Long-time restaurant owner dies Twenty-five years ago, Stanley Scally Jr., opened the doors to the Front Porch Restaurant with no restaurant experience, just prayer. When this business was started, my parents didnt know first thing about the restaurant business, they just went on prayer, the lord has blessed us all, Kathleen Cunningham, one of eight children, said. On Tuesday, one day after his death, it was business as usual at the popular eatery, just south of the Withlacoochee River. Itll continue to be business as usual, because thats how he would have wanted, Cunningham explained. Its why were open today, we didnt want to open today, she said, noting the restaurant will be closed Thursday for his funeral services. Everyone here is crying, but hes still standing behind us all, hes over us looking down on us; were going to do it exactly the way he would have wanted to do it. Having battled lung cancer a year ago, going through chemotherapy and radiation treatments, his tests in March revealed the cancer was gone. Officials seeking suspect in chase Pursuit occured this past Friday Law enforcement officials from the Marion County Sheriffs Office are seeking a suspect, or suspects, that led them in a high-speed pursuit early Friday morning, Aug. 29, along County Road 484 in which the driver of the vehicle reached speeds up to 110 mph, officials said. According to reports, sheriff deputy John Lightle observed a green Honda four-door traveling westbound on C.R. 484, drifting in the lane and over the lane divider as well as swerving into the fog line on the north side of the road as it traveled east. The deputy, in his report, observed the vehicle drift several times; then saw the vehicles right turn signal come on even though there was no right turns in the area. After making the right signal, the suspect vehicle came to a complete stop in the middle of the road at which time the deputy turned on his emergency lights to initiate a traffic stop, the report stated. According to the report, before the deputy could completely call in the traffic stop, the suspect vehicle, being driven by a black male with a red hat, accelerated and fled westbound on C.R. 484. At that point, the deputy called a vehicle pursuit over the radio, the report stated. The suspect vehicle continued to flee as the deputy turn on his sirens. Scally, who ran Front Porch, passes away at age 76 H ITTINGTHEMARK LECANTO The suspects stood anywhere from 25 to 50 yards away, armed and at the ready. On the opposite side, five law enforcement officials from the Dunnellon Police Department were locked and loaded. Their orders were clear. Give me three shots, barked Chuck Kanehl, training instructor for the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. With sweat already descending upon the brows of the officers, the shots were quick, zipping through the barrels of a Spikes AR-15 Tactical Rifle, a semi-automatic weapon. Once the first three shots were fired off, Kanehl ordered the officers to give me five more. As the bullets hit the target, they were ordered to clear their magazine and safety their weapons. Lets go check the targets, he explained. Throughout Friday and Monday, Sgt. Jacob Gonzalez as well as Officers Aaron German, Mike Miley, Shane Yox and Cody Murphy spent their time at the Citrus County Sheriffs Office Shooting Range next to the Citrus County Landfill, perfecting their skills with the rifle now a part of the departments arsenal. Lt. Sue Webb and Officer Bruce Arnold are already qualified with the weapon. Lt. Webb received her Photos by JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsShane Yox and other officers from the Dunnellon Police Department work on qualifying with the AR-15 assault rifle, the newest weapon in the departments aresnal. Each officer passed their qualifications with the weapon, allowing them to carry the semi-automatic weapon while on duty.

The vehicle exceeded speeds of 110 mph as the deputy was in pursuit along C.R. 484, the report stated. The suspect vehicle, despite the speed, did maintain the lane as it fled the deputy, the report stated. The suspect vehicle did reach high speeds while passing cars along the way. According to the report, the vehicle continued to flee until reaching State Road 200 at which point the vehicle headed southwest on S.R. 200 toward the Citrus County line. Another deputy, who joined the pursuit, was unable to deploy stop sticks before the suspect reached the intersection of C.R. 484/S.R. 200, the report stated. The deputies then pursued the suspect vehicle to the Marion-Citrus County line, at which point Sgt. Calhoun cancelled the pursuit, the report stated. The Citrus County Sheriffs Office was contacted, but was unable to continue the chase or spot the suspects vehicle initially, the report stated. Marion County sheriffs officials waited at the county line but the suspect vehicle did not return to Marion County. According to the report, Lightle was contacted by the communications center that a suspect matching my suspects vehicle and physical description had fled from a Dunnellon Police Department unit earlier in the evening. In the earlier fleeing, the pursuit had been called off at the Citrus County line. Dunnellon Police Chief Joanne Black said one Officer Aaron German attempted to initiate a traffic stop on the suspect vehicle because the driver was not wearing a seatbelt. (The driver) took off on him, due to our policy, just for a seatbelt, didnt pursue, Black explained. We have leads. A Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputy made contact with the suspect vehicle at the registered owners house, the report stated. The registered owner, a white male, lives in Citrus County. According to the report, the deputy advised he could smell marijuana while speaking with the owner. The owner stated he had loaned his car to a black male friend named Mike earlier that evening, the report stated. The owner of the vehicle could not advise what the suspect was wearing due to poor lighting, but did state he was wearing a hat, the report stated. According to the report, the owner of the vehicle advised the suspect had just returned his vehicle and then left the area on foot, but did not allow Citrus County deputies to search his residence. Law enforcement officials advised their K-9 unit was alerting on a shed toward the rear of the owners house, but the owner was uncooperative and did not allow a search of the residence or shed, the report stated. The registered owner of the vehicle told deputies that Mike had told him that he was stopped for speeding, but did not mention anything