Flight for World War II

vets to D.C. to be Oct. 28


MICHEL NORTHSEA
Staff Writer


Lonth at World War II Veteran Wayne
rywood, Parkhurst has a scrapbook full of
he public photographs, newspaper clippings
and magazine articles pertaining
ited to to his trip with last year's Honor
and lis- Flight.
"I so much appreciated the trip
that I have been helping promote
Page 2 the flight to others," he said.
Parkhurst has plenty to talk
about.
The next Honor Flight of World
.....16 War II veterans from Marion
........2 County to see their World War II
monument in Washington D.C. is
.....21 Oct. 28.
........2 There will be room for 105 vet-
1.....2 erans on the one-day trip.
8 The first priority is taking the 30
..8. veterans who were not able to go
.....14 on last year's trip. Then the next
.....22 priority will be given with those
19 who have personal sponsors, said
Mike Emig, one of the volunteers
.....13 promoting and organizing the mis-
sion.


Along with the veterans will be
a host of volunteers including
three doctors, 10 emergency med-
ical technicians and some security
people.
Each flight cost upward of
$75,000 and includes chartering a
plane, buses for transportation in
Washington D.C. and the meals.
Last week, West Port High
School's Army JROTC program
presented $2,000 to organizers of
the county's Honor Flight.
In presenting the check, Cadet
Lt. Daniel Corral encouraged
other organizations to honor vet-
erans by supporting the Honor
Flight program.
"To know that we at West Port
High School can do our small part
to honor our heroes and kick off
public awareness of excellence in
action by doing the right thing,
which might encourage others to
say "thank you" in a similar fash-
ion to our veterans," he said.
Several cadets from the pro-

Impact


fee ban


extended

In a unanimous decision, the
Marion County Board of County
Commissioners voted Tuesday to
extend the transportation impact
fee suspension through June 2011.
The idea: continue lifting the
transportation impact fees to en-
courage economic development
and job creation.
Between Jan. 1 and Aug. 31,
2010, staff reported that a total of
437 residential and non-residen-
tial permits were pulled in unin-
corporated Marion County
(excluding the cities of Ocala,
Belleview and Dunnellon). This
could generate as much as $2.7
million in impact fee relief. Dur-
ing the same time period in 2009,
305 permits were pulled in unin-
corporated Marion County.
To offset losses to the Trans-
portation Impact Fee fund, which
pays for the construction of new
roads or expansion of existing
roads, commissioners chose to use
a portion of the remaining one-
cent local option sales tax pro-
- ceeds. The remaining balance of
the one-cent local option sales tax
proceeds is about $650,000 (of the
$1.7 million) according to Growth
Management officials.
Tuesday's decision marks the
board's third vote on this topic. On
Jan. 5, in a 3-2 vote, with Commis-
sion Chair Barbara Fitos and
Commissioner Jim Payton dissent-
ing, the majority of commissioners
suspended all transportation im-
pact fees effective Jan. 1, 2010 -
March 31, 2010. Then on April 6,,
in a unanimous decision, commis-
sioners voted to extend the sus-
pension through the end of 2010.

OPINION


CITIZEN

E D I TO R I A L


Reduce their risk
Perhaps our most precious resource in our lifetime is our
children and grandchildren. Many of you undoubtedly
transport younger children from place to place, and na-
tionally, officials worry that not all grandparents are up to speed
on what's required for child safety.
This week is National Child Passenger Safety Week, and you
should learn all you can do to keep your most precious cargo
safe.
In 2008, the last year for which statistics are available, about
four children ages 14 or younger were killed in motor vehicle
crashes every day, and many more were injured. But parents
and caregivers can make a lifesaving difference.
Whenever you're on the road, make sure your child passen-
gers are buckled into appropriate safety seats. The safest place
for children of any age to ride is properly restrained in the back
seat. Data show that:
In 2008, restraint use saved the lives of 244 children ages 4
and younger. Child safety seats reduce the risk of death in car
crashes by 71 percent for infants and 54 percent for toddlers
ages 1 to 4.
For children ages 4 to 7, booster seats reduce injury risk by 59
percent compared to safety belts alone.
Children ages 12 and younger should always be buckled up
and seated in the rear seat of vehicles. Infants in rear-facing car
seats should never ride in the front seat of vehicles with airbags.
In an effort to raise parents' awareness about the leading
causes of child injury in the United States and how they can be
prevented, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
launched the "Protect the Ones You Love" initiative. Parents
can play a life-saving role in protecting children from injuries.
Follow these guidelines for child passenger safety. If you do,
you'll be within Florida law.
Until Age 1/20 Lbs. For the best possible protection keep
infants in the back seat, in rear-facing child safety seats, as long
as possible up to the height or weight limit of their particular
seat. At a minimum, keep infants rear-facing until at least age 1
year and at least 20 pounds.
Until Age 4/40 Lbs. When children outgrow their rear-fac-
ing seats (at least age 1 year and at least 20 pounds) they should
ride in forward-facing child safety seats, in the back seat, until
they reach the upper weight or height limit of the particular
seat (usually around age 4 and 40 pounds).
Until Age 8 Or 4'9" Tall Once children outgrow their for-
ward-facing seats (usually around age 4 and 40 pounds), they
should ride in booster seats, in the back seat, until the vehicle
seat belts fit properly Seat belts fit properly when the lap belt
lays across the upper thighs and the shoulder belt fits across
the chest (usually at age 8 or when the children are 4'9" tall).
After Age 8 Or 4'9" Tall When children outgrow their
booster seats (usually at age 8 or when they are 4'9" tall), they
can use the adult seat belts in the back seat, if they fit properly
(lap belt lays across the upper thighs and the shoulder belt fits
across the chest).
Remember: All children younger than 13 years should ride in
the back seat. Never place a child in the front seat facing an
airbag.


