In 1930, Helen Hopkins
started attending '"The School."
The only black school in Crys-
tal River had no real name.
Hopkins would walk a mile
along unpaved roads from her
home on Seventh Avenue to the
little wooden building on the
corner of N.E. Third Avenue
and N.W Fifth Street.
"There was just pathways,"
Hopkins recalled.
She would arrive around
8 a.m. each morning, ready for


school to start with her teacher,
Mayme Mobley.
Hopkins said the building was
too small to have a cafeteria, so
at lunch the students would
walk a quarter of a mile to
Hoods Grocery Store on Citrus
Avenue where she bought
cheese and crackers or bologna
for a nickel.
Recess was at 10 a.m. and
Hopkins played on the girls'
basketball team. Hopkins said

ceremonies at the Old County Courthouse.


Olde Towne Assn. launches 2009 with new momentum


Special to the Chronicle
Following the recent cer-
emonial swearing in of new
board officers. The Inver-
ness Olde Towne Associa-
tion (IOTA) unveiled plans
for member growth, a new
Web site, a host of special
community programs and a
newly created permanent
position of executive direc-
tor, all presented in the
midst Of economic decline.
Janet Ferguson, manager
of the Publix Supermarket

where Kmart is located was
elected president of the or-
ganization.
Ferguson had: previously
served as president of the
Central Pasco County
Chamber of Commerce in
Land 0' Lakes, where she
managed another Publix
store. When the opportunity
arose to manage the Inver-
nes store, she agreed to re-
turitto-the locale where she
was" raised and her children
had graduated and moved
away.


Doug Lobel, former presi-
dent of the group who had
served in that capacity for
2 1/2 years, was appointed
to the newly created posi-
tion of executive director.
According to Ferguson, the
position was created in an-
ticipation of an expanded
agenda for the organization.
"We are experiencing a
positive evolution and ex-
pansion of Olde Towne and
Inverness in general," she
said. "We need a skilled
leader with the available
time and talent to daily
oversee all of our current
and planned activities."
Ferguson said that Inver-
ness Olde Towne Associa-
tion offers retailers and
other related businesses
the abilityto Share a wealth

cially in a weakened econ-

STIMULUS
Continued from Page Al

would offer up to $400 billion
to government-sponsored
mortgage enterprises Freddie
Mac and Fannie Mae to en-
courage them to refinance
loans for houses whose mar-
ket values have sunk below
the amount still owed.
Also, in the emergency
stimulus plan announced
Tuesday, first-time homebuy-
ers who purchase a home be-
tween Jan. 1 and Dec. 1 will
be eligible for a tax credit of
10 percent of the value of the
home, up to $8,000. Home-
owners don't have to pay back
this credit over the next 15
years.
"The tax credit is a good
thing, although I'm not sure it
would have much effect on
the Citrus County market as
we don't have that many first-
time homebuyers," Hem-
merich said..
Melonie Haag, president of
the Realtors Association of
Citrus County, said that Real-
tors are enthusiastic about
the $8,000 tax credit
"We feel that it will make a
S' great impact," she said. Not
only is the tax credit greater
than the previous one, she
said, but it does not have to be
paid back
"It also helps that banks
can do mitigation for foreclo-
sures," she said. It would help
the' whole economy to keep
people in their houses.
"It's a great time to buy a
house," she said. "The prices
are low, the interest rates Ore
low. First-time buyers get a
tax credit It would get rid of
some of this inventory."
Haag pointed out that a po-
tential homebuyer would
qualify as a first-time buyer,
eligible for the tax credit, if
he or she had not bought a
home for three years.
"Right now, the prices are
great," Haag said. "They are
about at the 2003 level."
Vacant land is cheaper, too,
she said.
"Building could start with
the moratorium on impact
fees," she said. "Now we have
to wait and see to see which
factors actually stimulate the
economy."
Hemmerich said the plan
would help real estate by


keeping more foreclosed
houses off the market
. "Real_ estate is .all about
supply and demand," Hem-
merich said. "This will bring
some balance to the market
because foreclosed houses
are a real drag on the mar-
ket"
He said he welcomed
Washington's strategies.
"I'm always the optimist,"
he said. "I don't think the pic-
ture is as bad as we have been
led to believe. People still
have expendable income. Be-
cause of the media, so many
have been putting their life
on hold. The stimulus pack-
age can offer hope. People
can decide we can win and be
OK."
Bringing back consumer
confidence could be the
greatest feature of the stimu-
lus plans, according to Kevin
Cunningham, Re/Max Realty,
Lecanto.
"The biggest thing is hold-
ing off foreclosures," he said.
"But the emphasis is on how
people feel about the econ-
omy."
When confidence returns,
Cunningham said, "People
will see that it's a terrible
thing to waste a recession. A
recession is the best time to
buy. There hasn't been a bet-
ter time in the past 15 years."
When the first stimulus
plan gave money to the banks,
Cunningham said, "It disap-
peared, and didn't make peo-
ple confident"
A plan that puts more
money in the hands of the
people would restore their
confidence, he said,
The previous package an-
nounced last fall soon will
show some results.
Joe Monroe, Housing Serv-
ices director, said the county
would apply for a $2.2 million
grant under the.first stimulus
package, the Housing and
Economic Recovery Act of Oc-
tober 2008.
"We would purchase and
resell foreclosed properties
for affordable housing," Mon-
roe said. "We will be working
with nonprofits for them to
purchase the houses for
rental or for individuals to
buy them. The county would
not become a public housing
owner"
County staff has been
spending time in training and
workshops to be able to make

Much ofthe success ofthe
affordability and stability
plan will depend on
lenders.
Although no lender
would be required to par-
ticipate, the plan would
loosen refinancing restric-
tions for many borrowers
and provide incentives for
lenders.
Some incentives would
be needed because, for a
homeowner to get monthly
payments lowered to 31
percent of their monthly in-
come. a lender might need
to:
Lower interest rates to
as little as 2 percent.
Extend the terms of the
loan.
Lower the principal
owed by the borrower.
Stop charging interest
on a portion of the loan.
The housing program
came one day after the
president signed a $787 bil-
lion emergency stimulus
plan to revive the rest ofthe
economy. The stimulus plan

the applications under new
federal plans.
"We'll be looking at areas of
greatest need in the county,"
Monroe said. "We'll be looking
into which strategies are best
suited for the different areas."
A public hearing has been
set for.2:15 p.m. Tuesday in
the county commission cham-
ber. The provision is made
under Florida's Neighbor-
hood Stabilization Program.
Monroe said the grant was
not enough funding to deal
with the whole problem, but
would make a start of bringing
abandoned foreclosed prop-
.erties .up to code and--ready
for resale.
"These won't be a gift to the
nonprofits," Monroe said. The
houses would have mortgages
paid back and homeowners
would pay their taxes.
"The money would come
back in and go to the state rev-
enue," Monroe said. "Hope-
fully, it would bring in funding


also will help the housing
crisis, as it requires any fi-
nancial institution benefit-
ing from the bailout to
develop plans to help
homeowners avoid foreclo-
sures. Those rules apply to
the largest banks, which
also are the largest holders
of home loans.
Another strand to hold i ng
back foreclosures is legisla-
tion in Congress to allow
bankruptcy judges to mod-
ify the terms of home loans.
This is opposed by the lend-
ing industry.
Many Democrats and
housing analysts believe
that the only true way to
force mortgage holders to
help strapped borrowers is
to give judges power to
modify bankrupt homeown-
ers' loans, cutting the total
they owe and their monthly
payments. Obama is back-
ing that move as part of his
housing plan, although it
will be up to Congress to
work out the details.
Information from the
Associated Press was used
in this report

so we could do more. It's not
just a dead end."
As stimulus funding be-
comes available, Monroe said,
"We're going to go after it We
can do some good with it"
He said he foresees such
programs as putting more
people in the community back
to work, such as building con-
tractors and subcontractors
and people in title insurance
and building appraisals.
All that's wrong with it,
Monroe said, is "We could use
way more."

SCHOOL
Continued from Page Al

Church of Christ across the
street was also used for two
more classrooms.
With about 25 children in
each room, they sat two to a
desk while teachers wrote les-
sons on the blackboard with
chalk for students to copy
down on paper. More than one
grade shared a classroom and
each grade copied different
lessons.
The desks and books came
secondhand from the local
white schools. The books
were damaged and some-
times missing pages. Children
exchanged books just to be
able to finish their homework
To secure better books and
furniture for the school, it was
suggested the school become
a Rosenwald School like the
one already in Ocala at the
time. Julius Rosenwald was
part owner and president of
Sears, Roebuck and Company
and founder of the Rosenwald
Fund, Monies from the fund
were used to help build and
improve several black schools
in the South. The fund would
offer a third of the money to
make the improvements and
the community and local
school board would each have
to match it Parents and teach-
ers in the Crystal River raised
the money they needed for
their part, but the county
pulled their donation. They
said they didn't want a Rosen-
wald School in the commu-
nity.
'Inr ?-additioin to tattered
books and dilapidated fuirni-


ture, the restroom facilities
weren't much better. Toilets
were outdoors. So was the
drinking faucet And there
was no such thing as central
air conditioning or heating.
Every day, the children sat
in the same classrooms and
studied arithmetic, music,
health, science, writing, read-
ing, deportment and various
other subjects under the strict
guidance of their teachers
until the school day ended at
3:30 p.m.
In the beginning, school
was only four months out of
the year two months before
January and two months after
January. Later, it increased
from four to six and then six to
eight However, the school
board would only pay the
teachers for four months.
Fundraisers were held to
raise funds to pay the teach-
ers' salaries until the school
board finally agreed to pay
them for the full eight months.
School consisted of eight
grades, with no local black
high school to attend, A few
lucky children were able to at-
tend high school at Howard
Academy in Ocala. Most
started working and began
providing for their families.
Starting in the late 1930s, the
school would try to add addi-
tional grades only to have to
discontinue them due to a
lack of students.
Stewart served as principle
from 1937 to 1938 and 1940 to
1941 until he was drafted into
the military. In 1946, Citrus
County Veteran Service Offi-
cer Brown Dumas Sr. recom-

The George Washington
Carver Alumni Association
will be hosting a three-day
celebration honoring those
who attended the first black
school in Crystal River.
A free fish fry will start at
6 p.m. Feb. 27 at the Unity
Church of Christ, 319 N.E.
7th Ave., Crystal River. There
will be a meet-and-greet hour
and a prize giveaway.

proved.
In 1948, Matthew Bryant
took over as principle. It was
during that year George
Washington 'Carver had its
first and only graduating 12th
grade class. The following
year, students started going to
Booker T Washington High
School, the black high school
in Inverness.
From 1949 to 1951,
Copeland left the school to at-
tend Florida A&M University
in Tallahassee and Mamie
McNeal, a teacher at the
school, became principal.
After completing school,
Copeland returned in 1952
and was reappointed princi-
pal until November 1961.
In 1955, the school was
moved from N.E. Third Av-
enue to N.E. Sixth Street into
a building that was bigger,
-newer and had better facili-
ties. While Copeland was
principal he successfully
fought for the school to have
new books and a cottlffl buI S

speaker will be Gall
Copeland.
And starting at 11 a.m.
March 1, there will be a serv-
ice at the Mt. Olive Baptist
Church, 428 N.E. Third Ave.,
Crystal River, to pay tribute
to the school's alumni.

school to the Inverness high
school.
After Copeland left the
school, a man only known by:
former students as Mr. Hill
took over as principal until he
was killed in a car crash.
Longtime educator Annie Mc-
Cray succeeded him until
1965, when William L. Robin-
son served as the last princi-
ple of the all-black school
until the school became inte-
grated in 1966. -
In 1968. George Washington
Carver was no more and the
school officially became what
residents know today as Crys-
tal River Primary School.
The original wooden struc-
ture stood for many years
after the school closed down.
It served as a community cen-
ter and social hub in the black
community until the building
was demolished in the 1970s.
However: black Crystal River
residents never let the history,
of George Washingtdor Chrveri
die.


