City offers to help; pitches its fiber program as asset OCALA Despite hurt feelings from the Dunnellon City Council, Mondays special joint meeting between the City Council and Marion County Commission appeared jovial and productive. The hurt feelings are a result for the countys plans to construct a Drainage Retention Area (DRA) on East Pennsylvania Avenue, west of the Rainbow River. City officials contend they were never informed of the project; however, county officials said plans for the project were given to city staff months ago. 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. Mayor Fred Ward pointed out how that is three parcels within the city limits as well as on the Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) now off the tax rolls. However, the three parcels of property were zoned strictly as residential and were undeveloped. But Monday, both sides had buried the hatchet and agreed to move. I hope we were able to happily resolve the DRA issue, Commissioner Kathy Bryant said. We hope you are all happy with the results. Ward pointed out the obvious. It was a communication issue, he said. Still, City Councilwoman Lynne McAndrew, midway through the meeting, asked if there were any other plans city officials should know about. Well, were going to annex the city, joked one official. And were going to move SERVINGDUNNELLONANDRAINBOWSPRINGS Thursday, October 13, 2011Vol 29 No. 52 75 cents VISIT US: www.riverlandnews.comCALL US: 489-2731 E-MAIL: editor@riverlandnews.com WHATS HAPPENING Food 4 Kids Inc. to host food drive SaturdayFood 4 Kids Inc. will host a food drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, at Walmart.

Korea The much-need fiber to launch Greenlight Dunnellon Communications Inc. is on its way. Eddie Esch, the citys director of public services and utilities, informed the City Council at its Oct. 5 workshop that the shipment of 132 miles of fiber was set to leave a South Korean port last week and should arrive in Dunnellon by the last week of October or the first week of November at the latest. Once the fiber is here, crews can begin installing it along power poles where needed or run through the underground conduit already put in place by Hewitt Company. Currently, the eight-mile stretch from the city limits to the Level 3 station where Greenlight has to connect to the Cloud has already been completed.

FFA members set for trek to nationals Kayla Reed and Taylor Kouva, freshmen at Dunnellon High School, are busily preparing for their upcoming trip to Indianapolis, Ind. And, in a way, its a landmark moment for the former members of the Dunnellon Middle School FFA Chapter. The two teenagers will compete at the FFA National Conference, and its been at least 15 or more years since anyone from the DMS FFA Chapter has competed at the event, which will be Oct. 18 to 22. Im super-excited, Reed said. Its all Ive been able to talk about. I remember when I joined in sixth grade and that was the thing everyone talked about, was qualifying for nationals. To compete, the students first had to make their way through the Florida State FFA Convention in which Reed and Marc Navetta, her original partner in the project, competed in the Agriscience Fair. Their project involved Homecoming Queen See AIRPORT page 3 Girls will represent DMS at FFA National Conference Kayla Reed, left, and Taylor Kouva will compete at natioanls Oct. 18 to. 22.

The purpose is to show residents of Levy and Marion counties how to contact their senators, congressional representatives and local media. This is not a political or partisan event. Everyone is welcome. Citizens are invited to bring photos of crumbling infrastructure to reveal how important it is for government entities to maintain and repair services on which they depend, from schools and parks to bridges, roads and the power grid. The group believes Americans want to work. That fact, paired with the need for repair of American infrastructure, is a perfect storm for citizen engagement. All votersIndependents, Republicans, Democrats and all other party memberscan add their voices to this cause. Handouts will consist of phone numbers, e-mail addresses, USPS addresses and Web sites for senators, congressional representatives and local media. There will be no petitions to sign because this is a non-partisan issue. The goal is to educate and engage.

To be more precise, there are nine new deputies, all set to patrol throughout Dunnellon and the outlying areas if needed. Thats because this past Thursday, Marion County Sheriff Ed Dean officially deputized the officers with the Dunnellon Police Department. Currently, the lone other municipality thats been deputized are officers from the Ocala Police Department. With the city and county sharing in an interlocal agreement, this will allow officers with Dunnellon to respond to emergencies on an as needed basis. In addition to that, it will allow law enforcement officials to serve warrants if needed, pursue suspects without calling for assistance from the sheriffs department if it is not needed and other official capacities. Im proud to call you friends and partners, Sheriff Ed Dean told the members of the Dunnellon Police Department. We appreciate all that you already do for us; we really do. I dont have to do this, but I want to do this. Sheriff Dean explained he could have simply mailed the forms to sign to the department, had the paperwork returned, file it and move on with each agencys business of keeping the streets safe. I would miss the opportunity to challenge each of you, he said, asking for Chief Joanne Blacks blessing to do so. We must remember who our customer is. The customer, Sheriff Dean explained, is the taxpayer. Weve always tried to emphasize that here, he said. We really focus on who the customer is; its the folks who pay the bill around here. The bad guys arent the customers; sure they have their rights, but they go to jail. No apologies, but theyre going to jail. Youre not a customer. However, its the customer who deserves service, dignity, respect and courtesy, he said. Be very, very patient, he stressed. When youre on a call, its important to distinguish if its a customer or a bad guy. If its a customer, they want service, dignity, respect and courtesy. We all do. Remember who we are talking to. If we ignore who we are talking to, theyre going to tell their friends. If we dont have what I call the twin pillars respect and trust theyre just going to remember how badly they were treated. Sheriff Dean said if the customers are given those four things; it will pay off when needed most. You may need their help someday, he explained. You may need them to help step in and protect you; people will know and remember how theyve been treated when they go home. Black noted how much the relationship between the two agencies has grown and improved since taking over as the chief. We just really appreciate the opportunity to be a part of this, Black said. City Manager Lisa Algiere praised the moment. It reflects well on our police department, Algiere said during the ceremony. We are just so very proud of them. the Rainbow River, one bottle at a time, joked another. The responses drew laughter from most in the room. Despite the off-color humor, officials on both sides agreed the meeting was long overdue and plan to schedule a joint meeting on a quarterly basis. But those in attendance were quick to discuss the business at hand. The first, and most discussed issue, are economic development opportunities at the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport. Commissioners informed the City Council and other officials a public workshop has been scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday, Nov. 29, to discuss the airports master plan and perhaps upgrade it. County commissioners invited the City Council to be a part of the process. But they were pointed in asking what ideas the City Council had to help address the issue of bringing in economic opportunities to the area to create jobs. What do you have that you could put on the table today? County Commission Chairman Stan McLain asked. Though city officials didnt have specific ideas; they pointed to the citys Fiber to the Home program. The city is hopeful to have it up and running by mid-December. We can go to the airport with fiber, Ward said. Perhaps that makes it a little more viable by attracting companies that need that service. County officials said they would instruct staff to research the opportunities that the fiber program could lend to attracting companies to the area. That could certainly be a part of the discussion, McLain said. Where does it best fit in? Officials stressed its important to attract businesses that would benefit from the airports location while the airport could benefit from new businesses coming into the area. Were looking for high-paying professional jobs, Ward said. I dont know what niche that should be, but an industry that would benefit from broadband. Hightech jobs that have support jobs that go with it. Vice Mayor F.C. Fred Stark views the airport as a golden opportunity. Its got so much going for it, he added. Ward said the city would certainly like to avail itself of the county in any way it can to attract companies to the area. City Manager Lisa Algiere said any county official who would like to tour Greenlight Dunnellon Communications is welcome to do so. We need a vision in which we set strategic goals, he said. And we need those goals to be specific to at least narrow the focus of what we want to accomplish. The City Council as well as county officials praised the work of John Helms, the airports manager for the past two years. I hear (Mr. Helms) is doing a really, really good job, that he has a very high level of interest in the airport and its success, McAndrew said. McLain echoed that sentiment. Mr. Helms is an asset to our staff, he said. Hes trying to bring the airport forward.

River views N ow is the time to plant annuals such as pansies and petunias, while Snapdragons will add some autumn color. Fertilize sparingly or better still use organic as you plant to ensure good growth. Perennials can also be planted. Elephant ears, crinum daylily, and gladiolus will settle and establish for the spring. Watering should be one to two times a week and no more hard pruning. Plants need to settle back for the winter, and any top growth will help protect crowns from any sneaky frosts. Taking old flowers off will encourage new flowers, and now is the time to lift and divide many perennials for bulking up on stock. If you plan to try daffodils, tulips or hyacinth bulbs put them in the fridge for 60 days at 40 degrees, or 120 days at 50 degrees. I personally have never been successful, or seen these grow, but if you can, let us know your experiences. Mistletoe can soon be harvested for winter decoration. This is a parasite and if not cut off will kill the host tree, so its worth the cutting. Banana, avocado and guava should be fertilized now that October has arrived. Sweet potatoes can begin to be dug as needed. Plant cabbage, cauliflower and brussel sprouts. These vegetables need the cold to produce good crops. Carrots, beets, turnips, onions and radishes thrive well as the air and soil cool. Broccoli planted in late October should be ready to harvest in 90-plus days. Plant two weeks earlier and you should harvest at 60 days from planting. Cauliflower should be planted in the next two weeks to ensure maturity before the frosts, as it is slightly tender. Dig starter holes twice the size of the container, put 50/50 manure soil back in the bottom, add organic fertilizer, plant and back fill the hole with the mix. Greens, cabbage and Brussels need to be 18 inches apart with rows approximately 30 inches apart for easy care and harvesting. Leaf Lettuce will produce a good crop planted now, along with arugula and spinach. Beet growing can be productive. In the UK, I would scatter 8 to 12 seeds in an area 12 inches in diameter, repeat this. Leave the seedlings Oh, the things my boy says Big shoes to fill A llow me to introduce myself. My name is Audrey Beem and Ill be joining you in your living room every Thursday if youll let me. Many of you already know me, being a Dunnellon girl for the past 30-plus years. But for those of you who dont, Ill fill in a few blanks. I was born Audrey Pugliese in Paterson, N.J., but soon moved to Dunnellon where Ive lived ever since. I married young, divorced young and bore two beautiful daughters, Amanda and Alicia, who are now my best friends. Along the way, I met the man of my dreams, Russell, whom Ive now been married to for almost 20 years. We live in Rainbow Springs Woodlands with our tiny Maltese, Roxy. Im lucky enough to still have both my parents around. I have two wonderful brothers and both of my daughters have given me a grandchild. So, my cup runneth over when it comes to family. We are always busy on the weekends, all together, laughing and having fun. Oh, and tons of food too. Im Italian, so everything includes food. Side note: Youll be hearing much more about the grandchildren in the weeks to follow. Although I might have to change the name of my 12-year-old granddaughter, so her friends will still think shes cool. Besides the family, my main passion is writing and that includes a little bit of everything; poetry, letters and greeting cards. I even take online writing courses and I completed a novel. But dont run out to the neighborhood bookstore just yet, because sad to say it didnt get published. But it did give me the experience and knowledge that I needed to attempt novel No. 2, which Ive only just begun but who knows. The thing about writing though is it really doesnt matter if it gets published or how many people read it. All that matters is that youre allowed to write. Its getting your feelings and emotions down on paper and allowing the thoughts to flow out at a rapid pace. As Im watching and living life, Im always thinking about what a great story this moment would make and I guess thats part of being a writer. I play out scenarios in my head all the time. It makes for an interesting day. So now I have some really big shoes to fill. Kathleen Wallace was funny and entertaining and Im sad to see her go. Sometimes when my Riverland News would arrive her article would be the first one Id read. She had a fan and never knew it. Sometimes I would agree with her and sometimes I wouldnt, but she always made me laugh. And now Im going to attempt to take over and hopefully be just as endearing. Dont worry, my family tree is equally filled with eccentric, odd characters who will give me plenty of fodder to write about. In that department, I dont think youll be disappointed. Im always open for comments and suggestions. I dont take criticism well. Im an eternal optimist, which might annoy some people and youll read about my family often. Please feel free to react, respond and even offer suggestions on subjects you would like to hear about. So sit back and let me entertain you. I hope youll be pleased.

We are proud to live in Dunnellon, a community that pulls together to support one another. A part of old America not seen anymore, but can still be found in Dunnellon. Again thank you and God bless you all. Pastor E. Patrick Anthony Cross At The River Cowboy Church Rainbows End Golf Course hosts great eventsNeither high wind, rain or darkness could put a halt to the fun we had at Rainbows End Golf Course this past Saturday. The Stirrups N Strides Therapeutic Riding Center benefit was great fun again this year, and the night golf outing was a real challenge due to the rain and lack of moonlight, but we had a wonderful time. Thank you to Don and Linda DeLaney and your crew for a delightful day. The lunch and supper were top shelf also. Dave Farrell Dunnellon City officials seem to have disdain for public, interactionWhat has happened to City Council civility? On Sept. 26, the county storm water engineer appeared before the Dunnellon City Council to explain plans for a storm water retention pond along Pennsylvania Avenue. The Council promptly criticized the plan and claimed that the county devised plans without communicating with the city. The truth of the matter is that the retention project was origiI cannot recall the number of times Ive heard the phrase, out of the mouth of babes. I personally believe it resonates much more since Ive become a father. I see a lot of me in my children, both good and bad; though I prefer to focus on the good, because theyll grow out of the bad. Honestly, it would be a blast to let my children write a column about the observances of two bright-eyed children and the view of the world from their perspective. But their inability to express themselves clearly might come off sounding like the occasional City Council meeting and if you have ever been to one, you certainly know what Im referring to. However, that is certainly a topic we could tackle for a lengthy period of time. Back to my original point. I got that dreaded phone call the other day from Mom. Do you know what your son did today? No, I honestly dont, I replied, quickly adding. But I thought he was our son. Silence. Apparently my point was not funny. He does bad and hes my offspring. He does brilliantly and mom takes the credit. Similar to the tree falling in the forest and if a man is nearby its likely his fault. He bit a girl, the wife said. Oh and why did he do that? I asked rhetorically. Because she was standing too close to him, I was told. So she was crowding his space and cramping his style? I responded. Again, silence. I am pretty sure I heard a pin drop despite the excited chatter of two toddlers coming from the backseat. Upon arriving home later that evening and talking to him about his day, we broached the subject of biting people, especially girls. We dont bite people Jackson, especially girls, I sternly explained. Why? he asked. Well thats because its not nice and one day you might want to kiss her and shes going to remember you bit her, I explained. Not missing a beat, Jackson responded quickly: Why would I want to kiss her daddy if I cant bite her? Now I could tell you he gets the sarcasm from his mothers side of the family, but Id be lying. Plus, those of you who know me well enough are shaking your head, saying hes just like his father. Still, it doesnt end there. He was playing on his swing set recently, asking me to push him on the swing. Daddy, push me to the moon, higher, he said excitedly. So I got him as high as he could go. He giggled and squealed. Thats my man, he told me. On a recent trek into Dunnellon on a Sunday morning with the boys in tow, we stopped for breakfast. Of course, Daddy bumped into 20 people Ive met through my time here at the Riverland News.

