State sets goals to restore springs The underwater world of Rainbow Springs was a different place in 1955. Photos from that year show crystal-clear water and healthy aquatic vegetation with little or no algae. More recent photos show reduced water clarity and algae smothering aquatic vegetation along with invasive hydrilla and lyngbya. Nutrients, particularly nitrates, were blamed for the degradation of the Rainbow Springs Group and the Rainbow River. Long-term records of water quality showed nitrate levels in those waters have increased substantially. In 2009, the river was declared impaired on the basis of nitrate readings. With a consultant, the Rainbow Springs Working Group developed a restoration plan for the springs and river and goals for reducing nitrates. But in June 2011, the Department of Environmental Protection stated it would not be able to fund Spring Working Groups in upcoming year due to reductions in the state budget. Now springs are back in fiscal favor, and this month the department announced the adoption of restoration goals for the Rainbow Springs Group and the Rainbow River. These goals, or Total Maximum Daily Loads, are pollution Photo courtesy of Miss Ellie, Wonder PicsDunnellon High School junior Jody Weber poses with her steer, Pretty Boy, at the Southeastern Youth Fair last week.

DHS students steer sells for record $11,000 at SEYF The 2013 Southeastern Youth Fair came to a close Sunday, but not without plenty of local students earning championship honors. And one local youths name will likely be spoken with awe for years to come. For good reason, too. For the first time in SEYF history, a steer sold for $9 a pound, and all told, the steer brought in a price of $11,000, a record haul. That steer, Pretty Boy, belonged to Jody Weber, a Dunnellon High School junior.. When the final bid was announced, jaws dropped when the auctioneer hollered sold!

Moseley, a former Army Ranger, built the rifle himself. Lock and Load: Former Ranger plies new trade Hunting, shooting and personal security are the prime reasons people own guns, but if the guns break or jam the owners usually have trouble finding a certified gunsmith to fix the problem. About a year ago David Moseley, with his experience and expertise, opened the CDM Arms LLC gun shop in Dunnellon to help gun owners fix their broken weapons. He earned some of his experience as a U.S. Army Airborne Ranger from 1982 until 1988. As a Ranger he went to the Soviet Union on a classified mission to rescue a downed pilot when he was only 21 years old. It took me three days to find him in the woods and it was 80 miles from where his plane went down, Moseley said. Most 21-year-olds today are not mature enough to do something like that. Moseley has a lot of interesting stories about his time as a Ranger, but most cant be printed because they are classified. I was shot and stabbed while a Ranger during the Cold War, he said. Everything I did was classified. After he left the military, Moseley owned a sawmill in Georgia David Moseley becomes licensed gunsmith AUGIE SALZER For the Riverland News CATHERINE JAGER For the Riverland News See LOCK page 11 Consultant to examine Greenlight In an effort to better bolster the business plan for Greenlight Dunnellon Communications, the Dunnellon City Council is looking toward an outside resource to help accomplish just that. However, city officials didnt have to look far. They found one right in their backyard. The City Council on Monday night approved a $15,000 contract with J.M. Pierpont Consulting LLC. The Dunnellon-based company, run by John Pierpont, will provide Dunnellon city officials with a business plan for Greenlight Dunnellon Communications as well as see where the fiber-tothe-home program stands financially. Pierpoint Consulting will perform the study, which is comprised of Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3 activities. Work performed pursuant to Phase 3 shall be performed by the consultant on an individual task order basis as deemed appropriate by the city given the outcomes of Phase 2 and as mutually agreed in writing before the work is commenced by consultant. According to the agreement approved Monday, Pierpont Consulting LLC and the city recognize that consultants services are specific to the Greenlight and city transaction and are not assignable. Pierpont and the city, through mutual agreement, may expand the scope of services and or projects to be performed for the city or Greenlight.

