Report: Woman sets kitchen on fire A 42-year-old woman who vowed she was going out in a blaze of glory after setting a fire in the kitchen ended up in the custody of the Marion County Sheriffs Office officials. According to an arrest report, Michelle Diane Fowler Osteen Bedillion of Lake Tropicana was charged Sunday with aggravated domestic battery, arson and violation of probation. The report stated the victim told authorities Bedillion had not taken her medication and had been acting out. The victim added he and Bedillion had been in a verbal argument when she escalated the altercation by throwing objects at him. According to the report, when the victim turned to leave he felt a strike to the back of his head cutting into his scalp. The victim told authorities he believed the object was a heavy picture frame. The report stated when Michelle Bedillion Photos by JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsBandito peers over the shoulder of Cheryl Norman, fascinated and intrigued by the clicking noise from a camera. The 4-week-old is currently being rehabilited for a return to the wild at Back to the Wild, a nonprofit, no-kill animal rehabilitation center in Rainbow Lakes Estates. Hans Norman readjusts a tree branch that had fallen over in one of the raccoons cages. Hans said it was important to provide them with plenty of items to climb up, because thats what they do best. Local animal rehabilitation facility remains busy Bandito peers over the shoulder of Cheryl Norman, fascinated and intrigued by the clicking noise from a camera. Shortly afterward the 4-week-old raccoon begins to strike a pose for the photographer. Bandito is one of seven raccoons currently being rehabilitated at Back to the Wild, a licensed nonprofit no-kill shelter located on the northern edge of Rainbow Lakes Estates. Hans and Cheryl Norman, the founders of Back to the Wild, said the primary mission of their organization is simple: rehabilitating injured wild animals and returning them to where they belong the wild. Back to the Wild got its official start in 2001, but did not become incorporated until 2005 at the behest of friends. Our reward comes from the love we get back from the animals, the couple said as Cheryl Norman allowed Bandito to rest his head upon her shoulder while keeping a watchful eye on the days visitors. Its really important to us that we go about this the right way. Most of the animals the Normans take in include raccoons, foxes and other species in the rabies vector as well as deer. Handling such breeds in the rabies vector is no small task. First, handlers must obtain their pre-rabies vaccinations, which consist of three AUGIE SALZER/For the Riverland NewsLinda, left, and Clayton Bubba Owens recently relocated the Clayton Owens Produce Stand. Their new location is one mile south of their old spot, next to the Tiger Land Carwash. Produce stands blossom The produce business in Dunnellon is growing and giving residents an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetable choices. For about 17 years, the Clayton Owens Produce stand was in front of the Sunoco station and B-Kwik Food Mart on U.S. 41, but has recently moved to a new location one mile south of its old location. We have been looking to go to the south side of Dunnellon for some time now, said owner Linda Owens. Now we have a bigger place to serve our customers. Before starting in the produce business, Clayton Bubba Owens worked in concrete construction. He decided to partner with a friend to open a stand in Gainesville. After a while, I sold my part of the partnership and decided to open my own, Owens said, noting they opened their first stand JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See WILD page 2 See PRODUCE page 3 AUGIE SALZER For the Riverland News Longtime fixture moves; new business opens Woman claims discrimination A former city of Dunnellon employee filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Ocala against the city almost a year ago, citing the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978. According to the suit filed in June 2012, Kelly Owens once worked for Dunnellon Fire Rescue as a firefighter/EMT; however, in July 2010, Owens discovered she was pregnant. In August 2010, Lt. Troy Slattery learned about Owens pregnancy at which time, the suit states, Lt. Slattery started treating Owens differently due to her pregnancy, requesting unneeded medical restrictions and preparing to remove Owens from truck assignment. In September 2010, Owens was only permitted to work four days. Also in September 2010, the city learned Owens became dehydrated and passed out at Golden Flake while performing her duties for another employer. According to the suit, on Sept. 27, 2010, Dunnellon Fire Rescues Matt Pudlo called Owens and inquired about the Golden Flake incident and advised Owens he would inform Fire Chief Joe Campfield and Lt. Slattery. Owens told Pudlo she was well. On Sept. 28, 2010, Lt. Slattery requested medical documentation due to the Golden Flake incident. Lt. Slattery informed Owens he had learned about the incident from a local newspaper article. After Lt. Slatterys Former fireman files suit vs. city See SUIT page 2 Lake Tropicana resident faces charges of arson, aggravated domestic battery JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See FIRE page 3 JEFF BRYAN Riverland News


request, documents state, Owens contacted two city employees to confirm the procedure for pregnant firefighters and medical documentation requests. The suit states the city failed to provide Owens with procedures or protocols for pregnant firefighters or medical documentation request. Several days later, the suit alleges, a city employee called Owens and informed her that the citys legal counsel advised the city there was no need for medical documentation since the Golden Flake incident did not occur while she was performing duties for the city. According to the lawsuit, Lt. Slattery again requested medical documentation on Oct. 17, 2010, and informed Owens he would not schedule her without a doctors note. Based on Lt. Slatterys demand, Owens provided medical documentation on Oct. 28. On Oct. 31, Owens was permitted to cover a shift for Lt. Slattery. Owens was allowed to work half a shift Nov. 3 for a sick coworker. However, on Nov. 3, 2010, Lt. Slattery announced during a meeting that he would no longer allow Owens to be on a truck. On Nov. 4, Lt. Slattery left messages for Owens to contact him as soon as possible. Owens, the suit states, contacted the city regarding the status of the requested medical