SERVINGDUNNELLONANDRAINBOWSPRINGS Thursday, May 17, 2012Vol 30 No. 30 75 cents FHP: Charges pending against Dunnellon man The Front Porch restaurant serves soups, sandwiches and pie six days a week, but not on Mondays. Good thing. The popular restaurant just south of the Marion County line was closed when an out-ofcontrol Ford Explorer sideswiped a car, skidded along the shoulder of U.S. 41 and then slammed broadside into the building, a Florida Highway Patrol trooper said. Though the driver of one vehicle was airlifted to a Tampa Bay hospital and another driver transported by ambulance to a separate hospital, none of the injuries were considered life-threatening, FHP Trooper Tim Cramer said. Imagine how many people could have been killed in there, Cramer said, referring to the restaurant. The Explorer, driven by 44-year-old David Bosley of Dunnellon, came to rest in an area of the restaurant where the office is located, near a dining room and cash register. The restaurant, which has operated for 27 years, employs about 35 people. The accident occurred around 2 p.m. Gail Barr, whose mother Mary Scally owns the Front Porch, said the restaurant was empty except for a lone cleaning man who happened through the area moments before the vehicle hit. He was not hurt. Golf course owners suing city When the Dunnellon City Council approved the purchase of the Rainbow Springs Utility in December 2011, Mark Kaprelian told officials they had not done their diligence in vetting the whereabouts of water and sewer lines located on its golf course. The owner of Rainbow Springs Golf & Country Club assured the City Council as well as other officials he was certain there was a pipeline directly under the course and there was no way he was going to grant them permission to access the property despite the easement, which is on commercial property. Now, hes taking it one step further. Kaprelians company, Kasmark Inc., filed a lawsuit April 23 against the city of Dunnellon in the 5th Judicial Circuit Court of Marion County. In the suit, Kasmark seeks in excess of $15,000 in compensation, for deprivation of its constitutionally protected rights, citing Chapter 86 of Florida Statutes and inverse condemnation for the taking of private property rights protected under Article X, Section 6 and Article 1, Section 9 of the Florida Constitution as well as Articles V and XIV of the United States Constitution. According to the lawsuit, as a reEatery asks for funding via CRA Vehicle slams into Porch Swampys to open along Rainbow River Horse & Hounds Restaurant & Pub is preparing to saddle up Dunnellon, and its hoping to fetch plenty of hungry folks. The Ocala-based restaurant chain plans to open Swampys at 19773 E. Pennsylvania Ave., along the banks of the Rainbow River. The building has been the home to several restaurants, most recently Victorias on the River. The well-known, wellliked eatery has two locations in the Ocala area; the original location at 6998 N. U.S. 27 was established in 1998 and its newest location at 4620 E. Silver Springs Blvd. opened in August 2009. Wendell Landry, owner of the franchise, told the City Council at its most recent workshop May 9 theyre excited about opening a location in Dunnellon. He explained they worked out a five-year lease deal with the owner of the building with options for two additional five-year leases. He said the key drawing point was being able to find a suitable location along the Rainbow River, a draw for thousands of tourists throughout the region as well as the state. Landry told the Council the restaurant chain is hoping to be open within a month and plans to spend upward of $120,000 on improvements to the building as well as hiring up to 50 employees. However, he said, while the restaurant can do it alone, Landry added it would be helpCity pays tribute to city icon For years, residents and visitors to Dunnellon could always visit Dinkins General Feed Store. The closing of the store in June 2010 ended that era; and months later the community lost a large piece of its heart and history when Chaplain A. Dinkins III passed away, leaving behind a legacy and a pair of shoes no one is likely to ever fill. But on Monday morning, 19 months to the day since Dinkins died, city officials and Dinkins family members gathered at City Beach. Families, who for generations could always make a trip to Dinkins, have a new place to go when they want to go to Dinkins the Chaplain A. Dinkins III Memorial Park. Mr. Dinkins was always so inspiring to us, said Pastor Michael T. Murphy Sr., a former resident who still owns a house in town. I remember when the family made the decision to close the store; that was hard on everyone, especially them. But we respected their decision. I remember growing There would be no rebellion this year at the 11th annual Marion County Student Media Festival on Friday at West Port High School. Indeed, the empire that is Dunnellon Middle School still reigns supreme when it comes to ruling the yearly countywide media awards show. Overall, Dunnellon Middle School students captured 21 awards, including top honors in Best of Show, in 12 categories. A year ago, DMS students brought home 22 awards on a night when members of the 501st Legion, a group of Star Wars fans who dress the part made an appearance on the Red Carpet. In addition to a victory in the top category, DMS brought home six additional first-place trophies, five runner-up accolades and seven third-place awards. DMS swept the Book Trailer category and in six other divisions brought home two top three finishes. Those students, part of the team to bring home Best of Show honors, included: Kelsi Reddy, Cynthia Boley, Travis Colston, Johnathan Cristello, Connor Denmark, River Irwin, Cullen Neely, Juan Ramos, Samuel Torres and Austin Weiner. The kids were really excited, Beth Wood, DMS Video Production teacher, said. All the trophies returned to school, this morning.

