provides information
MICHEL NORTHSEA
Special to the Citizen
In less than two hours,
more than 145,000 Marion
County residents knew
about the Marion County
Sheriff's Office recent
Hurricane Preparedness
Expo.
To test the county's new
rapid emergency notifica-
tion system, Code Red,
staff sent out a message
county-wide utilizing the
system.
The message went out to
those with land-line
phones and phone num-
bers that were already in
the established data base,
said Sgt. Robert Johnson,
deputy director of opera-
tions, division of emer-
gency management.
But Johnson and the
staff at the sheriff's office
also want to send mes-
sages to cell phone users.

Audience blasts president


at Stearns' town meeting


JIM CLARK
Editor


U.S. Rep Cliff Stearns, R-Ocala, made it
clear what he hopes will happen if the Re-
publicans regain control of the House of
Representatives in this fall's election.
"The first thing Republicans will prob-
ably do is cut off funding for Obama
health care."
Stearns conducted a series of town
meetings last Saturday, and the event at
Joy Lutheran Church was more like an
anti-President Obama rally than an infor-
mational meeting. There were a couple of
emotional moments as one women yelled
out, "We don't have an American presi-
dent, we have a Muslim president." She


complained about Obama's lack of sup- .
port for the National Day of Prayer. An-
other man shouted out a complaint that
has been heard before, about Obama's
failure to produce a birth certificate to
show he was born in the United States.
Discussion of the oil spill in the Gulf
started the meeting as Stearns showed a
video of his questioning of officials from
BP and the Coast Guard. In the video,
Stearns was quite emphatic about the fail-
ings early in the spill that have led to the
situation as it is today. "You've got to stand
up and say we could have done more," he
told the officials.
He said that 15 nations had offered im- PHOTO BY JIM CLARK

Candidates

appear at

Coalition

JIM CLARK
Editor

Candidates for Marion
County School Board got to
face the public Monday at
the first of several political
forums conducted by the
State Road 200 Coalition.
The forums will continue
at subsequent Coalition
meetings, held on the sec-
ond Monday of each month.
Nancy LeFevre Thrower,
running for District 4,
started the afternoon, say-
ing she got her dedication
to service from her father,
who spent 42 years in Ro-
tary without missing a
meeting.
"Education begins at the
dinner table," she said.
"When schools and parents
work together, kids do bet-
ter." She talked about pay
for teachers, and saying no
to state unfunded man-
dates. She said she'll visit
schools often and wants to
educate citizens to vote.
Referring to her name. she
said, "I'm a thrower and
I'm ready to pitch in."
Angie Boynton spoke
next, saying it was "time for
us to make a difference."
She said it was "incumbent
upon us to recognize and
address all the fatal flaws
in the education system."
Acting as a tutor, she
started a program to teach
children how to do every-
day things in the real
world.
Thomas Patrick, a 35-
year school employee, has
worked in various capaci-
ties, especially with facili-
ties and as a purchasing
agent. "I'm very concerned
about the School Board
when the stimulus money
runs out." He also said he
was "not very happy about

Flag retirement, essay winners
Marion County veterans groups conducted a flag retirement ceremony Sunday at Veterans Park in Ocala, in
which flags that were no longer usable were burned. As part of the Flag Day event, fourth and fifth-grade
students from around the county read their winning essays,"What the flag means to me." Hammett-Bowen
had four winners, the most of any school in the county. From the left are Julia Hallam, Hope Cotto, Eddie
Navarro and Alex Marques.

"Many people don't have land-lines any-
more, they just have a cell phone," said Chip
Wildy, explaining why registering one's con-
tact information is important.
Residents with only a cell phone must regis-
ter to learn of pending severe weather, a miss-
ing child in the neighborhood, a gas leak,
escaped convict, or other information deemed
important to the community Residents with
unlisted phone numbers should also register
their contact information with the system.
Businesses owners are also encouraged to
enter their information.
To register, go to the sheriff's office website,
marionso.com. Registering includes putting in
your name, address, e-mail address, and phone
numbers.
For those without Internet access, officials


suggest using a computer at one of the county's
public libraries to register or call Marion
County Emergency Management for help at
352-369-8135.
Registering only takes about a minute but it
could take two weeks for the submitted infor-
mation to be verified and added to the data-
base by emergency management.
For those who are not sure if they are regis-
tered, register anyway because the system will
delete any duplicate numbers, Johnson said.
For residents living in an area different than
other family members who might be con-
cerned for an elderly parent, for example, can
register their parent's phone number and ad-
dress and then list their number as the alter-
nate number so the message goes to both
places.


Message alerts can also go to e-mail ad-
dresses.
When deciding what message to send out
and to what areas of the county, sheriff's office
personnel can decide to disseminate the in-
formation by zip code or by outlining a geo-
graphic area, like in the case of a lost child,
Johnson said.
The emergency alert system is a reverse 9-1-
1-type system and was purchased through a
grant. The grant pays for the system for two
years.
Both Wildy and Johnson encourage registra-
tion into the Code Red emergency alert system
as part of hurricane preparedness.
In their roles with emergency management,
they also remind residents of the importance
of having a plan.

mediately to help with the oil spill, but
were kept away because of a bill called
the Jones Act. This bill, passed in the
1920s, requires that ships working in U.S.
waters be built in the U.S. and manned by
U.S. crews. "The president should have
waived the Jones Act and allowed the 15
countries to help."
Stearns also said that "we're making a
mistake" by "foot-dragging" when it


comes to building more nuclear power
plants. He pointed to the delays in getting
a new Progress Energy plant built in Levy
County.
One man questioned Stearns' leader-
ship, noting that the people never hear of
him taking charge in anything. That was
when he pointed out the video of the
questioning about the oil spill. He said the
Ocala daily newspaper doesn't report on


the things he does, including, he said, the
fact that as a result of his BP questioning
he was asked to speak to the National
Press Club earlier this week.
Stearns was asked about the 2012 pres-
idential race and whether he thought
there was "another Ronald Reagan" out
there to run. The congressman cited Rep.
John Thune of South Dakota, who un-
seated Tom Daschle. "He is a dark horse
that I could support."
The Arizona immigration law came in
for some discussion. "I support it 100 per-
cent," Stearns said. He added that it was
almost identical to an existing federal law,
and "all 50 states should have this law."
He said that he didn't think Florida could
get it done now: "Gov (Charlie) Crist
wouldn't support it."
Stearns also said he supports the Fair


Tax proposal.
There was some talk about the econ-
omy One woman, Candy Melton of Heath
Brook, said she moved to Florida a while
back and can't get a job, despite some pro-
fessional credentials.
Other comments from the audience in-
cluded that "we have lost our morals,"
and "too few know what war is about."
Stearns also commented on Obama's
qualifications to be president. "I don't
know how people thought he could do the
job."
Stearns is up for re-election this fall,
and has drawn two opponents. One, Don
Browning, is a Republican and will ap-
pear on the primary ballot, and the other
is Steve Schonberg, listed as no party af-
filiation.
No Democrats qualified to run.


