NEW SEAT BELT LAW
GOES INTO EFFECT
JUNE 30th

On June 30th, a new law re-
quiring that the driver and
all passengers in a car be
properly restrained in seat
belts goes into effect.

The primary difference be-
tween this law and the ex-
isting one is that with the
old one, officers could not
pull you over just for not
wearing a seat belt. As of
June 30th, not wearing a
seat belt will be all they
need to write you a ticket.
So, buckle up!

legislation for Florida Agri-
culture and the people of
the State of Florida. The
passage of this legislation
means Florida will be able
to access critical resources

threats are still confined to
a smaller area with less po-
tential devastation."

port an effort to prevent the
spread of plant pest infesta-

ter job of protecting our
agriculture
and environ-
mental re-
sources. This
is a big win
for our Flori-

and growers",
said Represen-
tative Bembry

"I am proud of
the work we
put in to pass-

Ronald read sto-
ries to the kids
and emphasized
the importance

Letterman the jerk and Trump the wimp

David Letterman has demonstrated that he is little more
than a echo chamber for establishment liberals who can't
Stand the thought of a good-looking conservative woman
having a prominent role in American politics.

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin recently visited New York
City, along with her 14 year old daughter, Willow. They went
to a baseball game, which seems like a wholesome form of
entertainment for a teen-ager and her mom, After all, Alas-
ka doesn't have a major league team of its own; since there
would be a rather short period in which home games could
be played, and the stadium would probably wind up being
called the Snow Bowl, which would give Letterman and oth-
ers of his ilk another source of crude humor.

Letterman decided this would be the ideal occasion upon
which to cement his credentials as a pawn of the political
left, so he came up with a remark about Palin's trip to the
Big Apple-being to visit Blomingdale's so she could "...buy
.makeup to update her slutty flight attendant look." Does
anybody actually think he'd have said Michelle Obama or
Nancy Pelosilooked "slutty"? (Does anyone think he'll get a
complimentary beverage next time he flies commercial?)

Naturally, David Letterman wouldn't have insulted two
ladies of his own political persuasion. however he had no
problem taking a cheap shot at Sarah Palin. and even at Mrs.
Palin's teenage daughter-as in his comment that, "One awk-
ward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game; during
the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex
Rodriguez."

Letterman later explained that he was confused about which
Palin daughter he was insulting, thinking it was 18 year old
Bristol. Lame excuse, Dave. Dirty old men making crude
jokes about teenage.girlis decidedly over the top, even for
late night TV ,:--. -.�

And then we have Donald Trump, guru in charge (GIC) of
the Mliss California USA/Universe competition, who recent-
ly stood up to the gay lobby (or so it appeared at the time) by
allowing Carrie Prejean to keep the Miss California title af-
ter being denied the Miss USA crown by a limp-wristed .
judge after she said that marriage should be between a man
'*and a woman.

Unfortunately, The Donald wimped out. After it was dis-
' closed that Miss,Prejean,had posed for some seminude pho|
tos, which showed up ontiInternet blogs, not the girlie aga-
zines (they weren,'t.iha cracy), Trump decided that she was-
n't of sufficiently goocFcharacter to hold the Miss California
Title, so lie dumped her. -

Now,'let me get this straight. It's OK for a beauty contest to
be judged by some weirdo guy who doesn't like girls and who
gets a contestant passed over for'the Miss USA title because
she doesn't believe in gay marriage; but it's not permissible
for a contestant to show a little more skin than'would be ac-
ceptable in Better Homes And Gardens? What happened,
Donald, did Rosie-Q'Dqnnell threaten to beat you up again?



Correction: The,soldier who was killed by a Muslim fanatic
at an Arkansas recruiting facility was 23 year old William
Long. Another name was used in last week's Right To The
Point. My apologies.


Father Knows Best


by Kathy McKinney

vly daddy really does. I can tell you that, be-
?cause he's off on a cruise to Mexico with a
bunch of his high school friends and he
.won't be reading this, hopefully So don't tell
him I said so, or I'll never hear the end of it.


