Tow truck stolen from Goulds Christmas was a little less merry for a long-time business in Dunnellon. When John Belcher arrived to work Monday at Goulds Tire & Auto, 12029 and 12038 S. Williams St., he noticed the automotive repair centers rollback wrecker was missing. He had left the flat-bed tow truck parked across the street from the Dunnellon Police Department, but when he arrived to start his day at 6:30 a.m. Christmas Eve, it was gone. According to a Dunnellon Police Department report, Belcher told authorities when he left at 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 22, the wrecker was parked to the south side of its building and was secured. When he returned Christmas Eve, it was gone. Goulds Tire & Auto has operated in Dunnellon for more than 20 years, Belcher said. Its not really shock, its quite a bit of disappointment, he said. George has been in business for a long time, and to see this happen, its quite disappointing, in general. Belcher said while Goulds didnt use the tow truck much, the loss of the equipment will certainly put a dent in business. You have to wonder who would just come and steal it, Belcher said while repairing a truck Thursday afternoon. According to the report, authorities searched the area and found broken glass, which might have been that from the Vehicle taken from local business prior to Christmas JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Church slates revival Concert will feature Ivan Parker Its time for a revival of the Christian spirit. First United Methodist Church will host a four-day Community Revival Celebration from Jan. 6 to 9 at its church at at 21501 W. State Road 40. The event will kick off each night at 6:30 p.m. with gospel music and praise while prayers for healing will be included in the services. Interdenominational speakers at the event include: Claude Ray, an evangelist biker; Rev. Nathaniel Rawls, pastor of First Bethel Missionary Baptist Church; Ernie Mills, who played football with the Gators, the Pittsburg Steelers and the Dallas Cowboys; and David Vander Klay, a New York detective and an evangelist biker. Our goal is to get a community united in the message of the gospel, said event organizer John Mihok, whos been a member at First United Methodist for the past five years. Our pastor put this on our heart a while back; hes a very spirit-filled man and he has a deep love for the Lord and the community. We wanted an event that the community could just come together. While the overall goal is to target the youths in the area, Mihok said its not about recruiting members for the church, but to lead people to JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDorothy Flemton, a life-long resident of Dunnellon, is in need of a kindey transplant. The 32-year-old, who graduated from Dunnellon High in 1999, suffers from Bartter syndrome, a rare disease that attacks the kidneys. See TOW page 3 DHS graduate pens new book Everyone has a name that is not only unique to them, but has more meaning than one might think. Dunnellon resident Kim Sherouse Krewson has written a book called Secret Namesake Sampler because she is convinced that everything that has ever happened has been written in names. I have researched several names on different subjects, codes, the bible code, Krewson said. The names form a parable and that is your divine purpose here on earth. You discover that mankinds every move is being carefully guided by a higher power. Her book has 72 different people who have had a significant impact on history and the present. Krewson uses the book to introduce the namesake language and show how her system works. One of the 72 subjects she has researched is Lucille Desiree Ball of the I Love Lucy and Desilu fame. Several paragraphs in the book explain Balls life and how Kim Sherouse Krewson has written a book called Secret Namesake Sampler because she is convinced that everything that has ever happened has been written in names.Special to the Riverland News Sherouse Krewson also launches publishing company AUGIE SALZER For the Riverland News JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See REVIVAL page 9 Ivan Parker Singer is member of The Gaithers gospel group. See BOOK page 12 32-year-old resident raising funds for kidney transplant When Dorothy Flemton was born 32 years ago, she knew thered come a day when her life would be forever altered. For years, the life-long Dunnellon resident always monitored her health, knowing the inevitable would eventually occur. That day finally came in June 2011, as the 1999 Dunnellon High School graduate began dialysis treatments three days a week to combat her failing kidneys. When Flemton was born, she was diagnosed with Bartter Syndrome, a hereditary kidney disease thought to be caused by a defect in the kidneys ability to reabsorb potassium. This makes the kidneys remove too much potassium from the body. Sometimes, Bartter syndrome may occur in someone with no family history of the disorder. It is not known exactly how often Bartter syndrome occurs, but one study estimates it to affect 1.2 individuals per million people. Bartter syndrome affects both males and females of all ethnic backgrounds. One of five children, Flemton wasnt the lone family member to receive the diagnosis. Her sister, Reeshmah Fleming, was too. None of Flemtons three brothers tested positive for the disease. Flemton recalled when her sister, who died in 1994 of a massive heart attack, began dialysis treatments. Knowing the same fate awaited her, Flemton made frequent trips to the dialysis center with her sister. There, she learned more about the process and the toll dialysis would take on her body. I didnt understand back then, but as I got older I understood why she had to go through what she went through, Flemton said. I already knew what I was going to go through. Though the day finally arrived in June 2011, Flemtons doctors began preparing her in her late 20s when she began to show signs of fatigue and other telltale symptoms. In October 2010, her doctors placed a shunt in her to prepare for the inevitable. It takes a lot out of you, Flemton said about the three-time weekly dialysis treatments. You have some good days, you have some bad days. On my good days, I can go home and cook and clean. On my bad days, Ill sleep until 8 or 9 oclock. The dialysis treatments are just the beginning of a longer road ahead for Flemton. She needs a kidney transplant, and shes been approved for one. But before her name can be placed on the recipients list, she has to raise $5,000 for the initial supply of anti-rejection drugs shell have to take for the remainder of her life. For Flemton, the task is a tall one. No longer does she work the two jobs she held for years. Because of her three dialysis treatments a week, shes found full-time work fleeting. Though she does run a small catering business, her bad days often limit how many catering assignments she can take. I miss working, she said. I miss being able to do the things I loved, having the energy I had. A long-time member at Beulah Missionary Baptist Church, Flemton told her church family about her plight.

