SERVINGDUNNELLONANDRAINBOWSPRINGS Thursday, April 19, 2012Vol 30 No. 26 75 cents RS POA gauging residents interest in course Direction sought from members In August 2011, Mark Kaprelian announced he was selling Rainbow Springs Golf and Country Club. Now, he might have an interested party in purchasing the course the Rainbow Springs Property Owners Association. But before any deal can be completed, residents of the POA will have to take a vote about the issue. However, Bob Frankenfield, president of the POA, said the first step the Board of Directors will take is to gauge interest of the residents through a preliminary vote before officials spend any money. If the preliminary indication is a no, the POA Board will cease further action, but if the sentiment from residents is that its an option worth exploring, theyll proceed with a number of steps, including a complete financial analysis. This is not a Board decision, this is a community decision, he said, noting a letter is to be sent to residents this week to gauge their interest. But were not spending a dime of the communitys money until they tell us to move forward with a simple yes or no. Frankenfield noted Fire levels gas station The Lakhanis lost a piece of family history Sunday night. The longtime Dunnellon business owners were jolted from their bed early Monday morning when their daughter Brittanys longtime boyfriend, Ronnie Dawson, called them to tell them the news: their business, the Sunoco Gas Station on U.S. 41, was engulfed in flames. Michelle Dalziel, a motorist, was driving past the station on her way home, saw the flames and immediately called 911 to report the fire. I noticed smoke and light by the Sunoco Station blowing over the highway. The closer I approached, I noticed flames behind the building, she wrote in a JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsFire investigators enter the remains of the burnt-out building once home to the Sunoco Gas Station along U.S. 41, north of Walmart.

City leaders, representatives from Burton & Associates as well as Lewis Bryant from Kimley-Horn & Associates will make presentations. City Manager Lisa Aligere on Tuesday said she is still awaiting confirmation from officials with the Southwest Florida Water Management District (Swiftmud) if they will be present. Burton & Associates will address concerns about the citys tiered water rate structure while Bryant will give a status update about the condition of the utility system and planned capital improvements. The meeting will be from 9:30 a.m. to noon Wednesday, April 25, at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church on U.S. 41, slightly south of the State Road 40 intersection. Harriet Daniels, the communications coordinator for Greenlight Communications, did confirm there will be a Question and answer period in which officials will take questions from utility customers. However, the biggest concerns for Rainbow Festival honors towns history Dunnellon will be booming once again, as the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce celebrates the towns mining boom of the 1800s with its annual Boomtown Days Dunnellon.

Festivities begin today with an aquatic/sports show in Dunnellon Plaza with a Poker Run and Chinese Auction also slated. The Chinese Auction will take place at Sears in the Dunnellon Plaza while the Poker Run will start at Gruffs Tap & Grill.

Suddenly, the pilot quickly pulled back on the throttle and she was headed back toward the heavens. By the time Melissa Pemberton finished her routine, the applause and roar from the crowd of 60 to 80 people gathered Saturday at the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport made almost as much noise as the single-engine craft that took to the skies. For three days during this past weekend, members of the U.S. National Aerobatic Team patrolled the skies above the decades-old facility, drawing plenty of spectators during the teams practice sessions at the airport. Bob Steele, a Citrus Hills resident, said once he heard about the U.S. National Aerobatic Team practicing, he dropped what he was doing, grabbed a chair and his binoculars and made the trek to the airport to catch Saturdays practice session. Theyre very good, excellent, Steele said. Its not very often you get a chance to see something like this, its pretty special. I just love it. Its a great opportunity to see them practice. You can see everything. Steel, a pilot himself, said hes not on the level of those who flew throughout the day. Its impressive, very impressive, he said.

WE MATCH COMPETITOR PRICES On RX Drugs Woman charged with aggravted battery A 31-year-old Ocala woman was charged Sunday with aggravated battery causing bodily harm after striking a woman repeatedly and nearly biting a finger off in an April 9 altercation, an arrest report stated. According to the report, Moriah T. Donson was visiting Amy Smith at her residence in the 20900 block of W. Pennsylvania Ave. on Monday, April 9, to socialize with Smith. Donson arrived at the location intoxicated and angry, needing a place to stay while she separated from her boyfriend. The report stated Smith agreed to let Donson stay at her house for a short period of time. Approximately two hours later, the report stated, after Donson had arrived at Smith's house, Smith informed her that her husband, Randy, would be arriving and that Donson needed to leave. Donson became angry and began yelling at Smith, telling her she was not going to leave because it was Smith's husband who wanted her to leave, not her. According to the report, Smith told authorities Donson was highly intoxicated and continued to become angry and upset with her due to the inability of her to remain at the house. Smith advised that Donson then began to strike her in the face with a closed fist. The report stated Donson held Smith against the wall using Smith's hair, repeatedly striking her in the face with a closed fist; therefore, Smith used an open hand to push Donsons face away from her. Upon doing so, the report stated, Donson bit Smith's hand and finger causing great bodily harm and disfigurement. Smith informed authorities Donson continued to strike her against her will. According to the report, due to size differential Smith was unable to remove herself from Donsons grasp and flee. Smith told authorities while continued to strike her repeatedly, she began reaching for an object to strike Donson with because her actions were not strong enough to stop Donson. The report stated Smith reached behind her and removed a glass drinking cup from a table and struck Donson in the face at which time Donson stopped her assault on Smith, allowing her to escape and call authorities after locking herself in her home. Once inside the residence, Smith told authorities, Donson stood up and began striking the windows in the house and used a broom handle in an attempt to get through the front door. Donson was flown to Shands Hospital in Gainesville for treatment of her head wound. Once authorities were able to speak with her, she was unable to provide details regarding the incident and provided numerous inconsistencies when doing so. She was charged upon her release from the hospital. According to jail records, Donson bonded out Sunday. Her bond was $5,000.

River views Misdeeds of the Rainbow Springs Property Owners AssociationThe Rainbow Springs POA website states: This site has been established to improve communications within our community, increase member participation in the affairs of our community, and to keep you, the member, aware of activities and events that could affect you. To me the BOD and manager have failed on all three of these areas. Improve communications within our community Residents were not properly informed of the Monday, April 2, Emergency BOD meeting. This announcement was not posted on the website. It was posted on The Beach and Country Club bulletin boards only the day before the meeting. You have been asked previously to post information on the website. To increase member participation in the affairs of our community I, as well as other residents, have asked volunteered/asked to serve on various committees only to never be chosen. To keep you, the member, aware of activities and events that could affect you In three months time you have failed to do this twice: First, there was no information issued from the BOD or manager prior to the Dec. 21, 2011, city of Dunnellon workshop to discuss purchasing Rainbow Springs Utilities and the Dec. 28, 2011, city of Dunnellon hearing to vote on this purchase; and secondly, the lack of information posted on the website regarding the aforementioned April 2 BOD meeting. Some questions: Who decided to pursue an MSTU in order to purchase the RS Country Club? When was this decision made? Have you already given Myra Tedder $500 (or whatever the current rate is) to begin the MSTU process? Are you going to follow the correct procedure for voting to establish an MSTU: A residents meeting to decide whether the residents want to pursue an MSTU, and then, voting to establish an MSTU and no fooling around with the petitions. Why, when the BOD is supposedly against the city of Dunnellons purchase of Rainbow Springs Utilities, would you even think about burdening the residents with an additional financial burden? Do you realize what is involved in owning/managing a successful country club golf course, pro shop, swimming pool, tennis courts, restaurants, etc. Who would do this? The big issue is the liability this would place on all residents. Numerous residents did not purchase homes here because of the country club, so why would they want to purchase it when they would never use any of its facilities? Maybe there is an upside to the residents owning the country club. If The buzz is all for naught Make sense of this I t drives me crazy when things dont make sense, like people going to Outback Steakhouse and ordering chicken for instance or going to Steak and Shake and getting the grilled cheese. Odd or unusual behavior? I think they used to call it, things that make you go hmmm If Im watching a show on TV, it has to make sense or Ill turn it off. Soap operas are notorious for that. I like all stories to have a beginning, middle and an end and I prefer happy endings. I get so frustrated when a movie ends and you have no idea what just happened. Like at the very end of Cast Away when Tom Hanks turns the car around. Where did he go? Did he go back to get Helen Hunt or did he go back to find that neighbor lady? I guess well never know. Remember in Titanic when Rose tells Jack that shell never let go and then she pushes him under the water? That just never made sense to me. I talked about that one for weeks, and can anybody tell me what Eyes Wide Shut was all about? Good thing I have my 6-year-old grandson around to explain Star Wars to me, otherwise Id be lost. So maybe its not the movies that dont make sense, maybe its just the way my brain works or doesnt work. Are you beginning to see a pattern here? When I watch a movie, I just want to be entertained. I dont want to figure out the whole plot, too. Even in real life, I want things to make sense. For instance, if somebody doesnt like people, why are they working in customer service? And when you call customer service, have you noticed how the volume is so low and it sounds like theyre a million miles away? I know youve laughed about that one. Does it make sense that healthy food costs way more than unhealthy? Or that if you take the fat and sugar out of food, it costs $2 more? How confusing that one health guru will tell you to avoid carbs, while another one will tell you to avoid dairy. If you bought all the supplements that Dr. Oz suggests you need, you would have no money left over for the food. Believe me Ive tried it. How can you love tomatoes, but not ketchup? How can you be Italian and not like garlic? Or French and not like to kiss? Its kind of like when your husband tells you not to treat him like youre his mother, but then he wants you to find his socks and remind him to put the toilet seat down. Sorry, honey, I had to throw that one in. I guess we all have our own personal quirks, and thats what makes the world an interesting place to live. I wouldnt expect anybody to understand my personal preference for stale Cheetos or the way I like to mix my meat, potatoes and vegetables all together. It seems like we are all odd in our own way.

In addition, the State Board of Education (SBE) raised FCAT cut scores for each passing level (Level 1 Level 5) in December 2011 to be applied in spring 2012 thereby further raising the achievement bar. While everyone agrees that increased accountability and high academic standards are certainly in the best interest of our students; the reality of these changes in terms of real life consequences for students needs to be recognized and understood. The combination of a much more rigorous FCAT test, coupled with raising the threshold for receiving a passing score will result in a dip in student scores. There is great concern that many Florida students will not be successful on FCAT 2.0. For example, students that have consistently scored Level 3 (passing rate) their entire school career could easily score below the passing level with the new standards. The most dramatic impact will likely be in grades 3, 4, and 10. What does all this mean in terms of student performance on FCAT 2.0? There will be an increase in the number of students failing to pass FCAT 2.0 Subsequently, there will be an increase in the number of students having to take remediation classes for the Scoring for FCAT changes this spring F or a better portion of the most recent weekend, we spent it camped out at the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport, chatting up members of the U.S. National Aerobatic squad. Theyre a wonderful group of men and women, very down to earth, unless they are several hundred feet or several thousand feet in the air. They are the best our nation has to offer in their sport. In this country, that says a lot. Approaching the airport from the east and west various days along County Road 484, we were under the distinct impression we thought wed be bombarded by a noise so hideous wed beg for earplugs. Oddly enough, we heard very little. It wasnt until we reached the airport that we heard anything. Even then, it didnt sound as if a squadron of bomber pilots was making a run. We are not saying there wasnt a touch of noise, but it was minimal at best; and what would one expect at an airport besides the sound of airplanes flying overheard? Funny, some folks in the area make it sound like a war zone when aerobatic pilots are flying our friendly skies. And theyve done their best to make noise of their own regarding the aerobatic box in place at the airport. Perhaps the best question is what exactly did you expect when you purchased your homes next to an airport? Had you bought your homes next to a golf course, would you have been shocked to see golfers zipping past your home? Perhaps stunned if a golf ball wound up in your yard? The many folks who attended Saturdays meet-and-greet with the pilots were given a chance to ask questions about aerobatics and learn about safety protocols necessary for the sport. Spectators given the opportunity to peek inside of the planes were mesmerized. Their comments and reactions about the training might have varied, but the one consistent was this: How many times in your life can you say you witnessed something as spectacular as this? We couldnt agree more. And while we are sure it might be easier said than done to host a fullscale regional event at the airport, we would certainly encourage county officials to weigh the pros and cons of creating an annual event. We certainly see economic benefits that would arise from it, and it would be great publicity for promoting businesses to consider relocating their services to a facility willing to offer events that showcase the aviation industry. Wed encourage those naysayers to realize the benefits of such a facility and the benefits of the economic impacts it could have for this area. Jane Ashman Starting this spring, Floridas Department of Education is changing the way it scores the FCAT, the annual standardized test many students take. The standards are going up, which means earning higher scores will be more difficult. As well, the formula for school grades will change. These changes affect all public schools, including Dunnellon-area schools. Consequently, student scores and school grades will likely drop, but not because schools are getting worse as some folks contend. Higher grading scales mean more challenges ahead. In light of these changes, I want to share this information with you from the Department of Education. Audrey Beem See FCAT page 5 See JERSEY GIRL page 5 See LETTERS page 5

