BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH DHS grad battling aggressive form of breast cancer It was four days before Valentines Day 2011. Mackenzie FosselmanBaughn was looking forward to spending the weekend with her husband of three years. However, the routine examination she has been regularly giving herself the past six years was anything but normal. She knew full well what the lump in her left breast meant; she didnt need a doctor to tell her. I knew it was cancer, it was on my left side. My husband actually wanted to take me to emergency room; it was such a boy response, she jokingly said. The 2000 Dunnellon High School graduate, with a history of family breast cancer, went to her gynecologist for further testing. She had a mammogram and ultrasounds, but her original surgeon advised against the surgery. The surgeon told me I was too young to have breast cancer, the 29-year-old Baughn recalled while waiting further County will cut down dozens of trees for DRA Marion County pitched its plan to construct a Drainage Retention Area (DRA) on East Pennsylvania Avenue, west of the Rainbow River, Monday as part of the Blue Run Park of Dunnellon project, much to the dismay of the Dunnellon City Council. Part of the project calls for removing as many as 60 trees on three parcels of property the county purchased for $100 each in October 2009 to complete the project. I wish we had seen this a lot earlier, Councilwoman Penny Fleeger said. Im concerned we were not part of the planning process. Dunnellon is just a step child to the county; I find it offensive. Its the first time weve seen anything, but its something I wish we had a lot more input into this. Im not a happy camper. She asked if the county was simply going to by-pass the citys tree ordinance to complete the project. Mayor Fred Ward interjected, explaining because the county is a municipality; it is exempt from following the ordinance just as the city would be. The laws are not being followed, Fleeger said. The county is just running us over. Most of the other council members expressed frustration with not being sought for input about the project. Who would be the responsible Plans for DRA irk officials Mackenzie Baughn: has breast cancer. Sarah Hernandez raising funds. Fred Ward mayor not pleased with county not including city in plans. Vision now a reality Photos by JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon Elementary School student Tianna Goudie, left, and her Tiger buddy Micah Whaley, right, listens to the chatter as as students in the Tiger to Cub program meet for the first time. Tiger to Cub program off to roaring start Sure Danielle Prinz is the reigning Queen of the Rainbow. However, her passion is really that for the youth in the community, more specifically children at Dunnellon Elementary School where shes been a volunteer for the past five years. During that time, the Dunnellon High junior has been formulating a plan to start a mentoring program, allowing Dunnellon High students to partner with pupils at Dunnellon Elementary. With a need for a platform during the annual Queen of the Rainbow pageant, Prinz made her push, and when she made her pitch to school officials about her idea, it blossomed. But there was plenty of work involved to make the Tiger to Cub mentoring program a reality. It was a lot of work, mostly contacting people, Prinz said. But its going to be worth it.

Then perhaps a quick drive to Johnny Tacos is just what those cravings are calling for. The newly opened eatery can be found inside the Shell Gas Station at 11867 N. Williams St. And, yes, they specialize in Mexican food. For John and Lyn Hartness, owners of the new establishment, selecting the flair for their eatery was simple. I remember driving around town one day, asking what Dunnellon needed, John Hartness said. And I remember saying to myself it needed a Taco Bell. Then one day, he stopped for gas and a drink at the station and saw the deli was available for rent. Always one who had the yearning to enter into the restaurant business after a youth spent working in a variety of establishments; John Hartness felt the timing was right. Ive always had a passion for it, he said, mentioning his first job was at an upscale seafood restaurant. I always liked it, and we felt this was a good chance to test the water without having to spend $250,000 to start a full-scale restaurant. We figured we give this a try and see how it goes. The only way to do it was just go for it. Among the offerings at Johnny Tacos includes, well, tacos, burritos, enchiladas, salads and breakfast. Prices for the lunch items run from $1.50 for a classic taco to $6 for Johnnys One Pounder burrito. Everything is definitely afNew eatery open inside Shell Station along North Williams Street John Hartness prepares a burrito for a customer at Johnny Tacos at 11867 N.

This highest rank in scouting shows the high level of practical skills, citizenship and dedication to the community that Piechowiak has developed and demonstrated. Piechowiaks Eagle Project included planning, managing and reporting on the marking of 125 storm sewers in the city of Dunnellon with permanent 4inch durable composite disks to alert people of the impact of chemicals or items that flow into the storm sewers. These items could get into the rivers and aquifer and, if hazardous, would injure wildlife, river use and the water supply. Piechowiak acquired material, trained two teams of scouts that cemented these disks to the top surface of the storm sewers on four successive weekends. The support of Piechowiak and Boy Scout Troup 452 in working on projects to preserve the Rainbow River, a National Natural Landmark and Outstanding Florida Water, is a valuable service to the community. The project was supported by the Southwest Water Management District and Rainbow River Conservation.

It was completely swollen and he told me that breast cancer doesnt do that. I told him I would like to biopsy, but he told me that there was no point. He said if it came back I could wait until I was 35. I told him I wanted it out; it had grown 10 percent the first week. She consulted with her gynecologist; switched surgeons. Since then, shes undergone three surgeries and is preparing for a fourth. So far, she had the initial surgery to remove the lump and surrounding tissue, but with test results in hand, she had a bilateral mastectomy in which both breasts were removed. Now, shes preparing for a hysterectomy. I have whats called a Brac Gene, she explained. Its a gene that causes breast cancer and ovarian cancer. There was an 85 percent chance that it was going to come back in the opposite breast. I came up here (to UAB) to get surgery scheduled and undergo radiation treatment. (The doctors) felt the cancer was aggressive and they wanted to do everything they could. At first, I just had the lump removed and the surrounding tissues. After the test results came back, they highly suggested it because of the gene I have so I agreed to it. I thought I was going to have it and have implants. But they cant put in implants because of the concern with the existing tissue. Shes also gone through chemotherapy and radiation treatments. The four-hour chemotherapy sessions were one every three weeks. The first treatment was unnerving, seeing the bag of brightred medicine. Id fall asleep through it, the paralegal for a law firm in Fort Walton Beach said. Id sleep for about a week after having it; then Id start getting sick. I threw up constantly; it made my muscles ache. I tried to go into work and do a few things, but just didnt have the energy. Despite the devastating news, coupled with the disappointment of not being able to have children in the future, Baughn has done what she can to have a positive outlook. Her husband, Ben, has been very supportive as well as her breast cancer support group in Fort Walton Beach. He just wants me to get better, she said. About the end of my first cycle, it was the beginning of third week of chemotherapy when I started losing my hair. He shaved my head, he loved every minute of it. He has long hair and he was willing to shave his head too, but I told him no, somebody has to have hair. I have a great support system in family, friends and the breast cancer support group. One thing they always tell me is you have to be mentally together. I have my moments; I had a moment early about not being able to have children, because thats what young women are supposed to do. Until I talked to my husband, he calmed me down. Theres so much more to life than (having kids). When she told Sarah Hakken-Hernandez, a long-time friend, about her plight, she said Hernandez was shocked. She was upset, Baughn said. But she was very supportive; she knew this was something I could get through. Hernandez decided to take her support for Baughn a step further; make that 26.2 miles further. The 2001 Dunnellon High graduate has been preparing to compete in the Chicago Marathon on Sunday, Oct. 9. The former prep cross country runner has been competing in half marathons the past year, but decided to make the leap by entering the Chicago Marathon a week before Baughns diagnosis. Now, the money Hernandez is raising is going toward her friends expenses. I was very touched, Baughn said. I knew that shed been training for marathons, but she wanted to do something to raise money and awareness any way she could. Hernandez, who met Baughn while the pair attended Dunnellon Middle School, said its the least she could do for her friend. I was really shocked, you know, when she told me the news, Hernandez said. Its really a rare, aggressive type of cancer. Im still shocked. But this is a chance for me to help her out and to raise some awareness. Its always nice to raise money for charities, but this hits home, because its someone you know. Hernandez said shes nervous about competing in her first marathon, but explained it pales in comparison to the fight her friend is facing as well as other women across America. It certainly has made me more self aware of self breast exams, Hernandez said. To read more about Hernandezs upcoming marathon or contribute money, visit marathoning formackenzie.weebly. com.

River views L ast Friday, we bid adieu to Skipper Dickman in a quiet way, because thats the way Skipper wanted it and would have certainly thumped us all in the heads had we organized a big going away party. He certainly isnt one for attention. For the past 13 months, Ive gotten to know Skipper pretty well. If he finds out I wrote this and youre reading it, he might make a return trek to the office just to crown this young whippersnapper. For those not in the loop, Skipper retired. Friday was his last day. We Skipper, Cheryl and myself all worked well together these past 13 months. We understood what our focus was and weve been busting our tails to accomplish that goal. I, for one, certainly believe weve done a pretty good job of providing a quality, community newspaper, full of wonderful stories, photos and, most importantly, advertisements. I know those who would see Skipper on a regular basis are going to miss him. Certainly working in a small office, weve seen each other at our worst and our best. For Skipper, though, I dont recall him having a bad day. Thats just Skip. He always saw the positive side of life. Of course, thats not to say he didnt get worked up on a few occasions. We all do, but its his passion for his job, our newspaper that is the underlying factors. Its a great passion: work hard so your company is successful. I wish we had more people like Skipper in the world; perhaps our country might be better off. Id known Skipper for years, though, we never directly worked together. Id met Skipper when he was a regular horseshoe player, or pitcher, as he informed me and the Beverly Hills Horseshoe Club was hosting a statewide tournament. Theres a purpose in being pink Ta-ta for now T his will be my last column for awhile. I want to thank all of you that have called, written or spoken to me in town. I appreciate the kind words. Thanks should also go out to Jeff and the Riverland News staff. They are good people to work with and I think the new columnist will find this to be true. I hope you are as welcoming to them as you were to me. I will write in occasionally. I am sure it wont be long before I tackle some house project that goes terribly wrong. If Im caught semi-naked in some compromising position you will be the first to know. Doing something incredibly stupid comes natural to me, so I am sure you will hear about any further adventures I undertake. For instance, I just realized that I have been watering a plastic plant for the past three months! I was wondering why it never grew. Or another fine example of my stupidity happened last week. I walk two miles, five days a week on the treadmill. I needed to drop off my car at the repair shop for new brakes. Dunnellon Tire is exactly 3 miles from my house. I figured I would drop off my car early in the morning and walk home before it got too hot. Whats one extra mile? It would be a test of my endurance. Now if I were my sister I would have been fully prepared, she was a Girl Scout after all. She would have brought her house keys, bottled water, her license, a first-aid kit, spare change, tissues, cell phone and highway flares. I brought my license, keys and iPod. I dropped off the car a little before 7 and started out on my merry way. I was feeling good, singing to my music, thinking about doing a dance step. For some reason, I reached into my pocket and realized my license was gone. I am on the sidewalk in front of Walmart. The sweat is pouring off me. Why didnt I bring a water bottle? I turn around and walk all the way back. No license. Thankfully, someone had picked it up by the post office and called me about it. By now, I am sweating in places I didnt know could sweat. I was a mix between a drowned rat and drunken sailor staggering back home. I was hoping a car would hit me. At least I would have an excuse for lying down in the middle of the road. Four miles later I stood in my shower, not sure if I should drink it or wash off. Be assured there wont be a shortage of stories to tell. As long as Jeff has the space and I have a story to tell you will hear from me. I know that I will be participating in my friend Violas haunted house on Halloween from 7 to 10 p.m. in Lake Tropicana. (For more information, call 465-8000). She and her family do a fantastic job. They build elaborate rooms and trails. Its free and it is fun and Ill be there making a fool out of myself. The first time I went through it I screamed my head off. This was pretty embarrassing because it was broad daylight! I dont like spiders yuk! I will let you know how that goes.

