Dad faces murder charge


21 -year-old reportedly confesses in abuse,

death of2-month-oldson in Inverness


AMANDA MIMS
Chronicle


Authorities arrested an Inverness
man Saturday on charges of first-de-
gree murder and aggravated child


abuse in the Feb. 14 death of his 2-
month-old son.
Preliminaryresults of the baby's au-
topsy performed Thursday listed blunt
force trauma and homicide as the
cause and manner of death.


The suspect, 21-year-old Spencer
Tyson Weaver, of 707 Emery St., re-
portedly confessed to abusing his son,
. Tamarri Weaver, by squeezing, chok-
ing and hitting him in the face with an
open hand. On Saturday, Weaver told
sheriff's deputies he hurt the child re-
peatedly in late January and on Feb.
14, the day the child died. Authorities
had been looking for Weaver since Fri-
day night because Weaver had left
messages for the child's mother


threatening to harm himself.
When deputies located him Satur-
. day, he told them he had abused his
son for several weeks and knew his ac-
ti6ns caused the baby's death, accord-
ing to sheriff's spokeswoman Gail
Tierney.
He admitted to handling the child in
a rough manner, squeezing his ab-
domen and bruising him in late Janu-

ome early settlers of Citrus
County came here for the long
haul, and their descendents re-

cultural heritage runs deep.,
John Thomas, a cattle rancher, can look
back to ancestors who came here before
there was a Citrus County.
"Sharp was my grandmother's maiden
name. They came here in 1881 from
Camilla, Ga.," Thomas said.

County came into being. The land mass
formerly known as Hernando County was
divided into three parts: The northern-
most section became Citrus County and
the southernmost Pasco County.
Thomas' forebears would leave to serve
in the military, such as going off to World
War I, but they'd come back to farm, build
the cattle herd and plant the crops.


"They bought the old homestead in
1940," Thomas said. "We've still got that
land. I wouldn't sell it as long as I'm physi-
cally able to take care of it."
Thomas' father worked the farm, but he
helped. His father told him that he needed
to work outside of the farm because it
wouldn't support all the family. So Thomas
worked in construction most of his adult
life. Since the death of his father, Thomas
has gone back to running the farm as a
cow and calf operation.
"It's the quality of life," Thomas said.
"The money means a lot, but the peace of
mind is more important."

Thorpe, the Citrus County ad-

Warrant Officer Aaron Weaver, who was killed In 2004 In Iraq. See more photos at chronlcleonline.com.


Purple Heart ceremony honors 5 soldiers who gave their lives


AMANDA MIMS
Chronicle
"Never ever forget me; that I
died a soldier's death, to keep you
free with my last breath."
Those were the words written by
U.S. Army Sgt. Dennis J. Flanagan,
who was killed in action in Iraq
four years ago. On Saturday, his fa-
ther, Dennis Flanagan, read the
poem, "A Soldier's Prayer to his
Son," to an audience of roughly '
250 people during the Fifth An-
nual Purple Heart Ceremony at
the Florida National Guard Ar-
mory in Crystal River:,
In the poem, written by the
younger Flanagan when he was in
high school, a dying father asks his
son to be true to himself, love fam-
ily and friends and not to squan-
der his time or youth.
The program served to recognize
the service and sacrifices of Pur-
ple Heart recipients and veterans
everywhere and to honor Flana-
gan's memory and the memories of
four other Citrus Counity soldiers:
Chief Warrant Officer Aaron A.


Weaver, killed in action in Iraq in
2004; U.S. Army Sgt. Dennis J.
Boles, who died on a 10-mile road
march in Kuwait in 2004; U.S.
Army Cpl. Stanley J. Lapinski,
killed in action in Iraq in 2005; and
U.S. Army SgL Robert A. Surber,
killed in action in Iraq in 2007.
Several of the soldiers' family
members were honored guests at
this year's ceremony.
Nancy Weaver, wife of Aaron
Weaver, read a poem called "Pur-
ple Heart" and thanked audience
members for coming to the annual
ceremony, which began five years
ago in Weaver's memory.
"The Weaver family and I are
honored to take part in this," she
said. "It's a really good tribute for
my children ... and they get re-
minded all the time."
The hour-long program included
prayer, music and a lesson in the
history of the Purple Heart, a dec-
oration for those killed or
wounded while serving in the U.S.
military.
"In this facility today are veterans
who have served in World War II,


Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf
War, the Global War on Terror and
other armed conflicts," said Richard
Hunt, a former Marine and combat-
wounded Vietnam veteran who led
the program Saturday. Among them
are recipients of the Purple Heart,
the Army Distinguished Service
Cross, silver star, bronze star and
other medals, he said.
"We are in the company of true
heroes."
Several groups and organiza-
tions participated in the Purple
Heart Ceremony. They included:
Patriot Guard Riders, Nature
Coast Young Marines, Sea Cadets
Manatee Division, Crystal River
High School Naval Junior Reserve
Officer Training Corps, Citrus
County Composite Squadron, West

Artists mapping out a whole lot of local fun


CHRIS VAN ORMER
Chronicle


Outdoor activities in Citrus
County cover a lot of ground and
water and one guide has just
been published that brings it all to-
gether.
Crystal River residents William
Mickey and Terra Stone have pro-
duced the Citrus County Adventure
Map and Guide because they could
not find one source to show all the
county's recreational opportunities.
"We are mural artists, and our fa-
vorite theme is the environment
and the animals that inhabit the en-
vironment," said Mickey, who
painted all the varied illustrations
for the guide that includes a map of
the county with recreation sites,
scenes of outdoor activities and

and is available at businesses, state

County Chamber of Commerce.
With a print run of 33,000 copies,
each business got 400 copies and
3,000 were donated to the chamber,
Mickey said.
"This is a nifty product that keeps
the character of the community in
mind, especially ecotourism," said
Josh Wooten, president and chief ex-
ecutive director of the chamber. "It's
a popular item. We like to help entre-
preneurs showcase their products."
Wooten said the chamber would
use the proceeds from the sale of
the donated guides for charity or
scholarships.
"It's a pretty good little map with
a lot of information," said Nick Rob-
bins, manager of the Crystal River
Preserve State Park. "I'm sure it
will have a positive impact"
As an original idea, the guide
could grow.
"We'd love to do the map through-
out the state," Mickey said. "It lets
us combine art with our love of na-
ture."

ary. He said he was "rough" with
the child when picking him up
and putting him down and would
squeeze the baby's neck and
choke him while burping him.
On Feb. 14, while alone with the
baby, he once again "squeezed the
back of his neck very hard while
choking" the baby, according to
the arrest affidavit. On the same
day, the baby woke up crying and
Weaver said he removed the baby
from the bed "in a rough and
forceful manner" and then
squeezed the baby hard and
shook him. Then he threw the
baby down on his waterbed and
hit him twice on the right side of
his head with an open hand. .
After that, Weaver said he could


tell the abuse had affected the
baby, who was not alert and "was
going in and out of sleep and very
limp," according to the affidavit.
The infant's heart was also beat-
ing very fast
At this point, Weaver said he
was scared and worried because
he knew he had done harm to the
baby but did not call 9-1-1 out of
concern for what he'd done.
Instead, he took the child to the
bathroom and gave him a bath.
While doing so, Weaver hit the
child's head on the sink.
"He saw what he described as
an immediate (effect) with the vic-
tim," according to the affidavit,
and the baby was limp and going
in and out of consciousness.
He then took the baby to the
bedroom and placed him on the
bed in a rough manner. A short
time after that, the baby made a
noise and was very pale. ,

represents the Citrus
County Historical Society,
said the issue is a battle for
control at the historic school
grounds. She said even
though the county owns the
property, its lease gives the
historical society full opera-
tional control.
"I don't think there are
any issues for the county to
resolve," she said.
A coalition of non-profit
groups, headed by the Fam-
ily Resource Center and
Friends of the Citrus County
Library System, sued the
historical society to view
records on how the landlord
spent thousands of dollars
in rent collected since 2002.
The coalition said the
documents are public
records and that the non-
profit historical society is a
public entity because it op-
erates county property for


