improvement the
owner described as
cost-prohibitive that
had not been required
when he opened the
business in 2001.
He was given a time
period to comply, which
prompted his decision
to close down Dec. 29.

Lecanto High School's Matthew Giardino took home three individual championship titles at the Class 3A adapted track
and field state championships as well as the team title for Lecanto. The events included the 200- and 800-meter races
and the shotput. This was his first year competing in the events.

Gas prices look likely to rise in 2013


PAT FAHERTY
Staff writer
Citrus County will ring in 2013
with higher prices at the pump and
the likelihood of even higher gas
prices as the year goes on.
While gasoline prices declined
from November through the holiday
shopping season, prices apparently
bottomed out a day or two before
Christmas and are inching up as the
year comes to an end.
And according to GasBuddycom,
it has become an annual trend, with


prices rising between Christmas and
mid-January It is a trend the Amer-
ican Petroleum Institute attributes
to high demand caused by holiday
driving.
Aside from the recent gas price in-
crease, the average annual pump
price makes 2012 a record-breaking
year AAA reports this year's average
for a gallon of regular retail gasoline is
$3.61, 10 cents more than the annual
average in 2011. Price trends were
also off the norm this year, with gas
prices peaking in April and hitting
bottom during the first week of July


Area gas prices rebounded in Au-
gust, creeping up to nearly $4 a gal-
lon in early September. Prices
started a downward trend in mid-
October that continued except for a
slight increase around Thanksgiving.
Christmas-weekend travelers found
prices as low as $3.07 for regular at
State Road 44 and Interstate 75.
"Gas prices are doing exactly what
was expected, closing out the year on
an upswing," said Jessica Brady AAA
spokeswoman, the Auto Club Group.
"Motorists could very likely see
pump prices increase into mid-Jan-


uary before starting to retreat again.
This year, much like 2011, was a
volatile year for both oil and gas
prices, with some unexpected trends,
and next year could be very similar"
On Thursday, a barrel of oil was
trading around $90 on the New York
Mercantile Exchange. "This is sig-
nificant regardless of what's driving
it," said Gregg Laskoski, senior pe-
troleum analyst with GasBuddycom.
"We've seen wholesale prices have
increased this week in crude oil,

CHAMPS
Continued from Page Al

In Giardino's sophomore
year in high school, he
claimed individual champi-
onships in three events -
the 200- and 800-meter races
and the shotput of the Class
3A adapted portion for
athletes with disabilities.
Born with spina bifida
and wheelchair-bound, Gia-
rdino enrolled in the
Florida program that pro-
vides disabled high school
students the chance to com-
pete in adapted track and
field events. Florida and
Georgia are the only two
states with the program.
"Never feel that you are
limited or that you can't do
something, because we are
all capable of doing anything
that we want," Giardino said
in a previous interview.
On May 4, Giardino raced
against the clock at the state
meet, as no other athletes com-
peted against him. He also
won the team title for Lecanto
in adapted track and field.
That day he said, "I feel
special (having) been given
the opportunity and setting
the example for other people.
(And I like) being an inspira-
tion for other people to try
something different. I'd like
to see four or five kids in the
state compete against each


other (in adapted events in
the future). Like actually be
competitive. That's kind of
what Georgia does; they have
four or five people who race
(each other). They have some
pretty good races."
One day Matthew hopes
to race fellow athletes like
himself.
On April 25, Heinzman,
then a high school senior,
won the Region 3A-2 girls
pole vault title in Tampa
with a vault of 11 feet 9
inches. The vault exceeded
her personal record by 9
inches and gave her the top
vault in her class in the state
heading into the state meet.
Heinzman gave credit to a
growth spurt of two inches
to a height of 5-foot-8.
Those two inches, along
with hours of dedicated
training, qualified Heinz-
man for the state meet at the
University of North Florida
in Jacksonville.


However, she couldn't
compete until she com-
pleted another assessment
of her skills.
On May 4, the morning of
Heinzman's state meet, she
tested for the International
Baccalaureate and then
headed to Jacksonville for
the state track and field
championship. The 90-
minute International Bac-
calaureate test was at
Lecanto High School and
started at 7:45 a.m. Immedi-
ately afterward she had to
leave for a three-hour trip to
Jacksonville for the Class 3A
pole-vaulting competition,
which started at 1 p.m.
The international program
is geared toward preparing
the brightest and highest-
achieving students for col-
lege. The course load is
demanding, rigorous and ac-
ademically challenging.
Heinzman had been prepar-
ing for it for the last two years

of her high school career and
it couldn't be rescheduled.
During a previous inter-
view, Heinzman said, "I just
prayed about it. God is with
me. I just trust that he'll get
me through this."
Her prayers were heard.
With only time for one
warm-up jump of the 10 allot-
ted, Heinzman won the
FHSAA Class 3A state pole
vault championship hours
after completing the Interna-
tional Baccalaureate test With
a jump of 11 feet, 6 inches, she
claimed the title and out-
jumped the field by 6 inches.
She said in May, "I
thought to myself, 'I've pre-
pared all season, I can do
this.' I just visualized what I

warm-up jump in. (I) was
still trying to get out of the
testing mindset. My brain
was kind of burned out. But
it didn't bother me because
if I let it bother me than I
wouldn't be able to do well."
Heinzman showcased a
combination of athletic talent
backed by equally strong ac-
ademic prowess. She gradu-
ated from Lecanto High
School with a 4.4 GPA and
continued to Florida Interna-
tional University in Miami
with a full academic/athletic
scholarship majoring in
electrical engineering.
Since she has been in
Miami, she has been train-
ing to compete in the up-

coming track and field sea-
son with the goal of break-
ing 13 feet.
However, she has had to
train around injuries. In Au-
gust, she broke her finger
and continued to pole vault
unaware her finger was bro-
ken. About a month and a
half ago, she broke her foot.
She goes for an X-ray next
week to find out if her foot
has healed.
"I hope that I will be a lot
stronger this year," Heinzman
said. "I will just keep visualiz-
ing and pray for it to happen."

Drinking, driving don't mix


ERYN WORTHINGTON
Staff writer

While New Year's Eve festivi-
ties are approaching and plans
are being confirmed, officials are
reiterating this message: Don't
drink and drive. Joining forces
with law enforcement, an auto-
mobile club is partnering with a
brewer to promote sober driving.
AAA and Anheuser-Busch are
discouraging intoxicated drivers
from getting behind the wheel
and risking the lives of motorists
through the Tow to Go service
program. Tow to Go has been
providing towing and rides
home to intoxicated drivers
for more than 14 years for
free to AAA members and
non-members.
"Around Christmas and New
Year's Eve, calls for Tow to Go
have historically spiked," said
Gerry Gutowski, senior vice presi-
dent of automotive services, at the
Auto Club Group. "AAA has always
played a critical role each holiday
weekend by protecting motorists
on our roadways; however, it is
everyone's responsibility to make
good decisions and always choose
a designated driver"
Joanna Newton, AAA spokes-
woman from Tampa, said confi-
dential rides and tows within a
10-mile radius to a safe location
are available for anyone who
may have had too much to drink,
and they can call 855-2-TOW-2-
GO or 855-286-9246. The AAA tow
truck transports the driver and
vehicle.
"There's no better gift anyone
can give than being a designated
driver, and thanks to Tow to Go,
anyone who may have had too
much to drink can get a safe ride
home during the holidays," said
Kathy Casso, vice president of
Corporate Social Responsibility
for Anheuser-Busch. "We are

season by placing crashed cars and trucks along the county's roadways.


proud to join forces with AAA
and their team of roadside assis-
tance service vehicle drivers on
this great program that helps to
keep our roads safe."
Designed to be used as a last
resort, Tow to Go has safely re-
moved more than 20,000 intoxi-
cated drivers from the roads
since its inception in 1998. The
program is available until Jan. 1.
The Florida Highway Patrol
and Citrus County Sheriff's Of-
fice join law enforcement organ-
izations across the nation this
month to remove impaired driv-
ers from the roadways.
"We want everyone to enjoy the
holidays, but also we want driv-
ing on our roadways to be safe,"
said Col. David Brierton, FHP di-
rector "The patrol will be out in
full force to help save lives, and
we are not going to tolerate im-


paired driving. So remember:
drive sober or get pulled over"
CCSO has placed "DUI cars"
- severely damaged vehicles -
where they are most visible at
prominent locations throughout
the county as a graphic re-
minder to travelers of the dan-
gers of drinking and driving.
CCSO reported plans are in
place to have additional officers
on patrol countywide conducting
bar, business security and DUI
checks in addition to covering
service calls and traffic enforce-
ment. Motorists are urged to
obey all traffic laws and engage a
designated driver if the con-
sumption of alcoholic beverages
is anticipated.
The FHP is offering the follow-
ing tips for safety during the
holidays:
Plan ahead. If you will be


drinking, do not plan on driving.
Designate a sober driver or find
another safe way home. Even one
drink increases the risk of a crash
while driving a motor vehicle.
If you are impaired, find an-
other way home. Use a taxi, call a
sober friend or family member or
use public transportation.
Take the keys. Do not let a
friend drive impaired.
Be responsible. If someone
you know is drinking, do not let
them get behind the wheel. If
you see an impaired driver on
the road, contact law enforce-
ment. Your actions may save
someone's life and inaction
could cost a life.

Police find body of
kidnapped man
Police said a man who was
kidnapped on Christmas Eve
was found dead in a wooded
area less than a mile from his
Pensacola apartment.
The body of Torrance "Top
Cat" Hackworth was found
Wednesday following an
anonymous tip to police.
The Pensacola News
Journal reported four or five
men forced their way into
Hackworth's girlfriend's
apartment Monday. Hack-
worth was beaten, bound,
gagged and thrown into the
trunk of a car that was later
found submerged in Pen-
sacola Bay.
Police say the crime was
drug-related. They're investi-

the Silver River Museum.
Acaba is no stranger to
Silver River Museum, or Sil-
ver River State Park for that


matter. He often took his
middle school science stu-
dents to the area for field
trips. Being back at the mu-
seum felt like home for
Acaba, who taught at Dun-
nellon Middle
School from 2000 to
2004.
"I love this place,
Sit's just wonderful,"
S he told a packed
house of Marion
County residents
who came to hear
oe him speak Dec. 12
at the special home-
coming celebration. "I spent
a lot of time here."
He's spent his fair share
of time seeing the Earth
since making his maiden
voyage into space in 2009.
Acaba spent 13 days in orbit
during his first journey into
space aboard Discovery His
most recent trek came
aboard a Russian Soyuz
rocket The California-born


Acaba spent months train-
ing for his four-month stint
aboard the ISS, then trained
with his Russian counter-
parts for his ride to the ISS.
He compared riding
aboard a shuttle and Soyuz
rocket to driving a sports or
luxury car
During his time aboard
the ISS, Acaba worked with
astronauts from other coun-
tries, including Russia and
Japan, conducting a variety
of experiments as well as
general maintenance on the
facility. Acaba's task was to
man the robotic arm, which
was used to help other ships
dock at the station. He did
not take a space walk during
his four-month stay, but he,
like the others, had been
trained to do every neces-
sary task.
"You might have one pri-
mary task, but you have to
be able to do them all," he
explained to the crowd.


While speaking to the
crowd, Acaba showed a 15-
minute slideshow of the pic-
tures taken during his
training, preparation for his
stay and return from the
ISS. He then fielded a vari-
ety of questions from those
in the audience, who ranged
in age from 1 to 70.
After the question-and-
answer session, Acaba pre-
sented a patch, which was
mounted on a special, color-
ful NASA montage poster
featuring the photos of the
astronauts in space, to
School Board Chairman
Ron Crawford, who ac-
cepted it on behalf of the
museum. Scott Mitchell, the
director of the museum and
environmental education
center, was thrilled to ac-
cept the collectible as well.
Crawford also made
Acaba an offer to come back
and teach when he decides
to leave NASA.


"It's certainly something
I've thought of doing,"
Acaba said about returning
to the classroom once his
career with NASA is
complete.
Among those in the audi-
ence included Acaba's for-
mer principal, Jane
Ashman, co-worker Beth
Wood, a teacher at Dunnel-
lon Middle School, and two
former students, Sarah Zu-
nich and Jessica Sistler,
both of whom enjoyed
Acaba's stories about his ca-
reer as an astronaut and as
a teacher
The self-proclaimed "hip-
pie" even joked with the au-
dience about seeking advice
from his students about cut-
ting off his ponytail prior to
his interview with NASA of-
ficials.
"They said, 'Don't do that,
be yourself,"' Acaba said.
"Luckily, I was smarter than
they were" and got it cut.

we get a complaint, we fol-
low up on it"
She said it was not their
intention to shut the restau-
rant down and Deputy Chief
of Fire Rescue Jim Good-
worth would meet with the
owner Friday to help get
him into compliance.
According to the Depart-
ment of Business and Pro-
fessional Regulations,
Pudgee's is currently li-
censed as a mobile food dis-
pensing vehicle. It was last
inspected Nov 8, 2012, and
"met inspection standards"
according to the depart-
ment's website. It was previ-
ously inspected April 12,
2012, with the same result.
However, during the Nov
8 inspection, Pudgee's was
cited for having electrical
wiring in disrepair a vio-
lation, which Sterling
showed was promptly cor-
rected. However, he be-
lieves it triggered the
subsequent fire inspection.
Goodworth explained
there is a process in place
and the fire department is
notified by email when
those types of violations are
found.

which may be tied to the

He cited another statistic
that could be troubling to

with the Department of
Business and Professional
Regulations, said via email,
"The Division of Hotels and
Restaurants is required by
statute to notify the local
fire departments and the
state Fire Marshal of these
types of violations on a
weekly basis and would
have notified the local and
state fire authorities of this

She added, "The Division
did not have any direct con-
tact with local law enforce-
ment about this
establishment."
"We will see what we can
do to help them remain
open," Goodworth said. He
has scheduled an inspection
for Friday and hopes to
meet with Sterling at that
time.
Since Sterling posted the
closing date on a roadside
sign, there has been an out-
pouring of support for the
small family business, as hot
dog lovers came in for what
could be their last visit.
"It was crazy here. People
came out in droves from all
over the state," Sterling said
Thursday afternoon, and he
was still gearing up for a
possible big finale on

90 cents a gallon. So if Citrus
County prices average $3.30
a gallon on Dec. 31, in 2013
local drivers could see a
high of $4.20 a gallon.
"It's an interesting statis-
tic that seems to hold up,"
Laskoski said, though 2011
was an exception. He spec-
ulated if the country goes off
the fiscal cliff, suggesting
the country would go
deeper into recession, gas
prices could drop on lower
demand.


GENERAL
Continued from Page Al

known popularly as "Stormin' Norman"
for a notoriously explosive temper
He served in his last military as-
signment in Tampa as commander-in-
chief of U.S. Central Command, the
headquarters responsible for U.S.
military and security concerns in
nearly 20 countries from the eastern
Mediterranean and Africa to
Pakistan.
Schwarzkopf became "CINC-Cent-
com" in 1988, and when Saddam Hus-
sein invaded Kuwait three years later
to punish it for allegedly stealing
Iraqi oil reserves, he commanded Op-
eration Desert Storm, the coalition of
some 30 countries organized by Pres-
ident George H.W Bush that suc-
ceeded in driving the Iraqis out.
"Gen. Norm Schwarzkopf, to me,
epitomized the 'duty service, country'
creed that has defended our freedom
and seen this great nation through
our most trying international crises,"
Bush said in a statement "More than
that, he was a good and decent man -
and a dear friend."
At the peak of his postwar national
celebrity, Schwarzkopf a self-


proclaimed political independent -
rejected suggestions that he run for
office, and remained far more private
than other generals, although he did
serve briefly as a military commenta-
tor for NBC.
While focused primarily in his later
years on charitable enterprises, he
campaigned for President George W
Bush in 2000 but was ambivalent
about the 2003 invasion of Iraq, say-
ing he doubted victory would be as
easy as the White House and Penta-
gon predicted. In early 2003 he told
the Washington Postthe outcome was
an unknown:
"What is postwar Iraq going to look
like, with the Kurds and the Sunnis
and the Shiites? That's a huge ques-
tion, to my mind. It really should be
part of the overall campaign plan," he
said.
Initially Schwarzkopf had en-
dorsed the invasion, saying he was
convinced that former Secretary of
State Colin Powell had given the
United Nations powerful evidence of
Iraqi weapons of mass destruction.
After that proved false, he said deci-
sions to go to war should depend on
what U.N. weapons inspectors found.
He seldom spoke up during the
conflict, but in late 2004, he sharply
criticized then-Defense Secretary


Donald Rumsfeld and the Pentagon
for mistakes that included inade-
quate training for Army reservists
sent to Iraq and for erroneous judg-
ments about Iraq.
"In the final analysis I think we are
behind schedule. ... I don't think we
counted on it turning into jihad (holy
war)," he said in an NBC interview.
Schwarzkopf was born Aug. 24,
1934, in Trenton, N.J., where his fa-
ther, Col. H. Norman SchwarzkopfJr,
founder and commander of the New
Jersey State Police, was then leading
the investigation of the Lindbergh
kidnap case, which ended with the ar-
rest and 1936 execution of German-
born carpenter Richard Hauptmann
for stealing and murdering the famed
aviator's infant son.
The elder Schwarzkopf was named
Herbert, but when the son was asked
what his "H" stood for, he would reply,
"H." Although reputed to be short-
tempered with aides and subordinates,
he was a friendly, talkative and evenjovial
figure who didn't like "Stormin' Norman"
and preferred to be known as "the Bear,"
a sobriquet given him by troops.
He also was outspoken at times, in-
cluding when he described Gen.
William Westmoreland, the U.S. com-
mander in Vietnam, as "a horse's ass"
in an Associated Press interview.

EPAAdministrator Jackson


announces resignation


Associated Press

WASHINGTON EPA Administrator
Lisa Jackson, the Obama administration's
chief environmental watchdog, is stepping
down after nearly four years marked by
high-profile brawls over global warming
pollution, the Keystone XL oil pipeline,
new controls on coal-fired plants and sev-
eral other hot-button issues that affect the
nation's economy and people's health.
Jackson constantly found herself caught
between administration pledges to solve
thorny environmental problems and
steady resistance from Republicans and
industrial groups who complained that the
agency's rules destroyed jobs and made it
harder for American companies to com-
pete internationally
The GOP chairman of the House Energy
and Commerce Committee, Rep. Fred
Upton of Michigan, said last year that
Jackson would need her own parking spot
at the Capitol because he planned to bring
her in so frequently for questioning. Re-
publican presidential nominee Mitt Rom-
ney called for her firing, a stance that had
little downside during the GOP primary
Jackson, 50, the agency's first black ad-
ministrator and a chemical engineer, did
not point to any particular reason for her
departure. Historically, Cabinet members
looking to move on will leave at the begin-
ning of a president's second term.
Despite the opposition, which former EPA
chiefs have said is the worst they have seen
against the agency, Jackson still managed
to take significant steps that will improve air
quality and begin to curb global warming.
"I will leave the EPA confident the ship
is sailing in the right direction, and ready
in my own life for new challenges, time
with my family and new opportunities to
make a difference," she said in a state-
ment. Jackson will leave sometime after
President Barack Obama delivers his
State of the Union address, typically in
late January


In a separate statement, Obama said
Jackson has been "an important part of my
team." He thanked her for serving and
praised her "unwavering commitment" to
the public's health.
Environmental groups had high expec-
tations for the administration headed by
Obama, after eight years of President George
W Bush, who rebuffed agency scientists
and refused act on climate change. Jackson
came into office promising a more active EPA
But she soon learned changes would not
occur as quickly as she had hoped. Jack-
son watched as a Democratic-led effort to
reduce global warming emissions passed
the House in 2009 but was then abandoned
by the Senate as economic concerns be-
came the priority. The concept behind the
bill, referred to as cap-and-trade, would
have established a system where power
companies bought and sold pollution rights.
Jackson experienced another big set-
back last year when the administration
scrubbed a clean-air regulation aimed at
reducing health-threatening smog. Re-
publican lawmakers had been hammering
the president over the proposed rule, ac-
cusing him of making it harder for compa-
nies to create jobs.
She also vowed to better control toxic
coal ash after a massive spill in Tennessee,
but that regulation has yet to be finalized
more than four years after the spill.
Jackson had some victories, too. During
her tenure, the administration finalized a
new rule doubling fuel efficiency stan-
dards for cars and light trucks. The re-
quirements will be phased in over 13 years
and eventually require all new vehicles to
average 54.5 mpg, up from 28.6 mpg at the
end of last year.
She shepherded another rule that
forces power plants to control mercury
and other toxic pollutants for the first
time. Previously, the nation's coal- and oil-
fired power plants had been allowed to
run without addressing their full environ-
mental and public health costs.


