Floral City residents assemble to


rally agamst perceived spike mi crime


AMANDA MIMS
Chronicle
Floral City residents are
saying enough is enough.
They're tired vehicles, ATVs
and other equipment being
stolen. They want to regain
peace of mind.
Although the sheriff's office
says there has been no increase
in those types of crimes in the
past year for that area, some
Floral City residents say
they're noticing more crime
than before. Dora Thorne,
who lives at Trails End Road
and County Road 48, said she
knows of 20 people who say
they've been victimized in the
past six weeks.
Thorne and others organ-
ized a meeting of citizens to
address the issue, which took
place Fridaynight at the Cit-
rus County Cattlemen's Asso-
ciation building.
About 70 people went to the
two-hour meeting, including


Several audience members questioned law enforcement officers
about what they can legally do if they catch a thief in the act.
(Capt. Buddy) Grant said use of firearms is allowed to protect
yourself or others from death or serious bodily harm.


five representatives of the
sheriff's office. Residents dis-
cussed with them ways to pre-'
vent crime in the area and
protect their property.
Thorne told residents it was
time to take the town back.
"It's going to take work ...
from all of us," she said. "Upi
until a week ago, I left the keys
in the truck, doors unlocked.
Crime is everywhere, as we all
know."
Sheriff's Capt. Buddy Grant
addressed the crowd and said
statistics aside, what's really
important is whether or not
residents feel safe. If they don't
feel safe, then it's time to make
changes.
Some of the best ways to pre-
.vent crime are to secure be-


longings and to keep valuables
out of sight
"Do not put yourself out
there to let them take advan-
tage of you," Grant said.
Kathy Ray, a recent theft
victim, had her truck and
ATVs stolen from her property
on Derby Oaks Drive. She told
her story with the intention of
making other residents aware
of what can happen. The theft
occurred less than two weeks
ago at 4:45 a.m. just 10 feet
from her bedroom window,
she said.
The thief had to travel the
length of her 600-foot drive-
way to reach her home from
the road. Ray and her hus-
band awoke as they heard the
sound of their 2002 Ford F-


150's engine running. Al-'
though Ray's husband gave
chase, the thief got away with
the truck, a trailer,, and the
couple's all-terrain vehicles.
Since then, no arrests have
been made and the truck,
found in Dade City, is the only
item that has been recovered.
"It's basically junk now,"
Ray said. "My truck was my
pride and joy." Ray hasn't had
peace of mind since the inci-
dent "To be honest, I'm a little
creeped out. Every time my
refrigerator makes a noise, I
wake up."

officers about what they can

Miranda
Editor's note: On June 5, 2008, deputies
arrested Scott Coleman at a local McDon-
ald's on a violation of probation charge.
While Coleman sat in the back of a patrol
car waiting to be transported to the Citrus
County Detention Facility authorities said
he indicated he wanted to talk about the
death of James Powell. The day before,
Coleman had already invoked his right to
an attorney when police spoke with him, so
Detective Gary Atchison had him sign an
in-custody wavier form indicating he was
waiving his right to speak with his attorney
and various other rights. Atchison also read
the form aloud to Coleman. It was
recorded. A judge has ruled that form was
"fatally defective," and Coleman's confes-
sion has been ruled inadmissible in court
Also inadmissible is the murder weapon
used in the crime, as detectives only found
it after hearing Coleman's confession. A
narrative of the events surrounding the
death of Powell follows. Excerpts from
Coleman's confession are in italics.
SHEMIR WILES
Chronicle
Marilyn Powell's memories haunt her
each day. t
She remembers the good times with her
husband,of 27 years, James going to the
movies or just doing the simple things. But
she can't shake the lingering thoughts of
the agony her husband must have suffered
in his last moments while being beaten to
death with a hammer.
"I can't stop thinking about it," Marilyn
said. "It's devastating."
Marilyn and James first met as teenagers
in 1978 in Minnesota. James had moved
there from Florida, she said, after his fa-
ther received a job working as a lineman
for a power company. Mutual friends set
the two up that summer and Marilyn fell
head over heels in love,
"I was in love with his big blue eyes," she
said. "He was my teenage sweetheart."
The couple dated for several years while
James served in the Navy. In 1982, at the
age of 20, they married.
Marilyn said James was very good at tak-
ing care of her and their four children. She
enjoyed his sensitive side and they liked
spending time together
"He was a cupcake," Marilyn said.
In 1996, James sunk deeply into depres-
sion and began battling anxiety. Doctors at
the VA hospital diagnosed him as bipolar
During a mood episode, Marilyn said
James would often become depressed and
manic at the same time. However, with
medication, he could cope.

Sheriffs office

reviews, revises

Miranda form
MIKE WRIGHT
Chronicle
The first form had no heading.
The second read, "Request to speak with
a Deputy of the Citrus County Sheriff's Of-
fice Miranda Rights Advisement"
The final version has a heading that gets
right to the point: "Constitutional rights
waiver form & lawyer waiver."
Such is the progression of Miranda warn-
ings prepared by the sheriff's officials since
Judge Richard "Ric" Howard ruled in early
November the form in use then was "fatally
defective" because it didn't specifically
state the defendant had the right to ask for
a lawyer during questioning.
Capt. Richard Wesch, the sheriff's office
attorney, issued the latest version just Fri-
day afternoon. In a memo to all sheriff's of-
fice sworn personnel, he stated the form
should be used for Miranda rights advise-
ment purposes.
"You are hereby requested to commence its
utilization immediately," he wrote. "Please
dispose and cease utilization of all previ-
' ous forms dealing with this subject matter."
Citrus County is the only law enforce-
ment agency in the 5th Judicial Circuit to
use a special Miranda form for a very spe-

MIRANDA
Continued from Page Al
James continued taking
his medicine as prescribed,
until 2005, when several of
his family members urged
him to stop. She admitted
he stayed "drugged up"
most of the time and he did
gain weight, but she knew
what would happen if he
stopped taking his medica-
tions. Nonetheless, he quit
"He was terrible," Mari-
lyn said. "He was treating
me pretty bad."
Then one day, he left
without any explanation.
Marilyn said she knew he
went to St Petersburg,
where his parents lived, and
then to Jamaica, but during
the eight months he Was
gone, she had no clue what
he was doing. She called
James a "vulnerable adult"
who was easily influenced
and incapable of making de-
cisions for himself when off
his medication.
When he did finally re-
turn home to Minnesota,
James stayed for about a
year and a half before tak-
ing off again in August 2007.
mo
On the evening of May 40,
2008, James drove two men,
Scott Coleman and Bill
Cullen, to an ATM machine
and Coleman used James
Powell's debit card and PIN
number to withdraw money
James bought alcohol with
some of the money and
dropped Coleman and
Cullen off at Cullen's resi-
dence before returning to
Coleman's for a night of
drinking with Coleman's
roommate, Walt Konupka.
Shortly after Coleman re-
turned home, James and
Konupka began fighting.


