Starkie Stark, the vice mayor of Dunnellon, died Monday, July 2, at the age of 73. Stark had served on the City Council since 2006 after a long and distinguished career with the New York Fire Department. He retired from there, relocating to Florida. Once here, he served as a Bureau Chief at the Florida State Fire College in Ocala, retiring in 1993. He had a masters degree from Fordham University. Robert Altman, Starks son-in-law and family spokesman, said the family is doing well despite the circumstances. Its just one of those things that are not expected of course, Altman said, noting the death is being ruled as a cardiac, but its not yet been confirmed. He was the pillar of the family. Stark and his wife, Juliette, celebrated their 56th anniversary this year. The couple has been together since they were 12 years old, Altman said. If youre looking for guidance on a relationship thats the kind of people you want to look to, he explained. He was a very great father in law; we always got along great. We had a very good bond. I had a lot of respect for him. He was a very smart man. He was Deputy struck by vehicle, out of hospital Hernandez hit by car Saturday A Marion County Sheriffs deputy who had been in stable condition after being struck by a car Saturday afternoon while directing traffic on U.S. 41 in front of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church has been release from the hospital, a Marion County Sheriffs spokeswoman said. According to reports, Deputy Luis Hernandez, who was wearing his road guard vest, was struck and fell to the ground, when an 85year-old woman drove her Nissan Maxima into the law enforcement official. The report stated Hernandez motioned for Rita C. Ryan, the motorist, to exit the church. She did, however, authorities said she drove the car into the deputy, which propelled him over the vehicles hood. According to the report, Hernandezs head hit the ground and he had lacerations on his back as well as possible stomach injuries. The report stated Hernandez was able to call dispatch himself to let them know about the incident. The deputy was airlifted to Shands Hospital in Gainesville. The accident, which was called in at 5:32 p.m., forced authorities to close the roadway for about two hours as officials worked the scene. According to the report, Ryan had left the church and was on her way home. Her speed was slow and she showed no signs of impairment. She provided a blood sample. Hernandez has been a deputy with the sheriffs office for less than a year. The accident remains under investigation. Career firefigther served on City Council since 2006 Sonic boom 2012 is the time for all the games to begin, even for restaurants. The 16th annual national Dr. Pepper Sonic Games have been going on for awhile now. Narrowing about 2,900 stores from the contest to 668, the games are moving onto the semifinals round. About 175 Florida stores entered the contest; however, 11 Florida-based stores remain, including the local Dunnellon Sonic, which is a semifinals contestant. The whole store competes through rigorous questions and has to perform their normal job positions. We do a lot of studying through a program called elearning and just practicing our overall position every day, said Bobby Hubbard, the manager at the Dunnellon Sonic for about four years. Hubbard has been with Sonic for 28 years, taking his 1997 team to the final 12. Every year, Sonics around the nation register to compete in the games for roughly $400. From January on, employees begin to study and prepare waiting for the games to begin. I believe it is good for the workers to compete like this, Hubbard said. They learn their position while having fun. The competition last is for about five months out of the year. The competition goes from preliminary to semifinals, then top 48 and, at last, the final 12 stores. It is a proven fact that stores that compete in this type of competition have better sales, Hubbard said. Not only is the staff at the Dunnellon Sonic prepping for the nationwide competition, they are learning the ins and outs of the newest addition to the fast food establishment. Store owners recently added a drive-thru window, Hubbard said. Instead of the older version where you had to wait for your food or drinks and have it carhopped to you, now you pull up to the drive-thru window and pick up your food, he explained, noting carhops still deliver food if you are stuck behind the car that is at the window. It gives us more personal one-on-one time with the customer where we actually get to talk to them instead of heres your food, bye, Hubbard explained. To add on, it makes it faster and more efficient than before. Store owners are considering adding a television screen above the window, so as customers wait they can watch Sonic commercials. Taking care of customers is the main goal you have and that is the No. 1 thing you must do in order to get far in the games, Hubbard said. I believe I have a good crew this year and that we will make it far in this competition. Hubbard is also trying to set up a local competition for area Sonics to compete for which chain is the best. He hopes to have details worked out later this year. JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsVictoria Carter serves a young boy and his family recently at the Dunnellon Sonic.

