A 20-year-old Dunnellon man faces several charges, including fleeing and eluding, after leading Marion County Sheriffs deputies on a chase that reached speeds of up to 110 mph along State Road 40 and U.S. 41 into Chatmire early Monday morning. Eric D. Humbert Jr. was charged with fleeing and eluding, resisting without violence, possession of marijuana, less than 20 grams, and driving without a valid drivers license. Its the second time in less than a month, according to sheriffs office records, Humbert has being charged with fleeing and eluding. Overall, its the third time in two years, according to arrest records on the sheriffs office website, Humbert has been charged with fleeing and eluding police. According to the sheriffs office website, Humbert was charged Oct. 3 with fleeing and eluding, failing to obey a law enforcement officers order to stop and driving while license suspended/revoked, stemming from a chase he lead authorities on Aug. 29, along County Road 484, south on State Road 200 and into Citrus County. In November 2009, Humbert was also charged for fleeing and eluding, operating a motor vehicle without a valid license, resisting without violence, violation or parole (possession of cocaine) and violation of parole (sale of cocaine). That incident, according to reports, occurred at County Road 484 and Southwest 180th Avenue. According to Mondays report, a Former city employee, councilwoman Young dies Current City Clerk Dawn Bowne recalls the first time she ever got into trouble as a city employee. Bowne was cross-training with Ann Young, who was about to retire as assistant city clerk, a position which Bowne was slated to take over. During the transition period, Bowne was learning the ropes in employee payroll. The city had just made the transition to printed checks, having replaced the longtime era of handwriting employee checks. There was a space where whoever did payroll checks could make a note, Bowne said. It also happened to be during the time the city had just begun to promote its recycling program the thenCity Council had adopted as an ordinance. The memo read: Dont forget to recycle your white trash. I was in my early 20s and she asked what I thought about it, Bowne explained. We both thought it was pretty funny and pretty harmless. NATURESFINEST: HALPATATASTANAKIPRESERVE The Halpata Tastanaki Preserve is a nice hiking experience where you can enjoy the beauty of nature and take in its rich historical past.

Bryant says shell continue to work on issueAt first with little fanfare, and then with some conciliatory comments, the Marion County Commission made it official Tuesday, Oct. 18 the proposed communication merger has been rejected by the city of Ocala. An agreement had supposedly been reached to combine the dispatch services of the county and the city, lessening the need for transferring emergency calls from the original 911 call-taker, but the city backed out after an emotional meeting in which officials learned that a prominent employee had been told he was losing his job. The county commissioners didnt comment as they accepted a letter from the city negating a previous agreement, but shortly after, under commissioners comments, the subject came up. Chairman Stan McClain noted, We have to continue to work on that government is going to have to change the way it operates. He suggested a joint meeting with the city early next year. We have to continue to try. Commissioner Mike Amsden noted that there was already some common ground on the issues, and he noted examples such as ambulances, animal control, etc. Sometimes passion overlooks common sense of the issue. Commissioner Carl Zalak commented, Its not about us, its about the community. Commissioner Kathy Bryant, who received praise from her fellow commissioners for her efforts, said she would keep working at the merger. I havent given up. In other business, the county delayed an appointment to a housing board because one of the applicants had checked yes on an application where it asked if he had ever been convicted of a felony. The form didnt ask for any more information than that, and commissioners felt they needed more details. The county also set a Scenic Roads ordinance public hearing for Nov. 15. The county will also host a public workshop at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 29, to discuss the master plan at the DunnellonMarion County Airport. feral pig and red or gray fox. Halpata Tastanaki Preserve, named after Seminole Chief Alligator, contains the site of the largest battle of the Second Seminole War in 1836. General Edmund P. Gaines, with his force of 1,100 looking to strike the Seminoles in their stronghold Cove of the Withlacoochee, met between 1,000 to 1,500 Seminoles under Chief Osceola and Micanopy on Feb. 27, 1836. Continuing along the river, Gaines reached a peninsula on Feb. 28. While the troops were trying to cross the river, the Seminoles fired, striking and mortally wounding Lt. James Izard. Gaines forces fell back and constructed a breastwork (Camp Izard) and were low on rations. They had to resort to eating their own horses while under siege. During the siege, the Seminoles tried to turn Gaines command out by setting fire to the brush outside the fortification, and Gaines himself was struck by a musket ball that cost him two of his lower teeth. After a week of withstanding Seminole attacks with musket and cannon, On March 6, 1836, the Seminoles were chased off by reinforcements from Fort Drane commanded by Gen. Duncan L. Clinch. Clinch was unaware Gaines was holding possible peace negotiations with Seminole leaders at the time, and his actions negated any hope for peace. The fort would only be used briefly during the rest of the war. It is unclear whether Izards remains were moved to St. Augustine after the war in 1842, or if they are still there. The actual site of Camp Izard is restricted to certain personnel, but there are plans for a possible educational museum.

Marion County Sheriffs deputy was traveling westbound on State Road 40 when he observed a white two-door vehicle traveling westbound in the left lane, straddling the solid yellow line. The deputy got behind the vehicle in an attempt to obtain a driving pattern due to the suspicion the driver may possibly be under the influence, the report stated. At this time, the driver changed lanes and the deputy moved behind the vehicle and activated his emergency lights. According to the report, the driver sped up and failed to stop at which time the deputy activated his siren as Humbert continued westbound on S.R. 40 toward Dunnellon at a high rate of speed of 110 mph. The deputy initiated a pursuit at which time other units responded including Officer Mike Miley and Cpl. Carolina Rolfes from the Dunnellon Police Department, the report stated. According to the report, the pursuit continued toward U.S. 41, where stop sticks were set up in the area of S.R. 40 and U.S. 41. Humbert hit the stop sticks, flattening both driver-side tires, the report stated. Humbert then made a left turn onto U.S. 41 and drove south on U.S. 41 in which both deputies and personnel from Dunnellon continued pursuing Humbert into the Chatmire area, where Humbert jumped out of the vehicle in the area of 109th and Martin Luther King Terrace where a deputy gave chase and several commands to stop. However, the report stated, Humbert kept running and the deputy lost sight of him, but provided a description of Humbert over the radio to other law enforcement personnel. At this time, the report stated, a K-9 unit responded and conducted a track for Humbert, who was later found at a friends residence. According to the report, a a friend said he loaned Humbert his vehicle to go to the store. At press time Tuesday, Humbert was being held at the Marion County Jail with bail set at $6,500. Saturation patrols set for Friday, MondayAs party-going ghosts and goblins celebrate Halloween this October, Dunnellon Police Department reminds everyone to keep the party off the road. 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.

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 trash both pose potential safety and health hazards. Four days after the first TakeBack event in September 2010, Congress passed the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an ultimate user of controlled substance medications to dispose of them by delivering them to entities authorized by the Attorney General to accept them. The Act also allows the Attorney General to authorize long term care facilities to dispose of their residents controlled substances in certain instances. DEA has begun drafting regulations to implement the Act, a process that can take as long as 24 months. Until new regulations are in place, local law enforcement agencies like Dunnellon Police Department and the DEA will continue to hold prescription drug take-back events every few months. For more information regarding National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, contact Officer Shane Yox at 352-465-8510 or email syox@dunnellonpd.org. Event will be Saturday at Dunnellon Police Department Special to the Riverland News Special to the Riverland News Dunnellon Police to conduct DUI checkpoint Oct. 29 ON THE WEB: www.riverlandnews.com CHASE continued from page 1 Congressman visits kidney center Special to the Riverland News Congresman Richard Nugent visited the DaVita Ocala Regional Kidney Center South clinic Friday, Oct. 21, in support of Kidney Health Awareness. Congressman Nugent, right, visits with patient Gordon Deas as Nikki Denman looks on. The lengths that DaVita goes to to ensure a family and patient-centered approach is striking, said Rep. Nugent. They focus not just on quality of health but quality of life and thats what makes the difference. The staff is motivated by the people they are caring for and its clear the moment you walk in the door. More than 31 million Americans are affected by Chronice Kidney Disease (CKD), most of whom are unaware they are affected by the disease. The chance that an American adult has CKD is nearly 12 times greater than an American womans risk of getting breast cancer. High risk groups include African-Americans, Hispanics, Pacific Islanders, Native Americans and seniors (those 60 and over). Primary risk factors include diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease or a family history of these conditions.

River views Iturn 50 in December. This means the inevitable is coming. I am not thinking about death. No, it is another unpleasant inevitable. I dont like saying it because it is a word old ladies use. I find it hard to say menopause because I am only 24 in my head. That is not a topic a 24year-old would think about. I was telling a friend I was not looking forward to living with hot flashes for the next 30 years. Since she has experience with this issue, she suggested I try an herbal supplement, which suppresses hot flashes. I figured why not get a head start and see how it works. So I did what any college-educated woman would do. I self medicated. Did I do any research? No, I dont need no stinkin research! I hit Sweet Bay and found a vitamin for women in their prime (cough, cough) and the suggested supplement. Life is good. I am as happy as a clam. (Are clams happy? How can you tell?). Then it hits me. One day I am at the post office buying stamps. Oh, look its sweet puppies and kitties. Sniffle, sniffle. Arent you the cutest little wobbie bear! Boo Who! I start sobbing over a puppy stamp. I run to my car and use half a box of tissues. What was that all about? A few days later, I am vacuuming and I vacuumed a small stuffed bird my sister gave me. I fell on the floor sobbing. I killed my bird! The fact that I was vacuuming should have been a warning sign. Something was wrong. The mood swings were killing me. I could no longer watch TV. I cried over the Geico commercials. In between the crying jags, I wanted to kill anyone who annoyed me. The conversation in my head went something like this. Did you just say hello to me? How dare you say hello! Cant you see I am not in the mood to say hello? Life stinks! Why would I want to say hello? Breathe deep, Wallace. Youre losing it and you need to stay calm. To make matters worse, I was beginning to get to know a really great guy. Hes smart, funny and sweet. I was borderline stalking the guy. I couldnt stop myself. I was a mixture of a dog in heat and a wolf salivating over a lamb. This guy Parents placing children at risk Just a big ol scaredy cat Quick, whats the first thing you think of when I say witches, ghosts and goblins? Halloween? Fun? Thrills and Chills? Well, I say, no thanks. For you see, Im just a big ole scaredy-cat, a chicken, a downright wimp when it comes to anything that can cause terror or fear. If you say fright, I say good night. With Halloween right around the corner, thoughts are turning to anything and everything that will scare the pants off of people. But the only part of trick or treat that I like is the candy. I can hardly bring myself to walk through the costume aisle at the local store. All those bloody, one-eyed ghoul masks staring back at me. Thank goodness my grandchildren always choose superheroes to portray. I can handle that. Ive never been inside a Haunted House, never went to Halloween Horror Nights and never wanted to be scared so badly that I wet my pants. My family knows all about my big secret. When I was a child, there were no DVD players or Redbox machines and popular movies were available on television once a year, so The Wizard of Oz was something we looked forward to. But when it would come on, I would make both my brothers sit right beside me and they couldnt leave until the movie was over. I mean come on: witches, wild monkeys, munchkins and one mean old neighbor lady it doesnt get any scarier than that. My brothers bedroom was up in the attic. A big, dark, scary attic. How I hated going up there by myself. It wasnt until years later that I told my mother about the witch that lived up there that I would see only when I was alone. She never came out when my family was around. Oh, the imagination of an 8year-old child. The scariest movie Ive ever seen is The Exorcist. Now I have no idea how my husband even got me to watch it. However, the rest of the night his head kept spinning around and I kept waiting for projectile vomit to spew out of him. Jaws kept me out of the water for years, same with cars after watching Christine. Dont even get me started on The Birds. And while everybody else is lusting after Edward and Jacob, Im simply looking over my shoulder waiting for some big creepy thing to jump out and bite me. Nope, I never saw The Shining or Silence of the Lambs, but you can scare me just by talking about them. Does this make me weird? Im not sure. However, I did marry the only other person in the world that hates scary movies as much as I do. So I guess thats a plus. Give me a romantic comedy any day and my spouse prefers action flicks, but some of them scare me, so I guess I am one step more scaredy-cat than him. But you wont find any Freddie or Jason in this house, and I can promise you Im not going to be the girl that goes into the cellar because she hears a noise or goes outside because the dog is barking.