'Rescue Me' singer Fontella Bass dies at

72 of complications from heart attack


Associated Press

ST LOUIS Fontella
Bass, a St Louis-born soul
singer who hit the top of
the R&B charts with
"Rescue Me" in 1965, has
died. She was 72.
Bass died Wednesday
night at a St. Louis hos-
pice of complications
from a heart attack suf-
fered three weeks ago, her
daughter, Neuka Mitchell,
said. Bass had also suf-
fered a series of strokes
over the past seven years.
"She was an outgoing
person," Mitchell said of
her mother. "She had a
very big personality. Any
room she entered she just
lit the room up, whether
she was on stage or just
going out to eat."
Bass was born into a
family with deep musical
roots. Her mother was
gospel singer Martha Bass,
one of the Clara Ward
Singers. Her younger
brother, David Peaston, had
a string of R&B hits in the
1980s and 1990s. Peaston
died in February at age 54.
Bass began performing
at a young age, singing in
her church's choir at age
6. She was surrounded by
music, often traveling on
national tours with her
mother and her gospel
group.
Her interest turned from
gospel to R&B when she
was a teenager and she
began her professional ca-
reer at the Showboat Club
in north St. Louis at age
17. She eventually audi-
tioned for Chess Records
and landed a recording
contract, first as a duet
artist. Her duet with
Bobby McClure, "Don't
Mess Up a Good Thing,"
reached No. 5 on the R&B
charts and No. 33 on the
Billboard Top 100 in 1965.


Associated Press
Fontella Bass performs Sept. 2, 2001, at the Big Muddy
Blues Festival on Laclede's Landing in St. Louis. The St.
Louis-born soul singer who hit the top of the R&B charts with
"Rescue Me" in 1965 died Wednesday of complications
from a heart attack suffered three weeks ago. She was 72.


She co-wrote and later
that year recorded "Rescue
Me," reaching No. 1 on the
R&B charts and No. 4 on the
Billboard pop singles chart.
Bass's voice bore a striking
resemblance to that ofAretha
Franklin, who is often
misidentified as the singer
of that chart-topping hit.
Bass had a few other modest
hits but by her own accounts
developed a reputation as a
troublemaker because she
demanded more artistic
control, and more money for
her songs. She haggled over
royalty rights to "Rescue
Me" for years before reach-


ing a settlement in the late
1980s, Mitchell said. She sued
American Express over the
use of "Rescue Me" in a
commercial, settling for an
undisclosed amount in 1993.
Bass lived briefly in Eu-
rope before returning to St.
Louis in the early 1970s,
where she and husband
Lester Bowie raised their
family She recorded occa-
sionally, including a 1995
gospel album, "No Ways
Tired." She was inducted
into the St. Louis Hall of
Fame in 2000.
She is survived by four
children. Bowie died in 1999.

Associated Press


NEW YORK The fiscal
cliff took the stock market on
a roller coaster Thursday.
Small developments in the
tense budget standoff
yanked stocks back and
forth throughout the day
In the end, U.S. stocks
closed lower for the fourth
day in a row, sending the un-
welcome message that the
budget standoff is still far
from solved, the economy
still far from healed.
The erratic performance
underscored how the fiscal
cliff can yank the market
back and forth. The term
refers to automatic tax in-
creases and government
spending cuts that will kick
in next week if Republicans
and Democrats can't reach a
budget agreement by Mon-
day night.
Stocks opened by hopping
between small gains and
losses, pulled up by news
about fewer unemployment
claims and down by the con-
tinuing lack of a budget deal
in Washington.
Then, stocks turned deci-
sively downward at mid-
morning, unnerved by twin
fetters: a report that con-
sumer confidence fell to its
lowest level since August,
and a warning from the Sen-
ate Majority Leader, Demo-
crat Harry Reid, that he
feared the government
would miss the Monday


deadline for working out a
budget compromise.
A bright spot of economic
news, an increase in sales of
new homes, couldn't dis-
tract investors from worries
about the budget impasse.
Both Republicans and De-
mocrats demanded that the
other side take the initiative
in compromising. The Dow
Jones industrial average fell
as much as 150 points, more
than 1 percent
Then, just as the Dow ap-
peared headed toward a


triple-digit loss, it whip-
sawed again, this time
higher, after House leaders
announced in the late after-
noon that the chamber
would meet Sunday evening
to work on the budget.
At the close, stocks
trimmed their losses but
still closed lower. The Dow
finished down 18.28 points
to 13,096.31. The Standard &
Poor's 500 index fell 1.73 to
1,418.10. The Nasdaq com-
posite index lost 4.25 to
2,985.91.

WASHINGTON U.S. consumers peer-
ing over the fiscal cliff don't like what they
see.
Fears of sharp tax increases and govern-
ment spending cuts set to take effect next
week sent consumer confidence tumbling in
December to its lowest level since August.
The Conference Board said Thursday
that its consumer confidence index fell for
the second straight month in December to
65.1, down from 71.5 in November.
The survey showed consumers' outlook
for the next six months deteriorated to its
lowest level since 2011- a signal to Lynn
Franco, the board's director of economic in-
dicators, that consumers are worried about
the tax hikes and spending cuts that take ef-
fect Jan. 1 if the White House and Congress
can't reach a budget deal.
Earlier this week a report showed con-
sumers held back shopping this holiday
season, another indication of their con-
cerns about possible tax increases.
The December drop in confidence "is ob-
vious confirmation that a sudden and seri-
ous deterioration in hopes for the future
took place in December presumably re-
flecting concern about imminent 'fiscal
cliff' tax increases," said Pierre Ellis, an
economist with Decision Economics.
The decline in confidence comes at a
critical time when the economy is showing
signs of improvement elsewhere.
A recovery in housing market is looking
more sustainable. On Thursday, the gov-
ernment said new-home sales increased in
November at the fastest seasonally ad-
justed annual pace in 2 1/2 years.
And the job market has made slow but


steady gains in recent months. The average
number of Americans applying for unem-
ployment benefits over the past month fell
to the lowest level since March 2008.
But the political wrangling in Washington
threatens the economy's slow, steady progress.
President Barack Obama and House returned
to Washington Thursday to resume talks with
just days to go before the deadline.
A short fall over the cliff won't push the
economy into recession. But most econo-
mists expect some tax increases to take ef-
fect next year. That could slow economic
growth.
While consumers are more worried
about where the economy is headed, they
were upbeat about present conditions, ac-
cording to the latest survey
A key reason for that is gas prices, which
hit a 2012 low of $3.21 a gallon last week.
Normally, that would prompt consumers to
spend more on holiday shopping.
But the opposite has happened. A report
from MasterCard Advisors Spending pulse
indicated sales grew in the two months be-
fore Christmas at the weakest rate since 2008,
when the country was in a deep recession.
There were other distractions this holi-
day season. In late October, Superstorm
Sandy battered the Northeast and mid-
Atlantic states, which account for 24 per-
cent of U.S. retail sales. That, coupled with
the presidential election, hurt sales during
the first half of November
Shopping picked up in the second half of
November. But fiscal cliff worries damp-
ened sales in December.
The National Retail Federation, the na-
tion's largest retail trade group, remains
optimistic that sales won't be quite as bad
as earlier reports have suggested.

POOLING RESOURCES

principle


he land is ready; the
money is not. The idea is
ready; the people are
not. Time is short.
These are the challenges fac-
ing a proposal to merge a
planned Citrus Memorial
Health System wellness center
at the Allen Ridge medical
complex with a YMCA facility
planned for an 18-
acre site in the THE IH
Pine Ridge area.
If the proposal CMHS
bears fruit, both consider
CMHS and the initial
YMCA could save
money and better OUR O1
serve their Great de
clients. But to Gat mke
make the deal tma
work, CMHS will
need approval
from 800 donors and the YMCA
will need to raise $5 million in
18 months.
Getting 800 OKs and raising
$278,000 a month will be no
easy task, but the alternative is
two facilities barely a mile
apart serving the similar func-
tions and competing with each
other.
For the YMCA, the deal's a
good one: The organization as-
sures use of its facilities, and re-
ceives an opportunity to
familiarize CMHS clients with a
service they may not be utilizing
For CMHS, the proposal is
more precarious: It's spared
the burden but loses the perks
of property ownership, and is
saddled with a potentially
decades-long lease. However, it
also stands to save money, both


Poor decisions by BOCC
Let's see how we're saving
money lately: Brad
Thorpe goes to New Or-
leans for a little under
$5,000 for some training
that is absolutely a joke
that we don't need. Let
me see, another $80,000
salaried position for a
tourism director who will
no longer be able to do
her job unless she CA
spends tons more money. 563-
That's really important.
And of course, we have a
bus now to take dogs around and
show them off to people cats,
too. What is wrong with this
commission?
Adams hit wrong chord
At the (Dec. 11) board meeting,
Commissioner Scott Adams spent
a fair amount of time explaining
why he was against raising taxes.
However, raising taxes was not the
agenda item.
Commissioner Adams voted no
against the agenda item to allow
for MSBU and MSTU revenue op-
tions. The other commissioners
voted yes and presented a good
case as to why a yes vote on these
revenue options were the smart
move.
I wish Commissioner Adams
would have spent his time telling
us why he is against having these
revenue options available to use
when and if needed.

risks angering the aforemen-

But competition is not neces-
sarily in the interest of either
organization, no matter their
long-term goals. Jockeying for
supremacy in a small commu-
nity could leave both faltering
and the community at a disad-
vantage.
Ultimately, both organiza-
tions exist to serve the public.
They can best do that under
one roof, working together and
sharing resources, rather than
constructing fiefdoms and
competing for clients. It is that
spirit we feel should guide
both parties through negotia-
tions, not battles over land,
petty personal stakes or specu-
lative what-ifs. If the plan
makes economic sense, and the
people of Citrus County stand
to benefit, make it happen.


Christmas thief
Can you imagine bringing home
a stolen Christmas tree?
JND Wow, that ought to really
make you proud.
Parade regret
I've lived in Citrus
Springs almost 20 years.
I'm very disappointed in
the parade in the past
couple of years. It's been
dwindling down to almost
)579 nothing. This one that
just passed, if it wasn't
for the five fire trucks, I
clocked the parade to being over
in 11 minutes. I'm very disap-
pointed that there's no participa-
tion. Long Island, where I'm from,
a Santa Claus is allowed to drive
on the fire truck. How come they
don't allow that anymore? I'm
very disappointed in the participa-
tion in the parade.
Loss support
I'm reading in the newspaper
about all the support groups for
widows and widowers and I think
it's a very wonderful thing. My
problem, however, is I am a fairly
young widow but I do work and I
don't get out of work until 4:30
and everything I see is during the
morning or the early afternoon,
and I think it would be nice if they
had something in the evenings for
the rest of us who have a loss and
especially who are going through
a really bad time right now.


Losing environmental protection


S ome of the state's
strongest protec-
tors of our natu-
ral resources were
recently expelled from
the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental
Protection (DEP).
Fifty-eight of the most I
knowledgeable and
long-serving employ- Paula I
ees were let go in order OTI
to fulfill the governor's VOI
promise/threat of less
regulation.
While I believe that the execu-
tive branch of government has
the responsibility of managing
state agencies, it's vital that
within their discretion lies the
moral imperative to abide by the
mission of the department and
the laws that govern them.
While administrations come
and go, longtime department em-
ployees possess the commitment,
institutional knowledge and con-
tinuity to adhere to that mission.
They also should be free to per-
form their duties without fear of
political reprisals and without
overt political favoritism.
When political novice Rick
Scott became Florida's governor,
he appointed Herschel Vinyard,
a shipyard executive, to be secre-
tary of the Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection. Many of us
who have been involved with en-
vironmental and water resource
issues were very concerned
about what message that sent and
worried about the possible lack
of commitment to protection.
Trying to keep an open mind
and respect the governor's right to
name his secretaries, I reluctantly
voted to confirm Mr Vinyard after
meeting with him and asking nu-
merous questions about his phi-
losophy and intentions. Once
confirmed, he validated my fears
through his actions relating to
water management districts, fund-
ing and selling state-owned lands.
Stories leaked out about water
management district employees
being purged because they were
perceived to be too tough on po-

litically influential de-
velopers and engi-
neers. Then came the
story of a Department
of Environmental Pro-
tection employee let go
for doing what the law
required, despite
higher-ups wanting
her to turn her head on
)ockery a questionable permit-
IER ting issue.
CES Now a major clean-
Sing out of veteran em-
ployees puts the state's
environment in further and po-
tentially irreversible peril. Poor
planning decisions lead to long-
term and costly damage.
This has come about on top of
the dissolution during the gov-
ernor's first year in office of
the Department of Community
Affairs and the demise of
Florida's Growth Management
laws that protected our resources
while limiting costly sprawl.
Florida, more than most states,
relies on its natural beauty to
keep our economy humming.
While 18 million residents popu-
late our state, more than 80 mil-
lion visitors a year flock to our
beaches, rivers, lakes and parks,
keeping tourism as a cog in our
economic engine. Additionally,
ecotourism filled the void when
visitors couldn't afford the more
costly tourist venues, keeping
many Floridians employed.
Florida's economy depends
heavily on its environment, which
brings tourists and new residents
here and provides the quality of
life that businesses indicate is a
leading factor in their relocation
decisions. According to Tim Cen-
ter, executive director of Sustain-
able Florida, "we look forward to
policies and practices that serve
the long-term needs of Florida
that will continue to attract mil-
lions ofvisitors, millions of dollars
in investments and help busi-
nesses and residents prosper"
It is sheer folly to think that
protecting the environment is
somehow responsible for killing
jobs or hurting business when, in


fact, it does the opposite.
Eric Eikenberg, CEO of the
Everglades Foundation, believes
the restoration of the Everglades
is a key driver of Florida's eco-
nomic future. He stated, "Nearly
one in three Floridians depend
on the Everglades ecosystem for
their drinking water Without that
supply of water, Florida's eco-
nomic growth will be
jeopardized."
After decades of good environ-
mental stewardship under gover-
nors of both parties Graham,
Chiles, Martinez, Bush, Crist -
many of our successes are being
dismantled in a mere two years.
A plea to the governor and the
Department of Environmental
Protection secretary: Please put
the "protection" back in the De-
partment of Environmental
Protection.
This can be achieved by taking
the following steps:
Rehire and keep the most
knowledgeable and experienced
employees who have dedicated
their professional lives to the
protection of Florida's natural
resources.
Reverse shortsighted deci-
sions and impulsive actions that
will have long-term and costly
consequences.
Resist the urge to expedite
developments of the politically
connected at the expense of
Floridians' quality of life.
Adequately fund water re-
source development to ensure a
safe and plentiful water supply
and avoid a return to the water
wars of the past
Restore polluted water bod-
ies and prevent further water
quality degradation; it is much
more costly to clean up a polluted
water body than to keep it clean
and healthy

CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE


LETTERS to the Editor


Now is the time
So many times in the past
few years when a mass
shooting has taken place
we have heard the phrase:
"This is not the time to dis-
cuss gun control."
Why is it not the time
when 20 children lie cold
on slabs with bullets from
high-capacity magazines in
semi-automatic guns rid-
dling their bodies and hor-
ribly stopping the hopes,
dreams and futures of en-
tire families?
If not now, then when? If
not by us today, then by
whom, at what certain date
in the future?
And, if your answer is
"not ever," because "guns
are not the problem, peo-
ple are," then stay out of
the conversation.
First, I'm not talking
about confiscating even
one weapon from even one
law-abiding, sane person
with the ability to read and
write like an adult.
Second, the second para-
graph of the 1791 Second
Amendment of the U.S. Con-
stitution: "A well regulated
militia, being necessary to
the security of a free state,
the right of the people to
keep and bear arms, shall
not be infringed." There is
no logical or intellectually
honest way to read that
paragraph to mean that
each and every man, woman
and child in America has
the absolute unchecked un-
regulated "right" to own any
and all weapons and keep it
all a secret.
The Constitution was
written as a way to estab-
lish the rules, regulations
and practices of the new
United States of America.
This amendment was
written not to protect the
individual states but the
"free state" and anybody
reading it at that time knew
this because that is how
people in those days re-
ferred to England, France,
etc. the term "free state"
meaning "nation," not Ala-
bama or Maine.
"A well regulated militia"
- this clearly means that
rules, limitations, condi-
tions, exceptions of time,
place, persons and docu-
mentation would be estab-
lished by Congress and the
various local, county and
state legal authorities. The
Founding Fathers, having
seen what a mess it was or-
ganizing and manning an
army for the Revolutionary
War, wanted to be sure that
the various governments
could quickly assemble a
defensive force in case the
country was attacked -
and as shown over time,
this included being able to
suppress possible internal
rebellions see the
Whiskey Rebellion.
A "well regulated mili-
tia" is not a ragtag group of
guys running around col-
lecting, buying and shoot-
ing machine guns at
imaginary foreign in-
vaders, and certainly not
firing at the CIA or FBI or
the local sheriff just check-
ing up on what all that
noise is out the woods.
True, there are well-
meaning people who can
argue these points differ-
ently, and we cannot ignore
those arguments. However,
it must be clear that it is to-
tally illogical and histori-
cally incorrect to cite the
Second Amendment as if it
were written in stone and
not written by men who
were well aware of the dif-
ference between absolute
and limited government.
This is a government organ-
ized and controlled by free
men, not the divine right of
kings and the Founding Fa-
thers made it clear that
there must be rules of be-
havior, and there must be
laws written and followed.
Jefferson, Madison, Mon-
roe, Adams, Henry,
Franklin, etc., also knew
that the Constitution itself
would indeed must be


changed over time.
Now is the time for the
people of the United States
- by, with and through
their representatives to
address the multiple issues
surrounding and including
gun control. Open discus-
sions, facts, opposing views
and opinions must be
heard and heard in
public.
To say and do nothing


today simply condemns
those dead children and fu-
ture dead children to silent
oblivion.
Robert P Curran

Educating public
In reference to JoAnn
Peter's letter of Dec. 11 re-
garding the ADA, I want to
thank her for bringing this
out in the open and for all
the good work her organi-
zation does for the children
of Citrus County.
I would like to add a lit-
tle more information on
this subject
According to federal law,
business, store and restau-
rant owners and employees
are allowed to ask only two
questions: Is this a service
dog? What service does this
dog provide? They cannot
ask any medical questions
regarding your condition or
demand proof it is a serv-
ice dog.
However, most legitimate
service dogs wear an identi-
fying vest, clearly marking
them as service dogs. The
dogs are actually trained so
that while wearing the vest
they know they are working
and no nonsense is allowed.
There are many types of
service dogs, including see-
ing-eye dogs, dogs for the
hearing-impaired, medical-
alert dogs, dogs trained to
aid the physically disabled
and dogs trained to help
veterans with PTSD. These
are the majority of recog-
nized service dogs.
The Service Dog Act of
2010 clearly excludes so-
called "Comfort Dogs" and
"Emotional Support Dogs"
(except PTSD) from being
legitimate service dogs. It
is, in fact, a criminal act to
pretend or state your dog is
a service dog if it is not
trained to assist you with a
true medical condition.
As Mrs. Peters stated,
service dogs are highly
trained animals. They go
about their job with quiet
dignity and near perfect
obedience. They are not
considered pets. They are
working partners to their
owners. They are not nor-
mally carried in the own-
ers' arms, nor do they ride
in shopping carts. Keep in
mind that even the smallest
dogs can actually be
trained service dogs for
certain medical conditions,
but they should never be
treated as anything but a
working dog no matter
what size they are.
I am also aware of a per-
son in west Citrus County
who purports, at a high
cost, to be a service dog
trainer, and to get your dog
"registered" as a service
dog when, in fact, they do
absolutely no training and
there is no federal service
dog registry Although by
law a service dog does not
have to be trained by a pro-
fessional, it takes a highly
skilled trainer with many
years experience to prop-
erly train a service dog.
The facts I have stated
here regarding service
dogs may be verified by

Child's body
found in Las Vegas
NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev.
- Police investigating the
week-old disappearance of a
10-year-old Las Vegas girl
were at the scene on Thurs-
day of the discovery of a
child's body in an undevel-
oped housing tract in North
Las Vegas.
Authorities didn't immedi-
ately know if the body be-
longed to Jade Morris, Las
Vegas police homicide Capt.
Chris Jones said.
However, Jones also said:
"I can tell you that the likeli-
hood is that this is our victim."
A passer-by called 911
about noon about a girl's
body in a remote area near
Dorrell Lane and North 5th

Retailers recall
baby recliners
WASHINGTON Four
national retailers agreed to
recall more than 150,000 Nap
Nanny baby recliners after at
least five infant deaths and
dozens of reports of children
nearly falling out of the reclin-
ers, the Consumer Product
Safety Commission said
Thursday.
The recall covers Nap
Nanny Generations One and
Two, and the Chill model infant
recliners. All were sold be-
tween 2009 and 2012. The
Nap Nanny was designed to
mimic the curves of a baby car
seat, elevating an infant slightly
to help reduce reflux, gas,
stuffiness or other problems.
Gov. recovering
from surgery
ROCHESTER, Minn. -
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton
has undergone spinal surgery
that will likely sideline him at
least through New Year's.
Dayton spokeswoman
Kathleen Tinucci said the
Mayo Clinic surgeon who per-
formed the procedure Thurs-
day reported it went as
planned, without any compli-
cations. She said the gover-
nor was out of surgery and
awake by mid-afternoon.
Dayton hopes the opera-
tion will relieve a constriction
in his lower back, known as
stenosis, which Mayo says is
generally caused by normal
wear-and-tear on the spine
due to aging. The procedure
involves fusing vertebrae that
shift out of alignment.
Dayton turns 66 in a few
weeks.
He is scheduled to be re-
leased by Monday.

