Police: Man, 26, charged with DUI Greer refused to provide breath sample A 27-year-old Inglis man found slumped over the steering wheel of his vehicle parked in the drive-thru at a local fast food restaurant, was charged with driving under the influence, according to a police report. According to the report, Jacob S. Greer was found slumped over his steering wheel with his left arm hanging out of the drivers window with the keys in the ignition Sunday morning while parked in the drive-thru at McDonalds. Witnesses said Greers vehicle had been parked in the drive-thru for 20 minutes after the fast food establishment had closed. The report indicated when law enforcement personnel from the Dunnellon Police Department arrived, Cpl. Bruce Arnold noted in his report that the keys in the ignition were turned forward; however, the vehicle was not running. Cpl. Arnold and Officer Scott Houts then attempted to wake Greer up, at which time he seemed very disoriented and agitated at the presence of law enforcement personnel. According to the report, Cpl. Arnold asked Greer if he was OK to which Greer gave an incoherent response due to slurred speech. Cpl. Arnold observed Greer had bloodshot watery eyes and he could detect the odor of alcoholic beverages emanating from his breath and body. The report stated Cpl. SAVE THE PARADE: Lack of entries casts doubt on event Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. And maybe, therell be a Christmas Parade, too. Right now, plans for the annual Dunnellon Area Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade, tentatively scheduled for 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, are in a state of flux because of the lack of entrants for the parade. Its Operation Save the Parade at this point, said Ariel Bruns, the coordinator for this years event, having replaced Charlene Williams as the taskmaster. If we dont have enough entries, itll be canceled. Right now, we need support, support, support, from entries to volunteers. Bruns is optimistic the Christmas spirit will come alive in the next week as the deadline to enter the annual parade has been extended. Initially, entries were being taken through this Friday; however, because of the lack of entrants, Bruns said the deadline has been extended to Thursday, Dec. 15, for those businesses and nonprofit groups seeking to have a place in the parade line-up. I am hoping everyone comes together and makes it happen, Bruns said. I believe well pull it off. It might not be as big as it was last year, but itll happen. This years theme is Whimzy Christmas. Commercial business entry is $25 for chamber members; $50 for non-chamber members; and $10 for nonprofit groups. Volunteers are also needed to assist with the parade, AUGIE SALZER/For the Riverland NewsAustin Moore, left, and his dad, Tom Bonaccorso, were defendants in a civil case in front of Judge Judy. The show will air in the next four to six weeks. Residents make appearance in front of Judge Judy A foolish mistake turned into a trip to Hollywood, Calif., and 15 minutes of fame on the Judge Judy Sheindlin Show. On Oct. 16, Austin Moore and his dad, Tom Bonaccorso, were defendants in a civil case in front of Judge Judy. They agreed to accept her ruling in the case. Moores ordeal started a while back when he bought a motorcycle and the people he was working with at a local horse farm offered to co-sign on his loan. He was doing well until he moved to North Carolina to go to school, but he made stupid decisions, his father said. He traded the motorcycle even for the car, because it was cold outside and he was working by making deliveries for a restaurant. Then the car blew up. At about the same time, Moore had received a small settlement from a previous accident and he used the money to purchase another car and decided to head back to Florida. His dad helped Moore title the car and knew he was behind in the first car payments. I went to my dads house and left the keys in the car, Moore remembered. My dad wasnt there, but then I looked out the window and saw the people I owed money to taking the car.

Pictured with Williams are here three children, Alexis, left, Ashley, right, and Kris, background. Local bankers kidneys failing, Williams now on dialysis For the better part of a year, Charlene Williams kept the news quiet. Only her family and close friends knew why the long-time community cheerleader of sorts was slowly withdrawing from actively participating in organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce, the Boys & Girls Club, the Kiwanis Club and other vital groups key to making Dunnellon a better community. Her health was declining and she lacked the energy. Despite the urging of her family and friends to let people knowthe reason for her sudden withdrawal of being a key figure in community events, Williams chose to keep the news silent. I didnt want the attention to turn from what we were doing for the community, to do what we can for Charlene, said Williams, who made public her battle end stage renal failure, or kidney disease. I still dont want this to turn into a pity party. Yet in announcing the news, Williams knew she couldnt keep the lid on her health closed any longer. The long-time banker, who is the branch manager of Cadence Bank, had been out of work since mid-October. Her presence and laughter noticeably absent when customers would come in, just hoping to say hello and see Williams trademark ear-to-ear grin.

