Report: Police tase suspect resisting arrest A male driver suspected of driving under the influence July 25 was tased after resisting arrest, a police report stated. According to the arrest report, Kevin M. Barley, 39, of Williston, was charged with driving under the influence and resisting an officer without violence after Office Mike Miley observed a 2003 Ford F-150, black in color, driving northbound on U.S. 41. The report stated Miley noted the vehicle failed to maintain travel in the inside lane, crossing over the yellow line and almost driving onto the median. At this time, the report stated, Miley conducted a traffic stop in the Rainbow Square Plaza. The report stated Miley made contact with Barley and noticed he had watery eyes and he could smell the odor of alcohol emanating from Barleys breath. Miley informed Barley the reason he stopped him was because of his inability to maintain travel within his lane of traffic. Barley spontaneously stated, Ive had a few beers at the bar. I only live a mile away, cant you just cut a country boy a break? According to the report, Williston man faces two charges, including DUI Kevin M. Barley Photos by JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsBrandi Cage-Milam comforts her son, Nicholas, during a vigil last year for Linda Cage, inset, who was shot and killed in her front yard Aug. 4, 2011, in the Lake Tropicana area. Almost a year has passed since her death and no suspects have been charged in the homicide. JEFF BRYAN Riverland News District chooses principal for DMS Smallridge aims to make mark Enthusiasm exudes from the words pouring from Delbert Smallridges mouth, the earto-ear grin he sports tells one hes more than excited about his newest challenge. The recently named principal at Dunnellon Middle School has been on the job for two-plus weeks; however, he said hes learned the most important lesson thus far about being a part of the school. There is such a sense of community here, said Smallridge, who has served as a vice principal in the Marion County School District for the past 11 years, most recently at Lake Weir Middle School for five years. Thats what I learned the first day I was here. That is probably what has me the most excited for the upcoming year, the sense of community that has been fostered here. If theres any apprehension, though, one surely doesnt notice it. It will certainly be a different role than Im accustomed to having, its going to be a year of learning, said Smallridge, who enters his 23rd year in the MCPS system, his 24th year overall in education. The University of Central Florida graduate is no stranger to life in academic halls of middle schools. Its where hes spent his entire career in the district. Smallridge taught Longtime Italian eatery, Lombardos, closes its doors Family-owned restaurants are hard to find these days and one of Dunnellons familyowned restaurants has come to an end. Tim and Jeanne Neal have owned and operated Lombardos Restaurant just north of the intersection of State Road 40 and U.S. 41, near Rainbow Lakes Estates since 1984. But after 28 years of continuous ownership, they have sold the business and the last day was Saturday, July 28. Weve seen places and people come and go, and while it has been a constant struggle to make ends meet, Lombardos survived, said their daughter, Laura Hill. Tim and Jeanne Neal decided it was time to sell the business after Jeanne came home from work with swollen feet. Jeanne was diagnosed with breast cancer four years ago and had a heart attack earlier this year. Old age catches up with you. We just decided it was time to shut down the business and move on to something else, said Jeanne. Jeanne has been in the restaurant business ever since she can remember. Her stepfather and mother owned a restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, and her stepdad, Jack Lombardo, taught her the recipes Lombardos uses now. Jeanne and Tim decided to name the restaurant Lombardos after her JOE DUNAWAY/For the Riverland NewsLaura Hill, left, and Tim Neal prepare garlic rolls in the kitchen Saturday at Lombardos Restaurant. Saturday marked the final day of business at Lombardos, which closed its doors after 28 years in business.

Who shines white light and wants to show, how everything still turns to gold. And if you listen very hard the tune will come to you at last. When all is one and one is all to be a rock and not to roll, and shes buying a stairway to heaven. Led Zeppelins Stairway to HeavenIts been almost a year since Marion County Sheriffs Deputies found 50-year-old Linda Cage in front of her house in the Westward Acres North Community in Dunnellon, 200 yards away from the driveway where she was shot and killed at close range. Her truck was found a few blocks away destroyed by fire. Investigators believed someone may have torched the truck to destroy evidence, but officials cannot prove it. About two weeks passed as friends and family held a memorial at the Dunnellon Little League, where more than five dozen people gathered to mourn. Its been really hard without her, everybody really misses her, said Cages daughter, Brandi Cage-Milam. Cage was a mother of three and grandmother of eight. She taught Brandis son, who has autism, and ran bases with him in the Challenger League at Dunnellon Little League every Friday night. Nicholas was Lindas life, she got really involved with him and loved him to death, CageMilam said. Anything to do with special needs, she was up right there ready to do it. She was also really big into the Special Olympics. Cage and Cage-Milam used to take Nicholas to the park and share memories and talk with each other. Recently, Cage-Milam went to court against her father fighting for custody of Nicholas. They have to go through the PPR system. Nicholass challenger team was going to be renamed the Angels in honor of Cage by STORY BY AMANDA BARNEY FOR THE RIVERLAND NEWS LINDA CAGE MURDER ONE YEAR LATER See JUSTICE page 18

This business has been a huge part of our lives and this is going to be hard for all of us, Hill explained. The Neal family built their house right behind Lombardos, so the children could be close enough to do their homework and it would be convenient to go in and out of work. Shannon, the Neals other daughter, who was still working there and was part owner, and Laura were in the second grade when Lombardos opened. We used to sit down and often do our homework with one of the many regulars who became our family, Hill said. Where Lombardos sits today was just a wooded lot that needed some fixing in 1983. Mr. Neal helped clear and hired himself out to the contractor, helping to construct the building piece by piece. I remember me and Shannon roller skating on the concrete slab, Hill said. This not only is just affecting the Neal family, but some of the regular customers as well. Weve never been close to running out of business and we really have the customers to thank, Hill said. They have really been there for us and have grown like family. Pat and Andrew Ziray have been coming to Lombardos since their opening day. Being a fan of Mr. Lombardo, who was once the chief at the Rainbow Springs Country Club, they decided to try out the family business. We love everything about this place from the food to the people and the service, the Zirays said. Everybody gets to know everybody. Tuesdays are the days we come in, and I dont know what well do on those days now. Were going to miss the food and family that we have made here. Elaine Spaulding and Lynn Anderson went to Lombardos at least once a week for nine years. I love the atmosphere, its open and friendly. They also had true homemade food, especially the pizza, both Anderson and Spaulding said. The closing was one of the biggest days for Lombardos in 28 years. It hosted a party of 26 early in the day as well as a party of 19 that night. A family from Jacksonville even drove in to enjoy their first and last meal there at Lombardos. The Neals sold the restaurant to Jim and Cecelia Warner, who plan on opening the Hitching Post Steakhouse, a steak eatery. This will be the Warners fifth restaurant who decided it was time to get back into the business after they retired from their last in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. After three years, we were bored and had to get back into the business, they said. Tim Neal will be staying part time with the Hitching Post; however, Jeanne plans on taking it easy and has decided to stay at the house and take up painting. It really is an end to an era, Hill said. Many customers have been coming in every week ordering the same meal, sitting at the same table. They have watched me and my sister Shannon grow up in this place. This is truly a significant event, and Lombardos will be dearly missed. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, August 2, 2012 C h i n a H o u s e C h i n a H o u s e China House D INING T O G O OR E AT -I N (352) 522-0008 (Next to Subway) 000C700 11352 N.

Cpl. Bruce Arnold and Officer Adam Robinson arrived on scene at which time Miley asked Barley if he would participate in Field Sobriety Exercises, to which he agreed. The report stated Barley told authorities multiple times during the One-Leg Stand Exercise he would not be able to perform the request. He did not provide a reason why, the report stated, which noted Barley was unable to maintain balance during the instruction phase and swayed side to side. Cpl. Arnold attempted to explain the Walk and Turn Exercise, to which Barley stated during the instruction phase, cant do it as he used his arms to maintain balance, the report stated. Cpl. Arnold again attempted to explain the exercise, at which time Barley stated he could not perform the exercise. According to the report, during the Finger to Nose exercise, Barley was not paying attention to instructions and began the exercise prior to being asked by authorities. Barley missed touching the tip of his finger to the tip of his nose on four attempts, touching the pads of his fingers to the bottom of his nose. On his fifth try, Barley used his left finger, stopped and asked, what do you mean right? He then corrected himself using his right finger. After failing the Rhomberg Alphabet Exercise, Barley was able to pass the Rhomberg Balance Exercise, the report stated. According to the report, after the exercises had been completed, authorities informed Barley he was being charged with driving under the influence. Miley secured Barleys left hand in a handcuff, at which time Barley resisted by pulling away. Arnold and Robinson assisted in trying to secure Barley, who continued to aggressively resist and would not put his right arm behind his back. After being advised multiple times to stop resisting or he would be tased, the report stated, Barley refused to comply with instructions and continued to resist further, at which time Miley unholstered his Taser and stunned Barley in the middle of the back. Arnold and Miley assisted Barley to the ground, at which time he was secured in handcuffs. Barley, according to the report, told authorities he was going to shoot us with the gun in his pocket. Authorities noted in the report there no weapon found on Barley. Barley was transported to the Marion County Jail, where he refused to provide a sample of his breath or urine; however, he did provide a sample of his blood. His bond was set at $1,000. He made bail Thursday. Melissa J. Davis, 18, of Dunnellon, was charged July 28 with failure to appear, possession of drug paraphernalia. at Lake Weir, North Marion, Osceola and Belleview middle schools during his lengthy tenure. Smallridge praised the work done by former Principal Jane Ashman, who he said really instilled a sense of team in the faculty and staff. Its really great, said Smallridge, who has a bachelors degree in mathematics education. They view this as a team here. I want to come here and be a part of the team and be accepted by the team. This is a phenomenal group of people. With the school year nearing it start date, (students report Aug. 18), Smallridge said he no has plans to make any significant changes to what are already in place. Well asses what are strengths and what needs to be tweaked, explained Smallridge, who completed his graduate studies at the University of Florida. Well probably fine tune a few things, but the folks here have done a great job preparing for the upcoming school year. Smallridges main task the past three weeks has been to fill 11 teaching vacancies. Thats been the No. 1 priority, he said. His long-term goals are to expand on the current advanced classes and see what can be added to what is already offered to current and future students. I think theres room to offer more, said the married father of two boys, ages 15 and 11. Smallridge said hes an upbeat, positive person. When I meet with the staff before the start of school, the one thing I want to challenge everyone to is make a positive difference in someones life everyday, he explained. Smallridge called the upcoming school year a learning experience, from becoming acquainted with the faculty and staff, to parents and students to the community. Im really excited, he said. Ive made a lot of stops along the way, Im eager to make this the last stop on the ride.

