A contractor with the city of Dunnellon works on installing fiber along County Road 484 earlier this
year. Hopeful of a first-quarter launch of Greenlight Dunnellon Communications, city officials con-
firmed a technical glitch in the set-top boxes delayed a full launch of services.


Greenlight Dunnellon Communications
will not hit first-quarter launch date


JEFF BRYAN
Riverland News
More than $3.5 million in
funding has been spent to
launch Greenlight Dunnellon
Communications, but those ex-
pecting to take advantage of the
city's ambitious fiber to the
home program will have to re-
main on hold.
That's because officials, hope-
ful of a first-quarter full-scale
launch of its fiber to the home
program, won't likely begin of-
fering complete services to most
potential customers in its
planned service area until the
second quarter of the year.
Exactly when Greenlight Dun-
nellon Communications will be
able to go operational sys-
temwide is an unknown at this
time, City Manager Lisa Algiere
said.
Currently, the city has 90 per-
cent of the fiber installed in
town with about 50 percent
north of the city limits, which in-
cludes Rio Vista, Rainbow
Springs and the Woodlands.
As Greenlight expands into
each area, she said, it will offer
those residents a full range of
services. The city utility,
launched in November 2010,
will offer cable, phone and high-
speed Internet.
As it stands, Greenlight is
nine months behind schedule
with no timetable for a system-
wide launch.


Originally, the fiber to the
home program was supposed to
launch in July but city officials
struggled to secure firm ship-
ment dates for the backbone of
the system.
The city finally received the
fiber in late November 2011 and
began installing it as soon as of-
ficials could.
However, one bump in the
road came as the city had to
wait for Progress Energy to ap-
prove pole attachment agree-
ments for the portions of fiber
that was being installed via aer-
ial connections.
The most recent hurdle in
completing a full launch of the
cable services was working out
a kink in the synching of the set-
top boxes, Algiere said.
She explained the root of the
problem was syncing the timing
of the units to coincide with the
recording of shows. The prob-
lem was fixed last Friday, she
said.
Now nine months behind in
launching, officials have spent
exactly $3,675,600.99 of the $7.3
million in financing the city se-
cured from Regions Bank in Or-
lando.
The city was originally sup-
posed to repay Bond C last No-
vember but was granted an
extension from banking officials
to delay the payment a year.

Greenlight Dunnellon Com-

Atlanta, Ga.-based company, re-

trail plans

Visit part of
planned event
JEFF BRYAN
Riverland News
Weeks ago, city officials
were given a glimpse of
the future if they chose to
move forward with plans
to add a bicycle trail
through the heart of
downtown Dunnellon.
Part of that plan sug-
gested officials connect it
with the Withlacoochee
Rails to Trails system, the
longest and, perhaps,
most prestigious trail in
the state.
Not only has it been a
long-term goal of the
city's but that of state and
county officials from
neighboring counties the
trail runs through.
Come Friday, local offi-
cials will get a chance to
pitch their plan to other
leaders throughout the
state and region in hopes
to tout the study recently
completed by Burton and
Associates when city offi-
cials host the "Close the
Gap" tour, which was co-
ordinated by the Florida
Greenways & Trail's
Foundation, the Rails to
Trails of the Withla-
coochee Citizens' Sup-
port Organization, and
the Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection Di-
vision of Recreation and
Parks.
According to a news re-
lease from the city, the
"Close the Gap" event be-
gins today with the
Florida Greenways &
Trail's Foundation, The
Rails to Trails of the
Withlacoochee Citizens'
Support Organization,
and the Department of
Environmental Protec-
tion Division of Recre-
ation and Parks hosting
an invitation only social
and dinner event at Fort
Cooper State Park in In-
verness.
The purpose of this
event is to inform those
participants of the "gaps"
in the 250-mile "Heart of
Florida Greenway Loop."
It will concentrate on the
north gaps from the With-
lacoochee State Trail to
Dunnellon and beyond
and the southerly gap

Water Tower coming down

Company began dismantling structure Wednesday


JEFF BRYAN
Riverland News
Historic Landmark or
public eyesore?
However one view's the
city water tower, nestled
next to the Dunnellon
Area Chamber of Com-
merce along East Pennsyl-
vania Avenue, by week's
end it will be gone forever.
Commissioned in 1936,
the cost to erect the now


decades old water tower
was more than $20,000. In
1935, city officials secured
a federal grant for more
than $10,000 and a federal
grant for $9,000-plus to
cover most of the costs to
install the tower as well as
run water lines from it.
The company con-
tracted to remove the
tower is Pittsburg Tank &
Tower Maintenance of
Henderson, Ky. The cost


to remove the tower is
$12,000; $4,000 less than a
bid received a year ago.
The reduced cost, offi-
cials said, was also made
possible by the fact the
city of Dunnellon part-
nered with the city of In-
verness, which was having
an old water tower re-
moved as well. Public

