City aims for federal grant again After missing out on qualifying for a $600,000 Community Development Block Grant by 1/2 point a year ago, the Dunnellon City Council set the wheels in motion Monday night to pursue the grant again this year. A year ago, city officials were under a tight deadline to apply for the grant. Thats not the case this year as all applications are due Oct. 1, said Fred Fox of Fred Fox Enterprises, which is assisting the city in filling the application. Fox said the city could choose to apply for a number of projects; however, he urged them to go with this project again because its the lone project the city has that is shovel ready. Thats going to get you 100 points right away, he explained to the Council. The grants are based on a point system, the more points you can automatically secure, the better off you are in the process, he added. The city, if it qualifies for the grant, must match the federal funding dollar for dollar. If the city does acquire the grant funding, officials plan on using the money to install a 12-inch water line from the DunnellonMarion County Airport along County Road 484 to the Dunnellon Heights area. The water line will also run Officials unveil initial budget Public hearing set for Sept. 10 The Dunnellon City Council got its first glimpse of the 2012-13 Fiscal Year budget, which not only shows a drop in revenues, but a cut in the millage rate. The budgets for both of the citys enterprise funds water and sewer and Greenlight Dunnellon Communications were not complete and will be introduced at a date yet to be announced by city officials. This years general fund budget is tentatively set at $3,124,218, a 4.1 percent drop compared to last years budget. The FY Budget for 2011-12 was $3,257,358. In July, the City Council set millage rate for Fiscal Year 2012-13 at 6.8013, a 1/2 point lower had it adopted the roll back rate. The roll back rate meant the City Council could have set the millage rate at a level to produce the same amount of revenue. Currently, the citys millage rate is 7.1408. Setting it at the current level means city officials cannot raise it; however, they can opt lower it if they choose to. Overall, city officials said its a little more than a 6 percent drop compared to a year ago. The Belleview City Council set its millage rate at 3.9912 and is likely to collect $200,000 less in revenue this year. The Ocala City Council voted unanimously to set its tentative millage rate at the rolled-back rate of 6.1502 per $1,000 of taxable value, a 3.7 percent increase over the current millage rate. Im a little disappointed this hasnt gotten more media coverage from the press, Mayor Fred Ward JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsSwampys waitress Jennie Martin, center writes down orders for Sam McKee, left, and Pastor Terry McKee at Swampys Restaurant, which recently opened next to the Rainbow River. ELECTION 2012 DUNNELLON CITY COUNCIL Riverland NewsMayor Fred Ward, left, who is seeking a third term, will face challenger Nathanael Nathan C. Whitt, second from left, for Seat 1 in the Nov. 6 General Election. The winner will secure a four-year term on the Dunnellon City Council. Councilwoman Penny Fleeger, second from right, will begin her second term in November after running unopposed. Councilman Erik Collop, right, will also begin his term in November. His term expires in 2014. Businessman files, will challenge Ward for mayoral seat in November election Two races for the Dunnellon City Council are over before they even began. However, city residents will get the opportunity to decide one race in November on the General Election ballot. Councilwoman Penny Fleeger, Seat 5, and Councilman Erik Collop, Seat 4, are unopposed, meaning they automatically retain their seats. For more information, see related story on Page 1. Mayor Fred Ward, who filed Aug. 20 for his third team on Seat 1, the mayors position, does have a challenger. Local businessman Nathanael Nathan C. Whitt filed his paperwork Friday, moments before the noon deadline, giving the two-term mayor a challenger for the seat. Why not? Whitt said about his foray into politics. Whitt said hes grown frustrated with the division created by past actions of the City Council, namely the purchase of the Rainbow Springs Utility system and the 25 percent surcharge which have lead to Rainbow Springs residents to boycott local businesses. I dont feel like were moving in the right direction, said the father of two girls, 7 and 5, both of whom attend Dunnellon Elementary School. Diplomacy is in my blood. Whitt said his top priority would be to mend fences with not just only Rainbow Springs residents, but the businesses effected by the boycott and bring all parties to the table to find a solution. I want to foster those relationships, Whitt, a long-time musician, said. Whitt, who has operated and owned Rainbow River Canoe and Kayak for the past 10 years, said he also knows what could be a vital economic engine for the city, its taxpayers, both residential and business the rivers. Honestly, what else is there? he asked. Whitt said he sees visitors coming from across the United States as well as large numbers of visitors from Europe who visit Dunnellon for the opportunity to take in the Rainbow River and visit the state park. People come here for the rivers, he said. Thats what I hear most of the time. We need to use that to our advantage, we Incumbents unopposed in respective bids for officePenny Fleeger has a familiarity with city business since first taking office in 2008.

Both will learn more about each other in the coming years as each retained their seats on the Dunnellon City Council after the qualifying process came to a close Friday and no opponent on the ballot. Both will be sworn-in at the first City Council meeting in November after the election. Fleeger will serve until 2016 while Collop will serve until 2014.

The newest eatery opened July 16 for friends and family to come out and test the restaurant out, but opened to the general public July 17. With about 25 employees who work there, Swampys is still accepting applications at this time. Business is big on Saturdays and Sundays with the exiting kayakers and tubers, Swampys workers exclaim from when they start to when they get off its a lot of work with that many customers. The view of the Rainbow River provides a relaxing scene in which one can sit down and enjoy a beer or hamburger outside under the patio or those who chose can sit inside in the cool air conditioning. The menu offers a variety to the normal such as hamburgers, chicken, and sub sandwiches just to name. I love their hamburger, Houston Koch said. Its so big that its worth the price!

American Legion Post Post 58 of Dunnellon is looking for younger, new members to join the American Legion. The 2013 membership drive year has begun. Currently, the Post Membership consists of veterans from World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam, Lebanon and Grenada, Panama, and the First Gulf War. As those of us from World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam grow ever older, we the current members of the American Legion are fervently reaching out to all veterans of The Gulf War and the War on Terrorism from its beginning Dec. 20, 1990, to the present time. These new veterans are all eligible to join the American Legion. The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nations largest veterans organization committed and dedicated to mentoring and sponsorship of youth programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting a strong national security, and continued devotion and assistance to our fellow service members and veterans. This devotion and continued service to our service members and veterans includes activities such as: Troop Support Services, Legion Riders, college scholarships to high school students, Veterans Administration services, job assistance programs, crime resistance, Missing Childrens Programs, drug abuse programs, teenage suicide prevention programs, Special Olympics, the National Emergency Fund, Flag Honor Guard, Sons of the American Legion, Childrens Miracle Network affiliation, Boy Scouts, Boys State and Nation, blood donor program, family support network and Heroes to Hometowns, to name a few. The most beneficial program for veterans is the American Legions continued assistance program to veterans concerning Veterans Administration issues. The local Post service officer is highly trained in answering and helping the new veteran member resolve Veterans Administration Benefit issues. Facing the Veterans Administration alone can be taxing. But with the help of the worlds largest veterans organization, many veterans have realized benefits they did not know they were eligible for. It is the new group of veterans that can benefit greatly from the American Legion, as they are just returning home and faced with reentering civilian society. Some may need Veteran Benefits immediately. Others may suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder, which does not appear until they have been state side for a period of time. The local American Legion Post can help you identify and fill those needs. Current Post members are working diligently recruiting new members, but unless the new veteran is aware of the services offered to the veteran, they may not know where to look or go for assistance. If you are a new veteran of the Gulf War, or the War on Terrorism, just home from a tour of duty, recently separated from your military unit, feel assured you can turn to your local American Legion Post for help, camaraderie, and fellowship. For more information regarding services, upcoming activities and membership, call your Local American Legion Post 58 at 352-4894453, or Post 58 Membership Chairman Frank Strobl at 352-598-1231.

Fred C. Stark, who ran unopposed in 2010. This will be Fleegers second term on the Council after being elected in 2008. Im very pleased, she said about earning a second term without facing opposition. This has been my first term, ever, in politics. Its been a real learning experience. She said her reasons for seeking a second term include seeing many of the projects the current Council has put into motion, namely the bicycle/pedestrian trail through town and Greenlight Communications. Thats why Im glad Im still on Council, she explained. Im very pleased with the progress that Greenlight has made. I think its the future for us if were going to have jobs for the kids. Thats my main important things, and the ecology. Ive been involved with that for a long, long time. Fleeger is hopeful that Greenlight will be able to attract small businesses here in need of fiber. Im very much in hopes of getting some small business that require fiber, like medial and that sort of thing, she said, noting it would be nice to have something like a Timber Ridge Medical Facility in the city or perhaps a call center. The kids need jobs and its not fun when you have to leave home. They dont want to leave home. There are not many places where you can be at home anymore. They dont exist. Her happiest accomplishment is seeing that police department has added a Marine Unit. All the police have had training for emergencies on the river, she said. The boat is able to get to emergencies, which in the past hasnt been the case. There have been some rough things that have happened on the river. Fleeger said shed like to see controlled, proper growth in the future. So we can retain the feeling we have, she added. In hopes of promoting Dunnellon as an ecotourism destination, shes hopeful her new found role on the Transportation Planning Organization will help the city to secure grant funding to complete the bicycle/pedestrian trail throughout town. I want to get the people through town and hopefully well be able to get some grants to really do it right, she explained. I would love to see a good bed and breakfast in town, several of them really. Id like to see us become a real hub, but I dont want to see us out grow what we have. Collop, who was appointed earlier this month, said he is eager to continue to learn. He noted it didnt take long for him to become interested in seeking the seat for the longterm. Im very excited, he said about serving for the long haul. I think I have a clear vision of what I see about the city and where its headed. Though he said he might sound clich, he pointed out that growth is inevitable. We just have to do it in a responsible manner, Collop explained. We want to keep the river in good shape; we want to keep the natural beauty of town. Collop said finding a way to capture the tourism dollars passing through town is essential, because he sees the numbers of folks who pass through on a frequent basis. I think somehow we got bypassed, he said. Now, we need to find a way to capitalize on being able to capture some of that business that passes through here is essential. We lack lodging for that, but I also realize thats a tough business when so much of your business is seasonal. We just need to work toward improving that and helping the businesses out so that they can grow and prosper. said about the drop in millage rate. Everyone else is either keeping theirs the same or raising rates. To make up for the shortfall without raising taxes this year, city officials plan on dipping into the reserve funds to a tune of $380,263. Most city departments show moderate cuts; however, a year ago, city officials interspersed funds from the Tax Increment Financing District (TIFD), or Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) to make up for budget shortfalls. Thats not so much the case this year as it was in 2011, but salaries are expected to increase from the CRA funds, about 17 percent, or close to $19,000. Officials, in their tentative budget, are projecting to bring in $330,000 in net revenues from the redlight cameras. Its a far cry from the $630,000 the much-maligned devices brought in a year ago, according to city figures. When the City Council formerly adopted the use of the items in 2010, American Traffic Solutions had projected a net income of about $1.6 million, though city officials then tentatively budgets to bring in $800,000. The figure does not include the $200,000 yearly contractual obligations the city has with ATS for its services. The city is set to enter the final year of its contract with ATS for the redlight camera service; officials can either re-opt into a new contract with the Arizona-based company or let the contract expire. The Council has scheduled a public hearing date for tentative budget and millage rate approval for Sept. 10 and the final public hearing Sept. 24, a week before it needs to approved due to the Oct. 1 Fiscal Year deadline. The citys fiscal year runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30.

