City to hire communications guru In a move to bolster its image and promote its services and provide information to subscribers and potential subscribers, the city will hire a communications and program coordinator for Greenlight Dunnellon Communications. City Manager Lisa Algiere, in confirming the city is now accepting applicants for the position which will pay between $36,063 and $54,084, said creating the position has been part of the long-term plans when city officials launched plans for the ambitious fiber to the home program. Now that the system, seven months behind schedule, is finally close to launching, the timing is right to fill the position, Algiere said. It is a position primarily for Greenlight Communications, she explained, stressing she does not consider the position a public information officer. This person will be primarily responsible for getting content together for our local channel and providing information to the public. Certainly, providing information about city functions will be one role, but serving as an outreach to local agencies such as the county and school board will be one role as well as schools, businesses and the Chamber of Commerce. Boycott of utility gaining traction? Petitions being mailed out Rainbow Springs residents arent backing off their threat to boycott Greenlight Dunnellon Communications. One resident in particular has taken on the challenge of mailing 1,900-plus residents a petition to sign in support of a boycott unless the Dunnellon City Council rescinds the 25 percent charge its tacking onto customers water bills after the citys acquisition of Rainbow Springs Utility. Some residents, angered by the surcharge in which they feel is taxation without representation, voiced their support of a boycott of the citys much ballyhooed fiber to the home program, which is now seven months behind schedule and has spent more than $5 million of the $7.3 million in financing it secured with Regions Bank in Orlando in November 2010. Were a close-knit community, we should ban together and say were going to boycott Greenlight, resident Judy Larsen said, suggesting property owners obtain the Property Owners Associations (POA) permission to post signs on their property stating homeowners are boycotting the citys fiber program. Perhaps City Hall will get the hint. We can join together and make our case. One resident pointed out that if anyone attempted to go door-todoor pitching Greenlights services, they would be breaking the law in the community. According to the POAs covenant rules, no soliciCoordinator will work for Greenlight Communications JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See GURU page 3 JEFF BRYAN Riverland News Hog heaven Photos by JULIE MANCINI/For the Riverland NewsLizzy Wrights hog, Juniper, attempts to get a closer view of the camera lens as Wright tends to her hog in a pen in the backyard of her home. Wright has been raising hogs for the Southeastern Youth Fair for the past seven years. Wright gives her hog, Juniper, a snack while playing with her recently at her home. Wright follows path of sister, father in showing at fair Editors Note: The Southeastern Youth Fair will be Feb. 18 to 26 at the Southeastern Livestock Pavilion at 2232 N.E. Jacksonville Road, Ocala The high school rodeo will be Feb. 17 and 18. Leading up to the SEYF, the Riverland News will highlight youths participating in the event. How Elizabeth Wright got involved in the Southeastern Youth Fair is a case of monkey see, monkey do. Wright followed her older sisters, Samantha, footsteps. Samantha and Elizabeth are both second-generation youth fair participants. Their father, Craig also showed a steer during high school. Wright said its a little harder to raise a hog now that her sister isnt living at home. The two used to help each other with the care of the animals. Now, with the homework of advanced placement classes plus her athletic endeavors, Wright is finding she is rushing around and having trouble spending as much time working with her hog, which is kept in a pen behind her home. We shared the responsibilities, Wright said of taking care of the hogs. I fed them in the mornings, and at night it was her. We switched cleaning, but with her gone now its all me. My parents help when I have away games, but they leave it up to me mostly. Showing with my American Legion to recall heroic Four Chaplains The American Legion Post 58 will host its annual Four Chaplains Day Memorial Ceremony at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 5, at the American Legion Hall on U.S. 41, north of Walmart. In addition to the Four Chaplain Memorial Ceremony, the American Legion post will celebrate the 93nd birthday of the American Legion. The festival, open to the public and free of charge, will offer music, food and refreshments. According to history excerpts from Matt Grills, on Feb. 3, 1943, the U.S. Army Transport Dorchester a converted luxury liner was crossing the North Atlantic, transporting more than 900 troops to an American base in Greenland. Aboard the ship were four chaplains of different faiths: the Rev. George Fox (Methodist), Jewish Rabbi Alexander Goode, the Rev. Clark Poling (Dutch Reformed) and Father John Washington (Roman Catholic). Around 12:55 a.m., a German U-boat fired a torpedo that struck Dorchesters starboard side, below the water line and near the engine room. The explosion instantly killed 100 men and knocked out power and radio communication with Dorchesters three escort ships. Within 20 minutes, the transport sank and more than 670 Riverland News file photoBailey Decker, right, and Gracy Kolack, members of the Dunnellon High School Junior ROTC, participate in last years Four Chaplains Ceremony.

