For farmers, life's a bowl of berries


CHRIS VAN ORMER
Chronicle

berries made their mark in
Citrus County agriculture.
A large farm, Ferris in Flo-
ral City, has diversified into
the strawberry and blueberry
markets, while a small farm, Misty Mead-
ows in Inverness, specializes in blueber-
ries that customers pick for themselves.
Such agricultural operations offer county
residents a wholesome supply of fresh
produce.
"We've got 85 acres of strawberries,"
said Dudley Calfee, general manager of
Ferris Farms Inc., a 450-acre spread that
occupies most of Duval Island. "It's the
fourth harvest of our blueberries."
Ten acres of blueberries were planted
four years ago, and another 10 acres
were planted last fall..
"These are the baby blueberries,"
Calfee said. "They won't be ready this
year."
t' The small
tu bushes were
sprouting some
Blossoms,
on nonetheless, and
are the latest
I u project in the his-
a tory of what
started out as Fer-
T-e bolebecat ris Groves in the
SFe 1930s, when 350
e trees covered the
land. Freezing
weather every
few winters led owners to diversify. The
citrus groves now occupy 24 acres. In ad-
dition to strawberries, blueberries and
citrus, Ferris also has a Black Angus herd.
"The blueberries are a new crop for
Florida," Calfee said.
In just the past few years, blueberries
have become a Florida growth market.
The transition was easy for Ferris Farms:
The blueberries ripen after the strawber-
ries, keeping Ferris' berry pickers busy.
The young blueberry bushes are more
cold-hardy than strawberries, so are of
less of concern when freezes happen.
Ferris uses a broker to send its berries
to market. But consumers can be sure to
get Ferris fruit and berries by shopping
at its colorful, retro-looking roadside store
on the northwest edge of Floral City.
Misty Meadows offers shoppers the ulti-
mate selection experience-s"U pick'em."
From.the second half of April to the
end of June, local traffic gets heavier on
Turner Camp Road as people drive to the
farm a mile or so from the boat ramp at
the end of the road. At Misty Meadows,
Bill and Rhonda Scheiterle guide people
out to their 10-acre blueberry field.
Their business is direct to the customer
"We don't send berries to a commercial
outlet," Rhonda Scheiterle said.
Their berries never are on sale in a
market, and those in a market now can't
be local berries because of the growing
seasons.
"Those in stores now are from Chile,"
Rhonda Scheiterle said. 'At the end of
the Chile season, it will be the Florida.
season. In April, Florida is the only place
in the world that has blueberries. The
season then moves up north. The prices
then start dropping as more berries are
growing up north."

Music REVIEW


From singing to his grandmother to singing for his supper

_ Area native's debut album a solid effort that's hard to find but worth the search


AMAZON.COM/Special to the Chronicle
Country singer Easton Corbin, whose
family halls from Chiefland, recently
released his first album, "I'm a
Little More Country than That."


Lou ELLIOTT JONES
For the Chronicle


Imagine the roads of the tri-
county area. Think about the
folks you know. The small towns.
Set these images to music and
you will find them floating through
the notes of Easton Corbin's title
song on his new album, "I'm a Lit-
tle More Country than That."
Those are the roots that run
through the album, on the Mer-
cury label, released on Tuesday.
For folks in the area, there can
be some pride, as Corbin's roots


run deep here.
But there is also some conster-
nation as the 30 CDs allocated to
Walmart in Chiefland were gone
by 7 a.m. Corbin's family and
friends were left calling stores in
the Gainesville area to locate
copies, learning many stores only
had five to 10 copies each.
Corbin grew up in the area, be-
longed to the 4-H and FFA and
showed animals at the Suwannee
River Youth Livestock Fair and
Show.
He spent time on his grandpar-
ents' cattle farm in Gilchrist


County. His brother D.J. "Fonz"
Macy is a K-9 officer at the
Chiefland Police Department
His father Dan Corbin, a for-
mer correctional officer at Cross
City, talked on his cell phone
Tuesday as Debbie Corbin an-
swered the house phone that con-
tinuously rang bringing
congratulations and well wishes.
"It's crazy. Everybody's been
calling to say they can't even get
it," Dan Corbin said. "They only
had 30 go to Walmart and a lot of
stores only got five and 10...
"I went to iTunes and down-


loaded it for use and pre-ordered
the CD through Walmart and
everybody's been calling because
they can't get it and they're dis-
appointed."
Corbin had not heard from his
son on Tuesday, as the younger
Corbin was doing public appear-
ances tied to the album's release.
So the father was spending time
on the phone and the computer,
where he hunted down news
snippets and reviews. "He's get-
ting some great reviews."

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, VMLARCH 201U LO,



Attorney general warns Floridians: Be wary of scams


Special to the Chronicle

With National Consumer Pro-
tection Week beginning next week,
Attorney General Bill McCollum
today released a list of top con-
sumer issues facing Floridians.
The attorney general is urging cit-
izens to become better informed
about the scams and fraud cur-
rently threatening consumers.
The attorney general also offers
the following tips to help con-
sumers protect themselves:
Timeshare resales: Time-
share resale scams can occur both
at the time of the original pur-
chase and at the time of resale and
often promise sales for a listing
fee, but fail to deliver. To protect
themselves, sellers should con-
sider reselling their timeshare "by
owner," by placing an advertise-
ment in a newsletter or magazine
read by potential timeshare buyers,
or by listing the timeshare with a
licensed real estate broker in the
area where the resort is located.
Foreclosure rescue seams:
Today, homeowners are being


bombarded with advertising from
companies claiming they can save
homes, reduce mortgage payments
and many other offers. Homeown-
ers need to be very cautious and
should know that Florida law pro-
hibits any company or individual
from charging up-front fees 'for
foreclosure rescue or loan modifi-
cations related to foreclosures.
Debt settlement: Businesses
that are running debt settlement
scams promise consumers they
can pay off consumers' debts for a
fraction of the amount owed, but
instead collected large up-front
fees and left customers with little
or no money to pay creditors. Con-
sumers should be very wary of
companies that make outrageous
promises and collect up-front fees.
Credit repair: Credit repair
schemes involve claims to im-
prove credit or eliminate bad
credit and are sometimes part of
other operations claiming to ne-
gotiate .or eliminate debt. Con-
sumers need to be cautious of
firms offering debt relief, includ-
ing debt management, credit


counseling and credit card rate re-
duction services. Consumers
should be aware that credit repair
companies are not permitted to
charge up-front fees.
Debt collection: Debt collec-
tors are legally prohibited from
lying to consumers or threatening
them to collect payments. They
are also prohibited from calling
after 9 p.m. and may not contact
consumers at work if they know the
consumer's employer disapproves.
Identity theft: Identity theft
can frequently occur through stolen
mail or over the Internet using a
technique often referred to as
"phishing." Phishers attempt to
convince consumers to provide
their personal identification in-
formation through emails dis-
guised as a reputable web service
or even the consumer's bank Once
the consumer enters his or her ac-
count numbers, the scammer has
all the information necessary to
engage in identity theft. Con-
sumers should never respond to
emails asking for personal identi-
fication information.


Magazine subscriptions: Con-
sumers complained to the Attor-
ney General's Office that they
often received magazines they did
not order or subscribe to and were
billed for these undesired items.
Consumers should be cautious if
they receive magazines or other
products for free and should care-
fully review the terms of subscrip-
tion and billing to ensure that after
a free trial expires, they will not
continue to be billed.
Travel services: Complaints
against travel agencies involved
supposed "all-inclusive" vacation
packages with hidden consumer
fees. Consumers should beware of
a hard sales pitch or an offer that
sounds too good to be true.
Health supplements: Con-
sumers reported that companies
were offering "free" trials of prod-
ucts without allowing consumers
to cancel their subscriptions be-
fore being billed. Consumers were
unable to contact the companies
by telephone, e-mail or through
the company websites to cancel
their subscriptions before the trial


period ended, and as a result were
billed for the supplements.
Wireless telephone issues:
Customers reported they were
charged for mobile content down-
loads that they neither knowingly
authorized nor desired such as
ringtones, music, wallpaper, horo-
scopes and other material. Online
marketers also promoted these
downloads as "free," but ulti-
mately billed customers recurring
monthly fees.
The Attorney General's Office
can provide practical tips for con-
sumers on how to make well-in-
formed purchase decisions, avoid
scams, protect their personal in-
formation and file a complaint if
they feel they are the victims of
fraud. Consumers who wish to file
a complaint may do so by calling
the attorney general's fraud hot-
line at (866) 9-NO-SCAM '(966-
7226) or by filing a complaint
online at http://myfloridalegal.com.

tional Consumer Protection Week

CORBIN
Continued from Page Al

Corbin is a rising star on
the country music circuit.
The piano-guitar inter-
lude on "I Can't Love You
Back" is the perfect slow-
dancing, hug-'em-close-as-if-
you-would-lose-'em-tomorrow
ending to a love song. Dimes
to dollars, it will be the one
played after last call at
many a bar and lodge dance
this weekend. "It's like a
sunset, it leaves you wanting
more of it," the elder Corbin
said of the song.
While the album cover
looks like something that
could have been shot at one
of the many old homes in
Gilchrist, Levy or Dixie
counties, Corbin's parents
Essay the shoot was done in
Kentucky.
"The Way Love Looks on
You" is a bit faster of a love
song, but for everyone who
has been smitten once again
with someone they have
spent many a day and night
with, it's a familiar refrain.
"Baby, I like the way love
looks on you ... lying on the
pillow.., sharing your deep-
est secrets ...." Alan Jackson
should be satisfied with
Corbin's cover of his hit
tune.
It's no secret that this
album should be a success.
By 3 p.m. Tuesday, iTunes
had sold 500,000 copies.
There will be a tour with
Brad Paisley in May
"It's working tremen-
dously well for him far
beyond his expectations,"
the elder Corbin said. "I'm
elated that people have ac-
cepted him and embraced
him."
Corbin's dad said the fam-
ily is planning a trip to
Nashville later this month
when Easton Corbin per-
forms at the Grand Old
Opry.
It should be a special
night for the younger
Corbin, who told a journal-
ist he remembers listening
to the Opry with his grand-
parents.
One disappointment for
the younger Corbin is that
he will be unable to perform
at this year's Spirit of the
Suwannee River Jam a
showcase for music talent.
Instead the singer will be


performing on April 24 at
the Stagecoach California
County Music Concert Festi-
val in Indio, Calif. On the
stage with Keith Urban,
Toby Keith, Brooks & Dunn
and Sugarland, will be
Merle Haggard one of the
singer's inspirations.
When he was growing up, :,
young Corbin would listen
to Merle Haggard's records,
the elder Corbin said.
The elder Corbin said he
and Easton Corbin's mom
divorced wheh the singer
was 3 years old. He was
hunting for ways to spend
more than the weekend vis-
itation time with his son.
"I wanted us to spend
some time together, so I
spent time with him and
tried to find something he
was interested in," the fa-
ther said.
Dan Corbin was working
at Cross City Correctional
Institution in 1996 when he
first took Easton to Pee Wee
Melton for guitar lessons.
"It was a way to spend
some time together. I'd pick
him up from school and he
would take a lesson,"
Corbin said. "After the first
week I didn't think he was
interested. So I told him you
don't need to be doing this
just because I signed you up
for it. He said Dad I'll try
another week and he said
you know I think I'll like
this and we just kept it
going."
"Every Wednesday I'd
carry him over there."
The Corbins were visiting
a guitar store in Lake City
when they learned that the
Spirit of the Suwannee was
having a guitar pickin' con-
test. A clerk at the store
asked the younger Corbin if
he could sing.
"He said, 'I can sing, but
mostly to my grandmother,'"
the father said. "But he did-
n't take himself seriously at
all. And he did win it.
"He won a guitar and he
was elated. It was his first
achievement and the first
time anyone recognized him
as somebody with talent."
So what did the young gui-
tarist do?
"He came home and did a
lot of singing for his grand- ;
mother."