PENNSYLVANIA AVE.,DUNNELLON, FL 34432-6035 past two proposed development areas, which include Rainbow River Ranches and Blue Run Ranches. Burt Eno, a Rainbow Springs resident, was critical of the citys plans to increase water pressure in the Dunnellon Heights area. I object to the share of the cost of this project, Eno said, noting the $602,000 investment the city must obligate toward the project if its awarded the grant. The lions share of this amount will come from fees paid by Rainbow Springs residents. Eno told the Council if their true objective to increase water pressure in Dunnellon Heights was truly as stated, the city could purchase an acre of land in Dunnellon Heights, drill a well and install a small groundlevel pressure tank and treatment chamber with an emergency generator backup a lot cheaper. If you really wanted to revitalize the city with such a grant you would propose to repair the leaking pipes throughout the city, he said. This would have the ancillary benefit of boosting the pressure throughout the city water system. Eno pointedly told the Council the project is a ruse to supply both proposed subdivisions with the necessary water supply each one will need. This is not the intent of the CDBG Neighborhood Revitalization program, he said. In other action, the Council: Heard a presentation by Kimley-Horn & Associates for Water & Wastewater Utility Master Plan. For more about this story, see the Sept. 6 edition of the Riverland News Approved an agreement with Kimley-Horn & Associates for engineering for the East Pennsylvania Avenue Streetscape project, which coincides with the bicycle/ pedestrian plan. Approved a rezoning request for Dr. Neil Lumapas and Viviene Lumapas for three parcels of property they are planning to purchase on East Pennsylvania Avenue to construct a 9,000square-foot medical office. Had an administrative public hearing regarding the voluntary annexation of Boger Farms, LLC. The Quasi Judicial hearing amending the Comprehensive Plan was rescheduled for Sept. 24, because the citys Planning Board has not been able to review it. The Quasi Judicial session remains in effect until the City Council reconvenes about the topic Sept. 24. For more about this story, see the Sept. 6 edition of the Riverland News GRANT continued from page 1 BUDGET continued from page 1 INCUMBENTS continued from page 1 need to bring those people here; we need to have them here. Whitt understands most people might look at it his campaign as an opportunity to increase his business, but thats certainly not the case he said. I know Ive got sit on the fence when it comes to those issues, he explained. But Ive also got to decide whats best for the residents and businesses. Thats what Im going to do. Whitt said he believes there can be a balance between embracing the river for the tourism it draws to the area and protecting the beauty of the natural resource. The tourists are not a problem that others think they are, he explained. Whitt said his major concerns are the citys aging infrastructure, especially the aging water main line running underneath U.S. 41. If that blows, were all in trouble, he said. Fixing it needs to be the top priority. If it blows, theyll be trucking in water here for along time. For now, he said if hes elected, hell work to mend fences with Rainbow Springs residents. We should all be working together to improve the community, he said. Its a win-win for everyone.

River views Proposed bike trail wont help local businessesThe proposed bike trail through Dunnellon will be a benefit to serious bikers, but not the city. Bikers ride through a city, they do not linger and shop. Serious bikers do not shop, eat a heavy meal or linger to browse. So what business will benefit from this biker trail that will disrupt Pennsylvania Avenue? Does anyone think they will go to other areas of Dunnellon to spur the economy? Dunnellon a great place to bike through as quick as possible could be the new town slogan. Ty Miller Dunnellon Do city leaders have a conscience? Editors Note: This is a letter sent to Mayor Fred Ward and City Manager Lisa Algiere. I am a recent widow living on a fixed budget and I am writing on behalf of myself and my neighbors. We are mostly senior citizens, living on a fixed (ever decreasing) budget. Since you purchased the wells at Rainbow Springs, our water rates have increased to an unaffordable amount. My electric is now cheaper than the price of my water and sewerage bill. I have decreased the amount of lawn watering from twice a week to once a week and that, of course, is only when it doesnt rain. I try not to be wasteful, but still my water bills exceed my budget and now you plan to raise us again. Where is your conscience? We are not a bunch of rich, lazy donothing seniors. We volunteer and support your town, your businesses and your schools. We are retired older citizens who worked hard all our lives and deserve to retire with dignity. Please take a fresh look at your decisions. Elinore McAlonen Dunnellon Whos going to pay for system improvements?Once again, the Dunnellon mayor, Council and city manager dive to the lowest ethical depths. They are currently taking another step to justify their policy of fleecing homeowners outside the city limits through unfair utility bills. The citys leadership, partnered in by their in-house and in-pocket engineering contractor, is presenting its plan for water and sewer projects as part of the updating of the plan covering the expanded water and sewer service area. The plan is falsely conceived Officials need to plot better course C an you believe school is back in already? Where did the summer go? The days and months just seem to fly by, and now the fun is over and the kids are back in the classrooms. I can still remember that awful sick-to-my-stomach feeling when I was a kid on the first day of school. I was always so nervous. What should I wear? How should I do my hair? What would the other kids think about me? My brothers were always so cool, calm and collected. They thought I was crazy for worrying, but I guess thats the difference between boys and girls. When I was growing up, you didnt see the other kids during summer break unless they lived in your neighborhood. We lived way in the back of Rainbow Lakes Estates. Most of my close friends lived on The Granada in town. I was so jealous because they could walk to the river and hang out together all summer. I told my parents thats where I wanted to live. However, we didnt move. There was no Facebook, cell phones or Skype to keep in touch. We had one telephone in our house and it was out in the open where everybody could hear you. So if a friend did call to invite you to a birthday party or something, you said what you needed to say and hung up. Boy, Im really showing my age. I always loved school though. I was such a nerd. I loved learning new things. English and math were my favorites, but eventually one special teacher made me also appreciate current events. What I excelled in the most though was the socializing. I made straight As in almost all my subjects, but then would end up with Ns in conduct. It even kept me off the cheerleading squad for a while, which didnt make sense since you have to be loud to cheer. Of course no matter how much you like school youre never ready for summer to end. Summer means vacations, trips, swimming, beaches, eating whenever you want and sleeping late. We always try to make the break as fun as possible for the grandkids. Every year since my granddaughter, Dominique, was a baby weve done a girls weekend in Daytona. Well, now we allow little James to come, too. Its our chance to lie in the sun all day and then shop all night. Everything the guys in our lives dont enjoy. Its a great time to bond and be silly. Of course, we had our trip to Tennessee this year and many, many weekends full of travel ball. We also celebrated my dads 80th birthday with party and we had a week with my brother and nieces from Iowa. So I would say it was a pretty good summer. Even though the grandkids were sad to see their vacation end, I think they were both a little bit excited to get back. My grandson had tears again the first day.

I think that sums up this years crop of politicians. Nothing changes. Politicians say and do stupid things and we continue to vote them into office. I am disgusted by the whole process. Its depressing, appalling and discouraging and that comment is coming from the optimist deep, deep inside me. By now you know about the Atkins misstep into open mouth insert foot syndrome. Most people were upset about his use of the word legitimate when describing rape. There is no excuse for stupidity and insensitivity when it comes to the horrible violation of a woman. Yes, I was disturbed by his poor choice of words. While most people bashed him for the use of the word legitimate, I on the other hand was amazed by his medical authority. I did not know my body had the power to shut down a pregnancy. Really, who knew I was superwoman? If I had known that, I would not have wasted half my life being a short and dumpy, mousey blonde (occasional redhead). Dang! If I only knew I could tell my body to be a buxom, 6-foot, blue-eyed blonde bombshell. My life would have been a lot different if I had only used my bodys magical powers! I give up! No matter who wins, the middle class still loses. Our government is owned by big business. Did you know that a large group of the Fortune 500 companies donate to both political parties? Either way, they are guaranteed to have a say in the White House. Thats disgraceful. Money and power win and we suffer. We need to do away with lobbyists. The money in politics is maddening. Did you know that thanks to the Supreme Court millions of dollars can now be spent by so called not-for-profit organizations on misleading to down right false advertisement and there is nothing we can do to stop it? The FCC cant fine them. They can get away with this without fear of punishment. All the candidate has to do is say I had nothing to do with it and his reputation is untarnished. All those ads that say Paid for by Americans who love Americans or Americans for Puppies and Apple Pie are not-for profit fronts for lobbyists, big business and big unions. They dont have to tell you who they are or how they are connected to the candidate. They are accountable to Sock it to em! Off Southwest State Road 40 on Southwest 67th Avenue, there is an empty industrial park. It has in place sewers, water, fiber optic, fire hydrants and all county services. It is operational ready for business. Ocala is still awaiting word if one company will accept the offer of $4.9 million of land grants, tax exemptions and other financial aid from the city to build there. The industrial park is directly behind the 24-hour, fully operational Ocala airport and is about two miles from Interstate 75. The city and county have also approved the Ocala 489 industrial park running alongside I-75. It will sit on 489 acres zoned for retail, light and medium industrial with a rail spur. Many Florida cities are trying to attract companies with generous tax and financial aid. The above information is for the benefit of Dunnellon city officials, who think that Dunnellon can compete with larger, better located areas simply because they have a vision. The Boger Farm annex is the most recent example of the mind-boggling actions of Dunnellon City Council. Boger Farms is owned by a wealthy south Florida developer, who purchased it from McBride properties, a familiar name, for $2.5 million. It is currently zoned A1. As with all the property annexed by the city, you have to ask this question: why does this wealthy, experienced, heavily lawyered developer want to be annexed to the great metropolis of Dunnellon? Obviously, it is for their financial benefit at the expense of the Dunnellon taxpayer. The county property tax last year was $1784, so that is the immediate revenue gained for the 500-acre acquisition. Now it is waiting to be rezoned, parceled and the Dunnellon taxpayer will be on the hook for providing services. The same pattern applies to the Secret Promise tract owned by Dr. Pruitt, an even more wealthy and experienced developer who will take full advantage of the little city of Dunnellon. Again why would this experienced investor want to be annexed by Dunnellon? Dunnellon will provide the expensive infrastructure and have to give tax breaks to attract business. Look at the history of annexation so far and who has benefited, certainly not the Dunnellon resident. Ask Taylor County how its reserve at Sweetwater Bay project near Perry is going. It is a Dr. Pruitt development. He tried to dredge a mile-long canal over sensitive wetlands. It was only stopped by the legal action.

