County to phase out gas tax deal Pleas to take a do no harm approach to distribute shared gas tax revenues did not fall on deaf ears, but that doesnt mean the five municipalities wont eventually feel the sting of revenue losses. The Marion County Commission on Tuesday unanimously approved the first reading of a new agreement to distribute gas tax revenues with the five incorporated cities in Marion County. Per the new plan, cities wont lose all of the revenue they receive immediately, but the plan does call for lower distribution percentages during the next four years. The new proposal calls for each municipality to receive the percentages set by state statutes. However, in addition to the fixed rate, the county will provide the difference from what each city receives Nathan Whitt Kathy Bryant Officials making budget cuts City lays off 1 employeeWith a citywide budget crisis and the future of Greenlight Dunnellon Communications in limbo, city officials are already making cutbacks where they can, Eddie Esch, interim city manager, told the Riverland News. The first cut was a layoff of one employee, Harriet Daniels, hired more than a year ago as the initial communications coordinator for Greenlight Communications. However, since her hiring, Daniels was brought into the fold as a city employee, not just a Greenlight Communications employee. The former Ocala Star-Banner reporters annual salary was $43,255. Esch said telling Daniels she was being laid off was a tough decision; but a necessary move. We cannot justify the position, Esch said. Harriet is a great person, and I love her, shes wonderful. But it was a move we had to make. Hopefully, we can bring her back. Esch said officials do not expect further layoffs, but each department has asked to watch every penny. Esch said a hiring freeze is in place, with the exception of essential personnel. In meetings with the Photo courtesy of the Dunnellon Garden ClubThe April 1993 luncheon featured many delicious homemade dishes to choose from. Photo courtesy of Bellon familyEvan Bellon, second from right, poses with her family, from left, her mother, Jeanie; father, Tom; and her brother, Riley, after she graduated May 18 from the Florida State University College of Medicine. She began her three-year residency at Daytonas Halifax Medical Center shortly after graduation. Her specialty is family medicine. DHS grad completes medical schooling at FSU Think back to when you were 7 years old. What did you want to be when you grew up? A firefighter? A superhero? An astronaut? For 7-year-old Eva Bellon, her wish was always to grow up to be a doctor. And now, after nearly a decade of post high school studies, Bellons wish has come true. Bellon is a 2004 graduate of Dunnellon High School. While many of her classmates finished college long ago, Bellon earned her degree from the Florida State University College of Medicine on May 18 and will begin her three-year residency at Daytonas Halifax Medical Center shortly. Her specialty will be family medicine. Bellons family threw her a graduation party June 8 where both her mother, Jeanie Bellon, and grandmother, Lela Mae Evers, spoke about Eva as a child and how she was always motivated to help others. Jeanie Bellon related a story of a Fourth of July visit to Daytona years ago when there was some kind of fireworks accident and Eva offered her flashlight to assist and vowed she would be more of a help someday. The amount of work required to earn a degree in medicine is enormous, and Bellon seemed keenly aware of that all through her years in public school. While most of the motivation came from within, there are several teachers she credits with inspiring her as a student. I took all of the AP classes that I could, said Bellon, who noted if DHS had offered AP Physics and Chemistry at the time she would have enrolled in them. As Bellon was earning high marks in her high school classes, she also involved herself in as many clubs If officials approve plan, agreement will be implemented by 2017 Dunnellon Garden Club: Bloom is off the rose The Dunnellon Garden Club (DGC) hosted its first organizational meeting Jan. 3, 1952, with Edna Wolf, Mildred Davis, Suzie Hess and Amy Rush in attendance. The Florida Federation of Garden Clubs Inc. (FFGC) issued its membership certificate April 13, 1952, and the group never looked back. Within one year of the clubs existence, the membership grew to 36 members and at one point the roster listed about 70 members, according to Shirley Shupe, past president who served from 2003 to 2005. The DGC celebrated its 60th anniversary last year and hosted a Fashion Show fundraiser, which broke all records, according to member Pam Ricker. Unfortunately, it was not enough to extend the life of this venerable organization, which considered itself a philanthropic club as well as a garden club. The garden club members hosted monthly luncheon meetings from September through May, during JULIE MANCINI For the Riverland News JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsBellon was active in many groups during her tenure at FSU, including the College of Medicines literary magazine, HEAL, Humanism Evolving through Arts and Literature.

