An agreement with the state
and private landowners could
enable the city to development a
future recreation complex.
It would also enable the state
to recover the Little League
property
Dunnellon is moving toward
an agreement with the state to
take over Bridges Road. In re-
turn the city would get some
state land via long-term lease,


from the old Florida Barge
Canal right-of-way
The site is more than 100
acres with Rainbow River ac-
cess next to Rio Vista. It could
become the future home for the
Dunnellon Little league com-
plex and provide facilities for
other sports and possible trail
access.
The arrangement was ex-
plained at the April 29 City
Council workshop.
City Manager Lisa Algiere said


the state wants to build a trail-
head by the ball fields and the
city would take Bridges Road.
And over time, the state would
get the Little League property
back. The property is currently
home to the multi-field baseball
and softball complex with park-
ing and support buildings.
She said the city would close
Bridges Road. Traffic will use
St. Patrick's to access the ball
fields. This will eliminate the
dangerous intersection of

Police Chief Joanne
Black got her "sea of gray
T-shirts."
As organizer of the first
Dunnellon Law Enforce-
ment Special Olympics
Torch Run, Black had been
confident all along that the
community would put on a
successful event and prob-
ably ellipse its bigger
neighbors.
The gray T-shirts that
participants wore were the
main fundraising element
for the event and Black's
plan was to have not only
the runners wearing them,
but also business owners
and people along the
route.
And that certainly hap-
pened.
Funds from shirt sales
and donations support the
Special Olympics at Walt
Disney World this month.
Black had announced
that Dunnellon would host
the torch run back at the
Chamber of Commerce
awards dinner in January
and the momentum just
kept building.
Then on the morning of
Wednesday, April 28 more
than 160 people signed up
to participate. After the

Suspected gang busted in Citrus Springs


SHEMIRWILES
Special to Riverland News
Citrus County Sheriff's
Office deputies arrested
several suspected gang
members connected to
numerous car burglaries
in the Citrus Springs area
Wednesday night, April
28.
According to a press re-
lease, patrol deputies,
along with members of
the CCSO's Tactical Im-
pact Unit, had been
closely watching a home-


grown gang known as
Past the Fountain, or
PTF (a reference to the
entryway of the north-
eastern community), as
possible suspects in the
break-ins.
This week, the Citrus
Springs community re-
source officer received
an e-mail with a link to a
gang rap video that
threatened violence
against any officer for al-
leged harassment.
PTF associates admit-
ted to "lifting" around


200 to 250 car door han-
dles in the community
since January, the re-
lease stated. Commonly
known as car hopping,
this crime involves bur-
glars lifting door handles
to find open vehicles and
ultimately stealing any
items of value from in-
side.
According to officials,
the PTF associates took
everything they could
grab, including cash,
firearms, laptop comput-
ers, purses, credit cards,


digital cameras and as-
sorted small electronics.
Then they would sell or
trade the stolen items, a
practice that provided
them with living ex-
penses, the press release
stated.
More than 30 vehicles
were reported broken
into, officials said, and in
every instance, the vehi-
cles were left unsecured
with valuables in plain
sight.
The sheriff's office en-
courages Citrus Springs


residents to keep their
vehicles locked at all
times. More importantly,
people should also re-
move purses, wallets and
other valuables from
their vehicle and take
them inside.

1980.


Spring river cleanup May 15


The Rainbow River
community cleanup will
be held on Saturday, May
15 at 9 a.m. starting at the
Rio Vista Beach Park,
north of Dunnellon.
Volunteers are needed
to help with this cleanup

All the debris that is col-
lected will be brought
back to the Rio Vista Park
at 12 noon for record
keeping and disposal.
Participants are invited to

tato salad, and baked
beans.
Prizes will be awarded

trash collected by an indi-
vidual, the largest indi-
vidual item of trash
recovered from the river