It portrays the Rainbow Springs area as requiring big investments to correct deficiencies. When Rainbow Springs was served by a private water/sewer company, the companys rates were regulated by the state of Florida. The state allowed for all costs for maintenance and repair to be built into rates that were charged to customers. There is no reason to believe that the previous water and sewer providers, under the close supervision of the state of Florida, did not maintain the system and replace aging components. To do otherwise, when all maintenance costs were justified and collectible in the rate structure, would have been ludicrous. Now the Dunnellon leadership is posting a completely false water and sewer repair list that implies that the Rainbow Springs system is in poor repair. How gullible are we supposed to be? Nobody can believe that limited investment and maintenance money available to the city would be targeted into what is clearly a well-maintained system. Customers of that Rainbow Springs system are being fleeced to compensate for the dire financial mismanagement by Dunnellons leaders.Ted Apple Rainbow Springs Challenge red-light camera ticketsI have written twice before on Dunnellons improper use of red-light cameras. I have pointed out that Florida Statute 316.0083 does not allow a ticket to be issued on the basis of camera evidence to a driver who is making a right hand turn without out stopping as long as he/she does so carefully and prudently. The Dunnellon police are slapping people with violations who pass over sensors embedded in the roadway 10 to 15 feet before the stop bar at any speed above 10 mph. This speed criterion makes no sense since the sensors range from 30 feet to 90 feet short of the intersections where the cameras and sensors are being used. It would seem that a careful and prudent turn would be simply without interfering with other traffic or pedestrians. Florida Statute 316.002 states that a municipality is not entitled to add criteria, such as the arbitrary 10 mph speed, to the statutes applicable on state roads. I went to traffic court a couple weeks ago with a lady who had objected to her citation. The courtroom contained two Dunnellon police officers and about 40 to 45 people who had been cited for red-light violations in Dunnellon. The police officers played the camera videotapes for the hearing officer and, in every case of a righthand turn heard before I exited the courtroom, the citations were dismissed. The hearing officer paid no attention to the recorded speed over 10 mph. My message here is, if you feel that you made a careful and prudent right hand turn, but were ticketed by camera evidence, take it to court. Burt Eno, Ph.D., PE(ret) Rainbow Springs Resident commends officers training skillsI would like to commend your officers for their swift action Monday, Aug. 13, on the Rainbow River. They were swift, well trained and very polite during our encounter. I am a dive master and have taken part in many water rescues so I do know the difference between good, bad and mediocre. Your team was absolutely superb. I would like to request that a copy of this email be place into each officers employment files. You should be extremely proud of your team and their work.

There were antique and classic cars on display, merchants with food and collectable. The Dunnellon Police Department set up a booth serving nonalcoholic frozen Strawberry Daiquiris and Margaritas, children and adults enjoyed the refreshing water as the Fire Department was cooling off the night with a good old fashion fire hose shower. The police department would like to thank the volunteers from City Hall, the police department and fire department who came out and help set up the booths, served drinks, sold raffle tickets, balloons and clean up after the event ended. I would like to give a distinct thank you to Dr. Perkins office for donating their evening proceeds toward the Special Olympic. We would also like to thank the fire department for allowing us to use their helium for the balloons. It was a wonderful event enjoyed by all, but could not have been successful with your help. We appreciate everyone who came out to support the Hot Summer Nights event and who supported our fundraising event. The money collected will help Special Olympic athletes with medical treatments and equipment. A portion of the proceeds also went to IDEAVs, this program is designed to support law enforcement agencies in their efforts to minimize DUI in our communities. Joanne Black, Chief, Dunnellon Police DepartmentGolf group bids farewell to golf pro, raises fundsThe Chitlins golf group sponsored a golf outing (French Fry Open) Thursday, Aug. 23, at Juliette Falls. The event was planned as an opportunity for friends to show their appreciation to Ernie Hanewinckel for his 14 years as the head golf pro at Rainbow Springs Golf and Country Club. It also gave Ernie a last chance to share some french fries before moving on to his new position as director of golf at the Sapelo Hammock Golf Club in Georgia. The 85 golfers were not deterred by the threat of rain. They completed their game and enjoyed a great lunch provided by Juliette Falls. The event was also held to raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project. A total of $1,241 was collected and is being donated to this important organization.

T he Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were casually sitting on the back porch enjoying our evening coffee together. Suddenly, the conversation turned to things political. This does not happen very often so at the moment I was a little surprised by this turn of current events. My wife does not spend much time keeping up with political news or events. Therefore, I was a little surprised when she made some comments in this area. It began when my wife said, Why is it every politician running for president insists that Washington is broken and they are just the ones to fix it? Well, she had me there. Most politicians worth their pork barrel payment have the audacity to believe they are political prophets able to see what is wrong with everything in this country, particularly those things in Washington, DC. Not only can they see what is wrong but also they know the exact way to fix it. However, no two solutions are alike. They look at the Washington, DC area and view it as a fixer upper. Then they go around the country hammering away with the promise that they can fix it and fix it for good. All these politicians have fixed our government for sure, but not in the way they think. It is more along the line of when you take Lucky to the veterinarian to have him fixed.

Of course, what my good wife does not realize is politicians can only fix hypothetical problems not real ones. And the more hypothetical the more eloquent they are in their speeches about it. Whenever you hear a politician waxing eloquent in his speech you always know you are listening to an airbag. It was my turn to astonish my wife. I have solved the mystery of picking the president of the United States, I said rather arrogantly. I was waiting for her response. And I did not have to wait long. You what? Then I laid out for her my scheme for picking the president. Its very simple. People pick a president about the same way they pick their nose. I knew from her astonished look I would have to explain what I meant. But it is true, nevertheless, picking a president is like picking your nose. The first thing is that nobody gets to select the nose they will have for the rest of their life unless of course they submit to plastic surgery. I have seen some noses that if it were mine, it would not be mine for long. We may owe plastic surgeons quite a lot for saving the on looking public the excruciating pain of looking at ugly noses. It is the same way nobody gets to choose the list of potential presidents they will have to decide on in the upcoming election. We all have to learn to live with the one or the other that has been given. Sad to say, in both areas, most of us have truly blown it. In this area of picking, some do it openly and unashamedly. They do not care who sees them or hears them for that matter. They firmly believe as Americans they have the constitutional right to do this plainly and blatantly. Of course, there are always those who deny they even have a nose let alone stooping to picking it in public. Some things, according to them, are better done in private, behind closed doors. Whoever invented closed doors has probably done society more benefit than any other invention. I must admit with some people it is quite hard to ignore the fact that they have a nose. It is the most prominent feature of his or her face but everybody has the right to live in the wonderful land of denial. Then I come to the more technical aspects of this matter of picking. Some prefer the left over the right while others prefer the right over the left. Then of course there are those who do both at the same time confusing everybody watching them. It is very confusing talking with these people because one time they are on one side and the next time they are on the other side. I know both sides are equally significant but I hate being confused. These, I think, would be called equal opportunity pickers. They do not prefer one side to the other but both sides, in their opinion, is good. It is hard to argue with logic like that. It is the same kind of logic that your wife uses when she asked you, Does this dress make me look fat? No matter if you are picking the president of the United States or your nose, you always end up with the same thing. There is only one selecting process that is devoid of any frustration at all. Jesus mentioned it, Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. (John 15:16 KJV). Gods choice has eternal ramifications. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P .O. Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

