Sheriff launches
text messages
for serious situations
The Marion County
Sheriff's Office (MCSO)
will now offer another op-
tion to reach crises-ready
professionals by texting a
message to 352-351-9111.
This new number is for se-
rious situations, but
should not be your first
option. In an emergency,
call 911. For non-emergen-
cies, call 352-732-9111. If
callers are in a situation
in which they cannot dial
911 to speak, they can now
text an urgent message to
the Communications Cen-
ter using this new number.
By providing this new
number, MCSO is embrac-
ing the latest evolving
technology in communica-
tion. These days, there are
more wireless phones in
use than land-line phones.
Therefore, there is a grow-
ing need to provide addi-
tional options for reaching
the Marion County Com-
munication Center.
MCSO is the first in the
state to provide this serv-
ice. The set-up costs were
less than $1,000 and the
monthly maintenance is
less than $50 per month.
MCSO has developed a
plan that is cost effective
and allows people to use
yet another resource to
reach MCSO during seri-
ous incidents.

Staff Writer
Depending on the location in
the county, the interests of the
public changes, Marion County's
Growth Management Director
Jimmy Massey has learned.
Massey held the public hear-
ings, in accordance with Florida
Statutes, to update the county's
comprehensive plan.
Two weeks ago residents of the
northwest section of the county
were interested in having areas of
farmland preserved and the rural
character of their neck of the
woods kept as rural.
Last Thursday, at the Freedom
Library, the public gathered to
talk about the State Road 200 area.
With many residents from the
Shady area, the area east of 1-75
toward the Greenway and 475-A,
Shady Road, discussion included
concerns of a proposed 1-75 inter-
change on Southwest 95th Avenue.

Golf event

benefits breast

cancer fight
It was a gorgeous day for a glorious
cause, the ninth annual "Rally for the
Cure" golf tournament at Royal Oaks
Golf Club on Thursday, May 6. This
event is sponsored by the Susan G.
Komen Foundation, a national breast
cancer awareness program.
Sixth-three participants wearing
pink golf attire drove off in golf carts
decorated with pink balloons, sup-
porting the foundation's mission to
help eradicate breast cancer. Each
golfer had four opportunities to win
hole-in-one prizes, including a 2010
Honda Accord. Greg Rothfeldt, presi-
dent and COO of Brandon Honda, pro-
vided the challenges and also
participated in the event. Alas, not one
of the participants' drives met the
challenge, but all were very grateful
for Mr Rothfeldt for the additional ex-
citement of the day Barb Davis
chaired the event.
The winning team was Elsa and
Dick Berbig, and Pat Salbert and Joan
Scholl. Closest to the pin were B.J.
Kassiter and Mike Madill.
Ball on the green for the women
were Barb Davis, Noreen Salo, Gigi
Bagg, Bette Johnson, Patty Waddell,
Rae Stover, Janet Tennent, Joanne
Morris, Mary Kay Frandsen, Elsa
Berbig, Sylvia Zappia, Lynn Houghton,
Carol Allison, Gayle Feeman, Joan
O'Brien and Claire Pruneau; for the
men, Ken Frandsen and Roger Bagg.
The golf bag door prize was won by
Gayle Feeman.


Beth Davis, chairperson for the Rally for the Cure" golf tourna-
ment at Royal Oaks Golf Club, introduces Greg Rothfeldt, presi-
dent and COO of Brandon Honda. He sponsored four
hole-in-one opportunities, with a prize of a 2010 Honda, at the
recent event.

Massey told the crowd of
about 30 people that with
the proposed interchange
not approved, the inter-
change would not be going
on the comprehensive
land-use map. Those con-
cerned about the proposal
expressed concerns an ad-
ditional interchange would
also bring a commerce des-
ignation to the area.
The Shady area is made
up on many horse farms,
and is near the Florida
Horse Park and Florida
Greenways. Much of the
Shady area has a land-use
designation of rural allow-
ing only one home per
every 10 acres.
In updating the compre-
hensive plan, Massey said
staff wanted to develop a
map of the Marion County
that someone could look at
and have reasonable ex-
planation of what growth
may occur in their neigh-
borhood. In addition as
part of the updating
process, Massey said area
now marked as urban re-
serve maybe designated to
allow two homes per acre.
Residents at the north-
west meeting said any
changes should be no more
than one home per acre,


citing the community of
Golden Hills as an exam-
ple.
Areas suggested for addi-
tional growth would need
to have the sewer and
water to support higher
densities of homes, he said.
Residents calling for
preservation of green
space and open space in
the county, point out that
there are 130,000 platted
lots that are vacant in Mar-
ion County and suggest
those lots be used before
additional land is platted
into subdivisions. Of those
lots approximately 40,000
are in Marion Oaks or Sil-
ver Springs Shores, Massey
acknowledged.
From comments made at
the different public hear-
ing throughout the county,
Massey said the county's
land-use map will be up-
dated as a proposal. The
proposal would then go the
Marion County Planning
Commission and then the
Marion County Commis-
sioners in June or July
Even if the commission-
ers approved the plan, the
map would be reviewed by
the state agency the De-
partment of Community Af-
fairs for compliance.


The Key Club from West Port High School had both a team for Friday's evening
Relay for Life,a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, and lent help wherever
needed.The team included Lauren Pozdol, Justin Ellisor, Ashley Lindsey, Melissa
Lindsey, David Lindsey, Adrian Molina, Ketsia Lucien, Brinja Milton, Heather Gee,
Margie Vera, Mairo Bravo, Juliette Campbell, Martin Pere, Fabiola Molina, Adrian
Molina, Amit Patel,Thanh Tran,Andy Nguyen and Jamiliah Khah.

According to District
Land Manager Kevin W
Love, burns are conducted
to mimic natural fire cycles
under a controlled situa-
tion. The object is to avoid
uncontrolled wild-fires and
enhance the area's natural
conditions by maintaining
the ecological and wildlife
habitat values. Prescribed
burns are only conducted
when weather conditions
allow the objectives to be
met while minimizing im-
pacts to the public.
Every effort will be made
to ensure that smoke will
not affect homes or high-
ways. However, vehicle op-
erators should exercise
caution in case smoke does
lead to reduced visibility
on the area's roads.
The district owns and
manages approximately