There is a $2 fee, which covers refreshments and expenses. For more information, call Roger B. Krieger at 352-527-0669 or Jim Beeman at 352-369-3924. Arnold asked Greer for identification, at which time Greer pulled out his cell phone and began looking through it. Cpl. Arnold again asked for ID at which time Greer rummaged through his pockets and attempted to hand Cpl. Arnold his bank debit card, then stated, I dont have my license. According to the report, Cpl. Arnold asked Greer for his name and date of birth to which Greer stated, I am going to sit right here until my lawyer comes, which will be about two to three hours. Again, Cpl. Arnold asked Greer for his personal information at which he stated, I am not that guy, I am going to wait for my lawyer who will be here in two to three hours. I used to be a police officer, I know what to do. Officer Shane Yok, who had arrived at the scene, informed Cpl. Arnold of the vehicle owners information, and when overhearing this, Greer then provided his personal information, which I later verified, the report stated. According to the report, Cpl. Arnold asked Greer to step out of the vehicle to which Greer again stated: I am going to sit right here until my lawyer gets here. Cpl. Arnold then opened Greers door at which time he stated: OK, I will get out. Upon exiting the vehicle, the report stated, Cpl. Arnold requested Greer walk to the rear of the vehicle, at which time he observed Greer sway from side to side and then stumbled, losing his balance. The report stated Greer then propped himself up against the rear of the vehicle to keep his balance. Cpl. Arnold requested Greer submit to field sobriety exercises to which he stated, I am standing here until my lawyer gets here in two to three hours. Cpl. Arnold informed Greer if he did not participate in the field sobriety exercises, he would be placed under arrest to which Greer responded: I am waiting on my lawyer. According to the report, Greer was placed in handcuffs and transported to the Marion County Jail. During a search of Greers vehicle, Cpl. Arnold discovered a 1.75-liter of Sailor Jerry Rum, which was half empty. The report stated once at the Marion County Jail, he refused to submit to the lawful test of his breath to determine its alcohol content. Greer advised he would not submit to the test to his breath without his lawyer, who would arrive in two to three hours, yet stated he was not refusing. Cpl. Arnold then read Greer Implied Consent to which he again stated he would not submit to the test of breath to determine its alcohol content until his lawyer arrived. According to Marion County Jail records, Greers bond was set at $500. He made bail late Saturday morning.

FREE HEARING TEST Man, 19, charged with battery, criminal mischief A 19-year-old Dunnellon man faces multiple charges after an altercation Friday in the Walmart parking lot. According to an arrest report from the Dunnellon Police Department, Giovanna Cintron faces charges of simple battery and criminal mischief after Cintron punched another man twice and kicked and broke a headlight on a vehicle. The report stated he did intentionally and unlawfully strike a male victim with a closed fist twice, once in the upper left arm and again on the right side of his ribs. The victim attempted to leave the parking lot, entering his girlfriends vehicle when Cintron kicked the right front headlight, causing damage. According to the report, when law enforcement officials arrived at the scene, Cintron had already left. Officer Scott Houts and Cpl. Bruce Arnold both reviewed the security footage from the incident, which concurred with the statements from both victims. The report stated authorities found Cintron at his residence in the 21000 block of Southwest Plantation Street. He was advised of his Miranda rights and chose not to speak with authorities. Cintron was observed wearing the same clothing he was wearing during the incident in the Walmart parking lot. Cintron was booked into the Marion County Jail. His bond was set at $1,000. He made bail Saturday morning.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, December 6, 2012 River views Kudos to Norm Gazaille for stepping up to help kidsIts that wonderful time of the year, and have you seen the sign at Norms Clean Cuts? There is a big sign reading: Toys for Tots. Well, Norm Gazaille, the owner, has been collecting toys for needy children for a few years now. It would be great if we all could make this a special holiday for more kids, since the need is there and seems to be growing. Also, Gazaille accepts donations of food for the Food 4 Kids program, which provides needy children with food on the weekends. Our small community, with the help of many, could do a lot of good. It all starts with one person to get the ball rolling. Kudos to Norm Gazaille, and I hope many will follow. Rosemarie KleukerDunnellon Thanksgiving dinner for needy a successThanksgiving dinner was a family occasion. The volunteers from Families In Need Dunnellon, who served, had a wonderful time. We were excited that the Cub Scouts, the Dunnellon Key club and the Teens Impact ministry from Grand View Church, were part of our volunteer team. Thanks to the Dunnellon Police Department which help get food to others. Thank you all so much. Leo and Jan DeWittFamilies In Need of DunnellonBoycott of Greenlight is residents only course of actionThe letter published in last weeks Riverland News alluding to the low cost and benefits of Greenlight had to be satire. Surely, regular readers of theRiverland News or Dunnellon residents who follow events know that it is no myth that Dunnellon City just borrowed $1.4 million dollars at .001 percent interest from the water/sewer fund in addition to transferring $300,000 from the CRA fund, a total of $1.7 million dollars. The loan is payable in 2017 if the money is available. Unfortunately, it is only available from the water/sewer fund. This is in addition to the more than $7 million of borrowed money already sunk into Greenlight. Surely, the author of the letter knows the collateral for the Regions Bank loan is the taxes collected by Dunnellon putting the city at risk for this failing venture. It is true Greenlight did create new jobs. The total salary/benefit amount for FY 2012-2013 is more than $800,000 dollars. The total Its time we make the leap I wont be playing Santa this year. Its not a bah-humbug thing. I still love Christmas, although I will never get used to a snow-free Christmas. Its a matter of not having the funds. It doesnt make sense to go into hock to buy Christmas gifts. I have my dear sweet mother, six brothers and sisters with spouses nine nieces and nephews (four with spouses, significant other or main squeeze) and three grandnieces and grandnephews. My family has kept the economy going for generations. For decades, I have bought at least one gift for every one. My siblings got away easy because I didnt have kids they had to buy for. I shouldnt say that, because my sister always bought a present for my dog when he was alive. I think I deserve to take a year off. Up until the last few years, I have bought my nieces and nephews birthday gifts. Most are in their late 20s and early 30s. They all make more money than I do. The wealthiest among them must have a broken arm, because I have never gotten a thank-you letter from her. Honestly, I really enjoyed shopping for unique gifts. For instance my sister-in-law, Charlene, likes salt and pepper shakers so if I was at an antique store I would always check them out. My sister, Maryellen, has a great collection of Whiting and Davis purses made in America beaded evening bags. Adding to hear collection made my day, especially if I got a good price for it. Carolyn loves the color purple and Japanese art. Kathy likes Jim Shore and miniature houses. Tim and Bill will love anything from the hardware store. During the year, I would look for these gifts. There is no way I am setting up a tent and standing in line for anything. The Christmas rush and Black Friday meant nothing to me. My gifts were wrapped and ready by then. I must confess to a moment of weakness this November. My niece Kelsey, who loves crafting, got married on Nov. 17. Walgreens had what I thought was a great deal on photo gifts mugs, mouse pads, notebooks. I spent hours posting photos from the wedding to each gift online. I was able to buy more than $200 worth of gifts for every member of the family for $97. Yeah haw! That moment of glory didnt last too long when I submitted the order and found the shipping cost $60. They would only ship to my address. The majority of the gifts would then have to be re-shipped out of state. My deal was turning into an ordeal! I hit the delete button and sighed. One year, I gave handmade scarves, hats and sweaters. My sister got a beautiful red wool sweater with one arm longer than The Newspaper built on Community Pride.