River Watch Program seeks volunteersThe Rainbow River Watch Program will start another season this spring and duties are expanding, requiring additional personnel. The Marion County Sheriffs Office is seeking more volunteers to participate in this program, which the sheriffs office sponsors. The purpose of the program is an effort to protect the Rainbow River and allow to be used in a safe and prudent manner by all. As volunteers, the primary purpose is to assist, inform and advise people regarding the rules and regulations pertaining to the river as well as provide a visual presence to discourage those who ignore safe boating procedures. All volunteers will receive necessary training to be qualified in all aspects pertaining to patrols. Those wishing to volunteer or those who need more information, should call the Dunnellon District Office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at 4026050. TALLAHASSEE Florida has something new specifically designed for aging drivers. The Florida Guide for Aging Drivers is a hand book available at no cost to senior drivers, compliments of the Florida Safe Mobility for Life Coalition. The Coalition, a group comprised of professionals from 28 organizations, created the guide to give aging drivers a comprehensive resource with the most up-to-date information available. Users will find safe driving tips, licensing information, lists of resources, and community contacts for every county in the state. Basically, the guide offers just about everything an aging driver needs to be more proactive about staying safe on the road. This book compliments the website www.SafeandMobileSeniors.org and is just the right size for the cars glove box and available through the: Safe Mobility for Life Resource Center 636 West Call Street Tallahassee, FL 32306 safe-mobility-forlife@fsu.edu Why does Florida need an aging driver guide? Actually, it makes perfect sense when you consider that Florida leads the nation with 18 percent of its population age 65 and older. In fact, by the year 2030, over 27 percent will be over age 65, with half of those 75 or older. Mirroring this growth, an increasing proportion of drivers in Florida are getting older. Currently, nearly 3 million drivers in Florida are over age 65. Most people experience a steady decline in some of the skills needed to safely drive as we get older, however, these changes do not affect all drivers at the same age or in the same way, says Gail Holley, Florida Department of Transportations Safe Mobility for Life Program and Research Manager. It is important for everyone to understand the impact that aging can have on their driving and learn the warning signs and resources that are available to them so they can make the transition when driving may no longer be a safe option. The guide is designed to help aging drivers strike a balance between safety and the need for independence. The hope is that users of the guide will take the time to consider their driving abilities, take steps to improve their driving skills, explore other transportation options if needed, and start making a plan for retirement from driving if it becomes necessary in the future. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, July 5, 2012 0 0 0 B X A 1 Two Divas in One Store 20324 E.

The Marion County Growth Management Department (Planning Division) is now accepting applications for smalland large-scale land use changes, or amendments, to the Marion County Comprehensive Plan 2035 on a daily basis. Previously, applications were only accepted during limited application cycles throughout the year, per Florida statutes. Owners interested in changing their lands designated use, such as going from rural to commercial use, are eligible to apply for a smallor large-scale amendment. Small-scale amendment applications may be submitted for land 10 acres or less in size. Largescale amendment applications may be submitted for any number of acres. The amendment applications may be picked up at the department (2710 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala) or downloaded from http://www.marioncountyfl.org/Planning/lan d_use.aspx beginning July 2, 2012. Required public hearings associated with the amendment requests will be scheduled as soon as possible and on an as-needed basis upon receipt of completed eligible applications. Growth Management hosts amendment application cycles as part of its activities to keep the countys comprehensive plan up to date. The plan is Marion Countys key guide for growth management and provides the framework for how the county will continue to develop. For more information about amendments to the comprehensive plan, contact Michael Kokosky, senior planner, at 352438-2600 or visit www.marioncountyfl.org/ growthmanagement.htm. offer youths a better perspective of the practical operation of government and to show that the individual is responsible for character and success for government. Officials choose 530 boys from Florida each year and boys must have a 3.2 GPA or above to attend. Molloy has a 4.0 GPA and Smith is upholding a 3.72 GPA. Each delegate is assigned to a political party which has no philosophy or platform until the delegates develop one. I wanted to go because I love history, and I wanted to learn more about my government and my state, Molloy said. They collect credits as they attend this course. They also have the possibility to get a scholarship from Tallahassee Community College with the remaining two years at Florida State University. I am looking to go to USF or UCF, Smith said. But if I received the scholarship I would definitely go to FSU. Previous boys who have participated have met with governors, cabinet members, legislators, Florida Supreme Court Justices and military officials from service academies. I am ready to meet new people and visit the state capitol since I have never been there before, Molloy said. Both boys heard about this event through Ms. Love, their guidance counselor at Dunnellon High School. I am most excited for a new experience and for meeting new people, Smith said. Both Molloy and Smith want to major in engineering. After the boys graduate from this program, it will place them with the ranks of alumni such as former Gov. Charlie Crist, President Bill Clinton, Congressman Trent Lott and radio host Rush Limbaugh to name a few. I think this is a good program to get involved in, said George Wehrli, Boys State chairmen. It teaches the kids about their government and looks good for the future.