River Watch Program seeks volunteersThe Rainbow River Watch Program will start another season this spring and duties are expanding, requiring additional personnel.

The purpose of the program is an effort to protect the Rainbow River and allow to be used in a safe and prudent manner by all. As volunteers, the primary purpose is to assist, inform and advise people regarding the rules and regulations pertaining to the river as well as provide a visual presence to discourage those who ignore safe boating procedures.

Now, though, when I come back for a visit, I can say to my family, Lets go down to Dinkins place. Plans for honoring the Dunnellon native had been in the works since his passing in October 2010. Initially, city officials had planned to rename Datesman Park, but scrapped those plans because they felt honoring Dinkins with a parking lot wasnt respectful. We applied a little wisdom, Mayor Fred Ward said, noting it was Councilwoman Lynne McAndrew who brought it to the Councils attention about renaming a parking lot. She deserves more of the credit; thank you Mrs. McAndrew. The ceremony Monday featured dignitaries and officials sharing the importance of Dinkins name being remembered, not only by todays residents who can recall stories about him, but for future generations of citizens and visitors. McAndrew and Councilman Dennis Evens, along with Dinkins sisters, LaRue and Mary Virginia, unveiled new signage stating the parks new name. Vice Mayor Stark presented the family with a proclamation. He was quite a man, quite a man, Stark said. He was a role model for the youth in this community for many years. Stark recalled when he and his wife were visiting Florida, 33 some years ago, looking for a place to relocate from New York. They stumbled upon Dunnellon in the middle of a Little League Parade, parking next to Dinkins store watching the festivities. I remember when I was a kid, thats what they did in my hometown, Stark explained about a Little League Parade. I remember my wife and I saying this is the place we wanted to be and looking over at Mr. Dinkins and he just nodded his head. Its a distinct honor and privilege to the memory of Chaplain. He was quite a man, he really was. Many of Dinkins family members were in attendance, including his brother, Lester, and his sisters, LaRue and Mary Virginia. City officials worked closely with Lester on plans for honoring his late brother. It was beautiful, Lester Dinkins said. Beauty lies in simplicity; today was simple and a very tasteful event. It was very professionally done. Lester said he put a lot of thought into what his brother would have said about the honor. He would not have expected it, Lester explained. He would have been incredibly honored. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, May 17, 2012 0 0 0 B 7 G 9 Y OUR B EST S OURCE FOR L OCAL N EWS L OCAL S PORTS C OMMUNITY E VENTS S CHOOL N EWS A ND M ORE We have four convenient ways to start your subscription!

The 2012 national Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement mobilization kicks off May 21 to help save lives by cracking down on those who dont buckle up. Dunnellon Police Department will join other state and local law enforcement officers and highway safety advocates across the country to help save more lives by strongly enforcing seat belt laws around the clock. According to the U.S. Department of Transportations National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2010 nationally, 61 percent of the 10,647 passenger vehicle occupants who were killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes overnight (6 p.m. to 5:59 a.m.) were not wearing their seat belts at the time of the fatal crash, compared to 42 percent during the daytime hours. Too many drivers and passengers on the road at night are not wearing their seat belts, and it all too often ends in tragedy, Chief Joanne Black said. Our goal is to save more lives, so Dunnellon Police Department will be out enforcing seat belt laws around the clock. Seat belt use saves thousands of lives across America each year and Dunnellon Police Department is helping spread the word. NHTSA statistics show that in 2010 alone, seat belts saved an estimated 12,546 lives nationwide. Yet, too many motorists may need a tough reminder. In 2010, 22,187 passenger vehicle occupants were killed in motor vehicle crashes, according to NHTSA, and 51 percent of them were not wearing seat belts at the time of their fatal crashes. Younger motorists and men are particularly at risk. NHTSA data shows that among teen and young adult passenger vehicle occupants in 2010, ages 18 to 34, who were killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes, 62 percent were not buckled up at the time of the crash the highest percentage of any age group. The number jumps to 66 percent when just men in this age group are included. While this years Click It or Ticket enforcement mobilization runs from May 21 through June 3, motorists should know that officers are out enforcing seat belt laws year-round. Those who choose not to wear a seat belt will feel the heat from our officers who will be out cracking down on Click It or Ticket violators. Motorists should buckle up every time they go out, both day and night, Sgt. Jacob Gonzalez said. Our officers are prepared to ticket anyone not buckled up no warnings and no excuses. Click It or Ticket. Saturation Patrols have been scheduled throughout the city May 18 and 26 and June 1 and 2. There will also be a stationary traffic enforcement event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 24 at the intersection of U.S. 41 (North Williams Street) and C.R. 484 (Pennsylvania Avenue).