Honestly, Im not really sure many folks pay much attention to the name of the column; theyre reading what the columnist is ranting about for the week. But I must admit Ive always taken pride in just how the title of my column came about. Sure Ive thought about changing it throughout the past 11 years since relocating from Kansas. I wasnt even a year into my first professional job when my then-editor Chris Wessel decided we should have a communitywide contest to give the public a chance to name my column. I was hesitant to say the least since I grew up in the town and most folks knew me because they knew my parents, especially my father, a career firefighter. Needless to say some of the choices were interesting; others off the wall; and others paying homage to my linage. I encouraged my boss at the time to go with the safe selection. I cannot even recall what we chose. During my time at our tri-weekly paper we were locked in a battle with the longtime hometown daily newspaper. Now please understand their staff of editorial folks had no ties to the community; they all came from other areas across the United States. Our news staff was 100 percent local; we had a vested interest in our community and what direction community leaders wanted to go. I, on the other hand, was busy covering sports at our three local high schools and the college. And I did a pretty bang up job making the rounds. A lot of the athletes I knew well having gone to school with their older brothers, sisters or cousins; some I knew from their days as a pool rat while working as a lifeguard. Needless to say a parent had questioned the sports editor of the local newspaper why he couldnt do a better job of covering the local prep sports. The sports editor chronicled the encounter in a column; as if a member of the mafia has threatened to break his legs. As he rambled on in his column, he explained how hard it was to do so much as he was just one person. Midway through his woe is me speech, he explained how the parent had brought my name into the conversation. The columnist then made his case: Dont compare me to that other guy; as far as Im concerned there is no How editor became The Other Guy New parents can drive themselves crazy trying to avoid making mistakes with their babies. Some issues are relatively benign. But some are so serious that they have repercussions far beyond a specific household. You might wonder what individual child-rearing decision can affect entire communities? Its the decision some parents have been making to reject or delay the childhood vaccinations that are recommended by our countrys preeminent medical and physician associations and agencies. The Internet is rife with incendiary anecdotes about children experiencing negative reactions after vaccination and with righteous holding-forth from parents apparently convinced that vaccinations promote disease rather than control it. A particularly insidious belief is about a link between vaccines and autism an allegation thats been traced to a single fraudulent report and disproved soundly in the scientific literature. In addition, some new parents dismiss the severity of vaccine-preventable diseases. They havent seen these diseases in their lifetimes primarily because of our universal vaccination program, which seems now to be a victim of its own success. They should be asking their parents and grandparents what it was like just 50 or 60 years ago, when polio was a terrifyingly real threat and whooping cough or measles could drive neighborhoods and schools to sickbeds and hospitals. These parents dont seem to understand the chain of infection or the true risk of vaccine-preventable diseases, focusing instead on sensationalized and overblown exhortations about perceived threats of vaccines. The parents act on their own research instead of recommendations from medical authorities based on decades of scientific studies. The facts are simple: An unvaccinated child is at greater risk of catching one of these potentially life-threatening diseases, and also can transmit it throughout the community. There already are reports of pediatricians who will not allow unvaccinated children into their offices. As the CDC says, its like a boat with a small leak: When we started bailing, the boat was filled with water. But we have been bailing fast and hard, and now it is almost dry. We could say, Good. The boat is dry now, so we can throw away the bucket and relax. But the leak hasnt stopped. Before long wed notice a little water seeping in, and soon it might be back up to the same level as when we started. Only eliminating disease can stop the leak. We see outbreaks of measles, chicken pox and whooping cough, among others, when vaccination rates drop. Removing the protection conferred by immunization is like letting the boat refill. Parents need to understand that vaccinations are critically important for both individual and public health.Citrus County Chronicle Audrey Beem Say no to drugs Kathleen Wallace See SMILE page 5 See OTHER GUY page 5

I can only hope he believes in second chances. I had to find out what the heck was going on. I was acting so strange. Yes, I know I do some crazy things, but this behavior was way over the top for me. I talked to my older and wiser sister. She said I need to look at the ingredients of the vitamin and the supplement. There was enough estrogen to make Mother Teresa randy! I was taking mass quantities of estrogen. This explained why in a span of five minutes I would go from crying, contemplating murder and winking at strange men. I was out of control. I learned to never self medicate. You would think this is obvious, because I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on television! I only take three pills a week and my life has calmed down. Before I was taking 14 pills a week as instructed on the box. Now, I need to find a map of Canada. I have a lot explaining to do. If I could just get that guy to give me a second chance I would be as happy as that clam! Well, my story does not have a happy ending. There was no second chance. In fact, the guy showed up at my favorite restaurant with a date while I was there. He used a coupon for a free meal that I had given him! And you wonder why I am single. I have horrible taste in men. SMILE continued from page 4 comparison. At first we said he was right. He was horrible and I beat him like a onelegged man in a ... well you get the point. Tempted to fire a shot across the bow, we plotted another course of action. We decided to seize the opportunity to make our product better without firing a salvo; but we knew we needed something subtle. Thats when George, my good friend, co-worker and graphic artist guru, blurted out the obvious: Well Jeffy, he said. I guess youll just have to settle for being the other guy. He hit the nail on the head. We rushed into our boss office and ran the suggestion past him. The ladies in our office knew what we were up to as the laughter from his office filtered throughout the building. Of course a good portion of our readers caught on to the change; but the sports editor of the opposing paper never did, or at the least, never tipped his hand. So Ive always taken great pride in being The Other Guy, because hes the guy willing to bust a little tail to get the job done, because a little hard work never hurts.

Race to the Top money paid for programNo longer will students have to carry around thumb drives, portable hard disks, or multiple user names and passwords for their school work. Thats because a new electronic Student Desktop offered to local high school students streamlines mobile computing with powerful and popular options. Marion County public high school students can now access comprehensive information with a single log-in using their current district-issued user name and password student grades including GPA, class ranking, grade history, FCAT history, ACT and SAT information (college entrance exams), and attendance information. Direct links are also provided for academic information and resources including MAPNET, FAFSA, and FACTS.org in an area known as the Student Information Box. Perhaps most notable, students will now have online access to popular school computer applications including Microsoft Word, Outlook, and PowerPoint for free. Additional computer applications include CCC Video on Demand, Live@edu email, SkyDrive, and Destiny, the districts online library catalogue. Students will automatically access their school web page when clicking on the dashboards browser icon. Already, this Student Desktop is attracting attention from around the state for its comprehensive approach and single log-in feature. So far, 16 school districts have expressed interest in coming to Marion County over the next few weeks to examine the Student Desktop framework. This same framework will in the future provide the backbone to deliver etextbooks instead of the traditional paper textbook. This Student Desktop will also roll out to public elementary and middle school students in the near future. The overall $350k price tag is paid through federal Race to the Top dollars. 6 Riverland News, Thursday, October 27, 2011 0009MG9 G R A N D O P E N I N G Saturday, Oct. 29 H a y & F e e d H a y & F e e d We are now a proud distributors for Feed and Animal Health Products From 10am 2pm a Seminole Feed Representative will be here to talk about Seminole Feed & Health Products and answer any questions.

And organizers of the second annual Pink Out against Breast Cancer want the community to be a part of the event. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and that means those at Dunnellon High dont want folks forgetting the most important part is awareness. Last year marked the first time schools countywide hosted an event. This year has been no different. The fight against breast cancer begins with awareness, said Jennifer Leeds, event coordinator and activities director at Dunnellon High. As the lights come up at Ned Love Field for the Tigers home finale, the football team and cheerleaders will sport pink. The football team will sport a pink D with a ribbon on it. The football team and the cheerleaders are asking Tiger fans to join them in coming to the game dressed in pink to help show support to the friends and family members within the Dunnellon community who have been affected by breast cancer, Leeds said. What does the Pink Out game mean for students?, Leeds asked It provides an opportunity to have discussion and raise awareness about breast cancer not only at school, but at home as well, she said. This is no longer a disease that only affects a few. The reality is that more and more people, specifically women become victim to this disease. The more we can teach the children and young adults of today about breast cancer, the more hope there is for their tomorrow. Not only does the game mark Dunnellons quest to Pink Out the stadium, it marks Senior Night in which senior athletes from each fall sport will be honored for the commitment the past four years to the sports they played.

RITA HUTTON For the Riverland News Pupils sell 213 Coupons for Education booklets See FAME page 9 Sweet reads For the first time, Dunnellon High School librarians Joan Lourenco and Rebecca Jenkins hosted an Edible Books Competition for the annual Teen Read Week made by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). The YALSA, founded in 1998, encourages teens to read for pleasure and not just because they had to. Mrs. Lourenco has been involved with Teen Read Week for nine years. The Edible Book Competition was brought about by this years theme, Picture It @ Your Library. Mrs. Lourenco came up with the idea for edible books because she felt that it would be a good visual for students to get more involved in reading. Any staff and students were allowed to enter their own works into the competition. They could enter as an individual, a club or as a class group. There were 27 entries with a total of 130 participants. The rules were: the entry must be original and cannot be copyrighted in any form. The entries had to be edible and based on a title, pun or had to depict a literacy element from the book they selected. There was no registration fee, but each entry had to pre-register by Oct. 19. On Friday, Oct. 21, the entries had to be delivered to the media center by 9:30 a.m. in order to be displayed. There were two different types of judging one with actual judges and another where the students got to vote. The judges voted in the morning between 9:45 and 11 while the students voted during lunch. The votes for students were counted by change, one penny counted as one vote. Whichever edible book raised the most money was the winner. All of the proceeds were donated to United Way. The categories the judges voted for were Best Show, Judges Choice Award, Most Realistic, Best Individual, Most Creative, Top Staff, Best Pun, Top Club Entry, and Top Staff Entry. The winners from the judges are as followed: Best Show: Beth Siegal and the Photos by JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsThe Best Show award went to Beth Siegal and the Cafeteria Staff for If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.

On Monday, Oct. 24, we did Turn your back on Drugs and wore our clothes backward.

Students also received Just Say No pencils. Wednesday, Oct. 26, students signed pledge cards in their classroom. Today, Oct. 27, is wear red day. Thanks so much for your support! Lt. Troy Slattery and Julian Abrams, driver engineer, from Dunnellon Fire Rescue recently visited extended day to talk on fire safety at home. Fireman Abrams dressed up in the full gear and showed the children what he wears to fires. When there is a fire alarm at the station, they have three minutes to get dressed! The driver/engineer puts on most of the equipment, but has other duties to perform on the way so saves the last when they arrive at the fire. Lt. Slattery talked about the importance of being extra safe during the upcoming holiday season. People use candles and Christmas tree lights and these are potential fire hazards. He also mentioned how most kitchen fires start on the stove. Also, always unplug your curling irons and blow dryers and dont put them away in a drawer or cabinet until they have cooled off. He talked about Halloween safety. Let your parents check your candy before you eat any of it. He asked the students if they are learning things they dont think they will use later in life. Lt. Slattery told the children how important school is and that every class will make you a better person. In his job, knowing history and social studies helps him know how people might react when the fire truck pulls up to their homes. Science tells him that heat rises to the top and cold air sinks. So the smoke in the house will rise. Music helps him learn different pitches and helps him listen to a fire. Different pitches in the fire mean different things. High-pitched fires are bigger fires. Whistling fires are more volatile. The visit was very informative and interesting for the children. Lt. Slattery wanted to stress this: Encourage parents to work with kids to design their own escape routes. They brought a packet of games containing information about fire safety. They ended their visit by taking the children out to the fire truck and explaining where everything is and its function. The extended-day staff presented Lt. Slattery and Abrams with a gift basket of goodies and a packet of thank you cards from the kids at extended day!Riverland News, Thursday, October 27, 2011 9 0009EMP 0009MUB LOWEST PRICES!

