Water and sewer rates are going up, but slightly less than what officials expected a year ago, the Dunnellon City Council learned Monday at the first of two budget workshops. City Manager Lisa Algiere unveiled the budgets for both the citys enterprise funds water and sewer, as well as Greenlight Dunnellon Communications. However, the largest opposition was in regard to the another increase in water and sewer rates as called for in a Burton & Associates study the City Council adopted a year ago. That plan called for rate hikes across the board for the next five years. Algiere told the Council both areas wont see the 6.75 percent and 7.25 percent hikes called for in the plan; however, water rates will increase 5.75 percent and sewer fees will move upward to 6.25 percent, both 1 percentage point lower. She did point out that even though water rates are going up, residents will see a decrease in their water bill. According to the study, those who use 4,000 gallons or less will pay $1.42 per 1,000 gallons of water compared to the current rate of $1.85; users consuming 8,000 gallons or less will pay $2.83 compared to the current rate of $4.02; the rate Man, 56, faces DUI, drug charges Report: Man had cocaine A 56-year-old Dunnellon man faces four charges, including possession of cocaine, less than 28 grams, and driving under the influence, according to police reports. A Dunnellon Police Department report stated Dwight Maxwell was charged Friday with possession of cocaine, less than 28 grams, driving under the influence, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and possession of drug paraphernalia. All told, his bond was set at $11,000. According to the report, Maxwell was driving along U.S. 41 when he failed to move and nearly struck Officer Adam Robinson while he was on an unrelated traffic stop. Maxwell did not initially stop his vehicle and traveled approximately 300 yards before stopping. The report stated after Sgt. Jacob Gonzalez made contact with Maxwell, he observed him to have bloodshot watery eyes, slow speech and constricted pupils. Also, in plain view, Robinson had a converted beer can, which is used to smoke crack cocaine. Sgt. Gonzalez asked the defendant to exit the vehicle and detected the odor of alcoholic beverages emanating from his body. Maxwell was asked if he would participate in field sobriety exercises and he stated yes. On a high note Photos by JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsJacob Furr, far right, marches during opening kick off festivities when the band goes from the outline of the State of Florida to prepare for the players running out. Yvonne Jones poses with grandson, 2-year-old Adin, while visiting the beach. Jones is scheduled for a lung transplant once she can raise money for a shortterm stay in Jacksonville. Local woman, 56, hopes for fresh breath of life Yvonne Jones has always been a strong woman with a zest for life. The 57-year-old mother of three and grandmother to four boys, Jones always appreciated small-town life, having grown up in the South Georgia area of Albany and Leesburg. Jones and her husband of 30 years moved to Dunnellon seven years ago when Tom accepted a job in Ocala. Her daughter, Melissa, said they chose Dunnellon because it offers a small hometown feeling that we come from in Leesburg, Ga. Jones 8year-old grandson competes in Dunnellon Little League. Everyone knows that when they see my son, they will also see my parents, Melissa explained. They are very involved with his baseball. Yet it was 2005 when Yvonnes life really changed. She was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, which occurs when lung tissue becomes damaged and scarred. This thickened, stiff tissue makes it more difficult for the lungs to work properly. As pulmonary fibrosis worsens, you become progressively more short of breath. So when the Joneses relocated to Dunnellon, Yvonne Jones awaits lung transplants See CHARGES page 3 JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Dwight Maxwell DHS grad lands coveted spot on Gator Marching Band Its great to be a Florida Gator! is the chant of many Floridians who cheer on the University of Florida. Jacob Furr is a new member to the University of Floridas marching band. The 2012 Dunnellon High School graduate made his debut Saturday, Sept. 1, when the Gators played host to Bowling Green. It is completely mind blowing, Furr said of the experience. When youre all cramped up in the tunnel and the drums are beating and youre marching really fast you get all pumped, then you burst out of the tunnel and take the field and you realize youre the focal point of thousands of people, its just awesome. I was a little nervous, but its my job to play and you gotta do what you gotta do. They told us beforehand to not stare in awe at the Jumbotron and above all else, focus on the marching if youre too excited to play. Earning a coveted spot on the marching band roster was a long, arduous task. Furr was emailed the three most famous songs from the University of Florida Orange and Blue, We are the Boys and the Alma Mater. He had to learn and record those, the 12 major scales and the full range chromatic scale. I only had trouble with the Orange and Blue because it has some difficult runs and is kind of fast, Furr explained. Also, I had to learn most of the scales because last year we only went over five. Furr then submitted his recordings via email July 27, receiving a You are in response the following day. I was really surprised that the response came back as quick as it did, Furr said. Furr had to fill out a lot of paperwork as an undergraduate nondegree-seeking student because he is currently a student at AMANDA BARNEY For the Riverland News Furr flashes a peace sign as the band makes its way to the stadium.

Rainbow Springs Country Club Bridge Results from Sept. 4: Winners: 1. Millie Morales, 5,910; 2. Luise Pellett, 5,230; 3. Sandra Leaper, 4,859. Slams: Luise Pellett and Marilyn Holsipple, 6 S made 7. Santa Fe College. Furr participated in the Dunnellon High School band, playing several instruments such as guitar and saxophone. He was the groups Drum Major his senior year. When I first started thinking about the band I wasnt too excited, Furr said. Ive been playing in the band so long I kind of wanted a break. According to Furr, when he got accepted he thought about it and the more he realized it, its a whole bunch of new opportunities and he will be challenged and encouraged. Performing a new halftime show each game is a big difference from his previous band experiences. Furr is sure that he will be playing mostly, if not only, the saxophone, because that is what he did the recordings with. Furr exclaimed that if he had the opportunity to try something else for a bit, he would do it. Furrs grandparents, Nick and Joanne Mancini, have season tickets and go to all of the Gator games. Overall, Im just happy that I will be challenged and have the opportunity to succeed, Furr said. Im also looking forward to maybe making some new friends. Yvonne, who had long since retired from her career working in factories and the pest control business, decided it was time to follow a lifelong dream of obtaining a college degree, Melissa said. In 2010, she became the first college graduate in her family when she completed her studies at Daytona State College. She has motivated me and showed me that it doesnt matter what obstacle you are faced with, if you put your mind to it, anything is possible, Melissa said. Yvonne now holds an AAS in Occupational Therapy Assistance, but her latest career has been derailed due to an illness, one where every breath she takes might be her last. Her condition worsened after a bout with bilateral phenomena, which forced her to go on oxygen /7. Now, she is facing her toughest test yet a lung transplant. I thought I was dying right then, she said when her condition worsened in 2010 and 2011. Everything I have ever read, gave me a short life span. Then I was told I really am critically ill. It just slapped me. The cost of the lifesaving surgery will be covered by her insurance company. Her medical insurance will cover a bulk of the cost of the antirejection and 14 other medications she must take for the remainder of her life. Yvonne, who is being treated at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, must stay in the area for three to six months after the transplant. The insurance company wont cover those costs, so now shes focused on raising the funds necessary for a short-term stay in Jacksonville. Youve got to be there every day afterwards for tests, for physical therapy for numerous things, she explained. She hopes to have the necessary expenses covered by December and be ready to move to Jacksonville in the first part of 2013. Id like to have it all done within the end of the year, she said. Im like a ticking time bomb. Ive already exceeded the lifespan I should have had, but hopefully, by December we have all of the money we need raised. The Jones family will host Lollipop 4 Lungs Oct. 27 in the Walmart parking lot. They will exchange lollipops for donations. Jones family is also chronicling her plight on the Facebook page Loving Lungs 4 Yvonne. She has been such a motivation to me and my family and she is truly our rock, Melissa said. She is stubborn and faces each obstacle as a challenge. I truly believe she will have a long, fulfilled life once she receives the transplant. I have such a loving family, its easy to remain positive around my family, Yvonne said. I keep convincing myself Im too young to have this and take one day at a time. I look toward tomorrow. So once she receives a fresh breath, what will Yvonne do first? Give back to the community, volunteer, do whatever I can to help someone else out, she said. Levy County Emergency Management Director Mark Johnson, a well-known musician, is the third annual recipient of the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass. Along with a plaque, Johnson receives a $50,000 check, a sculpture by artist Eric Fischi and he will perform with Martin on the Late Show with David Letterman on Sept. 26. The award is bestowed by the Steve Martin foundation. Martin, best known as a comedian, is also an award-winning bluegrass musician and plays a Deering Clawgrass Banjo named after Johnsons style of bluegrass. Johnson, who records with Emory Lester, a mandolin and guitar musician, has championed the Clawgrass style of banjo play. Johnson said he was stunned to receive the award. He was at home earlier this week when the FedEx truck pulled in to deliver the package containing the award. Johnson, who is in his busy season as emergency management director, said he is worried about leaving the county for a few days to rehearse and perform with Martin on the Letterman show. But it is an opportunity to put forth the Levy County name on a popular TV program, he said. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, September 13, 2012 000CK4H 1 1 3 7 1 N W i l l i a m s S t 1 1 3 7 1 N W i l l i a m s S t 11371 N.

According to the report, prior to starting the exercises, Maxwell told authorities he did not have any injuries or disabilities that would prevent him from doing the exercises. The report stated this about Maxwells results: Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus Exercise: Maxwell had bloodshot watery eyes, constricted pupils and Maxwell was unable to follow the stimulus at times. Walk and Turn Exercise: Maxwell lost his balance during the instructions, attempted to begin prior to being told to do so, stopped on each step forward (taking 10 steps, one more than instructed), failed to turn around and walk back, until being reminded to do so, made an improper turn and took 11 steps back (two more than instructed). Finger to Nose Exercise: Maxwell failed to follow the instructions by keeping his finger on his nose at all times. He failed to use the tip of his finger on each attempt. He failed to touch the tip of his nose on each attempt and he used the wrong hand on two attempts (five right and six left). Romberg Balance Exercise: Maxwell didnt follow instructions by opening his eyes twice and estimated the passage of 30 seconds in 47 seconds. According to the report, after Maxwell was charged with driving under the influence, a piece of crack cocaine was found on the rear floorboard where the converted beer can used to smoke crack cocaine was located. Two Hydrocodone pills wrapped in a paper towel were also discovered under the dashboard mat on the passenger side of the vehicle. The report stated, post Miranda, Maxwell told authorities he didnt know where the crack cocaine and paraphernalia came from and added that a girl lost the pills in his vehicle, but he looked for them and couldnt find them. Maxwell was transported to the Marion County Jail, where he refused to the lawful test of his breath and urine for the purpose of determining its alcohol and/or controlled substance content.