The George Washington
Carver Community Center
group plans to build a com-
munity center on the site of
the old school. The group
hopes the center will restore
the site's former atmosphere
of community fellowship and
serve to educate future gener-
ations about "the school" that


started it all.
The history of George
Washington Carver Junior
School was gathered through
interviews with former stu-
dents and from the pages of
Gail Copeland's "Knee High:
Chronicles of the George
Washington Carver Junior
High School."

Then Watkins said the kids
would take off running. Even-

would stop and the other side
would swing around to try to
make a circle.
"Some kids flung off to the
side somewhere," Watkins
said.
As years went by, Watkins
said all he could think about
was finishing school and then
getting a job. When 8th grade
finally came, Watkins said he
was excited.
'"All young people looked
forward to graduating 8th
grade," Watkins said.
He and a friend each de-
cided to pull together $15 to
buy graduation suits from
Marshall Field's department
store. Once they had the
money, Watkins said they
found out the school was
adding a 9th grade class.
"I was really frustrated,"
Watkins revealed.
So at 14, Watkins quit school
and went to work making $2 a

lands of Adventure. The
package can be booked until
March 29 for stays any time
between now and Oct. 8.
At Walt Disney World near
Orlando, Fla., visitors can
save $400 off the price of a
seven-night stay between
February and the end of
June. The deal being
touted as "buy four nights, get
three free" can be booked
through the end of March.
WOMEN TRAVEL
Girlfriend getaways are
still incredibly popular, ac-
cording to Stephanie Oswald,
host of "All-Girl Getaways" on
the Fine Living Network
But she said women are
being more cost-conscious,
such as traveling in the mid-
dle of the week, meeting at
the airport and renting one
car together, or renting a va-
cation home and going to a
day spa instead of going to a
destination spa.
April Merenda, president
and co-founder of Gutsy
Women Travel, said her busi-
ness is up 25 percent over last
year. But she said some


women are canceling or post-
poning their trips because of
economic concerns. She said
many companies have can-
celed tours, so she's picking
up some of those travelers.
Allison O'Sullivan, manag-
ing director of The Women's
Travel Club, said the year
started slowly and she cut
back on trip offerings in Jan-
uary and February. But she
said things are picking up.
She's getting more calls and
said she is "going full speed
ahead the rest of the year"
The Women's Travel Club,
which includes women rang-
ing from the 40s to 70s, has fo-
cused on international
destinations, such as Italy,
Iceland and Holland.
But O'Sullivan said she is
planning to offer some do-
mestic trips for women who
want to stay closer to home,
not worry about currency
changes and use their miles.
"Yes, they are affected by
the economy and are looking
for deals, but they are not sit-
ting at home," she said.
CRUISING
Home port cruising is mak-
ing a comeback, according to
Carolyn Spencer Brown, edi-
tor-in-chief of Cruise-
Critic.com. The cruises were
popular after the Sept. 11 ter-


rorist attacks.
"Then people got tired of
the same itineraries and
started to venture to more ex-
otic regions," she said. "Now
with the economy, people are
more interested in being able
to drive to the port"
The Carnival Conquest is
offering a once-a-month
cruise from Galveston, Texas,
to the Eastern Caribbean, a
radical move considering the
Caribbean's western islands
are much more convenient,
said Spencer Brown. The
ship was recently refur-
bished, with a new movie
screen, teen club and addi-
tional balconies.
And starting in April, Car-
nival Pride will sail from Bal-
timore year-round with visits
to popular destinations, in-
cluding the Bahamas,
Florida and Grand Turk in
the Turks & Caicos Islands.
Spencer Brown said
'cruises continue to offer
amazing deals to fill their
ships.
She has seen some as low
as $25 per person a day.
(Ships make much of their
money through gambling and.
alcohol.)
"Right now the buyer is in
the driver's seat," she said.
"It's a wonderful place to be."

isting Lake Gatun by harness-
ing the flow of rivers in the wa-
tershed, and .dam the ends
with a series of locks to raise
and' lower the ships passing
through. Easily said, but a
monstrous undertaldng, cost-
ing an estimated 27,000 lives
lost to massive landslides, in-
dustrial accidents and disease.
Finally, the shortcut be-
tween Europe and Asia was
completed in 1914, a dream of
seafarers and explorers for
centuries. The alternative was
a 14,000 mile loop around the
Horn of South America.
' The locks are engineering
mnarvels of gigantic propor-
tions gates, ranging from 47
to 82 feet high, seven feet thick,
with each leaf being 65 feet
wide, pivoting on one huge ball
bearing designed to hold
back millions of gallons of

Tennessee Sampler trade show

Parton is donating first-year pro-
ceeds from her new CD, "Sha-
Kon-O-Hey!," to the nonprofit
Friends of the Smokies organiza-
tion. The title of the album
means "Land of Blue Smoke" in
Cherokee.

Streetcar shuttling
tourists in Savannah
SAVANNAH, Ga. Tourists
visiting Savannah's historic river-
front can now take a free 1930s
streetcar.
The shuttle began running
Feb. 11, covering 10 blocks
along the cobblestone prome-
nade of shops and restaurants
facing the Savannah River.
The city spent about $1 million
to buy the tracks used by the
streetcar and to restore its vin-
tage look. But the streetcar also

water. With a ship's,.passage
each lock takes in 27,000,000
gallons of fresh water in about
the same amount of time that
it takes to fill a bathtub all
by gravity alone, as there are
no pumps. This water from
Lake Gutun is not reused and
is successively flushed into
lower locks and finally into the
ocean.
Afull transit of the canal, ap-
proximately50 miles, requires
about eight hours, depending
on the amount oftraffic. Large
numbers of ships are always
waiting to enter the canal I
counted more than 50 one day
in the staging area near
Panama City. No passage is al-
lowed until the toll is paid and
the check clears the bank
Most tourists will only see
the canal from the deck of a
large cruise ship. If visiting
Panama, however, a local
cruise ship holding about 250
passengers leaves Isla Fla-
menco, on the Pacific side, for
a full transit This ship only


has a 21st century hybrid engine
that runs on electricity and
biodiesel fuel.
NYC skyline on
Philly festival pass
PHILADELPHIA- Philadel-
phia's largest transit agency sold
a pass with a picture of the New
York City skyline on it.
The pass marked with the
Philly Beer Week logo is sold to
discourage people from driving
from one event to another during
the beer festival.
Southeastern Pennsylvania
Transportation Authority spokes-
woman Jerri Williams says peo-
ple liked the look of the pass but
didn't realize the stock photo was
of the wrong city. New passes
were being printed.
The $9 pass is good for one
day of unlimited travel on SEPTA
buses, trolleys and subways and
,many commuter trains. It can be
used any day during the festival,
which runs from March 6 to
March 15.

twice a month, so check ahead
of time and make reservations.
We had made prior reserva-
tions and saw many sad faces
on the dock as we pulled out of
the harbor those who had
not made reservations. Snacks
and lunch are provided on
board.
To add to the canal experi-
ence, the Panama Railway
runs a train every day froni
Panama City to Colon, on the
Atlantic. This railway, built in
1855, a tremendous asset to the
construction of the canal, was
the first transcontinental rail-
road ever built
The train ride is a great ex-
perience, as you get to see the
entire canal, locks and ships,
from a totally different per-
spective.
While the canal is synony-
mous with Panama, and is
unique in the world as one of
mankind's greatest achieve-
ments, it should not divert vis-
itors from seeing the natural

Drop-off in
convention travel
NEW YORK An expert for
Priceline.com says leisure travel-
ers could benefit from a drop-off
in business conventions due to
the economy.
"Leisure travelers who want
the most bang for the buck out of
their vacations this year should
look to the convention cities,
where they'll find big discounts
on everything from vacation
packages and hotels, to theme
parks, attractions and restau-
rants," said Brian Ek of Price-
line.com.
"These cities want and need
those tourist dollars more than
ever, and they're pricing aggres-
sively."
'The big convention cities in-
clude Las Vegas, Orlando,
Chicago, New York, Miami, At-
lanta, Anaheim, New Orleans,
San Francisco, Dallas, San
Diego and Washington," said Ek.
Ek said the Web site is seeing
winning bids at half-off retail
prices for four-star hotels and

beauty for which Panama is fa-
mous.

Special to the Chronicle
The theme at the Feb. 10
meeting was "Ways we con-
vey love." Distinguished
Toastmaster Glenda Hibbitts
was our Toastmaster of the
evening. Distinguished Toast-
master Vicky lozzia gave a
speech that she has literally
been doing for years, the
hippo program that she gives
at the Homosassa Springs
Wildlife State Park. Distin-
guished Toastmaster and
Area Governor Lynda Ryan
did a speech titled "Raising
the bar for the Area Contest,"
outlining plans for the up-
coming contest which will
take place on March 7.
The Table Topics Master
was Distinguished Toastmas-
ter Vicky lozzia. Her table
topics were all about Presi-
dents. Each member was re-
quired to respond as if he or
she were the elected presi-
dent of the U.S. Members told
who they felt the best and
worst President was, the
hardest thing to get used to as
president, the most impor-
tant goal, .and why they think
they were elected.
Th6'word of' the evening
was "epoch," meaning "an


event that brings in a new pe-
riod of time."
Although you may feel that
a public speaking club would
be dry and boring, our meet-
ings are anything but that We
have a lot of fun participat-
ing!
A member, summed up the
goal of Toastmasters. She
said if she makes a mistake
she knows it is okay, because
we have such a supportive
group.
How long can you continue
to miss out on all the fun?