The agreement now allows only Black and Campfield to drive their vehicles home. All uniform officers will have to leave their patrol vehicles parked at the police station. They are willing to do what needs to be done, Esch said. Every penny counts right now, and were trying to save everything we can so were not forced to lay off other people. However, the change in vehicle take-home policy has not gone over well with law enforcement officers. Representatives from the police department were slated to present a report Wednesday about the proposed cost-savings the city would benefit from if it discontinued the use of take-home vehicles. Per the report: Nine officers drive 79 miles one way to their residence, which totals 158 miles roundtrip. This is an average of 8.7 miles per officer, one way. This totals 2,370 miles a month for the department for 28,440 miles a year for the department. Crown Victorians get approximately 23 miles per gallon and have a 19-gallon tank, average of 437 miles per tank, the report stated. For one month, divide 2,370 miles by the miles per tank (437) and one would need 5.6 tanks of fuel for the department employees to drive their vehicles home. At a cost of $40 a tank (Circle K prices), this would cost the city $224 a month. For one year, divide 28,440 miles by the miles per week (437) and you need 65 tanks of fuel for the department employees to drive their vehicles home for a year. At a cost of $40 per tank, this would cost the city $2,600. The report also detailed the cost of fuel versus extra overtime for the lowest paid officer. The report stated the least senior officer makes $15.14 an hour, and they get paid $23.12 per hour when on overtime. Without a take-home vehicle, an officer will accumulate more overtime than normal protocol would dictate, due to traveling to the police department to retrieve a patrol vehicle for court, details and other duties. Also, if an officer is called back in, instead of immediately going to the scene of a call, they would have to respond to the police department first, get all equipment, get dressed and then respond to the location. Issues such as this, the report stated, would warrant an officer accumulating at least 10 hours of overtime a pay period. Twenty of hours of overtime a month would total $462.40. During a year, the additional overtime would be $6,011.20. With nine officers on staff, based on the least senior officers pay, that would cost the city an equivalent of $54,100.80, the report stated, compared to $2,600 per year in fuel costs for use of a take-home vehicle. All of these estimates and numbers are approximate, the report stated. But you can clearly see the overtime, which will be accumulated by not having takehome patrol vehicles will cost extremely more than the extra fuel used to take the patrol vehicles home. The fuel cost and overtime cost are a big deal; however, it is not the big picture. The main concern is the city and its citizens. The citizens will deeply suffer due to the fact officers will take longer responding to emergency situtations from their residences in civilian vehicles and then waste more time loading their vehicles and changing over. So why waste more of the citys money in overtime and put the citizens safety at risk even further? Mayor Nathan Whitt said while he understands its a drastic change in routine for the officers, it was a necessary move to make. Its a fairly large expense, he said of the take-home vehicle policy. It was an easy decision on (Eddies) part. I know its unfortunate and inconvenient to the officers. Every penny counts right now and Id appreciate them being able to do so.

COMPLETE DETAILS ARE IMPORTANT APPOINTMENTS RECOMMENDED 000F8HE A Fathers Day misunderstanding landed a 50year-old Ocala man in the Marion County Jail after he was charged with retail theft, a Dunnellon Police Department arrest report stated. According to the report, Giraldo Reyes was charged with retail theft Sunday afternoon after walking out of Walmart with more than $80 of groceries, including steaks, frozen seafood, babyback ribs and hamburger patties. The report stated at approximately 2:45 p.m. Sunday, law enforcement authorities were dispatched to Walmart in reference to a retail theft. Upon arriving at the store, Officer Mike Miley made contact with a loss prevention officer told him a Hispanic male, 40 to 50 years old, wearing a light blue color polo shirt and dark jeans, selected various items from the grocery area of the store and pushed his cart out of the exit without paying for the items. According to the report, the loss prevention associate followed Reyes out of the store at which time the store employee ascertained the plate number of the vehicle Reyes climbed into and left the property. The report stated after further investigation, Miley made contact with the owner of the vehicle who stated he drove Reyes to Walmart, but was unaware he had stolen anything. The owner of the vehicle, the report stated, agreed to bring Reyes to the police department for questioning. According to the report, the owner of the vehicle and Reyes arrived at the police department in the same vehicle they left Walmart in, and Reyes was observed wearing the same clothes shown in the stores surveillance video. The report stated Reyes spontaneously stated, this was a huge misunderstanding, and explained that he forgot to pay but said he had enough money to pay for the items. The owner of the vehicle said he had no knowledge of what occurred and did not want to be in any trouble because of Reyes actions, the report stated. Reyes was charged with retail theft and transported to the Marion County Jail. According to jail record, Reyes was released Monday.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, June 20, 2013 RIVER 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 Woman concerned about house next to her familys My son and his family live in Rainbow Park Estates on Raintree Street. They are moving to a house down the street. The problem is the house next door is full of black mold, covering walls, floors and ceilings everywhere. It is so much that you can smell it outside. My husband and son walked around it looking in, and what they saw was like a horror movie. To my understanding, the neighbors contacted the county and signed a petition and were told they would take care of it as soon as possible. That was months ago, and nothing has been done its getting worse every day. I am worried sick about my family. My 13-year-old granddaughter plays on this street and now will be living next to a health hazard. Who do I contact to get this taken care of not as soon as possible, but now? Di Anna Bennis,DunnellonWater, sewer a cash cow for city coffersYou printed my last letter in the June 6 edition of the Riverland News. In that letter, I had asserted that the $1.5 million loan to the Greenlight project could only have been funded by profits from water and sewer fees paid by Rainbow Springs and the other communities covered by the Dunnellon utilities buyout of December 2011. Your editors note following the letter stated the mayors position, which is that the $1.5 million was sourced by reserves generated by past water and sewer operations within Dunnellon. There are several problems with that answer. One is the question of how such reserves could be generated in an operation that is deeply in debt. If the answer to that question is that building a contingency fund is more important than retiring debt and profits were, therefore, put into reserves, then the next question is why would the contingency funds subsequently be disposed of by lending them away? Why wouldnt these profits, if not held in reserve, be used to retire the sewer system debt? The debt carries an interest rate greater than 2 percent. Yearbooks are always forever Memories, legacy will continueIt is with great sorrow and regret that the Dunnellon Garden Club has come to a close after serving our community for more than 61 years. The Dunnellon Garden Club was formed in May 1952. The first president was R.E. Hess. We began the club with a few members meeting in their homes. Throughout these 61 years, we have had a total of 34 different presidents, each of whom brought much to the table and was greatly appreciated. The club has enjoyed years of good education with knowledgeable speakers at each of our meetings; the floral arranging competition; participation as a member in FFGC (Florida Federated Garden Club) Conventions; and educational classes for many years. We have had a lot of fun on our many field trips. We had hat contests as well as other contests; the Chinese Auction every year was a hit; and, of course, our lunches. We enjoyed the Christmas exchange, but a few years ago decided to give to the Dunnellon Fire Department instead of having a gift exchange. The annual picnic at the Rainbow Springs River was always a delight. The Dunnellon Garden Club has done much for the community. We maintained the grounds at the old Dunnellon Public Library. Benches were painted in patriotic colors and placed in front of the library and the First Beulah Baptist Church. In November 1976, a Magnolia Liberty Tree was planted at the Post Office as a bicentennial gift to the city and a Weaver Dog Tree to the First Methodist Church. We sold bicentennial compotes and co-operated with the committee to beautify the triangle on U.S. 41 and County Road 484. We were participants in the Bicentennial Parade in Dunnellon. In 1979, we had a Junior Garden Club at Dunnellon Elementary School teaching the students How to Grow a Garden and have beautiful flowers. The first annual tea for new members was in September 1986 and continued throughout the years. We participated several times in the Neighborhood Cleanup Week and received a Proclamation from the city in 1988. In 1989, Walt Driggins was the first man to join the garden club. Trees were always donated for Arbor Day. Our first home tour was in 1992, the Christmas Tree Fantasy Tour.

