City could offer broadband access


PAT FAHERTY
Editor
Dunnellon will consider
plans to provide a high speed
communications network as a
city service.
Public hearings have been
scheduled on establishing a
communications utility that
would provide affordable
broadband access to homes
and businesses in the Dunnel-
lon area.
It would use a fiber optic net-


work.
According to


the Federal


Communications Commission,
the term "broadband" com-
monly refers to high-speed In-
ternet access that can provide
the communications capability
for a variety of simultaneous
services including voice, video
and data.
The FCC defines fiber optic
as a newer technology that con-
verts electrical signals carry-
ing data to light and sends the
light through transparent glass
fibers about the diameter of a
human hair. It transmits data
much faster than cable modem,
DSL, wireless or satellite.


The fiber optics are tradi-
tionally combined into cables
and installed underground
from the service provider all
the way to the customer's home
or business.
It is commonly referred to as
Fiber To The Home, or FTTH
technology
City Manager Lisa Algiere
rolled out the idea at the May 5
workshop as a new source of
revenue that would be "green,"
improve quality of life and
boost economic development.
"Consumers are very hungry
for faster and more reliable In-


ternet speeds," said Algiere.
"Fiber is the way to get that. If
we had fiber to the home we
could offer all the features you
would find in the big markets."
Residents would have much
faster basic Internet service. A
fee of about $35 a month was
put out for discussion purposes
with costs increasing for dif-
ferent levels of services.
She said that with fiber you
can connect from home or
business straight to the police
department or a fire alarm -
all the features you would nor-
mally get in a security system.


The system could also be used
for reading water meters.
The voice component could
include local and long distance
phone service and the city
could form relations with
major cellphone carriers to
offer combined or "bundled
services."
She said Dunnellon would
control the utility and all gen-
erations of community would
make use of it.
She believes it could attract
new employers and home buy-

It's a big weekend for
Dunnellon High School
sports.
For the second straight
year the Dunnellon High
School girls softball team
is headed back to the
Class 4A State Final Four
and the baseball team is
in the third round of the
Class 4A championship
series.
Last year after winning
17 straight games the
softball team nailed a
berth in the final and
faced Stanton.
Dunnellon dispatched
Stanton 9-0 and went on
to beat Lake Wales 3-1 at
Plant City Stadium for
the state title with plenty
of faithful fans in atten-
dance.

nity support for the team.
The 2009 Tigers were the
first high school softball
team ever in Marion
County to play in the
state final four.
It was proud a weekend
for the city of Dunnellon,
which joined the high
school in giving the play-
ers and coaches a rousing
send-off. There was a
rally at the school fol-
lowed by a caravan of
team vehicles through
downtown Dunnellon
with a police and fire de-
partment escort.
Many businesses deco-
rated with the school col-
ors of red and black and
some supporters stood
out on the street holding
signs and balloons.
Now it's time to do it
again. The 2010 girls high
school softball team is
chasing another state
title.
According to athletic


director Frank Beasley,
the state finals are being
played at the Softball Na-
tional Training Center in
Clermont. The Tigers will
face Jensen Beach in a 7
p.m. game on Friday, May
14. Admission is set by
the FHSAA at $8 per per-
son.
The winner advances to
the final on Saturday,
May 15 against the win-
ner of the Bartram
Trail-Naples game.
ESPN's high school
sports website RISE, has
ranked Naples number
one in its top 50 teams in
nation and Dunnellon
number 2. That website
has speculated on the po-
tential for a showdown
between the two Florida
powerhouses. Naples
won the state title in
2008.
A sendoff is planned

Despite the threat of rain, these fans showed their true colors at the Tigers home

same time, right next door, the baseball team defeated St. Cloud.


Progress agrees to rate freeze


CHRIS VAN ORNER
Special to Riverland News
Progress Energy
Florida has reached an
agreement with the state
to freeze base rates until
the end of 2012.
"Progress Energy
Florida is pleased to have
reached a fair agreement
that will benefit our cus-
tomers by keeping base
rates stable during this
challenging economic en-
vironment," said Vincent
M. Dolan, president and
chief executive officer of
Progress Energy Florida.
"Eliminating the con-
cern over rising costs of
electricity over the next
few years will certainly
be a relief for many," At-
torney General Bill Mc-
Collum said.


Currently, residential
customers pay $48.58 in
base rates for the use of
1,000 kilowatt-hours a
month, which is about av-
erage for a small home.
According to the util-
ity's website, the base
rate accounts for 26 per-
cent of the customer's
bill. It covers the utility's
expenses for the building
and maintenance of
power plants, lines, poles
and other infrastructure,
bucket trucks and other
equipment.
"It covers the cost of
producing power and de-
livering it to the cus-
tomer," said Cherie
Jacobs, a spokeswoman
for the utility
Fifty percent of a cus-
tomer's bill goes toward
fuel costs, on which the


utility said it makes no
profit.
Twelve percent of the
bill covers taxes and fees,
according to the utility.
Eight percent is paid to
shareholders and 4 per-
cent goes to interest to
bondholders.
Progress Energy
Florida, the state's sec-
ond-largest power com-
pany, reached an
agreement Monday with
the State Attorney Gen-
eral's Office and other
parties in exchange for
other considerations.
State regulators had re-
jected a proposed $500
million-a-year rate in-
crease in January.
The agreement still has
to be approved by the
Florida Public Service
Commission. The parties


