SERVINGDUNNELLONANDRAINBOWSPRINGS Thursday, July 19, 2012Vol 30 No. 39 75 cents Bieber charged with aggravated battery A 46-year-old man, involved in a stabbing at Crocks Pub in December 2011, once again found himself in trouble with law enforcement officials Sunday after biting a man in the cheek and biting part of his ear off. According to reports, Walter Bieber of Dunnellon was charged Sunday with aggravated battery after he become involved in a verbal altercation with another person. The report stated Bieber intentionally or knowing caused great bodily harm or permanent disfigurement while committing battery upon Charles Olson. The report stated Bieber attacked Olson following a verbal argument and while commencing the attack, Bieber bit Olson on the left cheek and then bit his left ear, detaching a large portion of Olsons ear and then spitting it on the floor. Olson was taken Munroe Regional Medical Center for treatment to his cheek and ear. Bieber was transported to the Marion County Jail. Bieber made bail later Sunday; his bond had been set at $5,000. In December 2011, Bieber was involved in a verbal disagreement at Crocks Pub, which turned into a physical confrontation. During that fight, three people were stabbed, none by Bieber. However, Bieber was charged with disorderly intoxication and aggravated assault. Dunnellon man, 19, involved in robbery Man bites ear off of another in fight Suspects shot during holdup OCALA A customer at Palms Internet Caf at 8444 S.W. State Road 200 thwarted a robbery attempt by two 19-yearold men Friday night at the Internet Caf in Ocala. According to police reports, Davis G. Dawkins of Dunnellon and Duwayne B. Henderson of Ocala entered the businesses shortly before 10 p.m. The report stated the two entered wearing masks while one of them, later identified as Dawkins, was in possession of a baseball bat, and the other, Henderson, was brandishing a black firearm. Upon entering the establishment, the report stated, the suspect with the firearm told patrons to turn over their valuables. One of the customers, Samuel Williams, approached Henderson and began shooting at him and Dawkins. Both Dawkins and Henderson fled the scene as Williams continued firing at them, the report stated. After fleeing the establishment, Williams locked the door as authorities were called. According to the report, once on scene, enforcement authorities observed blood, which appeared to be from one of the suspects who was believed to have been shot. Williams told authorities he was at the Internet Caf with his wife Request bogs down in red tape The city of Dunnellon late Tuesday provided the registered number of customers with Greenlight Dunnellon Communications, its fiber to the home program. The request was filled two days after a lawyer with the Florida First Amendment Foundation contacted Marsha Segal-George, the assistant city attorney, to notify the city they were in breach of the states public records law. Johnathan D. Kaney Jr., an attorney with the Florida First Amendment Foundation wrote in a letter to Segal-George. Segal-George, who works for the Orlando-based firm of Fowler, OQuinn, Feeney & Sneed, that the city twice denied records requests submitted by the Riverland News to the city seeking information about who has registered for services with Greenlight Communications Dunnellon as well as the types of services they are using. The city denied these requests, and the City Manager provided Mr. Bryan with a copy or your memorandum dated June 29, wrote Kaney Jr., who works for the private, nonprofit, non-partisan, organization, dedicated to promoting the public's constitutional right to oversee its government through Floridas Sunshine and Public Records Law. Acting as the public's advocate, the Foundation provides a variety of services to citizens, govCity relents, provides data for number of Greenlight subscribers JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Stark: A family man Photos by JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsJuliette Stark, center, buries her head in a picture of her late husband, Frederick Fred C. Stark, Thursday during a Celebration of Life service at the Florida State Fire College in Ocala. Her daughter, Suzette Altman, consoles her mother during the service while her son, Christopher, looks on. Career fireman, father honored at Celebration of Life OCALAF rederick Fred C. Starkey Stark was known for his passion about firefighting and the industry itself. It was more widely known his burning passion was for his family, especially for his wife, Juliette, whom he had been married to for 58 years. Stark died July 2 at Timberridege Medical Center after his wife found him outside their Vogt Springs home. On Thursday, family, friends, former colleagues and current colleagues gathered at the Florida State Fire College to honor the three-term Dunnellon City Councilman who worked at the Florida State Fire College from 1978 to 1993, the last 11 as Bureau Chief of Fire Standards and Training. Prior to working at the sprawling campus, north of Ocala, Stark worked as a firefighter with the NYPD from 1958 to 1973. The Staten Islandnative served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1954 to 1957. Chief Rick Talbert spoke on behalf of the family to the packed room. While I believe that as his son and oldest surviving child, that duty should fall to me, Christopher Stark wrote on the Facebook page the Celebration of Life for Frederick C. Stark. I know it would be an exercise in futility for me to attempt to get up in front of those in attendance and try to pay tribute to my dad in a manner he would approve of. Translation: I do not wish to cry in front of that many witnesses. He would not have it. As Talbert spoke, he touched upon Starks storied career with the NYFD and the mark he made on those whod passed through the doors at the Florida State Fire College. Its been a tough year for us here, we lost another brother, Talbert said, noting two former FSFC instructors Charlie Dill and John James had also died this year. Im very humbled to share a few words with you. I didnt feel worthy and privileged to speak. He left an Walter Bieber Davis G. Dawkins 19-year-old from Dunnellon.

Conde pointed to the success the Marion Oaks community has recently had with its Jammin in the Park monthly event. She said it draws a large crowd.

WE MATCH COMPETITOR PRICES On RX Drugs Appeals court to rule on road assessments The long-drawn out battle between residents in Rainbow Springs and Marion County government over an assessment regarding repaving of road could come to a dead end today, depending on how appellate court judges rule. We are asking them to reverse the ruling that the reassessments are illegal, said attorney Richard Bennett, hired to represent the residents of Country Club Estates in Rainbow Springs. Depending on what the outcome is, depends on what we do next. I think the percentages on appeals the ruling of the trial court generally stands. Statistically, you dont fare well, but I believe our facts in this case are unique and we have a chance of prevailing. A hearing is scheduled for today as judges will make the final ruling about the reassessment Marion County officials levied against homeowners years ago regarding repaving in the Villages of Rainbow Springs. In 2006, residents Patricia and Michael Slattery, Louis Benza and Donald Senger formed a committee opposing the road work assessment and question the ballot process. That group became known as F.A.R.E., standing for Fund All Roads Equitably. Howwever, Deborah Techentin, Joan and Edward Duggans and Penny and Ioannes Fyrogennis filed suit on behalf of the residents of the Villages of Rainbow Springs. It hinged on the issue of whether a clear majority of affected landowners has actually voted to approve the project back in late 2005. The county thought it had the necessary ballots to go ahead, but some residents disagreed. They argued that under Florida law, 51 percent of all the landowners had to approve the assessment, but the county went ahead with approval from only about one-third of the landowners. According to Florida laws, 51 percent of all landowners must approve the assessment. The county created the MSBU with the approval of only about onethird of them, Bennett argued in court. The group eventually hired the Coral Gables-based Bennett, who had prior experience with a similar case. Court records show legal action against the county started in June 2007. Since the roughly $900 assessment started, residents had the option of making payments over 10 years at about $132 a year, or paying up in full, saving the interest. But the money is just part of the problem. The court will decide today if the county must refund the assessment its been charging or residents will remain on the hook for the cost to pave the road. How that will be affected is unclear, and with the road work already been done, it is uncertain where the county would get the money to refund the homeowners if necessary. Suit stems from 2006 when Rainbow Springs residents fought county about roads JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Post 58 members visit veterans at Hampton Manor West Special to the Riverland NewsAmerican Legion Post 58 members Bernard James, Eugene Thomas, Bob Anderson, Peg Furst and Marilyn Boemi visited the veterans July 3 at Hampton Manor West and presented them with a cake.

and was afraid the suspects were going to shoot somebody. He told the detective he and his wife were scared (expletive) and he began shooting at the men. He told officials he could not remember how many shots he fired. Shortly after the incident at the Internet Caf, law enforcement authorities received information that two subjects were being transported from Marion Oaks to a hospital with gunshot injuries after telling residents they had been shot while at Scott Carrigan Baseball Park on Southeast 17th Street in Ocala. Officers, the report stated, went to the ball field but found no evidence of a shooting there. Both men were transported to Shands Hospital in Gainesville. Officials later confirmed Dawkins had a superficial wound in his left arm, but Henderson was shot in two places: his left buttock and his right hip. In an interview at the hospital, Dawkins admitted to Detective Erik Dice he took part in the robbery, according to the report. The young man said he had the bat, which had been in his vehicle. Dawkins told the detective he was confronted by two people at the ball field and forced to assist in the robbery. Officials said Dawkins previously had worked for the cafe but had been fired. Henderson, in his interview with authorities, said both he and Dawkins planned the robbery together, the report stated. Dawkins bond was set at $11,000. He bonded out Sunday of the Marion County Jail. Hendersons bond was set at $31,000. He remains in the Marion County Jail. An 18-year-old Ocala man and four teenage juveniles were charged with burglary and petit theft July 9, after authorities revealed they had broken into the Dunnellon Little League concession stand. According to the arrest report, Nikolai Pierro and four other teens, whose names are being withheld because of their age, broke into the concession stand of the Dunnellon Little League, which was closed. The report stated the five defendants took miscellaneous food and drink items such as Gatorade, candy as potato chips, totaling up to $100. Pierro told authorities he and the other four defendants threw the items out of the broken window in which one of the other defendants had broke to gain entrance into the concession stand, the report stated. According to the report, the stolen items were placed into two of the defendants vehicles before the five left the park. All of the items were recovered, the report stated. Pierros bond was set at $2,250. He bonded out July 9 of the Marion County Jail. Man charged with simple batteryA 21-year-old Inglis man was charged with Simple Battery (Dating Violence), according to arrest reports. William G. Degennaro was charged July 10, a report states, after he and his girlfriend of seven months were involved in an altercation at the Dunnellon Wal-Mart. According to the report, Degennaro admitted to grabbing the victim by the arm and trying to pull her out of the store, saying babe, lets just go home, at which time the victim pulled away and yelled, leave me alone or Ill call the police. Degennaro then grabbed the victim by the hair pulling her to the ground. The report stated the victim got up, pushed Degennaro away and ran out of the store. According to the report, two eyewitnesses told authorities they observed Degennaro grab the victim by the arm and push her down after the victim told Degennaro to leave her alone. Both Degennaro and the victim told police they had been dating for about seven months and were still currently in a relationship. No bond was set. Degennaro was released July 12 from the Marion County Jail. Man charged with trespassing A 52-year-old Dunnellon man was charged with trespassing (after warning), according to police reports. Joseph M. Borst was charged July 12, an arrest report states, after knowingly and unlawfully entering the property at the Dunnellon Circle K after being issued a trespass warning in April 2012. According to the report, law enforcement officials witnessed Borst standing in the parking lot of Circle K. Upon seeing a patrol vehicle, Borst ran toward the sidewalk and began stating, I was on the sidewalk. The report stated upon making contact with Borst, police detected a strong odor of alcoholic beverages emanating from Borsts breath and body. Borst told authorities he knew we was not supposed to be on Circle K property. Officer Mike Miley made contact with the store clerk who provided a copy of the trespass warning issued in April. Per the warning, Borst is not allowed at the location for one year. The clerk said she observed Borst yelling at customers in the parking lot and causing problems prior to Mileys arrival. Borsts bond was set at $10,000. As of press deadline Tuesday, he remained in the Marion County Jail.

