WHATS HAPPENING City moves forward in grant process City officials took another step forward in their pursuit to apply for a Community Development Block Grant as they race to beat the clock with the Aug. 15 deadline slightly more than two weeks away. At Mondays City Council, officials OKd the Citizens Advisory Task Force recommendation to attempt to secure $650,000 grant through the Florida Community of Development Affairs. Mondays meeting of the Citizens Advisory Task Force was the first of two required public meetings the board must have prior to the deadline date. One question raised by the Citizens Advisory Task Force was how much of the grant would cover the project of installing a 12-inch water main to a pair of county-owned wells at the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport and run it five miles west through a pair of proposed subdivisions to nearby Dunnellon Heights. About $550,000 of the grant money would be used toward the actual project once engineering and grant management fees were paid for, according to Fred Fox of Fred Fox Enterprises. His firm, which is assisting with the application process, would be paid $52,000 to manage the grant. The city will cover the rest National Night Out Tuesday Cook-out will be part of event Once again, the Dunnellon Police Department will hit the streets in effort to reach the community. And for the second straight year, the men and women in blue are asking the community to join them as the Dunnellon Police Department participates in the National Night Out, which will be from 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 2. The event will kick off at Ernie Mills Park where law enforcement officials will great citizens before canvassing Blue Cove, Dunnellon Heights, The Granada, the Historic District and Vogt Springs. Unlike last year where officers joined with residents to walk the neighborhoods, citizens wont have to worry about walking in stifling August temperatures as the police department will take them through neighborhoods on hayrack rides. Office Bruce Robbie Arnold, the co-coordinator of the event, said the Chinese students arrive in town More than 30 Chinese youth, ages 10 to 12, as well as several instructors arrived in Dunnellon on Wednesday, July 20. They spent much of the day on the Rainbow and Withlacoochee rivers, seeing the sights and sounds of the wildlife. After their river tour, the students met their host families at Dunnellon Christian Academy. On Thursday, they hosted a formal welcome celebration with an old-fashioned American supper a potluck dinner. I am just really looking forward to it, said Judy Stepler, who along with her husband, Ron, will host two girls during their visit. We just felt like God was guiding us in this direction to host these girls. Were really, really excited. Stepler said when the girls Gao Rouhan and Jin Dong Yi Xuan are not involved in classes or their day trips, she and husband will entertain the girls with trips to see the manatees. Im sure after they visit with their friends after the first weekend, theyll come back with some ideas for fun things to do, Stepler explained. For Gao Rouhan, shes excited about her first trip to the U.S. She said shes looking forward to staying with the Steplers during her visit. Theyre like grandparents, she said with a smile. Im looking forward to American food. Jan and Curt Reed, Rio Vista residents, are excited to be a part of the program again. Theyve hosted students before, most recently from Finland. As a part of this program, theyll serve as the host home to the instructors who accompanied the students from China. Weve done it before and loved it, Jan exclaimed. Were very excited; wed recommend it to anyone.

Penn Station Deli & Grill recently opened its doors at 20583 W. Pennsylvania Ave., the site which has recently housed Halligans Bar & Grill and the Levee. While the name might suggest a nod to Dunnellons historic ties with the railroad, its actually a nod to the landmarks closest to the establishment. Since the business is close to the both the police and fire stations and is on Pennsylvania Avenue, Christine Lugo simply shortened the name to Penn and chose station. We wanted something simple, she explained of her and her husbands, Carlos, first foray into business. While it might be their first business venture, being in restaurants has been a part of their life for a long time. Carlos has been a cook for the past 25 years, working in New York and Florida, as well as various other states. Chrstine has been a server and was a manager at a Fort Lauderdale-based Dennys for four years, prior to the couple relocating to nearby Citrus Springs. Since moving to the area, they had scouted several locations to open their own eatery before settling on their current spot. Theyve spent the better the part of two months renovating the site in attempt to liven it up. Weve put fresh paint on the wall to lighten it up, Christine explained. It was pretty dark in here, but now it stands out. Theyre hopeful their food does, too. The Lugos plan to specialize in New York style sandwiches both cold and hot and Cuban foods, one of Carlos areas of expertise. The restaurant will serve other dishes as well and is open for breakfast. Everything is going to be fresh, the meat, the vegetables, the bread, Christine explained, noting the couple is partnering with The Bakery for all of its fresh baked goods. Because the Lugos know the value of customer service from their years in the business, theyre placing a high priority on it at Penn Station. We know people expect good service, Christine explained. Theres nothing worse than going somewhere and not enjoying the experience, whether its the wait staff or the food. We believe weve got a great experienced staff that will help us meet our needs. For now, the couple is not opening the bar. We want to establish the restaurant first, Christine explained. Maybe down the road, well expand. But for now, we want to get a feel for what business is going to be like. For more information, call 465-1212.