Response to letter
How my response to a Robert E.
Beckner column in the April 9,2010
Citizen evoked a regret from D.I.
Larson for not having been married
to Daniel Boone puzzles me. And, I
find her book offer insulting since
she knows nothing about my back-
ground or my knowledge of history
My letter was intended to take
Mr. Beckner to task for playing fast
and loose with the facts and stating
undocumented opinion as if it were
fact. I further commented on how
the vitriolic nature of such rants
contributes little to the national di-
alogue.
Speaking of "facts," there are two
references in Ms. Larson's letter
which are posed as questions but
appear as if they are referring to
something that's so. I refer to the
writer's questions: "Is the legal
health care bill is a provision for a
civilian security force? Who is that
for? What is that for?" Then the let-
ter continues by referring to
Gestapo, Russians and Chinese.
Before I make a comment on a
subject about which I know little, I
have done some research.
It seems that the likes of Glen
Beck, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh
and others have been misleading
the public by taking out of context
excerpts of a speech in Colorado
Springs by then-presidential candi-
date Obama. What was left out of
context was the fact that Obama
was proposing strengthening the
Peace Corps, the USA Freedom
Corps and Americorps.
According to Viveca Novak at
factcheck.org, "section 5210 of the
Patient Protection and Affordable
Care Act," does create a "Ready Re-
serve Corps." Jerry Farrell, execu-
tive director of the Commissioned


TO T H E E D I TO R


Officers Association told
factcheck.org that, "the Ready Re-
serve can help the PHS to avoid sit-
uations such as what happened
after Katrina."
Ms. Novak goes on to say, "Need-
less to say (we hope) there is ab-
solutely no support for this chain
e-mail's speculation that uniformed
members of the Public Health Serv-
ice would be ordered to give 'lethal
injections (a.k.a. vaccinations) to
unworthy people'."
So, based upon what I have re-
searched, I feel that we have no
reason to be paranoid about Ms
Larson's "civilian security force," or
"cute little uniformed people called
Gestapo."
William A Hagner
Ocala
Level playing field
This is in response to Ms Larson's
letter published in the May 7 issue.
Ms. Larson seems to have a prob-
lem with the views of William Hag-
ner published earlier. As I recall,
Mr. Hagner's primary complaint
was with Mr. Beckner using "right
wing" propaganda and opinion as
facts in one or more of his articles.
I believe Mr. Hagner stated the cor-
rected facts with sources of his
data. I do not recall his going into
most of the areas that Ms. Larson
seems to chastise him for. Actually,
I had a bit of trouble following her
logic.
I would however like to pass on
some information that I, as a friend
of Mr. Hagner, possess and which he
might be too modest to state.
She would love to give him the
"biggest fattest history book" she
can find. As a lover of history, hav-
ing taught it for the Department of

Help send some


veterans to D.C.

A s we head into the holiday season, there's a great pro-
gram for veterans that needs some help. Last year vol-
unteers raised money to take a group of Marion
County World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., to see
their memorial. The cost to the veteran was $0. The cost for
the Honor Flight was $45,000.
Donations from individuals, civic organizations,
churches, and businesses provided the funding to the make
the trip a reality.
We ran a story last year, complete with photos taken by a
camera that was provided to the vets, about what this trip
meant to the military people who had served during that
war. For most, it was the first time they had seen the re-
cently-erected memorial to those veterans who fought in
this global conflict.
There are more veterans right here in Marion County de-
serving to take their own Honor Flight, and volunteers want
to put them on a plane to Washington. They hope to have
another trip in the fall.
Can you help make that dream a reality?
What better way to remember someone who sacrificed
part of his life in service, than honoring a veteran today.
Donations can be mailed to the Florida Department of
the VFW, PO. Box 1630, Ocala, FL 34478. Make checks
payable to Honor Flight Marion County.

Every year when Memorial
Day comes around, my
thoughts turn to my Uncle
Joe.
Joseph Day Clark was a ser-
geant in the Army who was killed
in France on July 14, 1944, just a
few weeks after D-Day
He hadn't been overseas that
long, considering there's a pic-
ture somewhere of him holding
me, and I was only a little more
than 6 months old when he died.
They say that the impact of
World War II touched everyone
in some way, and here we are 66
years later, and it's still affecting
me.
I've been on the Web, and

L E T T E R
A revelation
Very early this morning I had a
revelation that begs to be shared
with every member of this Chris-
tian nation.
For no reason whatsoever this
line popped into my mind.
"And deliver us from evil. Amen"
It is a safe bet that quite a few
Americans are familiar with this line.
If you believe in the power of
prayer, perhaps, now is the time to
start saying this prayer several times
a day Or, any prayer of your choice.
What if we all decided to desig-
nate a day, and time to make this
plea in unison, God might just hear
us, and hopefully answer our
prayer. It could not hurt to try.
How does July 4, at noon sound?
Where ever you are: recite it
loud, and clear, in order to swell the


found his grave site in France. It
touches me greatly every time I
go to that site.
The consolation is that I'm
only one of many who feel that
way on Memorial Day
I remember up in New Jersey,
when I was a kid, putting on my
baseball uniform and marching
in the Memorial Day parade in
Bergenfield. The parade ended
at the Borough Hall, where they
had speeches and other events.
One year my father, as com-
mander of a group called the
Catholic War Veterans, spoke to
the crowd. One of the things he
told the parents was to make
sure they took their children to
patriotic places such as West
Point, Valley Forge and Washing-
ton's Crossing, among others. I
remember that night, while serv-
ing as an altar boy at Novena, the
priest asked me if he had taken
me to those places, and I proudly
replied that he had.
On Veterans Day in November,
I remember all the vets who
came back, particularly my fa-
ther and my Uncle Ed, who lived
across the street.


But this weekend is for honor-
ing those who didn't make it, who
paid the ultimate price for our
freedom.
I'm sure many of you were
touched by the loss of a loved
one, whether it be World War II,
Korea, Vietnam, or the Middle
East. While many spend Monday
having a barbecue, visiting with
relatives or doing other "holi-
day" things, try to find out
whether your community is hav-
ing any sort of memorial celebra-
tion, and take the time to go.
For me, I'll be covering one of
those events, at Highland Ceme-
tery, where the Hammett Bowen
pupils are scheduled to take
part. I'm sure there will be mo-
ments when I, and many others,
will be a little overwhelmed by
the feelings that always come on
this day.
Be safe over the holiday,
friends, and we'll see you next
week.

PEOPLE FIRST, NOT


GOVERNMENT


Memorial Day and Rachel Carson


IL. Wendy E.
Binnie
Memorial Day, which
includes all wars
since the Civil War,
is observed on the last
Monday of May and honors
the men and women who
died while in the military
service. In observance of
the holiday, many people
visit cemeteries and memo-
rials, and volunteers place
American flags on each
gravesite at national ceme-
teries. A national moment
of remembrance takes
place at 3 p.m. local time.
The location of the first
observance of Memorial
Day is in dispute. Some
claim the custom of honor-
ing war dead began in
Boalsburg, Pennsylvania.
Others claim the custom
was originated by some
Southern women who
placed flowers on the
graves of both Union and
Confederate soldiers after
the Civil War. According to
one writer, the first Memo-
rial Day service took place
on May 30, 1866, on Belle
Isle, a burial ground for
Union soldiers in the St.
James River, at Richmond,
Virginia. The school super-
intendent and the mayor
planned the program of
hymns and speeches and
had the burial ground dec-
orated with flowers. In
1865, Henry C. Welles, a
druggist in the village of
Waterloo, New York, men-
tioned at a social gathering


