City proposes slashing budget City officials unveiled their 2012 Fiscal Year budget Monday afternoon during a special workshop as the City Council learned there will be a significant drop in taxes collected this year despite a higher millage rate than a year ago. Despite an almost 29 percent drop in revenues, officials said lay offs will be avoided by reallocating money across the board, most notably salaries. While the budget calls for an overall reduction in salaries in the general budget, city employees wont see a reduction in their paychecks because the reallocations will be picked up by water and sewer enterprise funds as well as the Tax Increment Financing District or Community Redevelopment Area (CRA). This years budget was very difficult, very challenging for Jan and the staff, Lisa Algiere, city manager, told the Council. Were cutting the budget where we can; were trying to avoid not having to lay anyone off. Mayor Fred Ward agreed. We dont look forward to letting people go, he said. We appreciate that. We have to make do with the best we can. The Water Enterprise fund will see a 26.5 percent increase ($47,043) in salaries paid out in the next fiscal year while the Sewer Enterprise fund will pay an extra 18.3 percent ($43,882) in salaries. But its the CRA that will make up the largest reallocaOfficials approve Rio Vista purchase City paying $10 for system The Dunnellon City Council approved an agreement Monday to purchase the Rio Vista wastewater system for $10 as the city will take ownership Friday. The good news for Rio Vista residents is they solved their problem with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, which had placed the owners of the system under a contempt order. Now, the bad news: water and sewer customers will see a significant increase in their water bills now that they are under the umbrella of the citys water and sewer systems. Water and sewer users must pay an extra 25 percent surcharge because they are located outside of the city limits. The additional cost is allowed according to State Statute 180.191(1)(a). In addition to that charge, Rio Vista water users must also pay $185 deposit for connecting to the citys system. For sewer customers, theyll have an extra $20 to $40 per month added to their bill, allowing the city to recoup costs of connecting those users to the citys wastewater system. The extra fee, according to the agreement with Rio Vista, will be incurred for 15 to 20 years to pay until their pro-rata share of the sewer connection is paid in full.

I remember praying to God, If you want me to be a veterinarian, if this is what Youre telling me, Ill take this as a sign if this dog wants me to help, she recalled. By the end of the night, that little pup let her be at his side.

Linda Brown, long an active member of FORS, returned for another term as president. Lindas volunteer involvement at the state park extends back to 1997, shortly after she and husband Carlton, moved to Rainbow Springs. While searching a number of locations for a place to retire, including South Carolina, Georgia and Florida the Browns visited the Rainbow Springs communities. Rainbow Springs State Park was one of the reasons they found this location so desirable. Originally from St. Louis, Mo., Linda graduated from Drury University with a bachelors degree in English and French. After college, she went to work for the National Archives as a trainee, working in St. Louis, Atlanta before transferring to Washington, D.C. Lindas final position prior to retirement was with the National Archives as assistant archivist for Public Programs where she was responsible for exhibitions, educational programs, publications and volunteer programs. What an array of talents to bring to Dunnellons gorgeous state park and its volunteer program. Previously having served as president of FORS from 2002 to 2003, Linda has also served as vice-president (1999 to 2002), membership chair, secretary and continues to actively volunteer at the Headsprings Toll Booth a position she has occupied since 1997. Linda believes that volunteering at the toll booth keeps her abreast of what is happening within the park. She speaks to visitors and knows their feelings how they feel about the park and its services. She also has more opportunity to interact with the Rainbow Springs staff. Linda has spent a great amount of time working with the gardens of Rainbow Springs. During her prior years as president, the Garden Renovation Project was underway. She prepared the second Partnership in Parks grant, including $120,000 of FORS funds and monitored the project through its duration. The gardens can rightfully be called a favorite of Lindas volunteerism, but so can two fantastic annual programs for the community: Santa Over the Rainbow and Cracker Days. The Santa program, Linda says, is a wonderful way to give back to the community and it is amazing to see all of the time and effort spent by volunteers and staff to make this event happen. Cracker Days, another terrific annual event, helps educate the visitors about the history of our area and a Florida most of us never knew. Linda has stepped into her role as president at an important time. For the past 21 years, volunteers have been an integral part of Rainbow Springs State Park. FORS, as well as other volunteer groups, are at a critical junction. According to Linda: Many of our founding members and long-time members are no longer active. With the downturn in the economy and fewer people moving into the area, it is harder to attract new members. Dunnellon is a small community and there are many worthwhile organizations that seek volunteers and only so many (volunteers) to go around. In the short-term, we need to expand our membership base, both with those who are willing to volunteer in FORS operations and for events. We also need people who are willing to step into leadership roles. A Board Development Committee, established and organized by outgoing President Pam Johnson, has begun working on this. We need to focus our efforts in these areas if we are to continue to exist as a viable organization. FORS is a driving force at Rainbow Springs State Park. The mission is, and has always been, about this beautiful state park that the residents are so fortunate to have in their community. When the state purchased the park in 1990, 15 years had passed since the Rainbow Springs Attraction closed its doors for good. Years of debris set a monumental task for the few dedicated members of the local Garden Club that began its regularly scheduled visits to the park. By 1992, the volunteers had made such improvements that the park was allowed to be open to the public on weekends. In 1995, the work of the volunteers, with the combined efforts of the Florida Park Service staff, made opening the park full time a reality. Park Citizen Support Organizations do more than volunteer labor. In the course of their missions, they provide and supplement funding directly to the park. Linda looks forward to meeting and greeting the visitors of the park. She also welcomes and encourages residents to consider spending some of their hours each week volunteering. Whether you have a few hours or a few days, Rainbow Springs State Park is an ideal location to expend physical or mental energy and give back to the community. Watch for information about an upcoming Volunteer Recruitment Fair to be held at the park this autumn. You will learn more about state parks and probably make some new friends in the process. Become a Friend of Rainbow Springs yourself. You will be happy you did! The members of FORS, park staff and volunteers will be happy you did as well.