BERRIES
Continued from Page Al

Long-time customers are
impatient for the picking to
begin, the Scheiterles said.
People call them and ask
They have set up a Web site
that will let people know
when the picking time is
here.
"Our customers are
chomping at the bit. They
start checking in January,"
Rhonda Scheiterle said.
"Right now, blueberries are
being imported from South
America. But people like to
buy local or at least from the
United States."
The Scheiterles said they
love their lifestyle and the
customers.
"Berry pickers are just an
outstanding breed of peo-
ple," Rhonda Scheiterle
said.
"They're like an extended
family," said Bill Scheiterle.
Many of their customers
have been picking berries
there before the Scheiterles
took over the farm eight
years ago.
"The farm started in
1975," Bill Scheiterle said.
"When we came along, it
was being run by an older
woman and her' daughter.
They were getting too old to
run it. They had customers
who stayed with us. Other
customers we've picked up
by word of mouth and we
put an ad in the Chronicle
when the berries are ready
We also put up signs."
They bought the property
in 2002, after the local job
market offered little.
"We came down looking
for jobs," said Rhonda
Scheiterle. "I was a lab tech.
Bill was in engineering. Our
friends showed us this place
for sale.".
It wasn't hard to convert
to the lifestyle.
"I was brought up as a
farmer," Bill Scheiterle
said. "You've just got to
learn the crop. We had a
hard time getting started.
We spent too much time try-
ing to save diseased
bushes."
Their enthusiasm has not
waned.
"We love it," Rhonda
Scheiterle said.
"It's so nice to be back in

farming," Bill Scheiterle
said.
"You roll out of bed and
you're at work," his wife
pointed out.
With the space they have,
the Scheiterles have taken
in some rescue animals:
four hens and a rooster, two
dogs and three cats.
They also have honeybees
and bumblebees to polli-
nate the berries. Hives of
honeybees dot the rows of
bushes. A beekeeper main-
tains the honeybees and
sells the honey. The Scheit-
erles buy bumblebees from
Michigan.
If you want to pick
berries, keep checking their
Web site.
"Our Web site is just going
up," Rhonda Scheiterle
said. "I'm going to add
recipes on it. Our customers
can check it before they
drive out here because
sometimes we are picked
out and have no berries on
the bushes.
"It takes about three or
four days for the berries to
come back," Bill Scheiterle
said. "They're constantly
ripening over a six-week pe-
riod."
Last year, the Scheiterles
lost their crop when a water
pump broke down during a
freeze. In a matter of min-
utes, a year's worth of work
was gone. Weather and in-
sect risks give agriculture
an edge as an occupation,
and keep ranchers and
farmers on the lookout for
better production tech-
niques.
"We're always just a filter
clog or a pump failure away
from that happening to us,"

MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle
Camp E-Ninnie-Hassie campers cut tens of thousands of strawberries Thursday morning in preparation for this weekend's
festival in Floral City.


Calfee said.
He was glad the Scheiter-
les got through their diffi-
cult time.
"In agriculture, everyone
wants everyone else to do
well," Calfee said. "They
share a spirit of cama-
raderie I haven't seen in any
other industry."
Calfee hails from a con-
struction background, but
said he and his family could
not be happier with their
new life on Duval Island.
Ferris is testing experi-
mental strawberries for the
University of Florida.
"We have several experi-
ments to see if we can re-
duce the amount of
chemicals and sprays,"
Calfee said.
The university also is try-
ing out predatory mites
against two-spotted spider
mites that attack strawber-
ries to see if it could lessen
the need for pesticides.
Technology helps farmers
when they can place sensors
in the field to work like
weather stations checking
temperature, humidity and
leaf wetness for potential


fungal outbreak Then farm-
ers know when to spray, so
can spray less often.
Ferris also is testing new
varieties of strawberries.
Three varieties, Festival,
Treasure and Albion, are
grown. Calfee wants to find
the next Festival, the main
strawberry. He said the
other two are grown as in-
surance against a disease or
insect wiping out the crop.


He grows three berries from
three sources.
What Calfee said he really
would like to see is more
young people taking an in-
terest in agriculture as a
way of life.
"There's hope for the next
generation here," Calfee
said. "You can be the next
Thomas Edison of agricul-
ture."
Recent experimenting


has resulted in standard use
of plastic sheeting on grow-
ing mounds and drip tube
watering for strawberries,
Calfee said.
"Every day is a new
learning experience,"
Calfee said. "Those types of
innovations are still out
there. Of course, you'll still
have to walk around in the
fields and get your hands
dirty."

Hero's homecoming


Special to the Chronicle
On Jan. 15, another hero's ceremony was staged at the Crystal River American Legion Post 4155. Local veterans turned
out to welcome SGT Jordan Bush home from his third tour of duty in Iraq. Among those on hand for the event were, front,
from left: Fred Daniels, commander Citrus County Veterans Coalition; Tim Donovan, Fleet Reserve Association Branch/Unit
186; Sallie Haley, president of American Legion Unit 155; Barbara Mills, Citrus County Heroes coordinator; Joan Huscher,
president of Fleet Reserve Association Unit 186; and John Ring, Citrus County Veterans Coalition. Back row, from left,
are: Jay Conti Sr., vice commander of American Legion 4th District; Joe Meek, Citrus County commissioner; Rick Logan,
chef de Gare 40/8 Voiture 1219; Larry Pink, commander of American Legion Post 155; SGT Jordan Bush; Joe Nolan, 40/8
Grand du Florida correspondent; Barbara Logan, la president of Citrus 40/8 Cabane 1219; and Bob Huscher, Fleet Reserve
Association Branch 186. More than 100 members of the community turned out for the fish fry at American Legion Post
155 for the event. Bush grew up with Meek's son, who was also in attendance. Bush joined the U.S. Army in 2003. Al-
though an infantryman, because of his skills and knowledge of the Iraqi landscape during his previous two tours, he was
assigned as head of detainee operations for his unit during his third tour. Bush is assigned to 32nd Brigade Special Troops
Battalion in Fort McCoy, Wis.

WHEN IS A



PUBLIC NOTICE



NOT A PUBLIC



NOTICE?


Don't Let Florida Officials

Remove YOUR RIGHT TO KNOW

From The Newspaper.


Keep Public Notices
In Your Newspaperl
Proposed legislation would remove
your right to read public notices in
newspapers, restricting them to
government web sites only.
We re concerned.
You should be, too.
Public notices are an important tool
in ensuring an informed citizenry.
They have played a key role in
America s participatory democracy
where it counts most: how your tax
dollars are spent and how policy is
made.
When located in easy-to-find
sections of your newspaper, they are
fully accessible to everyone, unlike the
Internet. Large segments of the state s
population, including more than half
of Floridians over 65 and one-third
of minority populations, do not have
Internet access.
The public s right to know cannot
be abandoned in favor of cost savings
that are elusive.


Consider that less than 10% of U.S.
citizens view a government web site
daily, according to the U.S. Census
Bureau. This contrasts dramatically
with the 83% of adults who read a
community newspaper every week,
according to the National Newspaper
Association.
Furthermore, a public notice printed
in the newspaper produces a
permanent record. A newspaper is
archived for years, and is not subject
to computer crashes and hackers.
Newspapers are easily verifiable,
fully transparent and represent
an impartial third party. Giving
government singular responsibility
for distributing public notices is like
putting the fox in charge of the hen
house.
Newspapers are your watchdogs.
Keep it that way. Contact your local
representative today and voice your
opinion.

to good starts
JON-MICHAEL SORACCHI
Chronicle
For the first time in quite a
while, all four Citrus County
baseball teams begin the 2010
season with high hopes after
each one finished better than
.500 in 2009.
Only two of those squads, Crys-
tal River and Seven Rivers
Christian actually made the state
playoffs, but the whole grot]i f
intent on trying to make it to the
Promised Land in April.
No team in the county lost a lot
of players to graduation from
2009. However, the quality of
baseball standouts who need to
be replaced are still sizable.
Crystal River loses Chronicle
Baseball Player of the Year Nic
Dellatorre and three-time All-
Chronicle selection Matt Garlock
from the front of its rotation and
at the plate.
The Pirates, however, bring
back seven ballplayers who
started games and add a bevy of
young arms to the mound.
Senior Aaron Dix and junior
Steven Arcad pane are the sea-
soned arms at this point and are
joined by sophomores Donnie
Dewees, Tyler Humphreys and
J.T. Whitley
"You're talking about t\ o start-
ing pitchers," new Crystal River
coach Dan Comstock said of the
loss of Dellatorre and Garlock.
"Luckily, we have three sopho-
mores that have live arms."
Those pitchers will be throw-
ing to senior catcher Jared Mar-
ckese, who is one of the best
all-around players in the county.
Marckese batted .455 for the
Pirates and was hands down the
hottest hitter in the county in the
second half of the year:
Senior centerfielder Cody
Ewing, who stole 27 bases in
2009, and senior right fielder
Gehrig Hall, a two-time All-
Chronicle. selection, form with

Vilardi defeat

cold to win race
LARRY BUGG
For the Chronicle
It didn't matter that if felt
like Minnesota.
Saturday, there were about
300 runners taking part in the
12th Annual Shamrock Scam-
per 5K at Citrus High School.
Some of them dressed like
they were running on .the
North Pole. Others wore
shorts even though the tem-
perature was in the 30s, the
coldest day ever for a Citrus
Road Runners Club event
The cold may have forced
the runners to move faster so
they could start breathing and
finish it up.
Former Lecanto High dis-
Stance standout Nick Farring-
ton won the race with a time
of 16:50. Now a student at
Florida Atlantic University,
Farrington wasn't bothered by
the cold.
"I've always enjoyed run-
ning in the Citrus County
area," said Farrington. "I run
in all kinds of weather. It was
a lot of fun."
Sheri Vilardi dressed for
the cold and was the top
women's finisher with a time
of20:02.
"Actually, it (the cold)
slowed me down a little bit,"
said Vilardi. "I couldn't feel
my arms. Last April, I blew my
calf while I was running. It
has taken me a year to get
back. No pain. I did very well.
I am happy with this morning.
You have to take into consid-
eration all the outside factors,
the weather. It has been really
cold this season. To be able to
come out here and run it, a 20
minute mile, it's a great feel-
ing afterwards."
Lecanto High boys cross
country coach Dan Epstein is
a native of Massachusetts and
didn't seem too bothered by
the cold. Epstein, a Crystal
River resident, won the men's
masters title with a 19:38 time.