Now
Coleman: "So I went back
out, walked around through
the bathroom and out
through Walt's room and
Jim was sitting on the couch
then and Walt was on the
ground. And my lamp was
knocked over and busted...
...all this bread is ripped to
shreds all over the place ...
and I'm like, 'What's up?
What are you guys doing?
This is my room,'you know,
and they were just they
are slurring."
OE.
Coleman helped Walt to
his bedroom and walked
James out the door. But
James fell in the front yard,
so Coleman walked him
over to his car. Coleman was
angry with James and Walt
for tearing up the living
room.
He sat James by the car,
but James wouldn't stay put
He kept trying, to follow
Coleman back home. It
began to wear on Coleman's
nerves. He was a laid-back
guy who let things slide, but
that night Coleman wasn't
going let things slide any-
more.
SEE
Atchison: "I don't blame
you."
Coleman: "I mean, just
had it, you know It's like,
geez guys, you know."
Atchison: "Seems like you
can'tget a break in life."
Coleman: "No, what are
you going to do, man? You
try to have this little private
place and you can't even
have it"
Atchison: "To yourself,
yep."
Coleman: 'And so we just
...we started walking back
up and he was right behind
me, you know, stumbling.
And I'm like, 'Jim, you can't


come up here man. You just
can't come on up.' I said,
'You got stay back here. You
ain't coming back into my
place,' you know ...so, Jim
just kept it up. So, Istopped.
him. I couldn't take it Ijust
went through the roof,"
mu
Marilyn said James was
supposed to go on a camp-
ing trip with his parents
when he disappeared the
second time. She didn't
know where James went.
She said she figured James
went back to St Petersburg,
but she had no clue he was
living in Citrus County.
While he was gone, Mari-
lyn said she and her family
would become angry, but
they understood the situa-
tion, so they tried to remain
positive.
"We dealt with it, you
know. We had to," she said.
But the whole time she
would worry Marilyn said
she knew he self-medicated
with alcohol and marijuana,
and she worried about her
husband's well-being.
"I used to tell him he was
going to wind up being
killed," she said.
NEE
In the moonlight, Cole-
man spotted the hammer he
had been using earlier in
the day Before he knew, he
said he was beating James
over the head with it
mom
Atchison: "You was hit-
tinghim with the hammer?"
Coleman: "'Yeah, yeah, I
couldn't stand it He's still
cussing at me. And then I
just threw it and went back
in the house."
Atchison: "Howmany times
do you think you hit him?"
Coleman: "Ihave no idea."
Atchison: "Several?"
Coleman: "Yeah."


Eu.
In an old, run-down van in
the yard, investigators
found the bloody hammer
on top of cardboard boxes
underneath a quilt behind
the driver's seat.
Three days later, around
8:54 a.m., deputies re-
sponded to a call about a
dead body at 1740 S. Palm
Ave. in Homosassa. An ID
card near the body read
James E. Powell. A para-
medic pronounced James
dead at the scene.
The next day, an autopsy
revealed James died from
blunt head trauma. The
manner of death was ruled
a homicide. Law enforce-
ment officers searched the
property extensively, but
turned up few clues to
James' mysterious death.
The property owners,
Wayne and Debbie Fall-
stitch, told authorities they
met James only a few weeks
before at the post office.
James needed somewhere
to stay, so they said they let
him live at a mobile home
on their property, but


James said he preferred
the outdoors, so he moved
into the back of a moving
truck behind Coleman's
home.
N E
Atchison: "Did you think
you think you killed him?"
Coleman: "I didn't know.
And then I..:'
Atchison: "When you did-
n't see him the next day?"
Coleman: "I couldn't be-
lieve I did it"
Atchison: "Huh?"
Coleman: "Couldn't be-
lieve I did it God.."
Atchison: "A man's rage
gets a hold of him quick,
.doesn't it?"
Coleman: "Doesn'tmatter
how laid back you are.
Something can get to you.."
mo
When Marilyn received
the call that James had been
reportedly murdered, she
didn't know what to think
"Oh my God," she said.
"When I found out, I was
shocked."
She called her children
and together, she said, they
grieved.


But grief took a back seat
to anger when she found out
Coleman was released from
jail because of a faulty Mi-
randa form.
"I was ready to go down
there and kill him myself,"
she said.
The whole ordeal, she
said, has caused her and her
family a lot of mental an-
guish. Marilyn said sho cur-
rently takes Xanax to help
with her anxiety.
Some days, Marilyn said.
she finds herself telling
coworkers that she can't
move on. .And when she's
playing with her grandchild
- born after her husband's
death she can't help but
wish he was there.
"I'm hoping they get
(Coleman) back in jail,"
Marilyn said. "It's totally un-
just He's an animal and he
belongs in the pen."

cific situation: A defen-
dant is in custody, has an
attorney and asks to speak
with a detective without
the attorney present.
Officers traditionally
read defendants their Mi-
randa rights from a card
they keep with them, assis-
tant state attorney Ric
Ridgway said. Interviews
with defendants, including
their acknowledgement of
being read their Miranda
rights, are usually
recorded.
Citrus sheriff's officials
began using the special-
ized form in 2004. It said
the defendant had the
right to remain silent and
would receive an attorney
if he could not afford one.
It also said: "I can decide
at any time to exercise
these rights and not an-
swer any questions or
make any statements."
The state Supreme
Court later ruled in a sep-
arate case. that the Mi-
randa ruling must
specifically state that de-
fendants have the right to
ask for an attorney at any
time during questioning.
That ruling, which was
heard last week on appeal
to the U.S. Supreme Court,
was the basis for Howard's
decision in early Novem-
ber to throw out the con-
fession of a Homosassa
man charged with second-
degree murder in the ham-
mer beating death of
another man,
Prosecutors are appeal-
ing that decision to the 5th
District Court of Appeal.
The sheriff's office
would not say why it was
still using the form even
after the state Supreme
Court's ruling.
'Wesch was not the sher-
iff's office legal counsel
when the form was cre-
ated. He said after the
Supreme Court ruling, he
reviewed Miranda cards to
make sure they included
all the pertinent warnings.
"I checked the cards,"
he said last week in an in-
terview.
However, asked if he
also.reviewed the Miranda
fba used for in-custody
etidats, Wesch ended
the reporter's interview
and directed questions to
sheriff's spokeswoman
Gail Tierney.
Tierney said in a state-
ment to the Chronicle that
the sheriff's office would
not comment about the
issue.
"Seeing as the entire
issue of utilizing the Mi-
randa forms with subjects
who are already in custody
(but have requested to
speak with law enforce-
ment) is under appeal with
the U.S. Supreme Court
and the 5th District Court
of Appeals, this agency
will not be commenting
further on the forms at this
time," Tierney wrote.
Memos and e-mail ob-
tained by the Chronicle
through a public records
request show that Wesch
began the process of re-
placing the forms Nov. 17
- more than a week after
Howard ruled the Mi-