Then-City Clerk Connie Scott didnt agree. Connie walked in and threw the checks down on Anns desk and told us both to fix it, Bowne said. Here I was, shaking in my boots. Ann just said, Yes, maam. But shes the only person who could have gotten away with it. Looking back on it now, its pretty funny, but only Ann could do that. She always tried to get people to laugh. And its just one of many stories Bowne and others recalled about the Young, a veteran city employee who also served as a councilwoman in the 1990s, including two stints as a temporary replacement. Young died Friday, Oct. 21, at the age of 86. Ann was a pleasure to work with, she always had a smile on her face, said Larry Winkler, who served as mayor during Youngs first stint on the City Council. She gave a lot back to the community. One thing I remember, the paper was quick to come down here and cover something when it was negative. Pat was running against the young lady that been on City Council before and was in a lot controversy, because controversy sells newspapers. I remember each time they did a story on Ann, theyd always mention her age, it was Ann Young, 70. They always pointed it out. I used to joke with her that her last name was 70, not Young. She always laughed about it. Young, who was born in West Virginia, moved to Dunnellon in 1963. She was a charter member of Holy Faith Episcopal Church of Dunnellon. Young also served as a Brownie and Girl Scout leader, Sunday school teacher, homeroom mother and volunteer in local schools and community functions. Even her daughter, Nancy Myers, recalled her mothers sense of humor, especially on the night of her Roast/Retirement Party at Rainbow Springs Golf & Country Club. Young had received a pretty dress from her other daughter, Ruthy Young Johnson. At the roast, everyone got up and said nice things and told funny stories about mom, Myers recalled. At the end of the night, she got up at the podium and said thank you all for coming and sharing; that was so touched. Then she told everyone she had one last thing to say, she turned around and pulled up her dress and pinned to her pink bloomers was a handkerchief with the words Kiss My Grits and she panned the whole audience. I was mortified. My daughter, Bre, is asking me why shes showing her bottom. She got a standing ovation, everyone just roared. One time, Bowne said, Young just climbed onto the old antique table at City Hall and danced to her hearts content. Another time, Bowne said, an irate customer went out the door laughing. Annie just looked at him and asked him if hed like to dance, Bowne said. She was a trip. Those are only things that Ann could get away with. After her retirement, Young traveled as much as she could with granddaughter, Bre, Myeres said. They went to Russia, Europe, Alaska, everywhere they could think of. She saved her money and thats what she wanted to do, Myers recalled. Young served under Nita Bowne, Dawns mother-in-law, who said she was more than co-worker. Ann was a very dear friend of mine and my family, Dawn Bowne said. She always had a smile on her face and was a jokster if I ever saw one. She was a great friend who shared much advice with me over the years regarding city life and personal issues, Bowne recalled. Most advice included not taking life too seriously, stay out of the city politics, always put God first and remember to not take your family for granted, make time for your friends and drink at least one beer a day! Myers said in addition to her mothers big sense of humor, her faith was even bigger. What Im going to miss the most is when I could call and go mom youre not going to believe this, Myers said. Shed just say, now now. She was so good at calming you down. Shed tell me not to worry about it, come over and have a bite of lunch. Thats going to the hard part. Even when we took her to the hospital the last time, she was flirting with paramedics, checking to see if they had wedding bands. A memorial service will be at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 6, at First United Methodist Church of Dunnellon. In lieu of flowers, friends can contribute to the Ann Young Memorial Fund at Superior Bank to benefit children of financially challenged families who want to play Dunnellon Little League ball. Donations are also encouraged for Marion County Hospice and Holy Faith Episcopal Church in her honor.. on the map can contact her through Monday morning at 489-2320. Ive quite a few so far, the businesses always come out in support of this, she said of the annual event thats been going on for years. Leisure said the Dunnellon Police Department will be involved again this year, as it has in the past. Not only do the officers and staff set up a table, but help patrol the area while the children are plodding along the course. They watch it pretty good, Leisure said. Its a safe place for them to trick or treat; a nice community event for the kids.Soffe family Haunted HouseThe Soffe Family Haunted House for Kids has been a tradition for more than 25 years, according to Violo Soffe. The first event was in 1983 with 60 visitors, but grew to more than 650 visitors in 2009. The reason behind the event came in the early 1980s when it became a concern to let kids go trick or treating, Soffe said about her then 7and 3year-old children. So I decided to put on a Haunted House for Kids. It was so well received that first year, we planned another one for the following year, and here we are now, over 25 years later and almost 600 more visitors. The concept for the Haunted House, Soffe explained, is to let kids have something else to do plus a party at their home and some safe trick or treating at trusted homes. No one will jump out at the kids, grab or scream at them, Soffe said. Its all low key. With a conventional Haunted House there is a lot of yelling, loud noises and downright terror with the idea of scaring everyone out of their skin. However, now that her son is an adult, he decided to add a twist for adults and teens. He has added a separate area that is a little more intense, from falling trees to ghost walkers, Soffe said without tipping her hand too much. The Soffe family Haunted House for Kids will be from 7 to 10 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31, at 18755 S.W. 60th St., Lake Tropicana, 1 mile north of State Road 40 off of U.S. 41. Admission is free. For more information or directions, call Soffe at 445-0728 or visit Haunted House for Kids on Facebook.Haunted Walk TrailsRainbow Springs State Park, which brings folks Santa Over the Rainbow in December and Cracker Days in the spring, is adding some fall flair to its offerings with the inaugural Haunted Trail Walks from 7 to 10 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31.

Authority board meetings are generally scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. Once renovations are completed by late November, the Authoritys new mailing address will be: 3600 W.

Relocating the Authoritys administrative office and adding contract administrative support for the Authority, decided at the Authoritys September board meeting resulted from changes at Southwest Florida Water Management District where the Authority had been generously provided co-location and staffing support since 2008. Citrus County resident, Nancy H. Smith, AICP, is now under contract to provide administrative support in the Authoritys new administrative office. Authority Executive Director Jack Sullivan said he is very pleased with the direction the Authority and its member governments have taken toward supporting the administrative transition. The Authority will be optimally situated for making water conservation a top priority in the region, he said. Within the past year, the Authority initiated the Regional Residential Irrigation Audit and Education Pilot Program funded in part by Southwest Florida Water Management District, the Coastal Rivers Basin Board and the Withlacoochee River Basin Board, matched by the Authority and participating members. The Authority is coordinating 250 site-specific evaluations of inefficient landscaping practices and irrigation devices. Residential water users with monthly usage in excess of 30,000 gallons are eligible to participate.

Halloween Cookies and Cakes Out to pastor The illusive art of catching up Is it just me, or do others have trouble catching up? Just when it looks like I am almost caught up with some project or my to-do-list, something happens setting me back a few paces. One step forward, as they say and for me 17 steps backward. Or, so it seems. I dont have any problem whatsoever catching a cold. I once even caught a fly in my mouth while preaching, and it is as easy as New York style cheesecake to catch the dickens from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Catching up is another matter all together. Two things happened last week that brought this to my attention. First, I took someone out to lunch. That in itself is not outstanding. My wife tells me I am out to lunch all the time. Have you ever tried to impress someone by taking them out to lunch and insist on paying for lunch? That is exactly what I did this past week. Why I ever try to impress anyone is beyond my wifes wildest imagination, but I try, much to her chagrin. With a couple of hours to spare, my friend called me. Immediately I set into action a plan to meet him at the restaurant for lunch on me. We had a grand time catching up on each others life. Personally, I was thrilled to Catch Up on something. Unfortunately, I thought I was on a roll with ham and cheese. It was delicious to enjoy this brief time if only for a moment, but all good things do end. Things were about to turn ugly. No, someone did not bring me a mirror. Instead, the affable waitress brought me the check. Normally, this would not be a problem. I would accept the check after some friendly banter with the waitress complaining about the amount and threatening not to tip her and she threatening to tell my wife. We all smiled and then it happened. I casually reached around to my back pocket to extract my wallet containing my credit card with which I would pay the check. My back pocket was as empty as a politicians promises. At first, a slight streak of panic raced through my person causing me to freeze in petrifying fear. My first thought, I had someone elses trousers on. But whose? More important, where was the man wearing my trousers? I smiled one of those smiles that says, Oops, Im in trouble but I dont want anyone to know. My friend sensed something was wrong; friends are like that. Looking at me he said, Is anything wrong? Being the truthful person I am, I said, Wrong? What could be wrong? Weve just enjoyed a great time together. No, nothings wrong. Absolutely nothing is wrong. One problem with friends is they always know when you are lying. My friend was no different. He just looked at me and said, OK, whats wrong? I may have trouble catching up but I have no trouble whatsoever being caught with my pants down. Well, maybe not quite down but certainly empty. Nothing is sadder than a man wearing empty trousers. Did you forget your wallet? my friend asked with delight dancing in his eyes. He happily paid the tab but I will never live it down. The second incident also had to do with my wallet. Although this time, I did not forget my wallet. I had an early morning meeting across town. I knew my car was running on fumes but no need to worry. I left the house early enough to stop and gas up. Pulling out of my driveway, I noticed the gas gauge was lower than I remembered it being the night before. A tinge of terror gripped my mind and I earnestly prayed I would get to the gas station on time. I sighed with relief as I approached a gas station. The station had just opened and the sign on the pump informed me I needed to pay for the gas before pumping it. No problem. I ambled in, presented my credit card and purchased $20 worth of gas. There is a good feeling associated with a schedule well in hand. I glanced at my watch and noticed I was two minutes ahead of schedule. With a whistle on my lips and air between my ears, I got into my car and drove away. Two miles later, I glance at the gas gauge and noticed it had not moved. I tapped the gauge and nothing happened. At that time, the car sputtered and coughed ominously. Then, like a bolt of lightening, it struck me. I had paid for the gas and drove away without pumping it into my car. By this time, the car engine stopped and I had just enough momentum to pull to the side of the road. I sat there a few minutes pondering my dilemma. I knew what I had to do but I did not want to do it. Slowly, I picked up my cell phone and dialed the dreaded number. The phone rang and in a moment, I heard myself speaking into the phone, Honey, can you Waiting for my wife to bring a can of gas I thought of a verse of scripture. Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin (James 4:17 KJV). Good intentions must be accompanied with appropriate action.The Rev. James L.

She died at home Friday, Oct. 21, 2011 surrounded by family and friends after a year long challenge from breast cancer.

DHS hosts Pirates in critical district showdown Their backs against the wall in the race for one of two spots in the District 5A-5 playoff race, Dunnellon High School coach Frank Beasley and his team know theirs no margin for error Friday night at Ned Love Field when Crystal River High School marches in. The seventh-year head coach also knows the Pirates, fresh off a disheartening overtime district loss, will be just as hungry as his Tigers. Its a big game, a really big game, Beasley said. I really hope our community comes out; its a huge rivalry with huge implications for each team. Theyve got a really good football team. Theyre big, physical and pretty young like us. Theyve got some impressive athletes. Already saddled with one district loss, Dunnellon will likely have to win Friday against the Pirates, a long-time rival. The Tigers will also likely need a victory against North Marion or another teams help to earn a chance to qualify for the Class 5A playoffs. Its a big game for Crystal River and a big game for us; with a loss, its over for us, Beasley explained. That means the Tigers will have to establish its offense early, and defensively, keep the Pirates attack at bay. Beasley, whose team is fresh off a 51-7 shelling of Belleview, knows it wont be as easy; however, he certainly knows his teams Tigers JV dismantles Belleview, 38-14, to end season Needing a victory to finish the season with a winning record, the Dunnellon High School junior varsity football team ended the season Thursday, Oct. 20, in explosive style, grabbing the Belleview Rattlers by the tail and devouring them, 3814. We executed our blocking, and running this game, Dunnellon coach Archie Smith said. From the opening drive we had enthusiasm and effort from everyone. Dunnellons offense clicked from the opening drive, gaining back-toback first downs, before Jordon Williams scored after taking a hand off from quarterback Tyler Powell. The Tigers attempt to convert on the 2point try failed, but with 8:55 remaining, Dunnellon lead 6-0. Belleviews offense was stymied by the Tigers defense on its first drive, as the Rattlers were forced to punt. With the ball back in its hands, Dunnellon wasted little time finding the end zone, scoring against and converting the 2-point attempt for a 14-0 lead. The Rattlers sought revenge, marching the ball down field. But the Tigers Ladarius Thomas thwarted the drive, intercepting an errant pass and returning the 50 yards for a touchdown with 1:16 remaining in the opening half. The Tigers failed to make the DREW RONDEAU/For the Riverland NewsDunnellons Laduirus Thomas (1) carries the ball downfield Thursday against Belleview as teammate Anthony Small (10) serves as his lead blocker. Thomas returned an interception during the first quarter of the Tigers 38-14 victory. DUNNELLON VS. CRYSTAL RIVER WHEN/WHERE: 7:30 p.m. Friday at Ned Love Field. RECORDS: Dunnellon 4-3 overall, 1-1 District 5A-5; Crystal River 34, 0-2.

