Start me up: Riverland News celebrates 30th anniversary Thirty years ago, the Dunnellon Press shut its doors, leaving the community without a newspaper to call its own. So with a vision in mind to launch a new product and provide Dunnellon with a community newspaper, Nell Rhodes went to work. The long time resident and business owner started selling shares at $250 apiece to folks throughout the community. She allowed anyone to buy a share, but no one could have more than two. Rhodes needed to raise $25,000 to get the product off the ground. In no time at all she raised the $25,000, and with it came the start of the Riverland News. Very few people turn us down, she said, noting there were 50 shareholders when the paper launched in 1981. I always had faith wed get it down. And 30 years later, the Riverland News is still here, though under the ownership of Landmark Community Newspapers. In 1983, the Riverland News sold to Republic Newspapers. Each shareholder received $2,700 for the original investment in the newspaper. A few years later and Landmark purchased the Riverland News. Todays edition marks the start of the 30th anniversary of the newspaper. She said there were plenty of other players involved in launching the Riverland News; from former attorney Bo Brett Nell Rhodes had vision, saw need for community newspaper Annie, or anyone else, get your guns Central Florida Armory open for businessThe second amendment of the United States Bill of Rights states U.S. citizens have the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. And as Joe Brown sees it, hes more than happy to provide the right firearm to those who are seeking to do just that. Brown knows weapons. Hes a former Levy County Sheriffs Office deputy for nine years in the 1990s. He also spent the past nine years working for a private contractor overseas, including eight years in Iraq. A few months ago, he opened Central Florida Armory at 12009 S. Williams St. He said he specializes in all types of firearms as well as ammunition. The business is open from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Right now, handguns are very popular, he said, explaining that despite the economy more folks are purchasing weapons as a source of home protection. For those not familiar with guns, Im certainly going to point out the advantages of a particular weapon. For example, he said, if youre not familiar with weapons, but want to purchase a handgun, he would likley try to persuade those less experienced folks to opt for a revolver. Youll find theyre less complicated, he explained. He carries both new and used weapons in his store; and he also sells weapons via consignment. Brown said most folks are purchasing used weapons because of their affordability. Its not really about the make or model, he explained. However, for those wanting a specific make, model or caliber of weapon, Brown said he can get it. But it might take a day or two beFeeding frenzy If you build it, they will come. The Voice, Field of DreamsTheyve been coming for the past 35 years, ever since one woman in the community realized a need to provide food to those less fortunate. Today, theyre still coming, and in much larger numbers. Within the coming weeks, officials at the Annie W. Johnson Family & Service Center anticipate stocking the shelves in their newest addition, a 512square-foot facility thats been in the works for the past three years. Part of the cost of the facility is being covered by a $14,000 grant obtained from United Way of Marion County, while the remainder of the tab will be picked up by the proceeds the agency makes through its Annie W. Johnson Thrift Shop, which changed locations more than a year ago and has been thriving. Its been a blessing, Larry Cooper, executive director, said of the new location. While there were plenty of hurdles to clear during that time, officials are eagerly looking toward the future. Currently, the Annie W. Johnson Center provides services to both Marion and Citrus counties. Officials have seen an increase in need throughout the first nine months of 2011 and expect that trend to rise in the last quarter of 2011 as well as in 2012, especially with Angel Food ministries shutting down its program. Through the first nine months this year, more than 400,000 pounds of food has been provided to needy families. In 2010, the agency distributed 300,000 pounds. Of the 400,000 pounds given to individuals and families this year, more than 200,000 have been allocated to families in Marion County. There are 33 agencies throughout Marion County providing services to more than 3,000 people, not including seniors. Annie Johnsons alone serviced slightly more than a 1,000, or one-third of those who needed assistance in the past month alone. I think its a testament to what they do here, Mayor Fred Ward, a board member, said. Weve got 32 other agencies serving 2,000 people and here weve got one agency serving a third of the people. Because they serve so many people and specific programs require certain requirements, officials have partnered with Feeding America and recently purchased a truck to pick up supplies from different businesses throughout DunJEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsBob Coomer, Ronny Crawford and Clay Wahley, volunteers with the Annie W.

From what everybody says, we did great, said Martha Vaughn, noting the Chamber sold out of cups, beer and wine during the nights festivities that stretched across East and West Pennsylvania Avenue, throughout the Historic District and into Ernie Mills Park. Were pretty sure it was equal to last year just based on what was sold, as far as the volume that was going on, she added.

Its that time of year again open season is right around the corner for the Medicare Part D prescription drug plan. Hunting down the best plan for you is no game. Newly eligible Medicare beneficiaries, and current beneficiaries who are considering changes to their Medicare Part D plan, should mark their calendars for Oct. 15. The open season will run from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7. The Medicare Part D prescription drug program is available to all Medicare beneficiaries to help with the costs of medications. Joining a Medicare prescription drug plan is voluntary, and participants pay an additional monthly premium for the coverage. While all Medicare beneficiaries can participate in the prescription drug program, some people with limited income and resources also are eligible for extra help to pay for monthly premiums, annual deductibles, and prescription copayments. The extra help is worth about $4,000 a year. To figure out whether you are eligible for the extra help, Social Security needs to know your income and the value of any savings, investments and real estate (other than the home you live in). To qualify, you must be receiving Medicare and have: Income not over $16,335 for an individual or $22,065 for a married couple living together. Even if your annual income is higher, you still may be able to get some help with monthly premiums, annual deductibles, and prescription co-payments. Some examples where your income may be higher include if you or your spouse: Support other family members who live with you; Have earnings from work; or Live in Alaska or Hawaii; and Resources not more than $12,640 for an individual or $25,260 for a married couple living together. Resources include such things as bank accounts, stocks and bonds. We do not count your house or car as resources. You can complete an easy-to-use online application for extra help at www.socialsecurity.gov. Go to the Medicare tab on the top of the page. Then go to Apply For Extra Help With Medicare Prescription Plan Costs. To apply for the extra help by phone or have an application mailed to you, call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1800-325-0778) and ask for the Application for Extra Help with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs (SSA1020). If you would like more information about the Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Program itself, visit www.medicare.gov or call 800-MEDICARE (800-633-4227; TTY 877486-2048). So this open season (Oct. 15 to Dec. 7), after you track down the perfect prescription drug plan for you, hunt for something that could put about $4,000 in your pocket bag the best Medicare prescription drug plan for you and see if you qualify for the Extra Help through Social Security.

One pamphlet listed ways to contact legislators on the national levels; another gave Websites for contacting state officials. In addition, there was information about how to voice opinions through newspapers, on the phone, through the mail and by e-mail, both locally and nationally. Present on Saturday were Harriett Jones of Williston, Andrea Bickel of Ocala and Babs Hale and Drollene Brown of Morriston, part of a group of 12 that met in August to consider the topic, Rebuilding the American Dream. Saturdays event was borne of that meeting and its ensuing discussions among group members. Nuchnapa Crowther and her 7-year-old daughter came early to thank the group for its presence. Crowther, a student nurse who immigrated to Citrus Springs from Thailand, was gladdened to find ways to express her opinion. She said she was beginning to think she had left one Third-World country only to land in one that was spiraling down to the same fate. Crowthers daughter brought a sign she had made, thanking the group for speaking up for her generation. Others from Marion County and beyond stopped to talk, many of them deciding to join the group. Dunnellon residents Brenda Underwood and Joan Duggins joined the conversation, as did Ocala residents Carl Hill, Jim Carrell and Andrea Bikel Coming from outlying areas were Vicky Iozzia of Crystal River, Maralyn Boysen of Inverness and Elena Werksman of Hernando. Several stopped by without offering their cities of residence. Some of them were Blake Smith, Terry Blaes, Ron Brekken, and Joe and Nancy Valenchis. Besides offering methods for voicing opinions, CEE group members spoke with patrons about various issues and legislation that is currently up for vote. Those with internet access were given information on quickly and easily finding this information through the Website PopVox. Topics of conversation included getting America back to work, saving our Postal Service, cleaning up our springs, and repairing schools such as North Marion High, Sparr and Anthony Elementary schools. CEE is dedicated to informing the public about the importance of participating in the democratic process, offering a summary of significant issues and providing tools for engagement.

The Veterans who saved the world during World War II will make the fourth Honor Flight from Ocala to Washington, D.C., to visit the World War II Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery. On Thursday, Oct. 27, the Vets will leave Ocala Airport on a chartered plane for a full day of remembrance and reflection. In honor of this occasion, a send off and welcome home party is being planned. The send off party will be at 7 a.m. at the airport. That night, there will be the welcome home ceremony at 8 p.m. Volunteers are needed. For more information, contact Ocala Honor Flight at 352-351-9341. The Dunnellon Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Those wishing to can drop off their unwanted medications from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29, at the Dunnellon Police Department at 12014 S. Williams St.. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. Last April, Americans turned in 376,593 pounds 188 tons of prescription drugs at nearly 5,400 sites operated by the DEA and more than 3,000 state and local law enforcement partners. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trashboth pose potential safety and health hazards.

There isnt a Halloween costume clever enough to hide an impaired driver whos made the poor decision to get behind the wheel, Sgt. Jacob Gonzalez said. Whether youve had one too many or way too many it is just not worth the risk. Remember, Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving. Nighttime is an especially dangerous time to be on the road. But Halloween night is one of the deadliest nights of the year for impaired drivers. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 48 percent of all highway fatalities across the nation on Halloween night (6 p.m. Oct. 31 to 5:59 a.m. Nov. 1) in 2009 involved a driver or a motorcycle rider with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 grams per deciliter or higher, which is illegal in every state. The scariest parts of Halloween arent the spooky costumes and scary pranks, said Sgt. Gonzalez. Its the fact that too often impaired drivers dont plan ahead and end up making the roads scarier than a horror show. Dunnellon Police Department recommends these simple tips for a safe Halloween: Plan a safe way home before the festivities begin. Before drinking, designate a sober driver. If youre impaired, take a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation. If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, dont hesitate to contact local law enforcement. And remember, Friends Dont Let Friends Drive Drunk. If you know someone who is about to drive or ride while impaired, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely. Dunnellon Police Department will conduct a DUI Checkpoint from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 29, in the 20400 block of East Pennsylvania Avenue and Saturation Patrols from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday, Oct. 28, and Monday, Oct. 31.

