Terrence Brooks isnt big on attention, so it came as little surprise when the Florida State standout was overcome with emotion Sunday afternoon at Eugene Martin Park. Brooks, whose family surprised him with a Welcome Home Birthday Celebration, was in the midst of thanking family and friends for their support, not just the past four years during his career as a Seminole, but as well during his endeavors throughout his youth and prep careers. During his speech, Brooks paused in an attempt to choke back the tears. I can do this, he said. But it was all too much. I cant do this, he explained, passing the microphone to a family member. Thank you all so much. His family and friends gave the NFL hopeful a raucous ovation nonetheless in his first return to home since the Seminoles captured the NCAA Championship with a 34-31 victory against Auburn in the BCS title came in Pasadena, Calif. Since then, Brooks has been busy preparing for a shot at a career in the NFL. Since the Seminoles championship, Brooks spent time in Texas preparing for the annual NFL Combine, which wrapped up Feb. 25, where the former Dunnellon High standout wowed pro scouts with several spectacular performances in a variety of skill drills. The two-year starter at free safety for Florida State had the fastest time in the 40-yard dash 4.42 seconds among all safeties as well as a top performance in the vertical jump. He was fifth best in the broad jump. All told, multiple draft experts and websites have Brooks ranked as one of the top six safeties available for the NFL Draft, which is slated for May. But Sundays focus was to congratulate Brooks for his accomplishments thus far, and what lies ahead.

Sweetbay might become IGA in potential deal The acquisition of 73 Sweetbay stores by WinnDixie parent company Bi-Lo Holdings is on hold in some communities including Dunnellon. Last May, Bi-Lo announced it has entered an agreement with the Delhaize Group to acquire Sweetbay and two other supermarket chains. In October, Bi-Lo announced, once the transaction closes, it will retire the Sweetbay banner name and those stores will convert to the Winn-Dixie banner to reduce overlapping market footprints. Conversion was expected to begin in the first quarter of 2014. However, the Federal Trade Commission determined the acquisition would harm competition in several local markets in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Last week, the FTC announced a settlement with BiLo that preserves grocery store competition in 11 local geographic markets in those Federal agency announces settlement with Bo-Lo PAT FAHERTY For the Riverland News See SWEETBAY page 3 Brooks wows at combine Key performer in 3 eventsEntering the NFL Combine, Terrence Brooks was considered, by most experts accounts, one of the top six safeties available in the upcoming NFL Draft. The former Florida State standout certainly did nothing to dispel that theory; instead Brooks might have raised his stock significantly after his performance. The former Dunnellon High standout clocked the fastest time in the 40-yard dash at 4.42 seconds. He was also a top performer in the vertical jump (38 inches) and fifth in the broad jump (119 inches). Its competition, he said. I love to compete and really enjoyed the opportunity Entering the NFL Combine, Brooks was projected as anywhere from a thirdto fifthround selection. However, he might have boosted his profile into the second round. Brooks isnt finished yet, far from it. Hes got one more opportunity to impress professional scouts at Florida States annual Pro Day, slated for later this month. It was definitely a good experience for me, he said about the combine. Brooks said the weeklong event was more about players mental abilities than their physical abilities. There was a lot they threw at you, he explained.

Family, friends and city dignitaries gathered to honor the former Florida State standout for his collegiate career and his birthday as the NFL hopeful has his eyes set on Mays NFL Draft. Family, friends celebrate title, birthday with NFL hopeful For the past two years, Becca Frechette has gone hog wild, if you will, to raise not just awareness about the importance of mammograms, shes also been cognizant some women arent able to afford the costs of the much-needed screening tool to detect breast cancer awareness. During her sophomore year in FFA and while showing her hog at the annual Southeastern Youth Fair (SEYF), Frechette watched with interest as a fellow competitor used his chance to raise awareness for Hillcrest Academy, a school for autistic children. The student donated the proceeds from the sale of his hog to the school. Frechette was not only impressed, she was inspired. So she began researching potential ideas to tie in with raising a hog while the proceeds from the sale could be used for something more than money in her bank account. When word spread about what the then-junior was attempting to do, Joey Weisbaum, a cancer survivor at First United Methodist Church, pointed her in the direction of the Michelle-O-Gram. The local nonprofit organization raises funds to help provide low-cost mammograms to women in Marion, Citrus, Levy and Sumter counties.