nally identified in a 2005 Jones, Edmunds & Associates Dunnellon Watershed Management Plan cooperatively funded by Dunnellon, the County and SWFWMD and that the county engineer had been communicating with the Dunnellon utilities manager and community development director. I dont think it is the fault of the county that city staff does not communicate effectively with the Council and that the Council does not know their own history. This incident is not unusual because the City Council does not do well in accepting public input, in fact all too often, seems to resent it and is prone to ignore or berate those who offer such input. This can result in poor decisions. A good example is the contrived capitulation to the Rainbow River Ranch developer, which promises to be costly to the river as well as to the pocketbooks of the citizens. Another example is the poorly written River Etiquette Ordinance, which contains misspellings, poorly constructed sentences and at least one physically impossible requirement. I twice submitted the same detailed comments about the ordinance by email to the Council members, but they ignored my input during their deliberations. The city officials, particularly the mayor and city manager, need to participate in meetings, workshops, seminars and public events in the region. On Sept. 10, an excellent 9/11 memorial ceremony was held at the Dunnellon American Legion. No Dunnellon government representatives were present. On Sept. 21, SWFWMD and the Florida Springs Institute sponsored a Springs Challenge at the Rainbow Rivers Club, which was very informative pertaining to our concerns for water resources. Again, no Dunnellon government representatives were present. On Sept. 27, the Marion County Legislative Delegation held their annual meeting in Ocala seeking input from a wide crosssection of agencies and organizations. The County Commission chairman spoke, the Ocala mayor spoke and the Belleview mayor spoke. Again, no Dunnellon government representatives were present. I am not the first person to write about this problem in the City of Dunnellon. Others who have appeared before the City Council have been dismayed by the lack of civility, particularly from the mayor. You cant learn and you cant do right without listening. Dont kill the messengers. Burt Eno, PhD Dunnellon Riverland News, Thursday, October 13, 2011 5 SR 200 CR 484 Walmart N M a r i o n C o u n t y s F l o o r i n g S u p e r s t o r e Mon.

I explained to Jackson who Chief Black was and she was the police chief. Why does she do that? Jackson asked. Because she loves her job, I responded.

great regional talent. We didnt really change the way we booked bands, but we wanted to give everyone in the community a reason to come out. We have the Jazz for Jazz lovers; we have the rock n roll and we have a bit of country. Theres something there for everyone. Because of such a massive outpouring of feedback about the event a year ago, organizers are expanding the event, not only with music, food and frothy beverages, but with familyrelated events as well as a Poker Crawl, a combination of Poker Run and Pub Crawl. The Poker Crawl will start at noon at Gruffs Tap & Grille and conclude at 4 p.m. at Local Legends. The event, which benefits the Boys & Girls Club of Dunnellon, is $5 per hand. A completed Score Card must be returned to Local Legends, where prize winners will be announced at 5 p.m. Were really excited about the Poker Crawl and doing something to include other businesses, Vaughn said. Last years Kids Zone was so popular, the time frame has been expanded, Vaughn said. And there will be more for the children to prior to the main event. The Kids Zone will once again be at Ernie Mills Park along Bostick Street. Pop Warner Football will host the concession stand, while Jackie Stevios Phantastic Sounds will perform on stage. Her singers will perform music such as Broadway, todays hits, oldies, country and patriotic. A petting zoo will also be available. The main event of Jazz Up Dunnellon kicks off at 5 p.m. and concludes at 10 p.m., as bands and vendors will be posted throughout East and West Pennsylvania Avenue. Just like a year ago, speed limits will be reduced to 20 mph throughout the night of the event. No parking will be allowed on East Pennsylvania, designated areas for paid parking will be on East Pennsylvania. Traffic will not be allowed through the Historic District along West Pennsylvania and Chestnut Street (State Road 40). West Pennsylvania will be closed off at 4 p.m., while the side streets along East Pennsylvania will be closed off beginning at 3:30 p.m. Vaughn stressed the need for both courtesy and safety. Its important for people to not park in other peoples yards, she said. And remember to use the cross walks, because its the safest way for people to get across (U.S.) 41. Three beer gardens will be set up; however, only chamber-approved cups will be used for alcoholic beverages on the streets during the event. A volunteer staff will monitor and enforce the rules. Those without such a cup drinking alcoholic beverages will be required to empty their drink or potentially be fined, law enforcement officials said. The whole idea behind this is, we believe people can take a minute out of their worries and daily grind, Vaughn said. So we wanted to be able to include everybody in the community. Mardi Gras-themed accessories and Jazz Up Dunnellon shirts will be on sale the night of Jazz Up. The Jazz Up Dunnellon shirts will display the sponsors for this years event. The Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce will have designated driving offered by Scallys. Dunnellon Fire Rescue, in conjunction with Munroe Regional Medical Center, will offer Just Hands CPR as well as fire extinguisher training from 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday during the festival. Dunnellon Fire Rescue, which is competing for a $10,000 grant to be awarded by Liberty Mutual through its fire safety program, Be Fire Smart Pledge, will have a computer station set up to allow Jazz Up attendees to vote online. For information, visit www.dunnellonchamber. org or call the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce at (352) 489-2320. Officials began testing the system Monday, connecting City Hall and the police and fire departments to provide necessary traffic to see how well the components are working. The testing this week is being done simultaneously with the current system each location is currently on so as not to impede any work that needed to be done. We need to get traffic on it, he said. We need to see how its performing. Esch said officials are hopeful the full system will be online and active by mid-December, but explained they were hesitant to give a firm date. We just dont want to mislead the public, he said. We dont want to hit snags and be delayed and have people expecting it. Thats been one of major problems with Greenlight Communications thus far. Originally, former General Manger Jesse Mason, had planned to have the system operational in the spring. It never happened and he resigned shortly thereafter due to personal reasons. Greenlight was tentatively to be up and running in July, but officials hit a snag when it could not acquire fiber or a firm delivery date from the company it had agreed to purchase it from when officials started the initiative. Esch, who has overseen most of the technical aspects of the much anticipated enterprise operation, said there was a minor snag in the latest order, but he assured the City Council the company supplying the material would make good. Theyve offered to cover the costs of getting the rest of the material here in a timely manner, Esch said, noting its a very small portion of what the city needs. They said they would graciously pay to get here on time; so I didnt want to penalize them for a communication error. Once the system is completely operation, Esch explained, the city will likely test the complete package with friendlies such as Mayor Fred Ward, other members of the council as well as at Greenlight Communications to make sure no bugs are in the system. Resident Mary Ann Hilton praised Esch for the report, but did have one major question. Is there a channel lineup? she asked. Esch and City Manager Lisa Algiere said most of the programming is complete, but officials are still working out final details for the remainder of the lineup. They said they hoped to have it completed within the next couple of weeks. Costs for services have not been announced. The City Council, in July, approved a $30,000-plus rate study that Algiere had noted would be completed in six to eight weeks, but the results of that study have not been released. Officials are banking on the success of Greenlight to help pay off more than $3 million in bonds spent thus far on the project. According to the recently completed budget sessions, officials are expected to make a $747,123 bond payment by November. How that payment will be made has not been made public. In the budget, approved Sept. 26, by the City Council, officials are expecting Greenlight Communications to make slightly more than $2 million this year once the fiber to the home program is completely operational and available to its entire coverage area. Esch did make one guarantee about the system. The quality will be impeccable, he told the Council. In other business, the City Council: OKd Dunnellon Fire Rescues pursuit of a Department of Homeland Security Assistance to Firefighters Grant for Safety Equipment. The grant is for $25,182 and requires a 5 percent match from the city. Approved the acceptance of a FDLE JAG Grant for Community Policing Events. The grant awarded totaled $32,500. 6 Riverland News, Thursday, October 13, 2011 0009HZ1 0009IBG 0009H1E 13th Annual JAZZ UP DUNNELLON Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce Media Sponsor SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2011 12PM-10PM 0 0 0 9 8 L C Whether youre a subscriber or you picked up a copy from your local newsstand, we just want to say .

M any people enjoy watching the changing seasons, and in many parts of the country we find ourselves at that time of the year when the shifting from one season to another seems most enjoyable. In many parts of the country, the lush green foliage gradually fades to an autumn rainbow of yellow-orange-red-brown. Cool air brings light jackets out of closets. Pumpkins and decorative corn begin to appear on porches and doorsteps. But, seasons are not the only things that change. When it comes to some changes, we at Social Security need to know about them. If you receive Social Security benefits, there are certain things that we need to know about you in order to continue paying your benefits. Here is a reminder of some of the most important reporting responsibilities for people who receive Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Your address: Even if you receive your payments by direct deposit or debit card (as most people do), we still need a good mailing address so we can get in touch with you when we need to. You can inform us of a change of address, as well as telephone number, at our website, www.socialsecurity.gov. Your direct deposit information: If your payments go to your financial institution for direct deposit, you need to notify us of any changes. If you change your account information without letting us know, your payment could go to the wrong place. You can change your deposit information at our website www.socialsecurity.gov. Your work, if disabled: If you receive disability benefits, we need to know about any work you do. If you start work, stop work, or have any change in your work, hours, or pay, we need to know. Your living arrangements, if you receive SSI: People who receive SSI are paid, in part, based on financial need. Payments may change based on your living arrangements. Because of that, we need to know how many people are in your household and how the expenses are shared. There are other things we need to know about, such as if youre institutionalized, if youre no longer able to handle your finances, or if youve been convicted of a crime. Learn more about reporting responsibilities for people receiving retirement or survivors benefits at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10077.htm l. Learn more about reporting responsibilities for people receiving Social Security disability benefits at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10153.htm l. Learn more about reporting responsibilities for people receiving SSI at www.socialsecurity.gov/p ubs/11011.html. Some changes can be reported online at www.socialsecurity.gov. You can report changes to us by calling 1-800-7721213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) or contacting your local office. Seasons change; theres little to report there. But, when it comes to changes in the lives of people who receive benefits from Social Security, please remember to keep us informed. Social Security Questions and Answers Question: How do I update or correct the name on my Social Security card? Answer: To update or correct the name on your Social Security card: Complete an Application for A Social Security Card (Form SS-5), available at www.socialsecurity.gov/online/ss-5.pdf; Show us original documents proving your legal name change, identity, and U.S. citizenship (if you have not already established your citizenship with us), or immigration status if you are not a U.S. citizen; and Take or mail your completed application and original documents to your local Social Security office. Note that we must see originals and cannot use photocopies. We will return any original document you mail to us. Learn more at www.socialsecurity.gov. Question: How do I report a lost Social Security card? Answer: You do not have to report a lost Social Security card. In fact, reporting a lost or stolen card to Social Security will not prevent misuse of your Social Security number. You should let us know if someone is using your number to work. For more information, call 800-772-1213 or TTY at 800-325-0778. If you think someone is using your number, there are several other actions you should take: Contact the Federal Trade Commission online at www.ftc.gov/bcdp/edu/microsites/idtheft or call 877-ID-THEFT (877-4384338); File an online complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center at www.ic3.gov; Contact the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit by calling 800-908-4490 between 8 am. and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday.; and Monitor your credit report. Question: I work in retirement. How much can I earn and still collect full Social Security retirement benefits? Answer: Social Security uses the formulas below, depending on your age, to determine how much you can earn before we must reduce your benefit: If you are younger than full retirement age: $1 in benefits will be deducted for each $2 you earn above the annual limit. For 2011, that limit is $14,160. In the year you reach your full retirement age: $1 in benefits will be deducted for each $3 you earn above a different limit, but we count only earnings before the month you reach full retirement age. For 2011, this limit is $37,680. Starting with the month you reach full retirement age: you will get your benefits with no limit on your earnings. Find out your full retirement age at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/agei ncrease.htm Question: What are the four parts of Medicare? Answer: There are four parts to Medicare. Hospital insurance (Part A) helps pay hospital bills and some followup care. The taxes you paid while you were working financed this coverage, so, for most people, its premium free. Medical insurance (Part B) helps pay doctors bills and other services. You must pay a monthly premium for Medicare Part B and you have the option to refuse this coverage. Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans generally cover many of the same benefits a Medigap policy would cover, such as extra days in the hospital after you have used the number of days Medicare covers. People with Medicare Parts A and B can choose to receive all of their health care services through one of these provider organizations under Part C. There might be additional premiums required for some plans; and Prescription drug coverage (Part D) helps pay for medications doctors prescribe for treatment. Anyone who has Medicare hospital insurance (Part A), medical insurance (Part B), or a Medicare Advantage plan (Part C) is eligible for prescription drug coverage (Part D). Joining a Medicare prescription drug plan is voluntary and you pay an additional monthly premium for the coverage. Adon Williams is the Social Security district manager in Ocala.

Riverland News, Thursday, October 13, 2011 9 0009IE2 Preparing a fall garden? Heres a few tips B elieve it or not, fall is here and even the summer temperatures will be on their way out soon. And fall comes with plenty of perks: hot apple cider, corn field mazes, family festivals, several holidays and some of the most pleasant weather possible. Fall is also one of the best times to plant certain vegetables, flowers and trees. Trees planted during the fall will have a whole season, plus the cool winter and mild spring to become established before the oftenbrutal summer sun returns. If youre thinking of trying your hand at gardening this season, read on for some hints from UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service. n Location matters. Vegetables, for example, need a minimum of six hours of full sun each day and plenty of water. Make sure a water source is nearby, such as a spigot or a hose long enough to reach the garden. n Gardens take time. Before you begin to plant, youll need to spend some time developing a garden plan and complete initial land preparation. Gardens need attention every day, so start out small so you dont get overwhelmed. Try small flower beds instead of large, landscaped planters or plant vegetables in pots or in a small patch instead of a fullscale garden. n Plant what? Some good cool season vegetables are beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, Chinese cabbage, collards, lettuce, mustard, onions, parsley, radish and spinach. Some flowers that flourish in the fall are chrysanthemums, pansies, petunias and snap dragons. n Healthy soil. Soil quality affects the health and success of your future garden. If you walk the garden aisles in a store, youll find many soil fertilizers and amendments, but without testing your soil, you wont know whats needed for your plants to do well. Though soil testing sounds pricy and too advanced for a simple backyard garden, you can get a free soil pH test at UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service. n Need help? UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service offers assistance through its plant clinic. Staffed by volunteer Master Gardeners and overseen by the Horticulture extension agent, residents can call or stop in to bring their problem plants, garden gripes or mysterious bugs that are bugging their buds and blooms. For a free soil test kit or other garden needs, call (352) 671-8400 or visit www.marioncountyfl.org/extensionservice.htm. Questions?