2 Riverland News, Thursday, January 3, 2013 FAMILY FEATURES T he holidays are the perfect time to gather with your nearest and dearest to create lasting memories. But who says you have to follow the same traditions as in years past? For a fresh take on the holidays, celebrate with a Spanishinspired feast of seafood. Seafood is a culinary mainstay in various parts of Spain, and its a big part of Nochebuena celebrations. Nochebuena is the name Spaniards give to Christmas Eve, but you can enjoy a Nochebuena-style dinner any time during the holidays with these delicious recipes from Martn Cdax Winery in Rias Baixas, Spain. Heres how: Start off with a beautiful Lobster Salad with Asparagus Herb Mayonnaise. Its easier than you think to season your favorite mayonnaise and use it to top steamed lobster, and its an impressive way to start a meal. Serve this simple, yet elegant, Pan-Seared Cod Fish on top of Crispy Bacon Mashed Potatoes, then top it all off with a savory White Bean and Olive Tapenade. These dishes are perfect to pair with an Albario, like the one from Martn Cdax, a crisp, elegant and dry white wine that is often dubbed the wine of the sea, due to its natural complement to seafood. Learn more at www.martincodaxwines.com.Lobster Salad with Asparagus Herb MayonnaiseYield: 4 servings 1/2 pound thin asparagus, tough stems removed 1/4 cup chopped mixed fresh herbs, such as chervil, parsley, tarragon or chives 1/3 cup mayonnaise 2 tablespoons champagne or sherry vinegar 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard 2 tablespoons walnut or hazelnut oil 2 1 1/4-pound lobsters, steamed, tail and claw meat removed from shell 4 cups mixed baby lettuce Juice of 1 lemon Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper Prepare large bowl of ice water, and set aside.

Turn fish and cook until golden and firm, about 3 to 5 minutes, spooning some of the butter over filets to keep moist. To serve: Mound mashed potatoes onto four serving plates. Place fish diagonally over mashed potatoes. Spoon tapenade over fish and top each with a slice of bacon. White Bean and Olive TapenadeYield: 4 servings 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 114-ounce can white beans, drained and rinsed 1 anchovy, optional 1/3 cup oil cured black olives, roughly chopped 1 small orange or lemon, 2 tablespoons juice, 1 teaspoon zest 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper Soak onions in cold water.

Turn off heat, stir in onions and parsley and season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Set aside until ready to serve.Crispy Bacon Mashed PotatoesYield: 4 servings 1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and quartered 4 slices bacon 1/2 cup half and half, warmed 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted Freshly grated nutmeg Kosher salt and freshly ground white pepper Place potatoes in large pot of cold salted water.

Drain, reserving 1 cup of the starchy water. Meanwhile, place bacon in large cold skillet. Turn on heat and cook until crispy, turning once, about 7 minutes. Drain bacon on paper towels, reserving bacon fat. Warm half and half slightly over medium heat in the same pot potatoes were boiling in. Add potatoes and 1 tablespoon reserved bacon fat.

