Official ceremony slated Thursday Therell be plenty of pomp and circumstance regarding the initial step toward extending the Withlacoochee Rails to Trails into the city of Dunnellon. But when officials state and local stick those ceremonial shovels into the ground this afternoon on the Marion County side of the Withlacoochee River, it will signify many years of hard work, setbacks and delay finally coming to fruition. That official groundbreaking ceremony to build a bridge spanning the Withlacoochee River will be at 1 p.m. today at Rainbow Rivers Club on San Jose Boulevard. The second step in the process will be to gather information from the East Pennsylvania Streetscaping committee and citizens at a special meeting at 6 p.m. Monday at City Hall in which the East Pennsylvania Streetscaping committee will present its ideas to Kimley-Horn. The engineering company presented a tentative plan to the City Council in February. But, because the bicycle trail would impact businesses along East Pennsylvania Avenue first, the Council directed staff to form a committee to see what aspects of the preliminary study would work best to benefit business owners. Wed certainly love for the public to come and share their input on Never go into a strangers house. There are some people in life who arent very nice to kids and you have to be careful. Remind your kids about not getting into strangers cars or talking to strangers, no matter what the person saysto them. Be careful when you cross a street. Make sure to look in both directions and make sure that there are no cars coming. If you have a little brother or sister with you, take their hand and help them get across the street, too. If the street has a stop light, wait until the cross walk light tells you that its okay to cross now, but still check before you cross, look both ways. If your parents give you a curfew, be home when they say. It builds trust between you and them and they are doing it for your own safety. If you are going to be late, call them and let them know. Vandalism is never cool! Someone has to clean it up and it could be you, and you can also be arrested and punished as a juvenile. So, dont think that its fun only if you can get away with it. Its never the right thing to do! Dont eat the candy until you have an adult inspect it; unfortunately, there are some people who thinks its funny to hurt children. Ghosts and goblins. Superheroes. Princesses. Haunted Houses or Haunted Trails. If it is treats youre looking for, or perhaps a few tricks or haunts, Dunnellon has plenty to offer as Halloween approaches. Trail of TreatersThe Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce will host its annual Trail of Treaters from 5 to 7 p.m. Halloween night, Wednesday, Oct. 31.

Myriams bidding adieu to Dunnellon Five-plus years ago when Kenny and Myriam Slagle opened the doors to Myriams Restaurant & Grill, it was for the long haul. Since opening in July 2007, they developed their establishment into a family friendly environment, which has prepared thousands of meals. Life, though, doesnt always go according to plan, Kenny Slagle said. Its not the sour economy, which has gripped the nation for the better part of the past four years and forced many businesses in Dunnellon to close their doors. Simply, Kenny Slagle must commit his time to taking care of his elderly parents, both of whom are advancing in age and each battling respective illnesses. His father has Kenny, center, and Mryiam Slagle, along with daughter Yolanda Lirarazo, will close Myriams Restaurant & Grill on Friday.JEFF BRYAN RIverland News JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon Police Department employee Michelle Arnold pieces together pipes for the top of a new outfield fence for the T-Ball field.

Part of the buzz was the sound of power tools hard at work; the other buzz was about the improvements at the decades-old facility in need of major renovations. Though the renovations began months ago with Dunnellon Little League officials and other volunteers throughout the community, it culminated last week with the assistance of additional volunteers and a grant obtained through Lowes Hero program. The Lowes Heroes program encourages employees in a location to team together, adopt a volunteer project with a local nonprofit organization or K-12 public school and make a difference, a news release stated. The group repaired fences, built bleachers, replaced doors, added flag poles, landscaped areas, enhanced the playground, painted and cleaned throughout the two days.

Human Resources manager for the Lowes store on State Road 200, said during the next two weeks, volunteers will return to finish some of the projects that still need to be completed. Overall, Armstrong said, projects are selected on what will make the most impact on the most number of people. Dunnellon Little League for the past several years has had more than 300 children participate in its Summer League. Armstrong, who participated in both days of the restoration project at the complex, said oftentimes projects are selected because the organization has a lack of money, but it boils down to being able to make a difference in the community. My biggest joy is knowing the kids will have a place they could be proud of and they will enjoy going to, she explained. Thats what we consider being a hero. Armstrong said the biggest logistical problem was getting volunteers from the four stores in Marion County to drive up to an hour from their homes. We got it done, though, she explained. And while those employees might not see the immediate results, Armstrong said, the feedback from the 16-plus hours spent at the complex was tremendous. The folks were very appreciative, we never stopped hearing thank you all day long, Armstrong said, noting community members were constantly praising the store employees for their dedication and efforts. They were so happy with whatever we could provide. It was a very special day for the employees. You could tell it was making a difference to them being out there. Armstrong explained many of the projects will help the Little League to maintain upgrades in the coming years. The concession stand was fitted with new security doors, a new ceiling and other cosmetic needs. New fencing was installed on the T-Ball Field, while fencing in other areas was given much-needed repairs, allowing the facility to host tournaments. They will be able to be self-sustaining; theyll be able to have funds going forward, Armstrong said. Armstrong said Lowes will be represented at Opening Day ceremonies next spring and she, for one, looks forward to seeing the impact the 16-plus hours made upon the children, parents, coaches and board members. Its going to be amazing to be a part of that day, she said. Brian Sweat, the president of Dunnellon Little League, praised the efforts of all of the volunteers and Lowes for providing much-needed funding. Ill tell you, just seeing the outpouring of support from the community, its overwhelming, Sweat said. Weve got a lot of work left to do, but just the grant they gave us, we would never have been able to do as much as weve done without (Lowes). Sweat also praised the efforts of Lt. Sue Webb with the Dunnellon Police Department. Not only is she a great board member, shes become a friend to all of us out there, Sweat said. The Dunnellon Police Department continuously sends us volunteers. Park improvements are a long way from over, Sweat said, but volunteers will continue working on the park in the coming months to have it ready for Opening Day in the Spring. As long as we have the money, well continue with them, Sweat said, adding the park is no longer an embarrassment, its now one of the nicer parks in the area. But there is always room for improvement. Also, Dunnellon Little League will host its Family Fun Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Little League complex. There will be games, food and fun. There is no charge to the community to attend the event. There will be raffles for prizes.

Parkinsons; his mother has Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known and referred to as Lou Gehrigs Disease. So for Kenny Slagle, a long-time resident who is been a part of the Dunnellon business scene since he was a youth, discussed it with his wife and daughter, Yolanda Lirarazo. They made the tough decision to close the doors, but know its the right one when it comes to taking care of family. Weve enjoyed it, weve enjoyed the people whove come in throughout the years, Kenny Slagle said of the restaurant at 20359 E. Pennsylvania Ave., Dunnellon, tucked in between Backyard Pools and Spas and Red Foxx Gallery. Weve enjoyed getting to know a lot of them, theyve become like family. But life changes and sends us in another direction. So come Friday, Oct. 26, Myriam Slagle will prepare her last meals for the public, the stoves and other kitchen appliances will be turned off, the dishwasher will run its final cycle and Kenny Slagle will turn off the lights and lock the doors one final time. Its going to be a sad thing to experience, Kenny Slagle said, noting his father ran a car dealership from 1968 to 2007 while his uncle still runs an auto mechanic shop on County Road 488. Ive enjoyed it a lot. Granted, I wasnt the one preparing the meals, but this was a fun time. While his wife busily prepared meals along with the other cooks and his daughter tended to customers, he greeted them, heard their tales of fortune and woes. It was like being a bartender at times, he said with a laugh. Thered be some people who would come in and just need someone to talk to. Id listen and offer advice at times. Not all will be lost though for those craving Myriams signature dishes, as the Slagles announced Sandra and Crofton Highfield will tentatively open a new establishment, the Purple Sage Caf, on Nov. 1 in the same location. Sandra Highfield said she has been a chef for the past six years, working in Fort Lauderdale. Sandra Highfield explained shes been working closely with Myriam the past four weeks, learning recipes for most popular dishes, including her Cuban sandwich. Theyre the same recipes, she said, noting her restaurant will have an international flavor to it. So if youre still craving what Myriam cooked, you can still get it. Sandra Highfield said her restaurant will serve breakfast in addition to lunch and dinner. Were excited, apprehensive and nervous, she explained. We want customers to feel as welcome at our place as they did at Myriams. We want them to feel like family. Riverland News, Thursday, October 25, 2012 3 000D0CP 000CXBH *D0150, D0274, D1110.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, October 25, 2012 River views Beware of calls about absentee ballots I may have been party to a scam. I received a political survey call about three weeks ago. They asked how I was voting, for whom was I voting for president and then asked if I would like to vote by absentee ballot. I was thrilled. I verified my address I did not give it to the caller and they assured me the absentee ballot would be out to me as soon as possible. Well, three weeks later, it still has not arrived. So, I was thinking, could this be a scam? Are other citizens getting the same call? Are they not receiving the absentee ballot either? Are they confused about weather or not to go vote in person? Please if any one did get this same phone call, please do not let it deter you from voting for the party of your choice and the man of your choice. Cheryn Conly Dunnellon Editors Note: We would encourage you to call the Supervisor of Elections office in regard to an absentee ballot. The Supervisor of Elections office can be reached at 352620-3290. Vote carefully, vote smart, make your vote countSo President Obama and the Democrats want four more years. During the last two years of the Bush administration, the Democrats had absolute control of the House of Representatives and the Senate. Following that, they had absolute control of all government including the presidency. Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and President Obama stated that this would be the most transparent government in history. How did they do? The Democrats met behind closed doors excluding the American people and the Republicans from any debate. The financial system collapsed. The housing market collapsed. The biggest oil spill in the history of our country, all because of no oversight. Scandalous behavior of business trips by various administration segments. Fifteen percent to 20 percent unemployment. Substantial decrease in the net worth of American households. Minimal job growth and at subpar wages and many part time. Five hundred billion dollars stolen from Medicare to provide health care for illegals. Sen. Nelson voted for this. Twenty-two new taxes on the middle class buried in Obama care. Significant downgrade of U.S. A night under the stars, a beary morning S ome weeks its almost impossible to come up with a story idea. This was one of them. I struggled and struggled. Oh, I had plenty of scenarios swarming in my head, but none of them were coming together as an interesting piece of work. I could write about the tiny fight me and my granddaughter had where she made me cry. It was silly really and I never get mad at her. I was trying to take a picture of her with her camera and instead I ended up taking a close up picture of my mouth and nose. Even though I asked her to delete it, she laughed instead and threatened to put it on Facebook as a joke. Why did that make me cry? I could write about my husband being out of town and I so enjoy that once in a while. I havent cooked or cleaned all week and I could actually watch all the girly shows, like Dancing with the Stars, on the big TV. Pajamas were on by 7 oclock every night. I wouldnt want to do it all the time, but I do enjoy the break. I guess I could mention that the teacher called my daughter last week and asked if she could sign James up for the gifted program. We all know hes extra special, but its nice when the school acknowledges it, too, which reminds me both of the kids got good interim reports and they seem to like their teachers this year. My job is changing. Ive been switched into a new department and will have new duties and responsibilities. I dont know whether to be excited or nervous. We finally got Skype on our computer. The first couple of days we Skyped everybody and couldnt get enough. It sure is nice to be able to see my brother and nieces while speaking to them, and my niece Tori is playing the French horn now and we were treated to a show via Skype. The weather is starting to cool off and we finally opened the windows. There is nothing better than October in Florida. The sky seems brighter and bluer somehow. I should mention that travel ball softball league is well under way and taking up most of our weekends. I sure hope my daughter and I dont get lost. James is being tested for his next level belt soon in karate. He still only weighs 50 pounds soaking wet, but he seems to be growing every week. My least favorite holiday, Halloween, is coming up soon. I should look on the bright side there will be plenty of candy around for munching. I got two new pairs of shoes this week. Im excited about that. By the time this gets published Jazz Up Dunnellon will be over, so I cant write about that, even though its one of the things I look forward to every year.