River views Is everyone living in Never Never Land?We have refrained from writing letters to the editor up until now, because the people of this community have done a thorough job of explaining the pitfalls of our water/sewer situation; however, we feel compelled to ask the Editor about notes at the end or two different letters in todays paper. No. 1 letter from Mr. Birdsall: Editors Note: The projects listed on the Water Plan are not going to be done all at once; they will be completed on an as-needed basis when funds are available. Comments: The projects will not be done all at once was also stated by Mayor Ward, but why should we believe anything Mayor Ward says? His track record is not a display of professionalism or sound decision-making Regarding your note that the projects will be completed on an as-needed basis when funds are available. Just when will funds be available? Funds are not available for the existing debt that the city has incurred and because they are not making payments on current indebtedness, the flagrant remark that as funds are available tells me that those needs will not be taken care of for many, many years. Are you, as Editor, simply repeating the Mayors statement? Or are you, too, in Never, Never Land. No. 2 Letter, from Ms. Taubert: You may be correct with your statement that the city is not giving out raises to its employees this year; however, you should have mentioned that the city is lowering its tax base to residents. If memory serves me, that too will reduce the citys income. Why would they deliberately reduce their income while their debts are still in arrears, with no other income forthcoming to meet those debt payments? Oh yes, I forgot. Those roof-tops to the north will help. That thought is also in Never-Never Land. Penny and Sam Calloway Rainbow Springs Fears for rezoning simply not conveyed in letter to paperRe: Dr Lumapas rezoning on county road 484 Mary Hackers letter in last weeks Riverland News was interesting to say the least. Im not sure if the rezoning is for a medical office or a strip bar. Get real. What medical office has people who play loud music, expose themselves, hang out and tease your pets? If youre retiring in 2013, prepare now H ave you been car shopping lately? Its not a fun experience. House prices have come way down; car prices have not. Its crazy. Even the smallest, cheapest car can still run you almost $20,000, and car payments are now the size of mortgage payments. Unless youre living in your car, this makes no sense. It always seems to be the hottest day of the year with no breeze blowing when youre wandering around the car lot. Theres always a slick, well-dressed salesperson at your beck and call, even when not needed. Oh yes, Mr. Salesman says, I can definitely get you into that new car. Dont even worry about the price. Dont you just love when they step inside for a few minutes to talk to their boss and they leave you hanging? My mother says thats when they go for a coffee break. Many times, after spending the whole day shopping, you still come home with the same ride you left in. A good friend of mine has been out almost every day this week, but still nothing. Now Im sure there are great car sales people out there, but my experiences have not been good ones. The only time I bought a car in less time than it took to eat dinner was when I bought my Cadillac CTS, and I loved that car. It did everything, but shop for you. However, with the Cadillac brand comes the Cadillac prices. Even the windshield wipers cost $84, but I do hope to own one again someday. When we arrived home from our trip to Tennessee, my husband noticed my Saturn was acting funny. Its time to trade this one in, he announced. I would rather go in for a root canal. After asking me several times if I was ready to go car shopping and me always answering in the negative, he took matters into his own hands. Russell did all the legwork, research and shopping online. He actually spent a couple of weeks checking out every make and model. By the time he told me about it, the deal was done. I owned a new car that Id never even seen. Now thats having a lot of trust in ones partner. All I had to do was look over the papers and sign them. We are now the proud owners of a brand new Kia Soul. Russell learned they are one of the top rated cars, with an outstanding warranty package, valuable safety features, and it also gets more than 30 miles to the gallon. What a cute car, too. Im enjoying it more and more each day. I Mamas got Soul The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

With the rain we have had, things are growing nicely although some of my vegetables have been bashed to the ground by the really heavy rain we had. Plants are busy growing, but the flowers have just about done on my perennials. I have recently planted some new herbs that can tolerate the warmer early fall temperatures, and these seem to be thriving. Mint, tarragon (Mexican), rosemary and basil are good to plant at this early stage of September. It is also time to plant beans, beets, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, Chinese cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, collards, cucumbers, eggplants, escarole, kale, lettuce, mustard, onion sets, peas, peppers, radishes, romaine, rutabagas, spinach, squash, strawberries, sweet corn, Swiss chard, tomatoes and turnips. Many of these vegetables need the cooler weather and even a frost to grow, and develop a taste. It may be worth starting seed in trays or pots to plant out later while the beds are made ready. Make sure that if you have poor soil to put back some organic matter, and work into the area you want to use. I recently cleaned out my chickens and piled all the old hay and muck into a long pile. This will be used for various vegetables. If you want a faster start, then it may be worth buying small plants from stores, but seeds are still the cheapest way. Keep an eye on lawns for insect damage. Chinch bugs, webworms and mole crickets are still active during September. If you have perennials in your garden, now is the time to lift these and divide to make new plants. If the clump is looking too large or simply tired, then gently lift the plant, divide by breaking up or cutting and replant the clumps in your new chosen spots. Make sure to water the new plantings regularly to help settle and establish. Now is the time to plant firebush, russelia and other perennials to ensure growth for next spring and summer. This is the time to prune poinsettias especially if you want a nice show for the holidays. Remove small spindly branches to encourage good growth. Watch for hornworms as the new growth comes through. Enjoy this time as the fall arrives Email Tracy Jenner, the Riverland Gardener, at tracyjenner@aol.com.

have realized a 5-foottall woman needs a Crossover or SUV, so I can sit up high and actually see over the dashboard. I enjoy driving again. This is the car with the rapping hamsters. Now I know why they appear to be having so much fun. I do get it now. Im a middle-class American who can afford a Kia Soul. I realize Im not driving a Cadillac anymore, but this car and this ad encourage me not to care. This hamster ad makes me want to drive long distances with the music blaring, as I wave my hands up in the air. Middle-class has never been hipper or more fun. You can get with this, or you can get with that. Just call me Soul Mama in her new pimpmobile, and then get out of my way. Audrey Beem, The Jersey Girl, can be reached via email at abeemer22 @att.net. I have worked in medical offices for many years now retired and I am a patient of Dr. Lumapas. Never have I seen any of the behavior described in that letter. Since you are worried, I promise, to keep all my clothes on until I am safely in an exam room, save all my specimens for the laboratory and keep my radio volume down. Since I dont hang out long after an appointment, it should not be a worry either. I love animals, so I wont harass your dogs. In other words, I think your fears are unfounded and you must have a better reason to oppose the rezoning. Janet Amos Dunnellon Kudos to city for creating a bike trail I want to thank the city for building a bike trail in Dunnellon. Now my family will not have to go to the Citrus County Bike Trail. The bike trail there does not have water or restrooms. I think that a good idea would be for the city to build a public restroom and sell bottled water. The money from the water could help pay for the bike trail. I think it would be good to build a pool for visitors to use, maybe near the bike trail. I hope that the cars will be careful if they are near the bikers. It is nice for a city to build something that all of us can enjoy even if you live somewhere else. Linda Rodriguez Dunnellon Friends of the Library thank community againThank you for supporting the Friends Book Stores August sale. Our objectives have been reached in that we were able to decrease our inventory while continuing to accept new and beautiful gently read book donations. Thanks to this community we are able to change our book inventory almost daily with something for everyone in all categories. We have Volunteer Choice Sales daily and are always surprised at what our volunteers decide to put on sale. We can use your ideas on what authors you would like to see as a sale item. All proceeds from the book store, membership fees and other fundraisers are for the benefit of your Dunnellon Library. We are a 100 percent volunteer organization using these funds to provide materials and equipment for our library that are not in the countys budget, such as sponsoring Childrens Programs, Free Author Programs and so much more. Most importantly our greatest commitment is $2,500 a month toward a book endowment, which we will continue as long as possible with the help of this generous and literate community.

FREE HEARING TEST LETTERS continued from page 4 JERSEY continued from page 4 SOCIAL SECURITY QUESTIONS & ANSWERSQuestion: What can I do to protect myself against identity theft? Answer: First, dont carry your Social Security card in your wallet. Keep it at home with your other important papers. Second, avoid giving out your Social Security number. While many banks, schools, doctors, landlords, and others will request your number, it is your decision whether to provide it. Ask if there is some other way to identify you in their records. To report identity theft, fraud, or misuse of your Social Security number, the Federal Trade Commission, the nations consumer protection agency, recommends you: Place a fraud alert on your credit file by contacting one of the following companies (the company you contact is required to contact the other two, which will then place alerts on your reports): Equifax, 800-525-6285; Trans Union, 800-6807289; or Experian, 888397-3742. Review your credit report for inquiries from companies you have not contacted, accounts you did not open, and debts on your accounts you cannot explain; Close any accounts you know, or believe, have been tampered with or opened fraudulently; File a report with your local police or the police in the community where the identity theft took place; and File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877438-4338 (TTY 1-866653-4261). Question: Its hurricane season. If there is a big storm in my area, will I still be able to do business with Social Security? Answer: During an emergency, keep in mind two things. First, you can conduct most of your business with Social Security online at www.socialsecurity. gov. There, youll find a wealth of information and online services. For example, you can apply online for Social Security benefits or for Medicare, and then you can check on the status of your pending application. If youre already receiving Social Security benefits, you can go online to change your address, phone number, or your direct deposit information, get a replacement Medicare card, or request a proof of income letter. You even can get your Social Security Statement online. You also can find out if your local office is open by going online to www.socialsecurity. gov/emergency. That site lists any office closings and delays. Second, make sure you receive your benefits through Direct Deposit. While the mail can be disrupted during severe weather, Direct Deposit payments arrive in your account on time, all the time. Go to www.social security.gov/deposit to sign up or for more information. Question: Im retired and the only income I have is from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). Are my IRA withdrawals considered earnings? Could they reduce my monthly Social Security benefits? Answer: No. We count only the wages you earn from a job or your net profit if youre self-employed. Non-work income such as annuities, investment income, interest, capital gains, and other government benefits are not counted and will not affect your Social Security benefits. Most pensions will not affect your benefits either. However, your benefit may be affected by a government pension from work on which you did not pay Social Security tax.