Father's Day is coming up, and it pretty much gets ignored
by everybody but people who are trying to sell you some-
thing. Mothers Day gets lots of attention, and lord help you
if you don't do something for your mother. You will forever
go down on the lists of Worst. Children. Ever. But every-
body pretty much blows off the idea of having a day devoted
to those men who devoted themselves to making sure you
got braces on your teeth when you needed them, that you
had health insuranceithat you knew how to change a tire
and that you got new shoes every once in a while. Those
things are necessary, but they don't make good Hallmark
commercials, I guess..

My daddy's always done that sort of stuff for me. I didn't
realize until' I got older how, much he did for
me. Most of it was invisible, or in the "If you're
teenaged way, I just figured it was what he rr
was supposed to do. Whpn I was in high ' ma are
school, I remember getting up at like, 2 am children, es
and he'd be sitting at our big Ethan Allen din- Do you rei
ing table, folding my clothes. Mind you, I was an
in high school. I could have (and probably boys a
,should have) been folding my own Levis. But hawks? The]
he'd work all day and then he'd work half the out what ma
night, doing stuff for us.
and y
He always kept a candyjar sitting on the
counter in the kitchen, filled with goodies for
our friends--especially Lori Chewning and
Anne Braddy, candy junkies--and we'd go through that jar
like a swarm of biblical locusts. He'd&refill it, grumbling the
whole time, (Dang kids, eating me out of house and home!)
but not meaning it.

I love lemon-lime Gatorade. Always have. Daddy started or-
dering it in wholesale, in powdered form, when he ordered
food products for the drive-in theater. He experimented and
worked out this measuring system with a jelly jar and a
piece of tape that marked how much powder was just right
to make it taste the way I liked it. How many people would
have done that?

SHe read The Yearling to us at bedtime. He made up stories
about Sinbad and Candy Land, and always made sure that
we had magical Christmases. I remember one Christmas
where we had gone to Horseshoe to cut a real Christmas
tree. We got it home, but the little red and green metal stand
just couldn't handle the big cedar tree that we had brought
hOme. It wouldn't stand up. He tied it to the ceiling. It fell
over. So he thought. And he came back with a 5 gallon
bucket and then he went to the store and came back with a
bag of quick-set concrete. And that danged tree stood up, ohi
yes it did. (It turned sorta crunchy and brown, tho igh.)

I think that was the Christmas we got Pong. If you're too
young to know what Pong was, it was the first and quite pos-
sibly the best computer game ever. It came in a large brown


Dear Editor,

Recent stories in the Citrus
County Chronicle have quot-
ed Mr. Lyash, Florida CEO of
Progress Energy, of the pri-
vately owned and operated
electric provider to 1.7M rate
payers,. saying that the nu-
clear power plants in Levy
County WILL be built. His
comments are without ques-
tion premature as the courts
have determined that the
plants cannot go forward
without proper permitting.

We also know that a similar
proposal was introduced in
another State and that, be-
cause the final permitting
was not granted for the evac-
uation route in an emer-
gency, the plant never pro-
duced one kilowatt hour of
electricity for the rate pay-
- ers. This is not a mistake we
want to repeat here.

. I challenge the comments
made by Mr. Lyash. His
comments fly in the face of
the process afforded the
company he represents and-
the due diligence required
by Progress Energy Electric
Company Mr. Lyash's state-
ments to the paper demon-
strate: either a lack of com-
prehension of the process at
best, or an arrogance re-
garding the cash strapped
rate payers plight at worse,
in these very difficult eco-
nomic times. Mr. Lyash ap-
pears to be consumed with


the profits to Progress Ener-
gy and his high paying posi-
tion, and not that of the
1.7M rate payers PE services
here in Florida.

Mr. Lyash, just because you
make these unsubstantiated
claims, doesn't make it so.
Stop misrepresenting the
real facts to the rate payers..
It is time to stop the corpo-.
rate greed rhetoric to protect
the 10% profit granted to
your company by the Public
Service Commission. It is
time for Progress Energy to
rethink its fundamental pri,
orities of profit, and be
mindful of the economic re-
alities facing the cash
strapped rate payers of
Florida.

Call To Action: We have the
opportunity to tell Mr. Lyash
'and his representatives what
we really think about their
request to the Public Service
Commission for yet another
electric rate increase. Corn e
to the Public Hearing to be
held on Friday, 9AM to Noon
on July 17th at the Citrus
County Auditorium, 3610 S.
Florida Ave., Inverness.
Please come and take an ac-
tive role to display your op-
position to the Progress En-
ergy rate hikes.

