Local teen models for book fair magazine People usually hide from the camera when their picture is taken, but for Ruthie Johnson it is the complete opposite. The 13-year-old Dunnellon Middle School eighth-grader is a dancer and model. After dancing for 10 years for Victoria School of Dance, learning forms such as ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, lyrical, and competitive dance competitions with the VSD Rainbow Dance Troupes competitive team, Johnson decided she wanted to broaden her horizon even more. Victoria School of Dance referenced her to get into modeling about three years ago and Johnson quickly accepted it would broaden her horizon, and has been modeling ever since. I never thought it would be such a good tribute in my life, Johnson said. It has given me so many opportunities the past couple of years that I would have never had the chance to do. There, Johnson learned individual and group runway, television comFred Ward is keeping his hat in the political ring. The two-term mayor of Dunnellon filed his paperwork Monday to seek a third term to lead the City Council. The incumbent has served for mayor the past five years, having run for Seat 1. As of Tuesday, Ward was the lone candidate to file all of his paperwork, said Mandy Roberts, assistant city clerk. Dee Brown, the Marion County supervisor of elections, must verify Wards signatures as well as those of any other potential candidates. Ward said he chose to run again because hed like to see many of the policies he and his counterparts have to put into place come to fruition. He said several of them are just now starting to pay off. As one who started out on this journey, you would like to finish with the sun to your back; Id still like to be involved, he said. As far as his proudest moment, Ward said it would be tough to choose just one. I dont know if you could boil it down to a single moment, he explained. I ran on the platform Id like to see the city run more like a business and I think thats happened. Before, it didnt necessarily run like a business, but now we have consistency and procedures. Thats helped our productivity immensely. Weve gotten a lot of productivity out of folks, because weve allowed them to be productive. Thats Fred Ward: Mayor filed to run for re-election. Internet service shuts down Main Street Broadband, an Atlanta, Ga.based company, which began offering 4G wireless broadband service in Dunnellon and the outlying areas in April, shut its services down Aug. 1. Main Street said the shutdown was the result of its inability to obtain re-financing of its loans. Company officials widely touted its services to those seeking to upgrade their Internet services and had hoped to compete against Greenlight Dunnellon Communications. When it moved into the area, Mike Mies, the cofounder and CEO of the company, said at the time Dunnellon is a key market. We are pleased to be able to provide affordable high-speed Internet access to the residents and businesses in and around Dunnellon. We know that Dunnellon is a market with customers looking for a new internet option. Als TV Shop, which was also an authorized dealer in Dunnellon, said officials with Main Street never even told them ahead of time they were folding up shop. The infrastructure, such as the towers, remains in place though, including a tower along County Road 39 and near the U.S. 41 and State Road intersection. City Manager Lisa Algiere said officials had heard about Main Street going out of business, but that the city has no interest in purchasing the new defunct companys infrastructure. They provided wireless service, which is not very reliable and would not fit into our infrastructure, she explained.

Busing delays lone problem on first day back to school Monday was a day of firsts for many. For some, it meant the beginning of their 13-year trek through the Marion County Public School system. For some, it marked the first day in middle or high school. For some, it marked the first day of their careers in education. For Delbert Smallridge and Ken McAteer, it was their first day to welcome students to campus in their roles as principals. The longtime educators greeted students making their way onto campus at either Dunnellon Middle or Dunnellon High schools, where they are, respectively, leading the charge this year after earning promotions this summer. Delbert spent a portion of his morning chatting with students as they waited for their schedules, and checking in on several new teachers who awaited the arrival of their students. We all had a wonderful first day at DMS, Smallridge explained. It was a relatively uneventful day. I really enjoyed seeing the lifeblood of the school start to flow ... a day that I have waited on for some time now. McAteer, who took over for former Principal Michelle Lewis, this past July, said there were no major issues at the school. The lone problem was delays in busing, which is typical the first few days of a new school year. The first day was very successful, he said. It was a great day. Its a great community. Dunnellon High has some great kids.

(TSC) held its nationwide events for its Pet Appreciation Week (P.A.W.). on Saturday, the TSC of Dunnellon chose to support its canine friends by presenting the second Annual Dog Days of Dunnellon. The event attracted 200 animal lovers despite the threat of storms. Nearly 50 canine participants entered the contests for Ugliest, Cutest, Smallest, Biggest, Best Trick and Best Singing Dog. Joan Eubank of TSC, overseeing the event that featured eight dog rescues and one cat rescue organization, was delighted by the turnout. The dog contests were judged by 4-H, albeit a newly-founded community horse club for young people. This is a good kickoff to our second club year, Club President Emily Dampman, 18, said. Everyone I know with horses has dogs as well I have four. We came to help as volunteers and learned this morning we are the event beneficiaries. Dampman and her club members were also judges for the contests. Fred and Dorothy Bischof brought their Pitbull/Labrador mix, Maggie, who won Biggest Dog. They adopted Maggie from Citrus County Animal Services (CCAS) and are very proud of their gentle giant and know that their nine grandchildren will be too. Diminutive Jackapoo Tootsies owner, Kelly Gozdecki, was also proud of her poochs win as Smallest Dog. Lori Fausetts top ranking, champion Australian Shepherd Wish, won Best Singing Dog and Best Trick. Rocky, owned by Sarah and Ronnie Glass, was similarly awarded for being the Ugliest Dog at the show. All the winners received a trophy, framed certificate and $25 TSC gift card. Fundraising was assisted by CCAS represented by their volunteer support group: Friends of Citrus County Animal Services (FOCCAS), which offered dog washing and toe nail trims; Dr. Paul Mack, DVM, and Dunnellon Animal Hospital provided low cost vaccinations and microchips; and Levy Animal Friends (LeAF), offered breakfast, lunch and refreshments. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, August 23, 2012 000CDB3 T r i n i t y T r i n i t y Trinity V i l l a s V i l l a s Villas Senior Citizen Complex Taking applications for studio & 1 bedroom apartments.

