David French rides through the downtown area Thursday after a trip to the bank. Inverness has a Bicycle Master Plan that will make
city thoroughfares friendlier to bicyclists and pedestrians.

Inverness Bicycle Master Plan aims to transform transportation


AMANDA MIMS
Chronicle
T o non-cyclists, the city of In-
verness probably won't look
too much different five
years from now. But through
a cyclist's eyes, changes to
come will be both signifi-
cant and welcome.
When the city's Bicycle Master Plan
comes to fruition, Inverness will be a
place where traveling by car won't be the
only way to get around, but instead will
be just one option to get from one place
to another. City thoroughfares are being
made more bicycle- and pedestrian-
friendly. They're being enhanced to con-
nect key areas of the city so residents


can choose how to get to the grocery
store, park, or government offices.
"We want people to be able to make a
choice of how to get there," said City
Manager and cyclist Frank DiGjovanni,
who initiated the project The project
will enhance quality of life for residents
and boost the city's economic standing,
according to him.
Inverness is building on its ample ac-
cess to the 46-mile Withlacoochee State
Trail, Florida's longest paved rail trail,
and its existing bicycle-friendly features.
"Inverness is unique," DiGiovanni
said. We have a lot of opportunity to build
upon arid that's what we're doing with
these plans," he said. "We're looking at
this to be much more intense and much
more enhanced than other places." !


"I think it's wonderful what's happen-
ing," said Scott Reinhard, who works at
Suncoast Bicycles on the Withlacoochee
State Trail in Inverness. "We're very
happy with the Bicycle Master Plan. It's
not just good for business. It's just great
(to have as) citizens of Citrus County."
DiGiovanni said he's had support from
the local cycling community and others.
"It's really a group effort," he said.
"What excites me is a lot of people got
involved and a lot of people support this
and we're all working toward the future
of Inverness."
The Bicycle Master Plan is divided
into five smaller projects. In order of pri-
ority, they are:

Hospital

executive

responds

to audit
CHRIS VAN ORMER
Chronicle
In what he called an amazing
process, the chief executive officer
of Citrus Memorial Health System
said the hospital's recent audit by
the Auditor General of the State
of Florida showed the necessity
for maintaining documents.
"The thread
that runs
through this is
documentation,"
said Ryan Beaty,
CEO. "We had all
the documents;
we just couldn't
always get our
Ryan Beaty hands on them."
said results of As a 501(c)(3)
audit indicate a charity, the hos-
need for better pital has had fi-
record-keeping nancial audits
by the hospital. every year for at
least the past 20 years, Beaty said
Tuesday at a meeting of the
Chronicle editorial board.
"Those audits were to assure
the community and the board of
directors that the financial state-
ments were correct," Beaty said.
"This is a fish of a different color,
a detailed audit of our internal
business procedures, an audit
against governmental standards."
The hospital had between two
and four auditors present for ,
nine months, Beaty said.
What the audit showed was:
"We need to provide an archive
and keep documentation better
than we have been."
The audit itself had helped the
hospital make corrections.
"We've changed our proce-
dures already and we worked
with them," Beaty said.
In one situation raised in the
audit, Beaty said the hospital was
lacking documents for transcrip-
tion services, but would get
copies from the company that
provided the service.
He said the documents were
available when the auditors first
were present at the hospital, but
the auditors did not ask for them.
When they did ask, the docu-

ments had been dumped
by the hospital's outside
services department when
it moved from the old
school house to its new of-
fices.
The audit mentions the
expenses of the foundation
going on retreats. Beaty
said, "The last retreat was
in 2006. They stopped
when we went into the sun-
shine."
Directors have attended
conferences of health ad-
ministrators to improve
their capabilities.
Meanwhile, the opera-
tion of the hospital has con-
tinued well, he reported.
"In the face of all this,
the hospital has managed
to have an excellent year,"
Beaty said. "Fiscal year
2009 has been the best in
nine years and we continue
to move upward in all our
quality indicators."
In one way, Beaty said,
the audit would bring to-
gether the Citrus County
Hospital Board of Trustees
and the Citrus Memorial
Health Foundation Board
of Directors, which have
been in a dispute for al-
most a year about which
group governs the hospital.
Both sides would work to-
gether to respond to the
preliminary and tentative
findings and recommenda-
tions.
Beaty said the founda-
tion would provide a
breakdown of charity care
costs through better docu-
mentation.
Jerry DeLoach, chief op-
erations officer, said, "We
will function more like a
government entity adher-
ing to state guidelines."
In choosing contract
work, the hospital would
make requests for propos-
als and take sealed bids.
"We've started adopting
these practices already,"
DeLoach said.
Beaty said the gover-
nance issue still separated
the two groups, and more
consideration would be
given to it
David Langer, founda-
tion chairman, said the re-
cent mediation session
between the trustees and
the foundation failed be-
cause the trustees did not
want to compromise.