vehicle stolen. The report described the vehicle as a white in color international rollback wrecker, which Belcher told officials was paid in full, but did not have full coverage insurance on it. Belcher advised authorities the vehicle had an old style rotator type emergency lights on top and Dunnellon Tire and Auto on both doors. I would hope that someone saw something and will come forward, said Belcher, noting the cost of such a vehicle likely starts at $60,000 or higher. Belcher said authorities told him they would check the security footage from the cameras at the police station as well as the red-light cameras at the three intersections in town to see if they could determine in. which direction the vehicle was heading and if a description of the suspect(s) could be made. Thatd be great if the cameras can find something, he said. Its not the first time a tow truck has been stolen from a local business. According to Citrus County Sheriffs Office records, Scallys Tow and Lube had a wrecker stolen in 2009. Anyone with information or who might have seen the vehicle is asked to call the Dunnellon Police Department at 4658510. A 30-year-old Inglis woman faces a charge of driving under the influence after blowing more than twice the legal limit, a Dec. 28 Dunnellon Police Department arrest report stated. According to the report, Jennifer A. Ralph was stopped after authorities observed her driving 43 mph in 35 mph zone along West Pennsylvania Avenue in a blue Toyota truck. Upon initiating a traffic stop, the report stated Ralph continued to travel an additional 300 yards before coming to a stop. The report stated Officer Aaron German made contact with Ralph, whom he noted had bloodshot watery eyes, slow, slurred speech in which he could detect the odor of alcoholic beverages emanating from her breath/body. German and Officer Scott Houts, the report stated, then asked Ralph to participate in field sobriety exercises to which she agreed. According to the report, Ralph failed each exercise she was asked to perform, which includes the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus Exercises; the Walk and Turn Exercise, which at one point during the exercise she told authorities: Im not trying to fool you, but Im not going to do something that I know I cant do; the One Leg Stand Exercise in which she told officers, let me just call my mom, I know I shouldnt have drove; and the Rhomberg Alphabet Recitation Exercise in which she could not recite the whole alphabet. The report stated Ralph was transported to the Marion County Jail, where she blew a 0.187 percent and 0.194 percent. The legal limit in Florida is 0.08 percent. Ralph was booked into the Marion County Jail, where her bond was set at $500. She made bail Dec. 28.

According to the report, James Robert Price was charged with both counts after deputies responded to the 8200 block of Southwest 204th Court in reference to a female who told authorities Price had struck her in the hand, face and forehead with a wooden cane after the two had argued about money. The report stated when deputies arrived on scene the woman had made her way to a neighbors house who allowed her to call 911. The woman, who was crying, told authorities she and Price were arguing about finances about 9:30 a.m. when Price picked up a wooden cane and struck her on her right hand, forehead and face. Deputies, in their report, noted the victim had two lacerations on her right hand and swelling of three knuckles on her fingers. The report also noted there were two small lacerations to both sides of her face. The victim told authorities she had washed most of the blood off of her face prior to their arrival. According to the report, the victim told authorities Price had dragged her by the hair to the floor and kicked her in the kidney area of her right side. She told officers she did not have any visible bruising to the area. She further advised Price pulled her back up onto the bed in the north bedroom and held a short sword, blade side to the right side of her throat and ordered her to stay put and not to leave or he would kill her. The report stated Price then went to the living room, placed the cane and the sword next to a chair and went to sleep. The victim told authorities she was in fear for her life to leave the residence until Price went to sleep at which time, the report stated, she was able to escape and call 911. The female told deputies she was held against her will by Price for two hours before she was able to call her for help. According to the report, authorities went to the residence where Price met them at the front door. Deputies said they asked Price what had happened. He told them he and the victim had been arguing and she became very loud. At first, the report stated, he did not strike her but then he told authorities he struck the victim with the cane to protect himself. The report stated deputies observed a short sword and cane on the floor next to an easy chair in the living room as it was described by the victim. Authorities noted the sword had small droplets of dried blood on the blade. Price denied holding the sword to the victims throat and could not explain how her blood was found on the blade. The blood from the laceration on the right of the victims face had dripped onto the sword. According to the report, Price was charged with aggravated domestic battery and false imprisonment. Post Miranda, Price told authorities the victim only received her injuries after he pushed her against the wall. According to Marion County Jail records, Prices bond was set at $6,500. He remained in the Marion County Jail as of press deadline Wednesday morning. 37-year-old charged with domestic battery, false imprisonment JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Inglis woman, 30, charged with DUI A member of the Florida Press Association352-489-2731 352-489-6593 (Fax) The Riverland News serves Dunnellon and the surrounding areas: Blue Cove, Chatmire, Hills of Ocala, Lake Tropicana, Rainbows End, Rainbow Lakes Estates, All the Rainbow Springs Area, Rio Vista and Vogt Springs.The Riverland News is delivered on Thursday to subscribers by our carriers and mail.