not a moment, thats a process. You dont reach that overnight you have to steward that. Morale is a big deal to me if morale is good then employees are happy. The Dunnellon City Council on Monday will then approve the qualifying list of candidates for the November General Election. Councilwoman Penny Fleeger and Councilman Erik Collop had both filed their form Appointment of Campaign Treasurer and Designation of Campaign Depository for Candidates. In filing this form, both are allowed to open campaign accounts. The qualifying period ends at noon Aug. 24. Petitions as well as the proper financial disclosure and campaign forms must be submitted to City Clerk Dawn Bowne no later than noon Friday. The cost for qualifying will be $45, plus 1 percent of councils annual salary, which equals $18, for a total of $63. The three seats up for grabs include Mayor Ward, who holds Seat No. 1 and the title of mayor, and Penny Fleeger, who holds seat No. 5. The winner will secure a four-year on the Dunnellon City Council after the council approved extended terms in 2010. The other open spot includes Seat No. 4, now held by Collop who was selected to fill-in for the late Frederick C. Stark. Whoever wins this seat will serve until 2014 when the term was scheduled to officially end. If Ward qualifies and no one files to run against him, he would be sworn-in at the first meeting after the November General Election, which is scheduled for Nov. 6. The same holds true if Fleeger and Collop file their remaining paperwork and they are unopposed. mercials, monologues, participated in showcases and agent interviews. Johnson worked with Background Entertainment, Central Florida Talents and 247 Heinz productions. She also attended runway workshops with JZI Mathews-JZI productions and LA Films and TV, and it didnt end there. Doing scene studies with Nick Loren, who worked very closely with John Travolta as seen in the movie From Paris with Love and Wild Hogs. Johnson was also an extra in the movie Dolphin Tales and Big Mike. I was so excited when the Central Florida Talents notified Mrs. Sheila Poeler about the fall edition 2012 scholastics magazine photo shoot, she said, noting Mrs. Poeler is the owner of Ocala models. The photo shoot was March 29 at Tuskawilla Middle School in Oviedo. Participating in several classes for modeling, Johnson decided to drop out of the classes so she can focus on her dancing. In the picture featured in the booklet, Johnson and another model, Christian MacConnell from Indialantic, are putting up stars, which have names of books for accelerated reading on the wall. The advertisting promotes students around Marion County to read more and do the accelerated reading program. Schools around Marion County will be viewing the picture Johnson is featured in this upcoming school year. I am looking forward to furthering my career as a dancer and model, Johnson said.

She said all children made it home safely the first day. She added one change was made this year and that was to have the children eat in the cafeteria instead of the classrooms. The teachers loved it, she explained. Children are not usually the neatest eaters and many times there were lots of spills and tears in the classrooms. We had none of those issues this year. Ashman said one concern she had the first day of school was parents arriving too early to pick up their children. We have nowhere for them to park, she said. It does cause a major traffic problem on the street out front. We will work on that in the first two weeks. Districtwide, there were no major issues reported, said Kevin Christian, public relations and communications officer. Some buses were delayed because of normal first-day procedures including longer-thananticipated pick-up times at new bus stops and drivers placing colored armbands on students for proper identification, Christian said. Transportation issues are a common and expected occurrence during the first two weeks of class. These issues are normally resolved within the first few days of class, he wrote in a news release. All told Monday, 39,267 students showed up for their first day. This number is 214 students fewer than last years first-day count and about 6 percent under the projected peak count of 41,847, Christian said. As usual, the daily attendance figure will climb over the next two months for the official state count in October, he explained.

C lose to 15 years ago I looked around the room one Christmas morning and announced that our family was getting boring. I was met with looks of shock and disbelief. What I meant to say, or should have said, was our family is getting boring because there are no kids to liven it up. We were all grown-ups and holidays such as Christmas didnt have that spark and excitement that they do when children are around. After adults unwrap their gifts, what else is there to do? One year, we ended up at the movies. Excitement was definitely lacking that year. Then my daughter happily obliged my wishes and gave me a granddaughter. Now Im afraid were almost getting to that point again. Oh, of course, we still have my grandson, James, who is more than enough fun, excitement and laughter rolled into one. But he is rapidly growing and soon wont be our baby anymore. Plus, its hard sharing him between all the grown-ups who want him. We also have my two little nieces, who I love to pieces, but they live in Iowa now and we only see them once a year, if that. In fact my oldest niece, Victoria, has her 10th birthday tomorrow and, unfortunately, we wont be together to celebrate it with her. All we can do is send gifts and Skype, so we can watch as she opens them. Shes also my goddaughter and I remember what an honor it was the day they asked me. We take godparenting very seriously in our Italian culture. We call each other twin, because she looks exactly like I did when I was her age. Except I was a permanent size 6X, and she fortunately is a normal sized girl. So if they were here in Florida enjoying all the holidays with us I may not feel this way, but theyre not and I do. My first grandbaby, Dominique, will soon be 14, which does not seem possible. She doesnt need us around the way she used to. She would rather hang out with her friends than celebrate with us and the absence is very much noticed. I know 100 percent without a shadow of a doubt that I cannot have another baby. Im equally sure that my youngest daughter, Alicia, is done too. Therefore, it now falls on my daughter, Mandy, to be the chosen one. We keep trying to convince her that we need one more. We will be here to hold it, take care of it and babysit. All she has to do is get pregnant, carry the child for nine months and then birth it. Thats a great deal, wouldnt you say? Shes such a good mom, too. Her son is so in love with her. She has River views City needs to itemize its water bills The letter from Mr. Russo in the Aug. 16 edition of the Riverland News was right on. I waited for six months for the city of Dunnellon to send me a schedule of the water rates. Like Mr. Russo, I would like to know how they arrived at the amount on the bill. This is the only bill that we receive that is not itemized. As a matter of fact, this is the only utility bill that I have ever received that was not itemized. I had to go to the Greenlight offices to get a rate schedule and since it included the 25 percent surcharge, it isnt an accurate rate schedule. When Rainbow Springs owned the utility, they sent the bill out on a post card and managed to itemize the charges on half of the post card. I would really appreciate an itemized bill that includes the meter charge, the base sewer charge, the water use charge, the sewer use charge and the 25 percent surcharge listed as separate charges and an accurate rate schedule. Glenda Hinz Rainbow Springs Do residents really want four more years of the same?Can Dunnellon, Rainbow Springs, Rio Vista and Juliette Falls stand another four years of incompetent city management? The residents of the city can vote and run for city council while residents of the other communities can only be victimized by the mismanagement and taxation without representation of the city government. Like it or not, the city is in hock to the tune of at least $22 million, more than enough for some cities around the country to declare bankruptcy; $7.5 million of this debt is due to the Greenlight fiasco where the citys share of state excise taxes is encumbered for collateral. The rest is bonding for water/sewer projects. Meanwhile, the citys ad valorem tax rate remains substantially higher than other cities throughout the region and likewise for the water/sewer utility rates. Is it any wonder the residents of Rainbow Springs are angry enough to file a lawsuit against the city? Only you, the residents of the city of Dunnellon, can put a stop to this foolishness.