the county.
The historical society,
while denying that it is a
public body, agreed earlier
this month to allow tenants
to view the financial
records.
So far, the tenants haven't
asked to see them. Thorpe,
however, did just that in a
letter sent to Gaffney.
Gaffney said she would
comply "The county didn't
need to make a written re-
quest," she said. "The his-
torical society would have
provided those documents
anytime in the last eight
years."
Thorpe made it clear in
the letter that he wants the
feuding parties to find reso-
lution.
"I have attempted to me-
diate the issue between
both parties and have been
unsuccessful," he wrote.
Thorpe noted he regu-
larly receives e-mail from
tenants or the Hernando
Heritage Council regarding
disputes, with each party


blaming the other for the
problem.
"Unfortunately the issues
have not been resolved and
the tone and urgency of the
correspondence have esca-
lated," he wrote.
Who's allowed
in courtyard?
Gaffney lays much of the
trouble at the feet of Ginger
West, director of the Family
Resource Center Indeed,
West and Hernando Her-
itage Council chairwoman
Kandice Bellamy McPher-
son have locked horns on
several occasions regarding
a number of issues, from
parking to changing locks.
But the dispute that
brought Thorpe to write his
letter dealt with Friends of
the Citrus County Library,
which also rents space in
the newer of two buildings
at the site.
The Friends are collect-
ing thousands of items for
their mega sale fundraiser
in April at the Citrus County


Auditorium. Conducted
twice a year, in the spring
and fall, these fundraisers
last year netted $85,000 to-
ward the purchase of li-
brary materials, Friends
president Lynne Bolle said.
Hundreds of boxes of
books, CDs and other mate-
rials are brought to the
Friends' office in Hernando,
where volunteers sort and
price them for sale. In the
days prior to the event, a
semi-trailer hired by, the
Friends will haul the items
to the auditorium.
Right now, though, volun-
teers unload their cars at
the office door by driving
around back into a court-
yard. Bolle said that's the
way it's been done for eight
years.
This year,' however, the
Hernando Heritage Council
has attempted to bar vehicle
access to the courtyard.
They say vehicle traffic is
dangerous to children play-
ing outside in a Head Start
program and to a dog-train-


ing class that takes place on
the grounds.
One day last week, an on-
site property manager tried
to stop a county courier who
was dropping off library ma-
terials from entering the
courtyard.
That caught Thorpe's at-
tention.
"Now it involves a county
library courier being denied
access to our own county
property," he said. "I'm tak-
ing this serious now."
Gaffney, who said she
hadn't heard about the
courier issue, said the his-
torical society has every
right to prohibit vehicle. ac-
cess to the courtyard to pro-
tect the public's safety.
A reporter saw a Friends
volunteer unload his car
from the courtyard Thurs-
day morning. Children from
the Childhood Development
Services program played in
a fence-in area under adult
supervision. There was no
other activity.
Gaffney said the lease al-


lows tenants to occupy
space they rent. Anything
beyond that, such as the
courtyard, is controlled by
the landlord.
"The historical society is
trying to maintain an access
area for all users so that
everybody is under the
same rules," she said.
Bolle, whose Friends
group pays about $900 a
year in rent, said the histor-
ical society and Hernando
Heritage Council acts on a
whim with no reason.
"We're doing what we've
always done," she said.
"They're the ones changing
the rules."
Thorpe acknowledged he
doesn't know if the county
has a legal right to interfere
or cancel the lease. But, he
said, something has to give.
"The more inflamed this
gets, that puts more pres-
sure on us to respond," he
said.
"I was hoping negotia-
tions would occur and come
to a resolution."

Weaver said at this point he was
panicked because the baby wasn't
breathing and he started to slap
him in the face.
Weaver "stated that he knew
that his actions toward the victim
and the things he did to the victim
caused the victim's injuries and
death," according to the affidavit.
Authorities responded to the
home just after 1 p.m. that day
and deputies, paramedics and
fire rescue personnel took turns
giving the baby CPR. The child
was first taken to Citrus Memorial
Health System and then airlifted
to All Children's Hospital in St.
Petersburg, where he was pro-
nounced dead at 3:30 p.m.
Tierney said she could not say
who called 9-1-1 because 9-1-1
callers' identities are confidential.
Weaver was taken to the Citrus

held without bond.

CITRus CouNTY (FL) CHRONICLE .


~.


Jimmy Brooks' family has been raising cattle In Citrus
County for at least 100 years.


BRIAN LaPETER/Chronicle


LAND
Continued from Page Al

The people in the county
who farm likely could earn
more money in other en-
deavors, but they say the
lifestyle more than, makes
up for it
"I've been around cattle
all my life," said Thomas's
wife, Ella, a member of the
Rooks family, representing
generations of Florida cat-
tle ranchers.
"Everything west of
(County Road) 491 was cat-
tle," Thomas said.
The land around and in-
cluding Sugarmill Woods
was home to between 15,000
and 20,000 head of cattle be-
longing to the Norris Cattle
Co., Thomas said. Cattle
roamed down to Weeki
Wachee.
"They were the old
Florida scrub cattle,"
Thomas said. "In the 1950s,
they started breeding them
with Angus, Hereford and
Brahma."
Scrub cattle or cracker
cows were descended from
stock brought over by the
Spanish in the 16th century.
After 400 years of natural
selection, scrub cattle have
become resistant to heat,
diseases and parasites.
But for good health,
Thomas said the Brahma is
the backbone of the herd.
He and other cattlemen use
selective .breeding for
healthy cattle, and also use
other breeds, including
Charolais.
"They're just tough,"
Thomas said of the Brah-4
mas, "but I don't mean the
meat is tough. It's tender.
You've got to keep enough
Brahma in your herd. If you
don't, you have to breed it
back in, and it takes 3, 5, 7
years to get Brahma back
into a herd."
He keeps half a dozen
bulls in a private pasture in
Inverness. Four of the bulls
are Brahmas that Thomas
calls frisky as the 1,200-
pound bovines aggressively
tussle for hay and pellets.
Thomas gets to use the
land for grazing, and it helps
the landowner claim an
agricultural exemption on
20 acres.
When Thomas was a
youngster, he and his family
grew lots of watermelon,
cantaloupes and many
kinds of vegetables. They
bought feeder piglets from a
: market in Ocala and sold
them back when the pigs
put on weight
When Thomas retired, he
went back to full-time cattle
ranching, raising feeder
calves that are shipped to
feedlots as soon as they are
weaned and are sold on an
Internet video auction. (
The next generation looks
likely to stay with the family
tradition of ranching in Cit-
rus County. The Thomases
have two daughters who
both have master's degrees
in agricultural sciences
from the University of
Florida. One daughter is an
extension agent with
Sumter County and the
other is a livestock agent for
Lake County.
Through the families of
each of their parents, the
daughters could inherit
ranch land.
"We like keeping the land
together," Thomas said.
"Once it's gone, you can't
buy the land again."