1,290 pounds. Weber admitted she was extremely surprised she won Grand Champion. At the initial weigh-in, Pretty Boy weighed 740 pounds and at the final weigh-in he tipped the scales at a whooping 1,290 pounds, which means he gained a total of 550 pounds in the duration of this project. Weber plans on showing a steer next year as well. I didnt even think I would win my class, she explained. I figured we would at least place though. Weber, who has been showing at the Southeastern Youth Fair for eight years, has shown a total of four hogs, four lambs, two heifers and five steers. Out of the variety of animals she has shown throughout the years, her favorite are the steers. My favorite part of the fair is that everyone is so close, its like a big family Weber said. You get to hang out with all of your friends from other schools and do what you love. This year, Weber and her friend, Kaylie Hiers, named their steers together. Webers steer was named Pretty Boy and Hiers was named Swag. To top it off they had a banner made to hang above their stall that read Pretty Boy Swag. But Weber wasnt the lone successful Dunnellon exhibitor at the fair. Kaila McKee won her class at the steer show. Brittany Landers won lamb and hog skill-a-thon, as well as Premier Exhibitor. Landers also won every class in her dog competitions. Elizabeth Wright won Senior Showmanship in the hog show. any new project or task. All told, the project will likely take up to six months to complete. Though the first two phases are expected to be done in about five to six weeks. Pierpont has the experience to do the job, city officials said. The longtime Dunnellon resident, who is also Councilman Erik Collops father-in-law, was a longtime employee of Florida Power/Progress Engery/Duke Energy. As part of his responsibilities throughout his career with the power company, Pierpont was responsible for developing business plans for his employer. Pierpont was first approached by Collop to see what his thoughts were about striking a deal with city officials to provide a business plan for the city. Collop who was absent at Mondays meeting, made it clear at the Councils Feb. 20 workshop, that he would not have voted if he had been present. I just introduced everyone and let them go from there, Collop told his colleagues and the audience. Pierpont and City Manager Lisa Algiere met to discuss a plan of action. That plan was then pitched to the City Council to see how his company could help Greenlight succeed. Basically, as a longtime resident of Dunnellon, I want to see Greenlight succced, Pierpont told the City Council. Phil Reagan, an employee of Pierponts consulting firm, brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the job. He was a longtime employee of Gainesville Regional Utility, overseeing a number of their enterprise operations including the citys own Internet-based provider. What you have here is very, very exciting, Reagan told the Council. It blows my socks off. Youre on the cutting edge of fiber optics. Reagan told the Council it has numerous options it could look into to make Greenlight a highly successful and highly profitable operation. There are tremendous opportunities for this system, he said. Mayor Nathan Whitt, who voted for the deal, expressed his appreciation and gratitude for those willing to help out, even if it does come at a cost to the city. Mayor Whitt pointed out the outstanding debt, specifically on the Series C Bond for Greenlight. That bond, which is more than $1 million, is due in November. Thats the glaring elephant in the room, Mayor Whitt said. If we can get that off our backs, we really have a chance to make this work. This next six months is crucial. We need to wipe the slate clean with that Series C Bond. In other action, the Council: Approved the mayors signature on a grant received from FDEP (Florida Department of Environment) for $637,437 from the Small Community Wastewater Facilities Construction grant through FDEP for Rio Vista. This would leave an estimated $164,083 to be paid by the 62 sewer customers in Rio Vista, which will be bonded over a 15to 20-year period, officials said. As the city pays back the bond those customers will be assessed their portion. Approved the reappointments of Michelle Lewis and Gloria Williams as trustees to the Police Officers and Firefighters Pension Board. Both had served previous two-year terms, which were set to expire. Both, according to information provided by City Clerk Dawn Bowne, had consented to serve another two-year term. Their appointments were effective Feb. 25. Appointed Viola Soffe to a three-year term as an alternate on the Historic Board. Soffe had recently been appointed to fill the unexpired term of Dane Meyers. That term ends March 8. Appointed Ronald Senykoff to the Tree Board to fill the upcoming vacancy left by Jan DeWitt, whos term expires March 8. DeWitt was appointed as the senior alternate. Approved a contract with Minerva for $31,425 for support with Middleware, a software program that is the operating system, which controls the video system for Greenlight Communications. Approved a contract with Trenchless Supply for $5,900 for conduit as part of the continued system construction for Rolling Ranch Estates. Approved a contract with Power & Tel for $12,851 for handholes for the continued system construction for Rolling Ranch Estates. 2 Riverland News, Thursday, February 28, 2013 A member of the Florida Press Association352-489-2731 352-489-6593 (Fax) The Riverland News serves Dunnellon and the surrounding areas: Blue Cove, Chatmire, Hills of Ocala, Lake Tropicana, Rainbows End, Rainbow Lakes Estates, All the Rainbow Springs Area, Rio Vista and Vogt Springs.The Riverland News is delivered on Thursday to subscribers by our carriers and mail.

Tuner showed her 260-pound hog Maxi Friday, Feb. 22, during the Swine Competition. Turners hog was named Grand Champion. Getting to the winners circle takes quite a bit of effort. After you have raised and cared for your pig, your animal has to win its classification. This year, there were 10 classifications of swine with more than 200 pigs vying to win this portion of the competition. The next step in the competition is between the 10 pigs that have each won their classifications. Turner and her Maxi won the Grand Championship. Earlier in the week at the SEYF, Turner won Best in Class and Best in Show for her artistic submission of a platypus she created under the guidance of DMS art instructor Doug Henry. Turners platypus faithfully displays the characteristics of the real animal.