Stoetzer will speak at library COMMUNITY BRIEFS The Friends of the Dunnellon Public Library are proud to announce that our own hometown author, columnist, storyteller and short-story writer, Duke Stoetzer will describe the Legendary Days of Boomtown Dunnellon at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, in the Dunnellon Public Library Meeting Room as part of the Meet the Author program sponsored by the Friends of the Dunnellon Public Library. Stoetzer has had 53 short stories published in the past 15 years. He won the 1989 Pushcart Prize (national award for best short story fiction writer in a noncommercial publication), which appeared in the Black Hammock Review. Stoetzers tales have appeared in such publications as Granta Magazine, Dawn Valley Press, Quantum Press, Antigonish Review, Penisular Quarterly, West Pacific Magazine4, Rosebud (Wisconsin & Idaho), Southern Review, Allegheny Literary and many others. He wrote the column, Tales of a Two-River Town, for the Riverland News for 12 years. Duke Stoetzer Emergency response team training available A new Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training will begin Thursday, Sept. 8, at the Marion County Sheriffs Office, 692 N.W. 30th Ave., Ocala. This is an 8-session training which is available either from 1 to 3 p.m. or from 6:30 to 9 p.m. The afternoon and evening classes run concurrently and attendance can be mixed, depending upon availability. Only one class can be missed in the 8-session series and the CPR and last class is mandatory. The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the sheriffs office. The purpose of CERT is to train and certify volunteers to be first responders in their communities in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane or tornado. The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism. Studies of behavior following a disaster have shown that volunteers perform more effectively if they have had prior training and planning in how to function as a team. For more information and for an application, call Bob Conn, trainer, at 352812-0853.

The city, in partnership with the DEP, will apply for a grant that will cover 68.9 percent of the overall cost to connect Rio Vista residents to the citys system. Sewer customers will pay the remaining 31.1 percent, which is where the additional $20 to $40 charge comes into play. Its a deal that is fair to the city and fair to Rio Vista folks, Marsha Segal-George, assistant city attorney, told the City Council. Itll increase the value of their lots. As part of the citys agreement to purchase the antiquated facility, officials are buying the equipment Rio Vista has used in its system and will also acquire four parcels of land. The city also agreed to buy the system as is. The city will also get Rio Vistas wells. Theyre good wells with great capacity, she said. Segal-George explained it was a rather lengthy process to complete the transaction, because of the number of parties involved.

Officials are proposing a 167.7 percent increase ($62,176) in funds from the special taxing district that includes East Pennsylvania Avenue and the Historic District in salaries. Overall, the proposed budget for the CRA is proposed to increase 118.4 percent ($340,930). City officials plan to use more than $400,000 out of CRA reserves to cover the costs of the proposed increases. Part of the costs associated for the increase calls for fire hydrants, a share of the cost to pay for the Bicycle/Pedestrian Plan as well as $75,000 in sidewalk improvements. The burden is where it ought to be, Ward said after the meeting, regarding the increase in the CRA budget as well as water and sewer enterprise funds. If theyre doing a special event and we have to staff it, then that burden shouldnt be on the general taxpayers. Officials have tentatively budgeted $100,000 for bathroom facilities at Blue Run Park of Dunnellon; however, because the county is in charge of the project to improve the park, city officials plan to verify whether the county is on the hook financially for that improvement or whether its the citys responsibility. The general fund budget calls for cuts across the board in every department, where some cuts were because of major purchases last year arent included in this years budget. For example, last year the fire department purchased several new sets of bunker gear and new air packs, but because officials are not buying the quantity it did last year, the fire budget calls for a decrease of 19.4 percent or $102,124. It is what it is, Ward said of this years cuts. I think Lisa and the staff did a good job with it. Weve still got a lot of discussion ahead. In the 2011 Fiscal Year budget, officials planned for nearly $800,000 in net revenue from fines collected through the redlight cameras. However, because of a noticeable decrease in violations, the budget is planning on a net revenue of $400,000 from the much-maligned devices. Officials had hoped enough money would be generated from the redlight cameras to increase the police force to 13 fulltime officers, but because that didnt happen, the police department did not add any additional officers. Overall, the police department budget is being trimmed 11 percent ($134,967). Their budget does include the cost of paying American Traffic Solutions, the vendor for the red-light cameras. However, the fines collected go into general budget fund. The Council agreed the decline in revenue from red-light cameras is doing what they hoped it would: change driving habits of those coming through Dunnellon; not what the public has been stating: that the cameras are a source of revenue. Ward noted at the regular council meeting that the fines collected from red-light camera infractions helps keep ad valorem taxes down; however, the city council has tentatively approved a millage rate of 7.1408, the highest it is allowed to set according to state guidelines. City officials, if they chose, can lower the millage rate, which would reduce ad valorem taxes. Were not trying to generate revenue, Ward explained during the public comment session. Were not rolling in (money); and our hope is we dont make money. The budget for Greenlight Dunnellon Communications was not presented Monday; but officials plan to host a special workshop to present it at 2 p.m. Monday, Sept. 12. In addition to the workshop, a public hearing regarding the budget has also been scheduled for Sept. 12 with the final public hearing slated for Sept. 26. The 2012 Fiscal Year budget must be adopted before Oct. 1 when the new fiscal year begins.