RIVERLAND NEWS OUR VOICE LETTERS TIME TO SMILE THE JERSEY GIRL M y granddaughters infatuation with One Direction reminds me of my own obsession with The Beatles when I was a kid. After all, theyre both from England, theyre both cute and they can both cause mad passionate screaming from their teenage fans. In case youre not aware, One Direction is the latest boy band to come from the show The X Factor in Great Britain. Of course, the natural progression to stardom involves getting acquainted with the U.S., and get acquainted they did. You cannot turn on any awards show or daytime TV program without seeing them or hearing about them. The funny thing is they seem so young to me where the Beatles seemed so old. Guess thats due to my progressing years. Actually, the One Direction guys are all 19 and 20 years old. Likewise, The Beatles were all in their early 20s the first time they came to America to play in 1964. I guess its my age thats changing, not theirs. The new group all have modern names youre not likely to forget: Liam, Harry, Louis, Zayn and Niall. Not like John, George or Paul, simpler names from my youth. Back in 1964, and beyond, theres no denying I was an avid Beatles fan. My older brother shared this enthusiasm and we had every single album the group ever recorded. We used to imitate the popular band and, for some reason, I was always Ringo, the drummer. But Paul was and continues to be my favorite. Seeing him in concert is one of the items on my bucket list that I hope to mark off one day. Who can forget watching The Beatles perform that very first time on the Ed Sullivan Show? We begged my mother to let us stay up to watch. I dont think Ill ever forget that excitement. Of course, back then the only way you could see them play was to catch a five-minute segment on a television show. So you waited all week or all month for the show to come on. Nowadays you can catch your favorite stars on TV, the Internet, Netflix, or even on your cell phone. Kids today have it made. Now Dominique is going through the same things we did. She knows the words to all of their songs, she talks about them constantly and Im sure in her mind, she pretends shell meet them one day. I think thats something all girls do. By the time I From One Direction to, ladies and gentlemen, the Beatles No, not this year Virginia F or many years now, the oft-maligned and oft-criticized debate is whether Dunnellon is, or should be, an eco-tourism destination. Should we or shouldnt we promote the natural beauty of our quaint community and let outsiders share in our joys? We already do, to an extent, but weve failed to capitalize on the full economic impact to our local coffers and more importantly, to our businesses. Frankly, we believe now is the time to act before its too late. If you missed the Ocala Star-BannersNov. 29 editorial, we suggest you check it out, because they (Marion County officials along with state and city officials) pieced together a solid plan to save Silver Springs. We believe, before its too late, residents, business leaders and elected officials of Dunnellon recognize that our future is inextricably tied to our environment. It follows then that economy is inextricably tied to our environment. The Star Banner pushed the 3 Es approach: Environmental, Economic and Educational. This plan soberly recognizes that choosing nothing is a choice and that there are consequences. What will happen in the absence of tourism may be far more detrimental than the tourism could ever be.... Adena Springs Ranch. The years of residential growth that fueled our economy are over and there is no reason to believe they are going to return soon. Maybe that is a good thing. But there are, in fact, people who are still working or perhaps not working and every area will seek an economy. Our choices are to continue to fight against tourism and ignore the real environmental dangers confronting our rivers, i.e., the fact that the river has not been a free flowing river in more than 50 years. No. 1 environmental threat to the Rainbow River is the dam on the Withlachoochee River. No. 2 environmental threat. Consumptive use permits for large-scale livestock operations. No 3. is not paying attention to Nos. 1 and 2. The city, county and state See LETTERS page 5 See JERSEY page 6 Audrey Beem See LEAP page 5 Kathleen Wallace See SMILE page 6


