Mayor to push for new program Mayor Nathan Whitt is preparing to move full steam ahead with his plans to mend fences. The first-term mayor unveiled a portion of his plans at Wednesday nights City Council workshop for his Mending Fences: Friends and Neighbors Program. To incorporate aspects of his program, though, hell need the support of his fellow council members. Two days prior to pitching the plan to the City Council, Mayor Whitt admitted he has had to revise several components of his plan because of details about to emerge regarding the future of Greenlight Dunnellon Communications. Still, Mayor Whitt isnt about to give up on putting together a plan to help the city solve its debt problems while, hopefully, saving the lofty fiber to the home program. Among key components of the program are: Asking Burton & Associates to conduct a new rate Nathan Whitt Job losses decline Unemployment rate drops to 7.5 percent Ocala MSA continues to lead Florida metros with highest job-growth rate The jobless rate in April for Workforce Connections Citrus, Levy and Marion counties region was 7.5 percent, down 0.3 percentage points over the month and 2.1 percent lower than the same time last year. The unemployment rate for the region is the lowest since June 2008 when it was 7.7 percent. For the fifth consecutive month, the Ocala/Marion County metropolitan area led the state with the fastest job-growth rate at 3.2 percent, with 2,900 new jobs over the year. Floridas job-growth rate during the same period was 1.6 percent. According to the release of the April 2013 unemployment rates by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO), Marion County posted an unemployment rate of 7.5 percent, a drop of 0.3 percent over the month and the lowest it has been since June 2008 when the rate was 7.6 percent; Citrus Countys rate fell 0.3 percentage points to 7.6 percent, the lowest since June 2008 (8.1 percent); and Levy County dropped 0.1 percentage points to 7.6 percent, the lowest since July 2008 (7.7 percent). Local rates are not seasonally adjusted. Floridas not seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in April was 6.8 percent and the national rate was 7.1 percent. Rusty Skinner, Workforce Connections chief executive officer, said the data indicate that this has been another positive month in our trending related to an expanding labor force, expanding employment and reduced unemployment. In all three counties, there is positive movement in each of these areas. Out of a regional labor force of 206,773, which remained virtually unchanged over the month, there were 15,535 unemployed, down 572 over the month and down 4,205 since April 2012. Here is how the employment numbers break down for each county in the Workforce Connection region: Citrus Countys labor force grew by 83 to 56,493, the number of employed rose by 220 to 52,187 while the number of jobless fell by 137 to 4,306. One year ago, Patriotic pride Riverland News file photoFrank Strobl, above, dressed as Uncle Sam during the Dunnellon Christmas Parade, said Memorial Day is about what made, and still makes, the U.S. a great nation. The Austrian immigrant who moved to America in 1955 with his six siblings and parents, recalled his first major sight coming through New York harbor the Statue of Liberty and the lasting impression that still resonates through him nearly 60 years later. WWII veteran recalls Battle of the Bulge The famous Battle of the Bulge occurred more than 70 years ago, but the memories are still sharp and clear for one south Dunnellon resident. Clinton Burns, 91, recalls with precision the time he spent serving his country after he was drafted many years ago. The age limit for the draft was changed to 18to 45-year-olds, Burns recalled. I was 19 at that time and thats how they caught me. He started his basic training for the U.S. Army at Camp Claiborne in Louisiana. The instruction time was cut short as the recruits were sent to Little Rock, Ark., to help control rising waters. We set up sand bags to fight the flood, Burns said. AUGIE SALZER/For the Riverland NewsClinton Burns proudly holds his framed U.S. Army honorable discharge papers and on his wall is a Certificate of Congressional Recognition from former Congresswoman Karen Thurman on Jan. 19, 2002. Immigrant has passion for U.S. history, country, service For some, Memorial Day is about barbecues with family and friends. For others, the decadeslong national holiday is about more, so much more. For Frank Strobl, Memorial Day is about what made, and still makes, the U.S. a great nation. The Austrian immigrant who moved to America in 1955 with his six siblings and parents, recalled his first major sight coming through New York harbor the Statue of Liberty and the lasting impression that still resonates through him nearly 60 years later. What an impressive sight that was for a young boy to see, explained Strobl, a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and a member of American Legion Post No. 58. We spoke no English and needed to learn everything about America from scratch. As a youth, Strobl attended St. Procops Catholic School where he learned English quickly as well as all he could about American and the state of Ohio history. I couldnt get enough of it, the longtime Dunnellon resident said. What a wonderful country we had moved to. We even had hot AUGIE SALZER For the Riverland News Longtime resident was part of Gen.

