SERVINGDUNNELLONANDRAINBOWSPRINGS Thursday, October 4, 2012Vol 30 No. 50 75 cents WHATS HAPPENING Undersheriff takes leave of absceneSheriff Ed Dean received a formal complaint from a lawyer representing a woman in Marion County who has alleged to having an extramarital affair with Undersheriff Dan Kuhn during the time Undersheriff Kuhn was an employee of the Marion County Sheriffs Office. Undersheriff Kuhn admitted to having an affair in the past, had confessed the affair to his wife, and that she had forgiven him. Undersheriff Kuhn requested that he be allowed to take an indefinite leave of absence without pay during the investigation. Sheriff Dean granted the leave of absence without pay. Due to Undersheriff Kuhns position with the agency and consistent with the publics right to know, Sheriff Dean has requested that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement commence an investigation to determine if there have been any violations of law as a result of Undersheriff Kuhns conduct.Mayoral candidate to host meet-and-greet Nathan Whitt, a candidate for Dunnellon City Council Seat No. 1 and the mayors seat, will host a meet-andgreet from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Dunnellon Historic Depot at 12061 S.

Its been a long two years in the making for a new Boys & Girls Club facility, but within the next three weeks, dirt will begin to move, a new roadway and sewer lift station installed off U.S. 41, and the property that once was home to the old middle school will show signs of life once again. I think we have finally reached the plateau where will see some movement out there soon, said Bobby James, former Dunnellon High principal whos lead the charge for the past several years to see a new facility constructed in Dunnellon. Were at point now where well start moving dirt soon. Were in great shape. Everything is falling into place, James said, noting a precise ground-breaking date has not been established. Delayed by site plans, problems with the soil and funding issues, the new facility which had been slated to be operation in 2011, will likely be ready for children by 2013. Initially, the project was delayed by finding the right Bobby James Annual 5kwalk slated Event will benefit ACS Thousands of Marion County residents, breast cancer survivors, business and community members will join together and put on their pink bras at the American Cancer Societys Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk to fight breast cancer and provide hope to all people facing the disease. This noncompetitive, fundraising event will unite the community in celebrating breast cancer survivors, educate men and women about the importance of early detection and prevention, and raise money to fund lifesaving research and support programs that will further the progress against this disease. The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk will be at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, at Silver Springs, Natures Theme Park in Ocala. Registration will open at 6:30. Participants will NATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsKelly McNeill, an RT(R)(M), for Advanced Imaging Center in Ocala, assists a patient with an MRI screening recently. Advanced Imaging Center has paired up with the Michelle-O-Gram Foundation for the past three years to provide low-cost screenings for women who cannot afford the otherwise costly medical tests. Resident on road for Defeat Obama Tour Elizabeth Letchworths resume is chock full of a long list of accomplishments and accolades from her 26-career in the U.S. Senate, where she began working as a Senate page in 1975 to serving as the first woman as the United States Senate Secretary for the Majority (Republican). During her career, she also served in the Senate Republican Cloakroom and becoming the first female Cloakroom assistant to a position as director of the Senate Legislative Scheduling. Letchworth has developed her previous political experience and current affiliations to develop the website GradeGov.com. She is a weekly columnist for the Sunshine State Battling back Michelle-O-Gram continues its fight against breast cancer Three years ago, after 36year-old Michelle Standridge died after a short battle with breast cancer, her family and friends banded together, knowing they needed to do more to promote awareness and help women obtain costly screenings. Their other reason was simple: they didnt want other families to endure the loss of a wife, mother, sister, niece or friend. So the family and friends of the longtime Dunnellon resident plotted their course and created the Michelle -O-Gram Foundation, a local charity, which assists local women with mammogram testing. In three years, theyve assisted more than 400 women with screenings and diagnostic mammograms, as well as breast ultrasound exams. (It) seems mind-boggling, Sherry Roberts said of the number of women the nonprofit charity has assisted in the past three years. Weve always got such a list for women waiting for the next available spot. The Michelle -O-Gram Foundation continually hosts a variety of fundraising events such as the annual Horizon of Hope Luncheon, yard sales and such. This year, the group has scheduled a charity fishing tournament. Every dollar that comes in Special to the Riverland News Sandra Moore enjoyed the festivities surrounding last years Making Strides Against Cancer Walk. This years event is scheduled for Nov. 3 at Silver Springs, Natures Theme Park.Special to the Riverland News Diagnosis was bomb going off For former Dunnellon resident Suzanne Moore, April will always be a month shell remember, perhaps not with fondness. It was more than two years ago when the mother of two had a bomb dropped on her. Moore had been told she had a breast cancer. It just floored me, I didnt know how to act, Moore recalled. It was like someone dropped a bomb on me. It was an aggressive cancer, too, Stage 3, Invasive, said Moore, a 1981 graduate of Dunnellon High. Before she underwent tests to make sure, Moore had an uneasy feeling about a lump in her breast. But a self examination sounded the alarm. The first time was weird, never felt anything like it, explained Moore, who moved to nearby Belleview 10 years ago. It was like a big huge knot out of nowhere. Within like a week FUNDRAISERS The Michello-O-Gram Foundation has two fundraisers planned for the next two Saturdays, starting with the annual Horizon of Hope Luncheon at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Rainbow Springs Golf & Country Club, followed by the Fishing for the Fight, a benefit redfish and trout tournament, Oct. 13 at TJs Bait and Tackle in Dunnellon.

she had scheduled a doctors appointment. She had all of her testing done within a day the mammogram and ultrasound. I wanted to know right away, Moore said. She began radiation and chemotherapy treatments for her cancer within a week of the diagnosis. Moore didnt take the time to sit around and feel sorry for herself, she jumped right into activities designed to raise awareness for not just breast cancer, but cancer in general. I had real long hair, so the first thing I did was I gave my hair to Locks for Love, Moore said. I dove right into American Cancer Society, I just started doing fundraising. I went crazy with fundraising. I did three Relays and Making Strides all in one year. I did a lot of fundraising and events. I just dove into helping other people. Almost 16 months into her treatment for breast cancer, and nearly complete with chemotherapy treatments, Moore said the alarm went off again. She felt another lump in the same breast. Moore asked doctors to rescan her breast, just to be on the safe side. The result was the same cancer. It was just a different type of breast cancer, but in same side, she explained. It was like out of the box. They never had a case like mine. I just had a weird feeling, felt a little knot. Within a week of the second diagnosis, Moore had a radical mastectomy completed. Three months after her second cancer diagnosis, Moore had a heart attack. Since her initial diagnosis with cancer, she has undergone six surgeries. She opted not to undergo more chemotherapy treatments. Moore is scheduled to have a hysterectomy in the coming months. Shell have to wait until sometime next year to have reconstructive surgery on her breasts, but she was adamant that she not have more chemotherapy treatments. It was a no brainer, she said of the decision to not have more chemo treatments. The physical toll was evident, Moore said. An active volunteer with Special Olympics Florida since 2006, she said she knew it was time to step down from her role as basketball coach. She became involved in Special Olympics when her father used to help a neighbor, whose child had special needs. Moore said she can relate, having a 12-year-old son with Aspergers Syndrome. It was really, really hard, she said about giving up the position. I still did county games, coaching and scoring. But I couldnt really do the coaching, coaching that I really loved to do. My body just cannot take that. Moore said she hasnt really taken a sigh of relief and wont until she has her other breast removed and the reconstruction completed. Thats when I can breathe a sigh of relief, she said, noting every six months she has to have a mammogram and a scan. The first thing shed love to do once that is complete, is take a cruise, more specifically a Relay For Life cruise. This is the first year theyve done them, she said. That would be fabulous to do. goes back into the community, Roberts explained, noting the Foundation has assisted women from Marion, Citrus, Levy, Sumter and Lake counties. Theres no administrative overhead to deal with, our supplies are donated. Every dollar we get goes right back into the community. The Michelle -O-Gram Foundation had plenty of ground to cover before it was able to provide services to the 400 women within a five-county radius its assisted with in covering the costs of the highpriced screenings. Foundation members were able to strike a deal with Advanced Imaging Center, negotiating a deal ensuring low-cost screenings for those being helped by the Foundation. Once women are approved for assistance, its up to them to schedule appointments, Roberts said. They stepped up, they really did, Roberts said, explaining they give us their lowest reimbursement price for the screenings. Roberts said Standridge, a humble woman who shied away from the limelight, would be taken aback by the number of women assisted through the group named in her honor. I would have to she would have never imagined the number of womens lives she has impacted, Roberts said. Even those within the organization have been humbled by their efforts to assist women, no matter their income levels. Those who need assistance are not turned away, Roberts explained. Its a wonderful feeling that to know youve been able to help somebody. We couldnt do it without the hundreds of people who commit their time. We seem like were very small part in a big, big picture.

C need more than sneakers for this years walk, as they are encouraged to Put On Your Pink Bra. The Put On Your Pink Bra campaign empowers walkers to wear pink bras in support of the fight against breast cancer. All across the state, walkers will sport pink bras to represent a personal breast cancer journey or the journey of a survivor they know. We got a phenomenal response from walkers across the state last year when we launched the Put On Your Pink Bra campaign, said Robin Arnold, 2012 event chair. Participants turned out in waves, clad in beautiful pink bras, uniquely decorated with everything from glitter and sequins to feathers. Each person who puts on a pink bra used it to tell the personal story of the effects of breast cancer on his or her life, whether as a survivor or a supporter. This years Put On Your Pink Bra campaign is a part of the American Cancer Societys Making Strides Against Breast Cancer program. Money raised through these events funds breast cancer research, provides up-to-date breast cancer information, ensures everyone has access to breast cancer screening and treatments regardless of income and provides services that improve the quality of life for patients and their families. Breast cancer has a profound impact on Floridians as the state ranks second in the nation for the number of new breast cancer cases and third in the number of related deaths, said Diana Schwartz, community representative for the Marion Unit of the American Cancer Society. But out of these grim numbers comes the hope we create when we gather and work together to fight this disease. The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is not only a way to raise funds for that fight, but also gives us a chance to gather to celebrate survivors. The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk supports the American Cancer Societys unique mission to fight cancer on all four fronts: research, education, advocacy and patient services.

River views Article full of misinformation; heres the truthLast Thursdays Riverland News was full of misinformation promulgated by the Dunnellon City Council. Mayor Ward argued for approval of the latest version of the settlement agreement to the Bert Harris lawsuit brought by the Rainbow River Ranch developer. Without knowing the contents of the agreement or not caring I dont know which is worse he proceeded to proclaim that the city had spent $600,000 on legal fees defending against this lawsuit. That is mind boggling and I dont believe it. How could a part-time city attorney rack up such costs? Rainbow River Conservation (RRC) has been involved as an intervenor since March 2010 and we have spent less than $25,000 on our attorney. Mayor Ward also again brought up the notion that each citizen of Dunnellon would have been on the hook for approximately $4,000 if the city lost the lawsuit. How does this compare with the $22 million bond debt that the city has incurred in the past two years, which puts each Dunnellon citizen at risk for $13,000? This is real debt. Who says the city, acting competently, would have lost the lawsuit? There are many reasons to believe the developer would not prevail. Now the settlement agreement not only threatens the Rainbow River, but it promises the developer millions of dollars worth of water and sewer capacity and infrastructure, a new utility services building, and various other unwarranted perks. The City Council thinks that there will be a boon from ad valorem taxes, but development studies have shown that services provided far outweigh the tax gain, particularly when there is a negligible developer impact fee. Some people think that the increased population would make city businesses grow, but it is more likely big box stores would come and drive the small businesses out. I am not against growth, but what the city is doing is not smart growth. Mayor Ward also went into a denunciation of a group who changed the citys comprehensive plan in 2008 and brought about other changes to the detriment of the city. I believe he was talking about RRC members, including me. He has a bad memory. He has been the mayor since 2007 and only the Council can change the citys comprehensive plan. The only substantive influences we had were helping to write the Tree Ordinance and garnering $3.2 million from a state grant to buy the Blue RRC playing obstruction game G ood luck to Jeff Bryan in his endeavor to quit smoking. Im lucky I was never a smoker, but I know plenty of people who are, and have been, and I believe the nicotine habit is a very hard one to kick. I think the only thing Ive ever been addicted to was my granddaughter when she was first born. I swear I had an obsession to be with her and I saw her every single day for the first two and a half years of her life. Once I set eyes on her and saw she was OK, I was OK. In some ways, Im still addicted to her, only now its a mental thing more than a physical one. Oh, and there was that huge craving I used to have with salt. I guess you could call that an addiction. I would salt things before even tasting them. I eventually learned that could kill me and I quit doing it. Then there was that guy back in the late s, but now Im digressing. My own husband has tried to quit smoking at least five times since weve been together, but has not been successful at it. Take the cigarettes away and he becomes a real grouch. In fact, one time I ended up going to the store and buying some for him. Sorry, I know that was wrong and I should have supported him, but a wife can only take so much. He also tried the patch once and it had a very adverse effect on him. I hope hell be able to do it one day so we can grow very old together. Russell has an extremely addictive personality. He never met a snack cake he didnt like, and if he likes something he goes to the extreme. No box of Krispy Kreme donuts is safe with him around. He actually goes through addictive stages. We have had the golfing phase, the fishing phase, the boogie board phase, a boating phase, camping gear, motorcycles and guitars. Now, hes into bartering and trading. Each time we enter one of these stages it requires all the bells and whistles from A to Z. For instance in the golf phase, he not only needed the lefthanded golf clubs and the golf cart, but also the Polo outfits, the proper shoes and the expensive golf balls. He would golf every single day. When he was into guitars, he never had enough and every guitar was his dream come true. I asked him how many of them he could play at one time. I finally had to tell him unless he was going to be the next Paul McCartney he needed to put an end to this habit pretty quickly. The motorcycle phase was probably the most expensive. He actually came riding up on a brand new Honda to surprise me. The surprise was I wasnt amused. Then, he had to have chrome everything, new mirrors, leather saddlebags and custom made helmets. I think you get the picture. Kicking the habit The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

