Benefit set for West Port group


Benefit performances of War at
Home, a play chronicling personal
reactions to the 9/11 attacks, will
take place at the Insomniac The-
atre, July 8 and 9 at 7 p.m., and
July 10 at 3 p.m. The Insomniac
Theatre is in downtown Ocala at 1
E. Silver Springs Blvd. Tickets are
$5 and all proceeds will go toward
the production costs involved in
taking the play to Edinburgh, Scot-
land in August. For ticket informa-
tion, sales and reservations call
804-3977 or go to www.ticket-
derby com.
The West Port High School The-
atre Department under the direc-
tion of Janet Shelley has been
selected to perform at Edinburgh
Fringe Festival, the largest and
most prestigious arts festival in
the world as part of the American
High School Theatre Festival


(AHSTF). The Fringe Festival in-
cludes over 1,800 different per-
formances of music, theatre,
dance, and comedy during its
three week run. West Port High
School's performance of War at
Home will be showcased at the
Church Hill Studio Theatre in Ed-
inburgh.
West Port High School was se-
lected by the AHSTF Board of Ad-
visors to represent the United
States as part of the 2011 AHSTF
program. The school was nomi-
nated by Mary Britt of the Ocala
Civic Theatre and Professor Earl
Weaver of the University of Cen-
tral Florida. Weaver said, "The
Theatre Department at West Port
High School is one of the best in
the state.
Janet Shelley continually pro-
duces top-quality students and


theatrical productions unmatched
by most high school theatre pro-
grams. Students from West Port
High School who have attended
the University of Central Florida
have proven to be some of the
finest candidates graduating from
our BFA programs, especially in
musical theatre. We actively re-
cruit students from West Port High
School because they historically
demonstrate the best skill level,
success with academic rigor, and
discipline in their craft. They are
most deserving of the American
High School Theatre Festival
nomination and acceptance they
have received." Out of 2,000 high
schools nominated across the
United States and Canada, West
Port was one of only 48 schools se-
lected to perform and the only
Florida school to travel this year.

These signs are available to warn boaters.


MANATEES
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission's (FWC)
hotline number (1-888-404-
3922) for reporting mana-
tees in distress.
Dr. Katie Tripp, director
of science and conserva-
tion for Save the Manatee
Club, says the public
awareness signage com-
bined with responsible
boating and better report-
ing of injured manatees
can make a significant dif-
ference in the lives of
Florida's gentle giants.
"Even though Florida's
manatee population suf-
fers from frequent, possibly
daily watercraft strikes,
there are only a handful of
strikes that have been fully
reported and documented.
It is crucial that boaters re-
port known or possible
manatee strikes to the
FWC. This reporting is es-
sential for scientists to bet-
ter understand the physics
of manatee watercraft
strikes, and for managers
to most effectively assign
areas of needed protection
on our state's waterways."
Julie Doble posted the
Club's manatee awareness
sign on a canal in Apollo
Beach that leads to Tampa
Bay "We observed quite a
few dolphins in our canal
in January and then came
the manatees," said Doble.
"I grew tired of running out
onto the dock to wave and
shout at boaters who were
going too fast and didn't un-
derstand the meaning of
'no wake' zone."
Over in Hernando
County, Patricia Cosner
also posted one of the
Club's dock signs on her
property "Our canal dead
ends so we put it on an
angle facing the oncoming
boats," Cosner explained.
"My neighbors and I find it
a privilege to be able to see
the manatees in their natu-
ral habitat and it is our re-
sponsibility to help keep
the waterways as safe as
possible. When a boat ap-
proaches and there are
manatees in the water, we
point to our sign and then
to the water and ask them
to cut their engine while
passing."
Dr. Tripp also reminds
those who will be boating
and fishing over the July 4
weekend to properly dis-
pose of monofilament fish-
ing line in recycling bins
located at most boat ramps
and other select locations


because of the threat that
discarded line poses to
manatees and other ma-
rine life.
The free signs, banners
and decals can be obtained
by contacting Save the
Manatee Club via e-mail at
education@savethemana-
tee.org, by regular mail at
500 N. Maitland Ave., Mait-
land, FL 32751, or by call-

