City secures loan extension City officials are getting a triple play of good news, as far as Greenlight Dunnellon Communications is concerned. With more than $4.4 million spent toward the launch of Greenlight Dunnellon Communications, bumps in the road and hurdles abound, City Manager Lisa Algiere confirmed Monday that Regions Bank in Orlando has in part agreed to an extension on Bond C. A bond payment of between $800,000 to $900,000 was due this month. However, because of delays in acquiring fiber and a finalized programming line up, the city has no paying customers, just a lengthy waiting list of those interested in services. City Manager Lisa Algiere would not confirm how long of an extension officials are seeking to obtain, but that it was longer than two months. Had the city not gotten the bank to agree to an extension, Algiere said it meant city officials would have to take a close look at the budget to come up with ways to make the payment. They are not concerned about the extension, she said, noting paperwork regarding the extension will likely be finalized soon. In the second good dose of T AKEAIMATR OBINSON R ANCH T RAP & S KEET INGLIS The report of gunfire breaks the silence of a crisp fall morning. The smell of gun powder wafts through the air. Light chatter abounds, so as not to break the concentration of the shooters. Thats how it goes at Robinson Ranch Trap and Skeet Club at 19730 S.E. 127th Terrace in Inglis, nestled off of State Road 40, 1 mile west of Dunnellon. The facility features trap, skeet, five-stand and Fitask shooting. There are seven trap fields in which trap is shot from five stations arranged in arc 16 yards behind the trap house. Targets are thrown at random angles from 40 degrees left to 40 degrees right. Shooters fire five shots from one station, rotates to the right and fires at five more targets until each shooter has completed five rotations and fired at 25 targets. On this particular day, owner Tom Haynes is working with a group of young shooters from the Citrus County Claybusters, a new 4-H club organized in January. Throughout the past 10 months, club members have been coming to Robinson Ranch Trap and Skeet Club to perfect their shooting techniques under the guidance of Haynes or Les Schroll, the clubs supervisor.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Donald Francis Snyder was walking about 9:15 p.m. northbound across the eastbound lanes of State Road 40 while the tractor-trailer, driven by Larrison Monell Parker of Ocala, was traveling east on S.R. 40. The right front portion of the truck collided with Snyder within the eastbound left lane, redirecting Snyder in an easterly direction, the report stated. Upon collision, Snyder was thrown approximately 80 feet, coming to a rest in the left lane facing south, the report stated. Parker swerved left and skidded to a stop in the center median turn lane, coming to a final rest facing east. Snyder was pronounced dead on scene by Marion County Fire & Rescue. The death is the 57 traffic fatality in Marion County this year. Unemployed for a year, a laptop computer sat in Kristi Ferguson-OTooles closet, barely used and almost brand new. My husband kept nagging me to get the laptop out and do something with it, said the 1995 Dunnellon High graduate. Hed bought it for me to use in my previous job and when I lost the job, I quit using it. He told me he didnt buy it for me to just sit there. So finally, the mother of three pulled it out from the closet, turned the power on and stared at the blank document in front of her. Like most folks, she had always dreamed of writing a story. Three children and a full-time job she led a busy sort of life. I never had time before, Ferguson-OToole explained. Now, she had the time, but the 34-year-old wasnt even sure where or how to start. I laid down with the computer, she said. I thought, I have a story, I thought I could write this story. I just knew if I could get the first line started, then I could do the rest. The first line came, the second line came, followed by the first paragraph and Special to the Riverland NewsKristi Ferguson-OToole, a 1995 Dunnellon High graduate, wrote her first book, Under the Moon, in less than a month. A few weeks later, she had a publisher. Now her first book is available online at several websites, including Barnes & Noble and Books-A-Million.

I thought if its stupid, Id be embarrassed. I was well over half way through the book when my son, Elijah, kept asking me what I was doing. I kept telling him it was none of your business. But her 14-year-old second child was persistent. He just kept peeking over my shoulder wanting to know what I was doing, FergusonOToole explained. Finally, I was like, for Gods sake will you leave me alone if I show you what Im doing? He said yes, but I made him promise not to tell a soul. I showed him, brought him up to speed. He was the first one I shared it with. After giving him a crash course on what would eventually be titled Under the Moon, her son was taken aback by what his mother had created. He inspired me to finish it, she said. He stood there watching and listening and when I was done, he said Being a kid I dont know what to say, but Im looking at my mom in her pajamas reading this story and didnt ever know you had something like it in you. Youre reading a story thats awesome. I was like oh crap, I got excited. Here is one person who likes it. So then I revealed to the rest of family what I had been doing. While her husband wasnt particularly excited about the story line, Ferguson OToole said he was supportive throughout the entire writing process. Hes very much a realist, he does not like the genre, she explained, noting he is more interested in nonfiction works. I told him you might not like the work, but you might like the results. Within another two weeks, Ferguson-OToole put the finishing touches on her first book. So by the end of September of this year, she took her completed project and sought out a publisher by doing her research of potential companies that might be interested in her finished work. Ferguson-OToole found four publishing companies to her liking, sending her book off to each one. Each company told her it would be up to three months before theyd be back in touch. So she went back to staring at the blank walls. Then the phone rang. The first publisher came back within two weeks and said they want it, she explained. Leary, shed have to pay a large amount up front, she researched the company. I thought it might be a scam, but then after looking at the company, I realized they didnt want any money and just got really excited and said lets do it, Ferguson-OToole said, noting the same day she signed the contract with Publish America, the second publishing company called and shortly after the third company called, all stating the same thing. We want your book. I thought this cannot be happening, this cannot be real, three companies want my book, she explained. Its not been three months. So I stuck with my gut instinct and went with the first publisher and they told me itd be up to 9 months to see it in print, just sit tight. The next thing I know my mom got an e-mail saying my book is available; I had not even heard about it. Then other friends e-mailed her telling her they saw my book was available. The book, Under the Moon, targets the lonely sort of neglected housewife. Its central characters are a 30-year-old male, Ciaran ORourke, who is a vampire, and a 27-year-old soon-tomother, Helene. Its for a slightly more mature audience, its not a high school drama, FergusonOToole explained, noting that its not like the Twilight series. Im 34, lusting after Edward Cullen (the main character in the Twlight series) just isnt right. Mothers arent going to be able to relate to that. Hes a kid, he probably smells bad. Im not into that sort of thing. The woman in my book doesnt have the best relationship with her parents. She loses her brother who was her best friend, she relocates, shes pregnant, she made a mistake, shes just trying to deal with getting life back on track. As luck would have it, her love interest is a vampire. She has no idea what he is. Hes trying to keep it from her, it was not his choice. Once she finds out, she decides shes going to love him anyway. Theres always dangers involved, quite a few supernatural dangers. Its just to help woman cope with day-to-day routines and get a break from reality. Ferguson-OToole said she based the main character on her husband, who she called her real life hero. The hero is based on my husband, she explained. He came into my life in a very dark period. Despite the recent hype surrounding the popularity of vampires, FergusonOToole explained shes always been interested in the genre. Her fondness for vampires came in the 1980s with the release of The Lost Boys and again in the 1990s when Bram Strokers Dracula was released. I definitely did not steal any ideas, Ferguson-OToole explained. I guess the timing may seem like, maybe it was just fate. I pretty much got the inspiration, again it sounds cheesey, but its based on my husband. He is my hero and I turned him into vampire. The story has always been in (my head). I just had time to get it out. The whole experience has been surreal. It doesnt seem quite right. Im going on a school run and another mom wants me to sign my book. Why do you want me to sign it? Its all been surreal, just a waiting game to see how well it goes. The feedback has been awesome. Ferguson-OToole said shes halfway through her second book and would like to turn the series into a trilogy. She plans to finish the second book, see how well the first book catches on and then plot a third one if necessary. She said her publisher is making a push to see if MSNBC will showcase the book on its morning show or on Bill OReillys nightly broadcast. Shell do her first book signing at the London, Ky., library this weekend. Her book, Under the Moon, is available at www.barnesandnoble.com, www.booksamillion.com, www.amazon.com and Publish Americas home page at www.publishamerica.net. From the early reviews her book has garnered from those who have read it, she hope it sucks them in. Im really nervous about it, she said. Everyone seems to really like it. In one day on Barnes & Nobles website, I went from 35 likes to almost 500. Something good is happening here, I just dont know how far its going to go. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, November 3, 2011 We Have Everything to build your look: CASH FOR GOLD Top Dollar Paid Consignment Consignment 7770 US Hwy 41, Dunnellon 352-465-7224 Tanyacash4gold@aol.com The Bling Bling Bling Bling Boutique Boutique & Brandon Says, Come check out our Designer Bags!

Algiere said the material will be here Monday, Nov. 7. Once its delivered, we have to test it, Algiere said, explaining fiber will have to be run from the Greenlight Communications building housed at the Old Library to its satellite farm on Southwest 180th Avenue, or High School Road as its also known. Once we test it, well establish a deployment schedule and well start announcing deployment of the system. We have to get the back bone, the main fiber down C.R. 484 and U.S. 41. Once we get that done, well be putting fiber into different neighborhoods. Once the testing period is complete, Algiere said, the city will begin offering services to potential customers in mid-December. The program lineup is 99.9 percent complete, Algiere said, noting the city will be able to offer several levels of service, including a Limited Basic Package, an Expanded Basic Package and a Variety Tier Package. A pricing structure has yet to be established for services, as officials are still awaiting results of a $35,000 rate study approved in July and finalized contracts for programming. Once we knew of the delivery date of the fiber, weve been right on schedule, Algiere said. Things are happening real fast, constantly changing. But well be moving right along soon. Still, the establishment and development of Greenlight Communications will not reach as far as officials had anticipated. Initially, the fiber to the home program was planning on extending services as far north as Rainbow Lakes Estates. However, after reviewing the scope of the plan, officials broke the project into several phases. As it stands now, the city will complete Phase I of the project, which includes throughout the city and the Rainbow Springs community. It will extend as far east to Southwest 180th Avenue Road, also known as High School Road or Tiger Trail, and as far north as State Road 40, as far west as River Retreat. While city officials recently touted its fiber to the home program to county officials at its joint meeting Oct. 9 in Ocala, Algiere said extending the fiber all the way to the airport will not happen immediately. Well leave a sufficient amount of fiber at High School Road, that we can extend that far, she said. Rainbow Lakes Estates is part of Phase II, Algiere explained, because officials dont have enough money in Phase I to extend the fiber to the home program that far. She said if theres enough demand, officials will consider extending the communications service that far as long as money is available. The capital costs wouldnt be nearly as much, because we already have the head end equipment, Algiere noted, stressing officials would have to assess where we are in Phase I.

