SERVINGDUNNELLONANDRAINBOWSPRINGS Thursday, June 21, 2012 Vol 30 No. 35 75 cents 96 DHS alum raising money For Karon Johnson, life was moving at a steady beat through his 20s and into his early 30s. Then, in 2009, that all changed. The 1997 Dunnellon High School graduate was experiencing shortness of breath and extreme fatigue, not normal for Johnson, who described his life as always on the go. Doctors diagnosed the now 34-year-old with cardiomyopathy, which is a measurable deterioration of the function of the heart muscle for any reason, usually leading to heart failure; common symptoms are breathlessness and swelling of the legs. According to wikipeida.com, people with cardiomyopathy are often at risk of dangerous forms of irregular heart beat and sudden cardiac death. The most common form of cardiomyopathy is dilated cardiomyopathy. It was stunning, you know, surprising, Johnson, the Drum Major for Dunnellon High his senior year, said. I deal with it day by day. Im doing the best I can every day. Recently, Johnson, who now lives in Ocala, decided to pursue a heart transplant. He was legally declared disabled. Due to that, he can no longer work. Missions founder paralyzed in mishap Incident occurred at county airport The 61-year-old founder of the missionary program I-Tec, which stands for The Indigenous Peoples Technology and Education Ministry Center, was paralyzed Tuesday, June 12, from injuries sustained in an accident at the companys facility at the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport. According to I-Tecs website, Steve Saint was conducting a test on a small aluminum airfoil mounted on a rolling test stand when it dismounted and struck Saint in the head causing cuts to his head and resulting in whiplash. According to I-Tecs Facebook page June 13, Saint was moved from the trauma unit into the Neuro ICU. Officials declined to say which hospital he was being treated. He has had slight improvement each day in feeling in his limbs but motion is still very limited. Saint was tentatively scheduled for surgery Tuesday to relieve the pressure on his spinal cord. I-Tec was founded in 1999 by Saint. It is a nonprofit Christian organization that develops and provides resources to enable indigenous Christians. The company creates products like portable dental chairs and vision test kits, which are of help to people around the world. The Maverick, a new project they have been working on, is a flying car that uses paragliding, unlike flying. This vehicle, the companys website stated, will make it easier to reach people in need in remote locations. This accident was not Maverick Flying Car related, a car or an aircraft accident. District announces slew of principal changes Congressman visits with business owners, officials Michelle Lewis and Jane Ashman are on the move, and Kathy Hultman is retiring. The Marion County School District Tuesday announced several changes countywide that take effect July 1. Lewis, the principal at Dunnellon High since 2006, will move to Liberty Middle School this year in the same role. The Dunnellon High alum started working for the district in 1997 as a teacher at Dunnellon High. She advanced to assistant principal positions at Fort King Middle and West Port High. In 2006, she was named principal at Dunnellon High. Lewis bachelors degree is in finance from the University of Florida while her Key to the Heart D unnellon is the key to the Heart of Florida, a long -desired plan to connect many of the states bicycling trails together, creating a loop throughout the region. The Florida Department of Transportation just unlocked a piece of the funds necessary to begin joining together one of the major arteries into the city. FDOT officials released $3.6 million in funding 10 years ago to bring the Withlacoochee Rails to Trails to the doorstep of the city, Blue Run Park. However, several hurdles had to be cleared before the process of actually constructing the trail and bringing it across the Withlacoochee River could begin. Those hurdles have now been cleared, paving the way for the JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsWhen state officials expand the Withlacoochee Rails to Trails later this year, theyll use this location near Rainbow River Retreat to cross the Withlacoochee River and run the trail to Blue Run Park. How city officials will cross the Rainbow River to bring the trail further inside city limits isnt known at this time. Man, 34, in need of heart transplant Congressman Cliff Stearns made the rounds through his newest district, meeting with business owners, local officials and constituents. Despite the new boundary in his district, the longtime Republican U.S. representative has plenty of familiarity with Dunnellon. Once part is his district during the years of his political career, his district boundary changed. But once again, he will represent Dunnellon on the largest stage in the political realm. During his tour of Dunnellon, Rep. Stearns spoke with a small group of local business owners at the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerces Breakfast Mixer at Bentleys Restaurant. Afterward, he toured a portion of the Dunnellon Historic District, speaking with additional business owners and stopping to have his picture taken with the Blues Brothers at Two Rivers Inn. Its really been a delight to come back, he said. Its kept its smalltown charm. Then he made the trek to City Hall to meet with the City Council as well as other officials. During their informal meeting with the father of three, officials touted their fiber JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Karon Johnson See TRANSPLANT page 2 State starts ball rolling on expansion of Rails to Trails STORY BY JEFF BRYAN RIVERLAND NEWS See HEART page 16 JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsRep.

His abilities to lead what he once called a normal life of playing music, especially the piano, have been put on hold for now. Its extremely tough, it was a great deal of my life, he explained. I always gave back to the community. I taught piano lessons, I taught piano for the less fortunate and I was playing for the church and in the community. Thats all been taken away from me. Its extremely hard, knowing you cant do the things you used to do. Its slowed me down tremendously, cant be as active as I once was. Its taking a toll on my family and friends when it comes to participating in family time and events. I cannot move like I used to while awaiting a heart transplant. While he might not be able to do what he loves any more, that doesnt mean the former Dunnellon residents faith in God has been shaken. My faith has always been strong, I believe that God is keeping me alive, Johnson said. I believe He has a purpose, my faith has not wavered, I know that God is in this. I try not to think about the negative and strive on the positives. I know God is leading this. However, before Johnson can even be considered for a transplant he faces an uphill battle paying for the anti-rejection drugs. Much like Trish Bannister, a longtime hairdresser in the community who is seeking a kidney transplant, Johnson has to have $5,000 in a bank account to cover the cost of the first year of anti-rejection drugs. The community, the churches, the doctors offices are doing fundraisers on my behalf, Johnson, a recent recipient of a $1,000 donation from the Dunnellon Community Thrift Store, said. My family and friends are doing fundraisers as well; some of them are in town, some are in Ocala as well. He called the donation from the Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop humbling. I was very excited, grateful, he explained. It just took me by surprise that the community stepped up and is doing its best to help me out. Its a wonderful thing, to have the community standing behind you. Johnson said he established a Paypal account on his website, www.help myheartdonations.com, for those who are able to make a contribution to his cause. SunTrust Bank also set up an account for those who would prefer to make a direct donation to his medical expenses. He said residents, if they chose, can make a donation under the Karon Johnson Help My Heart Donations. He explained once he achieves the $5,000 mark, doctors will put him on a nationwide transplant list; however, hell continue to raise funds for as long as he can because of the cost of medications. Sen. Graham, others to speak SILVER SPRINGS The Florida Conservation Coalition (FCC), a nonpartisan alliance of concerned individuals and nonprofit organizations, will host a rally June 23 at Silver River State Park to bring attention to the threats facing Silver Springs and other rivers, lakes, springs and aquifers throughout the region and state. Through the event Speak Up for Floridas Waters the coalition aims to raise public awareness and galvanize further support for efforts to protect and restore Floridas imperiled aquatic resources. Water is the lifeblood of Florida, said Sen. Bob Graham, a long-time environmental advocate who founded FCC with other conservationists in 2011. It ties our state together, provides untold recreational opportunities and draws millions of visitors each year to our state, supporting jobs and economic growth. The pollution and usage issues affecting every facet of our water supply are serious and immediate, and we must address them in order to protect our heritage and preserve our quality of life. Speak Up for Floridas Waters will feature remarks by Sen. Graham, former state senator Lee Constantine and others, along with educational and outdoor activities, music, and tours of the Silver River Museum and a local cracker village. Full event details are available at www.FloridaConservationCoalition.org. Why Silver Springs?The declining health of Silver Springs, an iconic attraction for generations of Floridians and visitors, is emblematic of challenges to the water resources throughout the state. Over the past few decades, Silver Springs and the Silver River have experienced dramatic increases in nutrient pollution from fertilizer overuse and poorly treated wastewater. The excessive nitrate levels encourage algae growth that adversely affects fish and wildlife and compromises the waters quality and clarity. Reduced flows resulting from excessive groundwater withdrawals and occasional drought have exacerbated the situation; flows from the springs and the Silver River have declined by more than 50 percent and 30 percent, respectively. Unaddressed, the decline in Silver Springs will not only adversely impact the overall health of the regions natural resources, but it could have devastating economic consequences as well. More than a million people visit the springs each year, creating more than $60 million in economic benefits for Marion County. Tourism supports 1,060 jobs in the region, with a payroll of $12.61 million and every dollar spent by visitors is dependent upon the physical and biological health of the areas precious water resources. Silver Springs and the Silver River are just two of the many waterways throughout Florida imperiled by the consequences of a rapidly growing population, industry (including agribusiness) and inadequate or short-sighted public policy. As threats to our water quality and supply increase, the environmental and economic consequences of inaction grow as well. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, June 21, 2012 000A8NZ Eyecare hours are: M T TH F 8:30 -5:00; W 1:00-6:00 Select Sat. are available United Health Care Medicare and Blue Cross Blue Shield Provider Heath Brook Commons (next to Publix) 5400 SW College Rd/Highway 200, Suite 106, Ocala, FL 34474 Dr. James A.

The Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop learned of 34-year-old Karon Johnsons urgent need for a heart transplant from flyers passed on to the president by Rene Ryan, a friend of Charles and Sherryl Branton, relatives of Johnson, and from a Friends of the Dunnellon Library volunteer. Within a couple of days, the Thrift Shop women had voted unanimously to donate $1,000 to Johnsons Help My Heart SunTrust Bank fund. Johnson arrived June 13 at the Thrift Shop, accompanied by several supportive family members. Shoppers were treated to watching Johnson receive a $1,000 check from thrift shop volunteers. A slow-moving, but constantly smiling Johnson was quick to express his thanks for the financial assistance and several cameras were there to capture the moment. One customer exiting the shop commented how gratifying it was to actually see where the Thrift Shops money goes. Johnson was born and reared in Dunnellon and is a graduate of Dunnellon High School. His sister, Sherryl Branton, expressed earlier the community had been so helpful and they were appreciative of the assistance from Dunnellon SunTrust Bank in setting up a Help My Heart fund for Karon Johnson. Family and friends have staged various fundraisers and more information about his plight is available online at www.HelpMy HeartDonations.com.

masters in education leadership is from NOVA Southeastern University. Returning to my high school alma mater to serve as principal was a unique experience and an opportunity that I am thankful to Mr. (Jim) Yancey for affording me, Lewis said. I will always be grateful for the six years I have spent working with the staff and students at DHS. They are second to none. I am proud of the work that we have done together and the things that we have accomplished. It has been an amazing experience, and I will miss the staff and students. Lewis said as she turns the page and begins a new chapter in her professional life, she is extremely excited about what lies ahead at Liberty Middle School. I am eager to meet the staff, get acquainted with the state-of-the-art facility, and welcome our students in August, she explained. I cant wait to get to work and begin this new challenge. In doing so, I will carry with me all that I learned at DHS and my undeniable Tiger Pride. Lewis said pinpointing her proudest moment during her six-year tenure at Dunnellon High would be too difficult, because there are so many. I am proud of many aspects of the work that weve done as a school community including development of the Power Generation Academy, introduction of dual enrollment courses on the campus of DHS and a graduation rate that continues to lead our district, she explained. I am very proud of the countless individual accomplishments of the students with whom I have been blessed to work as well. The opportunity to celebrate with students and staff are memories that I will carry with me forever. In the six years I have been principal at DHS, I have had the amazing opportunity to celebrate with students who have earned full academic scholarships to prestigious universities around our country, students who have signed athletic scholarships to play collegiately, students who were the first members of their family to graduate from high school, student athletes who won two state championships in a row, a student athlete who I watched play in the Army All American Bowl in San Antonio, and the list goes on and on. Her toughest moment, though, occurred last November with the death of Andy Cottrill, an English teacher. Andy was one of the first teachers I hired as a new principal, she said. I took a chance on him as a beginning teacher and he took a chance on me as a new principal. Thats a chance I have never for one second regretted taking. He and I shared an unspoken bond and a loyalty that came from being newbies together. Going through the grieving process with Andys students, our staff and Andys family was a life-changing experience for me personally and professionally. It was a difficult reminder that each and every day we are given is precious. Superintendent Jim Yancey in turn appointed Ken McAteer as principal at Dunnellon High School. McAteer comes from West Port High, where he was assistant principal. He was chosen last month to lead Reddick-Collier but will now head to the countys westernmost high school instead. McAteer started with the district in 1998 as an American History teacher at Belleview High. He served as dean there starting in 2004 then moved two years later to West Port High, where he served as assistant principal. McAteer graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelors degree in history and a masters degree in educational leadership. The one concerning question I had unanswered until earlier was who would be replacing me at DHS, Lewis said. Knowing it is Ken McAteer has removed my last bit of doubt and fear about my move. Ken will do an excellent job. When I left West Port to come to DHS, Ken replaced me at West Port, and now he will replace me here. He has done excellent things at West Port, and I am 100 percent confident he will do excellent things at DHS as well. I leave the staff and students at DHS knowing they are in very good hands. Ashman moves back to Romeo Elementary, this time as principal. She had served as principal at Dunnellon Middle for the past eight years. Shes no stranger to Romeo Elementary, having worked there for two years as an assistant principal before moving to Dunnellon Middle. Ashman holds a bachelors in Spanish from Randolph-Macon Womans College and a masters in educational leadership from the University of Florida. Ashman replaces Hultman, whos retiring after 27 years with the district. At this time, Kevin Christian, spokesman for the district, said principal positions at two schools Dunnellon Middle and Reddick-Collier Elementary remain vacant. to the home program, financed through Regions Bank in Orlando in November 2010. City officials sought private funding as opposed to federal stimulus money, because it missed the deadline to apply for the funds, City Manager Lisa Algiere explained. Rep. Stearns told officials there are funds left in the stimulus package, and even though the city is in the process of building its system, he would find out if the money can be used to expand the system. Rep. Stearns praised city officials for their foresight in taking the lead on implementing the utility system. Youre ahead of the curve thinking that way, Rep. Stearns told officials in their creating their own broadband network. In a few years, most of the commerce is this nation is going to be done via the Internet. Mayor Ward explained to Rep. Stearns city officials believe it is more important to plan for job creation than rooftops. Ward said Florida has long been more about building rooftops than creating jobs. Without jobs you cannot have the rooftops, Ward said. Ward told the congressman its one reason the city doesnt want to consider annexing property to the north of the city limits, which consists mostly of Rainbow Springs. They suck the services out of our city, Ward said. We dont want to annex a bunch of rooftops. Mayor Ward said it was his dream to, in the future, lease land at the DunnellonMarion County Airport to build a facility and help improve the infrastructure at the facility to include fiber, water and sewer. Wed also like to be able to apply for FAA grants and bring in some commercial industry there, he said. The opportunities out there have languished for decades. Rep. Stearns said he would do what he could to make sure Dunnellon could continue to thrive as a small town, unlike so many hes seen across the state that have felt the crunch of the economy. Ill do what I can to help make you as a competitive a city as I can, he explained.

However, homes are still needed for about six children (five boys and one girl), plus at least one reserve house in case of an emergency, said Pam Lange, the program coordinator for those students coming to Dunnellon. The conditions to host a child include having a bed for them and providing transportation to and from the school in the mornings and evenings. Theyll entertain themselves, Lange said. We just need folks to provide a temporary place for them to stay. Families who host a student and have a child of their own preparing to enter high school will earn 15 hours of community service, Lange said. There will be one final information meeting before the students arrive July 18. That meeting is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. at the Dunnellon Public Library for host families as they can learn more about what to expect during their stay through Aug. 4. The program is part of the Educational Homestay Program for Education First, a nonprofit organization based in Cambridge, Mass. Lange said students will take English classes during the mornings at Dunnellon Christian Academy, using the afternoon to take field trips to nearby locations to learn more about American culture. As part of their cultural experience, students will stay with American families, Lange said. At the end of their time in school, officials will hold a graduation ceremony and a trip to Orlando is in the works for the students.

River views Fan will no longer cheer for Florida softballI was so surprised to read that the Fagans were taken off the team at the University of Florida. The coach of the team has made a huge mistake for dropping Kasey and Samantha Fagan off his team. The coach Im sure will live to regret his decision. If you have the privilege of meeting Nancy and Kevin, and their children, you would see what a really exceptionally nice family they are. I was a Gator fan but their coach has certainly ruined my feelings toward the University of Florida. I will cheer for whatever college is lucky enough to get the Fagan young ladies on their team. Sincerely,Miriam Lapham Dunnellon New opportunity for the city of Dunnellon Recently, your paper carried an article detailing the results of a poll taken by the Rainbow Springs POA asking their Members to approve or deny a study to consider the purchase of the Rainbow Springs Golf and Country Club. Overwhelmingly, the members rejected the study and showed no interest in purchasing the club at this time. Now its time for the city of Dunnellon to act. Mayor Ward and City Manager Lisa Algiere should immediately contact Kasmark Inc. (Club Owner) and begin negotiating for the purchase of this facility. This could be another enterprise of the city of Dunnellon joining their red-light camera business, Greenlight (soon to be available) Communications and the Department of Water and Sewage. Im pretty sure Kasmark Inc. would be willing to accept $1 or $2 million more than his asking price when the citys astute negotiators, paid consultants and officials get down to business. Kasmark would probably even drop their lawsuit against the city after the purchase. The cost of membership and greens fees for the members of the new enterprise could be as follows; city residents, current dues and fees, Rainbow Springs Residents, a 20 percent discount of the current fees plus a 25 percent surcharge; Rio Vista, Juliette Falls, residents and others, full current fees plus the 25 percent surcharge. Rates subject to annual review, of course. The additional $4 or $5 million of long-term debt added to the citys $20 million or so would result in each of the citys 1,750 residents now looking at an individual obligation of approximately $14,000 per resident. These long term obligations could easily be met by putting red-light camLeaders vision for citys future needs clarity New compassionate allowances conditions mean faster decisions for thousands of disabled people I n April, Social Security announced 52 new Compassionate Allowances conditions to the growing list of severe medical conditions that qualify for expedited medical decisions. The new conditions include many neurological disorders, cancers, and rare diseases. The Compassionate Allowances initiative is a way of quickly identifying diseases and other medical conditions that invariably qualify as disabled based on minimal medical information. Compassionate Allowances allow Social Security to quickly identify the most obviously disabled individuals for allowances based on objective medical information that we can obtain quickly. The announcement of 52 new conditions, effective in August, will increase the total number of Compassionate Allowances conditions to 165. That list continues to grow as Social Security, the National Institutes of Health, and a number of patient organizations help identify new conditions that clearly warrant quick approvals. Social Security will continue to work with the medical community and patient organizations to add more conditions, Commissioner Astrue said. With our Compassionate Allowances program, we quickly approved disability benefits for nearly 61,000 people with severe disabilities in the past fiscal year, and nearly 173,000 applications since the program began. Social Security develops the list of Compassionate Allowances conditions from information received at public outreach hearings, comments received from the disability community, counsel of medical and scientific experts, and research with the National Institutes of Health. Also, we consider which conditions are most likely to meet our definition of disability.

