States took'
place at the Nevada State Prison
in Carson City as Gee Jon, a
Chinese immigrant convicted of .-
murder, was put to death.
In 1974, the last three-man
crew of the Skylab space station
returned to Earth after spending
84 days in space.
In 2007, model, actress and
tabloid sensation Anna Nicole
Smith died in Florida at age 39 of
an accidental drug overdose.
Ten years ago: The Senate
heard closing arguments at Pres-
ident Bill Clinton's impeachment
trial, with House prosecutors
challenging senators to "cleanse
the office" and the president's at-
torney dismissing the case as
one of partisan retribution.
Five years ago: President
George W. Bush denied marching
America into war under false pre-
tenses and said in an interview on
NBC's "Meet the Press" the U.S.-
led invasidn was necessary be-
cause Saddam Hussein could
have developed a nuclear weapon.
One year ago: Scotland Yard
investigators concluded that Pak-
istani opposition leader Benazir
Bhutto died on Dec. 27, 2007, as
the result of a bomb blast, not a
gunshot.

have a confession to
make.
I have visited The
Freezer in Homosassa;
Furthermore, I had a good
time.
The Freezer is a casual
restaurant that is tucked into
a residential community on
the Homosassa River It oper-
ates out of an old freezer that
was once part of a commer-
cial fishing dock The Freezer
serves fresh shrimp, crab and
various types of fish.
And it serves cold beer
And people laugh and have
a good time.
Everyone seems to love the
place except for the neigh-
bors. And that's easy to un-
derstand because the success
of the restaurant has made
the neighborhood a crowded
place on certain evenings.
The owner of The Freezer
apparently didn't follow all of
the rules when he opened the
restaurant last year and the
county is now taking action
that could close him down.
Most of the locals don't like
the idea of the county shut-
ting down a business espe-
cially one that seems so
successful.
If you can make a general-
ization about Homosassa, I
think it would be easy to say
that most of the people who
grew up there or moved to

Progress Energy customers


conserving energy are paying
more than those who waste
electricity This isn't true. Cus-
tomers are billed a lower rate
forthe first 1,000 kilowatt-hours

rate, about 146 cents per kilo-

POLITICAL MORASS



Bad judgment



a disservice



to taxpayers


he most charitable thing
that can be said about for-
mer Florida House
Speaker Ray Sansom is he
showed incredibly bad judgment
by accepting a $110,000 unadver-
tised job with a college he had
steered tens of millions of dol-
lars to while he was heading up
the House budget
Sansom, who quit his North-
west Florida State College job
Jan. 31, resigned as House
speaker last week
in the face of in- THE I|
tense pressure from
the public and his Ray Sansc
fellow legislators. as House
State Attorney
Willie Meggs is in- OUR OP
vestigating Sansom
on allegations that Timing of
he accepted the job unfort
at the school as pay-
ment for the money steered its
way in the state budget, and on
charges that he and the school's
trustees violated Sunshine Laws
last March during a meeting in
Tallahassee.
Sansom has maintained all
along he did nothing wrong. He
claims the money could only be
spent on school construction.
However, the Department of Ed-
ucation recommended a $1 mil-
lion award, not the $25.5 million
Sansom gave the college. There
are 27 other community and
state colleges in Florida that
could have benefited from a por-
tion of that'money, which was
the largest ever awarded to one
school.
For example, Central Florida
Community College trustees re-
cently voted to offer four-year de-
grees and could have used
$350,000 of that construction fund
to build a lab and buy equipment
so they could offer a four-year
Medical Lab Technology degree.

Looking for gold
If anybody found a man's gold
wedding band size 12 lost in the
Wal-Mart Bank of America, this
gold band went through Vietnam
and 50 years of marriage many
sentimental memories. Please call
the Rev. Clark at 341-5948. That's a
gold wedding band lost ...
Stop fighting and work
This is to the county administra-
tor and the county commissioners:
Shame on all of you who have
been elected or hired to
represent the citizens of 0
Citrus County, and all you
can do up there is fight
amongst yourselves and
hire a facilitator. Why
aren't you addressing the
serious things in this
county? No wonder no
business wants to come in
here. Regardless of the CAL
impact fees, if they see _V
what kind of people 563
they're dealing with to
even come in here, I wouldn't and I
don't think any other ones would.
Where's the responsibility?
Let me get this straight: Some
doctor implanted eight embryos into
an unmarried single mom who al-
ready had six kids who she is not
supporting already...That's uncon-
scionable. Where's the accountability
on the doctor? ... She is obsessed
with having children but she's not
paying for them. Where's the respon-
sibility on that score? I kbw that in
this country we don't demand that


