Chronicle
On March 8, 1971, Tim
Lee, a young Marine 'in
Southeast Asia, stepped on
a 60-pound Viet Cong mine,
which blew his legs off.
"One last step, and then it
happened my boot
landed squarely on what felt
like a miniature volcano,"
Lee writes on his Web site,
www.timlee.org. '"A deafen-
ing blast rammed through
my body. As Earl Lewis, the
fifth man in formation later
.testified, I disappeared in
the sudden eruption. As a


cloud of black smoke shot
into the sky, hot fire surged
through what remained of
my legs."
A corpsman, Lee Gore,
held the injured Marine and
prayed, "Help him, God!"
"God heard his prayers,"
Lee writes.
He admits that he had
been running from God.
"God had taken the legs
that had carried me from
his will," he writes. "My run-
ning had finally ended."
However, his walking with

"He has been holding

Sometimes the Valentine's
Day memories that stick most in
your mind are the ones you'd just as soon

We asked readers to tell us about Valen-
tine's Days gone awry and two couples re-
sponded.
For Bob and Ellen Malizia, a Pine Ridge
couple married almost 44 years, their Valen-
tine nightmare happened three years ago.
Bob, the president of the Corvette Club,
had taken the day off from work as assis-
tant superintendent atEl Diablo golf
course for the special day he had planned.
First, he and Ellern would drive their cus-
tom-painted 2006 Corvette to a bed-and-
"'b breakfast in Dunnellon Atomeet up with
others from the club for breakfast, then
they were all going to drive to Ravine Gar-
dens State Park in Palatka to see the thou-
sands of flowers in bloom.
However, during the middle of the night,
Ellen tripped over their sleeping dog and
hurt her ankle, although she didn't realize
how badly it was hurt until Bob left later to
walk the dog and found himself locked out
of the house.
When he knocked at the back door to get
Ellen's attention, she stepped out of bed
and immediately fell to the floor. With a
broken ankle, she crawled to the back door
to let Bob in. He took one look at the ankle
S. and knew they'd be spending their Valen-
tine's Day in the emergency room.
"But he said, 'We caiftgo yet; we have to
meet the club in DunIellon first,'" Ellen said.
"I had someone's gla sses and I had to re-
turn them," Bob said; !
The next obstacle was getting Ellen into the
Corvette, which was painful and awkward.
"We got to Dunnellon and I gave her flow-
ers and a CD and said, 'Now we're going to
the hospital,"' Bob said:
"It was a Valentine's Day I'll never forget
we had to wait to go to the hospital be-
cause we had to meet the Corvette Club
first!" Ellen said.
"The Corvette Club is something we can
do together," she said. "When we were in
Connecticut, he always went hunting, and
I'm not a hunter; I'm a bunny hugger. But

SWEETHEARTS
Continued from Page Al

and polite man," Joan said. "We
corresponded by mail and by
phone as he lived in Inverness,
and I lived in Kissimmee. One day
Lyle said, 'Why don't we just get
married? We live too far apart' I
replied, 'Yes, I agree with you."'
'Both had been married before,
something they don't like to talk
about
Wearing navy blue suits and
light blue shirts, the couple got
married at the Citrus County
courthouse July 3, 1996. After-
ward, they went to eat at the Old
World restaurant in Floral City,
but it was closed for the summer.
They ended up eating at the
restaurant at the Central Motel in
Inverness.
"Lyle offered to take us on a
honeymoon to Hawaii," Joan
said. "I told him that we lived in
Florida, which is a tropical para-
dise, so why should we go to all the
trouble to fly to Hawaii when we
could go to the beach on the east
coast or the west coast of Florida?
After all, a beach is a beach."
As the West Virginia Sweet-
hearts, they soon began making
music together.
"He's got a natural aptitude for
. it; he has perfect pitch," Joan said.
"He can change the strings of his
guitar, and without a pitch pipe or
anyone giving him an E on a
piano, he'll tune it with his ear
and it'll be right.,


"I have to work at it," she said.
"He'd teach me a song and say,
'You're going flat on that,' and I'd
say, 'I'm doing the best I can.' He'd
work with me five or six hours on
the same song."
The late Wally Jones, a local ac-
countant and musician, gave them
the name West Virginia Sweet-
hearts the time they played at the
monthly Gospel Jubilee at a local
Inverness church. Jones had
asked Lyle, "When I introduce you
and your wife, what do you call
yourselves?" Lyle thought for a
moment and said, "Oh, just call
us The Sweethearts from the West
Virginia Hills." But when Jones
introduced them he said, "Next
we will hear from the West Vir-
ginia Sweethearts."
The name just stuck
EMU
Lyle's story begins in laeger,
WVa., listening to the radio at age
4.
"My aunt had an old Silvertone
Sears guitar, and they'd take me to
the middle room'in that big ol'
house and put me up on the bed
with that guitar, close the door and
I was good for all day, banging on
that guitar," he said. "I didn't own
a guitar until I was 20."
He made a guitar out of a cigar
box and a broomstick for the neck,
using rubber bands as strings.
"My neighbor was a drunk and
he had a big, black guitar," Lyle re-
called. "He told me, 'Lyle, if you'll
go get me a fifth of whiskey, I'll
give you this guitar.' I said, 'I'm on
my way!'
"I never knew how to read


music still don't," he said. "I
knew about four or five chords
back then."
At age 24 and with only a dollar
in his pocket, Lyle and another
guy headed for Dayton, Ohio, to
look for work
"We couldn't find a job nowhere,
so we rented two guitars and
played in bars for tips. That's how
we ate," he said.
That's how his music career
began, too.
Meanwhile, Lyle found a job
with Jeep in Toledo, Ohio, where
he worked as a payroll clerk for 34
years. He also played guitar wher-
ever he could. At-one time he had
his own band, the Rebel-Aires.
"I was 6 or 7, and I had cousins,
who played professionally," Lyle
said. "One of them handed me a
guitar and I couldn't reach my fin-
gers to make a G chord. So, he said
I was too dumb to play. I told him
one of these days I'm going to be
on the same stage with Ernest
Tubb and don't you know, that's
the way it turned out
"He (Tubb) took to me and I took
to him, and we had two days of re-
ally good fun," Lyle said of the
time he fronted for Tubb in Toledo
Beach. "My dream came true."
He's met a lot of famous country
stars and has a wall of fame in the
living room. One of his most mem-
orable friendships was with Bill
Carlisle. Once, at a convention in
Nashville, Lyle and a friend were
at the airport on their way to call a
cab when Carlisle grabbed Lyle's
arm and offered to drive them to
the hotel in his shiny gold Cadillac.


Later, Carlisle got them into the
Grand 01 Opry through the back
entrance.
"I never really wanted to be a
recording star," Lyle said. "I just
wanted to go as far as I could. I
saw some things from my idols
that I didn't like; things in their
personal lives and I didn't want-
any part of it"
He's written 56 songs 19 of
them published. He also self-pub:
lished a book about Litwar, WVa.,
and has written three volumes of
poetry.
"They're mostly about her
(Joan)," he said.
While music is in Lyle's blood,
for Joan, itcs more of a labor of
love for her husband.
"I'd had piano lessons," she
said. "Once my nephew said to me,
'Aunt Joan, why is it you've had so
many years of piano lessons and
you don't play any better than you
do?'
"I would sing in the church
choir, but I didn't consider myself
a soloist," she said. "Lyle tried to
teach me guitar, and I learned a
few chords and two songs.
"If you want a secular song I can
play 'Little Brown Jug,' and if you
want a religious song I could do
'What A Friend We Have in
Jesus,"' she said. "Lyle said, 'What
if we go to a nursing home and
they ask for requests?' I told him,
'Well, if they want a secular song
they'll get 'Little Brown Jug' and if
they want a religious song--'."
Joan said music is just one of
her hobbies. Her others include


crocheting, knitting, one-stroke
painting and Lyle.
"One of my hobbies is not
housecleaning," she said. "That
doesn't excite me at all, and every-
thing I like to do makes a mess."
Sm
When the West Virginia Sweet-
hearts play at a gig, Lyle greets the
crowd. He says, "We're happy to
be, here and we really like this
place," unless, of course, they
don't really like it. Then he just
keeps mum.
He introduces his wife by say-
ing, "Now here's the 'boss lady' of
the WestVirginia Sweethearts, my
beautiful wife, Joan." They give
her a big hand and from then on,
she's on her own.
Lyle used to sing, but chronic
bronchitis has put the kibosh on
that
"When we're at a nursing home,
we do about 20 songs and he
hardly says a word until the end,"
Joan said.
"I think she does a real good job
on that Patsy Cline song, 'Crazy,"'
Lyle said. "Our theme song is
'Cowboy Sweetheart."'
"When I sing it....I say, 'I want to
be a West Virginia Sweetheart,"'
Joan said.
"Toward the end, of course, we
do 'Take Me Home, Country
Roads,"' Lyle said. "'And we always
end with 'God Bless America.'
Everybody stands, and we don't
even ask them to."

For those with private in-
surance, the recently an-
nounced double-digit
premium increases for peo-
ple purchasing their own
coverage with Anthem in
California could be a har-
binger. Medical costs are
rising in a weak economy,
causing healthy people to
drop coverage and raising
costs for those left behind,
with no limit in sight
"We will see real changes
in the way health care is de-
livered, regardless," Holtz-
Eakin said. "The question is
whether they are coordi-
nated and done proactively
or whether they are done on
the ground by providers, in-
surance companies and em-
ployers, reacting to their
costs and their risk pools."
A look at how some major
groups would fare if the
health care overhaul col-

continue unchecked:
OLDER PEOPLE: Both

were leery of the Demo-

If nothing gets done, large
employers will be the front
line in efforts to rein in
health care spending. They
will keep passing on costs to
employees through higher
premiums and copayments.
But they're also expected to
take a more aggressive ap-
proach to. get workers to

ing other lifestyle changes.
Employers won't just be in-

Experiencing Kenya


NEIL SAWYER/Special to the Chronicle
Giraffes, standing out as the tallest of the animals In Kenya, are graceful and fast as they
move about in search of food. Giraffes maintain close family ties.