RIVERLAND NEWS THE OTHER GUY LETTERS JERSEY GIRL GUEST COLUMN T he 2012 Marion County sheriffs election will affect your life and property rights more than any local election in our countys history. Our federal government has begun a takeover of our personal, property and Constitutional rights never before seen in America. Your sheriff is the only elected county official who can legally defend your rights. Did you know that your county sheriff is the highestranking law enforcement officer in the county? He has the authority to forbid federal agencies such as the EPA, the IRS, the Bureau of Land Management and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms from confiscating your businesses, livestock, farmland, gardens and guns. Many citizens and even law enforcement officers do not know this. Maintaining public safety is the sheriffs main job, but how many law officers understand that public safety has two parts? It means keeping you physically safe from criminals, and it also means protecting you from a federal government that claims the power to confiscate your property in violation of the U.S. Constitution. Across America, citizens have had land, businesses and livestock seized, water for their crops denied, farms condemned because of some little critter on a protected species list, and crushing fines levied. As your sheriff, I will defend you against criminals and protect your property against unconstitutional seizures from federal agencies. All law enforcement officers must swear an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. However, most have never studied or even read the Constitution and fewer still will side with citizens against a federal government seeking more power and control. Eastern Michigan University conducted a study in which law enforcement officers were asked this important question: If given an unconstitutional order by a superior, would you follow that order or would you keep your sacred oath to uphold, support and defend the Constitution of the United States? Eighty-eight percent of law officers surveyed said they would not support the Constitution. Sheriffs candidate: Ill restore pride Much ado about nothing C amping was always a thrill for me as a child, and I generally never had to stray far to enjoy a night under the stars. A cousin who lived up the hill always put up her familys tent shortly after summer break began because she knew her family needed to air it out for their annual camping pilgrimages during the muchneeded summer breaks. Now mind you this wasnt a pup tent, this was like a suite at the Marriott. It was big enough to sleep a gaggle of youths. Granted, we always pitched the tent on our fall football field in the churchs field behind her house. More often than not, we used it as an excuse for late-night games such as hide and seek and ghosts in the graveyard. Rarely did we sleep, unless the noise level of the girls earpiercing screams awoke my cousins parents, and by then we knew it was time to pile in the tent and call it a night. There was nothing like running through the grass early in the morning with a light dew, not worried about plowing through a mound of fire ants perhaps the only thing I can truly say I loathe about Florida. Even as an adolescent youth, summer excursions to Branson, Mo., in the my familys pop-up camper were usually the highlights of our break from the summer doldrums of mornings spent at the baseball field and afternoons poolside, because as we quickly learned as youths dunking one another in the shallow end lead to mandatory tanning sessions, despite our pleas with the lifeguards. It was on our summer excursions we learned my dad could pack a cooler full of goodies and ice it down well enough even an Eskimo would get frost bite sticking their hand in it; marshmallows are best roasted to a golden brown tint; and vacations without your sister are the best. So, with a yearning to teach my boys the art of camping, I opted for a trial run. Its probably ideal not to try this in a deed-restricted community, and Im thankful I didnt have to contend with breaking any covenants. However, Im certain I might have broken at least one law when I pitched the tent in the front yard, dug a hole and gathered up as many tree branches that had fallen to the wayside this past summer and set it ablaze for a fire to roast marshmallows and hot dogs. Granted, we ate more marshmallows than hot dogs. Now, the fire, mind you, was controlled, contained and close enough that if it had gotten too out of control, the hose was within striking distance. Yes, I realize that doesnt make it any better, and as the Citrus County Sheriffs Office helicopter hovered above, I was fairly certain I had caught the attention of local law enforcement. As the fire crackled and the smoke wafted into the night air, the campout for three grew in See LETTERS page 9 See DECASTRO page 9 Bernie DeCastro Audrey Beem Jeff Bryan Editor See OTHER page 5 See JERSEY page 5

Give me Keith Catons Bluz Busters on one side and Donald Js R&B on the other with a giant sausage and peppers sandwich in my hand and Im a happy camper. There seems to be a frog epidemic going on. Ive never seen so many tiny green frogs in my life. I myself am not a fan even though I know most people love them so Im ready to find a cure. There are many seafood festivals coming up here. Ive had to write them all down on the calendar so I dont forget any of them. I think Cedar Key is my favorite, but this year we also want to try the one down in Sebastian. Im so excited about the giant Rainbow Springs yard sale coming up next weekend. This will be our third year. We get on our golf cart and make a day out of it. Last year, we found many treasures even though it was raining and some people didnt set up. This year, Im looking for new pieces for the kitchen and my husband is searching for old clocks. But sorry everyone, I wish I could have come up with a story for this week but sometimes theres just not much going on. I promise next week Ill do better. numbers. Perhaps children can pick up the scent of a roasted marshmallow rather easily, but the boys neighborhood friends joined in laughing and squealing with delight as marshmallows were set ablaze. So I did my best to teach the youngsters how to properly roast a marshmallow. It fell on deaf ears, because apparently watching a marshmallow catch fire is quite the sight. Who was I to argue? The children were having a blast as they darted away from the campfire into the darkness for a game of hide and seek. Soon the kids returned to the tent in an attempt to share scary stories, despite the fact it was more of a contest to see who howl like a werewolf. Shortly afterward the boys friends were called home, a similar reminder of parents stepping into front porches calling for their friends to return home. The boys enthusiasm of a camping trip waned as a long day caught up with them. We doused the campfire, turned off the front porch light and buried ourselves in sleeping bags and dozed off. Well, they did as I watched them snuggle into their bags and drift off, dreaming of a camp out in the woods with lions, tigers and bears, oh my! A short while later as the traffic died down, I climbed into the tent and wrapped myself in the last blanket. As I was awoken by the boys pouncing on me, they asked if I heard the bear growling outside the tent during the night. It was sooooooo loud daddy, they shouted. I just hope the neighbors didnt have their windows open, they might have taken a few shots at the sleeping bear in the tent. Riverland News, Thursday, October 25, 2012 5 000CZUU 12084 S.

I t happened to me again this past week for the umpteenth time. The last time it happened, I promised myself it would never happen again, as long as I lived. So much for my promises, or maybe I died. I found myself stranded at the neighborhood grocery store. I meant to put gas in my car, honest I did. Somehow, it slipped my mind. I do not mind things slipping my mind if they are not important, and if it does not involve the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Unfortunately for me, this did. I dont mind lectures from my Beloved, if I could sometimes pick the topic. Topics like religion and politics would be a nice change. Her topic, which she never tires of, is my forgetfulness. At least I cant remember any other topic at the moment. My car was definitely out of gas and I was going nowhere in it. My only recourse was to walk across the street to the store, and call my wife to come and bail me out of trouble. Every husband knows how difficult this is because we have to do it so often. I went to the phone booth in the store and made the call. Then I went and took a seat to wait for her arrival. As I was waiting, I noticed an elderly gentleman come into the store. I call him a gentleman, but these days, who knows? This man walked into the store as if he was concerned about being followed. Every few steps he threw a glance over his shoulder as if someone was stalking him. Since I did not have anything to do for the next 20 minutes, I settled back to watch. When he got into the store, he cautiously walked around the store as if casing it. So many stores are being robbed; I didnt know but this man was planning to pull off a heist. My interest piqued, which kept my mind off the trouble I was in with my wife when she arrived to pick me up. When a person is in trouble, it is always a good thing to try to take ones mind off said trouble, and on someone who might be in more trouble than you are at the moment. At least, thats what I told myself at the time. When a person is facing trouble, he will say anything to himself to calm those jagged nerves. The man walked around 6 Riverland News, Thursday, October 25, 2012 Be sure, your sin will find you out OUT TO PASTOR D UNNELLON F IRST U NITED M ETHODIST C HURCH 21501 W. Highway 40 Rev.

As far as I could tell, he was an ordinary man with no special features. He walked with a slow shuffle, but thats to be expected when a mans body ages. I saw him stand over against a corner for several minutes while he intently watched the front door. A little spooked by this time, I did not know if I should alert the manager or call the police. I envisioned the headlines in the newspapers the next day: Local pastor dies a heros death in the crossfire. I sure would like to be a hero, but only in my own mind. This hero business can be a little dangerous, so I was in a quandary. In scanning the gentleman as best I could, I knew he could not have a large weapon on his person. The loose fitting shirt revealed no bomb strapped to his chest, which was a little comforting. Then the gentleman began to move and I froze. My life flashed before me in an instant which bored me almost to death. I never want to experience anything like that ever again. My focus once again went to the gentleman in motion. What was he going to do? Gradually he eased up to the bakery department. I almost stood, but at my height, I would be an easy target. Its hard for anyone to miss a barn door, especially one with a flashy smile. I braced myself for what would happen next. Then it happened. The elderly gentleman, with one last glance over his shoulder, bought a chocolate clair. I was confused relieved but confused. What was all the secrecy about? About this time, I saw him slither toward the bench where I was sitting. Without looking at me, the man sank into the corner as though hiding from someone. He sat there for a few minutes and then he opened his bag with the clair. Just as he took his first bite, someone recognized him, came up and said, Henry, is that a chocolate clair youre eating? He glanced at me and gave me one of those sick smiles that every husband recognizes. No matter how hard you try to keep something (like clairs) from your wife, it is impossible. There is a spiritual lesson here. No matter how hard you try to hide your sin, somewhere, somehow, when you least expect it, someone will see you. An Old Testament scripture lays down an important principle in this regard. But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the Lord: and be sure your sin will find you out. (Numbers 32:23 KJV.) David, the Psalmist, knew this and wrote, Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalm 139:23-24 KJV.) Live your life as though someone was watching you, because, Someone is watching you. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P .O.