UF football arrests are piling up


Jim
Clark
sometimes emotions run very
high when we consider the
people who run our favorite
sports teams. One sudden change of
fortune can result in a turnaround
about how people feel about a cer-
tain individual.
It applies to all sports. As a Mets
fan, I'm embroiled in discussions
about how to fix the problem of los-
ing, with a new GM, a new manager,
some new players, etc. It gets pretty
heated at times in the online chat
rooms.
The nearest big-time athletic
program to Ocala is the University
of Florida, and particularly its foot-
ball team. Since Urban Meyer came
on th e n a few years ago, he has
been looked upon by many around
here as some sort of supreme being,
one who can do no wrong, bringing
two national championships to
Gainesville.
All of a sudden, that changed last
week.
The occasion was the arrest of
running back/wide receiver Chris


Rainey of Lakeland. He was ac-
cused of texting threats to his girl-
friend. It's a relatively routine,
unfortunately, domestic violence
case, this time without the violence.
But what made this one stand out
is that Rainey's arrest is the 30th in
Meyer's tenure as Florida football
coach. That's right, 30 in less than
six years.
Even his hometown newspaper
columnist turned against him.
Many people across the nation are
accusing him of running a "dirty"
program.
I wouldn't go that far. When I
think of a "dirty" program, I think
of recruiting violations, Reggie
Bush-like players or John Calipari-
like coaches. And at Florida,
there's been no evidence of that.
In addition, I feel the problem
goes a lot deeper than UF Let's
face it, a lot of these difficulties
don't suddenly surface. I'm sure if
you dig deep, you'll find that these
guys have been close to being in
trouble before.
I've seen first-hand how budding
superstars are treated, particularly
in smaller communities. They are
coddled by boosters and town offi-
cials, many of whom tend to look
the other way when there is a vio-
lation of some sort.
I'm reminded of Tiger Woods'
apology, in which he said he felt
"entitled" to certain things because
he was an athletic superstar. I sus-
pect that's how a lot of these high


school stars, about to go to a major
college, feel in their hometowns.
When they get to college, many of
them find out that they are just an-
other good player and not that spe-
cial hometown boy any longer. And
for some of them who might not
have a strong moral background in
the first place, it's hard to take.
Good guys like Tim Tebow don't
come along very often.
Meyer reacted strongly to
Rainey's arrest. He said he was
upset at the long list of arrests.
Well, coach, if you want to stop
those arrests, do a better job of re-
cruiting. Don't just look at the pass-
ing or running statistics. Don't just
look at their tackles or successful
blocks. Take a closer look at their
background, their upbringing. If it's
legal (and with the NCAA, who
knows) ask them, when you or a re-
cruiter visits their home, to invite
three of their friends who are not re-
lated to the interview See what type
of people they hang around with. Are
these the type of people you want
hanging around with your football
players after they enroll in college?
The fans are also getting tired of
the arrests, coach. I'd suggest you
do whatever you can to cut them
back. Your future could depend on
it.

The Sunday edition of the St. Pe-
tersburg Times reported that can-
didate for the governor of Florida
Rick Scott was CEO of a hospital
chain that committed massive
Medicare fraud and was made by
the courts to pay a 1.7 billion dollar
fine for misconduct. Florida Attor-
ney General Bill McCollum de-

I don't want to predict this race

Grayson makes a difference
Freshmen Congresmen can't
make a difference, except...


TO THE EDITOR


I worked for the 92nd Congress
as Communications Director for
Congressman Delbert Latta, (R)
Ohio. When I went to him he had al-
ready served 22 years in the House
and was one of the most respected
men in the House. He made a dif-
ference. He was on the House Ju-
diciary Committee when Nixon
was in office. Strangely, it was felt
Nixon had his re-election locked
up.
But on to my lead-in. Those who
want to be elected and would be
freshmen Congressmen, have
about as much influence as I have
sitting here at home. With over 400
men and women in the house they
would be fly specs, with one excep-
tion, Alan Grayson.


Being a retired person and with
my background, I follow elections
very closely, the people not the
party. Not being a Republican or
Democrat, but someone who votes
with intelligence, meaning I vote
for the best person for the job, I
don't vote a party line. To my knowl-
edge over the last 40 years there
has been no one but Alan Grayson
who has made a difference in his
freshman year as a Congressman.
No matter how you feel, we can't
give up on him. I believe he truly
has our best interests at heart and
he stands up for us. He listens!
That's important.
Now, I have no ax to grind for
Alan Grayson. All I have is respect
for him as a person and someone


who truly supports our interests in
the congress. I don't like some of his
commercials and don't know what
ad agencies some of these people
hire to help their image. Probably
none.
Oh yes, I'm really getting tired of
those campaign commercials that
end with "I approved this mes-
sage." George W was the originator
of that term and it seems as though
every candidate is using it. What do
they think, "we're stupid" to not
know they approved the message,
that they have to tell us so. Sorry, I
got off on a tangent. But, Alan
Grayson is not off on a tangent, he's
right on target or us. Don't forget it!

PEOPLE FIRST, NOT GOVERNMENT


Rhinebeck and Mr. and Mrs. Marc Mezvinsky


I Wendy E.
Binnie
The Rhinebeck Aero-
drome is not a mu-
seum of static
displays; it's a "working" mu-
seum. It has a wealth of old
aircraft, many of them pre-
and post-World War I, but
most of them fighter aircraft
from World War I itself. Most
are replicas and many look a
bit rough. Rhinebeck is not
the Smithsonian. Relatively
speaking, it's a shoestring op-
eration. This is an exciting
place to visit. It's a lot more
exciting to see replicas of
these old aircraft fly than it is
to see the originals parked or
hanging from a wire in a
building. Not all the aircraft
are replicas. Some are origi-
nals and at least one, the Ble-
riot XI (the model wherein
Louis Bleriot, in 1909, was
first to fly across the English
Channel) was an original.
Rhinebeck refers to it as a
replica because, over the
years, for one reason or an-
other, most of it has been re-
placed.
From France, in addition
to the Bleriot, there's also a
Henriot, a Caudron, a
Morane (with one wing
falling off), a Demoiselle and
an early Nieuport all very
early aircraft and, to
round out the French contin-


gent with much more "mod-
ern" and powerful WWI mod-
els, a SPAD and a late model
Nieuport. From WWI Ger-
many, a Fokker DR-1 Tri-
plane, a Fokker D-VII and an
Albatross. From England,
again from WWI, an AVRO
504k and a Sopwith Camel.
From the United States, pre-
WWI, a Curtiss model 5; from
WWI, a JN4 Jenny (built by
the Curtiss Aeroplane Com-
pany of Hammondsport, New
York); and post WWI, a Great
Lakes Speedster. In addition,
in a hangar, someone was
building a Ryan Monoplane,
a replica of the plane flown
by Charles Lindbergh, from
New York to Paris, in 1927.
For those of you who are not
familiar with the early his-
tory of aviation, these are fa-
mous planes.
So who comes along to add
to Rhinebeck's place on the
map? Chelsea Clinton and
her groom, Marc Mezvinksy.
The couple read a beautiful
poem to each other: 'The Life
That I Have' was an original
poem composed on Christ-
mas Eve 1943 and was origi-
nally written by the British
cryptologist Leo Marks in
memory of his girlfriend
Ruth, who had just died in a
plane crash in Canada. On 24
March 1944, the poem was is-
sued by Marks to Violette
Szabo, a French agent of Spe-
cial Operations Executive
who was eventually cap-
tured, tortured and killed by
the Nazis. It was made fa-
mous by its inclusion in the
1958 movie about Szabo,
called Carve Her Name with
Pride, where the poem was
said to be the creation ofVio-
lette's husband Etienne.