for Boaters" can be found

A47-year old man was
arrested for residen-
_ ial burglary and
petit theft after he was
found in an unoccupied
house. Eugene Bradford
Weir was discovered hid-
ing in a bathroom in a
house owned by Live Oak
Stud Farm on Southwest
31st Street by the farm's
property manager, who
called deputies. The sus-
pect told the manager that
he was homeless and
needed a place to sleep.
The manager was checking
residences because of a
burglary at another loca-
tion.
In what was described as
a "spontaneous outburst"
to the investigating deputy,
Weir said he wanted to go
to jail as he had nowhere to
go. He further stated, ac-
cording to the report, that
he had watched the "swim-
ming pool lady" clean the
pool and when she left, he
found the key and let him-
self in. According to the re-
port, he went on to say he
found three steaks in the
refrigerator, cooked them
along with rice and beans,
and ate most of it. He also
stated he drank some
liquor and washed his
clothing.
The resident is in Aus-
tria and could not be
reached to confirm what
was stolen or consumed.
The deputy said Weir
told him he had been doing
the same type of crime
since last October, and that
in order not to be discov-
ered he "meticulously"
cleans up the residence be-
fore leaving so no one
knows he was there.

Facebook posting results in arrest


Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) investigators arrested a Tampa man June 17 after
receiving a complaint about photos that had been posted
on Facebook.
The complaint said that a deer and alligator had been
freshly killed and that the suspected hunter, Kyle Ed-
wards, 21, was also in the photos.
The animals allegedly were killed near Bronson in
Levy County on private property north of Otter Creek.
FWC Investigator James Smith interviewed Edwards,
who stated that on June 10, he and a friend went to the
property in Otter Creek to camp and shoot a new AK-47
he had recently purchased at a Tampa gun show.
The two men saw an alligator on the dirt road leading
to the camp, and Edwards shot and killed it. He ex-
plained they cleaned it, ate some of the meat and later
gave the rest of the alligator meat to friends. The carcass

Drunk boaters targeted


Last year, 17 people died
from boating accidents re-
lated to alcohol and drug
use in Florida.
"Alcohol- and drug-re-
lated boating accidents are
preventable," said Capt.
Tom Shipp, of the FWC's
Boating and Waterways
Section. "Even one death is
too many."
That is why law enforce-
ment agencies around the
state and country are par-
ticipating in "Operation
Dry Water" this weekend.
This nationwide public-ed-
ucation effort is designed
to prevent alcohol-related
accidents and fatalities.
FWC officers, along with
local law enforcement and
the U.S. Coast Guard, will


crack down on boating
under the influence (BUI)
violations. "While our offi-
cers always look for BUIs,"
Shipp said, "this weekend,
they are making a special
effort to stop this danger-
ous activity"
2009 was the inaugural
year for this effort, and the
program's effectiveness
made repeating it worth-
while. Last year, agencies
in all 50 states and six U.S.
territories participated, in-
teracting with more than
60,000 boaters and taking
322 impaired operators off
the water before they could
kill or injure themselves or
someone else. The FWC
alone arrested 12 boaters
for BUI.


was disposed of on a dump pile near the camp.
The next day, Edwards said, he shot and killed the
deer. After taking a photograph of the animal, they re-
peated the process by cleaning the deer, eating some of
the meat and giving the rest to friends. That carcass also
ended up in the dump pile.
Edwards admitted to posting the photographs on his
Facebook page and later removing the photos. He gave
Smith a written statement about the incidents.
FWC investigators were able to locate and document
the two animal carcasses as evidence in the case.
Edwards was issued a citation for taking deer during
the closed season, a first-degree misdemeanor, and for
the illegal taking of an American alligator, a second-de-
gree misdemeanor.

