From POW

to Pine Run:

soldier and

his bride

Couple wed 64 years
married in Germany
JIM CLARK
Editor
A little more than 64 years ago
on a volleyball court in Darmstadt,
West Germany, fate brought to-
gether an American soldier barely
out of high school and a young Pol-
ish woman who had been a pris-
oner of war of the Germans.
This week, on April 22, the Pine
Run couple, Raymond and Jean
Kukla, marked their 64th wedding
anniversary, telling their story of
love that went all the way from
war-torn Europe to the town of
Bay City, Mich., and then on to De-
troit and eventually Ocala.
They didn't travel to the U.S. to-
gether after being wed in Ger-
many, since he was still on active
duty and she was helped by the
Red Cross and sent to the U.S. on a
"victory ship." But when they
were reunited in Bay City, accord-
ing to Raymond, it was in the mid-
dle of a busy street and they
"stopped traffic."
Raymond's pre-war background
was pretty standard. He went to
high school, then shortly after-

Civic Theatre plans special concert


Who knew? When a group of
twenty-somethings got together in
1950 and decided that it was time
Ocala had its own theatre group,
who knew the group would be still
going strong 60 years later? Up
until the formation of The Marion
Players (who changed their name
to Ocala Civic Theatre in the
1970s), Ocala and Marion County
were served by traveling troupes
that would make a circuit of small
towns, stopping in each one for
only a day or two.


To celebrate the theatre's 60th
anniversary, a special concert ti-
tled "So This Is Love" has been
created featuring music popular
in 1950. The title comes from Walt
Disney's animated film "Cin-
derella," which was released in
1950. The concert will include
popular favorites, such as "Ten-
nessee Waltz," "Mona Lisa," 'A
Dream Is A Wish Your Heart
Makes," "La Vie En Rose," "Sis-
ters," plus many more including
hits from Broadway productions of


the era including South Pacific
and Guys & Dolls. Audiences will
recognize some of their favorite
performers on stage including
Heather Gifford, Jessica Monge-
rio, Marcy Rhodes-Butler, Melody
Murphy, Becca Ashley, Bruce Clay-
ton, Jeff Sensat, Patrick Stanley,
and Scotty Roberts. A special
guest appearance will be made by
one of the founding members of
the theatre group, Rosemary

POW
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1


ward joined the military He
studied anti-aircraft protection
before being sent to Europe in
1945. He was in the 7th Army and
reached the rank of sergeant.
It was then that he was as-
signed to a camp where the Pol-
ish women were brought, and
that led to a meeting at a volley-
ball game.
Jean's background was any-
thing but routine. In fact, it was a
lot more harrowing. She was in
the Polish Underground as a
teenager, taking orders from a
government in exile in Britain to
fight the Germans. Eventually
the Russians got involved, and
the Underground had to give up
its fight, and she was taken to a
German POW camp.
She described the "wild day"
when they were liberated by
American forces. There were
three tanks that went back and
forth on a road near the camp,
and finally she and her friends


decided to find out who they be-
longed to. It turned out to be
Americans.
The girls were given a choice
of staying in Germany and maybe
returning to their homes. Only
three of the 25 took that option,
as the others went to the Ameri-
can zone.
They were sent to various
camps, and it was in Darmstadt
in July 1945 that she was playing
volleyball when she met a young
American.
The rest is history
It was after a Thanksgiving
dinner in 1945, a concept that
was not all that familiar to Jean,
when Raymond asked her to
marry him. She had mixed feel-
ings because she still had family
in Germany, but got advice from
another woman and agreed to
the wedding.
Still, the military was involved.
At that time soldiers had to get
permission to marry a foreign


girl, and that OK had to come
from the highest level. It eventu-
ally came for them, but then they
had to wait 60 more days, forcing
Raymond to extend his tour of
duty a couple of times, 3 months
each.
In those days, when soldiers
accumulated enough "points" in-
volving service time and the type
of action seen, they were cleared
to go home. But he stayed and
waited.
Eventually they got married
twice, once in a German official
capacity on April 14, but then in a
Catholic facility on April 22, the
day after Easter, since the cere-
mony couldn't be performed dur-
ing Lent.
She got back to Bay City before
him and lived with her in-laws
while he made his way back
home. The family gave her a
bridal shower, but she and her
mother-in-law went into town to
return some gifts. Raymond


picked that time to arrive to a
locked house. "He knew how to
get in through the kitchen win-
dow," laughed Jean.
A neighbor told him where
they had gone, and he took a bus
into town, which dropped him off
on one side of a busy street,
where he spotted his bride on
the other side. "We met in the
middle of the street. We stopped
traffic," he said.
After that, Raymond had to
find a job. "It was tough, very
tough," he commented.
"I worked with my uncle, we
did house remodeling for a
while, and after that my brother
got me into machine base type of
place."
While working there, he in-
jured both thumbs while cutting
material up to a half-inch thick
which bounced and caught his
thumbs. "I couldn't do anything
for a long time until they
healed."


He said that in high school he
was "pretty good at drafting," so
he took some night classes to get
his experience back Later he got
into mechanical drafting and
later into electrical diagrams.
Meanwhile, Jean, who had
some basic nursing training in
Poland, went to Sinai Hospital
nursing school in Detroit and
graduated from there.
Eventually they retired and
moved to Pine Run.
The couple have three chil-
dren, a daughter in On Top of the
World and two sons in Michigan,
four grandchildren and several
step-grandchildren.
Jean had a little scare five
years ago when she was hospital-
ized for some surgery, then after
more than a month had to go
through some rehab. But she
came out of it all right.
"I'm a fighter," she exclaimed.
No one who hears her story of
World War II would doubt that.

Letter carriers food drive to be May 8

On Saturday, May 8, letter carriers throughout Marion
County as well as more than 10,000 cities and towns
throughout the country will pick up much more than the
mail along their postal routes; they will also collect the
goodness and compassion of their postal customers dur-


ing the 18th annual National Association of Letter Car-
riers (NALC) National Food Drive to "Stamp Out
Hunger."
This annual effort has become the largest one-day food
drive in the nation's history, resulting in more than a half
billion pounds of food to local food banks, pantries and
shelters in all 50 states. Last year in Marion County, a
record 256,000 pounds (a 39 percent increase over last
year) of nonperishable food was collected and donated
to Interfaith Emergency Services for distribution to the
Salvation Army, Brothers Keeper, St. Theresa's Catholic
Church and the Help Agency of the Forest food banks.
The Ocala Post Office was ranked first in the nation in
their union member category for the third year for the
community's outstanding effort in supporting this pro-
gram.
Postal customers are asked to hang a food donation on
their mailbox before their letter carrier delivers the mail
on Saturday, May 8, and the carrier will do the rest. Col-
lection barrels will also be set up at all Post Office
branches to accommodate those with Post Office Boxes.
United Way of Marion County, USPS, Campbell's, Val-
pak, Feeding America, the National Rural Letter Carri-
ers Association and AFL-CIO have partnered with the
NALC to help stamp out hunger.

