Push made to get defibrillators in Corridor communities


Teams gear up
for May 21 relay
Seventeen teams are
ready to walk in next
week's Relay for Life at
Liberty Middle School, the
night of May 21.
The teams represent
churches, schools, organi-
zations and families, all
with the common goal of
fighting cancer. Money
raised by the teams and
during the event helps
fund the many programs
offered by the American
Cancer Society
"All the money raised by
these events stays right
here in Marion County,"
said Danielle Clark, com-
munity representative for
the American Cancer So-
ciety. The relay at Liberty
Middle school is the fifth
and final relay for 2010 in
Marion County
Cancer survivors are in-
vited to start the relay by
walking the first lap at 6
p.m. Pre-registration is en-
couraged through marion-
relaycom. Registration is
also available at the event.
As darkness fall, candles
are lit during the lumi-
naria ceremony to honor
those who lost their battle
to cancer Names are read
aloud of each person hon-
ored with a luminaria.
Throughout the evening,
teams continue to raise
funds for the cause. Al-
ready teams have raised
more then $7,000.
For more information,
call the local office at 352-
629-4727 or see the web-
site at marionrelaycom.

CLEAR!!!
Most people have seen medical or po-
lice shows where emergency or hospital
personnel use a defibrillator to try to
shock a person's heart back into rhythm to
save the victim's life.
Now there are some EMS-type people
who want you to have one in your neigh-
borhood, with trained people available by
pager in case of cardiac arrest.
Lew Simon, a basic life support in-
structor who lives in The Villages, was the
lead speaker at the State Road 200 Coali-
tion Monday afternoon. He was talking
about a program already in his develop-
ment and in a southern Marion County
community that has various people
trained in use of the defibrillators (AEDs)
and in CPR.
"I've been pushing AED and CPR for a
longtime," he told the Coalition members
gathered for their monthly meeting.
When he moved to The Villages, he
went to Lake Sumter EMS and got the
program started. After it is set up and
working, when anyone who lives on his
circle (53 homes) calls 9-1-1, a little icon


appears on the computer screen to show
the call-taker that the neighborhood is
covered under this program. If the call is
for cardiac arrest, the icon is activated
and everyone on that block gets a page.
Those who have the pagers know where
the AED is located, usually on the outside
in a locked box at some centrally located
house. While some respond directly to the
call to start CPR, others, seeing the re-
sponse, can go get the AED. In most cases,
the entire process takes less than a cou-
ple of minutes.
Meanwhile, EMS is on the way, but the
neighbors get there much faster.
"It's neighbors saving neighbors,"
Simon told the audience.
He described how CPR keeps "oxy-
genated blood" flowing to the brain even
though the heart is not pumping. Every
two minutes of CPR the AED is used to try
to shock the heart back into action.
The AED costs $3,000 or less, and that
cost is shared by the neighbors, but is a
one-time thing. In some cases a benefac-
tor can help pay for the defibrillator. The
pager can run as little as $4.25 per month.
Simon tried to show a video of a Fox 35

MICHEL NORTHSEA
Staff Writer

Smiling, giggling and enthusias-
tic first graders jumped aboard a
SunTran bus last week at Ham-
mett Bowen Elementary
Their destination? Nowhere.
Aboard the bus Steve Neal, gen-
eral manager of Marion County's
SunTran System, explained the
merits reducing the carbon
footprint and how they might
one day themselves use a bus get-
ting around a college campus.
Neal invited the participation of
youngsters by asking a few ques-
tions.
"Where are some of the places
you can ride this bus to?" he
asked.
The answers varied but Disney
World, Sea World and Africa were
a few of the answers he heard.
When Neal told the first graders
that SunTran only served the
Ocala area, the youngsters
changed their answers to Wild Wa-
ters, Chuckee Cheese and Wal-
mart, all reflective of the six bus
routes maintained by SunTran.

Census staff begins going door-to-door


U.S. Census Bureau workers
have started stage two of their
2010 Census data collection efforts
- personally visiting residences
that didn't return a completed cen-
sus form. If you didn't mail your
census form back, a census worker
may soon visit your home.
Though census workers will


identify themselves, Marion
County officials encourage citi-
zens to stay safe by following these
safety tips:
/ Ask to see the person's ID.
Each census worker will carry an
official government badge with his
or her name.
/ Census takers will not ask to


enter your home. If a person asks
to come inside your home, this is a
red flag.
/ If you are unsure whether the
person who came to your resi-
dence is a census worker, call your
regional census center at 404-335-

news report about a man in The Villages
who had been saved, but the audio didn't
work. Those who wish can go to myfoxor-
lando.com and search for "villages pager
system" to get the video.
In it, David Rowland describes how he
collapsed late last year in full cardiac ar-
rest in his kitchen, even leaving a dent on
his dishwasher where it was struck by his
head. But the call went out and neighbors
rushed to the home, and kept the blood
flowing and kept trying to shock the heart
until EMS arrived.
Even when he arrived at the hospital,
doctors felt he wouldn't make it through
the night, and his family from Atlanta had
arrived and they were even writing his
obituary
But he made it through those first cru-
cial hours, and today is back playing golf
three times a week.
EMS Capt. Joel Matthias of Marion
County Fire Rescue told the Coalition,
"This is really a valuable program." He
said it only takes a "couple of hours out of
your life" to learn the CPR and AED op-
eration.
He said the program is in operation in
the southern Marion County community
of Stonecrest.
"This program will save lives. It already
has."
Liability was an issue raised, but the
speakers noted the state's "Good Samari-
tan Act" and said liability hasn't been a
problem.
Paul Clark, chief operating officer of
Munroe Regional Medical Center, says the
communication system helps the hospital
get ready for an incoming victim. The hos-
pital gets its cath lab people ready, and he
noted, "Our goal is to get there before you


BUS
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
As each group of first
graders climbed aboard
and took a seat on the bus
Neal explained the seats of
the bus were made up of a
fabric that could not be
torn or cut accidentally or
deliberately and how the
tinted windows of the bus
helps, along with the air
conditioning system, keep
the bus a pleasant 74 de-
grees in the summer. He
showed how those in
wheelchairs could still
board the bus for a trip to a
store or doctor as needed.
Before exiting the bus
each group of students
joined in singing "The
Wheels on the Bus Go
Round" complete with ap-
propriate hand motions.
The SunTran buses carry
an average of 1,400 people
six days a week, primarily
serving the city of Ocala
and the Silver Spring
Shores area, said Greg
Slay, director of the Ocala/
Marion County Transporta-
tion Planning Organiza-
tion, TPO. SunTran is
federally funded through
the Federal Transportation
Administration, the
Florida Department of
Transportation, the TPO,
the county and Ocala.
But for residents along
the State Road 200 the
wheels of the SunTran bus
aren't going round and
round now or anytime
soon. Although those at the
TPO see a need for a bus
service along State Road
200, there's a lack of suffi-
cient funding to move for-
ward on providing the bus
service, Slay said.
He suggested once the
2010 Census figures were
finalized, the population in
the area may provide addi-
tional funding that could
be used for expansion of
SunTran Services.