: Even more aggravating is that
state revenues were shrinking
and Sansom was asking fellow
lawmakers to limit their re-
quests for local dollars while he
was filling Northwest Florida
State College's coffers.
While a grand jury continues
its investigation into an ethics
complaint against Sansom, de-
tails about a possible Sunshine
Law violation against Sansom
a.d the college's trustees
emerge. The meet-
SUE*. ing was advertised,
"U but in a newspaper
im resigns' 150 miles from
Speaker, where the meeting
took place. The
PINION: meeting was held in
a members-only
distraction club and the cater-
unate. ers were said to
have been asked
not to post signs for the public to
find the meeting place. And fi-
nally, minutes for the meeting
werinot kept but typed up from
m.Mtory by the college president
into a one-paragraph document
10 months after the' meeting.
In a recent letter to the Talla-
hassee Democrat, Sansom said
the truth will come out and he
will be vindicated. "I can only
pray that, when passions cool,
the truth about my record and
about the way I've lived my life
will count for more than the cyn-
icism arid innuendo that have
had such disproportionate influ-
ence in recent weeks," he wrote.
While we wish no one ill will,
we can only hope it was incredi-
bly bad judgment on his part and
not criminal wrongdoing. Either
way, the distraction was unnec-
essary and took the Legislature's
focus off the bigger problems in
the state. We can't see how San-
som should remain in the Legis-
lature.


you can only have two children or
whatever, but somebody has to take
personal responsibility. I chose not
to have children because I thought
the world was overpopulated and it
would only add to our burden. I
thought you could adopt children.
There's millions of children that are
suffering, you know. Why does she
have to have 14 children that she
can't pay for that I'm going to have
to pay for as a taxpayer and I made
the responsible choices to not have
children and to help other children?
Lack of protection
JND I have been reading a lot
MM on the Sound Off about
older people their driving,
their slowness, their taking
too much time in lines at the
stores and the banks and
etc., and just generally tak-
ing up space. Well, the main
fault I find in them is that
ffr'fl they didn't use enough pro-
)579 tection when they were
young and intimate.
Having a ball
I've been watching the Super
Bowl -people down in Tampa all
week celebrating, sitting around all
day drinking beer.and having a
good time. Why need to,pay $2,600
for a football ticket? And the econ-
omy's supposed to be so bad and
people are starving to death. I don't
feel sorry for none of them. They
ought to go out and get a job. They
know where the jobs are. They
blame everything on Bush. Look at
the people having a ball.

LETTERS to the.

Real estate taxes unfair | OPINIONS INVITED


(Recently) you had an editorial
that identified the problem of two
homes that were built at the same
time, say 20 years ago, had the
same assessed value and the own-
ers paid the same taxes to Citrus
County. The next day one home
was sold and the new assessed
value, which was much higher, be-
came the sale price of one of the
homes. Then you went on with a
crazy idea that the difference in
the taxes paid should be put into a
special fund for another purpose.
You did real good in identifying
the problem that exists in the man-
ner that taxable value is established
and the unfairness of the process.
Your solution is just plain crazy.
What would happen if the two
new homes were sold in 2005 or
2006 when the market was at its
peak? When one of the homes is
sold now at a reduced price of, say,
50 percent will the person that
buys the home now be taxed at 50
percent less than his neighbor?Do
the people that live in each of the
homes receive the same services
from Citrus County? Of course, the
answer to that question is yes. If
two or more homes receive the
same services from the county and
the homes are about the same in
home size and property size I think

Editor -
At what cost security?
There are several reasons that we '
should thank our leaders for mak-
ing us feel so secure in our country:
Airports: Take off your shoes,
walk through metal detectors, ex-
plosive sniffing booths, and finally
full body X-rays. We are safe!
Amusement parks: To enjoy the
sights and rides, you must go through
metal detectors. We feel safe!
Courthouses: To get government-
mandated papers, you must go
through the metal detectors. We
feel safer doing this!
Tampa Bay football games:
Search me please, so we can feel
safe. Isn't that a violation of some
sort of Constitutional decree?
Warrantless searches: The
Supreme Court ruled that the po-
lice in Utah couldn't be sued for
searching a suspect's house with-
out a warrant. Do we feel safe?
Patriot Act: How many Constitu-
tional violations are in this act of
security? Ever hear of phone taps?
Homeland Security: Untold bil-
lions spent to feel safe and secure.
Some ideas on being safe and se-
cure in the future:
A National ID card. Police could
scan it at any time and for any reason,
Bar codes on necks at birth -
police, scan at will.
Border checks between states.
Rewards for informing on your
suspicious-looking neighbors.
As we give up more of our free-
doms to be secure? At what point
does al-Qaida win and America lose?
Just think how safe and secure the
people of Venezuela and Cuba feel.
But as our former president G.W
Bush once infamously said: 'The
Constitution is only a piece of paper"