LIFE THROUGH THE LENS LETTERS GUEST COLUMN THE JERSEY GIRL Time flies and I cannot believe another school year is over. Where has the time gone? My grandson, James, turned 8 last week and we had a pool party with all his friends. Nanaw and Bimpy bought him a new bicycle, a 20-inch. He outgrew his old one. It seems he is finally growing, taller not wider, but he finally exceeded the 50-pound mark. Have I ever told you why the kids call my husband Bimpy? When our first grandchild, Dominique, was born we decided on the names Grammy and Grampy. Well, Dominique had other ideas. She named me Nanaw and she tried to say Grampy, but it always came out Bimpy. Anyway, 14 years later and the names have stuck. Back to James: I cannot believe how smart that kid is. Im pretty sure theyll be putting him into the gifted program next year. Hell check out a fifth-grade book from the library and have it finished by the next day. He was the only child in his class to make all Es the whole year and he also received a citizenship award for his attitude, leadership and honesty. Hes still as sweet as ever too. My daughter was with him at the grocery store one day and she looked over to see tears in his eyes. When she asked him what was wrong, he pointed to a man with no legs. My daughter explained that that man was leading a productive life and, although handicapped, the man was happy, which made my grandson feel better. Another day he came home upset, because the bully in the class was being mean to all of James friends. It makes no sense to him that somebody could be that way. I tell my daughter all the time that boy is an angel from heaven. I hope he never changes. His dog died about a month ago and, of course, he was very sad for a few days. Finally, he told us he knew Rico was OK, because he was with God and he had beef gravy for a pool. Where do kids get this stuff from? It reminds me of those kids in the 4G commercial; they crack me up every time. Dominique is going to be 15 at the end of this year and if I could stop time I would. She received several awards her final year in middle school, not only the highest presidential award you can earn, but also an academic letter and high mathematic honors. Her math teacher called my daughter numerous times raving about Dominiques abilities. The thought of her being in high school next year terrifies me, not because of the temptations; that girl has a good head on her shoulder and I know shell be fine. Shes not the kind to cave in to peer pressure. Growing up, soaring Clubs roots developed long ago As most of you know, Im a yearbook adviser. Its definitely not the easiest job in the world. There are always going to be two main worries: First, that youll never be able to pay the bill; and Second, that nobody will like the yearbook and nobody will buy it, and you wont be able to pay the bill. Certainly, the yearbook has become less of a priority for many students, even as my journalism students strive to make a product that everyone should cherish. A couple of months ago, Herff Jones sent out information about a contest called Power of a Yearbook. They were seeking schools that had done a community service page and were willing to share the page. A panel of judges would evaluate the entries and the winning school would be announced in May. I never did hear anything about who won the contest apparently not us but I saw some really great entries. The one I was most drawn to, because of the emotion that it evoked, was one about the movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colo. The school that submitted it was an Aurora-based school, so the story was written on a very personal level. It had been a long time since a yearbook had given me a lump in my throat. Prior to seeing that Aurora page, it had been years. I had attended a workshop where a young man was talking about how the yearbook was a history book. As he held the yearbook from the Manzanar Japanese internment camp, he went on to explain how important it had been that those young people had been permitted to document their world. His voice cracked as he showed us his aunts photo in those pages. Recently, I had the opportunity to see how a yearbook that my students and I produced had made a difference in someones life. In my 18 years of teaching, I would estimate, by now, I have taught at least 2,000 students. Some I will never forget because they were just that good. Others I cant block out because they were just that bad, but its true that time heals all wounds, so I rarely dwell on these. In all seriousness, a student does not have to be super special to be memorable, and some relatively average students tend to be the ones who make a lasting impression.