that honor should be
shown to the patriotic dead
of the Civil War by decorat-
ing their graves. In the
spring of 1866, he again
mentioned this subject to
General John B. Murray,
Seneca County Clerk Gen-
eral Murray embraced the
idea and a committee was
formulated to plan a day
devoted to honoring the
dead.
In May of 1966, just in
time for the Centennial,
Waterloo was recognized as
the "Birthplace of Memo-
rial Day" by the United
States government. This
recognition was long in
coming and involved hours
of painstaking research to
prove the claim. While
other communities may
claim earlier observances
of honoring the Civil War
dead, none can claim to
have been so well planned
and complete, nor can they
claim the continuity of ob-
servances that Waterloo
can who had honored sol-
diers who had died in the
Civil War. The Centennial
Celebration that year
brought dignitaries from
government, military, vet-
eran's organizations and
descendants of the original
founders of Memorial Day
A once luxurious home on
Waterloo's Main Street,
built in 1850, was pur-
chased from the county and
restored. Now the Memo-
rial Day Museum, it houses
artifacts of the first Memo-
rial Day and the Civil War
era. Memorial Day is com-
memorated each year in
Waterloo. The parade,
speeches, and solemn ob-
servances try to keep the


meaning of Memorial Day
as it was originally in-
tended to be. Now in en-
compasses all wars in
which the U.S. has fought.
There is no easy segue
into this portion of the arti-
cle: There was a survivor
from the BP oil rig on 60
Minutes last week. It was
one of the most compelling
interviews seen on this ex-
cellent program. A friend
who worked for Union Car-
bide during the 1984 gas
leak in Bophal, India,
which claimed more than
4,000 lives, had the same
feeling of shock and horror
as he knows quite a bit
about company policy,
greed and slowness to cor-
rect mistakes. BP knows
what happened, and as
usual, people made the
mistakes. The annular ring
was crushed and they
should have known it when
the rubber showed up in
the reverse flow that comes
up from the well. The BP
guy who over rode the oth-
ers also started the fiasco.
In good management sys-
tems you never defer your
command to someone else
unless you are forced to by
either overwhelming logic
or by gunpoint. So now, in-
stead of costing BP mil-
lions, it'll cost them billions
and untold damage to the
environment. The friend
said he was on a tanker
being sent to Monsanto in
South America stacked
with diisopropylamine
drums that they use in
Round Up as a salt. As they
neared the Equator, the
heat was so high that the
material started to expand
rapidly The chimes on the


S TA N


drums began to bulge. The
ship Captain asked our
plant if he could come back
and off load them before
they exploded. The plant
didn't want to take them
back, "but as the guy in
charge, I told them to do it.
The last thing I wanted to
have on my conscience was
ship explosion in the At-
lantic." The drums were off
loaded and allowed to cool
down. "We then decanted
some of the material to


allow for expansion under
heat like the tropics and re-
shipped the goods without
incident." Industries face
these types of issues all the
time. Good judgment has
no equal and safety must
come first. BP and the crew
knew that the faster they
drilled the more risk they
were taking. Sadly, money
guided their thinking more
than good sense. Once that
ring cracked, they'd had it.
He ended his letter: "I feel


like I'm back at Carbide
writing this stuff." Thank
goodness for clever, intelli-
gent, educated men such as
this friend. One can won-
der only if he or someone
like him had been in
charge of BP we would not
be contemplating Rachel
Carson's "Silent Spring,"
summer, fall and winter.

America's defense must


be modernized


Robert E.
Beckner


RIGHT DOWN


H house Minority
Leader John A
Boehner says the
"Battle of Capitol Hill" is
about to begin, a real prop-
aganda offensive led by
Nancy Pelosi and joined by
nearly all Democratic
politicians and their fol-
lowers. Pelosi recently said
their health care bill fulfills
the "right" of all Americans
to the government-assured
health care services, this in
the face of the overwhelm-
ing majority of the coun-
try's belief to be
inconsistent with truth and
reality
The rhetorical onslaught
that is about to be un-
leashed upon the elec-
torate begins the battle of
survival of a non-socialist
America. It will depend on
our own American way of
life and the long continuity
of our institutions and our
history The electorates
will feel the full fury and
the might of the main
stream media, as they pro-
tect their "chosen one,"
with the Democratic Party
right beside them.
If voters succumb to the
next seven months of de-
ceptions and lies, then free
America, including all that
we have known and cared
for, will sink into a new
dark age. If our public
keeps to their duties and
concentrates on the known
true facts, remembering
that our spirit of freedom
and dignity will last an-
other one thousand years,
then future Americans will
be able to say, "this was
American voters' finest
hour."
Most of all, we must re-
member the biggest lie of
all told by Mr. Obama, that
his health care bill would
reduce the deficit. Just the
uncontrolled growth of the
annual deficits and total


public debt can be seen by
every informed person.
The CBO has said it's not
true, just look at the 30 mil-
lion plus new individuals
being added to Medicare,
which is already broke,
plus other facts, all show
the more than one trillion
dollars that Democrats will
turn into further public
deficit. If you need other
proof of Obama's breaking
of his oath of office under
the Constitution, this is it.
A recently released 36-
page report from the Na-
tional Strategy Information
Center says the U.S. mili-
tary will remain in a 20th
Century mindset if it does
not appreciate the singular
significance of armed
groups, such as Somali pi-
rates, Mexican drug smug-
glers and groups such as al
Qaeda and the Taliban and
others. Islamic terrorists
are all emerging from
weak, failing and failed
countries, posing the great-
est threat to the United
States. Yet the report
claims the Pentagon is not
adapting quickly enough to
stop them. This report was
titled, "Adopting America's
Security Paradigm and Se-
curity Agenda," from con-
sultants with 20
senior-level military, intel-
ligence and diplomatic of-
ficials from around the
democratic world. They
feel that for the next 20
years, we can expect to be
confronted with the same
security environment. We
must change our mindset
to having military units
specialized, trained and
dedicated to fighting "ir-
regular warfare." It also
suggested that the U.S. im-
prove its strategic commu-
nication with foreign
countries and frontline po-
lice and that officers be
trained to help improve in-
telligence collection in
problem countries. This re-
port shows the feelings of
individuals in Obama's ad-
ministration who know
what we need to defend
America, yet the report is
probably already "deep
sixed," as the Obama ad-
ministration has continu-
ally shown since its been in
office that there is no de-
sire or wish to improve our
country's security.
The federal government
most bloated and incompe-
tent bureaucracy
The U.S. post office, in a