Rainbow's End Golf Club
has new owners.
Don and Linda DeLaney
of Morriston recently pur-
chased the nine-hole golf
course just north of Dun-
nellon.
With its secluded loca-
tion on the edge of the Vil-
lage of Rainbow Springs
and proximity to the Rain-
bow Springs Golf and Coun-
try Club, Rainbow's End
has kept a low public pro-
file.
That's a direction the De-
Laneys are going to change
as they plan to get the word
out that Rainbow's End is
open to the golfing public
and all area golfers are
welcome.
"We're semiprivate, but
we're open to the public,"
said Linda DeLaney. "We
have memberships, but
everyone is welcome."
The course is open every-
day With no tee times, any-
one who wants to play can
just show up.
Golfers can walk the
course or rent a cart and
Rainbow's End has a driv-
ing range. And unlike many
other courses, golfers can
walk the course even
play 18 holes anytime of
the day
"If you get here before 6
p.m. you can walk," said
Don. If you would like to
rent a cart, show up before
4 p.m. to play 18 holes or by
6 p.m. to play nine holes.
The course is a par 36
with two par 5's and two
par 3's. And the elevation
changes up to 50 feet -
may surprise some golfers
who haven't played there

1 -I^A.


yet. The scenic course cov-
ers nearly 70 acres.
Young golfers, beginners
and occasional players are
always welcome and any-
one can arrange to take les-
sons, have golf clubs
repaired or take care of
their other golf equipment
needs.
The clubhouse has gotten
considerable attention
since DeLaneys took over
and now offers beer, wine,
soft drinks and snacks.
Food service with a light
menu is being planned.
They have also added new
landscaping and outdoor
tables and chairs.
"We've both been in the
golf business all our lives,
mostly on the outside," said
Don DeLaney in response
to why they would buy a
golf course.


They have taken a
"hands-on" approach to
running Rainbow's End
and creating a welcoming
environment.
Don is a former presi-
dent of the Florida Golf
Course Superintendents
Association and admits that
some aspects of operating
their own course and club-
house are a new experi-
ence.
They plan on using their
expertise to groom the
course outside while im-
proving and updating its fa-
cilities.
Rainbow's End Golf
Course is located at 20650
Southwest 80th Place Road,
just west of U.S. Highway
41. Watch for the sign just
south of the intersection
with Highway 40. For more
information call 489-4566.

April 13 to 18 accompanied
by their teachers, Janice
Latham-Smith and John
Quinones.
After months of fundrais-
ing and the generosity of
many sponsors, the stu-
dents flew to Washington
and spent six days visiting
our nation's most signifi-
cant monuments, memori-
als and branches of
American government.
In addition, they enjoyed
an audience with our
newest member of the
United States Supreme
Court, Associate Justice
Sonia Sotomayor. So-
tomayor was President
Barack Obama's nominee
to the court in April 2009,
approved just in time for
the Court's session that
began in October 2009.
DHS students inter-
viewed her, ironically, on
April 15 Tax Day in
addition to enjoying a pri-
vate tour of the Supreme
Court with one of its cura-
tors.
On the same day they
also visited our nation's
Capitol with special access
to various locations
granted by Rep. Ginny
Brown-Waite's office. They
gained a unique opportu-
nity to see our elected rep-
resentatives at work -
from congressional offices
to underground passages
and even viewing a con-
gressional debate from the

front of Walmart, Black lit
the torch and the run was
on.
About 30 special athlet-
ics participated including
the Challenger baseball
team the Braves and stu-
dents from Dunnellon
High School. Those athlet-
ics and police officers
shared the torch carrying
honors at the head of the
run.
Among the panting
crowd were Mayor Fred
Ward, council members
Fred Stark and Dennis
Evans, city manager Lisa
Algiere and chamber of
commerce director Bev-
erly Leisure.
Residents of all ages
came out to participate
and spectators formed im-
promptu cheering squads.
The Boys and Girls Club
bus followed runners for
anyone needing a lift and
city fire trucks brought up
the rear.
Appropriately, it may
have been the first weather
perfect day of the spring.
The run took one
halfway break for everyone
to catch up and catch their
breath. Once it concluded
behind City Hall, there was
a flag program by the
American Legion and the
torch was passed on to Cit-
rus County.
The crowd enjoyed re-
freshments, the special
athletics had lunch, gifts
and a boat ride and Black
began planning next year's
event.
She said the effort raised
more than $3,500 for the
Special Olympics. Next
year the chief plans to in-
clude a 5K run along with
a repeat of the walk.

