from her place in Crystal

The weather was fair.
She felt well.
Her longtime husband,
Jim Powell, was waiting for

As the minutes ticked

The day Bay News 9 came out to Sharon
Karsen's Sugarmill Woods home, the reporter
set up her camera and lights and asked if
Sharon could get a tortoise to come out of its
hole.
Sharon laughed and said, "They're not pets
- they don't come when called." But she got
down on the dirt, dangled a piece of lettuce
and made noises, hoping to entice a gopher
tortoise to appear.
As if on cue, or as if sensing a friend, one

The focus was on farming
at Thursday's meeting of the
Citrus County Economic De-.
velopment Council.
"We must be proactive in
trying to make our commu-
nity better," said Randy
Welker, executive director of
the EDC. "We are made up of
many different citizens to at-
tract investment. One ele-
ment is agriculture."
As Welker introduced EDC
member Dale McClellan, who
operates a large dairy farm in
Lecanto, he said, "We have to
understand what our econ-
omy is and what we need to do
in our community to try to cre-
ate more wealth. Dale's farm
is a creative environment.
They're not doing the things
farmers did in the 1930s. They
are looking at better ways to
do things and using new ways
to help the economy."
McClellan said that according
to the state commissioner of
agriculture, Agriculture is prob-
ably going to become the largest
industry in the state again."


Agriculture is probably going to-become the--
" 1" largest industryin the state again.

.Dale MVIcClellan
Lecanto dairy farmer paraphrasing the state commissioner of agriculture.


McClellan had brought
other farmers to the meeting,
and introduced the speaker,
Andrew Walmsley, assistant
director of agriculture policy
of the Florida Farm Bureau
Federation.
Among several other cur-
rent business issues affecting
agriculture, Walmsley fo-
cused on methane digesters.
, He recently visited Germany
to see methane digesters in
operation.
"These are anaerobic di-
gesters," he said. "You basi-
cally take waste and run it
through the digester and it
makes energy."
He said the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture can offer
world development grants for
the digesters, and Florida
should be interested because
the Florida Public Service
Commission has indicated
that a certain percentage of
energy in Florida has to come


from renewable resources.
"The companies in Ger-
many are itching to come to
the United States as co-in-
dustries," he said.
Walmsley also discussed
the carbon-trading program
for farmers. He said a carbon
credit is the equivalent of one
ton of carbon dioxide.
According to the bureau,
when cropland is minimally
tilled or covered by grass, it is
accumulating "carbon cred-
its" through a process called
carbon sequestration. These
carbon credits, also known as
"offsets" can be leased to po-
tential buyers for a set period
of time. Under terms of the
contract in this program, the
land must remain in continu-
ous no-till, strip-till or grass
for five years.
Carbon credits derived from
agriculture are attractive to
many organizations that are
interested in reducing their


carbon footprint Electric util-
ities, transportation compa-
nies, and state and local
governments or government
agencies are examples of or-
ganizations that buy carbon
offsets. Note, though, that off-
sets can't be used for more
than 50 percent of an organi-
zation's commitment to reduce
its carbon dioxide emissions.
In other business, the
board approved its quarterly
report. It also approved the
niembers appointed to the
transportation planning or-
ganization: Welker, Inverness
City Manager Frank DiGio-
vanni, Crystal River City
Manager Andrew Houston,
Citrus County director of De-
velopment Services Gary
Maidhofand a member of the
Florida Department of
Transportation.
The board also agreed that
the EDC should organize an
economic summit.


Elder Affairs secretary visits Senior Club


Chronicle
The Secretary of the Florida De-
partment of Elder Affairs, E. Douglas
Beach, visited Citrus County late last
week. One of his stops was the Friday
morning Senior Club TV Show at the
new WYKE studio in Lecanto. Beach
fielded phone calls from residents and
discussed the importance of senior
centers with show co-host Cathy Pear-
son and Citrus County Administrator
Anthony Schembri, who was filling in
for absent co-host Brad Thorpe.
Beach emphasized the critical im-
portance of centers in senior's lives in
giving them a chance to socialize and
remain active. He also talked about
state programs funded through the
counties for seniors that are geared to
keeping seniors in their own homes as
long as possible. He urged senior citi-
zens and program supporters to let
their state legislators know how im-
portant it is to keep the funding for
those programs.
Representatives from the Florida
Association of Senior Centers were on
hand and joined with Citrus repre-
sentatives to give Beach a lively cho-
rus of fhe song, "We are Fa-mi-ly,"
which he enjoyed.
Beach also visited'the West Citrus Com-
munity Center, which was packed with
seniors enjoying a country-western band.

Schembri said he was delighted
Beach was seeing what Citrus County
does for its seniors. He said what Cit-
rus Community Support Services is
able to do with money from Elder Af-
fairs was much appreciated and is
crucial to the lives of many county
seniors.
Pearson, the county's Community

Citrus and hit it off with Schembri
right away on the show. "He is a great
advocate for seniors," Pearson said of
Beach and added, "and he was very

She said he intends to come back

Securitization allows utilities
to recover costs when a hurricane
hits by selling bonds. It lessens
the impact on customers and
spreads it out a bit.
Sen. Mike Fasano
R-New Port Richey, about a new bill he plans to file.


The customers' immediate
reaction was crucial to the
utility's decision to cut back
the rates it had just in-
creased, he said.
"If you hadn't reached out,
I don't believe Progress En-
ergy would have cut rates this
week," Fasano said. "Its cus-
tomer base goes beyond Or-
lando, and the pressure was
tremendous."
Fasano also said he had
asked the PSC to support the
rate reduction from March,


rather than waiting until
April.
"I'll file a second bill to cre-
ate a securitization program,
which would be similar to
programs we've already used
in Florida," Fasano said. "Se-
curitization allows utilities to
recover costs when a hurri-
cane hits by selling bonds. It
lessens the impact on cus-
tomers and spreads it out a
bit. That will have a huge re-
duction of the impact you see
today."


Part of the, power bill in-
crease was attributed to the
cost of fuel. Although the
price of fuel came down sig-
nificantly during the past
year, the increase was to
cover the higher cost of fuel
the utility purchased a year
ago.
"You should see more re-
ductions in the future,"
Fasano said.
He also said the power
companies, in making the
fuel cost charge on customer
bills, are getting back what
they paid for and are not
making a profit on the fuel.
Fasano then opened the
meeting to questions from
the audience. One person
wanted to know why the pub-
lic was not warned about the
energy bill passed last year
containing the provision to
allow Progress Energy to
charge customers for precon-
struction costs of the Levy
County plant


Fasano said the public was
not informed because legisla-
tors had not been informed of
the true impact of the provi-
sion. When asked if there
wasn't a public hearing when
a bill could make a large fis-
cal impact, he said there was
not.
The senator also was asked
why state statute allows pre-
construction costs to be re-
covered when the utility may
decide not to build. He
agreed that funding should
be provided with bonds and
that customers should not
have to take the risk.
Finally, an audience mem-
ber asked how legislators
could avoid allowing such a
provision as the one to re-
cover preconstruction costs
from customers to pass
through again.
"It puts us on our toes to
make sure it doesn't happen
again," Fasano said.

ELEVATED
Continued from Page Al

home.
Witnesses said around 4:15
.m. Feb. 15, 2008, they saw
udy's car veer into a median,
then roll into a ditch, become
airborne and land upside
down in a tree.
First-responders found
Judy suspended upside down
in the car; she was wearing
her seatbelt and was con-
scious.
However, Judy has no rec-
ollection of what happened
immediately before, during
or after the crash. She can
only make educated guesses
about the cause of the crash
based on reports. Judy thinks
she might have blacked out
or there was a vehicle mal-
function due to the lack of
skid marks at the scene.
Her first real memory of
the incident is waking up at
Halifax Health Medical Cen-
ter, with relatives from all
over the country around her
hospital bed, and not being
able to feel her legs.
Before the crash
Judy was a full-of-life 65-
year-old mother and grand-
mother on the verge of
retirement after a 22-year
S teaching career at Crystal
River High.School.
She was the director of the
high school's prestigious
Academy of Health Careers
and the 2008 Citrus. County
School District Teacher of
the Year.
About two years before the
crash, Judy and Jim built
their dream home in Day-
tona. The active couple hit
the gym, the ground and the
waves together frequently.
They spent 90 percent of
their time engaging in activi-
ties, including summer surf-
ing in Costa Rica.
Before the sun rose each
day, Judy would often wake
up for a run before school.
She was extremely health-
conscious and fit She had not
faced any major medical is-
- h sues during her lifetime and
didn't even have a go-to pri-
mary care physician.
After the crash
The night of the crash, doc-
tors spent approximately 5
hours surgically inserting a
plate in the front of Judy's
neck and a rod in the back
Judy had suffered a broken
neck from the crash, u ith se-
vere injury to the C5 and C6


He has had to learn a
phenomenal amount. I'm very
proud of him. Jim has me all by
himself on the weekends.