"The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours
The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and
yours.
A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a
pause
For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours and
yours.
The air show is held at the
Aerodrome every Saturday
and Sunday, weather permit-
ting, from mid-June through
mid-October. A planned
show was to begin with stunt
flying, followed by flights
with some very early aircraft,
then a simulated WWI dog-
fight and, finally, more stunt
flying. First up was the Great
Lakes Speedster for just a bit
of stunting, to cut up some TP
tossed from the cockpit.
Next, the Bleriot, the Henriot
and the Curtiss flew just a
few feet off the ground be-
fore setting down again.
Wing-warping, as on the
Wright Flyer, banks and
turns the Bleriot and the
Henriot, and although the
Curtiss had ailerons (Glenn
Curtiss invented them), the
wind was kicking up and the
pilots weren't about to try a
go-around of the grass field
with those old designs and
their 35 hp engines, etc.
A friend told of a bad ex-
perience when an AVRO
504k, an English trainer from
WWI, went up. The pilot
started a go around but the
engine began to cough. It was


S TA N G


thought to be just part of the
show; but then the pilot
pulled out of the pattern and
moved to land any way he
could, with the wind or even
crossways to the field; he was
in trouble. Cough, sputter;
the plane slowed. Then: si-
lence. "Get the nose down!"
Too late. The plane stalled,
dropped and disappeared
into the trees on the far side
of the field. There was an
ugly crunch of its crash.
Everyone waited anxiously
for the news. It was good: the
pilot was reported walking
and talking. That was the end
of the air show and, for a
time at least, of the AVRO.
However, even this near-
tragedy was a lesson in the
early history of aviation. It
recalled the spring of 1917,
when the average lifespan of
a fighter pilot on the Western
Front was two weeks. Most
did not succumb to enemy


fire but to crashes rather like
this one. They were quite
mad; wonderfully, heroically
mad. The simple early shows
led to a philosophy of not
only showing the aircraft in
their natural environment,
but also providing a fun and
entertaining day out for the
whole family
From this the air show the
Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome
was to become famous. It in-
cluded a zany melodrama,
inspired by the storylines of
silent film melodrama of the
past, featuring characters
such as the daring Sir Percy
Goodfellow doing battle with
the Evil Black Baron (loosely
based on the Red Baron) for
the hand of the lovely Trudy
Truelove. The collection also
includes a restored 1909 Ble-
riot XI (including an original
three cylinder Anzani radial
engine) that is the second
oldest flying aircraft in the


world. On Aug. 17, 2008,
around 4 p.m. during the per-
formance of a simulated dog
fight Vincent Nasta of Wad-
ing River, New York, died of
injuries sustained when his
plane crashed in to a heavily
wooded area 1,000 feet from
the runway and performance
area. The aircraft being used
was part of the aerodrome's
WWI collection and was re-
ported to be a reproduction
French Nieuport. The aero-
drome was partially inspired
by the existence of the Shut-
tleworth Collection in Eng-
land. These air shows still
continue mid-June through
mid-October, and biplane
rides are available before
and after the shows. Your
writer can tell you it is a trip
worth making.
As I was saying...

The growth in America's illegal aliens


Robert E.
Beckner


RIGHT DOWN


Hardly a day goes by
without hearing
about illegal aliens,
mostly crossing our southern
border and more specifically
through the state of Arizona,
although California gets its
share. You seldom hear of
other illegals comingthrough
our northern borders. Most
recently our Border Patrol is
now reporting the illegals
have taken to ships and being
dropped offshore along the
California coast. This is all
apparently history as it has
now recently been reported
Obama has found what he
believes is a legal way, at
least to his thinking, to let the
illegals here in America as
we've previously reported,
giving them amnesty. There
will be legal challenges so
we'll see in the near future
whether it holds or not.
In view of all this going on,
you are entitled to know all
there is about amnesty.
There is a history that few
know about pertaining to
America and illegal aliens.
Many believe that there has
been only one prior amnesty,
signed by President Reagan
in 1986. It was named the Im-
migration and Reform Con-
trol Act (IRCA), expected to
cover some one million ille-
gal aliens, which gave
amnesty and the opportunity
to become citizens. However,
this blanket amnesty ended
up with more than 2.7 million
illegal aliens. This amnesty
was supposed to be the only
one, the first and last.
In fact, since that time
there have been a total of six
more amnesties, using the
misnomer of "reform" or "ad-
justments." These additional
amnesties have had the ulti-


mate effect of naturalizing
millions of individuals who
knowingly entered the
United States illegally A
total of at least 5.7 million
more people have been
granted amnesty and the op-
portunity to become citizens.
We say at least, as there are
four or five times that many
people illegally in the US, no
one really knows how many
exactly, but this would put an
estimate of 22.8 million and
28.5 million. One way of esti-
mating the number of illegals
here in the states is by view-
ing the number of foreign na-
tionals arrested and now in
prison, which was much
more than had been esti-
mated.
The seven amnesties that
have been passed by Con-
gress:
1) The IRCA in 1986, a
blanket amnesty for some 2.7
million illegal aliens.
2) Section 245(i) Amnesty
1994, a temporary rolling
amnesty for 578,000 illegal
aliens.
3)Section 245(i) Extension
Amnesty 1997, an extension
of the rolling amnesty cre-
ated in 1994. The numbers
for the 245 (i) are not broken
out for 1994 and 1997.
4) Nicaraguan Adjustment
and Central American Relief
Act (NACARA) amnesty, 1997.
This amnesty was for close to
one million illegal aliens
from Central America.
5) Haitian Refugee Immi-
gration Fairness Act Amnesty
(HRIFA), 1998, an amnesty
for 125,000 illegal aliens from
Haiti.
6) Late Amnesty, 2000 an
amnesty for some illegal
aliens who claim they should
have been amnestied under
the 1986 IRCA amnesty, an
estimated 400,000 illegal
aliens.
7) LIFE Act Amnesty, 2000,
a reinstatement of the rolling
Section 245(i) amnesty, an es-
timated 900,000 illegal aliens.
When IRCA was passed by
Congress, it became a power-
ful lure for more illegal en-
tries. As touched on earlier,
the 1986 IRCA was with the
strict understanding that it
would be a one-time only for-
giveness, to be followed by
strict border and active
workplace enforcement. But,