Rather than attempt to catch the guided missile, I simply jumped into the clear sparkle of the river in question and swam a short distance away. Having no fear of salt or burning, my eyes opened and I was in that special place, that other world that only those who have been blessed to frolic in the Rainbow River know. Where eel grass blossoms have the tiniest of air bubbles, and they sway in the current like tiny fireflies. As I broke the surface feeling 10 years younger, refreshed and strangely optimistic, I could hear my friend saying come back, this s serious. So I paddled against the current back to the dock where we were seated and toweled off. He was right. It is serious and we need to talk about it. Listen, I said. You gotta stop doing that. That what? said Walt, still a little offended. That thing where you make these horrendous leaps and presumptions as to my motivations, I said. Really I do not want to club baby seals or starve children, and if we disagree about how best to protect our environment and the Rainbow River that does not mean that I want to destroy it. Its just that we want to save it in different manners. But you said you wanted to see a resort located on the Rainbow River, my friend Walt said. That would destroy it. I am sorry you cant see it Walt, but I believe that is the only thing that will save it, I explained. So I might ask you the same thing? Why do you want to destroy our river, Walt? This almost sent another missile my way. Now I know Walt truly loves the river he recently purchased his home on. I know he loves it so much that he believes it is his to share with those he sees fit, and those he doesnt see fit shouldnt be on it. He loves it so much, he built this really big dock on it so he could be out looking at it all the time. Watching it like a rabid guard dog. Walt, I have thought about it a long time and I believe that water is a resource, I said. A resource that is Key ground rules for productive discussion I n 2007, an environmental group pushed through Comprehensive Plan changes for the city of Dunnellon, which reduced zoning density of Rainbow River Ranch property. This prompted the property owner to file a Bert Harris lawsuit against the city to protect their vested property rights. For those of you unfamiliar, a Bert Harris lawsuit is about as serious as a heart attack, being the only court action in the state of Florida, other than capital murder, requiring a 12-person jury to determine damages. Subsequently, this environmental group opposed any settlement between the city and the property owner. It advocated the city go to trial and pushed the city to spend legal fees fighting for their cause. In 2009, after having three retired former businessmen as city managers, the city was able to hire an academically trained, experienced professional city manager, Lisa Algiere. Ms. Algiere determined the city was spending funds to fight the ideology of the environmental group, which was inconsistent with the best interest of the 1,733 citizens of the city. She approached the property owner with the intention of finding a way to settle this lawsuit. Ms. Algiere and the property owner worked tirelessly to achieve an amiable resolution that would meet the needs of the city, the environment and the property owner. The environmental group fought the settlement agreement the city and property owner negotiated and continued to demand the city not settle and go to trial. If the city went to a Bert Harris trial and lost, the damages could cost $6 to 8 million divided by about 1,500 parcels within the city limits, or $4,000 to $6,000 levy per parcel. There are property owners within the city who own more than one parcel who could be facing parcel levies of at least $10,000 to $12,000 or more. This judgment number is for damages, and does not include any punitive damages or legal fees. In 2010, when the property owner and city took the settlement agreement to the judge, the environmental group had convinced the state Department of Economic Opportunities, the former Department of Community Affairs, to join See LETTERS page 5 See VAUGHN page 8 Fred Ward Audrey Beem See JERSEY page 8 See RRC page 5 JERRY VAUGHN Special to the Riverland News

Run Park and give it to the city, and there was the other $600,000 grant we garnered for the improvements to the park. Then there was Councilwoman Penny Fleeger, who chastised mayoral candidate Nathan Whitt for politicking when all he did was ask questions and make suggestions to the council. Admittedly, Whitt was taken aback when he heard Mayor Ward say he was granting the public a courtesy when he allowed them to speak to a public issue. Fleeger launched into a tirade against Whitt, punctuating her remarks with expletives. When I stood up in the back of the hall saying this is ridiculous and turned to leave, Fleeger yelled out from the dais you are the worst of them, Dr. Eno. I returned to the podium, but Ward shut the meeting down and wouldnt let anybody speak. I told Fleeger that I had let many of her false accusations go by but that I wouldnt in the future. Then, City Development Director Harold Horne jumped up, wagged his finger in my face and yelled the next time you speak to her like that you will answer to me. There needs to be a change in Dunnellon. The city has the highest tax rate in the region and nearly the highest utility rates. Greenlight was poorly planned and introduced and promises to be a heavy drain on the city. Spending has to be reined in and relations have to be improved with the neighboring communities who support Dunnellons businesses. I dont think this city council has the wisdom or demeanor to do it. Burt Eno Rainbow Springs Police department collects unwanted pills The Dunnellon Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) teamed up for the National Drug Take Back Day Saturday, Sept 29, to give the public an opportunity to safely dispose of their expired, unused, and unwanted medications. The collection took place in the police departments parking lot. During the event, the department netted slightly more than 50 pounds of pills. The DEA picked up the pills and will properly dispose them. It is important that we provide this opportunity to members of the community to safely dispose of their unwanted or expired medications without contaminating our environment and water systems. Last year, 552,161 pounds (276 tons) of prescription drugs were turned in at more than 5,600 sites operated by the DEA and close to 4,300 state and local law enforcement partners. In the last four years, Take Back events have taken in more than 1.5 million pounds nearly (775 tons) of pills. This addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that waste away in the home medicine cabinet are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Unfortunately today the rate of prescription drug abuse throughout the U.S. is alarmingly high. And worse, the majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained right from family and friends. We would also like to thank the citizens who graciously brought nonperishable foods and toiletry items to help the Annie Johnson Senior & Family Service Center whose pantry. A total of 14 grocery bags full of much needed donated items will be delivered and will help those in need in the Dunnellon area. Joanne Black Chief, Dunnellon Police Department them in an intervention in the lawsuit. So now its legal fight was being funded by the state. The intervention required the judge to send the city, property owner, state DEO, and environmental group back to negotiate a new settlement. The property owner, city and the state DEO have all negotiated in good faith to find an agreement that satisfied all parties. In addition, the state DEP has furnished a letter stating there are no environmental issues with this settlement. When we go back to judge, the environmental group will be the only interveners. This group has caused the City to incur $603,000 in legal expenses to date. Not to mention what the state and the property owner have spent on legal fees. Just think of what this city could have accomplished with $603,000 a new firehouse or police station? Burt Eno, the president of Rainbow River Conversation, stated on the front page of the Sept. 27 edition of the Riverland News We will fight settlement. We want to see a battle in court. Eno said. My board, 100 percent, feels that way. Enos assertion that this agreement was done behind closed doors without the presence of RRC is intellectually dishonest. This past summer, their was a meeting called by the head of the DEO at the Rainbow Springs head spring, which included Eno and his group, city staff and the property owner. The head of DEO had come here from Tallahassee to be a part of the settlement. Enos group refused to be part of any agreement. It seems it is his way or the highway. Done behind closed doors, indeed! If Enos group wants to continue their fight against the settlement in court, its legal fees will no longer be funded by the city or state, but rather, their own resources. This environmental group has not negotiated in good faith and continues its intransigent demand that the city go to trial. Ponce Inlet went to trial and lost and now it faces a $35 to $58 million judgment, not including punitive damages or legal fees. They have raised their millage rate to just pay legal fees and still face damages and punitive fees that will be determined by a 12-person jury. This is truly a settlement that the city, state, property owner and the public can be proud of. There are no environmental issues, per the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The only conclusion one can determine is: the group that still opposes the settlement is not looking to reach a solution, but its only mission is to obstruct.Fred Ward is the mayor of the city of Dunnellon.

Elizabeth Armistead Hightower, 97Elizabeth Armistead Hightower, 97, of Concord, passed away Friday, Sept. 28, 2012. A memorial service will be at 2 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012 at Epworth United Methodist Church in Concord. Dr. Glenn Myers, Jr. will officiate. The family will receive friends following the service at the church. Mrs. Hightower was born on March 18, 1915 in Montgomery, Ala. She was the youngest of ten children of Robert Stanton Armistead and Georgia Olivia Reid Armistead. She is survived by her daughter, Georgianne H. Jenkins of Concord; son, John Peach Hightower Jr. of Palm Springs, Calif.; 6 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. Remembrances for the family may be left at www.ladysfuenralhome.co m. Ladys Funeral Home & Crematory is assisting the family of Mrs. Hightower. I f I heard it once, I have heard it a million times and this week was no exception. In fact, the words carelessly tumble from my lips on many occasions, some of which have been perilously near the conclusion of my sermons. Most preachers never conclude their sermons, they just quit when they cannot indulge the congregation another minute longer. Someone once asked a famous preacher what it meant when he said, Now, in conclusion ... He thought for a moment and then replied, Nothing. Preachers are not the only ones inflicted with this verbosity virus. Watching a news broadcast recently, I heard a politician tumble headlong into the same abyss; Were going to make some changes around here, he proclaimed, and thats my final word on the subject. It does not really matter which politician pontificated thusly, for all of them have said it at one time or another and usually it is never their final word on any subject. Several things are wrong with that statement. First, when a politician uses the word were he never means to include himself. It is just a word he uses to confuse the subject at hand. Someone once made this observation, if all the politicians were laid end to end I would not be surprised. Secondly, the only change most politicians are interested in is the change in my pocket. They have committees devoted to figuring out how they can change the change in my pocket to their pocket. The slickness to which they do this is most remarkable. Thirdly, there is no such thing as a final word among politicians. Every politician insists on having the last word on any subject even though he knows nothing about the subject at hand. It is rumored by some6 Riverland News, Thursday, October 4, 2012 Attend the worship service of your choice... OUT TO PASTOR My final last words, finally, well almost Rev.

The Democrats have the left side, the Republicans have the right side and they have one intent; mouth in motion at all times. Since they share the same mouth, they both sound alike. When a politician has nothing to say you can be sure he will say it most profusely. Today, the only difference between a Republican and a Democrat is the spelling. One can spell in the other cannot. Every politician has two faces, before the election and after election. What a politician says before being elected has absolutely no relationship with what he or she will say after the election. The only thing absolutely certain is the newly elected politician will have a lot to say, but not much. Once elected their only strategy is to stay elected. They will do everything and anything to get my vote. I vote they all be electro-cuted. Nothing would be cuter. One thing that can be said about the political institution in our country, it is an equal opportunity liars club. Women have as much opportunity to join this truth-challenged extravaganza as the men. I do not know who makes better liars, men or women. The feminine side of this auspicious group has made a miraculous progress in catching up to their male counterparts. They both seemed quite adept in the practice. Many elected officials go to great lengths to keep their constituency from knowing where they stand on the issues. They are seated on committees so they do not have to reveal where they stand. They are good at sitting and pontificating but bad when it comes to standing for anything, which makes them believe their constituency will fall for anything. And we usually do. The lawmakers of our day are great change agents, to use a contemporary phrase. Their opinion on important issues changes with every new poll published. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on your point of view, for our friendly politicians, opinion polls can be given every hour on the hour. Of course, the more important the issue the more the politician reforms his opinion. A politician should have the cleanest mind in our country because they change it so much. Unfortunately, the exchange is usually down. Perhaps the best final words any politician could utter are, I wont run again. Usually when a politician says this, it means he is currently running from something or someone. Regrettably, the only change that comes with a new election is the name on the office door of the public servant. The bolts and nuts of our political system can be boiled down to; the politicians bolt for or from any excuse and we are nuts for electing them to any office. I sometimes get weary of all this superfluous change. It is true; the more things change the more they remain the same. What I want to change never does and what I do not want to change does. You can imagine what comfort I get from the Bible that never changes despite the efforts of some people. Two verses are particularly comforting to me. One from the Old Testament: For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. (Malachi 3:6 KJV.) One from the New Testament: Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 KJV.) When it comes to final words, I want that word to come from someone who will not capriciously change that word and upset my life. I can always trust Jesus Christ to give me a word I can always count on. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P .O. Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Riverland News, Thursday, October 4, 2012 7 First Congregation to host Interfaith Alliance The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County will sponsor a community conversation on the value of differences religious, ethnic and cultural at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 8, at First Congregational United Church of Christ, 7171 State Road 200. Marion County represents a 1 percent microcosm of our countrys population with its citizenry reflecting not only the ethnic complexion of the old South but also the diversity introduced by streams of new residents of European, Caribbean, Latin American, African and Asian background, said the Rev. Dr. Harold McSwain, Jr., pastor of the host church, who will moderate the event. They include Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and Bahai among others who are so enriching our civic life. While The Interfaith Alliance strongly supports first amendment rights of religious freedom and expression for all, we also wish to address the distinction between mere tolerance of differences and the progressive strengthening and acceptance of the rights of all segments of our society during the history of our young nation. Panel participants include the Rev. Edward Bland, pastor of the Greater Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church; Larry Collins, member of the Islamic Center of Ocala and vice president of The Interfaith Alliance; Judge Sandra Edwards-Stephens of the Fifth Circuit Court; Barbara Fitos, executive director of The Community Foundation; Rabbi Zeev Harari of Temple Beth Shalom; and Rev. Peggy Hostetler, pastor of the Oakbrook Center for Spiritual Living. The event is free and open to the public with a reception to follow in the adjacent community center.

