Candidates appear before Coalition


Nine hopefuls speak to State Road 200 group


JIM CLARK
Editor


The post-primary election races
shifted into high gear Monday as
nine candidates for three offices
appeared before the State Road
200 Coalition at the group's
monthly meeting.
Candidates for County Commis-
sion, three from District 2 and four
from District 4, and two School
Board District 4 candidates pre-
sented statements and answered
questions from the audience.


Next month's meeting will fea-
ture School Board District 5, State
House District 22 and the pro-
posed amendments.
School Board
The School Board candidates
started the afternoon as Angie
Boynton and Tom Patrick, the top
two vote-getters in the Aug. 24 pri-
mary, a non-partisan race, pre-
pared for their runoff on Nov 2.
Both had appeared before the
Coalition before.
Boynton, speaking first as all
candidates were called upon in al-


phabetical order, said she was a
native of Marion County, graduate
of Forest High School, and had
been active in the community for
more than 18 years. She said as the
head of a tax and bookkeeping
business she had hired six work-
ers from the now defunct Taylor
Bean Whitaker.
She said she was interested in
increasing the graduation rate and
said "we need to work more on the
bullying problem."
She said she was interested in
behavior modification programs


Remembering 9/11
The Marion County community remembered the tragic at-
tacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on
Sept. 11, 2001, as well as recognizing the passengers
who fought back on their hijacked plane in Pennsylvania.
Above, the Field of Flags at Highland Memorial Gardens
in Northeast Ocala was decorated with hundreds of flags
covering the field at the entrance to the cemetery. An
event was conducted at the downtown square that
evening, with Lauren Henry of Vanguard High School
singing the National Anthem while Alivia Davis, 2,
solemnly listens.

to cut down on out-of-school sus-
pensions. "The goal should be to
save every child we can."
Patrick noted he has been mar-
ried 47 years, and has two sons,
one a musician in Utah and the
other a lieutenant colonel in the
Air Force. He has 35 years of ex-
perience with the school district
in areas such as maintenance,
food service and purchasing, and
spent some time in the classroom
as a substitute teacher.

OPINION


CITIZEN

E D I TO R I A L



The Tea Party

he primaries Tuesday night showed that, despite the
protests of establishment Republicans, the Tea Party
is a growing force in America.
Wins by candidates in the Delaware U.S. Senate race and
the governor's race in New York gave the Tea Party re-
newed optimism heading into the November elections.
The Democrats were openly celebrating in Delaware,
where they feel their candidate would easily succeed in the
race to replace Vice President Joe Biden.
The Democrats say the victories show the splits in the
GOP But that's what the mainstream Republicans warned
about in their statements leading up to the primaries, and
it didn't matter with the voters. It may not matter in No-
vember, either.
Our local races that are partisan are mostly limited to
County Commission and state representative. At a State
Road 200 Coalition meeting earlier this week, it was clear
that Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Whig Party
and No Party Affiliation candidates were not concerned
with national labels. Nearly all the discussion centered
around Marion County and its problems, and how to solve
them.
But statewide and nationally, it could be a different story.
So keep an eye on the Tea Party. And those who keep say-
ing with glee that Tea Party wins in primaries mean wins
for the Democrats in November might consider being a lit-
tle more restrained, and be careful what they wish for.

Remembering the POWs and MIAs


Jim
Clark

several years ago, shortly
after I went to New Smyrna
Beach to become the editor
of the newspaper there, a call
came back from the front that
there was a man to see me.
This man had a full beard and
shaggy hair, and some of the front
office people were a little bit ap-
prehensive. But I welcomed him
back to my office, and I was glad
I did.
His name was Tom Ryan, and
he was a veteran, and he briefed
me on his efforts to get a bridge
on U.S. 1 at the north end of New
Smyrna renamed. The bridge
crossed over Spruce Creek and
connected New Smyrna to Port
Orange, and was used by thou-
sands of vehicles every day
Ryan wanted it named
POW/MIA Bridge, remembering
all those who carried those des-
ignations. POW stands for pris-
oners of war, and MIA for missing
in action. There is even a dark
flag that symbolizes all those vet-
erans.

LETT ER

Candidate complaints


Ryan worked tirelessly to get
this designation. With the help of
then State Rep. Suzanne Kos-
mas, a Democrat who is now in
Congress and fighting for her po-
litical life, the bill started
through the Florida Legislature.
For my whole time there, he
kept me informed, not only of the
progress of the bill but also of
local veterans' events. We ended
up talking a lot about the issue.
Finally, Ryan got to see his
dream fulfilled as the bridge was
dedicated by state and local offi-
cials and veterans groups early
in 2008. If I had known, I would
have been there.
I wrote several stories,
columns and editorials concern-
ing this project, which was new
to me, because until I met Tom
Ryan, I never knew that
POWs/MIAs were such an issue.
The third Friday in September,
which is today, is celebrated an-
nually as National POW/MIA
Recognition Day It's one of the
few days that, nationally, the
POW/MIA flag flies on poles with
the Stars and Stripes.
It's very unlikely that there are
still living POWs held in places
such as Vietnam. Even the con-
spiracy theorists have to admit
that, with a war ending 35 years
ago, it's not probable that POWs
survive, particularly because of
the conditions under which
these prisoners had to live.
The MIA issue is different.
There are many, many families

with the unknown, wondering
what happened to their loved
ones who were declared missing
in action and whose remains, if
any, have never been found. We
should be remembering those
families and hoping that they get
the strength to go on, although
they may never know what hap-
pened.
Meanwhile, today is the day to
honor those POW/MIA veterans.
It is hoped that everyone takes a

RIGHT DOWN THE CORRIDOR


The upcoming November election: Obama's crew must go


Robert E.
Bec kne r
The world and espe-
cially the United
States have had 18
months to try and figure
out what makes Barack
Hussein Obama tick. He
appeared out of nowhere
applying for the job as the
most powerful person in
the world, the President of
the United States of Amer-
ica. He was, we believe,
passed over as far as any
in-depth background in-
vestigation. The entire
news media immediately
began a love affair with
him, due to what he was
saying, particularly how he
was going to change Amer-
ica. He was elected by a
small percentage of votes
and immediately issued an
"executive order" that
there would be no back-
ground information given
out.
Thus, began a lot of in-
vestigators of every stripe
trying to learn all about
this man. Quite frankly, not
enough voters have come
to the conclusion that
those changes he promised
were exactly what he
meant all along- his inten-
tions were to overwhelm
the system. He has known
all along what he is doing.
He's no fool, or isn't incom-
petent, some would even
today, call him brilliant, for
his picking up on a plan of
two professors at Columbia


