Man charged with DUI; two hurt in wreck CHRISTMAS CLAUSES A 48-year-old Dunnellon man is facing charges of DUI causing property damage as well as possession of a legend drug without a prescription after being involved in a two-vehicle wreck Saturday on U.S. 41 and Pennsylvania Avenue. According to police reports, John W. Popke was the driver of a red Kia van involved in a wreck causing $6,000 in property damage. While investigating the traffic crash, Officer Bruce Arnold determined Popke was the at-fault driver and while speaking with the defendant he appeared to be under the influence of unknown substance, due to slurred speech and the defendant was unable to keep his balance, the report stated. After completing the investigation of the traffic crash, the report stated Officer Arnold informed Popke he was now beginning a separate investigation due to him possibly driving under the influence of unknown substance. Popke stated he understood and agreed to participate in field sobriety exercises, the report stated. During the field sobriety exercises, Officer Arnold observed that Council OKs site plan for new club Boys & Girls Club facility clears final hurdle Its been a long 16 months for Bobby James, a driving force behind seeing a new Boys & Girls Club facility being built in Dunnellon, which faced plenty of hurdles and obstacles after the agency secured $840,000 in funding in August 2010 through the Community Development Block Grant, which is funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Officials had originally hoped to break ground and start construction in January 2011, but with plenty of details to be worked out in regard to development and site plans, the agency was unable to move an ounce of dirt. That will all change in the coming months after the Boys & Girls Club of Marion County cleared the final remaining hurdle, the Dunnellon City Councils approval of a the agencys site plan. Now, James said, the agency will open the bidding and hopes to have a contractor selected by January, at the latest, so construction can begin on the 8,000-plus-square-foot facility which encompasses 3.72 acres of land across from Walmart on U.S. 41, near the site of the old Dunnellon Middle School. The Marion County School District owns 5.6 acres of property; however, district officials agreed to lease the property to the Dunnellon Boys and Girls Club for $1 per year for the next 50 years. The primary building, which will host programs, will be 8,000 square feet. The secondary facility will be an outdoor basketball court and courtyard with a Annual Santa Over the Rainbow kicks off Friday night at state park Riverland News file photosSanta Claus visits with a young girl last year during Santa Over the Rainbow. The annual event at Rainbow Springs State Park kicks off at 6 p.m. Friday night as Santa and Mrs. Claus will make their return to the park. If the madness of the Black Friday shopping frenzy has you feeling the winter blues, then the Friends of Rainbow Springs has just the treat to get you back into the holiday spirit. Once again, Rainbow Springs State Park will host its annual Santa Over the Rainbow event. There will be entertainment, shopping, food, a light extravaganza and photo opportunities with the guests of honor Santa and Mrs. Claus. We have quite a few volunteers that help out, said FORS member Linda Booth, one of the event coordinators. We have a wonderful lighting and construction crew. We have so many wonderful volunteers that help out with this every year; we get about the same volunteers, they do a fantastic job, and theyve been doing this for a quite a long time. We get a lot of people coming from out of town, they come every single year. One couple comes every night and they sit on the veranda and watch the kids go by. Santa and his wife will be leaving their sleigh at the North Pole this year and arriving via pontoon boat to visit with all youngsters and those of us who are young at heart. The event kicks off Friday, Dec. 9, and continues through Sunday, Dec. 11, and the following weekend from Dec. 16 to 18.

With no tree lighting ceremony a year ago, several residents approached Councilwoman Lynne McAndrew about putting together an event to celebrate the Christmas season. So with the blessings of the City Council and City Manger Lisa Algiere, Dawn Bowne, a long-time city employee and current city clerk, went to work. I jumped on it immediately, got some e-mails out and called chamber for some assistance, Bowne said. When Lynne and I Dawn Bowne city clerk praised residents for call to action.