BASEBALL
Continued from Page B1

Marckese a formidable
Crystal River batting lineup.
Crystal River is now in
Class 3A, competing in Dis-
trict 6 with Trinity Catholic,
Mount Dora, Wildwood,
Umatilla, South Sumter and
The Villages.
While it should be a com-
petitive race among those
six schools for the two play-
off spots, the Pirates are
confident they will make
their fourth consecutive
trip to the state tournament
"I believe anything short
of competing for the district
title with the talent we have
on our varsity team would
be disappointing," Com-
stock said, "but in the same
respect, we have a very
knowledgeable coaching
staff that's been there be-
fore."
Citrus and Lecanto
should also be in the mix of
things in their Class 4A, Dis-
trict 8 race. The Hurricanes
and Panthers comprise a
nine-team district along
with Hernando, Nature
Coast, River Ridge, Land

O'Lakes, Wiregrass Ranch,
Sunlake and Zephyrhills.
"Citrus historically has
always been pretty compet-
itive," Hurricanes coach
Jon Bolin said, "and we feel
like we can compete in this
district as well."
The Hurricanes lose just
two key players but one
(Brandin Barroso) was the
team's best pitcher and hit-
ter while the other (Kyle
Blocker) was the team's sec-
ond-best hitter.
Citrus, though, has plenty
of firepower left starting
with senior pitchers Tommy
Fray, a 6-foot-i right-hander,
and Jeff Dally, a 6-foot-5
left-hander who is going to
the University of Central
Florida to play baseball.
The Hurricanes should
be strong up the middle as
well, beginning with senior
catcher Matt Malik return-
ing behind the plate and
ending in centerfield with
third-year varsity starter
Matt Archambault.
"We feel like we have a
good mix of older, senior
players with good younger
players," Bolin said.
Lecanto probably has the
most to replace after losing
three All-Chronicle players

off a team that posted just
its third winning season in
25 years.
The Panthers' strength is
on the left side of the infield
with seniors Chris Choto
and Josh Slonaker return-
ing at third base and short-
stop, respectively.
Lecanto has some depth
at pitcher but it's all ex-
tremely young. Thomas
Bevis is a junior who had
some varsity experience but
the Panthers are breaking
in sophomores Tyler Sisson
and Shelton Baxter.
With young hurlers, none
of which are particularly
hard throwers, Lecanto
must field the ball well to
compete night in and night
out.
"That's how it is in high
school baseball," Lecanto
coach Rob Cummins said.
"You catch the ball, you
win. If you don't, you're
going to have problems."
Seven Rivers Christian,
meanwhile, is in a five-
team district in Class 1A,
District 4 with Oak Hall
Academy, St. John
Lutheran, Meadowbrook
Academy and Cedar Key.
The Warriors are trying to
improve upon last year's


runner-up spot in the dis-
trict championship game
and may have the pieces to
do so.
Senior pitcher Michael
Manning, the Warriors' ace
last year, returns as does
senior catcher Nick Serra
and junior shortstop An-
drew Gage.
The Warriors, under first-
year coach Andy Hendrix,
are still searching for their
first-ever district champi-
onship in baseball.
Tuesday's home game
against district foe St. John
Lutheran should go a long
way toward whether or not
Seven Rivers can accom-
plish the feat.

RUNNERS
Continued from Page B1

Epstein plans to run his
fourth Boston Marathon
next month.
"They don't understand
up North," said Epstein.
"It's a lot colder down here.
It's a humid cold. I ran with,
Sheri Vilardi. I knew that if
I could run with someone, it
would help and Sheri
helped me through. Ben
(Epstein's son) ran today
and my wife (Colleen) ran.
My daughter is running the
children's run."
Dunnellon 13-year-old
Caleb Cutshall finished
third overall with a time of
18:41.
"I like it better in the cold,
far better than in the heat,"
said Cutshall.
Citrus High senior cross
country runner Brandi
Nichols finished 20th with a
time of 21:05.
"It was really hard to
breathe," said Nichols. "The
whole race, my feet felt re-
ally numb. In the beginning,
it was harder because you
are breathing all that cold
air in your lungs. My goal
today was to get under 22:30
and I got just over 21 min-
utes. I'm pretty excited."
Citrus High girls cross
county coach Billy Bass ran
a 21:55 to finish 35th.
"It's a nice day for run-
ning," said Bass. "Great
crowd. The (Citrus) Road-
runners Club did a great
job. It was a great race. I like
it a little bit cool. I like it
(the temperature) around 40
to 45."

Phil Royal, a veteran run-
ner, loved the cold.
"It's awesome," Royal
said. "Actually, the weather
is beautiful. You can't ask
for a better day I love it
when it's cold. No problems
at all. We had 11 from the
Withlacoochee Technical
Institute law enforcement
class who ran today. We run
as a group. It's exciting for
the group. They love it."
Hernando resident Paul
Dorey, 70, has overcome
heart attacks in past years
and had his prostate taken
out recently. He also passed
a kidney stone and had a
blown out knee in the past
year and a half.
A little cold couldn't
bother him as he ran the
course in 34:23.
"I love it," Dorey said.
"The colder, the better. I
don't like hot weather. (My
time) was a little faster than
I have done in a year and a
half."
There was an even larger
crowd of youngsters run-
ning the Five Points of Life
after the Shamrock Scam-
per
There were 600 Citrus
County students who ran a
little over a mile after the
Scamper. For them, they
were finishing the last leg of
a marathon they have been
running during the school
year.
"They have been running
throughout the school year,"
said Five Points of Life di-
rector Brite Whitaker.
"They will complete the
marathon."
Race director Chris Mol-
ing was impressed with the
crowd.


"It's cold out here," Mol-
ing said. "There were a lot
of people out here. We have
a good crowd. It's going to be
a fantastic day. If the
weather were just a little
warmer, it would be an even
better day. I'm not com-
plaining. It's not a record
crowd but close to a record
crowd. We thought with the
kid's marathon, we might
lose some runners. We are
right at 300. It's the coldest
race we have had so far. It
was 32 (degrees) when I got
here. We're happy to be
here and happy to be part-
nered with the Five.Points
of Life. It's a really good pro-
gram."

Serbia's lead to 2-1
BELGRADE, Serbia Bob
Bryan and John Isner defeated
Nenad Zimonjic and Janko Tip-
sarevic 7-6 (8), 5-7, 7-6 (8), 6-3
in doubles to keep the United
States alive in the Davis Cup
first round, cutting Serbia's lead
to 2-1.
Isner was a last-minute re-
placement for Bryan's twin
Mike, who was sidelined with
food poisoning. The Bryans are
the top-ranked doubles team.
Isner, who made his Davis
Cup debut on Friday, will try to
even the series Sunday when
he plays second-ranked Novak
Djokovic in the first reverse sin-
gles on an indoor clay court at
Belgrade Arena. Sam Querrey
is set to play the final singles
match against Viktor Troicki.

beat Querrey. The U.S. has
only won once after falling be-
hind 2-0 in the Davis Cup,
against Australia in 1934.
Serbia is trying to advance
beyond the first round in the
World Group for the first time.
In other Davis Cup matches,
France, Croatia and the Czech
Republic advanced to the quar-
terfinals with insurmountable 3-

in winning 2001M
ANNAPOLIS, Md. Four-
teen-time Olympic gold medalist
Michael Phelps came within a
half second of the U.S. record in
the 200-yard individual medley
on Saturday, winning in 1 minute,
40.58 seconds in the Maryland
swimming championships at the
U.S. Naval Academy.
Phelps had been scheduled
to swim in two events Saturday,
but chose to drop out of the 500
freestyle to concentrate on the
2001M after swimming a
1:43.99 in his qualifying heat.
Olympic gold medalist Ryan
Lochte set the U.S. record of
1:40.08 in the 2007 Short

Today' HOROSCOPE


Your birthday: There could be more than your share of
lucky opportunities in the year ahead, and if you provide
your best effort, they could all be quite rewarding. The
months ahead will be anything but run-of-the-mill.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) You could be exceptionally
lucky dealing with ventures or projects you can manage
and/or obtain a majority control. There is no doubt about
your ability to succeed.
Aries (March 21-April 19) -You'll be exceptionally adept
at handling the little things that occur behind the scenes
when putting together something that a large group consid-
ers meaningful.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) Whether you're trying to or
not, you will make those in your company feel exhilaration
and joy. In fact, you might even be the catalyst for a fun ac-
tivity.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) If you're in a competitive situ-


ation at work or play, set your sights high and give it every-
thing you have. Your chances are excellent for scoring big.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) Your caring personality is far
more magnetic at this time than usual. Don't be surprised if
family members, neighbors and friends all seem to cluster
around you.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -Although some of your methods
to achieve a major accomplishment may seem unorthodox
to others, they are exactly what you must do to reach the
objective.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If you need to brainstorm
ideas and concepts, use this day to get together with sev-
eral trustworthy friends whose intellect you greatly respect.
They won't let you down.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Even if this isn't a workday,
there's a strong possibility you could be inspired to find
ways to increase your income. Work things out in your


mind, and try things out as soon as possible.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Friends you encounter so-
cially could be of considerable help in furthering your self-
interests. Trust what they offer, and avail yourself to
whatever opportunity opens up.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) By maintaining a good at-
titude about things, a positive scenario is likely to unfold.
Your perceptions will be critical in drawing good influences
into your life.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If a unique thought is
swirling in your head, dare to design something different.
It's an extremely favorable time for promoting a brand-new
moneymaking idea.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Don't be intimidated by de-
velopments that cost more than you thought, especially if
luck is required to meet the price. Dame Fortune will help
you out.