If anything shes the opposite, making statements to prove how cool being un-cool really is. Good for her. It scares me, because the years are rushing by and soon shell be grown. I cannot even bear to think about that. If that girl goes to an out-of-state college, I swear the whole family will pack up and go with her. It made me so happy to be a part of her preparations for the eighth-grade dance. I took her to get her hair, nails and makeup done. See, Nanaw is still very much needed. When I saw her in her dress and heels it took my breath away. She was the most beautiful thing Id ever seen. She was so poised and confident. I think it was in that moment I realized shes growing up. The best thing about Dominique though is she acts her age. She still enjoys being a kid. Shes into her friends, sports and having a good time. I dont want to see her going to high school, but I know she will only continue to get better and make us proud. I cant wait to see what she will accomplish in life with her math skills she can be anything. I hope I get to spend some time with them this summer in between working. I heard a man say the other day that climbing Mount Everest was the thrill of a lifetime. Well, I dont know if I ever had those kinds of aspirations, or if I even thought about doing anything like that. But I do know since my grandkids have been born, the only thrill I need is them and I have not wanted for anything else. They are my Mount Everest and my Mount Kilimanjaro. Center reaches fundraising goalThe Family Hope Pregnancy Center in Dunnellon has accomplished its goal of buying an ultrasound machine. The goal was to purchase the machine, which cost $15,800, and we finally were able to accomplish our goal. We have been working on this goal since Christmas. We have written, called and visited all the churches. We also included doctors, attorneys and any individual who would like to contribute to the cause, plus a big hand from the Lord finally got the job done. This was such a big community effort. We are thankful for all of the wonderful people who helped us finish our goal. There are so many people who gave from their hearts and that is what made this fundraiser such a great success. We know our efforts of buying the ultrasound will eventually save the life of babies who would have been aborted. That is what made the challenge worth fighting for. Capital City Bank in Citrus Springs deserves hearty thanks too, for establishing an account for donations to put into. I could not be there in person to thank each donor, so this is my opportunity to say we really do appreciate all the donations you made. We really needed you and you all came through with flying colors.

Instead, the funds were loaned away at a rate of essentially zero. So either the city should have kept the reserves for emergencies or retired debt on the water and sewer operations. Not to mention, it is highly likely that the $1.5 million was mostly generated from Rainbow Springs profits. Lastly, if the previous rates on city water and sewer customers were generating enough profits to create a $1.5 million contingency fund, then why were rates increased for the year 2013? It was noted in December/January that, after considering the city consultants shell game flipflop of fixed and variable rates in the utilities, the average Dunnellon customer would see a 13 percent increase in their bills for 2013. Before a customer turns the faucet handle, the first time for the month, there is already a substantial bill. A customer satisfaction survey of water and sewer customers in and outside of Dunnellon would probably yield some very telling data. Ted Apple,Rainbow Springs Resident should speak softly, observe mannersPerhaps, I should have labeled this loud mouth and no intelligence, but either way my husband hubby and I decided to go into McDonalds before shopping at Sweetbay recently. We got our breakfast and drinks and sat down at a table on the drive-thru side, thinking we found a nice quiet seating area. Once seated, a mature older male sitting with five others decides to open his mouth and he was loud and, intentionally, I do believe for our benefit. I looked at my husband and stated, oh just great loud and obnoxious to boot. My husband told me to stay calm, do not say anything, but what he had to say down the road while making sure he could be heard by all in that section made my husband look at him and say to me, I heard that Mary, please do not go after him. But he really was out of place, and the way he bashed Dunnellon big time. Everything is wrong per him: Greenlight; the new Subway in Walmart; and the red-light cameras that are abusive to speeders. He just went on and on. But, of course, he is a Rainbow Springs resident and one of his associates complains how he does not get Internet service in his home in, again, a Rainbow Springs subdivision. Hello? You could get high-speed Internet from Greenlight and at a very reasonable price. You cannot be financially hurting with your big mobile home you are leaving for a trip in for a month. But back to loud mouth, you showed your stupidity and I so wanted to get up and tell you to get your facts right, and until that time, shut your vicious mouth and take your bad attitude back into your Rainbow Springs subdivision and stay there. Many businesses are in Ocala and Williston and Gainesville. Now what angered us, as to where my husband told me go and let you have it, he would support me and watch my back. That know-it-all had the audacity to loudly state he knows for sure, that in Dunnellon, our veterans, from the American Legion, who stand in front of stores on Poppy Day are not actual veterans, but imposters being paid to collect money for a scammer and not for veterans. Now, he was told this personally by the crooked scammer. Well, mouth you are uninformed and an obnoxious loud mouth, looking for attention by running your mouth mindlessly. My husband is a veteran and an American Legion member. He took great offense at what you said. These men and women from the veterans administration give hundreds of hours to the disabled veterans, in and out of the VA hospitals, they donate their time at flea markets setting up and breaking down the tables needed. They work with the Junior ROTC in hopes of building a better character in our community, and faithfully support and run a weekly bingo, compared to those that run their mouth just for attention. In your opinion, Dunnellon needs a gambling casino, an amusement park, bigger more well-known stores and, oh yes, the Food Lion needs to be torn down for a theater, and more choices of restaurants other than our current choices that are overpriced and inferior. Things sometimes go, not as planned intentionally, but