Thursday, January 23, 2014 Vol 32 No. 12 75 cents WHATS HAPPENING County schedules meeting about riverAfter hearing a plea in November from a Dunnellon resident who lives on the Rainbow River, Marion County Parks & Rec will host the Rainbow River Stakeholder meeting from 10 to 11 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 30, at the Dunnellon Public Library at 20351 Robinson Road. At its Nov. 5 meeting, Sherry Evans spoke about the need for law enforcement presence on the river, citing problems with trespassing into private property along the river. Evans said there are groups of people, sometimes 20, sometimes 50 at a time, that enter peoples property. The wife of Vice Mayor Dennis Evans added when she addresses the privacy issue with the intruders, Ive been cursed at, Ive been laughed at. She said a neighbor had been threatened with the burning of her house, another had a threat to kill a dog. Were all afraid. People are so disrespectful. She said she lives a distance away from launch points, and by the time they get there theyre intoxicated. Evans said it has turned into spring break at Daytona Beach. She spoke about people taking the law into their own hands. Weve reached that frustration level. She complimented the Dunnellon police for their efforts, but added that when we call the sheriff, it takes 45 minutes for them to get there, and when they do, the people are on the river and the deputy says theres nothing he can do. Sometimes when we call at night, they never show up. She said that if the county doesnt have enough money, then lets charge 2 or 3 dollars extra to get a sheriff in the river. For information, call Gina Peebles at 352-671-8555. Florida Cable is the rightful owner of the citys telecommunications system after signing closing papers Dec. 23 when City Attorney Virginia Cassidy handed over the title and keys to the building and equipment. Thats the ruling Cassidy provided the Dunnellon City Council at its Jan. 16 special meeting as officials scrambled to find a resolution with Florida Cable, which didnt pay the $1.3 million Dec. 23 when the two entities closed on the deal. In the end, while expressing an urgency to close the books on the three-year Greenlight saga, the City Council voted to extend Florida Cables deadline to fund the sale to Jan. 31. The extension comes with multiple stipulations, mainly regarding fines and Virginia Cassidy Richard Suarez Photos by JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsAn employee with Pinsly Railroad Company observes the cleanup process Friday at the site of a train derailment on the Florida Northern Railroad line. The process took 40 hours to complete. Eleven cars were damaged in the early morning incident. An investigation into how the accident occurred will be done in-house with a completed report being turned over to the Florida Department of Transportation and the Federal Railroad Administration. Coal train bound for Crystal River jumps tracks Friday Traffic came to a halt Friday along the Florida Northern Railroad, which runs along U.S. 41, as approximately 11 coal cars bound for Duke Energys Crystal River coal plant overturned in the early morning hours. There were no injuries and no fire ensued, officials said. The cause of the accident is still under investigation, said Matt Schwerin, assistant general manger of Operations, Safety and Training with Florida Central, Midland and Northern Railroad. An investigation into how the incident occurred will be done in-house with a completed report being turned over to the Florida Department of Transportation and the Federal Railroad Administration. The main track was offline for 40 hours after the wreck, as crews had to remove the wreckage and repair the damaged track before it was operational. The Florida Northern Railroad is run by the Pinsly Railroad Company. According to the news release from Marion County Fire Rescue, officials responded to the derailment at 4:42 a.m. along the Marion-Levy County line in Dunnellon. Initially, Levy County dispatch notified the Marion County Public Safety Communications Department of the incident and MCFR and Marion County Sheriffs Office units responded.