River views Traffic near Blue Run Park on county road is a disasterWhoever designed the traffic pattern and parking at the tubers exit needs to see the traffic jam that is happening there. It does not help that the van with the trailer pulls in when the tiny parking lot is full and sticks out into the road interfering with oncoming traffic. One day his canoes and rafts will be splattered all over County Road 484, especially when he pulls out into traffic and his trailer is behind him inching out into oncoming traffic. That set up is too big for the tubers exit period. I have had twice to hit my brakes as he pulls out with trailer lagging behind; he should be sure no traffic is approaching and he can safely pull out. Also only two handicapped spaces ... why? Bad planning again! Really, it all looks pretty, but pretty does not delete a problem; people walking along side the highway hauling rafts and floats close to the highway, kids excited to be at the river not thinking of any danger. After all they are kids and running as they are in a hurry to get to the water, one slip, one mistake and a day never forgotten. The highway is dangerous when little minds are charged up. All those cars parked on both sides of C.R. 484 where is regulated parking? Off the highway, so they do not need to cross the street from in between vehicles is safer one would think. Mary Hacker Dunnellon Dunnellon city officials misusing red-light cameras The city of Dunnellon has been misusing red light cameras along U.S. 41 in order to bolster its revenue to pay for other monetary misadventures such as Greenlight Communications. Granted, drivers should not run red lights and endanger the safety of others. However, the city is misinterpreting State Statutes pertaining to the use of red-light camera evidence. FS 316.075 states that vehicular traffic facing a steady red signal shall stop before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection or, if none, then before entering the intersection The city is ticketing drivers who pass painted stop bars when, in fact, drivers could pass the stop bars and still stop before entering the crosswalk or intersection. FS 316.0083 states: a notice of violation and a traffic citation may not be issued for failure to stop at a red light if the driver is making a righthand turn in a careful and prudent manner at an intersection where right-hand turns are permissible. It would seem that careful and prudent would simply mean not to interfere with other rightful traffic Todays generation of children missing out Spies like us R emember, I told you my mom was a spy for the O.S.S. back in the 40s. Well, her spy brain is at it again. She is the quiet type. Always thinking and watching. She is suspicious of everything. Mom likes to dive below the surface. Either, she is a very good spy, or has a vivid imagination. Here is a snippet of a recent conversation we shared. Mom: Why is Frank (my nephew) going to Asia? Kathleen: To visit friends. Mom: Thats his cover story. Kathleen: Huh? His what? Mom: That is what he tells you. I think your cousin Sherry recruited him for the C.I.A. Kathleen: Mom, for the last time Sherry is not in the C.I.A. Mom: Bah! Then explain why she lived in every war zone as a teacher. Kathleen: It was pure coincidence? I am not sure either one of us believed that. Could Frank possibly be a spy? He is 29 and very well traveled. He and his wife, Uma, went to Peru on their honeymoon. They traveled to India, Turkey and Istanbul for vacations. They could have gone to those places at Epcot for half the price. I guess Disney isnt their style. Uma is a doctor and went to China to teach for a month. They backpacked through Italy and France. For the past three weeks, Frank has been in Cambodia, Vietnam and Bangkok. He was visiting friends from college. Really! There are posts on his Facebook Page. In one photo, he is in a shop being fitted for a suit. He looks very James Bondish. Oops, maybe that isnt a good example. Ill say he looks very dapper. Does all this traveling to exotic places make him a spy or is he just a tourist? In the photo of him and his friends at a restaurant, he sure looks like he knows how to handle chopsticks! Boy that is all the proof you need. I admit I like to travel. That doesnt make me a spy. Although, Vietnam is not high on my list of places to visit, Hawaii is more like it. I would love to retrace some of the steps my Dad took when he served in World War II. I grew up during the Vietnam War era. I saw enough of it on the nightly news. I am sure Franks visit was extremely different than my brothers, Kevin, time that he spent there as a Marine. What a world! One relative goes to Vietnam to fight a war and 30 years later another goes there on vacation. I wonder who had more fun. My brother, Kevin, never talks about the war. Never, ever! I would be curious to know if her would ever