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

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

That is why the three main points in my platform are: Maintaining public safety; Preserving your personal liberty and property rights; And, resisting tyranny. When Congress passed the unconstitutional Brady Bill, requiring every sheriff to do the federal governments job of conducting background checks for gun buyers at their own expense and under threat of imprisonment, Sheriff Richard Mack of Graham County, Ariz., resisted. He won a landmark decision in the U.S. Supreme Court overturning the unconstitutional Brady Bill. Other sheriffs who put the rule of law before establishment pressures have protected their citizens against unconstitutional government seizures of private property. Marion County needs a sheriff who will protect citizens safety, and who will also defend their personal and property rights against government overreach. I am the only candidate who has stated unequivocally that he will refuse to obey an unconstitutional order, and will not confiscate the peoples weapons. I will put the Constitution and the citizens of Marion County first. Recently, the Marion County Sheriffs Office has been rocked with scandals involving sex and security breaches. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the MCSO. How safe is the public if law enforcement officers do not obey the law? As a department outsider, I will clean up the corruption, guarantee public safety and restore honor to the MCSO. Character matters. Bernie DeCastro will square off against Republican Chris Blair in the Nov. 6 General Election. The winner will serve as Marion County Sheriff until 2016. credit rating with another on the way. The passage of a health care bill that 70 percent of our population did not want and still do not want. Of course, AARP supports it. They sell insurance. A president bent on apologizing to the Middle East and the Middle East in flames. An embassy attack and burned and four diplomats killed because of lack of security even though the administration knew the attack was coming. Guns for illegals and Border Guards killed. Lawsuits against states that want to enforce our immigration laws. A reduction in real income for the middle class. A raid on Social Security income under the guise of giving a tax cut. The Democrats embrace the thugs of Wall Street, but deride the genteel tea party. They gave $500,000 retention bonuses to Wall Street, which caused the problem. Sen. Reid wants to see Mr. Romneys tax returns, but wont release his own to show us how he arrived in Washington penniless and is now a multimillionaire. President Obama will not release his scholastic records. President Obama sent billions of stimulus money overseas. The jobs the Democrats claim to have saved are all union jobs that support Democrats financially. There is no energy policy. There is less exploration on public lands today. All the increase is on private land. The Democrats shut out oil from Canada and closed coal mines in West Virginia. President Obama blames the Republican House for his failures. What did he do when he had absolute control of both houses during his first two years? Lie after lie in the Democrats attack ads. The Democrats say Romney is too rich. Well, so was Kennedy and Kerry. Four more years? I think not. Look at the mess Europe is in and they got that way by being too generous, too cavalier about their ability to provide for their people. This all happened when they were not paying for their own defense or United Nations costs. The U.S. is paying this. This mess would occurred sooner. We have a chance to clean up our mess, but we have to be careful in how we vote. Richard P. Mack Dunnellon Fundraiser for Cops for Kids a successThe 14th annual Jazz Up Dunnellon was hosted by the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by many fine businesses of Dunnellon. The Dunnellon Police Department had its second annual Bar, which served up two different styles of non-alcoholic drinks. The police departments goal is to promote delicious non-alcoholic drinks to the public and show that you can have a great time without the alcohol. This years fundraiser brought in more than $800. All the proceeds raised will benefit the Cops for Kids program, which is like the Shop with a Cop program. This program will provide a child the opportunity to shop for their family and make this holiday season memorable. The families in need are selected through the schools and provided to our department. Last year, we helped 10 families, and this year we hope to help more. Thank you to our sponsors Greenlight Communications, which sponsored our Dont Drink and Drive LED cups, Sonic for the ice, Circle K for the totes, our volunteers who assisted with setting and breaking down the booth and to the employees for all the ingredients we use to make our refreshing non-alcoholic drinks. We also had recipe books available for free, which provided ways to make awesome party drinks without alcohol. We still have books available at the police department, so come in and pick one up. Again, thank you for supporting your local police department and giving back to your community.Joanne Black, chief, Officers and Staff, Dunnellon Police Department Riverland News, Thursday, October 25, 2012 9 LETTERS continued from page 4 000CWLW N E W S U B S C R I B E R S S A L E N E W S U B S C R I B E R S S A L E NEW SUBSCRIBERS SALE!

DHS ATHLETES OF THE WEEK PRESENTED BY GREENLIGHT DUNNELLON COMMUNICATIONS The Dunnellon High School junior varsity football season has come to an end. The Tigers ended their season Oct. 18 with a bang after traveling to Belleview, bringing home a 36-0 victory. Dunnellon scored on its opening drive, when sophomore Justin Hamm caught the ball for a score for a 6-0 lead. The Tigers still lead 6-0 entering the second quarter, when on a fourth-and-3, sophomore quarterback Chase Brattin handed the ball off to Hamm, who ran in for the touchdown. Sophomore Akeem Coleman brought in the twopoint conversion, giving Dunnellon a 14-0 lead. At the 41-yard line, the Rattlers decided to go for it on a forth-and18 when Hamm intercepted the ball and ran in the touchdown with 1:49 on the clock. The Tigers converted the two-point attempted for 22-0 half-time lead. In the second half, on third-and-14 with the ball on the 47-yard line, Dunnellons Andre Hairston intercepted return for a touchdown as nullified because of a penalty, giving the Tigers the ball at the 35-yard line. Dunnellon, however, couldnt take advantage of the short field position. In the fourth quarter, with the Tigers at the Rattlers 23-yard line, Brattin ran right side for the touchdown on a on third-and-8 with 4:40 remaining in the game. Dunnellon intercepted another errant Belleview pass as sophomore Colby Cranney intercepted the ball at the 23-yard line before pitching it off to freshman Phillip Hitt, who ran down the left side for a 76-yard score. This win was a good way to end the season, said Cranney. We had a good team effort this game and Im proud of the way a lot of the freshman stepped up. DHS JV thumps Belleview Dunnellon High cheerleaders earn national accolades Every summer the Universal Cheerleading Association (UCA) selects a few varsity cheerleaders from each workshop the opportunity to go to London and perform in the London New Years Day Parade with an award called All-American. A week-long trip across the pond sightseeing and doing what they love, cheering, is a cheerleaders dream-come-true. With only 12 percent of America being offered this amazing adventure, Dunnellon High Schools varsity squad was ecstatic when six of their 18 members were chosen this past summer. Four seniors: Brittany Harrod, Jacilyn Indellicati, Shawna Jeroski and Heather Mumm; and two sophomores, Savannah Joiner and Valerie Langley were the lucky six. For all of the seniors, the nomination was a longawaited surprise. Ive wanted it since my ninth-grade year, Jeroski said. I didnt think Id get it because this was my first year trying out (for All-American), but Im extremely excited that I got chosen. Harrod was more surprised than anything to hear Shawna Jeroski One cheerleader raising funds for overseas event Photos by JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsDunnellon tight end Connor Wentz looks for room to run after catching a pass from quarterback Jordon Boley. Wentz had a game-high 64 yards receiving and one touchdown, a 22-yarder late in the quarter against Belleview. DHS keeps playoff hopes alive; critical games on slate LAURA RILEY For the Riverland News The Dunnellon football squad played smothering defense and deployed a balanced offensive assault to handily defeat Belleview 42-10 and improve its District 5A-5 record to 2-1 at Ned Love Field on Friday night. The Tigers (3-4, 2-1) piled up 460 total yards 422 more than the Rattlers (2-5, 0-3) while getting 6-for-8 passing for 82 yards and three TDs and 123 yards and a TD on eight carries from senior dualthreat Jordon Boley. We havent had a drop-back passing game like that in a long time, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said. Jordons playing at a high level for us right now, and (senior tight end) Connor Wentz, (senior receiver) Andre Jackson and (junior receiver) L.D. Thomas are doing good things for us. Im really proud of our kids, he added. We have good senior leaders and our kids have never come out and had a bad practice. Weve been down, and weve been hurt, but credit our kids and staff with battling through. The Tiger defense, which allowed just three yards in the first half, has held its last two opponents to under 100 total yards combined to get the team right back into the district race after a 1-4 start overall. Our defensive line is pretty salty and our linebackers are starting to play really well too, Beasley said. A kid that doesnt get much recognition for us on defense is (senior end) Dana Washington. He and (junior defensive lineman) Keiwan Jones are a big force down in there. Its tough sledding running against us. Im really pleased with where were at, Beasley added. We just have to continue to ride the wave of momentum. That happens sometimes with 17-year-old kids. Wentz had a gamehigh 64 receiving yards on four receptions, which included a 22yard touchdown late in the second quarter. A 62-yard scoring run by Boley on an option keeper early in the third quarter put Dunnellon ahead 35-0 and forced a running clock for much of the second half. (Tigers offensive coordinator) Tommy Sutton saw some things Belleview was doing schematically that opened up some readoption stuff out of our pistol, and their backside defensive end was coming hard so Jordon read that and kept it and came off the edge and did a good job, Beasley said. Boley credited his offensive lines recently AMANDA BARNEY For the Riverland News DHS varsity volleball finishes winless; JV shocks Belleview for historic win A season filled with dedication, effort and rough times is finally at its end. Long nights on the court have ceased and practice is done for. Sadly, this season wasnt as triumphant as the Dunnellon High School varsity and junior varsity teams had hoped for; however, a tremendous amount of improvement was shown as the season progressed. The Junior Varsity began to win games and the varsity team came closer to winning. Last week was a great week for Junior Varsity coach Dallas Towns and her team. Never before had JV beaten Belleview until last Tuesday when the Lady Tigers broke through for a 23-22, 27-26 and 28-26 victory. The game started out rough, but quickly turned over in Dunnellons favor. Savannah Helton had some tips, Tyra Thomas had a few assists, Kerri Frazier served exceptionally and Rebecca Perpente saved the team from a few opposing kill shots. On the varsity side, the Lady Tigers dropped the match to the Lady Rattlers. Both the varsity and junior varsity lost their matches to Lake Weir. The varsity teams season came to an end with a loss in the opening round of the district tournament.

improved play with a lot of his teams offensive success. Our offensive line is a big key, he said. We stopped sticking our hand in the dirt and getting after people like were known for. Weve started doing that again and its showing. If we can come out and run and throw the ball like that, its hard to stop, he added. The Tigers stay in the district with a game at Crystal River next Friday and a contest with North Marion in two weeks. Were really excited, Beasley said of his teams upcoming matchups. Weve been clamping down on it and not wanting to talk about it, but now its here. Our coaches and players are chomping at the bit to get to those two big rivalry games. We know Crystal River has a great ball team, Beasley continued. Its going to be a physical football game. Those are the kind that we like, so were going to go and see what happens. her name announced. I was not expecting it at all, especially for my name to be the first one called, Harrod explained. Indellicati had been chosen her sophomore year on junior varsity, but getting chosen on varsity, makes it even more important because its at a higher level, Indellicati said. But things dont always work out the way theyre planned. For the sophomores, Langley decided she would rather wait and tryout for All-American her senior year and travel then if she is chosen. Joiner was excited when she got the award but thought the distance was too far of a trip. As for Harrod and Mumm, time was not on their side. Im not going to London because the deadlines were too soon, Harrod explained. Ive always wanted to go, but the fact that I even got chosen to go is enough for me. Mumm, who fundraised for the trip with Harrod, made the executive decision that the experience wouldnt be worth it without her friend. I didnt want to go without Brittany, said Mumm. Indellicati always had hopes of going to London but the timing just wasnt right. Since I just got a car I didnt want to ask my family for $3000 more, Indellicati said. Jeroski, is the long cheerleader chosen form DHS who has decided to take the trip. Ive been holding yardsales (to help fundraise for my trip), Jeroski said. My family has been really supportive and is helping me also. One thing is for sure: the entire squad is proud of what the six girls have accomplished and what theyve been offered. The girls worked very hard at camp and if it had been up to me they could have all gotten All-American, said Suzanne Wallace, varsity cheerleading coach.

Jane Ashman Romeo Principal See ASHMAN page 13 PRINCIPALS OFFICE DHS teacher, students honored at Journalism Workshop The Florida Scholastic Press Association District 2 Fall Workshop Saturday, Oct. 13, at the University of Florida proved to be a a very productive experience, said Julie Mancini, Director for FSPA District 2, only after a minor bump in the road with campus police, when police refused to unlock the classroom doors so the workshop could take place. After a short wait, Wayne Garcia, executive director for FSPA, who works part time at UF, discovered he had a set of keys to unlock the doors. But the whole day was definitely not focused on outfoxing the police. The day moved on to an opening session, where keynote speaker Wayne Garcia spoke about the future of journalism. This was followed by three sessions where the 24 attending students and teachers could attend workshops of their choice and a tour of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for the students.

Students in FSPA member publications are able to compete in various contests, attend the State Convention and earn members-only scholarships.

