Kyle E. Lay Victor Crawford remains in jail A 35-year-old Beverly Hills man faces a drug charge after authorities stopped the man for driving a vehicle with expired tags Jan. 6, a Dunnellon Police Department arrest report stated. According to the report, Victor W. Crawford was charged with possession of crack cocaine. The report stated Crawford was driving southbound on U.S. 41 when Officer Scott Houts observed Crawford driving a black Ford truck with expired tags. Houts then, according to the report, initiated a traffic stop. Houts made contact with Crawford, who then informed him he was in possession of a small bag of marijuana which Crawford turned over to authorities. Crawford then consented to a search of the vehicle. According to the report, during the search of the vehicle Houts observed a white in color pill container on the passenger side of the vehicle in a Wendys fastfood bag (where Crawford was seated). Upon opening the container, the report stated, Houts observed a white in color rock-like substance. Also in the passenger seat was an empty box of cigarettes, which upon further inspection by Houts contained a clear plastic bag inside filled with a white powdery substance. The report stated Houts conducted a presumptive field test on the white in color rocklike substance and the white powdery substance, both of which tested positive for the presence of cocaine. According to the report, post Miranda, Crawford told authorities the pack of cigarettes and white in color pill container were in fact his. Crawford was transported to the Marion County Jail. His bond was set at $5,000. As of press deadline Wednesday morning, Crawford remained in the Marion County Jail. Man, 35, faces drug charges Students, staff mourning the death of Kyle Lay Once again, students and staff at Dunnellon High School are in mourning. The close-knit, community-minded school is reeling after the tragic death of 17-year-old Kyle Lay, who died Friday night in a two-vehicle wreck in Ocala. Lay, a sophomore and member of the schools Junior Air Force ROTC, was killed when he was thrown from the back of a truck he was riding in, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. Its the second death in a 14-month span at the school. In November 2011, students and staff were hit hard when beloved teacher Andy Cottrill died prior to Thanksgiving break. Lays death comes two days after students and staff returned from their twoand-half week winter break. Family members, students and staff gathered around the flag pole for a moment of silence and prayer in support of Lays family and friends. Lays grief-stricken mother, Tanya, embraced family and friends throughout the morning, thanking them for their support. She said shell always remember her son for his fun personality. He was always concerned about other people, she said, her eyes filled with tears, still red and puffy. His grandmother, Pat Jones, said it was his goal to finish his education and join the U.S. Army, and eventually start a career as a law enforcement officer. Hes leading Gods army now, she said, fighting back tears. He was always concerned about everyone else. He had so many friends, not just here at school but everywhere. He could always make friends with anyone. Jones described her grandson as a country boy. She said she bought him a pair of cowboy-like work boots one year and he always wore them, his pants tucked in. I remember hed gone to the Mud Hole once, Jones said, noting Lay was one of her five grandchildren. He called me to apologize because hed gotten his boots all muddy and he had to wash them off. I told him that it was OK, theyre boots, theyre supposed to get muddy. Lays cousin, Allissa Miller, a member of the Junior ROTC at North Marion High School, recalled Lay as a person, she could talk to him JEFF BRYAN Riverland News JEFF BRYAN/Riverland News Students embrace each other after a moment of silence in honor of Kyle Lay. Report details fatal wreckA Dunnellon High School student was killed Friday during a two-vehicle crash after being thrown from the bed of a pickup truck. Kyle Eugene Altieri Lay, 17, was riding in the back of a 1990 Ford Ranger driven by Christine Hill, 49, heading east on Southwest County Road 95 when a vehicle driven by Joseph Minieri, 75, failed to observe the truck as it drove across the southbound and eastbound lanes of the roadway, according to the Florida Highway Patrol report. Minieri, who was driving a 2013 Chevy Equinox, struck the side of the truck, causing it to rotate and sending Lay into the air and toward a tree. Lay was pronounced dead at Ocala Regional Hospital. Hill and three other passengers in her Ranger 17year-old C.J. Hill, Dustin A. Hahn, also 17, and Michael Donals, 18, all of Dunnellon suffered non-lifethreatening injuries. See STUDENT page 8 Long-time officer bestowed agencys top honor A little more than two years ago, Sue Webb turned in her gun and badge along with her retirement papers to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, marking an end to her 20-plus year career in law enforcement. Or so she thought. Instead, the long-time Citrus County law enforcement officer was coaxed out of retirement by her long-time friend Joanne Black, chief of the Dunnellon Police Department. The thought was to have Webb assist the agency in a part-time capacity. After a month on the job with the agency, Webb was promoted to second in command and given a full-time slot. Retirement has been busy, she quipped. Indeed it has been for Webb, a fourth-generation Floridian and lifelong resident of Citrus County. Lt. Webb is one of three members of the Dunnellon Police Departments Water Rescue Unit and also serves as one of two instructors for the RAD Self-Defense Course. In addition to those Lt. Webb named Officer of the Year for DPD JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See HONOR page 3 JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Victor Crawford JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsLt.