documentation. On Nov. 4, the city informed Owens the medical documentation was acceptable and approved by the city. Owens requested Lt. Slattery be informed about the current status of the medical documentation. According to documents, the city called Lt. Slattery with the current status of Owens medical documentation. The city then informed Owens she would remain on the schedule. According to the lawsuit, four city employees called Owens to again discuss the Golden Flake incident as reported in the newspaper. Shortly afterward, City Clerk Dawn Bowne told Owens she would not be able to perform her duties for the city based on her medical condition. Owens only known medical condition was her pregnancy. Throughout November, Owens provided multiple documentations regarding her medical condition, the suit states. However, according to the suit, the city refused to provide, on multiple occasions, a status about Owens medical documentation and the status of her work schedule. On Nov. 14, the suit states, Bowne called Owens to inform her no decision had been made since the city was unable to directly speak with Owens medical provider. Owens informed Bowne her medical provider had changed to which the city instructed Owens to sign a release so officials could speak with her new medical provider about her condition. The lawsuit stated Bowne told Owens she would not be permitted to transport any documentation to her new medical provider from the city, because the city wanted to communicate directly with Owens medical providers. The city wanted to make sure, the suit states, that Owens medical providers reviewed the medical reports from the hospital that treated Owens after the Golden Flake incident. According to the lawsuit, on Dec. 2, Bowne told Owens her previous medical documentation was short and stated that Owens was pregnant and was, therefore, unacceptable. Bowne also told Owens she was not cleared to go back to work by her initial physician even though the city was aware he was no longer her primary doctor. On Dec. 8, the city sent a request to Owens current medical provider for medical documentation. Owens claims the city knew its actions were financially harming her due to the delay. Also, on Dec. 8, Owens was told by Chief Campfield she was no longer permitted to speak with anyone else, but him about the situation. He warned, the suit states, Owens that she would be disciplined if she communicated with City Hall or anyone else. On Dec. 18, Owens was approved to return to work and worked a shift that day; however, the suit states, Lt. Slattery told Owens she was not scheduled for any shifts in January 2011. According to the suit, Owens is seeking a trial by jury and seeks compensation for discrimination based on sex and pregnancy as well as intentional infliction of emotional distress. The city intentionally inflicted emotional distress on Owens when it essentially approved her medical documentation only to turn around and refuse to schedule her because of her pregnancy, the lawsuit states. The city knew Owens was pregnant when it expressly told her she could not be scheduled because of her medical condition her pregnancy. Such conduct is outrageous in a modern society. shots according to the World Health Organizations (WHO) website. Going about it the right way means a lot of TLC (tender loving care), time and, of course, money. But donations dont go toward salaries: All money raised goes straight to the costs of feeding the animals and providing water and shelter. The Normans also contribute a large amount of their personal income toward caring for the various animals they take in on a yearly basis. This isnt about money, said Hans Norman, who moved to the United States in 1969 from his native Sweden. We love doing this. Its the reason we dont have a fancy home with fancy cars. We just love the animals, we love seeing them become healthy and surviving where they belong. Thats the best reward we can get. Throughout the years, the Normans have steered clear of federal grants, because of the stipulations the government places upon them. This past year, the Normans received a sizable donation from the Humane Society to upgrade the animals cages. Another donor provided fencing material to enclose their 2-acre property. The upgrade was sorely needed, Hans Norman said, noting officials with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conversation conducted an annual inspection. I couldnt have agreed with them more, Hans Norman explained. The material was old, every time you stepped on (the fencing) you got a dusting of rust. We were very thankful for the funds to be able to complete the project. Volunteers and donors play the most pivotal role at Back to the Wild, the Normans said. Volunteers allow us to do so much more around here, they said, pointing to a pair of sheds one volunteer constructed by himself while pointing to the fencing surrounding the 2-acre property, which has been vital in keeping dogs off the property and keeping the wild animals safe. We got the fencing donated after a dog killed one of the baby raccoons. That was tough and disheartening to watch. But we can always use volunteers. Theres a lot to be done around here, but its not always about playing with the animals and feeding them. A lot goes into this, so youve really got to want to do it. Donations have been mixed in the past years, especially since the economy soured in the past few years. But, as the Normans said, they always find a way to make sure the animals are taken care of. We used to have a steady stream of donors, Hans Norman said, but as the economy worsened, those people had to cut back for a variety of reasons. Yet, there are people who always find out about us and make contributions when they can. The Normans praised the efforts of Rainbow River Animal Hospital and Gordons Animal House, both of which provide free or reduced care for injured animals they are rehabilitating. Weve been partnering with Rainbow River Animal Hospital for a long time, Hans Norman said. When it changed ownership, the folks just continued what we had in place. We cannot thank them enough for what they do. Every little bit helps. The Normans stressed their facility isnt Disney World. We dont do tours, they explained. This is about making sure the animals get healthy again, so we can let them back into the wild. We would encourage anyone who has questions, to view our website. We keep it updated on a consistent basis. For information about Back to the Wild, call 352489-3200, email BackToTheWild@aol.com or visit BackToTheWildInc.com.