cervical vertebrae.
For weeks, she wore a sur-
gical halo for stabilization, to
prevent head and neck move-
ment. She wasn't able to eat
or speak due to a tra-
cheotomy a surgical open-
ing of her airway through an
incision in the trachea, and
intubation the insertion of
a tube into the opening for
niechanical ventilation, or
machine-dependent breath-
ing.
Judy spent about one
month at Halifax before
being transferred via jet to
the not-for-profit spinal cord
injury specialty hospital
Shepherd Center in Atlanta,
Ga., where she spent the next
two months.
Over the course of the
three months she spent in the,
hospitals, Judy went from
being ventilator-dependent
to oxygen-dependent to only
using a tracheotomy filter,
which provides protection to
her exposed airway and re-
duces secretion retention.
One week before she left
Shepherd, Judy was strong
enough to use her muscles to
breathe on her own and
softly speak
While in the hospitals,
Judy received thousands of
get-well cards from family,
friends, former students, col-
leagues even strangers.
Judy had no idea people
cared about her so much.
Lifetoday
It's 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb.
12, and Tanya Creditt, one of
Judy's caretakers and the
girlfriend of one of Judy's
sons, stretches Judy, mas-
sages her scalp, fixes her
scarf and brushes her hair
Jim pushes Judy's high-
tech wheelchair next to her
hospital bed in their Daytona
home. Jim and Tanya lift
Judy into the chair
"So this is called a sip-n-
puff," Judy says, reverting to
her teaching days.
Judy controls her wheel-
chair movement by blowing
into a straw. She hasn't-fully
mastered the chair yet,' so
Jim stays close by as a guid6


to prevent Judy from going in
-circles.
"He has had to learn a phe-
nomenal amount I'm very
proud of him," Judy, 66, says
of her husband of nearly 40
years. "Jim has me all by him-
self on the weekends."
On weekdays, for four
hours each day, Tanya or a
certified nursing assistant
tend to Judy.
Jim is Judy's primary care-
taker
I He has had to learn how to
insert a tube into Judy to
empty her bladder, suction
mucus and other secretions
out of Judy's still-open air-
way and, more recently, he's
learned to administer an IV,
which delivers antibiotics to
Judy, who is suffering from a
wound on her back caused by
a protruding scapula, the re-
sult of muscle deterioration.
On Monday, Judy will un-
dergo a surgery where doc-
tors will shave down the
scapula bone, she explains,
as Jim opens a door in their
bedroom and reveals an ele-
vator
"We couldn't do it without
the elevator," Judy says.
"I was running out of gas,"
Jim says.
For about six months, Jim,
72, had to carry Judy up the
initial flight, of stairs into
their stilt home and onto the
main floor of their home,
where Judy would remain.
Their bedroom is another
floor up.
Citrus County residents,
led largely in part by Judy's
friend and former colleague
Diane Holmes, raised thou-
sands of dollars to buy and in-
stall 'an elevator so Judy and
Jim would not have to move
out of their dream home.
While fundraisers went on
in the county to benefit Judy,
she often sat in her Daytona


home with tears in her eyes
thinking about all of the hard
work being done on her be-
half, she says.
"When I finally came up
here, I just cried," Judy says
before Jim guides her into
the elevator. "I'm just grateful
for. the people in Citrus
County."
Jim and Judy reappear in
their living room. The phone
rings. Jim is on and off the
phone wfiith hospital and in-
surance personnel for the
next hour.
Meanwhile, Tanya is busy
doing house chores. She
brings over a cup of water to
Judy and asks her to sip some
out of a straw.
In between- calls, Jim re-
minds Judy to tilt her chair
every half hour to shift her
weight to take pressure off
her tailbone.
"The weight shifts are crit-
ical," Jim says. Shifting also
prevents pressure sores on
the skin.
Judy can move her head
and shoulders. She has slight
movement in her arms, but
no functional ability. PIogres-
sively, from the shoulders
down, she has little to no feel-
ing.
"They feel like big wooden
blocks," Judy says of her
hands. "I can't even get them
up to scratch my nose."
It's the use of her hands
she misses the most
Helping hands
Even in her darkest hours.
Judy says, she finds herself
smiling through. She's been
an upbeat person most of her
life.
"She's the most amazing
woman I believe I've ever
met," Tanya says. .
That's not to say Judy does
n6t have her moments, or
"five-minute breakdowns."
But those come mainly out of
frustration, not anger.
She's never been angry
about the crash, she says.
She's never spent time won-
dering., "Why me?" For Judy,
such thoughts are a waste of
energy.
"I'm not mad at God," Judy
says. "He didn't cause it." .
To keep her spirits. high,
Judy regularly turns on the

television to listen to her fa-
vorite preachers. She's also
made friends with fellow
churchgoers, who cook meals
for Judy and Jim and lend
their support in many other
ways.
"I haven't adjusted as well
to it as she has," Jim says.
"She's amazing. She's a lot
stronger than I am emotion-
ally."
Jim does everything in his
power to make life better for
Judy; he's purchased a hand-
icapped-accessible van, the
hospital bed and a comfort-
able mattress and 'a state-of-
the-art air purifier.
He sleeps nextto her in his
own bed and reads to Judy at
night.
Jim hasn't surfed since the
crash, Judy says. Part of the
reason is that he doesn't have
enough time for himself; the
other part is that he hasn't
been able to bring himself to
go surfing without her.
"I know the first time is
going to be very emotional for
me," Jim says.
Judy has been back to the
beach once since the crash.
Jim drove her there to see the
ocean ahd the surfers.
."Tears were just rolling
down my face because I
thought, 'I'll never do this
again,"' Judy says, thinking
about her beloved passion as
a lone tear falls down her
cheek
Jim jumps up to grab a tis-
sue and gently pats his wife's
face.
"I don't laugh as much as I
used to," Judy says.
Searching for purpose
Life is no longer full of


belly laughs and active out-
ings, Judy admits. It's beyond
difficult to find the silver lin-
ing.
"They've been handed an
awful lot," Tanya says.
"They're strong together"
Judy and Jim have hopes
for the future. They look for-
ward to the day Judy's mus-
cles grow strong enough to
allow her to remove her own
throat secretions and no
longer require the tra-
cheotomy.
"That would make my life a
lot easier," Judy says. She is
unable to go in water, such as
a pool or shower, due to the
open airway
Judy hopes for more mobil-
ity in her arms and hands, al-
though the doctors have not
said. anything to fuel that
hope.
"They don't expect it, but I
do," Judy says, acknowledg-
ing it would take a small mir-
acle.
She hasn't given up on the
thought of one day feeding
herself.
Judy wants. to eventually
see an occupational thera-
pist, who would help her
work with or around her
physical limitations to partic-
ipate the best she could in
everyday life.
She's on a mission to find
her new purpose in life, to
teach out to others although
she may not be able to physi-
cally reach.- She's thought
about teaching children or
adults how to read.
"That was always impor-
tant to me, that I make a dif-
ference every day," Judy says.

POSTSCRIPT
Continued from Page Al

had her heart and soul into
it," said Hank Karsen, her
husband of 45 years.
"I always went to all the
meetings with her," he said.
"She belonged to everything
- the New Jersey Animal
Rights, the Sierra Club, the
Farm Sanctuary. We'd do fur
protests together -we'd have
so much fun. Abig group of us
would wear fake furs and put
red paint on and walk into
Macy's, and they'd have
guards following us all over.
"We'd have signs: 'Fur
kills.' We went all the way to,
Pennsylvania to protest a
pheasant kill. We had such a
massive protest people
bolted their hands together
in the middle of the road and
people couldn't get out After
that year they never had it
again," he said.
Although Sharon was born
in California and lived in
New Jersey for much of her
life, she grew up in Tampa.
She met Karsen while he was
attending the University of
Tampa. She was a dental hy-,
gienist, and lived in the same
building as Karsen on Davis
Island.
They dated for about six

School and Dunnellon Ele-
Smentary School. ,


months until Karsen got a
teaching job back in New Jer-
sey. The following summer,
he called and asked if she
wanted to visit. She went for
two weeks and helped him in
his summer job delivering
milk. That's when he pro-
posed.
They married that fall, Oct.
3,1964, and remained in New
Jersey for the next 33 years,
where they owned a gym.
"Our first child died real
young, and that was a bad,
bad experience," Karsen
said. "But we were fortunate
to have two more boys after
that"
In New Jersey, they built a
house in the mountains on
the Appalachian Trail.
Sharon loved the seclusion
and being surrounded by nat-
ural wildlife, even the pesky
deer that ate their plants.
.They built a deer feeder as a
deterrent, and every day at 4
p.m. 15 or 20 deer would
come and eat, which Sharon
loved.
Sharon volunteered at
local animal shelters and
adopted dozens of stray cats.
She and her husband then
moved to Florida, first to Sug-
armill Woods and then to a
10-acre plot of land she
named "Tierra De Las Tortu-
gas" ("land of the tortoises"),


The same format and infor-
mation has been presented at
each location. Residents
have opportunity to offer say-,
ings ideas in writing and via
e-mail. Yancey and school
board members will consider
these suggestions to deter-
mine the 2009-10 budget.
The meeting will also be a
call to action for residents to
contact their legislators con-
cerning the budget cuts to


where she and her husband
built a home.
Two wooden gopher tor-
toises flank the front en-
trance atop the gate.
After moving to Citrus
County, Sharon fell in love -
with the manatees and go-
pher tortoises.
"Every weekend for six
straight years we went out on
the Homosassa River, volun-
teering," Karsen said. "She'd
make bagels and butter and
coffee and we'd go to Na-
ture's Resort and paddle (our
canoe) out into the blue wa-
ters and drift for four or five
hours."
One time, Sharon was by
herself, and a manatee hit
her canoe with its tail and al-
most tipped her over.
"She was so excited about
that," Karsen said. "She kept
saying, 'It was awesome!'"
But as much as she loved
the manatee, it was the go-
pher tortoise that fueled her
strongest passion for activism
here in Florida. She became
a force to be reckoned with,
especially with the home-
builders in Sugarmill Woods,
hating. how bulldozers en-
tombed the tortoises in their
burrows. She started a volun-
teer organization that moves
tortoises from properties
scheduled for development.


public education.
"Attendance has been
building at the town hall
meetings," said Christian.
"We had 350 last night at
North Marion."
In Dunnellon the public
schools have been getting out
the word. The town hall meet-
ing will be from 6 to 8 p.m.
Thursday at the middle school.
Christian said that unlike
some other districts in the


"Sharon was a driving
force behind protecting go-
pher tortoises in Sugarmill
Woods, and one of the main
.reasons we started the Go-
pher Tortoise Conservation
Initiative," said Ray Ashton,
Jr., president of the Ashton
Biodiversity Research and
Preservation Institute in
Newberry, Fla.
"She was a lot of fun and
one of those with passion and
drive," he said.
In-a letter he wrote Sharon
before she died, he told her
she made the world a better
place.
"You have encouraged
more people than you know
about taking care of their tor-
toises," he wrote. "You
pushed me and others to
work day after day in trying
to be sure that the tortoise
and all the habitat and
wildlife that goes with them
will be here hundreds of
years after our passing. ,
"Most important, on top of
all the hard work you put in
and the encouragement you
have given, you are a beauti-
ful person. Many people
know this and they will re-
member you, for the better
world you have made," he
wrote.
Sharon personally saved
the lives of hundreds of go-
pher tortoises, Karsen said.


state, there are no immediate
teacher layoffs planned.
"Unless there are more
outs, those teachers will have
jobs through the end of this
year," he said, "I'm sure many
will reapply for other open-
ings." Those would be posi-
tions that become available
with retirements and resigna-
tions.
Pat Faherty is the editor of
the Riverland News.