go back to visit. These days the only traveling he does is to exotic California to see his grandchildren. My nieces, Katie and Holly, also have the travel bug. Russia, Greece and Switzerland are a few of the places they have visited. Its funny. Some of my family will not step foot on a plane while others would catch the next available flight to anywhere. One brother would be happy to never leave his house. I can go either way. Flying used to be fun. Now it is a hassle and expensive. Star Trek had it right. If I could beam myself somewhere, I would travel the world. As for the spy business, it is not for me. Take away my chocolate and I would crack. It is horrible to say, but I would give away state secrets for a slice of chocolate cake. Heck, I would even tell my weight for a Hersheys Kiss. The spy business is not in my blood. I cant speak for Sherry or Frank. When it comes to spying, mom says it takes one to know one! The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

The 2012 membership drive year has begun. Currently the Post membership consists of Veterans from World War II, the Korean and Vietnam wars, Lebanon and Grenada, Panama, and the First Gulf War. The American Legion is fervently reaching out to all veterans of The Gulf War and the War on Terrorism from its beginning Dec. 20, 1990, to the present time. These new veterans are all eligible to join the American Legion. The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nations largest veterans organization, committed and dedicated to mentoring and sponsorship of youth programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting a strong national security, and continued devotion and assistance to our fellow service members and veterans. This devotion and continued service to our service members and veterans includes activities such as: Troop Support Services, Legion Riders, college scholarships to high school students, Veterans Administration services, job assistance programs, Crime Resistance, Missing Childrens Programs, Drug Abuse programs, Teenage Suicide Prevention programs, Special Olympics, the National Emergency Fund, Flag Honor Guard, Sons of the American Legion, Childrens Miracle Network affiliation, Boy Scouts, ROTC, JROTC, Young Marines, Boys State and Nation, Blood Donor program, Family Support Network and Heroes to Hometowns, to name a few. The most beneficial program for veterans is the American Legions continued assistance program to veterans concerning Veterans Administration issues. Your local Post service officer is highly trained in answering and helping the new veteran member resolve Veterans Administration benefit issues. Facing the Veterans Administration alone can be taxing. But with the help of the worlds largest veterans organization, many veterans have realized benefits they did not know they were eligible for. It is the new group of veterans that can benefit greatly from the American Legion, as they are just returning home and faced with reentering civilian society. Some may need veteran benefits immediately. Others may suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD), which does not appear until they have been stateside for a period of time. Your local American Legion Post can help you identify and fill those needs. Current Post members are working diligently recruiting new members, but unless the new veteran is aware of the services offered to the veteran, they may not know where to look or go for assistance. If you are a new veteran of the Gulf War or the War on Terrorism, just home from a tour of duty, recently separated from your military unit, feel assured you can turn to your local American Legion Post for help, camaraderie and fellowship. For membership information, call American Legion Post 58 at 489-4453, or your Frank Strobl, Post 58 membership chairman, 352-598-1231 for information regarding services, upcoming activities and membership. American Legion seeks members from new wars P erhaps the greatest irony of life is when it comes to aging. As youngsters, were so eager to grow up, learn how to drive, not worry about having to attend school and do whatever it is adults did. Funny, now as an adult, I cherish my childhood. Summers were a blast, up at sunrise rounding up friends for early morning baseball games, followed by an afternoon at the swimming pool if it was too hot, back at the ballpark to watch games, capped off by an evening of hide-and-seek, capture the flag or whatever game we could agree on with the dozens of neighborhood kids. And I kid you not when I say dozens. Our neighborhood consisted of a two-square mile radius. There werent many nights spent at home during the summer months, unless it was raining or, perish the thought, grounded. However, if the old man was at work, we were free, because we knew how to annoy the warden enough to grant us an early parole. Just because it was summer, our