In the beginning, when my family and I made the decision that I would run for sheriff, we had no idea what lied ahead and what was in store for us. The political arena was not an area which we were familiar with at all. We immediately decided to use the colors of red, white and blue as our campaign colors because they represented unity, bravery and the American spirit. From that day, we were proud of the decision we made especially when we watched the way that these colors united so many people in this community. My family and I are so honored to have been a part of this journey and we have absolutely no regrets. If not for this campaign, there are countless wonderful and amazing people that we may never have met as our paths might not have ever crossed. But God brought these wonderful people into our lives and we now have new friendships that will last forever and for this, we are blessed. The decision to run for office is not just about being a law enforcement officer and working your way through the ranks, it is about what molds you into who you are, what you stand for and the people that your surround yourself with. I have been blessed in my life in so many ways and so blessed to have had your support. There is no way that a person could go on this journey alone. A person must have the support of great people and I had that since the start of the campaign almost 1 1/2 years ago. Sangi, Jason, Alesa and I began this journey together as a family but our family has now grown tremendously. I had the support of people that I have known and respected for many years such as Fred Latorre, Tommy Bibb, Evon Colchiski, Don Maines and Don Moreland, and I can never repay them or their families for the sacrifices that they made. All that I can say is thank you for believing in me and for all that they did for both myself and for this community. There were also many friends that I had not seen in many years who stepped up and dedicated themselves Fomers sheriffs candidate thanks voters for support T he wet weather has seen an outbreak of mosquitoes in and around our homes, and gardens. Spaying helps to kill and deter the insects from too much biting, but the deet in the sprays is not something everyone wants to spray every day and top up all day. Encouraging natural predators will help keep some of the population down and at the same time keep the wildlife populations up. Having a bat box in your garden can help to encourage these natural predators to live, and breed in our gardens, and areas. A bat box works on the same principle as a bird box, except that bats prefer a wedgeshaped roost and enter through a gap underneath rather than a hole at the front. Using cheap, untreated wood, this box will give bats the perfect place to shelter and roost in your garden. If youre lucky, they may even give birth and raise their young there, so make sure you site it in a sheltered spot. Materials: Using a pencil, divide and cut the plank into the following sized pieces: 40 centimeters by 15 centimeters (back); 23 centimeters by 20 centimeters (roof); and 23 centimeters by 15 centimeters (front). Finally cut a piece 20 centimeters by 34 centimeters and cut it diagonally to create two triangles for the sides of the bat box. Place the backboard on a flat surface and cut ridges into it, 2 millimeters deep every 0.5 centimeter, to make a ladder for the bats to climb up. Take one of the side triangles and measure 12.5 centimeters from the acute angle along the longest length. Draw a horizontal line across the triangle at this point and cut off the smallest part. Repeat with the other side. Nail the two side panels to the front panel of the bat box. Sit the roof on top and push up the backboard to check for a tight fit. Nail on the backboard. Nail on the roof and an eyelet for hanging and hang above ground on a tree, post or house wall. Hummingbirds and blue birds are also natural predators so keep your garden wildlife friendly and pest free. Planting lemon grass or catnip that can be then cut and rubbed on you, as a natural deterrent is useful. One idea was to put a dryer sheet in the waistband of your clothes, and the smell will prevent the insects biting. The summer is coming to an end, so soon it will be right to begin getting broccoli, cauliflowers and brassica seeds planted for fall and winter planting. Lettuce and other vegetables will enjoy the cooler temps and crops can be grown in time before the frost. Contact Tracy Jenner, the Riverland Gardener, at tracy jenner1@gmail.com.

DHS volleyball aims to build tradition under Webers tenure Practices have been few and far between, techniques are off, but conditioning is coming along well and team chemistry is developing thus far for the 2012 Dunnellon High School volleyball team. However, with the Lady Tigers season-opening match four days away Monday at Ocala Vanguard even first-year coach Terry Weber knows theres plenty of work to be done. The official varsity roster wasnt completed until after Tuesdays practice, giving those on the top-tier squad just three days of practice time together. Weber though isnt overly concerned; she knew there would be a few bumps in the road when she received a phone call from Dunnellon Athletic Director Dunnellon High volleyball player Lexie Forrester works on her passing skills during a drill at practice.

With their jamboree game scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday at home against Lecanto High School, the team has been preparing hard. Many changes have been made to the football program at Dunnellon. Former Dunnellon High standout Roger Sibbald, a member of the back-to-back state championship teams in the late 1970s, is a new addition to the coaching staff. Another former player, Tommy Sutton, the offensive line coach for the past several years, is now the teams offensive coordinator. There are about 20 new players who have been added to the varsity team. Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley expects big things from sophomore Kane Parks and junior Dustin Molina, who will play at the varsity level this fall. They will play big roles now that they have made the varsity level, said Beasley, whose team finished 6-4 a year ago and missed the playoffs. Parks believes the team can go far this season. We have a really good team and Im excited to get Photos by JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon coach Frank Beasley watches his teams offensive unit run through a play Monday afternoon during practice.

this year started, he said. Returning starters for the varsity team include; seniors Jordan Boley, Conner Wentz, Alex Stetz, Andre Jackson and Jvonn Swoll. Swoll and Parks are both fighting for time at for the tailback position while Michael Roberson and Shane Williams are scrapping it out for a line backer position. Beasley said the team has an outstanding offensive and defensive line that should be their biggest strength. Beasley said depth will be key this season. I believe the team is a lot more mature this year, they understand what we are looking from them, he said. With the goal set for the year of being district champions, Dunnellon will not go down without a fight. I believe it will be a really good year with all the senior leadership and will we have this year, he said. Bruce Wentz when he called two weeks ago offering her the position after former coach Karen Noffsinger abruptly resigned. Turning to Weber to lead Dunnellon was a no-brainer, Wentz said. Having spent the past two seasons as an assistant, the 1986 Dunnellon High graduate was familiar with the program and the players. Both her daughters, Casey and Jody, played for the Lady Tigers a year ago. Her youngest daughter, Jody, is expected to a key contributor for the team this year. Her enthusiasm, her organizational skills, her knowledge of the program and kids, they were all positives, Wentz said. The lone setback, Weber said, was the lack of opportunities for the players to attend camps together throughout the summer months. Still, she said, the team returns four starters from a squad that posted one victory a year ago. Theyre bonding well, Weber said. Theres a lack of drama. They seem to be meshing well as a group. They understand the team concept much better. Weber said while the early season might be rough, she is expecting the team to make strides by the middle to latter part of the year. They want to be better, they want to do well, she explained. Doing so will fall on the shoulders of the four returning varsity players Elizabeth Wright, outside hitter; Morgan Shalna, hitter; Zahyrimar Z Otero, setter and Jody Weber, hitter from a year ago. Weber expects contributions from Kerri Frazier, Kayla McMann, Lexie Forrester and Tiffany Tieman, all of whom she expects to earn significant playing time on the varsity squad after competing at the junior varsity level last year. We want to build a tradition here, she said of the volleyball program. To what level, well let the players decide how high they want to set the bar. But we want to raise the level of expectations. 6 Riverland News, Thursday, August 23, 2012 0 0 0 B E 0 8 000CDP7 000C6UX 000CCBZ Plants and/or Trees 857-0461 857-0461 Delivered Installed JOINT PAIN? 000C7DK 2155 W.

You people are the greatest. Dolores and Robert Henderson Dunnellon Agency thankful for support of Stuff Our BusOn behalf of the Annie W Johnson Senior &Family Service Center, I would like to thank you for your generous donation of school supplies. This year, we were able to restock supplies at three area schools Romeo Elementary, Dunnellon Elementary and Citrus Springs Elementary. Your commitment to helping our agency is sincerely appreciated. Each year, the Annie W. Johnson Senior & Family Service Center continues to advance its mission of encouraging and fostering the idea of helping less fortunate families. Through our programs of rent/mortgage/utility assistance and food distribution, we have seen many lives changed for the better. The goal of the Annie W.

