by the state.

Pioneer family forced to

vacate property
Staff Writer
CITRONELLE The Hamilton family
cleared the land, grazed cattle on the land,
fenced the land.
They just didn't own the land.

Life and land

Keith Barco speaks for a family that nearly lost their farm because of federal estate taxes. As relatives died, the
family had to pay more taxes in order to keep the property.

Estate taxes presentfinancial burden for farm families

Staff Writer
Benjamin Franklin said it best in
1789: "In this world nothing can be
said to be certain, except death and
Death taxes make it a double
whammy, especially for Citrus
County's long-established farm
families. Even while in bereave-
ment, they face losing their land -
their livelihood -through the cur-
rent federal estate tax structure.
"The federal estate tax is sched-
uled to increase substantially in
2013," said Florida Farm Bureau
President John Hoblick last week.
"Unless Congress acts this year,
many families will not be able to
transfer farms and ranches to the
next generation because they can-
not afford to pay the tax without
selling off their lands."
Cattleman Keith Barco had to
sell land to hang onto the Floral
City ranch his grandfather, Will
Landrum, had homesteaded in
1899. It was not always easy to hang
onto the land.
"After the Depression he lost it,"
Barco said. "The bank foreclosed
on it And then four years later my
uncle bought it. It's stayed in the
family since then."
Landowner siblings Luther and
Sue Jones, Barco's uncle and aunt,
died in 1988 and 1989. Barco's fam-
ily found out then that their attor-
ney had made filing mistakes that
led to a large estate tax debt.

A rooster crows on the Barco property. The Barco farming tradition has been
a way of life for more than 100 years, but with two deaths in the family, they
are 1,000 acres poorer due to federal estate laws.

To keep the old homestead,
Barco's family had to sell other
land they owned in Hernando and
Sumter counties.
"We sold close to 1,000 acres,"
Barco said. "About 600 acres in
Hernando County and 400 scat-
tered around Sumter."
This was land the family had
been using in their beef and hay
business that they may have sold
eventually to improve their Citrus
County homestead.
Some of the homestead property
had been deeded to Barco's

mother, who died in 2000.
"That's when we found out we
had to pay again," Barco said.
Fortunately, the family was able
to meet that expense, but not with-
out some stern observations. Barco
said it's like working the land hard
all your life, then the government
wants about half of its value in
Keeping the homestead together
now is Barco's goal. He said he has
hired an attorney to give the land to

earned the
designation "qualified in
Submarines" at least 50
years ago.
The club's insignia is a
pair of dolphins, their
heads resting on the top of a
submarine. Enlisted sub-
mariners receive silver; of-
ficers receive gold.
One of the inductees to
get his silver dolphins, Phil
Griffith, joined the Navy in
1961 at age 17.
"I couldn't wait to see the
world and Uncle Sam gave
us a periscope to look
through," he said.
Prior to the induction
ceremony, Holland Club
member Jack Townsend
greeted those who had
come to the ceremony by
talking about the life of a
submariner, such as the
tight sleeping quarters,
called "hot bunking," not
showering for days on end,
cockroaches, beautiful sun-
rises, sunsets and tropical
islands and tropical is-
land girls.
"It was a great time to be
an American sailor, a time
when the world's popula-
tion loved American sub-
mariners and men signed
up readily," he said. "Sub-
marine duty was tough, but
we survived it. We wanted
to wear the distinctive in-
signia, a pair of dolphins
over your jumper pocket."
Keynote speaker, retired
Navy captain Tim Holme,
said, "Today we recognize
these submarine vets for all
of their contributions and
say to them, 'Well done ship-
mates.' Thank you for your
splendid and devoted serv-
ice. You represent the living
historical memory of our
rich submarine heritage.
"You are pioneers who
led the way and set the stan-
dards for excellence for
sailors in our submarine
fleet today We would not be
where we are today... with-
out you."

Editor's note: While there was a lot of talk na-
tionwide this past week about who holds the
lucky tickets to the $656 million Mega-Million
lottery prize, there was talk in Citrus County
about some people who experienced losses.

Family flees blaze
A Sunday afternoon blaze
destroyed the home of a
Crystal River family, as well
as their car and boat.
Lynette Vukelja and her
four children heard a "sonic
boom" type sound and fled
the 3,000-square-foot resi-
dence as black smoke filled
the home. While no people
were injured, a friend's dog
that was in the home did not
survive. The American Red
Cross assisted with tempo-
rary accommodations, and
friends helped to provide

Members of the pioneer
Hamilton family lost a
years-long battle with the
state over ownership of sev-
eral lots in Citronelle.
Brothers John Wayne "Pee
Wee" Hamilton and Donald
"Donny Ray" Hamilton,
claimed their grandfather
settled on the property
more than 100 years ago.
The state said it actually
owned the lots and sued to
clear title. Last week, sher-
iff's deputies enforced the
eviction notice on Violet
Hamilton's home, though
some family members said
she had already moved to a
relative's house down the
street. The brothers, who do
not live on the property,
were arrested on trespass-
ing charges.
temporarily lost
A computer glitch was the
apparent cause of a lost pay-

ment to Citrus Memorial
Health System. Several
months ago, a Chassahow-
itzka man had a procedure
done, paid his bill and went
on with his life. A few weeks
ago, a collection agency told
him to cough up $356. Hos-
pital officials quickly recti-
fied the situation, but
acknowledged that the
glitch did result in others in-
correctly being billed. The
hospital apologizes and
urges anyone receiving a
similar inquiry from a col-
lection agency to call 352-
Losing the lyngbya
Not all the news about
losses reported this past
week reflected bad things.
Crystal River resident Art
Jones and dozens of volun-
teers dug in with pitch forks
last weekend to facilitate the
loss of lyngbya algae from the
swimming area at Hunter
Springs Park. Then on
Thursday evening, the Save
Kings Bay group and sponsor
Kings Bay Rotary raised
money to continue their ef-
forts in a celebrity bartender
even at Burke's of Ireland.
Paying the price
When the county turned
over management of its
Chassahowitzka River
Campground to private
managers, some who use
the facility grew agitated be-
cause they are now ex-
pected to pay for parking -
$5 for vehicles and $7 for ve-
hicles and trailers for the
day. Under county oversight,
enforcement of the pre-ex-
isting parking fees was ad-
mittedly lax.

Pharmacists allowed
to give vaccinations
Florida pharmacists can
now give vaccinations for
pneumonia and shingles
under a bill sign by Gov. Rick
Scott. The measure (HB 509)
was signed into law Friday.
The new law is a compro-
mise with doctors and in-
cludes a provision allowing
the shots only if prescribed
by a physician.
Scott repeals Florida
cap and trade law
Gov. Rick Scott has signed
a bill repealing a cap and
trade law designed to control
power plant emissions in
Florida. Scott signed the bill
(HB 4001) on Friday.
The law was never imple-
mented since the Legislature
passed it in 2008 at the urg-
ing of then-Gov. Charlie Crist.
It was intended as a mar-
ket-based approach to con-
trolling greenhouse gas
emissions that are contribut-
ing to global warming.

Boards seek agreement to discuss hospital plan

Staff Writer
INVERNESS -Attorneys for the
two Citrus Memorial hospital
groups are negotiating a plan that
would return trustees to the foun-
dation board so they can participate
in a private meeting to discuss the
hospital's business plan.
Attorneys Clark Stillwell of the
Citrus Memorial Health System
Foundation Board of Directors and
Bill Grant of the Citrus County Hos-
pital Board are moving toward an
agreement that brings trustees back
as voting members of the founda-

tion board without interfering with
ongoing litigation between the two
The foundation and CCHB are
locked in a legal dispute over a new
law that gives trustees oversight of
the hospital. The foundation sued to
overturn the law and a judge ruled
for the trustees. The foundation ap-
pealed and the district court of ap-
peal in Tallahassee has set a May 7
deadline for both sides to submit
written arguments.
Meanwhile, foundation members
say they want trustees involved in
the hospital's strategic plan. State
law allows the foundation to meet

in private so it isn't forced to divulge
its plans to competitors.
Grant and Stillwell agree the only
way trustees can join that closed
meeting is to be a formal member of
the foundation, which is charged
with operating the hospital.
Trustees had been foundation
members, but they resigned in 2009
as the dispute between the two
groups worsened.
Stillwell said he hoped to have a
proposed agreement for foundation
directors at their April 23 meeting
that would return trustees as voting
members of the foundation board.

YMCA Winter Basketball League wraps up season

Special to the Chronicle
The Citrus County YMCA
wrapped up its 2012 Basket-
ball Season on Saturday,
April 7, at the Chet Cole Life En-
richment Center Special recogni-
tion was given to the players and
coaches in the league on its clos-
ing day
The league, which started Jan.
16, ran for 10 weeks, with prac-
tices once a week at both the gym-
nasium at the Key Training
Center in Crystal River, and also
CREST school in Lecanto. A total
of eight teams and eight games
were played during the season.
"We would like to say a special
thank you to Stephen Sante Fe at
CREST school for letting us use
their facility for practices," said
Joanna Castle, executive director
for the Citrus County Y, "and to
Chet Cole, and the Key Training
for the use of their gym for both
games and practices. We appreci-
ate their support of the YMCA and
its programs, and for them open-
ing the doors to us, so that we can
provide healthy activities that en-
hance youth development."
The children involved in the
league learned the basics of their

chosen sport, teamwork, leader-
ship skills and respect.
"I'm really impressed with the
YMCA basketball league and I'm
thankful for the opportunity to
coach such great kids," said volun-
teer coach Ryan Blakeslee. "I'm
very thankful for the support from
each child's parents and I'm re-
ally excited about the improve-
ment of my team's skills and their
enthusiasm for the game of bas-
ketball, and I will definitely volun-
teer again next year"
There were a total of nine
teams in the league and one
cheerleading squad, so without
volunteers such as Coach
Blakeslee, the league would not
have been possible. Six volun-
teers served as coaches for the
league, dedicating themselves to
working with the youth here in
Citrus County.
'A very special thanks goes out
to Chris Thompson, Tim Kuntz,
Jimmy DeVaughn, Tony Panella,
Ryan Blakeslee and William
Cleveland, for their hard work
and time put into this league,"
said Program Director Sara
Bargiel. "Together, these gentle-
men put in a total of 350 volunteer
hours during this 10-week league,

and they were all very engaged
and dedicated to their teams."
"This was my first year coach-
ing," said volunteer coach An-
thony Panella, "and I hope to be
able to do it again. I had quite a
diverse team with regards to skill
levels, yet watched them all work
together to bring one another up
and support each other ... it was
"The social growth and per-
sonal growth for the kids made all
the teams and kids No. 1."
Along with honoring the
coaches with special recognition,
the Citrus YMCA gave awards to
all the players who participated
in the league.
"It was a fantastic season," said
Bargiel. "We look forward to hav-
ing another league later in the

he said.
Grant agreed.
"As long as they can work out the
hurdles, we're good to go," he said.
Grant said trustees want to dis-
cuss the hospital's future publicly,
but they will not reveal details of
the foundation's private strategic
plan meeting.
"We're not going to run out of this
meeting and make trouble," he said.
"I want to applaud the foundation's
legal team for preparing this and
helping us get through this issue."

Duke and Progress spend
combined $19M lobbying
CHARLOTTE, N.C. The merger of
Duke Energy and Progress Energy
could create not just the biggest utility in
the U.S., but also the biggest lobbyist in

The Charlotte Observer reported the
utilities spent a combined $19 million on
state and federal campaigns and lobby-
ing in the 2009-10 election cycle.
If that spending continued after the
proposed merger, the combined utility

would spend more politically than Bank
of America.
Progress Energy spokesman Mike
Hughes said lobbying is critical in a
heavily regulated, complex industry like
power generation.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Com-

the utilities to merge. The combined
company would serve 7.1 million cus-

Man accused of $11M

Former NFL star Warren
Sapp owes more than $6.7
million to creditors and

Sapp's $6.45 million in as-

a huge debt hanging over
her family's head from the
federal estate taxes after
the death of her grandfa-
ther, Jim Rooks.
The patriarch of the
Rooks family, Jim Rooks
was active in the early de-
velopment of Citrus
County. He donated land
for right of ways for county
roads and helped his
But when Jim Rooks,
died in 1957 without an ef-
fective estate management
plan, his children were hit
with federal estate taxes.
They did not have money,
just land, and the govern-
ment appraised it.
Thomas said the land
was assessed like real es-
tate lots, not agricultural
acreage. The debt was

huge. Consider what it
would be like today.
In 1957, the average na-
tional wage was $3,641.72.
The average national
wage in 2010 was 11.4
times as much: $41,673.83.
In 1957, the Rooks family
of Inverness had to borrow
$270,000 to pay estate
Compared to the 2010
national wage, the Rooks'
debt would have amounted
to more than $3 million in
2010 dollars.
In addition to borrowing
money, the Rookses also
sold timber, about 3,000
acres of agricultural land
and about 400 head of cat-
tle to pay the death tax.
The Rooks family raises
cattle, but for several years
following Jim Rooks'
death, they had to sell all
their calves, which meant
they could not keep any as
replacement heifers.
The huge debt load and
work load was shared by
the four Rooks brothers:
James, Albert, Valentine
and Almyr. It was not until
1989 that they could put
down the debt: 32 years of
heavy payments while

working hard in fields and
raising their own families.
By 1989, Thomas was
married and had children
of her own. She had grown
up in the shadow of the
debt. She worked con-
stantly as a child, making
her own clothes, growing
her own food and doing
without treats most chil-
dren expect.
Thomas never got to go
to the movies until she
was an adult. She did not
grow up during the Great
Depression; this was the
1950s and 1960s, when
most people were enjoy-
ing Post World War II
Thomas said farm fami-
lies love what they do and
can't bear the thought of
losing the land even as
they learn it is hard work.
"If you don't grow up in
it, there is no way you are
going to choose to farm,"
Thomas said. "Losing the
land through taxes breaks
the chain. Where is food
going to come from if we
don't grow it? Will we buy
all our food from
Thomas' and Barco's ex-


periences are just two sto-
ries. It's common among
agriculture families and
those in other small busi-
nesses. But it's particu-
larly hard on land-based
Both the Florida Farm
Bureau and the American
Farm Bureau have called
for the elimination of the
estate tax. The Death Tax
Repeal Permanency Act of
2012 (S.2242) was intro-
duced into the Senate last
week and would eliminate
the estate tax. A similar
bill, H.R. 1259, has been in-
troduced into the House.
The Florida Farm Bu-
reau has praised U.S. Sen.
Marco Rubio for his sup-
port of the legislation to
help shield farm opera-
tions from the potentially
overwhelming burden of
the federal estate tax.
"We greatly appreciate
Sen. Rubio's good efforts
to eliminate what amounts
to be a death tax for the
current generation of farm
producers," Hoblick said.