Last week, the staff, students and parents pulled together to find a solution to declining enrollment. For the first in many years, the enrollment projections were not met at Romeo. Due to the funding issues in our county, we had to reduce our teaching staff. Ms. Tull and Ms. Jangdhari were transferred to Dunnellon Elementary. The students in their classes had to be distributed among the remaining teachers, so every class would have the correct number of students. This also meant that, Mrs. Markham and Mrs. Beck would need to change the grade levels they had been assigned, so that the school could meet the class-size mandates of the state legislature. The moves and changes are quite common in Marion County, but unusual in the Dunnellon area. We are sure that everyone will pull together to make this the best year ever for blazing new trails as Romeo Pioneers. Romeos own WPKN news show has started and our news staff for the week of Sept. 10 to 14 are: Amanda Swaney (Anchor 1), Morris Carver (Anchor 2), Barry Duncan (Pledge of Allegiance and School Pledge), Tiffany Clarke (Weather), Austin Coomer (Camera 1), Madison Miguel (Camera 2), Parker Whitmore (mixer), Gabby Bass (sound), Zariah Parks (Computer) and Kaylie Rodriguez (Script). We look forward to an award-winning year in our video productions. Our third-, fourthand fifthgraders were scheduled to take a District Demand Writing, test Sept. 6. Due to the class changes mandated by the state requirements on class size, the test has been rescheduled for Sept. 27 with the kindergarten, firstand second-grade students. The Romeo Elementary SAC meeting has been changed to Sept. 17 due to conflicting administrative meetings. The meeting will be at 2:30 p.m. in the Media Center.

for 12,000 gallons or less will be $4.25 compared to the rate of $6.63; and those using 20,000 gallons or less will pay $6.16 as opposed to the current fee of $10.61. Irrigation users are also catching a break on their water bills, because the city is charging them the same residential rates as opposed to a larger rate some municipalities charge. Algiere explained in brief detail that a current water user consuming 3,000 gallons and using the sewer system will pay $52.64 per year, up $6.54 from the current figure. According to the study completed by Burton & Associates, 63.4 percent of utility customers citywide use 3,000 gallons or less. The study also showed that Rainbow Springs residents using 3,000 gallons or less will pay $55.93, up $10.02 from last years fee of $49.61. Algiere said that includes the 5 percent incremental increase from 80 percent of the citys base rate to 85 percent plus the 25 percent surcharge. Several key reasons for the smaller increases across the board for the citys utility users were the acquisitions of the Rio Vista, Juliette Falls and Rainbow Springs systems in the past year, according to the Water & Sewer Revenue Sufficiency and Rate Structure Analysis completed by Burton & Associates. Increased customer base and realized some economies of scale, the report stated. All told, the citys water enterprise fund budget is jumping from $752,593 a year ago to $4,178,333, an increase of 455.2 percent. Revenues are up 240 percent from $389,125 to $1,322,868. The citys sewer enterprise fund budget is jumping 62.4 percent, from $2,030,870 in 2012 to 3,298,180 for the proposed Fiscal Year 2013. According to the proposed budget, revenues are increasing 349.8 percent, from $351,035 last year to $1,578,830 this upcoming Fiscal Year if the Council approves the final budget at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 24. Among the capital improvements, according to the report, slated for Fiscal Year 2013 include: Water Main and Service Line Replacement Program $2.6 million Utility Extensions and Interconnects $2.5 million Fire Hydrant Program $2.3 million Sewer Line Replacement $1.5 million New Water Treatment Plant, East of City $1.1 million Meter Replacement Program $750,000. SCADA System $700,000. Lift Station Improvements $500,000. Both budget proposals drew criticism from a handful of residents and a large contingency of Rainbow Springs residents still seething from the citys purchase of Rainbow Springs Utility in late December 2011. How can you approve this? Rainbow Springs resident Joan Duggins asked. Who are you kidding? Why so much need to repair? Its no secret youve concerned about your own system for quite some time. Duggins said it didnt matter what she or anyone else had to say about rates increasing. Those rates are already a done deal, she said. Doc Andrews, a resident of Dunnellon Mobile Home Park, said more increases will just make it harder on elderly citizens who live on a fixed budget. He pointed out the 125 residents at Dunnellon Mobile Home Park have seen their rent increased $26 per month. Andrews pointed out thats everyone, which equals $40,000-plus less those folks have to spend on doctors visits, medications and businesses throughout town. You should run this city as we run our homes; if we dont have the money for it, we dont spend it, he explained. Resident Dean Jimmie Dean Flore questioned why his sewer bill is 75 percent more than his water bill. The Dunnellon Heights resident said for those shouting theres a lack of water pressure in the area isnt true. I have water pressure, he said. He said the city should focus on improving the road in the area. If you look at the road, its full of potholes; what a disgrace, Flore said. He told the Council it needs to curtail its spending. Enough is enough, Flore said. The budget for Greenlight Communications was also presented by Algiere. A year ago, Greenlight had a budget of $2,749,218, but is increasing to $4,693,599. The FY 2013 budget shows a projected revenue stream of $4,693,599 in the coming calendar year. Thus far, the citys lofty fiber to the home program has more than 800 registered residential and business users. The citys first bond payment of more than $1 million is scheduled to paid in November to Regions Bank in Orlando. Rainbow Springs resident Steve Swett questioned those figures, saying it would take 2,000 customers paying $200 a month to make that. How are you going to cover that debt? he asked. How will you pay the debt? The city will vote on a final budget at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 24. The budget must be approved before the new fiscal year begins Oct. 1.

Matthew 18:20 711180 0 0 0 C J R R New pastor takes helm at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church Father Jean Desire is on a journey that has led him to St. John the Baptist Catholic Community. Appointed as pastor Aug. 1, Father Desire has been given the task of guiding and uniting the English and Spanish-speaking congregations. Father Desire was transferred from St. Faustina Parish in Clermont, where he and the congregation raised more than $500,000 toward the building of a church. All journeys begin with a quest, he said. Quests begin with questions like, Who am I? How do I fit in with the rest of the world? What does God mean to me? What do I mean to Him? What does He want from me? Born in Limbe, Haiti, Father Desire began focusing on becoming a priest as a young child. The third of four children, he and his two brothers and sister, were raised primarily by their mother, Marlete Mondelus, after losing his father, Idevert Desir, at the age of 5. Raised in a devoutly Catholic home and neighborhood, Father Desire took notice of his mothers involvement in the Catholic Church. She participated in many church groups, like charismatic and choir and also took care of the priests vestments, he said. Her involvement in church has a tremendous and significant impact on me. At the age of 10, right after my First Communion, I became an altar server. It was at this point I heard my initial calling. Father Desire, who talked with his mother about every aspect of his life, told her about his being called by God. When things didnt seem to be OK with me, my mom was always there to give me comfort, support and love, he said. Whenever I was thrown into a valley of confusion and doubt, my mom was the one to bring me certitude and hope. She helped me identify the right voice, which was Gods voice.

was Gods voice telling me, Dont be afraid. Come and follow me. In August 1998 he was accepted as a seminarian by the Diocese of Orlando, entering the St. John Vianney Seminary so that he could complete his undergraduate degree. It was really a blessing, he said, noting in May 2000 he received his undergraduate degree in philosophy at St. John Vianney College Seminary before entering St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary in September 2000. He spent the next three years completing his theological formation. On May 8, 2003, the Bishop of Orlando Norbert M. Dorsey, CP, called him to order and he became a transitional deacon. On May 28, 2004, he was ordained a priest. Father Desires first assignment as a priest took him to St. Josephs Church in Palm Bay. He stayed there for a slightly more than three years before being transferred to Blessed Trinity in Ocala. Father Desire remained at Blessed Trinity for more than two years before getting what he terms as a surprise call from Bishop Wenske telling him he was taking over St. Faustina Parish with the mission of building a church. St. Faustina in itself is really a challenge for me as a new pastor, Father Desire explained. My biggest challenge is to unite the people and see that everyone works together even though they come from different family backgrounds with different tempers and ideologies.