No doubt about it, I've experienced 'baited' breath


STTT waiting with
j ~ bated breath" is
a phrase which
is misquoted quite often with
the speaker using "baited"
instead of "bated."
My research indicated that
"bated" is an abbreviation of
the word "abated" and wait-
ing with bated breath means
sitting and holding one's
breath while listening in-
tently
A few days ago, I saw a pic-
ture in the Chronicle of a
couple of fellows sitting be-


side the lake at Liberty Park
fishing. These guys were
holding cane poles, resting in
folding chairs and didn't
seem to have a care in the
world.
As you regular readers are
aware, I've recently retired.
One of the promises I've
made to myself is to find time
to do a bit of cane pole fish-
ing.
After seeing the news
photo and recognizing the
spot as being along a route
I've begun to use occasionally


for my morning 1 to get bait. My ex-

realized I didn't know where Not to be outdone, I de-


cided to take my modern ver-
sion of a fishing pole and im-
provise with the bait I took
a bagel. On other occasions
I've found if the fish are very
hungry, a small dough ball
will tempt them to bite.
It didn't work
Who knows, perhaps if I'd
added onions and cream
cheese the bream might have
been interested, but a plain,
old dough ball didn't solicit a
single nibble.
I gave up on fishing and
completed my walk around


the park Not so surprisingly,
along the way, the balance of
the bait bagel began to look
pretty good, so, to avoid wast-
ing it, I ate it.
I snickered when I thought
about my "baited breath" I
had eaten the bait, albeit a
bagel.
I suppose it was a good thing
I didn't have any wigglers.

Sound OFF


NO intervention
While longing for the proven fact that he
who governs less governs best, I heard an in-
terview of some lady who's supposed to be
an expert yesterday with Matt Lauer on the
TV saying it's time for government to inter-
vene. God help us.
American nightmare
We are two elderly citizens trying to live on
a small fixed income. Due to the economy, we
are using less water, less heat, less air condi-
tioning, driving less and eating less. We
looked forward to a cost-of-living increase in
our Social Security checks, but our legislators
have decided that we must give half of it to
Progress Energy so they don't have to borrow
the money for a new power plant. The Ameri-
can dream has turned into a nightmare.
Decorating graves
I'm calling up about the Oak Ridge Ceme-
tery, in that you're thinking about doing away
with people putting items on the graves. I
think that you should allow them to put them


on the graves. I've seen little kids up there
just putting their little ceramic things, and,
more than not, half the time you come back
and they've been broken or someone stole
your flowers or something like that. Maybe
they should take a little more time to look
after it. Also, your contract for maintenance
was done when gas was $4 a gallon, and I
think maybe you could take a little extra time
going around them because it doesn't cost
$4 a gallon for gas now. So anyway, I think it
would be a shame if you discontinued that.
Political correctness
I was glad to read in your Sound Off col-
umn that someone also believes that Barack
Obama is not black. He is'mulatto and the
dictionary reads it as the offspring of a white
person and a black person, which is what he
is, and he is not black.
Tacky trees
Is it possible for the county to come out and
pick up downed trees, palm trees, on (U.S.) 19
north of Airport Plaza on the right going
north on (U.S.) 19? It looks so very tacky.

wto me Mr. Greene drove that
u point home by saying, 'Agricul-

said the firings were CAL

Greene hired people .
to take their places at higher&

with this picture? When you im-
plement budget cuts, you elimi-
nate the position and the
dollars. Instead Greene kept the
positions, added positions and
increased the dollar amounts.,
And what about the board of
commissioners? Aren't they
supposed to approve his
budget? In all my years, I have
never seen government so out
of control ... Seems to me
some of the voters of Citrus

for four years ... Again, remem-
ber this man is supposed to be

Some of the $850 billion
can produce more jobs for
workers that pay taxes, by in-
vesting in new oil refineries to'
produce more (gas) or diesel
fuel for trucks and farmers at
a fair price. That will help keep
the food supplies growing.
Businesses use oil for fertil-
izer, for food. Build plants that
will last for years.