Navy jet crash a 'Good Friday miracle'- but how?

Associated Press
A 12-ton Navy jet loaded
with tons of fuel crashes in a
spectacular fireball into a
big apartment complex, scat-

it that everyone survived?
The mayor of Virginia

pilots marveled at how a
failed training flight that en-

killing anyone. The student

but all were out of the hos-

Investigators, witnesses
and experts said multiple
factors were at play:
Most of the F/A-18D
jet's fuel was dumped be-

flames after they safely

NEW YORK A listless
late shift dragged on that
night in the newsroom of
The Associated Press and,
across town, at The New

Feet up on the AP city
desk, an editor named
Charles Crane read an H.G.

At the Times, the manag-

had returned from his usual
late supper to an office
where a forgettable story
about a political feud was
being readied for the front
page. A copy boy dozed.
In the midst of this som-
nolence at a little after mid-
night on April 15, 1912, no
one knew that, 1,000 miles
away, the "story of the cen-

that would change so many
things, including news cov-

the great ocean liner had
been sending out distress
signals. "CQD, CQD," the
coded Morse message re-
peated, then the now more-
familiar "SOS."
The urgent calls were
picked up by other ships -
some of which turned to-
ward the Titanic's reported
location for rescue and
the signals reached onshore
receiving stations of the rel-
atively new Marconi wire-
less radio system.
There, each scrap of de-
tail was eagerly snatched
up, passed on, then passed
on again.
In no time, the electrify-
ing words reached New
York. In the AP newsroom,
Crane's yawn became a gasp
when a colleague burst in

from an outer office waving
a wire message from
Canada: "Reported Titanic
struck iceberg."
Instantly, editors started
contacting coastal receiving
stations to glean whatever
they knew, phoned the Ti-
tanic's owners, cabled Lon-
don for a list of passengers -
who might now be doomed.
"We put out a 'flash' and
the bare report of the
crash," Crane recalled years
later in a recollection now
kept in the AP Corporate
Archive. That news story,
stitching together the un-
thinkable bits of detail from
wireless messages, went
everywhere in seconds.
At the Times, the now
wide-awake copy boy stood
by as Van Anda absorbed
the one-paragraph wire
"CAPE RACE, Newfound-
land, Sunday Night, April 14
(AP) At 10:25 o'clock
tonight the White Star Line
steamship Titanic called
'CQD' to the Marconi station
here, and reported having
struck an iceberg. The
steamer said that immediate
assistance was required."
The Times presses were
already running for an early
edition. The managing edi-
tor fired off assignments
and began composing a new
front page, trying to make
sense of the silence that, ac-
cording to wire updates, had
followed the repeated dis-
tress calls.
Editors of many other pa-
pers would respond by
"playing the story safe by
printing the bulletins and
writing stories that indi-
cated that no great harm
could come to the 'unsink-
able' Titanic. Not Van
Anda," wrote Meyer Berger
in a history of the Times.
"Cold reasoning told him
she was gone. Paralyzing as
the thought was, he acted on

don headline reassured in
the confusing early coverage.
In Paris, Le Figaro lamented
"La Catastrophe du Titanic."
Front pages in Australia
echoed the tragedy for days.
Reporters everywhere
sought to localize the story-
one paper even measuring
the ship's immensity by imag-
ining it berthed on the town's
street grid. A Kentucky head-
line solemnly summed up:
"Millionaire and Peasant,
Shoulder to Shoulder, Go to
Their Death..."
Errol Somay who oversaw
a Library of Virginia exhibit
of the universal coverage,
said, "The thing that struck
me was the news cycle like
9/11: the coverage of the
chaos of the event, then the
human interest stories, then
the fingerpointing.... We have
to figure out whom to blame."
The Titanic story estab-
lished "a full-speed-ahead,
all-hands-on-deck kind of
coverage," as journalism ed-
ucator Roy Peter Clark of
the Poynter Institute put it,
that has been repeated in
countless disasters since.
"There's evidence that that
goes back to this event"
The coverage showcased
the benefits and dangers
- of seizing a new, instant-
communication technology
It established standards and
new standard-bearers.
The story became a turn-
ing point for The New York

Times. Its coverage would
distinguish it among the
city's 20 or so dailies, setting
it on course to "secure claim
to a position of preemi-
nence ... among American
newspapers that it would
never relinquish," wrote
Daniel Allen Butler in his
history, "Unsinkable: The
Full Story of RMS Titanic."
Broadcast news, too, got a
strong push with this story
David Sarnoff, a young Mar-
coni operator, made a name
for himself with days of non-
stop updates from a store-
front window in New York,
drawing crowds so large the
police had to keep order. It
was the start of a pioneering
radio career that saw
Sarnoff become the long-
serving head of NBC.
The Titanic went down at
a time when wireless, a
technology that would be-
come ubiquitous, was just
taking hold comparable
to our adjustment today to
Twitter and the like.
As the stricken ship's
messages were picked up,
sometimes by amateurs
with Marconi receivers,
"you'd get these wireless op-
erators that knew reporters
and editors at newspapers,
and they said, 'Here's what's
going on,"' historian Butler
said in an interview. "This
was very much a social net-
work- they were using dots
and dashes rather than im-
ages over an LCD screen."

when Florida squatters set
the boundaries and families
defended their property
rights with pistols and rifles.
On Wednesday morning,
Citrus County sheriff's
deputies, armed with a
court-ordered eviction no-
tice, removed items from Vi-
olet Hamilton's house facing
Dunklin Street
Mrs. Hamilton wasn't
home and, according to
some family members, had
moved down the street to a
relative's home a few weeks
Her two sons, John Wayne
"Pee Wee" Hamilton and
Donald "Donny Ray"
Hamilton, also grew up in
the house but live else-
where. Still, they defiantly
- and peacefully de-
fended the family honor by
refusing to budge until
deputies led them away in
handcuffs, each charged
with trespassing.
Relatives and friends
looked on in disgust as
county and state officers se-
cured the area with yellow
crime scene tape, and then
set household appliances
and furniture along the

A quick look at the prop-
erty appraiser's map of Cit-
ronelle can see the
potential for confusion
along Hamilton Road.
Several lots are marked
as owned by the state of
Florida. Mixed in are lots
owned by members of the
Hamilton family
For many decades, some
Hamiltons have counted all
of it as theirs.
In reality, according to
state and court records, the
Hamiltons forfeited much of
that property in the early
20th century because their
heirs didn't pay the taxes
The state took possession
of more than 70 lots on 45
acres under a law later
called the Murphy Act. Ba-
sically, it says lands for-
feited to the state for
failure to pay taxes were re-


verted to state ownership
by 1939 if the taxes were not
The state acknowledged
that people would still be-
lieve they owned rights to
the land. So the laws were
updated to say anyone who
paid taxes since 1971, and
made a claim of ownership
against the state by 1985
could receive title to the
According to records, the
Hamiltons did neither.
Small pockets of Murphy
Act parcels exist across
Florida, including a handful
in Citrus County. Most of the
original parcels were sold
or saved as public lands for
State officials said a pri-
vate company approached
them in 2004 about buying
the Citronelle property.
State officials, knowing the
Hamiltons were controlling
much of the land, said they
tried negotiate land swaps
so the Hamiltons could keep

Dunklin Street
Hamilton brothers Pee
Wee and Donny Ray, and
their mother Violet, refused,
and the state sued in 2007 to
clear title to the lots.
The court file includes
many letters written to
Judge Patricia Thomas from
both Pee Wee and Donny
Ray Hamilton.
Pee Wee, in particular,
said he had deeds proving
family ownership. The at-
torney representing the
state repeatedly demanded
to see the deeds, but all
Hamilton provided was a
1946 document showing his
grandfather paying $5 for
property known as area "A."
Pee Wee Hamilton in-
sisted the property included
the disputed lands and that
the state needed to back off
its claim.
His said his father, Edgar,
who died in August 2004,
tried to protect the family
"My father passed away
worrying about his family's
future due to the family
property being stolen right
out from under him," Pee
Wee Hamilton wrote.
Edgar's widow, Violet,
also wrote to the judge: "I've
lived here for 55 years. This
is my home."
State officials, however,
say the Hamiltons never fol-
lowed the legal protocol to
receive title to the home-
stead or several other lands.

The Hamilton property.

The Murphy Act required
anyone with a claim to make

Cease-fire ahead?

Associated Press
Free Syrian Army fighters try to spot a sniper during fighting with Syrian troops Friday in a suburb of Damascus, Syria. Syrian government
shelling and offensives against rebel-held towns killed dozens of people across the country on Saturday, activists said, as the U.S. posted on-
line satellite images of troop deployments that cast further doubt on whether the regime intends to comply with an internationally sponsored
peace plan.

US warns Syria it can't deceive world overpullout;

Associated Press
BEIRUT -The U.S. warned Syria it won't
be able to deceive the world about compli-
ance with a cease-fire that is just days away,
as regime forces pounded more opposition
strongholds Saturday in an apparent rush to
crush resistance before troops must with-
draw. Activists said more than 100 people
were killed, including at least 87 civilians.
Almost half died in a Syrian army raid on
the central village of al-Latamneh, activists
said. Amateur video from the village showed
the body of a baby with bloodied clothes and
an apparent bullet wound in the chest. On
another video, a barrage of shells is heard
hitting a neighborhood of Homs as the restive
city's skyline is engulfed in white smoke.
Syrian President Bashar Assad last week
accepted a cease-fire agreement brokered by
international envoy Kofi Annan calling for
government forces to withdraw from towns

and villages by Tuesday, and for the regime
and rebels to lay down their arms by 6 a.m.
Thursday The truce is meant to pave the way
for negotiations between the government and
the opposition over Syria's political future.
However, Western leaders are skeptical
about Assad's intentions because of broken
promises of the past and the recent escalation
in attacks on opposition strongholds, including
arrest sweeps and shelling of civilian areas.
The U.S. ambassador to Syria posted online
satellite images late Friday that he said cast
doubt on the regime's readiness to pull out
"This is not the reduction in offensive Syr-
ian government security operations that all
agree must be the first step for the Annan ini-
tiative to succeed," Ambassador Robert Ford
wrote on the embassy's Facebook page.
Ford posted photos he said show the gov-
ernment has pulled back some forces, but
kept others in place or simply shifted around
troops and armored vehicles. Earlier this

Western leaders skeptical

week, the government claimed it had with-
drawn from several areas.
"The regime and the Syrian people should
know that we are watching," Ford wrote, cit-
ing satellite surveillance. "The regime can-
not hide the truth."
The ambassador, who left Syria in Febru-
ary amid security concerns, said the Syrian
government must give U.N. monitors access
to confirm its compliance with the cease-fire.
A U.N. advance team arrived in Damascus
earlier this week; Annan's spokesman has
said the U.N.-Arab league envoy hopes to put
together a team of 200 to 250 observers.
Syria says the details of the mission have
not been worked out.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, mean-
while, expressed alarm about escalating vio-
lence, saying Tuesday's deadline for a troop
pullback "is not an excuse for continued killing."
On Friday, he urged the regime to cease all mil-
itary action immediately and unconditionally

Pope holds Easter candle at basilica vigil

Associated Press

VATICAN CITY-Pope Benedict
XVI, carrying a tall, lit candle, ush-
ered in Christianity's most joyous
celebration with an Easter vigil
service Saturday night, but voiced
fears that mankind is groping in
darkness, unable to distinguish
good from evil. Easter for Christians
commemorates Christ's triumph
over death with his resurrection fol-
lowing his crucifixion.

"Life is stronger than death. Good
is stronger than evil. Love is stronger
than hate. Truth is stronger than
lies," Benedict, wearing white robes
in a symbol of new life, told the faith-
ful in a packed St Peter's Basilica.
Still, Benedict worried in his hom-
ily: "The darkness that poses a real
threat to mankind, after all, is the fact
that he can see and investigate tangi-
ble material things, but cannot see
where the world is going or whence
it comes, where our own life is going,

what is good and what is evil."
"The darkness enshrouding God
and obscuring values is the real
threat to our existence and to the
world in general," the pope said.
"If God and moral values, the dif-
ference between good and evil, re-
main in darkness, then all other
'lights,' that put such incredible
technical feats within our reach,
are not only progress but also dan-
gers that put us and the world at
risk," Benedict added.

Dear Annie: Thirty
years ago, our son
was diagnosed with
schizophrenia. He has been
hospitalized more than
once, although he believes it
was only to "punish" him. In
the past few years, he has
refused all psychiatric
"Robert" has
lived independ-
ently for 18 years.
He displays delu-
sional and para-
noid behavior We
do not know
whether he still
takes the antipsy-
chotic medicine
that was pre-
scribed 20 years
We are grateful
that he doesn't ANN
drink or do MAIL
drugs, but he is a
chain smoker
and eats voraciously His
weight is more than 300
pounds, and he is diabetic
and takes blood pressure
He has anger issues and
an irrational fear of being
injected with anything.
Mental health profes-
sionals have given up on
him. Robert doesn't seem
to fit in anywhere.
Living alone only wors-
ens his illness, but he is
averse to being told what to
do. How do I help him? -
Fear for My Son
Dear Fear: It's terribly
sad and stressful, but there
is only so much you can do
to protect a mentally ill
adult who refuses to take
medication, get therapy or
be helped in any way

Mental Illness offers a 12-

Dear Annie: I read the
letter from "Ex-In-Laws,"
who are getting calls from
debt collectors looking for
their ex-daughter-in-law
Please inform them that
all they need to do is call
the phone com-
pany and put a
block on the un-
wanted calls.
They should
'4 then inform the
law about the
route they took
to rid themselves
of what is a
. j intrusion. Hope
this helps. -
IE'S Ann from
BOX Louisiana
Dear Ann:
Blocking calls
can work, but it requires
regular maintenance be-
cause debt collectors often
will call from different
numbers when the old
ones are blocked. But it's
worth trying.

Happy Easter to all our
Christian readers.

