City Council rewards Algiere with new 3-year deal Brought aboard three years ago to instill continuity inside the city ranks, the Dunnellon City Council rewarded Lisa Algiere on Monday with a new three-year contract. Algiere began her career as city manager in June 2012, but has received high remarks and praise from those on the Council. Her newest contract, good until 2015, shows an increase in car allowance from $300 per month to $400 per month. In the three years Algiere has been in the citys employ, her salary has climbed from $65,000 to $72,100, including benefits. As part of her new contract, if Algiere is fired by the Council without cause, she would receive a five-month severance package including health benefits for her and her dependents. Currently, Algiere has not opted into the citys health insurance plan; however, Mayor Fred Ward pointed out if she wants to, this would provide added incentive. According to the new conLisa AlgiereCity Manager Photos by DREW RONDEAU/For the Riverland NewsMayor Fred Ward, who is seeking his third term on on the Dunnellon City Council, reacts to a series of questions asked by the Riverland News and a few by students in the Dunnellon High School journalism classes. Ward faces challenger Nathan Whitt in the Nov. 6 General Election. Chamber tunes up for event Jazz Up set for Oct. 20Organizers for Jazz Up Dunnellon cleared their last hurdle as final preparations are being completed in time for the annual festival, slated to kick off at 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, along East and West Pennsylvania Avenue. The Dunnellon City Council approved waiving the citys open container ordinance sought by officials from the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce. Just as in years past, safety is the No. 1 concern of the City Council, Mayor Fred Ward told Chamber officials present at the Oct. 3 workshop. City officials told event organizers it is imperative to have signs posted before motorists enter the city notifying them of the lower speed limits because of the increased pedestrian traffic along East Pennsylvania Avenue. Valerie Levy and Viola Soffe, event cocoordinators, told the Council those plans are in the works to place signage up throughout the area. Once again, West Pennsylvania will be closed to through traffic, requiring motorists to come down Powell Avenue to reach U.S. 41. Chamber officials said they have numerous volunteers for this years event. Those volunteers will be wearing neon green shirts with security written on them, Levy told the Council. Well have crossing guards, too. Vice Mayor Dennis Evans told Chamber officials the city is all for this. We want this to be successful just as much as you do, he said. We just want to make sure safety precautions are taken. We dont want any accidents or problems. Alcohol sales kick off Mayor Ward, seeking re-election, discusses citys future The Riverland News recently sat down with Mayor Fred Ward, who is seeking reelection to the Dunnellon City Council in the Nov. 6 General Election. Dunnellon High School journalism teacher Julie Mancini and her journalism students also participated in the session. The Riverland News, in a separate setting, sat down with Mayor Wards opponent, Nathan Whitt, for the same question-and-answer session. Whitts responses will appear in next weeks edition of the Riverland News. The winner of the General Election will serve as mayor of the city of Dunnellon until 2016.Riverland News: Much has been said by council concerning eco-tourism. Will you actively work to entice a resort/hotel into the area, and do you support locating a resort along the Rainbow River on the Rainbow River Ranches property or the Greenburg property? Mayor Ward: Eco-tourism is very important to our local economy. Dunnellon has over 200,000 visitors coming to our city every year. Unfortunately, the city does not have enough places for them to stay. I have been working with the city staff to attract a hotel developer to invest in Dunnellon. If a hotel development wanted to go on the river, I would make sure that the development meets all of the citys standards and is environmentally respectful of the river. Riverland News: What steps would you take to improve the working relationship with the Dunnellon Chamber of Commerce and Ocala/Marion County Chamber of Commerce? How can Dunnellon fit into Marion Countys push to revitalize springs-based tourism? Mayor Ward: The city is a member of both Chambers of Commerce. Maybe the Dunnellon Chamber could approach the Ocala Chamber with the proposal to put their president on the Ocala board and the Ocala board president on the Dunnellon board. I would be more than happy to be their emissary if the Dunnellon Chamber board was to decide. Riverland News: What vision for the use of CRA (Community Redevelopment Area) funds do you have? How might you prioritize expendituresNATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH Karen Cochran has battled cancer three times in her life; the most two recent bouts were with breast cancer. While the treatments left her pysically weak, her faith in God was never shaken.Special to the Riverland News Unwavering faith At the age of 17, Karen Cochran was diagnosed with Hodgkins Disease, a disease of the lymphatic system in which the cells grow abnormally. This weakens ones ability to fight infection. Leaving her body weak, but her faith not shaken, she was ready to fight. In 2008, she was diagnosed with breast cancer; the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes, from there it could have gone anywhere. Cochran remembers the nurse calling her as she was getting out of work. The nurse explained that she would like to see her because she didnt want to tell her over the phone. Cochran was completely taken by surprise by what she heard the nurse tell her next, but in a way, she had been ready.

from this funding source? Mayor Ward: The purpose of the CRA is to revitalize the district and improve the business environment. I supported the Bicycle/Pedestrian Master Plan which calls for streetscaping of Pennsylvania Avenue and Highway 41. I supported the creation of a streetscaping committee and voted to hire an engineer to design the project. My priority for the CRA is to implement the streetscaping project so that our local businesses will have an attractive environment to attract customers and visitors and residents will have a safe place to walk an bicycle. Riverland News: Fresh or saltwater fishing? Mayor Ward: Fresh, of course! Riverland News: Do you feel the Dunnellon area would benefit from a medical facility? If so, how might the citys fiberoptic investment be used to fulfill such a need? Mayor Ward: A medical clinic is needed in Dunnellon due to a large percentage of senior citizens that need accessible health care. New laws now require all medical facilities and doctors offices to electronically store data. Files are now transferred over the Internet. Due to the large size of these files it is critical to have fast, reliable internet. The only reliable internet that can offer fast speeds is through fiber optics systems commonly only available in urban communities. The citys fiber optic system might be considered a rural phenomenon that can attract medical facilities as well as any other business or high tech industry that is dependent on high-speed broadband Internet capability. Riverland News: The contract with American Traffic Systems set is to expire in the fall of 2013. Do you intend to renew the contract or let it expire, thereby eliminating red-light cameras in Dunnellon? Mayor Ward: Although this program is unpopular, it has improved public safety by slowing traffic speeds and reducing the number of red light runners. In fact, our police department has solved over 10 crimes by using the cameras. When the contract is up for renewal, I will consult with the police chief to determine if the cameras are still necessary. Riverland News: How do you feel the Port Citrus project might impact the city of Dunnellon and surrounding area? How should city officials be involved in the project? Mayor Ward: The Port Citrus project has regional impacts and Dunnellon is geographically situated to benefit from this project. When completed this project has the potential to bring jobs to our community. I have been communicating with officials in Citrus County and will continue working with them to keep Dunnellon in their sights. The fact that Dunnellon could bring reliable high speed broadband internet to Port Citrus has definitely been a plus to their project planning. Riverland News: Gator or Seminoles? No other options. Mayor Ward: Both, except when they play each other. Riverland News: At a time when there is critical need for infrastructure renewal for businesses and residents that already exist in the city, how important is it to build additional infrastructure to business and residents east of the city that, as of yet, do not exist? Mayor Ward: I have endeavored to make the city more proactive with regard to infrastructure and city assets management. Pursuant to that end, the city engineer recently completed a utility master plan that identified much needed improvements as well as the need for additional infrastructure. In the city budget this year we are addressing the critical needs on Highway 41 and Blue Cove. Infrastructure is vital to a community and it is equally important to maintain what we have and expand for future growth. If we do not prepare for growth we will never be able to recruit industry to invest in our community investments that will create jobs. tract, the Council agrees to increase Algieres base salary and/or benefits in such amounts and to such extent as the Council may determine that it is desirable to do so the basis of an annual salary review of Algiere and made at the same time as similar consideration is given other employees generally. This year, after her annual evaluation, the Council considered giving Algiere a raise, but she declined, choosing to only accept the Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) all other city employees were awarded. Id like to push for a merit raise, but I know how Ms. Algiere feels about it, Mayor Ward said. But shes been a valuable asset to the community. Vice Mayor Dennis Evans echoed those sentiments. Youve done an outstanding job, he explained. You have my full support, and I think I can speak for the entire Council, but you have their full support. In three years since taking over the top management spot with the city, Algiere has helped facilitate the launch of Greenlight Dunnellon Communications, a fiber-to-the home program in which the city secured $7-million-plus in bonds from Regions Bank in Orlando. In the past year, the city has also purchased the water systems in Rio Vista, Juliette Falls and Rainbow Springs. The city borrowed more than $6 million for the acquisitions of both systems. Currently, the city is in the beginning stages of working on the East Pennsylvania Streetscaping project to coincide with the extension of the Withlacoochee Rails to Trails in which construction of the project is slated to begin by the end of the month. The city is also currently in talks with state officials to acquire 170 acres of land for a new recreation park. Im glad the process is over, she said of contract talks. Im honored the Council wants to continue retaining my services. I was never in doubt, but Im glad its over with and we can focus on the future. Weve got a lot of projects were just now beginning to work on that Id really like to see through. I believe these projects will really make Dunnellon a better place for both our residents and our businesses. The future is very exciting. In other action, the Council: Authorized the mayor to sign an agreement with Kimley-Horn & Associates for U.S. 41 and East McKinney water main replacements. The deal calls for Kimley-Horn & Associates to package three projects together, which includes replacing the antiquated water main running along U.S. 41. If we can put all three small projects together and make one big project, we believe we can get attract better bids for it, Algiere told the Council. Authorized the mayor to sign an agreement for professional services between the city of Dunnellon and the Withlacoochee Regional Planning Council (WRPC).

