Thursday, August 22, 2013 Vol 31 No. 43 75 cents WHATS HAPPENING Parties await judges rulingSix years of legal wrangling regarding the proposed Rainbow River Ranch is about to reach its pinnacle, but as to whether Judge Steven Rogers will rule in favor of a non-evidentiary hearing or an evidentiary hearing has yet to be decided. Judge Rogers told the parties involved in the settlement agreement last Thursday he would provide an answer quickly, but a week has passed without a ruling. A non-evidentiary hearing is favored by the city of Dunnellon, the state Department of Economic Opportunities and the proposed developers, Rainbow River Ranch LLC and Conservation Land Group LLC. All three entities agreed to the settlement deal and signed off on it almost a year ago. However, the interveners, consisting of Rainbow River Conservation Inc., a local environmental group, and several individuals, want an evidentiary hearing. Such a hearing could last up to approximately three days, allowing Ralf Brookes, a Cape Coral-based attorney who is representing the interveners, the opportunity to bring forth expert witnesses and testimony as well as new evidence discovered since the settlement was approved in September 2012 by the Dunnellon City Council.BMAP Meeting slated FridayThe next Rainbow Springs BMAP meeting will be at 2 p.m. Friday at the Dunnellon Public Library. The FAR notice may be viewed and agenda downloaded by following www.dep.state.fl. us/water/watersheds/ bmap.htm. For information, email Terry J. Hansen, environmental consultant with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, at terry.hansen@ dep.state.fl.us. Greenlight deal hits minor snag A last-minute surprise of a mysterious group of would-be bidders, which never materialized, caused a touch of uneasiness for officials with Wideband, Eddie Esch told the Dunnellon City Council. The whole experience set the bidders back, Esch explained, adding, we had hoped to be further ahead of where we are at this point. Esch and John Pierpont of Pierpont & Associates LLC had been hopeful they would be able to provide more information as well as a potential agreement for Wideband, which is a shell company used to complete potential transactions for the parent company, Florida Cable. Esch said the acquisition of Greenlight is one of three deals the company is currently working on. Still, the mystery bidders emergence was unsettling news and caused delays the city can ill afford. As it stands, the city will not have enough Eddie Esch John Pierpont Legendary shot Photos special to the Riverland NewsMichael Douglas with the Harlem Legends works with a young girl during one of the youth camps the group offers prior to its charity basketball events.

Report:Modest surcharge necessary Study suggests reduction of surchargeCompletely eliminating the surcharge on customers outside the city limits would put the burden of cost on taxpayers, the Dunnellon City Council learned Monday night during a presentation by Burnham & Associates. That news didnt sit well with Rainbow Springs residents who have long sought a repeal of the current 25 percent surcharge levied since the city purchased the Rainbow Springs and Juliette Falls utility systems in December 2011. The study, presented by Andy Burnham, showed two potential avenues for the City Council to decide. One, raise the rates for Rainbow Springs and Juliette Falls to 100 percent of what city users are currently paying and reducing the surcharge to 10 percent. Doing so, he explained, would actually reduce further rate increases because as it is now, Rainbow Springs currently pays 85 percent of the rate with 5 percent increases set to continue until 2016. Juliette Falls pays 80 percent and would not reach 100 percent until 2017. However, with any potential rate increases in the coming years, those residents would be saddled with the extra 5 percent, plus the percentage of any rate increases and the 25 percent. If the Council opted to raise their current NANCY KENNEDY/For the Riverland NewsPatty Wagstaff arrived recently at the DunnellonMarion County Airport from St. Augustine to deliver rescue dog Coco to Dunnellon resident Sonny Everett. Wagstaff works with SAFE, Saving Animals from Euthanasia Pet Rescue, and flies animals to their new homes. Organization offers animals a SAFE haven Its not every day that a rescued dog gets a free airplane ride from a U.S. National Aerobatic champion pilot. But recently, Coco, a Scottish terrier mix, was the featured passenger on a flight from St. Augustine piloted by Patty Wagstaff. Wagstaff, who works with SAFE, Saving Animals From Euthanasia Pet Rescue, flew Coco to meet his new owner, Dunnellon resident Sonny Everett. Wagstaff and Everett, a retired commercial pilot and author of the book, Fliers, have been friends for more than 30 years, having met when Wagstaff was just beginning competing in aerobatics and Everett was an air show announcer. Air show people are like a family, and weve kept in touch, Everett said as he waited for Wagstaff to arrive from her 30-minute flight. Wagstaffs impressive resume includes: sixtime member of the U.S. Aerobatic Team and winner of the gold, silver and bronze medals in Olympic-level international aerobatic competition; first woman to win the title of U.S. National Aerobatic champion and one of the few people to win it three times; bush pilot in Alaska; six-time recipient of the First Lady of Aerobatics Betty Skelton Award; Retired Globetrotters to play benefit game at DHS The retired Harlem Globetrotters, now called the Harlem Legends, are coming to Dunnellon to host a celebrity basketball show this month. Bringing the wellknown athletes to the area was the idea of Geri Davis, cofounder of the recently formed charitable organization called Christians in Action (CIA). This is going to be a family fun night that will also help the low income people and families right here in Dunnellon, Chatmire and Citrus Springs, said Davis, about the charity game scheduled for 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 31, at Dunnellon High School. Davis and Susan Lebrun, co-founder of CIA, were helping support the Haiti missionary through their church, but decided they wanted to do more by helping out in their community. The ladies took their idea to Dr. Abraham Robinson, pastor of the Second Bethel Missionary Baptist Church, and he agreed with them. We were incorporated last November, Davis said. We were going to help with food, but found there are a lot of places that do that. So we decided to augment the food pantries by giving out clothes, soap and toiletries.

