    Plenty to do in

    great little city

    We live in a great little city. There is so much going on for us to enjoy. Our library is always busy. They have speakers, movies and book sales. The churches are always offering programs of all types. Now they have entertainment at the depot, dinners, plays and yard sales. Superior Bank gave Dunnellon an evening of fun last week. Restaurant owners set up tables of food for everyone to enjoy and lots of music.

    Don’t blame Chamber

    for city’s decision

    I can’t believe the way some members of the business community are acting over Jazz Up.

    This year the city of Dunnellon has decided to keep the festival on the West end of Pennsylvania Ave. for safety reasons. So guess what, several "business professionals" from the East end are up in arms and blame the Chamber of Commerce. Hello! Blaming the chamber for a decision made by the city of Dunnellon is the same as blaming your cat if your dad looses his job.

  • Give your gift of blood

    One of the busiest times for blood centers is the summer. Unfortunately, at the local level, the demand has been exceeding the supply.

    Dunnellon has a convenient facility for blood donations, but many may be unaware of its existence. Certainly, the signage on the building is not memorable. Perhaps green is not the right color for the sign of a place wanting red blood.

    Perhaps people are more tuned in to the bloodmobiles and their visibility than to a place in a strip shopping center.

  • Something to crow about

    Last Saturday’s unique “back yard chicken swap meet” hosted by Tractor Supply was one of those great home-town events tailor-made for Dunnellon.

    There are enough farms and people who still are more rural than urban in this community who benefited from the venue provided to sell, swap and trade what they had on their farm – or something they wanted to add to what they already have.

    A modern day

    Declaration of Independence

    We hold these truths to be self-evident – that we the people — are tired of being told what to eat, to think, and what we should tolerate, condone and endorse.

    We are tired of seeing Christianity bashed, hearing God blasphemed, perversion praised and prayer and religion expelled from public and government life.

    We the People – are fed up with Greenpeace, global warming, animal rights and all manner of environmental wacko-ism.

    It was a buzz kill

    Okay, so I’ve tried to be a politically correct International sports fan and get into this World Cup football (soccer) mania, but I am having a lot of difficulty figuring things out.

    If it’s called the “Federation Internationale de FOOTBALL Association,” then why are these games played with a soccer ball and not a football? Why not just call it like it is… soccer?