it didn't work that way, Con-
gress would not follow up
with the strict enforcement
part of the amnesty and what
followed is history It has
been estimated that the fam-
ilies of those being granted
amnesty now will all follow
their fellow family members
and come to America, this
number is somewhere up to
30 to 50 million more illegals
all to be welcomed by Mr.
Obama and his radical fol-
lowers. They know he will
provide for each and every il-
legal with all their worldly
goods they would ever need
for the rest of their life, in-
cluding Social Security
which they would never pay
into since they wouldn't be
working, as all normal Amer-
ican do all their adult lives.
This seems entirely fair to
Obama and his re-distribu-
tion of wealth plans.
We should not forget all the
illegal aliens that Obama has
just ordered their various
"hold orders" be dismissed
immediately They will all be
directed to get current dri-
ver's licenses from whatever
state they now live in. I men-
tioned two states recently
that have huge increases.
The motor voter act that the
Democrats put into law sev-
eral years ago, allows anyone
with a drivers license to reg-
ister to vote and numerous
other American rights. So it
appears that thousands of
new Democratic voters will
show up to vote on Nov 2 in
grateful appreciation of what
Obama has done for them!
Seldom if ever have you
heard that in some states, in
this case California, that law
enforcement officials have
reported that land in the Se-
quoia National Forest and in
the National Parks of Red-
wood and Yosemite, as well
as other public lands in Col-
orado and Idaho have be-
come illegal marijuana
growing zones for Mexican
traffickers. The AP report on
this says these lands are easy
targets for traffickers as the
land is visually remote, vast
and has thick forest cover, ob-
viously a great growing ad-
vantage over the government
agents who battle this assault

The Forever National Employment Agencies


I [ ]im
i F lyyn n

We wonder whether
Tea Partiers have
seen this one: Ac-
cording to the 2011 Federal
Career Guide "The Fed-
eral Government was es-
tablished by the
Constitution to provide
services to the public...to
improve the lives of the
United States population,
as well as people around
the world."
The founding fathers
would be surprised to
learn they created a lim-
ited government whose
mission is to make all our
dreams come true and


save the world at the same
time.
The Career Guide also
describes the Department
of Labor (DOL) as part of
the "Federal Government
Industry" Government has
become a full-fledged in-
dustry! That would also be
news to the founders. If by
accident or miracle Wash-
ington comes up with a sur-
plus some year, will they
distribute dividends to tax-
payer-stockholders?
The Career Guide has
one thing right. The fed-
eral government industry
is the nation's largest em-
ployer. Excluding the
Postal Service and armed
forces, total federal em-
ployment will be 2.15 mil-
lion by the end of this year.
What happened after
President Clinton cut
375,000 federal employees
in 1996, and declared "The
era of big government is
over?" Easy answer: A one-
time cutback was unlikely
to cure Washington's addic-


tion to reckless spending
and bureaucracy building.
Smaller government
passed away quietly at the
inauguration of President
George W Bush and his
pseudo conservative Re-
publican Congress.
When Tea Partiers
adopted smaller govern-
ment as a signature issue,
out-of-power Republicans
recognized an opportunity
to claim common cause
with the would-be reform-
ers. Bush-era big spenders
would like voters to believe
they've become born-again
believers in limited gov-
ernment. Primary voters
aren't buying it.
While our civilian and
military bureaucracies
have been hiring thou-
sands of additional em-
ployees, they've also been
outsourcing untold num-
bers of domestic and over-
seas services. Thousands
of contract workers are not
counted as federal employ-
ees, even though they per-

form federal work. It's an-
other clever hocus-pocus
by Congress and Washing-
ton bureaucrats.
Dare we ask what hap-
pened to the thousands of
federal employees who
used to do the work that
contractors do now? We
know they weren't laid off,
because the total number
of federal employees keeps
going up, and howls from
their unions would have
been heard from Key West
to Point Barrow. Did they
retire early? Were they
transferred to other jobs?
Have they been promoted?
Recent news out of
Washington: "Staffing
Shortages Stymie Stimu-
lus." Efforts to pump $862
billion in stimulus into the
economy and create pri-
vate jobs are being slowed
by a shortage of 25,000
overseers of grants and
contracts. White House to
the rescue: President
Obama's budget includes
$158 million to increase
"the contracting work-
force."


How is Washington han-
dling the problem tem-
porarily? They've hired
contractors to write con-
tracts for other contractors.
That raises the interesting
problem of overseeing the
contractors who write con-
tracts with contractors
until overseers are hired.
Why aren't they using the
federal employees who
used to do the work to su-
pervise the contractor em-
ployees who are going to
do the work?
Federal bureaucrats
have remarkable imagina-
tions for make-work proj-
ects when unemployment
threatens. NASA suggested
to Congress another walk
on the barren moon might
be a nice idea. And over at
the Library of Congress
they're going to store Twit-
ter messages, beginning
with 2006, so historians can
rummage among 50 million
daily tweets for significant
social trends.
President Obama says
there's hope on the federal
budget horizon. He signed


a bill recently to save $50
billion by not sending out
any more checks to dead
people, fugitives, and in-
mates, who received a total
of $110 billion last year.
The president didn't ex-
plain why such a bill is
necessary
In all the political pos-
turing this year, we've
heard no specific propos-
als to reduce the size of
government by discontinu-
ing programs and bureau-
cracies which have
outlived necessity and be-
come nothing more than
permanent federal em-
ployment agencies.
If the agony of terminat-
ing employees who send
money to dead people is
too much for politicians to
bear, smaller government
is impossible. Washington
has no such compassion
for millions of citizens who
see their tax dollars being
spent by agencies which
have outlived their useful-
ness and deserve uncere-
monious burials.