Your Birthday: There's a
strong possibility that new ways
to gratify your personal interests
will become the focal point of
your activities in the year ahead.
Instead of concentrating on the
wants of others, you will fulfill
your own desires.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) -
Eventually, we all learn that the
key to success is predicated
upon our abilities and how we
choose to implement them.
Something might strike you as to
what you can make of this.
Aries (March 21-April 19) -
Get out and mingle with the
crowds, because there's a good
chance you could meet new peo-
ple who will turn into good
friends and become the best
boosters you've ever had.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) -
Although outside events might
establish your timetable a bit
more slowly than you had antici-
pated, the rewards you hope to
receive will be forthcoming. You
won't get shortchanged.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) -
Some recently acquired skills are
likely to be in demand during this
new cycle. The number of appli-
cations will astound you.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) -
Something is apt to develop that
could produce positive ramifica-
tions in a number of your outside
affairs. It might have to do with a
new way of accomplishing things
that you'll hear about.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) This
is one of those fortunate days
where good friends or close as-
sociates might be looking out for
your interests in ways that will be


more effective than you could for,
yourself.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -
There's no law that says you can
only have one objective at a
time. By increasing the number
of ambitious aims, you better the'
odds of accomplishing more than:
one goal being realized at this
time.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -
There's a strong chance you are
being encouraged to run for a
particular post in an important or-'
ganization to which you belong.
Don't hesitate to do so, because
it could lead to something big.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -
Before moving on to something
new, be sure that you get all that
you can from a current enterprise
or endeavor. Make a check list,
and complete it as soon as pos-
sible.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
- If you are a skilled or knowl-
edgeable person who is looking
to better your position in life,
don't despair. You could hear
about something that will be per-
fect for you.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
- Make plans at this time to cor-
rect anything that has been a
hindrance to you concerning
your commercial or financial
dealings. It you put your mind to
it, you will come up with the an-
swer.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
- Something in the back of your
mind with regard to a venture in
which you're involved could be
more dynamic than you think.
You may have a tiger by the tail,
so move on it.

from now, will you remember
where you were?
Craig Barker will, and he
will remember it always.
That's precisely the moment
he became a state champion
- the first one in the history of
Citrus' wrestling program.
Competing in the 119-
pound weight class at the
FHSAA Class 1A State Finals
at the Lakeland Center,
Barker, a senior, had about
eight hours to prepare for his
championship bout after
beating Riverdale's Alex


Paraschuk in the semifinals
earlier in the day. Facing
Barker in the final would be
Cardinal Gibbons' Domingo
Simmons, undefeated at 39-0.
Simmons wouldn't leave

to the mat for two points that
would win him the state title
in the last match of his high-

"He came out banging

him a little bit," Barker said
of Simmons. "I felt him lift up
...and I was there.
"I had it in my head all year
I was going to win it," he said.

Fralick takes second day



lead of Bassmasters Classic


Special to the Chronicle

BOSSIER CITY, La. If
he can close tomorrow, Jami
Fralick will have picked an
excellent time to win his
first-ever BASS event.
On Day Two of the Bass-
master Classic, the relatively
unheralded angler from
Martin, S.D., returned to the
spot that brought him 19
pounds and 3 ounces and a
second-place perch on Day
One. His nearly identical
Day Two catch of 19-6
pushed him to 38-9 and put
him on pace to break the
record total for a three-day
Classic.
. "Your second (Classic), you
know why you're there,"
Fralick told a capacity crowd
at the CenturyTel Center.
You're there to fish and
you're there to win."
Lurking just a half-pound
back is a surging Skeet
Reese, the 2007 Toyota Tun-
dra Bassmaster Angler of the
Year, whose. 22-9 Day Two
stringer on the Red River
was the second-largest of the.
tournament so far.

place himself, Reese is
among a top seven who all sit
within 4-3 of one another,
and who all are aiming to
win their first Classic.
"I like the redemption
thing a lot," he said.
Edwin Evers, Kelly Jor-
don, Aaron Martens and
Brian Snowden, who is


sharing the only hole Fralick
has so far fished, round out
the top six. Behind them is
Dave Wolak and three for-
mer Classic champions -
Mark Davis, Day One leader
Boyd Duckett and Mike Ia-
conelli all in the top 10
and within 5 pounds of the
lead.

second."
All season long, Citrus
head coach Mike Porcelli
never backed off his asser-
tion that Barker, who placed
fourth in the state last year at
112, would take home a first-
place 'ribbon 'this time
around. When his prediction
came true, Porcelli gushed
with pride but also knew it
meant the end of Barker's
time with the program.
"We always had that syn-
ergy together," Porcelli said.
"And it was very emotional
because, hey, I'm not going to
be his coach anymore.
"I've been coaching for a
long, long time, arid he may
be one of the slickest, most
complete wrestlers I've ever
had," he said. "He has a great
passion for the sport, and all
the great champions have
that
"To put something up on
that (wrestling room) wall
where it was blank is really a
wonderful thing for the pro-
gram."
Barker, who finishes his
senior season with a record
of 43-1, said Divisori pro-
grams Boston University and
Applachian State, among oth-
ers, had expressed interest in
his wrestling skills.
"He can do it, he has a big
upside," Porcelli said. "It's
just the tip of the iceberg."
Barker's historic victory
was the leading light on a day
when a total of three county
wrestlers took the podium.
Lecanto's two stalwart sen-
iors proved to lead the way
for the Panthers. Angelo Ar-
cadipane (130) and Steven
Struble (145) both took home
sixth-place ribbons on the
final day of their prep ca-
reers.
"They're not real happy
right now," Lecanto head
coach Scott Roberts said of
his grapplers after both fell
in their fifth-place finals. "I
appreciate their effort for all
four years. Captains of the
team, four-year lettermen -
they'll be irreplaceable."
Arcadipane. had a hard
road ahead after losing his
first match. After winning his
first-round wrestleback, he
then met familiar face Chris
Toles of Citrus in the second-
round wrestleback Toles had
recently defeated Arcadi-

pane twice in crucial situa-
4tions: once in the district
final and again in the re-
gional consolation final. This
time, though, Arcadipane
had Toles figured out and
narrowly took the 1-0 victory
to move on.
"Once I beat (Toles), I knew
I could place at state," Ar-
cadipane said.
The senior had one more
match to win to ensure a rib-
bon, and he did it, 7-0, over
Cardinal Gibbons' Chris
Adrade. He had a chance at
the third-place match but fell
in a 10-2 decision to Lake
Highland Prep's Colt Blod-
gett In the fifth-place match,
Nick Alvarez went up early
and rode out the clock to take
a 5-0 win. Arcadipane had al-
ready earned himself a rib-
bon, however.
"Me and Steven Struble
promised each other we'd
place," he said.
After his teammate made
good on that promise, Struble
held up his end. Winning his
first bout, the senior then fell
in the quarterfinal, 7-1, to
Doral Academy's Mardel
Gabriel. Struble went on to
win two in a row to earn a
shot at the third-place match,
but had two heartbreakers,
losing 3-2 to Bishop Kenny's
John Hamilton in the fourth-
round wrestleback and 1-0 to
Wakulla's Garret Barco in the
fifth-place match.
Four other Citrus wrestlers
qualified for the state tourna-
ment. Seniors Toles (130),
David Zukley (160), sopho-
more Aaron Zukley (189) and
freshman John Dreggors
(285) were eliminated before
securing a place in a medal
match. Toles and both Zuk-
leys each won a match.
Angelo Arcadipane's
brother Sam (135) rounded
out Lecanto's trio of state
qualifiers. He won his first-
round match but fell in two
subsequent bouts to be elim-
inated.
Crystal River's sole entrant
was 103-pounder David Vree-
land. The sophomore, though
young, came in with experi-
ence at the state level after
qualifying last season. Vree-
land started off strong, pin-
ning Bradford's Brian
Blackshear in the first round.
He lost in the quarterfinal,
then defeated district foe
Tyler Forand of Nature Coast
to stay alive, but fell to
Kissimmee's Fox Baldwin to
be eliminated in the third

On this date:
In 1862, Jefferson Davis, al-
ready the provisional president of
the Confederacy, was inaugu-,
rated for a six-year term following
his election in November 1861.
In 1889, President Grover
Cleveland signed an enabling act
paving the way for the Dakotas,
Montana and Washington to be-

Mr. Obama,

W e need a federal
stimulus package of
our own.
One of the worst parts
about our current economic
crisis is that it can be de-
pressing. People are getting
depressed reading the news-
paper. They're depressed
watching the television.
They're depressed when they
open up the mail to discover
their investments only lost 10
percent of their value this
quarter compared to the 25
percent loss from the last
quarter.
We need some positive
stimulation. We need to be
knocked out of these dol-
drums. We need to be
cheered up.
We need a stimulus bill for
Citrus County.
I am sure that President
Obama is paying close atten-
tion to the needs of Citrus
County based on our over-
whelming support of him in
the 2008 presidential pri-
mary and general election.
(Democratic primary: Clin-
ton 55 percent, Obama 21
percent; and the 2008 general
elections: McCain 57 percent,
Obama 41 percent).
On the positive side of this,
many residents claimed it
would be a cold day in hell

hard times in

Tallahassee
While those dealing
with the state
budget crunch be-
lieve better days are ahead,
they're resigned to financial
realities as they go into the
annual legislative session.
Fortunately, one needn't
have an excess of tax dollars
to have a sense of humor.
An assorted mix of Citrus
Countians including mem-
bers of the Leadership Citrus
Class of 2009, the Chamber of
Commerce and the Chronicle
Editorial Board traveled
by bus to Tallahassee on
Wednesday and heard about
the challenges of government
making do with less.
There were some valuable
insights offered by the speak-
ers of the day, but some of the
non-valuable comments were
the real high points.
The bus arrived a few min-
utes later than planned,
which state Sen. Mike Fasano
noted: "Running a little late,
huh? It's because the Sun-
coast Parkway hasn't been
extended."
Laughs and applause en-
sued.
In offering thoughts about
the federal stimulus package,
Fasano smiled and said, "I
believe there's money in
there for my mom's bingo."
A few questions were
posed to the senator that
weren't met with answers the
questioners may have
wished, such as making
greater use of solar power.
However, when he realized a

and practicality



in ordinance


T n dogged pursuit of making
Citrus County a better place
S' for pets, let's not create
rules that'll have Animal Control
workers chasing their tails.
Some provisions in a proposed
ordinance are admirable but
create unrealistic expectations
for staff and, in some cases, pet
owners.
Among measures discussed at
a recent workshop on the new
ordinance were:
S Limiting the tethering of
dogs to one hour per day.
M Repossessing animals
adopted from the county shelter
if they haven't been sterilized
within 30 days.
Capturing feral cats, steriliz-
ing them, then taking them back
to where they were picked up.
For the most part, these. are
'r admirable goals, but..
On tethering: The current or-
dinance allowing tethering for
no more than four
hours a day is more THE I
L : practical. THE 1I
cThdusands of pet New Animrr
owners"-would run ordin
afoul of the law

