Greenlight testing at friendlies Greenlight Dunnellon Communications is up and running, for the most part. City Manager Lisa Algiere announced Monday that Greenlight is now testing at friendly locations in areas such as Sateki Village, Blue Cove and River Retreat. Among those testing the system in Blue Cove include Mayor Fred Ward and Councilwoman Penny Fleeger. We are also trying to get some test sites in Dunnellon Heights and The Grenada, Algiere explained. We have about 10 to 12 test sites and testing usually takes two to three weeks. Once we are satisfied with the testing we will begin offering services. Blue Cove will probably be the first neighborhood, then the Grenada. Algiere also noted she planned to introduce a new rate schedule at Wednesdays City Council Workshop. Algiere said most of the residential stays the same; however, the city has added a 5 Mbs Internet service and it is offering discounts for bundling that gives cusFeds clear way for migration to resume Whoopers had been grounded, but given special approval CRYSTAL RIVER The pilots and young whooping cranes grounded late last month en route to their Florida winter homes have been cleared to resume flying. The Federal Aviation Administration announced recently it has provided a one-time waiver to Operation Migration, a conservation organization trying to re-establish an Eastern flyway or route for whoopingcranes by teaching young birds how to make the flight. The Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge and the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge in Wakulla County are the destinations the flyers and their young students are trying to reach. Operation Migration ran into trouble with the FAA because it pays salaries to pilots. FAA regulations say sport planes a category that sometimes includes aircraft of exotic design can only be flown for personal use. We will be glad to have them, said Michael Lusk, manager of the Crystal River Wildlife Refuge. Lusk said the cranes could get here in 10 days or it may take up to a month. It all depends on the weather conditions, Lusk added. Currently, the flock remains grounded in Franklin County, Ala., because of inclement weather. FAA officials notified the conservation groups pilots in late November that the agency had opened an investigation.

However, this former police officer, wont be chasing down bad guys or writing citations. Instead hell be serving as the chaplain for the agency as well as other city employees who might need his service. Im ecstatic, said Anthony, who pastors at Cross at the River Cowboy Church. Im ecstatic about being back with the police officers. I didnt think Id ever wear a badge again. Its an absolute blessing. His first journey with law enforcement came to a close in 1991 after having worked for the Belle Glade Police Department for five years. Prior to that, he had worked a year with the Florida Department of Corrections. However, his personal battle with alcohol never let him return to law enforcement. In 2000, with the help of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Anthony won his battle with addiction. I feel like my life has come full circle, he explained. I feel like I can be there for the officers, and were going to be JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsPastor Ed Anthony of Cross at the River Cowboy Church is sworn in Sunday as the chaplain for the Dunnellon Police Department. Hes the first chaplain in department history. Ed Anthony sworn in as police departments first-ever chaplain JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See PASTOR page 3 Community pays tribute to Dr. King A cold, crisp winter morning did nothing to chill the spirits of those who gathered Monday morning to pay tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., one of the most influential persons of the 20th century. Members of area churches in the community, city dignitaries, as well as many others made the trek from McDonalds, south along U.S. 41 to Ernie Mills Park on Bostick Street. Once there, the celebration of the efforts made famous by Dr. King throughout the 1960s came to life. And as the temperatures rose, so did the spirit of the crowd as speeches were delivered and soulful songs filled the air of Ernie Mills Park for the better part of the morning into the early afternoon. As the colors were presented by the Dunnellon High School Junior ROTC, the wind wistfully blew the American flag as Anita Williams opened the event with the Star Spangled Banner.

And by going all in, it means the Dunnellon Police Departments Polar Pigs, as well as Cadence Banks Piggy Bankers will plunge into 60-degree water in a wave pool at the third annual Polar Plunge at Aquatic Park Saturday in Orlando. Its the second year each team will participate in the fundraiser, which generated more than $190,000 for the annual Special Olympics games in May at the Wild World of Sports Resort at Walt Disney World. So far, the Dunnellon Police Department is in the top 10 in fundraising statewide for the Polar Plunge after raising about $1,700 a year ago. In 2011, the agency finished 13th overall in the state, donating more than $13,000 to the nonprofit organization. Police Chief Joanne Black said its not her agency thats raising the money, its the community supporting the cause. Dunnellon raised more than $13,000, she explained. We were just the ones who dropped the check off. Ive always said this about this community, theyre great. They really step up. Blown away by the event a year ago, Black said she and number of her officers and staff are excited about returning. She even said a few of her officers who were working a year ago will make trek this year as others who participated last year will be working. Black said all of those who participate in Special Olympics events volunteer their time to the cause. We had a blast last year, she said. We werent sure what to expect, but it was a blast. We had the chance to meet several of the athletes who participate in the games, and to see the smiles on their faces at the Plunge was worth it all. To donate to the Polar Plunge or join the cause, visit www.firstgiving. com, then search for the Dunnellon Police Polar Pigs. there for the city employees. I feel there was a need to be there for them. People dont understand officers have issues that cause addictions, because they dont have an outlet. They have to maintain this persona that theyre unbeatable, that they are a superhero. But there are times when they need someone they can sit down with and tell them something is bugging them. They might have supervisors send them to counseling; other offices might think youre being weak. Thats simply not the case. Despite the storied history of the community, Police Chief Joanne Black said her research of the department shows this will be the first time the department has had a chaplain. It will also be the first time a pastor from the Cowboy Church Alliance will serve as a chaplain. Ive always wanted to bring a chaplain into the ranks, Black said, noting its a volunteer position. We were determined to do it this year. Black said she first approached Anthony about serving in the voluntary role after some initial discussion about the need for a chaplain. She said his background with law enforcement, plus his duties as a fulltime pastor made it a perfect fit. He has been involved with the community since his boots hit the pavement, Black said, noting after he started the Cross at the River Cowboy Church, he assisted the department on many fundraisers and his church partnered with the agency during the Cops for Kids program. He is very approachable, has a great sense of humor and has a heart of gold. He is very passionate about helping others and he will be an asset to this agency and city. Anthony believes his time serving in the U.S. Marine Corps and as a SWAT and narcotics officer will help him minister to those in the agency when needed, as well as to those with the city going through personal struggles. Being there for them, knowing they can come talk to me and knowing it remains confidential, he explained. I think thats important. That, and I understand what theyre feeling, what theyre going through. I think I can give them a feeling of relief when they spill some of this. Were here for the city, but I also believe this is an incentive for pastors to step out from their rodeo or church arena into the city arena. Thats the way it should be. While Dunnellon might not have the shootings and major crime of big cities, there are instances, Anthony said, which he believes his life experiences would prove helpful. A suicide in February 2011 was the first suicide worked by three officers at Dunnellon, he noted. It reminds me of the first time I ever had to deliver a death notice, he recalled. We didnt have a chaplain to assist me, so I was on my own. I was unable to leave the mother because of the intense pain and crying she was going through. I didnt have a chaplain to help me separate from it. Sometimes, officers in these situations have to go home and have no one talk to. I was taught in the academy to leave it in the station, but when you have no one to talk to about it, the end result is you dump it on someone, mainly your spouse. Who do you talk to?

River views Boycotting Dunnellon businesses wrong messageI am appalled at the idea of some Rainbow Springs residents wanting to boycott the businesses of Dunnellon in retaliation to the purchase of Rainbow Springs Utilities by the city of Dunnellon. I would venture to say that most of the owners are not Dunnellon City residents and have no vote or say in what the city does. They are great supporters of the community when it comes to donating for charities and local fundraisers. We do not need more empty stores. We need growth to provide more employment opportunities. Please patronize our local merchants. Carl F. Boos Rainbow Springs Editorial was poignant, but ask yourself moreI appreciate the points in your well reasoned and thoughtful editorial in the Jan. 12 edition. Make no mistake about it the residents of the surrounding Dunnellon area know that the small business owners of Dunnellon are not responsible for the mismanagement and bad decisions of city leaders. The registered voters who reside inside the city limits are the ones who voted for the City Council. The city registered voters are the only ones with the power to get rid of this current city management. I believe the mayor, other council members and city manager all have made bad decisions without consideration of residents or surrounding neighborhood input. I agree with your editorial, there is a disease in Dunnellon. The disease is bad city management, terrible finance decisions without citizens input and an arrogant attitude of no regard for the ethos of their community. The disease has spread so far and fast that fast action is needed. The city registered voters have the cure for this problem, it is their votes. It is incumbent upon the voters of Dunnellon to get rid of the current administration as soon as possible. The sooner the current city management is gone; you might be able to save your city. The city and surrounding areas will long live with the legacy of bad finance decisions made by the city management. Here are seven questions that everyone reading this should answer honestly to judge how profound the bad decisions of this city management are, assuming you have read the last three Riverland News editions. Question 1: Would you locate your business within Dunnellon city limits, given past events and management of city government. Past actions are indicative of future actions Question 2: Given the uncertain future of city finances and their option to raise rates, would you purchase a house within the city limits? Question 3: Would you want to be a neighbor to Dunnellon, in which its leaders will consider you a revenue source given the opportunity? Question 4: Should a small city with an eroding tax base take on millions of dollars of debt with grand schemes, rushed decisions and very poor questionable data on ROI (Greenlight)? Question 5: Do you think the already mismanaged and costly Greenlight venture will bring in anywhere the projected (projected how?) revenue? The Chamber asks residents to not boycott business Let it be M y article about my grandson that I had planned for this week will have to wait. Theres something more urgent right now; something I feel very strongly about. Even my own mother said I had to do it my first controversial column. Some will love it, some will hate it, and I promise you will read all about my precious grandson next week. OK, here goes. Why do people love to hate Tim Tebow? I watched the Bronco vs. Steelers game in awe, but then was astounded and disappointed the next day by the comments I heard or read such as, hes a fake, he got lucky, he thinks hes the greatest player there ever was, hes a punk or hes full of himself. What? Are we talking about the same guy? In 2008, I went with my dad and my youngest daughter, Alicia, to see the Gators celebrate their National Championship. A rather unknown young man stepped up to the microphone and began to speak about life, about his family and about his God. It was quite a show. All I saw was goodness. All I still see is goodness. Is he the best quarterback there ever was? Of course not. Is he one of the best? I have no idea. All I know is that he strives for perfection and tries to live a good life and he loves God. Isnt that all we really need to know? Lets not forget, this is a very young man were all talking about. This is also his first full year starting in the NFL, and hes from Florida. Cant we all just try to like him? In a country where our leaders and our mentors are sometimes on drugs and often cheating on their wives, isnt this a refreshing change? You wont read about Tebow doing these things; hes an all around good guy. He helps under-privileged children all over the world, he treats people with respect and kindness and he believes in God. End of story. Are people threatened by his faith? Does it make people uncomfortable to see him kneel and pray the way it does when mothers choose to breast feed in public? What are we scared of anyway? Is it so hard to believe that he could really be sincere? Or have we become so jaded and so cynical that this guy must have an agenda? When somebody acts different or gets too much positive attention, people are pretty quick to hate. Is it fear or jealousy or just disbelief? We all want our children to have role models. Do we want them to look up to a person like Tim Tebow or do we want them to worship Kanye West? How about Jerry Sandusky? Im sure many still worship Tiger Woods and trying to separate his private life from his professional. We make excuses for the John Edwards of the world. No excuses needed for this young man. Ninety-four million people read a bible verse because Tebow wrote it in his eye black. The Steelers-Broncos game was the most watched wild-card game since 1988. He inspired 9,420 tweets per second post-OT touchdown. Even though Beyonce and Jay-Z had their baby the same night, more people were interested in Tebow and what he stands for. This is all positive news. Even if you arent a fan of the NFL, you can still find inspiration in him. I know there are plenty of good guys out there. Drew Brees, John Travolta and Steve Jobs come to mind, and yes maybe the media is making too much of this guy. But thats what sells and The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