The crowd listens to Cliff
Stearns.

the FCAT"
As far as parent involvement,
he said that elementary school
help seems to be OK, but "mid-
dle school and high school, that
is where we have a problem."
He also spoke of making sure
there was board unity
One other candidate, Dean
Blinkhorn, could not attend
and will appear next month.
District 4 incumbent Sue
Mosley has indicated she will
not run again.
In District 5, incumbent Ron
Crawford spoke from experi-
ence, saying he had worked to
hold down tax increases in the
past by using the reserve. He
talked about the building of
new Forest High School, where
he fought to bring down the
coast to where at that time it
was built at the lowest square
foot cost in the state. He said in
the past he has tried to do
things in the county without
raising taxes.
Mary Williams was the other
speaker from District 5. She is
a fourth generation Marion
County resident, and com-
mented, "the kids need to move
to the next level." She spoke of
her experience in going to Tal-
lahassee with the American
Cancer Society to speak with
legislators, and said because of
that she would have "no prob-
lem" dealing with lawmakers.
Another District 5 candidate,
Sharon Hagen, could not attend
and is expected to speak next
month.
Candidates then took ques-
tions from the audience, and
spoke on the condition of North
Marion, board members'


salaries (they're state man-
dated), transportation and
portables (all agreed they will
still be around).
Incumbent District 3 member
Bobby James was introduced,
but did not take part in the
forum since he was unopposed.
In other matters:
Members heard that a new
auto parts store, later identified
as Battery Source, was coming
to the area near where Triple
Crown homes used to be. The
address will be 7201 S.W State
Road 200.
The Friends of the Library
asked people to sign a petition
at the library to increase the
size of the building. They said
that Freedom Library is second
busiest in the children's section
in the county and second in the
distribution of books.
Parks and Recreation Month
will be in July, members were
told.
The next meeting on July 12
will feature State House candi-
dates for District 22, and Circuit
Court Judge candidates for
Group 5 (one race, two candi-
dates).

Little Theatre
Oak Run Little Theatre at
its June 7 meeting formed a
reading committee consist-
ing of Am and Peg Studer,
Frank and Diane Porterfield,
Kati Doyle, Dianne Robil-
lard, Dee Gragg, Linda Dale-
sandry and Art Schmidt.
Publishing companies pro-
vide catalogs of plays setting
forth a synopsis of their
plays. There are thousands
of such plays. This commit-
tee will sort through the cat-
alogs and settle on 40 or so
plays they feel they want to
consider. Members will read
each ofthese scripts contain-
ing several hundred pages
and write up a critique. At
their meetings they will then
dispose of the plays they feel
do not merit further consid-
eration. This is a long and ar-
duous process but they will
finally determine the one
play they feel is a good fit for
the club and our audiences.
It was decided because of
so many activies in Oak Run
around the Fourth of July
holiday and with many mem-
bers away on summer vaca-
tions we would not hold our
meeting scheduled for July 5.
We are pleased that we will
enter 11 golf carts in the
Fourth of July parade. Our


theme is "Cavalcade of
Shows" and each cart will be
decorated to commemorate
one of the plays we have pro-
duced over the past 21 years.

and Schiavo. The second
place team was Dowling,
Staiger, Soine, and the ever
popular Duke Slayton with a
score 190. Third place was
captured by the team of Ten-
nant, Gildea, Aubrey, with a
blind and a team score of 189.
193 was the score that se-
cured a fourth place tie for
the teams of Catapano, Elder,
Ducz with a blind, and Terry,
Kennedy, Berbig and a blind.
Closest to the pin was won on
the white tees by Lacey and
Smith and on the red tees by

OPINION


CITIZEN
ED ITO R I A L



Fathers play


important role

We often hear about the bad fathers, those who
couldn't care less about their children, who treat
them as a biological accident, or who leave and put
them out of their minds or, worse yet, physically and men-
tally abuse those little ones.
But across the country, there are millions of fathers who
take their responsibility toward their children seriously,
who work without much fanfare to make sure their young-
sters become good, strong, moral adults.
This Sunday is their day to shine, their day to be recog-
nized for the good that they do in forming the future lead-
ers of our nation.
It wasn't until the mid 1960s that President Lyndon John-
son officially proclaimed the third Sunday in June as Fa-
ther's Day. The day first made its appearance in the first
decade of the 20th Century when a Washington state
woman wanted to honor her father, who had raised the fam-
ily by himself following the death of his wife in childbirth.
Even now, the day takes a back seat to Mother's Day in
May, which receives a lot more notoriety and public com-
ment.
But that's what a lot of good fathers do sit back and
watch the mother and the children get a lot of the credit.
This weekend, though, give him his due. If you're fortu-
nate enough to have your dad still around, don't e-mail him,
don't text him. If you want to send him a card, that's OK.
But most importantly, give him a phone call (you know,
those old-fashioned things with a dial tone and push but-
tons). Let him hear your voice saying "Happy Father's Day"
live and in person.
Even if your dad is still around but not a part of your life,
give him a call anyway. Time has a way of healing all
wounds, and if it's been a long time since you had any con-
tact, it could be beneficial for both of you.
Finally, to all the fathers out there, even if you're not in a
position to get greetings from your children, know that so-
ciety appreciates the good work that many dads have done
over the years, and enjoy the day.
Happy Father's Day to all.

he Cliff Stearns town
meeting last Saturday was
well attended, but our
local Congressman didn't hear
anything he hadn't heard before.
The crowd spent the whole
time bashing President Obama,
with Stearns occasionally joining
in, instead of providing informa-
tion to Stearns or learning some-
thing from this very
knowledgeable representative.
Stories such as that of the
woman who moved here over a
year ago and can't find a job de-
spite having a professional back-
ground were the type of
information that Stearns needed
to hear.
What he didn't need was to
hear a woman scream, literally,
anti-Obama, anti-Muslim venom.

Hindsight is politically safer
Just because we can dance and
chew gum at the same time does-
n't mean we can operate a three
thousand pound vehicle safely
while text messaging. Even birds
have enough sense to stand still
while twittering. And they have
fewer collisions than we do.
Prohibition of text messaging
while driving is inevitable. How
long it will take in Florida and
around the nation depends on a

turing the limelight by being ob-

anything, and just made it seem
that she was totally out of control
and not a voice of reason.
Then there was the man in the
back who stood up and said he
had a hard time finding out who
his representative was, and
asked if Stearns was up for re-
election. He had to be reminded
that representatives are elected
every two years, and senators
every six years, with one-third
staggered so the entire Senate
can't be replaced at once. I guess
his civics lessons from years ago
didn't take, since that hasn't
changed for a couple of cen-
turies.
It just surprises me that people
get that emotional. Then again,
I've heard it before. I remember
an old boss of mine yelling at a
visitor to our office, "I don't care,
I just want the (bleep) out of of-
fice."
He was yelling about Richard
Nixon.
So over the years it has gone
both ways. I remember the peo-
ple yelling how Richard Nixon
was destroying the Constitution
and that our nation couldn't sur-
vive. Yet 35 years or so later,
we're still here.


And 35 years or so after
Obama, we'll still be here.
I'm disappointed in the rabble
rousers who say that certain peo-
ple are destroying our country It
shows that they have no faith in
our Constitution, in our form of
government. It shows that they
don't accept the fact that when
we don't like who's in the White
House, we can vote the rascal out
in four years.
So while I certainly can't be
counted as an Obama backer, I
do have faith. We will survive
this, the same as we survived
Nixon and Watergate, the same
as we survived Clinton and
Lewinsky, and the same as we
survived countless other scan-
dals throughout our country's
234-year history, which we will
celebrate in two weeks.
So while we need to work to
change things, we need to do it
rationally, so we don't alienate
the people who might be on the
fence and deciding which way to
go.
Stay calm, folks. You'll get a lot
more done that way