Suddenly Debbie Love and Stephen Ayres appeared at Jennifer Castro and Karen Noffsingers doors to congratulate them. Their names were read over the intercom.

She attended the University of Florida to major in English. She is certified in English and ESOL, and currently teaches English II and English II Honors to ninth and tenth graders. Castro credits her decision to get into teaching to her senior English teacher. (My English teacher) was fantastic, Castro said. She inspired me to give back all the time she gave to me. Castro said she first decided to become a teacher in her senior year of college, when she volunteered at Gainesville High School. One of Castros many students, Joel HerreraRamirez, said: (Ms. Castro) makes everything easy. Shes really respectful. The Rookie Teacher of the Year recipient, Karen Noffsinger, is originally from Indiana. Noffsinger attended the University of North Carolina and majored in Economics. During college, Noffsinger also played volleyball and softball. Noffsinger is certified in Social Science grades 6-12, Middle Grade Science grades 5-9, Middle Grade Integrated Science grades 5-9, and Elementary Education. She is currently teaching World History and World History Honors. I had a calling in my heart to teach, she said. I wanted to make a difference. Cierra Thompson, a sophomore in Ms. Noffsingers class, said that she likes how Noffsinger allows her students to work in groups. Principal Michelle Lewis said this about the award winners: I am so proud to have Ms. Castro and Ms. Noffsinger representing Dunnellon High School. They are fine examples of the excellent teaching that occurs in classrooms throughout our school. I thank them for all they do each day. The DHS family wouldnt be the same without them.

Ms. Denise Prinz and Mrs. Helyn Hollenbeck escorted the 18 fourthgrade participants of the Tiger to Cub mentoring program to DHS where they meet their Tiger buddies. The Tiger buddies led the way to the gymnasium where the Tiger and Cub buddies watched the homecoming pageant together. The Cubs were so excited to visit the high school and experience this event with their own high school buddy. It was a huge success and created enthusiasm and positivity among all involved. We are having our United Way campaign this week. Each day has been a different fun activity for students to participate in for a dollar donation.

The video went on to the International Student Media Festival where it received an Excellence in Media Production K-3 Live Action. The students attending were: Andrew Zenonos, Hannah Devine, Ayden Leeds, Trace Nagele, Shylou Shields and Elliott Dillon. They all received a certificate and DMS video production students garner FAME Awards Dunnellon Middle School had four winning videos at this years FAME/Jim Harbin Student Film Festival, the statewide video competition. Awards were handed out Wednesday, Oct. 5, in Orlando. DMS won the comedy category with Wild Campus and the documentary category with Our Day of Drama. The video Believe was awarded second place in the Drama Category and the PSA When Im Gone took third place. Those present for the awards ceremony, from left, are: Roberto Webb, Kevin Brown, Tania Centiceros, Kelly Brown, Principal Jane Ashman, Krista Palazzo, Tiffany Jones and Diego Tentiente. Im really happy with the results, said DMS teacher Beth Wood, who overseas the video production program. Other districts are becoming very competitive and we dont have a lot of the technology that many of the other schools have. So the kids really have to work hard on their storytelling. Like I always tell them, Its not what you got, its what you do with what you got. Special to the Riverland News LAURA RILEY For the Riverland News Castro, Noffsinger picked for respective honors D o you love to read, but find yourself straining to read books with smaller-thancomfortable print? Would you rather enjoy audio books? The Dunnellon Public Library has a growing collection of books and resources to meet the special needs of its patrons. Looking for that classic or favorite book in large print? At your library, old favorites are represented, and so are the newest titles from the hottest authors. Recent additions include books by James Patterson, Heather Graham and Jeffrey Archer. Readers with limited vision will enjoy audio books from the librarys vast collection as a way of meeting their reading needs, as will anyone with a long commute. Think of audio for those hands busy, mind free times, such as working out at the gym, walking the dog or even doing the dishes. Youll get in some reading time while accomplishing another task. Special resources at the library, however, are not limited to the traditional print or recorded book editions. Last year, the Marion County Public Library System secured funding through a federal grant to provide computer equipment for the use of people with disabilities. This grant, aptly titled Windows to the World, allowed the purchase of technology that magnifies a computer screen up to 36 times. The accompanying OpenBook 8.0 software enhances scanning and reading. Another software, Jaws for Windows, converts text into synthesized speech. Try it out yourself, or pass the word to your friends and family members with special needs. Staff members at the library can also help blind individuals apply for Florida Division of Blind Services Bureau of Braille and Talking Book Library Services.

On Wednesday, they wore green or their 4-H shirts to spread the word at school and on Friday went on morning announcements to talk about 4-H! On Saturday, they spent the morning cleaning up around the barn area to finish our week of celebrating 4-H! Maggie Barde, fifth-grade student, had this to share with students at Dunnellon Elementary. I am here to tell and spread rumors about 4-H. First 4-H is about taking action and working with others to make things the best! 4-H has taught me about responsibility and how to control my actions. I love 4-H! I think 4-H week is a big deal! It informs others about 4-H. So join the Revolution of Responsibility! Michele Rush reports from the last PTO meeting.

Special to the Riverland News ASHMAN continued from page 10 STUDENTS continued from page 10 detailing the effects of different flower preservatives on fresh flowers. They then decided to conduct an experiment testing several different products on carnations. They tested several groups with the prepackaged floral food, sugar, fertilizer and tap water. Their research showed plain water held fresh floral for the longest period of time. Their project and presentation won first place, allowing them the chance to compete at the state level. And thats how Kouva entered the picture and a spot at nationals. Because a family event conflicted with the date of the national conference, Navetta couldnt attend. So Reed sought out Kouva to fill in and help tackle the next phase of the already started project. How could I say no? Kouva said. I cant deny an offer like that. Thats not to say the nerves arent churning. Im more nervous than anything, but Im really excited too, Kouva said. Just being there is going to an amazing experience. Recently, the pair just completed the second leg of the project in which they added a twist to the original aspect of the testing phase. Not only did they use the same combinations, they added bleach with the water in some of the vases; hoping the bleach would kill off any potential mold and prolong the flowers freshness. Thus far, theyve complied all of their information on a Death Scale, a chart packed with information about their project. During competition, theyll provide the statistics in their speech. Theyll be judged on the data they collected and their presentation. Knowing the competition is going to be tough, they understand placing in the top three and earning scholarship money will certainly be a challenge. Especially since the FFA comprises the entire United States. Theres going to be a lot of people there, Reed said. Its going to be crazy. Reason enough she plans on bringing her camera and camcorder. Youre going to hate me, Reed explained to Kouva. Im going to take pictures of everything and everywhere. The two, members of the Dunnellon High FFA Chapter now, plan to ask a lot of questions and obtain as much information as possible during the four-day competition. They certainly hope to return to the national convention in the next four years, but after that? Neither has plans to enter the teaching profession like Amanda Hayward, the Dunnellon Middle FFA sponsor. The 2001 Crystal River High School graduate, who was a member of FFA during her high school career, said attending the national convention was the No. 1 reason she wanted to become a teacher. As for Reed and Kouva, both want to become veterinarians. Both said they own several small animals. I would certainly support FFA in whatever community Im living in, she said. I remember when I got in it in sixth grade, I never spoke. Now, Im a social butterfly. And she and Kouva are about to spread their wings. JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsKayla Reed, left, and Taylor Kouva, now-freshmen at Dunnellon High School, will attend the FFA National con Oct. 18 to 22 in Indianapolis, Ind. FFA continued from page 1

12 Riverland News, Thursday, October 13, 2011 T he new Dunnellon High Homecoming Queen has royal lineage. Chelsea Dominey was crowned Dunnellon High School Homecoming Queen at halftime of the Friday, Oct.7, varsity game against Santa Fe. Dominey was born into royalty. By an amazing chance, Chelsea Dominey: her mother, Julie ThompsonDominey, class of 1981; and her grandmother, Lani SmithThompson, class of 1961, have all been Dunnellon High School Homecoming Queens. Despite her royal blood, Dominey did not expect to win. I had no idea, I thought Abby (Hatfield) would win, Chelsea said. I was in complete shock, I couldnt move. Even though the crowning of Dominey would have made the event a tradition, she never felt pressured. I wasnt worried until the night of (the half-time crowning), she explained. I didnt want to be the one to ruin it. The Queen was royally flushed when she was announced as winner; walking by, you could hear her trying to catch her breath and say, Im shaking, Im shaking! Look at my hands, they wont stop shaking! Even two days later it still got to her. I was in complete shock, I couldnt move, Chelsea said. This tradition is a complete accident though. The women tried not to let their nerves get to them at all. I went to the pageant, I was trying not to get too excited, but I was, said her mother, Julie, who was crowned Homecoming Queen in 1981. Then they said she won and I cried, and I dont know what happened after that. Julie Dominey was shocked at her crowning in also. When I got crowned I didnt think I would win either. I cried then too, she exclaimed. Chelsea Dominey was well prepared to win, despite not campaigning. I taught her the same thing my mother taught me: be nice to everybody, and kind and friendly, said Julie Dominey. Julie Dominey gave God the credit for it all. Its all about Christ, she added. When asked the secret to success, her grandmother, Thompson, said the same thing: You have to be friendly and be good to people, we love people and are very friendly, said Thompson, who started the royal bloodlines by being crowned queen at the 1961 Homecoming festivies. The secret to success may not be only being kind to people, all three women were active cheerleaders during their high school careers. Thompson was the Queen of her graduating class of 19 students at the old DHS school house. The ones that nobody thinks would win, could win, Thompson said. And we are just so proud of Chelsea. She is really great with people. She used to take mentally handicapped children skating back in Wisconsin. The Lord has really blessed us. The legacy of the SmithThompson-Dominey girls will definitely continue in this family of queens, even though they arent competitive, they really excel in high school. This will be my legacy, Thompson said.

O ne of the most visually pleasing wild plants in our area, the Beauty Berry, has been in bloom for several weeks now. In August, when the local Muscadine grapes are ready for harvest, the Beauty Berries are as well. The intense purple berry of the plant draws a huge following of wildlife, particularly squirrels, butterflies and birds. Watching nature, we soon find there is much to be learned about the array of edible plants in our area. From berries and seeds, to nuts and bark; in a survival mode or for pleasure, food is all around us. Recently, I have been reading whatever I can find on the stunning Beauty Berry (Callicarpa Americana) plant. With plenty of information from numerous sources, I embarked on a Beauty Berry jelly experiment of my own. The results were not only pleasing to look at and a new taste sensation, but a new variety of jelly to add to the cupboard already full of recently made wild blackberry jam. My first discovery, on the morning of the harvest, was that some plants had already gone to seed. That was a disappointment for me, but I knew from my reading that the birds and squirrels would enjoy the dried fruits in the upcoming winter. Fortunately, the Beauty Berry bushes on my local ranch are numerous. They seem to just pop up everywhere to my delight. So I chose another plant and decided the best way to handle the harvest was with a small pair of loppers. I removed enough branches laden with berries to fill a large tub and then hauled them to the porch to remove leaves and twigs. Cleaning off the berries was quite time-consuming and I was already thinking there had to be a better way. But, I continued removing leaves, twigs and then rubbing my hands across the berries so they would fall into a bowl. For the recipe I was using, I needed a quart and a half of berries. If you are familiar with the Beauty Berry, you know that the individual berries are very, very small. Thankfully, they grow in nice, neat clusters. Once the berries were free of their greenery, I brought them to the kitchen to wash as well as inspect for remaining leaves or a possible beetle. After a nice rinse, I measured the quart and a half of berries and poured them into a large stainless steel pot, adding two quarts of water. The water was brought to a boil and allowed to boil for about 20 minutes to create the infusion (liquid extract, as in tea.) As it boiled, I was a bit sad to see the powerful purple color slowly disappear and the concoction take on a gold color with light green foam rising to the top. The liquid remained a dark color when strained. I placed three cups of the infusion into another cooking pot and added one package of Sure jell and 4 1/2 cups of sugar. I had also read that many people add fresh lemon juice at this point, so I did as well, squeezing and adding 1/3 cup of lemon juice to the liquid. This mixture is then brought to a boil for two minutes and here the foam rises rapidly. The pot must be carefully watched and stirred constantly to dissolve the sugar and Sure jell. After skimming off the newly formed foam, I poured the hot liquid, which now had turned a beautiful rosy color, into my sterilized jelly jars, capped the jars and set the jars into the cooker for 10 minutes of steam pressurization and sealing. After pressurizing, I removed the jars from the container and set them on the counter and waited for each lid to pop verifying to me that the jars had sealed properly. As directed, I left them to sit and jell for the next 24 hours. When complete, the little jars of jelly looked beautiful. The jelly is rose-colored and almost translucent. The taste is quite different from what I expected. I had sampled a few of the berries while they were still on the stem and I found them rather meaty and bland. I could eat them if I had too, but off the bush Id just as soon leave them for the birds and squirrels. It is the sugar, Sure jell and lemon that turn the earthy berries into a sweet jelly. According to authors and writers of edible plants, Beauty Berry was a popular plant with Native Indians. The entire plant was used as food and for medicinal purposes. A tea made from the roots was used to treat dysentery and stomach aches, a decoction of the root bark as a diuretic and the leaves for dropsy. Another tea made from the roots and berries was used to treat colic and the leaves and roots were used in sweat lodges for the treatment of malaria, rheumatism and fevers. The leaves have also been found to contain certain chemicals that repel mosquitoes, fire ants and ticks. Farmers would place a leafy branch of Beauty Berry, with the leaves in tact, in the harness on their mule or horse. They found that the plant was effective in keeping pests at bay especially from around their animals eyes. I have tried rubbing the leaves on my skin and I can vouch for the fact that it does indeed repel insects. When trying anything new in the wild plant arena, it is always best to do plenty of research. There are poisonous plants in the wild that are deadly if eaten, so one must be extremely diligent in understanding the plant you would like to consider consuming. Finding a plant that is beautiful and a food source is a wonderful discovery! Make sure the plants you collect are not along roadsides where toxins such as pollutants and pesticides are plentiful and always make sure you leave more of the plant than you take. The library offers books on edible wild plants and more information than you would need can be located on a computer search. Two highly recommended books are Floridas Incredible Edibles by Dick Deureling and Peggy Lantz and Field Guide to Wild Edible Plants by Bradford Angier. Discover for yourself the joys of the edible wild plants around you. Many local edibles can be viewed at Rainbow Springs State Park, keeping in mind that everything in the state park is protected and not available to be picked or harvested. However, for the purpose of familiarizing yourself with the plants, taking photos and speaking to knowledgeable staff and volunteers about our local plants, a walk around the park would be productive. You will be amazed at the numerous plants that grow wild in our area and are fit for consumption.