Its beautiful, City Manager Lisa Algiere told the City Council. But its maybe more of a parking lot than a park. One option presented to the City Council at its most recent workshop, would call for city leaders to rename City Beach after Dinkins. Theres other activities there than just a beach, Algiere noted. Councilwoman Lynne McAndrew, who originally brought up the idea of honoring Dinkins in November 2010, applauded the idea. I think its a great idea, she said. McAndrew noted she lives close to the City Beach and sees how much use it gets by families, especially throughout the summer months for barbeques and birthday parties. I dont know of another park that gets used as much as that one, she explained. Its one of the busiest parks in the city of Dunnellon. Theres a lot for families to do there. Theres a ton of kids in the water. Its really a busy place. City Clerk Dawn Bowne said when officials first approached the Dinkins family about honoring him, his brother, Lester, brought up the subject of the City Beach. We are working with the family, Bowne told the Council. We can bring this up with them and bring it back to you and get other suggestions from the family. Mayor Fred Ward agreed giving them an option between Datesman Park and the City Beach seemed fair. Councilwoman Penny Fleeger weighed in about renaming City Beach. Theres not enough flowers there, she stated. I think it could lend itself to sprucing up. Algiere also suggested renaming the pavilion behind City Hall and near the boat dock; but was unsure of how that could be accomplished, because grant money was used to build the boat ramp.

River views Vice mayors comments were interesting Mr. (F.C.) Stark, thank you for your guest column; I read it with great interest. It spoke volumes without being direct. The two questions you asked were good. They are very pertinent to what is happening in Dunnellon at this time as well as elsewhere within the union. I, too, wonder where the leaders of this community and government are and where is the dialectics you speak of. The noted lack of leadership has been questioned and there is an answer to it in my opinion. First, the leaders today are not of the same cloth as then. Leaders today lack the guiding principles and education, which our forefathers possessed. Specifically, they lack wisdom and everyday common sense, which they employ in their daily lives as well as the administration of the peoples business which they have been charged with conducting. Those leaders were wise enough to know to seek counsel. There is a need for dialectic today. Part of the symptoms in this lacking is that there is no allowance or provision for the process of arriving at a conclusion that has been carefully and prudently thought through using the presentation of ideas, which would include the presentation of information from contradicting viewpoints and information sources. These sources should not be from any learned ignoramus regardless of the office that they hold in life. Many folks call a tradesmen or a specialist when they need to correct a problem while others simply ignore the problem. This lack of dialectic can be seen in the projects Greenlight Communications, redlight cameras, and now has shown indications with the application for grant money from the Community Development Block Grant. So Mr. Stark, I began to wonder how do the folks of Dunnellon answer this need for some dialectic? I also wondered how our founders would approach such things, especially since those who do not know history are bound to repeat it. One of the first things they knew was to count the cost of all endeavors. As well as the wisdom to follow sound advice, which they likely read in the scriptures. Where they would have read a wise man seeks counsel while a fool rejects it. I remember when I was young, the older folks used to say that things run in threes: we have seen the Greenlight Communication project, the red-light camera project, so now lets show the city the yellow-light project. Slowdown! Vernon R. Hastings Dunnellon Where were you when terrorists struck? All in the family I t was a fantastic day, much like the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. The sky was a brilliant blue, while the temperature was in the high 70s, low 80s. A nice breeze cooled the air. It really was a picture perfect day. It also happened to be my favorite sisters 60th birthday. Maryellens husband and children threw a surprise party for her in Amherst, Ohio. My niece, Carolyn, and I recently flew to Ohio as representatives of the Florida Wallaces. My brother, Bill, from Alabama, was also there with his family. I had booked a few rooms at a local hotel for the family and some of her childhood friends who came to surprise her. The look on her face was priceless when we all showed up at her door. Her initial reaction was Youre all not staying here are you? This is a typical Wallace thing to say. We dont say My how nice of you to come visit! We say Where the heck am I going to put all these people? After I reassured her that we had a place to stay she started crying. I thought someone had died, because she was sobbing so hard. Maryellens son, Frank, was the mastermind behind the party. He gave his dad, siblings and I tasks to do for the big weekend. John, my brother-in-law, had two jobs to do for the weekend. He needed to pick up the guests arriving from the airport and he needed to plan a dinner for Friday night when we arrived at 6 oclock. Well, he did pick us up from the airport. His idea of having a dinner ready was telling my sister to order pizza. Men! We had a great time talking and catching up. My nephew, Peter, introduced his new girlfriend, Sarah, to the family. She was very pleasant and extremely intelligent. Sarah told us about her thesis she had been working on. I think she was brave meeting all of us en masse. Saturday we spent the day in Vermillion. It is a seaside town on Lake Erie. As I said the weather was fantastic. It was one of those rare days where everything fell into place. We all got along and agreed on what we wanted to see. How rare is that in a big crowd? After soaking up the sun on the beach, we walked the quaint little town. It was one of the best days I have had in my life. We were family and friends spending time together on a beautiful sunny day. Who could ask for more? The party on Saturday night was a big success. It all ended too quickly. Before I knew it, Sunday morning came, and Carolyn and I were off to the airport by 7 in the morning. While we waited for our flight, I watched a mom and dad say goodbye to their son. He was a baby-faced young kid in Army fatigues. The mom was crying. Dad put on a brave face. I had an overwhelming urge to grab them all and say Dont let him go. Family is too important. I held my tongue. I wished him good luck as he The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

