Brad Thorpe has a game plan:




, e have to think like the customer."


MIKE WRIGHT

Chronicle


B rad Thorpe spent the
weekend engrossed in
a good book.
Oliver Twist? Moby
Dick? Harry Potter?
Not even close.
Try this instead: "Raving Fans: A
Revolutionary Approach to Cus-
tomer Service" by Ken Blanchard
and Sheldon Bowles.
"You have to know what you want
and then find a way to achieve it,"
Thorpe, Citrus County's new admin-
istrator; says in summing up the book.
A year ago, Thorpe knew what he
wanted, but he couldn't find a way to
achieve it. He wanted the county ad-
ministrator job. As a senior staffer
and former commissioner. Thorpe
thought he was the front-runner as
the interim administrator.
S Then Anthony Schembri came
along, wooed four of the five com-
missioners with his unique style, and,
Thorpe ended up holding the clip-
board on the sidelines while Schem-
bri went into the starting lineup.
He admits it was difficult to accept.
"The board wanted somebody
from the outside. at the time,", he
says. "I took it hard."
As Schembri's leadership im-
ploded over -a series of missteps,
Thorpe watched and waited.
"I felt like I was the backup quar-
terback sitting on the bench,".he
says. "I knew all the plays and, if
called: upon,.I could perform."
It's Thorpe's job now, and his goal
is to direct a team of employees to-
ward executing a game plan set by
the county commission.
Thorpe's background isn't in pub-
lic administration or finance, like
many predecessors. Along with
eight years on the county commis-
sion, Thorpe spent seven years as
county Community Services Depart-
ment director, where he oversaw the
operations of parks, libraries, sen-
ior services and tourism.
Thorpe is big on customer service
and he wants county workers to feel
the same way.
"We need to think like the customer,"
he says.
He also hopes to change the direc-
tion of a county government that has
stepped on more than a few land
mines in recent years.
"It's been very volatile," Thorpe
says. "I want to calm things down."


-~ ~ -~ 1


Brad Thorpe has taken the reins as county administrator and says customer service Is a top priority.


Meet the man Abriefbio


PAST "
57 years old; lives in Hernando; married to Donna for 20 years,
four children, eight grandchildren; county commissioner 1992-
2000; community services director 2002-'09; interim county
administrator for one month in 2008.

H IS * i ^ vi. ,. ..


The late Ken "Mr. Wizard" Saunders, a for-
mer assistant county administrator. Thorpe
has a laminated greeting card from Saun-
ders in his office that includes Saunders'
explicit instructions to waitresses on how to
make the perfect martini. "I looked up to
him. I'll never forget him," Thorpe says.


Thorpe likes
boating and
kayaking, as
well as riding
his bike on the
Withlacoochee
State Trail.
i


GETTING ..
Thorpe fooled many
during his eight years on
the county commission
into thinking he'had a
full crop up top. Shortly
after his return to
county government in
2002, Thorpe arrived to
work one day bald with
the revelation that he
had worn a hairpiece all
those years. "This .
wouldn't even have been
an issue if I had a pri-
vate life," he jokes.


- ''DECOR
Behind Thorpe's
desk hangs a
framed, auto-
graphed photo of
state Sen. Mike
Fasano holding the
Peggy Noonan
book, "When Char-
acter was King,"
about the late for-
mer President
Ronald Reagan.
Thorpe says
Fasano was
participating in
a countywide
reading program. '
Thorpe is fond of
Fasano: "He's a
hoot."


SAY
Commissioner Gary
Bartell: "The experience
he gained on the county
commission gives him a
better insight how county
government works and
what needs to be done."
Cathy Pearson, com-
munity support services
director who has
worked six years for
Thorpe: "He is ex-
tremely pro-customer
service. We can mess
up paperwork. That
doesn't make him so
mad as messing up
customer service. We
can fix paperwork."


THMt ONE

20 years
ago, on his
parents'
41st wedding
anniversary,
Thorpe's
father died
of a heart
attack. .
"He died in
my arms.
He was only
65."

New cardiac group


throbs with enthusiasm


CHRIS VAN ORMER

Chronicle

Until a heart is broken, literally, no one
knows how it feels.
"I felt lost," said Lee Meneses, assistant
regional director of the Southern Region
of The Mended Hearts Inc., a group for
heart patients, their families and care-
givers. "When you have something wrong
and you're the only one with the heart
problem, it's a secret You can't talk to any-
one you know. Mended Hearts becomes
your family."
Meneses and Marvin Keyser, regional
director, traveled from their homes in Or-
lando and Weston to be speakers Friday at
the inaugural meeting at Citrus Memorial
Health System for a county chapter of The
Mended Hearts.
Keyser said he had been with the group
for 13 years because he had two surgeries
in one day after he had four heart attacks.
Meneses said he had an enlarged heart
and ended up with a defibrillator.
Although The Mended Hearts is de-
scribed as a support group, "It's more like
Triple A than AA," Meneses said. "Recov-
ery is not a destination, but a journey. Give
us a call when something happens and
we'll pick you up."
More than 40 people attended to show
interest in starting the group. They heard
that The Mended Hearts started in 1951 in

for patients and their hearts, and the
packs are folders full of advice and infor-
mation for new cardiac patients. Member-
ship dues at $17 a year help fund these
materials.
Bringing the heart patient support
group to Citrus County was the idea of
Sharon Stewart Dunn, cardiovascular op-
erating room manager at Citrus Memorial
Heart Center.
Stewart Dunn said she had worked at
another hospital that had a support group
before she went to work for CMHS.
"When I started the program here, I
knew there was a missing link," she said.
"There was a need for more support"
When she attended a conference at The
Villages, she met a representative from
The Mended Hearts.
"It was the opportune time to bring it to-
gether," Stewart Dunn said. "The sur-
geons, Dr. (Peter) Kim and Dr. (Srinivas)
Attanti, are behind us in this, and that's
crucial to make it successful."

TAYLOR PROVOST

Seasoned county tax col-
lector Janice Warren will
take on a new role in Sep-
tember, as the newly elected
president of the Florida Tax
Collector Association.
"It's very hum-
bling," said Warren.
"It's a challenging ..,
time to assume this
leadership role, but I
know this is a grow- W
ing experience. It's
quite an honor and I
lookforward to it"
Warren, who has Ja
served as tax collec- Jan
tor in the county for CW
more than eight Citrus
years, was nomi- now p
nated by a colleague of stat
and elected by her
peers.


Being president puts War-
ren in a leadership role over
66 other tax collectors in the
state and allows her to have
direct access to state agen-
cies and legislators. She said
she looks forward to the op-
portunity to influence gov-
ernment policy and give
feedback, while also contin-
uing her regular work as
county tax collector.
Warren plans to focus on
using, inter-local agreements
that would allow the tax col-

other agencies in the county.
"We all do similar work
and are faced with similar
challenges with budget cuts
and legislative changes. Our

our budgets have decreased
and the need to collaborate
is more important
than ever," Warren

Warren is the third consti-
tutional officer in the county

Unemployed? Don't despair WNd Pnd wd o
. ... .... --- A. a


KERI LYNN MCHALE
Chronicle

There's financial help
available for thousands of
Citrus County residents who
remain unemployed. On
June 2, Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation offi-
cials announced eligible
Floridians would be able to
receive additional, tempo-
rary unemployment com-
pensation, made available
by the American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act of
2009.
In April, the Florida Leg-
islature passed a bill, au-
thorizing the Florida
Agency for Workforce Inno-
vation to pay extended un-
employment compensation
benefits to those who have
exhausted all other atate
and federal unemployment
benefits. These extended
benefits are different than
the federal emergency un-
employment compensation
benefits.
Q&A: Extended Benefits
Who is eligible?
Those who are totally or
partially unemployed. Par-
tially unemployed people
are those who hold jobs that
pay less than federal mini-
mum wage and/or less than
the extended benefit weekly
unemployment payments. -
Those who exhausted,


or will exhaust all regular
and emergency unemploy-
ment compensation benefits
between the weeks of Feb.
22 and Dec. 27.
Those who exhausted
all of their benefits prior to
Feb. 22, but whose benefit
years have ended or will
end after the week of Feb.
22.
Those who are not eligi-
ble for unemployment com-
pensation benefits in any
other state as well as Puerto
Rico, the Virgin Islands, the
District of Columbia and
Canada.
Those who are actively
seeking work for each ex-
tended benefit claim week
and are able to provide the
required work search
records.
Those who do not re-
fuse offers for suitable work,
which is any work that pays
at least- federal minimum
wage of $7.25 and/or more
than extended benefit
weekly unemployment pay-
ments.
How do I apply?
To file an initial claim ap-
plication, call (800) 204-2418
or log onto www.florida-

