Donors fill coffers of mayoral hopefuls General Election set for Tuesday One candidate for the Dunnellon City Council mayoral seat has received backing from three developers, two of whom had property recently annexed into the city of Dunnellon and another who recently reached a settlement agreement regarding a Bert Harris lawsuit filed in 2007. The second candidate for the Dunnellon City Council mayoral seat has received most of his campaign contributions from a group of residents whove been engaged in a nearly year-long feud with city officials about their decision to purchase the Rainbow Springs Utility system and tack on a 25 percent surcharge. Additionally, several individuals, including many of the Rainbow Springs residents, are members of Rainbow River Conservation Inc. The environmental group is involved as interveners in the settlement agreement between Jerry Dodd, the developer of the proposed Rainbow River Ranch, and the city. All told, Mayor Fred Ward who is seeking his third term on the City Officials bridging gap on trail It wasnt a surgical procedure which required a deft touch. However, when officials pushed gold-colored shovels into a mound of dirt and sand Thursday afternoon on the bank of the Withlacoochee River, they resuscitated a project long sought by many at the local, county and state levels. This new trail and bridge and the future connection of the Withlacoochee State Trail to the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway will increase recreational value, tourism and economic impact on our state and these local communities, said Donald V. Forgione, Florida Park Service director. It is also a significant piece to unlocking the future of the Heart of Florida loop, a long-term goal to connect trail systems in central JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDonald V. Forgione, Florida Park Service Director, applauds the efforts of officials and volunteers, at a groundbreaking ceremony for a new trail crossing over the Withlacoochee River. A heros welcome TERRY ROBERTS/For the Riverland NewsDunnellon resident Fred Brookshire stands in the foreground of the World War II Monument in Washington, D.C. The Navy veterans trip was part of the final Honor Flight, which flew more than 100 World War II veterans to the nations capital last Thursda y to see the monument erected in their honor. Resident takes part in Honor Flight, sees WWII monument Fred Brookshire doesnt consider himself a hero, even after serving three-plus years in the U.S. Navy during World War II. Simply put, the 85year-old veteran, part of the Worlds Greatest Generation, said hes not, but he was certainly given a heros treatment last Thursday when the Dunnellon resident was one of 100-plus World War II veterans who participated in the annual Honor Flight. The program, which is now in its final year, flew 100-plus veterans, medical professionals and other escorts to Washington, D.C., for the day to tour the World War II monument and other sights in the nations capital. I wasnt one of the guys being shot at, he said, explaining his time in the U.S. Navy from 1944 to 1946 was spent stateside testing torpedoes for the Armed Forces. Like most American men during World War II, Brookshire said he fibbed about his age, enlisting in the Navy at the age of 17. Shortly after completing basic training at Great Lakes and waiting for his regular training school, Navy officials sought out individuals who were mechanically inclined. Brookshire had scored an 85 or better on his mechanical engineering test, so off he went to Maryland, where they put his skills to work. He was more than happy to accept the assignment, having spent six straight weeks on KP. Thats not something you want to do, he explained of KP, laughing about the incident almost 70 years later. If Id have waited another couple of weeks, Id have been able to go to school with my older brother; as it was, I got right out of there. He was shipped to Alexander Naval Torpedo station in Piney Point, Md., where he would help correct problems with torpedoes so they could be used in battle. It was something that needed to be done, he said of his job during the war. I was in diagnostics, finding out what was wrong with them. Id fix them and wed move on. I applied for duty to go to sea. I wanted to get in the action. But because I was doing something right, they didnt send me. I could take (those torpedoes) and reset em and put them back together and theyd go test them. However, Thursdays send off and welcome home at the Ocala Regional Airport, as well as the welcome reception that greeted veterans when they landed in Baltimore, was nothing Brookshire has ever experienced. It was really fantastic, it was unbelievable, he said. It was kind of breathtaking, the way they honored us. So appreciative it was so long ago, I just dont consider myself a hero, I wasnt getting shot at. When we got off the plane in Baltimore, Store evacuated after smoke fills bathroom Shortly before noon Monday, a small electric fire broke out in the back womens bathroom at the Save-A-Lot food store at 11582 N. Williams St. Dunnellon Fire Rescue as well as units from Marion County Fire Rescue were dispatched to the building in Dunnellon Plaza. The structure houses several other businesses, including Ace Hardware and Coaches Pub & Eatery, which are both next door to the discount grocer. Employees and customers were forced to evacuate after smoke filled the bathroom. Dunnellon Fire Chief Joe Campfield said smoke filled the womens bathroom after an electrical problem with the exhaust fan. He explained the extent of the damage was minimal in terms of costs to repair the room, adding smoke and water damage was minor. Campfield said no shoppers were injured when exiting the facility; however, he said one of the two store managers suffered from a small case of smoke inhalation while attempting to douse the blaze with a fire extinguisher. Campfield praised the efforts of the employee. This certainly could have been a lot worse, he said. No other stores were damaged; though enough smoke filtered into Ace Hardware, causing the fire alarm to trip, store employees said. They opened the doors and evacuated customers until fire officials gave them clearance to allow patrons back inside. The store reopened for business later in the day.

Chances are, if you receive Social Security benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or any federal payment, you receive it electronically. More than 90 percent of people getting monthly Social Security benefits already receive electronic payments. If you dont yet, thats about to change. There is a U.S. Department of Treasury rule that does away with paper checks for most federal benefit and non-tax payments by March 1, 2013. With a few exceptions, this mandate includes Social Security, SSI, Veterans Affairs, Railroad Retirement Board, Office of Personnel Management benefits, and other non-tax payments. People required to switch have the option of direct deposit to a bank or credit union account or they can have their monthly payment directed into a Direct Express debit card account (Treasurys debit card program). Please visit www.godirect.org to learn more. So, why the push for electronic payments instead of paper checks received in the mail? Theres a list of reasons an electronic payment is better than an old-fashioned paper check. Its safer: no risk of checks being lost or stolen; Its easy and reliable: no need to wait for the mail or go to the bank to cash a check; It saves taxpayers money: no cost for postage and paper and printing; Treasury estimates this will save taxpayers $1 billion over 10 years; and Its good for the environment: it saves paper and eliminates the need for physical transportation. If you still get your check in the mail, dont wait for the new rule to go into effect next year sign up for electronic payments now. Please visit www.godirect.org today and begin getting your Social Security and SSI payments the safe, easy, reliable way electronically.Questions & AnswersQuestion: Im doing more things online, including shopping and paying bi0lls. What are some things I can do at www.socialsecurity.gov? Answer: Perhaps the most important thing you can do is to take a look at your Social Security Statement, which allows you to check your earnings record and get an estimate of your future benefits. Revisit your Statement annually, around your birthday for example. If youre ready to apply for benefits, you can do that online as well. Applying for Social Security retirement benefits online can take as little as 15 minutes. Once youve submitted your electronic applications, in most cases, youre done! Also online, you can find more than 100 publications with information about Social Security and its programs. Most of these publications are in Spanish, and some of the most popular are available in 14 other languages. You also can estimate your future retirement benefit using our Retirement Estimator, which allows you to get personalized estimates based on different retirement ages and scenarios. The possibilities are endless at www.socialsecurity.gov. Question: I usually get my benefit payment on the third of the month. But what if the third falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday? Will my payment be late? Answer: Just the opposite. Your payment should arrive early. For example, if you usually get your payment on the third of a month, but it falls on a Saturday like it does this November, we will make payments on Friday, November 2. Find more information about the payment schedule for 2012 at www.socialsecurity.gov/pub s/calendar.htm. If you do ever miss a payment, be sure to wait three days before calling to report it missing. Of course, if you get your payments electronically, youll get your payment without having to wait for the mail. Find out more about electronic payments at www.godirect.org.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, November 1, 2012 River views I would like to introduce myself to those who may not know me. My name is Nathan Whitt, and I am a candidate for mayor of Dunnellon, City Council Seat No. 1. I would like to give you some insight into my background, my vision for our community, and the future of Dunnellon. I hope I can earn your vote! I have proudly been a small business owner and a landowner in Dunnellon for 12 years, and have owned my own small business for a total of 18 years. I graduated from Ohio State University in 1994 with a bachelors degree in Environmental Sciences/Watershed Policy and Planning and immediately started my first small business later that year. My wife Deidre and I have been married for 11 years. We have two daughters, Sophia and Alilia, both of whom attend Dunnellon Elementary School and, like every parent, we are very proud of both of them. My position as owner of a local tourism-based business makes me a natural ambassador for Dunnellon. I spend most days talking with visitors and explaining all that this wonderful town and our area has to offer. My staff and I are constantly giving directions to the many restaurants, shops and area attractions throughout our community. We have made many friends in the area and are proud to call Dunnellon home. The decision to run for mayor was not an easy one. I chose to run, with the blessing of my wife, because she and I would like to raise our children and run our business in a friendly, vibrant community. Dunnellon has such potential and for more than a decade Ive worked with city, county and state officials on many projects to benefit our city and our rivers. Our new streetscape project, the hiking/biking bridge, currently under construction, and the improvements in the Historic District all show that we are well on our way to a bright future. These are the types of projects that are important to me and that will help move Dunnellon forward. However, as many of you may know, our city is currently enveloped by an atmosphere of bitterness and division shared by many residents. I recognize the need to end this bitterness and division currently felt by many in Dunnellon and the surrounding communities. I realize the large number of talented folks in our city and in our surrounding area who need a voice and are willing to lend a hand, and I am willing to step up on their behalf. We all deserve to be heard. If elected, I will only be one vote on Council, and I cant promise any quick fixes to the myriad of challenges we currently have in Dunnellon. However, there is one thing I can promise I will be able to do. I will listen. I listen well, and listen I will. It will take all of us to come together for the good of Dunnellon, and I hope that many more folks will become involved in city meetings. If more of us participate, more The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