HISTORY=

Today is Sunday, March 7,
the 66th day of 2010. There
are 299 days left in the year.
Today's Highlight:
On March 7, 1850, in a
three-hour speech to the U.S.
Senate, Daniel Webster of
Massachusetts endorsed the
Compromise of 1850 as a
means of preserving the Union.
(Critics bitterly denounced
Webster for endorsing a
compromise which included
a provision for returning run-
away slaves to their owners.)
On this date:
In 1793, during the French
Revolutionary Wars, France
declared war on Spain.
In 1876, Alexander Gra-
ham Bell received a patent
for his telephone.
In 1926, the first success-
ful trans-Atlantic radio-tele-
phone conversations took
place, between New York
and London.
In 1936, Adolf Hitler or-
dered his troops to march
into the Rhineland, thereby
breaking the Treaty of Ver-
sailles and the Locarno Pact.
In 1945, during World War
II, U.S. forces crossed the
Rhine River at Remagen,
Germany, using the dam-
aged but still usable Luden-
dorff Bridge.
In 1965, a march by civil
rights demonstrators was
broken up in Selma, Ala., by
state troopers and a sheriffs
posse.
In 1975, the U.S. Senate
revised its filibuster rule, al-
lowing 60 senators to limit
debate in most cases, instead
of the previously required two-
thirds of senators present.
In 1994, the Supreme
Court, in Campbell v. Acuff-
Rose Music, Inc., ruled that a
parody that pokes fun at an
original work can be consid-
ered "fair use" that doesn't re-
quire permission from the
copyright holder.
Ten years ago: Texas
Governor George W. Bush
and Vice President Al Gore
were the big winners in
Super Tuesday primaries.
Five years ago: President
George W. Bush nominated
John Bolton to be U.S. am-
bassador to the United Na-
tions, an appointment which
ran into Democratic opposi-
tion, prompting Bush to make
a recess appointment.
One year ago: Secretary
of State Hillary Rodham Clin-
ton met with Turkish leaders
in Ankara, where she an-
nounced that President
Barack Obama planned to
make his own visit.

O CMMENTAROEY
CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE


Labels change and





opportunities increase


Gerry Mulligan
OUT THE
WINDOW


STEPHANIE HOOPER
Special to the Chronicle
t has taken many
years, and even the
White House got in-
volved. The parents
and self-advocates
who have fought to
remove the word "re-
tarded" from ac-
cepted terminology have won
and "Intellectual Disability"
(InD) has taken its place.
While Shakespeare may have
felt that a name makes no dif-
ference in the sweetness of a
rose, parents and persons with
intellectual disabilities know it
is a huge improvement. The
American Association on Intel-
lectual and Developmental Dis-
abilities, formerly the
American Association of Men-
tal Retardation, along with so-
cial workers, psychologists and
educators, agree it is high time
to get rid of a word that has be-
come only an insult
Persons without an affected
family member may wonder why
this is such a big deal. After all,
the challenges remain the same.
Well, the big deal is that the
new label promotes individual-
ity For years, the old label sim-
ply identified people as slow. If
a person's IQ was less than 70,
then it was pretty well accepted
that this person would be slow
in every area of life.
Those of us who have lived
with or worked with InD per-
sons know that they are just the
same as the rest of us chal-
lenged in some areas and ex-
ceptionally successful in others.
The new label also places
InD persons on the same con-
tinuum of life and ability as the
rest of us. Some of us did well
in school and some of us did
not We might be good in math,
but not in language. We may
have a mechanic who did not
go to college, but is brilliant
with our car, or a friend who
never graduated from high
school but is a fantastic wife
and mother and a joy to be
around. The regular IQ score,
labeling a person as InD, does
not measure emotional, ath-
letic, mechanical or artistic
strengths.
But the label change, wel-
come as it is, does not lessen
the need for the identification
and understanding of often-
complex medical, behavioral,
cognitive and social issues.
Years ago, the only choice for
new parents of a more severely
disabled child was between
keeping him home until the
end of his life or placing him in
an institution or hospital. It is
not too surprising that most
children raised, educated and
supported in the family home
throughout their lives became
polite, capable and self-suffi-
cient adults. This was usually
because parents only knew one
way to raise children, and so
they had the same expectations
for all their children. What a
great disappointment it must
have been for the adult with
disabilities to see her brothers
and sisters finding jobs and
families out in the community,
while she remained at home.
Fortunately, the years have
brought about more than a
label change. There has been
an opportunity change. Ac-
knowledging what parents al-
ready knew, children with
disabilities are able to learn
and benefit from an education.


MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle
Key Training Center program participant Joanne Corallo matches socks Friday morning at the Key Center's
Lecanto Thrift Store.


While all of our children are born with
the same rights to an education, inclusion
in the community, residential choice,
and recreational and leisure opportunities,
some may need assistance or training
in life skills to access all of the
opportunities Citrus County provides.


And from those early days of
special education, when stu-
dents with special needs were
secluded in small separate
classrooms, we have moved to
a model where education never
ends and the community is the
classroom. Now, the families are
not left with the sole responsi-
bility for education and care.
Rather, the education of our
children is a lifelong activity
and the shared responsibility
of families, schools, and com-
munity agencies and organiza-
tions. The goal, shared by all our
children, is to live as independ-
ently and happily as possible.
It is our good fortune, if we
have a family member with de-


velopmental disabilities, to live
in Citrus County. Citrus County
is considered a leader in the
state in providing the education,
training and support our chil-
dren need as they go through
life. Our county is a model be-
cause of excellent schools, the
Key Training Center and the
support of generous citizens.
While all of our children are
born with the same rights to an
education, inclusion in the
community, residential choice,
and recreational and leisure
opportunities, some may need
assistance or training in life
skills to access all of the oppor-
tunities Citrus County provides.
Citrus County schools are


very successful in educating our
InD students. All our students
are given every opportunity to
achieve the highest possible
level of academic skills, while
also learning those life skills
that will help them use what
they have learned. Great effort
is taken to include every stu-
dent in the general curriculum
to the extent possible. The
CREST School, a center school
for the county, is available for
those students with more severe
medical, cognitive and emo-
tional disabilities. They may re-
quire closer supervision and a
specially modified curriculum.
And, while the education of
each student is planned around
his or her personal dreams and
goals, entering high school trig-
gers a change to transition plan-
ning. Each student is given the
chance to voice his goals for life
after school. He will decide where
he wants to live and work, con-
tinue his education, and what he
wants to do with his leisure time.
All of his education from this
point on is focused on these goals.

Citrus Countians making the most of their libraries


FLOSSIE
BENTON ROGERS
Special to the Chronicle
In Citrus County, as
across the country, li-
brary usage has in-
creased as more and more
people are out of work or
cutting their spending. Peo-
ple who cannot afford
books, high-speed Internet,
DVDs, books on CD, or mag-
azines can borrow them free
at any branch of the Citrus
County Library System. Cir-


culation is up 5 percent, to-
taling 765,091 items last year.
Personal entertainment
budgets are one of the first
things people cut when try-
ing to save money. Attending
adult and children's pro-
grams at the library is eco-
nomical family entertain-
ment Borrowing DVDs from
the library, instead of buy-
ing or renting, means more
cash in a person's wallet.
Borrowing a book instead
of buying it saves an aver-
age of $25. Borrowing mate-


rials and attending pro-
grams, however, is only one
way that people use the li-
brary. More and more peo-
ple also use it as a
community-gathering place
to share interests and stay
in touch with one another.
More than 240 commu-
nity groups use the library
meeting rooms each year.
The Citrus County Library
System reports 613,751 pa-
tron visits in 2009, an 8 per-
cent increase over the
previous year. More than


2,000 people are coming
through the doors each day
the libraries are open.
On any given day, in the
library you may see stu-
dents working on assign-
ments, researchers seeking
facts for legal arguments,
investments, health infor-
mation, family histories, or
background information for
their great American novel.
The library values writers,
and aspiring writers are
guided by successful au-
thors in the multipart


NaNoWriMo (National Novel
Writing Month) program.
Libraries are essential to
the educational process be-
cause they support curricula,
teach information literacy,
and foster critical thinking
skills. Of particular benefit
to college students is that li-
brary staff proctored 49
exams in Citrus County last
year free of charge. Proc-
tors are often difficult for
students to find.

Efficiency

can be

overrated
I stopped by my house
in Crystal River after
lunch one day last
week and was greeted by
an interesting scene.
After I pulled into the
driveway, all I could hear
were our two dogs barking
and howling. We have a 2-
pound Yorkie, who -
when excited howls
like a little girl whose fa-
vorite Barbie Doll was just
stolen by a big brother.
I raced up the steps
thinking that a burglar
had somehow snuck into
our very secure home and
was stealing important
valuables like my broken
tennis racquets or old
sneakers.
Instead of a crazed bur-
glar, I found that our two
Yorkies had cornered a
large gray squirrel in the
corner of the living room.
The squirrel was petrified
and obviously thinking
that all the years spent
trying to actually sneak
into a home were wasted
because he had discov-
ered the place was filled
with a different kind of
nuts.

"Aw, geez. Oh, man. This

Thanks to past experi-

on the part of my wife, my

couple of lists emerged
that helped to displace a

Mayor Ron issue bri
Kitchen and coun-
cil members in-
vited county, state and federal
authorities to meet with them
recently to see what could be
done.
In summing up the present
situation, Mayor Kitchen said,
"We've, become a dumping
ground for unattended and un-
wanted boats. Unattended
boats quickly become neg-
lected and abandoned boats."
Despite various entities -
ranging from local to state to
federal agencies acknowl-
edging the problem, each is
limited in what they can do.
For example, if boats are able
to navigate around a craft that



Pared-back post
The post office is considering a
five-day delivery. I came from the
North 97 years ago, and I know
when I was growing up, they had
mail delivery to the homes two
times a day, rain, snow or what-
ever. Now if the post office is con-
sidering saving money,
why are they advertising %
at different times, wast-
ing money? No matter
what they do, it's not the
service it used to be. And
I also worked around the
trains going from Wash-
ington to New York, or
New York to Washington,
back and forth, and I CAL
can't see why they 563
should have a five-day 563
delivery only.
Bunning won't budge
I'm watching the Sound Off for
an outcry from the Republicans
about Sen. Running holding up
unemployment benefits for over a
million people in the United
States. Sen. Bunning doesn't have
to worry about unemployment,
does he? Just another jab at the
poor people that complain about
everything Obama does. How
about the other side?
Where's ours?
You know, I am a single woman
in this county. (I) cannot afford gas
in s my car, let alone food. (I) don't
qualify for food stamps because
they say I make a few dollars over
the limit. Then I read the front
page of the paper (about) all this
food getting prepared to go to Haiti.
Who is out there to help people like
me that are suffering, have no kids,
no husband to help me? It's unreal.
Pick a pastor
I see in this morning's paper
that we vote for our favorite bar-
tender. I'm just wondering, when
do we vote for our favorite pastor?

