There was standing
room only during seminars
on growing your own veg-
etables last year.
But since then, a new
and larger auditorium has
been built.
Those seminars were of-
fered during the Vegetable
Garden Expo. This year,
that expo is set for Satur-
day, Aug. 21, from 9 a.m. to
1 p.m.
The second annual event
is in cooperation with the
University of Florida IFAS,
the Marion County Ex ten-

sion Service and Marion
County Master Gardeners
at the extension service of-
fice, 2232 NE Jacksonville
Throughout the 9 a.m. to
1 p.m. event, four seminars
are planned for the in-
doors and six others are
outside in the garden area.
One indoor session, at
10:10 a.m. will feature stu-
dents from Dunnellon Ele-
mentary School as they
show how "Kids Can Gar-
den" too. Advice on en-
hancing garden soil, the
best management prac-
tices to use in the garden
and what to grow will also

be offered during the day.
The sessions planned for
the Saturday event will
help first-time gardeners
and those with more expe-
rience, said Norma
Samuel, extension agent,
urban horticultural.
Over the past several
years, the agency has seen
a significant increase in
phone calls from people
having questions about
their vegetables gardens or
seeking advice, said
Samuel, adding that those
calling had prompted the
Those scheduled for the
outside will have more of a

"hands-on" feel and give
visitors the opportunity to
learn about micro-irriga-
tion, composting, growing a
variety of vegetables and
herbs and controlling the
peskiness of pests.
For gardeners in need of
a scarecrow to scare away
larger garden pests, the op-
portunity to purchase one
through silent auction is
also available. The scare-
crows will be displayed in-
side the auditorium.
Proceeds from the sale of
the scarecrows will benefit

Joh nSo tomay or

In a league of their own.
That's how Harold
"Buster" Hair who played
3rd base, shortstop and
outfielder for the Birm-
ingham Black Barons and
Kansas City Monarchs in
the Negro Baseball
League from 1953-1958
compared their experi-
ence when asked as regu-
lar, ordinary guys who

were part of an extraordi-
nary situation, while they
were playing in the
league, did they ever think
they were doing some-
thing extraordinary oth-
ers would celebrate years
later. Hair answered their
situation was much like
that of the woman's league
in the movie by that name.
They played not for
money or fame but for the
passion of the game. They
wanted to show they could
play just as good as the

major league players, they
were just not allowed.
"It was tough in those
days" says Arthur 3"Jr"
Hamilton, catcher for the
Indianapolis Clowns and
Detroit stars 1953-1959. "I
had to go through the
Negro Leagues ...the only
way I had to play ball."
"(It was hard on us,"
adds Raydell "Bo" Mad-
dix, pitcher and outfielder
for the Indianapolis
Clowns 1947-1953. "We
had to sleep on the bus

then go out and play nine
innings. Played every
day." Hamilton adds "We
had a good bus, but it
broke down one time in
Morgantown, West Vir-
ginia. We pull over and the
bus driver yells 'every-
body off the bus.' Then he
says, 'ok, now everybody
get behind it and push.' So
that's what we did." A far
cry from private jets and
five-star accommodations
lavished on today's major
league players.

So went on the hardship
stories told by each pan-
elist including Clifford
Brown, 2nd base, short-
stop for Philadelphia
Stars 1949-1951; Walter
"Dirk" Gibbons, pitcher
for the Philadelphia Stars,
New York Black Yankees
and Indianapolis Clowns,
1941-1949; Coach Billy
Reed; and AJ. Jackson,
pitcher for the Kansas

Nancy LeFevre
Thrower said she got her
dedication to service from
her father, who spent 42
years in Rotary without
missing a meeting.
"Education begins at
the dinner table," she
said. "When schools and
parents work together,
kids do better. She talked
about pay for teachers,
and saying no to state un-
funded mandates. She
said she will visit school
often and wants to edu-
cate citizens to vote. Re-
ferring to her name, she
said, "I'm a thrower and
I'm ready to pitch in."
Angie Boynton said it
was "time for us to make a
difference." She said it
was "incumbent upon us
to recognize and address
all the fatal flaws in the
education system."
Acting as a tutor, she

the schools' website and
read minutes, "And I did-
n't like what I was seeing.
Changes need to be made.
I think I'm the person who
can make them."
She also said that "edu-

worked in various capaci-
ties, especially with facil-
ities and as a purchasing
agent. "I'm very con-
cerned about the School
Board when the stimulus
money runs out." He also
said he was "not very
happy about the FCAT."
As far as parent involve-
ment, he said that ele-
mentary school help
seems to be OK, but "mid-

dle school and high
school, that is where we
have a problem." He also
spoke of making sure
there was board unity.
Dean Blinkhorn, run-
ning in District 4, is a mag-
azine editor who used to
be a teacher. He said he
realized that the tough
budget situation was "not
going away anytime soon."
He pointed out that the

stimulus money which
funded 500 teachers last
year will go away.
He promised taxpayers
that he would "make sure
(their) tax dollars were
well spent."
He also said it was im-
portant to be visible in the
community and that he
would "look forward to
working with schools in
my district."

