Residents file suit against city Theyve protested, picketed and boycotted. Now Rainbow Springs residents are headed to court regarding the city of Dunnellons purchase of the Rainbow Springs Utility system and the 25 percent surcharge officials implemented in the billing cycle. According to documents filed Aug. 7 in the 5th Judicial Circuit Court in Marion County, Louis Benza brings this action as an individual, and as a class action representative of approximately 1,500 former customers of Rainbow Springs Utility (RSU) facilities (water and sewer lines and treatment facilities) all located entirely in unincorporated Marion County. Residents now pay water and sewer user fees, including a 25 percent surcharge, to the city of Dunnellon even though the RSU lines and treatment facilities are not physically connected to any city lines or treatment facilities located within the city boundaries. The suit states this is an action for declaratory and injunctive relief brought under Section 180.191 and Chapter 86, Florida Statutes (2012) alleging that water and sewer rates, including a 25 percent surcharge, established by the city of Dunnellon is are unreasonable, unjust and inRainbow Springs utility users cite surcharge unfair burden JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Council selects health carrier City will save money After lengthy debate about what insurance carrier to choose for the upcoming fiscal year, the Dunnellon City Council opted to go with the staffs recommendation and partner with the Florida League of Cities. The decision will save the city about $4,000 in the Fiscal Year 2012-12 budget, but the more important factor council members used in making the decision was the savings city employees would earn. The city will now begin using Florida Municipal Insurance Trust, or FMIT, instead of opting to use Blue Cross Blue Shield. Currently, city employees are using United Health Care for their health insurance provider. Opting to go with FMIT also means the city loses the services of longtime advisor William Taylor, who had championed the Council to use Blue Cross Blue Shield, only because he didnt know the long-term costs associated with using FMIT. He assured the Council after its vote, he would be available at any time they needed his services. Ill still help the city of Dunnellon, said Taylor, who would have earned a commission had the city chosen to use Blue Cross Blue Shield.. I want whats best for the city of Dunnellon. My motivation is not about getting paid. In making the switch, employees co-payments and overall out-ofpocket expenses will drop as well as the cost of their insurance if they choose to insure a family member and Ring the bell JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsRomeo kindergartner teacher Shannon Marinacci and her daughters, Vanessa, and Madelyn, carry supplies to her classroom.

River views Will residents be shut out from meeting again?Editors Note: This is a letter sent to City Manager Lisa Algiere. The letter writer requested that it be published in full. Manager, I have received yet another statement of my water usage. I still do not understand the billing. Where on the bill do you indicate the 25 percent surcharge, which is added to my actual usage of water and sewer? You do not indicate the rate at which I am being charged for the 2,200 gallons I used for the current billing period as well. There is a notice of a public hearing regarding an increase to the water and sewer rates. Will we, once again, be shut out of this hearing? You must assume and plan for that there will be an outpouring of interested water customers who like to hear what you have to say. It would seem that a concerned city would have made plans to hold this hearing in a place large enough to handle the group of water customers who would surely wish to attend. It seems that the city of Dunnellon swells on controversy and a wish to anger its water customers to the north of the city limits. All we can hope for is a clean sweep on Election Day by our friends who are city residents and can vote you out. Joseph A. Russo Rainbow Springs Why so little discussion about Rainbow Rivers fate?Ive learned much in my seven months as a Rainbow Springs resident. I love Dunnellons small town atmosphere; the ambience of Rainbow Springs, the people Ive met in both. Ive studied and contributed to dialogue over water rates, Greenlight Communications, contentious issues between Dunnellon and Rainbow Springs. Ive read articles, op-eds, interviews, and more recently, political commentary about increasing revenue, reducing expenses, and preserving local quality of life. What is astonishingly absent in these discussions is mention of the areas imperiled and undeniably most valuable resource: the Rainbow River. Recent articles in the Ocala StarBanner highlighted the declining condition of Silver Springs, River, Floridan aquifer, and efforts to try and protect these important resources. But little has been said about whats happening to the Rainbow River upon which Dunnellon, Rainbow Springs, indeed the entire southwestern part of Marion County depend. As a scuba diver, I saw the RainMake the most of academic opportunities I miss the Olympic Games already. Every time we won a medal, my heart swelled with pride. The national anthem never sounded so sweet. There are so many athletes from all the countries that we can look up to, as role models and heroes. Didnt you just love the human interest side to the stories? The part where you learn that the mom just died of cancer, but her last wish was for her child to make the Olympic team. Oh gosh, I love that stuff. I was glued to my television every night trying to stay awake and anxiously awaiting the next medal. Im not sure which I love more, the Summer Games or the Winter Games. After all, the Summer Games have Michael Phelps, beach volleyball, synchronized swimming and gymnastics. But the winter games have Apolo Anton Ohno, Shaun White and that crazy, dangerous flume event, which I cant get enough of. Not to mention snow and ice. Im so glad I was able to witness Michael Phelps breaking the record for the most decorated Olympic athlete of all time and, also, what was maybe his last competitive swim. Those were both emotional moments. Dont you just love his mom? I think we need a Phelps reality show now that the Olympics are over. Even though Ryan Lochte actually beat him in one of the events, I dont think anybody would argue that the 2012 Olympic game ball belonged to Phelps, if there is such a thing. So what did you think of Londons opening ceremonies? I enjoyed them. They had David Beckham and Paul McCartney, but I didnt think they compared to the Beijing opening, which was spectacular. I really didnt care for the whole spooky storybook part, but I have to admit even if Queen Elizabeth didnt crack a smile it was pretty cool for her to agree to do the opening skit with Daniel Craig. Plus, watching all of those athletes marching in with their countrymen, full of hope and pride, thats the best part. Then there was the perfect couple, Prince William and his beautiful wife, Kate, sitting front and center. They are better than any Barbie and Ken doll I ever owned. Dont you love Kerri and Misty May, the amazing beach volleyball duo? When they battled it out with the Chinese team I was on the edge of my seat. Did you know that Misty was Kerris idol growing up? In fact, she asked her for an autograph while still in school. To grow up and get the chance to play with her as part of a winning team, thats a dream come true, wouldnt you say? Im so happy they won another gold medal together. The mens team of Rogers and Dalhausser was pretty awesome, The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

It didnt matter where Ive resided, I could remember the channel numbers for Sports Center on a variety of cable providers. The sports sections of numerous newspapers were not safe around me, as I would pore through box scores for hours as well as the numerous stories. It made me a better writer, thats certain too. I also made a promise to myself years ago that I would not live vicariously through my offspring. I wanted them to pursue their own dreams and goals. Having spent a good portion of my early journalism career on the sports side, I witnessed too many overly eager parents pushing their lifelong dreams upon their children. It was disturbing. So with two boys, Ive certainly not pushed sports onto them. Im letting them make their own choices, when they are ready to learn, Im certainly willing to instruct them to the best of my limited athletic abilities. So it was much to my surprise and dismay, when the boys informed me they wanted to learn to play golf. Anyone who knows me or seen me play OK, playing might not be the right choice of wording realizes thats a recipe for disaster. However, they begged and pleaded. Who was I to say no? But I dont have a set of junior golf clubs or a righthanded set they could even use. Yes, Im one of those folks who is wrong handed, or plays from the wrong side. So I made a call to my close friends and owners of Rainbow Ends Golf Course, hoping that Don and Linda Delaney would have set of used junior clubs lying around and not mind lending them out for a short stint on the driving range. Wanting to keep the public and any nearby houses safe, I left my clubs at home. Its perhaps the safest place in the world to do so. Honestly, I wanted to make sure the boys had my full and undivided attention, and they had it about the first time I was showing them a grip and stance when Jackson brought the club backward and nearly clocked me in Father-son bonding, a slice of happiness Proud to be an American C ertainly it is hard to fathom a new school year is upon us already, but the calendar indicates it is time for former students to return to the halls of academia and new students to embark on an educational journey as their minds are molded into future leaders, politicians, teachers, doctors, lawyers and such. We all play a role in the education of our youths, whether or not you have children, grandchildren or other family members making their way through the educational system. Educating our children shouldnt be left to the teachers and administrators themselves. It starts at home, and we can certainly attest to the simple fact home life isnt always the best. However, we shouldnt let that deter us from making sure our children take advantage of the chances, where we as adults can look back now and say: I wish I would have studied harder. We encourage you to push your children to be excited about the opportunities before them, to be bold about taking every chance they have when it comes to receiving the best an education has to offer. Top-notch educations dont come from the prices we pay for our childrens education now. Public, private or homeschooled, we need to push our children to be better than us. This is the most exciting time in a childs life, when their minds are opened to learning about the three Rs, sciences, arts and history. This isnt about being the best athlete, nor is it about being the most popular in school. This is about taking advantages of the opportunities that come before you every day, about striving for the best the world has to offer. Everyone can, and should, be playing a part. Sure your children might have flown the nest years ago, but there are volunteer opportunities in the area to help. They range from serving as mentors, to listening to children read, to reading to youngsters. We shouldnt forget the numerous clubs or groups who do what they can to assist our children, whether it be stuffing backpacks in the local Food 4 Kids program, to the Kiwanis Club of Dunnellon. Both serve to enhance our youths future, and they do so in their own unique ways. Yet the goal is the same: make some childs day brighter. Sure, life is busy and there a lot of distractions but perhaps now is the time again for some traditional education assistance. Turn off the televisions, the computers, tablets and smart phones and turn on the minds of our children and engage them. Our youths will thank us in the years to come for being supportive and encouraging. We owe them that much. See LETTERS page 5 See OTHER page 5 See JERSEY page 5 Audrey Beem Jeff Bryan Editor

