  • Dunnellon Police say thanks to community

    I would like to thank everyone who participated in our DUI Checkpoint on Saturday Dec, 18. Thanks to CJ’s Transmissions and Gruff’s Tap and Grill for providing the use of their parking lots during this event.

    Our department was able to check 630 vehicles issuing 24 citations, two criminal misdemeanor citations and 13 written warnings.

    This checkpoint would not have been possible without the assistance of IDEAVS (Impaired Driving Education and Victim Services), which provided food and drinks to our officers.

  • Kiwanis Club thanks for ‘Holiday Magic Tour of Homes’

    Incredibly dynamic are the only words I know to describe the support of our recent “Holiday Magic Tour of Homes.”

    A special thank you to the residents that welcomed us into their beautiful homes,

    which made this event possible.

    We also extend thanks to Rainbow Springs Country Club, Belk Department store, and Jenifer’s Hair Studio and the many volunteers including musicians, models and all participants who supported our program.

  • Sorority delivers packages for ‘We Care’

    The Ladies of Xi Nu Delta local chapter of Beta Sigma Phi recently delivered “We Care” packages for the homeless to the Annie Johnson Rehab store in Dunnellon. A Thanksgiving basket filled with holiday foods was delivered to a young family of four in Citrus County by Lorraine Ricca and Barbara O’Donnell, service chairwomen of the Chapter.

  • The true meaning of Christmas

    In the true meaning of the holidays, myself, Tonya DeRose, a stay-at home mother of two, has made it my personal mission to help out Noah’s Christian Academy, a local day care.
    In the past several years, Mrs. Linda Barber, the director of the school, and her husband, Pastor Barber, have helped many families in need, even purchasing diapers and wipes out of their own pockets.

  • Property Owners of Rainbow Springs

    All property owners in the Villages of Rainbow Springs should be receiving an election packet in the mail any day now from the Rainbow Springs POA Board of Directors. The upcoming election will be held at the Annual Meeting on Jan. 19, 2011.
    We feel there are many problems with the way the current Board of Directors conducts the election and many other issues that need to be addressed, financial issues, security issues, are a few of them.

  • Woods a perfect selection as grand marshal

    Sure, it would have been great to have Chaplin Dinkins leading this year’s annual Dunnellon Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade. However, his untimely passing left a sizable void.
    But Charlene Williams needed only 30 seconds to realize what a gem Regas Woods is for the community.
    And we couldn’t agree more.
    Woods, a lifelong Dunnellon resident and Dunnellon High School graduate, is an individual filled with a “can-do” spirit.

  • It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas

    With December at the midway point, the Christmas countdown clock is at nine days and ticking, it certainly is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
    It certainly feels that way too. Cold, overcast and downright dreadful.
    Yuck. Bah-humbug.
    There’s really nothing I enjoy about cold weather. The joints ache and the pain is unbearable, so much that instead of feeling like the 36-year-old that I am I feel 72.
    Certainly, it’s not Florida is it? I’m not in Kansas anymore.