River views Give the middle class a break; dont vote with the pack, guysThe U.S. Senate has voted to let the Bush era tax cuts for the wealthy expire, but because the middle class is hurting right now, the tax cuts for them is to be extended. Now the bill must pass the House. Republicans have been voting in a block to save millionaires money, but taxes are at a 30-year low, even with the expiration of the tax cuts for those making more than $250,000. Congressmen Nugent and Stearns should show leadership and not vote with the pack. Let them truly represent us. Drollene P. BrownMorriston Enough of inadequate leadership in Dunnellon City Hall What we have is arrogance, not leadership, for the people. So what we have to do in a short time is find a candidate suitable, knowledgeable and for sensible leadership, not one to put us in bankruptcy to have secrets such as whom is responsible for wasting money; to refuse to answer that or why they are not available and why, when on city payroll they are not in. How often does this happen? Sorry Judy Larsen, our leaders do not acknowledge us long-time residents any more. We use to have an open and honest communication. More wasted money can be seen as we have had many heavy down pours lately and are on water restrictions. Our yards show it. So why are the sprinklers on everyday in heavy rains watering the medians? Learn to set the timers to shut off when the streets and parking lots are flooded. Do we the people pay outrageous rates for that, too? Oh just say no City Hall. Remember where the revenue comes from. Oops, thats right, bad loans that City Manager Lisa Algiere is handling. How did you get where you are? You are batting zero with the people. Your non-concern about the outrageous charges residents and renters have to pay is costing us plenty. New rates for those that are trying to start a small business are too much, so they move on to another area. Ms. Algiere have you or the mayor watched on TV, reports about Detroit, Mich., the plight of the decaying city. Well I am hearing more residents saying and doing what we Detroit did. Last one out turn out the lights. I am sure officials would send us bills for moving out. Yes, you are Politicians are a unique breed of folk 80 years young, and still counting I guess people dont celebrate birthdays after 60. Either that or there just isnt a big enough demand for party decorations for the elderly. And with people living longer these days that doesnt make sense. We tried to get some for my dads big th birthday party and there was nothing higher than 60. We even checked the larger stores in Tampa and nothing. Sad isnt it? Oh and the birthday cards were all serious. We found a few funny ones at Spencers in the mall, but didnt think they were appropriate. So we had to make due with home-made signs with the number all over them. We let the younger grandchildren and greatgrandchildren decorate one all by themselves. We decided to be very festive and cheerful and put red, blue and yellow balloons everywhere. My daughters mother-in-law had the great idea of buying picture frames in all sizes and displaying photos of my dad in different stages of his life. That was a huge success. Our dad had actually mentioned way back in January that it would be nice to have a party for his 80th. Neither of his parents made the huge milestone, and he was proud that he had. My dad is still healthy, vibrant and happy. What could make us want to celebrate more than that? Nothing too big, he said. How can you throw such a special event and not make it big? So we started planning. We decided to split it three ways between my brothers and me. We wanted it to be special, but not extravagant. That pretty much sums up my dad, too. We split up the duties. I was in charge of the place, the food, the music, the memory book, the gifts, the invitations and the cake. My brothers helped make the decisions. I actually put one of my daughters in charge of decorations and one in charge of putting the memory book together so that helped a bunch. We decided to have it at the Rainbow Lakes Clubhouse instead of at our house. After shopping around we decided to let Skeets cater the event, which turned out to be a good decision and barbeque is my dads favorite. Only next time I will remember not to count children when you give a head count. They dont stop to eat anyway and their portions dont count for much. We had leftovers for days, but were not complaining. The cake was a work of art. I found the picture on the internet and I have to say Wal-Mart did an excellent job.

To the taxpayers of the City of Dunnellon: The recent barrage of letters to the Riverland News from residents of Rainbow Springs are full of exaggeration and half-truths. MYTH: Greenlight Communications Dunnellon is being subsidized/paid for by Rainbow Springs water rates and the 25 percent surcharge. FACT: The tiered water rates paid by the Rainbow Springs residents are only 80 percent of what the residents of Dunnellon, Rio Vista and Julliette Falls pay. The tiered water rates are a requirement of our Water Management District in order to encourage conservation of this precious resource. The 25 percent surcharge goes into a reserve fund to pay for any major repairs that may arise in the 25year-old water system. When purchased by the city of Dunnellon, there was no reserve. After all, the residents of Dunnellon should not be expected to pay for any major repairs. MYTH: The city of Dunnellon does not need its own police and fire department. FACT: The police and fire departments in Dunnellon keep our residents and visitors safe. The response times of both are far less than our cash strapped Marion County Sheriffs Department or our Marion County Fire Department. In fact, our police department has been deputized by Sheriff Ed Dean so that they can back up the county when needed both on the river and on land. Also, having a local police and fire department helps keep our insurance rates down. MYTH: Rainbow Springs has no voice in Dunnellon government. FACT: In a recent letter to Rainbow Springs residents, which has been widely circulated throughout our community, Lynn Black writes: With the recent death of Fred Stark, there will be three open positions on the City Council in Dunnellon. The letter goes on to encourage Rainbow Springs residents to recruit possible candidates for City Council and promises to back these candidates financially. The question is, Dunnellon: Do the taxpaying citizens of the city of Dunnellon really want their city run by Rainbow Springs residents? These residents have vowed to file a lawsuit against the city for our punitive tiered water rates. They have threatened and bullied our local businesses who would dare to sign up for Greenlight high speed internet and video. They preach water conservation while Do taxpayers want residents of Rainbow Springs in charge? I ts been a few years, to say the least, since I became a registered voter. I recall the excitement I had about being able to register prior to my senior year in high school, I was even prouder of the fact I was the lone senior in my class of voting age to take the time to register to vote. When I was 18, MTV was instrumental in encouraging the younger generation to Rock the Vote. I can recall when it hosted Bill Clinton in an informative, casual discussion with peers my own age at the time and how I was impressed he took the time to talk to the younger populace. I also remember the first time I meet a bignamed politician. Long-time Republican Sen. Bob Dole was on the campaign trail throughout the state of Kansas, encouraging Kansans to keep him in office. He came through the stands at a high school football game shaking babies and kissing hands. Oh, scratch that, he was kissing babies and shaking hands. Nowadays, I wouldnt be surprised if it was a little of both. He made his way toward the group of friends I was perched in the stands with. I remember it being a somewhat chilly night and one of the high school girlfriends I had was snuggled up next to me when I prodded her to stand. We all extended our hands to greet the World War II hero and shake our congressmans hand. I stuck my left hand out, yet he pulled his back. Sen. Dole proceeded to engage me in conversation. Youre not old enough to vote, are you? he asked, perhaps realizing I had not shaved in a week, not because of an unkempt beard but because I didnt need to shave that often. Yes I am, I stated proudly, as my friends cackled in the background, knowingly because they knew I could vote and none of them could. Well thats super, the apparently distinguished senator said. I hope you remember to vote for me in November. I think my jaw hit the ground some 50 feet below me before I uttered my last comment to the pompous, distinguished senator from the Land of Oz. Dont count on it, I said in a matter of fact tone, knowing full well this guy had it in the bag and my vote wasnt going to make or break his re-election efforts. Now, Im not sure if he was shocked or just completely bewildered at what I had said or had the courage to do so. Well why wouldnt you vote for me? he asked, dumbfounded. You refused to shake my hand, I told him. Well you didnt look old enough to vote, he countered. Now, at this point in time, I See LETTERS page 5 See TAXPAYERS page 5 See JERSEY page 5 Lynne McAndrew Audrey Beem Jeff Bryan Editor See Other page 10

that badly thought of. Leave Rainbow Springs and Lake Tropicana alone or change the voting restrictions. I firmly believe if your extracting funds from them then they have rights to vote and run for office. Anybody see vehicles servicing Dunnellon residents with out of state license plates? I really mean out of state. Yes, the city didnt even look within Florida. And, as usual, failed to give jobs to our unemployed residents or neighboring counties. These out-of-staters are being paid New York wages. Yet, they are extracting our nickels, dimes and pennies left and right and leaving our people unemployed. Hey, this truck only had one sign on it to publicize whom and what service they are performing. State law is signs on both sides, state license numbers on those signs and contractors identity, or are we privilege in this too as a city? I pray for a good bye from Mayor (Fred) Ward and for Ms. Algiere to follows. And Penny Fleeger what have you done? Do you not hear one thing you have voted for or against? Hopefully, you all will be on the highway out of this town before it is in total ruins. Mary HackerDunnellon they drop wells in their yard in order to quench their thirsty St. Augustine grass. One resident yelled at a city council meeting: Its our water. Finally, another mission, as stated in Mr. Blacks letter to the Rainbow Springs residents, with control of the City Council recent decisions could be reversed and the city manager fired. As one member of the City Council, I see Ms. Algiere as the driving force behind helping our city to grow and be a place where business can thrive. This will keep our taxes down and our residents employed. This year, our proposed ad valorem tax rate has decreased. This is thanks to her leadership and the commitment of city staff to providing quality services with minimum cost. In todays economy, that is a difficult task. Ms. Algiere is working on a 170-acre recreation complex for our city. A recreation committee has been working on this addition to our park system. And by the way, we welcomed requests from Rainbow Springs residents for tennis courts and other amenities. Thats what good neighbors do for each other. Ms. Algiere is constantly in touch with businesses around the country extolling the benefits of locating their green jobs right here in Dunnellon. You would be surprised at how many things are in the works as we speak. Also, Ms. Algiere has been working with the city engineers on streetscaping on West Pennsylvania Avenue. She has worked tirelessly with The Boys & Girls Club to help facilitate a new building for the children of our community. These are just a few examples of her efforts to make Dunnellon a familyoriented place to live. So Dunnellon residents, all 1,733 of you, when you vote in November remember what I have said. We are very fortunate to have such a proactive city manager in our corner. She is committed to lowering taxes in our city. I have lived in this city for 11 years and if I have learned anything, it is that we dont appreciate nonresident, non-taxpayers telling us what we do and dont need. Lynne B. McAndrew, a Dunnellon resident, currently holds Seat 3 on the Dunnellon City Council. She has served on the Council since 2008. As the July 26 Riverland News Editorial so well reasoned, it is time for new leadership and direction in Dunnellon City governance. The change I envision calls for recognition of mutual shared interest and cooperation between all Dunnellon area residents. We all want the best professional governmental services provided in the most efficient manner. All area residents want to be treated fairly on economic and representative issues. The clear obstacle to all this is the present Dunnellon City government. The first, vital step for change is for three motivated, civic-minded and honest citizens to enter the upcoming city elections in November. Putting parochial viewpoints behind the new commission should explore all options to serve the public good. The status quo cannot be maintained and voters must give the new leaders a mandate to make to difficult decisions. Time is of the essence before we fall off the financial cliff. I offer the following ideas that should be considered, debated and used as a platform to start the dialogue for a crucial election. A very detailed and unbiased professional study done about the feasibility of merging Dunnellon City operations into county jurisdiction. My personal opinion is that the entire city should be dissolved and all functions absorbed by the county. The study could provide the roadmap to this end. Bear in mind, paid consultants are like paid social companions, they will give you the results you want if you pay them enough. Let the math and economic facts point to the direction needed. Do not base decisions on visions, desires and hopes, which is what got us in this mess. This is where the political discussions should start. Greenlight Communications should be audited and the future of this unneeded operation carefully explored. Forgive my cynical nature, but the 824 individual customers recently reported seemed unrealistically high. Are these individual paying customers or multipoint hookups? The city should have been proud of that high penetration rate and certainly not try to hide it from the owners of Greenlight the Dunnellon taxpayer. Requiring a reputable newspaper to secure legal help to obtain a simple, public record fact shows the current secret, adversarial mentality the city has toward the public. I would be satisfied if the county took over the Dunnellon/Rainbow Springs Utilities. It would be equitable if all Dunnellon utility customers paid existing county rates. The Star Banner on July 28, reported that county water rates will be reduced by 7 percent and wastewater rates by 11 percent in October 2012. The county charges all customers the same rates. The county never applies the 25 percent surcharge to newly acquired customers as Dunnellon did even though they could legally. The county utility company has a better credit bond rating based on its efficient, credit worthy record. Compare that with Dunnellon. Savings would be forthcoming if the county managed our utility. I proffer that city business and private residents would benefit from county governance. In short, to Dunnellon city business and residents, what would you lose if Dunnellon operations were replaced by the county? I believe just a level of unneeded cost and government. This needs to be considered in upcoming election. Dunnellon cannot continue on its present course. The upcoming November election is a time for Dunnellon area residents to unite, to put Dunnellon on a new course. There should be no us or them mentality, there is only we. I am fervently hoping that three good, concerned citizens will step forward to serve their community.Steve Swett is an 18-year Rainbow Springs resident and retired Dunnellon postmaster.