This past year, she was elected to serve on the board of directors for Dunnellon Little League after working closely with members for several months after a rash of break-ins and thefts at the concession stand. Lt. Webb was instrumental in rounding up volunteers throughout the community to assist board members, coaches and parents in helping breathe new life into the outdated, antiquated facility. Now, Lt. Webb said, the district will allow Dunnellon to host tournaments this year, a vital cog in generating funds to keep the league afloat and pay expenses such as electricity bills. I started out wanting to find out how we could curtail the problems they were having, said Lt. Webb, named the agencys Officer of the Year. Slowly, I started getting involved in it more and they asked me to serve. Now, we have a facility that looks great, and others are noticing it. But its really satisfying when you see the look of pride on the kids faces and thats what its all about. Theyve got this facility that looks great and theyre taking pride in it. Its about giving them a chance to learn about teamwork, responsibility and so much more. Theyre our future and we need to do what we can to give them great opportunities. Lt. Webb praised the citizens for their involvement and that of Chief Blacks for not only encouraging it, but being at the forefront of community policing. This is a much more involved community. The people really care about making this a better place to live, to raise their children, Lt. Webb said. And chief really has a passion for community policing and being involved. She wants everyone here to be a part of the community. But what makes a difference is she doesnt just preach it, she does it and she encourages and supports it. If you didnt have that, it would be a moot point. She backs it up. Lt. Webb said working with a younger crew of law enforcement officers is a blessing. They teach us a lot about the technology, she said. It also gives us the chance to teach them about tactics or approaches they might not have thought about. But they are a fun group to be around, very dedicated, very loving and supportive of each oher. Though many aspects of a career in law enforcement have changed throughout her 20-plus years in the field, Lt. Webb said one aspect remains the same: the close bond you develop working with those around you. At a larger agency, you develop a close bond with those who are in your squad, you do a lot together, she explained. But here, were like those squads of larger agencies. We all spend time together, were very close. We watch out for each other, were very protective of each other. Chief Black praised Lt. Webb for her dedication, not only to the community, but to the field of law enforcement. Lt. Webb has enhanced our department through her dedication to the community she serves, as well as the department she represents, Chief Black said. Lt. Webb has brought her 25 years of law enforcement experience to our agency, which is a benefit to the agency as well as to the officers. She always provides assistance to the officers and staff members, maintaining a professional attitude at all times.