"The one you know"


MICHEL NORTHSEA
West Marion Messenger

Two days before his 85th
birthday, Sam Fowler, of
Dunnellon, got to take a
trip he says that he "can't
brag about enough."
Fowler was one of 104
veterans flown to the na-
tion's capital last week as
part of the Honor Flight.
The trip was the third
Honor Flight leaving from
the Ocala International
Airport in the past two
years, taking veterans of
World War II to see the me-
morial built in their honor.
"I was so thrilled, every-
thing was well done, so
carefully conceived," he
said about the day-long
trip.
The morning started
early for veterans, around
5:30 a.m., as they gathered
at the airport, went
through security and
boarded the plane for Bal-
timore. At Baltimore, they
boarded buses to take
them to the National Mon-
ument Mall to see the
World War II Memorial and
Korean War Memorial.
Visits to Lincoln memo-


rial, the Arlington National
Cemetery, the Tomb of the
Unknown Soldier and see-
ing the changing of the
guards was also included
in the day's activities.
Ocala Palms resident
Bill Stewart declared the
trip as "very nice" even
though he found the World
War II Memorial "not as
good as I thought it would
be." He says other memori-
als for WWII veterans in
Kansas City, Philadelphia
and Hawaii are more im-
pressive than the national
one.
The trip also gave Stew-
art the opportunity to see
his two sons and their
wives when they met him
at the memorial.
Bob Larsen, also of Ocala
Palms, said he found the
memorial to be "very im-
pressive." Understanding
the use of the expression
"Kilroy was here" during
World War II he appreci-
ated finding those same
words engraved on the me-
morial. During the war as
U.S. forces left one area to
move to another, they
would etch the saying
somewhere in the area

they had occupied.
World War II veterans go
on the flight at no cost to
them. Each flight costs
around $70,000 or $450 in-
dividually
Veterans in good health
can make their trip even if
they use a wheelchair.
Fowler noticed how well
those in wheelchairs were
cared for by those in atten-
dance.
"They accommodated
those in wheelchairs with
kindness," Fowler said.
"It was a good time. My
mouth runs five miles a
minute and I can't brag
enough about the trip,"
Fowler said. "I met a lot of
nice people and hugged a
bunch of pretty girls."
Fowler was referring to
the wait staff from Ocala's
Tilted Kilt. The women
came out both in the morn-
ing and for the welcome
home ceremony that
evening - sharing hugs
with the veterans and col-
lecting donations.
Organizers are planning
a second trip this year in
October. Donations to the
cause can be made
through: Florida Depart-
ment of VFW with Ocala
Honor Flight, in the sub-
ject line. Those checks
should be mailed to Honor
Flight Marion County, c/o
Florida Department of
VFW, PO. Box 1630, Ocala,
Fla., 34478.
Such donations will help
other World War II veter-
ans enjoy a trip.
"It was a day I'll never
forget," Larsen said.

Cars of the future visit sheriff I


MICHEL NORTHSEA
West Marion Messenger

Law enforcement offi-
cers from several different
agencies got a first-hand
glimpse of some new police
cars last week.
And the Marion County
Sheriff's Office may just be
in the market for at least
100 of those patrol cars.
The department has 150
cars with more than
150,000 miles on the
odometer.
The vehicle driven by the
sheriff himself has more
than 185,000 miles on it.
His vehicle isn't the main
concern.
Cars with high mileage
are not as stable in high
speed pursuits, Judge
Cochran, public informa-
tion officer for the sheriff's
office said.
In better financial times,
the department budgeted
to replace 60 cars per year
but for the last four years
that hasn't happened.
Sworn personnel are as-
signed 319 vehicles and ve-
hicles are used by
non-sworn personnel.
This year "turn-back"
money of $2 million could
help the department catch
up on replacing some of
those cars.
Monies budgeted for
2011 but not used are re-
ferred to as "turn-back"
money.
The savings came from
vacant employee positions
not filled and a 'lock-down'
on expenditures. A change


in the rates for retirement
also added to the savings,
Dan Kuhn, chief of staff,
said, adding the staff posi-
tions not filled were elimi-
nated from the 2012
proposed budget.
On display were the Ford
Police Interceptor and the
Police Interceptor Utility
Vehicle and the Chevrolet's
police vehicle - the
Caprice, Impala and
Tahoe.
Nearby law enforcement
agencies- sheriff's depart-
ments from Citrus,
Lafayette and Levy County
as well as Ocala, Dunnel-
lon and Belleview police -
visited the operation cen-
ter to see the cars on dis-
play
Currently, the sheriff's
office uses Ford Crown Vic-
torias in their law enforce-
ment duties but Ford has
discontinued production of
the model.
The new Taurus-based
offering goes into produc-
tion at the end of the year