Community rallies, honors slain civil rights activist Its been slightly more than 50 years since Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous, I Have a Dream speech. Its a little bit more than four years from the 50th anniversary of his tragic assassination in April 1968. Still, the memories, the legacy and the movement which Dr. King fought so hard for during the Civil Rights era in the late 1950s and throughout much of the 1960s continue today. Not because many of the challenges Dr. King and the African-American community remain as prominent today. Instead, its about educating the generations who dont know how hard the fight was, said the Rev. Eric Cummings of Union Missionary Baptist Church. The younger generation might understand the challenges, how hard the struggle was, because they dont have to endure that, he said as city officials, local civic leaders and area churches gathered Monday at Ernie Mills Park after Dunnellons Company has until Jan. 31 to pay for deal or officials will file lawsuit JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See CABLE page 11 Motion requests judge eliminate surcharge Residents await judges rulingJudge Steven Rogers heard arguments regarding the citys use of Florida Statute 180 to implement a 25 percent surcharge on Rainbow Springs utility customers after the citys purchase of its previously, privately owned and operated utility system. Ralf Brookes, who represents Louis Benzas class-action lawsuit against the city regarding its interpretation of Florida Statute 180, asked Judge Rogers to require officials to immediately drop the surcharge. But as seems common with Judge Rogers, he did not immediately render a decision, nor did he give either party a timeline as to when he would reach a decision. In his argument, Brookes maintained the city is not fully interpreting the statute correctly. Its unconstitutional, it lacks any rational basis, he told Judge Rogers regarding the citys implementation of the surcharge. The burden shifts to the defendants to see what (reason) they have to implement the surcharge. Its a material fact. City Attorney Virginia Cassidy objected, telling the judge the basis of Brookes argument was a fact issue. She explained she filled a brief Sunday to which Brookes submitted his reply Monday. The law does not allow for him to reply via brief, she added, noting Brookes reply was nothing more than an amendment for motion, which did not meet the 20-day requirement. It doesn't satisfy the spirit of law. Obviously, I didn't get it until Monday. Judge Rogers dismissed Cassidys objection, allowing Brookes to See SURCHARGE page 3 Annual event coincides with MLK holiday JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See ACTIVIST page 7 JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See DERAILED page 3 JEFF BRYAN Riverland News

For information, call Judy at 489-2689. station located the accident in a wooded area about a mile south of County Road 328. The news release stated MCFR evaluated the scene to make sure there were no injuries, no fires and no leaks, and declared the scene secure at 5:38 a.m. The wreckage sure caught the attention of plenty of passers-by and train enthusiasts throughout the afternoon as Florida Northern worked to remove the boxcars from the track and make necessary repairs. Several motorists driving by slowed to a crawl as passengers emerged from the windows to take pictures, while others pulled to the side of the road to watch workers assess the situation while heavy equipment was brought in to assist with cleanup efforts. Kevin Gould, who was a CSX employee for 10 years and has been a self-proclaimed train enthusiast for 35 years, said he believed the accident was caused by the tracks becoming too brittle from the recent cold weather, which caused them to break under the weight of the train causing it to derail. I do not believe that this was the fault of the railroad, Gould told WUFT, a University of Florida-based news program, who was at the scene taking pictures of the accident. The damages from the crash could easily be around a million dollars, he said. He said he felt sorry for them having to deal with the situation. Unfortunately, its a part of railroading and it happens everywhere this time of year, he said. For Paul Kardasz and his 4-year-old son, Demitry, it was a chance to make a daytrip. Kardasz works on the sports copy desk for the Gainesville Sun and had read about the incident on its website. Typically, he explained, he and his son attempt to find something to do in the late morning and early afternoons before he reports to work. Hes a big railroad enthusiast, Paul Kardasz said about his son. So we thought wed come down and see what this was all about. After years of working construction jobs of his own, Paul Kardasz said the hours the clean-up crew spent were likely going to be significant. Ive seen my share of construction site jobs and cleanup jobs as well, he explained. Ive never seen anything of this magnitude.

Both parties met in court July 25, six months ago, Brookes said. They have certainly had sufficient time to provide evidence, Brooks said, adding the filing for partial summary judgment was to seek the judge to rule that the 25 percent surcharge is unreasonable. According to Florida Statute 180.191, adopted by state lawmakers several years ago, municipalites within the state operating a water or sewer utility outside of the boundaries of such municipality shall charge consumers outside the boundaries rates, fees, and charges determined in one of the following manners: It may charge the same rates, fees, and charges as consumers inside the municipal boundaries. However, in addition thereto, the municipality may add a surcharge of not more than 25 percent of such rates, fees, and charges to consumers outside the boundaries. Fixing of such rates, fees, and charges in this manner shall not require a public hearing except as may be provided for service to consumers inside the municipality. It may charge rates, fees, and charges that are just and equitable and which are based on the same factors used in fixing the rates, fees, and charges for consumers inside the municipal boundaries. In addition thereto, the municipality may add a surcharge not to exceed 25 percent of such rates, fees, and charges for said services to consumers outside the boundaries. However, the