According to reports, officers with the Dunnellon Police Department were conducting traffic control in the 11000 block of North Williams Street when Sgt. Jacob Gonzalez ran the tag number for a silver in color Lincoln, which showed the owner of the vehicle had a warrant had been issued for the owner of the vehicle. Sgt. Gonzalez then conducted a traffic stop in which he observed two white male subjects sitting in the front of the vehicle as well as several clothes and a hat in the rear of the vehicle Report: Argenziano to run for Congress Former Public Service Commissioner Nancy Argenziano has reportedly decided to run for Congress representing a district in the Florida Panhandle. Several media websites reported Monday that Argenziano, who also represented Citrus County in the state Legislature, sent an email to supporters saying she would run for the U.S. House of Representatives as a Democrat. Argenzianos target is first-term U.S. Rep. Stve Southerland, R-Panama City. In her e-mail, Argenziano alluded to a guest column she wrote in June for the Citrus County Chronicle in which she blasted Republican leaders in state government. The Republican party has left me, and I will run as a Democrat, she wrote. The current batch of Republican leaders have no allowance for honest people, and they demand members just follow and shut up. Argenziano said she hopes to file her paperwork by Aug. 10. Terry Arnold bond set at $20,500. Sean Wilder bond set at $10,500. Local woman to offer class about couponing Tammy Raulerson wants others to know the feeling she gets when she saves her family a bundle by using coupons. So shes going to the extreme, but not the extreme of the television show, Extreme Couponing. The mother of two will begin offering an extreme couponing class, a three-week session at the Womans Club of Dunnellon at 11756 Cedar Street in Dunnellon. Each class will last one hour and the cost for the three-week session is $30. I want to encourage other people to do it because of the savings, she explained. And now, because of the fact that youve got the inventory, youre never in need. Each three-week session will be able to accommodate 10 people at time. Those who wish to take the class and do not make the first session will be placed on a waiting list. Among the supplies that will be needed will be a 5-inch binder, 25 baseball card inserts, as well as three coupon books each week, preferably a Red Plum, a Smart Source and a Proctor & Gamble, Raulerson explained. However, she noted, if they cannot bring those three, she encourages them to bring whatever three coupon books they can. I want them to have enough coupons, so I can show them a way to organize them all, Raulerson said. At the end of each three-week session, Raulerson said shell have a give away gift basket. For more information about the class, contact Raulerson at 352361-2861 or e-mail tammy raulerson@ymail.com. Inglis man, 38, faces nine charges JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See POLICE page 3 Women use coupons to save money With a growing family, a rising cost in prices and a $200 a month budget for groceries and other household supplies, Tonya DeRose knew she had to change the way she shopped and how she spent her money. The mother of two took a direct approach to the problem, she learned about couponing. And the rest, as they say, is history. Two years ago, I became a stay at-home mom after having our daughter, DeRose explained. We couldnt afford daycare, so I had to make my own money, thats where coupons came into place. While learning the nuances of clipping coupons took time, its certainly worth the hours she puts into it each week. On average, DeRose spends up to two hours a day clipping coupons, scouring the flyers or Internet for store specials before embarking on her trips to various stores in the area. You usually have to do homework to save, stop at several different stores, take advantage of your resources, she explained. You cant just walk into Walmart or Walgreens and save a bundle; you have to go do your homework, have them organized, JEFF BRYAN/riverland NewsTonya Derose clips coupons with the assistance of her 2-year-old daughter, Ashley, at their home. DeRose began clipping coupons after the birth of her daughter. CORRECTION James Huston gives Indi, an Eastern Indigo Snake, a thumbs up at Rainbow Springs State Park.

School Districts green efforts earn national recognition Program has saved more than $11M Thanks to the energysaving efforts of students and employees of Marion County Public Schools, the district has earned national recognition for its energy savings program. Since this program started five years ago, the district has avoided and saved $11,583,825 in utility costs. Energy Education, the districts energy savings partner, presented the Chairmans Sustainability Award during a recent school board work session. The award showcases the districts success in carrying out the Transformational Energy Management process, a comprehensive peopleoriented approach to energy conservation at all levels. The districts energy education specialist, James Newkirk, works with employees to make the milestone possible. Energy saving steps include shutting off lights, unplugging electronic equipment during extended breaks, daily automated computer shutdowns, regulated heating and air conditioning, and careful computer analysis of energy uses for electricity, water, sewer, natural gas, and fuel oil. Energy dollars saved help maintain and improve schools and facilities around the district. The program is selffunded, meaning savings pay for the program and outreach efforts. To date, the district has 17 Energy Star certified schools. For more information, contact James Newkirk, energy education specialist, at 671-6932 or James.Newkirk@marion.k12.fl.us.