The family, including extended relatives, totals around 46 people a party all in itself. Add in a few old friends, some guys my dad worked with more than 20 years ago, neighbors and their families, and we had gathered a pretty good crowd. When we were kids growing up, our house was the hangout. My mom loved to cook and loved to have her children where she could see them, so we were usually the host family. So, of course, we had to invite the old hangout crowd, which included Keith Caton, Starr Fleming and a few out of town guests. Everybody took turns talking about my dad, reminiscing about old times and telling funny tales. My dad tried thanking everybody and declaring what a lucky man he is several times, but got choked up each time. The memory book turned out really nice. Everybody at the party contributed a page, plus we had a personalized page done by each member of the family. It will be something my dad can take out and read over and over again. The day of the party was busy with everyone running around gathering coolers and plenty of ice, more beer and soda, blowing up balloons, decorating, picking up the cake and, finally, going home to get ready. It was time for the big party. Put it all together and you have good friends, delicious food, mucho laughs and a great time. I am sure it will be one of my dads fondest memories.

R IVERLAND EDUCATION 6 Riverland News, Thursday, August 2, 2012 Muschamp counting on former DHS star Ronald Powell ranged across the field looking to make a tackle, but he got to the sideline a little late. As he planted his foot in the white paint, something went wrong. He fell to the ground, clutching his knee as trainers rushed over. The crowd of 38,100 in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium fell to a quiet whisper as it quickly realized the spring star was down on the turf. Two days later, the University of Florida announced that Powell had torn his ACL in the non-contact injury and would miss four to six months recovering from the injury, likely leaving the Gators without their starting buck heading into the season. Now Will Muschamp and the Gators are counting on a guy who had his own injury problems last year to fill the void. Lerentee (McCray) was a guy that was banged up a little bit last year, Muschamp said about the former Dunnellon High School standout. Can play both outside linebacker positions, can give us some edge rush in our four-down package. Muschamp has voiced a lot of confidence in the fifthyear senior. McCray played in nine games in 2011, starting five of them. However, he missed four of the last five games after suffering a shoulder injury.

Dunnellon residents compete in annual Michigan canoe race I t was the ride of a life for 62year-old Larry Fredrick and 67-year-old Lee Short. The Dunnellon area residents competed in the 65th annual AuSable River Canoe Marathon Saturday and Sunday in Grayling, Mich., in the senior division. More than 60 teams participated in the longtime event. Teams entered from as far away as Canada and England. Among the number of teams who raced are: 15 Mixed Teams (men and women), and 11 Senior Teams (both 50 years and older). Additionally, there was eight Masters Teams (both 40 years and older), one womens team, and seven Rookie Teams (which consists of first-time paddlers). The AuSable River Canoe Marathon presented by Consumers Energy is the roughest, non-stop canoe race in North America. The racecourse runs almost the entire length of the AuSable River, 120 miles. Paddlers begin by running LeMans style, carrying their canoes on their shoulders near The Old AuSable Fly Shop with thousands of spectators cheering them on. Prior to the start of the marathon, the paddlers were introduced. For Fredrick, this was his fifth year competing; but for Short, who grew up in the area and had family members participate in the event, it was his first time competing. Every year after you compete, you think, Oh this is my last year doing it, Frederick said. But after a couple days go by, you want to compete again and then start preparing for the year to come. Fredrick and Short prepared themselves on the Withlacoochee River every week. On Sunday morning, the Black Bear Bicycle Tour departed for Oscoda in time to catch the paddlers at the end of their overnight adventure. The race ended in Oscoda, Mich., on the shore of Lake Huron. The river has about six dams to get around and the racers must pick up their canoes on their shoulders and run across the dam. The canoes that the racers use are made out of carbon fiber and weigh about 25 to 30 pounds empty. During racing days, due to the water and supplies they had to carry it weighs between 35 and 40 pounds. It gets pretty intense having to get up and down, Frederick said. Plus the temperature outAMANDA BARNEY For the Riverland News See PADDLE page 7 Washington, Jones, Thomas partiicpate in annual football camp JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See TIGERS page 7

the canoes beings it was 48 to 50 degrees, said Fredrick. It is also reported to be the toughest spectator sport in the world. Spectators cheered and motivated their favorite teams throughout the night. They must find access to the river in total darkness, navigate among thousands of other fans in order to get a glimpse of their favorite team and then move to another location. These fans did this for 14 to 19 hours as the contestants moved down river. New opportunities to view the entered field of contestants included the third day of Time Trials July 25 in Grayling and the Dash for Cash an up-to 64-team, bracketstyle, single-elimination, drag-race-style event for cash prizes Tuesday in Oscoda. From July 24 to 26, there was sprint races, which placed the canoers in the big race Saturday and Sunday. Short and Fredrick ran 120 miles in 17 hours, 1 minute, placing 33rd out of 70 teams. The main thing in this contest is to stay calm. It also depends on how fast you get out of your canoe and run across the dams and get back into them, thats what makes the difference between first and second, Fredrick said. In the long haul, though, I believe we did really good and cant wait to get ready for next year. linebacker, McCray didnt have a huge impact. He finished the year with 24 tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble. However, he had arguably his best game of the season playing buck against Auburn, a game Powell missed due to injury. He finished with four tackles, two tackles for a loss and a quarterback hurry. He played (buck) last year for us and did a really nice job, Muschamp said. Ronald was injured for the Auburn game. He came in and played very well at that position for him in that game. McCray actually looked much more comfortable at buck than he did at strongside linebacker. Playing closer to the line of scrimmage, he was able to get more pressure on the quarterback. If anything, he might even be more suited to the position than Powell. At 6-foot-2, 247 pounds, he has ideal size for the position. But Florida will also have a hole to fill at strongside linebacker if McCray slides to buck. No matter how you slice it, Powells injury means someone else will have to step up for the Gators. I think the wildcard there a little bit is Neiron Ball, Muschamp said. Hes a guy well play at (strong-side linebacker), he and Darrin Kitchens, see if those guys can continue to develop, which we think they can, to be really good players. Ball, of course, has been out of football for a year, so counting on any contributions from him could be a bit risky. Kitchens, on the other hand, played well in limited time at the end of the 2011 season. Hes probably the odds-on favorite to win the starting strong-side linebacker spot. If that happens, Muschamp thinks McCray should be able to slip in at the buck for a seamless transition until Powell is fully recovered. We can just take Lerentee, move him fulltime at the buck position, Muschamp said. I feel very comfortable about Lerentee. Powells injury is still a blow to the Gators, though. Florida expected to have a little more depth in the front seven this year, and being without Powell for any extended period of time will hurt that outlook. McCray isnt letting himself or the defense use that as an excuse after lack of depth was cited all too often last year in the teams struggles. The depth played a major concern, but as a football player, you have to find it in your heart to just come out and give it everything youve got, he said. Thats not really much of an excuse for what happened last year.Thomas Goilkdkamp is a staff writer for GatorBait. net, a sister publication of the Riverland News.

The fifth-year senior is 6-foot-2, 247 pounds. It was awesome, said Thomas, who started every game at center as a freshman. Ive been in The Swamp for games, but never on the field. Being on the field puts it in perspective. The soon-to-be sophomore said he learned plenty about what it he needs to do at the prep level to make it to the next level. I just need to continue doing my work in the classroom and I need to get stronger and faster on the field, said Thomas, who posted a 4.0 grade point average his first year in high school. Washington, a senior, who will back in a Tigers uniform this season after having competed for West Port a year ago, said it was an eye-opening experience. I went in with my head straight on, said Washington, who will help anchor the defensive line for Dunnellon this season. I feel the experience was helpful, because I know I just need to stay focused and continue working hard in the classroom, too. Being able to finish his prep career where it started is significant, Washington said. Im home, he explained. Coach Beasley is like a father figure to me, hes a great man. Jones said he learned a significant amount during the camp, hosted annually by the Gators football program. For one, the experience was amazing, the junior defensive/offensive lineman said. It showed me what I need to do the next couple of years to get to that level. I learned not only do I need to be a leader on the field, but in the classroom and the weight room. Jones credited the Florida football staff for its motivational techniques, too. They taught me its best to get mad, mad if I feel tired or need a break, he explained. If it works for those guys, it should work for us too. Dunnellon begins fall practice Monday in preparation for its annual Fall Classic against Lecanto, which is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25, at Ned Love Field. The summer has been really good, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said. Theyve embraced how to work. They get it. They understand how to prepare their bodies for the season.