Dick Morton Kiwanis Club of Dunnellon Halpata TastanakiThis past year, the Marion County Audubon Society adopted Halpata Tastanaki Preserve as one of its conservation initiatives with the purpose of conducting several bird surveys during the year to determine what bird species and how many of each species either resides year round on the property or visits the property during migration or become snow birds during the winter. We are joining several of the Southwest Water Management District staff, including the new land manager for the preserve, later this month for a survey of the property and to map out future areas for our bird surveys. The property is currently home to 110 Florida Scrub-jays, a Federally threatened species, that live in various clusters on the site and depend on fire management measures, which maintain the scrub habitat they prefer. This is reported to be one of the largest colonies of Florida Scrub-jays in the state. There are two parking areas to access Halpata for horseback riding or hiking, one off State Road 200 opposite the Spruce Creek golf course, the second entrance is where the sign states Pruitt Trailhead almost opposite the Dunnellon airport on County Road 484. As you approach the parking area, look for Eastern Bluebirds along the fence line on the left Hometown rocked by tragedy Thelma and Louise M y mother and I are always getting into trouble. It doesnt involve cops, handcuffs or bail, but if were together things are bound to go wrong. We dont plan these things, they just happen and its always when just the two of us are together. There was the time we were on our way to a friends funeral and I wasnt familiar with the area. My mom was supposed to be my navigator. Werent we both in for a surprise when we saw the traffic coming right toward us and realized we were driving the wrong way on a one way street. So up on the sidewalk with the car I go. Imagine how fun it was trying to convince the cop that we hadnt been drinking. I guess the worst experience we ever had was the time we went over to the courthouse for a child support hearing. After sitting there all day without so much as a penny of hope, we went outside to find my car was gone. Frantic was not the word as we paced up and down looking for it and wondering what to do. We came to find out it had been towed and was locked up in a lot down the street, all because I parked in a spot that said sovereign parking only. Eighty dollars later we were on our way home, needless to say with no child support and an empty bank account. We didnt tell anybody that story for years. What about the time we went out the wrong exit at the movie theater and got locked in a hallway with no way out. Good thing another lady saw us and came to our rescue, but not before a few minutes of panic. I dont remember if that was the same time we were both mad at our spouses and decided to do a double-header movie and stay gone all day. Coming home seven hours later and feeling very satisfied with ourselves only to find out that neither one of our husbands even realized wed been gone. We laugh about the time I bought five expensive coffee mugs engraved with names of my family, but as soon as we got out of the store we somehow tipped the bag over and all the mugs broke. We laugh about the time we got a flat tire right in front of the sleaziest redneck bar you could find and had to go inside and ask for help. Then, they wanted to buy us a drink and have us stay awhile. Or perhaps the time I straddled the ramp with my car at Soapys carwash and three huge men had to come out and pick the car up. Then there was the time we got lost going to Disney World late at night for the Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Party. Not only did we make my granddaughter cry because we kept saying we were lost, but we got there about half an hour before they closed. The last time we went there together, neither one of us brought enough money and we ended up splitting two hot dog baskets between four people and that was pretty much our dinner for the whole weekend. But we still had fun. Call us Thelma and Louise because when were together theres always an adventure. And although we arent laughing at the time they happen, it ends up being hysterical weeks later when one of us brings it up. My mother, my buddy and my partner in crime.

Even some so-called hardy plants can be vulnerable in colder regions, and exposed gardens. In any garden, all new hardy plants that are not fully established can be damaged, or killed in a prolonged cold spell, while new growth put on in early spring during a period of mild weather is vulnerable to scorch if the weather turns cold even for a short snap. But the main threat to borderline hardy shrubs is winter cold, particularly cold winds that will freeze stems, and can penetrate deep into the soil during a prolonged freeze. In recent years we havent had much in the way of prolonged cold spells, but dont become too settled the weather only obeys Mother Nature, and changes quickly at times. The critical period for protection is from mid-December to the end of February, but be vigilant until the middle of March in this area, and if you have a more exposed garden. Wrapping up Vulnerable specimens can be given an enclosure made from windbreak netting that is lined with garden fleece, while not-so-hardy wall shrubs are insulated from the cold by spreading a sheet of fine-mesh netting over the plants, and stuffing it with insulating material, such as straw, or dry leaves. Alternatively, you could drape the plants with a double layer of garden fleece. Make sure you secure the netting along all sides to prevent it blowing about in windy weather. Insulating the roots Many borderline shrubs and climbers benefit from having their roots protected during prolonged cold spells by covering the surface of the soil with an insulating mulch of dry leaves or compost. This is particularly important while the plant is becoming established during the first few seasons after planting. Use netting to hold an 8-inch-deep layer of autumn leaves, or straw in place, or cover the ground around vulnerable shrubs with a thick mulch of garden compost, or even piles of hedge trimmings. Protect against wind Newly planted evergreen shrubs and trees will suffer during the winter months if they are not given adequate protection, Protect semi-hardy shrubs, climbers U sually, I never turn my phone off, just in case of an emergency. Saturday night, after a long week of work, I crashed, having fallen asleep with my oldest son, Jackson. Thats not to say I slept through the night, I awoke from my slumber and checked the time it was shortly after 1 oclock Sunday morning. I grabbed my phone, hoping I hadnt missed anything major. The text messages came rolling in, from my mother no less: News flash huge explosion at Bartlett Grain, south of town. The headhouse blew. Sirens everywhere. That would be choppers. The second text at 8:58 p.m. read: Update some injuries, one being flown to KU. (Thats the University of Kansas Medical Centers Burn Unit.) A second update followed shortly afterward. Search and rescue coming from Kansas City. I immediately hopped on the computer, scouring the newspaper websites from the area. The photos clearly showed the damage that was done. Daylight would reveal much more. Saturday nights tragedy happened too close to home; the explosion literally shook my parents house, which sits about a mile away from the tragedy that has made national headlines. I recall the only other time a grain elevator in my hometown went boom. It was the 1980s and I was a junior high school student, when one of the big elevators at Midwest Grain Products exploded, bursting open a vertical seem in the middle and sending a heaping pile of grain onto the nearby railroad tracks. My father, still years from retiring as a firefighter, and my mother recalled the explosion that woke them from their sleep. My dad knew full well it wouldnt be long before he was called into work. He got dressed and left. It was an unusual January in Kansas. We had just been enjoying temperatures in the 70s, which made for a nice time. We didnt have cabin fever and the bikes werent collecting dust in the garage. But on the night that elevator at Midwest Grains went kaboom, the temperatures plummeted into the 30s, which made for a trying time battling a blaze on the backside of a sizeable building with no immediate access to the backside of it because of the number of railroad tracks behind it. However, that explosion didnt carry the gravity of the most recent one. No one was injured, none were killed. Folks were mostly freezing cold. I remember my father giving an interview with one of the local news channels; he had icicles frozen on his mustache. It took the guys from the fire department days to warm up. They spent nearly 16 hours on the scene, constantly putting out small fires that would spark. Saturdays tragedy will be felt in my hometown, but other communities as well mourn the loss of loved ones and try to make sense of it all.

R ecently, I needed to make a trip to visit some relatives. These days, the way the economy and gas prices are it turns out to be cheaper to fly. Even though, airlines no longer serve the delicious food of which they became famous. Several aspects about airplanes that give me cause for alarm. The person who designed the modern-day airplane must have used one of the dwarfs for a model. Im thinking, Grumpy. The seats, for example, are not built for the average posterior. I know I need to go on a diet but my airplane seat does not have to remind me of that auspicious fact. The restrooms do not have any room whatsoever to rest in them. The last one I was in I had to step outside in order to change my mind. What were they thinking when they designed and built these restrooms? Personally, I think it is a conspiracy on the part of the entire airline industry to harass those of us who are diminutive challenged. However, I can live with some of these inconveniences. I do not really mind flying it is the airports that I cannot stand. If there were some way to fly the friendly skies and eliminate airports I would be a happy flyer. It has been a while since I flew the friendly skies and so I had forgotten some of the airport rigmarole that paying customers must go through. I am surprised with all of the fees associated with flying these days someone has not come up with the bright idea of charging a fee for everyone to be patted down. In order to get to the airplane you have to go through a very sophisticated technological gateway. I had forgotten how thoroughly they check out their passengers. Everything needs placed into a tray, which then goes through a scanner to make sure nobody is transporting a bomb in his or her baggage. Then comes the dangerous part. Everybody has to take off his or her shoes, which makes the whole airport smell as if some bomb did go off. Not only shoes, but also everybody has to empty their pockets and take off all jewelry. Then, after putting all of my stuff in these trays, I was to walk through an archway to make sure I was not transporting a bomb in my underwear. As I walked through the buzzer went off. Sir, do you have anything in your pockets? I looked and found a pen, so I had to take that out and put in a tray. Again, I walked through and the buzzer went off. Sir, is there anything else in your pockets? My wallet with credit cards and such things, which I did not realize was setting the buzzer off. I placed my wallet into the tray and then walked to the archway again. The buzzer went off again. At this point I was a little confused because I did not know what else I could take off. Therefore, I took off my sweater. Maybe something in the buttons that the archway did not like. Then the man on the other side of the archway spied what he thought was the trouble and said, Sir, you have to take off your suspenders. Say what? I said in alarm. You have to remove your suspenders. I looked at the man and then said, You do know the purpose of suspenders, dont you? With a distant disdain in his voice he simply said, Sir, you will have to remove your suspenders. By the tone of his voice, I ascertained that he did not have the foggiest idea of the purpose of a gentlemans suspenders. I wear suspenders because they are fashionable, comfortable and serve a vital purpose for me. I looked at him and said, Have you ever heard of wardrobe malfunction? Sir, he said in a practiced monotone, you will have to remove your suspenders. I saw no way around this obstacle and if I wanted to get onto the airplane, I would need to go through this archway. Slowly I took off my suspenders and put them in a tray to send through the scanner. The archway buzzer did not go off this time, which was a relief to me, but once I was through the archway things happened. As I reached for the tray on the conveyor, I suddenly felt a gentle breeze, heard several shrieks behind me and felt something grab my ankles. Wardrobe malfunction! Sure, you can grab your trousers and pull them up but you still have to live with the fact that you actually mooned potential fellow passengers on the airplane. I am not sure which is worse: a bomb in your underwear, or, your underwear on display. After adjusting everything and picking up my briefcase, I noticed several people pointing in my direction and laughing. Believe me, a wardrobe malfunction is not anything to laugh at unless of course it happens to someone else. Sitting in the airplane waiting to take off a verse of Scripture dominated my thinking. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace.