Ranching, mining and
public service mark the
lives of the Brooks family,
who arrived in the county in
the 1800s from Alabama.
James Brooks, also known
as Jimmy, is descended from
William Brooks, the county's
first tax assessor. Brooks' fa-
ther was the county's super-
visor of building
inspections. He was born
and raised in Brooksville,
although the county seat of
Hernando County was
named for another Brooks.
But the family homestead is
in Citrus County.
Brooks' great-grandfather,
the tax assessor, purchased
a 500-acre farm on County
Road 480 in about 1912. As
recently as 1983, according
to Chronicle archives,
Brooks' grandmother, Cora
Landrum Brooks, then 85,
was actively working the
farm as she always had, just
like her parents, Jesse Lan-
drum and Martha Priest
"I was close to my grand-
mother," Brooks said. "She
taught me values of live, as
did my parents. She loved to
hunt. At 80, she killed her
last deer."
Brooks recently retired as
the community affairs pro-
gram -manager for the
Southwest Florida Water
Management District,
where he worked for 35
years. Like his father before
him, who came back from
World War II, was once
mayor of Brooksville and
owned a Ford dealership,
Brooks is getting back to the
land.
"At one time, there were
1,000 acres," Brooks said
about his ranch. "My wife
and I live on the remaining
200 acres."
They have had to sell land
that belonged to his grand-
mother, including her old
house.
"The house was built out
of rough-cut timber," Brooks
said. "The foundation was
solid limestone cut from
caves with a cross-cut saw. I
remember crawling under-
neath and seeing them."
Once sold, the new owner
chose not to preserve the
house.
"Most of our agriculture
has been primarily cattle,"
Brooks said. "At one time,
we had 20 acres of citrus."
He remembers a time
when citrus was a going in-
dustry in the county. But he
also remembers a bad
freeze in 1962 and another
in 1985. Not as many grow-
ers are taking the risk with
citrus these days.
Brooks raises feeder
calves up to 350 pounds to
take to market in Webster.
Then they are transferred to
feedlots.
"We've always had cows,"
Brooks said. "My family's
been doing this for 100
years."
Brooks' oldest son, who is
in law enforcement, lives on
the farm and has a part of
the property.
"He's the only one so far
who has shown much inter-
est," Brooks said.
He has younger children
who could yet decide they
like the rural life. It's a way
of life Brooks finds comfort-
able.
"A lot of people don't
know about agriculture in
Citrus County and its com-
mitment to the community,"
Brooks said. "It may not give
you the biggest reward. It
may not be the best econom-


A Brahma bull looks for more food as Citrus County cattleman John Thomas spreads fresh hay.


ically. But it gives you the
most in personal satisfac-
tion and personal fulfill-
ment, and a lot of personal
freedom."
. Close to her 85th birthday
celebration in 1983, Cora
Landrum Brooks said it


best: "This has been a very
satisfying life. I am truly
blessed. My children and
grandchildren all live here
in Citrus County. We are a
close family and we have al-
ways been close to the
land."

Maxine and Wayne at-
tended Ball State Teachers
College together and chose
the field of education for
their careers. Maxine taught
physical education and
business courses for 38
years in three states. She
loved teaching, but was fi-
nally convinced to retire
and move to her dream
home in Inverness, FL, in
May of 1988.
Maxine was an avid
reader and an animal lover.

joyed opening their home to
many of their "snowbird"
friends who ventured south
each winter. They attended
the First Presbyterian
Church of Inverness. After
the death of her husband in
2003, Maxine made another
major move to her own
home in Cumming, GA, to be
closer to her son and daugh-
ter. While living in Cum-
ming, Maxine became active
in the women's circle at
Cumming First United
Methodist Church. She en-
joyed the company of her
many church friends living
in her neighborhood and
looked forward to joining
them in their once-a-month
dinner group.
Maxine moved to an as-
sisted-living community in
Gainesville in August 2008.
She moved again to Morn-
ingside Assisted Living in
Gainesville in November
2009 and found a wonderful
new family of loving, com-
passionate friends who
helped to care for her in her
final days.

death by her parents; grand-
daughter, Sunshine; sister,
Faustine Lord; and loving
husband, J. Wayne.

Pinxter azalea a long-lived, lovely native plant


A zaleas native to
Florida pink Pinx-
ter, yellow-orange
Florida and .Alabama
Azalea are all rhododen-
dron species in the heath
family There are some 800
species of rhododendron
globally, mostly in the north-
ern hemi-
sphere, the
majority from
China. More
tropical species
inhabit north-
east Australia
and New
Guinea. e
Florida's three
deciduous
shrubs bloom in Jane V
late winter be- JANI
fore their leaves GARI
emerge.
Pinxter
Azalea, Rhododendron
canescens, is available in
native nurseries or by spe-
cial order. Big-box outlets do
not carry it. Pinxter's natu-
ral range is from the south
part of Central Florida
north to North Carolina and
west to Texas in Zones 6 to
9b.
It prefers moist to wet lo-
cations with rich, acidic soil
with plenty of organic
humus. Plant pinxters in
full sun to part shade. The
natural habitats include


river banks and slopes,
verges of swamps, flatwoods
and floodplains.
In the garden, it blends
well in naturalistic shrub
borders and makes a fine
specimen plant beside a
water feature or in a lawn
island bed where it will get
regular irrigation.
The planting bed
needs to be moist
yet well drained.
Azaleas are not
drought-tolerant
plants in cultiva-
tion.
This beauty is
usually a multi-
stemmed shrub
reber that can reach
E'S higher than 10 feet
DEN tall with a similar
spread in the wild,
but it is usually
pruned into a dense, lower
bush by gardeners. It is a
long-lived plant lasting up to
50 years in natural habitats.
Single, simple leaves are
in whorled clusters toward
the twig tips, alternate along
the stems, entire (not lobed
or toothed) and are light
green in color. The bark is
thin and brownish-gray
Seeds are contained in' a
hard, longish capsule that. is
a brownish-red. The plant
can be raised from seed by
patient gardeners. The re-


Pinxters prefer moist to wet locations with rich, acidic soil
with plenty of organic humus.


JANE WEBER/For the Chronicle
The Pinxter Azalea, or Rhododendron canescens, has a natural range from the south part
of Central Florida north to North Carolina and west to Texas.


sulting offspring may have
different color variations

, Enthusiasts like the at-
tractive, highly fragrant
pink flowers. Locally, the
height of bloom season is
late February, in time for
Cracker Days at Rainbow
Springs State Park on U.S.
41 just north of Dunnellon.
Held on the last weekend of
February, this interesting
event has local vendors sell-
ing native plants on the
open area between the free
parking lot and entry
wicket. The demonstration
gardens and water feature
alongside the walkway boast
a wide variety of native and
exotic plants. I will post ex-
plicit, informative write-ups
from the Chronicle near the
plants.
The showy clusters of
flowers look quite delicate
and elegant, but they are
tough and wind resistant.
Individual tubular flowers
are 2 to 3 inches long in
clusters of 15 to 20 at the tips
of last year's strong twigs.


That means gardeners will
prune only after flowering
is finished and seeds are
matured and harvested or
eaten by birds and other
wildlife.
Tubes and buds are a usu-


ally dark, rosy pink A coro-
net of six delicate pink to
white petals flare from the
tube. Long pink stamens
capped in yellow pollen
curve out of the tube flower
to attract insect pollinators

St. Conan's Church


Special to the Chronicle
Sarah O'Connor and Helen Ellison traveled to Scotland and Ireland In August to visit
Sarah's family and see the sights. They drove from Glasgow to Oban and then to
Ayrshire and Helensburgh. And, In Edinburgh, they saw the Edinburgh Military Tatoo
festival. The country roads brought surprises, such as St. Conan's Church on Loch
Awe (pictured here) and a trip to the bonnie banks of Loch Lomand, where the mist
over the water looks like it does in the travel books. They ended up with a short
stop in Dublin before returning home.

In an article titled "Sol-
diers Struggle with Com-

Codey Johnson explains
that civilians don't under-
stand his experience in
war or the challenges he
now faces after returning
home.
The Florida American
Legion understands, and
reaches out to Johnson
and other veterans like
him. We are an organiza-
tion of wartime veterans
who have been there.
We've experienced com-
bat, recovered from
wounds (visible and un-
seen), and faced the diffi-
. culties of reintegrating
into society, relationships
and work We understand
that homecoming is not
an event, but a process of
dealing with issues be-
yond what most civilians
can comprehend.