Be ahead of the game, of course. With more than 360,000 home fires reported in the United States in 2009, according to the nonprofit National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), your best defense is a good offense. Thats why Dunnellons Fire Rescue Department is teaming up with NFPA from Oct. 9 to 15, to let our community know: Its Fire Prevention Week. Protect your Family from Fire! This years campaign focuses on preventing the leading causes of home fires cooking, heating and electrical equipment as well as candles and smoking materials. Additionally, it urges people to protect their homes and families with life-saving technology and planning. In 2009, 2,565 people died in home fires. Nearly all of these deaths could have been prevented by taking a few simple precautions like having working smoke alarms and a home fire escape plan, keeping things that can burn away from the stove and always turning off space heaters before going to bed. Fire is a dangerous opponent, but by anticipating the hazards, you are much less likely to be one of the nearly 13,000 people injured in home fires each year. Dunnellon Fire Recue offers the following tips for protecting your home and family from fire: Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling, or broiling food. If you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove. Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from heating equipment, like the furnace, fireplace, wood stove, or portable space heater. Have a three-foot kid-free zone around open fires and space heaters. Replace or repair damaged or loose electrical cords. If you smoke, smoke outside. Use deep, wide ashtrays on a sturdy table. Blow out all candles when you leave the room or go to bed. Avoid the use of candles in the bedroom and other areas where people may fall asleep. While preventing home fires in Dunnellon is always our No. 1 priority, it is not always possible. Dunnellons residents need to provide the best protection to keep their homes and families safe in the event of a fire. This can be achieved by developing an escape plan which you practice regularly and equipping homes with life-saving technologies like smoke alarms, fire extinguisher and home fire sprinklers. The following tips will help keep your family safe if there is a fire in your home: Install smoke alarms inside each Protect your Family from Fire A s we find ourselves helplessly outraged at the injustice of a disease that shows no mercy and cheats at every corner, tuesdays Pink Paper edition of the Citrus County Chronicle is our reminder that there is a weapon that can be used to fight breast cancer to fight all forms of cancer and that is to be informed. Breast cancer is not something that will only happen to someone else; it is not something that can be put off; it is not something that will go away if ignored. The American Cancer Society estimates the chances of women developing breast cancer at some time in their life at a little less that 1 in 8. The chance that breast cancer will be responsible for a womans death is about 1 in 35. At this time, ACS experts report over 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. (This includes women still being treated and those who have completed treatment.) And these numbers do not represent strangers and other people in other places whose names we do not know. These numbers are our mothers, sisters, daughters, friends and next door neighbors. The pink ribbon is easily recognized as the symbol of breast cancer awareness and the color pink has become well established with the cause. It will be seen in great numbers through our community during the month of October the 28th anniversary of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month on everything from bumper stickers to M&Ms to glittering jewelry. The symbol may be dainty, the color may be eye-catching but the message is powerful. And it is one that must be heard. Cancers are a group of diseases that cause cells in the body to change and grow out of control. Causes and cures for this horrific disease are still prayers away; however, physicians and medical experts are in agreement that continued progress against breast cancer is dependant upon on the application of existing knowledge of risk reduction, early detection and treatment, as well as continued research into how to prevent, detect and treat the disease. After decades of focused research and awareness, it is true that breast cancer is not the death sentence it used to be. Although science has progressed in terms of better treatment, reconstructive surgery, early detection, and improved survival rates, we can only hope that soon we will find a cure and the current surgeries and treatment, though they are vital and improving, will be considered obsolete and cancer will be a thing of the past. With that vision, the enthusiastic support to prepare Tuesdays Chronicle Pink Paper has been inspirational. The articles, photos, columns and data reflect a professional dedication that surpassed facts and numbers, and instead became a collective call to action as the community opened up to share its grief as well as its courage. Tuesdays newspaper was much larger that usual for a Tuesday. That is because advertisers want their customers to know breast cancer touches their lives and businesses as well. The Chronicle will donate a portion of those sales and advertising revenues to the American Cancer Society Action Network, an advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society. The Action Network is one of the largest grassroots movements to make funding available for breast cancer screening, treatment and care as well as funding for breast cancer research. Remember: Its not just about a pink newspaper. Its about becoming and staying aware of breast cancer, all year long. And its not just breast cancer, but an awareness of all cancer, in all its ugly forms and manifestations. And each step that is taken, each page that is turned, each ribbon that is displayed and each story that is shared even on pink newsprint will eventually become this communitys legacy of victory.

bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home (including the basement). Interconnect all smoke alarms in the home so when one sounds, they all sound. Test smoke alarms at least monthly and replace all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old or sooner if they do not respond when tested. Make sure everyone in your home knows how to respond if the smoke alarm sounds. Pull together everyone in your household and make a plan. Walk through your home and inspect all possible ways out. Households with children should consider drawing a floor plan of your home, marking two ways out of each room, including windows and doors. If you are building or remodeling your home, consider installing home fire sprinklers. The Dunnellon Fire Rescue Department will participate in activities such as Fall Festival and Trail of Treats during October to promote Its Fire Prevention Week message, Protect your Family from Fire! Through these educational, family-oriented activities, residents can learn more about the power of prevention and available technologies to protect their own families from fire. Please stop by the Fire Rescue Department during these events. To learn more about Its Fire Prevention Week. Protect your Family from Fire! visit NFPAs Web site at www.firepreventionweek.org.

On Friday, Sept. 30, Phantastic Sounds and First United Methodist Church presented A Heroes Tribute to God and Country to honor all First Responders (police, fire, paramedics), military and local heroes. The event was beautiful and very heartfelt, especially when all the students of Phantastic Sounds sang numerous patriotic songs. The honor felt by the officers attending was amazing. After tearful poems were read and American flags were waived, the officers were approached by children and citizens thanking them for their service. The fellowship among the community was abundant, as it always is. This event which was dedicated to the remembrance of the fallen victims and service members who perished on Sept. 11, 2001, and with them in mind our community came together to honor their local Heroes with compassion and thankfulness.

I had no clue about horseshoes, except that I thought it was a beer drinking game. Skipper corrected me; my then-boss directed me to cover the tournament. It was a hit, as most folks enjoyed it. Even though I knew the folks who Id be working with, I was nervous upon my arrival at the Riverland News. Cheryl and Skipper calmed my nerves and fears. We have had a lot of laughs at the Riverland News since then. Dont bet on Skipper just fishing or working on one of his many projects, hell definitely find something to keep himself busy. Perhaps, he can expand the door of the office of a particular editor. This certainly isnt goodbye, Skipper would never say that. Because, as we all know, hell see ya later kiddo.

Also available is Lyns 12-inch burrito or Lil Bobbys 10-inch burrito, named after their late dog, a Chihuahua, which even the Hartness found the humor in since opening their Mexican eatery. We know the restaurant business is the No. 1 type of business to fail, John Hartness said. But weve never seen a Mexican restaurant fail; we thought we might have a chance at it with this. All of their food is made fresh, so it doesnt sit for hours under heat lamps. And its made to the customers liking. They can pick and choose what toppings they want or what type of meat they want, he said, noting they offer beef, pork, chicken or skirt steak. Among their other specialties are the Surfs Up, a fish taco, and the Spicy Asian, made with seasoned pork with Asian coleslaw and red chili sauce. Its something I came up with a while ago, he said of the Spicy Asian. You have a lot of taste in it. Johnny Tacos is open from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.

It is a privilege for me to have the opportunity to witness one of my students goals and dreams become a reality, Dunnellon High Principal Michelle Lewis said. I was so impressed by all the leg work and planning Danielle had done prior to her asking for my support of the project. It was obvious that she knew what was involved in making her vision become a reality, that she was willing to make the personal commitment to see it through to impact, and that she had a system of support in place on which she could rely. After our very first meeting to talk about her vision for what is now the Tiger to Cub Program, I knew without question that she would make it happen. Her excitement and her passion left me with absolutely no doubt at all but that her vision would become real and that lives would be touched because of it. The program, which officially kicked off last week, got its start recently in the Media Center at Dunnellon Elementary as the pupils from Dunnellon Elementary got to meet their Tiger buddy. Throughout the year, the Dunnellon High students will spend time on campus with their Cub buddy, helping them with a variety of tasks from tutoring them to just hanging out. During the inaugural year of the program, there will be a spelling bee, donate a book week in which the Tigers will give a book to their Cub, while the older students will help the fourth-graders prepare for the annual FCAT exam. Oh, and those fourthgrade students will get a chance to tour the high school during Homecoming Week with their Tiger buddy. You dont know what crazy is until you see a high school homecoming, said Heyln Hollenbeck, Dunnellon Elementary dean of discipline and volunteer coordinator, as students waited to discover who their buddy is for the year. Prinz is hopeful that long after shes exited the halls at Dunnellon High, that someone will step in to fill her shoes. Lewis is hoping for the same. Danielle remarked that she hopes that the program carries on long after she graduates and leaves, Lewis said. I have the very same hope. As my high school students and the elementary students move forward in their relationship building, I have a feeling all the positives that are sure to come of those ties will make it difficult for any of us to turn our backs on the program when Danielle moves on to college. The fact that I know first-hand what this means to Danielle coupled with my belief that one person can be the difference maker in the life of another, I will do my best to insure that Danielles vision remains a reality even after she graduates. It is my prayer that Danielles work brings some much needed joy to the lives of many DHS and DES students. Rainbow Springs Country Club Dinner Bridge Results of play from Sept. 28: Winners: 1.