September sees the official last three weeks of summer, and dryer, cooler weather is arriving. The extra wet year has seen lush growth of plants, but some producing poor flowering times. Avocados, guavas, and mangos will hopefully be in season in the stores as crops begin to ripen. If growing vegetables this fall, watch for the return of stink bugs, cabbageworms, and tomato hornworms, which although you may have celebrated beating, will arrive in droves unless kept checked. Bougainvilleas should be pruned for growth. Watering and feed should be halted until the spring. Fall sees the start of the poinsettias. Do not prune these either after September, as the flower buds will begin to appear in mid October. Pruning the plants will hopefully mean a good show for the holidays, which seems to be arriving quicker every year. Healthy branches on the poinsettias are where one will find the best flower buds. Pruning the plant sensibly will ensure good shape, and by leaving many branches hopefully a lot of flowers. Careful planting is required as the naturally shorter days help the plant to begin its growth pattern. If planted by a streetlight, or house light, this natural process can also be thrown off. Poinsettias flower as the plant enters the reproductive state. Nighttime darkness needs to be a minimum of 12 hours to get the best show, and the smallest light can interrupt this. Fertilizing the pruned plants toward the end of October will also help the show of color. The new tender growth is top of the menu for the hornworm so watch, as the new growth appears that this pest is kept under control. Think about building raised beds for planting for the spring, and yes more compost can be spread around the garden. Mulching may help protect more tender plants so remember where they are planted and make sure that you remember to protect them. Remember if you are leaving Florida and want to take plants to another state you will need to have them inspected for bugs before taking. Same if you want to bring plants back with you from visits. Interdiction stations require all plants to be checked so make sure paperwork is in order. What is nice in one place is a noxious weed in another and fines can be nasty. Tracy Jenner, the Riverland Gardener, can be e-mailed at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pruning Poinsettias for the holidays needs to be done I ts a question everyone asks as the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks comes around. This year will certainly be no different, even with Osama bin Laden officially buried 10,000 leagues under the sea. Its hard to believe the 10th anniversary of that dreaded September morning will play out in newspapers and television shows across the nation. While bin Laden is dead; America still has an open wound from the events that unfolded that fateful morning. Terrorists striking fear into the hearts of people wasnt breaking news; that they hit us on our own soil was dastardly. And, for the sake of argument, we ask that conspiracy theorists bury themselves in a good book on the anniversary. Even today, chills run down our spine, tears flow across our cheeks as we recall the planes crashing into the Twin Towers; the people jumping from hundreds of feet above the ground to escape the burning building. We dont need replays on television to remind us of that day; its forever etched into our conscience, much like the assassination of John F. Kennedy (if youre old enough to recall); the triumphs and tragedies of the NASA program; and the Watergate Scandal of the 1970s. Were pretty sure you get the point. Traveling is no longer what it used to be; its not a matter of joining your loved ones in the terminal to make sure they board the plane or watching Dads plane land from his weeklong business trip. Sure were going to ask you the question about where you were the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, but we want to know more. New York might be tens of hundreds of miles from Dunnellon, that morning forever altered our nation, whether it is New York City to our small town, nestled along the Rainbow and Withlacoochee rivers. Heres what were seeking from you: Were you in New York or Washington, D.C., the morning of the attacks and days afterward? Did you lose a loved one? Were you traveling, stuck in an airport? Did you join the military because of it all? Were you already in the military when it happened? Have you been to Ground Zero? Do you have pictures of it all? If so, wed like to know as we compile stories about the events of that day and the weeks that unfolded afterward. While we wont be able to contact every individual that submits information, we want to hear from you. E-mail us your name, story in less than 200 words and contact information by Thursday, Sept. 1, at email@example.com. Kathleen Wallace Tracy Jenner See SMILE page 5
A lthough your air conditioner is supposed to keep you cool, your summer electric bills for the cost of running that air conditioner just might make you break out in a nervous sweat. The good news is that with the following tips from UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service, you can beat the heat and cool down your electric bills. Factors out of your control, such as temperature, solar radiation and relative humidity determine how much heat is available to enter your home. Safeguarding your home against this heat reduces how hard your air conditioning unit has to work to efficiently cool your home. And the less your air conditioner works, the less you pay in electric bills each month. Bolster your heat-resistant bulwarks If heat is the enemy and your home is your air conditioned castle, insulation is one of the best ways to bolster the bulwarks and stop heat flow into your home. Insulation is graded using R-values that measure thermal resistance. The higher the Rvalue, the better the insulation resists the transfer of heat. Though fully replacing your insulation often isnt practical, adding insulation to your attic is an easier option. Insulating your attic to the recommended value of R-30 is relatively inexpensive and helps prevent up to 140-degree attic air from flowing into your home. If your attic already has insulation, ensure theres enough to adequately protect your home from the hot temperatures outside. To reach R-30, you should have one of the following: Nine inches of fiberglass batting insulation. Nine inches of blownin cellulose insulation. Twelve inches of blown-in fiberglass or Rockwool insulation. Spray foam insulation varies. Contact a local insulation contractor. Visit www.energystar.gov for more information on tax credits that can help with the cost of adding attic insulation. Your energy provider may also provide incentives. Help your air conditioner run efficiently If you already have adequate insulation, try these other simple steps that directly influence how efficiently your air conditioner runs. Check your air filter once a month during peak season (now). Dirty air filters make your air conditioner work harder to move the same amount of air, so replace as needed. Dont let debris build up around your outside air compressor. Leaves and other debris make it more difficult for the compressor to operate efficiently. Have a local HVAC contractor check your ductwork. Holes or tears will let cool air escape into your attic or crawlspaces, making your air conditioner work harder to cool down your living space. Set your thermostat for 78 degrees. Every degree below 78 degrees can equate to an eight percent increase in your monthly cooling cost. Purchase a programmable thermostat and set it for a warmer temperature when youre not home. Caulk and weatherstrip around doors and windows. This helps create an air tight building envelope.