He spends hours on the computer browsing for deals and then turns them into a profit. However, his addictive personality wont let him rest. If he trades for a fourwheeler, he then has to make the ATV the best in the county. When he trades for a new computer, he then needs the best speakers, a top-notch webcam and a larger monitor. I think you get the picture. Many of my friends tell me this is just a guy thing boys and their toys. I am waiting for the make money phase. That will be one addiction I think we can both live with. 8 Riverland News, Thursday, October 4, 2012 000CTQ7 P A Y F O R P A Y F O R P AY FOR 3 M O N T H S . 3 M O N T H S . 3 M ONTHS ...

I think that is the strongest argument you are going to be able to make. Walts face was scrunched up in the most adorable way, he began to sputter, but nothing intelligible came forth. I began to think that perhaps there was some other agenda here, something I was missing and that Walt wasnt letting out. But they churn up the bottom and get on my dock, he nearly screamed. Oh, I see, I replied. Are we talking about the same thing, Walt? For a moment, I thought we were talking about the environment. Things such as dams, which block the rivers natural ability to cleanse itself, or the very real chance that some type of detrimental manufacturing might take place in the area. You do understand that there is a recharge area and that proximity to the rivers edge isnt really any different than several miles away as it concerns water recharge, I explained. Walt, if youre concerned about the view from your dock, then by all means, lets have a discussion about that. You have every right to be concerned about it and being reasonable adults, I am sure we can come up with a plan to address those concerns. However, if we are going to have a serious conversation about the preservation of the river and the environment you are going to have to stop behaving as if everyone who does not agree with you about how to protect it is out to destroy it. That is a childish way of thinking, and we have not had that many cold ones yet. JERSEY continued from page 4 VAUGHN continued from page 4

News as well as a featured contributor to both The Daily Caller.com and AmericaSpeakOn.org. Additionally, Letchworth is the chairwoman of the Marion County Habitat of Humanity affiliate. Now, that experience is leading to a spot for the now Dunnellon resident to embark on the Defeat Obama Tour, an ambitious five-plus-weeklong, 72stop tour that kicked off Sunday, ending in Chicago at President Obamas National Campaign Headquarters. Starting this past Tuesday, the longtime Senate employee embarked on what she described as a once in a lifetime opportunity. Letchworth joined 14 other political pundits, musicians, comedians as well as others Tuesday on the Defeat Obama Tour, which officially kicked off Sunday. For me, its a chance to energize the American people and inspire them and play a role in our elective system, she explained. Weve got 14 people embarking on this crazy endeavor. Weve got national singers, comedians, a few political speech types. We want to get people excited about this election. Letchworth said the tour is not a bash the current president effort, but a chance to educate voters about both candidates. Thats not to say Letchworth wasnt shy about who her obvious choice is to win the presidency in this Novembers General Election. Personally, we want Obama defeated, she said. This isnt because we dont personally dislike President Obama, we dont like his policies. Letchworth said she and the others on the tour want the American citizens to stand up and retake America and rebuild America. She said the organizers of the tour are asking for those who come to the numerous rallies scheduled to bring a photo, no larger than 3.5inch-by-5-inch, of something they built. Theyll collect these photos along the tour then construct them in to a giant sign at Obama campaign headquarters that says, Yes, we did build it! Hopefully, we will entertain you and inspire you at the same time, Letchworth said. Letchworth said shes been on tours before, but none of this magnitude or length. The most shes been on the road for a tour is three, four days at the most. We do have down time between stops, we sort of have our private time, as much as you can consider it private time, to call family, call friends, Letchworth said. As we get closer, we will get our game face on. People will start putting makeup on, the singers will do their voice warm-ups. Almost without fail we say a collective prayer. So when we get out of the bus, the show starts. Then, when the show is over, you decompress and you do all over it. It is hard to keep it fresh, but as soon as you walk outside, see people standing there, holding signs, singing and waving the American flag, its easy to be energized. Its the American people, they inspire us. Letchworth recalled a trip to a small, small town on the Gulf coast of Florida. There was enough of an area to park the bus and when everyone got off there was about 50 to 60 holding signs and waving flags by the interstate. You know what the trucks, the cars passing by were just honking their horns and waving, she said. That was inspiring, truly inspiring. Letchworth said this trip has to be very close to the top of personal achievements, because its an opportunity to remind people, Democracy is not a spectator sport. It is a nice, fun easy way to remind them your chance to give back, she explained. Go to the polls, hand out literature, get involved, get excited, freedoms arent free. I rank it up there, way at the top. For information about the Defeat Obama Tour and its schedule of stops, visit www.defeatobama tour.com.

The Wall Rives Post 58 American Legion Ladies Auxiliary seeks news members to its organization. The Ladies Auxiliarys Membership Drive is now in full swing to accept new members interested in volunteering for an organization to help the American Legion Veterans needs. After the formation of the American Legion, a number of women organizations wanted to become the official affiliation of the Legion. The women who had served so faithfully during the trying days of the war wanted to continue to serve. After careful consideration, the committee agreed that a new organization should be made up of the women most closely associated with the men of The Legion, and that these women would serve with The Legion, in peace as they had in war. The committee decided to build a new organization from the ground up, so the Auxiliary could then carry forward the phases of Legion activities more suitably performed by women. The American Legion Ladies Auxiliary founded its organization 90 years ago on God and Country. Then, and now everything, the Ladies Auxiliary is involved in can be traced back to the purposes in the Preamble that begins with those words, For God and Country. Like the sun, moon and stars, our founding principles of justice, freedom and democracy have stood the test of time. Our members can be proud of their association with an organization that puts God and Country first. Now, more than ever, we need to stand firm in expressing our belief in God DHS grad finishes basic training Army Pvt. Manuel I. Cruz has graduated from basic combat training at Fort Jackson, Columbia, S.C. During the nine weeks of training, the soldier studied the Army mission, history, tradition and core values, physical fitness, and received instruction and practice in basic combat skills, military weapons, chemical warfare and bayonet training, drill and ceremony, marching, rifle marksmanship, armed and unarmed combat, map reading, field tactics, military courtesy, military justice system, basic first aid, foot marches, and field training exercises.

R IVERLAND SPORTS 12 Riverland News, Thursday, October 4, 2012 000CTX6 Marc Navetta, Boys Swimming Marc has been a team player all year, swimming events in duals meets that he normally doesnt swim. This weekend at the Conference Swim Meet in Orlando, the sophomore swam his best times in both the 50and 100-yard freestyles. Zahyrimar Otero, Volleyball In three games last week, the senior had a total of 24 digs, seven aces, seven kills and three tips as the Lady Tigers continued searching for that elusive first victory of the season. She now plays every game with a smile and cheers on her team when she is not playing, coach Terry Weber said. Zahyrimar Otero Marc Navetta Lady Tigers volleyball continues effort to secure first win With only six regular games remaining, the Dunnellon High School volleyball team has just a few short weeks left to pick up a victory. I told the girls that they have the talent and now they have to want it, Dunnellon coach Terry Weber. I know they can, It was a rough week for Dunnellon, when the Lady Tigers traveled Thursday to Crystal River, going head-tohead against the Lady Pirates. The first game began with a few good serves, tips and some extensive volleys for the Lady Tigers. Later, Dunnellon began to fall behind on the scoreboard but quickly jumped back up. Ele Goodloe recorded 12 digs that proved her to be the game standout player. However, Dunnellon lost the first round, 24-14. Dunnellon assistant coach Dallas Towns, challenged the varsity team members on the bench to promise they would have fun before she sent them out. But the Lady Tigers spirit just couldnt be found on Crystal Rivers court. The second and third rounds were abrupt and seemed as if they were played in a short instant with Dunnellon falling, 25-8, 25-9. The Lady Tigers contest at Nature Coast was also an unfavorable night as Dunnellon lost in three sets, 25-18, 25-18 and 25-19. Jody Weber and Nicole Drew had 18 assists each. Dunnellon will have Senior Night Thursday. The four seniors on varsity will be escorted into the gym by their parents. A short biography will be said about each player, and then a JV player will give them a gift. We do it every year at our last home game of the season, Terry Weber said. It is their farewell from high school. SPORTS BRIEFS Golf course to host championshipRainbows End Golf Course will host the Twilight League 18-hole championship at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 13.

GAIGE EVANS For the Riverland News Dunnellon drops matches to Crystal River, Nature Coast Beach returns to school after missing spring for cancer treatments Michael Beach is more than a 17-year-old junior at Dunnellon High School, but as of July 2, he is cancer free. It all started Jan. 22 when he landed incorrectly on his neck in a wrestling match that the tests began. Doctors began checking Beachs neck, but after X-rays revealed swollen lymph nodes in his lungs, the doctors focus changed and quickly. Beach endured five X-rays, three CAT scans, one PET scan, two bronchioscopies, and one tracheotomy. Of the last three tests, two of the lung samples were crushed. I took so much radiation in that period of time, that I was practically glowing, said Beach with a laugh. After three months of agonizing tests and trepidation, Beach was diagnosed March 26 with Hodgkins Lymphona, stage four non-symptomatic. He received weekly treatments at Shands at the University of Florida and finished his sophomore year in hospital athome schooling. I hated not going to school because it was boring at my house, he explained. And it was hard to teach myself all of my school work. Spanish was definitely the hardest subject for me to grasp by myself. It was boring, sad and depressing that I could no longer go outside of my house. I missed going to church, school, wrestling, golf, work and friends houses. During the next four months he got a maximum of four hours of sleep a night, not too much different than his mother. He took a daily shot of GCSF, Prednisone, and Oxycodon for pain. My routine was basically: wake up at 7 and take pills, lie around the house, take more pills, go to bed, Beach explained. On his worst day, Beach was headed home from Gainesville when he had an allergic reaction to the chemotherapy drug. He developed a fever of 103 and went into shock. His mom took him back to Shands, where Raiders blank Tigers in JV action DHS offense struggles Dunnellon High School couldnt generate much offense Thursday, Sept. 27, against South Sumter at Ned Love Field, as the Raiders shut out the Tigers, 20-0, in junior varsity action. On a first-and-5 play, South Sumters Wade Sapp scored on a 46-yard run with 4:44 remaining in the first quarter as the Raiders converted the extra point for a 7-0 lead. Dunnellon (2-3) and South Sumter battled back and forth, vying to find the end zone. However, both teams failed to do so as the Raiders went into half time with a 7-0 lead. South Sumters Hector Vera opened the Raiders scoring in the third quarter with 48yard run. The extra point failed, giving South Sumter a 13-0 lead. Dunnellon intercepted the Raiders on their following drive, but the offense failed to move the ball, being forced to punt. South Sumter took advantage of the Tigers lack of offensive production. On the first play of the drive, the Raiders Darien Williston ran in the touchdown and South Sumter converted the extra point for a 20-0 lead with 1:09 remaining in the game. Dunnellon plays at 7 p.m. today at Ned Love Field against Nature Coast Technical. DHS ATHLETES OF THE WEEK PRESENTED BY GREENLIGHT DUNNELLON COMMUNICATIONS No. 1 South Sumter roughs up Dunnellon BUSHNELL The topranked Raiders proved too much for Dunnellon Friday night, as South Sumter toppled the Tigers, 35-7, for their fourth consecutive loss. Dunnellon took the opening kick off, but couldnt solver the Raiders defense. The Raiders, the No. 1 team in Class 4A, showed why they are considered the best in their class, rattled off a pair of first-half touchdowns. On a third-and-16 for Dunnellon, South Sumters Neal Keanu intercepted the ball near the goal line and returned it about 30 yards. From there, the Raiders offense took over, marching their way down the field when Clay Simmons capped the drive with a 19-yard pass to Tafario Mckrachon with 7:49 remaining in the first quarter as South Sumter took a 7-0 lead. After forcing the Tigers to punt, the Raiders went right back to work. On second-and-9, Simmons broke down the right sideline for a 32-yard score as South Sumter extended its lead to 14-0. We really need to focus on our special teams, said Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley, whose team has lost four straight since a seasonopening victory against West Port. I believe that really hurt us this game.

