WHATS HAPPENING Greenlight launch date uncertain Delayed in its launch date, city officials now say they are uncertain when Greenlight Dunnellon Communications will be up and running, because they have been unable to secure a firm delivery date for the much-needed fiber to operate the system. City Manager Lisa Algiere expressed frustration about not being able to obtain a specific date. We are desperately looking for fiber wherever we can find it, she explained after Mondays City Council meeting, which officials approved purchase requests totaling $234,378.15 for the fiber to the home program officials launched in November after securing $7.3 million in bonds from Regions Bank in Orlando. Were contacting everyone we can think of, other cities, other companies. It even came up in a meeting to contact Kennedy Space Center. The most critical connection, Algiere said, is the Level 3 run, an 8-mile stretch from the city to Holder where Greenlight will hook up with the Cloud, an Internet data provider. Six miles of the stretch runs along U.S. 41 South through Citrus County is underground. Once we get the fiber, itll only take one to two weeks to install it, Algiere Officials unable to secure firm delivery date of fiber JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Lisa Algiere, city manager: City desperately looking for fiber. Dunnellon school teacher dies at 29 Cause of death unknown Dunnellon Middle School staff is mourning the loss of one of its own. Shara Ponder, who taught Reading Remediation for the past four years at the school and was the Rookie Teacher of the Year in 2009-10 for the Marion County School District, died Monday at the age of 29, two months shy of her 30th birthday. The cause of death had not been released at press time. She was just so well respected by her teachers and the students, Principal Jane Ashman said. She was always willing to help any child and any adult. She was just a wonderful family member. Thats what we are over there, a family Its hard to lose a family member. A product of the Marion County School System, Ponder graduated from Vanguard High School in 2000. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in political science from Florida A&M University. She began her teaching career at Dunnellon Middle School in 2007. Erika Wiggins, a fellow teacher, whose classroom was next door to Ponders recalled her colleagues enthusiasm for the profession. Her enthusiasm and passion for teaching reminded us on a daily basis why we all decided to become teachers in the first place, Wiggins said.

Shettleroe, a 20-year employee with the City of Dunnellon and Dunnellon Police Department, died Wednesday, July 6, from her three-plus-month battle with lung cancer. Shettleroe was 51. Loyal, dedicated, fabulous cook and a great sense of humor. Those were the words friends used to describe the loss of Lori Shettleroe, a 20-year employee with the City of Dunnellon and Dunnellon Police Department who lost her three-month fight with lung cancer Wednesday, July 6. Shettleroe, a mother of two and grandmother to three, was 51. But to those who really knew Shettleroe knew her one weakness. She was a fabulous cook, but she couldnt bake, said her daughter, Nicole Gilley. She burned the simplest things. My mom could cook like no ones business, but she just couldnt bake. It was kind of funny. There was also her prized possession her children, Gilley and Justin Shettleroe, and grandchildren, Michael, 6, Mackenzie, 4, and Addison, 3. She was there when I delivered my two children. She was able to be in the delivery room when they were born. Ill never forget, Gilley recalled of the birth of her two children, Michael and Mackenzie. She was there when I graduated, when I got married. She shared in all of important milestones. Gilley said her children were holding up well. Im not sure that theyve actually grasped that they cannot go see her anymore, she said, attempting to keep her composure. At Saturdays Celebration of Life at the American Legion Post 58, family, friends and coworkers gathered to pay their respects. Her brother, Dennis Jones, recalled their time spent debating whose grandchildren were the brightest and best. She was shameless about her grandchildren, the oldest of the six siblings said. Ill miss those conversations with her. From the turnout, he noted the impact she had on others throughout her life, but he encouraged her family and friends to be happy for her. Lori is far healthier, stronger and happier where shes at now, Jones said. Isnt that what we would want for her? Her humor stood out to others. She was so darn funny, said Police Chief JEFF BRYAN Riverland News JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See TEACHER page 3 Shara Ponder had taught at DMS for past 4 years.

For youths making the trek to the Dunnellon Public Library this summer, their journey has taken them farther than most could imagine, Theyve been to Europe, Australia, Africa, throughout the United States and, most recently, to Japan. Its all been a part of the Marion County Library Systems One World, Many Stories, summer program. Its part of an effort to not only entertain the children, but keep them coming to the library throughout the summer break. In a way, its done to help prevent the summer slide, said Barbara Hernando, county spokeswoman. They might be at risk of losing valuable growth; it encourages them to go to the library, gives them some summer fun. Indeed it has. Whats very interesting, every year they have a different theme, Hernandez explained, mentioning this years theme One World, Many Stories. They are exposed to cultures around the world, about the things other countries do. I think its an all-around program we have all over the county, not limited to certain branches. This summers program at the Dunnellon branch runs through the end of July. The remaining events include school-age story time at 11 a.m. Wednesdays, July 20 and July 27, as well as a performance from Tony the Balloon Guy at 2 p.m. Thursday, July 21. According to a news release from Marion County, Tony takes the audience on a trip around the world. Also, at 3 p.m. Monday, July 25, Jewelry Creations with Clovis will allow youngsters to style up! by learning the basic techniques of making beaded jewelry and creating something of your very own. So far this summer, children have been treated to shows featuring Ninth Dimension and the Tampa Taiko group. Catering to children is not all the library is doing this summer. Officials will host its final Friday Movie Matinee for those 13 and older at 1 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5. In addition to that, a computer assistance class will be available at 11 a.m. Aug. 22.