University, Cloward and
Piven. Their plan outlined
how to socialize America
by overwhelming the sys-
tem with government
spending and entitlement
demands. It simply makes
America a Socialist/Marx-
ist state with a permanent
majority that desperately
needs government for sur-
vival and can be counted
on to always vote for bigger
government. Why shouldn't
they, they have no respon-
sibility to pay for it!
It's been said in this col-
umn from day one that all
Mr. Obama wanted was
control, so first, let's take
his Universal Health Care,
it has very little to do with
health care for anyone. Re-
member, he is great at di-
version. It had everything
to do with unionizing mil-
lions of hospital and heath
care workers. It would also
be adding 15,000 to 20,000
new IRS agents, who will
also join government em-
ployee unions. Obama
doesn't care that giving
"free" health care to 30
million Americans will add
trillions to the national
debt. He is counting on the
workers cementing voters
to the Democrats and big
government. Who but a so-
cialist revolutionary would
pass reckless spending
bills in the middle of a de-
pression?
Take cap and trade, don't
fool yourself, it isn't dead
yet just waiting for the
right moment to be voted
on, like during the upcom-
ing "lame duck" session
after the elections. Cap
and trade has nothing to do
with his deceptive reasons
for having it. In this case he
says it has to do with global
warming. It's been proven


numerous ways and many
times that it's just not true.
What it will do is allow re-
distribution of income,
more government "con-
trol" of the economy and a
criminal payoff to Obama's
biggest contributors, those
powerful Unions and GE
which owns NBC, MSNBC
and CNBC. They can be
counted on to support
everything Obama wants.
They will kick back mil-
lions to the Democratic
Party to keep them in
"power." There is even a
bonus in that all the new
taxes on Americans, bigger
cars, bigger homes and
businesses will help
"spread the wealth
around."
Let's discuss illegal im-
migration. Amnesty is a 100
percent deal already We
told you two or three weeks
ago from information that
was leaked to Congress
how the plan would incre-
mentally remove old obsta-
cles for immigration
reform, without a public
debate or approval of Con-
gress. Well, now we find
that secret memo is work-
ing already It seems the
government is calling it a
simple "program change"
and to them it's perfectly
legal. Illegals can now
break federal law as long
as it's not a DWI, family vi-
olence or sexual assault.
Being in the country ille-
gally, using stolen ID and
lying to Immigration offi-
cials is okay Doesn't mat-
ter, they are dismissing all
these cases. The govern-
ment claims they don't
have the manpower to de-
port them, or any place to
put them. They don't tell
you they didn't ask for even
one dime of increase for


S TA N G


funds in the latest budget.
So, Obama gets another 12-
30 million "new citizens" to
provide free health care,
welfare, aid to dependent
children, food stamps, edu-
cation, tax credits and
eventually Social Security
All this will help support
overwhelming the system
even further and bankrupt
America! These "citizens"
will all vote Democratic
and can be counted on to
support his government
obviously
Stimulus and bailouts,
where did all that money
go? How about Democratic
contributors, special inter-
est and lobbyists, banks
and AIG, corrupt organiza-
tions (ACORN), remember
them? Unions to save or
create jobs of government
employees, to GM and
Chrysler so those employ-
ees could continue to pay
their union dues. A big
chunk of $125 billion went
to teachers to protect their
union dues. All these pub-
lic employees will vote loy-
ally Democratic to protect
their bloated salaries and
pensions that are bank-
rupting America. The
country goes broke but
Obama, the Democratic


Party, government and
unions grow more power-
ful. Our future generations
of children face a bleak fu-
ture.
Obama is raising taxes
on small businesses, high
income earners and job
creators. This puts the en-
tire burden on the top 20
percent of taxpayers, re-
distributes the income,
punishes success and re-
wards those who did noth-
ing to deserve it, except
vote for Obama. He wants
higher taxes to dramati-
cally starve his political
opposition. Obama and his
regime have created a vast
and rapidly expanding
constituency of voters de-
pendent on big govern-
ment, a vast privileged
class of employees who
work for big government
and government dedicated
to destroying capitalism
and installing themselves
as socialist rulers in over-
whelming the system. It's
the perfect scheme de-
vised by two Columbia
University professors and
picked up and put into per-
fect play in only 18 months.
How much worse will it get
if he's allowed to continue
with his regime wor-
shipers? An election is


coming up soon and if we
are all smart we'll remove
all of Obama's regime lib-
eral progressive radicals.
The list is endless as to
what this gang of corrupt
politicians will do next.
You should tell them to
vote "NO" on The Sustain-
able Communities Bill,
U.N Gun Treaty Bill,
Treaty of the Child Bill,
Union Card check Bill, as
nothing seems to be out of
bounds to them in order for
their goal to be reached.
This final goal is destroy-
ing our American sover-
eignty and our great
country Don't wait another
minute, tell your two sena-
tors and congressmen in
your favorite way, (U.S.
mail, fax, e-mail, telephone
or even telegrams) how you
want them to vote and to
begin with, to stop all
spending or soon (Nov 2,
2010) comes the day they
will be looking for a job
themselves!

Two important elections loom


Wendy E.
Binnie


PEOPLE FIRST


It was stated before the
last election that it
made no difference who
won; there would be at least
a decade of recession be-
cause of what had been al-
lowed to happen years
before. Actually there would
have been a huge difference
if the quitter from Alaska
who made herself a million-
aire had succeeded to the
presidency had John Mc-
Cain suffered a life-threat-
ening illness or even died.
From Reagan's voodoo eco-
nomics and the prior ad-
ministration's insistence on
huge tax cuts and huge
deficits which brought the
country to its knees with a
false economy placing
everything on to the na-
tional debt for future gener-
ations to pay, this proved to
be one of the worst eco-
nomic blunders in the na-
tion's history. The
Republican majority in Con-
gress for 12 years also con-
tributed by deregulating
corporations. If Republi-
cans gain in the November
2010 election it is because
the American people are
not capable of electing the
best candidates to office, or
the better candidates are no
longer running, and deserve
to suffer the consequences
in future, along with other