For the past 12 years, shes worked in Indiana, St. Augustine and various places in Citrus County when the lure of home pulled her and husband back to Dunnellon six years ago. During her time filling in for various veterinarians in Citrus County, she opened a mobile clinic. After several years of doing that, she felt the timing was right to open a stationary office, which she did a few months ago in the Historic District. However, it was Aug. 6 when she hosted her grand opening celebration for Blue Run Veterinary Practice at 20669 W. Pennsylvania Ave. While Jackson provides the standard care needed for ones pet, or pets, she specializes in Holistic Care, which includes chiropractic and acupuncture. I dont want to be the typical vet you come to and drop your pet off, she explained, noting she has eight pets of her own two dogs, three cats, four horses and one miniature donkey. I want to be more involved with the animals and their owners. I have clients that drive an hour and half to see me. Which is why when the owners bring their pet, or pets, in for a visit she meets them in her greeting room for a consultation. There, she discusses treatment options and general health care questions. I want a lifetime relationship that comes with the pet involving the owners, she said. I want to have that hometown vet mentality. Does that mean house calls, too? I will make house calls, she said. Jackson lives in the Dunnellon area with her husband, David, also a 1991 graduate of Dunnellon High, and their 3year-old son, Nathan. Both of their families are still living here, a key reason they moved back. My dad was having some health issues at the time, Jackson explained. But we also realized time is short wasting it away from family. The move has been beneficial, especially for Nathan. He gets to see a lot of his grandparents, Jackson explained. He stays with them while were working and I think thats great. As for opening her own practice, Jackson said her husband has been very supportive. Its been a long time building, she said of her desire to open a business.

