WHATS HAPPENING Police: Man ingests crack A 48-year-old Dunnellon man faces a litany of charges, including driving under the influence and possession of cocaine, less than 28 grams, after a traffic stop Thursday, July 14, in the 8000 block of U.S. 41, just outside of the city limits, an arrest report stated. Thomas C. Seifert was also charged with driving with no valid license, tampering with evidence and violation of parole. According to the Marion County Sheriffs Office website, Seiferts remained in jail at press time Tuesday in lieu of a $10,650 bond. His next court date is scheduled for Aug. 16, the website stated. According to the report, authorities were patrolling the area near the city limits when Seifert pulled onto U.S. 41 driving northbound. Once he drove past the city limit, Sgt. Jacob Gonzalez began to turn around when he witnessed Seifert cross the double line and enter the southbound lane. Gonzalez turned around to conduct a traffic stop when Seifert crossed the double line again. Upon making the stop, Sgt. Gonzleaz detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from Seifert, the report stated. Thomas C. Seifert Council OKs rate increase Plan calls for hike for 5 years Despite pleas from residents in Dunnellon, the City Council approved a course of action to implement a five-year rate hike for water and sewer rates for utility customers. The increases, set at 6.75 percent per year for the next five years, will go into effect Oct. 1, meaning customers will notice the additional prices in November. According to the report, those who use 4,000 gallons or less will see a drop in price, but it will be those who consume more than that total that will see their monthly bill increase. The rate increases are contingent on the citys acquisition of the Rio Vista system, which the city began the process of in June when the council gave the go ahead. Officials said then that the process would likely take time; however, a representative with Burton & Associates indicated that city officials will likely have purchased the system soon and it will be online in the 2012 Fiscal Year. Otherwise, the rate increases without the Rio Vista system would have been 11 percent a year for the length of the study. If you do this, you will devastate the city, resident Debbie Bismark said. The choice is up to you look in your souls deeply. You need to find ways to attract businesses. Look at the situation with Lowes years ago when they wanted to come here. It would have created a base of least 125 jobs, but the council then wanted them to do so much that they chose to go elsewhere. Now you have 125 people going elsewhere for work; some of them driving 40 minutes everyday for an $8 an hour job. With the cost of gas, that really cuts into their budgets. Is this really fair? You need to ask yourself, Am I a big enough villain to sleep at night? Resident Louise Kenney urged the council to review the plan each year, not to simply adopt Judge denies Tarmac motion Next hearing slated Aug. 8 BRONSON The town of Yankeetowns petition to overturn a conditional permit for a 2,757 acre limerock mine on 4,750 acres near Inglis is alive after Tarmacs motion to dismiss was denied by Circuit Judge Robert E. Rountree Jr. In a short morning hearing, the judge also granted a request to move a hearing about whether Yankeetown has standing to file the petition for certiorari from Wednesday to Aug. 8. While only an hour was requested for the second hearing, Rountree said, Knowing how many lawyers we have here, Ill set aside two hours. Brian A. Bolves, the attorney representing the Levy County Commission, said in a motion Yankeetown did not have standing because it is only slightly impacted by the countys decision to grant a special exception permit conditioned on Tarmac winning approval of a Clean Water Act permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. On pages 2, 3 and 4 of their motion, they admit the mine will cause an impact, Yankeetown City Attorney Rolf Brooks said. Its a half-inch ... quarter-inch that water level will drop ... or six inches during the rainy season, Splash of success Dozens of would-be flamethrowers gave it their best shot Saturday at Dunnellon Plaza. Even if their aim was a bit off, it was certain someone was getting wet. And sure enough, the inaugural Annie W. Johnson Dunk for Hope created a splash of success as community and civic leaders found themselves waterlogged by the end of the event. It was a very successful event, Christine Avina, client services coordinator, said. Lets just say, people loved getting dunked. The people who participated knew it was a way to raise money JEFF BRYAN/Riverland News ABOVE: Mayor Fred Ward braces himself as hes dunked at the Annie W.

Finally, the dream of their grandfather and father has become a reality as the siblings foray into business begins with the opening of Gaetanos Subs at 11943 Williams St., which formerly housed McKinneys Restaurant. Weve finally done it, said Chinners, who previous worked for the U.S. Post Office at the Ocala branch. Its definitely different than delivering mail. Chinners has lived in Dunnellon for the past six and half years; her brother moved here three months ago after having worked in what she called a milliondollar deli.