One is attracting industry to the airport to generate good paying jobs and increase the citys tax base. A key element in attracting business and industry is a strong infrastructure. It is important for the city to engage in economic development rather than hope that something will happen. Today, our childrens expectation of returning to Dunnellon to work and raise a family after college or career training is dismal. We need to prepare for an economic recovery and aggressively recruit industry to our community. Currently, we are partnering with Marion County, EDC, and the Chamber of Commerce on economic development. The purchase of Rainbow Springs utility strengthens the citys system and helps promote economic development. Many benefits are realized from this purchase. The customer base doubles minimizing necessary rate increases. A sewer connection can be made between Rio Vista and Rainbow Springs. Interconnecting the systems will create redundancy. Future expansion to connect riverfront properties onto sewer is possible. Available capacity is increased. The city uses a tiered rate structure to encourage water conservation as required by the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD). Last year, the rates were adjusted that resulted in a discount to low volume users. These customers use water primarily for necessary domestic use. High volume users pay a higher rate. Most of these customers irrigate their lawns and replenish their pools. This is a discretionary use. Water conservation is important to our water quality and availability. We all have a responsibility to conserve water and be good stewards of the environment. Because the tiered rates are a change for the Rainbow Springs customers, the city council established a discounted rate structure for the next five years. It begins with a 20 percent discount and adjusts 5 percent a year until the rates are equivalent to what all other customers are paying. Residents outside the city limits are charged an additional 25 percent surcharge primarily for two reasons. First, it goes toward retiring the debt service and second it builds a reserve account necessary for repairs and capital improvements. With the discount on the rates and the added surcharge, Rainbow Springs customers will pay the same amount as Dunnellon residents. This acquisition has caused many rumors to circulate. First, the city is not annexing Rainbow Springs or the Woodlands. Second, the city has no plans to expand into the Woodlands. Third, the city will not meter privately owned irrigation wells. And last, Greenlight is funded separately from the water and sewer utilities. Residents in Rainbow Springs have expressed anger about this acquisition. Some have even threatened to boycott Greenlight and potentially other businesses in Dunnellon. I hope they will reconsider. Greenlight will provide state of the art communication services at an afPurchase of utility systems vital for citys future A s I am reading all the opinion letters from the good people of Rainbow Springs regarding their recent water issues with the city of Dunnellon, I can feel the anger and frustration; however, it saddens me that part of the retribution for some, would be to boycott shopping in Dunnellon. In this economy, to punish the businesses of Dunnellon for a decision that was out of their control, put simply, is just wrong. The small business owners in Dunnellon work hard to make Dunnellon a wonderful place to live and shop. Lets not forget they also sponsor wonderful events such as, Jazz Up Dunnellon, Boomtown Days, the Queen of the Rainbow Pageant, Little Miss and Mr. Dunnellon, Special Olympics, the Christmas Parade and Relay for Life. I could go on and on. My point is, even in todays economy, the Dunnellon businesses dig deep in their pockets to give generously and help make these events happen. Without them it would not be possible. A lot of them are Mom and Pop operations owned by local families. I am asking you to refocus your position on boycotting the stores in Dunnellon. Dunnellon is a great place to shop and dine. It is full of warm, caring businesses, and should not be made a target for retribution. Beverly Leisure is the executive director of the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce. Audrey Beem See JERSEY GIRL page 7 Beverly Leisure Lisa Algiere See CITY page 7 See LETTERS page 5

only thing operational on the March 2011 start up date on Greenlight was the mounting interest and debt on the borrowed money. Question 6: Would you pay $2 million dollars over appraised value on a utility knowing you had the advantage of being the only buyer who had the leverage of being a government entity that could make a serious offer? No private company would overpay that much. Hey, they have to answer to stockholders, the city does not. Why worry, it is borrowed money? Question 7: Does anyone really feel good about the future of Dunnellon, compared to a month ago? I know how I answered the questions as they are obvious to anyone but the city management of Dunnellon. Instead of making the hard, unpopular financial decisions required, the city management has tried gimmicks, major bets with borrowed money and now the highly questionable purchase of a non-connected private utility. The patient might die from the cures implemented by the city management. Until two weeks ago, I had no idea a city could buy a free standing, nonconnected utility just to generate revenue. I do not think this was the intent of the law when passed. This does not pass the smell test. Good management, hard decisions and citizen input would have prevented this sad situation. Sadly, you have involved us without any notice or consideration in affairs of the city in regards to the utility purchase. Unfortunately, I have no legal standing in regards to city matters. I am just a revenue source to be exploited because you can. For sure, boycott Greenlight wherever you live. They will have to raise the rates. Do you trust them not to? It is similar to the Boston Tea Party, it is not our tea, but our water and we have to protest any way possible. We have no representation.Julio Fonseca Dunnellon No limit on excessive greedFlorida Statutes 180.191 Limitation on Rates Charged Consumer Outside City Limits provides two rate options for cities providing such services. 180.191 (1) (a) states that the city can charge the same rates as they charge city residents, plus a 25 percent surcharge without a hearing. Alternatively, under 180.191 (1) (b) the city is allowed to charge rates that are just and equitable as long as they are based upon the same rate factors. To this rate the city may add a 25 percent surcharge, so long as the total is not more than 50 percent in excess of that charged city residents for the corresponding service. If a city selects option (b), they must conduct a rate hearing. Since Dunnellon is not initially charging Rainbow Springs the same rate as their existing customers, how kind, and they have already held a hearing that most could not hear, it is obvious that they are availing themselves of option (b) in order to eventually charge Rainbow Springs customers as much as 50 percent more than Dunnellon residents. In their welcome letter, the city of Dunnellon states that Rainbow Springs irrigation customers use an average of 13,000 gallons per month; a high volume of water in Dunnellons opinion, when compared to the Southwest Florida Water Management District recommendation of 8,000 to 10,000 gallons per month to irrigate lawns on a 1/4-acre lot. Obviously, Dunnellon officials know that most Rainbow Springs lots are larger than 1/4-acre; with many over 1/2-acre. Scaling the SWFWMD recommendation to a 1/2-acre lot would result in a usage of 16,000 to 20,000 gallons per month. Thus Rainbow Springs water usage, while larger than Dunnellons, is far from profligate. Add the two factors together high water volume plus nefarious water rates and its no wonder they can afford so much debt for such a small water system. However, the most excessive thing of all is the opportunistic zeal of Dunnellon city officials to confiscate money from the residents of Rainbow Springs. Phil and Sherrie Nolden Rainbow Springs Remember, its an election year for someIt has been some time since I have written to the Riverland News to comment on the happenings here in Dunnellon and its surrounding communities. First, I would like to say Happy New Year to all. Lord willing, a reversal of the undependable, inexcusable actions undertaken by the city council can be reconsidered and reversed. The root of the problem is deep in the city. The tap root can be found growing in the offices of city hall particularly in the city council. This plant is what the state would call a noxious weed that has invaded the native environment choking the growth of other plants from survival. Over the past months the city has instituted cameras for the purpose of attaining revenue in the name of safety. The city has launched a business venture that is on track to rival the bankrupt Solyndra solar company, which received money from the federal level. The city has annexed lands into the city for the purpose of increasing its tax base. The city has attained two utilities outside of the city boundaries, where the customers of these services have no voice in the affairs of the cities policies that will directly affect them. The city government ought to be in the business of ensuring tranquility, not media provision supported through revenue enhancement from utilities or utilities. Also, let us not forget the arrogance that has been repeatedly expressed toward those who dissent to such actions. Now it is my belief that when a complaint is voiced, there ought to be a solution offered as well. When such action has been attempted, it is ridiculed and dismissed out of hand by the City Council. Therefore, it is time to remember that in November two seats are on the ballot, currently held by Fred Ward (Seat 1) and Peggy Fleeger (Seat 5). City Council you have had your actions recorded not on the red-light cameras, but on the public record and have failed to come to a complete stop in a safe and prudent manner. There have been repeated violations that deem it necessary for you to have your City Council privileges revoked. You need to attend school to learn how to represent the fine folks of Dunnellon, and upon completion of which, you may be reconsidered for your privileges to be reinstated Vernon R. Hastings Dunnellon Opinion without consensus from groupMr. (Bob) Frankenfield please explain to me the difference between a tax without any representation letter in Riverland News, Jan. 5 and an opinion without a consensus. I respect your opinion. I should, however, be signed as your opinion and not that of the Rainbow Springs Property Owners Association (RSPOA). I am not sure of the exact numbers, but I believe the RSPOA membership exceeds 3,000. When was the vote taken as to whether or not this letter should be written in the name of the RSPOA? I called you and asked if you would correct this error, but you stated you had the authority as president of the RSPOA to write this letter on our behalf. In the by-laws of the RSPOA, it states: The president shall preside at all meetings of the members of the Association and of the Board of Directors. He shall have the general powers and duties of supervision and management for the Association, which usually pertain to his office, and shall perform all such duties as are properly required of him by the Board of Directors. I did not find anything in the by-laws, which gave you the authority to write an opinion piece speaking for all the members of the RSPOA. As a member of the RSPOA, it scares me as to what other opinions you are signing without a consensus. Pam Berry, member RSPOA Dunnellon Big frog in a little pondArrogance and stupidity are a losing combination. It seems Mayor Fred Ward and the Dunnellon City Council are blessed with an abundance of both. Let us count the ways. First, reneging on the agreement with the Rainbow River Ranch developer, getting sued for millions and losing in court. Secondly, installing redlight cameras in Dunnellon under the guise of safety, which ended up driving out of town consumers from shopping in Dunnellon, and angering the folks who live in the immediate vicinity. We learned how to avoid the pitfalls of this boondoggle but it has left a bad taste in our mouths. Third, buying and installing a multi-million dollar fiber optic communication system without first doing a study to see if there would be a demand for it in our area. Fourth, buying the Rainbow Springs utility for $5.95 million when it was appraised for around $3.5 million and borrowing the money to purchase it when you are already in the hole for mistake one and three. Fifth, expecting the residents of Rainbow Springs, who purchased homes and paid the utility bills that financed the construction of the utility in the first place, and then charging them a 25 percent surcharge on top of the higher Dunnellon city utility rates to pay for mistakes one, three and four, and arrogantly not expecting a negative reaction from the residents of Rainbow Springs. Mayor Fred, The Big Frog in the Little Pond, Ward said: There is no downside to the city, only an upside. Dont count on it sir and dont treat us like the goose that laid the golden egg. Money talks and Rainbow Springs money talks loudly in Dunnellon. But when the mayor and the city council turn a deaf ear, the money can also walk and walk it will until you treat us as good neighbors and not cash cows. Rule No. 1: When you dig yourself into a hole, stop digging. Stop digging mayor! Victor Hinz Rainbow Springs Purchase of utility not a win-winMayor Fred Ward has stated that the purchase of Rainbow Springs Utility is a good deal for everyone. I disagree. It is not a good deal for the residents of Rainbow Springs and it may not turn out to be such a good deal for the city of Dunnellon. What they have managed to do is create such animosity that a large percentage of the residents of Rainbow Springs will take their business elsewhere, especially when they see just how expensive this is going be. If we are not spending our money in Dunnellon, not only are the merchants going to lose revenue, but the city of Dunnellon is also going to lose their portion of the sales taxes generated. There is more at play here than the success of Greenlight. I would urge all of the residents of Rainbow Springs to attend the POA meeting this month and find out just how expensive this is going to be. And to those of you in the Woodlands, you are next, so this concerns you as well. The Dunnellon City Council views us as their own personal piggy bank; they need us to pay for their poor decisions. This is not a win-win situation, it is a lose-lose situation for everyone. The people of Dunnellon need to recall everyone in the City Council, they do not have your best interests at heart.