Our seventh-grade students in Mrs. Coopers geography class explored the wonderful world of famous Russia jeweler Peter Karl Faberge in connection with their study of the Russian Revolution, the downfall of Czar Nicholas II and the rise of communism in 1917. Students used their textbooks and Internet resources to research the works of Faberge, particularly the Imperial Easter Eggs created by Faberge to commemorate historic and cultural events of the Romanov family. After having the opportunity to view and learn the history of several of the fabulous eggs, students then designed their own Faberge eggs out of construction paper and other classroom materials. The students really enjoyed this enrichment activity and the results were highly creative with each egg having its own surprise inside just like Faberge! Thank you Mrs. Cooper for bringing Faberge to Dunnellon Middle School. DMS has full slate of activities planned ROMEO NEWS Fun at the Fall Festival Romeo Round Up was a huge success with a lot of treats, games, food and excitement! Final totals are yet to be determined, but the fun total was obvious on all faces.

(See related photos, page 12.) Another night of fun is coming to Romeo on Nov. 18. The Romeo Cafeteria will be the sight of a Family Game Night from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Games of every description will be on tables for students to play with their families.

Betsy Davis Dunnellon Michelle-O-Gram fundraiserThe Michelle -O-Gram Fund was recently the benefactor of Racing for a Cure at the Williston Horse Park. Barrel-racing women, clad in pink, came from all over the area for an evening of fun, and prizes, while also recognizing the need to continue the fight against breast cancer. Terri Latner, sales representative for Midwest Feed and Farm Store, along with Purina Feeds organized the Race. Support signs were sold to business and individuals, door prizes were collected and organized for a very successful fundraiser for the Michelle -O-Gram. Elaine Hobbs, E-Graphics, created the signs, local businesses and individuals donated items for the silent auction. The Michelle -O-Gram has assisted more than 110 women so far this year. And, all because of a community that comes together to support a great cause and honor a great young woman who died two years ago from this horrible disease. Words just cannot express the gratitude so many women feel when they realize they no longer have to carry the unknown burden and can receive the needed testing. Without caring individuals, in the community, we could not continue this mission.

Martha Vaughn Chairwoman, Jazz Up Dunnellon LETTERS continued from page 4 especially in the most exposed spots. Being evergreen, they will continue to lose water through transpiration (the loss of water through the foliage), which they have to replace through their roots. Continue to water new evergreens if there is a prolonged spell of dry weather, treating them in much the same way as a winter container plant. Evergreens are also more prone to wind scorch during their early years, so protect exposed plants with a piece of windbreak netting firmly fixed to stout poles. I n s u l ating container s You can protect plants in containers from freezing solid in winter by wrapping the containers in bubble polythene, and moving them to a sheltered spot. You can also cover the topgrowth of susceptible plants, and those of borderline hardiness with a double-layer of garden fleece. Dont forget to make sure that you leave access to water evergreen plants over the winter months. Tracy Jenner, the Riverland Gardener, can be reached at tracyjenner@aol.com.

Chicas finished second at the meet, which featured more than 25 schools. Victor is good, Dunnellon coach Valerie Bazarte said. I spoke to him (Monday) morning.

Dunnellon cross country runners prep for district meet JEFF BRYAN Riverland News For Alex Love, shes entering familiar waters. For her teammates, Madeline Duran, CC and Alora Thompson and Madison Brown, its unchartered territory. But they all share the same goal and focus Saturday when they enter the waters at the Region 2A-2 Swimming and Diving Championships, beginning at 10 a.m. at the Central Florida YMCA Aquatic Complex in Orlando. Swim fast, swim hard and see if they can punch a ticket to the Class 2A Swimming and Diving Championships, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 12, at the Central Florida YMCA Aquatic Center in Orlando. To do so, theres one of two ways, win their event outright or be one of the top 16 fastest swimmers statewide. Love, a senior, qualified in three events the 50 freestyle and is a member of both the 200 and 400 free relay teams, which qualified at last weeks District 2A-4 Swimming and Diving Championships at the OConnell Center at the University of Florida. Love is seeded 19th in the 50 free with a time of 28.14. I was really excited when I found out, she said of qualifying for regionals. Because our district was pretty hard this year. We swim against Eastside, Gainesville, Leesburg, Belleview, theyre all pretty tough. Our relays are definitely going to make finals, but I dont know if well make it state itll be fun to just go and compete. Duran will compete in the 100 fly and 100 back. She is seeded 18th in the fly after posting a time of 1:17.48 in last weeks district meet, while she is seeded 23rd in the 100 back after posing a time of 1:16.82. Along with Love, shell also compete in the 200 and 400 free relay teams. I really am extremely excited about our upcoming meet, Duran said. I feel so proud of our team that we've made it so far. All the girls on the team are wonderful people and awesome swimmers. I can't wait to see how we do this weekend. Sisters CC and Alora Thompson round out the 200 free relay teams. CC Thompson and Madison Brown round out the 400 relay team, which is seeded 15th in the region with a time of 4:29.12. Tigers in must-win game against Colts Theres no need to remind Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley and his team about the importance of Friday nights match-up against North Marion, the Tigers long-time rival. Its all or nothing. A win against the Colts and Dunnellon forces a three-way tie for first place in the District 5A-5 standings, which means North Marion, Dunnellon and Santa Fe would duke it out in a shootout Monday night at Santa Fe. The scenario for a shootout looks like this. If Dunnellon wins Friday night at North Marion and Santa Fe wins Thursday night against Gainesville Eastside, the shootout will be Monday at the Raiders home field. Guess what prize we get if we beat North Marion? Beasley asked. We get North Marion in the first quarter. The winner of that one quarter moves onto play Santa Fe, with the winner clinching the district championship and the runner-up getting the second slot and a coveted playoff spot. However, theres still a chance the Tigers could capture their third straight district championship. Dunnellon would need a win and a DUNNELLON AT NORTH MARION WHEN/WHERE: 7:30 p.m. Friday at Stan Toole Memorial Stadium. RECORDS: Dunnellon 5-3 overall, 2-1 District 5A-5; North Marion 6-2, 4-0. LAST WEEK: Dunnellon knocked off Crystal River, 2414; the Colts shut out Gainesville Eastside, 35-0. WHO TO WATCH: Dunnellon RB Malcom Ross rushed for a season-high for a 133 yards and one touchdown on 23 carries in the Tigers 24-14 victory. RB Bobby Robinson had 10 carries for 85 yards, while he recorded eight tackles on defense. DL Keiwan Jones had eight tackles, two sacks and a fumble recovery, while LB Jeremy Dominey had a 33-yard interception return for a score. North Marion clinched its ninth consecutive playoff berth last week. The Colts were led by RB Jamie Gilmores 157 yards rushing and QB Chase Tutens two TD runs. With a loss, Dunnellon will miss playoffs JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See COLTS page 14 See HARRIERS page 17 Five members of DHS girls swim team regional bound TOP RIGHT: Alex Love prepares for an event earlier this season.

Players praised for their effort The Dunnellon junior varsity football team ended its hectic season with a .500 record (4-4). We didnt play our best every game, but when we did work as a team and focus we pulled off a win, Josh Lange said. The Tigers did exactly that when they defeated Columbia, 18-16; Crystal River, 26-0; Nature Coast, 22-7; and Belleview, 38-14. I want all of you to concentrate on your grades, even though youre not playing well still be watching, assistant coach Faires said. Every guy who came out to practice and was there was a part of every win and I am proud of every single one of you. Even though the JV Tigers worked hard they still had some loses: Forest, 33-8; Westport, 36-28; Trinity, 26-8; and South Sumter, 28-8. The boys met my expectations, I mean a few key plays could have won more games but I am still proud, Dunnellon coach Archie Smith explained. For freshman who are coming up and people who are staying, the way they develop during offseason will determine who will be starting and who will play certain positions. All positions will be open to who can best fit them. Many of the players are excited to get things rolling again. I am looking forward to hopefully being starting quarterback this upcoming year, Levi West, a freshman, said. I am going to play baseball and do weightlifting over the offseason to keep in shape. Varsity head coach Frank Beasley also had a few words for the team after they beat Belleview, 38-14, to close out the season. You guys had a great year, battling around and not giving up, the seventh-year varsity coach said. This year was the toughest schedule we had in about seven years and you guys did great. Good job. The boys will be off for a month or so, until they begin off-season conditioning. Crystal River had its chances, but Dunnellon made sure the Pirates never capitalized on them Friday night at Ned Love Field. Despite committing three turnovers, including one inside the Pirates 5-yard line, and turning the ball over on downs two additional times inside the red zone, the Tigers offense did just enough to keep their playoff hopes alive for one more week with a 24-14 victory against Crystal River. We left a lot of points out on the field, said Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley, whose team improved to 5-3 overall and 2-1 in District 5A-5. Three times we get inside the 20 and we just stall, and then were close to punching one in and we fumble. Dunnellons defense was the story, as the Tigers didnt just stymie the Pirates rushing attack: it stopped it in its tracks. A week after Crystal River running back Napolean Hutcherson rushed for 152 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries in an overtime loss to Gainesville Eastside, the senior standout gained 4 yards on seven carries, all in the first half. QB Joe LaFleur, who had 134 yards of total offense a week ago, had just 21 yards against the Tigers defense, which sacked him five times in the second half. The junior signal caller left in the fourth quarter after he was sacked by Dunnellons Dezmond Crawford. Overall, Crystal River gained 142 yards of offense, more than half of it with the Pirates trailing 24-7 in the fourth quarter. They had a great defensive game plan for us, said Crystal River coach Greg Fowler, whose team dropped to 3-5 overall and 04 in district competition. We didnt have any answers for them. They gave us the most problems of any defense this year. They stopped our running game and it killed us, and they had a great blitz package. Fresh off a 51-7 shelling of Belleview a week ago, the Tigers offense seemed to pick up right where they left off on their opening drive. Dunnellon marched 59 yards in 10 plays, chewing up more than four minutes of time as senior running back Malcom Moss capped the drive with a 3-yard touchdown run. He finished with a seasonhigh 133 yards rushing on 23 carries. The Tigers defense, despite bending on Crystal Rivers opening drive, thwarted the Pirates on a fourth-and-1 from the 14-yard line, as Dunnellons offense went back to work. The Tigers moved the ball into the red zone in eight plays and Riverland News, Thursday, November 3, 2011 11 0 0 0 9 P B G Featuring: 3 Fingered Uncle Playing Top 40 Hits Sunday, Nov. 6, 2011 2-5pm Where: Centennial Park Located behind City Hall on the Withlacoochee River Free Admission Bring a blanket or a lawn chair Parking at City Hall/Boat Ramp Concession stand available (Proceeds benefit Relay for Life...