too. Im just glad they didnt wear Speedos. Im not even jealous of all the perfect bodies in those tiny little swimsuits. I am actually proud that the U.S. has so many good-looking people running around. The gymnastics team, wow, they were flawless! Theyre not only gold medal winners, but have definitely captured the hearts of America. I want Allyson Felixs abs, Kerri Walshs legs and Missy Franklins smile. Is that too much to ask for? The synchronized stuff was captivating. Its hard enough to do a dive with four flips, but then try to do one at the same exact time as somebody else. Well its nearly impossible. What about the doubleamputee runner? And The Bolt? How amazing were they? So I was thinking wouldnt it be great to be a part of the Olympics? To be the best in the world at something ... but then I starting thinking about my sporting abilities and I figured the closest I would ever get would be my couch. Thats OK, because sitting in my living room with the family and cheering them on is good enough for me. I, like millions of people all over the world, look forward to doing it all over again four years from now in Rio. Should we start a petition to try to convince Michael Phelps to come back or should we just leave him alone, let him enjoy his life, and always remember that we were a part of the crowd watching him and loving him back in 2004, 2008 and 2012? bows slimy, algae-covered bottom during the recent Cleanup Day sponsored by Rainbow River Conservation, Inc. Where once was white sand, native grasses, and abundant wildlife, there is significant damage. I was astonished to learn that this 5.7 mile-long river had more than 300,000 visitors in 2009-2010 alone. As a frequent swimmer, Ive also watched conditions deteriorate within hours after boaters, tubers, snorkelers, fishermen, swimmers and divers descend upon the Rainbow, in ways often detrimental to the fragile ecosystem. Ive noted worsening bottom conditions as one progresses past more densely populated areas where pesticide and fertilizer runoff concentrations are no doubt highest. Studies show exponential increases in river contaminants. While some efforts have been made to forestall further damage, not nearly enough is being done. Making matters worse, Governor Scott recently eliminated important grant money designated for a significant Rainbow River restoration plan. Rainbow River advocates are waging an uphill battle against a lack of local awareness and concern about its declining condition. Im stunned that this imperiled river that consultants hired by the Florida DEP say brings $8.4 million, $588,000 in state sales taxes, and 168 jobs to southwestern Marion County is overlooked in discussions about preserving and/or improving local economic health and quality of life. And have I just not been here long enough to see any letters to the editor urging local residents to wake up to whats happening in our own backyards? Volunteers from Rainbow River Conservation Inc. produced an extraordinary videotape over a year ago, Rainbow River Aquatic Vegetation that should be seen by everyone in or around the Rainbow River, or who lives within its economic reach. Yet, as of this writing, its been viewed only 185 times in a county of more than 330,000 people. What would Dunnellon, Rainbow Springs or the county be without the Rainbow River? Go to the RRC website at www.rainbowriverconservation.com/, click Education, then Rainbow River Aquatic Vegetation video to learn the importance of healing this river and how. Just because it was here long before us doesnt guarantee it will outlast us. Presently, odds are against it without actions to protect it, starting now. Kathryn Taubert, Rainbow Springs More to worry about than Romneys moneyA few weeks ago Patricia Hess wrote a long meandering and unfocused letter about foreigners calling to solicit business, and then ranted on Mitt Romney for having money in foreign accounts, and if elected, he will take our country down. Not sure if you can blame all that we are dealing with on him. If you are concerned about jobs leaving America, check out the trade agreements we have that take away tariffs on foreign trade and really, we Americans are supporting those jobs leaving because we want the cheapest merchandise and that would be foreign made. Why? Well, they dont have governments requiring employers to pay social security, workers compensation, health insurance, and the unending list of regulations OSHA, ANSI, EPA, et cetera, to do business. This is only a partial list! Even we Floridians dont buy local juice check the label, are you surprised? Check the meat counter, foreign food. Remember a while back the Made in China label was on bad steel, bad sheetrock, bad baby food and bad pet food? Do you think they have gotten better? We still buy from them. Down the road, we can thank ourselves for the lack of good jobs. Sure, we will have work, low paying jobs and service industry, because the industrial and factory work will have surely left the country. Take note, Chinese workers are in this country building a bridge in San Francisco. Oh, and Romney has money in foreign banks. Yeah, I guess I would too, it may be safer there and legal. You are worried about where Romney puts his money; I am more worried about where Obama got his!

Daddy getting clobbered and doing something funny always draws an outburst of laughter, always par for the course, pun intended. Needless to say, I got quite a workout in on the range in the mid-afternoon sunlight. As I bounced back and forth to watch their stances and swings, they giggled with delight. Watch me, daddy, they shouted. Both doing better than I could, their shots went straight. Mine generally find the trees, beach and water. More often than not, my shots dont even go straight.

This is an eight-session training class, which is available either as an afternoon class, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. or as an evening class, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. The afternoon and evening classes run concurrently and attendance can be mixed, depending upon availability. Only one class can be missed in the eight-session series and the CPR and last class is mandatory. The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the sheriffs office. The purpose of CERT is to train and certify volunteers to be first responders in their communities in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane or tornado. The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism. Studies of behavior following a disaster have shown that volunteers perform more effectively if they have had prior training and planning in how to function as a team. For more information and for an application, contact Bob Conn, trainer, at 352-812-0853. Special to the Riverland News LETTERS continued from page 4 Solution to puzzle on Page 6