It is about time the residents of our community ask many questions of this current Board of Directors as to why they have not had the best interests of Rainbow Springs as their main objective. Approximately 1 to 2 years ago, we found a map on the POA website that really concerned us it looked like a map with future boundary lines that included Rainbow Springs annexed into the city of Dunnellon. We had been told by several in the know people to watch out Dunnellon is after our water and annexation will follow. We questioned the Board about the map appearing on the POA website and they denied any knowledge of this map or why it was posted on the website. We asked them to research this information and report at the next Board meeting. They never did. Guess what? The city of Dunnellon now owns our water and next will be an attempt at annexation. If the Board had been diligent in their position of looking after our best interests and put out this information to all the Rainbow Springs residents, possibly we, at least, could have had a chance to change the outcome of this purchase. Yes, we are the cash cow of Dunnellon. We need a Board that puts this community first. This is a very important meeting and a very important election. Joan and I will be diligent in carrying proxies, just call. But most importantly, please attend and let your voice be heard. Joan Duggins and Penny Fyrogennis Rainbow Springs Residents LETTERS c ontinued f ro m page 5 fordable price. The initial area of service includes the city of Dunnellon, Rainbow Springs, Woodlands, River Retreat and Sateki Village. By this summer, we will reach State Road 200. The next phase includes Rainbow Lakes Estates, Lake Tropicana and Citrus Springs. We have received many requests for service and look forward to serving the greater Dunnellon area. Declining tax revenues in a sluggish economy has created financial challenges for the city. We cannot continue providing the level of service to our taxpayers unless we generate new revenue streams or raise ad valorem taxes. This has brought to light the importance of implementing our strategic vision. Greenlight will generate new revenue and purchasing Rainbow Springs utility strengthens our infrastructure. Although Rainbow Springs residents make note that they are not part of the city and want to boycott Dunnellon, they should understand that a vibrant and prosperous business district is vital to all surrounding neighborhoods. A blighted, boarded up commercial district brings down property values, attracts crime and becomes an undesirable place to live while a successful commercial district has the opposite effect.

A fter a trip to the Orient where orchids are used as an everyday life offering, Ed Bugbee, a marine biologist, and his wife Lyn, began growing Orchids in a sun room attached to their farmhouse. In 1992, the Bugbees sold their property including about 500 Orchids, coming to the difficult decision to pull up roots and move to Florida where Ed began working with established orchid growers to gain commercial experience. Two years later, Ed and Lyn began Featherstone Orchids in Crystal River. During the next 17 years, their business grew to four greenhouses with more than 6,000 square feet of space. Together they exhibited and sold orchids at more than 20 shows a year. They toured the country giving lectures and have won many World Orchid Society medals and trophies. The Bugbees grow an extensive variety of orchids through their worldwide connections, while at the same time sharing their experience to help customers grow and enjoy their own orchids. Now, the Bugbees will host a special presentation at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1, at the Dunnellon Public Library. Ed Bugbee will answer questions and display a diverse collection of plants during this program. The program is being sponsored by the Friends of the Dunnellon Public Library and is free to the public. The Dunnellon Library is at 20351 Robinson Road.

Civil Rights activist. He was an extraordinary man in extraordinary times. Mayor Ward praised the efforts of those who, particularly Maxine Thomas, continue to work to keep Dr. Kings legacy alive, nearly 44 years after he was assassinated. The city really appreciates your efforts to make sure this event happens, he added. Following Mayor Wards opening remarks; several children shared quotes many of the speeches given by Dr. King throughout many of his many sermons or efforts to see the quality of life for African-Americans improved. We want to salute this great man, the Rev. Eric Cummings told the crowd gathered throughout the park for the days festivities. We want to do this in unity, we want you to smile all day long. We want the community to have a great celebration. This isnt just for one part of the community, this is for all of the community to come and enjoy. We just want to be blessed. As the ceremony came to a close, Pastor Rose Thomas offered words of encouragement to all in her prayer. We cant get by without (God), she said. We thank you for the weather, its a beautiful day. Anita Williams sings the national anthem as Mayor Fred Ward stands in the background.JEFFBRYAN/Riverland News tion voluntarily grounded the plane and the birds in northwestern Alabama more than halfway to their destination. Joe Duff, an Operation Migration co-founder and one of the organizations pilots, said more than 1,400 people have signed an online petition asking that the flight be allowed to continue. Were very pleased. This is probably a record for turning around a waiver, Duff said. He said he has sympathy for FAA officials, who dont want to open the floodgates to potentially risky uses of ultralight aircraft. Lusk said the cranes are expected to make their return trip back north in March. Most of the whooping cranes spend the summer in central Wisconsin, where they use areas on or near Necedah National Wildlife Refuge, as well as other public and private lands. Whooping cranes were on the verge of extinction in the 1940s. Today, there are only about 570 birds in existence, approximately 400 of them in the wild. The only other migrating population of whooping cranes nests at Wood Buffalo National Park in northern Alberta, Canada and winters at Aransas National Wildlife Refuge on the Texas Gulf Coast.A nonmigrating flock of approximately 20 birds lives year-round in the Kissimmee region. Operation Migration is part of a U.S.-Canadian partnership of government and private organizations trying to re-establish migrating flocks of whoopingcranes. One flyway has already been re-established, but that flock of more than 100 birds is vulnerable to extinction should a disaster strike. Another Eastern flyway disappeared in the late 1800s when the last whoopingcranes flying that route died off, he said. Since there were no birds still flying the route, conservationists have been showing young cranes how to make the journey. There were 10 cranes when the flock left Wisconsin this fall. But one young bird took a detour and was later found hanging out with a flock of migrating sandhill cranes. That youngster has already arrived in Florida. Chronicle reporter A.B.

In addition to the Four Chaplain Memorial Ceremony, the American Legion post will celebrate the 93nd birthday of the American Legion. The festival, open to the public and free of charge, will offer music, food and refreshments. According to history excerpts from Matt Grills, on Feb. 3, 1943, the U.S. Army Transport Dorchester a converted luxury liner was crossing the North Atlantic, transporting more than 900 troops to an American base in Greenland. Aboard the ship were four chaplains of different faiths: the Rev. George Fox (Methodist), Jewish Rabbi Alexander Goode, the Rev. Clark Poling (Dutch Reformed) and Father John Washington (Roman Catholic). Around 12:55 a.m., a German U-boat fired a torpedo that struck Dorchesters starboard side, below the waterline and near the engine room. The explosion instantly killed 100 men and knocked out power and radio communication with Dorchesters three escort ships. Within 20 minutes, the transport sank and more than 670 men died. As soldiers rushed to lifeboats, the four chaplains spread out, comforting the wounded and directing others to safety. One survivor, Pvt. William Bednar, later said, I could hear men crying, pleading, and praying. I could also hear the chaplains preaching courage. Their voices were the only thing that kept me going. Another survivor, John Ladd, watched the chaplains distribute life jackets, and when they ran out, they removed theirs and gave them to four young men. It was the finest thing I have seen, or hope to see, this side of heaven, he recalled. As Dorchester sank, the chaplains were seen linked arm in arm, praying. Fox, Goode, Poling and Washington were posthumously awarded the Distinguished Service Cross and the Purple Heart, and in 1948, Congress declared Feb. 3 to be Four Chaplains Day. The four chaplains were also honored with a U.S. postage stamp that year, according to history excerpts. Event scheduled for 3 p.m. Feb. 5 Riverland News MIGRATION continued from page 1 tomers the ability to create their own package. Small business rates are set in the same resolution, she added. The news probably couldnt come at a better time for city officials as Greenlight Dunnellon Communications has had its share of problems since the City Council approved acquiring $7.3 million in funding in November 2010. The utility was originally scheduled to launch in July 2011; however, city officials could not acquire the much-needed fiber to connect to the Level 3 system in nearby Holder or install it within the city limits. Also, the city was slated to make its initial bond payment on the Series C Bond in November 2011, but Algiere said the city secured a loan extension from Regions Bank in Orlando. Recently, Rainbow Springs residents have launched a boycott of the system after the citys recent purchase of the utility system there for slightly less than $6 million. Residents there will be charged an extra 25 percent surcharge on their water bills and are currently passing out petitions in the community asking residents to sign it, making it known they plan to boycott the system unless officials drop the surcharge. Algiere, in a guest column in todays issue of the Riverland News again stated she hopes Rainbow Springs residents will reconsider their idea. Greenlight will provide state-of-the-art communication services at an affordable price, she wrote. The initial area of service includes the city of Dunnellon, Rainbow Springs, Woodlands, River Retreat and Sateki Village. By this summer, we will reach State Road 200. The next phase includes Rainbow Lakes Estates, Lake Tropicana and Citrus Springs. GREENLIGHT continued from page 1 LEGACY continued from page 1

Two-day event scheduled for Jan. 27-28 Special to the Riverland News Dunnellons A.J. Basso selected for annual Border Wars all-star game Frank Beasley recalls the first time he meet Anthony A.J. Basso. Basso was transferring to Dunnellon High during his sophomore year. During his enrollment, he was scheduled to meet with Dunnellon head coach Frank Beasley about playing football. If first impressions are everything, Beasley admits he wasnt awestruck. Basso was slouched in a chair in the front office. When I saw him slouched in the chair, I didnt want to talk to him, so I didnt, Beasley explained. But I soon realized that he has really good leadership skills and work ethic; he is a complete football player. Its a good thing Beasley did finally have that talk with Basso, who emerged as a solid force at linebacker during his prep career. During his recently completed senior season, Basso finished second on the team in total tackles with 101, tying for the team in lead with 47 solo stops. The 5-foot-9, 190pound Basso also had one interception and a sack this past year in which the Tigers finished 6-4, missing the playoffs for the first time in three years. But just because the prep season is complete and college coaches are hot on the recruiting trial as National Signing Day is approaching, doesnt mean Bassos played his final high school game or wont draw the attention of college scouts. Hell get one more crack at the All-Star Border Wars football game, a contest in which the best of the best high school football players from Florida, Georgia and Alabama, get the opportunity to compete against each other on the gridiron. Kick off is slated for 2 p.m. at Bazemore-Hyder Stadium in Valdosta, Ga. Gates open at 12:30 p.m. and tickets are $10 each. The game opens the door for the players, giving them the opportunity to be exposed to other top players, and to provide an opportunity for college scouts to see them in live in action as opposed to film. When coach Beasley told me I was invited, I was excited and shocked, Basso, picked as the Tigers 2011 Defensive Team MVP, explained. I didnt think that I was going to be chosen. Its not like I am nominated, they have a list and chose themselves. The Florida team started practice Jan. 17 and will wrap its four days of preparation, Friday, Jan. 20. During their time in camp, players received their jerseys and numbers. This bowl game means a lot to me. It proves that I am a successful football player and thats what I want to be, said Basso, whos played football for 10 years. He now hopes to turn his love of the game into an opportunity to earn a scholarship for college. He plans to major in physical therapy. Crossing the border JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon linebacker A.J. Basso will compete in the annual Border Wars all-star game at 2 p.m. at Bazemore-Hyder Stadium in Valdosta, Ga.