Patients lose patience with insurance


CHRIS VAN ORMER
cvanormer
@chronicleonline.com
Chronicle

Health insurance com-
plications may aggravate
your better nature.
As new residents move to
Citrus County, they are
finding that one hospital
can't accept some health
insurance carriers, even
though the patient knows
the insurers to be a major
brand that has given them
no problem at other hospi-
tals.
Charlotte Friel of Her-
nando wrote to the Chroni-
cle expressing a situation
echoed by other residents
about health insurance
being refused: "This has
caused us a great deal of
frustration and anxiety and
we are at a loss to under-
stand why a county hospi-
tal, supported, by our tax
dollars, refuses to recog-
nize a major health insur-
ance institution, thereby
rejecting business it could
easily have, while, at the
same time, it is frequently
reported in the news as
needing to increase its pa-
tient base."
Citrus Memorial Health
System's issues with insur-
ance are perplexing to res-
idents, as is its policy of
collecting the co-payment
as soon as possible.
Valerie Hall of Her-
nando, a 16-year county
resident, told the Chronicle
that she was not much im-
pressed with Citrus Memo-
rial's new financial
collection policy.
Hall's husband has had a
chronic condition for two
years, and during Memo-
rial Day weekend, the con-
dition turned life
threatening.
-"We must have had about
20 accounts with Citrus Me-
morial for the past two
years that have been
',opened and closed," Hall
said.
"On Monday, my husband
was unconscious," she said,
describing the medical cri-
sis. "The doctors said to'
keep fighting. I thought we
might lose him. The staff,
nurses and aids were pro-
fessional, caring and sym-
pathetic. I couldn't ask for
,a better crew."
Her husband's condi-
tioned was stabilized.,
"Fortunately, he woke up
the next day," Hall said.
"Then a woman comes into
the room, 'sits down and
says she's there to verify
the records. I agree she's
correct about the name, ad-
dress, insurance and co-
pay amount of $70q. Then
she says, 'It is due now."'


Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center accepts the following insurance payers:
AARP Medicare Complete, AvMed, Beech Street PPO network, Blue Cross-various
products, BCBS Blue Medicare HMO, BCBS Blue Medicare PPO, CCN PPO, Network,
Cigna PPO Network, Evercare-UHC, Evolutions, First Health, Florida Div of Forestry,
Florida Workers Compensation, Galaxy P.PO Health Network, Great West Healthcare,
Healthease, Humana, Humana Medicare, Hygeia PPO Network, Multiplan PPO Net-
work, Oxford Medicare-UHC, PHCS PPO Network, Rockport PPO Network, Secure
Horizon Medicare-UHC, Southcare PPO Network, Three Rivers Provider PPO Network,
United Healthcare, Wellcare and Wellcare Medicare-HMO.
In addition, Seven Rivers will work with individual patients or representatives of in-
surance payers that may not be on the list.


Hall said she could not
believe she was hearing
correctly.
"I could feel myself be-
coming outraged," Hall
said. "I handed over my
debit card and said, 'You
charge it to this. This inter-
view is over.' All the caring,
sympathy and professional-
ism I was feeling toward
the hospital staff was van-
quished."
The concern for the co-
pay seemed to. supersede
the concern for the patient,
Hall said.
"Other people I've spo-.
ken to confirm this experi-
ence," Hall said. "Hospitals
will tell you, 'We need your
co-pay right now."'
Hall said she talked to
the patients' advocate and
the director of business
services. She said she was
told that the request for the
co-payment was standard
procedure at a public hos-
pital.
"There's got to be a bet-
ter way to ask for payment,
not spring it when the pa-
tient is vulnerable. I found
it grotesque and distaste-
ful. They should at least
leave a pamphlet in the
room explaining the policy,
so it is not like an ambush,"
Hall said.
Ryan Beatty, chief execu-
tive officer of CMHS, told
the Chronicle that he has
received quite a few com-
plaints himself and that the
hospital administration
has been working to cor-
rect the frustrations.
"For a long time in Citrus
County, there was no other
insurers but Blue Cross,
Medicaid and Medicare,
,until recently," Beatty said.
SAs the county has grown
and many new residents
move in, .they bring with
them many different insur-
ance carriers, Beatty said.
"As a practical matter,
the hospital took a conser-
vative approach to all these
insurers,", Beatty said.
"We've had to negotiate
pretty hard .with them to
make a return."
Some insurers have
wanted to pay less than
cost, and when other insur-
ers have seen that, they
have tried that tactic as
well, Beatty said.


"Over the past year, we
have been trying to negoti-
ate with these insurers,"
Beatty said. "We are in
talks with five large-compa-
nies right now. We hope to
get several new contracts
by the end of the fiscal
year."
He said if patients could
tell their insurance plan to
pay the hospital's costs, the
hospital would take it.
No one would be denied
medical care, he said.
"We certainly make sure
they get care here or some-
where else," Beatty said.
The hospital is trying to
look ahead to the many dif-
ferent insurance carriers it
will need to deal with in
the future.
"As we move to Sugarmill
Woods, we are going to be
presented with a new
plethora of insurance
plans," Beatty said. "We are
trying to get ahead of that
by mailing a questionnaire
to residents asking about
their insurance so we can
work on-relationships with
those insurers."
The hospital also is tight-
ening up its business
processes, which means
asking for the co-payment.
Beatty said that the hospi-
tal administrators have
been evaluating its billing
and collecting processes.
"Now we are getting pa-
tients the kind of help they




.


need and the hospital the
reimbursement we need,"
Beatty said.
He said the Internal Rev-
enue Service had changed
criteria for charity care.
"We have to have a tight
paper trail, and there is
pressure on a public hospi-
tal to provide charity care,"
he said.
Beatty gave an example
of the way the tight paper
trail helps fund the hospi-
tal. During the past three
months, the hospital has
claimed $1 million a month
as charity care compared
to $6.7 million for the
whole year of 2008.
"We are not doing more
charity care," Beatty said.
"We have just classified it
better, rather than as bad
debt. We are being more
business-like in our opera-
tions."
The hospital will open a
separate office in Grace
Street this summer for
Medicaid applications to
be filed. It will be dedi-
cated only to Medicaid pay-
ments, and the patient will
be served by a staff mem-
ber who will get an answer
back for approval sooner
than at present.
"It's another way of mak-
ing things-better for the pa-
tient and us," Beatty said.
"They will get a service
they otherwise wouldn't
get."


. The Chronicle asked
Vicki Norris, who directs
business services at Seven
Rivers Regional Medical
Center, what happens
when a patient has cover-
age with a different
provider?
"We call the insurance
company and do a single-
case negotiation," Norris
said. "I haven't found one
we haven't been able to
work out."
Beatty said Citrus Memo-
rial also does single-case
negotiations, but expressed
concern about a patient
having to pay out-of-
network expenses.
Seven Rivers also has a
system in place for patients
who have no insurance.
"We have two workers on
site to help with obtaining
Medicaid eligibility, and
there is a caseworker in
ER who helps with Medi-
caid," Norris said. "If the
patient is not eligible for
Medicaid, we work out a
payment arrangement."
As for how soon Seven
Rivers would expect to re-
ceive the co-payment, Nor-
ris said, "If it is scheduled
surgery, we try to find out
the co-payment amount in
advance as a service to the
patient, so it will not come
as a surprise in the future.
"We don't insist that pa-
tients pay at the hospital.
It is an industry standard
to ask for the co-payment
while the patient is in the'
hospital. It gives the pa-
tient the opportunity to
pay as soon as possible.
Sometimes, we don't know
what the co-payment is
until after the insurance
company has processed
the account. The patient
can make a deposit and
then see what the balance
is after the insurance
pays."