COMMUNITY NEWS OCALA Workforce Connection of Citrus, Levy and Marion counties will host a regional Homeless Veteran Stand Down to provide services and resources to homeless military veterans and their families. The event, in collaboration with area veterans groups and community organizations, will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, at the Florida Army National Guard Armory, 900 S.W. 20th St., in Ocala. There is no charge to participate. Stand Downs assist homeless veterans and their families by providing health screenings, Veterans Administration and Social Security benefits counseling and referrals to a variety of services such as employment, housing and substance abuse treatment. In addition, nonperishable foods, blankets and clothing will be distributed. Funding for the event is provided by a grant from the National Veterans Homeless Support (NVHS) and Florida Department of Children and Families. Workforce Connection was one of 20 organizations in Florida to receive the funding. The goal is to assist 4,000 homeless veterans throughout the state. Kim Smith, lead local veterans employment representative (LLVER) and Stand Down coordinator, said Workforce Connection will be offering employment services and appointments for one-onone consultations to help veterans overcome barriers to employment. This can be an event that will really benefit our veteran communities. Our Veteran Team is working hard to ensure that we are able to provide as many resources and services as possible to our veterans in greatest need, said Smith, a United States Navy veteran and former Florida National Guard member. This network of resources is meant as a hand up, not a handout. To learn more about the Homeless Veteran Stand Down or Workforce Connections priority veterans services, contact Smith at 352-732-1700, ext. 2225 or 800-434-JOBS and ask to speak to a Veterans Representative.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, January 10, 2013 River views Urgent message for the residents of Rainbow SpringsRegarding the Rainbow Springs Property Owners Association General Election/Meeting Jan. 16; you have probably received your Election Packet in the mail with a green proxy form. Please do not sign this form to President Frankenfield or mail it in. If you do, this will guarantee the election of the same exact Board of Directors and the two people they have chosen. This procedure is not an open election. Again this year, Joan Duggins and Penny Fyrogennis are offering to carry your proxies to the meeting. You vote for your choices in the bottom section and sign the proxy line to one of us and we will take it to the Election Meeting, if you cannot come. We are urging everyone to come to this important meeting, and if you have already mailed in your proxy you can change it at the meeting. Joan can be reached at 489-1865 and Penny at 489-4526 and we will try to answer your questions or help with the proxies. One of the questions to ask the BOD is about the covenant that states, because the developer does not pay any yearly assessment per lot, the developer has to cover any deficit of the POA at the end of each fiscal year. Many residents do not know this information. Be sure you have an up-to-date copy of the Covenants and By-laws and really read them. We hope to see you at the meeting. Penny Fyrogennis Joan Duggins Rainbow Springs Fire Rescue thanks community for its support of Christmas party2012 was another good year for the annual Needy Childrens Christmas party. The children, along with their parents, lined up early to see Santa. As usual Santa rode in, not with the reindeer and sleigh, but on the big red fire truck with lights flashing and sirens blaring. They enjoyed a wonderful baked ziti dinner, with all the fixings, provided by the Dunnellon Bingo Hall before being greeted by Santa. Dunnellon Fire and Rescue cant say enough about the generosity of the business community and the residents of the Dunnellon area. Their donations and support make this event possible year after year. Truly a lot of these children may not have had a Christmas if it werent for this event, which has been held continuously for more Tragedy strikes again at Dunnellon High A liens, vampires, monsters, super heroes, warriors and time travelers; no, this not a commentary about Halloween.

This was last weeks line up: The Walking Dead, Revolution, Park Avenue, Arrow, Dexter, True Blood, Being Human and Vampire Diaries. Notice there were no sit coms on the list. I heard an older gentleman say: When I was growing up girls were scared of vampires. Now they all want to date them. What is happening? When I was growing up there was really only one big scify club and that was, of course, Star Trek. My older brother loved that show. I never understood it. Beam me up, Scotty. What does that even mean? Then again I didnt understand Star Wars or Close Encounters of the Third Kind either. My grandson was so disappointed in me when I told him the only thing I know about Star Wars is Darth Vader. He asked me to write a story about Star Wars and I told him he would have to help me with it. The only weird shows I ever watched had Abbott and Costello in them. Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein was one of them. It scared me, yes, but it was funny, and I remember I had two brothers, one on each side of me. Now it seems the geeks and their science fiction are taking over. All of a sudden its whats cool. I have to admit I was a nerd in school, but never a geek. Now if youre not a science-fiction geek, youre out of the loop. I went to see the second Twilight movie with my daughter and granddaughter. While they were both swooning over Edward and Jacob and making up their own fantasies in their heads, I was wondering why I paid money to see this movie and how come the wolves heads were abnormally large. Not to mention that a pale, pasty white, guy with red eyes is not attractive in any universe. Now Jacob on the other hand is a very good looking boy. But come on people, he changes into a wolf during the night. Wouldnt this discourage you just a tiny bit? But no, (spoiler alert), Bella, our heroine, decides to become a vampire herself. She gives up her normal life to suck blood and run around with the bats. Is she batty or what? I tried to write a novel a couple years ago, but it wasnt successful. My heroine only went to school and defied her parents. Maybe if her head spun around and she spit up pea soup while dating Big Foot it could have been made into a major motion picture.