the unemployment rate was 9.5 percent with 5,330 unemployed and two years ago, Citrus Countys unemployment rate was 11 percent with 6,209 people out of work. Levy Countys labor remained virtually unchanged, growing by one to 16,195 since March, employment rose by 17 to 14,968 and the number of unemployed dropped by 16 to 1,227. In April 2012, the unemployment rate was 9.1 percent and the number of unemployed was 1,493. Two years ago, the jobless rate was 10.3 percent with 1,740 people unemployed. Marion Countys labor force expanded by 1,016 to 134,085, the number of those with jobs rose by 1,435 to 124,083 and those who were unemployed fell by 419 to 10,002. That represents an over-theyear increase of 4,508 of those with jobs and a decrease of 2,915 in the number of unemployed when the unemployment rate was 9.7 percent. Two years ago, the unemployment rate of 11.7 percent when 15,616 were without jobs. Skinner said the expansion of the number of those with jobs compared to the more modest decline may at first blush seem odd but is actually seen as another good sign. This shows another positive in that it represents renewed job search by persons who previously may have been discouraged, he said. Either the 1,000 person difference resulted in workers who had stepped out of the labor force and werent actively seeking work, but returned and were counted as unemployed, or they returned to the labor force in the last month and found work. While the Ocala MSA continued to hold the fifth highest unemployment rate among Floridas metro areas, total nonagricultural employment was 94,700, up 2,900 jobs over the year. For the fifth month in a row, the Ocala metro area had the highest job-growth rate at 3.2 percent, followed by Tampa-St. PetersburgClearwater (+3.1 percent), and Jacksonville (+2.8 percent). The Ocala MSA also tied with the NaplesMarco Island metro area for the highest growth rate in information employment (+7.1 percent) for all metro areas in Florida. Rebecca Rust, DEOs chief economist, said that April was the first month since May 2008 that all Florida counties had jobless rates below 10 percent. Rust said that the percentage of job leavers those who voluntarily leave jobs is up over the month from 7.5 to 7.9 percent. Thats an indicator that the economy is up, when people feel confident and leave their jobs voluntarily, she said. running water, indoor bathtubs and indoor toilet facilities. Milk was delivered to your doorstep. You werent forced to walk down to the local dairy with your little liter can and buy milk that would freeze when you walked home. After college, Strobl enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, traveling overseas in 1969, where he was stationed on Guam. My overseas experience opened my eyes, recalled Strobl, who helps spread U.S. history by portraying Uncle Sam to the areas elementary schools. I experienced the wounded soldiers coming through our base to be sent home to heal. It must have hit me then, as I saw these young men going home, that what we were doing as the nations military meant more than just making war. It meant that the folks at home, could continue to live freely, observe their holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, mow their lawns, go fishing, picnic and do all the things that our Constitution gives an American the right to do. Reflecting on past wars and current wars, Strobl said the same battles our country is faced with today, battles that our young men and women, are currently fighting, allow citizens their same freedoms. I give thanks to be here in this wonderful country, he exclaimed. God Bless all the soldiers, airmen, sailors, Marines, coast guardsmen who have protected us from the evil entities of our world. It is because of what those brave soldiers did then, and the current brave military is doing for us now, making the great sacrifice for us, the people of the United States of America, so we can live free, worship freely and enjoy the freedoms our Constitution has endowed to us. John Taylor, a past mayor of Dunnellon and commander of Post No. 58 for the past five years, praised the efforts of his fellow service member for the work he does in promoting American history. Frank is somebody that you can depend on, Taylor said of Strobl, the current first vice commander-elect. Hes been involved with the Legion the past four years and hes taken over as membership chairman as well as a number of other duties. Every time you give him a task or assignment, you dont have to go back and check to see how hes doing. Hes efficient. Hes one of those guys you can depend on; hes always willing to help. Hes always willing to give, willing to step forward, willing to do what it takes to get the job done. Thats what makes him a great Legionnaire. His patriotism, his love of the U.S., is no secret, Taylor said. For the past two years, hes been named as the Legionnaire of the year. You dont receive that for not being patriotic, Taylor said. Its because of his dedication to his fellow soldiers and his fellow Legionnaires. It speaks a lot about his patriotism, his love of his country and his fellow military veterans. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, May 23, 2013 Best of the Best four years in a row HOURS: Mon.

Solution to puzzle on Page 5 MEMORIAL DAY HISTORYAccording to usamemorialday.org, Memorial Day was officially proclaimed May 5, 1868, by Gen. John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was first observed on May 30 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. The website also stated the first state to officially recognize the holiday was New York in 1873. It is now celebrated in almost every state on the last Monday in May passed by Congress with the National Holiday Act of 1971. In 2000, to help re-educate and remind Americans of the true meaning of Memorial Day, the National Moment of Remembrance resolution was introduced asking that at 3 p.m. local time, for all Americans, to voluntarily and informally observe in their own way a Moment of remembrance and respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to taps.

Mayor Whitt also wants the study to implement lower rates across the board for all users, not just city residents, and eliminate the 25 percent surcharge for utility customers outside the city limits. Mayor Whitt is hopeful that yanking the surcharge and implementing a new rate structure will bring Rainbow Springs residents into the fold as Greenlight customers as well as drop their current lawsuit against the city I want to get the lawsuit to go away, Mayor Whitt said. But we need to get something in writing from those folks if it does, but I dont know what reality of any of these goals is by doing this. Some of those folks up there are the vocal minority; they are not speaking for majority. Hopefully, it would generate some Greenlight customers. Its purely speculation, because not all of Rainbow Springs is built out, its just the southern portion. To build out the whole development, Id have to spend another $1 million to get northern edge built out. Overall, he said his plan is a general good will idea. I dont know if its going to hold water, pun somewhat intended, he said. I have to get Burton & Associates to provide clarification on the numbers. Those numbers werent clear before. The light has been shone upon and were starting to get our head around them. Now we have to take what we know and go with it. Those numbers are different now since Lisa has moved on. I dont know if it was her inability to get them. I do believe she was in over her head. She was being manipulated for lack of a better word. I dont know if it was advice she was being given, I dont know if the Council was aware of it. I just dont know. But were grabbing the truth as often as possible, and getting that truth is going to set us free. The other aspect of the plan Mayor Whitt is hopeful his counterparts would be willing to adopt is the family plan. That plan, Mayor Whitt said, would allow those users whose households have more than three people to be charged at a lower tier. Ive been talking to a woman who has seven children, all of various ages, Whitt said. And her water bill, on average, is between $250 and $300 per month. They are considering moving, because she cannot afford that. Shes lived here for 10 years and just cannot afford it. The family plan is a good idea, because the current rates are killing those folks who have kids, who have large families. The retired couples watering their lawn, thats something youve got to deal with on your own. There are ways to combat that, too. They can put in an irrigation meter; then theyre not paying the sewer rate.