mother wanted us out of her hair and not under her feet. We relished being outside. We didnt camp out in front of the television, a computer or a PS3 or Xbox 360 for hours on end. On the flip side, parents didnt worry about what their children were doing. They knew their neighbors and if there was trouble, they knew about it before we did. They were well connected. Now while were quick to assail todays youth for being lazy, out of shape and minds full of mush, we must remember that because of todays society, theyll never have a childhood like you or I. Honestly, I feel bad for them. The memories they miss out from, the bumps, bruises and broken bones. Seriously, my sister and brother, the kids I grew up with in our neighborhood still cherish those days as if they were yesterday. Granted, Im not sure my body could handle another Sunday NFL game. Yes, we played in the NFL at an early age. For those of you scratching your head, it was the Neighborhood Football League. We ruled our neighborhood like royalty, or so we thought. Still, we knew the rules. However, in todays world, kids cannot run around for hours without parental supervision. Thanks in large part to the vast array of child-molesting perverts who prey on unsuspecting youth. Parents plunk their kids down in front of the boob tube, hand em the latest technological gadgets and tend to their own affairs. A report I heard recently indicated parents should schedule an hour of unorganized outdoor activity. I couldnt help but chuckle at the notion of scheduling outdoor play time. Seriously? Schedule outdoor play time? I can hear my mother now and see the look on her face. She would roll her eyes at the report and send us packing. Unless you break something or are bleeding, I dont want to you see until lunch. Its almost as funny as the news reports in the 80s when there was a large salmonella scare as news agencies urged adults not to let children lick the spoons of fresh cookie batter. My grandmother, God bless her heart, wasnt going to stand for that. What good is it to make cookies if my grandchildren cant lick the spoons? she queried, handing off two spoons to my brother and I. It is called taste tasting. Man, only to be a kid again. Kathleen Wallace Jeff Bryan Editor See LETTERS page 5 FRANK STROBL For the Riverland News
and pedestrians. In order to make the most of a citation opportunity, however, the city attorney fabricated an artificial meaning for careful and prudent to include a requirement of 10 mph or less as detected by lasers embedded in the highway 10 to 15 feet before the stop bar. This is a senseless requirement since the stop bars are arbitrarily located and differ from 20 feet short of the northbound intersection at Brooks Street to 80 feet short of the southbound intersection at Powell Road. For instance, passing over the southbound laser detectors at 10 mph and stopping before entering the Powell Road intersection would only require 5 percent braking. Another bone of contention is the short duration of yellow lights at the three intersections involved. The city had set the duration at 3.6 seconds, the minimum recommended by the Institute of Transportation Engineers for 35 mph. The Institute also recommends more than the minimum as a safety measure. The city also mistakenly assumed that the speed limit in front of Walmart was 35 mph when, in fact, it has been 45 mph since 2002. When this was pointed out in a public meeting the city manager ordered the Walmart yellow light duration to be increased to the minimum of 4.3 seconds for 45 mph. It would seem that anyone ticketed for running the red light at Walmart before the duration resetting on May 18 would have an arguable case. Further, to this matter, is the fact the Department of Transportation requires a larger traffic infraction detector warning sign placed at a greater distance from the intersection for a 45 mph speed than for a 35 mph speed. Dunnellon is in violation of this standard. The city of Dunnellon has no history of accidents to justify its use of red-light cameras and it certainly seems to be misinterpreting state statutes to bolster its revenue. Proper interpretation of these statutes should give reason for many drivers to dispute their citations. For further information, contact redlight158@hot mail.com. Burt Eno, PhD, PE, retired Dunnellon Debt problem belongs to all politicians Re: What are Democrats planning? July 21 letter The letter exemplifies the half-truths, and in some cases the fear mongering, Republicans and Democrats alike are voicing around the issues of the debt ceiling and the reduction of our national debt. First of all, it is not just the Democrats that are locked in a debate about the debt ceiling it is the Democrats, the Republicans, the Tea Party faction of the House of Representatives and the president. As long as the debt ceiling is not raised, the government