Riverland News, Thursday, August 16, 2012 7 Now is the time to write that Florida song. The annual Will McLean Foundation New Florida Song Contest begins Sept. 1. Songs may be entered until Dec. 31, 2012, and submitted to The Will McLean New Florida Song Contest, P.O. Box 621568, Orlando, FL 32862. The song must be about Florida and must be clearly identifiable as such. Songs may be any type of music, and must be the original work of the entrant. Those who wish to enter need not be skilled musicians. There are songs in the hearts of everyone. The songs entered into the contest are not judged on the slickness of their presentation. However, a good recording showcases the songs to the best advantage. Since its beginning in 1992, the contest has generated hundreds of songs about every conceivable aspect of Florida: its history, land, water, characters, weather and creatures. Songs have been serious, comical, romantic, and inspirational. They have included folk, country, rap, blues, jazz and classical. Entries arrive from various areas of the United States, but most come from Florida. Five judges rate the songs on authenticity, originality and emotional impact, as well as technical aspects. Each person may submit up to three songs. Cash prizes are awarded the top three entries. Winners are invited to perform on the main stage at the annual Will McLean Music Festival, March 8 to 10, 2013, at the Sertoma Youth Ranch in Brooksville. All who enter will have an opportunity to share their songs in song circles at the festival. The Will McLean Foundation has produced the first in a series of compact discs featuring the finalists of each year. For information, visit www.willmclean.com or call 352-465-7208. equitable as applied to users located in the unincorporated area who were served until 2012 by Rainbow Springs Utilities (RSU), which was purchased by the city, but is located entirely in unincorporated Marion County and not physically connected to any other preexisting city of Dunnellon utility lines or treatment facilities. Ralf Brookes, a Cape Coral-based attorney, wrote in the court filings the circuit court has jurisdiction pursuant to Florida Statutes Sections 86.011(2012) (Declaratory Judgments) and 180.191 (2012) (Limitation on Rates Charged Consumer Outside City Limits) Florida Statutes (2012). According to the suit, a statutory surcharge of up to 25 percent for unincorporated users available pursuant to 180.191(1) was intended to recover funds expended for the original provision of water and sewer capital facility service that is physically connected and extended to unincorporated areas. The statutory surcharge under 180.191(1) was not intended to apply to users of a pre-existing facility located entirely outside the municipal boundaries of the city of Dunnellon when there is no physical extension or expansion of physical service connections to the city of Dunnellon. The suit further stated no additional improvements, no additional transmission lines, no additional treatment facilities were required by the city to operate the RSU facilities located entirely outside city boundaries and serving only non-residents. According to the suit, no additional cost of delivery of utility services to those RSU users outside the municipal limits were incurred by the city of Dunnellon, and there were no substantial expenditures for capital improvements which were brought about by the demand of non-city residents. The documents state the city of Dunnellon water and sewer rates for users of RSU facilities located entirely in unincorporated Marion County, include a 25 percent surcharge that is not warranted because the RSU facilities are not physically connected to the Citys other water and sewer utility lines or treatment facilities, but instead are located wholly and solely outside the municipal boundaries with no physically connected to any other pre-existing city water or sewer utility facilities. Prior to the sale and purchase of RSU by the city of Dunnellon, RSU rates were regulated by the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC). Municipal utility rates, including rates and surcharges outside municipal boundaries, and annual increases are not subject to state oversight or regulatory approval by the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC). However, municipal utility rates are subject to review by the courts under 180.191 Florida Statutes. The suit contends the citys water and sewer rates for users of RSU facilities are more than 50 percent higher than the water and sewer rates approved by the PSC for RSU prior to the purchase of RSU by the city of Dunnellon and establishment of the new water and sewer rate, including a 25 percent surcharge by the City Council. According to the suit, former RSU customer users were not, and are not, voters within the municipality, and have no representative(s) on the City Council to represent their interest as unincorporated non-residents with regard to the establishment of water and sewer rate, including a 25 percent surcharge, now charged to users of RSU facilities. The suit states the rate and annual rate increases, including a 25 percent surcharge, on all of the users of RSU is not justified by any difference in the cost of furnishing services or any prior expenses incurred by the city of Dunnellon since no connection, expansion or extension of utility lines or treatment facilities to RSU was required, and the imposition of the 25 percent surcharge is therefore contrary to the intent of Florida Statute Section 180.191. The suit alleges the rate, annual increase and 25 percent surcharge on users of the pre-existing standalone RSU utility located entirely outside the municipal boundaries lacks a rational nexus to the reasonable cost of the services provided, creates an unreasonable windfall for the city that is unwarranted under the facts and circumstances of this case. According to the suit, residents want the court to: Declare that water and sewer rates and annual increases, including a 25 percent surcharge, established by the city of Dunnellon are unwarranted, unreasonable, and not just and not equitable as applied to users of the RSU facilities located entirely in unincorporated Marion County and not physically connected to any existing city of Dunnellon water and sewer utility lines or treatment facilities; Quash and enjoin any unreasonable or unwarranted rates or surcharges set for users of the RSU facilities located entirely in unincorporated Marion County by the city of Dunnellon; Return, refund or credit any unreasonable rates, including the 25 percent surcharge; Award statutory treble damages pursuant to Florida Statutes 180.191(4) (2012) (Limitation on Rates Charged Consumer Outside City Limits); Award statutory attorneys fees pursuant to Florida Statutes 180.191(4) (2012) (Limitation on Rates Charged Consumer Outside City Limits); and Any other relief deemed appropriate by the court. Due to city policy, officials could not comment about the class-action lawsuit filed by the residents of Rainbow Springs. 000CAL9 000C4VL 0 0 0 C B F 3 Thanksgiving & Christmas Trips Available IP Resort $159 pp/dbl Beau Rivage $175 pp/dbl SOT #36723 Biloxi Ca$ino Tours 3 Nights Sept. 17 & Oct. 15 Call for additional dates.

I am not sure who invented summer vacation but I think they deserve a Nobel Peace Prize. Every year is worth the intense strain when there is a summer vacation to look forward to. Ah, summer vacation. The freedom of not having anything to do. No schedule in my face. No appointments frustrating me. Just an agenda of fun and more fun and dont forget the eating. Both the aGracious Mistress of the Parsonage and me got up early to begin the drive to the airport to take us to our vacation location. I was so full of energy I could not sit still. It was then that I broke into singing, comfortably off key, a Carpenters song much to the agitation of my wife. Weve only just begun, White lace and promises, A kiss for luck and were on our way. All my wife could do was stare at me. Finally, she said, You sure are excited. Ive never seen you so excited. Are you sure youre all right? I could not have been more all righter. All I could think of was a week before me surrounded by grandchildren I have not seen for over a year. How old is...? I went through all the grandchildren. It is easy to forget how old kids are because every year their age changes. When you get to be my age, it is hard to keep up with all of these changes. A week of stuffing them with all the candy I could carry. Taking them out to a restaurant and showing them the proper use of the drinking straw and the fine art of a spitball battle. After all, it is a grandfathers solemn duty to teach his grandchildren the fine art of shenaniganism. Where else are they going to learn it? Their grandmother? I dont think so. We finally arrived at the airport, parked our car, and proceeded to the check-in counter. I am not sure my feet touched the ground, so excited was I to get on our way. Slow down, my wife pleaded. I cant keep up with you. We finally arrived at the check-in counter with our baggage and one of the attendants asked me a simple question. I hate it when people ask me a question when I am in one of my silly moods. Believe me; I was in one of my silliest silly moods at this time. Sir, the attendant asked me very seriously, do you have anything perishable or flammable in your luggage? 10 Riverland News, Thursday, August 16, 2012 0809 RIV THE CITY OF DUNNELLON CITY COUNCIL will hold a Quasi Judicial Public Hearing on Monday, August 27, 2012 at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall, 20750 River Dr., Dunnellon, FL 34431 to consider the adoption of: ZONING CHANGE #REZ2012-04 INCLUDING VARIANCES DESCRIBED HEREIN ORDINANCE #ORD2012-09 AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF DUNNELLON, FLORIDA; AMENDING THE ZONING OF THE DUNNELLON CODE OF ORDINANCES BY SPECIFICALLY AMENDING SECTION 6.3 ENTITLED, ZONING DISTRICT MAPS, TO REZONE THE PROPERTY LEGALLY DESCRIBED AS SEC 35 TWP 16 RGE 18 PLAT BOOK F PAGE 027 RAINBOW RIVER ACRES BLK G LOTS 4.5.6, DUNNELLON, FLORIDA, FROM R3A, RESIDENTIAL MEDIUM DENSITY TO NBR, NEIGHBORHOOD BUSINESS RESIDENTIAL, WITHIN THE CORPORATE LIMITS OF THE CITY OF DUNNELLON, FLORIDA; PROVIDING FOR SEVERABILITY; PROVIDING FOR REPEAL OF INCONSISTENT ORDINANCES; AND PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

With silliness smeared all over my mug I said, I sure do. I got a Bible in there and it is Dyn-O-Mite. And, I had the audacity to smile very broadly. Then it happened. Someone said, Did he say dynamite? Wheres the dynamite? The attendant said, He said the dynamite was in his briefcase. Suddenly, lights went on, buzzers began ringing, men in uniforms surrounded me, and two grabbed and subdued me. In a few moments, the hazmat men arrived asking where the dynamite was. The man in charge pointed to my briefcase and said, Its in the briefcase. They begin moving people away while the hazmat men came in to remove the briefcase with the alleged dynamite. At this time, I was absolutely stunned. Every ounce of silliness had drained from my person and I knew I was about to go to jail. Finally, the senior security guard came and looked at me. Where did you say the dynamite was, sir? I stammered and stuttered but finally I said, I said my Bible was dynamite. He stared at me. Look me up and down, glared at me with eyes that burned into my very soul. Then he spoke. Would you by any chance be a minister? He said rather gruffly. Yes sir, I stammered as if my life depended upon what I was going to say, I am a minister, a preacher of the gospel. I thought the last part might do something for me. At least it was a shot, excuse me, a try. He glared at me and shouted, False alarm. Just another crazy preacher. As he walked away, I could hear him muttering under his breath, Where do all these crazy preachers come from? The terminal finally quieted down, I went through the inspection, and I must say, I am not complaining mind you, but the pat down was a little longer and rougher than I remembered it being in the past. They stripped me down almost to my birthday suit. Thank God for wrinkles. As I walked down the aisle on the plane, I could hear people whispering, Thats him. Thats the crazy preacher with the dynamite. I finally sat down next to my wife who was staring out the window. In a few minutes the plane took off and as we reached our altitude she, while still staring out the window, said to me, Next time well take separate planes. She paused for a moment and then said, In fact, will take separate airports. I think I am going to stick to what the Bible says. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12 KJV). Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P .O. Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

Sweet spirited, beautiful, patient and kind are a few words that can be used to describe Connie. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend.