men died. As soldiers rushed to lifeboats, the four chaplains spread out, comforting the wounded and directing others to safety. One survivor, Pvt. William Bednar, later said, I could hear men crying, pleading, and praying. I could also hear the chaplains preaching courage. Their voices were the only thing that kept me going. Another survivor, John Ladd, watched the chaplains distribute life jackets, and when they ran out, they removed theirs and gave them to four young men. It was the finest thing I have seen, or hope to see, this side of heaven, he recalled. As Dorchester sank, the chaplains were seen linked arm in arm, praying. Fox, Goode, Poling and Washington were posthumously awarded the Distinguished Service Cross and the Purple Heart, and in 1948, Congress declared Feb. 3 to be Four Chaplains Day. The four chaplains were also honored with a U.S. postage stamp that year, according to history excerpts. tors are allowed in Rainbow Springs. Some residents suggested more than just a boycott of Greenlight by organizing their own movement Occupy Dunnellon in which they would picket City Hall. Residents questioned County Commissioner Kathy Bryant about what county officials can do in regards to the citys use of statute 180.012, which allows municipalities to tack on a 25 percent surcharge if it provides utility services. Bryant suggested she contact state lawmakers or the countys legislative delegation with their concerns. She also told those in attendance they could email her directly at kathy.bryant@ marioncountyfl.org and she would forward their concerns to the proper officials. According to the citys job description, it is seeking someone with plenty of experience to fill the newly-created position. Among three key requirements, applicants must have a bachelors degree in journalism, mass communications or public relations to name a few as well as at least 10 years of professional experience in the industry, particularly a person familiar with government reporting. This is a pretty independent position in which the person will have to be self-motivated, Algiere explained, noting the employee will report directly to her. Thats a key reason we are looking for someone with that much experience. The position was not budgeted for this fiscal year when the City Council adopted the Fiscal Year 2012-13 Budget in September. Algiere said the position will be funded with Greenlight money only and no money from general fund will be used to pay the employees salary and benefits. Its always been important to have this position, Algiere said. Its critical as we move forward and prepare to get started to prepare offering services.

River views Perhaps mayor should remember Golden Rule Re: Mayor lashes county Hmmm, just a random thought. Mayor Ward expresses his displeasure with the county regarding the Drainage Retention Area now being completed along County Road 484 by saying, Im not very happy about it, its atrocious ... We had nothing to say about it. We knew nothing about it ... Does this sound at all like comments which residents of Rainbow Springs have made about our displeasure with him and the City Council regarding the water/sewer issue? Remember the Golden Rule, Mr. Mayor: One should not treat others in ways that one would not like to be treated. Al Bulson Dunnellon A lesson in Hypocrisy 101 I didnt know whether to laugh, cry, or kill something when I saw the front page of this weeks Riverland News and the whining from the Dunnellon City Mayor about the DRA mandated by the County on Rte. 484. Among his comments were its criminal what they (the county) did. We dont like it, they ran roughshod over us. They didnt consider the impact on residents. Well boo, hoo, hoo Mayor Ward. Maybe this, in a small way, will help you understand the way residents of Rainbow Springs feel about your takeover of our water supply, over which we had no say either. Unlike us, however, your wallet will not be drained dry. I particularly enjoyed your own quoted words regarding the new lack of trees and privacy wherein you stated any fool can walk across there, I have done so. Yes, you have stated your abilities very well, along with your fellow cronies. The true increase in water rates for people without wells does not seem to have been published in the many letters on the subject. I have a 0.45-acre lot, which is pretty much average in Country Club Estates. I water according to the countys regulations and I also have a device that shuts off the sprinklers, during or after a rain. My average water bill last year, including sewer charges, was $98 per month. Under Dunnellons tiered system, I calculate that irrigation alone would have been $493 per month without the 25 percent surcharge. Needless to say, I am having a well installed at a cost of more than $4,000 that I can ill afford. I imagine its only a matter of time before a way is found to slap a meter on that and charge for well water, too. I urge all residents of Rainbow Springs to boycott Greenlight, which I dont believe will save any money once the teaser rates are over. In the most recent rates shown in the Jan. 26 paper, without knowing what is included in extended basic, the costs are already looking higher than my present suppliers. Sincerely,Stuart Bollen Rainbow Springs City will need more than a spokesperson to fix PR nightmares A week-filled bromance A ll the worrying about what I should wear, how do I look, and is the gray showing in my hair was for naught. We didnt have to worry about being on time or being late. It didnt matter that I was 10 pounds heavier than the last time he saw me. Once I set eyes on my brother, Dominic, walking down the ramp at the airport I instantly knew that. The homecoming was heartwarming. If Cecil B. DeMille had written the script it couldnt have been any better. My daughter, Mandy, rode with me to pick him up and as we grabbed hold of him and cried, Im sure many passer-bys wondered if hed just arrived back from Afghanistan. Maybe it had been decades since wed seen him? Actually it had been long, too long. In fact, it was the longest weve ever gone without seeing each other. Plus, to say my brother has had a rough year would be putting it mildly, so that made his homecoming even more special. Weve often had conversations about how strong and stoic our mother is. She never falls apart; shes always worrying