The amateur Mixed Martial Arts fighter has won his past two bouts. More importantly the 2009 Dunnellon High School graduate can now add champion to his resume. Leone won the Florida Light Heavyweight Kickboxing title Saturday night at the Dynamic Fighting Championship at the International Palm Resort in Orlando, taking out his opponent with a first round TKO (technical knock out) in the co-main event, which was slated for five rounds. I am enjoying myself, Im pretty excited, he said, explaining his recorded the lone knockout during the nights card. It was cool. Leone said hed watched plenty of video on his opponent, expecting his competitor to fare well. He seemed like he could take some good shots, Leone said. I wasnt expecting a knockout that soon. After having six months off prior to his past two bouts, Leone said climbing back in the ring so quickly after his fight earlier this month seemed to pay dividends. I felt calmer out there, I just felt comfortable out there, he said. Leone said going into someSpecial to the Riverland NewsTony Leone poses with his title belt after a decisive first-round victory. Tigers aim to roll in opener Now the real test for the Dunnellon High School football team begins. The Tigers open their regular-season schedule at 7:30 p.m. Friday against Ocala West Port, a game which Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley called a big game. Theyre really athletic, theyve got great skills players, Beasley said, noting Wolfpack quarterback Kalen Woodyard can throw the ball well and running back Will Sims is a solid ball carrier. They are tough to defend. They run and pass pretty well. West Port is coming off a 133 preseason victory against Belleview in which the Wolfpack were plagued by turnovers. West Port fumbled twice, once inside the Rattlers 3-yard line. However, Beasley explained that his biggest concern is shutting down the Wolfpacks high-octane offense and keeping their playmakers off the field. We just need to control the clock and grind it out, he explained. Obviously, we cannot turn the ball over. Hopefully, we can move the chains and get some first downs and get it down in the red zone and score. Scoring didnt seem to be a major problem for the Tigers last Friday in their 33-23 victory against Lecanto. Dunnellons varsity squad found the end zone four times in three quarters of action before sitting out the final quarter of action to allow the junior varsity squad the chance to garner some game experience. Despite his teams ability to score, Beasley said the overall feeling among the coaching staff and team wasnt rave reviews. We werent real happy with the execution of our passing game, he explained, despite quarterback Jordon Boleys four-touchdown performance against the Panther. It just wasnt where wed like it to be. We had some drops, some bad routes. We have a long ways to go before weve got our passing game where we want it to be. Defensively, Beasley was happy with his line, which he said really after their quarterback pretty good, evidenced by the five sacks, forced fumble and fumble recovery. We missed some tackles, gave up two big plays, Beasley said. We dont normally miss too many tackles. We need to get better play from linebackers. Penalties were a problem for the Tigers varsity squad against Lecanto as Dunnellon was flagged 14 times. It effected us everywhere, Beasley said. You start worrying about getting a penalty, instead of focusing on the play, which is good for us to some adversity. Weve got to learn how to deal with some adversity and rally the troops. We have to find a way to get through it. But we cannot let officials dictate the pace of the game. Some of it starts at the top with me. Well get better at that. JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon tight end Connor Wentz dives for the end zone on a first-quarter touchdown reception. The seniors 13-yard scoring grab from quarterback Joron Boley put the Tigers on the scoreboard first, giving Dunnellon an early 7-0 lead. Wentz would later set up Boleys 2-yard touchdown run in the third quarter with a 24-yard reception. Dunnellon will host West Port Friday in season opener for both teams Dunnellon stymies Panthers in Fall Classic, 33-23 QB Boley has four-TD performance The 2012 high school football season is now a matter of a day away, which means it is time for the Dunnellon High School football squad to be out on the field. After their long preparations of practicing all year for the upcoming season, it was time to put the Tigers to the test to see if practice has paid off. Dunnellon High School hosted its annual preseason game Friday against Lecanto High School at the Ned Love Field. Lecanto was much more improved since the last time I saw them in early spring, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley. They were a good team to play. This game allowed both teams concentrate on the strengths and weaknesses for the upcoming year. The varsity squad played the first three quarters while the junior varsity competed in the final quarter. For the Tigers, however, the cat fight turned in their favor, 33-23. Penalites 28 flags were thrown throughout the game, made the clock drag on.

RECORDS: Season opener for both teams. West Port knocked off Belleview, 13-3, in its preseason tune-up while Dunnellon outlasted Lecanto, 33-23, in its annual Fall Classic. WHO TO WATCH: Dunnellon QB Jordon Boley factored into all four touchdowns for the Tigers against Lecanto. The senior signal-caller threw for two scores, one each to TE Connor Wentz and WR Andrew Jackson Boley also ran for two more scores. Wentz set up Boleys second TD, a late third-quarter score to put the game out of reach after the Panthers closed to within 20-17.

get into a rhythm when you are getting all those flags, Beasley said. It got in our heads but I believe we overcame it a little. With the ball starting in Lecantos favor, junior quarterback Christian Barber missed the handoff and fumbled the ball, allowing junior Keiwan Jones to recover. Dunnellon managed to get the ball down the field, and brought in the first touchdown of the game. Inside the 40-yard line and 10 minutes remaining in the first quarter, senior quarterback Jordan Boley threw a 13yard pass to senior Conner Wentz, who converted the pass for a touchdown putting the Tigers ahead 7-0 after the point after. Lecanto again struggled to get the ball down the field, but did cut the Tigers lead to 7-3 with a 27-yard field goal. Dunnellon did not react to this well, looking for the points back the Tigers converted another possession for a touchdown after Boley faked the handoff and ran left side for a 36-yard scamper for the Tigers. After the extra point, the Tigers led 14-3. Both teams failed to move the ball down the field as half time arrived. With 6:52 remaining in the third quarter, senior Andre Jackson pulled in a 40-yard touchdown after receiving the pass from Boley. The pass that Jordan threw to Andre was the definite game changer and it was one of the best plays of the night, Beasley said. Looking for a comeback after making several first-and10s, Lecanto scored its first touchdown when Ricky Marcic dragged in a 22-yard reception from Barber to cut Dunnellons lead to 14-10. Lecanto struck again with another 19-yard reception hauled in by Austin Stephens with 1:33 left in the third quarter. Dunnellon took the bull by the horns and with 3rd-and-14 on the Panthers 46-yard line Wentz hauled in a pass from Boley, setting up a 2-yard scoring run for the senior signal caller. It capped the scoring for each varsity team and gave the Tigers a 27-17 lead entering the fourth quarter. Though the contest wasnt over, it gave the junior varsity team a chance to shine. Sophomore quarterback Chase Brattin passed the ball to Sophomore Justin Hamm, who ran right side for a 20yard touchdown for the Tigers. The Lecanto JV then took action as sophomore TeAndre Hopkins ran in a touchdown with 20 seconds left in the game to cap the scoring at 3323. We did miss some tackles, but that will improve throughout the year, Beasley said, noting Jvonn Swoll, Dana Washington, Keiwan Jones and Cody Ingalls really stood out that night. Our offense line did well and our running backs did their job, he continued. Even though it was an intense game it only makes us better. The Dunnellon JV squad will play at 6:30 p.m. today at West Port. The varsity team will play at 7:30 p.m. Friday against West Port at Ned Love Field in the season-opener for both teams.Riverland News, Thursday, August 30, 2012 11 000CGEK Y o u r H o m e t o w n F i s h M a r k e t S i m p l y S e a f o o d LLC 12149 S.

It was cool going into someones house and winning in exciting fashion, he explained, noting he had just six fans his family in attendance. When he came out, the whole place went crazy. When I knocked him down the first time, the whole crowd was silent. When I dropped him again 15 seconds later, the fans were going crazy. The crowd was really great, very hospitable, too. Leone said he didnt train much differently than his past fights, with the lone exception he of spending time working at a Crystal River-based gym. I just prepared the way I always do, he said. I just worked a little more on my strength base, I just didnt do the grappling and stuff. I spent much more time in the kick boxing work and more time working on my stand up stuff. Leone was back in the gym as of Tuesday morning, hopeful for another fight to be lined up quickly. He said in all most likelihood, hell be back in the ring within four to six weeks, but explained if his managers can line up a fight sooner, hes more than OK with it. I just want to keep getting better every day, keep building my resume and a collect a few more belts, he said. Leone said the amateur championships make a big difference on a fighters resume, because it shows theyre a contender. He believes the more titles he can collect in the coming months, the more it could help him land a professional contract. I solidified my accomplishments, Leone explained. Im not just another amateur out there. Im a title holder. It solidifies all of my hard work. It gives me more opportunities. If I can add a few more belts, it could lead to a pro fight. If I didnt have any belts and some wishy-washy record, theyre going to look elsewhere. However, if I come in with some standing, people are going to want to see me fight more.

no one. The sad part is most Americans pick their president by who has the best commercials. He who lies best, wins. I get angry and sad because we are going nowhere fast. When I grew up one of the first things you learned in school was compromise. Now its a dirty word. From sports, to religion, to politics it has become Us against Them. We are no longer the United States. We are the divided minds. For every welfare cheat a Republican brings to the table, a Democrat can go head to head with some corporate giant who doesnt pay his share of taxes. The middle class gets it from both ends. Soon there will only be the poor and the wealthy. You know who I am disgusted with the most? Me! And you! Yes, you, too. We do nothing. Why arent we protesting, rioting, doing something? Why arent we mad as hell and were not going to take it anymore? Why do we sit on our butts and do nothing while the politicians burn down Rome? We, the American taxpayer, used to have sole ownership of the politician that was voted into office. Now special interest groups own the candidate. Why do we bother to vote? The one with the most money wins. Just tell us who are next president is going to be and we can all go on with our lives. I used to have faith in the process. I lost all faith when the Supreme court opened the floodgates and said money and power were more important than my vote. I told my Facebook friends and family that I would be unsubscribing anyone who posts political commentary, until after the elections. I want one part of my life to be a political-free zone. Like the kid in the sock commercial says I am sick of it. Yeah, just sick of it!12 Riverland News, Thursday, August 30, 2012 465-3200 20559 Chestnut St., Dunnellon OPEN: Wed. thru Sat.

The developers will get what they want, when they want it. Present city officials are on a course to grow this city's payroll, debt burden and operational cost to unsustainable levels. The only ones who benefit from the actions of this management are the city manager, employees and outside developers. You would surmise that when the average city worker salary and benefits far exceed the average Dunnellon resident, the residents would be rightfully concerned. Dunnellon is on a course of economic chaos. I know that some mistakenly believe that Rainbow Springs residents want to run the city. Believe me, we all wish Rainbow Springs was in no way involved in city business. Rainbow Springs was hijacked into the sorry financial mess of this poorly run city via the utility purchase. Basically, we are in the sad situation of being unfortunate enough to live within 5 miles of Dunnellon, which seems intent on committing economic ruin. Dunnellon has the highest tax rate, utility rates and operating cost in Marion County. Traffic light cameras, Greenlight, annexing future liabilities and bad management are the legacy of the present city manager. To Woodland and Forest residents, you will be connected to the Dunnellon Utility system probably sooner than later. The county has the power to compel you to connect to an available utility plant. To Dunnellon residents, your city is drowning in debt and being mismanaged, it is up to up to save your city. We all need to work together to save Dunnellon. Steve Swett is an 18year Rainbow Springs resident and retired Dunnellon Postmaster. SMILE continued from page 4 hearted. I hope he never changes. My granddaughter rolled her eyes and told me not to embarrass her at the bus stop. Some things I wish had never changed. Yet, here they are another year older. James is going into second grade and Dominique the eighth grade. Next year shell be in high school and I dont even want to think about that. She was a little girl a week ago. Last year, I was bringing them to and from school. I will miss that time with them now that Im back to work. Its a perfect opportunity to talk and find out whats going on in their lives. Especially when you pick them up, they have so much to say. I just hope they both have a great year. I hope they have good teachers and form some true friendships. I have no doubts they will both shine. They will amaze a few people, and they will make their Nanaw so very proud.