Death knell for books premature

The traditional book-
publishing business,
like the music busi-
ness and the movie business
before it, is struggling to
deal with the dig-
ital marketplace.
And just like the
music business

ness, the book
business has bob-
bled it.
Borders didn't
go bankrupt be-
cause traditional
book business Ji
was so good. MUL
Barnes & Noble
is teetering.
Every dollar a publisher
makes selling a $9.99 book on
Kindle is a dollar it didn't
make selling a $26 book in a
brick-and-mortar store.
But when I hear a person
say, "I'll never buy one of
those Kindle things. Call me
old-fashioned, but I like the
feel of a book in my hand,"
what I hear is, "I'll never use
one of those newfangled mi-
crowaves." Almost everyone
has a microwave in the
kitchen now. Yet I don't know
anyone who threw out his
conventional stove once he
got a microwave. We're very
comfortable using both. We
make our food on the stove,

and we defrost it and reheat
it in the microwave. One
doesn't preclude the other.
The future of print is much
the same. Print books, digital
books and sound
recordings of
books will coexist
peacefully for a
long, long time.
And the book
business just
might learn there
is money to be
made in the long
run. For years, the
M movie industry
LEN fought VCRs. (For
those of you who
came in late, a
VCR was what we used to
record TV programs before
DVDs and TiVo.) As soon as
the industry stopped fighting
the technology, it started
making more money than
ever. It will be the same for
The really big change will
not be in how we read some-
thing, but in what we read.
The whole definition of a
book has changed. I might
buy the digital version of the
latest Stephen King book,
but now I also can buy the
print version of my niece's
photographs from her class
trip. It's really more of a me-
mento than a book, but it

looks just like a book, and I
ordered it from her Web
page. At last, you don't need
the OK of some snooty editor
to put that tale of young love
thwarted by war, a couple of
bad marriages, zombies, an-
other war, vampires and a
Xanax addiction between
Anyone can be an author
now, as long as he or she
doesn't mind the low pay and
long hours. Just put your
words on Kindle, sit back
and wait for the money to
roll in. Amazon.com lists
more than 5 million books on
its website. I read about a
hundred books a year. So I
should finish them all in
about, hmmmm, 50,000
One of the books I read
this year was a series of sto-
ries a writer had done for a
magazine during the past
few years. By and large, the
words of the stories were ex-
actly the same as they ap-
peared in the magazine,
where they ran next to ads
for shoes, underwear, vaca-
tions and stockbrokers.
The price of the book was
$26. But let's say the inside
back cover of the book was
an ad for a cosmetics com-
pany or a car company, and
because of that advertising

money, the publisher was
able to sell the book for $23. I
know what would happen.
The publishing world, the
readers and the pundits
would be universally ap-
palled. I can almost hear
some people saying, "We
read books to get away from
that sort of thing."
Why? How would advertis-
ing corrupt the book-reading
experience? It doesn't seem
to affect the words when they
appear in a magazine or a
newspaper, but somehow it
changes them in book form?
What if the publisher sold
the center spread and the in-
side front cover, too? Now
the $26 book might sell for
$9.99. Everyone would make
the same money as before -
maybe more, because a less
expensive book may well sell
more copies than an expen-
sive one.
Is that the future? I don't
know. Fifty years ago, they
told us we'd be driving flying
cars to work.

Florida's QB competition continues into fall

Brissett, Driskel highlight Gators'

Orange and Blue springfootball game

Associated Press
Florida tight end Omarius Hines fends off defender Jabari Gorman during the
Gators' Orange and Blue spring football game Saturday in Gainesville, Ha.


Associated Press
Florida's quarterback competi-
tion will continue in the fall -
and without a front-runner
- after Jacoby Bris-
sett and Jeff Driskel
failed to separate
themselves during
four weeks of prac-
tice and Saturday's
spring game.
Brissett was 9 of 16 for 233
yards and two touchdowns.
Driskel was 12 of 14 for 147 yards,
and ran for a score.
Brissett took the first snap with

the first-team offense, a likely in-
dicator that he's ahead, and com-
pleted deep passes to Latroy
Pittman and Michael McNeely
Driskel, who lost the backup job
to Brissett in the middle of
L last season, found
Andre Debose for a
44-yard gain.
Both sophomore
showed considerably
more pocket presence than
they did in 2011, but neither did
enough to make coach Will
Muschamp pick a starter

Peter Hanson reacts after making a birdie putt on the 17th hole during the third round of the Masters golf tournament Saturday in
Augusta, Ga. Hanson birdied the final two holes to take a one-shot lead over the hard-charging Phil Mickelson.

Hanson birdies 4 of last 5 holes to assume Masters lead after 3 rounds

Associated Press
Mickelson raised the putter in
his right hand and slammed
down his left fist to celebrate
a 20-foot eagle putt that shook
Augusta National with the
loudest roar on a day filled
with them.
Peter Hanson knew what
was going on behind him
without looking Saturday He
also knew exactly what he
had to do.
The 34-year-old Swede,
playing in only his second
Masters, answered by making
four birdies over the last five
holes for a 7-under 65, the
lowest score of the tourna-
ment, to take a one-shot lead

into the final round.
"I'm standing in the middle
of the fairway and I feel him
breathing down my neck a lit-
tle bit," Hanson said.
He followed with an ap-
proach into 2
feet for birdie,
a 15-foot putt More I

on the 15th, a n For Saturd
30-foot birdie and Sunda
putt over the please see
ridge on the
17th and one last birdie at the
18th with a shot that stopped
inside 3 feet from the cup.
What a finish and it's all
just beginning.
The advantage going into
Sunday belongs to Mickelson,
a three-time Masters cham-


pion who thrilled the sun-
baked crowd with some magi-
cal shots. Mickelson shot 30 on
the back nine, including a
birdie on the par-5 15th when
he played a full flop shot with
a 64-degree
wedge no
asters one even
thinks about
's par scores hitting a shot
s tee times, like that-to 4
age B4. feet
He wound
up with a 66 and was in the
final group at the Masters for
the fourth time in the last nine
years. Mickelson won the last
three times he was in that
spot, and on Sunday he faces
a Swede whom he trounced in
the Ryder Cup two years ago

in Wales.
"I love it here, and I love
nothing more than being in
the last group on Sunday at
the Masters," Mickelson
said. "It's the great thing in
professional golf."
Hanson, who has never
been closer than seven shots
going into the lead at any
major, was at 9-under 207.
Mickelson gave the leader-
board some star power when
so many others faded or, in
the case of Tiger Woods, never
came close to getting there.
Woods now has gone 26 con-
secutive holes on the back
nine at Augusta without a
birdie. He had to settle for a

team," Muschamp said. "Both
guys made vertical plays down the
field, good decisions where they
took the ball. You saw what I've
been seeing from 14 practices
previous to today We can win with
both guys."
Both struggled in relief of John
Brantley in 2011, raising ques-
tions about how quickly
Muschamp can turn things
around in Gainesville.
The Gators beat Ohio State in
the Gator Bowl to avoid their first
losing season since 1979. And the
offense, which ranked 105th in
the nation, was the program's
worst in more than two decades.

Weis left after one season to take

fences at Citi Field, leading R.A.
Dickey and the New York Mets over
the Atlanta Braves 4-2 on Saturday
David Wright kept hitting with a
homer and two singles as the Mets
improved to 2-0 for the first time
since 2009. Coming off a down year
and injury-interrupted spring train-
ing, the All-Star had two hits and
drove in the only run in Thursday's
opener against Atlanta.
Josh Thole lined a go-ahead single

Greinke (1-0) continued the dominant
form he showed at Miller Park all last

the long-awaited return to the mound for
the Cardinals'Adam Wainwright, who
missed all of the 2011 season after hav-
ing elbow surgery.

Miami out of its early slump, getting three
hits and driving in three runs, and the

their first victory of the season.
Omar Infante, Hanley Ramirez and
John Buck homered for the Marlins, who
managed a total of one run and seven
hits while losing their first two games. In-
fante also had a double and a triple.

when he hit 34 homers last season, pro-
vided the go-ahead runs with a bases-
loaded single off Mat Latos (0-1).
Ricky Nolasco (1-0) gave up six hits in
eight innings, including Joey Votto's first
homer since signing a new contract with
an additional 10 years and $225 million.
Nationals 7, Cubs 4
CHICAGO -Adam LaRoche homered
and matched a career-high with four hits,
and the Washington Nationals again ral-
lied late against Kerry Wood and Carlos
Marmol, scoring five runs in the eighth to
beat the Chicago Cubs 7-4.
LaRoche drove a two-run shot off Matt
Garza in the fourth. The Cubs chased Gio
Gonzalez with three in the bottom half to
go up 4-2. But Washington sent up 11
batters in the eighth and hammered
Wood (0-1) and Marmol again after they
faltered in a 2-1 loss on Thursday.
Danny Espinosa started the winning
rally with a two-out solo homer in the
eighth off Wood, who walked three straight
to force in the tying run in the opener.

doubles and the quick-striking Arizona
Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco
Giants 5-4.
The kings of the comeback last sea-
son, the Diamondbacks have been fast
starters in 2012, scoring seven runs the
first two innings their first two games.
Hill drove in three of those: A solo
homer off Madison Bumgarner (0-1) in
the first inning and a two-run shot in the
second. Young also hit the first of his RBI
doubles in the first, giving starter Daniel
Hudson (1-0) just enough cushion to
open with a victory after struggling early
last season.
Pablo Sandoval and Brett Pill each hit
two-run homers for the Giants.
Astros 7, Rockies 3
HOUSTON J.D. Martinez homered
and drove in three runs and the National
League's youngest team, the Houston
Astros, beat baseball's oldest player, 49-
year-old Jamie Moyer, and the Colorado
Rockies 7-3.
Jordan Schafer took it deep leading off
for the Astros and Martinez's two-run shot
in the fourth made it 3-0.
With gray stubble covering his chin and
hair of the same color peeking out the
edge of his cap, Moyer (0-1) become the
oldest player to appear in a game since
1980, when 54-year-old Minnie Minoso
played in a game for the White Sox.
Pirates 2, Phillies 1, 10 innings
PITTSBURGH -Alex Presley sin-
gled home Mike McKenry with two outs
in the bottom of the 10th to lift the Pitts-
burgh Pirates to a 2-1 win over the
Philadelphia Phillies.
Rod Barajas, brought in by the Pirates in

the offseason to provide some power, dou-
bled off Philadelphia reliever Joe Blanton
(0-1) leading off the inning and pinch-runner
McKenry came home three batters later
when Presley beat out an infield single.
Juan Cruz (1-0), a non-roster invitee to
spring training, won in relief. Presley had
two of Pittsburgh's six hits.
Cliff Lee gave up one run in six innings
for Philadelphia.
American League

Tigers 10, Red Sox 0
DETROIT Prince Fielder hit his first
two home runs with the Detroit Tigers and
Miguel Cabrera added a pair of his own in
a 10-0 rout of the Boston Red Sox.
Fielder signed a $214 million, nine-year
deal with Detroit in the offseason, forming
a powerful middle of the order with Cabr-
era that was on full display against Red
Sox starter Josh Beckett (0-1). Cabrera
opened the scoring in the first inning with
a two-run shot to left-center, and Fielder
added a solo homer in the fourth to the
same part of the ballpark.
Cabrera and Fielder hit back-to-back
solo homers in the fifth.
Duane Below (1-0) got the win in relief
after Detroit starter Doug Fister left in the
fourth with a strain in his left side.
Royals 6, Angels 3
ANAHEIM, Calif. Luke Hochevar
took a shutout into the seventh inning and
the Kansas City Royals got solo homers
from Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas
against Dan Haren in a 6-3 victory over
the Los Angeles Angels.
Albert Pujols got his first hit with Los
Angeles, a double in the fourth.
Hochevar (1-0) was charged with two
runs and five hits over 6 1-3 innings in his
season debut.
Haren (0-1) gave up five runs and 11
hits over 5 1-3 innings and struck out five.
Blue Jays 7, Indians 4,
12 innings
CLEVELAND Rajai Davis hit a two-
run double in the 12th inning, Toronto ral-
lied for the second straight game against
Cleveland's bullpen and the Blue Jays beat
the Indians in extra innings again, 7-4.
Davis' hit off Tony Sipp (0-1) gave the
Blue Jays a 5-3 lead and they held on to
win another extra-inning game between the
teams, who set a major league record by
playing the longest opening-day game in
history-- a 16-inning marathon Thursday.
Kelly Johnson homered for the Blue
Jays and Toronto starter Brandon Morrow
allowed one hit in seven innings.
Indians starter Ubaldo Jimenez, pitch-
ing as he appeals a five-game suspen-
sion, took a no-hitter into the seventh.
Orioles 8, Twins 2
BALTIMORE Tommy Hunter took a
four-hitter into the eighth inning, Nick
Markakis went 3 for 4 with a homer and
the Baltimore Orioles cruised past the
Minnesota Twins 8-2.
Adam Jones and Matt Wieters also
homered for the Orioles, who will seek to
complete a three-game sweep on Sun-
day. Baltimore has won six straight over
Minnesota by a combined score of 36-8.
After beating the Twins 4-2 on opening
day, the Orioles went up 6-0 against
Francisco Liriano (0-1) after four innings
and coasted to the finish. Markakis home-
red in a second straight game, Ronny
Paulino got four hits and scored twice in
his Baltimore debut and Robert Andino
contributed two hits and two RBIs.

Rest of MLB catching
up with big spenders
League Baseball is starting to
spread the wealth.
The Miami Marlins, Detroit
Tigers, Texas Rangers and Los
Angeles Angels all had hefty
boosts in payroll during the off-
season, along with the Tampa
Bay Rays and Kansas City
Royals, according to a study of
major league contracts by The
Associated Press.
Some traditional high rollers
had huge drops, including the
New York Mets, Chicago Cubs
and Chicago White Sox.