I want to thank the very honest
and kind man who found my debit

Post Office. How refreshing it is to
find such a person. Thank you.
Patches, please
As you exit Sugarmill Woods on
Cypress, there are three street
areas during the last half-mile
that have needed patching for sev-
eral years. These areas have been
neglected and it is my hope that
the next new commissioner will
see that the 500 to 800 cars a
day that use this will benefit from
some of our gas tax monies.

It is unfortunate that the only
source in the media that I have
read that refers to this book is Cal
Thomas' column. Mr. President,
with all due respect, I submit
that it is time to put up or shut
up. The American people are
growing weary of the blame game.

Keep it clean
Re: "Pristine, but high-
priced," Jan. 30.
Despite the understandable
reluctance to spend state money
unwisely and for a set of stan-
dards that many feel amounts to
overkill, I must say that our
state's waterways do need help,
and badly. Recently, Pinellas
County agreed to enact restric-
tions on fertilizer applications
during a four-month period, in-
cluding in the late spring-early
summer months, to address the
problem of severely over-nour-
ished (hyper-eutrophic) water-
ways. This was a reasonable and
long-needed measure to deal
with waterways that were suffer-
ing from too much fertilizer
runoff It still exempts golf courses
and home gardeners, and local
municipalities can opt out of it.
I would encourage everyone to
consider the real need for get-
ting a much better grip on our
waste and storm water runoff
problems while working with
small farms and private landown-
ers to help them make any nec-
essary changes as to how they do
business. But our waterways,
statewide, are telling us in no
uncertain terms that we must start
taking much better care of them.
I believe these standards are an
important and reasonable first step.

If she can't count on understanding, what good am I?


Our children are now
going through the
same things with
their children that Cheryl
and I went through with
them, including guiding
them through the discovery
of the opposite sex. Even lit-
tle boys and little girls know
there's a difference, but as
puberty plows into them,
sometimes this difference
hits 'em like a freight train.
During such times, children
who are struggling to be-
come young adults need
guidance, understanding
and protection.
I'm now watching with ad-
miration as son Fred and
daughter-in-law Gayla have
begun to provide such guid-
ance for their eldest Fred is
wiser than I was about such


things. When he became
aware a certain young fel-
low was special to Ariana,
he didn't go berserk Fred
made it a point to meet the
boy, win his trust and gain
his friendship. As a result,
our son is well-positioned to
protect both his daughter
and the young gentleman
she likes.
These kids are only just
now becoming teenagers,
and it would be easy to ig-
nore or even ridicule their
interest in each other, but
such actions wouldn't make
it go away. The facts of life
are the facts of life regard-
less of how far adults stick
their heads in the sand.
Grandfathers must also
handle such situations with
finesse. It was only a few


short years ago when I'd ask,
"Ariana, do you have any
boyfriends?" and she would
consistently reply, "Only
you, granddaddy,
only you." I was-
n't so naive as to
believe her, but I
liked the answer.
On a recent
Sunday morn-
ing, Fred's fam-
ily was visiting
for the weekend
and Ariana and I Fred B
were sitting in A SI
the living room,
just the two of OF I
us. It was right
after Valentine's Day and she
was holding a small stuffed
toy, so I made an assumption
and then made an inquiry,
"Did Marcus give that to you


r
L
L


for Valentine's Day?"
She smiled sheepishly
and nodded in the affirma-
tive. I withstood the tempta-
tion to launch
into a pontifica-
tion about her
being too young
to have a
boyfriend. In-
stead, I told her
a story:
I told about a
young man who
rannen met a young lady
LICE only a few days
before he was to
LIFE report for active
duty in the army.
It was Christmastime and
the boy wanted to buy the
girl something for Christ-
mas before he left, but he
wasn't sure how to appro-


privately express his feel-
ings. What could he give her
without seeming overly pre-
sumptuous? I intentionally
paused; Ariana took the bait
and asked, "What did he
give her?"
I smiled and responded,
"Would you like to see?"
Her eyes widened as we
stood up together and I
pointed up high to a plant
ledge and called her atten-
tion to an open antique
trunk where, positioned so
as to appear to be climbing
out of the trunk, was a
stuffed toy dog. I placed my
arm gently around my
granddaughter's shoulder
as I said, "I was the young
man. Forty-four years ago I
gave your grandmother that
stuffed toy dog, and she


loved it!"
Ariana hugged me and
gave me a kiss on the cheek
She said nothing, but her ac-
tions spoke clearly: "Thank
you, granddaddy. Thankyou
for understanding that I'm
now changing from a little
girl into a big girl and one
day, even sooner than you'd
like to think, I'll become a
'young lady."
Will this be a lasting ven-
ture into romance for Ari-
ana? It isn't likely, but it is
her first and if she can't
count on receiving under-
standing from me, what
good am I?

No nanny state
I read with interest the article in
the Chronicle concerning the
shrimpers' dilemma ("Frozen for-
tunes for shrimpers," March 3). The
cutline under the photo read,
"Some want the government to step
in and help." I certainly hope this is
not true, but it is indicative of what
many Americans think of the gov-
ernment's role: that it's there to
pick them up if they fall down.
Here's a news flash: It is not the
government's role to be a nanny to
every person or business in Amer-
ica. Well-run businesses succeed;
bad ones, or ones that have outlived
their times, fold. That's the way it is.
One has to save in good years to get
through the bad years.
This is a major problem we face
in America today. We have created a
culture that believes it is the gov-
ernment's role to provide a college
education, health care, retirement,
a weekly check if they aren't work-


Letters to THE EDITOR
ing, a place to live if they can't af-
ford one, and to forgive any debts
they might have made that they
can't pay. Until people start taking
responsibility for themselves and
the government ceases this willful
creation of a nanny state, we will
continue to slide away from the
America thatwe older folks grew up
loving. But remember, the party that
creates the largest number of people
dependent on the government for
their well-being has created an au-
tomatic voting block for itself.
I recently wrote a tongue-in-cheek
letter to my senators and asked them
to look into creating a "public option"
grocery store, restaurant and gas
station. That is, if you don't like the
private companies, or feel they are
too high-priced, come on over to the
government plan and we'll subsidize
your cost Imagine the outcry of small
businesses if this type of thing came
to be. Our government was never
meant to compete with private busi-


ness, and it was never meant to in-
trude into people's private lives.
In 2010 and 2012, let's help solve the
problem: Vote all the incumbents out

Great party
An afternoon Valentine Party was
held at the Beverly Hills Recreation
Association through the efforts of
Alice Abbot, chairman of the Ways
and Means Committee, and her vol-
unteers. Everyone enjoyed an after-
noon of super music with Marcus
Held, our own Swiss Elvis. He is
originally from Switzerland. He
sang favorites that included Love
Me Tender and Hound Dog. He and
his wife, Andrea, own the Panetopia
Restaurant located on U.S. Highway
41 S. Inverness. The restaurant
number is 344-3146.

Crazed Camaro
The sudden acceleration
problem with the Toyotas is
nothing new. I had a 1986
Camaro with a 2.8 engine in
it that did that twice. I
called DOT and no one was
interested. They told me it
could not happen. Well, it
did happen.
Rangel's tangle
The Sound Off column is
great reading. However, the
people who call in should
get their facts straight.
Charlie Rangel is not a sena-
tor. He has been a member
of the House of
Representatives for
over 30 years. He
does not serve the
senate; he serves
only the House.
And he was the
chairman of the
House Ways and
Means Committee CA
until he was shut
down by ethics. He 563-'
is no longer the
chairman. Some-
times the system works.
Vehicle emissions
This is in reference to the
Sound Off that a gentleman
made on Thursday, March
4's section of the paper. It ,
was in regards to burning
trash. He was concerned
that if Florida is so worried
about the environment and
air pollution, why do people
still burn open fires and burn
trash outside? He needs to
get behind some of the cars
in this state and follow them
around with the air pollution
before he starts complaining
about open burning. Open
burning is very, very little
compared to pollution on cars.
Run, Ron, run
I would like to thank the
mayor of Crystal River, Ron
Kitchen, for running for
county commissioner. I look
forward to support you and
S vote for you.


Air apparent
This is in response to the
Sound Off "Florida air." I
came to Florida more than
55 years ago. I have seen
many changes most not
good ones. Yes, the air's
polluted. People are burning
in their yards close to other
homes; the owners disobey
codes.
Look who's talking
The March 4 newspaper
had a headline, "Tot talks
air traffic," and a subtitle of
"Audio indicates child di-
rected planes at New York's
Kennedy." I think
UND that's very mislead-
ing. I think it would
L be more accurate
S to say "Tot repeats
valid air traffic con-
trol instructions to
airplanes." As you
can see, I think
there's nothing
wrong with that. I
0579 don't think they
should do it rou-
tinely, but why
should everybody be such
an old poop about this?
'Copter costs
I would like to know what
the reasoning is to send a
person to Tampa or Shands
hospital and not have them
treated at our hospitals. Many
times I see in the paper arit;'
accident victim with a broken
arm or leg, is sent there.
Who pays for the helicopter?
Symbolic simian
I see on the news where
there's a monkey on the
loose in St. Petersburg. One
would think that our elected
officials would have better
things to do than chase
after that poor monkey. It's
living proof that the monkey's
a lot smarter than most
people. Leave it alone. It
represents freedom. Go after
some robbers or murderers
or rapists and let the poor
monkey enjoy its freedom.


LABELS
Continued from Page Cl

A large part of this education
will be devoted to helping the stu-
dent identify the community agen-
cies and organizations that will
continue the supports that were
provided by the school district.
The major lesson that must be
learned by every student and fam-
Sily is that they are no longer 'enti-
tled to this education and support,
but rather must identify, prove el-
igibility and apply for this assis-
tance.
Once the young adult reaches
age 22, the different agencies that
will be most helpful are very ac-
tive in Citrus County. These agen-
cies may provide continuing
education in both academic and
daily living skills and in how to ac-
cess the community, employment
assistance and other meaningful
day activities, and opportunities
for social interactions and leisure
activities. And since, in the adult
world, little is free, the first thing
to learn is how to pay for needed
supports. (And please prepare to
enter the alphabet soup of re-
sources.)
Every person with a serious de-
velopmental disability (autism,
mental retardation, cerebral
palsy, spina bifida, or Prader-Willi
syndrome) is probably eligible for
Medicaid, Social Security pay-
ments and funding for services
through the Agency for Persons
with Disabilities (APD). Social Se-
curity (SS) and APD can be ap-
plied for as soon as possible for
the family. Parents can apply for
SS at any SS office. APD services
can be accessed at the office in
Wildwood, or by contacting our
Citrus County coordinator, Dennis
Michon, at (352) 330-2744. APD
services, through a Medicaid


School provides constant opportunities to develop the social
skills we all need. Families, understandably, want to protect their
children from disappointment and unhappiness, so school becomes
the place where children learn to spread their wings.