River views Leave the fighting to the troops, not the politiciansI am writing this letter as a concerned daughter, niece, Michigan resident and, basically, U.S. Citizen. I travel the world for business and have seen plenty in my life time. Now I am very miffed by the treatment the residents of Rainbow Springs are enduring by the city of Dunnellon. We all look forward to our golden years. We work hard so we can enjoy retirement, as did many of the Rainbow Springs residents. This once quaint sleepy village had much to offer to the average Joe who wanted to enjoy their golden years in rest and relaxation. Whether it is golfing, walking the trails, relaxing by the river or shopping and dining out, the town of Dunnellon was a superior choice for my relatives. As in our cyclical economy, the recession hit and we went to war. In hard times we just learn to scale back. Living in Michigan, believe me, we had to readjust our lives. But I am disturbed by what I am seeing taking place in Dunnellon. First, if was the cameras placed at certain intersections to generate income for the city. Then it was the purchase of the water plant with an increase price of water used by residents. And now the assessment of road repairs, when does it end? The residents of Rainbow Springs are mostly too old to send to Afghanistan, so lets start our own war right in their back yard. Well to the elected officials of Dunnellon, you should be ashamed of yourselves. You have caused anxiety, high blood pressure and even heart problems, along with other stress related issues. Is this how you want to be treated in your golden years? Better yet, is this how you want your parents to be treated? As I understand it, houses are going up for sale in record numbers. Those that are not selling are putting in new wells, and with all the turmoil come increased doctors visits and more medications. Well, I only see one winner and its not the residents or the city. Leave the fighting to the Armed Forces and restore the quaint village that attracted these residents to begin with. Respectfully, Verda K. Hanrahan Pinckney, Mich. Congressmans visit to area was much appreciatedDear Congressman Stearns, Your visit to Rainbow Springs July 3 was most welcomed and appreciated. It provided the community the opportunity to meet with you personally and voice our discontentment What really defines classic? Oh yes, I did! I really should know better. Honestly, you would think at my age I would have learned enough lessons that I would be able to make better decisions. I am blaming it all on my brother Bill. OK, so he was in Alabama at the time, its still his fault. Yeah, thats it, its Bills fault. He and my sisterin-law, Molly, were coming to visit. All week I had been cleaning. You see, Molly used to run a high-end Bed & Breakfast in New York. It has been featured in several movies. It was always spotless when Molly ran the place. My sister, Maryellen, is a clean freak. Molly makes her look like a slob. She would never take out the white gloves, but I know she has an aversion to dirt. Besides having a sloppy house, I am also a terrible hostess. I dont enjoy being a hostess. Its stressful and I become a nervous wreck. I like living the hermit life in my little hovel. Ask any of my friends and they will tell you they have rarely ever stepped foot in my house. My family doesnt visit either. Diane, a friend of mine, said she doesnt want to come over because she is afraid she will find me half naked. Having read my past columns, you know there is a strong possibility I will be. If you have the courage or youve drawn the short straw and you end up staying at my house, you will get clean towels, a freshly made bed and absolutely nothing else! I dont cook, so there isnt any food in the house. I make very good reservations. I am one of those people who dont enjoy food. Its something I need to stay alive. Inhalation of my meals is not what I would call fun. Its a habit I got growing up in a large family. Dinner time was not enjoyable. With Vietnam being a sitting member at the dinner table, meals often ended in yelling matches between the peacenik twins and my dad, the Navy man. To this day, food is just another word for indigestion. The last time Bill and Molly visited, the house and me received a failing grade. I was not in the mood to clean. Cleaning is one of those things that I need to be in the mood to do. Both Molly and my sister have a tendency to clean before they leave. My brother and I used to fight over who got my sister when she visited because she always left the house cleaner than when she showed up. Now he gets my sister and I get Molly. Everybody wins! This time I vowed to do a better job. I cleaned for days. The floors were washed vacuumed and waxed. The guest bathroom was spotless. I made the guest bed. At that point, I didnt have much left to do. They werent arriving for another three days. Hey, I got an idea. I will break down and put food in my fridge! Now, what do normal people eat?

Were always celebrating somebodys birthday, or someones anniversary or sometimes just somebodys good news. Thats a good thing, of course, and Im truly grateful, but it can also become a bad thing when life gets crazy and expensive. I have two parents, two brothers, two daughters, two stepsons, two grandchildren and two nieces. Yet, with the amount of parties and get-togethers we have, you would think I spawned 15 children. I guess we just love to be together, eating, chatting and laughing. Its what we do best. Sometimes it can get overwhelming, especially when there is an important event that we cant miss both Saturday and Sunday. Then we have to go back to work Monday and it feels like we had no relaxing time at all. It also leaves no time to get a few things done around the house. But like I said, Im not complaining. For the past couple of years, all festivities have centered around my house as its the biggest and we have a pool. I love entertaining and Im getting pretty good at it actually. Ive learned two things. First, do as much as possible the night before. Second, try to relax and have fun. If all the food isnt done at the same time, you will survive. Its always a great idea if you have everybody bring a dish. This way, youre not doing it all by yourself. Besides other peoples food always seems to taste better when its a buffet. Of course having a husband that loves to grill helps, too. Were finding that can cook just about anything on these new gas grills. Still, sometimes when I hear a girl at work say: all I did all weekend was relax and read a book, I sometimes wish for those simpler days. Then again, I wouldnt trade what I have right now for anything, even if it does get crazy sometimes. I dont think well be slowing down anytime soon though. We have two huge events in July, a family vacation to Tennessee and my fathers 80th birthday party when we get back. Youll be hearing more about both of them. We had wanted to do another family vacation. The last time we all got together was a cruise for my parents 50th anniversary seven years ago. So it was definitely time to plan another one. My parents had a trip planned to the Tennessee Mountains anyway. Its one of my dads favorite places to be. In fact, he and my mother go at least once a year, sometimes twice. Then we Can we slow down now? W ith certainty, I have an eclectic mix of musical taste. I can blame that on my parents, daddy was a little more country and momma was rock n roll. Both products of the 1960s, they didnt listen to much of the acid rock, nor much of the tree hugging hippie tunes of the generation. Thats not to say I dont listen to it either. I drove my friends bonkers as a young teenager, being able to switch gears from the music of our era to that of the s and s to country/western and the likes of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and many others. I still do the same today, but admittedly, I consider most of what is being produced today is flat out terrible and stinks. I often lean more toward the classic rock though; the likes of Queen, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and, most importantly ladies and gentlemen, The Beatles. Frankly, I believe any of todays youths who have not been introduced to the sounds of the Fab Four are truly deprived. To me, thats classic rock. Apparently, though, a few local deejays dont agree with me. Honestly, they have me believing Im older than what my birth certificate indicates. A recent morning drive to work, the local classic rock station decided music I listened to in my midto-late-teen years is now classic rock. What the heck? What moron was selecting tunes that morning? The specific song you ask? Pearl Jams Alive. For those of you completely unfamiliar with the band, they were a part of the Seattle grunge rock movement in the early s. The movement set the tone, the groups of the era sang the anthems for Generation X. For those folks who are true Southerners, they made flannel shirts all the rage and the prices skyrocket. Of course with the advent of the Internet, I did multiple searches about how classic rock is defined. Several websites proved to be utterly useless, some websites stated grunge rock could be labeled classic. I disagree. Its not classic, not even close to classic, at least not yet. First of all, most s music is just now finding its way onto classic rock stations and thats a tough pill to swallow hearing the likes of Bon Jovi and Guns N Roses in the regular rotation. Music during my teenage adolescence? Id beg to differ. If local radio deejays keep up their antics, they will cause the few gray hairs I have to multiply. Garth Brooks said it best: Im much too young to feel this damn old. Kathleen Wallace Audrey Beem Jeff Bryan Editor See LETTERS page 5 See JERSEY page 5 See TIME page 5