that possibly appeared to be a person, the report stated. During the traffic stop, Sgt. Gonzalez asked Arnold if he knew the owner and he advised yes; however, the registered owner of the vehicle was not present. At this time, Officers Bruce Robby Arnold and Aaron German arrived at the scene, the report stated. Sgt. Gonzalez then asked for Arnolds drivers license in which he handed Sgt. Gonzalez a Florida identification card, the report stated. Officers ran Arnolds personal information, which showed his license had been suspended for which he was a habitual offender. According to the report, after returning to the vehicle Officer German observed a clear plastic Gatorade bottle that had been located on the passenger side floor board upon the initial approach had been emptied out the passenger side door. Office German informed Sgt. Gonzalez and Officer Arnold the liquid in the bottle had been a clear liquid. Officer Arnold then asked the suspect to exit the vehicle in which place he was placed into handcuffs and charged with driving while license was suspended. After placing Arnold in the patrol car, authorities asked the passenger of the vehicle Wilder to exit the vehicle. During the inventory search of the vehicle, Officer German retrieved the Gatorade bottle to determine if the clear liquid substance was an alcoholic beverage, the report stated. After opening the lid, a smoke-like substance came out of the bottle in which Officer German conducted a presumptive field test of the remaining liquid, which tested positive for methamphetamines, the report stated. According to the report, Sgt. Gonzalez and Office Arnold continued their search of the vehicle when they located a pair of white socks containing four syringes and five vials of anabolic steroids. While continuing the search of the vehicle, Sgt. Gonzalez located five boxes of Sudafed, along with a Zippo butane fuel bottle, all items being methamphetamine precursor chemicals, the report stated. According to the report, authorities continued their search of the vehicle in which the glove box was locked. Sgt. Gonzalez asked Arnold how it opened to which he stated he did not know. Sgt. Gonzalez then pulled the glove box open enough to peek inside when he observed more paraphernalia at which time Sgt. Gonzalez pried open the glove box, the report stated. Inside the glove box were four balled up coffee filters in which two contained a white substance. Officer German performed a presumptive field test, which tested positive for methamphetamine, the report stated. Also inside the glove box were pH test strips. Arnold remains in the Marion County Jail in lieu of a $20,500 bond. Wilder also remains in jail. His bond is set at $10,500. Dunnellon Police Department Arrests Michelle L.

POLICE REPORTS POLICE continued from page 1 Two dead in murder-suicide A couples domestic dispute Saturday afternoon escalated into their deaths and left their friend with a bad head wound. The residents of 6439 Riverbend Road were with two of their friends when the dispute began, said Gail Tierney, Citrus County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman. It ended up becoming a murder/suicide-type situation, Tierney said. Deputies were first called to the scene a little after 3 p.m. and found the bodies of an older male and female couple with fatal gunshot wounds in the front yard. A third person was found bleeding about the head. According to a Citrus County Sheriffs Office report, deputies arrived at the scene shortly afterward and found Mark Davidson, 60, and Leona Field, 63, with fatal gunshot wounds while a close friend of the couple, Steven Snowman, 66, of Inverness, was on the ground by the driveway of the home with wounds to the head. Emergency responders pronounced Davidson and Field dead at the scene. Field suffered two gunshot wounds to the head and neck area, according to the police report. Sam Thonen Sr., a neighbor, said he heard some pops from a small caliber gun at about 3:15 Saturday afternoon and rushed outside his Lake Rousseau home to see what was going on. He said he saw the shooter, Davidson, standing in the front yard of the home at 6439 Riverbend Road. I came out I saw him, but I didnt see any weapon, Thonen said. I saw him standing there arguing, yelling, so I went in and called 911. When I came out it was too late. Thonen said he knew Field very well, and the couple had been living together for the last two years and were not married. He said Field told him that she was going to ask Davidson to leave. The relationship was over, he said. She had told us several times that she was going to get him out. The neighbor believed Davidson wanted to stay in the relationship with Field. I guess he went berserk, he said. Field worked as a land valuation specialist with the Citrus County Property Appraisers Office. Davidson previously worked for the same office but was let go in 2009 when Geoffe Greene won the election and took office. Snowman was struck with a blunt object when he intervened in the couples fight and was airlifted to Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Tierney said. His injuries were non-life-threatening. A spokesperson from the hospital said Sunday night Snowman was not listed as a patient. Sheriffs detectives are investigating the incident as an apparent murder-suicide and said a handgun was recovered in the front yard of the couples home where Davidson had turned the gun on himself. Chronicle reporters A.B. Sidibe and Cathy Kupulka and Managing Editor Sandra Frederick contributed to this report. DAVE SIGLER/For the Riverland NewsCitrus County Sheriffs deputies were called to a home on Riverbend Road in Dunnellon, where a shooting was reported at approximately 3 p.m. Saturday.