problems like global warm-
ing and energy.
Republicans have also at-
tempted to create an unfet-
tered corporate America
which led/leads to corrup-
tion and greed which con-
tinued during the last
administration. Enron for
example, anyone? When
Bush adopted his hero's
failed fiscal policies, be-
tween the two of them, they
added many trillions of dol-
lars to the national debt
which will saddle future
generations with a state of
decline. There is some, but
not enough economic news
which indicates a signifi-
cant economic improve-
ment. The stimulus at least
prevented an imminent eco-
nomic collapse. Unfortu-
nately there is evidence that
if the Republicans, the party
of 'No,' win they will plan
more of the same failed
policies if they attain a ma-
jority.
There will be no recovery
as long as the U.S. has ex-
pensive military bases all
over the world and contin-
ues the lost cause in
Afghanistan and continues
to have huge budget and
trade deficits. The top tax
rate of the wealthiest citi-
zens also needs to be re-
turned to at least 70 percent
Last month the employment
rates improved way beyond
expectations. If it were not
for the census workers lay-
offs August would have been
the best employment month
since the recession began.
The major banks are all
healthy and making money,
the American car industry
has not been this healthy in
a decade and is profitable.
The peace talks between Is-
rael and Palestine are start-
ing again largely because of
this administration's com-
mitment to be an honest


broker. Our forces in Iraq
are no longer in the field
and have been reduced by
two thirds. All this despite a
relentless campaign by the
right to destabilize this
regime. And, unfortunately
it would appear their meth-
ods and message will con-
tinue to try doing just that.
Do they really want to re-
turn to the policies that got
us in this mess in the first
place? Starting two wars
while reducing taxes; creat-
ing a highly deregulated en-
vironment with minimum
oversight that allowed the
abuses to take place in the
first place and pushing for
the Medicare pharmaceuti-
cal bill for seniors that will
cost a trillion dollars. It is
important to remember that
TARP was a Bush initiative
under Paulson that rescued
Wall Street and the banks.
Obama should not have, but
supported that initiative.
The success or failure of the
stimulus bill is still being
debated. If the Republicans
should win big in the No-
vember election, it will be
interesting to see if they can
come up with initiatives to
improve our economy be-
yond just cutting taxes for
the rich, (yeah sure.) Ru-
mors are promoted to de-
stroy reputations and voting
no on all the administra-
tion's initiatives has become
old and petty. The 2012 elec-
tions are up in the air and
totally depend on whether
the economy continues to
improve or not But instead
of Obama getting the credit
should the economy indeed
improve, the praise will go
to (hopefully not) a possible
Republican congress of
2010.
As I was saying.

COALITION
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
"Things have changed a lot," he commented. He said a
program to teach the staff some behavior modification
included things to do with energy, such as turning off the
lights and limiting water and gas usage. He said the pro-
gram, started in 2005, had saved the schools $8 million.
He spoke against mandated programs and com-
mented, "we don't have to take the money" from the state
and federal agencies when these programs come up.
The two candidates clashed on the matter of suspen-
sions. Patrick said, "Let mom and dad take care of them."
He noted that by the time the students came before the
board for expulsion, they have already been through a
long process that may have included in-school suspen-
sions.
But Boynton fired back, "There's a big difference be-
tween expelled students and suspended students." She
said that a lot of the area's homeless children come into
school "with an attitude," and "we should lead the way"
in trying to help these students.
County District 2
The race for the County Commission seat being va-
cated by Jim Payton drew all three candidates to Mon-
day's meeting.
Kathy Bryant, the Republican nominee who won a
crowded primary, continued with her theme of being the
"common sense conservative" candidate. She is a life-
long resident of the county She and her husband have
four children ranging in age from 27 to 14. She has owned
and operated a small business for 17 years with her hus-
band, is a licensed real estate agent and is working a full-
time job.
"Economy has to be job 1," she said, noting that a "14
percent unemployment race is absolutely unacceptable.
We've got to diversify the job market."
She said the county is going to have to attract a "cou-
ple of big fish" to relocate here, but also noted that "small
business is the backbone of the economy"
The budget is a concern, she said. "It's not going to be
easy" She said the landfill is "running out of time" and
also said, "It's our water and we have to protect it."
Ken Nadeau, the Democratic candidate who was un-
opposed in the primary, said he had three things to touch
on. Jobs was his first item, and he said he has a detailed
job plan on his website.
He said he was "not excited about residential subdivi-
sions," and also said he was concerned about the
county's financial responsibility
He said that the race was "not about looks, talent or
rhetoric. It's about actions." He has lived in the county
for 43 years, said he bought his own house at age 25. He
spent 25 years in banking, "helping people make sound
financial decisions." For seven years he has been a fi-
nancial adviser for Met Life. He has been an elected city
commissioner and served on volunteer local boards,
"fighting developers."
His wife is a school teacher.
Doug Shearer is a candidate of the Florida Whig Party;
said he didn't want to accept $80,000 to $100,000 where he
would "owe that many favors."
He added that "local items don't apply to national pol-
itics." He said two of the things that keep businesses
away were that the city has the highest electric rate and
the county has the highest water and sewer rate.
He said the county has allowed developers to build
with their own plants, then the county has to buy it from
them. He cited Spruce Creek Preserve as an example.
Shearer said he would "hit the ground running and
help you the most."
County District 4
Incumbent Democrat Barbara Fitos is being chal-
lenged by Owen Hayden, no party affiliation; Wayne
King, Independent; and Carl Zalak, Republican.
Fitos, completing her first four-year term, said she has
"done what I have said I would do."
She said the economy was a challenge and that "job
creation has to be a top priority"
She also said the county is trying to answer the ques-
tion, "What do we want to look like?" in the future. She
spoke of the budget and noted that on Oct. 1 the county
will start working on next year's finances.

She also added that the county had to solve problems
with its infrastructure.
She is active in her church, Blessed Trinity
Hayden started by wishing everyone a "happy grand-
parents day"
He said the county needs to "develop a business-
friendly climate."
He added that the unemployment rate is "disgraceful."
He said that "We must diversify the job market, and help
government work smarter for you."
He has been in Ocala for 38 years and has been mar-
ried for 35 years. Because of not being affiliated with any
party, he said he is "not connected or concerned with an
agenda."
King said he was a Democrat for a long time, but that
both parties had asked him at one time or another to run.
He has worked with the Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission and served in the military
"We all know how desperate we are in the country
today We have to build our economy with something be-
sides building houses."
He said, as did most of the candidates, that this would
be a full-time job. "I'll do what I say I'll do and you'll
know why"
Zalak said he believed in less government, lower taxes,
family values and was 100 percent pro life. He is active
with First Baptist Church. He was a football player at the
University of South Florida.
The small business owners said he is "tired of looking
at neighbors and friends who don't have jobs.
"Our morale has taken a hit."
He said he has a "100-day plan to end the war on busi-
ness" in the county
He showed a report that his business had to file with
the county, where it asked for many details. "I feel that's
an intrusion of government at its best."
He wants county employees cross-trained so that when
someone looks for help they can get it without being re-
ferred elsewhere. He wants to use Baseline Landfill to
its fullest and wants limits on impact fees.
The next coalition meeting will be on Oct. 11.