steel. We have lost money,

environmental rules and labor.
Steel made in other countries,
like China, Brazil or others,
pollute the air and water for
all of the world. Prices will
come down. Then we will get
more done with the $850 b'il-
lion. People will go back to
buying what they want ... God
bless America.
Still struggling
I'm calling the Chronicle
(because) I just wanted to
clear something up about So-
cial Security disability recipi-


ents. First of all, we pay a
premium for our Medicare.
We pay a premium for
Medicare Part D, which only
covers up to $2,500 because
of the gap. After the $2,500
gap, you have to pay $4,000
out of your pocket for your
medicines, and then Social
Security takes over. And also,
if you don't buy a Medicare
supplement, you're responsi-
ble for 20 percent of the doc-
tor bills, laboratory bills and
hospital bills. So for people
like us.on Social Security dis-
ability, don't think we have it
made in the shade. We're
struggling on a fixed income
and trying to make ends
meet just like everyone else.
Lazy eyes.
As president of the United
States of America, I believe
that you are responsible to
make sure that everyone that
you put on your Cabinet, on
your program, that they are
free from not being crooks. So
far now you have two of them;
Daschle now is also one who
didn't pay his taxes. You just
try not to pay your taxes and
you'll be in jail so fast. And he's
goingto put him o'n his com-
mittee again? This is a ridicu-
lous thing ...If you notice, most
of his people, he has not done
his job to see whether they're
bad or not. And that means .
that our president isn't looking
at the things that he should.
The president of the United
States should know everything
that's going on, and he's not.


Great leader
Like any president, George
Bush leaves office with pluses
and minuses. I count as a plus
the fact that he took down
Saddam Hussein.
Bush may not have heeded
warnings from some quarters
to ensure that the Iraq war
prosecuted correctly after
the invasion. He did, how-
ever, have the courage to turn
things around with the surge.
Although the deficit bal-
looned under Bush, much of
the increase was because of
the war and the need to pro-
tect the country after Sept
11. Until the recent financial
crisis, the deficit as a per-
centage of the gross domestic
product was in line with the
averages of the past 40 years.
Overall, the unemployment
rate under Bush was better
than many years of the Clin-
ton presidency
Yet in the sweep of history
Bush will be remembered for
one thing: After Sept 11, he
kept us safe from another ter-
rorist attack We haven't been
attacked because of the
sweeping changes Bush insti-
gated in the intelligence com-
munity, along with the work of
the FBI, the CIA and our mili-
tary under his direction. The
NSA intercepts that Bush or-
dered opened a window for
the FBI on terrorist activity
within the United States.
Since Sept .11 the FBI and
CIA have put about 5,000 ter-
rorists out of business.
Instead of hailing the ef-
forts to connect the dots, the
media denigrates those try-
ing to protect us, portraying
the tools that uncover clues
to plots as spying bn innocent
Americans. When a plot is
quashed, the media mini-
mizes it Saddam admitted to
FBI agent George Piro dur-
ing months of secret debrief-
ing that he had planned to
resume his weapons of mass
destruction program within a
year. When the media and
politicians run out of ways to
deny Bush credit for making
us safer, they will claim that
al-Qaida has chosen to space
out its attacks. But al-Qaida's
attempt to blow up nine
American airlines in 2006 is
a stark reminder that the ter-
rorists are constantly on the
attack In my view Bush's
tight press policy was one of
his greatest mistakes. It con-
tributed to the media's hostil-
ity toward him. Yet in the
end, what could be more im-
portant than protecting our
country from another attack?

Dear Charlie Dean
What a shocker! Yesterday
I received my first Progress
Energy bill since being
awarded a 25 percent rate in-
crease by the Florida Public
Service Commission (FPSC).
My electric bill for 33 days
ending Jan. 20 was $328. This
is more than $100 higher than
I've ever paid over the past 22
years at our residence.
Needless to say, I'm much
distressed and disappointed
in our legislators allowing
Progress Energy to raise my
energy bill by 25 percent As
you know, over the past seven
months, spot oil prices, as
quoted on the New York Mer-
cantile exchange, have
dropped from over $140 a bar-
rel to about $40 a barrel today
By advanced arithmetic,
that's a drop of over $100 a
barrel, or, a 71 percent de-
cline in price. Knowing this,
how can any legislator in
his/her right mind allow the
FPSC to approve a 25 percent
rate increase to Progress En-
ergy customers?
I'm aware that Progress En-
ergy uses many sources ofen-
ergy, but the bottom line is:
energy sources have declined
substantially over the past six
months! In their covering let-
ter, higher energy prices were
the No. 1 reason (of four rea-
sons given) by Progress En-
ergy for their FPSC-approved
25 percent increase. High en-
ergy prices are a lie!
Please advise what you, as
my senator, have done or are
doing to correct this irrespon-
sible price increase allowed
during a recessionary period
of time when nearly all prices
for commodities and natural
resources are declining sub-
stantially.
Also, please advise why,
customers in Citrus County
will be paying for a new
Progress Energy nuclear
plant in Levy County. Payment
for this type of future expan-
sion traditionally has been ac-
complished by a bond or stock
issue, and not by consumers.
Over the years that you've
been my representative and
now my senator, I have com-
municated with you on nu-
merous occasions regarding
this and other issues of seri-
ous concern. Needless to say,
I'm most disappointed that
I've neverreceived any re-
sponse from you. You've been
100 percent incomunicado. As
my state senator, I'm request-
ing a response from you re-
garding all of the above.