Overall, the Pirates had 340 yards of offense in their overtime loss to the Rams. DHS closes out year with back-to-back victories AMANDA BARNEY For the Riverland News See SEASON page 19 Golfers season comes to end OCALA Despite a less-than-stellar performance by Chelsea Domineys standards Monday at the Region 1A3 Championship at Golden Hills Golf and Turf Club, please excuse the senior standout if shes not overly disappointed by her overall performance this season on the fairways throughout the area. For the better part of the year, she competed against boys. However, when it mattered most, Dominey proved she could compete against the best, whether it was against the field in Marion County or against District 1A-3 opponents. She finished in the top eight in the county, earning all-county honors. She followed that performance up by shooting a 90 in the District 1A-3 Championships Oct. 17 at the Abby Course at St. Leos University, securing one of three spot allotted to individual golfers not part of a qualifying team. Not bad for someone who hadnt played competitive golf since she was a sixth-grader. I ended up not doing as well as i wanted to (Monday), she said of her Region 1A-3 performance in which she shot a 107. I really did not think I was going to do as well as I have been, though. Golf is just something I have always done, but never as a serious sport up until this year. On the boys side, junior Ryan Molloy fired an 87, two strokes better than his District 1A-3 performance at Southern Woods Golf & Country Club in which he also secured one of three spot given to an individual not part of the qualifying team.

DHS volleyball bumped from district tournament BROOKSVILLE The Crystal River High School volleyball team (15-10 overall) took down Dunnellon High School (2-17 overall) in three games Monday afternoon in the first round of the 5A2 District 7 Tournament at Nature Coast Technical School. We really have to play well against Tavares because we split with them and both (matches) went to 5, Crystal River head coach Mike Ridley said. The Pirates, who brought up two junior varsity players to start the match, had a thrilling start to Game 1 when they went up 7-0 against the Lady Tigers with Casidy Newcomer at the serving position. Nineteen of the teams 25 points occurred with Newcomer serving, including five aces from the junior. Dunnellon came back and tied the game at 13all, but a pass out of bounds sided them out. The Pirates took control and scored 12 unanswered points to win 2513. The Tigers picked up The voice resonates throughout the stadium or gymnasium, depending on the season. And the voice is all too familiar, especially if you follow Tiger athletics. Well before the lights come up and the kicker puts toe to leather, Tim Urshan has been perched inside of the press box overseeing pregame activities. But once the microphone turns on and the volume is turned up, you know where youre at. Welcome to Ned Love Field. For the past nine years, maybe 10, as Urshan describes it, hes been the voice of Tiger athletics, whether its Friday night football games, basketball in the winter or baseball in the spring, hes been there. But like most athletes, Urshan got his start in the youth football program, announcing games for Pop Warner Football while his son, now 24, and daughter were participating in the program. Really, I have to give Eddie DeWitt and a few others, as well as Robert Williams the credit, he explained. We were trying to start up our Pop Warner League here in Dunnellon, and to make a long story short, everyone was volunteering to coach, run the concession stand and help with cheerleading. I asked them if they had anyone to announce the games. I got elected and they all told me Id be great. Thats where it came in; nobody had even thought about that. I had always wanted I guess you could say it was always a dream of mine to say the least to do it. Preparing wasnt so difficult. A former pastor in the area, he was used to standing at a pulpit speaking to folks. Urshan credits listening to Gators games during Pop Warner contests for helping him sharpen his skills as a public address announcer. As a child, he would listen to his father, a preacher, do sermons for radio broadcasts. I always loved radio, I was always fascinated with it, he CAITLIN JUNGWIRTH/For the Riverland NewsTim Urshan is perched inside of the press box calling the Tigers game against South Sumter earlier this season. Urshan serves essential role as public address announcer at DHS games JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Chicas, Pike top runners at pair of meets The Dunnellon High School cross country team hosted its lone home meet Monday, Oct. 17, competing against Williston, Chiefland and Brandford. The meet was a huge success, despite the course being shorter than usual. The course was run across the street from the school in Sateke Village. The boys and girls ran at the same time. On the boys side, Victor Chicas claimed the victory, finishing with a time of 15:34, beating the second-place finisher by more than two minutes. Dillon Lamb was Dunnellons second male runner to finish. On the girls side, Courtney Pike finished first for Dunnellon with a time of 22:10, followed by Brittany Lakhani. Many runners shaved seconds off their times, but Natalie Cote finished more than five minutes ahead of her previous time. The cross country teams competed again Saturday at the Whispering Pines Invitational at Whispering Pines Park in Inverness. In a much larger pack, Chicas placed third, one second behind Belleviews Boston Fitzpatrick with 16:59. Courtney Pike finished 49th with a 24:46. The cross country teams competed Wednesday, Oct. 26, at Belleview. Results were not available at press time. The teams will compete at the district championships Saturday, Nov. 5, at The Villages High School.

spirits were lifted by their performance against the Rattlers. It was really big for us, he said of his offenses 39point outburst against Belleview in which five different players found the end zone. We just really needed that, to get some other guys in the end zone. Weve just been laboring to score points; it was good for us to go out and execute. We just have to make sure that we continue to execute this week; make sure that we can grind it out with them. Im pretty its going to be a pretty quickly played game; well try and limit their possessions and get something done. Getting something done will likely fall on the shoulders of JVon Swoll, Joe Reyes, Wesley Beasley, Jordon Boley, the Tigers offensive line and other offensive weapons. Dunnellon rolled up an impressive 448 yards of offense against Belleview, 348 of which came on the ground. Swoll had two rushing touchdowns while Reyes and A.J. Basso also found the end zone. Boley, the junior signal caller, threw two touchdown passes, one each to Wesley Beasley and receiver Andre Jackson, whose 17-yard scoring reception was his first of the season. Boley finished the game 6-for-10 passing for 100 yards. However, it was the lack of turnovers that Frank Beasley emphasized as a critical. We didnt put the ball on the ground, he said. We didnt have those mental errors that have been costly. We created some good field position for ourselves; controlled the line of scrimmage. We executed our offense pretty well. Joe and JVonn played really, really well. Those kids are going to be asked to do it again this week; were going to put a lot on all of our kids this week. Frank Beasley felt his team did exactly what it should have done two weeks after a critical 21-7 loss against Santa Fe in which the Tigers turned the ball over five times, including three in the fourth quarter, trailing 14-7. Thats what you do that after a loss that really sits in you not very well, Beasley explained. We really left points on the field against Santa Fe and we dont want to have that happen again to us. Its an emotional game, you have to expect good things to happen. 2-point conversion, but lead 20-0. Belleview finally struck on the ensuing kick off, returning it for a touchdown on the next play and cutting the Tigers lead to 20-7 before the half. Not to be outdone, Dunnellons Kane Parks returned the Rattlers ensuing kick off for a touchdown as Brandon Smith converted the 2point try, giving the Tigers a 28-7 half-time lead. All I could think at half time was we needed to keep playing hard. We started the game off good and needed to keep it going, Powell explained. Powell did his part in the second half, intercepting another Rattler pass and returning it for a touchdown, as the Tigers converted the 2point attempt and extended their lead to 36-7 with 4:59 remaining in the third quarter. Belleview struck one last time, but it proved to be too little, too late when the Rattlers converted a fourth-and-long to cut their deficit to 3814 with 6:57 remaining in the game. We did what we were supposed to do and kept our heads high, Smith said. I am proud of how we ended the season strong and proud.

The Tigers offense, limited to 20 points in a twogame losing streak, exploded for 39 points in their 51-7 romp of the hapless Rattlers. Dunnellon (4-3 overall, 1-1 District 5A-5) scored on six of eight offensive possessions against Belleview, which has now yielded 170 points in three district games this year with two remaining. However, the Tigers offense wasnt the lone unit to do damage on the scoreboard. Dunnellon defensive lineman Keiwan Jones returned a fumble 11 yards after Belleview turned the ball over on its second offensive possession of the contest. Defensively, the Tigers were stout against the Rattlers, holding Belleview to 104 yards of total offense, including 43 in the first half. Dunnellon forced four turnovers, including three in the first quarter when the Tigers staked themselves to a 260 lead. Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley felt pressuring the Rattlers young offense early and often could lead to some turnovers. We really felt like we could take advantage of their youth, said Beasley, whose team was the third district team to hang 50 or more points on Belleview this season. On the Rattlers second offensive series of the game, the Tigers special teams got in on the act, partially blocking a punt that Chris Rossi recovered and returned 47 yards for a touchdown, extending Dunnellons lead to 13-0 with 5:56 remaining in the opening quarter. From there it was the Tigers offensive unit that did the remainder of the damage against the Rattlers, who had little bite. Dunnellon rolled up 448 yards of total offense, including 348 rushing as the Tigers had five different players score against the Belleview defense. Running back JVon Swoll rushed for 103 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries to lead the Tigers. Joe Reyes (94 yards rushing) and A.J. Basso also scored on the ground for Dunnellon. Tiger quarterback Jordon Boley was 6-for-10 for 100 yards and two touchdowns. Wesley Beasley had three catches for 68 yards including a 27-yard touchdown reception while receiver Andre Jackson had a 17-yard scoring catch, his first of the season. It was really big for us to go out and score some points, Beasley said. We just really needed that, to get some other guys in the end zone. Weve just been laboring to score points. It was good for us to go out and execute. Dunnellon plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday at home against Crystal River.

It kind of grew on me. I always enjoyed sports, I didnt get to play much, I just thoroughly enjoy doing it. However, its certainly not the end of the story. During the final two or three years of Perry Browns coaching tenure at Dunnellon High, Urshans served as the public address announcer. Hes been doing it ever since current coach Frank Beasley took over seven years ago. Its awesome, its really neat what he does, Beasley said of Urshan. Tim doesnt ask for anything, and he spends a lot of time learning a lot about our kids. He comes in to the coaches office, sits with us. He wants to know the ins and outs of the program. Hes like a part of our staff. Hell come get our rosters as well as the other teams; hell make sure he pronounces names right. How often do you find that? Tim goes way above and beyond whats called for. Urshan said its just part of the job. In all honesty, the biggest thing is, after these kids graduate, some go off to college, he said. And they continue with that, but they come back and make time to come up and say something to me. Those kids are out there, playing football, putting their body at risk for something they love. For the love of the sport, and I like to give them a level of respect, so to speak. Because of their athletic ability, I like to give them a little bit of love and respect. Its important, I get to know them; thats how it goes. Its a mutual respect. I appreciate tremendously what they do. They unite a community. Count Beasley as a fan when Urshan is behind the microphone. I really like that Tim announces our game, he said. Our kids love it. He has his own unique way of doing it. Other people really appreciate it. He always includes information, such as someones birthday and Ill just ask myself, whered he get that from. Hes such a crucial part of our program and Friday night football. Theres never any doubt about whos going to be calling the games either. Were used to Tim being here, the seventh-year head coach explained. And hes never missed a game during that entire time. Ushsan continues doing it for one simple reason. I love doing it, I absolutely love doing it, he explained. Thats it. their defense and even took a brief lead in Game 2, but couldnt avoid attack errors. They ultimately fell behind and lost 25-14. Because of some lineup experiments by Ridley, Crystal River sputtered a little in Game 3, allowing Dunnellon outside hitter Nicole Drew to score a kill and an ace to give the Tigers a onepoint lead. But a short serve by Drew gave the ball back to senior Megan Unverdorben, who answered with an ace and put the Pirates up again. They won 2516, putting an end to Dunnellons season. I think we played really well (this year) considering our competition, Tigers coach Karen Noffsinger said. A lot of our competitors play a lot of club ball year-round, and our goal is to get that going at Dunnellon. Crystal River senior Ashley Allen led the team with eight kills for the Pirates offense and Emily Laga completed one ace and 21 digs defensively. Senior Morgan Rea had 13 setting assists, two digs and two blocks. Dunnellons Abby Hatfield had eight service points for team. I have confidence in all 12 of my players any one of them can go out there and play, Ridley said. 20 Riverland News, Thursday, October 27, 2011 643044F1 Call Linda at 489-2731 to Advertise INFORMATION HOUSEHOLD SERVICES Changes of LifeHome Services, Inc.