She reported that long-term care insurance premiums have increased between 30 and 50 percent in the past five years, taking this option to pay for at home or institutional long-term care costs beyond the reach of many of us. This fact, coupled with the widespread cutting of state based Medicaid benefits, which heretofore has paid for the bills of 64 percent of nursing home residents, means, according to Ms. Quinn: Without private insurance, access to Medicaid or a barrelful of money, youre depending entirely on good health, good luck or if that fails good relatives. More families will have to shoulder the costs of elder care. Fewer children will inherit anything after the bills are paid. A few months ago in the Riverland News, I issued a challenge to its readers to explore the possibility of joining the new Villages Concept of nonprofit organizations, whose members help each other stay in their homes as long as possible to avoid being prematurely forced into long-term care institutions or becoming inordinate burdens upon their families. Unfortunately, there were no takers to my challenge for volunteers to form an exploratory committee. This latest AARP article only serves to underscore the growing urgency for the need to create more of these entities especially here in Florida; where surprisingly none yet exist! (Here is a computer link for those that would like to check out this concept: (www.vtvnetwork.org). Talking about relevant articles, last week there was a story in the Star-Banner about retirement communities being forced to deal with the increasing number of golf courses that are going belly up. The article recounted various nightmare scenarios of retirement communities that are now saddled with the maintenance and operation of its golf courses either purchased from private owners in danger of defaulting on their loans or from court clerks on the courthouse steps after being foreclosed upon by their mortgage holders. The suit by the owner of the Rainbow Springs Country Club against the city of Dunnellon because of the utility lines located under the golf course has added yet another act to the threering circus atmosphere that is coming City needs to find resolutions to ongoing problems N early two years ago when I joined the Riverland News I was eagerly excited about the towns direction, especially with the addition of Greenlight Dunnellon Communications. I must admit, that excitement has waned a lot, because frankly officials are missing the bigger picture and the more immediate needs of its residents and business community. They talk of job creation long after theyre gone, annexation of areas, which will ultimately create urban sprawl and additional stress upon the aging infrastructure already in place. That doesnt even cover the added burden on services such as public works as well as police and fire. Perhaps officials will be able to add additional traffic signals as well as redlight cameras to calm traffic heading toward Ocala to do their shopping and dining. Folks, lets be brutally honest and up front, those who come to visit Dunnellon arent here for high-speed Internet. Theyre not coming here for high-tech jobs (California, Oregon and other states in the U.S. long ago cornered the market in that area). People who come to Dunnellon come here for the state park, the rivers, the nationally renowned bass fishing in the area lakes, the nearby natural wildlife systems and the bicycle trails. Theyve been doing it for years, and theyll continue doing it for centuries to come. While Im not discounting the need for better Internet, phone and television services in the area, city officials have fumbled the ball on creating a utility folks want to use. Long delays, mismanagement and expenditures they dont need or could have waited for were rubber stamped without much discussion. Alienating a potential client base of 3,000-plus prospective subscribers doesnt make much sense either. At any point during the delays of Greenlights launch did it ever cross the minds of city officials to temporarily lay off those hired at Greenlight? One never knows, because the folks at City Hall arent very forthcoming with answers. Looking toward the future is certainly admirable, but what about the present? Folks are struggling, businesses are struggling, yet no one seems to take note of it. No one talks about it. Dunnellon is a perfect place for ecotourism; city officials have touted the benefits of capturing the millions of dollars that could potentially be pouring into city coffers on a yearly basis. Yet, city officials are lax to do anything about it. Is it simply because youre concerned with the view from your dock? Frankly, stop throwing around the phrases such as economy of scale and start being proactive in finding a solution that provides an immediate economic boost to the community. Otherwise the groundwork and millions of dollars officials have spent for jobs of the future wont mean anything if there is no future left to speak of. Now I realize this next statement will make people cringe, and while my publisher has always warned me about the Cheerios test, this will make folks heads spin. Local, longtime business owner Jerry Vaughn brought up the point several months ago in a guest column, simply asking where the hotel is going to go on the river. Cringe if you might, because Ive put a lot of thought behind it, and we can Jeff Bryan See OTHER GUY page 5 Walt Wayne Adon Williams See LETTERS page 7 See WAYNE COUNTRY page 6 Day of Action event focuses on literacy OCALA United Way of Marion County will host the fifth annual Day of Action Thursday, June 21, and encourages workplaces and organizations to assemble literacy kits as part of United Ways focus on early grade reading.

Kits can be assembled at the workplace or during an organizational meeting to fit everyones schedule.

agree to disagree about his statement. Heres what Im going to ask of you: if youre an outdoor, recreational enthusiast who has come to Dunnellon, where would you want to stay? Would you prefer lodging at the proposed hotel next to the railroad tracks? Or would you prefer a location on the river to unload your kayak or canoe quickly? If youre toting your bicycle with you, wouldnt you want immediate access to the trailhead? Of course you do. It makes sense. Its kind of like the voice who told Kevin Costners character in Field of Dreams, If you build it, they will come. Now is the time for city leaders to ease the pain of local businesses.

In the adjoining rings is Dunnellons city attorney warning the Greenlight boycotters about the confidentiality of the franchises customer lists. In the other, the Greenlight boycott leaders being openly wary of those within their own ranks who might actually be city moles seeking to learn and report back to their city bosses their strategy and action plans as they lawyer up to do possible battle in the courts. As stated in a previous article in the Riverland News, I strongly urge that the parties make a concerted effort to settle this matter as soon as possible prior to the institution of any lawsuits to save everyone time, money and aggravation. Most lawsuits are settled after they are filed anyways, with only about 5 percent ever coming before a judge or jury. We, the bystanders, to this melodrama of growing civic discord need to intervene now and make our desires known to the leaders of both factions that enough is enough. These matters need to be settled now in a way that will avoid leaving a legacy of hostility between the winners and losers of a court battle that will split the greater Dunnellon area into two camps distrustful of each other for years to come. There are so many moving pieces to this dispute; chances of fashioning a workable settlement have got to be almost unlimited. For example, the city could give free Greenlight service to all those affected by the surcharge. Its now obvious that few if any of the surcharged will be signing up for Greenlight TV, Internet or telephone services anyways, so the city would not be losing any money by providing it to them for free or at most at the citys actual cost. This way, the surcharged could afford to pay the citys surcharge and tiered water rates by using the savings they would gain by not having to pay their current TV, Internet and telephone providers for these same services. This agreement, barring the city going bankrupt in the interim, could be contracted for between the parties permanently or until such time as the Rainbow Springs Utility charges are modified to levels that are fair and in line with those rates that are charged to all of the citys other utility customers and are also in line with those rates charged by comparable sized communities in this part of the world to their customers. While there is a basic ideological question as to whether a government entity should even be involved in business enterprises that can be done by the private business community, it seems that the City Councils proactive strategy of going into the communications and water and sewer utility businesses outside Dunnellons city limits has clearly shown us where they stand on this question. So, with that being their attitude, they should jump on this next suggestion in a nanosecond: the city could settle its lawsuit with the Rainbow Springs Country Club by buying the clubhouse, course and amenities for a negotiated sum and then turn it into a municipal golf course. By buying the course, the City Council members would be doing everyone a favor for a change while remaining true to their newly adopted pro-active credo. It would insure the long-term viability of the course for the enjoyment of its residents, neighbors and visitors by using a rate structure affordable enough to attract a large enough player base to meet its budget. It would not be the first time a city has done this and Dunnellon, like other municipalities, could hire a reputable professional golf management firm such as Arnold Palmers or Billy Caspers (as Ocala is now doing) to efficiently operate the course. The above scenario is just one of many that could be designed to work out a settlement of the current controversies that beset this area. There are many smart people of good will on all sides of these issues who are perfectly capable of amicably working out solutions to them. I would expect that with the city of Dunnellon pro-active enterprises becoming increasingly involved in various aspects of the lives of its neighboring communities, which eventually the logical result will be the possible annexation of those neighbors. It may be the only way that those who now reside outside the citys present boundaries can have a say in how the citys pro-active actions will or will not impact them in the future short of having to hire a Tallahassee law firm on a fulltime basis. Of course, in the meantime, the city of Dunnellon could, by consolidation, be absorbed into Marion County a scenario raised recently by Steve Swett in his guest column which eventuality would make the discussion of annexation moot.