River views Politicians more hated than othersPoliticians in America are now hated more than Casey Anthony and lawyers ... and there is not a thing we can do about it! Duke Stoetzer Dunnellon Perhaps letter writers can agree to disagreeMay I suggest that Mr. Gerard Meyn and Mr. Richard Mack agree to disagree or perhaps they would consider renting a room, buying a 6-pack and working out their differences in private; enough with the letters to the editor already! E.H. Kingsman Rainbow Springs Politicians should put aside own agenda, support presidentMy husband and I have watched with great interest at the goings-on in Washington these past few months or quite honestly years. It appears the people who were voted into office to do the work of the people are merely sticking strictly to their own agenda and thumbing their noses at President Barack Obama. If our president were white, there would be no problem. The majority of biased, un-Christian politicians running our country is astronomical. Come on Americans step up to the plate and support a great man who is working for the oppressed, underpaid, underfed needy Americans. Put aside the fact that he is a black man. His color has absolutely nothing to do with his ability to do the work of the people all people.

The book store is staffed 100 percent Status on city of Dunnellon utilities Childs play W hen I go out with my mom, I am often the youngest person in the room. This is odd to say because I am almost 50. When you hang out with an 82-yearold, 50 is young. A few weeks ago someone asked me where do single people my age hang out in Dunnellon? I said it beats the crap out of me. If you find out, let me know. So I was a bit perplexed with what to do when my brother Barry, niece, Rose, and her daughter, Charlotte, came to visit. What does one do with a 2-year-old in a geriatric town? Between the rain, heat and red ants playing outside is not a great option. Not only did I need to entertain a very active 2-year-old, but I also needed to keep her very citified 30-year-old mother busy. Rose thinks Dunnellon is the middle of no-where. She is not burned out enough to realize that the middle of no-where is paradise. I give her another 10 years up north and shell be sick of the rat race. Before I even picked them up at the airport, I was given a mission. My sister-in-law, Charlene, called and said Do you know of anyone who has a stroller you can borrow while Charlotte is visiting? Between the car seat and play bed (Charlotte doesnt sleep in a big bed yet) Rose was paying more than $100 in fees to the airline. It took me a minute to think of anyone with small kids. My friend, Tammy, came to mind. She has two boys. I wouldnt care if the stroller was blue as long as it worked. I couldnt get a hold of Tammy. I didnt want to buy a brand new stroller since they were going to be here less than a week. I decided to try Baby Boom Consignment on East Pennsylvania Avenue. Bobbi hooked me up with an inexpensive pink stroller. It was perfect. I picked it up on the way to the airport. Now you have to understand I have not been around a 2-year-old in decades. I barely remember my nieces and nephews being that young. Now they are older than me! Not sure how that happened. I arrived at the airport with time to spare. I popped open the trunk and pulled out the stroller. I had no clue how to open the thing. I pulled bars, looked for a lock, pushed every piece of plastic on the thing. No luck! Along came a mom and her 7year-old daughter. I asked if they could help me. She couldnt figure it out either. We headed for the escalator and there was a young couple with their two small kids in a stroller. The 7-year-old girl said: Can you help that lady open her stroller? The father came over, pushed this, pulled that and bam, it opened! After being rescued by the 7-year-old I proceed to get strange looks as I walked through the airport with an empty stroller. Three different people asked me where the baby was. As the forth nosey person asked me I said I sold her and walked away. I finally found the three tired travelers and we headed back to Dunnellon. I didnt need to worry about entertaining Charlotte. She keeps herself quite busy. In fact, she entertains us. Charlotte talks from the minute she gets up to the minute she closes her eyes. Truth be told she even talks in her sleep. After a few decades, you forget how active a 2-year-old can be. I was glad we got the stroller. It was the only way to keep Charlotte seated. If you ever need a stroller for a visiting two year old I recommend Baby Boom Consignment and the Strollers 101 class. The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