R IVERLAND EDUCATION 12 Riverland News, Thursday, January 19, 2012 Superintendent cancels Town Hall series OCALA Superintendent Jim Yancey has cancelled his series of town hall meetings starting later this month about a four-day school week next school year. The reasons? A school board majority wants to reconsider a traditional fiveday calendar, making the fourday week a moot point and eliminating the need for the town hall meetings. A traditional five-day school calendar will be discussed at the boards Feb. 14 agenda with a final vote on any revised calendar taking place Feb. 28. Floridas Department of Education also will not fund transportation costs as it has in the past based on a four-day schedule, reducing the original $4.2 million savings estimate by $1.8 million. At this point, no one knows for certain what the final budget outcome will be based on legislative action. The town hall meetings were scheduled at eight schools throughout Marion County to share budget history information, steps the school board and district have taken over the last five years to cut over $51 million from the operating budget, and alternatives to the four-day week. Community members still have ample opportunity to present their budget-cutting ideas at twice-monthly school board meetings and work sessions. The four-day week, originally approved 4-1 by the Marion County School Board last June, was to start this August. That plan could very well change based on future school board decisions. For more information, call the Public Relations Office at 352671-7555. Special to the Riverland News Traditional five-day week will be discussed Feb. 14 at school board meeting PRINCIPALS OFFICE DMS students gear up for beginning of second semester Dunnellon Middle School will begin the second semester of the 2011-12 school year Monday, Jan. 23.

We would like to pass along the following information that we are proud to be part of. For the 2010 o 2011 school year more than 86 percent of our Marion County seniors graduated on time. That is 6 percent above the state average at 80 percent. The No. 1 school is Dunnellon High School at 94.9 percent! We here at Dunnellon Middle School are proud of our former students. Thank you to the Dunnellon community for supporting education and the future, our children. Martinez, Kristopher Skates and Kylie Young have all read at least three Sunshine state books. Congratulations! Do you have 30 minutes to an hour you can spare once or twice a week? We are looking for volunteers to help us in all areas working with our students. There is a new program being started for the kindergarten through second-graders to help them with reading. Students reading improves dramatically having that extra one on one help. For more information, call the school office at 465-6710 and ask to speak to Ms. Helyn Hollenbeck. With the budget being stretched the way it is, we rely on our volunteers for all the extra help.

At least not like MY grandmother. Grandmother never trusted such things as banks with her money. Someone once told my grandmother, If you would put your money in the bank, they would pay you interest. With a confused look on her face she responded, I have enough interest in my money, nobody else needs to bother about it. That was that! After my grandfather died, my wife and I had the opportunity to take grandma out for supper. It was a delightful restaurant and we thought it would be a real treat for her. More than once, I had to keep her from getting up and serving coffee to the rest of the people in the restaurant. After all, she did that at the church suppers. Why not here? Ive got two good legs, she protested. Then came time to pay the check and the waiter brought the check and laid it in front of me. I immediately took a credit card out of my wallet and laid it on the check. I could tell grandma had never seen a credit card before. Put that away, she said. I believe that man wants you to pay for our supper. Dont you have any money? Im paying for our supper with my credit card, I explained. Oh, dear, she moaned. You know I dont believe in cards. Cards are of the devil, and I have never had a deck of cards in my house. Im a little surprised that you, a minister, would be fooling around with such things of the devil. She insisted we tip the waiter in good ole American cash. I am not sure if grandma ever really understood the credit card. She bought nothing on credit and did not accept credit. Everything had to be done in cash. She often quoted the scripture verse that says, Owe no man any thing . (Romans 13:8 KJV), which she took quite literally. As grandma got older, she began to rethink the business of opening a bank account. Without telling anyone, she decided to go to the bank 14 Riverland News, Thursday, January 19, 2012 Attend the worship service of your choice 000A1KX Calvary Baptist Temple 21841 S.W.

Many of our founding fathers were either Unitarians or Universalists. Today, UU is a non-creedal path which allows each person the freedom to search for truth in many ways. While our congregations uphold shared principles, individuals may discern their own beliefs about spiritual and theological issues. Because of the diversity o f beliefs and life styles, our congregation has rich dialogue about many spiritual topics. We are guided by 7 principles which all UUs share, and put into action in our church, our communities and the world. The Nature Coast UnitarianUniversalist Fellowship is a democratic and lay led congregation. All are Welcome.

More than a 100 children and adults arrived in their pajamas to get their tickets punched and prepared to board the Polar Express Saturday, Dec. 10, at the First United Methodist Church (FUMC) of Dunnellon. The event was a fundraiser for the FUMC Harmony Preschool. The Social Hall was transformed into a Winter Wonderland complete with train cars, twinkling lights and gaily wrapped packages decorating the walls as the guests boarded the train for a morning filled with fun. First order of business was a breakfast of waffles, egg casserole, bacon, fruit, juice and coffee. As the ride continued, the passengers were treated to special music solos, including a special Dance of the Elves, (performed by our very own Youth Fellowship members), who then served up piping hot chocolate to all on board. The train ride ended at the North Pole, where Santa visited with all the children and provided them with a special gift. The morning concluded with the children playing in the snow a marvelous finish to a super fun morning. Polar Express chugs through Special to the Riverland News

and open an account. She had saved up $50 for this purpose. Grandma nervously entered the bank and walked up to the man sitting at the desk marked New Accounts. Good morning, Maam. Im Gary Goodman. How can I help you today? The man seemed pleasant enough, and grandma thought entrusting him with the delicate job at hand was probably safe. I wanna open an account, she mumbled. Fine. Ill get you all set up. It wont take but a few minutes. With that, he took out some papers and laid them on his desk in front of grandma. Now, he said, lets begin. What is your name? She told him. OK, what is your address? What? What is your address? Why do you need to know that? Im just filling out the form, Maam. The young man a little confused with her hesitancy said, We can come back to that. What is your date of birth? Grandmas face turned a little red. What do you want to know that for, she gasped? Im just filling out the forms. Can you give me your telephone number? That did it for grandma. She got up from her seat and looked him right in the face and said, Young man, I dont know who you think you are, but I am not interested in your advances. Im old enough to be your mother. You ought to be ashamed. Just then the manager of the bank walked by. Mary, what are you doing here? The manager quickly assessed the situation and told the young man he would take care of this customer and tried to console my grandmother. I dont know whats gotten into young folk these days, she whispered. Barely concealing his manager his smile he said, Ill take care of you, Mary, he assured her. He knew all the information about her and quickly filled in the paper work and walked grandma to the teller for her first deposit. Grandma handed the teller a crumpled $50 bill. The teller took it and gave her a deposit receipt. Wheres my money? grandma demanded. Its safe in the bank, Maam. How do you know my money from everyone elses? The money is all deposited in the bank, and if you need any, all you do is write a check. She showed grandma how to write out a check. By now grandma was confused and more than a little exasperated. Quickly grandma wrote out a check for $50 and handed it back to the teller. Youre withdrawing all your money? Yes. The teller counted out $50 and handed it to her. Grandma looked at the teller and said, No. I want MY money. The teller retrieved the crumpled $50 bill and handed it to grandma. As she walked out, the teller heard her mumble, What a crazy way to run business. No wonder banks fail. There is only one sure account I can bank on. Jesus said, Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: (Matthew 6:19-20 KJV).

J ames Davey Penuel cracks the whip at Rainbow Springs State Park. He really does. He is not driving the herd, nor rounding up volunteers or heading off the rangers at the pass he is getting into character for the Rainbow Springs State Park Annual Cracker Days weekend event in February. Holidays and Cracker Days are favorite events of the assistant park manager. The park leads many lives throughout the year and the assistant manager is involved in the majority of them. It is not unusual to see a big smile on Mr. Penuel, the parks second in command, or hear his distinctive laughter, for he truly enjoys his job. With a genuine zest for life, his enthusiasm is contagious whether he is escorting Santa to the Claus House or cracking his whip at the annual Cracker Camp in February. Penuel looks forward to the annual events that take place at the park. Events for public pleasure and education are on-going throughout the year. His two personal favorites are Cracker Days in February and Santa Over the Rainbow in December. Both events, while very different, bring pleasure to the visitors, staff and volunteers who attend. The lights, the decorations, Santa and Mrs. Claus, music, the smiles on the faces of the children are what Penuel describes as just plain fun, fun, fun! The park is aglow with the sounds and sparkle of the season. The cooler weather transforms the park into our own local winter paradise. During Cracker Days, interpretation is a large part of the program. The period depicted during this twoday event is that of life in the 1880s to 1890s. It was a rough life back then and those that survived were rough and tough themselves. Penuel enjoys the fact that the volunteers and rangers work together to re-create this time in Florida history. It was a time of whip-snapping, cattle-herding, hardworking Americans. Born in Alabama, he still possesses his genuine Southern drawl. As a child in the south, Penuel always enjoyed being outdoors. Playing sports, especially football, was a favorite pastime of the assistant manager. It is not surprising that a love of the outdoors, a love of the South and a love of history would lead to a career in the Florida Park Service. Its all here under one sky. During his time off, Penuel and wife, Diane, continue their love of the outdoors, often taking to the roads on their motorcycle. During NASCAR season, the couple enjoys attending the races in Daytona. Both attend park events whether Penuel is on duty or not. Trips to visit family that live out of state give them yet another reason to travel and explore. Penuel has been the parks assistant manager since January 2010. With the recent holidays, he has had to plan his days, and more importantly evenings, around the annual Santa Over the Rainbow event presented by Friends of Rainbow Springs (FORS). Thousands of visitors arrive during December to enjoy the holiday traditions at Rainbow Springs. Dedicated volunteers started decorating the park the Monday before Thanksgiving. Penuel has a great deal of admiration for the volunteers and FORS members that actively work many hours for the enjoyment of the public. Without these dedicated volunteers, he said, there would be no annual events at Rainbow Springs. Penuel also looks forward to the annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner in January when he can tell the assembled group just how important they are to the park. Prior to his job assignment as the assistant park manager at Rainbow Springs State Park, Penuel was employed with the Department of Environmental Protection as a Park Ranger and before that a maintenance mechanic. Penuel started with DEP in 1993. For the past 18 years, he has progressed through the ranks with a goal of one day managing a park. He was working at Crystal River Preserve when he was given the sad news that his maintenance position was being eliminated. As with many things in life, this lemon turned into sweet lemonade when he applied for and was accepted as a park ranger here at Rainbow Springs. Many visitors and staff have favorite areas of the park that they find particularly beautiful and enjoyable. While the river, springs and trails are all magnificent in the eyes of our APM, his very favorite spots are the waterfalls. The falls were made decades ago when Rainbow Springs was an attraction. Though they are man-made, throughout the years they have become such a part of the landscape that most people are surprised when they are told that they are man made. Penuel enjoys the sights and sounds that occur around the areas of the falls plus the lush vegetation and wildlife. Fun, fun, fun is the goal the park staff aims for its guests. Not only is the park a place of lively and passive activities, it is a place of learning too. There is much information to be gathered and assimilated. To get back to that fun level, a lot of work takes place behind the scenes. The duties of the assistant park manager are many and varied. In Penuels position, a partial list of duties include: prescribed burns collecting of weather information for the planning of burns, responsible for park property; annual inventory, inspections; supervising the park rangers and staff; scheduling the staff for the three locations; payroll; identifying maintenance needs and maintenance schedules; implementing park rules, leases, contracts and permits; supervision of exotic removal; water level and erosion control; building and bridges repairs; employee training, supervision and discipline; overseeing and assisting in needed maintenance; coordinating interpretive programs; providing for good public relations; and coordinating and working with volunteers and the CSO organization. Rainbow Springs State Park is unusual among parks in that it has three separate locations, the headspring, tubing area and campground. Each location must be staffed and maintained. Attending to the many needs of the park and guests, Park Manager Joseph Smyth has the assistance of Penuel. Comprised of 1,472 acres, Rainbow Springs hosted nearly one-quarter million visitors in 2010. All of the acreage at this wonderful park requires a huge amount of looking after, which makes it all the more important that Smyth have an assistant manager. Between the two of them, the rangers, volunteers and FORS members, the park remains a place of peaceful and leisurely activity and beauty. If you would like to learn more about the park and the Real FloridaSM, stop by and visit. Penuel welcomes visitors to the park, the campground and the tubing facility. Rainbow Springs is open 365 days a year from 8 a.m. to sunset and staff is on duty each of those days.

