City targets new health insurance carrier


Council will vote on provider Monday


JEFF BRYAN
Riverland News

Dunnellon is small, or so say
health care providers.
City officials unveiled the op-
tions at a recent workshop to
continue providing employees
health care coverage, and it
won't come cheap to taxpayers
or those with families. Staff in-
formed council members the
change in health insurance
providers will cost about $60,000
extra in budget expenses. Cur-
rently, the city picks up the en-
tire tab for an employee, leaving


the employee to pay for addi-
tional family coverage. The city
must also offer coverage to its
retirees.
"It was quite a process," City
Clerk Dawn Bowne said. "The
bottom line is we're going to take
a significant hit."
Currently, the city partners
with the cities of Ocala and
Belleview in a group plan. How-
ever, a few months ago, Ocala
city officials put Dunnellon and
Belleview leaders on notice of
its intent to drop out of its joint
venture to provide employees
with health care insurance.


HEALTH INSURANCE: CURRENT VS. PROPOSED


* Currently, the city of Dunnellon is insured by Blue Cross Blue Shield;
however, staff is recommending switching to United Health Care. The
city pays the cost of its employees coverage, but the employee is left
to pay the difference for families. Below, are the differences in its cur-
rent and proposed plans.


Monthly Single
Single, plus one
Single, plus children


Family


Current plan
$301.91

Proposed plan
$456.65
$520.58*
$409.20*


$470 $1,003.69*

MEGA MYSTERY


JEFF BRYAN/Riverland News
A customer checks over his lottery tickets he recently purchased at Quick King Food Store. The
store recently sold a $2 million winner in the Mega Money drawing.

Store sells $2M Mega Money ticket; prize still unclaimed


JEFF BRYAN
Riverland News

For Jay and Gary Pateal of
Quick King Food Store at 19721
W State Road 40, there's rea-
son to celebrate their first an-
niversary as co-owners.
The brothers took over the
store in August 2009.
Their store recently sold a $2
million winning ticket in the
Mega Money drawing. The
Pateals will receive a $1,000
bonus commission for selling
the winner in the Aug. 17 draw-
ing, a state lottery spokes-
woman said.
"It's good for the store," Jay
Pateal said about the attention
that will likely come from hav-
ing sold the winning ticket. "It's
definitely going to increase
lotto sales here. People will
think this is a good-luck store."


WAS IT YOU?
Were you the winner of the
$2 million Mega Money draw-
ing? If so and you're willing
to come forward, the River-
land News wants to do a
story about you. Contact
Editor Jeff Bryan at 489-2731
or e-mail editor@riverland
news.com.

When the brothers first heard
the news last week from cus-
tomers, they were in disbelief.
"We thought some of the cus-
tomers were joking," Jay said.
"We just didn't believe them.
Then, they looked up the infor-
mation and it was true."
He said the winner or win-
ners have not come forward to
share the news with them. As of
presstime Tuesday, the winning
ticket was still unclaimed, ac-


cording to the Florida Lottery
website, www.flalottery.com.
"It's a blessing for whoever
won it," Jay said, referring to
the $2 million prize, which will
likely be $1.5 million after
taxes are taken out of the win-
nings.
Customers visiting the store
last Thursday said they had
heard the news, wishing it had
been them who had bought the
winning ticket. One customer
jokingly asked if he can get a
refund for his $1 lotto ticket if
it's not the winner.
According the Florida Lot-
tery website, all prizes greater
than $250,000 must be claimed
at Florida Lottery headquar-
ters in Tallahassee. Players
should call the Player Informa-
tion Line at (850) 487-7787 or
TDD (850) 487-7784 for instruc-
tions and assistance.


Burglary


suspect


sought

Home invasion
occurred Friday
JEFF BRYAN
Riverland News

It had been a beautiful
day so far for Johana San-
tiago.
The mother of two had
just been to orientation at
Dunnellon Elementary
for her second-grade son.
She left him with her
mother and went to her
house to make a quick
stop before heading off to
her job as an assistant
day care worker.
She pulled into her
driveway on St. Patrick
Drive, left her car run-
ning, and headed for the
front door. That's when
she realized something
was amiss. Her front door
was slightly ajar, so she
pushed it open and saw a
young man in her house.
So Santiago did the
first thing that crossed
her mind. She went back
to the car to get her hand-
gun, while she called 911.
"I was focused on put-
ting a bullet in him," San-
tiago said. "I'm sorry, but
that's the truth."
By the time she re-
trieved her firearm from
her vehicle, Santiago said
the would-be burglar was
darting out the back door,
but the emergency dis-
patcher advised her to
stay in her house.
"I was going to go after
him, but the officer ar-
rived," she said.
Santiago said the per-
son was young, maybe in
his teens.
"He could've been
older, but he had such a
baby face," she added.
Santiago just marked
her fourth year in the
house last Thursday. She
said it was the 100th