With the help from supporters such as you we will continue to see continued improvements. Thanks again for your generous support of our efforts. Larry P Cooper, Executive Director Annie W Johnson Senior & Family Service Center to this campaign and I am so grateful to them. There were also many new friends who we met during this campaign that believed in us and were there to the end. To have people willing to contribute to your campaign both with their support as well as financially and to dedicate their precious time to this cause was truly an honor and a blessing. To all of you who put your lives on hold and were there for us no matter what, words cannot express our love and appreciation for what you have done. I would also like to honor those who were there with us at the beginning of the journey and who are now with God: Capt. Leroy Strawder, Richard Scionti, Tim Surrency, Lanell Knight, Donald Teuton, Daniel Hunt and Greg Dawson, thank you for believing in me. Special thoughts go out to Christine Blackburn and the Blackburn family and Roberta Johnson and the Johnson family, you will always be a special part of our lives and a reminder to me of why I went into law enforcement in the first place. I am a firm believer that God has a plan for us and that things in life happen for a reason. My family and I are at peace with the outcome although I feel that with our team, there was nothing that we couldnt have accomplished together. We have to hold our heads high and be proud of what we achieved, we were fighting the Good Old Boy political machine and we came very close without sacrificing our integrity. I can honestly say that I do not feel that we could have done anything differently, we kept the politics out of the sheriffs office, we kept our campaign focused on the facts, and we ran a clean race, everything else was Gods plan. To the men and women of the Marion County Sheriffs Office, thank you for what you do each and every day to protect and serve this community and may God continue to bless you and your families and keep you safe. I sincerely regret that I will no longer be able to serve alongside you, but you will always be in my mind and in my heart. Once again, thank you to everyone who supported us throughout this journey, God Bless each and every one of you and your families, and God Bless Marion County.Chris Blair was a candidate for Marion County sheriff.

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.

The Dunnellon Elementary School Guidance Office also received boxes of childrens clothing and Box Tops for Education for the schools use from Joann McCullough, Thrift Shop president; Anita Peloquin, secretary; and Elaine Huett, volunteer. Christine Flood, Guidance Counselor, was unavailable but in an earlier telephone conversation indicated the clothing will be distributed through her office. Although the Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop does not normally carry childrens clothing due to limited space at their shop on Cedar Street and West Pennsylvania Avenue, volunteers collect donated items during the year to give schools at the beginning of the term. The Thrift Shop has collected and donated clothing and Box Tops for Education the past several years and according to school officials, there continues to be a need for some of our area children.

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. Whatever happened to the simple things in life? I must say I do not get very much help on this part, especially from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Her idea of keeping it simple is not telling me everything. This past week I think she went a little too far. It was Saturday night and I was preparing for my weekly bath. I had assembled all the necessary equipment: my rubber ducky, my reading glasses and the book I was reading at the time. There is nothing more relaxing to me than a hot bubbly bath with a good book. Eventually, I put my book up and began the ritual of taking a bath. I reached for the bar of soap and it felt a little different then I had remembered from the week before. It felt as though it had been rolled in gravelly dirt. Wanting to know what the problem was, I called to my wife. Whats wrong with the soap? She then came into the bathroom and said, Theres nothing wrong with the soap. But it feels different, I complained. Thats because its oatmeal soap, she explained. Oatmeal soap? What do you mean, oatmeal soap? Its a new soap I found at the Bath and Body store. Its something new. Its good for you, use it. I immediately began to search my mind (I almost got lost in the process) for information concerning oatmeal. I knew, for example, that oatmeal was a food. I like a bowl of hot oatmeal in the morning with sliced bananas. And oatmeal raisin cookies go perfect with a nice hot cup of coffee. However, I could not find any information in my brain collaborating the fact that you can wash with oatmeal. I looked at the bar of oatmeal soap and did not know if I should wash with it or eat it. And, where do you put the sliced bananas? To make matters worse, if that could be possible, I discovered in the bathtub a new bottle of shampoo. It was called Sweet Apple Shampoo. There is nothing like a fruitytooty bubble bath to bring out the manly spirit in a person. I did not know if I should OUT TO PASTOR TOP LEFT: Meagen Siegfried runs through the spray of a pump track and the large puddles it created during Hot Summer Night.

dry off and be put into the refrigerator. This incident only illustrated to me the fact that we live in a very complicated world. Somebody comes up with some simple idea that is a good idea. However, the real money goes to the person who can take that simple idea and complicate it beyond all recognition. There aint nothing simple anymore, my grandfather used to say. And hes been dead for 30 years. What would he say today? For example, take your common everyday telephone. The telephone is no longer a phone but rather a full communication system. You can do everything on your cell phone. I tried to buy a new cell phone recently and found it rather difficult. The salesperson was telling me all of the features of this new cell phone. All I want is to be able to phone my wife when Im away from the house. The salesperson didnt seem to get that fact into his head. For some reason he seemed to think I was so important I needed all of the features of the latest cell phone. Do you know I could not find a cell phone that just was a phone. I remember the days when the telephone was a party system. What parties we used to have. Each person on that party phone line had a certain ring. I still remember ours. It was two rings. Of course, whenever the phone rang everybody on the party line knew who was getting a call and felt complete liberty in joining in. Not just telephones but also everything else has been complicated for us. A watch is no longer a watch, but rather a timepiece that does everything but tell time. I saw one that was also a cell phone. Now, I need a cell phone to find out what time it is and I need a watch to make a phone call. While Im on the subject, try to find a phone booth in the neighborhood. The absence of the neighborhood phone booth may explain the rise in crime. Where in the world does Clark Kent change into his Superman suit? Then there is coffee. On a recent trip, I had to use the services of our friendly airline service, which necessitated spending time in airports, which is as close to purgatory as a person can get without dying. I tried to find a plain cup of coffee. Everywhere I went they had everything but plain coffee. The coffee had been flavored with everything from vanilla to pineapples and a few ingredients I could not pronounce. No wonder so many elderly people go senile. Its the only sane thing to do in such a complicated world. Where, oh where have the simple things in life gone? Only one place remains simple for me. That is the Bible. It is not hard understanding what Jesus meant. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 (KJV). As far as Im concerned, nothing is complicated about trusting Jesus.Email Rev. James L.

more than enough love for another child. So whats the holdup? Well for one thing James is now 7 and starting to be self-sufficient. She likes that. For another thing James is now 7 and Mommy is starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. She likes that, too. Who wants to start all over again at this point? Well, we all hope that she does, because were more than ready. I honestly feel like I need one more grandchild. I was so very lucky that I never had the empty nest syndrome. By the time my last daughter left home, my first daughter was married and starting her family. So I transitioned straight from Mom to Grandma with hardly any delay at all. In fact, my 40th birthday was a joy because I knew I was going to be a grandma. Nothing makes you feel needed like those kids and grandkids. Some of my friends are now going through that. Their kids are going off to college or getting married and moving away or some are joining the armed forces. Its lonely when only adults are left. Oh we all say, gosh, I cant wait until the children are grown and I can finally have time for myself. Then we live for the moments when the kids come home and the house is noisy again. One of my closest friends just found out shes going to be a grandmother for the first time and Im so happy for her. Shell experience love like shes never known before. I speak from experience. For the past fourteen years Ive been extremely needed, busy and happy. So come on, kids, keep me happy. Bring me another grandchild, or two or three. How about just keep them coming? Trust me, I can handle it. Permission Form allows parents to email their childs teachers with any questions or concerns. Both tools are available to open communications and assist our children to have a successful school year. School Buses are back on the road. We urge all drivers to please use great caution with the changing traffic patterns as buses pick-up and drop-off students. We urge all students to pay attention to their surroundings at the bus stop and at all times follow the bus drivers directions and instructions. Safety is crucial part of a successful school year for our entire community. We would like to suggest bus stop and school bus riding as a Be There topic of conversation and how everyone can benefit by being vigilant and respectful of school bus riding. Again, welcome to the new 2012-13 Dunnellon Middle School year that will be filled with learning, success and fun.