72 and was 12 shots behind,
his largest 54-hole deficit
ever at the Masters.
But he wasn't alone.
U.S. Open champion Rory
Mcllroy, who started the day
one shot out of the lead,
made double bogey from the
trees on the first hole and it
only got worse from there.
He had three 6s on his card
and went out in 42, finishing
with a 77 that left him 10
shots behind. He played
with Sergio Garcia, who
shot 75. Neither made a
B birdie until No. 12, and they

2 green to celebrate.
3 Fred Couples, at 52 the
oldest player atop the

tried to stay in the game. He

likely never been wider.
When he returned to golf at
the Masters in 2010, a few
months after that fateful post-
Thanksgiving slalom down
the driveway of his Florida
mansion, he vowed to respect
the game. Back then, Woods
had no idea it was going to be
this hard.
'All this club dropping all
the time, he seems dis-
gusted," said Hank Haney, his
former coach, whose recent
book "The Big Miss" has
kicked up a stir
"I'm not there watching
his shots, and he did some of
that when I had him. But it
seems to me he's doing it a
lot more now. Still, the no-
tion that he should just go
out and play, or have fun, or
somehow just play like he
used to, is nonsense. I hear
people say it all the time, in
things I read, or on TV and
it's just total nonsense.
"He's always been me-
chanical. He was always
thinking about his swing,
about his short game, about
one adjustment or another he
was convinced would make a
difference. With a lot of tour-
ing pros, it's a defensive
mechanism. They can't let too
many doubts creep in. But
there's a big difference be-
tween a textbook swing and
one you can take to the golf
'And for some reason, he
can't make that transfer ...
The strange thing is that be-
fore this tournament, he was
on a run of pretty good re-
sults. He's still going to win a
lot of tournaments," Haney
said finally, "but probably not
as many as he used to."
Woods is at 3 over, 12 shots
off the lead, farther behind
than he's ever been at the
Masters. Late into the night
Friday, using a spotlight pro-

Paul Carey broke a tie
with a power-play goal mid-
way through the first period,
redirecting Brian Du-
moulin's blast from left
point to make it 2-1.
Johnny Gaudreau also
scored for Boston College.
Garrett Thompson scored
for Ferris State.
Whitney opened the scor-
ing at 3:18 of the first period,
stealing a pass and beating
lunging goalie Taylor Nel-
son. Thompson tied it at
5:19, and Carey put the Ea-
gles in front at 10:33.
Gaudreau weaved
through the Ferris State de-
fense to make it 3-1 with 3:02
left in the game, and Whit-
ney added an empty-net
goal with 1:03 to go.

who shot 68 and summed up
what awaits on Sunday
"It's not the player that
plays the most consistent
that wins at the Masters.
The player who plays
probably some of the most
exciting golf wins at the
Masters," Harrington said.
"You only have to look at
the way Phil has won
some of his majors. You've
got to take on golf shots.
Fortune favors the brave
at times here."
And to think Mickelson al-
most lost this Masters on the
opening day
With a lost ball and a
triple bogey on the 10th
hole, he was 4-over par
through 12 holes on Thurs-
day and hitting the ball in
places even he had never
seen at Augusta. Only his
short game saved him that
day, and he escaped with
a 74.
He has been on the move
ever since, and Lefty was at
his best on Saturday
If there was one shot
that showed why he has an
imagination unlike others,
it came from behind the
green on the par-5 15th.
Moments earlier, Hanson
was in about the same spot
and played a conventional
bump-and-run up the
slope to a green that runs
quickly toward the hole.
Hanson went just over the
green, and had to make a
15-foot putt.
Mickelson took out his 64-
degree wedge he carries
that club for moments like
this and played a full flop
shot that landed softly and
trickled to 4 feet below the
cup for a birdie.

vided by the club, Woods
went to the practice range
and pounded shot after shot
into the darkness. His coach,
Sean Foley, crouched along-
side and tried to track the
flight of the ball.
Despite the extra work,
less than 24 hours later,
Woods found himself another
four strokes in arrears. Asked
whether another practice
session was on his schedule,
Woods replied, "I'm a little
tired. Last night took a little
bit out of me and certainly (so
did) trying to put everything I
possibly had into this round
to get it back I'm going to go
back and go lift, work out and
get ready for tomorrow."
Someone asked Woods
what he would need Sunday
to get back into the tourna-
ment, recalling that just a few
weeks ago, when the arrow
on his game was pointing up,
he shot a 62 in the final round
of the Honda Classic to finish
in a tie for second.
"That would be nice,"
Woods replied, almost wist-
fully "I don't know. I don't
know what the score is going
to be because it's going to be
dependent, obviously on
what these guys do today If
somebody shoots 4 or 5 under
par and they're up there in
the lead, it's going to be tough
to go get 'em. But anything
can happen. That's the thing.
"You can be 4, 5, 6 back
going into the back nine and
still win the golf tourna-
ment. Anything," he said,
"can happen."
With that, Woods turned
and headed for the parking
lot, where he climbed behind
the wheel of a black Mer-

cedes SUV and headed for
the exit If he really believed
he could still conjure up
some of the old Masters
magic, the mournful look on
his face said otherwise, call-
ing to mind a line from an old
blues standard that goes, "I
might be better, but I'll never
be well."

By winning their final two
games, the Flames reached the
90-point mark for the eighth

said. "Right now, I'm really happy
that both of them played. It was
tough to go for them because at any
level I don't care if it's high

put so much on those young guys on
a football team coming in here as
true freshmen is tough. We cer-
tainly benefitted from it, though."

make progress for the Gators to
contend in the always-tough South-
eastern Conference in five months.

getting receivers together over the

chemistry Florida has lacked the
last two seasons.

cator to see who takes a leg up and
see who's going to get our football
out there and do team drills,"
Muschamp said. "They've got to
take control of our football team....
I feel comfortable our offense will,

step as far as that's concerned."

David Satterfield.

"I'm a warrior for light,"
Kinkade, a self-described devout
Christian, told the San Jose Mer-
curyNews in 2002, a reference to
the medieval practice of using
light to symbolize the divine. "With
whatever talent and resources I
have, I'm trying to bring light to
penetrate the darkness many peo-
ple feel."
Before Kinkade's Media Arts
Group went private in the middle
of the past decade, the company
took in $32 million per quarter
from 4,500 dealers across the coun-

Religion is politics

Some ask: Is church still

needed in America?
During Holy Week for Christians and
on this Easter Sunday, you can't help
but wonder whether the church as
an institution has any future at all. If a
swelling number of voices from across the
theological spectrum is to be believed,
Jesus is terrific, but
the church is hope-
lessly bad.
This is hardly a new
idea, but the latest
version began draw-
ing attention in Janu-
ary when a YouTube
video went viral. It
was a rap/poem by an
earnest 22-year-old
Cary McMullen evangelical, Jefferson
FLORIDA Bethke, titled, "Why I
Hate Religion But
VOICES Love Jesus." Bethke
says, "I love the
church, I love the Bible, and yes, I believe
in sin. But if Jesus came to your church,
would they actually let him in?"
The video got more than 16 million hits
and prompted a lot of discussion. One of
Bethke's points was that the church in
America has become too complacent and
too identified with politics.
The same point is made by political com-
mentator Andrew Sullivan in this past
week's Newsweek cover story: "Christianity
in Crisis: Why we should ignore politics,
priests and get-rich evangelists and just fol-
low him." Him being Jesus, of course.
Sullivan, a Catholic who has leveled fre-
quent criticisms at the Catholic Church,
writes that its current infatuation with poli-
tics has produced hypocrisy and corruption,
something Jesus would reject.
"If we return to what Jesus actually asked
us to do and to be rather than the un-
knowable intricacies of what we believe he
was he actually emerges more powerfully
and more purely," Sullivan writes.
He cites figures as diverse as Thomas Jef-
ferson and St. Francis of Assisi as people
who have tried to live this "love Jesus, hate
the church" approach, but these are not ex-
actly guys the average Christian is going to
If anyone has reason to dislike how the
church can act, it's me. I've been dismissed
twice from church positions, once as a pas-
tor But I still show up at my congregation
each Sunday for the simple reason that to be
practiced rightly, faith demands community.
This tenet flies in the face of our individu-
alistic society, which believes that self-re-
liance is a virtue in all things. Not so in
religion. The idealistic notion of "just fol-
lowing Jesus" sounds great until you try it.
It's difficult even with others helping. It's
impossible alone.
In a Huffington Post essay titled "Four
Reasons I Came Back to Church," author
Christian Piatt says he found what Sullivan
dreams of, "a community that defied stereo-
types" about Christianity.
"Fortunately, God's grace is more persist-
ent and patient than the time it took for me
to get over my hurt feelings and biases
against organized religion," he writes.

Special to the Chronicle
To be practiced rightly, faith demands community. This tenet flies in the face of our individu-
alistic society, which believes that self-reliance is a virtue in all things. Not so in religion.

Is there hypocrisy and corruption in the
institutional church? Undoubtedly Is the
church too much involved in partisan poli-
tics? Absolutely
Is the church in whatever size, shape
or form still needed? Yes.
To paraphrase Mitt Romney, churches are
people, and in their churches people come
together to worship, study, pray and help

others inside and outside the walls.
It's imperfect And it's indispensable. My
question to Andrew Sullivan is, if you want
to follow Jesus, where else would you go on

siders raising taxes or fees,
we as citizens expect those
discussions to occur in the Sun-
shine. We also expect an opportu-
nity to be heard and to hear what
our elected officials are saying. And
we expect safeguards to
monitor what they are
So why should univer-
sity students not enjoy
the same participation
and accountability in re-
gards to student activity"'
and service fees? You
might think, why should

money Consider this: at FLOI
USF Polytechnic in
Lakeland, a branch cam- VOl(
pus of roughly 1,400 stu-
dents, those fees amount to more
than half a million dollars a year
The story behind fee hikes began
during the legislative session of
2010, when lawmakers passed a bill
allowing state universities to in-
crease activity and service fees,
health fees and athletic fees by 15
percent, or up to the statewide uni-
versity average, whichever was
In Lakeland, then-Regional
Chancellor Marshall Goodman ap-
pointed a "Fee Committee" of three
administrative members and three
students to review the opportunity.
The committee met on May 7, with-
out notice to the student Senate or
the students themselves, and with-


out an agenda.
What's interesting about the date,
besides the fact that most students
had left for the summer break, was
that the bill was not signed into law
until May 28, and did not take effect
until July 1.
Why the rush? Why
not involve students?
How did Marshall Good-
man get a jump start on
S this legislation? Was it
his idea? Was this a way

student activity fees in-
stead of limited PECO
funds? Is this happening

CES the answers, the facts
ES paint a suspicious pic-
ture. Spring classes
ended April 30, with final exams
ending May 7, which means virtu-
ally no students remained on cam-
pus when the committee voted to
raise their fees.
A skimpy half-page of minutes
from the meeting shows no time or
location, or even who took the min-
utes. It does list the three staff
members and the three students
who receive a small salary for their
work in student government. The
three students also have been given
paid positions in student affairs.
At the time, USF Poly's fee was
$8.65 per credit hour, but quickly
and quietly, these six individuals
raised the rate to the maximum al-
lowable $28.83 per credit hour, a

233 percent increase.
Goodman's administration says
students agreed the increase
should largely pay to construct a
new Wellness Center on the fledg-
ling campus. But never did the fee
increase, or the plan to spend the
money on construction, go to the
student Senate.
Now with USF Poly possibly be-
coming a separate university called
Florida Polytech, the bill before the
governor also would transfer the
fees paid by USF students. In total,
$1.7 million has been taken from
USF students for the Polytech
building. Worse, USF students in
Lakeland are expected to continue
paying the inflated fees from which
they will never benefit.
Goodman's administration never
gave the students a straight answer
Now, the interim regional chancel-
lor and USF's main campus are con-
ducting an internal audit. The
students, meanwhile, have dis-
cussed the matter with legal counsel.
Before the situation gets murkier,
these dollars should revert back to
USF students for a use that is de-

termined in open meetings by
elected student senators.

ica, where we believe in a repre-
sentative form of government. What
kind of message are we sending our
future leaders?

For the most part, VA em-
ployees, of whom many are vet-

dedicated to carrying out its
noble mission of fulfilling Pres-

ever, in exercising their
responsibility they are often
hindered by organizational
lethargy, poor inter-departmen-
tal communications, evidence-
based eligibility requirements,
indurate procedures and in-
sensitive decision-making.
Given these organizational
hurdles, the delivery of VA
benefits and services is viewed
by many veterans as being a
bureaucratic maze that is in-
timidating and uncaring. This
is especially the case for those
veterans applying for or re-
ceiving disability compensa-
tion, which is a financial
lifeline for many of them.
A case in point is the recent
situation of disabled Vietnam
War Army veteran Richard
Miller of Inverness. The Social
Security Administration noti-
fied the VA that he had died
last November With the notifi-
cation either transmitted or re-
ceived incorrectly, Miller's

Romney veep pick? A heavy hitter

Barack Obama's intellectual
sociopathy his often
breezy and sometimes
loutish indifference to truth -
should no longer startle. It
should, however, influence Mitt
Romney's choice of a running
In his 2010 State of
the Union address,
Obama flagrantly mis-
represented the
Supreme Court's Citi- .,S-
zens United decision,
which did not "open /
the floodgates" for for- r-
eign corporations "to
spend without limit in
our elections" (the law Georg
prohibiting foreign
money was untouched OTI
by Citizens United) VOI
and did not reverse "a
century of law." Although Obama
is not nearly as well educated as
many thought, and he thinks, he
surely knows he was absurd
when he said last Monday, re-
garding Obamacare, that it would
be "unprecedented" for the
Supreme Court to overturn a
"passed law."
More important, and particu-
larly pertinent to Romney's
choice, was Obama's Tuesday
speech comprehensively misrep-
resenting Rep. Paul Ryan's
budget. (For Ryan's refutation of
Obama, go to http://ow.ly/a6hPz.)
Remarkably, the 42-year-old con-
gressman is today's agenda-set-
ting Republican. Admirably,
Romney has embraced Ryan's
approach to altering the ruinous
trajectory of the entitlement state
and forestalling what that trajec-
tory presages, a "government-
centered society" (Romney's
phrase in his fine Milwaukee
speech Tuesday night).
Obama's defense of reac-
tionary liberalism whatever is
must ever be, only increased is
not weighed down by the ballast
of scruples. His defense will be
his campaign because he cannot
forever distract the nation and


mesmerize the media with such
horrors as a 30-year-old law stu-
dent being unable to make some-
one else pay for her
contraception. So Romney's run-
ning mate should have intellec-
tual firepower, born of immersion
in policy complexities,
sufficient to refute
Obama's meretricious
claims and derelic-
tions of duty. Here are
two excellent choices:
Ryan already is at
the center of the cam-
paign, and is the
world's foremost ex-
pert on the Ryan-Rom-
e Will ney plan. No one is
more marinated in the
IER facts to which Obama
DES is averse. Ryan has not
yet honed his rhetori-
cal skills for communicating com-
plexities to laypersons, but he is a
quick study One drawback is that
he is invaluable as chairman of
the Budget Committee and in
2015 might become chairman of
Ways and Means.
Louisiana's Gov Bobby Jindal,
40, was a 20-year-old congres-
sional staffer when he authored a
substantial report on reforming
Medicare financing. At 24, he be-
came head of Louisiana's De-
partment of Health and
Hospitals, with 12,000 employees
and 40 percent of the state
budget. Back in Washington at 26,
he was executive director of the
National Bipartisan Commission
on the Future of Medicare. In
1999, he became president of
Louisiana's state university sys-
tem, which has 80,000 students. In
2001, he served as an assistant
secretary of health and human
services. He became governor
after three years in Congress.
Faux realists will belabor Rom-
ney with unhistorical cleverness,
urging him to choose a running
mate who supposedly will sway
this or that demographic cohort
or carry a particular state. But
are, for example, Hispanics na-

tionwide such a homogeneous co-
hort that, say, those who came to
Colorado from Mexico will iden-
tify with a son of Cuban immi-
grants to Florida (Sen. Marco
Rubio)? Do these realists know
that according to exit polls,
Nevada's Hispanic Gov. Brian
Sandoval, a Republican, won
only about a third of the Hispanic
vote in 2010?
Furthermore, in the 16 elec-
tions since World War II, 10 pres-
idential candidates have failed to
carry the home state of their vice
presidential running mates. Gov
Earl Warren could not carry Cal-
ifornia for Tom Dewey in 1948;
Sen. Estes Kefauver could not
carry Tennessee for Adlai
Stevenson in 1956; former Sen.
Henry Cabot Lodge could not
carry Massachusetts for Richard
Nixon in 1960; Rep. Bill Miller
could not carry New York for
Barry Goldwater in 1964; Gov.
Spiro Agnew could not carry
Maryland for Nixon in 1968; Sar-
gent Shriver could not carry
Maryland for George McGovern
in 1972; Rep. Geraldine Ferraro
could not carry New York (or
women, or even her congres-
sional district) for Walter Mon-
dale in 1984; Sen. Lloyd Bentsen
could not carry Texas for Michael
Dukakis in 1988; Jack Kemp
could not carry New York for Bob
Dole in 1996; Sen. John Edwards
could not carry North Carolina
for John Kerry in 2004.
For the next decade, American
politics will turn on this truth:
Slowing the growth of the entitle-
ment state is absolutely neces-
sary and intensely unpopular. In
this situation, which is ripe for a
demagogue such as Huey Long
from Chicago's Hyde Park, Rom-
ney's choice of running mate
should promise something Wash-
ington now lacks adult