No one seems to mind.
I can remember being
down in Old Homosassa in
March of 1993 after the No-
Name Storm flooded the en-
tire west coast of Florida. We
were volunteering to help
clean up in one of the hard-hit
neighborhoods and I came
upon a 55-gallon drum that
had a bad smell. I was going to
put it on a truck to be hauled
out, but one of the'young lo-
cals said it was his septic tank
and he wanted it back

plays to a different tune.
Admittedly, things are
changing in old Homosassa.
While the economy is tough,
a few more businesses have
sprung up and there is a vi-
brancy about the place that
feels good.
I have got to admit that I also
know some of the folks who are
not happy about The Freezer
and have much admiration for

At least when we e-mail or
text, we say hello and good-
bye. That's more than most


But it also feels wrong to
say that The Freezer needs to
be put out of business. In my
view, the county needs to find
a compromise that permits
the business to operate.
The owner has a responsi-

Give us a break
I'm calling in about those
electric rates going up from
Progress Energy. They're mak-
ing it tough on a guy, you
know, with SUV payments for
the wife and truck payments
for me, credit card payments
for the big-screen TV and the
video games we bought at
Christmas, and feeding those
hunting dogs of mine and the
wife's cats, and paying those
cell phone payments, and
then, after buying cigarettes
and beer, there ain't no money
left over for electricity. So I
wish they'd take those rates
back and have a break on the
guys that are having a hard
time. So if they'd cut those
rates back, it would sure help
us guys. Appreciate it.
Disheartening
Being an unemployed con-
struction worker since Febru-
ary of '07 and cutting every
corner possible to heat my
house and feed my family,
and then look across the
street at a family on welfare
that can order takeout deliv-
ered to their home at least
once a week, it's very dis-
heartening. Welcome to
Florida's paradise.
Lost band
My husband went into sur-
gery at Citrus Memorial. He
gave me his gold wedding
band. This band went through
--- Vietnam, 24 years of military'
service and 50 years marriage
and I've lost it. (If) anybody
can find it, I'd appreciate it,
and return it. I lost it either at.
Wal-Mart or the Bahk of Amer-
ica. Call me at 341-5948.

Honda dealership moves to new, bigger building Avaabefmmerciaviders"
h~pmovI U-lI9


CHRIS VAN ORMER '

The stretch of car dealerships
along U.S. 19 between Crystal River
and Homosassa is expanding, as
Love Honda constructed a new
building for its new Hondas.
"We've outgrown our store here,"
said Chad Halleen, general man-
ager and vice president of Love
Honda.
The new store should meet the
company's needs when it opens
Monday.
"It's 40,000 square feet, almost
double what we operate in now,"
Halleen said.


Halleen is partners with his fa-
ther, Bob Halleen. owner and pres-
ident The company opened in 1990
with Nissan, but started the Honda
dealership in 1992. Then, in 2006,
the Halleens traded franchises
with Steve Lamb, swapping their
Nissan for Lamb's Chevrolet deal-
ership in Inverness, which gave
Love placement in Inverness as
well as Homosassa. ,
Love also includes a Motorsports
center on State Road 44 in Crystal
River and the pre-owned super-
center on U.S. 19.
But the company is spreading out
for Honda.
"December was a record month
in sales," Halleen said. "It was the


highest volume December since
1992."
By building dut, he said, the com-
pany is showing the confidence it
has in Honda.
"I believe in the product,"
Halleen said. "People like the fuel
mileage and the factory offers to
promote the line."
Halleen said that he has offers
that get the company a good cus-
tomer base.
"We have up to $5,000 rebates
and interest of 0.9 percent," he said.
"The interest rate is 3.9 percent on
pre-owned."
He really likes the way Honda
treats its dealerships.
"Honda is very customer, ori-


ented and dealer oriented as far as
support goes," Halleen said.
The reason it draws so many cus-
tomers is because Honda holds its
value well. Halleen said, and it also
is trying to be environmentally
friendly.
"Honda is one of the greenest
auto manufacturers," Halleen said.
"They have hydrogen-electric hy-
brid technology."
With the worry about gas prices,
many drivers are looking to buy hy-
brids.
"The hybrids don't stay on the lot
long when I have them," he said.
But for driving in Citrus County,
residents here are not making as