do."
He said the goal is 90 minutes from
"door to balloon." That means that from
the time the patient arrives at the door,
they have the 90 minutes to get them treat-
ment, whether it be a balloon procedure
that will open up the flow of blood, or a
stent or some other operation. Munroe, he
said, averages 53 minutes for that treat-
ment.
Generally, this is a neighborhood pro-
gram, not one that is run by the developer
or management.
For those interested, Marion County
Fire Rescue can steer them in the right
direction.

the Census Bureau.
Census takers will only
ask the questions on the of-
ficial census form.
These are basic demo-
graphic questions such as
the name, age and sex of
each resident within your
home.
Census officials will
never ask for personal in-
formation, such as social
security numbers or bank-
ing information.
If they do, ask the person
to leave and call law en-
forcement.
If someone is not home
when the census official
stops by, the census worker
will leave a two-sided "no-
tice of visit" with instruc-
tions on how to contact a
census staffer to schedule
an appointment (to com-
plete the census form).
Remember, whoever an-
swers the census questions
at each residence needs to
give the information for the
entire household.
You must be at least 15
years old to answer the
census questions.
If a census official ar-
rives at your home, but you
do not speak English, let
the census official know.

In honor of mom


Students at Hammett Bowen Elementary School were offered a spe-
cial way to honor mom on her day. Last Friday, Publix employees
came in with heart-shaped cakes for the youngsters to decorate for
their mothers. The event was also a fundraiser for the school as it
kept a portion of the proceeds from the purchase of the cakes.

OPINION

The defection


of Charlie Crist

he ramifications of Gov Charlie Crist's decision to run
for the U.S. Senate from Florida as an Independent
could be far and wide.
Did our governor just seriously damage the Republican
Party's hopes of taking control of the 100-member body in
Washington?
No matter what he says, we believe the basic reason for
Crist's defection is simple: He couldn't win the Republican
primary. He had lost so much ground in a month since de-
claring on CNN that he would definitely be the Republican
nominee that he needed to do something to keep his hopes
alive.
But his biggest impact could be that he splits the GOP
vote and hands the seat to the Democrats, which actually
would be a pickup for them and cause consternation
throughout the Republican ranks in the country.
Those who want the Republicans to recapture control of
Congress will have to do some fancy footwork in this race to
keep their hopes alive. This was a development they
haven't counted on in their drive to win in the November
elections.
For many, it just confirms what many have been saying
for months, that Crist was not a true Republican.
So here we go again, with Florida directly in the spotlight
of the national political scene.
This time around, at least let's count ballots accurately
from the beginning.

Let's face it; it's time to be social


Jim
Clark


There comes a time when
you have to go modern. I've
always considered myself
pretty good with computers, even
at my age, and I have decided to
take the next step.
I joined Facebook.
For those of you who aren't fa-
miliar with Facebook, it's called
a "social media" site. You can
post information about yourself,
and people you know find you
and ask to be your "friend." If
you approve, you two are linked
somewhere out in cyberspace.
You can post pictures, send
messages, conduct live chat (I
haven't gone that far yet) and
search through the millions of
people for old friends or, in my
case, a relative.
That's how I started, searching

LETT ER

Join the Legion
The American Legion was
chartered by Congress in 1919 as
a veterans service organization.
It is the largest of such organiza-
tions, as such your thoughts and
your voice will be heard if you
wish to bring them to anyone's
attention.
The American Legion repre-
sents you and all veterans in pro-
tecting the rights and benefits of
those who have served their
country They are very active in
directing our needs, as veterans,
to the VA and the VA hospitals.
Political and economic issues
of veterans are represented
every day in Congress and the


for a cousin I hadn't heard from
in a long time. I searched on the
Internet, and it steered me to
Facebook. I recognized her site
right away because of a couple of
things, her hometown and her
birthday I knew I had the right
person.
We've already exchanged mes-
sages. The last time I saw her in
person was probably in 1969 in
New Jersey Since then I've
moved to Florida and she's in
Arizona.
I've already added some
"friends," mostly my kids and
grandkids.
Browsing through Facebook
can be an education. There are
all sorts of posts with various
types of information about peo-
ple. The company tries to weed
out the really bad stuff, but it
amazes me what people put on
there. With me, it's going to be
real simple as I try to keep hack-
ers and identity thieves at bay
One of these days I might get
brave and put my picture on the
site, but then again, that might
scare some people away
I originally got started with a
Facebook account a few months
ago so I could browse through


looking for news items and news-
papers. That works pretty well,
too.
I have been concerned in the
past couple of weeks with stories
circulating around the Internet
about security breaches on the
website. I'll be keeping a close
eye on that.
It's amazing how Facebook
reads the profiles and makes
suggestions. It's already asked
me to be a friend of a couple of
people I don't really know be-
cause their names are on more
than one of my family members. I
guess the computer figures if two
of my friends know someone, I
should know them, too.
In those cases, if I haven't ini-
tiated contact, I think I'll pass.
So if you want to browse, go to
facebook.com and start looking.
You can visit some places with-
out actually signing up.
But if you do, be careful what
information you put out there.
You know there are people who
are just waiting to get something
they can use to rip you off.

S TO THE EDITOR


White House. Issues such as
health care, tricare, veteran ben-
efits and national security are
just some of the items that the
American Legion focuses on in
your behalf. As a national organ-
ization we have a strong voice in
Congress and the White House
and increasing our membership
strengthens that voice.
In addition, personal benefits
such as hotel, car rental, auto
and life insurance, prescription
drugs are available to all Legion
members.
Post 354 has been noted for
being "the post that does the
most for our local vets and the
communities we live in."

OPINION Friday, May 14, 2010 9


PEOPLE FIRST, NOT GOVERNMENT



Restrictions apply to use of Second Amendment


I W endy E.
i w ]Binnie

What must be done to
remove media, Con-
gress and half the
population from the grips of
NRA propaganda? To read
the second amendment is to
agree with ChiefJustice War-
ren Burger: 'The NRA has
perpetrated a fraud on the
American public. History, the
English language and two
earlier SCOTUS decisions
clearly define the amend-
ment as not at all about indi-
vidual rights to bear arms not
related to state militia. "The
right of bearing arms for a
lawful purpose is not a right
granted by the constitution."
In 1939, SCOTUS ruled in
U.S. vs. Miller: "The 2nd
amendment does not grant
the right to bear arms that do
not have some reasonable re-
lationship to the preserva-
tion and efficiency of a
well-regulated militia." The
NRA was launched in 1871,
five years before The
Supreme Court ruled in
Cruikshank vs. U.S. 1876.
The right to bear arms is
equal to the right to own a
tuba, nothing more and noth-
ing less, and, nothing to do
with the constitution. Love
the show, but, please, let's get