we own it, then we could play golf, tennis, etc., free of charge. In fact, since the POA has a Country Club charge account and I belong to POA, can I charge my golf, food and beverage purchases on this account? Our BOD President, Bob Frankfield, has preached how the road repaving and entrance way signs would improve our property values. What do you think the city of Dunnellons purchase of RS Utilities has done to our property values, let along what the tax burden of owning the country club would do? Mr. Frankenfield, do you, any other BOD member or the POA manager, want to purchase my home? The BOD got the residents into the mess of the city of Dunnellon buying our utility system, because you would not listen to or believe us when some of us told you it was going to happen and you denied it when you knew it was true. This time please listen to the residents and do not even think about trying to establish an MSTU to purchase the country club.Joan K. Duggins Rainbow Springs Buy Rainbow Springs Golf Course? Vote noRainbow Springs Golf & Country Club wants to sell as soon as possible. Our Property Owners Association board has decided to facilitate the sale by arranging for us, the residents, to buy it. All property owners will receive a mailing soon, which asks you to vote on the idea without any mention of cost or how the facility would be operated. If the POA Board counts a majority of yes votes, they plan to proceed and spend at least $10,000 of POA money doing an inventory and value estimate on the club. We dont even know what will constitute a majority. Then, there would be another vote to authorize the purchase, or, hopefully, not. How many residents want to buy into a shaky deal? The asking price is $2.5 million! The bottom line is that we could be out $12,000 to $15,000 with no good derived from the spending of our money. When this was discussed at the last POA Board meeting, I suggested to President (Bob) Frankenfield that the $1,200 cost of this first mailing should be paid by the club, not the residents. He blew off the idea, preferring to spend our money first. Please give him a call if you would rather have RSG&CC pick up the tab for their solicitation. In any case, when you receive your letter from Mr. Frankenfield, please vote no and kill this bad idea.

He rushed in and out so quickly, I was unable to ask where he was from and thank him. Perhaps he would be interested to know how we handled the evening gowns left with us.

School grades will fall significantly. Increased costs to school districts due to an increase in the number of remediation classes. Potential elimination of elective courses in order to accommodate an increase in remediation courses. What is truly important to remember is that lower FCAT test scores do not necessarily indicate that a student learned less this year than in prior years. It does indicate the student has work to do to master the new curriculum well enough to successfully progress to the new higher levels of accountability as required by the state. As teachers and students spend more time working with the new and higher expectations placed upon them, it is expected that test scores will rebound, student knowledge will increase, and ultimately the student will be better prepared for life after high school, either in college or the workplace. To that end, all of us students, parents, teachers, principals, administrators, superintendents and our communities must work together to continue to ensure the academic success of our students, which in turn directly correlates to the economic vitality of our communities.

M any flowering plants can be encouraged to produce better and longer-lasting displays with the minimum of effort. A plant produces flowers in order to reproduce and ensure the survival of the species. Once a plant has flowered and fertilization has taken place, it tends to put its energy into producing seed at the expense of more flowers. With some popular plants, such as zinnias and sweet peas, flowering can stop altogether. You can prevent this happening by simply removing the flowers as they start to fade, thereby, preventing the formation of seedpods. This technique is known as deadheading. By removing blooms as they fade, deadheading also improves the current display. Some flowering plants are worth deadheading to prevent them from self-seeding all over the place and causing a weed problem. All flowering plants respond to an annual application of high-potash fertilizer, such as a tomato feed or a dressing of sulphate of potash, which will also promote flower production. How you go about deadheading will depend on both the type of flowers and your attitude to gardening. Ive seen some particularly tidy gardeners removing blooms fastidiously when the flowers are barely over, while others wait until the blooms have turned brown. For me, the ideal time is somewhere in-between. I like to get into the habit of deadheading as I walk around the garden. This means flowering plants get the once-over at least once a week from early summer to early autumn. With any luck! How to deadhead How you remove the flowers from a plant should depend on the type of growth it produces. Long flower stalks. Plants that produce one flower head at the end of a stalk, such as pelargoniums, should have the fading flower removed along with the stalk snapping it off cleanly from the stem. Bulbs, such as daffodils and tulips, are the exception. These should have the flower cut off leaving the stalk intact. Repeatflowering plants (such as roses) and those that produce flower spikes (such as delphiniums and foxgloves) are also treated differently see below. Short flower stalks. Plants that produce flowers on short stalks, such as fuchsias, should have the fading bloom removed by pinching off the stalk behind each fading flower between finger and thumb. Masses of flowers. Lifes too short to worry about plants, such as alyssum, that produce masses of tiny flowers. But if you want to preen a few pots on the patio try using an old pair of scissors to make the job easier. Flower spikes. Many border flowers that bear their blooms on tall spikes, such as foxgloves and delphiniums, antirrhinum, hollyhock, lupin and penstemon can be encouraged to produce a second flush of smaller spikes later in the year if they are also deadheaded. When the last of the flowers start to fade on the spike, simply cut the whole spike back using a pair of secateurs to just above the highest side shoot lower down on the stem. With luck, many smaller side shoots will then develop and bloom toward the end of the summer. Repeat flowering. Many repeat-flowering plants, such as bush roses, will flower better and for much longer if regularly deadheaded throughout the flowering season. Roses should have each fading bloom cut from the cluster until the last one remains. As this fades, cut back the cluster to just above a leaf joint, about six inches below the flower cluster. With large-flowered, hybrid-tea roses, cut each faded bloom back to just above a leaf joint, about nine inches below the flower. By cutting back into thicker stems like this, stronger flowering shoots and a greater number of flowers will be produced. Feed roses with a rose fertilizer after the first crop of flowers have been deadheaded to encourage more blooms. Relay flowering. Some multi-stemmed plants which produce a lots of flowers on stems produced during the current season, can be deliberately pruned to encourage some stems to flower earlier or later than others, thereby spreading the flowering display over a longer period. Some clematis are a case in point, but this technique also can be tried with vigorous shrubs such as lavatera or the butterfly bush (Buddleja) which are normally cut back hard each spring. In this case, instead of cutting all the stems back hard, cut back about two-thirds, leaving the others to flower earlier than the hard-pruned stems. A few clump-forming perennials that produce a massed display of blooms, such as coreopsis, phlox and helenium, can have their flowering spread over a longer period by selective cutting back. All you need to do is cut back by half about one-third of the stems before they produce flowers. These will then throw several side shoots, each which will flower later in the summer, effectively extending the season of color. Other techniques to try Eternal youth. Some plants produce their best displays of flowers and foliage when young and vigorous. Herbaceous plants, such as achillea, produce their best displays if kept growing strongly. All you have to do is to lift the plants every couple of years and divided the clumps and they will reward you with bigger and better displays. Shrubs, such as red-stemmed dogwoods, produce brighter and more colorful bark on new growth. So, by pruning them back hard each spring, you can get the best displays possible. This technique also works with variegated dogwoods, which produce larger and more decorative foliage on new growth. Herbaceous plants to divide regularly Achillea, Aconitum, Aster, Geum, Heuchera and Solidago. Fresh foliage. Some flowering perennials, such as hardy geraniums, can start to look a bit tatty towards the middle of the summer as the effects of drought and pest and disease attack take their toll. You can improve the overall appearance of the plants and, if you are lucky, get another flush of blooms in late summer by cutting all the old foliage right back almost to ground level using a pair of shears. The new growth will look fresh and neat until the autumn. Water plants thoroughly after cutting back and give them a boost by applying a highpotash fertilizer such as rose or tomato food.

there was a recent meeting with county officials and Kaprelian to see if the county would consider purchasing the facility and establishing a Municipal Taxing Service Unit (MTSU); however, county officials said it was unlikely option that creating an MTSU would work, Frankenfield said. Afterward, Kaprelian approached the Board about the community purchasing the country club. There are some pluses, there are some negatives, Frankenfield said about buying the facility. But for some folks, it might be best. It could potentially be an additional $800 to $1,000 assessment per property owner. Were not doing anything if we dont have the communitys support. Kaprelian, who originally purchased the club in October 2010 for $2.4 million, said he and the POAs Board of Directors have been in talks about a potential deal. When he announced he was selling the facility, his asking price was $3 million. What hes willing to accept, he said, he wont announce publicly. They have a price that would be my bottom line price, he explained. They have that price. They have a letter out there that has their figures. Those figures werent run by me, but they have the absolute bottom line I would sell it for. Kaperlian said when he originally announced he was selling the course, he was hopeful residents would make a serious offer because it was a win-win for both parties. That would be my No. 1 goal, to sell it to the residents, Kaperlian said. The place would flourish with increased activity and for sales for homes. Those buying homes here wouldnt be just part of the community; theyd be a community in which the club goes with it. Everybody would get to be part of club at lower cost. We have about 20 percent, maybe 15 percent of the community, are members. The jump in home values would be good for everyone. It would just be a good thing if we can do it. The POA is receptive to the idea. If I get a fair price, I think it would be a good deal for all. Im working with them, trying to help them. Kaperlian is hopeful the residents are just as receptive to the idea as the POAs Board of Directors. From (the POAs) perspective, they think it would be a great idea, Kaperlian said. Theyve said they want to see, from the communitys perspective, if this makes sense. It would, in essence, be a community center, with an added fee for golf. I dont see the downside, but there are many people who might. Frankenfield said once the initial aspect of gauging community interest is done, the Board will either move forward or cancel talks with Kaperlian. Right now, my gut feeling is we wont have (the communitys support), Frankenfield said. news tip to the Riverland News. By the time all the emergency vehicles arrived, the flames were as high as the building was on top of the roof. My heart was racing wondering why no one else had called on this as yet. Theres a lot of flammables inside and out, scary. The family arrived shortly after 1:30 a.m. Monday to find Marion County Fire Rescue personnel were on scene. According to Jessica Greene, MCFR spokeswoman, the call came in at 1:18 a.m. The first unit arrived at 1:24 to find the building 60 percent involved with flames shooting through the roof. A total of 13 units responded to the fire, which took more than an hour to get under control, Greene explained, noting the State Fire Marshals Office is investigating the cause of the blaze. According to Zolf Lakahni, Dalziel stopped at Circle K, told the attendant there about the fire. The attendant knew the family as well as Dawson and knew the boyfriend lived nearby. She took a break from work and left to wake Dawson up so he could call the family. I was pretty much crying on the roof of my wifes car after we got here, Lakhani said Monday morning as the sun rose on the Eastern horizon. It was horrific. It was just horrible. The Lakhanis had owned the gas station for the past 17 years. Their daughter, Brittany, was 1 year old at the time they took ownership of the convenience store. This is our livelihood, thats come to an immediate stop, he said, looking at the charred remains, the smell of smoke still wafting through the air. Lakhani said they will rebuild. Dunnellon has been good to our family for a long time, he explained. Our daughters have gone to school here; Brittany is about ready to graduate. Shes going to be in the Queen of the Rainbow pageant this weekend. This is our home. Lakhani praised the efforts of the firefighters for securing the scene quickly and preventing further disaster by securing the pumps at the station. The fire people did a great job, he explained. When we got here, the roof was collapsing. Watching fire personnel do what they could to save the brick structure was too much to bear though. Its tough, its tough looking at it, said Lakhani, his already red eyes welling up with tears again. We had a lot of memories in that store, a lot of pictures in there of the kids. Despite the loss, Lakhani said he was glad of one thing. No one got hurt, he added. We should be thankful for that. Riverland News, Thursday, April 19, 2012 7 000B67D W O W W O W WOW!