Board members, volunteers
honor founder with occasion


JEFF BRYAN
Riverland News

Annie W Johnson
passed away 10 years ago
last Friday
She's certainly not for-
gotten, and that's exactly
why board members and
volunteers picked the day
to celebrate the grand
opening of their recently
relocated Annie W John-
son Thrift Store.
Board members, volun-
teers and customers en-
joyed cake, ice cream,


punch, coffee and Sloppy
Joes. Customers also
sought out bargains in the
5,000-square-foot facility
in Historic Downtown
Dunnellon on West Penn-
sylvania Avenue.
Jenni Genco and Glena
Mortensen, both of
Tampa, were thrilled
with a chance to shop at
the store. They had
driven by the day before,
but after hours.
"We love thrift stores,"
said Mortensen, noting
they were headed to tube


the Rainbow River after-
ward. "We're going to
need a basket soon."
Just then, Genco ar-
rived with one. Her son,
Cash, was thrilled with
finding an unopened
water gun for 25 cents. He
scurried to the counter,
tossed his dollar up and
ran back to his mother
announcing his purchase.
A cashier found him and
gave him his new treas-
ure and his mother the
change.
"Business has been fan-
tastic," said Darlene
Parker, executive direc-
tor of the Annie W John-

For those curious
about where all those
fire trucks are going, the
answer is just a few key-
strokes away.
Now online is access
to a live fire-rescue
scanner allowing resi-
dents to stay in the know
on where Marion County
Fire-Rescue is going or
what it may be doing in
your neighborhood.
Access the information
by going online to mari-
oncountyfl.org/fire-
calls/Firescan.aspx,
once there, visitors will
see a list of where and
what firefighters and
paramedics are respond-
ing too.
The information
shown includes the date,
the time that call came
in, what type of call it is
and the location.
To protect residents'
privacy, the exact ad-
dress is not disclosed
but crossroads are used,
said Miranda Iglesias,
public information offi-
cer for Marion County
Fire-Rescue.
And the call type de-
scription used on the
scanner doesn't list a
specific medical com-
plaint either, again to
protect a patient's pri-
vacy, said Iglesias.
In case of a heart at-
tack or a stroke or any
medical situation, those
calls are referred to as
"medical incidents." An
incident where the situ-
ation is more trauma ori-
ented, such as a
shooting, stabbing or se-
rious fall, comes under
the description of
"trauma incident."
There are 21 descrip-
tions for calls including
aircraft emergency, citi-
zen/public assist, grass


fires, structure fires,
mutual aid, technical
rescue, hazmat, lines
down and water rescue
that may be listed on the
scanner.
Information listed on
the scanner is updated
every five minutes.
Without a person dedi-
cated to the project, the
new scanner website was
six months in the mak-
ing.
County staff looked
into purchasing a system
that would offer the
same information from a
private company, but the
price tag was $20,000.
That's when county
staff decided they could
take on the project them-
selves without spending
any money, aside from
staff time, said Iglesias.
The online scanner is
similar to what is used
in Palm Beach County
and no other county in
Central Florida offers
such information, she
said.
"We're being open on
where we respond to
and where our citizens'
tax dollars are going,"
Iglesias said.
Information about dif-
ferent codes appearing
on the scanner is avail-
able by scrolling down
the page.
In addition, the fire
rescue website, marion-
countyfl.org/FireRes-
cue/Fire_default.aspx,
provides a map showing
where each unit is sta-
tioned.
Dunnellon area resi-
dents are served by the
MCFR stations 22 and 31
and the city of Dunnel-
lon Fire Rescue service.
Emergency calls an-
swered by the city of
Dunnellon, and other
municipalities in the
county, do not appear on
the scanner.

A 25-year-old Dunnellon
man's luck ran out Friday
morning after stealing
scratch-off lottery tickets
from the Kangaroo Store at
4750 S. U.S. 41.
According to the arrest
report, Christopher E.
Schubert paid for$10 worth
of gas at the store. When the
clerk went to stock the re-
frigerator, Schubert report-
edly reached across the
counter and took the lottery
tickets. The report stated he
took five 5 Times Lucky
tickets, six Monthly Bonus
tickets and two lottery tick-
ets valued at $22.
The report stated that

"Not knowing if this
could happen again, that
worries me," she said, as
she stood outside of her
house in the sweltering
heat. "How can you be
safe when it happens in
your own home? A lot of
different scenarios are
running through my mind
right now what if he
had a gun, what if my son
was with me and he was
the first one through the
door? It's scary"
According to Dunnellon
Police Chief Joanne
Black, her agency has
been following up leads
and speaking to other wit-
nesses.
"We've got some very
good leads," Black said.
The suspect is de-
scribed as a white male,
approximately 5 feet, 7
inches tall, between the
ages of 14 and 18. He was
wearing a yellow shirt
with stripes, blue jeans
and carrying a blue back-
pack.