about being chased, the report stated. The owner of the vehicle told deputies that the suspect worked at a restaurant called Coaches in Dunnellon, but could not provide any further information. Citrus County authorities advised they never made contact with Mike the suspect. Myers picked for position Tammy Myers knows first hand the effects of cancer. The Dunnellon Police Department dispatcher and administrative secretary watched as Lori Shettleroe, a friend and co-worker, died from lung cancer in July. Now, Myers is taking on the challenge of helping find a cure for cancer by taking on the role of chairwoman for the 2012 Relay for Life Dunnellon. Jennifer Brannon, the American Cancer Society representative for the Marion County branch, believes Meyers is a perfect fit to lead the committee. Im excited to have someone from the city onboard, Brannon explained. I heard her story; she is very passionate about the cause. She is excited to get started early and to get more of the community involved. With her enthusiasm to get started early, that was a huge influence in her selection. The 2012 Relay for Life at Dunnellon High School is scheduled for April 2012 and will be dedicated to Shettleroe. I am hopeful and optimistic that this Relay will be a huge success, Meyers said. As event chair, I am in need of lots of help. We currently have several open chair positions, which I am hoping to fill with dedicated, committed individuals that are as passionate for this cause as I am. I am hoping to have more city employees jump onboard in support of Lori and this very worthy cause. Myers explained she has a number of committee positions she needs filled. Like most of you, I have never done anything of this magnitude before, she said. However, Im willing to do my best and give 100 percent to this event. If you have any interest in any chair position, or if you are just willing to help in any way, please let me know as soon as possible. Relay for Life Dunnellon had hits inaugural planning meeting Tuesday, Aug. 30, at First Baptist Church of Dunnellon. If anyone is interested in helping organize the 2012 Relay for Life, contact Tammy Myers at email@example.com at or Brannon at 629-4727, ext. 5825 or e-mail Jennifer.Brannon@CANCER.ORG. Meetings will be limited and you will not be expected to attend every one, Myers explained. I am hoping to take the stress out of this event planning and enjoy the cause of what we are all working together for. This years event will be different than past events in the way it is conducted. We will be working closely together and starting early this year. I understand everyone is very busy and down time is very valuable. Brannon praised the work of Bob Spangler, the 2011 Relay for Life committe chairman, for his tireless efforts in last years campaign. Bob did a wonderful job last year, I cannot thank him enough for all of his efforts, Brannon said. Hes involved in so much, he just couldnt dedicate the time this year.Riverland News, Thursday, September 1, 2011 3 A member of the Florida Press Association 352-489-2731 352-489-6593 (Fax) The Riverland News serves Dunnellon and the surrounding areas: Blue Cove, Chatmire, Hills of Ocala, Lake Tropicana, Rainbows End, Rainbow Lakes Estates, All the Rainbow Springs Area, Rio Vista and Vogt Springs.The Riverland News is delivered on Thursday to subscribers by our carriers and mail.

No Technicians, No Opticians, Just You and the Doctor 000924T MUSEUM EYECARE Relay for Life selects new chairperson JEFF BRYAN Riverland News qualifications while working with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, while Arnold went through training within the past year. To officially carry the weapon, each officer must pass the qualifications during the two-day training session, which Citrus County provided free of charge to the Dunnellon Police Department. Generally, training such as this costs $150 to $200 per individual. They cannot possess (the weapon) if they dont qualify; it goes back in armory, Police Chief Joanne Black explained, noting the five officers who went through the course passed the qualifications. Generally, though, theyll pass it because of the experience they have. This is an opportunity to get practice, familiarize themselves with the weapon. This is phenomenal training they are getting at no cost to our taxpayers. Because before they can even shoot the AR-15, they go through an intense fourhour weapon familiarization training with Kanehl and Suto, Black said. Once they complete that, they head to the firing range to test out their newfound skills. My officers feel very confident about taking and using it at right time, Black said. Im glad I got them, weve never had rifles here before, times are changing. There are times for shotguns and there are times for rifles; we cant eliminate the shotgun, but we can give (the officers) the tools they need. Black said she budgeted for five rifles in this past years budget; but because of grant money and the ability to get the best equipment at the best price, was able to purchase six rifles for her officers. We looked at the overall cost factor, we didnt want to buy stuff that is going to be antiquated in a year and that we cant use anymore, Black explained. I got input from the officers, other agencies about which weapon did the best. We determined we were going to get a weapon that didnt have a lot of problems, because we cant afford those problems. We might pay more up front, but were paying less on the back end which is important. Weapons that keep on breaking down cost a lot of money and are a toll on the budget, we didnt want that. While her officers are now equipped and trained to use the assault rifle, shes hopeful that will never be the case. Our job is to protect the citizens, Black said. If you dont get them the right equipment, then thats hard for them to do. I want to give all means I can without breaking the budget. Thats why going through the Citrus County Sheriffs Office is wonderful for us. Thats what weve done over the years. I just want them to be prepared. Thats why we give them this training, why they do the bookwork. Once the training is complete and each officer passes the qualifications, the weapon is specifically assigned to them. During the training session, each rifle is adjusted to meet the needs of each officer. Its zeroed in for them, its not like we pass the rifle around to others who are not qualified, Black explained. Its their weapon to take care of. We used to share shotguns, but they were never kept up where it was an issue for us. Now, each officer is responsible for their weapons.