River views Greenlight rates dont seem competitive If I go with Greenlight Dunnellon Communications service I would be paying a lot more than I am paying now for comparable services. Really, they are not offering anything that I do not already have. That is not practical. There is also the additional cost of a set top box that you would pay for every month. On top of all this, there is an installation charge and set up fee. This is similar to the stunt that was pulled by the telephone companies for years. Now you buy a phone and pay for it once. All in all, it does not sound like this is something the average citizen would go for or could afford to use. Regards, Jack Shankle Annual RSPOA elections nearingIts that time of year again. Along with all the hustle and bustle of the Christmas Season, the election packets for the Rainbow Springs Property Owners Association should be received by property owners not later than Dec. 25. The election/general meeting is Jan. 25. Please read your proxies carefully you do not have to fill in the current presidents name to carry your proxy! You can fill in anyones name who is a member in good standing of the POA or better yet you can hold on to it until Election Day and bring it with you to the general meeting! There will be six incumbents names and two names picked by the nominating committee. Then a column headed others. This is an ongoing unfair practice by the current Board of Directors. All names should be listed in alphabetical order, possibly with an asterisk next to incumbent names. Any member of POA in good standing should be able to place their name on the ballot. Members should make it a point to come to the general meeting to discuss where, when, and how your assessment fees are being spent to ask questions of the Board of Directors about any business matters referring to RSPOA financial matters, security matters, car information, code violations, the River Park are everyones concern. A big concern also is the foreclosure situation. You should be very interested in what is happening here in our community. Lets have some discussion about term limits. This is the most important meeting of the entire year everyone should make the effort to be there. Again this year you can bring your proxies, or call Joan Duggins at 4891865 or Penny Fyrogennis at 489-4526, and we can pick them up too. We really hope to see you Jan. 25 and we thank you for the opportunity to help with your proxies.Joan Duggins and Penny Fyrogennis, Rainbow Springs Residents Holiday savings in your home: Reduce your electric bill over the holiday season Bah humbug and all that jazz A nd so it begins. The dreaded Christmas shopping season. Packed, hot malls, parking lots with no empty spaces, pushing, shoving, empty pockets, unpaid bills and tons of anxiety. Oh, did I mention I dislike this time of the year just a wee bit? No, not the meaning of Christmas and what its all about. I love that part. I love the story of baby Jesus and the manger, I love going to church for midnight Mass, and I love the joy and fellowship that it brings. Its everything else that I hate. It ticks me off that there are Christmas decorations in the stores in October. It seems like Veterans Day and Thanksgiving get the short end of the stick. All you can hear on the radio is Here Comes Santa Claus 24 hours a day. And it annoys me that most of the world thinks this day, Dec. 25, is about gifts and toys and spending money instead of whats really important. I get stressed out every year around the end of November. I start panicking that I wont have enough time, money or energy to do whats still left to be done. The time we always seem to find and the energy comes from a hidden place way deep inside that we didnt even know existed. But where does the extra money come from? That is the real challenge every year. How I wish there was this magical man that could fly through the sky and bring all the gifts that my children could ever wish for. I used to like Christmas, didnt I? Im sure when I was a kid and all I had to do was run out of my room as early as possible and scream so loud it woke everybody in the house up, Im sure I liked it then. But my mother tells me I never enjoyed decorating the tree or wrapping gifts or even listening to Christmas music, all the things that youre supposed to like doing. So I guess there was no hope for me even back then. But there is one part of Christmas I like and thats riding around at night looking at all the lights and decorations that everybody has up. I love that part. And I also love buying the perfect gifts for the family that will put smiles on their faces. OK, now there are two things I like about Christmas. Maybe theres hope for me after all. We also have five December birthdays in our family, which really puts a capital C into the word challenging. So here is everything I still need to do this month: Buy and send mother-in-law gift and card to Vero Beach; shop for Christmas gifts for kids, grandkids and nieces; help grandson write a letter to Santa; plan and prepare my youngest daughters birthday party at my house; figure out what to get 20 year old stepson for his birthday; attend my granddaughters birthday party plus figure out a great gift that she doesnt already have; have our Christmas cards made and sent out; buy two books of Christmas stamps; plan a great surprise party for my moms 80th birthday and then figure out how to keep it a surprise; send brothers gifts to Iowa; attend Christmas pageants at school; wrap all the gifts and have them under the tree by Christmas Eve at which time Ill prepare a ravioli dinner for everyone, plan and prepare dinner on Christmas day, while also working three jobs and keeping everybody happy. OK, I know theres something I forgot, but what is it? Oh breathe dont forget to breathe and sleep dont forget that either. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night! In fact, wake me when this is all over. Bah Humbug, indeed! The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