In addition to the one-onones with individual franchises, team executives would throw out potential schemes and scenarios. They really test your knowledge of the game, he said of the interviews. Among the teams Brooks interviewed with were the Denver Broncos, the Kansas City Chiefs, the Green Bay Packers, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Miami Dolphins to name a few. I sat in a meeting with John Elway, Brooks said, still almost in shock from having a discussion about football with the two-time Super Bowl Champion and NFL Hall of Famer. It was pretty amazing. Brooks isnt overly concerned by where he has the opportunity to play when it comes to the NFL, so long as he receives the chance. It really doesnt matter, honestly, he said about his team preference. Its been my dream for a long time to play in the NFL, so Im just hopeful I can live that dream. Brooks does believe the team that drafts will him will land the best safety available in the draft. I dont say that, because Im cocky, he explained. I say it with confidence; its how I carry myself. Brooks also believes what he learned at the NFL Combine, he can carry with him into Florida States Pro Day. Theres a lot they teach you about how to improve your game, he said. I have been and will continue to work on that.

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 County 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 heath 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.

According to the FTCs complaint, Bi-Los proposed acquisition of the Delhaize stores would likely harm consumers through higher prices, diminished quality and reduced service levels in Dunnellon and 10 other communities. Dunnellon would go from three full-line retail grocery stores to two. The proposed order settling the FTC charges requires the merged Bi-Lo/Delhaize to sell 12 stores. Subsequently, Bi-Lo has agreed to sell the Dunnellon Sweetbay to Rowes IGA Supermarkets. Rowes currently operates five supermarkets in the greater Jacksonville market. The order states this remedy will restore the competition that otherwise would be eliminated in these markets as a result of the acquisition. The agreement is subject to public comment for 30 days, continuing through March 27, after which the FTC will decide whether to make the proposed order final, withdraw it or modify it. Mitchell J. Katz, FTC spokesperson, said the commission will respond to all public comments and the comments will be posted online. He said it is uncertain how long the process might take.

4 Riverland News, Thursday, Thursday, March 6, 2014 RIVER VIEWS The Newspaper built on Community Pride. Publisher Gerry Mulligan Sales Leader/Manager John Murphy Editor Jeff Bryan Member of the Florida Press Association RIVERLAND NEWS Did editor miss signals, fail to follow-up?Here I am back on the defense again. So, I was a bit rough on the editor without being specific. Well, when Greenlight Communications was being proposed there was a letter printed from a former cable company executive, now retired, who pointed out instances where communities tried fiber optic and ended up selling for pennies on the dollar. The letter was printed, but there was no follow up. Next Lisa Algieres whiz kid arrives and, soon thereafter finds, an excuse to quit. Was that a red flag? Obviously not enough to do some fourth estate archaeology. So, am I nit picking, or were these real signals that something was amiss? I am still in Deidre Whitts corner and fully understand Nathans frustration with the process, particularly when the end result was that obvious. This is a nifty little town that needs to succeed and I want to see Nathan and the Council do it. I am really tired of the schoolyard bullies to the north intimidating their neighbors and trying to do the same to us. Grow up. They have always worked against us and never tried to work with us. I wonder if that thought ever crossed their minds? In summation, Jeff I am sorry you missed some good opportunities for in-depth reporting. Nathan, you do not owe me an apology as I share your frustration and pray for you to succeed.Dan Lumsden, presidentBlue Cove Civic AssociationMayor not the lone official to cross lineReference is made in the Our View to the Public Code of Conduct and that Mayor Nathan Whitt breached it with his so called outburst. I have read the citys Codes of Ethics and thought they applied to all council members, staff and those in attendance. How then do you excuse certain council members lengthy criticism of Eddie Esch? I left that meeting before it was adjourned, because I could no longer take the ridicule heaped upon Mr. Esch. I admire him for being the gentleman he is and sitting there listening to their bashing of him. Are you picking and choosing who you apply the rules to? Perhaps Mayor Whitt overstepped the line in the sand, but we are all human and I personally feel he reached his breaking point with the opposition he has bucked since he took office. The City Council and staff will Columnist: Get off your duffs, folks Ive very rarely had such a strong reaction to a movie as I did Conviction, starring Hilary Swank as Betty Anne Waters, a single mother who works tirelessly to free her wrongfully convicted brother, Kenny, of murder. Now, Im not sure the true story got to me or if it was the camaraderie I felt toward this woman and her feelings for her brother. Even though I may have taken a different approach, I have no doubt that I, too, would have never given up. In 1983, Kenny was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. When Kenny tries to commit suicide, his sister, Betty Anne, swaps waitressing for law school to become a lawyer and prove his innocence. Against all odds, she unearths DNA evidence to clear his name and, after 18 years behind bars, her brother finally walks free. Along the way she sacrifices her marriage, as her husband is skeptical and unsupportive, and eventually they split up At one point, her two sons decide to go live with their father, because she has limited time to spend with them. But her faith never faltered as she stated: I never doubted for a second that he was innocent. At the end of the movie, Kenny tells her that her love for him was the only thing keeping him going. It was knowing that somebody out there loved him that much. Thats when I really lost it and sobbed like a baby. When you add the element of unconditional love for a sibling, or for anyone for that matter, you cant help but think, Do I have that in my life? Thats an incredibly inspiring thing. Nobody knows me better or loves me more unconditionally than my brothers. Your siblings have seen you at your best and your worst. They watched you grow, and they taught you things while learning from you at the same time. Your lives revolve around each other and intertwine through the years. They share your wildest laughter and deepest tears. Its hard to believe, but Ive never felt jealousy or malice toward my brothers. I would do anything for either one of them. If they need me, Im there. Back in 2011, Dominic went through a very painful divorce and I was there for him every step of the way, sometimes talking two or three times a day. Then in 2013, it was Bob who needed me and I never hesitated for a moment. Likewise, they have both been there for me through lifes trials and tribulations. But how much are you willing to do or give up for your sibling? Could you donate a kidney OPINIONS INVITEDThe opinions expressed in Riverland News editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.Viewpoints depicted in political cartoons, columns or letters do not necessarily represent the opinion of the editorial board.