Ocala, FL -
Now more than ever, great
quality and great value are
what's on everyone's mind.
How can you get the most car
for the least money?
Jenkins Acura Auto USA has
the answer.
"We've had car after car and
truck after truck returned to
us. People simply can't make
the payments any more and
just bring the vehicle back.
We've got so many of them,
our only option is to let new
customers take over loans on
the vehicles and start making
payments," said Jason Dil-
lon, used car sales manager.
Jenkins Acura Auto USA
has row after row of quality
pre-owned vehicles available
for this program. Their ser-
vice department, which is
one of the top rated service
departments in the state, has
inspected, reconditioned and
certified vehicles.
"We just need to move
these vehicles for the banks.
Right now, you can get a used
car or truck, many less than a
year or two old, for less than
two hundred dollars a month
without a penny out of your
pocket. This is a program I
haven't seen in twenty years
in the business," added Dil-
lon. Late model vehicles,
which have already had thou-
sands of dollars in payments
made against them are being
brought back at a staggering
rate. The bank nor dealership
wants these vehicles since


they've already been retailed.
The banks and the dealer-
ship are looking for good
customers with good credit
or bad who are willing to
take payments on these ve-
hicles.
"There's not a vehicle on
our lot that can't be bought
for under two hundred dol-
lars per month and these



"Right now, you can
get a used car or
truck, many less than
a year or two old, for
less than two hun-
dred dollars a month
without a penny out of
your pocket."

Jason Dillon
Used Car Sales Manager
Jenkins Acura Auto USA

example a 2005 Ford Es-
cape, Stk#S1046B, with $0
down is just $197 per month
for 72 months at 5.9% APR
with approved credit plus
tax, tag and title. And I've
got fifty other cars and trucks
that are similar values,"
added Dillon. Dealerships
and banks aren't in the busi-
ness of taking back vehicles
when customers can't make
payments. They'd rather get
them off their books immedi-
ately and will do whatever is
necessary to do so.
Jenkins Auto USA has tak-
en all of the vehicles and put
them in a special section on
their lot. Any interested con-


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

OPINION


LETTER


Facts and fantasy
Having read Robert E. Beckner's
column in the Citizen, Friday, April
9,2010,1 I can only conclude that Mr.
Beckner has a difficulty separating
facts from fantasy and self delusion.
First of all, who pray tell, are
these "true Patriots" who are op-
posed to the "bill?" (It's no longer
just a bill; it's the law of the land.)
And does that mean that we who
supported the bill and our presi-
dent are not true patriots?
Mr. Beckner is right about new
"information" coming about the
"bill." There is and has been a
tremendous amount of disinforma-
tion also. Case in point: "The new
bill mandates all American citizens
to buy insurance." That's not quite
true. No one will be required to buy
health insurance. Those who do
will get a tax incentive.
I don't know if Mr. Beckner
makes stuff up like "Obama's far
left policies such as his handing out
billions of our tax dollars to inter-
national organizations that support
Hamas and other enemies of Amer-
ica" or "He plans to control the cen-
sus, giving illegal immigrants not
only amnesty, but also voting rights
and include them in Social Secu-
rity." But the most inane if not off
the wall comment is probably,
"He plans to muzzle talk radio, plus
forcing workers into unions." Even
if it were true, I'd like to know how
that could be accomplished. I think
that the freedom we have in this
country to express ourselves freely
is priceless. However when one in-
vents information and offers un-
documented diatribe and
meaningless slogans it offers the
country very little as a positive con-
tribution. Another case in point; if
the latest Harris poll says that "40
percent of Americans say Obama is
a socialist, a third think he's a Mus-
lim, a quarter think he was not born
in the United States and is the 'do-
mestic' enemy that the U.S. Consti-


TO THE EDITOR


tution speaks of." Do these miscon-
ceptions exist by accident? I think
not. I suspect that they exist be-
cause of the venomous vitriol found
in columns such as the one here to
which I refer. But where Mr. Beck-
ner really tips his hand is when he
refers to the President of the
United States as "the stand-in Pres-
ident Obama." This isn't about
health care, or any real issue that
this country is faced with. It's a con-
certed effort to discredit the Presi-
dent of the United States, the
president whom I voted for as did
the majority of Americans; a presi-
dent whom I want to succeed for
the good of the United States.
And finally, there's this talk about
the "unquenchable appetite for
even greater power and its demand
for control of the economy..'.' I
would be more concerned about
the unfettered influence and, yes,
control of big corporations who 'in
light of a recent Supreme Court de-
cision can contribute unlimited
funds to campaigns to prevent any
controls or restraints on their activ-
ities. These corporations have
much more control over our daily
lives than any part of the federal
government that I know of. Yet,
presently corporate America is
fighting the most modest regulation
by our federal government to keep
them honest. One example is the
tremendous amount of money
spent to keep workers from organ-
izing by a simple card check proce-
dure. And more recently the
financial sector is spending and
lobbying to prevent much needed
financial regulation. We need to be
objective, rational and willing to
consider real compromises on all
pending issues if America is going
to retain its greatness. That means
putting aside petty insignificant dif-
ferences and working on solutions
with the collegial spirit of what's
best for America.

One more time,


lock your car

Sometimes the message just doesn't get through to peo-
ple. Last week there was the announcement by the
Sheriff's Office that a man had been arrested for
stealing from unlocked cars. It seems he was delivering
newspapers (not ours) early in the morning, and he would
try the doors of parked cars. When he found unlocked ve-
hicles, he would steal items from within that vehicle.
It happened in the southeastern part of the county. We
haven't heard of too many recently out here, but we can be
reasonably sure that the thieves haven't taken a sabbatical.
The idea is quite simple: Lock your car, don't leave items
in plain sight in your vehicle, even in your driveway. When
you run into a convenience store, lock your car and take
your keys. When you pump gas and have to go inside to pay,
same thing. Lock the car And most certainly, when you go