about everybody else. But when she opened the front door in total surprise by the sight of her son, she fell apart and showed her vulnerable side. She grabbed hold of her first born and never wanted to let go. Dominic said that will remain one of the best moments of his life. To say that were a close family would be an understatement. Are we too close? Is there any such thing? Were a family that loves one another. Our hearts are happy when were all together. There is no judgment, malice or jealousy amongst us. Its the way all families should be. The week has been spent eating, catching up on all the news, but mostly laughing. A simple word or gesture can bring bouts of laughter. Were not a quiet family, so its never a giggle, but more like a bellow. Its contagious and before you know it everybody is laughing. Dominic has always been my hero and my mentor. Maybe he has faults, but I never see them. I would put my older brother in the same category with Tim Tebow or Dunnellons former police chief, Bob Jackson just a terrific allaround good guy. I hope youre lucky enough to meet him one day. Sure, we had our moments in high school when he wanted me to disappear and leave him and his friends alone. After all, he was a senior and I only a freshman, so I thought he was cool and he thought I was a pest. My goal was to follow him around and his goal was to make believe he didnt have a sister. But were best buds now and always there for each other. I can trust him with any secret and I hope he feels the same way. I know the week is going to fly by. Saying good-bye will be extremely hard. But at least we got a good, healthy dose of family time. We did everything we could this week to convince him that Florida is where he needs to be. Shoveling snow in the freezing cold of Iowa pales in comparison to standing on the banks of the Rainbow River on a sunsoaked day. Like everybody else, the hard economic times made his decision for him almost three years ago. However, he is a top notch sports editor so maybe he will soon have a calling to cover the mighty Dunnellon Tigers. In the meantime, we will phone, text and email. We will miss him like crazy.

Gov. Rick Scotts decision to close these state prisons was the wrong move at the wrong time and it is again taking our state in the wrong direction. Gov. Scott contends this order was about a declining crime rate, something many Republican and Democratic law enforcement officers, prosecutors and lawmakers, worked very hard to achieve. A major reason for the current decline in the crime rate is that Florida decided to put predators behind bars and keep them there, rather than allow a revolving door correctional system like we had during the 1980s, 1990s and early in this millennium. As a former state attorney and senator, Ive seen firsthand the families and communities in rural towns across Florida that will be bear the pain and consequences of Gov. Scotts extreme privatization agenda. Many of the correctional facilities slated for closure are the largest employers in these communities and the governors plan would prove devastating shattering entire economies and forcing families to sell their land and uproot their lives. Most importantly, the state will put more prisoners in fewer facilities, returning to the days when we minimized the officer population in a way that made prisons less safe for inmates and correctional officers. The net result will put Floridas hardworking officers in greater danger and unjustly award political contributors with the taxpayers money. But do not be misled. The real reason for these prison closures as well as the governors move toward privatization which would have already privatized 29 south Florida prisons had the courts not ruled it unlawful is to award taxpayer dollars to a big political contributor. Florida Democrats believe in transparency. We believe that people are more important than corporations; that middle-class families who work hard and play by the rules shouldnt suffer so that political contributors can pad their pockets. Its time someone spoke out against these special interests and spoke up for Florida families. Rod Smith, of Gainesville, is a former state attorney and senator. He currently serves as chairman of the Florida Democratic Party. Closing correctional facilities would hurt communities W e could only chuckle when we spotted the citys latest job opening in the classified section of last weeks edition of the Riverland News: The city is seeking to hire a communications and program coordinator; a person who graduated from an accredited four-year college or university with a degree in mass communications, journalism, public relations, etc. Said applicant also must have 10 years of experience, preferably in government reporting. The pay range is between $36,063 and $54,084. If you read between the lines, the city is seeking an employee who can put a positive spin on the current public relations nightmares officials have created, and perhaps future fiascos they might find themselves in. Its amusing for a city, especially with 1,800 residential and business taxpayers, needing to hire an employee for such a position. First things first, where are the funds coming from to hire said employee? During the budgeting process last fall, no such position had been created and money had not been set aside. The city is likely going to feel a financial pinch from the state, which just recently announced its staring down the barrel of a $2 billion budget shortfall. If the state has to start cutting funding to counties and cities statewide, you can bet officials here will have to find innovative ways to make up for that shortfall. Has the public relations mess created with the installation of red-light cameras, the multi-million dollar Greenlight Communications project and, most recently, the purchase of Rainbow Springs Utility really spurred such a need? Maybe so, but theres a simple solution to fixing these problems and its not hiring a person whos job is put a positive spin on the aforementioned items. The city simply needs to speak the truth, earn public trust as well as public buy-in. Simply, this move wont solve the problems officials have created. Frankly, a magician might be better suited in this case, because its going to take a magic act to make the financial mistakes the Council has created disappear.