I t was just another day and I was indulging a carefree moment of complaining about the weather. I cant believe its so hot today, I muttered. I thought I was talking to myself but obviously, I had an audience. Have you ever said or did something not realizing somebody was watching you? Every time I am in a restaurant eating, I endeavor to remember there is an audience and try my very best not to spill the soup on my lap. Although, I must admit that that kind of lap dance always gets a vigorous round of applause from the audience. Dont ask me how I know. I thought in my own special way of thinking that I was alone only to find out the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was within earshot of my remarks. I must say she is rather remarkable. Those earshot moments are quite extensive. I will not go as far as to say that she can read my mind, although I think she can, but she seems to know what I am thinking even before I go through the effort and labor of thinking. I do not know why I even spend the energy thinking on my own. Even when I do think up a thought of my own and go so far as to express it I am always challenged. The challenge is, do not think that way. The challenger is my wife. Life would be so much easier, not to mention less stressful, if I just would quit thinking my own thoughts. It is when I am thinking my own thoughts that I get into trouble. Life would be so much easier if I allowed someone else to think my thoughts for me. After all, isnt that why men get married?

And dont you know that its supposed to be hot during the summer? I did know that but it did not make the heat any more bearable. Then she said something that rather confused me. I have been confused before. Confusion is a familiar territory to me. But this confusion was different. If, my wife said rather sternly, you cant stand the heat get out of the kitchen. What the kitchen had to do with it being hot outside is way beyond my pay scale. There was a brief moment when I almost threw caution to the wind and asked my wife what she meant by that comment. Boy, am I glad I didnt. I make it a practice to stay as far away from the kitchen as possible, especially when my wife is present. There is something about a kitchen that makes me rather nervous to the point of dropping her favorite cup and having it break all over the floor. I stay out of the kitchen heat or no heat. If I remember correctly, my wife said as she stared at me rather intently, a few months ago you were complaining about how cold it was. She was right. It was not but a few months ago, I was complaining that it was so cold outside that I just could not bear it. Youre going to have to make up your mind. That was a serious admonition from her. For her to tell me to make up my mind sends some very contradictory messages to me. After all, she is forever making up my mind for me. She seems to know exactly what I want at the restaurant and before I can get a word in edgewise or otherwise, she has ordered for me. Im not complaining. She knows exactly what I want. Either, she continued, its too hot or its too cold. Now make up your mind. I smiled demurely in her direction and nodded in the affirmative. Not wanting to further the conversation I whispered very gently, Yes, dear. It concluded our tte--tte. Later on in the evening, we were watching television. It was the local news and special report of the day had to do with the record heat wave across our country. Its been a long time, the weatherman said, since weve seen temperatures this high. Boy, is it hot out there. I glanced in her direction as covertly as possible and noticed she was staring at me, just daring me to say something. There is a time to say something and then sometimes something should not be said at all. I concealed my infectious grin as much as possible knowing that someone was watching me. Under my breath I whispered, I cant believe its so hot today. After all, it is summer and it is supposed to be hot. I just believe that everybody has the right to complain about the weather. I also believe that some people have the right not to hear me complain about the weather. It is a well-noted mark of wisdom to know when to speak and when not to speak. Solomon in the Old Testament had it right when he said, Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding (Proverbs 17:28 KJV). So, this is summer, but you did not hear it from me. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P.O. Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

began to think pushing the issue was a moot point. Yet, there was something overly funny about his feelings being hurt. I took his bait. Why would it matter if I looked old enough, because Im a future voter, arent you supposed to shake everyones hand, be encouraging to taxpayers? I asked, most certainly spreading the sarcasm thickly. Well, uh, well, he sputtered. I wasnt sure if he was confused or doing his best impersonation of former President Richard Nixon, because I am certain both knew each other since they were a part of the Republican Party. Well kids, Ive gotta run, dont forget to tell your parents to vote for me in the November election, he said, as he was whisked away by some men in suits, no doubt his security entourage. My friends all burst into laughter upon his departure as I muttered a few obscenities together. What a jerk, I told my friends. Dude, one buddy said, are you really that upset about him not shaking your hand? No, but it was about principles, I reminded them. None of you can vote, hes at a high school football game, not an old folks home. He shouldnt be surprised if he bumps into a few people who arent old enough to vote. They agreed, and moments later we saw him kissing a baby. Perhaps it was that experience that soured me when it comes to meeting those seeking political office. Now I know there are some folks who are doing their civic duty and seeking to hold office. Now I realize being the editor of a local newspaper Ill meet most politicians. Most cannot remember my name albeit it is tricky when they shake my hand. Now there are a couple of folks who do remember my name, and strike up a personal conversation leaving their political aspirations and campaign speech in their pocket. I find that to be more personable, when they just ask how youre doing and engage in small talk. Theyre the kind of folks I wouldnt mind voting for. Either way, I havent had the heart to tell most of them I wont cast my ballot for em. They simply dont reside in my county.

In our last story, Barry (Barrymore Theodore) Bear missed the train to Boston with his parents. He was off chasing a butterfly and was left behind. Barry followed the train tracks into a large city and spent the night in a huge department store. Thats where Barry met Jack Bunny who had long, furry ears. Jack also had big front teeth and could not say his Ls. The two of them played all through the store and quickly became best friends. he sun came up to find Barry and Jack sleeping, snuggled together with the stuffed toys. Playing all night in the store had worn them out! Barry was dreaming about his mother. She was making his very favorite foodpancakes. He pictured the melting butter sliding across the steaming pancakes. Barry loved honey. He could taste the honey as he poured a huge amount all over the butter, the pancakes, the plate . and all over the table. OOPS! said Barry in his sleep. He wished he could have pancakes and honey every day. Barry woke with a start when he heard Jack yell, Now cut that out! Wet woose! The store had opened, and two naughty boys were pulling Jacks ears. Just as Barry turned to help Jack, a loud, booming voice rang out, That will be enough of that, boys! The boys quickly let go of Jacks ears and ran. The big voice belonged to Mr. Winklesneezer, a radio announcer, who was shopping in the store. When Mr. Winklesneezer spoke, everyone listened! Barry rushed over to Jack and asked, Are you all right? Jack just smiled his toothy grin. Barry knew he was okay, but he gave him a big bear hug anyway. T by Bill Stephani Be looking for more adventures with Barry and his friends on the Just Kidding page!

Fresh or canned fruit (well drained) One tablespoon of lemon juice or ascorbic acid (for each quart of fruit) Baking sheet, blender, heat-resistant plastic wrap, masking tape, oven Get Set . Some steps may require adult help. Preheat oven to 140 degrees. Go! Prepare the pan. Turn baking sheet over, bottom up. Cover bottom with plastic wrap. Secure wrap to sheet by taping down edges with masking tape (this prevents edges of wrap from pulling up while fruit is drying). Prepare the fruit. Pure fruit and lemon juice or ascorbic acid together in blender. Pour pure about 1/4" thick over prepared baking sheet. Leave a oneinch border around the edge of the sheet. Dry the fruit. Place baking sheet in oven, leaving the door open at least two inches. Dry until pure is leathery but still pliable and not sticky to the touch. This process takes several hours. When leather is done, remove from oven. Let cool.

Traveling Beach Ball A circle is formed with players facing the center in the water. Players stand close together but do not join hands. A beach ball is passed from hand to hand either to the left or right. One player swims around the outside of the circle and tries to touch the player who has the ball. When the swimmer succeeds, they change places, and a new player begins swimming around outside of the circle. Game continues until each player has had a turn.

In the 2013 season, it will be dedicated to her. It was hard this year looking over and not seeing her, but she was in spirit with the team, McCormick said. Margie Rosenthal Frank knew Cage since the second grade and grew to become best friends with her. Throughout the years, we have stayed in touch. I actually just went to her 50th birthday party, Frank said. She was like a loving angel, she was just a really sweet and fun person and Ill never forget the memories we shared. I remember on Lindas 50th birthday, she was going down the water slide and she got stuck and couldnt get up, it was so funny, McCormick recalled. According to Detective Rhonda Stroup, the lead investigator on the case, authorities havent found anything new that they hadnt found in the past. No new leads have presented themselves, she said, while no new evidence has popped up either. They did find out that this was not just a random act. I feel sorry for the family, Detective Stroup said. It is very frustrating that it is taking this long, but I am trying everything in my power to find the guy who murdered this woman and one day there will be justice. A $1,000 reward is still being offered for anyone who reports any evidence: witnessed, seen or heard about Cages death. She was always happy and always smiling, Cage-Milam said. There is nothing she wouldnt do for her kids and especially grandchildren. She was just an awesome woman, I wish I could just describe more as to the woman she was because words just dont describe her. On Cages Facebook page, many of her friends and family posted on her wall describing their feeling about how she is missed and still loved. In a post July 21, Jessica Shurlock wrote: Dear Linda (Mamma), I know you are in a better place now, but you are TRUELY missed here. I wish and feel guilty for not seeing you before you left and went to heaven. Your daughter has & will always be my best friend. I may not see her all the time, talk to her every day, or can always make it to things she needs me for! But I'm always here for her, and her family. And on Aug 3rd, I'm making one promise, to always remember you and dedicate that day to you. You were always like a mother to me. I love you, and miss you mamma. P.S. I know you hear this I'm writing, and I also want to make another promise ... I will always be here for Brandi, to the best that I can! Love always & forever. The family will be hosting a barbecue called Celebration of Life on Aug. 3 in dedication of Cage. She was more than my mom, she was my best friend and now its like I have nobody to talk to or get advice from, CageMilam said. Somebody had to see or hear something and we are waiting for the day they step up and say it. I am praying that somebody helps bring justice to not only a friend, but a mother, sister and grandmother of many! 18 Riverland News, Thursday, August 2, 2012 000C5R4 000A8NZ 000C5R2 000C5QY 0 0 0 B U S 5 5185 A W.