SECONDCLASSPERMIT#681-730POSTMASTER:Sendaddresschangesto: RIVERLANDNEWS,20441E.PENNSYLVANIAAVE.,DUNNELLON,FL34432-6035 Carmellas undergoes minor facelift Eatery renovates dining roomWhen Carmellas closed its doors in July, it wasnt because the longtime Dunnellon eatery was preparing for a permanent shut down. It was for the annual one-week summer vacation, but for owners Ralph and April Carmella and a handful of others, it was an intense week of remodeling for the 13-year-old family owned restaurant. I had a lot of people who asked me how my vacation was, Ralph said, chuckling at the notion his vacation consisted of 14-hour days spent readying the store to reopen. It took six days to put it all together, but it was time and it was worth it. Customers have noticed the changes, too, he said. Among the remodeling work done, the Carmellas took out the carpeting and replaced it with hardwood flooring, adding modeling, repainting two of three dining sections with the third yet to be completed. The feedback has been tremendous, he added. We did have some regular customers who thought we up and sold the place, but were here, were open and were excited. Ralph Carmella said typically restaurants undergo remodeling every 10 years, and said making changes to their eatery was long overdue. The couple opened their establishment in Dunnellon 13 years ago after relocating from New York, where they owned and operated another restaurant for 20 years. What hasnt changed is the family friendly atmosphere which the Carmellas offer their customer base. I like the place, its so friendly, said Jerry Banta, a regular customer for the past four years who eats at Carmellas up to four times a week. They typically know what I want before I even make it through the door. The changes are good. Its definitely made it look newer. As Banta stabbed at his salad with a fork, Ralph Carmella said its customers like Banta who make coming to the shop daily worth it. Ive really gotten to know Jerry well, and hes a fabulous guy, Ralph Carmella said. He probably knows our menu better than I know my own menu. Ralph Carmella stressed the importance of getting to know the customers. The business is like home to me, we spend a lot of our time here every day, he explained. So when folks come in, we feel like they are coming to our home and we want them to feel welcome, we want them to come back. I dont have a door leading to my kitchen, I never have in 30plus years weve owned a restaurant, and its because I want people to be able to say hello when they come in. And part of making them feel like family and sharing recipes handed down from generationto-generation is how Ralph Carmella grew up. He said he was part of large family he was one of seven children and mealtime was important, especially when visiting his grandparents. It was part of the law of growing up in an Italian family, but when the grandparents were having dinner on Sundays, everyone was expected to be there, he explained. So it wasnt a surprise when you had a meal and there were 18 to 20 people there. Thats how it was, and I want folks to enjoy the recipes Ive been taught. Im the fourth generation to learn these recipes. I want folks to enjoy their meals.

funding to continue operating the system past the end of August. For that reason, the company has asked to keep the financial aspects of the deal private, an assurance Esch said would be done to protect the ongoing negotiations. This is an extremely, extremely complex deal, Esch explained. Its unique in that its going from public to private; if it was private to private, everything could be kept quiet. But we have rules to abide by, and they understand that. According to the citys special legal counsel Bryant, Miller & Olives the city can keep the financial aspects of the deal under wraps for 30 days. We want nothing to hinder this deal, Esch said, explaining he told officials with Florida Cable that the citys focus is to strike a deal for the sale of Greenlight with its company, no other entity. We will keep everybody abreast of everything going on in the discussions. Pierpont explained he and his associates will confirm the Letter of Intent (LOI), which he described as the bones of the deal. Then, because of the uniqueness of the sale, two agreements will need to be completed a deal allowing Florida Cable to take over the operations of Greenlight as a subcontractor, while the final sales agreement is completed. Theyve asked, if for some reason the deal falls through, for a promise to get the money they invest into running the operations back, Pierpont said, noting a few minor changes need to be made to the initial LOI. Additionally, Pierpont was to have a conference call with officials from All-American Leasing, which owns the lease deal for the head-end equipment currently used by Greenlight. The city still owes $1.1 million on the equipment lease. Esch also told the Council the city does not have to file a notice with the state regarding a financial emergency, because as of now, the city hasnt reached a dire situation. That, he said, would only occur in November when the city must pay Regions Bank $1.6 million. Delaying a notice helps in the sale of Greenlight, he added. State officials could potentially freeze the sale, Esch explained. Overall, as far as a cash flow, we know we are in a tight spot. If we sell Greenlight, its the reason the city would avert a financial disaster. Selling Greenlight is the top priority, Pierpoint and Esch explained. It would allow officials to then have a better understanding of the debt remaining and how it could help with negotiations with the bank. As it stand, the citys share of excise taxes have been pledged to help pay off any outstanding debt from the bonds. Wed hope we could work out a long-term deal for a certain number of payments for a certain number of years, Esch explained. Harold Horne, the citys onetime community development planner, suggested the City Council look into creating a Utility Authority in which it could combine Greenlight and the citys water/sewer enterprise. He pointed out the city could sell all of its utilities to pay off debt for both systems. Esch, however, explained the city has looked into that option, but the lone option available would be to sell the water systems to FGUA, a government-owned utility organization. Esch said FGUA could purchase the water systems, but it had no interest in Greenlight, because it strictly deals in water, sewer and power. Vice Mayor Dennis Evans supported the idea of creating a Utility Authority; however, it was met with resistance from other members of the Council. How much time do you think we have? asked Councilman Erik Collop, explaining due diligence would need to be completed for the process to be feasible. Evans suggested it be brought to legal counsel for an opinion about its feasibility. We might ask them if its legal, but I wouldnt ask them if it was feasible, Collop said. I think its the 11th-hour and we have an opportunity to possibly sell (Greenlight). If we make it another two weeks, weve done pretty well. We dont have the time, nor the ability to wait any longer.