Shoe is now on the other foot In the Jan. 26, 2012, issue of the Rivlerand News Mayor (Fred) Ward says in regards to the DRA on County Road 484: Its criminal what they did. We dont like it. They ran roughshod over us. They didnt consider the impact of the residents. Vice Mayor Fred Stark says: They came in here and played games with us. Their statements reflect how the residents of Rainbow Springs feel about the city of Dunnellon purchasing our Rainbow Springs Utilities. Joan K. Duggins Dunnellon City ran roughshod over Rainbow SpringsThank you Mayor (Fred) Ward for giving me words to express how the residents of Rainbow Springs feel about the recent utility purchase for $6.5 million by the city. I refer to the front page article in the Jan. 26 edition of the Riverland News. Here are some quotes attributed to Mayor Ward: Quote No. 1 I am not very happy about it, its atrocious. I felt the same way standing outside the City Council meeting while the city decided to purchase a private utility and raise our rates to generate revenue. Quote No. 2 We had nothing to say about it. We knew nothing about it. I dont have to be happy with the results. Mayor, I feel your pain. Rainbow Springs will feel the pain of the city management decision every month we pay our water bill. Quote No. 3 It is criminal what they did. We dont like it. They ran roughshod over us. They didnt consider the impact of residents. Mayor if you are this upset with the impact of a few trees with no financial loss to anyone, can you comprehend how Rainbow Springs residents feel? I am not talented enough to come up with a statement to summarize how Rainbow Springs residents feel like your statement did. Thank you for the verbalization of our frustration and sense of no respect or representation by the city commission. Quote No. 4 There was no consideration to the people around it. Well, we know that the Rainbow Springs residents were considered before the city voted to buy the private utility. We were considered as an unrepresented, nonvoting and easy available source of revenue that had no recourse. The city did it because they could. I now consider Dunnellon, not as a nice little town I supported, but as a business that provides me a utility service for a substantial profit. I will treat Dunnellon like any other private business and do what is best in my interest. Theres not much civic pride left here for Dunnellon. So thank you mayor for giving me words that really sum up how we feel. The county did it really this upset you more than Greenlight fiasco and utility debacle? because they could. At least the city suffered no financial loss. Its a good thing because I think the city credit line is all used up. As I walk around Rainbow Springs and see all the useless Greenlight hook up boxes I think the boycott will be effective, plus the rates certainly are not competitive, I will remember your best quote in my humble opinion: They ran roughshod over us. The city certainly did to Rainbow Springs residents. Steve Swett Dunnellon Mayor should know how Rainbow Springs residents feelAs we read the Riverland News Jan. 26, we couldnt help thinking, Mr. Mayor, now you know how the residents of Rainbow Springs feel regarding the article titled Mayor lashes county. We started substituting Dunnellon for county and Rainbow Springs for mayor. For instance, the article could be titled Rainbow Springs lashes Dunnellon. To go on with some of the comments: Im not very happy about it, its atrocious. We had nothing to say about it. We knew nothing about it. I dont have to be happy or happy with the results. Gee, sounds like someone in Rainbow Springs talking about Dunnellon. And theres more: Its criminal what they did. We dont like it. They ran roughshod over us. They didnt consider the impact on the residents. There was no consideration to the people. Well, Mr. Mayor, the residents of Rainbow Springs dont have any sympathy for you and our only hope is maybe now you can begin to appreciate and rethink what you and the City Council have done to us. Robert and Ann Carter Rainbow Springs Shoes on the other foot, part IIWe had nothing to say about it. We knew nothing about it. Im not very happy about it. Its atrocious. Its criminal what they did. They ran roughshod over us. I dont have to be happy or happy with the results. We can make them mitigate the problem or at least find a resolution. They didnt consider the impact on residents. They came in here and played games with us. There was no consideration to the people around it. Comments from Rainbow Springs residents about the City of Dunnellons takeover of their water and sewer plant? No, it is comments from Dunnellons mayor and vice-mayor about Marion Countys Drainage Retention Area (DRA) along County Road 484. Especially interesting was Mayor Wards response to Councilman Evans observation that any property owner has the right to do what it wants with its property: That doesnt hold water. Oh really, Mr. Mayor? Funny how Dunnellon officials dont like being treated exactly the same way theyve treated Rainbow Springs residents. Perhaps the mayor and vice-mayor should attend a public meeting of the Board of County Commissioners, so they can be escorted outside and told that they should cease and desist.