lined up for a 30-yard field attempt when Dunnellon faked it and attempted to gain a first down or punch it into the end zone. From there, neither team found the end zone for the better portion of the second quarter as the Pirates were forced to punt twice while Dunnellon turned the ball over on downs inside the red zone and fumbled once. The Tigers forced Crystal River into its third punt of the first half with 2:19 remaining in the second quarter. From the Pirates sidelines, the coaching staff let it be known it wanted its defense to come up with a big play, and it did just that, forcing a fumble and recovering it at the 14-yard line. Three plays later, LaFleur found tight end Tyler Burns zipping through the seam of the Tigers defense for a 15yard touchdown reception and knotting the game at 7-all and appearing in good shape knowing it would receive the ball to start the second half. But thats when the Tigers landed a one-two combo the Pirates never recovered from. Buoyed by a short kick off and a return to the Crystal River 43-yard line, Beasley told his offense to go get em baby. Five plays later, Connor Wentz hauled in an 8-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Jordon Boley, as the point after was good, giving the Tigers a 14-7 lead with 33.7 seconds remaining in the opening half. With solid field position at the Dunnellon 40yard line, the Pirates attempted to go to the air to and two plays into Crystal Rivers sixth offensive possession of the half, the Tigers made them pay as linebacker Jeremy Dominey dropped into zone coverage, stepping right in front of Hutcherson and snagging LeFleurs pass and racing 33 yards for a touchdown with 16.4 seconds remaining. The point after was successful, giving Dunnellon a 21-7 lead. I think that changed the momentum of the whole game, Beasley said of scoring twice in the final minute. Jeremy made a great play; he did last year for us. Dominey said he was never concerned with who was chasing him down; his mind was set on getting into the end zone. I wasnt looking behind me, he said. I just kept thinking about how much Ive got to get into the end zone. Dunnellon plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday at North Marion. The Tigers must win to force a three-way tie for first place in the district. They might make the playoffs, well see how it goes for them this weekend, Fowler said. The month of October was a very busy time for the DMS SAVE (Students Against Violence Everywhere) Club. We had a very successful National SAVE Day on Oct. 19 and our fellow students and staff members supported us by wearing orange or purple on that day. The students also created and wore lanyards all day that had an anti-drug, anti-violence or anti-bully slogan or theme and were eager to share with the faculty what they created. The very next week (Oct. 24 to 27) was Red Ribbon Week, which SAVE also sponsored. We had a series of activities all week: Monday Recognition Day. Everyone wore red or red ribbons. We also recognized another one of our local DMS clubs, FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) for its efforts and for sharing the same principles that we do. SAVE members presented FCA advisor Sherri Reddick a certificate and bags of Smarties candies to distribute to her FCA members for making smart choices. Tuesday Decorate a Door Day. All first-block classes decorated their doors with our school theme in mind One School, One Goal, Bully and Drug Free. Wednesday Spirit Day. Everyone was encouraged to wear their favorite team jersey or shirt. Thursday Costume Day and Dance. All students were allowed to wear costumes and enjoy a Halloween dance in the Caf. Along with all of this, we also had a poetry contest and a schoolwide pledge with banners for each grade level to sign pledging to be drug and bully free for the remainder of the year. We are happy to report that everyone at DMS, students and staff alike, really enjoyed the week-long Red Ribbon activities. The next SAVE meeting will be during early release/club day Wednesday, Nov. 9. We will be discussing the upcoming events such as the Angel Tree and the Dunnellon Christmas parade and a December fundraiser (candy grams). Thank you to our parents for your support throughout Red Ribbon week, which was sponsored by the SAVE Club.

A loss and a Sante Fe victory, and all the Tigers get is Williston on Nov. 11 to close out their season. For now, Beasley and his team will know what it needs to do before the Tigers even take the field against the high-powered Colts. Were going to have to control the clock and limit their possessions, Beasley said. This is probably the most talented team theyve had. The Colts are led by running back Jamie Gilmore and quarterback Chase Tuten. Last week against Eastside, Gilmore rushed for 157 yards rushing and Tuten, who recently returned the lineup after an injury, rushed for two touchdowns. The senior signal-caller can also throw the ball as Beasley knows. Hes one of the best tailbacks Ive seen, Beasley said of Gilmore. And they have two or three of the best receivers Ive seen in long time. These guys are good, and their quarterback throws it really well. Youve got to pick your poison. Defensively, Beasley believes his team is playing its best right now. That hasnt been more evident the past two weeks in which Dunnellon has allowed just 21 points. Against Crystal River last Friday, the Tigers recorded five sacks, two interceptions in which linebacker Jeremy Dominey returned for a score, the second straight week in which the Dunnellon defense has returned a turnover for a touchdown. And the blitz package Pirate coach Greg Fowler praised so much? I didnt call one blitz, we just read it and went, Beasley said. We put a couple of different fronts in where it helped our cause a little bit, but were really playing well, were going to have take some chances this week and do some different things, like go for it on fourth-andshort and keep them off the field. That doesnt necessarily mean a lot of trick plays will be thrown at the Colts either. Offensively, were going to do what we do, Beasley explained. We cant ask our kids to do a bunch of stuff we havent asked them to before. I really feel like in big games you go wrong doing that. We just need to keep their offense off the field. That means protecting the ball, especially inside the red zone. Against Crystal River, the Tigers fumbled the ball inside the 5-yard line and twice turned it over on downs inside the 20-yard line. We cant turn the ball over, its been a recurring theme all year, Beasley said.

CHRIS SMITH/For the Riverland NewsVictor Chicas, a standout cross country for Dunnellon competes at a meet earlier this season. ready to run on Saturday and redeem himself. He has tons of pride and heart as you well know. Victor, unless not full strength, should come in first or second. Bazarte said her other runners are young and making progress. I do not know how they might do, she added. Dillon Lamb has the best chance to qualify if he has a good run. Therell be a bit of unfamiliarity for the Tigers Saturday, at least not in terms of the course theyll compete on, but against the competition. We have not raced everyone in our district, Bazarte said. Brittany Lakhani, senior has seen limited action this season due to her dual enrollment classes, but hopes to return to the regionals for the first time since her freshman year, Dunnellon Coach Tracy Young said. Senior Natalie Cote, in her first year of cross country competition, has steadily improved and looks for a strong showing Saturday, Young explained. At the district meet a year ago, she finished 28th with a time of 22:14. Theres also sophomore Courtney Pike, Young said, who continues to display her athletic ability with improving times throughout the season, including the top time on the team. Last year in her first district meet, she finished with a time of 22:52. Courtney has responded to the challenges she has faced and looks to land a spot in the regional, Young said, who expects Crystal River to be the toughest competition, with depth as well as ability. Because of a lack of numbers, the Lady Tigers wont have enough runners to compete as a team. get young people involved in the sport, Haynes said as he kept a watchful eye on the four members of the club present, noting in December a local Boy Scout Troop will be provided lessons. Haynes spends a few minutes helping the youths on tracking their targets, stance and position. He provides Tyler Ogle with additional pointers. Tyler is stuck having issues with the different weight of the gun he is using, Haynes explained. He was used to one gun, but hes trying a different one today. It takes a lot of concentration, Ogle said. He and fellow club members, Blake Muscott, Joe Gould and Ophelia Hibbard, one of three girls in the club, have been shooting guns for a long time, they explained. But when Schroll, an old skeet guy, sought interest in a 4-H shooting club, even he was surprised by the response. We had our first meeting in January, he explained. In the first month, we had 21 people sign up. His reason for starting the club was to get younger people involved in the sport. Ive got the time, the interest and the background, he said, noting hes excited about the enthusiasm from the youth involved. Schroll praised the support Haynes has provided in opening the facility to the Claybusters as well as to Amy Duncan, the extension service agent in Citrus County. With her help, the club secured a National Rifle Association (NRA) grant to purchase six shotguns for the club to use at practice and competition. I love it because its challenging and fun, Hibbard, 15, said. While Haynes keeps tabs on the teenagers, the trap range is in full swing with club members firing away at the various targets. But trap isnt the lone section thats busy. A cluster of members are gathered at the skeet stand, where skeet is fired at from eight points around and in the center of a semi-circle with targets coming across the shooter from a high house on the left of the circle and a low house on the right of the semi-circle. Targets come directly across the field requiring precision and quickness. Right next to the skeet, another group of shooters gather at the fivestand, which is set up to establish specific patterns allowing would-be hunters to perfect their skills while shooting for live game such as ducks, quail and rabbits. Fivestand is designed to simulate the random targets one might encounter while hunting. There are 13 different machines positioned around an open field and shooters will fire at targets away, across, up, in, high, low and bouncing on the ground at distances from a few yards to 50 yards. With hunting season rapidly approaching, business is expected to pick up. The facility also hosts several ATA (Amature Trapshooter Association) events throughout the winter months. During an average event in the winter, the club will go through up to 80,000 targets during a threeday event.