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, May 23, 2013 R IVER VIEWS The Newspaper built on Community Pride. Publisher Gerry Mulligan Regional Manager John Provost Editor Jeff Bryan Member of the Florida Press Association RIVERLAND NEWS Residents key in assisting food drive, stamping out hungerThank you to the Dunnellon branch of the U.S. Postal Service in their annual drive to Help Stamp Out Hunger. The work they did in collecting and distributing the food to the various agencies in our area was amazing. Thanks also go to the patrons in this area for all that they left in or near their mailboxes. We can all continue in our mission to feed the hungry. Volunteers at Helping Hands Food PantrySt. John the Baptist Catholic Community Citys budget is stressed beyond meansFor two years, citizens have been speaking out at the Dunnellon City Council Meetings about high costs of Greenlight Communication, high cost of the new water rates, the high cost of debt service due to new bond issues and now the new mayor has made public the high cost of legal fees. At the end of the May 8 City Council Workshop, Mayor Nathan Whitt pointed out that the part-time city attorney was getting over $39,500 a month in fees or over $474,000 a year. Checking with the city of Dunnellons 2013 Budget, this is more than the cumulative salary of the Dunnellon Police Department staff, except the chief, of $474,675. To view the scale of this cost item, the budgeted ad valorem tax income for the city this year is $852,295. The projected legal expense if allowed to continue will represent 55 percent of all ad valorem taxes received. At Mondays City Council meeting, Mayor Whitt and Councilman Erik Collup wanted to address this high expenditure by terminating the contract with the current law firm and advertise for a new firm where the expenditure for legal services would be under control. The other three council members who had voted to purchase three water/wastewater systems, start annexation action to double the area of the city and launch a communication utility could not bring themselves to start dealing with the citys fiscal problem. Ironically, one of the tasks City Manager Lisa Algiere suggested after her resignation letter was accepted was for the Death of an icon rekindles memories Y ou dont usually make new friends when youre my age. Youre too busy with the family and you already have your established friends whom you turn to when needed. So when a new friend comes into your life its a nice surprise. We all have those work friends that you do things with but you know if you didnt work together you would never hang out. They say people come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime. The ones that last a lifetime can never be replaced. And how do we pick our friends? Men make friends based on their interests I think. My husband hangs out with guys who like to do the same stuff that he does: tinker in the garage, fix and repair stuff and drink beer. With women,it starts with a mutual connection, and then proceeds with conversation. At this point, it can either stall or continue. If you have some common ground, such as children or grandchildren, the friendship can start to develop. But women are limited, because our outside interests sometimes cease once we start a family. Russell said Im jealous because he has so many friends and I have none and, in a way, hes probably right. When Im shopping, eating out or going to the movies, Im always with my mother or my daughters, who are actually my three best friends. My dad always said my real friends were sitting around the dinner table and that has always stuck with me. I proceed with caution. I love the innocence of a child when they come running over to you at the playground and announce they have a new best friend. When you ask what their name is, they reply: I dont know. Theres one friend Ive managed to keep in touch with. We made a pact many, many years ago that no matter what happened or how busy we get we would always take each other out on our respective birthdays. We have kept this pact for more than 20 years, through children, grandchildren, sickness and death. My birthday is in February and hers is in August, which makes our time together every six months. I look forward to our dinners. Its always nice, too, when you have another couple friend who you and your spouse can hang out with, but that is exceptionally hard to find. I seem to have nothing in common with Russells friends wives and vice versa, but we have developed a few throughout the years who we look forward to seeing.

THE OTHER GUY LETTERS JERSEY GIRL GUEST COLUMN Enough is enough, help save Dunnellon. The lack of transparency and accountability of the actions by city officials concerning the many problems that now trouble Dunnellon are directly leading to the financial ruin of our little town. In the past few years, almost all of the financial decisions approved by the City Council have directly contributed to the economic downward spiral that Dunnellon is currently experiencing. Apparently, disregarding any fiscal responsibility to its constituents, past City Councils have made, and the present City Council continues to make, financially irresponsible decisions. I can only empathize with the current mayor as he faces an uphill battle to resolve the citys problems against such opposition. I will quote a business maxim put forth by Professor Peter Drucker, an Austrian-born American management consultant, educator and author whose writings have contributed to the philosophical and practical foundations of the modern business corporation. He stated, and I quote, management is doing things right: Leadership is doing the right things. With regard to the above quote, Dunnellon city officials/management have not been doing things right for a long time and city leadership has not been doing the right things for a long time. Greenlight, the Rainbow River Ranch lawsuit, red-light cameras and the purchases of utilities are a few of the examples of poor financial decision-making by the city. Dunnellons problems are complicated, but the solutions could be simple. First off, lets lay the blames for the citys problems on the right doorsteps. The past mayor, some past and current City Council members, the newly-resigned city mis-manager, the city accountants and the city legal representative staff, are the direct cause of Dunnellons financial problems and should be held accountable. Adding insult to injury, current City Council members Dennis Evans, Penny Fleeger and Lynn McAndrew constitute a majority on the Council making it impossible to resolve the citys financial woes as they have continued to vote irresponsibly supporting poor financial policies. The citizens of Dunnellon have spoken and have already solved one huge problem by ousting the former mayor from office. Unfortunately, to City officials conduct definitely unethical Friendships like silver and gold M y grandmother was a key figure in my childhood, and I have plenty of memories of time spent roaming throughout her house, yard and neighborhood as a youngster. Not a day passes I dont miss her, wishing in her later years I visited with her more often, just as I did as a child growing up. She spoiled us, but not with extravagant gifts, but with a love only grandparents are able to provide. My grandmother was raised during tough times. The Kansas Dust Bowl, the Great Depression, two World Wars, the Korean and Vietnam wars, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the space race. She taught my sister, brother and me how to play Bunco, a dice game that was one of her favorites as well as how to play Solitaire. She let us watch shows such as Taxi, All in the Family and MASH. My grandmother, who came from a large Irish family, was a devout Catholic who made sure who her grandchildren were in church once a week. We had no excuse for not being there, since we lived less than half a block away. I remember watching communion, as the priest spoke in Latin as he blessed the wine and bread. It sent a chill down my spine. I can recall the numerous church bazaars we attended, helping my grandmother carry in the numerous desserts and handmade crafts she donated. Everyone watching for her arrival to see what goodies she had brought, most waiting with anticipation for her to set down a freshly made batch of chocolate cremes, a combination of a chocolate cake and a brownie. I can recall how they taste, how they melted in your mouth with every bite. I havent had them since her death in 1995, which also happens to be one of the final times I participated in communion at a Catholic church. Last week, Fred White passed away. My grandmother spent a lot of time with him. I spent a lot of time with Fred White in my youth, too. For those of you wondering, Mr. White was not a suitor of my grandmother. When my grandfather died in 1969, she continued to wear her wedding ring until her death. That, folks, speaks volumes to true love and what marriage meant to couples then, and it still does for some couples today. No, Mr. Fred White was the play-by-play announcer for the Kansas City Royals. He was our Ernie Harwell (Tigers), Jack Buck (Cardinals) and our Vin Scully (Dodgers).