RIVERLAND NEWS THE OTHER GUY LETTERS JERSEY GIRL SOCIAL SECURITY J anuary is Financial Wellness Month a great time to think about your own financial future. It also happens to be at this time that many people make resolutions for the New Year. Why not combine the two and make your own financial wellness a resolution for 2013? Here are our suggested resolutions for your financial wellness. Start your financial plan with your Social Security Statement. The online Statement is simple, easy to use, and provides estimates you should consider in planning for your retirement. It provides estimates for disability and survivors benefits, making the Statement an important financial planning tool. Your Statement allows you to review and ensure that your earnings are accurately posted to your Social Security record. This feature is important because Social Security benefits are based on average earnings over your lifetime. If the information is incorrect, or you have earnings missing from your record, you may not receive all the benefits to which you are entitled in the future. www.socialsecurity.gov/mystatement Work the numbers. Once you get your online Statement, you can use the other free resources provided by Social Security. Use our Retirement Estimator, where you can get a personalized, instant estimate of your future retirement benefits using different retirement ages and scenarios. Visit the Retirement Estimator at www.social security.gov/estimator Once you are in the know, choose to save. The earlier you begin your financial planning, the better off you will be. Social Security replaces about 40 percent of the average workers pre-retirement earnings. Most financial advisors say that you will need 70 percent or more of pre-retirement earnings to live comfortably. You also will need other savings, investments, pensions or retirement accounts to make sure you have enough money to live comfortably when you retire. Visit the Ballpark Estimator for tips to help you save. www.choosetosave.org/ballpark. Do some light reading. Learn more about Social Security, the benefit programs, and what they mean to you and your family, by browsing through our online library of publications. In particular, our publication entitled When To Start Receiving Retirement Benefits provides helpful information regarding the things you should consider when making a Financial wellness can be yours in 13 Geeks shall inherit the earth Fear not when, fear not why, fear not much while we are alive Life is for living, not living up tight, see ya somewhere up in the sky Fear not die, Ill be alive for a million years Bye-byes are not for legends, Im forever young, my name shall survive. Jay Z and Alphavilles Forever YoungThere is no comprehending the tragic death of Kyle Lay. The task is utterly impossible. The question of why is likely lingering in the minds of those who make up the Dunnellon High School student body. There is no explaining his death and why a young person would be taken away from his family and friends as his future lie ahead of him. I can relate to the youths as they grieve and ponder some of lifes biggest questions in the days, weeks and months to come. Its natural to ask why, its natural to grieve, to feel empty and angry, all at once or during individual phases. Twice as a teen, I dealt with the death of two classmates. The first time was toward the end of my freshman year. I recall the night so vividly, as my classmates and I were preparing to mark the end of our journey in junior high school and make the transition to high school. We would attend our last junior high school dance. My family and I were at the annual year-end sports banquet. As we sat in the cafeteria, waiting for the event to conclude, one of the local police detectives walked in and escorted one of the families outside. Puzzled, my father went outside to figure out what would be so pressing for our local law enforcement agencys lead detective to be in such a frenzy with a distraught look upon his face. My dad quickly found his answer. Not only had one of my classmates died in a deadly wreck, but so had one of my sisters classmates. Both the only children of one of our local police officers. Both gone in an instant when the elder of the two, Jeff, overcorrected his vehicle while he and his brother, Jody, were off to visit their grandparents. It rocked our community, not only the schools. Jeff would have been the class valedictorian; scheduled to attend Wichita State University in the fall, having earned a pretty prestigious scholarship. Jody would have been roaming the halls of the high school with us. Most of my classmates, as well as the underclass at our school, learned about their deaths at the school dance when the deejay made an ill-advised announcement, mispronouncing Jodys name at the end of the night.