River views Thank youI cant believe the people that live here in Dunnellon, they are awesome! I thought it would be a great idea to have a game day for the kids of Dunnellon and call it Kids Day Out/Back to School Festival. But I knew I would need help and bingo, so many members of the community, individuals and businesses alike open their hearts to make it a great day. I spoke to Lisa Algiere, city manager, about my idea and she was on board. I wish to thank the city of Dunnellon for hosting the Water Balloon Toss and the winners received trophies and medals, the fire department for cooling down the kids on such a hot day, the police department for helping make our youngsters safe with their ID Program and the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce for sponsoring the concession stand. Next, I stopped at the Annie Johnson Center and spoke to Christine Avina and they came on board with their Stuff the Bus Program. They gave away more backpacks full of school supplies then I could have ever imagined in one day. This was a fantastic start. Because of the economic down fall, many children would not have been able to fully enjoy the event, so I put out a request for help and was flooded with donations for tickets for the games. I am proud to say Bill Ballard, Don Bently, Barbara Murphy, Nicole Asaro, Carol Scott, Shirley Dixon, Moose Lodge No. 2308, Pat Huber, Jan Rauch, Sue Lavac, Kiwanis, Lisa Sheffield, Insurance Centre of Dunnellon, Dunnellon Florist, Genesis Hearing Care, Rons Watch Repair, Personal Mini Storage, Wilbur VanWick, Sandra Clodwick, Dee Angleton, Jacks Cool Treats, Lil Cella, Jennie Parks and the Ladies Auxiliary of the VFW, opened their wallets to make this an event that many kids who may not have been able to enjoy, could. Betty Nagel from the Boys & Girls Club, Avonelle Mackerell, PA, Shalyn Barker from Victorias School of Dance, Carlos Gonzalez of Dragon Warrior Martial Arts, Bill Ballard from Humana Market Point, Stitch Niche, Lori and Jim Haussy from AAA Roofing, and Pat Coffee of EGP sponsored all the games. But the games would not have worked without the assistance of many volunteers. I asked Chet and John from the Loyal Order of the Moose Lodge No. 2308 to help and they stepped up to the plate and brought with them Bob, Carol, Brooks, Tammi, Sally, Jim, Butch, Kathy, Carol and Marie, plus a few more that showed up the morning of the event ready to help. I wish I had their names to thank them properly. Jane and Charlie Keele came through with two big tents. Paul Soffe III and Paul Soffe IV gave up their time to help put them up and take them down and the Rainbow Springs State Park for providing the chairs for the event. By afternoon, as everyone was heating up, a new troop of volunteers came to relieve the morning crew. My hat goes off to Annabelle and Pete Dobbs, Avonelle Mackerel, Dennis Evans, Shirley Dixon, Public buy-in crucial element in politics Made ya laugh! T his column is dedicated to all pessimists in training. We have already determined I am a pessimist. If I say so myself I am pretty darn good at it. I had a great teacher. My dad was the king of pessimism. I have learned the secret to being a good pessimist. The key to survival and longevity is a sense of humor. If I didnt have a great sense of humor, I would have left this planet a long time ago. When your life falls apart, all you can do is laugh. Really, what else can you do? If you dont laugh you will go crazy. Therefore, I am going to do something I have been thinking about for a long time. I think we all need a good laugh to take our minds off our troubles. I am going to start my first annual joke column. With the elections coming up next year it may become a monthly thing! When a friend is ill, I like to send them a note with a few jokes to cheer them up. Since my memory is shot, I rely on a thick book called ,650 Jokes, Puns & Riddles. I would have to say 3,600 of the jokes are not funny. This is a family paper so the really funny ones cant be published. Please feel free to groan or imagine the sound of a drum beat and cymbal crash after each pun. Here is a sampling from the book: Ted: My wife is taking a trip to the West Indies. Fred: Jamaica? Ted: Not at all, she wanted to go! Annie: What do you call a deer with no eyes? Fannie: No eye deer. Annie: What do you call a plaster deer with no eyes? Fannie: Still no eye deer. Annie: What do you call a plaster deer with no eyes and a hole in its sock? Fannie: Still no darn eye deer! Yeah, I know they only get worse. Mom One: My boy finally figured out how to save his money. Mom Two: Great. How? Mom One: He spends mine! I think I prefer the riddles. Question: What kind of phone does a nervous stock broker carry? Answer: A sell phone! Question: Why didnt the man want to go shopping for Victorian antiques with his wife? Answer: He was feeling very Baroque! Question: Why did the cow make an appointment with the therapist? Answer: He was feeling so moo-dy! Question: Why did the gardener stop talking to his plants? Answer: They were mums! Question: What wears a coat in the winter and pants in the summer? Answer: A dog! Are you groaning yet? Hey, I told you they werent very funny. Question: Why was the poisonous snake worried? Answer: He just bit his tongue! OK, how about some one liners? Maybe those will get a giggle out of you. My wife is as cold as marble she says I take her for granite! I was up all night wondering where the sun went when it set finally it dawned on me! The therapist told my wife to put some magic in our marriage so she disappeared!