Greenlight budget for FY 2013 is $4,693,599. The citys own inhouse study done in 2010 projected 1,993 customers for total revenue of $2,390,404 in the third year of operation. This flawed, unprofessional in-house study is the basic reason that the city went into millions of dollars of debt. Greenlight has no operational manager, but they do have a communications manager at the cost of $42,000 annual, plus benefits. At least when Dunnellon creates jobs, they are great ones. This is just another example of the poor decision-making and management that has plagued Greenlight from day one. The low rates the satirical letter referred to are subsidized by the raid on the water/sewer fund and borrowed money secured by Dunnellon tax money. If Greenlight were a private enterprise, it would be bankrupt and no venture capitalist would loan money due to the massive debt load. To give the customers of Greenlight low initial rates and to allow the teaser rates of free installation, free months etc., the taxpayers and utility customers of Dunnellon are footing the bill. If you are a resident of Dunnellon and cannot afford cable at all, your utility money and city tax money is at risk to provide service to Greenlight customers, does not seem right to me. Rainbow Springs is not boycotting the business community or any other entity but Greenlight. To suggest that we should support Greenlight in the mistaken belief that it will eventually succeed and reduce taxes/utility rates is a great leap of faith or again great satire. It would be bad enough if the $1.4 million from the water fund went to help a financially mismanaged and unsustainable Dunnellon, but to throw money into the money pit called Greenlight calls for action. It may be true that many of Rainbow Springs residents are social security or pension recipients, but is that in any way a relevant or negative fact? I missed the satirical point of that statement, but I believe Rainbow Springs residents are good citizens, who earned what they have and give more to the area than they receive. Rainbow Springs residents never asked or took from Dunnellon coffers. The boycott of Greenlight is not petty, vindictive or uncalled for. It is the only method we have to show our disapproval and frustration at the unfair, devious and undemocratic manner we have been treated by an arrogant government entity in which we have no representation in any form. Steve Swett Rainbow Springs Kiwanis Clubs annual fashion show a big hitA very special thank you to all who participated in the annual La Chic Fashion Show sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Dunnellon. Fashions by Belks, narrated by Stephanie Perkins, general manager, was the highlight of the show, especially with our very own super models. I might add male and female. Jenifer of Jenifers Hair Studio gave a styling demonstration and Dougg Snyder, the Lancome make-up artist from Belks, fascinated all with a make-up demo. Jewelry by Karin Hopkins was displayed. A fabulous lunch was served by Chef Ernie at the Rainbow Springs Golf and Country Club. Those participating in any way gave generously of their time, spirit and giving. The proceeds from this show will be used to further the Kiwanis projects in the Community of Dunnellon. Ellen Ellie PollockKiwanis Club of Dunnellon have partnered together to bring a bicycle trail through Dunnellon. That is going to happen. This will complete connectivity with the cross Florida barge canal and could be a huge boom for Dunnellon, both economically and environmentally. If we work together to place the necessary infrastructures to see to it that dollars do not end up in communities that already have such items in place. The more revenue this area can generate to the state with tourism taxes, the more protected the water will be right where it belongs in the river bed. This does not happen without a resort or hotel located on or along the river. For many years now local officials have given lip service to the idea of eco-tourism while avoiding the obvious, namely that tourism in Dunnellon does exist. However, the real economic beneficiaries are Ocala, Crystal River and Inverness. We need to do more to help our local businesses thrive, because if the tourism dollars are pouring in, those businesses are likely going to assist financially to make sure the Rainbow River remains healthy, and city governments are not going to have to look for alternative revenue sources. We believe we can build an eco-friendly hotel or resort along or near the Rainbow River without threatening the livelihood of the wildlife or disturbing the environment. In fact, we believe we can using Leeds (environmentally friendly building practices) and create a shining example for the world to see of just how we can, as mature adults, both protect and interact with our unique environment. The points have been made and its time to act. Not only does the future of the Rainbow River need it, so does Dunnellon. If we dont move toward embracing what the city has to offer, then a few years from now, well be buying bottled water from Nestle who will own Rainbow Springs.