It's easier

mess than

clean tip
he saying goes that
it's easier to seek
forgiveness than it
is to get permission.
The guy who planted
his luxury boat in King's
Bay a few weeks back
must believe in this
axiom. While no one was
'looking, someone planted
two pilings into the mucky
bottom of King's Bay and
tied a huge powerboat
right in front of someone
else's house.
Now let's remember,
some of the folks with big
houses on King's Bay are
paying $10,000 to $20,000 a
year in property taxes.
(Actually, there is one
homeowner who pays
$43,000 just in property
taxes).
While they pay the big
bucks in taxes, it was quite
a surprise to find out that
no state or local agency
can figure out what to do
with the offending boat
owner. There are scores of
boats in the coastal waters
of Crystal River and Ho-
mosassa that are just

Special to the Chronicle
m rhis- past year my
wife, Amy, and I had
i the honor and privi-
lege to be the campaign co-
,- chairs of the 2010 United
Way of Citrus County
fundraising campaign. It is
with great excitement that
the United Way and the
people and businesses of
Citrus County raised an as-
tonishing $704,733.35 in this
v. campaign year! That truly is
a remarkable figure, made
so unbelievable given the
current economic situation.
With that" amount, the
United Way will be able to
fund all its obligations to its
20 charities. That is so im-
portant, especially when the
need is so great, as it is now.


Please know that every
dollar donated to the
United Way of Citrus
County is returned to Citrus
County charities and stays
here locally Given how
large the amount raised
was, there are numerous
businesses and individuals
to thank
First and foremost, we
would like to thank the con-
tributors, both large and
small. There were dona-
tions made from $5 all the
way to over $225,000. Each
and every donation is much
appreciated and we are
grateful for the contribu-
tion. In particular we would
like to thank the following
organizations:
Publix Supermarkets,
their employees and Publix
Supermarkets Charities -


the largest contributor, rais-
ing $225,581.
Zachary Construction (a
subcontractor at Progress
Energy) and its employees,
which raised $162,052.
Progress Energy and its
employees raised
$94,556.59.
Crystal Motor Car Com-
pany and its employees
raised $27,787.28.
Citrus County School
Board employees raised
$25,897.44.
Citrus Memorial Health
System employees raised
$24,856.
In addition to those
listed, there were many
companies and their em-
ployees throughout Citrus
County that raised substan-

LETTERS to the Editor


All apologies
In reference to a letter to the
editor in the Chronicle on Feb.
12 about the Friends of the Li-
brary and the Homosassa Public
Library staff: As the director of
the libraries, I must say publicly
that I know personally that the
members of the Homosassa staff
pride themselves on great cus-
tomer service, and so we cer-
tainly apologize for any
perceived offense to a patron.
In fact, the staff was devas-
tated by the letter, since they go
out of their way to help all pa-
trons, especially anyone who is
disabled. I know they would not
intentionally treat a patron cal-.
lously.
Staff frequently use carts to
unload donated materials from
patrons' cars. If the library finds
that it cannot use a donated
item, the item typically goes to
the Friends of the Library to
generate money for new materi-
als. This is'how the Friends have
such successful book sales and
make so much money to donate
back to the library. Books the li-
brary doesn't use directly are
used indirectly.
I did remind staff to remem-
ber to take care with communi-
cation so patrons would
understand this. We value our
patrons' donations and their
continued support and want to
give them the best service pos-
sible.
The Friends of the Library are
volunteers who work tirelessly
throughout the year to support
the libraries they love. We en-
courage citizens to consider
joining one of our Friends

Campaign funding
Many people are concerned
abopt the Supreme Court leci-
sioo allowing unions and c rpo-
rati ns to pay for advertisi g.
Yet labor unions have always
openly campaigned to finance
candidates of their choice. At


the same time, corporations
have followed the same path in a
more subdued way
This is allowed to happen be-
cause the average voter re-
fuses to become informed
about candidates. Therefore,
they rely on the expensive ads
they view or receive, or some
associates' decision. As long as
voter apathy exists, why com-
plain about the wealthy corpo-
rations or the conscripted
union funds paying for cam-
paign advertisements?
I would rather see the voting
public become more engaged
and choose the candidate best
suited. This has been my sugges-
tion; however, too many mem-
bers of the voting public and the
Political party leaders find it
easier to just sit on their hands
and let the deep pockets select
our elected officials.

Sill continue to elect officials
ho must do the bidding of those
ho pay for their campaigns
rather than those who mark
their ballots.
There is no use complaining
about corporate and conscripted
union funds determining who
gets elected unless the voters be-
come more active and make the
candidates look to us for their
funding, as well as their election
or re-election. Until voters are
willing to put more effort into
elections, those with money will
own our elected officials. Why
would anyone expect it to be any
different? I

Funny stuff
We're reading the Chronicle today and we
just wanted to make a comment
that after you read Sound Off, then
you don't have to read the comics 1
because that's comedy enough.
Lonely patients
I'd like to make a request to
many people regarding the pa-
tients in the nursing homes and
the rehab centers. Many of these
people have no family or maybe no CAL
friends or no one to come and visit 5634i
them and they are lonely. So I just
request that we take time to spend
a time with them and give them comfort
Sand strength. I notice that in some
churches, sornme -of these patients are able


to attend because someone brings them.
But I also notice that many of these people
go to a church, and so many people bypass
them and never take time to say
UND "hello" or greet them. One day,
many of us might realize the im-
"" portance of taking time to greet
these dear people.
Hospital independence
In reference to Citrus Memorial
hospital and the problems with the
board: Why can't we solve it once
5 and for all and let them become
579 an independent hospital like Seven
S Rivers and most of the hospitals
99 percent in Florida, and
not take any more tax dollars. Be independ-
ent, be on their own and let them prove
that they can be successful that way.


Letters to THE EDITOR


Republicans don't care
The Republicans are pretending to be
populists with their support of the polit-
ical Tea Parties, but in his State of the
Union Address, President Obama pro-
posed to recover a "financial responsi-
bility fee" in plainer English, a bank
tax from the largest and most heavily
leveraged Wall Street firms. Instead of
supporting this responsible tax on the
very institutions that gambled danger-
ously with the money of the American
people, the Republicans sat on their
hands and scowled. Democrats cheered
in support of the tax and whistled. When
President Obama warned that the
Supreme Court's latest decision would
open the political process to mega-cor-
porations and their foreign owners, the
Republicans were so enraged that they
have since accused him of lying.
The Supreme Court decision created
the possibility of unchecked foreign in-
fluence in American political cam-
paigns, a change that would seem
certain to irritate the self-styled super-
patriots of the Republican right If poli-
tics follows money and if the money is
corporate-based, then President
Obama's comments are indeed correct
On both counts, the politics and policy
are subject to reasonable disagreement,
but the facts support the president
More importantly is what both issues,
say about the continuing character of
the Republican Party at a time when its
leaders are counting on the "conserva-
tive populism" of the Tea Party move-
ment to revive the party's fortunes.
Republican candidate Marco Rubio
has been highly critical about any at-
tempt to tax the bankers. Unfortunately,
the more Republicans claim to change,
the more they remain the same. While
they wrap themselves in dubious pop-
ulism, the more they defend the wealthy
and powerful without respect to na-
tional interest
In 2009, the Republican Party packed
"20 years of obstruction" by trying to fili-
buster nearly every single piece of legis-
lation that has come up for a vote. For the
sake of their party and not the sake of the
American people, Republicans have tried
to filibuster more legislation in 2008 than
in the entire 1950s and '60s combined.
Populists care about the interests of
ordinary people, but to the Republican
Party, ordinary people are not worth
caring about

Return of Aristide
There have been reports on the Inter-
net and on TV that Haitians are asking
for the return of Jean Bertrand Aristide,
the Catholic priest who worked with and
for the very poor. He was considered a
dangerous radical because he advocated
raising the minimum wage. In 1991,67
percent of Haitians voted for Aristide. In
the coup that followed, Emmanuel Con-
stant, who killed thousands of Aristide's
supporters, was reported by the New
York Times to be paid by our CIA.
When Operation Restore Democracy
was launched by the Clinton administra-
tion in 1994, Henry Kissinger and fellow
consultants Scowcroft and Eagleburger
said Aristide was unstable. Richard
Cheney and Elliot Abrams found an old
CIA disinformation written to support
the oligarchy that said that Aristide, a
priest and a psychologist, had seen a
shrink