Trip to Africa yields cornucopia of wildlife


C resting the Great Rift
Divide at 5,000 feet
elevation, just out-
side the city of Nairobi, the
vast Serengeti Plain
springs into view con-
summate Kenya! Breath-
taking is inadequate,
spiritual or ethereal may
better describe the experi-
ence.
We begged our driver to
stop as we descended into
the plains, but
our enthusiasm
for stopping
only heightened -
his insistence
that it was too
dangerous, due
to the narrow
highway and
fast traffic, most
of which were
oblivious to all Neil S
highway mark- SPONTA
ings and warn- TRAV
ing signs. This
ride, in our van comprised
of six wide-eyed "game
lookers," was the impetus
for us forming our own
tribe, as we would surely
have other issues to deal
with.
"Settle back for four
hours of travel on paved
roads before we hit a dusty
bumpy trail," our driver
advised. He should have
warned us about the paved
roads, as many appeared to
be under a continual state
of.'being repaired."


Only minutes before ar-
riving at camp, we came
upon ,a herd of elephants
very near the road our
first close-up sighting of
animals in Kenya. A sud-
den jolt of adrenalin ac-
companies every close-up
sighting of animals on a sa-
fari;, but that first sighting,
and one of such huge pro-
portions, was especially
awakening.
Our arrival at
camp, fraught
with anticipa-
tion, was uncer-
emonious as we
grabbed our
gear and headed
through the gate
to our assigned
tent This partic-
ular camp was
awyer fenced for per-
ILNEOUS sonal safety rea-
ELER sons, while
many wilder-
ness camps are unpro-
tected. After a stretch and
light lunch for refresh-
ment, our tribe was more
interested in going out on a
game drive than settling
into camp for our four-
night stay.
The long-awaited portal
to a cornucopia of wild and
exotic animals loomed in
the distance: the arched
gate to the Serengeti Game
Preserve, a mammoth pre-
serve of about 200 square
miles., At this point, all of


one's sensory receptors are
at full tilt. Within minutes
we began to see the hoped-
for sights of what we had
spent 20 hours of flight
time and eight hours of
drive time to see.
Words are inadequate to
describe the emotions of
seeing wild animals in
their natural habitat and
observing their interde-
pendent lifestyles that are
beneficial to all, We are
also keenly aware that the
moment that we would
step out of the Range
Rover we would be seen as
a meal to the large preda-
tors.
"What kind of animals
did you see?" is often
asked. The answer is sim-
ple, yet it evades the expe-
rience, which is
uppermost, as one's emo-
tions override the simplic-
ity of just "seeing" an
animal. I see a na-
turescape, with the animal
as an integral part of the
scene, each one in its natu-
ral habitat appearing like a
work of art, each element
supporting the other.
Hunters, by contrast, focus
on the animal, if they want
a kill.
Giraffes and elephants
rank among the largest of
animals and are always a
thrill to watch. Giraffes, as

gangly as they appear, are fluid in mo-
tion, especially as they run. They
seem to be riding on a wave. Giraffes
keep the acacia and other tall trees,
whose greens are far from the ground,
trimmed, while elephants feed on
low-hanging limbs and bushes; but
they get the high limbs in time of need
by simply pushing the tree down.
Most common on the plains are a
great variety of hoofed animals, of
which there are 257 species in the
world. Gazelles, impalas, zebras and
wildebeests are grazers and the most
plentiful on the savannah, keeping it
"mowed" in golf-course fashion. Ze-
bras are one of the most beautiful an-
imals and will most often walk away


from an intruder, displaying an unof-
fending view of hindquarters. Zebras
are beautiful from any angle.
The three large cats lions, leop-
ards and cheetahs are always high
on the list of exotic and exciting ani-
mals. Lions and cheetahs are usually
out in the open and easy to find, while
leopards are very shy, almost always
well hidden on a horizontal limb of a
tree with their long tails hanging
down. If it were not for the tail, most
leopard sightings would never occur.
If an intruder gets too close, leopards
will sometimes drop out of the tree
and flee.
The mysteries of the distant plains,
not in view from the Great Rift Divide
highway, were more rewarding than
anticipated. Each animal, perfectly
placed in its unique habitat, is forever
imbedded in memory and oft re-


peated in dreams for weeks there-
after.
We did get the pictures of the
Serengeti Plain from the Great Rift
Divide highway on our return trip, as
the viewpoints were on the friendly
side of the highway. The solidarity of
our tribe has survived, as we are hav-
ing our first reunion in San Francisco
at the end of February.

Natu Coast next game is

against District
4A-7 champions.


SEAN ARNOLD
For the Chronicle
ZEPHYRHILLS -No last-
second heroics, such as the
ones in the closing seconds
of both regulation and over-


time play Friday against
Zephyrhills, were going to
happen for the Lecanto boys
basketball team Saturday.
Instead, Nature Coast


Tech built on a 5-point half-
time lead with a 16-3 run to
begin the third period and
never let the Panthers get
any closer during a 60-38
District 4A-8 championship
game route by the Sharks.
It was the third meeting
between the two teams, but
in a year where Lecanto has
only lost five games, Nature
Coast (25-3) accounted for
three of them.
"(Lecanto head coach
Chris Nichols) has been


coaching for 30 years and he
is one of the best coaches
around, so we knew beating
(Lecanto) three times would
be tough," Nature Coast
head coach David Pisarcik
said. "We had to take what
they gave us and win a dif-
ferent way each time."
On this particular night,
taking what the Panthers
(20-5) gave them produced
some surprises.


Seven. Rivers succumb to bigger "Rock"

Chronicle
The Seven Rivers Warriors knew coming into Saturday
night's District 1A-4 championship game that they faced an up-
hill battle as they took on The Rock.
Poor sportsmanship by The Rock, where a player dunked
during pregame warm ups, led to a technical foul to open the
game. The Warriors converted the two free throws for a 2-0
lead but it was all The Rock after that as they cruised to an

LAKELAND In a dog-
eat-dog regional wrestling
tournament at Lake Gibson
High School on Saturday,
only the strongest survived,
Citrus and.Lecanto sent a
combined 19 wrestlers to
the Region 2A-2 event and
only two of those grapplers,

Lecanto's region and the
standings showed.
As a team, the Hurricanes
finished sixth with 69
points. Ovideo edged
Springstead by 13 points for'
the regional championship.
Whitton (152 pounds) and
Jackson (160) each won
their third-place matches
against Dunedin's Tyler
Smith and Liberty's J.J. Eli-
sis, respectively Whitton
won by a 10-4 decision while
Jackson scored a pin at 5:46.
Though' the two athletes
Citrus moved on to the Class
2A Wrestling Finals at the
Lakeland Center starting
Friday deserved to go, the
Hurricanes were slightly
disappointed in not advanc-

Citrus coach Mike Por-

Hurricane grappler's effort
but said there is only one
way to improve.

Special to the Chronicle
NEW PORT RICHEY -
Citrus County's Lauryn
Rashley took fourth place
and Ali Rawls took fifth in
the state girls weightlifting
meet Saturday at New Port
Richey River Ridge High
School.
Lady Hurricane Rashley
earned fourth in the 101-
pound class while her Citrus
teammate Rawls finished
fifth in the unlimited class.
Rashley wasn't supposed
to do that well.
Citrus County lifters don't
usually medal in their-first
state meet.
Rashley had a 140-pound
bench press and a 110-
pound clean and jerk for a
250-pound total.
"It's very exciting," she said.
"I didn't (expect to do that
well). I was really nervous."

Continued from Page BI

done it," a powerful state-
ment from a man that lives
every race of his life under
the heaviest scrutiny of any
driver on the NASCAR cir-
cuit "We walked by her car
...and I couldn't believe all
of the attention. It's just
amazing! It's great for the
sport. Good for our company
(JR Motorsports of which
Earnhardt is majority
owner and by whom Patrick
is employed). I think she's
attacking this opportunity,
which I love to see."
-Aspersistent as the atten-
. tion was on Patrick all week,
it was never more evident
than when she got involved
mina.rash on the 69th lap of
Saturday's DRIVE4COPD
300 Nationwide race at Day-
tona International Speed-
way. Literally hundreds of
accredited media members
raced to the Nationwide
garage and awaited
Patrick's emergence from
her wrecked racecar. In fact,
it was so great a throng that
NASCAR personnel actu-
ally had to separate the
media into two groups of
print and electronic. First,
however, they were asked to
wait while Patrick fulfilled


interview obligations in live
television and radio spots.
"This sport hasn't seen
anything like it, not to this
degree," said Dustin Long
who for the past 12 years has
covered NASCAR for'Land-
mark Communications.
Ironically enough Long
admitted, "The only thing
that I can remember that
even comes close is when
Dale Jr. qualified for his
first race back in 1999. That
whole week was crazy After
he qualified down there in
Charlotte, there were 30 or
40 of us that just swarmed
around him. It was pretty
crazy, but nothing like this."
To put it into perspective,
no sooner had the press set-
tled back in their seats in the
infield media center follow-
ing the post-wreck inter-
views with Patrick than
Earnhardt became involved
in a crash. The multi-car
wreck sent debris all over the
track as Junior's car flipped
on its hood and violently
spun down the raceway.
Everyone looked at the
monitors in the newsroom
and then went right back to
transcribing their notes
from the Patrick interview.
Any other race, any other
day, the media center would
have emptied out and
rushed to talk with Junior
Instead, only a handful of

the most media

/seen want to
talk to a single
athlete. a

Kerry Tharp
director of communications
for NASCAR on media
surrounding Danica Patrick.