City aims for federal grant again After missing out on qualifying for a $600,000 Community Development Block Grant by 1/2 point a year ago, the Dunnellon City Council set the wheels in motion Monday night to pursue the grant again this year. A year ago, city officials were under a tight deadline to apply for the grant. Thats not the case this year as all applications are due Oct. 1, said Fred Fox of Fred Fox Enterprises, which is assisting the city in filling the application. Fox said the city could choose to apply for a number of projects; however, he urged them to go with this project again because its the lone project the city has that is shovel ready. Thats going to get you 100 points right away, he explained to the Council. The grants are based on a point system, the more points you can automatically secure, the better off you are in the process, he added. The city, if it qualifies for the grant, must match the federal funding dollar for dollar. If the city does acquire the grant funding, officials plan on using the money to install a 12-inch water line from the DunnellonMarion County Airport along County Road 484 to the Dunnellon Heights area. The water line will also run Officials unveil initial budget Public hearing set for Sept. 10The Dunnellon City Council got its first glimpse of the 2012-13 Fiscal Year budget, which not only shows a drop in revenues, but a cut in the millage rate. The budgets for both of the citys enterprise funds water and sewer and Greenlight Dunnellon Communications were not complete and will be introduced at a date yet to be announced by city officials. This years general fund budget is tentatively set at $3,124,218, a 4.1 percent drop compared to last years budget. The FY Budget for 2011-12 was $3,257,358. In July, the City Council set millage rate for Fiscal Year 2012-13 at 6.8013, a 1/2 point lower had it adopted the roll back rate. The roll back rate meant the City Council could have set the millage rate at a level to produce the same amount of revenue. Currently, the citys millage rate is 7.1408. Setting it at the current level means city officials cannot raise it; however, they can opt lower it if they choose to. Overall, city officials said its a little more than a 6 percent drop compared to a year ago. The Belleview City Council set its millage rate at 3.9912 and is likely to collect $200,000 less in revenue this year. The Ocala City Council voted unanimously to set its tentative millage rate at the rolled-back rate of 6.1502 per $1,000 of taxable value, a 3.7 percent increase over the current millage rate.

ELECTION 2012 DUNNELLON CITY COUNCIL Riverland NewsMayor Fred Ward, left, who is seeking a third term, will face challenger Nathanael Nathan C. Whitt, second from left, for Seat 1 in the Nov. 6 General Election. The winner will secure a four-year term on the Dunnellon City Council. Councilwoman Penny Fleeger, second from right, will begin her second term in November after running unopposed. Councilman Erik Collop, right, will also begin his term in November. His term expires in 2014. Businessman files, will challenge Ward for mayoral seat in November election Two races for the Dunnellon City Council are over before they even began. However, city residents will get the opportunity to decide one race in November on the General Election ballot. Councilwoman Penny Fleeger, Seat 5, and Councilman Erik Collop, Seat 4, are unopposed, meaning they automatically retain their seats. For more information, see related story on Page 1. Mayor Fred Ward, who filed Aug. 20 for his third team on Seat 1, the mayors position, does have a challenger. Local businessman Nathanael Nathan C. Whitt filed his paperwork Friday, moments before the noon deadline, giving the two-term mayor a challenger for the seat. Why not? Whitt said about his foray into politics. Whitt said hes grown frustrated with the division created by past actions of the City Council, namely the purchase of the Rainbow Springs Utility system and the 25 percent surcharge which have lead to Rainbow Springs residents to boycott local businesses. I dont feel like were moving in the right direction, said the father of two girls, 7 and 5, both of whom attend Dunnellon Elementary School. Diplomacy is in my blood. Whitt said his top priority would be to mend fences with not just only Rainbow Springs residents, but the businesses effected by the boycott and bring all parties to the table to find a solution. I want to foster those relationships, Whitt, a long-time musician, said. Whitt, who has operated and owned Rainbow River Canoe and Kayak for the past 10 years, said he also knows what could be a vital economic engine for the city, its taxpayers, both residential and business the rivers. Honestly, what else is there? he asked. Whitt said he sees visitors coming from across the United States as well as large numbers of visitors from Europe who visit Dunnellon for the opportunity to take in the Rainbow River and visit the state park. People come here for the rivers, he said. Thats what I hear most of the time. We need to use that to our advantage, weIncumbents unopposed in respective bids for officePenny Fleeger has a familiarity with city business since first taking office in 2008.

Both will be sworn-in at the first City Council meeting in November after the election. Fleeger will serve until 2016 while Collop will serve until 2014.

American Legion Post Post 58 of Dunnellon is looking for younger, new members to join the American Legion. The 2013 membership drive year has begun. Currently, the Post Membership consists of veterans from World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam, Lebanon and Grenada, Panama, and the First Gulf War. As those of us from World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam grow ever older, we the current members of the American Legion are fervently reaching out to all veterans of The Gulf War and the War on Terrorism from its beginning Dec. 20, 1990, to the present time. These new veterans are all eligible to join the American Legion. The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nations largest veterans organization committed and dedicated to mentoring and sponsorship of youth programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting a strong national security, and continued devotion and assistance to our fellow service members and veterans. This devotion and continued service to our service members and veterans includes activities such as: Troop Support Services, Legion Riders, college scholarships to high school students, Veterans Administration services, job assistance programs, crime resistance, Missing Childrens Programs, drug abuse programs, teenage suicide prevention programs, Special Olympics, the National Emergency Fund, Flag Honor Guard, Sons of the American Legion, Childrens Miracle Network affiliation, Boy Scouts, Boys State and Nation, blood donor program, family support network and Heroes to Hometowns, to name a few. The most beneficial program for veterans is the American Legions continued assistance program to veterans concerning Veterans Administration issues. The local Post service officer is highly trained in answering and helping the new veteran member resolve Veterans Administration Benefit issues. Facing the Veterans Administration alone can be taxing. But with the help of the worlds largest veterans organization, many veterans have realized benefits they did not know they were eligible for. It is the new group of veterans that can benefit greatly from the American Legion, as they are just returning home and faced with reentering civilian society. Some may need Veteran Benefits immediately. Others may suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder, which does not appear until they have been state side for a period of time. The local American Legion Post can help you identify and fill those needs. Current Post members are working diligently recruiting new members, but unless the new veteran is aware of the services offered to the veteran, they may not know where to look or go for assistance. If you are a new veteran of the Gulf War, or the War on Terrorism, just home from a tour of duty, recently separated from your military unit, feel assured you can turn to your local American Legion Post for help, camaraderie, and fellowship. For more information regarding services, upcoming activities and membership, call your Local American Legion Post 58 at 352-4894453, or Post 58 Membership Chairman Frank Strobl at 352-598-1231.

Fred C. Stark, who ran unopposed in 2010. This will be Fleegers second term on the Council after being elected in 2008. Im very pleased, she said about earning a second term without facing opposition. This has been my first term, ever, in politics. Its been a real learning experience. She said her reasons for seeking a second term include seeing many of the projects the current Council has put into motion, namely the bicycle/pedestrian trail through town and Greenlight Communications. Thats why Im glad Im still on Council, she explained. Im very pleased with the progress that Greenlight has made. I think its the future for us if were going to have jobs for the kids. Thats my main important things, and the ecology. Ive been involved with that for a long, long time. Fleeger is hopeful that Greenlight will be able to attract small businesses here in need of fiber. Im very much in hopes of getting some small business that require fiber, like medial and that sort of thing, she said, noting it would be nice to have something like a Timber Ridge Medical Facility in the city or perhaps a call center. The kids need jobs and its not fun when you have to leave home. They dont want to leave home. There are not many places where you can be at home anymore. They dont exist. Her happiest accomplishment is seeing that police department has added a Marine Unit. All the police have had training for emergencies on the river, she said. The boat is able to get to emergencies, which in the past hasnt been the case. There have been some rough things that have happened on the river. Fleeger said shed like to see controlled, proper growth in the future. So we can retain the feeling we have, she added. In hopes of promoting Dunnellon as an ecotourism destination, shes hopeful her new found role on the Transportation Planning Organization will help the city to secure grant funding to complete the bicycle/pedestrian trail throughout town. I want to get the people through town and hopefully well be able to get some grants to really do it right, she explained. I would love to see a good bed and breakfast in town, several of them really. Id like to see us become a real hub, but I dont want to see us out grow what we have. Collop, who was appointed earlier this month, said he is eager to continue to learn. He noted it didnt take long for him to become interested in seeking the seat for the longterm. Im very excited, he said about serving for the long haul. I think I have a clear vision of what I see about the city and where its headed. Though he said he might sound clich, he pointed out that growth is inevitable. We just have to do it in a responsible manner, Collop explained. We want to keep the river in good shape; we want to keep the natural beauty of town. Collop said finding a way to capture the tourism dollars passing through town is essential, because he sees the numbers of folks who pass through on a frequent basis. I think somehow we got bypassed, he said. Now, we need to find a way to capitalize on being able to capture some of that business that passes through here is essential. We lack lodging for that, but I also realize thats a tough business when so much of your business is seasonal. We just need to work toward improving that and helping the businesses out so that they can grow and prosper. said about the drop in millage rate. Everyone else is either keeping theirs the same or raising rates. To make up for the shortfall without raising taxes this year, city officials plan on dipping into the reserve funds to a tune of $380,263. Most city departments show moderate cuts; however, a year ago, city officials interspersed funds from the Tax Increment Financing District (TIFD), or Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) to make up for budget shortfalls. Thats not so much the case this year as it was in 2011, but salaries are expected to increase from the CRA funds, about 17 percent, or close to $19,000. Officials, in their tentative budget, are projecting to bring in $330,000 in net revenues from the redlight cameras. Its a far cry from the $630,000 the much-maligned devices brought in a year ago, according to city figures. When the City Council formerly adopted the use of the items in 2010, American Traffic Solutions had projected a net income of about $1.6 million, though city officials then tentatively budgets to bring in $800,000. The figure does not include the $200,000 yearly contractual obligations the city has with ATS for its services. The city is set to enter the final year of its contract with ATS for the redlight camera service; officials can either re-opt into a new contract with the Arizona-based company or let the contract expire. The Council has scheduled a public hearing date for tentative budget and millage rate approval for Sept. 10 and the final public hearing Sept. 24, a week before it needs to approved due to the Oct. 1 Fiscal Year deadline. The citys fiscal year runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30.