will not have enough money to pay all of its financial obligations, nor will it be able to borrow money to pay the obligations. Beginning in August, roughly $125 billion dollars of monthly obligations will have to go unpaid. The Bipartisan Policy Center estimates that August federal government revenues received could be exhausted on a scant few obligations interest on the debt, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment insurance and defense contractors. Unpaid obligations could include the military, veterans, federal workers and tax refunds. A decision will have to be made on which obligations are left unpaid. The consequences of not raising the debt limit will negatively impact the domestic and global stock markets during a delicate recovery from the recession; and possibly reduce the credit rating of the United States, costing the country billions of dollars of increased interest on the national debt over the next decade and inflicting higher interest rates on mortgages and other loans to Americans. The fact of the matter is that the national debt is due to costs that Congress, Republican and Democrat, has approved over many years, and it has grown from $1.8 trillion during the Reagan years to $10.4 trillion during the George W. Bush years to $14 trillion in the first 2 1/2 years of the Obama presidency. It is Congresss job to resolve this fiscal problem without laying budget cuts solely on the backs of the middle class and poor while advocating tax decreases for the wealthiest Americans. The budget problems faced by Congress and the Obama administration are further exacerbated by the make-up of the annual budget deficit. The popular Republican mantra is to lay the majority of the budget deficit on the Obama presidency. This is simply not accurate. A Center on Budget and Policy Priorities analysis, based on Congressional Budget Office estimates, shows that by far the three largest contributors to the current and future projected budget deficits through 2019 are due to the impact of the recession, the Bush tax cuts in 2001 and 2003, and the unfunded wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. These three factors were in play before Obama took office, but he now owns them. The letters characterization of anyone, let alone Democrats, stealing from the Social Security Trust fund is an irresponsible and nave statement. The trust fund was designed to invest its revenue in nonnegotiable Treasury bonds and United States securities backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government (note the potential impact of the U.S. failing to pay its obligations). Democratic and Republican administrations have used the trust fund assets for other government needs virtually since the creation of Social Security. When Social Security can no longer cover payments with incoming revenue, the bonds and securities must be redeemed, and the government must increase taxes, reduce spending and/or borrow money. This is the problem that Congress has left unresolved for many years. Lets urge our representatives, senators and the president to resolve these problems with the greater good of our nation and its citizens as the preeminent consideration.

They look calm, but you never can be sure. Moreover, at this juncture of my life I am in no mood for taking chances. Just the other day the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage said to me rather sarcastically, How does it feel to be 60-something? I knew she was having too much fun with this so I retorted by saying, I feel like two 30-yearolds. Oh, no, she moaned. I cant handle more than one of you. Ha! Ha! Ha! In her old age, she has not lost any of her sense of humor. I was hoping. I am taking it rather careful, though. I have heard all the rumors about what happens to a person once they pass the 60 mark. For myself, I am determined to enjoy to the fullest every day I live from this day forward regardless of who I annoy. And I do have a list for this. Some things, I am finding out, are quite true. Just the other night I discovered one of those rumors to be true. I now know why older men go to the bathroom so often during the night. I had just gone to bed and started my evening dance with the Sandman. As I approached the shores of oblivion, I had the urge to go to the bathroom. I sat up in bed, adjusted my nightcap, put on my slippers, stood up and put on my bathrobe. In somewhat of a daze I headed for the bathroom. Once I got into the bath6 Riverland News, Thursday, July 28, 2011 To Advertise in the Church Directory Call 489-2731 For More Information Dunnellon Seventh-day Adventist Church Welcome To Our Services Hwy. 41 & Hwy. 40 Saturday Sabbath School . 9:30 AM Sermon . . . 11:00 AM Tuesday Bible Study . . 7:00 PM For more information: 352-489-3455 www.dunnellonsdachurch.com 0008FHT 0008KOP Christ-Centered Bible -Believing SUNDAYS 10 am . .