Abigail's Cafe







Abigail's Caf6, owned and operated by Christine Fernandez, recently hosted "Night of the Arts," benefitting
the Special Olympics. The March 2 event featured a modeling show, music and three artists, who donated
paintings. "We have a very active police department here in Dunnellon, with members who volunteer a lot
of their time to community support," Fernandez said. "They turn out to do whatever they can for the Spe-
cial Olympics, because it brings such joy to the children who participate." Abigail's Cafe donated all pro-
ceeds to the Special Olympics Florida. "It was an open donation affair, so people just put whatever they
could afford to in the jar," Fernandez added. For more information on how you can get involved with your
local Special Olympics, call the Dunnellon Police Department 352-465-8510 or visit www.spe-
cialolympicsflorida.org. It's fun and can be life-changing.

Murphy Oil robber
identified
The Dunnellon Police
Department has identified
the suspect in the January
Murphy Oil Gas station at
11004 N. Williams St.
Authorities issued a
warrant for Wendell
Brown, 55, whose last
known address is in Dun-
nellon.
Officials said Brown
walked up to the atten-
dant's window of the Mur-
phy Oil gas station and
demanded money, telling
the employee he had a
gun.
The employee told au-
thorities she believed
Brown had a gun and was
in fear for her life, at that
time an undetermined
amount of cash was
handed over to Brown.
Brown then left on a bi-
cycle, later information
was received that Brown
went inside the Walmart
Store, located in the same
parking lot as the Murphy
Oil station.
Brown sat on a bench lo-
cated at the front of the
cash register area. Investi-
gators viewed surveillance
video which was taken
from inside Walmart.
If captured, Brown will
face charges of grand theft
and armed.
If you have more infor-
mation about this case or
know of Brown's where-
abouts, call the Dunnellon
Police Department at 465-
8510 or Crime Stoppers at
368-STOP (7867).

from the Withlacoochee State
Trail to Brooksville via the pro-
posed Good Neighbor Trail. Only
Marion, Hernando, Lake and Cit-
rus county dignitaries have been
invited as well as select business
owners who would benefit from
closing the gaps.
On Friday, Dunnellon's Bicycle

Granada, to the new bridge over
the Withlacoochee River and the
easterly gap between the city and
the Pruitt Trailhead.
The trail tour will provide an
overview of the opportunities
available for economic and
tourism development in the re-
gion.


Harold Home, community de-
velopment director, told the City
Council Monday night at its meet-
ing that several officials will tour
the region and review plans for
the city's vision on enhancing the
community by adding a multipur-
pose trail.

In other news, the council:
Approved the request by City
Manager Lisa Algiere regarding
the city's backflow preventer
valve policy, which means the city
will cover the cost to install a
dual-check valve for its utility
customers who need one to pre-
vent the public water source from
becoming contaminated. The city,
she said, will budget for this each
year until all utility customers are
in compliance with the city's
code.
Approved a proclamation rec-
ognizing May 20 to 26 as National
Public Works Week.


Approved a proclamation rec-
ognizing April as Water Conserva-
tion Month.
Ratified and authorized the
city manager to sign an amend-
ment to an agreement with Civic-
Plus Advantage for website
redesign. The city, which is part-
nering with the company for a re-
design of its website, will pay an
additional $8,000 to have the com-
pany design a website for Green-
light Dunnellon Communications.
Approved a setback variance
for E. Vance Lawson and Cheryl
Lawson for their property on Blue
Camp Drive, allowing the couple
of add an addition to their family
room. Because of their property
boundaries, Horne said, they
would generally need a 25-foot
setback; however, the couple's
property line would not allow for
such a setback. Their back of
their property, Horne said, is bor-
dered by trees and when the cur-
rent property owners were
contacted, no response or objec-
tion was given.