the victim exited the house Bedillion locked the door and began pouring cooking oil on the stove and counters. She then lit some paper and her purse on fire with a cigarette lighter in an attempt to light the oil on fire. According to the report, the victim kicked the door open, ran into the kitchen and extinguished the fire. While the victim was preoccupied with the fire, Bedillion fled the scene. The report stated authorities observed a large laceration to the victims scalp, behind his left ear. Law enforcement authorities also observed damage to the purse and stovetop and noticed the house had filled with smoke. Personnel from Marion County Fire Rescue were dispatched to the scene to treat the victims injury as well as to verify the fire was completely out. According to the report, a K-9 unit responded to the scene to assist in locating Bedillion. After a short track, she was found in a wooded area outside the fenced-in yard. Post Miranda, Bedillion told authorities she threw several items at the victim and said, He deserved what he got. Law enforcement officials then asked about the oil and burnt items, to which Bedillion responded, Well, I werent frying chicken. Asked what she was doing, Bedillion said, I was gonna go out in a blaze of glory. Bedillion was transported to the Marion County Jail. According to jail records, Bedillion remained in the Marion County Jail. Her bond was set at $3,000 for the aggravated domestic battery charge; however, no bond was set for the charges of arson and violation of probation. in August 1996 at B-Kwik. The Owens were closed for about a month so they could set up their new and larger tent and comply with all regulations for city building permits. Just some of the requirements included a restroom facility, emergency lighting in the tent, handicapped parking spots and the tables had to be 48 inches apart so they were handicappedaccessible. It was like we were building a new building, Mrs. Owens said. They had an inspection to make sure we did everything we were supposed to do before we could open. Most evenings, Owens drives his truck into Tampa about 7 p.m. to get to the market, gather the fruits and vegetables and returns home by 3 a.m. I go to the Tampa Market because they have better stuff and Im usually the first guy there, Owens said. I go early to get the best choices. The children, Kelsea, Kayla and Clayton, have also contributed throughout the years helping their parents run the business. This is a family business with the kids helping, Owens said. We also have Crystal Kosinko, a good family friend, helping us for the past six years. If everything isnt sold while the produce is still fresh, the Owens have been donating the leftover food to the Families in Need program. They will be open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily, but plan to take a day off occasionally after school lets out. I love this business, I like being my own boss. Its creative and I like making our customers happy, Mrs. Owens said. Our customers are coming back and we are getting new customers. We wish him all the best, Mrs. Owens said about Todd and Cindy Schweers, the new owners of the produce stand at their old location. Schweers opened the T & C & Sons Produce on March 1 after foodmart owner, Zulf Lakhani, asked him if he would. Our kids go to school together and Zulf asked me if I wanted to open a stand, Schweers explained about how he knows the Lakhanis. Schweers originally owned a fruit market on S.R. 200 with his nephew, but sold his share and decided to come here. I was born and raised in Dunnellon, he said Five generations here in Dunnellon. We have a lot of history in this town. Upon erecting the tent, Schweers found they had to position it about 25 feet back from the former site used by the previous tenant. We had to move back behind the Sunoco sign, he said. It was a stipulation, Sunoco said to have someone on the site they had to move behind the sign. Schweers gets his products from Plant City and the Tampa Market brought in fresh by his nephew. The family business will be open from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday. Currently, his bumped and bruised tomatoes are reduced in price so they can be used for canning and he recently donated some boxes of older bananas to the Moose Lodge for their needy families. Im very busy, but a local food pantry can come in and we can work something out, Schweers said about his older fruit and vegetables. Id rather have produce eaten than thrown away. The newest stand will take debit and credit cards and should be set up in about three months to take EBT, according to Schweers. We are getting a lot of locals now and it will increase when the food mart opens, no later than April 15, he said. I feel there is room in Dunnellon for two produce stands.