jointly filed the settle-
ment with the PSC at 8
a.m. Monday and have re-
quested the commission
to consider the agree-
ment at its June 1 meet-
ing.
The utility, which
serves 1.6 million cus-
tomers, said bills might
still fluctuate as certain
other charges are re-
viewed and increases are
passed on to customers.
Aside from freezing the
base rates, the agreement
also would cap the repair
costs that customers
might have to pay in the
event of a catastrophic
storm, McCollum said. It
would allow the utility
immediate access to
funds to make emergency
repairs.
The utility's midpoint


for return on equity will
remain at 10.5 percent. If
it falls below 9.5 percent
at any time before Dec.
31, 2012, the utility can
seek full, limited or in-
terim rate relief.
The utility also will
have the discretion to re-
duce the depreciation re-
serve by up to $150
million in 2010, up to $250
million in 2011 and up to
any remaining balance in
2012. The depreciation
reserve is a company ac-
count that accumulates
probable replacement
costs of equipment each
year so that funds will be
available when needed.
Jacobs said this provision
would have no impact on
customers' bills as it con-
cerned accounting meth-
ods.

World-class heart care

just inches from home.



Undergoing open-heart surgery is a lot less stressful when you don't have to travel far from home.

Citrus Memorial Heart Center is located right here on the Nature Coast and we provide

the same amazing care as big-city hospitals. In fact, since January 2004, nearly

2,000 patients have trusted us for open-heart surgery. It may be because we use the most sophisticated

technology, or maybe it's because we have some of the most knowledgeable cardiovascular physicians

and staff. Whatever the reason, we're going to continue to grow and heal even more hearts.

K-9 dog

SHEMIRWILES
Special to Riverland News
K-9 Mito fought his way
back to health after suffer-
ing a severe injury in the
line of duty last year.
But his fighting spirit
wasn't enough to overcome
one of the biggest battles of
his life cancer.
"For those who remem-
ber K-9 Mito I had to put
him down today, due to los-
ing the battle with cancer.
He will be missed," Citrus
County Sheriff's Office
deputy James Davis wrote
in an e-mail. Davis was
Mito's handler.
He was also there the
morning Mito was stabbed
by 26-year-old Dominic Gi-
acobbe. According to sher-
iff's office officials,
Giacobbe was jumping in
and out of traffic early in
the morning on March 23,
2009, near U.S. 19 in Crystal
River, just south of the
Sonic fast-food restaurant.
Deputies were called to
the area and confronted Gi-
acobbe, who was carrying a
large knife. Davis released
Mito to help apprehend Gi-
acobbe, but Giacobbe
stabbed the dog.
After that Giacobbe
charged toward deputies,
which is when shots were
fired and Giacobbe was
killed. Mito was rushed to
Dunnellon Animal Hospital
where Dr. Paul Mack
treated him.
Mack explained that on
March 23 that Mito came to
the hospital with a 1-inch-
wide stab wound of the left
side of his chest. After a

PLASMA JETS
INSTEAD OF
DRILLS?
The future of dentistry
may be more akin to science
fiction than patients might
ever have believed. In fact, it
seems that new research
involving streams of
bacteria-killing plasma may
replace today's drills in the
near future. Plasma is
formed when electrons are
emitted by energized gases.
In this case, researchers used
a relatively cool beam of
purple plasma to eliminate
oral bacteria in dental
cavities. The plasma beam
removed dentin (the material
beneath the enamel that
comprises the majority of the
tooth) more selectively than
a conventional drill. While
this research is preliminary,
researchers believe that
plasma jets can be ready for
removing tooth decay in as
few as three to five years.
This would certainly
make visits to the dentist's
office a bit less nerve-
racking. Talk to us at the
office of MARK E.
HAMPTON, D.DS, about
any dental concerns. As your
dental professional, we pride
ourselves on providing the
highest quality dental care
for you and your family, in a
relaxing and comfortable
environment. A good
experience with dentistry is
based on making the right
choice in a family dentist
and in taking steps to keep
dental costs at a minimum
through self-care at home
between visits. Please call
352-489-5071 to schedule an
appointment. We're located
at 11902 Illinois Street.
We're "Dedicated to
Excellent Dentistry."
P.S. It isn't the heat of the
plasma that is thought to kill
cavity-causing bacteria, it is
the highly reactive molecules
produced by charged oxygen
molecules surrounding the
plasma jet that get the job
done.

Prayer of thanks
I am grateful that I was able to wit-
ness a National Day of Prayer Assem-
bly at the gazebo at Dunnellon City
Hall on Thursday, May 6. It gave me
great pride to see the folks that at-
tended. Prayer is not dead in this great
nation of ours.
I want to offer a prayer of thanks to
all those that attended, especially
those that offered prayers during the
ceremony Thank you Vice Mayor Fred
and Mrs. Stark for attending. Our City
Council was represented by your pres-
ence. I was grateful to see our military
represented by Army Staff Sgt. David
West, telling us of his three tours in
Iraq and offering a prayer for all mili-
tary that protect us so we can have the
opportunity to have an event such as
this. My family thanks him for his serv-
ice. Mr. Taylor, you showed your gift of
leadership before as mayor of Dunnel-
lon, and again that evening as com-
mander of Wall-Rives Post 58
American Legion for offering a prayer
for government. With our local and na-
tional economy in the state it is in, I
was grateful for Carolyn Cairns repre-
senting the prayer for businesses. Ms
Mathew, your prayer for families was
well needed and gratefully accepted.
And finally, I was especially pleased
and grateful to have witnessed some-
thing that was at the least, very dra-
matic to me. After the conclusion of
the ceremony, I noticed a circle of
prayer forming. Behind the crowd, I
saw an assemblage of young people,
specifically, Coach Kevin Fagan and
his State Champion Dunnellon Lady
Tigers and families, kneeling in a cir-
cle of prayer. Others came in and
joined hands and prayed with them.
Coach Fagan, you are blessed with a
great ability for leadership and dig-