Turtle project takes dark twist


Associated Press


CLEMSON, S.C. Clemson Uni-
versity student Nathan Weaver set
out to determine how to help tur-
tles cross the road. He ended up
getting a glimpse into the dark
souls of some humans.
Weaver put a realistic rubber tur-
tle in the middle of a lane on a busy
road near campus. Then he got out
of the way and watched over the
next hour as seven drivers swerved
and deliberately ran over the ani-
mal. Several more apparently tried
to hit it but missed.
"I've heard of people and from
friends who knew people that ran
over turtles. But to see it out here
like this was a bit shocking," said
Weaver, a 22-year-old senior in
Clemson's School of Agricultural,


Forest and Environmental Sciences.
To seasoned researchers, the
practice wasn't surprising.
The number of box turtles is in
slow decline, and one big reason is
that many wind up as roadkill while
crossing the asphalt, a slow-and-
steady trip that can take several
minutes.
Sometimes humans feel a need to
prove they are the dominant
species on this planet by taking a
two-ton metal vehicle and squish-
ing a defenseless creature under
the tires, said Hal Herzog, a West-
ern Carolina University psychology
professor.
"They aren't thinking, really It is
not something people think about.
It just seems fun at the time," Her-
zog said. "It is the dark side of
human nature."


said privately elements of
any agreement would likely
include an extension of
middle class tax cuts with
increased rates at upper in-
comes as well as cancella-
tion of the scheduled
spending cuts. An extension
of expiring unemployment
benefits, a reprieve for doc-
tors who face a cut in
Medicare payments and
possibly a short-term meas-
ure to prevent dairy prices
from soaring could also be-
come part of a year-end bill,
they said.
That would postpone po-
litically contentious dis-
putes over spending cuts for

Longshoremen


strike nears

Associated Press

NEW YORK In just a few days, a
walkout by thousands of dock workers
could bring commerce to a near standstill
at every major port from Boston to Hous-
;on, potentially delivering a big blow to re-
tailers and manufacturers still struggling
;o find their footing in a weak economy
More than 14,000 longshoremen are
threateningg to go on strike Sunday a
wide-ranging work stoppage that would
immediately close cargo ports on the East
Coast and the Gulf of Mexico to container
ships.
The 15 ports involved in the labor dis-
pute move more than 100 million tons of
goods each year, or about 40 percent of the
nation's containerized cargo traffic. Los-
ing them to a shutdown, even for a few
days, could cost the economy billions of
dollars.
The master contract between the Inter-
national Longshoremen's Association
and the U.S. Maritime Alliance, a group
representing shipping lines, terminal op-
erators and port associations, expired in
September The two sides agreed to ex-
;end it once already, for 90 days, but they
have so far balked at extending it again
when it expires at 12:01 a.m. Sunday
The union said its members would
agree to an extension only if the Maritime
Alliance dropped a proposal to freeze the
royalties workers get for every container
;hey unload. The Alliance has argued that
;he longshoremen, who it said earn an av-
erage $124,138 per year in wages and ben-
efits, are compensated well enough

BRASILIA, Brazil Brazil-

President prefers
people over pets
JOHANNESBURG--
South Africa's president said
a dog should not be man's
best friend.
President Jacob Zuma
made critical remarks about
pet care that touch on sensi-
tive race relations in South
Africa, which was dominated
by whites until apartheid was
dismantled almost two
decades ago, The Star
newspaper reported
Thursday.
The newspaper cited Zuma
as saying in a speech
Wednesday that the idea of
having a pet is part of "white
culture" and that people should
focus on family welfare.
The president's office
sought to clarify his remarks,
saying he was encouraging
"the previously oppressed
African majority" to uphold its
own culture.
The president's remarks
triggered a flurry of retorts
from animal lovers on Twitter
and other social media.
Former economy
minister sentenced
BUENOS AIRES, Ar-
gentina -A former Argentine
economy minister was sen-
tenced Thursday to four years
in prison for corruption.
Felisa Miceli was forced to
quit in 2007 when Argentine
pesos and U.S. dollars' worth
the combined equivalent of
$52,000 were found in her of-
fice bathroom.
The unanimous ruling said
Miceli was guilty of the "ag-
gravated cover up" on an ille-
gal financial maneuver and
obstruction of justice for get-
ting rid of a police report
about the money. The local
court also ruled that Miceli will
be barred from holding any
public office position for eight
years.
The money was found by
federal police in a closet in-
side the office bathroom while
they were inspecting the
economy ministry.

Lecanto in good

all-around effort
SEAN ARNOLD

LECANTO Thursday's
matchup between the Lecanto
and Fivay boys basketball teams
in the Chris Nichols Christmas
Classic marked the return of Pan-
thers standout senior Richie Riz-
zolo, who hasn't played since
suffering a back injury in the


team's game against Citrus three
weeks ago.
Lecanto certainly enjoyed the
senior's 15 points (4 for 4 on free
throws) and three steals, but
it was strong perform-
ances from all over
Lecanto's basketball
roster that helped the
club cruise to a 92-59
victory over the Class 5A
Falcons on the opening
night of the two-day event.
Seven Panthers scored at least
nine points as reserves and
starters alike pitched in for a
comprehensive effort.
Lecanto (10-2) jumped out to a


25-10 lead in the first quarter be-
hind seven points and four re-
bounds by 6-foot-7 sophomore
Brandon Burich, who effectively
paired his shooter's touch
with his formidable size to
collect eight rebounds
S and equal a game-high
of 16 points.
A putback by Burich
with five seconds in the
second period helped his
squad secure a 46-30 halftime
advantage before Lecanto ex-
panded its lead in the third to go
ahead 71-47 on Fivay (3-12) with a

The final 90 seconds of
the game, according to
Richards, was a blur of ex-
citement.
"I knew once we caught
up, we had the capability to

of the final moments. "We

From tip-off to the heart-

shoot Citrus

to triumph

C.J. RISAK

LECANTO Defense has
propelled the Citrus girls
basketball team to promi-
nence over the past few
years, and that defense has
depended on pressure. But
when the Hurricanes took
on St. Petersburg Gibbs in
the opening round of the
Chris Nichols Christmas
Classic Tournament on
Thursday, they had to adapt.
Instead of using their
pressure to cause turnovers
that, in the past, led to easy
baskets, Citrus relied more
on its half-court motion of-
fense. The strategy worked,
thanks to superior perform-
ances by Liz Lynch and
Shenelle Toxen, who scored
18 points apiece in the
'Canes' 60-54 victory
"Coming from St. Pete, we
knew they were going to be
fast," said Lynch, who
scored all of her points in
the first half and netted 13
of her team's 14 first-quarter
points. "On this team, no
one person needs to come
out and be the high scorer
every game."
In her fourth year as a
starter at point guard, Lynch
has been looking more to
create shots for teammates
than to score herself, but
this game was different. The
first quarter was more than
half over and Citrus had just
two baskets both by
Lynch so she took com-
mand of the situation.
"I guess, like, when you're
wide open you pull up and
take the shot," she said.
It was what the Hurri-
canes needed to help them
find a rhythm, particularly
without their signature de-
fense to call upon.
"I felt they were faster
than us across the board,"
said Citrus coach Brian Lat-
tin, his team now 12-4. "(The
press) would have been a
disadvantage to us.
"Like always, our effort
was great. Our ball move-
ment and patience on
offense was very strong."
The 'Canes started slowly,
making just 6 of 19 first-
quarter shots, but began
converting those inside
chances in the second pe-
riod, making 8 of 13 tries to
increase their 14-11 lead
after the first quarter to
33-22 at the half.
Gibbs got it going in the
second half, using a 10-4 run
in the final 2:08 of the third
to make it 46-40 heading

nose tackle Josh Brent had a
blood-alcohol content of 0.189,
more than twice the legal limit,
after the car crash that killed
teammate and friend Jerry
Brown, according to documents
released by police Thursday
The 24-year-old Brent was tested


after the crash in the early hours of
Dec. 8 and the Texas legal limit for
drivers is 0.08 percent One report
said Brent was intoxicated, driving
over the speed limit and swerving
out of one lane when he struck a
curb in Irving, a suburb of Dallas,
causing the car to flip over
The crash report also says
Brent was driving with an ex-
pired and suspended driver's li-


cense obtained in Illinois, where
he pleaded guilty three years ago
to driving under the influence, a
misdemeanor
Brown was pronounced dead
at a Dallas hospital. Brent was ar-
rested and indicted Wednesday
on one count of intoxication
manslaughter. He faces up to 20
years in prison if convicted,
though he could also receive pro-


bation. Brent is free on $100,000
bond and required to wear an al-
cohol monitor. His attorney,
George Milner, did not return a
phone message Thursday
Authorities say they also found
an unopened bottle of Cognac
liquor in searching Brent's Mer-
cedes sedan, along with "multiple
receipts" and his iPad and cell-
phone. Brent and Brown report-


edly spent at least part of Friday
night at the club Privae Dallas.
The iPad and cellphone found in
the Mercedes have information
"from the events prior to and dur-

Seattle's Sherman wins suspension appeal

RENTON, Wash. Seat-
tle Seahawks cornerback
Richard Sherman won his
appeal of a four-game sus-
pension for use of perform-
ance-enhancing substances
on Thursday, making him el-
igible for the NFL playoffs.
Sherman posted "I won,"
on his Twitter account
Thursday morning, followed
by teammates tweeting their
congratulations. Sherman
added, "Thank you @nfl for
upholding the truth! To the
12s Thank you your faith is
rewarded! Thank you lord."
The decision was made by
former NFL executive Bob


Wallace.
Sherman was steadfast
since news broke of his
pending suspension that he
believed he would win on
appeal. Sherman's appeal
was based on errors in the
chain of custody of his sam-
ple and that there were mis-
takes made by the tester.
Sherman made his appeal
late last week.
NFL spokesman Greg
Aiello said in an email the
league is reviewing the de-
cision, but was declining
comment due to confiden-
tiality provisions.

weeks without fellow start-
ing cornerback Brandon

Browner's suspension ex-
pires after Sunday's game

"Congrats to Richard

peal! Happy for him & it'll
be great to have him with us
as we move forward," Sea-

According to STATS, Sher-

fensed. He is tied for second
in interceptions with seven.

Brooklyn lets

Avery Johnson go

Associated Press

NEW YORK Avery Johnson
was fired Thursday as coach of
the Brooklyn Nets, who have
fallen to .500 in their season of
new surroundings and elevated
expectations.
General manager Billy King an-
nounced the dismissal in a state-
ment. Assistant PJ. Carlesimo will
coach the Nets at home Friday
against Charlotte, according to
someone with knowledge of the
plans. The person spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity because details
were to be provided at a news con-
ference later in the day
"The Nets ownership would like
to express thanks to Avery for his
efforts and to wish him every suc-
cess in the future," owner Mikhail
Prokhorov said in a statement.
After a strong start to their first
season in Brooklyn, the Nets have
lost 10 of 13 games to fall well be-
hind the first-place New York
Knicks, the team they so badly want
to compete with in their new home.
But after beating the Knicks in
their first meeting Nov 26, proba-
bly the high point of Johnson's
tenure, the Nets went 5-10 and
frustrations have been mounting.
The Nets were embarrassed by
Boston on national TV on Christ-
mas, then were routed by Milwau-
kee 108-93 on Wednesday night for
their fifth loss in six games.
Star guard Deron Williams re-
cently complained about John-
son's offense, and Nets CEO Brett
Yormark took to Twitter after the
loss to Celtics to voice his dis-
pleasure with the performance.
Brooklyn started the season 11-
4, winning five in a row to end No-
vember, when Johnson was
Eastern Conference coach of the
month. But he couldn't do anything
to stop this slump, one the Nets
never anticipated after a $350 mil-
lion summer spending spree they
believed would take them toward
the top of their conference.
Johnson has been the Nets'
coach for a little more than two
seasons. He went 60-116 with the
Nets, who moved from New Jersey
to Brooklyn to start the 2012-13
season. Johnson coached the Dal-
las Mavericks to a spot in the NBA
Finals in 2006.
This is the NBAs second coach-
ing change this season following

Ryan said there was no way
he would play McElroy against
the Bills and the third-stringer
will "definitely be out" McEl-
roy had been listed on the in-
jury report Wednesday with a
mild abdominal strain.

Matsui retires from baseball


Associated Press

NEW YORK Free agent slug-
ger Hideki Matsui retired Thursday
from professional baseball, saying
he is no longer able to perform at
the level that made him a star in
two countries.
The 2009 World Series MVP with
the New York Yankees and a three-
time Central League MVP with the
Tokyo Yomiuri Giants struggled in a
brief stint with the Tampa Bay Rays
last season and recently made up
his mind to call it a career after 20
years the first 10 in Japan.
Despite choosing to make the an-
nouncement in New York because
the city was special to him, the
nearly hour-long news conference
was conducted only in Japanese
and was broadcast live to his home
country, where it was 7 a.m. Friday
A Japanese reporter translated por-
tions of the event for the four Amer-
ican baseball writers in attendance.
Before he left for New York in
2003, Matsui told his fans in Japan
that he would give his life to playing
in the major leagues, give whatever
he had, the reporter said. "Today is
the day he put a period to that."
In front of more than 15 cameras
and dozens of Japanese reporters,
many of whom detailed every as-
pect of his career in the United
States, the outfielder/designated
hitter gave a 12-minute speech be-
fore answering questions for about
40 minutes more, betraying little
emotion except for that sly smile he

Teams meet

today at

Russell Bowl

Associated Press

ORLANDO A lot has
changed since the last time
Rutgers and Virginia Tech
met on a football field.
The Hokies dominated the
Scarlet Knights during their
time as Big East Conference
rivals before Virginia Tech
left for the Atlantic Coast
Conference in 2004.
But as they prepare for
their 15th all-time meeting
in today's Russell Athletic
Bowl, Rutgers is no longer
anybody's whipping boy,
while Virginia Tech is the
team with something to
prove following a disap-
pointing season.
The Scarlet Knights (9-4)
are in a bowl game for the
seventh time in eight years
and are looking to win their
sixth straight bowl game
after just missing out on a
Bowl Championship Series
berth following in loss in
their regular-season finale.
Friday is an opportunity San
for them to not only win 10 Thu
games for the first time
since 2006, but go into their
final Big East season next L
year with momentum after
announcing plans to join the
Big Ten in 2014.
"I think 10-win seasons in
college football are the stan-
dard for elite programs,"
first-year coach Kyle Flood
said. "I think that puts you in
an elite status, and certainly "
at a university where it's Jos<
only been done twice in the Mil
past, I think you better take the
those things very seriously. T
These opportunities have strc
not come around as often for win
us as maybe for Virginia Fal
Tech, but this is an opportu- tior
nity for us to do that." sea:
For Virginia Tech, 10-win 395
seasons were pretty much day
the norm. The Hokies had ove
eight straight before and 11 in F
the past 13 years this season. Lop
To say the Hokies (6-6) mai

Associated Press
Former New York Yankees outfielder Hideki Matsui announced his
retirement from baseball Thursday following months of free agency after his
release from the Tampa Bay Rays in August.


flashed during his playing days.
Nicknamed Godzilla, Matsui was
already perhaps the most popular
player of his generation in Japan
when he signed a three-year, $21
million contract with the Yankees.
While Seattle's Ichiro Suzuki ap-
peared to shy away from the atten-
tion, Matsui walked right into the
spotlight and embraced the
scrutiny
Playing for the Yankees was, "one
of the best things that happened to
him in his life," the Japanese re-
porter quoted Matsui as saying.
No. 55 was a monster for New
York, too. Always cool under


pressure, Matsui hit a grand slam in
his first game at Yankee Stadium
and matched a World Series record
with six RBIs in his pinstripe finale
seven years later during the
clinching Game 6 of the 2009 Series.
"I've had a lot of teammates over
the years with the Yankees, but I will
always consider Hideki one of my fa-
vorites," Yankees shortstop Derek
Jeter said. "Despite being shadowed
by a large group of reporters, having
the pressures of performing for his
fans both in New York and Japan
and becoming acclimated to the
bright lights of New York City, he al-
ways remained focused and


committed to his job and to those of
us he shared the clubhouse with. I
have a lot of respect for Hideki."
In his career with New York, Mat-
sui made two All-Star teams and hit
.292 with 140 doubles and 597 RBIs.
He played in his first 518 major
league games after playing in 1,250
straight games in Japan.
In his first remarks after breaking
his wrist and ending that streak in
2006, he apologized for getting hurt.
Matsui returned four months later
and went 4 for 4.
Matsui was known for being stoic
but he also had a sense of humor,
and he got a good laugh Thursday,
telling the crowd that he doesn't like
to use the word "retirement" be-
cause he will play pick-up baseball.
Still, Matsui ruled out competing
this year in the World Baseball Clas-
sic or joining a team in Japan again.
"He was not confident he'd be
able to play at the level he played at
10 years ago," the reporter said.
In fact, Matsui still has not de-
cided on what to do next.
Matsui hit 21 homers for the Los
Angeles Angels in 2010 after New
York didn't offer him a new con-
tract, but his numbers fell off con-
siderably after that. He slumped to
.147 (14 for 95) with the Rays in 37
games before being released.
Overall, Matsui batted .282 with
175 homers and 760 RBIs for the
Yankees, Angels, Oakland Athletics
and Rays. In Japan he had a .304 ca-
reer average with 332 homers and
889 RBIs in 1,268 games.

es, who led the nation in comple-

in the No. 24 Spartans' 29-20 win
r Bowling Green.
ales led the drive that set up Austin
pez's 27-yard field goal with 4:43 re-
ning, and De'Leon Eskridge's 1-
i run with 2:34 left provided the
irance. San Jose State (11-2), in the
ional rankings for the first time
ce 1975, capped the year with a
en-game winning streak for its first
win season since 1940, a remark-
e turnaround for a program that

nth for a bigger payday at Col-
do, leaving defensive coordinator
it Baer in charge for the bowl.
er was interested in the job full-
e, but the school instead hired San
go's Ron Caragher, who attended
game as an observer.


Bowling Green (8-5) had a similar
turnaround, improving from 2-10 in
2010 under coach Dave Clawson. A
defense that allowed only 15.8 points
per game in the regular season -
ninth best among FBS schools did
a decent job against a San Jose State
team that was averaging 35.3 points.
But give Fales enough chances, and
he'll find a way to put points on the
board. He went over the 4,000-yard
passing mark for the season, hitting
Kyle Nunn for a 33-yard score to give
the Spartans a first-quarter lead and
finding the stutter-stepping Chandler
Jones for an 18-yard reception that
put San Jose State back in front, 19-
13, in the third quarter.
Bowling Green retook the lead in
the fourth quarter with a 68-yard
drive, finished offbyJohn Pettigrew's
1-yard run with 10:26 remaining.
But Fales went 7 for 10 on a 68-yard
drive that got well within range for
Lopez, who had a perfect season -
making all 17 of his field goal at-
tempts. The Spartans then forced a
turnover that led to Eskridge's clinch-
ing touchdown.
Lopez was less fortunate as an
emergency punter after Harrison
Waid was injured on San Jose State's
first punt of the game. Lopez's first
punt was blocked, setting up a Bowl-
ing Green field goal.
It was the first of two blocked punts
in the game. San Jose State's Bene
Benwikere got his hand on one in the
second half. The ball went out of the
end zone for a safety that cut Bowling
Green's lead to 13-12.
The Military Bowl was supposed to
pit Army against an ACC team, but


Army isn't bowl-eligible and the ACC
didn't have enough bowl-eligible
schools to fulfill its bowl tie-ins. As a
result, there was little excitement for
the game in the nation's capital. The
upper deck of RFK Stadium was vir-
tually empty during the second half of
the MAC-WAC matchup, and the at-
tendance was announced as 17,835.
Belk Bowl
Cincinnati 48, Duke 34
CHARLOTTE, N.C. Brendon Kay
threw for 332 yards and a Belk Bowl-
record four touchdowns, and Cincinnati
capitalized on Duke's inept play in the
closing minutes to beat the Blue Devils
48-34 on Thursday night.
Duke appeared to have the game in
hand and was driving for the go-ahead
score and its first bowl victory since
1961 but the final 80 seconds proved
disastrous. With the game tied at 34 and
the Blue Devils positioning themselves for
a winning field goal, running back Josh
Snead fumbled at the Cincinnati 5-yard
line with 1:20 left and Bearcats defensive
lineman John Williams recovered.
Kay then connected with tight end
Travis Kelce on an 83-yard touchdown
strike down the middle with 44 seconds
left for the go-ahead score.
Cincinnati (10-3) sealed it on the next
series when Maalik Bomar came crashing
into Duke quarterback Sean Renfree,
forcing a deflection that Nick Temple re-
turned 55 yards for a touchdown.
Renfree threw for 358 yards another
Belk Bowl record for the Blue Devils
(6-7).