16 Riverland News, Thursday, October 25, 2012 Jack OMelon 1 round watermelon Melon baller Pen Knife Toothpicks Cut a thin slice from the bottom of watermelon to provide a stable base. Cut circular piece of the rind from the top, big enough to reach into to remove the flesh. Carefully remove that top section and reserve for later to be used as a lid. Remove the flesh from inside the watermelon using melon baller, reserv ing melon balls for snacking or a fruit salad. Once flesh is removed, drain any excess liquid from inside watermelon. Using pen or knife, draw or scratch the out lines of eyes, nose, mouth, hair, ears or any other feature you want on the side of the water melon, using a template as a guide. Then, following the outlines, cut the features into the watermelon and remove excess rind. To create a 3D effect with the features after you have cut them, push gently on the flaps of rind from inside the water melon. (Y ou can use toothpicks to prop the rind, if you want.) A safe, battery-operated lamp can be firmly placed inside the watermelon to provide a haunting glow. Place the circular piece of rind that you reserved back on top of the watermelon and your Jack OMelon is ready to be displayed. Tiki Mask Table Decoration1 oblong seedless watermelon Pencil or green dry erase marker Melon baller Paring and kitchen knives Spoon Channel knife Toothpick Slice 1/4 inch off end of water melon to provide a stable base. Use pencil to draw the face, making adjustments in scale to your particular watermelon. Use melon baller to scoop out nostrils; use small paring knife to clean up edges. Next use paring knife to cut out the inside mouth area, leaving room for the teeth. Next cut individual teeth, using the same small paring knife, and use a spoon to dig out a large area of flesh for the mouth cavity. Next carve out eyes, digging a deep cavity in each, for drama. Use a channel knife to carve details. Use some carved out pieces to cut a bone decoration for top of head, and attach with a toothpick. FAMILY FEATURES his Halloween, why not put a fun twist onpumpkincarvingbymakingsomeJack OMelons? Watermelons carve up bootifully, and you can eat the fruit right away, making it easy to scare up some delicious Halloween fun. This Bat Jack OMelon, Tiki Mask, and Jack OMelon man can add a frightfully fun touch to a Halloween party and the whole family can help carve them. To get more carving ideas and instruc tions, visit www.watermelon.org. Watermelons are a healthy addition to any Halloween party. Theyre the lycopene leader among fresh produce, are an excel lent source of vitamins A and C, and contain 6 percent of the daily value for vitamin B6 all of which boost your immune system. Carving Tips Have the watermelon at room temperature when you carve. The cuts will be easier to make. You can chill the water melon in the refrigerator after cutting and before serving. After youve drawn the design on the rind, insert toothpicks in key places to use as guides for your cuts. Use a sharp knife with a pointed tip the sharper the knife, the easier and cleaner the cuts will be. When attaching cut pieces on the watermelon to make your design, use round toothpicks or skewers. Flat toothpicks will often break due to the weight of the piece or the thickness of the rind. Bat Jack OMelon 2 round watermelons, preferably yellow, for the body Kitchen and paring knives Cutting board Green dry-erase marker (preferably washable) Large bowl and spoon Candy corns 4 to 6-inch wooden skewers Toothpicks Candle or light Wash watermelons under cool running water and pat dry. On a cutting board, place the roundest watermelon on its side and cut off 1/4 to 1/2 inch of the stem end, being careful not to cut too deep into the white part of the rind. This will pro vide a sturdy base. Using dry-erase marker, draw two eyes, an oval for a nose and a smiling mouth that would resemble a bat. Draw two ears and an outline of a forehead, continuing the line around to make the top for the bat that will be removed. Use a knife to carefully cut away inside of the eyes, nose and mouth and also around the top of watermelon. Remove top and hollow out watermelon with spoon, reserving fruit to use in a fruit salad or punch. On the second watermelon, use dry-erase marker to draw 2 bat wings (the top of the wings will have 2 points and the bottom of the wings will have 2 points.) Use knife to carefully cut wings out, reserving inside of watermelon to make fruit salad or punch. Attach wings to side of watermelon bat with wooden skewers, and use toothpicks to attach candy-corn as fangs. Insert a candle to light up your bat.

this project, City Manager Lisa Algiere said. This is going to impact them as much as the business owners. This is certainly a vital project for the city. Once the information is collected, Kimley-Horn, Algiere said, will come back with a conceptual plan as well as potential costs. From there, the city will determine how to move forward with the project now that the state is moving forward with its portion to bring the Rails to Trails into the city of Dunnellon. Kimley-Horns tentative plan called for running a multi-use trail along the south side of Pennsylvania Avenue from Blue Run Park and into the Historic District. According to that tentative plan, it would mean officials would eliminate the sidewalk on the south side of East Pennsylvania Avenue and strategically place landscaped medians along the road with a turn lane as well in an effort to calm traffic. Plans also call for streetscaping and standard signage throughout town to promote the newly constructed bicycle trail, and city officials plan to work with state agencies to provide a temporary connection to the Withlacoochee Rails to Trails. That highly popular trail currently runs through Citrus, Hernando and Pasco counties. City officials are hopeful to create a new trailhead at Blue Run Park, which has undergone major renovations throughout the past year to improve parking, as well as a newly constructed tubers exit and canoe/kayak launch ramp. One of the most significant projects in the Explore Dunnellon Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Blueway Plan is a Withlacoochee Trail Extension to extend the trail north into Dunnellon, the report stated. This trail extension involves multiple segments completed over several phases through coordination with multiple entities. The plan, if implemented, calls for the project to be completed in four phases: Phase 1: Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trailhead and Trail : The first segment of the Withlacoochee Trail Extension is the construction of the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trailhead and Trail. The Florida Department of Environmental Protections Office of Greenways and Trails currently has both completed design plans and funding for the Cross Florida Greenway segment that would extend from Citrus County Road 39 to the Dunnellon Sports Complex, the report stated. These plans include a bridge over the Withlacoochee River at the Marion County-Citrus County boundary. This section of the Withlacoochee Trail Extension has received approval from the Florida Department of Transportations Environmental Management Office, and is in the process of being advertised for bids from contractors for construction. Phase 2: Blue Run Park Spur Trail: The initial plan for the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trail included a spur through Blue Run Park to connect to Pennsylvania Avenue. In order to complete the design in time for a deadline to receive federal funds, the spur was removed from the design. Although removed from the initial design, the Blue Run Park spur is a vital connection from the trail to the City of Dunnellon. Providing this connection will allow bicyclists and other trail users to easily access Pennsylvania Avenue and the local businesses along the corridor, and to travel into the city via Pennsylvania Avenue. Phase 3: Withlacoochee Trail Connection Short Term: To provide a connection from the Withlacoochee Trail Gulf Junction Trailhead to the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trail, a short-term connection can be made while a long-term connection can be planned, designed, and constructed. The short-term connection would be made by signing West Magenta Drive from the trailhead to West G Martinelli Boulevard, West G Martinelli Boulevard from West Magenta Drive to North Academy Drive, North Academy Drive from West G Martinelli Boulevard to Denice Point, and Denice Point from North Academy Drive to US 41. Denice Point will need to be paved for approximately 0.4 mile. The intersection of Denice Point and U.S. 41 is across from the intersection of C.R. 39 (W. Withlacoochee Trail) and U.S. 41. This intersection is the location where the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trail project begins. This phase will provide an important connection between the trailhead and the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trail, and ultimately, to the city of Dunnellon via the Blue Run Park Spur at a relatively low cost. Bicyclists currently travel from the Gulf Junction trailhead to the city of Dunnellon by going through privately owned property, the report states. Signing this route as a bicycle route and posting the hours of operation as sunrise to sunset, consistent with the Withlacoochee State Trail, this route can provide a connection from the trailhead to the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trail. The city of Dunnellon should coordinate with the FDEP Office of Greenways and Trails for funding the signage. Because the roads are in Citrus County, additional coordination with Citrus County will be necessary. Phase 4: Withlacoochee Trail Connection Long Term: The planned Dunnellon Trail portion of the Cross Florida Greenway is incongruous with the existing Withlacoochee State Trail. However, if the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trail is extended south along U.S. 41, additional opportunities to connect to the existing Withlacoochee State Trail would be available, the report states. Extending the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trail south to North Country Club Way could allow for travelers on the Withlacoochee Trail to cross U.S. 41 and travel north into Dunnellon.

the Chambers executive director. Its just a fun, fun, fun time, where everyone can be a kid if they want to be. I just love Halloween, its one of my favorites. Providing a safe venue, too, is important, she said. This makes it so much safer, Leisure said, applauding the business community for providing a safe place for the kids to go Trick or Treating. Its worth the effort. It gets the community and businesses involved to do something for the kids. I just love doing something for the kids. I get such enjoyment out of it, and seeing kids dressing up is just a part of it. Any business interested in being on the map for the Trail of Treaters should call the Chamber at 489-2320. Dark Side of the RainbowRainbow Springs State will host the second annual Dark Side of the Rainbow, a Trail of Terror, from 7 to 10 p.m. Halloween Night, Oct. 31. Zombies, ghosts, witches and pirates invade a trail at the park, while volunteers take you on a fearful adventure. Admission is $2 per person. Children 5 and younger are free. Trails are uneven so wear closed toed shoes. Flashlights will not be permitted on the trail, but costumes and glow sticks are encouraged. Food or drink will not be allowed on the trails, but the concession stand will be open. Last years event drew more than 300 and this years fright-fest promises even more thrills and fun for area residents, said Nicky Aiken, park services specialist. I think were pretty lucky because its dark and its the woods and both can be really scary together, Aiken said. We have all the things that would scare you in the dark and in the woods, so I think that is pretty exciting.. For more information or if you would like to volunteer, call 465-8555 or email Nicky.Aiken@dep. state.fl.us. Haunted House The Rainbow Lakes Volunteer Fire Department will host its third annual Haunted House Event. Come join us for a spooky good time. Take a tour through the haunted house or kick back and play a few games. You can also meet your local volunteer firefighters. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated. The event will be from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday through Sunday, Oct. 26 to 28, 3105 S.W. Ivy Place, inside Rainbow Lakes Estates. Fall FestivalReflections Church will host a Fall Festival from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28, at Citrus Springs Middle School. There will be games, inflatables, crafts, concessions and a candy train. Costumes are welcome, but not necessary.Truth of TreatFirst United Methodist Church will host its inaugural Truth or Treat from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The event will be set up similar to a Trunk or Treat, said Debbie Wright, event co-coordinator, noting children and their parents will be provided with free hot dogs and water. For more information, call the church at 4894026. First United Methodist Church is at 21501 W. State Road 40.Cormier Family Light DisplayThe Cormier family will host its second annual Cormier Family Light Display now through Oct. 31. The graveyard scene is at 19719 S.W. 57th Place in Rainbow Acres. The best viewing time, Mark Cormier said, is after sunset. Thats when the many orange, purple and red lights twinkle and dazzle, he explained. This years centerpiece is a 6-foot tall hanging latex witch thats chained to a flaming caldron. The lights in the yard are set to Halloween music as they illuminate the headstones with shades of orange and purple. Some of the grave markers are lit with strobe lights, blacklights, lasers and fog, which makes them more foreboding, Cormier said. The family turned the remains of a sweet gum tree into a 12-foot monster. It features a custom-molded face and uses the limbs as arms each holding a large can of Monster energy drink. Theres another custom feature in this haunted scene thats not for the faint of heart, Cormier said, noting its a bust of a bald man with a cleaver stuck in his head. Its also illuminated with a blacklight, which make its golfball eyes give off an eerie glow. Cormier noted there are several other ghouls, bats and flying ghosts in this must-see Halloween haunt.

Get on the Internet and check your local state website for sex offenders. http:// offender.fdle.state.fl.us/ offender Make sure that your kids stay away from these houses! Make sure you set a time that your kids should be home by. Make sure they know how important it is for them to be home on time or to call immediately if something happens and they are going to be delayed. If your child is carrying a prop, such as a scythe, butcher knife or a pitchfork, make sure the tips are smooth and flexible enough to not cause injury if fallen on. And check that their costumes wont get in the way when they are walking, which could cause them to trip. Put reflector strips on your childs costume; have them carry a flash light or light stick to make them more visible at night by drivers and you can keep an eye on them as well if they get ahead of you while out trick or treating.