I love Michael C. Hall and I heard so many good reviews about Dexter, so I tried to tune in one night. Only it was the episode where his sister found out that hes a serial killer. Thats about as far as I got. I thought Lord of the Rings was about a man with a jewelry fetish. I was hoping Twilight was a love story set at twilight. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo involves a whole lot more than a girl with a tattoo. OK, so Im not cool, I admit it. I wasnt cool in high school and Im certainly not cool now. But I cannot be the only person left in the universe that thinks these shows are ridiculous. Can I? I cant ask my dad, he hates all TV shows. I cant ask my mom, shed just say whatever makes my kids happy. My older brother loves science fiction and my younger brother loves anything that thrills and terrorizes. He says: The popularity of the Kardashian bunch and Bruce Jenners plastic surgery is way scarier than any horror flick. I already mentioned my daughters and granddaughter love this stuff and my grandson knows more about Star Wars trivia than Luke Skywalker. OK, then I am outnumbered. I am the odd man out. I am the only person left in this world that doesnt like dead people coming back to life. But wait a minute. My husband hates this stuff too. He cannot watch any of it. Guess I married the right partner. Im going to pop us a bowl of extra buttered popcorn and settle down with Finding Nemo. Yes its fictional and animals certainly cant talk, but you can guarantee I wont have nightmares tonight. Id never seen a teenage boy cry, but that was a night of firsts. I attended Jeff and Jodys wake, along with my sister. It was the first wake Id gone too. We both attended the funeral, a first for me as well. I can still recall sitting with classmates in the bleachers at one of the local churches/private schools where both boys had attended church and school for a short time. I remember watching as the caskets were closed. I walked home from the service that day, in shoes at least one size too small. Four years later, I lost another classmate in a tragic car accident. Toby had moved to Arizona prior to our freshman year, but had returned after graduating to visit with family and friends in the area. It was a joy to see him, catching up with each other and recalling old stories. Tobys death hit me harder, as we had grown up in the same neighborhood and attended school together through eighth grade. Hes a key reason I passed band class my seventh-grade year when I switched from playing trombone to percussion. I recall a friends dad driving my buddy, Joe, and I to St. Lukes Hospital to check on him. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Tobys dad, who had made the painful decision to remove his son from life support. My friend Joe served as a pallbearer, a task he struggled with as a young man, not even 18 yet. Joe struggled to cope with Tobys death for weeks. Perhaps, because he wasnt with our friend the night he was killed. He was supposed to have caught a ride home with him, instead opting to catch a ride with me because I had a later curfew. Then as a young man in my early 20s, our family was dealt a shocking, saddening blow with the death of my cousin. It was tough to cope with it. My cousin was two years younger than I was, preparing to attend a prestigious college in Illinois, but a crosscountry road trip to California was cut short in Nebraska when my cousin was ejected from a van in the middle of the night on a dark, desolate Nebraska highway. I cannot tell the students at Dunnellon High when the pain will go away. It will take time, it will take healing. What I can urge you to do is grieve, but more importantly remember the good times you shared with your friend Kyle. Remember his smile, his laugh and your friendship. Remember the good times. It is what will carry you through the dark days ahead. decision on when to collect retirement benefits. Many of our publications also are available in audio format and other formats.

Question: Is it illegal to laminate your Social Security card? Answer: No, it is not illegal, but its best not to laminate your card. Laminated cards make it difficult, if not impossible, to detect important security features. Also, your employer may refuse to accept it. The Social Security Act requires Social Security to issue cards that cannot be counterfeited. We incorporate many features to protect the cards integrity. That includes highly specialized paper and printing techniques some visible to the naked eye and some not. Further, we continue to explore and adopt new technologies that hamper duplication. Keep your Social Security card in a safe place with your other important papers. Do not carry it with you. Learn more at www.social security.gov/ssnumber.

