Judge to review Rainbow River Ranch settlement deal Six years of legal troubles, wrangling, objections and interventions regarding the proposed development of Rainbow River Ranch could come to a stop Wednesday in the Marion County Courthouse. For it to come to a conclusion, Judge Steven Rogers must approve of a settlement agreement between the city of Dunnellon, the Department of Economic Opportunities (DEO), the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and Jerry Dodd, the property owner of the 250acre property abutting the east shoreline of the Rainbow River. The deal, negotiated by Marsha Segal-George, the former assistant city attorney, was approved in September 2012 by the Dunnellon City Council. Rainbow River Conservation Inc. and the thenDepartment of Community Affairs intervened in an initial agreement by both the city of Dunnellon and Marsha Segal-George Algiere misses cut for role Was candidate for position in Pinellas Co.Former City Manager Lisa Algieres quest to seek her first managerial position since resigning six weeks ago, leaving the city mired in a financial quagmire, did not make it past the preliminary round of interviews. Algiere, the second longest tenured city manager in Dunnellon, was one of seven candidates the Indian Rocks Beach City Commission interviewed June 18 for its vacant position. However, Algiere did not make it past the preliminary interview. The Indian Rocks Beach City Commission selected three finalists who will go through a second interview before a new manager is chosen, said R.B. Johnson, mayor of Indian Rocks Beach in Pinellas County. Johnson said the City Council there was aware of the financial problems including Greenlight Dunnellon Communications. We asked her a number of questions regarding the fiber system and the utility purchases, Johnson said of himself and his fellow colleagues. She related a little about the fiber program, but her answers werent expansive. She did elaborate about the citys utility purchases and was very in-depth about those, but we were hoping shed go a little deeper about the Cameras get reprieve Photos by JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsMotorists make their way through the intersection Tuesday evening at Powell Road and U.S. 41. Its the lone interesection in town in which city officials had red-light cameras installed in both the northbound and southbound lanes. The majority of the Dunnellon City Council on Monday voted to have two new ordinances read and approved to continue the use of the devices at this intersection as well as at U.S. 41 and Brooks Street in the northbound lane and at U.S. 41 and the entrance to Walmart in the southbond lane of U.S. 41. Council: Revenue from red-light cameras needed Cash-strapped, the Dunnellon City Council is moving forward with plans to keep red-light cameras, knowing the much-maligned, oft-criticized devices will provide a stream of revenue officials sorely need as they attempt to correct their current financial tailspin. There was plenty of dialogue concerning keeping the cameras or opting out of the fiveyear contract with Arizona-based American Traffic Solutions (ATS). The contract city officials agreed to in 2010 allows the city to void the contract without penalty after three years. The city passed the three-year mark in February, meaning the city has about 20 months left, but can still opt out at any time. Now the City Council must approve two new ordinances to continue using the devices. The first reading of both ordinances, as mandated by recent legislative changes to red-light cameras, will be at 5:30 p.m. Monday, July 8, a dual City Council workshop/regular meeting. Both ordinances will go through a first reading, before moving onto a second reading as well as public input at 5:30 p.m. Monday, July 22. If the ordinances are approved, city officials can continue to use the devices. However, if the City Council does not adopt both ordinances, the city cannot continue to use the devices. The reason for the new ordinances and their necessity stems from changes state lawmakers passed during their most recently completed legislative session. Legislators put city and county municipalities on notice the new ordinances must be place by July 1. Because the city will not have the new ordinance in place by July 1, redlight camera violations cannot be issued until the ordinances are passed; however, that does not mean motorists will get a green light for running a red light. Once the ordinances are approved by city officials, citations can then be issued with a back date, said Michael Davis, an ATS representative. According to the legislation, JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsThe Rev. Eddie Fulford, right, laughs as Vicki Lynn Braun offers a lighter as he and Carol Meredith attempt to light the mortgage papers on fire during a celebration at First United Methodist Church. Church marks special occasion The Rev. Eddie Fulford stood at the podium Saturday in the Fellowship Hall at First United Methodist Church, microphone in hand and a spread of food within 50 feet. The longtime pastor of First United Methodist Church shared with more than 150 members of the congregation how plans to build a new sanctuary with amenities such as a Fellowship Hall and classroom space came about. The Rev. Fulford had reached out to several senior members of the church, asking them to come to Kentucky Fried Chicken to have lunch while discussing plans for an ambitious $1.5 million undertaking. That was in 2003, and now, 10 years later, several dozen members of the congregation from FUMC joined together to celebrate a monumental moment in the churchs longtime history. They were to burn the church mortgage, 10 years early, all while enjoying fried chicken from KFC as well as multiple side dishes.