Respectively submitted,

front of the television and played that game for hours and

that I never finished the first Mario Brothers game because
he beat it first. I just couldn't face it, knowing that he had
already beaten that last Boss before me. (OK; so I'm over-
competitive.) But he played with us.

He always made sure that we had whatever we needed. We
got money for college, we got new school clothes, we got
summer camps and vacations and I can't think of a single
necessary thing that I did without as a kid. He worked a lot,
and we didn't always have as much money as we needed, but
we kids never really knew that until we were older. Never
had to worry about anything. Daddy handled all that. I got
a childhood.

So many kids don't get that from their father, don't have that
security, that sense that someone is tak-
a dad, what kind of ing care of them, that they don't have to

Bill Hybels telling you that you are wrong. If you get
more letters from the state begging and
threatening you to pay your child support
than you do from Ed McMahon trying to get you to enter
that silly publishing sweepstakes then you are not'a good fa-
ther. If you use your family as punching bags for your frus-
tration, or yell and scream at everybody so much that your
kids dread your presence and hide in their rooms until you
leave again, you are not a good father.

Everybody is.so politically correct these days and afraid to
tell the truth. it's all about "different cultures" or "family
structures" and tolerancee." Bullpatties.

A father's job #1 in life should be to provide for and to pro-
tect his kids...to make sure that they get the childhood that
they need to be well-adjusted adults. You don't have to be
perfect, but you have to try. If your kids are doing without
things they need while you're fishing in your new airboat,
or drinking beer with your buddies, or too "busy"-to spend
time with them, you are not a good father. If you are out
making new babies with new women while your kids are on
welfare and food stamps, you are not a good father. If
you're neglecting your kids and depending on their mother
to carry the entire burden on her own you are not a good fa-
Sther. If you are not doing everything in your power to make
sure that your kids feel secure and safe, you are not a good
father. You can tell yourself otherwise, but.in my opinion,
you are a waste of perfectly good oxygen. This is a good day
to change things, for you, and for your kids.
S. Happy Father's Day, Daddy.

IXI OUTJALLO0


School's out, and it is
time to Get Outdoors
Florida!

June conjures up visions of
active fun and the outdoors,
perhaps like no other time
of the year. In your mind's
eye, you may turn to scenes
depicted by Norman Rock-
well of a youth and a dog,
heading to the pond with a
cane pole, of a Florida
tourism post card showing
families cavorting on a
sandy beach, or perhaps
you see a backyard picnic
with Frisbees flying and
children running about, en-
joying the sunshine.

Maybe that is why the U.S.
Congress and Florida Gov.
Charlie Crist recognize
June as Great Outdoors
Month, and why we just cel-
ebrated National Get Out-
doors Day on June 13 (see
GetOutdoorsFlorida.com).

However, that is not all the
month is known for. It is,
also designated nationally
and in Florida as Rivers
Month, and as Fishing
Month by VISIT FLORIDA.
The first week in June is
National Fishing and Boat-
ing Week (see TakeMeFish-
ing.org for events and tips).

Recreational fishing and
boating remain among the
most popular outdoor activ-
ities in the U.S., and partici-:
pation in these activities in
Florida is part of the
lifestyle we enjoy in the
Sunshine State year round.
In fact, Florida is still the
Fishing Capital of the
World, providing nearly 3
million anglers with recre-
ational opportunities each
year. Those anglers enjoyed
more than 46 million days
- of wetting a line in antici-
pation of the next strike
last year, and slightly more
than half of those days
were,spent on fresh water,
which is easily accessible to
almost every Floridian.

how many kids remember

family part of your Father's
Day festivities. The photos
are worth thousand
words; the memories last a
lifetime.

June 21 is also the longest
day of the year - the sum-
mer solstice. It is a day cele-
brated in many cultures as
a turning point, when the
pendulum of the celestial
clock shifts and days start
getting shorter. With all
that daylight, you can even
fit in some time to explore
other activities. The Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission promotes
a wide variety of lifetime
outdoor recreational skills
and opportunities around
the state (see
MyFWC.com/Recreation),
including bird-watching,
wildlife viewing, paddling
sports, fishing and hunting.