Nancy Suto, a training officer with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, asked if I was all right. Im just a little nervous, I said. Ive never done this before. OK, so shooting a gun wasnt a firsttime experience. However, its not like Ive got that much expertise in the area. Twice in my life Ive held a weapon. Once, as a youth, I fired a .22 rifle. As a young adult, I was in my teens, so we certainly come to the conclusion I was a youthful idiot, I fired a 9 mm handgun. So its been at least 17 years since I held a weapon, unless of course youre counting dart guns. And lets be honest, Im better at shooting photographs than a weapon. Even now, that might be debatable. She just smiled, kind of like when your mom smiles at you knowing full well everything will be OK. Suto then ran through a list of safety checks so I didnt shoot her or myself or someone in close proximity. Are you right handed or left handed, she quizzed me. Left, I responded, but Im righteye dominant. So is it OK if I shoot this thing right handed? Sure, she responded. Id like to say she was getting a kick out of watching the journalist, one who likes to pick on taxing agencies, have no idea what he was doing. But she was ever so friendly, so I can honestly say this was certainly an education. Off in the background, I heard what sounded like a dying animal, instead it was several officers with the Dunnellon Police Department chuckling with delight. So we finished with the safety protocols, I put on the safety glasses and ear protectors to deaden the noise. Toeing the line, I loaded the clip, pulled back the lever thingy and flicked off the safety switch. I pulled the trigger as if my home was being invaded. I was pretty sure I missed the target 25 yards away by a country mile. Suto politely explained how to pull the trigger and let it release itself. OK, I smiled with a deer-inheadlight look. The cackling, though I could not hear it, was growing Im sure. I rattled off a few more rounds. Feeling extremely uncomfortable with the Editor better off sticking with shooting photos, not weapons T here are two critical components of government missing from our local level public input and citizen participation. Its a small wonder, especially when Mayor Fred Ward and other council members regularly take outspoken attendees of meetings, or naysayers if you will, to task in public and ridicule them. Shame on you for that; its the publics right to question elected officials policy and decision making process. No its not their right; its their civic duty to do so. We recall Mayor Ward sharing why he ran for the Dunnellon City Council. During a portion of the Blue Cove Outfall project, a portion of the engineering in Phase I was slightly amiss because of statistical and data errors. The result? His front yard flooded during heavy rains. The end result? He chose to run for office to make sure the problem didnt happen again to his property or that of his neighbors. If you were looking out for your own interests, because other folks got it wrong the first time, does that make you a naysayer? Were pretty sure if someone walked into City Hall during a meeting and informed those in attendance that Social Security was being cut and payments would be reduced because younger workers are tired of paying into a system they wont benefit from, thered be a lot of opposition from a few a members of the council about how thats not fair. Naysayers? We believe so. Folks you need to remember youre elected officials in a downtrodden economy, representing the peoples best interests. If there is a lack of public buy-in regarding projects and policy then the public is certainly going to lash out about what they perceive as foolhardy decisions. Therefore, they have every right to speak out; however, with the publics responsibility to speak out also comes the responsibility to be present, informed and have the facts, not to interpret those facts with hidden agendas. We challenge officials to allow those with opinions to speak out. We also challenge the City Council do what they must to create public buy-in. Citizens, we encourage you to attend meetings, to be in the know. We also contend you know the facts. Kathleen Wallace See SMILE page 5 See LETTERS page 5 See OTHER GUY page 7

Nancy Turner did a great job teaching Origami, Clovis Sawyer helped the girls make bracelets, Pam Berry painted nails and Robin Mays did the cutest design with her face painting techniques. To keep us entertained, Valerie Levy helped and brought her old voice coach, Jackie Stevio and her Phantastic Sounds with Karaoke. The Dragon Warrior Martial Arts kids helped teach our kids some technique to combat bullying and Victorias School of Dance wowed us with their talented performers. Plus Sonic, Sweet Bay, Winn Dixie, Save a-Lot, Golden Flake, Vernon Martin and Calypso Concessions, also contributed to the success for the day. I especially want to thank Jeff Bryan and the Riverland Newspaper for all their support. I am proud to say that I live in Dunnellon. This is the first town I have lived in where so many people and businesses are friendly, warm and caring. Viola Soffe Dunnellon Al Qaeda or first amendment? Ron McAndrews response to the Our View column in view of his outspoken manner did not surprise me. It did sadden me that by my address I am considered along with 103 of my neighbors as malcontents. Also, for as Ron puts it, restless desire to throw hand grenades into the dark. I remind everyone there is a first amendment to our national constitution. So, Ron, why not answer the specifics rather than letting us know of your petty jealousies? My own view is, I hope and pray, that all of the initiatives taken on by the city work out for the best. I also have enough technology experience to know that projects the size of Greenlight dont always meet time schedules. When handling as many projects as the city has going forward now, a rush to meet a deadline could cause a lack of information going to the public. With the task load and size of the management team here, such an oversight can be excused on occasion. The strategic vision entails some aggressive moves including the use of our creditworthiness to cover the cost of the moves. Aggression carries with it a probability of success and of failure. No one should be taking a Pollyanna view of what is happening as, however, small the probability of failure is, the consequences associated with it are not good if you are a taxpayer in Dunnellon. Pray for success!Dan Lumsden Blue Cove Association Thank you to all who made it possible for benefitOn behalf of the Drew/Lanier family, we can never thank you enough for all that our community did for Justin Drews second annual Fishing Tournament! In four short weeks, we put together a Fishing Tournament, BBQ, Raffles and Cake Auction. We promised something for everyone, and we are so thankful for all that came and supported us! To my Organizing Team, thank you! You all did an outstanding job and were there when we needed you the most! I would love to mention everyone by name, but I know I would forget someone from the long list! Please know your efforts did not go unnoticed; it takes a lot of people to pull it off and you were there and ready to do whatever was needed! Again thank you! To all of the businesses that donated gift certificates and raffle items; again I wish I could name all of you, but all I can only say is how proud I am to be from Dunnellon! Every single business I asked for help gave us something. I know how tough times are and I want you to know how much you are appreciated! To Local legends, thank you for allowing