LETTER to the Editor

Misleading editorial
The recent Sunday, April 1, ed-
itorial opinion piece was contra-
dictory to the March 3, 2012,
The March 3 article stated,
"Webb had a verygood recom-
mendation during the commis-

want to make a decision against
Sen. Dean unless Sen. Dean had
the chance to come back to In-
verness to explain his position.
In this case we believe Commis-
sion Chairman Webb is right on
Now however, the most recent
opinion on Sunday, April 1,
states, "Only commission Chair-
man Webb, who is officially a
candidate for sheriff himself,
voted to support Dean."

will not make our children any
more or less safe. Anyone who

There was a column in the March 25
Chronicle by Susan Clary under the header
"Too many deaths in the name of self-de-
fense" in which she attempts to discredit
the "stand your ground" law by using statis-
tics that clearly have nothing to do with this
law. She uses instances that should have
been prosecuted under different statutes
but claims they show this is a bad law,
clearly a case of false reasoning. One might
wonder how Ms. Clary would react if an
armed rapist attacked her or how she would
feel if a friend was murdered because they
could not protect themselves if this law
were repealed.
Many years ago I had an armed burglar
break into my home at midnight I could ei-
ther hope that the authorities would try to
arrest and convict him of my murder and
hope that somehow my little boy, who I was
raising as a single dad, would be taken care
of... or I could protect myself and my son. I
shot him before he could shoot me.
The situation with Trayvon Martin and
George Zimmerman is a terrible tragedy No
matter the cause, a young man is dead and a
family is suffering unimaginable grief and I
fully understand that horrible feeling. My
son was killed when he was 20 and the pain
never goes away However, to use this
tragedy as an indictment of a good law is un-
conscionable, although it is the typical knee-
jerk reaction of liberals. If Zimmerman
broke any laws, prosecute him but do not
prosecute a good law.
Ms. Clary's views are the understandable
gun-grab, forget-the-Second Amendment,
disarm-Americans view of liberals, but as an
American, she is entitled to these views.
However, I find it shameful that the Chroni-
cle would ink her column without a counter-
point column. Gerry, Charlie, a little
fairness would be appreciated.

Law senseless
Much has been said, written and shouted
about the racial aspects of the Sanford
shooting. George Zimmerman, the deranged
self-appointed head of an unregistered
Neighborhood Watch, an obvious cop
wannabee, stalked, confronted and shot
Trayvon Martin who was walking home
from a convenience store with a non-alco-
holic drink and a snack.
One would think that if there were any
value to the law it would be so that someone
stalked and confronted by a total stranger
with no authority whatever would be able to
shoot his assailant But unlike some of my
fellow NRA members, I'm not sure that hav-
ing every lunatic packing heat at all times is
the best way to keep the peace.
I'm not disappointed that the racial ele-
ment has been invoked to stir up opposition
to the law and especially its interpretation
by police departments. The more uproar,

the better But while race undoubtedly had
much to do with Martin Zimmerman's selec-
tion of Trayvon Martin for suspicion, the
problem with Stand Your Ground is not pri-
marily one of race.
Not long ago Trevor Dooley shot and
killed his neighbor in an argument rising
out of skateboarding in a residential court
At the time I believe it was reported that
Trevor Dooley is black, and his neighbor
white. The problem was not that the shooter
was black and the victim white. Trevor Doo-
ley may not hate white people any more
than he hates anyone else.
The problem is that a man armed himself
on the way to stage a hissy fit over trivia.
And in the more recent case, George Zim-
merman appointed himself to a police role
for which he was woefully unqualified and
used it as an excuse to provoke an armed
confrontation with a stranger who was
minding his own business.
I know it is difficult if not impossible to
legislate common sense. But Florida's
"Stand Your Ground" law doesn't even come

working with the young people and striving
to improve his people skills.
Be assured, I have the highest respect for
our law enforcement officers and often take
the time to stop and thank them for their
service, just as I do with military men and
women, weather on duty or veterans.
When the H.S.&M.V Inspector came
down from Tallahassee and took my sworn,
recorded statement, the inspector ask me
what results did I wish to see as the result of
my reporting Trooper Cloud. I stated I just
hoped Trooper Cloud would be given addi-

conducted in the middle of Homosassa

reflected on the image of our communities,
as do the speed traps along U.S. 301 be-

traffic light at the intersection of Ozello

such checks.

sense? Stabbing incident among his
deputies, drunkeness, firearm shootout
with an unarmed dog.
I felt it behooved me to consider other
possibilities and I did so. I found that
among the three Republican candidates,
one appeared to be the best. One who
would put back the trust in our sheriff's
The one is Steven Burch. With his 28
years in law enforcement, proven record
to head a major department as CEO,
and his 8-point plan, I support him.
On Steve's website (burch4sheriff.com)
and in his presentation of which I have
attended two, I liked his 8-point plan. It
was clear, concise and would improve
upon what we currently have and even
establish some new things. As follows:
Create a Citizens Budget Review
Eliminate waste, reducing opera-
tional and management costs to include
reducing his own salary as is permitted

by law.
Accountability to citizens and to em-
ployees by not accepting campaign con-
tributions from employees, establishing a
Citizen's Disciplinary Review Board that
also creates a fair and open employee
disciplinary process designed to elimi-
nate bias.
Provide effective law enforcement
Reduce DUI and fatal crashes by de-
veloping effective prevention and en-
forcement methods.
Coordinate efforts with surrounding
counties to target drug trafficking
and apply savings and efficiencies to in-
crease law enforcement presence in drug
areas such as schools.
Increase patrol time within commu-
nities, use social networking sites to pro-
vide information, work with the
community to address homelessness
in Citrus County
Improve marine safety increase
deputies and volunteers patrolling
county waterways.
I believe that we, in Citrus County, de-
serve the best law enforcement we can
get. I believe a Steven Burch administra-
tion will be just that.
Please consider Steven Burch and
then please, vote for Steven Burch.

Seven points
1. Why does Obama need 30-plus
czars? How much are they paid?
2. Why does the new media fail to re-
port his back-door dealings?
3. In his last year, he is trying to act like
he cares for our country and our troops.
4. Both parties are to blame for the
shape our country is in.
5. We are a laughing stock to other
countries. We give them money that
could be used to help our own.
6. It is sad there has not been a good
president in many years.
7. Non-voters need to wake up. Our
country is in bad shape because of cor-
rupt politicians in both parties, from top
to bottom.

More college hockey
I am writing to say that in my opinion
the Chronicle should print more articles
about college hockey It is March and I un-
derstand that college basketball is in full
swing, yes, March Madness. But we don't
hear about the Hockey East tournament,
and now the Frozen Four is about to start,
but we never hear about it. Maybe it's just
because I'm from New England, but I
think it would be wicked good to see some
college hockey in the sports section.

A friend disappoints me
A star in Citrus County politics has re-
turned. To the disappointment of many,
the luster of that star has faded.
Serving as a representative of Citrus
County (as well as the State of Florida) she
served well enough to also become a sena-
tor from Citrus and surrounding counties.
Her service was exemplary enough to get
her an appointment to the Public Service
Commission. While there, she attempted
to take politics out of the commission and
make it truly a public service organization.
With a change in leadership in Talla-
hassee, lobbyists again gained control of
the legislature; hence the Public Service
Commission. This was a loss for the citi-
zens of Florida. However, Nancy's tem-
perament then apparently took control of
her judgment and she suddenly decided

she wanted to become a Democrat, possi-
bly to win a grudge match.
Frustrated when she found out she had
used the wrong tactic for that move, she
has decided to try to regain her popular-
ity in Citrus by challenging our current
state representative. This appears to be a
desire to again become an elected offi-
cial just to hold an elective office. An-
other prominent and fairly popular
elected official tried that approach two
years ago. It really is not a popular move.
I, for one, wish Nancy had stuck to her
principles and continued to fight for what
is right rather than just to win an election.
When it is time to elect a state repre-
sentative for the Citrus County area this
year, all voters should take time to be-
come well informed. Make your choice
based on motivation as well as compe-
tency of the candidates we have to
choose from. Remember, you will be vot-
ing based on today, not ten years ago.
Many who know Nancy really admired
her effort to "do the right thing" while
dealing with others who so often were
willing to compromise. Sadly, in politics,
too often one has the choice of being
right or popular.

Good in all people
I have been a Christian all my life. I be-
lieve in the Bible and I believe in the
U.S. Constitution denoting the separation
of Church and State. There have been too
many transgressions in the name of the
Lord, but there has also been much good
done according to Matthew 25:31-46.
I know the Gospel. Where does God
talk about capitalism, socialism or com-
munism? He commands us to take care
of one another
God knows His own. He knows the
sheep from the goats. According to Jesus'
parable, the sheep will be rewarded for
their righteousness, but the goats will be
cursed to eternal punishment for refus-
ing to see Christ in all people.
Who truly need help? I believe it is not
up to man to question a person's needs.
Only God knows. I prefer to see Christ in
all people, unlike many who condemn so-
cial justice. They prefer to see economic
and political philosophy instead of the
Word of the Lord.

Letters to the EDITOR


SUNDAY, APRIL 8, 2012 C3

C4 SUNDAY, APRIL 8, 2012

No control
This is no April Fools. Two
articles in the paper (April
2), the Sound Off, "Oil
equals power," and letters
to the editor, "Rising gas
prices": How can people
who can speak and write so
eloquently be so wrong?
Obama has absolutely noth-
ing to do with the price of
oil. Oil is controlled through
the commodity markets and
we have nothing to do with
it. So come on, people, get
your information straight.
You write a good letter, but
it's wrong, totally wrong.

Not to blame
The letter in today's paper
(April 2) could not have
been more wrong about the
history of gas prices. In July
2008, the last year George
Bush was in office, gas
spiked at $4.17 a gallon.
That's quite a bit more than
the author's claim of under
$1.80 a gallon. As we
learned from George Bush,
the president has no control
over the price of gas, which
is set by the world com-
modities market and based
on many factors, including
production, supply and de-
mand. As for President
Obama hoping gas reaches
the European price of $9 to
$10 per gallon, that is also
false. His energy secretary
did make such a comment,
but President Obama dis-
avowed it. George Bush was
the worst president since
Millard Fillmore, but we
can't blame him for oil

prices. President Obama
may not prove to be much
better, but again, he's not to
blame for oil prices.

Middle East control
(To those) who say that
the president is making the
gas prices higher so he can
destroy this country: Don't
they know that the Middle
East, Europe and Asia con-
trol the price of oil, not the
United States? We are very,
very small in production of
oil. We could drill, drill, drill
in every place we can drill
and still not catch up to
those people.
Oil subsides
I hear all this negative
talk about the president and
the Democrats, but I see in
the paper the Republicans
all voted to keep the oil sub-
sidies going for the oil com-
panies even though we're
paying almost $4 a gallon.
Thank you, Republicans.

Tax breaks
In this morning's Chroni-
cle (April 2), some readers
were blaming President
Obama for the high price of
gasoline. In the same edi-
tion of the Chronicle, it was
reported Sen. Marco Rubio
voted against ending $24
billion in tax breaks for Big
Oil. Thanks, Marco.
Companies raise prices
Will someone please
straighten out these people
who are blaming Obama for
the gasoline prices rising?
They should look into the
fact that the combines that

are run in the Middle East
and in Europe are the ones
who do all the
pushing of the
prices up, up and
up, as long as they
feel like doing it.
We have no power
over that whatso-
ever because we
only have maybe
15 or 18 percent
of the oil in this CAL.
world. The oil is 56 -i
from other coun- Uu
tries and they're
the people (who) are mak-
ing it high, not us. So leave
Obama alone. He's doing
the best he can.
Seller's market
If the Republicans want to
continuously and erro-
neously blame the president
for high gas prices, don't
they also have to give him
credit for the increase in U.S.
drilling and the decrease in
importing oil from foreign
countries? Under a free en-
terprise system, companies
are free to charge whatever
the market will bear. This is
a system Republicans have
continuously accused the
president of wanting to de-
stroy. Now, however, as gas
prices climb, Republicans
accuse the president of
doing nothing to stop it.
Sorry, guys, you can't have it
both ways. Oil prices are ris-
ing because the global mar-
ket requires more. China and
Russia are just a few exam-
ples of a growing middle-



and upper-class society
where using more oil than
ever has become
|ND the norm. It's a
JND seller's market,
W1 plain and simple.

