Whitt the new mayor after soundly defeating Ward In a decisive victory, challenger Nathan Whitt soundly defeated incumbent Fred Ward Tuesday night for Seat No. 1, the mayors seat, on the Dunnellon City Council. Whitt, a longtime businessman, won the seat with 62.5 percent of the votes, 535-321. Ward has held the position since 2008, when he was elected to the City Council. He was seeking his third term in office. It was the type of victory we were hoping for, Whitt said of the nearly 2-to-1 margin of victory. Whitt said his first order of business will be to bring a sense of order and peace to the City Council. Its seemed chaotic the past few years, he explained. We want the public to feel welcome, like they have a voice. We are going to listen to what folks have to say. Whitt, who ran his campaign on the promise of mending fences with the public as well as residents of Rainbow Springs said that remains the top priority. Obviously, Im going to have a lot to learn about procedure, said Whitt, who will be sworn in Nov. 13 at Dunnellon City Hall. Most importantly, we have to stop with the name-calling and show everyone who comes in some respect. Everyone deserves to be heard. Ward could not be reached for comment. Nathan Whitt Fred Ward Three arrested for grand theft A 47-year-old Dunnellon man and two Dunnellon teenagers face charges of burglary and grand theft stemming from a burglary Oct. 24, arrest reports from the Dunnellon Police Department stated. According to the reports, Mark J. Ball, 47, his son, Matthew D. Ball, 19, and Codi A. Dollar, 18, face charges of burglary and grand theft while Mark Ball was charged with an additional count of dealing in stolen property after the three allegedly removed numerous power tools from a residence in the 20500 block of Chestnut Street. The report stated Dollar was inside a detached structure and selected 13 various power tools which he gave to Matthew Ball, who was standing in the backyard of a property in the 11800 block of Illinois Street, which is directly behind the address of the property on Chestnut Street. According to the report, both Dollar and Matthew Ball concealed the stolen items in a shed at their residence on Illinois Street. During an initial interview with authorities, both Dollar and Matthew Ball Photos by ALYSSA VELEZ/For the Riverland NewsCity Manager Lisa Algiere, who was recently given rave reviews by the Dunnellon City Council leading to a new three-year contract, reacts to a series of questions asked by the Riverland Newsand a few by students in the Dunnellon High School journalism class. City manager discusses topics regarding citys future The Riverland News continues with its Nine Degrees of Dunnellon. In the first two, the Riverland News and Dunnellon High School journalism teacher Julie Mancini and her journalism students interviewed Mayoral candidates Fred Ward and Nathan Whitt. This time, the Riverland News recently sat down with City Manager Lisa Algiere, who was recently rewarded with a new three-year contract by the Dunnellon City Council. During her tenure, Algiere has leveraged financing for the creation of Greenlight Dunnellon Communications, the citys highly touted fiber-optic system, and purchased the Rio Vista, Rainbow Springs and Juliette Falls utility systems. The city is currently in talks with the state to acquire 170 acres of land near Rio Vista in hopes to build a new sports facility park. Riverland News: Many people feel that eco-tourism should be an intricate part of Dunnellon. Do you feel it is possible to have a hotel or resort on or along the Rainbow River and still be able to protect the river? Algiere: Dunnellon sees more than 200,000 visitors every year on the Rainbow and Withlacoochee rivers. Many of these visitors stay at hotels in Ocala or Crystal River, taking their discretionary dollars with them. We do not have enough hotel rooms to accommodate them in Dunnellon. If they were to lodge overnight in Dunnellon, then our local businesses and overall city would benefit from the economic impact generated by these tourists. Obviously, a resort type hotel would be an asset to our community. A hotel on the river can be developed in an environmentally friendly manner. There are ordinances and regulations in place that protect the rivers and environment when development occurs. Riverland News: The Bicycle Trail has been touted as a potential economic boost to Dunnellon. With that much importance, how is it that so few dollars are being allocated toward its construction? Algiere: The city has prepared a Bicycle/Pedestrian Master Plan. We are in the beginning stages of implementing that plan. In addition, there are trails that are Algiere explains her daily duties as city manager of Dunnellon. She has held the position for more than three years now. Potpourri of new businesses open their doors It might be a sign the economy is improving, as Dunnellon is seeing an influx of new businesses in the past two months. From art galleries to computer repair to a new restaurant, there might be options for everyone. Purple Sage Almost a week after Myriams Restaurant & Grill closed, Purple Sage Caf took its place, opening Nov. 1 and celebrated its grand opening Nov. 4. The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Sandra Highfield, the co-owner and chef, said the restaurant will carry a mixture of international dishes as well as many of Myriams signature dishes, including her Cuban sandwich and soups. Her soups were very popular, Highfield said. Theyre the same recipes. Among the new signature dishes Highfield plans to add to the new menu, which include Thai and Chinese cuisine, and also Panang and Pad Thai Curry as well as several stir-fry dishes with fried rice. They wont be your traditionally spicy dishes, JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsSandra, left, and Crofton Highfield are the owners of Purple Sage Cafe. Dunnellons newest eatery opened its doors last Thursday where Myriams had been.

constructed and main-tained by different agencies that allocate funds as they become available. We coordinate with those agencies in an effort to see the trails developed in a timely manner. One example is the pedestrian bridge that will be constructed across the Withlacoochee River and is expected to be completed by June 2013. All trails lead to Dunnellon, and part of the master plan is to ensure that all trails in the region are connected. Riverland News: Clearly there are competing visions for the future of Dunnellon; how can we bring these two visions together, build consensus and work toward uniting the community to achieve bringing that vision to fruition? The citizens of Dunnellon adopted a Strategic Vision in 2004 that has a vision of a sustainable community with responsible growth and quality of life. Annexations next to the airport lay the foundation for industrial growth that will increase the citys tax base. We have been working with our citizens to improve recreation, aesthetics and pedestrianfriendly areas. We will continue to work with our citizens to implement the Strategic Vision and improve the quality of life in our community. Riverland News: Many business owners in the community, especially those along U.S. 41, feel the medians are a detriment to business. What steps can city officials take to work with the state to have them removed to breathe new life into a key business district and key property tax generator in Dunnellon? After we develop a conceptual streetscaping plan for East Pennsylvania Avenue, we will have a model to show how the rest of the citys business district could look. This plan will be prepared by our engineers and with input from stakeholders in the business corridors. Using this concept, we can then go to the state and ask them to review the need for the medians and look for alternatives. Riverland News: Team Jacob or Team Edward? Algiere: Team Jacob. I have a soft spot for the underdog. Riverland News: The city recently applied for a CDBG grant to construct a water line from the Dunnellon Airport west into Dunnellon Heights to entice businesses. What, if any, businesses are officials currently in talks with? If there are none, why? What types of businesses do you plan to pursue and when? The purpose of the project is to increase water pressure to the Dunnellon Heights area so that fire flows are adequate. An added bonus is that infrastructure will become available to attract businesses. Currently, we are not in discussion with any business to locate in this area, mainly because the grant has yet to be awarded. However, we want to talk to medical clinics, high-tech companies and other businesses that depend on the proximity to an airport and need specialized industrial space in the very near future. City staff is in the process of identifying businesses to approach. Riverland News: There has been much controversy surrounding the redlight cameras in Dunnellon. The contract with American Traffic Solutions is set to expire in the fall of 2013. Do you plan to encourage the City Council to renew the contract? The red-light cameras are serving the purpose of improving public safety. Violations have decreased and as an added bonus, the police department has been able to solve other crimes using the cameras. When the contract is up for renewal, I will present the pros and cons to the city council for their review. It will ultimately be the decision of the City Council regarding the status of the cameras. Riverland News: How do you see the community benefiting from a medical facility? If so, where do you believe such a facility could be located? How might the citys fiber-optic investment be used to fulfill such a need? With the high number of visitors to our area and the nearest emergency clinic more than 20 minutes away, either on State Road 200 or in Citrus County, I believe it is important to have a medical clinic in Dunnellon that can treat minor emergencies. An ideal location would be along County Road 484. Fiber optics is the most reliable way to provide highspeed broadband. As medical technology advances, it becomes more critical to have high-speed broadband to transport data and images. High-speed broadband is the new must-have utility for communities to be competitive in economic development. Not only is it necessary in the medical industry, it is vital for many industries that rely on the Internet in the course of operating their business. Riverland News: How do you feel the Port Citrus project might impact the city of Dunnellon and surrounding area? How should city officials be involved in the project? Port Citrus has the potential to generate jobs regionally. Dunnellon lies between Port Citrus and Ocala, which makes us strategically situated for the port to benefit the local economy. In addition, our fiber optic network will be attractive to many of the companies that could locate in the area. We have been in discussion with Citrus County officials and as they proceed with their feasibility study, we will continue to communicate with them. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, November 8, 2012 000D4CY 000D5U1 Best of the Best four years in a row HOURS: Mon.