Plus, she flies rescued pets at her own expense to their new homes, within a 200mile radius of her home in St. Augustine. When she arrived in her red, white and blue Beech Bonanza, Wagstaff handed Coco over to Everett and said he had been a good passenger. Hes a good match for Sonny, she said as she handed the pooch to her friend. The dog has issues; hes very protective of just one person. Two couples have tried to adopt him, but he bonds with just one person and wont let the other one near him. She said she does this for the love of pets and the love of people. She also does it, and writes about it in Plane & Pilot magazine, to encourage other pilots to use their planes for good causes. A lot of people have airplanes and dont fly them enough, she said. One of the reasons to fly your airplane is to help animals help people. Just think of the ways pilots could help if more would fly their planes.

HAVEN continued from page 1 GREENLIGHT continued from page 1 fees to 100 percent, plus a 10 percent surcharge, those users, like residents inside the city, would only be subject to approved rate increases by the Council, meaning everyones rates would be the same. Ive shared this information with a lot of people in Rainbow Springs and the feedback isnt good, Burt Eno told the Council, adding the lawsuit against the city regarding its surcharge could be classified as a class-action lawsuit. Reducing the surcharge doesnt help any. Councilwoman Lynne McAndrew fired back. What rates would you like to see Rainbow Springs residents pay? she asked. Eno paused. Were not happy about the surcharge, he reiterated. We simply would like to pay the county rates. Currently, Marion County utility users, on average, pay approximately $93.41 for water and sewer at 3,000 gallons with irrigation use of $10,000. City utility users, for the same usage amounts, pay approximately $96.02. Burnham pointed out later in the meeting the Marion County system has 28,000 users while the city system has 2,800 users and comparing rates for the two systems is wrong. The second option would be to eliminate the surcharge completely and charging everyone the same rates; however, as the report showed, users within the city limits would pay approximately 5 percent more than utility users outside of the city. If the Council, which did not take formal action Monday, chose to go with option No. 1, utility rates would see an increase of 4.79 percent for Fiscal Year 2014, with an increase of almost 8 percent in 2015 and 2016, with 5 percent increases in 2017 and 2018. However, if the Council opted for option No. 2, users inside the city would see increase of 10.65 percent in 2014, with almost 8 percent increases in 2015 and 2016 and 5 percent increases in 2017 and 2018. I dont think so much of your study, Rainbow Springs resident Joan Duggins said. We had no say regarding the purchase. Until the surcharge is removed, and the rates are returned to what they were, we wont be happy. I resent having to bail you all out. Mayor Nathan Whitt thanked Burnham & Associates for their thorough work on the report. That was awesome, Whitt said about the study. To see the complete study, visit www.river landnews.com.