Coming out for the first time are Natalie Cote, Charles Cross, Daniel Pastore and Dillon Lamb. The year will be very interesting on seeing who shines the brightest and who has the biggest improvements, coaches Valerie Bazarte and Tracy Young explained. Both were not sure how things would go this season, but Dunnellons meet Sept. 27 at Belleview left them surprised with the level of new talent they have. On Sept. 27, at Belleview, Victor was the victor. That is, Victor Chicas, a name that is easily recognized when it comes to cross country. Chicas, a junior, has been turning in successful performances since his freshman season. Belleview was no different for him, as he finished with a time of 17:31, besting his nearest competitor by more than 30 seconds. It felt good to win and Im closer to reaching my goal now, he said. Since the Mountain Dew Invitational on Sept. 25, Chicas said he was not pleased with his performance, where he finished with a time of 17:43. Ive been busting my butt because I was upset at how I did, he explained. Daniel Pastore also had a great run with a time of 23:40 at Belleview. Bazarte spoke highly of him after the Belleview Invitational. Hes only been with us for a little over a week, she explained. But hes still putting forth great effort. For the Lady Tigers, Courtney Pike finished 13th at Belleview with a time of 26:39. On Oct. 4, the Buffalo Invitational at The Villages High School, featured more 25 schools. At this meet, Chicas bested his Belleview time by a few seconds, but placed second behind Citrus High Schools Tim Wenger High. The team did not receive a score because only four runners participated. They are doing great, improving time, Chicas said of the team. But we need to work harder and need to work on teamwork, but besides that we are doing great. Dunnellons cross country team will compete today at Crystal River High School. Dunnellons Victor Chicas has performed well in the past two meets, winning the Belleview Invitational by more than 30 seconds over his closest competitor, and finishing second at the Buffalo Invitational at The Villages High School. That event had more than 25 teams competing. JOE DUNAWAY/For the Riverland News Tigers JV football hooks Sharks, 22-7 DHS posts third victory of year BROOKSVILLE The Dunnellon High School junior varsity football team swam past the Nature Coast Sharks on Wednesday, Oct. 5, posting a 22-7 victory, its third win of the season. The first half was a little rough, Dunnellon coach Archie Smith said. But when the second half came around, we pulled it together and played the game we know. The Tigers Brandon Smith took the opening kickoff to the 46-yard line. But Dunnellon struggled moving the ball in the first quarter; however, the Sharks found it tough going against the Dunnellon defense. At the start of the second quarter, the Tigers defense hit hard. Kyle McMann dislocated his pinky finger while bringing somebody down. I looked down and saw my pinky pointed back at me and thought it was pretty cool, he said. All that was going through my head was, I need to pull it back and return to the game. Soon after, Nature Coast pitched the ball and its ball carrier ran it up the middle, taking a bite out of the Tigers for the first score of the game, giving the Sharks a 7-0 lead. With 3:48 left in the first half, Dunnellon was on the prowl for revenge. The Tigers came close, but failed to cut its deficit. The Tigers trailed 7-0 at the half. As the second half got under way, Devin Simms kicked the ball off as McMann returned to the game ready to rumble. In a battle in the trenches between the teams, the Tigers fought hard to get the ball to goal line. Dunnellons defense stopped the Sharks, giving the offense the opportunity to strike. And the Tigers did just that. Quarterback Tyler Powell ran up the middle, scoring a touchdown for the Tigers, as Devin Smith converted the 2-point attempt, giving Dunnellon an 8-7 lead. The Tigers defense pinned the Sharks offense down, reeling them in from scoring a touchdown. Then it was the Tigers turn to try and score. With the Tigers running in full force, Powell handed the ball off to Devin Smith, who scored Dunnellons second touchdown as well as adding the 2-point conversion for a 16-7 lead. Once again with the ball, Nature Coast was stymied by the Tigers defense. Dunnellons Deion Humbert recovered a fumble and returned it for the Tigers final score with 5:44 remaining in the game. The Sharks got one last chance to trim their 22-7 deficit, but Dunnellons defense withstood the final attack. I am always looking for players who can step it up and play different positions and today I saw potential in many of them, coach Archie Smith said, discussing todays game against Trinity Catholic with his squad. Trinity, our next opponent, has some of the best guys in Marion County. We need to have intensity on both our offense and defense. It is going to be a tough game. Kick off is at 7 p.m. today at Ned Love Field as the Tigers host Trinity Catholic. Peak performers Prior to the start of the season, first-year coach Roger Sibbald wasnt sure what to expect from his team. His goals were for his team to improve throughout the season and peak at the right time. So far, that appears to the case, especially with Ryan Molloy and Bryce Thalacker leading the charge for the Tigers as of late. Molloy had perhaps his best two outings of the season two weeks ago against Forest, West Port and St. John. The junior fired a pair of back-to-back 4over-par 40s in the two meets, winning medalist honors at both matches. Thalacker, a sophomore, hasnt been too shabby either, finishing with a 41 against Forest and West Port as well as carding a 47 against St. John a couple of weeks ago. I am very proud of the way the golf team has responded this year, said Sibbald, who noted Mondays County Championship at Ocala Municipal was rained out with a possible nine-hole tournament rescheduled for today. Ryan and Bryce were my two most consistent golfers on the year. Their performances as of late certainly could make the pair spoilers at the District 1A8 Golf Championships when the field tees off at 10 a.m. Monday at Southern Woods Golf and Country Club in Homosassa. The top four teams in the field advance to the Regional 1A-3 Championships the following week; however, the top seven individual golfers not on a team advancing to the regional championship also earn a spot. Both Molloy and Thalacker are certainly up for the challenge. I feel that Im going to do my best and I will move into the next round, Molloy said. Thalacker believes hes AMANDA BARNEY For the Riverland News Thomas Reilly Boys Swimming As a freshmen swimmer, Reilly has shown great improvement throughout the year. He is always working hard at practice to get better. He has improved his times almost every time he is in the pool, Dunnellon coach Bruce Wentz said.

Santa Fe raids Tiger Stadium For the past two seasons, the Dunnellon High School football team had run the gamut against its respective slate of opponents. That wont be the case this season as Santa Fe, bolstered by a relentless defense, upended Dunnellon, 21-7, Friday night at Ned Love Field. And the Tigers, losers of two straight games, were their own worst enemy, specifically in the fourth quarter where Dunnellon has seemed to be at its best the past two seasons. The Tigers (3-3 overall, 1-1 District 5A-5) turned the ball over three times, five for the game, as they couldnt solve the Raiders relentless blitz, despite outgaining them 214-64. Thats not what we do, thats now what were about, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said about his teams turnovers. You cant do that against a 5-0 team and expect to win. It was pretty abysmal. Weve had problems with it all year. Everybody works on it. We all coach it. Santa Fe returned two turnovers for touchdowns, both by defensive back Chris Jackson. The junior defensive back returned a fumble 23 yards on the Tigers second play of the game in the opening period and sealed the Tigers fate with a 30yard interception return in the fourth quarter. That certainly set the tone for the game, Beasley said about Jacksons fumble return in the opening quarter. We were playing behind the eight-ball after that happened. The junior defensive back also recovered a fumble in the fourth quarter for the Raiders, who snapped Dunnellons 15-game district winning streak dating to the 2008 season. With one loss now in the district, Beasley admitted it will be tough for his team in the coming weeks if the Tigers hope to make the playoffs again. Dunnellon has three district games remaining, against Belleview, Crystal River and North Marion. It certainly puts us in a tough spot, Beasley said. Well probably need some help from somebody. The Tigers certainly had their chances especially in the fourth quarter thanks in large part to their defense, which kept Santa Fe in throughout the game. The Raiders lone offensive touchdown came on a two-play, 1-yard drive that was set up by Brandon Willis 66-yard punt return to start the second quarter. After Dunnellon defensive back Mohammed Refaei made a spectacular over-the-shoulder interception of errant throw by Raiders signal-caller Tim Deen in the closing minutes of the third period, the Tigers offense seemed to get the spark it needed. Facing a crucial fourth-and-goal from the 9-yard line, Dunnellons Wesley Beasley hauled in a 9-yard reception from quarterback Jordon Boley. Beasleys extra point cut the Raiders lead in half, 14-7, with 11:01 remaining in the contest. On Santa Fes ensuing possession, Dunnellon forced the Raiders to punt from their 26-yard line. A bad snap forced Santa Fe to punt from its own goal line and set the Tigers next drive at the Raiders 40yard line. However, two plays later as Dunnellon was driving, they committed the first of its three fourth-quarter turnovers. The Tigers again forced another turnover, as Refaei intercepted his second pass of the game, giving Dunnellons offense possession of the ball at the 50-yard line. Four plays later, the Tigers again fumbled and caught a break when Jacksons 65-yard fumble return for a touchdown was negated by a penalty. Dunnellons defense held the Raiders in check, forcing a punt on a fourth-and-13, giving the Tigers offense the ball at their own 19yard line. But two players later, Jackson picked off another errant pass, scampering 30 yards for the score. Dunnellon has a bye this Friday. The Tigers return to action at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, at Belleview. Were going to have to chew on this for the next couple of weeks, Beasley said about the loss. Well get after the next couple of weeks and come back strong. DREW RONDEAU/For the Riverland NewsDunnellon running back JVon Swoll looks for a hole to get through as Santa Fe defenders close in while quarterback Jordon Boley watches the play. Turnovers doom Dunnellon in 21-7 district loss to Raiders JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Volleyball has rough week The Lady Tigers had a very good week, with another three games; they put up a fight, showing improvement. Starting off Homecoming Week, the seats were filled with fans to show their support on Monday, Oct. 3, when Dunnellon hosted Crystal River. Losing all three games, 25-12, 25-16 and 25-18, the girls never gave up. They worked hard all three games and had some exciting moments, making the fans proud. On Tuesday, Oct. 4, the Lady Tigers played Tavares at home and went to four games. Starting off slowly, with a score of 2526 the first game, but ending with a loss. The second game, they came together and got pumped up and ended with a closer score of 25-22. The third game was the turning point of the Lady Tigers, as they won, 26-24, forcing a fourth set. However, the last game the girls tried something new, but it didnt work in a 25-7 loss. On Wednesday, Oct. 5, Dunnellon traveled to Lake Weir, and walked into the junior varsity winning, as the JV Lady Tigers had an exciting match going into three games, the first game the score was 25-17 with a victory for the Tigers. The second game they lost 2510, and the third game the JV Lady Tigers came together with a win of 15-9. The varsity Lady Tigers had close games of 25-23, 25-21, and 25-15, but lost against Lake Weir. Dunnellon played Tuesday night at North Marion. Results were not available at press time. The Lady Tigers close the regular season Friday, Oct. 21, at West Port. ready to compete against some of the best competition in the district. I feel like Ill do well, because Im prepared, he added. Sibbald points to the schedule as a benefit for his team. Despite only facing two district teams this season, Crystal River, the defending district champion, and Seven Rivers, the Tigers competed against the likes of Forest, Vanguard, Trinity Catholic and others throughout the season. We have played some great local competition and look forward to the challenge of facing our district competition, Sibbald said. With our district being south, we chose to schedule local and incounty schools due to time restraints. No matter how Monday goes, Sibbald points to a bright future in the Dunnellon golf program. All the boys are back next year, he exclaimed. Seniors Chelsea Dominey and Madeline Tourne will represent the golf team at the Girls District 1A-8 field at Abby Course at St. Leos University, near Dade City. Chelsea was a surprise this year, splitting time between golf and cheerleading, Sibbald said. She has a great swing and competed against the boys all year.

I was sitting in a restaurant on a Friday afternoon enjoying a leisurely repast with some friends. Somewhere in the middle of our conversation, my cell phone went off. Without even thinking about it, I reached into my shirt pocket, pulled it out and answered it. It was then I was struck with an awful thought. I am now a child of this contemporary technological world. I never thought I would succumb to this sort of thing. But here I am; Im not the man I used to be, and Im not even sure Im the man I want to be. On my way home, I thought about how far I have come in this modern world. Then, for some reason I thought of my old grandfather. He died in 1974 and every once in a while I think about him. This was one of those times. What came to my mind this particular time was when my grandmother got a new contraption for their home. Grandfather was not enthused about some of these modern advances. My grandfather allowed grandmother to get electricity in the house, but when it came to indoor plumbing he was dead set against it. He had used the old outhouse in the back as far as he could remember. His father had used it before him. As far as grandfather was concerned, he was going to use that outhouse until he died. He did not need any of this newfangled indoor plumbing. And that was that. My grandmother said to him at the time, Pap, is that your last word on the subject? It sure is, my grandfather responded. Grandmother looked at him and said, Great, the plumber is coming tomorrow and I wont have to put up with any more of your guff. The next morning, right on grandmothers schedule, the plumber came and fitted the house with indoor plumbing. Just to be spiteful, my grandfather never used the indoor plumbing. He showed grandmother that he was boss in some certain regard, and used the outhouse for the rest of his life. Then the time came when the telephone line went down the valley where grandmother and grandfather lived. Knowing the hard time grandfather gave her with the indoor plumbing, she decided not to tell him about the installation of the telephone. She knew he would disapprove, so why ask. Grandfather came home that night, as usual, and sat down to a very nice supper. So far, he had not noticed the addition in the living room. Grandmother, the diplomat that she was, did not bother to point it out to him. Grandfather, as was his custom, settled down to read the evening newspaper in the living room completely unaware of the change that had come to this sanctuary of his. Grandmother was in the kitchen busy cleaning off the table, washing the dishes and getting her kitchen back into shape before retiring to the living room for an evening of relaxation. Suddenly, a ringing noise exploded in the living room. Grandfather, not knowing what had happened, jumped out of his chair and exited the living room faster than he had ever done so before. In the kitchen, grandmother had been so busy with her work she forgot about this new contraption. She too was scared. The ringing continued without stopping. Grandfather was beside himself and considered getting his shotgun not knowing who or what had invaded his living room. Then it dawned on grandmother. Oh, she said with a sigh of relief. Thats the telephone ringing. The what? Telephone. Whos Phone, and what in the world do you want to tell him? No, grandmother said and ran into the living room to answer the phone. Its the telephone ringing. By this time, she had got to the telephone and had answered it. My grandfather stared at her as she talked into the telephone receiver. Woman, he said with a great deal of alarm, what in the world is wrong with you? Grandmother ignored him and continued talking on the telephone. Now grandfather was worried. Watching his wife talk to someone who was not there and even at times laughing when there wasnt anything funny, caused him alarm. Finally, out of sheer desperation, he went over, took the contraption out of her hand and taking her by the arm and, Now, dear. Theres nothing to worry about. Just come over and sit down here in your chair and everything will be all right. But Im talking to I know, I know. But you see, dear, theres nobody there. Youre just having one of your spells. Grandfather never came to terms with grandmothers newfangled contraption. To my knowledge, he never used it, never spoke to anybody on it, never listened to anybody talking to him on it. As far as he was concerned, it was one of grandmothers hallucinations. It has been a long time since I thought about grandmothers telephone. On my way home from my luncheon meeting I thought about all the inventions that have come into our world. I thought of what the Bible said, Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions (Ecclesiastes 7:29 KJV). We seem to be quick on our inventions, but rather slow on connecting with God. With all our inventions, are we any better off? Instead of seeking inventions, we would be better served in seeking God.