The reports stated Mark Ball told authorities he witnessed Dollar hand the stolen items to his son, Matthew. He also stated Dollar was on the victims property handing the items to Matthew over the fence. Both Dollar and Matthew Ball were charged Oct. 25 with burglary and grand theft. According to Marion County Jail records, Dollars bond was set at $4,000. He made bail Oct. 26. Matthew Balls bond was set at $4,000. He made bond Oct. 31. The report stated on Oct. 27, Mark Ball came to the Dunnellon Police Department and advised authorities he needed to clear his mind about stuff. During an audio recorded interview, postMiranda, Mark Ball told Cpl. Bruce Arnold and Officer Mike Miley he had assisted Matthew Ball as he received the stolen items from Dollar as they were passed over a fence. According to the report, Mark Ball told authorities he assisted in moving the stolen property away from the residence. He also said, the report stated, the landlord/ roommate of the defendants observed them removing tools from their residence, and upon asking them who the tools belonged to, the defendants advised him, theyre ours. The report advised he later, at an unknown date, gave away three items, which he knew were stolen, with the intent to get rid of the property and to cover up the crime. According to the report, the value of the power tools taken from the residence on Chestnut Street was estimated at $1,225. According to Marion County Jail records, Mark Ball, who was booked Oct. 29, remains in custody. His bond was set at $3,500 for the charges of burglary and grand theft; no bond was set for the charge of dealing in stolen property.

she explained. Highfield said Purple Sage will also carry freshly baked pastries on a daily basis. She said she hopes to see many of the regulars who frequented Myriams on a daily or weekly basis. Were still going to be the same family-oriented restaurant with a few new dishes for people to try, she said. Purple Sage Caf is at 20359 E. Pennsylvania Ave. Reed Art Gallery Dunnellons newest art gallery celebrated its grand opening Oct. 20 during the 14th annual Jazz Up Dunnellon. Jill Reed, co-owner of the gallery, said she and her husband, Jim, had a soft opening Oct. 19 with a small amount of close friends. It was great, she said, noting Red Fox Gallery owner Jerry Vaughn made an appearance. Weve really gotten to know Jerry well and hes fabulous. He loves what weve done here. She said unlike his gallery, she and her husband dont do the custom framing Vaughn does. Weve had him do some of our stuff, and hes great, she said, praising his work. We are going to certainly encourage our customers to seek him out for frames. He does beautiful work. She said her husband, Jim, has been an artist for a long time, though his professional career was that of a businessman in the South Florida region. She said it was always a long-time dream to open a gallery. Well, maybe it was my dream, she said with smile. The couple moved here in March 2007, having bought a home in Rio Vista. We just love it here, Jill said. We love the river; we bring our family here and they go on the river and they love it too. We just love the community. Reed Art Gallery is at 20709 W. Pennsylvania Ave. It is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 305-505-9895. Bonnies Antiques Bonnies Antiques, a consignment antiques store, opened three weeks ago in the Downtown Dunnellon Historic District. The business, owned by Bonnie and James Burchett, is west of the Annie W. Johnson Thrift Store. James Burchett said his wife has been a small business owner for the past 20 years, starting in Virginia and making her way toward Florida. This is her first antique consignment store shes run. I respect them, Bonnie Burchett said, while setting up a variety of displays in her store. James Burchett said they originally planned to lease the building they are in, but ended up buying it and establishing their newest business venture. We really just love the atmosphere here in town, he explained. We just fell in love with the town and the people. Theyve been great to us thus far. James Burchett said his wife is very selective in what shell consign. If she feels it belongs here, shell let them know, he said. But if it doesnt, shell politely let them know about other options. Bonnies Antiques is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. For more information, call 352-342-9685. Global Computer Support Global Computer Support specializes in computer and smart phone repair as well as offering a variety of cell phone plans without a contract, said Walli Kahn, co-owner of the business that opened two months ago at 20372 E. Pennsylvania Ave., Suite C. Kahn said the business focuses around smart technology, though most of their customers seek them out for computer and smart phone repairs. He said he and his business partner, Omar Ali, are both certified in their line of work and compare their certification to that of an ASA Certified Mechanic. Thats probably the best way to describe it, Kahn said. Global Computer Support is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call 489-6688.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, November 8, 2012 River views I f your disabling condition makes it hard for you to drive or arrange transportation to your local Social Security office, we have some good news. You can complete and submit your application for Social Security disability benefits from your own home computer. Get started at www.socialsecurity.gov/disability. The application process involves determining: Whether you have sufficient work to be eligible for Social Security; The severity of your medical condition; and Your ability to work. Because we carefully review so many cases more than three million each year it can take us three to five months to determine whether you are eligible to receive benefits. The amount of time it takes to make a decision on your application can vary depending on a number of factors, such as: The nature of your disability; How quickly we obtain medical evidence from your doctors, hospitals, or other medical sources; and Whether we need to send you for a medical examination in order to obtain evidence to support your claim. We do a number of things to speed up the process when we can. For example, our Compassionate Allowances initiative allows us to fast-track certain cases of individuals with very severe disabilities such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). There are 165 different types of disabilities that qualify for this expedited decision, and that list continues to expand. Learn more about Compassionate Allowances at www.socialsecurity.gov/compassionateallowances. Another way we speed up decisions is with our Quick Disability Determinations initiative, which uses technology to identify applicants who have the most severe disabilities and allows us to expedite our decisions on those cases. Read more about Quick Disability Determinations at www.socialsecurity.gov/disabilityresearch/qd d.htm. There are things you can do to help speed up the decision process too. The more information you provide up front, the less time it will take us to Divorce makes life more interesting I have never been a person who believes in the unknown. I know this bothers people when I say this but I was born without a faith gene. I am not even ye of little faith, I have no faith. People have a hard time understanding this. My lack of faith sure ticks people off. They want to cure me and show me the way. I can not explain it any other way than to say it is how I came out of the womb. Its just not in me. I cant make myself a 6-foot, blue-eyed blonde, nor can I make myself have faith. Its just not in me. As much as you cant understand that or question me, I do the same about believers. I dont get it. I am the type of person who has to see it to believe it. Therefore, I would not be a person who espouses alien landings. Well, I have become a believer because there is no other explanation for what I am about to tell you. I think an alien has taken over my sister-in-laws brain. She is in love with a dog no, not my brother a real four-legged dog. I have known this woman more than 25 years. She has never been an animal person. Never, ever! I dont know if it is a fear of animals or the grossness of animals (the slobbering, the licking themselves, the barfing then eating it, etc). Maybe it is a combination of all these things, but some people dont like animals. I guess you could say they were born that way. Personally, I think I am one of those people who prefer animals over people. Dogs are always happy to see you. They are often smarter than their owners and they rarely talk back. I am allergic to cats so I cannot tell you the finer points of cat companions. So, I hear what you are saying: Big deal, so she likes a dog. No, you dont get it. This is monumental. The odds of her letting a dog in the house are like the odds of Republicans and Democrats getting along and putting American citizens ahead of politics. If you want to keep it closer to home, its like Penny Fleeger and Burt Eno sitting down for a cup of tea and biscuits. Ah, now, you are getting it! Those things are never going to happen! Therefore, the only explanation can be an alien invasion. It must have happened about nine months ago. This is when McGee showed up on my brothers doorstep. She sat on their front porch and refused to leave. Being a dog person, I was volunteered to be her owner. She was having no part of it. She refused to get in my car. McGee lied down on all fours and wouldnt budge. She picked her home and no one was going to change her mind. I have to admit she is the sweetest dog on this planet. I think she would melt the heart of any non-dog lover. McGee is part German Shepard and part hound. She is a big moose with a rapid fire tail, a loveable clodhopper that is always in the way. Her big floppy ears make her look like she is wearing a matadors cap. She is mildmannered and well behaved. Dont get me wrong, she is not a wonder dog. McGee has one bad habit. She likes to dig holes. She would have made a great combat soldier, because she is the best trench digger on four The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