Deputy hurt as car strikes horse


A Marion County deputy
was seriously injured early
Wednesday when his patrol
car struck a horse.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Deputy
Matthew Bowers was driv-
ing south on 80th Avenue,
near the intersection of
Southwest 38th Street, in
emergency mode at about
1:30 a.m.
A dark colored horse was
standing in the roadway,
and Bowers was unable to
see him as he traveled
south. The front right of he
patrol vehicle struck the
horse.
Following impact, the
horse landed on the south-
bound shoulder. The patrol
car rotated clockwise and
stopped on the shoulder.


According to the report,
Bowers sustained "some-
what serious" injuries and
was taken to Munroe Re-
gional Medical Center.
The horse was fatally in-
jured. The road was closed
for about one hour.

Featuring another long-married couple


J an
-" T J*a"b eLi iberio

SPRUCE CREEK


W ell, today is
POW/MIA Recog-
nition Day Honor
the veterans and fly your
flag. We must take time to
remember these wonder-
ful people and the service
they gave to our country
Feature of the week
The feature this week is
another couple from SCN
that are married over 50
years. They are Jean and
Bob Opferkuch. Bob was
born in New York City in
Manhattan. He had five sis-
ters and four brothers. He
attended elementary
school PS148 in Jackson
Heights, N.Y. and then
went to Newtown high
school and graduated in
1945 and enlisted in the
Navy later that year. He
went to boot camp in Bain-
bridge, Maryland, to basic
engineering school. He
served on the USS Hunt-
ington CO-107 and got an
honorable discharge in
1949 as a machinist mate
3rd class.
Bob met Jean Wenner in
May 1951. Jean was born in

SCN has many clubs for

is true that some are not as
full as they used to be, but
that is due to some of the

moving away so hopefully
the new people will join
some of these clubs and
they will be built up again.


We have Bunco, Bingo,

YOUR DENTAL
HEALTH


by M. E Hampton D.S.
INLAYS AND ONLAYS
Among the cosmetic
dentistry procedures that
provide restorative benefits are
inlays and onlays made from
porcelain or composite
materials. Dental inlays are used
to treat teeth with decay within
their indented top surfaces.
Onlays are used to treat decay
or damage that extends to one or
more tooth cusps. Both
restorations ... ,11ll, require two
appointments. One involves
taking an impression and
placement of a temporary inlay
or only in or over the tooth.
Once the inlay or only comes
back from the lab, where the
impression was used to create
the restoration, it is cemented in
place. Not only do inlays and
onlays require less tooth
reduction than a crown, they are
durable enough to last up to
three decades.
Porcelain inlays/onlays can
successfully achieve both
esthetic and functional results in
restoring discolored or metal
posterior teeth. Everybody
loves a dazzling smile, and
there are a variety of procedures
available to help you improve
the look of yours. Our goal at
the office of MARK E.
HAMPTON, DD.S., is to
preserve your smile throughout
a lifetime. We welcome you to
up-to-date dentistry and to an
incomparable level of service in
your search for a beautiful
smile. Call 352.489.5071 to
schedule a dental appointment.
Our office is located at 11902
Illinois Street.
We're "Dedicated to
Excellent Dentistry."
P.S. Inlays and onlays can
also be used to replace old or
damaged fillings with tooth-
colored materials that will
neither contract nor expand due
to changes in temperature.

SGetting a kick out of some football stories


Wy Dick
SFrank
PUN

On this day in 1920 the
American Profes-
sional Football Asso-
ciation, a precursor of the
NFL, was formed in Canton,
Ohio. This year, professional
football just started its regu-
lar season and college foot-
ball is looking at its third
week. It's time for us to get a
kick out of some gridiron sto-
ries.
Really offensive
Hearing that cold weather
in Scandinavian countries
produced hulks of men, a
coach recruited some for his


university. With the offer of
an education he was able to
recruit enough players for
the offensive line. These
players were so massive and
so effective that the quarter-
back had plenty of time to
pass the ball. No matter how
hard the defenders tried to
get to the quarterback, they
could never cross the
Finnish line.
Arow
One of the Tampa Bay foot-
ball players who had sculled
in college organized a rowing
team composed of his most
muscular teammates. They
were so fast they could tow
several water skiers. In the
off-season they appeared at
Cypress Gardens where their
act was billed as skiers and
row Bucs.
She's game
A college senior took his
girlfriend to a football game.
A substitute was put into the
game, and as he was running


onto the field to take his po-
sition, the boy said to his girl-
friend, "Take a good look at
that fellow. I expect him to be
our best man next year."
His girlfriend snuggled
closer to him and said,
"That's the strangest way I
ever heard of for a fellow to
propose to a girl. Regardless
of how you said it, I accept!"
Short gains
Football is often played on
muddy fields. The players
would never get clean if
weren't for the scrub teams.
The violin-playing football
player ended up playing on
the first string.
An unnamed coach was al-
ways a step ahead of all op-
posing coaches. He had a
three-platoon system one
for offense, one for defense,
and one to go to classes.
A football and a baseball
went into a bar. The football
said, "You're round!"
When the FSU library


burned to the ground all five
books in the library were
completely destroyed and
the football team was really
upset; they hadn't colored in
two of them yet.
The football coach sent in
the second string so he could
tie up the game.
The coach, speaking about
one of his players, said, "He
doesn't know the meaning of
the word 'fear'. In fact, I've
seen his grades, and there
are a lot of words he doesn't
know the meaning of."
It was reported that the
coach will only be dressing
20 players for the next game.
The rest of the players will
have to dress themselves.
He wore number 53. Un-
fortunately, that was also his
combined SAT score.
The coach says his favorite
play is the one where one of
his players pitches the ball
back to the official after he
has scored a touchdown.