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, April 4, 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 Security has better things to do than issue parking violations As a law-abiding citizen, we were very annoyed to find a parking violation on our Easter Sunday. We had our driveway repaired and painted Friday and Saturday before the holiday. Of course, we were not allowed to use the driveway to park our car into the garage for several days. The driveway was roped off so nobody else would go on there. We asked our neighbors, who own the empty lot between our two homes, for permission to park the car on their lot for several days. They did not see any problem with that. My husband parked the car about 30 feet from the road. So my question is why? It is nice to have security driving around, but dont they have better things to watch out for? Happy Easter. Margaret Koene,Rainbow Springs River Corridor Protection Ordinance not the problemIn the March 28 edition of the Riverland News, Dunnellon Councilman Dennis Evans took issue with the River Corridor Protection Ordinance (Ordinance 2008-01). In his critique, he has taken many paragraphs out of context and his criticism is largely based on distortions of fact. It would be virtually impossible to address all of these unwarranted criticisms in this reply. It appears that Mr. Evans problem evolves from a personal concern pertinent to his own property. He is concerned that, should a catastrophic loss occur to his home, he would have to rebuild to comply with increased river setback requirements to meet Ordinance 2008-01. In October 2008, when this ordinance was passed by the City Council, it was adopted, subject to an amendment that exempted developed lots of record. Unfortunately, city staff failed to incorporate this amendment into the published ordinance. This is an easy fix since the record would show that the amendment was meant to be included. It is easy to see that Mr. Evans is a strong property rights advocate who believes that, if you can afford to own it, you should Hometown icon will be missed I ve spent the past year trying to get over my granddaughter, Dominique. What I mean by getting over is not talking to her every day and not spending every waking moment thinking about her. After all, she is my first grandchild and for all you grandparents out there I need not say more. There is something so special about that first one that changes your whole entire life and creates a love inside of you that you didnt even know existed. Dominique has been such a large part of my life. My daughter was a single mom since Nique was a year old, so my mother and I helped raise her. To say we saw her almost every single day would not be an exaggeration. That girl has melted my heart. I hope everybody gets to feel love like this at least once in their lifetime. Every vacation, Ive taken shes come along. If Russell and I went anywhere on the weekends, she was with us. Not to mention spending almost the whole entire summers with us. Nanaws house was the place to be. She would rather be here than anywhere. Then she became a teenager. Sometimes I miss her, so much I could cry. So thats why girls weekend in Daytona was a slice of heaven this year. We do it every year, but this year it seemed more important somehow. After all shell be in high school next year, which does not seem even remotely possible, and we wont be graced with her presence for too many more years. We started this tradition when Dominique was 6 months old. We packed her diaper bag, playpen, stroller and off we went, not knowing what to expect. We had a big, huge umbrella over her the whole time and she loved it. No crying, no fussing all day. She just played contentedly, oohing and aahing at all the sights and we knew she loved the beach as much as we did. We have gone every summer since. It started being known as girls weekend even though years later my grandson was allowed to tag along, but hes the only boy we make exceptions for. There were a couple of years when we picked up my granddaughter on that very last day of school without saying a word and headed to Daytona as a surprise to her. But, of course, that was back when we could still pack her clothes and stuff and she wouldnt care what we brought. This year, we did Spring Break instead of summer, but it just worked out that way. For years, we stayed at the same place. But lately weve been trying out several others. As long as they have a kitchenette, a balcony and an extra-large pool with plenty of lounge chairs were happy. Things such as scavenger hunts and face painting have been replaced by sun bathing and shopping excursions, but thats OK.