Library Friends to host December book sale The Friends of the Dunnellon Public Library will host a December Book Sale in the Friends Book Store Dec. 1 through Dec. 22. at the Dunnellon Public Library. The book store is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. All items will be half price. The Dunnellon Public Library is at 20351 Robinson Road. For more information, call 438-2520. even let me get my things out. I feel they strong-armed him out of the vehicle, Bonaccorso said. Then I called police and made a report over the phone. They wouldnt even come out. They said it was a civil matter. On Sept. 6, father and son went to the Marion County Court House Small Claims Court and filed a counter suit to get the car back. They were being sued by the plaintiffs to get back the money for the first car loan. A few weeks later, Bonaccorso was called by the plaintiffs asking if they had heard from the representative of the Judge Judy show. I thought they were joking, but they gave me the phone number and Austin called, Bonacccorso said. A couple of weeks later we were on a plane to California. Both the defendants and the plaintiffs had to agree to the judges ruling and they both signed an Arbitration Agreement before they left. Each group took a different plane to California and stayed in separate hotels. They were able to stay two nights and three days with all expenses paid by the show. The first night was to get settled, the next day was the show and then they were on their own, according to Moore. The day of the show, the father and son spent several hours waiting in the Green Room eating and drinking soda and watching Judge Joe Brown on television before they appeared in front of Judge Judy. Judge Browns show was being filmed at the same time in the building. Out of 10 cases heard by Judge Judy, they were the last ones to be filmed. I was nervous at first and once it got started it was okay, Moore said about being on TV. The cameras are well hidden so we couldnt see them that much. It took about 20 minutes, but Im sure they are going to do a lot of editing. After the filming, they rented a car and did a lot of sightseeing. Bonaccorso enjoyed the end of the day the best when they returned to their hotel and sat next to the owner during dinner. I dont remember his first name, but his mother was Beverly Garland, the star of the My Three Sons show. She was the second wife of Fred MacMurray on the show, Bonaccorso said. We had a long conversation and he told me about his life as a kid and all about his mom. He was a cool guy. On the flight back home, they were telling everyone that they were on the Judge Judy show. At the end of the show we were all friends, Bonaccorso said. It is really complicated. It looks like we signed the title over, but we didnt. The show paid for the remaining balance and we got the car back. The show should be on TV in the next four to six weeks and they will be notified of the date and time the show will be aired. Im going to record the show and have it on my large screen TV here in the shop, said Bonaccorso, who owns the Pizza Q in Dunnellon. Augie Salzer is a correspondent for the Riverland News. She can be reached at Augie@ ThingsinTown.com. the other. What? It took me months to make and I was tired of it by the time I got to the second arm. My knitting needs to improve before I go that route again. My family in Florida can use only so many scarves. My sister-in-law said it doesnt matter since the world is supposed to end Dec. 21, according to the Mayan calendar. If I only believed it I would be on a spending spree. Wouldnt it be nice to never have to worry about a bill coming in the mail? Could you imagine being those recent Lotto winners and the world ends before you have a chance to spend your millions? Now, thats poor timing. On the positive side, I can say I will not be contributing to the Chinese economy. If I had the cash, I would shop local and buy handmade items. It is the only way to shop. I like the idea of keeping American money in our community. Thank goodness we have so many mom and pop stores downtown. The thought of the parking hassles of a mall is frightening. I avoid the mall like the plague. A mall is China in a box. Very few stores carry American made products. It is very sad. So, no Virginia there is no Santa this year. The sled is broken. Rudolf and Blitzen were laid off. The elves are on strike. Besides Virginia, didnt your mother ever tell you that Christmas isnt about the gifts? Its about the love of family and I have that in abundance. 6 Riverland News, Thursday, December 6, 2012 was a teenager the Beatles were already busted up. So whenever Id daydream it was always about David Cassidy unable to live without me. And if David was taken, then I would switch to Keith Partridge. Im hoping some of my readers can relate. I wonder if guys do the same thing? Do they sit around and fantasize that Selena Gomez is their girl? I would like to think they do. A few years back, Dominique was excited about Jesse McCartney. I took her to see him in concert twice, and then there was Justin Bieber. I was hoping to get her to a One Direction concert, but unfortunately, ticket prices have more than doubled since then. I guess theres always going to be a boy band to drool over. When my girls were younger it was NSync and The Backstreet Boys. Oh and we cant forget New Kids On The Block, but I think this is the first time another young band from Liverpool has captured our hearts. I guess the biggest difference between the two groups, other than the number and their names, would be that when The Beatles appeared on the scene they were longhaired hippies out to ruin the world. But now One Direction is described as nice, clean cut boys with good morals. Can it be we were looking for a bit of excitement back then and now were looking to save the world? But as long as there are good looking, young charismatic boys jumping around on stage there will always be young, enthusiastic teen girls waiting to catch a glimpse of them, at least in their dreams. Let the excitement continue. JERSEY continued from page 1 SMILE continued from page 4 000DE6P SHOP LOCAL SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESS!

I just wish I had the stamina right now to do it all. Williams, whose kidneys began failing her more than a year ago, now goes through a daily regimen of dialysis. The mother of three is able to do it at home, while she sleeps, or if she can sleep, she added. She said the sounds of the machine dont keep her awake, but its the final cycle. Its the last 20 minutes because its the pain drain, she explained. So thats not comfortable. Slowly, Williams said, she is growing acclimated to the nightly routine. Getting her health in order is priority No. 1, though. She admits she misses her daily routine of seeing people. I miss seeing everyone, from my coworkers to our customers to the people of Dunnellon, she said. I miss it terribly. Im ready to go back to work, but I know I have to wait. How long of a wait she has, even Williams admits shes unsure of. She said her goal is to make it back to her office, especially after her doctors informed her she technically qualifies to file for disability. Thats not me, she said. I miss working. Beth Wear, whos worked with Williams for 3 1/2 years, said she and the other employees at Cadence miss her more than youll ever know. Shes a got a heart and soul that cant be replaced, Wear said. Shes the lifeblood of this office. Were doing what weve got to do but the team is incomplete. She completes us. She cares so much about us and our customers. People keep asking, Wheres our Charlene at? Wear said therell certainly be a celebration of sorts upon her return to work. Absolutely, well have lots of hugs, Wear said. Im sure the phone will be ringing off the hook and therell be a lot of visitors. Well treat her very gently and take good care of her. When Williams shared the news via Facebook, the outpouring of support was overwhelming, she said. The people here have been very nice and supportive, she explained. I cannot say enough to thank them all. Williams is 50-50 about seeking a kidney transplant. If she does, she said shell have to lose 25 pounds. However, the thought of taking anti-rejection medications for the rest of her life leaves her with an uneasy feeling at the moment. Im going to wait and see, Williams said. Her presence in the community is certainly missed by those who know Williams well. She has a very warm heart and she always goes out of her way to help somebody, Dunnellon Police Chief Joanne Black said. Whether its personally or contacting the right organization or people, she always goes out of her way, because she has a warm heart. Shes very much the heart of the community. Williams, known for an upbeat, positive attitude, said shes done her best to keep that with her and even laugh about what shes going through. Some days are better than others, but I am still laughing and smiling, she explained.