According to arrest re-
ports, Blomquist was re-
leased to his parents and

Of course the students

students. For some, like
Angel, a junior and recent
immigrant from Puerto
Rico, although deeply im-
pacted by the Holocaust ex-
hibitions, Lincoln
Memorial and baseball
game, he added "It was a
special pride for me from
Puerto Rico to meet Ms. So-
tomayor."
Angel, like Krystle, a sen-
ior, was impressed by the
architecture of the
Supreme Court. Other than
meeting Sotomayor, Jes-
sica, a senior from


Guatemala, was impressed
by the Holocaust museum
and the realistic look of the
animals at the Museum of
Natural History. Maria Is-
abel, a senior from Mexico,
was overjoyed with the the-
ater production because
"they interacted with us in
the audience ...I never ex-
perienced something like
that before."
For these 10 students,
this trip was something
they will hardly forget as
they experienced the won-
ders of our nation's capital
like never before.

Dunnellon had two great events


hundreds of Dunnellon
area residents were in-
volved in two incredible
events last week.
On Wednesday, April 28 the city
held its first Dunnellon Law En-
forcement Special Olympics Torch
Run. It was a memorable occasion.
With fantastic weather and
tremendous enthusiasm about 150
runners, walkers and mobile spec-
tators followed the torch down
Hwy. 41 from Walmart to City Hall.
Teams of law officers and special
athletics kept the torch held high
as the T-shirt clad crowd with
participants of a variety of ages -
kept up a good pace from the start


LETTERS

Great evening
at new venue
There's a wonderful new venue in
town! On April 29, Amarie's Banquet
and Catering hosted an enthusiastic
crowd for a nice dinner followed by a
wonderful selection of 1940s music
performed by nine Ocala Civic players
who have excellent voices. The musi-
cal pieces ran from "Wunderbar" to
"Wunderbar" with many Golden Oldies
in between.
I can't praise the singers too much
for the quality of their performance.
The pianist was so good that he could
play a two-handed accompaniment,
turn the pages and sing a hot number
- all at the same time.
Thank you, thank you Amarie's and
Ocala Civic for a wonderful evening!

Thanks for
love and support
I would like to say a very special
"Thank You" to our community for the
love and support shown to us during
our first ever Law Enforcement Torch
Run to benefit Special Olympics held
on Wednesday April 28.
This event is very dear to our hearts
and the outpouring of support from
citizens, business owners, city employ-
ees, fellow law enforcement agencies,
newspapers, and surrounding commu-
nities was overwhelming. Everyone
pulled together to benefit this very
worthy cause.
With 164 registrants participating,
including 31 special athletes, the
run/walk from Walmart to City Hall
Boat Ramp was quite the sight to see.
The cheer squads lining Williams
Street encouraged the participants to
keep going and brought smiles to lots
of shining faces. I would like to take
this opportunity to thank the following
sponsors, in no particular order, for
making this event possible and such a
success: first and foremost, Special
Olympics Committee, for allowing us
to bring this event to our small city in-
stead of partnering with a larger
agency, Walmart, Checkers, SunTrust
Bank, Aarons, Ace Hardware, Regions
Bank, Superior Bank, Subway,
Pavarotti's Pizza, Pizza Hut, Boys and

to the halfway pause.
Then it was on to the scenic park
behind City Hall where the Amer-
ican Legion led the pledge and
presented the colors. And with
some upbeat speeches, the torch
was passed to Citrus County. The
crowd celebrated the special ath-
letics and special students who
participated.
It was a success as a fundraiser
and as a positive community event
as Dunnellon took its place among
many other city and counties that
help make Florida's Special
Olympics a reality. It was also the
kind of event that you will want be
part of next year.