off beat from the well meant plan, but those who fear the red-light cameras should maybe practice safer driving habits or stay in their subdivisions or other townships. Baffling is one question I have for you: Why are you, sir, eating in our little McDonalds? From your outlook, we are an inferior backward town. Mary Hacker,Dunnellon home in Blue Cove; it was a great success, and we ended the day with Santa arriving in a pontoon boat at Rainbow Springs State Park. In 1993, we had a Dedication to the Founders of the Dunnellon Garden Club by planting a tree with Edna Wolf. The other founding associates were gone. Several times we sent a local student to Wekiva Youth camp. Petunias, Roses, lilies and begonias were planted at the Chamber of Commerce. Two oak trees and a peach tree were donated to Dunnellon Elementary School in January 1995. To continue a campus beautification project, $500 was donated to Dunnellon Middle School. We helped landscape Dunnellon High School and one year we helped the Horticultural Department in getting their garden started. In 1996, we sponsored FORS third annual golf tournament. We put together baskets and took them to the Hampton Nursing Home and we have also had teas for the residents of the nursing home. We participated in the annual blood drive and beat our competition in 2003. We also cleaned up 99th Place Road with Adopt a Road for Litter Control. We held a Strawberry Whoop-ti-do in March at the Womens Club, serving homemade goodies, chicken casserole, green peas, biscuits with coffee or tea and strawberry dessert. We made and sold Dunnellon Garden Club aprons. We donated several books pertaining to gardening to the Dunnellon Library and were thrilled with the printing of our own Dunnellon Cookbook and an herb book in 2007. The club worked at keeping Dunnellon green and beautiful and has been faithful in helping to support several organizations in our community, including: Annie Johnsons; Food 4 Kids; Dunnellon Fire Rescues Needy Childrens Christmas Party; and, this year, we helped support the Boys & Girls Club, and will again support our scholarship fund. In the earlier years, we supported Habitat for Humanity when they were building in Dunnellon; we planted plants and trees and with our donation put in a bedroom for one of the homes. These are just some of our accomplishments in the past 61 years. The Dunnellon Garden Club has left its mark on our community and will surely be missed. For the past 17 years, we have had The Dunnellon Garden Club Fashion Shows, which are known for our marvelous and delicious lunches and fashions. The fashion shows were used to raise the money to fund our scholarships and help others in our community. In earlier years, the scholarship was initially organized and set up by Jane Henze. The students would write a 500-word essay; it would be presented to the club and we would vote for the scholarship winner. In 2007, we set up The Dunnellon Garden Club Forever Lifetime Scholarship Fund with thennamed Central Florida Community College. Our scholarship will continue to carry on the name of The Dunnellon Garden Club. We were told at the time we set up the scholarship, if we raised $6,000, the state would match the funds giving us the $12,000 to fund a scholarship. Our goal was to encourage students to attend college, but that year the state stopped matching funds. We were not able to come up with the initial $6,000 prior to 2007, so then we had to come up with the full $12,000 before the scholarship could start funding a student. We were able to do this in 2011 by adding funds each year from some of our fashion show profits. For the past two years, we helped fund a students tuition. Anyone still wanting to help fund this scholarship may do so by submitting a check in any amount to C.F. College, placing the name Dunnellon Garden Club (DGC) Forever Lifetime Scholarship on the bottom left of your check and mail to C. F. Foundation, 3001 SW College Road, Ocala, FL 39474. The scholarship is paid based on the interest earned on the monies in the fund the more monies, the higher the scholarship amount. We would like to see the funds growth able to pay out a $1,000 scholarship each year. Because of todays low interest, the rise in cost of education and the economy, it is difficult to meet these demands. Former club members and a student would appreciate you supporting this scholarship. Even though the Dunnellon Garden Club will no longer be around, we will continue to be remembered by our aprons; our cookbooks; and, of course, our Dunnellon Forever Lifetime Scholarship. We want to thank the many past and present members who have been so dedicated to the club. The club will be missed by all. Erline Likens is a past president of the Dunnellon Garden Club. 6 Riverland News, Thursday, June 20, 2013 ROOTS continued from page 4 LETTERS continued from page 4 000F1Z2 11371 N.

Throughout the year, many days of celebration are tucked capriciously into the calendar. So much so, it is hard to find any day of the year where something or someone is not being observed, which has benefited the greeting card company, you can be sure. I am not positive, but I think they have had a great deal to do with designating these days. Some days are celebrated a little more enthusiastically than others. The Fourth of July has firecrackers; Halloween has funny and scary costumes, not to mention bags of candy; and Christmas boasts the Christmas tree and jolly old St. Nick with all his presents, and it is hard to compete with Christmas parties when it comes to celebrations. And we come to Mothers Day. According to experts, more telephone calls are placed on Mothers Day than any other day of the year. Also, try to walk into a restaurant and get a seat on that certain Sunday. There is a theory, which I subscribe to personally, stating the reason Fathers Day is so lame is because so much has been spent on Mothers Day, there is nothing left. I think there should be a rule that says, whatever Mothers Day costs fathers, mothers should spend on Fathers Day. This would do one of two things; decrease Mothers Day or puff Fathers Day spending. Personally, I am in favor of puffing. Perhaps with some effort, Fathers Day could be a little more exciting. I am not saying this just because I am a father. Well, maybe I am, but if I dont who will? Fathers in general are rather humble and hesitant to speak about themselves. Contrary to popular opinion, every father knows talk is not cheap, and because he has spent so much on Mothers Day, he simply is practicing good manners and shuts up. However, every father needs to know he is truly appreciated by his family. Although you cannot buy a father, it is possible to rent him on occasion. I am in