SECOND CLASS PERMIT #681-730POSTMASTER: Send address changes to: RIVERLAND NEWS, 20441 E. PENNSYLVANIA AVE.,DUNNELLON, FL 34432-6035 past two proposed development areas, which include Rainbow River Ranches and Blue Run Ranches. Burt Eno, a Rainbow Springs resident, was critical of the citys plans to increase water pressure in the Dunnellon Heights area. I object to the share of the cost of this project, Eno said, noting the $602,000 investment the city must obligate toward the project if its awarded the grant. The lions share of this amount will come from fees paid by Rainbow Springs residents. Eno told the Council if their true objective to increase water pressure in Dunnellon Heights was truly as stated, the city could purchase an acre of land in Dunnellon Heights, drill a well and install a small groundlevel pressure tank and treatment chamber with an emergency generator backup a lot cheaper. If you really wanted to revitalize the city with such a grant you would propose to repair the leaking pipes throughout the city, he said. This would have the ancillary benefit of boosting the pressure throughout the city water system. Eno pointedly told the Council the project is a ruse to supply both proposed subdivisions with the necessary water supply each one will need. This is not the intent of the CDBG Neighborhood Revitalization program, he said. In other action, the Council: Heard a presentation by Kimley-Horn & Associates for Water & Wastewater Utility Master Plan. For more about this story, see the Sept. 6 edition of the Riverland News. Approved an agreement with Kimley-Horn & Associates for engineering for the East Pennsylvania Avenue Streetscape project, which coincides with the bicycle/ pedestrian plan. Approved a rezoning request for Dr. Neil Lumapas and Viviene Lumapas for three parcels of property they are planning to purchase on East Pennsylvania Avenue to construct a 9,000square-foot medical office. Had an administrative public hearing regarding the voluntary annexation of Boger Farms, LLC. The Quasi Judicial hearing amending the Comprehensive Plan was rescheduled for Sept. 24, because the citys Planning Board has not been able to review it. The Quasi Judicial session remains in effect until the City Council reconvenes about the topic Sept. 24. For more about this story, see the Sept. 6 edition of the Riverland News. GRANT continued from page 1 BUDGET continued from page 1 INCUMBENTS continued from page 1 need to bring those people here; we need to have them here. Whitt understands most people might look at it his campaign as an opportunity to increase his business, but thats certainly not the case he said. I know Ive got sit on the fence when it comes to those issues, he explained. But Ive also got to decide whats best for the residents and businesses. Thats what Im going to do. Whitt said he believes there can be a balance between embracing the river for the tourism it draws to the area and protecting the beauty of the natural resource. The tourists are not a problem that others think they are, he explained. Whitt said his major concerns are the citys aging infrastructure, especially the aging water main line running underneath U.S. 41. If that blows, were all in trouble, he said. Fixing it needs to be the top priority. If it blows, theyll be trucking in water here for along time. For now, he said if hes elected, hell work to mend fences with Rainbow Springs residents. We should all be working together to improve the community, he said. Its a win-win for everyone.

River views Proposed bike trail wont help local businessesThe proposed bike trail through Dunnellon will be a benefit to serious bikers, but not the city. Bikers ride through a city, they do not linger and shop. Serious bikers do not shop, eat a heavy meal or linger to browse. So what business will benefit from this biker trail that will disrupt Pennsylvania Avenue? Does anyone think they will go to other areas of Dunnellon to spur the economy? Dunnellon a great place to bike through as quick as possible could be the new town slogan.Ty Miller DunnellonDo city leaders have a conscience?Editors Note: This is a letter sent to Mayor Fred Ward and City Manager Lisa Algiere.I am a recent widow living on a fixed budget and I am writing on behalf of myself and my neighbors. We are mostly senior citizens, living on a fixed (ever decreasing) budget. Since you purchased the wells at Rainbow Springs, our water rates have increased to an unaffordable amount. My electric is now cheaper than the price of my water and sewerage bill. I have decreased the amount of lawn watering from twice a week to once a week and that, of course, is only when it doesnt rain. I try not to be wasteful, but still my water bills exceed my budget and now you plan to raise us again. Where is your conscience? We are not a bunch of rich, lazy donothing seniors. We volunteer and support your town, your businesses and your schools. We are retired older citizens who worked hard all our lives and deserve to retire with dignity. Please take a fresh look at your decisions.Elinore McAlonen DunnellonWhos going to pay for system improvements?Once again, the Dunnellon mayor, Council and city manager dive to the lowest ethical depths. They are currently taking another step to justify their policy of fleecing homeowners outside the city limits through unfair utility bills. The citys leadership, partnered in by their in-house and in-pocket engineering contractor, is presenting its plan for water and sewer projects as part of the updating of the plan covering the expanded water and sewer service area. The plan is falsely conceived Officials need to plot better course Can you believe school is back in already? Where did the summer go? The days and months just seem to fly by, and now the fun is over and the kids are back in the classrooms. I can still remember that awful sick-to-my-stomach feeling when I was a kid on the first day of school. I was always so nervous. What should I wear? How should I do my hair? What would the other kids think about me? My brothers were always so cool, calm and collected. They thought I was crazy for worrying, but I guess thats the difference between boys and girls. When I was growing up, you didnt see the other kids during summer break unless they lived in your neighborhood. We lived way in the back of Rainbow Lakes Estates. Most of my close friends lived on The Granada in town. I was so jealous because they could walk to the river and hang out together all summer. I told my parents thats where I wanted to live. However, we didnt move. There was no Facebook, cell phones or Skype to keep in touch. We had one telephone in our house and it was out in the open where everybody could hear you. So if a friend did call to invite you to a birthday party or something, you said what you needed to say and hung up. Boy, Im really showing my age. I always loved school though. I was such a nerd. I loved learning new things. English and math were my favorites, but eventually one special teacher made me also appreciate current events. What I excelled in the most though was the socializing. I made straight As in almost all my subjects, but then would end up with Ns in conduct. It even kept me off the cheerleading squad for a while, which didnt make sense since you have to be loud to cheer. Of course no matter how much you like school youre never ready for summer to end. Summer means vacations, trips, swimming, beaches, eating whenever you want and sleeping late. We always try to make the break as fun as possible for the grandkids. Every year since my granddaughter, Dominique, was a baby weve done a girls weekend in Daytona. Well, now we allow little James to come, too. Its our chance to lie in the sun all day and then shop all night. Everything the guys in our lives dont enjoy. Its a great time to bond and be silly. Of course, we had our trip to Tennessee this year and many, many weekends full of travel ball. We also celebrated my dads 80th birthday with party and we had a week with my brother and nieces from Iowa. So I would say it was a pretty good summer. Even though the grandkids were sad to see their vacation end, I think they were both a little bit excited to get back. My grandson had tears again the first day.

I think that sums up this years crop of politicians. Nothing changes. Politicians say and do stupid things and we continue to vote them into office. I am disgusted by the whole process. Its depressing, appalling and discouraging and that comment is coming from the optimist deep, deep inside me. By now you know about the Atkins misstep into open mouth insert foot syndrome. Most people were upset about his use of the word legitimate when describing rape. There is no excuse for stupidity and insensitivity when it comes to the horrible violation of a woman. Yes, I was disturbed by his poor choice of words. While most people bashed him for the use of the word legitimate, I on the other hand was amazed by his medical authority. I did not know my body had the power to shut down a pregnancy. Really, who knew I was superwoman? If I had known that, I would not have wasted half my life being a short and dumpy, mousey blonde (occasional redhead). Dang! If I only knew I could tell my body to be a buxom, 6-foot, blue-eyed blonde bombshell. My life would have been a lot different if I had only used my bodys magical powers! I give up! No matter who wins, the middle class still loses. Our government is owned by big business. Did you know that a large group of the Fortune 500 companies donate to both political parties? Either way, they are guaranteed to have a say in the White House. Thats disgraceful. Money and power win and we suffer. We need to do away with lobbyists. The money in politics is maddening. Did you know that thanks to the Supreme Court millions of dollars can now be spent by so called not-for-profit organizations on misleading to down right false advertisement and there is nothing we can do to stop it? The FCC cant fine them. They can get away with this without fear of punishment. All the candidate has to do is say I had nothing to do with it and his reputation is untarnished. All those ads that say Paid for by Americans who love Americans or Americans for Puppies and Apple Pie are not-for profit fronts for lobbyists, big business and big unions. They dont have to tell you who they are or how they are connected to the candidate. They are accountable to Sock it to em! Off Southwest State Road 40 on Southwest 67th Avenue, there is an empty industrial park. It has in place sewers, water, fiber optic, fire hydrants and all county services. It is operational ready for business. Ocala is still awaiting word if one company will accept the offer of $4.9 million of land grants, tax exemptions and other financial aid from the city to build there. The industrial park is directly behind the 24-hour, fully operational Ocala airport and is about two miles from Interstate 75. The city and county have also approved the Ocala 489 industrial park running alongside I-75. It will sit on 489 acres zoned for retail, light and medium industrial with a rail spur. Many Florida cities are trying to attract companies with generous tax and financial aid. The above information is for the benefit of Dunnellon city officials, who think that Dunnellon can compete with larger, better located areas simply because they have a vision. The Boger Farm annex is the most recent example of the mind-boggling actions of Dunnellon City Council. Boger Farms is owned by a wealthy south Florida developer, who purchased it from McBride properties, a familiar name, for $2.5 million. It is currently zoned A1. As with all the property annexed by the city, you have to ask this question: why does this wealthy, experienced, heavily lawyered developer want to be annexed to the great metropolis of Dunnellon? Obviously, it is for their financial benefit at the expense of the Dunnellon taxpayer. The county property tax last year was $1784, so that is the immediate revenue gained for the 500-acre acquisition. Now it is waiting to be rezoned, parceled and the Dunnellon taxpayer will be on the hook for providing services. The same pattern applies to the Secret Promise tract owned by Dr. Pruitt, an even more wealthy and experienced developer who will take full advantage of the little city of Dunnellon. Again why would this experienced investor want to be annexed by Dunnellon? Dunnellon will provide the expensive infrastructure and have to give tax breaks to attract business. Look at the history of annexation so far and who has benefited, certainly not the Dunnellon resident. Ask Taylor County how its reserve at Sweetwater Bay project near Perry is going. It is a Dr. Pruitt development. He tried to dredge a mile-long canal over sensitive wetlands. It was only stopped by the legal action.