Laura Riley Chase Reilly DHS ATHLETES OF THE WEEK PRESENTED BY GREENLIGHT DUNNELLON COMMUNICATIONS Cross country runners pacing themselves early Dunnellon High Schools cross country team is hitting the turf, warming up for its season, which began Wednesday, Sept. 12, with a meet at Lake Weir High School. Valerie Bazarte returns as boys head coach, with Michael Rumsey coaching the girls after the departure of coach Tracy Young. Rumsey has been coaching runners at the Dunnellon Middle for about six years. There are a lot of competitive runners on this years team, said Bazarte, who has more than a dozen boys attending practices. This is the largest group of boys I have had tryout and they have the ability to go to regionals as a team. The girls team has added a few runners. After Brittany Lakhani and Natalie Cote graduated, the only returning runner is junior Courtney Pike. Pike advanced last year, as did now-senior Victor Chicas, and the coaches have high expectations that these athletes will lead the team to great accomplishments. Coach Rumsey is a great coach who definitely will push us to do our best, he is very involved as a coach, which I think is going to make us better faster, Pike said. Chicas is looking forward to the season. Im always ready, he explained. Another promising athlete on the boys team is sophomore Kevin Hanson, who moved here last spring from Haiti. He is someone to definitely watch, said Bazarte. Team opened season Wednesday at Lake Weir Invite Victor Chicas Courtney Pike KAYLA McMANN For the Riverland News REBECCA FRECHETTE/For the Riverland NewsSteadying her breathing with a cloud of bubbles, junior Cierra Thompson, a returning swimmer, warms down after her last race on Sept. 6 against Lecanto. Dunnellon swim team small in numbers, big on heart During exciting or high-stress situations a hormone produced in the glands known as adrenaline is sent through the body. Many people find this to be a good feeling as associated with bungee jumping or even riding a roller coaster. For others, its the rush of diving off the block into the chilled water. Dunnellon High Schools swim team, made a splash Sept. 6 during their first meet, against Lecanto High School at the Jervey Gantt pool in Ocala. Were not a real big team, but we have some good quality swimmers, said Dunnellon coach Bruce Wentz, who noted this years team currently has a total of 10 swimmers. A quartet of last years swimmers graduated: Alex Love, Kenny Kruger, Alex Bunce and Alora Thompson. Now having just enough for a few relay teams, this is one close-knit family of athletes. But because of the small size of this team, it will be difficult for them to win meets points-wise, even though some of them will stand out individually or on relay teams. The goal is to bring most, if not all, of these athletes to compete beyond districts. Wentz said he believes he has a good chance of getting a number of his swimmers to state this year with all the hard work they have been outing in. One current standout is Chase Reilly, who competed in the 100-yard breaststroke, with a time of 1:20 and the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 2:23. Cierra Thompson, a junior and returning swimmer, competed in the 100-yard backstroke, 200-yard IM, 200-yard medley relay and 400-yard relay. My heart is still beating fast from all the adrenaline, Thompson said. REBECCA FRECHETTE For the Riverland News Volleyball line-up changes spark fire Just like every delicious recipe, a great team needs an immense amount of time, ingredients and determination to come out on top. Dunnellon volleyball coach Terry Weber is stirring up a few changes on the court. After a few weeks of observing every strength and weakness, a slightly different recipe has been developed. By making Lexie Forrester the new libero (back row only) and Jody Weber the new setter, a few small gaps on the court were able to be filled. I saw a lot of improvement with the line-up change, said Weber. We still have a few small things to fix on defense as well as service errors, but the girls are steadily improving. Last Thursday, the varsity and JV teams drove more than hour to play at Nature Coast High. At first, the Lady Tigers dominated the scoreboard, playing better than ever before. Jody Weber played impressively recording five kills, two aces, three tips and five assists. Lexie Forrester earned the team eight service points and six digs. Nicole Drew demonstrated improvement with her six aces, seven tips and three assists. But with Kayla McMann out for the week, the pack was lacking a key part. Unfortunately, they had only won one of the rounds played. The JV girls also lost. Against the Meadowbrook Mustangs on Sept. 5, the Lady Tigers won the first game 25-20 and lost the next two sets, 16-25 and 19-25. It was a rough night for the ladies. Forrester skid the ground hard and Oteros glasses were knocked off. As volleyball season continues on, the schedule keeps challenging the teams to find the time to practice, and practice harder they will. Although the coaches fear Homecoming week will prove to be a challenge, with three games at home Monday and Tuesday, and today at Tavares amid the scheduled activities. I just hope the distractions of the daily events dont cause the girls to lose focus, Weber said, noting the Lady Tigers opponents include Bradford, Crystal River and Tavares. AMANDA BARNEY For the Riverland News Dunnellon JV football clipped by Wildcats, 9-6 While the game started off slowly, the battle between the Dunnellon High School junior varsity football team and Forest High School proved to be a gripping early-season bout, a 96 setback for the Tigers. While Dunnellon managed to hold on to the ball for most of the first quarter, the Tigers offense couldnt solve the Wildcats defense, being stopped short of the end zone at the 4yard line. With the ball now in the Wildcats possession, the Tigers defense took the field, preventing the Forest offense from scoring. By the end of the first, the game remained scoreless. The second quarter began much like the first, with a lot of back and forth ball possession between Dunnellon and Forest. However, the pace began to pick up late into the quarter when the Wildcats fumbled the ball at their own 17-yard line. Dunnellons Leo Munford recovered, picking up 8 yards. The Tigers were able to keep up the momentum of their fumble recovery and managed to push all the way into the Wildcats end zone, scoring the first touchdown for a 6-0 lead. Instead of opting for the extra point kick, Dunnellon decided to attempt for a two-point conversion, which fell short. With only seconds remaining in the opening half, the Wildcats were determined not to go into halftime scoreless. After a few valiant attempts to force themselves into Dunnellons end zone, the Wildcats were unDREW RONDEAU For the Riverland News Tigers winless, fall to 0-2 with narrow loss to Forest High Dunnellon junior varsity quarterback Chase Brattin looks for an open receiver during the Tigers regular-season opener against West Port.

We have about two weeks to prepare ourselves before the district games begin, Beasley told his team in the postgame huddle. Forest wasted little time striking first, taking the lead, 7-0, on the Wildcats opening drive. Dunnellon had a response. Quarterback Jordan Boley found receiver Andre Jackson for a 32yard completion, setting up first-and-goal. Boley, a senior, capped off the drive with a touchdown and the extra point allowed the Tigers to tie the game at 7-all with 8:04 remaining in the first quarter.

The Tigers (0-2) took the second half kick off to the 27-yard line. But the Wildcats defense stifled Dunnellon, pushing them back until Forest recorded a safety to trim the Tigers lead to 6-2 and possession of the ball. With morale high for the Wildcats, Forests offense executed with precession, scoring a touchdown and adding the extra point for a 9-6 lead. With less than three minutes remaining in the third quarter, the Tigers offense was stymied on a fourth-and-short that resulted in a turnover. The fourth quarter went much like the first with a lot of back and forth ball possession between the two teams with neither team being able to score making the game a Wildcats victory. Dunnellon coach Archie Smith was, however, still proud of his players following their defeat. We went up against a school twice our size, meaning there existed a greater chance of us going up against players with more experience than our own guys, Smith said following the game. But my players still give it their 100 percent and judging from the way they played they are definitely going to be ready for next weeks match against Columbia come game time. Dunnellon plays tonight at home against Columbia.

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

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 post-traumatic 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.

Today you do not hear enough positive comments about young people. I would like to take the time to recognize Pizza Cafs great staff. Manager Ashley Zane & husband Jarred (manager of Paiges Root beer) are proud parents of two month old baby Atticus. Ashley is back and the perfect complement to our new and improved wait staff: Haley, Alex & Amber. Three great young ladies working hard to make sure our customers have a pleasant dining experience. In the kitchen we have Maxwell, John, Richard & David. David the new guy with three years and the rest of the guys have all been with the Pizza Caf for six or more years. This type of dedication keeps the food consistent and the customers coming back. We struggled for a few months getting Paiges Root beer open and making some staff adjustments in the front of the house at Chef Anthonys But we have come through it with the BEST sales quarter in ten years. All crew members including servers must work a shift per week in the kitchen to learn the product, timing, etc. to hopefully improve the customers dining experience. All new employees, after successful completion of probation period, get a maroon shirt, showing they are a Pizza Caf employee. Next is the green shirt showing they are fully trained and productive team members. Last is the black shirt of distinction, for dedication, positive attitude & superior performance. Sincerest thanks to the crew. Cheney Brothers is our exclusive food supply. C-B-I the largest privately owned food supplier in Florida providing the best products on the market. Chef Anthonys Pizza Caf only uses Grande cheese, there is no better. Stanislaus tomato products, best in the industry. Our product arrives fresh and clean twice a week. Pizza Caf maintains a clean kitchen and is one of the few mom and pop places, maybe the only one to receive a perfect health inspection. In ten years of business they may not have all been perfect but I can boast that Pizza Cafe has never received a bad health inspection. Go to myflorida.com hotel & restaurant and see for yourself. Chef Anthony takes the mystery out of making a great New York style pizza. Great pizza sauce starts with a great tomato. I have tried multiple brands of tomato paste, pizza sauce, and combinations of herbs and spices. The key is to understand that all tomatoes are not created equal. You have green house, Roma, field vine, California, etc. The time of year, amount of rainfall are a few factors that affect any tomato gravy. Start with a good base sauce. Chef Anthony only uses Stanislaus, absolutely the best tomato products on the market. Gravy should have a smooth texture with some small chunks of tomato still visible. You will need to add sugar in some quantity and heat over low flame for about fifteen minutes to cook out any bitterness in the sauce. Carrots are a good natural sweetener and will absorb some of the acid content. The amount of sugar, cook time and temperature may vary depending on some of the factors listed above. Chef Anthony uses the finest base tomato gravy and adds an assortment of spices to make a great pizza sauce. The bottom line is this: Stay away from precooked ready to serve sauce. The correct cook time and temperature is the key. Gently stir sauce about every three minutes, cool sauce for fifteen minutes and put in an airtight container and refrigerator for twelve to twenty four hours before serving. Most Pizza places buy frozen dough balls from their food supplier and tell costumers that they made it themselves. At the Pizza Caf Chef Anthony makes dough fresh every day. I have used purified water, spring water and filtered tap water. All three yield the same result. However, you cannot use Healthy Pizza... Is There Such A Thing? Being diabetic does not mean you have to give up pizza. Since being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, Kevin at the Pizza Caf has created a great tasting whole-wheat pizza. The new whole-wheat crust, in concert with healthy toppings like fresh vegetables and chicken, is fantastic! Try it with traditional red sauce, ricotta, or Alfredo sauce.

They make bad dough or they buy frozen dough balls loaded with preservatives. Basic ingredients: water, flour, yeast, salt, sugar, oil & filler (fillers are secret ingredients to give the dough a distinct flavor.) A few tips: Do not make your batch sizes too big, use cold water to keep the yeast from activating and the less time the batch of dough is exposed to air the better it will be.

Water and sewer rates are going up, but slightly less than what officials expected a year ago, the Dunnellon City Council learned Monday at the first of two budget workshops. City Manager Lisa Algiere unveiled the budgets for both the citys enterprise funds water and sewer, as well as Greenlight Dunnellon Communications. However, the largest opposition was in regard to the another increase in water and sewer rates as called for in a Burton & Associates study the City Council adopted a year ago. That plan called for rate hikes across the board for the next five years. Algiere told the Council both areas wont see the 6.75 percent and 7.25 percent hikes called for in the plan; however, water rates will increase 5.75 percent and sewer fees will move upward to 6.25 percent, both 1 percentage point lower. She did point out that even though water rates are going up, residents will see a decrease in their water bill. According to the study, those who use 4,000 gallons or less will pay $1.42 per 1,000 gallons of water compared to the current rate of $1.85; users consuming 8,000 gallons or less will pay $2.83 compared to the current rate of $4.02; the rate Man, 56, faces DUI, drug charges Report: Man had cocaineA 56-year-old Dunnellon man faces four charges, including possession of cocaine, less than 28 grams, and driving under the influence, according to police reports. A Dunnellon Police Department report stated Dwight Maxwell was charged Friday with possession of cocaine, less than 28 grams, driving under the influence, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and possession of drug paraphernalia. All told, his bond was set at $11,000. According to the report, Maxwell was driving along U.S. 41 when he failed to move and nearly struck Officer Adam Robinson while he was on an unrelated traffic stop. Maxwell did not initially stop his vehicle and traveled approximately 300 yards before stopping. The report stated after Sgt. Jacob Gonzalez made contact with Maxwell, he observed him to have bloodshot watery eyes, slow speech and constricted pupils. Also, in plain view, Robinson had a converted beer can, which is used to smoke crack cocaine. Sgt. Gonzalez asked the defendant to exit the vehicle and detected the odor of alcoholic beverages emanating from his body. Maxwell was asked if he would participate in field sobriety exercises and he stated yes.