City offers to help; pitches its fiber program as assetOCALA Despite hurt feelings from the Dunnellon City Council, Mondays special joint meeting between the City Council and Marion County Commission appeared jovial and productive. The hurt feelings are a result for the countys plans to construct a Drainage Retention Area (DRA) on East Pennsylvania Avenue, west of the Rainbow River. City officials contend they were never informed of the project; however, county officials said plans for the project were given to city staff months ago. 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. Mayor Fred Ward pointed out how that is three parcels within the city limits as well as on the Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) now off the tax rolls. However, the three parcels of property were zoned strictly as residential and were undeveloped. But Monday, both sides had buried the hatchet and agreed to move. I hope we were able to happily resolve the DRA issue, Commissioner Kathy Bryant said. We hope you are all happy with the results. Ward pointed out the obvious. It was a communication issue, he said. Still, City Councilwoman Lynne McAndrew, midway through the meeting, asked if there were any other plans city officials should know about. Well, were going to annex the city, joked one official. And were going to move SERVINGDUNNELLONANDRAINBOWSPRINGS Thursday, October 13, 2011 Vol 29 No. 52 75 cents VISIT US:www.riverlandnews.comCALL US: 489-2731E-MAIL: editor@riverlandnews.com WHATS HAPPENING Food 4 Kids Inc. to host food drive SaturdayFood 4 Kids Inc. will host a food drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, at Walmart.

Korea The much-need fiber to launch Greenlight Dunnellon Communications Inc. is on its way. Eddie Esch, the citys director of public services and utilities, informed the City Council at its Oct. 5 workshop that the shipment of 132 miles of fiber was set to leave a South Korean port last week and should arrive in Dunnellon by the last week of October or the first week of November at the latest. Once the fiber is here, crews can begin installing it along power poles where needed or run through the underground conduit already put in place by Hewitt Company. Currently, the eight-mile stretch from the city limits to the Level 3 station where Greenlight has to connect to the Cloud has already been completed.

Im super-excited, Reed said. Its all Ive been able to talk about. I remember when I joined in sixth grade and that was the thing everyone talked about, was qualifying for nationals. To compete, the students first had to make their way through the Florida State FFA Convention in which Reed and Marc Navetta, her original partner in the project, competed in the Agriscience Fair.

To be more precise, there are nine new deputies, all set to patrol throughout Dunnellon and the outlying areas if needed. Thats because this past Thursday, Marion County Sheriff Ed Dean officially deputized the officers with the Dunnellon Police Department. Currently, the lone other municipality thats been deputized are officers from the Ocala Police Department. With the city and county sharing in an interlocal agreement, this will allow officers with Dunnellon to respond to emergencies on an as needed basis. In addition to that, it will allow law enforcement officials to serve warrants if needed, pursue suspects without calling for assistance from the sheriffs department if it is not needed and other official capacities. Im proud to call you friends and partners, Sheriff Ed Dean told the members of the Dunnellon Police Department. We appreciate all that you already do for us; we really do. I dont have to do this, but I want to do this. Sheriff Dean explained he could have simply mailed the forms to sign to the department, had the paperwork returned, file it and move on with each agencys business of keeping the streets safe. I would miss the opportunity to challenge each of you, he said, asking for Chief Joanne Blacks blessing to do so. We must remember who our customer is. The customer, Sheriff Dean explained, is the taxpayer. Weve always tried to emphasize that here, he said. We really focus on who the customer is; its the folks who pay the bill around here. The bad guys arent the customers; sure they have their rights, but they go to jail. No apologies, but theyre going to jail. Youre not a customer. However, its the customer who deserves service, dignity, respect and courtesy, he said. Be very, very patient, he stressed. When youre on a call, its important to distinguish if its a customer or a bad guy. If its a customer, they want service, dignity, respect and courtesy. We all do. Remember who we are talking to. If we ignore who we are talking to, theyre going to tell their friends. If we dont have what I call the twin pillars respect and trust theyre just going to remember how badly they were treated. Sheriff Dean said if the customers are given those four things; it will pay off when needed most. You may need their help someday, he explained. You may need them to help step in and protect you; people will know and remember how theyve been treated when they go home. Black noted how much the relationship between the two agencies has grown and improved since taking over as the chief. We just really appreciate the opportunity to be a part of this, Black said. City Manager Lisa Algiere praised the moment. It reflects well on our police department, Algiere said during the ceremony. We are just so very proud of them. the Rainbow River, one bottle at a time, joked another. The responses drew laughter from most in the room. Despite the off-color humor, officials on both sides agreed the meeting was long overdue and plan to schedule a joint meeting on a quarterly basis. But those in attendance were quick to discuss the business at hand. The first, and most discussed issue, are economic development opportunities at the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport. Commissioners informed the City Council and other officials a public workshop has been scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday, Nov. 29, to discuss the airports master plan and perhaps upgrade it. County commissioners invited the City Council to be a part of the process. But they were pointed in asking what ideas the City Council had to help address the issue of bringing in economic opportunities to the area to create jobs. What do you have that you could put on the table today? County Commission Chairman Stan McLain asked. Though city officials didnt have specific ideas; they pointed to the citys Fiber to the Home program. The city is hopeful to have it up and running by mid-December. We can go to the airport with fiber, Ward said. Perhaps that makes it a little more viable by attracting companies that need that service. County officials said they would instruct staff to research the opportunities that the fiber program could lend to attracting companies to the area. That could certainly be a part of the discussion, McLain said. Where does it best fit in? Officials stressed its important to attract businesses that would benefit from the airports location while the airport could benefit from new businesses coming into the area. Were looking for high-paying professional jobs, Ward said. I dont know what niche that should be, but an industry that would benefit from broadband. Hightech jobs that have support jobs that go with it. Vice Mayor F.C. Fred Stark views the airport as a golden opportunity. Its got so much going for it, he added. Ward said the city would certainly like to avail itself of the county in any way it can to attract companies to the area. City Manager Lisa Algiere said any county official who would like to tour Greenlight Dunnellon Communications is welcome to do so. We need a vision in which we set strategic goals, he said. And we need those goals to be specific to at least narrow the focus of what we want to accomplish. The City Council as well as county officials praised the work of John Helms, the airports manager for the past two years. I hear (Mr. Helms) is doing a really, really good job, that he has a very high level of interest in the airport and its success, McAndrew said. McLain echoed that sentiment. Mr. Helms is an asset to our staff, he said. Hes trying to bring the airport forward.

River views Now is the time to plant annuals such as pansies and petunias, while Snapdragons will add some autumn color. Fertilize sparingly or better still use organic as you plant to ensure good growth. Perennials can also be planted. Elephant ears, crinum daylily, and gladiolus will settle and establish for the spring. Watering should be one to two times a week and no more hard pruning. Plants need to settle back for the winter, and any top growth will help protect crowns from any sneaky frosts. Taking old flowers off will encourage new flowers, and now is the time to lift and divide many perennials for bulking up on stock. If you plan to try daffodils, tulips or hyacinth bulbs put them in the fridge for 60 days at 40 degrees, or 120 days at 50 degrees. I personally have never been successful, or seen these grow, but if you can, let us know your experiences. Mistletoe can soon be harvested for winter decoration. This is a parasite and if not cut off will kill the host tree, so its worth the cutting. Banana, avocado and guava should be fertilized now that October has arrived. Sweet potatoes can begin to be dug as needed. Plant cabbage, cauliflower and brussel sprouts. These vegetables need the cold to produce good crops. Carrots, beets, turnips, onions and radishes thrive well as the air and soil cool. Broccoli planted in late October should be ready to harvest in 90-plus days. Plant two weeks earlier and you should harvest at 60 days from planting. Cauliflower should be planted in the next two weeks to ensure maturity before the frosts, as it is slightly tender. Dig starter holes twice the size of the container, put 50/50 manure soil back in the bottom, add organic fertilizer, plant and back fill the hole with the mix. Greens, cabbage and Brussels need to be 18 inches apart with rows approximately 30 inches apart for easy care and harvesting. Leaf Lettuce will produce a good crop planted now, along with arugula and spinach. Beet growing can be productive. In the UK, I would scatter 8 to 12 seeds in an area 12 inches in diameter, repeat this. Leave the seedlings Oh, the things my boy says Big shoes to fill Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Audrey Beem and Ill be joining you in your living room every Thursday if youll let me. Many of you already know me, being a Dunnellon girl for the past 30-plus years. But for those of you who dont, Ill fill in a few blanks. I was born Audrey Pugliese in Paterson, N.J., but soon moved to Dunnellon where Ive lived ever since. I married young, divorced young and bore two beautiful daughters, Amanda and Alicia, who are now my best friends. Along the way, I met the man of my dreams, Russell, whom Ive now been married to for almost 20 years. We live in Rainbow Springs Woodlands with our tiny Maltese, Roxy. Im lucky enough to still have both my parents around. I have two wonderful brothers and both of my daughters have given me a grandchild. So, my cup runneth over when it comes to family. We are always busy on the weekends, all together, laughing and having fun. Oh, and tons of food too. Im Italian, so everything includes food. Side note: Youll be hearing much more about the grandchildren in the weeks to follow. Although I might have to change the name of my 12-year-old granddaughter, so her friends will still think shes cool. Besides the family, my main passion is writing and that includes a little bit of everything; poetry, letters and greeting cards. I even take online writing courses and I completed a novel. But dont run out to the neighborhood bookstore just yet, because sad to say it didnt get published. But it did give me the experience and knowledge that I needed to attempt novel No. 2, which Ive only just begun but who knows. The thing about writing though is it really doesnt matter if it gets published or how many people read it. All that matters is that youre allowed to write. Its getting your feelings and emotions down on paper and allowing the thoughts to flow out at a rapid pace. As Im watching and living life, Im always thinking about what a great story this moment would make and I guess thats part of being a writer. I play out scenarios in my head all the time. It makes for an interesting day. So now I have some really big shoes to fill. Kathleen Wallace was funny and entertaining and Im sad to see her go. Sometimes when my Riverland News would arrive her article would be the first one Id read. She had a fan and never knew it. Sometimes I would agree with her and sometimes I wouldnt, but she always made me laugh. And now Im going to attempt to take over and hopefully be just as endearing. Dont worry, my family tree is equally filled with eccentric, odd characters who will give me plenty of fodder to write about. In that department, I dont think youll be disappointed. Im always open for comments and suggestions. I dont take criticism well. Im an eternal optimist, which might annoy some people and youll read about my family often. Please feel free to react, respond and even offer suggestions on subjects you would like to hear about. So sit back and let me entertain you. I hope youll be pleased.

Though we did not make our major goals, we did make some. I would like to thank the following Dunnellon businesses for their marvelous support. In all, we had 48 to 50 tickets donated back to us, which were in turn divided up between Pastor Kevins TriCounty Pregnancy and Support Center, Annie W. Johnson Senior Center and the Mission in Citrus Inc. Veterans Homeless Shelters. I cannot thank you all enough for your generous support. All those wonderful people who purchased tickets and those businesses that helped and donated their tickets back to the community. Wed also like to thank the Greater Dunnellon Historical Society for the use of the Depot, Central Florida Armory, Woods Barber Shop, Capt. Bobs Bait and Tackle, Debbie from the Dunnellon Post Office, Butler Multi Services, Dunnellon Tractor Supply, Seventh Inning Stretch, Upper Deck Barber Shop, Scalleys Lube, The Insurance Company, Olsen Insurance, Superior Bank, Pets Plus, Go for Doughnuts, Barehuggers John Deere, Riverside Pawn, Garys Carpet, Chief Joanne Black from the Dunnellon Police Department, Dunnellon Fire Rescue, Dunnellon Plumbing, Indian Joes, Ace Hardware, Penn Station Deli and Grill, Don Pepes Mexican Restaurant and Sherwin Williams. If I have forgotten anyone, it is with my sincerest apologies. You are all awesome. My wife, Debra, and I are proud to be a small part of Dunnellons huge heart. We are proud to live in Dunnellon, a community that pulls together to support one another. A part of old America not seen anymore, but can still be found in Dunnellon. Again thank you and God bless you all.Pastor E. Patrick Anthony Cross At The River Cowboy ChurchRainbows End Golf Course hosts great eventsNeither high wind, rain or darkness could put a halt to the fun we had at Rainbows End Golf Course this past Saturday. The Stirrups N Strides Therapeutic Riding Center benefit was great fun again this year, and the night golf outing was a real challenge due to the rain and lack of moonlight, but we had a wonderful time. Thank you to Don and Linda DeLaney and your crew for a delightful day. The lunch and supper were top shelf also.Dave Farrell DunnellonCity officials seem to have disdain for public, interactionWhat has happened to City Council civility? On Sept. 26, the county storm water engineer appeared before the Dunnellon City Council to explain plans for a storm water retention pond along Pennsylvania Avenue. The Council promptly criticized the plan and claimed that the county devised plans without communicating with the city. The truth of the matter is that the retention project was origiIcannot recall the number of times Ive heard the phrase, out of the mouth of babes. I personally believe it resonates much more since Ive become a father. I see a lot of me in my children, both good and bad; though I prefer to focus on the good, because theyll grow out of the bad. Honestly, it would be a blast to let my children write a column about the observances of two bright-eyed children and the view of the world from their perspective. But their inability to express themselves clearly might come off sounding like the occasional City Council meeting and if you have ever been to one, you certainly know what Im referring to. However, that is certainly a topic we could tackle for a lengthy period of time. Back to my original point. I got that dreaded phone call the other day from Mom. Do you know what your son did today? No, I honestly dont, I replied, quickly adding. But I thought he was our son. Silence. Apparently my point was not funny. He does bad and hes my offspring. He does brilliantly and mom takes the credit. Similar to the tree falling in the forest and if a man is nearby its likely his fault. He bit a girl, the wife said. Oh and why did he do that? I asked rhetorically. Because she was standing too close to him, I was told. So she was crowding his space and cramping his style? I responded. Again, silence. I am pretty sure I heard a pin drop despite the excited chatter of two toddlers coming from the backseat. Upon arriving home later that evening and talking to him about his day, we broached the subject of biting people, especially girls. We dont bite people Jackson, especially girls, I sternly explained. Why? he asked. Well thats because its not nice and one day you might want to kiss her and shes going to remember you bit her, I explained. Not missing a beat, Jackson responded quickly: Why would I want to kiss her daddy if I cant bite her? Now I could tell you he gets the sarcasm from his mothers side of the family, but Id be lying. Plus, those of you who know me well enough are shaking your head, saying hes just like his father. Still, it doesnt end there. He was playing on his swing set recently, asking me to push him on the swing. Daddy, push me to the moon, higher, he said excitedly. So I got him as high as he could go. He giggled and squealed. Thats my man, he told me. On a recent trek into Dunnellon on a Sunday morning with the boys in tow, we stopped for breakfast. Of course, Daddy bumped into 20 people Ive met through my time here at the Riverland News.