the Constitutional stuff cor-
rect, even as SCOTUS may
not it's important. It im-
plies and thus furthers the
myth that there is an uncon-
ditional Second Amendment
empowerment of individu-
als, which there is not. But
why argue the gun toting
crowd and those who allow
them this awesome and dan-
gerous pastime will dearly
regret it when the 'tea-bag-
gers' and their ilk call for rev-
olution and they will. The
right to bear arms is no more
or less a right than is the
right to own a dog, some re-
strictions apply, like getting a
license. Okay. Moving on to
the complaints of this new
century
I, John Doe, do solemnly
swear to uphold the princi-
ples of a socialism-free soci-
ety and heretofore pledge my
word that I shall strictly ad-
here to the following:
I will complain about the
destruction of 1st Amend-
ment Rights in this country,
while I am duly being al-
lowed to exercise my 1st
Amendment Rights.
I will complain about the
destruction of my 2nd
Amendment Rights in this
country, while I am duly
being allowed to exercise my
2nd Amendment rights by
legally and brazenly bran-
dishing unconcealed
firearms in public.
I will foreswear the time-
honored principles of fair-
ness, decency, and respect by
screaming unintelligible
platitudes regarding tyranny,
Nazi-ism, Fascism, Commu-
nism and Socialism at public


town halls and gathering.
Also, I pledge to eliminate
all government intervention
in my life. I will abstain from
the use of and participation
in any socialist goods and
services including but not
limited to the following:
/ Social Security
/ Medicare/Medicaid
/ State Children's Health
Insurance Programs (SCHIP)

Seeing red about red light traffic cameras


BOB REICHMAN
Sumter County Times
I have to admit it. I've
turned a bit red about all
these red light cameras being
erected at more and more in-
tersections throughout the
land.
No, I'm not mad because
I've fallen prey to them. I
haven't been sent a ticket
showing my vehicle cruising
through a red light.
But that doesn't mean it
couldn't happen.
I admit it. I've gone
through red lights.
You probably have too.
Here's where these new
cameras get me hot.
I would venture to say that
many of us go through red
lights and we're very careful
and cautious drivers. When it
happens, and it only happens
rarely with me, it's the result
of a bad and instantaneous
judgment call.
The light changes when
you are at a really odd posi-
tion to stop or continue.
Sometimes, you stop quickly
to adhere to the changing
light color. Sometimes, it's
with the fear that it's such a
fast stop that the guy behind
you will crash right into you.
Sometimes, you end up going
through the red light because
you just can't process or
make a stop that fast or you
feel you're actually safer
than making a drastic stop.
It happens. Granted, it's a
very dangerous situation, but
it happens.
What I don't like about
these cameras is they penal-
ize good drivers along with
the bad ones. There's no law


enforcement officer to plead
your case to, no officer to ac-
tually see what happened.
That's what bugs me.
Now I know there's plenty
of support for these cameras
and obviously, local govern-
ment agencies who have im-
plemented them are raking
in big dollars from the tick-
ets.
But to me, it just seems
like an easy way of collecting
money without providing a
necessary and valuable step
in the process, a law enforce-
ment officer.
Now a state bill is being
proposed supporting the
cameras.
Here's some recent
thoughts from the AAA Auto
Club South about the bill:
AAA supports the use of
red light cameras for the
safety of all roadway users
and to complement uni-
formed police officers in
their traffic law enforcement
duties. But a bill (CS/CS/HB
325) now awaiting action by
Gov Charlie Crist stops far
short of achieving that goal.
In a detailed letter delivered
to the Governor late last
week, AAA requested he use
his veto pen on the measure.
"This bill was not carefully
crafted and omits several
provisions and safeguards
that were important to maxi-
mizing traffic safety benefits
and ensuring consistency
and integrity of traffic law
enforcement principles,"
said Kevin Bakewell, AAA
Auto Club South, senior vice
president. "The fact that only
10 percent of the fine rev-
enue is to be used for public
safety and health purposes


clearly shows that this legis-
lation was more about rais-
ing money than improving
traffic safety."
If it becomes law, the bill
will represent a major depar-
ture from some of the most
basic principles of traffic law
enforcement. First, the ticket
would be issued not to the
driver of the vehicle but the
registered owner, who may or
may not have been the driver.
The driver should be respon-
sible for obeying traffic laws
no matter what vehicle he or
she is driving. Second, there
are no points assessed if a
driver is ticketed for running
a red light via the use of a
Red Light Camera, yet there
are 4 points assessed if a
driver is ticketed for running
a red light via the observation
of a law enforcement officer
Clearly running a red light is
very dangerous in either sce-
nario, so the consequences
should be the same. And fi-
nally, the automatic issuance
of a traffic ticket presumes
guilt and requires the owner
to prove his or her innocence.
"Red Light Cameras can
play an important role in
helping our law enforcement
officers improve traffic
safety, but we need to make
sure that we get the rules and
regulations governing their
use right the first time," said
Bakewell. "With the likeli-
hood of at least one Special
Session upcoming, there is
no reason that these con-
cerns can't be addressed."
In contrast to recommen-
dations made by the Federal
Highway Administration, the
National Highway Traffic


Safety Administration and
AAA, the adopted version of
the bill does not require that
an engineering study be con-
ducted before installing Red
Light Cameras at an intersec-
tion nor does it require that
other traffic engineering and
safety improvements be con-
sidered. Ajoint pilot program
conducted by AAA Michigan
and Detroit traffic engineers
in 1999 produced a 47 per-
cent decrease in crashes and
a 50 percent reduction in in-
juries over two years in the
four demonstration projects
simply by making rather
basic and traditional traffic
engineering and design im-
provements.
The bill lacks a definition
for a "traffic infraction en-
forcement officer" leaving
open the possibility that em-
ployees of the camera vendor
might be used to make ticket
decisions, and it does not to-
tally ensure that camera com-
panies will not be paid based
on the number of traffic cita-
tions issued. It prohibits an
"individual" from receiving
payment on such a commis-
sion basis but an important
amendment changing "indi-
vidual" to "person" failed. By
state law, "person" includes
individuals and corporations,
while "individual" does not
include corporations. Com-
mission payments whether
to individuals or companies-
based on the number of tick-
ets issued is nothing more
than a modern version of the
long-ago-outlawed "fee sys-
tem" where each local gov-
ernment official received a
share of the traffic fine.
Throughout the 2010 leg-


islative session and in previ-
ous years AAA has attempted
to work with legislative spon-
sors to ensure that the above
issues and others were ad-
dressed. While the incorpo-
ration of language to
maximize traffic safety bene-
fits was embraced by the
Senate, the request to do so
fell largely on deaf ears in
the House.
"If Governor Crist does, in-
deed, veto CS/CS/HB 325, we
ask that he do so with the in-
tent of bringing this issue
back before the legislature at
the next Special Session. We
need statewide uniformity
for the operation of Red