Vice Mayor F.C. Stark asked of Shane Williams, a project manager for the Marion County Storm Water Engineering Department. Eddie Esch, the citys assistant public works department, answered. He said he was presented with a plan for the project in May. At that it was a partial set, he explained, noting the city was in the process of developing a streetscaping project with Kimley-Horn & Associates. I got with (Louis) Bryant and asked him to get in contact with Mr. Williams. Williams, who took a brunt of the councils criticism about the project, explained he spoke with Bryant, who said it would not interfere with the citys proposed streetscaping project. Its not the countys intention to create an eyesore, Williams explained. Your concerns will certainly be listened to. The Council expressed its dismay at how the county could come in purchase land, work on plans and not involve the Council or other city officials. I want it to be ascetically pleasing, Ward said, so we get people to come to Dunnellon. This is the gateway to the city. Our feelings our hurt that we were not included in this. Its a serious downside to ecotourism. Williams explained the project has already been permitted and slated for construction, though no date was given. Were losing three lots in conjunction with the trail, Fleeger said. I see this as a nightmare, its nonsense. TA C O S continued from page 1 I R K continued from page 1 COMMUNITY EVENTS

access to good books and the opportunity to choose their own books will motivate them to read more. And like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better theyll get. Reading is vital to every childs success, and its the door opener to the 21st century for all children. Since there will never be a substitute for a parents direct involvement in his/her childs education, please make plans to visit our Book Fair.

Today we did a science project turning a liquid mixture into a solid mixture by putting a jar of our ingredients into a large coffee can with ice and salt and rolling it back and forth on the floor. Our ingredients in the liquid mixture were: milk, cream, sugar and vanilla! Can you guess what solid substance our liquid matter turned into? Thats right: ice cream! The class enjoyed the ice cream after physical education class. Ms. Michelle Gunters kindergarten and first-grade classes in extended day, afterschool care, also did the same experiment. They put their ingredients in zip lock bags and took turns shaking the bag. The kids were excited to see it turn into ice cream! They got to eat ice cream, too, in cups that a mom brought in.

Cierra Thompson Ryan Molloy DUNNELLON HIGH ATHLETES OF THE WEEK PRESENTED BY DUNNELLON MULCH AND STONE Molloy paces DHS golf with pair of 40s Ryan Molloy had a pair of rounds to remember last week. On Thursday, Sept. 29, against Forest High and West Port High schools, Molloy fired a 4-over par 40, earning medalist honors and pacing the Tigers golf team to a second-place finish against the Wildcats and West Port. Dunnellon shot a 184, finishing five strokes back of Forest at Juliette Falls Golf and Country Club. West Port High School forfeited due to an inadequate number of players for an accurate team score. I had confidence, Molloy said. I was putting really well; I even got a birdie. The other low score for the Tigers was Bryce Thalacker who scored a 41, just one more stroke than Molloy. I was more aggressive with my putting, and now Im more comfortable with my (new) driver, said Thalacker. Additional scores for the Tigers were: Kyle Smith, 47; Chelsea Dominey, 56; Richie Litterine, 62; and Madeline Tourne, 62. Dunnellon also beat St. Johns, 187-189, on Tuesday, Sept. 27, at Golden Hills Golf and Turf Club. Molloy led the Tigers with a 4-over 40. Other scores for Dunnellon were: Thalacker, 47; Smith, 49; Litterine, 51; Dominey, 54; and Michael Beach, 64. The Tigers played Tuesday against Forest at Ocala Municipal. Results were not available at press time. Dunnellon plays Belleview and Seven Rivers Christian Academy at 4 p.m. today at Juliette Falls Golf and County Club. On Monday, Oct. 10, the Tigers will compete in the Marion County Championship at Ocala Municipal. It will be their first 18-hole tournament of the season, a tuneup for the District Championships Monday, Oct. 17. South Sumter topples Dunnellon varsity squad, 26-13 Prior to its non-district match up against South Sumter, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley boldly predicted the Raiders defense would be as good as will see. South Sumter lived up its billing Friday night at Ned Love Field, keeping the Tigers offense at bay throughout much of the game as the Raiders posted a 26-13 victory. What a physical game, said Dunnellon Frank Beasley, whose team dropped to 3-2. I dont think Ive ever seen us worn down physically, but we certainly were tonight. As a coach, I have to do a better job of preparing us. The Raiders (4-1) limited the Tigers to 108 yards of offense in the second half, most coming on Wesley Beasleys 42-yard touchdown reception with 1:35 remaining in the game. South Sumter forced a pair of turnovers in the first half, including Kenneth Maxwells 45yard interception return in the first quarter, before reeling off 19 unanswered points after the Tigers Malcom Ross scored on a 5-yard run to tie the game at 7-all with less than two minutes remaining in the first half. But South Sumter, working in its no-huddle offense, moved the ball with ease in the waning minute of the second quarter, to take a 13-7 lead on Dalton Hofeckers 7-yard touchdown reception with 6 seconds left in the first half. The Raiders set the score up with a pair of long receptions, most notably on Ladovick Gibsons 27-yard reception on a first-and-10 play from the Here come the Raiders, again. A week after hosting the South Sumter Raiders, Dunnellon High School turns its focus on the Santa Fe Raiders, a District 5A-5 foe. While both teams share the same nickname, there are plenty of other similarities they share. Theyre a really good football team, really athletic, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley. As evident as their unblemished 5-0 mark, the Raiders are averaging 31.8 points per contest and have dinged a pair of opponents for 40 or more points twice this season. The Tommy Keeler-led team has scored 20 or more in the past four games since being held to a season-low 17 in their season-opening victory against Newberry. They run the option really well, Beasley said, noting the Raiders had to switch quarterbacks last week, starting sophomore Tim Deen due to an injury to D.L. Powell, their No. 1 signal caller. He did a really nice job of being efficient; theyve got a bunch of skill players. Were going to have to a good job of tackling in open space. We just have to do our deal. Their option concerns me with them getting out in space and us being able to get our paws on them because they move around so much. Offensively, for the Tigers, its a matter of protecting the ball and not making mental mistakes. Last week against South Sumter, Dunnellon threw two interceptions, but several false start penalties put the Tigers offense in long-yardage situations. Dunnellon didnt fumble, as it had in the previous four games. Beasley attributed part of the penalties to South Sumters passrushing prowess. I felt we left some points on the field, Beasley said. We had some mental penalties that are not conducive to what we try to do, but when youre playing that caliber of an opponent, their blitzing a lot, we got outside ourselves offensively. We just have to relax and play the game. I thought we really competed hard, we didnt back down from the challenge. I was proud of that. However, competing against that blitz, Beasley feels his team will be well-prepared for the pass rush of Santa Fe this week. They blitz a lot, probably not as much as South Sumter, but its a lot, Beasley said. Theyre not as big as some of the teams weve faced this season, but they definitely make up for that with the way they run to the ball. Despite last weeks setback to South Sumter, Beasley believes his teams loss will only make the Tigers better as they head into the second half of their schedule, including key district contests. That game is going to make us better for every game that we have left, Beasley said. They were just really athletic and strong. They had some big long kids on defense. They were really coached. Coach (Inman) Shermans been there a long time; we just made some untimely mistakes when we shouldnt have. Im pretty happy with where were at; we just have to cut out mental mistakes. I believe our playing ability is where it needs to be. I felt some kids had good individual performances last week. JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsDunnellon running back Malcom Ross looks to pick up yardage as the Tigers advance near midfield. Ross finished with a team-high 72 yards rushing on nine carries. He also had a 5-yard touchdown run against the Raiders. On defense, Ross had a team-high 19 tackles.