River views Mayor wrong in calling county a municipalityAt the Dunnellon City Council meeting on Sept. 26, Mayor Fred Ward called Marion County a municipality and said, as such, it was exempt from the Dunnellon Tree Ordinance. This was in reference to the proposed county plan to remove a large number of trees within the city to construct a stormwater retention pond. He repeated this remark at the joint County Commission/City Council meeting Oct. 10. Wrong. A county is not a municipality and the Dunnellon Tree Ordinance makes no exemption for the county to remove a large number of trees within the city. To the contrary, the ordinance is very specific in requiring the issuance of a tree removal permit based on a tree survey and a removal and replacement plan being submitted to the city for approval.Burt Eno, PhD DunnellonHorizon of Hope Luncheon a great successThe fifth annual Horizon of Hope Luncheon was Oct. 8 at the Rainbow Springs Golf and Country Club. Our benefits were above and beyond our greatest expectations. Once again, our community came together and supported the Michelle-O-Gram and the American Cancer Society in a most magnificent way. For that, we say thank you. Several months ago, we put out a request for designer purses to use in the Chinese auction, live auction and as table centerpieces. We received more purses than one could imagine! Local businesses came forward with donations of gift certificates for a huge variety of services. Each purse was stuffed with a lottery ticket, at least $20 in gift certificates and a lot of other donated goodies. The auctioneer, Deana Sullivan, of Newberry, did what it took to average $200 for each of the 26 live auction purses. Geri Gibbs, Turner House Florist, created gorgeous centerpieces for each and every table using purses and her creative designs to make one-of-akind decorations. The Rainbow Springs Golf and Country Club was most accommodating. Repeat Boutiques Dana Brown presented a fashion show to rivaled by any department store. The fashions, and the models, were presented in the finest style and looked like professionals. Ms. Julie Mancini from Dunnellon High School arranged for many of her students to model. All the models are to be commended on their willingness and desire to serve their community. Brittany Lakhani, Miss Gainesville Teen USA, modeled and made us all proud of her, too. Vernon Martin Salon provided the finishing touch with gorHelp us celebrate 30 years in the news business Fall is in the house Although many people would argue that Florida has no fall season, I beg to differ. Not only do we have one, but its probably our best time of the year. Theres definitely a notable change in the air right now. OK, our leaves dont turn colors, but the dog days of summer are over. Now dont get me wrong, I love the summertime but I look forward to this change every year as Im sure many of you do, too. We have covered our pool for the season and although thats a sad sight, there is so much to look forward to. Family activities will now change from swimming and kayaking to a softball game in the yard or just throwing a Frisbee around or playing board games while eating a big bowl of chili. Yep, with fall comes a new energy; a desire to be outdoors with many things to do. October has bright cloudless skies full of sunshine. The kind of skies you could only dream about in the summertime when youre getting ready to make the four-hour trip down the Rainbow River and the ominous black sky is looming ahead. Its time to open the windows and let the cool breeze blow through the house. Smell the crisp, fresh air and the autumn leaves. Take a walk in the woods or go for a bicycle ride. Food will change from burgers and dogs to baked ham and a big pan of lasagna. Have you been to the Pickin Patch on Robinson Loop yet? If not, you have to go, it will put a smile on your face. Kids of all ages climbing hay bales and soaring through the air on tire swings hung on huge oak trees. And I havent even mentioned the pumpkins yet; so many pumpkins in all different sizes. Soon therell be pumpkins carved, roasted pumpkin seeds, pumpkin pie, thick pumpkin milkshakes and frothy pumpkin-spiced latts. Have I gotten your attention? Theres nothing like a Fall Festival. Can you smell the cotton candy and funnel cakes? Maybe I like fall so much because it brings out the kid in all of us. OK, real quick, without coming up for a breath here are20 reasons to look forward to the fall season: Time for football-any football, its all good; Yard sales, garage sales, community sales; Peanut boils; Hayrides; Cool-weather foods such as chili, soup and corn bread with local honey; Tents, sleeping bags, campfires, marshmallows and smores; Apple pie, apple cider and candy apples on a stick; Open windows; Candles flickering; Smell of cinnamon, cloves and pumpkin spice; Watching movies snuggled in soft blankets; Cozy comfy socks; Sweet potato pie baking in the oven; Leaves blowing in the wind; Scrabble and caramel corn; Hunting season run Bambi run; Laughter coming from neighbors homes; Biketoberfest; The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

Research shows, however, that early detection of this cancer is our best defense in battling it. The Michelle O Gram Foundation was created by friends and family of Michelle Blauser Standridge after her untimely death to Breast Cancer. Michelle spent countless hours before her death speaking out to other women about how important early detection is. Constantly stressing to every woman she could talk to, to be sure and get a yearly mammogram. Family and friends knew how important the message was to Michelle and they wanted to continue her work through the Michelle O Gram Foundation. The Michelle O Gram Foundation helps women who otherwise would not be able to afford a mammogram. If after having a mammogram the woman needs more tests, they will provide that as well. Just over the past few weeks women have been coming in at an astounding rate seeking help from the foundation, said Sherry Roberts, one of the founders of the organization. Some things you can do to help in the early detection of breast Cancer; as noted by the National Cancer Institute: Your doctor can check for breast cancer before you have any symptoms. During an office visit, your doctor will ask about your personal and family medical history. Youll have a physical exam. Your doctor may order one or more imaging tests, such as a mammogram. Doctors recommend that women have regular clinical breast exams and mammograms to find breast cancer early. Treatment is more likely to work well when breast cancer is detected early. Clinical Breast Exam During a clinical breast exam, your health care provider checks your breasts. You may be asked to raise your arms over your head, let them hang by your sides, or press your hands against your hips. Your health care provider looks for differences in size or shape between your breasts. The skin of your breasts is checked for a rash, dimpling or other abnormal signs. Your nipples may be squeezed to check for fluid. Using the pads of the fingers to feel for lumps, your health care provider checks your entire breast, underarm and collarbone area. A lump is generally the size of a pea before anyone can feel it. The exam is done on one side and then the other. Your health care provider checks the lymph nodes near the breast to see if they are enlarged. If you have a lump, your health care provider will feel its size, shape and texture. Your health care provider will also check to see if the lump moves easily. Benign lumps often feel different from cancerous ones. Lumps that are soft, smooth, round Early detection key biggest defense against breast cancer Beginning this week the Riverland News celebrates its 30th anniversary and while it might surprise a few folks Im actually older than the paper. But to put it in perspective, our country was still in the midst of the Cold War. We knew our enemies were the commies, or for those who prefer political correctness, the communists. President Ronald Reagan had taken office nine months prior to the launch of the Riverland News; our economy in a horrible slump and a much-maligned Democrat president voted out of office. As for me, I was engrossed with what most 7-year-old boys were obsessed with at the time. Learning how to ride a bike sans training wheels and a helmet. I cannot recall how many times I crashed the first few attempts. I just recall my dad telling me to avoid trees, curbs and parked cars and my brother and I would be fine. I had recently wrapped up my first year playing Little League in which my dreams of becoming the second coming of George Brett, then a superstar third baseman with the Kansas City Royals, were crushed by my coach. Perhaps he had a crystal ball and knew I would never develop the ability to hit a 90 mph fastball. I was a student in Mrs. Frakes first-grade class at Washington Elementary School in Atchison, Kan., hanging out during recess with my buddies Seth and Joey and numerous other classmates that to this day I remain in touch with. Much of that brings me to the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Riverland News. Sure its not 50 or even 100 but if it wasnt for some amazing folks with a vision and mission in 1981 to bring its community a community newspaper I wouldnt be up late typing this on a keypad no bigger than the palm of my hand. Seriously. Honestly, who doesnt love seeing their name in the paper unless youre a criminal or a crooked politician? Thats why we want you to be a part of the celebration.

A hard, oddly shaped lump that feels firmly attached within the breast is more likely to be cancer, but further tests are needed to diagnose the problem. Mammogram A mammogram is an X-ray picture of tissues inside the breast. Mammograms can often show a breast lump before it can be felt. They also can show a cluster of tiny specks of calcium. These specks are called microcalcifications. Lumps or specks can be from cancer, precancerous cells or other conditions. Further tests are needed to find out if abnormal cells are present. Before they have symptoms, women should get regular screening mammograms to detect breast cancer early, Women in their 40s and older should have mammograms every one or two years. Women who are younger than 40 and have risk factors for breast cancer should ask their health care provider whether to have mammograms and how often to have them. If the mammogram shows an abnormal area of the breast, your doctor may order clearer, more detailed images of that area. Doctors use diagnostic mammograms to learn more about unusual breast changes, such as a lump, pain, thickening, nipple discharge or change in breast size or shape. Diagnostic mammograms may focus on a specific area of the breast. They might involve special techniques and more views than screening mammograms. But the key to all of this is self examination and regular check ups with your doctor. Early detection is the biggest defense against breast cancer. GUEST continued from page 4

Third-grade students at Dunnellon Elementary School were spellbound Thursday morning at the school with new dictionaries given to them as a gift from ACA Construction Corporation. Reading is critical, said Todd Duffy, a representative of the company present to help hand out the dictionaries. Youre going to have a lot of work to do as you prepare for the FCAT. We believe this will help; there are a lot of words for you to learn. We encourage you to try and learn one new word a week. People who have a great vocabulary become great readers.

nellon and the surrounding area. We dont want to turn away anyone who is hungry, Cooper said. Our mission, our goal remains the same as when Annie started this years ago. It makes a difference; her goal then was to feed people, regardless of their circumstances. She would feed anybody. Cooper credited the support it does receive from area merchants as a boon to providing for families in need. He cited stores such as Walmart, Winn-Dixie, Sweetbay and The Bakery, as well as several restaurants in town. The merchants in town are a big part of this; theyve been very supportive of what we do here, he explained. Theyve all been very generous with their support. While folks continue pouring in for support on a daily basis, Cooper said, the biggest need now is for volunteers. We really need hands to help us with what we do, he explained. Because so many more people come in, we dont have as many people to help. For more information about services or how to volunteer, call 489-8021. before he has it in stock.