The Great American Back-
yard Campout is June 27, so
with summer's long days
and pleasant evenings,
don't forget outdoor recre-
ation after dark. You can
find simple tips for camp-
ing, even in your.backyard,
Sat the National Wildlife Fed-
eration's Web site (see
NWEorg/BackyardCam-
pout).

Gov. Crist recently pro-
claimed June 27 to July 3 as
Dive Flag Awareness Week.
The intent is to emphasize
safety and'call attention to
the fun of snorkeling and
scuba diving. Florida has
plenty of opportunities for
both, including scallop sea-
son, which starts July 1
along Florida's Gulf Coast.
.Remember to keep that red
flag with its bright white di-
agonal stripe flying nearby
to warn boaters to stay
away or slow to idle speed if
they come close (100 feet in
rivers and channels, 300 feet
in open water).

I hope. you get my point.
SThe key isn't an elaborate
trip and spending a bunch
of money, or even a special
day week or month. It is
about making time to recon-
nect with nature and com-
municating with people
who are near and dear to
you, without the distrac-
tions of TVs and video
games. grades, profession
Getting outside creates
more advocates who care
for our natural resources
(see

Progress Energy Florida urges
customers to be safe around power
lines--June is National Safety
Month

ST. PETERSBURG, FL. (June
9, 2009) -Each year, as many
as 1,000 people are elettrocut-
ed, and more than 30,000 are
injured in electrical shock
accidents. In observance of
June as National Safety
Month, Progress Energy en-
courages customers to take
precautions to avoid electri-
cal accidents.

The beautiful weather in
Florida allows residents to.
play and work outside almost
all year round - gardening,
flying kites; picnicking and
doing home repairs. Progress
Energy offers the following
safety tips to help customers
better enjoy these activities
arid avoid serious injury
from electricity

Important safety tips from
Progress Energy:

1. Use care when using
large or tall objects outdoors
to avoid contact with electric
wires. Metal extension lad-
ders and metal poles used for
trimming trees and'shrubs


The National Grange, the
nation's oldest general farin
and rural public interest or-
ganization, called upon the
Federal Communications
Commission this week to en-
sure that underserved com-
munities, particularly those
in rural and tribal areas, are
adequately served by broad-
band internet as part of that
agency's Notice of Inquiry
regarding the formation of
a National Broadband Plan.

From its filing:

"Rural Americans represent
one of the largest groups of
Americans who physically
do not have the option to
subscribe to broadband ser-
vice. To address the broad-
band access needs of these
unserved rural Americans,
it is critically important to.
first identify whom
these individuals, family
farmers and small business-
es are and where they are lo-
cated."

"A National Broadband Plan
should also address the need
for competition in deliver-
ing broadband to all Ameri-
cans. Competition will lead
to wider access, lower prices
and better service in answer
to the,inquiry in Paragraph
#49 of the NOI. However, in
response to Paragraph #48,
we need to ensure that the
federal, state and local gov-
ernments do not adopt regu-
lations that woulddiscour-
age competition.and invest-
ment by the private sector."

The National Grange is the
nation's oldest general farm
and rural public interest or-
ganization. Originally
founded in 1867, today the.
Grange represents nearly
200,000 grassroots Grange
members affiliated with
2,700 local, county and state
Grange chapters located in

because of their size and
conductivity
2. Never fly kites, model
planes or balloons around
power lines. Fly them in
open spaces, such as in a
field or on the beach. Never
use metal, foil or wire in
your kite or kite string.
3. Never go near downed
power lines. Always assume
they are energized and ex-
tremely dangerous. If some-
one suffers an electric shock,
call 911 immediately. Even
minor shocks may cause se-
rious health problems later.
To report downed power
lines, call 800-228-8485..Only
qualified electric utility
workers should attempt to
move downed power lines.
4. Use care when cutting or
trimming trees near power
lines as limbs may come into
contact with the line. Tree
limbs conduct electricity.
When entangled, trees and
wires are dangerous. Contact
Progress Energy at 800-228-
8485 before cutting or trim-
ming trees near power lines.
5. Never climb utility poles,
towers or substation fences.
If you lose something over a
substation fence, contact.
Progress Energy to retrieve
it for you.