THE OTHER GUY LETTERS JERSEY GIRL TIME TO SMILE D umb. Thats what I have been asking myself lately. How dumb am I? My gray matter must have disappeared, because I can be amazingly stupid for a college educated woman. My dad used to say we all had the book smarts, but not a lick of common sense. Father knows best. Last month, I figured out how to play Solitaire. No, I am not saying I just learned how to play it. In fact, I have been playing it for decades since my Grandmother Mal taught me how to play clock Solitaire. We played a lot of card games as kids. What I am saying is that I just figured out the strategy of Solitaire. I never could figure out which pile I should take from say I needed a red 10 and one came up in the dealer hand and there was one already down on the pile, I would use the one from the dealer rather than move the one on the pile and flip another card over. Explaining this is a little difficult. All you have to know is that I am an idiot when it comes to things that are right in front of my face. Somehow I manage to miss the obvious. This brings me to another dumb thing I did. During a recent windstorm the power went out. Luckily, it was daylight so I was able to complete what I was doing. About 10 minutes later, I gathered my things and headed to the garage. I was going to visit my mom. I remembered the door wouldnt work because the power was off. I sat my things down and tried to lift the garage door. It went about half an inch off the ground. That darn thing was heavy. I heaved and I hod, but it would not move. I made a mental note to start lifting weights. Pushing, pulling and pleading did not work. After 20 minutes of cursing, I started to get claustrophobic. Remember I am good at panicking. Frustrated and close to tears, I sat on the bumper of my car. The answer was right in front of my face literally. The dang door was locked. Man, I gave myself a yelling for being so dumb. People arent the only ones that do dumb things. Corporations do stupid things, too. Although according to the court, corporations are people, too! For instance, some knucklehead at Ford Motors gave the OK to an ad depicting women stuffed in the back of a car trunk tied up in skin tight bondage outfits. Like Jay Leno said to Hugh Grant when he got caught picking up a woman of the evening: What were you thinking? Seriously? Who and how could anyone think Tweedle Dee and ... Girls, girls, girls: Tradition still special treat W hen I first broke into journalism, I did so in the sports world. I was a sports junkie filling what little free time I had by constantly having Sports Center turned on, or the latest sports event coming through on the television. That doesnt even include the countless sports sections I combed through on a daily basis in an attempt to become one of the best, if not the best, sports writer in my hometown. I had plenty of big shoes to fill, but none bigger than those of Mickey Parmen. I was familiar with Parmens name, but not entirely sure of who Parmen was and what impact she had in setting the standard for communityminded sports journalism. I quickly learned when I landed for my first full-time job in July 1998, when my then-editor Chris Wessel hired me as a sports reporter for Atchison Life, a three-time weekly newspaper I had been working at part-time since its inception. Youre no Mickey Parmen, he said. And if you want to be like her, youve got a lot to learn and a lot more to do. Sure, there had been several top-notch journalists who had served as sports editor since Parmen left the position in the late 1970s. There were a few of those folks who came close to filling her shoes, but no one ever set the bar higher than Parmen. Perhaps no one was ever going to, nor will they ever. Parmen was the quintessential community-minded journalist. Parmen was everywhere, from the football fields, gymnasiums, baseball fields and tracks to the little field ball fields and fishing tournaments. Parmen wasnt just loved and respected by coaches, athletes and parents. Parmen was loved and respected by everyone, whether they were involved in sports or not. Parmen had a unique writing style that even the uneducated sports fan loved to read. Simply put, she was a trailblazer. Yes, Parmen was a female. She delved into sports at a time in which few women ventured, and at a time in which fewer succeeded in such a position. Success wasnt her goal, nor was breaking gender barriers. She loved writing and wanted to tackle the role. She did so with a fervor, unmatched by anyone, myself included. Parmen witnessed some of the greatest athletes and teams to come out of Atchison, from state basketball and football champions to state championship golfers and the first, and only, girls sports team to win See LETTERS page 13 See JERSEY page 5 See SMILE page 5 Audrey Beem Jeff Bryan Editor See OTHER page 5 Kathleen Wallace


this was a good idea? It makes for a funny cartoon, but not a good advertisement. Locally, a certain bank did something incredibly dumb. They laid off a devoted longtime employee because she was in need of a transplant. This woman is an outstanding member of this community. She would do anything for anyone. The only people who didnt know her were newcomers to the area. If there is anyone person that represents the spirit of Dunnellon it is her. She got glowing reviews from her bosses, co-workers and bank customers. What kind of knucklehead lets someone like that go? You would think this bank would use this opportunity to help a well-deserving employee and gain some free and much needed good publicity. People are flocking to credit unions. Friendly ads just dont cut it when you lose peoples money. I am not sure who gets more bad jokes told about them, lawyers or bankers. Instead of setting up a fund or sponsoring a fundraiser to help defray the cost of a transplant, they decided to act all corporate and dismiss the problem. Seriously, you have a chance to show you are a legitimate member of this community, but you decide