Greenlight testing at friendlies Greenlight Dunnellon Communications is up and running, for the most part. City Manager Lisa Algiere announced Monday that Greenlight is now testing at friendly locations in areas such as Sateki Village, Blue Cove and River Retreat. Among those testing the system in Blue Cove include Mayor Fred Ward and Councilwoman Penny Fleeger. We are also trying to get some test sites in Dunnellon Heights and The Grenada, Algiere explained. We have about 10 to 12 test sites and testing usually takes two to three weeks. Once we are satisfied with the testing we will begin offering services. Blue Cove will probably be the first neighborhood, then the Grenada. Algiere also noted she planned to introduce a new rate schedule at Wednesdays City Council Workshop. Algiere said most of the residential stays the same; however, the city has added a 5 Mbs Internet service and it is offering discounts for bundling that gives cusFeds clear way for migration to resume Whoopers had been grounded, but given special approvalCRYSTAL RIVER The pilots and young whooping cranes grounded late last month en route to their Florida winter homes have been cleared to resume flying. The Federal Aviation Administration announced recently it has provided a one-time waiver to Operation Migration, a conservation organization trying to re-establish an Eastern flyway or route for whoopingcranes by teaching young birds how to make the flight. The Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge and the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge in Wakulla County are the destinations the flyers and their young students are trying to reach. Operation Migration ran into trouble with the FAA because it pays salaries to pilots. FAA regulations say sport planes a category that sometimes includes aircraft of exotic design can only be flown for personal use. We will be glad to have them, said Michael Lusk, manager of the Crystal River Wildlife Refuge. Lusk said the cranes could get here in 10 days or it may take up to a month. It all depends on the weather conditions, Lusk added. Currently, the flock remains grounded in Franklin County, Ala., because of inclement weather. FAA officials notified the conservation groups pilots in late November that the agency had opened an investigation.

However, this former police officer, wont be chasing down bad guys or writing citations. Instead hell be serving as the chaplain for the agency as well as other city employees who might need his service. Im ecstatic, said Anthony, who pastors at Cross at the River Cowboy Church. Im ecstatic about being back with the police officers. I didnt think Id ever wear a badge again. Its an absolute blessing. His first journey with law enforcement came to a close in 1991 after having worked for the Belle Glade Police Department for five years. Prior to that, he had worked a year with the Florida Department of Corrections. However, his personal battle with alcohol never let him return to law enforcement. In 2000, with the help of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Anthony won his battle with addiction. I feel like my life has come full circle, he explained. I feel like I can be there for the officers, and were going to be JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsPastor Ed Anthony of Cross at the River Cowboy Church is sworn in Sunday as the chaplain for the Dunnellon Police Department. Hes the first chaplain in department history. Ed Anthony sworn in as police departments first-ever chaplain JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See PASTOR page 3 Community pays tribute to Dr. King A cold, crisp winter morning did nothing to chill the spirits of those who gathered Monday morning to pay tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., one of the most influential persons of the 20th century. Members of area churches in the community, city dignitaries, as well as many others made the trek from McDonalds, south along U.S. 41 to Ernie Mills Park on Bostick Street. Once there, the celebration of the efforts made famous by Dr. King throughout the 1960s came to life. And as the temperatures rose, so did the spirit of the crowd as speeches were delivered and soulful songs filled the air of Ernie Mills Park for the better part of the morning into the early afternoon. As the colors were presented by the Dunnellon High School Junior ROTC, the wind wistfully blew the American flag as Anita Williams opened the event with the Star Spangled Banner.

And by going all in, it means the Dunnellon Police Departments Polar Pigs, as well as Cadence Banks Piggy Bankers will plunge into 60-degree water in a wave pool at the third annual Polar Plunge at Aquatic Park Saturday in Orlando. Its the second year each team will participate in the fundraiser, which generated more than $190,000 for the annual Special Olympics games in May at the Wild World of Sports Resort at Walt Disney World. So far, the Dunnellon Police Department is in the top 10 in fundraising statewide for the Polar Plunge after raising about $1,700 a year ago. In 2011, the agency finished 13th overall in the state, donating more than $13,000 to the nonprofit organization. Police Chief Joanne Black said its not her agency thats raising the money, its the community supporting the cause. Dunnellon raised more than $13,000, she explained. We were just the ones who dropped the check off. Ive always said this about this community, theyre great. They really step up. Blown away by the event a year ago, Black said she and number of her officers and staff are excited about returning. She even said a few of her officers who were working a year ago will make trek this year as others who participated last year will be working. Black said all of those who participate in Special Olympics events volunteer their time to the cause. We had a blast last year, she said. We werent sure what to expect, but it was a blast. We had the chance to meet several of the athletes who participate in the games, and to see the smiles on their faces at the Plunge was worth it all. To donate to the Polar Plunge or join the cause, visit www.firstgiving. com, then search for the Dunnellon Police Polar Pigs. there for the city employees. I feel there was a need to be there for them. People dont understand officers have issues that cause addictions, because they dont have an outlet. They have to maintain this persona that theyre unbeatable, that they are a superhero. But there are times when they need someone they can sit down with and tell them something is bugging them. They might have supervisors send them to counseling; other offices might think youre being weak. Thats simply not the case. Despite the storied history of the community, Police Chief Joanne Black said her research of the department shows this will be the first time the department has had a chaplain. It will also be the first time a pastor from the Cowboy Church Alliance will serve as a chaplain. Ive always wanted to bring a chaplain into the ranks, Black said, noting its a volunteer position. We were determined to do it this year. Black said she first approached Anthony about serving in the voluntary role after some initial discussion about the need for a chaplain. She said his background with law enforcement, plus his duties as a fulltime pastor made it a perfect fit. He has been involved with the community since his boots hit the pavement, Black said, noting after he started the Cross at the River Cowboy Church, he assisted the department on many fundraisers and his church partnered with the agency during the Cops for Kids program. He is very approachable, has a great sense of humor and has a heart of gold. He is very passionate about helping others and he will be an asset to this agency and city. Anthony believes his time serving in the U.S. Marine Corps and as a SWAT and narcotics officer will help him minister to those in the agency when needed, as well as to those with the city going through personal struggles. Being there for them, knowing they can come talk to me and knowing it remains confidential, he explained. I think thats important. That, and I understand what theyre feeling, what theyre going through. I think I can give them a feeling of relief when they spill some of this. Were here for the city, but I also believe this is an incentive for pastors to step out from their rodeo or church arena into the city arena. Thats the way it should be. While Dunnellon might not have the shootings and major crime of big cities, there are instances, Anthony said, which he believes his life experiences would prove helpful. A suicide in February 2011 was the first suicide worked by three officers at Dunnellon, he noted. It reminds me of the first time I ever had to deliver a death notice, he recalled. We didnt have a chaplain to assist me, so I was on my own. I was unable to leave the mother because of the intense pain and crying she was going through. I didnt have a chaplain to help me separate from it. Sometimes, officers in these situations have to go home and have no one talk to. I was taught in the academy to leave it in the station, but when you have no one to talk to about it, the end result is you dump it on someone, mainly your spouse.

River views Boycotting Dunnellon businesses wrong messageI am appalled at the idea of some Rainbow Springs residents wanting to boycott the businesses of Dunnellon in retaliation to the purchase of Rainbow Springs Utilities by the city of Dunnellon. I would venture to say that most of the owners are not Dunnellon City residents and have no vote or say in what the city does. They are great supporters of the community when it comes to donating for charities and local fundraisers. We do not need more empty stores. We need growth to provide more employment opportunities. Please patronize our local merchants.Carl F. Boos Rainbow SpringsEditorial was poignant, but ask yourself moreI appreciate the points in your well reasoned and thoughtful editorial in the Jan. 12 edition. Make no mistake about it the residents of the surrounding Dunnellon area know that the small business owners of Dunnellon are not responsible for the mismanagement and bad decisions of city leaders. The registered voters who reside inside the city limits are the ones who voted for the City Council. The city registered voters are the only ones with the power to get rid of this current city management. I believe the mayor, other council members and city manager all have made bad decisions without consideration of residents or surrounding neighborhood input. I agree with your editorial, there is a disease in Dunnellon. The disease is bad city management, terrible finance decisions without citizens input and an arrogant attitude of no regard for the ethos of their community. The disease has spread so far and fast that fast action is needed. The city registered voters have the cure for this problem, it is their votes. It is incumbent upon the voters of Dunnellon to get rid of the current administration as soon as possible. The sooner the current city management is gone; you might be able to save your city. The city and surrounding areas will long live with the legacy of bad finance decisions made by the city management. Here are seven questions that everyone reading this should answer honestly to judge how profound the bad decisions of this city management are, assuming you have read the last three Riverland News editions. Question 1: Would you locate your business within Dunnellon city limits, given past events and management of city government. Past actions are indicative of future actions Question 2: Given the uncertain future of city finances and their option to raise rates, would you purchase a house within the city limits? Question 3: Would you want to be a neighbor to Dunnellon, in which its leaders will consider you a revenue source given the opportunity? Question 4: Should a small city with an eroding tax base take on millions of dollars of debt with grand schemes, rushed decisions and very poor questionable data on ROI (Greenlight)? Question 5: Do you think the already mismanaged and costly Greenlight venture will bring in anywhere the projected (projected how?) revenue? The Chamber asks residents to not boycott business Let it be My article about my grandson that I had planned for this week will have to wait. Theres something more urgent right now; something I feel very strongly about. Even my own mother said I had to do it my first controversial column. Some will love it, some will hate it, and I promise you will read all about my precious grandson next week. OK, here goes. Why do people love to hate Tim Tebow? I watched the Bronco vs. Steelers game in awe, but then was astounded and disappointed the next day by the comments I heard or read such as, hes a fake, he got lucky, he thinks hes the greatest player there ever was, hes a punk or hes full of himself. What? Are we talking about the same guy? In 2008, I went with my dad and my youngest daughter, Alicia, to see the Gators celebrate their National Championship. A rather unknown young man stepped up to the microphone and began to speak about life, about his family and about his God. It was quite a show. All I saw was goodness. All I still see is goodness. Is he the best quarterback there ever was? Of course not. Is he one of the best? I have no idea. All I know is that he strives for perfection and tries to live a good life and he loves God. Isnt that all we really need to know? Lets not forget, this is a very young man were all talking about. This is also his first full year starting in the NFL, and hes from Florida. Cant we all just try to like him? In a country where our leaders and our mentors are sometimes on drugs and often cheating on their wives, isnt this a refreshing change? You wont read about Tebow doing these things; hes an all around good guy. He helps under-privileged children all over the world, he treats people with respect and kindness and he believes in God. End of story. Are people threatened by his faith? Does it make people uncomfortable to see him kneel and pray the way it does when mothers choose to breast feed in public? What are we scared of anyway? Is it so hard to believe that he could really be sincere? Or have we become so jaded and so cynical that this guy must have an agenda? When somebody acts different or gets too much positive attention, people are pretty quick to hate. Is it fear or jealousy or just disbelief? We all want our children to have role models. Do we want them to look up to a person like Tim Tebow or do we want them to worship Kanye West? How about Jerry Sandusky? Im sure many still worship Tiger Woods and trying to separate his private life from his professional. We make excuses for the John Edwards of the world. No excuses needed for this young man. Ninety-four million people read a bible verse because Tebow wrote it in his eye black. The Steelers-Broncos game was the most watched wild-card game since 1988. He inspired 9,420 tweets per second post-OT touchdown. Even though Beyonce and Jay-Z had their baby the same night, more people were interested in Tebow and what he stands for. This is all positive news. Even if you arent a fan of the NFL, you can still find inspiration in him. I know there are plenty of good guys out there. Drew Brees, John Travolta and Steve Jobs come to mind, and yes maybe the media is making too much of this guy. But thats what sells and The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