Riverland sports Riverland News, Thursday, October 6, 2011 13 Tigers 41-yard line. Two plays later quarterback Ian Papenheim found Hofecker in the back of the end zone. Those passing plays certainly sparked us, South Sumter coach Inman Sherman said. Scoring right before half was certainly a key for us. The Raiders wasted little time picking up where they left off in the third quarter, taking their opening drive 67 yards in nine plays. South Sumters Garrett McMullen capped it with a 5-yard touchdown run for a 20-7 as the Raiders defense never allowed the Tigers to mount a challenge. That drive at the end of the first half was the first time since the Forest game Ive seen us play on our heels, Frank Beasley said. They hit a couple of big plays; but they were doing stuff offensively that kept us off-balance. With their passing game, thats what they do. They pound it on you in the middle, then use those backs on the outside. You kind of have to pick your poison with them as to what you want to try and defend. In the final three quarters of action, the Raiders offense gained 271 after being held to just 18 in the opening period. Boy, theyre pretty physical, Inman said. They do a great job of getting after the ball. We earned every little inch we got tonight. That first quarter was a battle. Thats a very good football team. They remind me of us. We werent perfect, but we made a play or two more than they did. Theyre not going to lose many games. Dunnellon plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday at home against Santa Fe in a District 5A-5 contest. Well get better, Beasley said. Our main goal is to win a district title; this doesnt take us off that path. Our kids know this game will make us better. TEAM DUNNELLON TAKES TOURNEY CLEARWATER Team Dunnellon, a 12-and-under travel ball squad, traveled Sept. 17 and 18, to Clearwater to compete in the Softballs for Hearts Michelle Smith Showcase. A total of 17 teams participated in the tournament, and there could only be a solo winning team, which was Team Dunnellon as it pulled from worst to first in a matter of 24 hours. The opening day of the tournament was a rough one for Team Dunnellon, as it struggled to catch the necessary breaks. A dreadful 0-3 record was what it had at the end of the day. However, Team Dunnellon managed to secure the No. 4 seed in the Silver Bracket, due to its low ERA. When Dunnellon lost, it did so by allowing very few runs. But Team Dunnellons main problem was scoring as it appeared they left their bats at home. If Team Dunnellon wanted any chance to get past the first round, it would have to hit the ball more effectively than its first three games, because of the singlegame elimination format for Sundays competition. Team Dunnellon managed to overcome a couple of early runs by the Razorbacks in the first game, as Team Dunnellon squeezed out a 3-2 victory. Gillian Heinritz, the winning pitcher, tossed a complete game, striking out six. On offense, leadoff hitter Kasey Bernstein was 2-for-2 with a double and run scored. Team Dunnellons second game was a rematch against Diamonds, which won 6-3 during Saturdays pool play. Dunnellons redemption game went well, as it reversed its outing of the previous game against the Diamonds and then some. Team Dunnellon easily defeated the Diamonds, 6-2, as Heinritz threw another complete game and striking out two. Michelle Ruiz led the offense, going 2-for-3. But her defensive play was also key; robbing a hit on what wouldve been a single for the Diamonds in its final at bat. The victory against the Diamonds, the top seed, set up another rematch, this time against the third-seeded Outlaws. After two straight wins, Dunnellon appeared ready to claim what it had come for a championship. Kasey Bernstein took the mound for Team Dunnellon with Heinritz relieving her in the third inning. Team Dunnellons offense was clutch when it needed to be clutch, as the Outlaws took a 3-1 lead in the third inning. With time running out, Team Dunnellon would need its offense in the fourth inning to overcome the deficit. Kaitlyn Burchard started with walk, followed by Odessa and Olivia Evans, who each reached on an error and a walk to load the bases with no outs. Haley Coleman, from Citrus County, plated a run with a sacrifice fly to score Burchard. Kasey Bernstein grounded into a fielders choice to score Odessa Evans and tie the game at 3-all. Odessa Evans scored when Michelle Ruiz reached on an error to break the 3-all tie. Now clinging to a 4-3 lead entering the bottom of the fourth, Team Dunnellon never allowed the Outlaws a chance to rally as Gillian Heinritz retired the side in order, striking out the final batter. They showed up much more prepared to hit the ball, Team Dunnellon coach Pat Heinritz said. On Saturday, we didnt get many hits. On Sunday, we had many more hits, timely hits and good pitching. It felt good to win a championship again. Im proud of the girls. We went one day from 03 to 3-0. That shows how we never give up. Special to the Riverland NewsTeam Dunnellon, winners of the Hearts Michelle Smith Showcase Sept. 17 and 18 in Clearwater, front row, are: Coach Carlos Ruiz, Mandy Bernstein, Olivia Evans, Michelle Ruiz, Odessa Evans, Kaitlyn Burchard; back row, coach Mark Bernstein, Leighann Ballien, Kasey Bernstein, Gillian Heinritz, Haley Coleman, Cassandra Chestnut, coach Jeremy Burchard and coach Pat Heinritz. Travel ball team wins Softballs for Hearts Showcase Dunnellon JV football squad falls to South Sumter, 28-8 BUSHNELL The Dunnellon High School junior varsity football team left the South Sumter field Thursday with a loss, 28-8. We didnt have the intensity like we usually do, Dunnellon coach Archie Smith said. We just needed to be a little more aggressive, with our blocking, and tackling. Dunnellon began the competition with a kickoff by Devin Simms, as the Raiders began their possession at the 24-yard line, but easily gained yardage as the Tigers kept getting penalties two offsides and one facemask. South Sumter capitalized on the Dunnellon miscues; picking up their first touchdown with 9:30 remaining in the first quarter. With sweat and much effort Dunnellon tried hard, but couldnt take the ball down the field as South Sumter scored its next touchdown on a fourthdown play with 9:46 left in the first half, taking a 14-0 lead. The Tigers and Raiders spent the rest of the second quarter trying to get past each others tough defenses, until finally, with less than 30 seconds remaining in the half, Tyler Powell handed the ball off to Ronald Boley, who scored the Tigers first touchdown of the game, cutting the Raiders lead to 14-7. As the Tigers tried and failed to cross the goal line and earn more points, the Raiders managed two more touchdowns in the second half, finalizing the score at 28-8. I think physically we were matched, it came to who wanted it more, Smith told his players after the game. We had moments where I knew that was my team, but then others I didnt recognize you guys. I am proud of Ronald Boley and Tyler Powell. We will learn from our mistakes this week and be ready for our game on Wednesday against Nature Coast. Assistant coach Bob Abbatecola added: Monday and Tuesday were going to have to work hard and get better. Keep your heads high; you win some and lose some. Dunnellon played at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Nature Coast. Results were not available at press time. DREW RONDEAU/For the Riverland NewsDunnellon High Schools Jesse McMahon attempts to pick up some yardage against the South Sumter defense in the Tigers junior varsity contest Thursday, Sept. 29. PATRICK HEINRITZ For the Riverland News Despite losses, volleyball team piecing it together Staying busy, the Lady Tigers had three games this past week, with one home game and two away games. Dunnellon showed the crowd how it never give ups, even when the Lady Tigers falter. On Monday, Sept. 26, Dunnellon played Belleview at home, losing each game of the match, 25-15, 25-15, 25-21. As the games went, the Lady Tigers started working together as a team. All wanting to win, they talked more, calling for the ball and mixing things up setting it to different hitters, and placing the ball in the corners so the other team couldnt return the ball. On Tuesday, Sept. 27, the Lady Tigers hit the road to play Nature Coast. Starting the first game with confidence and remembering the teams weaknesses, the score was 25-18 with Nature Coast winning. The second game the Tigers lost again, 25-9, where they were not communicating with one another, and making mistakes. In the third game Dunnellons energy was down from the previous game and they continued making mistakes, losing 25-13. Having Wednesday to practice to work on the mistakes, the Lady Tigers traveled to Hernando on Thursday, Sept. 29. The girls had rotation and block coverage confusion all night, as they fell in three sets, 25-8, 25-16, 2514. Coming home with a loss did not exactly make them want to give up. Seeing a particular fan made the team walk out proud with heads held high. The fan was a previous Dunnellon High School principal who drove from Dunnellon to Hernando to watch the team play. The Lady Tigers played at home Monday against Crystal River; against Tavares at home Tuesday; and Wednesday at Lake Weir. OMAR DESARDEN/For the Riverland News Dunnellons Abby Hatfield (1) returns a volley Thursday, Sept. 22, against Eustis.

After meeting some of these people I can understand why they would want to abandon their body if only for a moment. My question is, why did they return? Whether this was a real experience or not, only their hairdresser knows for sure. I have made it one of the primary purposes of my life to stay in my body as long as I live. In fact, I have developed my body so that there is ample room for my La-ZBoy chair and me. I like to be comfortable. Truth compels me to say that I have never experienced an out-of-body experience. Every night when I go to sleep, I am unconscious until morning but I do not think that counts except when it comes to sheep, but who gives a baa-baa about sheep. I have a hard time relating to these people with such esoteric experiences. I do not doubt them, I just do not relate to them. One thing that I can relate to is an out-of-cash experience. There, I said it. Confession is good for the soul. For many years, I was ashamed of having these kinds of experiences. I thought I was the only one in the whole world that ever experienced such trauma in their lives. I kept it a secret for many years. But all that has changed. I am ready to come out of the closet and confess that when it comes to cash, I am simply out of it. Its not that I have always had an over abundance of cash. Throughout the years, it has come in a little here and a little there but mostly nowhere. I can never remember a time when my life was flooded with so much cash I did not know what to do with it all. Being out-of-cash must not be as bad as it sounds. I suppose the terrible thing is how a person gets to that point in life. I wanted to write a book about my out-ofcash experience but I only got up to chapter 11. From everything I can gather, everybody seems to be out-of-cash. Even our government has come to such a perilous place as this. The government used to say, I feel your pain, and now they are really feeling our pain. The government is not broken as some people attest; the government is simply broke. Now they know how I really feel. Being out-of-cash does have some advantage. Last Tuesday, for example, was a long hard day and I was glad to get home. When I did get home, my wife greeted me at the door and said, Lets go out for supper tonight. I dont feel like cooking. I looked at her and said rather soberly, I sure would love to go out tonight for supper, but Im really out-of-cash. My wife gave me one of her trademark looks and said, Lets use your credit card. I would have argued but I was simply out-of-arguments. I must say that through the years she has been very generous with my credit card, which may be why I am really out-of-cash.

out-of-cash or being outof-luck. The truth of the matter is, no matter how much cash you have on hand if there are no more shirts left, you are simply out-of-luck. A long time ago, I faced the simple truth that money cannot buy everything. I might be able to rent a little bit of happiness but it does not last forever. I have learned that the most important thing in life is to be balanced. Too much of anything, even a good thing, can really be harmful. This must be what Solomon had in mind when he wrote, Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain (Proverbs 30:8-9 KJV). The problem today is not that we do not have enough; we simply are not thankful enough for what we have. The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P.O.

