The Dunnellon City Council as well as state agencies such as the Department of Economic Opportunity and the Department of Environmental Protection signed off on a deal to bring closure to the Bert Harris lawsuit filed against the city several years ago. The City Council praised the efforts of City Manager Lisa Algiere and other officials for getting the job done. Its time to move forward, Mayor Fred Ward said about the long-standing, costly issue. Im in favor of supporting this. Mark Penfeld, an Ocalabased attorney representing Jerry Dodd, the developer of the property, called the agreement a win for all involved. We should all be happy and satisfied with this agreement, he said. We all worked together to reach a compromise most everyone was happy with.

Cusack visited the patch with her sister and grandparents on opening day of 2011 in hopes of finding the right pumpkin. They did so when they stumbled upon this 40-plus-pound pumpkin. The Pickin Patch opens at 10 a.m. Saturday. Admission is $2 per those 4 and older; children 3 and younger are free. Report: Man had 400-plus grams of marijuana in possesion A 19-year-old Clearwater man faces charges of possession of marijuana, more than 20 grams, with the intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia after law enforcement authorities discovered the young man had more than 1 pound of narcotics in his possession Saturday in the parking lot at City Hall, according to an arrest report from the Dunnellon Police Department. The report stated Joshua K. Hawkins was driving a green Ford truck along River Drive, turning right on U.S. 41 when officer Adam Robinson, who was conducting traffic enforcement in the area, observed that the vehicle registration was out of date. Robinson then initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle, which stopped in the parking lot of Dunnellon City Hall. According to the repot, Robinson made contact with Hawkins and requested his personal information and advised him of the reason for the traffic stop. Hawkins stated he was unaware of the expired registration. Mayor, Algiere talk new contract Council OKs 2013 budget City Manager Lisa Algiere was brought aboard three years ago to lead a city in a state of flux and mismanagement, to bring about changes and improvement in the community. The Dunnellon City Council praised her efforts, vision and guidance at the recent Dunnellon City Council Workshop. Now, Mayor Fred Ward and Algiere are in discussions for a new three-year contract to be presented at its next meeting. Her evaluation from four of the five Council members Erik Collop opted to not provide an evaluation because he had only served a month when the process was due was nothing less than stellar. The council graded her in four areas: personal and professional skills; provides effective support to council; continues to improve quality services to citizens; and supervise city operations. Councilwomen Penny Fleeger and Lynne McAndrew gave Algiere the highest point totals in their respective evaluations. Fleeger, in her rankings for all four categories, scored Algiere 278.5 points out of a possible 280 points, while McAndrew gave her 278 points. In Fleegers evaluation she wrote, Despite rumor to the contrary, Lisa is looking out for the citizens of Dunnellon with guidance and complete oversight by Council. She added her knowledge, kindness and abilities have JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Pickin Patch, a developing tradition, opens Saturday Theyre back, and ripe for the picking. For the third straight year, the Pickin Patch is set to open its gates Saturday, pull the tractor for old-fashion hayrides and allow thousands of guests the opportunity to enjoy what has quickly become a fall tradition for families throughout the region. The Pickin Patch opens at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, and will be open until Oct. 28. The hours of operation are 3 to 7 p.m. Fridays; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturdays; and noon to 7 p.m. Sundays. What started out three years ago as an idea and prayer has grown well beyond what Scott and Sarah Jo Thomas and Steve and Andrea Dixon could have ever envisioned. In 2010, the couples planted what seemed a meager 6 acres of pumpkins. The response was so overwhelming they added three additional acres a year ago as more than an estimated 8,000 people converged on the property. Obviously, when we started, it was next to unheard of to grow pumpkins here because of violent swing in weather, the humidity, the heat, the disease, the insects, Thomas said of the start three years ago. We were even discouraged by some to not even try. Both the Dixons and us felt very compelled that this was a direction God was leading us. Weve been surprised in every facet of our business, not by just people, just the comments they make to us, such as Weve made this part of our tradition, Thomas explained. Just the sheer turnout, friends are telling friends, we couldnt be more blessed. Theres no way we thought this would grow like it did. We anticipated a little year-to-year growth, but theres no way we could envision the magnitude of the growth weve had thus far. This year, the size of the patch has grown to a whooping 13 1/2 acres of pumpkins, Indian corn, decorative gourds and pumpkins as well as sunflowers. In addition to the larger swath of goodies for families to choose from, therell be a small corn maze, hay fort, hayrides and plenty of Eno wants battle in court and has boards full backing JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See SETTLEMENT page 3 Martha Schulz observes the view throughout the Pickin Patch after she plucked her own Sunflowers a year ago.

While speaking with Hawkins, Robinson detected the odor of marijuana emanating from inside the vehicle. Robinson asked Hawkins if he would consent to a search of the vehicle; Hawkins responded yes. Upon conducting the search of the vehicle, the report stated, Robinson observed a black pipe in Hawkins backpack and a marijuana cigarette (0.6 grams) under the cars front seat. According to the report, Robinson then located two large vacuum-sealed bags containing marijuana behind the drivers seat, along with a Seal-aMeal vacuum bagging system. One bag weighed 87.6 grams, the report stated, while the other bag weighed 228 grams. The report stated Robinson then located another large plastic container under the drivers seat, which contained marijuana totaling 159.4 grams, and plastic bags. Robinson conducted presumptive field tests on the marijuana, marijuana cigarette and the residue inside the black pipe, which all tested positive for the presence of marijuana. Hawkins was transported to the Marion County Jail. His bond was set at $5,500. Hawkins bonded out Sunday from the Marion County Jail.

signed off on the newest agreement and doesnt plan to, said Dr. Burt Eno, PhD, the president of the environmental group. We fully plan to go back to court, Eno said. Dr. Eno alleges the current agreement was done behind closed doors without presence of the RRC. They conspired behind closed doors, he said. We were taken advantage of. The pact with the city, Dodd, the DEO and DEP was approved Monday night by the City Council. That deal remains contingent on a judges approval; however, Dr. Eno said the RRC will object to the court signing off on it. A hearing will be requested, he said. I thought we made a good pitch. Dr. Eno said citizens dont fully understand the financial ramifications theyll be subjected to if the deal is approved by the courts. Currently, the city has spent more than $600,000 in legal fees since Dodd originally filed his lawsuit. We want to see a battle in court, Dr. Eno said. My board, 100 percent, feels that way. According to the deal, the agreement does not become final until: (A) the plat is recorded, and (B) the settlement agreement is approved by the Circuit Court as provided in 70.001, F.S., and the time to appeal has run, or, if appealed, when a decision is rendered which affirms the legality of the agreement. When the agreement becomes final, the property owners and the city will file voluntary dismissals of all pending claims against each other. The deal, if granted by a judge, stated the site design properly reflects the importance of the protection of the critical environmental and natural habitat areas of the property. Some of the these environmentally friendly design features include large, contiguous greenway trails, neighborhoods traversable by foot, a variety of housing choices and a protective buffer along the Rainbow River. According to the deal, the property owners will place a protective buffer along the riverfront of the Rainbow River. As used in this agreement, the term protective buffer means the area along the riverfront measured landward 100 feet from the ordinary high-water line or to the landward extent of the existing railroad berm, whichever distance is greater. Plat approval will require the protective buffer setback as noted above and a 25-foot setback from a jurisdictional wetland delineation line for the primary residential structure on each waterfront residential lot. All residential structures on non-riverfront lots will also be set back 25 feet from any jurisdictional wetland delineation lines. Within the protective buffer, the only structures permitted shall be docks, walkways, footpaths and gazebo-type structures. No residential structures may be located within the protective buffer and no gazebo may be converted to a residential structure. The agreement states the development of this project shall be subject to the requirement that all structures shall be connected to a central sewer system and an approved public or private central water system as to be outlined in a future Utility Services Agreement. The deal, agreed to by the city, DEO, DEP and Dodd, states the property owners recognize the city does not have sufficient water or wastewater capacity to serve the project at full buildout (349 homes and a 100,000-square-foot business district) without significant infrastructure improvements. To establish water and wastewater concurrency, the property owners agree to the following: Equivalent Residential Connection (ERC) is defined as: One ERC wastewater is equal to 300 gallons per day for wastewater and one ERC potable water is equal to 350 gallons per day for potable water at average daily flows. Wastewater impact fee: The wastewater impact fee per ERC is $1,805. Potable water impact fee: Per city ordinance, water impact fees are $100 per fixture unit and, for the purposes of this agreement, each 15-residential unit is assumed to have 12 fixture units. Therefore the potable water impact fee per ERC is $1,200. Potable water: The city engineer is currently doing a water system study for the city to determine the condition and capacity of the existing city water system. As an outcome of that study, the city will notify the property owners if it is found that any water capacity exists. At that time, the property owners will have the right to reserve ERC capacity by paying $1,200 per ERC. The property owners understand that the estimated cost associated with the construction of a water facility, sized to provide potable water and fire flow for the project, is $850,000. Furthermore, the agreement states, the property owners understand that prior to developing any phase of the project either: The city has existing capacity to serve the planned phase and the property owners will reserve the capacity by paying the appropriate impact fee. The city has constructed a new water facility and the property owners will reserve the required capacity for the planned phase by paying the appropriate impact fees. Property owners will construct a new water facility. Upon completion of such a facility, will transfer to the city, all rights to the facility as agreed upon in a future utility services agreement between the parties and in turn will receive credits as noted. The property owners have identified a 1-plusacre site for the construction of a new water facility for the project or regional facility. If it is determined by DEP that the site identified is not suitable for any reason, then the property owners will make a contribution of $50,000 to the city toward the purchase of an alternative site. The terms and condition of this contribution will be addressed in the future utility services agreement. The city may decide to construct a regional water facility, which it has estimated may cost $1.6 million. If the timing for the construction of this regional water facility corresponds with the time frame for the development of the project, the property owners and the city will endeavor to pool their funds as earmarked for their independent water facility needs and build the regional facility to serve the project and the city public service territory. The terms and conditions of this partnership will be addressed in a future Utilities Services agreement between the parties.