River views City should pay bills, then give raisesMy opinion of the job the city manager has done is different than the people who run Dunnellon. I read the news every week and have lived here since I retired more than 20 years ago. I know that buying the water company and the way the meetings were held made a lot of us angry, so we picketed the city. Almost all of us are boycotting Greenlight, the fiber company the city owns, and I think that will continue. We do not need it. I think a lot of it was the managers idea. Greenlight is going to lose a lot of money that the city probably does not have. The letter the city sent out about wells and inspections was not right either. It was not very good and hard to understand. I went to the water meeting and the manager and her friend did not explain things very well. I do not like cameras taking pictures at the red lights. I also do not like the pamphlet that is with my water bill. They can send me a bill on a post card, I liked that. I bet the manager makes $60,000-plus vacation time and that is fair if you get a good job done. Maybe if the city paid all its bills and did not raise water rates, it could say good job and give a raise. This is what I think.Andy Wright Rainbow SpringsHow does Council justify managers new contract?How can the city of Dunnellon consider renewing the city managers contract for another three years when she has gotten them in debt to the tune of $20-plus million during her first three years? Does this mean that if she is here for another three years that the city will then be $40-plus million in debt? I do not understand how the current City Council can heap so much praise on her, let alone even think of renewing her contract when she has caused the city so much debt and alienated so many non-residents.Joan K. Duggins Rainbow Springs Kudos to Greenlight, its service and employeesWe got Greenlight Dunnellon Communications services and, in the beginning I was happy to go fiber-optic, in a few days I was irate Happy Anniversary to me, as this marks the one-year anniversary that Ive been writing this column. You have read 52 stories about my life and my family. Thanks to everyone for comments, emails, letters and phone calls that Ive received. Im happy to report that 99 percent have been positive. Ive actually received pleasant phone calls from the former postmaster of Dunnellon, from my old high school math teacher, from a couple I used to babysit for when I was 13, several of my old classmates and from President Obama. OK, I made that last one up, but pretty impressive list even without him. To mark this anniversary, Ive decided to do a fun little column about things that Ive observed in this past year. So here goes and hope you enjoy. One thing I know for sure is that Its better to go through life happy than sad, positive than negative. It feels better, its less exhausting and all the experts say it causes fewer wrinkles. Laughter is definitely the best medicine and most people find it quite contagious. A big, loud, belly laugh is the greatest form of flattery when youre the one telling the joke or writing the story. Nothing smells better than a pot of gravy and meatballs simmering on the stove. Shawshank Redemption is one of the best movies ever made. If you think its not a love story, then you need to watch it again, which brings me to: nobody has a voice as comforting and soothing as Morgan Freeman. Siblings can become your best friends, when you get past the age where Im telling Mom doesnt matter anymore. The kindest words your husband can say to you are Lets go out and eat. When you ask if this outfit makes you look fat you never want to hear the answer yes. Having teenage daughters is like a very long episode of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but eventually they come back better than ever. Then they get paid back when they have daughters. When the recovering addict says hes been clean for two weeks, those 14 days mean an awful lot to somebody. If they could make a skinless chicken breast taste like a big, juicy burger, we could all be thin. When you find a friend you can truly trust, they become a rare treasure. Yes, its cool to pretend you are cool, but in the long run people will like you better if you just act yourself. Why cant we realize this before we turn 40?

I would like to set the record straight on these false statements with statements of truth as itemized below. Falsehood In 2007, an environmental group pushed through Comprehensive Plan changes for the City of Dunnellon which reduced zoning density of Rainbow River Ranch property. Truth Only the City Council can change the Comp Plan and Ward has been mayor and council chairman since 2007. The RRR property has never been platted or rezoned. Falsehood This prompted the property owner to file a Bert Harris lawsuit against the city to protect their vested property rights. Truth The property owner filed the suit to gain entitlements to substantial development rights which were never vested. Falsehood This environmental group opposed any settlement between the city and the property owner. Truth RRC spent hundreds of hours in 2007 and 2008 to get the property listed on the Florida Forever Program in order to buy the RRR property as conservation lands to protect the river and its environment. The owner refused all reasonable offers and has never stated his asking price. Falsehood In 2009, the city was able to hire an academically trained, experienced professional city manager, Lisa Algiere. Truth Algiere was not an experienced city manager. Dunnellon is the first time she has been a city manager or supervised such a large number of employees and departments. Falsehood 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. Truth Ms. Algiere simply capitulated to the property owner, agreed to far more than he expected, promised the developer millions in infrastructure waivers, waivers on public hearings, and removal of important wildlife habitat along Rainbow River. Falsehood If the city went to a Bert Harris trial and lost, the damages could be $6 to $8 million. Truth There is no reason to beMayor Ward makes false accusations Things I know for sure Oftentimes, throughout the years, weve heard the phrases pick your battles well and, more importantly, it is best to know when to throw the towel in. Now is the time for Rainbow River Conservation Inc. and the other individual interveners in the long, drawn-out legal fiasco regarding Rainbow River Ranch to wave the white flag and move on. Frankly, that they want a long court battle about the proposed development is bizarre and mind boggling. RRC President Burt Eno said residents dont understand the long-term costs associated with the proposed development. That might be true; however, they can certainly see the short-term costs of more than $600,000 in legal fees, no matter who is to blame. Those fees arent the lone effect the legal battle has had on the residents and business owners in the community. Theres been the loss of potential construction jobs, new development and new jobs from potential businesses willing to open their doors, the impact of new residents on current businesses. Instead of generating additional property taxes on highend homes, city officials have sought out new ways to generate income red-light cameras, Greenlight Dunnellon Communications and the purchases of three utility systems in the past year. All of these decisions have had negative ramifications, which have left a bad, bitter taste in the mouths of many property owners, business owners and, especially, Rainbow Springs residents. Dragging this case through the murky waters of the legal system will just create more harm than good, both in terms of relations with city officials and city residents. The more legal fees, the more the city will do to generate revenue. Remember those speed trailers from two years ago officials were so fond of, but scrapped the idea because the state legislature was unfamiliar with them. Frankly folks, its not the time to give our state lawmakers any crazy ideas either. They deserve a lions share of the blame for the red-light camera fiasco statewide. Its time to let it go, its time to move on, press forward with other missions the RRC has long stood for and championed so well in the past. Continuing to drag this on not only drains taxpayers wallets, but tarnishes the RRCs legacy it established many years ago, long before the issue of Rainbow River Ranch was ever conceived.

Riverland News, Thursday, October 11, 2012 5 GUEST COLUMN Iread the guest column in the Oct. 4 issue of the Riverland Newsfrom Mayor Ward. In a nut shell, this is what I got from Mr. Wards guest column. That back in 2007, there was a small band of environmental looneys in Dunnellon who pushed through changes in the citys comprehensive plan that resulted in a Bert Harris Suit against the city of Dunnellon. Further, that this suit has cost the city more than $600,000 in legal fees and threatened the city with million of dollars in damages which could possibly cost individual tax payers thousands of dollars. Fortunately, according to Mr. Ward, the current government has agreed to a settlement agreement with the developer of the Rainbow River Ranch, the plaintiff, and if Mr. Ward is successful will lead to an end of this legal nightmare. Well let me begin by saying, it just aint true. Even though the political season is upon us, and I have avoided writing to the paper for several years now, I feel compelled to respond to Mr. Wards imaginary tale and to give readers who may not know the real history some facts. Therefore, to the best of my ability and in an effort to condense this period for easy reading, here are some actual facts with a timeline that can be verified. In 2007, the city of Dunnellon was told by the state that their comprehensive plan was not compliant and needed to be updated to remain in good-standing with the state. Comprehensive plans require public hearings, public workshops at both the planning and council levels, and a lot of advertising. Once the planning commission has concluded their work, they then pass recommendations on to the City Council for further hearings and approval or denial. The final proposed amendments to the citys comprehensive plan are transmitted to Tallahassee upon vote by the City Council. The state reviews the proposed amendments and returns the proposed amendments back to the city along with objections, recommendations and corrections. This is commonly called the ORC report. The Council discusses the changes required by the state, it amends its transmittal document in public hearings, it then sends the corrected proposed amendments back to Tallahassee and waits for its approval. If Tallahassee finds the objections are satisfied it is then accepted by the state and blessed as law. It then becomes an integral part of the citys Comprehensive Plan. Under the advisement of the citys attorney, Skip Fowler of Fowler and OQuinn P.A., the city council approved a sixmonth moratorium to go through the above process. The City Council also asked for assistance from the state to help Mr. Horne, community development director, to assist him in what was going to be a vigorous task. To this end, the state contracted with the firm of V. Gail Easley to assist Dunnellon. Aha, now we must surely be getting to the looney environmentalists! Enter: Gail Easley: V. Gail Easley, FAICP, is an adjunct lecturer in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Florida, while also running The Gail Easley Company. Ms. Easley has worked with many groups, as a director of planning, in both the public and private sectors. She is active in the American Planning Association, having served on the Elections Committee, the Fellows Committee of AICP and the National Ethics Committee, among other positions. Ms. Easley is a former president of the Florida Chapter of the American Planning Association and has a long history of teaching planning courses, as well as having published articles in multiple planning publications, including Zoning Practice and the Florida Planning Commissioner Handbook In November 2007, the first proposed elements to the citys comprehensive plan were presented to the City Council. The first reading of the comprehensive plan proposed amendments was Nov. 13, 2007. However, the actual and final reading of Ordinance 2007-25, amending the comprehensive plan, was Oct. 13, 2008. The two mayors to have signed this ordinance are Mayor Dan Rutkowski, dated Nov. 13, 2007, and Fred R Ward, dated Oct. 13, 2008. That means, Mr. Ward, you voted for the changes in the comprehensive plan and you knew, or should have known, each and every issue therein. To now disavow your legislative role in the comprehensive plan process and then accuse individuals who had no vote in the matter of causing irreparable harm to the city is both shameful and dishonest. That would also be true of Councilwoman Lynne McAndrew, who was a voting member of the planning commission during this time frame and, as the planning minutes reflect, one who heaped endless praises on the work of Gail Easley. Lets fast forward now to the role of the Rainbow River Conservation Inc. (RRC). The mission of this group has a long-standing of protecting the Rainbow River. In the tradition of Karen Thurman, Nancy Argenziano, Jack Dennis and now under the leadership of Dr. Burt Eno, the effort to protect the Rainbow River continues. In their effort as stewards of the Rainbow River, the RRC has asked the court and the court has granted them, an opportunity to speak as interested parties; affected parties regarding development on the Rainbow River. I am proud to be a member of this group and proud to be an American where people are allowed to plead their case in court, and I marvel that the RRC at their own expense sought attorneys counsel, paid for appropriate filings, were never subsidized by the state as alleged by Mr. Ward, and did so for under $25,000. If the citys claims are correct, and for the same case, has spent more than $600,000, well then its time for a new attorney at City Hall! Let me conclude with my objections of the Settlement Agreement between the developer of the Rainbow River Ranch and the city of Dunnellon First, it is a breach of a prior contract between the Cubbage Family Estate, the state of Florida, the city of Dunnellon, and the body politic, the pubFormer councilwoman stands firmly behind conservation group lieve that the city would have lost or that there would have been any damages. Falsehood The environmental group convinced the state Department of Economic Opportunity, the former Department of Community Affairs, to join them in intervention in the lawsuit. Truth The DCA was completely abolished by Gov. Scott. The DEO is a new department with a completely different mission. The DCA saw the egregious terms of the proposed settlement agreement, determined it violated state law in the opinion of the former DCA Secretary and voluntarily intervened on the side of RRC. Falsehood The intervention required the judge to send the city, property owner, state DEO, and environmental group back to negotiate a new settlement. Truth The judge did not order mediation or settlement talks. Falsehood This group has caused the city to incur $602,000 in legal expenses to date. Truth These costs were incurred in a case brought by the developer. To date, RRC has not initiated any of the litigation involving development of this property. RRC, along with the former state DCA, merely intervened in the ongoing case. The City and developer control the litigation, not the interveners. Falsehood My assertion that this agreement was done behind closed doors without the presence of the RRC is intellectually dishonest. Truth The DEO communicated with the developer and had already reached an agreement before the DEO invited RRC to meet with them to express any further conditions. RRC attended the meeting with the DEO, the developer to seek a meaningful conservation easement that would provide protection for the river and its environment. We spent over two hours explaining why the Rainbow Springs corridor was important, only to be rebuffed by the developer. Falsehood This environmental group has not negotiated in good faith and continues its intransigent demand that the city go to trial. Truth RRC has made numerous efforts to find a solution to the dispute without destroying a unique resource. We cannot in good conscience sign or support a settlement agreement that is fundamentally wrong and vests unbridled discretion in the City Manager Lisa Algiere. Falsehood 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. Truth We offered as a solution, a conservation easement along the shoreline that would protect the Rainbow River and its wildlife. We have not sacrificed thousands of hours of our time in many projects to protect and preserve this unique resource just to obstruct. Mayor Wards insulting and demeaning remarks only serve to display his lack of knowledge of the importance of our environment and its relation to the survival of Dunnellon. The direction being taken by the city and the DEO only serve the financial benefit of the RRR developer, and is not in the best interest of the environment, the economy and citizens who value our environment-driven economy, who will be burdened by the ineptitude of the Dunnellon government in failing to protect the Rainbow River from overdevelopment.Burt Eno is president of Rainbow River Conservation Inc. and wondering why I switched servers. In other words, I was one unhappy customer. Now Im one happy customer. We receive great programs and services for really decent fees and less loss of programs in storms. The Greenlight employees tolerated me and we now have a good relationship, they do make immediate responses to any problems that have come up and since they are new, problems did pop up. Some they were not aware of until we called in. They searched to find out what the problem is and find it they did. The best part is, they can correct the problems right from its Greenlight office. No waiting for a repair man to come to our home, then they phone us to be sure the problem is fixed and that we are satisfied with their service. Sometimes a reversal is due, thus I stand corrected and apologize to their good, helpful and tolerant employees. The service is more programming for less and less reception problems, the other two satellites companies compared to Greenlight is actually well they cant compare. If they could of, wed still be with them. I understand the unhappiness about the water and sewage, and yes it is too high a price and to force it on the residents is dead wrong and on non-residents. The city like another should drop required permits and stop denying any company from building their business and employment of local residents. We turn down Publix and Lowes. If true, wow more jobs gone down the road. More jobs locally means more revenue for the city and, when employed, our Dunnellon citizens have an income to live on and to purchase goods from our hometown businesses. This comes from a couple of managers with these businesses, not one unhappy employee, so I tend to believe what was said to me. Someone suggested more trails going through town for the bicyclists so they would be able to stop and shop and eat at our restaurants. Do you really you think so? Those bikers do not stop to shop and have no place to put bought goods on their bikes and certainly in those skintight Spandex outfits, no room for a dime. Eat and drink? They save that for later and really most do not carry water.Mary Hacker DunnellonNation needs to pray for healing, forgivenessIt is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible. George WashingtonPeople in the United States have always held a belief based upon the crucial role of the Christian faith in building our great nation. Americas founding fathers would be appalled at the assault on our nations Christian heritage by our government, our courts and our educational institutions. We have come a long way from admitting that we need God to have this nation work. In fact, these days more and more people seem to completely ignore God and His commandments. Our nation suffers with complex problems of crime and violence, sexual immorality, abortion, drug abuse, family deterioration, child abuse, hatred, homelessness, pursuit of money and riches instead of honesty and integrity. Add millions of men and women out of work and the rising costs of living. And we have even greater chaos. Wake up, people, before it is too late. We, the people of the United States of America, need to acknowledge the one true God. We need to pray for Gods forgiveness of our nations sins. We need to be grateful for Gods many blessings. We need to humbly ask for Gods continued protection and favor. Lord, please heal our nation.Carol Nordberg DunnellonRemember in November its for the good of the countryWell, now lets face it, after seeing the debates Wednesday, Oct. 3, you have to make a very important decision. If you owned a business and for four years you have to borrow money to keep it afloat and your still loosing money what do you do? You either get a new manager or keep borrowing money even though youre not making a profit to pay your bills. I think its time to clean house and get a manager that has the background for making money and keeping the business running and can hire more people to get things back on a stable foundation. We have to start thinking of the future and how we are going to pay off these foreign investors if and when they call in their notes. Knowing we dont have the money to pay them what should we do? We cant just keep printing paper money if we dont have something to back it up with because this will cause a complete collapse of a business or country. There is an election coming up and you will have the chance to change the man running the business or the country to someone who knows how to make money in the private sector and has no problem keeping his business afloat. Do the right thing and lets get our country back on its feet before its too late. Just remember in November its for the good of the country .T.M. Christensen DunnellonFood-4-Kids Inc. thanks Bob Evans for supportFood-4-Kids Inc. would like to thank the Bob Evans Family of patrons and employees for its continued support during our fundraiser, Operation Backpack, Sept. 13. For the school year 2012-13, we are already providing backpacks of food each weekend to 167 children, and this number is growing by approximately 50 children each week. This is only possible through the generosity of many friends like you.Sincerely,Tom Tarkenton, president Board Members Food-4-Kids Inc. cross them again, and I guarantee you will. Bad things will happen to good people and make you question why. Good things will happen to bad people, but eventually karma will come around and kick their tails. When you find a man who thinks you look like Jennifer Lopez, cooks like Paula Dean and is funnier than Joan Rivers, dont let him go. Grandchildren change your whole perspective on life. Nothing seems as important ever again. Your priorities change, you become more grounded and you smile more. Two things make Dunnellon a wonderful place to live the people and the Rainbow River. Lets learn to respect and appreciate them both. Now what are some things that youve learned from me this year? I hope these are some of them: that nothing is more important than family; grandchildren are the best things in life; life goes by too quickly; Tim Tebow is a true champion; cherish your parents; love the life youve been given; and always find time to laugh. Opposites attract and dont ever ask me to drive you anywhere. Writing this column has meant so much to me this year. Thanks for letting me come into your homes once a week to entertain, enrage or make you laugh. I promise I will keep my political views to myself. Now if youll excuse me, I have to come up with an idea for column No. 53.