The holiday parties with seemingly endless smorgasbords of food from appetizers to an endless buffet of desserts. No matter the stress level, there is something on the table to make it all go away. Now I know I certainly look like I could use an extra meal, perhaps two or three. I recall a day when I could eat and eat and eat some more and not gain a pound. The local Mexican fast food eatery dreaded it when my buddies and I would walk through the door. It was like we had our own food challenge 10 tacos and a pound of spicy tator tots simply called potato oles. Of course its nothing compared to the challenges Adam Richman of Man vs. Food submits himself to on a weekly basis on his show, which airs Wednesday nights on the Travel Channel. I watch with complete shock and awe at what he pounds down, wondering if he knows his lifespan will not last long eating such meals. Its insane. However, I have to admit it is pretty awe inspiring, and raises the question of which restaurant in town could create a challenge so big and intriguing enough to lure Man vs. Food to town to take on the challenge. So heres my food challenge to our local culinary experts: Come up with a challenge so amazing that we can lure Richman to town. As a matter of fact, Im willing to take on the challenge with Richman as well as a local celebrity, such as a city official, police officer or firefighter. Now this might seem crazy, but why not see about giving our local economy a huge boost and some notoriety for a food challenge that would bring folks here in droves just because they have a buddy who could eat a horse. Secondly, I believe we can lure the show here because we have folks here who can help us pitch the idea by making a promotional video explaining the positives of bringing a national show to small-town America. Lastly, any food challenge created we can pitch to him as being the first to attempt it. Maybe we can even allow him to name it. And so what happens if we cannot lure the show here? I say we turn this into a charity fundraising event benefitting Honor Flight, Special Olympics, Annie W. Johnson, Relay for Life or the arts programs at our local schools. My stomach might regret it but everyone that knows me, knows I have a big mouth. So whos with me in an attempt to bring national food glory to Dunnellon? Tis the season of gluttony I n a time of year thats characterized by excess and plenty, a little savings can be a good thing. Whether its that extra piece of pie or that extra Christmas gift, all these little extras can add up to an extra large dent in your diet and wallet. One extra you probably dont factor into your holiday budget is your increased electricity cost. Your electric bills can be close to their yearly peak during the holiday season. Read below for tips from UF/IFAS Marion County Extension Service to arm yourself against these electricity extras that can cause your holiday bills to be a little too plenty. Shed a little LED light on your holiday season. According to the Department of Energy, a standard string of lights (125 bulbs) on for 12 hours a day for 40 days uses $27.21 worth of electricity. A string of mini incandescent lights (300 bulbs) on for that time costs $6.53 and a string of LED lights (280 bulbs) costs only $0.61. Dont light up the night. Most folks wont look at your lights after 10 p.m. because theyre asleep. Set your lights on a timer or plug them in at dark and unplug them before bed. Outdoor timers cost about $16 and will save you hours of unneeded energy use. Buy a Florida-grown Christmas tree. No, this isnt a palm tree with garland. Five varieties of Christmas trees grow in Florida, and Marion County alone is home to three tree farms. See a list of Florida tree farms here: www.flchristmastrees.com and support a local business this holiday. Cool it. Turn down the thermostat when you have guests (the stove, hot food and warm bodies can keep the house warm) and when you sleep. According to the Department of Energy, turning your thermostat back 10 15 degrees for eight hours can save five 15 percent on your yearly heating costs. Invest in a warm comforter to help with especially cold nights. Recharge it. If you purchase a gift that includes batteries, throw in some rechargeable batteries. The lucky recipient will appreciate you saving them the hassle and cost of buying new ones and youll reduce the batteries that end up in the landfill. Shop smarter. Shopping online saves gas and time, and free shipping is becoming easier and easier to find. When heading to the stores, try to fit as many of your holiday errands as possible into a single trip. Make contact. Electric stovetops can only transmit heat to pans with which they are in direct contact. If you have a warped or rounded pan that wobbles, you are wasting a lot of heat and electricity. Have questions? Want an expert to speak to your group?