Carry me back to old Virginia
As a Virginian, I was im-
pressed by last week's article by
Ms. Binnie. She covered many of
the intrinsic elements which
brought Virginia into the war of
1861 to 1865. Her facts are sound,
with some minor exceptions to
history
Governor McDonnell should
be applauded for the decision in
declaring April as Confederate
History Month in Virginia. Next
April will begin the 150-year an-
niversary of the start of the war
of the rebellion. It is a time to
honor not only the Confederate
soldiers, but also the Union men
as well. Former Gov Doug Wilder
was not a proficient governor of
Virginia, as he was more of a
celebrity to most Virginians.
As the controversy began, I
watched him on CNN, being in-
terviewed by Wolf Blitzer. Wilder
was happy that McDonnell in-
cluded slavery into the bill. He
also expressed his distaste for
"glorifying the Confederacy
Wilder, like many uneducated
and biased people, refuses to ac-
cept the facts as history provides
us. We do not glorify, we honor!
If you read any diaries or let-
ters from the soldiers of this pe-
riod, or read any old interviews
following the war, they all tell us
that they simply desired the fu-
ture generations to remember
them.
If anyone needs to know more
about this period and how today
we are experiencing some of the
same issues they did back then,
there is plenty of material out
there. It has been said that there
are more books written on the
subject of the civil war than any
other in the world, so there is no
excuse to remain ignorant. So,
thank you Wendy for your fine ar-
ticle, we'll make you an honorary
Virginian for your spirit. By the
way, I believe the historian you

Hybrid politicians


y Foote, in
worth read-

S.1M Popin
Ocala


Every day we seem to be gain-
ing in the number of hybrid prod-
ucts that surround us. Mules,
roses and tangelos have been
around for a while and tele-
phones, cameras and automo-
biles are now combining
technologies that were tradition-
ally used in other products. Un-
fortunately, we are also now
getting hybrid politicians. Gov.
Crist has vetoed Senate Bill 6, a
measure that would have contin-
ued Republican efforts to control
the cost and improve the effec-
tiveness of our public schools.
The Republican legislative
majority passed the bill and it
was endorsed by Florida busi-
ness leaders, several foundations
and former Gov Jeb Bush. Crist
stated his action was prompted
by the large number of calls
(110,000) his office had received
supporting a veto. There were
also public demonstrations by
teachers/educators and teachers
were absent from classrooms
across the state.
Crist's veto surprised most
state Republicans and many ex-
pressed doubt on his ability to
win that party's nomination for a
U.S. Senate seat. Crist is running
against former Florida House
Speaker Marco Rubio who has
strong support from Conserva-
tives both inside and outside of
Florida.
Crist caved in response to a
vocal minority and has placed
his political career and a long
term Republican educational re-
form effort in jeopardy Special
interest groups will no doubt
learn from this event and will be
encouraged to make themselves
heard and seen for any legisla-

tion that threatens their purpose.
President Nixon faced a similar
event during the Vietnam War
and he called on a "silent major-
ity" to support him. He won the
fight.
The ballot doesn't make much
noise as it slips into the box, but
it has more power than all the
phone calls, shouting and protest
signs combined.

Ocala
Our hospital
Munroe Regional Medical
Center (MRMC), being the county
hospital, is "Our Hospital." If the
hospital board decided to im-
pose a tax to support the hospi-
tal, it should be through a
referendum by the residents of
Marion County for "Our Hospi-
tal."
Now, I don't know why Mike
Amsden and Stan McClain are so
all fired up to turn MRMC over to
a for-profit company. If I read the
paper properly, the hospital has
shown a profit for the year-to-
date of $3.2 million. That doesn't
sound like a losing hospital to
me. If these two men don't want
to serve on the board, there are
experienced hospital people
who would be willing to serve
and I count myself as one. Now,
I've written a number of articles
regarding the management of
MRMC because I spent the bet-
ter part of my life in the health
care industry,
Let's get serious for a minute.
If another for-profit hospital cor-
poration comes to Ocala, and
takes over the operation of
MRMC, it is no longer "Our Hos-
pital," but the for-profit chain's
hospital. They can raise rates at
will as they have no one to an-
swer to, because of a contract
with the county commissioners.

The bad news just keeps on coming


fl Robert E.
Beckner
When you pick up
your newspaper or
turn on your TV or
radio to get the day's first
news, do you get frustrated,
upset, mad or just plain dis-
gusted because all you are
reading, hearing or seeing is
"bad news?" If so, don't feel
alone. Americans just like
you are reacting the same
way I can attest to this by the
volume of personal mail, e-
mails and telephone calls.
They come from not only
Marion County or Ocala, but
from several cities and states
up North, South, East and
West. It appears that people
here send the columns to
their relatives back home
and they voice their opinions
to me.
It's always the same thing.
They are angry and in total
disagreement of how this
country is being torn apart
from its roots and freedoms
we have all enjoyed for over
200 years. These are people
who pay attention to what is
and has been done since Mr.
Obama was "given" the pres-
idency Some of the things
that have been mentioned
are Obama's foreign policies
of attacking America's
friends and kowtowing to our
enemies. Mentioned is the
insuting of Israel's Ben-
jamin Netanyahu, how he


didn't meet this Prime Minis-
ter at his plane or at the
White House door, would not
allow any photographs of the
two of them together or shak-
ing hands as is customary All
Obama did was lay down his
non-negotiable demands and
left to go off to dinner. What
a way to treat America's only
true friend in the Near East.
Where does Obama get off
telling Israel they can't build
housing in their own capital,
on their own land God gave
them 2,000 years ago? It
seems Obama regards Israel
as an evil oppressor. This and
other similar acts have
caused the relationship be-
tween our two countries to
be the lowest in many, many
years.
Yet, Obama sends yearly
greetings to the Islamic Re-
public of Iran, exchanges
friendly greetings with Hugo
Chavez of Venezuela and
caves to Russian demands on
arms control, such as cancel-
ing the anti-missile program
that would have been placed
on the borders of Poland and
the Czech Republic. Just
days ago, he signed a new
arms control with Russia to
reduce our missile carriers
and warheads one half to one
third and we produce no new
replacement warheads,
which will contribute prima-
rily to the denuclearization
of the United States, that it
will make the world a more
dangerous place. All
Obama's progressive friends
see history as moving in-
evitably and beneficially to
the left. All of these conces-


sions to Russia have not
brought one thing that
Obama hoped for, such as
Russia's and China's giving
in on the sanctions he wants
against Iran or getting the
Palestinians to sit down to a
peace discussion with Ne-
tanyahu and Israelis. Lead-
ers in North Korea, China,
Iran, Russia and Palestine
clearly are making Obama do
things their way, while our
friends are wondering
whether it pays to be on
America's side.
The American public can
be very specific as to what
they are fed up with and find
it satisfying to say that our
government no longer gov-
erns with the consent of the
people, but governs in spite
of the people. It governs by
selective solutions in the mo-
ment whereby the end justi-
fies the means, not by the
constitutional law of the
land. They don't feel Obama
and his administration ei-
ther honor or respect our
people. They have ignored
their allegiance to the consti-
tution and to the people and
compromised their princi-
ples. Doesn't this sound ex-
actly how they have violated
their oaths of office upon
being sworn into office? You
have the exact wording of
their oaths, why not pull out
your dictionaries and look up
all the meanings of how you
personally feel they have
failed to live up to their du-
ties. It might come in handy
later.
If we talk about taxes going
up in numerous ways, espe-