I t was just before New Years and the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were relaxing after a busy week of toil and labor. Not paying much attention to my surroundings, I had immersed myself in a favorite book. As far as I am concerned, nothing compares to a favorite book when you are trying to relax and unwind. I turned the page and happened to notice on the other side of the room my wife was all a twitchy. I have seen this behavior before and I knew she was anxious to say something. I pretended not to notice. Finally, it was as if she exploded. I cant wait for the New Year. Arent you excited? I answered in the affirmative to try to keep the conversation as minimal as possible. No, I mean arent you really excited about the New Year? I knew if I was going to get back to my book I would have to let her say what was on her mind. According to her, the approaching New Year was going to be spectacular. Everything old, she explained to me, would be new again. We have been in this New Year for a couple of weeks now and, I will not contradict my wife, at least aloud, but this New Year looks suspiciously like the Old Year. I am not quite sure what she thought would be different this year, but to me it is just the old year run through again. And, that is good with me. I am not one of these persons that needs the latest flash in the pan. I quite prefer the tried and true. It was about two weeks after the New Year and my wife said, Ill be back in an hour or two, Im going shopping. It did not dawn on me at the time but about 10 minutes later, it did. The reason my wife was so excited about the New Year was that she was going to go out and buy some new clothes. After all, according to her calculations, the New Year deserves new clothing. I smiled as I thought about her going to the store trying on dresses, seeking one that would fit her both in size and in fancy. As for me, I am quite comfortable in my old clothes. They fit me just fine, thank you. Women have to look fine all the time. Men, on the other hand are not that particular about what they wear. I can wear the same shirt for days on end and feel just as comfortable as the first day I put it on. My clothing does not make me feel any younger. I go along with the saying that says you are only as old as you feel. Of course, I do have some of those Methuselah moments. Everything old was once new and if new last very long it ends up being old. Therefore, whatever is old was once new and whatever is new will one day be old. This is where most people make their mistake. They fail to see the relationship between old and new. For example, as much as our culture pretends to be youth oriented, it does everything to get old while looking young. I often have this conversation with my wife. I am not old, I am just getting older and my plans are to get older and older and older. The great object in life is to get as old as you possibly can while looking and feeling new. Nothing to me is sillier than a 40 year old trying to act 20. The mind may say 20, but the body really knows it is 40. If people would put the money they spend to look young in a 401(k) their golden years would truly be golden. How much money is spent each year on plastic surgery?

to know is, who in the world do they think they are fooling? Their mirror? Right after the New Years celebration, I got up one morning feeling terrific. There was a bounce in my step, a giggle on my tongue; I was feeling like I was 20 something. I had not felt this good since I cannot remember how long. Then it happened. No matter how good you might feel some day, there is always something or someone who can undermine that and put you in your proper place. My mistake was going into the bathroom. There in the bathroom for all the world to see, especially me is this ghastly object called a mirror. When I looked into the mirror, I was shocked to see I was not alone. I thought I had come into the bathroom by myself but there in the mirror was this old guy I hardly recognized. My first reaction was to ask him to leave the bathroom and then I noticed something. That person in the mirror was me! All of those exhilarating feelings dissipated as reality grabbed hold of my soul and soundly shook me. In my Bible reading that morning, I read what the apostle Paul said. And be renewed in the spirit of your minds; and that she put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4:23-24 KJV). Only God, in His wisdom, can create in me something that is truly new. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala. Call him at 866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att.net.