TIME TO SMILE LETTERS JERSEY GIRL GUEST COLUMN Just when it was starting to feel like the governor and the Florida Legislature might be trying to head in the right direction and get the water right, things look like they are headed south again. Gov. Rick Scott recently suggested putting money in the states budget to assist with Everglades management and improvement in water routing to minimize the disastrous impacts seen this past summer in the Indian River Lagoon putridly polluted runoff waters released into the lagoon from Lake Okeechobee apparently killed hundreds of dolphins, pelicans and manatees over this past year. Even though Scotts proposed budget amount for the Everglades is a pittance compared to what is needed, it seemed like a positive start. State monies were recently spent with great fanfare to clean up some of the states springheads, including the Chassahowitzka spring in southwest Citrus County. It is well known that it is going to take serious action upstream of these springheads to stop the nutrient and water consumption problems, but again, these springhead cleanup projects seemed to be a good start. And Southwest Florida Water Management District employees have tried hard to keep local citizens informed of progress on these spring projects. There seemed to be a few other good signs of recognition by elected state officials of our water problems and, hence, potential problems for Floridas future. But not so fast, my friend: Enter Pam Bondi Floridas attorney general, who surely receives direction and supervision from our own Gov. Scott joining some 20 other state attorneys general with formal letters supporting a lawsuit by the American Farm Bureau Federation filed against the feds and the state of Maryland for (gasp!) cleaning up Chesapeake Bay! She, Bondi, claims her only desire here is to stop federal overreach, i.e., to stop a cooperative environmental cleanup program between six states, the District of Columbia and, yes, the federal government. How does her action make any sense? Its embarrassing. Whens the last time you ate an oyster or crab harvested from Chesapeake Bay? That bay is a mess kind of like Indian River Lagoon. Then right behind Bondi comes Florida Panhandle Rep. Jimmy Patronis with proposed legislation (HB 703) to eliminate or severely limit Florida counties and municipalities from managing and regulating their own local development and projects impacting our environment. Remember, the Florida Legislature two years ago dismantled Floridas growth management laws and the state department responsible therefore. The reason given was, gosh, the local county and city governments could handle all that stuff. Is there a pattern here? Is there a decided approach to dismantle the substance of 40 some years of environmental consciousness promulgated by bipartisan Florida governors and legislators? Looks like no one will be overseeing development or long-term planning or you name it in Florida, a state that has now has almost 19 million residents and millions more annual visitors. Guess who supports this bill, H.B. 703? Is it the same folks who are suing Maryland because they are trying to clean up Movie pulls at writers heart strings Ineed yall to stand in for me. Can you do that for me? I cant be in two places at one time. Its easy work, all you need to do is smile, be friendly and make people laugh. The strong among you may have to do a little light lifting. You will definitely have fun. I would appreciate your help. You see, every year I volunteer to work at Boomtown Days, which falls on April 26 and 27 this year. I do a lot of volunteer work. Its rewarding and I meet some really nice people. Well, this year I have a prior engagement. I wont be able to attend. Most of my volunteering will take place before the actual date, getting sponsors, putting up fliers, etc. Since we are not capable of cloning ourselves yet, I need yall to stand in for me. I dont think I would clone myself given the chance. We all know one of me is enough and if you dont believe me ask my family. I need a few of you to step up to the plate. This newspaper sure prints a lot of letters from people who like to complain about the state of Dunnellon. This is a chance to put your money where your mouth is. Week after week, the paper prints requests for volunteers to help at Boomtown. Guess how many people have called in? Nada, zip, zilch. After the event, there will be plenty of opinions about why they didnt like the way this was done, or the way that was presented. In other words, I think we have a lot of whiners and not enough doers. I am a doer, the go-to girl. Can you stand in my shoes for a few hours and volunteer? I dont mean to be negative, because we do have a nice core of people who volunteer for all the goings on in town. Year after year, we can count on Doug and Boy Scout Troop No. 452. Last year, I worked with a young man who helped me take down the tents. I was very impressed with his civic attitude and willingness to help. The ROTC and Young Marines are also another group of fine young adults who care about their community. We also have a great business community. Harmony Pre-School, Home Outfitter, Perkins Dentistry, the Boys & Girls Club and Holy Faith Church are a few of the regulars who are willing to spend a few hours of their time doing something nice for the community they live in. There are folks you know you can count on year after year. I am grateful to you all. The doers rock! You dont have to be affiliated with any company or organization.