cially in regard to this new
health bill, by now you know
you'll be paying taxes start-
ing "now" and for the next
four years, before "any" of
the "promised" benefits will
kick in. The amounts the
Obama crowd is talking
about are in trillions and bil-
lions and a million here and
there. Most Americans are
not familiar with what a tril-
lion dollars is, so it doesn't
sink in, the same with bil-
lions and these figures are al-
ways used, it seems, when
followed by the statement "in
over the next decade," as
they try to lower or reduce
said sum in reader's minds.
They also forget to tell you
what all these taxes are going
to be used for. Have you
heard how non-union work-
ers and private companies
could be forced into absorb-
ing the financial liabilities of
"under funded union pen-
sion plans?" Thanks to the
health care mandates and an
Obama executive order, as
concluded by policy analysts
and trade group representa-
tives.
Additional information is
just coming forth as to where
more of the prior stimulus
money that was for creating
jobs for American workers is
being used. We previously
had information that some of
these funds were putting
"Chinese" workers to work-
this one was the production
of the wind turbines used in


the big windmills to produce
wind power in California and
a few other states. Well, now
it's gone further, California
and General Electric have
entered into a $43 billion
contract with the Chinese for
"their" workers to produce
subway type cars. Doesn't
any American companies
produce such a vehicle? Why
use Chinese workers? China
even offered to have their en-
gineers do that particular job
and they would be glad to fi-
nance it for us!
There is also talk of Obama
wanting a new stimulus
package of $430 billion for
new spending, jobs. Will we
Americans allow this to hap-
pen? It's little things that pop
out in conversation like the
government going to hire
16,000 new IRS agents to be
sure all Americans buy that
required health insurance
and to pursue those who
can't show proof. Then there
is the small item of a new 3.8
percent tax to be applied to
each house sold in America.
Latest figures as of April 9,
2010, said 79 percent of
Americans do not approve of
Congress's work, with only 21
percent approval. Taxes are
at the far front of the deep
distrust of the president and
Congress. It's well known
that Congress will not cut So-
cial Security, Medicare, de-
fense, education so that only
leaves them to raise more
taxes or perhaps keep print-


ing money The latest one
being banded about is the
VAT (value added tax) which
is a purchasing tax. It's a fa-
vorite of all politicians, it
simply is a tax on everything
in a product from the first
step of production to the
final sale, all of which the
public doesn't see. There is
no doubt it will come, the
question is when? Not now
due to the November elec-
tions, but between then and
2012 election, if Obama
thinks it won't hurt his re-
election chances.
You add all this negative
daily information up and put
it in the pattern so far shown
and it's not truly a surprise
that the talk of "civil disobe-
dience" rears its ugly head.
The problem is it means one
thing to one person and
something else to the next
person. What America truly
wants is to replace the entire
staff of the White House and
all of Congress by any possi-
ble, legal means. They know
the longer they allow our
country to continue in its
current path the harder it
will be to stop it, so they want
it done ASAP This next elec-
tion cannot come too soon.

The Peter Principle: A lesson for all


S TA N G


Wendy E.
Bin nie


PEOPLE FIRST


In 1969, The Peter Princi-
ple concept was intro-
duced by Canadian
sociologist Dr. Laurence
Johnston Peter and Ray-
mond Hull. This humoristic
book describes the pitfalls of
the bureaucracy in organiza-
tions witnessed during ex-
tensive research into
business organization and its
management. The Peter
Principle book has attained
such renown that The Amer-
ican Heritage Dictionary de-
fines it as "The theory that
employees within an organi-
zation will advance to their
highest level of competence
and then be promoted to and
remain at a level at which
they are incompetent, or, as
Dr. Peter's Principal ex-
plained more simply, "The
cream rises until it sours."
The Peter Principle is so
appropriate and meaningful
a lesson for business, that it
has found its way into Mas-
ters Degree curricula as a
foundation for the next gen-
eration to protect itself. But
it seems that this hierarchy
within companies continues
to be the organizational


structure of choice for gov-
ernment and big business.
Peter Principle Management
is the concept that in bureau-
cratic organizations, new em-
ployees typically start in the
lower ranks, but when they
prove to be competent in the
task to which they are as-
signed, they get promoted to
a higher rank, generally
management. This process of
climbing up the hierarchical
ladder can go on indefinitely,
until the employee reaches a
position where he or she is
no longer competent. At that
moment the process typically
stops, since the established
rules of bureaucracies make
it very difficult to "demote"
someone to a lower rank,
even if that person would be
a much better fit and happier
in a non-management role.
The net result of this princi-
ple is that most of the man-
agement levels of a
bureaucracy will be filled by
incompetent people, who got
there because they were
quite good at doing different
(and usually, but not always,
easier) work than the work
they are currently expected
to perform.
If you're a proficient and
effective software developer,
you're most likely demon-
strating peak competence in
your job right now. As a result
of your performance, your
valuable contribution results
in a promotion to a manage-
ment position. In this new
position, you now do few of
the original tasks which
gained you acclaim. In fact,
little of your current job re-
mains enjoyable, therefore
your heart is no longer in
your work, and it shows.


Given this, promotions stop,
and there you stay, until you
retire or your company goes
under due to mismanage-
ment. Companies will attract
and expand on a certain
level of incompetence. Once
a company forms a culture of
incompetence, only the in-
competent staff will remain,
and the competent ones will
tire of trying to soar with ea-
gles while surrounded by
turkeys, and therefore leave.
G. W Bush spoke to 2,500
people about 'the fog of war"
that followed the terror at-
tacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the
economic downturn and his
return to life as a regular cit-
izen. He blamed "a lack of re-
sponsible regulation" in the
lending industry for the re-
cession and said that Fannie
Mae and Freddie Mac
shouldn't have engaged in
certain financial practices. "I
don't want to sound like a
self-serving guy, but we did
try to rein them in," Bush
said. The audience, gave him
a warm welcome at his ar-
rival, cheered when he said
he wanted to be remembered
as a president who "showed
up in office with a set of prin-
ciples and he was unwilling
to sacrifice his soul for the
sake of popularity." Bush and
Jimmy Carter were examples
of the Peter Principle. In
over their heads and pro-
moted (Bush) beyond the
realm of his capability to ad-
equately perform and dis-
charge the duties of his job.
Think back to how you felt at
the time these things were
taking place. It is easy to be
forgiving when the dust has

settled, and the speaker is
standing before you with a
humbled demeanor. It
changes nothing. Defending
harsh interrogation tactics in-
cluding but not limited to
water boarding is wrong. Pres-
ident Bush needs to admit his
mistake and apologize to hu-
manity and history for sup-
porting and ordering such
kind of tortures. Ifwe, just like
the terrorists, think the same


way, behave the same way,
react the same way, kill the
same way, and above all justify
all those psychological sick-
nesses based on legal and not
legal, then what is the differ-
ence between us and them?
They justify their sick behav-
iors based on religious scripts.
Bush and Cheney did the
same. What happened to the
ethics and our values as the
leaders of world's civilization?
The head of FEMA,
Michael D. Brown, was highly
complimented but to the peo-
ple in need of help in New