Gas guzzler
It's titled "Com-
mon sense." I won-
der the thoughts of
someone who filled
up their apparent
579 gas guzzler with 25
gallons of gas at
$95. I only hope the
vehicle was on fumes. My
SUV holds only 14.5 gallons.
How fortunate you must be
to be able to drive such a
large gas guzzler. Also, presi-
dents don't set the price of
oil. It's sold on the world
market, and, like him or not,
calling our president a bum
is out of line. How fortunate
for you to live in this country.
Check the numbers
A letter today, April 2,
said $3.80 gas is cause to
call the president a socialist
bum. To be fair, though,
let's add balance through
another set of numbers.
Add to that 13,000 as for
the Dow Jones and GDP
growth of 3 percent. Now
what do you call a president
with $4.12 gasoline price,
11,000 Dow and 135 GDP
growth? Must be a socialist
something, right? Next
question: How about six
months later with gas at
$1.80, GDP -8.9 percent
and Dow at 8,000. What do

Supply and demand
It amazes me nobody re-
members gas prices were
low when Bush left office
because the economy was
in freefall. Supply and de-
mand, remember? Also, gas
prices were over $4 a gallon
during his presidency. Peo-
ple, you are watching way
too much Fox News.

Gasoline facts
I'd like to know where
Harry Cooper was buying his
gas for $1.80 a gallon, be-
cause in 2008, I was paying
$3.95 for it. Get your facts
straight. And by the way, it's
Mr. President, not Barack,
not Obama. The position of
Commander in Chief de-
serves respect, regardless of
who you voted for.
Market control
When Albert Einstein got
to heaven, he was told that
he would be rooming with
four other men, so intro-
duces himself. "Glad to meet
you," says the first, "By the
way, my IQ is 180." "Good,"
Einstein says, "we'll be able
to discuss quantum
physics." The second says,
"I have an IQ of 159."
"Splendid, we can talk about
the latest mathematical the-
ories." The third man says,
"As for me, my IQ is 132."
"Delighted," Einstein says,
"we can debate the current
state of the arts." And the
fourth man says, "I'm hon-
ored to meet you, but my IQ

"That's all right. So tell me,
where do you think gas
prices are headed?" Anybody
who is so ignorant of the
way that the market works
as to believe that a president
has any influence over gas
prices, belongs in that intel-
lectual group. By the way,
the highest price you have
paid for gas was during the
Republican administration.

Out of control
Just watched ABC and
NBC morning shows. Katie
Couric wins again. Sarah
Palin played politics all the
way and blamed Barack
Obama for our gas prices
and the effect on the econ-
omy. The president of the
United States, whether he
be Barack Obama, George
Bush or Bill Clinton, cannot
control gas prices any more
than he can control the
orbit of the moon. Anybody
who believes he can, has
not researched it and is the
victim of political rhetoric.

Tips to consider before you spend this year's tax refund

Special to the Chronicle
Do you spend weeks each spring
eagerly anticipating your income
tax refund? When the money fi-
nally comes in, is it gone tomorrow?
You're not alone. Many consumers
view tax refunds as unplanned
bonuses, but it makes more sense to
plan for that new chunk of change
so it doesn't go to waste.
"Making smart decisions with
your money is a great way to re-
ward yourself for all the hard
work you did to earn it," said
Karen Nalven, president of BBB
Serving West Florida. "You'll be
glad you saved some of your tax
refund money for a rainy day
when it can be put to better use."
Whether or not you are in need
of debt relief, a tax refund pro-
vides the opportunity to improve
your financial situation. BBB and
Clear Point Credit Counseling So-
lutions recommend the following
tips to tax refund recipients:
Pay down your debt. Refund

checks usually arrive when many
consumers are still struggling with
holiday bills. Use your refund for
some much needed debt relief:
pay off your credit card. If you
have an outstanding balance on
more than one credit card, you
can either try to pay off the lowest
balance card first (good for moti-
vation) or direct the funds toward
the card carrying the highest in-
terest rate (wiser from financial
perspective). Or, apply your re-
fund toward other debts, like a car
loan or a home equity loan.
Consider your financial goals.
Are you trying to save for a down
payment on a house or car? Do you
hope to contribute to your child's
college tuition one day? Consider
applying your tax refund toward
these goals. If you don't yet have a
set of short-term and long-term fi-
nancial goals, put one together.
You'll be more conscientious
about how you spend your tax re-
fund, or any other extra money
that comes your way

Save it for a rainy day. Why
not give yourself an even bigger
return on your tax refund by put-
ting the money into a savings ac-
count-or an emergency savings
account, CD or retirement fund?
Your tax refund will continue to
grow if you put it into savings or
invest the money Plus, it's always
helpful to have a savings account
to draw from when a major car re-
pair bill, medical emergency or
other unexpected expense comes
along. That way, you don't have to
borrow money and add to your
Keep things in perspective.
Working your way out of debt can
seem like a daunting task Perhaps
you assume that a small tax refund
check won't make enough of a dent
in your debt. Think again. Every
little bit helps. Paying down debt
takes time, but steadily increasing
your monthly payments does have
an impact. Just stay focused on the
end goal. It may take years to pay
off your debt, but your ultimate re-

Business DIGEST

ward being debt-free will be
well worth the effort
If debt is a continuing prob-
lem, consider a credit counselor.
Certified consumer credit coun-
seling agencies can assist people
who are facing financial chal-
lenges and are looking for debt re-
lief. BBB has information on more
than 2,000 Credit & Debt Counsel-
ing firms, including hundreds of
Accredited Businesses. BBB Busi-
ness Reviews are available for
free at www.bbb.org/search.
Consider investing in your
home or in others. Even if your fi-
nances are in good shape, your re-
fund check provides the
opportunity to improve your life
or the lives of others. Use the
money to spruce up your home or
make it more energy-efficient. Im-
prove your career opportunities
by taking a class or training
course. Use your refund to teach
your older children how to handle
money Give them a portion of the
refund and help them budget for

school, clothing and entertain-
ment expenses and savings. Fi-
nally, you may want to donate your
tax refund to a charitable organi-
zation. You'll help improve the
lives of others, and your charita-
ble gift may reduce next year's tax
burden. Check out BBB Wise Giv-
ing Alliance at www.bbb.org/char-

Spring: A time for flowers, high gasoline prices

AP Energy Writer

NEW YORK-Ahh, spring. The
days get longer, flowers bloom,
and gasoline gets more expensive.
It's a galling time for drivers,
and it's more maddening than
usual this year. The average price
of gasoline could surpass $4 per
gallon nationwide as early as this
week. It's already $3.93 per gallon,
a record for this time of year.
Why the seasonal spike? It's the
time of year refineries reduce out-
put to repair equipment and start
making a cleaner, more expensive
blend of gasoline for summer.
Since 2000, pump prices have
risen every year between early
February and late May The an-
nual increase has boosted prices
by 27 percent on average, accord-
ing to the National Association of
Convenience Stores. This year,
prices have risen 14 percent, or 48
cents per gallon, since Feb. 1.
"There's always built-in in-
crease, and it's going to be accen-
tuated this year," said Tom Kloza,
chief oil analyst at Oil Price Infor-
mation Service.
Gasoline was expensive even
before the seasonal run-up. Strong
global demand, heightened ten-
sions with Iran and a smattering of
supply disruptions have kept
crude oil prices elevated for
months. The oil used to make most

workplace gray for women.
"While the Age Discrimi-
nation in Employment Act
of 1967 was created to pro-
tect employees 40 years of
age and older, some men
and women may still en-
counter ageism in the work-
place," said Stephanie
Martinez Kluga, a manager
for Insperity, a Houston-
based company that pro-
vides human resources
services to small and
medium-sized businesses.
"The long-standing per-
ception that men with gray
hair are experienced and
women with gray hair are
simply old may still be an
issue that affects employees
in workplaces across the
U.S.," she said.
Some of today's new gray
panthers also offer strong
words of caution about ex-
actly how well those anti-
discrimination laws work.
Anne Kreamer is gray and
proud, but she didn't un-
leash the color until she left
her day job to become self-
employed. She dedicates an
entire chapter of her 2007
book "Going Gray" to work-
place issues.
"We only fool ourselves
about how young we look
with our dyed hair," said the
Kreamer, a former Nick-
elodeon executive who
helped launch the satirical
magazine Spy before writ-
ing the book exploring her
journey to silver
When it comes to gray on
the job, Kreamer said, con-
text counts. The color might
be easier in academia over
high-tech, for instance, and
in Minneapolis over Los An-
geles. Job description and
your rung on the ladder
might also be in play: chief
financial officer versus a
lowlier, more creative and
therefore more gray-toler-
ant position like assistant
talent agent, for example.
Kreamer dubbed the
largely unspoken phenome-
non "hair-colorism."
In 1950, 7 percent of
women dyed their hair, she
said. Today, it's closer to 95
percent or more, depending
on geographic location. In

of the gasoline in the U.S.
has averaged $120 per bar-
rel this year.
This year's spring surge
is more extreme than usual
because three refineries
that serve the East Coast
were shut down last fall
and another one may be
closed in July That's
threatening supplies in one
of the country's most
densely populated regions,
and pushing prices higher
Demand for gasoline
tends to drop off in winter.
That makes it the perfect
time for refineries to get
ready for summer, when
the objective is to produce
as much fuel as possible.
The catch is that the refin-
ing industry's version of
spring cleaning causes sup- Prices

rise. To be specific:
U Refineries need major
maintenance once every four
years, on average. On a practical
level, that means one-fourth of the
nation's refining capacity is tem-
porarily shut down in the first
quarter of every year Because the
U.S. has half the number of re-
fineries it did in 1980, a delay in
getting one or two back up and
running has a greater impact than
in the past.

To comply with the Clean Air
Act and limit smog, refiners have
to make a special blend of gaso-
line that doesn't easily evaporate
in the warm summer air. The fuel
is 5 to 15 cents a gallon more ex-
pensive to make because of raw
material costs.
The nationwide fuel supply
can't be transformed overnight.
Between April 1, when refiners

must start making the sum-
mer blend, and June 1,
when retailers have to be
selling it, supplies become
uncertain, and prices at the
pump rise.
During this period when
refiners are doing mainte-
nance and making summer
gasoline, the odds of an un-
expected supply disruption
rise, analysts say
To protect themselves
against this possibility, en-
MO ergy traders buy wholesale
gasoline futures on finan-
cial exchanges. That

prices up. And higher

quickly translated to higher

Retailers can go back to selling
winter blends Sept. 15. While it's
not required, most do so because
it is less expensive. Gasoline
prices generally decline in the au-
tumn, along with gasoline

membership, but blogs like
Terri Holley's Going Gray
are proliferating, along with
pro-gray Facebook fan
pages and Twitter feeds.
"Society has boxed in

Seasonal price swings are not
unique to the energy business.
Flights to Europe are more ex-
pensive in summer, when travel
demand rises, and strawberries
and tomatoes get more costly in
winter because they must be
shipped from far-flung places. Yet
when it comes to gasoline and
spring price hikes, drivers don't
want to hear about supply and de-
mand or higher production costs.
Tony Kost of Leesburg, Fla., who
commutes 80 miles roundtrip a
day for work, says it's hard to buy
the industry's explanation for the
seasonal price spikes.
He has a simpler, if unproven,
theory: "Oil industry price fixing."
"The oil industry has inflated
the price of gasoline," says Kost,
who paid $3.91 a gallon the last
time he tanked up.
There are some consolations for
Kost and other drivers. Even
though it may not feel like it, gaso-
line prices do usually dip after
their spring peak. Last year, gaso-
line fell from $3.98 per gallon on
May 5 to $3.55 on July 1 and fin-
ished the year at $3.28.
Also, summer gasoline blends
improve fuel economy by 1 per-
cent to 2 percent That means driv-
ers will at least get to go a little bit
farther on that pricey tank of gas.

SBA connects small businesses with corporate supply chains

Special to the Chronicle

WASHINGTON A new private-public
collaboration will help small businesses
strengthen their revenue streams by gain-
ing access to more than $300 billion in com-
bined supply chain spending by a
consortium of 15 of America's largest cor-
porations, the U.S. Small Business Admin-
istration announced recently
Supplier Connection, created by the IBM
Foundation, is part of the Obama Adminis-
tration's American Supplier Initiative and
is designed to help bridge the gap between
small, nimble businesses looking for new
opportunities and large corporations look-
ing for innovative new ideas and diversity
in their supply chains.
"The American Supplier Initiative is part
of a comprehensive solution to grow small
businesses, create jobs and to ensure that
America has a strong, deep and diverse
supply chain," said SBA Administrator
Karen Mills. "While it is clear that becom-
ing a corporate supplier can lead to busi-
ness growth, breaking in can be a challenge
for small businesses. The Supplier Con-

nection will be one tool to help small busi-
nesses connect with corporate buyers.
Tools like this help to ensure that more
small businesses are part of commercial
supply chains, which adds additional rev-
enue streams. This is a proven formula for
job creation."
Mills today sent letters about Supplier
Connection, a new tool to help small busi-
nesses access private sector supply chains,
to more than 50,000 small businesses that
currently participate in small business fed-
eral procurement programs. Studies have
shown that small businesses that are part
of large corporations' supply chains expe-
rience increased revenues and employ-
ment. SBA is committed to helping small
businesses identify new tools and re-
sources to become part of these supply
Supplier Connection is a free, online por-
tal created by the IBM Foundation that al-
lows small businesses to send information
about their products and services to 15
large private sector companies. The 15
companies participating in Supplier Con-
nection are: AMD, AT&T, Bank of America,