prayer meeting must have been a won-
derful experience for all of them, I'm
sure. It is a blessing to all of us that
witnessed this show of Christian faith

your team, and your upcoming adven-

blood and oxygen it needs. Without
oxygen, the nerves in the brain die
within minutes. The more time
that passes without treatment, the
greater the damage to the brain.
Treatment within three hours of a
stroke can often reduce long-term
effects.
The association emphasizes that
twice as many women die of stroke
than from breast cancer each year.
But despite this surprising statis-
tic, women are more worried about
their risk of getting breast cancer
than their stroke risk. What's more,
women think stroke is a men's dis-
ease. But the truth is more women
than men will die from stroke.
Everyone has some risk for
stroke; the key is to know where


you stand. And while some risk fac-
tors, such as age and family history
are beyond your control, lifestyle
risk factors are often an individual
choice.
The Florida Department of
Health says you can reduce your
chance of having a stroke by having
a healthy lifestyle including: Be
smoke free. Get help to quit smok-
ing. Be physically active. Regular
physical activity helps lower blood
pressure and helps you maintain a
healthy weight. Try going for a
brisk, 30-minute walk on most days
of the week. Eat a healthy diet. Eat
foods with less saturated fat, cho-
lesterol, and sodium. Eat plenty of
vegetables, fruits, wholegrain
breads and cereals, and low-fat

Area perfect for ecotourism


Visitors to west-central Florida can
enjoy the area's natural beauty and
still make a difference in preserving
the its natural resources, thanks to
conservation programs developed by
the Southwest Florida Water Man-
agement District.
This is National Travel and
Tourism Week and the District offers
many ways to celebrate tourism with-
out sacrificing the environment.
Visitors within the District's 16-
county region can save water for
Florida's future by staying at a Water
CHAMP hotel or motel and dining at
a Water PRO restaurant. They can
also enjoy recreational activities on
public conservation lands obtained
by the District and its partners to pro-
tect Florida's water resources
More than 450 hotels have joined
with the District to save water. The
free Water Conservation Hotel and
Motel Program (Water CHAMP) helps
hotels and motels save water and
money while practicing more effi-
cient housekeeping and landscaping.
Part of the program involves a linen
and towel reuse program that laun-
ders bed linens and towels every


third day of a guest's stay, unless re-
quested otherwise by guests.
More than 250 restaurants in the
District are taking steps to conserve
water. The free Water Program for
Restaurant Outreach (Water PRO)
helps restaurants lower operating
costs and conserve water by making a
few adjustments in service and ap-
pliances. Did you know that every
glass of water brought to a table uses
an additional two glasses of water
during cleaning? Serving water only
upon request is a great way to con-
serve water, save money and reduce
staff time.
Join the 2.5 million people who
visit the more than 50 District public
conservation lands every year. You
can find these sites in the Recreation
At-A-Glance brochure available in
many hotel and motel rooms and lob-
bies. The brochure allows the reader
to identify where District-owned
lands are located and what types of
recreation are permitted. Or you can
find the brochure on the District's
website at www.WaterMatters.org/at-
a-glance/.