BUICKC PONTIAC GIMIC


randa form was "fatally
defective."
Wesch sent e-mails to
law enforcement agencies
in Florida asking for sug-
gestions.
"Recently our waiver
form, which is utilized
when an in custody defen-
dant, who has previously
invoked his/her rights
under Miranda changes
his/her mind and wants to
talk to law enforcement
has been called into ques-
tion," Wesch wrote. "Might
anyone have a recently
updated form that they
would be willing to share
for comparison pur-
poses?"
By Dec. 2, Wesch had
sent a new form to the
State Attorney's Office for
review and then off to pa-
trol officers for immediate
use. It was a two-page form
that included 12 boxes for
defendants that went be-
yond requirements of the
Miranda warning itself.
For example, the form
twice asked the defendant
to specifically name the
deputy or detective he
wanted to speak with, and
then list the name of the
deputy he was speaking
with at the time the form
was completed.
Capt. James Cernich of
the Criminal Investiga-
tions Division apparently
received an advance copy
of the form, because he
sent a Nov. 23 e-mail to
Wesch that read: "Just my
opinion, but I think the
new form is too long and
too repetitive."
Sgt. Danny Linhart of
the Major Crimes Division
wrote to Wesch on Dec. 2
that the form was confus-
ing.
"I think you may want to
give a little more explana-
tion, especially to our road
patrol people," Linhart
wrote. "Some have no
knowledge of the situation
that occurred."
Linhart also wondered
if the new Miranda form
was part of sheriff's office
policy
"...There is going to be
times when the form is not
readily available and we
are going to go on tape and
just clarify they requested
to speak with us and also
read Miranda per card,"
Liphart wrote. "I don't
want a defense attorney
bringing up the point that
we cannot even follow our
own policies."
Wesch then revised the
form. The final one issued
Friday reduces the form to
one page and sticks to the
Miranda issue and the fact
that the defendant is ask-
ing to speak with a detec-
tive.
Each statement includes
space that allows the de-
fendant to check "yes" or
"no."
Unlike the original
form, this one includes
this statement: "I know I
can decide to answer
questions now without my
lawyer present and I still
have the right to stop an-
swering questions at any
time or to ask for my
lawyer to be present."
Plus, unlike the original
form, the new one re-
quires signatures of two
witnesses instead of just
one.

Participants
sought for 2009
hearing aid
field study
For the third consecutive year
my audiology clinics have received
a financial grant to, perform a
landmark field study on a new
hearing aid model. The ZIGA is a
small compact hearing aid that
leaves the ear open to natural
sound and delivers understandable
quality in noisy situations.
In exchange for completing a
pre-.and post-fitting questionnaire
participants will earn free use of
this hearing aid for 30 days. My
college degree audiologists will
provide all exams and lab services
free of charge through a generous
research grant from Resound.
At the end of this thirty day trial,
participants will return the aids or
purchase them with a generous
field study discount.

On the second of their three trips to Alaska, Ruth and Nick Nickles, Beverly
HllIs, visited Mendenhall Glacier and signed up for a white water rafting ad-
venture. The day was quite warm and the photo shows a stop midway in the
course for lunch on native goodies. The tour guide announced that we were free
to swim in the 45-degree water, and after some friendly goading from the other
crew members, Nick took the plunge with the guide; however, no amount of
coaxing could convince Ruth to join him.

The Birth of Jesus$:


Matthew 1:18-25


Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. When his mother
Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they -lived together, she was
found with child through the Holy Spirit. Joseph her husband, since he was
a righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce
her quietly. Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord
appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph, son of David, do not be
afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the Holy .
Spirit that this child has been conceived in her. She will bear a son and you
are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins" "
All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:
"Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel",


which means "God is with us." When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had
into his home. He had no relations with her until she bore a son, and he named him Jesus.


commanded him and took his wife "

Former CRHS baseball standout will

Hunter Smith is a living exam-

Smith, a former baseball stand-

(dFCC) baseball team, used the


early signing period to map out his
next move.
Smith has signed with Troy Uni-
versity, a Division I baseball pro-
gram, effective upon graduation
from CFCC in May 2010. Smith, a
sophomore, still has one more sea-
son left of baseball at CFC'C.

,town is listed as Inverness and he
went to both Citrus and Crystal


River, Smith said his mom's side cited to have Smith in the fold.

Webb top runner at



Jingle1 Bell 5K Run


Former Lecanto

athlete completes

course in 17:16
LARRY BUGG
For the Chronicle
Tory Webb had a short run
Saturday morning.
The former Lecanto High
cross country standout is
used to running 8Ks and
lOKs when he is running for
the University of Tampa.
No wonder he won the
2009 Jingle Bell 5K race at
Wallace Brooks Park
Webb had a time of 17:16.
Tim Wenger, a sophomore at
Citrus High, was second with
a time of 17:26. Former Citrus
High runner Milton Lyons
was third with a time of 17:40.
The time didn't impress
Webb.
"It's all right for training
right now," he said. "I run at
the:IJniversity.oLTampa-and
our season is over I am train-
ing on my own. I came home.
I took it out too fast!"
Kevin Sweeney won the
masters race, finishing fourth
with a time of 17:50. Beverly
Hills runner Marjolen Baas
won the female masters' tile
with a time of 20:45.
Ocala's Mary Menton was
not acting her age when she
won the women's overall title
with a time of 18:48. She was
seventh overall and is 46
years old.
Menton has changed her
approach to running.
"I used to be very competi-
tive in the 90s," she said. "I
just come out for fun. I basi-
cally run 50 miles a week I
coach at Trinity Catholic
(High School). My goal was to
break 19. This is my speed
workout Hopefully, I in-
spired my kids to come out
and run. I quit racing about
five years ago."
Wenger wasn't pushing
himself real hard and still
ended up second.