reporters were waiting for
Junior as he exited the In-
field Care Unit.
"If it wasn't for the fact
that Danica was in this race,
I wouldn't even have been
here until (Sunday)," said
New York Times reporter
Viv Bernstein, who for the
past six years has been cov-
ering NASCAR, and partic-
ularly the Daytona 500, for
one of the world's most rep-
utable newspapers. "I can't
say 100 percent for sure, but
I'm pretty sure The New
York Times has never cov-
ered a Nationwide race.
And I can almost guarantee
you that they've never cov-
ered an ARCA race before
last week"
Not only did The New
York Times cover Patrick's


NASCAR debut in last Sat-
urday's ARCA race, they ac-
tually pulled in one of the
reporters they had assigned
to the Super Bowl down the
road in Miami to come up
and cover the race, Bern-
stein admitted.
"She's more than a race-
car driver. She's a star,"
Bernstein said.
And she wasn't alone.
David Newton, who has
covered NASCAR for ESPN
the past five years and was a
member of the college basket-
ball beat for 27 years before
that, was quite matter-of-fact
with his thoughts.
"It was the craziest thing
I've ever seen," he said.
"Even Tony Eury Jr. (Earn-
hardt's cousin and Patrick's
crew chief) said he's never
seen anything like it"
And then there was Ed
Hinton who has covered
NASCAR for 36 years and
most recently for ESPN. He
admitted the last time he
saw this kind of media at-
tention was Patrick's rookie
season in IRL.
"I can remember the tele-
vision crews actually follow-
ing her right up to where
she walked into the por-
talet," he said. "And then
they waited right there for
her until she came out But
I've never seen a media mob
like I saw today, never. It's


not just that she's a woman
racecar driver. I think it's
her charisma. She's just got
that 'it' factor."
It's one thing for members
of the media to notice the
mayhem, but when it's your
job to control that media
frenzy, you, have a unique
viewpoint all your own.
Such is the perch that Kerry
Tharp, the director of com-
munications for NASCAR
competition,,has sat atop for
the past six years.
"This is the most media I
have ever seen want to talk
to a single athlete. But give
her credit, she handled it
great," Tharp said. "She re-
ally kept her poise. She's a
real pro. Looking at the peo-
ple surrounding her car be-
fore the race was quite a
spectacle. She really
brought a lot of attention to
our spot this week"
Indeed she has.
And if this week is any in-
dication she isn't through
yet Truth is, if you listen to
those who know the spot
best like Tony Stewart, "her
best is yet to come. Danica is
just getting started, I prom-
ise you."

Bergantino still led his team

Today's HOROSCOPE


Birthday: Owing to your optimism and drive, your outreach
will be far more extensive than usual in the year ahead.
You're likely to find many new ways to gratify several per-
sonal interests you've previously kept hidden.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Go about your business
doing what you have to do and the money you hope to
make will automatically be there. In fact, you could earn far
more than you ever dared to think.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Personal projects or under-
takings will be the ones most likely to turn out the best.
Don't put anything important in the hands of others.
Aries (March 21-April 19) -A new start is in the making
with someone important to you. Try to be more sensitive,
and intuitively, you'll know exactly how to appeal to this per-
son.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) It's an excellent time to weed
out what has been unproductive in your life, so begin to


show some faith in those who are trying. Use your best
thoughts to do so, and you won't be sorry.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) Do not minimize the excel-
lent potential of a new project. If you need a fresh start,
give it a chance by nurturing it slowly and properly until it

Cracks in the wall

Chinese businessman Wu Junliang talks during a Dec. 8, 2009, Interview with The Associated Press In his office in Shenzhen, China. Wu
battled for years to get local officials to reveal their publicly funded budgets, but in a country notorious for keeping citizens in the dark, his
quest seemed nearly Impossible. Then China did what would once have been unthinkable, it enacted an open-government policy, and last

Chinese government slowly releasing grip on culture ofsecrecy


Associated Press
SHENZHEN, China -
T he Chinese businessman bat-
tled for years to get cities to
reveal their budgets, but his
quest seemed quixotic in a
country notorious for keeping
citizens in the dark
Then China did what would
once have been unthinkable
-it enacted an open-govern-
ment policy, and last fall Wu Junliang
pressed his case with the Guangzhou city
government. This time, to his surprise, he
won -big time. The largest city in southern
China put budget plans for all 114 municipal
departments and agencies online. Aston-
ished citizens flooded the Web site to down-
load documents, causing it to crash by the
second day.
It was an eye-opening moment, illustrat-
ing the potential of the fledgling Open Gov-
ernmentInformation regulation -to allow
Chinese citizens to challenge the govern-
ment's culture of secrecy.
"We were all very excited. It's the first
time in 60 years in this country that a city
government has released their budget And
more significantly, they put it online so
everyone can access it," said Wu, 51.
Although he says he never set out to be a
crusader, his victory was by far the biggest
since the regulation took effect nationwide
on May 1, 2008, allowing citizens to request
information and get a response from the gov-
ernment within 15 to 30 days.
It's an important step toward trans-
parency for a country struggling to combat
corruption and meet the needs of a rising
middle class and an economy that will soon
be the second biggest after America.
"Clearly, nationwide, Chinese have be-
come increasingly aware that they have
legal rights and they are becoming more
confident in using them," said Katherine
Wilhelm, senior fellow at Yale University's
China Law Center.
Recent years have indeed seen greater
openness public hearings on utility rates,
for example but the new disclosure pol-
icy could be the most significant in deliver-
ing government accountability.
"This is a starting point but it's also a turn-
ing point," said law professor Wang Xixin


Beijing alone fielded
some 25,000 queries and
processed about 500 formal
requests in the first couple
of months. Many dealt with
individual interests, such
as property disputes, urban
housing demolitions and
company restructuring.
Among the first was a
query about how much had
been collected from tolls on
the Beijing Capital Airport
Expressway and where the
money had gone.
from Peking University. "Traditionally,
China's legal and political culture empha-
sizes keeping secrets inside government
The idea of open government or trans-
parency is quite new. One of the most signif-
icant impacts of ... (the new regulation) is
that it helps to change that kind of bureau-
cratic ideology."
Although the change applies to all levels
of government, its limitations are also clear.
Exempt from release are official state se-
crets, a category so broadly defined that vir-
tually anything maps, GPS coordinates,
even economic statistics can be withheld.
In theory, the rule can be used to try to pry
any information out of any government
agency. But ordinary Chinese know to stay
away from subjects that would directly
threaten the Communist Party's monopoly
on power, such as harassment of political
dissidents or ariti-government violence in
Tibet And officials can still easily put infor-
mation beyond the reach of citizens by de-
claring it a state secret.
Implementation has been slow and un-
even. One survey of 30 provinces found that
more than 60 percent had failed the criteria
for responsiveness. Even Wu's rare success

may not be a total victory some question
whether Guangzhou's budget numbers are
complete.
Still, experts say the new measure could
be far-reaching, because it helps establish a
foundation for broader legal reforms.
The very idea that citizens are entitled to
obtain information from their government
was electrifying to many. Requests, from the
mundane to the politically sensitive, poured
in as Chinese navigated new terrain.
A Beijing dog owner wanted to know
where pet-licensing fees were going. A
Shanghai lawyer sought specifics about
China's 4 trillion yuan ($588 billion) stimu-
lus plan. Artist Ai Weiwei asked why so
many schoolchildren had perished in the
2008 Sichuan earthquake (5,300 out of 90,000
by official count, but the number is believed
to be much higher.)
Beijing alone fielded some 25,000 queries
and processed about 500 formal requests in
the first couple of months. Many dealt with
individual interests, such as property dis-
putes, urban housing demolitions and com-
pany restructuring.
Among the first was a query about how
much had been collected from tolls on the
Beijing Capital Airport Expressway and
where the money had gone. The request was
filed by Wang, the law professor, who is
among a group of legal scholars using the new
rule to push open the doors of government
He got only a partial answer but his effort
got extensive media coverage. "We called it
a test case," he said. "If we filed, would the
government respond? But secondly, it was to
let the public know they can do it too."
Shanghai lawyer Yan Yiming is still wait-
ing for specifics on the massive stimulus
plan. He filed his third request in January.
"Although a lot of obstacles get in the way,
I will stick to it anyway," he said.
Wu has been portrayed in national publi-
cations as a public interest hero, though his
glasses and thoughtful manner make him'
seem more wonkish than populist
He spent 20 years in the U.S., and calls
himself Julian. Wu got a master's degree in
. political science from the University of
Houston and worked in financial services
there. He now heads a finfl)cial assets firm
in Shenzhen, a boomtown on the border
with Hong Kong, south of Guangzhou.

en. Charlie Dean,

that the residents of
Citrus County are not
smart enough to elect a
governing board for Citrus

Sen. Dean met Tuesday
in Tallahassee with. a
group of Citrus County

plained that he thought
the issues involved were
too complicated for voters
to make such a choice.
Hmmm.
Instead, Sen. Dean likes
the current system where
he gets to nominate board
members from the com-

final selection..
The process keeps
those pesky voters out of

pay the taxes and medical

but how dare they want to

with the 1993 budget bill and

without a single Republican vote
(sound familiar?)." Total distor-
tion of history. First, in 1992,
Clinton campaigned on no new
taxes for the middle class. He
broke that promise in 1993 with
the Deficit Reduction Act, which
Republicans would not support.
This reversal of his campaign
promise resulted in the public
voting congressional Democrats
out in the 1994 election. The
Clinton administration contributed
to creating the surplus inherited
by George W. Bush, but the most
significant contributor was the

Remember soldiers
I am writing in hopes that
members of Citrus County social
organizations such as the Elks,
Moose, Lions, Masons, Kiwanis
and Knights of Columbus, etc., will
consider our service personnel
serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
They face daily danger and must.
often feel demoralized and lonely
Perhaps the female members
and wives of members could run
a fundraiser such as a bake sale
to purchase phone cards to send
to these servicemen. It would be
a wonderful thing for them to
call home, perhaps on Mothers
Day, and relieve some loneliness
and boost morale.
The church I am a member of
has always found these bake
sales great fundraisers and the
ladies baking and selling these
goods always have an enjoyable
time. I have friends at other con-

to be good fundraisers and fun.

they are making.