What would you do for a Klondike bar? One 43-year-old Citrus Springs mans search for that chocolate-coated ice cream, so rich, so thick led him to stuffing one down his pants before leading two Dunnellon Police Department officers on a foot chase Saturday night through the Circle K parking lot, leading to charges of petit theft and resisting arrest without violence, a Dunnellon Police Department arrest report stated. The report stated Johnny H. Shutts was charged with both counts Feb. 23 after an incident in which Shutts took off on foot after eyewitnesses reported Shutts took a Four Loko alcoholic beverage and a Klondike ice cream bar and left the store without paying for the items. According to the report, the store clerk observed Shutts take a Four Loko alcoholic beverage and then walk toward the ice cream cooler. At this time, Cpl. Bruce Arnold arrived inside the store and observed Shutts place a Klondike Ice Cream bar into his pants to conceal the item and exit the store. The store clerk, along with other witnesses, said Shutts then left the store without paying for the items. The report stated at this time, Officer Mike Anger arrived on scene when Shutts attempted to flee north on foot. Both Cpl. Arnold and Anger gave chase, catching Shutts while having to wrestle him to the ground. According to the report, Shutts refused to place his hands behind his back after multiple commands. Shutts continued to resist by tucking his hands under his chest and refusing to place his hands behind his back. Authorities had to retrieve Shutts hands from underneath his body to handcuff him. The report stated Shutts was transported to the Marion County Jail. His bond was set at $2,500. According to Marion County Jail records, Shutts was charged with an additional count of second degree petit theft, third subsequent offense. His bond for that charge was set at $2,000. At press time, Shutts remained in the Marion County Jail. reduction targets designed to drive nitrate reductions so the spring systems meet water quality standards and support healthy biological communities. The department has identified specific pollution problems and established fourpollutioncutting goalsaffecting about 250 springs. Another fivegoals are scheduled for adoption this year to help restore 65 additional Florida springs. The departmenthas made springs restoration a statewide priority and are working to address nutrient impacts to these unique water bodies, DEP Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. said. We have seen a continued increase in nutrients in Floridas springs since the 1960s and we are taking action to reverse this trend. Setting goals was the first step. The state will now forge restoration plans in conjunction with local stakeholders before the end of the year. These plans will identify projects necessary to reduce sources of pollution, resources necessary to implement them and schedules for carrying them out. Nitrate loadings must be cut by 82 percent for Rainbow Springs, said Drew Bartlett, director of DEPs Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration. The problems are complicated. They werent created overnight and they wont be solved tomorrow. While the department is the lead agency on developing the goals, the Southwest Florida Water Management District was involved in the process. We have worked to provide date and technical support, said Veronica Craw, springs and environmental flows manager. We also provided comments on their draft documents.Riverland News, Thursday, February 28, 2013 3 Solution to puzzle on Page 8 Seven Days A Week Rain or Shine Call to see how you can receive 2 Weeks Free352-563-5655 769453 The #1 Provider of News and Advertising Information in Citrus County 000E4CR Play our 9 Hole Course with a cart only $1 7 00 Get another 9 H oles (on the same day) 000E4BN (L IMITED TO ONE SPECIAL PER DAY E XPIRES 3/15/13.)