River views Ovation eye-opening experience, humbling too Are you for real? I f you have ever had the pleasure of meeting my mom, you would know she is kind, loving and as sweet as honey. She is the epitome of a tender, docile, generous old lady. So, can someone please tell me why my dear sweet 87-year-old mother loves to watch a good brawl? The trashier the TV show is, the better. I think she was one of pro wrestlings first fans. She would laugh herself silly over someone getting their head smashed in with a chair. Mom cant remember what medicines she takes on a daily basis, but she can tell you the schedule for TruTV. This station has shows about repo-men, people behaving badly and really stupid criminals. As their motto says nobody does dumb better than TruTV. Im not to sure how true all these so called reality shows are. Someone is always getting kicked, punched or beaten to a pulp. In the real world, if I got into a fight and smacked someone up side the head, I would be arrested, and rightly so. In TV reality world, no one gets arrested for beating the crap out of another individual. Violence is an acceptable way of life. Thankfully, I get my sense of humor from my dads side of the family. My mothers side has a vicious streak to it. They laugh hysterically when someone is in a fight. The majority of the shows are bleeped out because of the cursing. I have never enjoyed violence. My eyes are always closed when someone is getting beaten, raped or murdered. I dont find those things funny. My mother could watch it all day. When her 92-year-old sister comes to visit they watch Cops and Americas Most Wanted. They love it! I used to find Cops interesting when an officer changed the dynamics of what could possibly be a dangerous situation. After awhile I had to ask myself, can I watch one more drunken idiot get into a fight or smash into a tree? The majority of reality TV is people behaving badly. These people become famous, make millions of dollars for making fools out of themselves. Since when did we begin to idolize stupidity? Why doesnt bad behavior get punished anymore? It is as acceptable as teen pregnancy and DUIs? Its no big deal anymore. Listen, I dont want to go back to the 1950s, but I do think we need to rethink what we consider entertainment. I have to admit to never liking reality shows. The closest I get to reality TV is American Pickers on the History Channel. I told you about these two funny guys that trawl the world of hoarders looking for antiques. Theres no drama, no fighting, no cussing. The show is built around the personality of two good friends climbing into peoples trash. Speaking of trash, do we really need to see people behaving badly? Do we need to know that America has incredibly crass, vapid and stupid people living on its soil? Doesnt anyone have manners anymore? Do I need to know that my neighbors car is getting repossessed because they didnt pay their bill? How is any of that my business? How does that improve my life? Do I need to The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