"They want control of the
hospital," Langer said.
The hospital had been
criticized for expanding
beyond its campus to set up
clinics and laboratories.
"Outpatient services is
the only place with profits
for the hospital," Beaty
said. "The medical commu-
nity thinks we should be
just a four-wall hospital."
He said the hospital's
competition came from
other outpatient facilities,
not other hospitals.
Physicians have said the
hospital has an unfair ad-
vantage when sending its
patients to its own outpa-
tient facilities, but Beaty
argued that the opposite
was the case.
"The physicians have
control over the patients,"
Beaty said.
If a physician was called
into the hospital to consult,
he could advise the patient
to seek future treatment at
the outpatient facility
owned by the physician,
Beaty said.
"A physician can refer a
patient to his own center,"
he said. "That's unfair ad-
vantage."
As for the new medical
center at Sugarmill Woods,
Beaty said it was not built
with ad valorem tax
money.
If CMHS stopped outpa-
tient services, Beaty said,
more tax money would be
required to support it.
The outpatient services in
the county would be pro-
vided by physician/entre-
preneurs.
Beaty acknowledged the
hospital could make better
use of its conflict commit-
tee in cases of conflict of
interest
He also spoke about the
local bill the trustees pre-
sented to the legislators.
Some of it could be shown
to be unconstitutional,
Ryan said.
The foundation has some
fence mending to do with
the physicians, too, Ryan
said.
The audit also raised the
issue of a bonus agreement
for several administrators
not getting proper ap-
proval.
"It did get proper ap-
proval," Langer said. "It
didn't get recorded." ..... -
Beaty said the secretary
was asked to leave the
room because the salaries
were discussed.

John Thrumston elected to


TBARTA Executive Committee


Special to the Chronicle
Citrus County Commissioner John
Thrumston has been elected to the Ex-
ecutive Committee of the Tampa Bay
Area Regional Transportation
Authority (TBARTA).
Thrumston has been the
county's representative on
TBARTA since it was created 1E.
by the Florida Legislature in
2007.
The authority was created to i.
plan and develop a multi- '
modal transportation system Jo
that will connect the seven Thrur
counties of the Tampa Bay re-' county
gion including Citrus, Her- TBA
nando, Hillsborough,
Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas and Sarasota
counties.
Thrumston was elected to fill one of
the five seats on the executive com-
mittee at a meeting this month. He has


been a vigorous proponent of
TBARTA and Citrus County's mem-
bership in it, pointing out to the county
commission how the relationship with
the Florida Department of Trans-
portation (FDOT) District 7
has improved through the con-
nections he has made on
TBARTA.
Thrumston has noted the
advantages, both present and
future, that TBARTAs regional
transportation plan offers the
county. He has helped secure
hn more than $15 million for the
nston county in transportation fund-
Srep to ing in the past few years
RTA. through the relationships
formed as a result of being a
member of TBARTA.
He noted, for instance, the $4.6 mil-
lion in TRIP funding the county re-
cently secured for the County Road
486 project and the almost $1.9 million


for the first phase of widening County
Road 491 north from State Road 44.
The relationships also paid off with
more than $8 million in 10 federal
stimulus funding projects when the
county was one of the first in FDOT
District 7 to secure funding for
repaving projects and get them under
way.
The Withlapopka Causeway repair
project was another result that came
from the improved cooperative work-
ing relationship he has helped the
county' create with FDOT. Finally, the
traffic light coming in January for the
county landfill on S.R. 44 was a direct
result of the connections Thrumston
has made with FDOT officials through
TBARTA.
Thrumston said being on the execu-
tive committee can only further en-
hance Citrus County's seat at the table
in regional transportation planning
and funding.

Special to the Chronicle Thanks to a cell phone collection pro-


CASA has been collecting
cell phones since 2003. Old
cell phones, along with the
charger, can provide a 911
emergency phone to CASA

long as the phone is
charged, victims are able to
contact 911 in an emer-
gency. This program .has
saved lives throughout the
country and in Citrus
County.
Some of the phones that
are donated don't work, are
missing the chargers or
have old batteries that no
longer take a charge.
Thanks to a cell phone col-
lection program, we are
able to send unusable
phones to be used as parts.


gram, we are able to send
unusable phones to be used as parts.