Middle School Book Fair kicks off Tuesday T here will be a DMS Band Parent meeting from 6 to 7 p.m. today in the DMS Band Room with our Band Director, Ms. Roblow. DMS Fall Scholastic Book Fair kicks off Tuesday, Oct. 9, and continues through Monday, Oct. 15 in the DMS Media Center. The Book Fair is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The DMS Scholastic Book Fair offers students and parents an opportunity to view the newest and best selections of middle grade books right here on the DMS Campus. Coming to the DMS Book Fair with your child is a great Be There experience. Together you can find books to enjoy and discuss while you promote the love of reading that will last for a lifetime. Dunnellon Middle School loves to read and we ask our parents to be the firstline influence of good reading behavior by setting an example of positive reading habits. Finding just 20 minutes a day to sit-down and read for the joy of it is all we need to set the reading habit in place. Parents if you would like to come in and visit the Supporting education vital for childrens future R ecently an area paper published a report from the Census Bureau about the income levels in Marion County. The numbers were not surprising, but relating them to the children in our public schools makes it meaningful. The current definition of the poverty level is a family of 4 with an income of $23,000 a year. So if a parent has a full time job making $12 per hour, is married and has two children, they are living in or near the poverty level. Few of our parents have a full time job and many do not make $12 an hour. The report continues that approximately 1 child in 3 is living in poverty. Why does that matter? The families cant afford magazines, newspapers, computers, Internet or iPads. This puts their children at a disadvantage in handling the information they need to learn in school. They also dont have the experiences of going to music concerts, visiting museums or going to historical locations around the state to relate to the topics being covered in school. When a national test refers to an elevator or escalator, many children in Dunnellon have never seen or experienced one. When a text book refers to living in a high-rise apartment building, riding a local bus to any business or maybe taking a subway or elevated train to work, Dunnellon MCFR Fire Prevention Month Dunnellon Elementary School third-graders Brian Floid, left, and Tiara Howard, right, ask Scott Shockley, a firefighter/paramedic with Marion County Fire Rescue, Monday about the protective gear he is required to wear when entering a fire. Marion County Fire Rescue, in cooperation with Marion County Public Schools, will visit public elementary schools within Marion County to teach more than 20,000 children about fire safety in October through its 2012 campaign: Get Down. Get Out. Get On the Phone. National Fire Prevention Week runs Oct. 7 to 13; however, MCFR extended this weeklong national initiative into a month-long local campaign in an effort to reach more children, prevent fires and save lives. Reaching out to kids during school hours helps spur conversations at home about the need for smoke alarms and the importance of establishing escape plans. MCFRs 2012 campaign includes classroom curriculum, hands-on presentations, a video public service announcement and a countywide poster contest.

The district is customizing and testing the app now. The free app, called School Connect, is available in the Apple and Android app stores to users of smart phones and other appenabled devices. Once users download the free app, they can choose to receive push notifications from any school. Similar to text messages, these notifications can be immediate in case of an emergency. In the future, they may also remind subscribers about early release days, events, athletic competitions, club meetings, and other district and school functions. The app, provided free to the district and users at no taxpayer expense, links to the Parent Portal with student grades, school lunch menus, school addresses and contact information, school web sites, and education-related resources. It also provides GPS mapping and navigation links and multiple language options including Spanish. The app was created by School Connect, an Oklahoma-based mobile app developer for K-12 school systems. Within 24 hours of its initial launch in October 2011, School Connect was a Top 25 free app at the Apple store. To date, the app is available in 93 school districts in eight states including Florida. The app will enhance Marion County Public Schools efforts to improve communications with parents, students, employees, and other stakeholders. For more information, contact the Marion County School District or visit www.schoolconnect apps.com. ABOVE LEFT: Lt.

On first-and-10, senior quarterback Jordan Boley threw a 34-yard scoring strike to senior Andre Jackson as the Tigers converted the extra point and cut the Raiders lead to 14-7 just before half time. Dunnellon would get no closer in the second half as South Sumter scored 21 unanswered points to put the game well out of reach. The Raiders opened the second half with a quick scoring strike as South Sumters Davarreus Gibson caught a long pass at the 3-yard line with 11:46 showing on the clock in the third quarter that pushed its lead to 21-7. South Sumter capped its scoring in the fourth quarter on a fourth-and-6 play when Simmons threw a 12-yard pass to Ladovick Gibson for the touchdown. Our offensive line was the strongest thing we had this game, said Beasley. We always play hard, and there is room for some improvement. We have a tough schedule this year, but we will make it work. Dunnellon enters perhaps the toughest part of its schedule this week, according to Beasley. The Tigers have five games remaining including three District 5A-5 contests against Santa Fe, Belleview and Crystal River. Plus, Dunnellon hosts North Marion Nov. 12 at Ned Love Field. On the Tigers side is three of their final five games are at home. Dunnellon plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Santa Fe in a District 5A-5 contest.

If I would have made it back to Dunnellon, I would have been in critical condition. Fortunately, he had a great support group that helped him through the hard times. His stepfather, Jim Ervin, had already had a daughter that had survived cancer at the age of 8. His mother, Lisa Ervin, was there to make sure all of his needs were met. My mom was helpful because she was my mental support, even though I never did break down, Beach said proudly. His older sister, Melaina Beach, was there to ensure his spirits were high, and he was happy. She would take my thoughts away from cancer by staying up late with me, he said. And we would go buy olives and eat them at night! His friends from his previous school in Williston made a Relay for Life team in honor of Michael and organized a car wash to raise money for the cause, and received donations for the American Cancer Society. Beach has been living cancer free for more than two months. JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsMichael Beach poses with his friends March 30 at a party thrown in his honor.

students have no point of reference. Improving the income levels in our area may be out of our control, but providing some of these experiences is not. The area schools have sponsored field trips and the very children needing them lack the financial resources to participate. We as a community could donate to the schools to help cover the cost of expanding the educational opportunities of our young people. We can support the Coupons for Education being sold at area schools as a majority of the funds remain at the school selling them. We can gather up the Box Tops for Education, drop them off at an area school, which also generates some money for the school. We can shop at Target, which donates a portion of all sales to your designated school. Our civic groups can designate a small amount each year to the schools to provide field trip scholarships to needy children. All of the little things combined can allow our schools to provide those experiences which will help our students perform better in the classroom and on standardized tests. All Fire Safety Posters are due to Mrs. Thomas by Tuesday, Oct. 9. The poster contest is from now through Oct. 8. There will be a winning poster from each class selected. Winning posters will be taken to Staff Development on Thursday, Oct. 11. Marion County Fire Rescue will be at the school from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Monday, Oct. 15, for all students in kindergarten, first and second grades. Romeo Round-Up: The time is once again upon us for our annual Romeo Round-Up, sponsored by Romeos PTO. We would like to make this year better than ever! Round-Up will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25. There is no school the following Friday. This is an enjoyable evening full of fun and free games for our children and their families. Safe Halloween is also a part of Romeo Round-Up. With the purchase of a Pumpkin Necklace, children and their siblings will be able to Trick-or-Treat at 20 different classrooms. Dont cook dinner! The PTO will be selling hamburgers, hotdogs and other refreshments that evening. Come join us for an evening of family fun. Please look for more information and Pumpkin Necklace order forms. Recorder sales for fourthand fifth-grade students are well under way, and the last day to purchase a recorder for this school year is Monday, Oct. 8. Fourthand fifthgrade students will learn how to play a pre-band instrument called the recorder this year. The recorder helps teach basic concepts of music reading, music notation, and music appreciation. As a courtesy to you, I make recorders available for purchase. There are two styles: an Economy onepiece recorder and a Professional two-piece recorder. Either style will be acceptable for music class, although the two piece recorder is easier to clean and usually makes a nicer sound. If you are unable to purchase a recorder this year, your student will be able to use one of the recorders in our class set. The Romeo Concert Chorus has begun for music-loving fourthand fifth-grade students. This is the premier performing group of Romeo Elementary, which will be showcased at most major performing events within the school, community, and county. This performance group is voluntary participation; however, the student must exhibit satisfactory or above conduct in music to join. The Romeo Concert Chorus will meet from 7:20 to 7:55 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. You may be either a bus or car rider to participate. Some Wednesdays or Friday mornings may be scheduled for additional practice. Book Fair, stop into Building No. 1 and sign-in to be on campus prior to visiting the Media Center. We look forward to you coming out and seeing all the new and wonderful reading selections available. We also want to say thank you to Mrs. Anderson and Mr. Jones of the Media Center for organizing this event.

You may purchase your Coupons for Education in the morning at the Caf before school starts or in the Media Center during the day. Coupons for Education is just that, for education. Your $15 purchase not only saves you a lot of money, but the proceeds are used to buy classroom equipment and create special educational programs here at Dunnellon Middle School and throughout Marion County. Students are truly the beneficiaries of the Coupons for Education fundraiser. If you would like to stop in and purchase your Coupons for Education, we request you to sign-in at the Front Desk prior to going on campus. We would enjoy selling one to you!

Riverland News, Thursday, October 4, 2012 21 000CRR6 000CSVX 0 0 0 C T X 9 Birds eye view JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsThis Sandhill Crane kept an eye on visitors Monday in the parking lot outside of Riverside Trading, next to the Riverland News on East Pennsylvania Avenue. contractor for the job. That was done months ago and the contract was recently signed, James said. Then a problem with soil testing this summer showed high amounts of phosphate shavings in the soil on the property where officials had planned to construct the new club, slated to be built on 5.6 acres of land across from Wal-Mart. James issued a call for help, asking local business owners or anyone to donate sand approximately 4,000 cubic yards, or 1.2 million pounds because of the cost. James targeted the initial amount to have sand trucked in at almost 30 percent, or $250,000, of the $840,000 Federal Community Development Block Grant. That money would have put a dent in the building officials hope for completion by spring 2013. The city, which is offering an incentive package including water and high-speed fiber, postponed any monetary assistance until club officials could get the contractor to come down on its price to install a sewer lift station. Once the contractor did so, the City Council approved a $35,000 gift from Community Redevelopment Area funds to help the Boys & Girls Club offset the cost of the needed infrastructure. Its really, really beginning to pick up, James said about the pieces of the puzzle falling into place. I think you will be pleasantly surprised what that facility will do for the city. Its on the roadway, or the gateway to the community. When people see the new road that will be cut through there, theyre going to see where people have invested in their kids, in their community. I hope we can live up to all of the expectations. James said his main goal is seeing the community make a longtime investment in the youths. Its important we have a place for them to go, he explained. So we can work with them beyond the school day. James was quick to point out this will be a facility adults can use, too. Officials plan to have a tennis court placed on the property, as well as multi-use court that can be used for either volleyball or basketball. Additionally, there will be playground equipment as well. (The public) will have access to the courts, James said. Its a good partnership James said his longterm wish is to see an aquatic center constructed at the new facility. I still believe, not in my time though, well see an aquatic center there, he said. Thats way down the road. Its hard for me to believe that we have a city on two rivers, and we dont have an aquatic center for kids to learn to swim. I think its an ideal place. Currently, James said, club officials are being told it could take up to six months to complete the new facility. He said they are optimistic that timeframe will be met, but it all depends on if there are any change orders during the project. Were still a point were we have people who will be able to give it their undivided attention, he explained. I think itll be up in a short time. I dont expect the children to be in their current facility when summer rolls around again. James said the club will host fundraisers so it can buy necessary computer equipment and furniture for the new facility. He noted several people in the community have already stepped up with donations. The community has really come aboard, he said. The property in question is owned by the Marion County School District, but a deal was stuck to lease the property to the Boys & Girls Club of Marion County, Dunnellon branch, for $1 per year for the next 50 years. The new facility will replace the clubs current building, which consists of a modular unit across from Ernie Mills Park on Bostick Street. Despite the unforeseen delays, James said officials are still within guidelines of the grant process and would not lose the funds the organization was awarded.

Undersheriff Kuhn requested that he be allowed to take an indefinite leave of absence without pay during the investigation. Sheriff Dean granted the leave of absence without pay.