Saunders,
Patchan leave UF
GAINESVILLE -
Florida safety De'Ante
Saunders and offensive
tackle Matt Patchan are
leaving the program.
Coach Will Muschamp
announced the pending
transfers Thursday after
the fourth-ranked Gators
landed in New Orleans for
the Sugar Bowl.
Muschamp said, "I think
they needed a fresh start
and that's all I've got to say
about it."
Saunders, a sophomore
from DeLand, played in
eight games this season.
He had 18 tackles and an
interception. Saunders
played in 12 games last
year, including nine starts,
and finished with 26 tack-
les and two interceptions.
Patchan, a fourth-year
junior from Tampa, has
missed all season with a
pectoral injury. He has
played in 27 games during
an injury-plagued career,
including 11 games as a
backup defensive tackle on
Florida's 2008 national
championship team.
Wade suspended
for one game
NEW YORK Miami
Heat guard Dwyane Wade
has been suspended one
game without pay by the
NBA for flailing his leg and
making contact with the
groin of Charlotte Bobcats'
Ramon Sessions.
The suspension was an-
nounced Thursday by Stu
Jackson, the NBA's execu-
tive vice president for bas-
ketball operations.
The incident happened
with 8:12 left in the fourth
quarter of the Heat's 105-
92 victory over the Bobcats
on Wednesday night. Ses-
sions was called for a foul
on the play.
Wade will serve the sus-
pension Friday night when
the Heat visit the Detroit
Pistons.
Lakers' Howard
fined $35K
NEW YORK Los An-
geles Lakers center Dwight
Howard was fined $35,000
by the NBA on Thursday
for a flagrant foul against
Denver's Kenneth Faried.
Howard was ejected with
5:02 left in the third quarter
in the Lakers' 126-114 loss
to the Nuggets on
Wednesday night. He was
called for a flagrant foul 2
when he jammed his hand
in Faried's face as the
Denver forward drove the
lane. Faried tumbled to the
floor, but shook off the fall
to stay in the game.
After the game, Howard
acknowledged it was a
hard foul and that it looked
bad when seeing it on re-
play, but he didn't think it
merited ejection.
QB Newton fined
for bad conduct
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -A
person familiar with the
penalty says the NFL has
fined Panthers quarterback
Cam Newton $21,000 for
abusive conduct toward a
game official.
The person spoke to
The Associated Press on
Thursday on condition of
anonymity because the
league hasn't announced
the fine.
Newton shouted at and
bumped referee Jerome
Boger in the fourth quarter of
Carolina's penalty-plagued
17-6 victory over the Oak-
land Raiders on Sunday.
Newton apologized after
the game, saying "the

Thunder rally past Mavs

Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY -
Kevin Durant scored 40
points while Russell West-
brook added eight of his 16
points in overtime to help
the Oklahoma City Thunder
beat Dallas 111-105 on
Thursday night for their
11th straight win at home.
Serge Ibaka added 19
points and matched his sea-
son high with 17 rebounds
as Oklahoma City charged
back from 10 points down in
the final 7:17 of regulation
and found a way to win after
losing back-to-back games
for the first time this season.
Darren Collison scored a
season-best 32 points for
Dallas. Dirk Nowitzki scored
nine points in his second 4it'
game back after offseason
knee surgery, showing some
rust down the stretch.
Westbrook turned the
game around with six
straight points after the
Mavs had gone up 104-101 on
Chris Kaman's bucket inside
midway through overtime.
Westbrook had a layup, hit a
jumper over Nowitzki and Associated Press
then made a leaping steal of Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook goes to the
an O.J. Mayo pass that led to basket against the Dallas Mavericks during the fourth quarter
a fast-break layup. Thursday in Oklahoma City. The Thunder won 111-105.

into the fourth quarter On
three occasions in the fourth,
the Citrus lead was trimmed
to four, but Gibbs hurt by
13-of-36 shooting from the
floor in the second half -

itors were also playing with-

lost its third consecutive
contest.
Junior point guard Devin
Pryor tallied 28 points and
guard Mitchell Ellis added
17 on 6-of-12 shooting from
the floor to pace Citrus of-
fensively
"I know you look at it and
Devin has 28," Citrus coach
Tom Densmore said, "but
we played unselfishly We
moved the ball well and got
everyone in on the scoring."
Randy Lynn, who Dens-
more said woke up Friday
morning in North Carolina
and made an eight-hour trip
to make tipoff, had 12 points
and a game-high 14 re-
bounds to control the paint
for the Hurricanes.
"We weren't sure what to
expect from Randy," Dens-
more said, "after that long
car ride."
Lynn's prowess inside
locked down the first half of
Densmore's "rebound and
push the ball" philosophy
while the trio of Pryor, Ellis
and Franklin were respon-
sible for the second part
Citrus raced out to an 8-0
lead behind a pair of layups
by Pryor, two free throws by

bench doesn't seem like
much (just six of the 26 first-
half points, and eight over-
all), defensively, the change
of pace was just what
Lecanto needed to keep
North Marion on its toes.
Cheyenne Biggs forced
five steals; three of which
ended up as quick points in
transition, and Deanna
Moehring and Taylor
Mitchell were ball hawks in
the paint, grabbing eight
and 12 rebounds, respec-
tively
"We're midway through
the season, and we had
some girls who haven't
touched the court much that
had to play almost the entire
game," Lecanto head coach
Brittany Szunko said. "It's
encouraging for a fresh start
coming into the new year"
Keeping up defensively
wasn't easy, however, as
North Marion's Shay Hardy
made it almost impossible
to stop the Lady Colts in the
paint. She scored 14 of her
25 points inside the paint.
Hardy's presence would
only become more apparent
in the second half, as she
went off for 14 points, 11 of
which came in the third
quarter Hardy did find her-
self on the bitter end of the
foul trouble early, and
fouled out with just under
four minutes remaining in
the game.
From that point on, it was
anybody's ball game.
Richards, who went on a
tear in the second half by
scoring 21 of her team's
final 28 points, gave all of
the credit to her team.
"We did great out there,"
she said. "Teamwork helped
out big time. We passed the
ball around, got everyone
involved. It was great It was
a great game back, and
we're definitely looking for-
ward to tomorrow."
Lecanto senior Buckley


seven rebounds for the Fal-
cons. Fivay got 12 points and
a third-period dunk from
Jerome Merritt, and 11
points each from Steven
Wetzel and Luke Calleja.
The Falcons pulled
within 10 in the second pe-
riod with 1:30 remaining be-
fore baskets by Michelet,
Makros and Burich helped
reassert Lecanto's control of
the game.
Burich and Lecanto head
coach Frank Vilardi each
spoke about the team's suc-
cess in getting their big men
heavily involved in the of-
fense after focusing on that
area in practice.
"I thought our bigs played

center Royhanna Streater
"We played a better second
half than first," said Gibbs
coach Ed Jackson, his team
falling to 9-6. "We had to make
some defensive adjustments
(at halftime), and we shored
that up in the second half. We
just couldn't make it up."
Another key factor in the
'Canes' victory was their
free-throw shooting. They
converted 8 of 9 from the line
in the fourth quarter and
were 15 of 20 for the game.


from Desmond Franklin,
who had 11 points.
For the game, Pryor
played as efficiently as a
scoring point guard can as
the 6-foot-1 blur hit 9 of 18
from the floor, 3 out of 4 3-
pointers and went 7 of 8
from the foul line.
As the pace picked up,
Pryor rose to the occasion,
scoring 22 of his points in
the second half.
Ellis paced the Hurricanes'
offense by hitting three mid-
range jumpers (two on pull-
ups off the dribble, another by
curling around a screen,
catching and firing) to push
Citrus' lead to 16-6 in the first
quarter
"I thought we played re-
ally well," Ellis said. "If we
score 80 points a game, I
don't know if anyone's going
to be able to stop us.
"Those are the easiest
shots in the game," he said
of his output. "Any player
should be able to hit those."
The Hurricanes led by as
much as 11 in the second
quarter before taking a 31-
24 lead into halftime.
Dunnellon's most danger-
ous offensive player was
Budo Sigogo, a 6-foot-6 for-
ward who totaled 23 points
and added six rebounds.
Tigers guard Chris Jackson
netted 16 points, 12 in the
second half.
"When they were able to

fantastic tonight," Vilardi
said. "Geoffrey, Brandon,
Ronnie (Crowe)- all our bigs
played great I think going in-
side-out forced Fivay to col-
lapse down and it helped us
get some good overall looks."
"We've been focusing on
getting the bigs more in-
volved in practice, and I
think that showed in the
game," Burich said. "The ball
was flowing and things were
going in tonight. It was just a
good night all around for us."
Lecanto plays Dunnellon
at 7:30 p.m. tonight, while
Fivay gets Citrus in the 6
p.m. game for Day 2 of the
Nichols Classic in the Pan-
thers gym.

Others adding to the points
netted by Toxen-who scored
eight in the third quarter and
six more in the fourth and
Lynch were Micah Jenkins
with eight and Treleasha Sim-
mons with seven. The game's
top scorer was Gibbs' Bria Bo-
stick, who had 21.

was giving us trouble,"
Densmore said.
If the first half was an ex-
ercise in patience and run-
ning a half-court offense,
the final 16 minutes were a
track meet
The most important se-
quence came after Dunnel-
lon's Desmond Frazier hit a
pair of threes around a long-
range shot by Pryor to make
it 38-35 Citrus.
Pryor responded with an-
other 3-pointer one of
three in the third quarter -
and Ellis canned one as well
to push the advantage to 44-
35.
The Tigers were never
closer than six points for the
rest of the way and actually
were down by 18 at one
point in the final period.
The teams played to a vir-
tual stalemate in the fourth
quarter The most notable
sequence came after Dun-
nellon cut the Citrus lead to
69-57 with 4:49 remaining.
The Hurricanes went in-
side to Lynn on three con-
secutive possessions for
layups against Sigogo, who
was saddled with four fouls,
to put the team up 75-57 by
the 3:18 mark and effec-
tively put the game away
Citrus plays at 6 p.m.
tonight against Fivay in the
final day of the Chris

Best of the year


Associated Press
Amy Adams, left, and Philip Seymour Hoffman, center, pose in a scene from "The Master." On Sunday, Dec. 9, the
Los Angeles Film Critics Association announced its picks for movies of 2012. The French old-age drama "Amour"
was chosen as the year's best film.


Coyle's top 10


films of2012

Editor's note: This is the second
in a three-part series of national
movie critics selecting their picks
as top 10 films of2012.
JAKE COYLE
AP movie writer

1. "Amour" It's a rare thing to
be in the hands of a master working
at the top of his game. Michael
Haneke's film about an aging
Parisian couple and the intersec-
tion of tenderness and cruelty is
devastating in both its story and ex-
ecution.
2. "The Master" In a year
where digital overtook film as the
dominant stuff of moviemaking,
Paul Thomas Anderson's 70-mm
post-WWII drama made a hypnotic
case for celluloid. Anderson's film
may have dawdled to its end, failing
to figure out what drew together a
drifter (Joaquin Phoenix) and a cult
leader (Philip Seymour Hoffman).
But the postwar atmosphere is
vivid: a searching landscape of bro-
ken and delusional men. Like the
ship that brings the two together,
rocking slowly past the Golden
Gate, the movie drifts away
3. "Margaret" After a lengthy
legal battle, a truncated version of
playwright Kenneth Lonergan's
follow-up to the brilliant "You Can
Count on Me" was released quietly
in late 2011. But it was this year
when the real version saw the light
of day on DVD. (It's three hours, but
I promise it's not slow, thanks par-
ticularly to the daughter-mother
duo of Anna Paquin and J. Smith-
Cameron.) Seek it out. It's a fasci-
nating if flawed New York
masterwork, made with a humanis-
tic touch unrivaled in movies.
4. "Moonrise Kingdom" Wes
Anderson dreams up a melancholy
island of young love and Norman
Rockwell. Sold.
5. "Not Fade Away" I never
knew the '60s, but I suspect David
Chase's first film has finally after
countless, more extreme stories -
nailed something authentic about
the decade and about rock 'n' roll's
atom-bomb-sized impact in subur-
ban homes.

can't enliven such a calcified figure,

HISTORY

Today is Friday, Dec. 28,
the 363rd day of 2012. There
are three days left in the year.
Today's Highlight:
On Dec. 28, 1912, San
Francisco's Municipal Rail-
way began operations with
Mayor James Rolph Jr. at the

50,000 spectators looked on.
On this date:
In 1832, John C. Calhoun
became the first vice presi-
dent of the United States to
resign, stepping down be-
cause of differences with
President Andrew Jackson.
Ten years ago: The U.N.
nuclear watchdog decided to
pull its inspectors out of North
Korea by New Year's Eve, a
step demanded by the North.
Mwai Kibaki and his opposi-
tion alliance won a landslide
victory in Kenyan elections,
breaking the ruling party's 39-
year grip on power.
Five years ago: President
George W. Bush used a
"pocket veto" to reject a
sweeping defense bill be-
cause he objected to a provi-
sion that would have
exposed the Iraqi govern-
ment to expensive lawsuits
seeking damages from the
Saddam Hussein era.
One year ago: North
Korea's new leader, Kim
Jong Un, escorted his fa-
ther's hearse in an elaborate
state funeral, bowing
somberly and saluting in front
of tens of thousands of citi-
zens who wailed and
stamped their feet in grief for
Kim Jong II.

Holiday doldrums can spark kids' creativity


Simple


craft


projects can

ease boredom

JENNIFER FORKER
Associated Press
It's inevitable during the
holiday season: Kids get
bored. But the doldrums are
just the thing for unleashing
children's creativity
Give them a few ideas
and supplies, and step out
of the way
Here, three crafts au-
thors offer ideas for turning
the blahs into hurrahs.
SOCKS
Brenna Maloney, a Wash-
ington, D.C., mother of two,
is the author of three sock-
project books, including
the new "Sock It To Me"
(Stash Books, 2012).
She turned to sewing
with stretchy socks five
years ago to offset job
stress. Replicating a fa-
vorite sock bunny her
mother had made her
when she was a girl, Mal-
oney then turned to craft-
ing snakes, mice, sea
creatures and, more re-
cently, evil clowns and
snowman assassins.
Some of her biggest fans
are pre-teens, who pose
new project ideas and ask
for help.
"I work with (the kids)
and bring them in on it,"
said Maloney, now an editor
at "National Geographic

She uses a sock's pattern,
plus stuffing and embell-
ishments to turn it into a
creature.
STORIES
Emily K. Neuburger's
crafting projects evolve

mer teacher, she offers art

dren out of her Amherst,
Mass., home.
The projects in her book
"Show Me a Story" (Storey

to play and experiment.

worlds and telling stories,"
she said.
For the holidays,
Neuburger suggests kids
share a personal memory or
retell the Christmas story
using memory cards or story
stones. Pictures from the
story are glued to cardboard
surfaces or small stones.
Neuburger uses colored
paper and fabric scraps to
make simple images.
"Learning to know what
to include in a story and
what to leave out is an im-
portant storytelling skill,"
Neuburger said in her
book.
She also recommends
making a story grab bag:
Allow kids to search
through magazines,
maps and catalogs
and cut out interest-
ing words, numbers
and pictures. Find
other images online.
Also, kids can draw,
paint or stamp
their own images.

Little


actress


exquisite


in beast


of a film
W ith such a regal
title, "Beasts of
the Southern
Wild" has to be good. And
the coming-of-age tale
about 6-year-old Hush-
puppy and her just-above-
sea-level "Bathtub" home
is astounding.
The swampy, run-down
Louisiana setting and its
inhabitants' pyro habits
make for shimmering,
ethereal cinematography
Moreover, the fickle,
muddy landscape gives off
an aura hovering between
genesis and apocalypse.
But as earthy and dirty
as Hushpuppy's world is,
every moment is instilled
with celestial poetry.
Amid Hushpuppy's talk of
the universe coming to-
gether and smashing to
bits, the actress playing
her, Quvenzhan6 Wallis,
stays small, human and fe-
rocious at once.
"Beasts of the Southern
Wild" follows Hushpuppy
(Wallis) and her father,
Wink (Dwight Henry).
Their home is a watery, al-
most island called "Bath-
tub." All Bathtub natives
have amazing names such
as Walrus, Little Jo, Miss
Bathsheba and Peter T
This salty crew seems to
live in squalor, yet some-
how, their cacophonous
trash-heap shanties reek
of opulence. One with na-
ture, Bathtub inhabitants
live off fresh crawdads,
never-frozen chicken and
gator tail. As Hushpuppy
and her father note, every
day is a holiday in Bath-
tub and life is beautiful.
Then, a tremendous
storm strikes the para-
dise. Hushpuppy believes
the universe is unravel-
ing, because she lit her
trailer on fire and hit her
ailing father in a spat. The
two paddle about their
submerged home and
search for survivors.
Everything in Bathtub's
ecosystem is off kilter Fish
and livestock are dying.
The monstrous, prehis-
toric Aurochs have come
back from extinction. All

Originating in Spring Hill, Florida, -
Chefs of Napoli II in Inverness makes you
feel as if you have stepped right into Italy.
If the aromas don't convince you, the tastes "'' l
certainly will. Even first generation Italians are
exclaiming, "Squisito!".
This welcome new addition to local dining is open
seven days a week and offers a classy ristorante atmosphere
with a Neapolitan cuisine. The foods of Naples range from recipes that were influenced
by the local aristocracy with very elaborate preparations that included meat; to the more
common offerings made from modest but nutritionally healthy ingredients such as pasta
and beans with local vegetables.
Based on the style of cooking famous in Naples, Chefs of Napoli II presents a complete
menu of exquisite specialties ranging from pasta dishes to seafood and veal. Pizza was
thought to have originated in Naples, and Chefs of Napoli II makes pizza that rivals the
homeland. There are lots of new entree dishes to tempt your palate, and prices range
from $12.00 to $16.00. A good selection of beer and wine is also available to complement
your meal. To top off your experience, try to save room for authentic cannoli or tiramisu.
No reservations are required as yet, but you can call ahead to be sure: 352/419-6554.
Chefs of Napoli II is located at 1546 U.S. Highway 41 in Inverness, Florida.

FOSTER
Continued from Page C1

the while, Hushpuppy contem-
plates the Earth's tremendous
struggles and troubles of her own:
growing up without a mother and
possibly losing her father
You can just eat up "Beasts of
the Southern Wild"' aesthetic.
The imagery is so dank you can
almost smell its acrid, rotting veg-
etation. Everything in Bathtub -
clothes, dinged-up dressers,
cracked knickknacks and liquor
bottles is slathered with exqui-
site grime. This ubiquitous layer
of silt and dust clouds catch the
sun, cloaking repulsive objects in
heavenly radiance. Tactile and
rank as "Beasts of the Southern
Wild" looks, the very dirt soiling


the landscape imbues the film
with transcendental light.
Accompanying "Beasts of the
Southern Wild's" aesthetic soul is
the cast's magnificent spirit. Wal-
lis could not have been better as
Hushpuppy Of course, her
squeaky voice and little stomping
physique are adorable. But she
possesses an unexpected world-
liness and heavenly wisdom, too.
Hushpuppy climbs about junk
mountains in her underwear,
cracks open stone crabs single-
handedly and does not shed a
tear at the prop of catfish barbs.
She's an unflinching titan. Willis
portrays Hushpuppy's other-
worldly musings in such a casual,
frank way, making her character
seem as old as Earth itself.
Meanwhile, Henry, who plays
Wink, injects fantastic tension
into the mostly sunny father-


daughter relationship. While
Wink is a caring man, he treats
his little tot as an equal. He
drinks heavily, curses, yells,
roughhouses and sometimes hits
Hushpuppy
It puts me on edge to see this
man behave so recklessly with
his daughter. Nevertheless,
Henry underpins Wink's tensest
moments with tough, undeniable
love.
All in all, "Beasts of the South-
ern Wild" is a spellbinding must-
see. I give it an A.
With a running time of 1 hour
33 minutes, "Beats of the South-
ern Wild" is rated PG-13 for the-
matic material including child
imperilment, some disturbing im-
ages, language and brief sensual-
ity. "Beasts of the Southern Wild"
will be available for rent at
Redbox on Dec. 31.