D ahlias are a tried and tested favorite in European gardens. Since being in Florida, we have successfully grown these plants producing great splashes of color, which range from white to multicolored. Foliage can be green, but some now have a wonderful bronze leaf. The plants can certainly be grown here as annuals, but with a little care can become a useful perennial. Tubers can be stored and split if dug in late fall once the plant has died back. Its a great way to get extra plants! Cuttings can be done. Tubers can be bought in stores, and garden centers, or on the Internet, but the plants can be grown from seed. Sown now in the greenhouse, dahlia seeds will produce young plants ready to plant outdoors to flower this year. Seed companies sell a range of quick-growing bedding strains suitable for growing this way. You can also use this method for sowing seeds saved from your own dahlia plants at the end of the previous season. If you did not save seeds from last year, then allow a few heads to set seed at the end of the flowering season this year, and harvest to keep. Fill a pot or seed tray with moist multi-purpose compost and lightly firm the surface. Sow dahlia seeds on the surface and push them gently into the compost. Dont forget to label your seeds! Cover pots with an inflated clear polythene bag, held in place with a rubber band. If sown in seed trays, cover with a propagator lid. The seedlings are ready to pot up singly when the second pair of leaves appear. By mid-March the young plants will be ready to go outside. Harden them off for a week by standing them outdoors during the day and bringing them indoors at night. They can then be planted out in their flowering positions in the garden once the chance of late frosts have gone. As the plants mature in the summer, some staking may be required as the taller varieties can become leggy and require support. Tracy Jenner, the Riverland Gardener, can be reached at tracyjenner@aol.com. sister was a good thing for us, we pushed each other saying my pig is better than yours and I'm going to do better, but it wasn't a rivalry. It was us helping the other want to do and be better. We always cheered for each other and we were there when the other needed them. I miss having her to compete against. I feel if she was still in FFA I would push myself harder and be more focused, but now its more mental without her. Taking care of a hog isnt the lone challenge, so is selecting the right hog, explained Wright, a junior at Dunnellon High School. For each person, its different. I personally like girls and for them to be long and have a good body structure, said Wright, who will show her hog Juniper at this years SEYF. And, of course, a big butt. Throughout her seven years showing a hog, shes had her share of successes and a bit of failure. During her fifth-grade year, she placed fifth in her class. As an eighth-grader, she placed first. However, several years ago, her hog didnt make weight. It was a tough lesson to learn, she said. However, there was a silver lining. The year mine didn't make it, my dad just paid me and we had it butchered, so I still made a profit, she explained. And the family got bacon. I kept telling myself I had three more years to show, but I missed showing and the sale, it wasn't the same just watching. When its time to show, Wright knows exactly the thoughts that go through her head. Wheres my pig? Wheres the judge? I think, my pig, the judge, my smile, she said, knowing that smiling and appearing to be in control of the situation is a good way to impress the judges. Win or lose, Wright said, she simply looks forward to the fair itself. She loves to hang out with her friends, meet new people and reconnect with people she doesnt see often. I enjoy all the people, said Wright. And the ice cream, the homemade ice cream. Wright is hoping for the best, but if this isnt her year for a ribbon, shes not worried. She still has one more year. It all depends on the judge and what he likes in a hog, Wright said. Its not all about winning, and Ive had my share of years without placing. Its about having fun. Placing would make it just a little better!