Ron Collins was the one-man band and representative for the group. He played multiple drums constructed of cow hide and recycled wine barrels and a flutelike instrument called a Sakahatchee made of bamboo. Aside from rock and roll, Taiko music ROCKS more than anything else in the whole world, Collins explained, as he actively engaged children and their parents by pulling a few dads out of the audience and allowing them to play alongside him, and later allowing every child to have a turn on the drums. In Japan, the Taiko Drums were used to celebrate the harvest, drive away pests, and to coordinate troop movements, Collins said.

Dunnellon Fire Rescue responded to a structure fire Thursday, June 30, at 20785 W. Pennsylvania Ave. According to Fire Chief Joe Campfield, his department, with the assistance of Marion County Fire Rescue, extinguished the fire. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, Campfield said, noting most of the damage to the home was from smoke damage. Campfield indicated the damage to the house was between $20,000 and $50,000. There was significant damage to the center walls that adjoins the wall with the living room and the bathroom, he said. We had to cut it out to make it to the fire. No one was injured in the fire, Campfield said. Fortunately, the family woke up, smelled smoke and got out, he said. Her students always came first and they trusted her completely. You know if a teenager trusts and really listens to a teachers advice and/or opinion they have to be special. Students took to Ponders fan page on Facebook on Monday after hearing about the death of their teacher. Wiggins took notice, too. There are so many posts from students from previous years, she said. No matter what school competition we had, Ponders Homeroom would, the majority of the time, win whether it was for the canned food drive, United Way fundraising, Red Ribbon Week or any other competition. She encouraged her students so much they raised the most. Wiggins noted Ponders part-time job at Kmart. I always told her it was to support her shopping habit, which was pretty much buying things for her classroom, Wiggins said Students that had never read an entire book ended up reading at least one a month just so they would be able to get a ticket for a drawing for some basket she created as an incentive. I would have to say she has been the spirit of our DMS family. Her charisma, sense of humor, she could find something funny in just about any situation, and her tell it like it is personality was refreshing and made DMS a fun place for students as well as teachers. Her family, friends and students were her entire world and she would do anything for anybody. I feel blessed that I had the chance to have her as a friend. Beth Wood, a teacher at Dunnellon Middle School, said theres not a student or teacher who isnt crushed by the news of Ponders death. Shara was funny, bighearted, and always doing really great things with her students, Wood said noting Ponders sixth-grade homeroom crushed the competition in the DMS Silver Wars, a fundraiser for United Way. Carol Savage, executive director of Public Education Foundation for the school district, taught Ponders brother and has been friends with the family for the past 17 years. Ponder also served as a teachers assistant for Savage during high school. She was very enthusiastic about the activities she was involved with, Savage said. She just embraced teaching, she loved her students. She always was thinking of new ways to get them to read. She just had a real energy about teaching. She was just very, very energetic. She was always the optimist. She was very bubbly, pleasant to be around. She was a very sharp young lady. Anytime you lose a teacher, its a blow to the system, particularly when you lose one who is so passionate. She really influenced students from all that I could see. Its a loss for those students and the system. She is the kind of teacher, if you had kids in the school system, you wanted your children to be around. She was a good kid. Current and former students were devastated by the news. Dante White called Ponder one of his favorite teachers. I cant believe it happened, he said. She was so young. Im going to miss her so much. She knows there will always be a spot on Team Dante for her. I love you and I wont forget you Ms. Ponder. Miss Ponder you are the best teacher any of us ever knew, Cody Colburn said. We will miss you forever. Miss Ponder may your soul live happy in heaven. We will always remember you in our minds and hearts. There will be a wake service at 6:30 p.m. Friday at Mount Moriah Baptist Church, 55 S.W. Third Ave., Ocala. The funeral service will be at 3 p.m. Saturday at the House of God on 2730 N.W. 27th Ave., Ocala, near Pine Oaks Golf Course. Summers Funeral Home in charge of arraingments.