They in turn send us a
small amount for each
phone. Thus, we have a.
small, but continuous, in-
come from this fund raiser.
Because many people
who would like to donate
phones may not want to
travel far because of the
high price of gas, the Citrus
County Chamber of Com-
merce has agreed to be the
drop-off center for cell
phones for CASA at any of


the three chamber loca-
tions:

now carrying on that tra-

happier.
But it can also be hum-
bling. Izzy is our oldest
granddaughter- at 4 and
she took great interest this
week in the fact that my
beard has turned white.
I blamed it on Charlie
Dean, but she said doesn't
know who that is.
She said she wasn't sure
if she liked my beard any-
more until I pointed out

Anxiety,

We walked around
the monastery at
St- Leo to see our
longtime friend sitting on
a bench, meditating.
When he saw us, a look
of bewilderment washed
across his face. We were,
more or less, on time but
factors greater than our
meeting were in play.
We knew ivhen setting
out on our visit that this
wouldn't be like years
past Typically, our friend
spends Thanksgiving with
his sister at the monastery

a day or two with us be-

metropolis he's made his
home.
This year was different
Severe anxiety prevented
him from renting a car. A
bad reaction to prescribed
drugs left him with two
hours sleep in the two
days prior to our visit,
along with a racing pulse
and psychological/physio-
logical turmoil beyond
our comprehension.
Moments after he stood
up from the bench, he
sought to explain his con-
dition. Among his first
words: "If I weren't so
afraid, I'd kill myself."
Our friend, a former
coworker, has found a

Akey juncture during

A day later, Cit- health
rus County's leg-
islative delegation voted 2-1
P to accept proposed legisla-
tion by the board of trustees'
: attorney that would essen-
tially strip the foundation of
' its power in overseeing hos-
pital operations.
More conspicuous is what
has been missing from the
discussions between the two
boards: providing good
health care in a fiscally re-
sponsible manner.
The diversion away from
the true mandate of the pub-
lic hospital is a detriment to
the taxpaying public and the
patients the facility serves.
As the administrative staff
and the hospital employees
are distracted and pulled
aside from their mission of
providing medical services
to the community by the con-
stant bickering between the
two boards over control and
.-....governance of the hospital, it
is Joe Citizen who suffers
from their dalliances.
We do not feel that this
should be a matter of one
board wresting control from

Yes, the foundation board
should meet in the Sunshine.
In the past, some things have

purview of the public and
that isknever a good thing.
Yes, it does seem some
members of the board of
trustees have a political
agenda of their own. Serving
one's own personal agenda


cannot stand unchecked.
We don't care so much
about how many are on the
board, or how it got to this
point just that it be an
elected board.
An elected board ensures
that all discussions of con-
tracts awarded, monies
spent and decisions that af-
fect the tax-supported public
hospital can be done with
the public's full knowledge.
If a board member or the
board as a whole makes de-
cisions contrary to the pub-
lic's best

ernor can never
fully vet the credentials,
character and vision of a
candidate as the process of
an election campaign will.
An election is a more trans-
parent process, as each can-
didate will need to publicly
disclose conflicts of interest,
financial relationships and
personal relationships that
may affect their decision-
making on the board. Each
candidate must also demon-
strate their knowledge of is-
sues by publicly answering
questions about the gover-
nance of the hospital while
on the campaign trail.
As the two boards continue
to mix it up over issues unre-
lated to health care, the pub-
lic suffers. It suffers because
less attention is being paid to
providing the best health
care for the community. It
suffers because money is
being spent on two, three
and four sets of lawyers in-
stead of health care. It suf-
fers because the public
battle affects the bond rating
of the hospital, which ulti-
mately means taxpayers may
have to make up the differ-
ence if investment dollars
drop.
With an elected board, the
public would not stand for
such actions and board mem-
bers would be held account-
able for their decisions.
It is time the boards put
aside their troubles and con-
centrate on their mission of
providing good health care
through a financially stable
hospital.


- United Way needs your help
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 ajheck to: United Way of Citrus County, c/o Citrus County Chronicle,

SLETTERS to the Editor


Funding fire
The Citrus County Commis-
sion is wrestling with how to
fund the expanding needs of the
country fire service. In previous
letters I stated that the fire serv-
ice is going to be one of the
largest future cost increases for
the county to deal with. Changes
Sin training requirement stan-
dards and poor call-out reim-
bursements for volunteers have
reduced the pool of semi-free
firefighters. The county's re-
sponse to these changes is to in-
crease the number of full-time
staff. Costs for full-time firefight-
ers are often on par with full-
time police officers. The county
is now looking for ways to cover
these costs again through new
taxes, as usual. They may call
these options MSTUs or MSBUs,
but the bottom line is they are an
additional expense imposed on
the citizens of this county.
Personally I have no problem
paying for services if warranted.
However, the county claims it
needs approximately an addi-
tional $3 million for the fire serv-
ice this year. Our Sheriff had $1
million left in his budget, of which
he spent over $700,000 for unbud-
geted items. How much excess
might be in the other elected offi-
cials' budgets? Is it possible for
the commission to look more
closely at the elected officials'
budgets in the upcoming year to
cover these added costs in fire
service? Should elected officials
be allowed to spend funds in their
budgets for things not specifically
authorized during the county
budget process without commis-
sion approval? Is the county com-
mission willing to impose
zero-/performance-based budget
processes on all elected officials?