to take the route of the cold corporation that leaves a very sick beloved member of the community without a job or health insurance? Again, what were you thinking? If you want to be a bank in this community drop the corporate attitude. Dunnellon is a community. We may bicker about water rates and river usage, but we have and, always will, help a neighbor in need. Well, the dumb bunny who laid her off will probably lose their job the next time the bank is taken over and in this economy there will be a next time. I should take heart in knowing I may be dumb but someone else is a lot dumber! we get in a few games of putt-putt golf were all good. Likewise, a walk on the beach and a few hours on the Boardwalk are a must. Oh and this year I was told to look for a tiki bar, so she can sample some virgin drinks. I made sure that was on the hotel amenities list. We always bring groceries for the duration, but we pick one night for a fancy dinner out. We get all dressed up and splurge. After dinner, we spring for ice cream if we have any room left. Were creating memories to cherish. Our special time to bond, and theres always tons of laughter. I hope this will be one tradition that will endure for years and years to come. Dominique can grow up and bring her kids along one day and as long as Nanaw can make the trip, Ill be there In the meantime, Ill show up at all her ball games, keep abreast of her activities and admire her from afar. I know to stay in the background and not embarrass her. Yet, I hope she always knows that I am here, full of cheer, support and so much love I could burst. Of course, there are still those days when I get a text message at work saying, Hey Nanaw lets go to Don Pepes tonight for dinner. And I smile, all I can do is smile. a state championship, when the Atchison High girls volleyball team captured the 1974 title. It was the year in which I was born and a key reason I got to know Parmen on a more personal basis. Though it was 25 years after the fact I had the opportunity to sit down, one-on-one with Parmen. During my brief tenure at Atchison Life, I was tasked with writing stories commemorating Atchison Highs 1974 Championship as well as the 1969 boys basketball championship team, the first boys team to capture a title in basketball-crazed Kansas. Parmen knew both teams well. She knew the athletes, too. Most of the boys, now grown men, she had kept in touch with. However, the volleyball team had moved on, gotten married. But she pointed me in the right direction. Kathy Hines, the coach of the team, was still a teacher at the high school. She was also my physical education teacher and had graduated with my uncle in the 1960s. It was a tall task, but Parmen was confident I was up to the challenge. And what a challenge it was, tracking down 14 women 25 years after the fact. Married, names changed, moved to far off locations. But I got the job done. Of course, recognizing the 1969 basketball team was easier and my boss and I at the time coaxed Parmen into writing one more column, for old times sake. She didnt waffle at the notion, she embraced it. So for the 30th anniversary celebration, a two-page spread, Parmen recalled the memories of that team. I think the gentlemen on the team enjoyed her recollection of that year more than sharing the stories themselves. Parmen and I spoke on occasion after that, as she provided advice on not only my career and writing style, but about life. Its those discussions I enjoyed the most. When I announced I was leaving my hometown almost 13 years ago, Parmen was the first call and wish me a heartfelt congratulations and best of luck. She commended me for a job well done, but it was the readers of the paper who paid me the highest compliment. I still have the note one parent sent me. You did a great job and will be missed. Youre still no Mickey Parmen, but if you had stuck around a few more years, you might have been on equal footing. Still, you were darn close. Best wishes in your career. Parmen died March 9. My former junior high school football coach recalled her fondly. She is right up there with famous sportswriters of today, Ross, one of many athletes whose efforts were chronicled by Parmen during her career, told the Atchison Globe. Im sure I can speak for many of those athletes in a bygone era, she was, and still is, the best. She will be missed.

I am not one to boast, at least not about myself unless someone is listening, but I do give some time to exercising the little gray cells in my mind. Many people, no names given, spend most of their time yapping while people like me spend their time napping. While napping, I am also exercising my mind. Some people exercise their mind by doing crossword puzzles. I tried this but every once in a while Ill think of the right word and then that word makes me think of something else and that makes me think of something else altogether and pretty soon Im off on one of my little mind trips. One thing about these little mind trips of mine, they do not cost very much and when I come to, I am quite refreshed. One danger about my little mind trips is that sometimes I am not alone when I am tripping out. This can be quite dangerous to my health. Last week, for example, I was driving across town and happened to engage in one of my little mind trips. It must have been a good one because I was thoroughly enjoying my trip and then I began to hear in the background a variety of words that did not seem connected nor did they make sense. These words did not have anything whatsoever to do with the Raymond Hart, 73Raymond Hart, 73 of Dunnellon, died March 25, 2013. He is survived by his wife, Anne; son, Randy; and daughter, Kim. Pinecrest Funeral Home provided information. Joseph Anthony Gissy, 84Joseph Anthony Gissy, 84, of Starke and Dunnellon, Fla., passed away late in the evening of Monday, March 25, 2013. He died somewhat peacefully from a heart attack while in the care of Seven Rivers Hospital, Crystal River, where he was being treated for