Changed to one Don't bite
hour. Dogs often than you
aren't allowed in
restaurants, doctor's offices and
6ther places where people rou-
t. inely go for more than an hour
at a time. It'd be nice if everyone
had a big rumpus room for their
dogs, but spending two or three
*O hours tethered to a long chain or
-' runner seems a sacrifice dogs
can easily make to allow owners
of all socio-economic means to
keep a balance in daily life.
Also, the one-hour rule could
be abused by neighbors seeking
retribution against neighbors.
Animal Control personnel could
get sucked into personal dis-
putes, which could prevent them
from addressing their most
pressing tasks.
One questions the ability to
enforce such an ordinance.
On repossessing: As with teth-
ering, pn concept this is a good
idea. In application, it may be
unrealistic.
If someone who adopts a shel-
ter pet balks at providing proof
of sterilization in the allotted
time, who's to say they'll sit
around their house to voluntar-
ily return the pet to a county
staffer? The potential for squfan-
dered staff work hours and gaso-
line is great
If it's necessary to hold adopt-
able pets until they're old
enough to be sterilized, 'then that
seems a more practical consid-
eration. If not, perhaps it's ap-
propriate to require a deposit so

high that few would consider
skipping sterilization for fear of
forfeiting the deposit.
On feral cats: Us i ng tax dollars
to sterilize cats only to return
them to the wild be it rural or
urban does not make sense.
It'd be more logical to use those
dollars to see that pets adopted
to loving, low-income families
are sterilized at a cost that fits
the budget. While euthanizing
feral cats is regrettable, condon-
ing the creation of a society of
homeless "fixed" cats and the
associated costs to the public -
doesn't seem wholly humane or
practical.
Other proposals in the ordi-
nance worth scrutinizing are:
Allowing Animal Control of-
ficers to inspect property to in-
vestigate complaints about'
dangerous dogs.
Charging owners of danger-
ous dogs with a second-degree
misdemeanor, vs. a
civil infraction, for

off more yond the usual
can chew. scope of Animal
Control duties, such
as requiring someone to work on
their day off.
Each of these three proposals is
grounded in some logic but each
needs to be debated to ensure
that there's a tangible improve-
ment that benefits animals, pet
owners and the county coffers.
Regrettably, there are practi-
calities that need to be laid out
before implementing rules that
are emotionally pleasing: How
many employees, work for Ani-
mal Control? What presently
consumes their time at work?
Where can additional work be
ladled on? What tasks can be
discontinued? How much
money's in the budget and what
are the exact costs associated
with each proposal? What are
the consequences of each pro-
posal? How enforceable are the
proposals? Will volunteers com-
mit to taking responsibility for
specific costs and tasks?
Doubtless there's room for im-
provements in Citrus County's
animal control ordinance, but
there are economic and logistic
realities that must not be ig-
nored. That's a tough reality -
especially for the good people
who admirably look to do what's
best fo ur four-legged friends
but identifying the top priori-
ties that can realistically be im-
plemented, funded and carried
out is better than feel-good regu-
lations that can't be achieved.


Honest evaluations,
By all indications, property values have dropped
about 36 percent. Why then are they only lowering
the assessments by 5 or 10 percent? We elected o
officials based on their campaign promises. I knov
takes courage, Mr. Greene, but how about standing
for us as you said you would? Lower the assessme
based on an honest evaluation of the true market
value as of the first of 2009. If the commission
wants more money, let them raise the millage rate
It's the only fair and equitable way.
Why bother?

Column critique
I am a regular reader of "Out the
Window," which exhibits self-dep-
recating humor and is very funny.
However, I found the reasoning in
the Feb. 8 column quite difficult to
grasp, as it appeared to be based
upon the opinion that in "Old Ho-
mosassa," anything goes.
Contrary to Mr. Mulligan's view
of the "folks'infitd-Homosassa.uot
being "big on the idea of rules,"
they formed a study group in 2001
to chart a vision and create a rede-
velopment plan. The resulting plan
was adopted in 2003 as Appendix
H of our Comprehensive Plan.
The Old Homosassa Redevelop-
ment Plan was further imple-
mented by the 2004 adoption of
rules in the Land Development
Code. The mixed-use designation
no longer exists and new commer-
cial uses must be located on collec-
tor roadways (such as Yulee
Drive), and not in residentially
committed areas.
Historically, the coastal areas of
Florida contained a number of op-
erating commercial fisheries. The
Old Homosassa Redevelopment
Plan recognizes the significance of
fisheries to the area's.heritage and
Appendix H states: "Encourage
and maintain commercial fishing
to protect the waterfront from in-
compatible development and to
maintain the historic fishing cul-
ture of Old Homosassa."
The site of the "commercial fish-
ery" now known as "The Freezer"
is virtually surrounded by homes.
Under the Comprehensive Plan,
the location is appropriate for use
as a fishery; but a change of use to
a bar and restaurant is prohibited.
in a residential neighborhood.
Sam Mutch and I represent
Georgeanna Phelps, who lives ad-
jacent to The Freezer and is one of
the neighbors subject to, as Mr.

Mulligan found to be, "a huge nui-
sance." The Chronicle reported se-
rious questions regarding the
owner's application for a beer and
wine license. Further, I believe-,
members of the paper's staff are
aware the present septic tank was
to serve a "commercial fishery,"
posing serious questions regarding
its ability to treat the present vol-
ume of sewage generated by the
bar and restaurant operation and
its potential impact on the adja-
cent waterway. What's more, the
claimed building permit exemp-
tion. for a Seminole-built tiki hut
on the site is laughable, if not for
the seriousness of the issue.

Fiscal conservatives?
In response to Republican com-
plaints about the size of govern-
ment. Reagan and George W
presided over the two largest in-
creases in the size of the federal
government in history.
Complaints about the scope of
power? What about the Patriot Act?
What about signing statements on
hundreds of laws Bush didn't like?
The idea that the stimulus bill is
just pork is similarly wrong. They
claim that the New Deal didn't end
the Depression, World War H did.
The war involved government spend-
ing on airplanes, ships, tanks, guns,
etc. This involved unprecedented in-
creases in manufacturing and, there-
fore, employment of thousands.
The stimulus will accomplish
much of the same. As regards
deficit spending, where were the
Republicans, who controlled Con-
gress for six of the eight years of
the Bush administration, while he
was doubling the national debt?
Fiscal conservatives? Don't
make me laugh.
Tom Geronimo

Good statesmanship
In supporting the federal stimu-
lus bill, Gov. Crist acted in the best
interests of the people of Florida.
This is what statesmen do. He had
already vetoed the most onerous
provisions of the Legislature's at-
tempt to cut the deficit by hurting
the poorest Floridians.
Without the aid to education and
Medicaid that the stimulus pro-
vides, Florida would face a $5 bil-
lion deficit The Republican Party,
led by Sen. Martinez, is upset that
Crist put the people of Florida
ahead of partisan politics. It isn't
surprising Gov. Crist has a 76 per-
cent approval rating.

Just like the Three Little Pigs, we went out to seek our fortune


When I was a little
boy, my favorite
book was a volume
of fairy tales. It included the
story of the three pigs who
went out to seek their for-
tune. The artwork which il-
lustrated the tale showed the
pigs hitting the road with all
of their worldly possessions.
The first porker held a small
suitcase, the second carried a
little satchel and the third
had all of his belongings tied
in a big red bandanna.
In September 1969, my
sweetheart, our firstborn,
Beth, and I left the comfort of
our small hometown and
moved to Orlando. I'd taken a


job with the state as a bank
examiner and we, very much
like the Three Little Pigs,
went out to face the world
and seek our fortune. The
journey would take us from
Orlando to Tallahassee and
finally here to Inverness.
Along the way, during the
past four decades, Cheryl
and I have accumulated a lot
of stuff more stuff than we
need or will ever use.
When I give thought to our
life together, I smile picturing
us as the Three Little Pigs,
driving a U-Haul truck filled
with all of our belongings
.heading to the big city in
search of our fortune. In light

Children like to climb into
bed with their parents and
our little girls were no excep-
tion. We held the line by in-
sisting that they start the
night in their own beds, but
quite often, during the early
morning hours, both Beth and
Becky would join us in our
double bed. Nowadays, some-
times I will "put my foot in my
mouth" by saying something I
shouldn't, but back then it
wasn't uncommon to find a lit-
tle foot other than my own in
my mouth. Needless to say,
such extreme togetherness
wasn't very comfortable.
Cheryl and I agreed to
strain the budget and buy a


king-size bed.
A king-size bed is approxi-
mately 6 and 1/2 feet square; so,
placing such a bed in an 8-by-
10 foot bedroom meant we had
wall-to-wall bed. Even so, in
looking back, that's when I
knew we'd made it Our hori-
zons would expand, we'd add

we'd obtain a lot more stuff, but
I've never felt richer than I did
lying there in the comfort of a
king-size bed with the love of
my life and our two little girls.

Letters to THE EDITOR


Thanks from the Chronicle
On behalf of the Citrus County
Chronicle, we would like to extend a
sincere thank you to the individual
who delivered a newspaper rack that
had been stolen, to our Meadowcrest ,/
office last week
You went above and beyond, sir, by
delivering that rack to us in the back of
your van. It was much appreciated.
Unfortunately, we were not able to
get your name and contact information
at the time you did this great service,
but the act itself has not gone unrecog-
nized or unappreciated.
It is always appreciated when a
member of the general public makes
us aware of Chronicle racks that are
misplaced, damaged, or in nonworking
order. If you are aware of any racks in
any such condition, please let the
Chronicle know by calling (352) 563-
5655 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 2
p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7
a.m. and 11 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.
A sincere thanks is extended to all
members of the community to help us
to be more aware of the condition of
our Chronicle racks and locations.