During her 34 years of teaching, Connie also served as a councilwoman for the Dunnellon City Council. She served as president for Delta Kappa Gamma Sorority and sang in the church choir. Since her retirement, Connie moved to St. Marys with her husband. While living in St. Marys she has served on the board of directors for CASA and EarthKeepers and was involved in many other volunteer activities. Connie was loved by all who knew her, and she touched the life of everyone she met in many ways. She is survived by her husband, Fr.

Parents and students can expect a review of schoolwide procedures and introduction of individual classroom expectations during the first few days of school as well as classroom activities designed to establish relationships between teachers and students, McAteer said. Our staff is very excited about our students returning to school and they are looking forward to an exciting and productive year. Delbert Smallridge replaces Jane Ashman at Dunnellon Middle School. Smallridge is a longtime assistant principal in the school district, most recently holding the position at Lake Weir Middle School for the past five years. Ashman isnt a new principal, nor is she a new face at Romeo Elementary, where she takes over for the recently retired Kathy Hultman. Ashman spent two years as an assistant principal at Romeo before serving the past eight as principal at Dunnellon Middle School. Smallridge, who met the full faculty and staff Monday, called the day fantastic. Today was a fantastic day, it was the first day to meet all of faculty members; nice to get to put faces with names, he explained. Its been a really, really great day for me. This is something that has been a goal for a long time. Its been a number of years coming. It just feels really good. Dunnellon Middle School is one of the best-kept secrets. We have a fantastic crew here. Im just impressed every single day. The quality of the individuals here; Im looking forward to getting to know them better each and every day. Smallridge said perhaps the biggest change for the upcoming school year for students will be the adoption of four set of core values: Tigers ROAR, which breaks down as such: R Respect; O Own It; A Active Learner; and R Responsible. These are things were going to be teaching the children, Smallridge said. Its something that is going to ongoing for years to come. Well probably take a core value each quarter and break it down and teach the students to do what they can to help reinforce what each one means. Smallridge said Monday will be the cherry on top of the cake. Its a culmination of many, many years of working in this direction, he said. It finally feel into place. Im probably going to be speechless While those are perhaps the biggest changes locally, there will be two constants this fall as Fredina Wilkerson enters her third year as principal at Dunnellon Elementary and Kristy Nelson is back for the third year to guide the faculty and staff at Dunnellon Christian Academy. Were all excited, we have a great staff, said Nelson, who noted there was a pair of staff changes for the upcoming year. Parents are excited, too. Nelson said the school will host an open house starting at 7 p.m. today. Teachers are already for the students, they are excited about the school year beginning, Nelson said, noting enrollment at the school is up this year. Our numbers are up and thats a great thing. Dunnellon Police Chief Joanne Black encourages motorists to use caution, not only Monday, but throughout the first week of school as they acclimate themselves with seeing buses and students at bus stops. I want them to prepare, leave a little early and be a little patient, she said. School buses will slow down traffic. Watch for kids, because sometimes they sit on the curbs or they are walking across the street. Use caution when going through school zones. Please, drive with caution and be very patient. We just want everyone to be careful. Well have extra patrols out the whole week. School zones will be active again, remember to slow down. People do forget, so we want them to be aware. The speeds get reduced and fines get doubles. This is all about the childrens safety. Black also issued words of wisdom for students at bus stops or walking to them. Cross at the intersections, she explained. If youre with a younger brother or sister, make sure you help them across the street. Dont walk into the streets in between cars, motorists might not see you. We wish everyone a safe and great school year.

Horsing Around Safely Horseback riding is a lot of fun. But before you gallop off, take a look at these guidelines to help make your ride safe and more enjoyable. Before you start Put on a safety helmet or hard hat. Wear sensible boots, like hiking or riding boots. Check the horse Make sure the horses chin strap is done up right. Keep the reins in good order. Adjust stirrup leathers to be the right height for you. Around the horse Dont get too close to the horses back legs. If you must, talk to the horse so it knows you are there. Mount and dismount from the right side. During the ride Enjoy your ride and dont ride too fast. Dont let your horse get too close to the one in front of you. Keep your feet in the stirrups and your heels down. Make sure you or your horse do not get too hot or cold. In case you fall If you feel like youre falling, dont stiffen up. Dont use your hands to break your fall. Curl in a ball when you hit the ground, then roll away from the horse. If you have any questions or concerns, talk to the people where youre riding. What a Pest! They are only 1 16 to 1 8 inches long when full grown, but even at that size, fleas cause a lot of problems. They dont just bug cats and dogs; they can cause humans medical problems, too, like allergies and tapeworms. The dark reddish-brown insects are almost flat from side to side, so they can move through hair, fur and feathers pretty easily. Fleas dont have wings; however, they have three pairs of legs, and the back legs are longer, which helps them jump. They can leap up to 7 inches vertically and 13 inches horizontally, which is pretty far considering their size. The mouths of fleas have piercing, sucking parts, and there are spines on their bodies that point backward, along with a row of spines on their faces called a genal comb. Adult fleas cannot live or lay eggs without a meal of blood. Once they have that meal, they can live off of it for awhile. A female flea can lay 15 to 20 eggs a day after a blood meal, and she can lay up to 600 eggs during her life.

As it stands now, the city covers the cost of an individual health insurance plan. Currently, the city pays $480.35 for monthly insurance but changing plans means the cost drops to $473.32. According to City Clerk Dawn Bowne, 47 of the citys 52 employees use an individual plan with four employees insuring themselves and one family member. She said only one city employee insures their whole family through the city, and in doing so picks up the difference in the cost. Switching to FMIT means that employee would pay $893.05, a savings of about $7 per month. Bowne, who told the Council she favored the city using Blue Cross Blue Shield, said she had not polled city employees about what plan they wanted. Either way, Im not going to try and sway you, she told the Council. Eventually, Mayor Fred Ward halted the conversation and asked pointedly what the staffs recommendation was for insurance carriers. It is the recommendation of the staff to use FMIT, Bowne said. In other action, the Council: Delayed approving $35,000 in funds toward a sewer line and lift station for the new Boys & Girls Club facility to be constructed along U.S. 41. Utilities Director Eddie Esch said the current price quotes to Boys & Girls Club officials seemed high. He said through his own conservative estimates it would appear they could get it done for about $35,000. Currently, city officials said, the cost engineers for the project have quotes Boys & Girls Club officials a price tag of $58,000. The Council directed Esch and Community Development Director Harold Horne to meet with Boys & Girls Club officials and encourage them to have that portion of the project resigned. Once its been completed, the Council would review helping to pay a cost of the project. Approved purchase requests for the following items: Maintenance agreement for headend equipment for $4,244.77 with Sanforce; and requested to increase purchase order for maintenance agreement for the Cisco Core Router originally approved July 23 by Council. The total amount is $25,500. Appointed the following members to the Citizens Advisory Task Force (CATF) as required for the 2012 Community Development Block Grant application: Janie Keele, Terry Dunham, Valerie PorterHanchar, Robert Cubbage and Sherry Smith-Evans. Approved an addendum to agreement with the special magistrate to a maximum of one-hour travel time per visit. The special magistrate will be reimbursed $175 per hour of travel time, but the time cannot exceed more than one hour. Approved an addendum with Florida Municipal Services for a two-year renewal of a contract for building inspection services.