"She'd dig a five-gallon
bucket hole in front of the
tortoise hole, put the bucket
in it below ground level,
cover the top with a light
piece of paper and sprinkle
dirt on it," Karsen said.
"When the tortoise comes out
of its hole, it doesn't see (the
other hole) and falls into the
bucket.
"Since it can't get out of the
bucket, you have to con-
stantly check on it," he said.
And Sharon constantly
checked on scores of holes.
"She loved it," Karsen said.
"Even in the dead heat of
summer, and she got other
people involved."
"She was one of a kind,"
said friend and fellow activist
Isabell Stawicki. "I liked her
so much. She was caring and
compassionate, a good per-
son and really cared about
animals. She always cared
about my animals and asked
about them, even as she was
dying."
"We worked together on
various organizations, but
there was definitely a friend-
ship with her," said another
friend Janet Masaoy. "She


was very knowledgeable
about native plants and birds
and wildlife, and she was as
pretty inside as she was out-
side."
In her spare time, Sharon
loved reading Anne Rice,
Patricia Cornwell, Jodi Pi-
coult. She liked watching
hospital shows on TV -
"Grey's Anatomy," "E.R." and
"House."
"She always said she
would've loved to have been
a nurse," Karsen said.
Although they vacationed
in Mexico and the exotic
Caribbean, Sharon preferred
her own private gopher tor-
toise preserve in Homosassa.
"She loved walking
through the woods, discover-
ing animal footprints,"
Karsen said. "She was always
laughing. She was tremen-
dously strong.
"Her life was family and
the kids, and she never real-
ized how many people she af-
fected," he said.
"She made a lasting im-
pression, and I will never for-
get the 45 years I had with
her."

Number (
F ive. To save a few bil-
lion a year, the post of-
fice is thinking of
cutting mail service down
from six days a week to five.
A few billion? Let's just make
it every other day,
and save a few
more billion. I'm
trying to think of a
single piece of
mail I've gotten
that was so impor-
tant it couldn't
have come a day
later without
changing my life.
The phone bill
came on Thursday ,
instead of Wednes- MUE
day? Heads will
roll! The fifth L.L. Bean cata-
log of the month comes a-day
late? How should I vent my
outrage? I needed that Cana-
dian blanket coat yesterday!
Oh, the humanities.
aI don't know if the people
S . at the post office have heard
about it, but there's this new
technology (if "new" meant
40 years old) called e-mail.
It's like regular mail except it
moves at the speed of light
and you don't need a stamp,
r - - and it's faster, better and
cheaper

providers that helps a lot when you pos-
itively, absolutely must get a
... message to someone right
* away. It's called a telephone.
- I've heard they're easy to use
S- and it's almost as if the per-
son you are talking to is in the
room with you. I predict that,
someday, almost everyone
* will have one.
Eight I heard that a
.. ... woman who had octuplets al-
S -. *-. ready had six small children
S. at home. My mother had
eight children. So did Sue's
S mother But not all on the
same day They both man-
S - aged to stretch it out over
couple of decades.
S Then the older kids could
help out with the younger
o ones; it was a system that
worked, (except for all the
.- fighting for attention, the
- hand-me-downs, the teasing,
the cruel tricks we would


punching
play on one another, the
years and years of intense
psychological ... but I digress
...) in the era of big families
and stay-at-home moms. One
of our neighbors had 13 chil-
dren. They named
the last one Os-
mond Jr. We fig-
ured they had run
out of names. It
was also the long-
gone era of names,
too. Bob, Jim,
Mike, Joe, Betty,
Pat, Susie. Now if
you name a kid
| Bob, you have to
spell it funny, like
LLEN Bhobb, or the kid
will go through life
traumatized because he's not
unique. I can't prove it, but
something tells me more
Bhobbs end up in therapy
than Bobs.
One trillion: When did you
first hear that word? When
Carl Sagan, the famous as-
tronomer used to say "bil-
lions and billions" that
seemed to be pretty much the
highest you could go. Then
came a gazillion, but that just
meant "a lot." I think I was
about 30 when I first heard "a
trillion." But a trillion means
something.
What was the biggest lot-
tery prize ever? $430 million.
A lot of millions, right? A bil-
lion is 1,000 million, more
than twice as much. You'd
have to work very hard to
spend a billion dollars. If you
bought a new $100,000 luxury
car every day, it would take
you 27 years to spend $1 bil-
lion. It would get boring. War-
ren Buffet has something like
$50 billion. He must be bored
to death. Congress just de-
bated a near trillion-dollar
stimulus bill. I hope it works.
What scares me, though, is
that I might start hearing a
new word. What's the word
for 1,000 trillion?

Panthers fall in final

Lecanto's Addison Holstein goes up for a shot Saturday night against a West Port defender in the District 4A-6 final at Citrus High School.

West Port gets better ofLecanto, 83-72, in District 4A-6 championship


ALAN FESTO

It was a Valentine's Day the Lecanto
Panthers would certainly like to forget
Looking for its fourth straight District
4A-6 title in as many years, the Lecanto
boys basketball team came up short Sat-,
urday night, falling, 83-72, to the West Port
Wolf Pack
"Obviously we wanted to win a fourth
one, but the target has been big the last
two years," Lecanto coach Chris Nichols
said. "It says a lot for our program that


West Port breaks through against us."
West Port's size, length and athleticism
were apparent right from the start as was
the nature of its physical play. Those at-
tributes would prove crucial, particularly
on the boards where the Wolf Pack (21-6
overall) dominated.
West Port had a two-to-one rebounding
advantage on the night and Lecanto strug-
gled shooting from the floor, hitting only 35
percent of its shots.
"They rebounded better than we shot,
that's the bottom line," Nichols said.
West Port shot the ball at a 40 percent
clip but did most of its damage at the free-


throw line where it knocked down 28-of-
45. Lecanto hit 10-of-15 from the line.
Lecanto got off to a good start in taking
an early 3-0 lead following a 3-pointer
from Stephen Buckley in the opening
minute. It wasn't long, however, before
West Port's Marquis Scott began to take
over. The Wolf Pack got their first lead at 4-
3 with 5:12 to play in the opening quarter
and never trailed the rest of the way.
The Panthers' Addison Holstein tied
things up at 20 in the second quarter, but
about a minute later Holstein was called

PALM COAST The Citrus Hurricanes'
wrestling dynasty rested on the shoulders of a
freshman.
The 'Canes' John Dreggars knew heading
into the match what was at stake. This match
would decide the regional title. But the first-
year varsity wrestler, in the night's final match,
seemed completely unfazed. It didn't seem to
bother the 230 heavyweight in the least that he
was giving up 65 pounds to the Avon Park sen-
ior Christian Grimmett.
Citrus led by five

technical loss by
Dreggars and the
Hur nUfgbs' run of'
consecutive regional
championships would end at
three and give Avon Park the victory. A major'
decision would tie the meet and a decision,
even in a loss by Dreggars (worth only five
points) would give Citrus its fourth straight re-
gional championship.
And that, in the end, is exactly what hap-
pened.
Dreggars avoided a pin in the second period
and lost a 6-4 decision to the senior, giving the
Hurricanes a 128-127 Class 1A-Region 2 title
over Avon Park at Matanzas High School on
Saturday night
"What can you say about Johnny? He's my
freshman phenom. That's just incredible what
he did out there just now," Citrus head coach
Mike Porcelli said. '"And then there's Craig

LARRY BUGG
For the Chronicle
NEW PORT RICHEY In her last shot at a
state weightlifting title, Lecanto's Summer Du-
pler finished seventh at the Florida High
School Activities Association State Meet at
River Ridge High School.
She tied with Venice's Kara Dooling for sixth
place but Dooling took the medal because she
weighed less than Dupler.
The senior had a 285-pound total. She had a
155-pound bench press and a 130-pound clean
and jerk
Dupler expected to do better.
"There were a lot of nerves," Lecanto coach
Bob LeCours said of Dupler's performance.
"I'm still proud of her.
Citrus' Ali Rawls lifted in the unlimited
class. She had a bench press of 175 pounds and
a clean and jerk of 160 for a total of 335.
"It was very fun," she said. "I got a personal
record for clean and jerk It was crazy (lifting at
state). I'll be back next year."
She ended up in a four-way tie for 10th
place.
"Ali did well," said Citrus High coach Doug
Patton.
Citrus' Jessica Goodfellow was lifting in the
169-pound class. She had a 145-pound bench
and a 125-pound clean and jerk She is a jun-
ior and she was making her second run at state.
Goodfellow was tied for 16th in her weight

lead of 63-58.
Tucker Cortese made it in-
teresting with a deep three-
pointer to cut the lead to two

for state's next week," Barker
said. "It feels great to end on
a good note as a four-time re-
gional champ. This has defi-
nitely been a good night"
As for an emotional Dreg-
gars, the competitor inside of
him was disappointed he lost,
but. the teammate was
thrilled.
"I'm upset right now,"
Dreggars admitted. "I wanted
to win. I should have won.
But I'm glad that we won re-
gion as a team."
In addition to Barker, Cit-
rus County walked away with
two more individual regional
titles. At 103, Crystal River's
David Vreeland won a 7-1 de-'
cision over Matt Watson and
Lecanto's Steven Struble
won a 3-1 decision over Her-
nando's Max Morrill in the
145 title match.
For Crystal River's Vree-
land, this is only his second
first place win ever His
first official, title came last
week in the district tourna-
ment.

for an intentional foul that
seemed to swing the momen-
tum in the Wolf Pack's favor.
The play sparked a 19-6 run
for West Port to end the half
as it built a 40-26 lead.
Scott scored 12 of the 19
points on his way to an 18
pint first-half performance.
He finished with a game high
30 points.
The Panthers (16-5 overall)
kept the game from getting
away in the second half but
couldn't get enough stops or
rebounds to pose a serious
threat Lecanto got as close as
eight in the fourth quarter as
Nick Cortes tried to carry the
load and bring his team back
The senior guard scored 16 of
his team high 24 points in the
fourth quarter.
Cortes struggled most of
the night, hitting 11-of-36
from the field and 1-of-8 from
beyond the arc.
"We spent two days work-
ing on what we would do with
him (Cortes) in the last four
minutes," Livengood said.