Special to the Riverland News

I read with interest and sad
amusement Walt Waynes article in
the recent Riverland News.
Sad, because I am sure that Walt
Wayne is a good guy, though I have
never met him.
I am also sure that Walt Wayne's
intentions are good, and as I lis-
tened to his story I began to think
about just who Dunnellon belongs
too.
All sorts of answers began to race
through my head. Dunnellon be-
longs to those people who live here.
Those people who can vote? Those
who sleep within a given geograph-
ical boundary?
I say sleep, because if your busi-
ness and financial interest brings
you to town but you sleep outside of

LETTERS

GOP candidates need to
fight for tomorrow
I am a Republican, unabashed,
unashamed and unrelenting.
I believe in the basic tenants of the
party. These tenants are expressed in
a variety of ways and some of the lan-
guage changes from time to time.
For me, these most closely state my
case:
1. Smaller Government;
2. Bringing Power closer to the peo-
ple;
3. Fiscal Conservatism (a "balanced
budget" that reflects spending we can
afford including servicing debt that re-
duces principle);
4. A strong National Defense, more
"team play with the international com-
munity seems to be in order);
5. Individual responsibilities and
concomitant liberties for all;
6. Tolerance, inclusiveness and opti-
mism (not seeing enough of this at the
moment from the right).
Having said the above, I am not
pleased with the current process of
nominating a slate for the leadership
of America and perhaps, the Free
World.
The shallowness exhibited by the
four surviving candidates is alarming.
The lack of articulation of clear, co-
gent, palatable and concrete ideas for
all of our tomorrows is equally alarm-
ing and most annoying. The personal,
personality based and pejorative
laced rhetoric masquerading as ideas,
plans and principle is embarrassing
and unnecessary.
I believe in honest debate, I believe
in free speech, I believe in hearing
views counter to mine and I believe
it's time for the Republican candi-
dates for the nomination to run for
president.
We think and, often say, they are run-
ning for the presidency; well friends,
not yet.
It is time, in my view, for these four
to stop talking about each other and
talk about tomorrow; to talk about the
issues that face people in North Cen-
tral Florida; to talk about fiscal issues
without placing blame and putting
forth thoughtful and helpful plans that
challenge us to get involved in the
process of fixing what can be fixed and
invent the new that will replace the
worn and outdated that no longer
works.
To tell the truth I, as a Republican
who votes, am feeling abandoned, iso-
lated and on the edge of anger about
those who would be president.
A great beginning would be to stop
behaving as if every comment against
a person needs to be responded to.
The mentality of retaliation is ugly,
self perpetuating and unbecoming to
those who want us to believe in, trust
and support them.
Stop talking about one another and
talk to us.

Who really owns Dunnellon or
maybe I should say who has a right

Who do we listen to?
When I moved here 20-some odd
years ago as a young man then look-

listened to men like Bill Collins and
Mr. Dinkins, to Bob Rodgers and
Chuck and Lou Smith.
I met Mr. Dinkins after having
opened my business here, at that
time a rare occurrence, and one
that although much appreciated
was viewed by locals with reserved
skepticism.
You see then there were busi-
nessmen calling the shots and they
were not opposed to good growth in
a place they had lived their entire
lives. In fact, many had been here
for generations.


I was the new blood. I asked Mr.
Dinkins how to do battle with pests
that where killing my tomatoes at
home. He shyly told me that he had
no idea about that sort of thing, he
apologized kindly. Off I went, know-
ing full well that Mr. Dinkins could
grow anything anywhere.
Ten years later, Mr. Dinkins came
to my business walked through the
door and said, "well Jerry if you
will take some chewing tobacco and
some beer and squeeze it through a
pair of pantyhose it should kill this
critter and that."
I understood that after beginning
a family and showing up at City
Council meetings and serving on
the Chamber Board of Directors
and really investing myself for 10
years, Mr. Dinkins was welcoming
me to his home.
He recognized that this also now


THE JERSEY GIRL


Chillaxing in Vero Beach


I was in Vero Beach Saturday morn-
ing sitting on my in-laws back
porch with a book in hand, pool-
side with a cold beverage
nearby.
The warmth of the sun felt
wonderful and there's always a
slight breeze in Vero because of
the ocean. There wasn't a cloud
in the sky and it was a picture
perfect day.
The faint sound of music was
coming from the neighbor's
house and it happened to be Au
fun 60s tunes. Stuff like The Be
Chi-lites and Tony Orlando and
Dawn. It made me want to sing along
with "Groovin' on a Saturday after-
noon."
My mother-in-law, Dolores, and fa-
ther-in-law, Tony, had just moved in
the week prior and the cable wasn't
hooked up yet. I forgot how peaceful it
is without the TV blaring all the time.
There were no phones ringing and
no dogs barking. I closed my eyes and
thought to myself, "when's the last
time I had a day like this?" It'd been so
long, I couldn't even remember. I laid
back and let the sun waft over me.
Finally, a day without cooking,
cleaning and making sure everything
is done.
A weekend without a football game
or a softball tournament; a normal day
is usually filled with time consuming
errands, getting groceries, doing the
laundry and making sure everybody is
happy and that life is running
smoothly
So it was nice to have a day like this