"Cross country season
ended two weeks ago so I was
taking two weeks off," said
Wenger, whose last race was
in the Class 3A state meet "I
always like this race. I sure
do like running in front of the
crowd. I beat my brother
Ben."
Hernando's Paul Dorey is
practically a walking poster
man for running .for the
health of it The 69-year-old
distance runner has used dis-
tance runningto help himself
with heart and cancer chal-
lenges. He will run and walk
through the races.
"It (the race) was nice, a lit-
tie humid," he said. "The
course is nice. I overcame
prostate problems. They re-
moved it at the end of Sep-
tember. I have done maybe
400 races. A year ago, I had
over 200 medals. These are
the best run races in the
country."
Lecanto's Leon Boyajan,
53, is happy to be a loser.
Through running and work-
ing out in the Tonya D'Anna
Boot Camp, he has dropped
his weight from around 400
pounds to 327 pounds.
He looks forward to feeling
skinny some day.
The Jingle Bell 5K is run
just before the Inverness
Christmas Parade and the
runners often get some en-
couragement from the crowd
on the streets.
"I feel pretty good," he
said. "I want to get under 200
pounds. The heart is great I
started in July. I will probably
do this for the rest of my life.
Big turnout (Running in front
of a crowd) is great motiva-
tion. My wife, Peggy, runs
with me. She keeps me moti-
vated."
Karen Eck Stukes brought
her nine-year-old son, Trent,
out for a run and recalled her
days when she was a high
school cross country and
track runner. Stukes, now a
real estate agent in Crystal
River, ran for an outstanding
Crystal River High School






.-...


cross country team. Her-son
was first in his age group and
may be a future running star
Her husband, Tony, is the
athletic director at Crystal
River High School.
This was her first race in 19
years.
"It was hot," she said. "I
feel good, winded but good.
It's not bad. I run in Crystal
River where it's all flat He
(Trent) beat me. He sprinted
at the end and I didn't I'm
hoping to get back into it
(competitive running)."
Race director Chris Moling
was doing some ho ho hoing
over the 341 runners start the
race.
"It was the biggest Jingle
Bell to date," Moling said.
"We're glad to have the num-
bers. We had great support
from the City of Inverness
and all the athletes. Our run-
ning community keeps grow-
ing. There are a lot of
elementary school and mid-
dle school athletes that we
never had before. They are
starting their programs early.
They are learning how to run.
In the elementary group, we
probably had over 50. We can
take 600 or 700 in this race."

SMITH
Continued from Page B1

2006 and 2007.
As a freshman at CFCC,
Smith played first base and
batted .414 with 18 doubles,
six home runs and 55 RBIS.
That stellar level of play re-
sulted in Smith garnering
several accolades including
second team All-State and
first team All-Mid-Florida
Conference. ,
Smith said he didn't get
Shis first major offer until
after that standout season
but once he did, they kept
coming.
CFCC coach Marty Smith

knew what kind of player
his team was getting in
Hunter Smith when the Pa-
triots signed him out of high
school but even he was
mildly surprised at the out-
put of his first baseman.
"We knew he could hit,"
Marty Smith said. "But he
had a huge year for us."
Major colleges weren't
the only radar Hunter Smith
showed up: Smith also had
sit-downs with several pro-
fessional baseball teams in
anticipation of being
drafted down the road.
Another positive about
figuring out his future is
that Hunter Smith can just
have fun now.
"The stress is not even

there, it's not even a ftor
any more," he said. It's
time to just play ball."
After consistency geing
better every year since
ing a varsity spot as a W
man at Citrus, those who've
seen Smith's improvement
expect it to continue.
"He can be a tremendous
player in that league," AiNty-
Smith said of HufiW"
"Troy's a pretty offerivi --

Polluters must take responsibility


DAVID GUEST
Special to the Chronicle
t is hard to imagine anyone
defending the polluters that
are turning our waters green.
- At long last, the U.S. Environ-
Snental Protection Agency is
agreeing to set legal, enforceable
l imits on Florida's worst water
0.,pollution problem: excess nutrient
,Fuhoff from fertilizer and manure.
"Now the state's biggest polluters
pre trying to get out of complying.
-! Florida has one of the worst
-Water pollution problems in the


nation. We've got toxic algae
blooms, contaminated drinking
water, beaches closed by danger-
ous bacteria and red tide, rivers
fouled with green slime, dead fish,
dead lakes and excess nutrients
bubbling out of our crystal springs.
A Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection report last
year found that half the state's
rivers and more than half of its
lakes had poor water quality. Ex-
posure to blue-green algae toxins
- when people drink the water,
touch it, or inhale vapors from it-
can cause rashes, skin and eye ir-


ritation, allergic reactions, gas-
trointestinal upset, serious illness
and even death. In June 2008, a
water treatment plant serving
30,000 people shut down after a
toxic blue-green algae bloom on
the Caloosahatchee River threat-
ened the plant's water supply.
Yet, for years, the state has al-
lowed polluters to voluntarily con-
trol their messes, in a weak
regulatory program called "Best
Management Practices." It's de-
veloped into a secret honor code
system for a well-heeled, politi-
cally powerful industry.


And the state has tipped the bal-
ance, economically speaking. A
political favor, now enshrined in
state law, says agricultural opera-
tions don't have to install pollution
controls unless the measures will
either increase a company's prof-
its or are cost-neutral.
What about the taxpayers' cost?
Is it really fair to give the corpora-
tions a break when, we taxpayers
are on the hook for billions of dol-
lars in water pollution cleanup
costs? When our rivers and lakes
are covered with green slime?

W watching the mess
unravel at Citrus
Memorialhospi-
tal in Inverness is like liv-
ing through the divorce of
two good friends.
At first you're shocked
when your friends start
saying bad things about
each other.
Then both of them want
you to take sides in their
dispute.
Then you jtst wish
they'd grow up and start
acting like adults and re-
solve their differences for
the sake of the kids.
Then you wish the
whole thing would just be.

There's a major divorce
going on at Citrus Memo-

medical folks are caught
in the middle.
While a formal media-
tion effort is scheduled,
both sides have hotshot
lawyers and the fighting
has escalated to the point
where they would have a
hard time agreeing on

's "A universal feeling, whether well or ill
founded, cannot be safely disregarded."
Abraham Lincoln,
speech, Peoria, III.,
Oct. 16, 1854


CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE


PUBLIC HEALTH


Voters should



elect hospital



board members


here have been dozens of
news stories published
in the Chronicle over the
last year that have documented
the controversies at Citrus Me-
morial hospital in Inverness.
There is no simple solution
to resolve the struggle for
power that has embroiled the
county's public
hospital. But we THE IS
do know that this
controversy has The ful
diverted the at- our ho
tention of the pro-
fessionals who OUR OP1
administer the fa-
cility, the volun- The ele
teers who serve in should ha'
advisory capaci-
ties and the physicians who
practice there.
The political infighting is so
deep and emotional that we se-
riously question if any work-
able compromise can be
reached in upcoming media-
tion sessions with the warring
parties. And that's why we rec-
ommend that the best solution
for Citrus Memorial is for the
existing governing board and
foundation board to both be
abolished and replaced by a
new board that is elected by
the citizens of Citrus County.
Currently the hospital is
managed by a governing board
appointed by the sitting gover-
nor of Florida. That governing
board decided years ago that it
made sense to lease the day-to-
day operations of the hospital
to a foundation board that it
created and appointed.
In recent years the relation-
ship between the governing
board and the foundation
board has grown dysfunctional.
Many physicians who once
saw themselves as partners of
the hospital now see them-
selves as competitors for
health care consumers. And
many of those physicians
have grown angry with the hos-
pital because they feel they
have been victims of unfair
competition.