Official ceremony slated ThursdayTherell be plenty of pomp and circumstance regarding the initial step toward extending the Withlacoochee Rails to Trails into the city of Dunnellon. But when officials state and local stick those ceremonial shovels into the ground this afternoon on the Marion County side of the Withlacoochee River, it will signify many years of hard work, setbacks and delay finally coming to fruition. That official groundbreaking ceremony to build a bridge spanning the Withlacoochee River will be at 1 p.m. today at Rainbow Rivers Club on San Jose Boulevard. The second step in the process will be to gather information from the East Pennsylvania Streetscaping committee and citizens at a special meeting at 6 p.m. Monday at City Hall in which the East Pennsylvania Streetscaping committee will present its ideas to Kimley-Horn. The engineering company presented a tentative plan to the City Council in February. But, because the bicycle trail would impact businesses along East Pennsylvania Avenue first, the Council directed staff to form a committee to see what aspects of the preliminary study would work best to benefit business owners. Wed certainly love for the public to come and share their input on Never go into a strangers house. There are some people in life who arent very nice to kids and you have to be careful. Remind your kids about not getting into strangers cars or talking to strangers, no matter what the person saysto them. Be careful when you cross a street. Make sure to look in both directions and make sure that there are no cars coming. If you have a little brother or sister with you, take their hand and help them get across the street, too. If the street has a stop light, wait until the cross walk light tells you that its okay to cross now, but still check before you cross, look both ways.

Myriams bidding adieu to Dunnellon Five-plus years ago when Kenny and Myriam Slagle opened the doors to Myriams Restaurant & Grill, it was for the long haul. Since opening in July 2007, they developed their establishment into a family friendly environment, which has prepared thousands of meals. Life, though, doesnt always go according to plan, Kenny Slagle said. Its not the sour economy, which has gripped the nation for the better part of the past four years and forced many businesses in Dunnellon to close their doors. Simply, Kenny Slagle must commit his time to taking care of his elderly parents, both of whom are advancing in age and each battling respective illnesses. His father has Kenny, center, and Mryiam Slagle, along with daughter Yolanda Lirarazo, will close Myriams Restaurant & Grill on Friday.JEFF BRYAN RIverland News JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon Police Department employee Michelle Arnold pieces together pipes for the top of a new outfield fence for the T-Ball field.

Part of the buzz was the sound of power tools hard at work; the other buzz was about the improvements at the decades-old facility in need of major renovations. Though the renovations began months ago with Dunnellon Little League officials and other volunteers throughout the community, it culminated last week with the assistance of additional volunteers and a grant obtained through Lowes Hero program. The Lowes Heroes program encourages employees in a location to team together, adopt a volunteer project with a local nonprofit organization or K-12 public school and make a difference, a news release stated. The group repaired fences, built bleachers, replaced doors, added flag poles, landscaped areas, enhanced the playground, painted and cleaned throughout the two days.

Human Resources manager for the Lowes store on State Road 200, said during the next two weeks, volunteers will return to finish some of the projects that still need to be completed. Overall, Armstrong said, projects are selected on what will make the most impact on the most number of people. Dunnellon Little League for the past several years has had more than 300 children participate in its Summer League. Armstrong, who participated in both days of the restoration project at the complex, said oftentimes projects are selected because the organization has a lack of money, but it boils down to being able to make a difference in the community. My biggest joy is knowing the kids will have a place they could be proud of and they will enjoy going to, she explained. Thats what we consider being a hero. Armstrong said the biggest logistical problem was getting volunteers from the four stores in Marion County to drive up to an hour from their homes. We got it done, though, she explained. And while those employees might not see the immediate results, Armstrong said, the feedback from the 16-plus hours spent at the complex was tremendous. The folks were very appreciative, we never stopped hearing thank you all day long, Armstrong said, noting community members were constantly praising the store employees for their dedication and efforts. They were so happy with whatever we could provide. It was a very special day for the employees. You could tell it was making a difference to them being out there. Armstrong explained many of the projects will help the Little League to maintain upgrades in the coming years. The concession stand was fitted with new security doors, a new ceiling and other cosmetic needs. New fencing was installed on the T-Ball Field, while fencing in other areas was given much-needed repairs, allowing the facility to host tournaments. They will be able to be self-sustaining; theyll be able to have funds going forward, Armstrong said. Armstrong said Lowes will be represented at Opening Day ceremonies next spring and she, for one, looks forward to seeing the impact the 16-plus hours made upon the children, parents, coaches and board members. Its going to be amazing to be a part of that day, she said. Brian Sweat, the president of Dunnellon Little League, praised the efforts of all of the volunteers and Lowes for providing much-needed funding. Ill tell you, just seeing the outpouring of support from the community, its overwhelming, Sweat said. Weve got a lot of work left to do, but just the grant they gave us, we would never have been able to do as much as weve done without (Lowes). Sweat also praised the efforts of Lt. Sue Webb with the Dunnellon Police Department. Not only is she a great board member, shes become a friend to all of us out there, Sweat said. The Dunnellon Police Department continuously sends us volunteers. Park improvements are a long way from over, Sweat said, but volunteers will continue working on the park in the coming months to have it ready for Opening Day in the Spring. As long as we have the money, well continue with them, Sweat said, adding the park is no longer an embarrassment, its now one of the nicer parks in the area. But there is always room for improvement. Also, Dunnellon Little League will host its Family Fun Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Little League complex. There will be games, food and fun. There is no charge to the community to attend the event. There will be raffles for prizes.

Parkinsons; his mother has Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known and referred to as Lou Gehrigs Disease. So for Kenny Slagle, a long-time resident who is been a part of the Dunnellon business scene since he was a youth, discussed it with his wife and daughter, Yolanda Lirarazo. They made the tough decision to close the doors, but know its the right one when it comes to taking care of family. Weve enjoyed it, weve enjoyed the people whove come in throughout the years, Kenny Slagle said of the restaurant at 20359 E. Pennsylvania Ave., Dunnellon, tucked in between Backyard Pools and Spas and Red Foxx Gallery. Weve enjoyed getting to know a lot of them, theyve become like family. But life changes and sends us in another direction. So come Friday, Oct. 26, Myriam Slagle will prepare her last meals for the public, the stoves and other kitchen appliances will be turned off, the dishwasher will run its final cycle and Kenny Slagle will turn off the lights and lock the doors one final time. Its going to be a sad thing to experience, Kenny Slagle said, noting his father ran a car dealership from 1968 to 2007 while his uncle still runs an auto mechanic shop on County Road 488. Ive enjoyed it a lot. Granted, I wasnt the one preparing the meals, but this was a fun time. While his wife busily prepared meals along with the other cooks and his daughter tended to customers, he greeted them, heard their tales of fortune and woes. It was like being a bartender at times, he said with a laugh. Thered be some people who would come in and just need someone to talk to. Id listen and offer advice at times. Not all will be lost though for those craving Myriams signature dishes, as the Slagles announced Sandra and Crofton Highfield will tentatively open a new establishment, the Purple Sage Caf, on Nov. 1 in the same location. Sandra Highfield said she has been a chef for the past six years, working in Fort Lauderdale. Sandra Highfield explained shes been working closely with Myriam the past four weeks, learning recipes for most popular dishes, including her Cuban sandwich. Theyre the same recipes, she said, noting her restaurant will have an international flavor to it. So if youre still craving what Myriam cooked, you can still get it. Sandra Highfield said her restaurant will serve breakfast in addition to lunch and dinner. Were excited, apprehensive and nervous, she explained. We want customers to feel as welcome at our place as they did at Myriams. We want them to feel like family. Riverland News, Thursday, October 25, 2012 3 000D0CP 000CXBH *D0150, D0274, D1110.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, October 25, 2012 River views Beware of calls about absentee ballotsI may have been party to a scam. I received a political survey call about three weeks ago. They asked how I was voting, for whom was I voting for president and then asked if I would like to vote by absentee ballot. I was thrilled. I verified my address I did not give it to the caller and they assured me the absentee ballot would be out to me as soon as possible. Well, three weeks later, it still has not arrived. So, I was thinking, could this be a scam? Are other citizens getting the same call? Are they not receiving the absentee ballot either? Are they confused about weather or not to go vote in person? Please if any one did get this same phone call, please do not let it deter you from voting for the party of your choice and the man of your choice.Cheryn Conly Dunnellon Editors Note: We would encourage you to call the Supervisor of Elections office in regard to an absentee ballot. The Supervisor of Elections office can be reached at 352620-3290.Vote carefully, vote smart, make your vote countSo President Obama and the Democrats want four more years. During the last two years of the Bush administration, the Democrats had absolute control of the House of Representatives and the Senate. Following that, they had absolute control of all government including the presidency. Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and President Obama stated that this would be the most transparent government in history. How did they do? The Democrats met behind closed doors excluding the American people and the Republicans from any debate. The financial system collapsed. The housing market collapsed. The biggest oil spill in the history of our country, all because of no oversight. Scandalous behavior of business trips by various administration segments. Fifteen percent to 20 percent unemployment. Substantial decrease in the net worth of American households. Minimal job growth and at subpar wages and many part time. Five hundred billion dollars stolen from Medicare to provide health care for illegals. Sen. Nelson voted for this. Twenty-two new taxes on the middle class buried in Obama care. Significant downgrade of U.S. A night under the stars, a beary morning Some weeks its almost impossible to come up with a story idea. This was one of them. I struggled and struggled. Oh, I had plenty of scenarios swarming in my head, but none of them were coming together as an interesting piece of work. I could write about the tiny fight me and my granddaughter had where she made me cry. It was silly really and I never get mad at her. I was trying to take a picture of her with her camera and instead I ended up taking a close up picture of my mouth and nose. Even though I asked her to delete it, she laughed instead and threatened to put it on Facebook as a joke. Why did that make me cry? I could write about my husband being out of town and I so enjoy that once in a while. I havent cooked or cleaned all week and I could actually watch all the girly shows, like Dancing with the Stars, on the big TV. Pajamas were on by 7 oclock every night. I wouldnt want to do it all the time, but I do enjoy the break. I guess I could mention that the teacher called my daughter last week and asked if she could sign James up for the gifted program. We all know hes extra special, but its nice when the school acknowledges it, too, which reminds me both of the kids got good interim reports and they seem to like their teachers this year. My job is changing. Ive been switched into a new department and will have new duties and responsibilities. I dont know whether to be excited or nervous. We finally got Skype on our computer. The first couple of days we Skyped everybody and couldnt get enough. It sure is nice to be able to see my brother and nieces while speaking to them, and my niece Tori is playing the French horn now and we were treated to a show via Skype. The weather is starting to cool off and we finally opened the windows. There is nothing better than October in Florida. The sky seems brighter and bluer somehow. I should mention that travel ball softball league is well under way and taking up most of our weekends. I sure hope my daughter and I dont get lost. James is being tested for his next level belt soon in karate. He still only weighs 50 pounds soaking wet, but he seems to be growing every week. My least favorite holiday, Halloween, is coming up soon. I should look on the bright side there will be plenty of candy around for munching. I got two new pairs of shoes this week. Im excited about that. By the time this gets published Jazz Up Dunnellon will be over, so I cant write about that, even though its one of the things I look forward to every year.