MAGICAL ADVENTURE: DES students scavenge through Disney A class project added a touch of Disney magic for Dunnellon Elementary School fourthgraders and a small group of fifth-graders. Dunnellon Elementary fourthgraders, along with Laura Gilligans fifth-grade class took a field trip Jan. 26 to meet Ridley Pearson at Walt Disney World, the author of the book series titled Kingdom Keepers. The students have been reading the books in this series throughout the course of the school year. According to Denise Prinz, fourthgrade teacher, one of the highlights of the day was the students going backstage at Hollywood Studios to meet Pearson in person. Overall, three large charter buses pulled out of Dunnellon Elementary at approximately 7:40 a.m. carrying 130 students to Orlando for a day of adventures. Along with those students, attending this trip were nine school chaperones, 12 parents, eight Dunnellon High School students, who are a part of the Tiger to Cub Program, and Morgan Luckey, Tiger to Cub sponsor. After their backstage tour at Universal Hollywood Studios, the students were taken to Walt Disney Worlds Magic Kingdom. All of the students participated in a huge scavenger hunt around the theme park led by various Disneys characters. This was done to model the books of the series where the teens took part in a scavenger hunt in order to save Disney. During this hunt, the students were given clues and riddles that involved Language Arts and Math skills. The answers to the riddles allowed them to obtain access to the rides and complete their quest at Cinderellas Castle. The best part of this trip was seeing the looks on the kids faces while they were having so much fun, said Prinz, noting she hopes its something she can continue in the coming years. I also enjoyed that it got those students who dont normally like to read involved in the books. CAITLYN DUNNING For the Riverland News School district accepting out-of-area requests Parents wishing to enroll their students in public schools outside their zoned attendance areas must apply for student reassignment for the 2012-2013 school year by Friday, April 13. Late applications are not eligible and will not be accepted. Applications may be picked up at any public school guidance office or at the Marion County Public Schools District Office, 512 S.E. Third St., Ocala. Most requests will not be processed until this summer.

All participants in the Kids Fun Beasley announces changes to coaching staff The winds of change are blowing through the Dunnellon High School football program. Aaron Richardson, the Tigers offensive coordinator the past four seasons, announced his resignation last week, said Dunnellon coach Frank Beasley, who completed his seventh season at the helm of the program last fall. Richardson had been on Beasleys staff throughout his tenure. Prior to becoming the offensive coordinator, Richard had served as the defensive coordinator until Beasley and he switched positions four years ago. During his time calling offensive plays, the Tigers offense average 28 points per game. Hes got his name out there for a couple of head coaching positions, Beasley said, noting hes applied for openings at Chiefland and Bronson. We talked over Christmas break about it and he didnt want to leave us in a position in which it was already spring and wed have to search for a new offensive coordinator. Im not sure where hes going to end up, but I know whoever gets him will have a great person and a great coach leading them. Beasley didnt have to search far for his next offensive coordinator, promoting long-time offensive line coach Tommy Sutton, a Dunnellon High graduate. He has a vast amount of knowledge, Beasley said of Sutton. He understands our system, knows the kids and I believe will be great. Hes a perfectionist. Sutton said hes looking forward to the challenge. Im excited, he explained. Leone preps for amateur title fight Bout Saturday in Ocala Tony Leone is getting his much-desired shot at an amateur championship. The 2009 Dunnellon High School graduate will get his opportunity Saturday night at the Ocala Entertainment Complex when Leone squares off against Tampa Bays Billy Quarantillo in a 160-pound bout. For Leone, itll mark his fifth amateur match in the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighting. Win, lose or draw against Quarantillo, Leone said his immediate plans dont include turning pro after the match. If I win the belt, my coach would like me to defend it at least once, Leone, who sports a 4-0 mark, said. After that, well figure out what the future holds, maybe another fight after that. Obviously, if I lose, Im doing something wrong; my skill level isnt where it should be. I shouldnt be losing as an amateur. But at the same time, Im not in a hurry to go pro. Whenever my coach thinks Im ready, well explore that as an option. Were right there; were knocking on the door. This is going to be a big year. Future ambitions aside, Leone will have his work cut out for him against Quarantillo. Nicole Drew, Softball Drew pitched three good innings and lead the Red team in hitting in the Red/Black game Friday. She is working hard on earning the No. 1 pitcher spot for are spring season, Dunnellon coach Clay Thompson said. Denzel Thomas, Boys Basketball Thomas didnt have a stellar scoring week, Dunnellon coach Eric Hayes noted. However, he played very well defensively. He averaged seven rebounds for two games and did a stellar job containg one of Crystal River's top scorers, Hayes said. Denzel Thomas Nicole Drew DUNNELLON HIGH ATHLETES OF THE WEEK PRESENTED BY RAINBOWS END GOLF COURSE Richardson resigns as offensive coordinator; Sutton promoted JEFF BRYAN Riverland News JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsDunnellon tennis player Tia Love works on her forehand during a recent practice. Love is expected to compete for the third or fourth seed this season. Lady Tigers ready to charge the net Expectations are at a high for the Dunnellon High School girls tennis team, as the season opener rapidly approaches. This