Andrew Gage and Ty Com-
mons scored a team-high 16
points for Seven Rivers. Both
Gage and Commons i each
pulled down eight rebounds.
The Warriors came out red
hot in the first five minutes of
the game and held a 10-3 lead
behind six straight points by
Gage to start Seven Rivers'
scoring and an offensive put-
back and jumper by Com-
mons.
Meadowbrook over-
whelmed the Warriors on the
inside with Smith and, as a
result, came back to tie the
game twice in the second
quarter before a 10-0 run by
the Mustangs turned a 17-15
Warriors' advantage into a 25-
17 lead for Meadowbrook

at region to qualify for state,"
Vreeland said. "I'm going
there next week as region
champ so I'm expecting a lot
more out of myself. My goal
next week is most definitely
to place (in the top six)."
The only other regional
title holder, Struble, com-
peted in one of the night's
most anticipated matches
against his childhood friend
and longtime competitor.
"We wrestled against each
other three times this year
and this was the biggest mar-
gins of victory, two points.
The first two times, I only
beat him by one," Struble
said. "We've grown up to-
gether. We used to go to the
same school. Last year I
broke my shoulder and didn't
even make district's and now
I'm a regional champ. It has-
n't really sunk in yet"
In all, nine wrestlers will
be representing Citrus
County in next week's state
tournament in Lakeland. The
lone representative from
Crystal River is Vreeland, the
regional champion at 103.
Joining Lecant's& 145 'ire-i-
gional champion Struble are
Angelo Arcadipane, who fin-
ished fourth at 130, and Sam
Areadipane, who finished
third at 135. The regional
champions Citrus will be
sending five wrestlers in all.
In addition to their two re-
gional title finalists, Barker
and Dreggars, they had three
third place finishers: Chris
Toles (130), David Zuckley
(160) and Aaron Zuckley (189).
"We're happy for the vic-
tory," Porcelli admitted. "I
would have liked to have sent
more guys. But we've got
something special here. This
is a transition year and we
still did this well. We did great
and I wouldn't expect any less
from this group of guys.'


in the 101-pound class. She
had 105-pound lifts in both
the bench press and the
clean and jerk. She finished
in 14th place.
"I've been working really
hard all week," said
Branch. "I did really good.
Today wasn't my day. This is
my third (trip to state). It's
been fun."

"Luckily we were able to get
a couple of missed shots by
him.
"The kid is a phenomenal
player and it seems like the
deeper in the game it gets the
better he gets."
Cortes received some help
from Buckley who scored 17
points and hit three 3-point-
ers in the fourth quarter. The
balance of West Port, how-
ever, was just too great to
overcome.
The Wolf Pack had four
players in double figures led
by Scott. Rod Washington
scored 17, John McNair had
12 and Markee Teal had 15
points and a game high 19 re-
bounds
"That was huge," Liven-
good said of Teal's perform-
ance. "He was an absolute
beast on the boards."
With the loss Lecanto's task
won't get any easier when it
heads up to St Augustine (18-
9 overall) on Thursday for the
opening round of the Class
4A regional playoffs. The two
teams have faced off that past
two years in the playoffs with
the Yellow Jackets winning
last year's game in the Sweet
16, West Port will host Nease.

The future of the Supreme Court


With the announce-
ment about the
health problems of
Supreme Court Justice Ruth
Bader Ginsburg, it may be
time to look at the Supreme
Court and what may happen
in the next several years.
The Democrats in the Sen-
ate are in great shape: they
have 58 votes counting
Bernie Sanders of Vermont
and Joe Lieberman of Con-
necticut
The election in Minnesota is
being contested, but the odds
are that Al Franken, the De-
mocrat, will eventually win the
Senate seat You add to that
the potential of some of the
more moderate to liberal Re-


publicans voting with the De-
mocrats, and the Democrats
have a good chance, assuming
they hold all their
own, of being able
to cut off debate (60
votes). This would
take away the only ',
weapon the Repub-
licans have, the fili-
buster. The
Judiciary Commit-
tee will have no
problem moving Lou
any nominee that OTI
President Obama
sends up through VOl
the committee to
the floor of the Senate.
The two judges who are
most likely to leave in the

next several years are Justice
Ginsburg, now in her mid-70s,
and John Paul Stevens, in his
late 80s. A 2003 sta-
F:H tistical analysis of
Supreme Court
voting patterns
showed that Judge
9 Stevens was the
most liberal judge
and Judge Gins-
I burg was the sec-
ond most liberal
Frey judge. As a practi-
IER cal matter, no mat-
ter who President
DES Obama appoints if
those openings
come about, it will be difficult
to find more liberal judges.
Let's look at the judges on


the Supreme Court:
Chief Justice John G.
Roberts Jr. was appointed by
President George W Bush,
and took his seat Sept. 29,
2005. He was born on Jan. 27,
1955.
Associate Justice
John Paul Stevens was ap-
pointed by President Ford,
and took his seat Dec. 19,
1975. He was born on April
20,1920.
Associate Justice
Antonin Scalia was ap-
pointed by President Reagan,
and took his seat Sept. 20,
1986. He was born on March
11, 1936.
Associate Justice Anthony
M. Kennedy was appointed


by President Reagan, and
took his seat Feb. 18, 1988. He
was born on July 23, 1936.
Associate Justice
David Hackett Souter was
born Sept. 17, 1939. He was
appointed by President Bush
(41) on Oct 9, 1990.
Clarence Thomas,
associate justice, born on
June 23, 1948, was nominated
by President Bush (41) and
took his seat on Oct. 23, 1991.
Ruth Bader Gins-
burg, associate justice, was
born on March 15, 1933. She
was appointed by President
Clinton and took her seat
Aug. 10, 1993.
See FREY/Page C3


Don't be so

surprised
County Commissioner
Joe Meek is trying to
raise the awareness of
fellow board members and
the general public that tax
dollars are going to be hard to
come by later this year.
Meek, the first-term com-
missioner, has repeatedly
asked that the county staff
begin to plan for the in-
evitable government is
going to be smaller next year
because there will be fewer
dollars available.
The assessed value of
property in Citrus County
will drop between 10 and 20
percent this year. When the
assessed value of property
goes down, the tax dollars it
generates also go down.
Take your average $100,000
home in Citrus County taxed
at a rate of 16 mills (a mill of
tax equals $1 for every $1,000
in value). If the homeowner
had a $25,000 homestead ex-
emption his 2008 tax bill
would have been $1,200
($75,000 times 16 mills).
If that home loses 15 per-
cent of its value and can only
be taxed at $60,000 ($85,000
home minus the $25,000
homestead), then the tax bill
at the same millage rate of 16
would drop to $960.
That's a tax decrease of
$240 for a single household.

Mabel does

not need to

be depressed
t wasn't funny, but it was.
The day after our pub-
lisher asked our editing
team to steer clear of crime
stories that have little bear-
ing on Citrus County, the fol-
lowing state news items were
offered by The Associated
Press:
NO GAS ROBBERY -
Authorities say they've ar-
rested an Englewood East
man who apparently forgot to
fill up when he was robbing a
gas station.
FAKE DRUMMER AR-
REST Authorities say a
transient man convinced a
New Port Richey woman that
he was the drummer for the
rock band Foreigner, stole
her Corvette and then
crashed it
STOLEN PLANTS -Au-
thorities say a Bradenton
man stole three exotic plants
from a city median, planning
to sell them for beer money
While these stories weren't
exactly typical of the types of
items we'd discussed the day
before, they weren't far off.
However, there was a "Hey,
Mabel" value to them that
was undeniable.
Who's Mabel?
You are. I am. That guy who
just drove by your house is.
"Mabel" is anybody who
has had someone share a tid-
bit from the newspaper that
caught their attention; in the
hypothetical case of Mabel,
it's her newspaper-reading
husband.

Kudos and thanks
I'm sitting here doing my taxes.
Thought I had all the documents in
front of me. Turned out I did not
have the documents that showed
how much I paid in property taxes
for 2008. I went all over my docu-
ments, I went online to the property
appraiser's Web site and the tax
collector's Web site. I spent about
an hour just looking for this stuff,
driving myself crazy. Finally I
picked up the phone and I called
the tax collector. The tax collector
was very helpful, gave me the infor-
mation that I needed and was very
friendly. I told them what I ,
had been going through t
trying to find this informa- 0
tion and that, "I'm sorry, I
finally had to call," and
they said, "Well, I'm glad
you did." I don't know what
the customer service was
like before, but I do know
what it's like now. It's what
I would expect from a Cit- CA0
rus County agency -, nice, C
friendly, great place to live. 000"


Cart cruiser
I am calling about the golf cart
incident that was in the paper about
someone complaining about golf
carts being on streets. Well, in my
neighborhood I live down off,
East Pike in East Cove it's a quiet
neighborhood and 1 take my kids
out on the golf carts. I go and pick
up my son at the bus stop when it's
a nice day or just to take him for a
ride. My 18-month-old daughter
loves to go for a ride on our golf
cart and I don't understand why it's
such a problem for people to see us
go out on a.golf cart and having a
good day. Now if you're going down
the wrong way and causing a dis-
traction, I can understand that. But
if you're out in a neighborhood and
taking your kids for a ride, I don't
understand the problem. -
Scads of speeders
I want to know where the sheriff's
at out here on Gospel Island. This is
like the Citrus County Speedway or
the Indianapolis Motor Speedway,
driving fast, fast, fast. They ain't got
no sense of the speed. We need
state troopers out here and we
need about three or four sheriff's
(deputies) to start ticketing these
crazy people.
LUfesavers
I wanted to call in and give a cou-
ple of kudos to a couple people.
Yesterday I was in my local gym


.
.(


and a gentleman passed out and
actually was going into what was
heart failure and I watched two of
the employees Kelly and I believe
her name is Anna just jump into
lifesaving mode. These ladies were
extraordinary. They just kind of
took over the situation and got the
paramedics there, aided the gentle-
man, were able to revive him and
keep him alert and aware. And I
just think that this gentleman
should be very thankful that he had
a couple of really special people
there who were obviously experi-
enced and very levelheaded in an
extremely tense situation. So heads
up to you, ladies. I think
UND you did a great job.
Making the rounds
Dick Cheney is making
the rounds of talk radio
and continues to echo the
lies and scare tactics the.
Bush administration.has
used tojustify its illegal
Sections. He should be
79 careful. The American peo-
0 pie are fed up and if he
wants to avoid being tried
as a war criminal for the actions of
his administration, he should just
keep his mouth shut.