Naked truth
The good news about the
rookie place kicker was that
he could hit a field goal from
his own thirty-yard line. The
bad news was that he could
only do it in the nude, which
limited his appearances to
exhibition games.
Tied and tired
The college football game
was tied at the end of regula-
tion. The opposition scored a
field goal on their first pos-
session to go ahead. The
home team put the ball in-
side the 10 and the dim-wit-
ted quarterback called
time-out to find out what to
do. At the sideline he said, "I
think we have a first down;
how many do we have? I
want to throw into the end
zone but will kick a field goal
to tie if we haven't scored by
the last down. Is that cor-
rect?" The coach quickly an-
swered the quarterback's
two questions in a way he


could understand. He said,
"Four, give us our three
passes."
What?
The football coach, de-
jected because his team was
losing, looked down at his
bench of available substi-
tutes and yelled, "All right
Jones, go in there and get fe-
rocious!"
Jones jumped to his feet,
"Sure coach," he cried, slam-
ming on his headgear.
"What's his number?'
Loud fans
It's well known that FSU
has a good rooting section at
their home games because
they give the fans all they
want to drink. This upset UF
supporters so much that they
lodged a complaint and
wanted to know what FSU
was giving these boisterous
fans. The answer came back,
"root beer of course."
Dick and his wife Jane live
in Oak Run.

Adoption News: You can turn sad story into happy one


SPCA

is ^


Vale
We're
month
news
story that we
you will turn


looking for a grateful pup
that will follow you
around and be devoted to
you, you can ask for no
one better than little
Valentia. Right now, the
vet can't tell what else she
is mixed with, but she is
mostly black lab. How
Maria about being a Good
D e v i n e Samaritan yourself and
giving Kristine a call to in-
quire about Valentia. You
can call her at 732-991-
2716 or email her at
YFlipper71@aol.com.
This month we are con-
tinuing our partnership
with Marion County Ani-
mal Services, whereby we
highlight two of their dogs
to help them find their
forever homes as soon as
possible. Our first dog is
an older puppy named
Jack. This boy is a nine
month old beagle/Cata-
houla mix. Not much is
known of Jack's back-
ground, or the road that
ntia led him to Animal Serv-
ices. What is known is that
starting this Jack is a very active and
th's adoption playful boy who is looking
with a sad for a family with a big play
hope one of area so he can run around
into a happy and just be himself, per-


one. A few weeks ago a
Good Samaritan found
two teeny puppies
dumped in the middle of a
busy road in northwest
Ocala. Instead of driving
by and leaving them to
their perilous fate, she
scooped them up, brought
them home, then brought
them in for veterinary
care. One lucky pup has
already been adopted, but
her sister, given the beau-
tiful name Valentia, still
needs her forever home. If
this wonderful person
could keep her, she would,
but with a few dogs of her
own already, that's impos-
sible. That's why we're
counting on a local family,
couple, or individual to
come to Valentia's rescue.
As you can see from her
adorable picture, this pre-
cious pup is a black lab
mix and by the time you
read this will be about 10
weeks old and seven little
bitty pounds. She will be a
perfect companion for any
type of family because
she's a super friendly girl
with people, other dogs,
and cats. She is so smart
that she already is crate
trained, and is learning to
potty outside now that
she's had her first shots.
She sleeps through the
night in her crate with her
trusty stuffed animal by
her side. She's an early to
bed, early to rise kind of
girl, but she won't get you
up too early no 4 a.m.
excursions for her, 7 a.m.
will do nicely. Only a won-
derful dog can start out so
sad in life but turn into a
loving, playful bundle of
joy. Her new favorite
game that she just learned
is tug of war-- she carries
around a too big braided
rope toy in her little
mouth so that she's always
at the ready for fun and
games. She likes big toys
that are almost as big as
she is. Then when she's
tuckered out from all that
activity, she'll fall asleep
in your arms. If you're


haps running with the
kids or grandkids if you
have any. Jack is a very af-
fectionate pooch who gets


attached to people quickly
- he doesn't have an aloof
or standoffish bone in his
body. If you would like to
bring a puppy into your
life, but don't want the
time consuming responsi-
bility of a super young
pup, then the good na-
tured Jack may be right up
your alley. When you call
Animal Services about
Jack, you can tell them his
ID number, which is
A007236.
Perhaps you're not look-
ing for a puppy at all, then
an adult dog who knows
his manners and has been
around a block or two will
be a better fit for you or
your family. Then look no
further than Pumpkin. As
pictured here, she is just
asking for you to take her


Pumpkin


home with you. She has
had enough of the shelter
life. Pumpkin is a 4-year-
old German shepherd
mix. She has a pretty tan
coat with white spots on
her back, so you'll always
recognize her when at the
dog park amid all the
basic tan coats. To go with
her adult status, Pumpkin
is house trained, walks
well on a leash and loves
to go for car rides. She
gets along well with chil-
dren, cats and other dogs,
so she is ideal for any type
of family that wants a lov-
ing companion. She was
unfortunately surren-
dered to Animal Services
because a landlord would
not allow Pumpkin in his
apartment. If you have no
landlord issues of your
own, or own your home,
Pumpkin can live with you
forever happily ever after.
To inquire about Pump-
kin, please call Marion
County Animal Services at
352-671-8700. Pumpkin's
animal ID number is
A017754, which will help
the staff identify her when
you call.
Both Jack and Pumpkin
are available for an adop-
tion fee of $40. This fee in-
cludes their spay/neuter
surgeries, county licenses,
vaccinations and mi-


crochips. Instead of call-
ing, you can also stop by
the Center at 5701 S.E.
66th St. The Animal Cen-
ter is also looking for peo-
ple to volunteer their
services at the shelter, es-
pecially to take out and so-
cialize the dogs. Please
give them a call if this is
something you would like
to do, a way of giving back
to the community.
Well, here you have
three wonderful dogs that
need you to make a differ-
ence in their lives. Each is
at a different stage of life;
surely one of them is at
the right one for you.
SPCA News
The SPCA is excited
that September is here,
because we start our new
meetings this month.
Please come and join us
on Thursday, Sept. 16, at 1
p. m. at the Arbor Club
Ballroom at On Top of the
World Communities.
Please call for directions
if you need them at 352-
362-0985. We're easy to
find. This should be an in-
teresting meeting since
we will have a special
guest speaker from the
Oak Run Dog Club, who
will share with us their
mission and activities in
animal welfare. The SPCA


is also asking anyone in-
terested in becoming an
animal foster to give us a
call. We are desperately in
need of a few people will-
ing to care for the animals
that are surrendered to
us. Right now, we don't
have enough people, so
we cannot take any ani-
mals in. We have been re-
ferring them to other
rescue organizations in-
stead. Please help us so
that we can do more for
our community.
If you need our help or
would like to join the
SPCA or our foster pro-
gram, please call us at 352-
362-0985 to find out more.
Until next month re-
member: "Pets are not our
whole lives, but they make
our lives whole."