Residents file suit against city Theyve protested, picketed and boycotted. Now Rainbow Springs residents are headed to court regarding the city of Dunnellons purchase of the Rainbow Springs Utility system and the 25 percent surcharge officials implemented in the billing cycle. According to documents filed Aug. 7 in the 5th Judicial Circuit Court in Marion County, Louis Benza brings this action as an individual, and as a class action representative of approximately 1,500 former customers of Rainbow Springs Utility (RSU) facilities (water and sewer lines and treatment facilities) all located entirely in unincorporated Marion County. Residents now pay water and sewer user fees, including a 25 percent surcharge, to the city of Dunnellon even though the RSU lines and treatment facilities are not physically connected to any city lines or treatment facilities located within the city boundaries. The suit states this is an action for declaratory and injunctive relief brought under Section 180.191 and Chapter 86, Florida Statutes (2012) alleging that water and sewer rates, including a 25 percent surcharge, established by the city of Dunnellon is are unreasonable, unjust and inRainbow Springs utility users cite surcharge unfair burden JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Council selects health carrier City will save moneyAfter lengthy debate about what insurance carrier to choose for the upcoming fiscal year, the Dunnellon City Council opted to go with the staffs recommendation and partner with the Florida League of Cities. The decision will save the city about $4,000 in the Fiscal Year 2012-12 budget, but the more important factor council members used in making the decision was the savings city employees would earn. The city will now begin using Florida Municipal Insurance Trust, or FMIT, instead of opting to use Blue Cross Blue Shield. Currently, city employees are using United Health Care for their health insurance provider. Opting to go with FMIT also means the city loses the services of longtime advisor William Taylor, who had championed the Council to use Blue Cross Blue Shield, only because he didnt know the long-term costs associated with using FMIT. He assured the Council after its vote, he would be available at any time they needed his services. Ill still help the city of Dunnellon, said Taylor, who would have earned a commission had the city chosen to use Blue Cross Blue Shield.. I want whats best for the city of Dunnellon. My motivation is not about getting paid. In making the switch, employees co-payments and overall out-ofpocket expenses will drop as well as the cost of their insurance if they choose to insure a family member and Ring the bell JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsRomeo kindergartner teacher Shannon Marinacci and her daughters, Vanessa, and Madelyn, carry supplies to her classroom.

River views Will residents be shut out from meeting again?Editors Note: This is a letter sent to City Manager Lisa Algiere. The letter writer requested that it be published in full.Manager, I have received yet another statement of my water usage. I still do not understand the billing. Where on the bill do you indicate the 25 percent surcharge, which is added to my actual usage of water and sewer? You do not indicate the rate at which I am being charged for the 2,200 gallons I used for the current billing period as well. There is a notice of a public hearing regarding an increase to the water and sewer rates. Will we, once again, be shut out of this hearing? You must assume and plan for that there will be an outpouring of interested water customers who like to hear what you have to say. It would seem that a concerned city would have made plans to hold this hearing in a place large enough to handle the group of water customers who would surely wish to attend. It seems that the city of Dunnellon swells on controversy and a wish to anger its water customers to the north of the city limits. All we can hope for is a clean sweep on Election Day by our friends who are city residents and can vote you out.Joseph A. Russo Rainbow SpringsWhy so little discussion about Rainbow Rivers fate?Ive learned much in my seven months as a Rainbow Springs resident. I love Dunnellons small town atmosphere; the ambience of Rainbow Springs, the people Ive met in both. Ive studied and contributed to dialogue over water rates, Greenlight Communications, contentious issues between Dunnellon and Rainbow Springs. Ive read articles, op-eds, interviews, and more recently, political commentary about increasing revenue, reducing expenses, and preserving local quality of life. What is astonishingly absent in these discussions is mention of the areas imperiled and undeniably most valuable resource: the Rainbow River. Recent articles in the Ocala StarBanner highlighted the declining condition of Silver Springs, River, Floridan aquifer, and efforts to try and protect these important resources. But little has been said about whats happening to the Rainbow River upon which Dunnellon, Rainbow Springs, indeed the entire southwestern part of Marion County depend. As a scuba diver, I saw the RainMake the most of academic opportunities Imiss the Olympic Games already. Every time we won a medal, my heart swelled with pride. The national anthem never sounded so sweet. There are so many athletes from all the countries that we can look up to, as role models and heroes. Didnt you just love the human interest side to the stories? The part where you learn that the mom just died of cancer, but her last wish was for her child to make the Olympic team. Oh gosh, I love that stuff. I was glued to my television every night trying to stay awake and anxiously awaiting the next medal. Im not sure which I love more, the Summer Games or the Winter Games. After all, the Summer Games have Michael Phelps, beach volleyball, synchronized swimming and gymnastics. But the winter games have Apolo Anton Ohno, Shaun White and that crazy, dangerous flume event, which I cant get enough of. Not to mention snow and ice. Im so glad I was able to witness Michael Phelps breaking the record for the most decorated Olympic athlete of all time and, also, what was maybe his last competitive swim. Those were both emotional moments. Dont you just love his mom? I think we need a Phelps reality show now that the Olympics are over. Even though Ryan Lochte actually beat him in one of the events, I dont think anybody would argue that the 2012 Olympic game ball belonged to Phelps, if there is such a thing. So what did you think of Londons opening ceremonies? I enjoyed them. They had David Beckham and Paul McCartney, but I didnt think they compared to the Beijing opening, which was spectacular. I really didnt care for the whole spooky storybook part, but I have to admit even if Queen Elizabeth didnt crack a smile it was pretty cool for her to agree to do the opening skit with Daniel Craig. Plus, watching all of those athletes marching in with their countrymen, full of hope and pride, thats the best part. Then there was the perfect couple, Prince William and his beautiful wife, Kate, sitting front and center. They are better than any Barbie and Ken doll I ever owned. Dont you love Kerri and Misty May, the amazing beach volleyball duo? When they battled it out with the Chinese team I was on the edge of my seat. Did you know that Misty was Kerris idol growing up? In fact, she asked her for an autograph while still in school. To grow up and get the chance to play with her as part of a winning team, thats a dream come true, wouldnt you say? Im so happy they won another gold medal together. The mens team of Rogers and Dalhausser was pretty awesome, The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

It didnt matter where Ive resided, I could remember the channel numbers for Sports Center on a variety of cable providers. The sports sections of numerous newspapers were not safe around me, as I would pore through box scores for hours as well as the numerous stories. It made me a better writer, thats certain too. I also made a promise to myself years ago that I would not live vicariously through my offspring. I wanted them to pursue their own dreams and goals. Having spent a good portion of my early journalism career on the sports side, I witnessed too many overly eager parents pushing their lifelong dreams upon their children. It was disturbing. So with two boys, Ive certainly not pushed sports onto them. Im letting them make their own choices, when they are ready to learn, Im certainly willing to instruct them to the best of my limited athletic abilities. So it was much to my surprise and dismay, when the boys informed me they wanted to learn to play golf. Anyone who knows me or seen me play OK, playing might not be the right choice of wording realizes thats a recipe for disaster. However, they begged and pleaded. Who was I to say no? But I dont have a set of junior golf clubs or a righthanded set they could even use. Yes, Im one of those folks who is wrong handed, or plays from the wrong side. So I made a call to my close friends and owners of Rainbow Ends Golf Course, hoping that Don and Linda Delaney would have set of used junior clubs lying around and not mind lending them out for a short stint on the driving range. Wanting to keep the public and any nearby houses safe, I left my clubs at home. Its perhaps the safest place in the world to do so. Honestly, I wanted to make sure the boys had my full and undivided attention, and they had it about the first time I was showing them a grip and stance when Jackson brought the club backward and nearly clocked me in Father-son bonding, a slice of happiness Proud to be an American Certainly it is hard to fathom a new school year is upon us already, but the calendar indicates it is time for former students to return to the halls of academia and new students to embark on an educational journey as their minds are molded into future leaders, politicians, teachers, doctors, lawyers and such. We all play a role in the education of our youths, whether or not you have children, grandchildren or other family members making their way through the educational system. Educating our children shouldnt be left to the teachers and administrators themselves. It starts at home, and we can certainly attest to the simple fact home life isnt always the best. However, we shouldnt let that deter us from making sure our children take advantage of the chances, where we as adults can look back now and say: I wish I would have studied harder. We encourage you to push your children to be excited about the opportunities before them, to be bold about taking every chance they have when it comes to receiving the best an education has to offer. Top-notch educations dont come from the prices we pay for our childrens education now. Public, private or homeschooled, we need to push our children to be better than us. This is the most exciting time in a childs life, when their minds are opened to learning about the three Rs, sciences, arts and history. This isnt about being the best athlete, nor is it about being the most popular in school. This is about taking advantages of the opportunities that come before you every day, about striving for the best the world has to offer. Everyone can, and should, be playing a part. Sure your children might have flown the nest years ago, but there are volunteer opportunities in the area to help. They range from serving as mentors, to listening to children read, to reading to youngsters. We shouldnt forget the numerous clubs or groups who do what they can to assist our children, whether it be stuffing backpacks in the local Food 4 Kids program, to the Kiwanis Club of Dunnellon. Both serve to enhance our youths future, and they do so in their own unique ways. Yet the goal is the same: make some childs day brighter. Sure, life is busy and there a lot of distractions but perhaps now is the time again for some traditional education assistance. Turn off the televisions, the computers, tablets and smart phones and turn on the minds of our children and engage them. Our youths will thank us in the years to come for being supportive and encouraging. We owe them that much. See LETTERS page 5 See OTHER page 5 See JERSEY page 5 Audrey Beem Jeff Bryan Editor