favor of celebrating Fathers Day any which way you can. It really does not matter to the father involved. Any father would consider his child a million dollar baby if he or she would just give a Fathers Day card to him, along with a nice hot cup of coffee while sitting in his favorite chair reading the newspaper. Nothing the children did throughout the year would remain unforgiven if something this simple were done on Fathers Day. As it stands, Fathers Day is celebrated every which way but loose, and I believe it is time this has stopped. Too many loose ends concerning Fathers Day. It is a true crime the way certain things are left hanging concerning fathers. Some fathers have felt like the dead pool around Fathers Day, not knowing exactly what to expect. Mothers Day is rather simple. Every mother knows that she will get certain things; flowers, a Mothers Day card and dinner at her favorite restaurant. By the time Fathers Day comes around everybody is so exhausted from Mothers Day, not to mention most fathers are broke, nobody knows exactly how to make dads day special or, more importantly, who will finance it. Too many people are uptight about Fathers Day and feel like they are running the gauntlet. When I say people, I am referring primarily to Yours Truly. Nobody seems to know what to do about good ole dad on his special day. Fortunately, I have some ideas along this line. With some of the presents I have received over the years, I am beginning to think my children imagine me as a space cowboy, or maybe a high plains drifter driving around in a pink Cadillac heading for the bridges of Madison County. When it comes to being a father, I assure you I am not the rookie walking on a tightrope, directly in the line of fire running toward heartbreak ridge. I have quite a bit of experience being a father, going back more than 40 years. As a father, I have three children notched on my belt. At times, I have felt like the enforcer and the only way to deal with those children was to use magnum force and hang em high. I must confess at times I felt like a pale rider sweating it out in the city heat, realizing no matter how8 Riverland News, Thursday, June 20, 2013 SAR002554 000F2AP 489-2685 Holy Faith Episcopal Church 19924 W.

as she possibly could, including National Honor Society, the Academic Team, Key Club, drama and the yearbook staff. You have to remember it only happens once, so you have to make the best of it, Bellon said of high school. Doing stuff like yearbook, drama, A-Team and Key Club just made high school worth it; its why I loved high school. But I was ready to leave it behind and accomplish my goals. High school was a steppingstone to bigger things. Bellon earned acceptance to FSUs honors program after high school, and with some scholarships, along with money she earned working during summers and occasionally during the school terms, she was able to pay for her entire undergraduate degree herself. In 2008, she graduated cum laude with a degree in biological science. At FSU, Bellon remained active in campus life, taking advantage of the free concerts on campus and as part of a co-ed professional fraternity, Alpha Chi Sigma. She also continued her involvement in community-service projects such as Relay for Life, working with Boy Scouts to help them earn their science badges and as a camp counselor at Camp Boggy Creek for ill children. After earning her bachelors degree, Bellon took 10 months off to care for a family member and prepare for the MCAT before entering FSUs College of Medicine. She completed her last two years of medical school at the Daytona campus. It was shortly after beginning her first year of medical school that Bellon found herself experiencing a very serious medical setback: a massive bilateral pulmonary embolism. In December 2009, Bellon broke her right ankle playing Frisbee and ended up wearing an ankle boot. Right before her first test in January, she began to experience some calf pain. Suspecting a clot, she went to get it checked out on a Wednesday, but tests did not reveal a clot. I had my first unit exam that Friday, so I thought maybe it was just anxiety, said Bellon, who was also experiencing shortness of breath. She took that exam Friday, but by Saturday, Bellon began coughing up the blood that was hemorrhaging into her lungs. She spent eight days in the hospital. I got through it with Gods help, said Bellon. She was lucky to be alive, and was offered a year off without penalty, but chose to continue. I feel like I aged 15 to 20 years, said Bellon, who was on the blood thinner Coumadin for eight months and now must wear compression stockings at work and be careful when sitting for long periods. My memory was affected, going without oxygen, she added. I went from being an A/B-plus student to fighting for Bs and Cs, but I did it! I never gave up, but there were times when I grew weary, said Bellon. My mom definitely helped me push through it. Bellon is the daughter of Jeanie Riley Bellon and Tom Bellon. The familys roots date back to Dunnellon in the early 1900s and the family still has a large presence in Dunnellon today. According to Bellon, FSUs medical school consists of two years of classroom work with some clinical work sprinkled in, followed by two years of clinical work, which Bellon spent in Daytona mostly at doctors offices but also at Halifax and Florida Hospital. Bellon spent most of college leaning strongly toward specializing as an ob/gyn. There is nothing in the world like delivering a baby, said Bellon. Its magical, amazing. Her switch to family medicine came recently. I loved everything and family medicine is everything, said Bellon. Ive always thought what a physician should be is taking care of the entire family. I love babies and I love the 99-yearolds. Family medicine is enjoyable, and if you go to work loving what you do, it isnt really work. Bellon and her fianc, Dave, reside near Daytona as she completes her residency. She hopes to eventually open her own office somewhere in central Florida. hard I try it is not a perfect world we live in. What would make my day, and other fathers day, would be a present I could really use, or at least understand without spending an entire day reading the directions. In spite of all this, I have discovered one thing; being a father is its own reward. The Bible puts fatherhood high on the list of important positions in life. David, the Psalmist, put his feelings about being a father into familiar words to all who have read the Bible. Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. (Psalm 127:3-5 KJV.) Next year, my advice is, whatever it costs, go ahead and make dads day. He deserves it.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship in Ocala.