RIVERLAND NEWS THE OTHER GUY LETTERS JERSEY GIRL GUEST COLUMN The 2012 Marion County sheriffs election will affect your life and property rights more than any local election in our countys history. Our federal government has begun a takeover of our personal, property and Constitutional rights never before seen in America. Your sheriff is the only elected county official who can legally defend your rights. Did you know that your county sheriff is the highestranking law enforcement officer in the county? He has the authority to forbid federal agencies such as the EPA, the IRS, the Bureau of Land Management and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms from confiscating your businesses, livestock, farmland, gardens and guns. Many citizens and even law enforcement officers do not know this. Maintaining public safety is the sheriffs main job, but how many law officers understand that public safety has two parts? It means keeping you physically safe from criminals, and it also means protecting you from a federal government that claims the power to confiscate your property in violation of the U.S. Constitution. Across America, citizens have had land, businesses and livestock seized, water for their crops denied, farms condemned because of some little critter on a protected species list, and crushing fines levied. As your sheriff, I will defend you against criminals and protect your property against unconstitutional seizures from federal agencies. All law enforcement officers must swear an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. However, most have never studied or even read the Constitution and fewer still will side with citizens against a federal government seeking more power and control. Eastern Michigan University conducted a study in which law enforcement officers were asked this important question: If given an unconstitutional order by a superior, would you follow that order or would you keep your sacred oath to uphold, support and defend the Constitution of the United States? Eighty-eight percent of law officers surveyed said they would not support the Constitution. Sheriffs candidate: Ill restore pride Much ado about nothing Camping was always a thrill for me as a child, and I generally never had to stray far to enjoy a night under the stars. A cousin who lived up the hill always put up her familys tent shortly after summer break began because she knew her family needed to air it out for their annual camping pilgrimages during the muchneeded summer breaks. Now mind you this wasnt a pup tent, this was like a suite at the Marriott. It was big enough to sleep a gaggle of youths. Granted, we always pitched the tent on our fall football field in the churchs field behind her house. More often than not, we used it as an excuse for late-night games such as hide and seek and ghosts in the graveyard. Rarely did we sleep, unless the noise level of the girls earpiercing screams awoke my cousins parents, and by then we knew it was time to pile in the tent and call it a night. There was nothing like running through the grass early in the morning with a light dew, not worried about plowing through a mound of fire ants perhaps the only thing I can truly say I loathe about Florida. Even as an adolescent youth, summer excursions to Branson, Mo., in the my familys pop-up camper were usually the highlights of our break from the summer doldrums of mornings spent at the baseball field and afternoons poolside, because as we quickly learned as youths dunking one another in the shallow end lead to mandatory tanning sessions, despite our pleas with the lifeguards. It was on our summer excursions we learned my dad could pack a cooler full of goodies and ice it down well enough even an Eskimo would get frost bite sticking their hand in it; marshmallows are best roasted to a golden brown tint; and vacations without your sister are the best. So, with a yearning to teach my boys the art of camping, I opted for a trial run. Its probably ideal not to try this in a deed-restricted community, and Im thankful I didnt have to contend with breaking any covenants. However, Im certain I might have broken at least one law when I pitched the tent in the front yard, dug a hole and gathered up as many tree branches that had fallen to the wayside this past summer and set it ablaze for a fire to roast marshmallows and hot dogs. Granted, we ate more marshmallows than hot dogs. Now, the fire, mind you, was controlled, contained and close enough that if it had gotten too out of control, the hose was within striking distance. Yes, I realize that doesnt make it any better, and as the Citrus County Sheriffs Office helicopter hovered above, I was fairly certain I had caught the attention of local law enforcement. As the fire crackled and the smoke wafted into the night air, the campout for three grew in See LETTERS page 9 See DECASTRO page 9 Bernie DeCastro Audrey Beem Jeff Bryan Editor See OTHER page 5 See JERSEY page 5

Give me Keith Catons Bluz Busters on one side and Donald Js R&B on the other with a giant sausage and peppers sandwich in my hand and Im a happy camper. There seems to be a frog epidemic going on. Ive never seen so many tiny green frogs in my life. I myself am not a fan even though I know most people love them so Im ready to find a cure. There are many seafood festivals coming up here. Ive had to write them all down on the calendar so I dont forget any of them. I think Cedar Key is my favorite, but this year we also want to try the one down in Sebastian. Im so excited about the giant Rainbow Springs yard sale coming up next weekend. This will be our third year. We get on our golf cart and make a day out of it. Last year, we found many treasures even though it was raining and some people didnt set up. This year, Im looking for new pieces for the kitchen and my husband is searching for old clocks. But sorry everyone, I wish I could have come up with a story for this week but sometimes theres just not much going on. I promise next week Ill do better. numbers. Perhaps children can pick up the scent of a roasted marshmallow rather easily, but the boys neighborhood friends joined in laughing and squealing with delight as marshmallows were set ablaze. So I did my best to teach the youngsters how to properly roast a marshmallow. It fell on deaf ears, because apparently watching a marshmallow catch fire is quite the sight. Who was I to argue? The children were having a blast as they darted away from the campfire into the darkness for a game of hide and seek. Soon the kids returned to the tent in an attempt to share scary stories, despite the fact it was more of a contest to see who howl like a werewolf. Shortly afterward the boys friends were called home, a similar reminder of parents stepping into front porches calling for their friends to return home. The boys enthusiasm of a camping trip waned as a long day caught up with them. We doused the campfire, turned off the front porch light and buried ourselves in sleeping bags and dozed off. Well, they did as I watched them snuggle into their bags and drift off, dreaming of a camp out in the woods with lions, tigers and bears, oh my! A short while later as the traffic died down, I climbed into the tent and wrapped myself in the last blanket. As I was awoken by the boys pouncing on me, they asked if I heard the bear growling outside the tent during the night. It was sooooooo loud daddy, they shouted. I just hope the neighbors didnt have their windows open, they might have taken a few shots at the sleeping bear in the tent. Riverland News, Thursday, October 25, 2012 5 000CZUU 12084 S.

It happened to me again this past week for the umpteenth time. The last time it happened, I promised myself it would never happen again, as long as I lived. So much for my promises, or maybe I died. I found myself stranded at the neighborhood grocery store. I meant to put gas in my car, honest I did. Somehow, it slipped my mind. I do not mind things slipping my mind if they are not important, and if it does not involve the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Unfortunately for me, this did. I dont mind lectures from my Beloved, if I could sometimes pick the topic. Topics like religion and politics would be a nice change. Her topic, which she never tires of, is my forgetfulness. At least I cant remember any other topic at the moment. My car was definitely out of gas and I was going nowhere in it. My only recourse was to walk across the street to the store, and call my wife to come and bail me out of trouble. Every husband knows how difficult this is because we have to do it so often. I went to the phone booth in the store and made the call. Then I went and took a seat to wait for her arrival. As I was waiting, I noticed an elderly gentleman come into the store. I call him a gentleman, but these days, who knows? This man walked into the store as if he was concerned about being followed. Every few steps he threw a glance over his shoulder as if someone was stalking him. Since I did not have anything to do for the next 20 minutes, I settled back to watch. When he got into the store, he cautiously walked around the store as if casing it. So many stores are being robbed; I didnt know but this man was planning to pull off a heist. My interest piqued, which kept my mind off the trouble I was in with my wife when she arrived to pick me up. When a person is in trouble, it is always a good thing to try to take ones mind off said trouble, and on someone who might be in more trouble than you are at the moment. At least, thats what I told myself at the time. When a person is facing trouble, he will say anything to himself to calm those jagged nerves. The man walked around6 Riverland News, Thursday, October 25, 2012 Be sure, your sin will find you out OUT TO PASTOR D UNNELLON F IRST U NITED M ETHODIST C HURCH 21501 W. Highway 40 Rev.

As far as I could tell, he was an ordinary man with no special features. He walked with a slow shuffle, but thats to be expected when a mans body ages. I saw him stand over against a corner for several minutes while he intently watched the front door. A little spooked by this time, I did not know if I should alert the manager or call the police. I envisioned the headlines in the newspapers the next day: Local pastor dies a heros death in the crossfire. I sure would like to be a hero, but only in my own mind. This hero business can be a little dangerous, so I was in a quandary. In scanning the gentleman as best I could, I knew he could not have a large weapon on his person. The loose fitting shirt revealed no bomb strapped to his chest, which was a little comforting. Then the gentleman began to move and I froze. My life flashed before me in an instant which bored me almost to death. I never want to experience anything like that ever again. My focus once again went to the gentleman in motion. What was he going to do? Gradually he eased up to the bakery department. I almost stood, but at my height, I would be an easy target. Its hard for anyone to miss a barn door, especially one with a flashy smile. I braced myself for what would happen next. Then it happened. The elderly gentleman, with one last glance over his shoulder, bought a chocolate clair. I was confused relieved but confused. What was all the secrecy about? About this time, I saw him slither toward the bench where I was sitting. Without looking at me, the man sank into the corner as though hiding from someone. He sat there for a few minutes and then he opened his bag with the clair. Just as he took his first bite, someone recognized him, came up and said, Henry, is that a chocolate clair youre eating? He glanced at me and gave me one of those sick smiles that every husband recognizes. No matter how hard you try to keep something (like clairs) from your wife, it is impossible. There is a spiritual lesson here. No matter how hard you try to hide your sin, somewhere, somehow, when you least expect it, someone will see you. An Old Testament scripture lays down an important principle in this regard. But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the Lord: and be sure your sin will find you out. (Numbers 32:23 KJV.) David, the Psalmist, knew this and wrote, Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalm 139:23-24 KJV.) Live your life as though someone was watching you, because, Someone is watching you.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, P.O.

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

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

That is why the three main points in my platform are: Maintaining public safety; Preserving your personal liberty and property rights; And, resisting tyranny. When Congress passed the unconstitutional Brady Bill, requiring every sheriff to do the federal governments job of conducting background checks for gun buyers at their own expense and under threat of imprisonment, Sheriff Richard Mack of Graham County, Ariz., resisted. He won a landmark decision in the U.S. Supreme Court overturning the unconstitutional Brady Bill. Other sheriffs who put the rule of law before establishment pressures have protected their citizens against unconstitutional government seizures of private property. Marion County needs a sheriff who will protect citizens safety, and who will also defend their personal and property rights against government overreach. I am the only candidate who has stated unequivocally that he will refuse to obey an unconstitutional order, and will not confiscate the peoples weapons. I will put the Constitution and the citizens of Marion County first. Recently, the Marion County Sheriffs Office has been rocked with scandals involving sex and security breaches. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the MCSO. How safe is the public if law enforcement officers do not obey the law? As a department outsider, I will clean up the corruption, guarantee public safety and restore honor to the MCSO. Character matters.Bernie DeCastro will square off against Republican Chris Blair in the Nov. 6 General Election.