nally identified in a 2005 Jones, Edmunds & Associates Dunnellon Watershed Management Plan cooperatively funded by Dunnellon, the County and SWFWMD and that the county engineer had been communicating with the Dunnellon utilities manager and community development director. I dont think it is the fault of the county that city staff does not communicate effectively with the Council and that the Council does not know their own history. This incident is not unusual because the City Council does not do well in accepting public input, in fact all too often, seems to resent it and is prone to ignore or berate those who offer such input. This can result in poor decisions. A good example is the contrived capitulation to the Rainbow River Ranch developer, which promises to be costly to the river as well as to the pocketbooks of the citizens. Another example is the poorly written River Etiquette Ordinance, which contains misspellings, poorly constructed sentences and at least one physically impossible requirement. I twice submitted the same detailed comments about the ordinance by email to the Council members, but they ignored my input during their deliberations. The city officials, particularly the mayor and city manager, need to participate in meetings, workshops, seminars and public events in the region. On Sept. 10, an excellent 9/11 memorial ceremony was held at the Dunnellon American Legion. No Dunnellon government representatives were present. On Sept. 21, SWFWMD and the Florida Springs Institute sponsored a Springs Challenge at the Rainbow Rivers Club, which was very informative pertaining to our concerns for water resources. Again, no Dunnellon government representatives were present. On Sept. 27, the Marion County Legislative Delegation held their annual meeting in Ocala seeking input from a wide crosssection of agencies and organizations. The County Commission chairman spoke, the Ocala mayor spoke and the Belleview mayor spoke. Again, no Dunnellon government representatives were present. I am not the first person to write about this problem in the City of Dunnellon. Others who have appeared before the City Council have been dismayed by the lack of civility, particularly from the mayor. You cant learn and you cant do right without listening.

great regional talent. We didnt really change the way we booked bands, but we wanted to give everyone in the community a reason to come out. We have the Jazz for Jazz lovers; we have the rock n roll and we have a bit of country. Theres something there for everyone. Because of such a massive outpouring of feedback about the event a year ago, organizers are expanding the event, not only with music, food and frothy beverages, but with familyrelated events as well as a Poker Crawl, a combination of Poker Run and Pub Crawl. The Poker Crawl will start at noon at Gruffs Tap & Grille and conclude at 4 p.m. at Local Legends. The event, which benefits the Boys & Girls Club of Dunnellon, is $5 per hand. A completed Score Card must be returned to Local Legends, where prize winners will be announced at 5 p.m. Were really excited about the Poker Crawl and doing something to include other businesses, Vaughn said. Last years Kids Zone was so popular, the time frame has been expanded, Vaughn said. And there will be more for the children to prior to the main event. The Kids Zone will once again be at Ernie Mills Park along Bostick Street. Pop Warner Football will host the concession stand, while Jackie Stevios Phantastic Sounds will perform on stage. Her singers will perform music such as Broadway, todays hits, oldies, country and patriotic. A petting zoo will also be available. The main event of Jazz Up Dunnellon kicks off at 5 p.m. and concludes at 10 p.m., as bands and vendors will be posted throughout East and West Pennsylvania Avenue. Just like a year ago, speed limits will be reduced to 20 mph throughout the night of the event. No parking will be allowed on East Pennsylvania, designated areas for paid parking will be on East Pennsylvania. Traffic will not be allowed through the Historic District along West Pennsylvania and Chestnut Street (State Road 40). West Pennsylvania will be closed off at 4 p.m., while the side streets along East Pennsylvania will be closed off beginning at 3:30 p.m. Vaughn stressed the need for both courtesy and safety. Its important for people to not park in other peoples yards, she said. And remember to use the cross walks, because its the safest way for people to get across (U.S.) 41. Three beer gardens will be set up; however, only chamber-approved cups will be used for alcoholic beverages on the streets during the event. A volunteer staff will monitor and enforce the rules. Those without such a cup drinking alcoholic beverages will be required to empty their drink or potentially be fined, law enforcement officials said. The whole idea behind this is, we believe people can take a minute out of their worries and daily grind, Vaughn said. So we wanted to be able to include everybody in the community. Mardi Gras-themed accessories and Jazz Up Dunnellon shirts will be on sale the night of Jazz Up. The Jazz Up Dunnellon shirts will display the sponsors for this years event. The Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce will have designated driving offered by Scallys. Dunnellon Fire Rescue, in conjunction with Munroe Regional Medical Center, will offer Just Hands CPR as well as fire extinguisher training from 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday during the festival. Dunnellon Fire Rescue, which is competing for a $10,000 grant to be awarded by Liberty Mutual through its fire safety program, Be Fire Smart Pledge, will have a computer station set up to allow Jazz Up attendees to vote online. For information, visit www.dunnellonchamber. org or call the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce at (352) 489-2320. Officials began testing the system Monday, connecting City Hall and the police and fire departments to provide necessary traffic to see how well the components are working. The testing this week is being done simultaneously with the current system each location is currently on so as not to impede any work that needed to be done. We need to get traffic on it, he said. We need to see how its performing. Esch said officials are hopeful the full system will be online and active by mid-December, but explained they were hesitant to give a firm date. We just dont want to mislead the public, he said. We dont want to hit snags and be delayed and have people expecting it. Thats been one of major problems with Greenlight Communications thus far. Originally, former General Manger Jesse Mason, had planned to have the system operational in the spring. It never happened and he resigned shortly thereafter due to personal reasons. Greenlight was tentatively to be up and running in July, but officials hit a snag when it could not acquire fiber or a firm delivery date from the company it had agreed to purchase it from when officials started the initiative. Esch, who has overseen most of the technical aspects of the much anticipated enterprise operation, said there was a minor snag in the latest order, but he assured the City Council the company supplying the material would make good. Theyve offered to cover the costs of getting the rest of the material here in a timely manner, Esch said, noting its a very small portion of what the city needs. They said they would graciously pay to get here on time; so I didnt want to penalize them for a communication error. Once the system is completely operation, Esch explained, the city will likely test the complete package with friendlies such as Mayor Fred Ward, other members of the council as well as at Greenlight Communications to make sure no bugs are in the system. Resident Mary Ann Hilton praised Esch for the report, but did have one major question. Is there a channel lineup? she asked. Esch and City Manager Lisa Algiere said most of the programming is complete, but officials are still working out final details for the remainder of the lineup. They said they hoped to have it completed within the next couple of weeks. Costs for services have not been announced. The City Council, in July, approved a $30,000-plus rate study that Algiere had noted would be completed in six to eight weeks, but the results of that study have not been released. Officials are banking on the success of Greenlight to help pay off more than $3 million in bonds spent thus far on the project. According to the recently completed budget sessions, officials are expected to make a $747,123 bond payment by November. How that payment will be made has not been made public. In the budget, approved Sept. 26, by the City Council, officials are expecting Greenlight Communications to make slightly more than $2 million this year once the fiber to the home program is completely operational and available to its entire coverage area. Esch did make one guarantee about the system. The quality will be impeccable, he told the Council. In other business, the City Council: OKd Dunnellon Fire Rescues pursuit of a Department of Homeland Security Assistance to Firefighters Grant for Safety Equipment. The grant is for $25,182 and requires a 5 percent match from the city. Approved the acceptance of a FDLE JAG Grant for Community Policing Events.

Many people enjoy watching the changing seasons, and in many parts of the country we find ourselves at that time of the year when the shifting from one season to another seems most enjoyable. In many parts of the country, the lush green foliage gradually fades to an autumn rainbow of yellow-orange-red-brown. Cool air brings light jackets out of closets. Pumpkins and decorative corn begin to appear on porches and doorsteps. But, seasons are not the only things that change. When it comes to some changes, we at Social Security need to know about them. If you receive Social Security benefits, there are certain things that we need to know about you in order to continue paying your benefits. Here is a reminder of some of the most important reporting responsibilities for people who receive Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Your address: Even if you receive your payments by direct deposit or debit card (as most people do), we still need a good mailing address so we can get in touch with you when we need to. You can inform us of a change of address, as well as telephone number, at our website, www.socialsecurity.gov. Your direct deposit information: If your payments go to your financial institution for direct deposit, you need to notify us of any changes. If you change your account information without letting us know, your payment could go to the wrong place. You can change your deposit information at our website www.socialsecurity.gov. Your work, if disabled: If you receive disability benefits, we need to know about any work you do. If you start work, stop work, or have any change in your work, hours, or pay, we need to know. Your living arrangements, if you receive SSI: People who receive SSI are paid, in part, based on financial need. Payments may change based on your living arrangements. Because of that, we need to know how many people are in your household and how the expenses are shared. There are other things we need to know about, such as if youre institutionalized, if youre no longer able to handle your finances, or if youve been convicted of a crime.

Learn more about reporting responsibilities for people receiving SSI at www.socialsecurity.gov/p ubs/11011.html. Some changes can be reported online at www.socialsecurity.gov. You can report changes to us by calling 1-800-7721213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) or contacting your local office. Seasons change; theres little to report there. But, when it comes to changes in the lives of people who receive benefits from Social Security, please remember to keep us informed. Social Security Questions and Answers Question: How do I update or correct the name on my Social Security card? Answer: To update or correct the name on your Social Security card: Complete an Application for A Social Security Card (Form SS-5), available at www.socialsecurity.gov/online/ss-5.pdf; Show us original documents proving your legal name change, identity, and U.S. citizenship (if you have not already established your citizenship with us), or immigration status if you are not a U.S. citizen; and Take or mail your completed application and original documents to your local Social Security office. Note that we must see originals and cannot use photocopies. We will return any original document you mail to us. Learn more at www.socialsecurity.gov. Question: How do I report a lost Social Security card? Answer: You do not have to report a lost Social Security card. In fact, reporting a lost or stolen card to Social Security will not prevent misuse of your Social Security number. You should let us know if someone is using your number to work. For more information, call 800-772-1213 or TTY at 800-325-0778. If you think someone is using your number, there are several other actions you should take: Contact the Federal Trade Commission online at www.ftc.gov/bcdp/edu/microsites/idtheft or call 877-ID-THEFT (877-4384338); File an online complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center at www.ic3.gov; Contact the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit by calling 800-908-4490 between 8 am. and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday.; and Monitor your credit report. Question: I work in retirement. How much can I earn and still collect full Social Security retirement benefits? Answer: Social Security uses the formulas below, depending on your age, to determine how much you can earn before we must reduce your benefit: If you are younger than full retirement age: $1 in benefits will be deducted for each $2 you earn above the annual limit. For 2011, that limit is $14,160. In the year you reach your full retirement age: $1 in benefits will be deducted for each $3 you earn above a different limit, but we count only earnings before the month you reach full retirement age. For 2011, this limit is $37,680. Starting with the month you reach full retirement age: you will get your benefits with no limit on your earnings. Find out your full retirement age at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/agei ncrease.htm Question: What are the four parts of Medicare? Answer: There are four parts to Medicare. Hospital insurance (Part A) helps pay hospital bills and some followup care. The taxes you paid while you were working financed this coverage, so, for most people, its premium free. Medical insurance (Part B) helps pay doctors bills and other services. You must pay a monthly premium for Medicare Part B and you have the option to refuse this coverage. Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans generally cover many of the same benefits a Medigap policy would cover, such as extra days in the hospital after you have used the number of days Medicare covers. People with Medicare Parts A and B can choose to receive all of their health care services through one of these provider organizations under Part C. There might be additional premiums required for some plans; and Prescription drug coverage (Part D) helps pay for medications doctors prescribe for treatment. Anyone who has Medicare hospital insurance (Part A), medical insurance (Part B), or a Medicare Advantage plan (Part C) is eligible for prescription drug coverage (Part D). Joining a Medicare prescription drug plan is voluntary and you pay an additional monthly premium for the coverage.Adon Williams is the Social Security district manager in Ocala.