Local teen models for book fair magazine People usually hide from the camera when their picture is taken, but for Ruthie Johnson it is the complete opposite. The 13-year-old Dunnellon Middle School eighth-grader is a dancer and model. After dancing for 10 years for Victoria School of Dance, learning forms such as ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, lyrical, and competitive dance competitions with the VSD Rainbow Dance Troupes competitive team, Johnson decided she wanted to broaden her horizon even more. Victoria School of Dance referenced her to get into modeling about three years ago and Johnson quickly accepted it would broaden her horizon, and has been modeling ever since. I never thought it would be such a good tribute in my life, Johnson said. It has given me so many opportunities the past couple of years that I would have never had the chance to do. There, Johnson learned individual and group runway, television comFred Ward is keeping his hat in the political ring. The two-term mayor of Dunnellon filed his paperwork Monday to seek a third term to lead the City Council. The incumbent has served for mayor the past five years, having run for Seat 1. As of Tuesday, Ward was the lone candidate to file all of his paperwork, said Mandy Roberts, assistant city clerk. Dee Brown, the Marion County supervisor of elections, must verify Wards signatures as well as those of any other potential candidates. Ward said he chose to run again because hed like to see many of the policies he and his counterparts have to put into place come to fruition. He said several of them are just now starting to pay off. As one who started out on this journey, you would like to finish with the sun to your back; Id still like to be involved, he said. As far as his proudest moment, Ward said it would be tough to choose just one. I dont know if you could boil it down to a single moment, he explained. I ran on the platform Id like to see the city run more like a business and I think thats happened. Before, it didnt necessarily run like a business, but now we have consistency and procedures. Thats helped our productivity immensely. Weve gotten a lot of productivity out of folks, because weve allowed them to be productive. Thats Fred Ward: Mayor filed to run for re-election. Internet service shuts down Main Street Broadband, an Atlanta, Ga.based company, which began offering 4G wireless broadband service in Dunnellon and the outlying areas in April, shut its services down Aug. 1. Main Street said the shutdown was the result of its inability to obtain re-financing of its loans. Company officials widely touted its services to those seeking to upgrade their Internet services and had hoped to compete against Greenlight Dunnellon Communications. When it moved into the area, Mike Mies, the cofounder and CEO of the company, said at the time Dunnellon is a key market. We are pleased to be able to provide affordable high-speed Internet access to the residents and businesses in and around Dunnellon. We know that Dunnellon is a market with customers looking for a new internet option. Als TV Shop, which was also an authorized dealer in Dunnellon, said officials with Main Street never even told them ahead of time they were folding up shop. The infrastructure, such as the towers, remains in place though, including a tower along County Road 39 and near the U.S. 41 and State Road intersection. City Manager Lisa Algiere said officials had heard about Main Street going out of business, but that the city has no interest in purchasing the new defunct companys infrastructure. They provided wireless service, which is not very reliable and would not fit into our infrastructure, she explained.

Busing delays lone problem on first day back to school Monday was a day of firsts for many. For some, it meant the beginning of their 13-year trek through the Marion County Public School system. For some, it marked the first day in middle or high school. For some, it marked the first day of their careers in education. For Delbert Smallridge and Ken McAteer, it was their first day to welcome students to campus in their roles as principals. The longtime educators greeted students making their way onto campus at either Dunnellon Middle or Dunnellon High schools, where they are, respectively, leading the charge this year after earning promotions this summer. Delbert spent a portion of his morning chatting with students as they waited for their schedules, and checking in on several new teachers who awaited the arrival of their students. We all had a wonderful first day at DMS, Smallridge explained. It was a relatively uneventful day. I really enjoyed seeing the lifeblood of the school start to flow ... a day that I have waited on for some time now. McAteer, who took over for former Principal Michelle Lewis, this past July, said there were no major issues at the school. The lone problem was delays in busing, which is typical the first few days of a new school year. The first day was very successful, he said. It was a great day. Its a great community. Dunnellon High has some great kids.

(TSC) held its nationwide events for its Pet Appreciation Week (P.A.W.). on Saturday, the TSC of Dunnellon chose to support its canine friends by presenting the second Annual Dog Days of Dunnellon. The event attracted 200 animal lovers despite the threat of storms. Nearly 50 canine participants entered the contests for Ugliest, Cutest, Smallest, Biggest, Best Trick and Best Singing Dog. Joan Eubank of TSC, overseeing the event that featured eight dog rescues and one cat rescue organization, was delighted by the turnout. The dog contests were judged by 4-H, albeit a newly-founded community horse club for young people. This is a good kickoff to our second club year, Club President Emily Dampman, 18, said. Everyone I know with horses has dogs as well I have four. We came to help as volunteers and learned this morning we are the event beneficiaries. Dampman and her club members were also judges for the contests. Fred and Dorothy Bischof brought their Pitbull/Labrador mix, Maggie, who won Biggest Dog. They adopted Maggie from Citrus County Animal Services (CCAS) and are very proud of their gentle giant and know that their nine grandchildren will be too. Diminutive Jackapoo Tootsies owner, Kelly Gozdecki, was also proud of her poochs win as Smallest Dog. Lori Fausetts top ranking, champion Australian Shepherd Wish, won Best Singing Dog and Best Trick. Rocky, owned by Sarah and Ronnie Glass, was similarly awarded for being the Ugliest Dog at the show. All the winners received a trophy, framed certificate and $25 TSC gift card. Fundraising was assisted by CCAS represented by their volunteer support group: Friends of Citrus County Animal Services (FOCCAS), which offered dog washing and toe nail trims; Dr. Paul Mack, DVM, and Dunnellon Animal Hospital provided low cost vaccinations and microchips; and Levy Animal Friends (LeAF), offered breakfast, lunch and refreshments. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, August 23, 2012 000CDB3 Trinity Trinity Trinity Villas Villas Villas Senior Citizen Complex Taking applications for studio & 1 bedroom apartments.