ing radiator, the ability to

Besides the cost of the
car, which is not yet deter-
mined, it costs another
$8,000 to outfit the cars
with radios, computers,
cage and light bar.
Purchasing the cars
under the state contract
could reduce the cost of
each vehicle and the sher-
iff's office fleet manage-
ment office will transfer
much of the equipment
from the older vehicle to
save money, William Boss,
fleet management director
said.
In choosing between the
Chevrolet and Ford vehi-
cles the opinions of staff
would be considered but
price points would be pri-
mary concern, Boss said.
Sitting in the driver's
seat of the Ford Inceptor,
Chris Kennedy, a member
of the sheriff's office cadet
program, spoke of the pos-
sibilities.

OUR VIEW



Sen. Dean wants


to limit your access

Many people, including those who cover politics for a
living, feel that some politicians must go to political
school and take a course called "avoiding the question."
Last week, as he spoke to the State Road 200 Coali-
tion, State Sen. Charlie Dean from Citrus County
showed that he was very adept at that part of being an
elected official.
First, some background. Legal advertising is that
which is required by law to be published in newspa-
pers. It involves such small items as calling for bids, fic-
titious names, divorce notices, etc., and such major
things as the annual huge section publicizing delin-
quent taxes.
The South Marion Citizen cannot publish legal ad-
vertising, because there is a state law that says what are
commonly called legalss" must be published in paid cir-
culation newspapers. As you all know, the Citizen is
free. There are many newspapers in the area, both
daily and weekly, that are eligible to print the notices.
Dean is pushing, in the Legislature, to remove all
legals from newspapers. He wants them to be online,
and last week also added the possibility of publishing
them on cable television local community channels.
After Dean's speech, he opened the floor for ques-
tions, and the first query came from the Citizen as he
was asked why he wanted to put the legals on the In-
ternet, when he was speaking to a group of people,
many of whom "are not of the computer generation."
His first comment: "Newspapers are a dying breed."
Sorry, Charlie. That wasn't the question. He never ad-
dressed the fact that he was talking to many people who
are not up to par on computers, people who would be
cut out of reading legals if they go on the Internet.
He continued with his response, directing it to the Cit-
izen as if the questioner worked for the big Marion
County daily, despite his being introduced before the
meeting. He was quickly corrected, which caused a
quick change of subject.
It would be interesting what the people who live in
the 15,000 or so households who get the Citizen every
week would say Our newspaper is currently not a dying
breed to them, but does he think that these people are
a dying breed? We like to think our readers are very
much alive, and are capable of making their own deci-
sions when it comes to where they get their informa-
tion.
In addition to the weakness of having these people
depend on the Internet for legals, does Dean really
think that people sit down, turn on their televisions and
go to the information channel? If they're like us, they
first go to the guide to find out what's on the tube, and
the community channel is not their main source.
There was one thing Dean talked about that we agree
with. He is on a committee to do with redistricting as a
result of last year's census. He said that he feels dis-
tricts should move out to county lines.
We hope that's true. Then maybe we could get one of
our own Marion County residents as our state senator,
someone who realizes that the real dying breed is good
ol' boy politicians, and that newspapers will be around
long after they're gone.

Do you lock your car when
you leave it in the driveway overnight?


COMMENTARY


Lock your car, take your keys, please


This seems to come up every
year, and, frankly, I don't
understand why it is such a
problem. When you leave your
car in your driveway or carport
overnight, make sure you lock
the car.
This is the time of the year
when the "creepers" make their
rounds. "Creepers" are people,
many of them young, who roam
through the neighborhoods in
the wee hours. They try the door
handles of cars that are exposed,
and if it opens, they go in and
steal stuff ...sometimes expen-
sive stuff. They generally don't
break in to locked cars. They
only take from the people who
make it easy for them.
And if you don't think they can
get much that way, looking over
recent Sheriff's Office reports
we see a Rolex watch, among
other things. GPS devices are
usually popular. CDs and other
musical items are also on the list
of things that go missing in the
night. In the past we've come
across reports showing that peo-
ple's wallets were taken.
And if you have a garage but
you park a car outside the
garage, be ready for the garage