Light Cameras so that mo-
torists have a clear expecta-
tion and consistent
consequences regardless of
jurisdiction," said Bakewell.
AAA contends that the
dozens of Florida cities and
counties currently operating
Red Light Camera programs
are doing so in clear viola-
tion of a 2006 Attorney Gen-
eral Opinion finding that
traffic citations could not be
issued unless the violation
was committed in the pres-
ence of a law enforcement of-
ficer. Enforcing traffic laws
through enactment of local
ordinances the strategy
adopted by the cities and
counties that operate such
programs- is still a clear vio-
lation of the Opinion's intent.


but instead agreed to attend
the Iranians.
In Pakistan just this week,
Obama gave this vital ally a
"public slap on the wrist" by
denying to them the same nu-
clear deal he had given to
India, insuring their military
will cease their support of
our troops.
In Afghanistan, Obama has
engaged in a public war with
President Karzi who became
so enraged he threatened
this past week to change his
allegiance from Americans to
the Taliban (but he didn't).
In Israel, Obama has so de-
moralized and demonized
our most important ally, that
Prime Minister Netanyhu
announced he will not attend
Obama's Global Nuclear
Summit (he kept his word
and didn't attend).
In Brazil, Obama ordered
Defense Secretary Robert
Gates to sign a historic de-
fense agreement with this
South American nuclear
power whose President Lulu
da Silva, has praised Iran
President Mahmoud Ah-
madinejad; slammed Israel
and announced he will visit
Iran next month.
All of these action, plus too
many more to mention in this
column, has Russian military
analysts warning that Obama
has pushed our world toward
total global war, more than
any single leader since Nazi
Adolph Hitler, to which Rus-
sia and China are preparing
to confront to stop the Amer-
icans. These nations feel
Americans having to live
under Obama's "regime" are
unfortunate for the radical
socialism Obama has pushed
upon us. They refer to new
reports that show in under
two years Obama and his co-
horts have succeeded in
making nearly 50 percent of
our people support the other
50 percent who aren't work-
ing.
Now if Sarkozy's grim and
dire assessment of Obama is
true or not, we have no
knowledge, but it is impor-
tant to note that nearly all of
the longstanding allies of the
U.S. that Obama has turned
his back on and his contin-
ued appeasement of others is
growing evidence of maybe
he is ready to "throw all his
marbles" in the ring in one
fell swoop. They even note
his authorization ofthe many
"Blu" bombs that were sent
to Diego Garcia in the Indian
Ocean. These are the ones
mentioned in this column
last week.
There is also recent infor-
mation available stating
many Americans feel similar
to the way Sarkozy feels and
the reasons are there for our
review, discussion and con-
sideration and after further
vetting they may appear in
next week's column!

Featured couple has been married 55 years


'4 Ja n
-- ljl Liberio

SPRUCE CREEK


W ell after putting in
over 200 St. Augus-
tine plugs and re-
seeding most of our lawn,
the rest is up to Mother Na-
ture. I am sure by June or
July the weeds will have
filled in the bare spots very
nicely.
Feature of the week
Another featured couple
in Spruce Creek North who
are married more than 50
years, 55 to be exact, are
Ann and Bill Miranda.
Bill Miranda was born in
Larchmont, New York, and
had one brother and two
sisters. He went to St. Au-
gustine elementary school
and Mamaroneck High
school in Mamaroneck,
New York, and graduated
in 1948. He attended col-
lege night school until he
joined the Navy in 1953. He
married Ann Dorigo on
April 24, 1955. They had
met in high school. Bill got
a job as a manager of a


chain supermarket. He
went back to college night
school to attain his Masters
degree in marketing.
Ann was born in Ma-
maroneck and had two sis-
ters. She attended
elementary and high
school there and graduated
in 1949. After graduation
she did secretarial work at
numerous places until
their children were born.
One son, Bill, Jr, was born
in 1957 and one daughter,
Julie, was born in 1963.
Later they became grand-
parents to four grandchil-
dren, two boys and two
girls.
In 1979 Bill was trans-
ferred to Houston, Texas,
and they remained there
until 1993 when they re-
tired to Florida, settling in
Spruce Creek North. Bill is
one of the famous Pancake
People, making up the pan-
cakes once a month at the
SCN clubhouse (in the
Navy he was the ship's
cook).
Bill used to play golf but
his true love (next to Ann of
course) is belonging to the
Master Gardeners for more
than 15 years (Marion
County Ext. Service).
He loves planting things
and watching them grow.
He also enjoys going to
garage sales.
Ann used to be in the
chorus and doing crafts.
She volunteers at Prestige

and Bill are very proud of
them both.
Julie and Bill Jr, should
be very proud of such won-
derful people called their
"parents." Spruce Creek
North is very happy to have
them!

Some arresting stories for Police Week


Dick
Frank


PUN


Today marks the end
of National Police
Week. We usually
see police as we travel
along State Road 200, the
backbone of the corridor
that plays a large part in
our daily activities. Many
travel between home and
stores while others use the
highway as a way between
home and work.
We should always be
courteous to other drivers,
even if they are wrong; it's
better than to be dead
right. Traveling down Pun
Alley gets us to some ar-
resting stories.

Cover Up
Jen was speeding along
Highway 200 on her way
home from shopping when
the police car pulled up
next to her.
"Hey you! Pull over!"
shouted the traffic cop. Jen
complied, and the judge
later fined her 65 dollars.
She went home in great
anxiety lest her husband,
who always examined her
checkbook, should learn of
the incident. The inspira-
tion struck and she marked
the check stub, "One
pullover, $65."
Uniform Reply
A tourist asked a man in
uniform, "Are you a police-
man?"
"No, I am an undercover
detective."
"So why are you in uni-
form?"
"Today is my day off."
Experienced Witness
The officer reported to
the sergeant about having
no luck with the witness.
"Did you browbeat him,
yell at him, and ask him
every question you could
come up with?" asked the
sergeant.
"I certainly did."

Light Headed
A policeman pulled a
blonde over after she'd
been driving the wrong
way on a one-way street.


The cop asked, "Do you
know where you're going?"
"I don't know for sure,"
answered the driver, "but
wherever it is, I must be
late. Everybody's coming
back already!"
With Great Tact
Driving down 200 a man
had to swerve to avoid a
box that had fallen from a
truck. Seconds later, a po-
liceman pulled him over
and recovered the box.
When he opened the box, it
contained large upholstery
tacks. "I'm sorry sir," the
policeman told the driver,
"but I'm going to have to
write you a ticket."
Amazed, the driver
asked, "For what?"
The policeman replied,
"Tacks evasion."
No Charge
Policeman: "I'm afraid
that I'm going to have to
lock you up for the night."
Man: "What's the charge
officer?"
Policeman: "Oh, there's


no charge. It's all part of
the service.
Prisoner Help
Social Worker: "And
what is your name, my
good man?"
Convict: "9994."
Social Worker: "But
that's not your real name."
Convict: "Naw, that's
only my pen name."
Down and Out
After a car crash the
driver was lying injured at
the side of the road. "Don't
worry," said a policeman,
'A Red Cross nurse is com-
ing to attend to you."
"Oh no," groaned the vic-
tim, "couldn't I have a
blonde, cheerful one?"