When families change,
what happens to posses-

"Chuck's mother passed
away in September 2007 in
Michigan," said Citrus
Springs resident Judy Hind-
baugh, explaining how deal-
ing with her mother-in-law's
effects led to her new busi-

"She had accumulated a lot

never got rid of anything."

After a couple of trips to
Michigan to try to organize

made them look good for the
estate sale they conducted
for us."
The service did not stop
once the house was cleared.
"When the sale was fin-
ished," Judy said, "they gave
the whole house a general


cleaning. The hidden benefit
was having about 300 people
going through the house that
was for sale at the time. It
was like having an unofficial
open house."
The service gave the Hind-
baughs a sense of relief.
"It was a godsend," Judy


said.
The experience tweaked
an idea for the Hindbaughs to
launch their own branch of
Caring Transitions in Citrus
County.

would work well in Florida,

nation's first national fran-
chising concept specializing
in senior relocation and tran-
sition services that provides
a total solution for families

"During training, I discovered
that it was more than just es-
tate sales," Judy said. "We can
also help with downsizing and
senior moves."
When an older person de-
cides to move into an assisted
living facility, the Hindbaughs
will be prepared to help make
the move easier
"We go the extra yard," Judy
said. "We can measure the fur-
niture they want to take with
them and show them on a com-

Then we can move it in for
them. We have a resource of
people to move them."
In addition, the Hindbaughs
can coordinate such services
as painting and decorating and
carpet cleaning.
With personal possessions
in place, the new resident
could look forward to other
home-like touches, if they like.
"We can arrange for them to
have their favorite meal
served," Judy said.
She has the background to

great a demand for hybrids
as in other markets, he
said.
'"They tend' toward the
metro market with stop-
and-go traffic," Halleen
said.
So what is Love Honda's
most popular model?
"It's the Accord," Halleen
said. "It's all about resale,
quality and fuel mileage."
Halleen said it was hard
to keep supply up with de-
mand.
The expansion of the
business will bring some
changes. Within the year,
Halleen expects to increase
staff by 10 to 12 people.
"We now employ 80 peo-
ple, and we are not letting
anybody go and not cutting


hours," he said. "The vol-
ume will go up inside the
new store."
Car buyers can look for-
ward to better service all
round in the new store,
Halleen said. "The new
store will be a lot more con-
sumer friendly."
For example, it will have
a children's play area and
refreshments. And more
space has been allocated to
the mechanics.
"The service department

Center, WRZN 720 AM Radio
and the Citrus County Chronicle
is joining the ,Meals on Wheels
Association of America and its
local programs nationwide for the
annual March For Meals cam-
paign to help stop senior hunger.
This year marks the eighth an-
nual March For Meals campaign
for Citrus County. The local pro-
gram is referred to as the "Home
Delivered Meals Program." Each
year during March For Meals,
home delivered meal programs
nationwide work to raise public
awareness of senior nutrition is-
sues, raise funds to enable the


provision of their meal services,
and recruit volunteers to assist in
the delivery of those services to a
growing population. On Friday,
March 6, the Home Delivered
Meals Program is hosting a fund-'
raising "Spring Fling" dance. This
is the third year the Spring Fling
will be held at the Citrus Springs
Community Center at 1570 W.

rus Springs. The event will be
from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., with live
entertainment by "Center Stage,"
a 20-piece band. The public is in-
vited to enjoy an evening of
beautiful music, light refresh-
ments anp dancing the night
away. Tickets are $12 per person
and all proceeds go to providing
more meals for seniors in Citrus
County The Home Delivered
Meals Program is asking individ-
uals who want to join in the
eighth annual March For Meals
event to do one of two things
either donate the moriey they
would spend eating out for their
own lunch or sign up to work as a
volunteer serving or delivering
meals throughout the year. "We
hope March For Meals 2009 will
help rally our community behind
our organization and the vital
work that we do," said Pat Coles,
program supervisor. "Every day,
hundreds of thousands of senior
citizens, some of whom live right
here in our community, go hun-


gry. We are working hard to
change this, and we are suc-
ceeding, but we need your help.
Every person can make a differ-
ence, from donating, to volun-
teering, to educating yourself and
others about senior hunger is-
sues." The Meals On Wheels As-
sociation of America is a national
organization whose mission is to
provide visionary leadership and
professional training for home de-
livered meal programs nation-
wide and to develop partnerships
that will ensure the provision of
quality nutrition services. All con-
tributions to the Home Delivered
Meals Program are tax-de-
ductible, and all donations go 100
percent towards meals. Checks

my husband, Lynn, and I spent
more than 20 years raising our

of moving to Citrus County
about 3 1/2 years ago, which


CCBA v.o.P.