RIGHT DOWN THE CORRIDOR


Voters don't realize our nation is under distress


m. Robert E.
Beckner
ur next national elec-
tion is Nov 4,2010 and
will be here before we
know it. All 435 U.S. House
seats and 33 of the 100 U.S.
Senate seats will be up for
grabs. It's very concerning
when you live with politics
every day of your life and you
don't see many positive steps
being taken, such as new
faces and candidates coming
forth. Being sought are con-
stitutional conservatives,
and so far as is known the
Republicans have made few
moves if any, to meet with the
Tea Party officials to seek out
their ideas and suggestions
of getting rid of all the
R.I.N.O.'s holding seats
presently If they don't do it
soon, the five months re-
maining until the election
will be over and they will
lose again if they stick to
their old proven wrong ef-
forts. This has been conveyed
to the National Republican
Senate leadership and other
politicians along with the in-
formation that re-election
contributions will not be
forthcoming and without
funds they won't regain con-
trol of the Senate, as they
claim Democrats are out
raising them three to one.
They are wasting a valuable
opportunity.
It appears that too many
American voters still to this
day don't realize how much
our nation is under distress.
Yes, we see more and more
signs of life of the American
people who are beginning to


speak up and out and always
against our stand of the pres-
ident and his regime of 39+
member band of henchmen
AKA "Czars" after those in
olden day Russia. Just like
the olden ones, these current
ones are all Socialist, Marx-
ist or Communists as he's
completely violated his oath
of office on numerous occa-
sions, as well as various
members of Congress have
done, he has in 18 months
done what he wanted,
against the majority of the
public, just ignoring their
wishes on dozens of occa-
sions. I'll name just four;
health care, immigration
control, large bailouts and
taxes. Obama's "favorable"
rating, accordingto the polls,
is 42 percent, the lowest of
lows. So our hope is to take
control of the Senate and we
can then stop his destructive
bent.
While the media covers ex-
haustively the oil spill that
Obama ignored for 42 days,
or the Arizona border
protests, quietly our country
is losing its freedoms. Con-
gress, both Houses, are man-
ufacturing and passing bills
that will strip us of our free-
doms and send the country
heading into financial chaos.
That's where we need to
keep our eyes open and
write, fax or e-mail our
Florida House and Senate
Representatives and de-
mand they take action to "en-
force the laws (national)
already on the books." Phone
numbers of interest to the
White House are: comments
202456-1111, switchboard,
202456-1414 and fax 202456-
2461.
The White House is using
union goons as their arms to
attack groups speaking out
against this administration
and the president. Watch the
real news on Fox, especially
Glen Beck at 5 p.m. They are


the "only" station where
you'll see the violence, mobs
and riots here in the U.S. and
overseas daily These union
members lie and lead people
into frenzied riots and intim-
idate anyone standing in
their way. It's not for the good
of the workers; it's for their
pockets and to wield an ex-
traordinary amount of power
Their purpose is to control
health care, financial institu-
tions and every single busi-
ness in the country The
administration favorite
union SEIU has been given
Obama's blessing and are
using them to create class
warfare. When the economy
further fails, as it most cer-
tainly will, it will be the
clashing of classes that fuels
the riots on the streets. The
union organizers will be
leading the charge.
Let's face it, we are fight-
ing for our existence as a re-
public, they want global
government. We must stop
this legislative madness. In-
form and expose your rela-
tives, friends, everyone you
know, as to what is happen-
ing. If you know men and
women of honor, those that
can and will do the hard
work repealing, replacing or
reforming legislation in-
tended on destroying our
country and be sure they are
constitutional conservatives,
urge them to step up and run
for the office of their choice.
We don't have to trust a two
party system. Just because
they back the same old polit-
ical hacks, doesn't mean the
candidate is worthy for of-
fice. If things don't begin to
change soon as to candidates,
the grassroots of the Repub-
lican Party and others just
may have to suggest and rec-
ommend that we all vote
against every "incumbent" in
office. It might be necessary
because they all lie so much
we can't believe a word they


STA N G


say about their record of vot-
ing and the average voter has
no way of getting a copy of
that politician's voting
record. If they are truly any
good they can always run for
office again the next elec-
tion, it would just give them a
needed breather! We must
stay galvanized and focused
on whom we want to keep, if
any, or throw all the bums
out!
It's actually scary when we
learn that our national debt
is now 13 trillion dollars and
the president of the Federal
Reserve claims the debt is
really $104 trillion if you
count Social Security,
Medicare and obligations in-
cluding federal pensions. If
that's not enough, Ben
Bernanke of the Fed is truly
gambling with our dollar. He
has set the Fed's printing
presses on fire to pay for ag-
gressive bank and auto
bailouts and the Wall Street
crises. "No" effort has been
made to fix this big Obama
mistake!
China is well known now
claiming the global economic
dominance and we depend
on them for our debt of $895


billion to them. The Chinese
will soon, if not already, know
the dollar will fall and they
will sell off our U.S. bonds,
sending us into a further tail-
spin, aka super inflation.
Obama and his cohorts
have truly mismanaged our
economy. They played a dan-
gerous game of poker and
now their bluff has been
called. Even Warren Buffet
has said repeatedly that
America is on an unstop-
pable path toward inflation.
How many honest econo-
mists do we need to tell us
this? The mainstream media
has continued to sleep
through this threat. Nor has
anyone mentioned that just
since 2008 we've seen a star-
tling 135 percent increase in
the money supply
Obama and Congress think
they can regain prosperity
with "intentional" inflation.
Obama's next solution will be
to tax his way out of our prob-
lems. On Dec. 31,2010, one of
the most massive tax in-
creases in history will begin.
That's when the Bush tax
cuts expire, which will be an
immediate 10 percent tax in-
crease across the board for


citizens of all categories.
Capital gains tax will rise by
almost 50 percent and tax on
dividends almost as much as
250 percent! Also, Obama is
openly talking about a new
"value-added-tax," which is
just a national sales tax
which if it follows all of Eu-
ropean countries could add
anywhere up to 25 percent
on "every item" an American
purchases, it's a hidden tax
the politicians obviously
love.
We'll end this with just a
little more bad news. The
U.S. Treasury says each tax-
payer (you) will have to fork
over $117,000 in order to pay
off our national debt. Also, 95
percent is how much value
the U.S. dollar has lost in the
past 100 years.
Thomas Jefferson said,
"When injustice becomes
law, resistance becomes
duty"
Robert E. Beckner lives in

PEOPLE FIRST



The American people
have been victimized
by the rich and pow-
erful, supported by Repub-
lican administrations and
Congress. The middle class
is a threatened class. While
corporate America contin-
ues its attempt at word eco-
nomic domination, the U.S.
worker is being left out.
Over the past three
decades, 20 percent of citi-
zens managed to accumu-
late nearly 90 percent of
the nation's wealth. During
this period, workers' in-
comes have not kept up
with the actual inflation
rate of almost 1,000 per-
cent, requiring two or
three incomes per family
to maintain their standard
of living. Millions of good
jobs were transferred to
third world countries also.
In the coming decade, due
to the outlandish tax cuts
for the wealthy, and two
wars, along with record
deficits, all added to the
national debt, it will result
in at least 1000 percent in-
flation over the next
decade, three times the
rate over the past three
decades.
The Consumer Price
Index (CPI) doesn't reflect
the actual inflation rate be-
cause it eliminates highest
inflationary items. As long
as the American people
allow themselves to be


treated in this manner,
they will be ruled by
tyrants, a corporate Amer-
ica consumed by a creed of
greed. And there will be no
middle class any longer, ex-
cept those who bow to their
masters, the new royalty of
our former great nation.
Along comes a group
called "The Tea-Baggers."
Their members act like
they have been in a Rip
Van Winkle state for going
on 10 years. Where were
they while the Bush regime
was sending this country
into a permanent state of
decline, giving the wealthi-
est citizens huge tax cuts at
the expense of everyone
else and fighting two wars
on credit? Where were
they when the country was
taken into an illegal and
unjustified war with Iraq,
which they themselves ad-
mitted was an illegal war?
Didn't that constitute a war
crime? Where were they
when the U.S. Constitution
was being violated? Isn't
that considered a crime?
Where were they when the
Bush regime was violating
the UN Charter when the
U.S. was a member? Wasn't
that a crime? Where were
they when The Geneva
Conventions on the Treat-
ment of Prisoners was vio-
lated? Wasn't that a war
crime? Where were they
when they killed the writ of
habeas corpus? Where
were they when federal
and international laws and
treaties were violated?
Where were they when it
became evident that Bush
had no command whatso-
ever of the English lan-
guage and invented new
words of his own, and often
reversed the meaning of
his intended statements?
Where were they when the
Republican majority in
Congress acted as a rubber
stamp approving every dis-
astrous policy of his?