door opener to disappear, only to
be used at a later date to gain
entry into your house.
What do you keep in your glove
compartment? Are you ready to
lose it? It can happen very easily
Don't underestimate the effect
such an occurrence can have on
the victim. I still remember,
many years ago when I lived in
Palatka, having an old car that I
used and parked in the driveway
I went out to go to work and got
in the car and turned the key ...
and nothing happened. Dead
battery, I thought. So I opened
the hood, which was one of those
old hood latches you could open
from the outside, so I could jump
start the car. Guess what? The
dead battery turned out to be no
battery The cables had been cut
and the battery taken.
For quite some time after that,
every time I heard a noise out-


side at night, I went running to
the window to look out.
There was nothing I could
have done to prevent that, but
nowadays, with almost all cars
having a hood latch connected to
a pull cord inside the car, it
couldn't happen. However, if you
leave your car unlocked, a thief
can get in, release the hood latch
and, like me, your dead battery
could be no battery
Of course, a car alarm that
goes off when someone tries to
open a locked door would be
nice, but not all cars have that
feature. If you did, maybe you
could help catch these creepers.
But please, don't make it easy
for them. The more people in a
neighborhood that discourage
them, the less likely that they'll
return. And if it's late at night
and you spot a group of two or
more wandering your neighbor-
hood where they don't belong, let
the Sheriff's Office know. You
could be helping save your
neighbors from a rough morning
the next day

Getting jobbed by the federal government


The word "job" has many
definitions - work, occupa-
tion, profession, employ-
ment, and others. When a
headline reads "Obama says he
will focus on job creation," we
know we're being jobbed.
The British definition of
"jobbed" is being victimized by
something done ostensibly for
the public welfare, but actually
done for personal gain. The pres-
ident's recent announcement
that he has a plan to train 10,000
engineers a year isn't job cre-
ation. It's a feel-good, re-election
campaign announcement that
more money will be spent train-
ing people for whom no jobs are
available.
The president's highly edu-
cated and generously paid coun-
cil of economic advisers has
been pushed out of the jobs dis-
cussion in favor of his "Jobs
Council" of successful big busi-
ness executives. Chumming with
people who actually create jobs
casts a better campaign image.
The president jokes that the
architects of his $800 billion 2009
stimulus program had no idea
that "shovel ready projects"
would take years to get going.
Those of us who have partici-
pated in hundreds of meetings
concerning the design, licensing,
financing, and contracts for
many multi-million dollar proj-
ects know from experience it
takes years before a backhoe (not
a shovel) breaks ground.
The president and his advisers
on the other hand have spent all
their working years in academia,
community organizing, and gov-
ernment service. Much of the


Jim Flynn
Columnist


2009 stimulus money was spent
"saving jobs" of state, and local
government employees and
other supporters of the presi-
dent's campaign for re-election.
Government creates jobs more
quickly than the private sector,
by increasing its bloated bureau-
cracy In the first two years of our
current Great Recession, Wash-
ington added 140,000 employees.
Last year the administration
added another 80,000.
In the private sector there are
seven million fewer jobs than
there were at the start of the
Great Recession in 2007. Those
jobs aren't coming back any time
soon. Many will never come
back.
Washington prefers to tell us


Know when to be
big and when not
to belittle.


unemployment is around 9.1 per-
cent of the workforce, because
that sounds better than 14 mil-
lion unemployed and 4.4 million
out of work more than a year. The
2010 census was even more
bleak, reporting 27 million non-
working adults.
Economists and political opti-
mists said the 2007 recession was
over in 2009. They were wrong.
Now they're hinting we may be
in a double-dip recession. Wrong
again. We're still stuck in a deep
plunge Great Recession.
There's an adage that suggests
when significant numbers of
economists draw the same con-
clusion, it's likely they're all
wrong. Lately some economists
are suggesting it may take five to
10 more years for a jobs recovery
This time they may be right.
Until debts, foreclosures, war
costs, and irresponsible govern-
ment spending have been dealt
with and put behind us our short-
age of private sector jobs will
likely persist. Hopefully we're
wrong, but we don't think so.