F ollowing the most recent article, the Department of Agriculture is warning that the mild winter has seen an increase in ticks. These sucking insects carry many diseases, so be vigilant when outdoors in the garden or walking. Check that none have decided to make you a meal when you are busy. One suggestion is to wear light colored clothes so spotting them is easier. Washing clothes when removed will help to control any that have come along indoors. If you have oleanders in the garden look for chewed or tatty leaves, which will be a sign of the oleander caterpillar. The caterpillar is bright orange in color and has tufts of long black hairs along the body. The moths eggs are found on the underneath of the oleander leaf and are pale cream to yellow in color. The eggs are sphere shape and tiny measuring about 1 millimeter. The damage can be devastating with leaves looking like a skeletal shape with the flesh eaten out from between the veins. If you are quick to deal with the larvae by snipping off the leaves control can be maintained. If you do this technique put the leaves into a bag, and place in the freezer for a full day to kill the caterpillars, and larvae. One natural enemy is the imported fire ant, who eat the pupae, and Stinkbugs, and parasitic wasps will help control the caterpillar. Although I do not really want the fire ants. Despite the recent rains, we are still suffering from a lack of rainfall. Remember to water lawns and plants when the temperature has cooled, and check the days you should be watering with sprinklers. Watering less often for longer periods will encourage the roots to travel downwards in search of water. Watering little often encourages the roots to stay near the surface, and during dry spells grass will dry quicker, and become brown. Watering heavily, and causing run off will only wash out nutrients, waste the water you have applied, and do little to help growth, or survival. Out here in the Goethe we have watched rainfall and storms all around us, and had little to no rain actually fall. When reporting to CoCoRahs the maps often are blue with rain measurements, yet here we are lucky to have had a trace. Anyone interested in measuring, and reporting rainfall can apply to CoCoRahs. You can record data daily, or to suit and it is interesting to see how it differs around the local area. All you need is a gauge, and computer. It can be a fun project for children encouraging not only an interest in the weather, but uses math skills, reading, and computer skills. Have a fun week in the garden, and enjoy!

Bill Descalzi Dunnellon Thanks for help with Summer Fun KickoffOn behalf of the city of Dunnellon, Id like to offer a heartfelt thank you to the local community for helping host the 2012 Summer Fun Kickoff on June 15 at Ernie Mills Park. City staff suggested planning a fun outing for the children of Dunnellon. I was overjoyed to see more than 400 children come out to the park to enjoy a day of fun. Many families stopped by to thank the city and encourage us to host the event again next year and I can report that we are committed to do so. And yes, we are planning to bring back Movies In the Park this year as well, the dates are being planned so stay tuned for more information. But again, Id like to thank all of the businesses who made the 2012 Summer Fun Kickoff a success: Food donations Penn Station, Blue Gator, Swampys, Pepsi, Schwans, Cannons Farm, Save-A-Lot, Dunkin Donuts, Perkins Dentistry, Cadence Bank, Signature Brands and Aarons.

And finally the staff of the city departments City Hall, Public Works, Greenlight Dunnellon Communications, Dunnellon Fire Department and Dunnellon Police Department. This event would not have been possible without each of you. Thank you for lending your energy to support and celebrate the children of Dunnellon.

Ronald Duane Murphy, 80Ronald Duane Murphy, 80 of Inglis, died Sunday, June 10, 2012 at his home surrounded by his family.

I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day. I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The first thing is to define what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan my plan that is. I like to get up in the morning and over my morning coffee, review my to-do-list for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do-list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do-list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I finish my to-do-list. Last Monday, I had just finished my morning cup of Joe and finished reviewing my to-do-list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill? she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1. In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere. For the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you? Huh, I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you? the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there, I pled, who speaks English? Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you? So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mixup on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department. For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue firmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood pressure. For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephone-billing mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My difficulty was simply, I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, fiddlesticks does not seem to carry much significance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.) It is comforting to know that God is only a prayer away.Rev. James L.

project to start. This has been a longsought goal of DEP to connect the trail and run through Dunnellon, with hopes to eventually run up along the west coast of the state, said Jennifer Diaz, a spokeswoman with the Office of Greenways and Trails, a proponent of connecting numerous trails statewide. When the money for the design was initially released there were several issues including potential wetland impacts that had to be avoided in the design of the project; easements to be obtained from the city; a bridge study to determine style and height; a fish study to determine impacts, if any, to the fish, etc. that took some time to review and plan. We also had two different consultants to design the project (bridge and trail components). A lot of time and effort went into the actual design phase. Now that it is complete, Diaz explained, and the project has been reviewed and approved by both DEP and DOT, officials are able to enter the construction phase. Construction is scheduled to begin this fall and be completed in Summer 2013. This project will not only serve as a standalone project on the Cross Florida Greenway, but will provide connections into the City of Dunnellon and the surrounding area. This trail is also a component of The Heart of Florida Greenway Loop, Diaz explained, pointing out the Cross Florida Greenway, Withlacoochee State Trail and Van Fleet State Trail, all managed by the Division of Recreation and Parks, all play a major role in this connected system. It could eventually connect smaller communities with the major cities of Orlando, Tampa, St. Petersburg and Jacksonville, she said. It could provide scenic and safe recreational experiences as well as opportunities for many new business ventures in the Heart of Florida. How city officials plan to bring it the remainder of the way is uncertain, especially the most critical aspect of crossing the Rainbow River. Community Development Coordinator Harold Horne said the initial crossing would be to use the extra easement along the bridge and create a path to allow cyclists and pedestrians safe passage along the bridge currently spanning the Rainbow River until additional funding comes into play. City Manager Lisa Algiere told business owners the city will be pursuing grant money for improvements to the downtown area to assist in helping bring the trail through in a timely manner. Well have to get our grants and funding, she explained, noting some Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) funds could be used to help facilitate the trail but no money is available at this time. Officials are eager to move quickly with a plan best suited to bring the highly anticipated and long-awaited trail through downtown Dunnellon. City officials began working with business owners to fine tune the Bicycle Pedestrian and Blueway Master Plan the City Council formally adopted in February. One focus of the plan is whether to add medians to East Pennsylvania Avenue. Most of the business owners, who are a part of the East Pennsylvania Avenue Streetscaping Task Force, were not in favor of splitting the road and hindering access to businesses along the road. They pointed out what the median along U.S. 41 has done to deter new businesses from relocating along that stretch through Dunnellon. I do realize the negative impacts it would create for your businesses, Algiere said. Thats why weve asked for your input, your assistance on this project. We dont want to impact your business in a negative way. Other aspects of the citys plan to coincide with the opening of the Trailhead at Blue Run Park consist of an additional hotel inside the city. Algiere said the city is working with a number of hotel chains in hopes of luring one to the city, but so far a location for a hotel remains undetermined. Horne said tentative plans still include a hotel behind the Walgreens, next to the railroad tracks. Another viable location for a new hotel, Horne said, is the lot next to Brannen Bank. Algiere told business owners the Dinner Bell is for sale and the owners of Blue Gator are considering a renovation project at Anglers Resort. The need for a new hotel does exist, Horne said. Numbers provided during a survey show more than 120,000 people who live more than 50 miles or further away visit Dunnellon on a yearly basis, but use lodging in places such as Ocala, Crystal River and Inverness. We need to capture that source of revenue, Horne said. Jerry Vaughn asked officials if there are any locations near the river to add a hotel. Both Algiere and Horne said not at this time, because of the citys codes. Were looking at a lot of options, Algiere said, noting that banks have been tight with financing when it comes to new hotels. 16 Riverland News, Thursday, June 21, 2012 Solution to puzzle on page 5 Best of the Best four years in a row HOURS: Mon.

Gale Gand, renowned pastry chef and mother of three, has partnered with Breyers to put a creative twist on the classic ice cream sundae. Gand says that one of the secrets of a fantastic sundae is to start with highquality ice cream as your base. Even the most decadent sundae toppings cant cover up a shortcut on ice cream, said Gand. Breyers ice cream is full of rich ingredi ents and flavor, and you have many great varieties to choose from. These recipes bring the simple sundae to a whole new level of goodness. From the kid-friendly Spaghetti and Meatballs Sundaes to the sophisticated Mini Coffee Ice Cream Sundaes, theres something to please everyone.Mini Coffee Ice Cream Sundaes4 servings Prep Time: 25 minutes 2 cups Breyers Coffee ice cream salted caramel sauce* almond whipped cream** 1 shot espresso coffee 4 amaretti cookies chocolate-covered coffee beans Arrange 2 (1/4-cup) scoops ice cream in 4 demi tasse coffee cups. Drizzle with salted caramel sauce, then top with almond whipped cream. Pour a little espresso into each cup, then garnish with cookies and coffee beans. *For salted caramel sauce, bring 3/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water to a boil over high heat in heavy-duty saucepan until caramel-colored. Remove from heat, then slowly stir in 1/2 cup whipping or heavy cream. Let cool, then stir in 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt. Let stand at room temperature until ready to use. **For almond whipped cream, whip 1/2 cup whipping or heavy cream, 1 teaspoon sugar and 2 drops almond extract in mixing bowl with electric mixer until soft peaks form.

To give you the scoop on making your best sundae, Gand has these 10 tips: 10 Tips for Sundae Making1.Using store-bought ingredients makes sundaemaking fast and easy. You can always doll things up, like dissolve some instant coffee in a little hot water and stir it into store-bought caramel sauce to make a coffee-caramel drizzle. 2.Using whole nuts and dried fruit for add-ins can give your sundae extra texture and a big crunch. 3.Roll scoops of ice cream in any kind of crumbs, crunched cereal or chocolate milk powder for an ice cream truffle. 4.Use mini containers like egg cups, espresso cups and cordial glasses to make mini sundaes. 5.Make a quickie fresh-fruit topping by mashing your favorite berries with a little white or brown sugar. 6.To keep your ice cream from melting as fast, freeze your sundae bowls or dessert dishes overnight. 7.To make your scoops more perfect-looking, dip youricecreamscoopinhotwaterinbetweenscoops. 8.Use two or more flavors of ice cream in a sundae to add extra flavor and flair. 9.Simply tucking a cookie next to a scoop of ice cream, standing up, can really dress it up. 10.Create an exotic-looking sundae by using a wooden skewer to thread fruit onto, and then stick it into a scoop of ice cream. Use things like berries, ripe peach wedges and banana slices. For more tips and recipes, visit www.breyers.com or www.facebook.com/breyers.