Blame game
I'm calling for the person that
called Sound Off blaming Bush
about Sept. 11. He's saying the ter-
rorists knew about it five days be-
fore it happened. Uh, hello, why -
don't you blame Clinton? He knew
about it for years before it hap-
pened and chose not to do anything
about al-Qaida even though we'd
been attacked a couple of times.
You know, you guys just want to
hate Bush, that's all. You've just got
your mind made up. Go right ahead.
'People that know history, know what
really happened. You can twist it the
way you want it to be and, you
know, just because you say it's so,
you think we're going to believe you?
Rubber fingers
I enjoy watching "The Citrus
County Court" on Channel 16 every
night, but I was wondering if some-
body could please give those eld-
erly gentlemen that help pass out
the papers a rubber finger or else
some kind of sticky stuff they
could put on their hands. They lick
their thumbs in their mouths and
then hand out the papers to the
people that are supposed to sign
them. That is disgusting. Please
give them some rubber fingers.


Job well done
To: The Honorable Janice A. War-
ren, Citrus County tax collector:
On behalf of the Citrus County Vet-
erans Foundation and the county's
veterans community, please accept
my sincere appreciation for your
continued support through your
service on our board of directors and
your commitment to use your good
offices each November to support
the foundation's annual fundraising
drive in partnership with The Mili-
tary Order of the Purple Heart.
Thanks to your enthusiastic
leadership and the devoted sup-
port of your staff, particularly
Cindy Chiodo, Kathy Claffey,
Karen Tapper and Sheri Walley,
your offices accounted for a major
share of funds raised in our 2008
campaign, collecting $6,184.57 in
donations. You and your staff can
take great pride and satisfaction
knowing your efforts will enable
the foundation to continue to pro-
vide immediate emergency finan-
cial assistance to needy Citrus
County veterans and eligible sur-
viving spouses of veterans.
The community spirit and patri-
otism so graciously and enthusiasti-
cally exhibited by the Citrus County
Tax Collector's Office is commend-
able and deeply appreciated by all
the citizens of this county and espe-
cially its military veterans. Thank
you all for a job well done.

Watching our officials
With people all over the United
States jobless due to the economic
climate, why is GeoffGreene firing
people in the appraisers office and
putting new people (friends) in? We
do not vote an individual into office
so that they can take the livelihood
away from county employees who
have a wealth of experience. Ships
sink without the best crew aboard.
People are trying to keep roofs
over their heads and food on their
table. The people Geoff Greene is
putting in are financially stable and
he wants to pay them more at the
expense of longtime employees?
Wake up, Citrus County. Our
county is in crisis. People are living
in tents, losing their homes, busi-
nesses are closing and our politi-
cians are bringing in new people
and airing their troubles publicly.
Grow up and talk to each other
Also, I think GeoffGreene needs to


resign his position. Saving money
at the expense of loyal longtime
employees: investigate him.
While I'm on my tirade, a new
county commissioner thinks that
privatizing is the answer to saving
money. Better look harder into this
issue before making changes. Pri-
vatizing can create more problems
and expenses.
Citrus County citizens, please
take a more concerted interest in
our elected officials. They were
elected to serve us, the voters.

Post office woes
We hear the post office crying
poormouth again, obviously setting
the stage for another gut punch on '
our first class mailing rates.
Strange that for every pound of
first-class mail most of us receive,
some 10 pounds of junk mail
scrunches our mailboxes.
Understand though, junk mail is
precisely the very road to post of-
fice financial solvency. Junk mailer
rates are currently priced at a small
fraction of what we pay to mail a
utility payment Case in point, I
have an oversized junk mailer that
indicated 5 cents postage.
Does not the plausible solution
lie in propping up those rates five-
or sixfold? Media merchants won't
stop their mailings because the
post office is their only channel of
delivery to stay in business
(wretched as some of them are).
Duh!

As they

When I get to heaven,
one of the first
things I want to do is
find my mother, and when I
find her, I'm going to apolo-
gize.
Old people are wont to
complain about their ail-
ments; and, quite frankly,
when I was younger, I had lit-
tle empathy for such things. It
isn't that I didn't believe my
mother was the victim of all
sorts of maladies, but, I had
little understanding of her
dilemmas.
She found it frustrating
when tremors caused her to
drop food from a fork or spill
a drink from a cup. I always

was no pain in this process at
all, but at others it brought
moans of agony to my lips and
tears to my eyes.
Taking a seat was an adven-
ture. Sort of like a cat surveying
a litter box, I'd walk from side
to side until eventually I felt
that I could bend my knees and
place my backside on the chair
without excruciating pain.
What's the point?
As a young person, I had
little compassion for the com-
plaints of old folks, but, now
that I'm experiencing them
myself, there are three things
of which I'm sure:
I will learn to cope with
tremors, sciatica and what-


ever else comes along;
I will complain to my chil-
dren and anyone else in
earshot; and,
When I get to heaven, I will
make it a point to apologize
to my mother for showing her
less than sufficient sympathy.
As they say, what goes
around, comes around, but, I
take comfort in knowing that
when I find my mother in
heaven, neither of us will
ever again suffer from
tremors or sciatica!

Sound OFF


Nothing for nothing
Once again our school district has not re-
ceived the funds from our contribution for
communications and technology. May I sug-
gest a change? Rather than continue collect-
ing money, the contributions cease until all
back payments are collected. This costs the
school district nothing since that is what they
are getting now.
Help America
I'm a veteran and I find a hard time getting
help in Lecanto and Gainesville, but this is
what I really want to say: It's because they're
making a big fuss up in Washington. They're
knocking this down and knocking this down
and fighting over one another, Republicans
" and Democrats. Let's just face it. You're
American. Forget the Democrats, Republi-
' cans and all the other parties. Be American.
Help the veterans, the ones like myself. I get
no help from them at all. I called the con-
gresswoman and told them...
Privileges
I just saw today on the news, an article or
item about a dog that was almost starved to
death. The people who had the dog were told
that they could no longer own a dog, they
could no longer own fish, cats or any other
animal. What I would like to know is, how
come a person who beats his wife is allowed
Sto return to the house and have another wife?
Why are animal rights so much more impor-
tant than rights of people who are beaten up
by other people? These people face jail. My
ex-husband did not. He was released.
Blue
SAll you people who are hurting because of
this recession, which is darned near a de-
pression, just remember the Republicans are
trying to destroy the bill to put money out
there and get us out of the hole that we're in.
We need that stimulus bill very bad, but the
Republicans don't seem, to think so. So when
you go to the polls to vote again the next
time there are voting machines there ready
for you, you do not vote Republican if you
, want to save your life, because our lives are
at stake.
What about Americans?
Hey, Obama, I'm an American veteran of
Vietnam. What are you and all the rest up in
Washington going to do about the problems
that we have of all the foreigners coming to
our country buying all the businesses, driving
all foreign vehicles from Mercedes to
Lexuses? What about the Americans? When
are we going to get a break and own some-
thing? Koreans got the west coast, Iraqis got
Michigan, Indians have Florida and 90 per-
cent of the country. We Americans are very
last. I think you guys have got to start looking
at this in Washington. This is wrong. You're
putting us down and giving them the keys to
the cities.
Sacrifice

Before Citrus County goes ahead and lays
off more workers, perhaps the administrator
and all the county employees especially
staff members could take a 10 percent
pay cut. That certainly would help the county.
Gentle reminder
I have one question and it's something
that's been bothering me for a long time and
I just can't figure it out. Why are the Republi-
cans on the wrong side of everything? Why
do they vote on the wrong side of everything
everything? You people call up and say
how great George Bush was and, you know,
why people didn't like George Bush, and that

mean, I could go into a litany of things that
George Bush did that was bad. And if they

done to them but the Democrats kept them
from doing: it was to put their Social Security
in the stock market, OK? I mean that's what
the Republicans wanted to do, and they prob-
ably still want to do it.
Disappointing
*Property Appraiser Geoff Greene has dis-
played poor judgment by firing 13 trained
and educated staff. Much county time and
money has been spent cross training these
13, only to be replaced by his (people) with
no knowledge of Florida-specific statutes per
tax assessment and appraisal. Mr. Greene is
a disappointment.
Representation, not oppression
Having been a union member for well over
25 years, we believe thatthe people, the,
workers, do need to have a good representa-
tion. However, it should not become just an-
other form of oppression to the workers, but
rather should represent the workers. And
they have a good, good, big job to perform
for the workers, but they need to make sure
that the workers are who they're represent-
ing.
Recycling locations
For the person looking for a place to de-
posit bottles, paper, etc.: There are two large
places here in Citrus County. One on (County
Road) 491 near Sal's Restaurant. The other.is
behind Withlacoochee Technical Institute on
(State Road) 44. Both of them are very large
and both are convenient. Hope this helps
you.
Line item
I'm calling about the Progress Energy rate
increase. I would -like to see the 25 percent
increase as a separate line item so that...we
will be able to recover that amount as fast as
possible. Please ask them to list it separately
so it will make it easier for us, the ratepayers,
to get our money back.
Get smart
Listen, I'm an American citizen. I wanted
to say something. Washington is bringing out
.a lot of things ... The only thing I can tell you
is, stop the war in Iraq so you can have that
$20 billion that they spend every month. Get
smart, America. This is your country, it's not
the politicians' country'... lots of times that
I've called up, I have never seen it in the pa-
pers. That's why I was a little mad, but any-
way, you're the only person that I can talk to.
What patriot?
Give me a break. Rush Limbaugh, a super
patriot? He makes millions feeding ignorant
people whatever it takes to induce them to tune
in. He has been married and divorced, what,
four or five times? Out of all these marriages,
no kids. Makes you .wonder, doesn't it? He's a
drug addict and he broke the law and he got
off the hook because of all his big bucks. What
about all this makes him a patriot?
Tacky trees
To the person that called in about the trees
looking tacky on U.S. 19: Haven't you noticed
they just blend in with the rest of the county?