Effort reaps reward


Our main entrance to Pine Ridge
was completed this summer after
thoughtful, dedicated planning, and
hard work by the Front Entrance Com-
mittee and me as chairwoman.
From the start, the committee had a
vision of the completed project, and
we carried that vision into every detail
of the design. Features and details we
considered and chose included: the
sign maker and design, column builder,


type and color of stone, fencing and
material and even the fig ivy to cover
the common block retaining wall.
These were but a few of the details in-
volved. Our committee worked four
long years to realize our vision of this
entrance. We cannot find the words
sufficient to express our gratitude that
the Pine Ridge main entrance was se-
lected to receive an award from Keep
Citrus County Beautiful. We are hon-
ored to have the Pine Ridge main en-
trance recognized for its contribution
to the beautification of Citrus County,
and our committee to be the recipients
of this award.
I would like to credit the committee
members who helped me put this project
together. Lois Barr, Tom Grimes, Karen
Komatz and Lynn Lambert, the directors
of the Pine Ridge Property Owner Asso-
ciation Board, Mark Schroder and Max-
ine Hulse, and, most of all, the former
president of this board, Harvey Gerber,
who provided needed support and assis-
tance when it mattered most
We are very proud of the outcome and
we hope the County Road 486 entrance
will follow through with the same de-
sign. Continuity is surely the key.

Chairwoman
Pine Ridge Main Entrance Committee

Decrease, not increase
"Progress seeks rate cut" the lead'
front page of (a recent) Citrus County
Chronicle.
Horse hocky! The Progress Energy-
suggested customer rate increase re-
duction from 25 percent to "only" a 12
percent increase is a ridiculous
smokescreen and unacceptable. Rates
shouldn't be increased at all! Logically,
customer rates should be decreased
during this time of rapidly falling


worldwide energy costs.
According to www.Stockcharts.com,
light crude oil prices peaked last July 1
at $147.90, and closed at $42.72 Feb. 12.
By advanced arithmetic, this is a decline
of over $105 per barrel in less than 8 1/2
months. I know, Progress energy uses
other sources of energy, but the fact re-
mainsall energy prices have declined
substantially during this same time.
And, why should customers pay for a
future new facility in Levy County?
Why doesn't Progress Energy reduce
the dividend paid to stockholders in-
stead of increasing customer rates?
Traditionally, future plant expansions
of mostly any type are funded by stock
or bond offerings, and not by cus-
tomers. How can any legislator in his
Sor her right mind allow an expensive
burden of this type to be paid by
Progress Energy customers?
Figures can lie, and liars can figure,
and it's easy to get overwhelmed with all
of Progress Energy's smokescreen num-
bers they're throwing our way to justify
any consumer rate increase. The bottom
line is this. Over the past 8 1/2 months all
worldwide energy prices have declined
significantly, and that's a fact, period.
By raising our rates 25 percent and
then recommending an increase of only
12 percent, doesn't that make us feel
good? It's like being hit with a hammer
and having it feel good when it slows
down. Horse hocky! Our legislators
should be fighting for a Progress Energy
consumer rate decrease, and not for a
lesser increase of "only" 12 percent
And for many customers to pay for a
future nuclear plant in Levy County
which we/they may not live long enough
to realize any benefits from, is like allow-
ing an open wound to become infected.

Foresight
With today being Presidents
Day, we have no mail delivery,
besides other government of-
fices closed. Tomorrow will be
a Tuesday, which some people
seem to think would be the
day to curtail mail service.
Just think of what it would be
if you have holiday Mondays,
no mail on Tuesdays, and then
Wednesday you're going to
have a hard time getting out
from under it. It would take all
week to get the post office
cleared.
Burn ban
I'm calling about the burn
ban. Since the burn ban was
published in the paper, we've
had three good all-night
rains, good soaking rains,
and we've had some more
rain during the day. How long
is this burn ban going to be
in effect? Is this going to be
all winter 'til we go into hurri-
cane season? What's the
story here? Please reply.
Editor's note: The burn ban
will be in place until rescinded.
The Chronicle will report when
that happens.
Stay civil
The economy has, and will
continue to, affect us all. To
compensate, we must be
more patient, courteous and
gracious. Because we are not
spending like a few years
ago, you will not find as
many service personnel in
the retail sector. It's purely
economics. So don't gripe
and project your bad behav-
ior on those of us-working on
a Citrus County wage, as we
still feel fortunate to have our
jobs. We greet you with a
smile and good customer
service, and we wish every
register was open, too. So
manage your time accord-
ingly, as I don't need to hear
you're late for an appoint-
ment or yob don't like wait-
ing in line. Rudeness and
negativity only reflect your
lack of patience.
Blowing smoke
The dust-up over Michael
Phelps debunks the non-
sense that only losers smoke
marijuana.
School sale
I'm trying to find out how
to get in touch with some-
body (about) if they're going
to have a big yard sale at the
Hernando Elementary
School, the Heritage School
on (U.S.) 41 and (State Road)
200 by Parsons Point.
There's nothing in the paper
and you can't reach nobody
by phone. I was wondering.
Every year they usually have
a yard sale down there, but
there's nothing been in the
paper. Last time they had
one, it was a fundraiser for
the nonprofit Hernando Her-


itage Council of Citrus
County. Could somebody put
something in the,paper about
that, when they're going to
have their next big yard sale?
Benefits boondoggle
...What's sauce for the
goose is sauce for the gan-
der. Or is it? We salaried GM
retirees lost our health care
effective Jan. 1. Because of
the union, hourly retirees still
have the benefit of health
care. If it comes to an im-
passe where GM goes belly-
up because of the continuing
costs of health care, why are
the hourly retirees still able
to enjoy these benefits?
Lucky guy
To the person who called in
and said that in six months we
won't know the America he
loves because of the new ad-
ministration: If losing jobs,
losing homes and being des-
perate is the America you love,
I hope you're right. Maybe you
haven't been affected by any
of the mess yet. In that case,
for the time being, you are one
lucky individual.
No one cares
To the lady who called in
about the junky house in her
neighborhood and suggested
the health department take a
look at it: Let me enlighten
you. The health department
doesn't care, Environmental
Health doesn't care, our com-
missioners certainly don't
care and the governor doesn't
care. No one cares. We have a
house in our neighborhood in
Foxwood Estates that's
loaded with mold. They were
making drugs in it and no
one cares. They're trying to
pass it off on some poor, un-
suspecting soul, not caring if
some child dies in there...
Capone correction
This is in response to a
Sound Off on Tuesday, Feb.
17, titled "Posthumous par-
don," which concerns Al.
Capone. This guy claims that
he was sent to prison for the
rest of his life. Not true. He
actually died in southwest
Florida. I'm not sure if it was
Miami, but he died in Florida
from the syphilis that he con-
tracted many years ago.
Too many people
To the (person) who wrote
in the paper about the mana-
tees, that we're saving the
manatees, saving the mana-
tees, and there are more
manatees now than there ever
has been before: I don't quite
understand your thinking...I
think saving them and having
them expand in population is
good for our future. Our world
is overpopulated. Are you also
suggesting that we should
start getting rid of people
now because of the excess
number of human beings?

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


Personal freedoms and philosophical differences


How it is that two
equally learned peo-
ple can view our na-
tion and reach opposite
opinions as to what is govern-
ment's role? Because there is
disagreement as to whether
human nature is fixed by ge-
netics or changeable under
the influence of reason.
Those who believe our "na-
ture" is fixed point out that a
robin invariably builds a
"robin's nest" regardless of
whether the hatchling was
raised by humans or by ori-
oles in their nest. It cannot
learn to behave as an oriole.
But humans are not robins.
Human intellect, others be-.
lieve, is so powerful that it
can overcome inborn behav-
iors. Reason can curb self-in-
terest so that all work
together for the common
good for social and economic
justice and abundance. All
can be free of the struggle for
survival, free from basic


wants and able to interact
with others in a communal
fashion to pursue life's pleas-
ures.
This disagreement regard-
ing human nature and the
powers of human reason ap-
peared in the 18th century
during the Enlightenment.
Some philosophers came to
see customs, traditions,
norms of human behavior -
the existing society as an
impediment to advancing hu-
manity to a higher level
through use of reason and in-
tellect Some thought that re-
ligious beliefs, the family
structure and even constitu-
tional laws tied society to the
past and slowed progress.
Most thought that there
would be no need to change
society by force. They were*
certain that the elite who had.
moved beyond self-interest
and achieved moral superi-
ority could easily convince
and educate the rest to make


the changes.
A few, however, saw that
existing societies would re-
sist the necessary change be-
cause of costs and
disruptions that change
would bring about They saw
that an elite group
would have to
seize control of
government, by
whatever means
necessary, to bring
about the change
which, they be-
lieved, would ben-
efit all.
Belief in the ab- Dr. Willi,
solute power of OT
"reason" explains
today's liberal- VOI
progressive view
of government It is the view
of academia, many college-
educated, the wealthy elite
and Democrat leaders -
groups all wanting to im-
prove society by government
mandate.


a
H


Other Enlightenment
philosophers saw basic
human behavior as unchang-
ing through centuries of dif-
ferent governments,
economies and wars. They
accepted imperfect societies
as the best out-
comes possible
under existing cir-
cumstances. They
saw changes would
come gradually as
the result of the
sum of successes
and failures as
each individual
m Dixon tended to his own
-ER, needs. They saw
customs, traditions
DES and laws as neces-
sary to structure
society, the accumulated wis-
dom of the people.
Those who doubted the
supreme power of the intel-
lect did not believe any elite
group of leaders could es-
cape its own flawed human


nature. Nor could the group
gather and deal with all the
information, the needs and
wants, the motivations of
every member of the society.
They knew changes enforced
by elite leaders would have
unintended consequences,
likely making society worse.
These are the views sup-
porting today's conservative
political philosophies. Con-
servatives .believe govern-
ment large enough to enforce
the laws and secure the na-
tion but small enough to per-
mit the maximum individual
freedoms including fail-
ures best serves society.
They believe that constructs
such as "social justice," "eco-
nomic justice" and the "gen-
eral welfare" are vague and
cannot be agreed upon as to
meaning and therefore can-
not be acted upon. They know
that government actions to
make societal changes, de-
spite the best of intentions,


are costly and most often fail.
For most of the years since
1930 and FDR's presidency,
our government has been
dominated by progressives.
How you evaluate this period
will depend upon your phi-
losophy. I see gradual erosion
of personal freedoms.