Stanley of Dunnellon Chiropractic proudly announces the addition of K-Laser Class IV therapeutic laser treatments for advanced pain relief and enhanced tissue healing. We are very excited to offer these treatments to our patients, said Dr. Stanley, Lasers have been used in Europe for dozens of years, but are relatively new here in the US. The KLaser is an effective treatment for many conditions. The K-Laser is a product of K-LaserUSA, the leading company in Class IV laser therapy. The K-Laser is being used by numerous health care providers and professional sports teams throughout the US and the world. Dr. Stanley went on to say We can help many more people than we could before. The KLaser is absolutely the best thing to ever happen to our office. It is very exciting to help people get the results they want, and with virtually no side effects. Many therapeutic lasers being used to this point were Class IIIa or IIIb, since their power output was under 500 milliwatts. The K-Laser Class IV Therapeutic Laser delivers up to 12,000 milliwatts of therapeutic laser energy. It is the only Class IV therapy laser with wavelength selectability, intense superpulse, and multiple therapy presets. The higher power of Class IV therapy lasers delivers a therapeutic dosage of laser energy to a larger volume of tissue, thus producing more immediate, significant results. Laser therapy works by stimulating production of cellular energy in damaged cells and by enhancing the cell membrane permeability. This promotes the speed and the quality of healing, enhances the exchange of nutrients and wastes across the cell membrane and improves elasticity of injured tissues. Laser therapy also modulates pain and reduces inflammation. It can be used immediately on acute injuries, over broken skin and over metal implants. Laser therapy enhances the rate and quality of healing of acute injuries, and can help with the resolution of chronic complaints such as arthritis. The K-Laser is being used in the very best health care clinics across the country, and by several professional sports teams, such as the New York Yankees. We are very pleased to offer the latest laser therapy technology to our patients with the K-Laser, continued Dr. Stanley. To make an appointment for evaluation to see if K-Laser treatment can help you call Dunnellon Chiropractic at 352-4892995. Dunnellon Chiropractic is at 20079 E. Pennsylvania Aven. Dr. Stanley is currently accepting new patients, and the staff of Dunnellon Chiropractic is willing to answer your questions on K-Laser therapy.

Cages body was found by a deputy with the Marion County Sheriffs Office on Aug. 3, after the officer responded to her residence, a 10-acre farm in the Westwood Acres North community. Authorities would not divulge where Cage was shot, how many times or the type of weapon used in the shooting. The discovery came after authorities responded to a call about a pickup truck burning along the 17000 block of Southwest 34th Street in the Lake Tropicana area. Once the fire was put out, the deputy got the necessary information to identify the owner of the truck and drove to that listed address, a report stated. The distance between where her truck was and her body was found is approximately 1 mile. While catching the person or persons involved would bring about justice, Cages children know it wont bring back their mother. We dont know who would do this to her, said Cody Cage, 28, her only son. She was the happiest person on earth. Bringing friends and family together at the Little League Complex was meaningful because it is where Cage had made a tremendous influence on those around her for the past five years as she enjoyed watching her autistic grandson, Nicholas, compete in the Challenger League. The league, started in 1999, for children with special needs was a second family for Cage. Linda affected the lives of so many in one way or another, Mark McCormick, the founder of the Challenger League, said. Fridays wont be the same anymore without her here. The team, which her grandson played on, was known as the Braves, McCormick explained, but noted the team will be known as the Angels next season in her honor. I know shell be looking down on us next season, he said. McCormick explained she was more than a supporter of the league and a neighbor. He had recently attended her 50th birthday party. She was a part of our family, he said. Im not going to rest until whoever did this is in jail. At the end of the vigil, those in attendance released 50 balloons for every year Cage was alive while McCormick let an extra balloon for our guiding angel. I hope this helps the family a little bit, he said as he released the balloon. An account has been set up at Superior Bank to help the family with expenses. A spaghetti dinner is scheduled for Sept. 22 at the Moose Lodge. Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information about this case and the Sheriffs Office is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for a conviction. Anyone who has information or knew Cage can call Crime Stoppers at 352368-7867 or Detective Rhonda Stroup at 352-369-6845. 8 Riverland News, Thursday, August 25, 2011 Call Skipper 489-2731 to Advertise On this Special Riverland News Page 0 0 0 8 R U S Whether youre a subscriber or you picked up a copy from your local newsstand, we just want to say . 2484 W Dunnellon Road 3 5 2 4 8 9 9 2 0 0 352-489-9200 00092H8 www.jndtile.com G I V E U S A C A L L GIVE US A CALL After Cleaning DOES YOUR GROUT NEED ATTENTION?

More than 100 children came out to the park Saturday to enjoy the festivities, which also included demonstrations by Victorias School of Dance and karate demonstrations. Officials: First day of school a success The first day of school proved widely successful for public schools throughout Marion County. As expected, normal first-day challenges late buses due to higher-than-expected rider counts, unregistered students, and new residents unfamiliar with school attendance areas took time out of the first instructional day of the 2011-2012 school year. These issues are normally resolved within the first few days of class. On Monday, 39,481 students showed up for their first day eager to begin a new year after their summer vacation. This number is 166 students higher than last years first-day count and about five percent under the projected peak count of 41,540. As usual, the daily attendance figure will climb over the next two months for the official October state count. While most students made it to class without incident, some buses were delayed because of normal first-day procedures including longer-than-anticipated pick-up times at new bus stops and drivers placing colored armbands on students for proper identification. Transportation issues are a common and expected occurrence during the first two weeks of class. Once drivers become aware of students and students learn their bus route numbers, stop times and locations, these problems dissipate. The districts transportation hotline 352-671-7050 fielded 1,450 calls Monday compared to last years 1,705 calls on the first day. This hotline offers immediate help to parents with bus questions and concerns and operates 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. every school day. As well, the districts Technology Help Desk answered more than 440 calls, down from last years 677 calls from classroom teachers and other school technology users. Despite public education efforts, school administrators sent 495 seventh graders out-of-class because they did not have proof of their state-required immunizations. Last year, 488 seventh graders found themselves in the same position. Even with these immunization concerns and transportation issues, districtwide, Monday ran remarkably smooth for a first-day opening. More than 39,000 children attending school in Marion County Special to the Riverland News Jane Ashman DMS Principal District offers free tutoring services Students eligible for free and reduced lunch may also be eligible for free tutoring services offered through the Title One Office of Marion County Public Schools. Supplemental Education Services (SES) offer academic help to eligible students attending Dunnellon Elementary as well as other elementary and middle schools throughout Marion County. Free tutoring in reading and math will be offered after the normal school day or on weekends. Parents may decide which state-approved tutoring provider best meets their childs needs it is the parents choice. Recently, Marion County Public Schools mailed a directory of state-approved Supplemental Educational Service providers to parents of eligible students.