The Agreement attaches a development plat that conflicts with the 2001 Cubbage Agreement. The Agreement allows septic tanks on the Rainbow River in the Conservation Land Group portion of development. The plaintiff in the case agrees to suspend the Bert Harris Suit but does not agree to dismiss the Bert Harris Suit against the city. The legal term used is tolled and the developer or heir is allowed to reinstate the Bert Harris Suit at will anytime in the future. Hence, the city and all future governments are bound by the threat of an impending Bert Harris Suit. The city agrees that if the Bert Harris Suit is reinstated by developer, heirs, or successors, the city waives its right to defend itself. This agreement is said to supersede all law outside of the agreement including the Constitution of the United States, Constitution of the State of Florida, the Florida Statutes, the Florida Administrative Code, and all city codes exiting now or in the future. It requires an unknown utility agreement hammered out behind closed doors without public input. It requires a public facility building, presumably police and fire (6,000-8,000 square feet) to be built by the city and to begin within 12 months of the start of construction on any phase of the Project. Budget please? It sets a precedent to evade public input, especially in small communities, by intimidation and fear. The list I have is much lengthier, but brings to question: Has Fred Ward or anyone on the CiCy council read this agreement? How many millions of dollars does the Council feel this agreement will cost future tax payers? Why would anyone want to be on this side of history? The people of Dunnellon are being sold, literally, down the river!Louise Kenny is a former city councilwoman and liaison to the Planning Commission.6 Riverland News, Thursday, October 11, 2012 000CUJ8 GROUP continued from page 5 Early to bed and early to rise hasnt really worked for me My father was not what you would call a literate person. Apart from the Bible, he did not read much of anything else on a regular basis. I can remember as a young person him quoting a great American patriot, Benjamin Franklin. The only quote he knew of this man was, Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. For a long time I thought he was making it up and then one day, I happened to run across a book in the library about Benjamin Franklin and, there it was. Benjamin actually did say that. I had to give my father that one. It seems that every time it got close to what my father termed as my bedtime, he would remind me of this famous quote. It got so I hated when bedtime came. At the time, I had my doubts about the validity of this quote because if my father followed this quote as he encouraged me to do, why was he not healthy, wealthy and wise? At the time, I was in no position to question his wisdom. I was wise enough to know that the best part of wisdom was not to challenge the wisdom of my father. This has attributed to my length of life to date. Incidentally, I have carried this over into my married life. According to my father, if I simply obeyed Franklins advice I would have a life filled with health, wealth and wisdom. The three things absolutely needed in life to make a person happy. Or, so Franklin would lead us to believe. After what seems to be a lifetime of living, and living in as much harmony of these two aspects of life, I must say that there is very little truth to be said concerning good old Franklins saying. No matter how early I go to bed or how early I get up, I do not seem to be any wealthier or healthier. Perhaps, and this is only a guess on my part because I am not as wise as old Benjamin Franklin, you had to do something when you got up that contributed or created your wealth. Just a suggestion from me. That is the way it is with most sayings. They sound good; you sound wise in quoting them; but after every saying is quoted, nothing seems to Rev.

change. They just do not cover the whole spectrum. It is not that I have not given it the good old college try; it just does not work for me. This past week I had an occasion to think about this quote. I have tried keeping the early to bed and early to rise objective in full focus throughout my life. I am not up partying until the wee hours of the morning. At my age, my party time is early afternoon. I have made a concerted effort to get enough rest and just to make sure I have enough rest I indulge in an afternoon nap. I am not sure where this comes in Benjamin Franklins quote. Recently, I had cause to reflect upon the validity of Benjamin Franklins sage advice. My quarterly taxes were due, and you know what good old Uncle Sam thinks about being late on his payments. If confession is good for the soul (another famous quote), I need to confess that while I was writing this check to Uncle Sam I had some rather harsh thoughts about him in the process. There, I said it. During the same week, some other bills were due and none of them would take no for an answer. Again, I must confess, while writing these checks I was sputtering to myself quite a bit. As I looked at my checkbook, I knew that the wealthy component of Benjamin Franklins quote did not come in my direction. I was simply out of wealth. Not only that, but I recently spent about four weeks sick with bronchitis and pneumonia and spent about three weeks in bed. Not only was I early to bed, but I was glued to my bed. How does that fit into Franklins saying? The healthy aspect of that quote has not fallen in my direction either. If you want to know about the wise element, simply query the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Another old phrase says, three strikes and youre out. Well, according to the Franklin saying, I must concede that I am out. I am not wealthy, in many regards Im not healthy and for sure, Im not wise. It is my opinion that there is a lot more to life than wise old sayings from some old man from the past. Benjamin Franklin, for example, no doubt practiced early to bed and early to rise but in the end, he died. That does not sound too healthy to me. Of course, the best place for wisdom is the Bible. I like what the wisest man in the world said, Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths (Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV). I am not too sure about the healthy and the wealthy components, that is up for grabs, but I am convinced the wise part comes from the Lord. After all, the Bible teaches us that God is Omniscient. If God knows everything and I know God, I am in a good position.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P.O. Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

The Dunnellon High School student started racing BMX (bicycle motocross) when he was 5 and continued progressing and displaying his skills until he was 9 when he took time off until he was 14. I had to start when I was 5 because when I was 4, I was going to start racing with my brothers but the day of the race I broke my leg, Cooke explained. Since then, Cooke broke his collar bone in May 2010 and again in October 2011, along with both of his arms on the same day. His races are all over the country. Cooke has competed in Georgia, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Texas as well as all of the western states to name a few. At the age of 7, Cooke won the West Coast Red Line Cup, which made him No. 1 on the west coast, and the Race of Champs, which earned him the top ranking in the nation. Cooke won the Red Line Cup at 16 and 17 and is still No. 1 on the East Coast. He races in the 16-year-old intermediate division, and on Oct. 12 he will head to Raleigh, N.C., to compete in the Red Line Cup for the third year. My favorite part is that its all on me, and that I dont have to depend on anybody else, Cooke said. He was featured in Pull Magazine at the ages of 7 and 16 for his accomplishments. Cooke has won countless trophies and stamps awards worth small quantities of money that can be used at bike shops across the country for parts and riding gear. Each time he races it costs an estimated total of $2,000 for gas, a hotel room, food and the racing fee, usually about $300. Cooke is contemplating going professional if given the opportunity. Maybe (I would) if I could go to college for it, he said. They have a scholarship program in Indianapolis. Cooke poses in his blue and black jacket, an Open Award, meaning he has won an Open race in seven national races.