The worst fault of Presi-
dent Obama is being un-
able to perform miracles to
repair all of the damage
done to this country
throughout the eight years
of the disastrous oil-men's
regime. Though he could
use a little spice in his
grits, he wasn't elected as a
deepwater drilling engi-
neer. If we, the taxpayers,
bailed out the banks with
our tax dollar, and quite
possibly BP; are we not
then, stock holders? If so,
when do we receive our
dividends? Could this not
be a kind of back-handed
route to socialism? Does
anybody care to explain or
come up with an answer?
Your writer gave her
opinion a couple of months
ago when this was brought
up. The book, which she
read is one of many on the
same subjects. How we are
going to have to get on the
ball with clean energy and
global warming because in
2050 there are going to be 9
billion people on the
Earth. If we don't have
enough energy, people all
over will be rationed on
water and electricity. It
talks about the debt, what
China will do to us in the
long run if we don't handle
the industry problem in
the near future. It is almost
the same book Tom Fried-
man wrote, "Hot, Flat and
Crowded" also read along
with many, many others on
this level. The same identi-
cal subject that many true
experts are telling us must
soon happen. We should all
be happy that our presi-
dent reads these informa-
tional books by experts.
Read them before com-
menting on something you
do not know. Or are people
guessing at what it means if
they care at all? People are
just guessing at what they
think it means.

Read what it says
The term "separation of
church and state" is used so
much there are citizens who
believe it is part of our Con-
stitution. Now we can't pray
in school or in public, we
can't have Christmas manger
scenes, etc. These practices
are declared so harmful to
our society that on a regular
basis the ACLU or other un-
godly organizations are ex-
panding the ban on our using
the name of God in any way.
Efforts to remove "In God we
trust" from our money and
other places are constant.
Why not look at just what our
Constitution really says?
Amendment 1: "Congress
shall make no law respecting
an establishment of religion,
or prohibiting the free exer-
cise thereof."
I'm just a simple Georgia
boy, and can't see how any-
one with a brain can inter-
pret that to mean separation
of church and state. If any-
thing, we are prohibiting the
free exercise of religion by
denying our rights to pray in
school or any other public
places. How we allowed this
to happen is beyond me and
I'm ashamed of our not tak-
ing a stand for God!
In case you are interested
in what the Bible says about
this, I invite you to attend
Berean Baptist Church's July
4 service beginning 10:45
a.m. Our pastor is preaching
on this very subject. Our lo-
cation is 4800 S.W 20th St.,
Ocala.
What a glorious way to cel-
ebrate America's birth and
our return to the godly prin-
ciples that made this country
great.

County pay raise
I read that Sheriff Ed Dean
would give 900 of his employ-
ees a well deserved pay raise
for the work that they do pro-
tecting the residents of Mar-
ion County. This is at a time
when 90,000 of the working
residents in our county are
supporting 18,000 county res-
idents who are presently un-
employed.
To pay for this, raising
taxes will be needed to give
these public servants their
well deserved increases in
wages. This is an attempt to
try to keep up with the fire-
fighters who earn $7,000 a
year more than the deputies
of our county. Many retired
residents of this county just
don't have the money to pay
for these increases for county
employees who are compet-
ing against one another for
our tax dollars.
Marion County is home to
many retirees who did not see
a cost of living adjustment in
their Social Security checks
to help them keep even with
inflation. This is also at a time
when these same retirees
were forced to pay as much as
a 100 percent increase for
their prescription drugs to
help keep them alive.
We are all sacrificing dur-
ing these trying times but to
be forced to work two and
three jobs for each family to
stay in their homes when you
are in your 70s and 80s is just
to much to ask. The law en-
forcement officers and the
fire department employees
are near and dear to our
hearts but there is only so
much we can do,
To raise taxes to pay for
these increases may be the
only way to bring parity be-
tween these two county gov-


ernment departments but
they must realize what im-
pact it will impose on those
they have sworn to protect.

The trouble we're in
Obama is a student of Saul
Alinsky...he taught him as a
professor. Saul Alinski loved
Cloward and Piven. The 2
professors were at the sign-
ing of Clinton's "motor Voter"
act. Do your own research,
but nothing makes sense any-
more. Keep working on your
emergency supplies like food
storage...this is a worst case
scenario, but better to be pre-
pared for the worst than to be
caught unaware. It's all un-
sustainable, the debt, the cor-
ruption, the entitlements.
where does it all end. We
have 13 Trillion in debt...we
are going to leave that to our
grandchildren's children to
pay off. For What?
It is a tremendous mistake
to think that the disaster in
the Gulf of Mexico will help
convince Americans of
Barack Obama's incompe-
tence. Obama's true agenda
is so insidious that even his
inability to handle a crisis
serves his greater strategy.
And that strategy has a
name: it is the Cloward-
Piven Strategy. Named for
the two Leftist sociology pro-
fessors who formulated it, its
purpose is to bring about the
demise of capitalism by over-
loadingthe system, largely by
making more people desper-
ate and dependent on the
government.
Thus, Cloward-Piven's
goals are served by more and
more aliens flooding across
the border and filling jails,
emergency rooms and wel-
fare rolls. It is also served by
the mortgage crisis; in fact,
Professors Cloward and


Piven were the creators of
ACORN (Association of Com-
munity Organizations for Re-
form Now), which helped
pressure banks to implement
the lending policies that pre-
cipitated that crisis. But
Cloward-Piven seeks a finan-
cial crisis far wider-ranging
and more encompassing than
a mere mortgage meltdown.
So if the oil spill in the Gulf
manages to destroy the fish-
ing and tourist industries in
that region, shut down oil
drilling, raise the price of oil
and of food all over the coun-
try, and bring more and more
Americans to a financial
breaking point and thus de-
pendent on food stamps and
other government programs,
Obama and Co. will smile
and nod at one another as the
Cloward-Piven strategy hums
merrily along.
Anything that puts a
greater strain on government
services and the inability
of those services, through in-
competence and complex bu-
reaucracy to actually
improve things advances the
goals of Cloward-Piven. The
more desperate and demor-
alized the American people
become, and the more preoc-
cupied we are with simple
survival, the better our new
"leaders" like it, and the
closer they get to assuming
total and complete control of
every aspect of our lives.
Read about the Cloward-
Piven Strategy in greater de-
tail in an American Thinker
article from November 23,
2009, "Cloward-Piven Gov-
ernment" byJames Simpson.
Simpson explains that
even the patently unconstitu-
tional laws and policies im-
plemented by the Obama
regime are a deliberate part
of the strategy, because in ad-
dition to using financial


crises to bring about the de-
sired changes in our way of
life, it is necessary to render
our Constitution impotent
and irrelevant.
If you think the Gulf oil
spill spells trouble for
Obama, you're just not look-
ing at as big a picture as he's
looking at, and you just don't
realize how much trouble
we're all in.

Help our own BP stations
I've heard a lot about
boycotting local BP sta-
tions because of the oil
spill. This just shows what
I've always been taught,
"average is not too bright."
WOW! Can you imagine
such idiotic thinking.
These people didn't have
anything to do with the
spill. They're victims too.
Marion County citizens
boycotting local BP sta-
tions are hurting our own
neighbors. So, do we add to
this stupidity. Absolutely
not. So you not too bright
people get your heads out
of the sand and get on
board to help these BP
service stations. If I'm not
mistaken the corporate of-
fices are on the other side
of the pond. We had to bail
them out in the 1940s, so I
guess we have to do it
again. It's not "Rule Britan-
nica," it's "What's Good for
the USA" I don't know
what the reference to Bri-
tannica means and I don't
mean dictionaries.
We have a BP station at
the intersection of State
Road 200 and 103rd Street,
and I see no reason why I
or anyone else should boy-
cott this station. We buy
local.