Rick Scott, the new law precludes motorists from being cited for a right turn violation if they stop, even if it is beyond the stop line. Drivers will no longer face tickets at intersections with redlight cameras if they come to a complete stop before making a right-hand turn, such as the case would be in the southbound lane on U.S. 41 and the entrance to Walmart.

signed June 12 by Gov. Rick Scott, the new law precludes motorists from being cited for a right turn violation if they stop, even if it is beyond the stop line. Drivers will no longer face tickets at intersections with red-light cameras if they come to a complete stop before making a right-hand turn. But that is just one of many changes lawmakers made to the growing use of red-light cameras by Florida cities and counties that Gov. Scott signed into law (H.B. 7125). Another provision will increase the time motorists have to deal with the initial notice of violation from 30 days to 60 days. After that time, the violation becomes a more formal uniform traffic citation (UTC), carrying higher penalties, including a $264 fine as opposed to the initial $158 fine. However, motorists who contest their violations will no longer have to appear in court. Instead, the city must provide a special magistrate to preside over the hearing. The citys special magistrate, Denise Lyn, currently presides over code violations. She is paid $175 per hour when used. City officials said she would be paid the same rate to hear motorists who contest violations for red-light cameras. In doing so, the city could increase the price of a violation to cover the costs of the special magistrate and hours spent by city staff assisting to set up special hearings for those who wish to contest their violation. With new stipulations going into effect, the city could issue up to 2,000 more tickets through the end of the year and see its net revenue increase to $181,200. But Councilman Dennis Evans and Councilwomen Penny Fleeger and Lynn McAndrew agreed that increasing the time of the yellow light could create some good will. Mayor Nathan Whitt opposed keeping the redlight cameras. This just continues to create ill will with our neighbors and visitors, he said. Were trying to create goodwill, and this does just the opposite. According to the Dunnellon Police Department, since December 2012, more than 110 violations were challenged in court. Overall, officers spend in excess of 968 hours a year reviewing videos and preparing for court hearings. Additionally, officers and staff spend in excess of 920 hours speaking with motorists about violations. These are certainly low-end numbers, said Lt. Sue Webb about the hours spent reviewing videos, court proceedings and speaking with motorists about violations. According to the Fiscal Year 2013 Budget, the city projected revenues of $400,000 from the redlight cameras. When first implemented, the City Council and then-Mayor Fred Ward said use of the items was about safety, not as a revenue-generator. City officials also promised the revenue would be used to pay for more police officers. Though there had been a concern the revenue generated from the devices had been pledged to keep Greenlight afloat, Esch said funds from red-light cameras were never funneled to the fiber-to-the-home program. The interim city manager also guaranteed the City Council and the public, all money earned by use of the devices would go to the police department. Mayor Whitt was disappointed his colleagues chose to keep the devices instead of taking the chance to promote goodwill among the businesses, residents and visitors. He chided those on the Council for favoring the devices for revenue. We dont have much of a choice, Fleeger said. We need the money or were not going to be here much longer, God forbid. I also feel like it helps traffic. Fleeger, McAndrew and Evans all agreed this was both about generating revenue and safety. They three were all on the Council when the red-light cameras were adopted in 2010. However, they all want the timing of the amber, or yellow, lights increased at each intersection where they are used. That, Mayor Whitt said, would skew the proposed revenue potential. Youre going to skew it by changing the timing of the yellow light, he added. Do we really want to do this? This is a lot of ill will youre stirring up again. County hosts weekly farmers market Marion County is bringing back its weekly Friday farmers market and is looking for additional vendors.