I realize there are friendships
and strong bonds between
elected officials, but if the com-
missioners are truly interested
in efficient government and
maximizing the use of taxpayers'
dollars, then these friendships
must not interfere with sound
decisions. Elected officials must
be held to the same standards as
other county departments.
Additionally, I would hope that
the Chronicle supports the com-
missioners in their pursuit of
every existing tax dollar to cover
costs before looking for other
revenue sources.

Bad decisions
Obama has been in office for
almost 10 months now and has by
far not lived up to his advertis-
ing. He has failed in his promise
of transparency. He has failed to
bring about a realistic and af-
fordable health reform bill.
He has waffled in his interna-
tional policy, tending to make
some of our allies fearful of us
abandoning them, and embold-
ening our enemies.
President Obama has attempted
to create a parallel government
answerable to more than 30
"czars" not constitutionally pro-
vided for, but paid for by taxpay-
ers' funds. Why have cabinet
heads? Change? Yes, but not the
change we expected or wanted.
Wait until the American public
wises up to the cap-and-trade
bill now quietly making its way
through the Senate. The cost in
jobs, greatly increased utility
costs, and loss of American sov-
ereignty will be staggering, not
to mention the increased pollu-
tion worldwide by second- and
third-world nations, who have
little or no environmental con-
trols, operating their factories
and foundries and mills full
blast to produce the goods once
made by the estimated 3 million
Americans who will lose their
jobs under this ill-advised treaty
And the beat goes on, no, a
steady drum roll of catastrophic
decisions being made for us and
our grandchildren by an admin-
istration woefully out of touch
with reality, and totally unaware
of what virtues made this nation
great, going to crawl quietly
away in the darkness after only a
couple of hundred years?

Beef jerky and the Ghost of Christmas Past


In Charles Dickens' "A
Christmas Carol,"
Ebenezer Scrooge was
taken for rides by the ghosts
of Christmases past, present
and future. Old Eb had quite
a scare, but everything
turned out all right for him
in the end.
If you've read the title for
this column, "Beefjerky and
the Ghost of Christmas
Past," you might be wonder-
ing, "What has beefjerky got
to do with Christmas?"
A few days prior to
Christmas, while Cheryl
and I were enjoying time
together in our pool, she
asked if I'd remembered to


get the beef jerky.
I still haven't explained,
have I?
When our children were
small, Cheryl and I stuffed
Christmas. stockings for
them with candy and small
toys; and, as I'm sure many
of you can appreciate, there
were a few times when the
stockings were a major part
of what we were able to give
them. At Christmastime 25
years or so ago, times were
good. An abundance of gifts
were wrapped and under
the tree, but we'd been so
busy with the big items,
we'd forgotten the stockings.
It was 10 p.m. on Christmas


Eve when I remembered gone from being Santa
and mentioned it to Cheryl Claus to being the Grinch

In a matter of seconds I'd thing and everything I


thought might work, includ-
ing penny candy, bub-
blegum, balloons, bags of
peanuts and packages of
beef jerky. Cheryl and I pre-
pared the stockings and had
'em properly in place the
next morning. The kids
were thrilled and most es-
pecially impressed with the
beef jerky.
I've never, ever again
even considered skipping
stockings. Nowadays, with
all of our children, children-
in-law and grandchildren,
we have 15 of'em to fill with
brightly wrapped choco-
lates, mints, small gifts and
gag gifts, but the one thing


which has been a must ever
since that Christmas those
many years ago is beefjerky.
And I wasn't taking any
chances this year.
I immediately jumped out
of the pool, scampered drip-
ping wet into the house and
wrote "buy jerky" on my list
of things to do before Christ-
mas. I didn't want a visit
from Scrooge's ghosts no
beef jerky and things might
not have ended as well for
me as they did for him!