Today in
HISTORY==

Today is Sunday, June 14,
the 165th day of 2009. There
are 200 days left in the year.
Today is Flag Day.
Today's Highlight:
On June 14,1777, the Con-
tinental Congress in Philadel-
phia adopted the Stars and
Stripes as the national flag.
On this date:
In 1775, the Continental
Army, forerunner of the U.S.-',
Army, was created.
In 1801, formerAmerican
Revolutionary War general
and notorious turncoat Bene-
dict Arnold died in London.
In 1846, a group of U.S.
settlers in Sonoma proclaimed
the Republic of California.
In 1919, John Alcock and
Arthur Whitten Brown em-
barked on the first nonstop
flight across the Atlantic
Ocean.
In 1940, German troops
entered Paris during World
War II; the same day, the
Nazis opened the Auschwitz
concentration camp in Ger-
man-occupied Poland.
In 1943, the Supreme
Court, in West Virginia State
Board of Education v. Bar-
nette, ruled that children in
public schools could not be
forced to salute the U.S. flag.
In 1954, the words "under
God" were added to the
Pledge of Allegiance.
In 1967, the space probe
Mariner 5 was launched from
Cape Kennedy, Fla., on a
flight that took it past Venus.
In 1985, the 17-day hijack,
ordeal of TWA Flight 847
began as a pair of Lebanese
Shiite Muslim extremists
seized the jetliner shortly after
takeoff from Athens, Greece.
Ten years ago: About
15,000 NATO peacekeepers'
spread out across Kosovo,
including a convoy of about
1,200 U.S. Marines.
Five years ago: The
Supreme Court allowed
schoolchildren to keep affirm-
ing loyalty to one nation "under
God," but dodged the underly-
ing question of whether the
Pledge of Allegiance was an
unconstitutional blending of
church'and state.
One year ago: Iran rejected
a six-nation offer of incentives to
stop enriching uranium, prompt-
ing President George W. Bush
and French President Nicolas
Sarkozy to jointly warn Tehran
anew during a news confer-
ence in Paris against proceed-
ing toward a nuclear bomb.
Today's Birthdays: Real
estate mogul and TV person-
ality Donald Trump is 63. Ac-
tress Yasmine Bleeth is 41.
Tennis player Steffi Graf is 40.
Thought for Today:
'There is the National flag.


He must be cold, indeed,
who can look upon its folds
rippling in the breeze without
pride of country. If in a foreign
land, the flag is companion-
ship, and country itself, with
all its endearments." -
Charles Sumner, American
author (1811-1874).

COMMENTARY
CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE -


Citrus Memorial strong, on the right track


SANDRA CHADWICK
Special to the Chronicle
In response to inaccuracies
contained in Commentary
section columns published
on June 7, regarding Citrus Me-
morial Health System, correc-
tions to the record are required.
As a longtime health care pro-
fessional, CPA, and board mem-
ber of Citrus Memorial Health
Foundation, I'm well acquainted
with the financial status of Citrus
Memorial and take issue with the
conclusions that the hospital is
losing "more" money each year.
This is simply not.true.
'Citrus Memorial Health System
(CMHS) operates in a unique en-
vironment, subject to ever-grow-
ing need and ever-shrinking
resources. If we are to fulfill our
.mission to improve the health
and quality of life for the people
we serve by providing access to
comprehensive health and well-
ness care we need help from
the community in the form of
taxes from time to time.
'Unlike the for-profit hospitals
profiled alongside Citrus Memo-
rial in last week's articles, CMHS
does not seek to generate "profit"
for shareholders: Instead, we seek
Stogenerate investments into com-
munity care, and provide health
,care and wellness opportunities
to all the citizens of Citrus County,
not just those with an insurance
or credit card in their wallet
Even while struggling to main-
tain uninterrupted delivery 6f
care, we are taking important
steps to reduce costs. We have
fr ozen any new participation in
our defined benefit pension plan,
reducing fees from $6 million to $2
million annually, and are continu-
ing to reduce wherever possible.
I take specific issue with Dr.
William Dixon and Dr. Paresh
Desai's claim that hospital ad-
ministration explains to the board
that things are tough all over the
country, that they are doing the
best they can and that they are
making improvements.
Neither Dixon nor Desai have
,ever been to' a' hospital board
meeting. As someone who has at-
tended many, here's the situation:
as an entity that operates in the
Sunshine Law, our books and
records are open to all. In addi-
tion to comprehensive reporting
to the state of Florida and our
bondholders, we post our finan-
cial records on our Web site and
distribute our annual audit to a
wide variety of entities and indi-.
viduals. Throughout the hospital,
*our monthly financial statements
are on staff and public-access bul-
letin boards. We're providing real-
time, information, and are
committed to the highest levels of
transparency.
Additional confusion was intro-
duced regarding the Board of
Trustees' role in levying the taxes
that support Citrus Memorial. As
stated in one of last week's
columns, "The five hospital
trustees, appointed by the gover-
nor, have no say whatsoever as re-
gards those taxes."
'This is wrong. The five hospital
trustees are exclusively the ones
who make the final decision on
the tax rate. A number of hospi-
tals have moved to this model,
and for good reason: rather than
basing tax decisions on recbm-
mendations from practitioners or

Public or private, quality of care is what matters


T am enjoying a new phase of
* my retirement, reconnecting
with family and friends
'around the world. No
matter how far I travel,
my heart remains in
Citrus County as I -
think of friends, col- !
leagues, and patients
and families I have
been privileged to care
for.
) ,Recently I have
n'ted some contro- Dr. Ed
versy about Citrus Me- GU
inorial Health.System
that concerns me. The COL
* issue seems to be more
about management of money than
,quality of care, as niost of the arti-
cles critical of CMHS acknowl-
edge that it provides quality care.
The general agreement about this
fact is good news.
The other good news is that
money can be counted. While
'there are many complexities in
health care today that make
,.health care management difficult,
accounting for services and
money spent for those services is


dI
E
_


possible. When any accounting
accuracy is questioned, an audit
is the way to clarify issues, and
CMHS is no exception.
A clean transparent
audit should resolve
questions, provided
there .is no political
agenda to muddy the
water.
A third issue, aside
from funding and qual-
ity of care provided, is
Dodge whether a tax-sup-
"ST ported facility should
compete with private
JMN providers for health
care dollars. CMHS is
public in that it receives a small
slice of its revenue from taxes. In
reality, most of its income must
come by attracting health care
dollars through good quality care,
just like other providers.
Philosophically, the old ques-
tion of public vs. private health
care is muted today. I have expe-
rience on all sides of this issue,
having served in the U.S. Public
Health Service from 1964-66,
been director of the Citrus-Levy

County Health Department from
1971-74, and been in private fam-
ily practice for many years after
that. In the latter years of my
practice, it was part of the Citrus
Memorial Health System, so I've
experienced that also.
In between other stints, I stud-
ied public health at Johns Hopkins
University and taught at the Pub-
lic Health College in Gondar,
Ethiopia. What I can say from all
these experiences is that regard-
less of the framework, the secret of
patient care lies in caring for the
patient Certainly the framework
is important, but the focus must al-
ways be on giving good care.
Fifty years ago, when I first
began in medicine, the private


sector was horrified by the idea of
health departments providing
primary health care. Today, it
would be aghast if health depart-
ments turned all such care over to
the private sector. Citrus County
needs all its providers of health
care. Both the private sector and
the public sector are important,
and a hybrid institution like Cit-
rus Memorial is a vital part of the
mix.
I hope Citrus County can swing
its support behind a sound, solid
Citrus Memorial Health System.

It's good to
know where

you want to go
O ne of the best vaca-
tions we ever took
was when we
didn't have a plan.
It was a summer trip
where we pointed the car
toward North Florida and
just started driving. We
stopped when we wanted
to and stayed until we got
restless.
Not having a plan or a
schedule is a great treat
when you spend your life
over-planned and over-
scheduled.
The downside of a vaca-
tion without a plan is that
you might not always have
your first choice on a hotel
room or restaurant
While the freedom of
not having a plan might be
attractive on a vacation,
it's not really a great way
to run a government. In
Citrus County, there has
been a struggle to con-
vince members of the
county commission that
creating a plan that looks
to the future is something
thatInakes sense.
When Commissioner
John Thrumston tried ear-
lier this year to get his fel-
low board members to
create a vision and strategic
plan, the effort stumbled.