Mayor Fred Ward learned of Starks passing late Monday morning. My condolences go out to his wife, Juliette, and their children. He was so healthy and full of life and he will be missed by the City Council and city staff, Ward said. Ward said hell miss the end of meetings when he would ask Stark for a motion to adjourn the meeting. His response was always, you got it. It had become quite a ritual between us and I will miss it dearly, Ward said. We had learned to work together in a positive and friendly way and he will be missed by me. I will miss his ability to get the nub of an issue. City Manager Lisa Algiere said she learned a lot from Stark, especially from his experience as a firefighter. In dealing with him as a councilman he was always very caring of the community. He always wanted to know if what we were doing was best for the community, Algiere said. I will personally miss him. He was like a mentor to me with all the life experiences he shared. I will miss him very much. His smile always lit up the room. Louise Kenney, who served on the Council with Stark from 2006 to 2008, was shocked and saddened to hear the news about her former colleague. He was totally committed to the city, he cared about the people who lived here, he was a, she said, pausing. He was a great leader. I will miss him dearly. My prayers go to the family and Juliette. Services are pending. However, in lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Wounded Warrior Foundation or Dunnellon Fire Rescue.

River views Apparently you can drink vegetables, too whats your emergency I dont do well with bruises, cuts or blood, especially when it involves my grandchildren. What started as a nice evening with my grandson, James, turned into a nightmare. But I have a whole new appreciation for the 911 operators. It was last Thursday when my daughter and son-in-law decided to head down to Clearwater to check out a boat and they invited my husband to ride along. Nanaw was looking forward to having dinner and some fun with James. James is a very finicky eater. I think he survived his first four years on grilled cheese and fish sticks. So I decided to get creative and make scrambled eggs with cheese and bacon. How excited I was to see him eating with such gusto. We were sitting side-by-side at the kitchen bar chatting about SpongeBob, who else? I thought the night was going quite well. Next thing I know, James said: I cant move my arm. I jumped down off my seat to discover he had somehow gotten his arm caught in the rungs of the bar stool. Yep, caught in that 1-inch space, and it was stuck all the way in so he couldnt move at all. I was trying to calm him down while trying to calm myself down but neither was working. After assessing the full situation and realizing there was no way I was going to slide his arm out, I had to put my thinking cap on. I left his side for one minute to find the phone and then he did the worst thing possible. He tried to jump down, and his arm did not move. So there he hung with his arm still caught and pulling tighter. Thats when the tears started for both of us. After getting him back on the stool and calmed down a bit, I called my neighbor Dave Matthews who has come to my rescue several times before. Unfortunately he wasnt home, but his 13-year-old son Tyler came running right over. Tyler had the great idea of using oil and butter to try to slide James out so while I poured, Tyler pulled. But alas, the arm did not budge. I even tried prying the bars apart with my hands. Really? I mean really? Then the wailing got really loud. Mine, not Jamess. His eyes were watering, his lips were quivering and he was trying really hard to be brave as his arm was turning red. I called my friend Brett Holt who lives about a mile away. He wasnt home either. Frantically, I ran through names in my head. Who should I call? How about 911? Wasnt that what it was for and this certainly was an emergency. So I tried to stop my hands from shaking as I dialed the number and when I heard, whats your emergency, I felt so much better. I hurriedly explained to the male operator that my grandson was pinned to the chair and we couldnt budge him. I told him to please send somebody as soon as possible, which he certainly did. As he tried to calm me down and stressed to me not to move James at all until help arrived, he was already calling the local unit and dispensing them to my home address.