Special to the Riverland News See DANCE page 15 Jane Ashman Romeo PrincipalPRINCIPALS OFFICE Vote no on amendment restricting school funding Election Day is coming rapidly and already here for those using an absentee ballot. The large number of very confusing constitutional amendments makes it difficult for our parents and community members to make informed decisions. One amendment will have a major impact on funding your public schools. What this amendment does if approved is: open the door to taxpayer financed school vouchers that would drain even more resources from your neighborhood public school; and Provide any religious organization, regardless of their beliefs and practices, access to state funding for their programs or schools, without increasing spending for education by one dime. Please do not put our local schools behind the eight-ball. We believe your public tax dollars should continue to support your public schools. We encourage you to vote no on the eight-ball Constitutional Amendments. Romeo PTO will host its first free Family Movie Night at 6 p.m. Friday, Oct 12.

DHS golfers top Rattlers; finish 4th at MCIAC The Dunnellon High School golf continues plugging along, knocking off Belleview, 177-189, Oct. 4 at Juliette Falls Golf & Country Club Club. The match started off on a rainy note; however, the Tigers were able to overcome the weather and prevail, behind strong drives and impressive putts. Bryce Thalacker earned medalist honors for Dunnellon, carding a 5-over 41. Ryan Molloy and Alex Nonnemacher each fired 42s for the Tigers (5-4). Also adding to Dunnellons total against the Rattlers were Richie Litterine with a 52 and Tanner Bergeron with a 57. Despite the seemingly favorable scores, the rain caused struggle for the players as they tried to prevent their clubs and other equipment from getting soaked. The grips on my club got slippery and it made me not hit as straight, Litterine said. This was a common problem among the golfers. It was difficult trying to keep my grips and glove dry so I wouldnt let go of the club, Molloy said. It was really hard trying to stay calm, focused and relaxed, and not rush (because of) the rain Molloy said. One golfer didnt mind the rain though, and seemed unphased by the slip of his grip. The rain didnt affect me much it was light and didnt last long, Nonnemacher said.

Dunnnellon lost to the Lady Leopards in straight sets during Senior Night festivities.GAIGE EVANS/For the Riverland News Lady Tigers volleyball falls on Senior Night A long volleyball season is coming to an end, and like every year, Dunnellon High Schools season signs off with Senior Night. A night where the team can bid its seniors farewell, accompanied with a gift and a few last words. The event was Thursday, Oct. 4, at the Lady Tigers regular-season home finale. The night started with each senior Nicole Drew, Elizabeth Wright, Morgan Shalna, Zahyrimar Otero and Tia Love receiving a flower prior to the teams match against Hernando High school. All five seniors were introduced by Danielle Prinz as each came into the gymnasium. Teammates gave each of the girls a special gift along with flowers, hugs and a few heavy tears. Then, the DHS seniors along with there parents stood on a star near the left side of the court where Dunnellon coach Terry Weber and assistant coach Dallas Towns shared a few moments with the girls and there families. Im going to miss just playing volleyball. I mean playing on a team, enjoying the excitement of spiking the ball or scoring a point against the other team, Shalna said. Despite the difficulty of the 2012 volleyball season, this year has been a tremendous display of effort and dedication for the Lady Tigers. Immediately after the Senior Night ceremony, varsity volleyball began as Dunnellon took to the court against the Lady Leopards. The crowd had never been so abundant with families and friends before. The pressure was on and the game begun. The first game started with the Lady Tigers on top. A few jaw-dropping saves were returned by team captain Jody Weber and Lexie Forrester along with some great bumps by Kayla McMann. Unfortunately, Dunnellon couldnt reel in the victory it had hoped for, losing all three games against Hernando. The Lady Tigers will play at Forest and at North Marion this week. ALACHUA The Big D, no, not that Big D, rather as the Big D of Dunnellon has been holding on all season, looking for another win. Finally, the Tigers stuck it out Friday for their second win of the season, pummeling Santa Fe, 39-12. We played all around better last Friday than we have previously, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said after his team snapped its fourgame losing streak. Santa Fe has also been struggling a little and we took advantage of that. Dunnellon (2-4 overall, 1-1 District 5A-5) started the game off with a bang. After gaining several first downs, Dunnellon made it into Raiders territory. On second-and-goal, quarterback Jordan Boley ran through the middle for a touchdown. Senior JVonn Swoll converted the two-point play, giving the Tigers an 8-0 lead with 6:28 remaining in the opening quarter. After forcing Santa Fe to punt on its possession, Dunnellon gave the ball right back to the GAIGE EVANS For the Riverland News JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon quaterback Jordon Boley looks for room to run against South Sumter in the Tigers contest against the top-ranked team in Class 4A.

Raiders after fumbling the punt giving Santa Fe the ball at the Tigers 15-yard line. The Raiders didnt waste their chance, when Damian Johnson scored from 6 yards out on a third-and-goal play. Santa Fe failed to convert the two-point attempt, giving the Tigers an 8-6 lead with 2:30 left in the first quarter. Then Dunnellon exploded in the second quarter, scoring a pair of touchdowns. After Swoll picked up 13 yards off a run, Boley connected with Andre Jackson for a 40yard completion. The senior signal-caller capped the drive by rushing up the middle for his second score of the game. The Tigers converted their twopoint attempt, extending their lead to 16-6 with 10:47 remaining in the half. The pass from Jordan to Andre was the best play of the night, Beasley said. Dunnellon forced the Raiders to punt on their next play as the Tigers offense went to work once again. Boley pitched the ball to Swoll, whose 41-yard run, set up a first-andgoal for Dunnellon. Swoll capped the drive with a 1-yard run, adding the two-point conversion for a 24-6 lead with 2:48 remaining in the second quarter. The Tigers picked up where they left off to open the second half. Boley connected with Jackson for a 36-yard touchdown as Boley converted the two-point attempt for a 32-6 lead with 7:39 left in the third quarter. After recovering a Raiders fumble, Boley capped off his fourtouchdown effort against Santa Fe with is final touchdown of the contest, pushing the Tigers lead to 39-6. Santa Fe finally put scored once, though it was too little, too late to overcome the 33point deficit the Raiders found themselves in. The Raiders recovered a fumble near their own end zone, as Bradley English capped the short drive for Santa Fe, cutting the Tigers lead to 39-12. Our defense played a lot of kids, they did well tonight, Beasley said. The things we needed to be fix got fixed. We are going to do what we do, play hard for the rest of the season. I believe we have a winning streak about to begin. Dunnellon is off this week for its bye week. The Tigers return to action at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 19 against Belleview at Ned Love Field. up with my best score of the season. Molloys talent was expertly displayed at this match in multiple cases. He reached a par five in two strokes on hole No. 2, and on hole No. 1, he was four or five feet from a birdie. On the sixth hole, he was in the woods and right behind a tree, forcing him to curve (the ball) around a tree and still probably hit the ball 200 hundred yards, he explained. Two days earlier, on Sept. 2, the Tigers finished fourth at the MCIAC Jim Yancey Sr. Golf Challenge Championships. Thlacker earned all-county honors, finishing with a 68 in the rain-shortened event.

The women of the Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop presented a $1,000 check to the Michelle-OGram Foundation, named in honor of Michelle Standridge, a young Dunnellon wife and mother who succumbed to breast cancer. The Foundations goal is to encourage and assist those with limited funds obtain mammograms. The presentation took place Oct. 3 at Gruffs Restaurant prior to the Foundations meeting, where several members were completing plans for the Fishing for the Fight tournament Oct. 13 at TJs Bait and Tackle in Dunnellon. Speaking about the Foundation named in honor of Standridge, Paulette Hilliard Szydlo mentioned she was her best friend in high school, roomed with her in college and remained close after they both married. Ironically, their children were born just days apart. Szydol has been actively involved in the Michelle-O-Gram Foundation since the onset. Also attending the meeting with their mothers were sixth-graders Matalyn Gibbs and Sydney Hanchar. Showing what a small town Dunnellon truly is, Sydney and Matalyn told Thrift Shop volunteers they were part of Ms. Gilligans fifth-grade class at Dunnellon Elementary School last year and appreciated the Thrift Shops donation of workbooks and extra project supplies. The Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop women vote monthly about where to donate funds from the profit of its Thrift Shop at the corner of West Pennsylvania Avenue and Cedar Street. cancer, something even more unexpected than that had come to mind: Thank you, God had spilled off her lips. One of her two sons, Matthew, had just started going to a local church. She walked into the friendship hall at the First United Methodist Church of Dunnellon and saw a beautiful quilt; as her son walked ahead into the hall for dinner she stopped to look at it. Glancing down at the paper, fastened to it by safety pins, she noticed not only that it was handmade, but that it had her name on it. She said I feel so special. A woman standing nearby heard what Cochran had said and responded: Thats because you are. One day she will never forget she will be forever grateful for: when her sons and other members of the FUMC Youth Group shaved their heads so she wouldnt be alone in her battle against cancer. Cochran didnt want to wear wigs, she only wore scarves; she wore one to match every outfit every day of the week. One day, before going into a grocery store with her son, Aaron, he had encouraged her to take off her scarf covering her hairless head. Finally, her son had convinced her. Cochran walked into the building and within minutes of being inside a man came to her and said: You look sexy bald. Those few words gave her courage to walk around town with her head held high. In 2007, she went into remission, but in 2009 she was diagnosed with breast cancer again. She wasnt overly surprised, but she knew that God had her in his arms. All in all she feels that having cancer has brought her closer to Jesus Christ and given her a perspective she would never had the opportunity to gain if it were not for God knowing she was able to handle it. This year she is celebrating Pinktober, as she calls it, as her four-year mark of being cancer free approaches. Rely on God, he will bring you through it is something she remembered to remind herself when the times got tough.