too. Im just glad they didnt wear Speedos. Im not even jealous of all the perfect bodies in those tiny little swimsuits. I am actually proud that the U.S. has so many good-looking people running around. The gymnastics team, wow, they were flawless! Theyre not only gold medal winners, but have definitely captured the hearts of America. I want Allyson Felixs abs, Kerri Walshs legs and Missy Franklins smile. Is that too much to ask for? The synchronized stuff was captivating. Its hard enough to do a dive with four flips, but then try to do one at the same exact time as somebody else. Well its nearly impossible. What about the doubleamputee runner? And The Bolt? How amazing were they? So I was thinking wouldnt it be great to be a part of the Olympics? To be the best in the world at something ... but then I starting thinking about my sporting abilities and I figured the closest I would ever get would be my couch. Thats OK, because sitting in my living room with the family and cheering them on is good enough for me. I, like millions of people all over the world, look forward to doing it all over again four years from now in Rio. Should we start a petition to try to convince Michael Phelps to come back or should we just leave him alone, let him enjoy his life, and always remember that we were a part of the crowd watching him and loving him back in 2004, 2008 and 2012? bows slimy, algae-covered bottom during the recent Cleanup Day sponsored by Rainbow River Conservation, Inc. Where once was white sand, native grasses, and abundant wildlife, there is significant damage. I was astonished to learn that this 5.7 mile-long river had more than 300,000 visitors in 2009-2010 alone. As a frequent swimmer, Ive also watched conditions deteriorate within hours after boaters, tubers, snorkelers, fishermen, swimmers and divers descend upon the Rainbow, in ways often detrimental to the fragile ecosystem. Ive noted worsening bottom conditions as one progresses past more densely populated areas where pesticide and fertilizer runoff concentrations are no doubt highest. Studies show exponential increases in river contaminants. While some efforts have been made to forestall further damage, not nearly enough is being done. Making matters worse, Governor Scott recently eliminated important grant money designated for a significant Rainbow River restoration plan. Rainbow River advocates are waging an uphill battle against a lack of local awareness and concern about its declining condition. Im stunned that this imperiled river that consultants hired by the Florida DEP say brings $8.4 million, $588,000 in state sales taxes, and 168 jobs to southwestern Marion County is overlooked in discussions about preserving and/or improving local economic health and quality of life. And have I just not been here long enough to see any letters to the editor urging local residents to wake up to whats happening in our own backyards? Volunteers from Rainbow River Conservation Inc. produced an extraordinary videotape over a year ago, Rainbow River Aquatic Vegetation that should be seen by everyone in or around the Rainbow River, or who lives within its economic reach. Yet, as of this writing, its been viewed only 185 times in a county of more than 330,000 people. What would Dunnellon, Rainbow Springs or the county be without the Rainbow River? Go to the RRC website at www.rainbowriverconservation.com/, click Education, then Rainbow River Aquatic Vegetation video to learn the importance of healing this river and how. Just because it was here long before us doesnt guarantee it will outlast us. Presently, odds are against it without actions to protect it, starting now. Kathryn Taubert, Rainbow Springs More to worry about than Romneys moneyA few weeks ago Patricia Hess wrote a long meandering and unfocused letter about foreigners calling to solicit business, and then ranted on Mitt Romney for having money in foreign accounts, and if elected, he will take our country down. Not sure if you can blame all that we are dealing with on him. If you are concerned about jobs leaving America, check out the trade agreements we have that take away tariffs on foreign trade and really, we Americans are supporting those jobs leaving because we want the cheapest merchandise and that would be foreign made. Why? Well, they dont have governments requiring employers to pay social security, workers compensation, health insurance, and the unending list of regulations OSHA, ANSI, EPA, et cetera, to do business. This is only a partial list! Even we Floridians dont buy local juice check the label, are you surprised? Check the meat counter, foreign food. Remember a while back the Made in China label was on bad steel, bad sheetrock, bad baby food and bad pet food? Do you think they have gotten better? We still buy from them. Down the road, we can thank ourselves for the lack of good jobs. Sure, we will have work, low paying jobs and service industry, because the industrial and factory work will have surely left the country. Take note, Chinese workers are in this country building a bridge in San Francisco. Oh, and Romney has money in foreign banks. Yeah, I guess I would too, it may be safer there and legal. You are worried about where Romney puts his money; I am more worried about where Obama got his!Linda Hall DunnellonRiverland News, Thursday, August 16, 2012 5 000C69S 000CBWO Loving, Caring, Christian Environment At Reasonable Rates! 352.489.7716 20831 Powell Road Hours of Operation: 7am-6pm, Monday-Friday Spots Are Available Infants through Pre-K4 Dunnellon Christian Academys Daycare/Pre-Academy Call our new daycare director Dawn Stephens for a personalized tour 000CBCW See Great .

Daddy getting clobbered and doing something funny always draws an outburst of laughter, always par for the course, pun intended. Needless to say, I got quite a workout in on the range in the mid-afternoon sunlight. As I bounced back and forth to watch their stances and swings, they giggled with delight. Watch me, daddy, they shouted. Both doing better than I could, their shots went straight. Mine generally find the trees, beach and water. More often than not, my shots dont even go straight. Perhaps my boys were the ones giving lessons. A parent can enjoy the sports experience with their children by getting out of the way and letting them have fun. JERSEY continued from page 4 OTHER continued from page 4 CERT training to start Sept. 13 Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training will begin Thursday, Sept. 13 at the Marion County Sheriffs Office, 692 N.W. 30th Ave., Ocala. This is an eight-session training class, which is available either as an afternoon class, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. or as an evening class, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. The afternoon and evening classes run concurrently and attendance can be mixed, depending upon availability. Only one class can be missed in the eight-session series and the CPR and last class is mandatory. The CERT program is made up of volunteers under the direction of the Division of Emergency Management of the sheriffs office. The purpose of CERT is to train and certify volunteers to be first responders in their communities in the event of a disaster such as a hurricane or tornado. The CERT training includes basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, assessment and treatment of life-threatening conditions, light search of structural and non-structural damage, psychology of the injured and terrorism. Studies of behavior following a disaster have shown that volunteers perform more effectively if they have had prior training and planning in how to function as a team.