Just read an article in the
magazine "Experience
Life" called Tolerate


Less. The idea put forth
made a lot of sense to me. I
think others might also agree
with this concept.
The woman discussed was
feeling overwhelmed. She
felt that her daily life was be-
coming more draining than
energizing. Although we are
retired, many of us could re-
late to this. She decided to
eliminate her "tolerations."
They were things she just put
up with such as irritations
and distractions.
It's suggested that we fig-
ure out what they are and
eliminate them. This will en-
able us to have more time
and energy for the pursuits

that matter most to us. It's
easier if we resolve the
smaller tolerations and even-
tually uncover and eliminate
the larger ones. The more of
them we rid ourselves of, the
calmer we will become.

introduced Harry tells us that his fa-
Corn Hole, vorite activity is to put to-


gether a program every
couple of years for our vet-
erans, on Veterans Day He
says, "All of our travels, all
of our experiences, are be-
cause of a freedom that
someone ultimately paid
for, and we must always
strive to honor them for
their service and sacri-
fice."
Harry was born and
grew up in the Chicago
area. He writes: "Having
been from a large family, I
found it necessary to work
and help my parents finan-
cially rather than to stay in
and finish school. I de-
cided to enlist into the
army and hopefully learn a
skill that would be benefi-
cial for my future." He was
assigned to Fort Gordon,
Georgia, and learned how
to install and repair tele-
phone carrier and radio
equipment. His first as-
signment was in Korea
where he had the chance
to finish his school. "I even
received a diploma from
my former high school
which made me proud."
Other assignments in-
cluded various state-side
tours and tours in Vietnam
and Europe.
"During an assignment
at Fort Benning, I decided
that there was only one
way to get over my fear of
heights. So I volunteered
for jump school. After
three weeks of training and
five parachute jumps, I


was happily wearing my
wings, but still feared
heights." His final assign-
ment included recruiting
for the Army's Security
Agency in New Orleans,
Chicago, Lansing, Michi-
gan, and Dothan, Alabama.
He retired from the mili-
tary as a first sergeant in
1986.
He met his wife, Lorna,
during an assignment in
Chicago, and they decided
on Florida as "a great
place to call home after
leaving the Army" They
lived in Bradenton for 14
years.
He worked for an apart-
ment complex as a on-call
repair person. From there
he decided to go into law
enforcement and was a
deputy for seven years. "I
decided to try another kind
of pest control, beside the
hours were much better. So
I got into the pest control
business, for another seven
years. After all my former
experiences, I was best
known as 'the bug man.'
I still vividly recall kids
yelling out, 'Mom, the bug
man is here'."
He had the opportunity
to become an agent for Air-
Tran Airlines in Savannah,
Georgia. While at AirTran,
he was authorized to move
every man and woman in
the military uniform to
first class.
Missing Florida, they
moved back to Jack-


sonville, and Harry devel-
oped a new skill in the air
conditioning business.
Moving to Ocala, he found
work building and racing
"go" carts. Harry is profi-
cient with computers and
mostly self taught having
built his personal com-
puter himself
Harry writes, "Having
moved to Palm Cay in 2004,
we knew we had finally
found our home." We are
lucky to have Harry shar-
ing with us his many tal-
ents which make our lives
better and more enjoyable
in Palm Cay, a great neigh-
bor and friend.
Mother's Day event en-
joyed by all
Thanks to the hard work
of the Flamingo group, a
dedicated group of Palm
Cay volunteers, Nancy
Solomon and Ada Mu-
rawski, the Mother's Day
event which took place on
Saturday May 8th was a
great success. More than
120 people attended the
event which included a
program of songs and
poems, along with humor
and fond memories. One
viewer said that "the pro-
gram made you laugh, cry,
and was totally enjoyable."
Those in attendance
raved about the food, in-
cluding a dessert that was
absolutely delectable and
was created by Margie
Nielson, Kay Gramling,
Marilyn Johnson, Joy


Braunscheidel and Angela
Krekorian, who also
worked hours decorating
and preparing the meal.
Jean Selent made jewelry
for door prizes. Every
woman in attendance re-
ceived a special long
stemmed pink carnation.
The servers were Alan
Johnson, Charlie Reed,
Ray Lloyd, Charlie
McAleese and John Kreko-
rian.

Guest speaker on
dog trading
We had our April meeting
at the dog park where Judy
Walker, a dog trainer with 40
years experience, gave us
some training tips. Here are
a few of her suggestions that
can make training more
pleasant and safe for you and
your companion:
Be careful when walking
or training your dog with a
flexible lead. They're the
ones that have a hard plastic
handle that houses the leash
that expands when your dog
walks ahead of you. If you
drop the leash, or don't have
good control over it, the hard
plastic handle can recoil and
can hit the dog's body from
behind, frightening him. This
has caused dogs to run in ter-
ror as it keeps hitting them,
and in some cases the dogs
have run into traffic and
been hit by a car. Perhaps a
regular nylon or leather
leash is better for you.
Never train off lead when
starting a new command.
This is a safety issue. You will
not have proper control over
your pet since you don't know
how he will respond to a new
command.
Never repeat commands.
This is also a safety issue.
Your dog can hear you the
first time, and there's no
need to yell either. If your
dog is running into harm's
way, he or she needs to be


able to answer a come, down,
stop or sit command on the
first try
Never train when you're
upset. If you're frustrated
with your pet at a particular
time, or just in a foul mood
yourself, save training for an-
other day Training is sup-
posed to be a positive
experience for both of you, so
all the negativity is counter-
productive and a waste of
time.
Use inflections in your
voice don't speak in a mon-
otone. Dogs are attuned to
our voices and the change in
pitch helps them understand
our intent. Higher tones are
best for play, praise and call-
ing their name or to come to
you. Lower tones are best for
the sit, stay and down com-
mands.
Be consistent. Your dog
will not understand what you
want from him if you aren't
clear and keep changing
your mind. You let him on the
couch or bed on Tuesdays
but not on Wednesdays. You
expect your pet not to beg at
the table when just yesterday
you gave him part of your
dinner We often don't realize
the effect of our behavior on
our dogs, but we really do
need to be more self aware.
You don't expect to work
without pay, and neither
does your dog. No, it won't
help if you slip him a five -
his currency is praise. Praise
is whatever he likes the best:
your voice, some treats, a
play session or a snuggle.