RIVERLAND NEWS LETTERS TO THE EDITOR GUEST COLUMN THE JERSEY GIRL A former classmate of mine died this week from a heart attack. His name was Timothy Ray and I considered him a friend even though we hadnt seen each other in many years. But once a friend, always a friend. Hearing something like this really stops you in your tracks. It wasnt that we were that close or even that we hung out together that much. Its just that I knew him and went to school with him for eight years. Plus, he was so young, way too young to die. My grandfather died when he was just 58 years old. I was a young girl 7 at the time, and thought he was ancient. Just as Im sure my grandkids probably think I am. But now I know he still had a whole lifetime to live. When somebody dies your mind goes back to all the times you spent with them. I remember Tim as being quite the adventurous type yet always there with a helping hand. He dated one of my friends. I honestly cannot remember anybody not liking him. When we were in middle school, I cheered for the MCYFL football team he played for. That was a long time ago. They were called the Jets back then. I remember he was fearless and one of the best players on the team. We had loads of fun. Tim was born in Ocala and lived here his whole life. He was living in Williston when he died. Im sure many of you know him and his family. I believe his mom, Thelma, still lives here in Dunnellon. Of course, its normal to lose touch after high school, but Im glad Facebook brought us all back together. Wed been chatting back and forth while admiring the pictures of each others families. Its nice to know he was happy. Besides his mom and his brother, Edward, Tim leaves behind his wife of 21 years, four children and a granddaughter. They said he was still hunting and fishing every chance he got. Im glad some things never change. One of the reasons I loved growing up in Dunnellon is because it was such a small town and we all knew each other. My graduating class had 77 kids in it. Not only did we all know each other, but we also knew each others families. If you mention anybody from school we all remember them. I ran into a fellow classmate recently at Wal-Mart and he was really shook up about Timmy. I could tell he wanted to talk about him as he told me story after story of fun times theyd had growing up together. Tim really touched his life and he was grieving. I knew then I needed to write about it. Except for my best friend, Debby Edwards, and another girl, Donna Hamilton, I think weve been lucky not having to deal with other classmates deaths. When something like this happens it affects us all. Nobody knows when our time is up or how long we have and thats why its so important to enjoy it while you can. I know sometimes a friend will call and want to get together and I just dont always feel like going, but you have to make time for people that you care about. We were hoping to plan one more gettogether that would have included Timmy, maybe a dinner or a day at the beach with everyones families. Yet it never happened. Life is so precious. Its scary to think it can all be over at any time. Death always reminds us of our own mortality. I think everybody needs to contact one person that they havent talked to in a while and let them know how much they mean to them. Dont wait until its too late. Rest in peace, Timmy. RIP, Mr. Timmy Ray Whitt: Lets Mend Fences Nathan Whitt I n looking back at my campaign pamphlet promises of the 2007 election, it was gratifying to find that I have fulfilled all campaign promises and then some. Think about the changes one has seen in the administration of the city in the past five years. The result amounts to the simple act of adding value to the city. This creates the perception of surrounding governments that the city is relevant and has become viable entity. I grew up in the late s early s in Ocala/Marion County. Back then Ocala considered Dunnellon pretty much irrelevant to any planning input. When I returned in 2006, I found not much had changed. With the accomplishments of the past five years, that perception has begun to change. I sense an interest and concern to include Dunnellon in regional planning from other government agencies. Dunnellon is earning its political voice and sometimes drives issues of regional impact. This means the city is involved in defining the quality of its future, as opposed to ideally standing by and becoming an uninvolved victim of development all around us. My only political aspiration is to continue improving the prosperity and quality-of-life of our city. Look at the citys record of major accomplishments. This record shows that I have shown proven leadership, and that I am uniquely qualified and committed to adding value. General Administration & Management: Settlement Agreement between RRR, state, and the city to settle Bert Harris lawsuit. Maintaining Service Levels while reducing property taxes by one half millage point, or 6.8 percent. Partnered with the Boys & Girls Club to help them obtain an $834,000 CDBG grant for new construction. Revamp City website to become interactive to enable citizens to retrieve and send info to city. Economic Growth and Development: Installing water/sewer/fiber infrastructure to Dunnellon Airport. Established Greenlight Dunnellon to encourage new businesses to come invest in Dunnellon, from Remote Medical Monitoring for seniors to Small Web Development companies in Historic District. Greenlight commercial contracts with School District and other major businesses. Annexation, Zoning and Boundaries: Annex 1,220-acre McBride Property. Annex 500.8-acre Boger Property. Annex U.S. 41 and County Road 484 to aid law enforcement. In the process of annexation of 9,500 acres properties between the city and the Dunnellon Airport. Police Department: Purchased Police Boat and converted Police Dispatch Software to be compatible with Marion County Sheriff Office dispatch system. New SUV, new ATV to patrol GUEST COLUMN Ward: Added value brings relevance Audrey Beem Local business supports new candidate for mayorI was surprised when a customer brought in to me a Re-Elect Fred Ward leaflet and read its contents. Again, more negative remarks toward the folks of Rainbow Springs, in which I am one, and now the blasphemous remarks towards Nathan Whitts credibility. Is this any way to run a campaign? Nathan Whitt cares about this community and its future. Why else would he seek this position? The residents at Rainbow Springs and other outerlying communities have been very supportive of my shop, as well as other small businesses here. They are vital element to the survival of small business here in Dunnellon. One must agree that when the city chose to install the red-light cameras and then purchase a water system so it could implement a water surcharge for increased profits, certainly it could not have been known the negative impact these decisions would have on the small businesses of Dunnellon. This is why my store must support Nathan Whitt for Mayor.Grant Chance Blue Run BicyclesSheriffs candidate misses point of federal lawsAs with any campaign, the political environment is alive with false statements ranging this year from Romney not paying his taxes to the belief that Obama care will force every citizen to receive a microchip. All of this is quite laughable and now we have Bernie DeCastro candidate for county sheriff stating that the sheriff has the authority to forbid federal agencies from confiscating your businesses, livestock, gardens and guns. A quick fact check will reveal that the county sheriff has the right to protect county citizens from unlawful action by any agents of a federal agency.

Some of these accomplishments took years to bring to fruition; others are still in process of being brought to fruition, which is why I am running for mayor. The job is not done yet. To not seek re-election would be to abandon the pursuit of these hard fought efforts and let down the citizens of the city. In closing, I need your vote and support to continue the pursuit to make Dunnellon an exemplary city that our 1,733 citizen can be proud and others small cities find relevant and want to emulate. In this campaign season, there is a political movement from outside our city to influence the Council to dissolve the police and fire departments into Marion County sheriff and fire departments. Fred R. Ward is seeking re-election to Dunnellon City Council Seat No. 1, the mayoral seat. He faces challenger Nathan R. Whitt in the Nov. 6 General Election. The winner will serve as mayor through 2016. Supervisor of elections didnt show respectI was totally shocked and offended by the Official Sample Ballot received in the mail from Dee Brown, Supervisor of Elections. Under the column President and Vice President, she had the audacity to place Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan before our president, Barrack Obama. I look carefully to see if the contenders might be placed in alphabetical order, but that was not the case. This woman should be removed from her office as Supervisor of Elections. Her title should be Supervisor of Republicans. How dare this woman not respect the office of president. Patricia Hess Dunnellon Editors Note: Dee Brown is retiring after this election. Move ahead or step back with presidential election Early voting is well under way here in Florida and around the nation. If you have been following the presidential election solely through campaign ads, the media and the presidential debates, it may be difficult to determine exactly what your vote will get you. Here is my brief and editorial overview of the election. What was waiting on the Oval Office desk when President Obama took office in January 2009? The nation was already one year into the worst recession since the Great Depression that was enabled by deregulation and corporate greed in our capitalist system. The unemployment rate was 7.2 percent and climbing. Private sector job losses were peaking at the end of 2008. The federal budget already in place when Obama assumed office was in deficit to the tune of $1.8 trillion. The public debt was $11.9 trillion. Unfunded wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were in progress with little indication of when they would end. The tax cuts of 2001 and 2003 were in the midst of their 10-year term. The unfunded wars and the tax cuts were projected to continue to add trillions in deficits to federal budgets over the next 10 years. The presidents successful policies included American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which most economists say avoided a deeper more prolonged recession, provided stimulus funds, tax cuts for the middle class including the Making Work Pay tax credit, an increase in the refundability of the Child Tax Credit and a tax credit for low-income college students. The Health Care Reform law fulfilled a goal that America has been seeking for almost a century to provide health care to all Americans. The December 2010 tax cut deal provided relief to the middle class and poor by extending the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, providing for a 2 percent payroll tax cut, extending the college tax credit, expanding the Earned Income Tax and Child Tax credits and extending unemployment insurance. Key economic indicators have shown a slow, but steady improvement in the economy from the depths of recession the president faced in January 2009. Politifact tracked more than 500 Obama promises and reports that 75 percent of those promises are either accomplished, achieved with compromise or in the works. The presidents economic efforts met with significant resistance from Congressional Republicans, a resistance that kowtowed to Tea Party interests and the Taxpayer Protection Pledge that most Republicans signed. The just say no tactics of Republicans forestalled any compromise on a viable plan to tackle the national debt. The presidents American Jobs Act was rejected. Republican congressional leaders refused to compromise on the presidents proposal to cut $4 trillion from the budget and increase taxes on the wealthiest Americans. Republican leaders in the Senate and House declared that their No. 1 priority was to make President Obama a oneterm president not jobs or the economy. That priority provoked more than 400 Republican minority filibusters in the Senate to block legislation. In the House, the Republican majority passed more than 30 tax bills that were designed only to keep the party in line in an election year. It is no wonder that Congress had historically high disapproval ratings. So what would Romney bring to the party? That would be difficult to say even if you did your homework on his presidential campaign. Romneys policy positions have morphed on many key issues going back to his previous presidential Riverland News, Thursday, November 1, 2012 5 Best of the Best four years in a row HOURS: Mon.

I was off to the airport on another trip. I started out early, arrived at the airport on time but when I arrived the plane had canceled and I had to apply for another plane. The next plane headed for my destination was about two hours away. This would in fact, make me miss my connecting flight. I suppose I ought to be grateful that I was able to catch a later flight. It gave me some time to sit in the airport with nothing to do but think. Talk about a boring afternoon! One of the things I thought about was never flying again. But, necessity is the mother of inconvenience, or something like that. While I was thinking in the airport, I thought of a wise old New AA group to meet at churchLight in Dark Places, a new Alcohols Anonymous (AA) group, will meet at noon Mondays at First Baptist Church of Dunnellon at 20831 Powell Road.

In Pennsylvania she worked for RCA and Rob had a home construction business. The couple and their sons moved to Daytona Beach in 1963. Peg was an assembly line inspector for General Electric. She helped NASA make materials that put a man on the moon in 1969. Rob worked for Wolcott Paper Company as well as building homes in the Volusia County area. He was also well known for his coaching springboard diving at both high school and college level. After vacationing in Robbinsville, N.C., for many years the couple moved there permanently in 2003. Rob continued remodeling his mountain cabin while Peg enjoyed gardening and the wild birds that lived in the area. The couple moved to Dunnellon during the past year to be closer to their son Greg and his wife, Linda. Peg was preceded in death by her brothers, Harry Hilton Jr. of Atlanta Ga., Clifford Hilton of Barnstable, Mass., and her granddaughter, Heather Jamison, Gainesville. Rob is survived by his youngest sister, Phyllis Jamison of Lancaster, Pa.

I know he was wise because he did not include women in his observation. Although time will wait for no man, it has a different approach to women. Usually speaking, a man welcomes the passing of time. Proudly he displays those wrinkles and calluses as marks of manhood. Until recently, gray hair was a crown of authority. Even Solomon, the wisest man said, The hoary (gray) head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness (Proverbs 16:31 KJV). The grayer the head, the wiser the man. Although, I must confess I have seen my share of dumb gray-headed men. A woman, however, has an altogether different philosophy when it comes to time. As a man with gray hair, I do not fully understand their philosophy. I suppose there are some men who would like to be 25 again. Most men, however, are happy to be as old as they are. Women are different. They live upon the concept of ageless beauty. Who am I, as a man, to counter that philosophy? I discovered this many years ago. A woman casually asked me how old I thought she was. I have long since discovered that this is no casual question and she is not looking for exact information. I, at the time, took it as a challenge and tried to guess her age. Wrong! I have since learned that the correct response to this question is, Why, you dont look a day over 25. I do not know exactly what that means, but I have often gotten smiles from this response. No matter how old the woman is, in her mind she is still 25. The man has a different idea. Im 60, he will boast to whoever will listen, and I can still do a whole days work. Then he will go out and throw his back out just to prove it. Time has a different effect upon a man as it does upon a woman. There is nothing wrong with trying to look younger. I suppose it is an easier task to do if you are a woman than if you are a man. Every morning before I leave the house I try to make myself as nonscary to the public as I possibly can. I will scrape my face, pat down my hair, and douse myself with aftershave and in 10 minutes I am done and ready for the world. I have noticed that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage takes a lot longer than 10 minutes to get ready to face the world. I must admit she does a very good job of it, but I also must admit it takes a long time and it seems each year it gets longer. I do not want to call attention to myself. I just want to get through the day and back home again. I know I am not as young as I used to be but I take consolation in the fact that I am older than I used to be. And hand in hand with good old Father Time, I have walked down the wonderful timeline. For me personally, I like to celebrate each birthday as a once-in-alifetime celebration. My goal in life is to get as old as I possibly can and with the good help of Father Time, I am well on my way. Time has not stood still for me, for which I am most thankful. Just like getting to the airport on time for my flight, I want to be on time for everything happening in my life. I do not want to miss a thing. Too often people look backward, stumble over today, find themselves in tomorrow and do not know how they got there. I want to enjoy the time I have in real time. There is no time like the present to enjoy. Memories are wonderful. Aspirations are delightful. But, nothing can take the place of right now. The Bible has a lot to say about time. We are in a timeline established by God and it will not slow down into we come to the end. The apostle Paul understood this when he wrote, And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed (Romans 13:11 KJV). There is no time like the present that as someone said, This is the first day of the rest of my life. I am going to celebrate my Now with all the energy I have. Rev. James L.