Report: Police tase suspect resisting arrest A male driver suspected of driving under the influence July 25 was tased after resisting arrest, a police report stated. According to the arrest report, Kevin M. Barley, 39, of Williston, was charged with driving under the influence and resisting an officer without violence after Office Mike Miley observed a 2003 Ford F-150, black in color, driving northbound on U.S. 41. The report stated Miley noted the vehicle failed to maintain travel in the inside lane, crossing over the yellow line and almost driving onto the median. At this time, the report stated, Miley conducted a traffic stop in the Rainbow Square Plaza. The report stated Miley made contact with Barley and noticed he had watery eyes and he could smell the odor of alcohol emanating from Barleys breath. Miley informed Barley the reason he stopped him was because of his inability to maintain travel within his lane of traffic. Barley spontaneously stated, Ive had a few beers at the bar. I only live a mile away, cant you just cut a country boy a break? According to the report, Williston man faces two charges, including DUI Kevin M.

JEFF BRYAN Riverland News District chooses principal for DMS Smallridge aims to make markEnthusiasm exudes from the words pouring from Delbert Smallridges mouth, the earto-ear grin he sports tells one hes more than excited about his newest challenge. The recently named principal at Dunnellon Middle School has been on the job for two-plus weeks; however, he said hes learned the most important lesson thus far about being a part of the school. There is such a sense of community here, said Smallridge, who has served as a vice principal in the Marion County School District for the past 11 years, most recently at Lake Weir Middle School for five years. Thats what I learned the first day I was here. That is probably what has me the most excited for the upcoming year, the sense of community that has been fostered here. If theres any apprehension, though, one surely doesnt notice it. It will certainly be a different role than Im accustomed to having, its going to be a year of learning, said Smallridge, who enters his 23rd year in the MCPS system, his 24th year overall in education. The University of Central Florida graduate is no stranger to life in academic halls of middle schools. Its where hes spent his entire career in the district. Smallridge taught Longtime Italian eatery, Lombardos, closes its doors Family-owned restaurants are hard to find these days and one of Dunnellons familyowned restaurants has come to an end. Tim and Jeanne Neal have owned and operated Lombardos Restaurant just north of the intersection of State Road 40 and U.S. 41, near Rainbow Lakes Estates since 1984. But after 28 years of continuous ownership, they have sold the business and the last day was Saturday, July 28. Weve seen places and people come and go, and while it has been a constant struggle to make ends meet, Lombardos survived, said their daughter, Laura Hill. Tim and Jeanne Neal decided it was time to sell the business after Jeanne came home from work with swollen feet. Jeanne was diagnosed with breast cancer four years ago and had a heart attack earlier this year. Old age catches up with you. We just decided it was time to shut down the business and move on to something else, said Jeanne. Jeanne has been in the restaurant business ever since she can remember. Her stepfather and mother owned a restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, and her stepdad, Jack Lombardo, taught her the recipes Lombardos uses now. Jeanne and Tim decided to name the restaurant Lombardos after her JOE DUNAWAY/For the Riverland NewsLaura Hill, left, and Tim Neal prepare garlic rolls in the kitchen Saturday at Lombardos Restaurant.

Who shines white light and wants to show, how everything still turns to gold. And if you listen very hard the tune will come to you at last. When all is one and one is all to be a rock and not to roll, and shes buying a stairway to heaven. Led Zeppelins Stairway to HeavenIts been almost a year since Marion County Sheriffs Deputies found 50-year-old Linda Cage in front of her house in the Westward Acres North Community in Dunnellon, 200 yards away from the driveway where she was shot and killed at close range. Her truck was found a few blocks away destroyed by fire. Investigators believed someone may have torched the truck to destroy evidence, but officials cannot prove it. About two weeks passed as friends and family held a memorial at the Dunnellon Little League, where more than five dozen people gathered to mourn. Its been really hard without her, everybody really misses her, said Cages daughter, Brandi Cage-Milam. Cage was a mother of three and grandmother of eight. She taught Brandis son, who has autism, and ran bases with him in the Challenger League at Dunnellon Little League every Friday night. Nicholas was Lindas life, she got really involved with him and loved him to death, CageMilam said. Anything to do with special needs, she was up right there ready to do it. She was also really big into the Special Olympics. Cage and Cage-Milam used to take Nicholas to the park and share memories and talk with each other. Recently, Cage-Milam went to court against her father fighting for custody of Nicholas. They have to go through the PPR system.

This business has been a huge part of our lives and this is going to be hard for all of us, Hill explained. The Neal family built their house right behind Lombardos, so the children could be close enough to do their homework and it would be convenient to go in and out of work. Shannon, the Neals other daughter, who was still working there and was part owner, and Laura were in the second grade when Lombardos opened. We used to sit down and often do our homework with one of the many regulars who became our family, Hill said. Where Lombardos sits today was just a wooded lot that needed some fixing in 1983. Mr. Neal helped clear and hired himself out to the contractor, helping to construct the building piece by piece. I remember me and Shannon roller skating on the concrete slab, Hill said. This not only is just affecting the Neal family, but some of the regular customers as well. Weve never been close to running out of business and we really have the customers to thank, Hill said. They have really been there for us and have grown like family. Pat and Andrew Ziray have been coming to Lombardos since their opening day. Being a fan of Mr. Lombardo, who was once the chief at the Rainbow Springs Country Club, they decided to try out the family business. We love everything about this place from the food to the people and the service, the Zirays said. Everybody gets to know everybody. Tuesdays are the days we come in, and I dont know what well do on those days now. Were going to miss the food and family that we have made here. Elaine Spaulding and Lynn Anderson went to Lombardos at least once a week for nine years. I love the atmosphere, its open and friendly. They also had true homemade food, especially the pizza, both Anderson and Spaulding said. The closing was one of the biggest days for Lombardos in 28 years. It hosted a party of 26 early in the day as well as a party of 19 that night. A family from Jacksonville even drove in to enjoy their first and last meal there at Lombardos. The Neals sold the restaurant to Jim and Cecelia Warner, who plan on opening the Hitching Post Steakhouse, a steak eatery. This will be the Warners fifth restaurant who decided it was time to get back into the business after they retired from their last in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. After three years, we were bored and had to get back into the business, they said. Tim Neal will be staying part time with the Hitching Post; however, Jeanne plans on taking it easy and has decided to stay at the house and take up painting. It really is an end to an era, Hill said. Many customers have been coming in every week ordering the same meal, sitting at the same table. They have watched me and my sister Shannon grow up in this place. This is truly a significant event, and Lombardos will be dearly missed. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, August 2, 2012 China House China House China House D INING T O G O OR E AT -I N (352) 522-0008 (Next to Subway) 000C700 11352 N.

Cpl. Bruce Arnold and Officer Adam Robinson arrived on scene at which time Miley asked Barley if he would participate in Field Sobriety Exercises, to which he agreed. The report stated Barley told authorities multiple times during the One-Leg Stand Exercise he would not be able to perform the request. He did not provide a reason why, the report stated, which noted Barley was unable to maintain balance during the instruction phase and swayed side to side. Cpl. Arnold attempted to explain the Walk and Turn Exercise, to which Barley stated during the instruction phase, cant do it as he used his arms to maintain balance, the report stated. Cpl. Arnold again attempted to explain the exercise, at which time Barley stated he could not perform the exercise. According to the report, during the Finger to Nose exercise, Barley was not paying attention to instructions and began the exercise prior to being asked by authorities. Barley missed touching the tip of his finger to the tip of his nose on four attempts, touching the pads of his fingers to the bottom of his nose. On his fifth try, Barley used his left finger, stopped and asked, what do you mean right? He then corrected himself using his right finger. After failing the Rhomberg Alphabet Exercise, Barley was able to pass the Rhomberg Balance Exercise, the report stated. According to the report, after the exercises had been completed, authorities informed Barley he was being charged with driving under the influence. Miley secured Barleys left hand in a handcuff, at which time Barley resisted by pulling away. Arnold and Robinson assisted in trying to secure Barley, who continued to aggressively resist and would not put his right arm behind his back. After being advised multiple times to stop resisting or he would be tased, the report stated, Barley refused to comply with instructions and continued to resist further, at which time Miley unholstered his Taser and stunned Barley in the middle of the back. Arnold and Miley assisted Barley to the ground, at which time he was secured in handcuffs. Barley, according to the report, told authorities he was going to shoot us with the gun in his pocket. Authorities noted in the report there no weapon found on Barley. Barley was transported to the Marion County Jail, where he refused to provide a sample of his breath or urine; however, he did provide a sample of his blood. His bond was set at $1,000. He made bail Thursday. Melissa J. Davis, 18, of Dunnellon, was charged July 28 with failure to appear, possession of drug paraphernalia. at Lake Weir, North Marion, Osceola and Belleview middle schools during his lengthy tenure. Smallridge praised the work done by former Principal Jane Ashman, who he said really instilled a sense of team in the faculty and staff. Its really great, said Smallridge, who has a bachelors degree in mathematics education. They view this as a team here. I want to come here and be a part of the team and be accepted by the team. This is a phenomenal group of people. With the school year nearing it start date, (students report Aug. 18), Smallridge said he no has plans to make any significant changes to what are already in place. Well asses what are strengths and what needs to be tweaked, explained Smallridge, who completed his graduate studies at the University of Florida. Well probably fine tune a few things, but the folks here have done a great job preparing for the upcoming school year. Smallridges main task the past three weeks has been to fill 11 teaching vacancies. Thats been the No. 1 priority, he said. His long-term goals are to expand on the current advanced classes and see what can be added to what is already offered to current and future students. I think theres room to offer more, said the married father of two boys, ages 15 and 11. Smallridge said hes an upbeat, positive person. When I meet with the staff before the start of school, the one thing I want to challenge everyone to is make a positive difference in someones life everyday, he explained. Smallridge called the upcoming school year a learning experience, from becoming acquainted with the faculty and staff, to parents and students to the community. Im really excited, he said. Ive made a lot of stops along the way, Im eager to make this the last stop on the ride.