total of all such rates, fees, and charges for the services to consumers outside the boundaries shall not be more than 50 percent in excess of the total amount the municipality charges consumers served within the municipality for corresponding service. No such rates, fees, and charges shall be fixed until after a public hearing at which all of the users of the water or sewer systems; owners, tenants, or occupants of property served or to be served thereby; and all others interested shall have an opportunity to be heard concerning the proposed rates, fees, and charges. Any change or revision of such rates, fees, or charges may be made in the same manner as such rates, fees, or charges were originally established, but if such change or revision is to be made substantially pro rata as to all classes of service, both inside and outside the municipality, no hearing or notice shall be required. Brooks maintained the statute does not require city to levy any surcharge. It should not be assessed, he added. It is unconstitutional. The Cape Coral-based attorney cited several cases in state history. He also noted neither systems are interconnected Its obvious based upon review the city cannot show and prove no additional costs exists in this case. The city of Dunnellon did not have existing lines or create lines. There is no interconnection of (Rainbow Springs Utility) with the city's system. Brookes said in multiple affidavits with city officials and Andy Burnham with Burnham & Associates the city did not prove there was increased cost of service. The cIty will tell you that the cost is the advantage of the economy of scale, Brookes said. That doesnt meet any rational basis. RSU residents should pay less than city residents, who are receiving the benefits. Cassidy argued the city has filed multiple documents about how and why it is justified in charging surcharge. The way the plaintiffs have read (Statute) 180 is very narrow, very inflexible, she said.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, January 23, 2014 City attorney as much to blame as Florida Cable Its time for real change For the pat three-and-ahalf years, Ive had a front row to the circus, as John Sharkey summed it up a month or two ago. We were both sitting through a Dunnellon City Council meeting at City Hall. Several folks have been watching the circus for much longer than I have, but as Ive been observing it appears even though personnel changes, the performance remains the same. Its time for a change. Its time the taxpayers both residential and commercial property owners start holding officials, whether they are elected or appointed, accountable. Slightly more than seven years ago, the then-Dunnellon City Council made the decision to tell Gerald Dodd and Conservation Land Group LLC the community didnt need his proposed housing development along the Rainbow River. The decision of three newly sworn-in officials spurred then-Mayor John Taylors decision to resign and immediately walk out of City Hall. He predicted the decision of the majority would lead the city to financial ruin. Here we are folks. And, in case you havent been paying attention for at least the past three-and-a-half years, weve been watching as the decisions of the City Council continue to dig us deeper into financial problems instead of finding ways to solve the problem. The current City Council, under the leadership of Mayor Nathan Whitt, has shown no willingness to change the path we are on, refused to step forward and show us what true leadership can, and should, be. Much like their predecessors, they continue to stall. They continue to make decisions, which are digging us into a deeper financial hole instead of taking the bull by the horns and being proactive about positive changes. They are stalling from making the hard decisions, which would be the right choices for our taxpayers and businesses. Why? Because its simple to make the easy choices with the belief we can take our lumps down the road. Guess what? The community is tired of taking a beating for the poor decisions emerging from City Hall. Currently, they have an excuse for not being able to move forward. We have to get through this financial crisis. No. We do not have to wait. We can set the ball in motion so when the dust settles from a few of our problems, were already on the road to solving a few issues. Its amazing to watch other communities close by discuss plans for embracing ecotourism; watching them work hand-in-hand with their communities to tout waterfront districts; wisely implement Community Development Area funds; zone necessary areas for commercial usage; and The Newspaper built on Community Pride. Publisher Gerry Mulligan Regional Manager John Provost Editor Jeff Bryan Member of the Florida Press Association RIVERLAND NEWS OUR VOICE THE OTHER GUY Mastering art of cooking THE JERSEY GIRL An old adage states: Dont shoot the messenger. There are a few folks unhappy with John Pierpont, but more precisely they are unhappy with how he delivered the news Florida Cable has yet to fund the $1.3 million purchase of the citys financially defunct telecommunications system. Mayor Nathan Whitt spent the better part of a 72-hour window, and then some, defending the actions of Eddie Esch, interim city manager, and Virginia Cassidy, city attorney, for withholding the news about the lack of funds being transferred into an escrow account. Publicly, the city was trying to avoid a firestorm of bad publicity. The city should be used to bad publicity, especially after the past three-and-half years, if not longer if you add in the longrunning saga of legal drama surrounding the proposed development of Rainbow River Ranch. But thats not what this is about. No, this is about the failure, or shortcoming if you will, for the botched closing of the sale of Greenlight Communications to Florida Cable and the way it was brought to the publics attention. First, most, if not all of us, probably recall the promises of this current administration to keep the public in the loop. This is about transparency. When former City Manager Lisa Algiere turned in her walking papers, we the public would be kept in the know. We were promised no more secrets. Shortly after the gavel dropped to start the Jan. 13 City Council meeting, both Esch and Cassidy should have interrupted Mayor Whitt and the other council members