Then came Saturday and Dun-
nellon's 2010 Relay for Life. This
emotional fundraiser and show of
support for the American Cancer
Society and local cancer survivors
has been a community tradition.
It has weathered the same tough
economy that has battered local
businesses, scared homeowners
and all types of employees and
cast a cloud of doubt over anything
involving discretionary spending.
Veteran Relay leaders knew it
was going to be tough.
Sure there was less money
raised than in previous years, but
it wasn't for lack of effort. And if
for anything the 2010 Relay will be


NATIONAL

DAY OF

PRAYERYR






Last the City Council passed a proclamation recognizing Thursday, May 6 as
the National Day of Prayer.There will be an all day Bible reading marathon from
9 to 6 p.m. At 6 p.m. there will be a formal prayer service led by community
leaders. The activities will take place at the gazebo in front of Dunnellon City
Hall.


OTHER VIEWS


Douse danger with arson awareness


Fire is fascinating, and for that rea-
son, children often play and experiment
with it. But one flick of a match or a
click of a lighter can have devastating
consequences, resulting in death, de-
struction of property, hefty fines and
even jail time. What's more: fire play
tends to heat up during the summer
when children get bored during their
break from school. Marion County Fire
Rescue seeks to prevent the pain and
hardship of loss to all Marion County
residents by observing nationally recog-
nized Arson Awareness Week from May
2 through 8.
According to the United States Fire
Administration, nationwide in 2008,
arson caused 315 deaths, 30,500 fires
and $866 million in property losses.
While the United States Fire Adminis-
tration announced the national theme of
Arson Awareness Week as Community
Arson Prevention, Marion firefighters
want to take this theme and personalize
it to the specific needs of Marion County
by educating citizens about juvenile fire
setting and what parents and family
members can do to prevent this form of
arson over the upcoming summer
months.
Marion County Fire Rescue's preven-
tion division has tracked arson locally
and found that from 1997 to 2008, Mar-
ion children have ignited 305 outside
fires and 116 structure fires. Working to


prevent juvenile arson, Fire Rescue
staff helped create the Marion County
Juvenile Fire Setters Intervention
Coalition to reduce child and juvenile
fire setting through improved intera-
gency cooperation, community aware-
ness and education. For more
information about arson prevention in
your community, please call Marion
County Fire Rescue headquarters at
291-8000.
As the summer months approach and
children are released from school, the
Marion County Juvenile Fire Setters In-
tervention Coalition recommends par-
ents or caregivers follow these life
saving tips to help prevent juvenile
arson:
Teach children fire is a tool, not a
toy
Keep matches and lighters out of
reach of children; even a 2-year-old can
operate a cigarette lighter.
Always supervise young children.
Set a good example; use matches
and lighters safely.
Do not ignore a child's interest in
fire
Maintain smoke detectors.
Practice exit drills monthly.
Never leave stoves or lit candles
unattended.
Teach children to tell adults about
any matches or lighters they find.

Dunnellon Historical Society at the train depot included, left to right, John Tay-
lor, Darlene Parker, Frank Strobl, Buck Baxter, Joey Weisbaum, Brad Nimmo,
Carolyn Cairns and Gary Hautau


remembered as the year of the
high school teams.
Those students turned out, ener-
gized the event, had fun, honored
the cancer survivors and hopefully
grasped the gravity of this disease
and started what could be a posi-
tive trend in growing student in-
volvement.
There was also awesome enter-
tainment and some really fine
food.
Looking back they were two
great events, two successful
events. Anyone who was part of ei-
ther one has something to be
proud of.