River views Give the middle class a break; dont vote with the pack, guysThe U.S. Senate has voted to let the Bush era tax cuts for the wealthy expire, but because the middle class is hurting right now, the tax cuts for them is to be extended. Now the bill must pass the House. Republicans have been voting in a block to save millionaires money, but taxes are at a 30-year low, even with the expiration of the tax cuts for those making more than $250,000. Congressmen Nugent and Stearns should show leadership and not vote with the pack. Let them truly represent us. Drollene P. BrownMorristonEnough of inadequate leadership in Dunnellon City HallWhat we have is arrogance, not leadership, for the people. So what we have to do in a short time is find a candidate suitable, knowledgeable and for sensible leadership, not one to put us in bankruptcy to have secrets such as whom is responsible for wasting money; to refuse to answer that or why they are not available and why, when on city payroll they are not in. How often does this happen? Sorry Judy Larsen, our leaders do not acknowledge us long-time residents any more. We use to have an open and honest communication. More wasted money can be seen as we have had many heavy down pours lately and are on water restrictions. Our yards show it. So why are the sprinklers on everyday in heavy rains watering the medians? Learn to set the timers to shut off when the streets and parking lots are flooded. Do we the people pay outrageous rates for that, too? Oh just say no City Hall. Remember where the revenue comes from. Oops, thats right, bad loans that City Manager Lisa Algiere is handling. How did you get where you are? You are batting zero with the people. Your non-concern about the outrageous charges residents and renters have to pay is costing us plenty. New rates for those that are trying to start a small business are too much, so they move on to another area. Ms. Algiere have you or the mayor watched on TV, reports about Detroit, Mich., the plight of the decaying city. Well I am hearing more residents saying and doing what we Detroit did. Last one out turn out the lights. I am sure officials would send us bills for moving out. Yes, you are Politicians are a unique breed of folk 80 years young, and still counting Iguess people dont celebrate birthdays after 60. Either that or there just isnt a big enough demand for party decorations for the elderly. And with people living longer these days that doesnt make sense. We tried to get some for my dads big th birthday party and there was nothing higher than 60. We even checked the larger stores in Tampa and nothing. Sad isnt it? Oh and the birthday cards were all serious. We found a few funny ones at Spencers in the mall, but didnt think they were appropriate. So we had to make due with home-made signs with the number all over them. We let the younger grandchildren and greatgrandchildren decorate one all by themselves. We decided to be very festive and cheerful and put red, blue and yellow balloons everywhere. My daughters mother-in-law had the great idea of buying picture frames in all sizes and displaying photos of my dad in different stages of his life. That was a huge success. Our dad had actually mentioned way back in January that it would be nice to have a party for his 80th. Neither of his parents made the huge milestone, and he was proud that he had. My dad is still healthy, vibrant and happy. What could make us want to celebrate more than that? Nothing too big, he said. How can you throw such a special event and not make it big? So we started planning. We decided to split it three ways between my brothers and me. We wanted it to be special, but not extravagant. That pretty much sums up my dad, too. We split up the duties. I was in charge of the place, the food, the music, the memory book, the gifts, the invitations and the cake. My brothers helped make the decisions. I actually put one of my daughters in charge of decorations and one in charge of putting the memory book together so that helped a bunch. We decided to have it at the Rainbow Lakes Clubhouse instead of at our house. After shopping around we decided to let Skeets cater the event, which turned out to be a good decision and barbeque is my dads favorite. Only next time I will remember not to count children when you give a head count. They dont stop to eat anyway and their portions dont count for much. We had leftovers for days, but were not complaining. The cake was a work of art. I found the picture on the internet and I have to say Wal-Mart did an excellent job. My father was in construction for most of his life, so the cake had a hammer, a saw and a board with nails on it all done tastefully in frosting.

To the taxpayers of the City of Dunnellon: The recent barrage of letters to the Riverland News from residents of Rainbow Springs are full of exaggeration and half-truths. MYTH: Greenlight Communications Dunnellon is being subsidized/paid for by Rainbow Springs water rates and the 25 percent surcharge. FACT: The tiered water rates paid by the Rainbow Springs residents are only 80 percent of what the residents of Dunnellon, Rio Vista and Julliette Falls pay. The tiered water rates are a requirement of our Water Management District in order to encourage conservation of this precious resource. The 25 percent surcharge goes into a reserve fund to pay for any major repairs that may arise in the 25year-old water system. When purchased by the city of Dunnellon, there was no reserve. After all, the residents of Dunnellon should not be expected to pay for any major repairs. MYTH: The city of Dunnellon does not need its own police and fire department. FACT: The police and fire departments in Dunnellon keep our residents and visitors safe. The response times of both are far less than our cash strapped Marion County Sheriffs Department or our Marion County Fire Department. In fact, our police department has been deputized by Sheriff Ed Dean so that they can back up the county when needed both on the river and on land. Also, having a local police and fire department helps keep our insurance rates down. MYTH: Rainbow Springs has no voice in Dunnellon government. FACT: In a recent letter to Rainbow Springs residents, which has been widely circulated throughout our community, Lynn Black writes: With the recent death of Fred Stark, there will be three open positions on the City Council in Dunnellon. The letter goes on to encourage Rainbow Springs residents to recruit possible candidates for City Council and promises to back these candidates financially. The question is, Dunnellon: Do the taxpaying citizens of the city of Dunnellon really want their city run by Rainbow Springs residents? These residents have vowed to file a lawsuit against the city for our punitive tiered water rates. They have threatened and bullied our local businesses who would dare to sign up for Greenlight high speed internet and video. They preach water conservation while Do taxpayers want residents of Rainbow Springs in charge? Its been a few years, to say the least, since I became a registered voter. I recall the excitement I had about being able to register prior to my senior year in high school, I was even prouder of the fact I was the lone senior in my class of voting age to take the time to register to vote. When I was 18, MTV was instrumental in encouraging the younger generation to Rock the Vote. I can recall when it hosted Bill Clinton in an informative, casual discussion with peers my own age at the time and how I was impressed he took the time to talk to the younger populace. I also remember the first time I meet a bignamed politician. Long-time Republican Sen. Bob Dole was on the campaign trail throughout the state of Kansas, encouraging Kansans to keep him in office. He came through the stands at a high school football game shaking babies and kissing hands. Oh, scratch that, he was kissing babies and shaking hands. Nowadays, I wouldnt be surprised if it was a little of both. He made his way toward the group of friends I was perched in the stands with. I remember it being a somewhat chilly night and one of the high school girlfriends I had was snuggled up next to me when I prodded her to stand. We all extended our hands to greet the World War II hero and shake our congressmans hand. I stuck my left hand out, yet he pulled his back. Sen. Dole proceeded to engage me in conversation. Youre not old enough to vote, are you? he asked, perhaps realizing I had not shaved in a week, not because of an unkempt beard but because I didnt need to shave that often. Yes I am, I stated proudly, as my friends cackled in the background, knowingly because they knew I could vote and none of them could. Well thats super, the apparently distinguished senator said. I hope you remember to vote for me in November. I think my jaw hit the ground some 50 feet below me before I uttered my last comment to the pompous, distinguished senator from the Land of Oz. Dont count on it, I said in a matter of fact tone, knowing full well this guy had it in the bag and my vote wasnt going to make or break his re-election efforts. Now, Im not sure if he was shocked or just completely bewildered at what I had said or had the courage to do so. Well why wouldnt you vote for me? he asked, dumbfounded. You refused to shake my hand, I told him. Well you didnt look old enough to vote, he countered. Now, at this point in time, I See LETTERS page 5 See TAXPAYERS page 5 See JERSEY page 5 Lynne McAndrew Audrey Beem Jeff Bryan Editor See Other page 10

that badly thought of. Leave Rainbow Springs and Lake Tropicana alone or change the voting restrictions. I firmly believe if your extracting funds from them then they have rights to vote and run for office. Anybody see vehicles servicing Dunnellon residents with out of state license plates? I really mean out of state. Yes, the city didnt even look within Florida. And, as usual, failed to give jobs to our unemployed residents or neighboring counties. These out-of-staters are being paid New York wages. Yet, they are extracting our nickels, dimes and pennies left and right and leaving our people unemployed. Hey, this truck only had one sign on it to publicize whom and what service they are performing. State law is signs on both sides, state license numbers on those signs and contractors identity, or are we privilege in this too as a city? I pray for a good bye from Mayor (Fred) Ward and for Ms. Algiere to follows. And Penny Fleeger what have you done? Do you not hear one thing you have voted for or against? Hopefully, you all will be on the highway out of this town before it is in total ruins. Mary HackerDunnellon they drop wells in their yard in order to quench their thirsty St. Augustine grass. One resident yelled at a city council meeting: Its our water. Finally, another mission, as stated in Mr. Blacks letter to the Rainbow Springs residents, with control of the City Council recent decisions could be reversed and the city manager fired. As one member of the City Council, I see Ms. Algiere as the driving force behind helping our city to grow and be a place where business can thrive. This will keep our taxes down and our residents employed. This year, our proposed ad valorem tax rate has decreased. This is thanks to her leadership and the commitment of city staff to providing quality services with minimum cost. In todays economy, that is a difficult task. Ms. Algiere is working on a 170-acre recreation complex for our city. A recreation committee has been working on this addition to our park system. And by the way, we welcomed requests from Rainbow Springs residents for tennis courts and other amenities. Thats what good neighbors do for each other. Ms. Algiere is constantly in touch with businesses around the country extolling the benefits of locating their green jobs right here in Dunnellon. You would be surprised at how many things are in the works as we speak. Also, Ms. Algiere has been working with the city engineers on streetscaping on West Pennsylvania Avenue. She has worked tirelessly with The Boys & Girls Club to help facilitate a new building for the children of our community. These are just a few examples of her efforts to make Dunnellon a familyoriented place to live. So Dunnellon residents, all 1,733 of you, when you vote in November remember what I have said. We are very fortunate to have such a proactive city manager in our corner. She is committed to lowering taxes in our city. I have lived in this city for 11 years and if I have learned anything, it is that we dont appreciate nonresident, non-taxpayers telling us what we do and dont need. Lynne B. McAndrew, a Dunnellon resident, currently holds Seat 3 on the Dunnellon City Council. She has served on the Council since 2008. As the July 26 Riverland News Editorial so well reasoned, it is time for new leadership and direction in Dunnellon City governance. The change I envision calls for recognition of mutual shared interest and cooperation between all Dunnellon area residents. We all want the best professional governmental services provided in the most efficient manner. All area residents want to be treated fairly on economic and representative issues. The clear obstacle to all this is the present Dunnellon City government. The first, vital step for change is for three motivated, civic-minded and honest citizens to enter the upcoming city elections in November. Putting parochial viewpoints behind the new commission should explore all options to serve the public good. The status quo cannot be maintained and voters must give the new leaders a mandate to make to difficult decisions. Time is of the essence before we fall off the financial cliff. I offer the following ideas that should be considered, debated and used as a platform to start the dialogue for a crucial election. A very detailed and unbiased professional study done about the feasibility of merging Dunnellon City operations into county jurisdiction. My personal opinion is that the entire city should be dissolved and all functions absorbed by the county. The study could provide the roadmap to this end. Bear in mind, paid consultants are like paid social companions, they will give you the results you want if you pay them enough. Let the math and economic facts point to the direction needed. Do not base decisions on visions, desires and hopes, which is what got us in this mess. This is where the political discussions should start. Greenlight Communications should be audited and the future of this unneeded operation carefully explored. Forgive my cynical nature, but the 824 individual customers recently reported seemed unrealistically high. Are these individual paying customers or multipoint hookups? The city should have been proud of that high penetration rate and certainly not try to hide it from the owners of Greenlight the Dunnellon taxpayer. Requiring a reputable newspaper to secure legal help to obtain a simple, public record fact shows the current secret, adversarial mentality the city has toward the public. I would be satisfied if the county took over the Dunnellon/Rainbow Springs Utilities. It would be equitable if all Dunnellon utility customers paid existing county rates. The Star Banner, on July 28, reported that county water rates will be reduced by 7 percent and wastewater rates by 11 percent in October 2012. The county charges all customers the same rates. The county never applies the 25 percent surcharge to newly acquired customers as Dunnellon did even though they could legally. The county utility company has a better credit bond rating based on its efficient, credit worthy record. Compare that with Dunnellon. Savings would be forthcoming if the county managed our utility. I proffer that city business and private residents would benefit from county governance. In short, to Dunnellon city business and residents, what would you lose if Dunnellon operations were replaced by the county? I believe just a level of unneeded cost and government. This needs to be considered in upcoming election. Dunnellon cannot continue on its present course. The upcoming November election is a time for Dunnellon area residents to unite, to put Dunnellon on a new course. There should be no us or them mentality, there is only we. I am fervently hoping that three good, concerned citizens will step forward to serve their community.Steve Swett is an 18-year Rainbow Springs resident and retired Dunnellon postmaster.