Our new online Social Security Statement is simple, easy-to-use and provides people with estimates they can use to plan for their retirement, said Michael J. Astrue, Commissioner of Social Security. The online Statement also provides estimates for disability and survivors benefits, making the Statement an important financial planning tool. People should get in the habit of checking their online Statement each year, around their birthday, for example. In addition to helping with financial planning, the online Statement also provides workers a convenient way to determine whether their earnings are accurately posted to their Social Security records. This feature is important because Social Security benefits are based on average earnings over a persons lifetime. If the information is incorrect, the person may not receive proper benefits. The online Statement provides you the opportunity to save or print the document for future reference, or to have handy for discussions with family members or a financial planner. According to the American Customer Satisfaction Index, users are giving the online Statement a score of 89, making it competitive with our other top-rated, best-in-government online services, such as the Retirement Estimator and online retirement application. To get a personalized online Statement, you must be age 18 or older and must be able to provide information about yourself that matches information already on file with Social Security.

Get your SS statement online R ecently, a very good friend of mine invited me to a juicing seminar. No, not the kind in which someone jabs a needle in my keester and I spend countless hours staring in the mirror, lifting weights and admiring my six-pack abs and rock hard pectoral muscles. Needless to say, I decided to experience something new. What was the worst that could happen? A vegan zombie apocalypse? So off I went, not sure what to expect, but at least coming away with some great fodder for a column. Mission accomplished. As I was sitting in the room, waiting for the seminar to start, I gazed at the table packed with vegetables as far as the eye could see. If all of that green spread out on the table was Benjamins ($100 bills for those unfamiliar with the terminology), I would have jumped from my seat and snatched the cash and made a run for the door. No, these greens are apparently the type that one would eat in a salad. Im familiar with salads; theyre not often seen on my dinner table, let alone on my plate. So I patiently waited, hoping I wouldnt stick out like a sore thumb. Problem is, I did stick out like a thumb, not even a green one at that. Perhaps it was the deer in headlight look that gave me away. Have you ever juiced before? I was quizzed. Naturally, I wanted to respond with something witty. OK, more like sarcastic, but being the lone meat-eating, gunning-down-Bambi man in the room, I opted for a more straightforward response. No maam, I offered. She must have seen me squirm. Do you like vegetables? she asked, sizing me up. Now, my mother always encouraged us to clean our plates as children. Try everything, shed remind us. The problem, or the solution, was my father. If he didnt stick it on his plate and down the gullet, he wasnt going to bother. Vegetables, Ive heard of them. Its a side dish, right? Checking the sarcasm at the door, I was courteous. Um, Im not much of a vegetable eater maam, I said in all honesty. I was dead in her sights. So what do you eat? she asked. Im a meat and potatoes kinda guy, I said, noting I had my fathers DNA. He had his fathers DNA, etc., so on and so forth. Now, apparently the Force just wasnt with me. Perhaps I never had it to begin with but have you ever gotten the feeling you just painted a target right in the middle of your back? Oh, she said, her lip curling like the Grinch when he concocted his idea to portray Santa Claus and ruin Christmas for the Whos in Whoville. Now, at this point, my nerves kicked in. Trying vegetables had now become the least of my concerns. There was a meat eater in their midst. First, the wonderful instructor introduced herself and explained the benefits of juicing and the positives of organic vegetables. Then she lined me up in her sights, and mowed me down. Meat is horrible. OK, maybe she did not say it like that, but she started trashing steak. You know folks, steak, that great delicacy that comes from a cow. Hailing from the Midwest, I considered them fighting words. But I urged the temptation to shout I love steak. Jeff Bryan See OTHER GUY page 7 Audrey Beem See JERSEY GIRL page 7 Michael Grochowski Congressman needs to understand situation betterRe: Article about Rep. Stearns in the June 21, 2012, edition of the Riverland News. This letter was sent to Rep. Stearns and the letter writer asked that it be printed in its entirety.Rep. Stearns, I read in our local newspaper that you visited Dunnellon