Rewriting history
I'm compelled to respond to
"Obama and Hoover's Folly,"
which appeared in the Chroni-
cle Sunday edition (Jan. 31). This
is yet another example of liber-
als willfully distorting or rewrit-
ing history to justify their
agenda (you know, the ends jus-
tify the means).
The authors state that Obama's
plan to cut back on deficit spend-
ing at this time is wrong and cite
what they claim are the mistakes
of Herbert Hoover, who they in-
accurately describe as a fiscal
conservative. The Hoover infer-
ence is that he sat back and did
nothing until it was too late -
the laissez-faire approach -
thus causing the Great Depres-
sion of 1929. This is totally false..
Prior to Hoover's presidency,
laissez-faire had been the policy
dictated both by sound theory
and historical precedent, having
been established during our first
Great Depression in 1819. After
he was elected president, Hoover
embarked on an anti-depression
program marked by extensive
government economic planning
and intervention. From the start,
Hoover marched directly toward
violating all laissez-faire cannons.
As history now proves, his gov-
ernment intervention failed and
the Great Depression of 1929 was
the result. According to the au-
thors, it's simple: "In hard eco-
nomic times, when the government
is the spender of last resort,
deficit spending is the best way
to fuel the economy..."
Next the authors rewrite the
history of the Clinton adminis-
tration: "Leaders can cut the

The obvious question in
Citrus County is: could the
voters select anyone to the
governing board of our hos-
pital who would make a big-
ger mess than we have now?
I must admit that after a
recent column suggesting
that Sen. Dean support the
idea of electing the hospital
board, a smart-aleck reader
e-mailed me about the con-
fidence I was expressing in,
choices made by voters.
"After all," the reader
pointed out, "voters elected
Charlie Dean."


This issue goes to the fun-
damental question of taxa-
tion without representation.
Sen. Dean himself was once
a loud critic of the South-
west Florida Water Manage-
ment District board for this
very reason. That board
controls the water district in
the region and gets to levy a
property tax. The same gu-
bernatorial-appointment
process is used on the water
board and people hate it
The governor likes it and
the politicians who get to
make the nominations like
it because they all enjoy the
political power that goes
along with being a big shot.
Once again, it's just those
pesky citizens who keep get-


ting in the way.
Some have expressed a
fear that if the hospital
board members were
elected, the doctors of our
community would be the
only group that could get
people elected. Doctors
have lots of money to run'a
campaign, they are well ed-
ucated and they understand
the medical system. Once
again, I have confidence in
the voters.
Physicians certainly de-
serve a say in how our com-
munity hospital operates,
but there's no way voters
would just elect physicians
to make the business deci-
sions of how our hospital
operates and how much tax


is levied against property
owners.
The current system used
to govern Citrus Memorial is
broken and a public resolu-
tion is needed. The govern-:
ing board needs to be made
up of a group of smart peo-
ple from different walks of
life that can oversee a huge
business and meet the
needs of our community.
Those people exist in Citrus
County right now. Some of
them are currently on the
hospital foundation board
and governing board. Others
are citizens in our commu-
nity who have not been
called upon to help but
would if they were asked.
Under the current system


of appointment, only our
senator and the governor
get to make the decisions
about who will run. the hos-
pital. And that ends up hav-
ing a lot to do with politics,
campaign contributions and
political affiliation.
Sen. Dean may not think
it's a good idea, but Gov.
Crist is running for the U.S.
Senate later this year and
he has to depend on the vot-
ers of Citrus County and the
other 66 counties to back his
candidacy. Those voters
would like to know if Gov.
Crist concurs with Sen.
Dean that voters can't be
trusted to make important
decisions.
The hospital board and


foundation board need to
hammer out their problems
and present a compromise
that creates a new 10-mem-
ber elected board to run Cit-
rus Memorial hospital. The
11th member of the board
would be the medical chief
of staff at the hospital, thus
ensuring that physicians
would have representation.
Taxpayers deserve a role
in determining how taxes
are spent and how the hos-
pital operates. We shouldn't
settle for anything less.

When insurers fail, Floridians suffer


BILL GUNTER
Special to the Chronicle


Editor's note: This is an open
letter to state Sen. Mike Fasano in
response to a guest column he
wrote that was published in the
Chronicle.
Dear Sen. Fasano:
First, I want to thank you
for taking the time to
share your thoughts regarding the
Consumer Choice bill for prop-
erty insurance. While we may not
agree on the best solution, I'm
sure we can agree that Floridians
deserve both the lowest possible
premiums and an insurance com-
pany that can pay their claims
after the wind blows.
You mentioned my previous sta-
tus as a public official. I am very
proud to have been elected to
serve the people of Florida in the
Congress, as a member of the
Florida Senate, and, critical to
this issue, as State Treasurer and
Insurance Commissioner for 12
years, beginning in 1976. It was in
this last capacity that I, like you,
developed, an appreciation for
quotes.~from. Winston Churchill.
While O .ose to quote his ad-
vice to learn from the past, I think
the following from Churchill is
more applicable to the current
system you have created for
Florida's property insurance
market: "However beautiful the
strategy, you should occasionally
look at the results."
So, let's review the results of
the current system. First, an
often-overlooked fact: the current
"strategy" is not only failing to
keep homeowners premiums
down, it also unjustly overbur-
dens less fortunate consumers
who can't afford a home at all by
levying assessments on their auto,
rental dwellings or mobile homes,
apartment, small business, and
other insurance policies. There is
also an additional tax on all those
living inland and even those who
have invested in mitigation to
protect their homes and families.
And, we all pay twice when com-
mercial policyholders pass their
assessments down to the con-
sumers who buy their products.
These are the overwhelming,
often forgotten, majority of the
consumers, which your current
system has ignored.
Statewide, around 83 percent of


"homeowners" are not insured in
Citizens. Even in counties with
record numbers of Citizens poli-
cyholders (such as those you rep-
resent), non-Citizens insurance
customers are the majority and
they are taxed "mostly" to subsi-
dize those living nearest the
water. This "majority" has be-
come increasingly vocal about as-
sessments they don't deserve and
that often exceed the rate in-
creases your strategy has failed to
curtail.
As you pointed out, in the late
1970s, as an elected official, I op-
posed the deregulation of auto-
mobile insurance.. I oppose it
today. But, your letter implied
that such a stand was inconsistent
with my support of the Consumer
Choice bill. Let's be clear, if
today's homeowners market was
the same as the "auto" market in
the 1970s, not only would I be op-
posed to any deregulation for
property insurance, but... Florid-
ians would all be much better off.
I think you know that neither
today's homeowners market nor
the Consumer Choice bill by Sen.
Bennett and Rep;. Proctor bear
any resemblance to the problems
we addressed with no-fault auto-
mobile insurance in the '70s. In
fact, I'm sorry to say, Florida's
homeowners market is so much
worse that, in my opinion, if the
"big one" hits, it will create a ca-
tastrophe beyond anything we
could have imagined 30 years ago,
or today for that matter. And, the
real tragedy would be seen in the
financial aftermath created by the
current property insurance
scheme.
With auto insurance three
decades ago, the large out-of-state
carriers were "threatening" to
leave. Today's out-of-state home-
owners carriers have already left.
And the largest remaining, State
Farm, is non-renewing 125,000
policies after being granted a pre-
mium increase of 42 percent (14
percent in base rate plus 28 per-
cent through elimination of cred-
its) for those it is still willing to
insure. This was "agreed" to, in
part, because State Farm re-
ported a net underwriting loss of
$331 million, according to Office
of Insurance Regulation (OIR) re-
ports.
As an aside, I understand you
are insured by State Farm. Please
tell me, is a 42 percent increase in


premium the "result" you were
seeking with the current strategy?
Is it the "result" that over 700,000
other Florida State Farm policy-
holders were promised when you
voted for and implemented HB 1A
in 2007? It's certainly not the re-
sult I would've wanted when I was
Insurance Commissioner.
Maybe some Florida policy-
holders, your constituents per-
haps, are happy with their
homeowners premiums; my
clients are not. Consumers, par-
ticularly those who own property
near the coast, are upset about
the price of protecting theirlhome.
and possessions. But there are
other problems which, up to this
point, have not been given the full
airing Florida consumers de-
serve. They are:
Without a single hurricane in
four years, a period of time in
which the state (Citizens) and all
insurance companies should've
been building their surplus, more
than half of the insurers are show-
ing losses and many have serious
depletions of surplus. Commis-
sioner McCarty reported to your
insurance committee that 102 of
210 insurers had net underwriting
losses.
Citizens' rates, according to
its own actuaries, are between 40
and 50 percent too low. Some
might say that is "political rate
suppression." Citizens will add
another layer of assessments to
the "undeserving" majority with
even the smallest of hurricanes
striking in south Florida.
The state's top two carriers
(Citizens and State Farm Florida)
insure almost 2 million struc-
tures, and neither is on sound
footing. But the next four largest
writers insure nearly 800,000 ad-
ditional Floridians, and ... they
are all losing money. That's nearly
half of Florida's policyholders in-
sured by carriers that are strug-
gling even without a storm!
Several companies have
folded recently Coral Insur-
ance went bankrupt last year.
Now, Magnolia, the 12th largest
property insurer in the state with
more than $24 billion in exposure,
including 44,000 policyholders in
Palm Beach, Broward, and
Miami-Dade counties, has been
taken over by regulators. Addi-
tionally, American Keystone was
declared insolvent late last year
and is currently being liquidated.