'A child miseducated is a child lost'


As schools prepare to begin an-
other year, we urge everyone
in the community to be sup-
portive of our youths' academic en-
deavors.
First, and foremost though, is the
best support a child can get in their
education starts in the home with
their parentss. We ask that those
rearing a child in our schools to be
supportive, encouraging, but most
importantly, be involved. Communi-
cate with their teachers and coun-
selors; discover their strengths and
weaknesses in the classrooms.
If there is a problem, help them. If
you can't help them, get them the
necessary help.
Encourage their love for learning.

'Cafe Nazi?'
You may remember the sitcom Sein-
feld, and you may recall the classic
116th episode titled, "The Soup Nazi."
The owner of the soup stand was actu-
ally based on a real person in New
York City whose soups were renowned
for their excellent quality, but his in-
teractions with his customers were
somewhat impolite and impulsive. The
term "Nazi" was used as an exaggera-
tion to describe the strict regimenta-
tion and manner of behavior he
demanded from his customers.
Here in Dunnellon, we have our very
own "Soup Nazi" in Abigail's Cafe. I
am not saying that is a bad thing, just
amusing. I have been to this eatery
twice and each time I have incurred
the wrath of the "Cafd Nazi." As I write
this, only one thought come to mind to
express what I experienced. FEAR.
Now I know how Jerry, George, and
Elaine felt! The next thoughts that
come to mind are good food, good serv-
ice, and extremely pleasant wait-
resses.
The first shock occurred when I was
with my mother who tried to make
harmless conversation with the "Cafd
Nazi," only to be rebuffed by rudeness
and made to feel like a yokel. The sec-
ond occurrence made me realize that
this behavior was actually "the real
her" and not just the rest of a bad day.
I was with a small group of folks from
an assisted living facility We entered
the establishment and was graciously
received by the waitress and quickly
seated. A few minutes later, the "Cafd
Nazi" approached the table and un-
ceremoniously, in great detail, admon-
ished the bus driver for blocking the
back parking lot, for which he was
guilty However, diplomacy and a little
touch of kindness would have been
more acceptable and expected from
an establishment to its customers.
I imagine after this expose, I may be
denied entrance into Abigail's Cafd for
1 year. I do not know if I can survive! It
is possible, after reading this, your cu-
riosity may be piqued, and you may be
tempted to have your own experience.
Just remember, as you enter, keep your
mouth shut and your eyes down.

Poor wording
This letter is in reference to an arti-
cle in your July 8 issue written by
Larry Bugg headlined "Dunnellon
Hammers Dixie 22-0." Several weeks
have passed and I was going to let it
go, but since it was brought up again
yesterday by my 11-year-old grand-
daughter who is still upset over it, I
felt like I had to have my say
First of all the paragraph began with
this sentence: "Domique White was
the losing pitcher." I'm not even going
to bring up the fact that her name was
misspelled or ask the question, "who
did he get his information from." The
only issue I am going to address is why
would you begin a story with a deroga-

THE OTHER


GUY


What's cooking now?


We want you to share


One of my fondest memories
growing up was spending time
in my grandmother's kitchen,
and as far as I was concerned she was
the best cook in the world. However,
my mother is always quick to point out
that baking was her specialty.
And bake she could, it was
like growing up with Little Deb-
bie, the Pillsbury Doughboy and
Ms. Smith (you know, the pie
lady in the frozen food section
at the grocery stores), all at
once. From pies to cookies to
breads and pastries, my grand-
mother had it down pat. To this JeffB
day, when my mother and I run Edi
into folks who knew my mother,
they recall the items they'd pur-
chase at the church bazaar that my
grandmother baked and donated.
It brings a smile to mom's face and a
void in my stomach. Somehow, the bak-
ing gene was passed over in mom's
DNA.
"It was her therapy," my mother told
me.
I've always harassed my mother for
not picking up on my grandmother's
specialties. My father would smile,
offer no comment and walk away. I
know he was thinking the same thing,
longing for the Oreo dessert, the
cherry-pie filled cookies or, better yet,
cream puffs.
I regret not using the time with my
grandmother in her kitchen more
wisely and learning her craft or more
importantly, her recipes. Many of them
she had stored in her mind and when
she passed nearly 15 years ago, took
them with her.
No longer can I enjoy her candied


apples, which leaves a void in my
stomach and the dinner table during
the holidays.
All I know is she peeled and cored
apples and dipped them in melted red
hots, chilled them and decorated them
with a sliver of pecan or wal-
nut. She had to make two
plates for the holidays one
plate just for me and one for
the rest of the family.
I love to cook when I get the
opportunity, but my culinary
skills are limited. I attempt to
stay within my bounds, but
ryan break loose with my limited
tor skills when my taste buds
yearn for more, or something
someone else whipped together.
So where is all this leading? Well,
obviously to your stomach.
Seriously, what I'm searching for is
a person who loves to cook, loves to
share their recipes and would love to
do it on a larger scale on a regular
basis. My hope is there is someone in
our wonderful community willing to
write a cooking/recipe column for the
Riverland News.
My grandmother loved to add
recipes to her collection by listening to
the old cooking shows on the radio
(yes, long before invention of the cook-
ing network) and clipping recipes from
magazines and our hometown newspa-
per.
So if you have a love of cooking and
recipes to share and would be willing
to write for the paper, I'd love to hear
from you. You can e-mail me at edi-
tor@riverlandnews.com or call me at
489-2731.