She said Brett was instrumental in completing and filing paperwork for theRiverland News with state officials in Tallahassee. I remember walking into Harrys office and asking him if he wanted to buy some shares, Rhodes recalled. He said yes, hed take two. He had a customer in at the time and asked how he could just write someone a check for $1,000. He just said, if Nell wants to do it, itll go. Russ James, the first-ever editor of the Riverland News, bought two shares. DeWitt designed the initial masthead used by the paper while Bill England, then the head of the Times computer system, helped to purchase and set up the computer system used at the paper. We went by the seat of our britches, really, she recalled of the inaugural edition. We were a paper built on community pride. I believed a small community needed a paper, so the folks could know what was going on, whether it was at City Hall or at the Womans Club or the Lions Club. Throughout the years, there have been several editors of the newspaper, ranging from Kathie Stewart to Michel Northsea, Rhodes daughter, to Jim Hunter to Pat Faherty. Northsea though served in a variety of positions throughout her career at the Riverland News. She was the papers first advertising sales representative and delivered papers, too. Northsea was instrumental in launching the Chamber of Commerces annual Christmas Parade, Rhodes said. Rhodes said though times have changed in the newspaper industry, she still sees the Riverland News as a vital part of the community. You definitely need to know whats going on in the community, she explained. The City Council did stupid things and it still hasnt changed.

It was pretty quiet for an event such as this magnitude. It was just the same as last year, everybody had a great time. In her second year as chairwoman of the event, she said she was calmer than last year. I just kind of knew what to expect this year, she explained. It, of course, helped that we didnt have any major problems. The volunteers were great, as well as the sponsors of the event. More than a dozen bands or artists performed at the event while several vendors were set up throughout selling food or crafts. Vaughn said that while several vendors ran out of food a year ago, that wasnt the case this year. I think they were pretty happy with business, she said. It was just as steady as a year ago. Vaughn explained final numbers and a report from this years event will be completed soon and that those who helped plan the event as well as the volunteers will take a much-needed break. Planning, she said, for the 2012 Jazz Up Dunnellon will likely begin in earnest after the annual Boomtown Days Festival in April. We constantly discuss it, she said. But we wont start doing meetings and full-fledged planning until after Boomtown. We have so many volunteers that are involved in that. We usually try to wait until after that before we really start gearing up for Jazz Up.

Chelsea Dominey Ryan Molloy DUNNELLON HIGH ATHLETES OF THE WEEKPRESENTED BY GAETANOS SUBS Tigers aim to get back on track against Rattlers For the better part of two weeks now, the Dunnellon High School football team has had to deal with the fallout of its performance against Santa Fe in a key District 5A-5 tilt. In the game, Oct. 7, the Tigers turned the ball over five times, including three in the fourth quarter of a 21-7 loss. The loss snapped Dunnellons 15-game district winning streak, putting the Tigers behind the eight ball in their bid to reach the playoffs. We left a lot of points out on the field two weeks ago, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley lamented about his teams loss to the Raiders. Its been like that in all of our losses; we didnt make the plays to win. When you put yourself in that situation, its tough. The turnovers have been a sore spot for Beasley and his team and its certainly been an area Dunnellon has focused on as it prepares for the Rattlers. However, the seventh-year head coach also realizes theres only so much the coaching staff can do to drive the point home. Its nothing weve ever done around here, he said of the turnovers. Its been difficult, so weve coached a lot harder in the past week or so. Weve put kids in some very intense practice and some game-like situations. The more we start talking DUNNELLON AT BELLEVIEW WHEN/WHERE: 7:30 p.m. at Belleview High School. RECORDS: Dunnellon 3-3 overall, 1-1 District 5A-5; Belleview 1-6, 0-2. LAST WEEK: Dunellon had its bye week; Belleview slipped past Wildwood, 10-8. PLAYERS TO WATCH: Dunnellon RB Jvonn Swoll leads the Tigers with 333 yards rushing on 54 attempts. RB Wesley Beasley, a threat in the passing attack, has 283 yards of offense from the line of scrimmage. He leads Dunnellon with seven touchdowns. In addition to that, hes converted six PATs as well as a field goal. QB Jordon Boley is 24-of-52 passing for 317 yards, six touchdowns and six interceptions. LB Malcom Ross, leads the Tigers with 67 tackles, including 38 solo stops. Fellow LB A.J. Basso is second on the team with 52 tackles. DB Mohammad Rafei leads the team with three interceptions. Belleview QB Erik Pitts is 14-for-58 passing for 200 yards. The freshman signal caller has thrown seven interceptions and no touchdowns. Hes rushed for 108 yards and two scores. RB Craig Ritchie leads the Rattlers with 340 yards rushing, despite playing in four games. RB Nelson Gay is second on the team with 159 yards rushing. JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Dunnellon looks to snap two-game slide against Belleview DHS Molloy, Dominey finish in top 3, earn spot in regional HOMOSASSA Dunnellon junior Ryan Molloy fired an 89 at the District 1A-8 boys golf tournament on Monday to qualify for next Mondays regional tournament at Golden Hills Golf & Turf Club in Ocala. It feels great to be able to move on and represent Dunnellon High School at regional, Molloy said. I feel like Im going to do well and have a chance to move on (to state). The Tigers shot a 391 and finished fifth as a team in the event at Southern Woods Golf Club. A year ago, Dunnellon finished in eighth place in the eight-team field. The Tigers should return their entire squad for the 2012 season. The Tigers performance came just days after what their coach, Roger Sibbald, called their worst performance of the season at the county championships. There, Dunnellon shot a 209 for the nine-hole tournament, which was shortened because it had to be rescheduled. I was really proud of the way the golf team responded at the district tournament, Sibbald said. We had a bad outing at the county tournament; however, we bounced back to play a respectable round and one that reflected the capabilities of our team. Crystal River (310) dominated overall as five Pirates scored lower than 80 to give their team a 39-stroke win over second place Pasco (349). Hernando also advanced as a team with a 363. Pirates senior Matt Mullarkey and Leopards sophomore Cody Montgomery tied for the lead with a pair of 75s, forcing a one-hole playoff on 18. Mullarkey lost the hole after suffering an errant drive, giving Montgomery medalist honors. Seven Rivers sophomore Adam Gage (89) and Nature Coast freshman Jacob Arnett (84) joined Molloy as the other two individual advancers. Sophomores Bryce Thalacker (94) and Michael Beach (108) and junior Kyle Smith (100) also figured in Dunnellons scoring. Tee time is 8:45 a.m. Monday Golden Hills Golf & Turf Club in Ocala. On the girls side, Chelsea Dominey will compete in the regional tournament after firing a 90 at Abby Course at St. Leos University, near Dade City. Teammate Madeline Tourne fired a 115. Im looking forward to see what next Monday brings and wouldnt be at all surprised if Ryan or Chelsea advances to the state tournament, Sibbald said.

Bowlers of the Week: Mae Johns, 121 pins over her average, and Richie Adams, 143 pins over his average. about it, the more it becomes a mind thing. Theyre just waiting for it to happen. We just need to go out and just play the game, put two hands over the ball. I think sometimes our backs try to do too much. I know thats odd to say, but theres a time to go down, youre going to get tackled. While there wont be a huge overall in personnel; Beasley and his staff will attempt to put players in spots better suited to their skill sets against Belleview, a team that just snapped a six-game winning streak with a 108 victory against Wildwood last Friday. Weve got to come out and make sure we establish some things and not turn the ball over, he stressed. Its a huge point of concern; weve got to find some guys that can hang onto the ball. Normally you should know who and what youve got, so had to go back and re-evaluate that. Its not necessarily new guys we have in place, we just moved them, to better fit their skill set. Against the Rattlers, a team Beasley described as really, really young its a matter of setting the tone from the opening kick off. We need to get a confidence boost, said Beasley, whose team has lost two straight. Obviously our defense is playing well, but its more of a confidence thing for our offense. I think its important they come out and score. I would expect them to come out and play with little chip on their shoulder; thats the way theyve practiced, theyre a little angry as well. We take a lot of pride in what we do; for some of the seniors this is it; after the end of the season, they wont ever put that helmet on again. Beasley said Belleview is much like the Tigers on offense in terms of being a grind it out type of squad. The Rattlers offense features a oneback system. Theyre really well coached on film, he said. You cant just replace experience, but were not playing very well either. They have some really, really big kids. Their quarterback is a ninth-grader. He does somethings well and at other times he does some ninth-grade things. Theyre going to try and establish the run and run inside. Theyre obviously a feature-back team; well get their best shot, thats for sure. Tigers JV falls to Celtics CRYSTAL RIVER The Dunnellon Cross Country team ran against Lecanto and Crystal River on Thursday, Oct. 13, at the Crystal River Invitational at Crystal River High School. There were about 70 runners running this 5K race. The race was run in a figure eight shape going through the woods and around the baseball field twice. Before the races started, drizzling accompanied strong gusting wind and it looked like the race would be postponed. First, Courtney Pike and Natalie Cote ran representing the Tigers. After the girls race, it started raining but it stopped after about five minutes and cleared up quite well. Then the boys were off to the races. After some confusion about the course, Victor Chicas crossed the finish line ahead of the pack with a 17:44. Chicas said, (The course) was kind of easy, but at the same time it was challenging because of the sugar sand. Also, if I hadnt gone the wrong way I would be in the 16s. Tylor Colston was the second Tiger to complete the course. Sprinting toward the finish line Colston later said, I felt like a beast. The Tigers only home meet this season is Monday, Oct. 17. Results were not available at press time. DREW RONDEAU/For the Riverland NewsDunnellons Jordan Williams looks to pick up yardage against the Trinity Catholic defense on Thursday, Oct. 13. The Tigers lost to the Celtics, 26-8. Dunnellon to host Belleview in season finale tonight What counts in sports is not the victory, but the magnificence of the struggle. Joe Paterno, Penn State head football coach The Dunnellon junior varsity football team had a struggling game Thursday, Oct. 13, against Trinity Catholic as the Tigers fell to the Celtics, 26-8, but kept their heads up. They just had more horses in their barn that had some size and speed, Dunnellon coach Archie Smith said. We messed up on our kickoff coverage, which put us behind. In the first half, we were focused and moved the ball along. We were excited and were doing our jobs, even though it took us awhile. The second half, we kept trying, but mentally we lost it a little. Both teams offensives battled back and forth in the opening quarter, but each teams defense played better as neither offense found the end zone. In the middle of the second quarter, the Celtics offense found its rhythm. On third-and-11, Dyantre Colston ran up middle and cut to the left as the Tigers forced him out of bounds. On the following play, running back James Allen took the handoff, hit the outside and scored a touchdown. The Tigers Cole Fagan blocked the ensuing point after, but Dunnellon found itself trailing, 6-0 with 5:25 remaining in the first half. It didnt take long for Trinitys offense to get back on the field as the Tigers turned the ball over on the ensuing possession, setting the Celtics up inside their own territory. Trinitys Shawn Thompson scored another touchdown as the Celtics converted a 2point conversion to a take a 14-0 lead. The Tigers wasted little time striking back. Kane Parks took the kick off from the 11 yard line, ran up middle and scoring on an 89-yard return as Brandon Smith ran in the 2-point conversion to cut Trinitys lead to 14-8. Neither team scored again before the end of the first half as the Tigers found themselves trailing at half time. The Celtics struck quickly to open the second half, as Allen returned the opening kick off of the third quarter. Trinity was unable to convert on their 2-point attempt, but extended its lead to 20-6. Dunnellons offense appeared to have an answer, moving the ball inside its own 10-yard line. However, on a fourthand-goal, Tyler Powells pass fell incomplete. Trinitys offense, buoyed by penalties on the Tigers, scored its final blow with 6:22 remaining in the second half, extending their lead to 26-8. On Dunnellons next possession, Powell kept the ball, rushing for a 15-yard pick up. But two players later, on a second-and-7, Powells pass attempt was intercepted. The Tigers defense stopped the Celtics from finding the end zone again, but Trinitys offense had already done the damage in a 26-8 victory. Hold your heads high, Smith said. We are tough and its going to be tough. For our final game next week I am looking for more physical, and to develop desire. Go into the game saying, I am going to make this tackle or going to make this touchdown. You need to get the job done and have a good attitude doing it. Belleview had size from years past, which we were able to handle. They like to go toe-totoe so be ready for it. I am looking forward to it. Its the last game of the season and I am going to try and get everybody in (the game). Dunnellon hosts Belleview at 7 p.m. today at Ned Love Field.