and delivered the bad news. Yes, it would have created a firestorm. It certainly would not have created what city officials are dealing with today and what they will deal with in the coming weeks as we all wait anxiously for Florida Cable to make good on the $1.3 million. Instead, both remained silent throughout the meeting, including their respective reports. It was during the public comments portion of the meeting was the news was delivered. We wonder if Pierpont had not received a pointed email from Cassidy if the public would even know about the current situation with Florida Cable. Its not that were angry with Florida Cable. We are. We are angry and disappointed with city officials for attempting to keep this quiet and sweep it under the rug until the funds were deposited in the escrow account. Secondly, were going to point fingers if Mayor Whitt refuses to do so. He and other officials want to solely fault Florida Cable for not having yet made good on the money. Certainly, the privately owned telecommunications system doesnt seem to have their act together. That falls on them and theyll be the ones who have to pay to repair their image within the area if they plan on attracting customers. Then again, most folks might find it funny they pulled the wool over the eyes of the city and folks will register in droves for services. No, Mr. Mayor, your esteemed, and recently appointed, city attorney shares the blame in this fiasco. First, when the closing was occurring, Cassidy should have seen that the funds existed. Instead, she signed the documents, handed over the keys and the lease with a handwritten note regarding directions for how to make her a signatory on the escrow account. Not once, at least from the last two public discussions, did she admit to verifying Florida Cable actually had the funds in place to pay for this deal. Thats Business 101. Anyone who has ever bought or sold an item, whether it was a house or car knows that. You do not hand over the title and keys with instructions about how to send payment. You get paid, then you hand over the title and keys. Cassidy dropped the ball, not once now but twice. That leaves us with an uneasy feeling and many concerns about our new legal representation. If the City Council is serious about keeping the public in the know, then it needs to send a unified message and publicly reprimand both Esch and Cassidy. If not, were going to wonder if our officials are being honest, or providing the same old lip service. Ihave finally mastered what I consider to be the art of cooking, also known as the art of creating a tasty spread when needed. I used to envy people who could whip things up at a moments notice and make the simplest things taste great. My mother-inlaw is one of those folks. Well show up sometimes unannounced and shell open her freezer and whip up a delicious meal within minutes that would make Emeril jealous. Recently, when more guests appeared at our house than we expected, my expertise kicked into gear. I created Manwich sliders, which everyone raved about, threw tortilla chips, cheese and anything else I could find on a baking sheet to resemble nachos and found a package of cocktail wieners in the back of the freezer, which became hors doeuvres with barbeque sauce and salsa for dipping. Some deviled eggs, a big salad and a bag of chips and dip made with sour cream and onion soup mix and you would have thought I knew they were coming. Ive discovered spices go a long way in the taste buds. If you season something just right, you can make it taste gourmet. Put tomatoes and mozzarella in a bowl and its good, but add balsamic vinegar, olive oil, sea salt and basil and its great. I probably go through more olive oil, Italian seasoning and garlic than most people. I make this simple dish of fettuccini, shrimp and diced tomatoes and Russell said its fit for Olive Garden. Believe me, its the seasonings I use. Oh, and a really nice Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Yum, Yum. Theres also a lot to be said about presentation. Place the food on a decorative, crystal platter with some garnish surrounding it and it gets more oohs and aahs than the paper plate would. I have to give credit where credit is due. I learned a lot of these tips from Rachael Ray. In fact, I feel I went from a good cook to a very good cook all from her. She definitely taught me about EVOO, Herbs de Provence and making simple food taste great. I had to finally stop watching her cooking show because I wanted to create every single recipe. Another good cooking habit is a pinch here and a little bit more there. There can be no measurements. Theres no way to judge the right amount except by taste. Thats why Ill never be a successful baker. Measuring never seems to work for me. A lot of getting things right is trial and error. When making rice, boil one minute, stir only once, cover and leave it for 22 minutes. Its perfect every time. I like to take very basic recipes and make them my own. Meatloaf, baked ziti and scalloped potatoes are just a few of the things Ive perfected to fit my taste. I keep revising them until I get it just right. It may take four or five tries, but once everybody starts raving, it becomes a keeper. My Thanksgiving stuffing recipe came about when I took three different recipes I love and put them all together. Now the family says that is their favorite dish during the holidays. On a recent Sunday afternoon, I was feeling none too happy with my hubby for reasons I cant even remember now. Some people take a walk to calm down, or read a book. I started cooking. Next thing you know, I had made homemade meatballs with red gravy, which I added to a pan of sausage and peppers. I called it Unstuffed Stuffed Peppers. It was delicious. Im sure Russell thinks I cooked as a peace offering, but actually it just made me feel better. Plus, our tummies were happy. It falls on me now every weekend and family gatherings to plan the menu. But, honestly, I wouldnt want to give it up and Id probably feel useless if somebody else were doing it. My oldest daughter recently moved into a house big enough for entertaining. She said next holiday everybody can come to her house. Im proud of her for offering, because when I was her age I could barely boil water. Ill have to share some of my secrets with her. After all, imitation is the greatest form of flattery.