Heres a few tips Believe it or not, fall is here and even the summer temperatures will be on their way out soon. And fall comes with plenty of perks: hot apple cider, corn field mazes, family festivals, several holidays and some of the most pleasant weather possible. Fall is also one of the best times to plant certain vegetables, flowers and trees. Trees planted during the fall will have a whole season, plus the cool winter and mild spring to become established before the oftenbrutal summer sun returns. If youre thinking of trying your hand at gardening this season, read on for some hints from UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service. n Location matters. Vegetables, for example, need a minimum of six hours of full sun each day and plenty of water. Make sure a water source is nearby, such as a spigot or a hose long enough to reach the garden. n Gardens take time. Before you begin to plant, youll need to spend some time developing a garden plan and complete initial land preparation. Gardens need attention every day, so start out small so you dont get overwhelmed. Try small flower beds instead of large, landscaped planters or plant vegetables in pots or in a small patch instead of a fullscale garden. n Plant what? Some good cool season vegetables are beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, Chinese cabbage, collards, lettuce, mustard, onions, parsley, radish and spinach. Some flowers that flourish in the fall are chrysanthemums, pansies, petunias and snap dragons. n Healthy soil. Soil quality affects the health and success of your future garden. If you walk the garden aisles in a store, youll find many soil fertilizers and amendments, but without testing your soil, you wont know whats needed for your plants to do well. Though soil testing sounds pricy and too advanced for a simple backyard garden, you can get a free soil pH test at UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service. n Need help? UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service offers assistance through its plant clinic. Staffed by volunteer Master Gardeners and overseen by the Horticulture extension agent, residents can call or stop in to bring their problem plants, garden gripes or mysterious bugs that are bugging their buds and blooms. For a free soil test kit or other garden needs, call (352) 671-8400 or visit www.marioncountyfl.org/extensionservice.htm. Questions? Contact Norma Samuel, Horticulture extension agent at UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service at 352671-8400 or normal.samuel@marioncountyfl.org.

She attended the University of Florida to major in English. She is certified in English and ESOL, and currently teaches English II and English II Honors to ninth and tenth graders.

Castro said she first decided to become a teacher in her senior year of college, when she volunteered at Gainesville High School.

She is currently teaching World History and World History Honors. I had a calling in my heart to teach, she said. I wanted to make a difference. Cierra Thompson, a sophomore in Ms. Noffsingers class, said that she likes how Noffsinger allows her students to work in groups. Principal Michelle Lewis said this about the award winners: I am so proud to have Ms. Castro and Ms. Noffsinger representing Dunnellon High School.

Their award was presented at the Florida Association for Media in Education Conference. The video went on to the International Student Media Festival where it received an Excellence in Media Production K-3 Live Action. The students attending were: Andrew Zenonos, Hannah Devine, Ayden Leeds, Trace Nagele, Shylou Shields and Elliott Dillon. They all received a certificate and DMS video production students garner FAME Awards Dunnellon Middle School had four winning videos at this years FAME/Jim Harbin Student Film Festival, the statewide video competition. Awards were handed out Wednesday, Oct. 5, in Orlando. DMS won the comedy category with Wild Campus and the documentary category with Our Day of Drama. The video Believe was awarded second place in the Drama Category and the PSA When Im Gone took third place. Those present for the awards ceremony, from left, are: Roberto Webb, Kevin Brown, Tania Centiceros, Kelly Brown, Principal Jane Ashman, Krista Palazzo, Tiffany Jones and Diego Tentiente. Im really happy with the results, said DMS teacher Beth Wood, who overseas the video production program. Other districts are becoming very competitive and we dont have a lot of the technology that many of the other schools have. So the kids really have to work hard on their storytelling. Like I always tell them, Its not what you got, its what you do with what you got. Special to the Riverland News LAURA RILEY For the Riverland News Castro, Noffsinger picked for respective honors Do you love to read, but find yourself straining to read books with smaller-thancomfortable print? Would you rather enjoy audio books? The Dunnellon Public Library has a growing collection of books and resources to meet the special needs of its patrons. Looking for that classic or favorite book in large print? At your library, old favorites are represented, and so are the newest titles from the hottest authors. Recent additions include books by James Patterson, Heather Graham and Jeffrey Archer. Readers with limited vision will enjoy audio books from the librarys vast collection as a way of meeting their reading needs, as will anyone with a long commute. Think of audio for those hands busy, mind free times, such as working out at the gym, walking the dog or even doing the dishes. Youll get in some reading time while accomplishing another task. Special resources at the library, however, are not limited to the traditional print or recorded book editions. Last year, the Marion County Public Library System secured funding through a federal grant to provide computer equipment for the use of people with disabilities. This grant, aptly titled Windows to the World, allowed the purchase of technology that magnifies a computer screen up to 36 times. The accompanying OpenBook 8.0 software enhances scanning and reading. Another software, Jaws for Windows, converts text into synthesized speech. Try it out yourself, or pass the word to your friends and family members with special needs. Staff members at the library can also help blind individuals apply for Florida Division of Blind Services Bureau of Braille and Talking Book Library Services. Librarians are authorized to certify that the applicant is qualified to receive this free service. More information on this service is available at http://dbs.myflorida.com/ Reach the Bureau by phone at 1-800-226-6075.

Special to the Riverland News ASHMAN continued from page 10 STUDENTS continued from page 10 detailing the effects of different flower preservatives on fresh flowers. They then decided to conduct an experiment testing several different products on carnations. They tested several groups with the prepackaged floral food, sugar, fertilizer and tap water. Their research showed plain water held fresh floral for the longest period of time. Their project and presentation won first place, allowing them the chance to compete at the state level. And thats how Kouva entered the picture and a spot at nationals. Because a family event conflicted with the date of the national conference, Navetta couldnt attend. So Reed sought out Kouva to fill in and help tackle the next phase of the already started project. How could I say no? Kouva said. I cant deny an offer like that. Thats not to say the nerves arent churning. Im more nervous than anything, but Im really excited too, Kouva said. Just being there is going to an amazing experience. Recently, the pair just completed the second leg of the project in which they added a twist to the original aspect of the testing phase. Not only did they use the same combinations, they added bleach with the water in some of the vases; hoping the bleach would kill off any potential mold and prolong the flowers freshness. Thus far, theyve complied all of their information on a Death Scale, a chart packed with information about their project. During competition, theyll provide the statistics in their speech. Theyll be judged on the data they collected and their presentation. Knowing the competition is going to be tough, they understand placing in the top three and earning scholarship money will certainly be a challenge. Especially since the FFA comprises the entire United States. Theres going to be a lot of people there, Reed said. Its going to be crazy. Reason enough she plans on bringing her camera and camcorder. Youre going to hate me, Reed explained to Kouva. Im going to take pictures of everything and everywhere. The two, members of the Dunnellon High FFA Chapter now, plan to ask a lot of questions and obtain as much information as possible during the four-day competition. They certainly hope to return to the national convention in the next four years, but after that? Neither has plans to enter the teaching profession like Amanda Hayward, the Dunnellon Middle FFA sponsor. The 2001 Crystal River High School graduate, who was a member of FFA during her high school career, said attending the national convention was the No. 1 reason she wanted to become a teacher. As for Reed and Kouva, both want to become veterinarians. Both said they own several small animals. I would certainly support FFA in whatever community Im living in, she said. I remember when I got in it in sixth grade, I never spoke. Now, Im a social butterfly. And she and Kouva are about to spread their wings.

12 Riverland News, Thursday, October 13, 2011 The new Dunnellon High Homecoming Queen has royal lineage. Chelsea Dominey was crowned Dunnellon High School Homecoming Queen at halftime of the Friday, Oct.7, varsity game against Santa Fe. Dominey was born into royalty. By an amazing chance, Chelsea Dominey: her mother, Julie ThompsonDominey, class of 1981; and her grandmother, Lani SmithThompson, class of 1961, have all been Dunnellon High School Homecoming Queens. Despite her royal blood, Dominey did not expect to win. I had no idea, I thought Abby (Hatfield) would win, Chelsea said. I was in complete shock, I couldnt move. Even though the crowning of Dominey would have made the event a tradition, she never felt pressured. I wasnt worried until the night of (the half-time crowning), she explained. I didnt want to be the one to ruin it. The Queen was royally flushed when she was announced as winner; walking by, you could hear her trying to catch her breath and say, Im shaking, Im shaking! Look at my hands, they wont stop shaking! Even two days later it still got to her. I was in complete shock, I couldnt move, Chelsea said. This tradition is a complete accident though. The women tried not to let their nerves get to them at all. I went to the pageant, I was trying not to get too excited, but I was, said her mother, Julie, who was crowned Homecoming Queen in 1981. Then they said she won and I cried, and I dont know what happened after that. Julie Dominey was shocked at her crowning in also. When I got crowned I didnt think I would win either. I cried then too, she exclaimed. Chelsea Dominey was well prepared to win, despite not campaigning. I taught her the same thing my mother taught me: be nice to everybody, and kind and friendly, said Julie Dominey. Julie Dominey gave God the credit for it all. Its all about Christ, she added. When asked the secret to success, her grandmother, Thompson, said the same thing: You have to be friendly and be good to people, we love people and are very friendly, said Thompson, who started the royal bloodlines by being crowned queen at the 1961 Homecoming festivies. The secret to success may not be only being kind to people, all three women were active cheerleaders during their high school careers. Thompson was the Queen of her graduating class of 19 students at the old DHS school house. The ones that nobody thinks would win, could win, Thompson said. And we are just so proud of Chelsea. She is really great with people. She used to take mentally handicapped children skating back in Wisconsin. The Lord has really blessed us. The legacy of the SmithThompson-Dominey girls will definitely continue in this family of queens, even though they arent competitive, they really excel in high school. This will be my legacy, Thompson said.

One of the most visually pleasing wild plants in our area, the Beauty Berry, has been in bloom for several weeks now. In August, when the local Muscadine grapes are ready for harvest, the Beauty Berries are as well. The intense purple berry of the plant draws a huge following of wildlife, particularly squirrels, butterflies and birds. Watching nature, we soon find there is much to be learned about the array of edible plants in our area. From berries and seeds, to nuts and bark; in a survival mode or for pleasure, food is all around us. Recently, I have been reading whatever I can find on the stunning Beauty Berry (Callicarpa Americana) plant. With plenty of information from numerous sources, I embarked on a Beauty Berry jelly experiment of my own. The results were not only pleasing to look at and a new taste sensation, but a new variety of jelly to add to the cupboard already full of recently made wild blackberry jam. My first discovery, on the morning of the harvest, was that some plants had already gone to seed. That was a disappointment for me, but I knew from my reading that the birds and squirrels would enjoy the dried fruits in the upcoming winter. Fortunately, the Beauty Berry bushes on my local ranch are numerous. They seem to just pop up everywhere to my delight. So I chose another plant and decided the best way to handle the harvest was with a small pair of loppers. I removed enough branches laden with berries to fill a large tub and then hauled them to the porch to remove leaves and twigs. Cleaning off the berries was quite time-consuming and I was already thinking there had to be a better way. But, I continued removing leaves, twigs and then rubbing my hands across the berries so they would fall into a bowl. For the recipe I was using, I needed a quart and a half of berries. If you are familiar with the Beauty Berry, you know that the individual berries are very, very small. Thankfully, they grow in nice, neat clusters. Once the berries were free of their greenery, I brought them to the kitchen to wash as well as inspect for remaining leaves or a possible beetle. After a nice rinse, I measured the quart and a half of berries and poured them into a large stainless steel pot, adding two quarts of water. The water was brought to a boil and allowed to boil for about 20 minutes to create the infusion (liquid extract, as in tea.) As it boiled, I was a bit sad to see the powerful purple color slowly disappear and the concoction take on a gold color with light green foam rising to the top. The liquid remained a dark color when strained. I placed three cups of the infusion into another cooking pot and added one package of Sure jell and 4 1/2 cups of sugar. I had also read that many people add fresh lemon juice at this point, so I did as well, squeezing and adding 1/3 cup of lemon juice to the liquid. This mixture is then brought to a boil for two minutes and here the foam rises rapidly. The pot must be carefully watched and stirred constantly to dissolve the sugar and Sure jell. After skimming off the newly formed foam, I poured the hot liquid, which now had turned a beautiful rosy color, into my sterilized jelly jars, capped the jars and set the jars into the cooker for 10 minutes of steam pressurization and sealing. After pressurizing, I removed the jars from the container and set them on the counter and waited for each lid to pop verifying to me that the jars had sealed properly. As directed, I left them to sit and jell for the next 24 hours. When complete, the little jars of jelly looked beautiful. The jelly is rose-colored and almost translucent. The taste is quite different from what I expected. I had sampled a few of the berries while they were still on the stem and I found them rather meaty and bland. I could eat them if I had too, but off the bush Id just as soon leave them for the birds and squirrels. It is the sugar, Sure jell and lemon that turn the earthy berries into a sweet jelly. According to authors and writers of edible plants, Beauty Berry was a popular plant with Native Indians. The entire plant was used as food and for medicinal purposes. A tea made from the roots was used to treat dysentery and stomach aches, a decoction of the root bark as a diuretic and the leaves for dropsy. Another tea made from the roots and berries was used to treat colic and the leaves and roots were used in sweat lodges for the treatment of malaria, rheumatism and fevers. The leaves have also been found to contain certain chemicals that repel mosquitoes, fire ants and ticks. Farmers would place a leafy branch of Beauty Berry, with the leaves in tact, in the harness on their mule or horse. They found that the plant was effective in keeping pests at bay especially from around their animals eyes. I have tried rubbing the leaves on my skin and I can vouch for the fact that it does indeed repel insects. When trying anything new in the wild plant arena, it is always best to do plenty of research. There are poisonous plants in the wild that are deadly if eaten, so one must be extremely diligent in understanding the plant you would like to consider consuming. Finding a plant that is beautiful and a food source is a wonderful discovery! Make sure the plants you collect are not along roadsides where toxins such as pollutants and pesticides are plentiful and always make sure you leave more of the plant than you take. The library offers books on edible wild plants and more information than you would need can be located on a computer search. Two highly recommended books are Floridas Incredible Edibles by Dick Deureling and Peggy Lantz and Field Guide to Wild Edible Plants by Bradford Angier. Discover for yourself the joys of the edible wild plants around you. Many local edibles can be viewed at Rainbow Springs State Park, keeping in mind that everything in the state park is protected and not available to be picked or harvested. However, for the purpose of familiarizing yourself with the plants, taking photos and speaking to knowledgeable staff and volunteers about our local plants, a walk around the park would be productive. You will be amazed at the numerous plants that grow wild in our area and are fit for consumption.