Homes were popping up rapidly, there were three nice lakes you could swim and fish in, a clubhouse, a youth center and youngsters of all ages always outside playing. It was a pretty nice neighborhood to grow up in. All of us kids who lived there knew each other. We all rode bus No. 9 to school with the same bus driver, Annie Rae Edison, for all those years. There were a few trouble makers as in any neighborhood, but most of us were good kids and enjoyed good, clean fun. Once a week, with parental volunteers, they would open the youth center from 6 to 8 at night and we would challenge each other to ping pong and listen to 45s while munching on popcorn and other snacks. My parents volunteered often and my brothers and I didnt miss many nights of fun. There was one kid who imitated Elvis, wore leather jackets and thought he was pretty cool. His name was Ralph and he ended up being my first crush. Wonder where he is now? I hope hes doing well and still singing those Elvis songs. Every day after school, we would ride our bicycles down to the largest lake, which was called Lake Bonable, which was less than a mile from our house. The beach and water would always be full of people, some tourists but mostly locals that we all knew. That was our hangout. We would swim and then sit on the picnic tables talking until supper time when we knew we better get our butts home. Sometimes, after supper, my dad would enjoy a dip in the lake, which was a double treat for us. That meant wed get to go swimming again and hang out with our friends while our dad cooled off. Like I said, it was an innocent time back then. It seems my generation was much easier to please. We would even have movie nights and play bingo down at the clubhouse once a week. Could you imagine teenagers playing bingo now? Its almost too funny to even think about, especially when I remember that we used to win groceries. Yep, cans of beans and peas and all kinds of food items. Most of the participants were 65 and older, too. We had a blast. My husband and I took a ride out there on our golf cart last week and I couldnt believe my eyes. The largest lake where we used to swim is all gone. Two of the lakes used to connect in the middle and now theres just weeds and sand there. Not one drop of water left I felt so sad remembering what it used to be and how much fun we had. Remembering the pier where we hung out and the docks we used to jump off. After all, I had my first crush and my 16th birthday party there. What a nice way to grow up. I didnt realize how sad I would feel seeing things this way. What about all the people that bought waterfront property all those years ago? In fact, many of the lakes here in Dunnellon are now dried up, and the drought problem just keeps getting worse. Its sad really. Im going to remember things the way they were back in the 70s. They say all good things have to come to an end, but who knew that one day the lakes would be gone? Anyone know a good rain dance? Where has all the water gone? P erhaps I might not ever come to grips with the impact Ive made in Dunnellon or at the Riverland News. Maybe its that humility is one of my better traits and I dont realize it. Maybe its that Im too humble for my own good. For nearly the past two years, yeah its almost been that long since being offered and accepting the position of editor here, that Ive been fortunate to meet and work with some amazing people in town. There are plenty of friendships Ive made I know are for life; that no matter where my future takes me, there are certain folks here who Ill remain in constant contact with. Those types of friends are rare in life and we should hang onto them with both hands, not so we can drag them down, its so they can lift us up later in life when we fall down. So it was last Friday I had the great pleasure of being a guest presenter at the 11th annual Marion County Media Festival awards show. It was a great honor, and Im eager to be a part of it next year. Needless to say, I was as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. After all, we are talking live television to thousands of homes in Marion County. Have I mentioned large audiences make me nervous? Plus, and lets be honest here, this is a face made for radio. Yes, its okay for you to laugh about that. Needless to say, presenters were required to show up an hour before the show to read over their scripts, meet with their guest presenters and ask any pertinent questions. Question No. 1, and by far the most important: Do I have to wear makeup? My masculinity has strict boundaries. No pink, no makeup. Period. Kudos to Beth Wood for calming a lot of those nerves and my friends who texted me prior to the start of the show. As Wood and I discussed the show and the script, I asked her if there would be a TelePrompTer nearby in case I forgot my lines. She chuckled and said no. The veteran teacher then jokingly said I could always improvise with a line or two from Mel Brooks classic Blazing Saddles, particularly the scene when the new sheriff of Rockridge is introduced to the towns residents. Excuse me while I ..., sorry Im digressing. Now, if you havent seen this classic, I wont ruin the scene for you; however, I encourage you to see the movie to understand the whole picture. Needless to say, as my co-presenter, Dr. Diane Greene, the assistant superintendent of the school district, and I made our way to the waiting area, we shared a few laughs about being presenters for the special occasion. As we approached the stage waiting for our respective introductions and our names were called out, there was a roar that took over. Dr. Greene looked at me and quipped: I didnt know I was with a star. Im pretty sure I was three shades of red at this point in time, with an ear-toear grin. As we set up shop at the podium, in front of a packed house, cameras pointed in our direction, Dr. Greene told the audience she was honored to be next to a star. Then I heard a very distinct voice in the audience shout out Jeffrey! Theres only one person who can cut through the noise of a room full of elementary school students like that, Dunnellon football coach Frank Beasley. I have to admit, I was blown away by the ovation I received. Perhaps in my Kathleen Wallace Jeff Bryan Audrey Beem See SMILE page 5 A different opinion than that of the paper This letter is in response to the No side is right in this fight editorial published May 3. I am a very strong supporter of the Riverland News; however, in this case I believe they are a bit misguided. Your comment that there are people in Rainbow Springs that want to boycott Dunnellon is like me saying all carriers of the Riverland news are incompetent because your carrier threw my paper in the ditch. We have people that have already made the decision to totally boycott Dunnellon. We have advised against that action in variety of ads in the paper and emails within the community. There are in excess of 5,000 people that reside in this area, each has their own mind. Lets clear all the mud out of the water and get rid of all the red herrings. Now lets analyze the issue of the purchase of Rainbow Springs Utility by the City of Dunnellon period. We will go through each phase and let the readers decide right or wrong. Purchase of Rainbow Springs Utility Perfectly legal at this time. No points for Dunnellon or Rainbow Springs on this one. Twenty-five percent surcharge On Dec. 21, 2011, at the City Council meeting, the engineer from Kimley-Horn & Associates reported that he had examined Rainbow Springs Utility and found it to be well maintained an in good order. Shortly thereafter, Mayor Fred Ward announces the we will charge the 25 percent surcharge anyhow, because we can. No discussion of why this surcharge was needed to better service these new customers. The system was in good working order. Fast forward to the informational meeting April 25 at St. John the Baptist Church to clear up question about the surcharge among other issues. This same firm now has a plan to fix all the problems at Rainbow Springs Utility. I dare you to look at yourself in a mirror and find fault with Rainbow Springs. Rainbow Springs 1, Dunnellon 0. Tiered Water Rates (one dollar per 100 gallons. The city of Dunnellon claims that these rates are needed to promote water conservation in the area. Look at Dunnellons water rates compared to other nearby communities and again dig out that mirror. If you water nothing outside of your home, 4,000 gallons will work for some families. Dunnellon: 0 to 4,000 gallons, $1.85; 4,000 to 8,000, $4.02; 8,000 to 12,000, $6.63; 12,000 to 20,000, $10.61. Belleview: 0 to 7,000 gallons, $2.08; 8,000 to 20,000, $2.50; 21,000 to 30,000, $3.21; 30,000-plus, $4.22. Inverness: 0 to 10,000 gallons, $2.15; 10,000 to 20,000, $2.30; 20,000 to 30,000, $2.50; 30,000-plus, $3. Crystal River: 0 to 5,000 gallons, $2.17; 6,000 to 10,000, $2.89; 11,000 to 15,000, $4.34; 16,000-plus, $7.61. Accountability The residents want to See LETTERS page 5 See OTHER GUY page 5