Orleans Brown bungled the
relief operation. In fact, Con-
gress held an investigation
into the series of mishaps
that made up FEMAs opera-
tions in New Orleans. A per-
fect example of the Peter
Principle. It was later re-
vealed why Brown experi-
enced hardship as the head
of FEMA: Brown was the vic-
tim of a poor promotion. The
Peter Principle, which states
that people are promoted to
their level of incompetence,
suggests that something is
fundamentally misaligned in


the promotion process. This
view is unnecessary and in-
consistent with the data.
Being promoted is evidence
that a standard has been met.
Regression to the mean im-
plies that future ability will
be lower, on average. Firms
optimally account for the re-
gression bias in making pro-
motion decisions, but the
effect is never eliminated.
Rather than evidence of a
mistake, the Peter Principle
is a necessary consequence
of any promotion rule. Fur-
thermore, firms that take it


into account appropriately
adopt an optimal strategy.
Usually, firms inflate the pro-
motion criterion to offset the
Peter Principle effect, and
the more important is the
transitory component rela-
tive to total variation in abil-
ity, the larger the amount that
the standard is inflated. The
same logic applies to other
situations. For example, it ex-
plains why movie sequels are
generally worse than the
original film and why second
visits to restaurants are less
rewarding than the first.


The billion/million dollar
jokers on Wall Street and en-
virons could not possibly see
themselves as examples of the
Peter Principle. Yet they are,
and if not, they are nothing
more than common crooks
and scoundrels who should
all be sharing the same 'Big
House' for a long, longtime.

and show our apprecia-

of Marion County, could be
PR people for "Our Hospi-
tal." We don't need a hospi-
tal corporation with 120
hospitals in their fold to
take over our hospital, and
if they did, would MRMC
be hospital number 121?
Boy, would we lose our
identity as the hospital of
and for Marion County We
would just be hospital 121.
Having sat in hospital
board meetings, I can just
hear the report: hospital
number 121 is doing ex-
ceedingly well because of
the rate increases we put
in place. We will show a
profit, from No. 121, of
$13.4 million for the year.
Where's that money com-
ing from? Marion County
residents. Where's that
money going? Out of
Florida through their cor-

Palin would say, "we
gotcha, you betcha."
So, let's support our No.

Yep, MRMC is No. 1 in our
hearts and MRMC has
saved many people's
hearts. Why couldn't
MRMC come out with a PR

MRMC and get it financed
by a group of local busi-
nessmen with a PR "Sup-
port MRMC Logo." I know
I for one would help de-
velop a campaign, and it
would be separate from the
foundation, because the
public would be the caveat
to raise money for "Our

maybe I should have that
slogan copywritten. You

A Gathering of Uncertainties


JIM FLYNN
Special to the Citizen
We watched the tele-
vised Tea Party (TP)
roundup on tax day, hop-
ing to form a better under-
standing what TP is and
where it's headed. In ad-
dition to politicians,
celebrities, and unan-
nounced candidates for
something or other, there
was a little music, and a
walk-around comedian
who struggled to get a few
chuckles. The TP crowd is
about serious business -
"our gangster govern-
ment" as Rep. Michelle
Bachmann (R.Minn.) put
it.
More evidence that
America is irritable and
discontented comes from
the states.
A dozen or more are dis-
cussing secession legisla-
tion, a sad remnant of the
Civil War. State govern-
ments are also challeng-
ing recently passed health
legislation, use of their na-
tional guard units, the
constitutionality of the
Real ID licensing act, and
Washington gun controls.
TP spokespeople say
they're not a political
party and don't intend to
become one. So is TP a
populist uprising of swing
voters? A gathering storm
of disgruntled conserva-
tives? A defection of disil-
lusioned Democrats? A
taxpayer rebellion? All of
the above?
Recently Ryan Hecker,
a TP activist in Houston,
conducted an Internet
survey of TP participants
and produced a document
called "The Contract from
America," which was cir-
culated at TP tax-day
gatherings around the
country. It's a potpourri of
principles, such as market
capitalism, individual lib-
erty, limited government,
and nagging irritations,
such as cap and trade, tax
reform, pork barrel
spending, and recent
health care legislation.
In his recent retirement
from Congress announce-
ment, Senator Evan Bayh
(D-Ind.) hit upon the sin-
gle issue which motivates
tea partiers: "The peo-
ple's business is not being
done. Moderates and in-
dependents just aren't
buying our message." Tea
partiers and independent
voters have finally recog-
nized that politics and cor-
ruption are the business

being done in Washington.
TPs have about six
months to produce an or-
ganized and focused effort
for the 2010 congressional
elections. According to
New York Magazine, some
TP chapters have put to-
gether a hit list of incum-
bent Senators and House
members who deserve to
be unelected.
At this writing the still
young TP movement is a
headless herd of angry
horsemen. Previous pop-
ulist uprisings have had
prominent leaders around
whom to rally their forces,
such as Teddy Roosevelt
in 1912 and Ross Perot in
1992. Leaderless causes
are fair game for hijack-
ers.
Popular Mississippi
Governor Haley Barbour,
formerly a very successful
chairman of the National
Republican Committee
and currently chairman of
the Republican Governors


Association, said recently
that Tea Partiers "ought to
be with us, and if they're
not it's our fault." On is-
sues, Tea partiers lean to-
ward the Republican view
by a margin of three to
one.
Tea partiers need to be
reminded regularly and
strongly that re-hiring the
Republican Congress the
people fired in 2008 is like
ordering from the menu
that made them sick in the
first place. Recent polls
suggest less than 40 per-
cent of voters intend to re-
turn their incumbent
representatives to Con-
gress. But on Election Day
voters tend to rationalize:
"My rep is one of the good
guys. It's all those other
bums who should be
thrown out of office."
Interestingly, when he
was running for another
term as leader of the pop-
ulist Bull Moose Party, for-
mer President Theodore
Roosevelt was in favor of a

constitutional amendment
to give more rights to the
states, and allow voters to
recall politicians they felt
were not doing their jobs.
Present surveys indi-
cate Americans have a
higher opinion of the Tea
Party than they have of the
Democratic and Republi-
can parties.
In recent off-year elec-
tions, independent voters
went for the winners by
substantial margins.
Added to TP members, in-
dependent voters could be
the force which changes
the persistent pattern of
re-electing incumbents
who are increasingly con-
cerned with their careers
and cavalier about issues
and solutions which re-
quire courage, and com-
mitment to the people
they were elected to
serve.