Lecanto Highway, in Lecanto. The Career Fair is hosted by the college in partnership with Workforce Connection of Citrus, Levy and Marion counties. Dr. June Hall, student affairs director at the Citrus County campus, said the fair is open to graduating students as well as those in need of summer employment or looking for fulland part-time work while attending school. Members of the general public seeking employment are also encouraged to attend. CF is part of the Citrus-LevyMarion community and hosting this Career Fair with Workforce is a way we can reach out to the community, Hall said. We are hoping this will be only the first of many career and/or job fairs we can do together. Frank Calascione, Workforces business development manager in Citrus County, said attendees will have the opportunity to meet with area employers and explore career opportunities they may not have considered. Companies planning to participate include the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, Nature Coast Bank, Hospice of Citrus County, Lowes (Inverness), Sunflower Springs Assisted Living Facility/Superior Residences and Capital City Bank. While not all employers may be hiring, Calascione said the fair gives participants the chance to get face-to-face with recruiters and polish networking, presentation and interpersonal skills. For employers, this Career Fair is an efficient, effective way to determine who might be the best fit for their organization and job openings, whether those openings are available now or in the near future, Calascione said. Workforce Connection will have a staffed computer kiosk set up during the Career Fair to help attendees register with the Employ Florida Marketplace to apply for jobs. There is no charge to attend the Career Fair. Participants are asked to bring at least 10 printed copies of their resume and to dress professionally.

Springs residents was the immediate hike in their rates, but most notably the 25 percent surcharge officials justified adding because we can due to Florida Statue 180. The law stipulates municipalities providing utility services outside city can charge up to as much as 25 percent in additional fees. Two County Commissioners, Chairman Charlie Stone and Kathy Bryant, chided the City Council for its actions, suggesting they could have slowly integrated the rates to eventually match the current city rates. Mayor Fred Ward pointed out those utility users are not paying full rates and wont be until 2016 when the five-year implementation is complete. However, with the 25 percent surcharge, the 1,500 water users are paying 105 percent of the current city rates. Despite public pleas for the past several months to have the surcharge removed, officials have stood their ground. They defended the surcharge and tiered rates in a joint meeting with county officials saying they are necessary in a community that needs to understand conservation. Several residents have not disagreed that there are individuals who are highwater users but contend encouraging water conservation could have been done without significant increases in water rates. 60th year for the annual pageant.

T he Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and me were locked in a hopeless Mexican standoff. She was effectively arguing her side of the issue and I was, well, lets say I was not agreeing. I will not say who won, just that it wasnt me. She then looked at me, put both hands on her hips and said, Time will tell that Im right. I cannot wait. The problem is, time is never on my side. I simply do not know what it is about time, but it never does me any favors. Always, and I mean always, time proves my wife was right. I hate it. I thought it was supposed to be Father Time we are dealing with. If it is, he certainly does not have the male side of the issue in good grips. Why does time always prove my wife right? Perhaps Mother Nature has so bullied Father Time that he always takes up the side of my wife. The past week I have been thinking about this aspect of life; time. It seems that for the most part, we have put a lot of pressure upon time. For example, my wife keeps reminding me that time heals all wounds. If it was not for time I would have no wounds, I retorted. I got in trouble just this past week because I was running out of time. I had to get across town for an appointment and believe me; time was not on my side. It would have been nice if I could just sit down with Father Time and negotiate a little bit. Would it be that hard for him to press the pause button and suspend time in order for me to catch up? Why is it so important that time keeps marching on? Why cant it, at least on the weekends, just take a slow stroll down memory lane? Often I look at my watch to determine if I have enough time to do a certain project. Time has become an austere taskmaster, refusing to give up one second. Think with me a little bit. Wouldnt it be nice to have every week just one do over moment? How hard would that be? Father Time insists on perfection always. He does not allow for screw-ups, which is rather pressing for me. If I could just have one 15minute period during the week that I could do over, I might be able to catch up a little. He wants me to be on time every time. When it is 2 p.m., it is only 2 p.m. for one second, that is all. I believe there is an error here somewhere. If time is so valuable, why cant I enjoy 2 p.m. for say, 15 minutes? But no, by the time I acknowledge that it is 2 p.m. Father Time is tapping his finger on his watch and saying, Lets keep moving because time waits for no man. At the very center of my life, and everybody elses as well, is the infamous clock representing time. And what a harsh, demanding element this invention has become. Who invented that clock in the first place? Why was it not good enough just to look at the sun and guess what time of day it was? If it was dark, it was time to go to sleep. If the sun was up and it was light outside, it was time to get up. Oh, how I miss those good old days. But no, Father Time tricked somebody into inventing a device that keeps time. Or, so Father Time convinced the unsuspecting inventor. The joke is on us who wear watches. No watch I have ever owned has ever kept time. All it does is show me that time is passing and I am late for an appointment. Where is that inventor that can invent some mechanism or some technology that can actually keep time? I would be the first one to buy such a contraption. Why cant Bill Gates come out of retirement and do something useful for humanity and invent the technology that actually keeps time. I would settle for half-hour increments. I could live with that. For many years now, time has not been on my side and neither has it been involved in the healing of any of my many wounds. Then never, contrary to what my wife says, has time ever told me anything. It just keeps on ticking while giving me a licking. I am older, but certainly, I am not any wiser. And I blame Father Time. He has not given me enough time to learn everything that I need to know. Every day it seems I am always running out of time. And I cannot believe it is my fault. Time marches on and I need to make the best of it as best I can. The apostle Paul understood the urgency of this matter we call time. He writes in his epistle, For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2 KJV). The only time we really have is now. I never have a now to do over so I need to make time my friend and not my enemy.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P.O.

To get more easy, breezy tomato recipes, and to sign up for a free newsletter, visit www.floridatomatoes.org. Tomato and Sweet Corn BisqueYield: 4 servings 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1/2 onion, finely chopped 1 pound fresh Florida corn kernels 1 large garlic clove, minced 4 cups low-sodium broth (vegetable or chicken) Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper 2 tablespoons sour cream 2 medium Florida tomatoes, coarsely chopped 1 scallion, thinly sliced 1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro, plus more for garnish Melt butter in large, heavy pot.

Add broth and simmer until corn is tender, about 15 minutes. Lightly season with kosher salt and pepper to taste. Using slotted spoon, transfer 1 1/2 cups corn to blender, add sour cream and 1/2 cup cooking liquid and puree until smooth, for about 2 minutes. Return puree to soup. Add tomatoes, scallion and 1 tablespoon cilantro to soup and cook until heated through. Serve hot and garnish with cilantro and chopped tomato, if desired.

With a victory tonight, Dunnellon would qualify for the playoffs for the fifth straight year. DHS opens district tourney play tonight AMANDA BARNEY For the Riverland News Pound-for-pound Jonathan Padilla and A.J. Basso have been hitting more than the books this Spring. The duo has been hitting the weight room, and their efforts paid off. Both of them qualified for todays Class 1A State Weightlifting Championships in Kissimmee. Padilla won the 119-pound division at the district qualifier two weeks ago, besting North Marion's Darian DeGeorge by five pounds. Its the third straight year hes qualified for the state meet. Basso had to wait to see if he would earn one of nine open spots after finishing second at the district meet. He finished second to St. John Lutherans Chris Frazier in the 183-pound division. Fraiser totaled 595 to win the weight class over Basso by 50 pounds. He originally got started in weightlifting when assistant football coach Tommy Sutton told him it would help him in other sports and make him more physically fit. Padilla at first thought that it was going to be difficult, but when he began it came naturally and pretty easy than it looked. The thing Padilla likes most is challenging himself to lift more, to push himself, giving himself motivation along with his friends, coaches and importantly family. Weightlifting to Padilla is more like a hobby than anything. He doesnt have a process he follows for workouts, he just warms up in the afternoon workouts. No form, just lifting. His favorite style of lifting is the bench press. Much better form, and I can do it all day, Padilla said. His record for the season so far is four first-place finishes and one third-place place finish. Winning to Padilla means being stronger than his opponent, and lifting more feeling the strongest. I try not to get a big head and say Im a lot stronger and better when I win because they might be better at something else than me, Padilla said. Hes an extremely hard worker, said Padillas coach, Tommy Sutton. Hes easy to coach and fun to be around. JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsA.J. Basso, pictured here during his sophomore year, will compete today in the Class 1A State Weightlifting Championships in Kissimmee. He and fellow teammate, Jonathan Padilla, will make the trip. This is Padillas third straight year qualifying for the state tournament. Padilla, Basso qualify for todays state weightlifting meet MORGAN SHALNA For the Riverland News Jonathan Padilla A.J. Basso FWC officials to meet May 2 to 3 in Crystal River The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will meet May 2 to 3 at The Plantation Inn, Crystal River, to discuss several fish-and-wildlife conservation issues, including red snapper and roundscale spearfish management, anchoring and mooring, wild hog management and manatee zones. The May 2-3 dates reflect a change of schedule, but the location is the same. On the first day, following recognition of individual FWC employees for their marine fisheries conservation efforts, the focus shifts to the consent agenda, a report by FWC Executive Director Nick Wiley and staff updates on the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council and the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council. Items on the marine fisheries agenda include final approval of amendments that would set the 2012 Gulf of Mexico recreational red snapper season, and three of the consent agenda items: the management of roundscale spearfish and language updates to reef fish recreational bag limits and to the Spiny Lobster Trap Certificate Program. Roundscale spearfish harvest has been prohibited in state waters since 1999 because the fish rarely come into Florida waters. The consent Special to the Riverland News See FWC page 17