Barriers on Croft
As a shop owner myself,
my heart goes out to the
shop owners on and adja-
cent to Croft Avenue who
are trying to stay afloat in
this very depressed mar-
ketplace. The county fool-,
ishly placed a barrier
along Croft Avenue so po-
tential customers driving
on the west side of the
road can't turn into or
leave these businesses,
thereby cutting the busi-
nesses' potential income
.stream in half.
Jim Hunter's "It doesn't
take a genius" comment
attempting to justify the
barriers' placement just
doesn't make much sense.
If you analyze the num-
ber of accidents over the
five-year period from
2004 to 2008, the eight
crashes on Thomas Street
average out to 1.6 acci-
dents per year. The 13
crashes on Dawson Drive
average out to 2.6 acci-
dents per year. While the
62 accidents at the inter-
section of Croft Road &
Route 44 average out to
be about one accident
per month, the barrier
situated on Croft won't af-
fect those at all. I would


venture to say that any
busy intersection within
the county would most
likely have at least 1.6 or
2.6 accidents per year. So
all the county has really
accomplished here is to
make it much harder for
these businesses to sur-
vive. It doesn't take a ge-
nius to figure that out.

Common offense
One should not be sur-
prised at the "pettiness"
shown by certain individ-
uals that make up the
hospital Board of
Trustees.
Pettiness has become
routine in today's society.
It happens in almost
every organization, in-
cluding our local
churches. "Pettiness" has
caused people to not only
leave our local churches,
it has caused some local
churches to split. I am
not at all surprised by
anyone who resorts to
using pettiness as a "tac-
tical weapon."

hotel along our travel route. Route 1 in Bombay


Anyway, after spending 61
minutes on the Droid tele-
phone looking for a hotel,
this human being found us a
room for only $85 a night It
didn't sound like a great
deal, but what the heck, we
were tired.
He made sure to explain
that this was a non-refund-
able reservation and our
$85 would never be seen
again if we agreed.
My wife, who is a much
nicer person than I, recog-
nized it was probably this
Bombay salesperson's very
first sale of a hotel room and
she wanted to make it a suc-
cess for him.
I just wanted to go to sleep.
Somewhere in here I for-
got to mention this hap-
pened to be our wedding
anniversary and things
were not turning out as I
had imagined. 1 .
The main problem was
that after 61 minutes of try-
ing to find a hotel room, I


had actually arrived in the
driveway of the hotel in
question.
And we were still not fin-
ished with the reservation
process.
"This hotel room comes
with a deluxe iron and iron-
ing board," the Bombay
sales said as he went into
the 62nd minute of the con-
versation.
"Please just hang up," I
begged my wife. "I can just
walk inside and get a room."
"This is important to
him," my caring wife said as
she brushed me off.
"And the room has an im-
pressive 24-inch color tele-
vision set," said the travel
booker.
"Please," I asked.
"And it comes with a com-
plete bathroom and
shower," said the salesman.
"Isn't that special," I
whined. "Hangup the phone."
By now I was standing at
the check-in counter of the


hotel and my wife was be-
hind me with her Droid
completing the purchase.
"We will save money," she
said. "Just be patient"
The sleepy hotel clerk
looked on in astonishment
and used her finely honed
customer service skills to
tell us to take it outside.
After that introduction to
this amazing two star hotel,
I was ready to sleep in the car
The sale was finally com-
plete and I went back inside
to get the keys. The friendly
hotel clerk checked her
computer .and calmly told
me I had no reservation.
"But we just finished the
reservation," I told her.
"You heard us talking to our
new friends in Bombay."
After she checked her
computer again she gave me
an evil grin and said: "Your
reservation is probably lost
in cyberspace."
I was ready to sleep at a
county park at this point,


but I would have lost my $85.
We were advised to sit
around and wait to see if
our reservation might find
its way to America some-
time before the sun rose in
the morning.
As I waited, another cou-
ple checked into the hotel
and was told the rate for the
evening was $85.
So much for saving lots of
money on the internet
Within a half-hour, our
reservations apparently
bumped off of the orbiting
space shuttle and found their
way to the hotel. We were
permitted to spend a quality
night in a two star hotel in
the middle of nowhere..
I did not use the deluxe
iron or ironing board.

SHADES
Continued from Page C1

a researcher and investiga-
tive journalist He's smart,
he's driven, he's physically
strong, makes a good living
and he looks like the kind of
guy a mom would want her'
daughter to date.
Despite it all, he's had
struggles through the years.
His dad died before we be-
came friends, 18 years ago
or so. His mom's death
about 16 years ago hit him
hard. He traces the onset of
his anxiety to that loss, al-
though that may have just
tipped the scales.
While he'd go on the
wagon from New Year's Day
to St Patrick's Day, his affin-
ity for hard liquor was sig-
nificant. Beer didn't faze
him, he's said.
Sobriety, for several years,
now hasn't resolved his anx-
iety issues. A crease runs
down one side of his face
from the anguish wrought
by mental illness.