Sanchez, Furr represent DHS Its difficult to imagine a week that could impact lives and allow for the discovering of what a young generation can accomplish, what we will soon be capable of, and what were already responsible for. This is exactly what was learned by more than 500 boys who attended the 68th session of Florida American Legions Boys State at Florida State University in Tallahassee from July 3 to 9. The Wall-Rives American Legion Post 58 in Dunnellon sent two delegates to Boys State, Brandon Sanchez and Jacob Furr. The soon-to-be seniors, who have to have good grade point averages, were chosen after completing an application and interview process. This leadership program was first established in 1935. Every state but Hawaii offers a Boys State experience. Here in Florida, the annual program teaches more than 500 upcoming high school seniors how local and state government works, how it is structured, and how Florida came to be. The unique aspect of this program is that the educating is done through learning by doing. This phrase couldnt be any truer, as the delegates of the program run for as well as elect others into office. They give speeches, hold debates, organize committees, write their own bills, campaign and even hold party rallies. Seeing all of these processes first-hand was truly eyeopening, and visiting the state capital to recreate the branches of government while utilizing the actual rooms and equipment used by the real government officials was exciting and gave further authenticity towards the experience and intentions of the prestigious program. Residing in the Smith Hall dormitory on the Florida State campus was an eye-opening experience. The boys were spread out over five floors with one set of facilities per floor. The most interesting part was living such a different life with different people for a whole week, Sanchez said. I got used to the daily process. Added Furr: (The dorms) were not as hospitable as I expected, but at least I got to see how college life will be. Another opportunity began on the first day in Tallahassee. Once admitted into Boys State, all delegates were pre-enrolled into Tallahassee Community College for a chance to earn free college-credit by dual-enrolling online, which would also earn a student a social science credit at their high school. I opted to do the course and will be completing assignments over the political, social and economic aspects of Florida throughout the next few weeks, Sanchez said. The boys have already taken three tests on government and history and have four other projects to complete in the next three weeks. I learned things about Florida that most Floridians dont even know, Furr said. We have the first permanent European settlement in the U.S. Pensacola; Florida was divided east and west and was the 14th and 15th colonies; and Tallahassee has the tallest capital building in the U.S. The opportunities and benefits of Boys State really begin to seem limitless. My favorite parts were visiting the state capital building, and making friends with some of the brightest kids in Florida, Sanchez said. Although the boys made a lot of friends from all over, it was an Ocala teen that impressed the entire group enough to be elected governor of Boys State. Brendien B.J. Mitchell, a West Port High School student, was chosen. (Mitchell) was an amazing speaker, said Furr. When I first heard him competing against a kid from my group for the nationalism speech, I knew instantly that he had awesome oratorical abilities. He used these powers to help him win governor. For such an incredible week, the boys wish to thank American Legion Post 58 of Dunnellon, which funded the journey. They feel it has been an immense honor to have the opportunity to be a part of something that only about 500 other Florida boys from the entire graduating class of 2012 have a chance to experience.

According to the report, Sgt. Gonzalez contacted the Marion County Sheriffs Office, which advised it did not have a unit available to respond to the scene in which Capt. Butch Gallion requested Sgt. Gonzalez and Officer Mike Miley to arrest the defendant, which is allowed by the mutual aid agreement with the Dunnellon Police Department and the Marion County Sheriffs Office. At that time, Officer Miley requested Siefert exit his vehicle at which time he placed him in handcuffs, the report stated. During a search of Siefert for weapons and contraband, Sgt. Gonzalez asked him to open his mouth at which time Sgt. Gonzalez observed several smile white rock substances in the corner of Sieferts mouth, the report stated. According to the report, Sgt. Gonzalez, through training and experience, knew the substance to be crack cocaine and requested Siefert to allow him to swab his mouth for his safety and to determine how much crack cocaine he might have ingested. The report stated Sgt. Gonzalez swabbed Sieferts mouth with a cotton swap in which Officer Miley conducted a presumptive field test, which yielded a positive result for the presence of cocaine. According to the report, Seifert was read an implied consent and his Miranda warning to which he stated he did not wish to speak with authorities. He was then transported to the Marion County Jail, the report stated. Upon arrival at the jail, authorities requested Seifert be transported to Munroe Regional Medical Center due to him ingesting an unknown amount of crack cocaine and Seifert now having high blood pressure, the report stated. While at the hospital, Officer Miley requested Seifert submit to a lawful test of his blood to determine if he was under the influence of any controlled substance or chemicals to which he refused, the report stated. According to the report, Seifert was kept by the hospital for further evaluation before being transferred to the jail. the plan for the duration of what the study suggests. Its very difficult to read that resolution as it is, she explained. Im sympathetic with the needs and challenges we have here in Dunnellon, but I think this is a tremendous injustice. I would like to see this looked at one year at a time. Vice Mayor F.C. Stark asked for wording to be included in the ordinance that the study would be reviewed on an as needed basis. His request set off a lengthy discussion among council members. Councilman Dennis Evans, who made the motion to approve the study, questioned the need for such language. Im reluctant to put wording in it, he said. I feel personally, its OK the way it is. Councilwoman Penny Fleeger agreed. The financial situation around the globe is tenacious at best, she explained. Who knows whats going to happen financially with bonds and such. Itll probably happen once a year when we do the budget. We have a lot happening right now. Councilwoman Lynn McAndrew added: We take a look at that fund every year we go through the budget. It can be revised at that time. Mayor Fred Ward concurred with McAndrew. We do review it annually, we have to make sure its solvent, Ward said of the citys water-sewer enterprise fund. I dont feel strongly about it that way, but I wouldnt want to go to war over it. Stark urged again for language to be added. Unless you put specific language in there, Im telling you right now, it wont happen, he said of reviewing the plan. Too many times it doesnt happen. Im just asking for very plain language, thats all Im asking. Evans relented and amended his original motion to include language to review the plan on an as needed basis. This seems more political and Im not into that game, he explained while making the amended motion. To see the complete study, read this story online at www.riverland news.com.