present those plans to their respective communities. In Dunnellon, we have none of that. We discuss how often we should advertise zoning changes in the newspaper, fire assessment fees and if dilapidated historical buildings ready to cave in should be restored. And then the Council questions why citizens and business owners arent coming out in full force to see all of the positive work they are doing. Thats because none of it is positive. Its stalling. Its avoiding the real issues. Dunnellon has spirit. Folks have shown that to be true. Business leaders have shown they care, that they want our city to prosper and businesses to flourish. If we can band together to organize a Christmas parade in four weeks, why is it we cannot band together to demand the City Council begin making changes directed at moving the community forward in the best interest of the citizens and business community? If we cannot, or if we refuse to, then its going to be business as usual at City Hall and the circus act will continue to perform. And if thats the case, would someone bring me a bag of hot peanuts and a large drink to watch the show? City officials need to be oustedHow dare you (Eddie Esch and Virginia Cassidy) take it upon yourselves to keep anything from the citizens of Dunnellon and our mayor elected by the majority of the voters. You two have given the residents of Rainbow Springs and their sister subdivisions even a greater reason not to trust Dunnellon. Just what were you two thinking to keep facts from the people? And what angers me, Mr. Esch, is this is not the first deception you dished out to the people who did have Greenlight Communications. We happened to discover that programming we paid for was no longer available to us and was replaced by some 1940s sitcoms and advertisements. Yet, the city charged us for what we had in the beginning. How did we handle that bit of dirty business? Well, we had all A-plus programming and dropped every bit of Greenlight TV programming. Not only did you fail to inform us of the rip off and changes, you took it upon yourself to slap ho drum garbage in our package deal. So now we have a sweet one-year contract with another cable company and plenty of programs to watch. But as a 30-year Dunnellon resident you two need to get out of office ASAP as with you hiding important data from the residents, you are not to be trusted and you placed yourself above the mayor, who was elected by the people and above the people. Mr. Esch you stink and for your attorney friend she needs to go. There is no excuse to hide any information from the people. Mary Hacker,Dunnellon Editors Note: The city manager and city attorney are appointed. Mr. Esch is currently interim city manager. Mrs. Cassidy could either resign or be terminated by the City Council.Mishandling of sale due to incompetence On eBay and even Craigslist, sellers are cautioned not to transfer property or even merchandise until they receive the full purchase price paid in full. Even trusted relatives have to bring cash or a certified check to a closing if you have a good attorney or common sense. I guess the Dunnellon city attorney and the city manager missed the class on real estate and business closings. How do you explain the inexplicable? In the case of Dunnellon, failing to get the firehouse sale price of $1.3 million at the Greenlight transfer of property, only one word explains it and that word is incompetence. It really was not a closing it was a property transfer, in my opinion. At a closing, money is exchanged. This reminds me when Dunnellon bought the broken, in contempt of court, Rio Vista utility system and the wrong piece of property was transferred to the city. The Rio Vista people, of course, amended the error as they certainly did not want their broken system back. Again, how do you explain the inexplicable? Buying the Greenlight house for $75,000 as Greenlight was imploding, again inexplicable. There are too many inexplicable actions during the past three years for me to detail. The whole Greenlight saga has been inexplicable from the beginning to now the bitter end. The need for Greenlight never existed as we were, by government standards, a fully serviced communications community. The planning, financing, operations and economic viability were never explained to the public as it was inexplicable. What Greenlight did do was allow the city to keep up the faade that it was economically viable. To allow the abuse of public trust, pay no heed to public input and not even question absurd Greenlight actions is indeed inexplicable. Then to gouge good neighbors to the north with utility surcharges to pay for city mismanagement is just wrong. I attended the court hearing Jan. 17 regarding the Rainbow Springs class-action lawsuit about the surcharge. In my humble opinion, the same question applies to the surcharge: how do you explain the inexplicable? From my laymans point of view, the city did not explain or justify the surcharge except for the famous because we can mantra. Common sense and reality based reasoning on the more than $4 million borrowed from the utility fund in two years point out that the rates and surcharge were set to provide revenue for city operations. I would say the attorney representing Rainbow Springs did an outstanding, clear and understandable presentation, bolstered with facts. One of the citys amusing presented points was that the surcharge was needed due to the legal cost of the lawsuit; a lawsuit filed after the rates and surcharge were implemented. In the real world of common sense that is calling grasping at straws. If Rainbow Springs wins, they will have the dubious privilege of joining Dunnellon residents in just paying some of the highest water rates in Florida. To sum up the underlying problem that is never addressed is that Dunnellon cannot afford all the services it provides and the revenue does not support the citys finance needs no matter how austere the budget. Basically, the city cannot afford to be a city with its past, present and future financial burdens. It is hard to face, hard to implement but to deny the harsh reality is inexplicable.