City Council rewards Algiere with new 3-year deal Brought aboard three years ago to instill continuity inside the city ranks, the Dunnellon City Council rewarded Lisa Algiere on Monday with a new three-year contract. Algiere began her career as city manager in June 2012, but has received high remarks and praise from those on the Council. Her newest contract, good until 2015, shows an increase in car allowance from $300 per month to $400 per month. In the three years Algiere has been in the citys employ, her salary has climbed from $65,000 to $72,100, including benefits. As part of her new contract, if Algiere is fired by the Council without cause, she would receive a five-month severance package including health benefits for her and her dependents. Currently, Algiere has not opted into the citys health insurance plan; however, Mayor Fred Ward pointed out if she wants to, this would provide added incentive. According to the new conLisa Algiere City Manager Photos by DREW RONDEAU/For the Riverland NewsMayor Fred Ward, who is seeking his third term on on the Dunnellon City Council, reacts to a series of questions asked by the Riverland News and a few by students in the Dunnellon High School journalism classes. Ward faces challenger Nathan Whitt in the Nov. 6 General Election. Chamber tunes up for event Jazz Up set for Oct. 20 Organizers for Jazz Up Dunnellon cleared their last hurdle as final preparations are being completed in time for the annual festival, slated to kick off at 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, along East and West Pennsylvania Avenue. The Dunnellon City Council approved waiving the citys open container ordinance sought by officials from the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce. Just as in years past, safety is the No. 1 concern of the City Council, Mayor Fred Ward told Chamber officials present at the Oct. 3 workshop. City officials told event organizers it is imperative to have signs posted before motorists enter the city notifying them of the lower speed limits because of the increased pedestrian traffic along East Pennsylvania Avenue. Valerie Levy and Viola Soffe, event cocoordinators, told the Council those plans are in the works to place signage up throughout the area. Once again, West Pennsylvania will be closed to through traffic, requiring motorists to come down Powell Avenue to reach U.S. 41. Chamber officials said they have numerous volunteers for this years event. Those volunteers will be wearing neon green shirts with security written on them, Levy told the Council. Well have crossing guards, too. Vice Mayor Dennis Evans told Chamber officials the city is all for this. We want this to be successful just as much as you do, he said. We just want to make sure safety precautions are taken. We dont want any accidents or problems. Alcohol sales kick off Mayor Ward, seeking re-election, discusses citys future The Riverland News recently sat down with Mayor Fred Ward, who is seeking reelection to the Dunnellon City Council in the Nov. 6 General Election. Dunnellon High School journalism teacher Julie Mancini and her journalism students also participated in the session. The Riverland News, in a separate setting, sat down with Mayor Wards opponent, Nathan Whitt, for the same question-and-answer session. Whitts responses will appear in next weeks edition of the Riverland News. The winner of the General Election will serve as mayor of the city of Dunnellon until 2016. Riverland News: Much has been said by council concerning eco-tourism. Will you actively work to entice a resort/hotel into the area, and do you support locating a resort along the Rainbow River on the Rainbow River Ranches property or the Greenburg property? Mayor Ward: Eco-tourism is very important to our local economy. Dunnellon has over 200,000 visitors coming to our city every year. Unfortunately, the city does not have enough places for them to stay. I have been working with the city staff to attract a hotel developer to invest in Dunnellon. If a hotel development wanted to go on the river, I would make sure that the development meets all of the citys standards and is environmentally respectful of the river. Riverland News: What steps would you take to improve the working relationship with the Dunnellon Chamber of Commerce and Ocala/Marion County Chamber of Commerce? How can Dunnellon fit into Marion Countys push to revitalize springs-based tourism? Mayor Ward: The city is a member of both Chambers of Commerce. Maybe the Dunnellon Chamber could approach the Ocala Chamber with the proposal to put their president on the Ocala board and the Ocala board president on the Dunnellon board. I would be more than happy to be their emissary if the Dunnellon Chamber board was to decide. Riverland News: What vision for the use of CRA (Community Redevelopment Area) funds do you have? How might you prioritize expendituresNATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH Karen Cochran has battled cancer three times in her life; the most two recent bouts were with breast cancer. While the treatments left her pysically weak, her faith in God was never shaken. Special to the Riverland News Unwavering faith At the age of 17, Karen Cochran was diagnosed with Hodgkins Disease, a disease of the lymphatic system in which the cells grow abnormally. This weakens ones ability to fight infection. Leaving her body weak, but her faith not shaken, she was ready to fight. In 2008, she was diagnosed with breast cancer; the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes, from there it could have gone anywhere. Cochran remembers the nurse calling her as she was getting out of work. The nurse explained that she would like to see her because she didnt want to tell her over the phone. Cochran was completely taken by surprise by what she heard the nurse tell her next, but in a way, she had been ready.

from this funding source? Mayor Ward: The purpose of the CRA is to revitalize the district and improve the business environment. I supported the Bicycle/Pedestrian Master Plan which calls for streetscaping of Pennsylvania Avenue and Highway 41. I supported the creation of a streetscaping committee and voted to hire an engineer to design the project. My priority for the CRA is to implement the streetscaping project so that our local businesses will have an attractive environment to attract customers and visitors and residents will have a safe place to walk an bicycle. Riverland News: Fresh or saltwater fishing? Mayor Ward: Fresh, of course! Riverland News: Do you feel the Dunnellon area would benefit from a medical facility? If so, how might the citys fiberoptic investment be used to fulfill such a need? Mayor Ward: A medical clinic is needed in Dunnellon due to a large percentage of senior citizens that need accessible health care. New laws now require all medical facilities and doctors offices to electronically store data. Files are now transferred over the Internet. Due to the large size of these files it is critical to have fast, reliable internet. The only reliable internet that can offer fast speeds is through fiber optics systems commonly only available in urban communities. The citys fiber optic system might be considered a rural phenomenon that can attract medical facilities as well as any other business or high tech industry that is dependent on high-speed broadband Internet capability. Riverland News: The contract with American Traffic Systems set is to expire in the fall of 2013. Do you intend to renew the contract or let it expire, thereby eliminating red-light cameras in Dunnellon? Mayor Ward: Although this program is unpopular, it has improved public safety by slowing traffic speeds and reducing the number of red light runners. In fact, our police department has solved over 10 crimes by using the cameras. When the contract is up for renewal, I will consult with the police chief to determine if the cameras are still necessary. Riverland News: How do you feel the Port Citrus project might impact the city of Dunnellon and surrounding area? How should city officials be involved in the project? Mayor Ward: The Port Citrus project has regional impacts and Dunnellon is geographically situated to benefit from this project. When completed this project has the potential to bring jobs to our community. I have been communicating with officials in Citrus County and will continue working with them to keep Dunnellon in their sights. The fact that Dunnellon could bring reliable high speed broadband internet to Port Citrus has definitely been a plus to their project planning. Riverland News: Gator or Seminoles? No other options. Mayor Ward: Both, except when they play each other. Riverland News: At a time when there is critical need for infrastructure renewal for businesses and residents that already exist in the city, how important is it to build additional infrastructure to business and residents east of the city that, as of yet, do not exist? Mayor Ward: I have endeavored to make the city more proactive with regard to infrastructure and city assets management. Pursuant to that end, the city engineer recently completed a utility master plan that identified much needed improvements as well as the need for additional infrastructure. In the city budget this year we are addressing the critical needs on Highway 41 and Blue Cove. Infrastructure is vital to a community and it is equally important to maintain what we have and expand for future growth. If we do not prepare for growth we will never be able to recruit industry to invest in our community investments that will create jobs. tract, the Council agrees to increase Algieres base salary and/or benefits in such amounts and to such extent as the Council may determine that it is desirable to do so the basis of an annual salary review of Algiere and made at the same time as similar consideration is given other employees generally. This year, after her annual evaluation, the Council considered giving Algiere a raise, but she declined, choosing to only accept the Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) all other city employees were awarded. Id like to push for a merit raise, but I know how Ms. Algiere feels about it, Mayor Ward said. But shes been a valuable asset to the community. Vice Mayor Dennis Evans echoed those sentiments. Youve done an outstanding job, he explained. You have my full support, and I think I can speak for the entire Council, but you have their full support. In three years since taking over the top management spot with the city, Algiere has helped facilitate the launch of Greenlight Dunnellon Communications, a fiber-to-the home program in which the city secured $7-million-plus in bonds from Regions Bank in Orlando. In the past year, the city has also purchased the water systems in Rio Vista, Juliette Falls and Rainbow Springs. The city borrowed more than $6 million for the acquisitions of both systems. Currently, the city is in the beginning stages of working on the East Pennsylvania Streetscaping project to coincide with the extension of the Withlacoochee Rails to Trails in which construction of the project is slated to begin by the end of the month. The city is also currently in talks with state officials to acquire 170 acres of land for a new recreation park. Im glad the process is over, she said of contract talks. Im honored the Council wants to continue retaining my services. I was never in doubt, but Im glad its over with and we can focus on the fu ture. Weve got a lot of projects were just now beginning to work on that Id really like to see through. I believe these projects will really make Dunnellon a better place for both our residents and our businesses. The future is very exciting. In other action, the Council: Authorized the mayor to sign an agreement with Kimley-Horn & Associates for U.S. 41 and East McKinney water main replacements. The deal calls for Kimley-Horn & Associates to package three projects together, which includes replacing the antiquated water main running along U.S. 41. If we can put all three small projects together and make one big project, we believe we can get attract better bids for it, Algiere told the Council. Authorized the mayor to sign an agreement for professional services between the city of Dunnellon and the Withlacoochee Regional Planning Council (WRPC).

River views City should pay bills, then give raises My opinion of the job the city manager has done is different than the people who run Dunnellon. I read the news every week and have lived here since I retired more than 20 years ago. I know that buying the water company and the way the meetings were held made a lot of us angry, so we picketed the city. Almost all of us are boycotting Greenlight, the fiber company the city owns, and I think that will continue. We do not need it. I think a lot of it was the managers idea. Greenlight is going to lose a lot of money that the city probably does not have. The letter the city sent out about wells and inspections was not right either. It was not very good and hard to understand. I went to the water meeting and the manager and her friend did not explain things very well. I do not like cameras taking pictures at the red lights. I also do not like the pamphlet that is with my water bill. They can send me a bill on a post card, I liked that. I bet the manager makes $60,000-plus vacation time and that is fair if you get a good job done. Maybe if the city paid all its bills and did not raise water rates, it could say good job and give a raise. This is what I think. Andy Wright Rainbow Springs How does Council justify managers new contract?How can the city of Dunnellon consider renewing the city managers contract for another three years when she has gotten them in debt to the tune of $20-plus million during her first three years? Does this mean that if she is here for another three years that the city will then be $40-plus million in debt? I do not understand how the current City Council can heap so much praise on her, let alone even think of renewing her contract when she has caused the city so much debt and alienated so many non-residents.