Residents injured in single-car wreck; one critically Two Dunnellon residents were injured, one critically, in a single-vehicle wreck Thursday night on Southwest 210th Avenue in Dunnellon, a Florida Highway Patrol report stated. The driver of the vehicle, Thomas Piller, 33, sustained serious injuries, while his passenger, Jessica F. Klemm, 27, was critically injured, the report stated. According to the report, Thomas Piller, 33, was driving a 2006 Buick Lacrosse north on Southwest 210th Avenue when the vehicle traveled across the southbound traffic lane onto the slopped west shoulder out of control for approximately 284 feet. The vehicle then rotated slightly in a clockwise direction and crossed both traffic lanes of Southwest 210th Avenue for approximately 78 feet, the report stated. Pillers vehicle then continued out of control onto the east shoulder of the road and struck a tree with its left front corner, the report stated, then redirected off the tree where it came to final rest. According to the report, the vehicle caught fire. The fire was extinguished, when FHP officials arrived at the scene, the report stated. Both Piller and Klemm had been extricated from the vehicle by witnesses who had arrived on scene just after the crash, the report stated. According to the report, physical evidence of tire marks in the grass and yaw marks across the roadway were consistent with Pillers failure to drive in a single lane. The report did not indicate what hospital Piller or Klemm were transported to. Charges are pending, the report stated.

River views Officials dropped the ball in preparing for GreenlightRE: Greenlight launch date uncertain. I am not a resident of the city of Dunnellon, but some non-english speaking workers installed underground conduit through my front yard during the past month, so I do have some interest in the project. As a retired professional engineer for over 30 years, I am appalled at the lack of competent management and planning that is portrayed in your article, which describes excuses by the city manager for delays in completing this project. It is apparent the city failed to prepare an adequate Feasible Study for this project prior to committing to proceed with it. In my experience, which includes numerous commercial and governmental projects, and teaching Capital Financial Management courses at a major universitys, business school, the following items clearly should have been established, and fixed-cost proposals acquired for this project during the Feasibility Study phase: Whether the existing utility poles can support the additional load of the fiber? Should these poles be replaced, and at what cost? Or should the fiber be run underground in an existing utility right-of-way, or must a right-of way be obtained, and at what cost? The Rate Study should have been completed, because this information is critical for determining if the project is financially feasible. Delivery dates and lead times for obtaining available materials from vendors should have been obtained, and a critical path schedule for construction activities should have been prepared. The loan officers and directors of the Orlando Bank that is issuing the bonds have clearly failed to demonstrate prudent financial analysis of the relevant economic facts, since these obviously were not available to be considered when the decision to issue these Junk Bonds was made. (I dont know which rating agency agreed to rate these bonds without adequate financial information, but hope your retirement fund doesnt buy any of them.) Its no wonder that the American Economy is in recession if the Greenlight project is a typical example of the current, competence of managers and bankers in this country. In my opinion, the residents of Dunnellon should vote the members of their Council out of office as soon as possible, and fire the current city manager, who is responsible for administrating their affairs. Daibhe Baker Dunnellon Were costs factored into bond issue?The Riverland News articles of the last few weeks concerning the Greenlight Communications system have been useful in providing readers with schedule updates. Some of the content Less walk-ons, more openness needed at meetings The pickup line H ave you seen the TV show American Pickers? It is like watching Hoarders on crack. You can find the show on the History Channel. These two guys Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz drive across the Untied States looking to buy old junk. They are the Laurel and Hardy of antiques. They own a shop in Iowa called Antique Anthropologist. One year, when I was visiting my favorite sister in Ohio, I saw their van drive by us on Route 80. Jokingly, I said to my sister: Follow that van they probably know where all the good antique shops are. This was before they had their own TV show. Can you imagine the treasure we would have found if we had followed them? That is what Mike and Frank consider themselves to be, treasure hunters. I think junk picker is a more appropriate name. They go down the back roads of America where the land is plenty and the junk is sky high. The places they visit are the real stars of the show. A lot of old timers have barns and sheds full of J-UN-K. When I say shed I am talking sheds the size of an airplane hangar. The barns were at one time working farms. Now they house old signs, World War II bullets, broken toys and old photos. Mike and Frank go through each barn with work boots on and a flashlight in hand. I dont know how they find anything in the decades of dust. People collect the oddest things. One guy had old wires, broken door knobs and shoes. Why? What is the point of buying all this stuff and keeping it locked away on valuable real estate? It is one thing if you have a collection of knickknacks that you display in moderation. It is a whole other ball of wax when you store things like well, a ball of wax in your three-acre barn. Hey, if people can afford to pay real estate taxes on a three-acre closet let them. The show really is a lesson on the American industrial revolution. The guys find old washing machines, bicycles (Mikes favorite), radios, TVs, cars and Airstream trailers. It saddens me that all the things Americans took pride in manufacturing are sitting in large dust bins scattered across the country. The manufacturing jobs may have disappeared, but the proof that it once existed in America is sitting in some guys barn. One guy they visited lived off the grid, as they say. His house was 13 rooms underground in the woods. Im not talking about an architecturally designed green home. This was dirt walls that the guy shoveled by hand with skinny passage ways held up by old plywood. The deeper under ground they went, the more claustrophobic I got. I felt dirty watching the guys squeeze through the tight spaces. It wasnt an easy feat for Frank. He would be the Oliver Hardy of the two. When I finished watching that episode, I went on a cleaning spree. I vacuumed the floor boards, the furniture and anything that wasnt attached to the floor. I dusted and I washed windows. Gosh, it was scary. I dont know what came over me. There is no need to panic. By the time you read this, I am sure my home will be back to its natural state, messy!