Deakins,Board Member, Marion County Veterans Helping Veterans, U.S. Navy, Vietnam Veteran Rails to Trails could benefit local businessesIve been curious about the Rails to Trails program, so I went on the Internet to see what it was and I must say, its a really big deal, really big. There are way too many sites describing this program to put in one letter, but needless to say, Dunnellon should not dismiss it. The Rails to Trails Conservancy (RTC) is a nonprofit organization of trails and greenways that is working to build and preserve an interconnecting system for the purpose of recreation and conservation. In the assortment of websites, it mentioned that this network brings job opportunities in construction and maintenance, helps the small businesses through tourism and boosts real estate in the communities near their trails. The RTC gets its money from donations and grants and then uses this money to rehabilitate old rail lines and other lands into trails, parks and greenways. In the meantime, they are looking for folks to work in the construction and maintenance of these places. According to the websites, towns located near these trails will benefit from the trails in the form of tourism dollars, with trail riders looking for supplies, clothing, restaurants, souvenirs and Riverland News going Pink again We have a new addition to our family. No, not the third grandchild Ive been praying for. This child has four paws, fur and weighs 67 pounds. My husband said shes a dog, but I think she may be a tiny pony. The problem is we already have Roxanne, who is a Maltese and very territorial. I told my husband she would never allow another dog into her space. When my in-laws visit with their dogs, Roxy terrorizes them and barks the whole time. She wants to make sure that we know theres a stranger in the house who doesnt belong, and if the other dogs accidentally eat out of Roxys princess bowl she is done with that bowl until we sterilize it in the dishwasher and remove all the evidence. The new dog is an Australian Shepherd and her name is Patches, which doesnt really fit her personality. Besides, isnt Patches a male name? Were thinking of changing the name to Pepper or Sadie or something cute, but she answers well to the name so we dont want to confuse her. Roxy weighs 4 pounds, but acts like shes 60 pounds and Patches is 67 pounds and acts like shes as light as a feather. You should see the two of them together. It is a funny sight. Were hoping Patches doesnt step on Roxy one day and squash her. Patches is the sweetest of dogs. She is tender and lovable. There is nothing sweet about Roxy at all. My mother-in-law lovingly calls her the Tasmanian devil. Our new edition is only a 1year-old, so shes still a kid and likes to play. Only her idea of play is strong and rough. She already knocked my husband over in the yard and if were not careful this is going to happen often. She also likes jumping up on people when they first come into the house, which is something we need to break her of. When shes on her hind feet, shes bigger than the grandkids and my mother. The big dog thinks shes playing with the little dog, but shes actually terrorizing her. She does this thing where she leaps and pecks at Roxy, who in turn simply bites Patches on the leg or butt, whichever she can manage to reach. Roxy is 7 years old and not into playing anymore. Shes way too mature and sophisticated for that.

OUR VOICE LETTERS JERSEY GIRL STATE OF THE CITY Hello everyone in greater Dunnellon. Its been about nine months since I took office and I think we all knew the many challenges that were before the new Kid Mayor, the Puppet Mayor, etc., as well as the City Council. We had a red-light problem, we had a Greenlight problem and we had a listening problem. I have worked diligently to end two of those so far. No more pesky red-light cameras, and I continue to work very hard at listening. Listening is not always so easy, is it? During the past three or four years weve seen and heard many folks, including myself, talking with council, even pleading with our City Council and administration about matters that affect all our citizens, but many of those voices went ignored or unheard. We are now faced with the ramifications of that type of governance. When government decides it knows whats best for us and we lose our voice, its un-American and expensive. As can be expected, being on Council was a bit rocky at first, but I feel that this Council is now working well together in finding common ground and common-sense solutions too many of the issues that were created during the past administration. I am the eternal optimist and I know that Dunnellons best days are ahead of us. For instance, as citizens, you should know that your city staff is working around the clock to move our city forward. Be it city administration, the clerks office, our public works department or Dunnellons finest: the police and fire departments. We are very proud of what all these folks do! We wouldnt be a great small city without them. I must also applaud the efforts of Interim City Manager Eddie Esch, who stepped up when very few would have to lead this city toward a more businesslike, transparent form of government. Ive never seen someone work so hard to learn so much, and in such a short amount of time. We are truly lucky to have him and if you dont believe me, try keeping up with him for just one day. Theres so much information to process, itll make your head spin. The Council recently voted to move forward with the potential sale of Greenlight Communications. By the time former City Manager Lisa Algiere resigned in May, we learned that Greenlight was losing more than $250,000 a month. As many of you know, the consultant who we hired to bring Greenlight to solvency, John Pierpont and Associates, quickly determined our possibilities were limited. We then asked our accountant, Richard Powell of Powell and Jones CPA, to do a midyear audit determining our financial stability going forward. It was then decided that we had to act and act fast. Greenlight was losing money quickly and had eaten into reserves and bond proceeds. We are now at a crossroads for our fair city. Once Council has agreed to a deal with the top-ranked bidder, we can work to find a resolution with the bond lender and hope to keep the Greenlight debt off the backs of us, the citizens of Dunnellon, who did not ask for this enterprise and would certainly prefer not to eat its losses. It is a wonderful product that will soon be in the capable hands of a private enterprise that knows this highly competitive industry much better than we do. Our biggest mountain to climb as a city is the division that was created over the purchase of the Rainbow Springs water and sewer facility. Our neighbors in the beautiful community of Rainbow Springs have been in an uproar for far too long about this issue. To that point, they felt they had to file a lawsuit that may soon go class action meaning all in the class will be part of the suit. I certainly understand the bitterness and division the previous administration created, but I and the current administration are struggling to find solutions. I certainly hope that our neighbors can help us in reaching a compromise. That is the key word here, compromise. Just this week, we have proposed dropping the water and sewer surcharge on out-of-city residents from 25 percent to 10 percent. We have even looked into removing the out-of-city surcharge completely. Removing it does, however, increase the city resident water and sewer rates by about 11 percent as opposed to 5 percent with the out-of-city surcharge. We should all understand very clearly, without paying into the city ad valorem tax base, water and sewer customers outside city limits get the administration side of the water and sewer system for free. This leaves the burden on the backs of the taxpayers inside the city to pay for the administration of the water and sewer customers who may live outside the city limits and not pay ad valorem property Council, staff working hard to resolve financial issues Its a dogs world Come October, the Riverland News, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, will honor the millions of women and men who have bravely fought the disease, or are fighting the disease. And with that being said, we want to know about it. We want to hear from you. We want you to share your fears, your hopes and dreams, your struggles and your road to recovery from a disease that claims more than 40,000 annually in the U.S. alone. Perhaps youre a former doctor who treated breast cancer patients. Youve seen firsthand how far technology has helped women, and men, battle it. Youve seen how important self examinations play are in detecting the disease early enough to give patients better odds in their fight against cancer. The facts and figures about breast cancer are startling, according to the American Cancer Society. In 2011, an estimated 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among women, as well as an estimated 57,650 additional cases of in situ breast cancer In 2011, approximately 39,520 women are expected to die from breast cancer. Only lung cancer accounts for more cancer deaths in women. In 2011, about 2,140 cases of breast cancer are expected to occur among men, accounting for about 1 percent of all breast cancers. In addition, approximately 450 men will die from breast cancer. And age, the ACS reports, plays a part in those who are diagnosed with breast cancer. Breast cancer incidence and death rates generally increase with age. Ninety-five percent of new cases and 97 percent of breast cancer deaths occurred in women 40 years of age and older. During 2004 to 2008, among adult women, those 20 to 24 years of age had the lowest incidence rate, 1.5 cases per 100,000 women; women 75 to 79 years of age had the highest incidence rate, 421.3 cases per 100,000. The decrease in incidence rates that occurs in women 80 years of age and older may reflect lower rates of screening, the detection of cancers by mammography before 80 years of age, See LETTERS page 5 See JERSEY page 5 Audrey Beem Nathan Whitt See VOICE page 5 SHARE YOUR TALEIf you have a story youre willing to share, email editor@riverlandnews.com or regular mail, Riverland News, Attn., Jeff Bryan, 20441 E.