desperate attempt to trim
costs, has told the Ameri-
can public to look for no
mail delivery on Satur-
days. Then they would
have the entire weekend
off. The post office fiscal
problems can be traced to
its unionized bureaucracy
with more than 80 percent
of the postal budget de-
voted to their 581,070 ca-
reer employees. Their
collective bargaining
process determines wages,
hours worked and work
place conditions. They
have more exorbitant ben-
efits than other federal em-
ployees enjoy Some say
their workers enjoy a
cushy life, but can't get a
simple letter delivered on
time. There are 36,500 post
offices, more locations
than McDonald's, Star-
bucks and Walgreen's com-
bined. Their program has
simply run out of excuses.
They will have a projected
$7 billion in red ink this
year on top of existing debt
of $13.2 billion. They are
heading for insolvency, yet
their postal benefits pack-
age contain $51.9 billion in
"unfunded" retirement ob-
ligations. The government
has had a postal monopoly
since 1782, but with tele-
phone, electronic bill pay-
ing options, e-mail and fax
machines, who needs to
buy stamps and envelopes?
These items have dropped
by 20 percent in just the
past few years. There is a
statute making it a crime
for FEDEX or UPS to de-
liver first class mail. In
spite of these problems,
they still have employees
such as R.F Bernstock,
their president, who makes
$232,500 a year, approving
a $4 million dollars con-
tract, a no-bid one, to a for-
mer associate, because he
formerly worked with her
and liked her work prod-
uct. No bid contracts are
usually "very risky" and
more "costly" The Post Of-
fice General Counsel re-
viewed the Tatum contract
and determined that Mr.
Bernstock had no ethics
conflict. Some feel taxpay-
ers should insist on cutting
off their union bureau-
cracy and by opening it up
to the free market, would
ensure better service while
saving nearly a quarter tril-
lion dollars. Now looking

at this bureaucratic mess,
some people want to turn
our health care over to the
government? They can't
even run the U.S.PO.
As we cannot get infor-
mation from the Obama
administration, we have
to seek it elsewhere. In
this case it comes from the
respected, "Sunday Her-
ald Scotland," and an
award winning newspa-
per. The article we were
interested in said the
United States had


shipped from Concord,
California to the British
Island of Diego Garcia, in
the Indian Ocean, which
has been identified previ-
ously as an island for a
possible impending attack
on Iraq. The items
shipped were 10 ammuni-
tion containers, according
to the manifest from the
U.S. Navy. They included
387 "Blu" bombs, used for
blasting hardened or un-
derground structures. The
shipping company is Su-
perior Maritime Services
of Florida, under a signed
government contract; in
the sum of $699,500 for


shipping many thousands
of military items. The
cargo also included 195
1,000 lb. Blu 110 bombs
and 192 massive 2,000 lb.
Blu 117 bombs.
The "bunker buster"
bomb is 19 feet long, 14.5
inches in diameter and
weighs 4,400 pounds. It
can reach a depth of 180
feet underground before
exploding. United States
or Israeli bombers are
ready to destroy 10,000
targets in Iran in a few
hours. It sure looks like
preparations are being
made to attack somebody,
by somebody and it does-


n't seem like it would be
us in view of our president
and the relationship we
currently have with Israel.
Obama recently denied
the U.S. is furnishing Is-
rael with nuclear parts,
saying we have no proof
they even have nuclear
weapons. Prime Minster
Benjamin Netanyahu is
complaining bitterly
about the international re-
action to what he calls
Iran's intentions to de-
stroy Israel, saying Israel
"must not be silent or be
destroyed in the face of
evil." On April 14, Israel
issued an urgent warning


for all of their citizens to
leave Egypt's Sinai Penin-
sula immediately citing,
"concrete evidence of an
expected terrorists at-
tempt to kidnap Israelis in
Sinai."

Defense for over 20 years,
I'm sure he would appreciate
a good factual history book.
In fact, he might even recip-
rocate by giving her one with
factual data.
She makes reference to
him as "obviously not a
rugged individualist" and
seems to claim that category
for herself because she
seemingly would have en-
joyed being Daniel Boone's
wife.
I do not believe that Mr.
Hagner claimed to be a
"rugged individualist," but if
he had, his credentials would


include: lying about his age
to join the National Guard
when he was 15, joining the
Navy when he was 17, speak-
ing four languages, living in
several parts of the world
while teaching for the De-
partment of Defense, suc-
cessfully completing the
requirements to obtain his
captain's license to master a
100-ton vessel at age 66 and,
last but not least, going to war
as a Merchant Mariner at age
68 in 2003 to help get materi-
als to the military in Iraq. In
fact he was on one of those
merchant vessels circling
around off the coast of
Turkey for weeks waiting on
permission to unload. When
that was denied he went with


the cargo ship to Kuwait
where they encountered
Iraqi missile fire while in the
Kuwaiti port. He went to war
at this age, not because he
supported the war, but be-
cause we were in it and he
supported the troops and
hoped that by going as an old
but able man, he was possi-
bly keeping a younger man
out of danger.
Upon his return, the South
Marion Citizen ran a lead
story about his exploits on
the merchant ship.
I'd say his credentials for
the unsolicited title of
"rugged individualist" con-
trast rather sharply with
those of someone who would

No faith above facts
In America, we usually get
the kind of government we
deserve. In 2000, George W
Bush was elected largely be-
cause he was outwardly reli-
gious and, inexplicably, was
the candidate with whom
most of the country wanted
to have a beer. In 2004, he
was re-elected because he
convinced gullible Ameri-
cans that terrorists and gay
marriage would ruin the
country unless we voted for

Now, we have know-noth-
ing teabaggers who believe
that President Obama is
strangling the economy with
taxes even though, in point of
fact, he's reduced taxes for
the overwhelming majority
of Americans.
Recently in the Republi-
can primary for governor of
Alabama, Roy Moore at-
tacked Bradley Byrne for
supporting the teaching of
evolution in public schools.
Moore slammed Byrne for
saying that evolution "best
explains the origin of life"
and that the Bible is only
partially true. Byrne then
said that he believed the
Bible was the word of God,
that every single word of it is
true and that Jesus guides
his every decision.
Quite simply, Americans'
insistence on putting faith
above facts has made us too


stupid to be governed effec-
tively Since we force our
candidates to at least pay lip
service to primitive, reli-
gious superstitions that are
without merit, is it any won-
der that we can't tackle seri-
ous issues such as regulating
banks and curbing pollution
and global warming?
It's time for Americans to
grow up and finally discard
their untenable religious be-
liefs. But short of that, we
should at least promise
never to vote according to
our religion. The comfort
your religion offers you re-
ally does come at a terrible
price. In 2008, we finally
elected the smartest guy on
the ballot, and now he's
being persecuted and hand-
cuffed by the ignorant Sarah
Palin crowd. Why won't we
smarten up?