meal. I will pick up some eggs and bacon. If I have breakfast covered I am halfway there. We usually go out for lunch or dinner. OK, here is where my brain gets fuzzy. I decided to buy pork chops and marinate them. I will impress Bill and Molly with my grilling abilities. The house came with an outdoor grill attached to the house. That has been the extent of my cooking for the past seven years. I grill steak or chops about three times a year. I picked up some barbecue sauce. I figured I would try this new sauce and if I liked it, I would marinate some chops for the day they arrive. That night, I put my chop on the grill. I had some time to kill, so I started my laundry. About seven minutes in I smelled something horrible. It was burnt rubber. Egads, what had I done? I looked out at the lanai and I couldnt see it! Gray smoke covered the whole area. I opened the sliding glass door and saw the grill on fire. Panicking is one of my strong points. I do it well. The curse words flew and my brain started going over a list. OK, stop, drop and roll. No, thats not it ... you do that if you are on fire. Water ... yeah, water puts out a fire. No, No, its electrical. Never use water. I remember my mom saying you use some kind of household product like flour or something. Gee, what was it. Oh heck, its not as if I would actually have what I need in the house if I could even remember what it was. 911! Yeah, thats it. Call 911. I ran back in the house and called 911. The operator wanted my address. Are you kidding me? You want me to remember where I live at a time like this! Calm down. Breathe deep. What? Now he wants my phone number. I give him my number from Ohio. I havent lived there in seven years. No, no, let me think. OK, I remember it. Now he wants me to describe the fire and where it is. Is it attached to the house? No. Wait, I mean yes! I had left a corner of the grill cover over the flame and the cover was on fire along with the cheap 30-year-old cabinet the grill is housed in. The flames are shooting higher. Black soot is covering the walls and it is beginning to choke me. Oh damn! I left the door to the house open and the house if filling up with the smell of burnt plastic. I close the door and it dawns on me. Throw the plastic cover into the pool. Then the debate in my brain starts. I just emptied my pool, fixed a big crack and was starting to refill the pool. The water was a gorgeous blue. Do I really want to put an ash filled burning cover in my spotless pool? Kathleen, sometimes you are an idiot. Let the house burn or dirty your pool? You really have to think about this, it should be a no brainer. But, but ... the water prices have gone up. No buts!!! I pick up the grill cover and chuck it in the pool. Afterward, I thought I could have burned my hand, so I should have worn an oven mitt. Live and learn. One fire out and three small ones to go. Thankfully, the firefighters showed up Marion County Ladder 22 to the rescue. I felt awful. It was 500 degrees, the humidity took your breath away and these poor folks are in full uniform. I was soaked standing there in my dress. I could not imagine wearing all that equipment in that heat. I would like to thank them for their help and for putting up my smoke detector that had been sitting on my dresser for the past six months. They could tell I was lying when I said it had only been there a few days. Really, I should know better that to cook! Bill and Molly, its PB&J for you. July 3 was most welcomed and appreciated. It provided the community the opportunity to meet with you personally and voice our discontentment with the malicious transgressions imposed upon us, the rooftops who suck the services out of the city, by the city of Dunnellon. Quite obviously, we are unanimous in our opinions and we seem to be singing from the same hymnal. As a unified group of concerned citizens, we do represent a substantial voting bloc who is, collectively, willing to support the candidate who best serves our interests. Hopefully, you are that candidate who refuses to be disillusioned by the outrageous statements attributed to the mayor and City Council. However, if you even remotely consider granting federal funds and/or stimulus monies to the city to further their squandering on their misguided financial blunders, you are not that trusted conservative who will represent our needs. Herein, a further reiteration or dissertation of the red-light entrapment and water/sewer exploitations will not be addressed. Your requested Burt Eno dossier is a rather comprehensive document that should fully acquaint you with these atrocities. Notably these are blatant attempts to extort monies from those rooftop suckers. Although you may have been understandably deceived by the misleading statements regarding Greenlight and city misdeeds, your assessment of Dunnellon is right on target. Agreeably, the city should be enshrined as a tourist mecca and emblematic of historic pride. Dilapidated buildings, storefronts in disarray, vacancies and an appearance of general neglect are more symbolic of a ghost town and not a thriving community. How can this city, in its present condition, promote business investments and provide job opportunities? Congressman Stearns, most of the populace of the neighboring community share your conservative views and agree with your vision for Dunnellon. Whenever you have completely reviewed our plight, Burts notes and other pertinent data, please plan to revisit or, in some form, communicate your assessments and recommendations. Although I can not speak for everyone, I personally was impressed with your charisma, sincerity, and straightforwardness. Thank you for your visit! Bill Pawliw Rainbow Springs found out my brother, Dominic, from Iowa was planning to meet them there and then come to Florida for a week. So we thought wouldnt it be great if we could all go? After all, vacations with the whole entire family are always the best. Needless to say, this took a little finagling, especially with me just starting a new job three months ago. But we worked it out and now its really going to happen. We rented one of those huge cabins that sleeps 12 people; split four ways it wasnt going to cost much, but then my wonderful father decided to pay the whole thing. Thank you, Dad! The suitcases are getting packed, food is being bought and everybody is excited. The last time I went to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge was more than 20 years ago, so Im very excited. Weve been to Nashville because my sister-in-law lives there, but we havent been to the mountains in quite some time. Im looking forward to Dollywood, monorail rides through the mountains, sight-seeing, and just being with the family. Have I mentioned were a loud family? Soon our voices will be echoing through the valleys. Tennessee, here we come.

R IVERLAND SPORTS 6 Riverland News, Thursday, July 19, 2012 9-10 boys second at sectional CLEARWATER The final game of the Section 7 Little League baseball tournament took place Sunday as Dunnellon pulled out its first win of the weekend, defeating the District 12 champions and host Countryside, 5-4, in extra innings. The win was good enough to earn Dunnellon the 9-10 sectional runner-up spot in the tournament, while Citrus Park claimed the top spot. The kids didnt give up, Dunnellon coach Mike Michaud said about the victory. We came back Sunday and the kids gave it their all. They had a lot of heart and were very proud of them. Pitcher Richie Fox started from the mound, giving Dunnellon four strong innings followed by Jimmy Weber, who closed out the game. Michael Rey singled in the tying run at the bottom of the sixth inning. With bases loaded and one out, Jaron Cortese sprinted home off a passed ball for the game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh after Weber held Countryside bats at bay in the top of the frame. Dale Michaud, who went 2-for-3 with two RBIs, and teammate Drew Leinenbach, who was 2-for3 with two doubles, both had clutch hits early in the game to aid Dunnellon in its win. Citrus Park 3, Dunnellon 1Citrus Park got out front early Saturday, staking itself to a 2-0 lead and holding Dunnellon at bay for the victory. Kayme Hickey pitched five innings for Dunnellon, helping stymie Citrus Parks offense. Hickey had 10 strikeouts in the game. Dale Michaud had two singles while teammate Jay Fraziars double knocked in Dunnellons lone run of the game in the sixth inning. Countryside 10, Dunnellon 0The opening Section 7 game for Dunnellon, the District 15 champs, did not fare well. District 5 champions Countryside shut out Dunnellon Friday in a game dominated by fine pitching. Jay Fraziars proved to be Dunnellons strongest performer in the game, earning his teams lone base hit. Jimmy Weber pitched for the first two innings followed by Fraziars. Richey Fox came in to close the game, pitching well for Dunnellon and limiting further damage.

I t is time for good old Uncle George to pay up. For years, at least as long as I can remember, he always eluded everything by saying, Ill do that when pigs fly. Or, Ill give you $100 for that when pigs fly. My favorite might be, Ill go to church when pigs fly. Well, Uncle George, it is time for you to pay up for all of those promises in the past. According to some airlines, pigs can fly. I am not sure I have all of the facts, but then again facts have little to do with most stories going around these days. All I know, certain airlines will allow you to carry on board your pet pig if it is important to you for your mental well-being. After all, only the pilots are allowed to be mentally off when it comes to flying. I must confess that my least favorite mode of transportation is flying. Now, according to some rumors flying around, I have more reasons not to like flying. I think the cost of flying his discouraged me from enjoying the flight. It seems terribly expensive to squeeze your body into the seat made for a person half your size so that you can pay double the price. It takes me about a half hour to get myself squeezed into a seat and manipulate the seatbelt to go all the way around me. By that time, I need to go to the restroom. Why I do not think of that before I sit down is one of those mysteries of nature that never will be solved. Another half hour to extricate myself from the seat and go and stand in line at the restroom for another half hour and then come back and squeeze myself back into the seat and again manipulate the seatbelts. By that time, I am totally exhausted. Another reason I am not too fond of flying has to do with the cuisine. When you mentioned airline food, the term cuisine does not readily come to mind. Whatever they serve on board has nothing whatsoever to resemble nutritious cuisine. I think some of these people who are going to begin taking their pigs on board might take this into consideration. If the food is as bad as it has been, somebody, like yours truly, might look at that pig with a certain cuisine activity in mind. I am not adverse to a nicely roasted pork for lunch. In fact, I am going to start taking apples with me when I fly just in case the occasion presents itself. I suppose the biggest reason I do not like flying has to do with the seats. Whoever designed airline seats never had an encounter with a real man. I believe they thought that the only people who would ever fly an airplane would be height-challenged people. Those who would not take up much space. Perhaps also they were thinking of people who were posteriorly challenged. Have you looked at people lately? There are very few posteriorly challenged people left in the world anymore. Perhaps they were thinking of those days when people had to work their butts off making a living. Now, no such activity is being exercised in our country. Now that pigs are going to be able to fly the friendly skies, whats next? I have endured all kinds of people during my years of flying. Now, not only do I have to share my seat with suffocating, boring, chatty people, but also I need to make room for pigs. Who was it that made this decision? Who was it that sat down and said, You know, I think it would be a good idea if we allowed pigs to fly on airplanes. It is obvious that the people who made this decision are not familiar with pigs. Perhaps they were thinking of Porky Pig. Now, there is a pig I would not mind traveling with in the friendly skies. The conversation would probably be better than some of the conversations I have had in similar situations. Of course, his stuttering might drive me crazy. Being a country boy, I know what a pig is. My grandfather used to raise pigs, so, I have been around pigs and know what they are like and, most importantly, how bad they smell. It is a well-known fact that the reason pigs have such large snouts is because they smell so bad. And they enjoy smelling bad. I can think of one reason why the airlines want to include pigs in the list of passengers. Most of them serve food only a pig would like. I know that being politically correct is a 8 Riverland News, Thursday, July 19, 2012 Pigs can fly, but not with me OUT TO PASTOR CHURCH EVENTS Clothe the Children drive Special to the Riverland NewsPat Morana, left, and Joan Gesek, of the Altar and Rosary Society of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Dunnellon, show off some of clothing that has been donated to the Clothe the Children drive.

mandate in our culture. I further know that criticizing stupidity in our culture is a huge no-no. In fact, to recognize such absurdity is a reflection upon your character. For anybody to think that a pig does not belong in a seat beside you as you fly the friendly skies is some kind of antediluvian moron. I think Solomon got it right when he said, And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow (Ecclesiastes 1:17-18 KJV). Uncle George, it is pay up time, Ill see you in church Sunday.Rev. James L.