As Whitt wrapped up his comments and the meeting seemed head for closure, Fleegers patience ran short. Whitt had called out Mayor Fred Ward for calling Mondays public hearing regarding the settlement about the Bert Harris lawsuit a courtesy to the residents. A courtesy? Whitt questioned. I believe its in the best interest of the city to let the residents have a voice. Theyre frustrated. Whitt questioned the decision to seek the grant funding to run a water line from the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport west to Dunnellon Heights to improve water pressure there as well as in Blue Cove, and not to repair the citys aging water line along U.S. 41. If the grant funding is acquired, the city would have the water line run on the south side of the road, not the north side where proposed subdivisions Blue Run Ranches and Rainbow River Ranch are planned. Lets focus on what the city needs, Whitt said. Lets fix the town. Fleeger pointed to the recently adopted fiscal year 2013 budget, which included a twoyear plan to replace the aging water line along U.S. 41, before addressing Whitts comments. If you want facts, look at what weve done, she said. Weve already decided how to fix it. Im tired of having people come in here and not knowing the facts. This is not the place for you to do your campaigning. Im tired of the (expletive) and moaning. You dont know a damn thing about what were doing. If youd come to the meetings regularly, youd know what we have planned. During her outburst, Rainbow Springs resident Dr. Burt Eno, PhD, chuckled from the back of the chamber. Dr. Eno, youre the worst, Fleeger shouted. Because the meeting was officially in progress, Mayor Ward quickly called for an end to the meeting as Dr. Eno made his way toward the front of the council chamber. Guests remained in their seats as Dr. Eno and Fleeger exchanged words, at which point Harold Horne, the citys community development coordinator, told Dr. Eno he would not speak to the councilwoman in that tone. Next time youll answer to me, Horne said. JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Councilwoman chastises mayoral candidate, RS resident SETTLEMENT continued from page 1

4 Riverland News, Thursday, September 27, 2012 River views Conservationists should step up, help out with growthIt is apparent to me and other residents that the city leaders here in Dunnellon are mindful of the natural amenities that surround our locale, yet are planning development that is inevitable and even necessary to accommodate the inherent growth of population. There are always going to be nimbys who believe that there must be a freeze on development or the environment is doomed. Strangely, these are the same people that sometime today will walk out of their own front door and get into their car parked on the concrete driveway, drive out of their asphalt paved development community to shop at Wal-Mart to purchase their wants and needs. Up to 10,000 citizens reach retirement age every day in our nation. To many of these retirees, their American dream is comprised of the desires to play golf, fish, go boating, garden and otherwise enjoy the salt and fresh waters of a sub-tropical region. What would be so evil about having more homes built to accommodate more worthy, retired citizens? The proposed developments of Rainbow River Ranch and Blue Run Ranches would add many new smiling faces to our current Dunnellon population, customers to our local businesses, job opportunities and, of course, additional properties to tax. Their impact on the environment, when provided with city services, would be no more than that of Rainbow Springs communities and Juliette Falls, all of which are a golf balls drive away from the head springs and river bank of the Rainbow River. I hope the city of Dunnellon receives the grant money for water lines to accommodate the proposed developments. Every one has a point of view, but Mr. (Nathan) Whitt, candidate for the mayors seat in the coming election, appears rather nave in his report that, Honestly, what else is there? besides the Rainbow River. We have fine and unique eating establishments, and an eclectic historic district that draws hundreds of visitors each month of the calendar. What exists here is an opportunity to further develop Dunnellon into an attractive residential area for more retirees like myself, whose environmental footprint is a rather light one. During any summer weekend, few Dunnellon retirees will leave behind an oil slick of sunscreen and DEET in the river and pulling up grass like the mob of hundreds of visiting tubers will. We dont throw our beer and soda cans out of our vehicles while leaving town. Instead of the naysayers to development spending of their energies in D ue to the expense, and the fact that movies are available so quickly and in so many different ways, we hardly ever get to the theatre anymore. However, Im glad we caught Eat, Pray, Love on the big screen last year, as it immediately became one of my favorites and was able to make me both laugh and cry. It was an autobiographical story written by Elizabeth Gilbert and made into a movie, an adventure of finding oneself using the power of prayer and good food. Now that Ive decided to read the book, Im finding out it goes much deeper than that. Books are always better than the movies, of course, because they can go into more detail. I usually like reading the book first so Im not completely lost while watching it. This time I wasnt lost, only surprised, or maybe I should say shocked. I thought the movie was a lighthearted romp about a woman on a journey. I found myself envying her travels and wishing I could trade places with her and tromp off to exotic places in search of whatever I might find. I wanted to taste the wares of Italy, meet intellectual gurus in India and fall madly in love in Bali. On the big screen, it seemed like such a fun trip. However, what I didnt realize was that this woman was enduring major depression and suicidal thoughts. She didnt take off because she wanted to; she took off because she had to. Her issues had made it impossible to deal with life as she knew it, so she escaped. It brings me to the thought that you certainly cannot judge a book by its cover no pun intended. Whats that saying? Be kind to everyone you meet for everybody is fighting their own battles. Truer words have never been spoken. I thank God that I wake up feeling OK every morning. I naively thought everybody did, until my friend Terri told me otherwise. But when I was in my 30s I learned something that has helped me out more than a hundred times. When a problem arises ask yourself these two questions: Will this matter in 10 years? and Does somebody in this world have it worse off than I do right now? Those two questions have kept me sane, grounded and able to deal with most everything. That and, of course, prayers. Weve all been through horrible stuff. You cannot escape it. I lost my best friend in an accident when we were both just 16 years old. My brother lost a good friend in a horrific motorcycle accident a few years later, and I lost all four of my grandparents much too soon. Nothing compares to the pain of losing my stepson, Erik.

RIVERLAND NEWS OUR VOICE LETTERS JERSEY GIRL THE OTHER GUY I f youve not been to the Pickin Patch the past two years, I can attest as a Midwestern whos seen his share of farmland as far as the eye can see, theres nothing like an afternoon in the field. Especially if youre not the one having to take care of the crops and tend to the land. Certainly, picking your own pumpkin might not seem like a barrel of fun for some. But with two young boys who have an energy level I wish I could tap into daily, there is nothing that brings greater joy. Jackson and Jayden enjoy climbing the hay forts, taking a long hayride and scouring the endless rows of pumpkins for the biggest one. It certainly provides plenty of family memories, fun and picture taking opportunities for one photo-clicking father. The Thomas and Dixons have certainly created a family friendly fixture, in what I would hope will be a fixture in Dunnellon for generations to come a chance for my children to take their children out so a picture-taking grandfather can snap away at memories to cherish. Thats right folks this isnt an opportunity for just young families. The past two years Ive witnessed many grandparents sharing in the joy of helping their grandchildren search for the biggest and best pumpkin in the bunch. Nothing is funnier than a youngster pointing to a 50-pound pumpkin and watching as they try to lift it off the ground and into a wagon only to have their grandfather provide some much needed muscle to finish the task. Of course, my own boys do the same and theres nothing funnier than watching me attempt to lift a 50-pound pumpkin off the ground and into a wagon. Im certain its why Jackson has been so adamant the past few months that I do push-ups with him on a daily basis. It doesnt explain the sit-ups though, because the extra padding in the middle section softens the blows when the boys pounce on my stomach. Perhaps its the reason why so many fathers carry a few extra pounds in the midsection region. Its not because they object to working out, the extra cushion softens the blows. I wish this was one of those times my father had explained a few rules of parenting to me. Instead, I recall the lessons of Ill give you something to cry about; If you dont stop fighting with your brother and sister, Im turning this car around; and the ever present, No were not there yet. Needless to say, if during the course of the next month youre looking for an adventure that will create a lifetime of memories, dont look any further than State Road and the Pickin Patch. Itll certainly give you more to talk about each fall than the search for the mythical Great Pumpkin Linus seeks out each Halloween, because its the great adventure of finding the great pumpkin on your own thatll be a story to share for decades to come. Get your pick on Eat, Pray, Love in your backyard P olitics, oftentimes, are a dirty, vicious never-ending cycle. Its unfortunate that is the case here in Dunnellon. We were certainly flabbergasted and shell shocked at the verbal sparring session recently at the Dunnellon City Council Workshop in which cooler heads simply couldnt prevail. There are many sides to blame. Instead of rehashing whos right, whos wrong and pointing fingers, we instead want to offer solutions. First, we realize theres public unrest about the direction of government, whether its local, county, state or national. We might not have as much say at the state and national level, but certainly at the local levels, our input is needed and warranted. Its our job to question the direction of elected officials. The newspaper has a role in this discourse. It gathers information about policies put into place by elected officials and informs the public about both sides of the issues. We should be able to agree to disagree. Everyone, no matter who that might be, is entitled to an opinion: right, wrong or indifferent. Public officials, or servants if you will, need to do a better job of explaining those policies and having thick enough skin to accept criticism from voters and residents about the policies. Its not about who you are, its about the policies youre putting into place. We, the pubic, have the right to understand why such a policy is being put into place. If we have questions, we ask for answers. Public officials should also be more patient and kind-hearted about those who take the time to ask the questions. Sure, being asked the same question over and over might seem trite, but it is the job of elected officials to answer those questions in detail and with as much transparency as possible. We would encourage the City Council to open the beginning of its meetings with answers to questions citizens want. It clears the air and will set a positive tone that shows youre working for those who put you into office, whether by vote or default. Secondly, remain positive. Dont lose your cool, smile and be courteous. To the public, we ask you not to lose your cool, smile and be courteous as well. There was a point in time in Dunnellons history that not so long ago, residents, business owners and our friends in Rainbow Springs were able to band together and make plans to see Dunnellon thrive and survive. Some where along the way that vision was lost. Thats too bad. Perhaps its time for those parties to come together again, regain the vision it once had to embrace the areas resources and make this a community we can all be proud of. Not one known for contentious lawsuits and public verbal sparring sessions. See LETTER page 5 Audrey Beem We need civil accord, not public discord Jeff Bryan Editor See JERSEY page 5

How about presenting a petition to deny motorized boats access to the Rainbow River? How about limiting the number of weekend tubers on the Rainbow River, such as the limits now imposed on the Ichetukne River? How about forming an environmental education committee that would work with the city to educate new residents as to how to negate their use of fertilizer and chemicals in their backyards and accommodate wildlife with Florida friendly yards and native plants? How about urging new residents to establish lawns/gardens that are genuinely water efficient and require no irrigation like my lawn? Someday, we would hope, all of the feuding will cease and there will be peace here in Dunnellon. Those people with environmental concerns would be a genuine asset if they would join in, work alongside developers as they add new residents to our community to assure that Dunnellon would achieve the status of a growing entity with a track record of genuine environmental protection. I believe our current city leaders and staff are on the path and heading in that direction.

It sure taught me a lot. You cant stop bad things from happening, but you can decide how youre going to handle them. This isnt a story about sadness. Its a story about finding happiness. Most of all its a story about hope. How wonderful it would be if everybody could find happiness right in their own backyard without having to travel across the world to find it? At this age, I seek peace. I love the stillness of the mornings as we sit and watch the hummingbirds, and if Im lucky, I fill my day with smiling faces and kind words. Every year around this time my husband and I go away for a long weekend. He said to me the other day: We really dont need to go anywhere this year. Everything we could possibly want is here. We have paradise right here in our backyard. I have to agree with him. So take the time to smell the roses. Happiness comes from within. Of course, traveling is great too. Bottom line, it all comes down to good eating, heartfelt praying and lots and lots of love. JERSEY continued from page 4 COMMUNITY NEWS

Where in the world did it go? In fact, that is a very good question. Where does the summer go when it leaves? Is there some place that summer, winter, spring and fall go to chill out? When they get there, what in the world are they doing? Someone suggested, and I will not divulge any names only to say they live in the same residence I do, that as a person gets older time goes faster. I absolutely resemble that comment. This past week I finally adjusted myself to my summertime schedule. I do not know about anybody else, but it takes me a long time to get into a new schedule. While I am thinking about it, who in the world invented these seasons? Why didnt they let a good thing go? I would much have preferred that we simply divide our time by day or night. If it is dark, for example, it has to be night. And, if the sun is up and it is shining and bright, it must be day. I could live with something like that. At least I would know what time it really was. I was actually wallowing in a hopeless spirit of despondency. What is a person to do? Then something rather strange happened. One of my friends was playing football and his first game was on a Saturday morning. I thought maybe the distraction might cheer me up a little bit and encourage me to keep on keeping on. I cannot remember the last time I was at a football game. Of course that does not mean too much, I cannot remember what I had for lunch yesterday. It was good to get into a different venue, and air out my soul. Then it hit me. No, not the football, although that might have helped to a certain degree. But a thought hit me, which is 6 Riverland News, Thursday, September 27, 2012 000BR2L Calvary Baptist Temple 21841 S.W.