history, federal agents have taken possession of several known drug dealers farm properties including horses, vehicles and airplanes. When Marvin Warner, part owner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, was indicted for bank fraud during the home State Savings (Ohio) collapse, the county sheriff did not stop the Treasury Department from laying claim to his collection of race horses and other assets here in Ocala. Nor did the sheriff stop the SEC agents from taking custody of race horses and other assets from Robert Brennan, CEO of First Jersey Securities, and owner of the 600-acre Due Process farm in Reddick. Any sheriff that would block the agents from a federal agency that comes into this county with the legal documents signed by a federal judge to confiscate property will soon find himself contemplating politics from a cell in federal prison. Jan Cross Cubbage Dunnellon Michelle-O-Gram thanks community for supportOctober, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, has been an unbelievable month for the MichelleO-Gram! Friends, family and our community have come together in a huge way to support the cause and support women who are not insured or under-insured. Women who need breast exams may be 20 or 60 years old; however, if they have discovered a lump or something unusual, they need to be tested. That is what the Michelle -O-Gram is all about. The Horizon of Hope Luncheon, our sixth one, hosted by Alma Tankersley, local Longaberger Basket representative, along with donations of designer purses and Longaberger baskets from women in the community generated $6,000. Nothing would have been possible without local support such as Turner House Florist and Jeri Gibbs, Bentlys Restaurant, Don and Janie Parsons, the Repeat Boutique, Kids Repeat Boutique and Dana Adams and Cices Twice as Nice Consignment Shop, Vernon Martin Salon and his staff, Sweetbay Grocery, as well as some of their managers, who donated all of our desserts, Farm Credit, Dori Morgan and Hyatt Farm, Jeff Vermillion, auctioneer, Karen Townsend, Progress Energy and Amy Mangan, Rainbow Springs Golf & Country Club Staff, A-Z Liquor, the Blue Gator, Swampys and all the women who came out to support the Luncheon. Fishing for the Fight, followed the next weekend. Many, many thanks to the GRITS girls (Michelles sister, cousins and girlfriends), Frank Markham and Emery Mills, who cooked and served pulled pork with all the trimmings. Mr. Frank also served as the auctioneer for the Calcutta, cake auction and various other items. Mrs. Janey Markhams cakes were the huge prize winners. The Bag Limit first place went to Stuart Miller, Dane Hobbs and Mitch Bello. Fishing for the Fight honors the fight against both ovarian and breast cancer and is in memory of both Becky Duley and Michelle Blauser Standridge. Many thanks to the GRITS girls, TJS Bait and Tackle and all the folks who fished on a windy day. The First United Methodist Church of Dunnellon recognizes the Michelle -O-Gram as their Mission of the Month in October, and members are asked to donate to a local mission project. The church serves as the bookkeeper, accountant and also as a fundraiser for the Michelle -O-Gram on an annual basis. We so appreciate the church. The Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop made its second donation to the Michelle -O-Gram. The Thrift Shop Ladies work on a daily basis to generate funds that can serve our community. They are a dedicated group of very hard working ladies who do so very much to support local organizations within the community. The two Advanced Imaging Centers, in Marion County, have not only made a large donation to the Michelle -O-Gram previously, but have done so again! On top of that, they sell pink flamingos, hold yard sale events, sell raffle tickets for baskets and support the Michelle-OGram on a regular basis. Wind FM radio and the College of Central Florida (CF) joined forces Oct. 20 to organize a 5K Run/Walk in honor of Hunter, a celebrity radio host, who is currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer. More than 200 folks participated in the Run/Walk. Proceeds will be divided among the Michelle -O-Gram and the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Erika Wiggins, local Salpida jewelry representative, along with the GRITS girls hosted a jewelry party and donated all the cash proceeds to the Michelle -O-Gram. To date, the MichelleO-Gram has assisted nearly 400 women with mammography testing in a little over three years and it is all because of individuals who care and are willing to make a difference in our community. Thanks so much on behalf of so many women in our community.Sherry Roberts, Michelle -O-Gram FoundationChi Zeta card party a roaring successChi Zeta Sorority hosted its Fall Card Party, successfully managed by Jo Bollen with the assistance of many members.

run, attempting to appeal to the conservative base and then attempting to appeal to moderates. Romneys policies have change on privatizing Social Security, health care reform, abortion, womens rights and the bail out of the auto industry. Saying I love teachers is not much of an education policy. Romney severely criticized the presidents foreign policy since the beginning of the campaign. Then he shows up at the presidential foreign policy debate supporting the presidents policies. His lack of foreign policy acumen was demonstrated by his recent embarrassing visits to Great Britain, Poland and Israel, three of our closest allies. The premier issue is his changing tax policy. He advocated tax cuts for the wealthy and the trickle-down of unspecified economic benefits to the middle class and the poor. Recently, he changed course and now advocates across the board tax cuts with the elimination of tax deductions. Romney has failed to identify what tax deductions he would cut, cuts that could be devastating to the middle class. He also cannot explain how he will fund his tax cuts and his proposed increases in defense spending to avoid increasing our national debt. Romney embraces a return to fiscal deregulation that enabled the recession and failed trickle-down economics. This is supremely ironic for a candidate that touts his business experience as an asset to resolving Americas economic problems. Most troubling aspect of Romneys candidacy is embodied in his percent speech. It was not a gaff of one word or one sentence or one paragraph. It was a detailed speech that articulated his view of mainstream America. In part, he said, there are 47 percent, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. And so my job is not to worry about those people. Ill never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. That 47% includes poor and chronically ill seniors, retirees, low income families with children, current and former military veterans and disabled veterans. If you watch the video of these remarks, you will see that Romney just doesnt get it when it comes to the poor and the middle class. A Nobama vote is precipitous. Re-electing the president will impel Congress to finally compromise on a balanced approach to our debt issues and act on our economic problems. Voting for Romney is like voting for a a box of chocolates. You never know what youre gonna get. Your vote for Senate and House candidates is equally important, maybe more important, because most of what the presidential candidates have been talking about will not happen without a capable and motivated Congress. Gerard Meyn Dunnellon Nation needs to reverse its courseThis presidential election is truly offering a clear choice in many areas. The Democratic Party had a major problem over just mentioning God in this context very person to their God given ability. That statement is the only mention of our Creator read the Declaration of Independence that is in the Democratic Party platform. The majority opposition was overruled after three floor votes and God was reinstated by the party leaders as even the political correct party leaders knew this was beyond the pale of good judgment. This goes beyond separation of church and state, it goes to a denial of our spiritual, cultural and historical political heritage. Without the strong belief in a creator, who endowed mankind with God given rights, not rights given by government, we would not be the God blessed, great nation that we are. Immigrants came to this county for religious, economic and political freedom, they are inseparable. The government does not and should not mandate or force a religious doctrine, but clearly it should not be hostile to a belief or mention of our creator. Our nation was based on moral, ethical and religious principles propagated by our Judeo-Christian heritage. To forsake these principles and we become just another nation adrift into the decisions of mortal men with no moral compass. Separation of churches and state was to protect the churches from the state, not the state from the churches. To descend to the level that even the mention of God is wrong is not worthy of any major American political party. Your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions and your actions become your character, which certainly would apply to this issue. To pass a major piece of legislature without the Congress and more importantly the public aware of the facts of the bill, Affordable Health Care Act, is wrong. Whatever the merits of the bill may be, the public, nor Congress did and, does not, really know the true facts, benefits and cost of this major economic changing massive program. Do you as you read this know how it will truly affect you personally? I have researched the subject and honestly do not know how it will affect me personally over the next five years. I do know my mother will not be able to keep her Medicare Advantage plan that she likes. This bill was passed in the dead of night with no clear understanding by the Democratic controlled congress by the narrowest of margins. The majority of Americans did, and still do, oppose Obamacare. This secret passing and no clear explanation of its true cost and content is in direct conflict of the promise of transparent government of the hope and change president. My only hope is there is a change in the presidency. There has been no budget passed by this president since coming into office. For political gain, he has by executive order and bypassing Congress legalized millions of illegal aliens. Social disability rolls are expanding greatly as the regulations have been relaxed. Many months more people qualify for Social Security disability then get jobs. A total of 47 million people on food stamps as again the requirements have been lowered. The Obama administration handling of the Libya terrorist attack on our American consulate is another recent example of the lies and cover up of this morally bankrupt administration. To blame this well planned terrorist attack on a film clip that inflamed a crowd of protesters is being proved as a cover up and lie. The majority of newspapers and news channels have not reported this in depth as is their duties as the fifth estate. This again goes to the lack of a moral and principled government protecting American interest. The non-action, cover up and lies about this event is for political motives only, to get pass the election. As a majority of Americans become more dependent upon the government to provide for them a clear coherent discussion of the issues will recede. If Obama wins re-election, it will be because of many people who want the government to provide for them, to raise and feed their family and to give them a phone to call to make their free medical appointment. As the horse Boxer in Orwells Animal Farm please read it many of us will get tired of working as the fruit of our labors going to others. Producers will either quit or become extinct as the cultural, social and political climate rewards dependent behavior and actions rather than the American work ethic. If you do not think so, look at Greece and France. Where are we headed? When people can vote themselves good out of the public purse democracy fails according to Plato.

He was given $500 each from Sandy McBride, who owns Blue Run Ranches property annexed within the past two years; Otesgo Holdings out of Duluth, Minn., which is owned by Dodd; Greener Lands Development out of Fort Myers, and owns the Secret Promise property, which consists of 9,000plus acres slated for annexation into the city. Ward also received $500 apiece from Ron McAndrew, a former city councilman, whose wife, Lynne, is currently on the council; Robert Taylor from Ocala; and Combined Insurance Services out of Ocala. Whitt, a member of the RRC Board of Directors, had collected $3,403 as of Oct. 4. He has gotten 65 donations, 10 of which have come from members of RRC, including Burt Eno, president of RRC. Altogether, 59 of Whitts campaign contributors, including those who belong to RRC, are Rainbow Springs residents. Altogether, they have contributed $2,780 toward Whitts bid to unseat Ward. The winner of the Nov. 6 General Election will serve as mayor until 2016. there was members from the Army, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard there. There was probably 300 people there, thanking us for saving the world. They lined the whole sidewalk congratulating us. Im not a hero, but when you do what youre supposed to be doing, whatever your bosses tell you to do or God, you do it. Touring Washington, D.C., for the first time since he had been stationed near there in the 1940s was mind-boggling, he added. I didnt recognize anything anymore, only the White House and the Washington Monument. It was really something, seeing the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers, seeing all of the moments including the World War II Monument. We saw the Marine Corps Monument from Iwo Jima, Washington and Lincolns Monument. It was really nice. A lot of people gave speeches. I had not been there (to Washington) since World War II. It was fantastic. Washington holds a special place in Brookshires heart, too. He met his wife, Margaret, there during his Naval career. She worked for the War Department then, he explained, typing up letters for families informing them of a soldiers death, capture or if they were missing in action. It was quite an experience, he explained. They treated us like royalty. I know how the president and the king and queen feel. Ive never been treated like that in my life, it was really fantastic. Brookshire praised those who made the event possible and expressed his heartfelt appreciation to resident Terry Roberts, who served as an escort on the trip. Roberts pushed Brookshire around through most of the monuments and events. I think I overestimated how good of physical condition I was in, Brookshire said with a chuckle. Brookshires career in the Navy was cut short in 1946 when he was given an early discharge. He was supposed to spend two years aboard a submarine, but his wife was pregnant with their first child. He did have two options: go to sea full time or go home. I really wanted to make a career out of it, said Brookshire, who noted his son, Bob, served in Vietnam while three of his grandchildren served in the U.S. Armed Forces, one of whom is a major in the Air Force, while his granddaughter served 18 years. I think of duty when it comes to being in the military, Brookshire said. Its something that needed to be done.