room, I closed the door behind me, turned on the light and stood there. For a moment, I did not know where I was and then I could not remember why I was where I was. I thought for a moment and then turned around, walked back to my bed, took off my bathrobe, removed my slippers and tucked myself back into bed. I dozed off for a moment and then, all of a sudden, it occurred to me why I went to the bathroom. So, I sat up in bed, adjusted my nightcap, put on my slippers, stood up and put on my bathrobe. In somewhat of a daze I headed for the bathroom. I closed the door and tried to turn on the light only to discover I was in the closet. Extricating my body from the closet, I headed once more in the direction of the bathroom. This time I found the bathroom. I closed the door, turn on the light and looked in the mirror wondering why I was in the bathroom. I lathered up my face and shaved. I left the bathroom and headed back for bed, removed my slippers and bathrobe and tucked myself snuggly under the sheets. Just as I was dozing off, I remembered why I wanted to go to the bathroom so urgently. I sat up in bed, adjusted my nightcap, put on my slippers, stood up and put on my bathrobe. In somewhat of a daze I headed for the bathroom. It took me a little longer to get to the bathroom this time but as soon as I opened the door, the light went on. In the bathroom was a quart of milk, a pitcher of iced tea, the makings of a salad and some luncheon meat. I poured myself a glass of iced tea, slowly drank it and then headed back for bed. As I snuggled myself back into bed, I heard the person on the other side of the bed moan and mumbled something, You werent in the kitchen were you? No, I said rather sleepily, I was in the bathroom. I soon fell asleep and no sooner did I fall asleep than I awoke with an urge to go to the bathroom. I adjusted my nightcap, put on my slippers, stood up, put on my bathrobe, and made my way toward the bathroom. This time, when I opened the door the light did not go on so I had to switch the light on myself. I stood there, looked in the mirror, picked up my toothbrush and toothpaste and began brushing my teeth. I gargled good and long with mouthwash, turned off the light and headed back for bed. From the other side of the bed I heard another moan, Were you brushing your teeth? No, I muttered incoherently, I got a drink of tea from the kitchen. You shouldnt drink tea before you go to bed, itll make you go to the bathroom. I soon fell asleep but was awakened with a very urgent need to go to the bathroom. In a panic I stumbled out of bed, could not find my slippers, my bathrobe was nowhere to be found but I had to go to the bathroom. The next thing I remember the alarm clock was ringing and it was seven oclock in the morning. I still do not know if I ever went to the bathroom but now I know why older men go to the bathroom so often during the night. That morning in my devotions, I read from the Psalms. I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread (Psalm 37:25 KJV). I am thinking this 60something is going to require some fancy footwork.

of the cost, explained Fox, noting the city would likely have to pay between $100,000 to $150,000 to complete the project. That estimated figure does not include the $120,000-plus in fees the Council agreed to pay Kimley-Horn & Associates for a preliminary engineering study because the grant requires the city be shovel ready when applying for the funds. City officials also struck a deal on a proposal to purchase bulk potable water from the county. However, that deal, also approved Monday, might have hit a snag when County Commissioner Charlie Stone addressed the Council after the OK. As part of the agreement, which the County Commission has yet to approve, the city sought to have capital charges waived. I have problems with that, he explained, noting county officials would vote on the agreement Tuesday, Aug. 2. Its going to be tough to do it. Our utility customers would have to pick that up and thats unfair to them. They cant afford to do it. Mary Ann Hilton, a city resident, and Burt Eno, PhD, a Rainbow Springs resident, spoke out against the city pursuing the grant. Harold Horn, the citys development director, noted at the Citizens Advisory Task Force meeting officials are considering avoiding running the water line along the easement on County Road 484 and hoping to acquire rights to run the main in an alternative location. Were opposed to the easement along the road, Horn said. That would not contribute to the best interest of the residents, Hilton explained, noting Dunnellon Heights does not have paved roads. Its an impossible cost of doing so especially to pay for the infrastructure of two pieces of land that are proposed developments, one of which is in litigation. Submitting this as desired is the worse thing you can do for the city. Eno explained city officials would be better off approving a study to locate leaks in its current water system and correcting that to improve water flow to Dunnellon Heights, which council members countered was their reasoning for pursuing the grant. This is for the sake of development, probably for Rainbow River Ranches and Blue Run Ranch, Eno countered. My concerns are not for any sort of development, Councilwoman Penny Fleeger said. My concerns are for those in Dunnellon Heights; we cannot get decent water pressure to that area. That is our goal. Vice Mayor F.C. Stark agreed. They dont have sufficient water pressure there, he said, basing his knowledge on his career as a firefighter who responded