us to use your restaurant to host the Captains meeting and BBQ! You were the most gracious host and eased our minds from the weather, heat and stage setup! Everyone loved the location and we sure packed them in there! To Joe Brown and Central Florida Armory, wow! What can I say when someone steps up like you did with some fabulous raffle and auction items! We can never thank you enough! I now hope that Dunnellon will pay it back by supporting your new business of gun sales and repair! To Waccassassa Fish Camp, thank you for your facility for our weigh-in. When the storm came in right as we were weighing in, I was so thankful that we were again in a covered facility! Again, many compliments on the location. To my Cake Ladies, and to one cakeman whose cake sold for the most who knew! More than $2,500 alone was raised by our very own Southern bakers!! Thank You! They all looked amazing and I know you put your heart into them! To the winners of the Fishing Tournament, it was unbelievable what you all did! Not a single winner accepted the payout! Thank you Ryan, Allen, Tiffany, Tim, Shelley, Rowland, Billy, James and Cody. Not a dry eye in the house thanks to all of you! I know we had several people that went above and beyond for us on Friday night-and I know you all well enough to know that you do not do it for the attention or to get your name posted anywhere, so I will keep your names private. I hope one of us were able to personally hug and thank you that night! There are no words that can express our feelings and shock when we all come together. I pray that your family never has to experience what Justin, Pam, Chuck and Nicole live every single day. But please know that your family and friends will always be there to support you in your time of need. Dunnellon has had three large fundraisers the month of August and more than $30,000 has been raised during that time. Amazing is all I can say. Thank you to everyone that supported Justin and his family. He will be back in October and will be ready to show us some of his new skills. I am looking forward to his coming home party and then he can thank you all personally! May God Bless You All. The Drew Crew Writer missed point of what derelict is Does the writer of your Aug. 18 guest column know what the word derelict means? It means abandoned, neglected, run down or forsaken, and Dunnellon has that. Theres the Laundrodome and the sign shop on Illinois, the Food Lion and the shops at the Food Lion, shops at the Rainbow Square and in front of the Bank of America, shops on Cedar Street, the Dinkins Feed Store, the three little two storey shops on Williams and Park, and the empty lot next to them not to mention all the empty homes and lots throughout the town. The writer said he comes down from Romeo, does he know that Romeo was once a real town too, but it died when its local economy dried up. Even during its dying days, there was still a charcoal plant and a little market where you could buy farm fresh goods, but no more. The town of Juliette existed once also and on the corner of what is now U.S. 41 and State Road 40, there was a decent sized motel, now both are gone. Rainbow Springs State Park was once a popular tourist attraction with a unique sky ride, glass bottom boats and free-form aviaries, again all gone. As for the condition of the rivers, at one time there were no houses on them; therefore no septic tanks, no gasoline and oil spewing boats docked on these rivers true beauty. The train depot was an operating depot and the Trailways bus line stopped here also. When Boomtown Days was celebrated, the whole town participated, shopkeepers would dress up in costumes and their stores were decorated with pretty buntings. A banner was stretched out over Williams Street and in the Historic District there was plenty to see and do and you couldnt do it all in one day. When we first moved to the area in the 1970s, we bought materials from Dunnellon Lumber, which is no longer in existence. On Sundays, we ate at the Dinner Bell Restaurant, which is no longer here. We shopped at the Sun Market or the Winn Dixie and later the Food Lion or Kash and Karry, Winn Dixie moved and the others are not here. We shopped at Dinkins, the Western Auto, Family Dollar, Scottys and Nalls Drug Store. There were little mom and pop stores all around town and near Williams and Pennsylvania, there was the Fancy Pantry Restaurant. At one time, there were three public schools in town and plenty of churches. As the years went by, the town shrank, but subdivisions grew, people still wanted to shop nearby so Dunnellon broke down and agreed to a Walmart. In 1993, we got our house in town and although two of the schools had already left the area when we moved in, we still had lots of children in the neighborhood and on our first Halloween we had over 100 kids come to our door. On Christmas day, there was the sound of kids on the street playing with their new toys and Easter morning, the families were all dressed for Sunday service and an Easter egg hunt. Every Sunday morning the churches would ring their bells and call the faithful in. As the kids grew, they left the neighborhood and as the elders died, their homes were turned to rentals, the holidays became quiet. The Methodist church moved, the Food Lion hasnt seen an occupant in years and many of the little mom and pops have long been empty. The events, occasions and drives that occur in town are temporary distractions from Dunnellons real need: to keep our kids at home, so they can raise their families here and keep Dunnellon going, is that too much to ask for? Our local firehouse needs an improvement and some folks would like to keep the old firehouse where it is, this is possible with some demolition and rebuilding of the back half of the existing building, but I doubt this will ever happen. Our police need a bigger place also but instead they got a paint job. Be real, we have several sweet shops, antique shops, a fine clothing shop, a confectioners shop, a shoe store, a fabric shop, a holistic shop, a video store, a ceramic shop and all other sorts, these are fine, but they arent the meat and potatoes of a familys budget. We cant deny that the average American family likes to save money, fancy ice creams are a treat, a hand-tailored dress is a splurge, a restaurant meal is an occasion, but if a niche business wants to make money, they need more than a handful of customers to keep them above water and as Dunnellons population gets smaller, so will the profits of these niche businesses, true or not? More subdivisions arent going to solve Dunnellons woes, we have plenty of them. The Dunnellon service area has more than 60,000 homes within it, but the population of the city has shrunk since the 19th century. Seriously, if you live outside of town once you get into the car there is no difference between here and there, one mile is as good as another. Come and shop in Dunnellon and support our local organizations, but it would also help to buy or build a home in Dunnellon. It would help to promote Dunnellon as a vacation spot. It would help to bring more businesses to Dunnellon, but mostly it would be a tremendous help to give the kids of Dunnellon a reason to want to stay and invest their lives here and whats wrong with that? It fries me when somebody takes one word and turns it into a sermon. Derelict is the conditions of many a building in Dunnellon and not of the people that struggle to live here. We like Dunnellon; we wouldnt have moved into it if we didnt and if we criticize it, its because there is so much potential in this town and its being lost. Sincerely, A.C.

