Long-time teacher, former councilmember dies at 92 For the better part of four decades, young women would be instructed to sit straight up, their feet firmly planted on the floor. Thats how it was with Marianthe Coppedge, who believed firm posture was the key to typing speed, said Michel Northsea, who learned to type under Coppedges tutelage before Northsea began a long career in the newspaper industry. She was very precise, Northsea explained. She was like a typical typing teacher. Shed walk around and talk, time us. Shed constantly remind us to put our feet on the floor and sit up. She was seriously into good posture. Coppedge not only made her mark at Dunnellon High School for 38 years, she also served on the Dunnellon City Council from 1984 to 1993. According to family members, she was mayor from 1987 to 1988. Additionally, she was active in a countywide youth program, served on the Marion County Pizza eatery robbed Man uses kniife in hold up at Little Caesars A male brandishing a knife Saturday night robbed Little Caesars, making off on a BMXstyle bicycle with an undisclosed amount of cash, a Dunnellon Police Department spokesperson said. According to Darlene Park, public information officer, she said a white male entered the establishment, slammed his hand on the counter, showed employees a large serated kitchen knife and demanded all of the money. Parker said the suspect, who was wearing a dark blue hoodie sweatshirt, dark blue shorts, work boats, had blondish/ brown hair and bright blue eyes, got away with an undisclosed amount of money. Parker also said the suspect had a tattoo running down his left arm all the way to his hand, but added the exact design of the tattoo couldnt be seen. The suspect took off on bicycle, north toward the Chatmire area. Authorities from both Dunnellon Police Department and the Marion County Sheriffs Office responded to the 911 call and canvassed the area in search of the suspect. Parker said the agency is pursuing two different leads. One person, Parker said, has come forward stating they knew who committed the crime. Were checking the legitmacy of their claim, Parker added. Anyone with information, clues or tips about the case is asked to call the Dunnellon Police Department at 465-8510 or Crimestoppers at 368-7868 (STOP). Giving chase Photos by JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon police officers Carolina Rolfes, left, and Scott Houts approach a vehilce involved in a pursuit. Personnel from the Dunnellon Police Department trained with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office about how to handle different scenarios as well as specific training methods during a pursuit. Dunnellon police officers train for how to handle pursuits When chasing the Dukes, Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane always exclaimed he was in hot pursuit. But a hot pursuit on the classic television show The Dukes of Hazzard typically ended with the Duke boys escaping and no one being injured. However, times have changed and pursuits of any magnitude, whether its high-speed or normal speed have become increasingly dangerous for law enforcement authorities not only nationwide, but statewide and locally in the past 10-plus years. So when Dunnellon Police Chief Joanne Black was presented with an opportunity to have her agency train with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office in Pursuit Training, she didnt scream I love it! I love it! but she didnt balk at the chance for her officers to take advantage of high-level training. Black, a long-time law enforcement officer, said theres a difference between a chase and a pursuit. A chase can only be done if the suspect has committed a felony. So in the backwoods of Citrus Springs, the call came over the radio for officer assistance, a short while later, shots are reportedly fired. This was a way to get them prepared, she explained about the joint training exercise. Its a mock pursuit, but they have the feel of a true life pursuit. They get to hear the chatter on the radio and it does provide the adrenaline. The training officers are teaching them to let them know what it feels like. I want my officers to be prepared in case of a future incident. Theyll have the knowledge. This is why I like this type of training. This type of training gives them the confidence. Black said while chases or pursuits in Dunnellon have been limited in the past, she said making sure her officers are prepared is key, because you never know when we might have to assist another agency such as the Citrus or Marion County Sheriffs Offices.If we ever had a situation such as this, JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsSimply Seafood To Go chef Frank LaSala, left, and Debra Galeazzi, co-owner of the store, will begin greeting customers Tuesday at the stores new pickup eatery. Simply Seafood on the go Simply Seafood is wading into new waters. The long-time Dunnellon fish market is expanding its business to offer customers freshly cook seafood meals and Simply Seafood To Go will open its kitchen Tuesday to customers who enjoy seafood, but prefer to have someone else do the cooking, said Debra Galeazzi, coowner of both establishments at 12149 S. Williams St. For those who enjoy preparing their own meals though, dont worry, Galeazzi said, Simply Seafood will remain open to those who enjoy purchasing fresh fare. This is has been a long-time dream of Johns to expand the business, Galeazzi said about her husband. Weve had a lot of requests throughout the years, a lot of people asking us about cooking their food for them. John is very passionate about expanding the Simply JEFF BRYAN Riverland News JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Dunnellon officer Mike Anger, right, secures a suspect involved in a mock pursuit.