Wed read a lot of news reports about the citys current financial struggles, he explained. We were really hoping to get more of her insight about the problems, whether they were hers or not, we just couldnt get what we had hoped to hear about. Johnson said he and other members of the City Council noted Algiere was quite introverted. While the city manager doesnt get out and do much, he explained, its still a very sociable community. People here really know each other; theyre out and about a lot at different events. If people pick up on someones quirks right away, theyll point those out. Given, were a fairly sociable community we felt that would be a tough fit for her. Im sure shes very comfortable behind the scenes and thats typically where a city manager does most of their work, but we believe you have to have people who can engage the public. Though she resigned, Algiere remains employed until July 13 when her two-month notice, which was required by language in her contract, ends. When she offered her resignation, she did so under the guise of serving as a consultant and told Eddie Esch, the current interim city manager, she would call to check in and answer any questions he might have or offer any input he might need. She hasnt called once, Esch said, noting Algiere told him she applied for the position several months ago and before she resigned as city manager in Dunnellon. Because she resigned, Algiere was entitled to two months severance pay as well as accrued time and benefits. All told, for serving as a consultant, Algiere will earn approximately $12,377.16, plus $800 for car allowance. Overall, her base salary was $74,263 with an auto allowance of $400 per month. Had Algiere been fired for any reason, the City Council would have had to pay her five months as well as accrued time. Algieres tenure as city manager in Dunnellon was rocky at best, but her legacy here will likely be remembered as a failure, most notably for the citys current financial crisis. In November 2010, the city struck a deal with Regions Bank in Orlando, securing $7.3 million in financing to launch Greenlight Dunnellon Communications. In the contract with the bank, officials pledged the citys shared taxes as collateral for securing the money to build the lofty fiber to the home program. The citys shared taxes are approximately $1.5 million. Overall, the citys budget for Fiscal Year 2013 is $3.7 million. However, Greenlight Communications struggled to get off the ground in the first year, beset by problems securing much-needed fiber for the ambitious undertaking. Because Greenlight failed to launch in 2011, officials were forced to seek a restructured deal with Regions Bank in November 2011, but details of that agreement were never revealed. Greenlight finally launched by July 2012, but it wasnt a complete system launch and six months later, the citys largest targeted customer base, Rainbow Springs residents, launched a boycott of the citys utility program, featuring cable television, Internet and phone. The boycott was in response to the citys purchase of the Rainbow Springs, Juliette Falls and Rio Vista water/sewer utility systems. At the time, the city implemented a 25 percent surcharge after borrowing more than $6 million to complete the purchases of Rainbow Springs and Juliette Falls systems. No timetable has been announced for finding a replacement, Mayor Nathan Whitt hinted at using the Range Riders program to assist the city in its search. The program does not charge to help find replacements for city managers. The Range Riders were used by the Indian Rocks Beach City Commission to help in its search for finding a replacement for Chuck Coward, who is retiring. We wish Dunnellon the best of luck in its current situation, Johnson said. We hope they are able to overcome what they are dealing with.

Only one class can be missed in the series and the CPR and last class are mandatory. The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the Sheriffs Office. The purpose of CERT is to train and certify volunteers to be first responders in their communities in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane or tornado. The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism. Studies of behavior following a disaster have shown that volunteers perform more effectively if they have had prior training and planning in how to function as a team. There is no cost for the program. For information or an application, call Bob Conn, trainer, at 352-812-0853. All applications must be in by Aug. 17.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, June 27, 2013 RIVER 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 Letters tend to neglect providing solutionsAs a longtime subscriber and reader of the Riverland News, my curiosity is piqued by the many published letters from a myriad of experts and gurus concerning the serious problems facing the city of Dunnellon. Regrettably, most are eager to point out the flaws, but tend to neglect providing time-tested successful solutions for the difficulties. In response to the urging of numerous folks, may I respectfully offer a sequence of actions to bring Dunnellon back to pragmatic realism? Based upon a lifetime career of management in private industry and local governments, I am certain that the following outline of necessary steps to be taken can be satisfactorily completed if earnestly desired and vigorously pursued. Furlough/dismiss city manager, and the assigned city attorney already accomplished by the mayor and Council. Through appropriate channels, invite bids from the private sector to purchase the water departments acquired beyond the city limits; set reasonable starting bid amounts. Through appropriate channels, invite bids from the private sector to purchase the fiber optics network, Greenlight Dunnellon Communications, and set reasonable starting bid amounts. Upon acceptable completion of the above items, then, and only then, begin the process of calling the bonds, using the proceeds from the property sales above, to retire the debt and burdensome interest payments. With best regards to the council members and the dedicated employees, all of whom are genuinely concerned about the citys future. Howard Bill Bailey,former city manager, DunnellonSettlement deal will be costly for citizensNow that City Manager Lisa Algiere has terminated her employment with Dunnellon, the citizens are left trying to deal with the $27 million debt she left behind. On top of this are contracts and agreements she and Marsha Segal-George, former assistant city attorney, derived that Time for America to sow fresh future In June, we celebrate National Family Month, which is a great time to reflect on your family and how to make it stronger. As the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reminds us, strong families share many valuable qualities: trust, commitment, communication, growth, affection, fun, and love. Strong families are more likely to grow through a crisis, allowing the difficult experience to bring them even closer together. In the unfortunate event of a family members death, we want you to know that Social Security is here to help. In addition to the emotional difficulty family members experience, there is often a financial burden as well, especially if the familys main wage earner dies. In such cases, Social Security survivors benefits will help. Did you know that nearly every child in America could get Social Security survivors benefits if a working parent dies? And Social Security pays more benefits to children than any other federal program. Although many people think Social Security is just a retirement program, you should know that Social Security also provides survivors insurance benefits for workers and their families. If youre like most people, the value of the survivors insurance you have under Social Security is probably more than the value of any individual life insurance you may own. And you dont even need to sign up for a separate policy; by working and paying Social Security tax, you are most likely already insured without even knowing it. Family members who may be able to receive survivors benefits based on your work record include a widow or widower, unmarried children up to age 19 and still in high school, and under certain circumstances, stepchildren, grandchildren, stepgrandchildren, adopted children and dependent parents. If youd like to learn more about survivors benefits, and how to apply, read, Survivors Benefits, available at www. socialsecurity.gov/pubs. You can find additional useful information, such as our survivors planner and information about how to apply for survivors benefits, at www.social security.gov/pgm/survivors.htm. Question: Can I receive Social Security benefits and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits at the same time?