You have read 52 stories about my life and my family. Thanks to everyone for comments, emails, letters and phone calls that Ive received. Im happy to report that 99 percent have been positive. Ive actually received pleasant phone calls from the former postmaster of Dunnellon, from my old high school math teacher, from a couple I used to babysit for when I was 13, several of my old classmates and from President Obama. OK, I made that last one up, but pretty impressive list even without him. To mark this anniversary, Ive decided to do a fun little column about things that Ive observed in this past year. So here goes and hope you enjoy. One thing I know for sure is that Its better to go through life happy than sad, positive than negative. It feels better, its less exhausting and all the experts say it causes fewer wrinkles. Laughter is definitely the best medicine and most people find it quite contagious. A big, loud, belly laugh is the greatest form of flattery when youre the one telling the joke or writing the story. Nothing smells better than a pot of gravy and meatballs simmering on the stove. Shawshank Redemption is one of the best movies ever made. If you think its not a love story, then you need to watch it again, which brings me to: nobody has a voice as comforting and soothing as Morgan Freeman. Siblings can become your best friends, when you get past the age where Im telling Mom doesnt matter anymore. The kindest words your husband can say to you are Lets go out and eat. When you ask if this outfit makes you look fat you never want to hear the answer yes. Having teenage daughters is like a very long episode of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but eventually they come back better than ever. Then they get paid back when they have daughters. When the recovering addict says hes been clean for two weeks, those 14 days mean an awful lot to somebody. If they could make a skinless chicken breast taste like a big, juicy burger, we could all be thin. When you find a friend you can truly trust, they become a rare treasure. Yes, its cool to pretend you are cool, but in the long run people will like you better if you just act yourself. Why cant we realize this before we turn 40?

I would like to set the record straight on these false statements with statements of truth as itemized below. Falsehood In 2007, an environmental group pushed through Comprehensive Plan changes for the City of Dunnellon which reduced zoning density of Rainbow River Ranch property. Truth Only the City Council can change the Comp Plan and Ward has been mayor and council chairman since 2007. The RRR property has never been platted or rezoned. Falsehood This prompted the property owner to file a Bert Harris lawsuit against the city to protect their vested property rights. Truth The property owner filed the suit to gain entitlements to substantial development rights which were never vested. Falsehood This environmental group opposed any settlement between the city and the property owner. Truth RRC spent hundreds of hours in 2007 and 2008 to get the property listed on the Florida Forever Program in order to buy the RRR property as conservation lands to protect the river and its environment. The owner refused all reasonable offers and has never stated his asking price. Falsehood In 2009, the city was able to hire an academically trained, experienced professional city manager, Lisa Algiere. Truth Algiere was not an experienced city manager. Dunnellon is the first time she has been a city manager or supervised such a large number of employees and departments. Falsehood 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. Truth Ms. Algiere simply capitulated to the property owner, agreed to far more than he expected, promised the developer millions in infrastructure waivers, waivers on public hearings, and removal of important wildlife habitat along Rainbow River. Falsehood If the city went to a Bert Harris trial and lost, the damages could be $6 to $8 million. Truth There is no reason to beMayor Ward makes false accusations Things I know for sure O ftentimes, throughout the years, weve heard the phrases pick your battles well and, more importantly, it is best to know when to throw the towel in. Now is the time for Rainbow River Conservation Inc. and the other individual interveners in the long, drawn-out legal fiasco regarding Rainbow River Ranch to wave the white flag and move on. Frankly, that they want a long court battle about the proposed development is bizarre and mind boggling. RRC President Burt Eno said residents dont understand the long-term costs associated with the proposed development. That might be true; however, they can certainly see the short-term costs of more than $600,000 in legal fees, no matter who is to blame. Those fees arent the lone effect the legal battle has had on the residents and business owners in the community. Theres been the loss of potential construction jobs, new development and new jobs from potential businesses willing to open their doors, the impact of new residents on current businesses. Instead of generating additional property taxes on highend homes, city officials have sought out new ways to generate income red-light cameras, Greenlight Dunnellon Communications and the purchases of three utility systems in the past year. All of these decisions have had negative ramifications, which have left a bad, bitter taste in the mouths of many property owners, business owners and, especially, Rainbow Springs residents. Dragging this case through the murky waters of the legal system will just create more harm than good, both in terms of relations with city officials and city residents. The more legal fees, the more the city will do to generate revenue. Remember those speed trailers from two years ago officials were so fond of, but scrapped the idea because the state legislature was unfamiliar with them. Frankly folks, its not the time to give our state lawmakers any crazy ideas either. They deserve a lions share of the blame for the red-light camera fiasco statewide. Its time to let it go, its time to move on, press forward with other missions the RRC has long stood for and championed so well in the past. Continuing to drag this on not only drains taxpayers wallets, but tarnishes the RRCs legacy it established many years ago, long before the issue of Rainbow River Ranch was ever conceived.

Riverland News, Thursday, October 11, 2012 5 GUEST COLUMN I read the guest column in the Oct. 4 issue of the Riverland News from Mayor Ward. In a nut shell, this is what I got from Mr. Wards guest column. That back in 2007, there was a small band of environmental looneys in Dunnellon who pushed through changes in the citys comprehensive plan that resulted in a Bert Harris Suit against the city of Dunnellon. Further, that this suit has cost the city more than $600,000 in legal fees and threatened the city with million of dollars in damages which could possibly cost individual tax payers thousands of dollars. Fortunately, according to Mr. Ward, the current government has agreed to a settlement agreement with the developer of the Rainbow River Ranch, the plaintiff, and if Mr. Ward is successful will lead to an end of this legal nightmare. Well let me begin by saying, it just aint true. Even though the political season is upon us, and I have avoided writing to the paper for several years now, I feel compelled to respond to Mr. Wards imaginary tale and to give readers who may not know the real history some facts. Therefore, to the best of my ability and in an effort to condense this period for easy reading, here are some actual facts with a timeline that can be verified. In 2007, the city of Dunnellon was told by the state that their comprehensive plan was not compliant and needed to be updated to remain in good-standing with the state. Comprehensive plans require public hearings, public workshops at both the planning and council levels, and a lot of advertising. Once the planning commission has concluded their work, they then pass recommendations on to the City Council for further hearings and approval or denial. The final proposed amendments to the citys comprehensive plan are transmitted to Tallahassee upon vote by the City Council. The state reviews the proposed amendments and returns the proposed amendments back to the city along with objections, recommendations and corrections. This is commonly called the ORC report. The Council discusses the changes required by the state, it amends its transmittal document in public hearings, it then sends the corrected proposed amendments back to Tallahassee and waits for its approval. If Tallahassee finds the objections are satisfied it is then accepted by the state and blessed as law. It then becomes an integral part of the citys Comprehensive Plan. Under the advisement of the citys attorney, Skip Fowler of Fowler and OQuinn P .A., the city council approved a sixmonth moratorium to go through the above process. The City Council also asked for assistance from the state to help Mr. Horne, community development director, to assist him in what was going to be a vigorous task. To this end, the state contracted with the firm of V. Gail Easley to assist Dunnellon. Aha, now we must surely be getting to the looney environmentalists! Enter: Gail Easley: V. Gail Easley, FAICP is an adjunct lecturer in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Florida, while also running The Gail Easley Company. Ms. Easley has worked with many groups, as a director of planning, in both the public and private sectors. She is active in the American Planning Association, having served on the Elections Committee, the Fellows Committee of AICP and the National Ethics Committee, among other positions. Ms. Easley is a former president of the Florida Chapter of the American Planning Association and has a long history of teaching planning courses, as well as having published articles in multiple planning publications, including Zoning Practice and the Florida Planning Commissioner Handbook In November 2007, the first proposed elements to the citys comprehensive plan were presented to the City Council. The first reading of the comprehensive plan proposed amendments was Nov. 13, 2007. However, the actual and final reading of Ordinance 2007-25, amending the comprehensive plan, was Oct. 13, 2008. The two mayors to have signed this ordinance are Mayor Dan Rutkowski, dated Nov. 13, 2007, and Fred R Ward, dated Oct. 13, 2008. That means, Mr. Ward, you voted for the changes in the comprehensive plan and you knew, or should have known, each and every issue therein. To now disavow your legislative role in the comprehensive plan process and then accuse individuals who had no vote in the matter of causing irreparable harm to the city is both shameful and dishonest. That would also be true of Councilwoman Lynne McAndrew, who was a voting member of the planning commission during this time frame and, as the planning minutes reflect, one who heaped endless praises on the work of Gail Easley. Lets fast forward now to the role of the Rainbow River Conservation Inc. (RRC). The mission of this group has a long-standing of protecting the Rainbow River. In the tradition of Karen Thurman, Nancy Argenziano, Jack Dennis and now under the leadership of Dr. Burt Eno, the effort to protect the Rainbow River continues. In their effort as stewards of the Rainbow River, the RRC has asked the court and the court has granted them, an opportunity to speak as interested parties; affected parties regarding development on the Rainbow River. I am proud to be a member of this group and proud to be an American where people are allowed to plead their case in court, and I marvel that the RRC at their own expense sought attorneys counsel, paid for appropriate filings, were never subsidized by the state as alleged by Mr. Ward, and did so for under $25,000. If the citys claims are correct, and for the same case, has spent more than $600,000, well then its time for a new attorney at City Hall! Let me conclude with my objections of the Settlement Agreement between the developer of the Rainbow River Ranch and the city of Dunnellon First, it is a breach of a prior contract between the Cubbage Family Estate, the state of Florida, the city of Dunnellon, and the body politic, the pubFormer councilwoman stands firmly behind conservation group lieve that the city would have lost or that there would have been any damages. Falsehood The environmental group convinced the state Department of Economic Opportunity, the former Department of Community Affairs, to join them in intervention in the lawsuit. Truth The DCA was completely abolished by Gov. Scott. The DEO is a new department with a completely different mission. The DCA saw the egregious terms of the proposed settlement agreement, determined it violated state law in the opinion of the former DCA Secretary and voluntarily intervened on the side of RRC. Falsehood The intervention required the judge to send the city, property owner, state DEO, and environmental group back to negotiate a new settlement. Truth The judge did not order mediation or settlement talks. Falsehood This group has caused the city to incur $602,000 in legal expenses to date. Truth These costs were incurred in a case brought by the developer. To date, RRC has not initiated any of the litigation involving development of this property. RRC, along with the former state DCA, merely intervened in the ongoing case. The City and developer control the litigation, not the interveners. Falsehood My assertion that this agreement was done behind closed doors without the presence of the RRC is intellectually dishonest. Truth The DEO communicated with the developer and had already reached an agreement before the DEO invited RRC to meet with them to express any further conditions. RRC attended the meeting with the DEO, the developer to seek a meaningful conservation easement that would provide protection for the river and its environment. We spent over two hours explaining why the Rainbow Springs corridor was important, only to be rebuffed by the developer. Falsehood This environmental group has not negotiated in good faith and continues its intransigent demand that the city go to trial. Truth RRC has made numerous efforts to find a solution to the dispute without destroying a unique resource. We cannot in good conscience sign or support a settlement agreement that is fundamentally wrong and vests unbridled discretion in the City Manager Lisa Algiere. Falsehood 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. Truth We offered as a solution, a conservation easement along the shoreline that would protect the Rainbow River and its wildlife. We have not sacrificed thousands of hours of our time in many projects to protect and preserve this unique resource just to obstruct. Mayor Wards insulting and demeaning remarks only serve to display his lack of knowledge of the importance of our environment and its relation to the survival of Dunnellon. The direction being taken by the city and the DEO only serve the financial benefit of the RRR developer, and is not in the best interest of the environment, the economy and citizens who value our environment-driven economy, who will be burdened by the ineptitude of the Dunnellon government in failing to protect the Rainbow River from overdevelopment. Burt Eno is president of Rainbow River Conservation Inc. and wondering why I switched servers. In other words, I was one unhappy customer. Now Im one happy customer. We receive great programs and services for really decent fees and less loss of programs in storms. The Greenlight employees tolerated me and we now have a good relationship, they do make immediate responses to any problems that have come up and since they are new, problems did pop up. Some they were not aware of until we called in. They searched to find out what the problem is and find it they did. The best part is, they can correct the problems right from its Greenlight office. No waiting for a repair man to come to our home, then they phone us to be sure the problem is fixed and that we are satisfied with their service. Sometimes a reversal is due, thus I stand corrected and apologize to their good, helpful and tolerant employees. The service is more programming for less and less reception problems, the other two satellites companies compared to Greenlight is actually well they cant compare. If they could of, wed still be with them. I understand the unhappiness about the water and sewage, and yes it is too high a price and to force it on the residents is dead wrong and on non-residents. The city like another should drop required permits and stop denying any company from building their business and employment of local residents. We turn down Publix and Lowes. If true, wow more jobs gone down the road. More jobs locally means more revenue for the city and, when employed, our Dunnellon citizens have an income to live on and to purchase goods from our hometown businesses. This comes from a couple of managers with these businesses, not one unhappy employee, so I tend to believe what was said to me. Someone suggested more trails going through town for the bicyclists so they would be able to stop and shop and eat at our restaurants. Do you really you think so? Those bikers do not stop to shop and have no place to put bought goods on their bikes and certainly in those skintight Spandex outfits, no room for a dime. Eat and drink? They save that for later and really most do not carry water.Mary Hacker Dunnellon Nation needs to pray for healing, forgivenessIt is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible. George WashingtonPeople in the United States have always held a belief based upon the crucial role of the Christian faith in building our great nation. Americas founding fathers would be appalled at the assault on our nations Christian heritage by our government, our courts and our educational institutions. We have come a long way from admitting that we need God to have this nation work. In fact, these days more and more people seem to completely ignore God and His commandments. Our nation suffers with complex problems of crime and violence, sexual immorality, abortion, drug abuse, family deterioration, child abuse, hatred, homelessness, pursuit of money and riches instead of honesty and integrity. Add millions of men and women out of work and the rising costs of living. And we have even greater chaos. Wake up, people, before it is too late. We, the people of the United States of America, need to acknowledge the one true God. We need to pray for Gods forgiveness of our nations sins. We need to be grateful for Gods many blessings. We need to humbly ask for Gods continued protection and favor. Lord, please heal our nation. Carol Nordberg Dunnellon Remember in November its for the good of the countryWell, now lets face it, after seeing the debates Wednesday, Oct. 3, you have to make a very important decision. If you owned a business and for four years you have to borrow money to keep it afloat and your still loosing money what do you do? You either get a new manager or keep borrowing money even though youre not making a profit to pay your bills. I think its time to clean house and get a manager that has the background for making money and keeping the business running and can hire more people to get things back on a stable foundation. We have to start thinking of the future and how we are going to pay off these foreign investors if and when they call in their notes. Knowing we dont have the money to pay them what should we do? We cant just keep printing paper money if we dont have something to back it up with because this will cause a complete collapse of a business or country. There is an election coming up and you will have the chance to change the man running the business or the country to someone who knows how to make money in the private sector and has no problem keeping his business afloat. Do the right thing and lets get our country back on its feet before its too late. Just remember in November its for the good of the country .T.M. Christensen Dunnellon Food-4-Kids Inc. thanks Bob Evans for supportFood-4-Kids Inc. would like to thank the Bob Evans Family of patrons and employees for its continued support during our fundraiser, Operation Backpack, Sept. 13. For the school year 2012-13, we are already providing backpacks of food each weekend to 167 children, and this number is growing by approximately 50 children each week. This is only possible through the generosity of many friends like you. Sincerely,Tom Tarkenton, president Board Members Food-4-Kids Inc. cross them again, and I guarantee you will. Bad things will happen to good people and make you question why. Good things will happen to bad people, but eventually karma will come around and kick their tails. When you find a man who thinks you look like Jennifer Lopez, cooks like Paula Dean and is funnier than Joan Rivers, dont let him go. Grandchildren change your whole perspective on life. Nothing seems as important ever again. Your priorities change, you become more grounded and you smile more. Two things make Dunnellon a wonderful place to live the people and the Rainbow River. Lets learn to respect and appreciate them both. Now what are some things that youve learned from me this year? I hope these are some of them: that nothing is more important than family; grandchildren are the best things in life; life goes by too quickly; Tim Tebow is a true champion; cherish your parents; love the life youve been given; and always find time to laugh. Opposites attract and dont ever ask me to drive you anywhere. Writing this column has meant so much to me this year. Thanks for letting me come into your homes once a week to entertain, enrage or make you laugh. I promise I will keep my political views to myself. Now if youll excuse me, I have to come up with an idea for column No. 53.