I sensed a growing controversy between my wife and myself. Its genesis came about because of some silly mix-up, I assure you. Usually, mixups come about because of some misunderstanding and boy, do I sure miss my understanding. I have misplaced mine for so long I honestly cannot remember when I had it last. If my memory serves me, and it has not to date, the last time I had a glimpse of my understanding, I was standing at some altar repeating the words, I do. After that, life has been a glorious blur. The faux pas between us simply was a matter of attitude. My better half took the high road and I, per usual, took the low road. The reason I take the low road is simply that when I fall, and falling for me is inevitable, I do not have far to plummet. Regrettably, this past week we experienced a clash of attitudes. I can sum up my attitude in life quite nicely: Never do today what can be put off until tomorrow. Who knows? I may forget the whole thing by then, something I am renowned for around the parsonage, if you know what I mean. On the other hand, my lifes companion firmly believes in doing things ahead of time. For instance, by the end of August all her Christmas shopping is finished, wrapped and stored in the garage waiting for the Christmas tree. She has a wonderful knack for planning. What I want to know is how does she know if I am going to be naughty or nice? Usually, I give in to my better half. After all, that is what a great marriage is all about; give and take. As a dutiful husband, I take everything she gives me. This time, however, an important principle was at stake. Some things in life are worth fighting for and this represented one of those times. For years, I have suffered from a condition known as Afternoon Siesta Syndrome. Each afternoon I stretch out for an hour of rest. In that hour, I meditate on some of the more important issues of life. I cannot tell you how many significant problems I have resolved during my daily afternoon forty winks. I say I cant tell you not because I dont want to, but when aroused from my snooze I cant remember the solution. All I know is that somewhere in the recesses of my mind are wonderful resolutions to some of the most intricate problems facing our world today. In this regard, I do not know how often my wife has said to me, You need to see a psychiatrist. This leads me to the subject of our difference this past week. I am a firm believer in the Art of Casual Loafing. Loafing gets such a bad rap because so many amateurs try their hand at it. Let me say right here that loafing is definitely not for the inexperienced. A level of skill and expertise that only comes from diligent practice. Personally, I have invested over 50 years in the Art of Casual Loafing, which qualifies me as some sort of an expert on the subject. I am a proud, card-carrying member of the ACL union. I could have been elected president but we have not got around to elections yet. Many, and when I say many, I am especially including my companion, take loafing as something that comes rather easy. Oh, quite contraire, Mon Frre.

My spouse thinks loafing is a tragic waste of time. She thinks things need doing in a timely fashion, like right now. The garbage must be taken out right now. The backyard needs mowing right now. The groceries in the back of the car need brought in right now. A person can take this right now business too far, if you ask me. I like to take things a little more casual than that. This right now hangup can create some serious stress in relationships; especially between hers and mine. Theres no time like the present, my wife often tells me with a look in her eye defying me not to do what she just requested. To her, right now is very important. When I want to resolve a difficulty, I resort to the Bible. This was no exception. Much to my amazement, the word now occurs in the Bible 1,356 times, which is rather impressive. I never thought of it before. What I discovered startled me. I had to admit that in certain things my dear wife is correct. Some things must be done right now. Two Bible verses emphasize the importance of right now. In the book of Isaiah, Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool (Isaiah 1:18 KJV). Then, in the New Testament behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2 KJV). Right now is the best time to address your relationship with Jesus Christ.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

The Honor Flight Network transports WWII Veterans to Washington, D.C., to see their Memorial for which they waited more than 60 years. Spruce Creek Preserve will have seven WWII Veterans on the Oct. 27 Mission No. 4. It all began in May with a media article requesting Escorts for the June Ocala Honor Flight. Dee Winey, SCP resident, escorted on the June 14 Honor Flight and experienced the WWII Memorial with 104 Veterans and their escorts. This was such a moving experience she approached the Spruce Creek Preserve Military Club to support the October Mission and get as many of our resident WWII Veterans signed up for the Mission as possible. The project turned into a communitywide event including direct donations from residents, businesses and friends along with displays and donations accepted at the State Road 200 Walmart and Reds Restaurant. The Preserve Golf Club hosted a special event for Ocala Honor Flight. The finale was Canteen Night at the Preserve with free desserts followed by live music, entertainment and a Chinese raffle/auction of more than 25 items donated by our resident artists and businesses along the S.R. 200 corridor. Special to the Riverland NewsRepresenting Ocala Honor Flight, from left, are: Red Zell, April Adams, Trey Adams; representing Spruce Creek Preserve Dee Winey, Jean Isabelle, Commander of Spruce Creek Preserve Military Club. Special to Riverland News Sunday Sampler to continue The Sunday Sampler is a celebration of music sponsored by the Will McLean Foundation, which has as one of its major functions the preserving of Florida history through music. The name comes from the fact that it is performed on the second Sunday monthly and is a sampler of the talented artists who will be performing at the Will McLean Festival March 9 to 11, 2012, at the Sertoma Youth Ranch in Brooksville. Performances are at 2:30 p.m. at the Historic Dunnellon Depot, 12061 S. Williams St., Dunnellon. Performances last about two hours with a refreshment break. A donation to the Foundation of $10 is accepted at the door. This is the current lineup of artists. The schedule with websites where one may find out more about the performers follows: Nov. 13: Amy Carol Webb The Song Weaver, is an award winning song writer who electrifies a stage with songs that run the gamut from hysterically funny to tear producing lyrics performed on her band of guitars, each of which is named and chosen for the song. On the web: www.amycarolwebb.com. Jan. 8, 2012: Carly Bak and Garrison Doles Bak grew up in South Dakota cow country, now lives on the Withlacoochee River and has channeled her infatuation with nature, music and folklore into her award winning songs that she performs with feeling. On the web: www.carlybak.com Garrison says he is a broken shard of sea glass that washed up on the beach shattered and jagged and tossed in the ocean; and his award winning original songs reflect that hard living, hard drinking period of his life as his stage presence reflects his theatrical calling expressed in Orlandos Theatre Downtown, which he co-founded. On the web: www.garrisondoles.com Feb. 14, 2012: Mindy Simmons Floridas Sweetheart, is a consummate performer of original songs as well as classic blues, jazz and folk music, including a terrific tribute program to the late, great Miss Peggy Lee. On th web: www.mindysimmons.comAll of these artists are song writers and, some of them, as well as other performers at the Will McLean Festival got their break by entering the Best New Florida Song writing contest.

Christmas cactus is a popular plant, and now is the time to start planning if you want blooms at the right time. It is the shorter day lengths, and cooler temperatures that will begin the plants flowering process, similar to poinsettias and chrysanthemums. If the plants are indoors, exposed to artificial lights the plant may not set the buds we want. Natural light will help the plant to do this naturally. Placing the indoor plant in a dark cupboard from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. should trick the plant into setting bud. This is going to be a sixweek project, with blooms appearing in 10 weeks. My math means if you start now you should have blooms on Christmas day. In the garden, its time to plant strawberries. A bed can be prepared and used, or containers are great for this fruit. Dont forget to water daily, while the plants establish themselves. Lawns will begin to loose the color as the weather cools. If you want to keep a green lawn, overseed with annual ryegrass. Dont mow to low grass should be from 2.5 inches (Dwarf St. Augustine) to 4 inches (Bahia or St. Augustine). Lilly, and agapanthus bulbs can be planted for next spring color. Vegetables such as Brussels, beets, cabbage, cauliflower and onions should now be planted. Either directly sown, or in pots for seedling transplanting. Watering until established is important, but not too much to avoid damping off. The giant African snail is still being found in quantity in the south, so keeping prudent when visiting or receiving visitors is a must. The snail can consume your garden causing damage, but most importantly can pose a health risk to people. The link here entnemdept.ufl.edu/hodges/ Florida2011/Skelley.pdf will take you to a presentation on the State of Florida plant division site. Enjoy the cooler weather, but remember there is still plenty to do in the garden.Tracy Jenner, the Riverland Gardener, can be reached at tracyjenner@aol.com.