I had just gotten into the spirit of watching the game when all of a sudden I heard a whistle and a coach yelled, Timeout. At that moment everything stopped. I looked at the clock on the scoreboard and it had stopped. I had forgotten about this little quirk in football. The clock did not start and the game did not commence until the coach yelled, play ball. Or something to that effect. That got me thinking. If they can do that for football, why cant we do that for life? After all, life is far more important than a football game. Who is that coach that yells, Timeout, and everybody stops? What kind of authority does he have? We need to bring this kind of thinking into life in general. It seems to me that everything in life is thought out in great detail except actually living life. Football has been well thought out and is comprised of rules and regulations. Baseball the same. Hockey... Well maybe not so much hockey. Most games are well thought out, have rules to live by, and if something isnt going the way it is supposed to go, the coach has the privilege of yelling Timeout. How many times could I have used this little rule in my life? Wouldnt it be nice to stop life when you have made an inappropriate remark, maybe you said something to your wife that came out the wrong side of your mouth. I have done that many a times. I think it would be rather nice if when I realize what I have just said, to be able to yell Timeout. Then do it over again. The other day one of my checks from my checking account bounced. That would have been a perfect time to yell timeout and redo the whole thing. There are so many things in life that could benefit from this one little thing called timeout. I suggest that we began implementing this into our daily life. After all, our daily life is much more important than a football game, a hockey game, or a baseball game. I think whenever something goes awry we should have the privilege to stop it right in its tracks and do it over again. It does not matter how many times we have to do it over again, we continue doing it over until we get it right. It would make life more exciting if I knew that if I made a mistake I could call Timeout, do a do-over, and make everything right. I think we need to have a very stern conversation with good old Father Time. He is so much a stickler for time marching on. But sometimes you get tired of marching and need to sit down and take a breather. Then sometimes, you need to change the direction in which you are marching. It is not so bad the time marches on but when it needs to turn around and march the other way that is a completely different story. In thinking further along this line, I discovered God already has a Timeout plan. I found it in 1 John 1:9 (KJV), If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. With this in mind, I certainly want to take full advantage of Gods Timeout plan. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P.O. Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

They all win, and the Lady Tigers sure did win their game Sept. 19 against North Marion. First to serve was the Colts. The game began the exact way it would end, with the Lady Tigers on top. Tyra Thomas slaughtered the court with her kills and back sets that helped throw off North Marions overall awareness. Savannah Helton led the team to triumph and threw in a few great tips over the net. Dania Clark pierced the North Marions girls with great spikes that bumped up the scoreboard even more. It was an overall great game for the Junior Varsity Lady Tigers. We won the game because were no longer individuals trying to win a game, Helton said. We are a team that communicates and cares about another. Im very proud of our team and how much spirit and heart that we have for the game and our teammates you wont find another team that GAIGE EVANS/For the Riverland NewsThe Dunnellon JV volleyball team expresses its excitement Sept. 19 after winning their game against North Marion. JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsRyan Molloy lines up a putt Sept. 20 at Juliette Falls in a match against St. John Lutheran. The 17year-old senior leads the Tigers with a nine-hole scoring average of 40. Senior golfer shoots for military academy appointment Ryan Molloy wants to serve. The 17-year-old Dunnellon High School senior certainly has a lot to offer the world, not only as he continues in his last year of high school, but as he ventures off to college and chooses a career. In high school, Molloy stays actively involved in many clubs and activities including: Student Government, Junior Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (JAFROTC), National Honor Society (NHS), Future Business Leaders Association (FBLA) and golf. He does all of this while maintaining a 4.62 (weighted) grade point average, and taking Advanced Placement classes. On the golf team, he is frequently the player with the lowest score and the highest focus. Afterall, he started playing in the Kiwanis Club youth development program, at the age of 8. He has continued to play to this day and has been on the Tigers golf team for the past four years. For college and career, he is looking into the Armed Forces. He intends to study engineering, preferably electrical, but maybe marine or civil. He has applied to the U.S. Tigers JV topples Pirates, 30-16 Three first-half touchdowns, including two on the ground, and a stifling defense paced the Dunnellon High School Junior Varsity football team to its first victory of the season Wednesday, Sept. 19, against Crystal River at Ned Love Field. The Tigers had lost their two of their three games of the season, including two setbacks all to Class 7A schools West Port and Ocala Forest. Their lone victory came against Columbia. From the 38-yard line, sophomore Chase Brattin handed the ball off to Devin Simms, who ran in for the touchdown with 3:39 remaining in the first quarter. The Pirates added a safety in the second quarter, trimming the Tigers lead to 6-2 before Dunnellon responded with a 52-yard touchdown run by Brattin. The Tigers converted their 2-point conversion, pushing their lead to 14-2. Crystal River responded quickly, bringing the ball down the field and scoring on a fourth-and-goal from inside the 1-yard line to trim the lead to 14-8. Dunnellon had an answer though, as Brattin threw a 32-yard strike to receiver Stacin Bishop to set up his Tiger JV quarterback Chase Brattin passes to a receiver Sept. 19 during their victory against Crystal River. The Tigers knocked off the Pirates, 30-16, for their second win of the season. Brattin accounted for two rushing TDs in the win. ARIEL BUCHKO/For the Riverland News Football drops third straight Tigers aim to rebound vs. Raiders GAINESVILLE Dunnellon High Schools bid for a state playoff spot began last Thursday as the Tigers opened their district slate against Gainesville East Side. However, Dunnellon couldnt overcome turnovers and mistakes losing, 22-16, as the Tigers dropped their third straight game after a season-opening victory against Ocala West Port. Taking the opening kick off, Dunnellon (1-3 overall, 0-1 District 5A5) started off with a quick bang, scoring its first touchdown with 7:09 remaining in the opening quarter. Quarterback Jordon Boley capped off the drive, scoring on a secondand-goal from the 6yard line. The extra point was good, giving the Tigers a 7-0 lead. The Rams intitial drive stalled; however, Eastside didnt come away empty handed after a 21-yard field goal trimmed Dunnellons lead to 7-3. Senior Dustin Molina sparked the Tigers to open the second quarter, picking off a pass and returning it 42 yards for a touchdown, giving Dunnellon a 14-3 lead with 11:48 left in the first half. After battling its way down the field, Eastside RACHEL HORNE For the Riverland News Tigers knock of St. John LutheranThe Dunnellon High School golf team is six competitions into its season, and has a record of 3-3. The Tigers latest victory was against St. John Lutheran 181-200 on Thursday, Sept. 20, at Juliette Falls. Junior Bryce Thalacker carded a 41 to lead the Tigers. His performance was followed by seniors Ryan Molloy, 44, and Richie Litterine, 46. Coach John Ravenscroft is impressed with how is team is coming around. Of his returning athletes, he said, Ryan, Bryce and Alex (Nonnemacher) are steady as rocks. Richie and Michael (Beach) are making progress by leaps and bounds. The teams top three have 9-hole averages are: Molloy, 40; Thalacker, 42.75; and Nonnemacher, 49. According to Ravenscroft, the goal for the team is to have a winning season and make a good showing of themselves at Districts.

made it to the 3-yard line as senior Austin Betzer capped the drive with a 3-yard run up the middle. The Rams extra point was no good, but they did trim the Tigers lead to 14-9 before half time. The turnovers in the first half were big, they kind of killed us, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said. In the second half, both Dunnellon and Eastside brawled back and forth trying in an attempt to take advantage of field position and scoring opportunities. But it was the Rams who were able to take advantage of pair of fumble recoveries and a turnover on downs. On fourth-and-4 for Dunnellon, Eastside recovered a Tigers fumble, which paved the way for the Rams Corey Carrol 15-yard touchdown reception with 4:58 left in the third quarter. Eastsides extra point try failed again; however, the Rams found themselves with their first lead of the game, 15-14. On the Tigers ensuing drive, Dunnellon turned the ball over on downs, failing to convert a fourth-dwon attempt. With the ball back in Eastsides hands, sophomore Sam McGinnis scored on a 23-yard run on a second-and-8 play with 11:49 left in fourth quarter. The Rams extra point try was good, giving Eastside a 22-14 lead. After a fumble recovery from sophomore Cole Fagan, the Tigers turned the ball over themselves. After forcing the Rams to punt, Dunnellon fumbled again on a third-and6 play; however, Dunnellon Dalwin Landrum picked up a safety, trimming the Tigers deficit to 22-16 and giving Dunnellon a chance to score. The Tigers did just that, only to see their touchdown called back on a penalty on a third-down play. Two plays later, on a fourth-and-goal, a Boley pass attempt fell short as time expired. We played harder Thursday night than we have the whole season, Beasley said. That last play where our touchdown got called back was the best play of the night. In order to change our streak, we will keep doing what we do and well battle through it. Next week will be a tough game, but we will play strong. Dunnellon plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday at South Sumter. Merchant Marine Academy, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy and West Point. If he goes to a standard university one day, he is interested in the University of Florida or Florida State University, and joining the ROTC programs there his freshmen year. I chose the military because they offer some of the best education for an engineering degree, while guaranteeing you a job, a paid education, and a paycheck while you study, Molloy said. The branches that most meet his fancy are the Coast Guard or Air Force, but he will serve wherever he is accepted. Molloy knows he certainly has his work cut out for him when it comes to military academy requirements; but with his academic achievements he shouldnt have too much trouble. He has to maintain a 3.5 or above GPA, a varsity letter in sports, be active in school clubs, have all of his medical records to send in and have a congressional appointment (required by four of the academies). Each congress member can only support two students, so it is pertinent he excels in his interview. Medical records are hard to gather since you are required to have every medical paper to send, said Molloy. He looks forward to the challenge ahead with great anticipation and optimism, and understands exactly what each college is looking for. They want a person who is well-rounded and patriotic and has the willingness to serve and better their country, Molloy said. You have to be in the top 10 percent of your class. They only want to see you have put in an effort, they dont care that you passed an AP class, but that you attempted it. They are building leaders of their country, so they want the best of the best. works harder! The team collaborated all of their individual skills to create a winning lineup. Organization, fortitude, and what the teams calls swag, have kicked off a new beginning for a season which began with a rough start. These girls work very hard and the only thing they did different this past game was communicate as a team and have faith in their ability, said Junior Varsity coach Dallas Towns. It seems like the group has finally discovered their full potential. Added player Ashley Knerr: We talked to each other, we wanted to be there. We had good passes and some good kills we played like an actually team that game. DHSs JV volleyball team has really stepped up and shown that they have what it takes. Most JV teams dont work as hard as we do, Towns said. They have a lot of heart and thats what is going to keep us fighting until we get to where we need to be. On the other hand, the varsity team is still seeking its first victory. Individual stats are getting higher and higher while the scores stay the same. Both the varsity and junior varsity teams play against Citrus, Nature Coast and Crystal River this week. own 17-yard touchdown run, his second of the contest. The Tigers converted their two-point attempt, extending its lead to 22-8 with 4:05 remaining in the opening half. We really sustained a drive this game, Dunnellon junior varsity coach Archie Smith said. The Tigers Andre Hairston started the second half intercepting a Crystal River pass, setting up Simms second rushing touchdown of the game. On secondand-goal, Simms score and two-point conversion pushed the Dunnellon lead to 30-8. The Tigers turned the ball over twice in the second half, the second of which lead to Crystal Rivers second touchdown of the game, but making little difference in the outcome. Our defense and offense did a good job tonight, Smith said. Our offense needs to be more consistent. Even though we have a 2-2 record, it doesnt mean anything. I am more focused on bringing up the players level. Dunnellon plays at 7 p.m. today against South Sumter at Ned Love Field. It will be a good game tonight, they can play a full four quarters, Smith said.