NOT SO FAST, MY FRIENDS See GUEST page 5


their own Chesapeake Bay through planning and, yes, regulation of farming and development practices? Over the long haul, fair and well thought-out regulations are job savers, not job killers. And finally, along comes Speaker of the House Will Weatherford, who proclaims he is punting the water stuff to next years legislative session. He acknowledges that Floridas water issues are real and have been a long time in the making and will take a long time to solve. It is very hard to understand how a responsible leader in our state government could make such an illconsidered statement for non-action. It is a problem. It will take a long time to solve it. So ... lets put it off another year? Kudos to State Sen. Charlie Dean, along with four other Florida senators, who have drafted a proposed bill aimed at protecting and enhancing Floridas dying springs, and really, our fresh groundwater resources for drinking, irrigation and industry use. Sen. Dean, in a recent presentation at the annual meeting of the Friends of the Crystal River Wildlife Management Complex, explained the bill he was instrumental in drafting. He cited the proposed bill as long overdue and the right thing to do for our state. These five state senators and their proposed bill need our strong support through citizen letters and phone calls to elected officials, such as our governor and other state senators and representatives. Sen. Dean, along with getting his proposed bill passed, will need to fight to quash H.B. 703. Patronis bill opens the door to the old days in Florida totally unmanaged growth along with an apparent path to privatization of our water resources. Guess who is already strongly lobbying against Sen. Deans bill? You got it lobbyists for agricultural and development interests. Dont get me wrong, I personally like agriculture, chambers of commerce and home builder folks many of us have relatives and good friends in these groups. I like Rep. Patronis; several of us met with him this past summer to express our concerns about his bill that passed last year, further weakening water management districts in Florida. I like jobs being created here in Florida and good pay for employees. Positive cash flow into our state is probably good. However, if we mess up what brings people and businesses to our beautiful and unique state, we can kiss it all goodbye. Selling or polluting our natural resources to the highest bidder to get re-elected as governor or attorney general or legislator is dead wrong. Maybe many have never seen a Florida spring in the wild and maybe some could care less about the environment, but we taxpayers will pay the bill to try to fix the mess if our water is not properly managed Help Sen. Dean get his bill passed and kill HB 703.Gary W. Kuhl is a former Citrus County administrator.