City secures loan extension City officials are getting a triple play of good news, as far as Greenlight Dunnellon Communications is concerned. With more than $4.4 million spent toward the launch of Greenlight Dunnellon Communications, bumps in the road and hurdles abound, City Manager Lisa Algiere confirmed Monday that Regions Bank in Orlando has in part agreed to an extension on Bond C. A bond payment of between $800,000 to $900,000 was due this month. However, because of delays in acquiring fiber and a finalized programming line up, the city has no paying customers, just a lengthy waiting list of those interested in services. City Manager Lisa Algiere would not confirm how long of an extension officials are seeking to obtain, but that it was longer than two months. Had the city not gotten the bank to agree to an extension, Algiere said it meant city officials would have to take a close look at the budget to come up with ways to make the payment. They are not concerned about the extension, she said, noting paperwork regarding the extension will likely be finalized soon. In the second good dose of TAKEAIMATROBINSONRANCHTRAP& SKEET INGLIS The report of gunfire breaks the silence of a crisp fall morning. The smell of gun powder wafts through the air. Light chatter abounds, so as not to break the concentration of the shooters. Thats how it goes at Robinson Ranch Trap and Skeet Club at 19730 S.E. 127th Terrace in Inglis, nestled off of State Road 40, 1 mile west of Dunnellon. The facility features trap, skeet, five-stand and Fitask shooting. There are seven trap fields in which trap is shot from five stations arranged in arc 16 yards behind the trap house. Targets are thrown at random angles from 40 degrees left to 40 degrees right. Shooters fire five shots from one station, rotates to the right and fires at five more targets until each shooter has completed five rotations and fired at 25 targets.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Donald Francis Snyder was walking about 9:15 p.m. northbound across the eastbound lanes of State Road 40 while the tractor-trailer, driven by Larrison Monell Parker of Ocala, was traveling east on S.R. 40. The right front portion of the truck collided with Snyder within the eastbound left lane, redirecting Snyder in an easterly direction, the report stated. Upon collision, Snyder was thrown approximately 80 feet, coming to a rest in the left lane facing south, the report stated. Parker swerved left and skidded to a stop in the center median turn lane, coming to a final rest facing east. Snyder was pronounced dead on scene by Marion County Fire & Rescue. The death is the 57 traffic fatality in Marion County this year. Unemployed for a year, a laptop computer sat in Kristi Ferguson-OTooles closet, barely used and almost brand new. My husband kept nagging me to get the laptop out and do something with it, said the 1995 Dunnellon High graduate. Hed bought it for me to use in my previous job and when I lost the job, I quit using it. He told me he didnt buy it for me to just sit there. So finally, the mother of three pulled it out from the closet, turned the power on and stared at the blank document in front of her. Like most folks, she had always dreamed of writing a story. Three children and a full-time job she led a busy sort of life. I never had time before, Ferguson-OToole explained. Now, she had the time, but the 34-year-old wasnt even sure where or how to start. I laid down with the computer, she said. I thought, I have a story, I thought I could write this story. I just knew if I could get the first line started, then I could do the rest. The first line came, the second line came, followed by the first paragraph and Special to the Riverland NewsKristi Ferguson-OToole, a 1995 Dunnellon High graduate, wrote her first book, Under the Moon, in less than a month. A few weeks later, she had a publisher. Now her first book is available online at several websites, including Barnes & Noble and Books-A-Million.

I thought if its stupid, Id be embarrassed. I was well over half way through the book when my son, Elijah, kept asking me what I was doing. I kept telling him it was none of your business. But her 14-year-old second child was persistent. He just kept peeking over my shoulder wanting to know what I was doing, FergusonOToole explained. Finally, I was like, for Gods sake will you leave me alone if I show you what Im doing? He said yes, but I made him promise not to tell a soul. I showed him, brought him up to speed. He was the first one I shared it with. After giving him a crash course on what would eventually be titled Under the Moon, her son was taken aback by what his mother had created. He inspired me to finish it, she said. He stood there watching and listening and when I was done, he said Being a kid I dont know what to say, but Im looking at my mom in her pajamas reading this story and didnt ever know you had something like it in you. Youre reading a story thats awesome. I was like oh crap, I got excited. Here is one person who likes it. So then I revealed to the rest of family what I had been doing. While her husband wasnt particularly excited about the story line, Ferguson OToole said he was supportive throughout the entire writing process. Hes very much a realist, he does not like the genre, she explained, noting he is more interested in nonfiction works. I told him you might not like the work, but you might like the results. Within another two weeks, Ferguson-OToole put the finishing touches on her first book. So by the end of September of this year, she took her completed project and sought out a publisher by doing her research of potential companies that might be interested in her finished work. Ferguson-OToole found four publishing companies to her liking, sending her book off to each one. Each company told her it would be up to three months before theyd be back in touch. So she went back to staring at the blank walls. Then the phone rang. The first publisher came back within two weeks and said they want it, she explained. Leary, shed have to pay a large amount up front, she researched the company. I thought it might be a scam, but then after looking at the company, I realized they didnt want any money and just got really excited and said lets do it, Ferguson-OToole said, noting the same day she signed the contract with Publish America, the second publishing company called and shortly after the third company called, all stating the same thing. We want your book. I thought this cannot be happening, this cannot be real, three companies want my book, she explained. Its not been three months. So I stuck with my gut instinct and went with the first publisher and they told me itd be up to 9 months to see it in print, just sit tight. The next thing I know my mom got an e-mail saying my book is available; I had not even heard about it. Then other friends e-mailed her telling her they saw my book was available. The book, Under the Moon, targets the lonely sort of neglected housewife. Its central characters are a 30-year-old male, Ciaran ORourke, who is a vampire, and a 27-year-old soon-tomother, Helene. Its for a slightly more mature audience, its not a high school drama, FergusonOToole explained, noting that its not like the Twilight series. Im 34, lusting after Edward Cullen (the main character in the Twlight series) just isnt right. Mothers arent going to be able to relate to that. Hes a kid, he probably smells bad. Im not into that sort of thing. The woman in my book doesnt have the best relationship with her parents. She loses her brother who was her best friend, she relocates, shes pregnant, she made a mistake, shes just trying to deal with getting life back on track. As luck would have it, her love interest is a vampire. She has no idea what he is. Hes trying to keep it from her, it was not his choice. Once she finds out, she decides shes going to love him anyway. Theres always dangers involved, quite a few supernatural dangers. Its just to help woman cope with day-to-day routines and get a break from reality. Ferguson-OToole said she based the main character on her husband, who she called her real life hero. The hero is based on my husband, she explained. He came into my life in a very dark period. Despite the recent hype surrounding the popularity of vampires, FergusonOToole explained shes always been interested in the genre. Her fondness for vampires came in the 1980s with the release of The Lost Boys and again in the 1990s when Bram Strokers Dracula was released. I definitely did not steal any ideas, Ferguson-OToole explained. I guess the timing may seem like, maybe it was just fate. I pretty much got the inspiration, again it sounds cheesey, but its based on my husband. He is my hero and I turned him into vampire. The story has always been in (my head). I just had time to get it out. The whole experience has been surreal. It doesnt seem quite right. Im going on a school run and another mom wants me to sign my book. Why do you want me to sign it? Its all been surreal, just a waiting game to see how well it goes. The feedback has been awesome. Ferguson-OToole said shes halfway through her second book and would like to turn the series into a trilogy. She plans to finish the second book, see how well the first book catches on and then plot a third one if necessary. She said her publisher is making a push to see if MSNBC will showcase the book on its morning show or on Bill OReillys nightly broadcast. Shell do her first book signing at the London, Ky., library this weekend. Her book, Under the Moon, is available at www.barnesandnoble.com, www.booksamillion.com, www.amazon.com and Publish Americas home page at www.publishamerica.net. From the early reviews her book has garnered from those who have read it, she hope it sucks them in. Im really nervous about it, she said. Everyone seems to really like it. In one day on Barnes & Nobles website, I went from 35 likes to almost 500. Something good is happening here, I just dont know how far its going to go. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, November 3, 2011 We Have Everything to build your look: CASH FOR GOLD Top Dollar Paid Consignment Consignment 7770 US Hwy 41, Dunnellon 352-465-7224 Tanyacash4gold@aol.com The Bling Bling Bling Bling Boutique Boutique & Brandon Says, Come check out our Designer Bags!

Algiere said the material will be here Monday, Nov. 7. Once its delivered, we have to test it, Algiere said, explaining fiber will have to be run from the Greenlight Communications building housed at the Old Library to its satellite farm on Southwest 180th Avenue, or High School Road as its also known. Once we test it, well establish a deployment schedule and well start announcing deployment of the system. We have to get the back bone, the main fiber down C.R. 484 and U.S. 41. Once we get that done, well be putting fiber into different neighborhoods. Once the testing period is complete, Algiere said, the city will begin offering services to potential customers in mid-December. The program lineup is 99.9 percent complete, Algiere said, noting the city will be able to offer several levels of service, including a Limited Basic Package, an Expanded Basic Package and a Variety Tier Package. A pricing structure has yet to be established for services, as officials are still awaiting results of a $35,000 rate study approved in July and finalized contracts for programming. Once we knew of the delivery date of the fiber, weve been right on schedule, Algiere said. Things are happening real fast, constantly changing. But well be moving right along soon. Still, the establishment and development of Greenlight Communications will not reach as far as officials had anticipated. Initially, the fiber to the home program was planning on extending services as far north as Rainbow Lakes Estates. However, after reviewing the scope of the plan, officials broke the project into several phases. As it stands now, the city will complete Phase I of the project, which includes throughout the city and the Rainbow Springs community. It will extend as far east to Southwest 180th Avenue Road, also known as High School Road or Tiger Trail, and as far north as State Road 40, as far west as River Retreat. While city officials recently touted its fiber to the home program to county officials at its joint meeting Oct. 9 in Ocala, Algiere said extending the fiber all the way to the airport will not happen immediately. Well leave a sufficient amount of fiber at High School Road, that we can extend that far, she said. Rainbow Lakes Estates is part of Phase II, Algiere explained, because officials dont have enough money in Phase I to extend the fiber to the home program that far. She said if theres enough demand, officials will consider extending the communications service that far as long as money is available. The capital costs wouldnt be nearly as much, because we already have the head end equipment, Algiere noted, stressing officials would have to assess where we are in Phase I.