The passage of a health care bill that 70 percent of our population did not want and still do not want. Of course, AARP supports it. They sell insurance. A president bent on apologizing to the Middle East and the Middle East in flames. An embassy attack and burned and four diplomats killed because of lack of security even though the administration knew the attack was coming. Guns for illegals and Border Guards killed. Lawsuits against states that want to enforce our immigration laws. A reduction in real income for the middle class. A raid on Social Security income under the guise of giving a tax cut. The Democrats embrace the thugs of Wall Street, but deride the genteel tea party. They gave $500,000 retention bonuses to Wall Street, which caused the problem. Sen. Reid wants to see Mr. Romneys tax returns, but wont release his own to show us how he arrived in Washington penniless and is now a multimillionaire. President Obama will not release his scholastic records. President Obama sent billions of stimulus money overseas. The jobs the Democrats claim to have saved are all union jobs that support Democrats financially. There is no energy policy. There is less exploration on public lands today. All the increase is on private land. The Democrats shut out oil from Canada and closed coal mines in West Virginia. President Obama blames the Republican House for his failures. What did he do when he had absolute control of both houses during his first two years? Lie after lie in the Democrats attack ads. The Democrats say Romney is too rich. Well, so was Kennedy and Kerry. Four more years? I think not. Look at the mess Europe is in and they got that way by being too generous, too cavalier about their ability to provide for their people. This all happened when they were not paying for their own defense or United Nations costs. The U.S. is paying this. This mess would occurred sooner. We have a chance to clean up our mess, but we have to be careful in how we vote.Richard P. Mack DunnellonFundraiser for Cops for Kids a successThe 14th annual Jazz Up Dunnellon was hosted by the Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by many fine businesses of Dunnellon. The Dunnellon Police Department had its second annual Bar, which served up two different styles of non-alcoholic drinks. The police departments goal is to promote delicious non-alcoholic drinks to the public and show that you can have a great time without the alcohol. This years fundraiser brought in more than $800. All the proceeds raised will benefit the Cops for Kids program, which is like the Shop with a Cop program. This program will provide a child the opportunity to shop for their family and make this holiday season memorable. The families in need are selected through the schools and provided to our department. Last year, we helped 10 families, and this year we hope to help more. Thank you to our sponsors Greenlight Communications, which sponsored our Dont Drink and Drive LED cups, Sonic for the ice, Circle K for the totes, our volunteers who assisted with setting and breaking down the booth and to the employees for all the ingredients we use to make our refreshing non-alcoholic drinks. We also had recipe books available for free, which provided ways to make awesome party drinks without alcohol. We still have books available at the police department, so come in and pick one up.

DHS ATHLETES OF THE WEEKPRESENTED BY GREENLIGHT DUNNELLON COMMUNICATIONS The Dunnellon High School junior varsity football season has come to an end. The Tigers ended their season Oct. 18 with a bang after traveling to Belleview, bringing home a 36-0 victory. Dunnellon scored on its opening drive, when sophomore Justin Hamm caught the ball for a score for a 6-0 lead. The Tigers still lead 6-0 entering the second quarter, when on a fourth-and-3, sophomore quarterback Chase Brattin handed the ball off to Hamm, who ran in for the touchdown. Sophomore Akeem Coleman brought in the twopoint conversion, giving Dunnellon a 14-0 lead. At the 41-yard line, the Rattlers decided to go for it on a forth-and18 when Hamm intercepted the ball and ran in the touchdown with 1:49 on the clock. The Tigers converted the two-point attempted for 22-0 half-time lead. In the second half, on third-and-14 with the ball on the 47-yard line, Dunnellons Andre Hairston intercepted return for a touchdown as nullified because of a penalty, giving the Tigers the ball at the 35-yard line. Dunnellon, however, couldnt take advantage of the short field position. In the fourth quarter, with the Tigers at the Rattlers 23-yard line, Brattin ran right side for the touchdown on a on third-and-8 with 4:40 remaining in the game. Dunnellon intercepted another errant Belleview pass as sophomore Colby Cranney intercepted the ball at the 23-yard line before pitching it off to freshman Phillip Hitt, who ran down the left side for a 76-yard score. This win was a good way to end the season, said Cranney. We had a good team effort this game and Im proud of the way a lot of the freshman stepped up. DHS JV thumps Belleview Dunnellon High cheerleaders earn national accolades Every summer the Universal Cheerleading Association (UCA) selects a few varsity cheerleaders from each workshop the opportunity to go to London and perform in the London New Years Day Parade with an award called All-American. A week-long trip across the pond sightseeing and doing what they love, cheering, is a cheerleaders dream-come-true. With only 12 percent of America being offered this amazing adventure, Dunnellon High Schools varsity squad was ecstatic when six of their 18 members were chosen this past summer. Four seniors: Brittany Harrod, Jacilyn Indellicati, Shawna Jeroski and Heather Mumm; and two sophomores, Savannah Joiner and Valerie Langley were the lucky six. For all of the seniors, the nomination was a longawaited surprise. Ive wanted it since my ninth-grade year, Jeroski said. I didnt think Id get it because this was my first year trying out (for All-American), but Im extremely excited that I got chosen. Harrod was more surprised than anything to hear Shawna Jeroski One cheerleader raising funds for overseas event Photos by JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsDunnellon tight end Connor Wentz looks for room to run after catching a pass from quarterback Jordon Boley. Wentz had a game-high 64 yards receiving and one touchdown, a 22-yarder late in the quarter against Belleview. DHS keeps playoff hopes alive; critical games on slate LAURA RILEY For the Riverland News The Dunnellon football squad played smothering defense and deployed a balanced offensive assault to handily defeat Belleview 42-10 and improve its District 5A-5 record to 2-1 at Ned Love Field on Friday night. The Tigers (3-4, 2-1) piled up 460 total yards 422 more than the Rattlers (2-5, 0-3) while getting 6-for-8 passing for 82 yards and three TDs and 123 yards and a TD on eight carries from senior dualthreat Jordon Boley. We havent had a drop-back passing game like that in a long time, Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said. Jordons playing at a high level for us right now, and (senior tight end) Connor Wentz, (senior receiver) Andre Jackson and (junior receiver) L.D. Thomas are doing good things for us. Im really proud of our kids, he added. We have good senior leaders and our kids have never come out and had a bad practice. Weve been down, and weve been hurt, but credit our kids and staff with battling through. The Tiger defense, which allowed just three yards in the first half, has held its last two opponents to under 100 total yards combined to get the team right back into the district race after a 1-4 start overall. Our defensive line is pretty salty and our linebackers are starting to play really well too, Beasley said. A kid that doesnt get much recognition for us on defense is (senior end) Dana Washington. He and (junior defensive lineman) Keiwan Jones are a big force down in there. Its tough sledding running against us. Im really pleased with where were at, Beasley added. We just have to continue to ride the wave of momentum. That happens sometimes with 17-year-old kids. Wentz had a gamehigh 64 receiving yards on four receptions, which included a 22yard touchdown late in the second quarter. A 62-yard scoring run by Boley on an option keeper early in the third quarter put Dunnellon ahead 35-0 and forced a running clock for much of the second half. (Tigers offensive coordinator) Tommy Sutton saw some things Belleview was doing schematically that opened up some readoption stuff out of our pistol, and their backside defensive end was coming hard so Jordon read that and kept it and came off the edge and did a good job, Beasley said. Boley credited his offensive lines recently AMANDA BARNEY For the Riverland News DHS varsity volleball finishes winless; JV shocks Belleview for historic win A season filled with dedication, effort and rough times is finally at its end. Long nights on the court have ceased and practice is done for. Sadly, this season wasnt as triumphant as the Dunnellon High School varsity and junior varsity teams had hoped for; however, a tremendous amount of improvement was shown as the season progressed. The Junior Varsity began to win games and the varsity team came closer to winning. Last week was a great week for Junior Varsity coach Dallas Towns and her team. Never before had JV beaten Belleview until last Tuesday when the Lady Tigers broke through for a 23-22, 27-26 and 28-26 victory. The game started out rough, but quickly turned over in Dunnellons favor. Savannah Helton had some tips, Tyra Thomas had a few assists, Kerri Frazier served exceptionally and Rebecca Perpente saved the team from a few opposing kill shots. On the varsity side, the Lady Tigers dropped the match to the Lady Rattlers. Both the varsity and junior varsity lost their matches to Lake Weir. The varsity teams season came to an end with a loss in the opening round of the district tournament.

improved play with a lot of his teams offensive success. Our offensive line is a big key, he said. We stopped sticking our hand in the dirt and getting after people like were known for. Weve started doing that again and its showing. If we can come out and run and throw the ball like that, its hard to stop, he added. The Tigers stay in the district with a game at Crystal River next Friday and a contest with North Marion in two weeks. Were really excited, Beasley said of his teams upcoming matchups. Weve been clamping down on it and not wanting to talk about it, but now its here. Our coaches and players are chomping at the bit to get to those two big rivalry games. We know Crystal River has a great ball team, Beasley continued. Its going to be a physical football game. Those are the kind that we like, so were going to go and see what happens. her name announced. I was not expecting it at all, especially for my name to be the first one called, Harrod explained. Indellicati had been chosen her sophomore year on junior varsity, but getting chosen on varsity, makes it even more important because its at a higher level, Indellicati said. But things dont always work out the way theyre planned. For the sophomores, Langley decided she would rather wait and tryout for All-American her senior year and travel then if she is chosen. Joiner was excited when she got the award but thought the distance was too far of a trip. As for Harrod and Mumm, time was not on their side. Im not going to London because the deadlines were too soon, Harrod explained. Ive always wanted to go, but the fact that I even got chosen to go is enough for me. Mumm, who fundraised for the trip with Harrod, made the executive decision that the experience wouldnt be worth it without her friend. I didnt want to go without Brittany, said Mumm. Indellicati always had hopes of going to London but the timing just wasnt right. Since I just got a car I didnt want to ask my family for $3000 more, Indellicati said. Jeroski, is the long cheerleader chosen form DHS who has decided to take the trip. Ive been holding yardsales (to help fundraise for my trip), Jeroski said. My family has been really supportive and is helping me also. One thing is for sure: the entire squad is proud of what the six girls have accomplished and what theyve been offered. The girls worked very hard at camp and if it had been up to me they could have all gotten All-American, said Suzanne Wallace, varsity cheerleading coach.

Jane Ashman Romeo Principal See ASHMAN page 13 PRINCIPALS OFFICE DHS teacher, students honored at Journalism Workshop The Florida Scholastic Press Association District 2 Fall Workshop Saturday, Oct. 13, at the University of Florida proved to be a a very productive experience, said Julie Mancini, Director for FSPA District 2, only after a minor bump in the road with campus police, when police refused to unlock the classroom doors so the workshop could take place. After a short wait, Wayne Garcia, executive director for FSPA, who works part time at UF, discovered he had a set of keys to unlock the doors. But the whole day was definitely not focused on outfoxing the police. The day moved on to an opening session, where keynote speaker Wayne Garcia spoke about the future of journalism. This was followed by three sessions where the 24 attending students and teachers could attend workshops of their choice and a tour of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for the students. FSPA District 2 encompasses 24 counties: Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Clay, Columbia, Dixie, Duval, Flagler, Gadsden, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lafayette, Leon, Levy, Madison, Marion, Nassau, Putnam, St. Johns, Suwanee, Taylor, Union and Wakulla, but only students from Dunnellon Middle School, Dunnellon High School and Keystone Heights in Clay County attended the workshop.

Students in FSPA member publications are able to compete in various contests, attend the State Convention and earn members-only scholarships.

The workshop was a good experience for everyone who went because it expanded our knowledge in the different areas of journalism, Riley said of her experience at the workshop, During Session 2, Riley and fellow yearbook editor Rachel Horne had Dunnellon High Schools yearbook critiqued by FSPA president Joe Humphrey. He liked the idea of our yearbook and he understood our theme, Horne said. Added Riley, He gave good advice on our yearbook.