Answers to Sudoku on page 6 said. Once we have (the fiber), we can be connected to the Internet. Officials had hoped to launch Greenlight Communications in the early spring, but Algiere explained the July launch date was the more realistic of the two. Burton & Associates will prepare a rate study for Greenlight Communications to determine the pricing structure for its services. The Counicl agreed to pay the firm $34,855 for the study, which Algiere said could take up to four weeks to complete. Among another problem city officials ran into was acquiring pole attachment agreements with Progress Energy. However, as part of the expenditures the council approved Monday, the city will pay the power company $105,000 to survey 1,400 poles. According to the purchase agreement, the funds will cover engineering costs to determine if fiber can be attached to Progress Energys utility poles. If the pole cannot withstand the additional load, the city would be required to pay for a new pole if it chooses to attach the fiber to it. Eddie Esch, assistant city public works director, said cost of a new pole or going underground would factor into the decision. City officials also agreed to spend $75,208.15 with Graybar for pole attachment hardware and fittings. According to the purchase request, the hardware and fittings are required for attaching the ADSS overhead fiber optic cable to the power poles Council members questioned whether spending the additional $105,000 would be better suited to go toward the overall cost of going completely underground with the system. Were trying to keep overheard where we can, Esch said. Until we get the report and sit down and analyze it, we cant say for sure what the better option is. Were looking at every penny we can save at this point. We have to analyze it one little piece at a time. Well do it in the most effective and efficient manner we can. The city originally struck a deal with Motorola for a head end system, but was required to secure a system because Motorola could not guarantee delivery of the product. The city was relegated to finding another provider for the equipment, costing $1.3 million over a five-year period. Since launching Greenlight Dunnellon Communications, the city has committed to spending more than $4 million of the $7.3 million bond funding it obtained through Regions Bank of Orlando. The financing for the fiber to the home program is set in three bonds: the Series A bond for 20 years with an interest rate of 3.61 percent; the Series B bond for 5 years with an interest rate of 3.20 percent; and the Series C bond must be repaid in one year. Paperwork for the bonds was completed Nov. 18, 2010. The city must also make a payment for the Series A and B bonds in November of this year when the Series C bond payment is due in full by Nov. 18.

River views What does 14th Amendment really tell us?The news media has been full of chatter lately about the right of a child born in this country to U.S. citizenship regardless of the nationality of the parents. They claim that this guaranteed by the 14th Amendment to our constitution. The 14th Amendment was passed in the mid 1860s. Its main purpose was to give citizenship to the slaves freed by the Civil War. But now folks claim that it applies to everyone born here. So I have a question? Where was the American Indian born? Under this amendment, should they have not gotten automatic citizenship? Yet, they did not get citizenship until about 1918 when the Congress of the U.S. granted it to them. So where were they born? Or can it be argued that the 14th Amendment does not grant automatic citizenship to all who are born here regardless of nationality? Richard P. Mack Dunnellon Thank you for the Celebration of Life for Lori ShettleroeThe Dunnellon Police Department lost one of its own on July 6, 2011, when Lori Shettleroe lost her courageous battle against lung cancer. On Saturday, July 9, a celebration of her life was held at the American Legion Post No. 58 in Dunnellon. I appreciate the hospitality and use of their facility. It truly was a great place to have this special event. Lori had spent numerous times in that hall over the years volunteering for different community events or attending the Officer of the Year awards ceremony with me. Family and friends were encouraged to take a trip down memory lane and walk through Loris journey of her life and her 20-plus years as an employee of the city of Dunnellon with photos and other memorabilia of her different positions held within the city as well as the loves of her life, her children and grandchildren. I would like to sincerely thank everyone who showed their support of Loris battle with their visits, phone calls, prayers, best wishes on our face book page, friends and fellow officers having their heads shaved in support of her battle and Loris Caringbridge webpage. The Dunnellon Florist did a beautiful job with the floral arrangements in honor of Lori. They made sure Loris favorite things were represented in each arrangement. Martha Vaughn also assisted with the set up of the venue and helped throughout the day, doing whatever we needed so we could spend more time with the family. The room was arranged so that Loris family was in the very middle and all of the tables surrounded them as a token of how we take care of our Corporate business needs lesson in customer service Its a crying shame D isgusted! Angry! Shocked and disappointed! Thats how I felt when the verdict was read. I still feel that way. How? Can someone please tell me how the jurors came up with a not guilty verdict? I dont understand. First O.J., now Casey. What is this world coming too? Did the jurors have their heads in the sand for the past three years? Didnt they hear the jailhouse tapes? Not once does she ask have they found Caylee? or are they looking for her? She didnt bother to ask because she already knew Caylee was dead. I am so disgusted with this trial. Miss Picklepuss is free. That is what my mom calls her. Caylee, I am so sorry our justice system failed you. It is disgraceful. I hope her parents disown her. Watching her father being tossed in the mud and stomped on was so painful. All he ever did was love his daughter and granddaughter. In return, he was painted as a monster. I understand Cindy Anthony lying to save her daughters life. I dont agree with it, but I can understand why she lied. Like mother, like daughter! I couldnt imagine what it would be like to lose a granddaughter and then a daughter to lethal injection. It is all so sad. Poor Caylee. Sweet and innocent Caylee. You didnt deserve to die and you certainly didnt deserve to get shafted by the jury. It is all so tragic. In my opinion, you had to die because your selfish irresponsible mother had to party. Lucky for Casey, there are 12 people who disagree with that statement. I would like to ask the jury if they dont think Casey did it, whom do they think murdered Caylee? Maybe it was the same guy that murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Boy, I sure hope they catch that guy! I am sure O.J. wouldnt mind if Casey tagged along when he goes looking for the killer of his loved one. I bet he is out there scouting the streets for clues with her Sherlock Holmes hat on. Whoever said crime doesnt pay didnt live in the modern world. Now Casey will get big bucks from some tabloid or news station to tell more lies. Lifetime will have a Casey Anthony movie out in no time. Its deplorable. All the talking heads and TV stations got paid big bucks for their big ratings. The jury will become less shy when they get offered enough money. Everyone wins! Hear that Caylee? Everybody won when you died. Pathetic vultures. It is going to take decades for that family to heal. Who knows if it is even possible? Georges alleged affair didnt help. Is it still considered alleged when only one party admits to it under oath? Caseys brother, Lee, seems to be the only one who felt she was guilty from The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