Those who knew Lay best, remembered the 17-year-old for his outgoing personality. He was always smiling, said Major Robert Gilliam, the top instructor for the schools Junior ROTC program. He was very well-liked, a well-respected member of the Corps. Its a very difficult time for us. Hell be sorely missed. Major Gilliam said what he will remember most about Lay is his friendly personality. He could always get a smile out of somebody, he explained. You dont always see that out of people. Major Gilliam said for those in the Junior ROTC program, the coming days and weeks ahead will be tough, but he stressed the importance of moving forward. You acknowledge what a tough loss this is, Major Gilliam said. But you do your best to help the kids out, discuss what Kyle meant to them. But you also have to stay on course and remain focused on what you have to do. Well be there for the kids. Upon hearing the news Friday night, first-year Principal Ken McAteer immediately asked the district to send extra counselors to the school to help students and staff in handling the loss of a student and classmate. He was very popular, very involved, especially with ROTC. He was a good-natured kid, said McAteer, who knew Lay from their days at West Port High School. Lay transferred to Dunnellon High in December 2011. McAteer said his death will be felt throughout the school. Its definitely something that hurts our school, our community, McAteer said. But, as a close-knit school, I realize how much support our staff and students will provide each other. McAteer explained how Lays death will have a major impact on the lives of the youths in the school, but itll be a positive impact. I think it brings home how precious life is, how we should embrace it every day we can, he explained. Its definitely a tragic event, but I think youll see how we rise from this and become better for it. While riding in the bed of a pick-up truck is already a Florida Statue, Lays stepfather, David Stone, said its not a law commonly enforced. He said through this tragedy, he hopes that can be changed. Im going to push the state legislature to make sure it is enforced, so other families do not have to go through this, he explained. Were going to try and turn this tragedy intoa positive for others. 8 Riverland News, Thursday, January 10, 2013 Best of the Best four years in a row HOURS: Mon.

The county is now accepting applications for its 2013 class. A free 10-week program, the Citizens Academy provides an opportunity for local residents and business owners to get an inside look at county government and its operations, services and challenges. Participants will attend sessions on a different department or facet of county government each week starting in March. Sessions last approximately three hours and include presentations, tours and hands-on activities at various county locations. Citizens Academy Class of 2012 graduate Denise Azis said that the program answered a lot of questions that affect everyday life. I have a better understanding of how the essential 911 service works. I can better appreciate what the fire and rescue people do. I also understand the solid waste and utilities, she said. Its also good knowing where the various sites are located, and I know that if I called any of them (county staff) with a question, they would be kind and helpful. Fellow Class of 2012 grad Rich Lambrecht noted that as a supervisor of his local community development district, he is frequently contacted by neighbors who have questions about government services and responsibilities the answers often involve Marion County government. He encourages others to take part in the program. While its good to have an opinion on the effectiveness of our county government and county commissioners, it is even better to have an understanding of what they are doing and how they are doing it, he said. Marion County residents or business owners ages 18 and older are eligible to attend. All participants must complete a registration form and be accepted prior to attending and go to a minimum of eight of the 10 sessions to graduate.

Members of the Florida Chapter of the Christian Motorcyclists Association bow their heads in prayer at Ernie Mills Park. First United Methodist Churchs four-day Community Revival Celebration kicked off Saturday with somber news as bikers and church members mourned the loss of John Mihok, the event organizer and member of First United Methodist Church for the past five years, who died Friday night after a lengthy battle with cancer. It was fantastic, said Ginnie Costello, a member of First United Methodist Church. Now its turned into a memorial ride. John worked real hard for this. He wanted to be a part of it, and he still is. Costellos husband, Kenny, said the impact of Mihoks death would be felt throughout the revival. I think its going to be a really great first night, he said. Beverly Snyder, a fellow church member who worked on the Evangelism Committee with Mihok, praised his efforts. He worked tirelessly on this, she said. This was his baby. He saw it the whole way through, thats what his goal was. Hes meant everything to our church. He was very involved, very passionate about helping others come to know our Lord and Savior. Snyder said though he wasnt there in person, she knew he was there in spirit. I know hes looking down upon us with a big smile on his face, she said. I know hed be proud of what he accomplished. He left us with the blueprints for what we needed to accomplish with this. He believed it was what God wanted him to do before he left us.

About half aised their hand. That means that the other half were new to the church. That is what it is about, in part, introducing our church to others. Organizers of the concert said it is their hope to schedule a couple of gospel concerts each year in Dunnellon.