Ryan Malloy, a Dunnellon High School student and member of the golf team, recently spoke to Kiwanis Club members at the Rainbow Springs Country Club. Malloy was a participant in the Kiwanis Fore Kids program 10 years ago and related his experiences, which has helped him and fellow Kids who joined the group. Leadership, integrity, good sportsmanship and confidence were highlighted during his speech. Malloy was sure these traits had helped him to become a better person. Mention was made that many of his colleagues in that first class did not necessarily continue with golf, but because of the training went on to pursue other sports and activities. This summer, Molloy has been chosen by American Legion Post No. 58 to attend Boys State in Tallahassee. He is especially thrilled to take part in this adventure since he is a history buff. The Fore Kids program was discontinued because of lack of funds; however, the clubs goal is to reinstate the program in the future.

SERVINGDUNNELLONANDRAINBOWSPRINGS Thursday, June 21, 2012 Vol 30 No. 35 75 cents 96 DHS alum raising moneyFor Karon Johnson, life was moving at a steady beat through his 20s and into his early 30s. Then, in 2009, that all changed. The 1997 Dunnellon High School graduate was experiencing shortness of breath and extreme fatigue, not normal for Johnson, who described his life as always on the go. Doctors diagnosed the now 34-year-old with cardiomyopathy, which is a measurable deterioration of the function of the heart muscle for any reason, usually leading to heart failure; common symptoms are breathlessness and swelling of the legs. According to wikipeida.com, people with cardiomyopathy are often at risk of dangerous forms of irregular heart beat and sudden cardiac death. The most common form of cardiomyopathy is dilated cardiomyopathy. It was stunning, you know, surprising, Johnson, the Drum Major for Dunnellon High his senior year, said. I deal with it day by day. Im doing the best I can every day. Recently, Johnson, who now lives in Ocala, decided to pursue a heart transplant. He was legally declared disabled. Due to that, he can no longer work. Missions founder paralyzed in mishap Incident occurred at county airportThe 61-year-old founder of the missionary program I-Tec, which stands for The Indigenous Peoples Technology and Education Ministry Center, was paralyzed Tuesday, June 12, from injuries sustained in an accident at the companys facility at the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport. According to I-Tecs website, Steve Saint was conducting a test on a small aluminum airfoil mounted on a rolling test stand when it dismounted and struck Saint in the head causing cuts to his head and resulting in whiplash. According to I-Tecs Facebook page June 13, Saint was moved from the trauma unit into the Neuro ICU. Officials declined to say which hospital he was being treated. He has had slight improvement each day in feeling in his limbs but motion is still very limited. Saint was tentatively scheduled for surgery Tuesday to relieve the pressure on his spinal cord. I-Tec was founded in 1999 by Saint. It is a nonprofit Christian organization that develops and provides resources to enable indigenous Christians. The company creates products like portable dental chairs and vision test kits, which are of help to people around the world. The Maverick, a new project they have been working on, is a flying car that uses paragliding, unlike flying. This vehicle, the companys website stated, will make it easier to reach people in need in remote locations. This accident was not Maverick Flying Car related, a car or an aircraft accident. District announces slew of principal changes Congressman visits with business owners, officials Michelle Lewis and Jane Ashman are on the move, and Kathy Hultman is retiring. The Marion County School District Tuesday announced several changes countywide that take effect July 1. Lewis, the principal at Dunnellon High since 2006, will move to Liberty Middle School this year in the same role. The Dunnellon High alum started working for the district in 1997 as a teacher at Dunnellon High. She advanced to assistant principal positions at Fort King Middle and West Port High. In 2006, she was named principal at Dunnellon High. Lewis bachelors degree is in finance from the University of Florida while her Key to the Heart Dunnellon is the key to the Heart of Florida, a long -desired plan to connect many of the states bicycling trails together, creating a loop throughout the region.The Florida Department of Transportation just unlocked a piece of the funds necessary to begin joining together one of the major arteries into the city. FDOT officials released $3.6 million in funding 10 years ago to bring the Withlacoochee Rails to Trails to the doorstep of the city, Blue Run Park. However, several hurdles had to be cleared before the process of actually constructing the trail and bringing it across the Withlacoochee River could begin. Those hurdles have now been cleared, paving the way for the JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsWhen state officials expand the Withlacoochee Rails to Trails later this year, theyll use this location near Rainbow River Retreat to cross the Withlacoochee River and run the trail to Blue Run Park. How city officials will cross the Rainbow River to bring the trail further inside city limits isnt known at this time. Man, 34, in need of heart transplant Congressman Cliff Stearns made the rounds through his newest district, meeting with business owners, local officials and constituents. Despite the new boundary in his district, the longtime Republican U.S. representative has plenty of familiarity with Dunnellon. Once part is his district during the years of his political career, his district boundary changed. But once again, he will represent Dunnellon on the largest stage in the political realm. During his tour of Dunnellon, Rep. Stearns spoke with a small group of local business owners at the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerces Breakfast Mixer at Bentleys Restaurant. Afterward, he toured a portion of the Dunnellon Historic District, speaking with additional business owners and stopping to have his picture taken with the Blues Brothers at Two Rivers Inn. Its really been a delight to come back, he said. Its kept its smalltown charm. Then he made the trek to City Hall to meet with the City Council as well as other officials. During their informal meeting with the father of three, officials touted their fiber JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Karon Johnson See TRANSPLANT page 2 State starts ball rolling on expansion of Rails to Trails STORY BY JEFF BRYAN RIVERLAND NEWS See HEART page 16 JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsRep.

His abilities to lead what he once called a normal life of playing music, especially the piano, have been put on hold for now. Its extremely tough, it was a great deal of my life, he explained. I always gave back to the community. I taught piano lessons, I taught piano for the less fortunate and I was playing for the church and in the community. Thats all been taken away from me. Its extremely hard, knowing you cant do the things you used to do. Its slowed me down tremendously, cant be as active as I once was. Its taking a toll on my family and friends when it comes to participating in family time and events. I cannot move like I used to while awaiting a heart transplant. While he might not be able to do what he loves any more, that doesnt mean the former Dunnellon residents faith in God has been shaken. My faith has always been strong, I believe that God is keeping me alive, Johnson said. I believe He has a purpose, my faith has not wavered, I know that God is in this. I try not to think about the negative and strive on the positives. I know God is leading this. However, before Johnson can even be considered for a transplant he faces an uphill battle paying for the anti-rejection drugs. Much like Trish Bannister, a longtime hairdresser in the community who is seeking a kidney transplant, Johnson has to have $5,000 in a bank account to cover the cost of the first year of anti-rejection drugs. The community, the churches, the doctors offices are doing fundraisers on my behalf, Johnson, a recent recipient of a $1,000 donation from the Dunnellon Community Thrift Store, said. My family and friends are doing fundraisers as well; some of them are in town, some are in Ocala as well. He called the donation from the Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop humbling. I was very excited, grateful, he explained. It just took me by surprise that the community stepped up and is doing its best to help me out. Its a wonderful thing, to have the community standing behind you. Johnson said he established a Paypal account on his website, www.help myheartdonations.com, for those who are able to make a contribution to his cause. SunTrust Bank also set up an account for those who would prefer to make a direct donation to his medical expenses. He said residents, if they chose, can make a donation under the Karon Johnson Help My Heart Donations. He explained once he achieves the $5,000 mark, doctors will put him on a nationwide transplant list; however, hell continue to raise funds for as long as he can because of the cost of medications. Sen. Graham, others to speak SILVER SPRINGS The Florida Conservation Coalition (FCC), a nonpartisan alliance of concerned individuals and nonprofit organizations, will host a rally June 23 at Silver River State Park to bring attention to the threats facing Silver Springs and other rivers, lakes, springs and aquifers throughout the region and state. Through the event Speak Up for Floridas Waters the coalition aims to raise public awareness and galvanize further support for efforts to protect and restore Floridas imperiled aquatic resources. Water is the lifeblood of Florida, said Sen. Bob Graham, a long-time environmental advocate who founded FCC with other conservationists in 2011. It ties our state together, provides untold recreational opportunities and draws millions of visitors each year to our state, supporting jobs and economic growth. The pollution and usage issues affecting every facet of our water supply are serious and immediate, and we must address them in order to protect our heritage and preserve our quality of life. Speak Up for Floridas Waters will feature remarks by Sen. Graham, former state senator Lee Constantine and others, along with educational and outdoor activities, music, and tours of the Silver River Museum and a local cracker village. Full event details are available at www.FloridaConservationCoalition.org.Why Silver Springs?The declining health of Silver Springs, an iconic attraction for generations of Floridians and visitors, is emblematic of challenges to the water resources throughout the state. Over the past few decades, Silver Springs and the Silver River have experienced dramatic increases in nutrient pollution from fertilizer overuse and poorly treated wastewater. The excessive nitrate levels encourage algae growth that adversely affects fish and wildlife and compromises the waters quality and clarity. Reduced flows resulting from excessive groundwater withdrawals and occasional drought have exacerbated the situation; flows from the springs and the Silver River have declined by more than 50 percent and 30 percent, respectively. Unaddressed, the decline in Silver Springs will not only adversely impact the overall health of the regions natural resources, but it could have devastating economic consequences as well. More than a million people visit the springs each year, creating more than $60 million in economic benefits for Marion County. Tourism supports 1,060 jobs in the region, with a payroll of $12.61 million and every dollar spent by visitors is dependent upon the physical and biological health of the areas precious water resources. Silver Springs and the Silver River are just two of the many waterways throughout Florida imperiled by the consequences of a rapidly growing population, industry (including agribusiness) and inadequate or short-sighted public policy. As threats to our water quality and supply increase, the environmental and economic consequences of inaction grow as well. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, June 21, 2012 000A8NZ Eyecare hours are: M T TH F 8:30 -5:00; W 1:00-6:00 Select Sat. are available United Health Care Medicare and Blue Cross Blue Shield Provider Heath Brook Commons (next to Publix) 5400 SW College Rd/Highway 200, Suite 106, Ocala, FL 34474 Dr. James A.

The Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop learned of 34-year-old Karon Johnsons urgent need for a heart transplant from flyers passed on to the president by Rene Ryan, a friend of Charles and Sherryl Branton, relatives of Johnson, and from a Friends of the Dunnellon Library volunteer. Within a couple of days, the Thrift Shop women had voted unanimously to donate $1,000 to Johnsons Help My Heart SunTrust Bank fund. Johnson arrived June 13 at the Thrift Shop, accompanied by several supportive family members. Shoppers were treated to watching Johnson receive a $1,000 check from thrift shop volunteers. A slow-moving, but constantly smiling Johnson was quick to express his thanks for the financial assistance and several cameras were there to capture the moment. One customer exiting the shop commented how gratifying it was to actually see where the Thrift Shops money goes. Johnson was born and reared in Dunnellon and is a graduate of Dunnellon High School. His sister, Sherryl Branton, expressed earlier the community had been so helpful and they were appreciative of the assistance from Dunnellon SunTrust Bank in setting up a Help My Heart fund for Karon Johnson. Family and friends have staged various fundraisers and more information about his plight is available online at www.HelpMy HeartDonations.com.

masters in education leadership is from NOVA Southeastern University. Returning to my high school alma mater to serve as principal was a unique experience and an opportunity that I am thankful to Mr. (Jim) Yancey for affording me, Lewis said. I will always be grateful for the six years I have spent working with the staff and students at DHS. They are second to none. I am proud of the work that we have done together and the things that we have accomplished. It has been an amazing experience, and I will miss the staff and students. Lewis said as she turns the page and begins a new chapter in her professional life, she is extremely excited about what lies ahead at Liberty Middle School. I am eager to meet the staff, get acquainted with the state-of-the-art facility, and welcome our students in August, she explained. I cant wait to get to work and begin this new challenge. In doing so, I will carry with me all that I learned at DHS and my undeniable Tiger Pride. Lewis said pinpointing her proudest moment during her six-year tenure at Dunnellon High would be too difficult, because there are so many. I am proud of many aspects of the work that weve done as a school community including development of the Power Generation Academy, introduction of dual enrollment courses on the campus of DHS and a graduation rate that continues to lead our district, she explained. I am very proud of the countless individual accomplishments of the students with whom I have been blessed to work as well. The opportunity to celebrate with students and staff are memories that I will carry with me forever. In the six years I have been principal at DHS, I have had the amazing opportunity to celebrate with students who have earned full academic scholarships to prestigious universities around our country, students who have signed athletic scholarships to play collegiately, students who were the first members of their family to graduate from high school, student athletes who won two state championships in a row, a student athlete who I watched play in the Army All American Bowl in San Antonio, and the list goes on and on. Her toughest moment, though, occurred last November with the death of Andy Cottrill, an English teacher. Andy was one of the first teachers I hired as a new principal, she said. I took a chance on him as a beginning teacher and he took a chance on me as a new principal. Thats a chance I have never for one second regretted taking. He and I shared an unspoken bond and a loyalty that came from being newbies together. Going through the grieving process with Andys students, our staff and Andys family was a life-changing experience for me personally and professionally. It was a difficult reminder that each and every day we are given is precious. Superintendent Jim Yancey in turn appointed Ken McAteer as principal at Dunnellon High School. McAteer comes from West Port High, where he was assistant principal. He was chosen last month to lead Reddick-Collier but will now head to the countys westernmost high school instead. McAteer started with the district in 1998 as an American History teacher at Belleview High. He served as dean there starting in 2004 then moved two years later to West Port High, where he served as assistant principal. McAteer graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelors degree in history and a masters degree in educational leadership. The one concerning question I had unanswered until earlier was who would be replacing me at DHS, Lewis said. Knowing it is Ken McAteer has removed my last bit of doubt and fear about my move. Ken will do an excellent job. When I left West Port to come to DHS, Ken replaced me at West Port, and now he will replace me here. He has done excellent things at West Port, and I am 100 percent confident he will do excellent things at DHS as well. I leave the staff and students at DHS knowing they are in very good hands. Ashman moves back to Romeo Elementary, this time as principal. She had served as principal at Dunnellon Middle for the past eight years. Shes no stranger to Romeo Elementary, having worked there for two years as an assistant principal before moving to Dunnellon Middle. Ashman holds a bachelors in Spanish from Randolph-Macon Womans College and a masters in educational leadership from the University of Florida. Ashman replaces Hultman, whos retiring after 27 years with the district. At this time, Kevin Christian, spokesman for the district, said principal positions at two schools Dunnellon Middle and Reddick-Collier Elementary remain vacant. to the home program, financed through Regions Bank in Orlando in November 2010. City officials sought private funding as opposed to federal stimulus money, because it missed the deadline to apply for the funds, City Manager Lisa Algiere explained. Rep. Stearns told officials there are funds left in the stimulus package, and even though the city is in the process of building its system, he would find out if the money can be used to expand the system. Rep. Stearns praised city officials for their foresight in taking the lead on implementing the utility system. Youre ahead of the curve thinking that way, Rep. Stearns told officials in their creating their own broadband network. In a few years, most of the commerce is this nation is going to be done via the Internet. Mayor Ward explained to Rep. Stearns city officials believe it is more important to plan for job creation than rooftops. Ward said Florida has long been more about building rooftops than creating jobs. Without jobs you cannot have the rooftops, Ward said. Ward told the congressman its one reason the city doesnt want to consider annexing property to the north of the city limits, which consists mostly of Rainbow Springs. They suck the services out of our city, Ward said. We dont want to annex a bunch of rooftops. Mayor Ward said it was his dream to, in the future, lease land at the DunnellonMarion County Airport to build a facility and help improve the infrastructure at the facility to include fiber, water and sewer. Wed also like to be able to apply for FAA grants and bring in some commercial industry there, he said. The opportunities out there have languished for decades. Rep. Stearns said he would do what he could to make sure Dunnellon could continue to thrive as a small town, unlike so many hes seen across the state that have felt the crunch of the economy. Ill do what I can to help make you as a competitive a city as I can, he explained.Riverland News, Thursday, June 21, 2012 3 A member of the Florida Press Association352-489-2731 352-489-6593 (Fax)The Riverland News serves Dunnellon and the surrounding areas: Blue Cove, Chatmire, Hills of Ocala, Lake Tropicana, Rainbows End, Rainbow Lakes Estates, All the Rainbow Springs Area, Rio Vista and Vogt Springs.The Riverland News is delivered on Thursday to subscribers by our carriers and mail.

However, homes are still needed for about six children (five boys and one girl), plus at least one reserve house in case of an emergency, said Pam Lange, the program coordinator for those students coming to Dunnellon. The conditions to host a child include having a bed for them and providing transportation to and from the school in the mornings and evenings. Theyll entertain themselves, Lange said. We just need folks to provide a temporary place for them to stay. Families who host a student and have a child of their own preparing to enter high school will earn 15 hours of community service, Lange said. There will be one final information meeting before the students arrive July 18. That meeting is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. at the Dunnellon Public Library for host families as they can learn more about what to expect during their stay through Aug. 4. The program is part of the Educational Homestay Program for Education First, a nonprofit organization based in Cambridge, Mass. Lange said students will take English classes during the mornings at Dunnellon Christian Academy, using the afternoon to take field trips to nearby locations to learn more about American culture. As part of their cultural experience, students will stay with American families, Lange said. At the end of their time in school, officials will hold a graduation ceremony and a trip to Orlando is in the works for the students.