6 Riverland News, Thursday, Thursday, March 6, 2014 Brooks life will be altered in May on two separate accounts. First, hell graduate from Florida State University with a bachelors degree in sociology with a minor in psychology. Brooks will also become a father, as he and his longtime girlfriend, Caitie Cox, will welcome a son. Were blessed and so very proud of him, said Sara Brooks, his grandmother. Hes very laid back, not big-headed at all. Hes stayed very level-headed during his time at Florida State and throughout the past few months. His aunt, Joanne Jones, credits Terrences ability to remain level-headed throughout the past four years to his upbringing in the church as well as the support from his family and the community. Hes always dreamed of this, she said about playing in the NFL. Now, hes close. Hes been a role model to so many and inspiration for others to do well. A potential professional career and a standout collegiate career aside, everyone agreed what the biggest accomplishment is: a college education. Thats the main thing, Sara Brooks said. Thats always been the main thing. He was able to use football to obtain his college education. Now, no matter if playing in the NFL works out for him or not, hes got the college degree to fall back on. That is whats important. Added Jones: They cant take that away. Terrence also gained additional hardware to put in his budding trophy case. Mayor Nathan Whitt presented him with a Key to the City. The last recipient to earn the honor was the Dunnellon High School softball team in 2010, which won the Class 4A State Championship as well as the USA Today National Title. In addition to receiving a Key to the City, Dunnellon Police Chief Joanne Black presented Terrence with the agencys Warrior Medal. We believe you stand for everything that this does, Black said upon presenting him with the honor. Shortly afterward is when the 5-foot-11, 198pound safety attempted to address the crowd, but broke down. Thank you all for coming out, he said. My dream is getting every step closer. Cox, who has dated Terrence for the past two years, said through his final two seasons with the Seminoles, hes always remained low-key. Hes one of a kind, she said. Hes not cocky, hes confident. Theres a big difference between the two. Hes stayed so calm and level-headed throughout this whole process. God is the biggest part of his life. Cox said the whole process has been exciting to watch. He really handles himself well, said the Destin native, who graduated with a degree in international affairs and hospitality. Im there as his biggest supporter. Im just blessed to be a part of his life.