of the cooking fires of mari-

In 2006, the estimated
$13.8 billion in income by
drug cartels, nearly $9 billion
came from marijuana sales,
according to the White
House offices of National
Drug Control Policy Those
figures are probably five
years old, so just imagine
what they would be in today's
dollars. It's interesting to
note that as far back as 1996,
the government was aware of
what unhindered illegal im-
migration would cause. Pres-
ident Clinton's Council on
Sustainable Development
then concluded that reduc-
ing current immigration lev-


E I- -,,Y,

els was a necessary part of
working toward sustainabil-
ity in the United States. Ac-
cording to demographics at
the Pew Hispanic Center,
more than 80 percent of our
population increase will be
due to immigrants and their
U.S.-born descendents by
2050. Our environmental
problems are also a popula-
tion problem. If we don't
solve our population prob-
lem we'll solve nothing. As
you can see the important is-
sues such as amnesty for ille-


gal aliens, national security
and population growth are
all tied together.
There is a lot more to ille-
gal immigration than usually
talked about so we'll cover it
in weeks to come.

Little Theatre's "Guest

cess. We provided an
evening of entertainment,
starting with an array of
hors d'oevres and assorted
wines and a superb show

the highlight of the
evening. The purpose of
"Guest Fest" was to en-
courage new membership

three mix it up with their
wildly different back

have you rolling in the

Fall into place with these stories about autumn


I Dick
Frank


PUN


Temperatures, both
day and night, have
been decreasing;
days are getting shorter;
and breezes have picked
up. Complaints about it
being too hot have ceased.
All signify that autumn has
just started. Pun Alley
plunges into the fall to
leave you with a smile on
your face while you enjoy
the nice weather.
You'll fall for this one
When the Ocala movie
theater was in its original
glory, a fellow worked
there seating people and
generally maintaining


order Every year, in Octo-
ber, when the leaves were
turning, he would hold
"The Autumn Barbecue of
the Year" at his house. This
event grew in popularity
until it was the place to be.
Each year, as the day ap-
proached, people would
ask each other, "Will I see
you at The Fall at the
House of Usher?"
Lassie's cousin
Along with the guests a
dog always showed up at
the autumn barbecue of
the year The dog would go
around eating discarded
watermelon and can-
taloupe pieces. Nobody
knew who his owner was
but they all knew the dog
was a melon collie.
Letdown
A man lay sprawled
across three seats in the
Ocala theater. When the
usher noticed this, he
whispered to the man,
"Sorry, sir, but you're only
allowed one seat."
The man groaned, but
didn't budge. The usher be-
came impatient.
"Sir, if you don't get up,
I'm going to have to call the


manager."
Once again, the man just
groaned. When the usher
returned with the manager
the two of them tried to
move the man, but with no
success.
Finally, they summoned
a policeman who asked,
"All right, what's your
name?"
"Fred," the man moaned.
"Where ya from, Fred?"
asked the cop.
With terrible pain in his
voice, Fred replied, "the
balcony"
Shortfalls
Ah yes, summer's out
and autumn's in. From
swimming pools to football
pools.
If you try to fail, and suc-
ceed, which have you
done?
I loved the end of sum-
mer when I was a kid. It al-
ways meant I no longer had
to be embarrassed by the
coach putting me in right
field.
The robber who stole a
lamp got a light sentence.

Humpty Dumpty had a
great fall to make up for a
terrible summer.
Soon those ugly patches
of dead grass in your lawn
will be covered up with
ugly patches of dead
leaves.
About the only thing you
can do on a shoestring any-
more is trip.
The actress who was
hired for the lead in a play
about Joan of Arc ended up
getting fired.
Going' to seed
Out on Route 484 a
farmer went out into the
fields early one fall morn-
ing to do some planting. He
instructed his hired hand
to hook the seeder to the
tractor and seed winter
wheat in the next field.
About an hour later, the
man came running back to
the farmer "What's the
matter?" the farmer called
out.
The man yelled as he ap-
proached: "There's a
whole bunch of tomatoes
still growing in that field
from last spring's planting.
What should I do?"
The farmer calmly
turned to him and says:


"Damn the tomatoes; full
seed ahead."
Dead giveaway
One of the students
could not take the first col-
lege test because of a fu-
neral. "No problem," the
professor told him. "Make
it up the following week."
That week came, and
again he couldn't take the
test due to another funeral.
"You'll have to take the
test early next week, but I
can't keep postponing it."
"I'll take the test next
week if no one dies."
The professor was suspi-
cious. "How can you have
so many people you know
pass away in three weeks?"
"Oh, I don't know any of
these people. I'm the only
gravedigger in town."
Class reunion
He hadn't been to a class


reunion in decades. When
he walked into the re-
union, he thought he rec-
ognized a woman over in
the corner He approached
her and extended his hand
in greeting and said, "You
look like Helen Brown."
"Well," the woman
snapped back, "you don't
look so great in blue ei-
ther!"
Stubborn leaves
A man, visiting one of the
art galleries in Gainesville
with his wife, stood for
minutes staring at a paint-
ing of a woman dressed
only in a few leaves. Fi-
nally his wife snapped at
him, "What are you waiting
for, autumn?"

of show business.
Tom and his band bring
back the foot-stomping fun
of "Thank God, I'm a Coun-
try Boy," "Rocky Mountain

Country Road," and many
other John Denver songs.
Tom says he is privileged
to be keeping John Den-

Bloodmobile by Sara Som-
mer Why Give Blood?
There is no substitute for
blood. It has to come from
one person in order to give
to another. A critical num-
ber of voluntary donations
are required every day to
meet the need for blood in
the areas we serve. How-
ever, we are consistently
falling short, and falling
short means we may not
have enough blood for
someone like you. All the
blood you give at the
Bloodmobile stays here in
Marion County
Now that the Snow Birds
are back, I hope you will
come join us again. The
Big Red Bus will be here
on Oct. 4 from 7:30 a.m. to
2:30 p.m. With your gift of
life, you always receive a
free mini physical -blood
pressure screening, cho-
lesterol screening, temper-
ature taken, and blood
clotting screening. You
never know about the ma-
terial things. It could be a
tote bag, a t-shirt, an um-
brella. My favorite is the
Grandma Cookies you can
take on your way out. That
is my reward every two
months! Come join us.
Then see your name in
next month's paper.
These donations are only
being given by the resi-
dents of the OTOW Com-