River views Fan will no longer cheer for Florida softballI was so surprised to read that the Fagans were taken off the team at the University of Florida. The coach of the team has made a huge mistake for dropping Kasey and Samantha Fagan off his team. The coach Im sure will live to regret his decision. If you have the privilege of meeting Nancy and Kevin, and their children, you would see what a really exceptionally nice family they are. I was a Gator fan but their coach has certainly ruined my feelings toward the University of Florida. I will cheer for whatever college is lucky enough to get the Fagan young ladies on their team. Sincerely,Miriam Lapham DunnellonNew opportunity for the city of DunnellonRecently, your paper carried an article detailing the results of a poll taken by the Rainbow Springs POA asking their Members to approve or deny a study to consider the purchase of the Rainbow Springs Golf and Country Club. Overwhelmingly, the members rejected the study and showed no interest in purchasing the club at this time. Now its time for the city of Dunnellon to act. Mayor Ward and City Manager Lisa Algiere should immediately contact Kasmark Inc. (Club Owner) and begin negotiating for the purchase of this facility. This could be another enterprise of the city of Dunnellon joining their red-light camera business, Greenlight (soon to be available) Communications and the Department of Water and Sewage. Im pretty sure Kasmark Inc. would be willing to accept $1 or $2 million more than his asking price when the citys astute negotiators, paid consultants and officials get down to business. Kasmark would probably even drop their lawsuit against the city after the purchase. The cost of membership and greens fees for the members of the new enterprise could be as follows; city residents, current dues and fees, Rainbow Springs Residents, a 20 percent discount of the current fees plus a 25 percent surcharge; Rio Vista, Juliette Falls, residents and others, full current fees plus the 25 percent surcharge. Rates subject to annual review, of course. The additional $4 or $5 million of long-term debt added to the citys $20 million or so would result in each of the citys 1,750 residents now looking at an individual obligation of approximately $14,000 per resident. These long term obligations could easily be met by putting red-light camLeaders vision for citys future needs clarity New compassionate allowances conditions mean faster decisions for thousands of disabled people In April, Social Security announced 52 new Compassionate Allowances conditions to the growing list of severe medical conditions that qualify for expedited medical decisions. The new conditions include many neurological disorders, cancers, and rare diseases. The Compassionate Allowances initiative is a way of quickly identifying diseases and other medical conditions that invariably qualify as disabled based on minimal medical information. Compassionate Allowances allow Social Security to quickly identify the most obviously disabled individuals for allowances based on objective medical information that we can obtain quickly. The announcement of 52 new conditions, effective in August, will increase the total number of Compassionate Allowances conditions to 165. That list continues to grow as Social Security, the National Institutes of Health, and a number of patient organizations help identify new conditions that clearly warrant quick approvals. Social Security will continue to work with the medical community and patient organizations to add more conditions, Commissioner Astrue said. With our Compassionate Allowances program, we quickly approved disability benefits for nearly 61,000 people with severe disabilities in the past fiscal year, and nearly 173,000 applications since the program began. Social Security develops the list of Compassionate Allowances conditions from information received at public outreach hearings, comments received from the disability community, counsel of medical and scientific experts, and research with the National Institutes of Health. Also, we consider which conditions are most likely to meet our definition of disability.

She reported that long-term care insurance premiums have increased between 30 and 50 percent in the past five years, taking this option to pay for at home or institutional long-term care costs beyond the reach of many of us. This fact, coupled with the widespread cutting of state based Medicaid benefits, which heretofore has paid for the bills of 64 percent of nursing home residents, means, according to Ms. Quinn: Without private insurance, access to Medicaid or a barrelful of money, youre depending entirely on good health, good luck or if that fails good relatives. More families will have to shoulder the costs of elder care. Fewer children will inherit anything after the bills are paid. A few months ago in the Riverland News, I issued a challenge to its readers to explore the possibility of joining the new Villages Concept of nonprofit organizations, whose members help each other stay in their homes as long as possible to avoid being prematurely forced into long-term care institutions or becoming inordinate burdens upon their families. Unfortunately, there were no takers to my challenge for volunteers to form an exploratory committee. This latest AARP article only serves to underscore the growing urgency for the need to create more of these entities especially here in Florida; where surprisingly none yet exist! (Here is a computer link for those that would like to check out this concept: (www.vtvnetwork.org). Talking about relevant articles, last week there was a story in the Star-Banner about retirement communities being forced to deal with the increasing number of golf courses that are going belly up. The article recounted various nightmare scenarios of retirement communities that are now saddled with the maintenance and operation of its golf courses either purchased from private owners in danger of defaulting on their loans or from court clerks on the courthouse steps after being foreclosed upon by their mortgage holders. The suit by the owner of the Rainbow Springs Country Club against the city of Dunnellon because of the utility lines located under the golf course has added yet another act to the threering circus atmosphere that is coming City needs to find resolutions to ongoing problems Nearly two years ago when I joined the Riverland News, I was eagerly excited about the towns direction, especially with the addition of Greenlight Dunnellon Communications. I must admit, that excitement has waned a lot, because frankly officials are missing the bigger picture and the more immediate needs of its residents and business community. They talk of job creation long after theyre gone, annexation of areas, which will ultimately create urban sprawl and additional stress upon the aging infrastructure already in place. That doesnt even cover the added burden on services such as public works as well as police and fire. Perhaps officials will be able to add additional traffic signals as well as redlight cameras to calm traffic heading toward Ocala to do their shopping and dining. Folks, lets be brutally honest and up front, those who come to visit Dunnellon arent here for high-speed Internet. Theyre not coming here for high-tech jobs (California, Oregon and other states in the U.S. long ago cornered the market in that area). People who come to Dunnellon come here for the state park, the rivers, the nationally renowned bass fishing in the area lakes, the nearby natural wildlife systems and the bicycle trails. Theyve been doing it for years, and theyll continue doing it for centuries to come. While Im not discounting the need for better Internet, phone and television services in the area, city officials have fumbled the ball on creating a utility folks want to use. Long delays, mismanagement and expenditures they dont need or could have waited for were rubber stamped without much discussion. Alienating a potential client base of 3,000-plus prospective subscribers doesnt make much sense either. At any point during the delays of Greenlights launch did it ever cross the minds of city officials to temporarily lay off those hired at Greenlight? One never knows, because the folks at City Hall arent very forthcoming with answers. Looking toward the future is certainly admirable, but what about the present? Folks are struggling, businesses are struggling, yet no one seems to take note of it. No one talks about it. Dunnellon is a perfect place for ecotourism; city officials have touted the benefits of capturing the millions of dollars that could potentially be pouring into city coffers on a yearly basis. Yet, city officials are lax to do anything about it. Is it simply because youre concerned with the view from your dock? Frankly, stop throwing around the phrases such as economy of scale and start being proactive in finding a solution that provides an immediate economic boost to the community. Otherwise the groundwork and millions of dollars officials have spent for jobs of the future wont mean anything if there is no future left to speak of. Now I realize this next statement will make people cringe, and while my publisher has always warned me about the Cheerios test, this will make folks heads spin. Local, longtime business owner Jerry Vaughn brought up the point several months ago in a guest column, simply asking where the hotel is going to go on the river. Cringe if you might, because Ive put a lot of thought behind it, and we can Jeff Bryan See OTHER GUY page 5 Walt Wayne Adon Williams See LETTERS page 7 See WAYNE COUNTRY page 6 Day of Action event focuses on literacy OCALA United Way of Marion County will host the fifth annual Day of Action Thursday, June 21, and encourages workplaces and organizations to assemble literacy kits as part of United Ways focus on early grade reading.

agree to disagree about his statement. Heres what Im going to ask of you: if youre an outdoor, recreational enthusiast who has come to Dunnellon, where would you want to stay? Would you prefer lodging at the proposed hotel next to the railroad tracks? Or would you prefer a location on the river to unload your kayak or canoe quickly? If youre toting your bicycle with you, wouldnt you want immediate access to the trailhead? Of course you do. It makes sense. Its kind of like the voice who told Kevin Costners character in Field of Dreams, If you build it, they will come. Now is the time for city leaders to ease the pain of local businesses.

In the adjoining rings is Dunnellons city attorney warning the Greenlight boycotters about the confidentiality of the franchises customer lists. In the other, the Greenlight boycott leaders being openly wary of those within their own ranks who might actually be city moles seeking to learn and report back to their city bosses their strategy and action plans as they lawyer up to do possible battle in the courts. As stated in a previous article in the Riverland News, I strongly urge that the parties make a concerted effort to settle this matter as soon as possible prior to the institution of any lawsuits to save everyone time, money and aggravation. Most lawsuits are settled after they are filed anyways, with only about 5 percent ever coming before a judge or jury. We, the bystanders, to this melodrama of growing civic discord need to intervene now and make our desires known to the leaders of both factions that enough is enough. These matters need to be settled now in a way that will avoid leaving a legacy of hostility between the winners and losers of a court battle that will split the greater Dunnellon area into two camps distrustful of each other for years to come. There are so many moving pieces to this dispute; chances of fashioning a workable settlement have got to be almost unlimited. For example, the city could give free Greenlight service to all those affected by the surcharge. Its now obvious that few if any of the surcharged will be signing up for Greenlight TV, Internet or telephone services anyways, so the city would not be losing any money by providing it to them for free or at most at the citys actual cost. This way, the surcharged could afford to pay the citys surcharge and tiered water rates by using the savings they would gain by not having to pay their current TV, Internet and telephone providers for these same services. This agreement, barring the city going bankrupt in the interim, could be contracted for between the parties permanently or until such time as the Rainbow Springs Utility charges are modified to levels that are fair and in line with those rates that are charged to all of the citys other utility customers and are also in line with those rates charged by comparable sized communities in this part of the world to their customers. While there is a basic ideological question as to whether a government entity should even be involved in business enterprises that can be done by the private business community, it seems that the City Councils proactive strategy of going into the communications and water and sewer utility businesses outside Dunnellons city limits has clearly shown us where they stand on this question. So, with that being their attitude, they should jump on this next suggestion in a nanosecond: the city could settle its lawsuit with the Rainbow Springs Country Club by buying the clubhouse, course and amenities for a negotiated sum and then turn it into a municipal golf course. By buying the course, the City Council members would be doing everyone a favor for a change while remaining true to their newly adopted pro-active credo. It would insure the long-term viability of the course for the enjoyment of its residents, neighbors and visitors by using a rate structure affordable enough to attract a large enough player base to meet its budget. It would not be the first time a city has done this and Dunnellon, like other municipalities, could hire a reputable professional golf management firm such as Arnold Palmers or Billy Caspers (as Ocala is now doing) to efficiently operate the course. The above scenario is just one of many that could be designed to work out a settlement of the current controversies that beset this area. There are many smart people of good will on all sides of these issues who are perfectly capable of amicably working out solutions to them. I would expect that with the city of Dunnellon pro-active enterprises becoming increasingly involved in various aspects of the lives of its neighboring communities, which eventually the logical result will be the possible annexation of those neighbors. It may be the only way that those who now reside outside the citys present boundaries can have a say in how the citys pro-active actions will or will not impact them in the future short of having to hire a Tallahassee law firm on a fulltime basis. Of course, in the meantime, the city of Dunnellon could, by consolidation, be absorbed into Marion County a scenario raised recently by Steve Swett in his guest column which eventuality would make the discussion of annexation moot.