While visiting at the
monastery, we talked for a
few hours. Plans initially
were to grab lunch, then to
see if he wanted to ride
home with us to watch the
Florida-Florida State game.
We quickly realized that
even going to town to get
lunch might not be a possi-
bility, although ultimately it
worked out
The time we spent talking
was meaningful and an op-
portunity for our friend to
open up. He said that was
helpful. Conversation wasn't
entirely about his despair;
we talked about the projects
he's taken on at work and
learned a great deal about
his areas of expertise.
Nearly five hours into our
visit, we exchanged hugs
and as we drove off, we
watched as he shuffled to-
ward the monastery. It was-
n't the stride of a strong,
confident man. His steps
were pensive and reflective
of a man who's burdened
with an affliction beyond his
control.


With no reply,
e-mails and calls
were again placed
and then
again and again.
Fearing the worst,
worry became
all-consuming.

For several days, his ini-
tial words to us lingered.
After not hearing from him,
e-mails and calls were placed
to his home and office.
With no reply, e-mails and
calls were again placed -
and then again and again.
Fearing the worst, worry be-
came all-consuming.
After several attempts, fi-
nally a call placed to his
home was answered but
not by him. It was his sister
-yup, his sister the sister-
who brought us up to date.
In a bout of uncharted
anxiety, our friend checked
himself into a hospital and,
while there, he had himself
voluntarily committed to a
psychiatric facility.
After several attempts, a
call placed to the psych ward
went through and moments
later, the, voice of an old
friend came on the line. The
conversation was good and
there was a tone of hope.

Our friend's treatments
are continuing on an inten-
sive outpatient basis and,
fortunately, his employer -
who has experienced the
ravages of bipolar disorder in
his family is supportive.
We're corresponding reg-
ularly again and as of now,
his concern is that the best
that may come of the treat-
ment is an ability to cope
with severe anxiety. If he's
able to cope and function
and stay even one step away
from the torture we wit-
nessed, there's hope. And
this year hope may be.the
best gift we could desire.

Cause for concern
Totally unbelievable. What in the
world is going on with this sheriff's
department of Citrus County? I've
called about this before and nobody
put it in, for some reason. But they
are dumb enough to take a prisoner,
unhandcuffed, and let him escape.
We have got so much theft and so
much going wrong in this county.
And I'm talking about me, myself,
and my family and friends, have all
been victims here lately. Please let
.,. somebody wake up.


Police procedures


S..... In the Chronicle today, I see where
S ... a person escaped from a detective
from Citrus County. Maybe instead of
... paying out $400,000 in bonuses, you
should train your people for proper
police procedures, Sheriff Dawsy.
............ When I was in the Marine Corps, we
.... did bridge chasing time, escorting
prisoners across country locally on
work parties. And if a person es-
caped, we did their time in the brig
until they were captured. How about
...... that? Maybe you should do that with
,=.-q eb- your people, or train them properly.


Always cuff them
I just read in the newspaper how a
deputy who was afraid for the poor
inmate's arm (which) was possibly
injured didn't handcuff him and
placed him in the back of the police
car at which time the inmate es-
caped. In all my years on NYPD I
never ever didn't handcuff a pris-
oner. I transported many prisoners
who were even shot and I had them
handcuffed bringing them to the
emergency room.
Inexcusable
I'm calling Sound Off in reference
to today's article where the detective
had the inmate escape from the
back of his vehicle. Total negligence
on that detective's behalf. I am a re-
tired sergeant, Department of Cor-
rections. Even though an inmate
does have a cast on his arm, he
could still be restrained with a leg
iron wrapped around that and he
should have had a waist chain on
and his other hand could have been
handcuffed to the waist chain. That
is inexcusable to have an inmate in a
vehicle being transported unsecured.

Personal

branding
Personal branding is
how we market our-
selves. In simple
terms, it's how we commu-
nicate to future employers
who we are.
This type of branding
does not require a brand-
ing iron like a rancher
uses on cattle. The brand-
ing, instead, is what peo-
ple think about your work,
you as a person and what
you deliver in terms of tal-
ents.
One of the leaders in
the personal -branding
area is Dan Schawbel, au-
thor of "Me 2.0: Building a
Powerful Brand to
Achieve Career Success."
Schawbel suggests you
find out what your per-
sonal brand is first (See
one of his blogs to learn
more at http://mashable
.com/2009/02/05/personal-
branding-10.)
A way to start figuring
out your brand is to ask
people you know to list 10
things about you. If you
believe their suggestions
are true, then you have es-
tablished your personal
branding. One of my
friends did this in an in-
formal setting over coffee
with friends willing to be
honest about what they
think of her and her work.
E-mail your friends, fam-
ily or professional ac-
quaintances to give you
top 10 qualities. Be pre-
pared they might give
you a few negative com-
ments, but that only
means you have opportu-
nities for improvement
After you have figured
out your brand, then you
must develop it Many of
the tools to do this you
might already have access
to on the Web. Online so-
cial networks are also part
of the branding toolkit
Use Facebook or Twitter
for micro-blogging short
messages, or go to a stan-
dard blog; start on
www.blogger.com or
www.wordpress.com at no
cost. You might consider
creating a Web site to pro-
mote your personal brand.
Caution should be used
for online personal brand-
ing. Don't include photos
of your latest out-of-
control party, as that will
become your personal
brand; many employers
perform online searches
of prospective employees.
Hubert Rampersad, an-
other leader in the per-
sonal branding area,
states on 'his We bsite,
www.brandchannel.com,
"Your personal brand
should be authentic." Who
you really are must equal
what people think you
are. If you project yourself
as the "honest-Abe" type
and you are being caught
in your lies, the word will
get out
Years ago, a business-
woman told me your per-.
sonal life needs to be as
clean as your business
life, if not, it will catch up
with you. This was pre-
personal .branding, but
this thinking applies to
today's marketplace.
I found the site at
www.visualcv.com a great
free source to post a re-
sume online. Here is my
sample, not a resume, to
give you an idea of what
you can do at www.visu-
alcv.com/jannetwalsh. You
can give prospective em-
ployers your personal on-
line resume link when you
are e-mailing or inquiring
about jobs.