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, January 3, 2013 River views City thanks community for support at lighting ceremonyThe city of Dunnellon once again coordinated the annual Light Up Dunnellon ceremony Nov. 30 at City Hall. I want to express my extreme gratitude to everyone who participated in making this event a success. The Dunnellon Community Chorale and the Dunnellon Community Youth Choir shared their beautiful voices by entertaining the audience throughout the evening with a variety of Christmas songs. Mayor Nathan Whitt served as master of ceremony for the event and was excited to see everyone having a good time. Also on the program for the evening was Dr. Abraham Robinson, pastor of New Second Bethel Missionary Baptist Church; Rev. Eric Cummings, pastor of Union Missionary Baptist Church; and Chaplain Ed Anthony, Cross at the River Cowboy Church. Councilwoman Lynne McAndrew helped light the now 20-foot Christmas tree next to the gazebo at City Hall. An awesome thank you goes to the students and staffs of Harmony Preschool, Ready-Set-Go Daycare, and Dream Believe Achieve Daycare for providing beautiful handmade decorations for the tree. Santa Claus, chauffeured by the Dunnellon Fire Department, stopped by for a special visit and poised for pictures with many of the children. Thank you to Carmelas Restaurant, Simply Seafood, Reuben Calypso and Cadence Bank for providing delicious goodies to everyone and to the Historic Shoppes of Dunnellon and the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce for their help in promoting the event. I would be remiss if I did not thank city staff and volunteers for helping make this event wonderful for the community and to City Manager Lisa Algiere and the entire Dunnellon City Council for their support. And thank you to the Dunnellon community for attending the event. It has grown to the point that we are considering relocating the tree lighting ceremony to Ernie Mills Park in 2013 to better accommodate everyone. On behalf of the city of Dunnellon, thank you many times over.Dawn M. Bowne, City Clerk State park volunteer thanks communityAs a volunteer at Rainbow Springs State Park, I would like to say thank you to all for coming out and making this a great season for all of us. Thank you to the Riverland News and the Ocala Star-Banner for giving us such great coverage and pictures. Let's not forget the "Sly Guy," who always puts in a good word for us. It was very interesting to hear where all the people came from: Jacksonville, Tampa, Hernando and Inverness to name a few. To see all of our hard work and planning enjoyed by so many warmed our hearts. Thank you again and a Happy New Year to all.Rosemarie Kleuker,Rainbow Springs New year signals a time to move forward A nother year has come and gone. Another year older; another year wiser. I learn something new every year, 2012 being no exception. I learned I enjoy staying home more than I enjoy working. I learned you have to give your teenage granddaughter some space, and I learned that its not easy watching your parents growing older. I also learned a simple act of buying a homeless man some shoes did more to move the world than anything else did this year, and a storm out of nowhere can destroy a whole seaside neighborhood. I looked back over things I wished for last January and I have to tell you if I was a betting woman Id be broke. Too many of our young military men are still overseas fighting. Politicians are still at odds, and even though I know President Obama has the capability to improve things I, unfortunately, still feel the hatred for this man around me every single day. Kim Kardashian has not mellowed. Casey Anthony still runs free, and we are no closer to solving the mystery of JonBonet. The Broncos did not end up going to the Super Bowl, but they did improve once they let Tim Tebow play, which brings me to one of my wishes for the New Year. Lets hope this will be the year for him to get back to his Florida roots where everybody loves him and hell be appreciated. Simon Cowell didnt get any nicer, and Donald Trump didnt lose all his money. But it would be nice if he would lose his voice for a little bit. Cameron Diaz didnt get fat, nor did Neil Patrick Harris take over for Regis. Dancing with the Stars cast I predicted for 2012? Nope, none of them were on the show. Yet, I still have hope. May I add Richard Gere and Tatum Channing to that list? I said I would try to eat better, exercise more, have more patience with people, and excel in everything I do. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah none of it happened. In 2013, I would like to see more of Steve Harvey, Ricky Martin, One Direction, Nancy ODell, Meryl Streep, Rob Lowe andKatey Sagal. How about less of Honey Boo Boo,Rush Limbaugh, Brad Pitt doing Chanel commercials,singing reality shows and silly infomercials like the one where the Q-tips make even grown men yell ouch? I hope Kirstie Alley finally keeps the weight off, and Jason Quartermaine comes back to General Hospital.Oh and I hope its the year that Parenthoodand Sons of Anarchyare recognized with Emmys. Long live Bones,NCIS and Survivor and kudos to some new shows Im beginning to love such as Nashville and Chicago Fire. 2013 may just be the year I start pampering myself again with manicures and pedicures. Somehow Ive gotten away from all that. But I do think I deserve it once again. My personal goal for 2013: to take over all the duties of the birthdays and the holidays with calm, peace and organization. On the family side, I hope my granddaughter continues on the path to happiness and I hope my grandson The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