A 20-year-old Dunnellon man faces several charges, including fleeing and eluding, after leading Marion County Sheriffs deputies on a chase that reached speeds of up to 110 mph along State Road 40 and U.S. 41 into Chatmire early Monday morning. Eric D. Humbert Jr. was charged with fleeing and eluding, resisting without violence, possession of marijuana, less than 20 grams, and driving without a valid drivers license. Its the second time in less than a month, according to sheriffs office records, Humbert has being charged with fleeing and eluding. Overall, its the third time in two years, according to arrest records on the sheriffs office website, Humbert has been charged with fleeing and eluding police. According to the sheriffs office website, Humbert was charged Oct. 3 with fleeing and eluding, failing to obey a law enforcement officers order to stop and driving while license suspended/revoked, stemming from a chase he lead authorities on Aug. 29, along County Road 484, south on State Road 200 and into Citrus County. In November 2009, Humbert was also charged for fleeing and eluding, operating a motor vehicle without a valid license, resisting without violence, violation or parole (possession of cocaine) and violation of parole (sale of cocaine). That incident, according to reports, occurred at County Road 484 and Southwest 180th Avenue. According to Mondays report, a Former city employee, councilwoman Young dies Current City Clerk Dawn Bowne recalls the first time she ever got into trouble as a city employee. Bowne was cross-training with Ann Young, who was about to retire as assistant city clerk, a position which Bowne was slated to take over. During the transition period, Bowne was learning the ropes in employee payroll. The city had just made the transition to printed checks, having replaced the longtime era of handwriting employee checks. There was a space where whoever did payroll checks could make a note, Bowne said. It also happened to be during the time the city had just begun to promote its recycling program the thenCity Council had adopted as an ordinance. The memo read: Dont forget to recycle your white trash. I was in my early 20s and she asked what I thought about it, Bowne explained. We both thought it was pretty funny and pretty harmless.

Bryant says shell continue to work on issue At first with little fanfare, and then with some conciliatory comments, the Marion County Commission made it official Tuesday, Oct. 18 the proposed communication merger has been rejected by the city of Ocala. An agreement had supposedly been reached to combine the dispatch services of the county and the city, lessening the need for transferring emergency calls from the original 911 call-taker, but the city backed out after an emotional meeting in which officials learned that a prominent employee had been told he was losing his job. The county commissioners didnt comment as they accepted a letter from the city negating a previous agreement, but shortly after, under commissioners comments, the subject came up. Chairman Stan McClain noted, We have to continue to work on that government is going to have to change the way it operates. He suggested a joint meeting with the city early next year. We have to continue to try. Commissioner Mike Amsden noted that there was already some common ground on the issues, and he noted examples such as ambulances, animal control, etc. Sometimes passion overlooks common sense of the issue. Commissioner Carl Zalak commented, Its not about us, its about the community. Commissioner Kathy Bryant, who received praise from her fellow commissioners for her efforts, said she would keep working at the merger. I havent given up. In other business, the county delayed an appointment to a housing board because one of the applicants had checked yes on an application where it asked if he had ever been convicted of a felony. The form didnt ask for any more information than that, and commissioners felt they needed more details. The county also set a Scenic Roads ordinance public hearing for Nov. 15. The county will also host a public workshop at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 29, to discuss the master plan at the DunnellonMarion County Airport. feral pig and red or gray fox. Halpata Tastanaki Preserve, named after Seminole Chief Alligator, contains the site of the largest battle of the Second Seminole War in 1836. General Edmund P. Gaines, with his force of 1,100 looking to strike the Seminoles in their stronghold Cove of the Withlacoochee, met between 1,000 to 1,500 Seminoles under Chief Osceola and Micanopy on Feb. 27, 1836. Continuing along the river, Gaines reached a peninsula on Feb. 28. While the troops were trying to cross the river, the Seminoles fired, striking and mortally wounding Lt. James Izard. Gaines forces fell back and constructed a breastwork (Camp Izard) and were low on rations. They had to resort to eating their own horses while under siege. During the siege, the Seminoles tried to turn Gaines command out by setting fire to the brush outside the fortification, and Gaines himself was struck by a musket ball that cost him two of his lower teeth. After a week of withstanding Seminole attacks with musket and cannon, On March 6, 1836, the Seminoles were chased off by reinforcements from Fort Drane commanded by Gen. Duncan L. Clinch. Clinch was unaware Gaines was holding possible peace negotiations with Seminole leaders at the time, and his actions negated any hope for peace. The fort would only be used briefly during the rest of the war. It is unclear whether Izards remains were moved to St. Augustine after the war in 1842, or if they are still there. The actual site of Camp Izard is restricted to certain personnel, but there are plans for a possible educational museum.

Marion County Sheriffs deputy was traveling westbound on State Road 40 when he observed a white two-door vehicle traveling westbound in the left lane, straddling the solid yellow line. The deputy got behind the vehicle in an attempt to obtain a driving pattern due to the suspicion the driver may possibly be under the influence, the report stated. At this time, the driver changed lanes and the deputy moved behind the vehicle and activated his emergency lights. According to the report, the driver sped up and failed to stop at which time the deputy activated his siren as Humbert continued westbound on S.R. 40 toward Dunnellon at a high rate of speed of 110 mph. The deputy initiated a pursuit at which time other units responded including Officer Mike Miley and Cpl. Carolina Rolfes from the Dunnellon Police Department, the report stated. According to the report, the pursuit continued toward U.S. 41, where stop sticks were set up in the area of S.R. 40 and U.S. 41. Humbert hit the stop sticks, flattening both driver-side tires, the report stated. Humbert then made a left turn onto U.S. 41 and drove south on U.S. 41 in which both deputies and personnel from Dunnellon continued pursuing Humbert into the Chatmire area, where Humbert jumped out of the vehicle in the area of 109th and Martin Luther King Terrace where a deputy gave chase and several commands to stop. However, the report stated, Humbert kept running and the deputy lost sight of him, but provided a description of Humbert over the radio to other law enforcement personnel. At this time, the report stated, a K-9 unit responded and conducted a track for Humbert, who was later found at a friends residence. According to the report, a a friend said he loaned Humbert his vehicle to go to the store. At press time Tuesday, Humbert was being held at the Marion County Jail with bail set at $6,500. Saturation patrols set for Friday, Monday As party-going ghosts and goblins celebrate Halloween this October, Dunnellon Police Department reminds everyone to keep the party off the road. 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.

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 trash both pose potential safety and health hazards. Four days after the first TakeBack event in September 2010, Congress passed the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an ultimate user of controlled substance medications to dispose of them by delivering them to entities authorized by the Attorney General to accept them. The Act also allows the Attorney General to authorize long term care facilities to dispose of their residents controlled substances in certain instances. DEA has begun drafting regulations to implement the Act, a process that can take as long as 24 months. Until new regulations are in place, local law enforcement agencies like Dunnellon Police Department and the DEA will continue to hold prescription drug take-back events every few months. For more information regarding National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, contact Officer Shane Yox at 352-465-8510 or email syox@dunnellonpd.org.

Congressman Nugent, right, visits with patient Gordon Deas as Nikki Denman looks on. The lengths that DaVita goes to to ensure a family and patient-centered approach is striking, said Rep. Nugent. They focus not just on quality of health but quality of life and thats what makes the difference. The staff is motivated by the people they are caring for and its clear the moment you walk in the door. More than 31 million Americans are affected by Chronice Kidney Disease (CKD), most of whom are unaware they are affected by the disease. The chance that an American adult has CKD is nearly 12 times greater than an American womans risk of getting breast cancer. High risk groups include African-Americans, Hispanics, Pacific Islanders, Native Americans and seniors (those 60 and over). Primary risk factors include diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease or a family history of these conditions.

River views I turn 50 in December. This means the inevitable is coming. I am not thinking about death. No, it is another unpleasant inevitable. I dont like saying it because it is a word old ladies use. I find it hard to say menopause because I am only 24 in my head. That is not a topic a 24year-old would think about. I was telling a friend I was not looking forward to living with hot flashes for the next 30 years. Since she has experience with this issue, she suggested I try an herbal supplement, which suppresses hot flashes. I figured why not get a head start and see how it works. So I did what any college-educated woman would do. I self medicated. Did I do any research? No, I dont need no stinkin research! I hit Sweet Bay and found a vitamin for women in their prime (cough, cough) and the suggested supplement. Life is good. I am as happy as a clam. (Are clams happy? How can you tell?). Then it hits me. One day I am at the post office buying stamps. Oh, look its sweet puppies and kitties. Sniffle, sniffle. Arent you the cutest little wobbie bear! Boo Who! I start sobbing over a puppy stamp. I run to my car and use half a box of tissues. What was that all about? A few days later, I am vacuuming and I vacuumed a small stuffed bird my sister gave me. I fell on the floor sobbing. I killed my bird! The fact that I was vacuuming should have been a warning sign. Something was wrong. The mood swings were killing me. I could no longer watch TV. I cried over the Geico commercials. In between the crying jags, I wanted to kill anyone who annoyed me. The conversation in my head went something like this. Did you just say hello to me? How dare you say hello! Cant you see I am not in the mood to say hello? Life stinks! Why would I want to say hello? Breathe deep, Wallace. Youre losing it and you need to stay calm. To make matters worse, I was beginning to get to know a really great guy. Hes smart, funny and sweet. I was borderline stalking the guy. I couldnt stop myself. I was a mixture of a dog in heat and a wolf salivating over a lamb. This guy Parents placing children at risk Just a big ol scaredy cat Q uick, whats the first thing you think of when I say witches, ghosts and goblins? Halloween? Fun? Thrills and Chills? Well, I say, no thanks. For you see, Im just a big ole scaredy-cat, a chicken, a downright wimp when it comes to anything that can cause terror or fear. If you say fright, I say good night. With Halloween right around the corner, thoughts are turning to anything and everything that will scare the pants off of people. But the only part of trick or treat that I like is the candy. I can hardly bring myself to walk through the costume aisle at the local store. All those bloody, one-eyed ghoul masks staring back at me. Thank goodness my grandchildren always choose superheroes to portray. I can handle that. Ive never been inside a Haunted House, never went to Halloween Horror Nights and never wanted to be scared so badly that I wet my pants. My family knows all about my big secret. When I was a child, there were no DVD players or Redbox machines and popular movies were available on television once a year, so The Wizard of Oz was something we looked forward to. But when it would come on, I would make both my brothers sit right beside me and they couldnt leave until the movie was over. I mean come on: witches, wild monkeys, munchkins and one mean old neighbor lady it doesnt get any scarier than that. My brothers bedroom was up in the attic. A big, dark, scary attic. How I hated going up there by myself. It wasnt until years later that I told my mother about the witch that lived up there that I would see only when I was alone. She never came out when my family was around. Oh, the imagination of an 8year-old child. The scariest movie Ive ever seen is The Exorcist. Now I have no idea how my husband even got me to watch it. However, the rest of the night his head kept spinning around and I kept waiting for projectile vomit to spew out of him. Jaws kept me out of the water for years, same with cars after watching Christine. Dont even get me started on The Birds. And while everybody else is lusting after Edward and Jacob, Im simply looking over my shoulder waiting for some big creepy thing to jump out and bite me. Nope, I never saw The Shining or Silence of the Lambs, but you can scare me just by talking about them. Does this make me weird? Im not sure. However, I did marry the only other person in the world that hates scary movies as much as I do. So I guess thats a plus. Give me a romantic comedy any day and my spouse prefers action flicks, but some of them scare me, so I guess I am one step more scaredy-cat than him. But you wont find any Freddie or Jason in this house, and I can promise you Im not going to be the girl that goes into the cellar because she hears a noise or goes outside because the dog is barking. No, you can bet that Ill be too busy looking for my car keys and finding a way out of town. Im also a big chicken when it comes to traveling somewhere new by myself, but lets save that confession for another day. Happy Halloween, everyone! The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