SCORE to present second Small Business Institute for Citrus


Special to the Chronicle


The Citrus County Chapter of SCORE, in
conjunction with Central Florida Commu-
nity College, will offer this spring a Small
Business Institute for new and existing busi-
nesses in Citrus County.
The institute comprises a series of busi-


ness-related segments taught over 11 weeks,
starting Jan. 28. The topics covered are de-
signed to aid new and existing small busi-
nesses in a "downturn" economy by focusing
on various components of their business
plan. Successful completion of the program
will result in the production of a plan suit-
able for presenting to potential investors.


Those in attendance for the entire 11-
week program will be awarded a certificate
of completion, entitling each participant to
receive a $100 coupon from the Citrus
County Chronicle for future advertising.
Starting Jan. 28, the sessions will meet
from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday in Bhilding L-4,
Room 103 on the Lecanto Campus of CFCC.


There is a fee of $10 per session. Those
who sign up for the entire 11-week program
will receive a discounted price of $75.
For more information, contact Jeremy
Moyes of SCORE at (352) 249-1236, or to
register, contact Amy Holaday at (352) 249-
1210 at CFCC's Department of Continuing
Education.

Ron A. Rhoades is
panelist for CFP Board
Ron A. Rhoades, J.D., CFP, was a
panelist at the Certified Financial Plan-
ner Board's annual firm meeting on
Dec. 4. Rhoades participated in "Un-
derstanding the Fiduciary Duty of Fi-
nancial Advisers," a panel discussion
which gave insights on the current de-
bate regarding applying the fiduciary
standard of care to all investment ad-
visers and financial planning profes-
sionals. ,
Rhoades is a longtime advocate for
the application of fiduciary duties to all
providers of investment advice. He
currently serves as a privatewealth

ties, published an article on hospital

volunteer Liz Stacklin and her success
in the industry.
Stacklin has volunteered as the Gift
Shop's buyer for 11 years, stocking
the shelves with traditional trinkets and
modem wares. The magazine was
most impressed with her collection of
gift cards. "Liz Stacklin ... not only dis-
plays her extensive greeting card sec-
tion of over 200 styles in well-lighted
wall rack slots, but also shows selec-
tive ones on a sales card placed in
front of the shop door."
The article concluded that greeting
cards of every type appear to be unaf-
fected by the current consumers' love
of hii-tech communication, at least in
the hospital gift-shop setting. Liz noted
that greeting card sales remain a sta-
ple in her inventory mix, while sta-
tionery, once important, has now
dwindled considerably in importance.
The Gift Shop at Seven Rivers Re-
gional is funded and operated by the
Volunteer Services League. Proceeds
from sales support the Seven Rivers
Medical and Education Foundation,
Ahich provides scholarships to stu-
dents pursing a career in health care.

Small steps help with


New Year's resolutions.


With only a few days left in 2009, we
look to the New Year. Perhaps
after reviewing the past year, we
set goals to achieve. Instead of wishing for
health and wealth in 2010, follow these
simple steps:
Set realistic goals. gk,:
Identify small steps. P
Identify obstacles and how -' i
to overcome them.
Set your mind to it and take
action
Many do not achieve New
Year's resolutions because they
aren't attainable and we fail to
break them into smaller steps. Monica
We become overwhelmed es-
sentially before we get started. CONS
Remember that doing some- SCIE
thing is better than nothing, and
"anything you do to improve
your health and/or accumulate wealth is a
step in the right direction."
This small-step approach is so powerful
that the U.S. Health and Human Services
department has designed an interactive
Web site (www.smallstep.gov) to encourage
all Americans to make small dietary and
activity changes to improve their health.