RIVERLAND NEWS LETTERS JERSEY GIRL TIME TO SMILE D ont you just love the sound of the pitter patter of little feet? The melody of a heart beat? No! Yes, I said no! Wait, its not what you think. I am not a baby hater. I dont enjoy the pitter patter of little feet when it is four in the morning and those feet are coming from inside my bedroom walls. The heartbeat I am hearing is my own, racing thud-thud-thud. A little creature has taken up residents in my walls. I cant call him a varmint because he may be some cute little fur ball trying to get out of the cold. Maybe hell introduce himself as Charlie, the chipmunk. Hell sing a song about how hard it is to find a warm spot to lay his weary little head. No, no, no! Wallace get a hold of yourself. You cant name him, because you know how this is going to end and it wont be pretty. He is a critter that needs to go. Stay focused Wallace! Actually, I cant call him anything because I dont know what he or she is. Egads what if its pregnant? I cant think about that. The thought of exterminating a creature is bad enough, but terminating a mother to be ... I cant bear it. Disney, this is all your fault. You make it hard to kill those cute animated fur balls. Sorry, Alvin. Sorry Mickey, but one of us has to go. This all started well over a month ago. I heard him scampering around the duct work. I banged on the wall and he stopped. You dont want to be around me when I am woken from a sound sleep. I get very crabby. I thought I was dreaming and fell back to sleep. No such luck. Scamper, scamper, scamper. I ran to the laundry room and grabbed a sponge mop. What do you want from me at that hour? I wasnt thinking clearly. Maybe the thought of a bath might scare him off. I turned on the lights and banged on the walls. It was about 3 a.m. and I know my brother would kill me if I called him on a work night. I was shaking like a leaf. Well, I do that on a daily basis, but it was worse. My stomach was turning and I was a nervous wreck. There is a pocket door between my bedroom and bathroom. What if he squeezed through it? What do I do? Wildlife scares me senseless. The fear was welling up in me. I was in a full on panic. OK, what would a brave adult do in this situation? I couldnt think of a darn thing, so I took a tranquilizer and fell asleep on the couch with the lights on. The next day my brother put a trap in the attic. He has come back a few times since Writer issues an SOS Rolling into 2013 with a wish list A h, its a new year, a fresh start for many of us. A few of us have penned our New Years Resolutions, undoubtedly with goals to exercise, eat healthier and shed a few unwanted holiday pounds. All worthy goals for sure, easy to attain if everyone remains committed to their list. For me personally, I didnt take the time to make a list of goals for the new year. In years past, Id promise to exercise and eat healthier. By the time the Super Bowl was upon us, I found myself gorging on chips, dips, pizza and cookies. Sure I would chuck a few veggies from the nearby veggie tray on my plate to maintain an appearance I was eating healthy. Exercise was futile as it was either too cold or too hot to go for a short jog or a bicycle ride. Perhaps New Years Resolutions arent about proper exercise and diet. Maybe, its about making the most of a new year, an opportunity to make amends and set ones sights on being a better person. Everything else simply falls into place. Reflecting on the past year, I believe now is the time for the community to truly come together and work toward a common goal: use Dunnellons natural resources to make the area, not just a crown jewel in the state, but in the world. Dunnellon welcomes tens of thousands of tourists on a yearly basis, whether those folks come here to enjoy the wonderful bass fishing the area lakes offer, to see our wonderful state park or simply enjoy a lazy day on the Rainbow River. Each of us knows those are crown jewels. Individually or as a collective whole, its what brought us to Dunnellon and the surrounding communities. We treasure our natural resources, almost to a fault. Folks cringe when tourism is mentioned. Others shudder when it is suggested we build an eco-friendly resort along or near the Rainbow River, as if it cannot be done and would further jeopardize the health of the springs and the river. I believe, for one, if we embrace the river for its potential as an See SMILE page 7 See JERSEY page 7 Kathleen Wallace Audrey Beem THE OTHER GUY See OTHER page 7 Jeff Bryan Editor

Christmas for veterans Special to the Riverland News County accepting applications for 2013 Citizens Academy Get your keyboard or pen/pencil ready the opportunity to register for Marion Countys Citizens Academy is finally here. The county is now accepting applications for its 2013 class. A free 10-week program, the Citizens Academy provides an opportunity for local residents and business owners to get an inside look at county government and its operations, services and challenges. Participants will attend sessions on a different department or facet of county government each week starting in March. Sessions last approximately three hours and include presentations, tours and hands-on activities at various county locations. Citizens Academy Class of 2012 graduate Denise Azis said that the program answered a lot of questions that affect everyday life. I have a better understanding of how the essential 911 service works. I can better appreciate what the fire and rescue people do. I also understand the solid waste and utilities, she said. Its also good knowing where the various sites are located, and I know that if I called any of them (county staff) with a question, they would be kind and helpful. Fellow Class of 2012 grad Rich Lambrecht noted that as a supervisor of his local community development district, he is frequently contacted by neighbors who have questions about government services and responsibilities the answers often involve Marion County government. He encourages others to take part in the program. While its good to have an opinion on the effectiveness of our county government and county commissioners, it is even better to have an understanding of what they are doing and how they are doing it, he said. Marion County residents or business owners ages 18 and older are eligible to attend. All participants must complete a registration form and be accepted prior to attending and go to a minimum of eight of the 10 sessions to graduate.