Romeo open house draws large crowd More than 575 students visited the Romeo campus on Friday, Aug. 19, to meet their teacher and tour the campus. Excitement was everywhere as friends were reunited, and students reassigned to the next level. We expect a great year at Romeo Elementary. The first week of school is always a bit frantic. Parents need to sign in so that they can be admitted to campus, and will need photo ID in order to do that. Also, bus drivers will not admit any student on a bus in the afternoon unless they have the arm band and have ridden the bus to school. While this may be difficult for some parents, it is a rule that we do not violate just to make sure that our students are safe. The safety of your students is the most important factor at Romeo Elementary. We hope to begin the year not only safely, but in the atmosphere of learning and cooperation. Kathy Hultman Romeo Principal Reading expo slated Saturday The Marion County Board of County Commissioners, in cooperation with the Marion County Public Library System, will host the Ready to Read: Zero to Three Community Expo for parents and caregivers of children ages 0 to 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27, at the Marion County Public Library Headquarters at 2720 E.

Up to this time, I just assumed the cell phone was what a prisoner used. My wife and I drug our feet for a long time until we finally took the plunge. Both of us finally went to the cell phone store and signed up for cell phone service. She picked out a phone for her and then picked up another phone and turned to me and said, I think this will suit you. I learned long ago that when my wife is thinking, I should not interrupt the phenomenon. I must say she did not hog the whole experience of purchasing cell phones. She rather graciously allowed me to pull out my checkbook and write a check for our cell phone service. I wrote that check and signed it with a smile not knowing what I was really doing. I have found not knowing what I am doing really is a very peaceful part of my life. There is no stress when you do not know what you are doing. However, when you have some idea what you are doing, then comes the stress. I must admit, most of my life is stress free. Now, that we have upgraded our lifestyle, life has become rather easy for us. I really did not know how the simple act of signing up for cell phone service would so drastically change our life. There is something with our service called texting. I have heard of this of course, but I had no idea what it was all about. But I was shortly to discover the bliss of the world of texting. Not long after we purchased our cell phone service we were at a restaurant celebrating our wedding anniversary. Yes sir, 40 years ago we tied the knot and we have had a wonderful time together. Oh sure, there have been those knotty situations, but overall everything has held together. That sure was a tight knot we tied back in the day. We were celebrating at a certain restaurant and my wife needed to go to the ladys room for whatever ladies do in the ladys room. While she was gone, the waitress came to take our drink order. Even though I have been blissfully married for 40 years, I never take it on my own to make decisions for my better half. I have not had enough practice making decisions for my half. So, when the waitress asked for her drink order I did not quite know what she wanted. Then it dawned on me. I will text her. After all, isn't that why we got this cell phone service in the first place? So I text her and ask her what she wanted me to order her for her drink. Within a very short time, my cell phone buzzed and I looked at her text. Coffee. I looked at the waitress who was looking rather strangely at me, and said to her, My wife will have coffee. This was just the beginning of the textualization of our formal blissful relationship. We really do not have to talk anymore; we can just text each other, which cuts down on the shouting. Just the other night I was sitting in my easy chair reading a book and a text message came on my cell phone. I picked it up and looked at the text message and it said, Can you come to the bedroom immediately. Not knowing what opportunities awaited I rushed into the bedroom. There my wife was on one side of the bed and said to me, Help me turn this mattress over. We were at the mall together and we usually go to different stores. My cell phone rang and a text message came, Where are you? I immediately text back, Right behind you. A text message returned quickly saying, Oh, I thought you were lost. No, I fast text back to her, but it can be arranged. I am neither a psychiatrist nor a psychologist but I think my wife has become intexticated by this new technology. I said to her once, Lay down the cell phone and nobody will get hurt. She quickly text me and said, Touch my cell phone and you die. I'm not sure if there is a rehab center for textaholics yet, but I know someone who should go there. Wait a minute I have a text coming in. What do you want for supper? Meatloaf or fried chicken? Fried chicken is fine with me, I text back. Now, where was I? Ah yes, a rehab center for textaholics. Wait a minute I have another text coming in.

quart of milk at the store? Okay. Yes, a rehab center for textaholics. If anybody knows one you can text me with the information. But then again, maybe being addicted to texting isnt all that bad. After all, it facilitates keeping in touch with someone without actually having to talk to them. That can't be all bad. It still does not trump Gods ability to keep in touch with us. I like what the prophet says, And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear (Isaiah 65:24 KJV). I think God has texting beat, thumbs down. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, 1471 Pine Road, Ocala, FL 34472.