Although concerns are raised about the African Honey Bee, we need to help promote the regular domestic European honey Bee. African Honey Bees are smaller than the domestic bee. Although the sting from one is no more venomous than a single European bee sting, the big difference is the behavior. African bees are very territorial, defending the nest and producing larger numbers of offspring. Best defense is to avoid all bee contact. Never kick or clamber on a fallen tree stump, as this is a favorite habitat. If rolling a rock look and check to make sure you have no bees entering and leaving the area. The Department of Agriculture advises that when hiking, make sure you have a route and look, listen and run if in doubt. Covering your head and face is important if stinging bees attack. Do not stand still, run in a straight line and try and get to shelter. If you get inside a car, the bees that get in will usually go to the light at the windows as they get disorientated. One step is to remove potential nesting sites by plugging holes in walls and check eaves of buildings regularly. Birdhouses can make good nesting sites, so keep an eye on ones in your garden. Chimneys are another favorite, as is outside air conditioning units. If you have an attic, watch to see if there is activity going in and out of the roof area. Bait traps are placed in areas by agriculture inspectors to keep track of finds and movements. African Bees are generally defending their territory rather than trying to attack you. All said and done we need Honey Bees. The Honeybee helps crop growth of the food we eat. Encouraging domestic European bees will help to prevent African bees establishing in an area. The local extension offices have good contacts for beekeepers in the areas. If in doubt ask! Make a nectar-rich container display for pollinators. You can create a wildlife corner in even the smallest garden, and it doesnt have to be a patch of un-mown grass or a scrambling scrub thicket. A single, large container will suffice, containing plants to attract bees, butterflies, hoverflies and other insects. The display will provide shelter for insects to roost or hibernate, food plants for various caterpillars and sources of nectar for pollinating insects. Sit the pot in position, and then place a layer of yogurt pots or crocks to aid drainage. Partfill with compost. Add the plants, placing the taller ones at the back and the lower growing species at the front. Top up with compost and water well. To make the two bee hotels, drill several deep, 5 to 8 millimeter-wide holes into a 15 to 20 centimeter-long log and fill an off-cut of drainpipe with lengths of bamboo. Place among the plants. Plants that will be adored by bees and pollinators are salvias, nepetas, geraniums, lavenders and polemonium. Tracy Jenner, the Riverland Gardener, can be reached at tracyjenner@aol.com. Use your garden to create a buzz C orporate America stinks. No, let me rephrase that, it flat out sucks. There used to be a time in this country when products or the stores that sold them stood behind said products. If it had a warranty and said product went bad said store simply replaced it no questions asked. Case in point, I bought a car battery for my wifes vehicle less than a year ago and it recently went kaput ... So I took it to the retailer, which I purchased it from. The employee, cursing the fact he lacked the proper tools to remove the battery in a quick efficient manner, tells me the battery isnt getting a reading. Great, this wont take long I say to myself already behind on my schedule missing a birthday party for a friends daughter. We have to recharge it for 35 minutes employee No. 1 tells me. What? I question in a dumfounded manner. Its our company policy, he explains. So what happens if it doesnt work? I ask. Oh, then we will replace it, he tells me. So now I have to find something to occupy my time for 30plus minutes, I mumble under my breath. Yep, the employee gleefully explains. I considered offering a few solutions to resolve the problem in a much quicker and efficient manner more to my liking. Pausing to reflect on those solutions, I realized most resulted in a ride in the back of a police cruiser with the cops asking, Whyd you do it son? OK, so lets discount the fact most of the law enforcement officers I know are younger than me. So I sat and waited, twiddled my thumbs and waited some more. Finally, after an hour wait, I approached the employee to see what the delay was. Oh, were sorry, we forgot about you, employee No. 2 says. So we make our way to the battery recharger station, the employee opens the door to the vault. The employee begins fiddling with wires, pokes her head around the corner and shouts to employee No. 1: Hey, did you turn this on? The fuse to my Irish temper was already lit; now it was on full blown overload. I could envision how my father would handle such a situation. It wouldnt have ended well. On the flip side of the spectrum, I could hear the voice of my wife saying: Be NICE. I took a deep breath. Excuse me? I asked. Oh, its OK, they turned it on, employee No. 2 responds. They rattled off an explanation about the batterys volts, its amps and something else that sounded English, but was all a foreign language to me. Im not sure why the battery wasnt turning, but we need to check your alternator, employee No. 2 explains. I dont have time, I respond. Im running late for an appointment. Oh, you need to be somewhere else? the employee responds. I pause, deciding not to open my big mouth and respond: No, I generally enjoy hanging out in auto parts stores on a Saturday afternoon. Its a great way to kill time and learn about automotive repair through osmosis. Kathleen Wallace Jeff Bryan Editor Tracy Jenner See LETTERS page 5 See SMILE page 5 See LESSON page 5