Letter writer hits point about cameras I agree with Burt Eno I have a strong mistrust of the powers that be on the City Council. Since the Lowes fiasco, I have had second thoughts about how this town is headed. I left a town in central Florida hoping to avoid something like this. Even though I dont run red lights or speed, I have felt like a second-class citizen with the cameras. In order to avoid penalizing local vendors, I have changed my shopping routine to make sure I use shopping centers with connecting parking lots to avoid the intersections with cameras. Walmart to Sweetbay, leaving through the second exit; go to Sav-a-lot, exit to Bank of America. The Powell Road light left is usually red, no problem. Go back through unlighted Sweetbay entrance to Tractor Supply. No problem. I have the time on my days off to do this routine, I just dont have the trust of the cameras, nor do I have the money to pay for a rear-end collision.Linda Viock Dunnellon Rainbow Springs Residents Beach, part 2As Paul Harvey used to say: And now for the rest of the story. Four days before the devastation of plantings at our beach, the Marion County Springs Festival gave our Beach Committee an award. They recognized the wonderful work of the volunteers, who had worked long hours landscaping the area with Florida friendly plants to protect and beautify the beach. To show the award was significant, it included a $200 cash prize. The lengthy whitewash from the R.S.P.O.A. president glossed over the devastation and accepted no responsibility for the matter. After listening to them justifying the mowing and cutting at their last meeting, I polled the P.O.A. Board members and found that no one was a Master Gardener. There are several on the Beach Committee. The Board also complained that the head of the Beach Committee was gone during the summer, so they had no one to consult, when a few people complained that they couldnt see the water. Several Master Gardeners on the committee were here all summer and would have been glad to share their expertise. The R.S.P.O.A. Presidents idea to hire an outside expert to develop a -month maintenance plan is a waste of money. We have more expertise in the Master Gardeners who live in Rainbow Springs than any one outside expert. If a master plan is necessary, residents can draw up the best possible specifications, at no cost! Speaking of cost, you might want to check out another November agenda item. The P.O.A. Board intends to spend $7,000 on security cameras at the beach with no one watching the monitors. If there are incidents, the records will be reviewed a day or two later. Why bother after the fact? If you are tired of the tyranny of the few, give your annual meeting proxy to Penny Fyrogennis, 489-4526, or Joan Duggens, 489-1865, and well try to make a difference.

The new facility will replace the clubs current building, which consists of a modular unit across from Ernie Mills Park in the downtown area. However, the grant funding can only be used on construction of the facility and will not cover the cost of furnishing the building. The City Council, however, addressed its concerns with the facilitys proposed structure, a metal building that would be built to meet todays hurricane standards. Councilwoman Penny Fleeger and Councilman Dennis Evans said during conversations with James, they were under the impression the facility would be a hardened structure, available for use during an emergency. James explained the funds they have available wouldnt cover the cost of hardening the entire facility. Its not what we discussed, she said. The building needs to be hardened, theres no safe building in this town. It seems to make sense to me; there are a lot of kids that need to be sheltered there. James stressed again that the grant to cover the construction as well as engineering costs would not allow the organization to build a hardened facility. We dont have the money, he said. However, if you all have some money you want to contribute, we can do whatever you want us to do with the building. Fleeger then promised shed make some calls. Ill get back to you, she told James. City officials also asked James if there would be a possibility of establishing a sewer line and running fiber down a road to be constructed so they would not have to tear up a road after the fact. City officials, who originally offered a service package worth $144,500 over 10 years or the equivalent of $14,450 per year, will keep their promise, City Manager Lisa Algiere said. As part of the package, the city will: Waive sewer and water connection fees for the new structure. ($20,000 or more). Waive the 25 percent surcharge on utility fees outside the city, as well as the amount over the base minimum. This would be approximately $4,000 per year for 10 years. Provide garbage and waste collection. This would be approximately $3,450 per year for 10 years. Provide a technology package including phone, cable and Internet connection, worth approximately $5,000 per year for 10 years. 6 Riverland News, Thursday, December 8, 2011 000A00M 5 YR Guaranteed!* 3.20 % APY 6 7 1 5 3 7 4 671-5374 Free interest withdrawal anytime Plus Free 15% withdrawal in each year after 1st year Total free withdrawal in 5 years ($5,000,000 limit per family Minimum $10,000 $5,000 Minimum IRA) Employee Life Company (Mutual) Form No. SPD11-05 Additional deposits accepted during first 90 days after issue date 1805 SE 16th Avenue, Bldg 200 Ocala, FL 34471 ASK about RATES for longer term with larger deposit on regular savings or IRA/401ks including transfers FIRST AMERICAN TRUST of Central Florida, LLC provides financial services locating FDIC insured banks and other leading financial institutions offering best yields nationwide.