The Agreement attaches a development plat that conflicts with the 2001 Cubbage Agreement. The Agreement allows septic tanks on the Rainbow River in the Conservation Land Group portion of development. The plaintiff in the case agrees to suspend the Bert Harris Suit but does not agree to dismiss the Bert Harris Suit against the city. The legal term used is tolled and the developer or heir is allowed to reinstate the Bert Harris Suit at will anytime in the future. Hence, the city and all future governments are bound by the threat of an impending Bert Harris Suit. The city agrees that if the Bert Harris Suit is reinstated by developer, heirs, or successors, the city waives its right to defend itself. This agreement is said to supersede all law outside of the agreement including the Constitution of the United States, Constitution of the State of Florida, the Florida Statutes, the Florida Administrative Code, and all city codes exiting now or in the future. It requires an unknown utility agreement hammered out behind closed doors without public input. It requires a public facility building, presumably police and fire (6,000-8,000 square feet) to be built by the city and to begin within 12 months of the start of construction on any phase of the Project. Budget please? It sets a precedent to evade public input, especially in small communities, by intimidation and fear. The list I have is much lengthier, but brings to question: Has Fred Ward or anyone on the CiCy council read this agreement? How many millions of dollars does the Council feel this agreement will cost future tax payers? Why would anyone want to be on this side of history? The people of Dunnellon are being sold, literally, down the river!Louise Kenny is a former city councilwoman and liaison to the Planning Commission. 6 Riverland News, Thursday, October 11, 2012 000CUJ8 GROUP continued from page 5 Early to bed and early to rise hasnt really worked for me M y father was not what you would call a literate person. Apart from the Bible, he did not read much of anything else on a regular basis. I can remember as a young person him quoting a great American patriot, Benjamin Franklin. The only quote he knew of this man was, Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. For a long time I thought he was making it up and then one day, I happened to run across a book in the library about Benjamin Franklin and, there it was. Benjamin actually did say that. I had to give my father that one. It seems that every time it got close to what my father termed as my bedtime, he would remind me of this famous quote. It got so I hated when bedtime came. At the time, I had my doubts about the validity of this quote because if my father followed this quote as he encouraged me to do, why was he not healthy, wealthy and wise? At the time, I was in no position to question his wisdom. I was wise enough to know that the best part of wisdom was not to challenge the wisdom of my father. This has attributed to my length of life to date. Incidentally, I have carried this over into my married life. According to my father, if I simply obeyed Franklins advice I would have a life filled with health, wealth and wisdom. The three things absolutely needed in life to make a person happy. Or, so Franklin would lead us to believe. After what seems to be a lifetime of living, and living in as much harmony of these two aspects of life, I must say that there is very little truth to be said concerning good old Franklins saying. No matter how early I go to bed or how early I get up, I do not seem to be any wealthier or healthier. Perhaps, and this is only a guess on my part because I am not as wise as old Benjamin Franklin, you had to do something when you got up that contributed or created your wealth. Just a suggestion from me. That is the way it is with most sayings. They sound good; you sound wise in quoting them; but after every saying is quoted, nothing seems to Rev.

change. They just do not cover the whole spectrum. It is not that I have not given it the good old college try; it just does not work for me. This past week I had an occasion to think about this quote. I have tried keeping the early to bed and early to rise objective in full focus throughout my life. I am not up partying until the wee hours of the morning. At my age, my party time is early afternoon. I have made a concerted effort to get enough rest and just to make sure I have enough rest I indulge in an afternoon nap. I am not sure where this comes in Benjamin Franklins quote. Recently, I had cause to reflect upon the validity of Benjamin Franklins sage advice. My quarterly taxes were due, and you know what good old Uncle Sam thinks about being late on his payments. If confession is good for the soul (another famous quote), I need to confess that while I was writing this check to Uncle Sam I had some rather harsh thoughts about him in the process. There, I said it. During the same week, some other bills were due and none of them would take no for an answer. Again, I must confess, while writing these checks I was sputtering to myself quite a bit. As I looked at my checkbook, I knew that the wealthy component of Benjamin Franklins quote did not come in my direction. I was simply out of wealth. Not only that, but I recently spent about four weeks sick with bronchitis and pneumonia and spent about three weeks in bed. Not only was I early to bed, but I was glued to my bed. How does that fit into Franklins saying? The healthy aspect of that quote has not fallen in my direction either. If you want to know about the wise element, simply query the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Another old phrase says, three strikes and youre out. Well, according to the Franklin saying, I must concede that I am out. I am not wealthy, in many regards Im not healthy and for sure, Im not wise. It is my opinion that there is a lot more to life than wise old sayings from some old man from the past. Benjamin Franklin, for example, no doubt practiced early to bed and early to rise but in the end, he died. That does not sound too healthy to me. Of course, the best place for wisdom is the Bible. I like what the wisest man in the world said, Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths (Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV). I am not too sure about the healthy and the wealthy components, that is up for grabs, but I am convinced the wise part comes from the Lord. After all, the Bible teaches us that God is Omniscient. If God knows everything and I know God, I am in a good position. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P .O. Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

The Dunnellon High School student started racing BMX (bicycle motocross) when he was 5 and continued progressing and displaying his skills until he was 9 when he took time off until he was 14. I had to start when I was 5 because when I was 4, I was going to start racing with my brothers but the day of the race I broke my leg, Cooke explained. Since then, Cooke broke his collar bone in May 2010 and again in October 2011, along with both of his arms on the same day. His races are all over the country. Cooke has competed in Georgia, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Texas as well as all of the western states to name a few. At the age of 7, Cooke won the West Coast Red Line Cup, which made him No. 1 on the west coast, and the Race of Champs, which earned him the top ranking in the nation. Cooke won the Red Line Cup at 16 and 17 and is still No. 1 on the East Coast. He races in the 16-year-old intermediate division, and on Oct. 12 he will head to Raleigh, N.C., to compete in the Red Line Cup for the third year. My favorite part is that its all on me, and that I dont have to depend on anybody else, Cooke said. He was featured in Pull Magazine at the ages of 7 and 16 for his accomplishments. Cooke has won countless trophies and stamps awards worth small quantities of money that can be used at bike shops across the country for parts and riding gear. Each time he races it costs an estimated total of $2,000 for gas, a hotel room, food and the racing fee, usually about $300. Cooke is contemplating going professional if given the opportunity. Maybe (I would) if I could go to college for it, he said. They have a scholarship program in Indianapolis. Cooke poses in his blue and black jacket, an Open Award, meaning he has won an Open race in seven national races.