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH DHS grad battling aggressive form of breast cancer It was four days before Valentines Day 2011. Mackenzie FosselmanBaughn was looking forward to spending the weekend with her husband of three years. However, the routine examination she has been regularly giving herself the past six years was anything but normal. She knew full well what the lump in her left breast meant; she didnt need a doctor to tell her. I knew it was cancer, it was on my left side. My husband actually wanted to take me to emergency room; it was such a boy response, she jokingly said. The 2000 Dunnellon High School graduate, with a history of family breast cancer, went to her gynecologist for further testing. She had a mammogram and ultrasounds, but her original surgeon advised against the surgery. The surgeon told me I was too young to have breast cancer, the 29-year-old Baughn recalled while waiting further County will cut down dozens of trees for DRAMarion County pitched its plan to construct a Drainage Retention Area (DRA) on East Pennsylvania Avenue, west of the Rainbow River, Monday as part of the Blue Run Park of Dunnellon project, much to the dismay of the Dunnellon City Council. Part of the project calls for removing as many as 60 trees on three parcels of property the county purchased for $100 each in October 2009 to complete the project. I wish we had seen this a lot earlier, Councilwoman Penny Fleeger said. Im concerned we were not part of the planning process. Dunnellon is just a step child to the county; I find it offensive. Its the first time weve seen anything, but its something I wish we had a lot more input into this. Im not a happy camper. She asked if the county was simply going to by-pass the citys tree ordinance to complete the project. Mayor Fred Ward interjected, explaining because the county is a municipality; it is exempt from following the ordinance just as the city would be. The laws are not being followed, Fleeger said. The county is just running us over. Most of the other council members expressed frustration with not being sought for input about the project. Who would be the responsible Plans for DRA irk officials Mackenzie Baughn: has br east cancer. Sarah Hernandez raising funds. Fred Ward mayor not pleased with county not including city in plans. Vision now a reality Photos by JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon Elementary School student Tianna Goudie, left, and her Tiger buddy Micah Whaley, right, listens to the chatter as as students in the Tiger to Cub program meet for the first time. Tiger to Cub program off to roaring start Sure Danielle Prinz is the reigning Queen of the Rainbow. However, her passion is really that for the youth in the community, more specifically children at Dunnellon Elementary School where shes been a volunteer for the past five years. During that time, the Dunnellon High junior has been formulating a plan to start a mentoring program, allowing Dunnellon High students to partner with pupils at Dunnellon Elementary. With a need for a platform during the annual Queen of the Rainbow pageant, Prinz made her push, and when she made her pitch to school officials about her idea, it blossomed. But there was plenty of work involved to make the Tiger to Cub mentoring program a reality. It was a lot of work, mostly contacting people, Prinz said. But its going to be worth it.

Then perhaps a quick drive to Johnny Tacos is just what those cravings are calling for. The newly opened eatery can be found inside the Shell Gas Station at 11867 N. Williams St. And, yes, they specialize in Mexican food. For John and Lyn Hartness, owners of the new establishment, selecting the flair for their eatery was simple. I remember driving around town one day, asking what Dunnellon needed, John Hartness said. And I remember saying to myself it needed a Taco Bell. Then one day, he stopped for gas and a drink at the station and saw the deli was available for rent. Always one who had the yearning to enter into the restaurant business after a youth spent working in a variety of establishments; John Hartness felt the timing was right. Ive always had a passion for it, he said, mentioning his first job was at an upscale seafood restaurant. I always liked it, and we felt this was a good chance to test the water without having to spend $250,000 to start a full-scale restaurant. We figured we give this a try and see how it goes. The only way to do it was just go for it. Among the offerings at Johnny Tacos includes, well, tacos, burritos, enchiladas, salads and breakfast. Prices for the lunch items run from $1.50 for a classic taco to $6 for Johnnys One Pounder burrito.

This highest rank in scouting shows the high level of practical skills, citizenship and dedication to the community that Piechowiak has developed and demonstrated. Piechowiaks Eagle Project included planning, managing and reporting on the marking of 125 storm sewers in the city of Dunnellon with permanent 4inch durable composite disks to alert people of the impact of chemicals or items that flow into the storm sewers. These items could get into the rivers and aquifer and, if hazardous, would injure wildlife, river use and the water supply. Piechowiak acquired material, trained two teams of scouts that cemented these disks to the top surface of the storm sewers on four successive weekends. The support of Piechowiak and Boy Scout Troup 452 in working on projects to preserve the Rainbow River, a National Natural Landmark and Outstanding Florida Water, is a valuable service to the community. The project was supported by the Southwest Water Management District and Rainbow River Conservation.

It was completely swollen and he told me that breast cancer doesnt do that. I told him I would like to biopsy, but he told me that there was no point. He said if it came back I could wait until I was 35. I told him I wanted it out; it had grown 10 percent the first week. She consulted with her gynecologist; switched surgeons. Since then, shes undergone three surgeries and is preparing for a fourth. So far, she had the initial surgery to remove the lump and surrounding tissue, but with test results in hand, she had a bilateral mastectomy in which both breasts were removed. Now, shes preparing for a hysterectomy. I have whats called a Brac Gene, she explained. Its a gene that causes breast cancer and ovarian cancer. There was an 85 percent chance that it was going to come back in the opposite breast. I came up here (to UAB) to get surgery scheduled and undergo radiation treatment. (The doctors) felt the cancer was aggressive and they wanted to do everything they could. At first, I just had the lump removed and the surrounding tissues. After the test results came back, they highly suggested it because of the gene I have so I agreed to it. I thought I was going to have it and have implants. But they cant put in implants because of the concern with the existing tissue. Shes also gone through chemotherapy and radiation treatments. The four-hour chemotherapy sessions were one every three weeks. The first treatment was unnerving, seeing the bag of brightred medicine. Id fall asleep through it, the paralegal for a law firm in Fort Walton Beach said. Id sleep for about a week after having it; then Id start getting sick. I threw up constantly; it made my muscles ache. I tried to go into work and do a few things, but just didnt have the energy. Despite the devastating news, coupled with the disappointment of not being able to have children in the future, Baughn has done what she can to have a positive outlook. Her husband, Ben, has been very supportive as well as her breast cancer support group in Fort Walton Beach. He just wants me to get better, she said. About the end of my first cycle, it was the beginning of third week of chemotherapy when I started losing my hair. He shaved my head, he loved every minute of it. He has long hair and he was willing to shave his head too, but I told him no, somebody has to have hair. I have a great support system in family, friends and the breast cancer support group. One thing they always tell me is you have to be mentally together. I have my moments; I had a moment early about not being able to have children, because thats what young women are supposed to do. Until I talked to my husband, he calmed me down. Theres so much more to life than (having kids). When she told Sarah Hakken-Hernandez, a long-time friend, about her plight, she said Hernandez was shocked. She was upset, Baughn said. But she was very supportive; she knew this was something I could get through. Hernandez decided to take her support for Baughn a step further; make that 26.2 miles further. The 2001 Dunnellon High graduate has been preparing to compete in the Chicago Marathon on Sunday, Oct. 9. The former prep cross country runner has been competing in half marathons the past year, but decided to make the leap by entering the Chicago Marathon a week before Baughns diagnosis. Now, the money Hernandez is raising is going toward her friends expenses. I was very touched, Baughn said. I knew that shed been training for marathons, but she wanted to do something to raise money and awareness any way she could. Hernandez, who met Baughn while the pair attended Dunnellon Middle School, said its the least she could do for her friend. I was really shocked, you know, when she told me the news, Hernandez said. Its really a rare, aggressive type of cancer. Im still shocked. But this is a chance for me to help her out and to raise some awareness. Its always nice to raise money for charities, but this hits home, because its someone you know. Hernandez said shes nervous about competing in her first marathon, but explained it pales in comparison to the fight her friend is facing as well as other women across America. It certainly has made me more self aware of self breast exams, Hernandez said. To read more about Hernandezs upcoming marathon or contribute money, visit marathoning formackenzie.weebly. com.

River views Last Friday, we bid adieu to Skipper Dickman in a quiet way, because thats the way Skipper wanted it and would have certainly thumped us all in the heads had we organized a big going away party. He certainly isnt one for attention. For the past 13 months, Ive gotten to know Skipper pretty well. If he finds out I wrote this and youre reading it, he might make a return trek to the office just to crown this young whippersnapper. For those not in the loop, Skipper retired. Friday was his last day. We Skipper, Cheryl and myself all worked well together these past 13 months. We understood what our focus was and weve been busting our tails to accomplish that goal. I, for one, certainly believe weve done a pretty good job of providing a quality, community newspaper, full of wonderful stories, photos and, most importantly, advertisements. I know those who would see Skipper on a regular basis are going to miss him. Certainly working in a small office, weve seen each other at our worst and our best. For Skipper, though, I dont recall him having a bad day. Thats just Skip. He always saw the positive side of life. Of course, thats not to say he didnt get worked up on a few occasions. We all do, but its his passion for his job, our newspaper that is the underlying factors. Its a great passion: work hard so your company is successful. I wish we had more people like Skipper in the world; perhaps our country might be better off. Id known Skipper for years, though, we never directly worked together. Id met Skipper when he was a regular horseshoe player, or pitcher, as he informed me and the Beverly Hills Horseshoe Club was hosting a statewide tournament. Theres a purpose in being pink Ta-ta for now This will be my last column for awhile. I want to thank all of you that have called, written or spoken to me in town. I appreciate the kind words. Thanks should also go out to Jeff and the Riverland News staff. They are good people to work with and I think the new columnist will find this to be true. I hope you are as welcoming to them as you were to me. I will write in occasionally. I am sure it wont be long before I tackle some house project that goes terribly wrong. If Im caught semi-naked in some compromising position you will be the first to know. Doing something incredibly stupid comes natural to me, so I am sure you will hear about any further adventures I undertake. For instance, I just realized that I have been watering a plastic plant for the past three months! I was wondering why it never grew. Or another fine example of my stupidity happened last week. I walk two miles, five days a week on the treadmill. I needed to drop off my car at the repair shop for new brakes. Dunnellon Tire is exactly 3 miles from my house. I figured I would drop off my car early in the morning and walk home before it got too hot. Whats one extra mile? It would be a test of my endurance. Now if I were my sister I would have been fully prepared, she was a Girl Scout after all. She would have brought her house keys, bottled water, her license, a first-aid kit, spare change, tissues, cell phone and highway flares. I brought my license, keys and iPod. I dropped off the car a little before 7 and started out on my merry way. I was feeling good, singing to my music, thinking about doing a dance step. For some reason, I reached into my pocket and realized my license was gone. I am on the sidewalk in front of Walmart. The sweat is pouring off me. Why didnt I bring a water bottle? I turn around and walk all the way back. No license. Thankfully, someone had picked it up by the post office and called me about it. By now, I am sweating in places I didnt know could sweat. I was a mix between a drowned rat and drunken sailor staggering back home. I was hoping a car would hit me. At least I would have an excuse for lying down in the middle of the road. Four miles later I stood in my shower, not sure if I should drink it or wash off. Be assured there wont be a shortage of stories to tell. As long as Jeff has the space and I have a story to tell you will hear from me. I know that I will be participating in my friend Violas haunted house on Halloween from 7 to 10 p.m. in Lake Tropicana. (For more information, call 465-8000). She and her family do a fantastic job. They build elaborate rooms and trails. Its free and it is fun and Ill be there making a fool out of myself. The first time I went through it I screamed my head off. This was pretty embarrassing because it was broad daylight! I dont like spiders yuk! I will let you know how that goes.