CRAFTS
Continued from Page C1

Glue these story-telling prompts
to cardstock (or cereal-box card-
board). Neuburger follows with
Mod Podge to seal the images, but
this step can be skipped.
After the images dry, place them
in a bag. From there, children can
pull cards to build a story together
It can feel like a game, she said.
"That element of the unknown
and the randomness kids love
it," Neuburger said. "They have to
work with it. There's humor"
ANIMAL TEMPLATES
If they can wield a pair of scissors,
children can make the cute charac-
ters in Sarah Goldschadt's book,
"Craft-A-Day" (Quirk Books, 2012). It


provides a crafting motif for each
week of the year, and a simple paper
cut-out or small felt object each day
There's an iPad app for download-
ing templates and instructions.
The animal patterns, including
a penguin, dog and raccoon, are
most likely to grab a child's imagi-
nation. After tracing a template,
kids can use it to make ornaments,
cards, magnets, gift tags, mobiles
and cake toppers.
Goldschadt, a graphic designer,
recently shared some of her crafts
with teenagers in an after-school
program at a library near her New
York home, and was impressed by
the kids' dedication to finishing
their owl and bird ornaments.
"It was the most quiet they'd
ever been," she said, "and they
stayed longer to get it done."

Dear Annie: I am a fortu-
nate mother of four beau-
tiful little girls, all under
the age of 8. While I
am not overweight, I
could be in better
shape.
How do I handle
strangers and distant
acquaintances who
approach me and ask
me when my baby is
due? I do have a little
bit of a belly, but it is
quite a stretch to as-
sume I am pregnant. I
find this to be incredi- AN
bly rude and then em- MAII
barrassing when I
have to say I am not
actually pregnant. I would never
approach a stranger to inquire
about her pregnancy unless she
brought it up first.
It is always women, never men,
who do this. One would think
they might be a bit more under-
standing in this department. -
No, I Am Not Trying for a Boy
Dear Not: We think people
often open their mouths before
their brains are in gear. No one
should ever assume a woman is
pregnant based on her appear-
ance. It is asking for trouble. But
we will also say if this happens to
you so frequently it is disturbing,
you might want to reconsider
your choice of clothing. You may
be accentuating your tummy
area more than you realize.
Dear Annie: Twice in the past
year I have been at events where
you could win some grand prize,
vacation trip or other gift. The
entry forms required filling in
my name, address, phone and
email.


I found out the hard way this
isn't what it's cracked up to be.
The first time, someone called to
say I'd won a free trip.
But the salesperson
insisted in order to
claim my prize, I had
to come to a specific
address and tour
townhomes. I went
and discovered I did-
n't win anything at all.
The second time
(for which I suppos-
edly won a free car), I
didn't answer their
IE'S calls, and then I
BOX blocked their number,
but the calls contin-
ued. I ended up phon-
ing them and asked them to stop
calling me, but they wouldn't lis-
ten. Finally, I said it was harass-
ment, and the salesman said he
would take my name off his list.
Tell people to be careful about
those entry forms. It could be a
scam. -Texas
Dear Texas: These aren't
scams. But they are misleading,
and you need to read the fine
print. They are similar to lotter-
ies or sweepstakes. Could you
win a free vacation or car? Yes.
But the odds aren't in your favor.
Someone will win the grand
prize, but most people will sim-
ply get a tour of townhomes,
timeshares or other vacation
property.
We haven't seen your entry
forms, but we suspect they actu-
ally said to fill out the form and
"win a free vacation" (no guaran-
tee) or "you have won a free gift,"
which could be anything, includ-
ing the tour you took. We hope
readers will take your warning to


heart and pay attention to forms
where they must put down per-
sonal contact information.
Dear Annie: I can relate to
"S.W in California," the father
who had a falling out with his
daughter and she cut off contact.
In response, he took her out of
his will.
My husband and I have trav-
eled this road with our adult
children. Some young adults are
simply selfish and ungrateful.
They expect their parents to tol-
erate everything they do (even
drugs), allow their friends into
the home (even drug pushers
and felons), give them money at
the drop of a hat (even when the
parents are struggling finan-
cially), and allow them to use
their home as a hotel or storage
facility. If the parents don't coop-
erate, the kids punish them by
being abusive or keeping the
grandkids away
I am tired of being treated so
poorly I have loved uncondition-
ally, and in return, I've received
disrespect and a broken heart.
My job is done. -Indiana Mom

PHILLIP ALDER
Newspaper Enterprise Assn.

Joey Adams, a comedian and author, said, "It's
very easy to be witty tomorrow, after you get a
chance to do some research and rehearse your ad
libs."
It is easy to be clever tomorrow after a deal
has finished. Experts, though, usually make the
right plays before they get to trick 13.
In today's deal, how should South play in five
spades after West leads the diamond queen?
North's three-diamond cue-bid showed spade
support and at least game-invitational values. East
doubled to indicate diamond support. So West
went on to five diamonds, hoping that if he went
down, it would be a cheap sacrifice. And South,
unsure who could make what, competed to five
spades.
Note that five diamonds goes down only if North
leads a spade. Otherwise, with hearts 3-3 and with
several dummy entries in trumps, West can make
the contract.
In five spades, declarer tried dummy's diamond
king, then ruffed East's ace. South drew two
rounds of trumps ending on the board, ruffed the
last diamond to eliminate that suit, then played a
club. West took his ace and would have done best
to shift to a low heart, forcing declarer to decide
what to do immediately But West, thinking that he
might get two heart tricks by force and worried
that South might have the heart 10, exited with the
club queen.
Declarer cashed dummy's club tricks, crossed to
hand with a trump, and led a low heart, West play-
ing low smoothly That was excellent defense, but
since West was marked with at least one heart
honor, South had to call for dummy's jack. And
when it held, he claimed.

Attention Consumers!
Please make sure you

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

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

To our
readers
Love it or hate it,
the Citrus County
Chronicle's daily
Sound Off is a must-
read for many in Cit-
rus County.
Sound Off com-

good barometer for
what Citrus County
residents are think-
ing, as well as for
what they believe
the Chronicle should
be covering more...
or less.
The Sound Off
comments in this
annual special sec-
tion are some of the
"best" received by
the Chronicle for

Dollar divorce
This morning, a CNN
news commentator made
this remark to a group of
European financial ex-
perts: "The Euro dollar is
like a trial marriage. If you
don't want to make it a
permanent affair, you just
cancel it."

Moronic
moment
On Monday, Jan. 23, a
cartoonist named Judge
disparaged Tim Tebow and
his praying. It is not that
he's praying for football,
you moron. He's praying
for the safety and good
health of himself and his
fellow football players.

Diabetic Deen
Well-known gourmet TV
chef Paula Deen, whose
show features delicious
but fat- and sugar-laden
recipes, recently acknowl-
edged she has been a
Type 2 diabetic for three
years. She is now a paid
spokesperson for a phar-
maceutical company sell-
ing a diabetic-control drug.

Baby bath
CNN had a very interest-
ing article on how to give
your baby a bath. A cou-
ple's baby wanted to climb
in the washer for the fun of
it. They put it in, closed the
lid, not knowing it automat-
ically locks, and turned it
on. It took them a few sec-
onds to figure out how to
undo it and get the child

out. I guess that's the easy
way to give it a bath rather
than warming the water
and the soap and all.

ish fable relating to leap

year. On Feb. 29, a single
woman could ask a man to
marry her. If he said "no,"
he had to buy her 12 pairs
of gloves so she had a dif-
ferent pair to wear each

BEST OF SOUND OFF






CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE

Compare cats
and dogs
Most of the people run-
ning for president in the
Republican Primary are
quoted as saying that they
are like President Reagan.
They are as much like
President Reagan as a
dog is to a cat.

Birds & bees
I'm sure glad that none
of the Chronicle staff wrote
the article this past week
on North Carolina making
payments to people that
they sterilized. What really
got me laughing, though,
was that they suggested
they also pay the sterilized
people's descendants.
Now did you get that the
descendants? How dumb
can one be? It would be
like getting an offspring
from a mule. Or maybe
that writer needs to get
some lessons on the birds
and the bees.

Eat your
heart out
This is about Sheriff
Dawsy, who thinks he has
elite police department or
one of the top police de-
partments ever. Well, I was
watching a movie about
police called "Courageous"
the other day and guess
what police departments
they're depicting in the
movie? Once again it's po-
lice officers from New York,
but this time Upstate New
York. So, Sheriff Dawsy,
eat your heart out.


BEST OF SOUND OFF


Mad dogs
The Tallahassee
cheaters who call them-
selves leaders should get
the $2.13 per hour plus
tips they are proposing for
tipped workers. This whole
state is going to the dogs -
and that is mad ones.

Animal house
Well, we've had the
GSA's spending Vegas
party and now we have 12
of the president's security
staff caught in a prostitu-
tion scandal in Colombia.
What's next? It seems that
federal government per-
sonnel have become like
the movie "Animal House"
since Obama took over.

Three Stooges
Well, it's in the paper
today: Florida is the 16th in
the nation for political cor-
ruption. Who can we thank
for that Larry, Moe or
Curly?


Too late to wait Fine foul


Recently, speaking to a
senior about his 401(k)
status, I asked him how
they're doing. He an-
swered, "At this rate, I'll
have to be 83 to start col-
lecting."

Skin deep
CNN had a very unusual
article on today about
women in China, and men
also, who wear masks over
their face to keep their skin
light. Apparently light skin
is prized there, as it is in


other countries where they
use products to lighten
their skin. Over here we
lather on the cream to get
darker. We must all be
nuts, as far as skin color.


mouths
CNN just had a com-
mentary where a township
in Massachusetts fines citi-
zens for using foul lan-
guage $20 is the fine.
Maybe the sheriff's office
in Citrus County should
start operating that proce-
dure here after some of
the foul mouths I've heard.

Ban Bloomberg
This is in response to
the Mayor Bloomberg


Causing

Guffaws


there in New York with his
bans on Big Gulps and all
this other stuff. Instead of
banning all these Big
Gulps and these steaks
and meats and all that,

(352) 726-8092


maybe they ought to ban
Mayor Bloomberg there
and the rest of his ilk.

Name game
Someone called in and
complained about the
hippo being called Lu in-
stead of Lucifer. Well, then
I suppose we shouldn't be
allowed to call Roberts
"Bob" or Richards "Dick" or
Donalds "Don" or Eliza-
beths "Betty" or Katherines
"Kathy," etc. Get a life and
stop griping about such
simple things as that. Go


volunteer there and then
you can call him Lucifer
every day.

TV sheriff
The most dangerous
place in Florida is between
the sheriff of Polk County
and a TV camera.

Camera crazy
In South Korea, people
are rewarded by the gov-
ernment for taking photos
of violators throwing ciga-
rette butts out of vehicles.
Don't worry about people
taking photos of sheriffs
who don't use their turn
signals.

Good deal
I have to pay for a mort-
gage, food, utilities, gas. I
can't afford $40 in lottery
tickets. Maybe I should
apply for an EBT card and
if I win on the lottery, then I
can pay them back. Isn't
that a good deal?

Curiosity kills
The pictures Curiosity is
sending from Mars are ab-
solutely fascinating. If they
do find a life form, I
certainly hope it isn't of the
feline type. After all, you
know what curiosity did to
the cat.

Careful, Gerry
Sounds like Gerry Mulli-
gan needs do slow down
and quit trying to eat and
drive and multitask so
much. I have the same
problem. But it seems like


Friday December 28, 2012 G3
we've heard about coffee
in the lap with Gerry sev-
eral times. It's not the first
incident. And what I've
learned is, you need to
slow down, dude. Try to do
one thing at a time. Driv-
ing, eating, talking on the
cell phone? Yeah, I have a
dent in my car, too. You
need to slow down.

Lazy dolphins
I guess the noted liberal
columnist, Carl Hiaasen, is
a closet Republican after
all. Complaining that dol-
phins were hurt in boating
accidents, he says be-
cause of human interfer-
ence dolphins were trained
to be lazy, waiting for
handouts from people, and
mama dolphins taught
their young not to hunt but
to wait for human welfare.
He recognizes that dol-
phins are doomed to a fu-
ture of "begging, sloth and
worse." Apparently Hi-
aasen's conservative val-
ues are good enough for
animals but not good
enough for people.

Born loser
Wow, after reading the
comics this morning (Aug.
16), I realized I am an 81-
year-old "born loser."

Hot-air
hurricane
Congratulations to Hurri-
cane Isaac for being the
second-largest collection
of hot air headed to
Tampa.

Marvelous
march
What a great day it was
in Inverness and America
today (Jan. 16). I went to go
biking out on the Rails to
Trails this morning and as I
pulled up to the Rails to
Trails at the caboose, there
was a Martin Luther King
March being led by Doug
Alexander, Pastor Doug
Alexander, with a bunch of
people walking in the Lib-
erty Park. Instead of riding
today, you know what I did?
I stopped and I listened to
his MLK speech along with
the others who were
speaking. They did a won-
derful job. The city of Inver-
ness did a wonderful job.
It's great to see that 40
years later, we can all
stand side by side, wel-
come peace and equality,
and embrace each other in
caring thoughts. Good job,
Doug Alexander. Good job,
city of Inverness. And great
job to America for support-
ing that dream of Martin
Luther King from 40 years
ago.

Where are
the flags?
As a Vietnam vet, I drive
around my neighborhood
on the Fourth of July to see
the Americans that honor
the flag and the country
and it's very disappointing.
Go to town at the fireworks
tent and watch people with
cell phones and cigarettes
buy $200 to $300 of fire-
works, but they can't afford
a flag. If they wanted to see


fireworks, they should have
enlisted in the military dur-
ing the Vietnam crisis.

Only in America
As I was walking down
our street the other day, I
noticed the (food company)
truck. We used to get food
from them but being on a
fixed income, as a lot of
people are, we had to stop.
Great food, but expensive. I
did, however, see a sign on
the truck that they take
food stamps or food assis-
tance, whatever they're
called now. This picture is
just not clear and, yes, I
do wear glasses. You can
buy food from (the com-
pany) with food assistance
stamps, but they can't use
the assistance to buy toilet
paper, washing soap, etc.
No wonder the government
is broke. Only in America.
Maybe we should all apply
for assistance. Something
is very wrong.


God Bless

America


going to have to accommo-
date those folks until they
manage to learn English,
which many of our ances-
tors took several genera-
tions to do. That's all.

Borrow
and spend
The U.S. government
borrows $1 out of every $1
it spends.

Nothing to fear
If immigrants have taken
the necessary steps to be-
come legal, why do they
fear being checked out?


No government Medicare


needed
I think we would be bet-
ter in this country with no
government whatsoever
than the government we
have.

Learn English
If we are really all Ameri-
cans, why is it that some
people think that some-
where in our wonderful
Constitution it says that you
can only vote, even if you
are a U.S. citizen, if you
can read and speak Eng-
lish? Well, I think that we're


program idea
Here's the new Medicare
program proposed: Let's
say you're a sick senior citi-
zen who isn't rolling in
oceans of cash. The gov-
ernment then tells you
there's no nursing home
available for you, so what
do you do? The new
Medicare plan gives any-
one 65 years or older a gun
and four bullets. We sug-
gest you discharge the
loaded gun in the air four
times. Of course, this
means you will most likely
be sent to prison where


you will get three meals a
day, a roof over your head,
central heat and air condi-
tioning and all the health
care you need. Need new
teeth? No problem. New
glasses? Don't sweat it.
Need a hip, knees, kidney,
lungs or heart? They're all
covered. As an added
bonus, your kids can come
and visit you as often as
they do now. And who's
going to be paying for all of
this? It's the same govern-
ment that just told you they
cannot afford for you to go
into a home.

Hunger games
Our kids, along with
thousands of others, have
just seen the movie,
"Hunger Games," and they
asked us if such a thing
could really happen here,
where our constitutional re-
public has been replaced
by a group of leftwing ruth-
less elitists who select a
group of young people to
fight to death in a huge
arena. We explained to
them that the movie is a
Hollywood prediction of the
future of our country if
Obama is elected to his
second term. They are now
seriously interested in the
election process.


Freedom
of religion
To the person that says
they are a Christian, not
American: Do you realize
how many countries will not
let you be a Christian and
how lucky you are to be in
America? And didn't you
somewhere growing up
ever learn that God helps
those that help them-
selves?


BEST OF SOUND OFF


Bipartisan Jesus Under God


In regards to "Thankful
Republican" in the Sound
Off on March 17: Someone
should inform her that a lot
of Democrats believe in
Jesus, too, and Jesus was
not a Republican.

Political
hallmark
The hallmark of an effec-
tive politician: One who can
look you straight in the eye,
tell you a blatant lie and
make you believe it.

Old habits
die hard
Is anyone old enough to
remember when the words
"under God" were inserted
into the Pledge of Alle-
giance? It was 1954 and
the Knights of Columbus
were instrumental in doing
that. When we were going
to school, we said the
Pledge of Allegiance every
day and those words were
not in it. I like the words,
but after all these years, it's
hard to remember to say


Concerning the article,
"Old habits," in Sound Off
April 6. It's not hard for me
to remember the words
"under God" in the Pledge
of Allegiance. After all, God
did create this nation.

What's wrong
What's wrong with the
United States of America?
Well, let me respond to
you. It was a mistake when
business and employees
allowed unions to go too far
in demanding higher
wages, health care, work-
ing conditions. The more
they were given, the more
they wanted 'til business
went overseas for cheap
labor. Getting too much
help free is as bad, if not
worse, than no help at all.
You were given a mind to

Too much Tiger
I can't believe it took 'til
Jan. 4 four days into the
new year to get Tiger
Woods' picture in the
paper. There's so many
deserving golfers out
there, but you have to use
him.

Young stud
Watching the NFL play-
offs yesterday, it was kind
of enjoyable to watch and
see the Denver Broncos
with Tebow win that game.
But I think Tebow better
stop and think about the
fact that he's a young stud
at this time and the reck-
less way he's playing, he is
going to suffer. And he
doesn't have to look too far
around him to see other
quarterbacks that have
played a little bit more cau-
tiously than what he's
doing. I hope for his own
safety, he thinks about this.

Praying for
Patriots
I'm going to get down on
my knees, going to put my
fist on my forehead and
I'm going to thank my God.
Thank you, Lord, for hav-
ing the New England Patri-
ots whoop the Denver
Broncos. Bring all this
Tebow crap to an end. Just
because he gets down on
his knees and prays to you
doesn't mean that the rest
of us have to put up with
all this stuff. Thanks, New
England Patriots and say
hallelujah, Lord. Say
hallelujah.


Sick of Tebow
So Jets coach Rex Ryan
says that there's no ques-
tion Mark Sanchez will be
New York's starting quar-
terback this season while
the recently acquired Tim
Tebow will be his backup.
But who's in the picture?
Tim Tebow. God, I'm so
sick of Tim Tebow.

Lookalikes
It sure would be a big
help if the Tampa Bay
Rays would put their num-
ber on the front of their
shirts. One beard looks
just like another. You can't
tell them apart.

R-E-S-P-E-C-T
I am one person who is
certainly tired of looking at
basically all our male ath-
letes in this country. With
the money they're making,
the appearance they pres-
ent is pretty sad and
sometimes their actions
aren't much better. I wish
they'd clean up their act
and look like professional
people that we could ex-
pect to have a little more
respect for them.

Boohoo
Gee whiz. Now we have
Tiger Woods crying about
soft beds. I know there are
other players more deserv-
ing and not crying (that) it
hurt all day. Boohoo.

Horrible halftime
I think it's well beyond
time the Super Bowl went

ble, you lose sight of the
fact that it's a football
game. You want to see
these people, go to their

Saturday, Sept. 8, I at-


tended the game of Nature
Coast Flag Football. I have
to say the young players
on the field were having a
great time. However, some
adults in the stands were
acting like a bunch of don-
keys. What an embarrass-
ment it is to the kids
playing for their parents
making fools of them-
selves. Also, the bad lan-
guage needs to be
addressed. Kick them off

vision again. What a way
to start a football season.
But what if they did the
same thing to the Rays or
any other sports? We
wouldn't be able to see
anything. Football's proba-
bly the most expensive
ticket you could buy. So I
think that they should tele-
vise football regardless of
how many people's in the
stadium. The Rays played
the Yankees and there was
only 14,000 people in the
stadium. That's discrimina-
tion against baseball and
football and any other
sport.

Why cheer?
Why support and cheer
for the home football team
and the game? We, the eld-
erly, who maybe won't drive
to the game (because of)
traffic or driving in the dark
and, most of all, can't afford
a ticket on limited income -
also will not be able to view
it on TV, either.

Whoa, Busch!
You know, I don't care if
you like him or not, that
Kyle Busch can drive. Did
you see the Bud Shootout?
Whoa!

Bad Belichick
The best thing about the
Giants beating the Patriots
is that Bill Belichick, the
coach of the Patriots, used
to be the defensive coach
for the Giants and he hasn't
figured out a way to beat
the Giants yet. He lost to
them in two Super Bowls

it hurts him bad just looking
at the picture and his face
at the end of the game.