Yvonne Jones poses with grandson, 2-year-old Adin, while visiting the beach. Jones is scheduled for a lung transplant once she can raise money for a shortterm stay in Jacksonville. Local woman, 56, hopes for fresh breath of life Yvonne Jones has always been a strong woman with a zest for life. The 57-year-old mother of three and grandmother to four boys, Jones always appreciated small-town life, having grown up in the South Georgia area of Albany and Leesburg. Jones and her husband of 30 years moved to Dunnellon seven years ago when Tom accepted a job in Ocala. Her daughter, Melissa, said they chose Dunnellon because it offers a small hometown feeling that we come from in Leesburg, Ga. Jones 8year-old grandson competes in Dunnellon Little League. Everyone knows that when they see my son, they will also see my parents, Melissa explained. They are very involved with his baseball. Yet it was 2005 when Yvonnes life really changed. She was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, which occurs when lung tissue becomes damaged and scarred. This thickened, stiff tissue makes it more difficult for the lungs to work properly. As pulmonary fibrosis worsens, you become progressively more short of breath. So when the Joneses relocated to Dunnellon, Yvonne Jones awaits lung transplants See CHARGES page 3 JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Dwight Maxwell DHS grad lands coveted spot on Gator Marching Band Its great to be a Florida Gator! is the chant of many Floridians who cheer on the University of Florida. Jacob Furr is a new member to the University of Floridas marching band. The 2012 Dunnellon High School graduate made his debut Saturday, Sept. 1, when the Gators played host to Bowling Green. It is completely mind blowing, Furr said of the experience. When youre all cramped up in the tunnel and the drums are beating and youre marching really fast you get all pumped, then you burst out of the tunnel and take the field and you realize youre the focal point of thousands of people, its just awesome. I was a little nervous, but its my job to play and you gotta do what you gotta do. They told us beforehand to not stare in awe at the Jumbotron and above all else, focus on the marching if youre too excited to play. Earning a coveted spot on the marching band roster was a long, arduous task. Furr was emailed the three most famous songs from the University of Florida Orange and Blue, We are the Boys and the Alma Mater. He had to learn and record those, the 12 major scales and the full range chromatic scale. I only had trouble with the Orange and Blue because it has some difficult runs and is kind of fast, Furr explained. Also, I had to learn most of the scales because last year we only went over five. Furr then submitted his recordings via email July 27, receiving a You are in response the following day. I was really surprised that the response came back as quick as it did, Furr said. Furr had to fill out a lot of paperwork as an undergraduate nondegree-seeking student because he is currently a student at AMANDA BARNEY For the Riverland News Furr flashes a peace sign as the band makes its way to the stadium.

Santa Fe College. Furr participated in the Dunnellon High School band, playing several instruments such as guitar and saxophone. He was the groups Drum Major his senior year. When I first started thinking about the band I wasnt too excited, Furr said. Ive been playing in the band so long I kind of wanted a break. According to Furr, when he got accepted he thought about it and the more he realized it, its a whole bunch of new opportunities and he will be challenged and encouraged. Performing a new halftime show each game is a big difference from his previous band experiences. Furr is sure that he will be playing mostly, if not only, the saxophone, because that is what he did the recordings with. Furr exclaimed that if he had the opportunity to try something else for a bit, he would do it. Furrs grandparents, Nick and Joanne Mancini, have season tickets and go to all of the Gator games. Overall, Im just happy that I will be challenged and have the opportunity to succeed, Furr said. Im also looking forward to maybe making some new friends. Yvonne, who had long since retired from her career working in factories and the pest control business, decided it was time to follow a lifelong dream of obtaining a college degree, Melissa said. In 2010, she became the first college graduate in her family when she completed her studies at Daytona State College. She has motivated me and showed me that it doesnt matter what obstacle you are faced with, if you put your mind to it, anything is possible, Melissa said. Yvonne now holds an AAS in Occupational Therapy Assistance, but her latest career has been derailed due to an illness, one where every breath she takes might be her last. Her condition worsened after a bout with bilateral phenomena, which forced her to go on oxygen /7. Now, she is facing her toughest test yet a lung transplant. I thought I was dying right then, she said when her condition worsened in 2010 and 2011. Everything I have ever read, gave me a short life span. Then I was told I really am critically ill. It just slapped me. The cost of the lifesaving surgery will be covered by her insurance company. Her medical insurance will cover a bulk of the cost of the antirejection and 14 other medications she must take for the remainder of her life. Yvonne, who is being treated at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, must stay in the area for three to six months after the transplant. The insurance company wont cover those costs, so now shes focused on raising the funds necessary for a short-term stay in Jacksonville. Youve got to be there every day afterwards for tests, for physical therapy for numerous things, she explained. She hopes to have the necessary expenses covered by December and be ready to move to Jacksonville in the first part of 2013. Id like to have it all done within the end of the year, she said. Im like a ticking time bomb. Ive already exceeded the lifespan I should have had, but hopefully, by December we have all of the money we need raised. The Jones family will host Lollipop 4 Lungs Oct. 27 in the Walmart parking lot. They will exchange lollipops for donations. Jones family is also chronicling her plight on the Facebook page Loving Lungs 4 Yvonne. She has been such a motivation to me and my family and she is truly our rock, Melissa said. She is stubborn and faces each obstacle as a challenge. I truly believe she will have a long, fulfilled life once she receives the transplant. I have such a loving family, its easy to remain positive around my family, Yvonne said. I keep convincing myself Im too young to have this and take one day at a time. I look toward tomorrow. So once she receives a fresh breath, what will Yvonne do first? Give back to the community, volunteer, do whatever I can to help someone else out, she said. Levy County Emergency Management Director Mark Johnson, a well-known musician, is the third annual recipient of the Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass. Along with a plaque, Johnson receives a $50,000 check, a sculpture by artist Eric Fischi and he will perform with Martin on the Late Show with David Letterman on Sept. 26. The award is bestowed by the Steve Martin foundation. Martin, best known as a comedian, is also an award-winning bluegrass musician and plays a Deering Clawgrass Banjo named after Johnsons style of bluegrass. Johnson, who records with Emory Lester, a mandolin and guitar musician, has championed the Clawgrass style of banjo play. Johnson said he was stunned to receive the award. He was at home earlier this week when the FedEx truck pulled in to deliver the package containing the award. Johnson, who is in his busy season as emergency management director, said he is worried about leaving the county for a few days to rehearse and perform with Martin on the Letterman show. But it is an opportunity to put forth the Levy County name on a popular TV program, he said. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, September 13, 2012 000CK4H 11371 N. Williams St. 11371 N.

According to the report, prior to starting the exercises, Maxwell told authorities he did not have any injuries or disabilities that would prevent him from doing the exercises. The report stated this about Maxwells results: Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus Exercise: Maxwell had bloodshot watery eyes, constricted pupils and Maxwell was unable to follow the stimulus at times. Walk and Turn Exercise: Maxwell lost his balance during the instructions, attempted to begin prior to being told to do so, stopped on each step forward (taking 10 steps, one more than instructed), failed to turn around and walk back, until being reminded to do so, made an improper turn and took 11 steps back (two more than instructed). Finger to Nose Exercise: Maxwell failed to follow the instructions by keeping his finger on his nose at all times. He failed to use the tip of his finger on each attempt. He failed to touch the tip of his nose on each attempt and he used the wrong hand on two attempts (five right and six left). Romberg Balance Exercise: Maxwell didnt follow instructions by opening his eyes twice and estimated the passage of 30 seconds in 47 seconds. According to the report, after Maxwell was charged with driving under the influence, a piece of crack cocaine was found on the rear floorboard where the converted beer can used to smoke crack cocaine was located. Two Hydrocodone pills wrapped in a paper towel were also discovered under the dashboard mat on the passenger side of the vehicle. The report stated, post Miranda, Maxwell told authorities he didnt know where the crack cocaine and paraphernalia came from and added that a girl lost the pills in his vehicle, but he looked for them and couldnt find them. Maxwell was transported to the Marion County Jail, where he refused to the lawful test of his breath and urine for the purpose of determining its alcohol and/or controlled substance content.

According to the report, while continuing to search, he located a plastic bag containing a large amount of marijuana, later verified to be 117 grams, under/ even with the edge of Slaughter's seat. A presumptive field test was later conducted and the substance tested positive for the presence of marijuana. The report stated Slaughter and the passengers in the car said they had no knowledge of the marijuana under his seat. His bond was set at $5,000.

River views Is everyone living in Never Never Land?We have refrained from writing letters to the editor up until now, because the people of this community have done a thorough job of explaining the pitfalls of our water/sewer situation; however, we feel compelled to ask the Editor about notes at the end or two different letters in todays paper. No. 1 letter from Mr. Birdsall: Editors Note: The projects listed on the Water Plan are not going to be done all at once; they will be completed on an as-needed basis when funds are available. Comments: The projects will not be done all at once was also stated by Mayor Ward, but why should we believe anything Mayor Ward says? His track record is not a display of professionalism or sound decision-making Regarding your note that the projects will be completed on an as-needed basis when funds are available. Just when will funds be available? Funds are not available for the existing debt that the city has incurred and because they are not making payments on current indebtedness, the flagrant remark that as funds are available tells me that those needs will not be taken care of for many, many years. Are you, as Editor, simply repeating the Mayors statement? Or are you, too, in Never, Never Land. No. 2 Letter, from Ms. Taubert: You may be correct with your statement that the city is not giving out raises to its employees this year; however, you should have mentioned that the city is lowering its tax base to residents. If memory serves me, that too will reduce the citys income. Why would they deliberately reduce their income while their debts are still in arrears, with no other income forthcoming to meet those debt payments? Oh yes, I forgot. Those roof-tops to the north will help. That thought is also in Never-Never Land.Penny and Sam Calloway Rainbow Springs Fears for rezoning simply not conveyed in letter to paperRe: Dr Lumapas rezoning on county road 484 Mary Hackers letter in last weeks Riverland News was interesting to say the least. Im not sure if the rezoning is for a medical office or a strip bar. Get real. What medical office has people who play loud music, expose themselves, hang out and tease your pets? If youre retiring in 2013, prepare now Have you been car shopping lately? Its not a fun experience. House prices have come way down; car prices have not. Its crazy. Even the smallest, cheapest car can still run you almost $20,000, and car payments are now the size of mortgage payments. Unless youre living in your car, this makes no sense. It always seems to be the hottest day of the year with no breeze blowing when youre wandering around the car lot. Theres always a slick, well-dressed salesperson at your beck and call, even when not needed. Oh yes, Mr. Salesman says, I can definitely get you into that new car. Dont even worry about the price. Dont you just love when they step inside for a few minutes to talk to their boss and they leave you hanging? My mother says thats when they go for a coffee break. Many times, after spending the whole day shopping, you still come home with the same ride you left in. A good friend of mine has been out almost every day this week, but still nothing. Now Im sure there are great car sales people out there, but my experiences have not been good ones. The only time I bought a car in less time than it took to eat dinner was when I bought my Cadillac CTS, and I loved that car. It did everything, but shop for you. However, with the Cadillac brand comes the Cadillac prices. Even the windshield wipers cost $84, but I do hope to own one again someday. When we arrived home from our trip to Tennessee, my husband noticed my Saturn was acting funny. Its time to trade this one in, he announced. I would rather go in for a root canal. After asking me several times if I was ready to go car shopping and me always answering in the negative, he took matters into his own hands. Russell did all the legwork, research and shopping online. He actually spent a couple of weeks checking out every make and model. By the time he told me about it, the deal was done. I owned a new car that Id never even seen. Now thats having a lot of trust in ones partner. All I had to do was look over the papers and sign them. We are now the proud owners of a brand new Kia Soul. Russell learned they are one of the top rated cars, with an outstanding warranty package, valuable safety features, and it also gets more than 30 miles to the gallon. What a cute car, too.