T he quote from Edmond Burke, Reading without reflecting is like eating without digesting, is very interesting. Parents need to read with their children on a daily basis. If you have a computer, have the children read articles from the daily paper to you while you are preparing dinner. Then ask them questions about what they are reading. Some questions to ask might be: Where is the event occurring on the globe, is it far from here? Do you agree with the article? Give me three reasons to support your belief, or maybe, What would you do in that instance? Here are some facts to consider about how important reading skills are for your child: Approximately 50 percent of the nations unemployed youths age 16 to 21 are functional illiterate, with virtually no prospects of obtaining good jobs. When the state of Arizona projects how many prison beds it will need, it factors in the number of kids who cannot read well in the fourth grade. 60 percent of Americas prison inmates are illiterate and 85 percent of all juvenile offenders have reading problems. Students who report having all four types of reading materials (books, magazines, newspapers and Survey: Reading is critical DMS students prep for Academic Brain Bowl D unnellon Middle School students, who will participate in the Academic Brain Bowl Competition Saturday, Jan. 26, at Vanguard High School, will have practice Monday, Jan. 14, to continue preparing for the event.

The senior standout scored a school record 43 points, including 19 in the fourth quarter Friday night against Crystal River High School as the Lady Tigers rallied from an 18-point third quarter deficit for a 59-51 victory. The win pushed Dunnellon into a three-way tie for first place in the district standings as the Lady Tigers improved to 8-9 this season and avenged a 3-point loss to the Lady Pirates from earlier this year. For Jackson, a former cheerleader who began playing basketball as an eighth-grader, the historic night came as a surprise. The 5-foot-9 shooting guard broke Shannon Williams 1986 record of 41 points in a game. Williams was a prolific player for the Lady Tigers in the 1980s, earning Ocala Star-BannerPlayer of the Year honors in 1986. Williams finished her high school career with 2,170 points and 1,553 rebounds. Additionally, she averaged 25.6 points and 19 rebounds as a senior and was a threetime All-American at Valdosta State. Its awesome, she said of the accomplishment. It really didnt seem like Id scored that many. Even her coach agreed. It just didnt seem like she was scoring that much, Dunnellon girls basketball coach Tony Maldonado explained, noting the Lady Pirates defense opted to forgo double-team coverage or even a Box-and-One defensive strategy.

To participate fully in society and the workplace in 2020, citizens will need powerful literacy abilities that until now have been achieved by only a small percentage of the population.

You truly make a difference in the lives of our students each and every day. Special to the Riverland News ASH M AN continued from page 14 S M ALLRIDG E continued from page 14 options open. Thats one of the differences I keep referring to about the difference in this team. We have some great young talent that has been a plus for this team and Tanicka. Yet, if you ask Maldonado about Jackson and what she means to the team, he sees more than the teams top offensive catalyst or No. 1 defender. (She averages a team-best seven rebounds per game and 3.8 steals per contest.) The first-year coach sees her as an on-thecourt coach, directing not only the teams resurgence this season, but a crop of younger talent likely to set the tone for Dunnellons future as a potential powerhouse program. She is legitimate as far as her basketball skills, Maldonado said. Her basketball IQ is very high. I call her coach Jackson, because when shes not taking shots and scoring, shes directing the other players on the court. It is a valuable asset to the team. Indeed it is, because unlike last season, Jackson has more help on the offensive end of the court, even though the statistics might prove otherwise. As a junior, Jackson accounted for 35 percent of the Lady Tigers offense. Her figure this season, Maldonado said, is about the same. But he points to the numbers of Jacksons supporting cast to show shes no longer carrying the team but has a steady supporting cast despite their youth. With quick improvement from the crop of younger players, not only are Jackson and the Lady Tigers winning, but the senior standout admits shes having more fun this season than in years past because she doesnt feel the pressure to have big games. Oh yes, definitely, said Jackson, whose averaging a team best 17.6 points while shooting a blistering 68 percent from the field this season.The girls have gotten better, we have fun together. It is easier not having all of that pressure but there is still the pressure of closing out games when we need to. As the season draws closer to the district tournament and a potential state playoff berth, Jackson is taking her time choosing her college destination. She admits shes leaving her options open for the right offer that will allow her to pursue her college education. Her long-term goal is to become a dentist, with the dream of playing professionally in the WNBA or overseas in one of the many European leagues. I would love to be able to do that someday, said Jackson, who has scored 20 or more points in a game eight times this season, including the past three. Maldanado added Jacksons collegiate career will likely continue at the NCAA Divison II or III level. Shell play at the next level, thats for sure, he said.