Dunnellon High graduate who spent just one year, her senior year, in my journalism class and made a lasting impression for several reasons. First, she was the niece of one of my best friends, Lisa. Second, she was great at selling ads, a big plus. Third, she was just a great young lady allaround, academically focused and super-involved in school. When Eva Bellon told you she was going to do something, she was going to do it. She told her teachers she was going to become a doctor. And here I was, at a party with her huge family, celebrating her degree in medicine. As if it was not enough just to succeed against the odds to complete med school, Eva had also survived a near death experience in her first year. Her tenacity is commendable. It is tough to describe how proud of her I am. I know I had very little to do with her success, but I still am over the moon that she was able to succeed at such a huge challenge and under adverse circumstances. At the start of the party, her mom, Jeanie, told a sweet story about a Fourth of July long ago and how Eva had always cared for others. And then Evas grandmother, Lela Mae Evers, got up and spoke. Lela Mae Evers has always loved to tell stories. And for as long as I have known her since the 1980s I have always loved to hear these stories. Dunnellon has a rich history, and I absolutely love to hear about that history. I was treated to stories about how her son and his friend had gone to dig for old bottles in the woods and had found old tokens that had been used for money in the Boomtown Days of Dunnellon. The boys thought they had discovered gold treasure. She also told me about how she has become a cheerleader along with a handful of other graduates from the 1940s at the annual old school reunion in Dunnellon. Back in the 1940s, spirited Dunnellon students cheered on a six-man football team. They remembered all the old fights songs. Although she is getting older, Lela Mae Evers is a self-proclaimed storyteller, but she told me that Im the one who really knows how to put things down on paper. And this is where the story involves the 2005 Dunnellon High School yearbook. There was not any real reason we decided to call the 2005 yearbook Reflections of the Past, Faces of the Future except that we wanted to have this really cool mirror that reflected the into an and we just could not resist the fact that when you looked straight into the mirror you would see yourself, the face of the future. When I saw that Evers had the 2005 yearbook at Evas party, I was perplexed at first because Eva had graduated in 2004. Then, I remembered that because of the theme we had done a past section in that book where we had created a section on Dunnellon history, decade-by-decade. Although my students quickly tired of researching, I had a really great time researching for the history section, and I solicited information from Dunnellon oldtimers. Evers was the first to respond, providing me with pictures, stories and other valuable items. How about that? We had created a 16-page section of a yearbook with the help of Lela Mae Evers, about 60 years after Evers had graduated from Dunnellon, and she was so proud of it that she had brought it to her granddaughters graduation party. Whats more, she had bookmarked the pages where she had contributed. And what made that yearbook even more valuable was that Eva was in that yearbook, too, on the spring page because she had been named prom queen the spring before, and Evers grandson was also in the book, selling FFA peanuts at a football game. Evers had these pages marked as well. We had invited the alumni to meet us and tell their stories at the Homecoming football game that fall, and Evers had her name tag we had made her tucked into the book as well. The party reaffirmed my purpose. As hard as it is to raise the money every year, we have to keep on striving to produce a yearbook that someday will put that lump in someones throat. As I reflect on the book we did this year, I can think of a few stories that can evoke that sort of emotion. As we go forward, I hope that we continue to seek out and record more stories that make our yearbook priceless.

Whether its served warm, cold, creamy, cheesy or with a splash of vinegar, the dish is a true American cookout classic. Potato salads are easy to make and even easier to pack full of flavor. Craft your own potato salad by cutting a delicious, Idahopotato into cubes with the skins still on. Boil in water for about 8 to 15 minutes, then check for doneness by piercing a cube with a fork or skewer. If the fork goes through the potato with little resistance, drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Add your favorite dressing and ingredients while the potatoes are still warm. Warm potatoes more easily absorb the delicious dressing. These decadent dishes are best eaten the day after theyre made to give the flavors time to meld. When youre ready to serve your potato salad, keep it cold by placing your serving dish in a larger bowl filled with ice. Family meals are always better with delicious, flavorful potatoes. Always look for the Grown in Idaho seal to be sure youre buy ing genuine Idaho potatoes.

