Reporting persons that are entities are also requested to furnish their I.R.S. identification numbers, although disclosure of such numbers is voluntary, not mandatory (see “SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLYING WITH SCHEDULE 13D” below).


(2) If any of the shares beneficially owned by a reporting person are held as a member of a group and the membership is expressly affirmed, please check row 2(a). If the reporting person disclaims membership in a group or describes a relationship with other persons but does not affirm the existence of a group, please check row 2(b) [unless it is a joint filing pursuant to Rule 13d-1(k)(1) in which case it may not be necessary to check row 2(b)].

Attach as many copies of the second part of the cover page as are needed, one reporting person per page.

Filing persons may, in order to avoid unnecessary duplication, answer items on the schedules (Schedule 13D, 13G or 14D-1) by appropriate cross references to an item or items on the cover page(s). This approach may only be used where the cover page item or items provide all the disclosure required by the schedule item. Moreover, such a use of a cover page item will result in the item becoming a part of the schedule and accordingly being considered as “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section of the Act.

Reporting persons may comply with their cover page filing requirements by filing either completed copies of the blank forms available from the Commission, printed or typed facsimiles, or computer printed facsimiles, provided the documents filed have identical formats to the forms prescribed in the Commission’s regulations and meet existing Securities Exchange Act rules as to such matters as clarity and size (Securities Exchange Act Rule 12b-12).




Under Sections 13(d) and 23 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the rules and regulations thereunder, the Commission is authorized to solicit the information required to be supplied by this schedule by certain security holders of certain issuers.

Disclosure of the information specified in this schedule is mandatory, except for I.R.S. identification numbers, disclosure of which is voluntary. The information will be used for the primary purpose of determining and disclosing the holdings of certain beneficial owners of certain equity securities. This statement will be made a matter of public record. Therefore, any information given will be available for inspection by any member of the public.

Because of the public nature of the information, the Commission can utilize it for a variety of purposes, including referral to other governmental authorities or securities self-regulatory organizations for investigatory purposes or in connection with litigation involving the Federal securities laws or other civil, criminal or regulatory statutes or provisions. I.R.S. identification numbers, if furnished, will assist the Commission in identifying security holders and, therefore, in promptly processing statements of beneficial ownership of securities.

Failure to disclose the information requested by this schedule, except for I.R.S. identification numbers, may result in civil or criminal action against the persons involved for violation of the Federal securities laws and rules promulgated thereunder.

Item 8. Submission of Shareholders Proposals for 2018 Proxy Statement

In accordance with Rule 14a-8 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, I hereby submit for presentation at the 2018 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “Meeting”) of Avalon Holdings Corporation (the “Company”) and inclusion in the proxy materials (i.e., the notice of meeting, proxy statement and proxy card) relating to the Meeting the following proposal and supporting statement:

Election of Class A Director Anil Choudary Nalluri, M.D. ABPN:

Enclosed is my resume

“RESOLVED: That the shareholders of Avalon Holdings Corporation (the “Company”) authorize and direct the Company’s Board of Directors to retain an investment bank to solicit offers for the purchase of the Company’s stock or assets, and that the Board of Directors, within 120 days from the date of the approval of this resolution is directed to present the highest cash offer to purchase the Company’s stock or assets to the shareholders for their acceptance or rejection of such offer.”



Supporting Statement:

“According to the publicly filed documents on December 31, 1998, the Company and cash equivalent of $22,274,000, equal to approximately $5.85 per share.”

Mr. Klingle and the board of directors have not provided and lack visibility of providing a return justifying the use of $130 million dollars and borrowing an approximate additional $30 million dollars at 6 percent interest. Corporate board members to whom I have spoken have stringent rates of return requirements for the approval of cash and cash investments. Judging from the results of the investment of $130 million dollars in golf club renovations and the hotel, this investment is wasted because the corporation has been losing money every year.