with nothing to worry about.
I actually felt guilty that I was sitting
there doing nothing. I offered to help
unpack boxes or do something
to help, but I would've only
been in the way The only things
left to do were the big stuff.
My husband was busy in-
stalling new toilets, caulking
the front door and putting up
ceiling fans. Certainly, there
was no way he could use my
help.
drey In fact, he insisted that I did-
eem n't help, so who was I to argue?
I just stayed out of everyone's
way and kept right on reading. Oh
yeah, I was chilling and relaxing...
chillaxing.
And let me tell you, it was nice. I
wanted to sit there and cherish it.
Why don't we ever take the time to
sit and relax? Just to be quiet? To stop
and smell the roses, if you will? Does
everybody have way too much going on
in their lives to stop? Or even get
caught up? When's the last time you
read a book? It's crazy really
Dolores made these awesome Cuban
sandwiches for lunch and wouldn't
allow me to help at all. Who am I to
mess with perfection? She used that
fresh, crusty bread from Publix and
each bite was heaven.
Later that night we had a nice
seafood dinner right on the beach. The
ocean is about 2 miles from their
house. I had a shrimp trio and a nice
cold beer while looking out over the

was my home. I raised two children
here, sent one off to college and
soon the other will go as well; built
a home and experienced tragedies
and the occasional triumph.
I have made lifelong friends. I
grew up along with my children and
loved ones on the Rainbow River. I
watched while generations of re-
tirees came here grew older and
eventually left us.
I am thankful that Mr. Wayne sug-
gests we have an opportunity to
partnership. I have heard his sug-
gestions as to how to reach partner-
ship. I would like to suggest a few
steps needed as well.
First and foremost, Mr. Wayne
needs to understand that before he
moved here three years ago, myself

TIME TO SMILE


Confessions of

a street walker
Just did it! For the past month and
a half I have been a street walker!
At 4:30 p.m., you could find me
walking from the tip of Wal-Mart to the
bridge over the river and back. It is ex-
actly 3 miles.
I wanted to be acclimated to the heat
of the late day, because my niece
Kelsey talked me into participating in
a 5K Race Run for
Haven Hospice in
--- Tioga Town Center.
A 5K is equal to 3.2
miles. Kelsey is getting
married in November.
She has been doing a
"boot camp" for
women. This was her
way of challenging
Kathleen herself.
Wallace I figured I would do
the same. If we don't
challenge ourselves we stand still.
This was my first, and only question
mark race. I had no idea what to ex-
pect.
To say I don't have an athletically
competitive bone in my body is to say
the sun may shine in Florida. It's a
given.
Now, if you challenge me to a game
of Scrabble, gin rummy or the last
piece of chocolate, it is a different
story I will fight you to the death.
Much to my father's regret, I am, and
always have been, an athletic disap-
pointment. Anything beyond walking
requires skills I do not posses.
We arrived at Tioga Town Center
about 3 o'clock in the afternoon.
If you have never been there, I
highly recommend a visit. You can
walk to the shops, see some beautiful
homes with New England charm and
enjoy strolling through a park setting.
The only problem is you can never
leave. You forget that this small town
is in the middle of hell.
I would move there if I was wealthy
and had lost all my marbles and de-
cided to live in a high-traffic area
again. It is a shame that this adorable
little place is located in Gainesville.
Sitting in traffic for an hour to drive
a 3-mile distance makes me grateful to
live in this middle-of-nowhere para-
dise called Dunnellon.
When the gun went off at 4:30,
Kelsey and I hit the ground running.
OK, it was more of a power walk. I
put everything I had into my strides.
Kelsey looked like she was off for a
Sunday afternoon stroll on the beach.
It was so not fair!
For every one step she took with her
long legs, I had to take three.
Being vertically challenged is such a
disadvantage.
Midway, we did a little jogging. As a
pint-sized competitor said, she "left
me in the dust."
I must say that walking a straight
path like U.S. 41 is very different than
walking a mapped course of a neigh-
borhood.
Admittedly, I spent way too much
time looking at the gorgeous homes
rather than concentrating on my walk-
ing. The fact that it started to rain did-
n't help much, either.
When the wind picked up and the
lightning struck, I had a brief thought
of sitting on one of the inviting porches
and napping in a rocking chair.
Luckily, both passed quickly.
Much to my dismay, I was shocked by
the number of people who cheated by
taking shortcuts and bypassing the
route. What was more discouraging
was the fact that the majority of the
cheaters were of my gender!
What's the point?
Why bother racing if you are going to
cheat?