RIVERLAND NEWS THE OTHER GUY SOCIAL SECURITY TIME TO SMILE JERSEY GIRL I take my voting very seriously. I walked into the Riverland Baptist Church Tuesday, marked all the boxes, dropped it in the ballot box and felt very proud of myself as I do every time I vote. My mother tells me many years ago, they used to pull a handle to vote and you had to step behind a curtain. I didnt even realize some places still use those electronic machines, and who can forget the hanging chad controversy back in 2000? Oh dont worry, this is not another article about politics and Im not even going to tell you who I voted for. Im sure many of you would be surprised. Instead this is a story about the honor of voting. Yes, it is an honor and a privilege. First of all, think of all the people all over the world who cannot vote. Their voices count for nothing and they have no say in what their country is doing. Dont forget women werent always allowed to vote. Neither were African Americans. That seems so crazy now. Then think of all the people who are registered to vote, but just dont get out there and do it. Now that is even sadder if you ask me. Doesnt our country matter to you? At least enough to get your butt out of the chair and take 10 minutes of your time to cast your vote? If you dont want to make the decision of who to vote for then how can you possibly complain when things dont go your way? Oh yes, I take it very seriously. I study about all the candidates, who they are and what they stand for. I even study every single one of the amendments before voting. If I dont understand them, I go onto the Internet and search for websites where they explain them in normal language. After all, I dont want to say yes, when what I really meant was no. Sometimes its really tricky because if you say no, youre really not saying no, you are actually saying yes I dont want this to change. Or no I do want this to change. So we have to be really careful when choosing our answers on these amendments. Oh, I admit there have been a few times when I really had no idea who the people were who were running and so I chose them by name. Yep, I chose the one whose name I liked the best. I know it sounds silly, but your name can say a lot about you. Thank goodness there are not many of those that I havent done my homework about already. So now its over, and we can all breathe a sigh of relief that those annoying commercials are over. I hear a big YAH. As I write this, I have no idea what the outcome for President of the United States is going to be. I know some people are happy, some are not. I just wish the Vote now or forever hold your peace F or two-plus years now, Ive always allowed you, the readers, into my personal life. Ive written about triumphs and tragedies, the good times and the bad. This happens to be one of the bad times. My wife and I, after seven years of marriage and three children together, have decided its best to part ways. No one here is at fault; weve both drifted our own ways in the past few years. Now we face the daunting task millions of others nationwide face, raising children as single parents. Tabetha has the benefit of a large extended family to back her because they are local and nearby. I, on the other hand, have the support of my family, most of whom are more than a 1,000 miles away. Most of my friends are hundreds if not thousands of miles away, yet todays technology of text messages, email, Facebook and Skype allows me to stay in close contact with my friends whove offered plenty of support and places to get away from it all. Certainly, I would have never fathomed this scenario when we said I Do til death do us part. The death might have come soon, constant fighting and bickering among each of us, interference from family members and friends became more consistent. Deep down, perhaps we both knew sometime ago this was inevitable. She just happened to make the initial move. A Dear Jeff letter I stumbled upon shortly after our anniversary in June was all the proof I needed to know her indications. However, for the next 18 years we will have to put all of our bitterness and petty feelings aside for the betterment of our children. Yet, while life will go on for our children, changes in life were immediate for both of us. Shes back to work and has moved out. Were sharing custody of our children, but unlike the past when officials called it joint custody, some wise officials decided to label it time sharing. Funny, I always considered time sharing a vacation rental, not children. I no longer have the opportunity to hear the shouts of daddy and feet storming for the door, which sounds more like a stampede, when I arrive home from work. For Jackson and Jayden, they seem to be handling it as well as 5and 4-year-old boys can.

she will grow accustomed to the lifestyle. So my friends in town, if Ive seemed or still seem off-kilter a bit in the days, weeks and months ahead, I ask for your patience. I certainly plan on giving the readers of the Riverland News my best efforts as Ive always attempted to do in the past two years. I could be bitter, but I wont be. I wish Tabetha the best of luck in the coming years. I hope she finds happiness and joy. I, on the other hand, will bounce back. Im sure with time, the wounds will heal. Im certain that one day, Ill meet a woman in this universe who will melt my heart, give me chills and love me unconditionally for all of my faults and show me grace and wisdom beyond her years and probably mine, too. obtain the evidence we need and the faster we can process your application.

SSI is a needsbased program for people 65 or older, blind, or disabled who have limited income and resources. We consider your inheritance as income for the month you received it. Accordingly, we may have to adjust your benefit for that month. If you keep the money into the next month, the money then becomes a part of your resources. A person with more than $2,000 or a couple with more than $3000 in total resources cannot receive SSI, although there are exceptions.

But I think theres a slim chance of that ever happening. So if you voted for the winner, congratulations. If you didnt, well I hope things will work out the way you want them to. As we all have witnessed in the past, most decisions are made by Congress and the president has little say anyway. If you didnt care enough to vote, all I can say is shame on you. Your country and what it stands for should be enough to make you want to take a stand. With the opponents being total opposites this time I hope you took the time to cast your vote and decide whats important. A lot rides on the outcome. God Bless America.

Chicas captures second district crown It was by the narrowest of margins that Victor Chicas was able to win the top spot in the district cross country race, but it wasnt because of his running. Chicas was engrossed in the lesson in his science class and completely lost track of time. When he finally did look up at the clock, all of the other runners were already on their way to The Villages for the district meet, and Chicas had no ride. We were just in the middle of AP Physics class when (Victor) looks up at me and says, Uh oh said Robert Ayton, science teacher. He then ran out of my class, in his warm-ups, and I instantly remembered that he forgot the meet. Since the cross country team is not very large, they do not secure a bus to ride to their meets. Each athlete is responsible for getting his or her own ride or letting the coach know that they need to ride in the school van. The mix-up occurred because the other runners did not know that Chicas was still at school. Thats when Assistant Principal Debbie Love stepped in and drove Chicas to the Polo Grounds at the Villages. Chicas arrived with just minutes to spare before his race. Chicas ran a 17:40 for the Victor Chicas Youth fishing licenses available Youths can join conservation team for state 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 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 Its manatee season again Editors note: This article is the first of a three-part series pertaining to manatees and manatee season. Its that time of the year again when Citrus Countys manatee population draws an audience from visitors hailing from all parts of the globe, with people taking part in guided and self-guided excursions to Three Sisters Springs and other area hot spots. On Tuesday, unofficial counts indicated 86 manatees were already in the area and on Wednesday morning a huge concentration was sighted in Three Sisters Springs. I counted 62 manatees in Three Sisters, said Ivan Vicente, visitor services specialist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. This means that there probably is over 150 manatees in Kings Bay from this cold front that came in.