THE OTHER GUY LETTERS SOCIAL SECURITY THE JERSEY GIRL So all the months spent griping about my weight, about not feeling good and feeling bloated are finally making sense. According to my new doctor, I have intolerance to gluten. If youre not sure what gluten is, and believe me I wasnt until several weeks ago, its a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and related grains. Actually anything with wheat or wheat flour is considered gluten. When I first heard the words gluten-free, I thought it was the latest gimmick, just like the Atkins fad that went around years ago. In fact, I used to think Elizabeth Hassleback was being overly dramatic when she told about her woes of wheat on national television. However, after doing my research, Ive discovered this is a very real problem. I knew something was wrong; not only was I gaining weight, but nothing I did made a difference. Most nights after eating supper, I would put my pajamas on since it was the only thing that I felt comfortable in. It turns out I had inflammation in my small intestine. Every morning for breakfast, I would have a bowl of oatmeal followed by low-fat pretzels for a midmorning snack. It turns out both of these are loaded with gluten and I was making myself feel bad without even knowing it. After feeling tired, weak and fat for almost a year, it was time to find out what was going on inside my body. I found this doctor strictly by accident. Hes actually a chiropractor and somebody I normally would not have gone to. He was hosting a seminar I attended about being healthy one day during my lunch hour. Once he began to speak about nutrition and what should be going into our bodies, I quickly wrapped up my ham and cheese sandwich with extra mayo and my big bag of greasy potato chips. He discussed all the normal stuff we already know: drink plenty of water, get an adequate amount of sleep and so forth. Then he asked: who has normal headaches? Of course, most of the class raised their hands to which he replied theres no such thing as a normal headache. Having a headache is not normal, nor should you have to live with them. I, of course, wanted to hear more. Ive lived with headaches for years. I made an appointment for the very next week. Although he doesnt accept insurance and his prices arent cheap, he was willing to work with me. I do understand though why so many people live with pain. On the first visit, I filled out a very lengthy 8-page questionnaire, and after a few tests he floored me with my gluten intolerance diagnosis. That night I started doing my research. First, I had to find out what gluten is, not to mention why it was bad for me. I read some interesting stuff and found some really good Gluten for punishment Strong families survive He who controls the food, controls the world. Author unknownMomma always told me to eat my vegetables, but the problem is Ive never liked vegetables much. Todays offerings arent much better, not if you have been paying attention to the worldwide crisis regarding Monsanto. For those of you who are in the dark about Monsanto, it is the nations largest producer of genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. Corn and wheat are, by far, the largest produced GMO crops. The problem here folks is the harvest is tainted, and for far too long most of us, including myself have failed to pay closer attention to what we are ingesting. Not only is Monsanto polluting our bodies, they are destroying our environment. Their products are laced with chemicals, which seep into the ground and pollute our waterways. Perhaps if those folks who label themselves as environmentalists were serious about the environment, theyd be screaming and hollering at the top of their lungs for our national lawmakers to put a halt to this travesty. America has one of the worlds best networks of doctors, but poor health statistics. While European countries might not have the cutting-edge technologies the U.S. does, their health rates, obesity figures and other measurable statistics are much stronger than ours. Wonder why? Its simple. Most European countries have banned the use of Monsanto products as well as other GMO-based seeds. Those countries are doing it the old-fashioned ways, but thats not to say American farmers arent. The problem is, to be a certified organic farm, you have to pay top dollar for that distinguishing trait. Farmers who use Monsantos GMO seeds are given government subsidies. Sure its wrong. Its downright disheartening. Perhaps its the reason more folks have done what our parents, grandparents and family members from generations past did planted a garden. Monsanto gets away with it simply because it can. The company has deep pockets it spent tens of millions of dollars in California to sway voters from approving an amendment to require produce and other products to have a GMO-based label. National lawmakers recently allowed a bill written by Monsanto lawyers and slipped into a bill by a U.S. representative from Missouri who used to work for Monsanto. And to think, we thought the shenanigans at Dunnellon City Hall the past few years were bad; our national lawmakers continue passing See LETTERS page 6 See SOCIAL page 5 Audrey Beem Adon Williams Jeff Bryan Editor See OTHER page 5 See JERSEY page 5