M ay so far has been drier than usual, and the rain that does build seems to have a way of missing this area. The warmer weather is the signal for bugs to begin to appear. Chinch bugs, caterpillars, grasshoppers and scale insects are to be seen, along with beneficial bugs like ladybirds, butterflies and bees. It is important to be careful using insecticides. Overuse seems to make bad bugs build a resistance to poisons, and good bugs seem to weaken and decline in numbers. The bad bugs become less controlled, more sprays, and insecticides are used, and the good bugs pay the price. Spider mite can become active in May, and watering with a strong stream of water can help wash them off. Systemics are the other control unless you wish to try organic oil sprays or neem oil. This needs to be applied early in the morning so the sun does not burn foliage. One cheap homemade insecticide, fungicide I was told about is 1/3-cup Murphys soap, and 1 tablespoon baking soda mixed with a gallon of water. This mix applied early in the morning will help control bugs and be dry before the heat of the sun burns the leaves. One important task in the garden is to prune and cut trees, which could pose a threat during the hurricane season. We have been lucky the past few years, but it is important not to be complacent and cut loose limbs or branches that could cause damage. Make sure you remove the cut material, as this will simply become projectiles if a hurricane did hit. If you do prune try and wait till after rain, or be prepared to water the cut back tree to encourage new growth. Some seasonal vegetables can still be sown such as spinach, southern peas, lima beans, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, turnips, yams and snap beans. I am growing herbs and have found sage, chives, basil, mint and thyme do well here. Flowers are beginning to appear, and deadheading perennials will mean longer flowering seasons. Fertilizing is important with the sandy soils. The sand here does not hold nutrients well, and watering can leach away the muchdesired food to the plant. Early morning watering is best and can be a chore, but is much needed with the low rainfall. Avoid leaving your plants with wet foliage in the night, as this is a prime way to develop fungus issues. Hope all is going well in your garden, and all the hard work is paying off. Tracy Jenner, the Riverland Gardener, can be emailed at tracyjenner@aol.com. be able to see where this surcharge money is being used to fix problems in the Rainbow Springs Utility. Is it being used for other purposes? Denied by city. Rainbow Springs 1, Dunnellon 0. Looks like a shutout to me. There are many issues that the fault lays in both communities, but not on this one. As stated previously, we will start our Target Boycott of merchants that use Greenlight Communications. Those that skip signing up with Greenlight will be supported by the majority of residents of Rainbow Springs. Our rights in this matter are guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution under the First Amendment. Lynn Black Rainbow Springs Dunnellon does it to Rainbow Springs againThere is no trick too mean for Dunnellon City Hall to use against our residents while stealing our savings to pay for their profligate spending and enormous debt. By now most people in Country Club Estates should have noticed that sprinklers are reaching further out into the street, toilets bang when the tank is full and the shower rinses you off much faster. Why? The evidence all points to one answer: water pressure has been ramped up in the mains. This sneaky trick makes you use more water every minute a valve is open. You may drill a well to save on irrigation, but your domestic usage is guaranteed to go higher and higher with ever increasing rates. Increasing line pressure creates a danger to each and every house in our community. When a valve closes, water, which has been rushing down a pipe, has to stop immediately. This sudden stop causes a hammer in all the lines. If this goes on for a long time, the sharp rap on every joint in the system will cause pipe failure and flooding. Have you heard any banging or thumping in the wall? Perhaps from behind a shower head? The hammer can even come from a valve closing in a neighbors house. Everyone who wants to prevent a disaster to their home should call Lisa Algiere, city manager, and Fred Ward, mayor, and demand that system pressure back to the original level. Dan Techentin Rainbow Springs Exercise groups fundraiser a huge successThe LOL womens exercise group that meets at Dunnellon Presbyterian Church wishes to extend our thanks to the Dunnellon/Citrus Springs area. You are all such compassionate, caring people. The fundraiser we recently had for Maggie McCombs, a 21-year-old student who was shot and paralyzed from the neck down was a huge success. The winner of the beautiful hand made quilt was Dottie Harvey from the Pavarottis Restaurant. We appreciate your concern and support. Joan C. Cothern Dunnellon DPD thanks community for support The Dunnellon Police Department would like to thank everyone who participated and sponsored the Kentucky Derby Party, which was held Saturday, May 5, at Abigails Caf on West Pennsylvania Avenue. Every person attending had the opportunity to enter into a chance to win some fantastic door prizes; Aarons Rental delivered recliner chairs and flat screen televisions for two very lucky VIP winners to relax in while watching the horse race. This event would not have been possible without the support from: Christina, owner of Abigails Caf, and her staff; Copps Winery, Tack Shack of Ocala, Cadence Bank, Grumbles House, Horse & Hound Restaurants of Ocala, Creations by Clovis, Balisimo Salon, Injun Joes, Always Something, Hometown Auto, Perkins Dentistry, Gruffs Tap & Grill, A to Z Liquor, Dunnellon Wine & Spirits, Gunters Feed, Penn Station Deli & Grill, Annie Johnsons, My Old New Chair, Dunnellon Animal Hospital, Tractor Supply, employees of City Hall, officers and staff from the Dunnellon Police Department.