to calls in the area. I can guarantee you they dont have proper pressure in that area. About proposed growth in the area Stark said it will happen in time. Its gonna happen, he said. You either control it or you dont. You just cant say no development. If you do this town is going to go away like so many others in Florida. Its a fact of life. Burt its going to happen. Its that simple. We wont see any development there in our lifetime, not in this economy. In other action, the council: Approved sending a code enforcement notice of violation to the special magistrate, who will decide if Roy J. Felvers property at 20717 Walnut St. should be demolished. According to city officials, attempts to contact Felver have been made, but no word has been received back from the property owner. Approved the 2011 certification of taxable value for the Fiscal Year 2012. The proposed millage rate is 7.1408, higher than last years figure of 6.9101. A public hearing has been scheduled for Sept. 12 with the final public hearing slated for Sept. 26. Approved the Utility Delinquent Penalty Ordinance, meaning those on the citys water system will have to pay their bill in full on the 15th of each month before financial penalties are incurred. Approved purchase agreements with Power & Tel for $117,100 for field equipment for Greenlight Communications and with the Galloway Group for $13,605.34 for handholes. No update was provided about when the city is expected to receive the fiber cable it needs for the project. Approved resolution 2011-12, SWFWMD Community Education Grant Application. The city is looking to secure up to $5,000 in grant funding to place educational signs at Blue Run Park. Approved an agreement with the Edward Byrne Memorial Jag Grant. The Dunnellon Police Department is attempting to secure $32,500 in funds to purchase items related to community events. Approved two agreements with CSX Transportation for facility encroachments. The deals are related to the citys installation of its fiber to the home program. emy in the mornings and their afternoons and some weekends visiting various spots throughout the state, sharpening their English skills and learning American culture. Among the various locales theyll visit include Gainesville, Rainbow Springs State Park and St. Augustine. Oh, and before they return to China, theyll make the trek to Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando, once theyve completed their 2 1/2 weeks of schooling. However, theyll focus on their studies now and once thats finished, staff, students and host families will celebrate with a graduation ceremony Aug. 4 at Dunnellon Christian Academy. (The students) are very excited, Pam Lange, program director, said. The families just did a wonderful job with signs and welcoming the students. While here, the students are required to speak English. At the graduation ceremony, its more of a talent show where theyll get to put into practice what theyve been learning, Lange explained. We call it action learning. Everyone will get to see what theyve been learning while theyve been here.

Minimally Invasive Surgery Dunnellon YERDS win awards Yearbook staff participates in workshop GAINESVILLE What happens when you mix 73 students from 19 schools, 12 advisers, yearbooks, balloons, beach balls, and silly songs and cheers? You get YERDs, short for YEarbook neRDs! For Dunnellon High School, they are award-winning YERDs. When six Dunnellon High School students attended the Yearbook Connection Yearbook University Summer Workshop at Oak Hall School in Gainesville from July 18 to 20, they learned a lot, worked hard, had fun and earned some awards. The six students had to meet at 7 a.m. in order to get to Gainesville on time each day. It wasnt easy getting up that early, but my kids still got a lot accomplished. They even did some homework, Julie Mancini, Dunnellon yearbook adviser, said, who has attended the workshop for more than a dozen years. Two of the six students from Dunnellon have been to workshop before while the other four are new to yearbook. The workshop began with orientation day. The group was led by professor Steven Wallace of the Yearbook Connection through an activity called True Colors. The students had to decide if they were blue, orange, gold or green. Each color stood for a different set of personality traits. The main purpose of the activity is to learn that it takes all types of people working together to accomplish a task, and also that advisers should take into account a persons strengths when assigning tasks. It was easy to see how the different color groups behave when given a task, because the groups were tasked with creating a poster that outlined their wants, needs, joys and desires. The students spent the rest of day one dreaming their yearbook theme, learning graphic design basics and then learning to transfer their designs onto the computer. Day Two was spirit day. Each school had to get up and do a cheer. This was followed by a group activity, which involved beach balls. Each ball had 50 questions on it, and the person who caught the ball had to answer the question under his/her right thumb. After answering, the group had to ask follow-up questions. The students learned about interviewing during this process. The yearbook workshop was very helpful with teaching the newcomers things. We had a lot of fun working with everyone, said senior Brittany Bennett, who is about to begin her first yearbook on the staff. After the beach ball activity got everyone up and moving, the students attended sessions about