has provided me the opportu-
nity to be more involved in the
CCBA, as well as the commu-
nity.
I am proud to be a member

nate to sit on the Board of Di-
rectors, chair the Sponsorship
sub-committee for the Parade

Find your part in the American dream


A home is more than just a
structure where people take
up residency. Owning a home
means freedom, financial ih-
dependence and security. For
many, owning a home brings
a feeling of success, knowl-
edge that they've obtained
their own piece of the Ameri-
can dream, and new homes
offer safety, amenities, energy
efficiency and lifestyle like
never before.
Technological advances
mean that today's homes are
safer, because new homes
take advantage of break-
throughs in building science.
For example, hard-wired and
interconnected smoke alarms
bring a new level of fire safety
to new homes. New fire-resis-
tant construction materials
mean less chance of a dan-
gerous fire. Tempered glass,
now found in many patio
doors and windows, means
less chance of an injury
should one break.
New homes are more en-
ergy efficient. Builders nation-


wide are embracing new
green building techniques de-
signed to help protect our en-
vironment while saving you
money. New products and
materials enable them to
make a house more resource-
efficient and water-thrifty.
Today's new homes offer a
choice of lifestyle. Because of
demands for larger socializing
spaces in the home, larger
kitchens are becoming more
common. New homes also
feature more bathrooms and
more storage space. Con-
sumers are seeking higher
ceilings, walk-in showers with
multiple heads, three-car
garages and outdoor enter-
tainment spaces with fire-
places and grills. And builders
are responding with new
homes that provide these fea-
tures.
To find a highly qualified
new home builder in our area,

or call the Citrus County
Builders Association at (352)

Compost is key


to healthy plants


he recycle station is my fa-
vorite part of the Florida-
friendly Learning
Landscape, behind the
Citrus County Exten-
sion in Lecanto.
The recycle station
consists of nine differ-
ent types of composting
units, including a Sim-
ple, inexpensive chick- .
enwire unit that can be
assembled for less than
$10, a tumbling unit Audre
made from a recycled F7
plastic barrel (we can
supply you with the as-
sembly instructions), a worm com-
posting unit and several other
commercially-available bins.
I start my youth programs here
because kids love learning about
and seeing the composting
process up close. Bacteria starts
the decomposition process in the
compost bin, followed by other
"helpers," such as roaches, cen-
tipedes, millipedes, pillbugs, bee-
tles, flies (as maggots) and worms.


'3
Id


Spiders and frogs are also com-
mon because they feed on insects
in the pile.
Observing the food
chain that exists within
a compost bin is in-
triguing for kids and
adults.
Composting relies on
four important ingredi-
ents:
1. adequate moisture,
2. aeration (turning
SDurr the pile),
rN 3. "browns" (carbon-
rich materials, like dry
leaves) and _
4. "greens" (nitrogen-rich mate-
rials, like grass clippings and veg-
etable scraps).
Units should be at least 3x 3x 3.
In colder climates, soil bacteria
take a "winter vacation" and their
activity slows significantly.
Florida's mild winters mean that
soil bacteria are "eating away" at
the organic matter in our soil all
year long. Organic matter (leaves,

that has completed the decom-
position process and has com-
pleted the decomposition pro-
cess and has stabilized is called
"compost" or "humus." Humus
is what makes a soil "rich" and
home composting is a great way
to build a healthy, rich soil.
Compost promotes soil fertil-
ity and root growth while creat-
.ing a favorable environment for
nature's "soil builders:" mi-
croorganisms, earthworms and
insects. Some plants like
pines, palmettos, succulents and
cacti are highly adapted to
sandy, nutrient-poor soils, while
other plants like St Augus-
tine grass will benefit greatly
from the addition of compost
As dry conditions persist,
compost is especially useful for
its ability to trap soil moisture
in the root zone where it's
needed. To improve the soil, till
two to three inches of compost
into the top six inches of the
soil, or for established land-
scapes, apply a 1/2 inch top
dressing (even over grass) mul-
tiple times. Increased soil mois-
ture reduces plant water needs
and decreases drought stress.
Compost can be purchased in
bulk for large projects such as
this.

inches of soil are usually cov-
ered, compacted, or so drasti-
cally altered that the biologically
most active part of the tree's root
system cannot function.