they are going to know what they are doing, whats the next move, she explained if the need to assist the CCSO arose. We already know it, because weve been training with them for so many years. Black said her officers praised the efforts of the CCSO training staff of Sgt. Joe Palminteri and Deputies Nancy Suto, Chuck Kineal and Juan Santiago, who served as the suspect driver But just participating in a mock pursuit wasnt all officers did. After each exercise, instructors gathered officers around for a critique. Advice was offered for improvements throughout the training sessions. My officers stated it was awesome, terrific and felt like real life, Black said. You could see that they were excited. They were doing well. The training staff said my officers did an outstanding job. It makes me proud. Black praised the Citrus County Sheriffs Office for reaching out and extending the opportunity to participate in the training exercise. They know our budget is small and theyve always reached out to us, Black explained. I have a lot of good friends with Citrus and they are always asking, How can we help your agency? You cannot put a value on that. Weve been training with them for a long time. Every time, they are always offering it for us to attend. We train like were big. We cannot predict what is going to happen. If it can happen, I believe (my officers) should go and train. Riverland News, Thursday, November 22, 2012 3 A new voice leads the Marion County Board of County Commissioners. On Nov. 6, at its regularly scheduled board meeting, commissioners voted to have Commissioner Kathy Bryant take the chairpersons seat. Bryant is serving her first term on the Board of County Commissioners; this is her first time serving as chair. Commissioner Carl Zalak will take the vice chair seat. This is Zalaks first term on the commission and first time serving as vice chair. As chairwoman, Bryant will manage board meetings, public hearings and workshops. She will also establish board priorities and serve as a board ambassador at many public events. In the absence of the chair, the vice chair will assume these responsibilities. Bryant replaces former commissioner Charlie Stone as chair. During her tenure on the board, Bryant considers her involvement with consolidating public safety communications, bringing the Ocala 489 industrial park to fruition, and solving Marion Countys solid waste dilemma through purchasing air space at the Bushnell ACMS landfill to be among her top accomplishments. For her upcoming year as chair, she would like to continue to target economic development. I want to keep the board focused on economic development and make sure we continue moving our community forward, Bryant said. One of the other things I look forward to this year is hopefully putting together our solid waste authority. Ill also continue to make sure we are fiscally responsible. Citizens elected Bryant to the commission in 2010. Since joining the commission, she has served as the board liaison to the Tourist Development Council, among other local agencies. Bryant also serves on the Board of Directors for the Florida Association of Counties and serves as vice chair of that agencys health and human services policy leadership team. She is also a graduate of the Florida Association of Counties Certified County Commissioner program.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, November 22, 2012 River views Council needs to learn to take criticism We attended the Nov. 13 City Council meeting. How embarrassing. The City Council people acted like children, when they heard something that they did not like they said, I dont want to play any more and went home. Public officials need to be able to take criticism as well as praise, and if they cant take one, then they dont deserve the other. The people of Rainbow Springs are being taken advantage of and the City Council doesnt seem to care. We are still waiting for an itemized bill. They dont seem to care about that either. Glenda Hinz Rainbow Springs Vice mayor needs to mend fences tooI attended the Dunnellon City Council meeting Tuesday, Nov. 13, and was feeling the meeting with Mr. Whitt serving as mayor was a breath of fresh air. It was very obvious that Mr. Whitt cares not only about the residents of the city, but those in outlaying areas. The meeting was going along very well until Mr. Dennis Evans, vice mayor, decided you did not like Mr. Geseks comments directed toward City Manager Lisa Algiere and called for the meeting to be adjourned. What Mr. Gesek said is the truth. Cant you, Mr. Evans, face the truth? Rainbow Springs is going down hill fast because people cannot afford the huge increase in their water/sewer bills, nor can they afford installing a well to avoid the enormous irrigation portion of their bills. The residents of Rainbow Springs may not have been able to actually vote, but it is obvious that we have spoken and can speak again in the next election for Dunnellon City Council members. It is your responsibility as a councilmember, Mr. Evans, to work with Mr. Whitt who realizes the importance of mending fences, but I feel you broke the fence even more Tuesday night. Just remember the city of Dunnellon needs the residents of Rainbow Springs, or rather our money, a lot more than we need you. The relationship between Rainbow Springs and the city was fine until you bought our utility system. Joan K. Duggins Rainbow Springs Truths about Greenlight now coming outWe are now starting to see some of the truth about Greenlight Dunnellon Communications funding. At the Nov. 13 City Council Meeting, Its a thanksgiving day I f you are thinking about purchasing an Apple product, I would like you to hear my story first. As you know, I started a health kick more than a year and a half ago. I was walking 3 miles, five days a week. Lately, I have been doing more slacking than walking due to a sports injury. Ha, ha, that even cracks me up me and a sports injury. My left ankle pops, which drives me crazy, much like fingernails on a chalk board, and my knees are shot. I have cut my walking down to 2plus miles, three days a week. I cannot put one foot in front of the other without my music. I plug my iPod in and I am dancing in my head and embarrassingly sometimes with my whole body. There is no way I can stand still when I hear Shinning Star by Earth, Wind and Fire. I have to resist the urge to do the bump when I hear Boogietown. I just started dancing in my seat thinking about that song. So, you see why music is so important to my workout. It motivates me to move my butt. One day I am bee-bopping along when the songs on my playlist start to skip. Bummer, dude! It is extremely annoying because it plays about 30 seconds of a song and then skips to the next song. When I got home, I did what they call a restore where you restore the software from the Internet. The next day it was back to normal. The following day it wasnt. Since the iPod was under warranty it was 3 months old I went on the Apple support page and filled out a repair request explaining the problem and that I had restored it, but that failed to work. I had to schlepp over to Ocala and send it via Federal Express because they wont accept it any other way. This was a Friday. It was back on my door step on Monday. Along with my iPod was a letter stating that they could not duplicate the problem and they had restored it. OK, now I am slightly annoyed. I call the toll-free number and get friendly Mark. I tell him if they had bothered to turn on the iPod, they would see it wasnt working and if they had bothered to read my email they would have known that restoring it didnt work. Guess what Mark asks me to do? Yep, he wants me to restore it. Mark is obviously deaf. To appease him, I restore it and it still doesnt work. He passes me on to Raul. He tells me to send it back in. I tell him I am not too happy about schlepping back to Ocala when the price of gas is $3.65 a gallon. He offers to send me a prepaid box I can drop off at Goin Postal. Yeah! Finally, someone is listening. A week later my iPod is back Apple bytes The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

RIVERLAND NEWS THE JERSEY GIRL LETTERS TIME TO SMILE GUEST COLUMN Its funny how tough times have a way of bringing out the clever in each of us. Given a nudge, we surprise ourselves at how resourceful we can really be. This holiday season, decide to do it your way, not the advertisers way. Make your own set of rules. Seize these economic times to create a new normal for your holidays. Read on for ideas. Consider giving gifts to children only: Its hard to convince a child that opening a present is not the best part of the gift experience. Adults, though, are able to see a bigger picture. Gift certificates are gifts from the heart: With a little creativity, you can save your wallet from being malled during the holiday season. Remember, the goal of gift-giving should be to give pleasure to the person receiving it. With the recipient in mind, consider giving gift certificates for errands, chores or favors. Some gift certificate ideas: grocery shopping, babysitting, cooking, baking, mowing the lawn, pulling weeds, ironing, recording music, washing a car, cleaning a home or garage or putting photos in albums. Pass it on: We all lead busy lives. The gift of time is invaluable. Do you have a special interest or talent? How about offering a lesson on guitar playing, cake decorating, painting, oil/tire changing, knitting, fishing, bread making, wood working, candy making or target practice. Re-gifting is the talk of the town, and thats not a bad thing: Sometimes, the story that goes along with the gift may just outdo the gift. Consider giving the last great book you bought with a note about what the book meant to you. Or, create a journal of a vacation and include pictures and a map of the destination. If you must spend money, consider unique gifts you can purchase for less than $20: Consider giving smartphone apps, a rare coin, gas cards, unusual candy or a piggy bank partially full of change. Gift basket ideas: Small gift baskets, done right, are eye candy. Let your imagination fly. Pick a theme and go to town. Beverages: Cocoa or tea kit. Honey: Jar of local honey, honey dipper and package of gourmet crackers. Cheese: Cheese and cheese knife specifically for slicing that type of cheese. Correspondence: Homemade notes or greeting cards, stamps, pen. Gardening: Gloves, seeds from your garden, a small hand-painted flower pot. Fishing: Lures, hooks and line. Cooking: A favorite recipe with a sampling of the delectable dish or treat. Remember, its not the gift; its the thought that counts. Put a new holiday gift-giving philosophy into practice this year and make it your new holiday normal. Imagine how fun it can be dreaming up the next great creative gift! Have fun with it!

Gift giving in 2012: A new holiday normal I read this on Facebook last week: Only in America do we wait in line and trample others for sale items one day after giving thanks for what we already have. I realize this is supposed to be a joke; however, it does hold a bit of truth, doesnt it? I mean after all, it is Thanksgiving Day, the day of all days to give thanks and to be on our best behavior. We pray, we smile and we are sweet to all. We count our many blessings and enjoy every minute. But then once the next day rolls around and it becomes Christmas season, unfortunately, all that niceness is sometimes hard to find. For right now, were all still in nice mode and things are good in the neighborhood. All the talk of the week turns to food. Everybody is hustling around making lists, buying groceries and checking recipes. Who doesnt love a day that involves eating, drinking, family gathering and watching television? My grandfather, Sam, started the tradition in our family of eating all day with many courses throughout. My mother took over from him and now its my turn. The only course that I have omitted is the pasta, not for lack of love, but for lack of room in my tummy. So around 11:30 a.m., we will start with shrimp cocktail, followed by a large antipasto salad, my dads specialty and a table full of appetizers. The men will then plop down in front of the TV while we women get the main course ready, which we usually start around 2:30. We have all the traditional dishes with a few extras thrown in. Did I mention my mother makes the best brown gravy ever? Shes going to try to teach me how to make it again this year. After that, theres a lot of napping going on and the ones that still have energy take a walk around the block. We also try to squeeze in a few board games. Last, but not least, around 5 oclock, we do the dessert. There are a ton of sweets everybody swears they dont have room for, but they manage to get it down just the same. Then we all sit around and talk about how much we ate. What a great holiday.