Haitians danced in the streets when"
Aristide was returned in 1994, but the,
Clinton administration restoredA4i' tdd'e
to office but not to power. He proposed
an increase in the minimum wage from
33 cents to 50 cents an hour and the U.S.,
which had spent 100 million in the 1980s
promoting Haiti as a low-wage mecca,
was furious. During that decade Haitian
wages were reduced 40 percent
As Aristide struggled with the oli-
garchy and the U.S. corporations, he re-
alized that the Church hierarchy took a
dim view of liberation theology and did-
n't support him. So, before he was again
ousted from the presidency, he aban-
doned the priesthood.
The Dominican Republic massacred
more than 10,000 Haitians in 1937 and in
1990 crossed the border to capture ,*
Haitians and force them into slavery in
the cane fields. But in this recent crisis,
Dominicans have been, in a true spirit
of brotherhood, working to aid Haitians.
I have no idea whether Aristide would
consider returning to Haiti but I have a
gut feeling that, if he believed the corpo-
rations would negotiate in good faith
this time, it would be like Charlie Brown
believing that this time Lucy would hold

Hospital accountability
I have found it challenging to under-
stand the Citrus Memorial hospital dis-
pute. Your recent articles (Thursday, Feb.
11) have helped to put in perspective.
It appears that there is a governor-ap-
pointed board of trustees that has the '"
power to tax Citrus County residents to
fund indigent care at the hospital along
with possibly other things. There.is a hos-
pital foundation that operates the hospital.
' Apparently, the foundation and the
trustees do not agree on various aspects of
the overall process and who is ultimately
responsible for the management of the fa-
cility Your article indicated that the.. ; (,
trustees wanted a budget and strategic plan
before providing funding to the foundation.,
My first concern is accountability If tax
dollars are being provided, there must be
documentation in the budget request to
support the desired funds. How can the
trustees set a millage rate if they do not
have a clear understanding of the need?
Secondly, the idea of an appointed
board having taxing authority is not a com-
forting feeling. All taxing should be done
by elected officials. If the trustees are not
elected, then their budget should be ap-
proved by the elected county commission-
ers. We had a small dispute in our history
regarding taxation without representation.
Rep. Ron Schultz has a problem with com-
mission review since it would interfere
with the trustees being an independent
special district I have a problem with any
independent special districts that are not
directly responsible to the electorate.
I find it difficult to understand how the
foundation thinks it can request public
dollars without documentation and pro-
jected needs. The idea of a blank check
must go out of government There has
been too much of this mentality in Citrus
County by some of our elected officials. I
have no problem paying taxes if the need
is legitimized by documentation and justi-
fication. The concept that "I exist, thus I
should have" is not acceptable and should
be rejected by all taxpaying citizens.

Creating a future


for Citrus County's


children and families


PHIL KOFMEHL
Special to the Chronicle
having just completed more
than 30 years of volunteer
service on the Citrus Memo-
rial Hospital boards, I'm keenly
aware of the partnership that is re-
quired between doctors, administra-
tors. and governing boards in order
foni Citrus Memorial and its outpa-
tient facilities to operate in an effi-
cient and high-quality manner Years
of 'hard work by dedicated physi-
cians, staff and community volun-
teers have resulted in the hospital's
current high-quality VHA ratings and
prestigious specialty accreditations.
t would hate to see these and fu-
ture achievements in health care ex-
cellence fall victim to the personal
agendas that are at the heart of the
current infighting. Before the dam-
age is irreparable, I would like to
offer.some perspective.
A& recent letter to the editor at-
teipted to outline why the doctors
ari "right" and why the hospital is
"wrong." That is not how this issue
should be examined because, in real-
ity, as long as there have been public
hospitals and private-practice physi-
cians, there has been competition.
The economics of modern-day
health care practically guarantee dis-
co4 ,In a nutshell, here's the situa-
tio4 across the country, not-for-profit
hospitals like Citrus Memorial strive
to offset the incredibly high costs of
caring for the sickest of patients -
those requiring hospitalization and
ongoing care by offering treatment
and services that are somewhat more
profitable. Since Medicare, Medicaid
and most insurance plans don't come
close to covering the cost for hospital
care, providing comprehensive care,
including a mix of revenue-produc-


ing services, is really the only way a
public hospital can survive.
Not surprisingly, private-sector clin-
ics and outpatient medical centers
operated by private-practice doctors
are interested in precisely those
same revenue-producing patients.
It's easy to see how this dynamic re-
sults in the endlessly repeated battle
for the slim portion of the health care
sector that produces revenue.
Regardless of personalities or legal
dramas, this economic reality is the
source of the discord. Unfortunately,
debate about these issues has turned
intensely personal, and has put us in
danger of overlooking a key factor:
the comprehensive care provided by
Citrus Memorial should not be
viewed only as an entry on a balance
sheet Instead, we need to remember
that Citrus Memorial is serving real
people, from the chronically ill and
elderly, to countless needy families
and vulnerable children.
This county desperately needs its
tax-funded hospital. Citrus Memorial
delivers excellent care in a compas-
sionate setting, providing a critical
safety net for a huge portion of Citrus
County citizens. Citrus Memorial is a
key community asset, and one that
each of us should be supporting.
This is not about taking sides. In-
stead, we should be focusing on the
future of Citrus County, and the
legacy of public health, wellness and
quality of life that we are creating for
our children and grandchildren.

a member of the Citrus Memorial
Hospital Foundation Board for
many years, and also served multi-
ple terms as a gubernatorial ap-
pointee to the County Hospital
Board of Trustees.-


Pageant's cancellation


means lost opportunities

for girls, young women


DEE DEE PIERCE WILCOX
Special to the Chronicle
I was disappointed to learn that this
year's annual Miss Citrus County Schol-
arship Pageant has been canceled due to
dwindling participation. I hope. to inform
young ladies about the benefits of partici-
pating in.the pageant by sharing my reward-
ing experience.
SWhen I was a little girl I attended the Miss
Citrus County Pageant, which was held the
first night of the fair. It was glamorous and ex-
citing. Right then' I decided that when I was
old enough I would compete in hopes of re-
ceiving the coveted crown and continuing in a
tradition of representing my community in
which I have so much pride.
In 1981,1 was privileged to be sponsored by
the Citrus Shrine Club, which paid the $25 fee,
and along with 21 contestants, we practiced for
two weeks learning the technicalities of being
in a show, including the opening number and
how we would compete in the swimsuit, inter-
view, evening gown and talent competition.
On the night of the pageant, the auditorium
was filled to capacity. In attendance were the
directors of the fair, Tri County Chamber of
Commerce representatives, Citrus County
commissioners, other public officials, family
members, sponsors, friends, reporters, for-
mer and future contestants. The next day it
was front-page news on the Citrus County
Chronicle, the Ocala Star-Banner, the St Pe-
tersburg Times and The Tampa Tribune's Cit-
rus edition.
I was honored to be crowned Miss Citrus
County 1981. It was an incredible experience!
Reigning over the fair was just the beginning.
I traveled all over the state representing Cit-
rus County. There were parades, ribbon cut-
tings, festivals and fundraisers. I was on,
television, the radio and in the newspaper. I
met celebrities, mayors, senators and other
dignitaries including Miss Universe, Miss USA
and Miss Florida.
I did some modeling and even made a com-
mercial. I made special friendships and re-

ceived life-changing opportunities through
business contracts, not to mention the charac-
ter building that comes from being in the com-
petition.
I am so proud to have been Miss Citrus
County It was the most amazingyearof my life.
I want others to have these unforgettable
memories. Every girl should have the oppor-
tunity to be Miss Citrus County.
It is so sad that this year an opportunity has
been taken away We as a county should take
more pride in our community and make sure
the Miss Citrus County Pageant is continued in
the future.