With a playoff spot at stake, Dunnellon High School had to go through its long-time rival, North Marion, Friday at Ned Love Field. Unfortunately, the Tigers got bucked off by the Colts, 24-7, putting an end to Dunnellons bid for a playoff spot, the second straight year the Tigers will miss the postseason. With the victory, North Marion will advance to the Class 5A playoffs. We had a great week of practice last week, we just did not execute during the game even though we played well, said Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley, whose team dropped to 4-5 overall and 3-2 in District 5A-5 and had its four-game winning streak snapped. After turning the ball over on its first possession, Dunnellons LJ Brown made a key interception on a Colts convert a fourth-down attempt, giving the Tigers the ball at their own 35-yard line. Dunnellon marched its way into Colts territory. Inside the 5-yard line, quarterback Jordan Boley pushed through the middle for the touchdown as Shane Williams added the extra point, giving the Tigers a 7-0 lead with 11:54 remaining in the second quarter. North Marion responded quickly to Dunnellons touchdown with a scoring drive of its own. After making their way down the field, the Colts Reggie Wilkerson scored on a third-andlong as David Hatcher added the extra point, leaving the score at 7alll with 8:55 left in the opening half. After each team traded possessions, the tables turned in favor of North Marion when Hatcher booted a 25yard field goal on fourth-and-long, giving the Colts a 10-7 lead at the half. Looking to rally in the third quarter, senior defensive back Chris Jackson picked off an errant Colts pass, setting the Tigers offense near midfield. Beasley credited the play of his teams defensive backs Chris Jackson, L.J Brown and Gabe Saathoff against the Colts. They did well, Beasley added. However, Dunnellon couldnt capitalize on the turnover, as North Marion intercepted the ball, setting up another scoring drive.

Cecelia is survived by her five children, MarilyAnne, William, John, Patricia, Elaine, plus seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. The family settled in Lake Forest, Ill., in 1960 where the children grew up. Cecelia was a member of The Church of the Holy Spirit in L.F., and was an avid golfer, gardener and sailor. At the age of 50 she took up riding again. In 1973, her first husband, William Middleton unexpectedly died. After a period of grieving, Tiny was blessed to find Thomas Hunter Jr., a recent widower, while on a cruise. They found mutual interests, married, and had the most marvelous 14 years together. It was while married to Tom that Tiny renewed her interests in competitive horse showing. She competed nationally in Dressage and Hunter Classes and was a well-known equestrian at AHSA horseshows on the East Coast because of her age and accomplishments. In 1995, at the age of 74, she and her horse, Tinys Time, won the 1st Year Green Working Hunter Championship at the National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden in New York City, one of over 100 ribbons and trophies in her collection. Cecelia and Tom traveled extensively until his passing. Cecelia moved to Rainbow Springs in 2009 to enjoy the Florida weather. She was petite, (hence her nickname Tiny) energetic, interested in everyone she met and enjoyed an active, wonderful, full life. A memorial service is scheduled for 5 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2012 at the Roberts Funeral Home, Dunnellon with visitation scheduled 4 to 5 p.m. She will be inurned in the family mausoleum at Rivers Bend Cemetery, Westerly, Rhode Island later this fall.

County sponsoring event open to students Special to the Riverland News Technology is key to the future, so are the youths of today. So when the decision was made to upgrade the aging, antiquated computers at Dunnellon Christian Academy, school officials set about the task with a sense of urgency. "With technology changing so rapidly, it is important to stay as current as possible," said Principal Kristy Nelson said, noting the school had been upgrading technology in the classroom by purchasing interactive smart boards for each room. "It was time to follow suit by purchasing these new computers for the lab. The old ones were over ten years old." Because DCA is a small school and not supported by taxpayer dollars, fundraisers played an integral part in coming up with necessary funding to purchase new state of the art computers. "Due to the generocity of the community, school families and church families, we were able to raise the funds to cover the cost of the computer lab last year," Nelson said, explaining proceeds from the school's two major fundraisers -Abundant Funds and the DCA Auction -as well as a private fundraiser to make the necessary purchases. "None of our school improvements could be done without the final support and backing of FBC Dunnellon." Nelson said even though the equipment is new, it hasn't taken long for the students and staff to quickly take to the computers and programs they offer. The computers have the latest touch screen technology designed for Windows 8. They are an all-in-one PC with a built in camera, which the students really love, Nelson noted. "The students needed almost no introduction to the new equipment," she explained. "Even our 3year-olds look like they have been working with them for months." School officials are already in the planning stages of its next fundraiser, Nelson said, explaining the first major fundraiser was completed allowing them to place a down payment on the next major purchase -a new, big piece of playground equipment. "The kids are very excited," Nelson exclaimed. Christian Academy upgrades computers for students Photos by JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon Christian Academy fifth-grade students work on the new computers the school purchased early this year. The new, modern, state-of-the-art computers replaced the private schools outdated and antiquated equipment.

may decrease with the return of warmer weather, there are still plenty of manatees to keep tour operators busy.Whether you are going at it alone or are taking a guided tour, there are some rules youll need to follow when interacting with these gentle giants. There are no manatee sanctuary areas until Nov. 15, but visitors still need to be aware of responsible interaction guidelines and make sure to mind their manatee manners. According to Vicente, passive observation is the key for swimmers to avoid disturbing manatees. Swimmers should remain as motionless as possible on the surface, observing from a distance, without initiating any contact, Vicente said. Typically, manatees are very curious about people who behave in this fashion and are usually approached when people behave like this. Through passive observation, visitors will avoid breaking manatee interaction rules. Here are some tips for interacting with manatees from the Save the Manatee Club: Do not enter designated manatee sanctuaries for any reason. Look, but dont touch observe manatees from the surface of the water and at a distance. Avoid excessive noise and splashing. Use snorkel gear when attempting to watch manatees the sound of scuba gear may cause them to leave the area. Dont feed manatees or give them water.

Chicas said he is already prepared and focused for his next challenge. Chicas got hurt last year, so this is his last chance to show the world what he can do. He hopes to shave enough off his time to end up running in the 15minute range. The Region 2A-2 race will be Nov. 10 at Lake Nona High School in Orlando. Start time for the boys is scheduled for 9:40 a.m. CHICAS continued from page 6 The 2013 Dunnellon High School District Cross Country runners, front row, from left, are: Courtney Pike and Daisy Morris; middle row, Valerie Bazarte, boys coach; Steven Shields, Jordon Loyola, Jonathan Padilla, Johnny Martin, Victor Chicas and Michael Rumsey, girls coach; back row, DAndre Munford, Charles Cross, Travis Colston and Kevin Hanson.

Attempting to cut into its 10-point deficit, the Tigers turned the ball over on their ensuing possession. The third turnover for Dunnellon set up another Colts touchdown as Derrick Harmon scored on a second goal, putting the nail in Dunnellons playoff bid as North Marion extended its lead to 24-7. The turnovers really hurt us this game, Beasley said. We needed to stop turning the ball over as much as we did in order to come up with a win. Dunnellon will host Williston at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9, at Ned Love Field as the Tigers close out their season with Senior Night. Williston will be a good game, well play hard like always for our last game of the season, Beasley said.