The Dunnellon City Council gave its approval to move ahead with a project to renovate the tubers exit, which also serves as a canoe/kayak launch and exit. Construction is under way and is expected to last up to 60 days, said Jim Couillard, landscape architect with Marion County Parks and Recreation. The improvements to the tubers exit will feature a 12-foot wide, universally accessible ramp, which will provide entry and exit into the Rainbow River for paddle crafts and tubers. According to plans, the ramp will have a gradual slope of 1 to 12 feet and will extend into the river at least 15 to 20 feet, Couillard said. There are also plans for some landscaping to help beautify the area that the city of Dunnellon will help fund, he explained. The project is being paid for with a Cooperative Funding Initiative (CFI) grant awarded by the Southwest Florida Water Management District. Overall, the grant totaled $300,000 and was used to renovate the parking lot and the runoff of limestone into the river. From what it was last year to what its going to be in the next 50 days is going to be phenomenal, Couillard said. For public safety, the access area will be closed to visitors during construction. The main parking area and San Jose Boulevard parking area will remain open, however, allowing visitors to access all other park areas. Access to the Rainbow River is available at the Dunnellon boat ramp U.S. 41, adjacent to City Hall, and at KP Hole Park at 9435 S.W. 190th Ave. Road. Please use one or the other, Coulliard stressed. Once they get going, its going to be too dangerous, too busy for people to be there seeing whats going on. For more information, call Marion County Parks and Recreation at 6718560.

spoke about it, I just started making some phone calls. Within a week, Bowne had lined up a choir to sing, gotten donations of Christmas lights, businesses to supply snack and drinks and, of course, make sure Santa Claus could take time to greet children and get any lastminute wish list items from them. The Rev. Eddie Fulford from First United Methodist Church of Dunnellon will deliver the invocation and Dr. Abraham Robinson, pastor of New Second Bethel Missionary Baptist Church, will do the Benediction after the ceremony. The Dunnellon Community Choir will sing carols and such. Maxine Thomas, a former city employee at the Dunnellon Police Department, was one of the first persons Bowne called. They are just amazing, they are just awesome, Bowne said of the Dunnellon Community Choir. Carmellas Restaurant will offer hot chocolate and cookies and Simply Seafood will give samples of clam chowder to those in attendance. Walmart donated lights for trees while city employees Anthony Santacross made a tree topper and Dan Adams donated additional lights for the gazebo. Bowne said the city is seeking contributions from families and children to bring additional ornaments, whether its store bought or homemade, for the Christmas tree. Several local daycares have already agreed to make ornaments or decorations for the event in which a separate time will be set aside for youths to place their additions on the tree. I think we really got the word out about the event, Bowne said. This was to get the community involved and get them actively involved. are from 6 to 8:30 p.m. with Santa arriving each night at 7. Cost of admission into the park is $1 for adults and children 5 and older; any child 5 and younger is free. Photo opportunities with Santa and Mrs. Claus will be available at the Santa House each evening by Friends of Rainbow Springs Volunteers. Digital souvenir photos can be purchased for a cost of $2 each. Parents are welcome to take their own photos in limited numbers. Well-behaved pets are welcome each night, but please wait until the lines are shorter if you plan to have your photo taken with Santa. The children love it, they just love it, Booth explained. We have so many lights, some have compared us to Silver Springs. Like I said, we couldnt ask for a better group of volunteers. And Santa and Mrs. Claus are wonderful, theyre just fantastic too. They make such a good couple. I cannot express enough words, how excited everybody is. Im hoping the weather holds out. Be sure to stop by the Felburn Pavilion where there will be plenty of entertainment and free cider provided. The Friends of Rainbow Springs Gift shop will be open for your holiday shopping enjoyment. Storytelling can be found in the Gingerbread House, as well as an extravaganza of lights and food concessions will be open. This year, the Lights Only event, will be Dec. 26 and 27. Times for the event are 6 to 8:30 p.m. Fees for this special event are the same as Santa over the Rainbow; however, annual passes will not be honored. The volunteers go running out every night checking the lights, Im surprised that we havent blacked out the town, Booth explained. Every year we get more and more lights. Its like when everyone gets here, they get into this magical mood. Your whole life changes when you see all of these lights, everything just changes. Its just breath taking. Pack up the family and make sure to stop by this event, but dont forget to bring your wish list for Santa. For more information, call 352-465-8555.

Dunnellon Elementary School kindergarteners traveled Thursday, Dec. 1, to the Ocala Civic Theater to enjoy a giant puppet show of Peter Rabbit. The children laughed and danced along as they learned the tale of a naughty rabbit, who broke his mom's rules and got trapped in Farmer McGregor's garden. For some students, this was their first ride on a school bus and they were extremely excited. "Oohs" and "Aahs" filled the buses as they rode past the giant Christmas tree and towering ferris wheel in the Ocala Square. Many students expressed it was the "best day of (their) entire life!" Ishana Maharaj and Savannah Perez Pantoja have been added to the sunshine wall of fame. Congratulations! Our wall is filling up as new readers are added. And some of the ones already there are being moved for the number of Sunshine books they have read!! Keep up the good work DES!