Be ahead of the game, of course. With more than 360,000 home fires reported in the United States in 2009, according to the nonprofit National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), your best defense is a good offense. Thats why Dunnellons Fire Rescue Department is teaming up with NFPA from Oct. 9 to 15, to let our community know: Its Fire Prevention Week. Protect your Family from Fire! This years campaign focuses on preventing the leading causes of home fires cooking, heating and electrical equipment as well as candles and smoking materials. Additionally, it urges people to protect their homes and families with life-saving technology and planning. In 2009, 2,565 people died in home fires. Nearly all of these deaths could have been prevented by taking a few simple precautions like having working smoke alarms and a home fire escape plan, keeping things that can burn away from the stove and always turning off space heaters before going to bed. Fire is a dangerous opponent, but by anticipating the hazards, you are much less likely to be one of the nearly 13,000 people injured in home fires each year. Dunnellon Fire Recue offers the following tips for protecting your home and family from fire: Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling, or broiling food. If you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove. Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from heating equipment, like the furnace, fireplace, wood stove, or portable space heater. Have a three-foot kid-free zone around open fires and space heaters. Replace or repair damaged or loose electrical cords. If you smoke, smoke outside. Use deep, wide ashtrays on a sturdy table. Blow out all candles when you leave the room or go to bed. Avoid the use of candles in the bedroom and other areas where people may fall asleep. While preventing home fires in Dunnellon is always our No. 1 priority, it is not always possible. Dunnellons residents need to provide the best protection to keep their homes and families safe in the event of a fire. This can be achieved by developing an escape plan which you practice regularly and equipping homes with life-saving technologies like smoke alarms, fire extinguisher and home fire sprinklers. The following tips will help keep your family safe if there is a fire in your home: Install smoke alarms inside each Protect your Family from Fire As we find ourselves helplessly outraged at the injustice of a disease that shows no mercy and cheats at every corner, tuesdays Pink Paper edition of the Citrus County Chronicle is our reminder that there is a weapon that can be used to fight breast cancer to fight all forms of cancer and that is to be informed. Breast cancer is not something that will only happen to someone else; it is not something that can be put off; it is not something that will go away if ignored. The American Cancer Society estimates the chances of women developing breast cancer at some time in their life at a little less that 1 in 8. The chance that breast cancer will be responsible for a womans death is about 1 in 35. At this time, ACS experts report over 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. (This includes women still being treated and those who have completed treatment.) And these numbers do not represent strangers and other people in other places whose names we do not know. These numbers are our mothers, sisters, daughters, friends and next door neighbors. The pink ribbon is easily recognized as the symbol of breast cancer awareness and the color pink has become well established with the cause. It will be seen in great numbers through our community during the month of October the 28th anniversary of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month on everything from bumper stickers to M&Ms to glittering jewelry. The symbol may be dainty, the color may be eye-catching but the message is powerful. And it is one that must be heard. Cancers are a group of diseases that cause cells in the body to change and grow out of control. Causes and cures for this horrific disease are still prayers away; however, physicians and medical experts are in agreement that continued progress against breast cancer is dependant upon on the application of existing knowledge of risk reduction, early detection and treatment, as well as continued research into how to prevent, detect and treat the disease. After decades of focused research and awareness, it is true that breast cancer is not the death sentence it used to be. Although science has progressed in terms of better treatment, reconstructive surgery, early detection, and improved survival rates, we can only hope that soon we will find a cure and the current surgeries and treatment, though they are vital and improving, will be considered obsolete and cancer will be a thing of the past. With that vision, the enthusiastic support to prepare Tuesdays Chronicle Pink Paper has been inspirational. The articles, photos, columns and data reflect a professional dedication that surpassed facts and numbers, and instead became a collective call to action as the community opened up to share its grief as well as its courage. Tuesdays newspaper was much larger that usual for a Tuesday. That is because advertisers want their customers to know breast cancer touches their lives and businesses as well. The Chronicle will donate a portion of those sales and advertising revenues to the American Cancer Society Action Network, an advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society. The Action Network is one of the largest grassroots movements to make funding available for breast cancer screening, treatment and care as well as funding for breast cancer research. Remember: Its not just about a pink newspaper. Its about becoming and staying aware of breast cancer, all year long. And its not just breast cancer, but an awareness of all cancer, in all its ugly forms and manifestations. And each step that is taken, each page that is turned, each ribbon that is displayed and each story that is shared even on pink newsprint will eventually become this communitys legacy of victory.

bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home (including the basement). Interconnect all smoke alarms in the home so when one sounds, they all sound. Test smoke alarms at least monthly and replace all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old or sooner if they do not respond when tested. Make sure everyone in your home knows how to respond if the smoke alarm sounds. Pull together everyone in your household and make a plan. Walk through your home and inspect all possible ways out. Households with children should consider drawing a floor plan of your home, marking two ways out of each room, including windows and doors. If you are building or remodeling your home, consider installing home fire sprinklers. The Dunnellon Fire Rescue Department will participate in activities such as Fall Festival and Trail of Treats during October to promote Its Fire Prevention Week message, Protect your Family from Fire! Through these educational, family-oriented activities, residents can learn more about the power of prevention and available technologies to protect their own families from fire.

On Friday, Sept. 30, Phantastic Sounds and First United Methodist Church presented A Heroes Tribute to God and Country to honor all First Responders (police, fire, paramedics), military and local heroes. The event was beautiful and very heartfelt, especially when all the students of Phantastic Sounds sang numerous patriotic songs. The honor felt by the officers attending was amazing. After tearful poems were read and American flags were waived, the officers were approached by children and citizens thanking them for their service. The fellowship among the community was abundant, as it always is. This event which was dedicated to the remembrance of the fallen victims and service members who perished on Sept. 11, 2001, and with them in mind our community came together to honor their local Heroes with compassion and thankfulness.

I had no clue about horseshoes, except that I thought it was a beer drinking game. Skipper corrected me; my then-boss directed me to cover the tournament. It was a hit, as most folks enjoyed it. Even though I knew the folks who Id be working with, I was nervous upon my arrival at the Riverland News. Cheryl and Skipper calmed my nerves and fears. We have had a lot of laughs at the Riverland News since then. Dont bet on Skipper just fishing or working on one of his many projects, hell definitely find something to keep himself busy.

fordable, said John Hartness, also a licensed real estate agent said. Here, you dont have to wait long, you dont have to worry about tipping or the cost of the drink. Also available is Lyns 12-inch burrito or Lil Bobbys 10-inch burrito, named after their late dog, a Chihuahua, which even the Hartness found the humor in since opening their Mexican eatery. We know the restaurant business is the No. 1 type of business to fail, John Hartness said. But weve never seen a Mexican restaurant fail; we thought we might have a chance at it with this. All of their food is made fresh, so it doesnt sit for hours under heat lamps. And its made to the customers liking. They can pick and choose what toppings they want or what type of meat they want, he said, noting they offer beef, pork, chicken or skirt steak. Among their other specialties are the Surfs Up, a fish taco, and the Spicy Asian, made with seasoned pork with Asian coleslaw and red chili sauce. Its something I came up with a while ago, he said of the Spicy Asian. You have a lot of taste in it. Johnny Tacos is open from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, call 352-462-0123. Cottrill, stepped in and the push was on to encourage high school students to mentor a pupil at the elementary school. It is a privilege for me to have the opportunity to witness one of my students goals and dreams become a reality, Dunnellon High Principal Michelle Lewis said. I was so impressed by all the leg work and planning Danielle had done prior to her asking for my support of the project. It was obvious that she knew what was involved in making her vision become a reality, that she was willing to make the personal commitment to see it through to impact, and that she had a system of support in place on which she could rely. After our very first meeting to talk about her vision for what is now the Tiger to Cub Program, I knew without question that she would make it happen. Her excitement and her passion left me with absolutely no doubt at all but that her vision would become real and that lives would be touched because of it. The program, which officially kicked off last week, got its start recently in the Media Center at Dunnellon Elementary as the pupils from Dunnellon Elementary got to meet their Tiger buddy. Throughout the year, the Dunnellon High students will spend time on campus with their Cub buddy, helping them with a variety of tasks from tutoring them to just hanging out. During the inaugural year of the program, there will be a spelling bee, donate a book week in which the Tigers will give a book to their Cub, while the older students will help the fourth-graders prepare for the annual FCAT exam. Oh, and those fourthgrade students will get a chance to tour the high school during Homecoming Week with their Tiger buddy. You dont know what crazy is until you see a high school homecoming, said Heyln Hollenbeck, Dunnellon Elementary dean of discipline and volunteer coordinator, as students waited to discover who their buddy is for the year. Prinz is hopeful that long after shes exited the halls at Dunnellon High, that someone will step in to fill her shoes. Lewis is hoping for the same. Danielle remarked that she hopes that the program carries on long after she graduates and leaves, Lewis said. I have the very same hope. As my high school students and the elementary students move forward in their relationship building, I have a feeling all the positives that are sure to come of those ties will make it difficult for any of us to turn our backs on the program when Danielle moves on to college. The fact that I know first-hand what this means to Danielle coupled with my belief that one person can be the difference maker in the life of another, I will do my best to insure that Danielles vision remains a reality even after she graduates. It is my prayer that Danielles work brings some much needed joy to the lives of many DHS and DES students. Rainbow Springs Country Club Dinner Bridge Results of play from Sept. 28: Winners: 1.