started Dunnellon on a real road to recovery. Thank you! McAndrew touted Algieres accomplishments of acquiring additional water utilities; the implementation of Greenlight Dunnellon; annexation of Blue Run Ranch; improved intergovernmental relations between state, county and city; and improved community relations through the school-blast and renaming of City Beach to Dinkins Park, to name a few. As an area to improve upon, McAndrew cited the relations with Rainbow Springs Utility customers. Only time and Ms. Algieres patience and peacemaker skills will effectively deal with this issue. McAndrew credited Algiere for a patient persistent job. Dunnellon is seeing great things already, were the talk of the League of Cities, she wrote. In evaluating her skills to continue to improve quality services to citizens, McAndrew wrote, a quick observation of our roads, medians, sidewalks and city properties is all one needs to see that our city is much better off than it was three years ago. Mayor Fred Ward scores totaled 268 and Councilman Dennis Evans gave Algiere 244 points out of a possible 280. Ward touted her accomplishments with the Rainbow River Ranch settlement; the purchase of Rainbow Springs, Juliette Falls and Rio Vista utility systems; negotiating the financial package to establish Greenlight Communications; and the ability to deliver a budget with a half-mil reduction. There are no major issues that need to be addressed in this evaluation, Ward wrote. Any suggestions can be made one-on-one with Ms. Algiere. Her willingness to respond to suggestions is still one of her greatest strengths. The fiscal year 2013 budget was approved by the Council on Monday night as officials set the millage rate at 6.8013, a half point lower than the 2013 rollback rate. Overall, Mayor Ward pointed out, the decrease equals a 6 percent drop in property taxes for property owners compared to a year ago. All told, the citys general fund budget for the upcoming fiscal year, which starts Oct. 1, will be $3,662,792. The citys water enterprise fund budget will jump 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 will increase from $2,030,870 in 2012 to 3,298,180 for fiscal year 2013. According to the proposed budget, revenues are increasing 349.8 percent, from $351,035 last year to $1,578,830. The City Council did approve water and sewer increases to the tune of 5.75 percent and 6.25 percent, respectively. The increases are 1 percent less than proposed a year ago. The council also approved changes in the way developments with one master meter, such as hotels and Dunnellon Mobile Park, will be charged for their water usage. The budget for Greenlight Communications is increasing to $4,693,599 after the council approved it Monday. A year ago, Greenlight had a budget of $2,749,218, but the FY 2013 budget shows a projected revenue stream of $4,693,599. Thus far, the citys 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 due in November to Regions Bank in Orlando. Former Councilman Ron McAndrew, whose wife Lynne holds a seat on the council, praised the efforts of the City Council and particularly the performance of Algiere. Thank you, he told Algiere for her commitment to the city of Dunnellon. On Thursday, Sept. 13, the LGA played a game of Low Gross/Low Net. First Low Gross: Toni Bulson.

RAINBOW SPRINGS LGA In other action, the Council: Authorized the submission of the application for a community development block grant. The grant would be used to a run a 12-inch water main from the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport along the south side of County Road 484. Overall, the project is estimated to cost slightly more than $1.2 million. The grant itself would cover $650,000 of the cost while the city would contribute up to $600,250. The deadline to submit the grant application is Oct. 1. Approved the first reading of Ordinance 2012-07 by title only regarding the transmittal of comp plan amendment CPA2012-13 for Boger Farms. The property, recently annexed into the city, is currently zoned rural by the county; however, the city will zone the property agricultural, because it is the closest zoning regulation to what the county offers. Approved a $35,000 donation from the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) to the Boys & Girls Club for the purpose of installation of the sewer lift station and force main. Approved three purchase requests: The Council OKd an expenditure of $18,877 for Radio Read Meters from Single Source to replenish the citys supply.

Because of their faith and to praise God for the successes of the Pickin Patch, the Thomas and the Dixons select a Bible verse each fall and make a sticker to attach to each pumpkin they sell. This years verse is 2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight. We make this a springboard for our faith, Thomas said. We have the opportunity to witness to thousands and thousands that come through the property. God has his hand in this. Admission is once again $2 for those 4 and older; children 3 and younger are free. The entrance to the Patch will change this year, because of the larger amount of acreage used. Normally, visitors could gain access off of Robinson Road, but this year, theyll have to use State Road 40 west, Thomas said. The entrance is directly across from the city water tower and signs will be posted, Thomas said. The address is 11000 Rolling Road. More than anything, what cheers Thomas are the positive responses about offering an experience the whole family can enjoy, he said. Thats what we want more than anything, he explained. What weve turned into, what weve morphed into, is people can actually ring in fall. They can help ring in the fall. The hayrides, the corn, the pumpkins, its a fall experience. People have embraced it. If it wasnt something they wanted or desired, they wouldnt be coming out. The people have been very supportive.

Kindergarten, firstand second-grade students will take their pictures Oct. 8 while third-, fourthand fifthgrade students will have their pictures taken Oct. 9. All students and staff will have their picture taken for the school yearbook at no charge. Your child will bring home the picture ordering packet with the different packages available to purchase on a pre-pay basis if you wish to purchase them. This is a great, inexpensive Christmas gift for grandparents and other family members. Another idea is to use one of the smaller pictures to make an annual dated ornament for your Christmas tree, which you can present to your child when they move out to start their own adult home. Dont forget to buy your Coupon for Education booklets it is a great deal at $15 each. Remember, most of the money raised stays right here at Romeo to help us purchase items used at our school. Wow!

On every General Mills product ranging from cereals to yogurts, you can find one of these box tops worth 10 cents. You would help Romeo earn cash for school supplies and equipment.

Dunnellon Elementary School has been very busy since students returned to school. Due to class sizes, we had to add three new teachers one each in kindergarten, first and second grades. We also added a new art teacher, Ms. Katrina Vitkus. We had a Book Fair and two Open Houses the week of Sept. 10 through Sept. 14. The Title I van visited our campus with ideas and hands-on make and take activities for parents to help their children be better students. We also had fourthand fifthgrade classes visit the Silver River Museum. They learned about ecosystems affecting our planet. The new art teacher at DES is Katrina Vitkus, she was previously teaching art at Reddick-Collier Elementary. Ms. Vitkus enjoys helping students realize that art is all around us and incorporates science, math and reading skills into art lessons. Art students are currently working on projects for the FAFO Art Show Oct. 27 to 28. Ms. Vitkus lives on a small farm, rides horses and is happy to be working in Dunnellon. Nadine Tull received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Bethel College in Mishawaka, Ind., in 1973.She began teaching third grade at a private school in West Palm Beach, where she taught third grade for seven years. She then taught fourth grade at Pahokee Elementary in Pahokee for three years. To enjoy the country life, Mrs. Tull and her husband, Ray, relocated to Dunnellon in 1989 where she taught first grade for one year and third for two years at Dunnellon Elementary. Then, Mrs. Tull was asked to teach at the newly built Romeo Elementary in 1992. She taught third grade for one year and then taught four grade for 19 years. During that time, she received her Masters Degree in ESOL from the University of Florida in 2005; was selected as Romeo Teacher of the Year in 2010-11; and received three grants from the Public School Foundation. She enjoys reading, singing at Christian and Country events, and helping abandoned animals. We welcome these new people and returning ones to Dunnellon Elementary. Ms. Jennifer Stuart reports on our little ones: Kindergarteners have been working hard to build their stamina in the act of reading to self. Every day, they try to add just a little bit more time on to how long they can read to themselves. In just a few weeks of school, they know that there are many ways to read a book, even when they dont know the words. They are trying very hard to learn their letters and read through a book using the pictures to help. We have a strong generation of readers coming up.

Riverland News, Thursday, September 27, 2012 15 FAMILY FEATURES P otatoes are the ultimate comfort food, but a few twists on classic side dishes like mashed potatoes, salads and casseroles can take potatoes to a whole new level. With so many delicious types available year-round, its easy to create exciting and nutritious side dishes that can be the highlight of any meal. Heres what you need to know about the seven different potato types to help you start experimenting with different colors, textures, cooking methods and flavor additions: Fingerlings These small, slender fingersized potatoes range from two to four inches in length. They come in a wide range of skin and flesh colors and most possess a firm, waxy texture, which makes them ideal for potato salads. Pan-frying enhances their robust flavor and showcases their wonderful nutty or buttery tastes. Petites Petites share the same flavor and texture as their full-sized cousins, but their flavors are actually more concentrated, and they cook more quickly. Petites can be found in red, white, yellow, brown and purple, and make delicious roasted potatoes and potato salads. Purples/Blues Purple/blue potatoes have a deep purple skin with flesh that ranges from purple to almost white. The moist, firm flesh retains its shape and adds rich colors and a mild, yet distinctly nutty flavor to tossed salads. They are also sensational roasted. Reds Reds are widely known for their rosy red skin and white flesh. The moist, waxy flesh stays firm and flavorful through out cooking, making it ideal for roasting. The slightly sweet, always-tender texture comple ments any dish, and the vibrant red skin adds appealing color and pizzazz to potato salad, soups and stews. Russets Russets are characterized by a brown, netted skin and white flesh. The delicate potato flavor and grainy texture of a baked russet creates light and fluffy mashed potatoes and crispy pan-fried potatoes. Whites This all-purpose potato has a white flesh and white (sometimes light tan) skin. They are slightly dense and creamy, with a subtly sweet flavor. Their delicate, thin skins add just the right amount of texture to mashed potatoes without the need for peeling. Grilling whites brings out a more full-bodied flavor; or use them in soups and stews. Yellows This type boasts golden skin and golden flesh. Grilling gives them a crispy skin, which enhances the dense and buttery texture, and gives them a slightly sweet, caramelized flavor. Their naturally smooth texture also lends itself well to lighter versions of baked or roasted potatoes.