Thank you, again, to everyone for your support to our agency and the athletes of the Special Olympics. Chief Joanne M. Black Dunnellon Police Department Waiting for news about country club purchaseI just had to attend the recent meeting of the board of directors of the Rainbow Springs Property Owners Association to ascertain if anything was new in the prospective purchase or hopefully rebuff of the country club.

6 Riverland News, Thursday, May 17, 2012 DHS football team to mark progress in Fridays Spring game The 2012 Dunnellon High School football program is beginning to liven up for the fall season. Practicing for several weeks now, the Tigers are going to on the prowl with the annual spring game at 7 p.m. against Columbia. Id like to schedule a few good opponent games for the season, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley explained. Columbia is a good opponent and it will let us know where we are at with our players. After the game, us coaches will sit down and discuss what needs to be done after that. The Tigers had an intra-squad scrimmage May 12, pitting the first-string offense and defense against each other. It was a really good game, Beasley said. The main point of the game was to find the kids key positions and to also get the coaches ready for Fridays game. Dunnellon has made some major offensive changes. Instead of running its usual downhill style, The Tigers will now operate the Pistol. It puts more of the quarterback into the game and needs a lot of skills from the team, Beasley explained. A lot of new players have been added to the varsity football program this year. According to Beasley, the team is hard working, both lines are strong and we have a lot of speed. Although, the inexperience factor always plays a role into the game we are strong. Chad Smith is a new addition to the team, serving as the quarterbacks coach. Former coach Aaron Richard, who was also the offensive coordinator, is now the head coach at Chiefland High School. This summer also brings a new program to Dunnellon, a 7on-7 passing league. It has been played across the country to help football players practice their skills and prepare for the upcoming football season. The All-American 7-on-7 Youth Football Passing League is a passing and receiving program designed for the positions of quarterback, running back, receiver, tight end, defensive end, linebacker and defensive backs. There are no lineman, blocking, nor tackling. It lets us know the starters from the non-starters, Beasley said. It gives us a good game opportunity to figure out what we need to work on even when we pretty much know what we need to get better in. The football team will begin their summer workouts in several weeks allowing their players to enjoy some of their break before they begin.

them home to sleep with over weekend! Wood considered this victory to be one of the best considering the number of entries and schools. This wasa tough year: more schools, more competition, she said. I really didnt expect the kids to win Best of Show. I think sometimes, I see their videos over and over again and lose sight of how good some of them really are. Wood said Friday nights victory has students who return, looking forward to next year. I have some seventhgrade students that are already making some big plans for next year, she explained. The awards ceremony is a great way to get fired up for the coming school year. The first-place winning videos advance to regional competition. With a firstplace finish at the regional event, the videos will move and compete against other middle schools in the statewide competition. The state event has been a place for Marion County schools to excel in the past few years, having won 44 percent of the top prizes a year ago. By winning Best of Show, students also earned their school a $500 prize. Wood said like most prize money the class wins, itll go toward new equipment. Dunnellon High School students might not have won any awards for their work, but that doesnt mean they, or their teacher, Janice R. (J.R.) Latham-Smith, went home empty handed. During the event, prior to the Best of Show winners being announced, a drawing is held for a new Dell desktop computer. DHS name was drawn. I was so shocked when they called DHS, LathamSmith said. I looked at the kids and they were all laughing and cheering. I was very surprised since I rarely win any type of drawing. The computer will be put to good use by all the students. Though their eight projects did not place, LathamSmith said the students are already gearing up for next years competition. The eight projects submitted by the students were worthy of recognition and they are anxiously awaiting the scoring reports from the judges, Latham-Smith explained. By seeing the projects that won this year, they are motivated to submit more projects next year. Dunnellon Elementary students won six awards, including three first places. Students took home top honors in the following categories: Drama, Instructional and News Show. It was a good night for DES, Amy Roland, media specialist, said. We are already looking ahead to next year.Riverland News, Thursday, May 17, 2012 7 000BGY4 000BF6P The office of will be closed Monday, May 28, 2012 to commemorate Memorial Day Thank you to all our veterans and their families, past and present.