I am not too sure what this is all about but it seems to me it is a list of things people would like to do before they kick the bucket. Me, I do not plan to kick any bucket as long as I am alive. I have other targets for my kicking. I understand that the general concept is there are things people would like to do before they die and I suppose everyone has their own list. But I have too many things on my to-do-list from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. I affectionately refer to this as the kick my butt list. As long as I have been married, and it has been longer than I can remember, you would think I would have come to grips with this dynamic in the marriage relationship. To a certain extent, I have. I do certain things without asking any questions or even complaining, at least out loud. What I say under my breath is between me and myself. Sometimes we, me and myself, get into significant arguments. The problem is, I never know if me is winning or myself? In one case, there was a tie, but I cannot recall what it was about. Lately, I have come up with a novel tactic in dealing with this scenario. It came to me quite by accident. You know how it is, you think of something to say, but usually the day after you needed to say it. I have great comebacks to everything I hear except the fact that the comebacks are usually a day late and a phrase too short. I hate it when I am driving down the road and think of what I should have said. I have a whole list of what I should have said to certain people but it is too late and there is nothing I can do about it. Recently I hit the target. (I just hope my identity has not been hacked!) It was one day last week when my wife looked at me and said in one of those tones, Have you taken out the garbage? She is always surprising me with questions related to things she has asked me to do. My problem is my attention span is about as long as my memory. Personally, I think she takes advantage of me in this area. I looked at her with one of my infamous dummified faces. She responded, You did not take out the garbage, did you? You never do what I ask you to do. Without thinking, and I mean it quite literally, I quipped, Well, Ive never robbed a bank ... yet! Where that came from, I will never know. To my recollection, I have never even thought about robbing a bank. I do not know where I would start in the first place. With an astonished look my wife responded, What bank have you been thinking of robbing? It worked beautifully. I did not think it would work as well as it did because I did not put any forethought into this. However, it did get her off the topic at hand. For the next several moments, all she could talk about was me robbing a bank and the horrific trouble we would be in if caught. Any individual successful in life needs to be able to put forth the proper words. For me, I found the right words. Coming in the door the other day I was greeted with, Did you get the quart of milk I asked you to get when you left this morning? Without thinking, which is the beauty of this strategy, I responded by saying, No, and I havent robbed a bank yet, either. Only one problem with this kind of victory. Who can I brag to about it? I cannot tell my wife because then I could not use it anymore. It is awful to have something that you cannot share with your significant other. I am not sure how long I can keep this secret. The only thing I can do at this point is to smile. And boy, have I been smiling lately. No matter what she throws my way, I respond by smiling and saying, And I havent robbed a bank yet, either. Is it possible to have too much fun? I mean, as a husband? All my life I have tried to get the upper hand and all my life I have not succeeded only to shake hands with myself. Until now, that is. How long it will last is anybodys guess. Im just not guessing at this point. Sometimes people get depressed about all the things they have done in life. Some are pretty bad things. Occasionally, it is good to think about all the things you have not done. I may not be as good as I should be but then again, I am not as bad as I could be, either. Leastways, I have never robbed a bank. Thinking about this I was reminded of what the apostle Paul said. Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost (Titus 3:5). Thankfully, my salvation is not built upon what I can do, but upon what He has already done for me.6 Riverland News, Thursday, January 23, 2014 Attend the worship service of your choice... 000GK64 000GUYF 11251 S.W.