Letters to THE EDITOR


'House' clarification
I am responding to the letter from
Jack Flynn (Feb. 17) "House of
cards." First, the bill that President
Carter signed into law in 1977 was
the Community Reinvestment Act
(CRA) not Community Redevelop- ,
mentAct It was intended to address
the lending practice known as
redlining. Redlining involved mark-
ing a red line on a map to delineate
areas where banks would not invest
regardless of the credit-worthiness
of the loan applicant Redlined
areas were usually urban areas pop-
ulated by low- and moderate-income
people who tended to be minorities.
Second, this act clearly empha-
sized that an institution's CRA ac-
tivities should be undertaken in a
safe and sound manner and did not
require institutions to make high-
risk loans that could bring losses to
the institution. Several legislative
changes were made to this act in
ensuing years, but none required
banks to make risky loans.
Housing advocacy groups pro-
vided early warnings about the
dangers inherent in lowering
credit standards. These groups
alo led the fight against sub-
prpne lending in low and moder-
4*',


ate-income communities starting
in the 1990s. However, sub-prime
loans were so profitable banks ag-
gressively marketed them, even
over the objections of groups like
the much-maligned ACORN.
There has been much debate
about the extent of CRA influence on
poor lending practices with experts
on both sides qf the issue. Several
facts stand out in this debate. Inde-
pendent mortgage companies made
high-risk loans at more than twice
the rate of the banks and thrifts. Most
CRA loans were not among the loans"
that have contributed to the current
debacle. A 2008 study by Traiger &
Hinckley LLP, a law firm that coun-
sels financial institutions on CRA
compliance, found that "CRA regu-
lated institutions were less likely to
make sub-prime loans and when
they did, interest rates were lower
CRA banks were also half as likely to
resell the loans."
There is no doubt that the lack
of government oversight, promoted
by banking lobbyists, contributed
mightily to this crisis, but just be-
cause you decide to shop in a store
with no security cameras doesn't
mean you are required to shoplift

Waste of money
Liberals believe massive gov-
ernment spending is necessary,
executive-minded conservatives
do not. Confused taxpayers need
to understand economic truths
and confirmed history to decide.
Money spent by government
originates from taxation, borrow-
ing, printing it, or some combina-
tion thereof. Money generated
from taxation is taken away from
the private economy. Money gener-
ated from borrowing increases the
national debt; it is not lent to busi-
nesses or individuals, and nearly
doubles when you add fees/inter-
ests. Money printed creates infla-
tion and devaluation of the dollar
Government is inflated with in-
efficient bureaucrats,, red tape,
and overspending habits. Stimulus
funds get wasted and produce lit-
tle benefit This stimulus includes:
$600 million to upgrade cars used
by bureaucrats, $30 million to save
the salt marsh harvest mouse in
Nancy Pelosi's home state, $206
million for Hollywood filmmakers,
$600 million for a hybrid dog park,
$100,000 for doorbells, etc.'
Keynesian spending ideas never
work During the Great Depression,


government increased federal debt
from 16 percent GPD in 1929 to 44
percent in 1939, while delaying eco-
nomic recovery. During 1965-80 mas-
sive spending and redistribution
efforts increased poverty, wasted bil-
lions, strangled the stock market,
and created "stagflation." President
Reagan ended the worst recession
since the Depression. The market
went from 900 to 2500, inflation
dropped from 13.5 percent to 41 per-
cent, unemployment dropped to 5.5
percent, interest rates dropped from
20 percent to 10 percent, income
jumped from $20,000 to $24,000, and
consumer confidence from 74.4 to
116. During the Depression huge
government spending and protec-
tionist programs turned the 1929
market crash into a decade-long db-
pression. Because of Reagan, Wall
Street survived the 1987 stock mar-
ket crash, and America experienced
20 years of economic growth.
Market-based, supply-sided eco-
nomic principles bring recovery
and prosperity. Keynesian govern-
ment spending programs perpetu-
ate economic instability and
deplete resources.
President Obaria stampeded this
anti-stimulus bill to prevent opposi-
tion to a shameful spending waste


of taxpayer money. Past economic
blunders will be repeated by this
administration because it embraces
the iron triangle of interest groups,
bureaucracy and overspending.

Lawsuits aplenty
Smoking is the major cause of
lung cancer which has infected
over 350,000 Americans.
To stop smoking, all sorts of cre-
ative educational programs have
been developed since the Indians
taught early colonists to inhale.
Every state has passed severe taxing
laws which brought the price of 20
cigarettes to over $5. Now, a Florida
lawsuit against Phillip Morris by a
citizen awarded $4.5 million by the
Florida Supreme Court, seemingly
will put an end to the 20 percent of
the population which still smokes.
Currently, there are already
8,000 lawsuits filed in Florida
against tobacco companies.
The bankruptcy of a Georgia cor-
poration regarding salmonella
contamination will just be peanuts
compared to the avalanche of law-
suits filed in 50 states.

Lots of hate
I'm reading in the Sound Off for Tuesday, Feb.
'17, all in this Hot Corner "Stimulus," it sounds
like a lot of haters here in Citrus County.,..
Hope you're happy
Well, all you people who voted for Obama
I hope you're happy. Now he's going to
have the most ridiculous spending that we've
ever seen. It's going to crush us people that
are working and having to go out and get two,
and three jobs. I hope you're happy. And peo-
ple that didn't vote for Obama, they just have
to get busy and write your congressmen and
tell them whether they voted for it or not
how ybu feel, and we just have to keep try-
ing to knock some sense into Washington.


man John Thrumston and
County Administrator An-
thony Schembri around. That
way, when the two prepare to
duke it out, the facilitator
could step in and find con-
sensus. Or he could use hand-
cuffs. Either way, it would
certainly be a full-time job
and put an unemployed facil-.
itator to work.
We could seriously use
federal stimulus dollars to
finish the last stretch of
County Road 486 from Tim-
berlane to County Road 491.
It seems a little silly to have
this road .four-laned for 8
miles and then have it go
back into a two-lane road just
a quarter mile before the in-
tersection.
There is much talk
about stimulus projects that
must be "shovel ready" if we
are going to get part of the
$800 billion. I don't know.
what a "shovel ready" project
looks like but I do have an
idea. Maybe all of the goop
that has been collecting on
the bottom of our rivers and
lakes for the last 25 years
:could be removed as part of
the stimulus plan. We could
hire a bunch of people and
give them some shovels so
they could dig out the muck
It would help tourism, pro-
vide jobs, and involve shov-
els. A clear winner.
There are some "shovel-
ready" projects available at
the county animal shelter, but
the smell keeps folks pretty
stimulated to get those piles
moved on a daily basis. And
it's a good practice for our

Sheriff Jeff Dawsy Obama
needs to give him a call and
develop some Citrus County
strategies. And I have it from
good sources that the sheriff
promises not to purchase a
French helicopter with any
stimulus dollars and will in-
stead focus on buying a good-
old Made-in-the-USA
helicopter so he can put fel-
low Americans to work Sher-
iff Dawsy is a team player
We've got to admit to
President Obama that we still
have some work to do with
the knuckleheads at the Vis-
itFlorida office in Tallahas-
see. The state tourism
organization, sponsored cur-
rently by Florida tax dollars,
hired a telemarketing firm
from Missouri to promote
Florida tourism because ap-
parently none of the 1,422
telemarketing firms in
Florida had the expertise to
handle the job. The Visit-
Florida folks need the kind of
stimulating you get from
standing on the unemploy-
ment line.
The bottom line is that we
really need a good stimulat-
ing in Citrus County and
we're depending on Presi-
dent Obama to extend a help-
ing hand. We are ready and
willing to "change" ifyou just
give us the opportunity

comment being offered was
going to be flattering, Fasano

you're thanking me."

A sign by the doors leading
into the House of Represen-
tatives chambers had yet to
be updated. It listed Rep. Ray
Sansom as the House
speaker, which was funny in
a non-funny way. Fortunately,
the guy who stepped in as
speaker when Sansom re-
cently stepped aside was the
guy who met with our group.
That was Rep. Larry Cretul of
Marion County.
Tongue-in-cheek, Cretul of-
fered an option to combat the
economic woes: "We thought
about having a bake sale for
the problems we're having."

Cretul was followed by De-
partment of Children and
Families Secretary George
Sheldon whose memorable
opening line was, "It's easy to
be humble if you get beaten
down a lot"
OM.
State Sen. Charlie Dean
followed Sheldon and, as the
DCF chief was exiting the
chambers, Dean turned to
him and said, "Squeeze hard,
we need all the blood out of
that turnip we can get."
MEN
Rep. David Rivera, chair-
man of the House Govern-
mental Operations
Committee, offered the per-
spective of a veteran legisla-


tor, having served in the
House since 2002. While he
may have had humorous or
clever comments, I missed
several minutes of his presen-
tation because a couple of us
stepped out of the chambers
and the door promptly locked
behind us. That turned out to
be a mixed blessing.
While standing on the out-
side, wondering how to get
back in without causing a
commotion, state Rep. Ron
Schultz wandered up.
Schultz was in his third week
of a bout with pneumonia,
feeling awful and not en-
thused about being locked
out of the House chambers.
He said "follow me," then
led us through a series of
hallways, offices and doors
that wrap around the back of
the House chambers. It was a
maze that included the
House speaker's office. I will
admit, it was pretty cool to
emerge from a door intended
for dignitaries, then look out
at the faces of our group..
It was about that time that
Rep. Rivera was winding
down. In his parting com-
ments he said, "When you
guys fire employees, I'm sure
you feel as awful as anyone."
He said that in reference to
"right-sizing the public sec-
tor"
SEE
Ailing Rep. Schultz opened
his presentation by saying,
"I've got about as much en-
ergy as a jellyfish."
All in attendance were
aware of Schultz's illness and
surprised that he did rise to
the occasion and he really
did.


Referring to Rep. Rivera,
Schultz said, "You've just
heard from someone in
(House) leadership with real
clout. Now you're going to
hear from the other end of
the spectrum. I've got about
as much clout as a doorstop."
While his style is always
entertaining, Schultz didn't
pull any punches and used
phrases including "blood and
guts" and "flesh and bone" in
commenting on managing the
state budget
Perhaps the most insightful
comment of the day was
made by Schultz: "Booms and
busts are the very history of
Florida. We just don't seem to
have the ability to learn from
them."
MME
Despite the levity of the
various comments from the
various dignitaries, Schultz's
"booms and busts" observa-
tion really hit on something.
And while he remains rela-
tively low in the House hier-
archy, he articulates puzzling
aspects of state government
as well as he navigates the
inner-sanctum of the Florida
House of Representatives.
It'd do lawmakers and citi-
zens well to try to keep their.
humor about them through
these trying times, but if we
continue to fail to learn from
the hard times then the re-
turn to good times will be
short-lived which won't be
funny at all.

