Crystal River celebrates sea cow


Festival promotes

manatee mania
CRISTY LOFTIS

Chronicle
With winter setting in across the
United States, Citrus County gets a
variety of visitors seeking warnner
weather; specifically manatees.
In honor of their arrival in Citrus
County, people flocked to downtown
Crystal River Saturday for-the 18th
annual Florida Manatee Festival.
Suzanne Clemente, event coordi-
nator for the Citrus County Chamber
of Commerce, was thankful for the
warm weather that brought an esti-
mated 10,000 people on Saturday
wearing tank tops, shorts and san-
dals.
"It's great because the weather last
year was so lousy," Clemente said.
Beverly Hills resident Larissa
Nichols took advantage of the festi-
val's boat rides last year and remem-
bered dipping her hand in the water
because it felt warmer than t he air.
"It's a nice day today," Nichols
Ya-id. "Last year it was so cold."
She, her husband, Mark, and his
sister Johnette Whitaker and hus-
band, Patrick, searched for manatees
Saturday while touring the bay with
Capt. Dick Yant of Nature Coast
Charters.
"Last year we saw a whole bunch."
Johnette Whitaker said.
This year, they saw about five man-
atees that kept their distance from
tourists by staying well within the
manatee sanctuary signs.
"The place is just packed with peo-
ple," Yant said. "I don't blame the
manatees for leaving."
This is Yant's third year of volun-
teering his boat and time to take peo-
ple out on Kings Bay to see manatees
at the festival. He and seven other
boaters volunteered to take groups.
Manatee counts in Citrus County
were at a record high in December
when federal biologists counted 430
manatees while conducting an aerial
survey Last year, counts were esti-
mated at 393.
One of the festival's aims is to help
educate people about manatees,
which are listed as an endangered
species.
"The festival was started to help

'Manatee Magic' will begin cultural effort


JIM HUNTER

Chronicle
If Crystal River is indeed the
manatee capital of the state, then
next year's ever-popular Manatee
Festival is going to have a new
. dimension that will put the title
crown on Crystal River's head.
It will be a dimension that will


create a visible legacy and be a
draw for the local manatee industry,
and, organizers hope, create an
enduring effort of promoting the
cultural arts in Citrus County.
If all goes as planned, by next
year the big, alluring, gentle mana-
tee will go "magic" on the Nature
Coast
Some Citrus County organizers
are planning to make "Manatee


Magic" what Ocala made "Horse
Fever."
In Ocala, the Marion Cultural
Alliance produced 50 full-sized,
artistically painted horses that
wowed the public and raised a lot of
money for cultural activities.
Today, visitors still trek around
Ocala to get a look at the horses.

For professional baseball pitcher

walks aren't usually a good thing.
But Saturday in Inverness, he faced
what might be one of the most impor-

almost 300 walkers for

BH vet receives French medal

George Jones had barely fin-
ished high school when he
found himself on a landing
ship headed for the beach on
D-Day, June 6,1944.
"We were all gung-ho in
those days," Jones said of his.
decision to join the military at
age 17.
He joined the Navy while
still in high school just six
months before that fateful day
during World War II.
Jones, of Beverly Hills, was
with the first wave of
Americans on Omaha Beach,
France,
"The fire of German
machineguns and artillery
from the bluffs above were ter-
rible," Jones said. "Our craft
was raked from bow to stern
with enemy fire."
Now, 60 years later, France is
honoring veterans who fought
during the D-Day invasion,


"Be ensured that the memo-
ry of all veterans will never be
forgotten and they will occupy
a place of honor," Admiral
Brac de La Perriere, of France,
wrote to Jones.
Veterans were invited to
France to receive medals for
their service in June, but Jones
was scheduled for knee sur--
gery and could not attend.
Instead officials organized a
special ceremony for Jones to
receive his medal on
International Armistice Day,
Nov. 14, in Miami.
"It was a little emotional,"
Jones said of the event.
Jones said his experiences
during his two-year military
service changed him, and are a
time of his life he will never
forget,
He said he can't help but
think about today's generation
of military men and women.
"I have compassion for
them," Jones said, "knowing
what they're g r-lnii through,"

the passenger-side window
and told the man he should
slow down.
The man said he got out of
his car and the three men
kicked and punched him.
A nearby resident heard
noises and came out of his
house to see what was going
on.
When he did, the resident
said the men stopped and the
man drove away.
Another resident called 911
to report the incident she
had been watching from a win-
dow inside her house.
When deputies arrived, the
man was driving back to the
scene and said he had gone
home to get a weapon.
Blair, Norris and Spearing's
bond is set at $500 each.