Lisa Ann Barfield, 48, was charged Friday after an auditor with the Marion County School Board revealed the former site manager for afterschool programs at Dunnellon Elementary School stole $851 in funding from the program. According to the report, Barfield admitted to taking checks and money orders from parents of students who were enrolled in the after-hours program. Barfield was the site manager for the program for seven years. Barfield wrote the word cash on those checks and money orders and used that money to pay her bills and to pay for her childs enrollment in the after-hours program, said Judge Cochran, Marion County Public Information Officer. The district is seeking restitution in the full amount, according to Kevin Christian, public relations officer for the school district. Employee records show Barfield was hired in August 2006 as an extended day aide. She became site manager at Dunnellon Elementary in August 2008 and has remained there since. Her evaluations show positive comments and no negative actions. We expect our employees to set the example for our community when it comes to fiscal accountability, Christian said. When that example is bad, we have to take action. The community expects nothing less, and so does the district. Barfield was booked Friday into the Marion County Jail. Her bond was set at $2,000.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, February 28, 2013 R IVER VIEWS The Newspaper built on Community Pride. Publisher Gerry Mulligan Regional Manager John Provost Editor Jeff Bryan Member of the Florida Press Association RIVERLAND NEWS Are city officials paying attention to what folks say?I have been following, with interest, the Riverland News Letters to the Editor generated by residents of Rainbow Springs in response to the Dunnellon City Councils imposition of its predatory funding program directed at that community. Obviously, there are some very bright, capable, competent and articulate people living in Rainbow Springs. Is anyone at Dunnellon City Hall actually reading any of this material? Alan Abele Dunnellon City of Dunnellon is on road toward bankruptcyIt is evident to me that the city of Dunnellon has been, and is being, grossly mismanaged. The numbers say so. Residents within and outside the boundaries in close proximity to the city say so. Then why has Dunnellon City Manager Lisa Algiere not been fired? In business, a CEO that has failed in their fiduciary responsibilities or other management duties would be fired by the Board of Directors. The City Council of Dunnellon, Dunnellons Board of Directors, has swept the blatantly obvious mismanagement of the city under the rug, shrugged their shoulders, then renewed Ms. Algieres contract. What are they thinking? Citizen input falls on deaf ears or is met with insolent responses like because we can. Dunnellon must do better or face the consequences of being declared bankrupt, which is eventually inevitable. Clayton S. Ellsworth Jr.Lake TropicanaFundraiser for local woman a success despite weather The family and friends of Stephanie Anderson wish to thank all those who came out Sunday, Feb. 17, to the Blue Gator for her fundraiser despite the cold weather. Without you and our generous supporters, we never would have raised more than $1,500 in three hours. We especially need to thank, the Blue Gator, Riverland News, Lowes of Inverness, Jimmy Sparks Band, Scallys Lube & Go, Vernon Martin Salon, Sweetbay, Big Lick Farm, The Force is strong with these young ones W ell, its time to go grocery shopping for the escarole, acini de pepe, and all the stuff to make those little meatballs. These are just some of the ingredients in my homemade Italian Wedding Soup I make for my brothers, Bob, birthday every year. This was a recipe my grandmother used to make for him when she was alive and now Ive taken it over. Likewise, Bobs favorite food is pasta, any kind of pasta. So my mom will make stuffed shells to go along with the soup and that has been the menu for his birthday for the past few years. Well have a quiet party with just the family. He wouldnt want us talking about it or writing about it and he may not even like me writing this column. Yet, I dont want to omit him from my memoirs. You never hear me saying much about my younger brother and he likes it that way. Although most of the members of my family like being the center of attention, he is certainly not one of them. Robert prefers flying under the radar. He is quiet, laid back, cool, calm and collected. Sometimes I wish I could be more like that. We are only two years apart, so growing up we always hung out together. I used to force him to play Barbies with me when nobody else was available. On rainy days, we would always play board games or find something to do. We made up games too ball against the house, was one of our favorites. Im sure we fought like all brothers and sisters do, yet none really stand out to me. I remember the first time I saw Bob get angry, although it takes a lot to get him to that point. He was probably 9 or 10 at the time. We had ridden our bikes down to the lake and this pesky kid named Joe wouldnt leave him alone. He had already tried to grab his bike several times. All of a sudden Bob threw his bike down, balled up his fist and hit the kid. Way to go, Bob. That kid never bothered him again. Bob is somewhat of a loner, but he likes it that way. Where I cannot even go to Ocala by myself, he travels the country all alone. I do envy that ability. Sometimes I look at him and wonder if hes the milkmans son. Hes light, where were all dark. Hes quiet, where were all noisy. Hes slightly tall and thin, were all short and round. But he definitely resembles my mothers side of the family that doesnt look Italian at all. Bob is one of the kindest people I know. Hes loyal, helpful OPINIONS INVITED The opinions expressed in Riverland News editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.