In District 5, incumbent
Ron Crawford spoke from
experience, saying he had
worked to hold down tax
increases in the past by
using the reserve. He
talked about the building
of new Forest High

where at that time it was
built at the lowest square

Beginning in 1990, Judge
Robert W. Hodges worked
17 years as an assistant
state attorney in the 5th Ju-
dicial Circuit.
Hodges told the Chroni-
cle's editorial board re-
cently that he worked in
many counties in various
capacities before he was
appointed to his current
position as a circuit court
judge in 2007.
Hodges is running as the
incumbent against Inver-
ness attorney Denise A.

addition, he said there
were 113 juvenile cases
less than 12 months old
and 34 juvenile cases more
than 120 days old during
the last quarter ending
March 31, compared to the
232 juvenile cases less than
12 months old and 139 ju-
venile cases more than 120
days old during the same
quarter in 2007.
"This is what I've done,"
Hodges said. "I don't have
to make any promises."

1 race for the 5th Judicial
Circuit, which covers Mar-
ion, Sumter, Hernando,
Lake and Citrus counties.
The position is based in
Marion County
As an assistant state at-
torney, Hodges said he
handled major criminal
and homicide cases. As a
circuit court judge,
Hodges' docket includes
juvenile delinquency cases
and domestic violence

hearings. He also handles
detention decisions for ju-
veniles entering the juve-
nile detention facility in
Ocala, takes on depend-
ency hearings and civil lit-
igation if there is an
overflow and manages one-
eighth of the foreclosure
cases in Marion County
Hodges said he believes
he has the right personal-
ity to handle his docket
and that his record speaks
volumes about his capabil-

ities as a judge.
"I think I've proven I'm
able to do this job," he said.
In two and a half years,
Hodges said that he has
handled 4,000 juvenile
cases and more than 1,000
domestic violence hear-
He also said he had re-

Denise A Dymond Lyn
first began her law career
in 1997 when she held a po-
sition in Citrus County with
the firm of Brannen, Still-
well and Perrin.
She then opened her
own law firm in Inverness
in March 2001, which pri-
marily focused on govern-
mental, real estate and
community organizations.
Now, for a second time, she

has decided to try for a

Lyn is challenging Judge
Robert W. Hodges in the
Group 1 race for the 5th Ju-
dicial Circuit, which covers
Marion, Sumter, Her-
nando, Lake and Citrus
counties. The position is
based in Marion County
Lyn may be best known
for her representation of
the Save the Homosassa
River Alliance in two land-
use cases, the first involv-
ing the Halls River Retreat
condominium, and the sec-
ond, Homosassa Riverside
Resort. Prior to her law ca-
reer, Lyn served in the U.S.

Air Force and was a Real-
tor in Navarre.
After she started practic-
ing law, Lyn said she de-
cided to handle a wide
range of cases to help
broaden her scope in
preparation for eventually
becoming a circuit court
Lyn believes that prac-
ticing in every area of the
law is important because a
judge's docket could al-
ways change. She pointed
out that Hodges' back-
ground is strictly criminal
with very little experience
in civil or family law, ex-
cept for knowledge gained
on the bench. And while
she acknowledges han-
dling more than 4,000 juve-
nile cases in two and a half

year is impressive, she said
it is also indicative of the
complexity of the cases.
If elected judge, Lyn said
she would like to do more
to make parents more in-
volved in the juvenile
delinquency process and
encourage more mediation
in foreclosure cases.
"I have the most diverse
background," she said. "I
have a great temperament
and I have represented
many c ients My opponent
has only represented one
client in his career and
that's the state of Florida."

We prepare for our children's departures
in various ways. Early on, we change their di-

and we tell them to eat their vegetables so
they can grow big and healthy.
Then, we try to teach them to share their
toys, wash their hands often and say 'please
and thank you.'
As caring parents grooming our children
for departure, we encouraged their educa-

chases for the Clubhouse are
there for all of the neighbors
to enjoy.

The fabulous new stove for

the Clubhouse kitchen is a
far cry from the "old one"
that could not be counted
upon to be correct..as far as
the oven temperature was
concerned. Obviously, that is
a real help when there is
food to be maintained at
some special temperature.
Al Pitts and Phil Geissal
went "shopping"' and brought
back the appliances much to
the delight of Ann Bruno,
Charlene Jarvis, and Dee
McNeil, the SAC committee.
"Charlene Jarvis, Ann
Bruno, and Dee McNeill
want the HOA to know how
much it means to the success

of the SAC to have a great
support system. We also want
the homeowners of Fairfield
Village to see where their
dues are going and the good
things that the HOA is doing
for us."
A special "thank you!" goes
to Pam Bruno who provided
the transportation for mov-
ing the stove into the Club-
house (her very recognizable
truck) and her assistance to
Al Pitts as he installed the
new stove. Wonderful things

often, but sometimes
we might be a little skeptical
about the truth in those "re-
ports." Happily, I can attest to
the fact that there is both
truth and good news in the
latest reports about the co-
operative efforts between the
Fairfield Village HOA and
Several months ago, the
SAC (formerly Residents'
Club) voted to "go under the
umbrella" of the HOA of
Fairfield Village. This was
done for several very good
reasons--which need not be
explained here. Suffice it to
say that the co-operative ef-
forts seem to be very suc-
cessful and are producing
real advantages for residents
of Fairfield Village.
The SAC committee made