Its been a long two years in the making for a new Boys & Girls Club facility, but within the next three weeks, dirt will begin to move, a new roadway and sewer lift station installed off U.S. 41, and the property that once was home to the old middle school will show signs of life once again. I think we have finally reached the plateau where will see some movement out there soon, said Bobby James, former Dunnellon High principal whos lead the charge for the past several years to see a new facility constructed in Dunnellon. Were at point now where well start moving dirt soon. Were in great shape. Everything is falling into place, James said, noting a precise ground-breaking date has not been established. Delayed by site plans, problems with the soil and funding issues, the new facility which had been slated to be operation in 2011, will likely be ready for children by 2013. Initially, the project was delayed by finding the right Bobby James Annual 5kwalk slated Event will benefit ACSThousands of Marion County residents, breast cancer survivors, business and community members will join together and put on their pink bras at the American Cancer Societys Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk to fight breast cancer and provide hope to all people facing the disease. This noncompetitive, fundraising event will unite the community in celebrating breast cancer survivors, educate men and women about the importance of early detection and prevention, and raise money to fund lifesaving research and support programs that will further the progress against this disease. The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk will be at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, at Silver Springs, Natures Theme Park in Ocala. Registration will open at 6:30. Participants will NATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsKelly McNeill, an RT(R)(M), for Advanced Imaging Center in Ocala, assists a patient with an MRI screening recently. Advanced Imaging Center has paired up with the Michelle-O-Gram Foundation for the past three years to provide low-cost screenings for women who cannot afford the otherwise costly medical tests. Resident on road for Defeat Obama Tour Elizabeth Letchworths resume is chock full of a long list of accomplishments and accolades from her 26-career in the U.S. Senate, where she began working as a Senate page in 1975 to serving as the first woman as the United States Senate Secretary for the Majority (Republican). During her career, she also served in the Senate Republican Cloakroom and becoming the first female Cloakroom assistant to a position as director of the Senate Legislative Scheduling. Letchworth has developed her previous political experience and current affiliations to develop the website GradeGov.com. She is a weekly columnist for the Sunshine State Battling back Michelle-O-Gram continues its fight against breast cancer Three years ago, after 36year-old Michelle Standridge died after a short battle with breast cancer, her family and friends banded together, knowing they needed to do more to promote awareness and help women obtain costly screenings. Their other reason was simple: they didnt want other families to endure the loss of a wife, mother, sister, niece or friend. So the family and friends of the longtime Dunnellon resident plotted their course and created the Michelle-O-Gram Foundation, a local charity, which assists local women with mammogram testing. In three years, theyve assisted more than 400 women with screenings and diagnostic mammograms, as well as breast ultrasound exams. (It) seems mind-boggling, Sherry Roberts said of the number of women the nonprofit charity has assisted in the past three years. Weve always got such a list for women waiting for the next available spot. The Michelle-O-Gram Foundation continually hosts a variety of fundraising events such as the annual Horizon of Hope Luncheon, yard sales and such. This year, the group has scheduled a charity fishing tournament. Every dollar that comes in Special to the Riverland News Sandra Moore enjoyed the festivities surrounding last years Making Strides Against Cancer Walk. This years event is scheduled for Nov. 3 at Silver Springs, Natures Theme Park.Special to the Riverland News Diagnosis was bomb going off For former Dunnellon resident Suzanne Moore, April will always be a month shell remember, perhaps not with fondness. It was more than two years ago when the mother of two had a bomb dropped on her. Moore had been told she had a breast cancer. It just floored me, I didnt know how to act, Moore recalled. It was like someone dropped a bomb on me. It was an aggressive cancer, too, Stage 3, Invasive, said Moore, a 1981 graduate of Dunnellon High. Before she underwent tests to make sure, Moore had an uneasy feeling about a lump in her breast. But a self examination sounded the alarm. The first time was weird, never felt anything like it, explained Moore, who moved to nearby Belleview 10 years ago. It was like a big huge knot out of nowhere. Within like a week FUNDRAISERSThe Michello-O-Gram Foundation has two fundraisers planned for the next two Saturdays, starting with the annual Horizon of Hope Luncheon at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Rainbow Springs Golf & Country Club, followed by the Fishing for the Fight, a benefit redfish and trout tournament, Oct. 13 at TJs Bait and Tackle in Dunnellon.

she had scheduled a doctors appointment. She had all of her testing done within a day the mammogram and ultrasound. I wanted to know right away, Moore said. She began radiation and chemotherapy treatments for her cancer within a week of the diagnosis. Moore didnt take the time to sit around and feel sorry for herself, she jumped right into activities designed to raise awareness for not just breast cancer, but cancer in general. I had real long hair, so the first thing I did was I gave my hair to Locks for Love, Moore said. I dove right into American Cancer Society, I just started doing fundraising. I went crazy with fundraising. I did three Relays and Making Strides all in one year. I did a lot of fundraising and events. I just dove into helping other people. Almost 16 months into her treatment for breast cancer, and nearly complete with chemotherapy treatments, Moore said the alarm went off again. She felt another lump in the same breast. Moore asked doctors to rescan her breast, just to be on the safe side. The result was the same cancer. It was just a different type of breast cancer, but in same side, she explained. It was like out of the box. They never had a case like mine. I just had a weird feeling, felt a little knot. Within a week of the second diagnosis, Moore had a radical mastectomy completed. Three months after her second cancer diagnosis, Moore had a heart attack. Since her initial diagnosis with cancer, she has undergone six surgeries. She opted not to undergo more chemotherapy treatments. Moore is scheduled to have a hysterectomy in the coming months. Shell have to wait until sometime next year to have reconstructive surgery on her breasts, but she was adamant that she not have more chemotherapy treatments. It was a no brainer, she said of the decision to not have more chemo treatments. The physical toll was evident, Moore said. An active volunteer with Special Olympics Florida since 2006, she said she knew it was time to step down from her role as basketball coach. She became involved in Special Olympics when her father used to help a neighbor, whose child had special needs. Moore said she can relate, having a 12-year-old son with Aspergers Syndrome. It was really, really hard, she said about giving up the position. I still did county games, coaching and scoring. But I couldnt really do the coaching, coaching that I really loved to do. My body just cannot take that. Moore said she hasnt really taken a sigh of relief and wont until she has her other breast removed and the reconstruction completed. Thats when I can breathe a sigh of relief, she said, noting every six months she has to have a mammogram and a scan. The first thing shed love to do once that is complete, is take a cruise, more specifically a Relay For Life cruise. This is the first year theyve done them, she said. That would be fabulous to do. goes back into the community, Roberts explained, noting the Foundation has assisted women from Marion, Citrus, Levy, Sumter and Lake counties. Theres no administrative overhead to deal with, our supplies are donated. Every dollar we get goes right back into the community. The Michelle-O-Gram Foundation had plenty of ground to cover before it was able to provide services to the 400 women within a five-county radius its assisted with in covering the costs of the highpriced screenings. Foundation members were able to strike a deal with Advanced Imaging Center, negotiating a deal ensuring low-cost screenings for those being helped by the Foundation. Once women are approved for assistance, its up to them to schedule appointments, Roberts said. They stepped up, they really did, Roberts said, explaining they give us their lowest reimbursement price for the screenings. Roberts said Standridge, a humble woman who shied away from the limelight, would be taken aback by the number of women assisted through the group named in her honor. I would have to she would have never imagined the number of womens lives she has impacted, Roberts said. Even those within the organization have been humbled by their efforts to assist women, no matter their income levels. Those who need assistance are not turned away, Roberts explained. Its a wonderful feeling that to know youve been able to help somebody. We couldnt do it without the hundreds of people who commit their time. We seem like were very small part in a big, big picture.

C need more than sneakers for this years walk, as they are encouraged to Put On Your Pink Bra. The Put On Your Pink Bra campaign empowers walkers to wear pink bras in support of the fight against breast cancer. All across the state, walkers will sport pink bras to represent a personal breast cancer journey or the journey of a survivor they know. We got a phenomenal response from walkers across the state last year when we launched the Put On Your Pink Bra campaign, said Robin Arnold, 2012 event chair. Participants turned out in waves, clad in beautiful pink bras, uniquely decorated with everything from glitter and sequins to feathers. Each person who puts on a pink bra used it to tell the personal story of the effects of breast cancer on his or her life, whether as a survivor or a supporter. This years Put On Your Pink Bra campaign is a part of the American Cancer Societys Making Strides Against Breast Cancer program. Money raised through these events funds breast cancer research, provides up-to-date breast cancer information, ensures everyone has access to breast cancer screening and treatments regardless of income and provides services that improve the quality of life for patients and their families. Breast cancer has a profound impact on Floridians as the state ranks second in the nation for the number of new breast cancer cases and third in the number of related deaths, said Diana Schwartz, community representative for the Marion Unit of the American Cancer Society. But out of these grim numbers comes the hope we create when we gather and work together to fight this disease. The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is not only a way to raise funds for that fight, but also gives us a chance to gather to celebrate survivors. The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk supports the American Cancer Societys unique mission to fight cancer on all four fronts: research, education, advocacy and patient services.

River views Article full of misinformation; heres the truthLast Thursdays Riverland Newswas full of misinformation promulgated by the Dunnellon City Council. Mayor Ward argued for approval of the latest version of the settlement agreement to the Bert Harris lawsuit brought by the Rainbow River Ranch developer. Without knowing the contents of the agreement or not caring I dont know which is worse he proceeded to proclaim that the city had spent $600,000 on legal fees defending against this lawsuit. That is mind boggling and I dont believe it. How could a part-time city attorney rack up such costs? Rainbow River Conservation (RRC) has been involved as an intervenor since March 2010 and we have spent less than $25,000 on our attorney. Mayor Ward also again brought up the notion that each citizen of Dunnellon would have been on the hook for approximately $4,000 if the city lost the lawsuit. How does this compare with the $22 million bond debt that the city has incurred in the past two years, which puts each Dunnellon citizen at risk for $13,000? This is real debt. Who says the city, acting competently, would have lost the lawsuit? There are many reasons to believe the developer would not prevail. Now the settlement agreement not only threatens the Rainbow River, but it promises the developer millions of dollars worth of water and sewer capacity and infrastructure, a new utility services building, and various other unwarranted perks. The City Council thinks that there will be a boon from ad valorem taxes, but development studies have shown that services provided far outweigh the tax gain, particularly when there is a negligible developer impact fee. Some people think that the increased population would make city businesses grow, but it is more likely big box stores would come and drive the small businesses out. I am not against growth, but what the city is doing is not smart growth. Mayor Ward also went into a denunciation of a group who changed the citys comprehensive plan in 2008 and brought about other changes to the detriment of the city. I believe he was talking about RRC members, including me. He has a bad memory. He has been the mayor since 2007 and only the Council can change the citys comprehensive plan. The only substantive influences we had were helping to write the Tree Ordinance and garnering $3.2 million from a state grant to buy the Blue RRC playing obstruction game Good luck to Jeff Bryan in his endeavor to quit smoking. Im lucky I was never a smoker, but I know plenty of people who are, and have been, and I believe the nicotine habit is a very hard one to kick. I think the only thing Ive ever been addicted to was my granddaughter when she was first born. I swear I had an obsession to be with her and I saw her every single day for the first two and a half years of her life. Once I set eyes on her and saw she was OK, I was OK. In some ways, Im still addicted to her, only now its a mental thing more than a physical one. Oh, and there was that huge craving I used to have with salt. I guess you could call that an addiction. I would salt things before even tasting them. I eventually learned that could kill me and I quit doing it. Then there was that guy back in the late s, but now Im digressing. My own husband has tried to quit smoking at least five times since weve been together, but has not been successful at it. Take the cigarettes away and he becomes a real grouch. In fact, one time I ended up going to the store and buying some for him. Sorry, I know that was wrong and I should have supported him, but a wife can only take so much. He also tried the patch once and it had a very adverse effect on him. I hope hell be able to do it one day so we can grow very old together. Russell has an extremely addictive personality. He never met a snack cake he didnt like, and if he likes something he goes to the extreme. No box of Krispy Kreme donuts is safe with him around. He actually goes through addictive stages. We have had the golfing phase, the fishing phase, the boogie board phase, a boating phase, camping gear, motorcycles and guitars. Now, hes into bartering and trading. Each time we enter one of these stages it requires all the bells and whistles from A to Z. For instance in the golf phase, he not only needed the lefthanded golf clubs and the golf cart, but also the Polo outfits, the proper shoes and the expensive golf balls. He would golf every single day. When he was into guitars, he never had enough and every guitar was his dream come true. I asked him how many of them he could play at one time. I finally had to tell him unless he was going to be the next Paul McCartney he needed to put an end to this habit pretty quickly. The motorcycle phase was probably the most expensive. He actually came riding up on a brand new Honda to surprise me. The surprise was I wasnt amused. Then, he had to have chrome everything, new mirrors, leather saddlebags and custom made helmets.