Be a big girl
I really don't know who
Danica Patrick thinks she
is. She wins the pole and in
racing they bump and hit.
So she gets hit from behind
and starts screaming and
yelling. And there's ways
that maybe she could have
avoided all the damage she
had. But I think because
she's racing and she's a
girl, everybody's supposed
to stay out of her way and
let her do her thing. She's
got to learn if she wants to
run with the big boys, she's
got to play the big boys'
game.

Play by the rules
I just have a few thoughts
on the New Orleans bounty
situation. No. 1, the NFL,
the National Football
League, has all football
leagues and teams that
abide by rules of the game
and there are rules that in-
dicate methods in which
you are able to block a
man, methods on how you
are to tackle a man, but
there is none there that
says you cannot use force
in doing so. And to me, the
New Orleans Saints and
any other team is playing
the game to the top of their
ability, abiding by the rules.

Crazy 'Coach'
I'm surprised they don't
have a pictorial in any of
the entertainment maga-
zines that would pick the
10 worst comedians to be
in the last 10 years. I'm
watching this old series of
"Coach," which was a
funny show to watch. But
Jerry Van Dyke is, I mean,
he's not even funny. It's pa-
thetic what he's trying to
do. And I'm sure that's the
way the role is written, but
I can see why he never
made it big anywhere. His
brother Dick was obviously
once very successful in
show business and has
gone on. But Jerry just, I
don't know, and in fact it's
almost getting pathetic to
watch the show because I
can't picture anybody that
would write a part that stu-
pid for anybody, especially
he's supposed to be a foot-
ball coach.

OWN quality
Wow, my stomach
turned when I read your
article about "Oprah's
OWN TV programming
needs" that is, according
to Robert Thompson of
Syracuse University. He
says it doesn't seem she's
willing to put the kinds of
shows on that they need.
And what they need is
"Jersey Shore," "Real
Housewives"? Is he in-
sane? Who needs more of
that?...No thanks. To me,
OWN equals quality
shows. No, I don't watch it
all the time, but I do know
where to go for quality


shows besides PBS.
There's a lot of choices out
there and OWN should be
one of the choices. More
people should watch OWN
for quality programs.

Hooray for Rush
For the person who
called in about wanting
Rush Limbaugh off the
radio airwaves: He's the
only person out there on
the radio who's speaking
the truth these days. He
needs to be on more sta-
tions. Hooray for Rush
Limbaugh, who speaks for
most of us.

'RidicuList' cat
Tonight CNN had its
usual 10-minute portion of
the show "The RidicuList."
On it was a film of a gin-
ger-colored cat drinking
water out of a glass. It was
then stated that 15 years
ago there was an election
for mayor in a town in
Alaska. The cat's name
was written in a number of
times as a nominee. He
won the election and has
been in office for 15 years.
He's obviously intelligent,
handsome and has sex
appeal. Sex appeal had a
great amount to do with
women voting for him.

Prisoner
to bad TV
I've been laid up for
about three weeks with
some foot surgery, so I'm
kind of immobile so I
spend more time than
usual watching television.


That's


,WEntertainment


And what's really sad in
this world is how many
programs are geared to-
ward violence, crime,
shooting, death. There's no
love or laughter anymore.
It's just women that have
got to be half naked run-
ning around. And then we
wonder why our children
today do the things they
do, why they get onto
drugs and stuff. What moti-
vation is there in them in
this world? Especially in
this country when they're
growing up as young chil-
dren who look forward to
some moral ethic value of
their life. This TV is trash
and that's all we're doing is
teaching people trash. I
wish something would be
done about it because the
networks are really mess-
ing everybody up and it's
so sad if this is what peo-
ple have to watch for en-
tertainment.

Go see 'Argo'
"Argo" is the best movie I
have seen in years. It is
the story of the Iranians
storming of the U.S. Em-
bassy in Iran in 1979. They
captured 66 embassy em-
ployees who were held for
444 days before their re-
lease. Six employees es-


caped and were harbored
by the Canadian ambassa-
dor in his home. Ben Af-
fleck, who produced this
film, plays the U.S. govern-
ment agent who was sent
to rescue the six hiding
with the Canadians. It is a
true story and has you on
the edge of your seat. It is
such fun to see the '70s
again. Everyone smokes
and drinks and drives a
huge car. Much of the
footage is actual footage
from the time. It is a great
movie for men and women.
Don't miss this extraordi-
nary film.

Uncensored
Wednesday, March 28's
Hot Corner regarding
Rush Limbaugh: It's amaz-
ing how little people actu-
ally know when they call in
to complain about these
things. Bill Maher is not
censored because he is on
HBO, a pay-to-watch net-
work. and Howard Stern is
uncensored because he is
on satellite radio, also un-
censored. You almost must
pay to listen to him. So and
besides that, Howard
Stern is about the least
likely controversial political
voice on the radio. So it
won't surprise me when


Rush does lose all of his
sponsors, that somebody
will probably give him a
contract on satellite radio.

'Restaurant
Stakeout'
I think that restaurant
owners, managers,
servers and bartenders
would learn a lot by watch-
ing "Restaurant Stakeout"
on the Food Network
Wednesday at 10 o'clock.
Record it if you can't watch
it at that time. It has taught
me just what everyone
should or should not be
doing and how a restau-
rant should be effectively
run.

Bell hell
This is about noise pollu-
tion for about the last
month now I've wondered
if anyone else has noticed
the bell sound on the
bloodsucker commercial.
Just before the number,
this bell sound is on and
it's irritating. It would wake
the dead. I've been read-
ing the paper, drinking cof-
fee and it's still startles me.
I think the FCC passed a
law where they can't raise
the volume on commer-
cials. This bell sound is irri-
tating. I wonder if anybody
else has noticed this.

Spurning Stern
I see on the news where
the program "America's
Got Talent" has hired
Howard Stern to be on the
show. Well, I've got news
for them: I wouldn't watch
anything that he's on. He
could go into a monastery
to become a monk and his
mouth would still be too
filthy for me to listen to. I
would rather read a book
or do crossword puzzles
rather than watch that.

Crazy

I know that if anybody
besides myself saw the
cartoon in the Chronicle
the other day about the
guy pointing in his com-
mercial where he stuck his
finger out of the TV, you
couldn't help but think of
the car salesmen, siding,
what else? Everybody's
got to wave their arm and

accomplish?

Prattle battle
Fox television committed
an unconscionable blunder
when they cut off a news
clip of the aircraft carrier
berthed in New York Har-

5,000 servicemen would
have much preferred to
see and hear about these
men and women serving

It's interesting, every
time I pick up the paper I
see someone who bowls
at Parkview Lanes bowls
some very high scores. His
last one was 803 and
that's excellent. And the

Floppy paper
I wish the Times and the
Chronicle would go back to
their old way of making the
newspapers wide and not
long. They're so darn long
that when you go to read,
they flop over and cover
your hands and you can't
see what you are reading. I
have never been so un-
comfortable in my life read-
ing a paper. Please go back
to what it was. It wasn't bro-
ken, it didn't need fixing
and you guys fixed it real
bad.

Need my glasses
Well, I thought it was my
glasses and I went and got
another pair of glasses. I
even had my husband look
at it. It's the paper. The pic-
tures are fuzzy, the writing
is fuzzy. It's not my glasses;
it's just the whole format
they're printing. The words
are fuzzy, pictures are
fuzzy. I thought you spent a
lot of money getting a new
printing press or whatever.
You need to rethink it. Your
pictures are all fuzzy on the
front page. It's Jan. 3.

Timesaver
I don't know about you
guys, but this new paper
that the Chronicle is using
is saving me a heck of a lot
of time. I can read both
sides at the same time.

Replace comic
I have called Sound Off
once before about the
comic strip "Kit 'N' Carlyle,"


and was not in Sound Off.
There is nothing funny
about it. So many comic
strips could take its place.
How about it?

Litter bags
I was out doing my semi-
annual litter pick-up today
in my neighborhood and it
is really quite comical the
things that you see when
you do that. One of the
things, however, I was won-
dering is, probably the most
prevalent form of litter that I
find are the bags, the
sleeves, the plastic sleeves
that you wrap the papers,
the Citrus Chronicle, in.
And I was just wondering,
just curious if there's any-
thing, any other form of
maybe something that ani-
mals could eat or some-
thing that's biodegradable.
The plastic just seems to
lay around and make things
look ugly.

Get real, Gerry
After reading Gerry Mulli-
gan's article, "Educate and
vote," I would like to know if
there is someone from the
tea party, the Reagan party
or the conservative party
that would like to buy our
well-kept, furnished dou-
blewide with 2-1/2 acres of
natural woods in a se-
cluded area. My wife and I
have decided we don't be-
long here, even after 11
years and spending thou-
sands of dollars. One rea-
son is your politics are one
party and you have to be-
long just to live here. I could
say more, but it would take


a whole page. So can you
help us out so we can
move back to our home
state where we can live in
reality?

forget the Republican Na-

Poor grammar
On Aug. 1, the "Educa-
tion" part of the Citrus
County Chronicle, it says
here, "Playing perfect." It
has a picture of a man play-
ing a euphonium and it
says here, "Playing perfect,"
and the grammar should


and call it "Comedy Calls."
They sure keep me
laughing.

Jumbo-size
Jumble
I play the Jumble puzzle
in the paper every day in
the daily paper and it's be-
come much more difficult
since it's been squeezed in


with the new lineup for the
TV shows. I wonder if
there's some way they can
move it into another section
and put it back to its regular
size. It's a difficult puzzle,
but it's even much more dif-
ficult now because it's really
hard to read.

Devil's in
the details
The Community Calen-
dar in Thursday's Pioneer
on Aug. 9 mentions two
events going on in Septem-
ber at the National Armory
in Crystal River but gives
no time for when they open.
Is it 9 a.m., 10 a.m., what?
I'd hate to drive all the way
over there and then have to
sit there for an hour be-
cause I'm too early. Please
get the time for these type
of events when you list
them in the paper. Getting
all the details is what
makes a good reporter.

Educate
newcomers
I want to thank Jewel
Lamb for the excellent arti-
cle she has in today's Sun-
day (Jan. 8) paper. We
don't need big government
here. We need education to
the people that are moving
here from areas that they
did not live around water or
multi-populated areas. Be a
good neighbor. Train these
people. Educate them in
what it means to be around
our wonderful Citrus
County with our rivers, our
springs and our manatees.
Please, we can do it our-
selves. Just help educate
your incoming neighbors.

Whose
water is it?
Those people (who) live
around King's Bay, that's
their water. That's not yours
or mine. That's their water
and with their expensive
land and houses, they'll
handle it. They do not want
you on the water. They
don't really care anything
about the manatees except
the notoriety they get. If
you want to watch some-
thing, go fish there and get
right up near one of the
houses and they'll come
right out and watch you.
That's their water and
they're not going to give it
up.

Paradise lost
Someone in Levy County
doesn't mind giving up a lit-
tle piece of paradise for


jobs. Just look around you
and see how much of para-
dise has already been lost
here in Florida and how
much is left. Just like the
fish when it's gone, it's
gone. I remember the days
when there were limited
jobs in this country and we
walked, rode boxcars, the
rods, horse-drawn wagons
or whatever it took to find a
job. Now if you can't find a
job in your own back yard,
you cry about it.

We're not alone
In a book titled, "A Re-
enchanted World," I read
that scuba diver Harvey
Barnett found a wounded,
dying manatee and put a
monument up in King's Bay
that reads: "Life must be-
come more than the wants
and needs of humans. We
are not on this earth alone."

Keep lakes full
Don't blame Mother Na-
ture for our low lake levels.
The lakes were being
drained way before the

Humans
hurt habitats
The person complaining
of the rats, snakes and
moles destroying his lawn
is confused, to say the
least. Rats, snakes and
moles do not destroy a
lawn.You simply like to
complain. Their habitat is
destroyed by construction
and fire and you wonder
why they are on your lawn.
Being born a human does
not give us the right to de-
stroy all lesser forms of life
on this planet. There is a
reason for all of us being
here.

Don't litter
Once a week, right be-
fore my psychiatrist's ap-
pointment, I walk three
miles in my neighborhood
and pick up all the trash. I
don't have to bring a Publix
plastic bag with me be-
cause there's always plenty
available blowing around. I
fill two to three bags in an
hour with cans, bottles, Big
Gulp cups, Taco Bell wrap-
pers and Styrofoam con-
tainers. If I see a business
truck throw some litter out
the window, I call that busi-
ness and tell them their
employee littered, disre-
spected my neighborhood,
and I will never utilize their
service. Then I go lay on
my shrink's couch and
whine about all the incon-
siderate litterbugs in this
county. I encourage more
crazy people to do the
same.

Need crafts
I am sorry that Sears is
closing. It is a shame. The
mall manager should have
brought in a Hobby Lobby,
Michael's or Joanne's
Fabric to bring people into
the mall.You can't even
buy a spool of thread or a
pack of needles or knitting
supplies unless you go to
Walmart in Inverness or
Homosassa. No wonder
Walmart has surged
ahead. I myself don't want
to travel 10-plus miles to
get a spool of thread
(with) the price of gas.

Stores, not
shooters
We don't need a shoot-
ing range. We need new
stores. We need a Target
and Jo-Ann's and Target.
We have to go out of town
to do our shopping. That's
ridiculous.

Need new mall
To the "Look before you
move": We have been liv-
ing in Citrus County for 14
years. And, yes, we are
happy to have a nice
Lowe's, Walmart, Bealls,
Ruby Tuesday and now
Olive Garden. We could
use a more centrally lo-
cated new mall with some
major companies like JC
Penney, Sears, Kohls, hh-
gregg, Dick's Sporting
Goods, Bath and Body
Works. These are the
stores we all travel to and
spend our money. Why not
here?


Bring in Target
If I could speak to the
people that are in charge
of getting new business in
that mall, I would tell
them the quickest way to
get a lot of traffic in that
mall would be to put in
there a Target store. Many
people in this county are
wishing for a Target store
and I can guarantee that
would bring activity to
that mall. I hope they'll try
for a Target.

Harness racing
To increase the devel-
opment of Citrus County,
why don't they build a
harness racetrack in Cit-
rus County? There is so
much land available and
there are so many horses
available and it would cre-
ate jobs and, I think, bring
in revenue for Citrus
County. We certainly
could use a little input of
financial help. I think a
harness track would be a
wonderful idea.

Bring back
Checkers
Please bring Checkers
back to Crystal River or
else take the ads or the
commercials off of TV. It's
pure torture seeing that
wonderful food and we
can't get it.



Ditto on "Come back,
Checkers," from May 3.
We wish it would come


back, too. We love their
fries, we love their onion
rings. Saw the show on
"Undercover Boss" a
month or two ago. I
emailed them, never got a
response. We would love
to have it back.

just a suggestion.

Mr. Joe Meek: Go, go,

Walmarts and enjoy it, but
we hate having to go to

Somebody in Sound Off
said we need a Target. We
sure do need a Target
store here. We have
enough Wal-Mart ware-

want something we can
browse and enjoy
shopping in.

Beach needed
I made the request for
sidewalks and a beach for
Homosassa. I know it's
the Nature Coast. We
don't need Clearwater
Beach. That's a gulf beach
anyway. Though, so is
Fort Island. We need one
like Crystal River Nature
Coast's Hunter Springs.
People, even if they didn't
own a boat, could use it in
warm weather. Manatees
could use it in the winter.


CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE

If we had sidewalks, lo-
cals and visitors could
walk or bike to it. That's
environmentally friendly.
Many decades ago, when
this truly was a nature
coast, there were places
where people in
Homosassa could go
swimming.

Go for
groceries
I would like to know why
we keep getting Dollar
Stores. We're getting an
other one. Floral City's too
small for a grocery store,
according to what I hear,
but not all these Dollar
Stores. What we need is a
much-needed grocery
store such as an IGA or
any kind of a grocery
store.

Sidewalks
needed
I'm calling in for Old Ho-
mosassa. We need more
sidewalks down there and
also a nice park for the
kids to play and enjoy.

Want my Thai
This is regarding today's
restaurant article. It's won-
derful that all these places
are opening all dedicated
to American food. Please,
if somebody's out there,
we have space for a good
Thai food restaurant...
Please, somebody open

I would like to compli-

I'm calling in regards to

Super Sound Off
Thank you for the collec-
tion of Sound Offs that you
had in the certain section
in December. I really en-
joyed it. I have learned a
lot from that and I've often
wondered what people
think about other things.


Reading a
pleasure
Monday, March 12, 1
read in the Chronicle and
you had a full page of
Sound Off. To me that's
the best part of the Chron-
icle. I guess you're playing
catch-up. I called in a
Sound Off in January and
February. I didn't see any-
thing in it, probably be-
cause I said something
negative about the county,
which you never print. But
anyway, it was a pleasure
reading the Chronicle. I
hope you continue to do
that have a full page on
Monday.

Pays to
advertise
As far as "Something in
the water" goes, it just
goes to prove that adver-
tising in the Chronicle
works.

Good laugh
It's Sunday morning

Gerry Mulligan's article on

joyed that, I'm neither a

But I do like Gov. Scott and
it's nice to see that we

countable for what they do.
I also wanted to thank the

no negative this morning,
just thank you for my

I enjoy them and I'm sure
that other people do, too.
I believe that he knows it
all. So keep them coming

I really enjoy, the reason I
take the paper. So let's

Smack deserved
I just finished reading
about the man who was
arrested for hitting a lady
in the supermarket with
his food carriage. He
should have hit her in the
back of the ankles with it
while she was standing in
line. Then he could have
said, "Oops, sorry." Any-
one that gets in those
lines, those express lines,
with more items than
they're supposed to have
deserves to get a good
smack in the butt or a
smack in the ankles. I
hope he gets off. I hope
the judge tells the lady, "If
you hadn't done this, this
wouldn't have happened."

Redneck game
It looks like the latest
redneck game here in
Hernando is seeing how
many beer bottles you can
break on the bicycle trail
that runs along (County
Road) 486. Unfortunately,
people have been break-
ing bottles out there for
the last couple weeks. It's
sad and nobody cleans
them up unless we volun-
teer, because the trail is
not swept by the county.

Scary
commissioners


Have I missed some re-
porting in the Chronicle
lately? Apparently, Mr.
Damato and Mr. Kitchen
are now people you must
be afraid of being in close
proximity to? I'm not quite
sure what Ms. (Christo-


pher-)McPheeters is afraid
of. I've seen the gentle-
men many, many times at
council meetings and
commission board meet-
ings, Crystal River City
Council meetings. I've
never once been afraid for
my safety, never once
seen these gentleman act
in any way that was offen-
sive to anyone. Can some-
one please explain this
woman's problem?

Behind
the times
In reference to the "Meth
labs on the rise": Citrus
County is way behind the
times because it's been 10
years or more since the
meth labs have been on
the rise. It's more or less
a, I don't know I guess
can't describe the word
I'm looking for but Citrus
County is way behind.

Shop Citrus
I've lived in Citrus

and I've always believed in

nessman, such as carpet
and upholstery cleaning,
even plumbers... I always
support the small-busi-
nessman.

selfish goodness. God

Employee
recognition
I was very impressed
with Nick Nicholas Ford of
Crystal River recognizing
all their staff and every de-
partment. It shows me that
he really appreciates them
and is very proud of them.
Some businesses, the
longer you work there, the
less they appreciate you.
But not Nick Nicholas
Ford, evidently.

Tip accordingly
I would like to comment
on the subject of tipping
the waitress. I believe fully
that if you go to a restau-
rant and you get excellent
service, they keep your
drinks refilled, they ask if


you need anything, they
bring things to you
promptly, because when
you're dining in a restau-
rant, you're not able to get
up and get your own
drinks. You're not able to
get up and get your own
condiments. So I believe if
you're taken care of to the
capacity of all your needs
are being met and your
drinks are staying filled, I
believe in tipping 20 per-
cent. I believe in tipping
better if you have a wait-
ress or waiter that's going
above and beyond to see
that your needs are met. I
believe they deserve bet-
ter. If they do not, then I
believe they deserve a
maximum of 10 percent
because if they're not
doing their job, they don't


deserve a tip. I have been
a waitress in a restaurant
in this county, Citrus
County, where the wait-
ress or waiter has had an
attitude about doing their
job or they treat you, as
the customer, like you
were an inconvenience for
being overly needy or
overly thirsty. They have
an attitude about getting
things. In those cases, I
don't believe they deserve
5 percent because their
job is called a server. Their
job is called a waiter. And
again, at a restaurant,
you're not able to get up
and get what you need.
That's their job and if they
don't do it, if they're not
performing it, if they're
talking or running around
visiting other tables and
treating you like you're
second class, then you tip
them accordingly.

Gain
without pain
All registered voters
should read "Fact check:
Promising gain without
pain" in Monday's Chronicle
(Jan. 9). These are the
choice of characters we
have for president? Good
gosh. Voters need lots of
help.

Pathetically
funny
I find it amusing that Re-
publicans say President
Obama is against the
wealthy and those who
achieve great things, while
at the same time the Re-
publicans criticize Mitt
Romney for being wealthy
and achieving success. If
they weren't so pathetic, it
would really be funny.