educators and administrators; don't
wait for them to ask for help, offer it
as soon as you meet them. For all we
know, they might be your neighbors;
and we should love our neighbor as
we love ourselves.
Today's generation of students cer-
tainly that have it tougher, but at
times easier. So much information
and technology at their fingertips;
yet so much demand. Yet, we should
be demanding when it comes to an
education.
President John F Kennedy once
said: "A child miseducated is a child
lost."
So let us hold the hands of our
youth and guide them down the edu-
cational path.

TIME TO SMILE



On the


cheap side

I had another bright idea. By now
you would think I know better
than to have bright ideas. I have
been doing my best to keep my house
clean. I am aiming for the minimalist
style. It has taken me several years
and I am nowhere near it. For
months, I have been putting junk in
my garage for a tag sale. I know here
in Florida they are yard/garage sales.
We go with what we know, so for the
sake of this column, when I use the
word tag sale you in-
sert yard/garage sale
(your choice).
So here it is the
middle of summer.
The heat index is 106.
It's 6 in the morning
and the humidity is
thick as fog. I am in
Kathleen my work pants and T-
Wallace shirt. I am soaking wet
in sweat and I have
only unpacked two
boxes of junk. It's going to be a very
long day!
My poor niece Kelsey was "volun-
teered" to help me. I had invited
Kelsey and her sister, Care, to put
stuff in the sale. Each of them is in
the process of moving. That's the best
time to do a clean up. I was already
selling my things and my mom's stuff.
On her last visit my sister "cleaned"
my mother's house. Maryellen is a
cleanaholic.
My mother and I are her enablers.
Kelsey showed up at 6:30 and dove
right in. She unpacked boxes with
speed. Around 7, I went in and took a
five-minute shower since I was
drenched. I changed into comfy
shorts and a top. By 7:10, the signs
were up and we were open for busi-
ness. It's nice living off a main road. I
put up a few signs on each corner, so
there was no need to advertise.
For the most part, I price every-
thing at 50 cents or below. I want this
stuff out of my house. It's easier than
haggling over a dime.
I never enjoy haggling. Just take the
thing and go. A few items are what
you call practical everyday items in
good condition that are worth a buck
or more. Those five or six items I set
at a firm price (furniture, good lug-
gage, lawn mower etc...). The rest of it
is pretty much stuff I can do without
or have outgrown.
Kelsey and I marvel over the stuff
people buy. Every hour we ask "Why
would anyone buy this stuff?" Hello!
You bought it in the first place, so you
must know the answer. Oh yes, that's
it. These people all have great taste!
By 11, I am on my third change of
clothes. I've had a gallon of water and
I am working on the second. We only
had one professional haggler. She
wouldn't give up. After 15 minutes,
she wore me down and walked out
with the bargain of the day.
At noon, I am suffering from sun-
stroke. We are giving things away. The
less we have to pack up and donate
the better. We adhere to the number
one rule in tag sales ... nothing goes
back in the house!
It's now 1:45 p.m. and my van is full.
The signs are down and the money is
counted. I am 25 cents short of mak-
ing $100. I have showered for the
third time and I am wearing my
fourth set of clothes. Me and my
bright ideas! I'll be napping for the
next 12 hours.

tory sentence such as
that? Wouldn't it sound
better to say the team lost
although Dominique
White did a resounding
job as pitcher? By saying
the losing pitcher was Do-
minique White does that
mean that the pitcher lost
the game? Why is it not
mentioned anywhere in
the article that the whole
team lost the game? Did it
say anywhere in the story
who the losing catcher
was, the losing first base-
man or the losing short-
stop? No, obviously the
only one losing that day
was the pitcher. Unfortu-
nate choice of words.
These are young girls,
children who need an ego
boost every chance they
get. They do not need to
read in the paper or have
their friends read in the
paper that they were the
losing anything. I just feel
there is a better way to re-
port the story.
I am sure Mr. Bugg is a
wonderful reporter who is
just trying to record the
facts and I don't know if
this would bother anybody
else, but as a loving grand-
mother, this story did not
sit well with me or the rest
of my family. Please, Mr.
Bugg, reconsider your
choice of words when it
references our youngsters.

mation, your facts were to-

My memorable
Dinkins story
It was Easter weekend
in the early 1980s. Our
family, along with two
other families, was build-
ing weekend homes in Rio
Vista.
Our two daughters were
in their early teens at that
time. A father from one of
the other families went to
Dinkins and came back
with baby chicks for all the
children. Well ...we were
really shocked! What are
we going to do with these
chicks in the city? So we
took them back to Dinkins
and asked if he could do-
nate them back and they
graciously accepted and
we were all relieved.