THE OTHER GUY LETTERS JERSEY GIRL TIME TO SMILE F acebook has been all a flutter with videos of our northern neighbors trudging through mountains of snow filled streets. Better them than us. Many of my relatives and friends posted photos and videos of waist high snowbanks and creative snow creations. Most bemoaned the hours spent shoveling. It is not a fun task. Within an hour, you are hot and sweaty, yet your feet are frozen. It makes for a strange sensation. The other day, I logged on to Facebook and found a video that my brother, Bill, in Alabama had found on YouTube. It is from East Main Street in my home town of Bridgeport, Conn. Excited to see my old home town, I clicked on the video under which my brother had posted My home state. Oh my, did I get an earful! The video consists of a woman filming the crazies going up and down her unplowed street. She comments on the various goings on: people slipping and sliding, near accidents and outrage at snowplows. Any Northerner can tell you they have a love-hate relationship with a snowplow. They have a very distinct sound: the ching, ching, ching of the chains sounds like Santa and his reindeer. Then there is a heavy thud when the plow drops. It is preceded by the screeeeeech of the metal plow pushing the snow. This is a reassuring sound at 2 oclock in the morning. Its nice to know your street is being taken care of. It is the sound of your tax dollars at work. This, of course, is the love relationship. The hate comes the next morning and you have just spent three hours in a cold silence shoveling your car out of a snowbank. Ching, ching, ching! No! The snowplow takes its second pass through your street and pushes all the snow you shoveled back onto your car. Aagghh! The curse words, snowballs and even shovel-laden fists begin to fly. Curse words. This brings me back to the video. The womans commentary is very funny, but it is laced with the most profane and politically incorrect language I have heard in a long time. It was like listening to an Eddie Murphy performance. The ironic part is she makes fun of the low lifes on the street while every word out of her mouth begins with an F. As someone who enjoys a crass video, I re-posted the video with a disclaimer Contains extremely inappropriate and politically incorrect language. My niece Kelsey also re-posted it with a NSFW (not suitable for work) warning. Shortly after, Bill called and asked why we did that. Lights. Camera. Action. A Bob by any other name B y far and away, in a galaxy far, far away, I might add, Star Wars has been, and always will be, my favorite movie. Long before Id seen the movie, I had a hoard of Star Wars action figures, enough to take on a legion of Storm Troopers and wipe them out with my blaster, light saber or simply by using the Force. I was 8 1/2 years old before Id seen the original Star Wars. It was the winter of 1983 and I was a second grader at Washington Elementary School. The benefit of Midwestern winters is the occasional snow day; however, much like a hurricane you would know a storm was coming, just never where or how bad it would hit. I had a dilemma. HBO was still in its infancy, one channel, not the six or seven it has nowadays. Back then, and this might come as a shock to the younger generation, catching a flick on HBO required deft precision and luck, or prayer, as in my case. HBO planned to air Star Wars twice in February. Both times were not in my favor, a late-night showing on a school night and a midmorning airtime during school hours. The only way I would see what I considered my favorite movie, which Id yet to see, was for a snow day and the forecast, much like the show times, were not in my favor. I prayed hard the night before, pleading with God for a snow day. I wasnt sure if my mother was more concerned at the thought of having three kids stuck at home, cooped up in the house for the day, or the chance of me being disappointed if God didnt answer my prayer that worried her more. My prayer was answered. I was able to finally watch the 6-year-old film, which has a large cult following. While Im a fan and watch the original trilogy, Im not a Star Wars freak. You know the ones who don the costumes and attend comic book conventions and other type gatherings? Of course, I probably wouldnt object to doing so. I had always looked forward to the day when my own children, particularly my boys, would develop an interest in Star Wars. Id attempted years ago to have them watch the films with me, with little interest. Like the Rebel Alliance, I had not abandoned all hope but most Star Wars junkies would have found my lack of faith disturbing. Within the past six months, Jackson and Jayden have taken a keen interest in the fight between good and evil and balance in the galaxy, largely in part because of Angry Birds. For those of you unfamiliar with Angry Birds, its a game in which you shoot a variety of animated birds at pigs stacked See LETTERS page 5 See JERSEY page 5 Audrey Beem Jeff Bryan Editor See OTHER page 7 Kathleen Wallace See TIME page 5

and reliable. Hes the voice of reason. Like I said, calm, cool and collected. When I get lost I call him. He never gets frantic and he keeps me calm. Yet theres so much more to Bob than meets the eye. He may only say 20 words the whole time youre with him yet he has such strong opinions on everything and has so much to say. He just has to feel comfortable in order to say it. Bob is very intuitive. Hes usually a good judge of character. He has one of the best senses of humors ever. Whenever were together you can be sure well end up laughing over something. Hes so good with children probably because he has such a gentle nature. Whenever we have a gettogether you can usually find him taking care of the kids. All kids warm up to him and love him. I hope he can have a few of his own one day. Nobody is closer to us or knows us better than our siblings. I know my two brothers inside and out. I know their good points and their bad. I can almost always tell you how theyre going to act or what theyre going to say before it even happens. Im sure they can do the same for me. Bob has been there for me when Ive needed rides, money, conversation and hugs. You name it hes always there. I thank God every day for my family and my two precious brothers. I know, without a doubt, theyll always have my back and I love them very much. He aint heavy. Hes my brother. Well, he may be heavy after all that soup and pasta. Repeat Boutique, Oakride Equine Training Center of Morriston, Pine Ridge Golf Club, Sparrows Tavern and All-State Insurance. We thank you all, so very much. Lori WentlingDunnellon Churchs inaugural concert a successAs pastor of Cross at The River Cowboy Church I would like to give a big cowboy sized thank you to all those who came out to support our first-ever special event featuring Susie McEntire and her husband, Mark. We had folks come from as far away as Orlando and Tampa and Leesburg. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and many commented they want us to bring McEntire back again. Im looking forward to doing this again next year. Every community has something special about it. Here, we have community spirit, which comes out and supports those special events that benefit everyone in the community. Dunnellon is that kind of community and we at Cross at the River Cowboy Church love being a small part of it. This is one of the things that stood out most to Susie and Mark, our smalltown community support. I would be remiss not to say they very much enjoyed the inner action at both the pre-concert meet-and-greet for the sponsors as well as the audience participation, before during and after the concert. They were both outgoing and friendly signing autographs and taking pictures with several fans after the concert. Thank you to Mathew Baillargeon from Boomtown Media, who without his help this event never would have happened. He got online ticket sales going as well as served as the liaison between us and Cadence Bank. A great big thank you to Pastor Russ Randall and First Baptist Church of Dunnellon for the use of its church and cafeteria and all their staff that were there to meet our needs setting up prior to the concert as well as to Paul and Jeff Bass, who handled the sound for the concert. We would like to give a very special thank you to Charlene Williams and the staff at Cadence Bank, which sold more than 100 tickets. Thank you also to Police Chief Joanne Black who arranged for the security for Susie and Mark and Officer Aaron German who provided it. Thank you to Mayor Nathan Whitt who took time out to meet Susie and Mark and brought Susie and Mark a Certificate of Recognition from the city, which was presented by Chief Black. We must thank Anna Lee Cannon, who presented Susie with a bouquet of roses provided by Marthas florist. We would like to give a heart felt thank you to the following corporate sponsors: Captain Bobs, Bluegator, Audiable Hearing, Cadence Bank, Comfort Keepers, Grumbles House, Edward Jones/Justin Yancey, Frye Tool Rental, Gunters Farm and Feed, Insurance Center of Dunnellon, PCS and Parts, Butler Multi Service, Rainbow River Canoe and Kayak, Aquatic Wilderness Adventures, The Village Crier, Sweetbay, WalMart, Skeets BBQ of Beverly Hills and Boomtown Media for providing food and drinks for the meet and greet.