Start me up: Riverland News celebrates 30th anniversary Thirty years ago, the Dunnellon Press shut its doors, leaving the community without a newspaper to call its own. So with a vision in mind to launch a new product and provide Dunnellon with a community newspaper, Nell Rhodes went to work. The long time resident and business owner started selling shares at $250 apiece to folks throughout the community. She allowed anyone to buy a share, but no one could have more than two. Rhodes needed to raise $25,000 to get the product off the ground. In no time at all she raised the $25,000, and with it came the start of the Riverland News. Very few people turn us down, she said, noting there were 50 shareholders when the paper launched in 1981. I always had faith wed get it down. And 30 years later, the Riverland News is still here, though under the ownership of Landmark Community Newspapers. In 1983, the Riverland News sold to Republic Newspapers. Each shareholder received $2,700 for the original investment in the newspaper. A few years later and Landmark purchased the Riverland News. Todays edition marks the start of the 30th anniversary of the newspaper. She said there were plenty of other players involved in launching the Riverland News; from former attorney Bo Brett Nell Rhodes had vision, saw need for community newspaper Annie, or anyone else, get your guns Central Florida Armory open for business The second amendment of the United States Bill of Rights states U.S. citizens have the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. And as Joe Brown sees it, hes more than happy to provide the right firearm to those who are seeking to do just that. Brown knows weapons. Hes a former Levy County Sheriffs Office deputy for nine years in the 1990s. He also spent the past nine years working for a private contractor overseas, including eight years in Iraq. A few months ago, he opened Central Florida Armory at 12009 S. Williams St. He said he specializes in all types of firearms as well as ammunition. The business is open from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Right now, handguns are very popular, he said, explaining that despite the economy more folks are purchasing weapons as a source of home protection. For those not familiar with guns, Im certainly going to point out the advantages of a particular weapon. For example, he said, if youre not familiar with weapons, but want to purchase a handgun, he would likley try to persuade those less experienced folks to opt for a revolver. Youll find theyre less complicated, he explained. He carries both new and used weapons in his store; and he also sells weapons via consignment. Brown said most folks are purchasing used weapons because of their affordability. Its not really about the make or model, he explained. However, for those wanting a specific make, model or caliber of weapon, Brown said he can get it. But it might take a day or two beFeeding frenzy If you build it, they will come. The Voice, Field of DreamsTheyve been coming for the past 35 years, ever since one woman in the community realized a need to provide food to those less fortunate. Today, theyre still coming, and in much larger numbers. Within the coming weeks, officials at the Annie W. Johnson Family & Service Center anticipate stocking the shelves in their newest addition, a 512square-foot facility thats been in the works for the past three years. Part of the cost of the facility is being covered by a $14,000 grant obtained from United Way of Marion County, while the remainder of the tab will be picked up by the proceeds the agency makes through its Annie W. Johnson Thrift Shop, which changed locations more than a year ago and has been thriving. Its been a blessing, Larry Cooper, executive director, said of the new location. While there were plenty of hurdles to clear during that time, officials are eagerly looking toward the future. Currently, the Annie W. Johnson Center provides services to both Marion and Citrus counties. Officials have seen an increase in need throughout the first nine months of 2011 and expect that trend to rise in the last quarter of 2011 as well as in 2012, especially with Angel Food ministries shutting down its program. Through the first nine months this year, more than 400,000 pounds of food has been provided to needy families. In 2010, the agency distributed 300,000 pounds. Of the 400,000 pounds given to individuals and families this year, more than 200,000 have been allocated to families in Marion County. There are 33 agencies throughout Marion County providing services to more than 3,000 people, not including seniors. Annie Johnsons alone serviced slightly more than a 1,000, or one-third of those who needed assistance in the past month alone. I think its a testament to what they do here, Mayor Fred Ward, a board member, said. Weve got 32 other agencies serving 2,000 people and here weve got one agency serving a third of the people. Because they serve so many people and specific programs require certain requirements, officials have partnered with Feeding America and recently purchased a truck to pick up supplies from different businesses throughout DunJEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsBob Coomer, Ronny Crawford and Clay Wahley, volunteers with the Annie W.

From what everybody says, we did great, said Martha Vaughn, noting the Chamber sold out of cups, beer and wine during the nights festivities that stretched across East and West Pennsylvania Avenue, throughout the Historic District and into Ernie Mills Park. Were pretty sure it was equal to last year just based on what was sold, as far as the volume that was going on, she added.

I ts that time of year again open season is right around the corner for the Medicare Part D prescription drug plan. Hunting down the best plan for you is no game. Newly eligible Medicare beneficiaries, and current beneficiaries who are considering changes to their Medicare Part D plan, should mark their calendars for Oct. 15. The open season will run from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7. The Medicare Part D prescription drug program is available to all Medicare beneficiaries to help with the costs of medications. Joining a Medicare prescription drug plan is voluntary, and participants pay an additional monthly premium for the coverage. While all Medicare beneficiaries can participate in the prescription drug program, some people with limited income and resources also are eligible for extra help to pay for monthly premiums, annual deductibles, and prescription copayments. The extra help is worth about $4,000 a year. To figure out whether you are eligible for the extra help, Social Security needs to know your income and the value of any savings, investments and real estate (other than the home you live in). To qualify, you must be receiving Medicare and have: Income not over $16,335 for an individual or $22,065 for a married couple living together. Even if your annual income is higher, you still may be able to get some help with monthly premiums, annual deductibles, and prescription co-payments. Some examples where your income may be higher include if you or your spouse: Support other family members who live with you; Have earnings from work; or Live in Alaska or Hawaii; and Resources not more than $12,640 for an individual or $25,260 for a married couple living together. Resources include such things as bank accounts, stocks and bonds. We do not count your house or car as resources. You can complete an easy-to-use online application for extra help at www.socialsecurity.gov. Go to the Medicare tab on the top of the page. Then go to Apply For Extra Help With Medicare Prescription Plan Costs. To apply for the extra help by phone or have an application mailed to you, call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1800-325-0778) and ask for the Application for Extra Help with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs (SSA1020). If you would like more information about the Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Program itself, visit www.medicare.gov or call 800-MEDICARE (800-633-4227; TTY 877486-2048). So this open season (Oct. 15 to Dec. 7), after you track down the perfect prescription drug plan for you, hunt for something that could put about $4,000 in your pocket bag the best Medicare prescription drug plan for you and see if you qualify for the Extra Help through Social Security.

One pamphlet listed ways to contact legislators on the national levels; another gave Websites for contacting state officials. In addition, there was information about how to voice opinions through newspapers, on the phone, through the mail and by e-mail, both locally and nationally. Present on Saturday were Harriett Jones of Williston, Andrea Bickel of Ocala and Babs Hale and Drollene Brown of Morriston, part of a group of 12 that met in August to consider the topic, Rebuilding the American Dream. Saturdays event was borne of that meeting and its ensuing discussions among group members. Nuchnapa Crowther and her 7-year-old daughter came early to thank the group for its presence. Crowther, a student nurse who immigrated to Citrus Springs from Thailand, was gladdened to find ways to express her opinion. She said she was beginning to think she had left one Third-World country only to land in one that was spiraling down to the same fate. Crowthers daughter brought a sign she had made, thanking the group for speaking up for her generation. Others from Marion County and beyond stopped to talk, many of them deciding to join the group. Dunnellon residents Brenda Underwood and Joan Duggins joined the conversation, as did Ocala residents Carl Hill, Jim Carrell and Andrea Bikel Coming from outlying areas were Vicky Iozzia of Crystal River, Maralyn Boysen of Inverness and Elena Werksman of Hernando. Several stopped by without offering their cities of residence. Some of them were Blake Smith, Terry Blaes, Ron Brekken, and Joe and Nancy Valenchis. Besides offering methods for voicing opinions, CEE group members spoke with patrons about various issues and legislation that is currently up for vote. Those with internet access were given information on quickly and easily finding this information through the Website PopVox. Topics of conversation included getting America back to work, saving our Postal Service, cleaning up our springs, and repairing schools such as North Marion High, Sparr and Anthony Elementary schools. CEE is dedicated to informing the public about the importance of participating in the democratic process, offering a summary of significant issues and providing tools for engagement.

The Veterans who saved the world during World War II will make the fourth Honor Flight from Ocala to Washington, D.C., to visit the World War II Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery. On Thursday, Oct. 27, the Vets will leave Ocala Airport on a chartered plane for a full day of remembrance and reflection. In honor of this occasion, a send off and welcome home party is being planned. The send off party will be at 7 a.m. at the airport. That night, there will be the welcome home ceremony at 8 p.m. Volunteers are needed. For more information, contact Ocala Honor Flight at 352-351-9341. The Dunnellon Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Those wishing to can drop off their unwanted medications from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29, at the Dunnellon Police Department at 12014 S. Williams St.. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. Last April, Americans turned in 376,593 pounds 188 tons of prescription drugs at nearly 5,400 sites operated by the DEA and more than 3,000 state and local law enforcement partners. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trashboth pose potential safety and health hazards.

There isnt a Halloween costume clever enough to hide an impaired driver whos made the poor decision to get behind the wheel, Sgt. Jacob Gonzalez said. Whether youve had one too many or way too many it is just not worth the risk. Remember, Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving. Nighttime is an especially dangerous time to be on the road. But Halloween night is one of the deadliest nights of the year for impaired drivers. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 48 percent of all highway fatalities across the nation on Halloween night (6 p.m. Oct. 31 to 5:59 a.m. Nov. 1) in 2009 involved a driver or a motorcycle rider with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 grams per deciliter or higher, which is illegal in every state. The scariest parts of Halloween arent the spooky costumes and scary pranks, said Sgt. Gonzalez. Its the fact that too often impaired drivers dont plan ahead and end up making the roads scarier than a horror show. Dunnellon Police Department recommends these simple tips for a safe Halloween: Plan a safe way home before the festivities begin. Before drinking, designate a sober driver. If youre impaired, take a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation. If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, dont hesitate to contact local law enforcement. And remember, Friends Dont Let Friends Drive Drunk. If you know someone who is about to drive or ride while impaired, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely. Dunnellon Police Department will conduct a DUI Checkpoint from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 29, in the 20400 block of East Pennsylvania Avenue and Saturation Patrols from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday, Oct. 28, and Monday, Oct. 31. For more information, contact Sgt. Gonzalez at 352-4658510 or e-mail jgonzalez@ dunnellonpd.org.