TIME TO SMILE


Mother Nature's

revenge

I debated telling you this story. I
have always told it like it is, even
when no one wants to hear it or has
the guts to say it. Sorry, I was born that
way. I don't hold back. This story won't
put me in a very pleasant light but it
must be told. If I am going to call out
someone else for their miss deeds I
must also tell on myself.
I broke the law. Well, technically it
isn't a law (I sure hope it isn't). It's
more of choosing to do the wrong thing.
Let's just say I am not going to win any
good stewardship awards from the
This won't make any
eco-friendly do-good-
ers very happy either. I
know it made Mother
Nature mad. She got
her revenge.
So it's Earth Day and
what do I decide to do?
While every good citi-
Kathleen zen of the earth is out
Wallace picking up trash and
caring for wild life I
decide to power wash my pool deck. I
know its water preservation month. It's
not a very eco-friendly thing to do on
Earth Day. This does not deter me.
Let me give you my justification. You
can decide if it is worthy. I told you I
have been suffering with my allergies.
My asthma has flared up. I can't afford
another hospital visit so the pollen has
to go. My pool and deck were covered
in springtime's green gift. So I waffle
back and forth between honoring Earth
Day or breathing. It was an easy choice.
I borrowed my brother's power
washer. It runs on gas. My carbon foot-
print is now a triple D. This washer
doesn't have an automatic "on" switch.
You have to constantly hold down the
handle to get the water to spray. Being
oh so clever (or lazy) I decide to use a
bread twist tie to hold the handle
down.
Now, as I am twisting the tie I think
to myself this is probably a safety
mechanism that I am dismissing. At
this point I also come to the conclusion
that I am secretly a man because a.) I
love power tools, b.) I never listen to my
woman's intuition and c.) I never put
things back the way I found them.
Having had my brain removed at
birth I decide to do this at the hottest
part of the day. I slather on the sun-
screen and get to work.
I removed the filter cup top and
spray the thick ring around the cup.
I work on the frame holding up the
screen. Man, it's getting hot.
Within minutes I am sweating. Here
is a lesson I learned. Don't put sun-
screen on your forehead if you are
going to sweat.
All at once my eyes begin to burn. I
am squinting and rubbing at them with
my forearm. No luck. They really sting.
I can't see a thing.
I drop the washer to rub my eyes.
The way the sprayer falls sends a pierc-
ing shot of water on my leg. Oh, yeah
that's why there is no automatic "on!"
Damn that woman's intuition! I try not
to land in the pollen filled pool so I
step backwards into the open filter
cup.
Why didn't I put the cap back the way
I found it? I land on my behind as the
washer soaks my face. Fighting the
water spray I crawl to a chair and grab
my towel. My leg is cut from falling in
the filter cup and I have welts on my
face and leg. Thank goodness I had the
sense to wear my bathing suit because
I look like a wet cat.
Mother Nature, you win! I get it. I am
a slow learner. Forgive me I am human.
Next year I pick up trash. Are you
happy now?

Yeah for RespiteCare
here in Dunnellon.
In the Riverland News,
April 29, there was an ar-
ticle for respite care at
the First United
Methodist Church on
Tuesday from 12:30 to
4:30. After 3-1/2 months of
taking care of my 98-year-
old father, being unable
to leave him alone, I
breathed a sigh of relief.
My phone call was
greeted with "welcome"
and arriving on Tuesday,
with my father, was very
inviting. I knew this ex-
perience was going to be
wonderful and it was. All
the volunteers are ener-
getic and upbeat. This is
open to the public, at no
cost. The socializing for
my father; just to hear a
man's voice for a change,
made a world of differ-
ence. He cannot wait to
return and has praised
everyone there, to all our
family members. Now he
has something to talk
about, that is his. Thank
you one and all.

are invited to stay and
enjoy a free picnic.


Prizes will be awarded

Persons interested in
joining in the cleanup are
asked to contact Jerry
Rogers at 489-4648 for co-

41, across from the St.
John the Baptist Catholic
Church. This will be a
meeting you won't want to
miss, as there are some
special plans for ending
the year on a high note.
The program will be con-
ducted by our own Master
Gardener members and
assisted by other experi-
enced gardeners. The
main focus will be on iden-
tifying problem pests, dis-
eases, and weeds, and
choosing environmentally
friendly solutions to re-
store the natural system of
checks and balances in
our gardens. Everyone is
encouraged to bring their
own samples of perceived
problems, and others will
be provided by the pro-
gram committee.
Seasonal maintenance
practices will be reviewed
to help keep your gardens
in good shape through the
summer and into fall. In
the meantime, continue
with planting, fertilizing,
weeding, pruning, and,
most of all, enjoying your
spring gardens! Thin out
those volunteer seedlings
that keep sprouting in
your fresh beds, pot them,
and bring them to the
Grow and Share table at
the meeting. Now is the
time to share your garden
bounty with others. Be
sure to sign in to be eligi-
ble for the plant of the
month door prize draw-
ings, and get tickets for the
50-50 drawing. Refresh-
ments will be available.

DES reading coach honored


Congratulations to Ms.
Jabo, our reading coach.
She just got awarded the
Brighthouse National Star
Teacher Award for a big
special education project
she completed. It was ti-
tled: "People with Disabil-
ities aren't so different."
She will receive her award
June 24 at a special Gala
at the Orlando Gaylord
Palms Resort. She will re-
ceive a thousand dollars
and a special Tiffany Crys-
tal Star award. This is the
second time Ms. Jabo won
this award.
We are very proud of you
Ms. Jabo and lucky to have
you as our reading coach!
Mr. Robles, our gifted
teacher reports "The Mon-
day gifted class at Dunnel-
lon School culminated an
activity on aerospace with
the launching of rockets
on the field adjacent to the
High School. The weeks
before the launching the
students discussed and
worked on the laws of mo-
tion, rocket design and
history, techniques of
measuring altitude, and
the space program. The
unit of study was prepared
by the staff of the Johnson
Space Center."
It was an overcast after-
noon as the fifth graders


headed out for our annual
student/faculty softball
game. The elementary
school "upperclassmen"
took to the field as the
teachers stepped up to the
plate. The teachers con-
nected! They scored -
they fielded, but those
fifth graders took the lead
and in the top of the
fourth, it was all over with
a 4 to 3 victory for the stu-
dent sluggers. Everyone
had great fun and it was a
great show of sportsman-
ship as both teams passed
slapping "Good Game"
High Fives to each other.
Although still gray, every-
one felt the sunshine!
We recently acknowl-
edged our volunteers with
a little party in the media
center. The high school
student volunteers, who
number over 40, came first
before their school
started. They enjoyed re-
freshments and received
their certificates. They
logged in almost 1800
hours. Our dean, Ms. Hol-
lenbeck, said, "Thanks to
our students from DHS for
setting a wonderful exam-
ple for our students."
We have about 15 volun-
teers in the senior cate-
gory, which is for those 70
and over. They did an