The volunteers of the Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop are constantly searching for worthy local causes where their profits can make a difference. They like to see the fruits of their labor from the little shop on the corner of West Pennsylvania Avenue and Chestnut Street stay within the community, and articles in the Riverland News often prove to be a great source for finding destinations for their donations. One of the volunteers brought in a story printed in the May 30 edition entitled Dunnellon students tour organic farm, to President Joann McCullough. After contacting teaching farm owner, Kevin Gunter, McCullough took the article and additional information to the thrift shop women for their consideration. The ladies voted unanimously to help fund the project with a $500 donation hoping to encourage the garden doctor to continue to educate youngsters and oldsters alike in toxic-free food producing, water conservation, recycling everyday items, and ways to protect the environment. On June 22, two volunteers from the Dunnellon Thrift Shop presented the Garden Doctor Teaching Farm with a $500 check and were treated to a tour as well as an outline of future plans, which include raised bed plantings and more extensive irrigation. Gunter, a Dunnellon High graduate, retired military man, and current teacher of the Dunnellon High Junior Air Force ROTC, was taken by surprise at the donation. A smiling Gunter indicated these funds are a rare, unexpected gift and he was grateful for the support and opportunity to expand his experiments, new growing techniques and the opportunity to share the knowledge he gains. During the tour, Gunter indicated he advocates using and recycling common household items for containers and pointed to a fence lined with hanging soft drink bottles filled with soil and growing plants. He mentioned a group of students will come to the farm for a hands-on experience. The Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop wants to thank the community for their donations, which are sold in their thrift shop and all our wonderful customers who shop with us, in turn allowing us to give our profits to worthwhile projects such as the teaching farm. The thrift shop continues to welcome new volunteers and is looking forward to celebrating 40 years of donating to the community in 2014. benefit is low enough for you to qualify for SSI. Whether you can get SSI depends on your income and resources (the things you own). If you have low income and few resources, you may be able to supplement your Social Security benefit with an SSI payment. You can find out more about SSI by going to www.social security.gov and selecting the SSI tab at the top of the page. Question: What are the limits on what I can own to be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI)? Can I have money in the bank, a car, and a furnished house? Answer: We count real estate, bank accounts, cash, stocks, and bonds toward the resource limits on what you can own. You may be able to get SSI if your resources are worth no more than $2,000. A couple may be able to get SSI if they have resources worth no more than $3,000. Keep in mind that we usually dont count the house you live in, personal items such as furniture and clothing, or the car you drive. If you own valuable property you are trying to sell, you may be able to get SSI while trying to sell it. You can find out more about SSI by going to www.socialsecurity.gov and selecting the SSI tab at the top of the page.Adon Williams is the Social Security Manager in Ocala. recipes. Next, I planned a trip to the grocery store where I was pleasantly surprised by the number of items available. So now its been almost two months and I feel great. The plan definitely agrees with me and Im finding it easy to follow. What has failed me in the past were bland foods I was forced to eat think rice cakes and feeling hungry all the time and this involves neither. You can actually eat most of the same foods youre eating now except for anything that has wheat in it. I eat eggs and steak and vegetables and I always feel full but never stuffed. Not only that, but most restaurants have a gluten-free menu. I even made my family a gluten-free baked ziti dinner to which everybody swore they could not tell the difference. I dont know if that was true, but I do know they fought over the leftovers. I have no doubt that my biggest obstacles will be pizza and fried chicken, which are both pretty bad for me anyway. I did buy a glutenfree pizza mix, but didnt care for the taste or the texture. Im told there are brands that are really good so Ill try again. Since then, Ive spoken with so many people who have cut wheat out of their diet. Ive been told amazing stories about people who had migraines and joint pain and are now pain free. I would wake up in the middle of the night with my hands tingling, like they fell asleep but since going off the gluten I have not had this happen. Im not saying this is for everybody, but I do know I feel so much better. Ive lost 5 pounds, but I feel so much lighter. I also have more energy and want to stay active. So heres to glutenfree, may we have a long and healthy life together. Riverland News, Thursday, June 27, 2013 5 Stephen Goldsmith BC-HIS 40+ Years Experience We will beat all advertised prices!

Those concerned about tubers and other recreational users destroying our beloved Rainbow River and Rainbow Springs desperately need to come to grips with this realization: those folks who use the river and headsprings for recreational purposes are the same people who could be its saving grace.