Trees need soils with favor-
able relative proportions of
sand, silt and clay to retain
moisture but also drain well. In
addition to proper chemical
balance, they also need some
organic matter to separate soil
particles, encourage good gas
exchange and biological activ-
ity, and enable root penetration.


Spacious 3/2/2 on cul-de-sac in Sugarmill with
immense screened lanai overlooking gorgeous
greenbelt. Xeriscaped for water conservation and
ease of maintenance. $198,000

Organic matter is one of the
topsoil constituents most
quickly lost because of excava-
tion and other soil-disturbing
activities. Topsoil is either re-
moved completely during con-
struction or heavily diluted
with subsoils. Soils altered
drastically by excavation and


construction bear little resem-
blance to soils in forest sand
fields; they are dense, com-
pacted blends of low organic
content and 'are hostile envi-
ronments for transplanted
trees and shrubs.

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


Bring some 'blue' back with bluebird houses


astern blue-
bird, Sialia
sialia, is the
most widespread of
three species of
bluebirds native to
North America. It in-
habits open grass-
lands and woodlands
east of the Rocky
Mountains from Al-

Canadian Maritime
Provinces, south

tana to Texas and Florida and
even into Mexico.
Northern bluebirds migrate
south for winter, swelling resi-
dent populations. They congre-
gate in small groups and are
often seen perched on over-
head wires, wire fences and
wooden posts, watching for in-


sects in the grass
below. Bluebirds
also eat fruit.
Cavity nesters,
bluebirds readily
adapt to breeding in
nest boxes close to
homes. Bluebird
populations seri-
ously declined due to
lack of nest sites as
humans eliminated
dead trees and
wooden fence posts,
and competition


from introduced house spar-
rows and European starlings.
Most gardens with open
lawns could support a family of
Eastern bluebirds if the home-
owners put up a few nest boxes.
Plans are available on the In-
ternet and from the Extension
Service in Lecanto. Contact

Betsy Frank, president of the
Citrus Audubon Society, at 628-
9865 to purchase a nest box at
the next meeting at 7 p.m. the
third Wednesday of each month
at Beverly Hills Lions Club-
house on Civic Circle in Bev-
eily Hills.
Breeding season begins by
mid-February locally, so boxes
must be available before then.
Attach to a freestanding pole
with the box floor 4 to 5 feet
above ground and a predator
guard around the pole to deter
snakes and raccoons. Do not
mount a box meant to attract


bluebirds on a tree, wooden
post or building. Do not attach
a perch below the 1 3/8-inch
entry hole.
Audubon member Mike
Smith of Inverness made more
than 600 boxes. He maintains
and monitors a trail of nest
boxes along State Road 44 west
of Inverness. Smith says fire
ants kill 5 percent of the baby
bluebirds. Smearing grease on
the pole just under the guard
will trap marauding ants.
Master gardener Stead Lott
of Lecanto made more than
9,900 boxes from reusable scrap


wood gleaned from building
sites. Lott donated the boxes to
raise money for 4-H in Citrus
County. Every year, more
breeding boxes are needed for
last year's young.
A cup-shaped nest is usually
made of dry grasses. In my gar-
den, bluebirds sometimes make
a nest of pine needles and line
it with soft grasses. Three to six
blue eggs are laid, one a day,
and incubated after the last is
laid. Monitor and record activ-
ity: Date box occupied, number

show the speckled breast typi-
cal of the thrush family. Two to
four groups of eggs may be laid
a year.
Summer sun can bake the

the box a light color will not

also reflect sunlight and heat.

out overly stressing the nesting
pair. They will not abandon
their babies. Nestlings hatch on
the same day. The parents bring
insects to feed the rapidly grow-
ing brood.
On the 18th day, all fledglings
leave the nest, never to return.
Immediately clean and air out
the box. Spray lightly with
bleach solution to kill lice and
insects. If other cavity nesters
such as chickadees, titmice,
woodpeckers, wrens, starlings


or house sparrows occupy the
box, just put up another one
nearby.
Bluebirds will not allow an-
other bluebird to nest within 80
feet and compete for food.
Space nest boxes about 100 feet
apart. After the nesting season
ends, small brown bats may
roost in the clean, dark box dur-
ing hot summer days. Bats
emerge at dusk to eat hordes of
insects.
Attract and enjoy Eastern
bluebirds by installing a nest
box in your garden.