amazing job with over 2100
hours!
Then there are the "oth-
ers" who number about 75
and they logged in 3800
hours. Our very thoughtful
and wonderful Ms. Coburn
knitted prizes for a draw-
ing for several lucky win-
ners!
We really appreciate all
they do. Our school would
not be the same without
them. And they definitely
help to enrich the lives of
our children.
Don't forget Sonic Spirit
Night on Wednesdays. We
want to support them for
supporting us in so many
projects during the year.
Just eat and bring in your
receipts to school the next
day. Thank you Sonic!!

LARRY BUGG
News Correspondent
After last Friday night's
7-2 win over Eustis, the
Tigers are in the Class 4A
regional finals- the elite
eight for the second sea-
son in a row.
Dunnellon High head
baseball coach Tommy Boss
had said hurler Gavin
McArdle was on the mound
because he doesn't give up
walks.
And last week, McArdle
proved Boss right.
McArdle issued zero bases
on balls and struck out seven
while throwing a five-hitter
on May 7. Dunnellon High
backed him up with excel-
lent defense and the Tigers
beat Eustis 7-2 in a Class 4A
Regional 2 semifinal game at
Mike Payne Field.
Dunnellon (23-5) will now
face Hernando High on Fri-
day, May 14 in Brooksville.
The winner takes the Re-
gion 2 title and will play in
the Class 4A Final Four in
Port St. Lucie in May 21.
McArdle (5-1) didn't over-
power the Eustis (18-10) hit-
ters but he often fooled
them.
"It was just mixing
pitches," said the tall jun-
ior. "My curveball and my
changeup were working.
This is the number one


biggest game I have
pitched. We had great de-
fense."
"Gavin did an outstand-
ing job," said Boss. "When
you have Gavin on the
mound, you are going to
have our best defense. This
is the best defense we have
had in my time here. Gavin
is there because he doesn't
give up walks.
"We had great defense.
We played small ball. These
are all great kids."
The Tigers scored two
runs in the first inning
without a hit. Ronnie Daw-
son walked and David
Miller reached on an error.
Both scored on errors.
In the third inning,
Micah Baly reached when
Eustis losing pitcher Alex
Hagner hit him with a
pitch. Baly advanced on
David Bouton's single and
scored on Conner Wentz's
fielder's choice.
Tiger center fielder Reid
Love made a run-saving,
over-the-shoulder catch at
the wall in the second in-
ning on a fly ball hit by Pan-
ther right fielder and relief
pitcher Keill McEachern.
Eustis (18-10) third base-
man Austin Corbitt could
only advance to third off
Love's catch after smashing
an RBI double on the pre-
vious play, leaving the
Tigers with a 2-1 second-in-
ning lead that they would
never relinquish.
The Tigers scored three
runs in the fifth inning.
Dawson and Miller both
singled. Dawson scored on
Bouton's groundout. Baly
reached first on a catcher's
interference and Miller
and Baly both scored on
Wentz's double.
Ricky Lopez singled and
scored in the sixth inning.
He reached second on a
wild pitch and third on a
passed ball. Miller singled
Lopez in.
Dunnellon had seven hits.
Wentz had three RBIs. Daw-
son and Miller both scored
a pair of runs and Miller
was 2-for4 with an RBI.

Riverland News,Thursday,May 13,2010 11


DHS softball team


back in final four


JOHN COSCIA
Special to Riverland News
Last year, the Dunnel-
lon softball team was all
business as they marched
their way to a state title.
The Tigers knocked off
one opponent at a time,
barely cracking a smile
along the way until short-
stop Sami Fagan regis-
tered the final out to
clinch the Class 4A state
title.
That's what made their
Tuesday, May 4 post-game
celebration following
their 2-0 victory over the
Mitchell Bulldogs (25-4)
in the Region 4A-2 title
game so extraordinary
The team still has two
games left to accomplish
their ultimate goal -
back-to-back state cham-
pionships.
But this has been a dif-
ferent season. One that
has seen the Tigers (29-1)
claw their way to a No. 1
ranking in the nation. But
playing an entire season
as defending state cham-
pions has taken its toll
and it's a fact not lost on
head coach Kevin Fagan.
"They say it's not easy
to get to the top but it's
even harder to stay
there," Fagan said. "The
girls have really experi-
enced that as a team this
year. We've definitely had
a bumpier road. There
have been some games
that were definitely
tougher than we thought
they would be. But it's
like that ...the girls have
been playing all season
with a bulls-eye on their
back. That's why they
were so excited tonight."
But this one, like a few
others, didn't come easy
Mitchell ace Cortney
Radke threw a great
game, limiting the nor-
mally high-octane Tigers