Asset Protection- Part Three


Doug
Awad


To YOUR


In this series about asset
protection, thus far we
have reviewed insurance
and placement of corpora-
tion and limited liability
companies and partnerships.
In this issue we will discuss
trusts and State homestead
laws.
Irrevocable trusts: As the
name implies, an irrevocable
trust is a trust that you can't re-
voke or change. Once you have
established the trust, you can't
dissolve the trust, change the
beneficiaries, remove assets
from the trust, or change its
terms. In short, you lose con-
trol of the assets once they be-
come part of the trust. But,
because the assets are out of

As for the Gulf of Mexico
and its environs, we can't
think of it without experienc-
ing a deep ache in the gut We
cannot look at the horrific
damage done to the birds, an-
imals, fish and whatever may
have been at the bottom of
the water without breaking
into tears. Families who for


your control, they're generally
beyond the reach of creditors,
too. Unlike an irrevocable
trust, a revocable trust pro-
vides the assets in the trust
with absolutely no legal pro-
tection from your creditors.
Oflhoore(reign)trusts: It's
possible to transfer assets to
trusts that are formed in for-
eign countries. While the laws
of each country are different,
they share one similarity- they
make it more difficult for cred-
itors to reach trust assets. In
order for a creditor to be able
to reach assets held in a trust, a
court must have jurisdiction
over the trustee or the trust as-
sets. Where the trust is prop-
erly established in a foreign
country, obtaining jurisdiction
over the trustee in a U.S. court
will not be possible. The credi-
tor must commence the suit in
the off-shore jurisdiction. Typ-
ically, a local attorney will not
take the case on a contingency
basis. If a creditor wants to pur-
sue litigation in the offshore ju-
risdiction, it must be prepared
to pay the foreign attorney up
front. Many jurisdictions re-
quire the creditor to post a


countless years have been
making their living along the
despoiled coast and Gulf are
frantic with the knowledge
that whatever is done to
ameliorate will not alter this
disaster. The worst has hap-
pened and there's more to
come. Will BP take care of
them? Men and women who
live like royalty on their mil-
lions of dollar salaries are
wringing their hands. What
good are they? Maybe it is


bond to guarantee the payment
of any costs that the court may
impose on the creditor These
obstacles have the general ef-
fect of deterring creditors from
pursuing action.
Domestic self-settled trusts:
The laws ofAlaska, Delaware,
and a few other states enable
you to set up a self-settled
trust. Alaska was the first state
to enact such an anti-creditor
trust act. Delaware soon fol-
lowed. A self-settled trust is a
trust in which a person who
creates the trust (the grantor)
can name himself as the pri-
mary beneficiary These trusts
give the trustee wide latitude
to pay as much or as little of
the trusts assets to any or all of
the eligible beneficiaries as
the trustee deems appropri-
ate. The key tot his type of
protective trusts that the
trustee has the discretion to
distribute or not distribute the
trust property. Creditors can
only reach property that the
beneficiary has the legal right
to receive. Therefore, the
trust property will not be con-
sidered the beneficiary's
property, and any creditors of

its officers under lock and

let the real workers try to re-
pair this insult to the earth.

come up with any solution?

published. Back to American

swers will have the brains

the beneficiary will be unable
to reach it. Domestic self-set-
tled trusts may not be as ef-
fective as a foreign trust
because a judgment from an
individual state must be hon-
ored by another state under
the U.S. Constitution.
State Homestead Laws:
The federal Homestead Act,
which was enacted in 1862, of-
fered 160-acre parcels of land
to anyone willing to settle on
them. After 5 years, these
"homesteaders" would be-
come owners of the land, as
long as certain conditions
were met Though this act was
repealed in 1976, many states
have enacted their own home-
stead laws that may protect
some or all of the equity in
your home against certain
creditors claims. Ahomestead
filing will protect your home
from most debts (including
judgments) that arise after the


homestead becomes effective.
It generally will not protect a
home from debts incurred be-
fore the homestead status at-
taches. State homestead laws
vary widely from state to state.
Some offer property tax relief
or other tax considerations to
real estate owners. Generally,
the property you homestead
must be a property that you
own and occupy as your pri-
mary residence. Homestead
laws exempt from attachment
a certain amount ofthe equity
value in the homestead prop-
erty. Florida offers unlimited
protection. Even a multi-mil-
lion-dollar estate is safe from
attachment by certain unse-
cured creditors. Some credi-
tors are not subject to
homestead law protection:
mortgages, second mortgages,
home equity loans or lines of
credit secured by the prop-
erty, mechanic's lines for

bigger and bigger over the

nothing else happened,

suddenly decided to bloom

Living a balanced life
should be easier for
retirees than work-
ing people but that's not al-
ways the case. Some of us
are still prone to putting
chores before fun. Only
having good times can get
just as stale as only doing
chores and the like.
It's important to make
time to learn, exercise,
keep up with chores, and
play, whatever that is for
you. We now have the time
to engage in hobbies, see
the latest movies, but also
balance our checkbook
and keep our living quar-
ters neat and tidy
Balanced living is when
you are happy working and
playing equally Living in
the present, and not ob-
sessing about the past or
future, allows us to appre-
ciate right now and find joy
in whatever we are doing.
"Patience leads to mindful-
ness and mindfulness
brings you in balance".
Simplicity in all things is
the most important part of
life balance. It helps to re-
duce the time we spend on
chores. Connecting only
with people you truly care
about and getting rid of the
ones you don't, simplifies
your relationships.
If you live your life in
balance, your life will be-
come one of joy, happiness,
and serenity.
The Roman Spring
of Mrs. Stone
This was the last movie
of the Vivien Leigh film se-
ries at Live Oak Hall. Be-
fore watching it, Dr. Pat
Wellington spoke about the
movie. She also gave us
some more background on
Leigh.
Tennessee Williams
wrote the story when he
was 38 years old. Lottie
Lenya had a part in the
movie as a pimp. A very
young Warren Beatty co-
stared as Vivien Leigh's
gigolo. "Grieving middle-
age widow falls for young
Italian gigolo". Pat men-
tioned that this was the
worst time in Leigh's life.
She was in her early 50s
but looked older. That's
probably because she was
a four-pack-a-day smoker
and had chronic TB.
Watching these movies is
a great way to spend a cou-
ple of afternoon hours.
They are in black and
white which makes sad
movies even sadder. This
one didn't have the usual
Hollywood ending but
stayed true to the story
line.

BOOK



ust one year earlier,
13-year-old Johnny
Merrimon had been a
happy teenager with loving
parents and a close rela-
tionship with his twin
Alyssa. But his sister's ab-
duction has changed all
that. His father abandoned
the family out of guilt and
recrimination from his
wife because he was late
picking up Alyssa from
school and she walked
home alone. Johnny's
beautiful mother, Kath-
leen, is now addicted to
prescription drugs and al-
cohol and has taken up
with an abusive former
boyfriend.


The experience has been
a painful lesson: "Johnny
learned early He learned
that there was no safe
place, not the backyard or
the playground, not the
front porch or the quiet
road that grazed the edge
of the town. No safe place
and no one to protect you."
Everyone tells Johnny to
get on with his life because
Alyssa is dead, but the kid
is not buying it. Some-
where, he believes, Alyssa
is alive and waiting to be
found. One witness,
Johnny's best friend Jack
Cross, saw her enter a van.
Other than that the case
has gone cold. Sharing
Johnny's torment is Detec-
tive Clyde Hunt who con-
siders his failure to find
Alyssa a personal one. His
obsession with the disap-
pearance has destroyed his
own family, alienating both
his wife, who left him, and
his son, who stayed but
barely speaks to him.
Determined to find his
sister but armed solely
with county maps, Johnny
takes huge risks exploring
the dark side of his home-
town. Fearing for the boy's
safety, Hunt has no choice


but to pair up with him.
This excellent thriller is
told from multiple per-
spectives and the intensity
of the characters pulls the
reader along as if in a tor-
rent by the force and bril-
liance of the prose. This
dynamic, solid story is in-
credibly well done.
And even though this rel-
atively new prize-winning
author provides ample clues
and foreshadowing, the end-
ing nevertheless surprises.
Highly recommended.