Warning of the danger of wishes granted


SIGN OF THE CROSS
By Anne Emery


Pat
Wellington


BOOK


While Googling for a
book with some
local color about
one of our ports of call in
an upcoming cruise, I hit
the jackpot with Anne
Emery's "Sign of the
Cross," a mystery set in
Halifax, Nova Scotia, and
steeped in twists and turns
and a plethora of unforget-
table characters.
Here in an excerpt is
hard-drinking lawyer
Monty Collins warning us


about the danger of wishes
granted: "Soon, although I
didn't know it yet, I would
be involved in a case I
would not be able to shake
when I left the building. Or
even when I closed my
eyes to sleep. For the first
time in my career I would
be flying blind, unable to
fathom what was behind
the brutal murder of a
young woman whose body
had been carved with a re-
ligious sign and dumped
beneath a bridge. And the
client? My mother had a
saying: 'Be careful what
you wish for.' For years -
decades I had been long-
ing for a client above the
poor, uneducated, hope-
less, heedless, unstable in-
dividuals I usually
presented. A client more
like more like me. Well, I
was about to have one. Be
careful what you wish for."
Irish priest Father Bren-
nan Burke is handsome,
articulate, and, like
Collins, hard-drinking, but
he is also arrogant and


tight-lipped. In short, he's a
fascinating but difficult
challenge for the lawyer,
not the least of which is
that he's the only suspect
linked to two murdered
women. And although the
pair will become friends,
they will circle each other
warily until the end of the
novel.
Emery keeps her read-
ers off balance and in-
creasingly engaged as the
puzzle deepens. Who else
at St Bernadette's could be
the killer? An elderly
priest with a taste for vio-
lent crime stories? A com-
petitive nun with a sharp
tongue? A rectory secre-
tary with an obvious crush
on Father Burke? A dys-
functional young man who
once dated one of the vic-
tims?
Canadian author Anne
Emery, a lawyer herself,
uses her knowledge of
Catholicism and court pro-
ceedings to great advan-
tage. She maintains a high
level of tension throughout


and creates even unpleas-
ant characters with skill.
For instance, caustic ex-
wife Maura Collins puts
her anger aside to anchor
and support Monty in his
quest for the truth.
The author won a first
novel award for "Sign," a
richly deserved honor Best
of all, she makes Halifax
seem familiar to her read-
ers. Recommended.
Pat Wellington is a re-
tired English professor,
freelance writer, and fac-
ulty member of On Top of
the World's Master the Pos-
sibilities, who shares her
passion for books with oth-
ers.

Take Stock in Children gets federal grant


Federal funding oppor-
tunity to provide advanced
education for more at-risk
youth in Florida
Education has become a
top priority in Florida with
a wave of federal funding
that will make its way to
Take Stock in Children, a
statewide non-profit organ-
ization with a 15 year his-
tory of working in
partnership with over 800
public schools to help low-
income and at-risk
teenagers break the cycle
of poverty by providing a
post-secondary education.
The organization will re-
ceive a $5 million grant
from the U.S. Department
of Education to expand its
solid foundation of provid-
ing scholarships, mentors
and hope for children
throughout Broward, Mon-
roe and Highlands coun-
ties.
Take Stock in Children is
one of 49 innovative pro-
grams recently selected
out of 1,698 applicants na-
tionwide seeking federal
education grants. School
districts, universities and
nonprofit organizations
from across the country at-
tempted to earn a share of
the $650 million in stimu-
lus funds. The money will
come from a U.S. Depart-
ment of Education pro-
gram known as Investing in
Innovation (i3).
With the $5 million grant,
Take Stock in Children
plans to launch its
FLIGHT program (Facili-
tating Long-Term Improve-
ments in Graduation and
Higher Education for To-
morrow). FLIGHT is de-
signed to improve
academic and behavioral


student outcomes, increase
post-secondary matricula-
tion and reduce college re-
mediation. The program
also aims to enhance uti-
lization of student data to
identify high-need stu-
dents and implement
timely interventions to in-
crease their academic suc-
cess.
The Investing in Innova-
tion federal program is de-
signed to serve as a catalyst
for education advance-
ment by providing small,
seed-money grants to
promising new ideas and
to provide more funding to
programs such as Take
Stock in Children with a
successful track record.
Take Stock in Children re-
ceived the grant because of
its proven ability to help
close the achievement gap
and increase high school
and college graduation
rates.
"This national recogni-
tion is a tremendous mile-
stone in the history of this
organization and is exactly
what we need to signifi-
cantly expand our program
as we break the cycle of
poverty through higher ed-
ucation," said Richard
Berkowitz, Board Chair of
Take Stock in Children.
"With this grant, we intend
to improve college and
high school graduation
rates even further, while
improving overall student
achievement."
Students enrolled with
Take Stock in Children are
identified in middle and
high school, and then sign
a contract pledging to re-
main drug and crime free,
as well as maintain a mini-
mum grade point average


of 2.0 or greater. All stu-
dents that fulfill these obli-
gations and successfully
complete the Take Stock in
Children program receive
full scholarships to a state
college or university upon
graduation. The organiza-
tion is the largest non-
profit purchaser of Florida
Prepaid Foundation Schol-
arships.
An emphasis on student
accountability and specific
measurable outcomes dis-
tinguishes Take Stock in
Children from any other
statewide mentoring pro-
gram. Grade point aver-
ages increase with the
length of time a student
spends in the program,
proving that Take Stock in
Children's method works.
Clearly addressing the
high school drop-out crisis


and college attainment,
Take Stock in Children
continues to report an un-
paralleled high school
graduation rate of 92 per-
cent, with 81 percent en-
rolling in college. Those
numbers are 61 percent
higher and 189 percent
higher (respectively) than
the Florida state averages
for at-risk students. Take
Stock in Children currently
serves nearly 8,000 low-in-
come and minority stu-
dents in grades 6-12
annually throughout 60
counties in Florida.
Berkowitz added, "With-
out a doubt, this grant will
allow Take Stock in Chil-
dren to expand greatly and
we are confident that it
will also help us to attract
more supporters who
share our belief in the


power of education. Fulfill-
ing the vision of President
Barack Obama and U.S.
Secretary of Education
Arne Duncan, we stand
committed to exposing
more students to our inno-
vative model of education
achievement as we know it
will result in better com-
munities and a better
America."