to talk with business owners, local officials and constituents. Its unfortunate that you didnt take the time to also visit with your constituents just north of Dunnellon in Rainbow Springs. The population of Dunnellon is about 1,800 and only about 1,500 of them are over the age of 18. I dont know what their voting record is, but I would venture to say its less than 50 percent. On the other hand, Rainbow Springs is about 2,500 residents and 99 percent are voting age. As a retirement community of former career military, retired airline pilots, judges and senior corporate managers, we are very concerned about government, and we vote. It was interesting to note that Dunnellon city officials touted their fiber to the home project. Did they mention that they were deep in debt, over a year behind schedule and had missed the first loan payment on the project? Did they mention that close to 2,000 residents in Rainbow Springs have signed a pledge to boycott the fiber project to protest Dunnellons water rates? It now looks like they want you to find federal grant money to bail them out. You campaign as a conservative. I was under the impression that conservatives want to stop government handouts to loser projects like Dunnellon Greenlight. Dunnellon has embarked on a series of projects with one purpose find revenue to get them out of debt. Can you imagine a city of 1,800 being $20 million in debt? The residents of Rainbow Springs have been at odds with Dunnellon officials since December 2011. Maybe a little background information would be appropriate. On Dec. 28, 2011, the Dunnellon City Council held a public hearing concerning a resolution to purchase the water utility serving Rainbow Springs. As part of the acquisition, the city raised the water rates, instituted a tiered rate structure and added a 25 percent surcharge on top of the increases. The public hearing was a thing of beauty. Hundreds of Rainbow Springs residents tried to attend, but the mayor ordered police to close the doors because of limited seating in the facility. These people were, in effect, barred from attending a public hearing. During the hearing, when the mayor was asked why the city was applying a 25 percent surcharge, his response was because we can. Following the acquisition, water rates in Rainbow Springs have forced hundreds of residents to install irrigation wells. There are instances where individual water bills have gone from $70 to $100 to over $600. These are retired people living on a fixed income. City officials have refused to discuss the water rate issue with residents of Rainbow Springs. As a result, a significant number of Rainbow Springs residents have been boycotting the citys fiber project (Greenlight). Some residents have taken things one step further and are boycotting all Dunnellon businesses. Its interesting that Dunnellons mayor mentioned annexation during the meeting. City officials may not want to annex Rainbow Springs, but they sure do want as much money from us as possible in the form of outrageous water rates. I think the mayors comments tell it all: They suck the services out of our city. We dont want to annex a bunch of rooftops. So now the residents of Rainbow Springs are nothing more than a bunch of rooftops. Such a comment shows again the arrogant and demeaning nature of the mayor and city officials. The mayor and city manager do have a dream, but its not to create jobs. Their dream is to maintain their small town charm. Problem is they dont have the necessary revenue. They want everyone else to pay for their own inability to sustain themselves. They want banks to loan them money they cant repay. They want people outside the city limits to pay in the form of high water rates. They want the state and other agencies to give them grants. Now they want the federal government to give them money. They actually have the nerve to ask for federal tax dollars to save their charming little town. Maybe someone should take a hard look at this charm. Did you take the time to walk around and see how many businesses are boarded up? Did you look at the condition of the properties in the downtown area? As one of your constituents, I am against using any type of federal tax dollars to support the Dunnellon Greenlight project or any other project the city decides to undertake. Your brochure states: Cliff Stearns was elected because he is conservative and we should re-elect him because hes never wavered. It goes on to state, Cliff Stearns is a proven and consistent conservative. If thats true, why are you looking into the possibility of getting stimulus money for Dunnellon? It would be a complete waste of taxpayer money. There are a few hundred voting residents in Rainbow Springs watching how you handle this. If you are going to support the financial blunders of the Dunnellon city officials, you certainly are not going to get my support. Hugh Lochrane Rainbow Springs See LETTERS page 12