Riverland News, Thursday, December 8, 2011 9 Romeo Elementary students finishing Benchmark testing R omeo Elementary School students in grades three through five are finishing Benchmark testing this week and results should be available by the middle of next week for parents to review with teachers. Results of this assessment show parents the strengths and weaknesses of their child in reading and math. Fifth-grade students are also tested in science. With interim reports already posted, it is a great time to schedule a conference to monitor your childs progress. At 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 8, in the Romeo Media Center, Mr. Rob Sellvaggi, from Scientific Learning, will present information about the Fast For Word program. This is a specialized program that helps train the brain to use the most effective lobes in an effort to increase learning. Select students at Romeo are now using the program, and many more will be offered the opportunity in January. We invite all interested parents to join us for this presentation. Fifth-grade students will present a holiday concert under the direction of music teacher Sondra Collins Thursday, Dec. 15. The concert will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Romeo cafeteria.

The concert is free for your enjoyment! Friday, Dec. 16, will be an early-release day and will begin our winter break. Classes will resume Tuesday, Jan. 3. Kathy Hultman Romeo Principal DMS students will receive interium reports Friday D unnellon Middle School will distribute Interim Reports Friday, Dec. 9, as well as a copy of our December/January DMS Newsletter and calendar.

The final entry on our bands busy December calendar is the Dunnellon Christmas Parade on Saturday, Dec. 17, scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. in Dunnellon. We are looking forward to this annual holiday treat guaranteed to lift the spirits. We would like to express our thanks to these young performers and their families for the time they have dedicated to practice to hone their musical talents for our enjoyment. Thank you. We would also like to take a moment and share with you the special factfilled educational experience: Mrs. Marcums Health Occupations classes, during the end of November, enjoyed several outside speakers, who gave presentations to expand students understanding of how our bodies function. The first speaker was from LifeSouth Community Blood Centers. He discussed the necessity of blood with the presentation including the five points of life and the importance of blood and blood donations within the community. DMS Health students were given a hands-on demonstration and were challenged to create the human blood cell out of Playdough. The presentation ended with a Q&A period with rewards given to the students. The second speaker to address our DMS Health class students was from the Marion County Health Department. The presentation explained the known dangers of using tobacco and tobacco products. The first hands-on demonstration, using straws, illustrated how small or restricted blood vessels become when a person smokes versus a non-smoker. The second hands-on demonstration involved the inflation of pig lungs, one healthy and one lung that had been injected with chemicals from tobacco. The demonstration allowed students to examine, and literally see the difference in lung function as they pumped air into the pig lungs. Finally, the speaker from the Health Department discussed how cigarette and tobacco companies target kids with advertising by using colorful packaging, brightly lighted displays at gas stations, and in some magazines. Students learned about some of the known health diseases and risks from smoking: Cancer, COPD, Emphysema, and finally, surgery to remove the jaw of a person who has dipped tobacco. These two speakers provided life lessons to our health students so they may make informed choices about their health now and in their future lives. Thank you to Mrs. Marcum for coordinating these excellent speakers and for the important community messages they delivered to DMS Health Occupation students. Dunnellon Middle School has a new organization, The DMS Tree Council. The purpose of the Tree Council is to promote interest in learning about trees and their many benefits to our community and environment. Founded by President Dustin Morgan, the Tree Councils goal is to beautify the Dunnellon Middle School campus and the community by planting trees, shrubs and flowers to improve the quality of life for members of our community. The trees we are planting will provide shade, produce oxygen, beautify the landscape, and provide shelter for wildlife. President Dustin Morgan and Council members Joshua White and Gregory Stein have completed the Tree Councils first improvement project at DMS by planting 35 Royal Garden variety bulbs in the Memorial Garden of the DMS Courtyard. We are awaiting the arrival of 10 flowering trees from the Arbor Day Foundation, which will be planted on campus in the spring. Community support for the new DMS Tree Council is encouraged. For a small donation, the DMS Tree Council will plant a tree at your home, business or community center. We would like to extend a huge thank you to Mrs. Cooper to becoming the advisor for this new club. If you would like more information, call Mrs. Cooper, council advisor, at 465-6720.