Caterpillar, Citi Group, Dell, Facebook,
IBM, JP Morgan Chase, John Deere, Kel-
logg's, Office Depot, Pfizer, UPS and Wells
Fargo. Together, these 15 companies have a
combined purchasing power of $300 billion
and now they will have full access to the
profiles of small businesses that have reg-
istered for Supplier Connection.
The American Supplier Initiative is a
call-to-action to the private sector to invest
in their supply chains through small
The initiative aims to address four key
areas in which small business need help in
order to become successful suppliers in the
private sector: access to mentorship and
counseling services, increased market and
revenue opportunities, ready sources of
capital to fund their growth, and a highly
skilled workforce.
To date, several American Supplier Ini-
tiative announcements have already been

your opinion of debt settle-
ment companies? Can you
recommend any to me? -
Reader, via email
are tons of "debt settle-
ment" companies that ad-
vertise. What they have in
common is they try to nego-
tiate a lower payoff for peo-
ple with relatively large
debts. I know of none I
would personally endorse. I
have heard some compa-
nies handle this in a reason-
ably ethical manner; many
do not. Get references.
The one thing I can guide
you on is to be wary of com-
panies that want money up
front. While there might be
a good reason to pay some
money up front, this is one
thing that makes many peo-
ple who are in hock very

cousin, who had no real fam-
ily of his own and with whom
all in my family were very
close, died. We wound up
paying for his funeral. Now
we understand his estate is
about to be sold, and we
would like to be reimbursed.
How can we go about getting
our money back? Will we
need to have an attorney
present during the time of
the sale to recover our ex-
pense? --TR, Georgia
DEAR TR: I believe when
you say "the estate is about
to be sold," you mean his es-
tate is about to be settled.
Maybe a piece of property is
to be sold. Either way, an ex-
ecutor has to have been ap-
pointed to your cousin's
estate or an administrator
appointed by the Surrogates
Court to handle your
cousin's affairs. That is the
person you should contact
immediately to make a claim
against the estate. Where
your claim will be in terms of
other monies owed is an-
other matter You can cer-
tainly ask that person what
your cousin's assets are.
The need for an attorney
depends somewhat on the
cooperation you receive
from the person responsible
for handling the estate and,
of course, on whether there
are assets that can be at-
tached. If you think you are
getting the runaround or
untruthful answers, then by
all means, hire an attorney

I think you can increase the
possibility of success by making
yourself very knowledgeable about a
specialized area, such as antique
lunch boxes, old postcards or Disney
memorabilia (my favorite).

husband and I were di-
vorced five years ago. In the
divorce, he took the car and
said he would make the pay-
ments. Now, five years later, I
am getting phone calls look-
ing for payment Apparently,
they have been trying to get
the money from him and
have been unsuccessful, so
now they're coming after me.
I tried to talk to the loan
company, but it doesn't care;
it just wants the money now.
I barely make it now, and
why would I pay on a car I
don't even have? Is there
anything I can do? -
Reader, via email
fortunate, but I get letters
like this a lot. When you
enter into a divorce agree-
ment, it seems at the time
like everything is worked
out, but then months or years
later it comes back at you.
Unfortunately, you are on
the hook since your ex
has stopped payment. After
all these years, it's most
likely a debt collector in-

stead of the original loan
company through which you
bought the car. They may
say they won't settle, but it's
my belief they can and they
will. I'm reasonably confi-
dent this debt can be negoti-
ated down substantially
DEAR BRUCE: I am get-
ting ready for retirement
next year. It has been many
years coming. My paycheck
is automatically deposited
into my checking account
every month. I would like to
find a way to have some of
that money directly de-
posited into a savings ac-
count as well. How should I
go about that? My bank says
it won't automatically take
my specified amount out of
my checking account and
transfer it into a savings ac-
count. I would have to do
that, but I can't be bothered.
Do you have any suggestions
how this can be done? -
Michael, via email
money from your paycheck
is deposited directly into an
account, why can't you sim-

ply transfer it yourself? So
many things can be done on-
line today If you ask your
bank to link your accounts
(if it's the same bank), then
you can simply go to your
account and transfer the
funds with a few keystrokes
of the computer
If you are like me and are
not computer-literate or
prefer a paper trail for
everything, write a check
from your checking account
and deposit it into your sav-
ings account. How much
simpler can this be? It gives
you complete control, and it
seems to be worth the little
effort it would require.
I would not rely on any
bank to transfer funds for me
monthly Too many things
can happen. You might even
get complacent about check-
ing and assume it has been
done and it hasn't. Just do it
yourself and there will be no
question that the transfers
were made.
DEAR BRUCE: For years
I have spent a lot of time at
estate sales, auctions, etc.,
and have become quite good
at buying items of value and
then turning a profit with
them. I'm not only making
money at it, but I'm having
I'm seriously considering
making this a full-time job
and am considering using
some of my savings to help
supplement this. What do you
think of collectibles as invest-

ments? Do you think I'm
crazy, or should I continue
doing this? -Judy, via email
DEAR JUDY: It seems
that this has become quite
the side business, judging
from the popular antiques
show and others on TV
You are going into an area
where there is a great deal
of competition. Hundreds of
thousands of people eat,
sleep and live this stuff. If
you are going into this with
an eye for real profit, it
might be wise to consider
niche investing. In other
words, don't go out with the
idea that you are just going
to buy "stuff."
I think you can increase
the possibility of success by
making yourself very knowl-
edgeable about a special-
ized area, such as antique
lunch boxes, old postcards
or Disney memorabilia (my
favorite). A lot of people
may not realize the value of
these items, and there can
be a tremendous amount of
appreciation on some of
them. Good luck!

Attention Consumers!
Please make sure you
are using a licensed

service advertisers are
required by state law
to include their state
license number in all
advertisements. If you
don't see a license
number in the ad, you
should inquire about it
and be suspicious that
you may be contact-
ing an unlicensed
business. The Citrus
County Chronicle
wants to ensure that
our ads meet the re-
quirements of the law.
Beware of any service
advertiser that can not
provide proof that
they are licensed to do
business. For questions
about business

virgin coconut oil. It's good for fighting
acne or as an aftershave as well. It can
also be applied and used as a bug
If you ever need to remove gum
from hair, coconut oil can work to get
it out. It smells better and is less messy
than using peanut butter.
Homemade pancake mix: If you
make your own bulk pancake mix for
your pantry, use coconut oil. Another
reader, Karen from Kansas, shares:
"Coconut oil is a good choice over
shortening or vegetable oil if you are
storing baking mix recipes made with
all-purpose flour at room tempera-
ture, because it doesn't go rancid at
room temperature."
Older eggs peel more easily than
fresher eggs when they're hard-boiled.
You can plunge eggs in ice water di-
rectly after cooking and then roll them
on the counter to remove shells with
ease, too. The first reader tip shares
another way to make peeling hard-
boiled eggs easier:
Easy-to-peel egg: A friend who owns
and cooks at her own diner gave me
this tip: Start eggs in cold water with a
couple of heaping tablespoons of salt.
The salt apparently sucks the calcium
out of the shells and makes them eas-
ier to remove. Robin, Oregon

Primer on designing HVAC systems

Matching system

Special to the Chronicle

heating, ventilation, and air
conditioning (HVAC) system
provides heating and cooling to
a home or building. The backbone of
the facility, the HVAC is made up of
the outside unit, sometimes referred
to as the compressor or condenser,
the inside unit, referred to as the
evaporator or air handler, the duct
system, referred to as the supply, the
boots they connect the duct to the
vents and the grilles, the things
seen poking through the ceiling that
usually have the vanes giving direc-
tion to the warm or cool air coming
When purchasing a new HVAC sys-
tem, examine the seasonal energy ef-
ficiency rating (SEER) of the heat

W2U L .3 U U E

with building important consideration

pump. The SEER is to an HVAC unit
like miles per gallon are to an auto-
mobile. The rating gives you a statis-
tical number you can use for
comparison the higher the SEER,
the more efficient the cooling equip-
ment is.
The sensible heat ratio, or SHR, is
the number that statistically de-
scribes how much of the energy used
by the heat pump is for cooling, or the
sensible load, with the remaining en-
ergy used for removing humidity, or
the latent load.
Heat pumps should not be used in
cold climates, where there are more
heating days than cooling days. The
heat pump loses efficiency in tem-
peratures below 35 degrees. To pro-
vide heat, the heat pump must have
auxiliary heat strips in the air han-
dler for added occupant comfort. The

heating seasonal performance factor,
or HSPF, is similar to the SEER be-
cause the HSPF provides a number to
indicate the efficiency of the heating
side of the heat pump. The higher the
HSPF, the more efficient the unit is.
After a buyer decides how much
SEER they can afford, the HVAC con-
tractor sizes the HVAC units to the
square footage of the building with
computer software called Manual J.
Using information like the efficiency
of the windows and window treat-
ments, SEER ratings, lighting, insula-
tion, building orientation, cooking
equipment, and appliances like the
dishwasher, refrigerator, washer,
dryer, water heater, shade trees, and
duct system, the HVAC system size is
then determined in BTUs. Then the

Do-list for droughts

Protect yourplants during driest part of year

In Florida, April and May are typically
the driest months of the year. Rising
temperatures and infrequent rainfall
can be stressful on many plants. There are,
however, many Florida-friendly things you
can do to deal with drought in
your landscape.
DO use plants with high /W
drought-tolerance. Visit www I
FloridaYards.org to find the best .I
plants for this area or call 352-
527-5708 for a Florida-friendly
plant list Among turf grasses, C ->
bahiagrass remains unparal-
leled as having the highest
drought-tolerance. The Argen-
tine' variety has denser growth, Audre
darker color and produces fewer F'
seedheads (requiring less fre-
quent mowing) than the 'Pensacola' variety.
DO wait until the rainy season before
planting. Use Citrus County's "Call before
You Install" program for information on
watering restrictions for new plants; call
352-527-7669 or email WaterConserva
DO maintain a 2- to 3-inch layer of or-
ganic mulch, such as wood chips, bark,
leaves or pine needles. Mulch helps to re-


tain soil moisture, suppress weeds and
add nutrients to the soil as it breaks down.
DO apply compost generously Com-
post acts like a "sponge" in the soil, trap-
ping moisture, fertilizers and chemicals in
the root zone where plants can
use them. For new planting
areas, till 2 to 3 inches of com-
post into the top 6 inches of soil.
For established areas, includ-
ing lawns, apply a 1/8 to 1/2-inch
top dressing multiple times, al-
lowing time for it to work into
the soil between applications.
U DO reduce mowing and
pruning. Grass and plants that
y Durr are already experiencing
'N drought stress will be further
__ stressed when mowed or
pruned. When mowing is necessary, mow
at the highest setting and make sure the
blades are sharp. A clean cut will lose less
water than a ragged cut.
DO avoid fertilizing. Fertilizing will
increase the plant's water needs. Fertil-
izer will also promote tender, new growth,
which cannot withstand drought.

Froggy toy associated with popular 1950s children's show

Dear John: After my parents
both passed, I was cleaning
out the house and found my
old rubber toy doll. I was told long
ago that I
stepped on
him, he
squeaked, I
cried and
dad put him
up. I believe
it is "Frog-
gie," from the
old Andy
Devine show John Sikorski
He has a SKORSK'S
small, dry SIKORSKI
crack on his ATTIC
left foot, but
all in all, he is in good shape. I am
60 years old, so something from my
childhood that survived is special.
Molded on him is "Rempel Mfg.
Inc., Akron, O. USA, Pat. 1948, J. Ed.

Is it collectible, or what of its
value? C.S., Inverness

of our readers, myself included,
are having Remember When mo-
ments and recalling those magic

How to build a box

DIYskill comes in handy in many ways

Mother Earth News

Boxes form the heart of many types
of furniture, cabinets and shelves,
bins, storage crates, raised garden
beds, and even buildings and large
timber frames. After you've mastered
the basics of how to build a box, you'll
be ready to successfully tackle many
DIY projects, large and small.
Guaranteed Square
When you build a box, you must
make perfect 90-degree comers, and a
tape measure is the best tool to use.
The trick to knowing you have it right
has to do with geometry When oppo-
site sides of a box are equal in length,
and measurements taken across diag-
onally opposite comers are equal,
then the comers form 90-degree an-
gles, and are "square." You can bet
your life on it.
The Butt-Joined
Plywood Box
This is the basic design for building
planter boxes, storage boxes, kitchen
cabinets, benches and more. Four
pieces of wood create the sides of the
box, with a fifth piece forming the op-
tional back. All are constructed in the
same way

"Butt joint" is a woodworking term
that describes a 90-degree connection
between two pieces of wood, in which
the edge of one piece is joined, or
"butted," to the face of a neighboring
piece. When they involve plywood or
most other kinds of sheet materials,
joints completed with glue and finish-
ing nails are more than strong enough
for most situations.
Butt-joined boxes are most often
made with one-half- or three-quarter-
inch-thick sheet materials. Cut parts
to width with your table saw or track-
guided saw. If some of the edges of the
completed box will remain visible, you
may want to hide the edges for ap-
pearance's sake. Continue by trim-
ming opposite sides of the box to
identical lengths, and then bring the
corners together after spreading glue
on both corner surfaces.
You'll find 11/2- to 2-inch-long hand-
driven finishing nails or 18-gauge
power-driven brads work best to se-
cure glued and butt-joined corners for
three-quarter-inch-thick stock used
for large cabinets; 1- to 11/4-inch nails
or brads are best for the half-inch
thick materials typically used to make
drawers and smaller cabinets. Either
way, you'll find it much easier and less

DO look for signs of
drought stress before irrigating,
such as folding/curling leaves.
Irrigate lawns when 50 percent
or more are showing folded leaf
blades, bluish-gray color and
footprints remain in the lawn.
DO water deeply with 1/2
to 3/4 inch of water. This
amount of water will saturate
the top 8 to 12 inches of soil,
where the majority of plant
roots are. When plants are wa-
tered deeply, they develop a

three times per week. It might
only be one thing at a time, but
at a minimum that's 12 items
out of the house per month and
144 per year! Doing a whole
closet all at once can be over-
whelming, but getting rid of a
few things at a time shouldn't
be so bad. -Heather Indiana
Activity book for kids: I just
made a dry-erase activity book
for my kids out of a three-ring
binder with page protectors in-
side. Just print out whatever
word searches, games, puzzles,
activities, coloring pages, dot-
to-dots, mazes, etc. you want
and slip them into the protec-
tors. My kids love it! For older
kids, try inserts with graph

deep root system that is better
able to withstand drought.
DO comply with the once-
per-week watering restrictions
for established plants. Visit
for more information.
DO remove weeds, which
compete with desirable plants
for water and nutrients. Pull
weeds by hand when possible,
because herbicides are not as
effective when weeds are
drought-stressed and not ac-
tively growing.