I want my daughters to continue to grow and continue to be loved the way they deserve. I want my mom and dad to enjoy another year of healthy life and new adventures. In the meantime, my husband is finally going to hit the lottery and we will be moving to the Rainbow River. Yes, crazy but true.Even if we hit the lotto, we are staying right here in Dunnellon. Then, when I wake up from this nice dream, I will start another day full of family, love and a lot of laughter. Because thats what life is truly all about and what I wish for in the coming year. Happy 2013 to everybody. Hey wait a minute. Isnt this the same exact thing I wished for last year? You mean we didnt hit the lotto and none of this came true? OK, then Ill try again next year and wish extra hard. that day. I was so exhausted one day I told him to turn the lights out when he leaves and I rolled over. A recent night was the final straw. I needed to get serious. He had to go. It was 4 a.m. when the tip-toeing started. I banged on the bedroom wall. Having flown in from Alabama earlier that day I was in no mood to be woken up by an uninvited guest. In my best impersonation of my sisters scariest voice, I yelled GEEET OOOUT! In hindsight I should have said go away. My worst nightmare was coming true. He was in the wall with the pocket door. I turned on the light, ran out of the room slamming the door behind me. Thud, thud, thud went my beating heart. So, now he is in my warm bedroom and I am standing in my living room. Naked! What is wrong with this picture? My feet are ice cold and I need to cover them in case he comes out. Think Wallace, find a pair of shoes! My flip-flops are by the door so I put them on. Yes, I know they dont provide warmth or protection. Again, what do you want from me at that hour? I scurry over to the phone but I cant think who I should call yep, hes in my bed where I should be and I am the one who is scurrying! Do I call 911? Will the police come for an animal in your wall? I stand there paralyzed on my wobbly feet. Seriously, I am terrified and I cant move. Thank goodness this house came with a second bathroom because I had to use the bathroom so bad. If I didnt use the facilities I think I would still be standing there. I regained my senses and made my way to the bathroom. Wallace, think! What should I do in this situation? Eureka! The light bulb went on. Frantically, I ran to the laundry room and grabbed some dirty clothes. I left him the house key and I slept in the car. I told you the end wasnt going to be pretty. I sure hope he remembers to pay the mortgage. Its due on the 15th.

Marion County understands a key to revitalizing Silver Springs is embracing its potential as an economic engine. Why then, as a community, do we fret about creating a life-long sustainable economic engine here that would lead to job growth, more of our youth staying in the community and less crazy revenue-generating schemes by local officials? There are going to be many people who disagree with this notion as they have done for many years. Theyll talk about capping the number of recreational users, i.e. tubers, on the river. They wont offer alternatives. Thats where the root of the problem lies. Too many people see the river as theirs, not ours. How about we, as a community, push for a ban of fast-release fertilizers? Why dont we condone green lawn rules several communities have in place? Members of local property owners associations should be pushing for a rewrite of those rules, encouraging the use of droughtresistance lawns and Florida friendly landscaping. All of the wells being dug in the past year are just as harmful to the health of the springs as folks pump thousands of gallons a day upon their yards to give it a healthy green in the middle of the winter. As we move into the New Year full steam ahead, we encourage those who are in favor of moving toward a common goal of making Dunnellon a thriving community for years to come, speak up now. For those so adamantly against it, wed ask for your input so long as its for the good of the common goal, not to derail the goal of our future.