LOGIC LACKING


Show compassion


and open showers


for the homeless


he .opportunity to help
another should not be
taken lightly. The oppor-
tunity to help those most in
need connects us to the deepest
values taught by the greatest
leaders the world has known.
It is easy to come up with ar-
guments why we should not
lend a helping hand to those
who need it most. It's easy to
turn a deaf ear to those who
cannot speak for themselves.
It's easy to rationalize why we
should not assist those we don't
know and therefore fear.
The plight of the homeless is
nothing new; they're not going
away anytime soon. It's easy to
fear them. It's
easy to ignore THE I
them.
Fortunately, there Showi
are some folks in the hor
our community
who want to make OUR OF
life a little easier
-for the homeless. Why hln
We can't solve the it's easy
problem of home-
lessness overnight any more
than we can solve poverty,
hunger or disease. The roots of
homelessness are as varied as
the victims. Their stories can
bring tears to the compassionate.
It's easy to blame them, or be
suspicious of how they ended
* up with no shelter. Some have
made bad decisions and some
are victims of circumstance.
. Thousands of compassionate
Citrus County residents signed
petitions supporting a local ef-
fort toprovide showers for 15
to 20 homeless people every
other Sunday at the Historic
Hernando School. The facility
h.. indoor, heated showers;
and programs operating in the
old school .are typically closed
on Sunday.
Officials with the Family Re-
source Center, which is based
there, believe that showers for
those they assist might help
them get jobs. Their plan is not
to .provide showers for all the
county's homeless, or create a
problem for others, but to pro-
vide a basic and needed serv-
ice for those seeking work.
Presently, Hernando Beach
Park a short distance from
the old school-- is where some
of the homeless in the area
shower. There is no hot water,
they can't really disrobe and
people of all ages frequent the
park for recreational purposes.
The Hernando Heritage
Council, which controls the
county-owned Historic Her-


S
e-
m

P
d
y


nando-School, blocked the ef-
fort to open up the facility's
showers during a recent board
meeting without discussion.
Later comments by the coun-
cil's chairwoman cited various
reasons for the decision. Of
main concern was the safety of
children who might use the
property on Sunday.
It is ironic that one of the
county's leading providers of
services for children, Ginger
West of the Family Resource
Center, must defend how her
agency might endanger chil-
dren when nothing could be
further from the truth. The
work of Ginger West has posi-
tively touched the
|SUE: lives of more chil-
dren than just
rs for about anyone in
neless. the county. Her
selfless devotion
INION: to making the
lives of children
er when and. those in need
to help? better is an inspi-
ration for all.


Ginger West informed the
Heritage Council that cur-
rently there' are no children's
activities at the property on
Sunday and if any were
planned, the showers could be
done at a different time when
children are not present. Her-
itage Council officials coun-
tered that, regardless, showers
for homeless people is not part
of their vision for the property.
The reality is that:
The showers are there.
Children typically are not
there on Sundays.
Supervision would be pro-
vided.
There is a handful of
homeless people in the area
who, despite their circum-
stances, would welcome the
opportunity to bathe.
Cleanliness may help some
homeless in job interviews and
possibly ultimately get
them out of their predicament.
Water is a symbol of cleans-
ing. It reflects our values. It can
sustain us and provide comfort.
It can produce a brighter fu-
ture by changing attitudes.
It may be ironic that those
who might benefit the most
from allowing showers at the
Family Resource Center are
,those who oppose it.
By serving those who are in
great need, we not only enrich
their lives we enrich our
own. What better legacy, what
better heritage to leave our
children than to show we care.

Among cherished photo-

closeup of my son and his for-

the teacher at the center of re-
cent disciplinary action by the
Citrus County School Board. My
son is severely autistic with be-

child involved in the Crest
School incident. In the photo,
my son is smiling, while Mrs.
Ivanyi indulgently cradles his
shoulder with her hand -

for that cast when he broke her

"routine" for staff to be kicked,
punched, bitten, sustain broken
bones, clean up bodily fluids
and excrement and still turn up
for work next day with a big
smile!
Their defense comes in the
form of motivated parents who
consistently show up at the

CnRus CouNTY (FL) CITRONICLE COMMENTARY .
Y, ADNUS JUNE 14, 2009




Bethy-Poo was given the shirt off my back


Recently, my good
brother William, his
wife, my wife and I
had gone to dinner together
and were returning home.
We were traveling north on
U.S. 301, just outside of
Dade City. I glanced out the
window and saw a dinosaur
-- not a T-Rex, but some-
thing close: a drive-in movie
theater I'm sure there must
be others, but this is the only
one I know of which is still
in operation.
Seeing the Joy-Lan sitting
there with a film flickering
on the screen brought back
an array of memories: child-
hood times when William
and I went with our parents;
dating days; and finally an


incident which will be re-
told with zest in this column
- a time when Cheryl and I
took our firstborn, Beth, to
the drive-in with us.
As teenagers, the drive-in
was a very important part of
our lives. It was the place
we went to show off our cars
and to see what others were
driving. No one really cared
about the movie, it was
more about who we saw and
with whom we saw them
than it was what we saw on
the screen. And, of course,
there was always an ongoing
indication of how such an
establishment gained its
nickname: the passion pit.
After Cheryl and I were
married, we still went to the


drive-in, but surprise we the diaper bag with what we
actually went to see the thought were all of the es-
movies! Not only were the sentials and set out for an
tickets less ex- evening ofen'ter-
pensive than tainment.

we could take poet Robert

On one such occasion, we it's said, our best-laid plans
packed our snacks, filled went kaput!


The movie was longer
than we'd expected, and our"
supply of diapers didn't last
With a half-hour or so re-
maining, the odorous indi-
cation was time had come
once more to change the
baby's diaper. Being the
new, conscientious parents
we were as well as both
having somewhat sensitive
olfactory perception we
couldn't allow our baby to
languish in a soiled state.
With no more clean dia-
pers and heading into the
climactic finish of the pic-
ture show, what were we to
do?!
Without taking my eyes
from the screen, I removed
my undershirt and handed


it to Cheryl. As quick as one
could say, "Kid, here's the
shirt off of my back," my
sweetheart cleaned that
which needed cleaning,
folded my T-shirt and
pinned it in place.
So, there you have it
Many parents have
claimed, "I'd give my child
the shirt off my back!"
I've not only said it, I've
done it but truth be told, I
had a self-serving motive: to
see the end of a movie and
to dp so without holding my
nose.