When it was first brought to the public, no formal studies were done. When the importance of having a study that would predict the likelihood of adequate service purchasers was stated by a member of the public we were told a study of that magnitude would be too costly. Instead leaflets were handed out at a public Chamber of Commerce function. Later, a mailing went out asking if people would be interested, not if they would be likely to change to this service, if the city should decide to go ahead with the idea. After the leaflets and letters had been circulated, we were told at a public meeting that so many of the fliers returned with positive results they simply quit counting the responses. We were told that long before they finished reviewing the returns they had 1,000 people expressing interest, the staff therefore believed they would have the 1,600 subscribers needed to successfully start the enterprise without any problem. A number of people spoke to the council pointing that they had filled out the letters sent to area residents stating they found the idea interesting, but that did not mean they would necessarily be willing to sign-up for the service. However, it appeared to me that when counting probable customers anyone who expressed interest was assumed to be willing to sign up for the service. That mailing to local residents included information regarding the proposed savings that would accrue to subscribers. The original information, as best my memory serves, promised a package of entry level television, telephone service and high-speed internet for $99. This was to include a discount for bundling the three services. Later, a brochure came out with prices for the least expensive plan for TV, Internet and telephone with a long list of included features with individual costs totaling about $105 and including an offer of $10 discount for bundling the three services. The most recent incarnation of the plan is contained in a brochure that is, as far as I know, still available at the Greenlight of Dunnellon office. It lists intended services, no prices and no date for availability. But now the nice young man at the desk by the entry can tell you it is $200 to hook up to the service and point to examples mounted on the wall of how the hook up is done. If you go there, you may want to take a look at the TV purchased to demonstrate how wonderful the TV service is going to be In July 2010, a team made up of Lisa Algierie, city manager; Jan Smith, finance director; Jessie Mason, then-IT manager; and Marsha Segal-George, assistant city attorney; published a study titled City of Dunnellon Telecommunications Feasibility Study. Presumably this was done in order to obtain financing. Most of these persons were well known to local residents. Mr. Mason, new to the city, had been presented to us as a person knowledgeable in regard to supervising the formation and implementation of this type of enterprise system. He was presented as totally capable of managing this undertaking in concert with and under the guidance of Ms. Algierie. This we were told was based on his experience in Valparaiso, Fla., where he had worked with Ms. Algierie. It appeared that his experience with the communications system in that city was the primary reason he was brought to the city by Ms. Algierie. When I called the city of Valparaiso and asked in what capacity Mr. Mason had served, I was told that he started as a line technician, and promoted to customer service representative prior to leaving employment there. The above study gives four examples of successful municipalities and four examples of unsuccessful municipalities. Of those deemed successful, one Lafayette La., population 206,976 (as of July 2008) last year transferred $19 million dollars to the general fund and is city owned and operated. Two, Wilson N.C., approximately 50,000 residents city owned and operated does not indicate what if any profit or loss came to the city. Three, Chattanooga, Tenn., launched in 2008 and began services in September 2009, no income information given. It is owned What is the back-up plan if Greenlight fails? T he city provides good quality drinking water to its customers from two wells located in the city. However, many of the pipes are old and in need of replacement. Some of the pipes are 80 years old. Additionally, the city has two major issues that impact the delivery of good quality drinking water to its customers. The first issue concerns the water pressure on the east side of Rainbow River. It is very low and insufficient to fight fires. Recent fire-flow pressure was measured at below acceptable standards. This situation has been in existence for a number of years and those residents affected have just been lucky. Low fire-flow water pressure means that homeowners and business owners are at a higher level of risk as to fire loss due to the inability to sustain water pressure to adequately fight fires. In addition, they pay a higher insurance premium. The second issue concerns the water main located in the middle of U.S. 41 that was installed over 50 years ago. If it were to burst, the water supply would be cut off. Emergency repairs would require a major construction project on U.S. 41 to repair or replace the line, causing traffic delay in addition to shutting off water to city residents. The city currently does not have a back-up source of water for these types of emergencies. We have two water towers used for storage. Only one is in current use, the other tower is in dilapidated condition and used only for backup emergencies. The cost of repairing the tower is not feasible and needs to be removed with a new water storage tank located elsewhere in the city. A new well and storage tank on the east side of the river would solve two of the citys major problems, providing a backup water source for emergencies and improving the pressure on the east side of the river. The state is now taking applications for a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). This $650,000 grant can be used for infrastructure such as water lines. The city currently does not have available land suitable for a well on the east side of the river. However, Marion