When we got back all furloughs were canceled and we went to Camp Shanks in New York. The camp was nicknamed Last Stop, USA by all the soldiers because it was used solely as a staging area for overseas deployment. From there the men took a ship to South Hampton, England. We went on the Queen Mary with 18,000 troops all in one shot, he said. Outside of Nottingham, we bivouacked in Sherwood Forest. We were training for an invasion at Liverpool. The Army sent Burns to school to learn how to waterproof the military vehicles and then he supervised the procedure. They had to steam clean the trucks and then treat them to make the vehicles impervious in the water to a depth of 4 feet. They had to protect the spark plugs, fan belts, put a snorkel on the carburetor and a long pipe by the cabin of the truck for the exhaust. The waterproofed vehicles went on a Landing Ship Tank (LST) landing craft, according to Burns. I went to pick up a vehicle for my company and on the way back I couldnt see the sky because of all the planes on D-Day, he said. We landed D-Day plus seven days after the initial strike. Landing at Normandy Beach, the LST opened its door for the trucks to disembark three abreast, one on the left, one in the middle and one on the right. They were loaded with 5-gallon metal cans, which were used for water or gasoline and called a jerry can. I was in the middle. My vehicle was loaded with jerry cans and as I started down the ramp, the clutch blew, Burns said. They pulled me out on the beachhead and I had to dig a foxhole. They were bombing on that beach all night long. Later, his regiment camped out in an old apple orchard where they stayed while the war progressed more and more. My company was the first to span the Rhine River, he said. Then we moved up to Belgium and bivouacked in a building. While there one morning, a flying bomb hit one of the buildings and broke some windows. A large piece of glass flew at Burns and made a deep gash from his nose to the lip. The field hospital was 20 miles away, the temperatures were freezing and the only pain killers available were two soldiers to hold him down. They just sewed me up and now you can barely see a scar, Burns said about his wound. They said I was brave. His regiment was the support group for Gen. George Pattons Third Army, providing gasoline, rations and ammunition. It was the winter months when the Germans began making their last stand in Bastogne, France, during the final stage of the Battle of the Bulge. The Germans were riding their vehicles and we had to move out and lost a lot of vehicles and a few men, Burns said. It was their last stand, but the Americans took charge. After the battle was over and he returned home, Burns was honorably discharged Oct. 1, 1945, from the U. S. Army as a technician 5th grade, 364 Engineer, General Service Regiment. After his return, Burns and his friend, Staff Sgt. Maj. Williams, wrote a poem about the war. We sat and wrote line after line, Burns said. He has since passed away and I dont know if any of my mates are still living. Burns has been married for 62 years to his wife, Idella. The couple raised eight children. After working for many years, Burns built his brick house about 15 years ago with help from his sons. He still remains active by running his lawn service and visits his wife, who is confined to a nursing home, daily. I went in and fought for my country, he remarked about his military service. It was scary at times. Thank God, I was able to make it through. new friend at work a couple of months ago. We had been working together for almost a year, but it took a while to become friends. We had to feel each other out and see if the trust could be developed. Arent women a funny bunch? Anyway, we have so much in common. We both have daughters only, we are both on our second, and last, husband, we are both in the midst of menopause, so we share our miseries of hot flashes and we both have parents who are growing older. Suddenly, going to work became so much better. Its more fun. I have somebody to eat lunch with and somebody to chat with. We gripe to each other when we feel overworked and laugh with each other whenever we can. Sometimes we act like teenagers. Alba is of Puerto Rican descent. In my involvement, Ive found the Latino community to be as close-knit as the Italians. Her family life reminds me of my own in a lot of ways. They are loud, friendly and always willing to lend a hand. Plus another similarity, they love to cook. Just thinking of some of the dishes: Paella, RopaViejaand Arroz Con Pollo makes me salivate. And when they cook, its always huge amounts. I think Ive made a new friend for life. Id like to think so anyway. Cherish new friends but keep the old. One is silver, the other gold.