Riverland News, Thursday, August 16, 2012 7 Now is the time to write that Florida song. The annual Will McLean Foundation New Florida Song Contest begins Sept. 1. Songs may be entered until Dec. 31, 2012, and submitted to The Will McLean New Florida Song Contest, P.O. Box 621568, Orlando, FL 32862. The song must be about Florida and must be clearly identifiable as such. Songs may be any type of music, and must be the original work of the entrant. Those who wish to enter need not be skilled musicians. There are songs in the hearts of everyone. The songs entered into the contest are not judged on the slickness of their presentation. However, a good recording showcases the songs to the best advantage. Since its beginning in 1992, the contest has generated hundreds of songs about every conceivable aspect of Florida: its history, land, water, characters, weather and creatures. Songs have been serious, comical, romantic, and inspirational. They have included folk, country, rap, blues, jazz and classical. Entries arrive from various areas of the United States, but most come from Florida. Five judges rate the songs on authenticity, originality and emotional impact, as well as technical aspects. Each person may submit up to three songs. Cash prizes are awarded the top three entries. Winners are invited to perform on the main stage at the annual Will McLean Music Festival, March 8 to 10, 2013, at the Sertoma Youth Ranch in Brooksville. All who enter will have an opportunity to share their songs in song circles at the festival. The Will McLean Foundation has produced the first in a series of compact discs featuring the finalists of each year. For information, visit www.willmclean.com or call 352-465-7208. equitable as applied to users located in the unincorporated area who were served until 2012 by Rainbow Springs Utilities (RSU), which was purchased by the city, but is located entirely in unincorporated Marion County and not physically connected to any other preexisting city of Dunnellon utility lines or treatment facilities. Ralf Brookes, a Cape Coral-based attorney, wrote in the court filings the circuit court has jurisdiction pursuant to Florida Statutes Sections 86.011(2012) (Declaratory Judgments) and 180.191 (2012) (Limitation on Rates Charged Consumer Outside City Limits) Florida Statutes (2012). According to the suit, a statutory surcharge of up to 25 percent for unincorporated users available pursuant to 180.191(1) was intended to recover funds expended for the original provision of water and sewer capital facility service that is physically connected and extended to unincorporated areas. The statutory surcharge under 180.191(1) was not intended to apply to users of a pre-existing facility located entirely outside the municipal boundaries of the city of Dunnellon when there is no physical extension or expansion of physical service connections to the city of Dunnellon. The suit further stated no additional improvements, no additional transmission lines, no additional treatment facilities were required by the city to operate the RSU facilities located entirely outside city boundaries and serving only non-residents. According to the suit, no additional cost of delivery of utility services to those RSU users outside the municipal limits were incurred by the city of Dunnellon, and there were no substantial expenditures for capital improvements which were brought about by the demand of non-city residents. The documents state the city of Dunnellon water and sewer rates for users of RSU facilities located entirely in unincorporated Marion County, include a 25 percent surcharge that is not warranted because the RSU facilities are not physically connected to the Citys other water and sewer utility lines or treatment facilities, but instead are located wholly and solely outside the municipal boundaries with no physically connected to any other pre-existing city water or sewer utility facilities. Prior to the sale and purchase of RSU by the city of Dunnellon, RSU rates were regulated by the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC). Municipal utility rates, including rates and surcharges outside municipal boundaries, and annual increases are not subject to state oversight or regulatory approval by the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC). However, municipal utility rates are subject to review by the courts under 180.191 Florida Statutes. The suit contends the citys water and sewer rates for users of RSU facilities are more than 50 percent higher than the water and sewer rates approved by the PSC for RSU prior to the purchase of RSU by the city of Dunnellon and establishment of the new water and sewer rate, including a 25 percent surcharge by the City Council. According to the suit, former RSU customer users were not, and are not, voters within the municipality, and have no representative(s) on the City Council to represent their interest as unincorporated non-residents with regard to the establishment of water and sewer rate, including a 25 percent surcharge, now charged to users of RSU facilities. The suit states the rate and annual rate increases, including a 25 percent surcharge, on all of the users of RSU is not justified by any difference in the cost of furnishing services or any prior expenses incurred by the city of Dunnellon since no connection, expansion or extension of utility lines or treatment facilities to RSU was required, and the imposition of the 25 percent surcharge is therefore contrary to the intent of Florida Statute Section 180.191. The suit alleges the rate, annual increase and 25 percent surcharge on users of the pre-existing standalone RSU utility located entirely outside the municipal boundaries lacks a rational nexus to the reasonable cost of the services provided, creates an unreasonable windfall for the city that is unwarranted under the facts and circumstances of this case. According to the suit, residents want the court to: Declare that water and sewer rates and annual increases, including a 25 percent surcharge, established by the city of Dunnellon are unwarranted, unreasonable, and not just and not equitable as applied to users of the RSU facilities located entirely in unincorporated Marion County and not physically connected to any existing city of Dunnellon water and sewer utility lines or treatment facilities; Quash and enjoin any unreasonable or unwarranted rates or surcharges set for users of the RSU facilities located entirely in unincorporated Marion County by the city of Dunnellon; Return, refund or credit any unreasonable rates, including the 25 percent surcharge; Award statutory treble damages pursuant to Florida Statutes 180.191(4) (2012) (Limitation on Rates Charged Consumer Outside City Limits); Award statutory attorneys fees pursuant to Florida Statutes 180.191(4) (2012) (Limitation on Rates Charged Consumer Outside City Limits); and Any other relief deemed appropriate by the court.

According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Lt.

Slattery was traveling in the inside westbound lane when Lonnie Gene Harpst, 43, of Orange Park, who was traveling northbound, entered the intersection just as Lt. Slattery was passing through when Harpst struck the engines left side. Harpst and the bicycle came to rest in the intersection facing south. MCFR personnel transported the 43-yearold to Shands Regional Medical Center, where he was was listed in serious condition. Fire Chief Joe Campfield was called to the scene. Once Lt. Slattery was cleared to leave by law enforcement authorities, Chief Campfield transported Lt. Slattery to a nearby medical faculty.

Iam not sure who invented summer vacation but I think they deserve a Nobel Peace Prize. Every year is worth the intense strain when there is a summer vacation to look forward to. Ah, summer vacation. The freedom of not having anything to do. No schedule in my face. No appointments frustrating me. Just an agenda of fun and more fun and dont forget the eating. Both the aGracious Mistress of the Parsonage and me got up early to begin the drive to the airport to take us to our vacation location. I was so full of energy I could not sit still. It was then that I broke into singing, comfortably off key, a Carpenters song much to the agitation of my wife. Weve only just begun, White lace and promises, A kiss for luck and were on our way. All my wife could do was stare at me. Finally, she said, You sure are excited. Ive never seen you so excited. Are you sure youre all right? I could not have been more all righter. All I could think of was a week before me surrounded by grandchildren I have not seen for over a year. How old is...? I went through all the grandchildren. It is easy to forget how old kids are because every year their age changes. When you get to be my age, it is hard to keep up with all of these changes. A week of stuffing them with all the candy I could carry. Taking them out to a restaurant and showing them the proper use of the drinking straw and the fine art of a spitball battle. After all, it is a grandfathers solemn duty to teach his grandchildren the fine art of shenaniganism. Where else are they going to learn it? Their grandmother? I dont think so. We finally arrived at the airport, parked our car, and proceeded to the check-in counter. I am not sure my feet touched the ground, so excited was I to get on our way. Slow down, my wife pleaded. I cant keep up with you. We finally arrived at the check-in counter with our baggage and one of the attendants asked me a simple question. I hate it when people ask me a question when I am in one of my silly moods. Believe me; I was in one of my silliest silly moods at this time. Sir, the attendant asked me very seriously, do you have anything perishable or flammable in your luggage?10 Riverland News, Thursday, August 16, 2012 0809 RIV THE CITY OF DUNNELLON CITY COUNCIL will hold a Quasi Judicial Public Hearing on Monday, August 27, 2012 at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall, 20750 River Dr., Dunnellon, FL 34431 to consider the adoption of: ZONING CHANGE #REZ2012-04 INCLUDING VARIANCES DESCRIBED HEREIN ORDINANCE #ORD2012-09 AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF DUNNELLON, FLORIDA; AMENDING THE ZONING OF THE DUNNELLON CODE OF ORDINANCES BY SPECIFICALLY AMENDING SECTION 6.3 ENTITLED, ZONING DISTRICT MAPS, TO REZONE THE PROPERTY LEGALLY DESCRIBED AS SEC 35 TWP 16 RGE 18 PLAT BOOK F PAGE 027 RAINBOW RIVER ACRES BLK G LOTS 4.5.6, DUNNELLON, FLORIDA, FROM R3A, RESIDENTIAL MEDIUM DENSITY TO NBR, NEIGHBORHOOD BUSINESS RESIDENTIAL, WITHIN THE CORPORATE LIMITS OF THE CITY OF DUNNELLON, FLORIDA; PROVIDING FOR SEVERABILITY; PROVIDING FOR REPEAL OF INCONSISTENT ORDINANCES; AND PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