taxes within the city. Finally, Im sure youve heard the nasty rumor that Dunnellon gave way too much for the Rainbow Springs Water Utility. Youve heard time and again the city paid double the appraised value. This is absolutely false. The appraisal of the utility ranged from $4 million to nearly $11 million, with an income valuation of nearly $8 million. We paid slightly less than $6 million and this was probably the smartest move that the last administration made. It should have been a win-win for both communities and Rio Vista. Yes, the process and rate-structuring was handled poorly. However, that is behind us now, and this Council is committed to finding a way forward. The Rainbow Springs utility, along with the Rio Vista connection, will be a building block for the preservation of Rainbow Springs as well as providing greater Dunnellon with more flexibility in terms of water distribution. Most important, the service area that was created with the purchase of the Rainbow Springs, Rio Vista and Juliette Falls water systems holds the key to the future of greater Dunnellon. We are coming to the end of another fantastic summer and I have learned a great many lessons in the nine months since I was elected. I am confident, that with the help of a new administration and a fully functioning Council, we have avoided a nearly catastrophic financial disaster. Our city will emerge stronger than ever from this series of challenges. Soon, with the completion of the billion dollar trail as Ive been calling it, the connection of the Withlacoochee State Forest trail and the Cross Florida Greenway trail will create nearly 200 miles of hiking, biking trails that connect right here in our town. This will help move Dunnellon forward into our future as an ecotourist friendly, walkable, bikeable community. Ill try to contain my excitement and save all of that for my next column. Come to the Council meetings. We are listening. and/or incomplete detection. During 2004 to 2008, the median age at the time of breast cancer diagnosis was 61 years. This means that 50 percent of women who developed breast cancer were 61 years of age or younger at the time of diagnosis. Daunting figures to be sure, but with advances in medical care throughout the years have been remarkable and shown to be of great assistance. But, lest we forget, women are tough, resilient and amazing. Without women, where would man be? Women are not just women. They are daughters, sisters, mothers, grandmothers, aunts, best friends, wives, soul mates and help mates. Men, women are the ying to or our yang. Lets all do our part to help the millions of women, and men, affected by breast cancer on a yearly basis. If you have a story youre willing to share, email editor@riverlandnews.com or regular mail, Riverland News, Attn., Jeff Bryan, 20441 E. Pennsylvania Ave., Dunnellon, FL 34432..