Sportsmen

can act early

and save
There will be an increase
in the cost of some of
Florida's hunting and salt-
water fishing permits, be-
ginning July 1.
If sportsmen act now,
however, they can beat the
price increase.
On July 1,2010, the cost of
a turkey permit will go up
from $5 to $10 for Florida
residents and from $100 to
$125 for nonresidents. In
addition, Florida waterfowl
permits will increase as
well, from $3 to $5.
The cost of two saltwater
fishing permits also will go
up July 1. The snook permit
will increase from $2 to $10,
and lobster permits will in-
crease from $2 to $5.
Until July 1, though,
sportsmen can buy all of
these permits at the current
prices, and all permits are
valid for one year after the
date of purchase.
There also is a new deer
permit that will be re-
quired whenever hunting
deer in Florida, beginning
during the upcoming 2010-
11 hunting season. The per-
mit will cost $5 and will not
be available for purchase
until July 1.
Those with a Sportsman's
License, Gold Sportsman's
License, 64 or Older Sports-
man's License, Military
Gold Sportsman's License,
Lifetime Hunting License
or Lifetime Sportsman's Li-
cense will not need to pur-
chase the new deer permit
because it has already been
included in each of these li-
censes, even if they were
purchased before July 1.
However, the deer permit
is not included with a hunt-
ing license, combination
hunting/freshwater fishing
license, combination hunt-
ing/freshwater/saltwater li-
cense or a five-year hunting
license. Anyone hunting
deer with either of these li-
censes must also buy the $5
deer permit to hunt deer


legally
All permits and related
licenses can be purchased
at county tax collectors' of-
fices, some stores, at
www.fl.wildlifelicense.com
or by calling 888-HUNT-
FLORIDA (486-8356).


offense to just three hits.
But as good as the Bull-
dogs pitcher was, Dun-
nellon's Kasey Fagan was
better. Fagan threw a no-
hitter and faced just four
batters over the mini-
mum. And while she only
struck out four, low by
her standards, she in-
duced four other Bulldog
batters to hit grounders
back to the mound and
didn't allow so much as a
fly ball out of the infield.
Despite the impressive
effort, her father and
head coach knew it was-
n't his daughter's best.
"I just don't think she is
on top of her game right
now. But if she registers
outs and we win that's all
that matters. We'd like to
get to Naples. That's our
goal, to get to the champi-
onship game against
Naples. This group of
girls has wanted that
since they've been 10
years old."
But before they can
make reservations with
Naples, the Tigers will
have to defeat Jenson
Beach in the Class 4A
state semifinals on Fri-
day, May 14 at the Na-
tional Training Center in
Clermont much the
same way as they did
against the Bulldogs on
May 4. Dunnellon's hits
were few on that night
but the Tigers made them
count.

second inning Haley
Fagan laced a double
down the right field line.
She then advanced to
third on a heads-up play
when Mitchell's catcher
lost control of a Radke
pitch. Although the ball
never traveled further
than five feet from the
plate, the Bulldogs
catcher was unable to
find it in time to make a
play on Haley
And then came the play
that would give the
Tigers the only run they
would need for victory
With Sam Wright ahead
in the count, the Tigers
head coach put on a sui-
cide squeeze that Wright
executed perfectly, easily
scoring Haley from third.
But the youngest of the
three Fagan daughters
wasn't done delivering on
this night.

In the top of the sixth
inning, with a steady rain
falling, the Bulldogs had
runners on first and sec-
ond with one out and
were threatening to tie
the game. And when
Radke laced a laser down
the third base line it
looked as if they might do
just that. But Haley vacu-
umed up the groundball,
touched third for the
force out and fired to first
for the inning-ending
double play
"That was huge for us,"
Kevin admitted. "That
took a lot out of them
when we turned them
away there."
In the bottom of the
sixth the Tigers got an in-


surance run when Kristi
Hanewinkel earned a
bases-loaded walk that
forced Kasey in with the
game's final run of the
night.
Mitchell, however, with
the rain coming down
stronger, made one at-
tempt at a final splash in
the top of the seventh in-
ning.
"Kasey doesn't throw
real well in the rain so I
was a little concerned. I
was thinking about bring-
ing Sam Wright in to
pitch. She's our mudder."
But despite getting two
base runners in the
frame, Mitchell never re-
ally threatened as nei-
ther made it past first.


And when Kasey got the
last batter to ground out
to her sister at third,
Dunnellon's ticket for the
Final Four was officially
punched.
"This is a big weight off
their shoulders to get
back to the Final Four.
That's a big deal and
they're really enjoying it
right now," said Fagan as
he watched his girls cele-
brate.
Asked what it would
mean to repeat as state
champions the Dunnellon
head coach reminisced
back to his playing days as
a member of the San
Francisco 49ers. "When I
won that second Super
Bowl I was a happy man."

Hospital board wants expanded services


As the result of a re-
cently completed five
year strategic plan, the
Citrus Memorial Health
Foundation, Inc. has re-
quested that Citrus Me-
morial hospital expand
in the areas of cancer
treatment, geriatrics and
psychiatric care.
In 2009, Citrus Memo-
rial embarked on a
strategic planning
process to identify not
only strengths and weak-
nesses of the organiza-
tion, but also key areas
where opportunities for
growth may exist. The
Foundation recently
identified these three


areas to build upon.
Cancer Treatment
As the age of our popu-
lation shifts ever upward,
the need for continual
cancer care has become
the accepted standard of
care. By expanding Cit-
rus Memorial's menu of
services the hospital will
not only boost compensa-
tion but will be able to
better serve the commu-
nity affected by this
deadly disease.
Geriatrics
The practice of geri-
atric medicine has al-
ways been a special focus
for Citrus Memorial. Cit-