m Life around the world


pation and the subsequent
liberation by the Ameri-
Carol cans.
The two met in New
Beaver York City and were mar-
ried in 1966 in Queens.
Jean was an electronic en-
gineer who worked for
GTE International, setting
up radio and television
"Vrlni"rnlf uv


Jean and Bernadette
Tone have retired and
settled in our Palm
Cay community. Their re-
tirement is but another
adventure in a life filled
with world travel while
living in many countries,
amid different cultures
and lifestyles.
Bernadette was born in
Drogheda, Ireland. She
moved to New York City as
a young girl with 20
pounds in her pocket
looking for a job. She and
her sister joined their
brother, Frank, who was
living there at the time.
She obtained a position
with Pan American Air-
ways.
Jean was born in Shang-
hai, China to a Chinese fa-
ther and French mother.
They lived there during
the WWII Japanese occu-


production faciiities over-
seas.
Their first assignment
after their marriage was
in Hong Kong, which at
the time was a British
Crown Colony. They set up
home there, and their two
boys were born while they
lived in Hong Kong. They
enjoyed a very interesting
and wonderful 31/2 years
there, in a bustling me-
tropolis of business, trade
and banking. Bernadette
went with Jean on busi-
ness trips to Tokyo, visit-
ing temples and Zen
shrines.
Once a year, to maintain
U.S. "green card" status,
they had to enter U.S. soil,
the nearest place being
Guam, in the Pacific.
They returned to N.Y. in
the mid 70s and were sent
to Sao Paulo, Brazil for


two years. Bernadette
writes: "In this beautiful
climate a highlight for us
was a trip north to Rio De
Janeiro, to the famous
beach at Ipanema and
the distracting parade of
suntanned men and
women." They visited the
Christ statue of Corcovado
and drove over the moun-
tains from Sao Paulo to
Santos Beach.
The next assignment
was Montreal, Canada.
"Life in the French-Cana-
dian city proved to be cul-
turally interesting, but
hard to get used to the
cold, snow, and ice for so
many months," writes
Bernadette.
The next placement was
for Algeria, but the prepa-
ration for this move took
them to Massachusetts for
a couple of years. While in
Algeria, they lived in Sidi-
bel-Abess, "an older town
with remnants of French
occupation, sidewalk
cafes on tree lined streets,
and the former home of
the French Foreign Le-
gion." Life there was a
challenge for the family
with the different culture,


dress, and language. A
weekly bus trip to a
Mediterranean beach
proved to be a Godsend
for them. A welcome
change was a trip to Ali-
cante in the south of
Spain.
Their final move in 1982
was to the St. Petersburg
area and the town of
Clearwater. They stayed
there for eight years,
building lasting friend-
ships; the boys finished
their education and went
off to university.
Jean took a new job in
Corinth, Miss., "a small
Civil War town with a won-
derful history, antiques
and impressive antebel-
lum mansions." From
there, they moved to
Huntsville, Ala., and
worked for a company
that had contracts with
the U.S. government, man-
ufacturing components
for the Humvee used in
Desert Storm.
Then came retirement
in our area. Bernadette
says that our hills and
green pastures remind
her of Ireland at times;
she says she feels they are


home.
Saturday Night Social
Bob McClelland and his
lovely Mrs. entertained a
group of 35 Palm Cay com-
munity members during
the April 14, Wednesday
night social.
Nancy Solomon, who
sponsored this social, said
that these get-togethers
are about socializing with
your neighbors and enjoy-
ing good times and enter-
tainment.
Bob and his Mrs. used
karaoke for background
accompaniment. They
sang songs from the 40s
but concentrated on a va-
riety of music from the 50s
and 60s, which were a fa-
vorite of the audience.
Bob and his wife inter-
acted with the audience
during the program.
After the music, all were
treated to cake and coffee
and social time.
Since we no longer have
a monthly social night,
please check your Palm
Cay Sun and the Citizen
for upcoming shows.
Potluck
Come one, come all on
Saturday at 6 p.m. at the


Oasis Clubhouse. This is a
great gathering of friends

great food together.

iting, bring them along

ner. See you there. Grace
Potter, chairperson.

YOUR DENTAL
HEALTH


by M.EHampton,D.D.S.
CORROSIVE
EFFECT OF
EATING DISORDER
The eating disorder known
as bulimia poses a problem
for the teeth that may be
overlooked. Repeated
purging of stomach acids can
cause significant loss of tooth
enamel. In one such case, a
person with a history of
bulimia began treatment to
correct a closed bite,
characterized by decreased
vertical tooth dimension and
an abnormal overbite in
which the lower jaw
protrudes. Due to stomach
acid-induced enamel loss, the
patient's incisors lost one-
third to one-half of their
original length. The closed
bite was caused by over-
eruption of the lower incisors
into the space created by
eroded teeth. Fortunately,
treatment of the eating
problem led to aesthetic
correction involving
porcelain veneer crowns that
could be used to restore the
damaged teeth.
Many people suffering
from bulimia are able to hide
the disorder from others but
it is more difficult to keep it
a secret from their dentists.
Changes inside the mouth of
a bulimic can be detected
during the course of a routine
dental examination. A good
experience with dentistry is
based on making the right
choice in a family dentist. If
you don't have a dentist at
this time, at the office of
Mark E. Hampton, D.D.S,
we're currently accepting
new patients. Please call 352-
489-5071 to schedule an
appointment. We're located
at 119902 Illinois Street,
Dunnellon. "We're Dedicated
to Excellent Dentistry."
P.S. People who habitually
drink high-acid citrus
beverages have also been
known to experience
significant loss of tooth
enamel.

son. On this day in 1954,
Hank Aaron hit the first of
his 755 home runs. With
baseball in mind, your Pun
Alley writer takes to the plate
to try to make some hits for
you.
Shocking
Several years ago the