If prices are an issue, well work with you. If the parade does go off as currently planned, the route will be reserved. Instead of starting with the line-up at Dunnellon Middle School and winding its way through the Historic District and ending near Blue Run Park, the lineup will be at Hendrix Drive. From there, the parade will move west along East Pennsylvania Avenue, proceed to Chestnut Street and come to a conclusion. Mostly, its for safety reasons, Bruns said for the route reversal. Theres not any lighting in the area at the end of the parade, so we decided to make the switch this year and see how it goes. 8 Riverland News, Thursday, December 6, 2012 000DEH6 Faxing Copies B&W & Color Notary UPS FedEx Embroidery We gladly accept prepaid UPS & Fedex Boxes 11150 N.

R IVERLAND SPORTS/ EDUCATION Riverland News, Thursday, December 6, 2012 9 Michael Nelson, DCA basketball Michael Nelson, an seventhgrader at Dunnellon Christian Academy, tallied 15 points and 12 rebounds, including the game-winning shot as the Eagles snapped a four-year losing streak with a 25-24 victory against Grace Christian Academy. His enthusiam is infectious, coach Shane Arnold said. Sierra Oliver, DHS girls basketball Oliver averages 8 points a game and averaged 12 points per game last week. Additionally, she is averaging 5 rebounds a game and 2 steals per game as well. Sierra is a great student and teammate who makes everyone around her better, said coach Tony Maldonado. Sierra Oliver Michael Nelson BMX racer captures title at Disney Cup Dunnellon High School senior Austin Cooke has rode his way to victory yet again. The 17-year-old BMX rider competed Oct. 27 and 28 at the Disney Cup in Orlando, taking home another first-place prize in the 17-plus Open Division. Cooke was able to leave opponents in the dust when he took the lead from the starting line and never strayed from his position in first the entire 40-second race. This was the first time he had been back to the Orlando track since he had broken both his arms there last year. In the beginning, I was freaking out because it was the first time I had been back since I had injured both my arms, but in the end I was proud because I had won the race that had hurt me so badly before, Cooke said. The talented teen is now being scouted by the Nitrocross BMX Team in Texas, which he would represent as a Florida rider. Through this sponsorship, he would receive free riding gear and parts and have discounts on the parts and other items that arent free. Cooke, despite his interest in serving in the U.S. Navy, hasnt ruled out the possibility of turning his talents into a profession. If I have the opportunity I would go pro. I like doing BMX because I like having it all on me and being independent, Cooke said.

REBECCA FRECHETTE/For the Riverland NewsThe Dunnellon High School boys soccer team huddles up before its Nov. 15 game against North Marion. Injuries have hit the team hard in the past week. Soccer teams work through struggles The Dunnellon High School boys soccer team had a week of firsts. The Tigers competed in three games in a five-day span, the most so far this season. On Monday, Nov. 26, Dunnellon played at West Port, losing 2-0. On Tuesday, Nov. 27, the Tigers played at home against Palatka, falling 52 to the Panthers. Gio Bencini, with an assist by Austin Cooke, and Shane Williams scored for Dunnellon. This was also Williams first game playing offense for Dunnellon. Finally, on Thursday, Nov. 29, the boys traveled to Belleview High School and the Tigers defense held the Rattlers until the final three minutes of the game when Belleview struck for a 1-0 victory. Additionally, the team had four serious injuries plague them during their three-gmae span. Jared Byrd sprained his ankle toward the end of the Westport match. Byrd was kept out the remainder of the week, but return for future games. A season-ending injury will sideline goalkeeper Bobby Langley, sending first-yearsoccer player Robert Segarra into the box. Toward the end of match against Palatka, Segarra was taken out of the game after hurting his shoulder, forcing thirdstring goalkeeper Jake JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsMembers of the Dunnellon Christian Academy basketball team, front row from left, are: Alexa Hastings, Ryan Rowles, Levi Suarez, Danny Casanova and Norianne Nelson; back row, Joshua Hastings, Charlene Hall, Bret Howard, Michael Nelson and coach Shane Arnold. The Eagles recently snapped their four-year losing streak, posting a 25-24 victory against Grace Christian Academy of Ocala. DCA basketball team notches first victory in four years Four years ago, American sports fans celebrated the New York Giants stunning upset of the previously unbeaten New England Patriots, 17-14, in Super Bowl XLII. Four years ago, the Boston Celtics finished as NBA World Champions, knocking off the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Finals. In the Eastern Conference Finals, the Celtics toppled LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in seven games. Four years ago, NASCAR fans cheered, or jeered, Jimmy Johnsons third straight NASCAR Championship. Four years ago, the Philadelphia Phillies won the World Series against the Tampa Bay Rays in five games, 5-1. It was their first world championship since the Mike Schmidt-led Phillies in 1980. Four years ago was also the last time the Dunnellon Christian Academy basketball team secured a victory on the court; but that all came to an end when the Eagles broke their streak with a 25-24 victory against Grace Christian Academy of Ocala. Dunnellon Christian Academy found itself trailing by 14 points throughout most of the first half, until the Eagles began whittling away at Graces lead during the second half, DCA coach Shane Arnold said. The second-year coach explained one key for his squad was taking Graces star player out of the equation. Arnold said the standout had gotten into early foul trouble in the first half and during half time, he told his players to attack in the second half. We were really aggressive, we really went after him, Arnold said. From there, Arnold said his team just kept chipping away at the lead until Michael Nelson hit the game-winning shot with two seconds remaining in the contest. Nelson has been on the team for the past four years. Youd have thought we won the world championship, Arnold said about the ensuing celebration. The victory, Arnold said, has been a major boost to the confidence of the team. You could really sense we were close earlier in the season, 000DEH7 BOWLING SCORES Parkview Lanes Weekly News League scores for the week ending Nov. 30: Monday Night Special: Handicap: Larry Fritz 276, 722; K.E.