Farther-reaching effects
Re: Paul Fulton's Jan. 7 letter, "In dis-
agreement:"
Mr. Fulton's referral to the Chronicle's ed-
itorial as dismissing and contemptuous to
the people of Sugarmill Woods is ill-fitting.
He tries to make the point that while there
is a need for the Parkway 2 extension
(which is debatable), it must "be done with
the community in mind."
The "community" to which he refers is
only Sugarmill Woods. Placing the Parkway
2 any further east would place it in the An-
nutteliga Hammock, an important area for
groundwater recharge into Florida's pri-
mary drinking water source, the Florida
Aquifer. Mr. Fulton has no concern about the
.larger "community;" the people of Citrus
County and, even farther reaching, the state
of Florida. The esthetics of the project are
the least important aspect of the whole mat-
ter. Moving the pathway of the project to the
,east and into the Annutteliga Hammock
could pose much more dire consequences
than having the very small portion of the
Sugarmill Woods community living with a
"noise level equivalent to living on U.S. 19."
In fact, a portion of the Sugarmill Woods
community already lives on or close to U.S.
19; a fact that didn't discourage anyone from
purchasing in the community.
My guess is Mr. Fulton hasn't lived here
too awfully long and lives in or near the
area of Sugarmill Woods that will be af-
fected if indeed the Parkway 2 project goes
through as planned. Having the BOCC take
a more citizen-friendly view and a more dis-
cerning attitude about the future of the Sug-
armill Woods community has little to do
with the matter, and Mr. Fulton summed that
up very succinctly in his letter What really
matters is what effect the project will have
on the many more people than just those
who live in Sugarmill Woods. Once the deci-
sion is made to build the Parkway 2 as .
planned, or to move it east into the environ-
mentally sensitive Annutteliga Hammock, it
cannot be reversed.

Justifictiion of abuse
Ms. Welch wrote that she wanted to learn
of religions that pre-dated the Jesus story
She also does not believe that women were
abused after Paul wrote for wives to submit
A few of the ancient gods whose stories pre-
date the Jesus story include Horus, Osiris, Kr-
ishna and Mithras. A complete listing of gods
who were born of virgins, died and were res-
urrected, raised the dead, and the commun-
ion ritual would fill many pages. St Augustine
wrote that the followers of Mithras and he
worshipped the same god. Early Christian
theologians wrote of the similarities of the
Jesus story and ancient pagan religions.
Kathryn Joyce in an article published in
Religious Dispatches on Jan. 2, 2009, wrote
of the Evangelicals who refuse to recognize
abuse as grounds for divorce because the
wives were not submissive enough. Her arti-
cle will soon be a book, one of many on the
tolerance of some Christian religions for this
type of abuse. Many modern religions forbid\
female pastors because women should be
subservient to men and not have authority
over them. Before Paul and Christianity,
there were female religious authorities.
Since this attitude toward women has
come forward in modern times, it must have
been much worse in ancient and medieval
times; the same as early in our country's
history, when the Bible was used to justify
the abuses of slavery.

Stand up
I would like to respond to Tom Morgan's
"Be outraged" letter to the editor (Feb. 9).
Well, Mr. Morgan is right! I am outraged. I
am outraged that Mr. Morgan wants to take
away the freedoms and constitutional rights
of others. Purporting to be a proud Ameri-
can, he uses the media to publish a letter to
express his views and opinions, but in this
letter he wants others jailed for expressing
their opinions. That, Mr. Morgan is not what
America is about
I am outraged to think that any American


has the point of view, that if you don't agree
with me, you need to be censored and im-
prisoned. Mr. Morgan stated that the "FCC
needs to remove Limbaugh, Hannity and
O'Reilly from our nations airways and cen-
sor FOX News, and until we do this we can
never be proud to be an American."
Mr Morgan, you could not be more wrong!
Proud Americans stand up for what they be-
lieve, but they do not attempt to take away
the rights and freedoms of others simply be-
cause they don't hold the same views and
opinions. Censorship, banning talk show
hosts from the airways and imprisoning
people simply because they have a different
take on a situation is something that is bet-
ter left to communist countries.
Perhaps, Mr Morgan, you would feel more
comfortable living in one of those countries;
you could then only hope that it is not you that
is censored and imprisoned for your beliefs.

Not-so-safe hands
State Farm recently announced that they
were dropping all property insurance cover-
age in the state of Florida. This decision
was based on their current and future losses
and the fact that the state denied their sub-
stantial increases in policy pricing.
Don't be fooled by this action. In all proba-
bility, they set up this failure in 1998 when
they dropped Florida property coverage from
the family of State Farm Mutual national cov-
erage, based on their loss of substantial funds
for payment of claims and expenses.
Perhaps poor management and high ex-
penses (salaries/bonuses) and their failure
to purchase sufficient backup umbrella cov-
erage from outside sources, which would
have provided funds for extreme costs such
as Hurricane Andrew, was the true cause
for their h igh losses.
Prior to their change from State Farm Mu-
tual to State Farm Florida, all nationwide costs
were shared mutually from their national total
profits. It seems that the cost of claims in
Florida encouraged their management to spin
offthe Florida division to sink or swim totally
on the sole proceeds created by policies sold
for Florida properties. I am not aware that
they took that same action in Louisiana or Cali-
fornia, both of which have been subject to
many costly natural disasters. It should also be
noted that they will continue to write their au-
tomobile coverage under State Farm Mutual,
which they claim is profitable!
What they have done is a shabby action
against their customers and I for one will
take counter-action by replacing all my
other policies with firms I feel I can trust
They should also find a new motto because I
no longer feel that I'm "In Safe Hands."
A copy of this letter is being sent to Gov.
Charlie Crist with my request that he follow
through on revoking their licenses to oper-
ate in our state.

PTSD medal
I have read where some folks would like
to see the Purple Heart be given to service
men and women whom have been diag-
nosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. It
has become alarmingly evident that many
have this problem.
Awarding a medal seems the proper thing
to do but not the Purple Heart. That belongs
to those whom have at least shed blood in
combat and should remain so. PTSD affects
the mental stability of the soldier and the
mind can make that person do so many
things that others may not understand. If
you have ever had a panic or major depres-
sion attack, you know that you never want
them again. There is help and you will need
it to beat this and bring stability to your life.
A medal should be created to recognize
this devastating problem and to give points
for government jobs to veterans who should
have first priority, anyway In a country that
is so hell bent on not "torturing" terrorists
and the like, we seem mostly unconcerned
about the torture that PTSD has been put-
ting veterans through for many years...
Americans first.. .God bless America.

Stephen G. Breyer,
associate justice, was born on
Aug. 15, 1938. He was ap-
pointed by President Clinton,
and took his seat Aug. 3, 1994.
Samuel Anthony
Alito Jr., associate justice,
was born April 1, 1950. He


was appointed by President
George W Bush, and took his
seat Jan. 31,2006.
As you can see, Justice'
Stevens is in his late 80s, jus-
tices Scalia, Kennedy, Gins-
burg, Souter and Breyer are
in their 70s and Chief Justice
Roberts, Justice Alito and
Justice Thomas are in their
mid-50s to early 60s. Many
people who cover the
Supreme Court believe that


Justice Souter is the wild-
card. He was appointed by a
Republican president, but is
considered by many to be a
member of the left wing of
the court.
Some people think he is
the next most likely to retire.
Rumors have it that he does
not care for Washington that
much. He has not been happy
with the court's sometimes
conservative decisions, and


has apparently never viewed
the job as necessarily one
that will consume the re-
mainder of his working life.
Any time there is an open-
ing on the Supreme Court
hysteria reigns supreme. The
talking heads will have a
wonderful time talking about
what will happen or not hap-
pen to Roe v. Wade, Miranda
v. Arizona, etc.
Because the Democrats


are in complete control and
because the justices who may
depart in the next two years
are extremely liberal, my
guess is there won't be much
of a change in the Supreme
Court A more dramatic prob-
lem would surface if one of
the conservative-leaning
judges Roberts, Scalia,
Thomas, or Alito left the
court. Also, if Justice Souter
was replaced by an even


more liberal judge, that could
change the direction of the
court.

tives at noon on the third day of
January, of the years in which such
terms would have ended if this ar-
ticle had not been ratified; and the
terms of their successors shall
then begin."
According to Wikipedia, "The
amendment's primary purpose is
to reduce the amount of time be-
tween Election Day in November
and the beginning of Presidential,
Vice Presidential and Congres-
sional terms.
"Originally, the terms of the
president, the vice president and
the Congress began on March 4,
four months after the elections
were held. While this lapse was a
practical necessity during the 18th
Century, at which time a newly
elected official might need several
months to put his affairs in order
and then undertake the arduous
journey from his home to the na-
tional capital, it had the effect of
impeding the functioning of gov-
ernment in the modern age. This
was seen most notably in 1861 and
1933, as Abraham Lincoln and
Franklin D. Roosevelt each had to
wait approximately four months
before they could deal with the
Civil War and the Great Depres-
sion, respectively."
The government recognized and
acted to address the financial cri-
sis that was building during the
Republican-controlled Congress of
Herbert Hoover's administration.
It's too bad our Republican Con-
gress is back to business as usual
in the support of failed policies
and the use of politically ladened
words that have little or no reality
in President Obama's bill. There is
accountability cited and the pro-
gram is designed to focus on solid
science to rebuild our country.
Read the bill yourself.

Bad news for county
I find it rather hypocritical that
you are now scrutinizing Greene.
He is the same man who ran for
the office and now all of a sudden
you ask questions. Greene used to
work for a major developer in Cit-
rus; he had ties to Citrus Hills; he
fires those who-might have not
supported him; he hires those who
are aligned with big developers
and a lightweight opponent to seal
the deal. Morale will be damaged
in the property appraiser office,
for good reason. Lawsuits will cost
Citrus because Greene is a part of
the suits and will not do what is in
the best interest of the majority of


taxpayers. Then he hires an em-
ployee from a developer at a big
salary at a time when the devel-
oper probably didn't need the em-
ployee since building is down.
Taxpayers get to pay the salary
until the market returns and then
the employee will go back to the
developer. A little bit like Wesch
when he was fired and now brings
in a big salary at the sheriff's de-
partment.
My letters to the editor to this ef-
fect were shredded when I warned
about who was financing Greene.
Now the 60 percent who voted the
fox into the hen house deserve
him, but the rest of us do not. As
time goes on, you will see that
those county commissioners who
were recently elected will favor
developers' interest over the rest
of us.
We can now look forward to a
Buddy Johnson (former election
supervisor in Hillsborough
County). Be damned the public, I
got elected and I will hire, fire and
spend money the way I want to.

of the first black president of the
United States; a man who in his
first days of office has used his
power to spend literally billions of
the taxpayers' money to fund abor-
tions, not only in America, but now
throughout the entire world. So
how far have we come in those 46
years?
It appears we have not come
very far. As long as the most inno-
cent and vulnerable humans of all
are at risk in their own mother's
womb, and, as long as there are
still any human beings who are not
protected by the laws of this coun-

Now if you figured that was
the average for each of the
county's 55,000 households, the
decrease in local tax revenue
will top the $10 million mark
That's a lot of money.
I think our county commis-
sioners, school board mem-
bers and city council leaders
are smart enough to realize
they can't raise the millage
rate to get back those dollars
lost through the decreased
valuation.
The economy is sour; ourun-
$


employment rate is close to 10
percent and voters dumped on
big spenders during the 2008
elections. Raising the millage
rate would be political suicide.
So Joe Meek's message is
pretty clear: we need to start
working on this now before
we are faced with a deadline
crisis. Budgets don't really
come together until the sum-
mer months, but policy deci-
sibns need to be made at
every level and they need to
be made now.
What can we afford? How
can reductions be made?
What are those services that:
are absolutely necessary from
a taxpayer's standpoint? What


are the luxuries? How much
money is really available and
what should it be spent on?
It has been unfortunate at
the county level that the new
commission has been di-
verted by political infighting.
It's time to get focused on the
real business at hand. The
decreased property ,value
equation is about to create a
real dilemma let's not act
surprised when the tough de-
cisions have to be made.