Quiz: What should you do


with your tax refund?


LINDA SPENCE
Special to Riverland News
Ah, tax time.
After mounds of paper-
work and hours of filing,
you might just get some
precious dollars back in
the form of that blessed
tax return. Now, with
money in hand, you have
to decide what to do with
it. Treat yourself to some-
thing pricy? Begrudg-
ingly hide it in your
savings account? Take
this quiz to see if you
know what to do with
your tax return. The an-
swer may surprise you!
Use it to reduce your
debt. Use at least a third
of your return to reduce
the amount of money you
are paying to lenders to
use their money.
Save it. Set aside a
third of your money for
saving. Both long term
and short term saving re-
quires compromise and
sacrifice, but can have
impressive long term re-
wards.
Short term savings
could be an emergency
fund; most emergencies
cost less than $500. Some

fighting for the nomina-

Writer of letter
missed point
This letter responds to
"Religion, God don't mix"
from the Letters to the
Editor in the March 15
edition of the Riverland
News.
The author seems to
have entirely missed the
point of the issue he was
trying to discuss. He com-
plains bitterly for seven
paragraphs about the
supposed toxic effect of
Christian influence on
governments, which is
not the issue here, and
seems blithely uncon-
cerned about real issue
of "government intrusion


tire, a broken washer or
lost cell phone. Each of
these events can easily
bungle our budget. With
an emergency fund, that
crisis is reduced to an
event that you're pre-
pared to handle.
Retirement, educa-
tion and a future large
purchase (such as a vaca-
tion home, new car, etc.)
are long term goals. The
sooner you begin saving
for your long term goals,
the more time your
money has to grow.
Money grows because the
interest your money
earns gains interest, as
well. Remember, it's
never too late to start sav-
ing. Each dollar saved is
a dollar set aside to earn
interest.
Be kind to yourself.
Use a third of your return
to splurge on something
you want. Read that
again. Treat yourself to
something you may not
need, but simply want.
This will be a guilt-free
purchase if you plan for
it. Not only will you feel
good that you rewarded
yourself, you will not feel
resentful because your

seems not to grasp the
meaning and importance
of the first amendment,
which states in part:
"Congress shall make
no law respecting the es-
tablishment of religion,
or prohibiting the free
exercise thereof; ..."
In other words, one, the
constitution does not per-
mit the government to
create a state religion
and, two, the constitution
bars the government
from interfering in the
free exercise of religion.
The so called contra-
ception controversy is not
really about access to
birth control at all, which
is inexpensive and read-
ily available. The issue
here is that the Obama
administration is violat-
ing the second part of the
above clause by requiring
religious institutions, and
owners of private busi-
nesses, to violate their
deeply held religious be-
liefs. These groups are
being forced to provide
services they consider
immoral, i.e., contracep-
tives and/or abortion in-
ducing drugs.
This law cannot be al-
lowed to stand. If it does,
it elevates and effectively
substitutes the moral
opinions of the state for
religiously based moral
principles, thus imperil-
ing our precious and
hard won religious free-
doms.


tax return went to some-
one other than you. Let's
face it. If we do not treat
ourselves, we still think
we deserve it and will
make a purchase on im-
pulse, likely causing buy-
ers' remorse.
All of the above.
If you selected D, you
are correct. By paying
down your debt you re-
duce the amount you owe
and also the interest you
are paying. By having an
emergency fund, you re-
duce the stress associ-
ated with unexpected
expenses. Long-term sav-
ings help you realize your
dreams. Treating your-
self with a planned and
budgeted purchase just
feels good and helps
stave off more expensive
impulse buys. A, B, C and
D are all correct answers.

No, these two commis-

of how offensive what

I believe that they be-

Somehow there still
seems to be a feeling,
something like having an
uninvited guest come to
your home plop them-
selves down at the dinner
table and begin instruct-
ing you on how they like
their chicken cooked.
Everybody has a right
to be heard here.
With honest compro-
mise a portion of every

However, if you're
oblivious to anyone's
needs beyond your own,

Bill Collins, "you can

Gallery in Dunnellon for

Have you not seen the
full-color handouts the
City Council had the
night of the Dec. 28, 2011,
hearing?
I resent you referring
to the resident who
passed Ms. Bryant infor-
mation as the "mob
leader." I do not feel that
any Rainbow Springs res-
ident is a member of any
"mob." We are citizens
who resent what was
done "behind our backs"
for months prior to the
Rainbow Springs resi-
dents knowing the plans
to purchase Rainbow
Springs Utilities.
The writer needs to be
sure he has correct infor-
mation. The admission
fee for KP Hole was
raised from $3, not $1, to
$5. I verified this with the
county on March 21, 2012.
Unless Mr. Stone "was
counting votes" for some-
thing other than the
County Commission, he is
not running for re-elec-
tion this year.
As for Ms Bryant, her
term is not up until No-
vember 2014. As of this
point, she has not de-
cided what she will do in
2014. This can be verified
with her.
In closing, has the
writer forgotten how hos-
tile things were at times
when he served on the
Dunnellon City Council?