16 Riverland News, Thursday, April 19, 2012 With Dunnellons Boomtown Days rapidly approaching, what better way to round out the festivities than the 60th anniversary of the Queen of the Rainbow Pageant starting at 1 p.m. Sunday, April 22, in the First Real Estate parking lot. This year, five contestants will be competing for the $500 grand prize, along with many other gift certificates and awards. Three DHS seniors: Chelsea Dominey, Brittany Lakhani and Alora Thompson; a DHS sophomore, Ashley Nicki Paden; and one high school graduate, Tiffany Burch rounds out the diverse group of participants. Each contestant will be interviewed, asked a round of stage questions, compete in an evening gown portion and speak about their chosen platform. A platform is a community service project the contestant intends to complete if crowned Queen of the Rainbow. I hope the girls are able to look back at this experience and feel like they learned how important our community is, said Heidi Schwier, who is directing the pageant for the sixth consecutive year. Taking part in the pageant is just one way of being able to come together with citizens, of all ages, of Dunnellon and represent what they believe in. Chelsea DomineyDominey is a 17-year-old senior at Dunnellon High School. She was born in Colorado and to Jeff and Julie Dominey. She has two siblings, Jeremy and Montana. In her high school career, Dominey has been involved in golf, FFA, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and National Honor Society. She was on the high school varsity cheerleading team for three years. Dominey was crowned Homecoming Queen 2011 last fall. She follows in the footsteps of her mother and grandmother, who were also chosen as Dunnellon Homecoming Queens their senior years in high school. She was also on the Miss DHS Court for 2011. My aunt won the competition and my mom encouraged me to enter, Dominey said, explaining her reason for entering, adding as a senior she might as well do it; you only live once. Domineys platform is about taking a stand against texting and driving. She encourages anyone that has the urge to start texting while driving to stop the car and pull over to text. There are also cars that can text for you, Dominey added, admitted to previously having texting and driven in the past. I stopped when I started researching about texting and driving; 64 percent of crashes last year involving people between the ages of 16 and 20 were the result of the driver texting. See Azwell Vision Center is Domineys sponsor. Brittany LakhaniThe 17-year-old senior, is the daughter of Zolf and Bobbi Lakhani, and has a younger sister, Danielle. Lakhani attends Dunnellon High School and is dual-enrolled at the College of Central Florida. She has been involved in Cross Country and Track and Field. Lakhani is Senior Class president and National Honor Society vice president. She was also chosen to represent DHS at the Young Leaders Conference at the University of Florida. Lakhani began competing in pageants when she was young and has since been in six competitions in the past few years. Her platform for the competition is centered on taking a stand against bullying. I chose this platform because I have been bullied, said Lakhani, whose sponsor is Lakhani is sponsored by Avonelle Mackerell, Attorney at Law. Lakhani is strongly opinionated when it comes to bullying leading to suicide. If I was to speak with someone who was considering suicide I would tell them that they are beautiful in Gods eyes and that He has a purpose for them, she explained. These people who are bullying you are not worth taking for your life for. You are strong and you can go out and be who you want to be. Lakhani strives for all students, of all ages, to be aware of different types of bullying. It would be nice to also create an after school program a few times a week where students can come together and talk about their experiences together, Lakhani said. Alora Thompson Thompson is the last of the three seniors entered in the pageant. She is the Amber Lynne Stivers, 6, sponsor Duley Truss. Brianna Patterson, 6, sponsor Rainbow Jewelers LLC. Rionna Garino, 5, sponsor, Women of the Moose No. 1662. Caden Simpkins, 6, sponsor Nichols Lumber. Ella Hope Simpkins, 5, sponsor Marion Medical Center.

agenda item on roundscale spearfish will align how Florida manages roundscale spearfish with recent changes to federal management efforts. The proposed final rule would allow harvest of roundscale spearfish, adding it to the marlin and sailfish one-fish bag and possession limit. Also on the consent agenda are two draft rule items that propose updating rule language. These updates are part of a recent effort to clarify marine fisheries rules and make them easier to understand. The first change will update the multi-day charter trip and off-water possession limits for reef fish. The Spiny Lobster Trap Certificate Program consent agenda item will make FWC rule match Florida Statute by shortening the length of time trap certificate fees can go unpaid before the certificate reverts back to the FWC and can no longer be reissued. Hunting issues are also on the consent agenda. Staff will request approval of rules to expand gray squirrel season on private lands and, in concert with this change, to retain current gray squirrel seasons on wildlife management areas and environmental areas. Next, the agenda turns to an anchoring and mooring pilot program ordinance for St. Petersburg. The city ordinance applies to anchoring or mooring nonlive-aboard vessels outside the marked boundaries of public mooring fields. Approval by the Commission is required before the ordinance can be enforced. Following that, staff will report on wild hog management in Florida and how it provides for hunting opportunities and other tools to control feral hogs. Before recessing the May 2 portion of the twoday meeting, the public will be invited to comment on items not on the agenda. The second day also starts with recognition of conservation excellence and a presentation of a Youth Hunting Program Landowner of the Year award. Next on the agenda is a proposed rule to establish new state zones that limit allowable motorboat speeds in portions of Flagler County from May 1 to Sept. 7, remove existing zones in Flagler County that are a part of the Volusia County rule, and provide a reference to the location of maps illustrating the zones. An update on the Central Everglades Restoration Project is next, followed by other staff reports and public comment on items not on the agenda. Anyone requiring special accommodations to participate in the meeting should advise the FWC at least five calendar days prior to the May 2 meeting by contacting the FWC's Office of Human Resources at 850-488-6411. If you are hearingor speech-impaired, contact the FWC using the Florida Relay Service at 800-9558771 (TDD) or 800-955-8770 (voice).

The 18year-old is involved in a myriad of after -school activities. She plays softball year-round, has been on the DHS swimming team for three consecutive years and played volleyball for two years. Thompson was in FFA for two years and was involved in the 4H Club this year, where she won Grand Reserve at the Southeastern Youth Fair for the steer she raised. Thompson will be competing in the pageant with her cousin, Chelsea Dominey. Its actually brought us closer than we have ever been before, Thompson said. Thompson will speak about beautifying the community. I choose this because the beauty of Dunnellon has always been important to me, she said. I want to do everything I can to help it stay beautiful and clean. Thompson plans to organize a monthly clean up for Dunnellon if she is crowned Queen of the Rainbow. She is sponsored by Cuttin Loose Salon. Ashley Nicki Paden The name may look familiar to last years pageant-goers. After placing second runner-up, the 16-yearold sophomore is giving it another go. I had a lot of fun last year and wanted to do it again, Paden said. Originally from San Antonio, Texas, Paden has two older siblings, Christine and Kevin. While in high school, she has been involved in Student Government where she is Sophomore Class president, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Future Business Leaders of America and Literacy Club. After two years of high school, Paden has also been a member of the varsity cheerleading team and girls soccer team. Padens platform for the competition is skin cancer awareness. She believes the disease is not common and wants to spread knowledge about it even though it does not occur as often as other forms of cancer, such as breast cancer. Padens aunt was affected and died from the disease last year. It influenced my decision to choose skin cancer awareness as my platform this year because as I thought about it, I was like, What better way to inform people about it than promoting it in the pageant? she said. Paden wants to team up with Dunnellon High School and Rainbow Springs State Park to distribute brochures about skin cancer. I want the sophomore class at DHS to sell ribbons for skin cancer and melanoma awareness, Paden explained, noting the money raised would go toward creating the information packets to be distributed at the state park and high school. Paden is sponsored in the competition by Repeat Boutique. Tiffany Burch Burch is the only one of the five contestants that has graduated high school. She finished high school in 2010 at Lecanto High School. While in school, Burch was Key Club secretary, a member of the National Honor Society and in the Multicultural Club. She was in the marching and concert bands at Lecanto and played the trumpet. Burch attends Santa Fe Community College, but said the commute is not bad because she lives in Citrus Springs. After graduating, Burch, 20, often spends her free time volunteering at the Annie Johnson Thrift Store in Dunnellon. For her pageant platform, Burch will discuss female empowerment. Fero and Sons is sponsoring Burch for the competition. This years winner will be crowned by Danielle Prinz, who was crowned Queen a year ago.

Steve Doran brought his son, Jeff, and grandson, Gabe, as well as a family friend to watch the pilots in action. He said when they heard about the team practicing, they scrapped other plans and headed for the airport. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see something like this, Doran said. We immediately dropped what we were doing and came out. This is a real treat, a real treat. John Helms, airport manager, said the feedback has been positive. So far weve had great feedback, people were really excited about seeing the team practicing, Helms said. The reaction has been theyd like to see more of the aerobatics, more airshows in general. He said team members were pleased with the facility, calling it perfect. They said the airport was great, that it made for a wonderful environment, Helms said. And they said seeing the support of the community and them taking part in the practice sessions. They were very pleased with everything. The team really seemed thrilled with everything, how friendly everyone was and how accommodating everyone was to them.

18 Riverland News, Thursday, April 19, 2012 FAMILY FEATURES C hef Mary Ann Esposito, host of the PBS television show Ciao Italia, knows all about the joys and benefits of cooking with olive oil. Olive oil is 100 percent natural, contains no cholesterol, trans fats, sodium or sugar. It adds a delicious splash of flavor to any recipe. As a rule of thumb, she says, substitute an equal amount of olive oil for other cooking oils. Here are some more of her tips for eating deliciously with Filippo Berio Olive Oil: Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Has a rich, full flavor, fragrant aroma, low acidity and deep greenish-gold color. Its ideal for salad dressings, marinades, sauces, roasting potatoes and dipping bread. Drizzle it over air-popped popcorn for a healthiersnack,anduseitinChefMaryAnnsrecipeforMarinatedCarrot,Caper and Sweet Red Pepper Salad. Olive Oil: Has a rich golden color; perfectly balanced with a mild flavor. Its ideal as a base for sauces and for sauting meat, poultry, fish or vegetables. Try it in Chef Mary Anns recipe for Eggplant Rolls. Extra Light Olive Oil: Has a subtle taste and light bouquet, which allows natural flavors of food to come through. It has a high smoke point, which makes it perfect for frying, stir-frying and baking. For a great break fast, use it to scramble eggs. For dinner, try it in Chef Mary Anns recipe for Devilish Chicken. Visit www.filippoberio.com and www.ciaoitalia.com for more healthy, delizioso recipes from Chef Mary Ann. Marinated Carrot, Caper and Sweet Red Pepper SaladServes 4 Marinade 1/3 cup Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 1/4 teaspoons salt Freshly ground black pepper 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 2 tablespoons salt-packed capers, well rinsed Salad 4 large carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch-long matchstick pieces 1 tablespoon salt 2 large sweet red bell peppers cut into thin, 2-inch-long strips 1 cup thinly sliced fennel bulb 1/4 cup minced flat leaf parsley 2 tablespoons minced mint Combine all marinade ingredients in a 12 x 9-inch rectangular glass or ceramic dish. Mix well. Set aside. Fill a 12to 14-inch saut pan three-quarters full with water. Add carrots and salt. Bring to a boil and cook until a knife tip easily pierces carrots. Drain in colander and transfer to dish with marinade. Toss well. Add peppers and fennel and toss again. Let stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour, tossing occasionally to meld the flavors. Just before serving, toss parsley and mint into salad. Serve at room temperature. Eggplant RollsServes 8 1 large eggplant (7 to 8 inches long), stem removed, cut into 8 1/4-inch-thick lengthwise slices 2 tablespoons Filippo Berio Olive Oil 2/3 cup minced fresh oregano or mint 1 teaspoon fine sea salt 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper 1/2 cup pine nuts 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce 1 cup toasted bread crumbs, made from stale bread Chefs Secret: Purchase eggplants that are very shiny, have intact stem tops, show no bruising or soft spots and feel heavy. Preheat oven to 350F, or fire up the grill. Brush eggplant slices on both sides with olive oil and place in single layers on slightly oiled rimmed baking sheets. Bake for about 10 minutes, or just until soft. Set aside to cool. Alternatively, grill eggplant slices on both sides until they soften and grill marks appear. Mix oregano (or mint), salt, pepper and pine nuts together in a bowl. Spread a couple of tablespoons of the mixture along length of each eggplant slice, and then roll slices into bundles. Spread 1/2 cup tomato sauce in the base of a 12 x 9-inch casserole dish. Place eggplant bundles in rows in the dish and spread remaining sauce evenly over top. Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover, and bake 5 minutes longer. Serve hot and sprinkle bread crumbs on top. Chef Mary Ann Esposito is an accom plished cookbook author and the creator and host of Ciao Italia, the longest-running cooking series on television.Devilish Chicken Serves 4 1 3 1/2 to 4-pound free-range, organic chicken, butterflied 1/4 cup Filippo Berio Extra Light Olive Oil Fine sea salt Freshly ground black pepper Cayenne pepper or dried hot red pepper flakes 1 cup dry white wine Lemon wedges To butterfly chicken, place it on a plastic cutting board, breast side down. With kitchen shears or a boning knife, cut along both sides of backbone and remove and discard the bone or save for stock. Turn chicken over skin side up and flatten it by pressing down with hands or a meat pounder. Coat chicken completely with olive oil, then season with salt, pepper and cayenne to taste. Transfer chicken to a dish, cover, and marinate for several hours. This step can be done the day before. Preheat grill. When coals are white or a gas grill temperature reaches 500F, place chicken on grill, breast side down. Cook, turning frequently, and keeping the fire under control so as not to burn the chicken. About 10 minutes into grilling, begin basting chicken with wine. Continue basting every 10 minutes. The chicken is cooked when a meat thermometer inserted into the thigh bone registers between 175F and 180F. Transfer chicken to a cutting board, and cut into serving pieces. Serve hot with lemon wedges and a squirt of lemon juice. Use your fingers, not a fork, to eat.