He said: theres no sound on the video, so what are you talking about? Oh, no! I asked Bill if he figured out how to find the sound button on his new iPad he got for Christmas. They dont come with owners manuals, so its understandable. I said: You better find the button and listen to it, because it is filled with curse words. There is a large gasp of air. What? I ask. He said I sent the video to all my friends from church. Oops! There is another video that was posted that day. It was a video Kelsey took of all of us sitting around the pool in the warm sunlight enjoying a cocktail. My brother, Tim, came up with the idea. It was a payback video. My niece, Rose, likes to tell us we live in the middle of nowhere. She lives a Sex and the City cosmopolitan lifestyle. She does not understand the joys of a quiet life. I give her 15 more years in the rat race and she will appreciate the middle of nowhere. So, while they shoveled snow, we basked in the sunlight. As my brother commented in the video they have snow shovels and we have no shovels! Kelsey posted the video. Some people had a good laugh and said we will get a pay-back video when we have our next hurricane. Others thought we were cruel. I re-posted it with the title A mean video for our northern relatives. My cousin, Sherry, who was also in the video posted: It wasnt meant to be mean, we were just having fun! Rose posted: My neighbor froze to death in his driveway not so funny now! Well yes, it was still a funny video because we didnt know about your neighbor and he probably had a heart attack, died and his body froze. Another relative said she would no longer post on Facebook because people were so insensitive. That selfimposed banning didnt last long she has to post every time she takes a breath. A long time ago a friend told me what to do with people who cant take a joke. I cant repeat it in a family friendly newspaper. Ask the woman in the first video she will tell you what to do with em!

So when the boys discovered my box set of the original trilogy, they just had to watch it. In went the first tape, and as the words appeared on the screen, I read the opening dialogue to them. As the characters started to appear, the questions began to fill the room quicker than a Senate confirmation hearing. Where are the birds daddy? Jayden said. There arent birds in this one, I said. Whos that mean guy in the suit? Jackson asked. Which suit? I responded. The black one, they said in unison. Thats Darth Vader, I pointed out. Hes mean, Jackson said, with Jayden pointing out, hes scary, too. Yes, hes not very nice, I said, soaking up the inquisitive nature of them both. As we made our way toward the end of the first film, Jackson popped up out of his seat and handed me the next movie. We need to watch this one next daddy, he said, as he was unwrapping a Christmas present. Again, I put the tape into the VCR and we sat down. Off I went to make popcorn when they shouted. Daddy, you need to read this! I strolled into the bedroom, as they had sprawled onto the floor. I read the opening dialogue and we settled in with our snacks. Daddy, is this your favorite movie, ever? they asked. As The Empire Strikes Back unfolded, the questions again came out like a strike from the Death Star. Darth Vader is mean, Jayden pointed out. Yes he is, I again said. Whys he so mean? they asked. You have to watch all of the movies to understand, I told them. Look Daddy, theres another movie, Jackson pointed out. We cant go to sleep yet. We have to watch all of them. At that point, I was reminded of what Obi-Wan Kenobi once said: the Jedi mind trick only works on the weakminded, chuckling as I inserted Return of the Jedi into the VCR player, amused at the fact my boys had managed to escape their customary bedtime. Half way through, Jackson and Jayden asked if Star Wars was my favorite movie. Yes, yes it is, I said. Its ours, too they told me as they snuggled up next to me. May the Force be with them, for many years to come.