No common sense
No common sense that's
what's wrong with this
country's court system.
A guy sets his wife on 0V
fire. She's in the hospital
with burns over 80 per-
cent of her body. He's
sitting comfortably in jail
with free food, free den-
tal, health care, etc.
That's not right. In Wash-
ington state, four police CAL
officers are gunned down 563
while they eat breakfast. UVU"
All together, they were
parents of nine children. The ac-
cused gunman was in jail serving
a 95-year prison term in
Arkansas, but his sentence was
commuted in 2000. This guy was
jailed recently on several charges,
including child rape, but was re-
leased on bond. Please tell me


The physicians in the com-
munity, with the assistance of
state Sen. Charles Dean, R-In-
verness, have won control of
the governing board by secur-
ing friendly appointments from
Gov. Charlie Crist.
The dueling special interests
have created a complex battle-
ground that is dif-
;SUE: ficult for the
IU E average citizen to
ure of understand. Lawyers
spital. have been hired,
lawsuits have been
INION: threatened and
preparations for a
:torate long-term conflict
re the say. have begun.
The outrageous
part of this conflict is the tax-
payers will be forced to pay the
exorbitant legal bills on both side
of the battle. No matter what
happens, taxpayers will lose
because the folks involved have
an inability to find solutions.
Property owners pay a prop-
erty tax to balance the budget
of the public hospital and en-
sure that health care services
are available to indigents.
While the public pays a tax,
Citrus County residents cur-
rently do not have a say in how
their tax dollars are spent
It's time for that to change.
This week a legislative dele-
gation meeting will take place
in Inverness where our three
representatives in Tallahassee
have a public meeting to con-
sider local legislation.
We believe the top item on
their list for 2010 is to change
the governing format of Citrus
Memorial to an elected board
of citizens. And now is the time
to make sure that all of the
business at our public hospital
is conducted in public.
Sen. Dean, Sen. Mike Fasano
and Rep. Ron Schultz need to step

During this holiday season, it's important to remember
that many families in Citrus County are in need. The United
Way of Citrus County supports 21 nonprofit agencies that
meet the needs of county residents. If each household could contribute $25 to the cause,
United Way would be able to provide funding for these important services. Please do
your part and send a check to: United Way of Citrus County, c/o Citrus County Chronicle,

LETTERS to the Editor


How to help
I read with'interest Gene
Musselman's letter in the Nov.
19 Chronicle, titled "Help
Stop Elder Abuse." Mr. Mus-
selman is obviously a caring
person and a good neighbor.
He points out the growing
problem with the incidences
of the abuse of vulnerable
adults, which should concern
us all.
As a program administrator
for Adult Protective Services,
with the Florida Department
of Children and Families, I
have oversight of the Adult
Protection Program. For the
fiscal year 2008-09, our staff
investigated 2,955 complaints
of abuse, neglect, exploitation
and self neglect of our vulner-
able citizens. Sadly, it is esti-
mated that only one in four
cases are actually reported to
authorities. Elder abuse cuts
across all socioeconomic
lines, from the richest to the
poorest. It occurs in the com-
munity as well as in care facil-
ities housing our vulnerable
adults.
Financial exploitation, es-
pecially in today's economy,
appears to be on the rise.
Some vulnerable adults are
wiped out of their life savings
within a matter of months by,
more often than not, someone
well known to them.
. In Florida, anyone suspect-
ing the abuse, neglect, ex-
ploitation or self-neglect of a
vulnerable adult is mandated
to make a report to the
Florida Abuse Hotline. Anony-
mous reports can be made to
the hotline by calling 1 (800)
962-2873. The reporter's name
is kept confidential. Once the
report is called to the hotline,
we make face-to-face contact
with the vulnerable adult

Sheriff's budget
I have been following with
interest the sheriff's takeover
of the Crystal River Police De-
partment and the Animal Con-
trol Department, increasing an
already huge span of control
and presumably expanding his
budgetary responsibilities.
Having worked in a large
corporation for 25 years and
being required to submit a
proposed budget and manage
to an approved budget, I find it
remarkable that a "constitu-
tional officer" (i.e., Sheriff
Dawsy) is not required to do
the same.
Incidentally, I have been un-
able to find where it is written
that a constitutional officer is
permitted to spend his/her
budgeted monies any way
he/she wishes, as reported in
the Chronicle. If, in fact, this is.
correct, the system needs fix-
ing.
What is the purpose of budg-
eting? It raises the question of
credibility of a constitutional
officer's budget.
I'm not questioning whether
the sheriff's staff deserves a
bonus or the Sheriff's Office
needs a new car or the offices
need remodeling I'm just
suggesting that if they're re-
quired, the expenses should be
included in an approved
budget.
I would think that the board
of commissioners, as represen-
tatives of the taxpaying citi-
zens, would view the sheriff's
next budget proposal with a
critical eye. It seems to me
that monies budgeted but not
needed for what they were in-
tended should be returned to
the taxpayers coffers.

A week in



Washington


T am just back from an in-
Steresting week in Wash-
ington. As I have said
many times, there is going to
be a health reform bill. There
is intense pressure being put
on Congress by President
Obama, the Obama Adminis-
tration, and the Democratic
leadership on both sides of the
aisle.,
Years ago there
was a show on tel-
evision called
"Let's Make a -
Deal." That show
has migrated from
television to Con-
gress, especially
the Senate. The
Democratic lead-
ership is working
hard trying to re- Lou
solve key issues OTI
such as abortion VOI
and the public op-
tion. Remember
there are a lot of ways to get a
member's vote. It may be
adding a specific item to the
health bill or a new health fa-
cility in the district or state.
There is other major legis-
lation that will come to floor
next year such as the trans-
portation bill. This opens up a
whole bunch of projects that
are easier to promise (and
trace) because they are not re-
lated to health care and are up
nextyear. I think everything is
up for grabs and there is no
deal that is not being consid-
ered.
The remaining questions
are: Who is going to get what?
How much more is it going to
cost the taxpayers? What will
be in the bill? Finally, most
members have stopped talk-
ing about what a great cost
savings this is going to be as it
has been hard, if not impossi-
ble, to explain.
I had the opportunity to ap-
pear on a segment of "The
Washington Journal" on C-
SPAN Friday, Dec. 4.1 enjoyed
the interview with Steve
Scully Sr, executive producer
and political editor, and the
chance to talk about my recent
book (with Professor Aubrey
Jewett of the University of
Central Florida) "Political
Rules of the Road" which in-
cludes 514 different rules sub-
mitted by 172 members of
Congress plus presidents and
vice presidents representing
2,000 years of congressional
experience.
My two rules are:
Don't get in a fight with
someone who buys his ink by
the carload (the press).
Ifyou have to explain you
are in trouble.
Itwasinterestingduringthe
whole week that many mem-
bers were more interested in
the Tiger Woods' story than in
health care. They obviously
badly needed a break I don't