She had just aboutE

for a surgical-technician pro-

"She was the most deter-
mined, hardworking person I
ever met," Lisa said. "She
always wanted something bet-
ter. To be better, to work hard-
er, to do more. She wasn't satis-
fied with mediocre."
Not that anything came easy
to her. Determination drove
her to do whatever it took to
make things happen. When she
hleeded money for school,
whatever she couldn't get from
grants and student loans, she
worked for. Once she even put
an ad in the paper asking for
tuition help, but the only per-
son who replied had dubious
intentions. Still, you couldn't
fault her for trying; Sara Jo
wouldn't settle for anything
less than 100 percent effort.
She was like that in her per-
sonal life, too. If Sara Jo was
your friend, she was your
friend wholeheartedly. When
Lisa went into labor with her
daughter, Skyla, Sara Jo was

and the last one to leave. She

She loved having fun. At

everyone was sitting at a picnic

Sara fell over backward and

where they were constantly
trying to get one over on each
bother," her' aunt Marie
Cardinali recalled. "She was
always playing jokes. She was
just so full of life, so happy all
the time."
At 13, Sara Jo caught the bou-
quet at Aunt Marie's wedding.
As usual, she thought she was
so cool until someone told
her that the guy who caught the
garter had to put it on her leg.
Her face turned beet red. She
wanted a do-over. She was the
one who got "got" that time.
Sara Jo Williams loved foot-
ball Dallas Cowboys and
Florida State Seminoles. She
was a drum -major in high
school and practiced twirling
flags with Aunt Marie, who was
only seven years her senior. At
16 Sara Jo and Lisa got their
first jobs at McDonald's in
Homosassa. She attended
school in Lecanto.
She was petite. She was mar-
ried briefly to Rob Williams,
but it didn't work out. -She
missed her father, who had
died shortly after she graduat-
ed from high school. She had
huge dreams.
She loved children. She
loved her friends. She loved
boating with Brandon.
When she found Brandon,
she found her equal in com-
passion and fun, everybody
said so.'
"They both had hearts of
gold," Lisa said. "Whatever you
needed, all you had to do was
ask They were two of the hap-
piest people, and the life of the

them because they were fun
and they made life look fun."
Lisa said most of all Sara Jo
taught her what compassion
looked like, just by the way she
lived.
"She didn't care wvho you
were, what you. wore, how
much money you had," Lisa
said. "She loved people, for
who they were as people."


MAGIC
Continued from Page 1A

Horse Fever followed simi-
lar events in other cities
around the nation that have
used artistically rendered fig-
ures, such as cows in Chicago,
which are thematic to their
locales, to showcase their
charm and activities for visi-
tors.
In addition to raising money
when pieces,are auctioned, the
events have produced some
stunning original art and
numerous opportunities for
residual income for groups
such as the cultural alliance
for its activities. Coffee table
books, miniatures, calendars,
coffee mugs and all kinds of
spin-offs have generated con-
tinuing income for the groups.
Former Crystal River Mayor
Curtis Rich and some others
have been working quietly for
the past year and a half to
organize an effort that will
result in artistic manatees
being placed all around the
Citrus County Nature Coast.
The plan is to begin with 32
roughly 40-inch Fiberglas man-
atees that businesses and indi-
viduals will be invited to spon-
sor for juried artists to paint.
The artists will submit their
qualifications and proposed
designs to a, jury that will pick
the artists to adorn the mana-
tees.
The manatees will be dis-
played and eventually be auc-
tioned to the highest bidders,
who will then put them on dis-
play
Rich said 32 manatees is
original plan, but it could be
more, "if the enthusiasm
boils."
He said the new nonprofit
group sponsoring Manatee
Magic is named the Nature
Coast Cultural Alliance, and it
- will soon be making a formal
announcement about the event
and its plans. He said the ini-
tial plan is to coincide the
.event with the annual Manatee
Festival in 2006.
The idea is a win for every-
one, he said, including the fes-
tival, local businesses, mana-
tee education, and especially
the arts.
Rich said the alliance hopes
to raise money to build a cul-

dered Fiberglas horses. A new cultural alliance on the Nature
Coast wants to do a similar project with Fiberglas manatees in
Citrus County.