Applications for annual event available online Special to the Riverland News Business acumen According to the FBLA website, An electronic career portfolio is a collection of work in an electronic format that tells the story of an individual including achievements, growth, vision, reflection, skills, experience, education, training, and career goals. It is a tool that gives a complete picture of who you are and includes your experiences, education, accomplishments and what you have the potential to becomemuch more than just a letter of application and rsum can provide. Three Dunnellon High School Future Business Leaders and their sponsor traveled April 28 to Orlando to compete at the state level. Rebecca Strobel competed in the business communications contest; Catherine Jager competed in public speaking; and Amanda Ortman presented her Electronic Career Portfolio. Prior to the event, Ortman had learned she was already a finalist, as her work had to be submitted before the event. Ortman would present her portfolio to judges before the judges would make their final decision. The three did not remain at the FBLA State Convention to find out the results. In an effort to save money, they came home and waited to hear the results. Ortman said she stayed up Sunday night checking online to see whether her results had been posted on Twitter.

past midnight when she discovered the categories were being posted. After a nerve-wracking few days, she learned she had earned second place and had qualified to attend Nationals in San Antonio in June. This was a fact that Ortman hadnt known. She thought only first-place winners qualified for Nationals. While she received a monetary supplement to help her attend Nationals, it is still too expensive. I joined FBLA for the community service hours and to do something other than yearbook, said Ortman, who is a four-year member of the yearbook staff and editor-in-chief. Ortman quickly found out that she would be facing challenges other than earning service hours, such as taking tests and facing her fear of public speaking. Ortmans Electronic Career Portfolio was focused on graphic design. Because of yearbook, I am familiar with graphic design, so it was easy for me, said Ortman. Ortman qualified for state automatically, because she was the only one in the district to complete an Electronic Career Portfolio. A few weeks prior to attending state, she and her sponsor, Linda Molloy, learned she was a finalist. Before I went in, I was freaking out because Im not good at talking in front of people, Ortman said. As she was patiently waiting for her turn to come, she noticed how her competitors were dressed and that intimidated her because they looked more professional. When her name was finally called she went into the room were two judges sat and a few people in the audience. I presented my portfolio, but I didnt think I was talking too well, she recalled. This was the 60th FBLA State Convention, said Molloy, a business teacher at DHS who has been an FBLA sponsor for 28 years, 17 of them at Dunnellon High. I thought Amandas presentation was good, but I was worried about how she would perform in front of people, Molloy said, noting Ortman is the first state winner shes ever had. through Thursday, May 24, in the Media Center.

The suit contends as a result of the action of the city, Kasmarks property has been taken without due process and without full compensation in violation of Article 1, Section 2; Article 1, Section 9; and Article 10, Section 6 of the Constitution of the State of Florida. Under the Florida Constitution, property cannot be taken by the government without payment of full compensation This taking from Kasmark property, the suit states, has and will cause severe and substantial damage. Kaprelian announced in August 2011, his plans to sell the course, less than a year after purchasing it for more than $2 million. According to the suit, Kasmark is asking for a trial by jury. The company also wants the court to enter an Order of Taking against the city, declaring areas designed for water and sewer lines acquired by the city are actually located on property owned by Kasmark, thus was a taking of its property rights without payment of compensation. Kasmark, the suit states, is entitled to secure full compensation from the city pursuant to the laws of Florida. In the suit, Kasmark is seeking an Order of Taking against the city, declaring the city has caused damages to its property without payment of compensation and that Kasmark is entitled to secure full compensation from the city pursuant to the laws of Florida. According to the suit, Kasmark is also pursuing an order requiring the city to appraise the property rights taken from it and to immediately deposit said sum in the court registry along with statutory interest. He is also seeking attorneys fees and interest pursuant to the law as well as further relief as the court deems appropriate. City Manager Lisa Algiere told the City Council Monday night at its regular meeting, the city has acquired the legal services of the Florida League of Cities. She said it has secured the services of Dean, Ringers, Morgan and Lawton, P .A., Law Firm to represent the city in the suit. As per city policy regarding lawsuits, officials would not comment further.