Coming out for the first time are Natalie Cote, Charles Cross, Daniel Pastore and Dillon Lamb. The year will be very interesting on seeing who shines the brightest and who has the biggest improvements, coaches Valerie Bazarte and Tracy Young explained. Both were not sure how things would go this season, but Dunnellons meet Sept. 27 at Belleview left them surprised with the level of new talent they have. On Sept. 27, at Belleview, Victor was the victor. That is, Victor Chicas, a name that is easily recognized when it comes to cross country. Chicas, a junior, has been turning in successful performances since his freshman season. Belleview was no different for him, as he finished with a time of 17:31, besting his nearest competitor by more than 30 seconds. It felt good to win and Im closer to reaching my goal now, he said. Since the Mountain Dew Invitational on Sept. 25, Chicas said he was not pleased with his performance, where he finished with a time of 17:43. Ive been busting my butt because I was upset at how I did, he explained. Daniel Pastore also had a great run with a time of 23:40 at Belleview. Bazarte spoke highly of him after the Belleview Invitational. Hes only been with us for a little over a week, she explained. But hes still putting forth great effort. For the Lady Tigers, Courtney Pike finished 13th at Belleview with a time of 26:39. On Oct. 4, the Buffalo Invitational at The Villages High School, featured more 25 schools. At this meet, Chicas bested his Belleview time by a few seconds, but placed second behind Citrus High Schools Tim Wenger High. The team did not receive a score because only four runners participated. They are doing great, improving time, Chicas said of the team. But we need to work harder and need to work on teamwork, but besides that we are doing great. Dunnellons cross country team will compete today at Crystal River High School. Dunnellons Victor Chicas has performed well in the past two meets, winning the Belleview Invitational by more than 30 seconds over his closest competitor, and finishing second at the Buffalo Invitational at The Villages High School. That event had more than 25 teams competing.JOE DUNAWAY/For the Riverland News Tigers JV football hooks Sharks, 22-7 DHS posts third victory of yearBROOKSVILLE The Dunnellon High School junior varsity football team swam past the Nature Coast Sharks on Wednesday, Oct. 5, posting a 22-7 victory, its third win of the season. The first half was a little rough, Dunnellon coach Archie Smith said. But when the second half came around, we pulled it together and played the game we know. The Tigers Brandon Smith took the opening kickoff to the 46-yard line. But Dunnellon struggled moving the ball in the first quarter; however, the Sharks found it tough going against the Dunnellon defense. At the start of the second quarter, the Tigers defense hit hard. Kyle McMann dislocated his pinky finger while bringing somebody down. I looked down and saw my pinky pointed back at me and thought it was pretty cool, he said. All that was going through my head was, I need to pull it back and return to the game. Soon after, Nature Coast pitched the ball and its ball carrier ran it up the middle, taking a bite out of the Tigers for the first score of the game, giving the Sharks a 7-0 lead. With 3:48 left in the first half, Dunnellon was on the prowl for revenge. The Tigers came close, but failed to cut its deficit. The Tigers trailed 7-0 at the half. As the second half got under way, Devin Simms kicked the ball off as McMann returned to the game ready to rumble. In a battle in the trenches between the teams, the Tigers fought hard to get the ball to goal line. Dunnellons defense stopped the Sharks, giving the offense the opportunity to strike. And the Tigers did just that. Quarterback Tyler Powell ran up the middle, scoring a touchdown for the Tigers, as Devin Smith converted the 2-point attempt, giving Dunnellon an 8-7 lead. The Tigers defense pinned the Sharks offense down, reeling them in from scoring a touchdown. Then it was the Tigers turn to try and score. With the Tigers running in full force, Powell handed the ball off to Devin Smith, who scored Dunnellons second touchdown as well as adding the 2-point conversion for a 16-7 lead. Once again with the ball, Nature Coast was stymied by the Tigers defense. Dunnellons Deion Humbert recovered a fumble and returned it for the Tigers final score with 5:44 remaining in the game. The Sharks got one last chance to trim their 22-7 deficit, but Dunnellons defense withstood the final attack. I am always looking for players who can step it up and play different positions and today I saw potential in many of them, coach Archie Smith said, discussing todays game against Trinity Catholic with his squad. Trinity, our next opponent, has some of the best guys in Marion County. We need to have intensity on both our offense and defense. It is going to be a tough game. Kick off is at 7 p.m. today at Ned Love Field as the Tigers host Trinity Catholic. Peak performers Prior to the start of the season, first-year coach Roger Sibbald wasnt sure what to expect from his team. His goals were for his team to improve throughout the season and peak at the right time. So far, that appears to the case, especially with Ryan Molloy and Bryce Thalacker leading the charge for the Tigers as of late. Molloy had perhaps his best two outings of the season two weeks ago against Forest, West Port and St. John. The junior fired a pair of back-to-back 4over-par 40s in the two meets, winning medalist honors at both matches. Thalacker, a sophomore, hasnt been too shabby either, finishing with a 41 against Forest and West Port as well as carding a 47 against St. John a couple of weeks ago. I am very proud of the way the golf team has responded this year, said Sibbald, who noted Mondays County Championship at Ocala Municipal was rained out with a possible nine-hole tournament rescheduled for today. Ryan and Bryce were my two most consistent golfers on the year. Their performances as of late certainly could make the pair spoilers at the District 1A8 Golf Championships when the field tees off at 10 a.m. Monday at Southern Woods Golf and Country Club in Homosassa. The top four teams in the field advance to the Regional 1A-3 Championships the following week; however, the top seven individual golfers not on a team advancing to the regional championship also earn a spot. Both Molloy and Thalacker are certainly up for the challenge. I feel that Im going to do my best and I will move into the next round, Molloy said. Thalacker believes hes AMANDA BARNEY For the Riverland News Thomas Reilly Boys Swimming As a freshmen swimmer, Reilly has shown great improvement throughout the year. He is always working hard at practice to get better. He has improved his times almost every time he is in the pool, Dunnellon coach Bruce Wentz said.

Santa Fe raids Tiger Stadium For the past two seasons, the Dunnellon High School football team had run the gamut against its respective slate of opponents. That wont be the case this season as Santa Fe, bolstered by a relentless defense, upended Dunnellon, 21-7, Friday night at Ned Love Field. And the Tigers, losers of two straight games, were their own worst enemy, specifically in the fourth quarter where Dunnellon has seemed to be at its best the past two seasons. The Tigers (3-3 overall, 1-1 District 5A-5) turned the ball over three times, five for the game, as they couldnt solve the Raiders relentless blitz, despite outgaining them 214-64. Thats not what we do, thats now what were about, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said about his teams turnovers. You cant do that against a 5-0 team and expect to win. It was pretty abysmal. Weve had problems with it all year. Everybody works on it. We all coach it. Santa Fe returned two turnovers for touchdowns, both by defensive back Chris Jackson. The junior defensive back returned a fumble 23 yards on the Tigers second play of the game in the opening period and sealed the Tigers fate with a 30yard interception return in the fourth quarter. That certainly set the tone for the game, Beasley said about Jacksons fumble return in the opening quarter. We were playing behind the eight-ball after that happened. The junior defensive back also recovered a fumble in the fourth quarter for the Raiders, who snapped Dunnellons 15-game district winning streak dating to the 2008 season. With one loss now in the district, Beasley admitted it will be tough for his team in the coming weeks if the Tigers hope to make the playoffs again. Dunnellon has three district games remaining, against Belleview, Crystal River and North Marion. It certainly puts us in a tough spot, Beasley said. Well probably need some help from somebody. The Tigers certainly had their chances especially in the fourth quarter thanks in large part to their defense, which kept Santa Fe in throughout the game. The Raiders lone offensive touchdown came on a two-play, 1-yard drive that was set up by Brandon Willis 66-yard punt return to start the second quarter. After Dunnellon defensive back Mohammed Refaei made a spectacular over-the-shoulder interception of errant throw by Raiders signal-caller Tim Deen in the closing minutes of the third period, the Tigers offense seemed to get the spark it needed. Facing a crucial fourth-and-goal from the 9-yard line, Dunnellons Wesley Beasley hauled in a 9-yard reception from quarterback Jordon Boley. Beasleys extra point cut the Raiders lead in half, 14-7, with 11:01 remaining in the contest. On Santa Fes ensuing possession, Dunnellon forced the Raiders to punt from their 26-yard line. A bad snap forced Santa Fe to punt from its own goal line and set the Tigers next drive at the Raiders 40yard line. However, two plays later as Dunnellon was driving, they committed the first of its three fourth-quarter turnovers. The Tigers again forced another turnover, as Refaei intercepted his second pass of the game, giving Dunnellons offense possession of the ball at the 50-yard line. Four plays later, the Tigers again fumbled and caught a break when Jacksons 65-yard fumble return for a touchdown was negated by a penalty. Dunnellons defense held the Raiders in check, forcing a punt on a fourth-and-13, giving the Tigers offense the ball at their own 19yard line. But two players later, Jackson picked off another errant pass, scampering 30 yards for the score. Dunnellon has a bye this Friday. The Tigers return to action at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, at Belleview. Were going to have to chew on this for the next couple of weeks, Beasley said about the loss. Well get after the next couple of weeks and come back strong.

Turnovers doom Dunnellon in 21-7 district loss to Raiders JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Volleyball has rough week The Lady Tigers had a very good week, with another three games; they put up a fight, showing improvement. Starting off Homecoming Week, the seats were filled with fans to show their support on Monday, Oct. 3, when Dunnellon hosted Crystal River. Losing all three games, 25-12, 25-16 and 25-18, the girls never gave up. They worked hard all three games and had some exciting moments, making the fans proud. On Tuesday, Oct. 4, the Lady Tigers played Tavares at home and went to four games. Starting off slowly, with a score of 2526 the first game, but ending with a loss. The second game, they came together and got pumped up and ended with a closer score of 25-22. The third game was the turning point of the Lady Tigers, as they won, 26-24, forcing a fourth set. However, the last game the girls tried something new, but it didnt work in a 25-7 loss. On Wednesday, Oct. 5, Dunnellon traveled to Lake Weir, and walked into the junior varsity winning, as the JV Lady Tigers had an exciting match going into three games, the first game the score was 25-17 with a victory for the Tigers. The second game they lost 2510, and the third game the JV Lady Tigers came together with a win of 15-9. The varsity Lady Tigers had close games of 25-23, 25-21, and 25-15, but lost against Lake Weir. Dunnellon played Tuesday night at North Marion. Results were not available at press time. The Lady Tigers close the regular season Friday, Oct. 21, at West Port. ready to compete against some of the best competition in the district. I feel like Ill do well, because Im prepared, he added. Sibbald points to the schedule as a benefit for his team. Despite only facing two district teams this season, Crystal River, the defending district champion, and Seven Rivers, the Tigers competed against the likes of Forest, Vanguard, Trinity Catholic and others throughout the season. We have played some great local competition and look forward to the challenge of facing our district competition, Sibbald said. With our district being south, we chose to schedule local and incounty schools due to time restraints. No matter how Monday goes, Sibbald points to a bright future in the Dunnellon golf program. All the boys are back next year, he exclaimed. Seniors Chelsea Dominey and Madeline Tourne will represent the golf team at the Girls District 1A-8 field at Abby Course at St. Leos University, near Dade City. Chelsea was a surprise this year, splitting time between golf and cheerleading, Sibbald said. She has a great swing and competed against the boys all year.

Iwas sitting in a restaurant on a Friday afternoon enjoying a leisurely repast with some friends. Somewhere in the middle of our conversation, my cell phone went off. Without even thinking about it, I reached into my shirt pocket, pulled it out and answered it. It was then I was struck with an awful thought. I am now a child of this contemporary technological world. I never thought I would succumb to this sort of thing. But here I am; Im not the man I used to be, and Im not even sure Im the man I want to be. On my way home, I thought about how far I have come in this modern world. Then, for some reason I thought of my old grandfather. He died in 1974 and every once in a while I think about him. This was one of those times. What came to my mind this particular time was when my grandmother got a new contraption for their home. Grandfather was not enthused about some of these modern advances. My grandfather allowed grandmother to get electricity in the house, but when it came to indoor plumbing he was dead set against it. He had used the old outhouse in the back as far as he could remember. His father had used it before him. As far as grandfather was concerned, he was going to use that outhouse until he died. He did not need any of this newfangled indoor plumbing. And that was that. My grandmother said to him at the time, Pap, is that your last word on the subject? It sure is, my grandfather responded. Grandmother looked at him and said, Great, the plumber is coming tomorrow and I wont have to put up with any more of your guff. The next morning, right on grandmothers schedule, the plumber came and fitted the house with indoor plumbing. Just to be spiteful, my grandfather never used the indoor plumbing. He showed grandmother that he was boss in some certain regard, and used the outhouse for the rest of his life. Then the time came when the telephone line went down the valley where grandmother and grandfather lived. Knowing the hard time grandfather gave her with the indoor plumbing, she decided not to tell him about the installation of the telephone. She knew he would disapprove, so why ask. Grandfather came home that night, as usual, and sat down to a very nice supper. So far, he had not noticed the addition in the living room. Grandmother, the diplomat that she was, did not bother to point it out to him. Grandfather, as was his custom, settled down to read the evening newspaper in the living room completely unaware of the change that had come to this sanctuary of his. Grandmother was in the kitchen busy cleaning off the table, washing the dishes and getting her kitchen back into shape before retiring to the living room for an evening of relaxation. Suddenly, a ringing noise exploded in the living room. Grandfather, not knowing what had happened, jumped out of his chair and exited the living room faster than he had ever done so before. In the kitchen, grandmother had been so busy with her work she forgot about this new contraption. She too was scared. The ringing continued without stopping. Grandfather was beside himself and considered getting his shotgun not knowing who or what had invaded his living room. Then it dawned on grandmother. Oh, she said with a sigh of relief. Thats the telephone ringing. The what? Telephone. Whos Phone, and what in the world do you want to tell him? No, grandmother said and ran into the living room to answer the phone. Its the telephone ringing. By this time, she had got to the telephone and had answered it. My grandfather stared at her as she talked into the telephone receiver. Woman, he said with a great deal of alarm, what in the world is wrong with you? Grandmother ignored him and continued talking on the telephone. Now grandfather was worried. Watching his wife talk to someone who was not there and even at times laughing when there wasnt anything funny, caused him alarm. Finally, out of sheer desperation, he went over, took the contraption out of her hand and taking her by the arm and, Now, dear. Theres nothing to worry about. Just come over and sit down here in your chair and everything will be all right. But Im talking to I know, I know. But you see, dear, theres nobody there. Youre just having one of your spells. Grandfather never came to terms with grandmothers newfangled contraption. To my knowledge, he never used it, never spoke to anybody on it, never listened to anybody talking to him on it. As far as he was concerned, it was one of grandmothers hallucinations. It has been a long time since I thought about grandmothers telephone. On my way home from my luncheon meeting I thought about all the inventions that have come into our world. I thought of what the Bible said, Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions (Ecclesiastes 7:29 KJV). We seem to be quick on our inventions, but rather slow on connecting with God. With all our inventions, are we any better off? Instead of seeking inventions, we would be better served in seeking God.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.
