As part of their livelihood, Dale and Loretta Snelling have operated the lake bait shop, and are often the first folks lake visitors meet. Dale?s retirement officially takes effect April 22.

Dale and Loretta Snelling will do more than retire in the usual sense of the word when they leave their home at Marion County Lake for a farm home near Wonsevu in April.

Dale has been park and lake superintendent at the county lake since 1964. That means 43 of their 46 years of marriage have been spent living at the lake in a job that usually has Dale up by 6 a.m. and many times out doing law enforcement duties around the water until 2 a.m.