Report: Man had 400-plus grams of marijuana in possesion A 19-year-old Clearwater man faces charges of possession of marijuana, more than 20 grams, with the intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia after law enforcement authorities discovered the young man had more than 1 pound of narcotics in his possession Saturday in the parking lot at City Hall, according to an arrest report from the Dunnellon Police Department. The report stated Joshua K. Hawkins was driving a green Ford truck along River Drive, turning right on U.S. 41 when officer Adam Robinson, who was conducting traffic enforcement in the area, observed that the vehicle registration was out of date. Robinson then initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle, which stopped in the parking lot of Dunnellon City Hall. According to the repot, Robinson made contact with Hawkins and requested his personal information and advised him of the reason for the traffic stop. Hawkins stated he was unaware of the expired registration. Mayor, Algiere talk new contract Council OKs 2013 budgetCity Manager Lisa Algiere was brought aboard three years ago to lead a city in a state of flux and mismanagement, to bring about changes and improvement in the community. The Dunnellon City Council praised her efforts, vision and guidance at the recent Dunnellon City Council Workshop. Now, Mayor Fred Ward and Algiere are in discussions for a new three-year contract to be presented at its next meeting. Her evaluation from four of the five Council members Erik Collop opted to not provide an evaluation because he had only served a month when the process was due was nothing less than stellar. The council graded her in four areas: personal and professional skills; provides effective support to council; continues to improve quality services to citizens; and supervise city operations. Councilwomen Penny Fleeger and Lynne McAndrew gave Algiere the highest point totals in their respective evaluations. Fleeger, in her rankings for all four categories, scored Algiere 278.5 points out of a possible 280 points, while McAndrew gave her 278 points. In Fleegers evaluation she wrote, Despite rumor to the contrary, Lisa is looking out for the citizens of Dunnellon with guidance and complete oversight by Council. She added her knowledge, kindness and abilities have JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Pickin Patch, a developing tradition, opens Saturday Theyre back, and ripe for the picking. For the third straight year, the Pickin Patch is set to open its gates Saturday, pull the tractor for old-fashion hayrides and allow thousands of guests the opportunity to enjoy what has quickly become a fall tradition for families throughout the region. The Pickin Patch opens at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, and will be open until Oct. 28. The hours of operation are 3 to 7 p.m. Fridays; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturdays; and noon to 7 p.m. Sundays. What started out three years ago as an idea and prayer has grown well beyond what Scott and Sarah Jo Thomas and Steve and Andrea Dixon could have ever envisioned. In 2010, the couples planted what seemed a meager 6 acres of pumpkins. The response was so overwhelming they added three additional acres a year ago as more than an estimated 8,000 people converged on the property. Obviously, when we started, it was next to unheard of to grow pumpkins here because of violent swing in weather, the humidity, the heat, the disease, the insects, Thomas said of the start three years ago. We were even discouraged by some to not even try. Both the Dixons and us felt very compelled that this was a direction God was leading us. Weve been surprised in every facet of our business, not by just people, just the comments they make to us, such as Weve made this part of our tradition, Thomas explained. Just the sheer turnout, friends are telling friends, we couldnt be more blessed. Theres no way we thought this would grow like it did. We anticipated a little year-to-year growth, but theres no way we could envision the magnitude of the growth weve had thus far. This year, the size of the patch has grown to a whooping 13 1/2 acres of pumpkins, Indian corn, decorative gourds and pumpkins as well as sunflowers. In addition to the larger swath of goodies for families to choose from, therell be a small corn maze, hay fort, hayrides and plenty of Eno wants battle in court and has boards full backing JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See SETTLEMENT page 3 Martha Schulz observes the view throughout the Pickin Patch after she plucked her own Sunflowers a year ago.

While speaking with Hawkins, Robinson detected the odor of marijuana emanating from inside the vehicle. Robinson asked Hawkins if he would consent to a search of the vehicle; Hawkins responded yes. Upon conducting the search of the vehicle, the report stated, Robinson observed a black pipe in Hawkins backpack and a marijuana cigarette (0.6 grams) under the cars front seat. According to the report, Robinson then located two large vacuum-sealed bags containing marijuana behind the drivers seat, along with a Seal-aMeal vacuum bagging system. One bag weighed 87.6 grams, the report stated, while the other bag weighed 228 grams. The report stated Robinson then located another large plastic container under the drivers seat, which contained marijuana totaling 159.4 grams, and plastic bags. Robinson conducted presumptive field tests on the marijuana, marijuana cigarette and the residue inside the black pipe, which all tested positive for the presence of marijuana. Hawkins was transported to the Marion County Jail. His bond was set at $5,500. Hawkins bonded out Sunday from the Marion County Jail.

signed off on the newest agreement and doesnt plan to, said Dr. Burt Eno, PhD, the president of the environmental group. We fully plan to go back to court, Eno said. Dr. Eno alleges the current agreement was done behind closed doors without presence of the RRC. They conspired behind closed doors, he said. We were taken advantage of. The pact with the city, Dodd, the DEO and DEP was approved Monday night by the City Council. That deal remains contingent on a judges approval; however, Dr. Eno said the RRC will object to the court signing off on it. A hearing will be requested, he said. I thought we made a good pitch. Dr. Eno said citizens dont fully understand the financial ramifications theyll be subjected to if the deal is approved by the courts. Currently, the city has spent more than $600,000 in legal fees since Dodd originally filed his lawsuit. We want to see a battle in court, Dr. Eno said. My board, 100 percent, feels that way. According to the deal, the agreement does not become final until: (A) the plat is recorded, and (B) the settlement agreement is approved by the Circuit Court as provided in 70.001, F.S., and the time to appeal has run, or, if appealed, when a decision is rendered which affirms the legality of the agreement. When the agreement becomes final, the property owners and the city will file voluntary dismissals of all pending claims against each other. The deal, if granted by a judge, stated the site design properly reflects the importance of the protection of the critical environmental and natural habitat areas of the property. Some of the these environmentally friendly design features include large, contiguous greenway trails, neighborhoods traversable by foot, a variety of housing choices and a protective buffer along the Rainbow River. According to the deal, the property owners will place a protective buffer along the riverfront of the Rainbow River. As used in this agreement, the term protective buffer means the area along the riverfront measured landward 100 feet from the ordinary high-water line or to the landward extent of the existing railroad berm, whichever distance is greater. Plat approval will require the protective buffer setback as noted above and a 25-foot setback from a jurisdictional wetland delineation line for the primary residential structure on each waterfront residential lot. All residential structures on non-riverfront lots will also be set back 25 feet from any jurisdictional wetland delineation lines. Within the protective buffer, the only structures permitted shall be docks, walkways, footpaths and gazebo-type structures. No residential structures may be located within the protective buffer and no gazebo may be converted to a residential structure. The agreement states the development of this project shall be subject to the requirement that all structures shall be connected to a central sewer system and an approved public or private central water system as to be outlined in a future Utility Services Agreement. The deal, agreed to by the city, DEO, DEP and Dodd, states the property owners recognize the city does not have sufficient water or wastewater capacity to serve the project at full buildout (349 homes and a 100,000-square-foot business district) without significant infrastructure improvements. To establish water and wastewater concurrency, the property owners agree to the following: Equivalent Residential Connection (ERC) is defined as: One ERC wastewater is equal to 300 gallons per day for wastewater and one ERC potable water is equal to 350 gallons per day for potable water at average daily flows. Wastewater impact fee: The wastewater impact fee per ERC is $1,805. Potable water impact fee: Per city ordinance, water impact fees are $100 per fixture unit and, for the purposes of this agreement, each 15-residential unit is assumed to have 12 fixture units. Therefore the potable water impact fee per ERC is $1,200. Potable water: The city engineer is currently doing a water system study for the city to determine the condition and capacity of the existing city water system. As an outcome of that study, the city will notify the property owners if it is found that any water capacity exists. At that time, the property owners will have the right to reserve ERC capacity by paying $1,200 per ERC. The property owners understand that the estimated cost associated with the construction of a water facility, sized to provide potable water and fire flow for the project, is $850,000. Furthermore, the agreement states, the property owners understand that prior to developing any phase of the project either: The city has existing capacity to serve the planned phase and the property owners will reserve the capacity by paying the appropriate impact fee. The city has constructed a new water facility and the property owners will reserve the required capacity for the planned phase by paying the appropriate impact fees. Property owners will construct a new water facility. Upon completion of such a facility, will transfer to the city, all rights to the facility as agreed upon in a future utility services agreement between the parties and in turn will receive credits as noted. The property owners have identified a 1-plusacre site for the construction of a new water facility for the project or regional facility. If it is determined by DEP that the site identified is not suitable for any reason, then the property owners will make a contribution of $50,000 to the city toward the purchase of an alternative site. The terms and condition of this contribution will be addressed in the future utility services agreement. The city may decide to construct a regional water facility, which it has estimated may cost $1.6 million. If the timing for the construction of this regional water facility corresponds with the time frame for the development of the project, the property owners and the city will endeavor to pool their funds as earmarked for their independent water facility needs and build the regional facility to serve the project and the city public service territory. The terms and conditions of this partnership will be addressed in a future Utilities Services agreement between the parties.Riverland News, Thursday, September 27, 2012 3 A member of the Florida Press Association352-489-2731 352-489-6593 (Fax)The Riverland News serves Dunnellon and the surrounding areas: Blue Cove, Chatmire, Hills of Ocala, Lake Tropicana, Rainbows End, Rainbow Lakes Estates, All the Rainbow Springs Area, Rio Vista and Vogt Springs.The Riverland News is delivered on Thursday to subscribers by our carriers and mail.

As Whitt wrapped up his comments and the meeting seemed head for closure, Fleegers patience ran short. Whitt had called out Mayor Fred Ward for calling Mondays public hearing regarding the settlement about the Bert Harris lawsuit a courtesy to the residents. A courtesy? Whitt questioned. I believe its in the best interest of the city to let the residents have a voice. Theyre frustrated. Whitt questioned the decision to seek the grant funding to run a water line from the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport west to Dunnellon Heights to improve water pressure there as well as in Blue Cove, and not to repair the citys aging water line along U.S. 41. If the grant funding is acquired, the city would have the water line run on the south side of the road, not the north side where proposed subdivisions Blue Run Ranches and Rainbow River Ranch are planned. Lets focus on what the city needs, Whitt said. Lets fix the town. Fleeger pointed to the recently adopted fiscal year 2013 budget, which included a twoyear plan to replace the aging water line along U.S. 41, before addressing Whitts comments. If you want facts, look at what weve done, she said. Weve already decided how to fix it. Im tired of having people come in here and not knowing the facts. This is not the place for you to do your campaigning. Im tired of the (expletive) and moaning. You dont know a damn thing about what were doing. If youd come to the meetings regularly, youd know what we have planned. During her outburst, Rainbow Springs resident Dr. Burt Eno, PhD, chuckled from the back of the chamber. Dr. Eno, youre the worst, Fleeger shouted. Because the meeting was officially in progress, Mayor Ward quickly called for an end to the meeting as Dr. Eno made his way toward the front of the council chamber. Guests remained in their seats as Dr. Eno and Fleeger exchanged words, at which point Harold Horne, the citys community development coordinator, told Dr. Eno he would not speak to the councilwoman in that tone. Next time youll answer to me, Horne said. JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Councilwoman chastises mayoral candidate, RS resident SETTLEMENT continued from page 1