Notes from


the Bundestag
he following articles were taken from notes
that I made during a recent trip to Ger-
many as part of the U.S. Congressional Del-
egation to the 26th Annual Congress-Bundestag
Seminar. Any error in what is reported is totally
my fault. Sometimes the inability to read my notes
coupled with the translations can cause problems.
The meetings took place in Berlin and
Cologne. The 27th Annual Congress-Bundestag
Seminar will take place in St. Louis.
The U.S. delegation had nine members, includ-
ing eight sitting members chaired by U.S. Rep.
Rob Bishop, R-Utah, and
co-chaired by U.S. Rep..
SRuss Carnahan, D-Mo.
The German delegation
had nine sitting members
St plus three former mem-
"bers, and their delegation
was chaired by MdB
Hans-Ulrich Klose (SPD).
-.\ These parliamentary
Lou Frey exchanges are extremely
OTHER important, especially as
individual friendships are
developed and difficult is-
sues can be discussed and
resolved, as we saw several years ago when
Chancellor Schroeder and the Bush Adminis-
tration took turns in issuing harsh statements
about the other's activities.
There are several things that I feel very strongly
about The first is that Germany is our strongest
ally in Europe. In many places in Germany, there
is a remembrance of what America did after the
war. Over and over again I was told that their re-
.bnth woutn tiditha\'e happened without our help.
Fhe problem- inii Germany are a great deal like
the problems we have. Tip O'Neill said, "All pol-
itics is local." The discussion in Germany over
the General Motors crisis'revolved around jobs;
which party would get more credit for saving
more jobs. Everything go in Germany now
is colored by the general election coming up on
Sept. 25. Neither party wants to do anything that
could open it up to criticism and defeat.
The major problems on the German list, such
as-the financial system, the economy, unemploy-
ment, the environment, Guantanamo Bay, Iran,
Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan are the same
that we face. Our new administration goes in
with a great deal of goodwill from the German
people, and the German government.
It is an interesting time to be in Germany. They
are, in the near future, going to celebrate the 60th
anniversary of the "new birth" of their country.
They will, later in the year, celebrate the 20th an-
niversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Elections
for the European Union Parliament will take
place in the summer and the German general elec-
tion taking place in September has no clear leader
at this time. During the week we were there the
No. 1 question was: What's going to happen to GM?
In Germany there are approximately 25,000 jobs
in the auto industry related to GM and its sub-
sidiaries. Because these jobs at stake are in four
German states, it is the first time that the members
of the German Grand Coalition have not been able
to agree on a major issue. It is clear that neither
major party, the Christian Democratic Union
(CDU) or the Social Democratic Party (SPD) wants
to be the one responsible for the loss ofjobs. Which
party does the best job in handling this problem
will probably be the party that wins in September
The U.S. does not have an ambassador, as the
previous ambassador resigned a few months ago
and no new ambassador has been appointed.
The Charge d'Affaires, John Koenig, is the act-
ing U.S. ambassador and is doing an outstand-
ing job. It is hard for the Germans to understand
why the United States has not appointed a new
ambassador. The acting U.S. ambassador was in
the position of being a very interested spectator
to the negotiations that were going on regarding
GM, Opel, Magna, etc., but not a player.
Several other issues were discussed. Climate
change is still a very big issue, as the goal is a 20
percent reduction in emissions from the 1990
standards, which the U.S. can't meet
The Germans have announced that they want
to do away with nuclear energy by 2020, which is
incredibly ambitious and probably unrealistic.
The U.S. is trying to get more German troops in
Afghanistan, but it is clear no decision will be made
until after the September elections. There are ap-
proximately 4 million Turks in Germany and a big
issue is what position Germany should take on
Turkey's admission to the European Union (EU).
There was a great deal of excitement about Pres-
ident Obama's trip to Germany, which included a
speech at a concentration camp historic site. Dur-
ing the time we were there, the White House, de-
spite German pressure, was avoidinggoingto Berlin
or speaking in front of what is left of the Berlin Wall.

Not buying integrity
This is in reference to Mr.
Thorpe, Brad Thorpe, the new
county administrator. (He's)
supposed to be making
$123,000 a year. Golly, that's
a whole lot of money. It's
amazing how people just get
fat on the hog...What could a
man possibly be doing to
earn that kind of salary (of)
$123,000 a year? The two for-
mer administrators got the
boot, just about. Obviously it
shows that this money's not
buying integrity. It's just not
paying off to pay these peo-
ple this kind of money. Gov-
ernment, .my God, is so
over-expanded. These officials
are getting paid way too
much money. I don't know
when the people are going to
protest about all this money ,
that they're getting. It's just
disgusting.
Hold onto your hats
The county property ap-
praisers were assumed to be
correct in assessing and ap-
praising people's-property.
Well, guess what? A rude
awakening. Gov. Crist, Charlie
Crist, said: "No, no, you're
not going to be the ones that
are going to say what the
property's worth. You're not
the only authority. You are not
the professional people that
are going to tell what the
market value is and what the
people have to pay taxes on."
It's not going to be that way
no more. They're not going to
be presumed to be correct,
period, and it's going to be a
lot easier to challenge from
here on in. So hold on to your
hats there, property apprais-
ers. Woo, woo, woo,
Worth it
For those of you who think
Brad Thorpe is overpaid: Are
you kidding? Check the
salaries of the elected offi-
.cials in this.county. Don't you
think Brad Thorpe has more
responsibility than them?
Don't you think Brad Thorpe
should make more than
them? What are you going to
get for half that price? Not
much. Have a good day.
Flawed system
For the person with the
lengthy divorce process: I
completely agree with the
court system here. I never
would have believed it was so
flawed until I watched people
close to me go through the
process. The ones who fol-
lowed the rules get dumped


on while the ones violating the
rules sail on through the sys-
tem.. .Stateattorney drops,,.
cases for insufficient evidence
without even talking to those
involved. I have no idea what
good a judge's signed order is.
Nothing happens to those who
violate, ever. And the lawyers?
Don't get me started. I haven't
found a single one who gave
me what I paid for...It's very
frustrating. I don't know what
we're going to do.
Come on, ladies
We need more ladies in po-
litical offices. Come on, ladies.
Let's get in there and get into
office. Send a male politician
into the mall with $1.00 to buy
a shirt, socks and a
tie and he'll. come O
back and tell you he
needs another $10.
Send a lady in a mall
for shirt, socks and
tie, she'll comeback
with a better grade
of clothing with col-
ors matching and
give you back $20. CAI
No, I'm not a female, 563-(
but I respect and
honor.them. God
bless everyone. Come on,
ladies, run for office.
Dean and Schultz
In this morning's editorial re-
garding Charlie Crist, our gov-
ernor, signing the gutting of
the growth management act, I
think you failed to mention one
other thing in there: We totally
agree (with) what you stated,
but you didn't mention Charlie
Dean and Ron Schultz, our leg-
islators here, they voted for
this. So, please let's, you know,
let's put the blame where it
goes. It was the Senate and
the House who pushed this bill
despite the wishes of the vast
majority of the people not to
vote for this thing. But Charlie
Dean, Ron Schultz- they were
part of this.
What about Crist?
I see from today's paper that
Progress Energy is having a
major advertising campaign to
increase rates even more, al-
though this time it is for actual
electricity.usage. Next we'll
probably see Obama's tax on
electricity. What role did Gov.
Crist play in this shakedown of
the public? It would be good to
let the people know before he
runs for higher office.
Work it out
In response to "Commis-
sion to close Freezer bar:" I
have to agree with the options


I1


about the law they did do
wrong but it is a viable
business. It draws a good .
clientele, it employs several
people of Citrus County and
it's the type of establishment
we want in this town. It's not
a bum bar. It's not a place for
degenerates to hang out. It is
good clientele and upstanding
people and a nice place for
visitors to go to and enjoy a
good time with a view of the
water. It should be kept. It is
in a nice spot in the vicinity of
other establishments.
Jobs needed
For all the negative re-
sponses to the Lowe's on U.S.
19: At this point in time in our
economy, we need
JND more places, more
jobs. It is going to em-
DF ploy many Citrus
County people in the
,. construction, and once
it's open, look at the
jobs it's going to sup-
ply for the people of
this town. It is going to
give competition to
)579 Home Depot. It's going
to keep prices low and
it is nothing but a win-
win situation for the people of
Citrus County.
Coverage lacking,
Today is June 5, Friday. I'm
reading the Homosassa Bea-
con and in it has the column
"Back in Time," and I'm read-
ing it. In 1932, all the things
that happened locally and it
has more information in
1932 than we're getting
today, which is 2009. I don't
know. The name of the col-
umn is "Back in Time." We
should go back in time in-
stead of forward, if that's the
way they do things. I'm not
satisfied with the news and
sports events and so on.
Thanks, deputy
Kudos to Sheriff Dawsy for
having a man such as Deputy
Rodriguez on the force. As a
member of CP5, I called for a
deputy on a situation I could-
n't or wouldn't handle, and
Deputy Rodriguez responded.
After he took care of the situ-
ation, he noticed my CP5
scout car was overheating, so
he graciously took care of
that as well as the overheated
member. Thank you, Deputy
Rodriguez, for caring.
Missing dog
If you live in the Highlands,
the east Highlands, and
you're missing a dog, a tan
dog that looks like a pit bull, I