SERVINGDUNNELLONANDRAINBOWSPRINGS Thursday, April 19, 2012 Vol 30 No. 26 75 cents RS POA gauging residents interest in course Direction sought from membersIn August 2011, Mark Kaprelian announced he was selling Rainbow Springs Golf and Country Club. Now, he might have an interested party in purchasing the course the Rainbow Springs Property Owners Association. But before any deal can be completed, residents of the POA will have to take a vote about the issue. However, Bob Frankenfield, president of the POA, said the first step the Board of Directors will take is to gauge interest of the residents through a preliminary vote before officials spend any money. If the preliminary indication is a no, the POA Board will cease further action, but if the sentiment from residents is that its an option worth exploring, theyll proceed with a number of steps, including a complete financial analysis. This is not a Board decision, this is a community decision, he said, noting a letter is to be sent to residents this week to gauge their interest. But were not spending a dime of the communitys money until they tell us to move forward with a simple yes or no. Frankenfield noted Fire levels gas station The Lakhanis lost a piece of family history Sunday night. The longtime Dunnellon business owners were jolted from their bed early Monday morning when their daughter Brittanys longtime boyfriend, Ronnie Dawson, called them to tell them the news: their business, the Sunoco Gas Station on U.S. 41, was engulfed in flames. Michelle Dalziel, a motorist, was driving past the station on her way home, saw the flames and immediately called 911 to report the fire. I noticed smoke and light by the Sunoco Station blowing over the highway.

City leaders, representatives from Burton & Associates as well as Lewis Bryant from Kimley-Horn & Associates will make presentations. City Manager Lisa Aligere on Tuesday said she is still awaiting confirmation from officials with the Southwest Florida Water Management District (Swiftmud) if they will be present. Burton & Associates will address concerns about the citys tiered water rate structure while Bryant will give a status update about the condition of the utility system and planned capital improvements. The meeting will be from 9:30 a.m. to noon Wednesday, April 25, at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church on U.S. 41, slightly south of the State Road 40 intersection. Harriet Daniels, the communications coordinator for Greenlight Communications, did confirm there will be a Question and answer period in which officials will take questions from utility customers.

Suddenly, the pilot quickly pulled back on the throttle and she was headed back toward the heavens. By the time Melissa Pemberton finished her routine, the applause and roar from the crowd of 60 to 80 people gathered Saturday at the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport made almost as much noise as the single-engine craft that took to the skies. For three days during this past weekend, members of the U.S. National Aerobatic Team patrolled the skies above the decades-old facility, drawing plenty of spectators during the teams practice sessions at the airport. Bob Steele, a Citrus Hills resident, said once he heard about the U.S. National Aerobatic Team practicing, he dropped what he was doing, grabbed a chair and his binoculars and made the trek to the airport to catch Saturdays practice session. Theyre very good, excellent, Steele said. Its not very often you get a chance to see something like this, its pretty special. I just love it. Its a great opportunity to see them practice. You can see everything. Steel, a pilot himself, said hes not on the level of those who flew throughout the day. Its impressive, very impressive, he said.

WE MATCH COMPETITOR PRICES On RX Drugs Woman charged with aggravted battery A 31-year-old Ocala woman was charged Sunday with aggravated battery causing bodily harm after striking a woman repeatedly and nearly biting a finger off in an April 9 altercation, an arrest report stated. According to the report, Moriah T. Donson was visiting Amy Smith at her residence in the 20900 block of W. Pennsylvania Ave. on Monday, April 9, to socialize with Smith. Donson arrived at the location intoxicated and angry, needing a place to stay while she separated from her boyfriend. The report stated Smith agreed to let Donson stay at her house for a short period of time. Approximately two hours later, the report stated, after Donson had arrived at Smith's house, Smith informed her that her husband, Randy, would be arriving and that Donson needed to leave. Donson became angry and began yelling at Smith, telling her she was not going to leave because it was Smith's husband who wanted her to leave, not her. According to the report, Smith told authorities Donson was highly intoxicated and continued to become angry and upset with her due to the inability of her to remain at the house. Smith advised that Donson then began to strike her in the face with a closed fist. The report stated Donson held Smith against the wall using Smith's hair, repeatedly striking her in the face with a closed fist; therefore, Smith used an open hand to push Donsons face away from her. Upon doing so, the report stated, Donson bit Smith's hand and finger causing great bodily harm and disfigurement. Smith informed authorities Donson continued to strike her against her will. According to the report, due to size differential Smith was unable to remove herself from Donsons grasp and flee. Smith told authorities while continued to strike her repeatedly, she began reaching for an object to strike Donson with because her actions were not strong enough to stop Donson. The report stated Smith reached behind her and removed a glass drinking cup from a table and struck Donson in the face at which time Donson stopped her assault on Smith, allowing her to escape and call authorities after locking herself in her home. Once inside the residence, Smith told authorities, Donson stood up and began striking the windows in the house and used a broom handle in an attempt to get through the front door. Donson was flown to Shands Hospital in Gainesville for treatment of her head wound. Once authorities were able to speak with her, she was unable to provide details regarding the incident and provided numerous inconsistencies when doing so. She was charged upon her release from the hospital. According to jail records, Donson bonded out Sunday. Her bond was $5,000.

River views Misdeeds of the Rainbow Springs Property Owners AssociationThe Rainbow Springs POA website states: This site has been established to improve communications within our community, increase member participation in the affairs of our community, and to keep you, the member, aware of activities and events that could affect you. To me the BOD and manager have failed on all three of these areas. Improve communications within our community Residents were not properly informed of the Monday, April 2, Emergency BOD meeting. This announcement was not posted on the website. It was posted on The Beach and Country Club bulletin boards only the day before the meeting. You have been asked previously to post information on the website. To increase member participation in the affairs of our community I, as well as other residents, have asked volunteered/asked to serve on various committees only to never be chosen. To keep you, the member, aware of activities and events that could affect you In three months time you have failed to do this twice: First, there was no information issued from the BOD or manager prior to the Dec. 21, 2011, city of Dunnellon workshop to discuss purchasing Rainbow Springs Utilities and the Dec. 28, 2011, city of Dunnellon hearing to vote on this purchase; and secondly, the lack of information posted on the website regarding the aforementioned April 2 BOD meeting. Some questions: Who decided to pursue an MSTU in order to purchase the RS Country Club? When was this decision made? Have you already given Myra Tedder $500 (or whatever the current rate is) to begin the MSTU process? Are you going to follow the correct procedure for voting to establish an MSTU: A residents meeting to decide whether the residents want to pursue an MSTU, and then, voting to establish an MSTU and no fooling around with the petitions. Why, when the BOD is supposedly against the city of Dunnellons purchase of Rainbow Springs Utilities, would you even think about burdening the residents with an additional financial burden? Do you realize what is involved in owning/managing a successful country club golf course, pro shop, swimming pool, tennis courts, restaurants, etc. Who would do this? The big issue is the liability this would place on all residents. Numerous residents did not purchase homes here because of the country club, so why would they want to purchase it when they would never use any of its facilities? Maybe there is an upside to the residents owning the country club. If The buzz is all for naught Make sense of this It drives me crazy when things dont make sense, like people going to Outback Steakhouse and ordering chicken for instance or going to Steak and Shake and getting the grilled cheese. Odd or unusual behavior? I think they used to call it, things that make you go hmmm If Im watching a show on TV, it has to make sense or Ill turn it off. Soap operas are notorious for that. I like all stories to have a beginning, middle and an end and I prefer happy endings. I get so frustrated when a movie ends and you have no idea what just happened. Like at the very end of Cast Away when Tom Hanks turns the car around. Where did he go? Did he go back to get Helen Hunt or did he go back to find that neighbor lady? I guess well never know. Remember in Titanic when Rose tells Jack that shell never let go and then she pushes him under the water? That just never made sense to me. I talked about that one for weeks, and can anybody tell me what Eyes Wide Shut was all about? Good thing I have my 6-year-old grandson around to explain Star Wars to me, otherwise Id be lost. So maybe its not the movies that dont make sense, maybe its just the way my brain works or doesnt work. Are you beginning to see a pattern here? When I watch a movie, I just want to be entertained. I dont want to figure out the whole plot, too. Even in real life, I want things to make sense. For instance, if somebody doesnt like people, why are they working in customer service? And when you call customer service, have you noticed how the volume is so low and it sounds like theyre a million miles away? I know youve laughed about that one. Does it make sense that healthy food costs way more than unhealthy? Or that if you take the fat and sugar out of food, it costs $2 more? How confusing that one health guru will tell you to avoid carbs, while another one will tell you to avoid dairy. If you bought all the supplements that Dr. Oz suggests you need, you would have no money left over for the food. Believe me Ive tried it. How can you love tomatoes, but not ketchup? How can you be Italian and not like garlic? Or French and not like to kiss? Its kind of like when your husband tells you not to treat him like youre his mother, but then he wants you to find his socks and remind him to put the toilet seat down. Sorry, honey, I had to throw that one in. I guess we all have our own personal quirks, and thats what makes the world an interesting place to live. I wouldnt expect anybody to understand my personal preference for stale Cheetos or the way I like to mix my meat, potatoes and vegetables all together. It seems like we are all odd in our own way.

In addition, the State Board of Education (SBE) raised FCAT cut scores for each passing level (Level 1 Level 5) in December 2011 to be applied in spring 2012 thereby further raising the achievement bar. While everyone agrees that increased accountability and high academic standards are certainly in the best interest of our students; the reality of these changes in terms of real life consequences for students needs to be recognized and understood. The combination of a much more rigorous FCAT test, coupled with raising the threshold for receiving a passing score will result in a dip in student scores. There is great concern that many Florida students will not be successful on FCAT 2.0. For example, students that have consistently scored Level 3 (passing rate) their entire school career could easily score below the passing level with the new standards. The most dramatic impact will likely be in grades 3, 4, and 10. What does all this mean in terms of student performance on FCAT 2.0? There will be an increase in the number of students failing to pass FCAT 2.0 Subsequently, there will be an increase in the number of students having to take remediation classes for the Scoring for FCAT changes this spring For a better portion of the most recent weekend, we spent it camped out at the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport, chatting up members of the U.S. National Aerobatic squad. Theyre a wonderful group of men and women, very down to earth, unless they are several hundred feet or several thousand feet in the air. They are the best our nation has to offer in their sport. In this country, that says a lot. Approaching the airport from the east and west various days along County Road 484, we were under the distinct impression we thought wed be bombarded by a noise so hideous wed beg for earplugs. Oddly enough, we heard very little. It wasnt until we reached the airport that we heard anything. Even then, it didnt sound as if a squadron of bomber pilots was making a run. We are not saying there wasnt a touch of noise, but it was minimal at best; and what would one expect at an airport besides the sound of airplanes flying overheard? Funny, some folks in the area make it sound like a war zone when aerobatic pilots are flying our friendly skies. And theyve done their best to make noise of their own regarding the aerobatic box in place at the airport. Perhaps the best question is what exactly did you expect when you purchased your homes next to an airport? Had you bought your homes next to a golf course, would you have been shocked to see golfers zipping past your home? Perhaps stunned if a golf ball wound up in your yard? The many folks who attended Saturdays meet-and-greet with the pilots were given a chance to ask questions about aerobatics and learn about safety protocols necessary for the sport. Spectators given the opportunity to peek inside of the planes were mesmerized. Their comments and reactions about the training might have varied, but the one consistent was this: How many times in your life can you say you witnessed something as spectacular as this? We couldnt agree more. And while we are sure it might be easier said than done to host a fullscale regional event at the airport, we would certainly encourage county officials to weigh the pros and cons of creating an annual event. We certainly see economic benefits that would arise from it, and it would be great publicity for promoting businesses to consider relocating their services to a facility willing to offer events that showcase the aviation industry. Wed encourage those naysayers to realize the benefits of such a facility and the benefits of the economic impacts it could have for this area. Jane Ashman Starting this spring, Floridas Department of Education is changing the way it scores the FCAT, the annual standardized test many students take. The standards are going up, which means earning higher scores will be more difficult. As well, the formula for school grades will change. These changes affect all public schools, including Dunnellon-area schools. Consequently, student scores and school grades will likely drop, but not because schools are getting worse as some folks contend. Higher grading scales mean more challenges ahead. In light of these changes, I want to share this information with you from the Department of Education. Audrey Beem See FCAT page 5 See JERSEY GIRL page 5 See LETTERS page 5