Real estate will benefit because the diehard outdoor enthusiast will look for houses located as close to these trails as possible. These folks want to roll out of bed and get onto the trails without having to drive to them and, according to one website, they are willing to pay a pretty penny for that luxury. What would Dunnellons contribution to the Rails to Trails be? Very little, except for some cooperation. The RTC is already set and has been working toward its goal since 1986. Dunnellon doesnt have to contribute 1 cent to reap the benefits unless it wants to donate to the RTC. Because of its goal toward conservation, one website stated the RTC also helps with local conservation programs. Its up to Dunnellon to look into this, because this town cannot depend on the volatile income from property taxes and needs to diversify its cash flow. Marketing Dunnellon as the senior rental Mecca does nothing for the town. First, that blurb related more to the subdivisions around us than the town itself. Second, I considered that writing insulting to the senior population. My interpretation of the story was that someone buys a house; then puts a person of expected limited lifespan or mobility into it, the landlord collects the money and when the senior goes, the house is sold. The landlord invests nothing in the health and welfare of the town, because if things get too ugly, he just sells the house and moves on. Our seniors are not ATMs. Todays seniors are more active and more health conscious than ever before and expect more from life than getting planted into a house to wither and die while making someone else wealthy. By the spring of 2014, the Rails to Trails will be a reality in this area and the tourist dollar could be part of our towns economy, or bypass it completely. Its up to Dunnellon to choose, but our local businesses should not give up. However far the Rails to Trails goes in our area, we should still let these folks know that the business community of Dunnellon is here to serve and that travelers of the Rails to Trails system are welcome here. A.C. Rosier,DunnellonTurnout for climate forum well attendedMore than 60 people squeezed into the small community room Aug. 17 at the Dunnellon Public Library to learn more and rally our interest in climate change. The event was hosted by Organizing for Action, working with Citizens Alliance Network for Dunnellon Outreach. Dr. Wendell Cropper, an associate professor of Biological Modeling at the School of Forest Resources and Conservation at the University of Florida, helped the audience imagine a future in which climate change was left unchecked. He predicted we could continue to see more severe wildfires, more erratic and severe storms like Hurricane Sandy and sea level rise. Dr. Cropper has been working on climate change issues since approximately 1985. Mike Kennedy from Duke Energy spoke about the companys response to climate change and explained how Duke is planning to use more natural gas in its efforts to decrease carbon emissions. Kevin McMonigle, CEO of Solar Lights and More in Ocala, with Rick Zay, explained how solar energy could be an alternative clean energy source in the future. Dale Crider, an environmental troubadour, introduced the morning forum with a set of songs about energy. Congressmen Richard Nugent and Ted Yoho were invited to the event, but declined to attend. Our citizens would like congressmen to stop the denial and address the climate change issue. The group has purchased two books for the representatives to assist with their education about the serious climate change issue. Organizing for Action and Citizens Alliance Network for Dunnellon Outreach will deliver the books to their offices in the days ahead. Jon Brainard,Citizens Alliance Network for Dunnellon Outreach VOICE continued from page 4 LETTERS continued from page 4 to see if it will work. My biggest fear will be can we afford two dogs. After all, that means two vet bills, two grooming tabs and one more huge mouth to feed. Roxy eats one of those Little Caesars packs each day, which cost approximately 80 cents. Patches came with a 20-pound bag of Kibbles and Bits, which she has devoured already. We may have to take out a loan to feed this monster. However, Ive always loved big dogs. German shepherds and collies have always been my favorites. I also like the Irish setters and cocker spaniels. Its sometimes hard to keep those larger breeds in the house though, and they tend to shed quite a bit, too. The Maltese breed has hair, like humans and is hypoallergenic. Roxy doesnt shed at all, which has been nice. We are trying to put Patches food in one room and Roxys in another. The funny thing is that both of them are only eating out of the others bowl. Yep, Roxy, the snooty dog who hardly likes any dog food has now started eating Patches kibbles. The other day, we caught Roxy slipping under Patches legs and taking a bite out of her bowl while she was eating. We figure if Patches didnt retaliate, then they may be OK together. But like I said this is just a trial to see if it will work. My husband has more confidence than I do, but, of course, hes the one who rescued Patches and brought her home. Im just waiting until my neat-freak husband empties the vacuum bag and sees all the animal fur in there. We may be looking for a good home. But, of course, shes such a good dog that several of our friends have already told us they will take her if we cant keep her. Perhaps, we should leave that decision up to Roxanne.

FAMILY FEATURES Making dishes worthy of a choice restaurant menu doesnt mean spending hours in the kitchen. Its more about choosing topdrawer ingredients and here are a few you can pick up in the deli department. Theyre all members of an elite club of authentic foods made according to traditional methods and are certified PDO (Protected Denomination of Origin) by the European Union. Grana Padano, a cheese made only in the Padana Valley in Northern Italy, is terrific for easy but sophisticated dishes. Prosciutto di San Daniele is a special ham, produced in San Daniele del Friuli, in the Northeast of Italy, and like all PDO products, it must pass the strictest inspection. Parmigiano Reggiano, renowned for its complex flavor, is made exclusively in Parma, Reggio Emilia and three other neighboring Italian provinces. Prosciutto di Parma a delicately flavored, all-natural ham, is produced in the gently rolling hills near Parma. With legendary European foods, its easy to make restaurant-quality dishes like these. For more serving ideas and information about the PDO system, visit www.legendsfromeurope.com. Introducing Montasio CheeseMontasio, with a savory, wellbalanced flavor, is new to many Americans, but its origins can be traced back to a 17th-century monastery. To this day, it is made only in northern Italys Friuli Venezia Giulia and East Veneto and has earned membership in Europes hall of fame as a PDO product. Young semi-soft Montasio is terrific on a cheese platter or on sandwiches. Aged Montasio can be grated for pasta, risotto and other dishes. Parmigiano Reggiano-Spinach PuffsYield: about 3 dozen 4 cups baby spinach (6 ounces), cooked, cooled 3/4 cup flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper 3/4 cup milk 5 tablespoons butter 3 large eggs, at room temperature 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) coarsely grated Parmigiano Reggiano Preheat oven to 400F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Wrap spinach in a towel, squeeze until dry; chop fine. In small bowl, mix flour, salt and cayenne. In medium saucepan, bring milk and butter to a boil. Remove from heat and add flour mixture; with wooden spoon, beat until it thickens and pulls away from sides, about 1 minute. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well until incorporated. Stir in spinach and cheese. Drop rounded spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets, spacing 1 inch apart. Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm. (Puffs can be held at room temperature up to 1 day or frozen; reheat in 400F oven, 3 to 5 minutes.)Bruschetta with Skillet-Seared Mushrooms and Grana PadanoYield: 4 portions 4 slices country-style bread 4 ounces Grana Padano, coarsely grated 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 pound crimini mushrooms, thinly sliced 1 small red bell pepper, cut in 1/2-inch pieces 2 cloves garlic, cut in slivers 2 teaspoons flour 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1/3 cup half-and-half Preheat oven to 400F. On baking sheet, toast bread until crisp, about 10 minutes. Scatter one-third of the Grana Padano over toast. In large skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil; add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until they give off liquid, about 5 minutes. Stir in bell pepper and garlic; cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat.