TIME TO SMILE



Moms are



special


Sunday, May 9

is Mothers'Day
A face without freckles is like a
night without stars! At least that
is what it says on the plaque in
my kitchen that my mom gave me.
Don't you love moms? They always
know how to make you feel good.
Having a mom is like having your
leader. Where would
we be without them?
Really, who else would
make you feel good
about having a face
full of freckles? Leave
it to good ole mom.
Moms have amazing
talents. They can get
Kathleen the straw in the juice
Wallace box every time. For
me, this process usu-
ally involves a knife and a juice stain
on my shirt. I can't get that darn straw
in no matter how hard I try Moms
know how to fold a fitted sheet into a
nice neat square, unlike the rumpled
ball on the shelf in my linen closet.
Moms carry medicine cabinets in their
purses. If they don't have a band-aid
they are always at the ready with a kiss
to make it all better.
I don't know how they do it but moms
are always wise. They know every-
thing. Listen to your mom. She is al-
ways right. I was told they have eyes in
the back of their heads. I haven't been
able to verify this but I believe it to be
true. They always know what you are
up too. You can bet your mom is a
member of the secret mom network. As
long as she pays her dues she'll have
moms looking after you no matter
where you are.
Moms have big hearts. No, make that
huge hearts. They forgive you when
you cut up their good sheet set to use
for a craft project. They get over the
vase you broke when you were playing
ball in the house even though you
were told a thousand times not to.
Moms take in stray cats, dogs, and
friends. They have enough love to go
around.
Moms are the best. They make good
listeners. You can always talk to a
mom. You hate to admit it but their ad-
vice is always on the money
They give good directions too. They
know the way home it is where their
heart is. The only annoying part is
when they tell you how to drive.
Helping with homework is also a
mom specialty, unless it is the "new
math." Then you are on your own.
They know how to make good science
projects or Halloween costumes.
Sometimes they are one and the same.
You can't forget the taxi service.
Moms really missed their calling.
They could have raced any New
York City cabbie and beat them with
their eyes closed and a cell phone in
their ear!
They have the patience of a saint.
Technically it is required to deal with
teenagers. In fact their canonization
usually begins when the child is in his
or her 30s and walking in their mom's
shoes.
Yep, moms are great. I know because
I have the "bestest" mom in the whole
wide world. I hope you take some time
to remember your mom on Mother's
Day. They deserve all the credit they
can get. There is nothing better than a
mom. All right, dad is a close second
but we talk about him next month.
Happy Mother's Day!

Clinton and
Tea Party
The other day I read
where former President
Bill Clinton was attempt-
ing to draw a comparison
between Timothy
McVeigh, the Oklahoma
City bomber, and the cur-
rent Tea Party folks. He
did not go far enough.
When McVeigh's anger
was building, Clinton was
President and the De-
mocrats controlled both
houses of government.
When the Tea Party's
anger was building there
was a Democrat in the
White House and the De-
mocrats controlled both
houses.
Richard P Mack
Dunnellon
Surpluses left
to Bush letter
I would like to com-
ment on several of the is-
sues massaged in the
April 22 letter. First, the
data from the Congres-


Candler Hillsk
DRestaurant


Ser


sional Budget Office
shows that Clinton ran
budget surpluses from
1998 to 2001, and Bush
from his first year in of-
fice ran deficits every
year of his presidency
Some sources attribute
the Clinton budget sur-
pluses to the federal bor-
rowing in Clinton's case
money was borrowed
from the Social Security
fund. The fact is that
Bush borrowed Social Se-
curity funds for the same
purpose. In 2004, Bush
borrowed $150 billion in
Social Security funds to
make his record $415 bil-
lion dollar deficit look
smaller.
The question was
posed as to how Bush
took a surplus left by
Clinton and turned it into
a deficit so easily The an-
swer for the first year of
the Bush presidency is
easy. Bush, embracing
the failed "voodoo eco-
nomics" of the Reagan
era (the term coined by
his father G. H. Bush dur-
ing his run for the 1980
Republican presidential


nomination), dished up
over $1 trillion dollars in
tax cuts. The economy
never recovered suffi-
ciently to cover this
deficit, and it remains
embedded in the Obama
budget deficit. The addi-
tional Bush tax cuts in
2003 and the cost of the
Afghanistan and Iraq
Wars further deepened
the budget deficit and
these too remain embed-
ded in our current budget
shortfall.
The 2001 recession,
which lasted a mere eight
months, was limited in its
impact on federal budget
deficits. The recession
was caused by the unsus-
tainable peaking of tech-
nology stocks in the 1990s
and the bursting of the
dot.com bubble when
post-Y2K computer or-
ders declined, causing a
significant reduction in
the value of dot.com com-
panies. As the recession
was just about bottoming
out, the 9/11 attacks
wrought additional and
much more significant
economic losses.
The issue of why Con-