A helping hand
While loading groceries
in the Save-A-Lot parking
lot last Thursday an
unidentified gentleman
approached and spoke to
one of our volunteers. Not
only did he help load the
groceries, but he also
made a monetary donation
to our organization The
St. John the Baptist Help-


ing Hands Food Pantry.
Since we are unable to
send a thank you note, the
volunteers and especially
our clients, would like to
publicly acknowledge and
thank this gentlemen. With
so many bad things hap-
pening in the world today,
I thought your readers
would like to read about a
refreshing bit of good

Our last couple of trips
on the river reveals more
trash than we've seen in
our 11 years here in Dun-
nellon. Litter and trash
can be found on surround-
ing roads and throughout
our community. It's time to
create more partnerships
to maintain our commu-
nity and rivers.
There are numerous
contributors to the trash
that is being left behind
for others to deal with.
Until more individuals
begin to take personal re-
sponsibility for them-
selves and stop littering:
We need more frequent
clean-ups, and more part-
ners in the effort. It can no
longer be just a Rainbow
River Conservation an-
nual river clean-up effort,
but a concerted effort by
more groups, more often.
We need adults to set


the example, and teach
their children to take per-
sonal responsibility and
stop being "litter bugs"
and take pride in their
surroundings.
We need local participa-
tion, by the city of Dunnel-
lon and Chamber of
Commerce to become a
working partner to pro-
mote active efforts to
eliminate littering in our
community and on our
rivers.
The county/city park
tuber take-out area in
Dunnellon is a disgrace!
We need the county,
through Lee Niblock and
KP Hole to participate
and take responsibility for
their customers using this
pubic facility. The same
goes for Joseph Smythe
and Rainbow Springs
State Park and their com-
mercial tuber business.
We need the School
Board, Bobby James, and
the local schools and the
Boys and Girls Club, to not
only participate in clean-
up efforts, but to educate
on keeping our environ-
ment clean for ourselves
and others to come.
Individual effort is no
longer enough to elimi-
nate trash and litter in our
community. However, ac-
tive partners working in
concert can make a huge
difference. Let's do it!

For organizers of one
longtime event, there's
reason to be jazzed up
and for good reason.
Martha Vaughn, chair-
woman of Jazz Up Dun-
nellon, recently got
approval from the
Dunnellon City
Council for open
container per-
mits with con-
tingencies for
the 11th annual
event scheduled
for Saturday, Oct.
16. Mai
With safety in Vau
mind, the city Jaz
council asked Dunr
Vaughn to secure chair
enough road sig-
nage to lower the speed
limit along East Pennsyl-
vania Avenue during the
nighttime event. How-
ever, Vaughn must have
all of the signage submit-
ted to the city by Oct. 1 or
the permits will be re-
voked.
Vaughn said she thor-
oughly understands the
council's position, which
is why event organizers
had already approached
the Florida Bureau of Al-
cohol, Beverages and To-
bacco before seeking the
council's OK on waiving
the city ordinance.
"We've had to look at
safety a way we've never
had to before," Vaughn
said. "We've had to do a
little bit more."
In addition to the
slower speeds along East


Pennsylvania, organizers
are planning on putting
up safety netting to pre-
vent event goers from
running into the street.
West Pennsylvania will
be closed to through traf-
fic during the event.
There will be a driving
service available if any-
one needs it, as
well as manned
parking lots.
There will be
crossing guards
placed at U.S. 41.
Only chamber-
approved cups
will be used for
tha alcoholic bever-
ghn ages on the
Up streets during the
ellon event, and
oman. Vaughn said a vol-
unteer staff will
be monitoring and en-
forcing the rules.
Vaughn informed the
council that ABT will
train event volunteers on
how to properly card
people and enforce regu-
lations.
The event is not just
for adults though.
Vaughn said a kid
friendly zone will be set
up at Ernie Mills Park in
which the sale of alco-
holic beverages will not
be allowed.
Currently, Vaughn is in
the process of collecting
road signage, rounding
up volunteers and spon-
sors and trying to book
bands. She said if anyone
is interested in helping
out, she can be reached
at 489-2233.