One is attracting industry to the airport to generate good paying jobs and increase the citys tax base. A key element in attracting business and industry is a strong infrastructure. It is important for the city to engage in economic development rather than hope that something will happen. Today, our childrens expectation of returning to Dunnellon to work and raise a family after college or career training is dismal. We need to prepare for an economic recovery and aggressively recruit industry to our community. Currently, we are partnering with Marion County, EDC, and the Chamber of Commerce on economic development. The purchase of Rainbow Springs utility strengthens the citys system and helps promote economic development. Many benefits are realized from this purchase. The customer base doubles minimizing necessary rate increases. A sewer connection can be made between Rio Vista and Rainbow Springs. Interconnecting the systems will create redundancy. Future expansion to connect riverfront properties onto sewer is possible. Available capacity is increased. The city uses a tiered rate structure to encourage water conservation as required by the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD). Last year, the rates were adjusted that resulted in a discount to low volume users. These customers use water primarily for necessary domestic use. High volume users pay a higher rate. Most of these customers irrigate their lawns and replenish their pools. This is a discretionary use. Water conservation is important to our water quality and availability. We all have a responsibility to conserve water and be good stewards of the environment. Because the tiered rates are a change for the Rainbow Springs customers, the city council established a discounted rate structure for the next five years. It begins with a 20 percent discount and adjusts 5 percent a year until the rates are equivalent to what all other customers are paying. Residents outside the city limits are charged an additional 25 percent surcharge primarily for two reasons. First, it goes toward retiring the debt service and second it builds a reserve account necessary for repairs and capital improvements. With the discount on the rates and the added surcharge, Rainbow Springs customers will pay the same amount as Dunnellon residents. This acquisition has caused many rumors to circulate. First, the city is not annexing Rainbow Springs or the Woodlands. Second, the city has no plans to expand into the Woodlands. Third, the city will not meter privately owned irrigation wells. And last, Greenlight is funded separately from the water and sewer utilities. Residents in Rainbow Springs have expressed anger about this acquisition. Some have even threatened to boycott Greenlight and potentially other businesses in Dunnellon. I hope they will reconsider. Greenlight will provide state of the art communication services at an afPurchase of utility systems vital for citys future As I am reading all the opinion letters from the good people of Rainbow Springs regarding their recent water issues with the city of Dunnellon, I can feel the anger and frustration; however, it saddens me that part of the retribution for some, would be to boycott shopping in Dunnellon. In this economy, to punish the businesses of Dunnellon for a decision that was out of their control, put simply, is just wrong. The small business owners in Dunnellon work hard to make Dunnellon a wonderful place to live and shop. Lets not forget they also sponsor wonderful events such as, Jazz Up Dunnellon, Boomtown Days, the Queen of the Rainbow Pageant, Little Miss and Mr. Dunnellon, Special Olympics, the Christmas Parade and Relay for Life. I could go on and on. My point is, even in todays economy, the Dunnellon businesses dig deep in their pockets to give generously and help make these events happen. Without them it would not be possible. A lot of them are Mom and Pop operations owned by local families. I am asking you to refocus your position on boycotting the stores in Dunnellon. Dunnellon is a great place to shop and dine. It is full of warm, caring businesses, and should not be made a target for retribution.Beverly Leisure is the executive director of the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce.

only thing operational on the March 2011 start up date on Greenlight was the mounting interest and debt on the borrowed money. Question 6: Would you pay $2 million dollars over appraised value on a utility knowing you had the advantage of being the only buyer who had the leverage of being a government entity that could make a serious offer? No private company would overpay that much. Hey, they have to answer to stockholders, the city does not. Why worry, it is borrowed money? Question 7: Does anyone really feel good about the future of Dunnellon, compared to a month ago? I know how I answered the questions as they are obvious to anyone but the city management of Dunnellon. Instead of making the hard, unpopular financial decisions required, the city management has tried gimmicks, major bets with borrowed money and now the highly questionable purchase of a non-connected private utility. The patient might die from the cures implemented by the city management. Until two weeks ago, I had no idea a city could buy a free standing, nonconnected utility just to generate revenue. I do not think this was the intent of the law when passed. This does not pass the smell test. Good management, hard decisions and citizen input would have prevented this sad situation. Sadly, you have involved us without any notice or consideration in affairs of the city in regards to the utility purchase. Unfortunately, I have no legal standing in regards to city matters. I am just a revenue source to be exploited because you can. For sure, boycott Greenlight wherever you live. They will have to raise the rates. Do you trust them not to? It is similar to the Boston Tea Party, it is not our tea, but our water and we have to protest any way possible. We have no representation.Julio Fonseca DunnellonNo limit on excessive greedFlorida Statutes 180.191 Limitation on Rates Charged Consumer Outside City Limits provides two rate options for cities providing such services. 180.191 (1) (a) states that the city can charge the same rates as they charge city residents, plus a 25 percent surcharge without a hearing. Alternatively, under 180.191 (1) (b) the city is allowed to charge rates that are just and equitable as long as they are based upon the same rate factors. To this rate the city may add a 25 percent surcharge, so long as the total is not more than 50 percent in excess of that charged city residents for the corresponding service. If a city selects option (b), they must conduct a rate hearing. Since Dunnellon is not initially charging Rainbow Springs the same rate as their existing customers, how kind, and they have already held a hearing that most could not hear, it is obvious that they are availing themselves of option (b) in order to eventually charge Rainbow Springs customers as much as 50 percent more than Dunnellon residents. In their welcome letter, the city of Dunnellon states that Rainbow Springs irrigation customers use an average of 13,000 gallons per month; a high volume of water in Dunnellons opinion, when compared to the Southwest Florida Water Management District recommendation of 8,000 to 10,000 gallons per month to irrigate lawns on a 1/4-acre lot. Obviously, Dunnellon officials know that most Rainbow Springs lots are larger than 1/4-acre; with many over 1/2-acre. Scaling the SWFWMD recommendation to a 1/2-acre lot would result in a usage of 16,000 to 20,000 gallons per month. Thus Rainbow Springs water usage, while larger than Dunnellons, is far from profligate. Add the two factors together high water volume plus nefarious water rates and its no wonder they can afford so much debt for such a small water system. However, the most excessive thing of all is the opportunistic zeal of Dunnellon city officials to confiscate money from the residents of Rainbow Springs.Phil and Sherrie Nolden Rainbow Springs Remember, its an election year for someIt has been some time since I have written to the Riverland News to comment on the happenings here in Dunnellon and its surrounding communities. First, I would like to say Happy New Year to all. Lord willing, a reversal of the undependable, inexcusable actions undertaken by the city council can be reconsidered and reversed. The root of the problem is deep in the city. The tap root can be found growing in the offices of city hall particularly in the city council. This plant is what the state would call a noxious weed that has invaded the native environment choking the growth of other plants from survival. Over the past months the city has instituted cameras for the purpose of attaining revenue in the name of safety. The city has launched a business venture that is on track to rival the bankrupt Solyndra solar company, which received money from the federal level. The city has annexed lands into the city for the purpose of increasing its tax base. The city has attained two utilities outside of the city boundaries, where the customers of these services have no voice in the affairs of the cities policies that will directly affect them. The city government ought to be in the business of ensuring tranquility, not media provision supported through revenue enhancement from utilities or utilities. Also, let us not forget the arrogance that has been repeatedly expressed toward those who dissent to such actions. Now it is my belief that when a complaint is voiced, there ought to be a solution offered as well. When such action has been attempted, it is ridiculed and dismissed out of hand by the City Council. Therefore, it is time to remember that in November two seats are on the ballot, currently held by Fred Ward (Seat 1) and Peggy Fleeger (Seat 5). City Council you have had your actions recorded not on the red-light cameras, but on the public record and have failed to come to a complete stop in a safe and prudent manner. There have been repeated violations that deem it necessary for you to have your City Council privileges revoked. You need to attend school to learn how to represent the fine folks of Dunnellon, and upon completion of which, you may be reconsidered for your privileges to be reinstatedVernon R. Hastings DunnellonOpinion without consensus from groupMr. (Bob) Frankenfield please explain to me the difference between a tax without any representation letter in Riverland News, Jan. 5 and an opinion without a consensus. I respect your opinion. I should, however, be signed as your opinion and not that of the Rainbow Springs Property Owners Association (RSPOA). I am not sure of the exact numbers, but I believe the RSPOA membership exceeds 3,000. When was the vote taken as to whether or not this letter should be written in the name of the RSPOA? I called you and asked if you would correct this error, but you stated you had the authority as president of the RSPOA to write this letter on our behalf. In the by-laws of the RSPOA, it states: The president shall preside at all meetings of the members of the Association and of the Board of Directors. He shall have the general powers and duties of supervision and management for the Association, which usually pertain to his office, and shall perform all such duties as are properly required of him by the Board of Directors. I did not find anything in the by-laws, which gave you the authority to write an opinion piece speaking for all the members of the RSPOA. As a member of the RSPOA, it scares me as to what other opinions you are signing without a consensus.Pam Berry, member RSPOA DunnellonBig frog in a little pondArrogance and stupidity are a losing combination. It seems Mayor Fred Ward and the Dunnellon City Council are blessed with an abundance of both. Let us count the ways. First, reneging on the agreement with the Rainbow River Ranch developer, getting sued for millions and losing in court. Secondly, installing redlight cameras in Dunnellon under the guise of safety, which ended up driving out of town consumers from shopping in Dunnellon, and angering the folks who live in the immediate vicinity. We learned how to avoid the pitfalls of this boondoggle but it has left a bad taste in our mouths. Third, buying and installing a multi-million dollar fiber optic communication system without first doing a study to see if there would be a demand for it in our area. Fourth, buying the Rainbow Springs utility for $5.95 million when it was appraised for around $3.5 million and borrowing the money to purchase it when you are already in the hole for mistake one and three. Fifth, expecting the residents of Rainbow Springs, who purchased homes and paid the utility bills that financed the construction of the utility in the first place, and then charging them a 25 percent surcharge on top of the higher Dunnellon city utility rates to pay for mistakes one, three and four, and arrogantly not expecting a negative reaction from the residents of Rainbow Springs. Mayor Fred, The Big Frog in the Little Pond, Ward said: There is no downside to the city, only an upside. Dont count on it sir and dont treat us like the goose that laid the golden egg. Money talks and Rainbow Springs money talks loudly in Dunnellon. But when the mayor and the city council turn a deaf ear, the money can also walk and walk it will until you treat us as good neighbors and not cash cows. Rule No. 1: When you dig yourself into a hole, stop digging. Stop digging mayor!Victor Hinz Rainbow SpringsPurchase of utility not a win-winMayor Fred Ward has stated that the purchase of Rainbow Springs Utility is a good deal for everyone. I disagree. It is not a good deal for the residents of Rainbow Springs and it may not turn out to be such a good deal for the city of Dunnellon. What they have managed to do is create such animosity that a large percentage of the residents of Rainbow Springs will take their business elsewhere, especially when they see just how expensive this is going be. If we are not spending our money in Dunnellon, not only are the merchants going to lose revenue, but the city of Dunnellon is also going to lose their portion of the sales taxes generated. There is more at play here than the success of Greenlight. I would urge all of the residents of Rainbow Springs to attend the POA meeting this month and find out just how expensive this is going to be. And to those of you in the Woodlands, you are next, so this concerns you as well. The Dunnellon City Council views us as their own personal piggy bank; they need us to pay for their poor decisions. This is not a win-win situation, it is a lose-lose situation for everyone. The people of Dunnellon need to recall everyone in the City Council, they do not have your best interests at heart.Glenda Hinz Rainbow SpringsMake sure to attend annual POA election meetingWe are urging all residents of Rainbow Springs to attend this very important meeting.