Whitt the new mayor after soundly defeating Ward In a decisive victory, challenger Nathan Whitt soundly defeated incumbent Fred Ward Tuesday night for Seat No. 1, the mayors seat, on the Dunnellon City Council. Whitt, a longtime businessman, won the seat with 62.5 percent of the votes, 535-321. Ward has held the position since 2008, when he was elected to the City Council. He was seeking his third term in office. It was the type of victory we were hoping for, Whitt said of the nearly 2-to-1 margin of victory. Whitt said his first order of business will be to bring a sense of order and peace to the City Council. Its seemed chaotic the past few years, he explained. We want the public to feel welcome, like they have a voice. We are going to listen to what folks have to say. Whitt, who ran his campaign on the promise of mending fences with the public as well as residents of Rainbow Springs said that remains the top priority. Obviously, Im going to have a lot to learn about procedure, said Whitt, who will be sworn in Nov. 13 at Dunnellon City Hall. Most importantly, we have to stop with the name-calling and show everyone who comes in some respect. Everyone deserves to be heard. Ward could not be reached for comment. Nathan Whitt Fred Ward Three arrested for grand theft A 47-year-old Dunnellon man and two Dunnellon teenagers face charges of burglary and grand theft stemming from a burglary Oct. 24, arrest reports from the Dunnellon Police Department stated. According to the reports, Mark J. Ball, 47, his son, Matthew D. Ball, 19, and Codi A. Dollar, 18, face charges of burglary and grand theft while Mark Ball was charged with an additional count of dealing in stolen property after the three allegedly removed numerous power tools from a residence in the 20500 block of Chestnut Street. The report stated Dollar was inside a detached structure and selected 13 various power tools which he gave to Matthew Ball, who was standing in the backyard of a property in the 11800 block of Illinois Street, which is directly behind the address of the property on Chestnut Street. According to the report, both Dollar and Matthew Ball concealed the stolen items in a shed at their residence on Illinois Street. During an initial interview with authorities, both Dollar and Matthew Ball Photos by ALYSSA VELEZ/For the Riverland NewsCity Manager Lisa Algiere, who was recently given rave reviews by the Dunnellon City Council leading to a new three-year contract, reacts to a series of questions asked by the Riverland Newsand a few by students in the Dunnellon High School journalism class. City manager discusses topics regarding citys future The Riverland News continues with its Nine Degrees of Dunnellon. In the first two, the Riverland News and Dunnellon High School journalism teacher Julie Mancini and her journalism students interviewed Mayoral candidates Fred Ward and Nathan Whitt. This time, the Riverland News recently sat down with City Manager Lisa Algiere, who was recently rewarded with a new three-year contract by the Dunnellon City Council. During her tenure, Algiere has leveraged financing for the creation of Greenlight Dunnellon Communications, the citys highly touted fiber-optic system, and purchased the Rio Vista, Rainbow Springs and Juliette Falls utility systems. The city is currently in talks with the state to acquire 170 acres of land near Rio Vista in hopes to build a new sports facility park. Riverland News: Many people feel that eco-tourism should be an intricate part of Dunnellon. Do you feel it is possible to have a hotel or resort on or along the Rainbow River and still be able to protect the river? Algiere: Dunnellon sees more than 200,000 visitors every year on the Rainbow and Withlacoochee rivers. Many of these visitors stay at hotels in Ocala or Crystal River, taking their discretionary dollars with them. We do not have enough hotel rooms to accommodate them in Dunnellon. If they were to lodge overnight in Dunnellon, then our local businesses and overall city would benefit from the economic impact generated by these tourists. Obviously, a resort type hotel would be an asset to our community. A hotel on the river can be developed in an environmentally friendly manner. There are ordinances and regulations in place that protect the rivers and environment when development occurs. Riverland News: The Bicycle Trail has been touted as a potential economic boost to Dunnellon. With that much importance, how is it that so few dollars are being allocated toward its construction? Algiere: The city has prepared a Bicycle/Pedestrian Master Plan. We are in the beginning stages of implementing that plan. In addition, there are trails that are Algiere explains her daily duties as city manager of Dunnellon. She has held the position for more than three years now. Potpourri of new businesses open their doors It might be a sign the economy is improving, as Dunnellon is seeing an influx of new businesses in the past two months. From art galleries to computer repair to a new restaurant, there might be options for everyone. Purple Sage Almost a week after Myriams Restaurant & Grill closed, Purple Sage Caf took its place, opening Nov. 1 and celebrated its grand opening Nov. 4. The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Sandra Highfield, the co-owner and chef, said the restaurant will carry a mixture of international dishes as well as many of Myriams signature dishes, including her Cuban sandwich and soups. Her soups were very popular, Highfield said. Theyre the same recipes. Among the new signature dishes Highfield plans to add to the new menu, which include Thai and Chinese cuisine, and also Panang and Pad Thai Curry as well as several stir-fry dishes with fried rice. They wont be your traditionally spicy dishes, JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsSandra, left, and Crofton Highfield are the owners of Purple Sage Cafe. Dunnellons newest eatery opened its doors last Thursday where Myriams had been.

constructed and main-tained by different agencies that allocate funds as they become available. We coordinate with those agencies in an effort to see the trails developed in a timely manner. One example is the pedestrian bridge that will be constructed across the Withlacoochee River and is expected to be completed by June 2013. All trails lead to Dunnellon, and part of the master plan is to ensure that all trails in the region are connected. Riverland News: Clearly there are competing visions for the future of Dunnellon; how can we bring these two visions together, build consensus and work toward uniting the community to achieve bringing that vision to fruition? The citizens of Dunnellon adopted a Strategic Vision in 2004 that has a vision of a sustainable community with responsible growth and quality of life. Annexations next to the airport lay the foundation for industrial growth that will increase the citys tax base. We have been working with our citizens to improve recreation, aesthetics and pedestrianfriendly areas. We will continue to work with our citizens to implement the Strategic Vision and improve the quality of life in our community. Riverland News: Many business owners in the community, especially those along U.S. 41, feel the medians are a detriment to business. What steps can city officials take to work with the state to have them removed to breathe new life into a key business district and key property tax generator in Dunnellon? After we develop a conceptual streetscaping plan for East Pennsylvania Avenue, we will have a model to show how the rest of the citys business district could look. This plan will be prepared by our engineers and with input from stakeholders in the business corridors. Using this concept, we can then go to the state and ask them to review the need for the medians and look for alternatives. Riverland News: Team Jacob or Team Edward? Algiere: Team Jacob. I have a soft spot for the underdog. Riverland News: The city recently applied for a CDBG grant to construct a water line from the Dunnellon Airport west into Dunnellon Heights to entice businesses. What, if any, businesses are officials currently in talks with? If there are none, why? What types of businesses do you plan to pursue and when? The purpose of the project is to increase water pressure to the Dunnellon Heights area so that fire flows are adequate. An added bonus is that infrastructure will become available to attract businesses. Currently, we are not in discussion with any business to locate in this area, mainly because the grant has yet to be awarded. However, we want to talk to medical clinics, high-tech companies and other businesses that depend on the proximity to an airport and need specialized industrial space in the very near future. City staff is in the process of identifying businesses to approach. Riverland News: There has been much controversy surrounding the redlight cameras in Dunnellon. The contract with American Traffic Solutions is set to expire in the fall of 2013. Do you plan to encourage the City Council to renew the contract? The red-light cameras are serving the purpose of improving public safety. Violations have decreased and as an added bonus, the police department has been able to solve other crimes using the cameras. When the contract is up for renewal, I will present the pros and cons to the city council for their review. It will ultimately be the decision of the City Council regarding the status of the cameras. Riverland News: How do you see the community benefiting from a medical facility? If so, where do you believe such a facility could be located? How might the citys fiber-optic investment be used to fulfill such a need? With the high number of visitors to our area and the nearest emergency clinic more than 20 minutes away, either on State Road 200 or in Citrus County, I believe it is important to have a medical clinic in Dunnellon that can treat minor emergencies. An ideal location would be along County Road 484. Fiber optics is the most reliable way to provide highspeed broadband. As medical technology advances, it becomes more critical to have high-speed broadband to transport data and images. High-speed broadband is the new must-have utility for communities to be competitive in economic development. Not only is it necessary in the medical industry, it is vital for many industries that rely on the Internet in the course of operating their business. Riverland News: How do you feel the Port Citrus project might impact the city of Dunnellon and surrounding area? How should city officials be involved in the project? Port Citrus has the potential to generate jobs regionally. Dunnellon lies between Port Citrus and Ocala, which makes us strategically situated for the port to benefit the local economy. In addition, our fiber optic network will be attractive to many of the companies that could locate in the area. We have been in discussion with Citrus County officials and as they proceed with their feasibility study, we will continue to communicate with them. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, November 8, 2012 000D4CY 000D5U1 Best of the Best four years in a row HOURS: Mon.