rus County is recognized
at the second oldest
county in the state of
Florida. This has always
been a key focus and
makes real sense to ex-
pand for the most vulner-
able of our population.
Psychiatric Care
The State of Florida
has historically hovered
near the bottom of the list
for funding and counties
are forced to fill the gap.
In Citrus County the need
is very real for mental
health and psychiatry,
making this the third nat-
ural choice.
Foundation Board
member Bob Collins ex-


plained that the recent
completion of the Foun-
dation's Capital Cam-
paign sparked the idea.
"Our goal was $1.5 mil-
lion and we've already
exceeded that for the
Family Care Health and
Education Center," he
said. "The services we
thought about offering in
that facility five years ago
are different from what
our county needs now.
"We should endorse a
movement toward care
for cancer, geriatrics and
mental health."

May is Older Americans Month


Florida Elder Affairs
Secretary E. Douglas
Beach today encouraged
all Floridians to take time
during Older Americans
Month to recognize the
many achievements and
contributions of Florida
seniors, who make up al-
most one-quarter of the
state's residents.
The Department of Elder
Affairs is leading a
statewide recognition of
May as Older Americans
Month by inviting Floridi-
ans to participate in com-
munity activities across the
state honoring seniors. The
Department is joining with
local communities and or-
ganizations within
Florida's aging services
network to recognize the
many contributions of the
state's 4.2 million residents
age 60 and older.
"Older adults add so
much to Florida's commu-
nities, and without them our
state simply would not be
the great place it is today,"
said Beach. "This month
provides an ideal opportu-


nity to pay tribute to those
special individuals who
have added so much to our
lives throughout the years."
The theme of this year's
nationwide recognition is
"Age Strong! Live Long!"
Beach noted that this
year's theme recognizes
the vitality of Florida's sen-
ior population, while cele-
brating their tremendous
impact on local communi-
ties both economically and
socially
Observations of Older
Americans Month will coin-
cide with other related
recognition also taking
place during May. May is
also Elder Law Month, and
in recognition of the fact
that legal needs are in-
creasingly entwined with
other issues facing elders,
the Department has
awarded a series of mini-
grants for local legal serv-
ices providers to host
community events to edu-
cate seniors about the legal
rights and protections
available to them.
In addition, Secretary


Beach will join state Sur-
geon General Ana Via-
monte Ros to recognize May
as Women's Health Month,
which this year will put a
special focus on the more
than 2.4 million women age
60 and older in Florida.
The Department of Elder
Affairs is the state agency
responsible for administer-


ing human services pro-
grams for elders. It works to
create an environment that
enables most older Floridi-
ans to live independently in
their own homes and com-
munities. For more informa-
tion on the Department, call
850414-2000 or go online to

Old kiverland News article stirs memories


Hello everyone
I have re-written (from a
copy) an article my brother,
David Raulerson, wrote in
1986. I typed it just the
same way he wrote it. It is a
copy of a copy so it is not in
good shape to send any
other way
Marsha Deluca
Dunnellon
Riverland News, Novem-
ber 6, 1986 SNOOPING
AROUND by Russ James
We received a wonderful
letter in the Riverland
News office this week from
David D. Raulerson who
grew up in Dunnellon and
now resides in Andover,
Mass. Reading this letter
will bring back a flood of
memories for anyone who
has lived here for any
length of time and maybe
tickle the fancy of a lot of
the new comers.

Fond memories
of Dunnellon
Today I received a copy
of the Riverland News from
my old school chum, Tim
Hammock. I called him to
say thanks, and we talked
of years gone by.
As a sales and marketing
consultant in Boston for the
past six years, I often
thought of Dunnellon and
the surrounding area. In
speaking with Tim, the
memories came fast and fu-
rious. For the sake of pre-
serving some of those
memories I thought I'd
share them with you. Per-
haps those of my age group
will enjoy looking back too.
Whatever happened to
that glorious place we
called the Lyric Theatre?
Where Bunny Sammons,


friend of every pimple-face
kid in town, quieted us
down, caught juju fruits in
the head, and occasionally
issued credit from his own
pocket so we could see Con-
quest of Space.
Where did all those
beautiful red bricks in US
41 go? Nothing was ever
better than Millard Lee's
flat-top with fenders, or the
smell of a nice cleaned suit
at Tom Tom's cleaners. A.O.
Robertson was surrogate
Dad to everybody, and buy-
ing worms from Nell at
Lucky Landing insured the
purchaser of knowing just
exactly where the fish
would bite.
Leatrice Maxwell was
the prettiest teacher a guy
ever saw, and Russell
Maxwell was a walking
computer programmed
with thousands of stories
and tricks that made you al-
most like math.
There was a tare sealant
on the seams of the gymna-
sium that true red-neck
boys could chew. Coach
Bomar ran us into total ex-
haustion. I always believed
he would have best as a Ma-
rine D.I.
B.B.Taylor would take a
boy fishing any time, any
place and out-catch him
every time. Kisses stolen
on the pilings at the city
beach were nice. I was par-
ticularly pleased to see that
John Bostick, the fairest
man I ever knew, is still
there.
Does anyone ever dive
off the old trestle area be-
hind Vogt Springs? Are all
those monstrous holes my
dad dug for Kibler Camp
Phosphate still around? My
aunt Sophie gave us all a