now until the new agreement is phased out in Fiscal Year 2017. For example, in 2014, Dunnellons new share will be .63 percent, but because it has historically been given 2.56 percent, the county will provide 75 percent of the difference between its new share and old share. In 2015, that number will drop to 50 percent and in 2016, it drops to 25 percent of the difference. The model is the same for the other four municipalities. According to the agreement, Marion County will receive 80.46 percent; Ocala will receive 17.41 percent; Belleview will receive 1.21 percent; the city of Reddick will get .11 percent; and McIntosh will receive .18 percent. The taxes at issue are: a 1-cent tax, which has been shared for the past 30 years. a 5-cent tax approved three years ago to pay off road project bonds that will run until the end of 2039. A ninth-cent tax, approved in 1989. The new deal will completely eliminate sharing of this tax. Under the current agreement, the county gets 70.1 percent of the revenue. Ocala gets 23.5 percent; Belleview and Dunnellon each receive 2.56 percent; and McIntosh and Reddick each receive 0.64 percent. All told, Marion County will net almost $2 million per year, perhaps more, when the plan goes into effect in 2017. Commissioners promised money would be available through grant processes and loans if each municipality needs it for future projects, noting it needed something in writing to provide to each city, Mayor Nathan Whitt said. I really appreciate Kathy (Bryant) going to bat for everyone, he said. I could tell she really pushed the issue. When it came to the final vote, the commissioners were asking themselves what they were going to do with all of these extra funds. Theyre going to start setting the money aside, which I just found fascinating. Theyre going to have a fund, I suppose, that we can go beg them for. If thats how its going to work, then thats what well do. Do they realize how foolish this looks? Its really crazy. However, before the proposed deal can be put into place, the County Commission will have to have a second reading and allow public comments. County officials have scheduled the second, and final, reading for 10 a.m. July 2 at the Marion County Board of County Commissioners. A new agreement must be in place before the current deal expires in August. In a memo to County Commissioners, Mounir Bouyounes, the assistant county administrator, wrote: The basis upon which the formula was established is not known. Moreover, that formula established fixed percentages of the total revenues received, which percentages remained constant there was no means of adjustment over time due to changed circumstances. One of those circumstances, County Commissioners pointed out, was the change in population growth 230 percent in unincorporated areas in the past 30 years. The board finds that the distribution formula should: a) be based on known and objective criteria; and b) have the ability to change with changed circumstances, Bouyounes wrote. Three objective and measurable approaches upon which to establish a distribution formula are: 1) respective lane miles of public roads; 2) respective transportation expenditures over the last five years; and 3) respective population. The Board finds that under any of those approaches, the unincorporated county would have been receiving additional revenues compared to the current distribution formula. Immediately going to the default formulas would have had a staggering effect on each municipality, especially the citys road and streets department. For cities such as Reddick and McIntosh, losing all of the funds would have meant a better than 70 percent cut in their entire general fund budgets. For Dunnellon city officials, losing all of the funding it received now, would have meant losses of between 75 to 80 percent of the road and streets budget, potentially staffing losses of up to 40 percent, unless it raised millage rates. Thank God for Kathy for working that in, Mayor Whitt said. Or next year, were declaring bankruptcy or wed fire our entire road and streets department. This buys us a little time to figure out a solution and come up with additional sources of funding. In April, at what now appears the final joint meeting with the County Commission and officials from the five municipalities in Marion County, Mayor Whitt proposed a value-based, do no harm equation as he spoke on behalf of Dunnellon, Ocala, Belleview, Reddick and McIntosh. The figures he presented would leave each communitys shares unchanged for the 2013 Fiscal Year; however, based on population growth on a yearly basis, the shared revenues among all six government entities would be reviewed and changed accordingly. The first-term mayor told the Commission because Dunnellon is a small community several employees are tasked with multiple jobs. He asked the county to set the rate at a revenue-neutral level at least for a year so the cities can assess the situation. I could tell at the end, some of them were regretting (the decision) they made, Mayor Whitt said. They wanted to make sure they put in place, something in writing, well be able to apply for the money they took from us. All of them seemed torn. Mayor Whitt believes in a few years, the County Commission will have to scrap what its putting into motion now. The interesting concept here is I think were going to be begging them so often, they just repeal it all and go back to where we were, he said. That very well may happen. which they learned about many facets of gardening including butterfly gardening, how to water efficiently, planting a holiday amaryllis and fertilizing appropriately to name a few. The programs were not limited to gardening, however, and included presentations such as Birds of the Rainbow River. Those same luncheons were proof that the group had great cooks since they were always delicious and presented with seasonal dcor. In fact, the groups culinary talents were so well-known they published a keepsake cookbook containing 300 well-loved recipes. There were many field trips to places like Featherstone Orchid Nursery, Plants N Things by George, Color Country Nursery and CFs Horticultural Dept. and Garden in Ocala, as well as trips to District Flower Show School and FFGC conventions. One of the highlights of the year for both the club and the community was the annual Fashion Show, which was the years biggest fundraiser. The event featured not only attractive fashions, but a delicious luncheon; proceeds were used to fund scholarships and help others in the community. The community, especially the Annie Johnson Center and Fire Department, will feel the loss of the clubs endeavors. Other community contributions were made to Food 4 Kids Backpacks and Habitat for Humanity throughout the years. One endeavor that will continue is the groups scholarship program for Dunnellon High School students. Jane Henze, who served as president from 1996 to 1998, initially organized and established the scholarship program. In 2007, the club set up The Dunnellon Garden Club Forever Lifetime Scholarship Fund, which pays out a scholarship based on the interest earned on the funds monies, usually $500 but Erline Likens, former president 2008 to 2009, hopes it will grow to $1,000. Like many groups, the Dunnellon Garden Club had a core group of older members, but it was struggling to attract new members to infuse the group with the energy necessary to undertake fundraising events, Ricker said. Its members, those 80 and older were called Golden Girls, and they always renewed their membership whether they were able to attend the meeting or not. When told of the club disbanding, one of those Girls, Alice Campbell, said: Too bad sorry to hear; I enjoyed it when I was able to go. Likens said: I hate the idea of the club disbanding happening. For years, she offered her home to continue the club in some form so watch for news in late summer. Likens offered her insight about the club, which can be read on Page 4 of todays edition. It may be a case of deadheading and the club, perhaps in its original gardening circle format, will have more blooms than ever and continue its theme to grow with Dunnellon in a different venue. The club hosted its final meeting June 5 at the Chamber of Commerce building.Riverland News, Thursday, June 20, 2013 13 Call Darlene 352-489-2731 GREGS ALUMINUM Pleasing people in Marion County since 1982 Pool Enclosure Rescreens Vinyl & Acrylic Windows Garage Door Screens Vinyl Ceilings & Much More 465-0371 746-6663 Lic. & Ins.