years team is the largest it has been in at least three years, filling each of the eight spots, and experience should play a factor in how the season unfolds. If everybody tries hard and comes to the practices I think this season will go well and I look forward to it, said Dunnellon coach Ray Dunlea, whose team opens the season Feb. 7 against Forest High School. Five experienced players and three novices, with the odds on their side, will round out the roster. The top players this season are Alex Love, who has excelled the past three years, and Jade Gardner, who transferred from Chanute, Kan., at the start of the school year. Among the other returns include: Tia Love, Victoria Atkinson and Madeline Tourne. Alex Love, a senior, was the No. 2 player for the Lady Tigers last season. She has played for the See BEASLEY page 11 JEFF BRYAN Riverland News See LEONE page 11 RACHEL HORNE For the Riverland News Dunnellon kicks off season Feb. 7 against Forest See NET page 11 Tony Leone After a stellar six years of a Fagan being a part of the Dunnellon High School softball team, that era has finally come to an end and a new era has began. Kasey and Samantha Fagan are now living the college life at the University of Florida, and playing for the Gators. Kevin Fagan, the former coach, who led the team for back-to-back state championships and a national title in 2010, decided its time to move on from coaching high school softball. And Haley Fagan unfortunately hurt her knee during flag football, putting her out for the season. Since Kevin Fagan and assistant coach Sue Williams decided it was time to step down, people have been wondering who is going to fulfill the shoes. Clay Thompson decided he wanted to take on the role of head coach. His daughter, Alora, has played for Fagan the past three years, and now gets to play her senior year for her dad. His other daughter, Cierra, a sophomore, also gets the chance to play for him. I decided that I would take the lead role after last year when coach Fagan decided he wanted to step down, Clay Thompson explained. I have coached with high school for four years, two as the JV head coach and two as an assistant. Now that Thompson has decided to take the role of head coach, he needed to assemble his staff. He didnt have to look far, choosing Chris Winn to serve as an assistant. Winn helped last year, performing a couple of drills, knowing what had to be done.

past three years and was on Ocalas 2010 All-Conference\All-Academic list. Alex Love is expected to be one of the top two players for Dunnellon this season. Im really excited for this tennis season, she said. We have all been working very hard this year. We have a really great group of coaches that have enabled us to compete with girls that have been playing for years. Tia Love, Alexs cousin, is a junior who, by the end of last season, regularly played in the third or fourth slot for the Lady Tigers. Victoria Atkinson, another junior returner, should challenge Tia Love for the third or fourth slot on the team. Senior Madeline Tourne is back on the team after missing her junior season. She played as a freshmen and sophomore, having been the fourth seed her sophomore year. Among the newcomers to the Lady Tigers this season are April Hargabus, Danielle Prinz, Rachel Horne and Gardner, who certainly gives Dunnellon a boost this season. While the junior transfer might be new to Dunnellon, she is certainly no stranger to tennis. Gardener competed at Chanute (Kan.) High School, where she played in the Independence Invitational and competed in the Kansas Class 4A State Championships in doubles competition. She is expected to compete against Alex Love for the top seed. Weve got a lot to do before May 1, but by then, I want to hit the ground running. I want to build on what coach Beasley and coach Richardson has done in the past few years. Theyve taken the program to a level that it hadnt seen in a while. Its going to be a hightempo offense; were going to put the pressure on the defense. Were going to cut it loose. I want to allow the athletes to make plays. Were still going to be an efficient, physical running team with a great passing game. Beasley also announced Chad Smith will join the coaching staff as the quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator, pending board approval. He is likely to join the staff at Dunnellon High beginning Monday, Feb. 13. Smith had been a student assistant on the University of Arkansas staff the past four years, working directly with the offense. Were going to change the look of our passing game, Beasley said. Were going to change the whole scheme. We really want quicker, high-percentage throws. Those arent the only changes coming, Beasley said. Known for its powerrunning game throughout his tenure, the Tigers will switch to a Spread Power Pistol Offense in which the quarterback runs the offense from the shotgun while one running back lines up directly behind the signal caller. Our core values havent changed, Beasley said. The window dressing is changing. Weve been engaged to this offense, now were just going to marry it. Beasley smiled while talking about the change in offenses, explaining for the Tigers to compete against the likes of high-powered offenses such as North Marion, Nature Coast, Williston, the staff felt it was necessary to make the switch. We wanted more balance, Beasley said of explaining the changes in offense. Were really good at slowing things down, but when we needed to speed them up, we struggled. Were going to have a nice up-tempo offense. Our core values are the same. Were still going to be disciplined and run the ball; weve just got to move it quicker when needed. With the addition of Smith and the changes in offense, Beasley said the team will rely much more on quarterback Jordon Boley, the teams signal caller this past season. Were really looking for great things from Jordan next year, Beasley said. Hes really going to be the focal point of the offense. Were going to allow him to run and move around more than we did this past year.