Both of the times he swam were school records for those events: 24.51 for the 50 free and 54.09 for the 100 free. Reilly qualified for the Region 2A-2 Championships. JVon Swoll, Football The senior keyed the Tigers third straight victory with 152 yards rushing and three scores, including a 70-yard touchdown on a kickoff return as Dunnellon knocked off Crystal River, 40-29. This was Swolls second 100-yard game in the past three contests as the Tigers kept themselves in the hunt for a playoff berth. JVon Swoll Thomas Reilly DHS ATHLETES OF THE WEEK PRESENTED BY GREENLIGHT DUNNELLON COMMUNICATIONS Brothers make waves at district Chase and Thomas Reilly have made more than an impact on Bruce Wentz, the Dunnellon High boys swimming coach. The brothers have made an impact in both the classroom and the water for the Tigers swim team. Both Chase, a senior, and Thomas, a sophomore, are in their second year of competing for Dunnellon. Chase needed prodding from Wentz a year ago to join the team after Thomas came out as freshman. The prodding paid off, as Chase consistently improved his times throughout the year, finishing 14th a year ago at the district meet in the 100-yard breaststroke. He has a great work ethic in the pool and in school, Wentz said, noting Chase maintains a 3.71 GPA. Just last week, when I was making practices easy so they were well rested for the district meet, he keep on asking is that all we are doing? His perseverance paid off.

Youths can join the FWC conservation team Even though young people are allowed to hunt and fish in Florida without having to buy a license until they turn 16 years old, a change in the license system now makes it possible for youngsters to voluntarily purchase their licenses early and start contributing today toward conservation. Youths under 16 years of age can now purchase their very first annual freshwater, saltwater or hunting license, which will remain valid until their 17th birthday, no matter how young they are when they buy it. All three types of licenses are $17. Youre never too young to start contributing to our great states hunting and fishing heritage and protecting our wild habitats and resources, said Richard Corbett, a Commissioner with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). And this new ability to purchase a license creates a wonderful opportunity to do just that. Youths under 16 years of age Youngsters can voluntarily purchase trio of licenses early See YOUTHS / Page 19 Tigers sink fading Pirates Photos by JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsDunnellon running back JVon Swoll looks to toss the ball to an official Friday after scoring in the fourth quarter of the Tigers 40-29 victory against Crsytal River. Swoll rushed for 152 yards and had three touchdowns, including a 70-yard kick off return in the second half. Dunnellon to face North Marion with playoff berth at stake CRYSTAL RIVER After bringing home a key district win against Crystal River, 40-29, last Friday at Earl Bramlett Stadium, the Dunnellon High School football team aims for another successful week when long-time rival North Marion comes to town with a playoff berth on the line. The winner will qualify for the Class 5A state playoffs while the loser will play for pride the remainder of the season. We cannot turn the ball over this game and we need to control the line of scrimmage in order to bring in the win. It will be a tough week," Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said about the Colts. However, before the Tigers could focus on their district nemesis, Dunnellon (4-4 overall, 3-1 District 5A-5) had to take care of business at Crystal River. And the Tigers did just that. It was a good back and forth game, Beasley said of the game, which had nine lead changes. We came up strong and played well. After the Pirates staked themselves to a 29-26 in the fourth quarter after senior quarterback Joe LaFleur connected with junior Ty Reynolds for a 15yard score. Dunnellon senior JVon Swoll had the answer, taking the ensuing kick off back for a 70-yard touchdown to take the lead, 33-29, for the final time. Jvonns kickoff return was the best play of the night," said Beasley, about his senior running back who also rushed for 152 yards and two scores against the Pirates. The Pirates, aided by a series of penalties, drove the ball to the Tigers 40-yard line when Dunnellons Chris Jackson intercepted LaFleur on a fourth-and7. His 20-yard return set the Tigers up in Crystal River territory when Swoll slammed the door shut on the Pirates. On first-and-10, Swoll took the hand off from Jordon Boley as Swoll juked and jived his way into the end zone. Williams kicked in the extra point as the Tigers took a 40-29 lead. We played really well and ran the ball, Beasley said. Our defense needs to be a little more consistent, but we had more depth than Crystal River, which allowed us to come back for the win. The first three quarters were just back-and-forth as the final period of action. In the first quarter, on Dunnellon quarterback Jordon Boley looks for room to run against the Crystal River defense during first-half action. Boley rushed for 98 yards and three scores.

will still have to complete the states hunter safety certification before taking advantage of this special license opportunity for hunting. The classes are free. Safety classes arent required for fishing licenses. Another opportunity for youths is the $100 Gold Sportsmans license, which authorizes the holder to take game and freshwater or saltwater fish and provides the deer, management area, archery season, muzzleloading season, crossbow season, turkey, waterfowl, snook and spiny lobster (crawfish) permit privileges. For every year that passes until a youth turns 17, the FWC will receive approximately $7 in matching federal funds, which will be used to preserve and manage the nearly 6 million acres of the states public-hunting, wildlife management area system and the states saltwater and freshwater fisheries. Go to MyFWC.com/HunterSafety to learn when to register a child for a hunter safety class. The new hunting and fishing youth licenses can be purchased at all outlets that sell hunting and fishing licenses, such as county tax collectors offices. They also can be bought online at License.MyFWC.com. The youth license became available Oct. 2 at the same time the FWC launched its new Recreational License Issuance Services (RLIS). Chase qualified in the 100-yard breaststroke, finishing eighth. Thomas had experience in competitive swimming, but was no longer doing it for his club team the Marlins. That all changed for the now sophomore after he narrowly missed out on a regional berth as a freshman, finishing ninth in the 200-yard freestyle. Both spent the summer training in their own various ways; but for Thomas, the narrow miss at the district meet had him back in the pool year-round. It paid off for him as he qualified in two events third in the 50-yard freestyle and fifth in the 100-yard freestyle Friday at the District 2A-4 Championships in Gainesville. Both of the times he swam were school records for those events: 24.51 for the 50 free and 54.09 for the 100 free. He is an incredibly hard worker, Went said about the sophomore who maintains a 4.22 GPA. Even with all his swimming and going to school, in between he maintains that GPA.

The glowing lights and urgent sirens of a fire truck can mean only one thing help is on the way; but many citizens are unaware of why and where their fire rescue service is responding. To help keep Marion County citizens informed, Marion County Fire Rescue has created a live fire rescue scanner, displaying where, when and why MCFR responds to incidents. To view MCFRs live scanner, visit www.marioncountyfl.org/firecalls/Firescan.aspx. The live scanner updates every five minutes with new call information, refreshing the number of emergency crews responding to an incident and their status. Supplementing this resource, MCFR has also listed all the possible incident types that could appear on the scanner, e.g. medical incident, structure fire or traffic crash. Because patient privacy is of the utmost impor-tance, MCFR has grouped all medical emergencies into one incident type and will only release response destinations as cross streets. MCFR in-house staff provide and maintain the live scanner web page. No tax dollars (aside from staff time) have been or will be used to create or maintain the page.

Florida together with trail systems statewide. If I was texting someone, Id type OMG, this place is awesome, he said. This place is fantastic. Im just overwhelmed. We are thankful for the support and engagement from the city of Dunnellon and Marion and Citrus counties and our volunteer partners, who all understand that trails provide a sense of well-being and improve the quality of life for communities. It does more than provide additional economic opportunities, Forgione said. Simply, it gives people more opportunities for additional destinations, he explained. It will give them more to see and do. A chance to enjoy nature. The 280-foot bridge will span the Withlacoochee River. The 12-foot-wide, 3mile-paved trail will feature two trailheads; one in Citrus County and one in Marion County. The construction is made possible with funding from the Florida Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration through a Transportation Enhancement Project and 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant. This project is estimated to be complete by June 2013. This whole thing has a been a process, a long time coming in trying to move forward with the crossroads of the trail here on the Nature Coast and Dunnellon is the crossroads, said Dunnellon Mayor Fred Ward. We really look forward to what the bridge will mean to our community. It is going to put us on the map as far as the Florida Greenways & Trails is concerned and allows the public to enjoy the convergence of the Rainbow and Withlacoochee rivers. Ward added, We are happy to see this project come to fruition. It is pretty significant. A lot of people worked hard to make this happen and we are grateful. This really adds value to the city and gives our community an identity. It gives us something to be proud of and will make people more desirous to come here. Marion County Commissionet Kathy Bryant said connecting the trail in Citrus County and extending it into Marion County is an asset. It gives us an economic benefit, she added. Tom Knipe, a resident of Rainbow Lakes Estates, made an appearance at the groundbreaking ceremony, just to get a glimpse of the plans. So far, so good, he said as he looked over the plans. Its a plus for the whole area. Knipe said hes not a cycling enthusiast. I just thought Id see how were going to put it altogether, he explained. It looks good so far, itll certainly bring business to Dunnellon. Riverland News, Thursday, November 1, 2012 23 Riverland News MONDAY, 2:00 P.M. CLASSIFIED DEADLINE CANCELLATIONS CHARGE IT!!