Sharon Tamater, coun-

a Master's from the Uni-

no long wait. I remember
as a child going with my
parents when they voted.
They went to the county
courthouse, along with
eVeryone else in the
county. I know now that
they were instilling in me
the importance of voting.
Later, when in high school,
the county placed voting
machines were set up with
dark curtain around
them so that your voting
was done in privacy. The
machines had levers be-
side each candidate and
you turned the lever beside
your choice. How times
have changed! Today, after
having name and address
verified, a computer
printed a ballot and we
took that to a small area
when we marked are
choices; after completion,
the ballot was placed into
another automated ma-
chine that accepted the
ballot and showed how
many ballots had been
placed at that location (I
was number 282).
Do you know what the
19th Amendment is? This
Amendment is the one that
gives women the "right to
vote." It is also known as
"The Susan B. Anthony
Amendment." The Amend-
ment was certified by Sec-

voted for the first time. Not
all states voted to accept
this Amendment. In fact,
Alabama, Georgia,
Louisiana, Maryland, Mis-
sissippi, South Carolina
and Virginia were
adamantly opposed to it.
The Tennessee state legis-
lators had a 48-48 tie vote
on the ratification with one

cso cael dow TohR p-
resentative Harry T Burn,
aRepublican from
McMinn County, to cast the
deciding vote. Representa-
tive Burn was only 23 years
old, so he apparently still
listened to his mother. Al-
though Mr. Burn was op-
posed to the amendment,
his mother convinced him
to approve it. With his vote,
the 19th Amendment was
Mississippi was the last
state to ratify the 19th
Amendment; this was not
done until March 22, 1984!
That's right 1984.
Wyoming was the first
state to grant voting rights
to women and was also the
first state to elect a female
governor. Nellie Ross was
elected governor in 1924.
She also served as the first

worst things that can happen
when wildlife gets into
To date, the FWC has not
gotten any further reports of
the bear family. And that's
good news indeed.

Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission
(FWC) biologists to catch a
black bear cub in Marion
County that was days away
from death. They were ulti-
mately successful, but it took
extraordinary efforts from
both FWC employees and
local residents working to-
The 6-month-old cub, its
two siblings and mother were

regular visitors to unsecured
trash containers in a small
community near Weirsdale,
in the Ocala National Forest.
One day in late July, FWC
dispatch got a call from one
of the residents concerned
about a cub running around
with a clear, industrial-size
plastic jar stuck on its head.
The jar made it almost im-
possible for the cub to eat or
The FWC's Mike Orlando,

Brian Scheick and Cathy
Connolly, and Mike Connolly,
a bear-response agent for the
agency, knew that if they did-
n't catch the cub, affection-
ately dubbed "Jarhead," it
would die, so they developed
a plan to trap it.
"It was a lot easier said
than done," Orlando said.
"The residents were really
great about calling us when
they saw the bears, but it
seemed like we were always
about 20 minutes behind."
The team set traps in dif-
ferent areas, hoping to catch
the mother and tranquilize
her, which would then allow
them to catch the cubs. Un-
fortunately, the good mother
bear refused to be tricked by
the baited trap.
After eight days of sight-
ings, two days went by when
nobody saw the bear family.
The team feared the cub may
have finally succumbed to its
condition. Ironically, the day

the team resigned to pull the
traps and head home, Or-
lando got a call from FWC
dispatch. A resident had
called to report the bear fam-
ily was back. The team
rushed back to the commu-
Orlando found the mother
and was able to shoot her
with a tranquilizer dart.
Then Orlando and Scheick
literally caught the cubs by
surprise and managed to
grab Jarhead. But the tough
little bear lived up to its U.S.
Marine moniker and did not
give up without a fight.
Eventually, they subdued
the cub long enough to get
the jar off its head, and then
let it go to rejoin its siblings.
The team, with the help of
some concerned residents,
placed the mother bear's
sleeping body in a trap, and
eventually the cubs joined

After observing the family
overnight in the trap, and
making sure it was able to
nurse, biologists released the
family in a nearby, less popu-
lated area.

Biologist Mike Orla ndo shows the mother bea r's missi ng
leg after she was tranquilized. Mike was worn out after
10 days of trying to catch this family.

Residents in the Weirsdale a rea reported to FWC the
bear with the jar on its head.