Featuring the activity of the Euchre Club


Bonnie and Tom Teem-
ley are the subs when Sue
and Ken are not available.
A Euchre party is planned
on May 31. At least 3-4 par-
ties are planned every
year. Anywhere from 28-48
people show up for Euchre
every week. All are wel-
J a n come. A Christmas party is
L i b e r i o planned for December.
More information will be
given at a later date.
REEK Thanks to Sue and Ken
for volunteering so the Eu-
chre players have a great
evening. Everyone is in-
.4 4- 1 -


W hoa! Memorial
Day is upon us!
Where did our
spring go? We are defi-
nitely right into summer!
Thank goodness after our
nasty winter. I promise
NOT to complain about the
heat, at least not until Au-
gust.
Feature of the week
We will finally find out
what is going on at the Eu-
chre Club. The feature this
week is the Euchre Club
and its leaders, Sue and
Ken Warner They took
over running the club
about seven months ago,
taking over Bob Congdon's
place. He had done a great
job for many years.
Sue and Ken are from
Canton, Ohio. Sue worked
for Hoover Vacuum clean-
ers and Ken was a meat in-
spector Sue retired in 1995
and Ken retired in 2007.
When he retired they
headed for Florida and
settled in Spruce Creek
North.
They have eight children
and 12 grandchildren be-
tween them.
Now retired, or should I
say semi-retired, Ken
works at Sholom Park and
Sue does part-time house-
keeping. They both love
gambling, traveling (when
they get a chance), and all
kinds of card games. Sue
plays Bocce ball and used
to bowl. Ken enjoys all
kinds of sports and is a
handyman.
Euchre is played at the
SCN Clubhouse at 6:30
every Monday night.


vited to play
Scores for the Euchre
are published in the SCN
newsletter.
Bingo
Bingo is still a Tuesday
night affair and these
Bingo-ers really have a
super time at the Spruce
Creek North Clubhouse at
about 6 p.m. Come join
your friends and meet new
ones. Non-residents are al-
ways welcome.
Thank You
Richard Simmons wants
to thank all who sent him
get well wishes. He is still
having physical therapy at
home and doing quite well.
Get well soon, Rich!

Where have all the centrists gone?


Had there been no
centrists at the
Constitutional
Convention of 1787, our
nation would not
have been born.
Under the Arti-
cles of Confeder-
ation, which
preceded the
Constitution, the
13 disunited
states acted like
cranky, inde-
pendent nations.
"In order to
form a more per-
fect union," a Jim
middle ground
had to be found.
At this writing 39 mem-
bers of the U.S. House and
Senate have retired or re-
signed. Seven others are
auditioning for different
public offices in which to
enhance their pensions.
Some sensed a citizen


F


tsunami might sweep
them out of office. Others
were deserted by their
parties under suspicion
they had gone
soft as Jello as to
party dogma.
Gearing up for
the Congres-
S sional election
2010, power
hungry parties
and lock-step
Sj Ipoliticians are
filling the air
with self-serving
blather about
lynn freedoms and
responsibilities,
while their records
demonstrate much talk
and little responsibility.
As George Washington,
chairman of the Constitu-
tional Convention ob-
served: "Political parties
provoke mischief..."
Governor Crist's deci-


sion to go independent in
his quest for the U.S. Sen-
ate seat vacated by Mel
Martinez promises six
months of triangular polit-
ical drama which will in-
furiate the major political
parties and frustrate their
candidates. It should be a
good show.
We expect U.S. Con-
gressman Kendrick Meek
will be the candidate of
Democrats. Meek has
been a standard model
liberal Democrat during
his terms in the Florida
Legislature and Congress.
By simple arithmetic, Mr.
Meek should have the best
shot at the Senate seat.
At this writing, Florida
voter registrations are ap-
proximately 42 percent
Democrats, 36 percent Re-
publicans, and 21 percent
other parties and unaffili-
ated. Democrats in-


creased their numbers
during the Obama cam-
paign for president, but
have fallen off a few
points lately. It's the Jello
factor.
Marco Rubio has had a
rapid rise from humble
beginnings to a place of
leadership in the Florida
Republican party. En-
dorsements by party lead-
ers refer to Rubio as a
man of ideas and a solid
fiscal and social conserva-
tive. He's a committed, no-
Jello Cheney Republican.
In the eyes of hard-core
Republicans, Governor
Crist contracted a Jello in-
fection when he hugged a
sitting president, and ac-
cepted billions of bailout
money for the benefit of
Florida state workers and
job projects. When the
governor declared his po-
litical independence,
lock-step leaders of the
Republicans gave him a
middle finger farewell


and sold his portrait.
Can the governor win a
Senate seat in this politi-
cal atmosphere? We think
so. Even though he's cut
off from big-party cam-
paign contributors, he can
polish his popularity by
diligent attention to his
gubernatorial duties. It's
impossible for the press to
ignore a sitting governor
with a veto pen and au-
thority to recall the Legis-
lature to face up to its
errors and omissions.
Former U.S. House
Speaker Thomas P (Tip)
O'Neill said "All politics is
local" (sic). While Mr.
Rubio and Mr. Meek will
be running for and against
Congress and the presi-
dent, the Florida Legisla-
ture has presented Mr.
Crist with a number of
local opportunities to look
and sound senatorial -
fair apportionment of leg-
islative districts, near-
shore drilling, back-door


deregulation of power
companies, and legislative
vetoes of state agencies'
rules.
While Democrats and
Republicans can claim 78
percent of registered
Florida voters, other sta-
tistics show that Floridi-
ans claim to be 20 percent
liberals, 35 percent con-
servatives, and 45 percent
centrists. The center is
growing. Parties and
politicians may be polar-
ized. Voters are not.
While Mr. Meek and Mr.
Rubio will have to look
over their shoulders every
morning to make sure
they're walking the party
lines from now to Election
Day, Governor Crist is free
to think for himself.
George Bernard Shaw
once observed: "Progress
is impossible without
change, and those who
cannot change their
minds cannot change any-
thing."

If you have chest pain, don't hesitate. Call 911 immediately. It could be
a heart attack.

Fortunately, the Chest Pain Team at Munroe Regional Medical Center is
always ready for you. 24/7. Munroe is one of only 12% of hospitals in the
United States to be recognized as an Accredited Chest Pain Center by the
Society of Chest Pain Centers and is the only Accredited Chest Pain
Center in Marion and Citrus Counties.

Our goal: to reduce the time to treatment in the critical early stages of a
heart attack, because the faster a heart attack is treated, the less damage to
the heart and the better the outcome of treatment for our patients.

So, if you have chest pain, call 911 immediately and ask to be taken to your
Accredited Chest Pain Center-Munroe Regional. To receive a free Personal
Health Record, call Munroe's Health Resource Line at 352-867-8181.

fact, by everyone who par-
ticipates in any Oak Run
activities. When we go to
events, unless we are very
new to the community, we
usually know at least some
of the other attendees. Per-
haps we have come with
the folks we usually attend
with. But what about all
the friends we haven't met
yet? Why not make it a
point to get to know at least
one new person wherever
we go? The best way to do
that is if everyone wears
their name tags. It is much
easier to approach some-
one if you can call them by
their name. In addition, it
seems it might be easier to
remember names if we
have seen it in writing. If
you don't have (or can't
find) your name tag you
can purchase them from
Della Blanchard at the
Donut Drop-In on the sec-
ond Saturday of each
month in the Orchid Club.
If you don't wear your tag


because you don't like
what the pin does to your
clothes, you can either get
one of the new ones with a
magnetic attachment or
have your old tag con-
verted to the magnetic
type.
Send all items for this
column to Carol Ann
Wheeler at democrat-
carol@deccacable.com no
later than the afternoon of
the Friday before publica-
tion. Note there are no hy-
phens in the address. If
you wish to call her, the
number is in the Oak Run
directory. You may send
pictures as jpg attach-
ments. Typed copy or hard
copy photos can be placed
in Carol's cubby across the
street from her house but
should be submitted ear-
lier as they take longer to
process. The names of the
people in all photos must
be included.