we own it, then we could play golf, tennis, etc., free of charge. In fact, since the POA has a Country Club charge account and I belong to POA, can I charge my golf, food and beverage purchases on this account? Our BOD President, Bob Frankfield, has preached how the road repaving and entrance way signs would improve our property values. What do you think the city of Dunnellons purchase of RS Utilities has done to our property values, let along what the tax burden of owning the country club would do? Mr. Frankenfield, do you, any other BOD member or the POA manager, want to purchase my home? The BOD got the residents into the mess of the city of Dunnellon buying our utility system, because you would not listen to or believe us when some of us told you it was going to happen and you denied it when you knew it was true. This time please listen to the residents and do not even think about trying to establish an MSTU to purchase the country club.Joan K. Duggins Rainbow Springs Buy Rainbow Springs Golf Course? Vote noRainbow Springs Golf & Country Club wants to sell as soon as possible. Our Property Owners Association board has decided to facilitate the sale by arranging for us, the residents, to buy it. All property owners will receive a mailing soon, which asks you to vote on the idea without any mention of cost or how the facility would be operated. If the POA Board counts a majority of yes votes, they plan to proceed and spend at least $10,000 of POA money doing an inventory and value estimate on the club. We dont even know what will constitute a majority. Then, there would be another vote to authorize the purchase, or, hopefully, not. How many residents want to buy into a shaky deal? The asking price is $2.5 million! The bottom line is that we could be out $12,000 to $15,000 with no good derived from the spending of our money. When this was discussed at the last POA Board meeting, I suggested to President (Bob) Frankenfield that the $1,200 cost of this first mailing should be paid by the club, not the residents. He blew off the idea, preferring to spend our money first. Please give him a call if you would rather have RSG&CC pick up the tab for their solicitation. In any case, when you receive your letter from Mr. Frankenfield, please vote no and kill this bad idea.Dan Techentin Rainbow SpringsGarden Club thanks two other businessesThe Dunnellon Garden Club apologizes to these two generous contributors to our annual fashion show: Rainbow Springs Golf and Country Club and Sheer Envy Beauty Salon.

He rushed in and out so quickly, I was unable to ask where he was from and thank him. Perhaps he would be interested to know how we handled the evening gowns left with us. Seven appeared to be, in our judgement, suitable for the Annie Johnson Centers drive for prom dresses for young women in the area and they were passed along to them. The others were kept to be offered very reasonably for ladies shopping for cruise wear and that special evening out. We truly appreciate this gentlemans donation to our shop and hope he reads this.

School grades will fall significantly. Increased costs to school districts due to an increase in the number of remediation classes. Potential elimination of elective courses in order to accommodate an increase in remediation courses. What is truly important to remember is that lower FCAT test scores do not necessarily indicate that a student learned less this year than in prior years. It does indicate the student has work to do to master the new curriculum well enough to successfully progress to the new higher levels of accountability as required by the state. As teachers and students spend more time working with the new and higher expectations placed upon them, it is expected that test scores will rebound, student knowledge will increase, and ultimately the student will be better prepared for life after high school, either in college or the workplace. To that end, all of us students, parents, teachers, principals, administrators, superintendents and our communities must work together to continue to ensure the academic success of our students, which in turn directly correlates to the economic vitality of our communities.Jane Ashman is the principal at Dunnellon Middle School.

Many flowering plants can be encouraged to produce better and longer-lasting displays with the minimum of effort. A plant produces flowers in order to reproduce and ensure the survival of the species. Once a plant has flowered and fertilization has taken place, it tends to put its energy into producing seed at the expense of more flowers. With some popular plants, such as zinnias and sweet peas, flowering can stop altogether. You can prevent this happening by simply removing the flowers as they start to fade, thereby, preventing the formation of seedpods. This technique is known as deadheading. By removing blooms as they fade, deadheading also improves the current display. Some flowering plants are worth deadheading to prevent them from self-seeding all over the place and causing a weed problem. All flowering plants respond to an annual application of high-potash fertilizer, such as a tomato feed or a dressing of sulphate of potash, which will also promote flower production. How you go about deadheading will depend on both the type of flowers and your attitude to gardening. Ive seen some particularly tidy gardeners removing blooms fastidiously when the flowers are barely over, while others wait until the blooms have turned brown. For me, the ideal time is somewhere in-between. I like to get into the habit of deadheading as I walk around the garden. This means flowering plants get the once-over at least once a week from early summer to early autumn. With any luck! How to deadhead How you remove the flowers from a plant should depend on the type of growth it produces. Long flower stalks. Plants that produce one flower head at the end of a stalk, such as pelargoniums, should have the fading flower removed along with the stalk snapping it off cleanly from the stem. Bulbs, such as daffodils and tulips, are the exception. These should have the flower cut off leaving the stalk intact. Repeatflowering plants (such as roses) and those that produce flower spikes (such as delphiniums and foxgloves) are also treated differently see below. Short flower stalks. Plants that produce flowers on short stalks, such as fuchsias, should have the fading bloom removed by pinching off the stalk behind each fading flower between finger and thumb. Masses of flowers. Lifes too short to worry about plants, such as alyssum, that produce masses of tiny flowers. But if you want to preen a few pots on the patio try using an old pair of scissors to make the job easier. Flower spikes. Many border flowers that bear their blooms on tall spikes, such as foxgloves and delphiniums, antirrhinum, hollyhock, lupin and penstemon can be encouraged to produce a second flush of smaller spikes later in the year if they are also deadheaded. When the last of the flowers start to fade on the spike, simply cut the whole spike back using a pair of secateurs to just above the highest side shoot lower down on the stem. With luck, many smaller side shoots will then develop and bloom toward the end of the summer. Repeat flowering. Many repeat-flowering plants, such as bush roses, will flower better and for much longer if regularly deadheaded throughout the flowering season. Roses should have each fading bloom cut from the cluster until the last one remains. As this fades, cut back the cluster to just above a leaf joint, about six inches below the flower cluster. With large-flowered, hybrid-tea roses, cut each faded bloom back to just above a leaf joint, about nine inches below the flower. By cutting back into thicker stems like this, stronger flowering shoots and a greater number of flowers will be produced. Feed roses with a rose fertilizer after the first crop of flowers have been deadheaded to encourage more blooms. Relay flowering. Some multi-stemmed plants which produce a lots of flowers on stems produced during the current season, can be deliberately pruned to encourage some stems to flower earlier or later than others, thereby spreading the flowering display over a longer period. Some clematis are a case in point, but this technique also can be tried with vigorous shrubs such as lavatera or the butterfly bush (Buddleja) which are normally cut back hard each spring. In this case, instead of cutting all the stems back hard, cut back about two-thirds, leaving the others to flower earlier than the hard-pruned stems. A few clump-forming perennials that produce a massed display of blooms, such as coreopsis, phlox and helenium, can have their flowering spread over a longer period by selective cutting back. All you need to do is cut back by half about one-third of the stems before they produce flowers. These will then throw several side shoots, each which will flower later in the summer, effectively extending the season of color. Other techniques to try Eternal youth. Some plants produce their best displays of flowers and foliage when young and vigorous. Herbaceous plants, such as achillea, produce their best displays if kept growing strongly. All you have to do is to lift the plants every couple of years and divided the clumps and they will reward you with bigger and better displays. Shrubs, such as red-stemmed dogwoods, produce brighter and more colorful bark on new growth. So, by pruning them back hard each spring, you can get the best displays possible. This technique also works with variegated dogwoods, which produce larger and more decorative foliage on new growth. Herbaceous plants to divide regularly Achillea, Aconitum, Aster, Geum, Heuchera and Solidago. Fresh foliage. Some flowering perennials, such as hardy geraniums, can start to look a bit tatty towards the middle of the summer as the effects of drought and pest and disease attack take their toll. You can improve the overall appearance of the plants and, if you are lucky, get another flush of blooms in late summer by cutting all the old foliage right back almost to ground level using a pair of shears. The new growth will look fresh and neat until the autumn. Water plants thoroughly after cutting back and give them a boost by applying a highpotash fertilizer such as rose or tomato food.Tracy Jenner, the Riverland Gardener, can be reached at tracyjenner@aol.com. 6 Riverland News, Thursday, April 19, 2012 000B541 Dunnellon Christian Academy S ATURDAY S ATURDAY A PRIL 21, 2012 A PRIL 21, 2012 Silent Silent Auction, Auction, BBQ BBQ Lunch Lunch & Car & Car Wash Wash First Baptist First Baptist Church of Church of Dunnellon Dunnellon 20831 Powell Road 20831 Powell Road and Highway 40 and Highway 40 352-489-7716 352-489-7716 BBQ LUNCH 11:00 am 2:00 pm Pulled Pork, Cole Slaw, Baked Beans, Brownie, Tea or Water $7.00 Tickets available in advance from School Office 352-489-7716 SILENT AUCTION 1:00 pm Bidding closed immediately at 4:00 pm AUCTION ITEMS INCLUDE: Walt Disney One-Day Park Hopper Passes x 4 Sea World Single-Day Tickets x 4 Time Share Getaway Condo in Gatlinburg Gift Certificates from local businesses Handmade Quilted Items...