United Way is looking for ReadingPals for the school year OCALA United Way of Marion County is looking to recruit 100 volunteers to be placed in local elementary schools this fall and be paired up with one child to work on literacy skills. The volunteer commitment consists of one hour, once a week for 25 weeks. Training and materials will be provided. This volunteer recruitment effort is in response to a grant that United Way of Marion County received from Carol and Barney Barnett. The grant is focused on engaging, training and deploying volunteer reading pals in 10 Florida regions to increase the number of students who are reading at grade level by the end of third grade. Working with local school districts, United Ways Womens Leadership Councils, Early Learning Coalitions, Childrens Services Councils and others, this initiative will focus on engaging students from prekindergarten to third grade. Local United Ways are tasked with partnering with their local school system, using a common state-wide preand post-assessment, tracking volunteer hours and providing books for children to take home. Implementation of the program is left to the discretion of each community. When schools improve, communities improve and sometimes kids just need someone who believes in them, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. United Way recognizes that everyone can contribute to a childs academic success. Volunteer training will be offered from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 2, at the Marion County Public Library Headquarters at 2720 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala. Volunteers will be placed when school begins in the fall. For more information, contact Jan Hathaway at 352-732-9696, ext. 212, or jhathaway@uwmc.org.

Here are some other super swaps you can do to make a big difference in how you eat: Breakfast: Instead of high-fat cheese, add a dollop of guacamole to eggs. Lunch: Skip the mayo and add guac to your ham or turkey sandwich. Snack: Dip carrots or other veggies in salsa to keep you going until dinner. Dinner: Lose the high-fat dressing and sauces and try spicy guac on burgers, chicken, fish and, of course, tacos. Find more recipes to help you make the swap at www.eatwholly.com. Grilled Chicken FettucciniYield: 4 servings 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1 tablespoon ground cumin 3 chicken breasts 1/2 pound fettuccini, uncooked 2 tablespoons canola oil 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded, julienned 1/3 cup green onion 1 lemon, juiced 1 cup Roma tomatoes, seeded, cored and diced 3/4 cup Wholly Guacamole Mix 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper and cumin together. Toss over chicken to coat. Grill chicken for 2 minutes, then turn 45 degrees and cook for another 2 min utes. Flip chicken over and repeat. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then slice the partially cooked chicken into strips. Start boiling water for fettuccini. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt if desired. Follow direc tions on packaging for cooking time. Drain and set aside. Add canola oil to large pan over medium-high heat. Saut pepper strips. Add chicken and cook for at least 4 minutes. Add green onion, lemon juice, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and diced tomatoes. After 1 minute, remove pan from heat and fold in guacamole mix and cooked fettuccini. Suggested garnishes: crumbled queso fresco or cojita cheese.Smallchanges makeabig difference EnjoyGuac AnyTime YouWantIts not always possible to make fresh guacamole, because ripe avocados arent always available. Pre-made guacamole is a great alternative, and you can freeze it for later. But not all guacs are created equal. Make sure the first ingredient is avocado. Wholly Guacamole, for example, is 90 percent avocado with all natural spices. To thaw frozen guac, move it from freezer to fridge for 24 hours, or place unopened package in a bowl of cold water. WhatsSoGreat AboutAvocados?About 75 percent of an avocados calories come from monounsaturated fat (the good kind of fat). Here are some other things you might not know. Avocados: Contain 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Are rich in vitamins B, E and K. Are high in fiber compared to other fruits including 25 percent soluble fiber. Are naturally sodium and cholesterol free. Salsa Salmon Yield: 4 servings 4 salmon steaks (thawed if frozen, but fresh are best) Salt and pepper to taste 8 ounces Wholly Salsa 2 ounces black olives 5 ounces mozzarella cheese (its better to use a ball of mozzarella cut into chunks) Chopped parsley Preheat the oven to 375F. Season salmon with salt and pepper and arrange in an oven-proof dish. Divide salsa evenly, spoon over salmon steaks and scatter olives on top. Top evenly with cheese. Cook for approximately 20 minutes (or recommended cooking time on salmon package). Sprinkle with parsley to serve.Asian Chicken SaladYield: 3 servings Juice from half a lime 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped 4 teaspoons toasted sesame oil 2/3 cup Wholly Guacamole 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar 1/4 teaspoon salt 5 tablespoons water 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce 1 5-ounce package spring salad mix 1/4 cup red onion, diced 1/4 cup tomato, diced 1/2 of a 15-ounce can mandarin oranges, drained 2 tablespoons cilantro, rough chopped 3 grilled chicken breasts Crispy chow mein noodles, for garnish Add lime juice, 1/3 cup chopped cilantro, sesame oil, guacamole, rice wine vinegar, salt, water and soy sauce to blender. Blend until uniform. Place dressing in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to let flavors meld. Toss salad mix, onion, tomato, oranges, dressing and 2 table spoons rough-chopped cilantro in a bowl. Divide salad between 3 plates and top with sliced grilled chicken and chow mein noodles. COMMUNITY NEWS

impression on many young firefighters. He helped mold and shape my career. He touched on his son Christophers Facebook post about his dads career. He recalled the time he was at a Christmas party at Starks resident in Dunnellon when he saw his office and the many accolades, photos and newspaper clippings. I remember Chief Starks mom being there and she asked him to show it all to me, Talbert recalled. He said no one wants to be bothered by stories. I was humbled by his service. I was truly blessed to be taught by him. However, Talbert said, Starks most notable influence among the many young firefighters he taught, it was the lasting impression of the family man he was that left an indelible impression on the thousands of former students. His real passion, his true passion was his lovely wife, Juliette, and his family, Talbert explained. It was always family first for him and a strong legacy of commitment. Toward the end of the Celebration of Life, a video montage with songs ranging from Tony Bennetts Because of You to Bruce Springsteens Terrys Song played as his wife clutched a photo of her late husband she had snagged from a table top prior to the start of the memorial. Stark is survived by his wife, Juliette Stark; his son, Christopher and daughter-in-law, Gina, of Tampa; his daughter, Suzette Altman, and sonin-law, Rob Altman of Ocala; grandchildren, Joshua Stark, Lucien Stark, Alexandra Altman, Robert Altman Jr. and Nicole Altman; and greatgrandchildren, Caden Stark and Maci Slayman.

Service $ 29 95 ernment officials, and the media. This appears to respond only to the June 27 request but might have been intended also to respond to both requests. I write because the city has not complied with the public records law in its response to these requests. At this time, Mr. Jeff Bryan (editor of the Riverland News) has a cause of action for this breach. See, Barfield v. City of Eatonville, 675 So.2d 223 (Fla. 5th DCA 1994); Fla. Stat., 119.12. Before advising him to seek this remedy, I would like to discuss this matter with you. It is possible the city may be able to satisfy the request quite simply. Kaney explained to SegalGeorge when an agency denies a public records request, Section 119.07(1)(e)-(f), Florida Statutes, provides as follows: (e) If the person who has custody of a public record contends that all or part of the record is exempt from inspection and copying, he or she shall state the basis of the exemption that he or she contends is applicable to the record, including the statutory citation to an exemption created or afforded by statute. (f) If requested by the person seeking to inspect or copy the record, the custodian of public records shall state in writing and with particularity the reasons for the conclusion that the record is exempt or confidential. The Citys denial does not comply with subsection (e) of this statute, Kaney wrote, and, if the June 29 memorandum is intended to serve as a response to the July 11 request, which expressly invokes subsection (f) of this statute, the city has not complied with this statute either. The third (unnumbered) paragraph of the memorandum to the Riverland News states: As a lawfully recognized telecommunications company all records containing the names addresses and telephone numbers of subscribers are confidential and exempt pursuant to Section119 Florida Statutes and Section 24(a), Article I of the State Constitution Further all proprietary confidential business information as further defined by Florida Statutes including customer lists customer numbers individual or aggregate customer data by location usage and capacity data network facilities used to serve subscribers technology descriptions technical information or trade secrets is exempt from inspection or copying pursuant to Section119.07(1) Florida Statutes and Section 24(a) Article I of the State Constitution. Neither this paragraph, nor any other communication received by Mr. Bryan complies with the requirement that the city provide the statutory citation to an exemption created or afforded by statute. See Section 119.01(e). Also, of course, the memorandum would not comply with the further requirement that agency state with particularity the reason for the conclusion that the cited exemption applies to the requested records. See, Section 119.07(1)(f) Therefore, the city has breached the public records law, Kaney wrote. However, Kaney notified Segal-George that he would like to discuss the matter with her. It is possible the City may be able to satisfy the request quite simply, Kaney noted. The original information the Riverland News sought was a verbal request with City Manager Lisa Algiere was for the number of subscribers Greenlight has registered thus far. She declined to say, citing competition in the area. However, Algiere in a message left with Bryan late Tuesday said Greenlight has 824 subscribers. Even though you asked for other stuff it is considered propitiatory information and your lawyer has pretty much confirmed that with Marsha, Algiere said. So if all you want is a number, then the number is 824. With an hour of requesting Comcasts subscriber base Tuesday afternoon, a company officiel provided it. Comcast has approximately 2,220 subscribers in the Dunenllon area, which includes the city limits, said Billy Ferry, the regional vice president of Government and External Affairs for Comcast.