Born in Waynesburg, Pa., Feb. 10, 1944, in coal mining area of Paladia. She said her young life was like the song Tons. Her father worked in the coal mine and her mom in the country store. After graduation she moved to Cleveland, Ohio and worked in the insurance field and the Arthur Murray School of Dance for several years. The Vietnam War influenced her first marriage. She became an actual member of the Military Wives Club and her favorite show on TV was Army Wives. Her words support the Military fear the Govt. In 1969 Shirley and her husband and another couple purchased and operated two resorts on a beautiful mountain lake in the Ozarks just North of Little Rock for several years until both were sold to customers. It was one of the best and biggest challenges of her life and the knowledge and friendships formed during her time there helped guide her through life. Shirley was always ready to try new things and loved to travel, dancing, music, loved the water and outdoors. Her travels included all of the Great Lakes, Caribbean and finally her best find (Rainbow River, Withlacoochee River and Lake Rousseau). After the resorts, her husbands job required them to move about every three to four years. Every new place brought a better job from working in marketing at the Marriott headquarters in Bethesda, Md., to working for an oil company in the famous gold rush on the Series Dallas in Dallas, Texas. Her faith and religion were always a force in her life from attending the Presbyterian Church as a toddler with her grandmother. She attended the Methodist church in her teens and remained a Methodist through the rest of her life. She told friends when she was diagnosed with ocular melanoma in 2010 that God does answer prayers. She knew what the prognosis was and prayed that she would not loose sleep over her condition and asked God to give her strength to deal with it and the rest was in his hands. She never lost sleep over her condition. She said she only lost sleep over silly things. She thanked God every night for her friends and their great support. Shirley (Tweety Bird) loved to travel, fish, dance and hear live music. Her favorite dances were the cha cha cha, salsa, and ballroom. She met several great artists including Charlie Daniels, Ted Nugent, Confederate Railroad, Lonnie Brooks, Biscuit Miller, Shelton Irwin and many others. She said dancing, music, fishing and prayer helped ease the pain. She also said We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. Shirley is survived by her loving companion, Donald B. Cowan, Inglis, Fla. Shirleys life was celebrated at 3 p.m. Friday, May 17, 2013, at The Bluffs at Rainbow 20486 The Granada with Rev. Eddie Fulford officiating.

Williams St., Dunnellon Across from Bank of America High Blood Pressure High Cholesterol Lab EKG Pap Smears OBITUARY Shirley Dodge CHURCH EVENTS Confusion abounds for pastor I have concluded that life, as it stands out in the public arena, is a very confusing thing. As I watched the news and see scandal after scandal unfold and people trying to dance around the facts so that they come out looking good, I am reminded of how that doesnt work for me. I have a new TV show I want to pitch to someone. I am calling it, Dancing with the Idiots. The genius of the show is there is no shortage of contestants. The problem with this show would be who is the idiot to beat all idiots? Since I am not a very good dancer this does not work for me. I think the difference is, I have to answer to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Believe me, she was not born yesterday but I will not give the exact year for obvious reasons. I used to do that but that is when I learned I could not dance, at all. When I was very young and more confused than I am today I thought I could get away with anything. Believe me, I tried. I could write a book, but then there are so many people I would not want to read it that it would not be worth publishing. One problem is associated with this kind of thinking. If you get away with something, who in the world can you brag to about it? If I do something behind my wifes back and actually get away with it, where is the consolation prize? I think the only thing that really illustrates OUT TO PASTOR James Snyder See PASTOR page 7

The wonderful world of angling consists of two kinds of fishermen: those who brag a lot and those who catch a lot and the twain shall never cross rods. I was an avid fisherman and it was a long time before I figured out that in the 23rd Psalm David is not talking about a fishing rod when he says, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Be that as it may, my fishing rod did a great deal of comforting me back in the day. When I would go fishing and come home empty-handed, I could brag about the big one that got away. Of course, every time I told the story the fish got just a little bit bigger. But who is going to correct me on that? Who is to say that it was not really that big? Or, even bigger? When I came home with a bunch of fish, the catch spoke for itself. After all, how in the world can you exaggerate something when it is right before you? Who do you think I am? A politician? If you do think you are getting away with something, somebody will see you and share that information with somebody else who will share that information with somebody else until it has come full circle. Thus begins the dizzy world of confusion. Just this week, for example, I was caught. I hate getting caught. I had come home after a long day at the office and my wife greeted me with, I saw Mrs. Jones who said she saw Mrs. Smith who told her that Mrs. Grant saw you buying an apple fritter at Publix. Is there any truth in it? Any husband knows he will never win any argument when there are four women who testify to the contrary of what he is about to say. The best procedure at this point is to fall on the mercy of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Because, I have discovered the great secret to marital bliss. Simply put, when she is happy, I am happy. The trick is to find out what makes her happy. When I am thus caught with the alleged apple fritter, she is happiest when I confess and say the magical words, Youre right! Arguments have disappeared. The only thing I have to hear now is, Well, dont let it happen again. And the marital bliss is back on track and I have averted a personal train wreck. A long time ago, I understood the difference between being happy and being right. Yes, there is that time when you need to stand your ground regardless of the consequence. My philosophy of life is to simply pick your battles very carefully. Not every battle is worth the scars. After all, when you are caught with the goods in hand, denying it is the epitome of stupidity. Unless I am a politician, I want to stay away from stupidity as much as possible. The thing about denying the scandal you might be in at the time is, it only prolongs the focus on the scandal. Perhaps some politicians could take my advice and confess fully when caught with the goods in hand. Saying, Im sorry, is the first step in putting something behind you. Someone said that confession is good for the soul. It is good for many other things as well. The Bible is sure good on this aspect of confession. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9 KJV). The world can be very confusing if we are not willing to fess up and try straightening things out. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