4 Riverland News, Thursday, September 27, 2012 River views Conservationists should step up, help out with growthIt is apparent to me and other residents that the city leaders here in Dunnellon are mindful of the natural amenities that surround our locale, yet are planning development that is inevitable and even necessary to accommodate the inherent growth of population. There are always going to be nimbys who believe that there must be a freeze on development or the environment is doomed. Strangely, these are the same people that sometime today will walk out of their own front door and get into their car parked on the concrete driveway, drive out of their asphalt paved development community to shop at Wal-Mart to purchase their wants and needs. Up to 10,000 citizens reach retirement age every day in our nation. To many of these retirees, their American dream is comprised of the desires to play golf, fish, go boating, garden and otherwise enjoy the salt and fresh waters of a sub-tropical region. What would be so evil about having more homes built to accommodate more worthy, retired citizens? The proposed developments of Rainbow River Ranch and Blue Run Ranches would add many new smiling faces to our current Dunnellon population, customers to our local businesses, job opportunities and, of course, additional properties to tax. Their impact on the environment, when provided with city services, would be no more than that of Rainbow Springs communities and Juliette Falls, all of which are a golf balls drive away from the head springs and river bank of the Rainbow River. I hope the city of Dunnellon receives the grant money for water lines to accommodate the proposed developments. Every one has a point of view, but Mr. (Nathan) Whitt, candidate for the mayors seat in the coming election, appears rather nave in his report that, Honestly, what else is there? besides the Rainbow River. We have fine and unique eating establishments, and an eclectic historic district that draws hundreds of visitors each month of the calendar. What exists here is an opportunity to further develop Dunnellon into an attractive residential area for more retirees like myself, whose environmental footprint is a rather light one. During any summer weekend, few Dunnellon retirees will leave behind an oil slick of sunscreen and DEET in the river and pulling up grass like the mob of hundreds of visiting tubers will. We dont throw our beer and soda cans out of our vehicles while leaving town. Instead of the naysayers to development spending of their energies in Due to the expense, and the fact that movies are available so quickly and in so many different ways, we hardly ever get to the theatre anymore. However, Im glad we caught Eat, Pray, Love on the big screen last year, as it immediately became one of my favorites and was able to make me both laugh and cry. It was an autobiographical story written by Elizabeth Gilbert and made into a movie, an adventure of finding oneself using the power of prayer and good food. Now that Ive decided to read the book, Im finding out it goes much deeper than that. Books are always better than the movies, of course, because they can go into more detail. I usually like reading the book first so Im not completely lost while watching it. This time I wasnt lost, only surprised, or maybe I should say shocked. I thought the movie was a lighthearted romp about a woman on a journey. I found myself envying her travels and wishing I could trade places with her and tromp off to exotic places in search of whatever I might find. I wanted to taste the wares of Italy, meet intellectual gurus in India and fall madly in love in Bali. On the big screen, it seemed like such a fun trip. However, what I didnt realize was that this woman was enduring major depression and suicidal thoughts. She didnt take off because she wanted to; she took off because she had to. Her issues had made it impossible to deal with life as she knew it, so she escaped. It brings me to the thought that you certainly cannot judge a book by its cover no pun intended. Whats that saying? Be kind to everyone you meet for everybody is fighting their own battles. Truer words have never been spoken. I thank God that I wake up feeling OK every morning. I naively thought everybody did, until my friend Terri told me otherwise. But when I was in my 30s I learned something that has helped me out more than a hundred times. When a problem arises ask yourself these two questions: Will this matter in 10 years? and Does somebody in this world have it worse off than I do right now? Those two questions have kept me sane, grounded and able to deal with most everything. That and, of course, prayers. Weve all been through horrible stuff. You cannot escape it. I lost my best friend in an accident when we were both just 16 years old. My brother lost a good friend in a horrific motorcycle accident a few years later, and I lost all four of my grandparents much too soon. Nothing compares to the pain of losing my stepson, Erik.

RIVERLAND NEWS OUR VOICE LETTERS JERSEY GIRL THE OTHER GUY If youve not been to the Pickin Patch the past two years, I can attest as a Midwestern whos seen his share of farmland as far as the eye can see, theres nothing like an afternoon in the field. Especially if youre not the one having to take care of the crops and tend to the land. Certainly, picking your own pumpkin might not seem like a barrel of fun for some. But with two young boys who have an energy level I wish I could tap into daily, there is nothing that brings greater joy. Jackson and Jayden enjoy climbing the hay forts, taking a long hayride and scouring the endless rows of pumpkins for the biggest one. It certainly provides plenty of family memories, fun and picture taking opportunities for one photo-clicking father. The Thomas and Dixons have certainly created a family friendly fixture, in what I would hope will be a fixture in Dunnellon for generations to come a chance for my children to take their children out so a picture-taking grandfather can snap away at memories to cherish. Thats right folks this isnt an opportunity for just young families. The past two years Ive witnessed many grandparents sharing in the joy of helping their grandchildren search for the biggest and best pumpkin in the bunch. Nothing is funnier than a youngster pointing to a 50-pound pumpkin and watching as they try to lift it off the ground and into a wagon only to have their grandfather provide some much needed muscle to finish the task. Of course, my own boys do the same and theres nothing funnier than watching me attempt to lift a 50-pound pumpkin off the ground and into a wagon. Im certain its why Jackson has been so adamant the past few months that I do push-ups with him on a daily basis. It doesnt explain the sit-ups though, because the extra padding in the middle section softens the blows when the boys pounce on my stomach. Perhaps its the reason why so many fathers carry a few extra pounds in the midsection region. Its not because they object to working out, the extra cushion softens the blows. I wish this was one of those times my father had explained a few rules of parenting to me. Instead, I recall the lessons of Ill give you something to cry about; If you dont stop fighting with your brother and sister, Im turning this car around; and the ever present, No were not there yet. Needless to say, if during the course of the next month youre looking for an adventure that will create a lifetime of memories, dont look any further than State Road and the Pickin Patch. Itll certainly give you more to talk about each fall than the search for the mythical Great Pumpkin Linus seeks out each Halloween, because its the great adventure of finding the great pumpkin on your own thatll be a story to share for decades to come. Get your pick on Eat, Pray, Love in your backyard Politics, oftentimes, are a dirty, vicious never-ending cycle. Its unfortunate that is the case here in Dunnellon. We were certainly flabbergasted and shell shocked at the verbal sparring session recently at the Dunnellon City Council Workshop in which cooler heads simply couldnt prevail. There are many sides to blame. Instead of rehashing whos right, whos wrong and pointing fingers, we instead want to offer solutions. First, we realize theres public unrest about the direction of government, whether its local, county, state or national. We might not have as much say at the state and national level, but certainly at the local levels, our input is needed and warranted. Its our job to question the direction of elected officials. The newspaper has a role in this discourse. It gathers information about policies put into place by elected officials and informs the public about both sides of the issues. We should be able to agree to disagree. Everyone, no matter who that might be, is entitled to an opinion: right, wrong or indifferent. Public officials, or servants if you will, need to do a better job of explaining those policies and having thick enough skin to accept criticism from voters and residents about the policies. Its not about who you are, its about the policies youre putting into place. We, the pubic, have the right to understand why such a policy is being put into place. If we have questions, we ask for answers. Public officials should also be more patient and kind-hearted about those who take the time to ask the questions. Sure, being asked the same question over and over might seem trite, but it is the job of elected officials to answer those questions in detail and with as much transparency as possible. We would encourage the City Council to open the beginning of its meetings with answers to questions citizens want. It clears the air and will set a positive tone that shows youre working for those who put you into office, whether by vote or default. Secondly, remain positive. Dont lose your cool, smile and be courteous. To the public, we ask you not to lose your cool, smile and be courteous as well. There was a point in time in Dunnellons history that not so long ago, residents, business owners and our friends in Rainbow Springs were able to band together and make plans to see Dunnellon thrive and survive. Some where along the way that vision was lost. Thats too bad. Perhaps its time for those parties to come together again, regain the vision it once had to embrace the areas resources and make this a community we can all be proud of.

How about presenting a petition to deny motorized boats access to the Rainbow River? How about limiting the number of weekend tubers on the Rainbow River, such as the limits now imposed on the Ichetukne River? How about forming an environmental education committee that would work with the city to educate new residents as to how to negate their use of fertilizer and chemicals in their backyards and accommodate wildlife with Florida friendly yards and native plants? How about urging new residents to establish lawns/gardens that are genuinely water efficient and require no irrigation like my lawn? Someday, we would hope, all of the feuding will cease and there will be peace here in Dunnellon. Those people with environmental concerns would be a genuine asset if they would join in, work alongside developers as they add new residents to our community to assure that Dunnellon would achieve the status of a growing entity with a track record of genuine environmental protection. I believe our current city leaders and staff are on the path and heading in that direction.Janis Cubbage DunnellonRiverland News, Thursday, September 27, 2012 5 000CDP7 SENIOR MENU (55 & Older) Available Daily FOR LUNCH & DINNER 000CK0N FRIDAY FISH FRY $9.99 All You Can Eat Deep Fried Fish with Choice of Potato.

It sure taught me a lot. You cant stop bad things from happening, but you can decide how youre going to handle them. This isnt a story about sadness. Its a story about finding happiness. Most of all its a story about hope. How wonderful it would be if everybody could find happiness right in their own backyard without having to travel across the world to find it? At this age, I seek peace. I love the stillness of the mornings as we sit and watch the hummingbirds, and if Im lucky, I fill my day with smiling faces and kind words. Every year around this time my husband and I go away for a long weekend. He said to me the other day: We really dont need to go anywhere this year. Everything we could possibly want is here. We have paradise right here in our backyard. I have to agree with him. So take the time to smell the roses. Happiness comes from within. Of course, traveling is great too. Bottom line, it all comes down to good eating, heartfelt praying and lots and lots of love. JERSEY continued from page 4 COMMUNITY NEWS

Where in the world did it go? In fact, that is a very good question. Where does the summer go when it leaves? Is there some place that summer, winter, spring and fall go to chill out? When they get there, what in the world are they doing? Someone suggested, and I will not divulge any names only to say they live in the same residence I do, that as a person gets older time goes faster. I absolutely resemble that comment. This past week I finally adjusted myself to my summertime schedule. I do not know about anybody else, but it takes me a long time to get into a new schedule. While I am thinking about it, who in the world invented these seasons? Why didnt they let a good thing go? I would much have preferred that we simply divide our time by day or night. If it is dark, for example, it has to be night. And, if the sun is up and it is shining and bright, it must be day. I could live with something like that. At least I would know what time it really was. I was actually wallowing in a hopeless spirit of despondency. What is a person to do? Then something rather strange happened. One of my friends was playing football and his first game was on a Saturday morning. I thought maybe the distraction might cheer me up a little bit and encourage me to keep on keeping on. I cannot remember the last time I was at a football game. Of course that does not mean too much, I cannot remember what I had for lunch yesterday. It was good to get into a different venue, and air out my soul. Then it hit me. No, not the football, although that might have helped to a certain degree. But a thought hit me, which is6 Riverland News, Thursday, September 27, 2012 000BR2L Calvary Baptist Temple 21841 S.W.