Following the most recent article, the Department of Agriculture is warning that the mild winter has seen an increase in ticks. These sucking insects carry many diseases, so be vigilant when outdoors in the garden or walking. Check that none have decided to make you a meal when you are busy. One suggestion is to wear light colored clothes so spotting them is easier. Washing clothes when removed will help to control any that have come along indoors. If you have oleanders in the garden look for chewed or tatty leaves, which will be a sign of the oleander caterpillar. The caterpillar is bright orange in color and has tufts of long black hairs along the body. The moths eggs are found on the underneath of the oleander leaf and are pale cream to yellow in color. The eggs are sphere shape and tiny measuring about 1 millimeter. The damage can be devastating with leaves looking like a skeletal shape with the flesh eaten out from between the veins. If you are quick to deal with the larvae by snipping off the leaves control can be maintained. If you do this technique put the leaves into a bag, and place in the freezer for a full day to kill the caterpillars, and larvae. One natural enemy is the imported fire ant, who eat the pupae, and Stinkbugs, and parasitic wasps will help control the caterpillar. Although I do not really want the fire ants. Despite the recent rains, we are still suffering from a lack of rainfall. Remember to water lawns and plants when the temperature has cooled, and check the days you should be watering with sprinklers. Watering less often for longer periods will encourage the roots to travel downwards in search of water. Watering little often encourages the roots to stay near the surface, and during dry spells grass will dry quicker, and become brown. Watering heavily, and causing run off will only wash out nutrients, waste the water you have applied, and do little to help growth, or survival. Out here in the Goethe we have watched rainfall and storms all around us, and had little to no rain actually fall. When reporting to CoCoRahs the maps often are blue with rain measurements, yet here we are lucky to have had a trace. Anyone interested in measuring, and reporting rainfall can apply to CoCoRahs. You can record data daily, or to suit and it is interesting to see how it differs around the local area. All you need is a gauge, and computer. It can be a fun project for children encouraging not only an interest in the weather, but uses math skills, reading, and computer skills. Have a fun week in the garden, and enjoy!

Yankeetown Inglis Womans Club awards scholarships Special to the Riverland News Special to the Riverland NewsThe May meeting of the Yankeetown-Inglis Womans Club was a busy one. The club presented seven deserving students with scholarships. The scholarships are made possible from the proceeds of weekly Bingo games held at the clubhouse. Nancy Lou Miller, a long-time club member, creates a weekly basket stuffed with assorted goodies that she raffles off at the games. As a result of her efforts, she raised enough money from the baskets for an entire scholarship. The recipient of the Nancy Lou Mille r Scholarship this year was Katherine Gibson, who is attending the College of Central Florida. The other returning students are, Kaci Alumbaugh attending CCF, and Jessica Altum, attending UF. Seniors from Dunnellon High School are Grace Kolack, who will attend The Citadel; Alora Thompson and Anna Zarkowski, who will both attend CCF.

I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day. I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The first thing is to define what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan my plan that is. I like to get up in the morning and over my morning coffee, review my to-do-list for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do-list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do-list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I finish my to-do-list. Last Monday, I had just finished my morning cup of Joe and finished reviewing my to-do-list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill? she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1. In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere. For the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you? Huh, I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you? the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there, I pled, who speaks English? Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you? So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mixup on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department. For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue firmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood pressure. For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephone-billing mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My difficulty was simply, I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, fiddlesticks does not seem to carry much significance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.) It is comforting to know that God is only a prayer away.Rev. James L.

project to start. This has been a longsought goal of DEP to connect the trail and run through Dunnellon, with hopes to eventually run up along the west coast of the state, said Jennifer Diaz, a spokeswoman with the Office of Greenways and Trails, a proponent of connecting numerous trails statewide. When the money for the design was initially released there were several issues including potential wetland impacts that had to be avoided in the design of the project; easements to be obtained from the city; a bridge study to determine style and height; a fish study to determine impacts, if any, to the fish, etc. that took some time to review and plan. We also had two different consultants to design the project (bridge and trail components). A lot of time and effort went into the actual design phase. Now that it is complete, Diaz explained, and the project has been reviewed and approved by both DEP and DOT, officials are able to enter the construction phase. Construction is scheduled to begin this fall and be completed in Summer 2013. This project will not only serve as a standalone project on the Cross Florida Greenway, but will provide connections into the City of Dunnellon and the surrounding area. This trail is also a component of The Heart of Florida Greenway Loop, Diaz explained, pointing out the Cross Florida Greenway, Withlacoochee State Trail and Van Fleet State Trail, all managed by the Division of Recreation and Parks, all play a major role in this connected system. It could eventually connect smaller communities with the major cities of Orlando, Tampa, St. Petersburg and Jacksonville, she said. It could provide scenic and safe recreational experiences as well as opportunities for many new business ventures in the Heart of Florida. How city officials plan to bring it the remainder of the way is uncertain, especially the most critical aspect of crossing the Rainbow River. Community Development Coordinator Harold Horne said the initial crossing would be to use the extra easement along the bridge and create a path to allow cyclists and pedestrians safe passage along the bridge currently spanning the Rainbow River until additional funding comes into play. City Manager Lisa Algiere told business owners the city will be pursuing grant money for improvements to the downtown area to assist in helping bring the trail through in a timely manner. Well have to get our grants and funding, she explained, noting some Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) funds could be used to help facilitate the trail but no money is available at this time. Officials are eager to move quickly with a plan best suited to bring the highly anticipated and long-awaited trail through downtown Dunnellon. City officials began working with business owners to fine tune the Bicycle Pedestrian and Blueway Master Plan the City Council formally adopted in February. One focus of the plan is whether to add medians to East Pennsylvania Avenue. Most of the business owners, who are a part of the East Pennsylvania Avenue Streetscaping Task Force, were not in favor of splitting the road and hindering access to businesses along the road. They pointed out what the median along U.S. 41 has done to deter new businesses from relocating along that stretch through Dunnellon. I do realize the negative impacts it would create for your businesses, Algiere said. Thats why weve asked for your input, your assistance on this project. We dont want to impact your business in a negative way. Other aspects of the citys plan to coincide with the opening of the Trailhead at Blue Run Park consist of an additional hotel inside the city. Algiere said the city is working with a number of hotel chains in hopes of luring one to the city, but so far a location for a hotel remains undetermined. Horne said tentative plans still include a hotel behind the Walgreens, next to the railroad tracks. Another viable location for a new hotel, Horne said, is the lot next to Brannen Bank. Algiere told business owners the Dinner Bell is for sale and the owners of Blue Gator are considering a renovation project at Anglers Resort. The need for a new hotel does exist, Horne said. Numbers provided during a survey show more than 120,000 people who live more than 50 miles or further away visit Dunnellon on a yearly basis, but use lodging in places such as Ocala, Crystal River and Inverness. We need to capture that source of revenue, Horne said. Jerry Vaughn asked officials if there are any locations near the river to add a hotel. Both Algiere and Horne said not at this time, because of the citys codes. Were looking at a lot of options, Algiere said, noting that banks have been tight with financing when it comes to new hotels. 16 Riverland News, Thursday, June 21, 2012 Solution to puzzle on page 5 Best of the Best four years in a row HOURS: Mon.

To give you the scoop on making your best sundae, Gand has these 10 tips: 10 Tips for Sundae Making1.Using store-bought ingredients makes sundaemaking fast and easy. You can always doll things up, like dissolve some instant coffee in a little hot water and stir it into store-bought caramel sauce to make a coffee-caramel drizzle. 2.Using whole nuts and dried fruit for add-ins can give your sundae extra texture and a big crunch. 3.Roll scoops of ice cream in any kind of crumbs, crunched cereal or chocolate milk powder for an ice cream truffle. 4.Use mini containers like egg cups, espresso cups and cordial glasses to make mini sundaes. 5.Make a quickie fresh-fruit topping by mashing your favorite berries with a little white or brown sugar. 6.To keep your ice cream from melting as fast, freeze your sundae bowls or dessert dishes overnight. 7.To make your scoops more perfect-looking, dip youricecreamscoopinhotwaterinbetweenscoops. 8.Use two or more flavors of ice cream in a sundae to add extra flavor and flair. 9.Simply tucking a cookie next to a scoop of ice cream, standing up, can really dress it up. 10.Create an exotic-looking sundae by using a wooden skewer to thread fruit onto, and then stick it into a scoop of ice cream. Use things like berries, ripe peach wedges and banana slices. For more tips and recipes, visit www.breyers.com or www.facebook.com/breyers.

Ryan Malloy, a Dunnellon High School student and member of the golf team, recently spoke to Kiwanis Club members at the Rainbow Springs Country Club. Malloy was a participant in the Kiwanis Fore Kids program 10 years ago and related his experiences, which has helped him and fellow Kids who joined the group. Leadership, integrity, good sportsmanship and confidence were highlighted during his speech. Malloy was sure these traits had helped him to become a better person. Mention was made that many of his colleagues in that first class did not necessarily continue with golf, but because of the training went on to pursue other sports and activities. This summer, Molloy has been chosen by American Legion Post No. 58 to attend Boys State in Tallahassee. He is especially thrilled to take part in this adventure since he is a history buff. The Fore Kids program was discontinued because of lack of funds; however, the clubs goal is to reinstate the program in the future.