Social Security Questions and Answers Question: I received a notice from Social Security recently. It said my name and Social Security number do not match Social Securitys records. What should I do? Answer: Its critical that your name and Social Security number, as shown on your Social Security card, match your employers payroll records and your W-2 form. If they dont, here is what you need to do: Give your employer the correct information exactly as shown on your Social Security card or your corrected card; or Contact your local Social Security office (www.socialsecurity.gov/l ocator) or call 800-7721213 (TTY 800-325-0778) if your Social Security card does not show your correct name or Social Security number. For more information, visit our website at www.socialsecurity.gov. Question: Are Social Security numbers reassigned after a person dies? A nswer: No. We do not reassign Social Security numbers. In all, we have assigned more than 460 million Social Security numbers, and each year we assign about 5.5 million new numbers. The current system has enough new numbers for several more generations.

If I was going to continue with the ritual of looking foolish, why not do it in proper style. She explained the importance of pointing the gun down, turning the safety switch on and never keeping my finger on the trigger. Thats bad, she said. So I repositioned myself, she explained something about breathing. I am, I said. Otherwise, were both in trouble. Taking aim once again, I finished off the clip. It was a rush. Is that it? I asked. She guided me through the process of checking to make sure the chamber no longer had a round it and how to release the clip from the weapon. Check and check. Lets see how you did, she said. The cackling in the background had grown. Really, we can skip this, I said. Why? she replied. Im pretty sure I missed that target, perhaps we should check the one down the line, I said with sarcastic enthusiasm. We arrived at the target, Officer Mike Miley in tow with camera in hand. OK, so it wasnt too shabby. I actually hit it, several times as a matter of fact. I even came close to the bulls eye twice. Overall, I hit the target 10 times. Still, I better leave the shooting of the bad guys to the folks in blue. Ill just shoot the photos.

Designed to encourage parent-child interaction, Storytime provides an opportunity for parents to understand the importance of simple exercises such as reading, singing and talking with their baby or toddler. Public libraries have plenty of resources parents can use to develop a foundation of literacy for their children. One of the major ways that the Dunnellon Public Library helps them accomplish this is by offering Storytime programs. Storytime introduces tots and toddlers to books, music and other fun activities that help build vocabulary and future reading skills. Trained childrens librarians facilitate the parent-child experience by encouraging participation with songs, hand movement activities, flannel board stories, puppets, nursery rhymes and others. The program is age-appropriate and factors in babies and toddlers short attention spans. Research shows that children who are read to often and from a very young age enter school with more advanced language and listening skills than those who have not had those experiences. For more information on Storytime and other programs and services provided by the Dunnellon Public Library, call 438-2520 or visit the Marion County Public Library System website at www.library.marion countyfl.org.

I am currently pursuing a graduates degree in Elementary Education as well, she wrote. Although I am a die hard Bulls fan, I am also a Tampa Bay Rays supporter, and make it to every game that I can. Since moving back to the Ocala area in December, I have taught kindergarten at College Park Elementary and also had a brand new baby boy named Nathaniel in May. Although I am new to teaching, I am eager to jump start my career here at Dunnellon Elementary and become a part of the Tiger Cub family. My pastimes include archery and reading; however, my passion is working with our future, the students. My day is not complete until I have heard about the excitement and joys of my students lives and shared a moment with each of them. I have hopes of a long relationship with my fellow Cubs and dreams to see my students change the nation and the world! We welcome them and know they will make a nice addition to our family here at DES. We also would like to congratulate our guidance counselor, Mrs. Christina Flood. She and her husband just welcomed a baby girl Aug. 29. Ava Grace weighed in at 6 pounds, 8 ounces. We wish the best to all three of them.

harvest and followed through with her wishes. Doctors had to put her on machines long enough to complete the process. She died Sunday, Aug. 22, two days after her accident in which she lost control of the 1998 Chevy Camaro she was driving crossed the double yellow line and slammed into a 1996 Chevrolet 350 pickup truck. Rain was falling at the time of the wreck. If it was as if Sam knew, because if they had not done that it would have put stress on her heart, Emmons explained. Medical personnel were able to use everything they harvested. Thus far her heart, left lung and liver have been used to save two males an 18and 19-year-old as well as a 24-year-old female. Doctors have told the family they already have recipients for her kidneys, eyes and pancreas. That was her thing, her sister, Crystal Emmons, said. That's what she always wanted to do was use her heart. She's given so many other families the opportunity to see their loved ones again. Shes really a super hero. In a year, Samantha's family will get to meet those who received one of her organs. Ive heard the heart has more memory neurons than the brain, said her mother, Theresa Tia Kelley. Maybe, a part of her memory will live on in that person. Not only did she impact the lives of those around, but the lives of those who work with her at Sonic Drive-In where she was a car hop the past few months. She was so much fun to be around, co-worker Erin Scott said. We became really close since she started working here. She never was down about anything and if she was, she left all behind her when she came to work. They kept it quiet here until after our special event; I just remember crying all night. I was supposed to work the next day, but I couldnt. I just kept crying. Her upbeat personality and smile charmed even the customers. This young woman was so bubbly, Larry Jackson, from Morriston, said. She just reminded me so much of my wife when she was younger. She was a really good girl. She kept me out of McDonalds. Jackson recalled passing the wreck that would ultimately claim her life. The next day I came in and heard the news, he said. I couldnt believe it. She was just so sweet. I had brought my son in with me one day and even he thought the world of her. She was just really, really sweet. To help offset the cost of funeral expenses, Sonic will host a yard sale throughout the day Saturday. All proceeds will benefit Kelleys family. However, his daughter explained, he had congestive heart failure and was diabetic. He was in the hospital quite a bit. Then the doctors told us they couldnt do anything else for him, Cunningham said. We wanted him home and he was tired. Cunningham explained how her father called all of his children to his home Thursday evening. He told us that he