God help us
I wonder how many peo-
ple will think like I think. If
this little president we've
got now is as arrogant as I
think he is, can you even
imagine what he would be
like if we, God help us, re-
elected that man?

Remember
Romney
This is a message for the
seniors of Florida. Seniors
beware. Be very careful
who you vote for in this pri-
mary. Remember, Gov.
Romney, out of all the can-
didates, is the only one who
actually implemented an
Obamacare-style medical

care in the state of Massa-
chusetts. Gingrich and the
other candidates may have
been for an individual man-
date, but they never actu-
ally followed through on it,
whereas Gov. Romney has.
If the seniors are worried
about Medicare and Medi-
caid, do not vote Romney
in. With his history of flip-
flopping on issues, he may
very well get in office but
not get rid of Obamacare.

Over 21
Ron Paul- the logical
reason for the voting age to
be a more mature 21.

Just dumb
I have a little problem.
When Clinton was presi-
dent of the United States,
when he left the office, he
left a surplus. When Presi-
dent Bush was elected, in
four years the surplus was
gone, people lost their jobs,
the stock market went
down. When he got out of
office, the nation was
broke, with the war almost
$1 trillion. But yet I don't un-
derstand one thing: The
same people are going to
elect Republicans in office.
This is just dumb. God help
us. This is dumb.

Take hold
I just want to remind
everybody that we all know
that this is an election year
and I think the citizens of
the United States need to
take hold of spending and
what's going on. And I think
we need to demand an

itemized statement or a
statement letting us know
exactly where our tax
money is going, whether it's
foreign aid or ridiculous re-
search or whatever. We
need to know where our tax
dollars are going so we can
control and we need to vote
on whether to send money
to foreign aid or not. But we
need to know where our tax
dollars are going. So the
government needs to let us
know where our dollars are
going and what's going to
foreign aid, what's going to
the military, what's going for
foolish spending, and we
need to know exactly. So
take hold and remember
when you vote.


ments. We need a presi-
dent who does more than
play golf and take luxury
vacations with our tax
dollars.

Root for
Romney
Rick Santorum's descrip-
tion of former President
Carter is not accurate. Newt
Gingrich is a blowhard, an
excellent speaker and an
opportunist. Ron Paul is a
physician, like myself. He's
a nice guy, but I don't think
he's electable. Mitt Romney
is a good family man, he's
honest, he's made his
money the old-fashioned
way he worked for it.

We don't need someone

need one to manage our

Paul is
the answer
After watching the de-
bates, it is clear that three
candidates are in favor of
bombing Iran. One candi-
date does not want to see
us bomb Iran. We have
been in many wars and
they have drained our re-
sources to the point where
we are almost bankrupt
and we still can't see what
needs to be done. Ron Paul
will lead us out of this mess.
Ron Paul does not want us
to waste our money in that
cesspool in the Middle
East. He would like to
spend money on the United
States and their citizens. He
would like to bring us back
to the gold standard. He
doesn't want to play world
policeman. Ron Paul is the
answer for America today.

Need new blood
As the politicians are
beating one another up, let
us remember that Citrus
County is on the last leg.
There is no work, and the
inside politicians that were
in politics in the '70s and
the '80s cannot run this
country. They are totally too
old. We need new, young
blood. Don't look at the
man's religion. Look at
what he had done, pros-
perity, how many people he
put to work and are still
working.

Gang leaders
It's really sad but the Re-
publican politicians are
coming across like hood-
lums belonging to a gang.

Lousy debate
I'm calling in reference to
the Republican debate last
night. I thought NBC did
the lousiest job of a debate
ever in recording history. I
mean I wonder how many
other people think that way.
I don't know. Just with all
the problems in the world,
they're going back 20 years
into somebody's personal
life.


BEST OF SOUND OFF






CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE

State of illusion
Last night we heard the
"State of Illusion," which
was supposed to be the
State of the Union, by Mr.
Obama. He promised a
whole lot of things and a
whole lot of changes like he
did when he came into of-
fice. He just worked a year
and a half on this health
program that nobody
wanted while the country
suffered, doing nothing
about the real problems
that we had on hand. I
hope people don't believe
his rhetoric again. We need
a change of America to
bring us back from the so-
cialistic policies that he's
trying to put in place and
have government run every
part of our lives.

Lord help us
Gingrich, Romney, Paul,
Santorum, and, lastly,
Obama for president? May
the good Lord watch over
us. We do need help.

Eating their
young
It's a pity that the Repub-
licans' campaign advertise-
ments can't be zoomed into
Republican-only homes.
The rest of us are sick and
tired of watching the Re-
publicans eat their young.

Nothing to say
For weeks I've been lis-
tening to Republicans de-
bate on how they're going
to throw Obama out of of-
fice, take over and run the
place for the millionaires


BEST OF SOUND OFF


and for the special few. I
was so glad last night to
hear our president speak
as a real president should,
challenging the nation, giv-
ing constructive ideas. I
think it was very good for
the nation to hear a real
president after listening to
all these pretenders banter-
ing back and forth and not
having a whole lot to say.

Something
smells
Has anyone heard any-
thing in these Republican
debates (about) what the
candidates' plans are for
turning this economy
around so decent, hard-
working people have jobs
and a salary that can pro-
vide a living without going
into debt to survive? All
they're doing is garbage
talk and every one of them
fails the smell test.

Bad example
Remember how we
taught our children not to lie
and if you can't say nothing
nice about somebody, don't
say anything at all? Our
presidential candidates are
sure setting a good exam-
ple, especially for the
young people.

Nothing
good to say
When I was young, I was
taught if you didn't have
something nice to say
about somebody, you
shouldn't say anything at
all. Bearing that in mind, I
don't have anything to say

They're only interested in

the best idea and/or plan
I've heard since they got rid
of Jimmy Carter.

the name of his broker that
controls his blind trust,
we also can become
millionaires.

he's going to choose for
vice president because he
can vet them all. He can vet
20 of them.

Stormy
convention
These politicians who
chose Florida for their con-
vention in August sure
weren't thinking very much.
Everybody knows that this
is hurricane season for the
South and yet they still
chose it. All's I can say is,
they might be a brain with
some things, but when it


comes to common sense,
they haven't got any.

GOP flip-flops
When Clint Eastwood
made a commercial for
Chrysler which was shown
on Super Bowl Sunday, the
Republicans demonized
him, saying it was a blatant
ad for President Obama.
Now all of a sudden he's
the darling of the Republi-
can Party. Talk about flip-
flop.

Get in the game
Regarding the online poll,
"Do you watch the national
conventions on television?"
Fifty-five percent of the re-
spondents said no. Get
your head in the game be-
fore it's too late.

Time to vote
In the last presidential
election, out of 206 million
eligible voters, only 75 mil-
lion didn't vote or take the
time to vote. Elections are
sometimes won by tiny
margins. Find the time
somehow and get out and
vote in November.

Sweet freedom
I can't wait until Election
Day when I can get my
freedom; freedom from po-
litical commercials.

Makes no sense
Candidates should use
their own money. It seems
like every day in the paper
we read about a tragedy to
a family due to today's
economy. Families are


Friday, December 28, 2012 G15
struggling to make ends
meet and then you read
about people paying
$20,000 or $40,000 a plate
(for) a donation for a candi-
date, raising millions of dol-
lars. How does this make
any sense when people are
hungry and homeless?

Comical
comments
It's amazing to read
some of the comments
made in Sound Off espe-
cially about the upcoming
presidential election. It
should almost be a comic
strip in the local Sunday
paper, how people just, if
something's said about one
party then they're looking at
some way to bash the other
party. Or why isn't this party
doing this or why isn't that
party doing that? It reminds
me of a bunch of kids play-
ing on the playground and
the one boy takes his ball
to go home if he doesn't
want to play anymore. Then
everybody's mad at him be-
cause he took his ball. I
don't understand the
thought process that peo-
ple have in making some of
the comments that they
make. It's almost, it's funny.
It's past the point of social
realism. It's just plain funny.

Stop calling
Democrats and Republi-
can parties: Stop calling my
cell phone where I have to
spend my dime to listen to
what you have to say. I
wouldn't vote for either one
of you. Leave my phone
alone.

Slippers for sale
For the lady looking for
closed-toe-and-heel slip-
pers: I saw them at Dollar
General on (County Road)
486 close to the entrance
of Citrus Hills. They're also
in most of the senior cata-
logs. I'm sure they're at
Bealls and other places,
but that's where I saw
them.

Preventing
forest fires
I read another Sound Off
where people are com-
plaining about the forest
being burnt and the
smoke. If they had both-
ered to have done a little
checking, a little thinking
and reading national news-
papers, they would know
this is done nationally. It is
to prevent large forest
fires. It's called a controlled
burn to clear the dead
brush out of the forest. It
has been proven that it will
help the forest. It is done
nationally. These people
have to stop thinking about
their own little world and
start thinking about the na-
tion and what people, en-
gineers a lot smarter than
them, and forest rangers
have come up with.

Not all
Americans
Here we go again. (A let-
ter to the editor writer) re-
peating the words of
George W. Bush, saying
that 3,000 Americans were
killed at or near the World
Trade Center that fateful


day 9/11/01. DNA and
other lab tests revealed
that citizens of at least 66
nations died there.

Spread the word
Voters, educate yourself.
Read the book "Throw
Them All Out," by Peter
Schweizer. This informs us
what our Congress has
done between 2003 and
2012. Spread the word.

True statement
In reading "Massacre si-
lenced" (page A10, Tues-
day, Sept. 11), my
husband in World War II
was an interpreter and he
spoke fluent German. (He)
said that when U.S. troops
were ready to enter Berlin,
his troops were ordered
three miles back to let the
Russians enter Berlin first,
which coincides with the
statement in the Associ-
ated Press that Roosevelt
deliberately backed our
troops back to give credit
to the Russians. That
needs to be further looked
into.

'V' for veterans
This is for all veterans:
Did you know that when
you renew your driver's li-
cense, you can have the
initial "V" on your license if
you take your DD214 with
you? My husband did not
know this. In order for him
to have the letter "V," he
had to return and pay a $2
fee. If he had returned on a
different day, he would
have had to pay $8. This is
an endorsement fee. If you


For Your

have it with you when you
renew your license, there
is no charge. So don't pass
up an opportunity to be
proud that you're a
veteran.


Croc correction
I just want to make a
correction on your article
about the crocs near the
nuke plant. The article
states that they are moni-
toring amphibians. Al-
though they are
amphibious, they are not
amphibians; they are croc-
odilians. Amphibians,
when young, have gills
and develop through a lar-
val or tadpole stage into
lung-breathing frogs and
salamanders.


Educate
yourself
For the benefit of Mr.
Patrick and other persons
too numerous to list,
please educate yourself
before calling Sound Off.
With regards to handi-
capped parking spaces
and a hang tag, you all
need to know that if you
have a handicapped li-
cense plate on your vehi-
cle, a hang-tag placard is
not required. Please don't


embarrass yourselves in
the future by calling atten-
tion to your ignorance.
And, by the way, all handi-
capped health issues are
not always visible. Please
educate yourself before
you open your mouth and
insert your foot.

Tax the reason
The reason for the high
price of gasoline in Califor-
nia is their 35-cents-a-gal-
lon tax.

It's legal
To the gentleman won-
dering about why the po-
lice didn't stop pickup
trucks with people in the
back: It's because it's legal
to have people in the back
of your pickup truck and
they don't need to be
buckled in or anything
else. The law has been on
the books for years be-
cause of the migrant situa-
tion here and all of the
farming activities that we
do. Have a good day.

Fake facts
Since this the second
time I've read a Sound Off
about reducing speed lim-
its to conserve fuel, I have
to comment. It reminds me


BEST OF SOUND OFF


of the same fake statistics
touted during the fake gas
shortages of the '70s. A lit-
tle car going 80 will use
less fuel than a big car or
truck going 55. The car de-
sign has a lot more to do
with fuel conservation than
speed. And where did the
estimate of "a billion bar-
rels of oil saved by going
slower" come from? Also,
30 percent of auto fatalities
attributed to speeding is a
false number. Speed as a
cause of accidents, even
in auto racing, is rare. Los-
ing control and running
into things are the major
causes of accidents.

Recognize
recipients
Page A6 of Wednesday,
Jan. 25's Chronicle, in the
AP article on veterans,
states, "Lawmakers also
honored two fallen Medal
of Honor winners." This is
not a contest. They are not
winners, nor is the Medal
of Honor awarded. These
brave servicemen and
women are recipients.
They receive the Medal of
Honor for their bravery.

Hydrant hues
Can someone please ex-
plain why fire hydrants are
painted different colors?
This is in reference to the
person who wrote the "Hue
clue" about hydrant hues.
He's incorrect. The reason
that there are so many dif-
ferent colors of hydrants is
not how much water pres-
sure is coming out of the
hydrant, but actually gallons
per minute of water. He
needs to go back and look
at his "Basic Firefighting Es-
sentials" book.
This is in response to
"Hydrant colors explained."
An increase in gallons per
minute out of a hydrant
would also make an in-
crease in water pressure.
Duh.

The easiest way to get rid

son that if they're a veteran,
they should go to the VA
clinic in Lecanto. I'm sure
that the VA would take care
of their dental problem.
I see your piece in the
paper that a man who was
a veteran and he wanted
dental help and he said he
was on Social Security and
didn't have any money and
he wants to know about the
dental help. Well, our
church association, the Na-
ture Coast Baptist Associa-
tion, at, let's see now,
726-7799 is the telephone
number. If he calls them
and, well, first of all, before
he calls them, he's got to go
to the health clinic there
across from Sweetbay in In-
verness if he lives in Inver-
ness. He goes there and
then when he gets the pa-
pers and he fills them out
and he holds onto them. He
needs to pick up paperwork
now. Then, the first week of
May, he takes it to the
health clinic at 936 (U.S.)
41 South, Inverness. In
June, they will do free den-
tal work via a mobile dental
clinic.


Ridding rodents
Does anybody have a
remedy for getting rodents


out of your car? I believe I
have some living in my car
and I can't seem to get
them out. They keep chew-
ing my wires. I've got moth-
balls and I've put traps, but I
believe they might be in the
air-conditioner ducts. If any-
body has any advice, that
would be great.
This is to the person
that's talking about rodent
infestation. It seems like
they have rodents in their
car. They're asking for a
remedy. I'd suggest looking
for some kind of droppings,
maybe rodent droppings on
the floor mats or in that
area. Also look for any torn
cotton or anything like that
where they might be mak-
ing bedding material. You
could also set one of those
insecticide bombs off in
your car. I know it's kind of
drastic, but I think it would
get in any cracks and
crevices and maybe chase
them out of there. That's the
best I can do for you. Good
luck.
To the person with the ro-
dent problem: Soak cotton
balls with peppermint oil
and put them all over the
car. You'd better put them in
your house, too. This runs
them off. They don't like it.
You can get it online. Type

in "peppermint oil."
To the man who's having
problems with critters in his
car: Try borrowing some cat
litter and placing it around
your house. The odor
should keep those critters
away from your car.


Express lanes
I read your article in the
Sunday (Jan. 8) Chronicle
about the guy that went a
little overboard against the
woman (who) had more
than 10 items at the local
supermarket. My question
is this: I've seen this hap-
pen many times before and
I'm just wondering why
these supermarkets con-
tinue to check the person
out with more than 10
items. Don't they have a
policy?
OK, here's my experience
with the 10 items or less at
the grocery store. If the two
checkout lines for 10 items
or less are empty and
there's no one there and
the clerks are standing
there doing nothing, I have
had them come up and
take my basket from an-
other line and pull me into
their stall. And if people
come up to me with 10
items or less and look at
me funny, I always say,
"She told me to come down
here." So then that takes
care of the whole
discussion.
This is in reference with
10 items or less in the line:
Get a life. I mean these
people are here to serve
you. What's five or six more
items going to do? What's it


Friday, December 28, 2012 G17

take, a minute out of their
time to check them out? Im-
patient people. Like I said,
find a life. Don't sit there
and count every day.
This is in regard to the ar-
ticle on Jan. 8 about the guy
that went a little overboard
against the woman who
had more than 10 items in
her shopping cart at the
local supermarket. I'm not
sure that bending her finger
over and yelling at her is a
little overboard. It seemed
like he fell clear overboard.
And 10 items or less her
name might have been
"Less'" Anyway, if you're in a
hurry, go to 7-Eleven. I'm
glad they reined him in.
Can you take one more
comment in the Sound Off
about the 10 items or less?
I was in that aisle the other
day. A woman came in front
of me and she had a 12-
pack of soda and a dozen
eggs. Now anybody can
count that that's 24 items,

Volunteer
Christmastime is the time
for many people to feel
lonely and sad because
they have no one to love or
feel close to. If you're one of
these people who gets de-
pressed during the holi-
days, I suggest you take
some time to volunteer at a
place such as a nursing
home, where people would
love to have a visitor, or vol-
unteer at a church where
they're feeding the home-
less people. Believe me,
that would make you real-
ize just how well off you are
and how much you have to
be thankful for. Try it and
you'll forget all about feeling
depressed.

Help others
I'd like to say one thing:
These people who are on
unemployment, sitting at
home collecting big bucks,
feeling sorry for them-
selves, don't go out and
find a job, should go to a
nursing home, the hospital,
volunteer your time and talk
to a lot of lonely people. I
work in a nursing home and
you'd be very surprised at
the ones in there who have
no one, that would love
someone to come in give
them a smile on their face
and read to them or some-
thing. God only helps the
ones who help themselves.

Charge extra
I know the post office is
having a lot of problems
and I'm thinking instead of
closing some of their loca-


tions or cutting back on
their services, why don't
they charge some extra for
some of the services they
provide now? For instance,
forwarding mail a good
example here in Florida.
We have so many snow-
birds. People have their
mail forwarded from up
North down here to Florida
and then when they move
back up from Florida, their
mail is forwarded from
Florida back up North. Why
not charge extra for that?
That's a lot of extra work for
them and they should be
receiving something for it
and maybe the rest of us
wouldn't be suffering for
what other cutbacks might
be required by the post
office.

Shoot blanks
The people that usually
celebrate by shooting a
gun, they usually shoot
straight up in the air. But re-
member, what goes up
must come down some-
where. If you're going to
shoot, get blanks.

Legislators' lies
I am all for drug testing
state employees if an at-
tached amendment to that
proposed bill would also
have a provision that all
state legislators and
elected state officials would
be required to undergo a
lie-detector test with Fifth
Amendment rights waived.

Great idea
I'd like to respond to "Ter-

rible idea" in today's paper
(Jan. 17). I think that it's a
wonderful idea. They ab-
solutely should put bill-
boards on school buses -
any way to help keep those


teachers in the classrooms
and the buses moving. I
don't know why this person
would think it was a terrible
idea, but it's a wonderful
idea.

Buy American
All we do is complain
how we can't buy Ameri-
can-made merchandise in
stores, only Chinese. Stop
complaining and do some-
thing about it. Tell the mer-
chants you won't buy
Chinese; you demand to
have them stock American
merchandise. People, try


not to buy Chinese mer-
chandise for three months.
This will get the picture.
They'll get the idea and do
something about it. Compa-
nies will hurt and speak out.


When we buy Chinese,
your money goes for them
to build aircraft carriers,
planes and God knows
what else. China is not our
friend. So let's do some-
thing about it, America.
Wake up, people. Now
they're drilling for oil in
Japanese waters. This is
unbelievable. Do something
about it. Speak to your con-
gressmen, but don't buy
Chinese goods.

Ride, don't drive
I was calling about the
high gas prices that we've


BEST OF SOUND OFF


been experiencing lately. I
have found a method of
getting around them. I sold
my van in July last year and
I've been (riding) my bicy-
cle to and from work and
the store, wherever I had to
go, ever since. In addition to
saving money on gas, I'm
helping make gas cheaper
for all the rest of you be-
cause that leaves more for
all of you. That's the way
economics is supposed to
work. I know it's not getting
any cheaper, but I'm trying,
doing my part.

Bounty on
snakes
I'm calling about the
snakes that are being im-
ported and released in the
Everglades. I think probably
one word would take care
of those snakes down
there. Put a bounty on
them. They'll clean them
right out.

Build a fence
I know that us Northern
people don't know very
much, but after reading
your paper, I solved the
problem of the people at
Three Sisters Springs. If
you don't want eyes looking
in your back yard, do what I
do. I just built a fence.

Be safe,

this regard. Let's be safe,
not sorry.

Fill holes
When owning a property
that is not fenced in, if you
have large holes on it and
there are children living in
the area, make sure to
cover them up quickly. Chil-
dren have a habit of wan-
dering all over and if they
fall into such a hole, they
could break a leg. It's very
dangerous.

Velcro tongs
If an item falls on the
floor and you can't bend
down to pick it up, use a
pair of tongs to pick it up
with. Also, if you use a
walker, buy sticky Velcro
and put it on your walker
and tongs. Enjoy your new
toy.