I am the one and only shareholder who has attended all meetings with exception of 1 or 2. Mr. Kringle has repeatedly touted that he is making intelligent decisions contrary to that, I would say Mr. Kringle is doing the opposite evidence by the stock has plummeted from $8 a share to $2 per share since April 30, 1998 to present. This is a clear evidence of Mr. Kringle’s incompetency to run the board. Not only Mr. Kringle but the entire board is incompetent. Mr. Kringle should be ashamed of himself and resign immediately. I also believe a new CEO should be hired. If Mr. Kringle could have made rational decisions like Amazon, Apple Computer, and Tesla Motors the stock should have sky rocketed from $8 a share to a much greater value.

If you invest approximately $130 million dollars in the bank your return on that savings would amount to approximately $5 million dollars per year.

However instead of Avalon Holdings Corporation making $5 million in interest per year, the shareholders are losing approximately $8 million per year.

Allocation of capital by the company, the company’s board of directors has been very disappointing. We believe it is essential that the board of directors focus its attention on maximizing shareholder value in order to preserve the diminished value that remains.

We believe this can be accomplished with the assistance of an investment bank retained by the company to solicit offers on behalf of the company for the purchase of the company’s stock and/or assets. The highest cash offer would then be presented to the company’s shareholders for their acceptance or rejection.

This proposal does not mandate the sale of the company but proposes a reasonable process to determine the true market value of the company and to give the shareholders the opportunity to determine the future course of the company. Strong support for this proposal would send a signal to the board of directors that shareholders are dissatisfied with its performance.

In my opinion the board of directors are rubberstamping Mr. Klingle’s proposals. It seems to me like this is the blind leading the blind. Mr. Klingle is guarding the Avalon Holdings Corporation since its inception from 4-30-1998 to date for 17 years like a fox guarding a hen house.

We urge you to vote FOR this proposal.

The entire fire sale liquidation value of Avalon Holdings Corporation 3.8 million shares is only $8 million dollars on the open stock market today. The stock is highly ill-liquid.

The outside Class A shareholders are losing money daily and the board of directors to include the CEO and the accountants are the only ones profiting from this venture.

The salaries and bonuses of any and all executive officers skyrocket, however, every year for doing such a terrible job. In my opinion you and your executive board do not deserve any bonuses, evidenced by the fact that in 17 years the stock value of Avalon Holdings has grossly plummeted from $8 a share to $2.00 trading range for the past 2-3 years. The book value of the stock price is $10.19. How can you justify the stock being sold for  1/4-1/5 of the book value? I strongly recommend that all of your salaries must be frozen until you show profit and increase the shareholder value.

How can you justify the losses year after year for over 17 years? You have lost more money in the golf for the past 16-17 years. You never lost money in the garbage business.

You are making money in the garbage business and borrowing more money and you wasted $130 million dollars in the golf related and hotel business.

The above is clear indication of your lack of due diligence, dereliction of fiduciary duty, and pure incompetence. In fact it is my opinion that you and the rest of the board should reevaluate your roles, which is why I am running for the Class A director because I could certainly do no worse and undoubtedly do a better job of investing the shareholders money.



None of you asked an independent agency to evaluate whether investing $40 million dollars in the Avalon Hotel in a depressed, poor Mahoning and Trumbull counties was a lucrative endeavor. We are not in Florida, South Carolina, Las Vegas or anywhere in California where these types of luxury hotels are found.

For Proxy Card:

“1. Authorize and direct Board of Directors to retain an investment bank to solicit offers for the Company’s stock or assets and to present highest cash offer to shareholders within 120 days.


FOR [    ]   AGAINST [    ]   ABSTAIN [    ]”

I currently own 719,234 shares of Common A stock of Avalon Holdings Corporation, which presently has a market value of $1,438,468 at the market price of $2.00 now.

I have included with this submission a letter from E-Trade Securities Corporation verifying that I own more than 20,000 shares as of the date of submission and that I have continuously held the shares for the past 17 years.

I intend to continue to hold these shares through the date of the Meeting. I either personally or through a representative also intends to attend the Meeting and present the proposal in this submission in accordance with Ohio law.

I am sending this submission via Priority US Mail and will retain proof of delivery and I will also fax a copy to 330-856-8480 which will be no later than November 27, 2017.