Stories from the dentist's waiting room


Dick
Frank


PUN


Shrill, baby, drill.
Do it now be-
D cause other-
wise we'll only have to do it
later." Those were the
words I said to my dentist
when she mentioned I had
a cavity that would eventu-
ally need filling. While sit-
ting in the dentist's chair
being bored I reflected
upon some stories I heard
in the waiting room.
Nothing but the tooth
Betty didn't want to have
her tooth pulled, even
though her mother said
there was no other choice.


But, every time the dentist
went to put the forceps in
her mouth, she clenched
her teeth.
Whispering to the nurse,
the dentist tried again. At
the instant he approached
her, the nurse pinched
Betty's bottom. The girl's
mouth opened wide, and
the tooth was pulled.
"Now," the dentist said,
"That wasn't so bad."
"No," Betty agreed. "But
I sure didn't know that the
roots went so far down."
All aboard
Years ago a group of den-
tists set up business in
Jacksonville. The only
place they could find for an
office was on board a boat,
moored on the banks of the
St. Johns River. As an
added bonus, they also of-
fered river crossings in the
boat, with the dentistry
work being performed dur-
ing the crossing. The busi-
ness quickly became
known as the Tooth Ferry
Small Bites
He got a "Dentist of the
Year" award. It was a little
plaque.


Dentists are the only
men who can tell a woman
to open or close her mouth
and get away with it.
Once, my cavity wasn't
fixed by my regular dentist,
but by a guy who was filling
in.
It's a little known fact
that many lighthouse keep-
ers raise hens. Apparently,
they like to have their eggs
with their beacon.
The dentist served in the
Army Of course he was a
Drill Sergeant.
My father was a dentist
and my mother was a man-
icurist; for most of their
married life they fought
tooth and nail.
When I went to the den-
tist for some root canal
work, I lost my nerve.
The Buddhist refused
his dentist's Novocain dur-
ing root canal work be-
cause he wanted to
transcend dental medica-
tion.
A lawyer asked his den-
tist to give him a retainer.
Patient: "Do you extract
teeth painlessly?"
Dentist: "Not always, the
other day I nearly dis my


wrist."
When my dentist was in
college with other students
they got experience by fill-
ing cavities for anyone who
would come in to the col-
lege. They were allowed to
only charge a dollar per
tooth. These become
known as buck teeth.
Sheep Teeth
A frantic farmer in Aus-
tralia called an animal or-
thodontist in Iowa. "Help,
sir!" he cried, "A hundred
of my sheep have braces,
and the local sheep ortho-
dontist just died. I need a
responsible animal dentist
to care for my flock."
The orthodontist was
moved, and a good fee was
offered, so he promptly
flew to Australia where he
found he was entirely un-
familiar with the orthodon-
tic equipment the sheep
had been given, and he
spent a whole six months
in Australia trying to figure
out the foreign braces.
When he finally boarded
a plane for home, he
sighed with happiness. "At
last, I'll be seeing ewes in
all the old familiar braces."


Real Pain
A woman and her hus-
band interrupted their va-
cation to go to the dentist.
"I want a tooth pulled, and
I don't want Novocain be-
cause I'm in a big hurry,"
the woman said. "Just ex-
tract the tooth as quickly as
possible, and we'll be on
our way" The dentist was
quite impressed.
"You're certainly a
courageous woman," he
said. "Which tooth is it?"
The woman turned to
her husband and said,
"Show him your tooth,
dear."
The light dawns
A man walked into a
dentist's surgery and said,
"Excuse me, can you help

"You don't need a den-
tist. You need a psychia-

"Yes, I know."
"So, why did you come in

"The light was on."
Picky
A boy and his mother
stood looking at a dentist's
showcase.
"If I had to have false
teeth, mother, I'd take that
pair," said the small boy,
pointing.
"Hush, Willie," inter-
posed the mother quickly,
shaking his arm, "Haven't I
told you it's bad manners to
pick your teeth in public?"

Store to help defray the
cost of some of the yarn.
We are very grateful to
Sue Anderson who do-
nated several beautiful
hand knitted baby
sweaters, hats and booties.
Some very lucky babies
will receive those items.
Some members continue
to make weekly trips to the
county jail to give crochet
lessons to some of the in-
mates. These ladies are
very appreciative and we
hear such comments as


"we can't wait for Tuesdays
so we can learn more", and
"look what I made!"
They've made scarves, lap
blankets, hats, and one
even made a baby sweater
and slippers. All of these
items are donated to char-
ity, but the ladies we teach
will be able to use their
skills when they return
home.
Yarn donations are ap-
preciated to help us con-
tinue our charity work.
Just stop by our Friday
meetings at the clubhouse
between 1 and 3 p.m. or
drop it off with Geri.
Thank you again to those


who have donated yarn to
our group.
If residents would like to
join our group, we would
love to have you; no skill
required, and we supply
very good teachers! It is a
nice excuse for a "hen
party", and we have really
good refreshments.
Singbird notes for June
Don't forget to stop in the
clubhouse on July 10 at our
Cherrywood Estates
"Christmas in July" craft
show. We will be supplying
the hot dogs, chips, sodas,
chili, and a baked goods
table. Proceeds will help
defray our expenses such


as tuning the piano and
purchasing new music.
Please think about join-
ing the Songbirds when we
return in September to
begin rehearsals for the
fall and holiday seasons. It
is a very worthwhile en-
deavor and fun will be had
by all!
Bocce summer league
We are putting together a
Bocce summer league. We
will be starting the league

YOUR DENTAL
HEALTH
I *


byM. E Hapton, D.D.S.
LIKE PARENT,
LIKE CHILD
Youngsters of parents who
make regular visits to the
dentist are more likely to see
the dentist themselves.
According to research involving
over 6,000 children between the
ages of two and seventeen
years, researchers found that
about 86% of children whose
parents had a dental visit during
the preceding year had dental
exams compared with 63% of
children whose parents had not
scheduled exams for
themselves. With tooth decay as
one of the most chronic
diseases in the United States,
parents are urged to focus on
their families' oral health needs.
Treatment delayed is likely to
be a good deal costlier, in terms
of dollars as well as outcome
than immediate or preventive
treatment of cavities and gum
disease.
At the office of MARK E.
HAMPTON, DDS., we are
committed to providing the best
service to every member of
your family. We'd love to have
the opportunity to become your
family dentist. Each member of
your family has their own
unique dental needs. Now, all of
those needs can be
accommodated in one place
with the advanced dental
technology and comfort
amenities that we offer at our
dental practice located at 11902
Illinois Street, Dunnellon. Our
entire staff encourages your
questions about comprehensive
dental care. Call us at 352-489-
5071. We offer almost any type
of dental treatment right here in
our office. Our goal is to make
each visit to our office a
comfortable and positive
experience. We're "Dedicated
to Excellent Dentistry."
P.S. The American Dental
Association recommends that
children have their first visit to
the dentist by their first
birthday.