efiting from Take Stock in
Children or becoming a
valued mentor or sup-
porter, please call 888-322-
4673 or visit
www. takestockinchil-
dren.org.
Take Stock in Children is
a 501 (3) non-profit organ-
ization with a solid 15 year
history of providing men-
tors, educational scholar-
ships and hope for


Florida's low-income and
at-risk youth. The organi-
zation has provided educa-
tional support and college
scholarships for over
16,000 children in partner-
ship with more than 800
public schools throughout
60 counties in Florida. It is
the only scholarship men-
toring program with the
goal of breaking the cycle
of poverty through educa-
tion to attain a high school
graduation rate of 92 per-
cent in Florida. Take Stock
in Children has grown to
be the largest non-profit
purchaser of Florida Pre-
paid Foundation Scholar-
ships. To learn more about

Public forum scheduled on 'civility'


The Interfaith Alliance
(TIA) of Marion County
announces that the first
public forum of its fall
season will address "Civil-
ity in Public Life" when
the Rev Dr. Lorenzo Ed-
wards, pastor of the his-
toric Mount Moriah
Missionary Baptist
Church in Ocala hosts
the group at 7 p.m. on
Tuesday, Sept. 21.
"Civility is a corner-
stone of our society, a
building block of our so-
cial contract, which is
being heavily eroded as
words spewed by some
preachers, politicians,
newscasters and the gen-
eral public are becoming
increasing ugly and divi-
sive," according to Dr.
Scott Olsen, chairman of
the local chapter. "We
want to lessen the deci-


bels of confrontation in
order to unite diverse
voices and challenge ex-
tremism. We don't want to
see in Ocala the flash-
points of intolerance and
distrust which are occur-
ring elsewhere." The na-
tional organization which
is composed of more than
75 faith groups works to
protect the sanctity of re-
ligion and the integrity of
government.
The Rev Dale Stewart,
founder of the local chap-
ter who will moderate the
event which takes place
on International Day of
Peace, agrees. Stating that
"we must stop demonizing
those who disagree with
us if we truly follow the
precepts of our faiths," he
says that all religions ulti-
mately boil down to the
golden rule: "Do unto oth-


ers as you would have
them do to you."
Panelists will include
Dennis Baxley, former ex-
ecutive director of the
Florida Christian Coali-
tion; County Commis-
sioner Barbara Fitos, TIA
board member and minis-
ter of the Eucharist at
Blessed Trinity parish;
Rev Andy Gans, pastor of
Fort King Presbyterian
Church; and Charles Van
Zant, doctor of divinity
and member of the
Florida State House.
Members of the public
are invited. The church is
at 55 S.W Third Ave. in
downtown Ocala. For fur-
ther information, please e-

river that flows out from
the garden forming four
branches: The Tigris, Eu-
phrates, Gidhon and the
Pishon. (Gen.2: 10-14) In a
previous passage, we also
learn about a spring that
would rise up from the
ground to nourish the land
J u d i since God had not yet cre-
S i e g a I ated rain. (Gen. 2:6) Later
on there would be an over
abundance of water, a
flood, which would destroy
all humankind due to the
wickedness of the people.
Only Noah, his family and
idered the animals that Noah brings

aphors and wished to enter the Tem-
res promi- ple grounds needed to im-
ions. There merse in a special ritual
nples of this pool called a mikveh.
aith starting Today, the ritual pool is
of Genesis. also used but for different
n about the purposes.
en and the As with many of the rit-


ual items used in Judaism,
the mikveh has to meet
specific specifications ac-
cording to Jewish law. The
bath must be built into the
ground or in the structure
of the building. It must
hold a minimum of 200 gal-
lons of water. There are
seven steps, corresponding
to the days of creation
leading down to the water.
The depth of the water
should be so that when an
average adult is standing,
the water should reach 11
inches above the waist so
that one does not have to
go through backbreaking
contortions in order to im-
merse in the pool. The
water should come from a
natural source such as a
spring or rainwater but
other water may be added
as needed to supplement
the pool. While in use, the
water must be stationary
and not flow but can be
chlorinated for sanitary
purposes. When no mikveh
is available, bathing in the
ocean is allowed.
The person immersing
in the mikveh takes a
shower before entering the
mikveh because the pur-
pose of the mikveh is a


spiritual one, not for
bathing for hygienic pur-
poses. All nail polish, oint-
ments, band-aids, rings,
cosmetics are removed,
hair is brushed and nails
on toes and hands are
pared. A male or female at-
tendant observes the im-
mersion, depending on the
gender of the person at-
tending the mikveh, and
proper blessings are said.
The body is totally im-
mersed with not even a
strand of hair floating on
the surface.
The concept of bathing
in water for spiritual pu-
rity has long been a tradi-
tion in Judaism. According
to some rabbis, the idea
started when the Israelites
walked into the Red Sea in
a leap of faith. Here they
were transformed from a
group of slaves into a free
nation whose mission was
to serve God. This idea of
using a pool or body of
water to symbolize a
change of status in the life
of a person is a powerful
image for Jews.
The mikveh, or ritual
bath, is mainly used today
for lifecycle changes.
Among Orthodox Jews, it is


a mitzvah or command-
ment that requires a spe-
cial blessing to be recited
before immersion. Ortho-
dox women visit the
mikveh seven days after
their menstrual period in
order to resume marital
relations with their hus-
bands and brides immerse
before their weddings in
order to be spiritually
pure.
Men also visit the
mikveh. Many go before
Shabbat (the Sabbath) or
before holidays. For mod-
esty sake, there are sepa-
rate times for men and
women.
Perhaps the most no-
table use of the mikveh is
for the new convert of Ju-
daism. After a proscribed
routine of study and atten-
dance at synagogue, the
potential convert appears
before a Beth Din (court of
Jewish law) and professes
his or her desire to join the
Jewish people and then, in
a final act before becoming
a Jew, immerses into a
mikveh, symbolizing new
life as a Jew.
In light of modern times,
the uses for the mikveh
have taken on new mean-


ings especially among the
more liberal forms of Ju-
daism. Women's groups, in
particular, have found new
ways of making the mikveh
relevant in the lives of
modern women. Today
there are ceremonies for
menopause, becoming
grandparents, being called
to the Torah for the first
time, finishing chemo, be-
fore and after surgery, and
any time a person experi-
ences a life-changing
event. They use the
mikveh to celebrate joy or
to heal after times of sor-
row. The mayim hayim, or
living waters of a mikveh,
mimic the waters that pre-
cede birth so symbolically
the person experiences a
"new life" as she emerges
from the mikveh to em-
brace the new stage in her
life.
Locally, there are mik-
vaot (plural of mikveh) in
Gainesville and Orlando
affording the Jews of this
area the opportunity to
participate in an ancient
Jewish rite.
Judi is a former teacher
and Jewish educator She
lives in Sun Valley with her
husband, Phil.