explain that I had no inside in-
formation despite the fact that
Tiger lives in my home area of
central Florida. There is no

rules.
In Florida we have had an
interesting political develop-
ment over the last few months.
Gov. Charlie Crist is not run-
ning for re-election but is run-
ning for the U.S. Senate. A
year ago it was a walk in the
park He was challenged by
the former speaker of the
Florida House, Marco Rubio,
a Cuban-American
from Dade County.
Rubio had prob-
lems getting any
traction and rais-
ing money In con-
trast Gov. Crist was
amassing a large
war chest with
nearly everybody
in the state of any
Frey consequence try-
IER ing to get on board
CES the bandwagon.
However, the
Crist campaign
started unraveling a few
months ago, Gov Crist had the
opportunity to resign and
have his successor appoint
him to the Senate. This would
have been best for the state.
Furthermore, Gov Crist would
have been able to learn the job
and have seniority over any-
body elected in 2010. Instead
he decided not to do that and
began playing a game as to
who the replacement would
be. He picked his campaign
manager. George LeMieux,
who was never elected to any
office and had no Washington
legislative experience.
Gov Crist then got into a
problem over his appearing
with President Obama months
back when the stimulus pack-
age was announced and sup-
porting it He has since
decided he doesn't wantto ap-
pear with President Obama
and really didn't support the
stimulus package. When Pres-
ident Obama came to Florida
the governor's office an-
nounced that he didn't know
that President Obama was
coming and didn't know the
schedule. Unfortunately a se-
ries of e-mails showed differ-
ently
Rubio raised nearly $1 mil-
lion in the last reporting period
and has closed the campaignto
where he is within 15 points.
The numbers are probably
closer as Rubio has a strong
conservative base in the party,
which turns out heavily in a
primary Fbr those of you who
are football fans it may be that
the Crist campaign copied the
game plan of the Florida
Gators against Alabama (Al-
abama won 32 to 13). Unlike
the Gators who have to wait
until next year, the Crist cam-
paign has time to stabilize and
go back on the offensive. How-
ever, this race is not what any-
body in Florida envisioned.

Health care costs
Nice story from the Associated
Press about the supposed health
care bill from the Senate Democ-
rats; however, several issues were
omitted from the AP story:
The fiscal numbers are for 10
years of revenues from taxes, fees
and fines, yet for only six years of
coverage. Ten years of combined
revenues and costs result in a fore-
casted deficit of over $2 trillion.
Probably not a problem for the
deficit spenders like our liberal De-
mocrat senator.
A huge increase in Medicaid par-
ticipants would become the respon-
sibility of each state, yet the states
are cash-strapped now. How will
Florida pay for it?
The bill has a $100 million bribe
for the state of Louisiana so their
senator would vote in favor Why
couldn't our Democrat senator do
this for us?
The bill looks for a half-trillion
dollars in savings from the current.
Medicare program. Does anyone be-
lieve this? If it's true, why can't this
be enacted as a standalone bill and
apply the savings to reducing our
overwhelming deficit?
With the recent two announce-
ments about delaying women's
health screening concerns, will
there be rationing of health care if
the government puts itself in the
health care and insurance business?
Let's hope the working people can
pay for all this now and for many,

Santa suit
Does anybody out there
know where I can rent a
Santa Claus outfit for an or-
ganization for one day or
one night or whatever? If
you do, please let me know.
Great service
I went to the college
today to get my H1N1 flu
shot and they were so well
organized and such decent
girls to help you...At the
college, they helped you to
fill out your form if you had
a question. They helped
you get in line for the shot
when one of the ladies was
available. It was wonderful.
I was in and out of there
with no waiting. I just want
to thank them for their
courteous handling of this.
Thank you.
Cradle to grave
For all those seniors who
are thankful for FDR's So-
cial Security and Medicare:
You are old enough to know
that Social Security was
not meant to provide for
your entire retirement. It
was only to provide supple-
mental funds. Too many
want the government to
take care of them from the
cradle to the grave. That at-
titude is what is destroying
America, along with those
who preach for wealth re-
distribution. There are
those who legitimately
need help, but there are
way too many who are lazy
and want someone else to
take care of them. The gov-
ernment we have is only a
reflection of the kind of
people we are. I heard
someone recently remark
that all who receive food
stamps should have to take
a drug test to receive
funds. I say amen. I am a
senior and desire to make
my own decisions, not the
government, whatever
party is in control.
Odd jobs
Where are they? I read
that there's 10 percent un-
employment rates and peo-
ple are needing work. I
have checked and have
been unable to find any-


thing on people looking for
work. I'm a senior citizen in
Citrus Springs and look for
people to do yard work and
odd jobs for me. Is there a
Web site or some billboard
where people looking for
jobs post what jobs they're
willing to do and how to
contact them? It would be
neat if the Chronicle had
listings in the Classifieds
section to list people doing
odd jobs.
Job numbers
Now I hear the politicians
are trying to con us by
telling us because we lost
fewer jobs in November
than we did in October,
that's good. Well, when you
have fewer jobs to lose,
you're going to lose fewer
jobs.
Thanks for help
I want to thank the Good
Samaritan who found me
lying by the road uncon-
scious with my bicycle near
the intersection of Berry
Street and Wood Lake Av-
enue on Tuesday, Dec. 1,
and then called 911. Your
thoughtfulness and consid-
eration are appreciated
very much by me and my
family.
Home schooling
The subject is home
schooling. Does anyone
know how many students
are in Citrus County? Are
there home schooling
teachers? What are the
costs? Is there a telephone
number in Tallahassee to
guide you? What tests are
required? Is it like a corre-
spondence course? Who
certifies the schoolwork
and tests? How many hours,
are required? A typical
school day is 6 1/2 hours.
Is this a requirement for
home schooling? Is there a
minimum or maximum?
What are the benefits?
What are the risks?
Donation thanks
I just want to say thank
you to all the people who
donated turkeys and every-
thing at the Walmart, and
all the churches some-
body wrote in there already


- and everybody that do-
nated anything, and all the
food banks and people who
gave food and dinners out
Thanksgiving. I thought it
was wonderful and I
wanted to say thank you to
those who passed out
turkeys and my turkey at
Walmart, the free hotdogs
and everything that they
had there. They were won-
derful, accommodating,
and it was an awesome job.
Goes to show how many
wonderful people there are
in Citrus County. Thank you
very much. Great job.
See the correlation
The editor's article on
Florida's education system
was right on. The thing that
I would like to see people
understand and address,
and even write their legisla-
tors about, is that Florida is
the only state that has
mandatory retention in
third grade. Retention and
retaining children is corre-
lated with high dropouts.
I've never understood why
our'administrators or su-
perintendent don't see the
correlation and don't read
or research the data on
this. There is a correlation
between our high dropout
rate countywide and in the
state of Florida and the
mandatory retention.
Chinese junk
I was born in the U.S.A.,
the good-old U.S.A. Where
is the good-old U.S.A.
today? I just bought a dog
bed for my dog made in,
China. From now on I'm
going to look and see
what's made in China. It-is-
a piece of junk. The zipper,
you can't even open the
package because they
don't have a little tag on it
to pull the zipper. What a
bunch of junk. When is the
United States going to
learn that we're used to
good stuff and our men
were proud of it. I am sick
and tired of the crap we're
getting from China, Hon-
duras, all these places.
Come back to the U.S.A.
and start giving us back
our manufacturing.