With the rain we have had, things are growing nicely although some of my vegetables have been bashed to the ground by the really heavy rain we had. Plants are busy growing, but the flowers have just about done on my perennials. I have recently planted some new herbs that can tolerate the warmer early fall temperatures, and these seem to be thriving. Mint, tarragon (Mexican), rosemary and basil are good to plant at this early stage of September. It is also time to plant beans, beets, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, Chinese cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, collards, cucumbers, eggplants, escarole, kale, lettuce, mustard, onion sets, peas, peppers, radishes, romaine, rutabagas, spinach, squash, strawberries, sweet corn, Swiss chard, tomatoes and turnips. Many of these vegetables need the cooler weather and even a frost to grow, and develop a taste. It may be worth starting seed in trays or pots to plant out later while the beds are made ready. Make sure that if you have poor soil to put back some organic matter, and work into the area you want to use. I recently cleaned out my chickens and piled all the old hay and muck into a long pile. This will be used for various vegetables. If you want a faster start, then it may be worth buying small plants from stores, but seeds are still the cheapest way. Keep an eye on lawns for insect damage. Chinch bugs, webworms and mole crickets are still active during September. If you have perennials in your garden, now is the time to lift these and divide to make new plants. If the clump is looking too large or simply tired, then gently lift the plant, divide by breaking up or cutting and replant the clumps in your new chosen spots. Make sure to water the new plantings regularly to help settle and establish. Now is the time to plant firebush, russelia and other perennials to ensure growth for next spring and summer. This is the time to prune poinsettias especially if you want a nice show for the holidays. Remove small spindly branches to encourage good growth. Watch for hornworms as the new growth comes through. Enjoy this time as the fall arrives Email Tracy Jenner, the Riverland Gardener, at tracyjenner@aol.com.

have realized a 5-foottall woman needs a Crossover or SUV, so I can sit up high and actually see over the dashboard. I enjoy driving again. This is the car with the rapping hamsters. Now I know why they appear to be having so much fun. I do get it now. Im a middle-class American who can afford a Kia Soul. I realize Im not driving a Cadillac anymore, but this car and this ad encourage me not to care. This hamster ad makes me want to drive long distances with the music blaring, as I wave my hands up in the air. Middle-class has never been hipper or more fun. You can get with this, or you can get with that. Just call me Soul Mama in her new pimpmobile, and then get out of my way. Audrey Beem, The Jersey Girl, can be reached via email at abeemer22 @att.net. I have worked in medical offices for many years now retired and I am a patient of Dr. Lumapas. Never have I seen any of the behavior described in that letter. Since you are worried, I promise, to keep all my clothes on until I am safely in an exam room, save all my specimens for the laboratory and keep my radio volume down. Since I dont hang out long after an appointment, it should not be a worry either. I love animals, so I wont harass your dogs. In other words, I think your fears are unfounded and you must have a better reason to oppose the rezoning.Janet Amos Dunnellon Kudos to city for creating a bike trailI want to thank the city for building a bike trail in Dunnellon. Now my family will not have to go to the Citrus County Bike Trail. The bike trail there does not have water or restrooms. I think that a good idea would be for the city to build a public restroom and sell bottled water. The money from the water could help pay for the bike trail. I think it would be good to build a pool for visitors to use, maybe near the bike trail. I hope that the cars will be careful if they are near the bikers. It is nice for a city to build something that all of us can enjoy even if you live somewhere else.Linda Rodriguez DunnellonFriends of the Library thank community againThank you for supporting the Friends Book Stores August sale.

FREE HEARING TEST LETTERS continued from page 4 JERSEY continued from page 4 SOCIAL SECURITY QUESTIONS & ANSWERSQuestion: What can I do to protect myself against identity theft? Answer: First, dont carry your Social Security card in your wallet. Keep it at home with your other important papers. Second, avoid giving out your Social Security number. While many banks, schools, doctors, landlords, and others will request your number, it is your decision whether to provide it. Ask if there is some other way to identify you in their records. To report identity theft, fraud, or misuse of your Social Security number, the Federal Trade Commission, the nations consumer protection agency, recommends you: Place a fraud alert on your credit file by contacting one of the following companies (the company you contact is required to contact the other two, which will then place alerts on your reports): Equifax, 800-525-6285; Trans Union, 800-6807289; or Experian, 888397-3742. Review your credit report for inquiries from companies you have not contacted, accounts you did not open, and debts on your accounts you cannot explain; Close any accounts you know, or believe, have been tampered with or opened fraudulently; File a report with your local police or the police in the community where the identity theft took place; and File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877438-4338 (TTY 1-866653-4261). Question: Its hurricane season. If there is a big storm in my area, will I still be able to do business with Social Security? Answer: During an emergency, keep in mind two things. First, you can conduct most of your business with Social Security online at www.socialsecurity. gov. There, youll find a wealth of information and online services. For example, you can apply online for Social Security benefits or for Medicare, and then you can check on the status of your pending application. If youre already receiving Social Security benefits, you can go online to change your address, phone number, or your direct deposit information, get a replacement Medicare card, or request a proof of income letter. You even can get your Social Security Statement online. You also can find out if your local office is open by going online to www.socialsecurity. gov/emergency. That site lists any office closings and delays. Second, make sure you receive your benefits through Direct Deposit. While the mail can be disrupted during severe weather, Direct Deposit payments arrive in your account on time, all the time. Go to www.social security.gov/deposit to sign up or for more information. Question: Im retired and the only income I have is from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). Are my IRA withdrawals considered earnings? Could they reduce my monthly Social Security benefits? Answer: No. We count only the wages you earn from a job or your net profit if youre self-employed. Non-work income such as annuities, investment income, interest, capital gains, and other government benefits are not counted and will not affect your Social Security benefits. Most pensions will not affect your benefits either. However, your benefit may be affected by a government pension from work on which you did not pay Social Security tax.

The DMS Media Center offers a wide range of books for students to choose from and cordially extends an invitation to our students and staff to stop in, browse our shelves, and find just the right book for you. DMS loves to read! With the love of reading in mind, Mrs. Anderson would like to make our Dunnellon community aware that September is Library Card Sign-up Month. The Marion County School District Library Media Services is collaborating with The Marion County Public Library System to recognize this reading campaign. The DMS Media Center will receive information packets to distribute to our sixth-grade students about how they can obtain a free library card, one of the smartest cards a person can ever own.

Please drop your donation of Box Tops to Building No. 10, Discipline/ Attendance Office or Building No. 1 front desk. Thank you for thinking of us.

Last week, the staff, students and parents pulled together to find a solution to declining enrollment. For the first in many years, the enrollment projections were not met at Romeo. Due to the funding issues in our county, we had to reduce our teaching staff. Ms. Tull and Ms. Jangdhari were transferred to Dunnellon Elementary. The students in their classes had to be distributed among the remaining teachers, so every class would have the correct number of students. This also meant that, Mrs. Markham and Mrs. Beck would need to change the grade levels they had been assigned, so that the school could meet the class-size mandates of the state legislature. The moves and changes are quite common in Marion County, but unusual in the Dunnellon area. We are sure that everyone will pull together to make this the best year ever for blazing new trails as Romeo Pioneers. Romeos own WPKN news show has started and our news staff for the week of Sept. 10 to 14 are: Amanda Swaney (Anchor 1), Morris Carver (Anchor 2), Barry Duncan (Pledge of Allegiance and School Pledge), Tiffany Clarke (Weather), Austin Coomer (Camera 1), Madison Miguel (Camera 2), Parker Whitmore (mixer), Gabby Bass (sound), Zariah Parks (Computer) and Kaylie Rodriguez (Script). We look forward to an award-winning year in our video productions. Our third-, fourthand fifthgraders were scheduled to take a District Demand Writing, test Sept. 6. Due to the class changes mandated by the state requirements on class size, the test has been rescheduled for Sept. 27 with the kindergarten, firstand second-grade students. The Romeo Elementary SAC meeting has been changed to Sept. 17 due to conflicting administrative meetings. The meeting will be at 2:30 p.m. in the Media Center. Our PTO will meet at 2:30 p.m. Sept. 18 in the Media Center. We welcome all parents to come and join us as we prepare for our annual Romeo Roundup.Calendar of Events 2:30 p.m. Sept. 17 School Advisory Council meeting in the Media Center 2:30 p.m. Sept. 18 PTO meeting in the Media Center Noon Sept. 19 Early Release day.