Rather than attempt to catch the guided missile, I simply jumped into the clear sparkle of the river in question and swam a short distance away. Having no fear of salt or burning, my eyes opened and I was in that special place, that other world that only those who have been blessed to frolic in the Rainbow River know. Where eel grass blossoms have the tiniest of air bubbles, and they sway in the current like tiny fireflies. As I broke the surface feeling 10 years younger, refreshed and strangely optimistic, I could hear my friend saying come back, this s serious. So I paddled against the current back to the dock where we were seated and toweled off. He was right. It is serious and we need to talk about it. Listen, I said. You gotta stop doing that. That what? said Walt, still a little offended. That thing where you make these horrendous leaps and presumptions as to my motivations, I said. Really I do not want to club baby seals or starve children, and if we disagree about how best to protect our environment and the Rainbow River that does not mean that I want to destroy it. Its just that we want to save it in different manners. But you said you wanted to see a resort located on the Rainbow River, my friend Walt said. That would destroy it. I am sorry you cant see it Walt, but I believe that is the only thing that will save it, I explained. So I might ask you the same thing? Why do you want to destroy our river, Walt? This almost sent another missile my way. Now I know Walt truly loves the river he recently purchased his home on. I know he loves it so much that he believes it is his to share with those he sees fit, and those he doesnt see fit shouldnt be on it. He loves it so much, he built this really big dock on it so he could be out looking at it all the time. Watching it like a rabid guard dog. Walt, I have thought about it a long time and I believe that water is a resource, I said. A resource that is Key ground rules for productive discussion In 2007, an environmental group pushed through Comprehensive Plan changes for the city of Dunnellon, which reduced zoning density of Rainbow River Ranch property. This prompted the property owner to file a Bert Harris lawsuit against the city to protect their vested property rights. For those of you unfamiliar, a Bert Harris lawsuit is about as serious as a heart attack, being the only court action in the state of Florida, other than capital murder, requiring a 12-person jury to determine damages. Subsequently, this environmental group opposed any settlement between the city and the property owner. It advocated the city go to trial and pushed the city to spend legal fees fighting for their cause. In 2009, after having three retired former businessmen as city managers, the city was able to hire an academically trained, experienced professional city manager, Lisa Algiere. Ms. Algiere determined the city was spending funds to fight the ideology of the environmental group, which was inconsistent with the best interest of the 1,733 citizens of the city. She approached the property owner with the intention of finding a way to settle this lawsuit. Ms. Algiere and the property owner worked tirelessly to achieve an amiable resolution that would meet the needs of the city, the environment and the property owner. The environmental group fought the settlement agreement the city and property owner negotiated and continued to demand the city not settle and go to trial. If the city went to a Bert Harris trial and lost, the damages could cost $6 to 8 million divided by about 1,500 parcels within the city limits, or $4,000 to $6,000 levy per parcel. There are property owners within the city who own more than one parcel who could be facing parcel levies of at least $10,000 to $12,000 or more. This judgment number is for damages, and does not include any punitive damages or legal fees. In 2010, when the property owner and city took the settlement agreement to the judge, the environmental group had convinced the state Department of Economic Opportunities, the former Department of Community Affairs, to join See LETTERS page 5 See VAUGHN page 8 Fred Ward Audrey Beem See JERSEY page 8 See RRC page 5 JERRY VAUGHN Special to the Riverland News

Run Park and give it to the city, and there was the other $600,000 grant we garnered for the improvements to the park. Then there was Councilwoman Penny Fleeger, who chastised mayoral candidate Nathan Whitt for politicking when all he did was ask questions and make suggestions to the council. Admittedly, Whitt was taken aback when he heard Mayor Ward say he was granting the public a courtesy when he allowed them to speak to a public issue. Fleeger launched into a tirade against Whitt, punctuating her remarks with expletives. When I stood up in the back of the hall saying this is ridiculous and turned to leave, Fleeger yelled out from the dais you are the worst of them, Dr. Eno. I returned to the podium, but Ward shut the meeting down and wouldnt let anybody speak. I told Fleeger that I had let many of her false accusations go by but that I wouldnt in the future. Then, City Development Director Harold Horne jumped up, wagged his finger in my face and yelled the next time you speak to her like that you will answer to me. There needs to be a change in Dunnellon. The city has the highest tax rate in the region and nearly the highest utility rates. Greenlight was poorly planned and introduced and promises to be a heavy drain on the city. Spending has to be reined in and relations have to be improved with the neighboring communities who support Dunnellons businesses. I dont think this city council has the wisdom or demeanor to do it.Burt Eno Rainbow SpringsPolice department collects unwanted pillsThe Dunnellon Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) teamed up for the National Drug Take Back Day Saturday, Sept 29, to give the public an opportunity to safely dispose of their expired, unused, and unwanted medications. The collection took place in the police departments parking lot. During the event, the department netted slightly more than 50 pounds of pills. The DEA picked up the pills and will properly dispose them. It is important that we provide this opportunity to members of the community to safely dispose of their unwanted or expired medications without contaminating our environment and water systems. Last year, 552,161 pounds (276 tons) of prescription drugs were turned in at more than 5,600 sites operated by the DEA and close to 4,300 state and local law enforcement partners. In the last four years, Take Back events have taken in more than 1.5 million pounds nearly (775 tons) of pills. This addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that waste away in the home medicine cabinet are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Unfortunately today the rate of prescription drug abuse throughout the U.S. is alarmingly high. And worse, the majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained right from family and friends. We would also like to thank the citizens who graciously brought nonperishable foods and toiletry items to help the Annie Johnson Senior & Family Service Center whose pantry. A total of 14 grocery bags full of much needed donated items will be delivered and will help those in need in the Dunnellon area. Joanne Black Chief, Dunnellon Police Department them in an intervention in the lawsuit. So now its legal fight was being funded by the state. The intervention required the judge to send the city, property owner, state DEO, and environmental group back to negotiate a new settlement. The property owner, city and the state DEO have all negotiated in good faith to find an agreement that satisfied all parties. In addition, the state DEP has furnished a letter stating there are no environmental issues with this settlement. When we go back to judge, the environmental group will be the only interveners. This group has caused the City to incur $603,000 in legal expenses to date. Not to mention what the state and the property owner have spent on legal fees. Just think of what this city could have accomplished with $603,000 a new firehouse or police station? Burt Eno, the president of Rainbow River Conversation, stated on the front page of the Sept. 27 edition of theRiverland News, We will fight settlement. We want to see a battle in court. Eno said. My board, 100 percent, feels that way. Enos assertion that this agreement was done behind closed doors without the presence of RRC is intellectually dishonest. This past summer, their was a meeting called by the head of the DEO at the Rainbow Springs head spring, which included Eno and his group, city staff and the property owner. The head of DEO had come here from Tallahassee to be a part of the settlement. Enos group refused to be part of any agreement. It seems it is his way or the highway. Done behind closed doors, indeed! If Enos group wants to continue their fight against the settlement in court, its legal fees will no longer be funded by the city or state, but rather, their own resources. This environmental group has not negotiated in good faith and continues its intransigent demand that the city go to trial. Ponce Inlet went to trial and lost and now it faces a $35 to $58 million judgment, not including punitive damages or legal fees. They have raised their millage rate to just pay legal fees and still face damages and punitive fees that will be determined by a 12-person jury. This is truly a settlement that the city, state, property owner and the public can be proud of. There are no environmental issues, per the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The only conclusion one can determine is: the group that still opposes the settlement is not looking to reach a solution, but its only mission is to obstruct.Fred Ward is the mayor of the city of Dunnellon.

Elizabeth Armistead Hightower, 97Elizabeth Armistead Hightower, 97, of Concord, passed away Friday, Sept. 28, 2012. A memorial service will be at 2 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012 at Epworth United Methodist Church in Concord. Dr. Glenn Myers, Jr. will officiate. The family will receive friends following the service at the church. Mrs. Hightower was born on March 18, 1915 in Montgomery, Ala.

Jenkins of Concord; son, John Peach Hightower Jr. of Palm Springs, Calif.; 6 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. Remembrances for the family may be left at www.ladysfuenralhome.co m. Ladys Funeral Home & Crematory is assisting the family of Mrs. Hightower. If I heard it once, I have heard it a million times and this week was no exception. In fact, the words carelessly tumble from my lips on many occasions, some of which have been perilously near the conclusion of my sermons. Most preachers never conclude their sermons, they just quit when they cannot indulge the congregation another minute longer. Someone once asked a famous preacher what it meant when he said, Now, in conclusion ... He thought for a moment and then replied, Nothing. Preachers are not the only ones inflicted with this verbosity virus. Watching a news broadcast recently, I heard a politician tumble headlong into the same abyss; Were going to make some changes around here, he proclaimed, and thats my final word on the subject. It does not really matter which politician pontificated thusly, for all of them have said it at one time or another and usually it is never their final word on any subject. Several things are wrong with that statement. First, when a politician uses the word were he never means to include himself. It is just a word he uses to confuse the subject at hand. Someone once made this observation, if all the politicians were laid end to end I would not be surprised. Secondly, the only change most politicians are interested in is the change in my pocket. They have committees devoted to figuring out how they can change the change in my pocket to their pocket. The slickness to which they do this is most remarkable. Thirdly, there is no such thing as a final word among politicians. Every politician insists on having the last word on any subject even though he knows nothing about the subject at hand.

The Democrats have the left side, the Republicans have the right side and they have one intent; mouth in motion at all times. Since they share the same mouth, they both sound alike. When a politician has nothing to say you can be sure he will say it most profusely. Today, the only difference between a Republican and a Democrat is the spelling. One can spell in the other cannot. Every politician has two faces, before the election and after election. What a politician says before being elected has absolutely no relationship with what he or she will say after the election. The only thing absolutely certain is the newly elected politician will have a lot to say, but not much. Once elected their only strategy is to stay elected. They will do everything and anything to get my vote. I vote they all be electro-cuted. Nothing would be cuter. One thing that can be said about the political institution in our country, it is an equal opportunity liars club. Women have as much opportunity to join this truth-challenged extravaganza as the men. I do not know who makes better liars, men or women. The feminine side of this auspicious group has made a miraculous progress in catching up to their male counterparts. They both seemed quite adept in the practice. Many elected officials go to great lengths to keep their constituency from knowing where they stand on the issues. They are seated on committees so they do not have to reveal where they stand. They are good at sitting and pontificating but bad when it comes to standing for anything, which makes them believe their constituency will fall for anything. And we usually do. The lawmakers of our day are great change agents, to use a contemporary phrase. Their opinion on important issues changes with every new poll published. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on your point of view, for our friendly politicians, opinion polls can be given every hour on the hour. Of course, the more important the issue the more the politician reforms his opinion. A politician should have the cleanest mind in our country because they change it so much. Unfortunately, the exchange is usually down. Perhaps the best final words any politician could utter are, I wont run again. Usually when a politician says this, it means he is currently running from something or someone. Regrettably, the only change that comes with a new election is the name on the office door of the public servant. The bolts and nuts of our political system can be boiled down to; the politicians bolt for or from any excuse and we are nuts for electing them to any office. I sometimes get weary of all this superfluous change. It is true; the more things change the more they remain the same. What I want to change never does and what I do not want to change does. You can imagine what comfort I get from the Bible that never changes despite the efforts of some people. Two verses are particularly comforting to me. One from the Old Testament: For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. (Malachi 3:6 KJV.) One from the New Testament: Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8 KJV.) When it comes to final words, I want that word to come from someone who will not capriciously change that word and upset my life. I can always trust Jesus Christ to give me a word I can always count on.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P.O. Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Riverland News, Thursday, October 4, 2012 7 First Congregation to host Interfaith Alliance The Interfaith Alliance of Marion County will sponsor a community conversation on the value of differences religious, ethnic and cultural at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 8, at First Congregational United Church of Christ, 7171 State Road 200. Marion County represents a 1 percent microcosm of our countrys population with its citizenry reflecting not only the ethnic complexion of the old South but also the diversity introduced by streams of new residents of European, Caribbean, Latin American, African and Asian background, said the Rev. Dr. Harold McSwain, Jr., pastor of the host church, who will moderate the event. They include Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and Bahai among others who are so enriching our civic life. While The Interfaith Alliance strongly supports first amendment rights of religious freedom and expression for all, we also wish to address the distinction between mere tolerance of differences and the progressive strengthening and acceptance of the rights of all segments of our society during the history of our young nation. Panel participants include the Rev. Edward Bland, pastor of the Greater Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church; Larry Collins, member of the Islamic Center of Ocala and vice president of The Interfaith Alliance; Judge Sandra Edwards-Stephens of the Fifth Circuit Court; Barbara Fitos, executive director of The Community Foundation; Rabbi Zeev Harari of Temple Beth Shalom; and Rev. Peggy Hostetler, pastor of the Oakbrook Center for Spiritual Living. The event is free and open to the public with a reception to follow in the adjacent community center.