SERVINGDUNNELLONANDRAINBOWSPRINGS Thursday, July 19, 2012 Vol 30 No. 39 75 cents Bieber charged with aggravated battery A 46-year-old man, involved in a stabbing at Crocks Pub in December 2011, once again found himself in trouble with law enforcement officials Sunday after biting a man in the cheek and biting part of his ear off. According to reports, Walter Bieber of Dunnellon was charged Sunday with aggravated battery after he become involved in a verbal altercation with another person. The report stated Bieber intentionally or knowing caused great bodily harm or permanent disfigurement while committing battery upon Charles Olson. The report stated Bieber attacked Olson following a verbal argument and while commencing the attack, Bieber bit Olson on the left cheek and then bit his left ear, detaching a large portion of Olsons ear and then spitting it on the floor. Olson was taken Munroe Regional Medical Center for treatment to his cheek and ear. Bieber was transported to the Marion County Jail. Bieber made bail later Sunday; his bond had been set at $5,000. In December 2011, Bieber was involved in a verbal disagreement at Crocks Pub, which turned into a physical confrontation. During that fight, three people were stabbed, none by Bieber. However, Bieber was charged with disorderly intoxication and aggravated assault. Dunnellon man, 19, involved in robbery Man bites ear off of another in fight Suspects shot during holdupOCALA A customer at Palms Internet Caf at 8444 S.W. State Road 200 thwarted a robbery attempt by two 19-yearold men Friday night at the Internet Caf in Ocala. According to police reports, Davis G. Dawkins of Dunnellon and Duwayne B. Henderson of Ocala entered the businesses shortly before 10 p.m. The report stated the two entered wearing masks while one of them, later identified as Dawkins, was in possession of a baseball bat, and the other, Henderson, was brandishing a black firearm. Upon entering the establishment, the report stated, the suspect with the firearm told patrons to turn over their valuables. One of the customers, Samuel Williams, approached Henderson and began shooting at him and Dawkins. Both Dawkins and Henderson fled the scene as Williams continued firing at them, the report stated. After fleeing the establishment, Williams locked the door as authorities were called. According to the report, once on scene, enforcement authorities observed blood, which appeared to be from one of the suspects who was believed to have been shot. Williams told authorities he was at the Internet Caf with his wife Request bogs down in red tape The city of Dunnellon late Tuesday provided the registered number of customers with Greenlight Dunnellon Communications, its fiber to the home program. The request was filled two days after a lawyer with the Florida First Amendment Foundation contacted Marsha Segal-George, the assistant city attorney, to notify the city they were in breach of the states public records law. Johnathan D. Kaney Jr., an attorney with the Florida First Amendment Foundation wrote in a letter to Segal-George. Segal-George, who works for the Orlando-based firm of Fowler, OQuinn, Feeney & Sneed, that the city twice denied records requests submitted by the Riverland News to the city seeking information about who has registered for services with Greenlight Communications Dunnellon as well as the types of services they are using. The city denied these requests, and the City Manager provided Mr. Bryan with a copy or your memorandum dated June 29, wrote Kaney Jr., who works for the private, nonprofit, non-partisan, organization, dedicated to promoting the public's constitutional right to oversee its government through Floridas Sunshine and Public Records Law. Acting as the public's advocate, the Foundation provides a variety of services to citizens, govCity relents, provides data for number of Greenlight subscribers JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Stark: A family man Photos by JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsJuliette Stark, center, buries her head in a picture of her late husband, Frederick Fred C. Stark, Thursday during a Celebration of Life service at the Florida State Fire College in Ocala. Her daughter, Suzette Altman, consoles her mother during the service while her son, Christopher, looks on. Career fireman, father honored at Celebration of Life OCALAFrederick Fred C. Starkey Stark was known for his passion about firefighting and the industry itself. It was more widely known his burning passion was for his family, especially for his wife, Juliette, whom he had been married to for 58 years. Stark died July 2 at Timberridege Medical Center after his wife found him outside their Vogt Springs home. On Thursday, family, friends, former colleagues and current colleagues gathered at the Florida State Fire College to honor the three-term Dunnellon City Councilman who worked at the Florida State Fire College from 1978 to 1993, the last 11 as Bureau Chief of Fire Standards and Training. Prior to working at the sprawling campus, north of Ocala, Stark worked as a firefighter with the NYPD from 1958 to 1973. The Staten Islandnative served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1954 to 1957. Chief Rick Talbert spoke on behalf of the family to the packed room. While I believe that as his son and oldest surviving child, that duty should fall to me, Christopher Stark wrote on the Facebook page the Celebration of Life for Frederick C. Stark. I know it would be an exercise in futility for me to attempt to get up in front of those in attendance and try to pay tribute to my dad in a manner he would approve of. Translation: I do not wish to cry in front of that many witnesses. He would not have it. As Talbert spoke, he touched upon Starks storied career with the NYFD and the mark he made on those whod passed through the doors at the Florida State Fire College. Its been a tough year for us here, we lost another brother, Talbert said, noting two former FSFC instructors Charlie Dill and John James had also died this year. Im very humbled to share a few words with you. I didnt feel worthy and privileged to speak. He left an Walter Bieber Davis G. Dawkins 19-year-old fr om Dunnellon.

WE MATCH COMPETITOR PRICES On RX Drugs Appeals court to rule on road assessments The long-drawn out battle between residents in Rainbow Springs and Marion County government over an assessment regarding repaving of road could come to a dead end today, depending on how appellate court judges rule. We are asking them to reverse the ruling that the reassessments are illegal, said attorney Richard Bennett, hired to represent the residents of Country Club Estates in Rainbow Springs. Depending on what the outcome is, depends on what we do next. I think the percentages on appeals the ruling of the trial court generally stands. Statistically, you dont fare well, but I believe our facts in this case are unique and we have a chance of prevailing. A hearing is scheduled for today as judges will make the final ruling about the reassessment Marion County officials levied against homeowners years ago regarding repaving in the Villages of Rainbow Springs. In 2006, residents Patricia and Michael Slattery, Louis Benza and Donald Senger formed a committee opposing the road work assessment and question the ballot process. That group became known as F.A.R.E., standing for Fund All Roads Equitably. Howwever, Deborah Techentin, Joan and Edward Duggans and Penny and Ioannes Fyrogennis filed suit on behalf of the residents of the Villages of Rainbow Springs. It hinged on the issue of whether a clear majority of affected landowners has actually voted to approve the project back in late 2005. The county thought it had the necessary ballots to go ahead, but some residents disagreed. They argued that under Florida law, 51 percent of all the landowners had to approve the assessment, but the county went ahead with approval from only about one-third of the landowners. According to Florida laws, 51 percent of all landowners must approve the assessment. The county created the MSBU with the approval of only about onethird of them, Bennett argued in court. The group eventually hired the Coral Gables-based Bennett, who had prior experience with a similar case. Court records show legal action against the county started in June 2007. Since the roughly $900 assessment started, residents had the option of making payments over 10 years at about $132 a year, or paying up in full, saving the interest. But the money is just part of the problem. The court will decide today if the county must refund the assessment its been charging or residents will remain on the hook for the cost to pave the road. How that will be affected is unclear, and with the road work already been done, it is uncertain where the county would get the money to refund the homeowners if necessary. Suit stems from 2006 when Rainbow Springs residents fought county about roads JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Post 58 members visit veterans at Hampton Manor West Special to the Riverland NewsAmerican Legion Post 58 members Bernard James, Eugene Thomas, Bob Anderson, Peg Furst and Marilyn Boemi visited the veterans July 3 at Hampton Manor West and presented them with a cake.

and was afraid the suspects were going to shoot somebody. He told the detective he and his wife were scared (expletive) and he began shooting at the men. He told officials he could not remember how many shots he fired. Shortly after the incident at the Internet Caf, law enforcement authorities received information that two subjects were being transported from Marion Oaks to a hospital with gunshot injuries after telling residents they had been shot while at Scott Carrigan Baseball Park on Southeast 17th Street in Ocala. Officers, the report stated, went to the ball field but found no evidence of a shooting there. Both men were transported to Shands Hospital in Gainesville. Officials later confirmed Dawkins had a superficial wound in his left arm, but Henderson was shot in two places: his left buttock and his right hip. In an interview at the hospital, Dawkins admitted to Detective Erik Dice he took part in the robbery, according to the report. The young man said he had the bat, which had been in his vehicle. Dawkins told the detective he was confronted by two people at the ball field and forced to assist in the robbery. Officials said Dawkins previously had worked for the cafe but had been fired. Henderson, in his interview with authorities, said both he and Dawkins planned the robbery together, the report stated. Dawkins bond was set at $11,000. He bonded out Sunday of the Marion County Jail. Hendersons bond was set at $31,000. He remains in the Marion County Jail. An 18-year-old Ocala man and four teenage juveniles were charged with burglary and petit theft July 9, after authorities revealed they had broken into the Dunnellon Little League concession stand. According to the arrest report, Nikolai Pierro and four other teens, whose names are being withheld because of their age, broke into the concession stand of the Dunnellon Little League, which was closed. The report stated the five defendants took miscellaneous food and drink items such as Gatorade, candy as potato chips, totaling up to $100. Pierro told authorities he and the other four defendants threw the items out of the broken window in which one of the other defendants had broke to gain entrance into the concession stand, the report stated. According to the report, the stolen items were placed into two of the defendants vehicles before the five left the park. All of the items were recovered, the report stated. Pierros bond was set at $2,250. He bonded out July 9 of the Marion County Jail.Man charged with simple batteryA 21-year-old Inglis man was charged with Simple Battery (Dating Violence), according to arrest reports. William G. Degennaro was charged July 10, a report states, after he and his girlfriend of seven months were involved in an altercation at the Dunnellon Wal-Mart. According to the report, Degennaro admitted to grabbing the victim by the arm and trying to pull her out of the store, saying babe, lets just go home, at which time the victim pulled away and yelled, leave me alone or Ill call the police. Degennaro then grabbed the victim by the hair pulling her to the ground. The report stated the victim got up, pushed Degennaro away and ran out of the store. According to the report, two eyewitnesses told authorities they observed Degennaro grab the victim by the arm and push her down after the victim told Degennaro to leave her alone. Both Degennaro and the victim told police they had been dating for about seven months and were still currently in a relationship. No bond was set. Degennaro was released July 12 from the Marion County Jail.Man charged with trespassingA 52-year-old Dunnellon man was charged with trespassing (after warning), according to police reports. Joseph M. Borst was charged July 12, an arrest report states, after knowingly and unlawfully entering the property at the Dunnellon Circle K after being issued a trespass warning in April 2012. According to the report, law enforcement officials witnessed Borst standing in the parking lot of Circle K. Upon seeing a patrol vehicle, Borst ran toward the sidewalk and began stating, I was on the sidewalk. The report stated upon making contact with Borst, police detected a strong odor of alcoholic beverages emanating from Borsts breath and body. Borst told authorities he knew we was not supposed to be on Circle K property. Officer Mike Miley made contact with the store clerk who provided a copy of the trespass warning issued in April. Per the warning, Borst is not allowed at the location for one year. The clerk said she observed Borst yelling at customers in the parking lot and causing problems prior to Mileys arrival. Borsts bond was set at $10,000. As of press deadline Tuesday, he remained in the Marion County Jail.