River views Mayor wrong in calling county a municipalityAt the Dunnellon City Council meeting on Sept. 26, Mayor Fred Ward called Marion County a municipality and said, as such, it was exempt from the Dunnellon Tree Ordinance. This was in reference to the proposed county plan to remove a large number of trees within the city to construct a stormwater retention pond. He repeated this remark at the joint County Commission/City Council meeting Oct. 10. Wrong. A county is not a municipality and the Dunnellon Tree Ordinance makes no exemption for the county to remove a large number of trees within the city. To the contrary, the ordinance is very specific in requiring the issuance of a tree removal permit based on a tree survey and a removal and replacement plan being submitted to the city for approval. Burt Eno, PhD Dunnellon Horizon of Hope Luncheon a great success The fifth annual Horizon of Hope Luncheon was Oct. 8 at the Rainbow Springs Golf and Country Club. Our benefits were above and beyond our greatest expectations. Once again, our community came together and supported the Michelle -O-Gram and the American Cancer Society in a most magnificent way. For that, we say thank you. Several months ago, we put out a request for designer purses to use in the Chinese auction, live auction and as table centerpieces. We received more purses than one could imagine! Local businesses came forward with donations of gift certificates for a huge variety of services. Each purse was stuffed with a lottery ticket, at least $20 in gift certificates and a lot of other donated goodies. The auctioneer, Deana Sullivan, of Newberry, did what it took to average $200 for each of the 26 live auction purses. Geri Gibbs, Turner House Florist, created gorgeous centerpieces for each and every table using purses and her creative designs to make one-of-akind decorations. The Rainbow Springs Golf and Country Club was most accommodating. Repeat Boutiques Dana Brown presented a fashion show to rivaled by any department store. The fashions, and the models, were presented in the finest style and looked like professionals. Ms. Julie Mancini from Dunnellon High School arranged for many of her students to model. All the models are to be commended on their willingness and desire to serve their community. Brittany Lakhani, Miss Gainesville Teen USA, modeled and made us all proud of her, too.

Not only do we have one, but its probably our best time of the year. Theres definitely a notable change in the air right now. OK, our leaves dont turn colors, but the dog days of summer are over. Now dont get me wrong, I love the summertime but I look forward to this change every year as Im sure many of you do, too. We have covered our pool for the season and although thats a sad sight, there is so much to look forward to. Family activities will now change from swimming and kayaking to a softball game in the yard or just throwing a Frisbee around or playing board games while eating a big bowl of chili. Yep, with fall comes a new energy; a desire to be outdoors with many things to do. October has bright cloudless skies full of sunshine. The kind of skies you could only dream about in the summertime when youre getting ready to make the four-hour trip down the Rainbow River and the ominous black sky is looming ahead. Its time to open the windows and let the cool breeze blow through the house. Smell the crisp, fresh air and the autumn leaves. Take a walk in the woods or go for a bicycle ride. Food will change from burgers and dogs to baked ham and a big pan of lasagna. Have you been to the Pickin Patch on Robinson Loop yet? If not, you have to go, it will put a smile on your face. Kids of all ages climbing hay bales and soaring through the air on tire swings hung on huge oak trees. And I havent even mentioned the pumpkins yet; so many pumpkins in all different sizes. Soon therell be pumpkins carved, roasted pumpkin seeds, pumpkin pie, thick pumpkin milkshakes and frothy pumpkin-spiced latts. Have I gotten your attention? Theres nothing like a Fall Festival. Can you smell the cotton candy and funnel cakes? Maybe I like fall so much because it brings out the kid in all of us. OK, real quick, without coming up for a breath here are20 reasons to look forward to the fall season: Time for football-any football, its all good; Yard sales, garage sales, community sales; Peanut boils; Hayrides; Cool-weather foods such as chili, soup and corn bread with local honey; Tents, sleeping bags, campfires, marshmallows and smores; Apple pie, apple cider and candy apples on a stick; Open windows; Candles flickering; Smell of cinnamon, cloves and pumpkin spice; Watching movies snuggled in soft blankets; Cozy comfy socks; Sweet potato pie baking in the oven; Leaves blowing in the wind; Scrabble and caramel corn; Hunting season run Bambi run; Laughter coming from neighbors homes; Biketoberfest; The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

Research shows, however, that early detection of this cancer is our best defense in battling it. The Michelle O Gram Foundation was created by friends and family of Michelle Blauser Standridge after her untimely death to Breast Cancer. Michelle spent countless hours before her death speaking out to other women about how important early detection is. Constantly stressing to every woman she could talk to, to be sure and get a yearly mammogram. Family and friends knew how important the message was to Michelle and they wanted to continue her work through the Michelle O Gram Foundation. The Michelle O Gram Foundation helps women who otherwise would not be able to afford a mammogram. If after having a mammogram the woman needs more tests, they will provide that as well. Just over the past few weeks women have been coming in at an astounding rate seeking help from the foundation, said Sherry Roberts, one of the founders of the organization. Some things you can do to help in the early detection of breast Cancer; as noted by the National Cancer Institute: Your doctor can check for breast cancer before you have any symptoms. During an office visit, your doctor will ask about your personal and family medical history. Youll have a physical exam. Your doctor may order one or more imaging tests, such as a mammogram. Doctors recommend that women have regular clinical breast exams and mammograms to find breast cancer early. Treatment is more likely to work well when breast cancer is detected early. Clinical Breast Exam During a clinical breast exam, your health care provider checks your breasts. You may be asked to raise your arms over your head, let them hang by your sides, or press your hands against your hips. Your health care provider looks for differences in size or shape between your breasts. The skin of your breasts is checked for a rash, dimpling or other abnormal signs. Your nipples may be squeezed to check for fluid. Using the pads of the fingers to feel for lumps, your health care provider checks your entire breast, underarm and collarbone area. A lump is generally the size of a pea before anyone can feel it. The exam is done on one side and then the other. Your health care provider checks the lymph nodes near the breast to see if they are enlarged. If you have a lump, your health care provider will feel its size, shape and texture. Your health care provider will also check to see if the lump moves easily. Benign lumps often feel different from cancerous ones. Lumps that are soft, smooth, round Early detection key biggest defense against breast cancer B eginning this week the Riverland News celebrates its 30th anniversary and while it might surprise a few folks Im actually older than the paper. But to put it in perspective, our country was still in the midst of the Cold War. We knew our enemies were the commies, or for those who prefer political correctness, the communists. President Ronald Reagan had taken office nine months prior to the launch of the Riverland News; our economy in a horrible slump and a much-maligned Democrat president voted out of office. As for me, I was engrossed with what most 7-year-old boys were obsessed with at the time. Learning how to ride a bike sans training wheels and a helmet. I cannot recall how many times I crashed the first few attempts. I just recall my dad telling me to avoid trees, curbs and parked cars and my brother and I would be fine. I had recently wrapped up my first year playing Little League in which my dreams of becoming the second coming of George Brett, then a superstar third baseman with the Kansas City Royals, were crushed by my coach. Perhaps he had a crystal ball and knew I would never develop the ability to hit a 90 mph fastball. I was a student in Mrs. Frakes first-grade class at Washington Elementary School in Atchison, Kan., hanging out during recess with my buddies Seth and Joey and numerous other classmates that to this day I remain in touch with. Much of that brings me to the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Riverland News. Sure its not 50 or even 100 but if it wasnt for some amazing folks with a vision and mission in 1981 to bring its community a community newspaper I wouldnt be up late typing this on a keypad no bigger than the palm of my hand. Seriously. Honestly, who doesnt love seeing their name in the paper unless youre a criminal or a crooked politician? Thats why we want you to be a part of the celebration. In the past 30 years have you appeared in the Riverland News? Did you keep the newspaper clipping to add to your scrapbook? If so, wed like you to share your story with our readers. As a matter of fact if you still have that clipping wed love to take a picture of you with it and include a short piece about how you had your 15 minutes of fame. Email me at editor@riverland news.com and share your story and schedule a time for a photo opportunity for a look back at the past 30 years in Dunnellon in a new segment we can call The Riverland News Remembers. Lets make the next 30 years just as memorable. Audry Beem See JERSEY GIRL page 5 Jeff Bryan See GUEST page 5 See LETTERS page 5

Sherry Roberts and the Michelle -O-Gram FoundationThank you for supporting Relay for Life I would like to thank everyone who stopped by our booths during Jazz Up Dunnellon Festival on Saturday, Oct. 15, and supported the Special Olympics and the Piggy Bankers/City of Dunnellon Relay for Life Team We had so many visitors that came to our booth and thanked us for supporting both organizations. We had the opportunity to provide information and awareness to the citizens regarding our involvement in each event. We were met with so many warm comments regarding the efforts put forth by officers and volunteers. We will continue to raise funds for these organizations throughout the year, and need help from our community. The events and fundraisers we hold are specific to each organization. The Relay for Life team Team Piggy Bankers/City of Dunnellon will be in honor of Lori Shettleroe, our dear friend and co-worker.

A hard, oddly shaped lump that feels firmly attached within the breast is more likely to be cancer, but further tests are needed to diagnose the problem. Mammogram A mammogram is an X-ray picture of tissues inside the breast. Mammograms can often show a breast lump before it can be felt. They also can show a cluster of tiny specks of calcium. These specks are called microcalcifications. Lumps or specks can be from cancer, precancerous cells or other conditions. Further tests are needed to find out if abnormal cells are present. Before they have symptoms, women should get regular screening mammograms to detect breast cancer early, Women in their 40s and older should have mammograms every one or two years. Women who are younger than 40 and have risk factors for breast cancer should ask their health care provider whether to have mammograms and how often to have them. If the mammogram shows an abnormal area of the breast, your doctor may order clearer, more detailed images of that area. Doctors use diagnostic mammograms to learn more about unusual breast changes, such as a lump, pain, thickening, nipple discharge or change in breast size or shape. Diagnostic mammograms may focus on a specific area of the breast. They might involve special techniques and more views than screening mammograms. But the key to all of this is self examination and regular check ups with your doctor. Early detection is the biggest defense against breast cancer. GUEST continued from page 4

It makes a difference; her goal then was to feed people, regardless of their circumstances. She would feed anybody. Cooper credited the support it does receive from area merchants as a boon to providing for families in need. He cited stores such as Walmart, Winn-Dixie, Sweetbay and The Bakery, as well as several restaurants in town. The merchants in town are a big part of this; theyve been very supportive of what we do here, he explained. Theyve all been very generous with their support. While folks continue pouring in for support on a daily basis, Cooper said, the biggest need now is for volunteers. We really need hands to help us with what we do, he explained. Because so many more people come in, we dont have as many people to help. For more information about services or how to volunteer, call 489-8021. before he has it in stock. The same goes for ammunition as well, especially for those seeking black powder. Brown said business has been steady since he opened and expects business to increase as hunting season comes along.