Dick Morton Kiwanis Club of DunnellonHalpata TastanakiThis past year, the Marion County Audubon Society adopted Halpata Tastanaki Preserve as one of its conservation initiatives with the purpose of conducting several bird surveys during the year to determine what bird species and how many of each species either resides year round on the property or visits the property during migration or become snow birds during the winter. We are joining several of the Southwest Water Management District staff, including the new land manager for the preserve, later this month for a survey of the property and to map out future areas for our bird surveys. The property is currently home to 110 Florida Scrub-jays, a Federally threatened species, that live in various clusters on the site and depend on fire management measures, which maintain the scrub habitat they prefer. This is reported to be one of the largest colonies of Florida Scrub-jays in the state. There are two parking areas to access Halpata for horseback riding or hiking, one off State Road 200 opposite the Spruce Creek golf course, the second entrance is where the sign states Pruitt Trailhead almost opposite the Dunnellon airport on County Road 484. As you approach the parking area, look for Eastern Bluebirds along the fence line on the left Hometown rocked by tragedy Thelma and Louise My mother and I are always getting into trouble. It doesnt involve cops, handcuffs or bail, but if were together things are bound to go wrong. We dont plan these things, they just happen and its always when just the two of us are together. There was the time we were on our way to a friends funeral and I wasnt familiar with the area. My mom was supposed to be my navigator. Werent we both in for a surprise when we saw the traffic coming right toward us and realized we were driving the wrong way on a one way street. So up on the sidewalk with the car I go. Imagine how fun it was trying to convince the cop that we hadnt been drinking. I guess the worst experience we ever had was the time we went over to the courthouse for a child support hearing. After sitting there all day without so much as a penny of hope, we went outside to find my car was gone. Frantic was not the word as we paced up and down looking for it and wondering what to do. We came to find out it had been towed and was locked up in a lot down the street, all because I parked in a spot that said sovereign parking only. Eighty dollars later we were on our way home, needless to say with no child support and an empty bank account. We didnt tell anybody that story for years. What about the time we went out the wrong exit at the movie theater and got locked in a hallway with no way out. Good thing another lady saw us and came to our rescue, but not before a few minutes of panic. I dont remember if that was the same time we were both mad at our spouses and decided to do a double-header movie and stay gone all day. Coming home seven hours later and feeling very satisfied with ourselves only to find out that neither one of our husbands even realized wed been gone. We laugh about the time I bought five expensive coffee mugs engraved with names of my family, but as soon as we got out of the store we somehow tipped the bag over and all the mugs broke. We laugh about the time we got a flat tire right in front of the sleaziest redneck bar you could find and had to go inside and ask for help. Then, they wanted to buy us a drink and have us stay awhile. Or perhaps the time I straddled the ramp with my car at Soapys carwash and three huge men had to come out and pick the car up. Then there was the time we got lost going to Disney World late at night for the Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Party. Not only did we make my granddaughter cry because we kept saying we were lost, but we got there about half an hour before they closed. The last time we went there together, neither one of us brought enough money and we ended up splitting two hot dog baskets between four people and that was pretty much our dinner for the whole weekend. But we still had fun. Call us Thelma and Louise because when were together theres always an adventure. And although we arent laughing at the time they happen, it ends up being hysterical weeks later when one of us brings it up. My mother, my buddy and my partner in crime.

Even some so-called hardy plants can be vulnerable in colder regions, and exposed gardens. In any garden, all new hardy plants that are not fully established can be damaged, or killed in a prolonged cold spell, while new growth put on in early spring during a period of mild weather is vulnerable to scorch if the weather turns cold even for a short snap. But the main threat to borderline hardy shrubs is winter cold, particularly cold winds that will freeze stems, and can penetrate deep into the soil during a prolonged freeze. In recent years we havent had much in the way of prolonged cold spells, but dont become too settled the weather only obeys Mother Nature, and changes quickly at times. The critical period for protection is from mid-December to the end of February, but be vigilant until the middle of March in this area, and if you have a more exposed garden. Wrapping up Vulnerable specimens can be given an enclosure made from windbreak netting that is lined with garden fleece, while not-so-hardy wall shrubs are insulated from the cold by spreading a sheet of fine-mesh netting over the plants, and stuffing it with insulating material, such as straw, or dry leaves. Alternatively, you could drape the plants with a double layer of garden fleece. Make sure you secure the netting along all sides to prevent it blowing about in windy weather. Insulating the roots Many borderline shrubs and climbers benefit from having their roots protected during prolonged cold spells by covering the surface of the soil with an insulating mulch of dry leaves or compost. This is particularly important while the plant is becoming established during the first few seasons after planting. Use netting to hold an 8-inch-deep layer of autumn leaves, or straw in place, or cover the ground around vulnerable shrubs with a thick mulch of garden compost, or even piles of hedge trimmings. Protect against wind Newly planted evergreen shrubs and trees will suffer during the winter months if they are not given adequate protection, Protect semi-hardy shrubs, climbers Usually, I never turn my phone off, just in case of an emergency. Saturday night, after a long week of work, I crashed, having fallen asleep with my oldest son, Jackson. Thats not to say I slept through the night, I awoke from my slumber and checked the time it was shortly after 1 oclock Sunday morning. I grabbed my phone, hoping I hadnt missed anything major. The text messages came rolling in, from my mother no less: News flash huge explosion at Bartlett Grain, south of town. The headhouse blew. Sirens everywhere. That would be choppers. The second text at 8:58 p.m. read: Update some injuries, one being flown to KU. (Thats the University of Kansas Medical Centers Burn Unit.) A second update followed shortly afterward. Search and rescue coming from Kansas City. I immediately hopped on the computer, scouring the newspaper websites from the area. The photos clearly showed the damage that was done. Daylight would reveal much more. Saturday nights tragedy happened too close to home; the explosion literally shook my parents house, which sits about a mile away from the tragedy that has made national headlines. I recall the only other time a grain elevator in my hometown went boom. It was the 1980s and I was a junior high school student, when one of the big elevators at Midwest Grain Products exploded, bursting open a vertical seem in the middle and sending a heaping pile of grain onto the nearby railroad tracks. My father, still years from retiring as a firefighter, and my mother recalled the explosion that woke them from their sleep. My dad knew full well it wouldnt be long before he was called into work. He got dressed and left. It was an unusual January in Kansas. We had just been enjoying temperatures in the 70s, which made for a nice time. We didnt have cabin fever and the bikes werent collecting dust in the garage. But on the night that elevator at Midwest Grains went kaboom, the temperatures plummeted into the 30s, which made for a trying time battling a blaze on the backside of a sizeable building with no immediate access to the backside of it because of the number of railroad tracks behind it. However, that explosion didnt carry the gravity of the most recent one. No one was injured, none were killed. Folks were mostly freezing cold. I remember my father giving an interview with one of the local news channels; he had icicles frozen on his mustache. It took the guys from the fire department days to warm up. They spent nearly 16 hours on the scene, constantly putting out small fires that would spark. Saturdays tragedy will be felt in my hometown, but other communities as well mourn the loss of loved ones and try to make sense of it all.

Recently, I needed to make a trip to visit some relatives. These days, the way the economy and gas prices are it turns out to be cheaper to fly. Even though, airlines no longer serve the delicious food of which they became famous. Several aspects about airplanes that give me cause for alarm. The person who designed the modern-day airplane must have used one of the dwarfs for a model. Im thinking, Grumpy. The seats, for example, are not built for the average posterior. I know I need to go on a diet but my airplane seat does not have to remind me of that auspicious fact. The restrooms do not have any room whatsoever to rest in them. The last one I was in I had to step outside in order to change my mind. What were they thinking when they designed and built these restrooms? Personally, I think it is a conspiracy on the part of the entire airline industry to harass those of us who are diminutive challenged. However, I can live with some of these inconveniences. I do not really mind flying it is the airports that I cannot stand. If there were some way to fly the friendly skies and eliminate airports I would be a happy flyer. It has been a while since I flew the friendly skies and so I had forgotten some of the airport rigmarole that paying customers must go through. I am surprised with all of the fees associated with flying these days someone has not come up with the bright idea of charging a fee for everyone to be patted down. In order to get to the airplane you have to go through a very sophisticated technological gateway. I had forgotten how thoroughly they check out their passengers. Everything needs placed into a tray, which then goes through a scanner to make sure nobody is transporting a bomb in his or her baggage. Then comes the dangerous part. Everybody has to take off his or her shoes, which makes the whole airport smell as if some bomb did go off. Not only shoes, but also everybody has to empty their pockets and take off all jewelry. Then, after putting all of my stuff in these trays, I was to walk through an archway to make sure I was not transporting a bomb in my underwear. As I walked through the buzzer went off. Sir, do you have anything in your pockets? I looked and found a pen, so I had to take that out and put in a tray. Again, I walked through and the buzzer went off. Sir, is there anything else in your pockets? My wallet with credit cards and such things, which I did not realize was setting the buzzer off. I placed my wallet into the tray and then walked to the archway again. The buzzer went off again. At this point I was a little confused because I did not know what else I could take off. Therefore, I took off my sweater. Maybe something in the buttons that the archway did not like. Then the man on the other side of the archway spied what he thought was the trouble and said, Sir, you have to take off your suspenders. Say what? I said in alarm. You have to remove your suspenders. I looked at the man and then said, You do know the purpose of suspenders, dont you? With a distant disdain in his voice he simply said, Sir, you will have to remove your suspenders. By the tone of his voice, I ascertained that he did not have the foggiest idea of the purpose of a gentlemans suspenders. I wear suspenders because they are fashionable, comfortable and serve a vital purpose for me. I looked at him and said, Have you ever heard of wardrobe malfunction? Sir, he said in a practiced monotone, you will have to remove your suspenders. I saw no way around this obstacle and if I wanted to get onto the airplane, I would need to go through this archway. Slowly I took off my suspenders and put them in a tray to send through the scanner. The archway buzzer did not go off this time, which was a relief to me, but once I was through the archway things happened. As I reached for the tray on the conveyor, I suddenly felt a gentle breeze, heard several shrieks behind me and felt something grab my ankles. Wardrobe malfunction! Sure, you can grab your trousers and pull them up but you still have to live with the fact that you actually mooned potential fellow passengers on the airplane. I am not sure which is worse: a bomb in your underwear, or, your underwear on display. After adjusting everything and picking up my briefcase, I noticed several people pointing in my direction and laughing. Believe me, a wardrobe malfunction is not anything to laugh at unless of course it happens to someone else. Sitting in the airplane waiting to take off a verse of Scripture dominated my thinking. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribula-6 Riverland News, Thursday, November 3, 2011 To Advertise in the Church DirectoryCall 489-2731For More Information Dunnellon Presbyterian Church Jeffrey W.