Waiver, include supports in every
area of life.
Other agencies or groups that
offer support include Vocational
Rehabilitation (VR), offering sup-
port to any person with a disability
who needs help finding and main-
taining employment APD and VR
have recently begun working
closely together to help APD eligi-
ble persons. Cathy Jackson ((352)
527-8399) is the director of the
Center for Independent Living
(CIL), located in Lecanto. The CIL
provides free training and support
for persons with "disabilities to...
live as independently as possible,
make personal life choices and
achieve full community inclu-
sion." Butch Keiper ((352) 302-
9307), as the contact for Special
Olympics, can provide informa-
tion on how to participate in the
various activities that include
bowling, basketball and track and
field competitions.
Other groups in Citrus County
are Families and Friends, Reach-
ing for the Abilities (FFRA), which
offers monthly educational and
support meetings and many social
activities for InD adults (contact
Stephanie Hopper, (352) 344-0288
and Ron Phillips, (352) 382-7819);
Moving Mountains, which pro-
vides supports through the Medi-
caid Waiver; the National Alliance
on Mental Illness (N.A.M.I.), which
can help those InD persons who
have a mental illness in addition
to their developmental disability;
the Isaiah Foundation (contact
Sherri Woodstuff, (352) 447-1775),
which provides respite care, and
The Dream Society (contact Tricia


Riccardi, tricia.riccardi@the-
dreamsociety.org), which assists
those with physical disabilities.
Many community churches and
service groups help with support
for activities and fundraising.
Last, but most certainly not least
is the Key Training Center. The
Key Center (contact Jackie Fagan,
(352) 795-5541) exemplifies all that
is wonderful and supportive about
Citrus County. While services,
worth thousands of dollars a year,
are usually paid with Medicaid
Waiver funding, more and more
young adults are leaving school at
age 22 without a waiver. In most
other counties, these unfunded
people would be sitting at home,
waiting for the economy to im-
prove. Here in our county, these
young people can continue their
education, receive support for em-
ployment, take part in meaningful
day activities, and, in some cases,
receive residential placement and
support, all paid by a scholarship.
These scholarships are provided
by the generosity of Citrus County
residents, who contribute both
money and volunteer hours.
The Key Center is constantly
changing to reflect changes in so-
ciety and in the general economy
Some of the notable changes in-
clude an increase of residential
choices, with a full continuum of
service, from homes for residents
with intense medical needs to in-
dividual houses for clients who
live on their own. There are 20
group homes, with recent homes
placed in communities through-
out the county, and serving three
persons and a caregiver. They are


truly family homes.
Daily living activities have
changed from "workshop"-cen-
tered activities to programs that
promote employment out in the
community, volunteer experi-
ences in various businesses, med-
ical facilities and government
offices, and participation in com-
munity social activities.
Education continues, not only
on the two Key campuses, but also
in classrooms at the Central
Florida Community College. Our
adult children are no longer seg-
regated. You will see them work-
ing, volunteering, playing,
shopping and traveling through-
out Citrus County. Our children no
longer ask for help. They ask for
the opportunity to pay back their
community for all the help so gen-
erously given.
While having a child with dis-
abilities is never planned, most
parents will agree that the bless-
ings of raising a child with special
needs are many. Every family is
unique, but some things are true
for all of us. Although the educa-
tion a child receives from his fam-
ily, especially the first few years of
life, is the most important a child
will receive, some things can only
be learned in a larger setting. In-
teracting with non-family mem-
bers requires a different skill set
Learning how to solve problems
and react to disappointments and
failure is probably the most im-
portant skill a child can learn, and
may make all the difference be-
tween an independent adult, and
a child who remains fearful of the
outside world.


School provides constant op-
portunities to develop the social
skills we all need. Families, un-
derstandably, want to protect their
children from disappointment
and unhappiness, so school be-
comes the place where children
learn to spread their wings.
The school years are also times
when parents can become edu-
cated. With our typical children,
the path through school and the
goals for each child are often ob-
vious. We know this child will go
through school, enter college and
become a doctor. With our special-
needs child, the end point and the
path through life are not so obvi-
ous. As parents, we need to be our
children's biggest boosters, but we
also need to be the voice of wis-
dom and reality. We need to learn
where help can be found.
Our special-needs child may say
he wants to become a doctor like
his sister. How do we reframe his
desire and reword his goal so that
he can work toward a reachable
goal? After all, he may not become
a doctor, but it is very possible that
he will find a job or volunteer op-
portunity in a hospital. How do we
get him to that outcome?
And finally, we need to take on
the role of case manager. Our other
children will learn how to speak
and advocate for themselves, but
our special-needs children need
to be taught. There may be some
areas where these children will
always need some support, and it
is our duty as parents to speak for
our children and find those peo-
ple and groups who will support our
child on her journey through life.
We are all very fortunate to live
in Citrus County.

WINDOW I didn't think
Continued from Page Cl the story could
teat an cstrangper


The dogs continued to
howl, bark and complete
amazing back flips. It was
obvious that only I was
going to be able to get the
squirrel out the door. It was
only as I whacked the squir-
rel with a broom and forced
him out the open back door
that I realized the back door
was wide open.
My wife was obviously not
home and I couldn't figure
out why the door would be
left open. That's when I
spied the front door and re-
alized that it also stood ajar.
Two doors open, howling
dogs, petrified squirrel and
no one home. Sounds like a
normal day to me.
I didn't think the story
could get any stranger until
my wife came home and ex-
plained what actually hap-
pened.
She had recently listened
to a report on National Pub-
lic Radio about how people
waste so much time and

medications she's being given,
how often and side effects.
The name of any med-
ical procedures involved.
Hospital billing and in-
surance information.
Under a "Rehabilitation"
heading came these bullet
items:
How long can she stay
in the hospital?
If sent to rehab, get a
reference and make sure in-
surance covers it.
She'll need personal
things nightgown, under-
wear, makeup, soap, slip-
pers, robe, books, something
homey.
Check on home health
care. Might be very expen-
sive and not covered by in-
surance.
Who will take care of
her house newspaper,
mail, etc.?
Then, under the "If sent
home" heading:
Will pain medication
make her too drugged up to
be left alone?
Can she walk?
Food.
What if she needs help?
How will she get to
checkups?
When can she drive?
Clearly, the maker of the
above list learned a great
deal through similar experi-
ences with her parents.
Those items were a solid
foundation for the situation
at hand.

The Adult Literacy Edu-
cation Program is a service
for people with low literacy
skills or who weren't raised
speaking English. With
three trained classes of vol-
unteer tutors, more than 70
people, the program has 95
registered adult learners.
Fifty-five learners are al-
ready matched for one-on-

they need to learn to be-
come more efficient. Since
she retired from the county
school system she has be-
come an enthused artist
who gets very involved in
her work While doing so,
she can create complete
mayhem in her workshop.
She thought she was the
perfect candidate for im-
proved efficiency.
So her first effort at effi-
ciency was that she was
going to run the water for a
bath while she prepared
some meatloaf for dinner in
the kitchen. That darned
meatloaf can take longer
than you expect


Prior to running out of the
house, in a rare moment of
clarity, I recalled an enve-
lope containitig personal in-
formation Mom had sent
detailing personal informa-
tion (no, not first boyfriend,
favorite color, etc.). The pa-
perwork included break-
downs of these items:
Scope, Location, Defini-
tion This being info about
which bank her safety de-
posit box is in, where per-
sonal records can be found
and other business-of-life
organizationalimatters.
Personnel, Miscellaneous
- This being a list of Mom's
minister, attorney, account-
ant, financial folks and doc-
tors. I never knew Mom had
seven different doctors, but
they're listed on the sheet
with telephone numbers
and addresses.
Insurance- This includes
everything from medical-re-
lated policies to car insur-
ance to flood insurance to
homeowners insurance.
Real Estate -The location
of her residence, the location
of the deed and title, and
cemetery plot information.
Assets and Investments -
This being basically what it
sounds like.
Safety Deposit Box Contents
- A random assortment of
important documents.
Credit and Miscellaneous
Cards Everything from
AARP to Voter ID to pre-
arranged funeral info,
which I never considered
would come with a card.
Death and Burial Fu-
neral home, memorial serv-


essential in their quest to
improve their lives.
Employability and job
seeking skills are also im-
portant. The library partici-
pates in job fairs and other
activities to help people
succeed. In addition, the li-
brary provides access for
people needing local, state,
and federal governmental
services.
Although many lack basic
computer literacy, library
staff members are happy to
help them find what they
need. Digital literacy
classes such as Basic Com-
puter Use are highly popu-
lar at the library. Computer
users logged nearly 140,000
hours on public access com-


It was shortly after she re-
alized that she was flooding
the bathroom with an over-
flowing tub that she was also
late for volunteer work she
does in Inverness. So she
quickly mopped up the bath-
room floor with towels and
anything else she could get
her hands on. She took all
the soaking wet parapher-
nalia and ran out the back
door to throw it on the porch.
She did not close the door.
She doesn't really remem-
ber how she left the house,
but it was most likely
through the openfront door.
It's hard to blame the
squirrel for wandering into
the house. I put the blame
squarely on National Public
Radio and its overrated
search for efficiency.
As for the squirrel, he sits
in the pine tree on the side
of the house and has not
shown any renewed interest
to enter the house. Who can
blame him?

ice and burial location in-
formation.

Until Mom's recent injury,
I'd never had an interest in
viewing the contents of that
envelope. Seeing the words
"Death and Burial" and
thinking about my mother in
that context gives me the
willies.
But ... between the two
lists, the direction provided
to me in this unfortunate sit-
uation was outstanding.
And, fortunately, pnlya_ lim-
ited number of the items on
the lists needed to be dealt
with this time around.
Mom's to be released
from the rehab hospital to-
morrow and out-of-state
family members are en route
to help her out. Even though
weeks of rehab still face her,
it's fortunate that the injury
didn't require surgery.
She complains more about
looking like a typical little
old lady with a walker than
she does about the pain, but
that walker is helping to put
her back on her feet.
For anyone (likely most
everyone) who could find
himself or herself in a simi-
lar situation, keep these
lists in mind and customize
them accordingly. They go a
long ways toward minimiz-
ing confusion and helping
one to focus on what needs
to be done.