Park snugly
I'm calling about the per-
son that wanted to find out
where to get the locally
available garage door hurri-
cane reinforcement bars.
Someone told us when we
first moved here 15 years
ago that during a storm, we
should, in our double-car
garage, back both cars
right up to the garage door
snugly. We find that that
works good, the doors don't
rattle, and it may be an an-
swer for you.

Desperate dogs
I'm calling in regards to
Saturday, Jan. 7's article on
"Pit bulls, bull dogs re-
moved from homes." These
animals were on short,
heavy chains. One of them
nearly starved to death; an-
other one with his jaw and
lip hanging open. It's pa-
thetic. To think people
would treat an animal like
this is tragic. I just can't un-
derstand it. This is terrible
and yet they would be re-
turned to these people if a
citation was issued and
they have five days to claim
these dogs and get them
back. These people should
not be allowed to even own
a stuffed animal, let alone
live animals. This is terrible.
This really upsets me.

Fat dogs
Dogs. If your dog is fat,
you aren't getting it enough
exercise.

Call animal
control
To the person who's so
concerned about loose
dogs running around Bev-
erly Hills: Call animal con-
trol and have them pick
them up. Then if the person
who owns those dogs
wants them back, they have
to pay to get them out of the
pound. This is not a free
service. So if these owners
have to go and pay to get
their dogs out, they'll think
twice about letting them
loose again. Call animal
control or call one of the


BEST OF SOUND OFF


agencies that are involved
with animals. Then see if
they'll come out and cap-
ture these dogs and put
them in the pound. Then if
the owners want them
back, the owners can come
and pay to get them out.

Cooped in poop
Saw on the news where
people have left 250 dogs
in chicken coops where
they were crowded together
and poorly fed. These peo-
ple will get a simple slap on
the wrists and a couple-a-
hundred-dollars fine and
then released. They de-
serve something worse
than that. Even a jail cell is
too good for them. They
should be locked up in a
chicken coop with urine and
poop all over them and see
how they like it. After the
slap on their wrists, they'll
go right back out and breed
more expensive dogs to be
treated like that while they
sell them for big bucks. The
slap on their wrists doesn't
scare them at all. They
know nothing else will hap-
pen to them with our won-
derful system.


Restrain pets
My husband and I were
going down (U.S.) 19 in
Crystal River today near the
hospital and a truck passed
us and in the back of that
truck was a pit bull a very
nice white and brown dog -
who was pacing back and
forth on a diamond plated
toolbox that was up against
the cab, completely unre-


Anin


strained. He went from the
left to the right to the left to
the right and we were petri-
fied that the driver would
swerve or have to jam his
brakes on and that dog
would have been a goner.
We fell farther back behind
him, but he went speeding
off and there were plenty of
other cars going by. And I
can't get over the irrespon-
sibility of that dog owner. Is
there no law in Florida that
the dog has to be re-
strained somewhere?

Take a picture
This is regarding "Your
dog, my yard." All they have
to do is take a picture of the
dog in their yard and they
will get a citation, according
to the police department.
There is also a leash law for
cats and it works the same
way. If you see a cat run-
ning around from some-
body, you can take a
picture, call the sheriff's de-
partment and they will issue
them a citation.

Crazy coyotes
Coyotes in Pine Ridge -
they're just getting out of
hand. This morning at 8
o'clock in the morning, I
went out to get my paper.


they are attracted to the
garbage that is set out for

are not afraid of humans.
The On the last incident, the

had rabies. Therefore, when
I get my paper, I no longer

growled. They're just going
too far. They have killed and
eaten everything in the food
chain. They are outnumber-
ing us. We are next. Please,
someone do something
about it.


On the prowl
In today's paper, "Coyotes
on the prowl." Well, don't
these people that live in
Pine Ridge know that the
coyotes used to roam free
when there was no homes
around? They were there
first. These people from up
North that bought homes in
Pine Ridge should learn to
get along with them. They're
invading their privacy.
They're not invading theirs.
The coyotes were there
first, humans second.

Coyotes not
cowards
To the person in Pine
Ridge that has a coyote
problem: I live in Country-
side Estates. We also have
coyotes. At 6 a.m., I have to
walk to the mailbox to get
my paper. In the last year, I
have seen coyotes on four
different occasions. I believe

They're here
OK, for the "Where are
they" person in the Sound
Off speaking of the coyotes
in Pine Ridge: I was a
newspaper delivery driver in
Pine Ridge in 2006 and had
over 300 customers on the,
I guess you'd call it the side
closest to Beverly Hills and
Pine Ridge Boulevard going
into (County Road) 491,
and every, well, two or three
mornings a week I would
see coyotes all the time be-
tween 3 and 5 a.m., along
with bobcats, deer, armadil-
los, raccoons, possums.
You name it, they're there.

Take off bifocals
This is about Pine Ridge
coyotes. Well, I think they
don't know coyotes from
squirrels. I think they need
to take their bifocals off be-
cause a squirrel is a squirrel
and a coyote is a coyote

and I don't think there's any
in Pine Ridge or anywhere
else. I've been here six
years and I haven't seen
any, so send them my way.
I'd like to have some coy-
otes over here in Beverly
Hills. Don't bother me any.
They were here first and I
truly appreciate them. This
is for the Pine Ridge Home-
owners Association: At your
next meeting, please edu-
cate your city folks in Pine
Ridge the difference be-
tween a squirrel and a coy-
ote. I believe they don't
know.

Whooping
cranes
Just a few days ago, the
Chronicle reported that the
whooping cranes had just
flown over here, headed
back North. Now they're re-
porting here on Friday, May
4, that there's whooping
cough cases in the county
with our children. Coinci-
dence? I wonder.

Leave coyotes
alone
I wish the people would
leave the coyotes alone. I
live in Apache Shores in
Hernando and I've got three
of them that come to my
back yard every night and I
give them chicken bones
and food to eat and they
don't bother my animals. So
I think that people should
just leave them alone and
start feeding them and they
wouldn't bother you.

Volunteer board
Referring to the school
board: A volunteer school
board is done in so many
other areas where the chil-
dren are put first. This is a
no-brainer for me.

Great job
Congratulations to our
school district, who once
again came out on top
across the state. Your hard
work and dedication does
not go unnoticed and all of
us Citrus Countians appre-
ciate your efforts. Thanks,
and great job.

Deserves
a gold star
Don't let anyone tell you
that Obama hasn't accom-
plished anything in his
presidency. The latest
feather in his cap is the
elimination of the "No Child
Left behind" program.
Schoolteachers all over the
country must be celebrat-
ing and this is the best
thing that could have hap-
pened for our schoolchild-
ren for a long time not to
be subject to a course
where they're taught to an-
swer a test, but taught in-
formation that they can
use. One golden star for
President Obama.

Too much
homework
Children in public school
should have time to do
homework in school. It is
too much to expect chil-
dren to be in school for


seven hours, come home,
get dinner and have to sit
down and start homework.
Small assignments, yes,
but all this homework is too
much.

Homework helps
To the parents that think
that homework should not
be given to the children:
The teachers are there to
teach, but it's up to the par-
ents to follow through and
help them with their home-
work. Are you parents too
busy with your own social
life that you can't help your
children at night? Maybe
that's the problem and I
think you better take a
good at yourselves and
see what's going on.

Practice
makes perfect
Teachers are not asking
students to go home to
"learn" from homework;
they're asking the students
to "practice" what they
learned in class in order to
reinforce the lessons
learned, just as we did
when we were children.

Response
to ignorance
How to respond to igno-
rance? Well, here goes:
Read Maxwell's column in
the Tampa Times on Sun-
day (Sept. 23). He covers it
beautifully. Nowadays, a
teachers must have the
soul of a missionary and
the hide of a rhino. Teach-
ing gets no respect but de-

County

Schools


mands, in most states, a
bachelor's degree and a
master's degree. As a
teacher, I put in 71-hour
workweeks which included
7 to 5 at school on tasks,
three hours grading each
night on average, no pay
for chaperoning numerous
activities, and stress,
stress, stress. Public edu-
cation is the backbone of a
democracy, but we don't
want educated kids who
think anymore. We want
kids who believe what Fox
News tells them and pass
the tests the state imposes.
If you don't respect and
pay your teachers, you de-
serve what you will get.

Attend meetings
This is in response to the
retiree complaining about
our county's extreme
spending on the school
system. When was the last
time you sat in on a PTO
meeting, a SAC or a school
board meeting? I'm guess-
ing never, because if you
had, you'd know that there
is no money for lavish
spending, especially on
what you call our costly
sports teams. There is only
a constant, tiresome, com-
bined effort from schools
and communities to cre-


atively devise new ways to
combat each year's de-
crease in funding so the
students don't feel the
brunt of the shortfall. And
this we do for necessities
like computer earphones,
student planners and PE
equipment, which our an-
nually shrinking budget
doesn't even cover. You say
our teachers are always
crying about being under-
paid? Well, do you know
any of them personally?
Because I do and the only
complaints I have ever
heard revolved around
making ends meet in the
classroom. No teacher ever
went into that field aiming
to get rich. And know this:
Every state, even those
promoting lotteries for
school funding, have a por-
tion of their taxes go to-
wards public schools. If you
think it's more fair some-
where else, then go there.
Or better yet, go to wher-
ever you came from so you
don't feel burdened sup-
porting the children who do
call Florida their home
state.

Proud parents
I would like to give a big
congratulations to all our
Crystal River High School


BEST OF SOUND OFF


Marching Pirates, who won
first in their class and ninth
overall at the Citrus High
School Marching Invita-
tional. Great job, kids. And
a big kudos to Mr. John
Ash, the band director. We
love you guys, from all your
Band Booster parents.

Way to go, IPS
Great job, IPS, for salut-
ing our county's veterans,
like you do each year along
with many other schools in
our county. Thanks for all
you do in letting our young
children know how impor-
tant our veterans are to all
of us.

Schools need
money
I see a (story) saying,
"We need to convince the
public of need for more tax
for the school system." I
agree, but I certainly feel
that it would be helpful if
Citrus Memorial would pay
taxes so that we can use
that money for the schools
and they wouldn't be able
to monopolize the com-
plete county by buying
building after building after
building with our taxpayers'
money. So I think that that's
a very important point for
the county.

Where's lottery
money?
Schools are wanting
more money from taxpay-
ers. The lottery brags
about how much money
they are donating to


CITRUS COUNTY (FL) CHRONICLE

schools. Our tax bills show
we are paying our share of
school taxes. Where is the
lottery school money? It
was not meant to be spent
by politicians.

Pie in the face
A teacher does not put in
seven hours or eight hours
a day. She also stays after
school to counsel the stu-
dents, then she goes home
and prepares a late dinner
and then she prepares her
work for the next day. So
how can you possibly be
so thrilled about smashing
a pie in a teacher's face?

Can't write
cursive
I recently just found out
that my granddaughter,
who is in the sixth grade
and she's 12 years old,
and she cannot write in
cursive. Am I the only one
that has this problem? I
asked her and she said,
"No, we just don't do that
anymore. They don't teach
us that." Is this correct?
Check your children and
see if they can write in cur-
sive. I'd like to know about
this. Call in.

Paying for iPads
What kind of country are
we living in? There is not
enough money to meet the
budget but there is money
for grants to buy iPads.
There are kids without a
roof over their head or any
food and we are giving
away iPads? Is this nuts or
what?

Speeders
aplenty
This is in response to the
Sound Off about Citrus
County's finest hiding in the
woods on King's Bay Drive
to catch speeders. The
finest should come out to
West Century Boulevard in
Citrus Springs. They would
not have to hide in the
woods. The speeders here
are in-the-face type.

Ain't broke,
don't fix it
I think it's time for "Sam"
Himmel to go back to the
drawing board. What a
complete mess U.S. 41 was
this morning. Traffic had to
wait at the post office light
and the Kmart light through
four light changes to get to
the school entrance. All
traffic from the post office to
Hernando was one big ac-
cident waiting to happen. A
word of advice, Sam: If
something isn't broke, don't
fix it.

Time to let go
There was no need to
close Ella (Avenue) off at
Middle School (Drive) for
any time. If middle school-
age children aren't smart
enough or old enough to
watch for the small amount
of traffic off Ella to the
school, then those parents
haven't taught those stu-
dents to be wise and inde-
pendent. Students should
dress for cold weather. No
reason for parents to drive
them. At what age are


these parents going to stop
holding their children's
hand?

Bad brainchild
Regarding "Traffic woes"
at (U.S.) 41 and Middle
School Road: Three weeks
ago when I found out about
that idea, I cautioned the
city and the state that it
would be a problem. So I
guess it's "I told you so."
Whose brainchild was that?
It's a ridiculous idea.

Super-speedway
Crystal Oaks Drive in
Lecanto has become a
super-speedway. There are
very few cars that go 35
mph. Someday there's
going to be a terrific acci-
dent there, either hitting a
local resident crossing the
road or else a car coming
out of Christina or Turkey
Pine Loop when they come
around the bend from Ven-
able. They speed as fast as
they can. The police really
should be there and watch
quite often.

Traffic police
I'd like to ask the drivers
of Citrus County to all quit
trying to be traffic police.
You're not the traffic police.
If you have the right of way,
take it. If there's no stop
sign, go. I don't understand
the people in this county.
Everybody wants to be the
traffic cop and try and let
people go. And that's real
nice and all, but you're
going to end up getting
somebody in an accident.


I R
/y



Just take the right of way
and follow the driving rules.
That simple.

'L turns
I agree with the person
who complained about
someone hitting their car


when they were backing
out of a parking space.
People who can't turn their
steering wheel to make an
"L" turn in reverse should
not have a driver's license. I
know of one family who had
a 2-by-2-foot concrete post
made to put their mailbox
on top of simply because
the man across the street
does not know how to turn
the wheel when he's in re-
verse, so he just backed
straight out and then hit


On the

oad Again


their wooden post and
knocked it over all the time.
Now if he hits the concrete,
it's his problem with dam-
age to his car. The people
who test new drivers before
they get a license should
check to see if they can do


anything in reverse, but
they don't do that anymore
since they stopped check-
ing parallel parking.

Use turn signals
I'm just curious. Would it
be too much to ask people
in Florida to use their turn
signals? They seem to use
them all over the country. It
would be great, I mean, just
to let somebody know your
intentions, not to mention
safety.


Wear helmets
Imagine just falling over
and banging your head on
the concrete. Now imagine
doing that at 30 or 50
mph, let alone running
into another vehicle. I
don't understand why you
people think you're invinci-
ble and never going to die
riding around on these
motorcycles without hel-
mets.

Scary feeling
I was visiting in Citrus
County over the holiday
weekend these private
clubs you go into and
noticing the men and
women that come in there.
I wonder how some of
them even drive a car.
They can hardly walk... It's
(an) awful scary feeling.

Stay home
This call goes out to the
elderly gentleman with the
brand-new yellow Corvette
that opted to take up three
parking places at the
Lecanto Post Office: If
you're so worried about
your overpriced plastic
car, why don't you just
leave it at home?

Speed trap
Anybody that lives on
Turner Camp Road knows
the speed limit out here
has been 45 for a long
time. This past week,
some geniuses decided to
make some changes. As
we come out of town
going east to the river, re-

Road is six miles long. We
start at 25 mph, then it
goes up to 30, then it
goes to 35, then it goes to
45 back to what it was
originally then you get
around on the straight
stretch in front of our
property where it's proba-
bly the straightest road on
the whole road, it's back
down to 35 and as you get
out to the river, it's 30. If
this isn't going to be a
beautiful speed trap for
the sheriff.

Ignorant drivers
No matter what the
sheriff, the county or the
state does to the roads or
adding lights, it's ignorant
people that don't know
how to drive and they go
too fast and they don't
care about anybody else
and they're always in a
hurry and impatient. That's
what causes accidents. If
they'd stop and think what
might kill themselves, they
might not do it.

Smoke, not
speed
I'm responding to your
Sound Off, "Slow down,"
about the speed limit on I-
75. He says that caused
10 people to die. Speed
was not the reason that 10
people's lives were lost. It
was due to fire, smoke
and fog that caused the
people to get killed. Has
nothing to do with speed.
So he or she needs to get
their facts straight. Has
nothing to do with speed.

Cruel gossip
Gossip is not only cruel;
it can damage people's
reputations beyond re-
demption. Remember the
biblical verse, "Let he who
is without sin cast the first
stone."

Beautiful story
There was a very beauti-
ful story on a national TV
network. A nurse was car-
ing for a young man with
kidney failure. Through the
weeks of caring for him,
she got to know him well
and developed a deep
compassion. She donated
one of her kidneys to him.
To show such human car-
ing for another being who
is a virtual stranger is a
miracle in today's cold
world.

Vultures circling
It's hard to have com-
passion and caring when
you work with vultures in-
stead of flying with eagles
who shouldn't be in health
care.

Wasted wipes
I'm calling in about the
people that use these sani-
tary wipes when you first
go into the grocery store.
What gets me madder
than all get-out is, they use
it for stuff that it's not in-
tended to use it for. It's in-
tended to be used for the
grocery carts and that's it,
not to wipe your hands off,
not to wipe the 10-or-less
basket off. They're specifi-
cally made for wiping the


BEST OF SOUND OFF


grocery store carts off, the
big carts, nothing else.
That's why the grocery bill
is so high, because they're
using these things to wipe
off other things than what
they're intended for. It re-
ally burns me up.

Can't teach
stupid
This call is, "You can't
teach stupid." In reply to
"No sympathy": The person
must be so far from being
wrong. He probably, or
she, never owned anything
- most likely still putting
your feet under daddy's
table and don't have any
ambition to work for some-
thing. Most likely a 99-per-
center. We own a farm and
have probably paid more
taxes over the years than
you have earned. Ask
some of the people in Cit-
rus County that had to sell
land and cattle just to keep
the family farm. When you
start working and having to
pay taxes, you will learn
some of this stuff. Did I
mention you can't teach
stupid?

You're welcome
I'd like everybody on the
road, when I leave (at) 7
o'clock in the morning, to
say hello to me. Why? Be-
cause I go to work and I
have to pay for your school
loans, I have to pay for
WIC, I have to pay for food
stamps, foreclosure, every-
thing else. So please wave
and say thank you. I'd ap-
preciate that. Good day.

Apples
and oranges
One reader pontificates
we want apples, lettuce,
pork, beef, poultry, or-
anges, our dishes washed,
our construction work, our
fast foods, doctors, nurses
and our lawns cared for.
However, before he stated
that those people should
be willing to work at non-
meaningful jobs and paid
starvations wages. You
don't think that they want
apples, pork, beef, poultry,
construction, etc? How
smug can you be?

Too tired
to smile
I was standing in line at
the checkout behind an
80-something-year-old
woman dressed in de-
signer jeans, trendy blouse
and baseball cap. As she
approached the young
cashier, she shouted,
"Smile." The cashier
replied that she was sorry,
she was too tired because
she had worked all night at
her other job and still had
four hours to go on this
one. "You're lucky to have
any job at all," the 80-year-
old snapped back. These
are the kind of people who
begrudge a living wage or
any decent wage to our
working people. They be-
lieve the poor are poor be-
cause they are lazy and
that welfare claims have
children just to get ADC
payments. These are the
kind of people on the gov-
ernment welfare of Social

Security and Medicare and
they resent anything done
to help the worker get
ahead.

Counting
chickens
I see how the Democrats
are really praising them-
selves about how the
economy is starting to turn
around because it dropped
a little bit in the last quar-
ter. I just wonder how
much of it could be be-
cause of the Christmas
holidays that all these
extra companies have to
hire extra help just for the
holiday reasons. I think the
first quarter's going to take
a drop or the unemploy-
ment's going to go back up
like it was. I think they're
counting their chickens
before they hatch.

Keeping cars
The average age of a
car on the road today is
10.8 years. Forty years
ago, people gave a 4-year-
old car away to a neigh-
borhood teenager and
bought a new one.

Terrible to awful
We keep hearing Presi-
dent Obama proudly say
that he has turned the
economy around and etc.
So my neighbor and I were
talking and when I asked
him whether he thought
the economy had turned
around, he said, "Sure, it
has gone from terrible to
awful." That just about
sums it up.

Job cycle
Many of you people
need to grow up. I'm a
senior citizen. I've lived
long enough to see the
patterns of business and
life. And in business many
people, whether it's the
government or the private
industry, they have their
slow periods and they
have their busy periods.
Businesses, the retailers,
in the summertime hire
extra help to let others in
their departments go on
vacation. When school
starts, then they have to
pay them off because they
have to go to school or to
college. And they don't hire
someone else until it gets
near the holiday time, late
October. Then they have to
hire a few people to help
with the busy season. This
goes on day and night.

This is a hold-up
Yesterday while shop-
ping in the market, I
glanced at baby food. The
jars are 2.5 ounces in size
and quite tiny and cost 97
cents a jar. At least when
Jesse James went into a

open about and held a
gun.