8 Riverland News, Thursday, May 23, 2013 staff to develop a new budget for the following fiscal year. It is time for a reality check on how the highgrowth strategy of the last three years has led to this fiscal cliff. It is time to have a full discussion in the sunshine of the City Council meetings of cost items and to have disclosure when cost items come up if there is money in the budget to pay for them. Surprise transfers of huge amounts of money between Enterprise Funds in November demonstrated that the budget is out of control. The Dunnellon City Council should disclose the level of the problem including how to deal with the impending debt service requirement and stop making open ended commitments to developers and property owners seeking annexation. It seems obvious that the Dunnellon City Council needs to develop a midyear correction to get its fiscal house in order. Paul Marraffino,Dunnellon Everyone needs to understand big pictureI fully support free speech. I also think its a good idea to request those who speak up to learn a bit more about the subject before doing so. Recent letters in the May 15 Riverland News suggest that while some folks enjoy having rivers in town, they dont get that those wishing to protect those rivers arent merely evil-doers trying to restrict property rights, but are instead encouraging responsible use and preservation of the rivers long-term health and ecotourism potential. They dont understand the true purpose of river protection ordinances, or the role conservationists play in ensuring the health and welfare of the very resources upon which their quality of life and livelihood depend. Recently, a regular contributor also wrote tenderly of life in Dunnellon, urging people to eat more at local restaurants to help support the local economy, while lamenting the inability to stop midway through a tube-run down the Rainbow to grab a juicy burger and ice-cold drink. Comparing Dunnellon to Crystal River, that writer focused more on Crystals plethora of restaurants rather than the river itself. Having seen plenty of both, I can attest to the fact that the Crystal River is no longer crystal; algae thrives in green blankets along its shores, choking out native vegetation and wildlife; slimy, invasive lyngbya blankets once white sand bottoms; and in some places, wildlife and native vegetation is barely present on a river bottom denuded of native growth. But there are, indeed lots of places to grab that burger while sitting next to that struggling river. Ive been to almost every Dunnellon City Council workshop and meeting in over a year and dont recall seeing these folks at them. Ive read and studied almost all available environmental reports relative to local springs and rivers, and seen the damage for myself. Its OK to complain, lament, recommend, and even rail. But its best to do so after having learned the facts. Furthermore, the first thing any professional fundraiser or marketer learns is that getting money out of any group or implementing programs on their behalf without involving credible representatives of that group is likely to end in minimal success at best and failure at worst. Nor does one succeed by seriously offending or rejecting those upon whom success depends. Rainbow Springs residents are touted as likely sources of help for Dunnellons current fiscal woes, a concept with which most RS residents would agree. Most of us moved to Rainbow Springs partly because of proximity to Dunnellon. We still do business there, wanting it to thrive and to become meaningfully involved. To restrict residents from participating in any healing process because they live outside city limits merely reinforces the same problem that created the us versus them divisions in the first place. The key is meaningful, credible and collaborative participation. Dont rule out recruiting the participation of residents with a wealth of knowledge and skills sets, as unwise. (Our Voice) People can be objective, reasonable and sincerely want to contribute when treated with respect. In fact, thats the basis of our entire court system. Dunnellon belongs to all of us. Lets disagree with each other if we must, but do it with full knowledge of issues, respect for each other, and willingness to move forward together. Kathryn Taubert,Rainbow Springs Officials have much to do in little time to do it Regarding recent events at Dunnellon City Council, upcoming current decisions will not be the end of a new beginning; they will be the very crucial beginning of a new era. Past events should not be ignored or excused, but examined, analyzed and explained so a working plan for survival can be achieved. We cannot change the past, but we can assign accountability for past decisions. We can learn from past decisions and correct the terrible decisions made as best we can. Combat medics perform battlefield triage and quickly have to make life-altering decisions about what severely wounded have a chance of survival and expend valuable resources on those who can survive. The Dunnellon City Council is now a combat medic for the city. The next few weeks, and months, will be extremely tough, hard and unpopular as painful decisions must be made with professional, dispassionate judgment using facts in place of feel-good rhetoric. I would like to clarify a point that represents a majority of Rainbow Springs residents: We were not and would not be involved in any aspects of official Dunnellon city business if it were not for the utility purchase price and the ensuing unfair, cavalier, insensitive and unprofessional treatment by city officials. These events proved that Dunnellon Utility money was indeed used to prop up a mismanaged, fiscally irresponsible and wasteful city government with lax oversight. Greenlight alone borrowed $1.4 million with more to come in addition to all the city salaries and budget items buried in the water/sewer line item. If all of the new revenue went to fixing both Dunnellon and Rainbow Springs utilities, then eventually both Dunnellon and Rainbow Springs customers would see lower water rates. I believe some have confused the passionate, concerned, involved and vocal Rainbow River Conservation Inc. members who live in Rainbow Springs as speaking for all of Rainbow Springs. The RCC has members in and out of the city limits from a large area. Are there any other instances where Rainbow Spring residents historically meddled in Dunnellon business? The utility issue and rates are linked to the fiscal stability of Dunnellon. Utility rate money used only for the utility would produce lower rates for all. I cannot appeal to the Public Service Commission about my utility only to the government entity that operates it. Rainbow Springs residents did not mismanage or lobby the city to get into $27-million of debt. Going forward, the city must come to terms with stark reality. In the very immediate future can the city pay its huge bill that is due in November 2013? Can the city afford to keep a law firm and pay the exorbitant fees to that law firm? I question if the lawyer who participated in the sham feasibility study of July 2010 billed the city for her time in that train wreck of a report. Councilman Dennis Evans was right when he stated the responsibility for the fees and work performed did rest with the City Council. The City Council oversight of the budget, City Manager Lisa Algiere and Greenlight from beginning of her tenure to now has been totally inadequate to say the least. To move us to the now, the City Council must follow the lead of Mayor Nathan Whitt and Councilman Erik Collop to dig out of this mess. To not recognize the incompetence and disregard the failure of leadership of Algiere, demonstrates that the viewpoint of the City Council must change to not even totally agree that the current law firm contract should be at least closely reviewed and, perhaps, terminated shows the Council has a long way to go. The triage situation and the serious, threatening nature of the fiscal condition of the city cannot be denied even one day longer. Nero fiddled when Rome burned because he wanted Rome to burn. In Dunnellon we argue about Roberts Rules of Order. Council members have to be in denial in a parallel universe of non-reality not to see the financial cliff Dunnellon faces. The Greenlight mantra of if you build it, they will come only works in Kevin Costner movies. I believe Mayor Whitt and Councilman Collop can handle Dunnellons triage situation, however, the support of a unified Council is needed. We need real world, dispassionate sound business decisions based on current state of