not accomplish their goals let alone obtain them if they do not learn to work together. Joan K. Duggins,DunnellonCracker Days an event well worth attendingKudos to whoever at Rainbow Springs State Park produces the Cracker Days weekend. I was so impressed Im not sure where to start. To begin with, a day of good family fun at $2 a pop at such a beautiful venue is a tremendous value for anyone. Also, the Florida Cracker theme is unique. I was born and raised here without ever knowing what one was. As a kid I was called a cracker. When I was called a cracker, it was not intended as a compliment and had nothing to do with herding cattle. As a teenager, I was on occasion referred to as a Florida Cracker by Yankees who were astounded that someone was actually from here. I had a vague idea that Crackers were Florida cowboys. I have known a few of those in my time and they were impressive men in their own right. Only Saturday at the park, when reading the description of a cracker by the great Florida author Patrick Smith, I realized that I have been a cracker all along. Next year, I will have a different outlook when I attend Cracker Days. These days $2 will buy about 12 ounces of gasoline, or about 13 minutes of the latest movie in the theater, or a day at Rainbow Springs State Park. I would recommend the park.Dwight Porter,DunnellonPastors musings very unchristian likePastor James Synder, I have found your past two columns to be very unchristian like. Twice, you have called someone stupid or dumb because their beliefs are different than yours. Are you stuck in second grade? Name calling is so offensive. Just because someone has different beliefs than you, it does not make them stupid, it makes them different. And you wonder why people are fed up with the Christians right. What happened to love one another? Disgraceful behavior from a man of God.Kathleen Wallace,DunnellonFamily Community Day draws large supportI want to thank all of you who attended Family Community Day on Feb. 26 at Bob Evans Restaurants for our Clothe the Children drive. It was very well attended and the Altar and Rosary Society of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church really appreciates it. The funds will be used to buy new clothing and distributed from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 7 to families in need in the community. God Bless you all. Judie Heesch,CoordinatorContributors made Cracker Days successThank you to all the musicians and storytellers, who helped us to make this years Cracker Day at Rainbow Springs State Park a success again. I keep bragging that I must have the best job in the park to be able to listen to all that great music. I made my rounds to try to meet you all on my breaks. Thank you again for sharing your talent and your time with us. I hope I can count on you again in 2015. Tom Ellis, the best sound man in Florida; The Shade Tree Pickers; James Tellier and Michael Coker, The James Brothers; Charles Hardwicke; Lee Kelly; Mary Young and her dulcimer players; The West Coast Blue Grass Boys and Girl; Glenn Smith & Linda Ellis Smith Too Many Smiths; Betty Breck, The Fiddler Lady; Bill Roberson, Suwannee Cracker; and Ed and Geraldine Berbaum, playing old time music. I hope we meet again next year.Rosemarie Kleuker,Dunnellon or bone marrow? I know in my heart I would do whatever it took. My brothers are two pieces of my life who I never want to be without. Growing up the three of us were always together or never far away. As long as I had them around I was never lonely or bored. Our childhood was magical. Exactly the way all kids should grow up. The houses were side by side and each was filled with numerous playmates. All you had to do was walk outside and suddenly you were surrounded by other kids. I guess we all grow up with a neighborhood full of Bill Cosby characters. Ive already talked about Ralphie, who was our version of Fat Albert. My older brother, Dominic, was definitely Bill Cosby himself, always the successful leader. My younger brother, Robert, was Russell, Bills younger brother. Russell had a penchant for making blunt observations much to his older brothers consternation to insult and antagonize the older kids. His catchphrase was no class, which I could very easily hear Bob saying. Our Dumb Donald was Debbie, our Bucky was Linda and ourMushmouth was Jimmy Bracchita, who had a habit of rubbing his lips when he talked. OleWeird Harold was David, who worshipped vampires and carried around a plastic string, which we jokingly called his wiggly worm. What a great childhood we had. Yes, if youre lucky, you make happy childhood memories and your siblings are your best friends. If you get a chance to watch this movie, please do so. Only make sure you have a big box of Kleenex nearby. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. P .S. Happy Birthday, Bob. Were so happy to be celebrating with you.

8 Riverland News, Thursday, Thursday, March 6, 2014 about gathering all of the information she could about Michelle-O-Gram and spoke with several members of the group. She was hooked the Michelle-O-Gram was sold on the idea, so much so that several members of the GRITS Girls paid for her first hog. She received myriads of donations to help offset the cost of raising her hog. All told, when she sold her first hog at the SEYF her junior year, shed raised more than $3,000 to help women secure muchneeded mammograms they would not be able to afford otherwise. She was so pleased with her efforts Frechette opted to do the same for her senior year. This year, her hog, Ginger, might not have sold for nearly the same amount, but the money earned from the sale is more than enough for approximately 18 to 20 women to receive mammograms. Its still a significant amount, Frechette said of the sale proceeds. Knowing that many women will benefit from (the funds) is amazing. To know that in some small way, Im helping someone else out, helping them when they need it its worth all of the effort and hard work. Perhaps the heartbreak, too. Frechette is well aware of where the hogs end up after the sale: the slaughterhouse. I cried so bad at the sale, she said, noting part of the sadness is because this was her final chance to be a part of the SEYF as a student. You know its a part of the cycle; you realize that its going to end up on someones table. Its bacon for boobies. The hard work was arriving at the school early in the morning to feed the animals as well as clean the stall and work with the hog in preparation for the event. In addition to that, participants are given a list of potential buyers. Each participant then must write a letter to those would-be buyers explaining why they should purchase their animal. Plus, there is the bookkeeping which is a necessity to show how much was spent on feed and other supplies to raise the animal. You really have to be organized, Frechette explained. Elaine Blauser Hobbs, a member of both GRITS and the Michelle-O-Gram, praised the efforts of Frechette the past two years. I love it, I absolutely love it, said Hobbs, whose sister, Michelle Blauser Standridge, died almost five years ago from breast cancer. It just goes to show you the impact of what Michelle went through and what were trying to through the Michelle-O-Gram. It really shows how unselfish she is, because thats a lot of money shes personally giving up. Frechette does have one concern as she looks toward the future: who will pick up where she left off? Im really trying to find someone who would be willing to do this, she said. Because it is a lot of hard work, it takes a lot of effort and you really have to be selfless to give up the money you make from the sale. However, if her future plans pan out, she might not have to do that much persuading. Frechette plans to become an agriculture teacher and work with FFA students. I really have a passion for FFA and I want to share that with the next generation, she said. I think the experiences and skills you learn from being a part of it all is something everyone should be a part of.