I know the only thing that got me through the year was the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and boy is she graciously tenacious. I was sure everything would collapse and of course, several times I collapsed in my easy chair. It is a New Year, or so they tell us but I have my suspicions. After this latest episode with the Mayans calendar, I am not too sure what date it is or what year it is, for that matter. They certainly got everything wrong and I have my suspicions about the rest of it. How do we really know that January 1 is actually January 1? Moreover, how do we know what year it is exactly? I think somewhere along the line somebody has pulled a scam on civilization and has messed up our calendars. If the Mayans got it wrong, maybe we have it wrong also. Whatever day and whatever year it is I am going to celebrate the New Year. If I am wrong, I have a lot of company. When we celebrate the New Year, there is nothing new about it. Everything we did last year we are going to be doing this year only we will be one year older. Perhaps as we get older we forget about what we have done and think we are doing something new. Hooray for senility! I really do not care about that; my philosophy is, lets do it all over again. If it is worth doing the first time, it is worth doing again. This brings me to a great point, which is, some things are worth repeating while other things are not. It is trying to find out the difference between these two that makes life challenging. I do not mind repeating things if I am in charge of what I am repeating. I think we all should choose what we are going to repeat. For example, I wish I could choose a year to repeat. If I could repeat any year, it would be 1971. That year represents the greatest con in the history of mankind. I am not sure anything like it has ever happened before or since. That was the year I married a young lady who turned out to be the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. What bothers me about this is why did she really marry me? Was it my charm and good looks or did she think I was rich? There have been times I have wanted to query her on this very subject but then, I am always afraid she will tell me the truth. I do not mind the truth if it does not involve anything personally. I just will settle with the fact that that was the year I conned her into marrying me. We have been a great team ever since. She has kept me straight and I have given her opportunities to exercise that career, which she has become quite proficient.

this marriage is the fact that she has been faithful to point out my mistakes. Through her help, I discovered I have quite a few mistakes. I begin every year with a clean slate. I am able to celebrate January 1 with no mistakes whatsoever but then the next day my wife begins the ominous task of pointing out my mistakes. This is a joint effort, which leaves me out of joint often. I have a little theory along this line. I think that if it is a mistake you have made before it should not count anymore. I think the only thing that should be legitimate to point out are new mistakes. I find myself so busy practicing my old mistakes that I rarely get around to making new mistakes. All these years I have reveled in my old mistakes. Trying to find something new is a great strain on my little grey cells. At this point in my life, they are exhausted and are encouraging me to rely upon those old mistakes and give them a well-deserved rest. At my stage in life I think new is overrated and, if experience is anything, something new is always taxing and in more ways than one. Do not let the government find out that you have something new or Uncle Sam will come knocking at your door with a gentle request for tax money. There is an old saying that says insanity is doing the same things over and over expecting different results. Well, that does not describe me. I do not want different results. I like the results I have. I like doing the same thing over again because I know what to expect. And if ignorance in this area is bliss, I am the most blissful person on the planet. My challenge this year is to surprise my wife with some unexpected new mistakes. Just one! To get on the right track for the New Year, I start with the Bible. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away: behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV). Instead of just celebrating the New Year, I plan also to celebrate that new creature in Christ. No mistake about it. Dr. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala. Call him at 866552-2543 or email james snyder2@att.net. His website is www.james snyderministries.com. Christ, no matter their denomination. We want to let the Holy Spirit convict them so they can give their lives to Christ, he explained. When planning began, Mihok said church officials did not realize there was a movement, led by the Billy Graham Ministry, to launch revival sthroughout churches nationwide. Mihok said First United Methodist followed Grahams model for a revival and much of the training volunteers went through will help assist with the nationwide revival planned for this year. We want people to know what the good Lord has in store for the nation, Mihok said. This fits in so beautifully with what were doing. The good Lord is guiding us. In addition to the revival celebration, First United Methodist Church will host a motorcycle ride through the community to launch the celebration. All bikers should assemble at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 5, at the First United Methodist Church at 21501 State Road Highway 40, for prayer and the blessing of vehicles. All riders may then join a Ride for the Son with the Florida Chapter of the Christian Motorcyclists Association. The ride will end at Dunnellon Plaza for a time of prayer for the revival on the evenings of Jan. 6 to 9. Mihok said by chance, he had met Claude Ray, a former pastor turned motorcycle evangelist, at a diner in Beverly Hills. The pair had struck up a conversation about their lives. During their chat, Ray shared his testimony with Mihok in which two women who overheard the conversation, thanked Ray for his testimony. Hes witnessed a lot of things, Mihok said, noting he was given an invitation to join the group for a meeting. Mihok said he learned the group has 750 chapters nationwide and about 35 chapters in Florida. They are quite an interesting group, Mihok said. They have raised millions of