affairs. I urge all City Council members to reason, study and decide what course of action can possibly work. In real world triage, as in this case, there are no good, easy choices only draconic necessary choices. Unfortunately, for Dunnellon this triage is necessary because of self-inflicted wounds and the city should own up to that and proceed in good faith. Steve Swett, Dunnellon LE TT ER S continued from page 4 date, the former mayor has assumed no responsibility for his part in causing the problems that continue to plague Dunnellon. The other culprits, still on the council Evans, Fleeger and McAndrew have continued to block reforms by the new mayor that could remedy the citys problems. These three should resign immediately as they continue to be part of the problem and want nothing to do with being part of a solution. Regardless of any past positive contributions by the former mayor and these current Council members, the harms they have brought upon the city far outweigh anything that was accomplished in the plus column. To date, they have assumed no responsibility for their actions and their parts in causing the citys problems. The newly-resigned city mis-manager has left her city position like a rat deserting a sinking ship. She should have been terminated long before she had the chance to resign. To date, she also has failed to assume any responsibility for her action/role in creating the citys current problems. Where were the citys accountants in all this mess? Its their job to advise the city about such poor financial decisions to avoid the pitfalls that now trap the city, not merely report the facts. They should have known better. These people should be terminated immediately. To date, they have assumed no accountability for their poor advice which has added to the citys financial woes. An independent/open audit should be conducted to assess the true financial standing of the city. If any malfeasance is uncovered, those responsible should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The attorneys who still represent the city are perhaps the most culpable. Their poor advice to the city has been detrimental to Dunnellon and has directly contributed to the bad decisions that convinced city officials to pursue numerous poorly conceived financial choices. They should know better. Its their job to know better. Its their job to advise city officials in the citys own best interests. At the very least, a complaint should be filed with the American Bar Association/Florida Bar Association regarding their conduct. To date, this firm has failed to assume any responsibility for their part in contributing to the citys financial problems. To sum up: poor legal advice has convinced city officials to adopt policies and initiate business deals that are sucking the lifes blood out of the city. Shortsighted city management and leadership, based on this legal advice, allowed implementation of these flawed policies and business deals, and none of these people are being held accountable for their poor decisions and actions. Do you know who will be held accountable? John Q. Public, the citizens of Dunnellon and neighboring communities, will foot the bill for the mistakes of those entrusted to look after the publics best interests. Those responsible for all this financial chaos should own up. Only then, possibly, can these dire economic circumstances begin to be resolved. Be real people. Be accountable. Have some sense of ethics and responsibility. I am tired of losing sleep over issues that, unfortunately, I have no control. This should be a lesson to all cities large and small of the negative effects that runaway government can have on our communities. There is something fishy when a city government, or any type of government, allows or offers no financial transparency to its citizenry while at the same time ignoring and dismissing public input. The way the system is supposed to work is, Of the People, By the People and For the People, not for the benefit of the few or the one. All we want is the truth. Some of those currently in control of the government of the city are abusing their power and should be held accountable and responsible. If these dire economic issues are not addressed, there may not be a city of Dunnellon anymore. Be outraged and help save our town. Enough is enough. GUE ST continued from page 4 He brought us the boys in blues into my grandmothers living room, kitchen or front porch on a regular basis in the spring and summers. There was nothing better than camping out on my grandmothers front porch on a muggy summer night with a cold glass of lemonade or Kool-Aid in hand and listening to the Royals efforts to capture a division title. It was one of the few times my grandmother would ever use profanity, though her definition of a profane word and todays definition are pilot opposites, but she had a unique way of calling each player a bum. Of the players she chided for failing to deliver a key hit or home run, she never cursed my idol, George Brett. Not once. He was my hero. I remember Bretts chase for history in 1980, as he sought to become the first player since Ted Williams to hit .400 in a season. He came close. Although the bumper sticker and posters were available everywhere, the poster I sought the most was the door-sized poster you could not get in stores. You had to work for it, and you needed some help with 7-Up bottle tops. Needless to say, we needed 10 tops from the bottles, plus a small fee to pay for the shipping and handling. My grandmother made sure it happened. For the better part of two years, that life-sized poster of George Brett adorned the back of my brothers and my bedroom door for two years. We would spend many a summers day, and night, camped in her big white porch swing, throughout the 1980s, listening to the Royals games. My grandmother praying for a key play, me praying Brett would be the hero. We cherished the memories of the 1985 World Series together. Though as I grew older and spent less time on the front porch, I know my grandmother still kept track of her beloved Royals up until her death, always tuning into Fred White and company throughout the years. As sad as Whites death was, I know my grandmother is sitting on a big white porch swing in heaven, chiding players as she listens to White call the plays. I know shes saving us all a seat, KoolAid in the fridge as well as a couple of cold bottles of 7-Up. O T HER continued from page 4

These recipes from Omaha Steaks will take you on a culinary adventure right in your own backyard. Sweet and spicy Korean, zesty South American and bold Mediterranean flavors make per fectly grilled steak even better. You can find more adventurous recipes at www.OmahaSteaks.com. 10TipsforPerfectGrilling To help you get the perfect steaks every time, follow these simple tips from the experts at Omaha Steaks: 1.Clean and preheat grill on high. 2.Lightly oil everything before putting it on the grill. This helps the searing process and prevents sticking. 3.Season food before grilling. 4.Sear the outside of steaks when grilling. This helps with the flavor and juiciness. 5.Use tongs or a spatula to turn meat on the grill. Using a fork can damage the meat. 6.Cover grill as much as possible during the grilling process. This helps to lock in the grilled flavor and will help prevent flare-ups. 7.Keep a spray bottle with water handy to douse any unexpected flare-ups. 8.Use the 60/40 grilling method. Grill for 60 percent of the time on the first side, then grill 40 percent of the time after turning over the food. This will make sure your food is evenly cooked. 9.Place cooked food on a clean plate. Never place cooked food on the plate you used to transport the raw food to the grill without thoroughly washing it first. 10.Allow foods to rest for 5 minutes between cooking and eating. This will help them retain moisture when you cut into them. To get your grill time just right, download SteakTime, Omaha Steaks free app with an innovative grill timer, at www.itunes.com/appstore.