Donors fill coffers of mayoral hopefuls General Election set for TuesdayOne candidate for the Dunnellon City Council mayoral seat has received backing from three developers, two of whom had property recently annexed into the city of Dunnellon and another who recently reached a settlement agreement regarding a Bert Harris lawsuit filed in 2007. The second candidate for the Dunnellon City Council mayoral seat has received most of his campaign contributions from a group of residents whove been engaged in a nearly year-long feud with city officials about their decision to purchase the Rainbow Springs Utility system and tack on a 25 percent surcharge. Additionally, several individuals, including many of the Rainbow Springs residents, are members of Rainbow River Conservation Inc. The environmental group is involved as interveners in the settlement agreement between Jerry Dodd, the developer of the proposed Rainbow River Ranch, and the city. All told, Mayor Fred Ward who is seeking his third term on the City Officials bridging gap on trail It wasnt a surgical procedure which required a deft touch. However, when officials pushed gold-colored shovels into a mound of dirt and sand Thursday afternoon on the bank of the Withlacoochee River, they resuscitated a project long sought by many at the local, county and state levels. This new trail and bridge and the future connection of the Withlacoochee State Trail to the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway will increase recreational value, tourism and economic impact on our state and these local communities, said Donald V. Forgione, Florida Park Service director. It is also a significant piece to unlocking the future of the Heart of Florida loop, a long-term goal to connect trail systems in central JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDonald V. Forgione, Florida Park Service Director, applauds the efforts of officials and volunteers, at a groundbreaking ceremony for a new trail crossing over the Withlacoochee River. A heros welcome TERRY ROBERTS/For the Riverland NewsDunnellon resident Fred Brookshire stands in the foreground of the World War II Monument in Washington, D.C. The Navy veterans trip was part of the final Honor Flight, which flew more than 100 World War II veterans to the nations capital last Thursday to see the monument erected in their honor. Resident takes part in Honor Flight, sees WWII monument Fred Brookshire doesnt consider himself a hero, even after serving three-plus years in the U.S. Navy during World War II. Simply put, the 85year-old veteran, part of the Worlds Greatest Generation, said hes not, but he was certainly given a heros treatment last Thursday when the Dunnellon resident was one of 100-plus World War II veterans who participated in the annual Honor Flight. The program, which is now in its final year, flew 100-plus veterans, medical professionals and other escorts to Washington, D.C., for the day to tour the World War II monument and other sights in the nations capital. I wasnt one of the guys being shot at, he said, explaining his time in the U.S. Navy from 1944 to 1946 was spent stateside testing torpedoes for the Armed Forces. Like most American men during World War II, Brookshire said he fibbed about his age, enlisting in the Navy at the age of 17. Shortly after completing basic training at Great Lakes and waiting for his regular training school, Navy officials sought out individuals who were mechanically inclined. Brookshire had scored an 85 or better on his mechanical engineering test, so off he went to Maryland, where they put his skills to work. He was more than happy to accept the assignment, having spent six straight weeks on KP. Thats not something you want to do, he explained of KP, laughing about the incident almost 70 years later. If Id have waited another couple of weeks, Id have been able to go to school with my older brother; as it was, I got right out of there. He was shipped to Alexander Naval Torpedo station in Piney Point, Md., where he would help correct problems with torpedoes so they could be used in battle. It was something that needed to be done, he said of his job during the war. I was in diagnostics, finding out what was wrong with them. Id fix them and wed move on. I applied for duty to go to sea. I wanted to get in the action. But because I was doing something right, they didnt send me. I could take (those torpedoes) and reset em and put them back together and theyd go test them. However, Thursdays send off and welcome home at the Ocala Regional Airport, as well as the welcome reception that greeted veterans when they landed in Baltimore, was nothing Brookshire has ever experienced. It was really fantastic, it was unbelievable, he said. It was kind of breathtaking, the way they honored us. So appreciative it was so long ago, I just dont consider myself a hero, I wasnt getting shot at. When we got off the plane in Baltimore, Store evacuated after smoke fills bathroom Shortly before noon Monday, a small electric fire broke out in the back womens bathroom at the Save-A-Lot food store at 11582 N. Williams St. Dunnellon Fire Rescue as well as units from Marion County Fire Rescue were dispatched to the building in Dunnellon Plaza. The structure houses several other businesses, including Ace Hardware and Coaches Pub & Eatery, which are both next door to the discount grocer. Employees and customers were forced to evacuate after smoke filled the bathroom. Dunnellon Fire Chief Joe Campfield said smoke filled the womens bathroom after an electrical problem with the exhaust fan. He explained the extent of the damage was minimal in terms of costs to repair the room, adding smoke and water damage was minor. Campfield said no shoppers were injured when exiting the facility; however, he said one of the two store managers suffered from a small case of smoke inhalation while attempting to douse the blaze with a fire extinguisher. Campfield praised the efforts of the employee. This certainly could have been a lot worse, he said. No other stores were damaged; though enough smoke filtered into Ace Hardware, causing the fire alarm to trip, store employees said. They opened the doors and evacuated customers until fire officials gave them clearance to allow patrons back inside. The store reopened for business later in the day.

Chances are, if you receive Social Security benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or any federal payment, you receive it electronically. More than 90 percent of people getting monthly Social Security benefits already receive electronic payments. If you dont yet, thats about to change. There is a U.S. Department of Treasury rule that does away with paper checks for most federal benefit and non-tax payments by March 1, 2013. With a few exceptions, this mandate includes Social Security, SSI, Veterans Affairs, Railroad Retirement Board, Office of Personnel Management benefits, and other non-tax payments. People required to switch have the option of direct deposit to a bank or credit union account or they can have their monthly payment directed into a Direct Express debit card account (Treasurys debit card program). Please visit www.godirect.org to learn more. So, why the push for electronic payments instead of paper checks received in the mail? Theres a list of reasons an electronic payment is better than an old-fashioned paper check. Its safer: no risk of checks being lost or stolen; Its easy and reliable: no need to wait for the mail or go to the bank to cash a check; It saves taxpayers money: no cost for postage and paper and printing; Treasury estimates this will save taxpayers $1 billion over 10 years; and Its good for the environment: it saves paper and eliminates the need for physical transportation. If you still get your check in the mail, dont wait for the new rule to go into effect next year sign up for electronic payments now. Please visit www.godirect.org today and begin getting your Social Security and SSI payments the safe, easy, reliable way electronically.Questions & AnswersQuestion: Im doing more things online, including shopping and paying bi0lls. What are some things I can do at www.socialsecurity.gov? Answer: Perhaps the most important thing you can do is to take a look at your Social Security Statement, which allows you to check your earnings record and get an estimate of your future benefits. Revisit your Statement annually, around your birthday for example. If youre ready to apply for benefits, you can do that online as well. Applying for Social Security retirement benefits online can take as little as 15 minutes. Once youve submitted your electronic applications, in most cases, youre done! Also online, you can find more than 100 publications with information about Social Security and its programs. Most of these publications are in Spanish, and some of the most popular are available in 14 other languages. You also can estimate your future retirement benefit using our Retirement Estimator, which allows you to get personalized estimates based on different retirement ages and scenarios. The possibilities are endless at www.socialsecurity.gov. Question: I usually get my benefit payment on the third of the month. But what if the third falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday? Will my payment be late? Answer: Just the opposite. Your payment should arrive early. For example, if you usually get your payment on the third of a month, but it falls on a Saturday like it does this November, we will make payments on Friday, November 2. Find more information about the payment schedule for 2012 at www.socialsecurity.gov/pub s/calendar.htm. If you do ever miss a payment, be sure to wait three days before calling to report it missing. Of course, if you get your payments electronically, youll get your payment without having to wait for the mail. Find out more about electronic payments at www.godirect.org.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, November 1, 2012 River views Iwould like to introduce myself to those who may not know me. My name is Nathan Whitt, and I am a candidate for mayor of Dunnellon, City Council Seat No. 1. I would like to give you some insight into my background, my vision for our community, and the future of Dunnellon. I hope I can earn your vote! I have proudly been a small business owner and a landowner in Dunnellon for 12 years, and have owned my own small business for a total of 18 years. I graduated from Ohio State University in 1994 with a bachelors degree in Environmental Sciences/Watershed Policy and Planning and immediately started my first small business later that year. My wife Deidre and I have been married for 11 years. We have two daughters, Sophia and Alilia, both of whom attend Dunnellon Elementary School and, like every parent, we are very proud of both of them. My position as owner of a local tourism-based business makes me a natural ambassador for Dunnellon. I spend most days talking with visitors and explaining all that this wonderful town and our area has to offer. My staff and I are constantly giving directions to the many restaurants, shops and area attractions throughout our community. We have made many friends in the area and are proud to call Dunnellon home. The decision to run for mayor was not an easy one. I chose to run, with the blessing of my wife, because she and I would like to raise our children and run our business in a friendly, vibrant community. Dunnellon has such potential and for more than a decade Ive worked with city, county and state officials on many projects to benefit our city and our rivers. Our new streetscape project, the hiking/biking bridge, currently under construction, and the improvements in the Historic District all show that we are well on our way to a bright future. These are the types of projects that are important to me and that will help move Dunnellon forward. However, as many of you may know, our city is currently enveloped by an atmosphere of bitterness and division shared by many residents. I recognize the need to end this bitterness and division currently felt by many in Dunnellon and the surrounding communities. I realize the large number of talented folks in our city and in our surrounding area who need a voice and are willing to lend a hand, and I am willing to step up on their behalf. We all deserve to be heard. If elected, I will only be one vote on Council, and I cant promise any quick fixes to the myriad of challenges we currently have in Dunnellon. However, there is one thing I can promise I will be able to do. I will listen. I listen well, and listen I will. It will take all of us to come together for the good of Dunnellon, and I hope that many more folks will become involved in city meetings. If more of us participate, more The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

RIVERLAND NEWS LETTERS TO THE EDITOR GUEST COLUMN THE JERSEY GIRL Aformer classmate of mine died this week from a heart attack. His name was Timothy Ray and I considered him a friend even though we hadnt seen each other in many years. But once a friend, always a friend. Hearing something like this really stops you in your tracks. It wasnt that we were that close or even that we hung out together that much. Its just that I knew him and went to school with him for eight years. Plus, he was so young, way too young to die. My grandfather died when he was just 58 years old. I was a young girl 7 at the time, and thought he was ancient. Just as Im sure my grandkids probably think I am. But now I know he still had a whole lifetime to live. When somebody dies your mind goes back to all the times you spent with them. I remember Tim as being quite the adventurous type yet always there with a helping hand. He dated one of my friends. I honestly cannot remember anybody not liking him. When we were in middle school, I cheered for the MCYFL football team he played for. That was a long time ago. They were called the Jets back then. I remember he was fearless and one of the best players on the team. We had loads of fun. Tim was born in Ocala and lived here his whole life. He was living in Williston when he died. Im sure many of you know him and his family. I believe his mom, Thelma, still lives here in Dunnellon. Of course, its normal to lose touch after high school, but Im glad Facebook brought us all back together. Wed been chatting back and forth while admiring the pictures of each others families. Its nice to know he was happy. Besides his mom and his brother, Edward, Tim leaves behind his wife of 21 years, four children and a granddaughter. They said he was still hunting and fishing every chance he got. Im glad some things never change. One of the reasons I loved growing up in Dunnellon is because it was such a small town and we all knew each other. My graduating class had 77 kids in it. Not only did we all know each other, but we also knew each others families. If you mention anybody from school we all remember them. I ran into a fellow classmate recently at Wal-Mart and he was really shook up about Timmy. I could tell he wanted to talk about him as he told me story after story of fun times theyd had growing up together. Tim really touched his life and he was grieving. I knew then I needed to write about it. Except for my best friend, Debby Edwards, and another girl, Donna Hamilton, I think weve been lucky not having to deal with other classmates deaths. When something like this happens it affects us all. Nobody knows when our time is up or how long we have and thats why its so important to enjoy it while you can. I know sometimes a friend will call and want to get together and I just dont always feel like going, but you have to make time for people that you care about. We were hoping to plan one more gettogether that would have included Timmy, maybe a dinner or a day at the beach with everyones families. Yet it never happened. Life is so precious. Its scary to think it can all be over at any time. Death always reminds us of our own mortality. I think everybody needs to contact one person that they havent talked to in a while and let them know how much they mean to them. Dont wait until its too late. Rest in peace, Timmy. RIP, Mr. Timmy Ray Whitt: Lets Mend Fences Nathan Whitt In looking back at my campaign pamphlet promises of the 2007 election, it was gratifying to find that I have fulfilled all campaign promises and then some. Think about the changes one has seen in the administration of the city in the past five years. The result amounts to the simple act of adding value to the city. This creates the perception of surrounding governments that the city is relevant and has become viable entity. I grew up in the late s early s in Ocala/Marion County. Back then Ocala considered Dunnellon pretty much irrelevant to any planning input. When I returned in 2006, I found not much had changed. With the accomplishments of the past five years, that perception has begun to change. I sense an interest and concern to include Dunnellon in regional planning from other government agencies. Dunnellon is earning its political voice and sometimes drives issues of regional impact. This means the city is involved in defining the quality of its future, as opposed to ideally standing by and becoming an uninvolved victim of development all around us. My only political aspiration is to continue improving the prosperity and quality-of-life of our city. Look at the citys record of major accomplishments. This record shows that I have shown proven leadership, and that I am uniquely qualified and committed to adding value. General Administration & Management: Settlement Agreement between RRR, state, and the city to settle Bert Harris lawsuit. Maintaining Service Levels while reducing property taxes by one half millage point, or 6.8 percent. Partnered with the Boys & Girls Club to help them obtain an $834,000 CDBG grant for new construction. Revamp City website to become interactive to enable citizens to retrieve and send info to city. Economic Growth and Development: Installing water/sewer/fiber infrastructure to Dunnellon Airport. Established Greenlight Dunnellon to encourage new businesses to come invest in Dunnellon, from Remote Medical Monitoring for seniors to Small Web Development companies in Historic District. Greenlight commercial contracts with School District and other major businesses. Annexation, Zoning and Boundaries: Annex 1,220-acre McBride Property. Annex 500.8-acre Boger Property. Annex U.S. 41 and County Road 484 to aid law enforcement. In the process of annexation of 9,500 acres properties between the city and the Dunnellon Airport. Police Department: Purchased Police Boat and converted Police Dispatch Software to be compatible with Marion County Sheriff Office dispatch system. New SUV, new ATV to patrol GUEST COLUMN Ward: Added value brings relevance Audrey Beem Local business supports new candidate for mayorI was surprised when a customer brought in to me a Re-Elect Fred Ward leaflet and read its contents. Again, more negative remarks toward the folks of Rainbow Springs, in which I am one, and now the blasphemous remarks towards Nathan Whitts credibility. Is this any way to run a campaign? Nathan Whitt cares about this community and its future. Why else would he seek this position? The residents at Rainbow Springs and other outerlying communities have been very supportive of my shop, as well as other small businesses here. They are vital element to the survival of small business here in Dunnellon. One must agree that when the city chose to install the red-light cameras and then purchase a water system so it could implement a water surcharge for increased profits, certainly it could not have been known the negative impact these decisions would have on the small businesses of Dunnellon. This is why my store must support Nathan Whitt for Mayor.Grant Chance Blue Run BicyclesSheriffs candidate misses point of federal lawsAs with any campaign, the political environment is alive with false statements ranging this year from Romney not paying his taxes to the belief that Obama care will force every citizen to receive a microchip. All of this is quite laughable and now we have Bernie DeCastro candidate for county sheriff stating that the sheriff has the authority to forbid federal agencies from confiscating your businesses, livestock, gardens and guns. A quick fact check will reveal that the county sheriff has the right to protect county citizens from unlawful action by any agents of a federal agency.