I had just gotten into the spirit of watching the game when all of a sudden I heard a whistle and a coach yelled, Timeout. At that moment everything stopped. I looked at the clock on the scoreboard and it had stopped. I had forgotten about this little quirk in football. The clock did not start and the game did not commence until the coach yelled, play ball. Or something to that effect. That got me thinking. If they can do that for football, why cant we do that for life? After all, life is far more important than a football game. Who is that coach that yells, Timeout, and everybody stops? What kind of authority does he have? We need to bring this kind of thinking into life in general. It seems to me that everything in life is thought out in great detail except actually living life. Football has been well thought out and is comprised of rules and regulations. Baseball the same. Hockey... Well maybe not so much hockey. Most games are well thought out, have rules to live by, and if something isnt going the way it is supposed to go, the coach has the privilege of yelling Timeout. How many times could I have used this little rule in my life? Wouldnt it be nice to stop life when you have made an inappropriate remark, maybe you said something to your wife that came out the wrong side of your mouth. I have done that many a times. I think it would be rather nice if when I realize what I have just said, to be able to yell Timeout. Then do it over again. The other day one of my checks from my checking account bounced. That would have been a perfect time to yell timeout and redo the whole thing. There are so many things in life that could benefit from this one little thing called timeout. I suggest that we began implementing this into our daily life. After all, our daily life is much more important than a football game, a hockey game, or a baseball game. I think whenever something goes awry we should have the privilege to stop it right in its tracks and do it over again. It does not matter how many times we have to do it over again, we continue doing it over until we get it right. It would make life more exciting if I knew that if I made a mistake I could call Timeout, do a do-over, and make everything right. I think we need to have a very stern conversation with good old Father Time. He is so much a stickler for time marching on. But sometimes you get tired of marching and need to sit down and take a breather. Then sometimes, you need to change the direction in which you are marching. It is not so bad the time marches on but when it needs to turn around and march the other way that is a completely different story. In thinking further along this line, I discovered God already has a Timeout plan. I found it in 1 John 1:9 (KJV), If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. With this in mind, I certainly want to take full advantage of Gods Timeout plan.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P.O. Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Savannah Helton led the team to triumph and threw in a few great tips over the net. Dania Clark pierced the North Marions girls with great spikes that bumped up the scoreboard even more. It was an overall great game for the Junior Varsity Lady Tigers. We won the game because were no longer individuals trying to win a game, Helton said. We are a team that communicates and cares about another. Im very proud of our team and how much spirit and heart that we have for the game and our teammates you wont find another team that GAIGE EVANS/For the Riverland NewsThe Dunnellon JV volleyball team expresses its excitement Sept. 19 after winning their game against North Marion. JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsRyan Molloy lines up a putt Sept. 20 at Juliette Falls in a match against St. John Lutheran. The 17year-old senior leads the Tigers with a nine-hole scoring average of 40. Senior golfer shoots for military academy appointment Ryan Molloy wants to serve. The 17-year-old Dunnellon High School senior certainly has a lot to offer the world, not only as he continues in his last year of high school, but as he ventures off to college and chooses a career. In high school, Molloy stays actively involved in many clubs and activities including: Student Government, Junior Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (JAFROTC), National Honor Society (NHS), Future Business Leaders Association (FBLA) and golf. He does all of this while maintaining a 4.62 (weighted) grade point average, and taking Advanced Placement classes. On the golf team, he is frequently the player with the lowest score and the highest focus. Afterall, he started playing in the Kiwanis Club youth development program, at the age of 8. He has continued to play to this day and has been on the Tigers golf team for the past four years. For college and career, he is looking into the Armed Forces. He intends to study engineering, preferably electrical, but maybe marine or civil. He has applied to the U.S. Tigers JV topples Pirates, 30-16 Three first-half touchdowns, including two on the ground, and a stifling defense paced the Dunnellon High School Junior Varsity football team to its first victory of the season Wednesday, Sept. 19, against Crystal River at Ned Love Field. The Tigers had lost their two of their three games of the season, including two setbacks all to Class 7A schools West Port and Ocala Forest. Their lone victory came against Columbia. From the 38-yard line, sophomore Chase Brattin handed the ball off to Devin Simms, who ran in for the touchdown with 3:39 remaining in the first quarter. The Pirates added a safety in the second quarter, trimming the Tigers lead to 6-2 before Dunnellon responded with a 52-yard touchdown run by Brattin. The Tigers converted their 2-point conversion, pushing their lead to 14-2. Crystal River responded quickly, bringing the ball down the field and scoring on a fourth-and-goal from inside the 1-yard line to trim the lead to 14-8. Dunnellon had an answer though, as Brattin threw a 32-yard strike to receiver Stacin Bishop to set up his Tiger JV quarterback Chase Brattin passes to a receiver Sept. 19 during their victory against Crystal River. The Tigers knocked off the Pirates, 30-16, for their second win of the season. Brattin accounted for two rushing TDs in the win.ARIEL BUCHKO/For the Riverland News Football drops third straight Tigers aim to rebound vs. RaidersGAINESVILLE Dunnellon High Schools bid for a state playoff spot began last Thursday as the Tigers opened their district slate against Gainesville East Side. However, Dunnellon couldnt overcome turnovers and mistakes losing, 22-16, as the Tigers dropped their third straight game after a season-opening victory against Ocala West Port. Taking the opening kick off, Dunnellon (1-3 overall, 0-1 District 5A5) started off with a quick bang, scoring its first touchdown with 7:09 remaining in the opening quarter. Quarterback Jordon Boley capped off the drive, scoring on a secondand-goal from the 6yard line. The extra point was good, giving the Tigers a 7-0 lead. The Rams intitial drive stalled; however, Eastside didnt come away empty handed after a 21-yard field goal trimmed Dunnellons lead to 7-3. Senior Dustin Molina sparked the Tigers to open the second quarter, picking off a pass and returning it 42 yards for a touchdown, giving Dunnellon a 14-3 lead with 11:48 left in the first half.

The Tigers latest victory was against St. John Lutheran 181-200 on Thursday, Sept. 20, at Juliette Falls. Junior Bryce Thalacker carded a 41 to lead the Tigers. His performance was followed by seniors Ryan Molloy, 44, and Richie Litterine, 46. Coach John Ravenscroft is impressed with how is team is coming around. Of his returning athletes, he said, Ryan, Bryce and Alex (Nonnemacher) are steady as rocks. Richie and Michael (Beach) are making progress by leaps and bounds. The teams top three have 9-hole averages are: Molloy, 40; Thalacker, 42.75; and Nonnemacher, 49. According to Ravenscroft, the goal for the team is to have a winning season and make a good showing of themselves at Districts.

made it to the 3-yard line as senior Austin Betzer capped the drive with a 3-yard run up the middle. The Rams extra point was no good, but they did trim the Tigers lead to 14-9 before half time. The turnovers in the first half were big, they kind of killed us, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said. In the second half, both Dunnellon and Eastside brawled back and forth trying in an attempt to take advantage of field position and scoring opportunities. But it was the Rams who were able to take advantage of pair of fumble recoveries and a turnover on downs. On fourth-and-4 for Dunnellon, Eastside recovered a Tigers fumble, which paved the way for the Rams Corey Carrol 15-yard touchdown reception with 4:58 left in the third quarter. Eastsides extra point try failed again; however, the Rams found themselves with their first lead of the game, 15-14. On the Tigers ensuing drive, Dunnellon turned the ball over on downs, failing to convert a fourth-dwon attempt. With the ball back in Eastsides hands, sophomore Sam McGinnis scored on a 23-yard run on a second-and-8 play with 11:49 left in fourth quarter. The Rams extra point try was good, giving Eastside a 22-14 lead. After a fumble recovery from sophomore Cole Fagan, the Tigers turned the ball over themselves. After forcing the Rams to punt, Dunnellon fumbled again on a third-and6 play; however, Dunnellon Dalwin Landrum picked up a safety, trimming the Tigers deficit to 22-16 and giving Dunnellon a chance to score. The Tigers did just that, only to see their touchdown called back on a penalty on a third-down play. Two plays later, on a fourth-and-goal, a Boley pass attempt fell short as time expired. We played harder Thursday night than we have the whole season, Beasley said. That last play where our touchdown got called back was the best play of the night. In order to change our streak, we will keep doing what we do and well battle through it. Next week will be a tough game, but we will play strong. Dunnellon plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday at South Sumter. Merchant Marine Academy, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy and West Point. If he goes to a standard university one day, he is interested in the University of Florida or Florida State University, and joining the ROTC programs there his freshmen year. I chose the military because they offer some of the best education for an engineering degree, while guaranteeing you a job, a paid education, and a paycheck while you study, Molloy said. The branches that most meet his fancy are the Coast Guard or Air Force, but he will serve wherever he is accepted. Molloy knows he certainly has his work cut out for him when it comes to military academy requirements; but with his academic achievements he shouldnt have too much trouble. He has to maintain a 3.5 or above GPA, a varsity letter in sports, be active in school clubs, have all of his medical records to send in and have a congressional appointment (required by four of the academies). Each congress member can only support two students, so it is pertinent he excels in his interview. Medical records are hard to gather since you are required to have every medical paper to send, said Molloy. He looks forward to the challenge ahead with great anticipation and optimism, and understands exactly what each college is looking for. They want a person who is well-rounded and patriotic and has the willingness to serve and better their country, Molloy said. You have to be in the top 10 percent of your class. They only want to see you have put in an effort, they dont care that you passed an AP class, but that you attempted it. They are building leaders of their country, so they want the best of the best. works harder! The team collaborated all of their individual skills to create a winning lineup. Organization, fortitude, and what the teams calls swag, have kicked off a new beginning for a season which began with a rough start. These girls work very hard and the only thing they did different this past game was communicate as a team and have faith in their ability, said Junior Varsity coach Dallas Towns. It seems like the group has finally discovered their full potential. Added player Ashley Knerr: We talked to each other, we wanted to be there. We had good passes and some good kills we played like an actually team that game. DHSs JV volleyball team has really stepped up and shown that they have what it takes. Most JV teams dont work as hard as we do, Towns said. They have a lot of heart and thats what is going to keep us fighting until we get to where we need to be. On the other hand, the varsity team is still seeking its first victory. Individual stats are getting higher and higher while the scores stay the same. Both the varsity and junior varsity teams play against Citrus, Nature Coast and Crystal River this week. own 17-yard touchdown run, his second of the contest. The Tigers converted their two-point attempt, extending its lead to 22-8 with 4:05 remaining in the opening half. We really sustained a drive this game, Dunnellon junior varsity coach Archie Smith said. The Tigers Andre Hairston started the second half intercepting a Crystal River pass, setting up Simms second rushing touchdown of the game. On secondand-goal, Simms score and two-point conversion pushed the Dunnellon lead to 30-8. The Tigers turned the ball over twice in the second half, the second of which lead to Crystal Rivers second touchdown of the game, but making little difference in the outcome. Our defense and offense did a good job tonight, Smith said. Our offense needs to be more consistent. Even though we have a 2-2 record, it doesnt mean anything. I am more focused on bringing up the players level. Dunnellon plays at 7 p.m. today against South Sumter at Ned Love Field. It will be a good game tonight, they can play a full four quarters, Smith said.Riverland News, Thursday, September 27, 2012 9 China House China House China House D INING T O G O OR E AT -I N (352) 522-0008 (Next to Subway) 000CP6W 11352 N.