pneumonia and an earlier mild heart attack. Joe was born Sept. 28, 1928, in Lewis County, W.Va., (West by God Virginia as he would say). He was the youngest of five children, born from the union of Jacob Lawrence Gissy and Genevieve Droppleman Gissy, both lifelong residents of that part of West Virginia. Joe graduated from St. Patricks High School in Weston, W.Va., in 1946 and entered the U.S. Marine Corps shortly thereafter. After his military service, he received a degree in Forestry from the University of West Virginia in Morgantown in 1954. In 1951 he married Mary Catherine Kreyenbuhl, whom he met at a square dance three years earlier. They had their first daughter, Karen, while still working on his degree. His first job as a forester brought him to White Springs, Fla., where Michael was born. He then transferred to Waycross, Ga., where Jimmy, Cindy and Denise were born. Joe and Mary then moved their family to Starke in 1960 where he worked for Container Corporation of America for the rest of his career. Timmy and Donald were both born in Starke. Joe retired in 1986 and spent his remaining years actively involved in community service. He worked for a time at the Telegraph and was a very active member of St. Edwards Catholic Church, the Knights of Columbus, the American Legion Post 56, the Bradford County Food Pantry and many other civic organizations and causes. Joe and Mary were instrumental in bringing the singer/songwriter/ performer James Rogers to Starke for a benefit concert, which has since become an annual fundraising event for the Food Pantry for the last 25 years. Even though they still have their house and many friends in Starke, in 2008 Joe and Mary moved to Dunnellon, to be closer to their children. They continued to be very active citizens with St. John the Baptist Catholic Church and other organizations in Dunnellon. He is survived by his wife, Mary Catherine (Kreyenbuhl) Gissy; and all of their seven children, daughter, Karen Johnson (Jodie) Gainesville; son, Michael (Sonja Biggs) Orlando; son, Jimmy (Brenda) Orlando; daughter, Cindy Merrilees (Jay) Fleming Island; daughter, Denise Cahoon (Lonnie) Orlando; son, Timmy (Kay) Orlando; and son, Donald (Susan) Crystal River. The seven children are all married and raising his 17 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

little trip I was on at the time. Then the words started to fall into some kind of an order. Are... You... Listening... To... What... Im... Saying? At first, they did not seem connected and to be truthful it rather upset me because these words were interrupting a very nice mind trip I was on at the time. I hate it when I am interrupted by such nonsense. For some reason I happened to glance over to my right and was shocked to discover that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was sitting in the passenger seat. At first, I thought I was hallucinating. However, she was looking back at me! I stared at her for a minute and then demanded, What are you doing in my car? She gave me one of those looks indicating I was in serious trouble. Then it dawned on me. We were going across town to go shopping. For some reason I had tuned everything out and slipped into a wonderful mind trip. Well, for the rest of the trip I was listening to a voice but that voice was not in my head; it was in my ears. Both of them. I had to leave my little mind trip for another occasion when I was by myself. I must confess that when I get on one of those mind trips of mine I lose sense of everything around me. I have a very active mind; of course, my wife says I have a very active imagination. I am not sure the difference, and I am not about to ask her, either. Some mysteries in life should be just that. A mystery. One mind trip that I get on to about this time a year is Easter. Lately I have had Easter on my mind. I know the word Easter, is not a very politically correct word today. But then I am not running for politics, in fact, I am running away from politics as much as possible. I like the word Easter. In some places, they are changing the Easter Bunny to the Spring Bunny and the Easter Egg Hunt to the Spring Egg Hunt. This is supposed to be more PC tolerable. After all, it is important that we should be PC in everything we do. Those people who object to the word Easter, I wonder if they really know where it came from. To some the Easter Bunny has some kind of a religious connotation. Personally, I never discovered what denomination the Easter Bunny is a member of. Where does the Easter Bunny attend church? The First Church of the Easter Egg Hunt? It has become a popular thing not to tolerate religion in our country. Well, let me correct that. We tolerate all religions except Christianity. It is too bad the people who cannot tolerate Christianity are unable to read. I think it is sad this generation is not able to read anymore, because if they were, they might read some of the history of this country and discover it was founded on Christian principles. Imagine that! I can understand why people are confused about Easter with the Easter Bunny and the Easter Egg. Most are confused about how the Easter Bunny can lay Easter Eggs. They are only familiar with Bugs Bunny and everybody knows he cannot lay an egg. So, where do these mysterious Easter Eggs come from? Laying all that nonsense aside, and that is all it is, Easter has some very wonderful memories for me. Say what they will, nothing they say can undermine the wonderful thoughts I have about Easter. I like what the apostle Paul says, For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV). The songwriter was right when he said, Because he lives, I can face tomorrow.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

Mix brown sugar with pepper to create a rub mixture. Using your hands, massage the rub onto both sides of the slices of ham. Ham slices should be completely covered (front and back) with brown sugar mix. Place ham slices on sheet of lightly greased foil, then place onto grill.