Gifts make a difference to teachers D ecember is always that time of year when kindness becomes a daily focus. We want to give others something to recognize how much we appreciate them, how hard they work and what they have done for us during the past year. Frequently, school administrators are asked: What can I get for this teacher, assistant, cafeteria worker, dean or bus driver? The list could be endless; but lets start with the least expensive sit down with a piece of paper and by hand write a note thanking them for helping your child. These handwritten notes mean more to them than any thing you could purchase. Another no cost, but great idea is to send a letter to the editor of a local paper expressing what a wonderful job your childs teacher is doing. Rarely do happy parents write good news to the papers. Next might be something from $1 to $10 food gift cards such as McDonalds or Subway. That morning cup of coffee on the way to work would be great, or lunch at Subway when you forgot to pack one or ran out of money for the caf. On now to deluxe, where the sky is the limit: adopt the class for the remainder of the year. Send $150, which would give the teacher $25 per month to spend on the class. Or get a $150 gift card for your favorite department store so they can shop the after Christmas sales. We love having your children at our schools and wanted you to know we appreciate your supporting us. Reading a book to your child every night before bed lets them know reading is important to you. Reminding them to use DMS band members tune up for holidays T he Winter Concert at Dunnellon Middle School will be from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11, in the DMS auditorium, under the musical direction of Ms. Kristina Roblow, DMS Band Director.

An invitation is extended to the Dunnellon community to attend the concert and join DMS as we get into the holiday spirit. The DMS Beginning band will have a rehearsal from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6, in the DMS band room. We would like to take a moment to recognize the following musical artists for their dedication and time committed to mastering their chosen instrument and to our parents for the generous gift of their time.

PRINCIPALS OFFICE JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland News Tania Garcia Milan, Bellmalyz Chevere, Celina Garcia Milan and Melissa Clarke chose cupcakes after their number was called Nov. 16 at the United Way cupcake walk fundraiser. DHS students raise $1,812 for United Way of Marion Co. How many laps does it take to win a cupcake? Senior Brittany Harrod knows. I walked two laps and won a chocolate cupcake! Harrod said. But why did Harrod, alongside a crowd of 530 other students, walk laps around Dunnellon Highs track to simply win cupcakes? We all paid $2 and the money was for United Way, freshman Jessica Morgan said. Its good that we can help the county and all. And I got 7 cupcakes, so I guess I was just really lucky, right there every time. With an abundance of delicious cupcakes made by staff, teachers and student government, Dunnellon High collected 1,186 cupcakes, which resulted in a total of 296,500 calories consumed by Dunnellon students. All of these cupcakes and $2 ticket sales resulted in Dunnellon High collecting $1,060 to send to United Way, which was then turned around by the charity and given back to the Dunnellon community to local childrens groups, such as the Boy Scouts. Dunnellon High has also offered another way for the students to donate to such a charitable foundation through Dunnellon Highs annual Student versus Staff basketball game Tuesday, Nov. 20, when members of the girls and boys basketball teams faced off against some very well experienced teachers on the basketball court, such as chemistry and physics teacher Robert Ayton, and boys basketball coach Travis Licht. Senior Chris Jackson took off full speed after recording a steal, ending in the one and only slam-dunk of the game, rattling the staffs composure, and lifting the students spirits as their skills excelled with the boosted play from Jackson. Im a dunker. thats what I do, the senior basketball player said. I do it all the time. The same as the cupcake walk, admission into the game was $2 per student, but with 325 students opting to attend the game, a grand total of $752.70 was raised to go toward United Ways charitable actions in the community. The students played well, keeping the game close until the end, but ultimately falling to the staff, on what some spectators say was due to biased referees. None-the-less, great plays came from many students, including a few well-planned plays from brother and sister Tanika and Andre Jackson and Jordon Loyola.

Dunnellon High Schools FBLA students are dressing teddy bears and stuffing stockings for the less fortunate. Club sponsor Linda Molloy has been leading students in this project for the past 28 years. A group of retired telephone workers called the Telephone Pioneers provide the bears and stockings, and all one must do is call the Salvation Army and let them know how many bears and stockings they would like to order. Molloys students teamed up with Julie Edisons Advanced Fashion Design students, who hand-made the clothing for their bears. The FBLA students receive two community service hours for each stocking and one hour for each bear dressed. Ive always been taught that it is better to give than receive, said Molloy, whose son, Ryan, a senior, led the group by dressing a total of five bears. Local business, Cuttin Loose Salon, added four bears to the mix. In total, 58 bears and 45 stockings will be distributed to children in the commu nity.