County has a well at the airport that can provide the pressure necessary to fight fires. City officials are working with the county to purchase water at a bulk rate for emergency situations. This solution is mutually beneficial to the city and the county as it will provide redundancy to each water system. Connecting to the airport will meet the short-term goals of providing a backup water system and adequate pressure. In the long term, the city will search for suitable land for a city well and storage tank. The editor of the Riverland News recently criticized the city in an editorial for pursuing the CDBG grant and not pursuing a grant to purchase Nine Island Cove. His suggestion was that the city should wait and apply for a CDBG grant in the future. In my opinion, solving major safety issues that affect our citizens and their homes and/or businesses requires immediate attention. Nine Island Cove is a beautiful property located on the Withlacoochee River adjacent to the Dunnellon Middle School.

Again, thank you all. Sincerely,Barbara Caban, President Friends of the Dunnellon Public Library by the city and operated by a vendor. Four, Powell, Wyo., is a small city of only 5,500 residents. A publicprivate partnership that paired the city with a network service provider and a municipal broadband network facilitator. It does not include specific monetary information, but states economic development and jobs. Those deemed unsuccessful are Marietta, Ga., Never planned to serve the mass market after an outlay of $34 million it was sold to American Fiber Systems for $11 million; two, Lebanon, Ohio, had 60 percent market share, in the report they were said to be in discussions to sell to Cincinnati Bell. No monetary information given; three, Ashland, Ore., hybrid coaxial system in 1999, underpricing relative to cost. It was sold in 2006 to an ISP. There was no indication of profit or loss related to the sale included in the citys study; and four, Burlington, Vt., population 42,417 in 2010, started small service to city buildings, expanded to voice, data, and video to residents. Had 4,600 customers, but was not growing fast enough incurred $50 million in debt. A blue ribbon committee recommended restructuring. On Nov. 20, the Ocala Star Banner published an article noting that Dunnellon is teaming up with the software giant Microsoft and global Communications firm Motorola to deliver services via fiber optic network. The city is one of three test sites to launch the network. No one has informed the citizens of this city what happened to this arrangement. The article further states, which staff also told the citizens, The hosted media room or brains of the system will be provided to the city at a cost of $250,000, discounted from the $1 million-plus full price tag, and the system as well as installation of the of the fiber optic network will be paid through a $7.3 Million private loan. The loan, at 3.6 percent interest, will be paid back over 15 years. Is the city still working with Motorola and Microsoft? If not, what happened to change that arrangement and what effect does any change have on the costs of starting such a system? At that time, we were still being told a package of cable television, Internet and home phone service would be under $100 a month. Now Ms. Algierie has requested an OK for a pricing study. The feasibility study prepared by the staff assumes a bundle of video, voice and data and indicates a consumer rate of $99.95 per month for the service. Yet, at my last visit to Greenlights office, I was told we did not yet have contracts with any service providers, nor a definitive listing of what the city planned to include in the individually offered services. At this point, as of June 30, according to the City Greenlight of Dunnellon has spent $2,299,818.38. Bond payments are soon to start coming due. In accordance with the citys agreement with Regions Bank, if we as a city do not have an income from the utility to pay the accounts as they become due, the bank has a claim on revenues from the citys franchise fee, the communications service tax, the 1/2 cent sales tax, the sanitation revenues, as well as revenues from the state shared revenue accounts. In 2010, our property taxes yielded $1,064,350. This tax, by law, cannot be used for this purpose. The other taxes totaled $1,417,595. This is well over half of the citys income. If we can not pay the amount due on these Bonds from associated sinking funds they will be paid out of the excise taxes. Series C bonds come also come due this November (Fiscal Year 2012; the fiscal year changes Oct. 1, not January 2012). Bonds A and B also are coming due in November of Fiscal Year 2012. Payment on Bond A due in November of fiscal year 2012 is $123,874.85. Payment on Bond B also due in November of Fiscal Year 2012 is $524,292.78. Whatever has been taken from Bond C is also due this November. Series C Bonds have a variable rate that can change from day to day, so we really do not know what the final cost of this loan will be. Since we have no income the enterprise fund for Greenlight, according to the resolution, the money will come from our excise taxes leaving the city very short on general funds from which to operate the city. When I asked fairly early on if the city had applied for any grants to assist in the funding of this enterprise, I was told no such funding was available. Having spent a few minutes