The surrounding tables were filled with the Dunnellon Police Department, the City of Dunnellon, Superior bank employees and other friends Lori had made throughout the years. After the celebration, food and refreshments were provided by friends, Gruffs Tap and Grill, the city of Dunnellon, Dunnellon Police Department and the employees of Superior Bank. I appreciate the honor and dignity shown to our dear Lori by my officers who stood guard and watched over her throughout the service. Russ Hoffmeier, Dennis Jones, Loris brother, and Pastor Ed Anthony spoke on behalf of the family, providing joy, wisdom and closure for Loris passing. A special thanks to Dawn Bowne, Dunnellon City Clerk who was the spokesperson that spoke on behalf of the city and police department as well as introducing the speakers of the event. This was a difficult time for all and especially for Dawn as Lori and she had been friends for over 20 years. In closing, the Dunnellon community has again exceeded expectations in their continuous support for the family, the city employees and the police department. Lori was an outstanding employee, close friend, loving mother and grandmother who truly deserved a memorable farewell and this was so graciously accomplished. Thank you, Joanne M.

Within months of coming out, the online application was praised as one of the highest-rated online services around, and it has consistently remained so every year. Results from the American Customer Satisfaction Index show Social Securitys online Retirement Estimator in one of the top two spots, with a score of 90. (Social Securitys online benefit application took the top spot.) The Retirement Estimator ranks higher than the websites of any other public and private sector agencies and companies, including the likes of Netflix and Amazon. Millions of people have used the Retirement Estimator. You may try it yourself at www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator. Now that Social Securitys most popular online application is available in Spanish at www.segurosocial.gov/calculador, even more people can use the Retirement Estimator. The Retirement Estimator is a convenient, secure, and quick financial planning tool that lets workers calculate how much they might expect to receive in Social Security benefits when they retire. The attractive feature of this calculator is that it uses your earnings information on file at Social Security, without displaying your personal information. So, you get an instant, personalized estimate of your future retirement benefits. The Estimator even gives you the opportunity to run different scenarios and what if situations. For example, you can change the date you expect to retire or change expected future earnings to create and compare different retirement options. This can help you as you plan ahead. To use the Retirement Estimator, you must have enough Social Security credits to qualify for benefits and you cannot be currently receiving benefits. Experience the best online service now by visiting Social Securitys Retirement Estimator at www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator. Once youve sketched out your retirement plans, youll know where to go when the time comes to apply for benefits: online at www.socialsecurity.gov. S ocia l S ecurit y Q&A Question: When a person who has worked and paid Social Security taxes dies, who is eligible for survivors benefits? Answer: Social Security survivors benefits can be paid to: Widows or widowers full benefits at full retirement age, or reduced benefits as early as age 60; Disabled widows or widowers as early as age 50; Widows or widowers at any age if they take care of the deceaseds child who is under age 16 or disabled and receiving Social Security benefits; Unmarried children under 18, or up to age 19 if they are attending high school full time. Under certain circumstances, benefits can be paid to stepchildren, grandchildren, or adopted children; Children at any age who were disabled before age 22 and remain disabled; and Dependent parents age 62 or older. Even if you are divorced, you still may qualify for survivors benefits based on the earnings record of a former spouse. For more information, go to www.socialsecurity.gov. Q ue s tion : What is a Social Security credit? A n sw er : During your working years, earnings covered by Social Security are posted to your record. You earn Social Security credits based on those earnings. The amount of earnings needed for one credit rises as average earnings levels rise. In 2011, you receive one credit for each $1,120 of earnings. You can earn up to a maximum of four credits a year. Most people will need a minimum of 40 credits (or 10 years of work) to be eligible for retirement benefits. Learn more by reading the online publication How You Earn Credits at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10072.html. Q ue s tion : What is the earliest age that I can begin receiving retirement benefits? A n sw er : You can get a reduced benefit as early as age 62. Keep in mind that your monthly benefit amount would be about 33 percent higher if you wait until age 66 and nearly 80 percent higher if you defer payments until age 70. Visit our Retirement Estimator to find out how much you can expect to receive. You can find it at www.socialsecurity.gov/estimator. Q ue s tion : How does Social Security decide if someone is disabled? A n sw er : For an adult to be considered disabled, Social Security must determine that you are unable to do the work you did before and, based on your age, education, and work experience, you are unable to adjust to any other work that exists in significant numbers in the national economy. Also, your disability must last or be expected to last for at least one year or to result in death. Social Security pays only for total disability. No benefits are payable for partial disability or short-term disability (less than a year). For more information, we recommend you read Disability Benefits (SSA Publication No. 05-10029), available online at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10029.html.