current health insurance
plan would expire.
"It's not any fault of
your own," said William
Taylor of Combined In-
surances Inc. of Ocala.
"The city of Ocala
forced you into this by
uninviting you from
their plan."
Taylor, who serves as
the agent for the city's
health insurance cover-
age with Ocala and
Belleview, assisted city
officials in obtaining and
reviewing bids from the
two companies willing to
insure the city. Those
two companies, Blue
Cross and Blue Shield
and United Health Care,
classified Dunnellon as a
small group because it
has fewer than 50 em-
ployees.
"Insurance compa-
nies aren't giving us
much to work with,"
Bowne told council
members.
Added Taylor: "We're
pretty much limited be-
cause of the size of the
group."
Staff recommended to
council to select the bid
from United Health,
which came in at
$456.65 per month, per
employee. In the city's
current plan, the city
pays $301.91 per month
for its employees'
health insurance cover-
age.
"We know this will
have a huge impact and
affect employees,"
Bowne said.
Selecting a plan,
though, must happen
before the new budget
is in place, because
staff must educate em-
ployees about new ben-
efits and register them
in the plan before the
end of any open enroll-
ment period.
"If this is the best op-
tion, then council will
make a decision,"
Mayor Fred Ward said.
"It is what it is."
Taylor told council
and staff it will likely
have to review its cov-
erage again next year
because of the constant
changes in the health
insurance industry and
the move toward health
care reform in 2014.
Taylor noted the city of


Ocala switched to a par-
tially insured plan.
"They couldn't have
picked a worse year to
do it," Taylor said, not-
ing the constant
changes in the industry
because of the impend-
ing health care reform.
The city will continue
offering its employees
supplemental polices
such as vision, dental
and life insurance.
Staff recommended
switching to The Stan-
dard for its dental plan,
saving the city $2,376
annually. 20/20 Eyecare,
the city's current
provider told Taylor it
would continue to offer
the city the same serv-
ice for the same price it
pays now.
As far as life insur-
ance, while there is one
noticeable change, the
city will likely switch to
The Standard, saving
$7,156.56 per year. The
city will offer supple-
mental life insurance,
but to do so, the city
must have 10 people
sign up for it. If 10 peo-
ple do not register, the
city cannot offer it.
The city council will
vote on the health in-
surance issue at a spe-
cial meeting 2:30 p.m.
Monday at City Hall.
Also, the council will
take action on a munic-
ipal election agreement
for services, an inter-
local agreement with
Marion County for Fire
Rescue dispatching
services and shared use
of the county radio sys-
tem and the city man-
ager evaluation by the
council.
If the council ap-
proves the interlocal
agreement for use of
the county radio sys-
tem, it would give the
county the right to put
an antenna on the city's
water tower, in ex-
change for that, the city
would no longer have to
pay $13,000 for the cost
to use the current sys-
tem. The county would
maintain the system as
part of the agreement
and pay for any repairs.
Following the special
meeting, the city coun-
cil will host its first
budget workshop for
the 2011 fiscal year.

Joe Ford checks the spot where a bolt of lightning struck the First Assembly of God's roof. The strike de-
stroyed the church's steeple and electrical equipment inside.


Lightning strike causes minor damage


JEFF BRYAN
Riverland News
Strong thunderstorms
that rolled through the
area Aug. 17, left one
local church with minor
damage, but thankful the
damage wasn't more se-
vere.
A lightning strike hit
the ridge vent and ran
through both ends,
jumping and setting the
steeple on fire and dam-
aging electrical equip-
ment inside, at the First
Assembly of God at 2872
W Dunnellon Road.
"I live a mile away and


I heard it," said Carol
Sayers, the pastor's sec-
retary.
There was minor dam-
age to the roof and the
church's fire alarm sys-
tem. All told, said the
Rev. Joseph Vosberg, he
estimates the damage at
around $15,000.
"It could be less, it
could be more," said
Vosberg, who is entering
his 15th year as the pas-
tor at First Assembly.
"We just feel blessed
that it wasn't worse, be-
cause it could've been
worse.
"We'll let the profes-


sional guys come in and
figure out what the total
damage is."
The lightning strike
happened shortly before
midnight, Vosberg said,
and a passerby on
County Road 488 saw the
flames coming from the
steeple. The fire depart-
ment arrived on scene
within minutes and kept
the damage in check,
while the alarm com-
pany notified Vosberg.
While the fire did not
destroy the roof or make
its way inside, the light-
ning did cause problems
with the churches sound


system and five of the
seven LCD television
screens.
"The amps got blown
out," Vosberg said.
Vosberg is counting his
blessings, despite the
setback. No one was in-
jured, it didn't happen
when there was a serv-
ice or other activities
and the building is still
standing, Vosberg added
about the facility that is
a little more than a year
old. The steeple was
placed on the roof the
last Sunday of May 2009.