Dunnellon 4H Club hosts inaugural Photo Expo Dunnellon 4H club had its first Photo Expo Thursday, Dec. 1. In October, members attended a photo workshop at Rainbow Springs. Marybeth Nayfield, a photographer, taught members different techniques that photographers use when taking pictures. They were then set free in the park to experiment with some of the skills they had just learned. 4-H Leader Lou Hartigan came up with the idea of having a Photo Expo to showcase the students pieces. I thought this would be a great opportunity for the members to get feedback on their photographs and get them ready for the Southeastern Youth Fair, Hartigan said, noting the Southeastern Youth Fair takes place in February. I was really excited to see their work and we had 35 entries. Nayfield returned to the school and judged the students pieces. She was impressed with their composition and techniques. She judged them in four areas: Technical, Impact, Composition and Originality. Four points were given in each area with two students receiving a perfect score. The photographs will be on display in the Media Center at Dunnellon Elementary through Friday, Dec. 9. Results are as followed: Best of Show: Rosie Bailey, Junior Division; and Rylie Nonnemacher, Senior Division. Clover Bud Division: Tawanie Dellaria and Madilyn Sereda. Junior Division: Rosie Bailey, first place; Mason Sereda, second place; and Rosie Bailey, third place. Intermediate Division: Daniel Spence, first place, and Hannah Chung, second place. Senior Division: Rylie Nonnemacher, first place; Caitlyn Dunning, second place; and Serenity Skillman, third place. Up and Coming Artist: Maggie Barde, Kelley Stump and Andrew Mills. Special to the Riverland NewsSome of the winners of 4-H Photo Expo, front row from left, are: Andrew Mills, Tawanie Dellaria, Madilyn Sereda and Megan Sereda; back row, Maggie Barde, Kelley Stump and Rosie Bailey.

David Roberto, Boys Basketball Davie Robert had 13 points against West Port, 11 points against North Marion and 3 points against Tavares for the Tigers, hitting six 3point shots in the three games for the basketball team, which lost all three contests. The Tigers fell to West Port, 48-37; North Marion, 46-45; and Tavares, 59-26. Dunnellon is 2-5 overall and 0-1 in District 5A-7. David Roberto Matthew Franz Mat madness BELLEVIEW At the last minute Friday, Dec. 2, the Dunnellon High School wrestling team decided to compete in the Belleview Duals against the likes of Belleview, Admiral Farragut Academy, Lake Weir and Crystal River. The DHS varsity wrestling team has five returning wrestlers, one of which was injured. Michael Roberson suffered a severe knee injury in a practice and might not be able to return to wrestling this year. Coming to the meets is going to be torture, Roberson said. Dunnellon is led by tri-captain's senior A.J. Basso and juniors Alex Gonzalez and Jonathan Padilla. The Tigers other experienced grapplers are Basso, Gonzalez, Padilla and Brent Quimby. With some wrestlers only having a week of practice, this meet was mostly to give the new guys experience. Were young, inexperienced and as the year goes on well get better, said said Dunnellon coach Jeff Farris, whose team posted a 1-3 record at the Belleview Tournament. The Tigers lone victory came against Admiral Farragut Academy, 54-30. Dunnellon lost to Belleview, 54-30; Lake Weir, 53-19; and Crystal River, 54-30. We need more mat time and well get better, Farris added, noting this is the first year the Tigers don't have a fouror three-year wrestler on the squad in his six seasons as head coach. Our wrestling team is young. Our wrestling team is made up of firstand second-year wrestlers. Michael Beach, who competes at 106 pounds, had a successful night. Beach had one match against a girl in which Tigers soccer team drops three games The Dunnellon High School boys soccer team has had some tough competition in the past week. Traveling more than an hour on a bus Tuesday, Nov. 29, the Tigers played Palatka, losing 8-0. The score would have been much worse if it wasnt for Dunnellons strong defense and the strong play of the Tigers goalkeeper Matthew Deming, who made more than 20 saves. On Thursday, Dec. 1, the boys played Belleview and lost 6-0. Dunnellon allowed two first-half goals before the Rattlers offense struck in the second half. On Friday, Dec. 2, the Tigers played at Newberry, falling 4-0. Dunnellon almost scored on a corner kick when Matthew Landsbach passed it to Bobby Langley, who just missed the back of the net. Toward the end of the game Matthew Deming was switched out in goal in favor of Bobby Langley. Deming moved to striker and had a breakaway and almost scored. The Tigers played Tuesday against Lake Weir and against West Port Wednesday. Results were not available at press time. Dunnellon plays at 6 p.m. today at home against Gainesville Eastside. The Tigers will also play at 6 p.m. Tuesday at home against North Marion.