GAIGE EVANS/For the Riverland NewsSenior Michael Chung performs yo-yo tricks Feb. 20 to earn the top honors in Dunnellon High Schools annual Talent Show. DHS students show off talents, skills in annual event Eleven brave souls stood up in front of a crowd of 57 paying audience members Wednesday, Feb. 20, for Dunnellon High Schools Tigers Got Talent talent show, put on by the schools Drama Department. Serenity Skillman was the master of ceremonies for the night, or emcee, for the second year in a row. The judges included: Tracy Baldeo (returning community judge), Daisy Torres (faculty judge) and Nicholas Rodriguez (last years winner, and the showcase talent). Starting off the show was Austin Holsinger and Mary Jokinen performing an instrumental version of Linkin Parks Burn it Down, followed by Ms. Erin Dormody signing her performance of I Was Here by Beyonc, which she dedicated to the students of DHS. Next up was Katie Wallace singing Immortal by Evanessence, which thereafter led to the shows first and only performance skit done by Kaitlyn Hanley, Heather Curtis and Lacey Ford portraying their version of Epic Meal Time, an Internet-based comedy series. Last, before the 10-minute intermission, was a crowd pleasing belly dance performance by Ariel Buchko to the song Tamr Henna. Shortly after, the last faculty performer, Jason Dobson, sang and played the song, People Get Ready, originally by the Impressions. Then, the second signing performer, Kayla Reed, performed In The Light by DC Talk, succeeded by Randi Jerrell doing a breathtaking performance of Sheryl Crows The First Cut is the Deepest. Finally, the show was wrapped up by Eddie Terrero singing and playing keyboard to an R&B melody, and Michael Chung doing a Yo-Yo choreographed performance to Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO. While the judges took five minutes to tally up the scores, showcase performer Nickolas Rodriguez began his performance from his seat at the judges table, and ended there, too. Directly after, all the contestants were gathered up on the stage once more to have the winners announced. Those to take home the gold were: Storm Bazarsky and James Olmo for Best Band Performance piece; Ariel Buchko for Best Performing Arts piece; Randi Jerrell for Best Singing Performance piece; and Michael Chung for Best Overall Performance. I practiced hours every day after school, said Chung, who began practicing about a year ago. STEVIE WHITE For the Riverland News Special to the Riverland News

Jody Weber, Softball The junior slugger was 2-for-3 against Hernando with one RBI. In addition to her stellar offensive performance, Weber did a great job blocking pitches as catcher for the Lady Tigers in the loss. Jordon Boley, Baseball The senior standout has gone 2-for-6 at the plate this season with two runs scored, two RBIs, two doubles and on-base percentage of .407 and a slugging percentage of .300 for the Tigers baseball squad.

During the off season, members of the Dunnellon Little League Board of Directors, volunteers and others throughout the community spent countless hours breathing new life into the decades-old facility. The facelift was completed with the assistance of Lowes Home Improvement Stores Community Heroes program, which awarded Dunnellon Little League with a grant to help assist in the renovation of the facility. Lowes donated much-needed fencing, paint and other items the league could not afford. Festivities will kick off at 8 a.m. Saturday with the Little League parade, which will stretch from the Bingo Hall on East Pennsylvania Avenue to the Little League Complex. Its the third straight year in which Little League officials have had the parade after a three-year absence. After the parade, Little League teams will have their team pictures taken, followed by appearances from top sponsors of the League. The first pitch for the 2013 season is slated for between 10:30 and 11 a.m. In addition to the parade and other opening-day festivities, Dunnellon Little League will sell barbecue dinners for $6 each. Dinners can be purchased at the Little League field beginning at 10:30. All proceeds go to Dunnellon Little League. Weve still got a lot of work to do, but as far as this weekend goes, Brian Sweet, Dunnellon Little League president, said, Im ready to get it under way, Im ready to let the hard work pay off. Short-handed Lady Tigers trounched The Dunnellon High School varsity softball team has put in the effort to win through its season so far, according to sophomore Angel Richardson. The Lady Tigers faced Hernando on Feb. 22 at Lady Tigers stadium, leaving the field with an unfortunate 17-3 setback. With one of their pitchers, Bianca Pierro, home with the flu and the Southeastern Youth Fair requiring some of their players for the pig show, Dunnellon found itself at a disadvantage. Scoring one run in the third inning and the last two in the sixth, Dunnellon had a total of five hits and two errors. They made up for the two errors by turning two double plays. Sophomore Dania Clark and junior Jody Weber had one double each, while Weber scored once. Senior Tiara Thomas had an RBI. Richardson scored the Lady Tigers other run after drawing a walk. Clark, who started in the circle for the Lady Tigers, pitched two innings. She was relieved by senior Angie DeGennaro, who finished the game. Dunnellon played Tuesday at Vanguard. Results were not available at press time. The Lady Tigers will play at 6 p.m. today at home against Eustis. Dunnellon will play again at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 5, at home against Nature Coast.