Leone describes his opponent as a pretty tough guy who knows jujitsu very well. Hes slick, he has slick skills, said Leone, who hasnt fought since Nov. 26, beating Andrew Tammayo by decision. Im not really nervous, but if Im not cautious, if Im not up to par, if I get out of position, he has a chance to tap me out. Ive seen some footage of him, hes very skilled. His last opponent, he chocked him out. Leone explained hell have to be very sound technically against Quarantillo. Hes bigger than me, Leone said, explaining his foe usually competes in the 170-pound division. I think I have better wrestling than him, and I think Im faster than him and hit harder than him. Leone said it will be important for him to come out controlled in the fight. I think Im a good match up for anybody, but I am going to be a little bit more controlled, more of a tactician than a brawler, he said. Each fight, Im trying to find a happy medium, trying to find that middle ground where I can use both equally. I dont want to sit back and be too cautious, but Im a high-paced, fastpaced fighter. I want to keep him on his toes, keep him running. But I want to be able to take my shots, give him some nice one, twos. Im going for a knock out.

Their first regular season game, however, will be Feb. 7 at Belleview High School. The junior varsity plays at 5 p.m., followed by the varsity at 7:30.

I am rather old-fashioned in some areas of my life, which I do not intend to upgrade to current standards. I do not believe in changing something unless it really needs to be changed. A crazy phobia is going around these days suggesting that if something is old, it must not be any good and if it is new, it must be good. I think old Solomon was right when he said, there is no new thing under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9 KJV). So, I am never intimidated by some new gizmo or gadget that comes down the line. One of the things I have no intention of upgrading is in the area of giving credit. I believe in giving credit where credit is due. After all, I need all the credit I can get these days. If somebody does something that blesses me, I am beholden to give them their due credit. I am under the opinion that if I give enough people enough credit that one day I just may be able to cash in. This all came to me this past week when I had my visit to the dentist. I make it a rule that once a decade to visit my dentist whether I need to or not. The thing that spurred my visit to the dentist this time was one of my fillings had fallen out. Actually, I am assuming it fell out because where it used to be was a hole in my tooth.

This dental hygienic situation brought me to my latest visit with my dental hygienist. While I was there, I thought I would save time, if not money, and have my teeth cleaned. Every decade I like to have my teeth cleaned. According to my dentists records, the last time I had my teeth cleaned was 13 years ago. So, it is time. Because it was so long since my last visit with the dentist, he insisted on taking pictures of all my teeth. I hope to get copies so I can post it on my Facebook. After all, what would my Facebook be without pictures of teeth? I had forgotten the whole procedure of dental photography. It took an entire hour to photograph all my teeth one at a time. During the sixty minutes of my photography shoot, I had to keep my mouth open. I have never had my mouth open for so long in all my life. After this, I have a new appreciation for women. How they keep their mouth open for so long is one of those mysteries husbands will never be able to unravel. The upshot of my visit with the dentist was I had a clean bill of health regarding my teeth and gums. I must have been doing something right to have such healthy teeth and gums for a person my age. When the dentist said a person my age, I was not sure if he was insulting me or congratulating me for good health. Being the gentleman that I am, I took the latter. I dont know what youre doing, the dentist said cheerfully as I left his office, just keep it up. With that, I left the dentist office. I thought a lot about what he said and I have come to a major conclusion. I like giving credit where credit is due, so I had to think long and hard about whom to credit for my good dental health. Certainly, I could congratulate the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage on her superb dietary work in the kitchen. Without doubt, it pays to eat the right food if you are going to have good health. But I think it goes much further than this. What am I doing to credit such a good dental health report? Then it came to me. Have you ever given serious thought about something for so long, you seem to be getting nowhere, and then all of a sudden, it hits you? I know what I can credit my excellent dental health. Apple Fritters. That is right. The reason I have good teeth and good gums is because of a consistent diet of Apple Fritters. After all, everybody knows the main ingredient of an Apple Fritter is an Apple. There is nothing better for a person than an Apple. Where the Fritter comes in is very simple. The Fritter part of an Apple Fritter is the means by which my body can assimilate the nutritional aspects of the Apple. The Fritter facilitates the good parts of the Apple to every part of my body. Therefore, with a deep sense of humility and gratefulness, I credit my dental health to the regular consumption of Apple Fritters. A friend of mine recently suggested that I might be addicted to Apple Fritters, but I kindly remonstrated him by explaining I am addicted to good dental health. My spiritual health is a different matter. Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and for ever. Amen (Jude 1:24-25 KJV). God gets all the credit in my life for my spiritual health now and forever.The Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.