Flag relief
I'm referring to the Sound Off on
Feb. 11 regarding frayed flags. I'm
pleased to see a dedicated veteran
concerned about our flag and the
way it's displayed. As far as the-flag j
at (State Road) 44 and Croft, the

it at no cost. And at the raceway, it 5
has been replaced also by the 56

the interest in our country's guardian.

The old Hernando historical school feud
does not make much sense. What are the
historical leaders doing for the good of
the people? The charitable organizations
are doing good every day. That is what we

To the person complaining about politi-
cal favors the other day in Sound Off: It is
not Sen. Rangel; it is Congressman Charles
Rangel of New York. Please get your facts
straight before you make accusations.


Snowbird woes
I am calling in reference to the article
about the population in Florida that has
dropped off. We've been coming down
here for 35 years, paying real estate tax,
supporting schools, churches, buying gro-
U N series, paying doctors, prescrip-
tions, buying our gasoline, paying
LK utilities whether we are here or
i not. We can't homestead, so stick
it to the snowbirds; raise their
real estate tax, no limit, and their
evaluation, as everyone else's is
dropping. Ahd'you-wonder why
People are leaving? We love it.
here, but for how much longer
.0579 can we afford it?
Grades for the gander
I saw the recent legislation introduced
by our representatives from the state of
Florida that wants to introduce merit pay
for teachers once again. I think it's a
great idea of merit pay for our state rep-
resentatives. Then we can pay them
based on the state of the economy, crime
rates and other factors related to our
state of Florida, and also include public
input, just like teacher evaluations have a
section for public input. And we will pay
them based on their grade that they get
from the public and based on those other
factors. Then we can talk about teacher
merit pay after we talk about merit pay
for our politicians.

Cimus COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE COMMENTARY SUNDAY, MARCH 7, 2010 C5


Patch piles
I agree with the caller
from Homosassa flatlanders
about Citrus Hills getting all
their roads paved.
We here in Beverly 0
Hills and other
communities just
get patches on
patches. I lived in
unit section 8 for
over 21 years and
not one road has
been paved. All are CAL
full of cracks and
patches. Who in 563-(
the county is play-
ing favorites? Where do our
tax dollars go? Something is
wrong here and needs at-
tention. Where is our com-
missioner? Come on and
take a ride in Beverly Hills.
Certified certificates
I would like to tell the
people how to get a copy of
their birth certificate. It will
be certified. You send to the
state you were born in, send
it to the capital of that
state. Send it to the Bureau
of Vital Statistics. They will
send you a form with how
much to send back in fees.
You fill it out, send them the
money, and you will receive
your birth certificate. I got
mine this way. The capital
of the state where you were
born has all that informa-
tion. The counties'don't.
How're you heating?
This is to the people who
figure this is a nice, warm
winter and'their electric bill
has not gone up. I wish they
would show me where they
buy their kerosene for their
lamps and also the wood for
their wood stove.
Party pooped
Let's see here, we have a


tea party, a coffee party, a
Republican Party, a Demo-
cratic Party and an inde-
pendent party. Everyone has
a party and we're all so di-
JLND vided that nothing
J gets done and
ft& everybody loses.

cording to county records, it
vas properly zoned for a
beer/wine consumption
sage permit. The only
question seems to be now
whether or not there are ta-
bles included. Well, if you're
going to have a permit for
consumptionn of beer or
wine, what's the difference
f there's a table to put your
beer or wine on or if you've

of the American media con-
cerning their slanted cover-
age of the outcome. I was
sorry to read, however, that
he did not mention the sin-
gle country who won the
most gold medals, Canada.
With a population of ap-
proximately one-tenth that
of the U.S. and Europe, they
managed to achieve 14. I
think this exclusion reflects
a general American ignorance
concerning their northern
neighbor. Canadians, known
for their humility, maybe
should be a little more
boastful about their country.
Are there any snowbirds out
there who feel this way?

Inverness insurance business celebrates 80 years

lot can
happen in
80 years.


When George H. Brannen Sr.
established the Brannen Insur-
ance agency in 1929 inside The
Bank of Inverness, he got the
ball rolling by going door to
door in the afternoons after the
bank closed, selling home and
auto insurance policies.
After Tom Hagar graduated
from Florida State University
with a degree in hotel and
restaurant management and
married Brannen's daughter
Margaret "Monkey," in 1961,
Hagar went to work for a coun-
try club in Orlando as an assis-
tant manager. Part of the
hospitality business meant
working late into the night.
"I didn't like that," he said. "I
was a homebody; I like to be
home at night."
,When his wife suggested he
talk to her father about working
at his insurance agency, Hagar's
first reaction was surprised be-
cause he said he didn't know
Brannien had an insurance corn-

1972. Son Greg kneels in front of his dad.


pany
Hagar asked Brannen about
it, and Hagar said, "He thought
that was a great idea."
The timing was good, because
in 1962 the Florida Legislature
passed a law prohibiting banks
from selling insurance on bank
premises. That is the year
Hagar and his father-in-law
launched Hagar-Brannen Insur-
ance.
While Hagar didn't like work-
ing late nights, working hard
didn't bother him. Neither did


hearing "no" time after time.
"You have to be tough," Hagar
said. "You get rejected a lot." He
said going after 10 accounts and
only winning two could be a lit-
tle scary, but his competitive na-
ture helped him persist.
He was happy in his new ca-
reer. Hagar said it was challeng-
ing, and he.was also able to help
people.
"If you really enjoy some-
thing, it isn't like work," Hagar
said. "I love coming to work
every day."


In 1970, Hagar bought the
agency from Brannen and
opened an office in Homosassa
Springs. The Inverness office
moved into its current location
around 1980. In 1993, he opened
another office in Crystal River
and later closed the Homosassa
Springs office to consolidate be-
cause they were only a few
miles apart.
Hagar observed that folks in
Homosassa would go to the of-
fice in Crystal River but not vice
versa.
Not long after Hagar's son
Greg graduated from Auburn
University with a business de-
gree, he went to work with his
father and the agency's name
was changed to The Hagar
Group to reflect the addition.
That was 21 years ago.
"I always thought Greg had a
good mind for business," Tom
Hagar said.
Tom Hagar said when he
started in the insurance busi-
ness, agents typed their own
.policies on manual typewriters
and collected premiums from
customers to pay the insurance
companies.
Now insurance companies

tions to customers, and comput-

Pro-Line Boats reports sales increase, tells changes


Focus shifts to turkeys, owners' events


Special to the Chronicle


With retail sales of its products
on the rise, Pro-Line Boats is mak-
ing wide-ranging adjustments to its
tactics, strategies and model
lineup, according to officials with
the Crystal River-based builder of
fiberglass recreational saltwater
fishing boats.
"We've substantially reduced
field inventory at the dealer and
factory levels, and over the past
few months, our production of re-
tail sold boats has continued to in-
crease. The climate for new
business is showing signs of im-
provement and we're adapting our
methods to increase sales in this
changing marketplace," said John
Walker, senior vice president and
chief operations manager for
American Marine Holdings, parent
company of Pro-Line Boats and sis-
ter company Donzi Marine.


"Traditional boat shows are no
longer the singular catalyst to re-
tail sales that they once were, so
we are shifting our focus to include
more tournaments and owners'
events," said Walker, who ex-
plained that events allowing cus-
tomers to experience Pro-Line
product firsthand provided better
results than boat shows, as meas-
ured in terms of retail sales. "Pro-
Line has a long history of being
very retail focused, going back to
the days of our factory-direct sales
which we began in the early 1990s.
"Today, we are proactively en-
gaging retail customers through
our Web site and have recently
opened channels for, customers to
work directly with our factory sales
staff, who in turn work with our
dealers to facilitate retail sales,"
he said. "Our presence and partic-
ipation in on-water events further
strengthens our customer relations


and ultimately sells more boats."
With boat manufacturers and
dealers nationwide hurting from
the scarcity of wholesale finance,
American Marine Holdings se-
cured a private floor-plan source,
and recently announced that floor-
plan will be available to both Pro-
Line and Donzi's preferred dealer
partners.
"By offering our dealers a floor-
plan option so they may finance
boats for stock, we're helping them
to remain viable business entities,
as it has been proven that cus-
tomers are far less likely to pur-
chase from so-called catalog
dealers," Walker said.
On the product development
front, Pro-Line is focusing simulta-
neously on both ends of its model
lineup. The company is expanding
its popular "Pro-Lite" line of af-
fordable family fishing boats with
new 21-foot and 23-foot center con-
soles. The new 21 CC and 23 CC are
the first Pro-Lite models to feature
integrated cockpit liners with


molded nonskid floors, as opposed
to the more utilitarian rolled-deck
approach incorporated on other
Pro-Lite offerings.
Pro-Line is also taking aim at the
offshore tournament center con-
sole market with a new 35-foot
Super Sport center console. The 35
Super Sport will incorporate ven-
tilated stepped bottom running
surface technology developed at
Pro-Line's sister company, Donzi
Marine.
Internally, Pro-Line is making
administrative moves to accommo-
date these many changes and to
better serve its customers and
dealer network. Teresa Reddick,
the company's production assis-
tant, will assume duties as sales co-
ordinator, allowing national sales
manager Lanie Martin to shift his
focus toward government sales for
both the Pro-Line and Donzi Ma-
rine factories.
For more information, contact
John Walker at 795-4111 or
jwalker@prolinemail.net.


Small

can be

beautiful
W hen it comes to
customer service,
small can be
beautiful. Size isn't every-
thing, especially for pro-
viding value to customers.
This important fact can
help distinguish small
businesses from the big
box chain stores or major
corporations that offer
service on a large scale.
Customer service can
be a powerful competitive
advantage in an age when
more consumers crave
and expect a high level of
service and responsive-
ness.
Your position at the
front lines of your busi-
ness gives you direct ac-
cess to your customers'
needs, attitudes and opin-
ions. You know the kinds
of products or services
they want, when they want
them and how best to de-
liver them.
To gain these valuable
insights, you need to
proactively assess what
you do and should be
doing to keep customers
coming back, rather than
tempting them to try the
"big store" down the
street
Start by putting yourself
in your customers' place.
How would you like to be
treated if you were a first
time customer or a "regu-
lar?" Also, consider con-
veniences. What can you
do to make it easier to find
items and check out,
rather than having to nav-
igate a big box store's
aisles and cashiers lines?
Or, if you are a service
business, determine just
what your customers' ex-
pectations are. You can
ask that question in many
ways, but if you don't ask...
then what?
Connecting with your
customers can be by
phone or e-mail. This is
one way to cut through the
bureaucratic nature of the
bigger business with
which you compete. An-
swer calls promptly Don't
put callers on hold for
long periods of time. If
you promise to respond to
a question in 24 hours, do
it! Designate certain times
during the day to handle
all those questions that
need answering.
The best tactic to gain
that competitive edge is to
call SCORE at 249-1236 or
visit us on the Internet at
scorecitrus.org.