Expires 6/30/12 State Park needs volunteers to tend to gardens Rainbow Springs State Park is in need of volunteers for the Butterfly Garden, which is a pleasant piece of nature where the volunteer gardener work to weed, trim, plant, take cuttings and interact with the public. In season, butterflies and hummingbirds are numerous and fascinating to watch. There are many gardens at the Headsprings area of Rainbow Springs State Park. The gardens at Rainbow Springs State Park are both a cultural and a natural resource requiring some understanding of the history and character of the park. Training specific to your job will be provided. Often, volunteers may adopt a specific area of the garden to maintain. In other cases, you may work with a group to cover a broader area. This position also encompasses opportunities to work on exotic plant removal and exotic removal work days. This volunteer position is not hour specific, rather job specific. If you prefer to work with others, hours will be determined by the group. The ability to work without supervision and a little knowledge of native and exotic flora and fauna of the area is certainly helpful but can be learned onsite. In fulfilling the requirements of Gardener, it is essential to be friendly and have a sincere desire to aid the park. A volunteer uniform (Tshirt) in accordance with the volunteer uniform guidelines is to be worn when contributing volunteer hours, along with a volunteer name tag. Make a difference in your local state park; join the Park Service family today and choose to work in the Historic Gardens or the amazing Butterfly Garden! Call 352-465-8555 for more information or to fill out the online application visit FloridaStateParks.org or email Nicky.Aiken@dep.state.fl.us.

ful if the ownership could obtain financial assistance through the citys Community Redevelopment Area (CRA). We need a little help, he explained. Were here, were here to stay, were going to bring a good product to town. We are going to invest in this community. We believe if we could receive assistance, were going to draw people from all over, such as Mount Dora, The Villages, Ocala and Rainbow Springs. Those people are going to bring money here, at least on that side of Pennsylvania Avenue. The Council, which also serves as the CRA Advisory Board, was unsure if the possibility existed in which it could provide a loan through CRA funds. At a CRA workshop Monday, the City Council, as well as Landry, learned many projects have been scheduled for the next year and there seems to be little wiggle room for providing financial backing unless a project is tabled, City Manager Lisa Algiere said. In other action, the Council: Presented Grace Kolack, a senior at Dunnellon High School, with a student commendation. Kolack will attend The Citadel in the fall on a full, four-year scholarship. Approved a proclamation for National Police Week, which is May 13 through May 19. Approved a proclamation for National Teacher Week, which was from May 7 through May 11 and presented May 8 to Dunnellon Elementary School. Approved a proclamation for Armed Forces Day, which is Saturday, May 19. Approved a proclamation for Memorial Day, which is May 28, and presented it to members of American Legion Post 58. Legion members invited city officials to the Posts Memorial Day Celebration, planned for 11 a.m. Monday May 28. Approved a proclamation for National Public Works Week, which is May 20 through May 26. Approved a tree removal permit for Manko Company, just north of Wal-Mart. Sent two cases to be heard before the special magistrate regarding nuisance and hazardous structures. The first case involves a house at 20413 W. McKinney Ave., and the second case involves a home at 20689 W. McKinney Ave. In both instances, authorities are seeking the right to have the homes demolished. Janie Keele, a member of the Historic Board, asked the Council for any assistance in saving homes in the Historic District. Losing them, she said, could be determential to the citys Historic District Charter. The Front Porch accident was actually the second within a minute or two involving Bosley, Cramer said. He said Bosley was northbound on U.S. 41 when he clipped a vehicle while passing it near G. Martinelli Boulevard. Cramer said the owner of that vehicle was not hurt, though the cars left side was damaged. Bosley continued north and attempted to pass a tan Buick Century across a solid yellow center line. Bosley sideswiped the Century, sending it into a Progress Energy truck that was preparing to exit onto U.S. 41 from the companys Dunnellon operating complex. Cramer said Bosleys tire caught a drainage pipe and the Explorer slid along the shoulder and grassy area by the roadway before it spun into the restaurant. The driver of the Century, whose name was not available, was airlifted to Regional Medical Center at Bayonet Point. Bosley, who had to be dislodged from the vehicle by emergency personnel, was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. Injuries for both appeared non-lifethreatening, Cramer said. Charges, including hitand-run from the first accident, are pending against Bosley. Scallys daughter Donna Sowell was thankful the incident wasnt worse. Its just by the grace of God, Sowell said, that it happened today and not tomorrow. Riverland News, Thursday, May 17, 2012 17 000BG3S *Hearing test always free. Not a medical exam.