found one dead up around
the corner from my house on
* Rainbow. I called the authi -
ties and they came and took
it away. I know it's sad to lose
a dog. We lost a little poodle
that wandered and got killed
on Apopka. So you have my
sympathies.
Thanks, Chuck
I'd like to personally thank
Charlie Crist for putting
ethanol in my gasoline, thus
creating a $600 repair bill.
The mechanic said my carbu-
retors were full of water. It's
supposed to be gasoline in
there but the ethanol has so
much moisture in there, it's
accumulating in the carbure-
tor, thus making my carbure-
tors rot out, giving me a $600
repair bill. The funny thing,
the mechanic said he had two
other vehicles in there with
the same problem. Thanks,
Charlie Crist. I can't go and
spend that money and help
stimulate the economy when
I'm giving it to the mechanic.
Slow response
My neighbor's dog killed
my cat. I called Animal Con-
trol at 9 o'clock in the, morn-
ing and they didn't show up
until 12:15. You can drive
from the southeast corner of
our county line to the north-
west corner of our county
line in an hour. Why did it
take Animal Control three
hours and 15 minutes to get
to my house? Somewhere,
something needs to be done
about the Animal Control re-
sponse time. I'm not the only
one they've refused to. come
to. They didn't refuse to come
to me, but they did refuse to
come to some other people
over the weekend. I'm sorry,
Animal Control. You need a
big makeover.
Utter laws
After living in Citrus
County for four-and-a-half
years, I've decided I must
consult a lawyer about the
littering law. I'm sure (in)
Florida, as most states,
there's a fine for throwing
trash along the highway. In
Citrus County, residents can
leave their uncovered
garbage cans on county
property 24/7 while their
neighbors with pride in their
property pick up their
garbage every time the wind
blows. Maybe a lawyer can
shed some light on what the
laws are and what actions
can be taken. I'm getting too
old to chase their garbage.

Quick fix
A quick and easy fix to the economy that
even makes sense: Dear Mr. President, there
are approximately 40 million people over 50
in the workforce. Pay them $1 million apiece
severance with the following stipulations:
They retire immediately; there are 40 million
job openings unemployment is
fixed. They must buy new American
cars; 40 million cars ordered -Wi
auto industry fixed. They either buy
a house or pay off their mortgage
housing crisis fixed. RS. If you
need more money, Mr. President,
ask members of the Senate and l
Congress to eliminate the IRS and
pass a tax schedule...with no write-
offs and no loopholes. For example:- CALL
$20,000 or less, no taxes; $21,000 5 -.
to $30,000, five percent taxes. UUJV
Thank you very much; next in line,
$31,000 to $60,000, 10 percent taxes.
Thank you, next, $61,000 to $99,000, 15
percent taxes. Thank you, next, $100,000 to
$1 billion, 20 percent in taxes. Thank you.
Mr. Millionaire, how much is your lifestyle
going to change by paying 20'percent on
your income?
Quicker, better
I was reading in "Life's riddles," in Sound
Off today (June 5), about the nurse who
wrote in about men having to keep their
testosterone levels right by burning the yard
waste. Well, I did get a chuckle out of it. On
the serious side of it, though, I am glad that
we are allowed to burn the yard waste. This
way we keep the yard clean. If we had to
wait until we gathered it up and take it to the
landfill, it would be costly and it would be
time consuming. So this is a quicker, better
way to keep the yards free of debris and
make it safer around the house not to have
all that dried brush and stuff out there. So ,
I'rtglad that the men are out there burning
in fthe yards.: .
Cheap salt
The.other day at the grocery store, I went
to buy tomato juice and I was checking the'
label and the one that has salt in it is much
Idwer and the one that does not have salt in


it is higher. Can you explain that to me? Why
would they charge so much? It seems like
when they put the salt in, it would be more
money, but it was, you know, not right. I
think it's wrong.
Tattered flag
I'm calling about this cell phone tower
flagpole on (County Road) 486 in
U ND1 Hernando across from Hampton
Square. The flag that is on it is in
NP such terrible shape. It's a disgrace. I
Wonder if there'e anybody that can
-A c do anything about getting that flag
rl repaired, or just removed.
Don't drive drunk
I just wanted to comment on the
letter from Lisa Vandeboe on Jai
.0579 Patel. I waited on him quite fre-
quently and he will be missed. This
is a reminder to everybody to not
drive drunk. You're not just hurting you; you
could be hurting someone else. Please don't
drive drunk. I see it every night. People who
don't deserve it are dying. Put your seatbelt
on, call a cab, do whatever you have to do.
All right, Jai will be missed.

Letters to THE EDITOR


Union coercion
There is proposed legislation in Con-
gress initiated by Democrats and out-
rageously titled "The Employee Free
Choice Act" In essence, the act would
make it easier for labor unions to co-
erce new members into joining and
collect millions of dollars in manda-
tory dues. Under the provisions of the
bill, secret ballot elections which have
been in place since the 1930s and pro-
tect the worker from retaliation from
management or union would be com-
pletely eliminated.
Even more absurdly, the bill pro-
vides that terms and conditions of a
contract between a company and
union could be dictated by government
employees who know nothing about
the business world.
This effort to force employees to join
and pay dues to a union comes at a
time when our economy is in shambles
and if passed would drive thousands
more jobs out of the U.S. through out-
sourcing.
Labor Unions, which were once the
friend of workers, are now the corrupt,
archaic enemies of economic well-
being.
Consider the fact that the major in-
dustries which have collapsed in re-
cent years steel, airlines and autos
have all been the most highly union-
ized industries. Also consider that for-
eign auto companies employ over
300,000 workers in the U.S. and that
those workers have wisely rejected
unions.
And if you think that unions look out
for their workers consider this: Thou-
sands of members of the United Auto
Workers have lost their jobs because
they cannot compete. Membership in
the UAW has gone from about 1.5mil-
lion to about 430,000. While these
workers 'are being laid off, the UAW
continues to maintain a cushy resort
and country club which was described
by one union member as being "de-
signed for use by the upper echelon of
the UAW" This resort has lost about
$23 million in the last five years while
dues-paying members are being tossed
out in the street
This legislation has been endorsed\
by President Obama as a payoff for
union votes and campaign contribu-
tions.
There was a time when unions acted
in the best interests of workers but that
day is long gone.

Let's speak up
In a June 1 Citrus County Chronicle
article, I read that the Public Service
Commission, members of which cast
the deciding votes on any increase in
our local electric rates from Progress
Energy Corp., made a decision to en-
sure that Progress Energy would con-
tinue to receive their 10 percent profit


for providing electric service to all the
ratepayers they serve. Does anything
strike you about the fact that they have
been given the right to receive a 10
percent profit to provide electricity to
us? This sweetheart deal was author-
ized by the Public Service Commission
members, appointed by the governor.
Our local grocery stores operate on a
2- to 3 percent profit margin. Do any of
us receive anything close to a 10 per-
cent interest in our savings accounts in
our local bank? Is anyone paying atten-
tion to this Public Service Commission
giveaway? Does this seem like fair
treatment to the ratepayers of Progress
Energy? The simple answer is no!
Progress Energy has failed their 1.7
million ratepayers in Florida, and the
over 10,000 people in Citrus County
who have signed petitions thus far to
protest these rate hikes. Progress En-
ergy is now petitioning the PSC to in-
crease our electric rates again for the
coming year.
Mr. Lyash, the highly paid Florida
CEO of Progress Energy, is so preoccu-
pied with his stockholders' gain and
his own compensation that he has for-
gotten the ratepayers' plight in these
tough economic times, and so has the
Public Service Commission, with one
exception.
It is time for us to take action to stop
this money grab by Progress Energy. It
is time to tell Progress Energy what we
think about their multiple rate hikes.
Mark your calendar. Come to the pub-
lic hearing on Friday, July 17,9 a.m. to
noon, at the Citrus County Auditorium,
3610 S. Florida Ave., Inverness. You
know the place; it's where we have the
Citrus County Fair each year
Let's make our voices heard loud
and clear to this out-of-touch electric
company!

Tennis game
Progress Energy's increases are a
joke. Why do we as customers pay for
modernization and expansion of a
company that is privately owned? The
PSC seems to be in the pocket of
Progress Energy. We are told that to
compensate for the increases we
should use less electricity.
(When I) lived on Long Island, N.Y,
Long Island Lighting (LILCO) raised
our rates. We were told to cut back on
our electrical usage to save money.
LILCO then got permission to add on
another increase so that they did not
lose money due to the lower usage.
This is like a tennis game, bouncing
the ball back and forth. Unfortunately,
the Progress Energy lobbyists are too
powerful for the people to win. Vote
out the good old boy leaders that. al-
ways work against the people of Citrus
County.