not a moment, thats a process. You dont reach that overnight you have to steward that. Morale is a big deal to me if morale is good then employees are happy. The Dunnellon City Council on Monday will then approve the qualifying list of candidates for the November General Election. Councilwoman Penny Fleeger and Councilman Erik Collop had both filed their form Appointment of Campaign Treasurer and Designation of Campaign Depository for Candidates. In filing this form, both are allowed to open campaign accounts. The qualifying period ends at noon Aug. 24. Petitions as well as the proper financial disclosure and campaign forms must be submitted to City Clerk Dawn Bowne no later than noon Friday. The cost for qualifying will be $45, plus 1 percent of councils annual salary, which equals $18, for a total of $63. The three seats up for grabs include Mayor Ward, who holds Seat No. 1 and the title of mayor, and Penny Fleeger, who holds seat No. 5. The winner will secure a four-year on the Dunnellon City Council after the council approved extended terms in 2010. The other open spot includes Seat No. 4, now held by Collop who was selected to fill-in for the late Frederick C. Stark. Whoever wins this seat will serve until 2014 when the term was scheduled to officially end. If Ward qualifies and no one files to run against him, he would be sworn-in at the first meeting after the November General Election, which is scheduled for Nov. 6. The same holds true if Fleeger and Collop file their remaining paperwork and they are unopposed. mercials, monologues, participated in showcases and agent interviews.

Doing scene studies with Nick Loren, who worked very closely with John Travolta as seen in the movie From Paris with Love and Wild Hogs. Johnson was also an extra in the movie Dolphin Tales and Big Mike. I was so excited when the Central Florida Talents notified Mrs. Sheila Poeler about the fall edition 2012 scholastics magazine photo shoot, she said, noting Mrs. Poeler is the owner of Ocala models. The photo shoot was March 29 at Tuskawilla Middle School in Oviedo. Participating in several classes for modeling, Johnson decided to drop out of the classes so she can focus on her dancing. In the picture featured in the booklet, Johnson and another model, Christian MacConnell from Indialantic, are putting up stars, which have names of books for accelerated reading on the wall. The advertisting promotes students around Marion County to read more and do the accelerated reading program. Schools around Marion County will be viewing the picture Johnson is featured in this upcoming school year. I am looking forward to furthering my career as a dancer and model, Johnson said.

She said all children made it home safely the first day. She added one change was made this year and that was to have the children eat in the cafeteria instead of the classrooms. The teachers loved it, she explained. Children are not usually the neatest eaters and many times there were lots of spills and tears in the classrooms. We had none of those issues this year. Ashman said one concern she had the first day of school was parents arriving too early to pick up their children. We have nowhere for them to park, she said. It does cause a major traffic problem on the street out front. We will work on that in the first two weeks. Districtwide, there were no major issues reported, said Kevin Christian, public relations and communications officer. Some buses were delayed because of normal first-day procedures including longer-thananticipated pick-up times at new bus stops and drivers placing colored armbands on students for proper identification, Christian said. Transportation issues are a common and expected occurrence during the first two weeks of class. These issues are normally resolved within the first few days of class, he wrote in a news release. All told Monday, 39,267 students showed up for their first day. This number is 214 students fewer than last years first-day count and about 6 percent under the projected peak count of 41,847, Christian said. As usual, the daily attendance figure will climb over the next two months for the official state count in October, he explained.

Close to 15 years ago I looked around the room one Christmas morning and announced that our family was getting boring. I was met with looks of shock and disbelief. What I meant to say, or should have said, was our family is getting boring because there are no kids to liven it up. We were all grown-ups and holidays such as Christmas didnt have that spark and excitement that they do when children are around. After adults unwrap their gifts, what else is there to do? One year, we ended up at the movies. Excitement was definitely lacking that year. Then my daughter happily obliged my wishes and gave me a granddaughter. Now Im afraid were almost getting to that point again. Oh, of course, we still have my grandson, James, who is more than enough fun, excitement and laughter rolled into one. But he is rapidly growing and soon wont be our baby anymore. Plus, its hard sharing him between all the grown-ups who want him. We also have my two little nieces, who I love to pieces, but they live in Iowa now and we only see them once a year, if that. In fact my oldest niece, Victoria, has her 10th birthday tomorrow and, unfortunately, we wont be together to celebrate it with her. All we can do is send gifts and Skype, so we can watch as she opens them. Shes also my goddaughter and I remember what an honor it was the day they asked me. We take godparenting very seriously in our Italian culture. We call each other twin, because she looks exactly like I did when I was her age. Except I was a permanent size 6X, and she fortunately is a normal sized girl. So if they were here in Florida enjoying all the holidays with us I may not feel this way, but theyre not and I do. My first grandbaby, Dominique, will soon be 14, which does not seem possible. She doesnt need us around the way she used to. She would rather hang out with her friends than celebrate with us and the absence is very much noticed. I know 100 percent without a shadow of a doubt that I cannot have another baby. Im equally sure that my youngest daughter, Alicia, is done too. Therefore, it now falls on my daughter, Mandy, to be the chosen one. We keep trying to convince her that we need one more. We will be here to hold it, take care of it and babysit. All she has to do is get pregnant, carry the child for nine months and then birth it. Thats a great deal, wouldnt you say? Shes such a good mom, too. Her son is so in love with her. She has River views City needs to itemize its water billsThe letter from Mr. Russo in the Aug. 16 edition of the Riverland News was right on. I waited for six months for the city of Dunnellon to send me a schedule of the water rates. Like Mr. Russo, I would like to know how they arrived at the amount on the bill. This is the only bill that we receive that is not itemized. As a matter of fact, this is the only utility bill that I have ever received that was not itemized. I had to go to the Greenlight offices to get a rate schedule and since it included the 25 percent surcharge, it isnt an accurate rate schedule. When Rainbow Springs owned the utility, they sent the bill out on a post card and managed to itemize the charges on half of the post card. I would really appreciate an itemized bill that includes the meter charge, the base sewer charge, the water use charge, the sewer use charge and the 25 percent surcharge listed as separate charges and an accurate rate schedule.Glenda Hinz Rainbow SpringsDo residents really want four more years of the same?Can Dunnellon, Rainbow Springs, Rio Vista and Juliette Falls stand another four years of incompetent city management? The residents of the city can vote and run for city council while residents of the other communities can only be victimized by the mismanagement and taxation without representation of the city government. Like it or not, the city is in hock to the tune of at least $22 million, more than enough for some cities around the country to declare bankruptcy; $7.5 million of this debt is due to the Greenlight fiasco where the citys share of state excise taxes is encumbered for collateral. The rest is bonding for water/sewer projects. Meanwhile, the citys ad valorem tax rate remains substantially higher than other cities throughout the region and likewise for the water/sewer utility rates. Is it any wonder the residents of Rainbow Springs are angry enough to file a lawsuit against the city? Only you, the residents of the city of Dunnellon, can put a stop to this foolishness.