The event began at McDonalds as participants made the 1.4-mile trek along U.S. 41. The Rev. Lante Thomas agreed. The young people need to be educated, because they may not appreciate the freedoms and opportunities their parents, grandparents or the generations before them didnt have, he explained. Those opportunities exist everywhere, from educational opportunities to the job market. I grew up in all-black neighborhood, Cummings said. You didnt see many white folks coming in there, unless they were insurance salesmen. Thats just the way it was for me growing up. Thats not the case now. Now, we have the freedom to live in any neighborhood we choose to, he explained. While the national scene is filled with highprofile leaders such as President Obama and the Rev. Jesse Jackson, both Cummings and Thomas said more leadership is needed on the local level to encourage todays youth to take advantage of the opportunities they have, not squander them. Both pointed to Terrence Brooks, a starter and four-year member of the Florida State Seminoles and former NFL players Ernie Mills, Tito McKeever and Ricky Easom as local folks who todays youth can look up to. They also noted Regas Woods, the cofounder of the Never Say Never Foundation, who competed in the Paralympic World Championships in France in July 2013. All of them graduated from Dunnellon High School. They all proved you could have opportunities outside of Dunnellon, they explained. And they all have made the most of those opportunities. Cummings said times have changed, but the dream Dr. King spoke of has not become a complete reality. We still havent fulfilled his dreams, he said. We need to do more for our communities. It starts at home; it starts in our communities, where its a grassroots effort. Both men praised the efforts of the individuals who participated and city officials for making the event possible. Were happy with the turnout, Cummings said about the larger crowd this year. Itll get bigger and bigger, so then perhaps folks wont see it as just another day off or a cook out with games. We have a message we need to share.

Aytons physics classes move experiment to hallway In Bob Aytons classes, there is always something interesting going on from exploding chemical experiments to labs and other stimulating activities done inside the classroom. The students get hands on learning experience when taking one of his three classes. Between his AP Physics and AP Chemistry, something fruitful is being performed with an educational purpose behind it broadening the minds of all the students. Ayton recently put the markers away and used the whiteboards for something other than what it was designed for as a writing surface. They were used to propel handmade race cars to the finish line. The two physics classes were put to the test to see who could construct the most aerodynamic car that could travel in a straight line the quickest. They could only use connected pieces and two white index cards. There were many different shapes and sizes among all the groups, being unique in their own way hoping to come out on top and beat the other cars. Some groups decided to use the whiteboards as a ramp and others just started on level ground. The students then had to follow their cars, waving their whiteboards to create wind and win the race. The first round was to see who went to the championship round. The two with the fastest time went at it again to see who really is the fastest in the championship race. The winners for fourth period were: Courtney Heinritz, Laura Riley, Bryce Thalacker and Jody Weber. Even though some whiteboards didnt make it out in one piece, it was a great learning experience and also a very enjoyable friendly competition between peers. Our group didnt win but it was still a lot of fun and I learned from it, Jesse Wallace said.

reimbursing the city for attorneys fees. David Suarez, the president/CEO of Florida Cable, agreed to pay a $48,000 fine, most of which has already been collected by the city through profits of Greenlight/Florida Cable. In addition, Florida Cable will pay a daily fine of $2,300 until Suarze pays the city. Suarez would not agree to nullify the sale of the system and turn Greenlight back into the hands of the city. If he does not deliver the $1.3 million for the telecommunications system, the Council approved filing a lawsuit against Suarez and Florida Cable for breach of contract. News of the turn of events was delivered Jan. 13 to the City Council, but it was neither Eddie Esch, interim city manager, nor Cassidy who told elected officials during their respective reports. Instead it was John Pierpont of Pierpont Consultants LLC who told the Council that Florida Cable had yet to fund the deal. Both the public and Council sought answers to how the problem unfolded. Resident Mary Ann Hilton, who frequently attends Council meetings, said when she read the news, it was a tremendous surprise to her. Im wondering if were going to get answers as to what happened, why they did not allow that information to go to who it should have gone to, Hilton said, referencing Esch and Cassidy as officials who knew, and the Council and public, as to who should have been told. Our lawyer did a close of a sale without getting money, and I have a great deal of respect for Mr. Esch, but this has left me feeling uneasy. Id like to know whats going on. One person is responsible for what needed to be done. Id like to know why none of them made it known to you and us. Mayor Nathan Whitt cautioned against personal attacks or throwing anyone under the bus, adding the true fault is Florida Cable for not funding the deal as agreed in the sales contract. Tonight is obviously an issue they didnt have to tell us about, Mayor Whitt said in reference to Esch and Cassidy. Much of our staff didnt know this was the case until late last week. We certainly didnt want to create this firestorm. We have a lot of questions. The main question is how the deal with Florida Cable was allowed to go through without the funds being transferred. The firstterm mayor pointed out he recently helped his father-in-law purchase a new house in the area. Before the contract could be finalized, he explained, his