Commissioners weren't
real excited about creating
a plan because they were
struggling, with their rela-
tionship with the county ad-
ministrator. Now that Brad
Thorpe has been appointed.
as the new administrator,
the timing looks better
Commissioner Joe Meek
convinced his fellow board,
members last week to agree
to give a vision and strategic
plananother try this summer
Here's why that's an im-
portant step for all taxpay-
ers. When you don't have a
plan or a vision of where you
want to go you don't know
when you have arrived.


Since county government
is more like a living, breath-
ing animal, having a vision
and a plan simply helps you
make sure you're going in
the right direction.
Currently, the county
makes ,a lot of good deci-
sions each month based on
what comes before them.
You bring them a problem or
make a request and the five
members of the board will
make a decision. For the
most part, the King Solomon
routine is a reactive way to
lead an organization. ,
All Joe Meek is trying to
do is to get the board to sit
down and say this is what
we want to look like; and
this is how we want to get
there. That's a vision and a
strategic plan.
For instance, the commis-


We are all good at talking about this
kind of thing at election time, but it's
a different story when government
actually tries to get something down.


sioners might want to say
their vision is: "We want Cit-
rus County to be the best
place to live in Florida."
Well, that's fine. But what
the heck does it mean?
The plan would spell that
out in a series of objectives
that might include the fol-
lowing:
Citrus County will be a
safe place to live.
Citrus County will be a
place known for low taxes
and efficient government
Citrus County will be a
community that respects the


environment and protects
its natural resources.
Citrus County will be a
community that embraces the
free enterprise system and
respects and promotes the
rights of business to prosper
Citrus County is a com-
munity that protects the
health and welfare of its
children, senior citizens and
the disadvantaged.
Citrus County will pro-
vide services such as water,
sewer, and garbage in an
economical and environ-
mentally sensitive way.


Citrus County will develop
its infrastructure (roads, parks
etc.) in a way that anticipates
the future and guarantees cit-
izens access and mobility
Once you get a list of objec-
tives, the commissioners
would then establish the
strategies, goals and measures
that help them accomplish
their view of what the county
should look like. (I just made
these objectives up as an ex-
ample the great part about
this is that the commissioners
get to make up their own).
It's a simple process that
helps citizens and those in
government 'know what the'
common goals are. When the
board gets a request for ac-
tion, they can checkbackwith
their vision and objectives to
see if the request is consistent
with the long-term plan.


Citrus 20/20 created a vi-
sion for the county a num-
ber of years back, but that's
not the same thing as county
government having a vision
and strategic plan of its own.
We are all good at talking
about this kind of thing at
election time, but it's a dif-
ferent story when govern-
ment actually tries to get
something down.
Having a plan and then
working the plan will actu-
ally help all us regular citi-
zens know what the
politicians are really ac-
complishing on our behalf.
How can that be bad?

TARGET
Continued from Page C1

bought a few of those air-
plane-size bottles.
Problem was, I didn't ease
back into it My, drinking
was worse than it ever was.
My. health, which had
started to return to life,
quickly deteriorated. I was
committing suicide, one
shot at a time.
I didn't know then what I
now know: Alcoholism is a
progressive disease. It con-
tinues to thrive whether I'm
drinking or not If I'm alco-
holic, I can stop drinking for
10 years and 10 years later,
when I pick up a drink, my
body reacts as if I'd never
stopped in the first place.
The best analogy I've
heard is this: If my stereo is
turned up full blast and I
unplug it, and then plug it
back in five years later, it's
still at full blast That's alco-
holism.
I learned that it's a dis-
ease of the mind and body
My mind obsesses over it.
Once in my body, an allergy
kicks in and I crave it until I


can drink no more. That
usually doesn't happen until
I've passed out
Most people are not alco-
holics. Most people can
drink normally, meaning
they can take it or leave it
Most people I know are like
that They might have a few
beers at the bar and then go
home at a reasonable time
to their families. They get
up in the morning for work
and have no ill effects from
the night before.
Not so with me. I was
plagued or blessed, de-
pending on how you look at
it -. with awful hangovers
right from the start.
I craved alcohol. I had to
have it. I drank to excess
and it nearly cost me my
career, my family and my
sanity.
Yet today, I do not drink I
do not have to drink I
choose to stay sober today
and have an incredible life
to show for it
How did that happen?
Through a 12-step program,
other alcoholics who love
me and a relationship I
enjoy with God today that is
more important than any-
thing else.


The best analogy I've heard is this:
If my stereo is turned up full blast
and I unplug it, and then plug it back
in five years later, it's still at full blast.
That's alcoholism.


I bring all this up because
the other day I attended the
Drug Court graduation.
Drug Court is an 18-month
program for people who are
in legal trouble because of
drugs or alcohol. They-stay
clean for those 18 months,
attend program sessions,
keep out of trouble, and
their charges are wiped
clean. It isn't easy. Many
people who enter Drug
Court don't make it to the
end. The disease of addic-
tion is a powerful magnet
Many cannot pull away.
Last year Judge Barbara
Gurrola, who is now retired,
asked me to speak at the
Drug Court graduation. I was
thrilled with the opportunity
to share some of my story in
public and it's the first time I
had done that outside the
rooms of recovery.
But here's the point: The
word "graduation" is dan-


gerous to people like me. I
will not graduate from re-
covery. There is no cure for
alcoholism. I get a daily re-
prieve from the drink based
on a spiritual connection
with my higher power. Peo-
ple who are not alcoholics
or addicts probably think
this problem eventually
goes away. It never goes
away. Never I cannot stress
that enough.
Think of it as cancer in re-
mission. My alcoholism
stays in remission so long as
I don't pick up a drink
Alcoholics and addicts
who do not follow a rigorous
program of recovery often
find themselves with a drink
or drugs in their hands. This
is not opinion; it is my ob-
servation of seeing what
happens to my kind who
stray from the 12-step pro-
gram. They go out Many do
not make it back. The ones


who do return often look
beaten and bruised physi-
cally and emotionally. It is
not pretty. We welcome
them with warm hugs and
smiles.
With God's grace, I'll hit
three years of sobriety on
July 6. If I make it there, it
will happen one day at a
time. I don't say this to brag
because it was a power
much greater than I that got
me into recovery and keeps
me there. I also say this: If I
can stay sober, anyone can -
if he or she works at it.
The life I have today is
nothing from my previous
life. It's not just the drink
that God has removed, it's
all the garbage that went
with it: guilt, terror, hope-
lessness, self-hatred, the
feeling of doom that I lived
with daily for a long, long
time. A friend in recovery
says that only an alcoholic
can understand the despair
of another alcoholic.
Today I am happy most of
the time. Joy has touched
my heart and it's awesome.
Few things rattle me any-
more. God has blessed me
beyond my wildest dreams.
Listen. This is serious, se-


rious business. I heard re-
cently that only 3 percent of
the true alcoholics, in this
country actually seek help
through a 12-step program.
Once in the program, the
odds for success rise signif-
icantly, but that doesn't hap-
pen without personal
commitment to change a life
from the inside out. How
bad do I want my sobriety
and the peace that comes
with it? Mbre than anything.
If you think you have a
problem with drinking,
there are people like me
who want to help. The
phone number for the Alco-
holics Anonymous hotline is
621-0599. Or you can visit
online at www.ncinter-
group.com. There are 12-
step meetings throughout
Citrus County every day.
Or call me at 563-3228. My
name is Mike Wright and
I'm an alcoholic.