Im sure everybody has their own favorite traditions. I love watching the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade. Its always special having the whole family together. Well almost the whole family. My brother who lives in Iowa will not be joining us, but I hear they will be drilling a hole in the ice and catching some fish. Thats a little cold weather humor. Were also having our in-laws this year for the very first time. Wish me luck. So what are some of your family traditions? It doesnt matter if youre cooking at home, going out to eat or eating turkey TV dinners in front of the television. The important thing is youre making special memories. Several of my friends will spend the day in the hunting woods, eating around the campfire. Thats probably the closest comparison to the original Thanksgiving dinner that was held hundreds of years ago. But whether youre having ham, prime rib, turdukhen or traditional turkey dinner, I hope youre full of more than just food when the day is done. This is also a great time to remember those less fortunate than us. Every year, I drop off six pies for the American Legion dinner. Its not much, but it helps. A saint, whose name I wish I knew, bought 25 turkeys this week, so 25 families can eat. There needs to be more people like her in this world. There are so many good Samaritans and plenty of them living right here in Dunnellon. I know our town has taken a beating lately for some unpopular decisions, but its still a great town and I love how people are there for each other when needed. I know many who continue donating to the people up north whove lost their homes. Thats the true spirit of the holidays. No matter how you celebrate or what kind of meal youre having all that really matters is that you are with the people you love. Happy Thanksgiving! with a letter stating there was accidental misuse and they would not fix it. What the heck is accidental misuse? I call Raul and ask him the same question. He said there was corrosion around the earphone jack. Are you freakin kidding me? Corrosion! I have only used it for 3 months. Maybe people in Silicon Valley dont sweat. In the real world, when someone works out they sweat. Only in the corporate world is sweat, a natural bodily function, considered an accidental misuse. It gets better. Raul says they can send me a complimentary Nano. I own the Shuffle model. I dont really care which one I use as long as I can hear my music and use the pedometer to measure my mileage. What they neglected to tell me is that the Nano only holds 2 gigabytes worth of music about 40 songs where my Shuffle is 8 gigabytes, which I have more than 500 songs on it. To top it off there is no pedometer on the Nano. After another round of getting nowhere with another customer service representative, I went straight to the top, Tim Cook, president of Apple Inc. I knew I would not get any assistance from the big guy himself, but I was hoping to reach someone in corporate. I did. Beauty yes that is her real name called and basically said tough cookies! Due to a bunch of legal mumbo jumbo, sweat is considered an accidental misuse. I sent back the useless Nano and have vowed to never buy an Apple product again. If the product cannot hold up to normal wear and tear, it should say so on the label. Most people use their iPods when they work out. I wouldnt be so mad if this wasnt the second iPod I purchased in four years. The first one broke and it was cheaper to buy a new one than get the old one fixed. I will add this iPod to my dishwasher that doesnt wash my dishes and my washing machine that leaks. All made in China and less than 3 years old. Its disgraceful! I am sick and tired of paying good money for crappy products. I wish I could personally thank every American manufacturer that hasnt sold out and moved production elsewhere and my feet would appreciate it if one of you would design something similar to an iPod. I need to walk! Light Up Dunnellon the second annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony, will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, at Dunnellon City Hall, 20750 River Drive.

the Council passed a resolution transferring $1.5 million from the water and sewer funds into the Greenlight fund. It seems Greenlight had an estimated $2 million in revenue for the 20112012 fiscal year, which ended in September, but it only had $52,609 in actual revenue. Actual expenses were $4.6 million, so there was a bit of a shortage. We also now know that members of the Council and the city manager have been rather loose with the truth over the past year. In a Jan. 19 column in the Riverland News the city manager, in response to community concerns about using water/sewer funds to subsidize Greenlight, wrote: Greenlight is funded separately from the water and sewer utilities. In her Aug. 12 article in the Riverland News Councilwoman Lynne McAndrew wrote: MYTH: Greenlight Communications Dunnellon is being subsidized/paid for by Rainbow Springs water rates and the 25 percent surcharge. Well folks, that is no longer a myth. Now it is a fact. The city is using water and sewer reserve funds to bail out Greenlight. It seems unusual that these high ranking members of the city government would be unaware of the Greenlight revenue problems when they made these statements. If they actually were unaware, then they are not doing their job very well. How could you not know that you are missing your target revenue by almost $2 million? If they were aware of the problems and did not communicate them to the public, or intentionally covered them up, then that is another matter. Now we have money being loaned to a fund that cant even afford to meet current debt service obligations or even cover operating expenses. They have a current year budget that includes estimated Greenlight revenues of $4.7 million (thats about $392,000 per month). Does anyone believe that number? It would sure be interesting to see how they came up with the estimated revenue. When you look at the budget it just looks like they plugged that number in because thats what was needed to offset the projected expenses. Now we just have to wait and see what they do when they dont have enough money to meet current year expenses. It seems like we have a creditability problem with some of the people running the Dunnellon city government.Congratulaions, Dunnellon, you are an additional $1.5 million in debt. Also, I recently sent a letter to the Dunnellon Utility Billing department asking that my future water bills include detailed information about water usage and how the total amount was computed (things like base rates, amount charged per gallon, surcharge, etc.). I received a nice response that said The city has always billed a total charge for water and a total charge for sewer without any itemization of the base rate (monthly availability charge) and usage. They did include a copy of Resolution No. RES2012-26, an 11-page document that shows all the current rates. I guess the bottom line is, figure it out for yourself. Talk about good service. Hugh Lochrane Rainbow Springs Riverland News is doing poor job of reportingLately, it seems to me that the Riverland News has not provided a balanced view of issues with the Dunnellon City Council and their mismanagement of funds. Last month, the Riverland News printed an opinion that Rainbow River Conservation give up the fight to intervene in the Bert Harris lawsuit and protect the Rainbow River and the pocketbooks of the citizens. This opinion was given without study of RRCs written objections to the city/developer settlement agreement or interviewing any RRC representatives. Then, on Nov. 8, theRiverland News carried a front page story entitled Degrees of Dunnellon where the Riverland News interviewed City Manager Lisa Algiere. This amounted to an opportunity for Algiere to promote her development initiatives without a question about the unaffordability of these initiatives. No mention was made of the citys $22 million debt, the real reason for purchase of the Rainbow Springs utility and the failing Greenlight Communications. She claimed that the redlight camera program was successful in reducing accidents when that is not so. I have published analyses showing that the camera locations were simply chosen to maximize income and that more rear-end accidents have been a result. She claims that the $1.3 million water pipe from the airport to Dunnellon Heights promoted in a CDBG proposal is to boost pressure to the community. As a mechanical engineer I can tell you that you dont need a 12-inch pipe 5 miles long to boost pressure to a few dozen homes.This is just for the benefit of the several developers who own large parcels along the path of the proposed pipe line at the taxpayers expense, those same developers who sponsored Fred Wards reelection campaign. Algiere also favors a resort hotel on the Rainbow River even though the river is already classified as an impaired waterway. In the Nov. 15 issue of theRiverland News the lead story is the $1,478,430 million transfer of funds from the Water/Sewer Fund to the Greenlight Fund by way of an after-the-fact amendment to the FY 2012 budget. Again, this story was simply an interview of Lisa Algiere with no analysis or opposing view presented by the News and, in fact, certain erroneous information was given by the Riverland News The original start-up date of Greenlight was promised to be March 2011, not late 2011, a bond payment in November 2011 had to be extended to this year at a higher interest rate, and the fund transfer is a loan payable in 2017 at an interest rate of .01 percent, not 1 percent. Examination of the Communications Fund Summary attached to the budget transfer resolution is quite revealing of the financial state of Greenlight Communications. In September 2011, it was projected that Greenlight would collect $2,044,000 in revenue in FY 2012, but the amended amount is now shown to be $56,107, the actual FY 2012 revenue. That is a whopping difference and it tells me that Greenlight is an abject failure, and here we are throwing another $1.5 million at it. This is on top of the $300,000 transferred from TIFD funds to Greenlight at the same time. When is the Riverland News going to take issue with the misinformation coming out of Dunnellon City Hall? As a journalist you are obligated to let the citizens know the truth and how their pocketbooks are being picked by the city mismanagement. Burt Eno Rainbow Springs Breaking the paradigm will take more than time The Nov. 15 guest column, Americas future is bleak at best, adds to the litany of hand-wringing letters to the editor you have likely read in the local and regional newspapers over the re-election of the president. The rhetoric seems to intimate the absurd notion that in just four years the president has wrought monumental damage to America, and that in a scant four more years he will turn America into a second rate socialist country. The angst, and the Republicans failure in the presidential election, is due to a denial of the immense changes that have taken place in America and the world since the World War II changes in technology, manufacturing, human rights, communications, transportation, health care and in the demographics of the American citizenry. Republicans were totally surprised when large numbers of minorities, the young and women turned out to vote for the president. This exemplifies that those on the right embraced the Republican presidential candidates view of the percent. Voters were concerned about which presidential candidate would have the interests of the middle class and the poor in mind in the imminent actions to be taken on the fiscal cliff, the national debt and the economy. Changes that have taken place in Americas history were not all peaches and cream transitions as the guest column suggests. The challenges faced in dealing with the early 20th century immigration, the Great Depression and civil rights movement were resolved under difficult, often divisive and sometimes violent circumstances. That is not unlike the challenges we face dealing with changes in America today. Some derided the presidents Forward slogan, but we certainly cannot step backward to face our challenges. Our economic woes were grown over decades and will not be completely resolved in a few years, but they are resolvable with balanced action. For those who remain skeptical, fear not, in four years the 22nd Amendment will bring the presidents administration to an end.