Using its big hitters and some splendid pitching, Dunnellon proved too much for Central Citrus as it cruised to a 14-2 victory. We rely on pitching and defense, Dunnellon head coach Mike Michaud said. We had one rough inning there where we gave up a couple of runs, but the kids came back. Dunnellon batted first and immediately let its intentions be known by scoring the first run off Richie Foxs double. Fox had a huge game for Dunnellon, going 4 for 4 (two doubles and a single) with a two-run homer in the third, including a game-leading six RBIs. Central Citrus demonstrated some real poise at bat in the first inning. Dylan Pollizi (3 for 3 with two singles and double, one RBI) connected as well as teammate Daniel Sayadoff. But Dunnellons Kayme Hickey, who pitched almost five full innings with seven strikeouts, allowed no runs. Brandon Di Rosa, who pitched three innings, and a confident Central Citrus managed to shut out Dunnellon in the top of the second to further the impression of poise. Central Citrus then took the lead in the bottom of the inning, as Pollizi doubled, batting in Donovan Willmon (1for-2 with a double). Pollizi then capitalized on an error and stole home, giving Central Citrus the 2-1 lead. Then in the third inning, Dunnellons Fox struck a devastating blow to Central Citrus. Fox smacked a homer over the left field fence following Jay Fraziars double, which brought home the tying run. As Fraziars (4-for-4 with two singles, two doubles and four RBIs) and Fox crossed the plate to give Dunnellon the 4-2 lead, the wind appeared to go out of Central Citrus sails. We played our worst game in the field of the whole tournament, Central Citrus head coach Dan Sayadoff said of the loss. We just got outmatched today. Theyre a great team and they deserve to win. They completely outplayed us in all phases. We made too many errors. Dunnellon never looked back, outhitting Central Citrus 15-6. Dunnellon smoothly added more runs every inning to win the game 14-2 for the championship. Our goal is to get our top few guys on base who can really run. (And they) came through (for us) with Fox and Fraziars (hitting big) and then (we) settled back to rely on our pitchers. Michaud said. JUNIOR BASEBALLDunnellon 13, Shady Hills 5 Clinton Lee hit well for Dunnellon with two doubles and two singles. Matthew Livermore chased down some big outs in centerfield while Garret Kudlack pitched three solid innings for Dunnellon followed by Justin Hamm. Shady Hills Devyn Cabral knocked in a run-off a single, helping the team stage a rally early in the game. Dunnellon 29 C en tr al C i tr us 2 On Saturday, Matthew Livermores solo homer was a key play in Dunnellons blowout victory over Central Citrus. Derrick Kudlack pitched well as did Jared and Justin Hamm. Overall, Dunnellon performed well up and down their roster as Central Citrus struggled offensively and defensively. 10-11 BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS Inve r ness 10, Dunnellon 5 Some standouts for Inverness included Evan Badger, 3-for-4 with two doubles and a single); clutch hitters Gavin Shepherd (two RBIs) and Elijah Lindall; and Noah Cino, who pitched a full game with eight strikeouts. Vinny Muzzuppa came away with a great catch in the top of the sixth from out in right field. Inverness dedicated its championship season to the late Dr. Shawn Kersh. Dunnellon standouts included Mark Cranfield, 2-for-3 with a double and a single, three RBIs; and Trace Corne with a fantastic catch in left field. Starting pitcher Timothy Greaves and relief pitcher Conner Neil also performed well. Dunnellon 1 8 Cr ys t al R ive r 0 On Saturday, Patrick St. Jean had another great night for Dunnellon, pitching three scoreless innings. Matthew Kleckner turned a huge double play in the first inning while the bases were loaded, then closed the game with three strikeouts in the final inning. Mark Cranfield hit a three run double in the fourth. MAJOR BASEBALLDunnellon 7, G r ea t e r Hudson 2 Standouts in Dunnellons victory included Steven Penn, two-run homer; Matthew Webb, double with two RBIs; and Trevor Vonseggern, who closed the game by keeping Greater Hudson from staging any comebacks. Teams win title games in routs JAMES BLEVINS For the Riverland News 9-10 Softball South Sumter 5, Dunnellon 2 Pitcher Haley Kadur struck out 14, leading South Sumter to this victory. Kadur also had two hits, a double and an RBI. For South Sumter, Tanner Sponaugle had two hits and two runs and Haley Dixon had two hits and scored a run. Dunnellon played at 6:30 Monday night against Inverness at Bicentenail Field. Due to holiday deadlines, results of the game were not available at press time. Dunnellon 16, CR 6 On Saturday, Dunnellon took advantage of 10 walks and nine hits to take this one. Dunnellon took an 8-5 lead in the second inning and never trailed after that.