River views Leave the fighting to the troops, not the politiciansI am writing this letter as a concerned daughter, niece, Michigan resident and, basically, U.S. Citizen. I travel the world for business and have seen plenty in my life time. Now I am very miffed by the treatment the residents of Rainbow Springs are enduring by the city of Dunnellon. We all look forward to our golden years. We work hard so we can enjoy retirement, as did many of the Rainbow Springs residents. This once quaint sleepy village had much to offer to the average Joe who wanted to enjoy their golden years in rest and relaxation. Whether it is golfing, walking the trails, relaxing by the river or shopping and dining out, the town of Dunnellon was a superior choice for my relatives. As in our cyclical economy, the recession hit and we went to war. In hard times we just learn to scale back. Living in Michigan, believe me, we had to readjust our lives. But I am disturbed by what I am seeing taking place in Dunnellon. First, if was the cameras placed at certain intersections to generate income for the city. Then it was the purchase of the water plant with an increase price of water used by residents. And now the assessment of road repairs, when does it end? The residents of Rainbow Springs are mostly too old to send to Afghanistan, so lets start our own war right in their back yard. Well to the elected officials of Dunnellon, you should be ashamed of yourselves. You have caused anxiety, high blood pressure and even heart problems, along with other stress related issues. Is this how you want to be treated in your golden years? Better yet, is this how you want your parents to be treated? As I understand it, houses are going up for sale in record numbers. Those that are not selling are putting in new wells, and with all the turmoil come increased doctors visits and more medications. Well, I only see one winner and its not the residents or the city. Leave the fighting to the Armed Forces and restore the quaint village that attracted these residents to begin with.Respectfully, Verda K. Hanrahan Pinckney, Mich. Congressmans visit to area was much appreciatedDear Congressman Stearns, Your visit to Rainbow Springs July 3 was most welcomed and appreciated. It provided the community the opportunity to meet with you personally and voice our discontentment What really defines classic? Oh yes, I did! Ireally should know better. Honestly, you would think at my age I would have learned enough lessons that I would be able to make better decisions. I am blaming it all on my brother Bill. OK, so he was in Alabama at the time, its still his fault. Yeah, thats it, its Bills fault. He and my sisterin-law, Molly, were coming to visit. All week I had been cleaning. You see, Molly used to run a high-end Bed & Breakfast in New York. It has been featured in several movies. It was always spotless when Molly ran the place. My sister, Maryellen, is a clean freak. Molly makes her look like a slob. She would never take out the white gloves, but I know she has an aversion to dirt. Besides having a sloppy house, I am also a terrible hostess. I dont enjoy being a hostess. Its stressful and I become a nervous wreck. I like living the hermit life in my little hovel. Ask any of my friends and they will tell you they have rarely ever stepped foot in my house. My family doesnt visit either. Diane, a friend of mine, said she doesnt want to come over because she is afraid she will find me half naked. Having read my past columns, you know there is a strong possibility I will be. If you have the courage or youve drawn the short straw and you end up staying at my house, you will get clean towels, a freshly made bed and absolutely nothing else! I dont cook, so there isnt any food in the house. I make very good reservations. I am one of those people who dont enjoy food. Its something I need to stay alive. Inhalation of my meals is not what I would call fun. Its a habit I got growing up in a large family. Dinner time was not enjoyable. With Vietnam being a sitting member at the dinner table, meals often ended in yelling matches between the peacenik twins and my dad, the Navy man. To this day, food is just another word for indigestion. The last time Bill and Molly visited, the house and me received a failing grade. I was not in the mood to clean. Cleaning is one of those things that I need to be in the mood to do. Both Molly and my sister have a tendency to clean before they leave. My brother and I used to fight over who got my sister when she visited because she always left the house cleaner than when she showed up. Now he gets my sister and I get Molly. Everybody wins! This time I vowed to do a better job. I cleaned for days. The floors were washed vacuumed and waxed. The guest bathroom was spotless. I made the guest bed. At that point, I didnt have much left to do. They werent arriving for another three days. Hey, I got an idea. I will break down and put food in my fridge! Now, what do normal people eat?

Were always celebrating somebodys birthday, or someones anniversary or sometimes just somebodys good news. Thats a good thing, of course, and Im truly grateful, but it can also become a bad thing when life gets crazy and expensive. I have two parents, two brothers, two daughters, two stepsons, two grandchildren and two nieces. Yet, with the amount of parties and get-togethers we have, you would think I spawned 15 children. I guess we just love to be together, eating, chatting and laughing. Its what we do best. Sometimes it can get overwhelming, especially when there is an important event that we cant miss both Saturday and Sunday. Then we have to go back to work Monday and it feels like we had no relaxing time at all. It also leaves no time to get a few things done around the house. But like I said, Im not complaining. For the past couple of years, all festivities have centered around my house as its the biggest and we have a pool. I love entertaining and Im getting pretty good at it actually. Ive learned two things. First, do as much as possible the night before. Second, try to relax and have fun. If all the food isnt done at the same time, you will survive. Its always a great idea if you have everybody bring a dish. This way, youre not doing it all by yourself. Besides other peoples food always seems to taste better when its a buffet. Of course having a husband that loves to grill helps, too. Were finding that can cook just about anything on these new gas grills. Still, sometimes when I hear a girl at work say: all I did all weekend was relax and read a book, I sometimes wish for those simpler days. Then again, I wouldnt trade what I have right now for anything, even if it does get crazy sometimes. I dont think well be slowing down anytime soon though. We have two huge events in July, a family vacation to Tennessee and my fathers 80th birthday party when we get back. Youll be hearing more about both of them. We had wanted to do another family vacation. The last time we all got together was a cruise for my parents 50th anniversary seven years ago. So it was definitely time to plan another one. My parents had a trip planned to the Tennessee Mountains anyway. Its one of my dads favorite places to be. In fact, he and my mother go at least once a year, sometimes twice. Then we Can we slow down now? With certainty, I have an eclectic mix of musical taste. I can blame that on my parents, daddy was a little more country and momma was rock n roll. Both products of the 1960s, they didnt listen to much of the acid rock, nor much of the tree hugging hippie tunes of the generation. Thats not to say I dont listen to it either. I drove my friends bonkers as a young teenager, being able to switch gears from the music of our era to that of the s and s to country/western and the likes of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and many others. I still do the same today, but admittedly, I consider most of what is being produced today is flat out terrible and stinks. I often lean more toward the classic rock though; the likes of Queen, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and, most importantly ladies and gentlemen, The Beatles. Frankly, I believe any of todays youths who have not been introduced to the sounds of the Fab Four are truly deprived. To me, thats classic rock. Apparently, though, a few local deejays dont agree with me. Honestly, they have me believing Im older than what my birth certificate indicates. A recent morning drive to work, the local classic rock station decided music I listened to in my midto-late-teen years is now classic rock. What the heck? What moron was selecting tunes that morning? The specific song you ask? Pearl Jams Alive. For those of you completely unfamiliar with the band, they were a part of the Seattle grunge rock movement in the early s. The movement set the tone, the groups of the era sang the anthems for Generation X. For those folks who are true Southerners, they made flannel shirts all the rage and the prices skyrocket. Of course with the advent of the Internet, I did multiple searches about how classic rock is defined. Several websites proved to be utterly useless, some websites stated grunge rock could be labeled classic. I disagree. Its not classic, not even close to classic, at least not yet. First of all, most s music is just now finding its way onto classic rock stations and thats a tough pill to swallow hearing the likes of Bon Jovi and Guns N Roses in the regular rotation. Music during my teenage adolescence? Id beg to differ. If local radio deejays keep up their antics, they will cause the few gray hairs I have to multiply. Garth Brooks said it best: Im much too young to feel this damn old. Kathleen Wallace Audrey Beem Jeff Bryan Editor See LETTERS page 5 See JERSEY page 5 See TIME page 5