The reports stated Mark Ball told authorities he witnessed Dollar hand the stolen items to his son, Matthew. He also stated Dollar was on the victims property handing the items to Matthew over the fence. Both Dollar and Matthew Ball were charged Oct. 25 with burglary and grand theft. According to Marion County Jail records, Dollars bond was set at $4,000. He made bail Oct. 26. Matthew Balls bond was set at $4,000. He made bond Oct. 31. The report stated on Oct. 27, Mark Ball came to the Dunnellon Police Department and advised authorities he needed to clear his mind about stuff. During an audio recorded interview, postMiranda, Mark Ball told Cpl. Bruce Arnold and Officer Mike Miley he had assisted Matthew Ball as he received the stolen items from Dollar as they were passed over a fence. According to the report, Mark Ball told authorities he assisted in moving the stolen property away from the residence. He also said, the report stated, the landlord/ roommate of the defendants observed them removing tools from their residence, and upon asking them who the tools belonged to, the defendants advised him, theyre ours. The report advised he later, at an unknown date, gave away three items, which he knew were stolen, with the intent to get rid of the property and to cover up the crime. According to the report, the value of the power tools taken from the residence on Chestnut Street was estimated at $1,225. According to Marion County Jail records, Mark Ball, who was booked Oct. 29, remains in custody. His bond was set at $3,500 for the charges of burglary and grand theft; no bond was set for the charge of dealing in stolen property.

she explained. Highfield said Purple Sage will also carry freshly baked pastries on a daily basis. She said she hopes to see many of the regulars who frequented Myriams on a daily or weekly basis. Were still going to be the same family-oriented restaurant with a few new dishes for people to try, she said. Purple Sage Caf is at 20359 E. Pennsylvania Ave. Reed Art Gallery Dunnellons newest art gallery celebrated its grand opening Oct. 20 during the 14th annual Jazz Up Dunnellon. Jill Reed, co-owner of the gallery, said she and her husband, Jim, had a soft opening Oct. 19 with a small amount of close friends. It was great, she said, noting Red Fox Gallery owner Jerry Vaughn made an appearance. Weve really gotten to know Jerry well and hes fabulous. He loves what weve done here. She said unlike his gallery, she and her husband dont do the custom framing Vaughn does. Weve had him do some of our stuff, and hes great, she said, praising his work. We are going to certainly encourage our customers to seek him out for frames. He does beautiful work. She said her husband, Jim, has been an artist for a long time, though his professional career was that of a businessman in the South Florida region. She said it was always a long-time dream to open a gallery. Well, maybe it was my dream, she said with smile. The couple moved here in March 2007, having bought a home in Rio Vista. We just love it here, Jill said. We love the river; we bring our family here and they go on the river and they love it too. We just love the community. Reed Art Gallery is at 20709 W.

Bonnies Antiques Bonnies Antiques, a consignment antiques store, opened three weeks ago in the Downtown Dunnellon Historic District. The business, owned by Bonnie and James Burchett, is west of the Annie W. Johnson Thrift Store. James Burchett said his wife has been a small business owner for the past 20 years, starting in Virginia and making her way toward Florida. This is her first antique consignment store shes run. I respect them, Bonnie Burchett said, while setting up a variety of displays in her store. James Burchett said they originally planned to lease the building they are in, but ended up buying it and establishing their newest business venture. We really just love the atmosphere here in town, he explained. We just fell in love with the town and the people. Theyve been great to us thus far. James Burchett said his wife is very selective in what shell consign. If she feels it belongs here, shell let them know, he said. But if it doesnt, shell politely let them know about other options.

He said he and his business partner, Omar Ali, are both certified in their line of work and compare their certification to that of an ASA Certified Mechanic. Thats probably the best way to describe it, Kahn said. Global Computer Support is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call 489-6688.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, November 8, 2012 River views If your disabling condition makes it hard for you to drive or arrange transportation to your local Social Security office, we have some good news. You can complete and submit your application for Social Security disability benefits from your own home computer. Get started at www.socialsecurity.gov/disability. The application process involves determining: Whether you have sufficient work to be eligible for Social Security; The severity of your medical condition; and Your ability to work. Because we carefully review so many cases more than three million each year it can take us three to five months to determine whether you are eligible to receive benefits. The amount of time it takes to make a decision on your application can vary depending on a number of factors, such as: The nature of your disability; How quickly we obtain medical evidence from your doctors, hospitals, or other medical sources; and Whether we need to send you for a medical examination in order to obtain evidence to support your claim. We do a number of things to speed up the process when we can. For example, our Compassionate Allowances initiative allows us to fast-track certain cases of individuals with very severe disabilities such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). There are 165 different types of disabilities that qualify for this expedited decision, and that list continues to expand. Learn more about Compassionate Allowances at www.socialsecurity.gov/compassionateallowances. Another way we speed up decisions is with our Quick Disability Determinations initiative, which uses technology to identify applicants who have the most severe disabilities and allows us to expedite our decisions on those cases. Read more about Quick Disability Determinations at www.socialsecurity.gov/disabilityresearch/qd d.htm. There are things you can do to help speed up the decision process too. The more information you provide up front, the less time it will take us to Divorce makes life more interesting Ihave never been a person who believes in the unknown. I know this bothers people when I say this but I was born without a faith gene. I am not even ye of little faith, I have no faith. People have a hard time understanding this. My lack of faith sure ticks people off. They want to cure me and show me the way. I can not explain it any other way than to say it is how I came out of the womb. Its just not in me. I cant make myself a 6-foot, blue-eyed blonde, nor can I make myself have faith. Its just not in me. As much as you cant understand that or question me, I do the same about believers. I dont get it. I am the type of person who has to see it to believe it. Therefore, I would not be a person who espouses alien landings. Well, I have become a believer because there is no other explanation for what I am about to tell you. I think an alien has taken over my sister-in-laws brain. She is in love with a dog no, not my brother a real four-legged dog. I have known this woman more than 25 years. She has never been an animal person. Never, ever! I dont know if it is a fear of animals or the grossness of animals (the slobbering, the licking themselves, the barfing then eating it, etc). Maybe it is a combination of all these things, but some people dont like animals. I guess you could say they were born that way. Personally, I think I am one of those people who prefer animals over people. Dogs are always happy to see you. They are often smarter than their owners and they rarely talk back. I am allergic to cats so I cannot tell you the finer points of cat companions. So, I hear what you are saying: Big deal, so she likes a dog. No, you dont get it. This is monumental. The odds of her letting a dog in the house are like the odds of Republicans and Democrats getting along and putting American citizens ahead of politics. If you want to keep it closer to home, its like Penny Fleeger and Burt Eno sitting down for a cup of tea and biscuits. Ah, now, you are getting it! Those things are never going to happen! Therefore, the only explanation can be an alien invasion. It must have happened about nine months ago. This is when McGee showed up on my brothers doorstep. She sat on their front porch and refused to leave. Being a dog person, I was volunteered to be her owner. She was having no part of it. She refused to get in my car. McGee lied down on all fours and wouldnt budge. She picked her home and no one was going to change her mind. I have to admit she is the sweetest dog on this planet. I think she would melt the heart of any non-dog lover. McGee is part German Shepard and part hound. She is a big moose with a rapid fire tail, a loveable clodhopper that is always in the way. Her big floppy ears make her look like she is wearing a matadors cap. She is mildmannered and well behaved. Dont get me wrong, she is not a wonder dog. McGee has one bad habit. She likes to dig holes. She would have made a great combat soldier, because she is the best trench digger on four The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