may obligate the city for many millions of dollars more. One of these is the lawsuit settlement agreement made with the Rainbow River Ranch (RRR) developer. Not only is this settlement agreement filled with many unwarranted land-use entitlements and threats to the health of the Rainbow River and its environment, but it contains commitments to the developer that the city cannot and should not afford. A partial list of these is included below: Provision of water and sewer infrastructure to the development at taxpayers expense, requiring not only water and sewer piping, but also a new, large capacity well and an expansion of sewage treatment facilities. The RRR developer has been given the option of reserving any and all present and future city water and sewage treatment capacity at todays fees. This could prevent meeting other development needs in the city. Phase-in of development at developers discretion. This means no ad valorem tax increase on the property until phases are initiated. Substantial increases in police and fire protection and street maintenance. A 6,000to 8,000square-foot public services building to accommodate these increased services. Construction of this facility must begin within 12 months of any phase of the development. Changes in the development plan can be made at the developers discretion with only city manager approval. This means no review by the planning commission, the city council, the public or the minimum review required by state regulatory agencies. No public input and no transparency. The city must go to the trouble and expense of amending its comprehensive plan and development code to accommodate this particular development. If the city fails to fulfill its obligations under this settlement agreement the developer can reinstitute legal action against the city, but the city is bound by this agreement not to raise any defenses. For more detail about this settlement agreement, see item 29 under litigation at www. RainbowRiver Conservation.com. Clearly, this is an egregious document and, therefore, Rainbow River Conservation chose to intervene in the settlement agreement. A case management hearing is scheduled for 10:45 a.m. Wednesday, July 3, before Judge Rogers at the courthouse in Ocala. If you want to be supportive of RRCs intervention, please attend the hearing. Judge Rogers courtroom is on the fifth floor at the east end of the courthouse. Burt Eno, Ph.D., president of RRC DunnellonUnhappy businesses should participateIt was pointed out in Jeff Bryans column that you and many were unhappy with the past councils actions or inactions. The comment was then made that instead the business owners have sat and waited for the city officials to make the right decisions. I would suggest that some of our locally owned businesses do actively take part in trying to make this city a good place to live and do business. Among those many business people who are working to improve things is our current mayor, both a citizen and business owner. Hopefully, some of those who sat and waited will become active in helping the city, which would be in their own interest. We all know that as the city goes, so will the businesses go. Yes, all people who own commercial property do pay taxes on their business property. I live in the city and pay the same tax rate that is paid by the businesses in the city. While the businesses pay independently for trash pick up, I pay a monthly fee whether I need the service or not. I also pay the county for the trash collection used by my business. I am required to provide parking for my customers, keep the landscaping to county standards, meet local, county, state and federal regulations. These things are simply included in the cost of doing business. Datesman Park, from my point of view, would have been more attractive as a park; however, it was converted to a parking lot to help the nearby businesses who were in need of parking. The area that was previously more residential has changed to a more commercial character. Just one small example of the citys willingness to help those mostly small businesses in the area survive. The CRA district still is here and the funds I believe are still to be dedicated to the district. The first obligation of those funds is to insure infrastructure. After that beautification and rehabilitation fall in line to help both individual homes and or businesses that meet the requirements. None of us should expect special treatment just because we are business people. The city does not exist to meet the demands of potential future businesses. The city, however, is working on meeting the needs of businesses and city residents as well as residents in nearby communities, whose support is needed by all of us. A town of less than 2,000 citizens is not likely to be self-supporting, nor able to support many businesses. Let us try to be helpful to the current council. Unfortunately, some of those who currently serve, received and believed incredibly bad information and advice, failed to ask the right questions. The time has come for requiring results. It is time for actual financial information delivered in understandable factual terms. The attitude that we can not be in control seems to have passed. Many, thanks to our council, especially to the new members who came into a disastrous situation with their eyes open and ready to work at healing the city. The state and county have been working on the trails systems and an important link to Dunnellon should be complete, or nearly so, in 2014. Want to improve the look of County Road 484? Some businesses have put out planters with flowers simple easy to care for, and if done by all, will make a difference. The sign by the river we must keep it up, give it ever changing happy messages. Show the folks driving through where to go, what there is to do in town. All the businesses stand to profit from getting out the information and all can contribute in maintaining it. Get rid of the plastic signs stuck in the medians they are ugly and not legal anyway and code enforcement has other things to do. While there will always be things on which we dont all agree on, we can, as a both businesses and citizens, work for the betterment of all.