When sensational cases such as this hit the media the cry for justice is loud and recriminations even louder. How could this happen? What kind of person would do this to a child? What can we do to prevent this type of thing from happening in the future? This must be an isolated case, right? Wrong! Abused and neglected children are all around us. In Florida alone there are currently more than 22,000 children that have been abused or neglected in some manner or other and now they and their parents are involved in lengthy dependency court proceedings. Here in the 5th Judicial Circuit, which includes Marion, Lake, Sumter, Citrus and Hernando counties, nearly 1,500 children find themselves involved with the Judicial and Child Welfare systems. What can I do? Is there any way I can help? Yes. Become a Volunteer Guardian ad Litem. A Guardian ad Litem is a volunteer appointed by the court to advocate for a child. The volunteer works as part of a team with a volunteer supervisor and program attorney. He or she becomes familiar with the child and his/her case and makes recommendations to the court to help insure a safe, caring, stable and permanent environment is secured for the child. Today in Florida more than 7,500 citizens are volunteering with the Guardian ad Litem Program. However, here in the 5th Circuit, fewer than 500 volunteers are actively looking out for the health, welfare and care of our dependent children. We need more help. To qualify as a Guardian ad Litem volunteer, you must be 21 years of age or older, successfully complete 30 hours of pre-service training, have a clean criminal background check and possess the ability to be objective. On average, volunteers spend 6-10 hours a month on a case that may last about 10 months. If youre interested in volunteering or learning more about how you can help abused and neglected children, contact Lynn Sennett at (352) 3692525 or e-mail her at Lynn.Sennett@GAL.FL.GOV or visit our web site at www.guardianadlitem.org.Marcia Hilty, circuit director of Guardian Ad Litem, can be reached at Marcia.Hilty@gal.fl.gov. The Death of Caylee Anthony N othing makes me cringe more than a walk-on agenda item, and Im not referring to college athletes. This is more about last minute walk on items to the Dunnellon city council meetings. Generally when they pop up its because money needs to be spent. Those in attendance are left in the dark because copies of the said items and the back-up material are not provided to the taxpayers. It makes government business appear shady. Sure there are certain times when time is of the essence but rash decisions never seem to end well when the public is left in the dark. In todays era of shady, under-thetable business dealings in government, in which the public calls for more openness, this is a situation that some would probably cry foul. Case in point was a recent walk on item for engineering needs necessary to acquire a $650,000 Community Development Block Grant in which the city is working under a narrow time frame to make the necessary deadline for qualification purposes. Its rather ironic that the council was so quick to jump into the race for a grant when several months ago a resident approached the council about taking advantage of the opportunity to turn a portion of Nine Island Cove into a nature trail and council members chided the resident for asking officials to support the project with such a narrow time frame to submit necessary documents. Now city officials find themselves in a race to beat the clock to qualify for this grant to connect a water line from wells at the airport to the citys water system. In just a few short weeks, the city has had to put together a citizen advisory task force, complete an interlocal agreement with county officials to purchase water at bulk rates and spend $121,400 to cover the surveying costs. Thats not even including the surveys of residents and the need to schedule two public hearings within the next three weeks. Its a lot to accomplish in a short time and full of hypocrisy to boot. Grant processes always come in annual cycles so why the need to rush through this process and take a chance at missing a vital piece of information that could prove costly in the process? The proper step would have been to put this on the radar for next year and follow their own advice about entering into such a cumbersome process so late in the game. Do as I say not as I do is bad policy in government. Kathleen Wallace Jeff Bryan Editor See LETTERS page 5 Marcia Hilty Guardian Ad-Litem
of the articles has been confusing though, particularly in the identification of certain costs. It would appear that some of the costs of installation were not in the original plan. Specifically, the cost to study the feasibility of adding the cables to Progress Energy poles, the cost for hardware and labor to execute the installation, or the alternative of underground cabling, and the cost of the consumer pricing study all would appear to be unplanned expenses. The reader is at least given this impression. More difficult to understand is whether the $1.3 million for hardware, initially to be provided by Motorola, is simply going to another vendor or whether the cost was never budgeted in the planning phase. If all these items are additional, that is, unbudgeted, it greatly compounds the problem with the delay in deployment and revenue generation. The ability to make bond payments appears to be a major issue. This ambitious Dunnellon initiative seems very risky right now. Ted Apple Dunnellon Masonic Lodge presents certificate of thanks The Dunnellon Masonic Lodge No. 136 awarded Ms. Avonelle Mackerell a certificate of thanks for her assistance in helping our lodge have a successful turnout at Boomtown days supporting our free child ID program. The lodge also presented her with a thank you card signed by the members of the lodge. Without her letting us set the computers and cameras at her office, we wouldnt of have had the successful turnout of kids that we had. Dallas Helms Morriston What are the Democrats planning? The Democrats are locked in debate over raising the debt ceiling. They are saying that if it is not raised we seniors may not get our Social Security checks. Arent these the same guys who tried to convince seniors that they were our friends? It is just like them to put their hands in our pockets again. Social Security money is not the governments. Those funds came directly from our pay checks