He spends hours on the computer browsing for deals and then turns them into a profit. However, his addictive personality wont let him rest. If he trades for a fourwheeler, he then has to make the ATV the best in the county. When he trades for a new computer, he then needs the best speakers, a top-notch webcam and a larger monitor. I think you get the picture. Many of my friends tell me this is just a guy thing boys and their toys. I am waiting for the make money phase. That will be one addiction I think we can both live with. 8 Riverland News, Thursday, October 4, 2012 000CTQ7 P AY FOR P AY FOR P AY FOR 3 M ONTHS ... 3 M ONTHS ... 3 M ONTHS ...

Now I cant think of a better way for that water to be valuable in the river bed, where it belongs, better than putting a resort on it. Tourists will come and businesses will grow and dollars from out of state will come into Florida. When that happens and some guy comes along asking for a consumptive water use permit to water his cattle, why you just are going to call Tallahassee and say, Look we are bringing millions of dollars into the state and providing loads of quality jobs dont mess that up. I think that is the strongest argument you are going to be able to make. Walts face was scrunched up in the most adorable way, he began to sputter, but nothing intelligible came forth. I began to think that perhaps there was some other agenda here, something I was missing and that Walt wasnt letting out. But they churn up the bottom and get on my dock, he nearly screamed. Oh, I see, I replied. Are we talking about the same thing, Walt? For a moment, I thought we were talking about the environment. Things such as dams, which block the rivers natural ability to cleanse itself, or the very real chance that some type of detrimental manufacturing might take place in the area. You do understand that there is a recharge area and that proximity to the rivers edge isnt really any different than several miles away as it concerns water recharge, I explained. Walt, if youre concerned about the view from your dock, then by all means, lets have a discussion about that. You have every right to be concerned about it and being reasonable adults, I am sure we can come up with a plan to address those concerns. However, if we are going to have a serious conversation about the preservation of the river and the environment you are going to have to stop behaving as if everyone who does not agree with you about how to protect it is out to destroy it. That is a childish way of thinking, and we have not had that many cold ones yet. JERSEYcontinued from page 4 VAUGHNcontinued from page 4

Newsas well as a featured contributor to both The Daily Caller.com and AmericaSpeakOn.org. Additionally, Letchworth is the chairwoman of the Marion County Habitat of Humanity affiliate. Now, that experience is leading to a spot for the now Dunnellon resident to embark on the Defeat Obama Tour, an ambitious five-plus-weeklong, 72stop tour that kicked off Sunday, ending in Chicago at President Obamas National Campaign Headquarters. Starting this past Tuesday, the longtime Senate employee embarked on what she described as a once in a lifetime opportunity. Letchworth joined 14 other political pundits, musicians, comedians as well as others Tuesday on the Defeat Obama Tour, which officially kicked off Sunday. For me, its a chance to energize the American people and inspire them and play a role in our elective system, she explained. Weve got 14 people embarking on this crazy endeavor. Weve got national singers, comedians, a few political speech types. We want to get people excited about this election. Letchworth said the tour is not a bash the current president effort, but a chance to educate voters about both candidates. Thats not to say Letchworth wasnt shy about who her obvious choice is to win the presidency in this Novembers General Election. Personally, we want Obama defeated, she said. This isnt because we dont personally dislike President Obama, we dont like his policies. Letchworth said she and the others on the tour want the American citizens to stand up and retake America and rebuild America. She said the organizers of the tour are asking for those who come to the numerous rallies scheduled to bring a photo, no larger than 3.5inch-by-5-inch, of something they built. Theyll collect these photos along the tour then construct them in to a giant sign at Obama campaign headquarters that says, Yes, we did build it! Hopefully, we will entertain you and inspire you at the same time, Letchworth said. Letchworth said shes been on tours before, but none of this magnitude or length. The most shes been on the road for a tour is three, four days at the most. We do have down time between stops, we sort of have our private time, as much as you can consider it private time, to call family, call friends, Letchworth said. As we get closer, we will get our game face on. People will start putting makeup on, the singers will do their voice warm-ups. Almost without fail we say a collective prayer. So when we get out of the bus, the show starts. Then, when the show is over, you decompress and you do all over it. It is hard to keep it fresh, but as soon as you walk outside, see people standing there, holding signs, singing and waving the American flag, its easy to be energized. Its the American people, they inspire us. Letchworth recalled a trip to a small, small town on the Gulf coast of Florida. There was enough of an area to park the bus and when everyone got off there was about 50 to 60 holding signs and waving flags by the interstate. You know what the trucks, the cars passing by were just honking their horns and waving, she said. That was inspiring, truly inspiring. Letchworth said this trip has to be very close to the top of personal achievements, because its an opportunity to remind people, Democracy is not a spectator sport. It is a nice, fun easy way to remind them your chance to give back, she explained. Go to the polls, hand out literature, get involved, get excited, freedoms arent free. I rank it up there, way at the top. For information about the Defeat Obama Tour and its schedule of stops, visit www.defeatobama tour.com.

The Wall Rives Post 58 American Legion Ladies Auxiliary seeks news members to its organization. The Ladies Auxiliarys Membership Drive is now in full swing to accept new members interested in volunteering for an organization to help the American Legion Veterans needs. After the formation of the American Legion, a number of women organizations wanted to become the official affiliation of the Legion. The women who had served so faithfully during the trying days of the war wanted to continue to serve. After careful consideration, the committee agreed that a new organization should be made up of the women most closely associated with the men of The Legion, and that these women would serve with The Legion, in peace as they had in war. The committee decided to build a new organization from the ground up, so the Auxiliary could then carry forward the phases of Legion activities more suitably performed by women. The American Legion Ladies Auxiliary founded its organization 90 years ago on God and Country. Then, and now everything, the Ladies Auxiliary is involved in can be traced back to the purposes in the Preamble that begins with those words, For God and Country. Like the sun, moon and stars, our founding principles of justice, freedom and democracy have stood the test of time. Our members can be proud of their association with an organization that puts God and Country first. Now, more than ever, we need to stand firm in expressing our belief in God DHS grad finishes basic trainingArmy Pvt. Manuel I.

RIVERLANDSPORTS 12 Riverland News, Thursday, October 4, 2012 000CTX6 Marc Navetta, Boys SwimmingMarc has been a team player all year, swimming events in duals meets that he normally doesnt swim. This weekend at the Conference Swim Meet in Orlando, the sophomore swam his best times in both the 50and 100-yard freestyles. Zahyrimar Otero, VolleyballIn three games last week, the senior had a total of 24 digs, seven aces, seven kills and three tips as the Lady Tigers continued searching for that elusive first victory of the season. She now plays every game with a smile and cheers on her team when she is not playing, coach Terry Weber said. Zahyrimar Otero Marc Navetta Lady Tigers volleyball continues effort to secure first win With only six regular games remaining, the Dunnellon High School volleyball team has just a few short weeks left to pick up a victory. I told the girls that they have the talent and now they have to want it, Dunnellon coach Terry Weber. I know they can, It was a rough week for Dunnellon, when the Lady Tigers traveled Thursday to Crystal River, going head-tohead against the Lady Pirates. The first game began with a few good serves, tips and some extensive volleys for the Lady Tigers. Later, Dunnellon began to fall behind on the scoreboard but quickly jumped back up. Ele Goodloe recorded 12 digs that proved her to be the game standout player. However, Dunnellon lost the first round, 24-14. Dunnellon assistant coach Dallas Towns, challenged the varsity team members on the bench to promise they would have fun before she sent them out. But the Lady Tigers spirit just couldnt be found on Crystal Rivers court. The second and third rounds were abrupt and seemed as if they were played in a short instant with Dunnellon falling, 25-8, 25-9. The Lady Tigers contest at Nature Coast was also an unfavorable night as Dunnellon lost in three sets, 25-18, 25-18 and 25-19. Jody Weber and Nicole Drew had 18 assists each. Dunnellon will have Senior Night Thursday. The four seniors on varsity will be escorted into the gym by their parents. A short biography will be said about each player, and then a JV player will give them a gift. We do it every year at our last home game of the season, Terry Weber said. It is their farewell from high school. SPORTS BRIEFS Golf course to host championshipRainbows End Golf Course will host the Twilight League 18-hole championship at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 13.

GAIGE EVANS For the Riverland News Dunnellon drops matches to Crystal River, Nature Coast Beach returns to school after missing spring for cancer treatments Michael Beach is more than a 17-year-old junior at Dunnellon High School, but as of July 2, he is cancer free. It all started Jan. 22 when he landed incorrectly on his neck in a wrestling match that the tests began. Doctors began checking Beachs neck, but after X-rays revealed swollen lymph nodes in his lungs, the doctors focus changed and quickly. Beach endured five X-rays, three CAT scans, one PET scan, two bronchioscopies, and one tracheotomy. Of the last three tests, two of the lung samples were crushed. I took so much radiation in that period of time, that I was practically glowing, said Beach with a laugh. After three months of agonizing tests and trepidation, Beach was diagnosed March 26 with Hodgkins Lymphona, stage four non-symptomatic. He received weekly treatments at Shands at the University of Florida and finished his sophomore year in hospital athome schooling. I hated not going to school because it was boring at my house, he explained. And it was hard to teach myself all of my school work. Spanish was definitely the hardest subject for me to grasp by myself. It was boring, sad and depressing that I could no longer go outside of my house. I missed going to church, school, wrestling, golf, work and friends houses. During the next four months he got a maximum of four hours of sleep a night, not too much different than his mother. He took a daily shot of GCSF, Prednisone, and Oxycodon for pain. My routine was basically: wake up at 7 and take pills, lie around the house, take more pills, go to bed, Beach explained. On his worst day, Beach was headed home from Gainesville when he had an allergic reaction to the chemotherapy drug. He developed a fever of 103 and went into shock. His mom took him back to Shands, where Raiders blank Tigers in JV action DHS offense strugglesDunnellon High School couldnt generate much offense Thursday, Sept. 27, against South Sumter at Ned Love Field, as the Raiders shut out the Tigers, 20-0, in junior varsity action. On a first-and-5 play, South Sumters Wade Sapp scored on a 46-yard run with 4:44 remaining in the first quarter as the Raiders converted the extra point for a 7-0 lead. Dunnellon (2-3) and South Sumter battled back and forth, vying to find the end zone. However, both teams failed to do so as the Raiders went into half time with a 7-0 lead. South Sumters Hector Vera opened the Raiders scoring in the third quarter with 48yard run. The extra point failed, giving South Sumter a 13-0 lead. Dunnellon intercepted the Raiders on their following drive, but the offense failed to move the ball, being forced to punt. South Sumter took advantage of the Tigers lack of offensive production. On the first play of the drive, the Raiders Darien Williston ran in the touchdown and South Sumter converted the extra point for a 20-0 lead with 1:09 remaining in the game. Dunnellon plays at 7 p.m. today at Ned Love Field against Nature Coast Technical. DHS ATHLETES OF THE WEEKPRESENTED BY GREENLIGHT DUNNELLON COMMUNICATIONS No. 1 South Sumter roughs up Dunnellon BUSHNELL The topranked Raiders proved too much for Dunnellon Friday night, as South Sumter toppled the Tigers, 35-7, for their fourth consecutive loss. Dunnellon took the opening kick off, but couldnt solver the Raiders defense. The Raiders, the No. 1 team in Class 4A, showed why they are considered the best in their class, rattled off a pair of first-half touchdowns. On a third-and-16 for Dunnellon, South Sumters Neal Keanu intercepted the ball near the goal line and returned it about 30 yards. From there, the Raiders offense took over, marching their way down the field when Clay Simmons capped the drive with a 19-yard pass to Tafario Mckrachon with 7:49 remaining in the first quarter as South Sumter took a 7-0 lead. After forcing the Tigers to punt, the Raiders went right back to work. On second-and-9, Simmons broke down the right sideline for a 32-yard score as South Sumter extended its lead to 14-0. We really need to focus on our special teams, said Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley, whose team has lost four straight since a seasonopening victory against West Port. I believe that really hurt us this game.