I remember that meeting, and how Jack Bergstrom pointed out everyone can play a part, everyone can contribute a little. We had one little old lady contribute 2 cents, and that was the start of it. The Rev. Fulford said the congregation made it a goal to pay off the $1.5 million mortgage as soon as possible. When the new sanctuary was built, the late Chaplin Dinkins conveyed to the Rev. Fulford, if the church took the full 20 years to pay off the mortgage, it would pay an additional $1 million in interest payments. Saturdays celebration wasnt lost on those who attend the church, the Rev. Fulford said. We knew then, it was important to attempt to pay the mortgage off as quickly as possible, the Rev. Fulford said, noting the church has three Sunday morning worship services. And everyone has certainly played their part in that. Theyve contributed what they could toward that goal. We havent had major financial gifts, but weve had people whove done their part in helping us achieve our goal. The celebration also allowed the Rev. Fulford and members of the Church Building Committee to unveil plans for an expansion at the sprawling 30-acre property along West State Road 40, which is nestled on the highest spot in western Marion County. And for those who thought building a new 500-plus seat sanctuary 10 years ago was a bold initiative, the church is tentatively planning a bolder move as the congregation eyes making a larger impact in the Dunnellon community. While not set in stone, as the Ten Commandments were, the church is looking into building a full-fledged elementary school to host prekindergarten through fifth-grade students; a Health and Wellness Center; and an assistedliving facility. Plans, tentatively, call for a small campground facility to allow for those passing through the area to stay as well as for use by the church-sponsored Cub Scout Pack. Theyre just visions we have, he explained. But they are visions to serve not only our church members, but the community. We know its important for us to minister to everyone. Weve been so blessed; we need to continue sharing those blessings to others. If plans are approved to expand the campus, the Rev. Fulford said additions would not likely start to occur for two years. In the meantime, he explained church members will continue to tithe extra money if possible, which will be put toward maintaining current facilities as well as go toward a building fund for future projects. We know there is a lot that would go into this, he said. So right now, were in an investigative mode, but were going to do what God calls us to do. Its been absolutely amazing what weve been able to accomplish already, but were eager to see where God leads us.

I am a realist in a modified definition of that word and I usually take things as they come. My past week, however, was an open commentary on Murphys Law.

Have you ever noticed when you are 15 minutes late in the morning the day ends up being 90 minutes late? Do not ask me how that happens. Ask Murphy. In the mail, I got a notice from the bank that I was overdrawn and they were charging me an insufficient fund fee. Well, I was furious. After all, I know how to add and subtract and I know how to take care of my bank account. I was about ready to call them and give them a piece of my mind when I noticed, how it happened I will never know, I forgot to include two checks I had written last week. I hate when that happens. My whole checkbook is now screwed up. I think it might be easier for me just to close my account and start all over again. It was Tuesday but I had to go across town and endure all that traffic. It is not my favorite place to drive, I will tell you right now. Just as I turned onto a street, my engine sputtered a little bit. Then, much to my chagrin, the engine stopped completely. I hate when that happens. I turned the key several times and then, I do not know why I did it, but I glanced at the gas gauge and the arrow was pointing way beyond the E. My gas tank was about as empty as my bank account. It is bad to run8 Riverland News, Thursday, June 27, 2013 SAR002554 Calvary Baptist Temple 21841 S.W.

out of gas, but the worst thing for me about running out of gas is calling the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and asking her for help. I would walk 100 miles not to tell her I am out of gas. She always comes and bails me out. However, for the next six months I am reminded and reminded and reminded to put gas in my tank. Thursday also had its issues. My wife wanted me to go to the store and pick up something and for some reason, I cannot remember it now, I used her car. Maybe it was because I did not want to run out of gas! I got to the store, paid for my purchase, came out and tried finding my truck. I walked up and down and my truck was nowhere in sight. The only thing I could think of at the time was that somebody had stolen my truck. I thought about calling the police, and then I thought better and decided I would call my wife first. You know what it is like when your wife hears something secondhand. And so I called her. I cant find my truck, I said trying to keep my voice as calm as possible not to get her upset, I think somebody stole it. Should I call the police? Silence on the phone. Then I heard her say in a very calm voice, Whoever stole your truck parked it in our driveway. I then remembered I was driving her car. I tried to chuckle within but I knew that this incident would hang in our house for months to come and I have Mr. Murphy to thank for that. It was such a horrific week and I was so deep in trouble with my Better Half, I decided to take her out Friday night for a nice meal on the town. I took her to her favorite restaurant and we ordered our supper, then sat back and kind of sighed the week away. Maybe all that could go wrong has gone wrong and the week was about to turn around. We chatted; I tried to skew the conversation away from running out of gas and misplacing my truck. Then the waitress came with our meal. I was ready to settle down, enjoy a scrumptious meal and end the week on a happy note. The waitress set my wifes plate in front of her and she smiled. Then the waitress set my plate in front of me and I freaked out. For some reason the waitress got my order mixed up with somebody elses order and right in the middle of my plate was a pile of broccoli. The only hope I have is that it cannot get any worse than this. I think David, the psalmist, understood this when he wrote, ... weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning (Psalm 30:5 KJV). As bad as it gets, as a Christian I have some great things to look forward to in Jesus Christ.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