In the beginning, when my family and I made the decision that I would run for sheriff, we had no idea what lied ahead and what was in store for us. The political arena was not an area which we were familiar with at all. We immediately decided to use the colors of red, white and blue as our campaign colors because they represented unity, bravery and the American spirit. From that day, we were proud of the decision we made especially when we watched the way that these colors united so many people in this community. My family and I are so honored to have been a part of this journey and we have absolutely no regrets. If not for this campaign, there are countless wonderful and amazing people that we may never have met as our paths might not have ever crossed. But God brought these wonderful people into our lives and we now have new friendships that will last forever and for this, we are blessed. The decision to run for office is not just about being a law enforcement officer and working your way through the ranks, it is about what molds you into who you are, what you stand for and the people that your surround yourself with. I have been blessed in my life in so many ways and so blessed to have had your support. There is no way that a person could go on this journey alone. A person must have the support of great people and I had that since the start of the campaign almost 1 1/2 years ago. Sangi, Jason, Alesa and I began this journey together as a family but our family has now grown tremendously. I had the support of people that I have known and respected for many years such as Fred Latorre, Tommy Bibb, Evon Colchiski, Don Maines and Don Moreland, and I can never repay them or their families for the sacrifices that they made. All that I can say is thank you for believing in me and for all that they did for both myself and for this community. There were also many friends that I had not seen in many years who stepped up and dedicated themselves Fomers sheriffs candidate thanks voters for support The wet weather has seen an outbreak of mosquitoes in and around our homes, and gardens. Spaying helps to kill and deter the insects from too much biting, but the deet in the sprays is not something everyone wants to spray every day and top up all day. Encouraging natural predators will help keep some of the population down and at the same time keep the wildlife populations up. Having a bat box in your garden can help to encourage these natural predators to live, and breed in our gardens, and areas. A bat box works on the same principle as a bird box, except that bats prefer a wedgeshaped roost and enter through a gap underneath rather than a hole at the front. Using cheap, untreated wood, this box will give bats the perfect place to shelter and roost in your garden. If youre lucky, they may even give birth and raise their young there, so make sure you site it in a sheltered spot. Materials: Using a pencil, divide and cut the plank into the following sized pieces: 40 centimeters by 15 centimeters (back); 23 centimeters by 20 centimeters (roof); and 23 centimeters by 15 centimeters (front). Finally cut a piece 20 centimeters by 34 centimeters and cut it diagonally to create two triangles for the sides of the bat box. Place the backboard on a flat surface and cut ridges into it, 2 millimeters deep every 0.5 centimeter, to make a ladder for the bats to climb up. Take one of the side triangles and measure 12.5 centimeters from the acute angle along the longest length. Draw a horizontal line across the triangle at this point and cut off the smallest part. Repeat with the other side. Nail the two side panels to the front panel of the bat box. Sit the roof on top and push up the backboard to check for a tight fit. Nail on the backboard. Nail on the roof and an eyelet for hanging and hang above ground on a tree, post or house wall. Hummingbirds and blue birds are also natural predators so keep your garden wildlife friendly and pest free. Planting lemon grass or catnip that can be then cut and rubbed on you, as a natural deterrent is useful. One idea was to put a dryer sheet in the waistband of your clothes, and the smell will prevent the insects biting. The summer is coming to an end, so soon it will be right to begin getting broccoli, cauliflowers and brassica seeds planted for fall and winter planting. Lettuce and other vegetables will enjoy the cooler temps and crops can be grown in time before the frost. Contact Tracy Jenner, the Riverland Gardener, at tracy jenner1@gmail.com.

DHS volleyball aims to build tradition under Webers tenure Practices have been few and far between, techniques are off, but conditioning is coming along well and team chemistry is developing thus far for the 2012 Dunnellon High School volleyball team. However, with the Lady Tigers season-opening match four days away Monday at Ocala Vanguard even first-year coach Terry Weber knows theres plenty of work to be done. The official varsity roster wasnt completed until after Tuesdays practice, giving those on the top-tier squad just three days of practice time together.

With their jamboree game scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday at home against Lecanto High School, the team has been preparing hard. Many changes have been made to the football program at Dunnellon. Former Dunnellon High standout Roger Sibbald, a member of the back-to-back state championship teams in the late 1970s, is a new addition to the coaching staff. Another former player, Tommy Sutton, the offensive line coach for the past several years, is now the teams offensive coordinator. There are about 20 new players who have been added to the varsity team. Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley expects big things from sophomore Kane Parks and junior Dustin Molina, who will play at the varsity level this fall. They will play big roles now that they have made the varsity level, said Beasley, whose team finished 6-4 a year ago and missed the playoffs. Parks believes the team can go far this season. We have a really good team and Im excited to get Photos by JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon coach Frank Beasley watches his teams offensive unit run through a play Monday afternoon during practice.

this year started, he said. Returning starters for the varsity team include; seniors Jordan Boley, Conner Wentz, Alex Stetz, Andre Jackson and Jvonn Swoll. Swoll and Parks are both fighting for time at for the tailback position while Michael Roberson and Shane Williams are scrapping it out for a line backer position. Beasley said the team has an outstanding offensive and defensive line that should be their biggest strength. Beasley said depth will be key this season. I believe the team is a lot more mature this year, they understand what we are looking from them, he said. With the goal set for the year of being district champions, Dunnellon will not go down without a fight. I believe it will be a really good year with all the senior leadership and will we have this year, he said. Bruce Wentz when he called two weeks ago offering her the position after former coach Karen Noffsinger abruptly resigned. Turning to Weber to lead Dunnellon was a no-brainer, Wentz said. Having spent the past two seasons as an assistant, the 1986 Dunnellon High graduate was familiar with the program and the players. Both her daughters, Casey and Jody, played for the Lady Tigers a year ago. Her youngest daughter, Jody, is expected to a key contributor for the team this year. Her enthusiasm, her organizational skills, her knowledge of the program and kids, they were all positives, Wentz said. The lone setback, Weber said, was the lack of opportunities for the players to attend camps together throughout the summer months. Still, she said, the team returns four starters from a squad that posted one victory a year ago. Theyre bonding well, Weber said. Theres a lack of drama. They seem to be meshing well as a group. They understand the team concept much better. Weber said while the early season might be rough, she is expecting the team to make strides by the middle to latter part of the year. They want to be better, they want to do well, she explained. Doing so will fall on the shoulders of the four returning varsity players Elizabeth Wright, outside hitter; Morgan Shalna, hitter; Zahyrimar Z Otero, setter and Jody Weber, hitter from a year ago. Weber expects contributions from Kerri Frazier, Kayla McMann, Lexie Forrester and Tiffany Tieman, all of whom she expects to earn significant playing time on the varsity squad after competing at the junior varsity level last year. We want to build a tradition here, she said of the volleyball program. To what level, well let the players decide how high they want to set the bar. But we want to raise the level of expectations. 6 Riverland News, Thursday, August 23, 2012 000BE08 000CDP7 000C6UX 000CCBZ Plants and/or Trees 857-0461 857-0461 Delivered Installed JOINT PAIN? 000C7DK 2155 W.