R IVERLAND SPORTS/ EDUCATION Riverland News, Thursday, May 23, 2013 11 Jackson lands scholarship with West Virginia Wesleyan As her senior season approached, even Tanika Jackson was unsure of where her future in basketball lay. Sure, Jackson had proven she had the necessary skills to exceed at the next level, but she lacked classroom work and test scores as well as potential suitors for her skills. Prior to resigning as the head basketball coach at Dunnellon High, Melissa Mosby approached Ken McAteer with a file about Jackson, urging him to assist her in helping Jackson complete course work and increase her test scores. Mosby knew Jacksons skills on the hardwood would speak volumes for the 5-foot-9 small forward. So McAteer and Mosby, with input from Jackson, went to work developing a course of action, shortly before Mosby stepped down as basketball coach to accept the head coaching position at Trinity Catholic. But that didnt deter Jackson from doing what she needed to do off the court. She went at her class load just like does when driving to the hoop without doubt or fear and with determination. Once basketball season rolled around, Jackson was doing well with her additional classroom load and it didnt set her back on the court. Jackson led the Lady Tigers to one of their best JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsTanika Jackson, left, signs her national letter of intent with West Virginia Wesleyan, an NCAA Division II school located in Buckhannon, W.Va.

With spring workouts well under way, the Tigers get to strut their stuff while allowing the coaches to learn about the upcoming players for the fall season with the annual spring football game. We always get excited to start with a new group, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said. Its fun to see which new guys play well and which returning guys have developed more confidence. The goal of the spring game is to play sound and block and tackle very well and not turn the ball over. The Tigers will lift four days a week during the summer and will attend numerous camps throughout to prepare for the fall season. We should be pretty good on defense and our offense will be young, Beasley said. However, our kids are in much better shape and have had a strong offseason. We will have to continue that throughout the summer. With camps scheduled and games on tap for the fall, the Dunnellon football program is seeking businesses interested in purchasing a field sign.

Now, shell be taking her skills both as a player and leader to the next level, having recently signed a national letter of intent with West Virginia Wesleyan, an NCAA Division II school located in Buckhannon, W.Va. This is not a place, honestly, I thought Id be at when the season started, Jackson said about earning a scholarship to play collegiate basketball. It was certainly a dream, to play college basketball. I just knew with some of the classes I needed to make up that it was going to be hard to achieve. But I had a lot of support and was able to accomplish it. Indeed, she was. And its not the only accomplishments Jackson can boast about during her recently completed senior campaign. Jackson earned a spot in the FABC all-star game in Ocala earlier this season and also earned FABC all-state honors after the season ended. The highlight of her season came in February at Crystal River where Jackson poured in a school-record 43 points against the Lady Pirates. She had 19 in the fourth quarter against Crystal River as the Lady Tigers rallied from an 18-point third quarter deficit for a 59-51 victory. For Jackson, a former cheerleader, who began playing basketball as an eighthgrader, the historic night came as a surprise. Jackson broke Shannon Williams 1986 record of 41 points in a game. It was a really great season, a really fun season, said Jackson, who averaged 18.3 points and 7.0 rebounds for the Lady Tigers. Tony Maldonado, the first-year Dunnellon girls basketball, praised Jacksons efforts this past season not just in terms of statistics, but for her leadership on the floor when it was needed most. I know Ive said this a lot, but Tanika has a career in coaching if she wants it, Maldonado said. She just showed that ability throughout the season. Tanika was able to really guide the younger players when we needed her to, she kept the team composed at critical times. I think thats what you can attribute some of our wins to. I know shes going to do well in school because of what she provides on the floor, she provides leadership and thats what will make her successful not only in basketball, but life. 14 Riverland News, Thursday, May 23, 2013 Add Up TheSAVINGSwith a Name Address City State Zip Phone 10 Words $8.20 Per Week 44 For Each Additional Word Pricing Includes Online All Ads Must Be Prepaid All Credit Card s Accepted 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 10WORDS$8.20+44AWORD(IncludesOnline)=TOTAL For your convenience, mail with payments to Riverland News office at 20441 E.