In trying to maximize the
number of items we can fit into

evitably run stuff that causes
Mabel's husband to shake his
head and say, "Life's bad
enough without reading about
some sicko in Miami who as-
saulted a meter reader"
There's no perfect balance
in offering the daily dose of
news. Some people want
more local news, other peo-
ple want more nation and
world news. Nobody's the


same and the goal is to pro-
vide something of interest to
everyone.
As we've seen this past
week, there's enough sad or
troubling local and non-local
news of broad interest that
publishing grim news of little
local relevance doesn't seem
a good use of space.
That's not to say crime
news of minimal local inter-
est won't ever get in the
paper; inevitably some will.
But there is ongoing discus-
sion here about how to keep
a balance to the news so
readers don't get overly
bummed out and say, "Hey,
Mabel let's start swiping


exotic plants so we can buy
enough beer to forget about
this tortured world."
Before reaching that point,

Howard Beale
I'm calling today just to
give my opinion. I am really
tired of hearing about all our
schools being cut and the
teachers' salaries now being
cut and seeing our county
spending money, really.
Wonderful lady
I want to thank the lady
that saved the county
$67,000. As a taxpayer, I
thank her and I wish she
would take a look at mine.
The lady's name is Amy Han-
nell. I wish she would take a
look at my light bill. I really
would appreciate it. I'm not
trying to be funny, but it's a
wonderful lady. God bless
her.
Big trouble ahead?
I would like to thank the
Chronicle for an excellent arti-
cle regarding Geoff Greene's
changes to the city property
appraiser's office. I am disap-
pointed on two fronts: 1.
That Mr. Greene has seen fit
to discharge many long-term
experienced employees and
replace some of them with
no-experience patronage
staff at higher salaries. 2.
That this article has raised
no outrage from the county
taxpayers. If Mr. Greene han-
dles the office property deci-
sion making like his hiring
'practices, we are in for big
trouble.
When can we burn?


I'm trying to find out when
the county commissioners or
forestry rangers are going to
lift the burn ban so I can
burn some brush in my yard.
I have a pit,, but all I see in
the paper is there's a burn
(ban) on. When are they
going to lift the burn ban so
people can burn some of the

-g I agree with the

I think the parents
were much more at
fault than the coach. The par-
ents used the other team to
further their team's spirits by


making fun of the other team
and every mistake that they
made..That's where the mis-
take came in. That's where
the lack of judgment and
character came in, was mak-
ing fun of the other team at *
the expense of the other
team. They cheered their girls
instead of just cheering the
girls for the good plays that
they made. So I think the
man was a little mixed up
.when it wasn't really the-
score, it was the parents' atti-
tude against the other team
that I thought was deplorable.
And I think the principal
should have been at the
game to stop it.


right now. They're laying off
hundreds and hundreds of
people in Citrus County.
Why doesn't the county
commissioners take a cut in
their pay and all these
other state workers? I
mean, what are they doing-'
with their money? Every- ,
body else is starving around
town here. People are ..
homeless in the woods and
here the county commis-
sioners are lapping up all
the funds and all the money
and their wives are running
around with all brand new
cars and everything and .
going out to all these fancy
dinners while the homeless
ain't even got a piece of
bread to eat. So I think all;
the county commissioners.
should take a 5 to 10 per-
cent reduction in pay or
have them all retire or get ,
out of the service.

BRIAN LaPETERIChronicle
Rocky Hensley has worked locally In banking for 35 years. He is now the vice president/community banker for Center State Bank in Inverness.

Long-time Inverness banker has much invested in Citrus County community


CHRIS VAN ORMER
cvanormer@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle
For a man who never wanted to
be a banker, Rocky. Hensley has
made a good career in the city
where he grew up Inverness.
"I'm coming back to my roots as a
community banker," Hensley said.
Three months ago; Hensley left
SunTrust bank, where he worked
for 23 years, to become vice presi-
dent/community banker at Center
State Bank in Inverness. He han-
dles all- sorts of loans: personal,
business, commercial and auto.
"I'm a jack of all.trades," Hensley
said. "I'm going back to my roots of
one-stop shopping."
He started with Citizens First Na-
tional Banks of Inverness, Crystal
River and Homosassa, founded by
long-time county resident and busi-
nessman Edward G. Gerrits, presi-
dent of Gerrits Construction
Company, a rancherand developer.
Hensley stayed there 12 years.
When he joined, he was just look-
ing for a job.
"Banking was the furthest thing
from my mind when I was young,"
he said. "I started out in the collec-
tions department. I was told that I
had to dress up because I repre-
sented the bank I had one clip-on
tie and a sport coat."
Hensley soon learned that the job
was a good fit for his skills.
"I called on customers who had
past-due loans, working with folks
to get their payinents current. A lot
of bankers start out doing that
work," he said. "This way, I learned
banking from the bottom up."


I was told that I had to dress up
because I represented the bank. I had
one clip-on tie and a sport coat.


Rocky Hensley
about his job with Edward G. Gerrits.


Life at his first bank wasn't all ac-
counting for outstanding debts.
"I met my wife, Melanie,, while
we were working at the Citizens
First National Bank," ,he said.
"Then she went to work for Norine
Gilstrap."
Hensley has two daughters and a
granddaughter
"I'm fortunate to have all my fam-
ily in Citrus County," he said.
After 12 years. Hensley moved on
to SunTrust, and Citizens First
moved on too, showing how bank-
ing evolves. It was 'purchased by the
First Florida Bank, then became
Barnett Bank, then Nations Bank,
then Bank of America.
Times change in Inverness.
"We are blessed to live in Citrus
County," he said. "I am glad to have
entered my'banking career here."
Hensley is a lifelong resident of
Inverness, having been born in 1952
in Brooksville. He's a fourth-gener-
ation Floridian. His mother was
born in Archer, his grandmother in
Micanopy and his great-grand-
mother in Jacksonville.
He was raised by a single mother
"She taught me to be polite and
to treat people as you want to be
treated," he said. "You used to hear


the term that the village raises
you."
Hensley was raised during a time
when everyone in the community
had an eye out for the youngsters.
"In the 1960s and '70s, there were
less than 20,000 people in the
county, so if you did anything,
everybody heard about it," Hensley
said. "I attribute d lot to the com-
munity. In a small Southern town,
you get a real sense of the commu-
nity by seeing people you know all
the time in the grocery stores and
at church."
Back in those days, the county
seal had a farming and agriculture
theme, Hensley said. The county's
wealth came from orange groves,
cattle and watermelon fields. Land
now has been'bought for construc-
tion.
"What growth did bring," he said.
Most of what growth brought has
been good, he said. "When Progress
Energy came along, it created a lot
of jobs."
But before growth and jobs, the
county offered a simpler lifestyle.
"The school system was much
smaller and the people were of-'
fered fewer services," he said.
"You'd shop at local mom-and-pop


grocery stores and you'd say,
'Charge it.' At the end of the month,
you'd pay your tab."
Large attractions to draw crowds
were fewer, too.
"The elections process is differ-
ent now," Hensley said. "It used to
be a community qvent. People
would go to the courthouse with
their lawn chairs and blankets.
Someone would announce results
with a loudspeaker, while people
had coffee and donuts. It was a big
event"
A quieter, simpler Inverness is
what Hensley remembers from his
childhood.\
"When I was a kid, we used to
have three-party phone lines," he
said. I rode a bike everywhere I
went. People didn't lock doors at
night. The sports events in high
school were well supported. Every-
body went I could spend all day at
the Valerie Theater watching
movies for 50 cents."
Feeling part of the community
from the beginning, Hensley has
been part of it all his life. Currently,
he is the fundraising chairman for
the United Way of Citrus County.
"The campaign is going on until
the end of March," he said. "Fortu-
nately, it's doing well, even in this
economic time. The community is
coming together to help other
folks."
His Rotary Club has worked with
Habitat for Humanity. He has seen
how much the help is appreciated
with wall raising.
"Help your community and your
community will help you," Hensley
said.

Citrus SCORE hosts two-day seminar


Group presents award to Dean


Special to the Chronicle
',The Citrus County Chapter of SCORE presented State Sen.
Charles Dean, R-Inverness, with an honorary membership award
for outstanding support to its organization. Accepting the
Seaward for Dean was Janet Oehmig, legislative assistant. From
the left are: John Seifert, Citrus County Score executive board
member; Skip Honegstein, COO Score Central and North Florida
District; Bob Shephard, district director, Score Central and
North Florida District; Bob Radcliffe, Citrus County Score ex-
ecutive board member; Oehmig; and Ralph Russo, Citrus
, County executive board membership.

Chronicle
Score one for Citrus
SCORE.
The county chapter was
awarded the chapter of the
year award in SCORE's Cen-
tral and Northern Florida
District.
"We looked at all the chap-
ters and have no doubt in
our minds that Chapter 646
(Citrus) deserves the
award," said Bob Shephard,
district director, SCORE
Central.
Shephard said the chapter
worked hard all year raising


the public's awareness that
SCORE has advice and
training to offer new entre-
preneurs. It has published
articles in the media, been
honored by the Chamber of
Commerce and kept its
speakers' bureau busy
"It has shown innovation
in business counseling,"
Shephard said.
Chapter Chairman Norm
Mangano accepted the
award and said, "Thank you
for thinking so highly of us."
Eight chapters of Score
gathered Monday and Tues-
day for seminars about help-
ing small businesses in their
communities.
"The chairs of all eight


chapters get together each
year to discuss their best
practices," Shephard said.
"B3':getting close together,
there is strength in num-
bers."
The Citrus County chapter
presented an award to state
Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Inver-
ness, because "the senator
has mentioned the distinct
advantage of having Score
here to create jobs,"
Mangano said. "The hon-
orary award is given to a
non-members to show we
appreciate their active sup-
port."
Janet Oehmig, Dean's leg-
islative assistant, accepted
the award on his behalf. She
said the senator was unable
to attend as he was busy
working on the state budget.

