John Snow
resigns
WASHINGTON Trea-
sury Secretary John Snow
resigned Tuesday and Presi-
dent Bush nominated Gold-
man Sachs chief executive
officer Henry M. Paulson Jr.
as his replacement, another
chapter in the shake-up to
revive Bush's troubled presi-
dency.
"He has a lifetime of busi-
ness experience. He has inti-
mate knowledge of financial
markets and an ability to
explain economic issues in
clear terms," Bush said of
Paulson in a Rose Garden
announcement.

Students can
study storms
TAMPA (AP) In a state
where hurricanes have
become as much a fact of life
-as sunburn and snowbirds, it
was only a matter of time
before a whole college
course would be devoted, to
studying the weather phe-
nomenon.
This summer, the Univer-
sity of South Florida is rolling
out an undergraduate
research class to examine,
hurricanes, from the science
of why they happen to how
communities respond
before, during and after they
hit. It's believed to be the first
college course anywhere to
- focus on hurricanes so com-
prehensively.

Mets beat
Diamondbacks
(AP) David Wright has
made a habit this season of
coming up with the big hit.
The Mets' third baseman
had his fourth game-ending
RBI Monday night in New
York's, 8-7 victory over the
Arizona Diamondbacks.
There is no one the Mets
would prefer in that situation
these days. Wright leads the
team in hitting at .332 and
has an uncanny knack for
being in the middle of rallies.
His youth is a non-factor with
manager \\'illie Randolph.

If the Florida Citrus Com-
mission (FCC) approves a
proposed tax hike for orange
and grapefruit growers, it is
unlikely that consumers will
experience much pain at the
check-out stand in their local
food market.
This is the opinion of Bob
Norberg, director ofl Econorn-
ic and Market Research for the
Florida- Department of Citrus-
(FDOC).
The FCC is proposing

incorrectly reported The in\'ocation and benediction were
offered by Dr. Edward Weiss, pastor of Church of Our Saviour,
not by Donald E.. Kovacs. We apologize for any inconvenience

said that only about a penny will
be added to a gallon of orange
juice and that would not trans-
late to very much for consumers
if It was passed on,
"We've had some very rapid
price increases in Florida fruit in
the past couple of years, due to
the hurricanes. Not all of those
increases were passed on to the
consumer. So, it is reasonable to
assume that the recent proposed
tax increase would not be
passed on. But if it were, it
would be less than I percent,
more like about .2 percent if the
full penny increase isilpproved.
That is minimal, if not negligi-

ble," he said,
The citrus commission will
decide on the tax increase at
their June 21 meeting. In the
meantime, staff members of
FDOC are planning to meet with
growers to talk about their budg-
et and program plans,
The FCC serves as the board
of directors for the FDOC.
Market forces driving the tax
hike include an industry hurt by
hurricanes, diseases, and rising
foreign competition,
Patty Vaccero, in advertising
with FDOC, said the citrus indus-
try has faced several hardships
over the last couple of years,
with disease issues of canker
and greening, and with two sea-
sons of hurricanes blowing fruit
off trees.

"We're talking of raising
taxes on the fruit to help keep
marketing afloat. It has been
hurt by the decrease in amount
of fruit going to market. We
need to keep in front of the con-
sumer the importance of citrus
in their diet, so, they do not for-
get. We need to continue to
increase the demand for it," she
said.
Sonny Williamson, local cit-
rus producer, said he agrees
with an increase in the taxes on
citrus products,
"Since production is down,
advertising money is down, and
the industry is trying to keep sta-
bilized and in front of the Ameri-
can consumer," he said.
He said the economic impact
is blunted with the increase in

prices.
"It looks like a stiff increase.
but I believe a stable advertising
program is very important," he
said,
On another point, Mr.
Williamson said he is waiting for
final results on the Citrus Health
Response Plan, a draft of which
was released on March 7 by the
USDA and the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture & Consumer
Services.
The draft plan is the first step
toward a new approach for
growing citrus in Florida due to
the continued spread of citrus
canker, the introduction of citrus
greening, and other future dis-
ease threats.
"Waiting for the final plan is
painful," said Mr. Williamson.

MEMORIAL: This morning (Monday) my wife and I went to Veter-
ans Park to honor our lost and still serving veterans. The ceremony
was great, the words spoken to honor our present and lost comrades
was very good. The Honor Guard by members of the R.O.T.C. was ter-
rific, they did a wonderful job, thank you. The one thing that was miss-
ing was all the Mexicans who claim they want to be a very important
part of our country and be good citizens. I did not see one of you out
there, I guess you were too busy doing the jobs we white Americans
can't or won't do. You didn't mind sitting on our memorial stones dur-
ing your protest, but you can't come out arid honor our fallen..Here's
something you probably don't know. If it wasn't for the UnitedStates
of America, there probably wouldn't be a Mexico or Canada. That's
right the only country in North America that has the guts to fight for
freedom is the United States of America, If you don't like the way your
country is run, go back and change it, we did.

JUVENILE PROGRAMS: If the public had a private web cam, in the
juvenile programs, the public would have them all dosed. The pro-
grams are a farce. It is ridiculous and something needs to be done.

FLOODING: Who do we call to stop the flooding in the Palm Creek
area? The drains are so slow.

LOVE BUGS: A question about the love bugs? Why are the love
bugs only in south Florida. None are seen in north Florida or even
Tampa. Why do we have them? (Editor's note: According to the Uni-
versity of Florida's publication "Love Bugs,in Florida," love bugs are
native to Central America. They were found in Louisiana and Texas in
the 1940s. One theory is they were accidentally transported on a cargo
ship; another is that they migrated due to environmental changes that
disturbed their habitat. They were documented by scientists over the
years as they slowly moved first to North Florida and then farther
south. They apparently prefer the warmer climate of South Florida and
thrive here. A love bug's life cycle is about six months. For most of their
lives, love bugs are in the larvae stage. They eat decaying vegetative
matter, and seem to do well in cow pastures, where they consume
cow manure. Birds can sometimes be seen "flipping" cow patties to
eat the larvae. An adult love bug only lives about 72 hours. They mate,
lay eggs, and die.}

DAVINCI CODE: I am Baptist and here we go with "The DaVinci
Code" on the History Channel. Is there any Baptist preacher that can
explain if Jesus Christ was mortal or man and does he have children at
all?

MEN'S HISTORY: I am calling about "The DaVinci Code." I do not
understand why people are so upset about this movie. Books of the
'Bible are missing. Man wrote the Bible, not women, and how do we
know if it is true? Maybe we have been deceived all along as to what
man wants us to believe in? As children we were always told that there
were three wise men. that was a man-generated idea. The Bible does-
n't say there are three. The Bible doesn't say that the forbidden fruit
was an apple. We got that from man also. It seems that man still
blames the woman for the so-called fall of the first great world. People
get over it, believe what you want to believe. It is not for me to judge
you.

DRIVERS, BE CAREFUL: School is out and the children are enjoying
their summer vacation. That means kids are on bicycles and skate-
boards. They are walking to their friends' houses and playing ball in'
the yard. Drivers should be careful when driving through.residential
areas because there are children at play. Don't go speeding through
the residential areas. Kids are impulsive. They may not always be as
careful as they should be about watching for traffic. They also may lose
control of a bicycle and fall down. Motorists should be watching out
for the kids. If you are in such a hurry, stay on the main roads. The
speed limits in residential areas are there for a reason.