meal. I will pick up some eggs and bacon. If I have breakfast covered I am halfway there. We usually go out for lunch or dinner. OK, here is where my brain gets fuzzy. I decided to buy pork chops and marinate them. I will impress Bill and Molly with my grilling abilities. The house came with an outdoor grill attached to the house. That has been the extent of my cooking for the past seven years. I grill steak or chops about three times a year. I picked up some barbecue sauce. I figured I would try this new sauce and if I liked it, I would marinate some chops for the day they arrive. That night, I put my chop on the grill. I had some time to kill, so I started my laundry. About seven minutes in I smelled something horrible. It was burnt rubber. Egads, what had I done? I looked out at the lanai and I couldnt see it! Gray smoke covered the whole area. I opened the sliding glass door and saw the grill on fire. Panicking is one of my strong points. I do it well. The curse words flew and my brain started going over a list. OK, stop, drop and roll. No, thats not it ... you do that if you are on fire. Water ... yeah, water puts out a fire. No, No, its electrical. Never use water. I remember my mom saying you use some kind of household product like flour or something. Gee, what was it. Oh heck, its not as if I would actually have what I need in the house if I could even remember what it was. 911! Yeah, thats it. Call 911. I ran back in the house and called 911. The operator wanted my address. Are you kidding me? You want me to remember where I live at a time like this! Calm down. Breathe deep. What? Now he wants my phone number. I give him my number from Ohio. I havent lived there in seven years. No, no, let me think. OK, I remember it. Now he wants me to describe the fire and where it is. Is it attached to the house? No. Wait, I mean yes! I had left a corner of the grill cover over the flame and the cover was on fire along with the cheap 30-year-old cabinet the grill is housed in. The flames are shooting higher. Black soot is covering the walls and it is beginning to choke me. Oh damn! I left the door to the house open and the house if filling up with the smell of burnt plastic. I close the door and it dawns on me. Throw the plastic cover into the pool. Then the debate in my brain starts. I just emptied my pool, fixed a big crack and was starting to refill the pool. The water was a gorgeous blue. Do I really want to put an ash filled burning cover in my spotless pool? Kathleen, sometimes you are an idiot. Let the house burn or dirty your pool? You really have to think about this, it should be a no brainer. But, but ... the water prices have gone up. No buts!!! I pick up the grill cover and chuck it in the pool. Afterward, I thought I could have burned my hand, so I should have worn an oven mitt. Live and learn. One fire out and three small ones to go. Thankfully, the firefighters showed up Marion County Ladder 22 to the rescue. I felt awful. It was 500 degrees, the humidity took your breath away and these poor folks are in full uniform. I was soaked standing there in my dress. I could not imagine wearing all that equipment in that heat. I would like to thank them for their help and for putting up my smoke detector that had been sitting on my dresser for the past six months. They could tell I was lying when I said it had only been there a few days. Really, I should know better that to cook! Bill and Molly, its PB&J for you. July 3 was most welcomed and appreciated. It provided the community the opportunity to meet with you personally and voice our discontentment with the malicious transgressions imposed upon us, the rooftops who suck the services out of the city, by the city of Dunnellon. Quite obviously, we are unanimous in our opinions and we seem to be singing from the same hymnal. As a unified group of concerned citizens, we do represent a substantial voting bloc who is, collectively, willing to support the candidate who best serves our interests. Hopefully, you are that candidate who refuses to be disillusioned by the outrageous statements attributed to the mayor and City Council. However, if you even remotely consider granting federal funds and/or stimulus monies to the city to further their squandering on their misguided financial blunders, you are not that trusted conservative who will represent our needs. Herein, a further reiteration or dissertation of the red-light entrapment and water/sewer exploitations will not be addressed. Your requested Burt Eno dossier is a rather comprehensive document that should fully acquaint you with these atrocities. Notably these are blatant attempts to extort monies from those rooftop suckers. Although you may have been understandably deceived by the misleading statements regarding Greenlight and city misdeeds, your assessment of Dunnellon is right on target. Agreeably, the city should be enshrined as a tourist mecca and emblematic of historic pride. Dilapidated buildings, storefronts in disarray, vacancies and an appearance of general neglect are more symbolic of a ghost town and not a thriving community. How can this city, in its present condition, promote business investments and provide job opportunities? Congressman Stearns, most of the populace of the neighboring community share your conservative views and agree with your vision for Dunnellon. Whenever you have completely reviewed our plight, Burts notes and other pertinent data, please plan to revisit or, in some form, communicate your assessments and recommendations. Although I can not speak for everyone, I personally was impressed with your charisma, sincerity, and straightforwardness. Thank you for your visit!Bill Pawliw Rainbow Springs found out my brother, Dominic, from Iowa was planning to meet them there and then come to Florida for a week. So we thought wouldnt it be great if we could all go? After all, vacations with the whole entire family are always the best. Needless to say, this took a little finagling, especially with me just starting a new job three months ago. But we worked it out and now its really going to happen. We rented one of those huge cabins that sleeps 12 people; split four ways it wasnt going to cost much, but then my wonderful father decided to pay the whole thing. Thank you, Dad! The suitcases are getting packed, food is being bought and everybody is excited. The last time I went to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge was more than 20 years ago, so Im very excited. Weve been to Nashville because my sister-in-law lives there, but we havent been to the mountains in quite some time. Im looking forward to Dollywood, monorail rides through the mountains, sight-seeing, and just being with the family. Have I mentioned were a loud family? Soon our voices will be echoing through the valleys. Tennessee, here we come.

RIVERLANDSPORTS 6 Riverland News, Thursday, July 19, 2012 9-10 boys second at sectional CLEARWATER The final game of the Section 7 Little League baseball tournament took place Sunday as Dunnellon pulled out its first win of the weekend, defeating the District 12 champions and host Countryside, 5-4, in extra innings. The win was good enough to earn Dunnellon the 9-10 sectional runner-up spot in the tournament, while Citrus Park claimed the top spot. The kids didnt give up, Dunnellon coach Mike Michaud said about the victory. We came back Sunday and the kids gave it their all. They had a lot of heart and were very proud of them. Pitcher Richie Fox started from the mound, giving Dunnellon four strong innings followed by Jimmy Weber, who closed out the game. Michael Rey singled in the tying run at the bottom of the sixth inning. With bases loaded and one out, Jaron Cortese sprinted home off a passed ball for the game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh after Weber held Countryside bats at bay in the top of the frame. Dale Michaud, who went 2-for-3 with two RBIs, and teammate Drew Leinenbach, who was 2-for3 with two doubles, both had clutch hits early in the game to aid Dunnellon in its win.Citrus Park 3, Dunnellon 1Citrus Park got out front early Saturday, staking itself to a 2-0 lead and holding Dunnellon at bay for the victory.

It is time for good old Uncle George to pay up. For years, at least as long as I can remember, he always eluded everything by saying, Ill do that when pigs fly. Or, Ill give you $100 for that when pigs fly. My favorite might be, Ill go to church when pigs fly. Well, Uncle George, it is time for you to pay up for all of those promises in the past. According to some airlines, pigs can fly. I am not sure I have all of the facts, but then again facts have little to do with most stories going around these days. All I know, certain airlines will allow you to carry on board your pet pig if it is important to you for your mental well-being. After all, only the pilots are allowed to be mentally off when it comes to flying. I must confess that my least favorite mode of transportation is flying. Now, according to some rumors flying around, I have more reasons not to like flying. I think the cost of flying his discouraged me from enjoying the flight. It seems terribly expensive to squeeze your body into the seat made for a person half your size so that you can pay double the price. It takes me about a half hour to get myself squeezed into a seat and manipulate the seatbelt to go all the way around me. By that time, I need to go to the restroom. Why I do not think of that before I sit down is one of those mysteries of nature that never will be solved. Another half hour to extricate myself from the seat and go and stand in line at the restroom for another half hour and then come back and squeeze myself back into the seat and again manipulate the seatbelts. By that time, I am totally exhausted. Another reason I am not too fond of flying has to do with the cuisine. When you mentioned airline food, the term cuisine does not readily come to mind. Whatever they serve on board has nothing whatsoever to resemble nutritious cuisine. I think some of these people who are going to begin taking their pigs on board might take this into consideration. If the food is as bad as it has been, somebody, like yours truly, might look at that pig with a certain cuisine activity in mind. I am not adverse to a nicely roasted pork for lunch. In fact, I am going to start taking apples with me when I fly just in case the occasion presents itself. I suppose the biggest reason I do not like flying has to do with the seats. Whoever designed airline seats never had an encounter with a real man. I believe they thought that the only people who would ever fly an airplane would be height-challenged people. Those who would not take up much space. Perhaps also they were thinking of people who were posteriorly challenged. Have you looked at people lately? There are very few posteriorly challenged people left in the world anymore. Perhaps they were thinking of those days when people had to work their butts off making a living. Now, no such activity is being exercised in our country. Now that pigs are going to be able to fly the friendly skies, whats next? I have endured all kinds of people during my years of flying. Now, not only do I have to share my seat with suffocating, boring, chatty people, but also I need to make room for pigs. Who was it that made this decision? Who was it that sat down and said, You know, I think it would be a good idea if we allowed pigs to fly on airplanes. It is obvious that the people who made this decision are not familiar with pigs. Perhaps they were thinking of Porky Pig. Now, there is a pig I would not mind traveling with in the friendly skies. The conversation would probably be better than some of the conversations I have had in similar situations. Of course, his stuttering might drive me crazy. Being a country boy, I know what a pig is. My grandfather used to raise pigs, so, I have been around pigs and know what they are like and, most importantly, how bad they smell. It is a well-known fact that the reason pigs have such large snouts is because they smell so bad. And they enjoy smelling bad. I can think of one reason why the airlines want to include pigs in the list of passengers. Most of them serve food only a pig would like. I know that being politically correct is a8 Riverland News, Thursday, July 19, 2012 Pigs can fly, but not with me OUT TO PASTOR CHURCH EVENTS Clothe the Children drive Special to the Riverland NewsPat Morana, left, and Joan Gesek, of the Altar and Rosary Society of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Dunnellon, show off some of clothing that has been donated to the Clothe the Children drive.

mandate in our culture. I further know that criticizing stupidity in our culture is a huge no-no. In fact, to recognize such absurdity is a reflection upon your character. For anybody to think that a pig does not belong in a seat beside you as you fly the friendly skies is some kind of antediluvian moron. I think Solomon got it right when he said, And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow (Ecclesiastes 1:17-18 KJV). Uncle George, it is pay up time, Ill see you in church Sunday.Rev. James L.