VIS ION continued from page 1 JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsThe Tiger to Cub program kicked off recently at Dunnellon Elementary School. Danielle Prinz, the reigning Queen of the Rainbow, made the push to launch the program, pairing high school students with elementary school pupils. party for not including us in this project? Vice Mayor F.C. Stark asked of Shane Williams, a project manager for the Marion County Storm Water Engineering Department. Eddie Esch, the citys assistant public works department, answered. He said he was presented with a plan for the project in May. At that it was a partial set, he explained, noting the city was in the process of developing a streetscaping project with Kimley-Horn & Associates. I got with (Louis) Bryant and asked him to get in contact with Mr. Williams. Williams, who took a brunt of the councils criticism about the project, explained he spoke with Bryant, who said it would not interfere with the citys proposed streetscaping project. Its not the countys intention to create an eyesore, Williams explained. Your concerns will certainly be listened to. The Council expressed its dismay at how the county could come in purchase land, work on plans and not involve the Council or other city officials. I want it to be ascetically pleasing, Ward said, so we get people to come to Dunnellon. This is the gateway to the city. Our feelings our hurt that we were not included in this. Its a serious downside to ecotourism. Williams explained the project has already been permitted and slated for construction, though no date was given. Were losing three lots in conjunction with the trail, Fleeger said. I see this as a nightmare, its nonsense. TA COS continued from page 1 IRK continued from page 1 COMMUNITY EVENTS

access to good books and the opportunity to choose their own books will motivate them to read more. And like most acquired skills, the more kids practice reading, the better theyll get.

There will be a display set up in the Dunnellon public library. Stop by and check it out! Mrs. Mondays fourthgrade class studied science in a fun way. This week we have been studying about changes in matter and the forms that matter can take, she reported. We learned that matter can be a solid, liquid, solid or gas. Today we did a science project turning a liquid mixture into a solid mixture by putting a jar of our ingredients into a large coffee can with ice and salt and rolling it back and forth on the floor. Our ingredients in the liquid mixture were: milk, cream, sugar and vanilla! Can you guess what solid substance our liquid matter turned into? Thats right: ice cream! The class enjoyed the ice cream after physical education class. Ms. Michelle Gunters kindergarten and first-grade classes in extended day, afterschool care, also did the same experiment. They put their ingredients in zip lock bags and took turns shaking the bag. The kids were excited to see it turn into ice cream! They got to eat ice cream, too, in cups that a mom brought in. Our Coupons for Education campaign is going well. Several students have already won prizes with the big ones to come. Ms. Veronica Washington reports on our Coupons for Education campaign. Coupons for Education sales continue through Oct. 14. Savings, savings and more savings, dont forget to grab one or more before Oct. 14. Look at these exciting DES incentives. If a student sells five cards it equals a special treat with lunch; 15 cards equals a DES school Tshirt; and 20 cards equals lunch with the principal.

HIs second score of the week came on the Tigers home course at Juliette Falls Golf & Country Club. Cierra Thompson, SwimmingCierra CC Thompson never misses practice, she always gives 100 percent and most important, she never complains! CC sets a good example for other athletes. Cierra Thompson Ryan Molloy DUNNELLON HIGH ATHLETES OF THE WEEKPRESENTED BY DUNNELLON MULCH AND STONE Molloy paces DHS golf with pair of 40s Ryan Molloy had a pair of rounds to remember last week. On Thursday, Sept. 29, against Forest High and West Port High schools, Molloy fired a 4-over par 40, earning medalist honors and pacing the Tigers golf team to a second-place finish against the Wildcats and West Port. Dunnellon shot a 184, finishing five strokes back of Forest at Juliette Falls Golf and Country Club. West Port High School forfeited due to an inadequate number of players for an accurate team score. I had confidence, Molloy said. I was putting really well; I even got a birdie. The other low score for the Tigers was Bryce Thalacker who scored a 41, just one more stroke than Molloy. I was more aggressive with my putting, and now Im more comfortable with my (new) driver, said Thalacker. Additional scores for the Tigers were: Kyle Smith, 47; Chelsea Dominey, 56; Richie Litterine, 62; and Madeline Tourne, 62. Dunnellon also beat St. Johns, 187-189, on Tuesday, Sept. 27, at Golden Hills Golf and Turf Club. Molloy led the Tigers with a 4-over 40. Other scores for Dunnellon were: Thalacker, 47; Smith, 49; Litterine, 51; Dominey, 54; and Michael Beach, 64. The Tigers played Tuesday against Forest at Ocala Municipal. Results were not available at press time. Dunnellon plays Belleview and Seven Rivers Christian Academy at 4 p.m. today at Juliette Falls Golf and County Club. On Monday, Oct. 10, the Tigers will compete in the Marion County Championship at Ocala Municipal. It will be their first 18-hole tournament of the season, a tuneup for the District Championships Monday, Oct. 17. South Sumter topples Dunnellon varsity squad, 26-13 Prior to its non-district match up against South Sumter, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley boldly predicted the Raiders defense would be as good as will see. South Sumter lived up its billing Friday night at Ned Love Field, keeping the Tigers offense at bay throughout much of the game as the Raiders posted a 26-13 victory. What a physical game, said Dunnellon Frank Beasley, whose team dropped to 3-2. I dont think Ive ever seen us worn down physically, but we certainly were tonight. As a coach, I have to do a better job of preparing us. The Raiders (4-1) limited the Tigers to 108 yards of offense in the second half, most coming on Wesley Beasleys 42-yard touchdown reception with 1:35 remaining in the game. South Sumter forced a pair of turnovers in the first half, including Kenneth Maxwells 45yard interception return in the first quarter, before reeling off 19 unanswered points after the Tigers Malcom Ross scored on a 5-yard run to tie the game at 7-all with less than two minutes remaining in the first half. But South Sumter, working in its no-huddle offense, moved the ball with ease in the waning minute of the second quarter, to take a 13-7 lead on Dalton Hofeckers 7-yard touchdown reception with 6 seconds left in the first half. The Raiders set the score up with a pair of long receptions, most notably on Ladovick Gibsons 27-yard reception on a first-and-10 play from the Here come the Raiders, again. A week after hosting the South Sumter Raiders, Dunnellon High School turns its focus on the Santa Fe Raiders, a District 5A-5 foe. While both teams share the same nickname, there are plenty of other similarities they share. Theyre a really good football team, really athletic, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley. As evident as their unblemished 5-0 mark, the Raiders are averaging 31.8 points per contest and have dinged a pair of opponents for 40 or more points twice this season. The Tommy Keeler-led team has scored 20 or more in the past four games since being held to a season-low 17 in their season-opening victory against Newberry. They run the option really well, Beasley said, noting the Raiders had to switch quarterbacks last week, starting sophomore Tim Deen due to an injury to D.L. Powell, their No. 1 signal caller. He did a really nice job of being efficient; theyve got a bunch of skill players. Were going to have to a good job of tackling in open space. We just have to do our deal. Their option concerns me with them getting out in space and us being able to get our paws on them because they move around so much. Offensively, for the Tigers, its a matter of protecting the ball and not making mental mistakes. Last week against South Sumter, Dunnellon threw two interceptions, but several false start penalties put the Tigers offense in long-yardage situations. Dunnellon didnt fumble, as it had in the previous four games. Beasley attributed part of the penalties to South Sumters passrushing prowess. I felt we left some points on the field, Beasley said. We had some mental penalties that are not conducive to what we try to do, but when youre playing that caliber of an opponent, their blitzing a lot, we got outside ourselves offensively. We just have to relax and play the game. I thought we really competed hard, we didnt back down from the challenge. I was proud of that. However, competing against that blitz, Beasley feels his team will be well-prepared for the pass rush of Santa Fe this week. They blitz a lot, probably not as much as South Sumter, but its a lot, Beasley said. Theyre not as big as some of the teams weve faced this season, but they definitely make up for that with the way they run to the ball. Despite last weeks setback to South Sumter, Beasley believes his teams loss will only make the Tigers better as they head into the second half of their schedule, including key district contests. That game is going to make us better for every game that we have left, Beasley said. They were just really athletic and strong. They had some big long kids on defense. They were really coached. Coach (Inman) Shermans been there a long time; we just made some untimely mistakes when we shouldnt have. Im pretty happy with where were at; we just have to cut out mental mistakes. I believe our playing ability is where it needs to be. I felt some kids had good individual performances last week.