Riverland sports Riverland News, Thursday, August 25, 2011 17 Golf team, under new coach, preparing to tee it up Entering his first season at the helm of the Dunnellon High School golf program, even coach Roger Sibbald isnt sure what to expect of his squad as they prepare for the upcoming season. What he does know is his team has a short time to prepare for its season-opening match and that the competition his team will face throughout the course of the season will definitely prove tough, especially because his squad will face off against the likes of Crystal River, Vanguard, Forest and St. Johns. Its also exactly why hes going to not worry about which team Dunnellon is facing, but more about how his golfers go about their business. Ryan Malloy and Bryce Thalacker return to the mix again this year for the Tigers, while theyll welcome Ritchie Litterine to the squad. They lost Cody Crile and Brandon Freeman, both who regularly contributed to the team last year. Because tournaments are scored by both individual and team scores, Sibbald is going to focus on the latter. Im not sure I have an individual golfer this year that can compete on a weekly basis, he explained, noting it is his first time coaching golf. I know in the past we have had some good individual golfers, but this year I am more concerned with team accomplishments and will focus my attention on that goal. The Tigers, who call Juliette Falls their home course, have been practicing since Monday in preparing for their season-opener Tuesday against Belleview at Eagle Ridge. Sibbald said he was going to use that time wisely to get to know his players and set goals for the season. He doesnt want the team peaking too early though. I plan to access my team and try to have each individual player improve on their game by four to five strokes per round by the end of the season, he noted. As far as how the overall approach to the season goes, Sibbald hopes he can use the opportunity to instruct the golfers on more than just the game itself. To do your best and not to get down on themselves, he explained. To work, to improve on a daily basis and they will be a winner. These are things that they can take and utilize in the future. There are going to be good days and bad days, never give up and never quit and they will be successful in life. BOWLING SCORES Parkview Lanes Weekly News League and Tournament scores for the week ending Aug. 21: Mixed Doubles 7-9-8 NoTap Tourney results: Dorine Fugere and Hans Gondosch won the August NoTap tourney with a total of 1,657 pins.

New stripes With each passing season, Frank Beasley has learned one aspect of the Dunnellon High School football program. I think every year is different, said the now seventh-year head coach of the Tigers program. Teams change so you deal with adversity. During the preseason and camps, well see which kids will start to emerge as leaders. Dunnellon will certainly need leaders this season. The Tigers return four offensive starters and five on the defensive side of the ball. Dunnellon must also replace its kicker this season, having lost Daniel Herrera to graduation. Thats going to be crucial, Beasley said of finding a place kicker. Guiding the Tigers offense will fall on the shoulders of quarterback Jordan Boley. The senior signal caller must replace Jarrett Mitchel, who threw for more than 1,200 yards last season. However, Beasley noted Dunnellon has a good stable of running backs to ease the burden. That stable of backs will have mostly a new offensive line in front of them this season, but Beasley said theyre doing well under the guidance of Tommy Sutton, a fifth-year offensive line coach for Dunnellon. Theyve really progressed well, Beasley said of his offensive linemen. They really understand what Tommy expects of them. Theres a huge difference in how theyve come together since spring. They look better on film and well continue to work with them. Now, we just have to figure out what Jordan does best. Weve got to figure out what he feels comfortable doing and go from there. Hes really made a lot of steps since spring. Despite the loss of most of his defensive front from a year ago, Beasley said the defense will likely be the strength of the team this season. Our line will be relatively young, Beasley explained. But our linebackers look like theyre going to be a good group. Dunnellon, winners of two straight district championships, will certainly have its work cut out if the Tigers are to capture a third straight title. Dunnellon will compete in District 5A-5 after the Florida High School Activities Associations (FHSAA) realignment last spring. The Tigers district schedule includes games against Gainesville Eastside, Santa Fe, Belleview and longtime rivals Crystal River and North Marion, a perennial state power. While some of the competition is familiar, the Tigers have never played against Gainesville Eastside during Beasleys tenure. Its all relative, Beasley said about the district schedule. Were going to prepare the same way no matter who were playing. Dunnellon will get the opportunity to see what areas it needs to work on when the Tigers play at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Lecanto in a preseason contest. The boys are certainly ready to hit someone else, Beasley noted. DHS FOOTBALL AT A GLANCE C OACH : Frank Beasley, seventh season. L AST Y EAR S R ECORD : 9-2, District 3A-6 Champions.