The many excuses of a man in his midlife crisis


Rev.
James L
Snyder


OUT To



sometimes it is best to
err on the side of cau-
tion. This, however,
has not always been my
practice down through the
years. In fact, I am not very
good when it comes to prac-
ticing anything, just ask the
Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage.
As of late, though, I have
been practicing caution
like I was going to Carnegie
Hall. I am not very good at
it yet, but my goal is to come
to the point of perfection in
the area of caution as it
touches my person, partic-
ularly my health and well-
being. This may be because
I have reached that age


when most men go through
a midlife crisis.
You can always tell when
a man is going through his
midlife crisis. He usually
wants to prove that he is as
good at 50-something as he
was when he was 20-some-
thing. Carelessly throwing
caution to the wind, he at-
tempts to do something be-
yond the energy of his
existing body One sure way
to tell if a man is having a
midlife crisis is to notice his
recent injuries.
Personally, when I was 20
I was not good at anything,
which has enabled me to
skip my midlife crisis. I am
glad to be 50 (OK, maybe I
am a tad over 50) because
now when I get tired I can
say I am tired and sit down.
At 50-something I have ab-
solutely nothing to prove. I
am no better or worse than
I was when I was 20. It is, as
my wife notes, the ageless
wonder of incompetency
The difficulty with grow-
ing old is that the old mem-
ory juices do not flow as
swiftly as they once did. Of
course, some of us never
had a real gusher in that
department anyway. The
more memories I have, it
seems, the less I am able to

recall them in the inno-
cence of their reality. Like
the fisherman who tells the
size of the one that got
away Memory seems to add
or subtract according to the
benefit of the person con-
juring up the memory
A big problem a man in
mid-life crisis has is that he
does not remember how
good he actually was when
he was 20, unless of course,
his wife knew him at that
time. If he could, he would
not have to try to replicate
it when he is 50. This is one
of the unique advantages of
maturing. Forgetting al-
ways leads to exaggerating.
And, exaggerating at 50-
something leads to injuries.
The only purpose of this is
to impress people who re-
ally are not being im-
pressed.
As we grow older, things
begin to change, and some
things change for the better.
For me, when I was 20, I
could not admit to anybody
that I was tired. I would
have been the laughing-
stock in my community if I
would admit any such phe-
nomenon. You know what
they say about the unlim-
ited energy that young peo-
ple have. Now that I am in

my 50s, I can blame my ad-
vancing years on just about
anything.
"I love to do that, but at
my age I don't have the en-
ergy." This has covered a
multitude of sins, for which
I am so grateful. Of course,
it does have one drawback,
when someone in their 80s
invites me to go for a walk,
what in the world can you
say to that?
This next one has to be
one of my favorites. "I
would love to do that but I
have to get home for my af-
ternoon nap." The person
will look at me, notice my
maturing features and un-
derstand that I desperately
do need a nap, or some-
thing resembling my beauty
sleep.
I found one the other
week that has proved quite
beneficial. I was invited to
a function during the
evening, which turned out
to be a rather boring affair.
Once the meal was over
people were milling around
engaged in small talk. Noth-
ing bores me quicker than
small talk. Not knowing
what to do, I pondered the
situation for some time.
Then, like lightning from
the heavens, I was struck
with a brilliant idea. I went
up to my host and said, "I'm
sorry, but it is getting near
my bedtime and I have
strict orders from my doc-
tor to go to bed early You'll
have to excuse me."
It worked like a charm.
Everybody understood that


Hlair Salon

a person of my age needs to
go to bed early I do not
know who thought this up, I
think it was probably Ben-
jamin Franklin, but who-
ever it was, I owe them a
steak dinner. It has now be-
come part of my get-out-of-
boring-situations arsenal.
I was thinking about this
the other day another good
excuse popped into my
head. Somebody invited me
to come and play softball.
At the time, they caught me
off guard and I was trying to
wiggle out of such an invita-
tion. Then it dawned on me.
"I am sorry, I would like to
but my health insurance
does not cover that kind of
activity."
Whether my health insur-
ance would cover that, I
have no idea, but neither
does anybody else, only my
doctor knows for sure.
While I was pondering
this, I was reminded of a
word from the Proverbs.
"Whoso boasteth himself of
a false gift is like clouds
and wind without rain"
(Proverbs 25:14 KJV).
Whoever boasts to others
about their physical
prowess is only fooling him-
self.

who has found favor in the
eyes of God. This man is
told to build a huge boat in
which to house the male
and female species of the
earth so that after the
flood, the world can be re-
populated. Noah, as the
man is called, follows
God's bidding, builds an
ark and after 40 days and
40 nights, finally rests atop
a mountain in Turkey
called Ararat. The world is
reborn, the rainbow ap-
pears in the sky, a sign of
hope and promise and the
animals are all let off the
ark, in due time.
It's a nice story but not
original. The Sumerians of
the Mesopotamian area of

similar story called the
Epic of Gilgamesh. In this
tale, four great gods low-
ered their kingship to give
to mortals and established
cult centers for them. They
then mention a huge flood.
One god is visibly upset
with the impending deluge
and warns a pious king,
Ziusudra, who builds a
boat and sails on it for
seven days and seven
nights. When the storm
ended, he opens a window
and the rays of the sun
shine in. The sun god looks
with favor on this act and
the king is given eternal
life.
No doubt the writers of
the book of Genesis were
influenced by this story

While the ethics and
morality of the tale differ
in the two versions, the
idea of an ancient boat has
fascinated and still contin-
ues to fascinate people so
when recent discovery of
still another possible relic
of the famous ship was al-
legedly found recently by
Chinese Christian film-
maker Yeung Wing-Che-
ung, it sparked interest
throughout the world.
Finding pieces of Noah's
ark is not a new quest.