Honestly, Im not really sure many folks pay much attention to the name of the column; theyre reading what the columnist is ranting about for the week. But I must admit Ive always taken pride in just how the title of my column came about. Sure Ive thought about changing it throughout the past 11 years since relocating from Kansas. I wasnt even a year into my first professional job when my then-editor Chris Wessel decided we should have a communitywide contest to give the public a chance to name my column. I was hesitant to say the least since I grew up in the town and most folks knew me because they knew my parents, especially my father, a career firefighter. Needless to say some of the choices were interesting; others off the wall; and others paying homage to my linage. I encouraged my boss at the time to go with the safe selection. I cannot even recall what we chose. During my time at our tri-weekly paper we were locked in a battle with the longtime hometown daily newspaper. Now please understand their staff of editorial folks had no ties to the community; they all came from other areas across the United States. Our news staff was 100 percent local; we had a vested interest in our community and what direction community leaders wanted to go. I, on the other hand, was busy covering sports at our three local high schools and the college. And I did a pretty bang up job making the rounds. A lot of the athletes I knew well having gone to school with their older brothers, sisters or cousins; some I knew from their days as a pool rat while working as a lifeguard. Needless to say a parent had questioned the sports editor of the local newspaper why he couldnt do a better job of covering the local prep sports. The sports editor chronicled the encounter in a column; as if a member of the mafia has threatened to break his legs. As he rambled on in his column, he explained how hard it was to do so much as he was just one person. Midway through his woe is me speech, he explained how the parent had brought my name into the conversation. The columnist then made his case: Dont compare me to that other guy; as far as Im concerned there is no How editor became The Other Guy N ew parents can drive themselves crazy trying to avoid making mistakes with their babies. Some issues are relatively benign. But some are so serious that they have repercussions far beyond a specific household. You might wonder what individual child-rearing decision can affect entire communities? Its the decision some parents have been making to reject or delay the childhood vaccinations that are recommended by our countrys preeminent medical and physician associations and agencies. The Internet is rife with incendiary anecdotes about children experiencing negative reactions after vaccination and with righteous holding-forth from parents apparently convinced that vaccinations promote disease rather than control it. A particularly insidious belief is about a link between vaccines and autism an allegation thats been traced to a single fraudulent report and disproved soundly in the scientific literature. In addition, some new parents dismiss the severity of vaccine-preventable diseases. They havent seen these diseases in their lifetimes primarily because of our universal vaccination program, which seems now to be a victim of its own success. They should be asking their parents and grandparents what it was like just 50 or 60 years ago, when polio was a terrifyingly real threat and whooping cough or measles could drive neighborhoods and schools to sickbeds and hospitals. These parents dont seem to understand the chain of infection or the true risk of vaccine-preventable diseases, focusing instead on sensationalized and overblown exhortations about perceived threats of vaccines. The parents act on their own research instead of recommendations from medical authorities based on decades of scientific studies. The facts are simple: An unvaccinated child is at greater risk of catching one of these potentially life-threatening diseases, and also can transmit it throughout the community. There already are reports of pediatricians who will not allow unvaccinated children into their offices. As the CDC says, its like a boat with a small leak: When we started bailing, the boat was filled with water. But we have been bailing fast and hard, and now it is almost dry. We could say, Good. The boat is dry now, so we can throw away the bucket and relax. But the leak hasnt stopped. Before long wed notice a little water seeping in, and soon it might be back up to the same level as when we started. Only eliminating disease can stop the leak. We see outbreaks of measles, chicken pox and whooping cough, among others, when vaccination rates drop. Removing the protection conferred by immunization is like letting the boat refill. Parents need to understand that vaccinations are critically important for both individual and public health.

Yes, I know I do some crazy things, but this behavior was way over the top for me. I talked to my older and wiser sister. She said I need to look at the ingredients of the vitamin and the supplement. There was enough estrogen to make Mother Teresa randy! I was taking mass quantities of estrogen. This explained why in a span of five minutes I would go from crying, contemplating murder and winking at strange men. I was out of control. I learned to never self medicate.

He hit the nail on the head. We rushed into our boss office and ran the suggestion past him. The ladies in our office knew what we were up to as the laughter from his office filtered throughout the building. Of course a good portion of our readers caught on to the change; but the sports editor of the opposing paper never did, or at the least, never tipped his hand. So Ive always taken great pride in being The Other Guy, because hes the guy willing to bust a little tail to get the job done, because a little hard work never hurts.

H ang on to your hats because Romeo Round-Up is fast approaching! The annual event will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. tonight on the Romeo campus. The campus will be transformed into a wonderland of festivities to delight people of all ages. For a $4 necklace, students may trick or treat at 20 doors and play games in the courtyard. Pizza, hot dogs, and drinks will be available for purchase in the cafeteria for those wanting to have dinner on campus. Necklaces are available for purchase at the school, or they can be purchased at the gate for $5. We hope that the entire Dunnellon community comes to visit during this exciting time.

Romeo won the contest with Dunnellon Elementary by collecting almost 1,500 pounds of food. Race to the Top money paid for program No longer will students have to carry around thumb drives, portable hard disks, or multiple user names and passwords for their school work. Thats because a new electronic Student Desktop offered to local high school students streamlines mobile computing with powerful and popular options. Marion County public high school students can now access comprehensive information with a single log-in using their current district-issued user name and password student grades including GPA, class ranking, grade history, FCAT history, ACT and SAT information (college entrance exams), and attendance information. Direct links are also provided for academic information and resources including MAPNET, FAFSA, and FACTS.org in an area known as the Student Information Box. Perhaps most notable, students will now have online access to popular school computer applications including Microsoft Word, Outlook, and PowerPoint for free. Additional computer applications include CCC Video on Demand, Live@edu email, SkyDrive, and Destiny, the districts online library catalogue. Students will automatically access their school web page when clicking on the dashboards browser icon. Already, this Student Desktop is attracting attention from around the state for its comprehensive approach and single log-in feature. So far, 16 school districts have expressed interest in coming to Marion County over the next few weeks to examine the Student Desktop framework. This same framework will in the future provide the backbone to deliver etextbooks instead of the traditional paper textbook. This Student Desktop will also roll out to public elementary and middle school students in the near future. The overall $350k price tag is paid through federal Race to the Top dollars. 6 Riverland News, Thursday, October 27, 2011 0 0 0 9 M G 9 G R A N D O P E N I N G Saturday, Oct. 29 H a y & F e e d H a y & F e e d We are now a proud distributors for Feed and Animal Health Products From 10am 2pm a Seminole Feed Representative will be here to talk about Seminole Feed & Health Products and answer any questions.

And organizers of the second annual Pink Out against Breast Cancer want the community to be a part of the event. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and that means those at Dunnellon High dont want folks forgetting the most important part is awareness. Last year marked the first time schools countywide hosted an event. This year has been no different. The fight against breast cancer begins with awareness, said Jennifer Leeds, event coordinator and activities director at Dunnellon High. As the lights come up at Ned Love Field for the Tigers home finale, the football team and cheerleaders will sport pink. The football team will sport a pink D with a ribbon on it. The football team and the cheerleaders are asking Tiger fans to join them in coming to the game dressed in pink to help show support to the friends and family members within the Dunnellon community who have been affected by breast cancer, Leeds said. What does the Pink Out game mean for students?, Leeds asked It provides an opportunity to have discussion and raise awareness about breast cancer not only at school, but at home as well, she said. This is no longer a disease that only affects a few. The reality is that more and more people, specifically women become victim to this disease. The more we can teach the children and young adults of today about breast cancer, the more hope there is for their tomorrow. Not only does the game mark Dunnellons quest to Pink Out the stadium, it marks Senior Night in which senior athletes from each fall sport will be honored for the commitment the past four years to the sports they played.

RITA HUTTON For the Riverland News Pupils sell 213 Coupons for Education booklets See FAME page 9 Sweet reads For the first time, Dunnellon High School librarians Joan Lourenco and Rebecca Jenkins hosted an Edible Books Competition for the annual Teen Read Week made by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). The YALSA, founded in 1998, encourages teens to read for pleasure and not just because they had to. Mrs. Lourenco has been involved with Teen Read Week for nine years. The Edible Book Competition was brought about by this years theme, Picture It @ Your Library. Mrs. Lourenco came up with the idea for edible books because she felt that it would be a good visual for students to get more involved in reading. Any staff and students were allowed to enter their own works into the competition. They could enter as an individual, a club or as a class group. There were 27 entries with a total of 130 participants. The rules were: the entry must be original and cannot be copyrighted in any form. The entries had to be edible and based on a title, pun or had to depict a literacy element from the book they selected. There was no registration fee, but each entry had to pre-register by Oct. 19. On Friday, Oct. 21, the entries had to be delivered to the media center by 9:30 a.m. in order to be displayed. There were two different types of judging one with actual judges and another where the students got to vote. The judges voted in the morning between 9:45 and 11 while the students voted during lunch. The votes for students were counted by change, one penny counted as one vote. Whichever edible book raised the most money was the winner. All of the proceeds were donated to United Way. The categories the judges voted for were Best Show, Judges Choice Award, Most Realistic, Best Individual, Most Creative, Top Staff, Best Pun, Top Club Entry, and Top Staff Entry. The winners from the judges are as followed: Best Show: Beth Siegal and the Photos by JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsThe Best Show award went to Beth Siegal and the Cafeteria Staff for If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.

Troy Slattery and Julian Abrams, driver engineer, from Dunnellon Fire Rescue recently visited extended day to talk on fire safety at home. Fireman Abrams dressed up in the full gear and showed the children what he wears to fires. When there is a fire alarm at the station, they have three minutes to get dressed! The driver/engineer puts on most of the equipment, but has other duties to perform on the way so saves the last when they arrive at the fire. Lt. Slattery talked about the importance of being extra safe during the upcoming holiday season. People use candles and Christmas tree lights and these are potential fire hazards. He also mentioned how most kitchen fires start on the stove. Also, always unplug your curling irons and blow dryers and dont put them away in a drawer or cabinet until they have cooled off. He talked about Halloween safety. Let your parents check your candy before you eat any of it. He asked the students if they are learning things they dont think they will use later in life. Lt. Slattery told the children how important school is and that every class will make you a better person. In his job, knowing history and social studies helps him know how people might react when the fire truck pulls up to their homes. Science tells him that heat rises to the top and cold air sinks. So the smoke in the house will rise. Music helps him learn different pitches and helps him listen to a fire. Different pitches in the fire mean different things. High-pitched fires are bigger fires. Whistling fires are more volatile. The visit was very informative and interesting for the children. Lt. Slattery wanted to stress this: Encourage parents to work with kids to design their own escape routes. They brought a packet of games containing information about fire safety. They ended their visit by taking the children out to the fire truck and explaining where everything is and its function. The extended-day staff presented Lt. Slattery and Abrams with a gift basket of goodies and a packet of thank you cards from the kids at extended day! Riverland News, Thursday, October 27, 2011 9 0009EMP 0009MUB LOWEST PRICES!