Middle school children are encouraged to spearhead the drive at their own school, club or religious organization for new kid-sized toothbrushes and travel-size toothpaste for the first two weeks of November. Many children in our community are in need of basic dental care, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. Due to our partnership with the Heart of Florida Health Center, this drive will assist them with their new dental clinic that started in September.

Our seventh-grade students in Mrs. Coopers geography class explored the wonderful world of famous Russia jeweler Peter Karl Faberge in connection with their study of the Russian Revolution, the downfall of Czar Nicholas II and the rise of communism in 1917. Students used their textbooks and Internet resources to research the works of Faberge, particularly the Imperial Easter Eggs created by Faberge to commemorate historic and cultural events of the Romanov family. After having the opportunity to view and learn the history of several of the fabulous eggs, students then designed their own Faberge eggs out of construction paper and other classroom materials. The students really enjoyed this enrichment activity and the results were highly creative with each egg having its own surprise inside just like Faberge! Thank you Mrs. Cooper for bringing Faberge to Dunnellon Middle School. DMS has full slate of activities planned ROMEO NEWS Fun at the Fall Festival Romeo Round Up was a huge success with a lot of treats, games, food and excitement!

Betsy Davis Dunnellon Michelle-O-Gram fundraiserThe Michelle-O-Gram Fund was recently the benefactor of Racing for a Cure at the Williston Horse Park. Barrel-racing women, clad in pink, came from all over the area for an evening of fun, and prizes, while also recognizing the need to continue the fight against breast cancer. Terri Latner, sales representative for Midwest Feed and Farm Store, along with Purina Feeds organized the Race. Support signs were sold to business and individuals, door prizes were collected and organized for a very successful fundraiser for the Michelle-O-Gram. Elaine Hobbs, E-Graphics, created the signs, local businesses and individuals donated items for the silent auction. The Michelle-O-Gram has assisted more than 110 women so far this year. And, all because of a community that comes together to support a great cause and honor a great young woman who died two years ago from this horrible disease. Words just cannot express the gratitude so many women feel when they realize they no longer have to carry the unknown burden and can receive the needed testing. Without caring individuals, in the community, we could not continue this mission.

Martha Vaughn Chairwoman, Jazz Up Dunnellon LETTERS continued from page 4 especially in the most exposed spots. Being evergreen, they will continue to lose water through transpiration (the loss of water through the foliage), which they have to replace through their roots. Continue to water new evergreens if there is a prolonged spell of dry weather, treating them in much the same way as a winter container plant. Evergreens are also more prone to wind scorch during their early years, so protect exposed plants with a piece of windbreak netting firmly fixed to stout poles. Insulating containers You can protect plants in containers from freezing solid in winter by wrapping the containers in bubble polythene, and moving them to a sheltered spot. You can also cover the topgrowth of susceptible plants, and those of borderline hardiness with a double-layer of garden fleece. Dont forget to make sure that you leave access to water evergreen plants over the winter months. Tracy Jenner, the Riverland Gardener, can be reached at tracyjenner@aol.com.

Harriers set sights on regional berth Victor Chicas remembers the feeling of qualifying for regional championships a year ago as the Dunnellon High School boys cross country team finished seventh at the district meet. The then-sophomore finished 20th with a time of 17:17, missing qualifying by seven spots. The now-junior knows hell have to go it alone Saturday at The Villages High School at the District 2A-5 Championships. His health will be a factor though, as he pulled out of the Tigers last regular-season meet with a sore hip. Chicas is familiar with the course, having competed at the Buffalo Invitational Oct. 4. Chicas finished second at the meet, which featured more than 25 schools. Victor is good, Dunnellon coach Valerie Bazarte said. I spoke to him (Monday) morning. Im trying to get him to rest, which is what his body needs. Its a hard task he just loves to run. He said he took three days off, so I am assuming he is DISTRICT 2A-5 CHAMPIONSHIPS WHEN/WHERE: The Villages High School; girls race starts at 10 a.m.; the boys race begins at 11. TEAMS: Dunnellon, Interlachen, Keystone Heights, North Marion, Chiefland (girls only), Crystal River, Trinity Catholic, The Villages and Williston. AT STAKE: The top 13 runners advance to the Region 2A-2 Championships Saturday, Nov. 12, at Nature Coast Technical in Brooksville. Dunnellon cross country runners prep for district meet JEFF BRYAN Riverland News For Alex Love, shes entering familiar waters. For her teammates, Madeline Duran, CC and Alora Thompson and Madison Brown, its unchartered territory. But they all share the same goal and focus Saturday when they enter the waters at the Region 2A-2 Swimming and Diving Championships, beginning at 10 a.m. at the Central Florida YMCA Aquatic Complex in Orlando. Swim fast, swim hard and see if they can punch a ticket to the Class 2A Swimming and Diving Championships, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 12, at the Central Florida YMCA Aquatic Center in Orlando. To do so, theres one of two ways, win their event outright or be one of the top 16 fastest swimmers statewide. Love, a senior, qualified in three events the 50 freestyle and is a member of both the 200 and 400 free relay teams, which qualified at last weeks District 2A-4 Swimming and Diving Championships at the OConnell Center at the University of Florida. Love is seeded 19th in the 50 free with a time of 28.14. I was really excited when I found out, she said of qualifying for regionals. Because our district was pretty hard this year. We swim against Eastside, Gainesville, Leesburg, Belleview, theyre all pretty tough. Our relays are definitely going to make finals, but I dont know if well make it state itll be fun to just go and compete. Duran will compete in the 100 fly and 100 back. She is seeded 18th in the fly after posting a time of 1:17.48 in last weeks district meet, while she is seeded 23rd in the 100 back after posing a time of 1:16.82. Along with Love, shell also compete in the 200 and 400 free relay teams. I really am extremely excited about our upcoming meet, Duran said. I feel so proud of our team that we've made it so far. All the girls on the team are wonderful people and awesome swimmers. I can't wait to see how we do this weekend. Sisters CC and Alora Thompson round out the 200 free relay teams. CC Thompson and Madison Brown round out the 400 relay team, which is seeded 15th in the region with a time of 4:29.12. Tigers in must-win game against Colts Theres no need to remind Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley and his team about the importance of Friday nights match-up against North Marion, the Tigers long-time rival. Its all or nothing. A win against the Colts and Dunnellon forces a three-way tie for first place in the District 5A-5 standings, which means North Marion, Dunnellon and Santa Fe would duke it out in a shootout Monday night at Santa Fe. The scenario for a shootout looks like this. If Dunnellon wins Friday night at North Marion and Santa Fe wins Thursday night against Gainesville Eastside, the shootout will be Monday at the Raiders home field. Guess what prize we get if we beat North Marion? Beasley asked. We get North Marion in the first quarter. The winner of that one quarter moves onto play Santa Fe, with the winner clinching the district championship and the runner-up getting the second slot and a coveted playoff spot. However, theres still a chance the Tigers could capture their third straight district championship. Dunnellon would need a win and a DUNNELLON AT NORTH MARION WHEN/WHERE: 7:30 p.m. Friday at Stan Toole Memorial Stadium. RECORDS: Dunnellon 5-3 overall, 2-1 District 5A-5; North Marion 6-2, 4-0. LAST WEEK: Dunnellon knocked off Crystal River, 2414; the Colts shut out Gainesville Eastside, 35-0. WHO TO WATCH: Dunnellon RB Malcom Ross rushed for a season-high for a 133 yards and one touchdown on 23 carries in the Tigers 24-14 victory. RB Bobby Robinson had 10 carries for 85 yards, while he recorded eight tackles on defense. DL Keiwan Jones had eight tackles, two sacks and a fumble recovery, while LB Jeremy Dominey had a 33-yard interception return for a score. North Marion clinched its ninth consecutive playoff berth last week. The Colts were led by RB Jamie Gilmores 157 yards rushing and QB Chase Tutens two TD runs.

Players praised for their effortThe Dunnellon junior varsity football team ended its hectic season with a .500 record (4-4). We didnt play our best every game, but when we did work as a team and focus we pulled off a win, Josh Lange said. The Tigers did exactly that when they defeated Columbia, 18-16; Crystal River, 26-0; Nature Coast, 22-7; and Belleview, 38-14. I want all of you to concentrate on your grades, even though youre not playing well still be watching, assistant coach Faires said. Every guy who came out to practice and was there was a part of every win and I am proud of every single one of you. Even though the JV Tigers worked hard they still had some loses: Forest, 33-8; Westport, 36-28; Trinity, 26-8; and South Sumter, 28-8. The boys met my expectations, I mean a few key plays could have won more games but I am still proud, Dunnellon coach Archie Smith explained. For freshman who are coming up and people who are staying, the way they develop during offseason will determine who will be starting and who will play certain positions. All positions will be open to who can best fit them. Many of the players are excited to get things rolling again. I am looking forward to hopefully being starting quarterback this upcoming year, Levi West, a freshman, said. I am going to play baseball and do weightlifting over the offseason to keep in shape. Varsity head coach Frank Beasley also had a few words for the team after they beat Belleview, 38-14, to close out the season. You guys had a great year, battling around and not giving up, the seventh-year varsity coach said. This year was the toughest schedule we had in about seven years and you guys did great. Good job. The boys will be off for a month or so, until they begin off-season conditioning. Crystal River had its chances, but Dunnellon made sure the Pirates never capitalized on them Friday night at Ned Love Field. Despite committing three turnovers, including one inside the Pirates 5-yard line, and turning the ball over on downs two additional times inside the red zone, the Tigers offense did just enough to keep their playoff hopes alive for one more week with a 24-14 victory against Crystal River. We left a lot of points out on the field, said Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley, whose team improved to 5-3 overall and 2-1 in District 5A-5. Three times we get inside the 20 and we just stall, and then were close to punching one in and we fumble. Dunnellons defense was the story, as the Tigers didnt just stymie the Pirates rushing attack: it stopped it in its tracks. A week after Crystal River running back Napolean Hutcherson rushed for 152 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries in an overtime loss to Gainesville Eastside, the senior standout gained 4 yards on seven carries, all in the first half. QB Joe LaFleur, who had 134 yards of total offense a week ago, had just 21 yards against the Tigers defense, which sacked him five times in the second half. The junior signal caller left in the fourth quarter after he was sacked by Dunnellons Dezmond Crawford. Overall, Crystal River gained 142 yards of offense, more than half of it with the Pirates trailing 24-7 in the fourth quarter. They had a great defensive game plan for us, said Crystal River coach Greg Fowler, whose team dropped to 3-5 overall and 04 in district competition. We didnt have any answers for them. They gave us the most problems of any defense this year. They stopped our running game and it killed us, and they had a great blitz package. Fresh off a 51-7 shelling of Belleview a week ago, the Tigers offense seemed to pick up right where they left off on their opening drive. Dunnellon marched 59 yards in 10 plays, chewing up more than four minutes of time as senior running back Malcom Moss capped the drive with a 3-yard touchdown run. He finished with a seasonhigh 133 yards rushing on 23 carries.