An insightful look at America's shifting culture


FREEDOM
By Jonathan Franzen

coult who find the atten-
tion sexist and patently un-
fair. Be that as it may,
"Freedom," a giant (562
pages), multi-generational
tome has been well re-
ceived by readers and crit-
ics alike.
At its center are Mid-
P a t Westerners Patty and Wal-
Wellington ter Berglund. Heading the
family in a crisis on
steroids, they clash with
their children, each other,
their siblings, their par-
ents, their neighbors, and
even their friends.
Iew Jonathan A picture perfect couple
len novel at the outset of the novel
endia frenzy who are living the good
e hacklesof fe- life, their domestic bliss
s like Jodi Pi- slowly crumbles under the
-s like Jodi Pi- *


weight of contemporary
life.
Here on the very first
page, we're told that all
does not bode well for the
Berglunds in the long run:
"The news about Walter
Berglund wasn't picked up
locally he and Patty had
moved away to Washington
two years earlier and
meant nothing to St. Paul
now but the urban gen-
try of Ramsey Hill were
not so loyal to their city as
not to read the New York
Times. According to a long
and unflattering story, Wal-
ter had made quite a mess
of his professional life out
there in the nation's capi-
tol. His old neighbors had
difficulty reconciling the
quotes about him ('arro-
gant,' 'high-handed,' 'ethi-
cally compromised') with
the generous, smiling, red-


faced 3M employee they
remembered pedaling his
commuter bicycle up Sum-
mit Avenue in February
snow; it seemed strange
that Walter, who was
greener than Greenpeace
and whose own roots were
rural, should be in trouble
for conniving with the coal
industry and mistreating
country people. Then
again, there had always
been something not quite
right about the Berglunds."
Questioning the book's
title, an interviewer asked
the author if there should-
n't be a question mark after
it since none of the charac-
ters are really free.
Franzen's reply was that
the real question is why
when Americans have so
much freedom they should
be so angry and unhappy
A case in point is son


Joey on whom Patty has
centered all her attention
while neglecting her
daughter and her husband.
As a youth Joey is led to be-
lieve he has myriad poten-
tials. As an adult this
promise has only led to
confusion:" This wasn't the
person he'd thought he
was, or would have chosen
to be if he'd been free to
choose, but there was
something comforting and
liberating about being an
actual definite someone,
rather than a collection of
contradictory potential
someones."
This is a beautifully writ-
ten, funny, insightful look
at America's shifting cul-
ture. Recommended un-
less you're intimidated by
the sheer size of the book.
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.

Natural Disaster Pre-
paredness for Seniors
Florida's hurricane sea-
son is during the months
from June through Novem-
ber. Although we have fin-
ished up summer with no
major issues, we still have
several months to go be-
fore our hurricane season
is officially over. As we
watch Igor and Julia
churning away in the At-
lantic, it's important to be
prepared and plan ahead.
Listed here you will find
important information to
help you prepare.
Create an Emergency
Network Be sure you
have a network of family,
friends, professional care-
givers, neighbors, and oth-
ers to assist you in an
emergency Discuss your
plan with all concerned.
Familiarize yourself with
local disaster resources
and emergency shelters.
Develop a Map of Re-
sources Identify primary
and backup local resources
like emergency shelters,
pharmacies and dialysis
centers. Plan multiple lo-
cations and routes for
evacuation (in case roads
are blocked). During an
evacuation, families may
be separated. Be sure to
establish a meeting place
by designating a familiar
location or family mem-
ber's home as a meeting
point. Family members
should also be sure to have
an updated photo of their
elderly relative.
Emergency Information
Package This package
would include basic med-
ical information such as
medications, drug aller-
gies, medical ailments,
copies of prescriptions,
contact information for
your family and doctors,
medical power of attorney
or living will, proof of in-
surance, social security
documents and identifica-
tion.
Evacuation Pack- If you
must leave your residence,
you should be prepared to
take care of basic needs for
at least 72 hours. You will
need basic food and water,
medications and medical
supplies, a blanket, pillow,
air mattress, personal hy-
giene items and extra
clothing. Determine
whether or not you will be
transported to a Special
Needs Shelter and make
arrangements for that
ahead of time.
Refill all Prescriptions -
Be sure to have an ample
supply of all daily medica-
tions and have portable
versions of any necessary
medical equipment.
Prepare Your Home -
Remove all loose outside
items such as potted plants
and lawn furniture that
may become projectiles in
high winds. If you own a
swimming pool, this is an
excellent place to store
non-metallic outdoor fur-
niture until after the storm
passes. Be prepared for
the loss of power and
water. If you are not going
to evacuate, fill your bath
tub and any clean/sterile
plastic containers with
water in case the local
water service is turned off.


Stock up on Supplies -
Have a three day supply of
food, water and ice on
hand. Stock up on canned
goods, non-perishable food
and bottled water. Be sure
to have at least two flash-
lights and plenty of spare
batteries in case your
power goes out for a pro-
longed period of time.
Stay in Touch Keep
your cell phone handy and
inform all in your emer-
gency network of your cell
number in advance. Have a


portable radio with plenty
of extra batteries to stay in-
formed of current weather
conditions.

ticipated in the Friday
game making this one of
the largest fields prior to
July. Closest to the pin
were Emmett Dowling and
Dick Blackburn on white
tees and Joe Burkhard and
Ray Hagerman on the sen-
ior reds.
Here is some important
information regarding Oc-
toberfest. My apologies to
all who read last week's
scores. Octoberfest will not
be two man best ball. The
format will be a shambles.
Yes that is the correct
spelling. Simply put a
shambles consists of 4-man
teams where everyone tees
off, then plays the best
drive and their own ball to
finish the hole. Confused?
Don't be. Just make your
check out to ROMGA for
$17 and sign up in the
men's locker room
Virgil finally did it. Jim
Smith did not come in first
this week, but second place
is not that bad. Keep those
birdies flying and remem-
ber Octoberfest.