started Dunnellon on a real road to recovery. Thank you! McAndrew touted Algieres accomplishments of acquiring additional water utilities; the implementation of Greenlight Dunnellon; annexation of Blue Run Ranch; improved intergovernmental relations between state, county and city; and improved community relations through the school-blast and renaming of City Beach to Dinkins Park, to name a few. As an area to improve upon, McAndrew cited the relations with Rainbow Springs Utility customers. Only time and Ms. Algieres patience and peacemaker skills will effectively deal with this issue. McAndrew credited Algiere for a patient persistent job. Dunnellon is seeing great things already, were the talk of the League of Cities, she wrote. In evaluating her skills to continue to improve quality services to citizens, McAndrew wrote, a quick observation of our roads, medians, sidewalks and city properties is all one needs to see that our city is much better off than it was three years ago. Mayor Fred Ward scores totaled 268 and Councilman Dennis Evans gave Algiere 244 points out of a possible 280. Ward touted her accomplishments with the Rainbow River Ranch settlement; the purchase of Rainbow Springs, Juliette Falls and Rio Vista utility systems; negotiating the financial package to establish Greenlight Communications; and the ability to deliver a budget with a half-mil reduction. There are no major issues that need to be addressed in this evaluation, Ward wrote. Any suggestions can be made one-on-one with Ms. Algiere. Her willingness to respond to suggestions is still one of her greatest strengths. The fiscal year 2013 budget was approved by the Council on Monday night as officials set the millage rate at 6.8013, a half point lower than the 2013 rollback rate. Overall, Mayor Ward pointed out, the decrease equals a 6 percent drop in property taxes for property owners compared to a year ago. All told, the citys general fund budget for the upcoming fiscal year, which starts Oct. 1, will be $3,662,792. The citys water enterprise fund budget will jump 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 will increase from $2,030,870 in 2012 to 3,298,180 for fiscal year 2013. According to the proposed budget, revenues are increasing 349.8 percent, from $351,035 last year to $1,578,830. The City Council did approve water and sewer increases to the tune of 5.75 percent and 6.25 percent, respectively. The increases are 1 percent less than proposed a year ago. The council also approved changes in the way developments with one master meter, such as hotels and Dunnellon Mobile Park, will be charged for their water usage. The budget for Greenlight Communications is increasing to $4,693,599 after the council approved it Monday. A year ago, Greenlight had a budget of $2,749,218, but the FY 2013 budget shows a projected revenue stream of $4,693,599. Thus far, the citys 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 due in November to Regions Bank in Orlando. Former Councilman Ron McAndrew, whose wife Lynne holds a seat on the council, praised the efforts of the City Council and particularly the performance of Algiere. Thank you, he told Algiere for her commitment to the city of Dunnellon. On Thursday, Sept. 13, the LGA played a game of Low Gross/Low Net. First Low Gross: Toni Bulson.

The grant would be used to a run a 12-inch water main from the Dunnellon-Marion County Airport along the south side of County Road 484. Overall, the project is estimated to cost slightly more than $1.2 million. The grant itself would cover $650,000 of the cost while the city would contribute up to $600,250. The deadline to submit the grant application is Oct. 1. Approved the first reading of Ordinance 2012-07 by title only regarding the transmittal of comp plan amendment CPA2012-13 for Boger Farms.

Because of their faith and to praise God for the successes of the Pickin Patch, the Thomas and the Dixons select a Bible verse each fall and make a sticker to attach to each pumpkin they sell. This years verse is 2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight. We make this a springboard for our faith, Thomas said. We have the opportunity to witness to thousands and thousands that come through the property. God has his hand in this. Admission is once again $2 for those 4 and older; children 3 and younger are free. The entrance to the Patch will change this year, because of the larger amount of acreage used. Normally, visitors could gain access off of Robinson Road, but this year, theyll have to use State Road 40 west, Thomas said. The entrance is directly across from the city water tower and signs will be posted, Thomas said. The address is 11000 Rolling Road. More than anything, what cheers Thomas are the positive responses about offering an experience the whole family can enjoy, he said. Thats what we want more than anything, he explained. What weve turned into, what weve morphed into, is people can actually ring in fall. They can help ring in the fall. The hayrides, the corn, the pumpkins, its a fall experience. People have embraced it. If it wasnt something they wanted or desired, they wouldnt be coming out. The people have been very supportive.

Romeo students prep for Picture Day Its Fall yall and SWI Photography will be at Romeo Elementary School taking fall school pictures Oct. 8 and 9. Kindergarten, firstand second-grade students will take their pictures Oct. 8 while third-, fourthand fifthgrade students will have their pictures taken Oct. 9. All students and staff will have their picture taken for the school yearbook at no charge. Your child will bring home the picture ordering packet with the different packages available to purchase on a pre-pay basis if you wish to purchase them. This is a great, inexpensive Christmas gift for grandparents and other family members. Another idea is to use one of the smaller pictures to make an annual dated ornament for your Christmas tree, which you can present to your child when they move out to start their own adult home. Dont forget to buy your Coupon for Education booklets it is a great deal at $15 each. Remember, most of the money raised stays right here at Romeo to help us purchase items used at our school. Wow! The top three sellers at Romeo will get to eat lunch with Mrs. Ashman at McDonalds. How great would that be? Romeo Elementary is collecting Box Tops 4 Education! What are those? On every General Mills product ranging from cereals to yogurts, you can find one of these box tops worth 10 cents. You would help Romeo earn cash for school supplies and equipment. Send your donation of Box Tops to school with your child, drop them off in our front office or mail them to 19550 SE 36th St., Dunnellon, FL 34431. Thank you for your continued support. Please look for the monthly newsletter and the progress reports, which are scheduled to go home with students Sept. 28. The newsletter will contain the ballot for voting members to be elected to the SAC committee.

PRINCIPALS OFFICE Jane Ashman Romeo Principal Its time for the annual Lake Eaton Kids Fishing Derby at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) Ocala Conservation Center and Youth Camp in the Ocala National Forest. The derby will be from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 13, for children ages 6-12. Advance registration is required, and space is limited to 90 children. To sign up, call the FWCs Ocala office at 352-732-1225 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., weekdays. The Ocala Conservation Center is 8.5 miles north of State Road 40 off County Road 314 in the Ocala National Forest. In addition to fishing, there will be a casting contest, an arts and crafts activity and an all-time favorite of derby-goers called Bugs and Critters. In this creepy-crawly activity, the kids get to wade into the lake with dip nets and scoop up fish, bugs and other aquatic critters. An FWC biologist uses the experience to teach kids about the aquatic ecosystem. The kids will get wet, so they should bring a change of clothes. Each registered child who participates will receive the famous Lake Eaton Kids Fishing Derby T-shirt and a brand new rod and reel to take home absolutely free. The rods and reels are courtesy of Fish Florida!, a nonprofit organization that supports activities to teach children about fishing and aquatic habitats.

Dunnellon Elementary School has been very busy since students returned to school. Due to class sizes, we had to add three new teachers one each in kindergarten, first and second grades. We also added a new art teacher, Ms. Katrina Vitkus. We had a Book Fair and two Open Houses the week of Sept. 10 through Sept. 14. The Title I van visited our campus with ideas and hands-on make and take activities for parents to help their children be better students. We also had fourthand fifthgrade classes visit the Silver River Museum. They learned about ecosystems affecting our planet. The new art teacher at DES is Katrina Vitkus, she was previously teaching art at Reddick-Collier Elementary. Ms. Vitkus enjoys helping students realize that art is all around us and incorporates science, math and reading skills into art lessons. Art students are currently working on projects for the FAFO Art Show Oct. 27 to 28. Ms. Vitkus lives on a small farm, rides horses and is happy to be working in Dunnellon. Nadine Tull received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Bethel College in Mishawaka, Ind., in 1973.She began teaching third grade at a private school in West Palm Beach, where she taught third grade for seven years. She then taught fourth grade at Pahokee Elementary in Pahokee for three years. To enjoy the country life, Mrs. Tull and her husband, Ray, relocated to Dunnellon in 1989 where she taught first grade for one year and third for two years at Dunnellon Elementary. Then, Mrs. Tull was asked to teach at the newly built Romeo Elementary in 1992. She taught third grade for one year and then taught four grade for 19 years. During that time, she received her Masters Degree in ESOL from the University of Florida in 2005; was selected as Romeo Teacher of the Year in 2010-11; and received three grants from the Public School Foundation. She enjoys reading, singing at Christian and Country events, and helping abandoned animals. We welcome these new people and returning ones to Dunnellon Elementary. Ms. Jennifer Stuart reports on our little ones: Kindergarteners have been working hard to build their stamina in the act of reading to self. Every day, they try to add just a little bit more time on to how long they can read to themselves. In just a few weeks of school, they know that there are many ways to read a book, even when they dont know the words. They are trying very hard to learn their letters and read through a book using the pictures to help. We have a strong generation of readers coming up.Calendar of Events Sept. 20 to 30 PTO Tiger Cub Yankee Candle fundraiser. 6:30 to 7:30 Sept. 27 Girl Scout Round-Up in the Cafeteria.

Riverland News, Thursday, September 27, 2012 15 FAMILY FEATURES Potatoes are the ultimate comfort food, but a few twists on classic side dishes like mashed potatoes, salads and casseroles can take potatoes to a whole new level. With so many delicious types available year-round, its easy to create exciting and nutritious side dishes that can be the highlight of any meal. Heres what you need to know about the seven different potato types to help you start experimenting with different colors, textures, cooking methods and flavor additions: Fingerlings These small, slender fingersized potatoes range from two to four inches in length. They come in a wide range of skin and flesh colors and most possess a firm, waxy texture, which makes them ideal for potato salads. Pan-frying enhances their robust flavor and showcases their wonderful nutty or buttery tastes. Petites Petites share the same flavor and texture as their full-sized cousins, but their flavors are actually more concentrated, and they cook more quickly. Petites can be found in red, white, yellow, brown and purple, and make delicious roasted potatoes and potato salads. Purples/Blues Purple/blue potatoes have a deep purple skin with flesh that ranges from purple to almost white. The moist, firm flesh retains its shape and adds rich colors and a mild, yet distinctly nutty flavor to tossed salads. They are also sensational roasted. Reds Reds are widely known for their rosy red skin and white flesh. The moist, waxy flesh stays firm and flavorful through out cooking, making it ideal for roasting. The slightly sweet, always-tender texture comple ments any dish, and the vibrant red skin adds appealing color and pizzazz to potato salad, soups and stews. Russets Russets are characterized by a brown, netted skin and white flesh. The delicate potato flavor and grainy texture of a baked russet creates light and fluffy mashed potatoes and crispy pan-fried potatoes. Whites This all-purpose potato has a white flesh and white (sometimes light tan) skin. They are slightly dense and creamy, with a subtly sweet flavor. Their delicate, thin skins add just the right amount of texture to mashed potatoes without the need for peeling. Grilling whites brings out a more full-bodied flavor; or use them in soups and stews. Yellows This type boasts golden skin and golden flesh. Grilling gives them a crispy skin, which enhances the dense and buttery texture, and gives them a slightly sweet, caramelized flavor. Their naturally smooth texture also lends itself well to lighter versions of baked or roasted potatoes.