The family, including extended relatives, totals around 46 people a party all in itself. Add in a few old friends, some guys my dad worked with more than 20 years ago, neighbors and their families, and we had gathered a pretty good crowd. When we were kids growing up, our house was the hangout. My mom loved to cook and loved to have her children where she could see them, so we were usually the host family. So, of course, we had to invite the old hangout crowd, which included Keith Caton, Starr Fleming and a few out of town guests. Everybody took turns talking about my dad, reminiscing about old times and telling funny tales. My dad tried thanking everybody and declaring what a lucky man he is several times, but got choked up each time. The memory book turned out really nice. Everybody at the party contributed a page, plus we had a personalized page done by each member of the family. It will be something my dad can take out and read over and over again. The day of the party was busy with everyone running around gathering coolers and plenty of ice, more beer and soda, blowing up balloons, decorating, picking up the cake and, finally, going home to get ready. It was time for the big party. Put it all together and you have good friends, delicious food, mucho laughs and a great time. I am sure it will be one of my dads fondest memories.

RIVERLANDEDUCATION 6 Riverland News, Thursday, August 2, 2012 Muschamp counting on former DHS star Ronald Powell ranged across the field looking to make a tackle, but he got to the sideline a little late. As he planted his foot in the white paint, something went wrong. He fell to the ground, clutching his knee as trainers rushed over. The crowd of 38,100 in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium fell to a quiet whisper as it quickly realized the spring star was down on the turf. Two days later, the University of Florida announced that Powell had torn his ACL in the non-contact injury and would miss four to six months recovering from the injury, likely leaving the Gators without their starting buck heading into the season. Now Will Muschamp and the Gators are counting on a guy who had his own injury problems last year to fill the void. Lerentee (McCray) was a guy that was banged up a little bit last year, Muschamp said about the former Dunnellon High School standout. Can play both outside linebacker positions, can give us some edge rush in our four-down package. Muschamp has voiced a lot of confidence in the fifthyear senior. McCray played in nine games in 2011, starting five of them. However, he missed four of the last five games after suffering a shoulder injury.

Trio of Tigers attend Floridas Friday Night Lights There is no rest for the weary, which includes players in the Dunnellon High School football program. The Tigers have been busy throughout the summer, preparing for the 2012 season. Players have not only done their weight room preparations, but theyve attended multiple camps such as ones hosted by the University of Miami, South Florida University, Jacksonville University, but theyve competed in a variety of 7on-7 passing tournaments. Most recently, a trio of Dunnellon football players Dana Washington, Will Thomas and Keiwan Jones attended the University of Floridas Friday Night Lights, a camp geared toward prospective recruits that is arguably one of the Gators signature recruiting events.

Dunnellon residents compete in annual Michigan canoe raceIt was the ride of a life for 62year-old Larry Fredrick and 67-year-old Lee Short. The Dunnellon area residents competed in the 65th annual AuSable River Canoe Marathon Saturday and Sunday in Grayling, Mich., in the senior division. More than 60 teams participated in the longtime event. Teams entered from as far away as Canada and England. Among the number of teams who raced are: 15 Mixed Teams (men and women), and 11 Senior Teams (both 50 years and older). Additionally, there was eight Masters Teams (both 40 years and older), one womens team, and seven Rookie Teams (which consists of first-time paddlers). The AuSable River Canoe Marathon presented by Consumers Energy is the roughest, non-stop canoe race in North America. The racecourse runs almost the entire length of the AuSable River, 120 miles. Paddlers begin by running LeMans style, carrying their canoes on their shoulders near The Old AuSable Fly Shop with thousands of spectators cheering them on. Prior to the start of the marathon, the paddlers were introduced. For Fredrick, this was his fifth year competing; but for Short, who grew up in the area and had family members participate in the event, it was his first time competing. Every year after you compete, you think, Oh this is my last year doing it, Frederick said. But after a couple days go by, you want to compete again and then start preparing for the year to come. Fredrick and Short prepared themselves on the Withlacoochee River every week. On Sunday morning, the Black Bear Bicycle Tour departed for Oscoda in time to catch the paddlers at the end of their overnight adventure. The race ended in Oscoda, Mich., on the shore of Lake Huron. The river has about six dams to get around and the racers must pick up their canoes on their shoulders and run across the dam. The canoes that the racers use are made out of carbon fiber and weigh about 25 to 30 pounds empty. During racing days, due to the water and supplies they had to carry it weighs between 35 and 40 pounds. It gets pretty intense having to get up and down, Frederick said. Plus the temperature outAMANDA BARNEY For the Riverland News See PADDLE page 7 Washington, Jones, Thomas partiicpate in annual football camp JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See TIGERS page 7

the canoes beings it was 48 to 50 degrees, said Fredrick. It is also reported to be the toughest spectator sport in the world. Spectators cheered and motivated their favorite teams throughout the night. They must find access to the river in total darkness, navigate among thousands of other fans in order to get a glimpse of their favorite team and then move to another location. These fans did this for 14 to 19 hours as the contestants moved down river. New opportunities to view the entered field of contestants included the third day of Time Trials July 25 in Grayling and the Dash for Cash an up-to 64-team, bracketstyle, single-elimination, drag-race-style event for cash prizes Tuesday in Oscoda. From July 24 to 26, there was sprint races, which placed the canoers in the big race Saturday and Sunday. Short and Fredrick ran 120 miles in 17 hours, 1 minute, placing 33rd out of 70 teams. The main thing in this contest is to stay calm. It also depends on how fast you get out of your canoe and run across the dams and get back into them, thats what makes the difference between first and second, Fredrick said. In the long haul, though, I believe we did really good and cant wait to get ready for next year. linebacker, McCray didnt have a huge impact. He finished the year with 24 tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble. However, he had arguably his best game of the season playing buck against Auburn, a game Powell missed due to injury. He finished with four tackles, two tackles for a loss and a quarterback hurry. He played (buck) last year for us and did a really nice job, Muschamp said. Ronald was injured for the Auburn game. He came in and played very well at that position for him in that game. McCray actually looked much more comfortable at buck than he did at strongside linebacker. Playing closer to the line of scrimmage, he was able to get more pressure on the quarterback. If anything, he might even be more suited to the position than Powell. At 6-foot-2, 247 pounds, he has ideal size for the position. But Florida will also have a hole to fill at strongside linebacker if McCray slides to buck. No matter how you slice it, Powells injury means someone else will have to step up for the Gators. I think the wildcard there a little bit is Neiron Ball, Muschamp said. Hes a guy well play at (strong-side linebacker), he and Darrin Kitchens, see if those guys can continue to develop, which we think they can, to be really good players. Ball, of course, has been out of football for a year, so counting on any contributions from him could be a bit risky. Kitchens, on the other hand, played well in limited time at the end of the 2011 season. Hes probably the odds-on favorite to win the starting strong-side linebacker spot. If that happens, Muschamp thinks McCray should be able to slip in at the buck for a seamless transition until Powell is fully recovered. We can just take Lerentee, move him fulltime at the buck position, Muschamp said. I feel very comfortable about Lerentee. Powells injury is still a blow to the Gators, though. Florida expected to have a little more depth in the front seven this year, and being without Powell for any extended period of time will hurt that outlook. McCray isnt letting himself or the defense use that as an excuse after lack of depth was cited all too often last year in the teams struggles. The depth played a major concern, but as a football player, you have to find it in your heart to just come out and give it everything youve got, he said. Thats not really much of an excuse for what happened last year.Thomas Goilkdkamp is a staff writer for GatorBait. net, a sister publication of the Riverland News.

The fifth-year senior is 6-foot-2, 247 pounds. It was awesome, said Thomas, who started every game at center as a freshman. Ive been in The Swamp for games, but never on the field. Being on the field puts it in perspective. The soon-to-be sophomore said he learned plenty about what it he needs to do at the prep level to make it to the next level. I just need to continue doing my work in the classroom and I need to get stronger and faster on the field, said Thomas, who posted a 4.0 grade point average his first year in high school. Washington, a senior, who will back in a Tigers uniform this season after having competed for West Port a year ago, said it was an eye-opening experience. I went in with my head straight on, said Washington, who will help anchor the defensive line for Dunnellon this season. I feel the experience was helpful, because I know I just need to stay focused and continue working hard in the classroom, too. Being able to finish his prep career where it started is significant, Washington said. Im home, he explained. Coach Beasley is like a father figure to me, hes a great man. Jones said he learned a significant amount during the camp, hosted annually by the Gators football program. For one, the experience was amazing, the junior defensive/offensive lineman said. It showed me what I need to do the next couple of years to get to that level. I learned not only do I need to be a leader on the field, but in the classroom and the weight room. Jones credited the Florida football staff for its motivational techniques, too. They taught me its best to get mad, mad if I feel tired or need a break, he explained. If it works for those guys, it should work for us too. Dunnellon begins fall practice Monday in preparation for its annual Fall Classic against Lecanto, which is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25, at Ned Love Field. The summer has been really good, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said. Theyve embraced how to work. They get it. They understand how to prepare their bodies for the season. Its only a few weeks before we tee it up. TIGERS continued from page 6

It was just another day and I was indulging a carefree moment of complaining about the weather. I cant believe its so hot today, I muttered. I thought I was talking to myself but obviously, I had an audience. Have you ever said or did something not realizing somebody was watching you? Every time I am in a restaurant eating, I endeavor to remember there is an audience and try my very best not to spill the soup on my lap. Although, I must admit that that kind of lap dance always gets a vigorous round of applause from the audience. Dont ask me how I know. I thought in my own special way of thinking that I was alone only to find out the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was within earshot of my remarks. I must say she is rather remarkable. Those earshot moments are quite extensive. I will not go as far as to say that she can read my mind, although I think she can, but she seems to know what I am thinking even before I go through the effort and labor of thinking. I do not know why I even spend the energy thinking on my own. Even when I do think up a thought of my own and go so far as to express it I am always challenged. The challenge is, do not think that way. The challenger is my wife. Life would be so much easier, not to mention less stressful, if I just would quit thinking my own thoughts. It is when I am thinking my own thoughts that I get into trouble. Life would be so much easier if I allowed someone else to think my thoughts for me. After all, isnt that why men get married? Why women get married still baffles me. Getting back to my moment of complaining.8 Riverland News, Thursday, August 2, 2012 To Advertise in the Church DirectoryCall 489-2731For More Information To Advertise in the Church DirectoryCall 489-2731For More Information OUT TO PASTOR So, this is summer, is it?