Esch told the Council ear-
lier this year when the bid
was awarded that the com-
pany said it would have the
tower removed within
three to four days, barring
any complications or in-
clement weather
Pittsburg Tank & Tower
Maintenance began dis-
mantling the tower
Wednesday, Esch said, and
is expected to have the job
completed by Saturday
A proponent of disman-
tling the tower, Vice Mayor
Fred Stark said it's taken a
long time to get the job
done.
"It was supposed to be
done three years ago," he
explained.
After receiving an up-
date about the dismantling
of the tower at Monday's
City Council meeting,
Starke joked with his fel-
low council members and
city staff.
"I want a piece of that
tower," he said.
Pittsburg Tank & Tower
Maintenance was origi-
nally supposed to be here a
month ago; however, bad
weather in Missouri de-
layed its arrival to begin re-
moval of the tower The
company will also be re-
sponsible for removal of
debris.
Rarely used since the
city constructed a second
water tower in the Vogt
Springs area, city officials
had long sought to have the
tower torn down for a mul-
titude of reasons, mainly
safety concerns as vandals
have made it a target de-
spite soaring more than 100
feet in the city skyline.
Because of safety con-
cerns, city officials urged
the public to steer clear of
the area until the job is
complete.

The Dunnellon High School var-
sity softball team had a difficult
Spring Break
Despite the break, the Lady Tigers
had two games. Trying to clear their
heads of the fun, they faced an oppo-
nent they've faced before, the Crystal
River Pirates.
Unfortunately, Dunnellon couldn't
get the Spring Break fever out of

their heads, losing 13-3, Thursday,

Nicole Drew pitched a complete

ankle injury. Drew had two strike-
outs, four walks and allowed 10 hits.
Alora Thompson and Ashlee Win
went 2-for-3. Cierra Thompson had
one hit and Eleanor Goodloe had an
RBI. Alora and Cierra Thompson,
Goodloe and Winn all had stolen

Jordon Boley, left, and Connor Went, baseball players at Dunnellon High School, got a special
surprise while attending a Washington Nationals Spring Training game during Spring Break.The
two juniors were asked to be bat boys during the game.They were given hats and warm-up gear
for their services.

DHS baseball players serve as bat boys for MLB team


JEFF BRYAN
Riverland News
While most Dunnellon High
School students were scatter-
ing across the state, marking
the beginning of their Spring
Breaks, Jordon Boley and Con-
nor Wentz were off to catch
the Washington Nationals in
Spring Training action.
Little did they realize what
awaited them shortly after ar-
riving at the Nationals' Spring
Training complex while visit-
ing a friend of Boley's aunt


who provided the two Dunnel-
lon High juniors with tickets
to the exhibition contest.
During their visit, an official
with Washington came into the
office, panicked because the
team's regular bat boys didn't
show up at the park. With no
substitutes readily available,
the official asked the two-
sport stars to lend a hand.
"Their manager confronted
us about it and we took the
offer," Boley explained. "So
they gave us uniforms and hel-
mets and we went down on the


field."
While Boley was quick with
an answer, Wentz, his friend
and teammate on both the
football field and the baseball
diamond was left speechless.
"I was just kind of surprised,
I didn't know what to say," he
said. "I wasn't saying anything,
it was just like air was coming
out but nothing else. The cat
got my tongue, didn't know
what to say."
Of course, Wentz found the