Summer lawn, landscape tips K eeping your lawn green and landscaping colorful in Floridas blazing hot summers is no easy task, especially during the drought conditions we find ourselves experiencing now. But maintaining a healthy summer lawn and flowers requires more than just rain or a dedicated watering routine. Read on for tips from Marion County Extension Service to help keep your yard in tip-top shape. De-stress your grass Your family doctor has probably recommended reducing your stress to improve your health. Improve the health of your lawn by watching for and reducing stressors on your grass. Mowing exerts stress on your grass, but keeping the mower blades sharpened reduces it by cutting cleanly and neatly. A dull blade produces a ragged cut, increasing surface area for moisture release and causing grass to dry out faster. For a half-acre residential lawn, mower blades should be sharpened three to four times during the summer. Resist the temptation to shear your grass to ground level in an attempt to mow as little as possible. This places added stressors on your grass and impairs root development; the first cold snap can severely damage or kill such a lawn. Let St. Augustine and Bahia grass grow to 4 inches and cut to 3. Let Zoysia grass grow to 3 inches and cut to 2. Soil type and conditions are also critical elements that help determine the health of your lawn. Sandy, welldrained soils are prevalent in central Florida, and are prone to drying out quickly, making lawns especially susceptible to dry spells. Soil surrounding homes is often compacted by heavy equipment during construction and can affect grass growth for years. Plants need oxygen and compacted soil has little pore space, meaning little oxygen. You may need to use an aerator (a garden tool that perforates the ground) to enhance oxygen content. Not too late for flowers Want to add fancy flora to your yard? Attract butterflies? Edge boring beds and borders with splashes of color? Its not too late! Though March through May is the usual time to plant summer annuals in central Florida, try this short list of plants that can still thrive through late summer if planted soon. Vinca Flowers: white, purple, pink and lavender. Height: 1 to 2 feet. Space: about two feet apart in well-drained soil. Will re-seed and come back year after year. Penta Flowers: red, pink, lavender, white and purple. Height: 2 to 3 feet. Space: a few feet apart. Attracts butterflies. Gerbera daisy Flowers: white, red, orange, yellow, salmon and pink. Height: 6 inches. Space: 1 foot apart. Set plants in the ground so that the crown is slightly above the soil. Dahlberg daisy Flowers: bright yellow. Height: low-growing. Space: about a foot apart. Cupflower Flowers: white, blue-violet and purple. Height: 6 inches to a 1 foot.