At this point, the best-case
scenario is to admit that this

Rep. Ron Schultz, we collec-

Additionally, Citrus County re-

True transparencies in all actions of
our publicly owned hospital. Citrus
County citizens have the right to see
the specific details of all hospital ex-
penditures. This will allow more ac-
curate identification of areas causing
financial failure, including wasteful
spending and poor management (i.e.:
money thrown to a problem that has
no sound strategy to succeed). Citrus
Memorial hospital needs a long-term,
comprehensive plan that is well cal-
culated to keep it from failing without
further raising our taxes.
Citrus County should require nomi-
nated and elected executive board
members of CMH who are representa-
tive of the general public.
All hospital board and committee
meetings must follow Sunshine Laws.
Many citizens feel that the manage-
ment of CMH is presently controlled
by special interests. CMH needs
proactive directors who will use their
intellectual potential to put the inter-
ests of the public first Let us be clear
that regardless of whether it is run by
a public or private organization, CMH
must be managed properly It is a pub-
lic asset established for the benefit of
the people. We are beginning to see
some signs of change, but we need to
continue to scrutinize the budget, the
waste and utilization of public tax
money and, in our opinion, the hidden
interests of some directors. The selec-
tion of the foundation directors by the
trustees in 2010 would ensure that
CMH continues progressing not only
during the upcoming year, but for the
years beyond, thus creating a bright
health care future for Citrus County.
We would like to take this opportu-
nity to thank the people who have par-
ticipated in bringing forward these
changes. The nursing and medical
staffs continue to provide treatments
and clinical outcomes which are bet-
ter than state averages and which
compare favorably with all neighbor-
ing hospitals. Thanks to them for giv-
ing us functional insight and for
providing excellent care, in spite of
the challenges they have faced. Spe-
cial thanks to our board of trustees

efforts in bringing these issues to the
forefront Thanks to them, the CMH 6f

In great danger
It's Sunday, Nov. 29, and I'm
reading page B6 Entertainment.
In the article it states that Presi-
dent Obama was never in any
danger. However, unless the
photo was altered, it shows Mrs.
Salahi, one of the dinner crash-
ers, grasping the president's
hand with both of hers. What if
she is carrying a deadly virus on
her skin? We could have a very
sick president out of commission
for a long time, or worse. As in
the past, these no-goodniks have
used the simplest and deadliest
methods to harm us. I hope the
people protecting us had this
scenario in mind.

This is to the person who has
the set of World Book Encyclope-
dias. I'd love to give them a good

This is Nov. 29, Sunday. To the
lady that don't like Citrus County
but can't leave because (her)
husband got transferred here:
I'm not sure where you were
transferred from, but it's much
warmer down here than it is up
North. The children will be less
sick down here. Enjoy the sun-
shine.

Soup shop
It is Sunday, Nov.. 29, and I'm

that sells lentil soup with sausage
or without sausage. It is very
good food. The body shop in Cit-
rus Springs is doing a great job.

Why is the signal for Channel

This is in answer to the person
who wrote in about "Decent

to name three restaurants in Citrus
County that had decent meals.
Well, I have three of them: One of
them's called the Cozy Country

Crystal River, one is Dan's Clam

Ce b ratio o-'iaa -,hBBB

Bonus average
I'm sick and tired of all these
(people) calling in and writing let-
ters complaining about Sheriff
Dawsy and the (bonuses) that he
gave to his people and the car
that he bought for the deputy to
show the children in school. That
works out to about $3.50 per
person for every man, woman
and child in the county. If these
people (who are) all whining
about giving the money back to
the taxpayers need $3.50 that
badly, then they really are in sad
shape. Give it a rest.
Floral City banks
I think it's time they put a Bank
of America in Floral City. They've
got two other banks there. Bank
of America would be a good deal.
They've got two here in Inverness.
Floral City would be very nice.
More meals
This is for the person looking
for three restaurants in Citrus
County: Try Van der Valk's at the
Lakeside Golf Club, Cafe on the
Avenue on Citrus Avenue, Crystal
River, and Enrico's Ristorante on
(U.S.) 41 south of Inverness. You
may need reservations, as others
know of these nice restaurants in
Citrus County.
No more
I was reading your editorial
today on fundraising for CMH,
Citrus Memorial hospital. I look
at it this way: They get a lot of
taxes from me every year. They
don't even take my insurance, so
there's no way they're getting an-
other dime from this taxpayer.
Merry Christmas
Headline: Even Santa knows.
You don't hear Santa saying, "Ho,
ho, ho, happy holidays!" No, he
says, "Ho, ho, ho, merry Christ-
mas everyone!"

CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE


Fleas and festivities


BRIAN LaPETER/Chronicle


SJon Spaulding shops Wednesday at Stokes Flea Market In Crystal River.


Citrus County markets thrive amid


recession, offering food, bargains on'stuff'


CHRIS VAN ORMER
Chronicle


L ate autumn's brisk
mornings bring busi-
ness to the county's
flea markets, as more
residents find the
open-air stalls offer great bar-
gains for Christmas shopping.
"You can spend the whole day
here and find just about every-
thing you want," said Teri
Davis, market manager at
Howard's Flea Market