online, I found several articles regarding stimulus funding or other forms of assistance for rural communities to help with developing and paying at least in part for these systems. The feasibility study of July 2010 makes no mention of Dunnellon teaming up with software giant Microsoft, nor global communications firm Motorola. Yet that information was given to the Ocala Star Banner for an article published Nov. 20, 2010. We are told the city is currently unable to find a source for the needed fiber optic cable. Might that not be the case were we operating under a stimulus backed contract? Would working in league with Microsoft and Motorola have made a difference? The staff and council have been asked on more than one occasion if they had a back up plan in case the plans for Greenlight Enterprise do not appear to be working out well. Even when a verbal request for public information was given at a public meeting, no back up plan surfaced, no answer was given to the question. We were consistently told that this plan was well thought out and the staff and council were very confident there would be no failure. They insisted those who failed in starting such an enterprise made mistakes and we were more knowledgeable and would not make mistakes. Resolution 2010-21 spells out the banks back up plan for receiving payments on the issued Bonds if Greenlight has not produced adequate revenues. While this resolution was available from the city upon request, we all know most citizens do not read all city resolutions. I believe the public generally feels that if something is of great importance officials will make every effort to completely inform. It would certainly have been nice if citizens had been informed in open meetings that the banks plan was to attach our excise taxes in order to collect what under the contract is rightfully theirs. It would have been appropriate to hold well advertised informational meetings for the citizens on a resolution that was to put the city in dept for more than $7 million. It would have been appropriate to give the local press releases regarding not just the intended development of a new enterprise, but what was involved in the financing of that enterprise. If the city has a plan for meeting the bond payments other than through the excise taxes that normally go into the general fund to support the city and pay for its needs, now is the time to let us all know what that plan is.

I usually live life on an even keel. I once had an odd keel, but fortunately, I had the good sense to throw it back into the water from whence it came. I take pride in maintaining a certain sense of balance in my life. But, there are those times when all balance is thrown out the window. Just this past week when I was enjoying an unusually wonderful sense of balance in my life, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage changed my whole demeanor. We were watching the news on television. When I say we, I am not insinuating in any regard that I was paying any attention whatsoever to what was happening on the television screen. I usually have a book in hand I am perusing while I am allegedly watching TV. Out of nowhere, I heard her exclaim, They just wouldnt do that. I continued in my book and paid no attention to her. What in the world is wrong with those people? I heard her say. By now, my curiosity had gotten the best of me and I laid my book down and said, What has got you all riled up tonight? Didnt you hear what they just said? Im sorry; I was looking at my book. Well, she said in a very disgusted manner, the government is thinking about taxing junk food. Can you imagine anything more ludicrous than that? I always like to, at least try to think of the positive side of things. With the way our beloved politicians have been going these days, it is very hard to find the positive side. Although I am not in favor of taxes, I know that as a citizen I need to pay my fair share. I have no problem with that. Im not, however, in favor of tacking on some new taxes. Whats wrong with the old ones? Then my wife said something that turned my thinking all the way around. You do know what junk food is, dont you? That was a crazy thing to say. Of course, I knew what junk food was. I stay away from that food category and pride myself in eating healthy food every day. No junk food for me, thank you. I shrugged it off at the time and replied to my wife, Oh well, the government has to do whatever it has to do in times like these. You do know that Apple Fritters are considered junk food by our government? And when they start taxing junk food they will be taxing your Apple Fritters. They dont. They wouldnt. They better not! At this point, my even keel was experiencing some very turbulent tendencies. I try to be a good citizen but there comes a time when a person has to put his foot down. I had come to the point where as that old philosopher who said, Thats all I can stands, I cant stands no more! What I want to say to good old Mr. Uncle Sam is simply; do not touch my Apple Fritters. Some things in life are sacred and for somebody to fool with them will only rile the anger of those religious people devoted to Apple Fritter Veneration. Believe me; you do not want the Apple Fritter Gang to get riled. The Creed of these Apple Fritter followers is simply, an Apple Fritter a day keeps the blues away. Nothing cheers the day like starting it with a freshly baked Apple Fritter.