for 12,000 gallons or less will be $4.25 compared to the rate of $6.63; and those using 20,000 gallons or less will pay $6.16 as opposed to the current fee of $10.61. Irrigation users are also catching a break on their water bills, because the city is charging them the same residential rates as opposed to a larger rate some municipalities charge. Algiere explained in brief detail that a current water user consuming 3,000 gallons and using the sewer system will pay $52.64 per year, up $6.54 from the current figure. According to the study completed by Burton & Associates, 63.4 percent of utility customers citywide use 3,000 gallons or less. The study also showed that Rainbow Springs residents using 3,000 gallons or less will pay $55.93, up $10.02 from last years fee of $49.61. Algiere said that includes the 5 percent incremental increase from 80 percent of the citys base rate to 85 percent plus the 25 percent surcharge. Several key reasons for the smaller increases across the board for the citys utility users were the acquisitions of the Rio Vista, Juliette Falls and Rainbow Springs systems in the past year, according to the Water & Sewer Revenue Sufficiency and Rate Structure Analysis completed by Burton & Associates. Increased customer base and realized some economies of scale, the report stated. All told, the citys water enterprise fund budget is jumping from $752,593 a year ago to $4,178,333, an increase of 455.2 percent. Revenues are up 240 percent from $389,125 to $1,322,868. The citys sewer enterprise fund budget is jumping 62.4 percent, from $2,030,870 in 2012 to 3,298,180 for the proposed Fiscal Year 2013. According to the proposed budget, revenues are increasing 349.8 percent, from $351,035 last year to $1,578,830 this upcoming Fiscal Year if the Council approves the final budget at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 24. Among the capital improvements, according to the report, slated for Fiscal Year 2013 include: Water Main and Service Line Replacement Program $2.6 million Utility Extensions and Interconnects $2.5 million Fire Hydrant Program $2.3 million Sewer Line Replacement $1.5 million New Water Treatment Plant, East of City $1.1 million Meter Replacement Program $750,000. SCADA System $700,000. Lift Station Improvements $500,000. Both budget proposals drew criticism from a handful of residents and a large contingency of Rainbow Springs residents still seething from the citys purchase of Rainbow Springs Utility in late December 2011. How can you approve this? Rainbow Springs resident Joan Duggins asked. Who are you kidding? Why so much need to repair? Its no secret youve concerned about your own system for quite some time. Duggins said it didnt matter what she or anyone else had to say about rates increasing. Those rates are already a done deal, she said. Doc Andrews, a resident of Dunnellon Mobile Home Park, said more increases will just make it harder on elderly citizens who live on a fixed budget. He pointed out the 125 residents at Dunnellon Mobile Home Park have seen their rent increased $26 per month. Andrews pointed out thats everyone, which equals $40,000-plus less those folks have to spend on doctors visits, medications and businesses throughout town. You should run this city as we run our homes; if we dont have the money for it, we dont spend it, he explained. Resident Dean Jimmie Dean Flore questioned why his sewer bill is 75 percent more than his water bill. The Dunnellon Heights resident said for those shouting theres a lack of water pressure in the area isnt true. I have water pressure, he said. He said the city should focus on improving the road in the area. If you look at the road, its full of potholes; what a disgrace, Flore said. He told the Council it needs to curtail its spending. Enough is enough, Flore said. The budget for Greenlight Communications was also presented by Algiere. A year ago, Greenlight had a budget of $2,749,218, but is increasing to $4,693,599. The FY 2013 budget shows a projected revenue stream of $4,693,599 in the coming calendar year. Thus far, the citys lofty fiber to the home program has more than 800 registered residential and business users. The citys first bond payment of more than $1 million is scheduled to paid in November to Regions Bank in Orlando. Rainbow Springs resident Steve Swett questioned those figures, saying it would take 2,000 customers paying $200 a month to make that. How are you going to cover that debt? he asked. How will you pay the debt? The city will vote on a final budget at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 24. The budget must be approved before the new fiscal year begins Oct. 1.

Matthew 18:20711180 000CJRR New pastor takes helm at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church Father Jean Desire is on a journey that has led him to St. John the Baptist Catholic Community. Appointed as pastor Aug. 1, Father Desire has been given the task of guiding and uniting the English and Spanish-speaking congregations. Father Desire was transferred from St. Faustina Parish in Clermont, where he and the congregation raised more than $500,000 toward the building of a church. All journeys begin with a quest, he said. Quests begin with questions like, Who am I? How do I fit in with the rest of the world? What does God mean to me? What do I mean to Him? What does He want from me? Born in Limbe, Haiti, Father Desire began focusing on becoming a priest as a young child. The third of four children, he and his two brothers and sister, were raised primarily by their mother, Marlete Mondelus, after losing his father, Idevert Desir, at the age of 5. Raised in a devoutly Catholic home and neighborhood, Father Desire took notice of his mothers involvement in the Catholic Church. She participated in many church groups, like charismatic and choir and also took care of the priests vestments, he said. Her involvement in church has a tremendous and significant impact on me. At the age of 10, right after my First Communion, I became an altar server. It was at this point I heard my initial calling. Father Desire, who talked with his mother about every aspect of his life, told her about his being called by God. When things didnt seem to be OK with me, my mom was always there to give me comfort, support and love, he said. Whenever I was thrown into a valley of confusion and doubt, my mom was the one to bring me certitude and hope. She helped me identify the right voice, which was Gods voice.

was Gods voice telling me, Dont be afraid. Come and follow me. In August 1998 he was accepted as a seminarian by the Diocese of Orlando, entering the St. John Vianney Seminary so that he could complete his undergraduate degree. It was really a blessing, he said, noting in May 2000 he received his undergraduate degree in philosophy at St. John Vianney College Seminary before entering St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary in September 2000. He spent the next three years completing his theological formation. On May 8, 2003, the Bishop of Orlando Norbert M. Dorsey, CP, called him to order and he became a transitional deacon. On May 28, 2004, he was ordained a priest. Father Desires first assignment as a priest took him to St. Josephs Church in Palm Bay. He stayed there for a slightly more than three years before being transferred to Blessed Trinity in Ocala. Father Desire remained at Blessed Trinity for more than two years before getting what he terms as a surprise call from Bishop Wenske telling him he was taking over St. Faustina Parish with the mission of building a church. St. Faustina in itself is really a challenge for me as a new pastor, Father Desire explained. My biggest challenge is to unite the people and see that everyone works together even though they come from different family backgrounds with different tempers and ideologies.

He won the 200-yard freestyle in a time of 2:25.21, swimming it for the first time ever. He also won the 100-yard Breaststroke in a time of 1:21.64, and was a member of the winning 200yard freestyle relay team. Laura Riley, Cheerleading Laura is always full of spirit and ready to help with everything. She always cheers her varsity team on with a smile and lots of energy. Laura has really improved in her stunting skills and likes to try new things. She encourages other to do their best at all times. Laura is definitely a positive role model. She maintains excellent grades and gets involved in extra activities to help out at DHS! Laura Riley Chase Reilly DHS ATHLETES OF THE WEEKPRESENTED BY GREENLIGHT DUNNELLON COMMUNICATIONS Cross country runners pacing themselves early Dunnellon High Schools cross country team is hitting the turf, warming up for its season, which began Wednesday, Sept. 12, with a meet at Lake Weir High School. Valerie Bazarte returns as boys head coach, with Michael Rumsey coaching the girls after the departure of coach Tracy Young. Rumsey has been coaching runners at the Dunnellon Middle for about six years. There are a lot of competitive runners on this years team, said Bazarte, who has more than a dozen boys attending practices. This is the largest group of boys I have had tryout and they have the ability to go to regionals as a team. The girls team has added a few runners. After Brittany Lakhani and Natalie Cote graduated, the only returning runner is junior Courtney Pike. Pike advanced last year, as did now-senior Victor Chicas, and the coaches have high expectations that these athletes will lead the team to great accomplishments. Coach Rumsey is a great coach who definitely will push us to do our best, he is very involved as a coach, which I think is going to make us better faster, Pike said. Chicas is looking forward to the season. Im always ready, he explained. Another promising athlete on the boys team is sophomore Kevin Hanson, who moved here last spring from Haiti. He is someone to definitely watch, said Bazarte. Team opened season Wednesday at Lake Weir Invite Victor Chicas Courtney Pike KAYLA McMANN For the Riverland News REBECCA FRECHETTE/For the Riverland NewsSteadying her breathing with a cloud of bubbles, junior Cierra Thompson, a returning swimmer, warms down after her last race on Sept. 6 against Lecanto. Dunnellon swim team small in numbers, big on heart During exciting or high-stress situations a hormone produced in the glands known as adrenaline is sent through the body. Many people find this to be a good feeling as associated with bungee jumping or even riding a roller coaster. For others, its the rush of diving off the block into the chilled water. Dunnellon High Schools swim team, made a splash Sept. 6 during their first meet, against Lecanto High School at the Jervey Gantt pool in Ocala. Were not a real big team, but we have some good quality swimmers, said Dunnellon coach Bruce Wentz, who noted this years team currently has a total of 10 swimmers. A quartet of last years swimmers graduated: Alex Love, Kenny Kruger, Alex Bunce and Alora Thompson. Now having just enough for a few relay teams, this is one close-knit family of athletes. But because of the small size of this team, it will be difficult for them to win meets points-wise, even though some of them will stand out individually or on relay teams. The goal is to bring most, if not all, of these athletes to compete beyond districts. Wentz said he believes he has a good chance of getting a number of his swimmers to state this year with all the hard work they have been outing in. One current standout is Chase Reilly, who competed in the 100-yard breaststroke, with a time of 1:20 and the 200-yard freestyle with a time of 2:23. Cierra Thompson, a junior and returning swimmer, competed in the 100-yard backstroke, 200-yard IM, 200-yard medley relay and 400-yard relay. My heart is still beating fast from all the adrenaline, Thompson said. REBECCA FRECHETTE For the Riverland News Volleyball line-up changes spark fire Just like every delicious recipe, a great team needs an immense amount of time, ingredients and determination to come out on top. Dunnellon volleyball coach Terry Weber is stirring up a few changes on the court. After a few weeks of observing every strength and weakness, a slightly different recipe has been developed. By making Lexie Forrester the new libero (back row only) and Jody Weber the new setter, a few small gaps on the court were able to be filled. I saw a lot of improvement with the line-up change, said Weber. We still have a few small things to fix on defense as well as service errors, but the girls are steadily improving. Last Thursday, the varsity and JV teams drove more than hour to play at Nature Coast High. At first, the Lady Tigers dominated the scoreboard, playing better than ever before. Jody Weber played impressively recording five kills, two aces, three tips and five assists. Lexie Forrester earned the team eight service points and six digs. Nicole Drew demonstrated improvement with her six aces, seven tips and three assists. But with Kayla McMann out for the week, the pack was lacking a key part. Unfortunately, they had only won one of the rounds played. The JV girls also lost. Against the Meadowbrook Mustangs on Sept. 5, the Lady Tigers won the first game 25-20 and lost the next two sets, 16-25 and 19-25. It was a rough night for the ladies. Forrester skid the ground hard and Oteros glasses were knocked off. As volleyball season continues on, the schedule keeps challenging the teams to find the time to practice, and practice harder they will. Although the coaches fear Homecoming week will prove to be a challenge, with three games at home Monday and Tuesday, and today at Tavares amid the scheduled activities. I just hope the distractions of the daily events dont cause the girls to lose focus, Weber said, noting the Lady Tigers opponents include Bradford, Crystal River and Tavares. AMANDA BARNEY For the Riverland News Dunnellon JV football clipped by Wildcats, 9-6 While the game started off slowly, the battle between the Dunnellon High School junior varsity football team and Forest High School proved to be a gripping early-season bout, a 96 setback for the Tigers. While Dunnellon managed to hold on to the ball for most of the first quarter, the Tigers offense couldnt solve the Wildcats defense, being stopped short of the end zone at the 4yard line. With the ball now in the Wildcats possession, the Tigers defense took the field, preventing the Forest offense from scoring. By the end of the first, the game remained scoreless. The second quarter began much like the first, with a lot of back and forth ball possession between Dunnellon and Forest. However, the pace began to pick up late into the quarter when the Wildcats fumbled the ball at their own 17-yard line. Dunnellons Leo Munford recovered, picking up 8 yards. The Tigers were able to keep up the momentum of their fumble recovery and managed to push all the way into the Wildcats end zone, scoring the first touchdown for a 6-0 lead. Instead of opting for the extra point kick, Dunnellon decided to attempt for a two-point conversion, which fell short. With only seconds remaining in the opening half, the Wildcats were determined not to go into halftime scoreless. After a few valiant attempts to force themselves into Dunnellons end zone, the Wildcats were unDREW RONDEAU For the Riverland News Tigers winless, fall to 0-2 with narrow loss to Forest High Dunnellon junior varsity quarterback Chase Brattin looks for an open receiver during the Tigers regular-season opener against West Port.