there was a recent meeting with county officials and Kaprelian to see if the county would consider purchasing the facility and establishing a Municipal Taxing Service Unit (MTSU); however, county officials said it was unlikely option that creating an MTSU would work, Frankenfield said. Afterward, Kaprelian approached the Board about the community purchasing the country club. There are some pluses, there are some negatives, Frankenfield said about buying the facility. But for some folks, it might be best. It could potentially be an additional $800 to $1,000 assessment per property owner. Were not doing anything if we dont have the communitys support. Kaprelian, who originally purchased the club in October 2010 for $2.4 million, said he and the POAs Board of Directors have been in talks about a potential deal. When he announced he was selling the facility, his asking price was $3 million. What hes willing to accept, he said, he wont announce publicly. They have a price that would be my bottom line price, he explained. They have that price. They have a letter out there that has their figures. Those figures werent run by me, but they have the absolute bottom line I would sell it for. Kaperlian said when he originally announced he was selling the course, he was hopeful residents would make a serious offer because it was a win-win for both parties. That would be my No. 1 goal, to sell it to the residents, Kaperlian said. The place would flourish with increased activity and for sales for homes. Those buying homes here wouldnt be just part of the community; theyd be a community in which the club goes with it. Everybody would get to be part of club at lower cost. We have about 20 percent, maybe 15 percent of the community, are members. The jump in home values would be good for everyone. It would just be a good thing if we can do it. The POA is receptive to the idea. If I get a fair price, I think it would be a good deal for all. Im working with them, trying to help them. Kaperlian is hopeful the residents are just as receptive to the idea as the POAs Board of Directors. From (the POAs) perspective, they think it would be a great idea, Kaperlian said. Theyve said they want to see, from the communitys perspective, if this makes sense. It would, in essence, be a community center, with an added fee for golf. I dont see the downside, but there are many people who might. Frankenfield said once the initial aspect of gauging community interest is done, the Board will either move forward or cancel talks with Kaperlian. Right now, my gut feeling is we wont have (the communitys support), Frankenfield said. news tip to the Riverland News. By the time all the emergency vehicles arrived, the flames were as high as the building was on top of the roof. My heart was racing wondering why no one else had called on this as yet. Theres a lot of flammables inside and out, scary. The family arrived shortly after 1:30 a.m. Monday to find Marion County Fire Rescue personnel were on scene. According to Jessica Greene, MCFR spokeswoman, the call came in at 1:18 a.m. The first unit arrived at 1:24 to find the building 60 percent involved with flames shooting through the roof. A total of 13 units responded to the fire, which took more than an hour to get under control, Greene explained, noting the State Fire Marshals Office is investigating the cause of the blaze. According to Zolf Lakahni, Dalziel stopped at Circle K, told the attendant there about the fire. The attendant knew the family as well as Dawson and knew the boyfriend lived nearby. She took a break from work and left to wake Dawson up so he could call the family. I was pretty much crying on the roof of my wifes car after we got here, Lakhani said Monday morning as the sun rose on the Eastern horizon. It was horrific. It was just horrible. The Lakhanis had owned the gas station for the past 17 years. Their daughter, Brittany, was 1 year old at the time they took ownership of the convenience store. This is our livelihood, thats come to an immediate stop, he said, looking at the charred remains, the smell of smoke still wafting through the air. Lakhani said they will rebuild. Dunnellon has been good to our family for a long time, he explained. Our daughters have gone to school here; Brittany is about ready to graduate. Shes going to be in the Queen of the Rainbow pageant this weekend. This is our home. Lakhani praised the efforts of the firefighters for securing the scene quickly and preventing further disaster by securing the pumps at the station. The fire people did a great job, he explained. When we got here, the roof was collapsing. Watching fire personnel do what they could to save the brick structure was too much to bear though. Its tough, its tough looking at it, said Lakhani, his already red eyes welling up with tears again. We had a lot of memories in that store, a lot of pictures in there of the kids. Despite the loss, Lakhani said he was glad of one thing. No one got hurt, he added. We should be thankful for that. Riverland News, Thursday, April 19, 2012 7 000B67D WOW! WOW! WOW!

Companies planning to participate include the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, Nature Coast Bank, Hospice of Citrus County, Lowes (Inverness), Sunflower Springs Assisted Living Facility/Superior Residences and Capital City Bank.

Springs residents was the immediate hike in their rates, but most notably the 25 percent surcharge officials justified adding because we can due to Florida Statue 180. The law stipulates municipalities providing utility services outside city can charge up to as much as 25 percent in additional fees. Two County Commissioners, Chairman Charlie Stone and Kathy Bryant, chided the City Council for its actions, suggesting they could have slowly integrated the rates to eventually match the current city rates. Mayor Fred Ward pointed out those utility users are not paying full rates and wont be until 2016 when the five-year implementation is complete. However, with the 25 percent surcharge, the 1,500 water users are paying 105 percent of the current city rates. Despite public pleas for the past several months to have the surcharge removed, officials have stood their ground. They defended the surcharge and tiered rates in a joint meeting with county officials saying they are necessary in a community that needs to understand conservation. Several residents have not disagreed that there are individuals who are highwater users but contend encouraging water conservation could have been done without significant increases in water rates. 60th year for the annual pageant.

The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and me were locked in a hopeless Mexican standoff. She was effectively arguing her side of the issue and I was, well, lets say I was not agreeing. I will not say who won, just that it wasnt me. She then looked at me, put both hands on her hips and said, Time will tell that Im right. I cannot wait. The problem is, time is never on my side. I simply do not know what it is about time, but it never does me any favors. Always, and I mean always, time proves my wife was right. I hate it. I thought it was supposed to be Father Time we are dealing with. If it is, he certainly does not have the male side of the issue in good grips. Why does time always prove my wife right? Perhaps Mother Nature has so bullied Father Time that he always takes up the side of my wife. The past week I have been thinking about this aspect of life; time. It seems that for the most part, we have put a lot of pressure upon time. For example, my wife keeps reminding me that time heals all wounds. If it was not for time I would have no wounds, I retorted. I got in trouble just this past week because I was running out of time. I had to get across town for an appointment and believe me; time was not on my side. It would have been nice if I could just sit down with Father Time and negotiate a little bit. Would it be that hard for him to press the pause button and suspend time in order for me to catch up? Why is it so important that time keeps marching on? Why cant it, at least on the weekends, just take a slow stroll down memory lane? Often I look at my watch to determine if I have enough time to do a certain project. Time has become an austere taskmaster, refusing to give up one second. Think with me a little bit. Wouldnt it be nice to have every week just one do over moment? How hard would that be? Father Time insists on perfection always. He does not allow for screw-ups, which is rather pressing for me. If I could just have one 15minute period during the week that I could do over, I might be able to catch up a little. He wants me to be on time every time. When it is 2 p.m., it is only 2 p.m. for one second, that is all. I believe there is an error here somewhere. If time is so valuable, why cant I enjoy 2 p.m. for say, 15 minutes? But no, by the time I acknowledge that it is 2 p.m. Father Time is tapping his finger on his watch and saying, Lets keep moving because time waits for no man. At the very center of my life, and everybody elses as well, is the infamous clock representing time. And what a harsh, demanding element this invention has become. Who invented that clock in the first place? Why was it not good enough just to look at the sun and guess what time of day it was? If it was dark, it was time to go to sleep. If the sun was up and it was light outside, it was time to get up. Oh, how I miss those good old days. But no, Father Time tricked somebody into inventing a device that keeps time. Or, so Father Time convinced the unsuspecting inventor. The joke is on us who wear watches. No watch I have ever owned has ever kept time. All it does is show me that time is passing and I am late for an appointment. Where is that inventor that can invent some mechanism or some technology that can actually keep time? I would be the first one to buy such a contraption. Why cant Bill Gates come out of retirement and do something useful for humanity and invent the technology that actually keeps time. I would settle for half-hour increments. I could live with that. For many years now, time has not been on my side and neither has it been involved in the healing of any of my many wounds. Then never, contrary to what my wife says, has time ever told me anything. It just keeps on ticking while giving me a licking. I am older, but certainly, I am not any wiser. And I blame Father Time. He has not given me enough time to learn everything that I need to know. Every day it seems I am always running out of time. And I cannot believe it is my fault. Time marches on and I need to make the best of it as best I can. The apostle Paul understood the urgency of this matter we call time. He writes in his epistle, For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2 KJV). The only time we really have is now. I never have a now to do over so I need to make time my friend and not my enemy.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P.O.

With a victory tonight, Dunnellon would qualify for the playoffs for the fifth straight year. DHS opens district tourney play tonight AMANDA BARNEY For the Riverland News Pound-for-pound Jonathan Padilla and A.J. Basso have been hitting more than the books this Spring. The duo has been hitting the weight room, and their efforts paid off. Both of them qualified for todays Class 1A State Weightlifting Championships in Kissimmee. Padilla won the 119-pound division at the district qualifier two weeks ago, besting North Marion's Darian DeGeorge by five pounds. Its the third straight year hes qualified for the state meet. Basso had to wait to see if he would earn one of nine open spots after finishing second at the district meet. He finished second to St. John Lutherans Chris Frazier in the 183-pound division. Fraiser totaled 595 to win the weight class over Basso by 50 pounds. He originally got started in weightlifting when assistant football coach Tommy Sutton told him it would help him in other sports and make him more physically fit. Padilla at first thought that it was going to be difficult, but when he began it came naturally and pretty easy than it looked. The thing Padilla likes most is challenging himself to lift more, to push himself, giving himself motivation along with his friends, coaches and importantly family. Weightlifting to Padilla is more like a hobby than anything. He doesnt have a process he follows for workouts, he just warms up in the afternoon workouts. No form, just lifting. His favorite style of lifting is the bench press. Much better form, and I can do it all day, Padilla said. His record for the season so far is four first-place finishes and one third-place place finish. Winning to Padilla means being stronger than his opponent, and lifting more feeling the strongest. I try not to get a big head and say Im a lot stronger and better when I win because they might be better at something else than me, Padilla said. Hes an extremely hard worker, said Padillas coach, Tommy Sutton. Hes easy to coach and fun to be around. JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsA.J. Basso, pictured here during his sophomore year, will compete today in the Class 1A State Weightlifting Championships in Kissimmee. He and fellow teammate, Jonathan Padilla, will make the trip. This is Padillas third straight year qualifying for the state tournament. Padilla, Basso qualify for todays state weightlifting meet MORGAN SHALNA For the Riverland News Jonathan Padilla A.J. Basso FWC officials to meet May 2 to 3 in Crystal River The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will meet May 2 to 3 at The Plantation Inn, Crystal River, to discuss several fish-and-wildlife conservation issues, including red snapper and roundscale spearfish management, anchoring and mooring, wild hog management and manatee zones. The May 2-3 dates reflect a change of schedule, but the location is the same. On the first day, following recognition of individual FWC employees for their marine fisheries conservation efforts, the focus shifts to the consent agenda, a report by FWC Executive Director Nick Wiley and staff updates on the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council and the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council. Items on the marine fisheries agenda include final approval of amendments that would set the 2012 Gulf of Mexico recreational red snapper season, and three of the consent agenda items: the management of roundscale spearfish and language updates to reef fish recreational bag limits and to the Spiny Lobster Trap Certificate Program. Roundscale spearfish harvest has been prohibited in state waters since 1999 because the fish rarely come into Florida waters. The consent Special to the Riverland News See FWC page 17

16 Riverland News, Thursday, April 19, 2012 With Dunnellons Boomtown Days rapidly approaching, what better way to round out the festivities than the 60th anniversary of the Queen of the Rainbow Pageant starting at 1 p.m. Sunday, April 22, in the First Real Estate parking lot. This year, five contestants will be competing for the $500 grand prize, along with many other gift certificates and awards. Three DHS seniors: Chelsea Dominey, Brittany Lakhani and Alora Thompson; a DHS sophomore, Ashley Nicki Paden; and one high school graduate, Tiffany Burch rounds out the diverse group of participants. Each contestant will be interviewed, asked a round of stage questions, compete in an evening gown portion and speak about their chosen platform. A platform is a community service project the contestant intends to complete if crowned Queen of the Rainbow. I hope the girls are able to look back at this experience and feel like they learned how important our community is, said Heidi Schwier, who is directing the pageant for the sixth consecutive year. Taking part in the pageant is just one way of being able to come together with citizens, of all ages, of Dunnellon and represent what they believe in.Chelsea DomineyDominey is a 17-year-old senior at Dunnellon High School. She was born in Colorado and to Jeff and Julie Dominey. She has two siblings, Jeremy and Montana. In her high school career, Dominey has been involved in golf, FFA, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and National Honor Society. She was on the high school varsity cheerleading team for three years. Dominey was crowned Homecoming Queen 2011 last fall. She follows in the footsteps of her mother and grandmother, who were also chosen as Dunnellon Homecoming Queens their senior years in high school. She was also on the Miss DHS Court for 2011. My aunt won the competition and my mom encouraged me to enter, Dominey said, explaining her reason for entering, adding as a senior she might as well do it; you only live once. Domineys platform is about taking a stand against texting and driving. She encourages anyone that has the urge to start texting while driving to stop the car and pull over to text. There are also cars that can text for you, Dominey added, admitted to previously having texting and driven in the past. I stopped when I started researching about texting and driving; 64 percent of crashes last year involving people between the ages of 16 and 20 were the result of the driver texting. See Azwell Vision Center is Domineys sponsor. Brittany LakhaniThe 17-year-old senior, is the daughter of Zolf and Bobbi Lakhani, and has a younger sister, Danielle. Lakhani attends Dunnellon High School and is dual-enrolled at the College of Central Florida. She has been involved in Cross Country and Track and Field. Lakhani is Senior Class president and National Honor Society vice president. She was also chosen to represent DHS at the Young Leaders Conference at the University of Florida. Lakhani began competing in pageants when she was young and has since been in six competitions in the past few years. Her platform for the competition is centered on taking a stand against bullying. I chose this platform because I have been bullied, said Lakhani, whose sponsor is Lakhani is sponsored by Avonelle Mackerell, Attorney at Law. Lakhani is strongly opinionated when it comes to bullying leading to suicide. If I was to speak with someone who was considering suicide I would tell them that they are beautiful in Gods eyes and that He has a purpose for them, she explained. These people who are bullying you are not worth taking for your life for. You are strong and you can go out and be who you want to be. Lakhani strives for all students, of all ages, to be aware of different types of bullying. It would be nice to also create an after school program a few times a week where students can come together and talk about their experiences together, Lakhani said.