With silliness smeared all over my mug I said, I sure do. I got a Bible in there and it is Dyn-O-Mite. And, I had the audacity to smile very broadly. Then it happened. Someone said, Did he say dynamite? Wheres the dynamite? The attendant said, He said the dynamite was in his briefcase. Suddenly, lights went on, buzzers began ringing, men in uniforms surrounded me, and two grabbed and subdued me. In a few moments, the hazmat men arrived asking where the dynamite was. The man in charge pointed to my briefcase and said, Its in the briefcase. They begin moving people away while the hazmat men came in to remove the briefcase with the alleged dynamite. At this time, I was absolutely stunned. Every ounce of silliness had drained from my person and I knew I was about to go to jail. Finally, the senior security guard came and looked at me. Where did you say the dynamite was, sir? I stammered and stuttered but finally I said, I said my Bible was dynamite. He stared at me. Look me up and down, glared at me with eyes that burned into my very soul. Then he spoke. Would you by any chance be a minister? He said rather gruffly. Yes sir, I stammered as if my life depended upon what I was going to say, I am a minister, a preacher of the gospel. I thought the last part might do something for me. At least it was a shot, excuse me, a try. He glared at me and shouted, False alarm. Just another crazy preacher. As he walked away, I could hear him muttering under his breath, Where do all these crazy preachers come from? The terminal finally quieted down, I went through the inspection, and I must say, I am not complaining mind you, but the pat down was a little longer and rougher than I remembered it being in the past. They stripped me down almost to my birthday suit. Thank God for wrinkles. As I walked down the aisle on the plane, I could hear people whispering, Thats him. Thats the crazy preacher with the dynamite. I finally sat down next to my wife who was staring out the window. In a few minutes the plane took off and as we reached our altitude she, while still staring out the window, said to me, Next time well take separate planes. She paused for a moment and then said, In fact, will take separate airports. I think I am going to stick to what the Bible says. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12 KJV).Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P.O. Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

Parents and students can expect a review of schoolwide procedures and introduction of individual classroom expectations during the first few days of school as well as classroom activities designed to establish relationships between teachers and students, McAteer said. Our staff is very excited about our students returning to school and they are looking forward to an exciting and productive year. Delbert Smallridge replaces Jane Ashman at Dunnellon Middle School. Smallridge is a longtime assistant principal in the school district, most recently holding the position at Lake Weir Middle School for the past five years. Ashman isnt a new principal, nor is she a new face at Romeo Elementary, where she takes over for the recently retired Kathy Hultman. Ashman spent two years as an assistant principal at Romeo before serving the past eight as principal at Dunnellon Middle School. Smallridge, who met the full faculty and staff Monday, called the day fantastic. Today was a fantastic day, it was the first day to meet all of faculty members; nice to get to put faces with names, he explained. Its been a really, really great day for me. This is something that has been a goal for a long time. Its been a number of years coming. It just feels really good. Dunnellon Middle School is one of the best-kept secrets. We have a fantastic crew here. Im just impressed every single day. The quality of the individuals here; Im looking forward to getting to know them better each and every day. Smallridge said perhaps the biggest change for the upcoming school year for students will be the adoption of four set of core values: Tigers ROAR, which breaks down as such: R Respect; O Own It; A Active Learner; and R Responsible. These are things were going to be teaching the children, Smallridge said. Its something that is going to ongoing for years to come. Well probably take a core value each quarter and break it down and teach the students to do what they can to help reinforce what each one means. Smallridge said Monday will be the cherry on top of the cake. Its a culmination of many, many years of working in this direction, he said. It finally feel into place. Im probably going to be speechless While those are perhaps the biggest changes locally, there will be two constants this fall as Fredina Wilkerson enters her third year as principal at Dunnellon Elementary and Kristy Nelson is back for the third year to guide the faculty and staff at Dunnellon Christian Academy. Were all excited, we have a great staff, said Nelson, who noted there was a pair of staff changes for the upcoming year. Parents are excited, too. Nelson said the school will host an open house starting at 7 p.m. today. Teachers are already for the students, they are excited about the school year beginning, Nelson said, noting enrollment at the school is up this year. Our numbers are up and thats a great thing. Dunnellon Police Chief Joanne Black encourages motorists to use caution, not only Monday, but throughout the first week of school as they acclimate themselves with seeing buses and students at bus stops. I want them to prepare, leave a little early and be a little patient, she said. School buses will slow down traffic. Watch for kids, because sometimes they sit on the curbs or they are walking across the street. Use caution when going through school zones. Please, drive with caution and be very patient. We just want everyone to be careful. Well have extra patrols out the whole week. School zones will be active again, remember to slow down. People do forget, so we want them to be aware. The speeds get reduced and fines get doubles. This is all about the childrens safety. Black also issued words of wisdom for students at bus stops or walking to them. Cross at the intersections, she explained. If youre with a younger brother or sister, make sure you help them across the street. Dont walk into the streets in between cars, motorists might not see you. We wish everyone a safe and great school year.

Horsing Around SafelyHorseback riding is a lot of fun. But before you gallop off, take a look at these guidelines to help make your ride safe and more enjoyable. Before you start Put on a safety helmet or hard hat. Wear sensible boots, like hiking or riding boots. Check the horse Make sure the horses chin strap is done up right. Keep the reins in good order. Adjust stirrup leathers to be the right height for you. Around the horse Dont get too close to the horses back legs. If you must, talk to the horse so it knows you are there. Mount and dismount from the right side. During the ride Enjoy your ride and dont ride too fast. Dont let your horse get too close to the one in front of you. Keep your feet in the stirrups and your heels down. Make sure you or your horse do not get too hot or cold. In case you fall If you feel like youre falling, dont stiffen up. Dont use your hands to break your fall. Curl in a ball when you hit the ground, then roll away from the horse. If you have any questions or concerns, talk to the people where youre riding. What a Pest!They are only 116 to 18 inches long when full grown, but even at that size, fleas cause a lot of problems. They dont just bug cats and dogs; they can cause humans medical problems, too, like allergies and tapeworms. The dark reddish-brown insects are almost flat from side to side, so they can move through hair, fur and feathers pretty easily. Fleas dont have wings; however, they have three pairs of legs, and the back legs are longer, which helps them jump. They can leap up to 7 inches vertically and 13 inches horizontally, which is pretty far considering their size. The mouths of fleas have piercing, sucking parts, and there are spines on their bodies that point backward, along with a row of spines on their faces called a genal comb. Adult fleas cannot live or lay eggs without a meal of blood. Once they have that meal, they can live off of it for awhile. A female flea can lay 15 to 20 eggs a day after a blood meal, and she can lay up to 600 eggs during her life.

As it stands now, the city covers the cost of an individual health insurance plan. Currently, the city pays $480.35 for monthly insurance but changing plans means the cost drops to $473.32. According to City Clerk Dawn Bowne, 47 of the citys 52 employees use an individual plan with four employees insuring themselves and one family member. She said only one city employee insures their whole family through the city, and in doing so picks up the difference in the cost. Switching to FMIT means that employee would pay $893.05, a savings of about $7 per month. Bowne, who told the Council she favored the city using Blue Cross Blue Shield, said she had not polled city employees about what plan they wanted. Either way, Im not going to try and sway you, she told the Council. Eventually, Mayor Fred Ward halted the conversation and asked pointedly what the staffs recommendation was for insurance carriers. It is the recommendation of the staff to use FMIT, Bowne said. In other action, the Council: Delayed approving $35,000 in funds toward a sewer line and lift station for the new Boys & Girls Club facility to be constructed along U.S. 41. Utilities Director Eddie Esch said the current price quotes to Boys & Girls Club officials seemed high. He said through his own conservative estimates it would appear they could get it done for about $35,000. Currently, city officials said, the cost engineers for the project have quotes Boys & Girls Club officials a price tag of $58,000. The Council directed Esch and Community Development Director Harold Horne to meet with Boys & Girls Club officials and encourage them to have that portion of the project resigned. Once its been completed, the Council would review helping to pay a cost of the project. Approved purchase requests for the following items: Maintenance agreement for headend equipment for $4,244.77 with Sanforce; and requested to increase purchase order for maintenance agreement for the Cisco Core Router originally approved July 23 by Council. The total amount is $25,500. Appointed the following members to the Citizens Advisory Task Force (CATF) as required for the 2012 Community Development Block Grant application: Janie Keele, Terry Dunham, Valerie PorterHanchar, Robert Cubbage and Sherry Smith-Evans. Approved an addendum to agreement with the special magistrate to a maximum of one-hour travel time per visit. The special magistrate will be reimbursed $175 per hour of travel time, but the time cannot exceed more than one hour. Approved an addendum with Florida Municipal Services for a two-year renewal of a contract for building inspection services.