Gardening in small spaces

Tight confines don't have to limit green thumbs

Mother Earth News
Whether your garden con-
sists of a window box in
the city or an acre in the
country, you can benefit from
applying these techniques of
small-space gardening.
Soil Is No Small Matter
All successful gardening en-
deavors, big or small, start with
fertile soil. If you have a large
plot, you can get away with hav-

ing less-fertile soil by planting
more and spacing out your
crops. In a small space, how-
ever, that approach simply
doesn't work.
No matter which type soil you
have, you can improve both your
soil's structure and fertility by
working compost into the top
layer each year Those with re-
ally limited space can take heart
in knowing there are effective
composting options suitable for
even the smallest of spaces.
Fertile soil that retains nutri-

ents and water is one of the
keys to success with "intensive
planting," which is a fancy way
of saying planting a lot in a little
area. America's intensive-grow-
ing tradition has two fathers:
John Jeavons and Mel

See Page E9
In square-foot gardening, you
create a grid and plant crops in
1-by-1-foot squares.
DAVID LIEBMAN/Mother Earth News

E8 SUNDAY, APRIL 8, 2012


Continued from Page E8

Instead of rows, Jeavons and
Bartholomew suggest planting in
tightly spaced geometric patterns
that will allow the crops to create a
"living mulch" of foliage as they ma-
ture. This living mulch performs two
of the main tasks that regular old
dead mulch does: keeping the soil
moist and suppressing weeds.
In order to create this effect, how-
ever, you need to know how much
space to give each plant. Mel
Bartholomew's brilliantly simple tac-
tic is to set a 1-by-1-foot grid onto a
garden space and plant crops into
the grid. Large crops such as broc-
coli, peppers and cabbage require a
whole square, whereas small ones
such as carrots and radishes can be
planted 16 to a square.
One thing to keep in mind about an
intensively planted, geometric layout
versus a row layout is that you won't
walk between your crops but rather
will reach into them. So, unless you
happen to have the arm span of an
orangutan, your beds shouldn't be
wider than 3 or 4 feet. The length de-
pends on the space you have and the
amount of food you want to grow. Mel
Bartholomew recommends building
wooden boxes for your beds, but you
can get the same benefits by forming
and planting into boxless, level
Go Vertical, Baby
One cool technique for increasing
your choices and your harvests in a
small-space garden is vertical grow-
ing, which some people refer to as
cubed-foot gardening. As you can
guess, it's about understanding and
fully exploiting the vertical space
plants can occupy
The first rule of vertical growing is
knowing the heights of plants and sit-
uating the tallest ones in the north-
ern part of your garden so as not to
shade out the pipsqueaks. A more ad-
vanced lesson is learning the vertical
space a crop is willing to occupy if
coaxed and supported. While sun-
flowers shoot skyward without any
cheerleading, crops such as toma-
toes, cucumbers and even melons are
willing to grow upward if trellised
and shown the way Understanding
these three dimensions of gardening
will allow you to harvest more from
each precious square foot of soil.
Don't Settle for a
Short Season
Another way to get more out of
your small space is so cool that it's

ice-cold: season extension. Putting
season extension to work will allow
you to start gardening before your
neighbors have even cracked their
seed catalogs and finish long after
they've stopped growing for the year.
If you're just starting a small-space
garden, work a season-extension op-
tion into your design. For example,
rather than building a typical raised-
bed box, you may be better off with a
sloping cold frame design. Other sea-
son-extension options for small-
space gardens include low tunnels
and cloches.
Success in Succession
After you have a season-extension
plan in place, you'll discover that
your growing season has increased
by several weeks, which is critical for
implementing the small-space gar-
dener's most important technique of
all: succession planting. Small-space
gardening is not just a voyage in
space, but also time. Just as you
should avoid unproductive gaps in
your planting layout, you should also
avoid holes in your planting calen-
dar Succession planting is about
turning unproductive spaces into
productive ones by removing a crop
that has stopped producing and re-
placing it with a new one.
Here the challenge isn't simply un-
derstanding how tall or wide a crop
grows, but how long it takes to ma-
ture. Succession planting requires
that we toss the traditional notion of
"getting your garden in Memorial
Day weekend" onto the compost pile
of outdated ideas and replace it with
a new approach in which the garden
is never really "in" but always in the
process of being planted. When we
do this, we transform gardening from
an isolated activity that we try to fit
into our busy lives into a holistic
lifestyle that can bring health and

BTUs are converted to tonnage at the rate of
12,000 BTUs per ton.
In Florida's hot, humid climate, if the AC unit
runs for 20 minutes and is off for 20 minutes, the
AC system is oversized. The oversized system is
not allowed to run long enough to remove the
moisture out of the air from inside the building.
If the AC unit does not remove the moisture, oc-
cupant comfort suffers and a callback in new
construction is certain. High interior moisture
is a sure ticket for mold litigation.
The HVAC contractor designs the duct system
with software called Manual D. There are many
duct systems to consider in the design process,
all with a difference in price and performance.
There are flex ducts with a duct wall insulation
value of R-6. There are also metal ducts, rigid
duct board, and other options.
When the ductwork is installed, all the con-
nections should be sealed with Mastic. Sealing
the ductwork with Mastic ensures the duct sys-
tem will not come apart and allows cool air to
flow into the living space leak-free for at least 35
years. The Mastic sealer on the ducts allows for
energy credits in the Manual J, as well as cred-
its for the energy rating of the building. For more
efficient operation and additional energy cred-
its, the duct system should be installed in condi-
tioned space using chases, plant shelves, or
suspended ceilings.
The major control of the HVAC system for the
building owner is the thermostat. The thermo-
stat controls the temperature, and depending on
how sophisticated the thermostat is, equipment
run times can be limited to meet the comfort lev-
els of the building owner or used to change the
humidity In a building with a humidity problem,
a thermidistat is suggested to control humidity

winter, any hummingbird seen locally in a Cen-
tral Florida winter garden would likely be a
wandering black-chinned hummingbird. Coral
Honeysuckle is a prime nectar source for them.
Flower colors range from bright scarlet red to
orange on different plants. Groups are clustered
at the tips of stems. The last pair of opposite,
oval leaves join and clasp around the stem to in-
dicate a flower is about to develop. Individual
tubes have 5 joined petals flaring at the ends of

and temperature at the same time. Using a hu-
midistat can cause moisture and mold problems.
If humidity is a concern, an HVAC system with
a dual-stage compressor and a variable-speed air
handler can be used. In a large home or building,
split systems might be considered for additional
energy efficiency and cooling capacity.
During the year-round operation of the HVAC
equipment, filter maintenance is an important
concern. A proper filter, MERV 8 or higher,
should be changed monthly to allow for clean
and efficient operation of the HVAC system.
Spending money on exotic filters should only be
done if the building occupants are under a doc-
tor's care and take medication for asthma, hay
Ffever, or any respiratory ailments. Considering
the HVAC system, on most operational days, only
runs for 25 percent of the time during a 24 hour
period, expensive and exotic filter systems do
not completely clean the air of particulates
every time the HAVC system operates.
To have an efficient HVAC system, equipment
sizing and proper operation are important to
keep maintenance and utility expenses low. If
you have questions or want additional informa-
tion please call your local utility, energy rater, or
HVAC contractor

listener's letters. The radio show continued
until 1953, and appeared on television on
NBC 1950-51, on CBS 1951-53, and on ABC
1953-55. When McConnell died in 1954,
Andy Devine replaced him and the show
was renamed "Andy's Gang."
All of the premiums, giftware, and adver-
tising associated with the show are of spe-
cific collecting interest. Your Froggy
squeeze toy was produced while McConnell
was still hosting the show. Froggy was pro-
duced in two sizes, the smaller one 5 inches
and the larger one 9 to 9 1/2 inches. Small
size Froggys sell from $50 in as-is condition
to $200 in the original box. Large size as-is
Froggys sell from $75 to as high as $700 mint
Dear John: I found eleven of these cups
and saucers in an old shoebox, carefully

wrapped, in perfect condition. The cups
are marked "Steubenville, Made in USA."
Can you shine any light on them? I would
appreciate it very much. A. Y, Crystal
Dear A.Y: Collecting cups and saucers
has been popular for a long time, and gen-
erally is a very affordable category They
were produced by the great, the near-great,
and the common porcelain companies. De-
sign and interior magazines often feature
table settings using a different cup and
saucer at each place setting. It looks like
your cups and saucers are in excellent con-
dition. They were made by the Steubenville
Pottery Company, located in Steubenville,
Ohio. The company was in business from
1879 to 1959. Potential dollar value is $5 to
$10 per cup and saucer.
Dear John: A while ago, a lady called in
about Red Rose Tea figurines. This is what
I know. My mother has been drinking Red
Rose Tea for as long as I can remember and
I am 50-something. She is 91 and still drink-

ing it She says it is the best She used to col-
lect the figurines and gave me her collec-
tion years ago. They are tiny little critters
made out of porcelain by the Wade Com-
pany of England, if memory serves me cor-
rectly I have seen them for sale in antiques
and collectible stores at prices ranging
from 50 cents to $3. The older ones are bet-
ter, of course. I am attaching the side label
from her latest box showing their recent
collection of these figurines. You get one in
the bigger, specially marked boxes still
today You can find out more about them at
www.redrose.com. It is good tea. C.S., In-
Dear C.S.: I was not aware of the little fig-
urines used as premiums in Red Rose Tea.
You mention the Wade Company, which I
am familiar with, was the maker. Wade fig-
urines have been a specific category of col-
lecting, especially in England. Wade
figurines were produced by several compa-
nies under the Wade name starting in the
early 19th century In 1959 they joined

forces to form the Wade Group. I appreci-
ate your letter and the information on Wade
and Red Rose Tea.
Dear John: Enclosed are a few photo-
graphs of a secretary I would like to know
more about. My mom gave it to me. I do not
know how old it is or the monetary value. It
is in excellent condition. -M., Internet
Dear M.: I think your secretary bookcase
was made in America about 100 years ago,
or at least close to it. It could have been
made in Grand Rapids, Mich.; or Chicago.
Current market interest is soft; potential
dollar value is below $500.

likely to cause splitting if you
pre-drill holes that are slightly
smaller than the diameter of
nails you're using.
There are three ways to add
a simple back or bottom to your
box. The easiest is to cut a piece
of quarter-inch- or half-inch-
thick sheet material and then
fasten it to your box with glue
and small finishing nails. If you
prefer to hide the edges of your
bottom or back panel, one op-
tion is to create a two-sided
notch along the inside edges of
the sides that matches the
thickness of your back panel. A
router spinning a rabbeting bit
with a bearing is the easiest
way to create it.
A third option is to create a
three-sided groove, called a
dado, that contains the back or
bottom panel. A table-mounted
router or table saw are ideal
tools for creating this groove.

The Shelf Box:
Bookcases and more
This design has a top, bottom
and two sides connected with
butt joints, and additional hori-
zontal pieces create shelves.
Using glue with either nails or
screws is the simplest option for
anchoring these shelves, but
there's a trick to getting shelf
spacing and orientation correct
By cutting your top, bottom and
shelves all the same length, the
sides simply straddle the ends
during assembly Cut scrap ply-
wood spacers to fit between the
shelves as you're joining them,
first to one side of the shelf, then
another. The spacers ensure
correct placement

The Timber Box
Outdoor projects often in-
volve large timbers or logs, and
though most of these structures
are more like frames than
boxes, the principles of box
construction apply Square tim-
bers make a great sandbox en-
closure or raised bed.
Beam boxes are often part of

the floor frame of small build-
ings. Because timber structures
are so large, even a 24-inch fram-
ing square won't offer an accu-
rate reference for assembling
corners. In these cases, equaliz-
ing diagonals is the best way to
ensure square corners. Eight-
inch- and 12-inch-long galva-
nized spikes offer an excellent
way to join parts in corners, and
a 6- or 8-pound sledgehammer is
perfect for driving them. Don't
try to use anything lighter, and
always wear safety glasses -
bits of metal often break off
spike heads when they're
pounded. Create lap joints using
a hand-held circular saw to
make multiple cuts across the
ends of your timbers every quar-
ter-inch, then remove the waste
with a mallet and chisel.

Gardeners: Sharpen your sense of humus

For The Associated Press

Let's pay homage to humus. As the
garden gets into full swing, it's a good
time for such tribute, because enthu-
siasm can be parlayed into action.
No one can say exactly what humus
(pronounced HUE-mus) is because it's
a witch's brew of thousands of organic
compounds that result from the decom-
position of dead plants and animals.
"Yuck," you say? Don't. Think of
compost, leaf mold, the spongy, dark
layer of earth you see when you push
aside leaves on the forest floor. Think
of the rich, dark soils of our Midwest-
ern plains, the Argentine pampas, the
Russian steppes. Such soils have been
the breadbaskets of the world because
they are rich in humus.
Both the chemistry and the feel of
humus make it such great stuff.
For instance, humus is covered with
negative charges, which keep posi-
tively charged plant foods, such as
potassium and calcium, from washing
out of the soil.
A soil rich in humus is also rich in
microbial glues. At first, glue of any
kind might seem like a bad thing for
soil, but what these glues do is to join
small clay particles into larger aggre-
gates. Large aggregates have large air
spaces between them, and lo and
behold formerly tight clay soil is
now breathing as easily as well-aer-
ated sand.
Humus also has buffering acidity,
which means that you no longer have
to be so careful about getting soil acid-
ity (pH) exactly right. And humus
binds with certain nutrients iron,
for example to make them more
easily absorbed by plants.
Physically, the sponginess of humus
makes soils fluffier even as it absorbs
water just what plants like.
Humus is one of those few things in
life that you your soil, rather can-
not get too much of. Although it's nat-
urally present in all soils, if you
garden you have to conscientiously
preserve and augment humus.
This is because many garden activi-
ties hasten humus decomposition. Not
that humus decomposition is all bad;
many of humus' benefits, such as re-
lease of plant nutrients, come about as
humus decomposes. But when humus
loss outstrips its accumulation, it's like
taking money out of a bank faster than
you put it in.
Tilling the soil and using concen-
trated nitrogen fertilizers accelerate
humus decomposition. Tillage charges

the soil with air, causing microbial
populations to soar, and these hungry
microbes then gobble up humus very
quickly Following an initial burst of
nutrients, the soil is left poorer. Con-
centrated nitrogen fertilizers have a
similar effect, so go easy on both tillage
and concentrated fertilizers.
You can and should add humus to
your soil. Grow it in place by setting
aside part of your garden or part of the
season to cover crops, which are
plants grown specifically for soil im-
provement. Grassy plants, such as
oats, rye, sorghum and wheat, are best
for increasing soil humus.
And haul humus or the makings of
humus into your garden in the form of
compost, straw, leaves, wood chips
and other bulky plant materials. Just

lay these materials on top of the
ground and the goodness will natu-
rally work its way down. You'll also get
mulch's benefits, which include lock-
ing moisture in the soil, preventing
wide swings in soil temperatures and
snuffing out weeds.
Of course, I've only scratched the
surface (ha, ha) in this homage to
humus. Once you have gained rever-
ence for this material, explore ways to
preserve and augment it. Humus is
what put the "organic" in organic gar-
dening, and a humus-y soil is the ear-
mark of any good gardener.
A pile of humus, made from organic
compounds from the decomposition of
dead plants and animals, is shown in
New Paltz, N.Y.