Can a week go by without some holiday that shuts down everybody? I celebrated Veterans Day, for example, on Sunday and the next day I went to the bank and discovered the bank was celebrating Veterans Day on Monday. Dont they know what day it is? I trust these people with my money? Of all the holidays we have, Thanksgiving is high on my list. I used to have a high regard for my birthday but so many of them have come that I do not like them anymore. I am ready to cancel that holiday. My birthday only means I am one year older and not one whit wiser. I am not thinking just about the scrumptious Thanksgiving dinner. OK, maybe I am, a little. Down through the years, I have been great fraternity buddies with eating. We have bonded so great throughout the years that even now that bonding is beginning to show. I like Thanksgiving, and so I am a little confused about these Sanity Challenged Buffoons who are allergic to the word Thanksgiving. They want to use names like, Turkey Day, and the latest one TDay. What the T stands for is anybodys guess. I know what D-Day stands for but all the gray matter has leaked out of my skull trying to figure out what TDay stands for. Given the rationality of these purveyors of insanity, I can only guess. Looking at what is happening to this great holiday, I have uncovered a con so convert that most people do not know it is going on. I call it the great Thanksgiving con. This is especially true for those who call it Turkey Day. First off, everybody says nice things about the turkey. The more the turkey struts, the more the compliments flow his way. What the turkey does not know is that when these Turkey Day people are looking at the turkey they are also licking their lips. It is not the beautiful feathers that interest them. It is not the way the turkey proudly struts back and forth. The frame these people want to see the turkey in is a roasting pan. They want to get rid of all those feathers that the turkey is so proud of and strip him bare so that he fits nicely in the roasting pan. The last few weeks of the turkeys life are rather remarkable. These people will give the turkey everything it wants. More food than the turkey can gobble up. What the turkey does not know is that there is a destiny in 8 Riverland News, Thursday, November 22, 2012 No matter how you slice it, its still Thanksgiving OUT TO PASTOR Moose Lodge makes donation to Food 4 Kids Inc.

store for him. With all the attention paid him, he has the idea that everybody appreciates him for his looks. If this turkey would ever spend an evening watching television with his human host, he would gather the idea that the most important thing in all the world is how you look. Looking into the mirror the turkey is quite proud of what he sees. He assumes that what he sees looking in the mirror is what his human host sees when they look at him. How wrong can a turkey be? The con begins to unfold. Rumors are flying about that there is a great banquet being prepared in his honor. Any turkey would be proud of this kind of development and look forward to being the guest of honor. In fact, as the turkey struts back-and-forth in front of his human hosts, he hears them saying, Wont that turkey look good at our dinner table? Whose head wouldnt turn hearing this kind of a compliment? What the turkey does not know is that being a guest at a dinner table is a one-time event for a creature like himself. Any turkey worth his feathers does not think beyond this great feast being held in his honor. I can imagine the gobble back in the turkey pen with the other turkeys. This great big, good-looking turkey, is telling all the others how important he is on the other side of the fence. Being the kind of turkey that he is, his gobble wins over the admiration of the other turkeys. Im so special, the turkey gobbles to his inferiors, that those humans are having a special banquet and I am the special guest of honor. The rest of the turkeys are ooohing in his direction for they never seen anyone quite as special as this turkey. The fatal day arrives. People come for the turkey and the rest of the turkeys have gathered around giving him a special turkey sendoff. They cannot wait to hear his report when he gets back from the special banquet. I say this is a con to beat all cons. Wrong messages are being sent to the turkey population. Thinking they are the guest of honor, they turn out to be the main dish on the banquet table. This is why I am against the term Turkey Day. It sends the wrong message. The focus around our table on this special occasion will not be the turkey but rather giving thanks to God who has been so good to us. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name (Psalms 100:4 KJV).

Seafood name. Neither of them will do the cooking, though. Instead, they found a person all too familiar with Dunnellon, but perhaps more so in Rainbow Springs. The Galeazzies have hired Frank LaSala, the former head chef at Rainbow Springs Golf & Country Club. LaSala worked there for six years prior to leaving 5 1/2 years ago. LaSala said hes excited about the opportunity to work in Dunnellon again. I love the people here, I live close to here, but I love the people here, said the graduate of Johnson and Wales, one of the top culinary institutes in the U.S. Galeazzi said LaSala has been instrumental in assisting them in their new business venture. His knowledge about the restaurant business is amazing, she said. Galeazzi explained the menu will offer a wide variety of items, but she said most of the menu will consist of baked, grilled or pan-grilled items. In addition to avoiding the fried foods, side items will consist of green beans and salads. Menu items, Galeazzi said, will range from $8 to $28 for a lobster dinner for two. Were really trying to give people a lighter option with their meals, she explained. For those who cannot find something to their likening on the main menu, Galeazzi said they can choose to pick something from the store and have LaSala prepare it for them. We feel it just offers another service to the customers, she explained. Galeazzi said both she and her husband are excited about the new opportunity and hope it leads to more opportunities for expansion in the future. For right now, we want to see how this goes before expanding into a full restaurant, she said. But we feel like this just gives us another opportunity to provide the same great service we pride ourselves on. Simply Seafood To Go will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, call 465-1554. Vocation Advisory Committee, the Dunnellon Zoning Board and was a volunteer police dispatcher. Connie Scott, who became city clerk during Coppedges tenure, said she was easy to work with during her time as a councilwoman. Soctt said Coppedge would always scrutinize the budget. She never saw a budget she wanted to approve, Scott recalled. She would always, always vote against it. I think sometimes she waited to see what the other council members were going to do and once she knew it had enough votes to pass, shed still vote against it. However, Scott noted, it was her relationship with her late husband, Dan, that always garnered attention from everyone, because of their bond. They were quite a couple, Scott explained. It was amazing to watch the dedication between them. Dan always brought her to City Hall and that wasnt a very long haul, but he always had a joke for the ladies. Hed wait for her to do her job and then take her home. Coppedge died Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012, at the age of 92 at Hampton Manor West. She was born in Greece in 1920; attended elementary school in Oneco, and graduated from Bradenton High School in Manatee County, before moving to Dunnellon in 1944. Coppedge received her Bachelors and Masters degrees from Florida State University and did advanced graduate work at University of Florida. In addition to teaching business education and photography at Dunnellon High, she taught adult evening classes for CFCC. She was a pillar of Dunnellon High School, said Nancy Myers, a Dunnellon High alum who took typing like many of her peers, noting she grew up in the same neighborhood as Coppedge and helped care for her late husband, Dan, when Myers worked as a nurse. Visitation was Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012, at Roberts Funeral Home with a funeral service at Holy Faith Episcopal Church in Dunnellon Friday with interment following at Dunnellon Memorial Gardens.