16 Riverland News, Thursday, October 25, 2012 Jack OMelon1 round watermelon Melon baller Pen Knife Toothpicks Cut a thin slice from the bottom of watermelon to provide a stable base. Cut circular piece of the rind from the top, big enough to reach into to remove the flesh. Carefully remove that top section and reserve for later to be used as a lid. Remove the flesh from inside the watermelon using melon baller, reserv ing melon balls for snacking or a fruit salad. Once flesh is removed, drain any excess liquid from inside watermelon. Using pen or knife, draw or scratch the out lines of eyes, nose, mouth, hair, ears or any other feature you want on the side of the water melon, using a template as a guide. Then, following the outlines, cut the features into the watermelon and remove excess rind. To create a 3D effect with the features after you have cut them, push gently on the flaps of rind from inside the water melon. (Y ou can use toothpicks to prop the rind, if you want.) A safe, battery-operated lamp can be firmly placed inside the watermelon to provide a haunting glow. Place the circular piece of rind that you reserved back on top of the watermelon and your Jack OMelon is ready to be displayed.Tiki Mask Table Decoration1 oblong seedless watermelon Pencil or green dry erase marker Melon baller Paring and kitchen knives Spoon Channel knife Toothpick Slice 1/4 inch off end of water melon to provide a stable base. Use pencil to draw the face, making adjustments in scale to your particular watermelon. Use melon baller to scoop out nostrils; use small paring knife to clean up edges. Next use paring knife to cut out the inside mouth area, leaving room for the teeth. Next cut individual teeth, using the same small paring knife, and use a spoon to dig out a large area of flesh for the mouth cavity. Next carve out eyes, digging a deep cavity in each, for drama. Use a channel knife to carve details. Use some carved out pieces to cut a bone decoration for top of head, and attach with a toothpick. FAMILY FEATURES his Halloween, why not put a fun twist onpumpkincarvingbymakingsomeJack OMelons? Watermelons carve up bootifully, and you can eat the fruit right away, making it easy to scare up some delicious Halloween fun. This Bat Jack OMelon, Tiki Mask, and Jack OMelon man can add a frightfully fun touch to a Halloween party and the whole family can help carve them. To get more carving ideas and instruc tions, visit www.watermelon.org. Watermelons are a healthy addition to any Halloween party. Theyre the lycopene leader among fresh produce, are an excel lent source of vitamins A and C, and contain 6 percent of the daily value for vitamin B6 all of which boost your immune system. Carving TipsHave the watermelon at room temperature when you carve. The cuts will be easier to make. You can chill the water melon in the refrigerator after cutting and before serving.After youve drawn the design on the rind, insert toothpicks in key places to use as guides for your cuts.Use a sharp knife with a pointed tip the sharper the knife, the easier and cleaner the cuts will be. When attaching cut pieces on the watermelon to make your design, use round toothpicks or skewers. Flat toothpicks will often break due to the weight of the piece or the thickness of the rind.Bat Jack OMelon2 round watermelons, preferably yellow, for the body Kitchen and paring knives Cutting board Green dry-erase marker (preferably washable) Large bowl and spoon Candy corns 4 to 6-inch wooden skewers Toothpicks Candle or light Wash watermelons under cool running water and pat dry. On a cutting board, place the roundest watermelon on its side and cut off 1/4 to 1/2 inch of the stem end, being careful not to cut too deep into the white part of the rind. This will pro vide a sturdy base. Using dry-erase marker, draw two eyes, an oval for a nose and a smiling mouth that would resemble a bat. Draw two ears and an outline of a forehead, continuing the line around to make the top for the bat that will be removed. Use a knife to carefully cut away inside of the eyes, nose and mouth and also around the top of watermelon. Remove top and hollow out watermelon with spoon, reserving fruit to use in a fruit salad or punch. On the second watermelon, use dry-erase marker to draw 2 bat wings (the top of the wings will have 2 points and the bottom of the wings will have 2 points.) Use knife to carefully cut wings out, reserving inside of watermelon to make fruit salad or punch. Attach wings to side of watermelon bat with wooden skewers, and use toothpicks to attach candy-corn as fangs. Insert a candle to light up your bat.

this project, City Manager Lisa Algiere said. This is going to impact them as much as the business owners. This is certainly a vital project for the city. Once the information is collected, Kimley-Horn, Algiere said, will come back with a conceptual plan as well as potential costs. From there, the city will determine how to move forward with the project now that the state is moving forward with its portion to bring the Rails to Trails into the city of Dunnellon. Kimley-Horns tentative plan called for running a multi-use trail along the south side of Pennsylvania Avenue from Blue Run Park and into the Historic District. According to that tentative plan, it would mean officials would eliminate the sidewalk on the south side of East Pennsylvania Avenue and strategically place landscaped medians along the road with a turn lane as well in an effort to calm traffic. Plans also call for streetscaping and standard signage throughout town to promote the newly constructed bicycle trail, and city officials plan to work with state agencies to provide a temporary connection to the Withlacoochee Rails to Trails. That highly popular trail currently runs through Citrus, Hernando and Pasco counties. City officials are hopeful to create a new trailhead at Blue Run Park, which has undergone major renovations throughout the past year to improve parking, as well as a newly constructed tubers exit and canoe/kayak launch ramp. One of the most significant projects in the Explore Dunnellon Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Blueway Plan is a Withlacoochee Trail Extension to extend the trail north into Dunnellon, the report stated. This trail extension involves multiple segments completed over several phases through coordination with multiple entities. The plan, if implemented, calls for the project to be completed in four phases: Phase 1: Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trailhead and Trail : The first segment of the Withlacoochee Trail Extension is the construction of the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trailhead and Trail. The Florida Department of Environmental Protections Office of Greenways and Trails currently has both completed design plans and funding for the Cross Florida Greenway segment that would extend from Citrus County Road 39 to the Dunnellon Sports Complex, the report stated. These plans include a bridge over the Withlacoochee River at the Marion County-Citrus County boundary. This section of the Withlacoochee Trail Extension has received approval from the Florida Department of Transportations Environmental Management Office, and is in the process of being advertised for bids from contractors for construction. Phase 2: Blue Run Park Spur Trail: The initial plan for the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trail included a spur through Blue Run Park to connect to Pennsylvania Avenue. In order to complete the design in time for a deadline to receive federal funds, the spur was removed from the design. Although removed from the initial design, the Blue Run Park spur is a vital connection from the trail to the City of Dunnellon. Providing this connection will allow bicyclists and other trail users to easily access Pennsylvania Avenue and the local businesses along the corridor, and to travel into the city via Pennsylvania Avenue. Phase 3: Withlacoochee Trail Connection Short Term: To provide a connection from the Withlacoochee Trail Gulf Junction Trailhead to the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trail, a short-term connection can be made while a long-term connection can be planned, designed, and constructed. The short-term connection would be made by signing West Magenta Drive from the trailhead to West G Martinelli Boulevard, West G Martinelli Boulevard from West Magenta Drive to North Academy Drive, North Academy Drive from West G Martinelli Boulevard to Denice Point, and Denice Point from North Academy Drive to US 41. Denice Point will need to be paved for approximately 0.4 mile. The intersection of Denice Point and U.S. 41 is across from the intersection of C.R. 39 (W. Withlacoochee Trail) and U.S. 41. This intersection is the location where the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trail project begins. This phase will provide an important connection between the trailhead and the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trail, and ultimately, to the city of Dunnellon via the Blue Run Park Spur at a relatively low cost. Bicyclists currently travel from the Gulf Junction trailhead to the city of Dunnellon by going through privately owned property, the report states. Signing this route as a bicycle route and posting the hours of operation as sunrise to sunset, consistent with the Withlacoochee State Trail, this route can provide a connection from the trailhead to the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trail. The city of Dunnellon should coordinate with the FDEP Office of Greenways and Trails for funding the signage. Because the roads are in Citrus County, additional coordination with Citrus County will be necessary. Phase 4: Withlacoochee Trail Connection Long Term: The planned Dunnellon Trail portion of the Cross Florida Greenway is incongruous with the existing Withlacoochee State Trail. However, if the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trail is extended south along U.S. 41, additional opportunities to connect to the existing Withlacoochee State Trail would be available, the report states. Extending the Cross Florida Greenway Dunnellon Trail south to North Country Club Way could allow for travelers on the Withlacoochee Trail to cross U.S. 41 and travel north into Dunnellon.

the Chambers executive director. Its just a fun, fun, fun time, where everyone can be a kid if they want to be. I just love Halloween, its one of my favorites. Providing a safe venue, too, is important, she said. This makes it so much safer, Leisure said, applauding the business community for providing a safe place for the kids to go Trick or Treating. Its worth the effort. It gets the community and businesses involved to do something for the kids. I just love doing something for the kids. I get such enjoyment out of it, and seeing kids dressing up is just a part of it. Any business interested in being on the map for the Trail of Treaters should call the Chamber at 489-2320.Dark Side of the RainbowRainbow Springs State will host the second annual Dark Side of the Rainbow, a Trail of Terror, from 7 to 10 p.m. Halloween Night, Oct. 31. Zombies, ghosts, witches and pirates invade a trail at the park, while volunteers take you on a fearful adventure. Admission is $2 per person. Children 5 and younger are free. Trails are uneven so wear closed toed shoes. Flashlights will not be permitted on the trail, but costumes and glow sticks are encouraged. Food or drink will not be allowed on the trails, but the concession stand will be open. Last years event drew more than 300 and this years fright-fest promises even more thrills and fun for area residents, said Nicky Aiken, park services specialist. I think were pretty lucky because its dark and its the woods and both can be really scary together, Aiken said. We have all the things that would scare you in the dark and in the woods, so I think that is pretty exciting.. For more information or if you would like to volunteer, call 465-8555 or email Nicky.Aiken@dep. state.fl.us.Haunted HouseThe Rainbow Lakes Volunteer Fire Department will host its third annual Haunted House Event. Come join us for a spooky good time. Take a tour through the haunted house or kick back and play a few games. You can also meet your local volunteer firefighters. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated. The event will be from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday through Sunday, Oct. 26 to 28, 3105 S.W. Ivy Place, inside Rainbow Lakes Estates.Fall FestivalReflections Church will host a Fall Festival from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28, at Citrus Springs Middle School. There will be games, inflatables, crafts, concessions and a candy train. Costumes are welcome, but not necessary.Truth of TreatFirst United Methodist Church will host its inaugural Truth or Treat from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The event will be set up similar to a Trunk or Treat, said Debbie Wright, event co-coordinator, noting children and their parents will be provided with free hot dogs and water. For more information, call the church at 4894026. First United Methodist Church is at 21501 W. State Road 40.Cormier Family Light DisplayThe Cormier family will host its second annual Cormier Family Light Display now through Oct. 31. The graveyard scene is at 19719 S.W. 57th Place in Rainbow Acres. The best viewing time, Mark Cormier said, is after sunset. Thats when the many orange, purple and red lights twinkle and dazzle, he explained. This years centerpiece is a 6-foot tall hanging latex witch thats chained to a flaming caldron. The lights in the yard are set to Halloween music as they illuminate the headstones with shades of orange and purple. Some of the grave markers are lit with strobe lights, blacklights, lasers and fog, which makes them more foreboding, Cormier said. The family turned the remains of a sweet gum tree into a 12-foot monster. It features a custom-molded face and uses the limbs as arms each holding a large can of Monster energy drink. Theres another custom feature in this haunted scene thats not for the faint of heart, Cormier said, noting its a bust of a bald man with a cleaver stuck in his head. Its also illuminated with a blacklight, which make its golfball eyes give off an eerie glow. Cormier noted there are several other ghouls, bats and flying ghosts in this must-see Halloween haunt.

Get on the Internet and check your local state website for sex offenders. http:// offender.fdle.state.fl.us/ offender Make sure that your kids stay away from these houses! Make sure you set a time that your kids should be home by. Make sure they know how important it is for them to be home on time or to call immediately if something happens and they are going to be delayed. If your child is carrying a prop, such as a scythe, butcher knife or a pitchfork, make sure the tips are smooth and flexible enough to not cause injury if fallen on. And check that their costumes wont get in the way when they are walking, which could cause them to trip. Put reflector strips on your childs costume; have them carry a flash light or light stick to make them more visible at night by drivers and you can keep an eye on them as well if they get ahead of you while out trick or treating.