lined up for a 30-yard field attempt when Dunnellon faked it and attempted to gain a first down or punch it into the end zone. From there, neither team found the end zone for the better portion of the second quarter as the Pirates were forced to punt twice while Dunnellon turned the ball over on downs inside the red zone and fumbled once. The Tigers forced Crystal River into its third punt of the first half with 2:19 remaining in the second quarter. From the Pirates sidelines, the coaching staff let it be known it wanted its defense to come up with a big play, and it did just that, forcing a fumble and recovering it at the 14-yard line. Three plays later, LaFleur found tight end Tyler Burns zipping through the seam of the Tigers defense for a 15yard touchdown reception and knotting the game at 7-all and appearing in good shape knowing it would receive the ball to start the second half. But thats when the Tigers landed a one-two combo the Pirates never recovered from. Buoyed by a short kick off and a return to the Crystal River 43-yard line, Beasley told his offense to go get em baby. Five plays later, Connor Wentz hauled in an 8-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Jordon Boley, as the point after was good, giving the Tigers a 14-7 lead with 33.7 seconds remaining in the opening half. With solid field position at the Dunnellon 40yard line, the Pirates attempted to go to the air to and two plays into Crystal Rivers sixth offensive possession of the half, the Tigers made them pay as linebacker Jeremy Dominey dropped into zone coverage, stepping right in front of Hutcherson and snagging LeFleurs pass and racing 33 yards for a touchdown with 16.4 seconds remaining. The point after was successful, giving Dunnellon a 21-7 lead. I think that changed the momentum of the whole game, Beasley said of scoring twice in the final minute. Jeremy made a great play; he did last year for us. Dominey said he was never concerned with who was chasing him down; his mind was set on getting into the end zone. I wasnt looking behind me, he said. I just kept thinking about how much Ive got to get into the end zone. Dunnellon plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday at North Marion. The Tigers must win to force a three-way tie for first place in the district. They might make the playoffs, well see how it goes for them this weekend, Fowler said. The month of October was a very busy time for the DMS SAVE (Students Against Violence Everywhere) Club. We had a very successful National SAVE Day on Oct. 19 and our fellow students and staff members supported us by wearing orange or purple on that day. The students also created and wore lanyards all day that had an anti-drug, anti-violence or anti-bully slogan or theme and were eager to share with the faculty what they created. The very next week (Oct. 24 to 27) was Red Ribbon Week, which SAVE also sponsored. We had a series of activities all week: Monday Recognition Day. Everyone wore red or red ribbons. We also recognized another one of our local DMS clubs, FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) for its efforts and for sharing the same principles that we do. SAVE members presented FCA advisor Sherri Reddick a certificate and bags of Smarties candies to distribute to her FCA members for making smart choices. Tuesday Decorate a Door Day. All first-block classes decorated their doors with our school theme in mind One School, One Goal, Bully and Drug Free. Wednesday Spirit Day. Everyone was encouraged to wear their favorite team jersey or shirt. Thursday Costume Day and Dance. All students were allowed to wear costumes and enjoy a Halloween dance in the Caf. Along with all of this, we also had a poetry contest and a schoolwide pledge with banners for each grade level to sign pledging to be drug and bully free for the remainder of the year. We are happy to report that everyone at DMS, students and staff alike, really enjoyed the week-long Red Ribbon activities. The next SAVE meeting will be during early release/club day Wednesday, Nov. 9. We will be discussing the upcoming events such as the Angel Tree and the Dunnellon Christmas parade and a December fundraiser (candy grams). Thank you to our parents for your support throughout Red Ribbon week, which was sponsored by the SAVE Club.

A loss and a Sante Fe victory, and all the Tigers get is Williston on Nov. 11 to close out their season. For now, Beasley and his team will know what it needs to do before the Tigers even take the field against the high-powered Colts. Were going to have to control the clock and limit their possessions, Beasley said. This is probably the most talented team theyve had. The Colts are led by running back Jamie Gilmore and quarterback Chase Tuten. Last week against Eastside, Gilmore rushed for 157 yards rushing and Tuten, who recently returned the lineup after an injury, rushed for two touchdowns. The senior signal-caller can also throw the ball as Beasley knows. Hes one of the best tailbacks Ive seen, Beasley said of Gilmore. And they have two or three of the best receivers Ive seen in long time. These guys are good, and their quarterback throws it really well. Youve got to pick your poison. Defensively, Beasley believes his team is playing its best right now. That hasnt been more evident the past two weeks in which Dunnellon has allowed just 21 points. Against Crystal River last Friday, the Tigers recorded five sacks, two interceptions in which linebacker Jeremy Dominey returned for a score, the second straight week in which the Dunnellon defense has returned a turnover for a touchdown. And the blitz package Pirate coach Greg Fowler praised so much? I didnt call one blitz, we just read it and went, Beasley said. We put a couple of different fronts in where it helped our cause a little bit, but were really playing well, were going to have take some chances this week and do some different things, like go for it on fourth-andshort and keep them off the field. That doesnt necessarily mean a lot of trick plays will be thrown at the Colts either. Offensively, were going to do what we do, Beasley explained. We cant ask our kids to do a bunch of stuff we havent asked them to before. I really feel like in big games you go wrong doing that. We just need to keep their offense off the field. That means protecting the ball, especially inside the red zone. Against Crystal River, the Tigers fumbled the ball inside the 5-yard line and twice turned it over on downs inside the 20-yard line. We cant turn the ball over, its been a recurring theme all year, Beasley said.

CHRIS SMITH/For the Riverland NewsVictor Chicas, a standout cross country for Dunnellon competes at a meet earlier this season. ready to run on Saturday and redeem himself. He has tons of pride and heart as you well know. Victor, unless not full strength, should come in first or second. Bazarte said her other runners are young and making progress. I do not know how they might do, she added. Dillon Lamb has the best chance to qualify if he has a good run. Therell be a bit of unfamiliarity for the Tigers Saturday, at least not in terms of the course theyll compete on, but against the competition. We have not raced everyone in our district, Bazarte said. Brittany Lakhani, senior has seen limited action this season due to her dual enrollment classes, but hopes to return to the regionals for the first time since her freshman year, Dunnellon Coach Tracy Young said. Senior Natalie Cote, in her first year of cross country competition, has steadily improved and looks for a strong showing Saturday, Young explained. At the district meet a year ago, she finished 28th with a time of 22:14. Theres also sophomore Courtney Pike, Young said, who continues to display her athletic ability with improving times throughout the season, including the top time on the team. Last year in her first district meet, she finished with a time of 22:52. Courtney has responded to the challenges she has faced and looks to land a spot in the regional, Young said, who expects Crystal River to be the toughest competition, with depth as well as ability. Because of a lack of numbers, the Lady Tigers wont have enough runners to compete as a team. get young people involved in the sport, Haynes said as he kept a watchful eye on the four members of the club present, noting in December a local Boy Scout Troop will be provided lessons. Haynes spends a few minutes helping the youths on tracking their targets, stance and position. He provides Tyler Ogle with additional pointers. Tyler is stuck having issues with the different weight of the gun he is using, Haynes explained. He was used to one gun, but hes trying a different one today. It takes a lot of concentration, Ogle said. He and fellow club members, Blake Muscott, Joe Gould and Ophelia Hibbard, one of three girls in the club, have been shooting guns for a long time, they explained. But when Schroll, an old skeet guy, sought interest in a 4-H shooting club, even he was surprised by the response. We had our first meeting in January, he explained. In the first month, we had 21 people sign up. His reason for starting the club was to get younger people involved in the sport. Ive got the time, the interest and the background, he said, noting hes excited about the enthusiasm from the youth involved. Schroll praised the support Haynes has provided in opening the facility to the Claybusters as well as to Amy Duncan, the extension service agent in Citrus County. With her help, the club secured a National Rifle Association (NRA) grant to purchase six shotguns for the club to use at practice and competition. I love it because its challenging and fun, Hibbard, 15, said. While Haynes keeps tabs on the teenagers, the trap range is in full swing with club members firing away at the various targets. But trap isnt the lone section thats busy. A cluster of members are gathered at the skeet stand, where skeet is fired at from eight points around and in the center of a semi-circle with targets coming across the shooter from a high house on the left of the circle and a low house on the right of the semi-circle. Targets come directly across the field requiring precision and quickness. Right next to the skeet, another group of shooters gather at the fivestand, which is set up to establish specific patterns allowing would-be hunters to perfect their skills while shooting for live game such as ducks, quail and rabbits. Fivestand is designed to simulate the random targets one might encounter while hunting. There are 13 different machines positioned around an open field and shooters will fire at targets away, across, up, in, high, low and bouncing on the ground at distances from a few yards to 50 yards. With hunting season rapidly approaching, business is expected to pick up. The facility also hosts several ATA (Amature Trapshooter Association) events throughout the winter months. During an average event in the winter, the club will go through up to 80,000 targets during a threeday event.