The proposed final rule would allow harvest of roundscale spearfish, adding it to the marlin and sailfish one-fish bag and possession limit. Also on the consent agenda are two draft rule items that propose updating rule language. These updates are part of a recent effort to clarify marine fisheries rules and make them easier to understand. The first change will update the multi-day charter trip and off-water possession limits for reef fish. The Spiny Lobster Trap Certificate Program consent agenda item will make FWC rule match Florida Statute by shortening the length of time trap certificate fees can go unpaid before the certificate reverts back to the FWC and can no longer be reissued. Hunting issues are also on the consent agenda. Staff will request approval of rules to expand gray squirrel season on private lands and, in concert with this change, to retain current gray squirrel seasons on wildlife management areas and environmental areas. Next, the agenda turns to an anchoring and mooring pilot program ordinance for St. Petersburg. The city ordinance applies to anchoring or mooring nonlive-aboard vessels outside the marked boundaries of public mooring fields. Approval by the Commission is required before the ordinance can be enforced. Following that, staff will report on wild hog management in Florida and how it provides for hunting opportunities and other tools to control feral hogs. Before recessing the May 2 portion of the twoday meeting, the public will be invited to comment on items not on the agenda. The second day also starts with recognition of conservation excellence and a presentation of a Youth Hunting Program Landowner of the Year award. Next on the agenda is a proposed rule to establish new state zones that limit allowable motorboat speeds in portions of Flagler County from May 1 to Sept. 7, remove existing zones in Flagler County that are a part of the Volusia County rule, and provide a reference to the location of maps illustrating the zones. An update on the Central Everglades Restoration Project is next, followed by other staff reports and public comment on items not on the agenda. Anyone requiring special accommodations to participate in the meeting should advise the FWC at least five calendar days prior to the May 2 meeting by contacting the FWC's Office of Human Resources at 850-488-6411. If you are hearingor speech-impaired, contact the FWC using the Florida Relay Service at 800-9558771 (TDD) or 800-955-8770 (voice).

The 18year-old is involved in a myriad of after -school activities. She plays softball year-round, has been on the DHS swimming team for three consecutive years and played volleyball for two years. Thompson was in FFA for two years and was involved in the 4H Club this year, where she won Grand Reserve at the Southeastern Youth Fair for the steer she raised. Thompson will be competing in the pageant with her cousin, Chelsea Dominey. Its actually brought us closer than we have ever been before, Thompson said. Thompson will speak about beautifying the community. I choose this because the beauty of Dunnellon has always been important to me, she said. I want to do everything I can to help it stay beautiful and clean. Thompson plans to organize a monthly clean up for Dunnellon if she is crowned Queen of the Rainbow. She is sponsored by Cuttin Loose Salon.Ashley Nicki Paden The name may look familiar to last years pageant-goers. After placing second runner-up, the 16-yearold sophomore is giving it another go. I had a lot of fun last year and wanted to do it again, Paden said. Originally from San Antonio, Texas, Paden has two older siblings, Christine and Kevin. While in high school, she has been involved in Student Government where she is Sophomore Class president, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Future Business Leaders of America and Literacy Club. After two years of high school, Paden has also been a member of the varsity cheerleading team and girls soccer team. Padens platform for the competition is skin cancer awareness. She believes the disease is not common and wants to spread knowledge about it even though it does not occur as often as other forms of cancer, such as breast cancer. Padens aunt was affected and died from the disease last year. It influenced my decision to choose skin cancer awareness as my platform this year because as I thought about it, I was like, What better way to inform people about it than promoting it in the pageant? she said. Paden wants to team up with Dunnellon High School and Rainbow Springs State Park to distribute brochures about skin cancer. I want the sophomore class at DHS to sell ribbons for skin cancer and melanoma awareness, Paden explained, noting the money raised would go toward creating the information packets to be distributed at the state park and high school. Paden is sponsored in the competition by Repeat Boutique.Tiffany Burch Burch is the only one of the five contestants that has graduated high school. She finished high school in 2010 at Lecanto High School. While in school, Burch was Key Club secretary, a member of the National Honor Society and in the Multicultural Club. She was in the marching and concert bands at Lecanto and played the trumpet. Burch attends Santa Fe Community College, but said the commute is not bad because she lives in Citrus Springs. After graduating, Burch, 20, often spends her free time volunteering at the Annie Johnson Thrift Store in Dunnellon. For her pageant platform, Burch will discuss female empowerment. Fero and Sons is sponsoring Burch for the competition. This years winner will be crowned by Danielle Prinz, who was crowned Queen a year ago.Riverland News, Thursday, April 19, 2012 17 HOUSEHOLD SERVICES Changes of Life Home Services, Inc.

Jim Rettick, a Sugarmill Woods resident, dropped what he was doing to make the trip to see the team in action. This was great to watch, he said. I do this, but on a much smaller scale. Steve Doran brought his son, Jeff, and grandson, Gabe, as well as a family friend to watch the pilots in action. He said when they heard about the team practicing, they scrapped other plans and headed for the airport. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see something like this, Doran said. We immediately dropped what we were doing and came out. This is a real treat, a real treat. John Helms, airport manager, said the feedback has been positive. So far weve had great feedback, people were really excited about seeing the team practicing, Helms said. The reaction has been theyd like to see more of the aerobatics, more airshows in general. He said team members were pleased with the facility, calling it perfect. They said the airport was great, that it made for a wonderful environment, Helms said. And they said seeing the support of the community and them taking part in the practice sessions. They were very pleased with everything. The team really seemed thrilled with everything, how friendly everyone was and how accommodating everyone was to them.

18 Riverland News, Thursday, April 19, 2012 FAMILY FEATURES Chef Mary Ann Esposito, host of the PBS television show Ciao Italia, knows all about the joys and benefits of cooking with olive oil. Olive oil is 100 percent natural, contains no cholesterol, trans fats, sodium or sugar. It adds a delicious splash of flavor to any recipe. As a rule of thumb, she says, substitute an equal amount of olive oil for other cooking oils. Here are some more of her tips for eating deliciously with Filippo Berio Olive Oil:Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Has a rich, full flavor, fragrant aroma, low acidity and deep greenish-gold color. Its ideal for salad dressings, marinades, sauces, roasting potatoes and dipping bread. Drizzle it over air-popped popcorn for a healthiersnack,anduseitinChefMaryAnnsrecipeforMarinatedCarrot,Caper and Sweet Red Pepper Salad.Olive Oil: Has a rich golden color; perfectly balanced with a mild flavor. Its ideal as a base for sauces and for sauting meat, poultry, fish or vegetables. Try it in Chef Mary Anns recipe for Eggplant Rolls.Extra Light Olive Oil: Has a subtle taste and light bouquet, which allows natural flavors of food to come through. It has a high smoke point, which makes it perfect for frying, stir-frying and baking. For a great break fast, use it to scramble eggs. For dinner, try it in Chef Mary Anns recipe for Devilish Chicken. Visit www.filippoberio.com and www.ciaoitalia.com for more healthy, delizioso recipes from Chef Mary Ann. Marinated Carrot, Caper and Sweet Red Pepper SaladServes 4 Marinade 1/3 cup Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 1/4 teaspoons salt Freshly ground black pepper 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 2 tablespoons salt-packed capers, well rinsed Salad 4 large carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch-long matchstick pieces 1 tablespoon salt 2 large sweet red bell peppers cut into thin, 2-inch-long strips 1 cup thinly sliced fennel bulb 1/4 cup minced flat leaf parsley 2 tablespoons minced mint Combine all marinade ingredients in a 12 x 9-inch rectangular glass or ceramic dish. Mix well. Set aside. Fill a 12to 14-inch saut pan three-quarters full with water. Add carrots and salt. Bring to a boil and cook until a knife tip easily pierces carrots. Drain in colander and transfer to dish with marinade. Toss well. Add peppers and fennel and toss again. Let stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour, tossing occasionally to meld the flavors. Just before serving, toss parsley and mint into salad. Serve at room temperature. Eggplant RollsServes 8 1 large eggplant (7 to 8 inches long), stem removed, cut into 8 1/4-inch-thick lengthwise slices 2 tablespoons Filippo Berio Olive Oil 2/3 cup minced fresh oregano or mint 1 teaspoon fine sea salt 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper 1/2 cup pine nuts 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce 1 cup toasted bread crumbs, made from stale bread Chefs Secret: Purchase eggplants that are very shiny, have intact stem tops, show no bruising or soft spots and feel heavy. Preheat oven to 350F, or fire up the grill. Brush eggplant slices on both sides with olive oil and place in single layers on slightly oiled rimmed baking sheets. Bake for about 10 minutes, or just until soft. Set aside to cool. Alternatively, grill eggplant slices on both sides until they soften and grill marks appear. Mix oregano (or mint), salt, pepper and pine nuts together in a bowl. Spread a couple of tablespoons of the mixture along length of each eggplant slice, and then roll slices into bundles. Spread 1/2 cup tomato sauce in the base of a 12 x 9-inch casserole dish. Place eggplant bundles in rows in the dish and spread remaining sauce evenly over top. Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover, and bake 5 minutes longer. Serve hot and sprinkle bread crumbs on top. Chef Mary Ann Esposito is an accom plished cookbook author and the creator and host of Ciao Italia, the longest-running cooking series on television.Devilish ChickenServes 4 1 3 1/2 to 4-pound free-range, organic chicken, butterflied 1/4 cup Filippo Berio Extra Light Olive Oil Fine sea salt Freshly ground black pepper Cayenne pepper or dried hot red pepper flakes 1 cup dry white wine Lemon wedges To butterfly chicken, place it on a plastic cutting board, breast side down. With kitchen shears or a boning knife, cut along both sides of backbone and remove and discard the bone or save for stock. Turn chicken over skin side up and flatten it by pressing down with hands or a meat pounder. Coat chicken completely with olive oil, then season with salt, pepper and cayenne to taste. Transfer chicken to a dish, cover, and marinate for several hours. This step can be done the day before. Preheat grill. When coals are white or a gas grill temperature reaches 500F, place chicken on grill, breast side down. Cook, turning frequently, and keeping the fire under control so as not to burn the chicken. About 10 minutes into grilling, begin basting chicken with wine. Continue basting every 10 minutes. The chicken is cooked when a meat thermometer inserted into the thigh bone registers between 175F and 180F. Transfer chicken to a cutting board, and cut into serving pieces. Serve hot with lemon wedges and a squirt of lemon juice. Use your fingers, not a fork, to eat.