Special to the Riverland News See DANCE page 15 Jane Ashman Romeo Principal PRINCIPALS OFFICE Vote no on amendment restricting school funding E lection Day is coming rapidly and already here for those using an absentee ballot. The large number of very confusing constitutional amendments makes it difficult for our parents and community members to make informed decisions. One amendment will have a major impact on funding your public schools. What this amendment does if approved is: open the door to taxpayer financed school vouchers that would drain even more resources from your neighborhood public school; and Provide any religious organization, regardless of their beliefs and practices, access to state funding for their programs or schools, without increasing spending for education by one dime. Please do not put our local schools behind the eight-ball. We believe your public tax dollars should continue to support your public schools. We encourage you to vote no on the eight-ball Constitutional Amendments. Romeo PTO will host its first free Family Movie Night at 6 p.m. Friday, Oct 12.

DHS golfers top Rattlers; finish 4th at MCIAC The Dunnellon High School golf continues plugging along, knocking off Belleview, 177-189, Oct. 4 at Juliette Falls Golf & Country Club Club. The match started off on a rainy note; however, the Tigers were able to overcome the weather and prevail, behind strong drives and impressive putts. Bryce Thalacker earned medalist honors for Dunnellon, carding a 5-over 41. Ryan Molloy and Alex Nonnemacher each fired 42s for the Tigers (5-4). Also adding to Dunnellons total against the Rattlers were Richie Litterine with a 52 and Tanner Bergeron with a 57. Despite the seemingly favorable scores, the rain caused struggle for the players as they tried to prevent their clubs and other equipment from getting soaked. The grips on my club got slippery and it made me not hit as straight, Litterine said. This was a common problem among the golfers. It was difficult trying to keep my grips and glove dry so I wouldnt let go of the club, Molloy said. It was really hard trying to stay calm, focused and relaxed, and not rush (because of) the rain Molloy said. One golfer didnt mind the rain though, and seemed unphased by the slip of his grip. The rain didnt affect me much it was light and didnt last long, Nonnemacher said.

Dunnnellon lost to the Lady Leopards in straight sets during Senior Night festivities.GAIGE EVANS/For the Riverland News Lady Tigers volleyball falls on Senior Night A long volleyball season is coming to an end, and like every year, Dunnellon High Schools season signs off with Senior Night. A night where the team can bid its seniors farewell, accompanied with a gift and a few last words. The event was Thursday, Oct. 4, at the Lady Tigers regular-season home finale. The night started with each senior Nicole Drew, Elizabeth Wright, Morgan Shalna, Zahyrimar Otero and Tia Love receiving a flower prior to the teams match against Hernando High school. All five seniors were introduced by Danielle Prinz as each came into the gymnasium. Teammates gave each of the girls a special gift along with flowers, hugs and a few heavy tears. Then, the DHS seniors along with there parents stood on a star near the left side of the court where Dunnellon coach Terry Weber and assistant coach Dallas Towns shared a few moments with the girls and there families. Im going to miss just playing volleyball. I mean playing on a team, enjoying the excitement of spiking the ball or scoring a point against the other team, Shalna said. Despite the difficulty of the 2012 volleyball season, this year has been a tremendous display of effort and dedication for the Lady Tigers. Immediately after the Senior Night ceremony, varsity volleyball began as Dunnellon took to the court against the Lady Leopards. The crowd had never been so abundant with families and friends before. The pressure was on and the game begun. The first game started with the Lady Tigers on top. A few jaw-dropping saves were returned by team captain Jody Weber and Lexie Forrester along with some great bumps by Kayla McMann. Unfortunately, Dunnellon couldnt reel in the victory it had hoped for, losing all three games against Hernando. The Lady Tigers will play at Forest and at North Marion this week. ALACHUA The Big D, no, not that Big D, rather as the Big D of Dunnellon has been holding on all season, looking for another win. Finally, the Tigers stuck it out Friday for their second win of the season, pummeling Santa Fe, 39-12. We played all around better last Friday than we have previously, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said after his team snapped its fourgame losing streak. Santa Fe has also been struggling a little and we took advantage of that. Dunnellon (2-4 overall, 1-1 District 5A-5) started the game off with a bang. After gaining several first downs, Dunnellon made it into Raiders territory. On second-and-goal, quarterback Jordan Boley ran through the middle for a touchdown. Senior JVonn Swoll converted the two-point play, giving the Tigers an 8-0 lead with 6:28 remaining in the opening quarter. After forcing Santa Fe to punt on its possession, Dunnellon gave the ball right back to the GAIGE EVANS For the Riverland News JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon quaterback Jordon Boley looks for room to run against South Sumter in the Tigers contest against the top-ranked team in Class 4A.

The tournament was T&F. This is an individual tournament scored for gross and net. All holes were played, but only those beginning with T or F were used toward the final score: hole Nos. 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 12, 13, 14 and 15. First Low Gross: T. Bulson, 49. First Low Net: R.

The Fall opening day of play and luncheon Sept. 20 was well-attended by 31 members. ABCD teams were chosen by computer and we played a tournament known as, Cha Cha Cha or Multi-ball 1, 2, 3. Each player played her own ball. One best net ball was used on par 5s, two best net balls on par 4s, three best net balls on par 3s. This way the D player had a chance to contribute toward the score. At our luncheon, Nancy Meyer, who played in the winning foursome, was congratulated on her 90th birthday with a cake and a lot of good wishes for many more years of health and good golf! Not surprisingly, Nancy was a member of the winning foursome! First Low Net: C. Oman, M.A. Pletcher, T. Jorgensen, N. Meyers, 129; Second Low Net: B. Hubbard, K. Mikulik, G. Young, D. Takahashi, 131; Third Low Net: T. Bulson, E. Lemke, S. Medford, C. Boos, 132. Chip-Ins: M. Sackett, hole No. 2; D. Takahashi, hole No. 11; M. Holsipple, hole No. 10. Birdies: T. Bulson, hole No. 1. AMANDA BARNEY For the Riverland News JV game cancelled, might be rescheduledThe Dunnellon High School junior varsity football teams game Thursday, Oct. 4, against Nature Coast at Ned Love Field was cancelled because of inclement weather. The game had started, but several rain delays as well as strong lightning forced officials to call the game in the first quarter. The game might be rescheduled. If so, it will be announced at a later time. The Tigers play at 7 p.m. today at Trinity Catholic in Ocala. See TIGERS page 11

Raiders after fumbling the punt giving Santa Fe the ball at the Tigers 15-yard line. The Raiders didnt waste their chance, when Damian Johnson scored from 6 yards out on a third-and-goal play. Santa Fe failed to convert the two-point attempt, giving the Tigers an 8-6 lead with 2:30 left in the first quarter. Then Dunnellon exploded in the second quarter, scoring a pair of touchdowns. After Swoll picked up 13 yards off a run, Boley connected with Andre Jackson for a 40yard completion. The senior signal-caller capped the drive by rushing up the middle for his second score of the game. The Tigers converted their twopoint attempt, extending their lead to 16-6 with 10:47 remaining in the half. The pass from Jordan to Andre was the best play of the night, Beasley said. Dunnellon forced the Raiders to punt on their next play as the Tigers offense went to work once again. Boley pitched the ball to Swoll, whose 41-yard run, set up a first-andgoal for Dunnellon.

The women of the Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop presented a $1,000 check to the Michelle-OGram Foundation, named in honor of Michelle Standridge, a young Dunnellon wife and mother who succumbed to breast cancer. The Foundations goal is to encourage and assist those with limited funds obtain mammograms. The presentation took place Oct. 3 at Gruffs Restaurant prior to the Foundations meeting, where several members were completing plans for the Fishing for the Fight tournament Oct. 13 at TJs Bait and Tackle in Dunnellon. Speaking about the Foundation named in honor of Standridge, Paulette Hilliard Szydlo mentioned she was her best friend in high school, roomed with her in college and remained close after they both married. Ironically, their children were born just days apart. Szydol has been actively involved in the Michelle -O-Gram Foundation since the onset. Also attending the meeting with their mothers were sixth-graders Matalyn Gibbs and Sydney Hanchar. Showing what a small town Dunnellon truly is, Sydney and Matalyn told Thrift Shop volunteers they were part of Ms. Gilligans fifth-grade class at Dunnellon Elementary School last year and appreciated the Thrift Shops donation of workbooks and extra project supplies. The Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop women vote monthly about where to donate funds from the profit of its Thrift Shop at the corner of West Pennsylvania Avenue and Cedar Street. cancer, something even more unexpected than that had come to mind: Thank you, God had spilled off her lips. One of her two sons, Matthew, had just started going to a local church. She walked into the friendship hall at the First United Methodist Church of Dunnellon and saw a beautiful quilt; as her son walked ahead into the hall for dinner she stopped to look at it. Glancing down at the paper, fastened to it by safety pins, she noticed not only that it was handmade, but that it had her name on it. She said I feel so special. A woman standing nearby heard what Cochran had said and responded: Thats because you are. One day she will never forget she will be forever grateful for: when her sons and other members of the FUMC Youth Group shaved their heads so she wouldnt be alone in her battle against cancer. Cochran didnt want to wear wigs, she only wore scarves; she wore one to match every outfit every day of the week. One day, before going into a grocery store with her son, Aaron, he had encouraged her to take off her scarf covering her hairless head. Finally, her son had convinced her. Cochran walked into the building and within minutes of being inside a man came to her and said: You look sexy bald. Those few words gave her courage to walk around town with her head held high. In 2007, she went into remission, but in 2009 she was diagnosed with breast cancer again. She wasnt overly surprised, but she knew that God had her in his arms. All in all she feels that having cancer has brought her closer to Jesus Christ and given her a perspective she would never had the opportunity to gain if it were not for God knowing she was able to handle it. This year she is celebrating Pinktober, as she calls it, as her four-year mark of being cancer free approaches. Rely on God, he will bring you through it is something she remembered to remind herself when the times got tough. Cochran also wants to remind all women to please get your mammograms. 16 Riverland News, Thursday, October 11, 2012 0 0 0 C S W 5 34th Anniversary $ 99 00* Renewal Rate plus tax 12 month membership Bring A Friend, They Can Join for Only $99 plus tax *Two can join for $99.00 each plus tax or single can join for $119.50 plus tax.