The Southwest Florida Water Management District (District) will treat the invasive aquatic plant hydrilla from March 10 to 13 on the Rainbow River in Marion County. District workers will treat scattered infestations on the river from Rainbow River State Park to the Withlacoochee River. Workers will apply the aquatic herbicide Aquathol Super K and post informational signs in the treated areas noting treatment dates and applicable water use restrictions. There are no restrictions on the use of treated water for swimming, fishing, boating or irrigating established turf, ornamental plants and crops. Treated river water should not be used for drinking or irrigating annual nursery or green house crops including hydroponics and newly seeded or transplanted annual crops, newly seeded or transplanted ornamentals, and newly sodded or seeded turf for seven days following treatment. Water use restrictions do not apply to well or tap water. Hydrilla is a troublesome aquatic plant from Southeast Asia, which escaped into Florida waters during the late 1950s. It is a fast-growing plant that expands quickly. If it is not controlled, native plant populations, recreational activities, navigation, flood control and fish and wildlife habitat can be negatively impacted. The management of hydrilla on the Rainbow River is a cooperative effort between the District, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. For information, call the district at 352-796-7211 or 800-423-1476.

Parents without computer access may complete a survey at their childs school or at the Title I Office located at 306 NW 7 Ave. in Ocala. Surveys are also available on the Parent Portal website.

The three-day event, which involved two days of rigorous judging, culminated in an awards ceremony Friday evening at Marion Technical Institute in Ocala. All five DMS students placed in their categories. Eighth-grader Carlos Gonzalez placed first in the Junior Chemistry category and was selected to present his project at the Orlando Science Challenge and the Broadcom Masters Competition. In addition, he will represent DMS at the Florida State Science Fair. His projectAlternative to Chlorine as a Disinfectant for Water involved research into substances that might be considered safer and more environmentally desirable substitutes for the widespread use of chlorine. The results of his research could have farreaching implications in consumer and industrial applications.It was a great experience and a lot of fun, Gonzalez said, noting he also was impressed by the number of students at the competition and the variety and depth of their projects.

encourages students to try hard in science in order to attend the science fair, adding, Its fun to have other peoples opinions of your work. Emily Newsom, also an eighth-grade student, made a return appearance this year having placed second in her division at last years event. This year, she captured first place in the Junior Physics division with her project, How Does a Tesla Coil Make Sound Resembling a Speaker? Based on the work of Nikola Tesla, an inventor, engineer, physicist and contemporary of Thomas Edison, Newsoms research explored the use of the Tesla Coil in sound transmission. Newsom said she started out with an idea for her project and ended up going in a completely different direction. I would like to expand on my research for future science fair entries and try to prove more of Teslas theories, she said. Christen Adams, a sixth-grader, placed third in the Junior Engineering category with her entry titled, Boats, Ships and Waves, Oh My! Based on the use of bilge keels to reduce the rocking motion of boats and ships, her research confirmed the necessity of such devices. She was able to replicate the effects of waves on watercraft on a much smaller scale by using two-liter soda bottles in a backyard swimming pool. She said being interviewed by the judges and having to answer their many questions was a new experience. Adams also noted it was worth all the hard work and she would definitely like to compete in future science fairs. It was a lot of fun, plus it will look good on my college applications, she explained. Alianna LaCombe, also a sixth-grader, won fourth-place honors in the Junior Physics category and the Ocala Pediatrics Special Award of $100.Her project, titled, What Sunglass Lens Blocks the Most Amount of Ultraviolet Radiation, compared different types of lens coatings in order to determine the one with the highest degree of UV protection.LaCombe felt the experience of preparing for and participating in the science fair was, an awesome opportunity for the future. She added taking part in the event made the learning process fun, she enjoyed learning more about her subject, and doing so helped raise her grade in science class.