Crystal River had five hits and three errors. Crystal River scored five runs in the first inning on seven walks. MAJOR SOFTBALL POOL A Dunnellon 9, Shady Hills 8 Taylor Turner singled in the winning run, while Breanna Bergeron was the winning pitcher for Dunnellon, which finished second in the pool, ending its season. Inverness 11, Dunnellon 1 On Wednesday, June 27, Inverness worked Dunnellon for 10 walks and pitcher Jessica Newberry held Dunnellon for the victory. Brianne Bergeron took the pitching defeat for Dunnellon. SENIOR SOFTBALL South Sumter 9, Dunnellon 8 Lily Vela went for 4for-4 with a double and scored on a fielders choice as South Sumter won the Senior Softball classification with a 9-8 win over Dunnellon. South Sumter third baseman Jasmin Hudson made a key unassisted double play to help kill off a possible Dunnellon rally. South Sumter pitcher Paige McKinney won the game. Dunnellon reliever Angie DeGennaro took the pitching loss. Dunnellons Shay Huggins had two hits and two runs while Caroline Gill had two hits and an RBI. Dunnellon had nine hits. It was the second loss to South Sumter for Dunnellon, which fell 74 on Wednesday, June. 27. Dunnellon earned a shot in the title game with a resounding 16-6 Saturday against Shady Hills.

So the lady proceeded to concoct a juice made from apples, lemons and vegetables that closely resembled carrots and celery. Ive generally only seen them when served with an order of piping hot chicken wings. She threw in something called ginger, but it didnt look anything like the character from Gilligans Island. The samples of the fruity/vegetable medley were served in paper shot glasses, minus the liquor which caused some mild concern. Cheers, I heard. The nearest trash can was 10 feet away; making it seem a mile away at this point in time. Is there a spittoon nearby? I asked someone. So I took a sip, bracing for the worst possible outcome. It wasnt too bad. I finished the sample and before I knew it had a refill. I killed it off too. Then, they started pulling out green leafy substances. They called it spinach, kale and parsley. They threw in dandelion leaves, too. Who knew such an obnoxious weed could be healthy for you? It always made me sneeze, youd have thought I could play the role of Sneezy. (Yes, I could play the role of Dopey and Grumpy on specific days, too.) Someone asked where you could find dandelion leaves, I suggested the front yard, ever so quietly, when someone else chimed in with the same response. By the time they were done making the smoothie I realized this wasnt a smoothie I was used to grabbing in the drivethrough at McDonalds when I order a Big Mac. This substance was green, like nothing I have ever voluntarily put into my body. I was concerned my stomach would beat me, cry for meat. They called it the Green Goddess, and there certainly wasnt a heavenly appearance to it. I was concerned I would be praying to the porcelain god after sampling it. I knocked it back like a shot of bottom shelf whiskey. I think I had the face to prove it. From there, the nights hostesses provided a heaping sample of a delightful fruit smoothie, which I could grow accustomed to. The evening was capped with a soup, another vegetable medley I passed on. Now I can say Ive juiced, but I wont have to worry about a breakout in acne, a hormonal imbalance or the other side effects. I just hope you wont catch me grazing on the grass and flowers at Ernie Mills Park. Riverland News, Thursday, July 5, 2012 7 JOINT PAIN? 000BVQ8 2155 W.

Ive never been so happy to see anyone in my life. Two minutes and a broken chair later and my grandson was free. The trained paramedics checked him out to make sure nothing was broken and that he didnt need medical treatment. Unfortunately, James was too upset by everything that had happened to even appreciate the fact that the blazing fire trucks were there for him. I couldnt even convince him to go outside and check out the inside of the truck. All he wanted to do was call his mommy and daddy and tell them what had happened. Yes, now we could call Mommy and tell her everything was OK. So except for a swollen, purple arm for a week or so, this story had a happy ending. After he took a long bath to get the oil off, he ended up beating me in a game of Clue and eventually we both calmed down. Beware of chairs with rungs and active, little boys with tiny arms. They dont go well together.