have your ads out, have a budget, know what you need, go get it for best price. You cant do that without doing homework. People just start couponing, but if you dont do the leg work, youre not going to see a lot in savings. You might save 50 cents at one store, but at this store, theyll pay you to walk out with same item. Since starting her venture, she explains how she can gather $900 worth of products on the same $200-amonth budget. Her budget conscious decisions certainly caught the attention of family, friends and, of course, the cashiers and managers at the various stores where she shops. I made friends with most of them, she said of the cashiers. They want to see how much I save and for how much. They participate in the game, they get excited for me to see how much I pay out of pocket. People are amazed by the savings. I used to buy everything that was a generic; now Im getting name brand items and sometimes theyre paying me to walk out the door with it. It just blows peoples mind, they dont understand how I do it. Her husband, John, wasnt sold on the idea when she first started couponing. He said, youre wasting your time, he didnt grasp it, she explained. But when he noticed I could stock up on the items were always using and not have to buy it for the next six months, he was like, OK, this could work. Im just stretching my dollar. For those concerned she clears shelves of items like the woman on Extreme Couponing, she said dont worry. DeRose explained she buys what her family needs, no more, no less. Theyve given couponing a bad reputation, she said. I do not like that show. Who needs a 1,000 tubes of toothpaste? Unless youre donating it, you dont need that. And if you really need a lot, go to the manager and tell them you know the item will be on sale and ask them to order you an extra case. I dont want other people to do without because I was greedy; so I limit myself, because I want to share the joys of couponing. Tammy Raulerson got the couponing bug by watching the Extreme Couponing more than four months ago. I would say that I probably spend about six hours a week working on it, she said. I would say, that, the very first time, I got everything wrong, I had the product wrong, the wrong coupon, the wrong store, but that is when I learned to key in the whole deal. You have to be very, very organized, to make this whole entire process work. Now that Im organized, its so easy. Also critical knowing each stores policy. Theyre all different, Raulerson noted. Now that shes on a roll, Raulerson explained shes saving anywhere from $400 to $1,200 a month using coupons. She said she purchases $10 worth of papers every week to collect the coupons she needs for her shopping endeavors. Cashiers can make you or break you, she said. They cant stand the fact youre walking out the door with all of these products for free. Theres a reason youre able to obtain it, but if you dont put the work and have the drive youre not going to be successful; you have to be very organized. You learn, you learn. Tiffany Lees soon-to-be mother-in-law, Judy Miley, got her hooked on couponing. I was doing it a little bit here and there, just doing it a little bit at a time, Lee explained. I was just buying basic stuff, such as deodorant, tooth paste, etc. Then I realized I could use them for groceries and it just escalated from there. Now, she has four papers to collect coupons from, including the Riverland News and the Citrus County Chronicle. She explains she buys two other papers on Sundays and she receives unused coupons from coworkers. Her initial savings of $25 to $30 a month has ballooned into savings of almost $200 a month. The savings certainly caught the attention of her fianc, Mike Miley, an officer with the Dunnellon Police Department. He thought I was crazy at first, he still thinks I am, she joked. He didnt think it was that big of a deal at first, but then when I really showed how much we saved, he actually got really excited. I remember the first time I really did it, my bill was $210, and had gotten it down to $78. problems I have to face during the day, if I start with an Apple Fritter the day seems to go much better. Now, Mr. Uncle Sam, let me explain some of the facts of life to you. First, Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness is one of the most famous phrases in the United States Declaration of Independence and considered by some as part of one of the most well crafted, influential sentences in the history of the English language. These three aspects are listed among the unalienable rights or sovereign rights of man. Everybody knows that the phrase the pursuit of happiness, is a reference to Apple Fritters. No more pure form of happiness exists then enjoying a freshly baked Apple Fritter. And another thing, why blame the lowly Apple Fritter for the debt problem? I have been associated with Apple Fritters most of my life and I have never known an Apple Fritter to spend money it does not have. I have given this a lot of thought. Apple Fritters are not responsible for the debt problem in our country but rather politicians are responsible. My thought is simply this. Instead of considering Apple Fritters as junk food, why not consider politicians as junk politicians and tax them. That would make much more sense. Out in the real world everybody operates along these lines; if you create a debt, you have an obligation to pay that debt and not shove it off on somebody else. The only ones who do this are all those Junk Politicians who have no sense of how much a dollar is really worth let alone where it comes from. I still stand by the words of Jesus. And he (Jesus) said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesars, and unto God the things which be Gods (Luke 20:25 KJV). Mr. Uncle Sam, touch my Apple Fritter at your own peril. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, 1471 Pine Road, Ocala, FL 34472.