It portrays the Rainbow Springs area as requiring big investments to correct deficiencies. When Rainbow Springs was served by a private water/sewer company, the companys rates were regulated by the state of Florida. The state allowed for all costs for maintenance and repair to be built into rates that were charged to customers. There is no reason to believe that the previous water and sewer providers, under the close supervision of the state of Florida, did not maintain the system and replace aging components. To do otherwise, when all maintenance costs were justified and collectible in the rate structure, would have been ludicrous. Now the Dunnellon leadership is posting a completely false water and sewer repair list that implies that the Rainbow Springs system is in poor repair. How gullible are we supposed to be? Nobody can believe that limited investment and maintenance money available to the city would be targeted into what is clearly a well-maintained system. Customers of that Rainbow Springs system are being fleeced to compensate for the dire financial mismanagement by Dunnellons leaders.Ted Apple Rainbow SpringsChallenge red-light camera ticketsI have written twice before on Dunnellons improper use of red-light cameras. I have pointed out that Florida Statute 316.0083 does not allow a ticket to be issued on the basis of camera evidence to a driver who is making a right hand turn without out stopping as long as he/she does so carefully and prudently. The Dunnellon police are slapping people with violations who pass over sensors embedded in the roadway 10 to 15 feet before the stop bar at any speed above 10 mph. This speed criterion makes no sense since the sensors range from 30 feet to 90 feet short of the intersections where the cameras and sensors are being used. It would seem that a careful and prudent turn would be simply without interfering with other traffic or pedestrians. Florida Statute 316.002 states that a municipality is not entitled to add criteria, such as the arbitrary 10 mph speed, to the statutes applicable on state roads. I went to traffic court a couple weeks ago with a lady who had objected to her citation. The courtroom contained two Dunnellon police officers and about 40 to 45 people who had been cited for red-light violations in Dunnellon. The police officers played the camera videotapes for the hearing officer and, in every case of a righthand turn heard before I exited the courtroom, the citations were dismissed. The hearing officer paid no attention to the recorded speed over 10 mph. My message here is, if you feel that you made a careful and prudent right hand turn, but were ticketed by camera evidence, take it to court. Burt Eno, Ph.D., PE(ret) Rainbow SpringsResident commends officers training skillsI would like to commend your officers for their swift action Monday, Aug. 13, on the Rainbow River. They were swift, well trained and very polite during our encounter. I am a dive master and have taken part in many water rescues so I do know the difference between good, bad and mediocre. Your team was absolutely superb. I would like to request that a copy of this email be place into each officers employment files. You should be extremely proud of your team and their work.

There were antique and classic cars on display, merchants with food and collectable. The Dunnellon Police Department set up a booth serving nonalcoholic frozen Strawberry Daiquiris and Margaritas, children and adults enjoyed the refreshing water as the Fire Department was cooling off the night with a good old fashion fire hose shower. The police department would like to thank the volunteers from City Hall, the police department and fire department who came out and help set up the booths, served drinks, sold raffle tickets, balloons and clean up after the event ended. I would like to give a distinct thank you to Dr. Perkins office for donating their evening proceeds toward the Special Olympic. We would also like to thank the fire department for allowing us to use their helium for the balloons. It was a wonderful event enjoyed by all, but could not have been successful with your help. We appreciate everyone who came out to support the Hot Summer Nights event and who supported our fundraising event. The money collected will help Special Olympic athletes with medical treatments and equipment. A portion of the proceeds also went to IDEAVs, this program is designed to support law enforcement agencies in their efforts to minimize DUI in our communities.Joanne Black, Chief, Dunnellon Police DepartmentGolf group bids farewell to golf pro, raises fundsThe Chitlins golf group sponsored a golf outing (French Fry Open) Thursday, Aug. 23, at Juliette Falls. The event was planned as an opportunity for friends to show their appreciation to Ernie Hanewinckel for his 14 years as the head golf pro at Rainbow Springs Golf and Country Club. It also gave Ernie a last chance to share some french fries before moving on to his new position as director of golf at the Sapelo Hammock Golf Club in Georgia. The 85 golfers were not deterred by the threat of rain. They completed their game and enjoyed a great lunch provided by Juliette Falls. The event was also held to raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project. A total of $1,241 was collected and is being donated to this important organization.

The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were casually sitting on the back porch enjoying our evening coffee together. Suddenly, the conversation turned to things political. This does not happen very often so at the moment I was a little surprised by this turn of current events. My wife does not spend much time keeping up with political news or events. Therefore, I was a little surprised when she made some comments in this area. It began when my wife said, Why is it every politician running for president insists that Washington is broken and they are just the ones to fix it? Well, she had me there. Most politicians worth their pork barrel payment have the audacity to believe they are political prophets able to see what is wrong with everything in this country, particularly those things in Washington, DC. Not only can they see what is wrong but also they know the exact way to fix it. However, no two solutions are alike. They look at the Washington, DC area and view it as a fixer upper. Then they go around the country hammering away with the promise that they can fix it and fix it for good. All these politicians have fixed our government for sure, but not in the way they think. It is more along the line of when you take Lucky to the veterinarian to have him fixed.

Sharon L. Bolden, 68Sharon L. Bolden, 68, of Fruitland Park, born May 4, 1944 in Somerville, Mass., and died Thursday, Aug. 23, 2012. She moved to Fruitland Park in 2003 from Dunnellon. She was a Baptist and a homemaker and enjoyed reading, knitting and crocheting, baking, going to church and spending time with her family. She is survived by her son, Bill A. (Leanna) Wisnosky of West Paris, Maine; three daughters, Debbe (Jim) Dugan of Dunnellon, Pamela (David) Malloy of Fruitland Park and Allison (John) Terry of Ocala; two brothers, Robert Batchelder of Manchester, N.H. and Tracy (Penny) Batchelder of Pepperell, Mass.; two sisters, Patti Sue (Bill) LaFleur of Hinsdale, N.H. and Phoebe (Bud) Hodge of Wilton, N.H. and nine grandchildren Services were on Friday, Aug. 24, 2012 at Grace Bible Baptist Church, Leesburg.

If these politicians are so all fired up about fixing problems, I would like to show them our plumbing problem. Of course, what my good wife does not realize is politicians can only fix hypothetical problems not real ones. And the more hypothetical the more eloquent they are in their speeches about it. Whenever you hear a politician waxing eloquent in his speech you always know you are listening to an airbag. It was my turn to astonish my wife. I have solved the mystery of picking the president of the United States, I said rather arrogantly. I was waiting for her response. And I did not have to wait long. You what? Then I laid out for her my scheme for picking the president. Its very simple. People pick a president about the same way they pick their nose. I knew from her astonished look I would have to explain what I meant. But it is true, nevertheless, picking a president is like picking your nose. The first thing is that nobody gets to select the nose they will have for the rest of their life unless of course they submit to plastic surgery. I have seen some noses that if it were mine, it would not be mine for long. We may owe plastic surgeons quite a lot for saving the on looking public the excruciating pain of looking at ugly noses. It is the same way nobody gets to choose the list of potential presidents they will have to decide on in the upcoming election. We all have to learn to live with the one or the other that has been given. Sad to say, in both areas, most of us have truly blown it. In this area of picking, some do it openly and unashamedly. They do not care who sees them or hears them for that matter. They firmly believe as Americans they have the constitutional right to do this plainly and blatantly. Of course, there are always those who deny they even have a nose let alone stooping to picking it in public. Some things, according to them, are better done in private, behind closed doors. Whoever invented closed doors has probably done society more benefit than any other invention. I must admit with some people it is quite hard to ignore the fact that they have a nose. It is the most prominent feature of his or her face but everybody has the right to live in the wonderful land of denial. Then I come to the more technical aspects of this matter of picking. Some prefer the left over the right while others prefer the right over the left. Then of course there are those who do both at the same time confusing everybody watching them. It is very confusing talking with these people because one time they are on one side and the next time they are on the other side. I know both sides are equally significant but I hate being confused. These, I think, would be called equal opportunity pickers. They do not prefer one side to the other but both sides, in their opinion, is good. It is hard to argue with logic like that. It is the same kind of logic that your wife uses when she asked you, Does this dress make me look fat? No matter if you are picking the president of the United States or your nose, you always end up with the same thing. There is only one selecting process that is devoid of any frustration at all. Jesus mentioned it, Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. (John 15:16 KJV). Gods choice has eternal ramifications.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P.O. Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