and our employers profits for more than 30 years to be used only for our retirement. These are the same people who stole from the Trust Fund throughout the years for other programs and left it insolvent. They are putting their hands in our bank account. Remember, Social Security is only money you are getting back that you and your employer paid in. Now they are at it again. It shows their mind set. President Obama, then a senator, a few short years ago, stated that raising the debt ceiling was irresponsible and voted against it. What changed? Well, since then the Democrats have had absolute control of government for the past four years and spent like a drunken Democrat. Democrats say we need to tax The Rich. My question for you, Liberal seniors, is To whom do you owe your retirement pension? A person on welfare, the government or a guy who had a few bucks and gave you a job and a pension? Recently, the Obama administration sold guns, lots of them, to criminals. At the same time, they are pushing for gun control to keep guns out of the hands of private law-abiding American citizens. How does this make us safer? Have you seen the TV ad the Democrats are running showing a man pushing an elderly woman in a wheel chair over a cliff? The next time it airs take a good look at the man pushing the wheelchair. You will see that he is a Democrat. Richard P. Mack Dunnellon As present condition, where is town headed?What will Dunnellons legacy be? Right now, many of Dunnellons smaller businesses are shutting down, due to the economy, ill health or death, and there seems to be no replacements in the near future. Family entertainment in Dunnellon is nil, the city makes no effort to keep families in town. The only place that attracts people is that poor ol watering hole now renamed Blue Run Park of Dunnellon, a title longer than its parking lot. The potential for Dunnellon making some money from this park is lost. Permits and licenses couldve been sold for push cart vendors and entertainers, but no folks that go there are clumped together in the parking area with no picnic tables, poor access to the river and one porta-potty, some family fun, eh? Sometimes, I think that those that run Dunnellon run it as if it were their own exclusive club or act as if it were some of planned retirement village, but its not, its a living, breathing entity thats needs to change to survive. A city can limit the types of businesses that can come into its area, but it shouldnt choke off progress. A city can limit its size, but it shouldnt keep its people from finding employment within its boundaries and a city shouldnt deny its businesses some hometown customers. The only time you see a rush of shoppers in Dunnellon is during check day those days when many of the folks get their government benefits. The other time you see a rush of cars is during the high traffic hours when cars rush through Dunnellon going to someplace else, otherwise you can fire a cannon down the street and not hit anything. Right now, Dunnellon is beginning to look derelict; there are too many empty buildings on Williams Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, not to mention the empty places at the local shopping plazas. Many residential lots are empty or with dilapidated buildings. There are more second-hand shops in the historic district than there are retail shops. Instead of a town Dunnellon has become a kind of kwik mart, a close place to pick up a few things until the family can go to Ocala and spend some real money. There are 365 days in a year and the only events that Dunnellon scrapes together are Boomtown, Jazz Up and sometimes fireworks on the Fourth of July if its not too dry and, of course, the rag tag First Saturday flea markets, many other events arent even in town, costing the local businesses revenue. I once read somewhere that some city official complained that the people of Dunnellon werent interested in doing anything for the city, but the last time the city made an attempt to attract the peoples attention, after all the hoopla, the people were eventually ignored. I remember a long while ago Dunnellon passed around a survey asking folks what would they like to see in the city and the people responded with the desire for more family entertainment such as a video arcade, a bowling alley, a skate park or movie theater. The public asked for the old school gym on Williams Street to be repaired and used for intown basketball games and they asked that the old school property be turned into a large centrally located public park, but that never happened. The peoples requests fell on deaf ears so many times that they no longer believe Dunnellon was interested in them and finally when their kids grew up and moved away, the adults lost interest in Dunnellon, but now a new batch of kids are here and still nothing. What was funny was that the modern families of Dunnellon asked for stuff that the harkened back to the small town days of the 1950s. In many small towns right now crime is becoming the biggest generator of income through the issuing of tickets or fines and what this money doesnt cover comes in the form of higher taxes to fewer residents. In many small towns in the Midwest only those folks that have no kin and nowhere to go remain. Towns that once had populations of 3,000 dwindle down to less than 100 and some are completely abandoned. Is this, the direction Dunnellons headed? Sincerely, A.C. Rosier Dunnellon First United Methodist VBS a great success The First United Methodist Church of Dunnellon held Vacation Bible School this past week with nearly 150 children and over 50 adults/youth leaders in attendance. The theme Shake it Up Cafe was for kids to carry out Gods recipe and convey the message to believe fully in Jesus, and celebrate God forever. The children learned songs, were exposed to Biblical drama presentations, involving Communion, experimented in the food lab and learned to make butter. The children also made picture frames and cookbooks in the crafts area. Food donations were collected for a local agency, FIN (Families in Need) that helps feed families in the community on a weekly basis. Linda Jones, coordinator, along with her husband, Johnny, created a snack bar, ice cream shoppe and cafe display for the event. Men of the church taught young teens how to make birdfeeders, built hovercrafts and a zipline for excitement. The young chefs presented an outstanding program for their families and friends.