YOUR DENTAL
HEALTH









byM. E Hampton, D.D.S.
STRINGING ALONG
The reason that dentists
insist that their patients floss
(as well as brush) their teeth is
because flossing does nearly
half the work necessary to
remove "plaque." Unless this
sticky bacteria-laden substance
is removed from between
teeth, where toothbrush bristles
may not reach, tooth decay and
gum disease will result.
Patients with receding gums or
large spaces between their
teeth are advised to use a flat,
wide dental tape. If teeth are
closely spaced, thin floss is
best, especially non-shredding
floss. Patients with bridges and
braces are likely to find it
necessary to use a floss
threader to get underneath
restorations or wires between
teeth. There is also floss with a
stiff end that does the job
equally well.
By brushing and flossing
we help to eliminate the
bacteria, which can lead to bad
breath, gingivitis, and
periodontal disease thus
creating smiles which last a
lifetime. Always feel free to
discuss your dental concerns
with us at the office of
MARK E. HAMPTON,
D.D.S.. We're located at
11902 Illinois Street, where
we practice an unparalleled
level of dentistry. You can trust
the health of your teeth to our
extensive training and
experience. Our concern is
your comfort and confidence -
our goal is to help you
preserve your natural teeth for
a lifetime. Please call

State park offers


'environmental volunteering'


One of the many
areas of volunteer-
ing at Rainbow
Springs State Park can
be referred to as "envi-
ronmental volunteer-
ing." This
includes a wide
range of activi-
ties at the park.
It could include
removal of ex-
otics plants
not native to
Florida
restoration of
native vegeta- Shar
tion or the ob- Hust
servation and
keeping track of
wildlife. Taking visitors
on a trail walk offers a
volunteer the time to ed-
ucate themselves and
others to the natural en-
vironment found here.
The headsprings of the
Rainbow River, one of
Florida's largest springs,
originates in the 1,472-
acre park. Nature trails
are found throughout the
park, including the
park's campground. Gar-
den areas and the water-
falls are cultural assets
that remain from the
days when the head-
springs were a private at-


(
(


traction. Many of the gar-
den areas have been re-
planted to preserve their
historical significance.
All of the areas maintain
there beauty through the
efforts of volun-
teers, volunteer
committees and
park rangers. In an
area the size of
Rainbow Springs
State Park, there is
never a time when
volunteer help is
not needed. Help
on is needed through-
on out the year in
all seasons.
Wildlife is abun-
dant in the park. The
river supports many
species of turtles and
fish, otters, alligators
and a huge variety of
water birds. Animals you
are likely to see include
the endangered gopher
tortoise, Sherman's fox
squirrel and whitetail
deer. The smaller ani-
mals and birds often
hide in the lush vegeta-
tion. While you are
watching for them -
they may be watching
you! The species of birds
found at the park are too
numerous to list but in-


clude osprey, hawks,
swallowtail kits, wild
turkey, mocking birds,
humming birds and owls.
Imagine what you could
learn and share with oth-
ers during your time vol-
unteering.
There are so many op-
portunities to volunteer
that everyone has a
place in the program.
Consider making a per-
sonal contribution of
yourself your time,
your knowledge, and
your skills to this
award-winning park that
offers joy to nearly
200,000 visitors each
year.

Rie


for the


picking


MICHEL NORTHSEA
Staff Writer
Making wine is a
hobby of George Kauf-
mann, so is growing the
grapes for his wine.
Throughout the years
the types of grape he
grows has changed be-
cause of environmental
conditions.
He first planted grapes
on his property on
County Road 484 in 1985
when he decided he
should take advantage of
the land he owned.
"I used to brew my
own beer and then I
started making wine
from concentrate. I fig-
ured I should use the
land I owned, so I
planted a vineyard," he
said.
All the grapes in that
original vineyard were
"bunch grapes" in-
cluding flame, conquis-
tador and seedless
varieties.
Four years of drought
in the early 1990s
stressed the original
vineyard. The drought
was also rough on Kauf-
mann's well and it
dropped 13 feet during
those years.
"I couldn't irrigate the
grapes if I wanted water
in the house," he said.
Two late frosts in April
2000 wiped out all but 10
vines. Those late frost
were especially damag-
ing because bunch
grapes bud in March.
In those early days,
Kaufmann used to sell
his grapes to wineries
within the state.
Wanting to replant his
vineyard, Kaufmann
started looking for a few
hardy varieties of grapes
to grow. Working with
the University of
Florida, Institute of
Food and Science, he de-
cided on four varieties
of Muscadine grapes -
Florida Fry, Triumph,
Southern Home and
Alachua.
The Alachua variety is
similar to the Concord
grape and is good for
making jelly. The South-
ern Home variety makes
wine similar to a bur-
gundy, Kaufmann said.
He ended up putting
in around 400 plants and
they produce about 150
pounds of grapes now. A
Muscadine grape vine
matures in about three
years and starts produc-
ing at its highest level
around six years.
But his vineyard of
Muscadine grapes does-
n't produce enough fruit
to sell to wineries, so for
several weeks each year
he opens his field for
picking to the public.