Howard's started in 1972, with just a few
vendors, and has since grown into a large
network of indoor and outdoor shops offer-
ing everything from a full-cooked breakfast
to antique furniture to fresh produce to
hardware items to clothing. A shopper can
enter at Dixie Dogs for a tasty snack and
later be tempted by many other cute pups,
from Heinz 57s to chiweenies.
Davis has managed the market for 19
years, when it was still owned by the
Howard family that founded it. Since 1994,
Tom and Alice Cushman have owned the
flea market.
"It's a family market," Davis said. "Our
longest vendor is Helen Helke, Who's been
here from the beginning. Everybody knows
her as 'The Rope Lady.' We also have an
Avon lady who's been here 20 years."
Davis said the cooler weather starts the
"season," with vendors returning from the
northern states for the winter.
"The season's just starting up, so we don'
know'how many will be coming back yet,"
Davis said. "Vendors do a circuit. Some-
times, they have to drop out of part of it."
When the vendors return, it's like a fam-
ily-regniqn.
''We have.Christmas dinners," Davis said
"We'have an Easter sunrise service every
year on Easter Sunday. We have an Easter
wagon to take kids to a free Easter egg
Ount, and we serve parents doughnuts and
ce ffee I
*Tdie big family of vendors has a Fourth of
JOly.picnic, too. Yet, Christmas is extra spe
cial, ; .
.We help 2,000-plus Christmas children,"
Davis said. "I call them Christmas chil-
dren. They are the ones who don't have
gifts at Christmas."
Howard's has its own way of raising
funds to help these children.
"You can have your picture taken with
Santa at Santaland," Davis said. "It only
costs $3, and all of the money is taken to
buy-children gifts from the vendors. They


have wish lists. Some of then ask for bed
sheets. Can you imagine hoping to get bed
sheets for Christmas?"
The children are recommended by the
Family Resource Center, which Davis said
Howard's has been helping for 18 or 19
years. '
By looking through the booths, a shopper
can find artistic wares, such as handmade
jewelry, wood crafting and clay sculptures;
and practical needs such as clothing and
electrical appliances,
The vendors are from different back-
grounds. A shopper can try to haggle about
the price, as some dealers expect it and
some don't accept it.
"You'll find more competitive prices here
than at the mall," Davis said. "But don't for-
get that this is these people's livelihoods."
Where haggling might have a better
chance of succeeding is around some of the
booths in rows A, B and K, where yard sale
vendors are assigned.
"People can have
their yard sales here, if
they can't have them in FINDII

Howard's offers an op-
portunity to exercise
the dog, too. Dogs are
allowed with owners.
"We welcome well-behaved animals on
Slashes with owners who clean up after
them," Davis said.
Cathy Johnson, who manages the Inver-
ness Flea Market at the county fairground,
has noticed the new frugality brought on by
the recession.
S "Flea markets are the place to go for
- good shopping bargains," Johnson said.
"This year, what I'm seeing is that people
are really holding onto their money tighter
than before."
Johnson means that literally, because
flea markets deal in cash.
"If we could take credit cards, we might
do more business," Johnson said, reflecting
on how people don't like to see their money
go.
But they shop around and find what is
good about Inverness Flea Market.


"It's a good, old-fashioned flea market,"
Johnson said. "We don't carry Chinese
junk. You'll find plenty of used but not
abused items,"
Getting into the holiday season, vendors
offer many handcrafted items, jewelry and
Christmas decorations.
"And the prices are so reasonable," John-
son said.
Fresh produce, plants and antiques are
regular features.
"One couple sells diabetic socks," John-
son said. "And two vendors carry model
trains."
It's a pet-friendly market for pets on
leashes.
As for food, Johnson said one concession
stand, Jo Mama's, "has the best biscuits
and sausage gravy in 10 counties and is
known from as far away as Steinhatchee."-
Many vendors have worked in this flea
market for 15 years or more. One woman
specializes in antique and vintage kitchen-
ware.'

Some vendors have been trading there for

manager.
The market is a good source of fresh pro-
duce, hardware, antiques, and collectibles.
The manager said the market offers some-
thing for every shopper, the market is clean
and the folks are friendly.
Up the road at Cowboy Junction, the
arrangement has grown more casual. Ven-
dors say they arrive and set up their wares,
and someone representing the owner walks
around and collects the fees. .
A well-known fixture in the county, Cow-
boy Junction once featured music in its
Opry house that now is closed. But the mar-
ket goes on with all kinds of merchandise
for sale, a great deal of fresh produce and
some mobile restaurants to provide snacks.

Hang in

there
Never give up. That's
a quick paraphrase
of a famous quote
from England's late Sir
Winston Churchill, 1874-
1964.
The actual quote, ac-
cording to online resources
from The Churchill Center
'and Museum, London, is:
"Never, never, in nothing
great or small, large or
petty, never give in except
to convictions of honor and
good sense. Never yield to
force; neveryield tothe ap-
parently overwhelming
might of the -enemy."
Churchill said these words
in a speech in 1941 in Lon-
don, to boys at the Harrow
School
What do schoolboys in
London and not giving up
have to do with looking for
ajob inFlorida? Its easyto
give up on a job search, but
harder to continue the
struggle.
I recently asked col-
leagues what encourage-
ment they give to job
candidates. David Knight,
Workforce Connection em-
ploymeit corinstiltant said,
"Persevere, follow up. Do
-whatever you can to make
yourself (resume and cover
letter) jump out at the em-
ployer. With hundreds of
applicants for every job,
you have to stand out to be
noticed."
Karen Dixon-Pulcini,
business development co-
ordinator for Workforce
Connection, said, "It's re-
ally tough out there right
now for a lot of people.
They all need some words
of wisdom to get them
through. I always share my
story and let them know to
keep the faith, remain pos-
itive and never stop net-
working and trying.
Friends and family are
great resources for remain-
ing positive."
"Many people may feel
the jobs that are available
are 'leftover' or the most.
undesirable ones, butthose
are the ones that bring out
integrity the most," said
Jeremy Richards, network
support specialist with
Workforce Connection.
All the encouragement
in the world sometimes
can't help when you are
facing many hardships at
once. Ifyou find yourselfor
someone you know in a
dark place, distressed and
without hope, then you
might consider contacting
mental health profession-
als at The Centers, 3238 S.
Lecanto Highway, or call
726-7155. You can also get
connected and get ques-
tions answered related to
social services and more in
Citrus County by dialing
211, or (727) 2104243 for

During my recent layoff,
many told me a window or
door will close and another
will open in my life..The
right door or window will
open. The key to unlock
them still remains in your
hands as you seek out en-
couragement and define
your career path.

Thanks for helping

Citrus Builders Care

$350-plus raised at show


I I would like to offer a
very heartfelt thank you to
the CCBA Home & Out-
door Show committee for
giving Citrus Builders Care
the opportunity to collect
donations during the 32nd
Annual Home & Outdoor
Show, Oct. 24 and 25 at the
Florida National Guard
Armory in Crystal River.
With your generous sup-
port, we were able to col-
lect more than $350.
By helping us, we can
help many Citrus County
needy families and indi-
viduals with repairs to
their home, not only to
meet essential daily needs,
but to work toward a
brighter future with a safer
environment for them to
live in.


I would also like to ex-
tend a thank you to the
many members of the Cit-
rus County Builders Asso-
ciation who have come out
and worked on our proj-
ects throughout this past
year; it has a made a big
difference.
When we work together,
we can reach far beyond
our goals and because you
cared enough to give of
yourselves, we have
helped to make a differ-
ence this year in our com-
munity.
May you have a joyous
New Year, a merry Christ-
mas and a happy holiday!