Then-City Clerk Connie Scott didnt agree. Connie walked in and threw the checks down on Anns desk and told us both to fix it, Bowne said. Here I was, shaking in my boots. Ann just said, Yes, maam. But shes the only person who could have gotten away with it. Looking back on it now, its pretty funny, but only Ann could do that. She always tried to get people to laugh. And its just one of many stories Bowne and others recalled about the Young, a veteran city employee who also served as a councilwoman in the 1990s, including two stints as a temporary replacement. Young died Friday, Oct. 21, at the age of 86. Ann was a pleasure to work with, she always had a smile on her face, said Larry Winkler, who served as mayor during Youngs first stint on the City Council. She gave a lot back to the community. One thing I remember, the paper was quick to come down here and cover something when it was negative. Pat was running against the young lady that been on City Council before and was in a lot controversy, because controversy sells newspapers. I remember each time they did a story on Ann, theyd always mention her age, it was Ann Young, 70. They always pointed it out. I used to joke with her that her last name was 70, not Young. She always laughed about it. Young, who was born in West Virginia, moved to Dunnellon in 1963. She was a charter member of Holy Faith Episcopal Church of Dunnellon. Young also served as a Brownie and Girl Scout leader, Sunday school teacher, homeroom mother and volunteer in local schools and community functions. Even her daughter, Nancy Myers, recalled her mothers sense of humor, especially on the night of her Roast/Retirement Party at Rainbow Springs Golf & Country Club. Young had received a pretty dress from her other daughter, Ruthy Young Johnson. At the roast, everyone got up and said nice things and told funny stories about mom, Myers recalled. At the end of the night, she got up at the podium and said thank you all for coming and sharing; that was so touched. Then she told everyone she had one last thing to say, she turned around and pulled up her dress and pinned to her pink bloomers was a handkerchief with the words Kiss My Grits and she panned the whole audience. I was mortified. My daughter, Bre, is asking me why shes showing her bottom. She got a standing ovation, everyone just roared. One time, Bowne said, Young just climbed onto the old antique table at City Hall and danced to her hearts content. Another time, Bowne said, an irate customer went out the door laughing. Annie just looked at him and asked him if hed like to dance, Bowne said. She was a trip. Those are only things that Ann could get away with. After her retirement, Young traveled as much as she could with granddaughter, Bre, Myeres said. They went to Russia, Europe, Alaska, everywhere they could think of. She saved her money and thats what she wanted to do, Myers recalled. Young served under Nita Bowne, Dawns mother-in-law, who said she was more than co-worker. Ann was a very dear friend of mine and my family, Dawn Bowne said. She always had a smile on her face and was a jokster if I ever saw one. She was a great friend who shared much advice with me over the years regarding city life and personal issues, Bowne recalled. Most advice included not taking life too seriously, stay out of the city politics, always put God first and remember to not take your family for granted, make time for your friends and drink at least one beer a day! Myers said in addition to her mothers big sense of humor, her faith was even bigger. What Im going to miss the most is when I could call and go mom youre not going to believe this, Myers said. Shed just say, now now. She was so good at calming you down. Shed tell me not to worry about it, come over and have a bite of lunch. Thats going to the hard part. Even when we took her to the hospital the last time, she was flirting with paramedics, checking to see if they had wedding bands.

Ive quite a few so far, the businesses always come out in support of this, she said of the annual event thats been going on for years. Leisure said the Dunnellon Police Department will be involved again this year, as it has in the past. Not only do the officers and staff set up a table, but help patrol the area while the children are plodding along the course. They watch it pretty good, Leisure said. Its a safe place for them to trick or treat; a nice community event for the kids. Soffe family Haunted House The Soffe Family Haunted House for Kids has been a tradition for more than 25 years, according to Violo Soffe. The first event was in 1983 with 60 visitors, but grew to more than 650 visitors in 2009. The reason behind the event came in the early 1980s when it became a concern to let kids go trick or treating, Soffe said about her then 7and 3year-old children. So I decided to put on a Haunted House for Kids. It was so well received that first year, we planned another one for the following year, and here we are now, over 25 years later and almost 600 more visitors. The concept for the Haunted House, Soffe explained, is to let kids have something else to do plus a party at their home and some safe trick or treating at trusted homes. No one will jump out at the kids, grab or scream at them, Soffe said. Its all low key. With a conventional Haunted House there is a lot of yelling, loud noises and downright terror with the idea of scaring everyone out of their skin. However, now that her son is an adult, he decided to add a twist for adults and teens. He has added a separate area that is a little more intense, from falling trees to ghost walkers, Soffe said without tipping her hand too much. The Soffe family Haunted House for Kids will be from 7 to 10 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31, at 18755 S.W. 60th St., Lake Tropicana, 1 mile north of State Road 40 off of U.S. 41. Admission is free. For more information or directions, call Soffe at 445-0728 or visit Haunted House for Kids on Facebook.

Authority board meetings are generally scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. Once renovations are completed by late November, the Authoritys new mailing address will be: 3600 W. Sovereign Path, Suite 228, Lecanto, FL 34461, and new phone numbers will be 352-527-5795 or 352-527-5796. The fax line will be 352-527-5797. Relocating the Authoritys administrative office and adding contract administrative support for the Authority, decided at the Authoritys September board meeting resulted from changes at Southwest Florida Water Management District where the Authority had been generously provided co-location and staffing support since 2008. Citrus County resident, Nancy H. Smith, AICP, is now under contract to provide administrative support in the Authoritys new administrative office. Authority Executive Director Jack Sullivan said he is very pleased with the direction the Authority and its member governments have taken toward supporting the administrative transition. The Authority will be optimally situated for making water conservation a top priority in the region, he said. Within the past year, the Authority initiated the Regional Residential Irrigation Audit and Education Pilot Program funded in part by Southwest Florida Water Management District, the Coastal Rivers Basin Board and the Withlacoochee River Basin Board, matched by the Authority and participating members. The Authority is coordinating 250 site-specific evaluations of inefficient landscaping practices and irrigation devices. Residential water users with monthly usage in excess of 30,000 gallons are eligible to participate.

EBT Welcome Boars Head Subs Custom Cakes for All Occasions ORDER NOW! Halloween Cookies and Cakes Out to pastor The illusive art of catching up I s it just me, or do others have trouble catching up? Just when it looks like I am almost caught up with some project or my to-do-list, something happens setting me back a few paces. One step forward, as they say and for me 17 steps backward. Or, so it seems. I dont have any problem whatsoever catching a cold. I once even caught a fly in my mouth while preaching, and it is as easy as New York style cheesecake to catch the dickens from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Catching up is another matter all together. Two things happened last week that brought this to my attention. First, I took someone out to lunch. That in itself is not outstanding. My wife tells me I am out to lunch all the time. Have you ever tried to impress someone by taking them out to lunch and insist on paying for lunch? That is exactly what I did this past week. Why I ever try to impress anyone is beyond my wifes wildest imagination, but I try, much to her chagrin. With a couple of hours to spare, my friend called me. Immediately I set into action a plan to meet him at the restaurant for lunch on me. We had a grand time catching up on each others life. Personally, I was thrilled to Catch Up on something. Unfortunately, I thought I was on a roll with ham and cheese. It was delicious to enjoy this brief time if only for a moment, but all good things do end. Things were about to turn ugly. No, someone did not bring me a mirror. Instead, the affable waitress brought me the check. Normally, this would not be a problem. I would accept the check after some friendly banter with the waitress complaining about the amount and threatening not to tip her and she threatening to tell my wife. We all smiled and then it happened. I casually reached around to my back pocket to extract my wallet containing my credit card with which I would pay the check. My back pocket was as empty as a politicians promises. At first, a slight streak of panic raced through my person causing me to freeze in petrifying fear. My first thought, I had someone elses trousers on. But whose? More important, where was the man wearing my trousers? I smiled one of those smiles that says, Oops, Im in trouble but I dont want anyone to know. My friend sensed something was wrong; friends are like that. Looking at me he said, Is anything wrong? Being the truthful person I am, I said, Wrong? What could be wrong? Weve just enjoyed a great time together. No, nothings wrong. Absolutely nothing is wrong. One problem with friends is they always know when you are lying. My friend was no different. He just looked at me and said, OK, whats wrong? I may have trouble catching up but I have no trouble whatsoever being caught with my pants down. Well, maybe not quite down but certainly empty. Nothing is sadder than a man wearing empty trousers. Did you forget your wallet? my friend asked with delight dancing in his eyes. He happily paid the tab but I will never live it down. The second incident also had to do with my wallet. Although this time, I did not forget my wallet. I had an early morning meeting across town. I knew my car was running on fumes but no need to worry. I left the house early enough to stop and gas up. Pulling out of my driveway, I noticed the gas gauge was lower than I remembered it being the night before. A tinge of terror gripped my mind and I earnestly prayed I would get to the gas station on time. I sighed with relief as I approached a gas station. The station had just opened and the sign on the pump informed me I needed to pay for the gas before pumping it. No problem. I ambled in, presented my credit card and purchased $20 worth of gas. There is a good feeling associated with a schedule well in hand. I glanced at my watch and noticed I was two minutes ahead of schedule. With a whistle on my lips and air between my ears, I got into my car and drove away. Two miles later, I glance at the gas gauge and noticed it had not moved. I tapped the gauge and nothing happened. At that time, the car sputtered and coughed ominously. Then, like a bolt of lightening, it struck me. I had paid for the gas and drove away without pumping it into my car. By this time, the car engine stopped and I had just enough momentum to pull to the side of the road. I sat there a few minutes pondering my dilemma. I knew what I had to do but I did not want to do it. Slowly, I picked up my cell phone and dialed the dreaded number. The phone rang and in a moment, I heard myself speaking into the phone, Honey, can you Waiting for my wife to bring a can of gas I thought of a verse of scripture. Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin (James 4:17 KJV). Good intentions must be accompanied with appropriate action. The Rev. James L.

DHS hosts Pirates in critical district showdown Their backs against the wall in the race for one of two spots in the District 5A-5 playoff race, Dunnellon High School coach Frank Beasley and his team know theirs no margin for error Friday night at Ned Love Field when Crystal River High School marches in. The seventh-year head coach also knows the Pirates, fresh off a disheartening overtime district loss, will be just as hungry as his Tigers. Its a big game, a really big game, Beasley said. I really hope our community comes out; its a huge rivalry with huge implications for each team. Theyve got a really good football team. Theyre big, physical and pretty young like us. Theyve got some impressive athletes. Already saddled with one district loss, Dunnellon will likely have to win Friday against the Pirates, a long-time rival. The Tigers will also likely need a victory against North Marion or another teams help to earn a chance to qualify for the Class 5A playoffs. Its a big game for Crystal River and a big game for us; with a loss, its over for us, Beasley explained. That means the Tigers will have to establish its offense early, and defensively, keep the Pirates attack at bay. Beasley, whose team is fresh off a 51-7 shelling of Belleview, knows it wont be as easy; however, he certainly knows his teams Tigers JV dismantles Belleview, 38-14, to end season Needing a victory to finish the season with a winning record, the Dunnellon High School junior varsity football team ended the season Thursday, Oct. 20, in explosive style, grabbing the Belleview Rattlers by the tail and devouring them, 3814. We executed our blocking, and running this game, Dunnellon coach Archie Smith said. From the opening drive we had enthusiasm and effort from everyone. Dunnellons offense clicked from the opening drive, gaining back-toback first downs, before Jordon Williams scored after taking a hand off from quarterback Tyler Powell. The Tigers attempt to convert on the 2point try failed, but with 8:55 remaining, Dunnellon lead 6-0. Belleviews offense was stymied by the Tigers defense on its first drive, as the Rattlers were forced to punt. With the ball back in its hands, Dunnellon wasted little time finding the end zone, scoring against and converting the 2-point attempt for a 14-0 lead. The Rattlers sought revenge, marching the ball down field. But the Tigers Ladarius Thomas thwarted the drive, intercepting an errant pass and returning the 50 yards for a touchdown with 1:16 remaining in the opening half. The Tigers failed to make the DREW RONDEAU/For the Riverland NewsDunnellons Laduirus Thomas (1) carries the ball downfield Thursday against Belleview as teammate Anthony Small (10) serves as his lead blocker. Thomas returned an interception during the first quarter of the Tigers 38-14 victory. DUNNELLON VS. CRYSTAL RIVER WHEN/WHERE: 7:30 p.m. Friday at Ned Love Field. RECORDS: Dunnellon 4-3 overall, 1-1 District 5A-5; Crystal River 34, 0-2. LAST WEEK: Dunnellon routed Belleview, 51-7, in a District 5A-5 showdown; Crystal River lost to Gainesville Eastside, 31-24, in overtime. LAST MEETING: Dunnellon escaped Earl Bramlett Stadium with a 28-20 victory a year ago. PLAYERS TO WATCH: Dunnellon RB J'Von Swoll rushed for 101 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries to lead the Tigers. Joe Reyes added 94 yards rushing and one touchdown, while A.J. Basso scored on a 31-yard run and finished with 48 yards. QB Jordon Boley had 100 yards passing and two touchdowns, one each to RB Wesley Beasley and WR Andre Jackson had a 17-yard scoring catch, his first of the season. Pirate RB Napolean Hutcherson had 152 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries. QB Joe LaFleur had 66 yards rushing and one touchdown as well as 68 yards through the air. Overall, the Pirates had 340 yards of offense in their overtime loss to the Rams. DHS closes out year with back-to-back victories AMANDA BARNEY For the Riverland News See SEASON pa g e 19 Golfers season comes to end OCALA Despite a less-than-stellar performance by Chelsea Domineys standards Monday at the Region 1A3 Championship at Golden Hills Golf and Turf Club, please excuse the senior standout if shes not overly disappointed by her overall performance this season on the fairways throughout the area. For the better part of the year, she competed against boys. However, when it mattered most, Dominey proved she could compete against the best, whether it was against the field in Marion County or against District 1A-3 opponents. She finished in the top eight in the county, earning all-county honors. She followed that performance up by shooting a 90 in the District 1A-3 Championships Oct. 17 at the Abby Course at St. Leos University, securing one of three spot allotted to individual golfers not part of a qualifying team. Not bad for someone who hadnt played competitive golf since she was a sixth-grader. I ended up not doing as well as i wanted to (Monday), she said of her Region 1A-3 performance in which she shot a 107. I really did not think I was going to do as well as I have been, though. Golf is just something I have always done, but never as a serious sport up until this year. On the boys side, junior Ryan Molloy fired an 87, two strokes better than his District 1A-3 performance at Southern Woods Golf & Country Club in which he also secured one of three spot given to an individual not part of the qualifying team.