difficult areas and resigned existing patrol vehicles. Red-light cameras to calm traffic (have aided police in solving more than 10 crimes.) Fire Department: Purchased state-ofart bunker gear & air packs for all firefighters. Purchased new vehicle for Fire Chief. Code Enforcement: Replaced Code Enforcement Board with a Magistrate for quasi-judicial settlements. Moved Code Enforcement from community development to the police department. Dunnellon Regional Utility (DRU). Online bill paying and conversion to radio read water meters. Purchased RS water/sewer and took ownership of Rio Vista and Juliet Falls to achieve economy of scale. Removal of old unsafe water tower. Completed Phases 2, 3 and 4 of sewer expansion. Engineering inventory of infrastructure to facilitate prioritization and funding of maintenance or expansion projects for future time phased implementation. Planning Commission: As stakeholders in the city, business and property owners are now eligible to serve. Road Improvements: Paved: East Blue Cove, Powell Road, Illinois, Palm and Orlando streets, Second and McKinney Avenue. Environment & Recreation: Purchase of Blue Run Park of Dunnellon and established 10-year management plan. Purchase of 1.4-acre parcel to lease back to Greenway & Trails to complete the connection of their trail. Interconnection of sewer facilities will allow the removal of septic systems along the river. In process of acquiring lease from state for 170 acres for Regional Sports Park and new tuber exit. Community Redevelopment Area: Increased district area by 30 percent, which re-established the district life cycle to 30 years. Leveraged CRA funds to study/approve a Blue/Green (Bike/Pedestrian/Blueway) Trail Master Plan. Standards branding for future: Datesman Park design established standard for Blue Run Park and future improvements. Metal Re-Roof of old library set the new standard for future city facilities. Renamed City Beach to Chaplin A. Dinkins Memorial Beach and introduced new sign standard from Blue/Green Trails plan. Some of these accomplishments took years to bring to fruition; others are still in process of being brought to fruition, which is why I am running for mayor. The job is not done yet. To not seek re-election would be to abandon the pursuit of these hard fought efforts and let down the citizens of the city. In closing, I need your vote and support to continue the pursuit to make Dunnellon an exemplary city that our 1,733 citizen can be proud and others small cities find relevant and want to emulate. In this campaign season, there is a political movement from outside our city to influence the Council to dissolve the police and fire departments into Marion County sheriff and fire departments. Fred R. Ward is seeking re-election to Dunnellon City Council Seat No. 1, the mayoral seat. He faces challenger Nathan R. Whitt in the Nov. 6 General Election. The winner will serve as mayor through 2016. Supervisor of elections didnt show respectI was totally shocked and offended by the Official Sample Ballot received in the mail from Dee Brown, Supervisor of Elections. Under the column President and Vice President, she had the audacity to place Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan before our president, Barrack Obama. I look carefully to see if the contenders might be placed in alphabetical order, but that was not the case. This woman should be removed from her office as Supervisor of Elections. Her title should be Supervisor of Republicans. How dare this woman not respect the office of president.Patricia Hess Dunnellon Editors Note: Dee Brown is retiring after this election.Move ahead or step back with presidential electionEarly voting is well under way here in Florida and around the nation. If you have been following the presidential election solely through campaign ads, the media and the presidential debates, it may be difficult to determine exactly what your vote will get you. Here is my brief and editorial overview of the election. What was waiting on the Oval Office desk when President Obama took office in January 2009? The nation was already one year into the worst recession since the Great Depression that was enabled by deregulation and corporate greed in our capitalist system. The unemployment rate was 7.2 percent and climbing. Private sector job losses were peaking at the end of 2008. The federal budget already in place when Obama assumed office was in deficit to the tune of $1.8 trillion. The public debt was $11.9 trillion. Unfunded wars in Iraq and Afghanistan were in progress with little indication of when they would end. The tax cuts of 2001 and 2003 were in the midst of their 10-year term. The unfunded wars and the tax cuts were projected to continue to add trillions in deficits to federal budgets over the next 10 years. The presidents successful policies included American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which most economists say avoided a deeper more prolonged recession, provided stimulus funds, tax cuts for the middle class including the Making Work Pay tax credit, an increase in the refundability of the Child Tax Credit and a tax credit for low-income college students. The Health Care Reform law fulfilled a goal that America has been seeking for almost a century to provide health care to all Americans. The December 2010 tax cut deal provided relief to the middle class and poor by extending the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, providing for a 2 percent payroll tax cut, extending the college tax credit, expanding the Earned Income Tax and Child Tax credits and extending unemployment insurance. Key economic indicators have shown a slow, but steady improvement in the economy from the depths of recession the president faced in January 2009. Politifact tracked more than 500 Obama promises and reports that 75 percent of those promises are either accomplished, achieved with compromise or in the works. The presidents economic efforts met with significant resistance from Congressional Republicans, a resistance that kowtowed to Tea Party interests and the Taxpayer Protection Pledge that most Republicans signed. The just say no tactics of Republicans forestalled any compromise on a viable plan to tackle the national debt. The presidents American Jobs Act was rejected. Republican congressional leaders refused to compromise on the presidents proposal to cut $4 trillion from the budget and increase taxes on the wealthiest Americans. Republican leaders in the Senate and House declared that their No. 1 priority was to make President Obama a oneterm president not jobs or the economy. That priority provoked more than 400 Republican minority filibusters in the Senate to block legislation. In the House, the Republican majority passed more than 30 tax bills that were designed only to keep the party in line in an election year. It is no wonder that Congress had historically high disapproval ratings. So what would Romney bring to the party? That would be difficult to say even if you did your homework on his presidential campaign. Romneys policy positions have morphed on many key issues going back to his previous presidentialRiverland News, Thursday, November 1, 2012 5 Best of the Best four years in a row HOURS: Mon.

Iwas off to the airport on another trip. I started out early, arrived at the airport on time but when I arrived the plane had canceled and I had to apply for another plane. The next plane headed for my destination was about two hours away. This would in fact, make me miss my connecting flight. I suppose I ought to be grateful that I was able to catch a later flight. It gave me some time to sit in the airport with nothing to do but think. Talk about a boring afternoon! One of the things I thought about was never flying again. But, necessity is the mother of inconvenience, or something like that. While I was thinking in the airport, I thought of a wise old New AA group to meet at churchLight in Dark Places, a new Alcohols Anonymous (AA) group, will meet at noon Mondays at First Baptist Church of Dunnellon at 20831 Powell Road.

Janet Peggy Jamison, 88 Rob Roy Jamison, 90Janet Peggy Jamison, 88, and Rob Roy Jamison, 90, of Robbinsville, N.C., died in Ocala on Oct. 20 and 23, 2012 respectively. They were both born and raised in Lancaster Pa. They married on Sept. 21, 1942 right before Rob shipped overseas to England to serve in the Army Air Corps of WWII. In Pennsylvania she worked for RCA and Rob had a home construction business. The couple and their sons moved to Daytona Beach in 1963. Peg was an assembly line inspector for General Electric. She helped NASA make materials that put a man on the moon in 1969. Rob worked for Wolcott Paper Company as well as building homes in the Volusia County area. He was also well known for his coaching springboard diving at both high school and college level. After vacationing in Robbinsville, N.C., for many years the couple moved there permanently in 2003. Rob continued remodeling his mountain cabin while Peg enjoyed gardening and the wild birds that lived in the area. The couple moved to Dunnellon during the past year to be closer to their son Greg and his wife, Linda. Peg was preceded in death by her brothers, Harry Hilton Jr. of Atlanta Ga., Clifford Hilton of Barnstable, Mass., and her granddaughter, Heather Jamison, Gainesville. Rob is survived by his youngest sister, Phyllis Jamison of Lancaster, Pa. Both are survived by their sons, Rob Roy Jamison II of Havana Fla., and Greg Jamison of Dunnellon (Linda); their grandson, Dr. Tyler Jamison of Jacksonville; three great grandchildren.

I know he was wise because he did not include women in his observation. Although time will wait for no man, it has a different approach to women. Usually speaking, a man welcomes the passing of time. Proudly he displays those wrinkles and calluses as marks of manhood. Until recently, gray hair was a crown of authority. Even Solomon, the wisest man said, The hoary (gray) head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness (Proverbs 16:31 KJV). The grayer the head, the wiser the man. Although, I must confess I have seen my share of dumb gray-headed men. A woman, however, has an altogether different philosophy when it comes to time. As a man with gray hair, I do not fully understand their philosophy. I suppose there are some men who would like to be 25 again. Most men, however, are happy to be as old as they are. Women are different. They live upon the concept of ageless beauty. Who am I, as a man, to counter that philosophy? I discovered this many years ago. A woman casually asked me how old I thought she was. I have long since discovered that this is no casual question and she is not looking for exact information. I, at the time, took it as a challenge and tried to guess her age. Wrong! I have since learned that the correct response to this question is, Why, you dont look a day over 25. I do not know exactly what that means, but I have often gotten smiles from this response. No matter how old the woman is, in her mind she is still 25. The man has a different idea. Im 60, he will boast to whoever will listen, and I can still do a whole days work. Then he will go out and throw his back out just to prove it. Time has a different effect upon a man as it does upon a woman. There is nothing wrong with trying to look younger. I suppose it is an easier task to do if you are a woman than if you are a man. Every morning before I leave the house I try to make myself as nonscary to the public as I possibly can. I will scrape my face, pat down my hair, and douse myself with aftershave and in 10 minutes I am done and ready for the world. I have noticed that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage takes a lot longer than 10 minutes to get ready to face the world. I must admit she does a very good job of it, but I also must admit it takes a long time and it seems each year it gets longer. I do not want to call attention to myself. I just want to get through the day and back home again. I know I am not as young as I used to be but I take consolation in the fact that I am older than I used to be. And hand in hand with good old Father Time, I have walked down the wonderful timeline. For me personally, I like to celebrate each birthday as a once-in-alifetime celebration. My goal in life is to get as old as I possibly can and with the good help of Father Time, I am well on my way. Time has not stood still for me, for which I am most thankful. Just like getting to the airport on time for my flight, I want to be on time for everything happening in my life. I do not want to miss a thing. Too often people look backward, stumble over today, find themselves in tomorrow and do not know how they got there. I want to enjoy the time I have in real time. There is no time like the present to enjoy. Memories are wonderful. Aspirations are delightful. But, nothing can take the place of right now. The Bible has a lot to say about time. We are in a timeline established by God and it will not slow down into we come to the end. The apostle Paul understood this when he wrote, And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed (Romans 13:11 KJV). There is no time like the present that as someone said, This is the first day of the rest of my life. I am going to celebrate my Now with all the energy I have.Rev. James L.