RIVERLAND NEWS THE OTHER GUY SOCIAL SECURITY TIME TO SMILE JERSEY GIRL Itake my voting very seriously. I walked into the Riverland Baptist Church Tuesday, marked all the boxes, dropped it in the ballot box and felt very proud of myself as I do every time I vote. My mother tells me many years ago, they used to pull a handle to vote and you had to step behind a curtain. I didnt even realize some places still use those electronic machines, and who can forget the hanging chad controversy back in 2000? Oh dont worry, this is not another article about politics and Im not even going to tell you who I voted for. Im sure many of you would be surprised. Instead this is a story about the honor of voting. Yes, it is an honor and a privilege. First of all, think of all the people all over the world who cannot vote. Their voices count for nothing and they have no say in what their country is doing. Dont forget women werent always allowed to vote. Neither were African Americans. That seems so crazy now. Then think of all the people who are registered to vote, but just dont get out there and do it. Now that is even sadder if you ask me. Doesnt our country matter to you? At least enough to get your butt out of the chair and take 10 minutes of your time to cast your vote? If you dont want to make the decision of who to vote for then how can you possibly complain when things dont go your way? Oh yes, I take it very seriously. I study about all the candidates, who they are and what they stand for. I even study every single one of the amendments before voting. If I dont understand them, I go onto the Internet and search for websites where they explain them in normal language. After all, I dont want to say yes, when what I really meant was no. Sometimes its really tricky because if you say no, youre really not saying no, you are actually saying yes I dont want this to change. Or no I do want this to change. So we have to be really careful when choosing our answers on these amendments. Oh, I admit there have been a few times when I really had no idea who the people were who were running and so I chose them by name. Yep, I chose the one whose name I liked the best. I know it sounds silly, but your name can say a lot about you. Thank goodness there are not many of those that I havent done my homework about already. So now its over, and we can all breathe a sigh of relief that those annoying commercials are over. I hear a big YAH. As I write this, I have no idea what the outcome for President of the United States is going to be. I know some people are happy, some are not. I just wish the Vote now or forever hold your peace For two-plus years now, Ive always allowed you, the readers, into my personal life. Ive written about triumphs and tragedies, the good times and the bad. This happens to be one of the bad times. My wife and I, after seven years of marriage and three children together, have decided its best to part ways. No one here is at fault; weve both drifted our own ways in the past few years. Now we face the daunting task millions of others nationwide face, raising children as single parents. Tabetha has the benefit of a large extended family to back her because they are local and nearby. I, on the other hand, have the support of my family, most of whom are more than a 1,000 miles away. Most of my friends are hundreds if not thousands of miles away, yet todays technology of text messages, email, Facebook and Skype allows me to stay in close contact with my friends whove offered plenty of support and places to get away from it all. Certainly, I would have never fathomed this scenario when we said I Do til death do us part. The death might have come soon, constant fighting and bickering among each of us, interference from family members and friends became more consistent. Deep down, perhaps we both knew sometime ago this was inevitable. She just happened to make the initial move. A Dear Jeff letter I stumbled upon shortly after our anniversary in June was all the proof I needed to know her indications. However, for the next 18 years we will have to put all of our bitterness and petty feelings aside for the betterment of our children. Yet, while life will go on for our children, changes in life were immediate for both of us. Shes back to work and has moved out. Were sharing custody of our children, but unlike the past when officials called it joint custody, some wise officials decided to label it time sharing. Funny, I always considered time sharing a vacation rental, not children. I no longer have the opportunity to hear the shouts of daddy and feet storming for the door, which sounds more like a stampede, when I arrive home from work. For Jackson and Jayden, they seem to be handling it as well as 5and 4-year-old boys can. They are excited about their new house because of a nearby playground; Emmalyn is so young See WILLIAMS page 5 See JERSEY GIRL page 5 Audrey Beem Disabled?

she will grow accustomed to the lifestyle. So my friends in town, if Ive seemed or still seem off-kilter a bit in the days, weeks and months ahead, I ask for your patience. I certainly plan on giving the readers of theRiverland Newsmy best efforts as Ive always attempted to do in the past two years. I could be bitter, but I wont be. I wish Tabetha the best of luck in the coming years. I hope she finds happiness and joy. I, on the other hand, will bounce back. Im sure with time, the wounds will heal. Im certain that one day, Ill meet a woman in this universe who will melt my heart, give me chills and love me unconditionally for all of my faults and show me grace and wisdom beyond her years and probably mine, too. obtain the evidence we need and the faster we can process your application.

SSI is a needsbased program for people 65 or older, blind, or disabled who have limited income and resources. We consider your inheritance as income for the month you received it. Accordingly, we may have to adjust your benefit for that month. If you keep the money into the next month, the money then becomes a part of your resources. A person with more than $2,000 or a couple with more than $3000 in total resources cannot receive SSI, although there are exceptions.

But I think theres a slim chance of that ever happening. So if you voted for the winner, congratulations. If you didnt, well I hope things will work out the way you want them to. As we all have witnessed in the past, most decisions are made by Congress and the president has little say anyway. If you didnt care enough to vote, all I can say is shame on you. Your country and what it stands for should be enough to make you want to take a stand. With the opponents being total opposites this time I hope you took the time to cast your vote and decide whats important. A lot rides on the outcome. God Bless America.

Bowlers Of The Week: Debbe Chung, 99 pins over her average, and Dalton Grudzas, 140 pins over his average. Chicas captures second district crown It was by the narrowest of margins that Victor Chicas was able to win the top spot in the district cross country race, but it wasnt because of his running. Chicas was engrossed in the lesson in his science class and completely lost track of time. When he finally did look up at the clock, all of the other runners were already on their way to The Villages for the district meet, and Chicas had no ride. We were just in the middle of AP Physics class when (Victor) looks up at me and says, Uh oh said Robert Ayton, science teacher. He then ran out of my class, in his warm-ups, and I instantly remembered that he forgot the meet. Since the cross country team is not very large, they do not secure a bus to ride to their meets. Each athlete is responsible for getting his or her own ride or letting the coach know that they need to ride in the school van. The mix-up occurred because the other runners did not know that Chicas was still at school. Thats when Assistant Principal Debbie Love stepped in and drove Chicas to the Polo Grounds at the Villages. Chicas arrived with just minutes to spare before his race. Chicas ran a 17:40 for the Victor Chicas Youth fishing licenses available Youths can join conservation team for stateEven 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 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 Its manatee season again Editors note: This article is the first of a three-part series pertaining to manatees and manatee season.Its that time of the year again when Citrus Countys manatee population draws an audience from visitors hailing from all parts of the globe, with people taking part in guided and self-guided excursions to Three Sisters Springs and other area hot spots. On Tuesday, unofficial counts indicated 86 manatees were already in the area and on Wednesday morning a huge concentration was sighted in Three Sisters Springs. I counted 62 manatees in Three Sisters, said Ivan Vicente, visitor services specialist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. This means that there probably is over 150 manatees in Kings Bay from this cold front that came in.