BANKING
Continued from Page Al

And he helps. He has been
president of the Chamber of
Commerce twice, in 1976 and
1986, and serves on the
board. He's been president of
the Rotary Club of Inverness
and serves on the board. He's
been president of Kiwanis.
In his new position at Cen-
ter State Bank, as community
banker, Hensley sometimes
wonders if he is supposed to
be a fortuneteller.
"It still comes down to peo-
ple being comfortable with
who they bank with. I take on
the role of counselor and
prognosticator. People ask
me: When will the housing
market come back?"
People will turn to their
community banker for advice
about the national economy,
which can be a hard read for
the banker.
"Everyone's trying to get a
handle on how bad things
are," Hensley said. "We're in
the mode of discovery and
settlement. 2009 is not going
to be pretty. It's going to be
challenging."
But no one can miss the im-
pact of the recession.
"It's in our back yard,"



- q -O

Hensley said. "A 'lot of the
slowdown is attributed to the
decline in construction. A
large percentage of retired
folks live here and we didn't
realize how much we relied
on the construction industry.
It has a float-on effect."
He's got to be realistic
about the future.
"There's such a buildup in
the .inventory of existing
homes, we don't know when
construction can come back
again," he said.
The impact on Citrus
County might not be the same
as in other parts of the coun-
try, but it is still deeply felt,
and Hensley said he appreci-
ates that.
"Not having any big facto-
ries, we don't see a large
number of lay-offs, but we do
see too many people losing
their jobs," he said. "We're
not insulated from the reces-
sion."
He sees his role as offering
suggestions to move ahead.
"While I don't know the an-
swers, I've always tried to be-
lieve in supporting each
other by shopping locally and
helping the mom-and-pop
businesses," he said. "When
you can go out for a meal, re-
member the folks serving you
and leave a tip. Give a little
more if you can."

As his own career is going
back to its roots, Hensley said
the role of banks must revert
to what they once were.
"Banking is evolving back
to where it was, to prudent
lending, where they check
the credit factor and the
down payment factor," he
said. "We got away from
banking the way it was in the
early years. An accumulation
of things has been going on
and who was watching the
hen house?"
He acknowledges that too
many borrowers wanted too
much, too soon.
"We've been living in a
world of immediate gratifica-
tion," he said. "Now, we're
going to ask for income veri-
fication when we make loans,
but the customer should un-
derstand that- it's for their
well-being, too."
He said it all gets back to
basic skills.
"People should have
learned in school how to bal-
ance a checkbook and do
household budgeting," he
said. "We've gotten away from
being conservative and sav-
ing money for a rainy day."
Bottom line:- "When you
borrow, you do have to pay it
back."
He said county government
has a major role in bringing






l 4tf -





low -- 4'


doom- -00


back the local economy
"I'm glad to see the county
relax impact fees on existing
buildings for change of use,"
he said. "It will help some-
people stimulate business.
The American dream of start-
ing a business is now ex-
tremely tough."
Supporting community and
charity has been the theme of
Hensley's career.
"There are so many people
in the community And I'd
like to thank them all for
what I've become," he said.
"What makes our community
what it is is that it's such a
giving community."
Since he had cancer sur-
gery four years ago, Hensley
said he has focused on what's
important in life.
"I'm fortunate to have
things and be blessed," he
said. "And I give thanks every
morning before I put my feet
on the floor."
He has a sense of gratitude
for his recent career move.
"SunTrust was good to me.
I miss the people there. I
learned a lot from them, and
they helped me in what I'm
doing now," he said.
"Center State is a smaller,
hometown bank, based in
Winter Haven, a community
bank I feel I've come full cir-
cle in my career."

Get up and enjoy


the outdoors!


The more time we spend in
urban environments, the
more important it is to get
away from life as we
know it and venture into
the great outdoors. Out-
door sports and recre-
ation do much more
than simply promote
mind and body well- i
ness. Being out and ac-
tive in nature facilitates
our connection with the
natural world around Joan Br
us, even if our time in- FLOI
vestment extends to just FRIEi
a few moments every- LiVI
day. While many of us
appreciate the wonders
of the outdoors in Citrus County,
few of us head offwith eco-friendly
leisure activities in mind.
Although you might assume that
outdoor recreation is 100 percent
environmentally friendly, the
commercialization of the sports
industry over the past several
years has birthed various forms of
outdoor recreational activity that
are technology dependent, and

are not necessarily synonymous
with protecting the environment.
When it comes to "green" recre-
ation, the world is at
your.fingertips. You can
save money and re-
sources by cutting down
on costly gym member-
ships in favor of an out-
door fitness program
instead. Remember, it
does not take much to
get out into the open for
adshaw a run or a walk. Green
IDA- hiking and green biking
MDIY opportunities give us
the chance to smell the
NG morning air, or, the
earth after a good rain.
Camping is a great activity this
time of year. Citrus County has
more than two dozen fine sites for
camping or RV visits. Many sites
are alongside lakes or rivers, and
you'll often find on-site activities.
If you do go camping, remember to
carefully dispose of trash in desig-
nated areas. You might also want

to plan in advance to use eco-
friendly camping supplies such
as biodegradable products, and
reusable dishes and utensils.
Above all, watch out for Styro-
foam and other items labeled
"disposable" because, chances
are, they will not provide a nat-
ural fit for the environment.
- Fishing is another activity that
is a very popular sport in Citrus
County. Aside from giving you
the opportunity to bring home
the meal of the day in a perfectly
eco-friendly manner, it provides
the chance to get away from the
hubbub of our busy work lives.
Green fishing is about much
more than just the catch it is
about understanding that, like
all wild animals, fish play an im-
portant role in our ecosystem.
Choosing proper fishing gear
is essential for minimizing the
incidence of by-catch, the acci-
dental catch of other marine
species. If you are new to fish-
ing, it is a good idea to educate
yourself about the types of fish
that you're setting out to catch.
Educating yourself prepares
you for the accidental catch of
a young fish or inedible fish so
that you know how to return
them to their aquatic habitat.
Take special precautions when
disposing ofmonofilament fish-
ing line. Careless discarding of
monofilament line can present
serious environmental prob--
lems. This type of fishing line is
extremely difficult to see when
submerged in water, and fish,
birds, and other marine life can
easily become entangled.
Whatever your choices of eco-
friendly recreation, the basic
objectives are the same. Green
recreation conserves resources
by enabling you to take advan-
tage of what nature readily pro-
vides, cuts down on pollution by
minimizing activities which re-
quire the use of sophisticated
machines that emit harmful
gases, helps to build innate

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


Cape honeysuckle adds sweet color to gardens


R recently, a visitor brought
two flowers to my home
to ask if I knew what
they were. Both were exotic
non-natives that flowered in
winter. Both had evergreen
leaves. Since relatively few
commercially available species
flower in January, one was
quickly identified as Cape hon-
eysuckle, Tecomaria capensis,
from the Cape of Good Hope re-
gion in South Africa. Tecomaria
has but a single genus and
species. Some botanists now
combine it in the genus
Tecoma, which has 12 species
native to South and Central
America.
We checked the second
species against photos and de-


scriptions in a thick
botanical reference
book of more than
10,000 garden plants.
That could take
months to peruse! I
suggested taking the
sample to a nursery
dealing in exotics or
to a master gardener -
at the County Exten- Jane Weber
sion office. A third
, option was to ask the JANE'S
folks at the Florida GARDEN
Native Plant Society,
which meets at 7 p.m. on the sturdy st
first Tuesday each month at 20 feet ta
Beverly Hills Lions Club. Since come thi
several members are profes- be prun
sional plant people and master
gardeners, someone would


probably recognize
t lie plant in question.
Call Jim Bierly at
382-3365 for more in-
formation.
Tropical Cape
honeysuckle is not
particularly cold
hardy for use north
of Zone 9 in Florida
unless planted in a
protected microcli-
mate. In the garden,
it climbs as a ram- -
bling vine over
ipports reaching 15 to
11. Older trunks can be-
ck and woody so it can
ed as a large shrub or

even a single-trunked "standard
tree." Most often, Cape honey-
suckle is used as an informal
hedge or privacy screen or spot-
ted among evergreen plants in a
hedgerow for winter color
Tropical plants are popular as
potted patio plants. Cape honey-
suckle can be kept in a big pot
and allowed to become a large
shrub. It can be pruned as a stan-
dard or trained on a trellis. Es-
pallier pruning (one-faced, flat
against a wall) is one option for
in-ground specimens as a south-
facing wall will provide protec-
tion from winter chill and
radiate heat overnight Some-
times it is left to cascade over the
container and drape down off a
deck with a lovely, colorful effect
Light green, pinnate leaves
have odd numbers of opposite,
pointed leaflets with a single
one at the tip. Leaf margins are
wavy and irregularly toothed.
The spectacular flowers are
trumpet-shaped in dense clus-
ters at the ends of long shoots.
Flowering season is mainly
from October to February but
blooms can be seen every
month of the year. Full sun and
humus-rich soil are best. In
March, June and September,
fertilize with a time-released
12-2-14 for lush, dense greenery.
Individual flowers are usually
bright orange over an inch long.
The trumpet flares out in five
distinct petals joined into a
trumpet at the base. Prominent
stamens protrude with floppy,
pollen-covered anthers. Deep
down in the trumpet, Cape hon-
eysuckle has lots of sweet nectar
The showy flowers are irre-
*sistible to butterflies, bees and
other insect pollinators and
hummingbirds. In turn preda-
tors like lizards, frogs, birds and
snakes dine on the insects.
Then bigger carnivores such as
hawks, falcons, bobcats and
foxes prey on them. A healthy
garden is a cycle of life, growth,
death, and birth. Sit back and
watch the endless wildlife show
from the porch or hammock A
garden is a fascinating place
any day of the year


Jane Weber is a professional
gardener and nursery owner
She welcomes weekend visitors

and Wildlife Habitat at 5019 W.