United Way is looking for ReadingPals for the school year OCALA United Way of Marion County is looking to recruit 100 volunteers to be placed in local elementary schools this fall and be paired up with one child to work on literacy skills. The volunteer commitment consists of one hour, once a week for 25 weeks. Training and materials will be provided. This volunteer recruitment effort is in response to a grant that United Way of Marion County received from Carol and Barney Barnett. The grant is focused on engaging, training and deploying volunteer reading pals in 10 Florida regions to increase the number of students who are reading at grade level by the end of third grade. Working with local school districts, United Ways Womens Leadership Councils, Early Learning Coalitions, Childrens Services Councils and others, this initiative will focus on engaging students from prekindergarten to third grade. Local United Ways are tasked with partnering with their local school system, using a common state-wide preand post-assessment, tracking volunteer hours and providing books for children to take home. Implementation of the program is left to the discretion of each community. When schools improve, communities improve and sometimes kids just need someone who believes in them, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. United Way recognizes that everyone can contribute to a childs academic success. Volunteer training will be offered from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 2, at the Marion County Public Library Headquarters at 2720 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala. Volunteers will be placed when school begins in the fall. For more information, contact Jan Hathaway at 352-732-9696, ext. 212, or jhathaway@uwmc.org.

In these recipes, mayo, high-calorie dressings and heavy sauces get swapped out for creamy guacamole or flavorful fat-free salsas. Swaps like these make it easy to enjoy your favorite recipes even when youre cutting back on fat and calories. All-natural and preservative-free Wholly Guacamole brings a whole new dimension of tastiness to Asian Chicken Salad and Grilled Chicken Fettuccini and it cuts down on the bad fats typically found in these dishes. The Salsa Salmon recipe gets a healthful zip of flavor from Wholly Salsa and you can make it as spicy as you like. Here are some other super swaps you can do to make a big difference in how you eat:Breakfast: Instead of high-fat cheese, add a dollop of guacamole to eggs.Lunch: Skip the mayo and add guac to your ham or turkey sandwich.Snack: Dip carrots or other veggies in salsa to keep you going until dinner.Dinner: Lose the high-fat dressing and sauces and try spicy guac on burgers, chicken, fish and, of course, tacos. Find more recipes to help you make the swap at www.eatwholly.com. Grilled Chicken FettucciniYield: 4 servings 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1 tablespoon ground cumin 3 chicken breasts 1/2 pound fettuccini, uncooked 2 tablespoons canola oil 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded, julienned 1/3 cup green onion 1 lemon, juiced 1 cup Roma tomatoes, seeded, cored and diced 3/4 cup Wholly Guacamole Mix 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper and cumin together. Toss over chicken to coat. Grill chicken for 2 minutes, then turn 45 degrees and cook for another 2 min utes. Flip chicken over and repeat. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then slice the partially cooked chicken into strips. Start boiling water for fettuccini. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt if desired. Follow direc tions on packaging for cooking time. Drain and set aside. Add canola oil to large pan over medium-high heat. Saut pepper strips. Add chicken and cook for at least 4 minutes. Add green onion, lemon juice, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and diced tomatoes. After 1 minute, remove pan from heat and fold in guacamole mix and cooked fettuccini. Suggested garnishes: crumbled queso fresco or cojita cheese.Smallchanges makeabig difference EnjoyGuac AnyTime YouWantIts not always possible to make fresh guacamole, because ripe avocados arent always available. Pre-made guacamole is a great alternative, and you can freeze it for later. But not all guacs are created equal. Make sure the first ingredient is avocado. Wholly Guacamole, for example, is 90 percent avocado with all natural spices. To thaw frozen guac, move it from freezer to fridge for 24 hours, or place unopened package in a bowl of cold water. WhatsSoGreat AboutAvocados?About 75 percent of an avocados calories come from monounsaturated fat (the good kind of fat). Here are some other things you might not know. Avocados:Contain 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.Are rich in vitamins B, E and K. Are high in fiber compared to other fruits including 25 percent soluble fiber. Are naturally sodium and cholesterol free.Salsa SalmonYield: 4 servings 4 salmon steaks (thawed if frozen, but fresh are best) Salt and pepper to taste 8 ounces Wholly Salsa 2 ounces black olives 5 ounces mozzarella cheese (its better to use a ball of mozzarella cut into chunks) Chopped parsley Preheat the oven to 375F. Season salmon with salt and pepper and arrange in an oven-proof dish. Divide salsa evenly, spoon over salmon steaks and scatter olives on top. Top evenly with cheese. Cook for approximately 20 minutes (or recommended cooking time on salmon package). Sprinkle with parsley to serve.Asian Chicken SaladYield: 3 servings Juice from half a lime 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped 4 teaspoons toasted sesame oil 2/3 cup Wholly Guacamole 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar 1/4 teaspoon salt 5 tablespoons water 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce 1 5-ounce package spring salad mix 1/4 cup red onion, diced 1/4 cup tomato, diced 1/2 of a 15-ounce can mandarin oranges, drained 2 tablespoons cilantro, rough chopped 3 grilled chicken breasts Crispy chow mein noodles, for garnish Add lime juice, 1/3 cup chopped cilantro, sesame oil, guacamole, rice wine vinegar, salt, water and soy sauce to blender. Blend until uniform. Place dressing in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to let flavors meld. Toss salad mix, onion, tomato, oranges, dressing and 2 table spoons rough-chopped cilantro in a bowl. Divide salad between 3 plates and top with sliced grilled chicken and chow mein noodles. COMMUNITY NEWS

impression on many young firefighters. He helped mold and shape my career. He touched on his son Christophers Facebook post about his dads career. He recalled the time he was at a Christmas party at Starks resident in Dunnellon when he saw his office and the many accolades, photos and newspaper clippings. I remember Chief Starks mom being there and she asked him to show it all to me, Talbert recalled. He said no one wants to be bothered by stories. I was humbled by his service. I was truly blessed to be taught by him. However, Talbert said, Starks most notable influence among the many young firefighters he taught, it was the lasting impression of the family man he was that left an indelible impression on the thousands of former students. His real passion, his true passion was his lovely wife, Juliette, and his family, Talbert explained. It was always family first for him and a strong legacy of commitment. Toward the end of the Celebration of Life, a video montage with songs ranging from Tony Bennetts Because of You to Bruce Springsteens Terrys Song played as his wife clutched a photo of her late husband she had snagged from a table top prior to the start of the memorial. Stark is survived by his wife, Juliette Stark; his son, Christopher and daughter-in-law, Gina, of Tampa; his daughter, Suzette Altman, and sonin-law, Rob Altman of Ocala; grandchildren, Joshua Stark, Lucien Stark, Alexandra Altman, Robert Altman Jr. and Nicole Altman; and greatgrandchildren, Caden Stark and Maci Slayman. The family requests that any donations be sent to the Wounded Warrior in Action Foundation or Dunnellon Fire Rescue.Riverland News, Thursday, July 19, 2012 13 352-465-6631 PAINTING Ferraros Painting Interior & Exterior Pressure Washing FREE ESTIMATES Repaint Specialist 000BXDT 352-237-2796 Family Owned & Operated Since 1972 Licensed & Insured #3803 Dependable A Division of R.C.

Service $ 29 95 ernment officials, and the media. This appears to respond only to the June 27 request but might have been intended also to respond to both requests. I write because the city has not complied with the public records law in its response to these requests. At this time, Mr. Jeff Bryan (editor of the Riverland News) has a cause of action for this breach. See, Barfield v. City of Eatonville, 675 So.2d 223 (Fla. 5th DCA 1994); Fla. Stat., 119.12. Before advising him to seek this remedy, I would like to discuss this matter with you. It is possible the city may be able to satisfy the request quite simply. Kaney explained to SegalGeorge when an agency denies a public records request, Section 119.07(1)(e)-(f), Florida Statutes, provides as follows: (e) If the person who has custody of a public record contends that all or part of the record is exempt from inspection and copying, he or she shall state the basis of the exemption that he or she contends is applicable to the record, including the statutory citation to an exemption created or afforded by statute. (f) If requested by the person seeking to inspect or copy the record, the custodian of public records shall state in writing and with particularity the reasons for the conclusion that the record is exempt or confidential. The Citys denial does not comply with subsection (e) of this statute, Kaney wrote, and, if the June 29 memorandum is intended to serve as a response to the July 11 request, which expressly invokes subsection (f) of this statute, the city has not complied with this statute either. The third (unnumbered) paragraph of the memorandum to the Riverland News states: As a lawfully recognized telecommunications company all records containing the names addresses and telephone numbers of subscribers are confidential and exempt pursuant to Section119 Florida Statutes and Section 24(a), Article I of the State Constitution Further all proprietary confidential business information as further defined by Florida Statutes including customer lists customer numbers individual or aggregate customer data by location usage and capacity data network facilities used to serve subscribers technology descriptions technical information or trade secrets is exempt from inspection or copying pursuant to Section119.07(1) Florida Statutes and Section 24(a) Article I of the State Constitution. Neither this paragraph, nor any other communication received by Mr. Bryan complies with the requirement that the city provide the statutory citation to an exemption created or afforded by statute. See Section 119.01(e). Also, of course, the memorandum would not comply with the further requirement that agency state with particularity the reason for the conclusion that the cited exemption applies to the requested records. See, Section 119.07(1)(f) Therefore, the city has breached the public records law, Kaney wrote. However, Kaney notified Segal-George that he would like to discuss the matter with her. It is possible the City may be able to satisfy the request quite simply, Kaney noted. The original information the Riverland News sought was a verbal request with City Manager Lisa Algiere was for the number of subscribers Greenlight has registered thus far. She declined to say, citing competition in the area. However, Algiere in a message left with Bryan late Tuesday said Greenlight has 824 subscribers. Even though you asked for other stuff it is considered propitiatory information and your lawyer has pretty much confirmed that with Marsha, Algiere said. So if all you want is a number, then the number is 824. With an hour of requesting Comcasts subscriber base Tuesday afternoon, a company officiel provided it. Comcast has approximately 2,220 subscribers in the Dunenllon area, which includes the city limits, said Billy Ferry, the regional vice president of Government and External Affairs for Comcast.