Washington Nationals, with
the worst record in baseball,
fired their manager. Usually
for results that bad in Wash-
ington you don't get fired;
you get re-elected.
Strike Out
The devil challenged the
angels to a baseball game.
"That's silly," said the an-
gels. "You know all the good
ball players are up here."
"Yes," answered the devil,
"but where are all the um-
pires?"
English Baseball
The longshoremen in
South Hampton, England,
have developed a variant on
their version of baseball. The
object of the game is not just
to hit the ball with the bat,
but also to get it to hit or to
land in one of the many
smokestacks in the area. Of
course the game is called
Chimney Cricket.
Foul Balls
I attended a baseball game


in Bangkok. I left after the
15th inning. It was still a Thai
ballgame.
With the beginning of base-
ball season the umpires don't
have it easy. The first time
they go out on the field the
band strikes up "Oh, say, can
you see."
Cinderella got kicked off
the baseball team because
she always ran away from the
ball.
One young woman at her
first baseball game said she
liked the pitcher best because
he hit the bat every time.
First Baseball Player:
"You didn't get on so well
with that millionaire's
daughter?"
Second Baseball Player:
"Terrible no hits, no runs, no
heiress."
The difference between
baseball and politics is that
in baseball you're out if
you're caught stealing.
Coach: "What this team


needs is life."
Manager: "Oh, no, thirty
days is enough."
A baseball player can sell
himself to a new team if he
has a good pitch.
Maybe while I'm in N.Y I'll
take in a baseball game or just
visit that tall building named
after umpires. You know, the
Umpire State Building.
Last Inning
Two buddies, Bob and
Don, were two of the biggest
baseball fans in America.
They discussed baseball his-
tory in winter and pored over
every box score during the
season. They went to 60 or
more games a year. They
even agreed that whoever
died first would try to come
back and tell the other if
there was baseball in
heaven.
One summer night, Bob
passed away in his sleep
watching the Yankees. A few
nights later, his buddy Don


awoke to the sound of Bob's
voice from beyond. "Bob, is
that you?" Don asked. "Of
course it's me" Bob replied.
"This is unbelievable!" ex-
claimed Don. "So tell me, is
there baseball in heaven?"
"Well I have some good
news and some bad news for
you. Which do you want to
hear first?"
"Well, the good news is that
yes there is baseball in
heaven, Don."
"Oh, that is wonderful. So
what could possibly be the
bad news?"
"You're pitching tomorrow
night!"
Florida Heat
Rumor has it that the
Florida Marlins baseball
team will be renamed "Hu-
midity" so that fans can say,
"It's not the Heat that's so
bad; it's the Humidity."
By Ship Of Course
A travel agent would get a
big bonus if she could sell the


cruise ship's entire prome-
nade level. Last winter she
scored when a representa-
tive from the Saint Louis'
baseball club booked the
club on a cruise and re-
served the whole promenade
level. Sadly, the team man-
ager called back the next day
and said that four players
would not be going. She tried
to sell the remaining four
berths without success. As a
result she was a few Cards
short of a full deck.
Eye Eye
The immortal pitcher Cy
Young once got bopped in the
left eye with a line drive. He
was told to wear a patch, but
refused, saying it would hurt
his depth perception.
Still, before he went to the
mound, his coach warned
him to rely mostly on his
sighted eye. "Remember,"
said he, "only the good eye,
Young."

To rob or to be robbed, that is the question


Rev.
James L.
Snyder


OUT To


Many questions in
life simply do not
deserve the time it
takes to answering them.
And herein lies the great-
est wisdom of all human-
ity. Figuring out which
questions you should an-


swer and which ones you
should just let go by the
wayside.
If I had my rather,
there would be very few
questions I would really
answer. When I say there
are some questions that
should not be answered, I
am also inferring that
some questions absolutely
need to be answered. As a
general rule of thumb, any
question posed by the
Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage is definitely in
the latter category. This is
a matter of health, my
health.
Even when she poses
the question, which I
know is a trick question,
"does this dress make me
look old?" To ignore this
question is to court trou-

ble, and my courting days
are over. After years of
trial and error, mostly
error, I have come to it
reasonably safe answer.
"Oh, my dear, nothing
could ever make you look
old."
The key to answer such
as this is to keep them as
short as possible. Any
elaboration only provides
opportunity to slip down
that slippery slope called
"You're in Trouble, Man."
Then there are ques-
tions that I need to ask
myself One question that
I never have to ask myself
is, "Should I rob or should
I not rob?"
I can hear somebody
asking why I would ask
such a question. And the
simple answer is this, I re-
cently was robbed.
The circumstances of
the robbery are quite sim-
ple. I had been out of town
for several weeks and was
anxious to get back to my
office and try catching up
on some of my delinquent
work Actually, my work is
never delinquent; it is the
worker that is delinquent.
But whichever way you
choose to look at it, there
was a lot of work that
needed to be done and in
a very short matter of
time.
I came into my office
and immediately noticed
that there was something
out of place. The average
Philistine who would


come into my office might,
at first, think that it was a
total wreck or the after-
math of a hurricane. But,
be of good cheer, there is a
degree of orderliness in
my disarray.
However, something did
not feel right. I know I had
been away for a few weeks
but I still had the feeling
something was askew in
my office when I entered
it.
Then I noticed that the
back door of my office was
open. Beyond that was the
sanctuary and the lights in
the sanctuary were on.
The back door to the sanc-
tuary was open. Now, al-
though my memory is not
always 100 percent, I
knew that something here
was wrong.
Then I looked at my
desk. It did not look right.
Sure, there were papers
piled very high, stacks of
books here and there on
my desk But in spite of all
of that, my desk looked
naked. And boy, do I hate
a naked desk.
Then, a terrible thought
wrestled my brain to the
mat and on the count of
three, it finally dawned on
me. My computer was
gone!
First, I did not quite be-
lieve it. Someone was
playing a nasty joke on
me. I know, it was my wife.
She came into my office to


clean up my office and
straighten it out. I was
tempted to give her a
piece of my mind. But
since most of my mind was
on the mat, I ruled that
out I think there is a limit
to how far a joke should
go.
So I picked up the
phone and called my wife.
When she answered I
said, "Ha, Ha, Ha. Very
funny joke, Ms. Corn-
husker" I always call her
Ms. Cornhusker when she
plays a joke on me.
The other end of the
phone was silent. I could
hear her breathing. Then
she said, "What in the
world are you talking
about, Mr. Numbskull."
She always calls me Mr.
Numbskull when she has
no idea what I am talking
about, which occurs a lot.
"My computer," I said,
"where did you put it?"
"I didn't put your com-
puter anywhere."
By the time we played
17 rounds of "Who's on
first," the situation began
to clarify itself The very
simple elements of the sit-
uation were, I had been
robbed of my computer.
Someone broke into our
church, entered my office,
snatched my computer
and got out of Dodge. Not
only did they grab my
computer, but they took
my backup exterior hard


drive as well. My entire
life was on the computer.
It slowly sank in that
somebody stole my com-
puter.
I did have some biblical
thoughts about this. Like,
when I catch the rascal,
"Let not thy left hand
know what thy right hand
doeth" (Matthew 6:3 KJV).
And, "That thou doest, do
quickly" (John 13: 27 KJV).
I then remembered a
great story. When the
famed Bible commentator,
Matthew Henry was
robbed, that very night he
prayed: "I thank Thee,
first, because I was never
robbed before; second, be-
cause although they took
my purse, they did not
take my life; third, be-
cause although they took
my all, it was not much;
and fourth, because it was
I who was robbed, and not
I who robbed."
Therefore, it is better to
be robbed then to rob.