an auspicious event they
might want to commemo-
rate. Survivors often donate
rescued Torahs from the
Holocaust but these Torahs
are often in bad repair and
are kept for symbolic pur-
poses and rarely used.
Once a congregation has
J u di the necessary funds and
S i e a I has purchased a Torah,
then a special Torah dedi-
cation ceremony is in order.
Here is where things get in-
teresting. Few Jews ever ex-
perience such an event
unless they belong to a
Jewish group newer congregation and the
ople get to- ceremony itself is not often
Sto form a performed. So, how does
one of the one go about dedicating a
y plan for is new Torah?
n of a new As with many rituals in
ve Books of Judaism, there is symbol-
.1 form, con- ism involved. In the case of
d to Jews.) the Torah ceremony, the
:akes many idea is that of a wedding,
en years of i.e. the congregation of Is-
ause hand rael "marries" itself to the
s can cost Torah in the form of a sym-
ollars. Some- bolic exchange of vows.
ngregation is These vows are promises to
;regant will cherish the sacred object,
and donate keep it safe and to use and
r inmemory read from it on the ap-
oved one or pointed times in the Jewish


calendar. These vows are
said by a representative of
the congregation and are
read by the rabbi or spiri-
tual leader while standing
under a chuppah, wedding
canopy
While a Torah is a highly
venerated object to Jews, it
is not worshipped nor are
statues made of it. This
would be a form of idolatry
and strictly forbidden in
Jewish practice. The wed-
ding ceremony, therefore, is
a perfect way to show love
and devotion.
Other elements of the
dedication ceremony in-
clude readings, songs and
psalms, which have refer-
ences to Torah and its
teachings. If the Torah was
donated, the person who
donated the Torah might be
called up and be recog-
nized. Many times, the story
of how the Torah was res-
cued if it were a Holocaust
find or how the Torah came
to be donated would be in-
cluded in the ceremony
A knowledgeable Jewish
layperson or Jewish profes-
sional can read from the
new scroll. Traditionally,


one cannot make a blessing
over something and then
not use the object. There-
fore, the portion of the
week can be read and stud-
ied from the newly dedi-
cated scroll. Members from
the congregation are called
up to make a blessing be-
fore the designated person
reads from the scroll.
After the reading, as in
any Torah service, the
Torah is paraded around
through the congregation
for veneration and then re-
turned to its proper place in
the Holy Ark, a kind of cab-
inet that houses the Torahs
used by the congregation.
Congregations often add
their own special mark to
the occasion with the addi-
tion of special songs or
readings specifically writ-
ten for the event and others
may add other ceremonies
that are specific to the dif-
ferent branches of Judaism.
To end the ceremony,
some Jewish groups sound
a loud blast on the shofar, or
ram's horn. This ritual ob-
ject, associated with the
High Holy Days, was used
in ancient times to an-


nounce events. I recall sev-
eral years ago when Temple
Beth Shalom of Ocala cele-
brated 30 years in Ocala, a
shofar was blown during
the gala event to signify this
milestone.
On May 16, newly formed
Congregation Beth Israel of
Ocala will be dedicating a
new Torah. This once in a
lifetime event will feature
many of the elements men-
tioned here. It is of special
significance because it is
the first time in 35 years
since a new Jewish congre-

The mysterious wizardry of gadgetry


Rev.
James L.
Snyder


OUT To


When it comes to
gadgets just call
me Mr. How-in-
the-World-Does-This-
Work. I fully understand
that our world runs on
gadgets. According to
some, we owe a great deal
to the gadgets of this
world whatever they may
be. I just hope my credit is
good.
That being so, let me
just say how much I dis-
like and distrust and am
filled with disgust at gadg-
ets of all kinds. Primarily,
because I have no idea
how they work Of course,
I have no idea of how I
work, or even if I do work


Occasionally the Gra-
cious Mistress of the Par-
sonage will come upon
Yours Truly and ask a sim-
ple question. "What are
you doing right now?"
It's really not the ques-
tion so much as how she
asks the question that
bothers me. Whenever I
tell her I am working, she
sarcastically tosses her
hair to one side and sim-
ply says, "Ha," and walks
away. Unfortunately, I
have no hair to toss to one
side. I think she does it
just to exacerbate me.
But getting back to the
mysterious world of gad-
getry, it is very hard to go
without running into some
kind of a gadget The over-
whelming assumption is
that everybody knows
what a particular gadget
is, how it works and what
it is supposed to do. I
think that is too much to
assume.
Whatever happened to
the good old days when
you did not need a gadget
to do anything? Oh, how I
long for that utopia of yes-
teryear Reading my Bible
thoroughly I have found
nothing resembling a


gadget of any description
to be found in heaven.
Amen.
Drive down a busy
street in any town and you
will find the driver in the
car opposite to you fid-
dling with some gadget in
his hand called a cell
phone. Drivers are always
texting or talking or what-
ever else you can do on a
cell phone. I have all I can
do to navigate my car
away from those people
focused on some kind of a
gadget Where will it ever
stop?
Not only in cars, but
walking in the shopping
mall has become quite a
hazardous venture. No-
body is paying attention to
where they are going be-
cause everybody is on a
cell phone. I have run into
several people, none of
which stopped to say, "I'm
sorry," but kept right on
walking and talking as
though nothing ever hap-
pened. They are absolute
slaves to that cell phone.
Just the other day I was
driving during rush hour
downtown and happened
to look at the car next to
me. Driving the car was a


woman with a cigarette in
one hand and a cell phone
in the other hand talking
to beat the band. And boy,
would I like to beat that
band. It is a good thing she
had only two hands, good-
ness knows what else she
would be doing. I had a
momentary panic attack,
not knowing what was
going to happen or if she
would swerve into my
lane without knowing
what she was doing.
But cell phones are just
one of the many gadgets
that have infiltrated into
the sphere of human ac-
tivity.
In an office supply store
recently I happened to no-
tice one of those new
iPads. I must confess that
curiosity got the best of
me. I had heard a lot
about this gadget and I
wanted to see how it
worked. Supposedly, and I
do not believe everything
I'm told, this iPad had
thousands ofbooks loaded
onto it. I held it in my
hand and I could hardly
believe that it contained
so much material. But,
who am I to question the
latest sales gimmick.


Looking at it I tried to
find the on and off switch.
There has to be some way
to turn this blasted thing
on. Finally, a salesperson
come up and said quite
cheerfully, "Can I help
you?"
"I can't seem to find the
on switch," I said.
"There isn't any," he
said with a rather smirk
on his map.
I looked at him quizzi-
cally and he just smiled.
"All you do," he said like
some stuck up Ivy League
college professor, "is
touch the screen."
I looked at him as
though he had lost all his
marbles to a first-grade
champion marble shooter
Everybody, and I mean
everybody, knows to turn
something on you need to
have a switch, some kind
of button you push to get
the gadget running.
I looked at the iPad and
then looked back to him
and then I touched the
screen just to show the
salesperson that he did
not have a clue as to what
time of day it was. To my
consternation as soon as I
touched the screen the


blasted thing came on. I
did not look at the sales-
person but I knew, deep
down in my soul, I knew
he was laughing rather
sarcastically at me.
Between cell phones
and iPads, I am not faring
too well in this gadget
crazy world. Sometimes it
is rather frustrating.
Fortunately, God is not
impressed with gadgets.
The simplicity of the
gospel message is found in
what Paul says. "For by
grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not
of yourselves: it is the gift
of God: Not of works, lest
any man should boast."
(Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV).
Preoccupied with
works, a person runs a
great risk of missing the
amazing grace of God.