RiverlandsportsRiverland News, Thursday, October 6, 2011 13 Tigers 41-yard line. Two plays later quarterback Ian Papenheim found Hofecker in the back of the end zone. Those passing plays certainly sparked us, South Sumter coach Inman Sherman said. Scoring right before half was certainly a key for us. The Raiders wasted little time picking up where they left off in the third quarter, taking their opening drive 67 yards in nine plays. South Sumters Garrett McMullen capped it with a 5-yard touchdown run for a 20-7 as the Raiders defense never allowed the Tigers to mount a challenge. That drive at the end of the first half was the first time since the Forest game Ive seen us play on our heels, Frank Beasley said. They hit a couple of big plays; but they were doing stuff offensively that kept us off-balance. With their passing game, thats what they do. They pound it on you in the middle, then use those backs on the outside. You kind of have to pick your poison with them as to what you want to try and defend. In the final three quarters of action, the Raiders offense gained 271 after being held to just 18 in the opening period. Boy, theyre pretty physical, Inman said. They do a great job of getting after the ball. We earned every little inch we got tonight. That first quarter was a battle. Thats a very good football team. They remind me of us. We werent perfect, but we made a play or two more than they did. Theyre not going to lose many games. Dunnellon plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday at home against Santa Fe in a District 5A-5 contest. Well get better, Beasley said. Our main goal is to win a district title; this doesnt take us off that path. Our kids know this game will make us better. TEAM DUNNELLON TAKES TOURNEY CLEARWATER Team Dunnellon, a 12-and-under travel ball squad, traveled Sept. 17 and 18, to Clearwater to compete in the Softballs for Hearts Michelle Smith Showcase. A total of 17 teams participated in the tournament, and there could only be a solo winning team, which was Team Dunnellon as it pulled from worst to first in a matter of 24 hours. The opening day of the tournament was a rough one for Team Dunnellon, as it struggled to catch the necessary breaks. A dreadful 0-3 record was what it had at the end of the day. However, Team Dunnellon managed to secure the No. 4 seed in the Silver Bracket, due to its low ERA. When Dunnellon lost, it did so by allowing very few runs. But Team Dunnellons main problem was scoring as it appeared they left their bats at home. If Team Dunnellon wanted any chance to get past the first round, it would have to hit the ball more effectively than its first three games, because of the singlegame elimination format for Sundays competition. Team Dunnellon managed to overcome a couple of early runs by the Razorbacks in the first game, as Team Dunnellon squeezed out a 3-2 victory. Gillian Heinritz, the winning pitcher, tossed a complete game, striking out six. On offense, leadoff hitter Kasey Bernstein was 2-for-2 with a double and run scored. Team Dunnellons second game was a rematch against Diamonds, which won 6-3 during Saturdays pool play. Dunnellons redemption game went well, as it reversed its outing of the previous game against the Diamonds and then some. Team Dunnellon easily defeated the Diamonds, 6-2, as Heinritz threw another complete game and striking out two. Michelle Ruiz led the offense, going 2-for-3. But her defensive play was also key; robbing a hit on what wouldve been a single for the Diamonds in its final at bat. The victory against the Diamonds, the top seed, set up another rematch, this time against the third-seeded Outlaws. After two straight wins, Dunnellon appeared ready to claim what it had come for a championship. Kasey Bernstein took the mound for Team Dunnellon with Heinritz relieving her in the third inning. Team Dunnellons offense was clutch when it needed to be clutch, as the Outlaws took a 3-1 lead in the third inning. With time running out, Team Dunnellon would need its offense in the fourth inning to overcome the deficit. Kaitlyn Burchard started with walk, followed by Odessa and Olivia Evans, who each reached on an error and a walk to load the bases with no outs. Haley Coleman, from Citrus County, plated a run with a sacrifice fly to score Burchard. Kasey Bernstein grounded into a fielders choice to score Odessa Evans and tie the game at 3-all. Odessa Evans scored when Michelle Ruiz reached on an error to break the 3-all tie. Now clinging to a 4-3 lead entering the bottom of the fourth, Team Dunnellon never allowed the Outlaws a chance to rally as Gillian Heinritz retired the side in order, striking out the final batter. They showed up much more prepared to hit the ball, Team Dunnellon coach Pat Heinritz said. On Saturday, we didnt get many hits. On Sunday, we had many more hits, timely hits and good pitching. It felt good to win a championship again. Im proud of the girls. We went one day from 03 to 3-0. That shows how we never give up. Special to the Riverland NewsTeam Dunnellon, winners of the Hearts Michelle Smith Showcase Sept. 17 and 18 in Clearwater, front row, are: Coach Carlos Ruiz, Mandy Bernstein, Olivia Evans, Michelle Ruiz, Odessa Evans, Kaitlyn Burchard; back row, coach Mark Bernstein, Leighann Ballien, Kasey Bernstein, Gillian Heinritz, Haley Coleman, Cassandra Chestnut, coach Jeremy Burchard and coach Pat Heinritz. Travel ball team wins Softballs for Hearts Showcase Dunnellon JV football squad falls to South Sumter, 28-8 BUSHNELL The Dunnellon High School junior varsity football team left the South Sumter field Thursday with a loss, 28-8. We didnt have the intensity like we usually do, Dunnellon coach Archie Smith said. We just needed to be a little more aggressive, with our blocking, and tackling. Dunnellon began the competition with a kickoff by Devin Simms, as the Raiders began their possession at the 24-yard line, but easily gained yardage as the Tigers kept getting penalties two offsides and one facemask. South Sumter capitalized on the Dunnellon miscues; picking up their first touchdown with 9:30 remaining in the first quarter. With sweat and much effort Dunnellon tried hard, but couldnt take the ball down the field as South Sumter scored its next touchdown on a fourthdown play with 9:46 left in the first half, taking a 14-0 lead. The Tigers and Raiders spent the rest of the second quarter trying to get past each others tough defenses, until finally, with less than 30 seconds remaining in the half, Tyler Powell handed the ball off to Ronald Boley, who scored the Tigers first touchdown of the game, cutting the Raiders lead to 14-7. As the Tigers tried and failed to cross the goal line and earn more points, the Raiders managed two more touchdowns in the second half, finalizing the score at 28-8. I think physically we were matched, it came to who wanted it more, Smith told his players after the game. We had moments where I knew that was my team, but then others I didnt recognize you guys. I am proud of Ronald Boley and Tyler Powell. We will learn from our mistakes this week and be ready for our game on Wednesday against Nature Coast. Assistant coach Bob Abbatecola added: Monday and Tuesday were going to have to work hard and get better. Keep your heads high; you win some and lose some. Dunnellon played at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Nature Coast. Results were not available at press time. DREW RONDEAU/For the Riverland NewsDunnellon High Schools Jesse McMahon attempts to pick up some yardage against the South Sumter defense in the Tigers junior varsity contest Thursday, Sept. 29. PATRICK HEINRITZ For the Riverland News Despite losses, volleyball team piecing it together Staying busy, the Lady Tigers had three games this past week, with one home game and two away games. Dunnellon showed the crowd how it never give ups, even when the Lady Tigers falter. On Monday, Sept. 26, Dunnellon played Belleview at home, losing each game of the match, 25-15, 25-15, 25-21. As the games went, the Lady Tigers started working together as a team. All wanting to win, they talked more, calling for the ball and mixing things up setting it to different hitters, and placing the ball in the corners so the other team couldnt return the ball. On Tuesday, Sept. 27, the Lady Tigers hit the road to play Nature Coast. Starting the first game with confidence and remembering the teams weaknesses, the score was 25-18 with Nature Coast winning. The second game the Tigers lost again, 25-9, where they were not communicating with one another, and making mistakes. In the third game Dunnellons energy was down from the previous game and they continued making mistakes, losing 25-13. Having Wednesday to practice to work on the mistakes, the Lady Tigers traveled to Hernando on Thursday, Sept. 29. The girls had rotation and block coverage confusion all night, as they fell in three sets, 25-8, 25-16, 2514. Coming home with a loss did not exactly make them want to give up. Seeing a particular fan made the team walk out proud with heads held high. The fan was a previous Dunnellon High School principal who drove from Dunnellon to Hernando to watch the team play. The Lady Tigers played at home Monday against Crystal River; against Tavares at home Tuesday; and Wednesday at Lake Weir. OMAR DESARDEN/For the Riverland News Dunnellons Abby Hatfield (1) returns a volley Thursday, Sept. 22, against Eustis. The Lady Tigers dropped their three matches this past week to Belleview, Nature Coast and Hernando.

After meeting some of these people I can understand why they would want to abandon their body if only for a moment. My question is, why did they return? Whether this was a real experience or not, only their hairdresser knows for sure. I have made it one of the primary purposes of my life to stay in my body as long as I live. In fact, I have developed my body so that there is ample room for my La-ZBoy chair and me. I like to be comfortable. Truth compels me to say that I have never experienced an out-of-body experience. Every night when I go to sleep, I am unconscious until morning but I do not think that counts except when it comes to sheep, but who gives a baa-baa about sheep. I have a hard time relating to these people with such esoteric experiences. I do not doubt them, I just do not relate to them. One thing that I can relate to is an out-of-cash experience. There, I said it. Confession is good for the soul. For many years, I was ashamed of having these kinds of experiences. I thought I was the only one in the whole world that ever experienced such trauma in their lives. I kept it a secret for many years. But all that has changed. I am ready to come out of the closet and confess that when it comes to cash, I am simply out of it. Its not that I have always had an over abundance of cash. Throughout the years, it has come in a little here and a little there but mostly nowhere. I can never remember a time when my life was flooded with so much cash I did not know what to do with it all. Being out-of-cash must not be as bad as it sounds. I suppose the terrible thing is how a person gets to that point in life. I wanted to write a book about my out-ofcash experience but I only got up to chapter 11. From everything I can gather, everybody seems to be out-of-cash. Even our government has come to such a perilous place as this. The government used to say, I feel your pain, and now they are really feeling our pain. The government is not broken as some people attest; the government is simply broke. Now they know how I really feel. Being out-of-cash does have some advantage. Last Tuesday, for example, was a long hard day and I was glad to get home. When I did get home, my wife greeted me at the door and said, Lets go out for supper tonight. I dont feel like cooking. I looked at her and said rather soberly, I sure would love to go out tonight for supper, but Im really out-of-cash. My wife gave me one of her trademark looks and said, Lets use your credit card. I would have argued but I was simply out-of-arguments. I must say that through the years she has been very generous with my credit card, which may be why I am really out-of-cash. Being out-of-cash is not really the worst thing that can happen to a person. About three weeks ago, I had to go out of town for a little trip and forgot to fill up my gas tank. I didnt even think about it. After all, with all the car payments and the monthly insurance payments you would think the car would come up with a little bit of cash on its own. But no, it leaves everything to me. My car once told me it was the responsibility of the owner. I am not saying that my car is contrary but I was about 7 miles out of town when I ran out-of-gas. It does not matter how much cash you have on hand, if you run out of gas without a gas station nearby it just does not matter. The mens store where I usually buy my clothing was running a sale on shirts, the kind I usually wear. I had some errands to run and by the time I got to the mens store, they had sold the last shirt. Im sorry, the salesperson said, but youre out-of-luck. I am not quite sure which is worse, being16 Riverland News, Thursday, October 6, 2011 Attend the worship service of your choice An out-of-cash experience CHURCH EVENT 100th birthday celebration JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsMolly Burrell, center, is greeted by her granddaughter, Helen Astling, 18 months, and Katie Astling, left, during her 100th birthday celebration Saturday at Rainbow Springs Golf & Country Club.

out-of-cash or being outof-luck. The truth of the matter is, no matter how much cash you have on hand if there are no more shirts left, you are simply out-of-luck. A long time ago, I faced the simple truth that money cannot buy everything. I might be able to rent a little bit of happiness but it does not last forever. I have learned that the most important thing in life is to be balanced. Too much of anything, even a good thing, can really be harmful. This must be what Solomon had in mind when he wrote, Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain (Proverbs 30:8-9 KJV). The problem today is not that we do not have enough; we simply are not thankful enough for what we have.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P.O.