tural arts center on the coast*
and to sponsor many different
cultural and artistic activities.
He said the organizers have
thoroughly researched the
idea and have worked exten-
sively with the Marion Cultural
Alliance organizing and plan-
ning Manatee Magic.
The organizers knew, he
said, it was going to be a big
undertaking, and if they were
to do it, they wanted to do it
right. They wanted to learn
how others had already done it
and learn from them.
"We've been doing a lot of
groundwork," he said.
Rich said that during the
research, he and his wife trav-
eled to Multrie, Ga., to see a
cultural arts center that a local
group created there, and they
were impressed with the vari-
ety of activities, from pottery to
dance to drama. They were
especially impressed with the
program for youngsters, he
said.
In Georgia they also saw a
very successful dramatic pro-
gram called "Swamp Gravy"
that bi-annually produces local
plays that portray folk life of
Georgia through dramatic
themes, using the historyof the
local community.
That's one of the kinds of
things he would like to see
eventually come out of the cul-
tural alliance, he said.
*Rich said some of the other
principals who have been


involved include Sharon
Weaver and Shelby
Wiengarten, and that he fig-
'ured the effort will need many
good volunteers.
He said the project has been
kept under wraps until now
because there was so much
preliminary research and
work that had to be done; for
example, just getting designat-
ed by the IRS as a 501 (c) (3)
nonprofit group and copyright-
ing the name.
Rich said the idea of creat-
ing a cultural center and using
the Manatee Magic event to get
it off the ground came from the
feeling of organizers that they
wanted to leave a legacy to a
community that had been good
to them.
He said .the organizers have
realized that people can never
thank those who helped them
in their early lives, but they can
return it by helping those who
are younger, and a legacy of
cultural enrichment is an
invaluable gift
Leaving such a tradition, he
said, is their desire.
Rich said announcements
will be forthcoming. "We're
going to be ready to roll very
shortly," he said.

S. Paul Ehrlich
.BOYNTON BEACH Dr. S.
Paul Ehrlich Jr., who served as
acting surgeon general for four
years under Presidents Nixon,
Ford and Carter and lobbied
against cigarette smoking,
died in Delray Beach. He was
72.
The Delray Beach retiree
joined other surgeons general
in demanding more stringent
controls on secondhand smoke
and the sale and advertising of
tobacco in 1994 on the 30th
anniversary of the first sur-.
geon general's report on smok-
ing and disease."
He also appeared with other
former office holders to
oppose a federal policy pro-
posed to respond to the spread
of AIDS by requiring parental
consent before providing con-
traceptives and information on
birth control to minors.
While in office, Ehrlich
developed a hotline to commu-
nicate with Iron Curtain coun-
tries at a time of Cold War iso-
lationism and fought attempts
to eliminate the nation's most
recognized public health post
"He did more than anyone
I've ever known for American
health," said Dr. C. Everett
Koop, surgeon general under
President Reagan. "The r9le of
a man like Paul Ehrlich is not
to make big discoveries or to
move mountains ... It is to pro-
vide the steady, experienced
leadership for the public
health in this country"
At 41, Ehrlich was director
of the Office of International
Health when he took over as
surgeon general in 1973 after
training as an epidemiologist
He retired after he was diag-
nosed with multiple sclerosis
in 1981.
He died Thursday at
Bethesda Memorial Hospital
in Boynton Beach. Services
were set for Sunday at Beth
Israel Meniorial Chapel in
Boynton Beach.
The son of a Minneapolis
doctor, he is survived by his
wife Gerry, daughters Susan,
Paula and Jill and a grandson.

NEW ORLEANS New
Orleans Saints radio commen-
tator Buddy Diliberto better
known as "Buddy D" who
listened to loyal fans praise
and berate the team and often
offered a little colorful advice
of his own for the coaches,
died Friday He was 73.
Diliberto had been in failing
health for some time and the
cause of death was an appar-
ent heart attack, WWL-TV
reported.
In 1997, he had bypass sur-
gery following a series of heart
attacks.
Diliberto began his career as
a sportswriter for The Times-
Picayune in 1950.
He also served as a corre-
spondent for Stars and Stripes
during the Korean War and
suffered shrapnel wounds that
earned him a Purple Heart
He later went on to broad-
casting and served as sports
director and sports anchor for
WVUE-TV and WDSU-TV
before joining WWL radio in
1991.
His career was almost as col-
orful as his commentary
Diliberto was banned from the