Deb Simpkins won the costume contest at the mur-
der mystery party Saturday evening. A $25 prize was
awarded to tickets holders to encourage wearing a
costume from the 1920s. Deb is pictured with the
Dunnellon Historical Society President Jon Sharkey.


place to go called The Feed
Bag. I think she gave away
more burgers than she sold.
Mr. Kinnebrew, later my
boss on the Police Depart-
ment, owned the Western
Auto Store. I bought my
first baseball glove from
him at age 10 for 50 cents a
week. Total price, $9.50. Is
the mysterious ally still
there between Sallys 5 and
10 cents and whatever?
Mr. Shuman greeted you
in the post office with the
little octagon tiles that
were black and white. I'll
bet there isn't a sign hang-
ing over the street to whack
you as you run past the the-
atre. Richard Nall is by far
the greatest pharmacist
you could ask for, but I won-
der if he could serve an ice
cream soda as well as his
father could?
I have a small scar on my
chin that Dr. Waugh
stitched up with genuine
concern. Billy, are you still
competing against
Richard? The best Cherry-
Vanilla Pepsi ever served
was at Wise's Drug Store.
(Hide in the corner if you
are reading comics without
paying.)
Charles Rush and Gene
Corbin paid for a lot ofates
we had. Nurturing orange
trees and lugging melons
for these two men was
hard, but more fun than
any job I ever had.
Do they still go parking at
Dinkleberry Hill? Does
Rockwell still strike fear
into every teenager on Hal-
loween? I was deeply sad-
dened to hear that L.A.


Sunday afternoon's cos-
tume contest winner dur-
ing the murder mystery
at the train depot was
Cheryl Caudle. She is
pictured with the Dunnel-
Ion Historical Society
President Jon Sharkey.


Bridges left us. He used to
let us run all over his prop-
erty on Blue Run, and em-
ployed us at his service
station.
I wonder if Terry and
Kenny Roberts would like
for me to share some of the
good times we had? How
many days have I spent at
Ned's Hole? Mr. Gary gave
my dad loans at the Dun-
nellon State Bank, while
Mrs. Gary cracked my
knuckles in third grade.
Bob Hess's Co-Op store
competed against Mr. Dick-
erson's and Charles Tullis
ran the A&P with the great
smelling coffee. Bill and
Betty Vaughn ran the
coolest place in town, The
Recreation Center, where
pinball was a nickel. Be-
fore them, was the Polka
Dot Club next to City Hall.
(Was that Mrs. Flick?)
The town garbage collec-
tors were affectionately
known as Rock and Scrap,
and collected it all very
well in a one ton dump
truck, thank you. Rock Ed-
wards, God bless him,
shared the secrets of the lo-
cation where he dumped
garbage in the 40's with
Tim and me, (Bottles ga-
lore!)
Gordon Cooper was
teaching Billy Gene Young
to be a projectionist at the
theatre. I can still see Billy,
spitting between his teeth,
through the little window
above Pennsylvania Av-
enue.
Uncle Mose Robinson
lived close to me, and he let
me play with his cows.


Chief Bailey lived two
houses away, and passed
me for supper with the
fender mounted siren on
the only police car in town.
(I think it was his, actually)
I made my first journey
outside Dunnellon from
Dinkins Shell. The big
Greyhound bus took me to
my cousin in Tampa. Ice
was delivered to my house
from the Atlantic ice house
behind Mrs. Peebles home.
I remember the last steam
locomotive to cross Main
Street.
K.P Hole was Saturday
and beneath the water
tower was Fourth of July
Labor Day was on the With-
lachochee at the trailer
park, with greased poles
and needle- in-the-
haystack competition.
I served my time as life-
guard at Rainbow Springs
under Bill Sherill. Fishing
Jimmy caught more catfish
than any one man in history,
and Mrs. Anne Martin
prayed over me in my dads
store a hundred times. Roger
Long was the greatest gro-
cery man alive and Mr. Sim-
mons Barber Shop blended
smells with a shoe repair
store and the Buckhorn Bar.
Clarence Hammock,
(Tims dad) Red Hayes,
Shock Dixon and L.A.
Bridges kept our house
safe from fire. Stan and Dix


Stephens tap danced their
way through school while I
answered to their mom in
fourth grade.
Butch Crawford played
hooky with me while his
dad preached at the Baptist
church, and Rev. Douglas
Stanfield took over from
Rev. Eldon Simmons at the
Methodist church. Later,
Rev. Howell took the reins
there.
WJ. Davis, Mayor, and
owner of Davis Motor Court
kept a coke machine lit all
night for us. Mrs. Lightners
home yielded excellent
fishing poles from her bam-
boo plant.
I remembered my calf,
Starlight, that was picked
up from Wootens Dairy on
Rt. 488. We saved him from
death because he was a
bull. My Dad took the back
seats out of the 55 Chevy
and hauled him home, then
made me get up at 6a.m.
every day to feed him. We
suddenly had him on the
table not long after.
Memories are great. Dun-
nellon is moving on. But,
somehow I feel there are
young people there who
will feel the fondest memo-
ries of all when they are 40,
balding, and walking past
Plymouth Rock in Massa-
chusetts.
Thank you, Dunnellon.
You're my kind if town.