Enjoying a casual evening at home, I reclined in my favorite easy chair reading, while the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was chatting on the telephone. I rarely pay attention to telephone conversations. After all, I only get one side of the conversation, which may be misleading at the very best. Ive been caught in that trap before with some pretty dire consequences. Im not going to get caught again. Then an odd phrase caught my attention: plastic surgery. My ears perked up and I heard my wife say, I certainly agree with that article and Im going to do some plastic surgery myself. Well, you can imagine what thoughts were racing through my head. When she hung up the telephone, I queried her about it. In my book, plastic surgery is a big step. You do support me in this plastic surgery plan, dont you? There are times to disagree with your spouse, but as a husband for more than 40 years, I have never discovered that time. Forcing a smile, I nodded in the affirmative and told her she had my full support in whatever she decided. I had to admit that the time had finally come to our humble abode. Who am I to fight it? I go by this motto, He who smiles and agrees with his spouse lives to smile another day. I plan to smile until the day I die. I never really thought about plastic surgery, but perhaps my wife was right. Perhaps she could use a little facelift. For me to get a facelift, the surgeons would need a huge construction crane. Then comes the awkward part, what do they do with my face after it was lifted? Women, more than men, are a little sensitive about their appearance. For a man, appearance means he showed up. A woman has an altogether different approach to the term appearance. Some women look in the mirror and see where some improvements could be made. For example, they see bags under their eyes that could not get through the airport carry-on luggage size requirement. Then there is the problem with their nose, which could stand a little tweaking. For all practical purposes, one of those double chins has to go. Moreover, what woman couldnt use a tummy tuck and other snippings of the flesh? Believe me; I never would have brought it up, but if that makes my wife happy, then whatever it costs, we can put Frank G. Gebhardt, 78Frank George Gebhardt, 78, passed away at home Aug. 10, 2013, after a long illness.

Church calling all local history buffsDo you have photographs and other items that would help tell the story of Dunnellon Presbyterian Church? Are you a member of one of the founding families of the church? Do you know someone who is a descendent of one of the early families? In preparation for the rededication of the newly renovated bell tower and sanctuary, the church is looking for photographs, historical artifacts, mementos and other items that tell the history of the church. A search is also underway for members of the founding families, near or far, who may be contacted for the celebration. Please bring items in a well-marked bag or container to the church office. Photographs and information may also be sent to dunnpres church@bellsouth,net. For information, call the church office at 4892682.Church to host quarter auctionThe Altar & Rosary Society of St. John the Baptist Church will sponsor a Quarter Auction at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, at 7535 SW U.S. 41 in Dunnellon. Doors will open at 10 with the auction starting at 11. Paddles with the participants number will be sold at the door for $2 with a list of instructions about how the auction is run. It is recommended that participants bring rolls of quarters with them for the bidding. Once the auction begins, a vendor will present one item to be given away and the vendor will determine how many quarters will be asked for the item. Each item will have a bid of at least one quarter, with a maximum of four quarters, which will be determined by the vendor. Quarters will then be collected and then given to the vendor. A number will then be drawn corresponding to the participants paddle number, which will determine the winner. If a number is drawn that has not participated, they will call out no bid and another number will be drawn. After the intermission, the vendors will participate again, with all the proceeds going to the Altar & Rosary Society. For information, call Janice at 489-1184. it on a credit card. The only problem with putting something like this on a credit card is that by the time you pay it off you need another procedure. She is worth it in my checkbook. I have no compunction whatsoever of writing out that check. Each day I checked the appointment calendar hanging on our refrigerator to find out when she would be going in for the surgery. Daily I looked, but could never find any appointment. I supposed she was sensitive about the whole thing and did not want it staring at her day after day on the appointment calendar. Whatever the reason, she had my silent support, for all that was worth. I am sure she would do the same for me. That is what marriage is all about. Supporting one another in the developments of life, whatever that development might be. I decided to tuck this little bit in the back of my mind and, however it developed would be all right with me. One day this week, I went to the Slurp N Burp Caf for a quiet lunch. The issue was far from my mind as I enjoyed a delicious repast. As I finished my last cup of coffee, the waitress brought my bill and I pulled my wallet out to pay for it. In searching my wallet for a credit card I discovered, much to my double chagrin, that there were no credit cards to be found. Somehow, Id lost my credit cards. Perhaps, in the morning when I was getting dressed, they dropped out of my wallet as I was placing it in my trousers. The problem with that theory was that all the other cards in my wallet were intact. Fortunately, I had my cell phone and called my wife. Honey, Ive lost all my credit cards. Im here at the restaurant and I cant find any credit cards in my wallet. Do you have any idea what I did with my credit cards? I cut them all up. You did what? You said you supported my plastic surgery plan, didnt you? But, I thought ... You, thought what? Oh boy. Dear reader: please disregard the first part of this column. If you happen to read my obituary in next weeks newspaper, you will know that my lovely, vivacious, eternally youthful wife did not disregard the first part and Im currently resting in pieces. I must confess that my hearing is good; it is my understanding that falls so far short. The only exercise I am really good at is jumping-toconclusions. This is common among many people who call themselves Christians. Their hearing is good but their doing, is not up to par. The apostle James understood this truth quite well. He writes, But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves James 1:22 (KJV). It is not so much what you hear that pays dividends in life, but what you do.Rev. James L.