loved us and that he was ready to go and that everything was taken care of, she said in between sobs. He said he was ready and tired of fighting. That was the hard part, but it was OK, because we all got to say goodbye and that was a good thing. Cunningham described her father as a great father, he was the best; he is the kind of father every child should have. He made sure we were taken care of, he worked, if he had to work three jobs, he worked, she explained. He always provided for his children and family. He taught us to be strong, nothing in this world is free. He was a good man. Dad was the measuring stick in which all other men had to measure up to. He taught us what to look for in a husband. Scally was more than a father to his own children, Cunningham said, but to his 14 grandchildren and 19 greatgrandchildren as well as his employees throughout the years at Front Porch. This day in time, how fathers come and go, he was the father for the children who didnt have one, Cunningham said. He took care of them, taught them what a daddy should be and needed to be. He cared about not only his family, but his employees, during the course of the 25 years when this restaurant should have been closed; he knew his employees were counting on him and an income. He always paid them on time. A lot of employees were given extras, he would help them out. He helped a lot, a lot of people financially. He was more like a father, a lot of him respected. They respected him for more than just a boss, I think. Nicole Tardis, who worked at the Front Porch before moving to Gainesville this past spring, sent a message to Gail Barr, one of Scallys six daughters. To have known Stan Scally is to have known a man, a man that married the right woman, ran a successful business, he had the best jokes in town, she wrote. Were not sad because of where you went. We feel very blessed to have known you. Visitation for Mr. Scally will be from 1 to 3 p.m. today, Sept. 1, with services following at Roberts Funeral Home at 19939 E. Pennsylvania Ave., with the Rev. Wayne Barber presiding. Condolences may be left at RobertsofDunnellon.com. Those who wish may make contributions to Hospice of Citrus County. Even though we lost him he was a blessing in our life, Cunningham said. We didnt want to lose him, but we understand. 10 Riverland News, Thursday, September 1, 2011 Call Skipper 489-2731 to Advertise On this Special Riverland News Page 00093VP M A N I C U R E MANICURE M O N D A Y S MONDAYS C a l l f o r a p p t Call for appt.

Foe more information, call the church office at 489-2730 or visit www.fbcdunnellon .com. I cannot speak for anybody else; in fact, I have a hard enough time speaking for myself. Thankfully, I have those who have volunteered to speak on my behalf on a variety of issues. This has been good, relieving me the necessity of expressing myself. But, as people keep telling me, all things must end sometime. As far as I am concerned, I have had enough. There is absolutely no use in trying to talk me out of it; I have had enough. My wife and I just finished supper and were relaxing while watching a bit of television. We were busy chatting and rehashing the days events and not paying too much attention to what was on television. It finally dawned on us what the television program was all about. It was completely devoted to scandals that have happened recently. The program went through an almost endless list of people caught up in some kind of scandal. There were politicians, actors and actresses, musicians, business people and, much to our chagrin, ministers. The slime of scandal seems to touch every level of human society. Recently, a well-known minister in our area was found dead in a New York City hotel. Even though he was from our area, I really did not know too much about him. The TV program brought me up to date on his far-reaching scandal. It seems he had been living in adultery, which led to the divorce of his wife and the demise of his family. The thing that bothered me is that his scandal did not cause him to lose his job. He was still the pastor of a mega-church and his weekly sermons were broadcast on television and the Internet. As long as people like him, according to the story, he was allowed to get away with anything and everything. I absolutely object. Recently, an actor from Hollywood, the center of all that is indecent and immoral, was caught in an adulterous affair, which led to the divorce of his wife. He then comes on TV and tries to convince me, an absolute skeptic, that he is really a good person, a wonderful father and just an allaround nice guy. I absolutely object. In order to be a good father you have to be a good husband and in order to be a good husband you have to be a good man. A good man does not cheat. A good man does not hurt his family. What happened to the idea of putting your family first? A politician can be caught in some scandalous affair and all he has to do is go on television and say how sorry he is and that he is going to go to some rehab for his problem. In the meantime, this ethically challenged person is drawing a paycheck from the taxpayers of this country. I absolutely object. If this politician were sorry for his act, he would resign office right away and return to the public every cent of his salary and benefits that he has absconded while in office. Why do these people believe they can get away with everything and bear no consequence? If it started to touch their pocketbook, they might think a second time before doing some of these immoral cartwheels that has been happening lately. According to the TV program we were watching, these men in places of power cannot help what they are doing. I absolutely object. What I want to know is, how can some ethically 12 Riverland News, Thursday, September 1, 2011 Peace Lutheran Church Missouri Synod Rev. Terry L.

I am tired of hearing about sex scandals, money scandals and politicians who are involved in both. Im tired of hearing about ministers who have been caught up in the same scandalous web of immorality and greed. Some people shrug their shoulder and say, Well, I guess its just the American way. I absolutely object. Where are the men and women who have integrity in this country? Where are those who have some semblance of a good conscience? Where are those who think of others rather than themselves? As the TV program was concluding my wife and I looked at each other and sighed rather deeply. We both knew what each other was thinking. After 40 years of marital bliss, we have come to know one another rather well. Actually, she knows me better than I even know myself. In spite of all the problems in our country the real problem is that we have too much of everything. The average person in America is bored to death and looking for ways to spice up their life. In this feverish, nervous condition, people are looking outward to be dazzled and thrilled. And the next thrill has to be bigger and better and more spectacular than the previous thrill. I absolutely object. I long for those peaceful days of contentment and inner satisfaction. Maybe its my age, maybe its because I have been married for a long time, but nothing really beats the quietness of a life contented with what I have. That was the advice that the apostle Paul gave. Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content (Philippians 4:11 KJV). To be content with what you have is to have all you need. The Rev.