YOUR DENTAL
HEALTH
j ,, -


byM. E Hampton, D.D.S.
IS TOOTH
REGENERATION
IN THE FUTURE?
Each year, dentists treat
millions of cavities that result
from the enamel-eating acids
emitted by sugar-eating bacteria
missed by flossing and brushing.
While drilling out tooth decay and
filling cavities with amalgam or
composite fillings has proven
extremely effective in preserving
the remaining healthy tooth
structure, patients often wish they
could somehow magically
eliminate any decay and simply
regenerate the tooth back to its
previous healthy state. That wish
may someday be a reality because
scientists have identified a peptide
know as MSH (melanocyte-
stimulating hormone) that
encourages cells within decayed
teeth to regenerate in about one
month. When introduced into the
teeth in a gel or film in the
laboratory, cavities disappeared
and were replaced by healthy
tooth structure.
Drilling teeth and filling them
is safe and effective. However,
though we numb the tooth, many
patients still rue the sound of that
drill. This column has been
brought to you in the interest of
better dental health by the office
of MARK E. HAMPTON,
DD.DS.. Call us today at 352-489-
5071 for an appointment. Have
you been putting off seeing a
dentist? We're located at 11902
Illinois Street, where we're
currently accepting new patients.
We provide cosmetic, functional,
and preventive dental care for all
ages. You can rely on us to answer
all your questions about dental
treatments and procedures.
We're "Dedicated to Excellent
Dentistry."

P.S. MSH (melanocyte-
stimulating hormone) has not
demonstrated any ability to
prevent cavities, which means that
it is no substitute for flossing and
brushing.

* Volunteer Recognition Award


Ro g
Patterson


MARION


In addition to being a long
time Community Patrol
member, this month's
recognized volunteer has
also served as vice president
and treasurer of this team.
He has helped organize sev-
eral years of Senior Games
programs and can usually be
seen on kitchen duty or serv-
ing at those infamous Raf-
fony breakfasts. Hats off to
Howard Shay, another neigh-
bor who helps keep Marion
Landing the super address
we know it to be.
It's been a longtime
President, Joe Raffony's
welcome to homeowners at


the grand opening of our re-
decorated Lifestyle Center
merits your attention.
"Welcome to our redeco-
rated Lifestyle center. The
Board thanks you for your
patience and cooperation
while work was being done.
It is a spectacular improve-
ment to this facility and was
worth waiting for. Last year,
prior to being elected to the
Board, we had a candidate's
night. One of the questions
asked of the candidates was
what they thought were the
strengths of the Marion
Landing Association. My re-
sponse was I felt our main
strength was our Homeown-
ers. One example of that
strength was demonstrated
over the past two years with
the remodeling project of the
Lifestyle center. While a con-
tractor did the actual work, a
committee made up of some
of our neighbors recom-
mended to the Board every
aspect of the project, includ-
ing the new carpeting, dance


floor, style, colors, type of
molding, new lighting and
new storage areas to name a
few. During implementation
of both Phase 1 and Phase 2,
the contractors commented
positively about planning in-
formation they received.
This information also in-
cluded detailed architec-
tural drawings. The
Decorating Committee is
chaired by Gordon Herrick
and the members are Joan
DeWitt, Phyllis and Mike
Kalman (Mike generated the
drawings), Eddie Mock, Jan-
ice Raffony, Dave and Lor-
raine Rusch. I also want to
thank Pam Guenther our ac-
tivities coordinator who par-
ticipated in development of
committee recommenda-
tions. Another person we
need to thank is our CAM
Deeann Welch. In addition to
working with the committee
for both Phase 1 and Phase 2
projects, Deeann prepared
the Bid Scope packages, in-
sured that the Bidders un-


derstood the Bid Scope, and
reviewed the proposals to
ensure compliance to the Bid
Scope. After the Board made
the contractor selection,
Deeann ensured that the job
was completed in accor-
dance with the specifica-
tions. There's one other
person and that was Board of
Directors liaison to the com-
mittee, Bill Wurst. Besides
his responsibility as Board li-
aison, he had one other very
important task. Bill was
given responsibility to select
all the color schemes. Not
bad for someone who cannot
tell one color from another."


Water, water, everywhere?
Marion Landing neighbor
Janet Smith called to ask if
I'd like to meet her son,
Randy He was visiting dur-
ing break in a 14,500-mile, 4-
month Blue Planet bus tour.
Wouldn't YOU be curious
enough to find out what
something like that was all
about?
It turned out Randy's tour
bus company owned the
coach used on Blue Planet's
tour and he was subbing for
their regular driver during
one of those four months.
The phrase "taking bus dri-
ver's holiday" came to mind,

SAre you ready to grumble?


Rev.
James L.
Snyder


OUT TO


Normally (depending
on which definition
of normal you are
using), I am not given to
much grumbling. I do
admit to every now and
then exercising my right to
complain a little, but it is
not anything to write home
about.
If you would inquire
with the Gracious Mistress
of the Parsonage she might
have a different opinion al-
together. It seems that the
only thing we really agree
on is that we do not agree
on too much. Our biggest
disagreement would be in
this area of grumbling.
Just the other day I was
exercising my First
Amendment right when my
wife looked at me and said,
"Are you grumbling


again?"
What is a husband to do?
If I answer in the negative,
she gives me one of those
looks that pierces asunder
to the soul. She has done
this so much that I can hon-
estly say that I have a holey
soul. Then again, if I an-
swer in the affirmative I
acknowledge that she is
right and I am grumbling.
So I do not know what
grumbling really is or if,
like my wife insists, I am
the all-time record holding
champion of the art of
grumbling. As far as I am
concerned, I just have an
opinion and like sharing
that opinion with all and
sundry
To develop the fine art of
grumbling there are rules.
For example, some things
are off limit. I never grum-
ble about my wife's cooking
or keeping the house for
the simple reason that she
is the immaculate concep-
tion of effectiveness when
it comes to those house-
hold chores and duties.
After all, I never complain
about someone who pre-
pares my meals and has
control of the ingredients


that go into my meal.
There is one area that is
a completely free-for-all
when it comes to grum-
bling. That area is simply
the political arena. Every
United States citizen has a
free pass when it comes to
complaining about politi-
cians. After all, we pay our
taxes, usually on time.
This brings me to my first
area of grumbling when it
comes to politics. Why is it
that so many elected to of-
fice forget about paying
their income tax? I know it
only comes once a year,
every year and the taxes
are deducted on our pay-
roll, but everyone knows
how easy it is to forget to
pay taxes. I am seriously
considering running for
some political office, any
office will do, just for the
benefits; huge salary, enor-
mous retirement benefits,
the rest-of-my-life health
care and I can forget to pay
my income tax. What other
profession offers so much
for so little brainpower?
Another area of grum-
bling has to do with telling
the truth. What other pro-
fession is built upon lie