. Things my father never told me


Rev.
James L.
Snyder


OUT To


This is my first Fa-
ther's Day to cele-
brate without my
father. Earlier this year he
passed away after a long
battle with heart and lung
disease. It will be a rather
somber day for me this
year, but I carry in my
heart all those things we
shared while he was alive.
My father taught me
many things, especially
when I was young. He
taught me how to ride a bi-
cycle, hunt and fish and
then how to drive a car All
those things the person
carries with him the rest
of his life.
I am reminded of what
Mark Twain said about his
father. "When I was a boy
of 14, my father was so ig-
norant I could hardly
stand to have the old man
around. But when I got to
be 21, I was astonished at
how much the old man
had learned in seven
years." That sums up
every person's experience
with his or her father.
Most people do not appre-
ciate their father until


after he is gone. Then they
remember all of the things
that are a part of their life
that came from their fa-
ther. That is a shame.
I remember when my
father gave me the old tra-
ditional father and son
"birds and bees" talk. It
went something like this.
My father sat down with
me on the back porch and
said, "I guess I need to
have a little talk with
you..." then there was a
long period of awkward si-
lence... "about the birds
and the bees."
I prepared myself for a
very long lecture and in
the back of my mind I was
wondering if the old man
knew as much as I did
about the "birds and the
bees." When you are 16,
there is not anything that
you do not know. I was
more than willing to share
with him my expertise in
this area of human activ-
ity.
Father cleared his
throat and then said, "The
birds and the bees is
something you need to
know about. The one will
peck you to death and the
other will sting you to
death. My advice is stay
away from both and you'll
have a happy life." With
that, he got up and went
back to doing whatever he
was doing. I never did get
around to thanking him
for that piece of advice. It
took me years to under-
stand it.


In thinking back on my
father, there were a few
things I wish he had told
me.
For example, it would
have been nice if he had
told me that women are
not men. I did find this out
on my own after some
time. This has nothing to
do with biology but every-
thing to do with psychol-
ogy. He could have
warned me that at least
once a month women are
psycho. Men have no idea
what is going on and every
month it returns like a bad
penny.
I also would have liked
to have known that an ar-
gument is not won the day
of the argument. Men
have the idea that you
speak your mind and then
let bygones be bygones.
Women, especially wives,
have no concept of letting
bygones be bygones. My
father should have told
me that no man could ever
win any argument with a
woman. The sweetest and
most powerful two words
in all of the English lan-
guage is, "Yes, dear"
Something else I had to
learn the hard way and I
wish my father had told
me about it. Never sur-
prise your wife with an ex-
pensive gift for no reason.
Suspicion is a hard thing
to dispel. You think you
are doing something nice
and spontaneous and she
thinks you have done


something naughty and
suspicious.
My father could have
saved me a lot of grief if he
would have told me never
to ask your wife, "How's
your day been?" When
you do interject such a
query, your wife will give
you a minute-by-minute,
conversation by conversa-
tion account of her entire
day, and please, do not in-
terrupt her. Any man who
can keep up with that
should be given the Nobel
Peace Prize.
Another thing that
would have been helpful
if my father would have
explained to me is that
anything cute and comes
as a bundle of joy will cost
a fortune and keep on
costing for the rest of your
life. These "bundles of
joy" look so cute in the


hospital but after you
bring them home the real
cost begins. If we are
going to have comprehen-
sive health insurance, it
should include the ex-
penses of raising these ba-
bies after we bring them
home from the hospital.
Then there is shopping.
Oh my soul, it would have
been so beneficial if my
father could have sat
down and explained to me
the concept of shopping
from a woman's point of
view. Shopping is an art
no man can really aspire
to. I cannot tell you how
much it has cost me for my
wife to save $3.99.
I guess my father did the
best he could. That re-
minds me of my Heavenly
Father. "If ye then, being
evil, know how to give
good gifts unto your chil-


dren, how much more
shall your Father which is
in heaven give good things
to them that ask him?"
(Matthew 7:11 KJV).
In celebrating Father's
Day, let us not forget to
thank our Heavenly Fa-
ther for all his good gifts.

June is bustin'out with harmony


PETER MUSELLA
Special to the Citizen
We sang for our supper!
Members of the Ocala Big
Sun Chorus and Good Vi-
brations quartet (plus one,
if you paid attention) sere-
naded shoppers at the
Publix Shopping Center at
Canopy Oak on Saturday,
June 5. We sang outside
(whew, it was hot) and in-
side the store (it was cool).
Shoppers and employees
enjoyed the entertain-
ment. Special thanks to
Publix for their coopera-
tion and support. We per-
formed to publicize the
upcoming "Barbershop
Extravaganza" at On Top
of the World Cultural Cen-
ter
First, many thanks to the
On Top of the World Cul-
tural Center for presenting
a very special successful
afternoon of Barbershop
harmony, featuring five of
the best of Florida's quar-
tets on their way to inter-
national competition in
Philadelphia this July.
Special thanks and ap-
plause to our own John
Spang for all his hard work
and dedication to barber-
shop harmony, making it
all possible. Good job,
John. Our "straw hats" go
off to you. More than 600
people attended the after-
noon show on Saturday,


June 12. Members of the
Ocala Big Sun Chorus led
the cheering section. The
audience enjoyed an after-
noon of magnificent har-


mony by very talented
quartets and we all wish
them good luck on their
journey to competition.
Members of Ocala Big


Sun Chorus would like to
wish all the dads out there
a very happy Father's Day.
Have a great day. We'll be
back in September with re-


ally big news. Enjoy your
summer. Stay cool and HARMONY
healthy, and remember
"Keep the Whole World
Singing."

YOUR DENTAL
HEALTH








byM.E Hampton, D.D.S.
PROFESSIONALLY
SUPERVISE TOOTH
WHITENING
Even if you're considering
using an over-the-counter tooth
whitener, the American Dental
Association recommends that
you consult with your dentist.
This recommendation is made
because tooth-whitening
systems containing carbamide
peroxide or hydrogen peroxide
can be uncomfortable for those
with sensitive teeth or gum
recession. In addition, most
products will only whiten
natural tooth enamel, which
means that the presence of
tooth-colored fillings, veneers,
crowns, or partial dentures
may yield uneven results. With
this in mind, the dentist can
evaluate whether tooth-
whitening is a good idea for
your teeth. While tooth
whitening usually reduces
most stains caused by age,
smoking, and regular coffee/
tea drinking, it will not remove
tooth discoloration caused by
the use of tetracycline in
children under age 8.
We'll be happy to answer
any questions you may have on
the subject of tooth whitening.
Your smile care needs deserve
an exceptional dental office,
with a professional care team
who provides leading-edge
care and more comforts than
you ever thought possible in a
dentist's office. At the office of
Mark E.Hampton,DJDS we
want to do more than meet
your expectations we want to
exceed them. We're located at
11902 Illinois Street,
Dunnellon, where we make it a
point to get to know you and
the specific needs of your
family. It's important to us.
Please call 352-489-5071 to
schedule an appointment.
Having nice looking teeth
gives a boost to health and
happiness. "We're Dedicated
to Excellent Dentistry."
P.S. Tooth-whitening
products are not recommended
for children under age 16;
pregnant women (or women
who are breast-feeding): or
people with sensitive teeth,
gum disease, or worn tooth
enamel.