fatherin-law had to show the funds for the home were in escrow. Why was it even closed on without money in escrow? Whitt asked about the agreement with Florida Cable. Cassidy explained the contract with Florida Cable stipulated the privately owned company to open an escrow account with the understanding that was to be completed in the morning and the need for her to be authorized as the signatory of the account. That was going to take place in the afternoon, she said, never telling the Council or the public the company showed it had the funds available to close the deal. Documents were signed, the title, leases, equipment and keys to the facility were turned over to Florida Cable without an exchange of money. The next day was Christmas Eve, followed by Christmas then New Years Eve and New Years Day as well as a family emergency, Cassidy explained. In addition, she told the Council her office manager, who helps oversee escrow accounts, was on vacation. I expected to get an email from Florida Cable at that time (Dec. 23) that would be copied to Eddie (Esch, interim city manager) that they have paid, Cassidy added. Per an agreement with Michael Markham, special legal counsel for the city, Pierpont approved being paid from the funds in escrow. Markham and Esch had instructed Pierpont to submit a bill, which Esch approved payment of and told the citys finance department to authorize payment. Pierpont was paid, but from the citys general funds not from the escrow account, which Cassidy had lone control over. Esch said it wasnt until the $39,000 fee to John Pierpont of Pierpont Consultants LLC needed to be paid that spurred concerns, revealing that Florida Cable had not paid the $1.3 million. Cassidy then emailed Pierpont on Jan. 13 ordering him to return the check for his companys services, because his work had not been completed. The fee collected by Pierponts agency was a success payment for negotiating the sale of Greenlight to Florida Cable. However, Pierpont was not directly involved in the official closing of the deal. The City Council on Jan. 13 approved payment, in full, to Pierponts company. Cassidy told the Council it was Markham and Florida Cable who agreed to allow the telecommunications company to create and fund the escrow. She explained she typically does establish escrows; however, when opening escrows she typically uses Regions Bank. Regions Bank is the financial institution which loaned the city $7.3 million in November 2010 to construct Greenlight; however, as city officials learned in the middle of 2013, the fiber-to-the-home program has been losing money at a rapid pace. By November 2013, when the city was required to pay a $1.6 million bond payment to Regions, officials could not do so. Their failure to make the payment triggered a lawsuit by Regions against the city, which in turn spurred city officials to declare a state of financial emergency with Gov. Rick Scotts office, asking to declare bankruptcy. We can finger point and lambast all we want; theres only one finger to be pointed. ... We all know who is at fault, Mayor Whitt said. But Vice Mayor Dennis Evans suggested it was best to hear from Suarez. This could all become moot and theres a possibility this will go well, Evans offered. Suarez offered an apology for the delays and problems caused with funding the escrow. He said he doesnt handle the financial aspects of Florida Cable, which is left to his group of investors. I never thought any of us would be in this situation, he told the Council. Its unfortunate, we rushed through some things. I sent the information to our funding partner. Suarez said he never contacted any of them, then received emails from Cassidy regarding the funding. It shocked me, he added, noting his funding partner deals with an average of $40 billion on a yearly basis. These are not fly-by-night guys. Suarez told the Council he has $10 million to facilitate moving forward with expanding the now-defunct Greenlight system. Suarez explained the Department of Homeland Security held the funds, because his funding partners do business overseas as well. Neither he, nor his partners anticipated any delays or for it to take this long. In hindsight, he admitted, he never wanted the proceeds of the sale to be placed in escrow. I agreed to something I shouldnt have agreed to. Suarez asked the Council for an extended timeline in which to secure a short-term financial deal with a financial institution in the region. I want to get this thing taken care of for everybody. You have been through way too much, he said. I do apologize for all of the delays. We do have the money. Rainbow Springs resident Paul Marraffino didnt seem to believe the story. Yeah, yeah, yeah, he quipped, sitting a few rows behind the podium. We have the ability to get this down and we will, Suarez responded. In addition to the fines Suarez agreed to pay, he will also have to reimburse the city for attorneys fees. Councilman Erik Collop wasnt in favor of such an extended deadline and favored a large daily fine of upward to $25,000. He knows he needs to pay, that its very important to get the money to us, Collop said. It sucks to get a penalty charge; it should mean hes more motivated to get this done. Evans countered reminding his colleagues the total sum of the deal is what is important. As part of the revised agreement, the funds will not be placed in an escrow account with two checks one for $1 million and the other for $300,000 to be written out to Cassidys law firm, which will be responsible for establishing the escrow account. The other two checks one for the remaining fine and the second for attorneys fees are to be made out to the city of Dunnellon. Suarez told the Council the moment he has the funds, he would personally deliver the checks to Maitland where Cassidys firm is located. Thats nice of him Collop said tongue in cheek. Mayor Whitt offered Suarez a stern warning after the deal was approved, 4-0, by the Council with Collop abstaining from the vote due to his father-inlaws involvement in the negotiation process with Florida Cable. I want to make sure we dont have this discussion again, Mayor Whitt said. Added Suarez: I dont want to put anybody through this again.