gress supported these
budget deficits is a little
more complex. A prime
mission of Congressional
representatives is to
bring monetary and eco-
nomic benefit to their
constituencies. It is cer-
tainly in our best inter-
ests in the November
elections to investigate
why our incumbent rep-
resentatives voted the
way they did on fiscal
matters and look for al-
ternatives if needed.
As a final comment, it
is interesting to note that
Obama's budget, unlike
the Bush budgets, fully
accounts for such items
as the costs of the
Afghanistan and Iraq
wars (Bush used emer-
gency funding), all
Medicare costs, and costs
for natural disaster relief
- an openness adding, by
some accounts, over $2
trillion dollars to the
budget deficit. Obama's
ambitious pursuit of his
polices like health care
reform certainly adds to
the current deficit, but it
is clear that the actions of


administrations and con-
gresses are still having a
significant impact on our
budget deficits.

The Power Outage
When the power went
off
It just was not fair!
I was left high and dry
With my feet in the air!
When this happened

Just how did I fare?
Well, I couldn't get out
Of my powerless chair!
I depend on my lift-
chair
Day-in and day-out
And when the power

It loses its clout!

Had no favorite TV

We've got so many of them,
our only option is to let new

Jenkins Acura Auto USA

Right now, you can get a used
car or truck, many less than a

without a penny out of your
pocket. This is a program I

made against them are being
brought back at a staggering
rate. The bank nor dealership

tax, tag and title. And I've
got fifty other cars and trucks
that are similar values,"
added Dillon. Dealerships
and banks aren't in the busi-
ness of taking back vehicles
when customers can't make
payments. They'd rather get
them off their books immedi-
ately and will do whatever is
necessary to do so.
Jenkins Auto USA has tak-
en all of the vehicles and put


them in a special section on
their lot. Any interested con-
sumers who'd like to view
the inventory should call the
dealership to make an ap-
pointment.
"All we're asking is to make
an appointment. We've got
these vehicles sectioned off
and they're ready to be driv-
en, inspected and taken home
today. We're clearly posting
prices and payments. If you
see a vehicle you like, but
aren't happy about the take
over price simply make an
offer. I'm sure you hear sto-
ries every day of banks and
businesses taking pennies on
the dollar for surplus prod-
ucts. I don't see why any of-
fer will be refused," finished
Dillon.
Jenkins Acura Auto USA
has been one of Ocala's top
dealerships for many years.
Respected by the com-
munity, the dealership has
built its business on fantas-
tic products, great customer
service and prices that you
can feel good about. Inter-
ested consumers should call
the dealership at 1-800-603-
1064. This event is going on
through 8:00pm
Monday.
"After that, we've got to
ship inventory off this lot.
We can't let it sit here for-
ever for the banks or lenders.
Make an offer now, or you
may miss an opportunity to
get a great car under $200 per
month," added Dillon.

DES hears musician Anna Moo End of Course Exams at DMS


On April 16 the Grammy-
nominated musician, Anna
Moo, treated DES to three
concerts. She appeared in
our media center, giving
concerts for each grade
kindergarten, first and sec-
ond. Then in the afternoon,
she presented a special
concert for those who pur-
chased a ticket using 10
CUB Cash.
She led the students on a
musical journey singing
"Row, Row, Row Your Boat"
with the children joining
hands and doing the "row-
ing". It got pretty exciting
near the end of the song
when Ms. Moo spotted a
shark coming towards their
boat. There was much
laughter and giggling as the
children had to speed up
their rowing and go as fast
as possible to get away
from that shark!
She did a song where she
taught the children phrases
in Spanish, Japanese, Ger-
man, French, dog, cat, and
horse to name a few. She
did a couple of beautiful
ballads about friendship.
In the afternoon concert
she let some children come
up and sing. She talked
about stage fright and hav-
ing confidence in yourself.
The children and staff all
enjoyed themselves im-
mensely
It's the time of year when
our students start taking
their field trips. This week