Some Father's Day humor


IDick
Frank


PUN


ather's Day is Sun-
day Almost 100
years have elapsed
since the first Father's Day
was celebrated. In the
1900s fathers didn't have it
nearly as good as fathers of


today; but they did have a
few advantages:
Back then, if a father put
a roof over his family's
head, he was a success.
Today, it takes a roof, deck,
pool, and 3-car garage.
Back then, fathers could
help their children with
their school work. Today,
fathers rely on their kids to
teach them how to work
the computer and set the
VCR.
Back then, a father
waited for the doctor to tell
him when the baby ar-
rived. Today, a father must
wear a smock, know how to
breathe, and make sure the
video camera is loaded.
Back then, fathers
passed on clothing to their
sons. Today, kids wouldn't
touch Dad's clothes if they


were sliding naked down
an icicle.
Back then, a father came
home from work to find his
wife and children at the
supper table. Today, a fa-
ther comes home to a note,
'Jimmy's at baseball,
Cindy's at gymnastics, I'm
at adult-ed; pizza in
fridge."
A tall tale
The father knocked on
the bathroom door where
his teenage daughter had
been taking a bath for over
an hour. "Cindy! Just how
long will you be in that
bathtub?"
From the other side of
the door came the reply:
"Oh Daddy! Water doesn't
affect your height. I'm still
5-4!"


Checking up on dad
A college boy wrote his
father, "I can't understand
why you call yourself a
kind parent when you send
me no money You haven't
mailed me a check in al-
most two months. What
kind of kindness do you
call that?"
"That," the old man
replied, "is unremitting
kindness."
Pop corn
My father always pro-
posed a toast before he dis-
ciplined me.
"That's funny! What was
it?"
"Bottoms up, son!"
She got her good looks
from her father. He's a
plastic surgeon.
"Daddy, Daddy, can I
have another glass of water

please?"
"But I've given you 10
glasses of water already!"
"Yes, but the bedroom is
still on fire!"
I was going to buy a copy
of "The Power of Positive
Thinking" and then I
thought, what good would
that do?
Son: "Dad, my teacher
says I should have an ency-
clopedia."
Father: "Nonsense,
you'll walk to school the
same as I did."
One time my kids wanted
to surprise me with a good
breakfast in bed on Fa-
ther's Day They put a cot
in the kitchen.
Father to unwelcome
suitor: "I don't want my
daughter tied to a hopeless
idiot all her life."

Suitor: "Of course not,
sir. Then I take it I have
your consent?"
The human race
A little girl asked her
mother, "How did the
human race begin?"
The mother answered,
"God made Adam and Eve
and they had children."
Two days later, the girl
asked her father the same
question, "How did the
human race begin?"
The father answered,
"Many years ago, there
were monkeys from which
the human race evolved."
The confused girl re-
turned to her mother and
said, "Mom, how is it possi-
ble that you told me the
human race was created by
God and Dad said it devel-
oped from monkeys?"
The mother answered,
"Well, dear, it's very sim-
ple. I told you about my
side of the family and your
father told you about his."
Real help?
"Dad, will you help me
with my homework?"
"I'm sorry," replied the
father, "It wouldn't be
right."
"Well," said the boy, "at
least you could try"


'IC True lies

six-year-old for having told

rather brightly, asked:
"How old were you when
S you started, Dad?"
Point of View

"Mother, where are all the

"Why, Son," she replied,

That sinking feeling



Visiting the natural sinkhole in Ocala National Forest


MICHEL NORTHSEA
Staff Writer
Through the woods and
down a mile-long bumpy,
dirt road in the Ocala Na-
tional Forest, there's a
trailhead for the Lake
Eaton Sinkhole Trail.
Recently, as another
outing offered through
Marion County Parks and
Recreation Department, a
group of hikers were led
through the mile-plus long
trail to the 80-feet-deep,
450-feet-wide sinkhole.
The hike was led by
Michigan-born, Florida-
raised Kevin Congdon.
Much of his youth was
spent running in the for-
est. As an adult, he con-
tracts with the Florida
Wildlife Commission to
help with its summer
camps to teach teens the
joy of the outdoors, and
Marion County Parks and
Recreation to lead hikes
as needed.
"I've learned through
experience," he said
pointing out a possible
hiding place for an East-
ern diamondback rat-
tlesnake in among fallen,


rotting pine trees. Snakes
try to camouflage them-
selves to avoid falling prey
to a hawk.
Along the hike, Congdon
encouraged taking advan-
tage of the recreational
opportunities offered in
the 385,000-acre forest. He
suggested just driving
some of the 1,500 miles of
dirt roads in the forest and
looking for wildlife, in-
cluding deer and bears.
Maps are available at the
visitor's center. All dirt
roads in the forest are in
grid fashion linking back
to three different high-
ways: State Road 40,
County Road 314 or State
Road 19.
During hunting season,
Nov. 4 through Jan. 2,
much of the national for-
est is closed to non-
hunters. The exception is
the Juniper Springs
Recreation Area, open
year-round to visitors.
An overlook platform,
with benches for resting,
gives visitors an opportu-
nity to see the top edge of
the sinkhole without walk-
ing down 10 flights of
stairs. Those continuing

Trip leader Kevin Congdon, said that many of the big
pines in the forest are being pushed out by scrub oaks.


the walk find tempera-
tures 15 degrees cooler
and a variety of trees, in-
cluding a magnolia tree,
as they descend the stairs.
For Carrie Thomas of
Ocala, the hike was her
first trip with the Marion
County Parks and Recre-
ation and her first venture
into the national forest.
She signed up for the hike
because she wanted exer-
cise and something a little
more adventurous than a
walk in the neighborhood.
She and her mother,
Carol Sieg, both said they
were signed up for other
hikes in the fall.
Walking along the foot-
path among scrub oaks,
pine trees and blue skies
overhead, Steve and Pam
Shinnickboth agreed they
enjoyed the hiking oppor-
tunities the county offers.
The Shinnicks have
taken the kayak trips pro-
vided by the county, too.
Although the county
won't offer any more hik-
ing trips until the fall, they
offered five hikes since
January and 10 kayaks
this winter/spring, said
Cathy Norris, recreational
manager for Marion
County Park and Recre-
ation.
This summer the county
offers a "summer series"
of kayak trips to Juniper
Springs Creek, two differ-
ent trips on the Ock-
lawaha River, the
Rainbow River and Silver
River. Those trips are $25
each and include kayaks,
paddles, life jackets and
snacks.
Check out the county's
recreational opportuni-
ties through marioncoun-
tyfl.org and follow the
department links to parks,
or call 352-671-8560.


Karen Sanders was one of the first down the 10 flights of steps leading to the obser-
vation deck near the bottom of the Lake Eaton Sinkhole Trail. Other hikers were tak-
ing photos of the magnolia growing in the sinkhole. Temperatures are about 15
degrees cooler inside the sink in the summertime.

N Women and retirement


IS ^Herb
E I Silverman

FINANCIAL


Planning for retire-
ment is a complex
undertaking for all
of us, but for women, it's
especially challenging.
One reason is that women


live longer than men, so
they have more years of
retirement to prepare for.
Another is that they spend
more of their active years
out of the workforce in
many cases, raising chil-
dren or caring for aging
relatives which gives
them less opportunity to
build up retirement sav-
ings and private pensions.
As a result, women wind
up more dependent than
men on Social Security to
pay for retirement, and
Social Security often isn't


enough. On average, it
pays just 40 percent of
what a wage earner made
in her working years. 1 But
as a woman, you can im-
prove your prospects for a
secure retirement through
smart long-term planning:
Start saving on a reg-
ular basis. Even $20 a
week can add up to a de-
cent nest egg, especially if
you start young.
Take retirement into
account when choosing a
job. Ask potential employ-
ers if they offer a retire-


ment plan and/or pension
plan. Find out how they
work. Look for employers
that match at least part of
your contribution to a re-
tirement account.
Work as long as you
can. The longer you earn
income, the more time
you have to amass savings.
The older you are when
you stop working, the
fewer years of retirement
you'll need to budget for.
Delaying the start of So-
cial Security benefits up
to age 70 will result in a


larger monthly check, too.
Purchase a life insur-
ance policy. Permanent
life insurance provides
guaranteed death benefit
protection for your loved
ones in the event of your
death. Additionally, it of-
fers valuable "living" ben-
efits and tax advantages.
For example, as a poli-
cyholder, you can access
accumulated cash value
through loans and with-
drawals to supplement
your retirement income.
Plus, these funds can also


be used for college ex-
penses, as collateral for a
small business loan, or any
other happily anticipated
or unexpected event
Using life insurance is a
little-known option that
can be a big help for
women down the road.