New England Club seeking some new officers

An article

Leonardo de
noted that the
son "looks wil
listens with


touches without feeling, eats
without tasting, moves with-
out physical awareness, in-
hales without awareness of
odor or fragrance, and talks
without thinking." This might
be understandable if we
were still working and caring
for homes and children.
J u ne Retired people should not
R o b e r t a allow ourselves to be this
way. We certainly should be
able to make the time to have
present moment focus. This
will enable us to find the
richness in everyday experi-
ences. It will bring more

itrast, Enjoy!" joyment into our lives. Why

change.
We, the officers of this club
believe, after serving for the
past four years, it is time for a
change. At March's meeting,
Lorraine Benotti (president),
Lori McMullen (vice presi-
dent) and Jean Nims (refresh-
ment hostess) announced
their resignations, effective

secretary/treasurer, is open
also, either this month or in
the fall when, hopefully,
meetings commence again.
Four years ago, the New
England Club was on the
brink of being dissolved due
to lack of replacements. For-
tunately, at the last hour
some of us stepped up, thus
saving the club. We gave it
our best and feel these years
have provided good times for
us New Englanders. We have
heard good reports "through
the grapevine." But now we

are hoping that once again
people will accept the chal-
lenge of carrying on our club!
The situation is, no re-
placements, no New England
Club!
The April luncheon at the
Golden Corral was our last
meeting of this year. Will we
commence again next Octo-
ber? Yes, it is a commitment.
Yes, there is a lot of planning.
But, it is also lots of fun.


Do you want to save our

some very complex accom-
paniment to play and does a
wonderful job for us. Jean
Monroe, our director, puts in
many hours interpreting the
music and words, instilling
this in our minds. Thank you.
Many people behind the
scenes work hard creating
the program and getting it
printed and folded. Bill Mon-
roe makes us CDs of our in-
dividual parts. The board of
directors keeps it all run-
ning, the section leaders or-
ganize weekly practices and
the whole chorus is dedi-
cated to singing the best we
can.
Thanks to the ushers, to
Bob Wrobleski for his narra-
tion and to the light and
sound people.
We thank our audience for
their appreciation and gen-
erosity. We will see you again
in December. Have a wonder-
ful summer and remember
singing and listening is good
for your health. For informa-
tion call Anne at 352-732-0706.
Williamsburg Cruise Club
Fred O'Blenis of Williams-
burg Cruise Club tells us that
he has about a dozen cabins


left on the Carnival Dream
for Nov. 27, and room on the
second bus for about 10 peo-
ple. In June we must return
the cabins that we do not sell,
and when they are gone, the
price will go up. This is a
seven-night cruise with four
ports of call.
We are also looking at
doing the Allure of the Seas in
November 2011. We may do a
cruise out of Tampa in the
spring of 2011. Please call
Fred for more information on
all of our trips at 352-237-6367.
Fall Prevention Seminar
This took place on April 15
at the ACC in Suite H. It was
free and given by Gentiva
home health. Only about 30
people, including a few exer-
cise instructors showed up.
They missed receiving some
good information. At some
future date, it will take place
again.
We were told that falls are
a serious health problem for
those over 65. It is the lead-
ing cause of injury deaths
and a common cause of non-
fatal injuries and hospital
admissions for them. The
falls can come from many
things including medication
side effects.
Dr. Solanki of Solanki Car-
diology discussed cardiac


prevention methods. There
are some pills, such as beta
blockers, needed to slow the
heart and/or lower blood
pressure. If it gets too low, it
can cause dizziness, unsteady
balance, or light headedness.
You should let your doctor
know about this so a lower
dosage can be prescribed.
The doctor may even decide
the patient no longer needed
the pill. The best time to take
a heart pill is in the morning.
Then the Medical Director
of the Movement Disorders
Clinic discussed gait disor-
ders. 90 percent of her pa-
tients have Parkinson's. They
have many problems walking
and she showed us a few.
These can lead to falls. Es-
sential tremor does not affect
walking. Tai Chi is very good
for balance.
A physical therapist from
Gentiva discussed other
problems that can cause
falls. Inactivity can lead to
more falls. He suggested
modifying our home environ-
ment to lower the risk. Some
of the ways would be to get
rid of scatter rugs and always
have night lights on.
People who may be at risk
for a fall besides those al-


ready mentioned are: Those
who have trouble getting
around, have a history of
stroke, have a progressive
neurological disease, have
arthritis, or other problems
with their legs, vision prob-
lems, etc.
For more information, call


Gentiva at 352-402-0660 or
visit www.gentiva.com. Their
services are covered by
Medicare, Medicaid, and
many health insurance com-
panies.

LANDING
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 16
The set looked like Ocala Civic The-
atre's crew had been hired, but was ac-
tually the results of Ed Gorsky's design
and construction begun last September
- fabulous. Our veteran thespians were
at their very best. It was a relief to see
Betty Krause had NOT been miscast as
one of the Temperance Ladies, with her
hilarious track record kept alive by
scene-stealer, Jim Pohlers. We are in-
deed lucky to have such a capable cast
among our neighbors.
Talent, talent, talent
Our very own Dotty Bouchet was cho-
sen among those who auditioned for the
Circle Square Cultural Center's "The
World Has Talent" show on May 1. Au-
ditions were limited to amateur indi-
viduals or duets from On Top of the


World and surrounding communi-
ties who received five minutes to
strut their stuff. This will be a seri-
ous production with serious prize
money and serious judges including
Jaye Baillie, Marion County Cham-
ber of Commerce; Steve Specht, Ap-
pleton Museum of Art; Bill Barr,
Radio 92.9FM; Ann Spang, Marion
County Economic Development;
Mary Britt, Ocala Civic Theatre;
Matthew Wardell, Ocala Symphony
Orchestra and Rosie Mareno Jones,
Marion County Senior Services.
Tickets for non-residents range
from just $9 to $11, so here's your
chance to enjoy her rendition of
"Somewhere Over the Rainbow"
while rooting for Dotty.

ing resident. Contact him with news