OCALA For more than 60 years, AT&T and the AT&T Foundation have been strong supporters of the United Way both at the national and local levels. Today, AT&T continues this legacy of support through a contribution of $15,000 to the United Way of Marion County. In 2013 alone, AT&T gave $5.49 million to 562 local United Ways across the country. The United Way of Marion County will use the contribution to support programs that create long lasting change in the local community. The United Way is dedicated to improving lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good, as is evident from the work of the United Way of Marion County. For example, in the past year, the organization funded 23 different programs at 19 local agencies in the areas of education, income and health. United Way volunteers monitor and invest donations in the best agencies in Marion County that address our goals from literacy to home delivered meals for seniors, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. The generous support from AT&T allows us to accomplish our work. In addition to this contribution, each year AT&T employees take part in an employee giving campaign that provides millions of dollars to the United Way. In 2012, AT&T employees, including employee members of the Communication Workers of America, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the Telecommunications International Union, pledged $33.7 million through this campaign. Locally, AT&T employees contributed more than $31,000, and are currently one of the Top 25 contributors to the United Way of Marion County. Dodd. All parties, including the DEP, were ordered by now retired Judge Frances King to come together to come up with an accord each party could agree upon. Those parties, including the DEO, the city, RRC and DEP met in the fall of 2012 to come to an agreement. The city, Dodd and the state agencies signed off on a new agreement; however, RRC did not approve of the latest agreement and has continued to pursue its status as interveners in the pact, citing both environmental and financial concerns for the river and the city of Dunnellon. Burt Eno, Ph.D., and president of RRC, alleged in September 2012, the current agreement was done behind closed doors without presence of the RRC. They conspired behind closed doors, he said. We were taken advantage of. Eno wrote city residents dont fully understand the financial ramifications theyll be subjected to if the deal is approved by the courts. Not only is this settlement agreement filled with many unwarranted land-use entitlements and threats to the health of the Rainbow River and its environment, Eno wrote in a Letter to the Editor on Page 4 of todays Riverland News, but it contains commitments to the developer that the city cannot and should not afford. According to the deal, the agreement does not become final until: (A) the plat is recorded, and (B) the settlement agreement is approved by the Circuit Court as provided in 70.001, F.S., and the time to appeal has run, or, if appealed, when a decision is rendered which affirms the legality of the agreement. When the agreement becomes final, the property owners and the city will file voluntary dismissals of all pending claims against each other. The deal, if approved by a judge, stated the site design properly reflects the importance of the protection of the critical environmental and natural habitat areas of the property. Some of these environmentally friendly design features include large, contiguous greenway trails, neighborhoods traversable by foot, a variety of housing choices and a protective buffer along the Rainbow River. According to the deal, the property owners will place a protective buffer along the riverfront of the Rainbow River. As used in this agreement, the term protective buffer means the area along the riverfront measured landward 100 feet from the ordinary high-water line or to the landward extent of the existing railroad berm, whichever distance is greater. Plat approval will require the protective buffer setback as noted above and a 25-foot setback from a jurisdictional wetland delineation line for the primary residential structure on each waterfront residential lot. All residential structures on non-riverfront lots will also be set back 25 feet from any jurisdictional wetland delineation lines. Within the protective buffer, the only structures permitted shall be docks, walkways, footpaths and gazebo-type structures. No residential structures may be located within the protective buffer and no gazebo may be converted to a residential structure. The agreement states the development of this project shall be subject to the requirement that all structures shall be connected to a central sewer system and an approved public or private central water system as to be outlined in a future Utility Services Agreement. The agreement also stipulates the property owner shall either donate a site, which would accommodate a 6,000to 8,000-square-foot public facility, or pay the city $50,000 for the acquisition or construction of a facility within 12 months of the start of construction on any phase of the project. According to the agreement, the property owner does not waive any rights or claims under the Bert Harris Act for government actions taken by the city after the date of this settlement agreement, if the city denies or files any action agreed upon in the pact. In the agreement, the DEO, through its Division of Community Development, has reviewed this agreement and negotiated the conditions of this agreement in consultation with the DEP in order to assure the agreement protects the public interests, advanced by F.S. 163. That, Eno wrote, is egregious. If the city fails to fulfill its obligations under this settlement agreement the developer can reinstitute legal action against the city, he wrote. But the city is bound by this agreement not to raise any defenses.