OCALA Shara Ponder was always there when you needed her, because she cared. Thats how family and friends recalled her Saturday afternoon at the House of God as family, friends and colleagues gathered to pay their last respects to the vibrant 29year-old who died Sunday, July 10, during her Celebration of Life for the Dunnellon Middle School teacher. And indeed it was a celebration, as the mood was upbeat despite a chorus of sobs throughout the packed house. The Rev. Dr. Lorenzo S. Edwards opened the somber event with a plea to those in attendance. There should be a prayer in each of your hearts, though it might not make your lips, for the family, he said. Dr. Edwards recalled his brief time with Ponder throughout her childhood, hoping his impact in her life was one that is eternal. I hope that there is one small measure in her life that I did something worthwhile in her life, he explained, noting life is not about how long you have, but what one has done with it. 6 Riverland News, Thursday, July 21, 2011 0 0 0 8 N S L Barehuggers Inc.

Family, friends gather to pay last respect to educator Farewell to the 50s OUT TO PASTOR W hoever said, All good things must come to an end, knew whereof he spoke. Why is it that something really good goes by so quickly and something really bad hangs around forever, or so it seems. Let me explain a little bit of what I mean. When the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, over my vociferous objections, cooks broccoli, the smell stays in the air for months. However, the invigorating aroma of an Apple fritter dissipates in a matter of moments. Except, of course, when Im trying to eat one behind you know whose back and she can smell it five days before I eat it. I dont smell an Apple fritter do I? she inquires. Youre not eating an apple fritter? she prods. There better not be any apple fritters in this house, she demands. My philosophy is simply this, what she can smell cant hurt me. The only problem is, she can smell, and usually its a rat, namely me. However, if I would pontificate 1/10 of the time about the smell of broccoli in the house I would not have to worry about smelling broccoli in the house. If you know what I mean. But if it is good, it seems to go by so very quickly. This past week something very good came to a very conclusive end. Through no effort of my own, I concluded the fifth decade of my life. I am just glad that at the conclusion of this decade I was around to see it. What I remember about the 50s is another matter altogether. As part of the baby boomer generation, another birthday boomed for me. This boom was a very significant one. I have bidden a fond farewell to my 50s. Ah, what a decade that was. It is a very good thing that the 50s come between the 40s and the 60s. Whoever devised this scenario knew something about human nature. When you are in your 40s, you, for some unknown reason, think you are still in your 20s. Many people in their 40s have bought into the notion that the 40s is the new 20s. Henceforth, most people, usually men, treat their body as if it was a 25-year-old man in perfect health. Now, a 45year-old body does not have the wisdom to realize that it is no longer 25. And so you have men in their 40s running and jumping and doing things that their body thinks it can do but it really cant. A body in the 40s is not mature enough for pain to register. In fact, no man in his 40s would acknowledge the fact that he has the pain. His wife, contrariwise, acknowledges the pain in her life. But thats another story. Once a man gets into his 50s, he has matured enough to the fact that he knows there are many things he physically cannot do. He knows, for instance, a 50-something body is not like a 20something body, therefore, he can begin slacking off on the physical stuff. Although, some 50-something men have not matured enough to understand the significance of the fifth decade. But in spite of all of that, the 50s have been a wonderful time for me. It is during the 50-something the man accomplishes most of his work. During his 40s, he is trying to pretend he is still CHURCH BRIEFS Rev. James Snyder See PASTOR page 7 See PONDER page 7 JEFF BRYAN Riverland News
That little hyphen, its about what you do in that time, that is whats going to count, Dr. Edwards finished. Kenton Colbert Sr., a long-time friend, recalled first meeting Ponder in the seventh grade. She was a very blessed person, a very carrying intelligent person, he explained. She was a wonderful child of God. Ponder was a product of the Marion County School System, graduating from Vanguard High School in 2000. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from Florida A&M University. Ponder, who began her teaching career at Dunnellon Middle School in 2007, taught Reading Remediation and was the Rookie Teacher of the Year in 2009-10 for the Marion County School District. She was recognized with a resolution from the School Board for her service and dedication. Youve impacted the lives of hundreds of students and teachers at Dunnellon Middle School, the resolution stated. As the service came to a close, the Rev. Derek Ponder Jr., a cousin and friend, recalled the day Shara was there for him. I had a BB gun and shot some girl and that BB lodged into her hand, he recalled, fighting back tears. I thought I was going to jail that day, but Shara was there for me and took care of the situation. No one went to jail and the situation never came up again. She always went the extra mile for everyone. Betty L. Allison, 79Betty L. Allison, 79, of Dunnellon, died Thursday, July 7, 2011 at the Legacy House in Ocala.