Ci-mus COUNIY (FL) C'nRoivicu~ COMMENTARY SUNDAY, FI~anu~Y 22, 2009 C5~


Generation gap
I finally figured out what
the problem is: President
Obama is a 21st-century
president. Congress is still
living in the 19th century and
using those kinds of solu-
tions.
Sore losers
I love the way the Republi-
cans are screaming that the
Democrats are having a
power grab. After all the
years that they had all the
power, everything went down
the tubes. What is wrong with
those Republicans? It's either
all Republican or nothing, as
far as they're concerned. I'm
glad they're out of power
right now because when they
are, we go down the tubes
with them and it happens
each and every time. When
will you voters really realize
that unless there are Democ-
rats involved in our govern-
ment, that things are going
to rotten and that's the way it
has been and that's the way
it will be.
De-verify
Before passing the eco-
nomic stimulus, the Democ-
.-. rats removed E-Verify from
the bill. E-Verify is a tool that
is critical for companies to
verify that a new employee
meets all legal requirements
for working in the USA. With-
out E-Verify, the door is open
to hundreds of thousands of
illegal workers to obtain jobs
created by the economic
stimulus. Sounds to me that
votes are more important to
Democrats than creating jobs
for legal American workers.

is getting totally out of hand.
When is the public going to
start raising some Cain
about this and why isn't the
press doing something about
it? The cats, the dogs are
being brought in in grocery
baskets and on carts and it's,
happening in Inverness in
both the major new stores,
and it's ridiculous. There's
some people that are very,
very allergic to animals, and
I, f6r one, am one of those. I
am one of those that are al-
lergic to dogs and yet I love
dogs, but I will not stand for
them being around me when
I'm that way. So the public


should keep them out
stores.
Sad loss
It's Saturday
morning (Feb. 14). I
don't know of any-
one else in Citrus
County that will be
missed as much as
David LaPerle. He
was loved and
thought so much of C
by so many people
- dear friends for
many years, his fa-
ther, his mother, all of I
family. He's going to be
sorely missed in this cc


of the


nity. God bless his family.
Pray for them.

that is legal? Then what ef-
)mmu- fect would it have? He


shouldn't be' penalized for
something that would be
legal,, but the picture would
still have the same effect. So
I.don't see what the real big
deal about it is. It's not like
he was doing anything worse
than that. A lot of people do
a lot of things worse than
that. They should just let
him be.

ation on that, his opinion. "
The only thing is, probably A.
the people that grow the pot
in those other states, it's -
'probably realistically a gov- -
ernment-funded agency .
where they probably get ',
probably $25,000 for a '
plant, to grow one, just like .
NASA where you've got to
pay $20,000 for a toilet seat%.-,
That would be taking other
money out of their pocket '-.'
and they probably wouldn't
buy it because it would be : -
too cheap.
Drop your pay
In a time when we might
have to lay off schoolteach-
ers because of a tight econ-
omy, why do our school *
board members not become
volunteers like in all other
states, and notaccept a
salary? After all, the state of '
Florida did just recently pass
a law where they can refuse
their salary and give it back
to the schools. They repre-
sent five teachers. Most of
them are already retired, so
they don't need the income.
Why doesn't our school
board step up and help the
community and lead on a
way we can help preserve
jobs for teachers.
Big, warm hug to all
A big, warm hug and
many, many thanks to the
customer who turned in my
purse I had forgotten at the
Homosassa Wendy's on Fri-
day (Feb. 13). I didn't see
you, but someone much ,
more important did and you
will be rewarded. Thank you .
so much. And applause to
the staff at Wendy's for see-
ing that it was returned to
me so promptly. Thanks a

The 11th annual SCORE
Golf Classic will be held on
Monday, March 23, 2009 at
Sugarmill Woods Country
Club in Sugarmill Woods.
SCORE is a volunteer organ-
ization that provides free
counseling to new and exist-
ing businesses in Citrus


County. Thanks to the sup-
port of many golfers and
non-golfers alike our past
tournaments have been very
successful. As in previous
years we are looking for
sponsors, players and
donors for giveaway prizes.
For only $100 you can be-
come a hole or tee sponsor
with your name prominently
displayed on placards at
greens or tees. In addition
you can receive greens fees
for a foursome for a free
round of golf for your future
personal or business use
during 2009 at Sugarmill
Woods Country Club. Spon-
sors will also be.recognized
in an appreciation an-
nouncement in the tourna-
ment program and
published in the Citrus
County Chronicle. Hole or
tee sponsors who bring a
foursome to this event will
also receive a $40 discount
on the tournament greens
fees in addition to the
greens fees for a future four-
some. The individual player
fee is $60 and includes
greens fees, golf cart, lunch,
beverages and prize oppor-
tunities. If you are not part
of a foursome we will assign
you to one. There are prizes
for each of three flights,
hole-in-one contest, putting
contest, chipping contest
and other prize opportuni-
ties. For additional informa-
tion contact John Bower at
352-249-1236.

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


Red salvia wildflower a butterfly magnet


No local butterfly or
wildlife garden would
be complete without
Salvia coccinea,
commonly called red
salvia or tropical
sage. This native *"
wildflower ranges
throughout the L
Southeastern United
States from Florida ,
north to North Car- '
olina and west to ::
Mississippi in Zones
8 to 10. Jane'
Red salvia has JAh
bright red, tubular,
two-lipped flowers A v1,
that bloom from frost
to frost late February to De-
cember in Citrus, Levy and
Marion counties. In protected
nooks, salvia may flower all
winter. Showy spikes of dozens
of 1-inch flowers are erect.
Flowers produce sweet nectar
to lure hummingbirds and a
host of butterflies to the garden.
Large swallowtail butterflies
with long tongues (proboscis)
commonly sip from salvias.
Giant, spicebush, tiger, zebra,
palomedes and other swallow-
tails relish the plentiful nectar.
Smaller longwings, fritillaries,
skippers and sulphurs visit in
turn.
Planting nectar flowers as
well as the caterpillar's specific
host plant will ensure a suc-
cessful butterfly garden. Each
species of adult female butter-
fly lays eggs singly or in clusters
only on one or two certain
plants. Eggs usually hatch in
three to four days, then cater-
pillar larvae eat the host plant


t
I

\


Caterpillars eat and eat for
about two weeks. They shed
their tight skins several times
and grow into new,
larger ones. Once
fully grown, a cater-
pillar crawls off to
hide under leaves or
eaves to rest in a
pupa case or
chrysalis, where it
changes into an adult
butterfly.
In frost-prone
Weber areas, treat tender,
E'S short-lived perennial
S. salvia as an annual.
'.j fs When frost kills top
growth, snip off un-
sightly stems a few inches
above the ground and add them
to the compost pile. If roots are
protected with no more than an
inch or two of pine needles or
natural leaf litter, old salvia
plants may re-sprout in the
spring. Salvias can live two or
three years and reach 4 to 6 feet
tall in southern, frost-free
areas.
Provided fresh seed can fall
on the soil, it will readily sprout
any time of year. In January I
scatter dry seed in a. tray of
well-drained soil mix made of
half sand and half organic com-
post, then set the tray in light
shade. Mist frequently but don't
keep the soil too wet.
Once seedlings reach an inch
tall with more than three sets of
opposite leaves, I pick them out
and transplant a few into 4-inch
pots. Nipping off the growth tip
at this stage will force the
seedlings to sprout low stems
from the remaining leaf nodes

producing a bushier, more com-
pact plant.
These new plants are ready
for the garden after the danger
of frost is past. Packets of seed
cost about a dollar. Seedlings in
4-inch pots cost 50 to 75 cents.
Leaves are a sage gray-green,
oval in shape with crinkly,
veined texture and toothed
edges. When crushed, they
have a pleasant, mild sage
aroma.
Not toxic to humans or pets,
you can use dried salvia leaves
as an herb in sachets and pot-
pourris or brewed in a flavor-
ful, aromatic tea infusion.
Selected red salvia varieties
are grown in pink, white,
salmon, and red colors. Lyre-
leaved sage, Salvia lyrata, has
purple-blue flowers. This an-
nual native plant grows to 3 feet
tall and as wide in disturbed
sites, as well as in tended gar-
dens. Readily available com-
mercially, it's often used in
landscapes.
I've sucked on the flower
base and find the blue is not as
sweet or full of nectar as the.
red salvia. Butterflies and hum-
mingbirds frequent the blue
sage less frequently than the
red when both are planted side
by side in my garden.

In these tough economic times,
saving money at the grocery
store can certainly stretch
your food budget Planning ahead
helps you to create a good list of
what you need and what
you already have. Plan-
ning meals and snacks -4
for the week will be eas-.
ier if you have both lists
available. After you
know what you have
and what you would like
to make for meals for
the week, you can check
the ads for what's on
sale. Be flexible, as you Monica
may be able to take ad- CONS
vantage of sales by SCI
changing your meals SCI
slightly to substitute the
sale items.
Before you go to the store, you
need to know your food budget
Think about how much it costs
each month to feed your family. A
good way to figure this out is to
keep track of all the money you
spend on food for one week: be
sure to write down everything!
Then multiply that number by 4 -
this will tell you about what it
costs to feed your family for a
month.


Some helpful hints to save
money while food shopping:
N Never go shopping when you
are hungry. Hungry shoppers tend
to buy too much and usually make
poor food choices.
Shop alone, if pos-
sible. If you must take
children with you, give
them a job to do.
Compare prices by
using unit prices and
comparing store
brands with national
brands.
Bonsett U At checkout, watch
UMER the price scanners and
check receipts care-
NCE fully for price errors.
There are many fact
sheets on saving money and.
specifically on saving money at
the grocery store available on the
UF/IFAS Extension Web site at
www.solutionsforyourlife.com.
Don't forget the Home and Com-
munity Educators are having their
biannual community yard sale
from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in-
side the Citrus County Auditorium
in Inverness. If you hurry you may
be able to rent a table for the event

container for far less than indi-
vidual packets. And many in-
gredients can be used for
multiple recipes. One reader,
Karen in Kansas, says: "You
can't always make it cheaper,
but you can nearly always make
it better (for you). If I can't make
it better and make it for less,
then we would only rarely, or
never, include that food in our
diet"
COMBINATION: Often, a
combination of from-scratch
and semi-homemade ingredi-
ents is the best option. It allows
some shortcuts but isn't com-
pletely packed with preserva-
tives. For example, if you're
making soup, you might use
canned broth instead of making
your own stock. But still use
fresh vegetables.
CONVENIENCE: If you have
a stocked pantry, it's going to be
easier to reach into the cup-
board and cook than it will be
to shop for ingredients. Also,
fast food and junk food might
be cheaper, but they're not
healthy. Availability can be a
factor, too. Some people have
farmers' markets or salvage
grocery stores nearby, or their
grocery stores offer good
coupon policies and sales.
CAPABILITY AND KNOWL-
EDGE: Not everyone is good at
cooking and baking. One
reader, Nancie, says: '"I cannot
bake a cake or piecrust from
scratch to save my life. No mat-
ter how much coaching and
how many 'no fail' recipes I
have been given. Yes, folks, it is
possible to fail at a no-fail
recipe. I don't make these from
scratch. I don't see the point in

wasting flour, sugar, etc., on
something that I can't make. We
will not eat it, and it'll get the
obligatory counter time and
then will get pitched." Some
convenience foods make sense
for some people. But it's worth
taking the time to at least try to
learn cooking skills. Start with
the foods that you typically
enjoy at restaurants or buy
ready-made.

