As you know, The Withlacoochee River is in dire straights. There are many reasons for this decline, not the least of which, are leaky septic tanks, farm runoff, Aquifer depletion and over use of herbicides. Herbicide use in the lake above the river spillway has gone unchecked for years. Spraying is done regularly and the agencies doing the applications have no clue about impact or citizen concerns. Please take a minute before you leave the blog today to take the Lake Rousseau Survey. This information will be very helpful in the advocacy process to bring better practices to our water resources.

Oh, What A Wonderful Mornin’ !
I’ve discovered several new things I’m excited to share with you today. High technology is literally exploding. I can’t get enough of this modern “grapevine” thing. It is its own parallel universe to the boring and cumbersome reality of the truth. As a novice “grapevine” aficionado I’ve only achieved the first level. This past Wednesday, I got a clue about the viney mystery of the Grapevine Crystal Ball. As I read Rhonda Kline’s letter in the FishWrapper, I was stunned by how she predicted what was going to happen at the last Tuesday’s, Inglis Commission meeting. It was amazing stuff . . . clairvoyance taken to another level. She wrote about garbage, but the scourge of humanity, Adolf Hitler got play as a commission example, and the sanctity of the Lord was invoked for good measure. Previously, even Ukraine and Russia were thrown in as similar examples of commission transgressions. My, we’ve gone global!
Grapevine administrators need to call tech support because the Crystal Ball is malfunctioning. Only a tiny bit of info therein contained elements of truth. Oppsie! How foolish of me. I missed the whole point of using “grapevine” assets.
There is something missing in Kline’s evangelizing. I think somewhere there was a significant event described in the Old Testament. It involved a guy named Moses and a mountain where Moses received stone tablets and a lecture from GOD himself. They became known as the Ten Commandments. The tablets contained a set of rules that today have escaped a significant number of contemporary worshipers.
I hope someone will let Ms.Kline know that she can obtain a free, custom fitted lightning rod from the town Public Works. It looks like a defrocked umbrella. Also, the grapevine bulletin board had an announcement for a Pinnochio nose job clinic to be held at Lil’ Caesar’s grand opening next to the Kangaroo.

More Breaking News
My God, this is fun. I’ve never had so much material to work with. Why didn’t I think to get into this political thing before, now. It has been the best barometer of the state of my personal health you could ask for. I haven’t had a heart attack yet and my head hasn’t exploded. I can’t say, for sure, that that hasn’t happened to a fellow commissioner.
The town has one more disenchanted member of the commission who appears to be in the process of quitting. She's been gone for almost sixty days. This is another insightful preview of what the Gang Of Five crew has in store for you if the asylum inmates win the next election. Sally Price is a charter member of Monteverde's Gang of Five. She has chosen to abandon the town rather than resign. This is exactly what these sore losers think of Inglis.
So . . . they'll be losing her, but fear not, Commissioner Smalldridge has already taken her place. Better to be embraced by your enemies, than shunned by all?? No matter how conflicted, birds of a feather always flock together.
Since falling from a majority participation, Commissioner Price has become very quiet. Now she has carried that state to a new level. She periodically checks in to request faxes, submit policy demands, and of course, collect her check. Can’t leave the big money on the table.
One of the reasons I mentioned hi-tech is a rumored development regarding Price’s attendance to commission meetings. I understand that she will be attending future meetings via smartphone FaceTime. A modified broom handle, with her smartphone duck taped to the top, will be clamped to her chair. She will broadcast from a Bodega-Laundromat in South Beach. The FaceTime feed will be projected onto the wall behind her commission seat. That way, everyone can watch her do nothing for as long as she has enough quarters for the dryer.
As I mentioned above, we may have a new personality coming to town. If Commissioner Price never comes back then Strawberry would be a great replacement. Hey, she doesn’t talk as much as Price has lately. She’s an environmentalist. She loves everybody. And she will do what you ask her to do without violating the Sunshine Law. Once Strawberry settles in, most folks will notice the difference and as long as the bananas hold out she’ll be at every meeting.
As far as these folks are concerned, you have been given a rare opportunity. This is an inside look at what you can expect from government if you allow them to hijack the system with silliness and untruths. And do not forget, these are the people who want to dissolve your town and sell off its assets.
If you support progress, cleaning up the cosmetic and physical sides of your town, recruitment of low impact industry and educational facilities, tourist oriented marketing and attraction, and improved public services, stick with us. Despite three obstructionist, self-serving, part-time, political hacks, we are just getting started. The first community project is on its way to the drawing board. Early next year we will have EMS service with around the clock personnel, stationed at our Fire Department building. The addition of housing, emergency management and disaster response, along with administrative offices will be added to the existing structure. Inglis and Yankeetown citizens will be safer than they’ve ever been in an emergency, with response times that matter.
Enuff said ?
A little something dedicated to my friends of the Gang of Five. Recognize anybody ?