The Hoffmanns are the parents of Nancy Barkley and Larry Hoffmann of Dunnellon, and Sean Hoffmann and Meribeth King of Pittsburgh, Pa. They have 11 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. PONDER continued from page 6 in his 20s, but by the time he hits that magic 50, he is more interested in accomplishing things in his career. Work is very important at this phase of life. And work he does, because at this stage he has a mortgage, a family and bills coming out both his back pockets faster than it goes in. If he has children, he enters the 50s with several teenagers in the house and maybe some grandchildren. This is enough to drive any man to work, if not crazy. For any man to conclude the fifth decade without permanent residence in the Looney farm is quite an accomplishment. By the mid-50s, things begin to become all quiet on the Western front. Many people refer to this as the empty nest syndrome. All I can say is, hallelujah for the empty nest syndrome. I just hope some doctor does not come up with a cure for this empty nest syndrome. The empty nest syndrome is Gods way of saying thank you for bringing up your family. Now, the house is all quiet and when I go to the refrigerator, there is actually something in the refrigerator. Sometimes I just open the refrigerator door and stare at the contents. It is wonderful to go to the refrigerator and actually find something in it you can eat. It has been a little difficult for me to say farewell to the 50s. I have enjoyed every year of that decade. I am not prepared to say that I am any wiser but I am prepared to say I am older. And my goal in life is to get older and older. Because, when you stop getting older it is all over. The Bible gives him instructions about getting older. The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head (Proverbs 20:29 KJV). The hoary (grey) head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness (Proverbs 16:31 KJV). I bid a fond farewell to the 50s. Thanks for the memories. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, 1471 Pine Road, Ocala, FL 34472. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

All-Star team finishes 0-3 in tourney TAMPA It was real it was fun, but in the end it wasnt real fun. The Major Girls softball team came up short in a harsh weekend full of rain. It was once again almost the story of The Little Engine That Could, but it wasnt as the All-Star team was swept in the three-game sectional. Friday, the opening day of the tournament, the weather was fair as Dunnellon competed against Seminole Little League. The contest started off with each team stranding a couple of base runners, but with neither team capitalizing until the third inning when the Seminoles scored on an error, coupled with another walked batter and a pair of hits, staking itself to a 2-0 lead. A couple of innings and a rain delay, Dunnellon entered the bottom of the sixth inning, trailing 6-0. A loss on their opening day of the tournament would not be a very good start. Dunnellon had its back against the wall and it answered back. The only question left was, was it too late? Gillian Heinritz started the frame with a walk and two batters later Michelle Ruiz also reached on a single. She finished 3-for3. Now the bases were loaded and there were two outs. Jillian Perez got her first hit of the night, a two-run single. Dunnellons Cassandra Lawler added an RBI single, trimming the deficit to 63. She, too, finished 3-for3. However, it wasnt enough as Dunnellon could not mount a rally in the seventh inning, falling 6-3, despite outhitting Seminole, 8-4. However, its said defense wins championships. Dunnellons pitcher Gillian threw a complete game, striking out 11 and allowing six unearned runs as Dunnellons defense committed six errors. In a must-win position Saturday, Dunnellon played West Pasco. Dunnellon gave up a run in the bottom of the first after a walk and an error. Then, just when Dunnellon had made a couple of strong defensive plays to get momentum on its side in top of the second, they were hit by a nearly eight-hour rain delay. Returning to Ed Radice Park to complete the game, it wasnt until the top of the third inning that Dunnellon would finally answer as it found itself trailing, 3-0. Brooke Saez and Michelle Ruiz opened the inning with back-to-back singles, when Cheyenne Ingalls RBI single plated Dunnellons first run. Briana Williams followed with an RBI groundout to trim Dunnellons deficit to 3-2. Dunnellon struck again in the fourth, tying the game at 3-all and taking a lead when Heinritz, who had tripled, scored on Saez ground out for a 4-3 lead. Though the lead held through the fifth inning, West Pasco struck in the bottom of the sixth. With runners on second and third, a passed ball allowed West Pasco to tie the game at 4-all. West Pasco capped its rally when the runner on second scored on an error, handing Dunnellon a 5-4 loss. Dunnellon once again outhit its opponent, 7-5. Saez and Ingalls led Dunnellons offense. Saez was 2-for-3 with an RBI. Ingalls was 1-for-2 with an RBI. Defensively, Dunnellon committed three errors and once again all the runs that it allowed were unearned. Cassandra Lawler threw a complete game for Dunnellon. Entering Sundays finale, Dunnellon was not in the position it was hoping for. Their hopes for a championship game were gone and, eventually after four innings, their part in the tournament had ended. Dunnellon was beaten 10-0 in a mercy-rule contest. It was the first day they actually didnt have to deal with a rain delay. Dunnellon was held hitless, as Heinritz threw a complete game, striking out five, but allowing four walks. The Little Engine That Could came up short in a tough series of games throughout a long, rainy weekend. Dunnellon did big things on paper, but didnt catch the breaks when it needed them.