A murder trial in our area that gained international attention involved a young woman accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter. She was facing four counts of murder including the death penalty. After the jury deliberated, they came back and exonerated her on all four counts. The jurys verdict was, not guilty. As far as the law is concerned, this woman is not guilty of the crime she was accused. I say, as far as the law is concerned, but not as far as the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is concerned. For some reason she took an interest in this case and followed it quite faithfully. Fortunately, I did not have to follow this closely, my wife kept me up to date on all of the details. I did listen to some of the news reports, which only served to confuse me on this whole matter. Its amazing how people who know nothing about the law and have never studied law seems to know more about the law then lawyers and judges. I think the only other profession where the layman knows more than the one who has studied it for years is a minister. Personally, I am uncomfortable being in the same category as a bunch of lawyers. Im thinking of suing. While I am thinking about lawyers, isnt it strange that everybody hates lawyers until they need a lawyer? Crooked is as crooked thinks. Spill a cup of hot coffee on your lap while driving and who ya goin call? Not a doctor but a lawyer. Of course, the person that ought to be sued is the person who was drinking hot coffee while driving. Arent mothers teaching their kids anything these days? When an accident occurs, the first thing people think of calling is, not the police, not a tow truck, but a lawyer. I wonder what these lawyers did before cell phones. I would not be surprised to discover that behind the cell phone phenomena are a bunch of lawyers. We have something in our country that says a person is innocent until proven guilty. What I want to know is, what do you call a person who has been proven not guilty? Of course, it is all in the eyes of the beholder. It is too bad the jury in this recent case did not have an opportunity to hear my wife pontificate on this case. They may have come up with a different verdict. Nevertheless, the not guilty verdict was issued and that, as they say, is that. Then my wife said something that spun my brain just a wee bit. What is the difference between being not guilty and innocent? Well, that puts things in a different light. It is entirely possible to be not guilty as far as the law is concerned and on the other hand not be innocent, either. Every husband knows what I am talking about here. No matter how hard he tries to prove he is not guilty, he never arrives at that euphoric state of being innocent. After being married as long as I have been, I settle for those brief occasions when my wife considers me not guilty. I used to fight for being declared innocent by my better half, but I am willing to be considered not guilty if that closes the matter. Nothing like closing the matter so I can move on to the next issue. Sometimes the verdict of not guilty is because someone has not caught you in the act but you still may not be innocent. Take the Apple fritter incident this past week. My good wife could not prove I was guilty of eating an apple fritter but she also knew I was not innocent of it either. I am willing to settle for not guilty. I was thinking about this recent murder case and it dawned on me that what seems obvious to one person might not be obvious at all to another person. Almost like looking in a mirror. When I raise my right hand, the object in the mirror raises its left-hand. When I wink my right eye, the person in the mirror winks his left eye. The only consolation I have about this mirror business is that I am not quite as ugly as the person in the mirror. Right here is where I plead the fifth. It is easy to jump to a conclusion when you do not have all of the facts pertaining to the situation at hand. My wife has been guilty of this in the past. Before collecting all of the evidence about a situation, she jumps to the conclusion that I am guilty. The problem with this is, I usually am guilty. Right now justice is a rather fickle thing. We can look forward to a time when justice will be perfect. The Bible says, And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more (Jeremiah 31:34 KJV). And, As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us (Psalms 103:12 KJV). Not guilty or innocent is not the real issue, but forgiveness. The Rev. James L.

Riverland sports Riverland News, Thursday, July 5, 2011 9 Tommy Boss is once again hanging up his Dunnellon High School jersey. The former Tiger fireballer, who went on to play for the University of Florida, as well as in the minor league baseball system for the Boston Red Sox, has resigned as the head coach of the baseball program after an impressive five-year stint at the helm. The next stop for the Dunnellon product is St. Johns Community College, where hell serve as an assistant coach with his duties focusing on handling the pitching staff. The career switch will reunite him with a familiar face as well as keep him in touch with a few of his former high school players, including David Bouton, Reid Love and Forrest Wheeler. Both Bouton and Reid are on scholarships, while Wheeler will be a walkon hoping to earn playing time. I told Principal Michelle Lewis, I eventually wanted to get into college coaching, he explained. This was too good to turn down. Theres never a good time for change. I feel like the program is in good shape, whoever takes over will be able to hit the ground running. St. Johns wasnt the lone collegiate program that had an interest in Boss services. He interviewed with Eastern Illinois and a university in the Washington, D.C. area. But his connections with St. Johns proved too much, including the opportunity to stay close to Dunnellon. Current St. Johns head coach Ross Jones, was Boss pitching coach for the Gators. He also served as head recruiter for Pat McMahon, the head coach during Boss collegiate career. Knowing the demands of his players, Boss believes its an excellent fit for both him and his soon-tobe-boss, who also serves as the athletic director at St. Johns. I mean the same drills I did at Dunnellon, I learned at Florida when I pitched for him, Boss explained. I think thats kind of why he chose me. Hes now the (athletic director) hes got a lot of duties besides baseball. Ill to be able to come in and handle pitching staff. He knows I know his philosophies about players. I think well be able to put together a pretty good team. Boss called his five-year tenure as head coach awesome. I cant thank Mrs. Lewis enough for giving a 22-year-od kid at the time the chance to coach his alma matter, Boss said. It was definitely a great honor. I have nothing but the best to say about the school and community. Theres great support all the way around, he added. It was definitely a head turner, when she asked me to be head coach. Didnt take me anytime to think about it, I was all about giving it a chance. Id say Dunnellon baseball is heading in the right direction. During Boss tenure as the skipper of the Tigers, the team won three consecutive district championships, capped by a run to the Class 4A final four in 2009. He finished with an overall record of 94-45, including back-toback 20-plus-win seasons. Boss teams never had a losing record. Id have to say looking back, making it to the final four in Port St. Lucie, finishing in the top four in the state, he recalled. Just that experience for the guys to play on some big fields, nice facilities, to go down there and play on the Mets big league spring training, field, treated like kings. It was awesome and something Ill never forget. Boss wife, Mary Katherine, will continue to work at Dunnellon High, where she teaches and serves as cheerleading coach. Boss will continue working at Local Legends, a restaurant he coowns. He said his new job will allow him to take the summer off as well as winters, meaning hell be on campus for the fall and spring baseball campaigns. That was one of the good deals about this, he admitted. Its going to let me work here and there. Ill get an apartment during the season and be able to work here during slow time. After the season is over, Ill be able to come back home. And, of course, theres no place like home. JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsTommy Boss, right, lines up along the third-base line with his for the national anthem prior to the Tigers district championship game against rival North Marion. Dunnellon won the game, capturing their third straight district title. Boss, whose been the head coach for the past five seasons, recently resigned after accepting an assistant coaching role at St. Johns Community College in Palatka. Dunnellon baseball skipper resigns for collegiate coaching position JEFF BRYAN Riverland News SPORTS BRIEFS DHS softball players earn state honorsSami Fagan, the Florida Gatorade Softball Player of the Year, continues to add distinct honors to her already impressive resume. The Florida-bound Fagan, who batted .691 with 51 runs and 28 stolen bases as a senior, was recently named Miracle Sports' Class 4A player of the year. In addition to that, Fagan was selected as a FACA First Team All-State player along with teammate Caylee Underwood. Underwood, who signed with the College of Central Florida earlier this spring, received an honorable mention selection from Miracle Sports after hitting. 405 with a teambest six triples while adding 29 RBIs. Both players were four-year starters for the Lady Tigers, helping the team win back-toback state championships in 2009 and 2010.