dollars every year through their Ride for the Son event. They get people to donate money for every mile they put on their bike and those funds go to third world countries where they purchase motorcycles for pastors, who have more than parish to attend to. It allows them to get around. They even purchase horses for them. The ride will take motorcyclists through town along Pennsylvania Avenue and U.S. 41 where the event will conclude at Ernie Mills Park on Bostick Street for a Rally at the Park in which a prayer will be said for the Holy Spirit to stir the community. Its really going to be an interesting event, Mihok said. The Community Revival Celebration is free to all, Mihok said. Theres been a lot of planning and organizing, he explained. God has led us through this. I have never had the experience of being part of something like this. This church and the people there are great. Its even hard to describe how I feel about this event. I feel like an expectant father. The good lord is giving us direction and opening doors. For more information about the revival, call the church office at 489-4026. In addition to the fourday revival celebration, the church will sponsor a gospel concert, featuring Ivan Parker of the famed gospel group, The Gaithers, Saturday, Jan. 5, in its church sanctuary. Tickets are $12 per person for general admission, which means tickets do not have assigned seating, allowing concert goers seating based on a first-come, first served basis. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. Concessions will be available before and after the concert. Were hoping for the Ivan Parker event to be a big hit for the community, said Elizabeth Letchworth, one of the concert organizers. We are planning other gospel events in Dunnellon in the years to come if this first one is successful. When you think about it, there really isnt a place in Central Florida where fans of this type of music can hear good, professional gospel music can come to see live performances. We would like Dunnellon to become that place in Central Florida where we can attract good singers and musicians and fans of all ages can come and hear live-traditional gospel music. Tickets for the concert are still available. To purchase tickets, call 489-0099 or Boomtown Media at 489-0099 or visit www. villagecrier.info, under the Dunnellon tab.

someone every week, you oftentimes dont know whats going on in peoples lives, said Michelle Hardaway, a church member and wife of the pastor. For her to come to the church and tell her testimony, it was difficult for her. I know how hard it was for Dorothy to come forward. She is not the type of person to ask people for help. But in this situation, we have to ask for help. We need, not only our church family, but for the community to make this happen for Dorothy. We dont want her to be stressed financially. It has hindered her from having a full-time job. Weve told Dorothy this is possible, we can help you raise the income, the seed money for the surgery. Thats something we want to do. As it stands now, the church will host a benefit concert featuring local singer, Robbie Williams and the Central Florida College Christian Group as well as other local talent, at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 25. The church is also planning to host bake sales, with the assistance of Flemton, whose self-proclaimed passion is cooking. I love to cook anything, she said. Just give me the recipe and Ill try it out. Hardaway attested to Flemtons talents in the kitchen. Thats her talent, thats her passion, she explained. Shes a better cook than I am. Flemton said the support from her church has been great. When I first came to the church and told them, they came up with great ideas, Flemton said. Mrs. Hardaway got directly on the job. Hardaway said plans are under way to set up an account for those wishing to contribute a donation to Flemtons cause. To contribute or for more information, call the chruch at 465-7557. she was successful, then states her secret namesake is Light much Desires to have a Ball. My sampler book is filled with 72 namesakes to validate the power of a name, Krewson said. Everything has been introduced, When the name manifests itself, you know it. The age-old universal law of traction is basically positive thoughts and words that draw things to you, according to Krewson. I didnt understand the power of it and I was leary if it was cult or something. she said. God is going to want you to be positive. The whole idea of positive thinking started when Krewsons daugher, Kaylee, had her car broken into and her purse was stolen. Trying to think positive, Krewson called the police, looked for the purse and started canceling the credit cards. I didnt want to panic. I wanted to be positive, she said. About a week later a policeman knocked on the door and brought back the purse. Positive thinking, a book called The Secret and going to a medical transcription school got Krewson inspired to start her book. The school taught me to tear apart the words to better understand them and The Secret started me on the teaching process. Its how I learned to inquire about the names, Krewson said. If it works to tear apart words, why doesnt it work for names. One of the first names she worked on is Eiffel. Gustave Eiffel built his tower in Paris, which had 72 names of French scientists, engineers and other notable people engraved on the side of the famous structure. There is also the Eifel Mountains in Germany. You have the Eiffel Tower, the Eifel Mountains and then you have the eye full. It is the meaning of names and the pronunciation that bring about the parable, Krewson said. It all was a set-up for me to write this book. This book is called a sampler because she has six more completed books on different names that are ready, but still need to be edited and prepared for publishing. Everyone who reads this book will understand that this really works, Krewson said. I didnt give it all away. I believe there are things I know that even theologians dont know. Krewson also started her own publishing company called the Keeper of the Keys Publishing to help out other authors get their books published. I know a lady who has written a childrens book and another lady has a tragic life that she wrote about and I want to help them fulfill their dream of publishing their books, Krewson said. Her ebook is now available on Amazon.com and the printed version will be available within a few weeks.