Rountree said. The question is does the (county comprehensive land use) code say they cant have a hearing or does the code say they cant grant a permit. As I read the code, they cannot grant the permit, and you (Brooks) said they cannot hold a hearing. Rountree said Yankeetowns concern is when they get a hearing. Bolves said the town had its opportunity at the Levy County Planning Commission and Board of Commissioners hearings. Frank Matthews, Tarmacs attorney, said the public will have an opportunity when the Corps of Engineers holds a hearing and when the countys two commissions consider an excavation permit for the mine. Another suit, filed by the Withlacoochee Area Residents Association (WAR), contends the county violated its Comprehensive Land Use plan by allowing the mining operation in an environmentally sensitive area and before the Corps permit was approved. The City of Crystal River has joined the WAR suit because of concerns about the amount of truck traffic the mine would send through the middle of the city 52 percent of 500 trucks making daily round trips when the mine starts operation in 2014. A city official testified at the planning and county commission hearings the truck traffic would have an adverse impact on the citys tourism, quality of life and economy. A hearing on the countys filing for summary judgment in the WAR suit has been set for September.Lou Elliott Jones is the Editor of the Chiefland Citizen. Their specialty sub is The Gaetano with chicken cutlet, Capicola, Mozzarella Cheese and Roasted Red Peppers. They also offer breakfast sandwiches, homemade deserts, soups and a hot meal of the day, such as Baked Ziti, Lasagna or whatever mood hits, Thinners said. Chips, potato salad, coleslaw and pasta salad are the side dishes offered. Were going to do it better and more consistent than anyone, Chinners said of their subs, which feature Top Choice meats. Gaetanos Subs is open from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. daily. Besides the variety of sandwiches it offers, the restaurant is offering delivery to businesses within two miles of its eatery. However, orders must be $25 or more to take advantage of the delivery option. Chinners said as business increases, she and her brother will add a driver and expand the delivery service. Chinners noted cooking for the public isnt much different than cooking for her family. She said Sunday family dinners have always been a big thing. Instead of doing it one day a week, I do it seven days a week now, she explained. Gaetanos Subs accepts cash or credit cards. Orders can be called in at 465-9103 or faxed in at 465-9109. for the needy; people enjoy doing things for the community. Everybody came together, it was a good event. Certainly, people looked forward to taking aim at Mayor Fred Ward, Police Chief Joanne Black and Officer Mike Miley from the Dunnellon Police Department or Lt. Troy Slattery of Dunnellon Fire Rescue. We had a blast; I had a good time, I was glad to be invited, Slattery said. It looked like they had a good turnout, I think it was a good opportunity to be more on a personal level rather than a professional level. It went for a good cause. (Annie Johnsons) has been around for as long as I can remember; it was a great honor and great privilege to be a part of it. Miley, one of the many hecklers to hang from the perch above the water, heckled the young and old. Decked out in water wings, flippers, snorkel and mask with a homemade shirt DPD Dive Team, Miley carried a water gun with him into the tank, taking aim at those who took their best shots. Everybody had a good time, Avina said. Knowing that people could joke with you about getting dunked, even when the little ones hit the target and didnt trigger it, someone was getting wet; it was just a good time. Avina said they hope to make this an annual event, even tweaking the date of it. Currently, she said, theyre in the discussion stages of hosting an event at the Annie Johnson Thrift Store during Jazz Up. Thered be more people there, more volunteers, a bigger amount of people, she explained, noting there was a steady crowd all day Saturday. There are more people in one area. She said most of those who volunteered their time in the dunk tank offered their services again. 10 Riverland News, Thursday, July 21, 2011 Peace Lutheran Church Missouri Synod Rev. Terry L.

Officials to tweak plan, schedule another meeting The crowd was small, but vocal Thursday night as Marion County planners hosted a public hearing on the scenic road situation in the county, including the proposed master plan. Almost all speakers were in favor of expanding the scenic road designations in the county, and one went so far as to propose that the process be taken away from county commissioners. Justin Ryan, transportation planner for the countys Growth Management Departments Planning Division, conducted the meeting, which was originally scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m., but adjourned shortly after 7 after all those who wished to speak had been heard. Only 13 members of the public attended. The most radical proposal came from Steve Ellis of Southwest 75th Terrace, who suggested that decisions on scenic roads be removed from the county commissioners lap. He proposed a ranking by a committee of the recommended scenic roads, and that the top roads on the list be submitted to the voters in a referendum. That would take the political nature away. Commissioners recently decided to remove some roads from the list, with the most controversial being part of Shady Road, also known as County Road 475A and, in some places, Southwest 27th Avenue. Darlene Weesner, who said she started the scenic road efforts in 1985, said she was very, very concerned with recent actions. She pointed out the advantage to eco-tourism of having the designated roads. She criticized the County Commission for its actions, saying: There have been no challenges to it up to now. She added, Were spending time doing something that isnt really necessary. She criticized the development of the now completed 31st Street extension. We could have had a nice two-lane parkway for less money, and used the remaining funds for something else. Michelle Shearer of Southwest 85th Street, who is a member of the Scenic Road Advisory Committee, said that there have been very few negative comments. The majority of Marion County apparently is fine with the ordinance. She said the county should Keep the ordinance as it is. She said there is an economic impact of a scenic road on real estate. People feel security buying on scenic roads. She noted that Shady Road needs to keep that two-lane charm. When you are riding you are able to take in both sides of the road. Shearer added: The scenic roads keep Marion County from becoming a South Florida city. Susan Woods of Northwest 90th Avenue spoke about her road. We were hoping it would be a scenic road by now. Ellis spoke again, saying he books a gathering of people who come to drive the roads. If we screw around with these roadways, they wont come back. Once you mess it up its gone. He said he had booked 550 room nights at a local hotel this past March. Gordon Johnson, from Oxford in Sumter County, is a photographer who brings friends from Finland to ride around the roads in Marion County. He reminded staffers that 100 years ago mining was proposed in the Grand Canyon, and asked people to imagine what it would have done to tourism out there. Another hearing will be planned after more work is done on the plan. Meanwhile, information on scenic roads can be accessed at www.marioncountyfl.org/ Planning/scenic_roads.aspx.