Kudos, Chronicle


RICHARD HIRSCH
Special to the Chronicle
he editorial board of the Chronicle
deserves commendation for its
courageous editorial titled "Cooper-
ation essential to help homeless" (Jan. 26).
If one followed the spectacle recently in
Tampa when the Catholic Diocese of St Pe-
tersburg attempted to mount a program for
the city's significant homeless population,
the need for a concerted effort to deal with
the very serious problem of homeless and
destitute families living in the street in a
major American city is self-evident and
unresolved.
My comments are restricted to the issue
of homeless young people with whom I've
had some experience. The problems of
homeless families pose other challenges.
When some years ago Covenant House -
an international childcare facility that runs
shelters and job-training facilities'in six
countries across 26 facilities, two of which
are here in Florida set out, to open a
homeless shelter for the young people of Or-
lando, the response was similar The city sim-
ply denied there was a homeless problem
among its young people, and claimed that the
city pavilion, open on four sides with rectan-
gular demarcations for young people to sleep
on bare cement, was adequate shelter in any
event Covenant House finally had to set up
its childcare center just over the city line, but
at the end of a bus line, making the facility
accessible to these kids. Opposition came not
only from the politicians but from the "not-
in-my-neighborhood-you-don't" folks.
The point is, as your editorial suggests,
that our community had best prepare its
case well if this problem is going to be given
more than lip-service here in Citrus County.
Some of the elements of that strategy
might include:
A thorough study to determine the
scope of the problem in our community.
How many young people are there in Cit-
rus County who are, in fact, homeless?
Athorough review of the organizations
currently serving these young people. Are
their facilities and resources sufficient for


the task? Do they provide services for sin-
gle teenage mothers?
In consultation with these service or-
ganizations, seek a broad-based and inte-
grated structure that works in unison (not
in competition) to solve the problem.
M At the beginning of this effort, establish
ongoing sources of support, both private
and public, to make sure that the proper re-
sources are available for these tasks.
Address the two over-arching needs of
homeless young people: immediate shelter
and longer-term job training, which leads to
career-path employment So often efforts to
assist young people end with temporary
shelter and immediate food assistance, sim-
ply a Band-Aid. Covenant House has em-
ployment training for job skills as diverse as
computer literacy (e.g., secretarial training),
security guards, nurse aide training, build-
ing maintenance (cleaning office buildings
with professional equipment), etc.
It has been well documented that the
needs of homeless young people are differ-
ent from those of adults. Homeless young
people should not be lodged with adults for
obvious reasons. Covenant House has doc-
umented the fact that the majority of home-
less young people are, in fact, victims,
abused by the very people who were sup-
posed to be their caregivers, often their
own families and relatives.
In working with homeless young people it
is documentable that once a young person
has a marketable job skill they have the be-
ginnings of self-respect and of an investment
in their own future. Perhaps for the first time
in their lives they have something to lose.
Of course all these programs cost money.
Our community has a simple choice: either
help equip these young people for adult
lives that are both rewarding for them-
selves and a contribution to our commu-
nity; or, spend that money later on a prison
system to house them. .

Get educated
In today's Chronicle (Feb. 15), Mr.
William Allen commented in a letter on
the sad state of education in our nation.
He is absolutely correct I travel a lot -
in the past year to Argentina (twice),
Chile, Germany (twice), Austria (twice)
and Brazil. My friends in these countries
all speak fluent English plus a couple
more languages. In 20081 I went to give
some aid to a backwater school in a little
village in,the Ukraine where they did not
have running water or indoor plumbing
- but every student in every grade had
an English textbook My daughter just
graduated the Citrus school system and
many times there was only a "classroom
textbook" and the students did not have
one of their own to take home to study
Mr Allen lightly touched on the biggest
problem, political correctness. When I was
a student in a small school in a big city sub-
'urb, all students began the day in the main
hallway as two trumpet players from the
school band played the national anthem;
then we all said the Pledge of Allegiance.
Can't do that now; God forbid, some
dummy might be offended. Who cares
about patriotism or school spirit? All must
suffer so we don't offend one prima donna.
I publish a monthly magazine on
World War II submarine and espionage
history and have subscribers in 76 coun-
tries. Thanks to the runaway cost of
postage, we began sending the magazine
electronically via the Internet. I had no
complaints from anyone even in coun-,
tries like Iceland, Colombia, Poland;
Mexico or Kenya. The complaints all
came from subscribers in the United
States. So many don't even know how to
use a computer for the simplest thing
like e-mail while people in other coun-
tries are computer-savvy, even in little
farm villages in the Ukraine.
We better go back to teaching perti-
nent subjects like the "Three Rs," along
with American history, and forget politi-
cal correctness. Right now, the tail re-
ally is wagging the dog.

Practical vs. educated
In his Feb. 15 column, Leonard Pitts
complained about the criticism Mrs.
Palin leveled at the arrogance and con-
descension that the liberal intelli- .
gentsia permeating President Obama's
Administration and Congress have
demonstrated. He claimed that this at-
titude does not exist, but he argues
using arrogance, condescension and
insults.
The president recently said that in
times of economic hardship people
must cut back I agree. But he then pro-
posed a record-setting budget for
spending and debt
Mr. Pitts states the issue isn't about
ideologies, it's about a choice between
those with intelligence and the opposite,
educated liberals versus uneducated
conservatives. I would say it's about
people who have spent their lives in ac-
ademia or politics versus people with
practical experience, theory versus re-
sults. Education really has little to do
with it and he fails to understand or ac-
knowledge that a formal education does
not guarantee intelligence or the ability
to develop practical solutions.
When people protested the actions of
President Bush, they correctly claimed
they were exercising their rights. Now
that people are protesting the policies of
President Obama, Mr. Pitts character-
izes those protesters as incoherent and
unintelligent, and akin to conspiracy
. theorists. That is not only arrogant and
condescending; it is insulting to the mil-
lions of tea party participants from all
political parties who have voiced their
dissatisfaction with President Obama's
policies.
So, give me people with "mother wit"
who understand practical solutions and
are willing to listen to those for whom
they serve. Those people have spoken
loudly in the recent elections. An intelli-
gent discussion of the issues is needed;
the arrogance and condescension of "
politicians and Mr. Pitts is.not

Chronicle
The Citrus wrestling team
sent just two representa-
tives to the Class 2A
Wrestling Finals in Lake-


land on Friday and Satur-
day The Hurricanes, de-
spite the small number,
made the most of the lim-
ited amount of participants.
Freshman Taylor Jackson
and junior Casey Whitton
each took home medals Sat-
urday from the Lakeland
Center for Citrus, with Jack-
son taking third place in the
160 pounds division and
Whitton finishing sixth at 152.
Although the Hurricanes
had a state champion in
2009 in the form of Craig'


Barker, this is the first time gion 2A-2 meet
since 2008 that Citrus can Jackson wasn't disap-
boast multiple plac- pointed in'his place at
ers at the high- -- all, especially
est level. when taking,
Jackson, into ac-
who grap- count the
ples with a two grap-
skill level plers that
well beyond his finished in front
years, went 4-1 in of him.
Lakeland. Jackson's only "I'm pretty happy with
loss came in the semifinals third," Jackson said, "con-
to Oviedo's Erin O'Dell, who sidering one of the guys was
also bested the Hurricane the returning state champ
the week before at the Re- and the other was the kid


that finished third in 3A last
year."
The Citrus freshman
clinched the third-place
medal with a 2-0 decision
over Basil Minto in the
wrestleback finals.
Jackson finished with the
most wins in Citrus
wrestling history at 57-3 and
Porcelli said he sees only
bigger achievements in the
freshman's future.
"Taylor wrestled really
well and had an outstanding
tournament," Porcelli said.