The Southwest Florida Water Management District Governing Board Tuesday adopted its proposed fiscal year 2012 (FY2012) millage rate. The proposed FY2012 millage rate of 0.3928 mill takes into account the merger of the budgets of the Districts eight Basin Boards into the Governing Board, and the $108 million cap on ad valorem property tax collections passed by the Florida Legislature. FY2012 will run from Oct. 1, 2011, through Sept. 30, 2012. The Governing Board merged the budgets of the Districts eight Basin Boards into the Governing Board in May. The merger was implemented to increase efficiency of operations and reduce costs, and is projected to save $350,000 to $400,000 annually. Gov. Rick Scott in June signed legislation that caps the taxes Floridas five water management districts can assess on residential and commercial properties. For the owner of a $150,000 home with a $50,000 homestead exemption, the FY2012 Districtwide tax would be $39.28 a year, or about $3.27 per month. The proposed FY2012 millage rate adopted by the Governing Board will be used by county property appraisers when mailing out Truth in Millage (TRIM) notices of proposed property taxes to residents. Two statutorily required public TRIM hearings on the Districts total budget will be held in September. The first will be Sept. 13 at 5:01 p.m. at the Districts Tampa Service Office. The governors office and the state legislature will review and approve the budgets of all five water management districts before the second and final public hearing. The Districts second and final TRIM hearing will be at 5:01 p.m. Sept. 27 at the Districts Brooksville Headquarters. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Governing Board will formally adopt the final millage rate and budget. The public is welcome to attend any Governing Board meeting to provide comment on the proposed budget. The adopted FY2012 millage rate and budget, in comparison with FY2011, are outlined in the following table. birthday party for Indi came about when Sharon Huston, a park volunteer, took note of what Homosassa Springs State Park does for Lu, its resident hippo. Each year, park officials there host a birthday part for Lu, so Huston thought why not do the same for Indi. It was Sharons idea, explained Nicky Aiken, park service specialist. A lot of people are terrified of snakes, especially the indigo; but she thought this was kind of a neat way to highlight Indi and keep it in line with our summer program. Shes to blame for the great idea. Its pretty cool to have this opportunity to sort of have fun with an animal that some people may be uncomfortable with; pull him out of his home and let the kids see him. Huston said the idea really came when she was doing research on Marsha Bliven, Indis resident caretaker, about the same time Homosassa Springs State Park hosts Lus birthday party. I was surprised to find (Indi is) only two days older than my grandson, she explained, noting Indis home originally started at the Citrus County-based state park. Indi is the only wild animal we take care of; we built him a home. Houston also believes this is an opportunity to educate children and adults of the importance of Indi. We dont want kids to be afraid of snakes, she said, noting the writers fear of the reptiles. We really, really want to educate the kids. Its important you learn the difference between Indi and other snakes. Thats what were going to do with Indis birthday as well. The Eastern Indigo snake, a cold-blooded reptile, is the longest snake native to the United States and is a glossy blue-black color. The lower face and chin may be black, light gray or red. An Indigo typically will measure approximately 8 1/2 feet in length. Indis nose and chin are red and he is now nearly 7 feet-long according to his February shedding. The snake feeds on small mammals, frogs, toads and other snakes. An Indigo will eat rattlesnakes as well as coral snakes and other venomous pit vipers. They are immune to the poisonous venom. They swallow prey whole by unhinging the jaw and moving muscles in the neck and body to further digest the food. Indi resides in a glassfronted habitat that faces the veranda at the Rainbow Springs State Park headsprings.