* Our commissioner has re-
ferred to the current reports
from companies as "dire." In
what I believe is an attempt to
keep these "dire" reports below
the public radar, the OIR is bro-
kering deals to have some com-
panies absorb the policies of
others that are falling behind,
such as Edison and Magnolia.
But it is also communicating with
a number of additional compa-
nies with concerns over their
ability to pay claims. *
One recently insolvent com-
pany, American Keystone, had
been approved by the OIR despite
connections it had with a con-
victed felon, the former head of
another collapsed insurer
. Rate suppression has led to
44 of Florida's top 73 property in-
surance writers posting net un-
derwriting losses.
M I recently visited with 17 in-
surance companies, every one of
which posted net underwriting
losses. Coincidentally, several had
filed and received OIR permis-
sion to increase their rates 14.9
percent First, why would the OIR
approve increases if they weren't
deserved and needed? Second,
why 14.9 percent and not 20 per-
.cent or 15.1 percent or something
else? I was told that it's because
at 15 percent a public hearing is
required and "... the OIR would
like to avoid that if possible."
Again, some might call that polit-
ical rate suppression.
Soon,.the 2009 figures will be
out. I believe they will reflect even
more dire "results." Rate in-
creases, non-renewals, net under-
writing losses, and we have not
had a single major storm in more
than four years! What's being
done to protect Floridians after
the wind blows? The Consumer
Choice bill is one answer. But, I
would gladly welcome any pro-
posal you have to offer as well.
Keep in mind, one of the big dif-
ferences between today's home-
owners market and the auto
market you compared it to over 30
years ago, is that homeowners
today have a public option in-
surer with suppressed rates -
Citizens. It provides essentially
the same coverage as private car-
riers and is one option under the
Consumer Choice bill. Your cur-
rent system leaves consumers the
choice of either "Citizens" or a
hundred or more private carriers


that might not survive the next
storm, which, if they do survive,
will be assessed to pay the losses
of the public option insurer, Citi-
zens. That's not a choice it's a
Ponzi scheme.
When I was insurance commis-
sioner, sometimes, despite my
best efforts, a carrier would fail.
But, I knew I had done all I could
to keep that from happening. The
"results" stated above, and to
some extent in your letter, seem to
reflect the opposite philosophy of,
"Who cares if they fail?"
Remember the information I
have shared in this letter is all
verifiablerwith data from the OIR
and the National Association of
Insurance Commissioners
(NAIC). I take seriously my re-
sponsibility as an agent to advise
my clients as to which companies
will pay their claims. But, agents,
like me, are losing faith in the reg-
ulatory system that is producing
the "dire" figures above.
I cannot continue to explain to
my clients which company they
can trust to make good on its
promise and which one might fold
after the "big one." But frankly,
isn't that-the state's job, the OIR,
the Legislature, perhaps?
So, I must ask you, which com-
pany would you advise someone
to buy insurance from, one of the
102 the commissioner says are
showing "dire" results or the one
the state has given a lower price
and, through assessments, a guar-
antee of claim payment?
Senator, I ask that you and your
colleagues at least look at some of
the proposed solutions to this
pending crisis with an open mind.
Under the Consumer Choice bill,
consumers can choose from a sol-
vent carrier or go to Citizens;
what's wrong with giving them
that choice? If you have a pro-
posal that will guarantee the "in-
surance promise" of payment of
claims, perhaps we can work to-
gether to get it implemented.
After all, Churchill's wisdom ap-
plied to Florida's insurance sys-
tem would be that our strategy
may have been "beautiful," but
the people of Florida deserve bet-
ter "results."

ance commissioner, is chairman

Public financing the cure for corruption


JACK MANN
Special to the Chronicle
or some time now,
the American people
have been quite con-
cerned about how we fi-
nance our elections and at
the same time, the length of
time that we spend cam-
paigning at each election.
This latest Supreme
Court ruling has made it
even more apparent that
just a relatively few will be
participating in financing
these elections, and thereby,
through their lobbyists,
gaining more and more con-
trol over our system.
A number of CEOs of
large corporations have
written a letter to the presi-
dent, suggesting that some-
thing has to be done in
order to stop this situation.
There is a way that it
could be ddne, and this is
just one thought that could
be used in order to solve


this problem and bring the
American people both back
into the election process
and into their future, as far
as this country is concerned.
That would be to charge
$3 on each income tax re-
turn, which would bring in
about $300 million per year
and $600 million over a two-
year period.
This money would go into
an independent agency in
Washington to then be dis-
tributed back'to the states
on the basis of two senators
from each state and the
number1'of congressmen in
each state.
The states would then re-
quire candidates to collect,
for example, 25,000 signa-
tures, and receive $25,000
from the fund to run a cam-
paign.
This would mean every
individual who had the abil-
ity to collect the signatures,
could run for Congress.
Then we would hold a pri-


mary election, say in April
and May, and the two that
won the primaries in each
congressional district would
then be able to run for Con-
gress in the General Elec-
tion.
At that point in time, each
of those individuals would
get $100,000 to $200,000 to
run their campaign; which
would last just in the months
of September and October
and up to the election.
As for the senators from
each state, each senator
would have to go out and
collect a certain number of
signatures for example,
50,000 names and turn
them in long before primary
time. They would receive
$200,000 to $250,000 to run
their campaign. Again, their
campaign would run Sep-
tember and October, up to
the election.
This way the people
would participate in the fi-
nancing of campaigns and


those who were elected into
office would be responsible
to the people.
At this point in time, we
could say we don't need lob-
byists in Washington. The
congressmen and the sena-
tors would work with a staff
that would determine what
legislation is necessary,
write the legislation and fol-
low it through the Congress.
As for the presidency, that
money would have to stay in
that independent agency in
Washington, and each indi-
vidual who wanted to run
for presidency would have
to collect so many signa-
tures from each state so that
they would have enough sig-
natures that would qualify
them to run for the presi-
dency
Then, they would receive
$250,000 to $300,000 for their
run in the primary election.
And again, it would run
April and May. The two that
emerge one Democrat


and one Republican -
would then run in the Gen-
eral Election in September
and October and would
have, again, a certain
amount of money $5 mil-
lion to $10 million they
could then use to run in the
general election. And that
way we would have a presi-
dent who is responsible to
the people, not to the very
wealthy, not to the labor
unions, but to the people of
the United States of America.
This is one thought; one
way that our elections could
be run that would make it
much more equitable for all
of the people of the country
and would get our country
possibly back on the track it
should be on.
Remember, these are all
estimates, either in terms of
the numbers of signatures
necessary on the petitions
or the amount of money that
could be spent for congres-
sional, Senate or presiden-


tial elections.
This would have to proba-
bly be done through a refer-
endum of the people
because Congress, as well as
those who are now benefit-
ing from the present system,
would not want this system
to come about, even though,
as I mentioned earlier, some
corporate executives feel
that something has to be
done.
Another problem that
might arise would be the re-
turn of groups such as the
Pendergast team or the
other groups that were be-
hind the elections up
through World War II.
But, regardless, this is just
a thought and is something
that maybe could be looked
at and something that could
happen.

printed in the Sun-
day Citrus County
Chronicle dated Feb.
7 (on Page 5 of the
Commentary section
and headlined "Crys-
tal River Village ac-
cusations baseless")
is a one-sided opinion
of the family that owns
Crystal River Village.
My name is Edward
L. Green. I represent
the Citrus County
Citizens Coalition.
We are a group of
homeowners who
meet on a regular
basis and share iri-

formation about our communities.
The No. 1 thing that we are all most
concerned about is the fairness of
rents. We not only share but compare
rent to rent and amenity to amenity for
each of our communities. I/we take
exception to the consistent misquotes
of numbers being disseminated from
the owners of Crystal River Village.
The citizens of Citrus County need
to be informed of the truth. The state
Department of Business and Profes-
sional Regulation has determined
that the owners must meet with the
residents to try and work out a fair
and reasonable solution to this dis-
agreement of rent increase. They
also need to know that certain
amenities are being removed from
the residents of Crystal River Village


and not being replaced, and those
amenities such as shuffleboard courts
are in such disarray that they are un-
usable. Anyone can visually verify
that the public laundry facilities
have been removed and not replaced
and can also inspect the shuffleboard
courts just by driving by and not just
by taking my words for the truth. But
yet the rent increases are by no way
reasonable and fair no more than
they are comparable
3r-month to that of Forest View
or Walden Woods.

A $25-per-month lot-rent increase
during a time of no COLA increases
and inflation is no more than greed.
It is nowhere close to the 2010 in-
creases of the surrounding commu-
nities. It is nowhere close to fair and
reasonable. It is time that the seniors
stand up foir themselves and support
fellow citizens who are being un-
fairly treated. I would ask the White-
hurst family how much is enough?


Edward L. Green is spokesman for
the Citrus County Citizens Coalition.
Representatives ofmember
residential parks agreed that
Mr Green's comments reflect
their collective opinion.