With a playoff spot at stake, Dunnellon High School had to go through its long-time rival, North Marion, Friday at Ned Love Field. Unfortunately, the Tigers got bucked off by the Colts, 24-7, putting an end to Dunnellons bid for a playoff spot, the second straight year the Tigers will miss the postseason. With the victory, North Marion will advance to the Class 5A playoffs. We had a great week of practice last week, we just did not execute during the game even though we played well, said Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley, whose team dropped to 4-5 overall and 3-2 in District 5A-5 and had its four-game winning streak snapped. After turning the ball over on its first possession, Dunnellons LJ Brown made a key interception on a Colts convert a fourth-down attempt, giving the Tigers the ball at their own 35-yard line. Dunnellon marched its way into Colts territory. Inside the 5-yard line, quarterback Jordan Boley pushed through the middle for the touchdown as Shane Williams added the extra point, giving the Tigers a 7-0 lead with 11:54 remaining in the second quarter. North Marion responded quickly to Dunnellons touchdown with a scoring drive of its own. After making their way down the field, the Colts Reggie Wilkerson scored on a third-andlong as David Hatcher added the extra point, leaving the score at 7alll with 8:55 left in the opening half. After each team traded possessions, the tables turned in favor of North Marion when Hatcher booted a 25yard field goal on fourth-and-long, giving the Colts a 10-7 lead at the half. Looking to rally in the third quarter, senior defensive back Chris Jackson picked off an errant Colts pass, setting the Tigers offense near midfield. Beasley credited the play of his teams defensive backs Chris Jackson, L.J Brown and Gabe Saathoff against the Colts. They did well, Beasley added. However, Dunnellon couldnt capitalize on the turnover, as North Marion intercepted the ball, setting up another scoring drive. Hall capped the drive, Special to the Riverland News See FISHI NG page 12 JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsA trio of Dunnellon defenders converge on a North Marion ball carrier during the Tigers 24-7 loss to the Colts in a critical District 5A-5 showdown Friday at Ned Love Field.

Lucille M. Nolan, 87Lucille M. Nolan, 87, of Ocala, passed away Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012. Born in Elkhart, Ind., she moved to Ocala from there in 2009. A veteran in the U.S. Army, she worked as an electronics welder. Preceded in death by her husband, Ralph Nolan Sr., and daughter, Penny Ward. She is survived by her sons, Rudy (Kristie) Nolan, Ralph (Cynthia) Nolan; daughter, Susan Clay; brother, Ralph Little; sister, Pat Gashorn; eight grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren and six great-great grandchildren. Arrangements by Countryside Funeral Home, Anthony. Cecelia W. Hunter, 93Cecelia W. Hunter, (formerly Cecelia Middleton), 93, of Rainbow Springs, Dunnellon, passed away on Monday, Oct. 29, 2012 at MRMC in Ocala. She was born on Jan. 21, 1919 in New York City. Cecelia grew up and lived in Greenwich, Conn., where she enjoyed horseback riding, and sailing at Indian Harbor Yacht Club. She married William H. Middleton in 1942. He served in the Second Infantry Division for three years in Europe where he served as a forward artillery officer. Cecelia is survived by her five children, MarilyAnne, William, John, Patricia, Elaine, plus seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. The family settled in Lake Forest, Ill., in 1960 where the children grew up. Cecelia was a member of The Church of the Holy Spirit in L.F., and was an avid golfer, gardener and sailor. At the age of 50 she took up riding again. In 1973, her first husband, William Middleton unexpectedly died. After a period of grieving, Tiny was blessed to find Thomas Hunter Jr., a recent widower, while on a cruise. They found mutual interests, married, and had the most marvelous 14 years together. It was while married to Tom that Tiny renewed her interests in competitive horse showing. She competed nationally in Dressage and Hunter Classes and was a well-known equestrian at AHSA horseshows on the East Coast because of her age and accomplishments. In 1995, at the age of 74, she and her horse, Tinys Time, won the 1st Year Green Working Hunter Championship at the National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden in New York City, one of over 100 ribbons and trophies in her collection. Cecelia and Tom traveled extensively until his passing. Cecelia moved to Rainbow Springs in 2009 to enjoy the Florida weather. She was petite, (hence her nickname Tiny) energetic, interested in everyone she met and enjoyed an active, wonderful, full life. A memorial service is scheduled for 5 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2012 at the Roberts Funeral Home, Dunnellon with visitation scheduled 4 to 5 p.m. She will be inurned in the family mausoleum at Rivers Bend Cemetery, Westerly, Rhode Island later this fall.

County sponsoring event open to students Special to the Riverland News Technology is key to the future, so are the youths of today. So when the decision was made to upgrade the aging, antiquated computers at Dunnellon Christian Academy, school officials set about the task with a sense of urgency. "With technology changing so rapidly, it is important to stay as current as possible," said Principal Kristy Nelson said, noting the school had been upgrading technology in the classroom by purchasing interactive smart boards for each room. "It was time to follow suit by purchasing these new computers for the lab. The old ones were over ten years old." Because DCA is a small school and not supported by taxpayer dollars, fundraisers played an integral part in coming up with necessary funding to purchase new state of the art computers. "Due to the generocity of the community, school families and church families, we were able to raise the funds to cover the cost of the computer lab last year," Nelson said, explaining proceeds from the school's two major fundraisers -Abundant Funds and the DCA Auction -as well as a private fundraiser to make the necessary purchases. "None of our school improvements could be done without the final support and backing of FBC Dunnellon." Nelson said even though the equipment is new, it hasn't taken long for the students and staff to quickly take to the computers and programs they offer. The computers have the latest touch screen technology designed for Windows 8. They are an all-in-one PC with a built in camera, which the students really love, Nelson noted. "The students needed almost no introduction to the new equipment," she explained. "Even our 3year-olds look like they have been working with them for months." School officials are already in the planning stages of its next fundraiser, Nelson said, explaining the first major fundraiser was completed allowing them to place a down payment on the next major purchase -a new, big piece of playground equipment. "The kids are very excited," Nelson exclaimed. Christian Academy upgrades computers for students Photos by JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon Christian Academy fifth-grade students work on the new computers the school purchased early this year. The new, modern, state-of-the-art computers replaced the private schools outdated and antiquated equipment.

may decrease with the return of warmer weather, there are still plenty of manatees to keep tour operators busy.Whether you are going at it alone or are taking a guided tour, there are some rules youll need to follow when interacting with these gentle giants. There are no manatee sanctuary areas until Nov. 15, but visitors still need to be aware of responsible interaction guidelines and make sure to mind their manatee manners. According to Vicente, passive observation is the key for swimmers to avoid disturbing manatees. Swimmers should remain as motionless as possible on the surface, observing from a distance, without initiating any contact, Vicente said. Typically, manatees are very curious about people who behave in this fashion and are usually approached when people behave like this. Through passive observation, visitors will avoid breaking manatee interaction rules. Here are some tips for interacting with manatees from the Save the Manatee Club: Do not enter designated manatee sanctuaries for any reason. Look, but dont touch observe manatees from the surface of the water and at a distance. Avoid excessive noise and splashing. Use snorkel gear when attempting to watch manatees the sound of scuba gear may cause them to leave the area. Dont feed manatees or give them water.

Its the second time in the past three years the Dunnellon High boys cross country team has advanced to the regional meet. The two girls cross country runners who competed at districts, junior Courtney Pike and senior Daisy Morris, did not make the cut for regionals. Chicas said he is already prepared and focused for his next challenge. Chicas got hurt last year, so this is his last chance to show the world what he can do. He hopes to shave enough off his time to end up running in the 15minute range. The Region 2A-2 race will be Nov. 10 at Lake Nona High School in Orlando. Start time for the boys is scheduled for 9:40 a.m. CHICAS continued from page 6 The 2013 Dunnellon High School District Cross Country runners, front row, from left, are: Courtney Pike and Daisy Morris; middle row, Valerie Bazarte, boys coach; Steven Shields, Jordon Loyola, Jonathan Padilla, Johnny Martin, Victor Chicas and Michael Rumsey, girls coach; back row, DAndre Munford, Charles Cross, Travis Colston and Kevin Hanson.

Attempting to cut into its 10-point deficit, the Tigers turned the ball over on their ensuing possession. The third turnover for Dunnellon set up another Colts touchdown as Derrick Harmon scored on a second goal, putting the nail in Dunnellons playoff bid as North Marion extended its lead to 24-7. The turnovers really hurt us this game, Beasley said. We needed to stop turning the ball over as much as we did in order to come up with a win. Dunnellon will host Williston at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9, at Ned Love Field as the Tigers close out their season with Senior Night. Williston will be a good game, well play hard like always for our last game of the season, Beasley said.