We went by the seat of our britches, really, she recalled of the inaugural edition. We were a paper built on community pride. I believed a small community needed a paper, so the folks could know what was going on, whether it was at City Hall or at the Womans Club or the Lions Club. Throughout the years, there have been several editors of the newspaper, ranging from Kathie Stewart to Michel Northsea, Rhodes daughter, to Jim Hunter to Pat Faherty. Northsea though served in a variety of positions throughout her career at the Riverland News She was the papers first advertising sales representative and delivered papers, too. Northsea was instrumental in launching the Chamber of Commerces annual Christmas Parade, Rhodes said. Rhodes said though times have changed in the newspaper industry, she still sees the Riverland News as a vital part of the community. You definitely need to know whats going on in the community, she explained. The City Council did stupid things and it still hasnt changed.

It was pretty quiet for an event such as this magnitude. It was just the same as last year, everybody had a great time. In her second year as chairwoman of the event, she said she was calmer than last year. I just kind of knew what to expect this year, she explained. It, of course, helped that we didnt have any major problems. The volunteers were great, as well as the sponsors of the event. More than a dozen bands or artists performed at the event while several vendors were set up throughout selling food or crafts. Vaughn said that while several vendors ran out of food a year ago, that wasnt the case this year. I think they were pretty happy with business, she said. It was just as steady as a year ago. Vaughn explained final numbers and a report from this years event will be completed soon and that those who helped plan the event as well as the volunteers will take a much-needed break. Planning, she said, for the 2012 Jazz Up Dunnellon will likely begin in earnest after the annual Boomtown Days Festival in April. We constantly discuss it, she said. But we wont start doing meetings and full-fledged planning until after Boomtown. We have so many volunteers that are involved in that. We usually try to wait until after that before we really start gearing up for Jazz Up.

As a team, the Tigers finished fifth, three spots higher than a year ago. The regional tournament is Monday at Golden Hills Golf & Turf Club in Ocala.

The recently crowned Homecoming Queen also earned all-county honors, placing seventh at the county meet with a 52. Chelsea Dominey Ryan Molloy DUNNELLON HIGH ATHLETES OF THE WEEK PRESENTED BY GAETANOS SUBS Tigers aim to get back on track against Rattlers For the better part of two weeks now, the Dunnellon High School football team has had to deal with the fallout of its performance against Santa Fe in a key District 5A-5 tilt. In the game, Oct. 7, the Tigers turned the ball over five times, including three in the fourth quarter of a 21-7 loss. The loss snapped Dunnellons 15-game district winning streak, putting the Tigers behind the eight ball in their bid to reach the playoffs. We left a lot of points out on the field two weeks ago, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley lamented about his teams loss to the Raiders. Its been like that in all of our losses; we didnt make the plays to win. When you put yourself in that situation, its tough. The turnovers have been a sore spot for Beasley and his team and its certainly been an area Dunnellon has focused on as it prepares for the Rattlers. However, the seventh-year head coach also realizes theres only so much the coaching staff can do to drive the point home. Its nothing weve ever done around here, he said of the turnovers. Its been difficult, so weve coached a lot harder in the past week or so. Weve put kids in some very intense practice and some game-like situations. The more we start talking DUNNELLON AT BELLEVIEW WHEN/WHERE: 7:30 p.m. at Belleview High School. RECORDS: Dunnellon 3-3 overall, 1-1 District 5A-5; Belleview 1-6, 0-2. LAST WEEK: Dunellon had its bye week; Belleview slipped past Wildwood, 10-8. PLAYERS TO WATCH: Dunnellon RB Jvonn Swoll leads the Tigers with 333 yards rushing on 54 attempts. RB Wesley Beasley a threat in the passing attack, has 283 yards of offense from the line of scrimmage. He leads Dunnellon with seven touchdowns. In addition to that, hes converted six PATs as well as a field goal. QB Jordon Boley is 24-of-52 passing for 317 yards, six touchdowns and six interceptions. LB Malcom Ross leads the Tigers with 67 tackles, including 38 solo stops. Fellow LB A.J. Basso is second on the team with 52 tackles. DB Mohammad Rafei leads the team with three interceptions. Belleview QB Erik Pitts is 14-for-58 passing for 200 yards. The freshman signal caller has thrown seven interceptions and no touchdowns. Hes rushed for 108 yards and two scores. RB Craig Ritchie leads the Rattlers with 340 yards rushing, despite playing in four games. RB Nelson Gay is second on the team with 159 yards rushing. JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Dunnellon looks to snap two-game slide against Belleview DHS Molloy, Dominey finish in top 3, earn spot in regional HOMOSASSA Dunnellon junior Ryan Molloy fired an 89 at the District 1A-8 boys golf tournament on Monday to qualify for next Mondays regional tournament at Golden Hills Golf & Turf Club in Ocala. It feels great to be able to move on and represent Dunnellon High School at regional, Molloy said. I feel like Im going to do well and have a chance to move on (to state). The Tigers shot a 391 and finished fifth as a team in the event at Southern Woods Golf Club. A year ago, Dunnellon finished in eighth place in the eight-team field. The Tigers should return their entire squad for the 2012 season. The Tigers performance came just days after what their coach, Roger Sibbald, called their worst performance of the season at the county championships. There, Dunnellon shot a 209 for the nine-hole tournament, which was shortened because it had to be rescheduled. I was really proud of the way the golf team responded at the district tournament, Sibbald said. We had a bad outing at the county tournament; however, we bounced back to play a respectable round and one that reflected the capabilities of our team. Crystal River (310) dominated overall as five Pirates scored lower than 80 to give their team a 39-stroke win over second place Pasco (349). Hernando also advanced as a team with a 363. Pirates senior Matt Mullarkey and Leopards sophomore Cody Montgomery tied for the lead with a pair of 75s, forcing a one-hole playoff on 18. Mullarkey lost the hole after suffering an errant drive, giving Montgomery medalist honors. Seven Rivers sophomore Adam Gage (89) and Nature Coast freshman Jacob Arnett (84) joined Molloy as the other two individual advancers. Sophomores Bryce Thalacker (94) and Michael Beach (108) and junior Kyle Smith (100) also figured in Dunnellons scoring. Tee time is 8:45 a.m. Monday Golden Hills Golf & Turf Club in Ocala. On the girls side, Chelsea Dominey will compete in the regional tournament after firing a 90 at Abby Course at St. Leos University, near Dade City. Teammate Madeline Tourne fired a 115. Im looking forward to see what next Monday brings and wouldnt be at all surprised if Ryan or Chelsea advances to the state tournament, Sibbald said.

Bowlers of the Week: Mae Johns, 121 pins over her average, and Richie Adams, 143 pins over his average. about it, the more it becomes a mind thing. Theyre just waiting for it to happen. We just need to go out and just play the game, put two hands over the ball. I think sometimes our backs try to do too much. I know thats odd to say, but theres a time to go down, youre going to get tackled. While there wont be a huge overall in personnel; Beasley and his staff will attempt to put players in spots better suited to their skill sets against Belleview, a team that just snapped a six-game winning streak with a 108 victory against Wildwood last Friday. Weve got to come out and make sure we establish some things and not turn the ball over, he stressed. Its a huge point of concern; weve got to find some guys that can hang onto the ball. Normally you should know who and what youve got, so had to go back and re-evaluate that. Its not necessarily new guys we have in place, we just moved them, to better fit their skill set. Against the Rattlers, a team Beasley described as really, really young its a matter of setting the tone from the opening kick off. We need to get a confidence boost, said Beasley, whose team has lost two straight. Obviously our defense is playing well, but its more of a confidence thing for our offense. I think its important they come out and score. I would expect them to come out and play with little chip on their shoulder; thats the way theyve practiced, theyre a little angry as well. We take a lot of pride in what we do; for some of the seniors this is it; after the end of the season, they wont ever put that helmet on again. Beasley said Belleview is much like the Tigers on offense in terms of being a grind it out type of squad. The Rattlers offense features a oneback system. Theyre really well coached on film, he said. You cant just replace experience, but were not playing very well either. They have some really, really big kids. Their quarterback is a ninth-grader. He does somethings well and at other times he does some ninth-grade things. Theyre going to try and establish the run and run inside. Theyre obviously a feature-back team; well get their best shot, thats for sure. Tigers JV falls to Celtics CRYSTAL RIVER The Dunnellon Cross Country team ran against Lecanto and Crystal River on Thursday, Oct. 13, at the Crystal River Invitational at Crystal River High School. There were about 70 runners running this 5K race. The race was run in a figure eight shape going through the woods and around the baseball field twice. Before the races started, drizzling accompanied strong gusting wind and it looked like the race would be postponed. First, Courtney Pike and Natalie Cote ran representing the Tigers. After the girls race, it started raining but it stopped after about five minutes and cleared up quite well. Then the boys were off to the races. After some confusion about the course, Victor Chicas crossed the finish line ahead of the pack with a 17:44. Chicas said, (The course) was kind of easy, but at the same time it was challenging because of the sugar sand. Also, if I hadnt gone the wrong way I would be in the 16s. Tylor Colston was the second Tiger to complete the course. Sprinting toward the finish line Colston later said, I felt like a beast. The Tigers only home meet this season is Monday, Oct. 17. Results were not available at press time. DREW RONDEAU/For the Riverland NewsDunnellons Jordan Williams looks to pick up yardage against the Trinity Catholic defense on Thursday, Oct. 13. The Tigers lost to the Celtics, 26-8. Dunnellon to host Belleview in season finale tonight What counts in sports is not the victory, but the magnificence of the struggle. Joe Paterno, Penn State head football coach The Dunnellon junior varsity football team had a struggling game Thursday, Oct. 13, against Trinity Catholic as the Tigers fell to the Celtics, 26-8, but kept their heads up. They just had more horses in their barn that had some size and speed, Dunnellon coach Archie Smith said. We messed up on our kickoff coverage, which put us behind. In the first half, we were focused and moved the ball along. We were excited and were doing our jobs, even though it took us awhile. The second half, we kept trying, but mentally we lost it a little. Both teams offensives battled back and forth in the opening quarter, but each teams defense played better as neither offense found the end zone. In the middle of the second quarter, the Celtics offense found its rhythm. On third-and-11, Dyantre Colston ran up middle and cut to the left as the Tigers forced him out of bounds. On the following play, running back James Allen took the handoff, hit the outside and scored a touchdown. The Tigers Cole Fagan blocked the ensuing point after, but Dunnellon found itself trailing, 6-0 with 5:25 remaining in the first half. It didnt take long for Trinitys offense to get back on the field as the Tigers turned the ball over on the ensuing possession, setting the Celtics up inside their own territory. Trinitys Shawn Thompson scored another touchdown as the Celtics converted a 2point conversion to a take a 14-0 lead. The Tigers wasted little time striking back. Kane Parks took the kick off from the 11 yard line, ran up middle and scoring on an 89-yard return as Brandon Smith ran in the 2-point conversion to cut Trinitys lead to 14-8. Neither team scored again before the end of the first half as the Tigers found themselves trailing at half time. The Celtics struck quickly to open the second half, as Allen returned the opening kick off of the third quarter. Trinity was unable to convert on their 2-point attempt, but extended its lead to 20-6. Dunnellons offense appeared to have an answer, moving the ball inside its own 10-yard line. However, on a fourthand-goal, Tyler Powells pass fell incomplete. Trinitys offense, buoyed by penalties on the Tigers, scored its final blow with 6:22 remaining in the second half, extending their lead to 26-8. On Dunnellons next possession, Powell kept the ball, rushing for a 15-yard pick up. But two players later, on a second-and-7, Powells pass attempt was intercepted. The Tigers defense stopped the Celtics from finding the end zone again, but Trinitys offense had already done the damage in a 26-8 victory. Hold your heads high, Smith said. We are tough and its going to be tough. For our final game next week I am looking for more physical, and to develop desire. Go into the game saying, I am going to make this tackle or going to make this touchdown. You need to get the job done and have a good attitude doing it. Belleview had size from years past, which we were able to handle. They like to go toe-totoe so be ready for it. I am looking forward to it. Its the last game of the season and I am going to try and get everybody in (the game). Dunnellon hosts Belleview at 7 p.m. today at Ned Love Field.