"He really put on a show
this weekend."
Whitton began the tourna-
ment 3-1 before dropping
his last two matches, includ-
ing the fifth-place match to
Givanny Occasio.
Whitton, a junior, wasn't
exactly celebrating his fin-
ish but was able to put his
accomplishments in per-
spective afterward.
"Well, .obviously it's not
the ultimate goal," Whitton

Ski jumping
Switzerland's Simon Am-
mann won the large hill to be-
come the first ski jumper with
four individual Olympic titles.
.. Ammann put down the best
jump in both rounds. He-used -
his disputed bindings again,
beating four Austrlans who
weren't happy about his equip-,
ment.
Polish veteran Adam Malysz
took silver, and 20-year-old
Austrian Gregor Schlierenzauer
earned bronze the exact
same finish as in the normal hill
jump a week ago.
Cross.Country skiing
Marcus Hellner of Sweden
won the men's 30-kilometer
pursuit, pulling away from three
rivals after entering the ski sta-
dium and building enough of a
lead to sprint alone to the finish.
He was timed in 1 hour, 15
minutes, 11.4 seconds. Ger-
many's Tobias Angerer finished
2.1 seconds behind for the sil-
ver medal. Sweden's Johan
Olsson took the bronze, 2.8
back.
Curling
Both American teams are on
-winning 'streaks after rough
starts.
The women have won two
straight matches after opening
0-3. Debbie McCormick's U.S.
team beat Britain 6-5 in an
extra 11th end. "
The men also won in an
extra end, beating Sweden 8-7.;
A loss would all but have elimi-
nated the Americans from
medal contention.
Freestyle
The finals for women's
freestyle aerials will be missing
defending champion Evelyn
Leu of Switzerland.
Leu fell on her second of two


jumps in the qualifying round
and did not make the final 12.
AlI Tsuper of Belarus won the
qualifying, followed by China's
Li Nina, the 2006 silver medal-
ist.
No American had advanced
pasfqualifying since. 1998. -This
time, three made it to the
Wednesday's final: Emily Cook,
Lacy Schnoor and 16-year-old
Ashley Caldwell.
Men's hockey
Romano Lemm scored 2:28
into overtime to lift Switzerland
to a 5-4 victory over Norway.
Tore Vikingstad's third goal of
the game had sent Norway into
overtime. Norway and Switzer-
land will have to win their next
games to reach the quarterfi-
nals.
Marian Hossa scored early in
the second period, helping Slo-
vakia rout winless Latvia 6-0.
The Slovaks will have to win
Tuesday to earn a quarterfinal
spot.
Luger's death
Thousands of mourners
flocked to the yard of Nodar
Kumaritashvili's family for a
traditional funeral in Bakuriani,
Georgia. Inside the two-story,
brick home, the body of the
21-year-old luger lay in a cof-
fin, surrounded by Orthodox
Christian icons and burning
candies. A choir sang chants
and a portrait of the Olympian
hung on the wall. His father,
David KumaritashVili, stared at
the picture.
"I wanted to throw a wedding
feast for you," he said. "Instead,
we have a funeral."
The 21-year-old luger died
in a crash hours before the
opening ceremony. He is to be
buried in the cemetery of a
tiny church in the snowy
Alpine village.

for next season to go along
with other experienced
wrestlers like Fred Drew
and Aaron Zuckley.
The 2009-10 campaign
was expectedly brutal for
the Hurricanes, who made
the jump from Class 1A to
2A. The region Citrus found
itself in was particularly dif-
ficult as many of the
wrestlers the Hurricanes
faced in that tournament
competed for or won state
titles on Saturday
"This move will ulti-
mately help our program,"
Porcelli said. "The kids will
have to get better quickly"

Today's HOROSCOPE


p mt m tb e-


Birthday: Before considering a career change in the year
ahead, be sure that you have exhausted all possibilities for
growth inside your present field of endeavor. Chances are
some exciting developments could surprise you.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Without interference, you're
capable of handling difficult developments. When others
butt in, however, they're likely to throw you off track and
cause trouble.
Aries (March 21-April 19) If you're trying to make a
convincing point, stick to the cold, hard facts. Fabricating
the truth will only arouse opposition from your listeners if
they suspect.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) Using strong, realistic tactics
should work well in all commercial dealings, but when it
comes to negotiating something with friends, warmth and
sentimentality are the way to go.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) --All your good Intentions,


plans or ideas will be for naught if you fail to execute them
as outlined. If you want success, be sure that your actions
do not deviate from the blueprint.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) Be extremely selective when
it comes to revealing confidential information either to a
business associate or a friend. If the wrong person gets
hold of it, your words could be twisted.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Be exceptionally careful about
how you deal with a friend regarding an issue over a
shared expense. If the situation isn't handled correctly, you
could lose both your pal and your money.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Allies might support you but
only up to a point with regard to your personal ambitions. If
you overstep the limit and ask too much of them, you'll be
left standing alone.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Competitive games should be
played merely for the fun of the challenge, especially with


friends. Be extremely careful that you do not use it as a
measurement of who is the better player.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) In order to enjoy yourself
with whatever you choose to do, you must keep your mind
focused. If you're trying to do one thing but would rather be
somewhere else, you won't have any fun.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You'll have plenty of en-
thusiasm to pursue an idea, but if you are an uninspired fin-
isher, the desired result Is likely to fall short. Know what you
want, and be tenacious about it.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Getting along with people
you see every day shouldn't be problematic. But when it
comes to a boring social obligation, unless you have a
good attitude about it, you could be unfriendly.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You're likely to have a hard
time managing your resources, so when it comes to han-
dling the funds of others, keep your hands off.

Don't let fear affect success with your dreams


Is fear paralyzing you into not
pursing your dream? One of the
biggest obstacles to starting a
business is fear. The start-up phase
of a new business is exciting and
also the most trying. Fear stops
many before they even begin and
many afterward.
Yes, there are justifi-
able reasons to be fear-
ful. The economy is soft
and many new busi-
nesses fail. You might be
walking away from a job
you already have, and if
you do not succeed you
could have a hard time
finding another. You
question if you have
what it takes to make a Ken
business successful ASK S
the skill set, the finances,
the ability to attract customers. The
biggest fear of starting a business is
the fear of uncertainty and failure.
It is natural to be nervous,
stressed and fearful of starting a
business as you take responsibility
for your own. destiny and future;
however, this fear of failure can be
useful as it causes one to research


?


and plan and to be alert to potential
pitfalls, thereby avoiding problems
before they arise.
A carefully laid out business plan
with honest cash flow forecasts re-
duces the stress and anxiety of the
start-up phase, which in turn re-
duces the fear factor. Going .into the
project,.you must be real-
istic about the timeframe
for your business to be-
come successful and
profitable. Unrealistic
goals put undue stress on
the owner as anticipated
cash flows do not materi-
alize.
Lack of start-up capital
to keep the business and
arrott your personal needs
CORE afloat until the business
is profitable is one of the
biggest causes of new business fail-
ures. A part-time business while
continuing at a day job is a less
stressful beginning and a way of al-
lowing the business to develop
while continuing to draw a steady
paycheck.
One of the biggest obstacles in
self-employment is also one of the


advantages. You are your own boss.
This is what motivates many to start
a business but also causes many to
fear it. Typically the start-up phase
of a new business is outside of one's
comfort zone and familiarity. There
is no boss to set order and structure
and to guide you. The new business
operation is most likely a low-bud-
get, low-volume operation with no
security or stability and unlike em-
ployment situations to which you
are accustomed.
Many do not anticipate this in the
planning phase but encounter it
once the business starts, thereby
creating stress and fear. The way
around this is to set specific, achiev-
able goals to keep yourself account-
able and on track. Using short-term
goals whether they are daily,
weekly, or monthly, creates struc-
ture, drives business, and reduces
the stress and fear of being the per-
son responsible for the success or
failure of the business.
Even a successful business en-
counters failures. It is not the fail-
ure but the learning opportunities
that come from it, what do to and
what not to do next time that actu-


ally creates success. Coca-Cola
changed the recipe for Coke in re-
sponse to consumer's preference
for the taste of Pepsi. The public
boycotted and demanded the return
to the original Coke. Eventually the
company gave in and went back to
the original recipe.
They failed miserably on their
new product, but scored a major
marketing coup by bringing back
the original as "Classic Coke" in a
market campaign responding to
consumer demand. Updating your
business plan and adjusting to
changing market conditions is part
of the process of good planning and
good business.
One of the best methods of taking
the stress out of the decision to go
into business or not is to surround
yourself with knowledgeable advis-
ers. No man is an island. Consider
utilizing a group of advisers or a
one-on-one business coach to teach
you to be successful.