Long-time teacher, former councilmember dies at 92 For the better part of four decades, young women would be instructed to sit straight up, their feet firmly planted on the floor. Thats how it was with Marianthe Coppedge, who believed firm posture was the key to typing speed, said Michel Northsea, who learned to type under Coppedges tutelage before Northsea began a long career in the newspaper industry. She was very precise, Northsea explained. She was like a typical typing teacher. Shed walk around and talk, time us. Shed constantly remind us to put our feet on the floor and sit up. She was seriously into good posture. Coppedge not only made her mark at Dunnellon High School for 38 years, she also served on the Dunnellon City Council from 1984 to 1993. According to family members, she was mayor from 1987 to 1988. Additionally, she was active in a countywide youth program, served on the Marion County Pizza eatery robbed Man uses kniife in hold up at Little Caesars A male brandishing a knife Saturday night robbed Little Caesars, making off on a BMXstyle bicycle with an undisclosed amount of cash, a Dunnellon Police Department spokesperson said. According to Darlene Park, public information officer, she said a white male entered the establishment, slammed his hand on the counter, showed employees a large serated kitchen knife and demanded all of the money. Parker said the suspect, who was wearing a dark blue hoodie sweatshirt, dark blue shorts, work boats, had blondish/ brown hair and bright blue eyes, got away with an undisclosed amount of money. Parker also said the suspect had a tattoo running down his left arm all the way to his hand, but added the exact design of the tattoo couldnt be seen. The suspect took off on bicycle, north toward the Chatmire area. Authorities from both Dunnellon Police Department and the Marion County Sheriffs Office responded to the 911 call and canvassed the area in search of the suspect. Parker said the agency is pursuing two different leads. One person, Parker said, has come forward stating they knew who committed the crime. Were checking the legitmacy of their claim, Parker added. Anyone with information, clues or tips about the case is asked to call the Dunnellon Police Department at 465-8510 or Crimestoppers at 368-7868 (STOP). Giving chase Photos by JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon police officers Carolina Rolfes, left, and Scott Houts approach a vehilce involved in a pursuit.

Dunnellon police officers train for how to handle pursuits When chasing the Dukes, Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane always exclaimed he was in hot pursuit. But a hot pursuit on the classic television show The Dukes of Hazzard typically ended with the Duke boys escaping and no one being injured. However, times have changed and pursuits of any magnitude, whether its high-speed or normal speed have become increasingly dangerous for law enforcement authorities not only nationwide, but statewide and locally in the past 10-plus years. So when Dunnellon Police Chief Joanne Black was presented with an opportunity to have her agency train with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office in Pursuit Training, she didnt scream I love it! I love it! but she didnt balk at the chance for her officers to take advantage of high-level training. Black, a long-time law enforcement officer, said theres a difference between a chase and a pursuit. A chase can only be done if the suspect has committed a felony. So in the backwoods of Citrus Springs, the call came over the radio for officer assistance, a short while later, shots are reportedly fired. This was a way to get them prepared, she explained about the joint training exercise. Its a mock pursuit, but they have the feel of a true life pursuit. They get to hear the chatter on the radio and it does provide the adrenaline. The training officers are teaching them to let them know what it feels like. I want my officers to be prepared in case of a future incident. Theyll have the knowledge. This is why I like this type of training. This type of training gives them the confidence. Black said while chases or pursuits in Dunnellon have been limited in the past, she said making sure her officers are prepared is key, because you never know when we might have to assist another agency such as the Citrus or Marion County Sheriffs Offices.If we ever had a situation such as this, JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsSimply Seafood To Go chef Frank LaSala, left, and Debra Galeazzi, co-owner of the store, will begin greeting customers Tuesday at the stores new pickup eatery. Simply Seafood on the go Simply Seafood is wading into new waters. The long-time Dunnellon fish market is expanding its business to offer customers freshly cook seafood meals and Simply Seafood To Go will open its kitchen Tuesday to customers who enjoy seafood, but prefer to have someone else do the cooking, said Debra Galeazzi, coowner of both establishments at 12149 S. Williams St. For those who enjoy preparing their own meals though, dont worry, Galeazzi said, Simply Seafood will remain open to those who enjoy purchasing fresh fare. This is has been a long-time dream of Johns to expand the business, Galeazzi said about her husband.

they are going to know what they are doing, whats the next move, she explained if the need to assist the CCSO arose. We already know it, because weve been training with them for so many years. Black said her officers praised the efforts of the CCSO training staff of Sgt. Joe Palminteri and Deputies Nancy Suto, Chuck Kineal and Juan Santiago, who served as the suspect driver But just participating in a mock pursuit wasnt all officers did. After each exercise, instructors gathered officers around for a critique. Advice was offered for improvements throughout the training sessions. My officers stated it was awesome, terrific and felt like real life, Black said. You could see that they were excited. They were doing well. The training staff said my officers did an outstanding job. It makes me proud. Black praised the Citrus County Sheriffs Office for reaching out and extending the opportunity to participate in the training exercise. They know our budget is small and theyve always reached out to us, Black explained. I have a lot of good friends with Citrus and they are always asking, How can we help your agency? You cannot put a value on that. Weve been training with them for a long time. Every time, they are always offering it for us to attend. We train like were big. We cannot predict what is going to happen. If it can happen, I believe (my officers) should go and train. Riverland News, Thursday, November 22, 2012 3 A new voice leads the Marion County Board of County Commissioners. On Nov. 6, at its regularly scheduled board meeting, commissioners voted to have Commissioner Kathy Bryant take the chairpersons seat. Bryant is serving her first term on the Board of County Commissioners; this is her first time serving as chair. Commissioner Carl Zalak will take the vice chair seat. This is Zalaks first term on the commission and first time serving as vice chair. As chairwoman, Bryant will manage board meetings, public hearings and workshops. She will also establish board priorities and serve as a board ambassador at many public events. In the absence of the chair, the vice chair will assume these responsibilities. Bryant replaces former commissioner Charlie Stone as chair. During her tenure on the board, Bryant considers her involvement with consolidating public safety communications, bringing the Ocala 489 industrial park to fruition, and solving Marion Countys solid waste dilemma through purchasing air space at the Bushnell ACMS landfill to be among her top accomplishments. For her upcoming year as chair, she would like to continue to target economic development. I want to keep the board focused on economic development and make sure we continue moving our community forward, Bryant said. One of the other things I look forward to this year is hopefully putting together our solid waste authority. Ill also continue to make sure we are fiscally responsible. Citizens elected Bryant to the commission in 2010. Since joining the commission, she has served as the board liaison to the Tourist Development Council, among other local agencies. Bryant also serves on the Board of Directors for the Florida Association of Counties and serves as vice chair of that agencys health and human services policy leadership team.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, November 22, 2012 River views Council needs to learn to take criticismWe attended the Nov. 13 City Council meeting. How embarrassing. The City Council people acted like children, when they heard something that they did not like they said, I dont want to play any more and went home. Public officials need to be able to take criticism as well as praise, and if they cant take one, then they dont deserve the other. The people of Rainbow Springs are being taken advantage of and the City Council doesnt seem to care. We are still waiting for an itemized bill. They dont seem to care about that either. Glenda HinzRainbow SpringsVice mayor needs to mend fences tooI attended the Dunnellon City Council meeting Tuesday, Nov. 13, and was feeling the meeting with Mr. Whitt serving as mayor was a breath of fresh air. It was very obvious that Mr. Whitt cares not only about the residents of the city, but those in outlaying areas. The meeting was going along very well until Mr. Dennis Evans, vice mayor, decided you did not like Mr. Geseks comments directed toward City Manager Lisa Algiere and called for the meeting to be adjourned. What Mr. Gesek said is the truth. Cant you, Mr. Evans, face the truth? Rainbow Springs is going down hill fast because people cannot afford the huge increase in their water/sewer bills, nor can they afford installing a well to avoid the enormous irrigation portion of their bills. The residents of Rainbow Springs may not have been able to actually vote, but it is obvious that we have spoken and can speak again in the next election for Dunnellon City Council members. It is your responsibility as a councilmember, Mr. Evans, to work with Mr. Whitt who realizes the importance of mending fences, but I feel you broke the fence even more Tuesday night. Just remember the city of Dunnellon needs the residents of Rainbow Springs, or rather our money, a lot more than we need you. The relationship between Rainbow Springs and the city was fine until you bought our utility system. Joan K. DugginsRainbow SpringsTruths about Greenlight now coming outWe are now starting to see some of the truth about Greenlight Dunnellon Communications funding. At the Nov. 13 City Council Meeting, Its a thanksgiving day If you are thinking about purchasing an Apple product, I would like you to hear my story first. As you know, I started a health kick more than a year and a half ago. I was walking 3 miles, five days a week. Lately, I have been doing more slacking than walking due to a sports injury. Ha, ha, that even cracks me up me and a sports injury. My left ankle pops, which drives me crazy, much like fingernails on a chalk board, and my knees are shot. I have cut my walking down to 2plus miles, three days a week. I cannot put one foot in front of the other without my music. I plug my iPod in and I am dancing in my head and embarrassingly sometimes with my whole body. There is no way I can stand still when I hear Shinning Star by Earth, Wind and Fire. I have to resist the urge to do the bump when I hear Boogietown. I just started dancing in my seat thinking about that song. So, you see why music is so important to my workout. It motivates me to move my butt. One day I am bee-bopping along when the songs on my playlist start to skip. Bummer, dude! It is extremely annoying because it plays about 30 seconds of a song and then skips to the next song. When I got home, I did what they call a restore where you restore the software from the Internet. The next day it was back to normal. The following day it wasnt. Since the iPod was under warranty it was 3 months old I went on the Apple support page and filled out a repair request explaining the problem and that I had restored it, but that failed to work. I had to schlepp over to Ocala and send it via Federal Express because they wont accept it any other way. This was a Friday. It was back on my door step on Monday. Along with my iPod was a letter stating that they could not duplicate the problem and they had restored it. OK, now I am slightly annoyed. I call the toll-free number and get friendly Mark. I tell him if they had bothered to turn on the iPod, they would see it wasnt working and if they had bothered to read my email they would have known that restoring it didnt work. Guess what Mark asks me to do? Yep, he wants me to restore it. Mark is obviously deaf. To appease him, I restore it and it still doesnt work. He passes me on to Raul. He tells me to send it back in. I tell him I am not too happy about schlepping back to Ocala when the price of gas is $3.65 a gallon. He offers to send me a prepaid box I can drop off at Goin Postal. Yeah! Finally, someone is listening. A week later my iPod is back Apple bytes The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