Riverland sports 14 Riverland News, Thursday, September 1, 2011 JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsDunnellon High Schools Donte Lerma heads for an opening as his offensive line clears a path for the sophomore running back as he picks up yardage against the Lecanto defense. Lerma finished with 45 yards rushing against the Panthers. Dunnellon opens regular season Friday at West Port Tigers on the hunt A preseason victory behind them, Dunnellon High School turns its attention to what matters most the regular season and the Tigers opener at 7:30 p.m. Friday at West Port. Coming off a close 22-13 victory last Friday against Lecanto, Dunnellon will certainly have to focus its attention on the Wolf Packs high-powered offense. West Port clobbered Belleview, 410, in its preseason contest, a game in which its varsity played two quarters. The Wolf Pack scored six times, rolling up 234 yards of total offense on 15 possessions. Two of the six scores came on special teams play. Theyve got a lot of good skill players, a lot of them, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said. Countering that, he said, his team needs to focus on what it does ever week. Weve got to tackle well and play good, sound fundamental defense, Beasley explained. Our kids played extremely hard. The two big plays we gave up, well get that shored up. We made two breakdowns on the one play. Offensively, Beasley is happy with the rushing attack, a staple of the Tigers offense. Against the Panthers, Dunnellon rushed for 288 yards. But the passing attack was listless, not completing a pass in five attempts. Quarterback Jordan Boley handled the pass rush well, gaining 45 yards on eight carries. Weve got to be able to throw the football, Beasley said, crediting the Lecanto defense for doing some things that gave us some problems. However, Beasley said, his team has to get use to those situations. Weve really got to take our time, not put kids in bad situations, said the seventhyear head coach. He got put in some situations wherell learn and grow. Im excited about watching him. Hes just got to relax some and trust whats going on. While preseason contests generally limit the varsity to two quarters of action, looking back Beasley said it could prove extremely beneficial in the long term. I think down the road, some of young kids saw we were in a battle, he explained. Now our kids understand how to battle things. It was nip and tuck there, that puts a lot of pressure on kids and the coaches. We know what to do in those situations, we dont panic. DHS tops Panthers in preseason tune-up Basso seals victory with interception LECANTO Preseason games might not count toward the regular season in terms of statistics. But it certainly goes a long way toward how the regular season will take shape. Case in point, the Dunnellon High School football teams 22-13 victory against Lecanto on Friday night at Panther Stadium. The Tigers offensive unit showed its youthful inexperience against the Panthers throughout the contest, showing flashes of explosiveness as well as ineffectiveness at times running the ball. Still in four quarters of play the Tigers accumulated 288 yards on the ground. LJ Brown led Dunnellon in rushing, posting eight carries for 66 yards. Donte Lerma and Bolly added 45 yards apiece, while Wesley Beasley had 43 yards on six carries. Bobby Robinson scored on a runs of 7 and 12 yards in the first and third quarter. Wesley Beasley added both point after attempts, the second of which gave the Tigers a 14-13 lead. The passing game is where Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley expressed concern. Dunnellon quarterback Jordan Boley was 0for-5 through the air with one interception. The junior signal caller was pressured throughout the contest tossing an early interception. The turnover set the Panthers up inside of their own 10-yard line but failed to capitalize against a rather stingy Tiger defense. Weve got to be able to throw the ball, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said. Weve got to figure out how we can do that. Were not going to be able to get out of secondand-12s if we cant throw it. Defensively, despite giving up a pair of long plays, Dunnellon kept the Panthers offense in check throughout most of the contest, slamming the door shut in the waning seconds of an otherwise close game on A.J. Bassos 55-yard interception return with eight seconds remaining. His score, plus Boleys twopoint throw to Wesley Beasley put the Tigers ahead, 22-13. That put nail in their coffin, Frank Beasley said. Theyve got good kicker, but A.J. made a good catch there. Twice the Panthers offense found themselves inside their own 10-yard line but failed to put points on the board in both instances. Lecanto gained 142 yards of total offense, including 111 on the ground. The Panthers averaged 3.2 yards per play. But there is the matter of the two plays a 52yard scamper in the second quarter setting up the Panthers first touchdown and a 30-plus yard strike through the air that was nullified by a penalty that Beasley explained were unacceptable by Dunnellon standards. Our kids played extremely hard, well get that shored up, we made two breakdowns on the play, Beasley said of the long run. Our kids, fundamentally, played well. JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsDunnellons Austin OBier gives linebacker A.J. Basso a hug Friday night after Bassos 55-yard interception return sealed the Tigers win. Dunnellon at West Port RECORDS: Regular-season opener for both teams; in preseason action, the Tigers knocked off Lecanto, 22-13; while West Port throttled Belleview, 41-0. WHEN: 7:30 p.m. Friday, West Port High School. LAST YEAR: Dunnellon toppled the Wolf Pack, 35-20, in Week 2 at Tiger Stadium. WHO TO WATCH: Of the 288 yards rushing tallied against Lecanto, Dunnellon running backs accounted for 243 yards, led by LJ Brown The junior back totaled 66 yards on eight carries for the Tigers. Senior RB Bobby Richardson scored twice against the Panthers, finishing with 24 yards on four carries. Three other backs had 25 yards or more on the ground, including Donte Lerma (45), Wesley Beasley (43), Malcolm Ross (29) and JVon Swoll (28). Defensively, the Tigers had two interceptions last week, one by Jordan Anderson and A.J. Bassos 55-yard return for a score. West Port RB Alfonso Randolph had a 46-yard touchdown run, finishing with 58 yards on three carries against Belleview. WR Kvon Brown hauled in a pair of scores from 48 and 29 yards out and WR Marvin Wilkerson had an 8-yard touchdown reception.