And dont you know that its supposed to be hot during the summer? I did know that but it did not make the heat any more bearable. Then she said something that rather confused me. I have been confused before. Confusion is a familiar territory to me. But this confusion was different. If, my wife said rather sternly, you cant stand the heat get out of the kitchen. What the kitchen had to do with it being hot outside is way beyond my pay scale. There was a brief moment when I almost threw caution to the wind and asked my wife what she meant by that comment. Boy, am I glad I didnt. I make it a practice to stay as far away from the kitchen as possible, especially when my wife is present. There is something about a kitchen that makes me rather nervous to the point of dropping her favorite cup and having it break all over the floor. I stay out of the kitchen heat or no heat. If I remember correctly, my wife said as she stared at me rather intently, a few months ago you were complaining about how cold it was. She was right. It was not but a few months ago, I was complaining that it was so cold outside that I just could not bear it. Youre going to have to make up your mind. That was a serious admonition from her. For her to tell me to make up my mind sends some very contradictory messages to me. After all, she is forever making up my mind for me. She seems to know exactly what I want at the restaurant and before I can get a word in edgewise or otherwise, she has ordered for me. Im not complaining. She knows exactly what I want. Either, she continued, its too hot or its too cold. Now make up your mind. I smiled demurely in her direction and nodded in the affirmative. Not wanting to further the conversation I whispered very gently, Yes, dear. It concluded our tte--tte. Later on in the evening, we were watching television. It was the local news and special report of the day had to do with the record heat wave across our country. Its been a long time, the weatherman said, since weve seen temperatures this high. Boy, is it hot out there. I glanced in her direction as covertly as possible and noticed she was staring at me, just daring me to say something. There is a time to say something and then sometimes something should not be said at all. I concealed my infectious grin as much as possible knowing that someone was watching me. Under my breath I whispered, I cant believe its so hot today. After all, it is summer and it is supposed to be hot. I just believe that everybody has the right to complain about the weather. I also believe that some people have the right not to hear me complain about the weather. It is a well-noted mark of wisdom to know when to speak and when not to speak. Solomon in the Old Testament had it right when he said, Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding (Proverbs 17:28 KJV). So, this is summer, but you did not hear it from me.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P.O. Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

began to think pushing the issue was a moot point. Yet, there was something overly funny about his feelings being hurt. I took his bait. Why would it matter if I looked old enough, because Im a future voter, arent you supposed to shake everyones hand, be encouraging to taxpayers? I asked, most certainly spreading the sarcasm thickly. Well, uh, well, he sputtered. I wasnt sure if he was confused or doing his best impersonation of former President Richard Nixon, because I am certain both knew each other since they were a part of the Republican Party. Well kids, Ive gotta run, dont forget to tell your parents to vote for me in the November election, he said, as he was whisked away by some men in suits, no doubt his security entourage. My friends all burst into laughter upon his departure as I muttered a few obscenities together. What a jerk, I told my friends. Dude, one buddy said, are you really that upset about him not shaking your hand? No, but it was about principles, I reminded them. None of you can vote, hes at a high school football game, not an old folks home. He shouldnt be surprised if he bumps into a few people who arent old enough to vote. They agreed, and moments later we saw him kissing a baby. Perhaps it was that experience that soured me when it comes to meeting those seeking political office. Now I know there are some folks who are doing their civic duty and seeking to hold office. Now I realize being the editor of a local newspaper Ill meet most politicians. Most cannot remember my name albeit it is tricky when they shake my hand. Now there are a couple of folks who do remember my name, and strike up a personal conversation leaving their political aspirations and campaign speech in their pocket. I find that to be more personable, when they just ask how youre doing and engage in small talk. Theyre the kind of folks I wouldnt mind voting for. Either way, I havent had the heart to tell most of them I wont cast my ballot for em. They simply dont reside in my county. Aint that a kick in the head?10 Riverland News, Thursday, August 2, 2012 000C4VL 000C6T5 See Great . Even Late!

He was off chasing a butterfly and was left behind. Barry followed the train tracks into a large city and spent the night in a huge department store. Thats where Barry met Jack Bunny who had long, furry ears. Jack also had big front teeth and could not say his Ls. The two of them played all through the store and quickly became best friends. he sun came up to find Barry and Jack sleeping, snuggled together with the stuffed toys. Playing all night in the store had worn them out! Barry was dreaming about his mother. She was making his very favorite foodpancakes. He pictured the melting butter sliding across the steaming pancakes. Barry loved honey. He could taste the honey as he poured a huge amount all over the butter, the pancakes, the plate . and all over the table. OOPS! said Barry in his sleep. He wished he could have pancakes and honey every day. Barry woke with a start when he heard Jack yell, Now cut that out! Wet woose! The store had opened, and two naughty boys were pulling Jacks ears. Just as Barry turned to help Jack, a loud, booming voice rang out, That will be enough of that, boys! The boys quickly let go of Jacks ears and ran. The big voice belonged to Mr. Winklesneezer, a radio announcer, who was shopping in the store. When Mr. Winklesneezer spoke, everyone listened! Barry rushed over to Jack and asked, Are you all right? Jack just smiled his toothy grin. Barry knew he was okay, but he gave him a big bear hug anyway. Tby Bill Stephani Be looking for more adventures with Barry and his friends on the Just Kidding page!

An opera is a play where all the conversation is set to music and the actors sing the words instead of speaking them. Fruit LeatherA pack-and-go snack for summer activities! Get Ready . Fresh or canned fruit (well drained) One tablespoon of lemon juice or ascorbic acid (for each quart of fruit) Baking sheet, blender, heat-resistant plastic wrap, masking tape, oven Get Set . Some steps may require adult help. Preheat oven to 140 degrees. Go! Prepare the pan. Turn baking sheet over, bottom up. Cover bottom with plastic wrap. Secure wrap to sheet by taping down edges with masking tape (this prevents edges of wrap from pulling up while fruit is drying). Prepare the fruit. Pure fruit and lemon juice or ascorbic acid together in blender. Pour pure about 1/4" thick over prepared baking sheet. Leave a oneinch border around the edge of the sheet. Dry the fruit. Place baking sheet in oven, leaving the door open at least two inches. Dry until pure is leathery but still pliable and not sticky to the touch. This process takes several hours. When leather is done, remove from oven. Let cool. Roll up and store in an airtight container. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 START Connect the dots to see what firemen ride in.

Traveling Beach Ball A circle is formed with players facing the center in the water. Players stand close together but do not join hands. A beach ball is passed from hand to hand either to the left or right. One player swims around the outside of the circle and tries to touch the player who has the ball. When the swimmer succeeds, they change places, and a new player begins swimming around outside of the circle. Game continues until each player has had a turn.

At the go signal, the first player from each team swims out to catch one fish in his mouth, then swims back and tags the next player on the team. First team to finish wins!

In the 2013 season, it will be dedicated to her. It was hard this year looking over and not seeing her, but she was in spirit with the team, McCormick said. Margie Rosenthal Frank knew Cage since the second grade and grew to become best friends with her. Throughout the years, we have stayed in touch. I actually just went to her 50th birthday party, Frank said. She was like a loving angel, she was just a really sweet and fun person and Ill never forget the memories we shared. I remember on Lindas 50th birthday, she was going down the water slide and she got stuck and couldnt get up, it was so funny, McCormick recalled. According to Detective Rhonda Stroup, the lead investigator on the case, authorities havent found anything new that they hadnt found in the past. No new leads have presented themselves, she said, while no new evidence has popped up either. They did find out that this was not just a random act. I feel sorry for the family, Detective Stroup said. It is very frustrating that it is taking this long, but I am trying everything in my power to find the guy who murdered this woman and one day there will be justice. A $1,000 reward is still being offered for anyone who reports any evidence: witnessed, seen or heard about Cages death. She was always happy and always smiling, Cage-Milam said. There is nothing she wouldnt do for her kids and especially grandchildren. She was just an awesome woman, I wish I could just describe more as to the woman she was because words just dont describe her. On Cages Facebook page, many of her friends and family posted on her wall describing their feeling about how she is missed and still loved. In a post July 21, Jessica Shurlock wrote: Dear Linda (Mamma), I know you are in a better place now, but you are TRUELY missed here. I wish and feel guilty for not seeing you before you left and went to heaven. Your daughter has & will always be my best friend. I may not see her all the time, talk to her every day, or can always make it to things she needs me for! But I'm always here for her, and her family. And on Aug 3rd, I'm making one promise, to always remember you and dedicate that day to you. You were always like a mother to me. I love you, and miss you mamma. P.S. I know you hear this I'm writing, and I also want to make another promise ... I will always be here for Brandi, to the best that I can! Love always & forever. The family will be hosting a barbecue called Celebration of Life on Aug. 3 in dedication of Cage. She was more than my mom, she was my best friend and now its like I have nobody to talk to or get advice from, CageMilam said. Somebody had to see or hear something and we are waiting for the day they step up and say it. I am praying that somebody helps bring justice to not only a friend, but a mother, sister and grandmother of many!18 Riverland News, Thursday, August 2, 2012 000C5R4 000A8NZ 000C5R2 000C5QY 000BUS5 5185 A W.