Use it up. Wear it out. Make
do. Do without It's a sign of the
times. Unless of course, you've
been a smart, frugal cookie all
along.
But if this is all new to'you,
you might be able to use a few
tips on how to take care of what
you have so you can avoid rush-
ing out to buy something new.
No. 1 tip: Stay home. Challenge
yourself to simply stay out of


stores for a while. If you need
something, check secondhand
sources. Don't let anyone con-
vince you to spend money you
don't have to buy stuff you don't
need. Frugal people aren't anti-
consumers. We're simply wise
spenders who detest wasteful-
ness. How do you resist tempta-
tion to buy something new?
How do you prolong the life of
what you own?
Here are a few ways.
SHOES: Clean and polish
your shoes. Shoe polish: Re-
member that stuff? A Mr. Clean
magic eraser or old toothbrush
can do wonders on sneakers,
too. Wadded newspaper in-
serted into your shoes or a shoe
tree will help shoes keep their
shape.
APPLIANCES: Keep them
clean. Replace filters and vac-
uum coils, and pull them away

from the walls for efficiency
Consider repairing appliances
before replacing them. Keep.
the owner's manuals for refer-
ence purposes.
CLOTHING: Learn basic
skills such as stain removal, fol-
lowing clothing-care instruc-
tions, sewing buttons and
simple mending. Air-dry cloth-
ing when possible. Instead of
tossing out clothing, try to find
ways to reuse the material.
Have a simple wardrobe. Ten
basic pieces can be mixed and
matched to achieve a different
look One reader, Cindy- T. in
Oregon, says: "We wear our
good clothes out in public.
When we get home, we (includ-
ing the parents) change into
play clothes (stained clothes
that aren't acceptable to wear
in public). When my husband's
dress shirts get too worn for


him to wear to work, I wear
them at home."
LINENS: Worn bath towels
and sheets can be cut into
smaller sections and used as
dust and cleaning rags.
FURNITURE: This really
applies to anything, but keep it
clean. Tend to spills immedi-
ately so stains don't set. Rotate
your cushions so they wear
evenly.- Vacuum upholstery.
Move your furniture to prevent
carpet wear and sun fading.
Achieve a home makeover sim-
ply by rearranging what you al-
ready own. Periodically move
accessories from tables, too. If
your couch is a little worn, add
a slipcover.
FOOD: Use up leftovers.
Look through your pantry and
freezer, and start using older in-

Controlling indoor humidity *0


levels important for homes -L


We just recently renovated .
our house. It was a rather
large renovation: We made a
cape a colonial. Now we have really
low humidity levels, to the point that f,-, i
the floors are separating and the
moulding is all cracking. We never ,'..
had this before.
Who is responsible for the humidity .
level in a new house and what can we
do? Kristen, Red Bank, N.J.
A: Controlling indoor humidity lev- Dwight
els is important to both the health of HC
the occupants and to the overall well- MAINTI
being of the home's structure and con-
tents.
By controlling humidity levels, you can also re-
duce energy costs associated with heating and
cooling the home. By adding moisture to the
home's indoor environment, you can lower the
thermostat by a few degrees and still remain
comfortably warm in the winter.
In summer, remove moisture from the envi-
ronment and you will feel cooler
How you add or reduce moisture levels de-
pends on the type of heating and cooling system
you have. Most residential homes are heated by
either a boiler and radiator system or by an oil-
or gas-fired, forced-air furnace. To add humidity
with a forced-air furnace, a humidifier is added
to the supply side of the ductwork. The humidi-
fier must be installed in an accessible area for
ease of maintenance and should not be located
directly above the furnace where water vapors
and mists can lead to rusting.
An in-room humidifier can be used with either

system. I would recommend one that
works by evaporation or by steam
rather than by sonic waves.
Water vapor that is created by dis-
turbing the water (sonic waves) and
a then forcing it through a small open-
S'j in the original water supply. The air-
borne minerals can then attach them-
selves to circuit boards of expensive
electronic equipment or leave a
Barnett residue on furniture.
ME If you choose a sonic humidifier,
NANCE use only distilled water- in the unit's
reservoir. To lower the humidity, use
the home's air conditioner or a separate dehu-
midifier centrally located in a room or in the
basement or crawlspace.
Make sure a central air conditioner is prop-
erly sized for the home. If the air conditioner
cools the home too quickly, it may not remove
enough moisture to be comfortable. A rule of
thumb would be to have 1 ton of cooling for every
1,000 square feet of conditioned area. If you have
any questions concerning the size and adequacy
of the cooling system, have the unit checked by a
qualified HVAC (heating venting air condition-
ing) technician.

Continued from Page E17


Ever crack an egg and the
shell falls into the bowl? The
first tip is an easy solution to
that problem. You won't have to
fish the shell out with a spoon
or your finger. Add eggshells to
your kitchen compost, too. They
can be used in the garden.
EGG TIPS: Always crack your
eggs into a separate bowl first
before you add them to other in-
gredients. It saves your ingredi-
ents if you have an egg that's not
so fresh; plus, it's easier to catch
eggshells if you accidentally
have some stragglers. Remem-
ber that eggshells act as mag-
nets to other eggshells. Use a
bigger piece of eggshell to get a
small bit out Erika, Florida
REUSE BREAD BAGS: I
throw a few in the camper for
wet clothes or for carsickness.
-Ali, Indiana
CARPET TIPS: Married to
the flooring business here, so I
do have a few tips. Don't ever
use powdered odor removers
on carpet Invest in a good-vac-
uum, and vacuum daily. The
stretching damage is far out-
weighed by the damage the
sand does to the fibers. You can
have someone restretch your
carpet for way cheaper than re-
placing one that's been dam-
aged by dirt. If you are getting
new carpeting, invest in a qual-
ity pad. Some carpets with a
glue-based backing for holding
the fibers in place are ruined
quickly by steam cleaners.
Know what you have before you
start cleaning it. If you don't
know whav, it is, get a company
to clean it for you. Spot clean
when some hing spillkbh the


carpet, and quickly blot up
spills. Do not leave carpets wet
or damp. Missy, Colorado
REPLICATE: My best
friend's son is turning 10 this
week, and he loves ice fishing.
In a popular catalog, I found a
tackle box filled with gummy
worms and fith and so on. It
was $20, well over my budget. In
the city I live in, we have a dol-
lar store. I found a girls' bead
box in blue (looks just like a
tackle box), and I'll go to the
candy store to get the gummy
worms. I'm very happy that I
could re-create this at a frac-
tion of the cost. Steph, Maine
SOAP SLIVERS: I put them
in the bottom of my hamper to
keep it a little fresher. I also
stick the slivers between the
towels and washcloths in the
linen cabinet, also to keep them
smelling fresh. Joyce P, e-
mail
RECYCLE SOCKS: When my
socks get holes in them, a great
second use is to just slip my
hand into one and wipe my TV
screens and computer screen to
get the dust off. They're also
great for small cleanup on mir-
rors and windows. Rosalind,
Kentucky
FRUIT FLIES: I poured a lit-
tle balsamic vinegar into a juice
glass, squirted a drop of soap
into it, and left it on the counter
for a few days. Fruit flies are at-
tracted to the balsamic, and the
soap breaks the surface ten-
sion, so once they are in, they
cannot get back out I must have
gotten 75 that way! Missy,
Ohio
CHICKEN SOUP: When I
make chicken wings, I cut off
the tips, since there is no real
meat on them, and they take up
space when I bake them in the
oven. I package them for the
freezer in quart bags and use

to carry a special message in the
language of flowers.
The club will meet Thursday,

starts at 9 a.m. with the business

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


The cost of convenience can add up quickly


Frugal folks cook from
scratch. But is it
cheaper? There's no
one-size-fits-all answer to this
question. If you're not a savvy
shopper, have time constraints
or don't have health restric-
tions, then there's increased
value placed on ready-made
and convenience foods. For ex-
ample, boxed pasta and sauce

noodles and sauce. But many
people do have time to even go
as far as grinding their own
grain into flour or growing a
garden and canning their
homegrown tomatoes. So mak-
ing spaghetti from scratch
makes perfect sense because
they have these items close at
hand.
What are your deciding fac-
tors ijn regards to using ready-
made foods or cooking from
scratch?
Here are a few points to con-
sider.
SCALE: .Ingredients for
homemade meals and snacks
are often going to be the most
cost-effective way of cooking
when you have more. people to
feed. A single person might
argue that volume is not on
their side. They might not go
through a bulk bag of flour for
months or be able to consume a
bag of apples before they go
bad. It can make sense for sin-
gles to sometimes buy ready-to-

eat foods that they don't eat
often or when they want
greater variety, too. Ingredients
could cost more when you're
cooking at home, and some food
could go to waste. Thanksgiving
dinner, chef salads and coffee
come to mind. But singles can
look into "share shopping" with


friends and family to split
larger quantities of food to get
the best price. And creative
planning can certainly help. A
larger family buying ingredi-
ents in bulk will find it cheaper
than buying in small quantities,
premade or dining out. Home-
made meals will often yield

enough servings for leftovers,
and often, there's extra ingre-
dients to make additional
meals, too.
PREFERENCE: Typically,
homemade meals are far supe-
rior in taste and nutrition. You
have control over what goes
into your food. Many frugal


cooks won't eat store bread or
takeout pizza because they sim-
ply prefer their own recipes.
Some people argue that ingre-
dients to make these items are
expensive, but supplies such as
yeast can be bought in a bulk