photography, business and marketing, and writing. In addition, there were some break-out sessions for editors and intensive photography. In the editors round table, I learned that even from different parts of Florida, other yearbook staffs have the same problems as ours, and it was good getting different perspectives on how to fix them and to make a better book, said senior Amanda Ortman, who will be the editor of the 2012 book. The final activity on day two was learning about, and then creating yearbook spreads, using the Maestro Concept. The Maestro Concept was developed by Buck Ryan of the University of Kentucky in 1993. Linday Puntney, the former Kansas State University yearbook, was the workshops keynote speaker. She explained how she used this team concept with her students. Then the workshop participants broke into groups of three, a writer, a designer and a photographer, and they worked quickly to complete a spread by the days end. It was in this activity that the Dunnellon students were first recognized. The team of Caitlyn Dunning, Sydney Cohen and Brandon Sanchez earned an award for their photography on their spread, even though they were unable to transfer their design onto the computer. The team of Brittany Bennett, Jacob Furr and Amanda Ortman won the overall high school awards. I liked working with people and doing fun stuff. I learned how to put together a spread, and better photography. I would attend again because we learned so much, said Dunning, who is an incoming freshman at Dunnellon High. The workshops final day was graduation day. The day began with lifetimes YERDs explaining how their yearbook experiences shaped their lives. Matt Stamey, a Gainesville Sun photographer and former Kansas State yearbook staff photographer, talked about the journey he has taken in his life as a result of choosing photography. This journey included covering the Saints as they won the Super Bowl, Hurricane Katrina and now Gator football. Yearbook Connection associate Cara Cruce told of her journey from the Palatka High School yearbook staff straight into part-time employment during her pursuit of a graphic design degree from Florida State University. After graduating in December, she began working full time for the Yearbook Connection. Lastly, Steven Wallace explained that he established the Yearbook Connection in the 1990s after being on his high school and college yearbook staffs, and that he would continue to work at his job until it isnt fun anymore. Finally, it was time for the theme presentations. The group was split into two groups; high school and middle school, and the schools began to present their theme development to experts and students alike to get feedback and ideas about how to develop the theme throughout their yearbook. It was here that Dunnellon outshone the competition, earning first place in high school theme excellence. The yearbook staff has decided that the 2012 yearbook theme will be a secret, but they do have this to say: There are so many different ways to approach the idea and I truly think it will be the best yearbook Ive seen. The concept is awesome, senior Brandon Sanchez said. Added Furr, a senior, entering his fourth year of yearbook: Our theme is very sophisticated and mentally stimulating. I liked getting input on our theme, which I love because it is so simple and complicated at the same time, said Ortman. Back into the first days color groups, the students completed one more activity, a telling of yearbook through candy, before participating in the awards ceremony and graduation, complete with decorated caps and diplomas. During graduation, each of the professors offered words of wisdom. Everything you have learned at the workshop and in yearbook class is important, Wallace said in his closing remarks. Cover all students, take outstanding photos, design cool layouts, but dont forget to have fun in the process. Yearbook should be a fun way for you to be involved in your school.

Rainbows End will host the first of three night golf events, said Don Delany, owner of the nine-hole municipal course. The inaugural event tees off Saturday, Aug. 13, with dates scheduled for Sept. 10 and Oct. 8. Cost for the scramble event is $140 per team, but includes a barbeque dinner and the necessary supplies for night golf. All three events will coincide with a full moon. The field for the scramble is being capped at 14 teams, Delany said. Coming up with the idea isnt his, though. Some of the regular players had played in events like this before and wanted us to do it, Delany explained. So after much prodding by his regulars, Delany decided to take the leap. Hes already got the night golf equipment in stock. Now, its a mater of filling the field for the inaugural event. He said hes filling team spots, so if you want to play, get a team together. For now, this is a test run, but if it catches on it could become a regular event when the weather allows. While Williston used to host such events, Delaney is hopeful it will become a popular event because no one else in the immediate area offers night golf. Were really hoping it attracts a different crowd, he said. Maybe couples will come out and make this a date night. It doesnt matter how you play, this is going to be something different. If it catches on as we hope, its certainly something will consider doing on a regular basis, maybe March through November. The event Saturday, Aug. 13, will kick off at 8 p.m. with the barbeque dinner, followed by a 9 oclock tee time. The event, because it is a scramble, will have a shotgun start.