It is about time the residents of our community ask many questions of this current Board of Directors as to why they have not had the best interests of Rainbow Springs as their main objective. Approximately 1 to 2 years ago, we found a map on the POA website that really concerned us it looked like a map with future boundary lines that included Rainbow Springs annexed into the city of Dunnellon. We had been told by several in the know people to watch out Dunnellon is after our water and annexation will follow. We questioned the Board about the map appearing on the POA website and they denied any knowledge of this map or why it was posted on the website. We asked them to research this information and report at the next Board meeting. They never did. Guess what? The city of Dunnellon now owns our water and next will be an attempt at annexation. If the Board had been diligent in their position of looking after our best interests and put out this information to all the Rainbow Springs residents, possibly we, at least, could have had a chance to change the outcome of this purchase. Yes, we are the cash cow of Dunnellon. We need a Board that puts this community first. This is a very important meeting and a very important election. Joan and I will be diligent in carrying proxies, just call. But most importantly, please attend and let your voice be heard. Joan Duggins and Penny Fyrogennis Rainbow Springs Residents LETTERSc ontinued f rom page 5 fordable price. The initial area of service includes the city of Dunnellon, Rainbow Springs, Woodlands, River Retreat and Sateki Village. By this summer, we will reach State Road 200. The next phase includes Rainbow Lakes Estates, Lake Tropicana and Citrus Springs. We have received many requests for service and look forward to serving the greater Dunnellon area. Declining tax revenues in a sluggish economy has created financial challenges for the city. We cannot continue providing the level of service to our taxpayers unless we generate new revenue streams or raise ad valorem taxes. This has brought to light the importance of implementing our strategic vision. Greenlight will generate new revenue and purchasing Rainbow Springs utility strengthens our infrastructure. Although Rainbow Springs residents make note that they are not part of the city and want to boycott Dunnellon, they should understand that a vibrant and prosperous business district is vital to all surrounding neighborhoods. A blighted, boarded up commercial district brings down property values, attracts crime and becomes an undesirable place to live while a successful commercial district has the opposite effect.

After a trip to the Orient where orchids are used as an everyday life offering, Ed Bugbee, a marine biologist, and his wife Lyn, began growing Orchids in a sun room attached to their farmhouse. In 1992, the Bugbees sold their property including about 500 Orchids, coming to the difficult decision to pull up roots and move to Florida where Ed began working with established orchid growers to gain commercial experience. Two years later, Ed and Lyn began Featherstone Orchids in Crystal River. During the next 17 years, their business grew to four greenhouses with more than 6,000 square feet of space. Together they exhibited and sold orchids at more than 20 shows a year. They toured the country giving lectures and have won many World Orchid Society medals and trophies. The Bugbees grow an extensive variety of orchids through their worldwide connections, while at the same time sharing their experience to help customers grow and enjoy their own orchids. Now, the Bugbees will host a special presentation at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1, at the Dunnellon Public Library. Ed Bugbee will answer questions and display a diverse collection of plants during this program.

Civil Rights activist. He was an extraordinary man in extraordinary times. Mayor Ward praised the efforts of those who, particularly Maxine Thomas, continue to work to keep Dr. Kings legacy alive, nearly 44 years after he was assassinated. The city really appreciates your efforts to make sure this event happens, he added. Following Mayor Wards opening remarks; several children shared quotes many of the speeches given by Dr. King throughout many of his many sermons or efforts to see the quality of life for African-Americans improved. We want to salute this great man, the Rev. Eric Cummings told the crowd gathered throughout the park for the days festivities. We want to do this in unity, we want you to smile all day long. We want the community to have a great celebration. This isnt just for one part of the community, this is for all of the community to come and enjoy. We just want to be blessed. As the ceremony came to a close, Pastor Rose Thomas offered words of encouragement to all in her prayer. We cant get by without (God), she said. We thank you for the weather, its a beautiful day.

Joe Duff, an Operation Migration co-founder and one of the organizations pilots, said more than 1,400 people have signed an online petition asking that the flight be allowed to continue. Were very pleased. This is probably a record for turning around a waiver, Duff said. He said he has sympathy for FAA officials, who dont want to open the floodgates to potentially risky uses of ultralight aircraft. Lusk said the cranes are expected to make their return trip back north in March. Most of the whooping cranes spend the summer in central Wisconsin, where they use areas on or near Necedah National Wildlife Refuge, as well as other public and private lands. Whooping cranes were on the verge of extinction in the 1940s. Today, there are only about 570 birds in existence, approximately 400 of them in the wild. The only other migrating population of whooping cranes nests at Wood Buffalo National Park in northern Alberta, Canada and winters at Aransas National Wildlife Refuge on the Texas Gulf Coast.A nonmigrating flock of approximately 20 birds lives year-round in the Kissimmee region. Operation Migration is part of a U.S.-Canadian partnership of government and private organizations trying to re-establish migrating flocks of whoopingcranes. One flyway has already been re-established, but that flock of more than 100 birds is vulnerable to extinction should a disaster strike. Another Eastern flyway disappeared in the late 1800s when the last whoopingcranes flying that route died off, he said. Since there were no birds still flying the route, conservationists have been showing young cranes how to make the journey. There were 10 cranes when the flock left Wisconsin this fall. But one young bird took a detour and was later found hanging out with a flock of migrating sandhill cranes. That youngster has already arrived in Florida. Chronicle reporter A.B.

In addition to the Four Chaplain Memorial Ceremony, the American Legion post will celebrate the 93nd birthday of the American Legion. The festival, open to the public and free of charge, will offer music, food and refreshments. According to history excerpts from Matt Grills, on Feb. 3, 1943, the U.S. Army Transport Dorchester a converted luxury liner was crossing the North Atlantic, transporting more than 900 troops to an American base in Greenland. Aboard the ship were four chaplains of different faiths: the Rev. George Fox (Methodist), Jewish Rabbi Alexander Goode, the Rev. Clark Poling (Dutch Reformed) and Father John Washington (Roman Catholic). Around 12:55 a.m., a German U-boat fired a torpedo that struck Dorchesters starboard side, below the waterline and near the engine room. The explosion instantly killed 100 men and knocked out power and radio communication with Dorchesters three escort ships. Within 20 minutes, the transport sank and more than 670 men died. As soldiers rushed to lifeboats, the four chaplains spread out, comforting the wounded and directing others to safety. One survivor, Pvt. William Bednar, later said, I could hear men crying, pleading, and praying. I could also hear the chaplains preaching courage. Their voices were the only thing that kept me going. Another survivor, John Ladd, watched the chaplains distribute life jackets, and when they ran out, they removed theirs and gave them to four young men. It was the finest thing I have seen, or hope to see, this side of heaven, he recalled. As Dorchester sank, the chaplains were seen linked arm in arm, praying. Fox, Goode, Poling and Washington were posthumously awarded the Distinguished Service Cross and the Purple Heart, and in 1948, Congress declared Feb. 3 to be Four Chaplains Day. The four chaplains were also honored with a U.S. postage stamp that year, according to history excerpts. Event scheduled for 3 p.m. Feb. 5 Riverland News MIGRATION continued from page 1 tomers the ability to create their own package. Small business rates are set in the same resolution, she added. The news probably couldnt come at a better time for city officials as Greenlight Dunnellon Communications has had its share of problems since the City Council approved acquiring $7.3 million in funding in November 2010. The utility was originally scheduled to launch in July 2011; however, city officials could not acquire the much-needed fiber to connect to the Level 3 system in nearby Holder or install it within the city limits. Also, the city was slated to make its initial bond payment on the Series C Bond in November 2011, but Algiere said the city secured a loan extension from Regions Bank in Orlando. Recently, Rainbow Springs residents have launched a boycott of the system after the citys recent purchase of the utility system there for slightly less than $6 million. Residents there will be charged an extra 25 percent surcharge on their water bills and are currently passing out petitions in the community asking residents to sign it, making it known they plan to boycott the system unless officials drop the surcharge. Algiere, in a guest column in todays issue of theRiverland News, again stated she hopes Rainbow Springs residents will reconsider their idea. Greenlight will provide state-of-the-art communication services at an affordable price, she wrote. The initial area of service includes the city of Dunnellon, Rainbow Springs, Woodlands, River Retreat and Sateki Village. By this summer, we will reach State Road 200. The next phase includes Rainbow Lakes Estates, Lake Tropicana and Citrus Springs. GREENLIGHT continued from page 1 LEGACY continued from page 1

Two-day event scheduled for Jan. 27-28 Special to the Riverland News Dunnellons A.J. Basso selected for annual Border Wars all-star game Frank Beasley recalls the first time he meet Anthony A.J. Basso. Basso was transferring to Dunnellon High during his sophomore year. During his enrollment, he was scheduled to meet with Dunnellon head coach Frank Beasley about playing football. If first impressions are everything, Beasley admits he wasnt awestruck. Basso was slouched in a chair in the front office. When I saw him slouched in the chair, I didnt want to talk to him, so I didnt, Beasley explained. But I soon realized that he has really good leadership skills and work ethic; he is a complete football player. Its a good thing Beasley did finally have that talk with Basso, who emerged as a solid force at linebacker during his prep career. During his recently completed senior season, Basso finished second on the team in total tackles with 101, tying for the team in lead with 47 solo stops. The 5-foot-9, 190pound Basso also had one interception and a sack this past year in which the Tigers finished 6-4, missing the playoffs for the first time in three years. But just because the prep season is complete and college coaches are hot on the recruiting trial as National Signing Day is approaching, doesnt mean Bassos played his final high school game or wont draw the attention of college scouts. Hell get one more crack at the All-Star Border Wars football game, a contest in which the best of the best high school football players from Florida, Georgia and Alabama, get the opportunity to compete against each other on the gridiron. Kick off is slated for 2 p.m. at Bazemore-Hyder Stadium in Valdosta, Ga. Gates open at 12:30 p.m. and tickets are $10 each. The game opens the door for the players, giving them the opportunity to be exposed to other top players, and to provide an opportunity for college scouts to see them in live in action as opposed to film. When coach Beasley told me I was invited, I was excited and shocked, Basso, picked as the Tigers 2011 Defensive Team MVP, explained. I didnt think that I was going to be chosen. Its not like I am nominated, they have a list and chose themselves. The Florida team started practice Jan. 17 and will wrap its four days of preparation, Friday, Jan. 20. During their time in camp, players received their jerseys and numbers. This bowl game means a lot to me. It proves that I am a successful football player and thats what I want to be, said Basso, whos played football for 10 years. He now hopes to turn his love of the game into an opportunity to earn a scholarship for college. He plans to major in physical therapy.