after lie after lie. Then
when caught in a down-
right lie, you explain it
away by saying, "That was
taken out of context." Or, "I
did not have sex with that
woman."
In just about every pro-
fession, as far as I can think
of, except used-car sales-
men and televangelists,
there are penalties to pay
if you tell a lie. However, in
the area of the professional
politician you cannot climb
the ladder in politics un-
less you are an expert Lies-
man. Moreover, you do not
have to be that good of a
liar. I am thinking about
writing a song titled, "The
Washington Liesman," and
have Glen Campbell sing it
for us.
This, as far as I can un-
derstand, is a bipartisan
problem. Both sides of the
aisle have developed un-
paralleled expertise in this
area. And the American
taxpayer has paid hand-
somely for this accom-
plishment.
That is exactly why this
is fertile area for profes-
sional grumbling. The
motto of the Professional


Political Grumbler Associ-
ation is, "I am neither a
Republican nor a Democ-
rat, I am simply against
anyone in office."
We are now encroaching
the new election cycle. All
these election cycles have
me in a dizzy frame of
mind. I am not sure whom
to vote for this time. I am
thinking about starting a
write in campaign for Mr.
Ed, the talking horse. He
had more sense in his left
hoof than any 97 politi-
cians combined. At least
there were periods when
Mr. Ed would not talk. Try-
ing to find time when a
politician is not talking is
about as frustrating as pay-
ing your taxes on April 15.
No wonder politicians are
concerned about climate
change. All that hot air in
Washington.
The only good thing
about any election cycle is
that it gives me opportu-
nity to vent some grum-
bling not associated with
my wife.
Looking at my tally sheet
for the upcoming midterm
elections, my mouth is wa-
tering. Never has there

EVERYONE WELCOME ..


been a time in the history
of the United States of
America when there was
more to grumble about in
the area politics. This has
to be a grumbler's haven.
This time it is like trying
to pick through a barrel of
rotten apples. There has to
be a good apple some-
where, but Lands 0 Lib-
erty, by the time you find
one it has begun to rot.
I had been thinking
about how blessed our na-
tion has been and thought
of what the Scripture says.
"Blessed is the nation
whose God is the LORD;
and the people whom he
hath chosen for his own in-
heritance." (Psalms 33:12
KJV).
God's blessing on our na-
tion is in danger of becom-
ing a footnote in some
history book

LANDING
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 21
the east coast, they would
next travel north inland and
eventually spend time on the
west coast. You'll find lots of
details about the tour's route,
theme and other interesting
information on www.blue-
planet.com as well as
www.nationalgeographic.co
m/water. I discovered a cal-
culator for my water foot-
print offering me a chance to
join 2,300 others pledging
conservation. And when you
learn 1,799 gallons of water
are consumed to produce
one pound of beef, 576 gal-
lons per pound of pork and a
whopping 880 gallons for
each gallon of milk, it makes
you think a bit.
Marion Landing residents
have a vested interest in
water conservation, being
entirely dependent upon our
community wells and "Swift-
mud's" benevolence in de-
ciding how much we can
draw from our aquifer. Water
conservation can be just as
painless or painful as you
choose to make it.
Big Easy here we come
Off in a couple of days to


hang out with our Travel
Committee hosts and several
dozen neighbors during our
week-long trip to New Or-
leans. It's something my co-
pilot and I are anticipating
with relish. During our last
visit to the Big Easy, Presi-
dent Ronald Reagan was
shot.. so you'll know it's been
quite a while. But Preserva-
tion Hall is still pounding out
real jazz, you still need to
shake off excess powdered
sugar before nibbling those
beignets with your chicory
coffee at Cafe de Monde and
I may even learn how to pro-
nounce Tchoupitoulas to find
the street where Tipitina's is.
We can do without Emeril
LaGasse's commercial take
on vittles if time permits
brunching with genuine jazz
in the background at Court of
the Two Sisters. And the
mandatory stroll up that
acorn strewn archway to Oak
Alley Plantation wouldn't be
out of line, either. Under-
stand tourist traps along De-
catur now peddle "tossin'
beads" for about a buck,
while the nicer ones go for
four or five times as much.
Maybe more next time.
Reducing county deficit?
Reading my Notice of Pro-


posed Property Taxes we all
received recently from prop-
erty appraiser Villie Smith's
office prompted me to won-
der whether he had been
charged with saving Marion
County from financial dis-
tress.
We were politely advised
the market value of our
house had gone down an-
other 10 percent, yet as-
sessed value had gone up 3
percent and proposed taxes
raised by 7 percent, as well.
Maybe Villie's office has to
make up for County Commis-
sioners decidingto eliminate
impact fee income or some
other clever decision that au-
gust group has made during
the past few years suggesting
their favor falls with just
about anyone other than the
general public. Am I ticked
off ... nah, just a bit fasci-
nated by this creative arith-
metic.
Did You Know?
Did you know the first cou-
ple shown in bed together on
prime time television were...
(drum roll).. Fred and Wilma
Flintstone?

Landing resident and

Local couple mark 70th anniversary


Frank and Maxine Wood
will celebrate their 70th
wedding anniversary on
Sept. 29, 2010. They were
married in West Des
Moines, Iowa, on Sept. 29,


1940. They are the parents
of two sons, Dennis of
Yakima, Wash., and Gary of
Dacula, Ga.; five grandchil-
dren and nine grandchil-
dren.


Frank, a veteran of World
War II, served three and a
third years in the Army Air
Corps, Air Transport Com-
mand, including 28 months
in the China Burma India
Theatre, involved with fly-
ing the air supply route of
the Himalaya Mountains,
known as the "Hump," in
support of Gen. Claire
Chennault's 14th Air Force,
famed "Flying Tigers."
Maxine kept busy on the
home front, caring for their
young son, selling War
Bonds and serving in vari-
ous civilian defense activi-
ties.
After Air Corps discharge
and obtaining an FAA air-
craft mechanics license,
Frank was employed by
United Air Lines in Wash-
ington, D.C., then trans-
ferred to Chicago and
retired Sept. 1, 1980. They
moved from Downers
Grove, Illinois, to Ocala in
1989.

/ 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.