p
i


Health and wealth are connected, because
both are important for living a happy and
successful life, and they can be achieved
one step at a time. For example, to lose ten
pounds in a year, reduce calories con-
sumed by 100 calories per day.
Some of the foods/beverages
with 100 calories to consider
eliminating: One tablespoon of
mayonnaise, a tablespoon of
butter or margarine, 2 average
size cookies, an 8 oz. cola bev-
erage, 1.5 tablespoons of regu-
lar salad dressing, etc.
Other strategies from Rutgers
New Jersey Cooperative Exten-
Bonsett sion's "Small Steps to Health
UMER and Wealth" program include:
NCE E Think of calories and
spending in terms of labor. How
many hours of exercise does it
take to Wdrk off this extra food or drink?
For finances, how many hours do I have to
work to buy this item I want? (Use after-
tax dollars for this calculation.)
Say "no" to super-sizing. This works
for food and finances as we say "no" to
meal deals and to "buy three and save" of-

Hand-painted vase is unusual; a history of the 'Turtle Club'


Dear John: These are pictures of 2
vases my grandfather found in
an abandoned farmhouse in
Kingsbury, Indiana, at the time of World
War II. Two antique dealers
thought they could be worth
$50 each about three years
ago. The white one is thought
to be a McCoy pattern vase
about 2 feet tall. There are no
marks anywhere.
The oriental vase is about
2 feet tall. It is very pretty. On
the bottom it says "hand
painted," and has a mark that John S
looks like a flower. Any
thoughts you have about SIKOf
them would be appreciated. AT
I have given the vases to our
sons, one in Indiana, and one
in Connecticut I want them to be in my
family. S.Z, Inverness
Dear S.Z.: I do not recognize the
white vase. The other vase is Japanese,
completely hand painted, and is close
to, if not more than 100 years old. The
word that you cannot make out on the
bottom of the vase is Nippon, the word
for Japan that was used for export from


1

the 1890s until 1921, when it was
dropped and replaced with Japan. The
overall quality is commercial grade, al-
though the 2-foot height is unusual,
making it rather rare within
the Nippon category. Poten-
tial dollar value is $300 to
-' $600.
Dear John: When your
; caller asked about the "Tur-
tle Club" card he found and.
A you came up with a blank, I
remembered that you were
never part of the military,
particularly in the aviation
ikorski field, and thus I reached for
SKI'S the phone! Luckily for the
Tic guy who rather craftily re-
lieved your puzzlement, the
line was busy, so I did not get
a chance to bring you up to date.
I was inducted into the Ancient Order
of Turtles one whisky-sodden afternoon
by an air traffic controller in an Ober-
lin, Ohio, bar and restaurant in 1963. It
did cost me a few bucks for not knowing
some of the answers to the test ques-
tions. I've still got my signed card some-
where in my collection of stuff that the


relatives will wonder, just as your in-
quirer did, "what was this thing for?"
when I pass on to the "Final Reward
Stage" in the Game Of Life..
A short summary of the origin, reason
and rules follows: "The Ancient and
Honorable Order of Turtles," "World-
wide Fraternity of Turtles," "Interna-
tional Turtles Association," "Turtle
Club," or similar titles started as an in-
formal "drinking club" between World
War II pilots, self-described as "an hon-
orable drinking fraternity composed of
ladies and gentlemen of the highest
morals and good character, who are
never vulgar."
To gain admission, one must answer
four from a list of about twenty-five
qualifying questions. Each question
suggests a vulgar, lewd, or salacious an-
See ATTIC/Page E10
This hand-painted vase was made in
Japan and is roughly 100 years old. Al-
though it's likely a commercial-grade,
mass-produced item, the size is unusual
for pieces of this type. It might sell for
$300 to $600.

hand-weed or use a selec-
tive. pre-emergent herbicide
that will kill only sprouting


seeds, not the green and
growing desirable plant.
Sprinkle the pre-emergent
over the entire bed after
planting well-rooted liners
or plants from 6 inch diame-
ter pots. Use a watering
wand to gently flush any
chemical off leaves and onto
the soil, where it will deter
seedlings for up to 3 months.

before the soil temperature
reaches 65 degrees when
the spring crop of weeds


starts to germinate.
The small, opposite leaves
are stiff and waxy to resist
losing moisture. They are a
deeper, more lustrous green
in shade but grow equally
well in full sun. Some se-
lected varieties have oval
leaves in solid green, while
others may be variegated,
tri-colored or have long,
lance-shaped leaves. Asiatic
jasmine "minima" is a good,


drought-tolerant ground
cover to replace some of the
lawn grass.