Loco pastor burns his hand in loud protest


Rev.
James L.
Snyder


OUT To


very now and then,
a thought enters my
mind. Once inside
my mind, it endures a
lonely existence and rat-
tles around long enough to
morph into something
quite different when it
comes out than what went
in.
I am not quite sure
when this thought entered
my mind, but when it
came out of my mind it in-
duced me to surprise my
wife with a barbecue sup-
per. When this thought
first raised its head, I was
pleasantly surprised that
I, on my very own, could
come up with such a good


idea.
The key to this surprise
barbecue supper was not
letting my wife know
about it. I must admit that
I am not very successful
when it comes to covert
operations. I do not think
my wife is psychic, but she
seems to know what I am
going to do before I actu-
ally do it. This has helped
me out of many embar-
rassing situations.
The more I thought
about this, the more the
idea pleased me. My wife
has been working hard
lately and I thought she
about needed a nice little
surprise from Yours Truly.
I was the man for the job.
I had to plan this opera-
tion down to the last sec-
ond. I knew at the outset
this would be difficult, but
the payoff would be well
worth it.
I knew my wife was
going to be out of town for
most of the day, which
gave me plenty of time to
put my plan into action.
The first thing on my
agenda was to go to the
grocery store and buy all
the necessary ingredients


for my barbecue. This was
going to be a barbecue to
end all barbecues. I love it
when a plan comes to-
gether.
I bought some wonder-
ful looking steaks, sweet
potatoes for roasting (my
wife loves sweet potatoes),
and equal portions of po-
tato salad and coleslaw.
"Having a barbecue?"
the cashier said with a
smile that almost touched
behind her head.
"Yea, I am surprising my
wife with a barbecue sup-
per"
"You have any charcoal
for your grill?"
Whoops, that was not on
my list, but I am sure glad
she mentioned it. I went
back, got a bag of charcoal
and brought it up to the
cashier. As she was ring-
ing it up she said, "Do you
have enough lighter fluid
to get all of the charcoal
burning?"
Whoops, that was not on
my list either. I ran back
and got a can of lighter
fluid for the charcoal.
Everything seemed to
be in order, I paid the
cashier and as I headed


for the door, I was
whistling a familiar tune.
It was a long time since I
had done anything like
this, and I was rather
proud of myself for think-
ing it up all by myself. It
only goes to show what a
person can do when they
think about something.
It took some doing, but I
finally extracted the bar-
becue grill from the back
corner of the garage and
set it up on the back patio.
The steaks are really
going to be good tonight, I
thought to myself. Is my
wife ever going to be sur-
prised.
Another key to this
whole surprise element
was time. I wanted to time
it so that when my wife
came through the door
she would smell the bar-
becue burning. The first
thing I needed to do was
get the barbecue grill
working in fine order I as-
sembled what I consider
the proper amount of
charcoal on the grill, set
the bag down and picked
up the can of lighter fluid.
While I was working, I
begin to muse within my-


self and thought that bar-
becue grilling comes nat-
ural to a man. Many things
we may not be able to do,
but when it comes to a
barbecue grill, a man is a
man. I splashed a little
lighter fluid on the char-
coal and commenced to
strike a match. Nothing.
I struck another match
and had the same results.
With a little bit of panic I
looked at my watch and
knew that my wife would
be coming home soon. I
struck another match and
still the charcoal did not
light. I sprinkled a little
more lighter fluid on the
charcoal and struck an-
other match. Nothing.
I was beginning to run
out of time. I took the
lighter fluid and emptied
the entire can on my char-
coal and as I did it, I heard
my wife's car come into
the driveway. I knew I had
to fly into action now.
I struck the match and
touched it to the charcoal
and the last thing I re-
member was a flash of
light and a terrible ex-
ploding noise in my ears.

Then I felt pain. Pain in
my right hand.
I looked at my right
hand and saw that it was
aflame and burning rather
nicely. Then my wife came
through the back door
onto the patio just in time
to see me dance and yell
like a banshee.
The charcoal in the grill
was all ablaze and my
right hand burning out-of-
control my wife had the
audacity to look at me and
say, "Whatcha you doing?"
As we were eating our
potato salad and coleslaw,
I thought of a Bible verse.
"Wherefore let him that
thinketh he standeth take
heed lest he fall." (1
Corinthians 10:12 KJV).
My problem is I think
too much.

happiness. Unfortunately,
most times over our lives
when there is a change it is
the opposite. Especially in
our later years, the change
can be feelings of discom-
fort, fear, or pain.
Many of the changes are
unavoidable. It's not advis-
able to resist them but it


just may be an opportunity
to grow. We just have to
make it work in our favor to
somehow benefit from it.
Dwelling on what might
have been, is not the an-
swer. Adapting to your life
as it is now with optimism
and flexibility should be
the way to go. Maybe in the
short term, this isn't possi-
ble. Long term, this has to
be the way to go otherwise
retirement can go down the
drain.

/ was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have to restore the Gulf communities
for the shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.
Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach

No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the beginning of our
work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf and that includes
keeping you informed.

Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet. We have
been working with impacted communities since day one.

Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is to listen to
people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have 19 community centers
and teams in four states, listening and helping.

Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners,
helping to make them whole.

More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have already gone to people
affected by the spill. We have committed a $20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate
claims, including lost incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.

BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism recover and bring
people back to the Gulf beaches.

Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams will remain in
place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.

And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific experts on the
impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.

Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support over 10,000 jobs in
the region and people here are our neighbors. We know we haven't always been perfect,
but we will be here until the oil is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal.
We will do everything we can to make this right.