Learn to Fly Day to be on Saturday -


The first Learn to Fly Day
is being held across America
on May 15 at over 300 flight
schools and organizations.
They will offer tours of flight
schools, a presentation that
answers the mysteries of ob-
taining a sport, commercial,
or private pilot's license;
and creating endless possi-
bilities and options in order
to pursue a new hobby or ca-
reer in aviation.
Ocala Aviation Services
Inc. is opening its doors on
May 15. The seminar con-
sists of a 30- to 40-minute in-
formational presentation on
learning to fly along with a
tour of their school and time
to talk with flight instructors
and pilots.
During this Great Reces-
sion, people have cut back
and put their interests on
the back burner as they tried
to work through it. There is
a general stereotype that fly-


Free Tickets in Your Area!
Learn To Fly Day


ing an airplane is only for
the rich. A new type of pilot
certificate called Sport Pilot
has changed the traditional
notion that one must spend
a fortune to be a pilot. Earn-
ing this certificate can cost
as little as $3,500 and air-
planes are easily available
for rent, as most pilots do not
own their own airplane, and
flying clubs and flight
schools exist to allow pilots
to own a share of a plane,
thereby reducing the cost of
flying.
One man's dream of be-
coming a pilot was realized
after he discovered the
Sport Pilot certificate. A
medical condition that
caused Michael Combs to
technically die barred him

With a renewed life and a
drive to achieve his dream
after his life was almost
taken from him, Combs
earned his Sport Pilot cer-
tificate and on April 8 he
took off from Salina, Kansas,
making 135 stops in all 50
states over 40 days, setting at
least six world records in the
most technologically ad-
vanced light sport aircraft
from Remos. Called the
Flight for the Human Spirit,
Michael Combs wants to in-
spire people to follow their
dreams, even if they're be-
yond the sky.

The Other Land of Oz


Ro g
I Patterson


STILL IN MY


unny how one thing
can lead to another
After recently re-
ceiving my marching or-
ders from Citizen editor,
Jim Clark, I was chatting
with office manager,
Pauline Moore, who men-
tioned she commuted
from Crystal River. So I
asked Pauline if she knew
of any good seafood
restaurants way over that-
away. And that's how I
learned there's a tiny
town well off the beaten
track by the name of
Ozello.
To find Ozello, take your
favorite route to U.S. 19 in
Crystal River I went west
on State Road 200 to
County Road 491 on
through Beverly Hills.
Just beyond the Black Di-
amond in Lecanto, turn
right on County Road 486
and right again on State
Road 44 to U.S. 19. Drive
south on U.S. 19 for maybe
three miles to the traffic
light at County Road 494
with the Ozello Trail
street sign. You're only
about 34 miles from the
Corridor. (Remember I
told you we start from
Marion Landing, right
across the highway from
Queen of Peace church, so
all mileages begin there.)
Ozello Trail is ex-
tremely windy ... I mean
extreme twisties and
splendid turnies ... so it
can be a beautiful drive if
you turn off your cruise
control and stay at 30 to 35
m.p.h. Motorcycle or
sports car drivers will find
it a hoot to enjoy in the
lower gears. (Ozello Trail
even merits route listings
in motorcycle Web sites
such as Sundaymorning-
drives.com, openroad-
journey.com and
motorsycleroad.com!) Just
a mile or two west of U.S.
19, you'll discover a differ-
ent world of marshes and
palm treed savannahs.
The horizon either way
you look is much like the
backgrounds seen in
travel magazine pictures
of African tourists photo-
graphing lions, giraffes
and such from atop their
safari trucks. But, here in
Florida, Africa's savan-
nahs are simply called
hammocks.
Depending upon which
map you look at, beautiful
downtown Ozello is either
on or near South John
Brown Drive, the first side
road you'll come to, and
pretty much invisible
wherever it may be. Never


mind. The majority of res-
idents and business activ-
ities will be found across
Black Creek on others of
the half dozen connected
islands.
Just keep on puttering
along past the Ozello Civic
Association, the Ozello
Baptist church and The
Island Outpost on your
right I suggest you stop at
The Island Outpost and
find yourself a copy of La
Florida Realty's free cata-
log of local real estate list-
ings. This fine document
contains a map of Ozello
Trail that's good enough to
locate every side and back
road along the way.
The Island Outpost was
just finishing up serving
breakfast customers when
I looked in; it's only open
for that and lunch. You'll
find it half general store
and souvenir shop, half
restaurant and part real
estate office, no matter
that description doesn't
add up correctly. Continu-
ing west on Ozello Trail,
the Ozello Fire Station
No. 1 will be on the left.
And you've just gone
through the business dis-
trict On up the road, you'll
go by Peck's Old Port Cove
restaurant and blue crab
farm just before dead-
ending at Sanddollar
Lane. Take a right, then a


left on North Pirates Point
Road and you'll wind up
at Crystal River Preserve
State Park and be just 10
miles west of U.S. 19. Get
out and stretch your legs
with a look at the boat
ramp and shaded picnic
tables. You'll also see a
poster announcing this
whole area is part of St.
Martin's Marsh Aquatic
Preserve.
According to newspaper
archives, things were
jumping back in the mid-
1980s when Ozello Civic
Association members
gathered to play cards
every Tuesday afternoon
and Miss Beverly's exer-
cise classes held forth on
Tuesday and Thursday
evenings. These days the
action is still Friday
evening Bingo and shuffle
board goings on during
the winter season, peak-
ing for the Ozello Keys Pi-
oneers Days to be held
Nov. 27 and 28 this year.
An Ozello history display
will be prominent, with
resident artists and
crafters offering their
wares.
If you drive over on a
weekend, you'll find
Ozello's gift shop out on
South Fishcreek Point off
Estuary Drive will proba-
bly be open. It is promoted
as "A Hidden Treasure."