The amateur Mixed Martial Arts fighter has won his past two bouts. More importantly the 2009 Dunnellon High School graduate can now add champion to his resume. Leone won the Florida Light Heavyweight Kickboxing title Saturday night at the Dynamic Fighting Championship at the International Palm Resort in Orlando, taking out his opponent with a first round TKO (technical knock out) in the co-main event, which was slated for five rounds. I am enjoying myself, Im pretty excited, he said, explaining his recorded the lone knockout during the nights card. It was cool. Leone said hed watched plenty of video on his opponent, expecting his competitor to fare well. He seemed like he could take some good shots, Leone said. I wasnt expecting a knockout that soon. After having six months off prior to his past two bouts, Leone said climbing back in the ring so quickly after his fight earlier this month seemed to pay dividends. I felt calmer out there, I just felt comfortable out there, he said. Leone said going into someSpecial to the Riverland NewsTony Leone poses with his title belt after a decisive first-round victory. Tigers aim to roll in opener Now the real test for the Dunnellon High School football team begins. The Tigers open their regular-season schedule at 7:30 p.m. Friday against Ocala West Port, a game which Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley called a big game. Theyre really athletic, theyve got great skills players, Beasley said, noting Wolfpack quarterback Kalen Woodyard can throw the ball well and running back Will Sims is a solid ball carrier. They are tough to defend. They run and pass pretty well. West Port is coming off a 133 preseason victory against Belleview in which the Wolfpack were plagued by turnovers. West Port fumbled twice, once inside the Rattlers 3-yard line. However, Beasley explained that his biggest concern is shutting down the Wolfpacks high-octane offense and keeping their playmakers off the field. We just need to control the clock and grind it out, he explained. Obviously, we cannot turn the ball over. Hopefully, we can move the chains and get some first downs and get it down in the red zone and score. Scoring didnt seem to be a major problem for the Tigers last Friday in their 33-23 victory against Lecanto. Dunnellons varsity squad found the end zone four times in three quarters of action before sitting out the final quarter of action to allow the junior varsity squad the chance to garner some game experience. Despite his teams ability to score, Beasley said the overall feeling among the coaching staff and team wasnt rave reviews. We werent real happy with the execution of our passing game, he explained, despite quarterback Jordon Boleys four-touchdown performance against the Panther. It just wasnt where wed like it to be. We had some drops, some bad routes. We have a long ways to go before weve got our passing game where we want it to be. Defensively, Beasley was happy with his line, which he said really after their quarterback pretty good, evidenced by the five sacks, forced fumble and fumble recovery. We missed some tackles, gave up two big plays, Beasley said. We dont normally miss too many tackles. We need to get better play from linebackers. Penalties were a problem for the Tigers varsity squad against Lecanto as Dunnellon was flagged 14 times. It effected us everywhere, Beasley said. You start worrying about getting a penalty, instead of focusing on the play, which is good for us to some adversity. Weve got to learn how to deal with some adversity and rally the troops. We have to find a way to get through it. But we cannot let officials dictate the pace of the game. Some of it starts at the top with me. Well get better at that. JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon tight end Connor Wentz dives for the end zone on a first-quarter touchdown reception. The seniors 13-yard scoring grab from quarterback Joron Boley put the Tigers on the scoreboard first, giving Dunnellon an early 7-0 lead. Wentz would later set up Boleys 2-yard touchdown run in the third quarter with a 24-yard reception. Dunnellon will host West Port Friday in season opener for both teams Dunnellon stymies Panthers in Fall Classic, 33-23 QB Boley has four-TD performanceThe 2012 high school football season is now a matter of a day away, which means it is time for the Dunnellon High School football squad to be out on the field. After their long preparations of practicing all year for the upcoming season, it was time to put the Tigers to the test to see if practice has paid off. Dunnellon High School hosted its annual preseason game Friday against Lecanto High School at the Ned Love Field. Lecanto was much more improved since the last time I saw them in early spring, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley. They were a good team to play. This game allowed both teams concentrate on the strengths and weaknesses for the upcoming year. The varsity squad played the first three quarters while the junior varsity competed in the final quarter. For the Tigers, however, the cat fight turned in their favor, 33-23. Penalites 28 flags were thrown throughout the game, made the clock drag on.

RECORDS: Season opener for both teams. West Port knocked off Belleview, 13-3, in its preseason tune-up while Dunnellon outlasted Lecanto, 33-23, in its annual Fall Classic. WHO TO WATCH: Dunnellon QB Jordon Boley factored into all four touchdowns for the Tigers against Lecanto. The senior signal-caller threw for two scores, one each to TE Connor Wentz and WR Andrew Jackson. Boley also ran for two more scores. Wentz set up Boleys second TD, a late third-quarter score to put the game out of reach after the Panthers closed to within 20-17.

get into a rhythm when you are getting all those flags, Beasley said. It got in our heads but I believe we overcame it a little. With the ball starting in Lecantos favor, junior quarterback Christian Barber missed the handoff and fumbled the ball, allowing junior Keiwan Jones to recover. Dunnellon managed to get the ball down the field, and brought in the first touchdown of the game. Inside the 40-yard line and 10 minutes remaining in the first quarter, senior quarterback Jordan Boley threw a 13yard pass to senior Conner Wentz, who converted the pass for a touchdown putting the Tigers ahead 7-0 after the point after. Lecanto again struggled to get the ball down the field, but did cut the Tigers lead to 7-3 with a 27-yard field goal. Dunnellon did not react to this well, looking for the points back the Tigers converted another possession for a touchdown after Boley faked the handoff and ran left side for a 36-yard scamper for the Tigers. After the extra point, the Tigers led 14-3. Both teams failed to move the ball down the field as half time arrived. With 6:52 remaining in the third quarter, senior Andre Jackson pulled in a 40-yard touchdown after receiving the pass from Boley. The pass that Jordan threw to Andre was the definite game changer and it was one of the best plays of the night, Beasley said. Looking for a comeback after making several first-and10s, Lecanto scored its first touchdown when Ricky Marcic dragged in a 22-yard reception from Barber to cut Dunnellons lead to 14-10. Lecanto struck again with another 19-yard reception hauled in by Austin Stephens with 1:33 left in the third quarter. Dunnellon took the bull by the horns and with 3rd-and-14 on the Panthers 46-yard line Wentz hauled in a pass from Boley, setting up a 2-yard scoring run for the senior signal caller. It capped the scoring for each varsity team and gave the Tigers a 27-17 lead entering the fourth quarter. Though the contest wasnt over, it gave the junior varsity team a chance to shine. Sophomore quarterback Chase Brattin passed the ball to Sophomore Justin Hamm, who ran right side for a 20yard touchdown for the Tigers. The Lecanto JV then took action as sophomore TeAndre Hopkins ran in a touchdown with 20 seconds left in the game to cap the scoring at 3323. We did miss some tackles, but that will improve throughout the year, Beasley said, noting Jvonn Swoll, Dana Washington, Keiwan Jones and Cody Ingalls really stood out that night. Our offense line did well and our running backs did their job, he continued. Even though it was an intense game it only makes us better. The Dunnellon JV squad will play at 6:30 p.m. today at West Port. The varsity team will play at 7:30 p.m. Friday against West Port at Ned Love Field in the season-opener for both teams.Riverland News, Thursday, August 30, 2012 11 000CGEK Y o u r H o m e t o w n F i s h M a r k e t S i m p l y S e a f o o d LLC 12149 S.

It was cool going into someones house and winning in exciting fashion, he explained, noting he had just six fans his family in attendance. When he came out, the whole place went crazy. When I knocked him down the first time, the whole crowd was silent. When I dropped him again 15 seconds later, the fans were going crazy. The crowd was really great, very hospitable, too. Leone said he didnt train much differently than his past fights, with the lone exception he of spending time working at a Crystal River-based gym. I just prepared the way I always do, he said. I just worked a little more on my strength base, I just didnt do the grappling and stuff. I spent much more time in the kick boxing work and more time working on my stand up stuff. Leone was back in the gym as of Tuesday morning, hopeful for another fight to be lined up quickly. He said in all most likelihood, hell be back in the ring within four to six weeks, but explained if his managers can line up a fight sooner, hes more than OK with it. I just want to keep getting better every day, keep building my resume and a collect a few more belts, he said. Leone said the amateur championships make a big difference on a fighters resume, because it shows theyre a contender. He believes the more titles he can collect in the coming months, the more it could help him land a professional contract. I solidified my accomplishments, Leone explained. Im not just another amateur out there. Im a title holder. It solidifies all of my hard work. It gives me more opportunities. If I can add a few more belts, it could lead to a pro fight. If I didnt have any belts and some wishy-washy record, theyre going to look elsewhere. However, if I come in with some standing, people are going to want to see me fight more.

no one. The sad part is most Americans pick their president by who has the best commercials. He who lies best, wins. I get angry and sad because we are going nowhere fast. When I grew up one of the first things you learned in school was compromise. Now its a dirty word. From sports, to religion, to politics it has become Us against Them. We are no longer the United States. We are the divided minds. For every welfare cheat a Republican brings to the table, a Democrat can go head to head with some corporate giant who doesnt pay his share of taxes. The middle class gets it from both ends. Soon there will only be the poor and the wealthy. You know who I am disgusted with the most? Me! And you! Yes, you, too. We do nothing. Why arent we protesting, rioting, doing something? Why arent we mad as hell and were not going to take it anymore? Why do we sit on our butts and do nothing while the politicians burn down Rome? We, the American taxpayer, used to have sole ownership of the politician that was voted into office. Now special interest groups own the candidate. Why do we bother to vote? The one with the most money wins. Just tell us who are next president is going to be and we can all go on with our lives. I used to have faith in the process. I lost all faith when the Supreme court opened the floodgates and said money and power were more important than my vote. I told my Facebook friends and family that I would be unsubscribing anyone who posts political commentary, until after the elections. I want one part of my life to be a political-free zone. Like the kid in the sock commercial says I am sick of it. Yeah, just sick of it!12 Riverland News, Thursday, August 30, 2012 465-3200 20559 Chestnut St., Dunnellon OPEN: Wed. thru Sat.

The developers will get what they want, when they want it. Present city officials are on a course to grow this city's payroll, debt burden and operational cost to unsustainable levels. The only ones who benefit from the actions of this management are the city manager, employees and outside developers. You would surmise that when the average city worker salary and benefits far exceed the average Dunnellon resident, the residents would be rightfully concerned. Dunnellon is on a course of economic chaos. I know that some mistakenly believe that Rainbow Springs residents want to run the city. Believe me, we all wish Rainbow Springs was in no way involved in city business. Rainbow Springs was hijacked into the sorry financial mess of this poorly run city via the utility purchase. Basically, we are in the sad situation of being unfortunate enough to live within 5 miles of Dunnellon, which seems intent on committing economic ruin. Dunnellon has the highest tax rate, utility rates and operating cost in Marion County. Traffic light cameras, Greenlight, annexing future liabilities and bad management are the legacy of the present city manager. To Woodland and Forest residents, you will be connected to the Dunnellon Utility system probably sooner than later. The county has the power to compel you to connect to an available utility plant. To Dunnellon residents, your city is drowning in debt and being mismanaged, it is up to up to save your city. We all need to work together to save Dunnellon. Steve Swett is an 18year Rainbow Springs resident and retired Dunnellon Postmaster. SMILE continued from page 4 hearted. I hope he never changes. My granddaughter rolled her eyes and told me not to embarrass her at the bus stop. Some things I wish had never changed. Yet, here they are another year older. James is going into second grade and Dominique the eighth grade. Next year shell be in high school and I dont even want to think about that. She was a little girl a week ago. Last year, I was bringing them to and from school. I will miss that time with them now that Im back to work. Its a perfect opportunity to talk and find out whats going on in their lives. Especially when you pick them up, they have so much to say. I just hope they both have a great year. I hope they have good teachers and form some true friendships. I have no doubts they will both shine. They will amaze a few people, and they will make their Nanaw so very proud.