DHS volleyball bumped from district tournament BROOKSVILLE The Crystal River High School volleyball team (15-10 overall) took down Dunnellon High School (2-17 overall) in three games Monday afternoon in the first round of the 5A2 District 7 Tournament at Nature Coast Technical School. We really have to play well against Tavares because we split with them and both (matches) went to 5, Crystal River head coach Mike Ridley said. The Pirates, who brought up two junior varsity players to start the match, had a thrilling start to Game 1 when they went up 7-0 against the Lady Tigers with Casidy Newcomer at the serving position. Nineteen of the teams 25 points occurred with Newcomer serving, including five aces from the junior. Dunnellon came back and tied the game at 13all, but a pass out of bounds sided them out. The Pirates took control and scored 12 unanswered points to win 2513. The Tigers picked up The voice resonates throughout the stadium or gymnasium, depending on the season. And the voice is all too familiar, especially if you follow Tiger athletics. Well before the lights come up and the kicker puts toe to leather, Tim Urshan has been perched inside of the press box overseeing pregame activities. But once the microphone turns on and the volume is turned up, you know where youre at. Welcome to Ned Love Field. For the past nine years, maybe 10, as Urshan describes it, hes been the voice of Tiger athletics, whether its Friday night football games, basketball in the winter or baseball in the spring, hes been there. But like most athletes, Urshan got his start in the youth football program, announcing games for Pop Warner Football while his son, now 24, and daughter were participating in the program. Really, I have to give Eddie DeWitt and a few others, as well as Robert Williams the credit, he explained. We were trying to start up our Pop Warner League here in Dunnellon, and to make a long story short, everyone was volunteering to coach, run the concession stand and help with cheerleading. I asked them if they had anyone to announce the games. I got elected and they all told me Id be great. Thats where it came in; nobody had even thought about that. I had always wanted I guess you could say it was always a dream of mine to say the least to do it. Preparing wasnt so difficult. A former pastor in the area, he was used to standing at a pulpit speaking to folks. Urshan credits listening to Gators games during Pop Warner contests for helping him sharpen his skills as a public address announcer. As a child, he would listen to his father, a preacher, do sermons for radio broadcasts. I always loved radio, I was always fascinated with it, he CAITLIN JUNGWIRTH/For the Riverland NewsTim Urshan is perched inside of the press box calling the Tigers game against South Sumter earlier this season. Urshan serves essential role as public address announcer at DHS games JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Chicas, Pike top runners at pair of meets The Dunnellon High School cross country team hosted its lone home meet Monday, Oct. 17, competing against Williston, Chiefland and Brandford. The meet was a huge success, despite the course being shorter than usual. The course was run across the street from the school in Sateke Village. The boys and girls ran at the same time. On the boys side, Victor Chicas claimed the victory, finishing with a time of 15:34, beating the second-place finisher by more than two minutes. Dillon Lamb was Dunnellons second male runner to finish. On the girls side, Courtney Pike finished first for Dunnellon with a time of 22:10, followed by Brittany Lakhani. Many runners shaved seconds off their times, but Natalie Cote finished more than five minutes ahead of her previous time. The cross country teams competed again Saturday at the Whispering Pines Invitational at Whispering Pines Park in Inverness. In a much larger pack, Chicas placed third, one second behind Belleviews Boston Fitzpatrick with 16:59. Courtney Pike finished 49th with a 24:46.

spirits were lifted by their performance against the Rattlers. It was really big for us, he said of his offenses 39point outburst against Belleview in which five different players found the end zone. We just really needed that, to get some other guys in the end zone. Weve just been laboring to score points; it was good for us to go out and execute. We just have to make sure that we continue to execute this week; make sure that we can grind it out with them. Im pretty its going to be a pretty quickly played game; well try and limit their possessions and get something done. Getting something done will likely fall on the shoulders of JVon Swoll, Joe Reyes, Wesley Beasley, Jordon Boley, the Tigers offensive line and other offensive weapons. Dunnellon rolled up an impressive 448 yards of offense against Belleview, 348 of which came on the ground. Swoll had two rushing touchdowns while Reyes and A.J. Basso also found the end zone. Boley, the junior signal caller, threw two touchdown passes, one each to Wesley Beasley and receiver Andre Jackson, whose 17-yard scoring reception was his first of the season. Boley finished the game 6-for-10 passing for 100 yards. However, it was the lack of turnovers that Frank Beasley emphasized as a critical. We didnt put the ball on the ground, he said. We didnt have those mental errors that have been costly. We created some good field position for ourselves; controlled the line of scrimmage. We executed our offense pretty well. Joe and JVonn played really, really well. Those kids are going to be asked to do it again this week; were going to put a lot on all of our kids this week. Frank Beasley felt his team did exactly what it should have done two weeks after a critical 21-7 loss against Santa Fe in which the Tigers turned the ball over five times, including three in the fourth quarter, trailing 14-7. Thats what you do that after a loss that really sits in you not very well, Beasley explained. We really left points on the field against Santa Fe and we dont want to have that happen again to us. Its an emotional game, you have to expect good things to happen. 2-point conversion, but lead 20-0. Belleview finally struck on the ensuing kick off, returning it for a touchdown on the next play and cutting the Tigers lead to 20-7 before the half. Not to be outdone, Dunnellons Kane Parks returned the Rattlers ensuing kick off for a touchdown as Brandon Smith converted the 2point try, giving the Tigers a 28-7 half-time lead. All I could think at half time was we needed to keep playing hard. We started the game off good and needed to keep it going, Powell explained. Powell did his part in the second half, intercepting another Rattler pass and returning it for a touchdown, as the Tigers converted the 2point attempt and extended their lead to 36-7 with 4:59 remaining in the third quarter. Belleview struck one last time, but it proved to be too little, too late when the Rattlers converted a fourth-and-long to cut their deficit to 3814 with 6:57 remaining in the game. We did what we were supposed to do and kept our heads high, Smith said. I am proud of how we ended the season strong and proud.

The Tigers offense, limited to 20 points in a twogame losing streak, exploded for 39 points in their 51-7 romp of the hapless Rattlers. Dunnellon (4-3 overall, 1-1 District 5A-5) scored on six of eight offensive possessions against Belleview, which has now yielded 170 points in three district games this year with two remaining. However, the Tigers offense wasnt the lone unit to do damage on the scoreboard. Dunnellon defensive lineman Keiwan Jones returned a fumble 11 yards after Belleview turned the ball over on its second offensive possession of the contest. Defensively, the Tigers were stout against the Rattlers, holding Belleview to 104 yards of total offense, including 43 in the first half. Dunnellon forced four turnovers, including three in the first quarter when the Tigers staked themselves to a 260 lead. Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley felt pressuring the Rattlers young offense early and often could lead to some turnovers. We really felt like we could take advantage of their youth, said Beasley, whose team was the third district team to hang 50 or more points on Belleview this season. On the Rattlers second offensive series of the game, the Tigers special teams got in on the act, partially blocking a punt that Chris Rossi recovered and returned 47 yards for a touchdown, extending Dunnellons lead to 13-0 with 5:56 remaining in the opening quarter. From there it was the Tigers offensive unit that did the remainder of the damage against the Rattlers, who had little bite. Dunnellon rolled up 448 yards of total offense, including 348 rushing as the Tigers had five different players score against the Belleview defense. Running back JVon Swoll rushed for 103 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries to lead the Tigers. Joe Reyes (94 yards rushing) and A.J. Basso also scored on the ground for Dunnellon. Tiger quarterback Jordon Boley was 6-for-10 for 100 yards and two touchdowns. Wesley Beasley had three catches for 68 yards including a 27-yard touchdown reception while receiver Andre Jackson had a 17-yard scoring catch, his first of the season. It was really big for us to go out and score some points, Beasley said. We just really needed that, to get some other guys in the end zone. Weve just been laboring to score points. It was good for us to go out and execute. Dunnellon plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday at home against Crystal River.

It kind of grew on me. I always enjoyed sports, I didnt get to play much, I just thoroughly enjoy doing it. However, its certainly not the end of the story. During the final two or three years of Perry Browns coaching tenure at Dunnellon High, Urshans served as the public address announcer. Hes been doing it ever since current coach Frank Beasley took over seven years ago. Its awesome, its really neat what he does, Beasley said of Urshan. Tim doesnt ask for anything, and he spends a lot of time learning a lot about our kids. He comes in to the coaches office, sits with us. He wants to know the ins and outs of the program. Hes like a part of our staff. Hell come get our rosters as well as the other teams; hell make sure he pronounces names right. How often do you find that? Tim goes way above and beyond whats called for. Urshan said its just part of the job. In all honesty, the biggest thing is, after these kids graduate, some go off to college, he said. And they continue with that, but they come back and make time to come up and say something to me. Those kids are out there, playing football, putting their body at risk for something they love. For the love of the sport, and I like to give them a level of respect, so to speak. Because of their athletic ability, I like to give them a little bit of love and respect. Its important, I get to know them; thats how it goes. Its a mutual respect. I appreciate tremendously what they do. They unite a community. Count Beasley as a fan when Urshan is behind the microphone. I really like that Tim announces our game, he said. Our kids love it. He has his own unique way of doing it. Other people really appreciate it. He always includes information, such as someones birthday and Ill just ask myself, whered he get that from. Hes such a crucial part of our program and Friday night football. Theres never any doubt about whos going to be calling the games either. Were used to Tim being here, the seventh-year head coach explained. And hes never missed a game during that entire time. Ushsan continues doing it for one simple reason. I love doing it, I absolutely love doing it, he explained. Thats it. their defense and even took a brief lead in Game 2, but couldnt avoid attack errors. They ultimately fell behind and lost 25-14. Because of some lineup experiments by Ridley, Crystal River sputtered a little in Game 3, allowing Dunnellon outside hitter Nicole Drew to score a kill and an ace to give the Tigers a onepoint lead. But a short serve by Drew gave the ball back to senior Megan Unverdorben, who answered with an ace and put the Pirates up again. They won 2516, putting an end to Dunnellons season. I think we played really well (this year) considering our competition, Tigers coach Karen Noffsinger said. A lot of our competitors play a lot of club ball year-round, and our goal is to get that going at Dunnellon. Crystal River senior Ashley Allen led the team with eight kills for the Pirates offense and Emily Laga completed one ace and 21 digs defensively. Senior Morgan Rea had 13 setting assists, two digs and two blocks. Dunnellons Abby Hatfield had eight service points for team. I have confidence in all 12 of my players any one of them can go out there and play, Ridley said. 20 Riverland News, Thursday, October 27, 2011 643044F1 Call Linda at 489-2731 to Advertise INFORMATION HOUSEHOLD SERVICES Changes of Life Home Services, Inc.