RIVERLAND NEWS THE JERSEY GIRL LETTERS TIME TO SMILE GUEST COLUMN Its funny how tough times have a way of bringing out the clever in each of us. Given a nudge, we surprise ourselves at how resourceful we can really be. This holiday season, decide to do it your way, not the advertisers way. Make your own set of rules. Seize these economic times to create a new normal for your holidays. Read on for ideas. Consider giving gifts to children only: Its hard to convince a child that opening a present is not the best part of the gift experience. Adults, though, are able to see a bigger picture. Gift certificates are gifts from the heart: With a little creativity, you can save your wallet from being malled during the holiday season. Remember, the goal of gift-giving should be to give pleasure to the person receiving it. With the recipient in mind, consider giving gift certificates for errands, chores or favors. Some gift certificate ideas: grocery shopping, babysitting, cooking, baking, mowing the lawn, pulling weeds, ironing, recording music, washing a car, cleaning a home or garage or putting photos in albums. Pass it on: We all lead busy lives. The gift of time is invaluable. Do you have a special interest or talent? How about offering a lesson on guitar playing, cake decorating, painting, oil/tire changing, knitting, fishing, bread making, wood working, candy making or target practice. Re-gifting is the talk of the town, and thats not a bad thing: Sometimes, the story that goes along with the gift may just outdo the gift. Consider giving the last great book you bought with a note about what the book meant to you. Or, create a journal of a vacation and include pictures and a map of the destination. If you must spend money, consider unique gifts you can purchase for less than $20: Consider giving smartphone apps, a rare coin, gas cards, unusual candy or a piggy bank partially full of change. Gift basket ideas: Small gift baskets, done right, are eye candy. Let your imagination fly. Pick a theme and go to town. Beverages: Cocoa or tea kit. Honey: Jar of local honey, honey dipper and package of gourmet crackers. Cheese: Cheese and cheese knife specifically for slicing that type of cheese. Correspondence: Homemade notes or greeting cards, stamps, pen. Gardening: Gloves, seeds from your garden, a small hand-painted flower pot. Fishing: Lures, hooks and line. Cooking: A favorite recipe with a sampling of the delectable dish or treat. Remember, its not the gift; its the thought that counts. Put a new holiday gift-giving philosophy into practice this year and make it your new holiday normal. Imagine how fun it can be dreaming up the next great creative gift! Have fun with it!Lynda Spence is an Extension Agent at UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service and offers group classes about family and consumer sciences topics to groups at no charge.

Gift giving in 2012: A new holiday normal Iread this on Facebook last week: Only in America do we wait in line and trample others for sale items one day after giving thanks for what we already have. I realize this is supposed to be a joke; however, it does hold a bit of truth, doesnt it? I mean after all, it is Thanksgiving Day, the day of all days to give thanks and to be on our best behavior. We pray, we smile and we are sweet to all. We count our many blessings and enjoy every minute. But then once the next day rolls around and it becomes Christmas season, unfortunately, all that niceness is sometimes hard to find. For right now, were all still in nice mode and things are good in the neighborhood. All the talk of the week turns to food. Everybody is hustling around making lists, buying groceries and checking recipes. Who doesnt love a day that involves eating, drinking, family gathering and watching television? My grandfather, Sam, started the tradition in our family of eating all day with many courses throughout. My mother took over from him and now its my turn. The only course that I have omitted is the pasta, not for lack of love, but for lack of room in my tummy. So around 11:30 a.m., we will start with shrimp cocktail, followed by a large antipasto salad, my dads specialty and a table full of appetizers. The men will then plop down in front of the TV while we women get the main course ready, which we usually start around 2:30. We have all the traditional dishes with a few extras thrown in. Did I mention my mother makes the best brown gravy ever? Shes going to try to teach me how to make it again this year. After that, theres a lot of napping going on and the ones that still have energy take a walk around the block. We also try to squeeze in a few board games. Last, but not least, around 5 oclock, we do the dessert. There are a ton of sweets everybody swears they dont have room for, but they manage to get it down just the same. Then we all sit around and talk about how much we ate. What a great holiday.