The Citrus County
Chapter of SCORE is in
need of some qualified

nesses.
If you have a strong
business background,
have owned your own
business or have a special
expertise that would aid
those who plan to start a
business, SCORE needs
you.

ships; revive, restore and refresh yourself physically and spiritually, so that you can move
on toward renewed health and well-being. This is an internal process that works with the
body (somatic) and your inner signals (intuitive), and training teaches you to create, store,
trust and use positive emotions and helpful states. Somatic Intditive Training works from
the very first session. Pictured with Chamber Ambassadors is owner and therapist Diane

FAMILY
Continued from Page D1
a nearly paperless environment.
Greg Hagar said it took his fa-
ther two years to convince Bran-
nen to buy an electric typewriter,
something Brannen thought at
first was too expensive. Later,
Greg convinced his father to
bring computers into the busi-
ness. Other technology, from e-
mail and cell phones to text
messaging to social network sites
such as Facebook, make it possi-
ble to keep in touch 24/7.
"It's like you're almost always
at work," Greg said.
The sources of new technology
have also produced new competi-
tion from Web-based insurance
companies and those advertised
mostly on television.
But the Hagars say that their
philosophy of providing good cus-
tomer service and sound advice,
whether or not it results in new
business at the moment, does pay
off.
"In the long run, that's the rep-


utation you want to have," Greg
said. "I've seen them come and
go."
Over the years, the insurance
products offered at The Hagar
Group have expanded from pri-
marily home and auto to com-
mercial and, more recently,
expanding to include other tools
such as mutual funds and IRAs.
The recession has impacted
business as well. Greg said their
insurance policies had been a
mix of about half commercial in-
surance and half home and auto
insurance. The agency serves
about 9,000 individuals and fami-
lies and 1,500 commercial risk
clients. In the past two years,
Greg said there has been a
tremendous drop in commercial
insurance.
He noted that in the past, in-
surance had been considered a
fairly recession-proof business.
"We're really feeling the hit,"
he said.
Another change that occurred
is the relationship that insurance
agents have with carriers. Greg
said in the past, the agents had


more opportunities to discuss
clients' needs with insurance car-
riers, talking over files in face-to-
face meetings. Now Greg said
many insurance companies take
a more "black and white" ap-
proach so that if a customer does-
n't fit the mold, the insurer won't
write the policy
Tom Hagar said that as an in-
dependent insurance agency,
they do have the option of drop-
ping an insurance carrier if they
don't like the way it handles cus-
tomers.
In the last few decades, growth
in Citrus County has probably
been the biggest change. Greg
said in 1962, Citrus County had a
population of 9,000; in 1970, it was
19,000 and in 1980 it was 50,000.
"We really saw a growth takeoff
in the '70s," Greg said.
He recalled as a child riding
his bicycle through the Inverness
Highlands on dirt roads where
his dad would go jogging and
finding bear tracks. He also re-
called when one deputy was sta-
tioned on the west side of the
county and another worked the


east side.
"Everybody knew everybody,"
he said.
In those days it was also a
mostly seasonal community
where the agency did most of its
business within five months
while the "snow birds" were here
- a pattern that persisted into
the early '90s. Now, Greg said, the
business is busy all year.
Through the years both Tom
and Greg Hagar have been in-
volved in the community where
they live and work.
Tom Hagar helped establish
Little League Baseball in Inver-
ness in 1971 and served as a
coach for six years. His team,
with Greg as a player, went on to a
league championship in 1972.
"It was really the best times of
my life," Tom Hagar said.
Greg noted that back then,
there wasn't much for children to
do in Citrus County.
The Hagars have served on a
number of boards and supported
a variety of local organizations
through the years. Greg has
served as president of the Citrus


County Economic Development
Association, Citrus Memorial
Hospital's foundation advisory
council, and is a graduate of
Leadership Citrus. Other organi-
.zations they support include the
Citrus County Fair Association,
Crystal River Rotary and Key
Training Foundation.
When Tom Hagar isn't working,
the 71-year-old likes to work out,
playing tennis or cycling two or
three times a week. "I like exer-
cising. I like getting outside."
He is also a huge fan of college
football. Go 'Noles.
But what he really likes to do is
sell insurance.
"I just think working is my
biggest hobby," he said.
Greg is an avid hunter who has
traveled to Canada, New Zealand
and Africa. In Africa on safari he
was attacked and injured by a
zebra.
"We call him zebra man now,"
Tom Hagar said.

Admiral Dewey rocker features details of interest to collectors


Dear John: I am at-
taching images of
two items to this e-
mail. One is an old "Adini-
ral Dewey"
rocking chair.
The second is
a 'drop-leaf
table. I am won-
dering if you
can give me any
information
and value esti-
mates for them.

nando John S
Dear WJ.L: SIKOF
Admiral AT,
George Dewey,
1837-1917, be-
came famous in the Span-
ish-American War and
was called the "Hero of
Manila" as a result Be-
cause of his hero status
and his nationally recog-
nized name, numerous
commemoratives were
produced, which included-


paintings, prints, house-
hold items, pressed glass
pitchers, bronze figures,
carved wood statues, beer
steins, dining
room chairs,
and rockers de-
picting Dewey
t and Spanish
American war
motifs. There
were variations
in the scenes
represented.
Your rocking
ikorski chair has
SKI'S Dewey at the
TIC center portion
of the backrest
The crest rail
has his ship with its name,
"Olympia," just below.
These are the bells and
whistles the market looks
for. Current potential dol-
lar value is below $1,000,
but likely not far.


-See ATTiC/Page E14


Special to the Chronicle
ABOVE: This drop-leaf tble features spool-turned legs, and was likely produced in
the late 19th or early 20th century. Market interest is low; it would probably sell
for between $150 to $300. RIGHT: This is an "Admiral Dewey" rocking chair, so
named because it features a. portrait and motifs associated with the legendary
Spanish-American War commander. This rocker features a number of details
prized by collectors; it would likely-sell for somewhat less than $1,000.

closely related to Spanish
Moss. Other than weight, gar-
lands of moss do not harm
the tree. As a tree grows
taller and wider, its lower
leaves are densely shaded so
do not photosynthesize. The
tree sheds the useless leaves
and eventually the lower,
shaded branches. Mean-
while, Spanish moss has a
secure, cozy home. Most gar-
deners appreciate this air-
cleaning plant
Neither a moss nor Span-
ish, it is actually a flowering
plant In summer, tiny
greenish-yellow or bluish
flowers are hidden amid the
strands. Look closely to find
them. Most strands grow
from a tiny seed that has a
feathery parachute easily
dispersed by wind, birds
and small mammals. Bro-

ken strands will continue to
grow into an independent
plant if they land on a suit-
able host.
The repeatedly branched
strands are stems with tiny
curled leaves covered in sil-
very-grayish scales. Fes-
toons drape from tree limbs,
sway gracefully in the
breeze and lend an atmos-
phere of laid-back elegance
to southern landscapes. To
remove unwanted, low-
hanging Spanish moss, twirl
a long-handled rake or
clawed cultivator to tangle
the strands, then tug the
mass from its perch. Bag the
yard waste for recycling at
county landfill sites.
Old-timers laid wet, green
moss in trenches and cov-
ered it for half a year or
more until the outer cover-
ing rotted away. The inner
strands were cleaned,
sorted, baled and sold as
stuffing for horse collars,
seat cushions and padding.

packaging.
Redbug chiggers live at
ground level in dense shade
on vegetation like grasses
and low bushes. They seem
to crawl up inside pants legs
then bite in warm, soft
places. The bite itches for
days and can become in-
fected by scratching. Clean
the area with peroxide, then
lessen the itching with a dab
of ammonia or an after-bite
stick. Experienced Florida
hikers tuck pants legs into
their socks, then spray on in-
secticide. Always check for
burrowing ticks and chigger
bites after a trek in the bush.
Spanish moss draping from
trees is not infested with


chiggers or ticks unless it is
on or close to the ground.
Keep garlands trimmed

Flying, gray and endan-
gered fox squirrels gather
Spanish moss to stuff into
their messy nests. Some
birds use strands as nest
material. Gardeners enjoy
thd southern charm of Span-
ish moss festooning the oak
trees and swaying languidly
in the breeze.

ATTIC
Continued from Page E6

The handsome drop-leaf
table with the large drop
leaves and spool-turned legs
is American made. I think it
was produced during the
late 19th to early 20th cen-
tury. Current potential dol-
lar value prices for tables
like these are low. It would
likely sell in the $150 to $300
range.
Dear John: I really like
your radio show. I receive it
on public radio in Inver-
ness. I tried to get on the
radio with you on Saturday,
but could not hold. My item
is a Queen & Co. surveyor's
transit level. It is made of
brass or bronze and in very
good unrestored condition.
I do not have the original
tripod or wood carrying


case. I have had it for about
25 years. I believe it was
made in Philadelphia in the
1880s, but am not sure.
There are no dates on the
transit, there is maker's
mark of Queen & Co. and
the number 5790. The base
has a built-in compass about
5 inches in diameter, and
the scope is clear and gives
a good view. I am looking for
a value, or other collectors
of surveying equipment
Thanks. Keep up the won-
derful show. C.W, Inter-
net
Dear C.W: Queen & Co.
was in business in Philadel-
phia during the late 19th
and early 20th century. They
produced a large quantity of
quality surveying instru-
ments.
In 2009, a transit by Queen
& Co. was estimated at auc-
tion to sell in the $500 to
$800 range; it sold for $300.

Perhaps it was a condition
problem or an off night Cur-
rently, I suspect yours would
sell in the $250 to $500
range.
Dear John: We need help
on an oil painting described
as follows: A painting by G.
Jaeckel, circa 1950s, but
could be much older. My in-
laws lived in Hollywood, FL,
since 1958. Their neighbors
were originally from
Chicago. My father-in-law
used to do odds and ends for
them, as they were older
and had disabilities. Upon


the husband's death, as a
gesture of gratitude, his wife
gave my in-laws a landscape
painting of what appears to
be the Matterhorn in the
Swiss Alps, with a running
brook in the foreground.
The painting appears to
bear the signature of G.
Jaeckel, but the first initial
may not be a G. This oil
painting is on a canvas
stretcher, measures about
31 by42 inches and is in the
original gray ornate frame
with highlights of gold. -

Dear D.MX: I was not able
to find any information
about the artist G. Jaeckel.
The subject matter sounds
like it may be a tourist trade
painting of a famous moun-
tain range that one pur-
chases when visiting the
area.
If you like, send a couple
of good, clear photographs,
perhaps I can give you an
opinion on potential dollar
value.