The cars are sold at auction and the funds generated help support their many programs. People wishing to donate their cars or for information call 800-246-0493. The Womens Club of Dunnellon is gearing up for its first meeting, which will be at noon Thursday, Sept. 12, at its Clubhouse at 11756 Cedar St. Joanne Schemery, the newly installed president, has announced a revised format for awarding donations to Dunnellon charities in order to more evenly distribute the fruits of the Clubs labors to deserving organizations. The total amount earned from all fundraisers will be divided up at the end of the year amongst a predetermined list of charities. An increase in dues should almost eliminate the number of collections made at the regular monthly meetings, affording more time for speakers, lunch, socializing and, otherwise, enjoying each others company. Activities tentatively scheduled for the year include: Giant Yard Sale in October; a craft show; the annual fashion show; and the soup-a-thon. Other ideas are in the initial planning stages. New officers for the year are: Joanne Schemery, president; Betty Mello, first vice president; Gerry Hess, second vice president; Carole Wagner, treasurer; Barbara Waugh, recording secretary; Lorraine Ricca, corresponding secretary; Treva Matthews, immediate past president. The Board of Directors are: Cathy Monsee, ways and means; Joan Lindell, publicity; Ginny Scott, newsletter; Joan Cothern, social and tour director; Rosemary Kunz, house; and Treva Matthews, building. New members will be imitated at the Sept. 12 meeting. New members must submit applications to Gerry Hess as soon as possible due to limited space. For information, call Joanne Schemery at 465-7161.

I played with the world famous Globetrotters from 1986 through 1993, Douglas said by telephone. In 1991, I founded the Michael Douglas Youth Foundation (MDYF) to help individuals and communities to realize their potential. This is a form of entertainment to help organizations help themselves and teach youth how to succeed in the game of life. About a week before the game, the Harlem Legends will do motivational speaking at the different schools in Marion and Citrus counties. We are trying to get in touch with the schools and principals, but we dont have a schedule yet, Douglas said. We have an FCAT pep rally that is great. The Harlem Legends are a group of former players of the Harlem Globetrotters and a combination of NBA and NFL athletes. The men will play a friendly game against the CIA volunteers, which will include the local police, firefighters, community leaders and teachers from the Dunnellon and Ocala area. The halftime entertainment will be provided by No Slack, a Motown Group from St. Petersburg. They have played at the former Blue Moon restaurant, which was located in the Historic District of Dunnellon. The Legends will also have a concession table with large and small basketballs, T-shirts and caps for sale and the proceeds will go to the MDYF. Good food like hamburgers, nachos and drinks will also be available during the intermission at reasonable prices, according to Davis. Advance tickets are $10. Tickets at the door will be $13. VIP tickets are $25 and will include a seat in the first two rows, close to the door parking and a program. There will be a basketball clinic at 3 p.m. for a $25 fee. Anyone wishing to purchase a ticket, but is unable to attend the game, can donate their tickets to the Boys & Girls Club of Dunnellon. For more information or to buy tickets, call 489-6332.

UW seeks KidCare community partners United Way of Marion County has joined a statewide effort to help more uninsured children receive health care benefits at a price their families can afford through Florida KidCare, and is currently seeking companies and agencies in Marion, Hernando and Citrus counties that are willing to help by becoming a KidCare community partner. Many families who are eligible for coverage dont even know it. United Way has found that community partners can help give greater access to families with uninsured children. By helping families secure health care for their children, companies will receive monetary rewards for their efforts. The incentives for each KidCare community partner is $10 for each new approved application and $5 for each renewal application plus a bonus paid for reaching a minimal monthly goal. United Ways goal is to enroll as many eligible children as possible. If you would like to become a KidCare community partner or have questions, call Faith Beard at 352-732-9696 or email fbeard@uwmc.org. Special to the Riverland News NEWS NOTES