State schedules license-free fishing day Saturday, April 7


Event is first of four slated this year


Special to the Riverland News
Grab your fishing rods and
tackle box. It's almost time -
April 7 to take advantage of the
first of four license-free fishing
days scheduled for this summer
in Florida, according to Gov Rick
Scott.
"Fishing is a great way to enjoy
Florida's beautiful outdoors,
great weather and a wonderful
day with family and friends,"
Scott said. "License-free fishing


days are the perfect opportunity
to discover the fun and excite-
ment of fishing and Florida's
great outdoors."
You won't need a recreational
fishing license on the special
days listed below.
April 7 Freshwater; June 2 -
Saltwater; June 9 Freshwater;
and Sept. 1- Saltwater.
The April 7 date occurs during
a productive freshwater fishing
period when the weather is usu-
ally comfortable. Plus it is Easter


weekend, and many people like
to fill the weekend with a variety
of activities with family or
friends.
The June 2 free saltwater fish-
ing day coincides with the first
weekend of Gulf red snapper sea-
son and National Fishing and
Boating Week, which means
there will be lots of other related
activities going on too.
The June 9 date for freshwater
fishing also coincides with the
last day of National Fishing and
Boating Week. Last year, 38 states
had at least one license-free fish-
ing day during this annual event.


Sept. 1 is the Saturday of Labor
Day Weekend, when lots of peo-
ple have time to recreate and cel-
ebrate the traditional
end-of-summer holiday In addi-
tion, bay scallops, lobster and
snook will be open for harvest on
this date.
All other bag limit, season and
size restrictions apply on these
dates. The license-free fishing
designation applies only to recre-
ational fishing, not commercial.
To make your free fishing day
successful, check out
MyFWC.com/Fishing for fishing
tips, locations and rules.

Fun is a relative
quantity One per-
son's fun may be
somebody else's drudg-
ery and pain. I know
someone, and her name
shall remain anonymous,


whose idea of fun is root-
ing through thrift stores
all day long. That concept
of fun has never dark- amended to include one
ened the shadowy corri- very important ingredi-
dors of my mind. ent. On my own, I proba-
The idea of spending bly would not even think
time in the park has to be of going to the park. Not


that I do not like the
park, I just would not
come up with the idea all
by myself.
Then, the important
equation of fun is a little
granddaughter.
A day at the park by my-
self does not equal to
very much fun. After all, I
have talked to myself and
I am rather boring. I have
heard all my stories be-
fore and by the time, I tell
myself the story for the
19th time it is no longer
funny.
A day at the park with
the granddaughter does
equal fun.


I think grandchildren
are God's way of remind-
ing grandfathers how
much energy we do not
have and, for that matter,
never had.
The date was set and
my wife and I set off to
take our little grand-
daughter to the park. One
of the main features of
this park was a merry-go-
round. I am rather cer-
tain they had
merry-go-round when I
was a child but for the
life of me, I cannot re-
member the last time I
took a spin.
As we set out for our
destination in the park, I
nonchalantly told the lit-
tle granddaughter that

there was a merry-go-
round in the park. That
was the end of my talk for
the trip. The whole way
there, all she could talk
about was the merry-go-
round and how fast it
went how many ponies
there were. By the time
we got to the merry-go-
round I had learned
about all there is to know
about a merry-go-round
from a 6-year-old's view-
point.
According to her, the
merry-go-round is about
the most fun you could
ever have in the whole
wide world. And, she em-
phasized, "I'm serious."
We rounded the corner,
before us was the park
and in the middle of the
park was this mysterious,
mystical merry-go-round.
It elicited a deep heart-
felt "Wow," from the
younger member of our
walking troop.
She immediately began
running and pulling me
along to the point where I
had to walk a little faster
than I normally walk. I
mean, at my age running
is completely out of the
question. And so, she ran,
I shuffled enthusiasti-
cally and before long we
were in front of the
merry-go-round.
"Isn't it beautiful,
grandpa," she almost
whispered.
We did not stand long
admiring the merry-go-
round. She let out a
squeal and said, "Come
on, grandpa. Let's go ride
the merry-go-round."
My plans were very
simple. I would let her
get on the merry-go-
round, pay for the ticket,
sit down on the bench
and watch her go round
and round and round.
Well, that was my plan.
She, on the other hand,
had other plans.
With almost superhu-
man force she drug me
past the admission gate, I
hardly had enough time
to pay for the ride, to the
pony she was going to
ride.
"This is my pony,
grandpa. Where's yours?"
I quickly searched my
plans and could nowhere
find any notation about
riding a pony on a merry-
go-round on this particu-
lar day. Instead, I helped
her up on her pony and I
stood by her and said,
"We'll do this one to-
gether." She was too ex-
cited about riding the
merry-go-round that she
did not respond.