the second graders went to
the Santa Fe Zoo. They
were spotted as they ar-
rived back on campus in
the afternoon, looking
rather tired, but happy
Several children were car-
rying peacock feathers!
They saw all kinds of ani-
mals including parrots, an
owl and a baby jaguar. The
children enjoyed eating
their lunch at the zoo.
Then Wednesday the 1st
graders participated in the
second part of the Black
Stallion Literacy Project
sponsored by the Junior
League of Ocala. They went
to the Ocala Breeders Com-
pound and saw how to take
care of a horse. Upon re-
turning to school each stu-
dent received their second
of the Little Black books.
Right before spring
break our 4th graders went
to see the movie, "Diary of
a Wimpy Kid". The series of
Diary books has been the
rage here at DES. So the
students were excited to
get to see the movie. (And
eat the popcorn with their
drinks!)
Also, the last day of
school before spring break
we had a dance for the 3rd
- 5th graders. Admission
was a canned good and a
dollar. The food was do-
nated to the backpacks for
Kids program. About 150
students attended the
dance held in the cafeteria.


IENWED MAEY URFCOCRETELOSOD


The $350 raised in admis-
sions and refreshment
sales is going to help offset
the cost of the trip to Talla-
hassee for the safety pa-
trols and 4-H club
members. The kids had a
good time socializing after
school. There was even
some dancing going on! (I
also spotted some staff
doing the Macarena!)
Sunshine Updates: New
additions to the Sunshine
Wall of Fame are Jilliam
Capps, Mason Sereda, and

ulations! Our Sunshine

YOUR DENTAL
HEALTH









byM.EHampton,D.D.S.
OUT OF THE
ROTATION
There are instances in
which a permanent tooth will
be rotated on its axis so that
it isn't aligned properly with
either adjacent or opposing
teeth. As a result of its
twisted orientation, the
rotated tooth creates a space
on both of its sides where it
should otherwise stand
shoulder-to-shoulder with
the teeth next to it. In cases
where the rotation is not too
extreme, the dentist can
augment the rotated tooth
with color-matching bonding
material. This composite
restoration is undertaken in
an incremental manner to
slowly fill in gaps and build
up the tooth in areas where it
is needed. All the while, care
must be taken to ensure
correct tooth dimension and
attain the desired aesthetic
result.
Rotating teeth, teeth that
are twisted and facing
sideways, can not only ruin
your smile but also
complicate chewing. Ask us
at the office of MARK E.
HAMPTON, DJDS. about
procedures that can
reposition your tooth into a
straight smile. We can
perform many procedures to
enhance your smile, your
self-esteem, and your
personal success. We invite
you to call 352-489-5071 to
schedule an appointment for
experienced and compre-
hensive dentistry. We're
located at 11902 Illinois
Street, where we provide the
very best care with state-of-
the-art technology. If you
don't have a dentist at this
time, we're currently
accepting new patients.
We're "Dedicated to
Excellent Dentistry."
P.S. Teeth can be altered
so that they appear larger or
smaller than they actually
are.

Veteran anglers win Bass Challenge


DAN HERMES
Special to Riverland News
Flipping heavy cover and
stump fields, along with
getting the right bites, paid
off handsomely for tourna-
ment anglers Caleb Frazier
and Calvin Homrne. The duo
won the sixth annual Citrus
County Bass Challenge
(CCBC) on Saturday, netting
the pair a first-place check
of $4,750, which included
big-bass honors.
About 80 two-man teams
competed for more than
$13,000 in prize money,
along with making a dona-


tion to the Key Training
Center.
"We've been fishing to-
gether for 15 years," a visi-
bly excited Homrne said. "We
got on the fish all day and
got the right bites."
Frazier, who hails from
Inglis, said his partner was
"going to pay his way
through college" if the pair
ended up on top. Hornet can
thank Frazier for getting
his higher-education fund
started by putting the
kicker into the live-well.
"We caught them on
worms fiddlin' around the
stumps," Frazier said. That


fiddlin' paid off when Fra-
zier caught the anchor fish,
an impressive 10.02-pound
largemouth, en route to a
five fish bag weighing in
25.22 pounds.
Coming in second with a
five-fish bag weighing 21.68
pounds was the two-man
team of Billy Bowen and
Tony Davis, who netted a
respectable pay-off of
$1,760. The third-place
prize of $1,200 went to the
father-and-son team of Bob
and Chris Heron, who
weighed in 21.62 pounds in
their five-fish bag.
"We ended up six ounces