party article is being pro-

OTOW photographer has display

Mike Roppel, a resident of On Top of the World, has a display of photo-
R i graphs at the Master the Possibilities just outside On Top of the World on
S Southwest 80th Street. The pictures were taken in St. Petersburg, Russia,
last summer.
He has been a member of Shutterbugs since August of 2006. His voyage
to this group began as a young man. He has used a wide variety of cameras
2 ./ including a Brownie Hawkeye, an Instamatic, a 2/14 press camera, a 4x5, '
35mm, a 30x30 Graphic Arts camera and now he uses a digital camera.
,? His photographic experience included being a yearbook photographer
in college and a Still Ground photographer with the Air Force. After his re-
lease he worked for a photofinisher and then attended New York Insti-
tute of Photography in NYC.
While living in New Hampshire for 26 years, he had his own darkroom
and studio in the house. He then got a position as a graphic arts photog-
rapher primarily working on wallpaper designs. He also became a mem-
ber ofthe New Hampshire Professional Photographers Association where
-- his various officer positions led to be the president for two years.
Following his move to Ocala, he has been regularly published in the On
Top of the World monthly newspaper and the South Marion Citizen.
My wife took the photo with the display and our former exchange stu-
dent Nadya Ilyina took the other one. :

Questions and answers about the college's new name


What is the new name of the college?
CFCC has become the College of Cen-
tral Florida.

When did the new name take effect?
The name became effective on May 25.

How was the name selected?
College of Central Florida was selected
following an extensive survey of students,
staff and community members. An online
survey, available Sept. 25 through Oct. 31,
2009, garnered 1,480 submissions or 580
distinct names. CFCC's Name Change
Task Force selected four to present to the
CFCC District Board of Trustees. The
board unanimously selected College of
Central Florida.

What steps were required to change the
name?
The name change required the ap-
proval of the CFCC Board of Trustees and
the State Board of Education.

Why did the college change its name?
In 2009, the Florida Legislature
adopted legislation to replace the Florida
Community College System with the
Florida College System, adopted a
process for the approval of new baccalau-
reate degrees by institutions in the sys-
tem, and established a process for how a
community college would change its


name. Because of these changes, the Dis-
trict Board of Trustees decided a name
change for the college was appropriate.

What baccalaureate degree programs
will the college offer?
The college plans to offer a Bachelor of
Applied Science in Business and Organi-
zational Management with specializations
in Agribusiness Management, Health
Care Management, Management Infor-
mation Systems or Public Safety Admin-
istration and a Bachelor of Science in
Early Childhood Education with
Prekindergarten/Primary Education Cer-
tification. The B.A.S. and B.S. degree pro-
gram offerings at CF are contingent upon
approval by the college's accrediting
agency, the Commission on Colleges of the
Southern Association of Colleges and
Schools. The programs would be offered
beginning in January 2011.

Does the new name indicate a new mis-
sion for the college?
While the name will change, the focus
of the college will remain the same. The
college will continue to serve the commu-
nity through high quality educational op-
portunities that are accessible and
affordable.

Is this the first time that the name of the
college has changed?


The college has three names in its his-
tory Central Florida Junior College was
established in 1957 when community
leaders and citizens envisioned an edu-
cational resource that would help Marion,
Citrus and Levy counties to grow and
prosper. In 1958, Hampton Junior College
opened as one of the first black, two-year
colleges in the state, and in 1966 the col-
leges merged. The name was changed to
Central Florida Community College in
1971 to reflect more accurately the char-
acter and purpose of the college serving a
larger community

Have other community colleges
changed their names?
Most institutions in the Florida College
System formerly the Florida Commu-
nity College System have considered,
are in the process, or already have
changed their names. For a list of the col-
leges, visit the Florida Department of Ed-
ucation website at http://data.fldoe.org/
workforce/contacts/default. cfm?action-
showList&ListID52.

Will the website and e-mail addresses
change?
The college will retain the wwwCFedu
Web address. The CFCC Foundation web-
site will change from www.CFCCFounda-
tion.org to www.CEedu/foundation, and
the CF Institute website will change from


www.CFCCtraining.com to CFItrain-
ing.cf.edu. E-mail addresses will remain
the same.

How does the name change have an ef-
fect on students who began their studies
when the name was Central Florida Com-
munity College?
Students who began their studies when
the name was Central Florida Community
College and expect to graduate forward
will be graduates of College of Central
Florida.

If I am a graduate of CFCC, which name
should I use on academic and employ-
ment applications?
College of Central Florida.

Is the College of Central Florida going
to be considered a university?
CFCC is proud to be a Florida college.
"A Florida college may not use the desig-
nation 'university,' according to Florida
Statute 1001.60.

Will the tuition be the same for the bac-
calaureate courses as the associate de-
gree courses?
The Board of Trustees is expected to
approve associate degree tuition for 2010-
2011 on June 23. A decision will be made
regarding tuition/fees for baccalaureate
courses in late summer or early fall.

Purvis Gray and Company, LLP of
Ocala, audited Marion County's fi-
nancial statements starting in Janu-
ary 2010 for the 2008-2009 fiscal year
and found that Marion County meets
all professional standards for how it
manages financial accounts. During
last Tuesday's board meeting, a rep-
resentative from Purvis Gray and
Company released the auditor's find-
ings.


The audit, required annually by
Florida Statutes in accordance with
Government Auditing Standards, in-
cluded evaluating governmental and
business activities as well as each
major fund. The audit also included
an analysis of the county's internal
control over financial reporting and
compliance with various laws, regu-
lations, and grant agreements.
"Our audit did not identify any sig-


nificant deficiencies required to be
reported in accordance with Gov-
ernment Audit Standards," Certified
Public Accountant Tim M. Westgate
said. "We found no financial emer-
gencies or trends indicating a deteri-
orating financial condition. Having
no reportable items is a very good
thing, especially considering the im-
pacts the current economy could
have on your financial statements."

Do You Remember?
Tune in to channel 12 for


Len Teitler's "Do You Re-
member?" featuring an in-
formative presentation by
Ingrid Crane on the art and
benefits of breathing cor-
rectly, maintaining good pos-
ture and simple exercises to
help improve physical and
mental well being. It airs fol-
lowing "FYI" at 9 a.m. and 7
p.m. from June 18 to June 25.
Carol Ann's Comer
Have you tried any of the
many games that are played
in Oak Run lately? Although
never much of a player in the
past, I have become ac-
quainted with two that I re-


ally enjoy. Every Friday at 1
p.m. there is a gathering of
Scrabble and Upwards play-
ers in the card room in the
Orchid Club. If you like word
games you should give it a
try They say word games are
great mental gymnastics to
keep your brain nimble. The
other game I like is Bunco on
Saturdays at 6:15 p.m. in the
Island Club. No use pretend-
ing there is any skill involved
in throwing dice. But it sure
is fun hoping luck will be
with you that particular
evening.
When doing my recycling


lately I noticed that some of
us are not using good recy-
cling manners. There were
plastic bags and even a plas-
tic milk jug in the bin re-
served solely for aluminum
cans. There appeared to be
non-newsprint paper in the
bin reserved solely for news-
papers. Please recycle but be
responsible and put only
items meant for each bin in
them.
Sendall itemsforthis column
to Carol Ann Wheeler at de-
mocratcarol@deccacable.com
no later than the afternoon of
the Friday before publication.