Major, Junior All-Star boys fall in tourney semifinals Title hopes for Dunnellons Major and Junior AllStar Baseball teams were doused Monday and Sunday, respectively, as the two teams fell in the semifinals in the District 15 tournament. On Monday, the Major All-Star boys lost to Inverness, 3-1, finishing with a record of 2-2 in the tournament. Dunnellon had avoided elimination Saturday, crushing Central Citrus 14-2.

Scoring for Dunnellon in the first inning were Zachary West, Kobie Jones and Logan Townsend. In the second Dunnellon blew the game open as Jones and Joshua Williams scored twice in the frame. They were joined by Townsend, Hunter Corne, Brandon Carroll, Matthew Mills, Jarod Hamm and West, who all plated runs in the frame. In the third inning Mills scored Dunnellons last run. On Sunday, the Junior All-Stars were knocked out of title contention with a 43 eight-inning loss to Central Citrus in a game that took eight hours and change in venues to be completed. After Sunday afternoon thunderstorms soaked the fields at Bicentennial Park, the game was moved to Central Ridge Park in Holder. Both Dunnellon and Central Citrus remained tied until the eighth inning when Ashton Honeggar plated the winning run, 4-3, for Central Citrus.

Joanne Black, who worked with Shettleroe for the past 10-plus years. Lori had a very, very dry sense of humor. She loved to play practical jokes. She never planned them, but she loved to get involved with them, and no one would ever suspect her. She always had a straight face. During her tenure with the city and the police department, Shettleroe wore a variety of hats. Hired in April 1991 as a cashier/receptionist, she served in several capacities including public works secretary and assistant city clerk from January 1995 to June 2000. She also served as the interim city clerk for four months in 1999 while Dawn Bowne was out on maternity leave. Lori and I worked long hours together and became close as we both continued to take on additional challenges and responsibilities in the city, Bowne said. She was very independent, strong, calm and not easily rattled by the craziness of city business. She was always reliable and an extremely loyal employee and friend. I will truly miss Lori and her unique sense of humor that made city life enjoyable. Shettleroe began her career with the police department in July 2000, working as a part-time evidence clerk. She was promoted to full-time status in October 2003. During her time there, former co-worker Maxine Thomas praised Shettleroe for her work ethic, but said it was the person shell fondly remember. She was good people, said Thomas, who retired in March 2008. We shared a lot of stories. One thing that is remarkable to me is we both loved our children. Its one of the main things we have in common. She loved her children. We were both grandmothers, she was a doting grandmother like I was. She was very friendly, I loved Lori, she added. I dont really know a complete word to describe her. This is just so heart-breaking. Its just mind boggling. Lori was good people I enjoyed working with her. For Black, the loss of not only a co-worker, but a friend, is painful. She was a good friend and an outstanding employee, said Black, her eyes still red and puffy from crying. We always went on vacations together. Every time shed look at the department calendar and see my vacation scheduled, shed have her request in shortly. She loved the mountains, she loved going to the mountains. Her favorite hobbies included reading, watching soap operas and cooking. She was one hell of a cook, said Lt. Sue Webb, noting her specialties included Sloppy Joes, Clam Chowder and other soups. Im not a Sloppy Joe fan, but when she cooked it, I ate it. They were the best, she made everything from scratch. 14 Riverland News, Thursday, July 14, 2011 MOURNING continued from page 1 Justin Shettleroe comforts his 3-year-old daughter, Addison, after the service ends.