Middle School Book Fair kicks off Tuesday There will be a DMS Band Parent meeting from 6 to 7 p.m. today in the DMS Band Room with our Band Director, Ms. Roblow. DMS Fall Scholastic Book Fair kicks off Tuesday, Oct. 9, and continues through Monday, Oct. 15 in the DMS Media Center. The Book Fair is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The DMS Scholastic Book Fair offers students and parents an opportunity to view the newest and best selections of middle grade books right here on the DMS Campus. Coming to the DMS Book Fair with your child is a great Be There experience. Together you can find books to enjoy and discuss while you promote the love of reading that will last for a lifetime. Dunnellon Middle School loves to read and we ask our parents to be the firstline influence of good reading behavior by setting an example of positive reading habits. Finding just 20 minutes a day to sit-down and read for the joy of it is all we need to set the reading habit in place. Parents if you would like to come in and visit the Supporting education vital for childrens future Recently an area paper published a report from the Census Bureau about the income levels in Marion County. The numbers were not surprising, but relating them to the children in our public schools makes it meaningful. The current definition of the poverty level is a family of 4 with an income of $23,000 a year. So if a parent has a full time job making $12 per hour, is married and has two children, they are living in or near the poverty level. Few of our parents have a full time job and many do not make $12 an hour. The report continues that approximately 1 child in 3 is living in poverty. Why does that matter? The families cant afford magazines, newspapers, computers, Internet or iPads. This puts their children at a disadvantage in handling the information they need to learn in school. They also dont have the experiences of going to music concerts, visiting museums or going to historical locations around the state to relate to the topics being covered in school. When a national test refers to an elevator or escalator, many children in Dunnellon have never seen or experienced one. When a text book refers to living in a high-rise apartment building, riding a local bus to any business or maybe taking a subway or elevated train to work, Dunnellon MCFR Fire Prevention Month Dunnellon Elementary School third-graders Brian Floid, left, and Tiara Howard, right, ask Scott Shockley, a firefighter/paramedic with Marion County Fire Rescue, Monday about the protective gear he is required to wear when entering a fire. Marion County Fire Rescue, in cooperation with Marion County Public Schools, will visit public elementary schools within Marion County to teach more than 20,000 children about fire safety in October through its 2012 campaign: Get Down. Get Out. Get On the Phone. National Fire Prevention Week runs Oct. 7 to 13; however, MCFR extended this weeklong national initiative into a month-long local campaign in an effort to reach more children, prevent fires and save lives. Reaching out to kids during school hours helps spur conversations at home about the need for smoke alarms and the importance of establishing escape plans. MCFRs 2012 campaign includes classroom curriculum, hands-on presentations, a video public service announcement and a countywide poster contest.

The district is customizing and testing the app now. The free app, called School Connect, is available in the Apple and Android app stores to users of smart phones and other appenabled devices. Once users download the free app, they can choose to receive push notifications from any school. Similar to text messages, these notifications can be immediate in case of an emergency. In the future, they may also remind subscribers about early release days, events, athletic competitions, club meetings, and other district and school functions. The app, provided free to the district and users at no taxpayer expense, links to the Parent Portal with student grades, school lunch menus, school addresses and contact information, school web sites, and education-related resources. It also provides GPS mapping and navigation links and multiple language options including Spanish. The app was created by School Connect, an Oklahoma-based mobile app developer for K-12 school systems. Within 24 hours of its initial launch in October 2011, School Connect was a Top 25 free app at the Apple store. To date, the app is available in 93 school districts in eight states including Florida. The app will enhance Marion County Public Schools efforts to improve communications with parents, students, employees, and other stakeholders.

the ball on a kickoff, allowing sophomore Kane Parks to recover the ball and led to Dunnellons first, and only, touchdown of the game. On first-and-10, senior quarterback Jordan Boley threw a 34-yard scoring strike to senior Andre Jackson as the Tigers converted the extra point and cut the Raiders lead to 14-7 just before half time. Dunnellon would get no closer in the second half as South Sumter scored 21 unanswered points to put the game well out of reach. The Raiders opened the second half with a quick scoring strike as South Sumters Davarreus Gibson caught a long pass at the 3-yard line with 11:46 showing on the clock in the third quarter that pushed its lead to 21-7. South Sumter capped its scoring in the fourth quarter on a fourth-and-6 play when Simmons threw a 12-yard pass to Ladovick Gibson for the touchdown. Our offensive line was the strongest thing we had this game, said Beasley. We always play hard, and there is room for some improvement. We have a tough schedule this year, but we will make it work. Dunnellon enters perhaps the toughest part of its schedule this week, according to Beasley. The Tigers have five games remaining including three District 5A-5 contests against Santa Fe, Belleview and Crystal River. Plus, Dunnellon hosts North Marion Nov. 12 at Ned Love Field. On the Tigers side is three of their final five games are at home. Dunnellon plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Santa Fe in a District 5A-5 contest.

SPORTS NEWS Chicas paces DHS cross countryEndurance and the will to not give up even if your legs turn to jelly is what the Dunnellon High School cross country team demonstrated Sept. 26 at Forest High School. Senior Victor Chicas ran a 17:09, taking first place for his second consecutive event. They are continuously improving, said Dunnellon coach Valerie Bazarte, noting she wanted give a shout out to freshman Travis Colston for running a 23:30 and getting 59th out of 100 people. That is pretty good. Sophomore Kevin Hanson had a time of 19:10 placing 16th. Jonathan Padilla with a time of 20 minutes placed 27th and DAndre Munford with a time of 20:33 placed 30th. Six schools, including Dunnellon, participated at the meet. The other schools included: West Port, Forest, Belleview, North Marion and Lake Weir. Submitted by Angel Richardson his body was numbed to stop the shaking. I just laid there like a wet noodle, Beach said. If I would have made it back to Dunnellon, I would have been in critical condition. Fortunately, he had a great support group that helped him through the hard times. His stepfather, Jim Ervin, had already had a daughter that had survived cancer at the age of 8. His mother, Lisa Ervin, was there to make sure all of his needs were met. My mom was helpful because she was my mental support, even though I never did break down, Beach said proudly. His older sister, Melaina Beach, was there to ensure his spirits were high, and he was happy. She would take my thoughts away from cancer by staying up late with me, he said. And we would go buy olives and eat them at night! His friends from his previous school in Williston made a Relay for Life team in honor of Michael and organized a car wash to raise money for the cause, and received donations for the American Cancer Society. Beach has been living cancer free for more than two months. JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsMichael Beach poses with his friends March 30 at a party thrown in his honor.

students have no point of reference. Improving the income levels in our area may be out of our control, but providing some of these experiences is not. The area schools have sponsored field trips and the very children needing them lack the financial resources to participate. We as a community could donate to the schools to help cover the cost of expanding the educational opportunities of our young people. We can support the Coupons for Education being sold at area schools as a majority of the funds remain at the school selling them. We can gather up the Box Tops for Education, drop them off at an area school, which also generates some money for the school. We can shop at Target, which donates a portion of all sales to your designated school. Our civic groups can designate a small amount each year to the schools to provide field trip scholarships to needy children. All of the little things combined can allow our schools to provide those experiences which will help our students perform better in the classroom and on standardized tests. All Fire Safety Posters are due to Mrs. Thomas by Tuesday, Oct. 9. The poster contest is from now through Oct. 8. There will be a winning poster from each class selected. Winning posters will be taken to Staff Development on Thursday, Oct. 11. Marion County Fire Rescue will be at the school from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Monday, Oct. 15, for all students in kindergarten, first and second grades. Romeo Round-Up: The time is once again upon us for our annual Romeo Round-Up, sponsored by Romeos PTO. We would like to make this year better than ever! Round-Up will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25. There is no school the following Friday. This is an enjoyable evening full of fun and free games for our children and their families. Safe Halloween is also a part of Romeo Round-Up. With the purchase of a Pumpkin Necklace, children and their siblings will be able to Trick-or-Treat at 20 different classrooms. Dont cook dinner! The PTO will be selling hamburgers, hotdogs and other refreshments that evening. Come join us for an evening of family fun. Please look for more information and Pumpkin Necklace order forms. Recorder sales for fourthand fifth-grade students are well under way, and the last day to purchase a recorder for this school year is Monday, Oct. 8. Fourthand fifthgrade students will learn how to play a pre-band instrument called the recorder this year. The recorder helps teach basic concepts of music reading, music notation, and music appreciation. As a courtesy to you, I make recorders available for purchase. There are two styles: an Economy onepiece recorder and a Professional two-piece recorder. Either style will be acceptable for music class, although the two piece recorder is easier to clean and usually makes a nicer sound. If you are unable to purchase a recorder this year, your student will be able to use one of the recorders in our class set. The Romeo Concert Chorus has begun for music-loving fourthand fifth-grade students. This is the premier performing group of Romeo Elementary, which will be showcased at most major performing events within the school, community, and county. This performance group is voluntary participation; however, the student must exhibit satisfactory or above conduct in music to join. The Romeo Concert Chorus will meet from 7:20 to 7:55 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. You may be either a bus or car rider to participate. Some Wednesdays or Friday mornings may be scheduled for additional practice. Book Fair, stop into Building No. 1 and sign-in to be on campus prior to visiting the Media Center. We look forward to you coming out and seeing all the new and wonderful reading selections available. We also want to say thank you to Mrs. Anderson and Mr. Jones of the Media Center for organizing this event. The Dunnellon Middle School Accelerated Reader (AR) Program through the Media Center has DMS students soaring! We are very proud to list the names of the following students who have met their AR (Accelerated Reader) goal already for the nine weeks! We extend our congratulations to these young reading enthusiasts for doing what we love to do here at DMS and that is to read!

These Tigers ROAR! There will be an FFA mandatory swine meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9, at the Fairgrounds. The Coupons for Education Campaign at Dunnellon Middle School is under way and we invite the Dunnellon community to take advantage of the hundreds of dollars you can save all for the low price of $15. You may purchase your Coupons for Education in the morning at the Caf before school starts or in the Media Center during the day. Coupons for Education is just that, for education. Your $15 purchase not only saves you a lot of money, but the proceeds are used to buy classroom equipment and create special educational programs here at Dunnellon Middle School and throughout Marion County. Students are truly the beneficiaries of the Coupons for Education fundraiser. If you would like to stop in and purchase your Coupons for Education, we request you to sign-in at the Front Desk prior to going on campus. We would enjoy selling one to you! Dean Thomas has a few seats left for the Dec. 3 through Dec. 7 annual Washington, D.C., trip. If you have an eighth-grade student that would like to go on this years trip, call Dean Thomas 465-6720 for information. Our cross country team, volleyball team and FFA members will continue their after-school practices and activities. Please see schedules below. Dunnellon Middle School would love to have your Box Tops for Education. If you have these little coupons and would like to see them put to good use, drop them off at Building No. 10, Discipline/ Attendance Office, or Building No. 1, Front Desk.

Riverland News, Thursday, October 4, 2012 21 000CRR6 000CSVX 000CTX9 Birds eye view JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsThis Sandhill Crane kept an eye on visitors Monday in the parking lot outside of Riverside Trading, next to the Riverland News on East Pennsylvania Avenue. contractor for the job. That was done months ago and the contract was recently signed, James said. Then a problem with soil testing this summer showed high amounts of phosphate shavings in the soil on the property where officials had planned to construct the new club, slated to be built on 5.6 acres of land across from Wal-Mart. James issued a call for help, asking local business owners or anyone to donate sand approximately 4,000 cubic yards, or 1.2 million pounds because of the cost. James targeted the initial amount to have sand trucked in at almost 30 percent, or $250,000, of the $840,000 Federal Community Development Block Grant. That money would have put a dent in the building officials hope for completion by spring 2013. The city, which is offering an incentive package including water and high-speed fiber, postponed any monetary assistance until club officials could get the contractor to come down on its price to install a sewer lift station. Once the contractor did so, the City Council approved a $35,000 gift from Community Redevelopment Area funds to help the Boys & Girls Club offset the cost of the needed infrastructure. Its really, really beginning to pick up, James said about the pieces of the puzzle falling into place. I think you will be pleasantly surprised what that facility will do for the city. Its on the roadway, or the gateway to the community. When people see the new road that will be cut through there, theyre going to see where people have invested in their kids, in their community. I hope we can live up to all of the expectations. James said his main goal is seeing the community make a longtime investment in the youths. Its important we have a place for them to go, he explained. So we can work with them beyond the school day. James was quick to point out this will be a facility adults can use, too. Officials plan to have a tennis court placed on the property, as well as multi-use court that can be used for either volleyball or basketball. Additionally, there will be playground equipment as well. (The public) will have access to the courts, James said. Its a good partnership James said his longterm wish is to see an aquatic center constructed at the new facility. I still believe, not in my time though, well see an aquatic center there, he said. Thats way down the road. Its hard for me to believe that we have a city on two rivers, and we dont have an aquatic center for kids to learn to swim. I think its an ideal place. Currently, James said, club officials are being told it could take up to six months to complete the new facility. He said they are optimistic that timeframe will be met, but it all depends on if there are any change orders during the project. Were still a point were we have people who will be able to give it their undivided attention, he explained. I think itll be up in a short time. I dont expect the children to be in their current facility when summer rolls around again. James said the club will host fundraisers so it can buy necessary computer equipment and furniture for the new facility. He noted several people in the community have already stepped up with donations. The community has really come aboard, he said. The property in question is owned by the Marion County School District, but a deal was stuck to lease the property to the Boys & Girls Club of Marion County, Dunnellon branch, for $1 per year for the next 50 years. The new facility will replace the clubs current building, which consists of a modular unit across from Ernie Mills Park on Bostick Street. Despite the unforeseen delays, James said officials are still within guidelines of the grant process and would not lose the funds the organization was awarded.