American progress -
Having read the story of the black deputy in
Citrus County, it is truly a tribute to the found-
ing fathers and the United States Constitution
that our society has.moved forward to the point
where we voted in a black president.
Kindness of strangers 0
I want to say I was in Walmart Satur-
day (Feb. 6) and I left a package in my
basket in the parking lot. So anyway,
the'person returned it to me, turned it
into the office. I want to just tell them
thank you very much.
Joining the party CAL
I agree with the tea party movement. 563.
I think it's,more of a grassroots move- 56P
ment that's against big government
and big-government spending. I haven't been
able to go to any of the tea parties because I've
had to work, but I want to join. Is there any way
I can join online or is there a phone number
here locally I can call because I want to put my
vote in with them? I really agree with less
spending, lower taxes and smaller government
and I think that's the main message.
Block by block
Just read the Sound Off from the Beverly Hills
resident. I agree; years ago when you said you
lived in Beverly Hills, people would say how lucky
you are, it's so nice. Now they just say, "Yuck."
Why isn't more being done? Look at how nice

Though he calls it "just a
hobby," budget reform has be-
come his passion. He even cre-
ated a Web site
(www.budgetofchina.com) in
2006, the year before he re-
turned to China. Then he
heard about the new disclo-
sure regulation.
"I thought, at least I have
something to back me up. I
found a weapon I can use," he
said. "Without this regulation,
we had no legal way to ask
these questions."


Inverness is coming along. Come on, Beverly Hills.
Let's get with it. Let everyone who has a bad
street, the parks, speeders, dogs barking, etc.,
make a list ... see what we can do about it. Let's
go block by block. We can do it and I'm sure
there's a lot of seniors and a lot of
IND people out there who would be more
U than glad to help, especially the ones
FF who don't have a ride, if someone could
pick them up. (We'd) be more than
glad to see Beverly Hills shine again.
Outrageous wait

fore seeing a doctor. No one was put
ahead of anyone, no matter how sick they were,
which is ridiculous. Never once did any employee
ever give any explanation for the long waits un-
less you asked. There has to be a better sys-
tem. Whatever they're doing isn't working.
Walk the walk'
I hope Republicans, as well as Democrats,
will accept President Obama's invitation to sit
down and have an on-camera health care dis-
cussion. Republicans have been talking about
the benefits of their plan and accusing the De-
mocrats of not allowing them to air them. Well,
here's your chance. Let's see if Republicans walk
the walk or just want to keep on talking the talk.

Avon rep helps
Relay for Life effort
Gina Starr, a local Avon representa-
tive, is participating in the American
Cancer Society Relay for Life efforts this
year.
Starr said ACS is close to her heart
"since the death of her father from can-
Cer many years ago. 'This is a way for
me to give back to what ACS is doing in
the lives of others suffering from can-
cer," Starr said.
For more information, call Starr at
228-2648.
2 Avon has worked with Breast Cancer
Awareness through the years and has
donated millions of dollars to the cause
', 'ith fundraising efforts.
Local funeral home
professional recertified
Matt Watley, CFSP, CPC, vice presi-
dent and general manager of Hooper
. .Funeral Homes & Crematory, has re-
-.ently qualified for recertification of the
designationn of certified funeral service
practitioner (CFSP), by the Academy of
Professional Funeral Service Practice.
SWatley is also a lifetime member of the
-,academy.
A number of professions grant special
recognitionn to members upon comple-
tion of specified academic and profes-
sional programs and "CFSP" is the.
funeral service's national individual
recognition.


The Academy of Professional Funeral
Service Practice, since its founding in.
1976, has had as its goals: to recognize
those practitioners who have voluntarily
entered into a program of personal and
professional growth, and to raise and
improve the standards of funeral service
and to encourage practitioners to make
continuing education a lifelong process
in their own self-interest, the interest of
the families they serve and the commu-
nity in which they live and serve.
To initially receive the designation of
CFSP, the practitioner must complete a
180-hour program of continuing educa-
tion activities and events.
In addition, the practitioner is required
to accumulate 20 hours of continuing
education per year to be recertified.
Hooper Funeral Homes & Crematory
serves the families of Citrus County with
locations in Inverness, Beverly Hills and
Homosassa.
Call 726-2271.

To market,

to market

job market in
lorida?
Thursday was always
market day for shopping in-
Sittard, the Netherlands, a
town I lived in during the
1990s. Picture a busy open-
air market with employers
shouting out professions
they need to be filled, while
job candidates are walking
or running around the mar-
ket square looking for their
next employers.
There is such a virtual
market on the Internet -
Employ Florida Market-
place. There are many job
sites for looking for work,
but in the state of Florida
the official site is Employ
Florida Marketplace,
www.employflorida.com,
designed to help job seek-
ers and employers connect
When I was searching for
work on Employ Florida
Marketplace, I didn't know
to sign up on the site and
my resume was improperly
formatted. Meeting with
Workforce Connection
staff, I received help with
my online resume and up-
dating my resume. My re-
sume was actually an
example used at a profes-
sional gathering of what
you should not do.
Please don't let your re-
sume be unreadable, like
my resume was for a while.
It's vital for job seekers to
be fully registered on Em-
ploy Florida Marketplace
to land a job. The following
steps will make the differ-
ence in your search.
The first step is to go to
www.employflorida.com to
start the registration'
process. The process is
simple, but it is important
to post your resume on the
site. Just follow the direc-
tions for the process.
You will find a back-
ground employment "wiz-
ard" to fill out This is also
one of the important areas
to complete. Don't overlook
this, as employers do
searches on job candidates
using keywords of employ-
ment backgrounds to
search, along with the
Workforce Human Re-
source recruiters.
This is where you need
to use keywords for the
background and resume
information. Keywords
might be job titles, duties,
software or programs, tech-
nology, professional organ-
izations, certifications,
training and so on. If a com-
pany is looking for people
with financial back-
grounds, then have the
word "financial" listed in
keywords on your resume.
In the medical field, have
specific training listed with
credentials, if you are a
nurse or in related occupa-
tions.
It's vital to have a valid,
working e-mail listed in
your Employ Florida Mar-
ketplace registration. Em-
ployers might be searching
for you, but if your e-mail is
not working or you are not
checking your mail, you
will never connect in the
marketplace.
In short, fully registering
on Employ Florida Market-
place means to have a re-
sume posted, employment
background listed with key
words in your career field
and a valid e-mail. Sign up
on www.employflorida.com
from any computer or visit
a Workforce site.

King of the Wing coming up in May


. Second annual event a service to community businesses


Y 4The Second. Annual Citrus
. COunty King of the Wing Competi-
'tibn is in planning stages at this very
ri6ment. What is the King of the
Wing? The King of the Wing is the
-very first event of its kind in Citrus
-tounty and has been created to
bring Citrus County onlybusinesses
together and promote them to our
citizens and consumers.
With a new location each year, the
event draws consumers to areas of
the county that they may not fre-
juent on a regular basis and gives
Stem an opportunity to see what's
Available. Betteryet, the King of the
Wing is a good time to be had by all
,- with wing sampling, beer and
so.a, games for the kids, live enter-
tainment by local favorite Mighty
Mongo and a beautiful scenic loca-
tion at Homosassa Riverside Re-
".sort
Although there is a fee for food
and drink, admission and enter-
tainment is free and attendees have


an opportunity to gain information
from various Citrus County busi-
ness booths that have paid a very
small fee to participate. King of the
Wing is determined by a panel of
"celebrity" judges and a new Peo-
ple's Choice award has been added
this year where visitors can vote on
their favorite booth presentation.
The 2010 trophy is every bit as tall
and proud as last year's and ready
to grace the winner's establishment
for the next year.
Restaurants that enter the King
of the Wing competition pay noth-
ing for that entry and are simply
asked to provide a minimum of 500
wings for sampling, along with
small plates and napkins, as well as
whatever else they care to use to
decorate their 10-foot by 10-foot
space. While money is spent on
staffing and cooking, the advertising
return is phenomenal in that all
participants stay on www.citrusk-
ingofthewing.com for one year until


the next event begins promotion.
That's one year of free advertising,
and that's just the beginning.
The event was purposely sched-
uled for Saturday, May 8, from noon
to 4 p.m. to give participating
restaurants that extra opportunity
to promote their Mother's Day
lunch and dinner specials to more
than 2,000 expected attendees.
Money just doesn't buy the kind of
advertising, exposure and "feel-
good" thatyou can get simply for the
cost of participating in this event
With CCBA's growing reach into the
social networking arena, as well as
the support of the local newspaper
and radio media, the possibilities
for ongoing advertisement for par-
ticipating restaurants and busi-
nesses is endless.
The moral of this story? Don't be
chicken! If you're a business, grab a
booth for a very small fee,;if you're
a restaurant, get your entry in with
great haste. If you're not either one

Area students building the future


Field trip money and sponsors needed


Future Builders of America links
students in area schools with the local
.building community. Guest speakers
ahid field trips to building sites, along
with opportunities for summer and
post-graduation employment help in-
trtduce students to rewarding oppor-
t.iities in the residential construction
industry
Club meetings also provide for ca-
maraderie and an opportunity for stu-
dents to improve their leadership and
teamwork skills.


