School workshop site switched

INVERNESS -- The School Board has changed the location of its Feb. 27 workshop to discuss recent controversies concerning religion and school-related issues. School Board Chairwoman Patience Nave said Friday the meeting has been moved from Lecanto High School to Forest Ridge Elementary School. The meeting, at 5:30 p.m., was moved because of several other events going on at the same time at Lecanto on that date, Nave said.

Media group to examine ballots

INVERNESS -- Representatives from a media group will be in town Wednesday to review the Citrus County ballots that registered as undervotes and overvotes in the 2000 presidential election. The media consortium represents the St. Petersburg Times, Washington Post, New York Times and several other press outlets. It is examining similar votes throughout Florida. Citrus Supervisor of Elections Susan Gill said her office counted 163 undervotes and 54 overvotes. Elections staffers have separated those optical scan ballots from the 57,000-plus presidential ballots that were cast. Florida law says only elections workers may handle ballots, so Gill's staff must assist the consortium representatives. Gill is charging the group $77 per hour.