continued from page 12
I grabbed hold of one
part of the pony, right
next to us was another
pony and I held onto that.
"Are we ready to go,
grandpa?"
No sooner had she said
that the bell rang and the
merry-go-round began
going round. And round.
And round.
Not only that, the pony
she was on, went up and
down and the pony next
to her that I was hanging
onto went down and up. It
was as if I was in perpet-
ual motion. It seemed as
if that merry-go-round
ride lasted 17 hours.
Eventually, with my head
spinning and my stomach
doing whatever stomachs
do, we came to the end of
our merry-go-round.
Being grateful that we
have finished our ride, I
proceeded to disengage
her from the pony. How-
ever, that was not her
plan.
"Oh, grandpa, just one
more time."
The problem with
grandfathers is that
nowhere in their vocabu-
lary lurks in any fashion
any sound resembling
"no." Consequently, we
went round on the merry-
go-round "just one more
time."
I learned a deep lesson
that afternoon. When a
little granddaughter says
"just one more time," it is
not in any literal sense of
the word that they say it.
I'm not prepared to say
how many times we went
on that merry-go-round,
needless to say, by the
end of the afternoon I
was in a complete whirl
not knowing whither I
was coming or whither I
was going.

The DMS eighth-grade
dance is scheduled for
Saturday, May 5. We would
love to see every one of
our eighth-grade students
attend the dance this year.
To be eligible to attend the
dance, you need to meet
the following criteria:
Registered at DMS.
Have a 2.0 GPA.
No Out-of-School
Suspensions.
The criteria can be at-
tained by all of our stu-
dents and it would be
absolutely phenomenal to
see each of you at the
dance. Students, your
eighth-grade dance is an
experience you will re-
member the rest of your
life and a way to say good-
bye to your middle school
years as you prepare to
say hello to your high
school years. We hope you
will plan on attending this
fun and memorable event

Rediscover your state during Heritage Month


MOLLY LUCIEER
Special to the Riverland News
There is no better time to ex-
plore the wonders of our state
than during Florida Heritage
Month. Whether you are a Florida
native, have relocated here or are
simply a visitor escaping the cold
winters of the North, there is a
multitude of historic sites to visit
and activities to enjoy


Begin planning your rediscov-
ery of Florida with a trip to your
Dunnellon Public Library. There
you will find material on the
state's history and travel books to
whet your appetite. Be sure to
check out "Florida Curiosities"
by David Grimes and Tom Becnel.
As its cover states, this book in-
cludes "quirky characters, road-
side oddities and other offbeat
stuff" of the "Sunshine State."


The Marion County Public Li-
brary System's website, li-
brary.marioncountyfl.org, has
excellent databases covering
Florida's history, culture and en-
vironment. The Florida Memory
Project is a great resource for
original documents and photo-
graphs from the collection of the
State Archives of Florida. Any li-
brary staff member can direct
you to these free resources.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be
careful about doing someone a favor
when you don't know the full story
behind the request. Don't rely on
someone's unsubstantiated assur-
ances. Insist on all the facts before you
act.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
That workplace problem still needs
your attention before you finally can
close the book on it. Meanwhile, a
long-anticipated reunion gets closer to
becoming a happy reality.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You
might be demanding more from others
than they can give. Best advice: Have
a long and frank talk to determine what
the facts are. Tensions should abate as
the week winds down.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22)
Aspects are favorable throughout this
week for making contacts that could be
important to your career plans. Mean-
while, an old friend offers the advice
you're seeking.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) It's time
to stop licking your wounds from past
mistakes. Get up and get going toward
your future. Loyal friends will be there
to help the Lion get back into rip-roar-
ing shape.
VIRGO (August 23 to September
22) Take time out to go over what's
expected of you before you begin your
new project. Otherwise, you run the
risk of pushing yourself harder than

you need to.
LIBRA (September 23 to October
22) An unusual request could put you
in an awkward position. Best advice:
Deal with it immediately. The longer
you delay, the more difficult it will be
to get out of it.
SCORPIO (October 23 to Novem-
ber 21) You should feel recharged and
ready for whatever your workaday
world holds for you. The same posi-
tive energy spills over into your per-
sonal relationships.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) A prospect might be less
than it appears to be. Like the Archer
in your sign, you always aim for the
truth. And this is no time to settle for
less than full disclosure.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to
January 19) Start doing some seri-
ous thinking about a career move that
could entail more than just changing
job sites. Some lifestyle changes also
might be involved.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to Feb-
ruary 18) With tensions easing at the
workplace, a more positive environ-
ment once again encourages the free
flow of ideas so typical of the always-
innovative Aquarian.
PISCES (February 19 to March
20) Show some of that usually hid-
den steel-strong Piscean backbone,
and stand up for yourself if you hope
to make a case for that promotion you
know you deserve.
BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy
doing new things and staying ahead
of the crowd. You would make a fine
sports coach or military leader.