Im sure everybody has their own favorite traditions. I love watching the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade. Its always special having the whole family together. Well almost the whole family. My brother who lives in Iowa will not be joining us, but I hear they will be drilling a hole in the ice and catching some fish. Thats a little cold weather humor. Were also having our in-laws this year for the very first time. Wish me luck. So what are some of your family traditions? It doesnt matter if youre cooking at home, going out to eat or eating turkey TV dinners in front of the television. The important thing is youre making special memories. Several of my friends will spend the day in the hunting woods, eating around the campfire. Thats probably the closest comparison to the original Thanksgiving dinner that was held hundreds of years ago. But whether youre having ham, prime rib, turdukhen or traditional turkey dinner, I hope youre full of more than just food when the day is done. This is also a great time to remember those less fortunate than us. Every year, I drop off six pies for the American Legion dinner. Its not much, but it helps. A saint, whose name I wish I knew, bought 25 turkeys this week, so 25 families can eat. There needs to be more people like her in this world. There are so many good Samaritans and plenty of them living right here in Dunnellon. I know our town has taken a beating lately for some unpopular decisions, but its still a great town and I love how people are there for each other when needed. I know many who continue donating to the people up north whove lost their homes. Thats the true spirit of the holidays. No matter how you celebrate or what kind of meal youre having all that really matters is that you are with the people you love. Happy Thanksgiving! with a letter stating there was accidental misuse and they would not fix it. What the heck is accidental misuse? I call Raul and ask him the same question. He said there was corrosion around the earphone jack. Are you freakin kidding me? Corrosion! I have only used it for 3 months. Maybe people in Silicon Valley dont sweat. In the real world, when someone works out they sweat. Only in the corporate world is sweat, a natural bodily function, considered an accidental misuse. It gets better. Raul says they can send me a complimentary Nano. I own the Shuffle model. I dont really care which one I use as long as I can hear my music and use the pedometer to measure my mileage. What they neglected to tell me is that the Nano only holds 2 gigabytes worth of music about 40 songs where my Shuffle is 8 gigabytes, which I have more than 500 songs on it. To top it off there is no pedometer on the Nano. After another round of getting nowhere with another customer service representative, I went straight to the top, Tim Cook, president of Apple Inc. I knew I would not get any assistance from the big guy himself, but I was hoping to reach someone in corporate. I did. Beauty yes that is her real name called and basically said tough cookies! Due to a bunch of legal mumbo jumbo, sweat is considered an accidental misuse. I sent back the useless Nano and have vowed to never buy an Apple product again. If the product cannot hold up to normal wear and tear, it should say so on the label. Most people use their iPods when they work out. I wouldnt be so mad if this wasnt the second iPod I purchased in four years. The first one broke and it was cheaper to buy a new one than get the old one fixed. I will add this iPod to my dishwasher that doesnt wash my dishes and my washing machine that leaks. All made in China and less than 3 years old. Its disgraceful! I am sick and tired of paying good money for crappy products. I wish I could personally thank every American manufacturer that hasnt sold out and moved production elsewhere and my feet would appreciate it if one of you would design something similar to an iPod. I need to walk! Light Up Dunnellon, the second annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony, will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, at Dunnellon City Hall, 20750 River Drive.

the Council passed a resolution transferring $1.5 million from the water and sewer funds into the Greenlight fund. It seems Greenlight had an estimated $2 million in revenue for the 20112012 fiscal year, which ended in September, but it only had $52,609 in actual revenue. Actual expenses were $4.6 million, so there was a bit of a shortage. We also now know that members of the Council and the city manager have been rather loose with the truth over the past year. In a Jan. 19 column in the Riverland News, the city manager, in response to community concerns about using water/sewer funds to subsidize Greenlight, wrote: Greenlight is funded separately from the water and sewer utilities. In her Aug. 12 article in the Riverland News, Councilwoman Lynne McAndrew wrote: MYTH: Greenlight Communications Dunnellon is being subsidized/paid for by Rainbow Springs water rates and the 25 percent surcharge. Well folks, that is no longer a myth. Now it is a fact. The city is using water and sewer reserve funds to bail out Greenlight. It seems unusual that these high ranking members of the city government would be unaware of the Greenlight revenue problems when they made these statements. If they actually were unaware, then they are not doing their job very well. How could you not know that you are missing your target revenue by almost $2 million? If they were aware of the problems and did not communicate them to the public, or intentionally covered them up, then that is another matter. Now we have money being loaned to a fund that cant even afford to meet current debt service obligations or even cover operating expenses. They have a current year budget that includes estimated Greenlight revenues of $4.7 million (thats about $392,000 per month). Does anyone believe that number? It would sure be interesting to see how they came up with the estimated revenue. When you look at the budget it just looks like they plugged that number in because thats what was needed to offset the projected expenses. Now we just have to wait and see what they do when they dont have enough money to meet current year expenses. It seems like we have a creditability problem with some of the people running the Dunnellon city government.Congratulaions, Dunnellon, you are an additional $1.5 million in debt. Also, I recently sent a letter to the Dunnellon Utility Billing department asking that my future water bills include detailed information about water usage and how the total amount was computed (things like base rates, amount charged per gallon, surcharge, etc.). I received a nice response that said The city has always billed a total charge for water and a total charge for sewer without any itemization of the base rate (monthly availability charge) and usage. They did include a copy of Resolution No. RES2012-26, an 11-page document that shows all the current rates. I guess the bottom line is, figure it out for yourself. Talk about good service. Hugh LochraneRainbow SpringsRiverland News is doing poor job of reportingLately, it seems to me that the Riverland News has not provided a balanced view of issues with the Dunnellon City Council and their mismanagement of funds. Last month, the Riverland News printed an opinion that Rainbow River Conservation give up the fight to intervene in the Bert Harris lawsuit and protect the Rainbow River and the pocketbooks of the citizens. This opinion was given without study of RRCs written objections to the city/developer settlement agreement or interviewing any RRC representatives. Then, on Nov. 8, theRiverland News carried a front page story entitled Degrees of Dunnellon where the Riverland News interviewed City Manager Lisa Algiere. This amounted to an opportunity for Algiere to promote her development initiatives without a question about the unaffordability of these initiatives. No mention was made of the citys $22 million debt, the real reason for purchase of the Rainbow Springs utility and the failing Greenlight Communications. She claimed that the redlight camera program was successful in reducing accidents when that is not so. I have published analyses showing that the camera locations were simply chosen to maximize income and that more rear-end accidents have been a result. She claims that the $1.3 million water pipe from the airport to Dunnellon Heights promoted in a CDBG proposal is to boost pressure to the community. As a mechanical engineer I can tell you that you dont need a 12-inch pipe 5 miles long to boost pressure to a few dozen homes.This is just for the benefit of the several developers who own large parcels along the path of the proposed pipe line at the taxpayers expense, those same developers who sponsored Fred Wards reelection campaign. Algiere also favors a resort hotel on the Rainbow River even though the river is already classified as an impaired waterway. In the Nov. 15 issue of theRiverland News the lead story is the $1,478,430 million transfer of funds from the Water/Sewer Fund to the Greenlight Fund by way of an after-the-fact amendment to the FY 2012 budget. Again, this story was simply an interview of Lisa Algiere with no analysis or opposing view presented by the News and, in fact, certain erroneous information was given by theRiverland News. The original start-up date of Greenlight was promised to be March 2011, not late 2011, a bond payment in November 2011 had to be extended to this year at a higher interest rate, and the fund transfer is a loan payable in 2017 at an interest rate of .01 percent, not 1 percent. Examination of the Communications Fund Summary attached to the budget transfer resolution is quite revealing of the financial state of Greenlight Communications. In September 2011, it was projected that Greenlight would collect $2,044,000 in revenue in FY 2012, but the amended amount is now shown to be $56,107, the actual FY 2012 revenue. That is a whopping difference and it tells me that Greenlight is an abject failure, and here we are throwing another $1.5 million at it. This is on top of the $300,000 transferred from TIFD funds to Greenlight at the same time. When is the Riverland News going to take issue with the misinformation coming out of Dunnellon City Hall? As a journalist you are obligated to let the citizens know the truth and how their pocketbooks are being picked by the city mismanagement. Burt EnoRainbow SpringsBreaking the paradigm will take more than timeThe Nov. 15 guest column, Americas future is bleak at best, adds to the litany of hand-wringing letters to the editor you have likely read in the local and regional newspapers over the re-election of the president. The rhetoric seems to intimate the absurd notion that in just four years the president has wrought monumental damage to America, and that in a scant four more years he will turn America into a second rate socialist country. The angst, and the Republicans failure in the presidential election, is due to a denial of the immense changes that have taken place in America and the world since the World War II changes in technology, manufacturing, human rights, communications, transportation, health care and in the demographics of the American citizenry. Republicans were totally surprised when large numbers of minorities, the young and women turned out to vote for the president. This exemplifies that those on the right embraced the Republican presidential candidates view of the percent. Voters were concerned about which presidential candidate would have the interests of the middle class and the poor in mind in the imminent actions to be taken on the fiscal cliff, the national debt and the economy. Changes that have taken place in Americas history were not all peaches and cream transitions as the guest column suggests. The challenges faced in dealing with the early 20th century immigration, the Great Depression and civil rights movement were resolved under difficult, often divisive and sometimes violent circumstances. That is not unlike the challenges we face dealing with changes in America today. Some derided the presidents Forward slogan, but we certainly cannot step backward to face our challenges. Our economic woes were grown over decades and will not be completely resolved in a few years, but they are resolvable with balanced action. For those who remain skeptical, fear not, in four years the 22nd Amendment will bring the presidents administration to an end.