I can honestly say that I do not feel that we could have done anything differently, we kept the politics out of the sheriffs office, we kept our campaign focused on the facts, and we ran a clean race, everything else was Gods plan. To the men and women of the Marion County Sheriffs Office, thank you for what you do each and every day to protect and serve this community and may God continue to bless you and your families and keep you safe.

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. Thrifty donation Photos by Joann McCulloughPat Chaptman, center, Guidance Counselor for Romeo Elementary School, accepts clothing donations from Carol Garceau, left, Thrift Shop volunteer, and Carmen Fisher, Thrift Shop vice president. Schools receive clothing from Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop Pat Chaptman, Romeo Elementary Schools Guidance Counselor, was presented Friday, Aug. 10, with boxes of some new and gently used childrens clothing collected by the Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop the past few months. Carmen Fisher, Thrift Shop vice president, and Carol Garceau, volunteer, assisted loading the clothing for Chaptman. Box Tops for Education collected by volunteers were donated to the school along with the clothing. The Dunnellon Elementary School Guidance Office also received boxes of childrens clothing and Box Tops for Education for the schools use from Joann McCullough, Thrift Shop president; Anita Peloquin, secretary; and Elaine Huett, volunteer. Christine Flood, Guidance Counselor, was unavailable but in an earlier telephone conversation indicated the clothing will be distributed through her office. Although the Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop does not normally carry childrens clothing due to limited space at their shop on Cedar Street and West Pennsylvania Avenue, volunteers collect donated items during the year to give schools at the beginning of the term. The Thrift Shop has collected and donated clothing and Box Tops for Education the past several years and according to school officials, there continues to be a need for some of our area children.

I must say I do not get very much help on this part, especially from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Her idea of keeping it simple is not telling me everything. This past week I think she went a little too far. It was Saturday night and I was preparing for my weekly bath. I had assembled all the necessary equipment: my rubber ducky, my reading glasses and the book I was reading at the time. There is nothing more relaxing to me than a hot bubbly bath with a good book. Eventually, I put my book up and began the ritual of taking a bath. I reached for the bar of soap and it felt a little different then I had remembered from the week before. It felt as though it had been rolled in gravelly dirt. Wanting to know what the problem was, I called to my wife. Whats wrong with the soap? She then came into the bathroom and said, Theres nothing wrong with the soap. But it feels different, I complained. Thats because its oatmeal soap, she explained. Oatmeal soap? What do you mean, oatmeal soap? Its a new soap I found at the Bath and Body store. Its something new. Its good for you, use it. I immediately began to search my mind (I almost got lost in the process) for information concerning oatmeal. I knew, for example, that oatmeal was a food. I like a bowl of hot oatmeal in the morning with sliced bananas. And oatmeal raisin cookies go perfect with a nice hot cup of coffee. However, I could not find any information in my brain collaborating the fact that you can wash with oatmeal. I looked at the bar of oatmeal soap and did not know if I should wash with it or eat it. And, where do you put the sliced bananas? To make matters worse, if that could be possible, I discovered in the bathtub a new bottle of shampoo. It was called Sweet Apple Shampoo. There is nothing like a fruitytooty bubble bath to bring out the manly spirit in a person. I did not know if I shouldOUT TO PASTOR TOP LEFT: Meagen Siegfried runs through the spray of a pump track and the large puddles it created during Hot Summer Night.

dry off and be put into the refrigerator. This incident only illustrated to me the fact that we live in a very complicated world. Somebody comes up with some simple idea that is a good idea. However, the real money goes to the person who can take that simple idea and complicate it beyond all recognition. There aint nothing simple anymore, my grandfather used to say. And hes been dead for 30 years. What would he say today? For example, take your common everyday telephone. The telephone is no longer a phone but rather a full communication system. You can do everything on your cell phone. I tried to buy a new cell phone recently and found it rather difficult. The salesperson was telling me all of the features of this new cell phone. All I want is to be able to phone my wife when Im away from the house. The salesperson didnt seem to get that fact into his head. For some reason he seemed to think I was so important I needed all of the features of the latest cell phone. Do you know I could not find a cell phone that just was a phone. I remember the days when the telephone was a party system. What parties we used to have. Each person on that party phone line had a certain ring. I still remember ours. It was two rings. Of course, whenever the phone rang everybody on the party line knew who was getting a call and felt complete liberty in joining in. Not just telephones but also everything else has been complicated for us. A watch is no longer a watch, but rather a timepiece that does everything but tell time. I saw one that was also a cell phone. Now, I need a cell phone to find out what time it is and I need a watch to make a phone call. While Im on the subject, try to find a phone booth in the neighborhood. The absence of the neighborhood phone booth may explain the rise in crime. Where in the world does Clark Kent change into his Superman suit? Then there is coffee. On a recent trip, I had to use the services of our friendly airline service, which necessitated spending time in airports, which is as close to purgatory as a person can get without dying. I tried to find a plain cup of coffee. Everywhere I went they had everything but plain coffee. The coffee had been flavored with everything from vanilla to pineapples and a few ingredients I could not pronounce. No wonder so many elderly people go senile. Its the only sane thing to do in such a complicated world. Where, oh where have the simple things in life gone? Only one place remains simple for me. That is the Bible. It is not hard understanding what Jesus meant. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 (KJV). As far as Im concerned, nothing is complicated about trusting Jesus.Email Rev. James L.

more than enough love for another child. So whats the holdup? Well for one thing James is now 7 and starting to be self-sufficient. She likes that. For another thing James is now 7 and Mommy is starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. She likes that, too. Who wants to start all over again at this point? Well, we all hope that she does, because were more than ready. I honestly feel like I need one more grandchild. I was so very lucky that I never had the empty nest syndrome. By the time my last daughter left home, my first daughter was married and starting her family. So I transitioned straight from Mom to Grandma with hardly any delay at all. In fact, my 40th birthday was a joy because I knew I was going to be a grandma. Nothing makes you feel needed like those kids and grandkids. Some of my friends are now going through that. Their kids are going off to college or getting married and moving away or some are joining the armed forces. Its lonely when only adults are left. Oh we all say, gosh, I cant wait until the children are grown and I can finally have time for myself. Then we live for the moments when the kids come home and the house is noisy again. One of my closest friends just found out shes going to be a grandmother for the first time and Im so happy for her. Shell experience love like shes never known before. I speak from experience. For the past fourteen years Ive been extremely needed, busy and happy. So come on, kids, keep me happy. Bring me another grandchild, or two or three. How about just keep them coming? Trust me, I can handle it. Permission Form allows parents to email their childs teachers with any questions or concerns. Both tools are available to open communications and assist our children to have a successful school year. School Buses are back on the road. We urge all drivers to please use great caution with the changing traffic patterns as buses pick-up and drop-off students. We urge all students to pay attention to their surroundings at the bus stop and at all times follow the bus drivers directions and instructions. Safety is crucial part of a successful school year for our entire community. We would like to suggest bus stop and school bus riding as a Be There topic of conversation and how everyone can benefit by being vigilant and respectful of school bus riding. Again, welcome to the new 2012-13 Dunnellon Middle School year that will be filled with learning, success and fun.