history, federal agents have taken possession of several known drug dealers farm properties including horses, vehicles and airplanes. When Marvin Warner, part owner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, was indicted for bank fraud during the home State Savings (Ohio) collapse, the county sheriff did not stop the Treasury Department from laying claim to his collection of race horses and other assets here in Ocala. Nor did the sheriff stop the SEC agents from taking custody of race horses and other assets from Robert Brennan, CEO of First Jersey Securities, and owner of the 600-acre Due Process farm in Reddick. Any sheriff that would block the agents from a federal agency that comes into this county with the legal documents signed by a federal judge to confiscate property will soon find himself contemplating politics from a cell in federal prison.Jan Cross Cubbage Dunnellon Michelle-O-Gram thanks community for supportOctober, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, has been an unbelievable month for the MichelleO-Gram! Friends, family and our community have come together in a huge way to support the cause and support women who are not insured or under-insured. Women who need breast exams may be 20 or 60 years old; however, if they have discovered a lump or something unusual, they need to be tested. That is what the Michelle-O-Gram is all about. The Horizon of Hope Luncheon, our sixth one, hosted by Alma Tankersley, local Longaberger Basket representative, along with donations of designer purses and Longaberger baskets from women in the community generated $6,000. Nothing would have been possible without local support such as Turner House Florist and Jeri Gibbs, Bentlys Restaurant, Don and Janie Parsons, the Repeat Boutique, Kids Repeat Boutique and Dana Adams and Cices Twice as Nice Consignment Shop, Vernon Martin Salon and his staff, Sweetbay Grocery, as well as some of their managers, who donated all of our desserts, Farm Credit, Dori Morgan and Hyatt Farm, Jeff Vermillion, auctioneer, Karen Townsend, Progress Energy and Amy Mangan, Rainbow Springs Golf & Country Club Staff, A-Z Liquor, the Blue Gator, Swampys and all the women who came out to support the Luncheon. Fishing for the Fight, followed the next weekend. Many, many thanks to the GRITS girls (Michelles sister, cousins and girlfriends), Frank Markham and Emery Mills, who cooked and served pulled pork with all the trimmings. Mr. Frank also served as the auctioneer for the Calcutta, cake auction and various other items. Mrs. Janey Markhams cakes were the huge prize winners. The Bag Limit first place went to Stuart Miller, Dane Hobbs and Mitch Bello. Fishing for the Fight honors the fight against both ovarian and breast cancer and is in memory of both Becky Duley and Michelle Blauser Standridge. Many thanks to the GRITS girls, TJS Bait and Tackle and all the folks who fished on a windy day. The First United Methodist Church of Dunnellon recognizes the Michelle-O-Gram as their Mission of the Month in October, and members are asked to donate to a local mission project. The church serves as the bookkeeper, accountant and also as a fundraiser for the Michelle-O-Gram on an annual basis. We so appreciate the church. The Dunnellon Community Thrift Shop made its second donation to the Michelle-O-Gram. The Thrift Shop Ladies work on a daily basis to generate funds that can serve our community. They are a dedicated group of very hard working ladies who do so very much to support local organizations within the community. The two Advanced Imaging Centers, in Marion County, have not only made a large donation to the Michelle-O-Gram previously, but have done so again! On top of that, they sell pink flamingos, hold yard sale events, sell raffle tickets for baskets and support the Michelle-OGram on a regular basis. Wind FM radio and the College of Central Florida (CF) joined forces Oct. 20 to organize a 5K Run/Walk in honor of Hunter, a celebrity radio host, who is currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer. More than 200 folks participated in the Run/Walk. Proceeds will be divided among the Michelle-O-Gram and the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. Erika Wiggins, local Salpida jewelry representative, along with the GRITS girls hosted a jewelry party and donated all the cash proceeds to the Michelle-O-Gram. To date, the MichelleO-Gram has assisted nearly 400 women with mammography testing in a little over three years and it is all because of individuals who care and are willing to make a difference in our community. Thanks so much on behalf of so many women in our community.Sherry Roberts, Michelle-O-Gram FoundationChi Zeta card party a roaring successChi Zeta Sorority hosted its Fall Card Party, successfully managed by Jo Bollen with the assistance of many members. Sixteen tables of women enjoyed delicious desserts while playing Bridge or Mah Jongg. All proceeds go to help the children of Dunnellon.

Contributions are also made to the Boys & Girls Club, Dunnellon Library Childrens Reading Program, Food-for-Kids backpack program, Rainbow Spring Parks Childrens Educational program, and both Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets for Dunnellon families distributed through the Guardian Ad Litem Program.

In thanking the Thrift Shop volunteers, Wetmore mentioned Dunnellon Fire Department has benefited from years of financial support from the group and reminisced about several firemen painting the interior of the Thrift Shop many years ago when it was sorely needed, showing their appreciation.

run, attempting to appeal to the conservative base and then attempting to appeal to moderates. Romneys policies have change on privatizing Social Security, health care reform, abortion, womens rights and the bail out of the auto industry. Saying I love teachers is not much of an education policy. Romney severely criticized the presidents foreign policy since the beginning of the campaign. Then he shows up at the presidential foreign policy debate supporting the presidents policies. His lack of foreign policy acumen was demonstrated by his recent embarrassing visits to Great Britain, Poland and Israel, three of our closest allies. The premier issue is his changing tax policy. He advocated tax cuts for the wealthy and the trickle-down of unspecified economic benefits to the middle class and the poor. Recently, he changed course and now advocates across the board tax cuts with the elimination of tax deductions. Romney has failed to identify what tax deductions he would cut, cuts that could be devastating to the middle class. He also cannot explain how he will fund his tax cuts and his proposed increases in defense spending to avoid increasing our national debt. Romney embraces a return to fiscal deregulation that enabled the recession and failed trickle-down economics. This is supremely ironic for a candidate that touts his business experience as an asset to resolving Americas economic problems. Most troubling aspect of Romneys candidacy is embodied in his percent speech. It was not a gaff of one word or one sentence or one paragraph. It was a detailed speech that articulated his view of mainstream America. In part, he said, there are 47 percent, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. And so my job is not to worry about those people. Ill never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. That 47% includes poor and chronically ill seniors, retirees, low income families with children, current and former military veterans and disabled veterans. If you watch the video of these remarks, you will see that Romney just doesnt get it when it comes to the poor and the middle class. A Nobama vote is precipitous. Re-electing the president will impel Congress to finally compromise on a balanced approach to our debt issues and act on our economic problems. Voting for Romney is like voting for a a box of chocolates. You never know what youre gonna get. Your vote for Senate and House candidates is equally important, maybe more important, because most of what the presidential candidates have been talking about will not happen without a capable and motivated Congress.Gerard Meyn DunnellonNation needs to reverse its courseThis presidential election is truly offering a clear choice in many areas. The Democratic Party had a major problem over just mentioning God in this context very person to their God given ability. That statement is the only mention of our Creator read the Declaration of Independence that is in the Democratic Party platform. The majority opposition was overruled after three floor votes and God was reinstated by the party leaders as even the political correct party leaders knew this was beyond the pale of good judgment. This goes beyond separation of church and state, it goes to a denial of our spiritual, cultural and historical political heritage. Without the strong belief in a creator, who endowed mankind with God given rights, not rights given by government, we would not be the God blessed, great nation that we are. Immigrants came to this county for religious, economic and political freedom, they are inseparable. The government does not and should not mandate or force a religious doctrine, but clearly it should not be hostile to a belief or mention of our creator. Our nation was based on moral, ethical and religious principles propagated by our Judeo-Christian heritage. To forsake these principles and we become just another nation adrift into the decisions of mortal men with no moral compass. Separation of churches and state was to protect the churches from the state, not the state from the churches. To descend to the level that even the mention of God is wrong is not worthy of any major American political party. Your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions and your actions become your character, which certainly would apply to this issue. To pass a major piece of legislature without the Congress and more importantly the public aware of the facts of the bill, Affordable Health Care Act, is wrong. Whatever the merits of the bill may be, the public, nor Congress did and, does not, really know the true facts, benefits and cost of this major economic changing massive program. Do you as you read this know how it will truly affect you personally? I have researched the subject and honestly do not know how it will affect me personally over the next five years. I do know my mother will not be able to keep her Medicare Advantage plan that she likes. This bill was passed in the dead of night with no clear understanding by the Democratic controlled congress by the narrowest of margins. The majority of Americans did, and still do, oppose Obamacare. This secret passing and no clear explanation of its true cost and content is in direct conflict of the promise of transparent government of the hope and change president. My only hope is there is a change in the presidency. There has been no budget passed by this president since coming into office. For political gain, he has by executive order and bypassing Congress legalized millions of illegal aliens. Social disability rolls are expanding greatly as the regulations have been relaxed. Many months more people qualify for Social Security disability then get jobs. A total of 47 million people on food stamps as again the requirements have been lowered. The Obama administration handling of the Libya terrorist attack on our American consulate is another recent example of the lies and cover up of this morally bankrupt administration. To blame this well planned terrorist attack on a film clip that inflamed a crowd of protesters is being proved as a cover up and lie. The majority of newspapers and news channels have not reported this in depth as is their duties as the fifth estate. This again goes to the lack of a moral and principled government protecting American interest. The non-action, cover up and lies about this event is for political motives only, to get pass the election. As a majority of Americans become more dependent upon the government to provide for them a clear coherent discussion of the issues will recede. If Obama wins re-election, it will be because of many people who want the government to provide for them, to raise and feed their family and to give them a phone to call to make their free medical appointment. As the horse Boxer in Orwells Animal Farm please read it many of us will get tired of working as the fruit of our labors going to others. Producers will either quit or become extinct as the cultural, social and political climate rewards dependent behavior and actions rather than the American work ethic. If you do not think so, look at Greece and France. Where are we headed? When people can vote themselves good out of the public purse democracy fails according to Plato.Steve Swett DunnellonRiverland News, Thursday, November 1, 2012 A11 000CW5L DUNNELLON PODIATRY CENTER, P.A Medical and Surgical Treatment of Foot and Ankle Bunions Hammertoes Fractures Infections Heel Pain Arthroscopic and Endoscopic Procedures Diagnostic Ultrasound and X-ray on Premises Stacy Lynn Witfill D.P.M.

The new school, called Marion e-Learning, offers students in kindergarten through fifth grade the option to enroll in online classes for a custom-tailored education. They work at their own pace, on their own time, in their own space. Regular face-to-face meetings keep students and teachers familiar with each other.

The online experience offers students interactive multi-media content and is available free of charge. Students must have their own computer with Internet access, webcam, microphone, and access to a public library.

This was the final year for the Honor Flight program, which had existed for the past seven years. Among the other festivities Thursday night included local church bands and singers to welcome home the former soldiers.