dusty window, I saw paint-
ings, crafts and other local
stuff are apparently for
sale. No clues, however, as
to whether the proprietor
is a genuine Ozello de-
scendent or just likes
using the name.
A third restaurant, ap-
propriately named The
Other Place, is off Water-
man Point on South Rip-
ple Path. But it was closed
and I suspect that might
be quite often when the
road is under water
Fishing is a serious part
of Ozello life and we saw
several free boat ramps.
The most popular, judging
by number of cars and
trucks parked, was off
South John Brown Road,
so maybe fishing is better
from off that ramp than
others. And his mail box
announces John actually
does live at the end of this
road.
Altogether, there are 29
side roads running off
Ozello Trail, plus 36 more
roads, courts, lanes, points
and whatnot branching
out even further. All roads
are eventually dead-end
at some kind of water-
front, but ample turn-
arounds make exploring
easy. Dwellings range
from beached travel trail-
ers and motor homes to
semi-mansions tagged


from low six to almost
seven digit prices. You can
also find vacant or "hardly
used" waterfront lots from
the thirties up to six num-
bers for acreage with
views. Most homes appear
to be unoccupied winter
vacation homes and a few
are offered as summer
rentals. The majority face
or back up to water, be it
on creeks, canals or be-
tween islands. Newer con-
struction has been built
on required stilts or pil-
ings, while earlier houses
still at ground level are
preserved on faith alone.
Nevertheless, several
showing many years of
wear and tear were still
standing and occupied, so
the storm damage has evi-
dently been minimal.
One Ozello landmark I
really wanted to see was
Ozello Palms Resort and
its unique golf course. The
local Web site
www.ozello.com describes
a course playing 17,000
yards from the back tees
with par at 106. Said to be
just beyond the University
of Ozello campus, the re-
sort should have been
easy to spot But I got my-
self turned around once
too often on all those side
and back roads, so never
could find it.
You can bring a picnic
basket or choose between


Pecks and The Island Out-
post for lunch. We se-
lected Peck's for the
variety of seafood and
quite a bit more ambi-
ence. My co-pilot could
barely get around her gen-
erous serving of garlic
shrimp. I went for a Peck's
Platter sampling lightly
fried fish, scallops and
oysters; one of several
tasty and very filling
multi-choice seafood
dishes. And if you're into
blue crabs, Peck's also
farms and serves up their
own in a variety of ways.
On a combination dock
and deck behind the
restaurant are two large
watery "corrals," teeming
with squirmy blues. Some
were surprisingly canni-
balistic, but that activity
was too icky to share with
photos.
While it's only 44-miles
to the western end of
Ozello Trail, we enjoyed
several more hours and
miles discovering where
many of those side roads
went. That took the car's
trip odometer up to 102-
miles by the time I drove
into our garage at the end
of this day trip. It was a
most unusual, picturesque
and appetizing visit to the
other Land of Oz. And
Pauline Moore is familiar
with Ozallo is because her
mother was a resident.

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

VA updates online Application

for Health Benefits


Veterans will find it eas-
ier and faster to apply for
their health care benefits
now that the Department
of Veterans Affairs has up-
dated its online Form 10-
10EZ, "Application for
Health Benefits."
"VA is committed to tap-
ping into the best that
technology has to offer to
ensure veterans receive
the benefits they have
earned," said Secretary of
Veterans Affairs Eric K.
Shinseki. "We continue to
look for new ways to im-
prove access to care and
benefits."
This revised online ap-
plication provides en-
hanced navigation
features that make it eas-
ier and faster for veterans
to apply for their health
care benefits. This new
version also allows veter-
ans to save a copy of the
completed form for their
personal records.
The most significant en-
hancement allows veter-
ans to save their
application to their local
desktop and return to the
application at any time
without having to start
over. Previously, veterans
had to complete the form
in a single session.
This updated online
form, along with the re-
vised VA Form 10-10EZ,
reduces the collection of
information from Veter-
ans by eliminating some
questions.
In addition, there are
minor changes to simplify
the wording of questions
and provide clarity in the
instructions. Further en-
hancements to the online
application are expected
to be delivered in incre-
ments throughout 2010.
Veterans may complete
or download the 10-10EZ


form at the VA health eli-
gibility website at
https://www. 1010ez.med.va
.gov/sec/vha/1010ez. Veter-
ans may also contact VA at

bility website at

ity.

LETTERS
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8

Days of recognition?
Sunday, May 9 being
Mother's Day, I decided to
"take a look" at what other
days have been given recog-
nition by county, state and/or
government, and I came
away with quite a revelation.
I found that in 1952, Presi-
dent Truman established
one day a year as (national)
Prayer Day Then in 1988,
President Reagan desig-
nated the first Thursday in
May, on a yearly basis, as the
National Day of Prayer. Then
in June of 2007, presidential
candidate Barack Obama
stated that the USA was no


longer a Christian nation,
and later as president, can-
celed the 21st annual Na-
tional Day of Prayer
ceremony at the White
House under the premise of
"not wanting to offend any-
one." However, on Sept. 25th,
2009, a National Day of
Prayer for the Muslim reli-
gion took place at Capitol
Hill, alongside the White
House, where 50,000 Mus-
lims went through their per-
formances of prayer.
I am left with an opinion
that it doesn't matter if Chris-
tians are offended by this
event as obviously Christians
don't count any more in re-
gards to faithful beliefs as
they chose. I further went to
a website http://www.islam-
oncapitolhill.com/ where


what I read and thought were
confirmed. I fully understand
the concept of separation of
religion (church) and govern-
ment, but if someone would
point out the intended direc-
tion of this great nation
under this administration, I
would appreciate it.
Art Ippolito
Ocala
Reading the bill
Dig Dig. Shovel. Shovel.
Whew! Up to my knees in
new taxes, and I am only
through the first 500 hundred
pages of the HealthSCAM
bill. Two thousand pages to
go. Will I still be able to
breathe when I have fin-
ished, or, will I be totally
buried in taxes? If I am
buried, I will no longer have


a need for healthSCAM.
What is the point of it all?
That is the point. Get rid of
as many bodies, as fast as you
can. Bodies get sick, need
care, and cost money Who
needs them? We have to
make that artificial CBO
number fit. You can only ac-
commodate so many bodies
with those numbers. Soooo,
something has to go. Will it be
you? Or, the next guy? Are we
going to flip a coin to see who
stays, and who goes? Health-
SCAM is truly ghoulish, a
program not fit for man or
beast.
Excuse me, HealthSCAM
was never supposed to be
about health or care. The
purpose of HealthSCAM is
control by the illustrious
boomer boob cadre in the


White House. The deck of
cards is in their hands, and
they mean to shuffle the
cards according to their lik-
ing. They will dole out the
Aces, and the twos. What do
you think is in store for you?
Ace or two?
Me, I am selfish, I want an
ace, you can have the two.
Okey, dokey? What? You do
not want the two? Houston,
we have a problem.
There is one saving grace
in the HealthSCAM bill,
16,000 lucky individuals are
going to get positions spying
on their fellow citizens, and
those citizens get to pay for
the privilege. Are we that
kind, or, that stupid? Their
ten billion dollar price tag
could put quite a few ordi-


nary people to work. Who
should we spend the money
on: More bureaucrats, or, cit-
izens? You decide.
Every time some new de-
tail is discovered in the
HealthSCAM bill, things look
better, and better. I just can-
not wait for the darn thing to
kick in,(all that Obama free
stuff). How about you? As ad-
ditional insurance I plan to
pray I do not get sick, just in
case the lines are long, and
the waiting time lasts longer
than my illness, or, I die be-
fore my appointment time ar-
rives. Need to cover all
bases.
Free stuff, free stuff, bring
on the free stuff.