Dunnellon Garden Club selects new officersNew officers of the Dunnellon Garden Club were installed at the May 17 meeting. The officers are: Myrna Weyant, first vice president; Sarah Rubish, second vice president; Suzanne Eno, recording secretary; Sandy Robinson, corresponding secretary; Penny Fyrogennis, treasurer; and Deanna Rogers, assistant treasurer. The Dunnellon Garden Club will resume its meetings and activities Sept. 20. Family appreciates police departmentI live in Indian Cove and while my grandchildren and great-grandchildren were visiting we took my golf cart for a short ride, left it with keys in it for a 15-minute walk through the trail. When we got back, it was gone. After checking all over the area ourselves, we reported the incident immediately and the Dunnellon Police Department was on it immediately. I just cant believe how dedicated our police department is. They found it two days later and I do so appreciate it and want you all to know how honored we are to have such a capable and dedicated police department. The officer in charge was Carolina Rolfes and I want to thank her also. Thelma Scott Dunnellon City officials just wasting more moneyIn reading the agendas for the Dunnellon City Council Workshop on June 20 and June 25, two items caught my eye. First, why is the City spending $88,000 for fiber and conduit runs in The Woodlands of Rainbow Springs? It also mentions Rainbows End as being included in the Rainbow Springs project, but Rainbow Ends is not part of Rainbow Springs. So the city is going to waste more money in areas where there is probably very little possibility of anyone signing up for Greenlight? Second, Ms. Lisa Algiere is likewise requesting $22,649 for the purchase of a 2011 Chevy Pickup for the Rainbow Springs crew leader. Just what are the responsibilities of this crew leader and what are they doing to cost the city an average of $600 a month? Considering the new 2013 models of vehicles will soon be appearing in the dealerships isnt this an excessive amount to be spending for this vehicle? Is this how the rooftops of Rainbow Springs are sucking the services out of the city?Joan K. Duggins Rainbow Springs prep pitcher during her decorated career at Dunnellon High, shes been working on her skills in the circle with hopes to pitch for the Lady Razorbacks. When she made the jump to the collegiate ranks, she opted to give up pitching in favor of focusing on a career at third base. She spent her sophomore season playing outfield for the Lady Gators. Kasey hit .261 this past season, with two home runs and 46 RBIs. Its going to take awhile to get back up to the level I was at, Kasey said about her pitching skills. Im already throwing harder because Im stronger, but well see how it goes. If the coaches think Im good enough, well see what happens. I need to boost my confidence up as a player and this year off I plan on working on that. Sami believes the year off will be a blessing. I believe it will benefit me as a player, said Sami, who hit .378 in her one and only season for the Lady Gators. She tied for the team lead in hits with 71 and finished second in runs scored with 49. She also led Florida with five triples this past season in which she was named the SEC Freshmen of the Week twice. Sami decided to wear the stripes once more as she will make her journey to Missouri, which will make its debut as a member of the SEC this fall after the Tigers bolted the Big 12, along with Texas A&M, this past year. They are good at softball, and they have a solid coaching staff. I felt like it was the place for me to be, Sami said about the Lady Tigers, who were consistently ranked in the top 25 this past season including a stint in the top 10. The switch in schools isnt the only change the girls will face. Despite the one season of prep ball they werent on the same team, this will be the first time they will ever compete against each other. A fact not lost on Sami, who despite on season at the prep level, has never played without Kasey. This will be the first time the oldest two siblings will compete against each other. Playing without Kasey will be different, since weve played together our whole lives, Sami said. Im just lucky I will only have to play against her for two years. She is a great player and will get even better at Arkansas. 12 Riverland News, Thursday, July 5, 2012 000BWSY 1 1 3 7 1 N W i l l i a m s S t 1 1 3 7 1 N W i l l i a m s S t 11371 N.