RIVERLANDEDUCATION 12 Riverland News, Thursday, January 19, 2012 Superintendent cancels Town Hall series OCALA Superintendent Jim Yancey has cancelled his series of town hall meetings starting later this month about a four-day school week next school year. The reasons? A school board majority wants to reconsider a traditional fiveday calendar, making the fourday week a moot point and eliminating the need for the town hall meetings. A traditional five-day school calendar will be discussed at the boards Feb. 14 agenda with a final vote on any revised calendar taking place Feb. 28. Floridas Department of Education also will not fund transportation costs as it has in the past based on a four-day schedule, reducing the original $4.2 million savings estimate by $1.8 million. At this point, no one knows for certain what the final budget outcome will be based on legislative action. The town hall meetings were scheduled at eight schools throughout Marion County to share budget history information, steps the school board and district have taken over the last five years to cut over $51 million from the operating budget, and alternatives to the four-day week. Community members still have ample opportunity to present their budget-cutting ideas at twice-monthly school board meetings and work sessions. The four-day week, originally approved 4-1 by the Marion County School Board last June, was to start this August. That plan could very well change based on future school board decisions. For more information, call the Public Relations Office at 352671-7555.

At least not like MY grandmother. Grandmother never trusted such things as banks with her money. Someone once told my grandmother, If you would put your money in the bank, they would pay you interest. With a confused look on her face she responded, I have enough interest in my money, nobody else needs to bother about it. That was that! After my grandfather died, my wife and I had the opportunity to take grandma out for supper. It was a delightful restaurant and we thought it would be a real treat for her. More than once, I had to keep her from getting up and serving coffee to the rest of the people in the restaurant. After all, she did that at the church suppers. Why not here? Ive got two good legs, she protested. Then came time to pay the check and the waiter brought the check and laid it in front of me. I immediately took a credit card out of my wallet and laid it on the check. I could tell grandma had never seen a credit card before. Put that away, she said. I believe that man wants you to pay for our supper. Dont you have any money? Im paying for our supper with my credit card, I explained. Oh, dear, she moaned. You know I dont believe in cards. Cards are of the devil, and I have never had a deck of cards in my house. Im a little surprised that you, a minister, would be fooling around with such things of the devil. She insisted we tip the waiter in good ole American cash. I am not sure if grandma ever really understood the credit card. She bought nothing on credit and did not accept credit. Everything had to be done in cash. She often quoted the scripture verse that says, Owe no man any thing . (Romans 13:8 KJV), which she took quite literally. As grandma got older, she began to rethink the business of opening a bank account. Without telling anyone, she decided to go to the bank14 Riverland News, Thursday, January 19, 2012 Attend the worship service of your choice 000A1KX Calvary Baptist Temple 21841 S.W.

Many of our founding fathers were either Unitarians or Universalists. Today, UU is a non-creedal path which allows each person the freedom to search for truth in many ways. While our congregations uphold shared principles, individuals may discern their own beliefs about spiritual and theological issues. Because of the diversity o f beliefs and life styles, our congregation has rich dialogue about many spiritual topics. We are guided by 7 principles which all UUs share, and put into action in our church, our communities and the world. The Nature Coast UnitarianUniversalist Fellowship is a democratic and lay led congregation. All are Welcome.

The event was a fundraiser for the FUMC Harmony Preschool. The Social Hall was transformed into a Winter Wonderland complete with train cars, twinkling lights and gaily wrapped packages decorating the walls as the guests boarded the train for a morning filled with fun. First order of business was a breakfast of waffles, egg casserole, bacon, fruit, juice and coffee. As the ride continued, the passengers were treated to special music solos, including a special Dance of the Elves, (performed by our very own Youth Fellowship members), who then served up piping hot chocolate to all on board. The train ride ended at the North Pole, where Santa visited with all the children and provided them with a special gift. The morning concluded with the children playing in the snow a marvelous finish to a super fun morning. Polar Express chugs through Special to the Riverland News

and open an account. She had saved up $50 for this purpose. Grandma nervously entered the bank and walked up to the man sitting at the desk marked New Accounts. Good morning, Maam. Im Gary Goodman. How can I help you today? The man seemed pleasant enough, and grandma thought entrusting him with the delicate job at hand was probably safe. I wanna open an account, she mumbled. Fine. Ill get you all set up. It wont take but a few minutes. With that, he took out some papers and laid them on his desk in front of grandma. Now, he said, lets begin. What is your name? She told him. OK, what is your address? What? What is your address? Why do you need to know that? Im just filling out the form, Maam. The young man a little confused with her hesitancy said, We can come back to that. What is your date of birth? Grandmas face turned a little red. What do you want to know that for, she gasped? Im just filling out the forms. Can you give me your telephone number? That did it for grandma. She got up from her seat and looked him right in the face and said, Young man, I dont know who you think you are, but I am not interested in your advances. Im old enough to be your mother. You ought to be ashamed. Just then the manager of the bank walked by. Mary, what are you doing here? The manager quickly assessed the situation and told the young man he would take care of this customer and tried to console my grandmother. I dont know whats gotten into young folk these days, she whispered. Barely concealing his manager his smile he said, Ill take care of you, Mary, he assured her. He knew all the information about her and quickly filled in the paper work and walked grandma to the teller for her first deposit. Grandma handed the teller a crumpled $50 bill. The teller took it and gave her a deposit receipt. Wheres my money? grandma demanded. Its safe in the bank, Maam. How do you know my money from everyone elses? The money is all deposited in the bank, and if you need any, all you do is write a check. She showed grandma how to write out a check. By now grandma was confused and more than a little exasperated. Quickly grandma wrote out a check for $50 and handed it back to the teller. Youre withdrawing all your money? Yes. The teller counted out $50 and handed it to her. Grandma looked at the teller and said, No. I want MY money. The teller retrieved the crumpled $50 bill and handed it to grandma. As she walked out, the teller heard her mumble, What a crazy way to run business. No wonder banks fail. There is only one sure account I can bank on. Jesus said, Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: (Matthew 6:19-20 KJV).

He is not driving the herd, nor rounding up volunteers or heading off the rangers at the pass he is getting into character for the Rainbow Springs State Park Annual Cracker Days weekend event in February. Holidays and Cracker Days are favorite events of the assistant park manager. The park leads many lives throughout the year and the assistant manager is involved in the majority of them. It is not unusual to see a big smile on Mr. Penuel, the parks second in command, or hear his distinctive laughter, for he truly enjoys his job. With a genuine zest for life, his enthusiasm is contagious whether he is escorting Santa to the Claus House or cracking his whip at the annual Cracker Camp in February. Penuel looks forward to the annual events that take place at the park. Events for public pleasure and education are on-going throughout the year. His two personal favorites are Cracker Days in February and Santa Over the Rainbow in December. Both events, while very different, bring pleasure to the visitors, staff and volunteers who attend. The lights, the decorations, Santa and Mrs. Claus, music, the smiles on the faces of the children are what Penuel describes as just plain fun, fun, fun! The park is aglow with the sounds and sparkle of the season. The cooler weather transforms the park into our own local winter paradise. During Cracker Days, interpretation is a large part of the program. The period depicted during this twoday event is that of life in the 1880s to 1890s. It was a rough life back then and those that survived were rough and tough themselves. Penuel enjoys the fact that the volunteers and rangers work together to re-create this time in Florida history. It was a time of whip-snapping, cattle-herding, hardworking Americans. Born in Alabama, he still possesses his genuine Southern drawl. As a child in the south, Penuel always enjoyed being outdoors. Playing sports, especially football, was a favorite pastime of the assistant manager. It is not surprising that a love of the outdoors, a love of the South and a love of history would lead to a career in the Florida Park Service. Its all here under one sky. During his time off, Penuel and wife, Diane, continue their love of the outdoors, often taking to the roads on their motorcycle. During NASCAR season, the couple enjoys attending the races in Daytona. Both attend park events whether Penuel is on duty or not. Trips to visit family that live out of state give them yet another reason to travel and explore. Penuel has been the parks assistant manager since January 2010. With the recent holidays, he has had to plan his days, and more importantly evenings, around the annual Santa Over the Rainbow event presented by Friends of Rainbow Springs (FORS). Thousands of visitors arrive during December to enjoy the holiday traditions at Rainbow Springs. Dedicated volunteers started decorating the park the Monday before Thanksgiving. Penuel has a great deal of admiration for the volunteers and FORS members that actively work many hours for the enjoyment of the public. Without these dedicated volunteers, he said, there would be no annual events at Rainbow Springs. Penuel also looks forward to the annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner in January when he can tell the assembled group just how important they are to the park. Prior to his job assignment as the assistant park manager at Rainbow Springs State Park, Penuel was employed with the Department of Environmental Protection as a Park Ranger and before that a maintenance mechanic. Penuel started with DEP in 1993. For the past 18 years, he has progressed through the ranks with a goal of one day managing a park. He was working at Crystal River Preserve when he was given the sad news that his maintenance position was being eliminated. As with many things in life, this lemon turned into sweet lemonade when he applied for and was accepted as a park ranger here at Rainbow Springs. Many visitors and staff have favorite areas of the park that they find particularly beautiful and enjoyable. While the river, springs and trails are all magnificent in the eyes of our APM, his very favorite spots are the waterfalls. The falls were made decades ago when Rainbow Springs was an attraction. Though they are man-made, throughout the years they have become such a part of the landscape that most people are surprised when they are told that they are man made. Penuel enjoys the sights and sounds that occur around the areas of the falls plus the lush vegetation and wildlife. Fun, fun, fun is the goal the park staff aims for its guests. Not only is the park a place of lively and passive activities, it is a place of learning too. There is much information to be gathered and assimilated. To get back to that fun level, a lot of work takes place behind the scenes. The duties of the assistant park manager are many and varied. In Penuels position, a partial list of duties include: prescribed burns collecting of weather information for the planning of burns, responsible for park property; annual inventory, inspections; supervising the park rangers and staff; scheduling the staff for the three locations; payroll; identifying maintenance needs and maintenance schedules; implementing park rules, leases, contracts and permits; supervision of exotic removal; water level and erosion control; building and bridges repairs; employee training, supervision and discipline; overseeing and assisting in needed maintenance; coordinating interpretive programs; providing for good public relations; and coordinating and working with volunteers and the CSO organization. Rainbow Springs State Park is unusual among parks in that it has three separate locations, the headspring, tubing area and campground. Each location must be staffed and maintained. Attending to the many needs of the park and guests, Park Manager Joseph Smyth has the assistance of Penuel. Comprised of 1,472 acres, Rainbow Springs hosted nearly one-quarter million visitors in 2010. All of the acreage at this wonderful park requires a huge amount of looking after, which makes it all the more important that Smyth have an assistant manager. Between the two of them, the rangers, volunteers and FORS members, the park remains a place of peaceful and leisurely activity and beauty. If you would like to learn more about the park and the Real FloridaSM, stop by and visit. Penuel welcomes visitors to the park, the campground and the tubing facility. Rainbow Springs is open 365 days a year from 8 a.m. to sunset and staff is on duty each of those days.