S torm clouds were brewing like fresh morning coffee in the normally placid parsonage this past week. I will not say that things got out of hand, which is not to say they did not. I just will not say. I sensed a growing controversy between my wife and myself. Its genesis came about because of some silly mix-up, I assure you. Usually, mixups come about because of some misunderstanding and boy, do I sure miss my understanding. I have misplaced mine for so long I honestly cannot remember when I had it last. If my memory serves me, and it has not to date, the last time I had a glimpse of my understanding, I was standing at some altar repeating the words, I do. After that, life has been a glorious blur. The faux pas between us simply was a matter of attitude. My better half took the high road and I, per usual, took the low road. The reason I take the low road is simply that when I fall, and falling for me is inevitable, I do not have far to plummet. Regrettably, this past week we experienced a clash of attitudes. I can sum up my attitude in life quite nicely: Never do today what can be put off until tomorrow. Who knows? I may forget the whole thing by then, something I am renowned for around the parsonage, if you know what I mean. On the other hand, my lifes companion firmly believes in doing things ahead of time. For instance, by the end of August all her Christmas shopping is finished, wrapped and stored in the garage waiting for the Christmas tree. She has a wonderful knack for planning. What I want to know is how does she know if I am going to be naughty or nice? Usually, I give in to my better half. After all, that is what a great marriage is all about; give and take. As a dutiful husband, I take everything she gives me. This time, however, an important principle was at stake. Some things in life are worth fighting for and this represented one of those times. For years, I have suffered from a condition known as Afternoon Siesta Syndrome. Each afternoon I stretch out for an hour of rest. In that hour, I meditate on some of the more important issues of life. I cannot tell you how many significant problems I have resolved during my daily afternoon forty winks. I say I cant tell you not because I dont want to, but when aroused from my snooze I cant remember the solution. All I know is that somewhere in the recesses of my mind are wonderful resolutions to some of the most intricate problems facing our world today. In this regard, I do not know how often my wife has said to me, You need to see a psychiatrist. This leads me to the subject of our difference this past week. I am a firm believer in the Art of Casual Loafing. Loafing gets such a bad rap because so many amateurs try their hand at it. Let me say right here that loafing is definitely not for the inexperienced. A level of skill and expertise that only comes from diligent practice. Personally, I have invested over 50 years in the Art of Casual Loafing, which qualifies me as some sort of an expert on the subject. I am a proud, card-carrying member of the ACL union. I could have been elected president but we have not got around to elections yet. Many, and when I say many, I am especially including my companion, take loafing as something that comes rather easy.

My spouse thinks loafing is a tragic waste of time. She thinks things need doing in a timely fashion, like right now. The garbage must be taken out right now. The backyard needs mowing right now. The groceries in the back of the car need brought in right now. A person can take this right now business too far, if you ask me. I like to take things a little more casual than that. This right now hangup can create some serious stress in relationships; especially between hers and mine. Theres no time like the present, my wife often tells me with a look in her eye defying me not to do what she just requested. To her, right now is very important. When I want to resolve a difficulty, I resort to the Bible. This was no exception. Much to my amazement, the word now occurs in the Bible 1,356 times, which is rather impressive. I never thought of it before. What I discovered startled me. I had to admit that in certain things my dear wife is correct. Some things must be done right now. Two Bible verses emphasize the importance of right now. In the book of Isaiah, Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool (Isaiah 1:18 KJV). Then, in the New Testament behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2 KJV). Right now is the best time to address your relationship with Jesus Christ.

The Honor Flight Network transports WWII Veterans to Washington, D.C., to see their Memorial for which they waited more than 60 years. Spruce Creek Preserve will have seven WWII Veterans on the Oct. 27 Mission No. 4. It all began in May with a media article requesting Escorts for the June Ocala Honor Flight. Dee Winey, SCP resident, escorted on the June 14 Honor Flight and experienced the WWII Memorial with 104 Veterans and their escorts. This was such a moving experience she approached the Spruce Creek Preserve Military Club to support the October Mission and get as many of our resident WWII Veterans signed up for the Mission as possible. The project turned into a communitywide event including direct donations from residents, businesses and friends along with displays and donations accepted at the State Road 200 Walmart and Reds Restaurant. The Preserve Golf Club hosted a special event for Ocala Honor Flight. The finale was Canteen Night at the Preserve with free desserts followed by live music, entertainment and a Chinese raffle/auction of more than 25 items donated by our resident artists and businesses along the S.R. 200 corridor.

Special to Riverland News Sunday Sampler to continue The Sunday Sampler is a celebration of music sponsored by the Will McLean Foundation, which has as one of its major functions the preserving of Florida history through music. The name comes from the fact that it is performed on the second Sunday monthly and is a sampler of the talented artists who will be performing at the Will McLean Festival March 9 to 11, 2012, at the Sertoma Youth Ranch in Brooksville. Performances are at 2:30 p.m. at the Historic Dunnellon Depot, 12061 S. Williams St., Dunnellon. Performances last about two hours with a refreshment break. A donation to the Foundation of $10 is accepted at the door. This is the current lineup of artists. The schedule with websites where one may find out more about the performers follows: Nov. 13: Amy Carol Webb The Song Weaver, is an award winning song writer who electrifies a stage with songs that run the gamut from hysterically funny to tear producing lyrics performed on her band of guitars, each of which is named and chosen for the song. On the web: www.amycarolwebb.com. Jan. 8, 2012: Carly Bak and Garrison Doles Bak grew up in South Dakota cow country, now lives on the Withlacoochee River and has channeled her infatuation with nature, music and folklore into her award winning songs that she performs with feeling. On the web: www.carlybak.com Garrison says he is a broken shard of sea glass that washed up on the beach shattered and jagged and tossed in the ocean; and his award winning original songs reflect that hard living, hard drinking period of his life as his stage presence reflects his theatrical calling expressed in Orlandos Theatre Downtown, which he co-founded. On the web: www.garrisondoles.com Feb. 14, 2012: Mindy Simmons Floridas Sweetheart, is a consummate performer of original songs as well as classic blues, jazz and folk music, including a terrific tribute program to the late, great Miss Peggy Lee.

C hristmas cactus is a popular plant, and now is the time to start planning if you want blooms at the right time. It is the shorter day lengths, and cooler temperatures that will begin the plants flowering process, similar to poinsettias and chrysanthemums. If the plants are indoors, exposed to artificial lights the plant may not set the buds we want. Natural light will help the plant to do this naturally. Placing the indoor plant in a dark cupboard from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. should trick the plant into setting bud. This is going to be a sixweek project, with blooms appearing in 10 weeks. My math means if you start now you should have blooms on Christmas day. In the garden, its time to plant strawberries. A bed can be prepared and used, or containers are great for this fruit. Dont forget to water daily, while the plants establish themselves. Lawns will begin to loose the color as the weather cools. If you want to keep a green lawn, overseed with annual ryegrass. Dont mow to low grass should be from 2.5 inches (Dwarf St. Augustine) to 4 inches (Bahia or St. Augustine). Lilly, and agapanthus bulbs can be planted for next spring color. Vegetables such as Brussels, beets, cabbage, cauliflower and onions should now be planted. Either directly sown, or in pots for seedling transplanting. Watering until established is important, but not too much to avoid damping off. The giant African snail is still being found in quantity in the south, so keeping prudent when visiting or receiving visitors is a must. The snail can consume your garden causing damage, but most importantly can pose a health risk to people. The link here entnemdept.ufl.edu/hodges/ Florida2011/Skelley.pdf will take you to a presentation on the State of Florida plant division site. Enjoy the cooler weather, but remember there is still plenty to do in the garden. Tracy Jenner, the Riverland Gardener, can be reached at tracyjenner@aol.com.