LIZ WOODWARD For the Riverland News LIZZY WRIGHT For the Riverland News DHS aims to rebound vs. Gainesville Eastside Lady Tigers drop pair of games, fall to 1-5 Youth continues to be a factor for the Dunnellon High School girls basketball team as the Lady Tigers dropped two more games last Thursday and Friday. Dunnellon, which has lost three straight, fell to Hernando, 44-35, and to Tavares, 56-23, both District 5A-7 contests. The Lady Tigers are 1-5 overall and 0-3 in District 5A-7, having lost to Crystal River, 53-42, in their district opener Monday, Nov. 27. Tanika Jackson finished with a team-high 14 points, while adding six steals and five rebounds against the Leopards. Against Tavares, Natalie Cote lead the Lady Tigers with 10 points, eight steals and five rebounds. We just need to put four quarters together without any mental lapses, Dunnellon coach Melissa Mosby said. Dunnellon, which has just one senior and one junior, was plagued earlier in the season by defense. However, Mosby said, that has steadily improved since the Lady Tigers season opener. Were getting better defensively, Mosby explained. Earlier this year, wed just leave the lane wide open for the opponent to drive through. Still, its the little things such as turnovers, foul problems and lack of execution that have proven to be a problem in games so far. We just have to mature quickly, Mosby said. Thats going to be key for us. If we can mature quickly, we can do well. Dunnellon played Tuesday night against Eustis. Results were not available at press time. The Lady Tigers play at 6 p.m. Thursday at home against Crystal River and at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 13, at Nature Coast Technical in Brooksville.

he was victorious. Overall, he posted a 4-0 mark in the tournament. Having to wrestle a girl is what I fear most going into a match, Beach explained. I was raised not to try and physically harm a woman. Brent Quimby, 113 pounds, won his first two matches against Belleview and Admiral Farragut. In the 120-pound weight division, Jordan Morgan won against Farragut and only joined wrestling because his mother forced me. I found out I was really good and I liked it, he said. In the 126-pound weight class, Jonathan Padilla had a rough night caused by the lingering sting of an early defeat. Losing a match messes with your head, Padilla said. It makes you want to see if this (wresting) is for you. Its a tough sport. In the 138-pound division, Dustin Molina had about five days of practice. I felt ill prepared because it (the meet) was last minute. Molina said. Ive only been practicing for about a week because of football. Though he had little preparation, Molina still won his second match of the night. Several of the wrestlers got a late start due to football. Cordell Carnecchia, at 160 pounds, went to his first tournament and fell short. Conditioning and getting out there with other people is a challenge, Carnecchia said. Alexander Gonzalez, a team captain, lost one of his early matches but came back to win his other three matches. I felt extremely pressured to win Gonzalez said. Since I lost my last match, I had to prove myself to show I was worthy of being a captain and I did it. Joshua Packard, who normally competes in the 220-pound weight class, wrestled in the heavyweight division Friday.

The Dunnellon Police Department will host the first Cops for Kids program Wednesday, Dec. 14, at Walmart. This program is similar to the trademark Shop with a Cop program. This is the inaugural year, the Dunnellon Police Department will host the program, Cpl. Carolina Rolfes said. We are looking forward to it becoming an ongoing success with the help of our community, she said, explaining children from throughout and around the city of Dunnellon have been chosen based on specific criteria to participate in this program. This program will give the children of our community a chance to celebrate the holidays when they may not have any other opportunity, due to financial hardships or economic circumstances, Cpl. Rolfes said. During this program, she explained, the children will have a meal provided by Gruffs and they will receive a gift card, which is provided by businesses and residents in the community. A specific amount of money will be given to purchase gifts for their family members and one for themselves, Cpl. Rolfes said. The gifts purchased by the children will be wrapped by volunteers of the Cross at the River Cowboy Church and sent home with the children. Each child will then be given a holiday meal provided by Sweet Bay to take home with them so their family can enjoy a wonderful holiday meal. The children will be paired with a police officer or staff member of the Dunnellon Police Department. The employees will escort the children around the store and help them select gifts for their family and more importantly for themselves, Cpl. Rolfes explained. The employee will provide a safe and enjoyable environment for the children throughout their shopping experience. By supporting this program you will be able to aid in the goals we have set forth for Cops for Kids, she explained. Our intentions are to build a better rapport with the future of our community by showing these children and their families how this community can make a positive impact on so many lives. With your monetary support toward this program the children of this community can have a memorable Christmas, and in return this will instill family traditions.