Council, had raised $3,270 as of Oct. 5. He was given $500 each from Sandy McBride, who owns Blue Run Ranches property annexed within the past two years; Otesgo Holdings out of Duluth, Minn., which is owned by Dodd; Greener Lands Development out of Fort Myers, and owns the Secret Promise property, which consists of 9,000plus acres slated for annexation into the city. Ward also received $500 apiece from Ron McAndrew, a former city councilman, whose wife, Lynne, is currently on the council; Robert Taylor from Ocala; and Combined Insurance Services out of Ocala. Whitt, a member of the RRC Board of Directors, had collected $3,403 as of Oct. 4. He has gotten 65 donations, 10 of which have come from members of RRC, including Burt Eno, president of RRC. Altogether, 59 of Whitts campaign contributors, including those who belong to RRC, are Rainbow Springs residents. Altogether, they have contributed $2,780 toward Whitts bid to unseat Ward. The winner of the Nov. 6 General Election will serve as mayor until 2016. there was members from the Army, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard there. There was probably 300 people there, thanking us for saving the world. They lined the whole sidewalk congratulating us. Im not a hero, but when you do what youre supposed to be doing, whatever your bosses tell you to do or God, you do it. Touring Washington, D.C., for the first time since he had been stationed near there in the 1940s was mind-boggling, he added. I didnt recognize anything anymore, only the White House and the Washington Monument. It was really something, seeing the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers, seeing all of the moments including the World War II Monument. We saw the Marine Corps Monument from Iwo Jima, Washington and Lincolns Monument. It was really nice. A lot of people gave speeches. I had not been there (to Washington) since World War II. It was fantastic. Washington holds a special place in Brookshires heart, too. He met his wife, Margaret, there during his Naval career. She worked for the War Department then, he explained, typing up letters for families informing them of a soldiers death, capture or if they were missing in action. It was quite an experience, he explained. They treated us like royalty. I know how the president and the king and queen feel. Ive never been treated like that in my life, it was really fantastic. Brookshire praised those who made the event possible and expressed his heartfelt appreciation to resident Terry Roberts, who served as an escort on the trip. Roberts pushed Brookshire around through most of the monuments and events. I think I overestimated how good of physical condition I was in, Brookshire said with a chuckle. Brookshires career in the Navy was cut short in 1946 when he was given an early discharge. He was supposed to spend two years aboard a submarine, but his wife was pregnant with their first child. He did have two options: go to sea full time or go home. I really wanted to make a career out of it, said Brookshire, who noted his son, Bob, served in Vietnam while three of his grandchildren served in the U.S. Armed Forces, one of whom is a major in the Air Force, while his granddaughter served 18 years. I think of duty when it comes to being in the military, Brookshire said. Its something that needed to be done.Riverland News, Thursday, November 1, 2012 17 000D32U Cleanmaster CLEANMASTER CARPET & UPHOLSTERY CLEANING Servicing All Of Citrus & Marion County For 25 Years 489-4844 OWNER DOES THE WORK We Also Have Outdoor Pressure Cleaning Available.

Both of the times he swam were school records for those events: 24.51 for the 50 free and 54.09 for the 100 free. Reilly qualified for the Region 2A-2 Championships. JVon Swoll, FootballThe senior keyed the Tigers third straight victory with 152 yards rushing and three scores, including a 70-yard touchdown on a kickoff return as Dunnellon knocked off Crystal River, 40-29. This was Swolls second 100-yard game in the past three contests as the Tigers kept themselves in the hunt for a playoff berth. JVon Swoll Thomas Reilly DHS ATHLETES OF THE WEEKPRESENTED BY GREENLIGHT DUNNELLON COMMUNICATIONS Brothers make waves at district Chase and Thomas Reilly have made more than an impact on Bruce Wentz, the Dunnellon High boys swimming coach. The brothers have made an impact in both the classroom and the water for the Tigers swim team. Both Chase, a senior, and Thomas, a sophomore, are in their second year of competing for Dunnellon. Chase needed prodding from Wentz a year ago to join the team after Thomas came out as freshman. The prodding paid off, as Chase consistently improved his times throughout the year, finishing 14th a year ago at the district meet in the 100-yard breaststroke. He has a great work ethic in the pool and in school, Wentz said, noting Chase maintains a 3.71 GPA. Just last week, when I was making practices easy so they were well rested for the district meet, he keep on asking is that all we are doing? His perseverance paid off.

Youths can join the FWC conservation team Even though young people are allowed to hunt and fish in Florida without having to buy a license until they turn 16 years old, a change in the license system now makes it possible for youngsters to voluntarily purchase their licenses early and start contributing today toward conservation. Youths under 16 years of age can now purchase their very first annual freshwater, saltwater or hunting license, which will remain valid until their 17th birthday, no matter how young they are when they buy it. All three types of licenses are $17. Youre never too young to start contributing to our great states hunting and fishing heritage and protecting our wild habitats and resources, said Richard Corbett, a Commissioner with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). And this new ability to purchase a license creates a wonderful opportunity to do just that. Youths under 16 years of age Youngsters can voluntarily purchase trio of licenses early See YOUTHS / Page 19 Tigers sink fading Pirates Photos by JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsDunnellon running back JVon Swoll looks to toss the ball to an official Friday after scoring in the fourth quarter of the Tigers 40-29 victory against Crsytal River. Swoll rushed for 152 yards and had three touchdowns, including a 70-yard kick off return in the second half. Dunnellon to face North Marion with playoff berth at stake CRYSTAL RIVER After bringing home a key district win against Crystal River, 40-29, last Friday at Earl Bramlett Stadium, the Dunnellon High School football team aims for another successful week when long-time rival North Marion comes to town with a playoff berth on the line. The winner will qualify for the Class 5A state playoffs while the loser will play for pride the remainder of the season. We cannot turn the ball over this game and we need to control the line of scrimmage in order to bring in the win. It will be a tough week," Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley said about the Colts. However, before the Tigers could focus on their district nemesis, Dunnellon (4-4 overall, 3-1 District 5A-5) had to take care of business at Crystal River. And the Tigers did just that. It was a good back and forth game, Beasley said of the game, which had nine lead changes. We came up strong and played well. After the Pirates staked themselves to a 29-26 in the fourth quarter after senior quarterback Joe LaFleur connected with junior Ty Reynolds for a 15yard score. Dunnellon senior JVon Swoll had the answer, taking the ensuing kick off back for a 70-yard touchdown to take the lead, 33-29, for the final time. Jvonns kickoff return was the best play of the night," said Beasley, about his senior running back who also rushed for 152 yards and two scores against the Pirates. The Pirates, aided by a series of penalties, drove the ball to the Tigers 40-yard line when Dunnellons Chris Jackson intercepted LaFleur on a fourth-and7. His 20-yard return set the Tigers up in Crystal River territory when Swoll slammed the door shut on the Pirates. On first-and-10, Swoll took the hand off from Jordon Boley as Swoll juked and jived his way into the end zone. Williams kicked in the extra point as the Tigers took a 40-29 lead. We played really well and ran the ball, Beasley said. Our defense needs to be a little more consistent, but we had more depth than Crystal River, which allowed us to come back for the win. The first three quarters were just back-and-forth as the final period of action. In the first quarter, on Dunnellon quarterback Jordon Boley looks for room to run against the Crystal River defense during first-half action. Boley rushed for 98 yards and three scores.

will still have to complete the states hunter safety certification before taking advantage of this special license opportunity for hunting. The classes are free. Safety classes arent required for fishing licenses. Another opportunity for youths is the $100 Gold Sportsmans license, which authorizes the holder to take game and freshwater or saltwater fish and provides the deer, management area, archery season, muzzleloading season, crossbow season, turkey, waterfowl, snook and spiny lobster (crawfish) permit privileges. For every year that passes until a youth turns 17, the FWC will receive approximately $7 in matching federal funds, which will be used to preserve and manage the nearly 6 million acres of the states public-hunting, wildlife management area system and the states saltwater and freshwater fisheries. Go to MyFWC.com/HunterSafety to learn when to register a child for a hunter safety class. The new hunting and fishing youth licenses can be purchased at all outlets that sell hunting and fishing licenses, such as county tax collectors offices. They also can be bought online at License.MyFWC.com. The youth license became available Oct. 2 at the same time the FWC launched its new Recreational License Issuance Services (RLIS). Chase qualified in the 100-yard breaststroke, finishing eighth. Thomas had experience in competitive swimming, but was no longer doing it for his club team the Marlins. That all changed for the now sophomore after he narrowly missed out on a regional berth as a freshman, finishing ninth in the 200-yard freestyle. Both spent the summer training in their own various ways; but for Thomas, the narrow miss at the district meet had him back in the pool year-round. It paid off for him as he qualified in two events third in the 50-yard freestyle and fifth in the 100-yard freestyle Friday at the District 2A-4 Championships in Gainesville. Both of the times he swam were school records for those events: 24.51 for the 50 free and 54.09 for the 100 free. He is an incredibly hard worker, Went said about the sophomore who maintains a 4.22 GPA. Even with all his swimming and going to school, in between he maintains that GPA.

The glowing lights and urgent sirens of a fire truck can mean only one thing help is on the way; but many citizens are unaware of why and where their fire rescue service is responding. To help keep Marion County citizens informed, Marion County Fire Rescue has created a live fire rescue scanner, displaying where, when and why MCFR responds to incidents. To view MCFRs live scanner, visit www.marioncountyfl.org/firecalls/Firescan.aspx. The live scanner updates every five minutes with new call information, refreshing the number of emergency crews responding to an incident and their status. Supplementing this resource, MCFR has also listed all the possible incident types that could appear on the scanner, e.g. medical incident, structure fire or traffic crash. Because patient privacy is of the utmost impor-tance, MCFR has grouped all medical emergencies into one incident type and will only release response destinations as cross streets. MCFR in-house staff provide and maintain the live scanner web page. No tax dollars (aside from staff time) have been or will be used to create or maintain the page.

Florida together with trail systems statewide. If I was texting someone, Id type OMG, this place is awesome, he said. This place is fantastic. Im just overwhelmed. We are thankful for the support and engagement from the city of Dunnellon and Marion and Citrus counties and our volunteer partners, who all understand that trails provide a sense of well-being and improve the quality of life for communities. It does more than provide additional economic opportunities, Forgione said. Simply, it gives people more opportunities for additional destinations, he explained. It will give them more to see and do. A chance to enjoy nature. The 280-foot bridge will span the Withlacoochee River. The 12-foot-wide, 3mile-paved trail will feature two trailheads; one in Citrus County and one in Marion County. The construction is made possible with funding from the Florida Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration through a Transportation Enhancement Project and 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant. This project is estimated to be complete by June 2013. This whole thing has a been a process, a long time coming in trying to move forward with the crossroads of the trail here on the Nature Coast and Dunnellon is the crossroads, said Dunnellon Mayor Fred Ward. We really look forward to what the bridge will mean to our community. It is going to put us on the map as far as the Florida Greenways & Trails is concerned and allows the public to enjoy the convergence of the Rainbow and Withlacoochee rivers. Ward added, We are happy to see this project come to fruition. It is pretty significant. A lot of people worked hard to make this happen and we are grateful. This really adds value to the city and gives our community an identity. It gives us something to be proud of and will make people more desirous to come here. Marion County Commissionet Kathy Bryant said connecting the trail in Citrus County and extending it into Marion County is an asset. It gives us an economic benefit, she added. Tom Knipe, a resident of Rainbow Lakes Estates, made an appearance at the groundbreaking ceremony, just to get a glimpse of the plans. So far, so good, he said as he looked over the plans. Its a plus for the whole area. Knipe said hes not a cycling enthusiast. I just thought Id see how were going to put it altogether, he explained. It looks good so far, itll certainly bring business to Dunnellon.Riverland News, Thursday, November 1, 2012 23 Riverland NewsMONDAY, 2:00 P.M. CLASSIFIED DEADLINE CANCELLATIONS CHARGE IT!!