We have produced many wonderful pieces of original art as we study the old masters, the impressionists and cubists painters of the past. Each grade level and many classes are working of different projects. We continue to transform our knowledge in the art room into new masterpieces. Most grade levels are learning science in the art room as we become little chemists with paint mixtures. The fall shows are over and we really made a splash with our work at the FAFO (Fine Arts for Ocala) show this year. Those pieces will come home soon. As your student reads about new things in their studies, have them draw a picture of it. They will understand the new ideas more completely if they can draw and imagine things about the new ideas they read about.

The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage will corroborate this confession. So many things confuse me; I am not sure where to begin, and once I begin, where in the world will it stop? I have been married for over 41 years but I must confess, not to the same woman. Oh yes, it is the same woman with the same name but it is not the same woman I married 41 years ago. Where is that young woman I married? When first married, I thought I knew everything there was to know about women and wives in particular. I do not know if it is the ensuing years but I am rather confused about this whole matter of being married. I suppose that is the mystery of romance. If you ever figure it out it loses its charm. Romance without charm is just an old man and an old woman who have lived together for 41 years. That is just one area of confusion. I harbor no aspiration of unconfusing my level of confusion in that area. There are other areas I could work on that might be a little more productive in this regard. An area particularly that has me greatly confused is the Christmas season with all the Christmas decorations including the ominous Christmas tree. Oh, how I love that old Christmas tree and decorating it and celebrating the whole Christmas spirit. What has been confusing me for the last several years is this uncertainty about the season. Some people do not want to call it the Christmas season; rather they refer to it as the holiday season. What I want to know is, what holiday are we celebrating in December? I know the holiday we celebrate in November, and the other holidays sprinkled throughout the year. In July, for example, nobody calls it a holiday parade. It is the Fourth of July parade, for Petes sake! In February, nobody calls it a holiday banquet. It is a Valentines banquet.

I suppose with all the holidays in this country throughout the year it would be simpler just to call everything a holiday. That would simplify things and help those who cannot keep up with the calendar. I am all for that. It seems the only squabbling that goes on is during the month of December. Actually, the squabbling begins before our turkey dinner has finished digesting. Maybe some people get too much turkey in their system and it clouds their thinking. All they have to do is squabble about something and so the only thing in front of them is the Christmas season. I get that. What I do not get is the level of anger directed in this direction. It would seem that the Christmas season offers a huge threat to our society. We cannot call our Christmas tree a Christmas tree; it has to be called a holiday tree. Everybody knows, the word Christmas tree is some kind of code inviting disaster on our society. I have never heard anybody define or describe what that disaster would look like. What amazes me is simply that this is a huge issue in some peoples minds. Nothing is more dangerous to society than this. The word Christmas carries with it more danger to our society than the ominous financial cliff we are facing, the threat of terrorism in our own country and Lindsay Lohan at 4 a.m. What is more confusing to me is that these people who are trying to protect our society from anything religious wants to substitute the word Christmas for the word holiday. It just shows the level of education in our country has not kept up with the times. I know it has been a long time since I have been in school, but I do know that certain words have certain definitions. Do the people who object to anything religious understand that the word holiday comes from the phrase holy day? I am not a PhD but I do know that the phrase holy day has religious roots. So, I am really confused along this line. On the one hand, we are not to use the word Christmas because of its religious connotations. At the same time, we are supposed to use the word holiday which in every dictionary in the land means holy day. I could be corrected along this line, but in my thinking the phrase, holy day has some very distinct religious roots. When I hear somebody complaining along this line, and they do it so vehemently, I have a question as to their sanity. It does not make sense to me. Christmas is a holy day but we are not allowed to think of it as a holy day just use the term holiday. Now I am really confused. Is it a holiday or a holy day? Is it sacred or is it secular? What holiday does a holiday tree really celebrate? I like what the apostle Paul wrote, Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days (Colossians 2:16 KJV). I will not allow any mans objections affect my celebration of the Christmas season. To quote from a great secular classic, God bless us, everyone.Rev. James L.

You could also sense there was some frustration that we were close, but not able to pull it out. Now that his team has that first win the books, Arnold expects a different outlook for the remainder of the season. We know how to win, he explained. For Arnold, the past season and half has been equally as challenging for him as his players. Arnold had served at Ocala Meadowbrook Christian Academys athletic director and coach for several years prior to taking the job at Dunnellon Christian Academy. At Meadowbrook, victories came on a frequent basis. I knew I had a hill to climb coming here, Arnold said. But I looked forward to the challenge. I think Ive become a better coach from this experience. Its really allowed me to teach the kids the game, because basketball isnt just about shooting the ball. You really have to be a student of the game. After his inaugural season, Arnold challenged his players to hone their skills throughout the summer. Several players participated in a Summer Recreational League in Ocala, where they competed against players their own age. The Eagles roster consists of players from fifth through eighth grade. Most of their opponents rosters are a mix of sixththrough eighth-graders. In addition to the age gap, Dunnellon Christian Academy has three girls on this years team after allowing a girl to compete last year. We really have a mixture of talent on this team, Arnold said. Theyre getting better on a daily basis. We just have to continue working toward improving every day. Not only are the Eagles in the win column, Arnold will certainly get his dose of exercise the remainder of the season. During the victory, Arnold never took a seat as he had done throughout the early part of the season. Looks like Ill be standing every game through the end of the season, he joked. But hes OK with it, because if it means hes walking, then the Eagles can spread their wings and fly. SOCCER continued from page 9 FLY continued from page 9