This lesson could not fit any team more accurately than the DHS track team. Its a building year, said Valerie Bazarte, Dunnellon girls track coach. The girls track and field program has always been small, maybe four or five girls. However, this year, Bazarte had 15 girls try out. We have a lot of freshmen out this year, she explained. One of those freshmen is Tyra Thomas, a volleyball and basketball player looking to stay in shape. She placed second in the high jump in her first meet on Feb. 19 against Lake Weir and West Port. I just like to run and jump, said Thomas. Other freshmen were working hard, such as Diamond Torres, who threw very well in the shot put.

dealing in reclaimed, antique and exotic wood. He perfected his woodcraft artistry by making everything from furniture, crown molding and flooring. I am like an artist, Moseley said. I can take any piece of wood and make it into anything you want. He sold the sawmill just before going to the Pennsylvania Gunsmith School in 2007. It took Moseley about 2,500 hours to complete the course at the school and receive his certification and a portfolio showing examples of his work and custom made tooling. He graduated in September, 2009 with a diploma in the Master Gunsmith Program. There are about 40 people at a time in the school and there is a year-long waiting list to get in, Moseley said. I spent eight hours a day, every day, for about two years to finish. After his graduation he started working for Gander Mountain as a gunsmith and they moved him to Florida. It was great until they decided to get rid of the gunsmiths and just have salesmen, he said. With all his accomplishments, Mosely still feels he is an underachiever in his family of overachievers. One of my sisters is a Program Coordinator for World Health at Cornell and the other one is a Ph.D. nurse practioner, Moseley said. I have an MBA in International Business, but Im the only one in the family of overachievers that doesnt have a Ph.D. Moseley was without employment for about a year before he learned of the land for sale in Dunnellon. He decided to purchase the 5-acre property which includes an old doctors office and a separate residence in the back. There was a lot of work to get this shop ready, he said. I had to reinforce the walls so they could withstand a vehicle going through them. I put bars on the windows and doors and have an eight foot tall fence topped with barbed wire around the building. As a master gunsmith, Moseley also has a dealers license, a manufacturing license and he is a Natonal Rifle Association-certified firearms instructor. With the responsibility of buying and selling weapons, he is also responsible to the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) to keep accurate records of all proceedings. The ATF is a regulating factor to check inventory against the bound book, he said. The dealer has a bound book and the gunsmith has a bound book. There is a lot of paperwork involved. He does disassembly and assembly of firearms and general repairs in his shop. He offers gun sales, trades, special gun orders and custom built orders. Moseley has recently partnered with Paulette Stoudt of Wild Heart Stables also in Dunnellon. They are planning to teach mounted gun training together. Im teaching Paulette to shoot so she can train horses for mounted shooting, Moseley said. We are helping each other in our businesses. Moseley can be reached at CDM. Gusmith@gmail.com.

They will be sharing innovating ideas and strategies on how to motivate your child to want to do their homework, rather than forcing them to do it. This event promises to be enlightening to both parents and students. They invite you to enjoy an assortment of light refreshments while attending this event, provided by their Title 1 Resource Parent Center. For information, contact Tonya Hill, Romeos Parent Center Coordinator, at 465-6700.Title 1 annual meetingThere will be a Title 1 informational meeting prior to the start of the Making Homework Fun! parent and student workshop. This meeting will be full of information regarding the Title 1 program and all the wonderful things Title 1 has to offer. Most educators, parents and community members have heard the term Title 1 School thrown loosely around, but what is it? Title 1 is the nations oldest and largest federally funded program, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Annually, it provides more than $14 billion to school systems across the country. In fact, federal funding through this program is used by more than 56,000 public schools nationwide to help students meet state standards in a variety of subject areas. This meeting will answer your questions about Title 1 and provide you with information about the many programs available to your child at Romeo Elementary. We hope to see you there. 14 Riverland News, Thursday, February 28, 2013 Riverland News T O PLACE ACLASSIFIED AD, CALLToll Free 1-877-676-1403MONDAYTHROUGH FRIDAY, 8 A.M.

We are again repeating the shot update request to our parents of sixth-grade students who will enter the seventh-grade in August 2013 to have your childs shot record updated as mandated by the state. The mandated shot is: Tdap shot (tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough). Incoming seventh-grade students in August will not be allowed to attend school until their shot record has been updated. Our DMS nurse has requested parents of DMS sixth-grade students who received a health letter referring your child for a medical followup with your health care provider to please return the bottom portion of the health follow-up letter to the Dunnellon Middle School nurse. These health results and parental follow-up are part of your childs permanent school record. Call the Dunnellon Middle School nurse/clinic at 465-6720 for assistance with this important issue. We would also like to let our parents know that the Marion County Health Department provides free immunizations to all Marion County children up to age 18. For information or questions, call the Marion County Health Department at 352-629-0137. Dont forget to save your Box Tops for Education for Dunnellon Middle School.