This year he doesn't ex-
pect his crop to last till
the end of August.
Once he opens the
field to the public, Kauf-
mann figures there is
about two weeks, some-
times three, when there
are enough grapes to
pick and the birds
haven't found them.
Muscadine grapes
each ripen individually
not by the bunches as
with grapes in the origi-
nal vineyard. Ripening
individually means that
one area can be picked
at different times and
days later the same area
is ready for picking
again. Typically all the
grapes on a vine will
ripen within three
weeks.
Last week, a couple
from Belleview were
picking, and eating a few
of the grapes. Each year
they come to get about 20
pound of grapes. They
say the grapes are deli-
cious when eaten nice
and cold straight from
the refrigerator. In the
refrigerator, the grapes
will keep upwards to two
weeks.
The grapes can also be
frozen but they do break
down some when they
are thawed, Kaufmann
cautioned
"There good for mak-
ing wine once they been
frozen because they
have more juice," he
said.
Kaufmann doesn't sell
his wine and says it is
even illegal for him to
give it away, but he does
make some for his per-
sonal use.
In the growing of the
muscadines, Kaufmann
has found he rarely
needs to use pesticides
but he does fertilize
three times a year,
March, June and Sep-
tember.
Kaufmann and his


George Kaufmann holds back some leaves to show the cluster of grapes ready for the picking at his vine-
yards on County Road 484.


wife, Patricia, pur-
chased their property in
1967 knowing that one
day they would make the
Dunnellon area their
permanent home.
While raising a family
in the Miami area, they
had enjoyed camping in
the Ocala National For-
est at Alexander Springs
and later Silver Glenn.
A vacation trip the
North Carolina lead
Kaufmann to another
hobby he enjoys.
Taking advantage of
the opportunity to
"mine" for gems on vaca-
tion, Kaufmann found a
few gems in the rough.
He learned to cut those
stones into gems after
buying the necessary
equipment. He even
does some gem repairs.
"My hobbies keep me
off the streets at night,"
he jokes.

The fourth annual Horizon of Hope Luncheon on
Aug. 14 featured a live auction. Pictured, from right,
are: Jim Payton, auctioneer; Joy Price of Farm
Credit; and Sherry Roberts and Leslie Thorne, who
assisted with the luncheon. The auction is one of
several ways the group raises funds in the fight
against breast cancer. The group was able to raise
almost $2,800, half of which was donated to the
Michelle-O-Gram, to fight for a cure. This year's
keynote speaker was author Kathleen O'Keefe
Kanavos, a two-time breast cancer survivor. The
group hopes to have Kanavos back at next year's
luncheon to sign her new book, which should be re-
leased prior to the event.

Board adopts ordinance to address maintenance of foreclosed homes


Special to Riverland News
In a unanimous vote,
Marion County Commis-
sioners adopted a new or-
dinance that will allow
the Marion County Code
Enforcement division to
monitor properties in
foreclosure and ensure
that those properties are
properly maintained.
The board directed staff
to develop the ordinance,
after several citizens ex-
pressed concerns about
their property values and
quality of life. The citi-


zens said that abandoned,
foreclosed homes in their
neighborhoods were invit-
ing squatters and crime.
They also said unmain-
tained yards and pools
were attracting vermin
(e.g. rats and snakes) and
creating other public
health and safety hazards.
Though commissioners
acknowledged that the or-
dinance was not perfect
and some commissioners
wanted it to have "more
teeth," they said it was a
step in the right direction.
The new ordinance re-


quires the following:
Mortgagees (e.g.
banks, other financial in-
stitutions or property
management companies)
must register the fore-
closed property with the
Marion County Code En-
forcement division within
10 days once the property
is considered vacant. If
the property is not yet
deemed vacant, the mort-
gagee must inspect the
property once a month.
The registration fee for
the responsible party is
$100 per property.


As part of the regis-
tration process, the mort-
gagee must provide the
Marion County Code En-
forcement division all rel-
evant contact
information. This will
allow code officers to
quickly notify the respon-
sible party if the fore-
closed property is not
properly maintained.
Until the foreclosure
is resolved, mortgagees or
owners are required to
maintain the property by
keeping the yard mowed,
the bushes trimmed and


the area clear of debris
and litter. They are also
required to secure the
property and maintain
pools and spas.
Marion County Code
Enforcement officers will
proactively inspect the
foreclosed properties on
the registration list. If the
mortgagees or owners
have not maintained the
property, they will receive
a "Notice of Violation" and
will appear before the
Marion County Code En-
forcement Board. That
board can then fine the


mortgagee or owner.
Prior to the ordinance,
Marion County Code En-
forcement officers would
have to wait until the
foreclosure was com-
pletely resolved before
requiring the mortgagee
to maintain the property.
That process could take
months, even years. Other
communities, including
the City of Ocala, have im-
plemented similar ordi-
nances with great success.
The ordinance will sunset
in 2013.

Making This Right


"4


I was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have
to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen,
hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.

No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the
beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup
in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed.

Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet.
We have been working with impacted communities since day one.

Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is
to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have
19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping.

Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and
restaurant owners, helping to make them whole.

More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have
already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a
$20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost
incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.

BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism
recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches.

Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams
will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.

And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific
experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.

Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support
over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We
know we haven't always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil
is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do
everything we can to make this right.