Vince Lombardi, Hall of Fame coach. Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley agrees. The Dunnellon High School football team traveled Friday to Forest High School to face the Wildcats, heading home after being saddled with a 37-20 loss.

We have about two weeks to prepare ourselves before the district games begin, Beasley told his team in the postgame huddle. Forest wasted little time striking first, taking the lead, 7-0, on the Wildcats opening drive. Dunnellon had a response. Quarterback Jordan Boley found receiver Andre Jackson for a 32yard completion, setting up first-and-goal. Boley, a senior, capped off the drive with a touchdown and the extra point allowed the Tigers to tie the game at 7-all with 8:04 remaining in the first quarter.

The Tigers (0-2) took the second half kick off to the 27-yard line. But the Wildcats defense stifled Dunnellon, pushing them back until Forest recorded a safety to trim the Tigers lead to 6-2 and possession of the ball. With morale high for the Wildcats, Forests offense executed with precession, scoring a touchdown and adding the extra point for a 9-6 lead. With less than three minutes remaining in the third quarter, the Tigers offense was stymied on a fourth-and-short that resulted in a turnover. The fourth quarter went much like the first with a lot of back and forth ball possession between the two teams with neither team being able to score making the game a Wildcats victory. Dunnellon coach Archie Smith was, however, still proud of his players following their defeat. We went up against a school twice our size, meaning there existed a greater chance of us going up against players with more experience than our own guys, Smith said following the game. But my players still give it their 100 percent and judging from the way they played they are definitely going to be ready for next weeks match against Columbia come game time.

Dunnellon fought its way down the field. With a second-and-10, Boley looked for room and made a 24-yard strike to LG Brown, who ran in the touchdown. The extra point gave the Tigers a 14-10 lead with 1:30 left in the quarter. Forests offense showed its ability to move the ball, driving the ball deep inside Dunnellon territory, but they were again forced to settle for a field goal as Krysalka booted in a 31-yard attempt to cut the Tigers lead to 14-13. Both teams traded possessions before the Wildcats special teams play made its biggest play of the night. Wildcats speedster Jordon Austin field a punt at the 45-yard line and ran down the left side for a score, giving Forest a 20-14 lead with 49 seconds remaining before half time. After being forced to punt, the Wildcats drove the ball to the Dunnellon 32-yard line where again Forest settled for a Krysalka field goal, this time a 49-yard giving his team a 23-20 lead. The Tigers offense responded, as JVon Swoll converted a fourth-and23, setting up first-andgoal for Dunnellon. Boley capped the drive with his second rushing touchdown of the game, but the Tigers couldnt covert their 2-ponit attempt and trailed 23-20. Forest then slammed the door shut as the Wildcats scored 14 unanswered points. Forest quarterback Jake Roddenberry connected with receiver Quadarious Gordan for a 61-yard strike before Austin picked off a Boley pass and returned the interception 65 yards for a score. Oftentimes you learn more about yourself in a loss than you do a win, Beasley told his team after the game. We surely did find things out for ourselves tonight.

12 Riverland News, Thursday, September 13, 2012 F AMILY FEATURES Game day is no time to be sidelined in the kitchen. Do a little pre-game p lanning so you can spend less t ime cooking and more time c heering on the home team. K eep it simple Instead of t aking up space with a lot of d ishes to hold condiments, use m uffin pans. Each well in the p ans can hold a different topping f or your burgers, hot dogs or c hili. Put a spoon in each for e asy dipping. Its simple, fun, a nd youll have fewer post-game d ishes to wash. Set up a dipping station Have a selection of salsas and guac available so everyone can have their favorite. From Wholly Salsas classics to the new red pepper mango or roasted tomato varieties, fans can find a salsa to cheer about. And for guacamole lovers, try Wholly Guacamoles all-natural, gluten free varieties. In addition to chips, set out some of these tasty dippers:Bell pepper slicesBaked mozzarella sticksShrimpPita chipsBagel chipsJicama sticksMini rice cakes Make sure you have enough Dont disappoint guests by run ning out of munchies or drinks. Heres how to figure out how much you need to prepare:If youre having 8 to 10 guests, figure on three different appetizers. For up to 16 guests, plan four or five appetizers. For non-alcoholic drinks, plan on two 16-ounce cups per person. Plan on about two glasses of wine or three beers per person.To have enough ice for drinks, as well as to keep drinks cold in a cooler, get about a pound and a half of ice per person.Homegating SnackersYield: 10 to 12 1 tube pre-made pizza crust (thin) 1 7-ounce package Wholly Guacamole dip 1 red bell pepper cut into small strips Roll out uncooked pizza dough on counter.

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

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 post-traumatic 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.Riverland News, Thursday, September 13, 2012 15 NEW LOCATION 11352 N.

Chef Anthonys Pizza Caf uses secret family recipes for pizza dough, sauces L ELAND A SHBY Pizza Critic What Makes Us Great? Today you do not hear enough positive comments about young people. I would like to take the time to recognize Pizza Cafs great staff. Manager Ashley Zane & husband Jarred (manager of Paiges Root beer) are proud parents of two month old baby Atticus. Ashley is back and the perfect complement to our new and improved wait staff: Haley, Alex & Amber. Three great young ladies working hard to make sure our customers have a pleasant dining experience. In the kitchen we have Maxwell, John, Richard & David. David the new guy with three years and the rest of the guys have all been with the Pizza Caf for six or more years. This type of dedication keeps the food consistent and the customers coming back. We struggled for a few months getting Paiges Root beer open and making some staff adjustments in the front of the house at Chef Anthonys But we have come through it with the BEST sales quarter in ten years. All crew members including servers must work a shift per week in the kitchen to learn the product, timing, etc. to hopefully improve the customers dining experience. All new employees, after successful completion of probation period, get a maroon shirt, showing they are a Pizza Caf employee. Next is the green shirt showing they are fully trained and productive team members. Last is the black shirt of distinction, for dedication, positive attitude & superior performance. Sincerest thanks to the crew. Cheney Brothers is our exclusive food supply. C-B-I the largest privately owned food supplier in Florida providing the best products on the market. Chef Anthonys Pizza Caf only uses Grande cheese, there is no better. Stanislaus tomato products, best in the industry. Our product arrives fresh and clean twice a week. Pizza Caf maintains a clean kitchen and is one of the few mom and pop places, maybe the only one to receive a perfect health inspection. In ten years of business they may not have all been perfect but I can boast that Pizza Cafe has never received a bad health inspection. Go to myflorida.com hotel & restaurant and see for yourself. Chef Anthony takes the mystery out of making a great New York style pizza. Great pizza sauce starts with a great tomato. I have tried multiple brands of tomato paste, pizza sauce, and combinations of herbs and spices. The key is to understand that all tomatoes are not created equal. You have green house, Roma, field vine, California, etc. The time of year, amount of rainfall are a few factors that affect any tomato gravy. Start with a good base sauce. Chef Anthony only uses Stanislaus, absolutely the best tomato products on the market. Gravy should have a smooth texture with some small chunks of tomato still visible. You will need to add sugar in some quantity and heat over low flame for about fifteen minutes to cook out any bitterness in the sauce. Carrots are a good natural sweetener and will absorb some of the acid content. The amount of sugar, cook time and temperature may vary depending on some of the factors listed above. Chef Anthony uses the finest base tomato gravy and adds an assortment of spices to make a great pizza sauce. The bottom line is this: Stay away from precooked ready to serve sauce. The correct cook time and temperature is the key. Gently stir sauce about every three minutes, cool sauce for fifteen minutes and put in an airtight container and refrigerator for twelve to twenty four hours before serving. Most Pizza places buy frozen dough balls from their food supplier and tell costumers that they made it themselves. At the Pizza Caf Chef Anthony makes dough fresh every day. I have used purified water, spring water and filtered tap water. All three yield the same result. However, you cannot use Healthy Pizza... Is There Such A Thing? Being diabetic does not mean you have to give up pizza. Since being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, Kevin at the Pizza Caf has created a great tasting whole-wheat pizza. The new whole-wheat crust, in concert with healthy toppings like fresh vegetables and chicken, is fantastic! Try it with traditional red sauce, ricotta, or Alfredo sauce.

They make bad dough or they buy frozen dough balls loaded with preservatives. Basic ingredients: water, flour, yeast, salt, sugar, oil & filler (fillers are secret ingredients to give the dough a distinct flavor.) A few tips: Do not make your batch sizes too big, use cold water to keep the yeast from activating and the less time the batch of dough is exposed to air the better it will be.