B&W Rexall Drugs
Life South Community Blood Centers asked
Ken Heimann, pharmacist and owner of B&W
Rexall Drugs, to host another Life South Blood
Drive. The first time the drug store hosted the
blood drive was in April 2009, with 29 actual do-
nations. At the Feb. 9 Life South Blood Drive,
there were 49 signed up with 38 donations
made. That is a fantastic response from the
community and especially for an independent
pharmacy when only eight donations are nec-
essary for a blood drive.
Usually, large corporate supercenter stores
average 17 donations. With the energy that
B&W Rexall Drugs puts into its promotions to
support a good cause is always very impressive
and it shows in the community. This Tuesday's
blood drive was well appreciated and once
again, B&W Rexall Drugs takes Best of Show!
Ken was honored by the city of Inverness for
being a lifetime donor. Knowing his rare blood
type and the demand for it, Ken has given ap-
proximately 17 gallons during the past 20 years.

have the advantage of dis-
cussing your ideas and
plans, and getting input
from those with the experi-
ence to provide guidance
and advice.
Conversely, negative
thoughts bring self-doubt,
paralyzing fear or, ulti-
mately, failure. Avoid those
who have a negative bias to
your ideas; it could leave
. you feeling exhausted and
defeated. This is not to say
that you should surround
yourself with "yes men," as
all sides of your business
plan need be examined.
During the economic
times we are experiencing,


it is more important than
ever to choose the right
business to start, one that
meets consumer's needs.
This reduces the risk of the
venture and reduces your
fear. Being a business
owner is fulfilling and re-
warding financially, with
hard work and risks in-
volved. But with careful
planning you can reduce
the risk, fear and uncer-
tainty, and avoid being par-
alyzed into non-action.
The story of one of the
greatest Americans of all
times is a chronological
travel through failure and

money saved to increased em-
ployee morale and retention.
1. Cool it: According to the
most recent statistics from the
Center for Sustainable Systems,
space cooling accounts for 11
percent of total electricity con-
sumption in commercial build-
ings. For optimal wintertime Joan Bi
savings, experts recommend FLOI
setting thermostats to 68 de- FRIE
grees during work hours and 55
degrees after hours. Stay on LIV
track with a programmable
thermostat. HVAC maintenance matters,
too: You and your landlord should seal
leaky ducts, change filters and have your
contractor come out to do annual tuneups.
2. Screen save: Don't let the save in
screensaver fool you: Computers and
monitors are energy hogs, which means
they drain cash, too. Turning computers
off after work and enablifig power man-
agement and sleep-mode features can
slash both energy use and the cost associ-

vest in "smart" power strips,
like the ones available
at wattstopper.com.
3. Cut paper: The paperless
office will it ever be? Not
when the typical worker uses
almost 12,000 sheets annually.
Do without paper where possi-
ble: Distribute memos via e-
mail and review documents on
adshaw your computer screen. When it
IDA- comes time to hit "print," use
MDLBY both sides of recycled paper.
And make it easy to recycle
ING again by putting well-marked
bins at every desk and in com-
mon areas. Haven't established a pro-
gram? See the how-to guide
at paperrecycles.org, which makes a good
case for recycling: Every ton of recovered
paper saves 3.3 cubic yards of landfill
space.
4. Shed light: Lighting represents 24
percent of all the energy consumed in the
commercial building sector, according to

Examing an old painting; postcard nostalgic, but is it valuable?


Dear John: I would like
any information you can
give me on the oil paint-
ing in the photograph. The
painting, without the
frame, measures 29
inches by 45 inches.
In 1940, my mother
purchased this paint-
ing at a rummage
sale in the city of
Chicago. C.G., In-
ternet
Dear C.G.: The
photograph you in-
cluded of your paint- John S
ing is not very SIKOR
helpful. Based only ATI
on the single photo-
graph, it appears
your painting is perhaps Dutch
and done in the late 19th cen-
tury. To give you a better guess,
send at least two clear views of
the front taken in daylight from
the left and right If the back is
covered with paper, remove it
and examine the canvas and
frame for possible notations


and then take a photograph.
Then perhaps I can be more
helpful.
Dear John: I have been a fan
of yours for a number
of years and love
reading all the inter-
esting information
about items people
have. I now seek in-
formation about a
postcard I have.had
for years and kept in
my safe deposit box. I
remember this card
korski as a child and would
SKI'S like to learn more
tiC about it, as well as if
it has any value other
than sentimental.
The card was sent by my fa-
ther from New York to his fa-
ther in what was then
Czechoslovakia. I think my fa-
ther must have gotten the card
back, after his father's death, on
a trip we took there when I was
8.
One side of the card is made


into a frame with a Swiss em-
broidered fabric that says it was
made in the U.S. Roughly trans-
lated, it reads, "Greetings from
America," and has a Czech and
U.S. flag, along with a Czech
shield. On the correspondence
side is a stamp dated 10/8/1928.
I can also see the words flight,
United States and Germany
Handwritten in one corner is
Graf Zeppelin. Perhaps the en-
closed pictures provide more
information for you. I would ap-
preciate any information you
can provide. L.K, Hernando
Dear LK.: No doubt your
postcard is far more valuable as
a family heirloom than the dol-
lar value. Woven silk and em-
broidered postcards were
produced in massive quantities
during the first three decades of
the 20th century They are a fun
category to collect within the
large world of postcard collect-
ing and very affordable. They
generally sell in the 50 cent to
$3 range, with some fancy ex-


amples in the $5 to $10 range.
Dear John: A friend of mine
has an antique lorgnette which
she used to use as readers. The
spring allowing the handle to
fold has failed. Google has
failed me. Do you know of any
place which may be able to re-
place the spring? -R.H., Inter-
net
Dear R.H.: Lorgnettes are
fancy eyeglasses with a short
handle on one side. They fold in
when closed then flip out by
pressing a button. Some were
very simple and others made of
precious metals encrusted with
gemstones or decorated with
enamel. Prices range from a
few dollars into the hundreds. I
am not aware of any resources
for the repair. You might try a
jeweler or a person who works
on pocket watches. Have you
checked with an optometrist?
You might also try the website
www.antiquespectacles.com

See I_:/Page E7


Special to the Chronicle
This 1928 postcard was sent from New York
to Czechoslovakia. Although postcards like
this are of interest to collectors, they rarely
sell for more than a few dollars.

CANDICE OLSON
Home and Garden Television
Seven years ago, Terry found the
house of his dreams a ranch-
style bungalow that hadn't
changed much since it was built in
the 1960s. He particularly loved the
kitchen, a Swinging-'60s gem com-
plete with copper-colored appliances
and a melamine table. Unfortunately,
wife Tracey wasn't as keen on the
place; she was hoping for something
a bit more contemporary. But be-
cause Terry loved it, she made him a
deal: They would buy the place and
live with the kitchen for five years, at
which time they would undertake a


complete kitchen renovation.
Well, the five-year mark came and
went, and the room's awkward lay-
out, tiny oven and antiquated fridge
finally took their toll on Tracey. So, I
called in my team and got set to bring
this super-groovy kitchen into the
current decade.
The cramped kitchen didn't leave
much room for entertaining, and it
was closed off from the adjoining liv-
ing and dining rooms. So, I kicked
things off by knocking down a few
walls and opening up the whole

The epicormic growth of a topped
tree is more weakly attached than a
limb that develops more normally -
thereby making the tree much more of
a hazard than before. Once a tree is
topped, it is robbed of its beauty, grace

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.