thing to authenticate any
relics they find even if it

In the case of the Chi-
nese filmmaker, the curi-
ous interest calmed down
when he would not reveal
the location of the find nor
would he submit a sample
for carbon testing. In order
for a find to be authenti-
cated, it needs to be stud-
ied scientifically This
Wing-Cheung has refused
to do.
Nearly 40 years ago, a
claim that the ark of Noah
had been found was stated
by author Violet Cummings
in a book entitled; "Noah's
Ark: Fable or Fact." In
1976, the movie and book of
the same title, "In Search
of Noah's Ark," claimed
the ark existed though the
use of modern technical


many creatures. It serves as
a meeting place for people to
gather it is a symbol of
community.
Through music, art proj-
ects, games and bible stories
the children will understand
how to build nurturing rela-
tionships with God, family
and others. Under the im-
pressive Baobab tree the
children will have the oppor-
tunity to hear the Word, be
amazed at God's wildlife cre-
ations while being part of a
supportive community.
Registration begins Tues-
day, June 1, through June 30
from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the
church office. The fee for the
week is $12 per child. Schol-
arships are available.

equipment, but then,
again, no scientific evi-
dence could be found.
In February of 1993, CBS
aired a program dealing
with the subject. It chroni-
cled the testimony of a
George Jammal, who
claimed to have seen the
ark on Mount Ararat and
was in possession of a
piece of it. It later turned
out to be a hoax. Jammal
was a paid actor and had
never even been to Turkey
As recently as March of
2006, a rock formation, em-
bedded in a glacier, was
found by a group of re-
searchers who claimed
they had found Noah's ark.
This time the find was not
on Mount Ararat, but
rather at 13,000 feet high in
the Elburz Mountains of
Iran. This group brought
back evidence to back up
their claims, pieces of rock
thought to be petrified
wood beams and video
footage of the rocky cliffs,
but again the evidence did
not pan out.
Just because the jury is
still out as to whether the
ark has been found or not,
it is the teaching of the
story, in my opinion, that
holds sway here. The
Torah is trying to impart to
us a valuable lesson: Do
evil and you will bring de-
struction upon yourselves.
You have only to look at the
oil spill in the Gulf to see
the truth of this teaching.
Judi is a former teacher
and Jewish educator She
lives in Sun Valley with her
husband, Phil.


JUDI'S


he story is a familiar
one. The Creator is
disappointed with
the humans he has created
and so decides to punish
their wickedness with a
global flood, which would
destroy all of creation. All
would be destroyed except
for one man and his family

ry to allow your
life to unfold like
a flower rather
than worrying and making
predictions which cause
stress."
Most people rush through
their lives as they try to reach
goals they've decided on. We
can't go back to the earlier
years but we can change our-
selves at this time in our
lives. Even at our ages, there
are goals some of us are try-
ing to reach. It could be doing
better in an exercise class, or
a country we plan on visiting
someday Sometimes the goal
might only be to get through
a rough day
Instead of rushing, we


should try to enjoy and expe-
rience the journey our lives
are on at the present mo-
ment. Sometimes, it means
learning lessons that take
time and patience and can't
be rushed. Instead of only
thinking of how things will be
when our expectations are
met, it is so much better to
just enjoy the simple state of
being.
Our lives might not unfold
the way we wish and in the
time we decide it should.
Human life in some ways is
no different than that of a
flower. Given the right cir-
cumstances and care, it will
grow into something beauti-
ful. Everything occurs in its
own time. We are impatient
beings and we need to slow
down. Otherwise, our lives
become more stressful than
they need to be.
We should take a page
from nature. The seasons
change and with it the flow-
ers, trees, and other living
things change with it. It all
takes time and patience.

Asset Protection- Part One


Doug
Awad


To YOUR


f you haven't done any
asset protection plan-
ning, your wealth is
vulnerable to potential
creditors and, should the
worst happen, you could
lose everything. Lawsuits,
taxes, accidents, and other
financial risks are facts of
everyday life. And though
you'd like to believe that
you're safe, misfortune
can befall even the most
careful person. What can


you do? First, identify
your potential exposure,
then implement strategies
that are designed to help
reduce that exposure
without compromising
your other estate and fi-
nancial planning needs.
First, a word about
fraudulent transfers. Part
of your overall asset pro-
tection plan might include
repositioning your assets
to make it legally difficult
for potential future credi-
tors to reach them. This
does not, however, extend
to actions that hide assets
or defraud creditors. If a
court finds that your asset
protection plans were
made with the intent to de-
fraud, it will disregard
those plans and make the
assets available to credi-
tors. How can you avoid
running afoul of the fraud-
ulent transfer laws?
Make sure your plans
are made for legitimate
business purposes or to


accomplish legitimate es-
tate planning objectives.
Carefully document the
legitimate business and
estate planning purposes
of any arrangements you
make.
Put your plans into ef-
fect before you have any
problems with creditors.
Do not implement a
plan at a time when a law-
suit is imminent or pend-
ing or at a time when you
have an outstanding debt
that you believe you can't
pay.
Where the dangers lie
Unexpected liability can
come from just about any-
where; 1. The IRS and
other tax authorities 2.Ac-
cident victims, including
victims whose injuries
were caused by the actions
of minor children or em-
ployees 3. Doctors, hospi-
tals, nursing homes, and
other health-care
providers 4.Credit card
companies 5.Business


creditors, including em-
ployees and former em-
ployees, government
agencies, suppliers, cus-
tomers, partners, share-
holders, and the general
public 6.Creditors of other
individuals where you
have co-signed or guaran-
teed obligations for those
individuals 7. Marital or
other live-in partners.
Asset protection tech-
niques: There are three
basic asset protection
techniques: insurance,
statutory protection, and
asset replacement. None
of these techniques is a
complete solution by itself,
but may make sense as
one limited component of
an asset protection plan.
Insurance: The simplest
was to cope with risk is to
shift the risk to an insur-
ance company. This
should be your first line of
defense. Before you do
anything else, review your
existing coverage. Then


consider purchasing or in-
creasing coverage on your
policies as appropriate.
You should be adequately
insured against: death and
disability 2. Medical risk,
including long-term care
3.Liabilty and property
loss (both personal and
business) 4.Other business
losses.
Statutory protection:
Creditors can't enforce a
lien or judgment against
property that is exempt
under federal or state law.
While exemption planning
can't offer total protection,
it can offer some shelter
for certain assets. Both
federal and state laws gov-
ern whether property is
exempt or nonexempt in
non-bankruptcy proceed-
ings. Generally, you can
choose whether the fed-
eral exemption or the
state exemption applies.
When looking at exemp-
tion laws, be sure to find
how much of an exemp-


tion is allowed for a par-
ticular type of property- it
may be completely exempt
or exempt only up to a cer-
tain amount or restricted
in some way. Types of
property often receiving
an exemption include:
1.Homestead (principal
residence) 2. Personal
property 3. Motor vehicle
4. IRAs, pension plans,
and Keogh plans 5. Pre-
paid college tuition plans
6. Life insurance benefits
and cash value 7. Pro-
ceeds of life insurance
8.Procees of annuities 9.
Wages
This subject is too broad
to be covered in one arti-
cle. The next edition will
cover asset placement
techniques including
trusts. If you have any
questions, please call
Doug at 352-854-6866 or by
email atDoug.Awad@Ray-