Things to Know Before You Shop the Meat Case Theres no need to pay extra for poultry or pork thats labeled hormone-free. USDA prohibits farmers from using hormones to raise chicken and pigs. Nearly all beef cattle, whether raised organically or conventionally, spend the majority of their lives on pastures eating grass. Purchasing organic, grass-fed and freerange meats does not make them safer to consume. These labels refer to how the animals are raised, but all meat and poultry can contain bacteria that could cause illness. Most cases of foodborne illness can be prevented with proper processing, hand ling and cooking of food to destroy bacteria.FAMILY FEATURES F iring up the grill is an American tradition. The farm families who produce the food so many people enjoy at backyard cookouts want to share some of their favorite grilling recipes, as well as an appre ciation for how food gets from the farm to the table. Farmers like Amanda Folkens, from Iowa, Danell Kalcevic, from Colorado, and Nicole Small, from Kansas, have joined with more than 70 other farmer volunteers across the country in the CommonGround pro gram as a way to talk with home cooks about how food is grown and raised. On our farm, animal care is top priority, as it is for thousands of other family farms in the U.S. said Amanda. By keeping our animals indoors, we make sure they are protected from predators, disease and bad weather. To learn more about family farms and facts about your food, visit www.FindOurCommonGround.com. Here are some of Amanda, Danell and Nicoles favorite grilling recipes.Safe Minimum Internal Temperatures145F Beef, pork, veal and lamb (roasts, steaks and chops) 160F Ground meat 165F Poultry (whole, parts or ground) County to host weekly farmers market Marion County is bringing back its weekly Friday farmers market and is looking for additional vendors.

County to offer summer camps DHS FFA welcomes lambs Photos by STEVIE WHITE/For the Riverland NewsThis was one of six ewes to give birth to a baby at Dunnellon High School. Here, she feeds one of her offspring. Since the arrival of the lambs, the students of Ms. Trammells agriculture classes have been taking daily trips to the barn to observe and learn about the normal interactions between a mother lamb and her young. Four ewes give birth before break As we welcome spring, the students of the Dunnellon High School FFA chapter welcomed new members to their program. These new members have four little legs, a soft layer of wool and an awkward wobble to their walk. On March 15, the first of six ewes at the high school had her baby. Three days following this freshfaced lamb, twins were born. Since the arrival of the lambs, the students of Ms. Trammells agriculture classes have been taking daily trips down to the barn to observe and learn about the normal interactions between a mother lamb and her young. Its so exciting, Trammell said. It is always fun to deal with baby animals. These lambs will be used to benefit the program in the years to come. Plans are already being made to prepare these lambs for show and to be sold to market at the Southeastern Youth Fair. FFA members and ag students signed up to feed and look after the animals during the recently completed spring break. Since lambs usually have a long gestational period, babies are usually born this time of year. The new lambs are really exciting, said student Dane Hobbs. I feel like they will make class a lot more fun and hands on. Special to the Riverland News EDUCATION NEWS This baby lamb rests in a pile of hay at the FFA barn at Dunnellon High.

He does not believe that restrictions should be placed on his property that would protect the river such as limitations on fertilizers, storm water runoff, vegetated pollution buffers, etc. He states that such water bodies are protected and regulated by the FDEP and SWFWMD. Unfortunately, these agencies do not regulate the uplands of rivers and wetlands. Land use regulation is left to the local jurisdictions. With increased understanding of the water pollutant effects of upland runoff most jurisdictions have enacted restrictions on land use to alleviate the seriousness of such water pollution. Marion County, for instance, has established an Environmentally Sensitive Overlay Zone (ESOZ) surrounding the Rainbow River and its affiliated wetlands. This ESOZ has a width of 500 feet or more wherein there are restrictions to protect surface and ground water, wildlife habitat, and to mitigate development impacts with vegetated buffers and building setbacks. Unfortunately, this ESOZ abruptly ends at the northern border of Dunnellon. Apparently, Mr. Evans does not understand that the Rainbow River is already impaired by excessive nitrates from fertilizers and waste water and is rapidly losing its native aquatic vegetation, which supports life in and adjacent to the river. In its place is the rapidly growing toxic algae named lyngbya, which blankets the river bottom, including adjacent to Mr. Evans home. Mr. Evans questions the cost of enforcing the River Corridor Protection Ordinance. When the water bodies are left unprotected and abused who is going to come here to enjoy them? What then will you have to offer for ecotourism? The adverse effect on the economy will be far worse than the amount of money it takes to provide a relatively small amount of regulation. How does this compare to the multimillion dollar boondoggles the city has engaged in the past few years? I could spend a week picking apart Mr. Evans critique of Ordinance 2008-01. Suffice it to say, this is a good ordinance derived by expert planner Gail Easley and her staff in 2008. Many people provided input and thoughtful review to this ordinance through workshops and hearings at that time. It may not be a perfect ordinance, but it is far better than none. Tweak it, but please do not throw it out. Burt Eno, Ph.D., president Rainbow River Conservation Inc.