Students are encouraged to learn
more by joining a Future Builders of
America (FBA) chapter in their
school. Teachers are encouraged to
become FBA chapter advisers and
promote the residential construction
industry as a great professional op-
portunity for Florida's future employ-
ees.
CCBA has partnered with local
schools through FBA chapters and
helps give students a real-world un-
derstanding of what it means to be a


home builder in Florida. We take the
FBA students on field trips through-
out the year.
To help fund these educational ex-
periences for our future builders, we
are looking for field trip sponsors. On
March 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., we
will have a car wash at the Will Con-
struction Building (about one half-
mile north of Howard's Flea Market).
Cost is $5. Come out and support these
future builders who are raising money
for these field trips.
For more information, check out the
CCBA Web site at www.citrus-
builders.com/FBA.php.,

It pays to prepare



for houseguests


Day to day, frugality is simply a
way of life. Maybe you splurge
occasionally, but then you dust
yourself off, regroup and return to
your thrifty ways. It can be particu-
larly challenging to stay frugal when
you have houseguests. They might not
understand your frugality, or it could
,be a shock to their system
when they come for a visit
Being frugal means you
don't want your choices to
adversely affect the people
around you. You want your
guests to enjoy themselves,
be comfortable and re-
laxed, and feel welcome.
What frugal habits do you
stop doing, or how do you Sara
plan your budget, when you
have company? FRU
Here are a few common LIV
changes to plan for.
HEATINGAND AIR: You want your
guests to feel at home. While they can
put on a sweater as easily as you can,
many people aren't used to wearing
layers indoors in the winter or cooling
off with open windows and a cross
breeze versus air conditioning during
the summer. Plan on adjusting the
thermostat accordingly. During winter,
you can still turn down the thermostat
at night and offer extra blankets or
add a heated mattress pad to the bed.
And your thermal curtains, window'
film or draft stoppers will still work
their magic. In warmer months, cook
outside to prevent the house from
heating up, and offer plenty of cold


drinks. You can plan outings so your
home temperature isn't a factor.
ELECTRICITY: You might get away
with some night lights after bedtime
so guests can maneuver if they wake
up during the night, but you'll proba-
bly need more lights on than usual
during evening waking hours. If you're
concerned with having a
much higher utility bill, you
can corral guests into a cen-
tral location to help keep
the number of lights on to a
minimum. Or have a room
- or two that are "off-limits."
This will keep your home
easier to pick up, too. The
TV might be on more for
Noel movies, or the kids might
play video games. You can
GAL counter this by playing
ING cards or board games some
of the time.
EATING: Simple meals are easier
and cheaper. Think: buffet-style
meals, slow-cooker meals or anything
you can make ahead, such as lasagna,
casseroles or soups. If you're tempted
to dine out, you can trim costs by serv-
ing at least one lavish meal at home.
Dessert doesn't need to be fancy. Sim-
ple home-baked quick breads or cook-
ies will be appreciated. Or simply look
for cheaper casual dining that offers
daily specials. Your guests are there to
spend time with you and aren't there
for the food. You can post your menu
plan on the refrigerator, too. This gives

and serving the higher-qual-
ity alcohol earlier in the
evening and cheaper alco-
hol later.
ACTIVITIES: Your guests
will enjoy spending time
with you, but you will all
probably want to get out and
about Look for low-cost fun
such as local parks, hiking
or community events. Your
guests might not know your
city, so you'll probably drive
more or go sightseeing. But
don't feel obligated to enter-
tain them daily. Provide a
map, and give yourself some


downtime and your guests
time on their own, too.

We all have budget
busters. Maybe your budget
is nickeled-and-dimed away
by daily coffee, lunches with
co-workers or movie
rentals, to name a few. But
sometimes you relax with
your finances, and it's big-
ger things that you haven't
kept track of in your budget
So if you haven't taken a
good look at your budget,
now is a good time to start
tracking your spending.
What types of things are
your budget busters? How
do you rein in spending?
Here are a few areas you
want to watch.
GROCERY SHOPPING:
It's easy to fall into the habit
of making frequent trips to
the store to pick up foods
and treats you want or think
you need. Your monthly bill
can increase significantly if
you aren't disciplined. Set
an amount to spend on gro-
ceries, and aim to keep it
within that amount

Tips for maintaining



a healthy heart)


A s we celebrate Valentine's Day by
showering our loved ones with
chocolates and flowers, don't forget
that we also celebrate the "Go Red for
Women" campaign of the American Heart
Association this month to raise
awareness that heart disease is
preventable and the number
one killer of both men and
women! m e, .
There are major risk factors
that research shows signifi-
cantly increase the risk of car-
diovascular disease, and there 54
are contributing risk factors
which are associated with in-
creased risk, but their signifi- Monica
chance and prevalence have not CONS
been pinpointed yet The major SCIE
risk factors can be divided into
two categories: ones we can
change, and ones we cannot Getting older,
being male, and heredity (including race)
are all risk factors that we have no control
over. However, there are many risk factors
that we can control by changing our
lifestyle. The focus of this article will be
on these factors that we can do something


about. Major risk factors that can be con-
trolled:
Tobacco smoke.
Physical inactivity.
Obesity and being overweight.
Diabetes mellitus.
High blood pressure.
High cholesterol.
If you smoke, quit. Talk to
your doctor about your desire to
quit smoking and he or she will
help you. The risk of developing
Coronary heart disease for a
smoker is 2 to 4 times that of
nonsmokers. Exposure to sec-
ondhand smoke increases the
Bonsett risk of heart disease in non-
UMER smokers, too.
NIfCE Engage in regular, moderate
to vigorous physical activity for
at least 30 minutes every day for
adults and at least one hour for kids. Phys-
ical activity helps to control blood choles-
terol, diabetes, and obesity, as well as
lower blood pressure in some people. The

Bellows gets scrutiny; keeping heirlooms in the family


Dear John: I bought this bel-
lows in 1975 at a yard sale
and would appreciate
knowing how old it is and its
value. On the bellows it says
"Made by Funsten
Bros and Co.,
Largest handlers of
raw furs in the :
world St Louis '
U.S." I would apprie-
ciate any informa-
tion on it J.M., "
Beverly Hills
Dear J.M.: Most
hand held bellows
that get bought and John Siko
sold in the antiques SIKORS
marketplace date ATTII(
from the 19th cen-
tury. There is con-
siderable information through
Google on Funsten Bros and Co.
Relative to collector interest, it
does not matter how old your bel-
lows are, since the condition is so
poor. Most collectors would not be
interested in it This is likely the


I)

reason it showed up at a yard sale.
I suspect it makes an interesting
conversation piece.
Dear John: An antique freak
and folk art buff, I have several an-
tiques of worth. Some
items given me by my pa-
ternal aunt are of histori-
cal value. Ruth Herold
(nee de Soto) gave some of
her inherited items to a
Seattle historic museum
and some are on perma-
nent display. She gave me
an ivory scrimshaw walrus
tusk carved to be a crib-
rski bage board made by Es-
KI'S kimo/Inuit during the Gold
Rush Days. The tusk was
valued at $700 about 12
years ago.
I also have some Inuit snow-
shoes that are about the same vin-
tage. They are about 6 inches by 18
inches and perhaps were made as
small "samples" rather than for
use by toddlers.
From the medicines Dr. de Soto


Special to the Chronicle
This bellows was manufactured by Funster Bros. and Co., a well-known
manufacturer of these items. It would likely fetch little collector interest
because of its condition.


used, I have five vials that are
about 120 or so years old. My fa-
vorite one is Dr. Jayne's Carmina-
tive, used for summer complaint,
colic, etc. The stopper cork has a
metal ring in it and the Rx in-
cludes dosages on the paper label
for adults, children, and even in-


fants 6 weeks old and the main
ingredient is opium. The bottle
has about half of the dark medi-
cine still in it!
Over the years, I have pur-
chased several great little an-
tiques that I just had to have,
although they are not heirlooms


from any family; i.e., a watch-
maker's wood cabinet from a store
in Woodstock, several paper-
weights, some old and some new,
and some American-made pottery
mugs bought at art festivals by fa-
mous potters.
So here are my questions and
concerns relative to passing things
on in the family What can one do
about insuring that treasures do
not get sold at some yard sale for
below value prices? How can one
attempt to get young relatives to
appreciate family heirlooms and
their stories? Perhaps you have
some suggestions. -M.S.S., Inter-
net
Dear M.S.S.: It sounds like you
have nice things. It is a good idea
to be aware of current dollar val-
ues, but remember they go up and
down and are not reliable aids to
help insure something is kept in
the family It always helps to write
down an item's history with pen-

cil and paper and keep
them together for posterity.
All one can do is share
one's passion and stories
about the things you wish to
pass on to family members.
Others may or may not
share your passions. Some-
times -heirlooms become
onerous responsibilities to
those not interested; for oth-
ers, family heirlooms are
what connect them to past
generations.

Avid NASCAR fans: Area teachers give a whole new meaning to TGIF


JOHN COSCIA
Chronicle

DAYTONA BEACH By day
they are teachers, administrators
and coaches. But once they leave
the corridors of the Citrus County
school system in which they teach,
they all share one common pas-
sion their need for speed as
diehard NASCAR fans.
For the Tylers, Hamiltons,
Opatzes and millions of fans just
like them around the country,
TGIF means one thing.. it is qual-
ifying day. Unless of course it's
Speedweeks, then it means VACA-
TION or better yet party in
Daytona.
For these three local families,
the week before the running of
the Daytona 500 for the past 10
,-years, (and in some cases much


longer) has meant a time to get
packed and head to stock cars'
most famous track, Daytona Inter-
national Speedway. On this day,
none of them has any thoughts
about who is going to win in the
next day's Super Bowl. They all
have but one concern how will
the 88 finish?
You see, all of them are Dale
Earnhardt Jr. fans and have been
for a very long time. Interestingly
enough, the road they all took in
developing a love for the sport of
NASCAR and choosing their fa-
vorite driver is as unique and dif-
ferent as any others.
For the Opatz family, the kickoff
of Speedweeks means packing up
their 16-foot trailer and waking up
at 1 a.m. on Saturday morning so
that they can be one of the first
trailers allowed inside the infield


for Saturday's Bud Shootout.
"We finally got on the road
about 1:30 in the morning and we
got here to Daytona at about 4:30,"
explains Steve Opatz, an em-
ployee at Florida Power. "That
was good enough to get us the first
spot in line and we got just the
perfect spot The past few years
we have been over by Turn 3 but
my wife (Julie) really wanted to
try and get over here by Turn 4
this year and we made it"
While Julie was busy keeping,
her husband Steve awake on the
trip from Crystal River to Day-
tona, the boys slept in the back -
until they saw the lights of Day-
tona and that woke up Chris
and his best friend Skylar Cato.
For Julie she wears her love of
NASCAR on her sleeve and makes
no excuses for it. In fact all of her