Can a week go by without some holiday that shuts down everybody? I celebrated Veterans Day, for example, on Sunday and the next day I went to the bank and discovered the bank was celebrating Veterans Day on Monday. Dont they know what day it is? I trust these people with my money? Of all the holidays we have, Thanksgiving is high on my list. I used to have a high regard for my birthday but so many of them have come that I do not like them anymore. I am ready to cancel that holiday. My birthday only means I am one year older and not one whit wiser. I am not thinking just about the scrumptious Thanksgiving dinner. OK, maybe I am, a little. Down through the years, I have been great fraternity buddies with eating. We have bonded so great throughout the years that even now that bonding is beginning to show. I like Thanksgiving, and so I am a little confused about these Sanity Challenged Buffoons who are allergic to the word Thanksgiving. They want to use names like, Turkey Day, and the latest one TDay. What the T stands for is anybodys guess. I know what D-Day stands for but all the gray matter has leaked out of my skull trying to figure out what TDay stands for. Given the rationality of these purveyors of insanity, I can only guess. Looking at what is happening to this great holiday, I have uncovered a con so convert that most people do not know it is going on. I call it the great Thanksgiving con. This is especially true for those who call it Turkey Day. First off, everybody says nice things about the turkey. The more the turkey struts, the more the compliments flow his way. What the turkey does not know is that when these Turkey Day people are looking at the turkey they are also licking their lips. It is not the beautiful feathers that interest them. It is not the way the turkey proudly struts back and forth. The frame these people want to see the turkey in is a roasting pan. They want to get rid of all those feathers that the turkey is so proud of and strip him bare so that he fits nicely in the roasting pan. The last few weeks of the turkeys life are rather remarkable. These people will give the turkey everything it wants. More food than the turkey can gobble up. What the turkey does not know is that there is a destiny in8 Riverland News, Thursday, November 22, 2012 No matter how you slice it, its still ThanksgivingOUT TO PASTOR Moose Lodge makes donation to Food 4 Kids Inc.

store for him. With all the attention paid him, he has the idea that everybody appreciates him for his looks. If this turkey would ever spend an evening watching television with his human host, he would gather the idea that the most important thing in all the world is how you look. Looking into the mirror the turkey is quite proud of what he sees. He assumes that what he sees looking in the mirror is what his human host sees when they look at him. How wrong can a turkey be? The con begins to unfold. Rumors are flying about that there is a great banquet being prepared in his honor. Any turkey would be proud of this kind of development and look forward to being the guest of honor. In fact, as the turkey struts back-and-forth in front of his human hosts, he hears them saying, Wont that turkey look good at our dinner table? Whose head wouldnt turn hearing this kind of a compliment? What the turkey does not know is that being a guest at a dinner table is a one-time event for a creature like himself. Any turkey worth his feathers does not think beyond this great feast being held in his honor. I can imagine the gobble back in the turkey pen with the other turkeys. This great big, good-looking turkey, is telling all the others how important he is on the other side of the fence. Being the kind of turkey that he is, his gobble wins over the admiration of the other turkeys. Im so special, the turkey gobbles to his inferiors, that those humans are having a special banquet and I am the special guest of honor. The rest of the turkeys are ooohing in his direction for they never seen anyone quite as special as this turkey. The fatal day arrives. People come for the turkey and the rest of the turkeys have gathered around giving him a special turkey sendoff. They cannot wait to hear his report when he gets back from the special banquet. I say this is a con to beat all cons. Wrong messages are being sent to the turkey population. Thinking they are the guest of honor, they turn out to be the main dish on the banquet table. This is why I am against the term Turkey Day. It sends the wrong message. The focus around our table on this special occasion will not be the turkey but rather giving thanks to God who has been so good to us. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name (Psalms 100:4 KJV).

Seafood name. Neither of them will do the cooking, though. Instead, they found a person all too familiar with Dunnellon, but perhaps more so in Rainbow Springs. The Galeazzies have hired Frank LaSala, the former head chef at Rainbow Springs Golf & Country Club. LaSala worked there for six years prior to leaving 5 1/2 years ago. LaSala said hes excited about the opportunity to work in Dunnellon again. I love the people here, I live close to here, but I love the people here, said the graduate of Johnson and Wales, one of the top culinary institutes in the U.S. Galeazzi said LaSala has been instrumental in assisting them in their new business venture. His knowledge about the restaurant business is amazing, she said. Galeazzi explained the menu will offer a wide variety of items, but she said most of the menu will consist of baked, grilled or pan-grilled items. In addition to avoiding the fried foods, side items will consist of green beans and salads. Menu items, Galeazzi said, will range from $8 to $28 for a lobster dinner for two. Were really trying to give people a lighter option with their meals, she explained. For those who cannot find something to their likening on the main menu, Galeazzi said they can choose to pick something from the store and have LaSala prepare it for them. We feel it just offers another service to the customers, she explained. Galeazzi said both she and her husband are excited about the new opportunity and hope it leads to more opportunities for expansion in the future. For right now, we want to see how this goes before expanding into a full restaurant, she said. But we feel like this just gives us another opportunity to provide the same great service we pride ourselves on. Simply Seafood To Go will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, call 465-1554. Vocation Advisory Committee, the Dunnellon Zoning Board and was a volunteer police dispatcher. Connie Scott, who became city clerk during Coppedges tenure, said she was easy to work with during her time as a councilwoman. Soctt said Coppedge would always scrutinize the budget. She never saw a budget she wanted to approve, Scott recalled. She would always, always vote against it. I think sometimes she waited to see what the other council members were going to do and once she knew it had enough votes to pass, shed still vote against it. However, Scott noted, it was her relationship with her late husband, Dan, that always garnered attention from everyone, because of their bond. They were quite a couple, Scott explained. It was amazing to watch the dedication between them. Dan always brought her to City Hall and that wasnt a very long haul, but he always had a joke for the ladies. Hed wait for her to do her job and then take her home. Coppedge died Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012, at the age of 92 at Hampton Manor West. She was born in Greece in 1920; attended elementary school in Oneco, and graduated from Bradenton High School in Manatee County, before moving to Dunnellon in 1944. Coppedge received her Bachelors and Masters degrees from Florida State University and did advanced graduate work at University of Florida. In addition to teaching business education and photography at Dunnellon High, she taught adult evening classes for CFCC. She was a pillar of Dunnellon High School, said Nancy Myers, a Dunnellon High alum who took typing like many of her peers, noting she grew up in the same neighborhood as Coppedge and helped care for her late husband, Dan, when Myers worked as a nurse. Visitation was Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012, at Roberts Funeral Home with a funeral service at Holy Faith Episcopal Church in Dunnellon Friday with interment following at Dunnellon Memorial Gardens.