Look Around -
Slow Down!
Boaters - Watch for
Manatees Over the
4th of July Weekend

Across the state, people are
getting fired
up for 4th of
July celebra-
tions. Save
the Manatee
Club reminds
the boating
community to
be extra cau- , ,PLI
tious over the
busy week-.
end. ,

"Watercraft-
related mor-
tality is an on-
going yet pre-
ventable cause of manatee
injuries and deaths," said.
Dr. Katie Tripp, Director of
Science and Conservation
for Save the Manatee Club.
"There were 42 confirmed
watercraft-related manatee
deaths through June 5, 2009,
and there have been a total
of 240 mortalities s6 far this
year. These numbers repre-
sent the highest total mor-
tality and second highest
watercraft mortality docu-
mented during this time
frame over the last 5 years.
In fact, historically, water-.
craft has been the leading
known cause of manatee
deaths. However, with the
cooperation and vigilance of
the boating community, we
hope that manatees can be
protected from further in-
jury during the July 4th
weekend and the remainder
of the summer boating sea-
son. Boaters often travel in
waterways shared with .
manatees so they play an
important role in protecting
this endangered marine
mammal." '

Boaters should follow all
posted boat speed regula-
tions, slow down if mana-
tees are in the area, and stay
in deep water channels
when possible. Call the
Florida Fish & Wildlife Con-
servation Commission at 1-
888-404-FWCC (3922) or
#FWC or *FWC on your cel-
lular phone, or use VHF
Channel 16 on your marine
radio:

if you see a
manatee with a pink or red
wound or with deep cuts.
These are signs of a recent
watercraft strike.

if the manatee
is tilting to one side, unable
to submerge, or seems to
have trouble breathing.
S if you observe
a manatee calf:(l18 h*t_ 6
feet in length) by itseljgrith
no adults around ~iioefx-
tended period of time. Man-
atee calves may remain de-
pendent on their mother for
up to two years. If the'"
mother dies before the calf
is weaned, or if the two are
separated, there is a strong
likelihood that a dependent
calf will not surv 'ive ilpne.


if you see
anyone harassing a mana-
tee.

if you see
boaters speeding in a pro-
tected area.

if you see a
manatee entangled in
monofilament line, crab


trap lines, or other debris.
Do not attempt to remove
debris by yourself. Debris
may be embedded under-
neath the skin and only a
trained veterinarian can ad-
equately assess and treat
the wound.
Sif you see a
dead manatee. By doing a
necropsy, scientists can of-
ten determine the cause of
death and better understand
the threats faced by mana-
tees.

if you see a
manatee tagged with a radio
or satellite transmitter.
Sightings of tagged mana-
tees help providere-
searchers with information
that can be used to protect
manatees and their habitat.
Do not attempt to remove
the transmitter. These de-
vices are designed with a
safety mechanism to pre-
vent manatee entanglement
if the tag becomes caught or
obstructs a manatee's move-
ment in any way

Florida boaters can request
a free; "Please Slow: Mana-
tees Below" waterproof yel-
low banner by contacting
Save the Manatee Club via
e-mail at
education@savethemana-
tee.org. Include full mailing
information along with the
area where you boat in
Florida.

Jennifer Dorning from Fort
Myers, Florida enjoys boat-
ing from Sanibel to Cayo
Costa. She often uses the
Club's banner to quickly
alert other boaters that
manatees are present. "The
bright, easy-to-read banner
is a great idea," she said.
"Before I had it, I was point-
ing to show other boaters
where there were manatees,
but often they couldn't see
what I was doing, and if
they did see me, they had no
idea why I was pointing."

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
June 11 at the Levy County Quilt Museum.
We have had more fabric samples brought
in and these we share. They can be used
to make tote bags, small crafts, etc. Quilt-
Sing goes on at the Rail Fence and Log Cab-
in.
We would like to say we did not give the
Watermelon Quilt away at the Festival.
We do not take quilts that are hand quilted
out in damp or hot weather. So itwill still


be here at the Museum until we decide a date to give it
away
Derick and six boys were out Tuesday and had a great time
getting things done. If a boy has not been here before, its
fun to teach him how we work.. Everything has its way to
keep it going and once they learn, we get lots of work done.
Thanks Lancaster for all you do for us.
Lunch was great with turkey loaf, rice, fried eggplant
(thanks to Doris), salad, bread, butter and watermelon pre-
serves, chocolate chip cookies, brownies, waternielon, and
Lois's famous chocolate desert. We had three guests who
enjoyed our lunch along with the quilters.