fellow teachers at Crystal River
Primary know how much this per-
manent substitute teacher loves
the sport Well, it's sort of hard to
hide, especially when her lunch
box is a legal-size portable
NASCAR cooler.
"A few weeks ago another
teacher noticed my cooler and
asked if I was a NASCAR fan. I
told her, 'of course, that's why my
lunch box is a NASCAR cooler,"'
Julie explained.
"We love it We just love coming
for the Shootout The crowds are
calmer and more well-behaved
and plus we don't have to worry
about covering Chris' eyes," she
laughs.
In fact Chris, who is now 8 years
old, wears the same hat every
year. It's got autographs of the en-
tire Speed Channel crew on it as


well as Martin Truex Jr. And on
this day Chris has just added Kurt
Busch and Joey Logano's names
to the cap. And this year he has
brought along his next door neigh-
bor Skylar, who is enjoying his
first-ever NASCAR race.
"Chris is a big Junior fan just
like us. He loves the sport," ex-
plains Julie as they stand outside
of their camper. "They're both so
excited. They can't wait for the
race to begin."
But it's the ftnny story that
Julie relates next that is a testa-
ment to how much racing runs
through the veins of the Opatz
family.
. "I mean Chris is only 8 now but
for the first few years of his life he

ofthe Star Spangled Banner
was 'Gentlemen, Start your
engines!' He really did,"
laughs Julie. "He knows
now of course but for a long
time he didn't for the longest
time. He loves to say, 'Gen-
tlemen, start your engines.'
In fact he judges everybody
and the way they say it He
gives them a grade after
they say the words. He'll be
like 'mom, that one wasn't
very good,' or 'Wow, that was
a real good one.'-So far the
best one we've heard in our
opinion is John Travolta's a
couple of years ago."


And Julie ought to know
because last year she actu-
ally won a contest at the Vo-
lusia Mall for the best call of
those most famous words in
all of sports. The passion
that the Opatz family has for
NASCAR is one that has
burned inside of them since
1996 when they came to
Daytona for the first time -
and now that their son has
caught the bug, don't expect
them to look for a cure any
time soon.
And it was a trip to Day-
tona back in the 80s that
reeled Lecanto principal
Kelly Tyler and his wife
Jackie into the NASCAR
fan base.
"I remember it exactly.
Back then you could buy


tickets much cheaper and
you could stand down by the
fence almost on the track,"
Tyler recalls. "We were
standing right near the
start/finish line and all of
those cars just came flying
by and blew off my hat I
was hooked right then and
there. We've been coming
back ever since.
"Back in the day we were
big Bill Elliott fans when he
was driving full-time. We
became huge Junior fans
after the tragedy (when
Dale Earnhardt Sr. died on
the final lap of the 2001
Daytona 500.) We're really
hoping that this year Junior
is able to turn it around,"
Tyler admItted.

And then there's Dave Hamil-
ton and his wife Debbie, who
works in the front office at Cit-
rus High School. For Dave he's
been, as he put it, "a gearhead
since he was a kid." And he and
his wife have been coming to
the Bud Shootout for the past
seven years.
"I drove Go-Kart and Sprint
cars growing up so I've had the
bug inside of me for a long time.
It was just a natural thing to
switch over to NASCAR," Dave
admits. "To me there's just
nothing in the world like it"
The Hamiltons' best experi-
ence since coming to Daytona
happened at the Bud Shootout
selection draw a couple of
years ago.
"We love going to that every
year. It's just a big party and it's


so much fun," said the Citrus
High School teacher, who was
also the Hurricanes girls' golf
coach this year. "Well two years
,ago, Junior gives Debbie his
draw flag. It was number seven.
The next day we see Junior by
his car in the garage and Deb-
bie starts waving the little flag
that he gave her. And he stops
what he's doing and comes over
to see us. That's what makes
this sport so cool. It's the driver
interaction."
In fact, at Media Day last
week, one reporter so dared to
ask Junior, "Since you've been
struggling the last couple of
years do you think you need to
win in order for people to still
consider you as NASCAR's most
popular driver?"
Junior's response was short
and sweet. '"Apparently not!"
The answer brought down the
house as the media members
couldn't help but laugh at Ju-
nior's answer.


"What do you think is the
key? Why do so many people
connect with you," a reporter
asked as a follow up?"
Junior pulled no punches and
remarked candidly, "Honestly
I'm not sure what it is. Obviously
a lot of my fans were fans of my
dad's. I hope it's because they
know I'm just a simple, easy-
going guy I am who I am.
There's nothing fake. But I think
the biggest thing is you have to
treat people right You don't get
a mulligan on being an ass."
And for the Tylers, Hamiltons
and Opatzes, they couldn't
agree more.
"That's a big reason why
we're Junior fans," Tyler admit-
ted. "He's just a good ole coun-
try boy from North Carolina.
What you see is what you get"
All of the educators in atten-
dance would leave the track
happy on this day because their
driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr., fin-
ished second fastest in qualify-


ing and will be starting on the
front row alongside his team-
mate Mark Martin for Sunday's
Daytona 500.
On Thursday night after wit-
nessing the exciting.action of
the Gatorade 150 qualift-ing
races, Tyler declared, "My wife
and I have already decided that
next year we're coming to the
500. I can't wait until this Sun-
day, it should be a great race, es-
pecially if it's as good as the
Gatorades were."
For this pocket of fans, they'll
be hoping to cheer Dale Earn-
hardt Jr. to victory lane. But
whether Junior takes the check-
ered flag or it's one of the other
42 drivers in the field that win
the 52nd running of the Great
American Race, one thing is
clear.
This group of fans from Citrus
County shares at least one thing
in common with the 250,000 in
attendance for Sunday's race -
their need for speed.

Florida turf grasses


here are six species of grasses
commonly used as lawn turf in
Florida: Zoysia, Bahia, St Augus-
tine, Centipede, Bermuda and winter
rye. None are native, although several
have escaped from cultivation to natu-
ralize in the wild. Asian cogon grass, 2
to 3 feet tall, with a half-inch wide blade
with the midrib offset to one
side, may be the most wide- .
spread invasive plant pest
worldwide, according to bi- '
ologist Keith Morin at Crys-
tal River Preserve State
Park. Keith's vigilant cru- /
sade to eradicate cogon grass
. locally shows promising
progress. Spray with a 3 per-
cent solution of glysophate
herbicide when cogon Jane
blades are 6 inches tall after JANI
mowing, or burn in late win- GAR
ter before native plants begin -
to sprout Highly flammable
cogon grass infests some 500 million
acres on all warm continents. Originally
grown for forage, the blades have un-
palatable, razor-like edges.
Bright, emerald-green rye grass ger-
minates in cool fall weather to create a
beautiful carpet of grass for the winter
over a dormant lawn. The entrance to
Black Diamond Ranch on Highway 491
in Beverly Hills is an immaculate ex-
ample. Rye will die off naturally by
April to decompose and add organic
humus to the permanent lawn. The
seed bag may say perennial, but in
Florida, rye does not survive the hot,
humid summers. Any seed not eaten by
birds will rot during torrid summers.
Reseed rye in September or early Oc-
tober if you want to mow all year and
have a lush lawn in winter.

my home as a firebreak and practical,
wheelchair-accessible areas between
planting beds. The grass went dormant
in January's freeze. The remaining tufts
of green weeds died from a spritz of
glyphosate with horticultural oil to make
it stick to the leaves. Since the turfgrass
was not actively green and growing, it
did not absorb the herbicide.
Providing the underlying
soil is amended with fine
compost to retain moisture
and provide nutrients, zoysia
grows in full sun to part
shade. It tolerates deep
weekly watering in summer
if it does not rain. Irrigate
lawns every other week in
cooler weather I mow high,
Weber at 3 to 4 inches only once a
E'S month in summer, and love
DEN the feel of soft, fine grass.
Zoysia takes heavy foot traf-
fic, but if used for a driveway,
protect it with a UV resistant 2.5 cm. grid
on top of the lawn. Turning tires will
crush and tear the blades above the con-
cealed grid, but the grass and roots
below are unharmed. Stadium parking
lots, Queen Elizabeth II's palace park-
ing grounds and a driveway in Black Di-
amond Ranch utilize this type of
protective grid.
In mid-February, broadcast two
pounds per 1,000 square feet of 0-0-8
potash laced with a pre-emergent her-
bicide to kill sprouting weed seeds
without affecting established plants.
Pre-emergent herbicide lasts about
two months. Those weeds then won't

going on right now (it started on Feb-
ruary 1 and runs for five weeks
through March 7), motivates us to in-
corporate more physical activity into
'our daily lives.
Reaching and maintaining a healthy
weight by eating nutritious foods with-
out added calories, fats, sugars or
sodium, and doing regular physical ac-
tivity are also extremely importantto re-
duce the risk of heart disease. People.
who have excess body fat, especially if
it's primarily located around their waist,
are more likely to get heart disease even
if they have no other risk factors.
For the last three major controllable
risk factors high cholesterol, high
blood pressure, and diabetes mellitus
I would encourage everyone to visit
their physician regularly, get screen-
ings, and follow your doctor's advice
to keep these numbers in the normal
range.

heart disease are stress and alcohol

reliever) and avoid using alcohol to
excess.

Take the Guesswork Out

of Fertilizing This Spring


You can have a beautiful yard and be friendly to
Florida's environment. Unneeded fertilizer
applied to lawns wastes money and can pollute
local water bodies, causing harmful algae to grow
and crowd out beneficial plants. A simple soil test -
will tell you what nutrients, if any, your soil is
missing. If your soil has enough nutrients to stay
healthy, fertilizer may not be necessary.

Through February 23, a soil test and expert analysis
are offered free to Citrus County residents (quantities
are limited). Call the Citrus County Extension office
at (352) 527-5700 for more details.