out of second, and it's been
that way all year long" said
Chris Heron, who hails
from Gainesville and fishes
the Extreme circuit with
partner Chris Keith. "We've
been second or third every
time. We just can't get that
kicker."
Rounding out the top five
were Mike Faison and
Robert Music, who
weighed-in a five-fish bag
of 18.86 pounds and Carl
Adams and Dave Cutler,
who brought in five fish
weighing 18.64 pounds.
"Overall, the fishing was
great this year," CCBC

paper prompted a dean to
label him "the most de-
structive force on campus."
Since 1998 he has reported
on environmental issues
for Florida's largest news-
paper, the St. Petersburg
Times. His work won the
Waldo Proffitt Award for
Distinguished Environ-
mental Journalism in
Florida in 2004, for reveal-
ing a secret plan by the
state's business leaders to


transfer water from sleepy
North Florida to booming
South Florida. The stories
caused such an uproar that
Gov. Jeb Bush scuttled the
plan.
Pittman is working on a

for publication this month.

Tournament Director Matt
Beck said. "Most of the
teams that came to the
stage had five-fish limits
and that's a sure sign of a
healthy fishery Once again,
Lake Rousseau lived up to
its reputation as being one
of the great bass fishing
lakes in Florida. Any body


of water that can consis-
tently produce giant bags of
fish like this body of water
does week-in and week-out
certainly deserves that rep-
utation."
The annual fundraiser
event for the Key Training
Center could not happen
without the volunteers who
helped out, Key Training

tions Manager Iris Whit-
taker explained.

Both the Dunnellon High School baseball team and the softball team were
scheduled to in playoff action on Tuesday, May 4 at the home fields. Above, a
Tiger dives back to first base in a previous home win. Below, a Belleview run-
ners gets on base during the first inning of last Friday's game. See www.river-
landnews.com for updates.


LARRY BUGG
News Correspondent
The Dunnellon High soft-
ball team knows the heat is
on.
The Tigers are the de-
fending Class 4A state
champion and are just a
few victories away from re-
peating.
Last Friday, Dunnellon
beat a team from the Mar-
ion County neighborhood
in the regional semifinal at
Dunnellon High's field.
Dunnellon (27-1) beat
Belleview 10-0 in five in-
nings for the fourth time
this season.
Now, the Tigers face a
worthy opponent from
down south.
Dunnellon hosted New
Port Richey Mitchell Tues-
day at 7 p.m. in the Class
4A, regional final. The win-
ner goes on to state. Visit
www.riverlandnews.com
for updates.
The April 30 game looked
like it might be victim of
wet weather, but the sky


cleared just in time.
Though the baseball game
at Vanguard was delayed a
day due to rain with the
Tigers trailing Lake Weir 5-
0.
But the team roared back
Saturday 6-5 and the Tigers
took their second straight
district title. They faced St.
Cloud in the regional semi-
finals on Tuesday, May 4.
According to athletic di-
rector Frank Beasley that
meant both baseball and
softball had playoff games
at Dunnellon High School
at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 4.
In softball, Belleview
surprised the home crowd
April 30 when its first two
batters hit safely
Despite a minor case of
coughing, Kasey Fagan was
the winning pitcher. She al-
lowed three hits and struck
out eight.
Caylee Underwood was
2-for-2 with a double. Sami
Fagan was 2-for-3 with two
runs.
Sami Fagan's hitting
streak is now 61 straight


games.
Dunnellon made no er-
rors, a remarkable feat in
and of itself.
The Tigers put on a
strong performance, the
kind they need to march on
to a state title.
"We were pretty sharp,"
said coach Kevin Fagan.
"We played good defense
and hit. In all aspects of the
game, we were pretty
good."
Fagan thinks his girls
have the intensity and
focus needed to keep on
winning.
"I think we are a little
more focused," the coach
said. "We are taking one
game at a time. We are not
looking ahead. I think
Mitchell is 24-3."
Everyone is healthy.
If the softball team beat
Mitchell Tuesday, they may
be playing the winner of
Pembrook Pines and Okee-
chobee in the Final Four at
the Dot Richardson Com-
plex in Clermont.