Bleak futures
I'm calling about the
young people in America. It
doesn't seem there's much
for us to look forward to in
life. We were taught that if
we work hard, take initia-
tive, be honest and make
the effort to go to college,
then we'll have decent lives.
I'm 24, in college...I main-
tain a dependable car, have
excellent work history refer-
ences, volunteer experi-
ence, and still can't find
work. I understand the
economy has everything to
do with it, but it shouldn't
be impossible to find a job.
I've had a 27-year-old
cousin commit suicide be-
cause of this situation. My
husband's cousin turned to
drugs and is comatose in a
hospital because he feels
hopeless. A local 24-year-
old committed suicide two
months ago because he
couldn't make ends meet. A
couple of my high school
friends went to college,,
can't get jobs with their de-
gree and now their lives are
out of control. Of course
the military is an option,
but we've all heard on the
news that if you're injured,
the military's not going to
take sufficient care of you.
Why serve if you could be
crippled and useless the
rest of your life? I would
love to serve, but won't be
in a position where I can't
take care of myself for the
rest of my life. If I can't
take care of myself, then
how can I be a positive part
of society? Where's young
people's place in this world?
I hope my generation will
be able to provide for future
generations.

Luncheon thanks
The Diamond Ridge resi-
dents want to thank the ones
that did such a good job of
the luncheon that was pro-
vided by her son, Harley
Webb and Patty, for his
mother, Elizabeth Webb. Also
had a memorial service by
the Hospice of (Citrus
County), which also Marie,
our social worker, asked if
they would do it. It was a spe-
cial service for Elizabeth
Webb. She was such a lovable
person and. always wanted to


laugh and to do tricks with
her sidekick, Elaine. They
would sit in the hallway, one
on each side. People passing,
they grabbed them, not ex-
pecting anything. Also they
would play with water guns
and get-them wet... Everybody
loved her and it was a real
special service that the Hos-
pice of Citrus County got to-
gether with the social worker,
Marie. And there's Shirley
and Ellie and Marty that all
did the decorations in the ac-
tivity room and everybody
that loved her went. Almost


everybody went to be there
for her... Elizabeth Webb, resi-
dent of Diamond Ridge,
passed away. She'll be
missedcvery much. Hospice
of Citrus County and Marie,
our social worker, gave~and
-said a beautiful memorial for.
her. Also, Shirley, Ellie and
Marty, her helpers. Beautiful
job, Shirley, and all you will
be missed. Hope to get all the
puzzles done. Love you,
Alice....ard the gang. It was a
shock to us all and we'll be
missing you much. Thank you
for knowing you.


Seatbelt confusion
I'm reading the.Sound
Off on Thursday (June 4)
and they wondered there
about passengers, too, con-
cerning the seatbelt law.
'And I heard the same thing
tt f-tifpas-sngers in the-
front or the back seat did
not have their seatbelts on,
the driver could be tick-
eted, and I didn't believe it
because that just really
seems unfair. Maybe it's
true, but I sure would like
to find out.

Seatbelt clarification
This is to the person that
was wanting to know about
the seatbelt law: That is for
everybody that is sitting in a
car, not just the driver.
Dropped charges
A lady walks into my busi-
ness, orders services and
doesn't pay. She's taken to
jail and then they find
drugs. So now she has two.
counts against her, yet the
prosecutor did not prose-
cute and dropped the case.
I'm wondering, why did the
prosecutor drop a felony
case when all the facts were
there and yet they refused
to prosecute these drug
people? Can somebody give
me some kind of an answer
as to how that takes place
in this county?
Gas tax a waste
This is about the gas tax
in Citrus County, having one
of the highest around at 6
cents per gallon. Well, for
having such a high gas tax,
Citrus County citizens,
you've got to agree we have
some of the shoddiest
roads. Grover Cleveland's
whoop-de-doos, the pits all
up (U.S.) 41, and (State
Road) 200 is definitely Ip
autobahn. We have some of
the worst roads around.
When's the last time you've
seen Citrus County.Road
Maintenance out there actu-
ally doing anything? I'll
guarantee you, it's been
eight years since I've seen
the men out there actually
working and tearing up road
and replacing it. It's a
waste. Oh yeah, we've got to
pay salaries for people like

So
Each year Big Brothers Big
Sisters hosts Bowl for Kids'
Sake Campaign benefiting Big
Brothers Big Sisters. Last year


Citrus County BBBS served
200 children and their families,
through the great work of our
Big Brothers, Big Sisters and
Big Couples. Today there are
more than 6,700 at-risk kids in
Citrus County that could use
our services. These kids need
the special friendship and sup-
port of a Big Brother, Big Sister
or Big Couple. That's why Bowl
for Kids' Sake is so important
and why we are asking you to
consider a Bowl for Kids' Sake
sponsorship or team to help us
provide that positive influence.
Bowl for Kids' Sake is not
about bowling! It's about raising
money and awareness for Big
Brothers Big Sisters so that
every child who needs and
wants a mentor may have one.
Our 2009 Bowl for Kids' Sake


Campaign is the largest annual
fundraising event we have to
support our programs and chil-
dren. There is no charge to the
children or families who receive
services from our agency. For
this reason we are asking you
to having a bowling team for
our campaign, ending with our
Funtastic August 1st event at
Manatee Lanes in Crystal
River. We need a captain and
four additional team members.
We ask you to try to raise at
least $600 for the team--easy
enough with all the tips we will
give you in your Team Captain
Kits. This is a lot of fun for em-
ployees, clubs and residents.
Sponsorships for businesses
start as low as $150 and will
give you a full-color banner that
would hang at Manatee Lanes


in Crystal River for over two
months. Great deal! To partici-
pate call Sheree Monroe, De-
velopment Director at (352)

ing the event. (Follow me on

information and interesting
online sites I find to help
businesses and job candi-
dates.) r
View the Green Guru's
video at, www.clmwork-
force.com/board_videos.asp
to learn more about going
green.
The American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act of
2009 has many provisions to
pump the nation with clean
energy, environmentally
high-performance govern-
ment buildings and more.
You can learn more at
www.recovery.gov. Small
business owners who want
to move into greener pas-.
tures should start searching
for opportunities by doing
searches on www.google
.com or sites for requests for
proposals (RFP), an invita-
tion for suppliers to submit
a bid for services or work.
The big business must have
a percentage of the govern-
ment work originating from
small businesses. Learn
more about this on an audio
recording at www.clmwork-
force .com/board_videos.asp
with Dr. Philip R. Geist of
the Small Business Devel-
opment Center in Ocala.

Builders seek


Due to the prolonged negative
state of our economy, the CCBA
Public Relations Committee will
once again conduct their Stuffed
Backpack Drive known as "Build-
ing Supplies for Education," with
collections of school supply do-
nations to begin immediately
School supply donations can
be dropped off at the CCBA from
9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through
Friday. Thanks to the generous
donations of many of our CCBA
members and Citrus County Com-
munity members, last year we
were able to assist more than 150
Citrus County school children
with backpacks full of much
needed supplies for the 2008-09


school year.
We feel the need has grown and
plan to distribute 200 backpacks
this year. Sponsored by BB & T
Branch Banking & Trust in Bev-
erly Hills, these backpacks will
be distributed from 3.p.m. to 7
p.m. Aug. 10 at the CCBA in
Lecanto. Additionally, we are
planning an informational forum
that will make information about
various local child and education
geared groups available to par-
ents as they pick up the com-
pleted backpacks. We are very
excited and passionate about this
endeavor and are looking for-
ward to getting started! Please
help us by donating supplies


supplies
today or by forwarding the assis-
tance application to a child in
need today. For more informa-
tion, a list of drop off locations, or
assistance please go to www.cit-
rusbuilders.com. We also encour-
age you to sponsor a child at $25
each. We will be happy to shop for
you. You may contact Public Re-
lations Chairwoman Melissa
Sutherland at Air Care Heating &
Cooling, (352) 621-3444 or CCBA
Executive Officer Donna Bidlack,
(352) 746-9028. We have a limit of
only 200 backpacks so the earlier
assistance applications are re-
ceived the better. Together we
can make this more successful
the second time around!

long after, meeting his wife
and starting a family to see
that he wanted a different
career. Most of Eric's work-
ing life has been in sales
and he enjoys the interac-
tion with people from all
walks of life, as well as the
challenges that come along
with them. Eric has spent
the last 5 years at Citrus

Eric is a Florida State Cer-'
tified pest control operator.
Eric finds it rewarding to
work for a:great local com-
pany that has a strong com-
munity value and a
reputation for top service.

their new location in Crys-
tal River across from the
Post office.

rus Pest Management at the

retary of Citrus Builders

forward to representing his
company at higher level as

tember of 2009.
All of Eric's spare time is
. committed to his girls who