Pogo was correct: We have met the enemy and he is us


Aren't we supposed to have
at least two political par-
ies? They go together, like
a matched set. Can anyone imag-
ine The Swamp without Pogo,
Moo without Alley Oop, Dog-
patch without Abner, a yin with-
out a yang? So how could
Americans imagine a democracy
without two parties? Our Found-
ing Fathers in their wisdom real-
ized that a one party system
sounded too much like a monar-
chy which was the kind of gov-
ernment that raised taxes on
things like tea and crumpets.
And we've already been there,
done that. Well, we couldn't have
that, not in America. So we told
our British rulers where to go.
Annoyed, they sent mercenaries
to eat our lunch. So whether we
liked it or not, we had this revo-
lution thing and caught those
Hessians with their pants down
at Trenton. But you have to give
the British credit; they kept on
marching in their red tunics dar-
ing you to shoot them down: (red
because the blood didn't show
and demoralize the men.) So we
did; if we chickened out, we'd
probably have lost our NRA fran-
chise.


Wendy
Binnie
Columnist


We finally won our independ-
ence. Initially we were a one
party system, fought for a demo-
cratic republic, and then after we
won it, later we gave it all back.
So now some think of us as a con-
stitutional monarchy, or a reli-
gious leaning oligarchy or some
combination thereof. Take 'Fast
Track'* as an example. Now,
whose idea was that? It sure as
heck wasn't the people's idea to
send our jobs to places with
strange sounding names. This
was for our own good according
to the economic prophets. What
it all meant was that now we had
the privilege of calling and get-
ting insulted in any of a dozen
languages.
Getting back to the subject at
hand. Here's an idea for a NEW
party Remember when there was
a Worker's party? Well, nobody
got behind it because it was said


it was Socialist or Commie
based, or something like that.
Until now nobody has thought of
starting an Un-Workers Party Of
course, it wasn't apropos before
because most people had decent
paying jobs. But ever since gov-
ernment said it was okay to ship
our jobs all over the world and
buy at Walmart, we've had a lot
of people out there belly-aching
about not finding jobs, decent
paying or otherwise. And what
do you want to bet, despite those
smoothed over statistics coming
from Washington, that there are
enough folks out there to make
one hell of a party? For starters
we could gather armies of non-
workers and march into Mexico
to demand that they return our
jobs. Then Washington could be
declared as a National Target
Range for all of those NRA types
and demand mandatory bull's
eyes on the outstretched palms
of our elected officials. Yes sir-
ree, that might build up a head of
steam and get us going in the
right direction.
Building an Antimissile Shield
that doesn't work and planes no-
body wants (except those sena-
tors in whose districts the part


makers reside) is rather stupid.
Let's throw those billions behind
the president who is trying his
best to help us be covered by de-
cent affordable health care?
What do we have to lose? This is
not Harry and Louise trashing
Hillary so why do the antiss' and
the 'NO' people act like it's
Thelma and Louise? To make
some more money we could
bring back the tee shirt business
to our shores. It is downright dis-
heartening to go to local stores in
larger cities and find all of those
Arabs selling tee shirts made in
China that say 'Buy USA and
stuff like that. Hear that China?


Our people are talking here, pay
attention, it could happen to you!
Why not raise the Social Security
cap? Why not enact a special
(import) tax for those un-Ameri-
cans who have their businesses
in foreign lands and bank in the
Cayman's? Why not eschew mail-
ing out S.S. checks to million-
aires? We have the money if
someone was around who is wise
enough to allocate it properly
Think - just think! It really can
be up to us!

elist and op/ed columnist, lives

time when both sides of the

That is no longer true.
What happed to the oath

amendment when they
want to intimidate "We the

Not a Christian nation
When someone attacks
me for not knowing the
facts - it is incumbent on
me to see if the complainer
knows their facts. Sadly, no.
The current attack on our
country from the "Reli-
gious Right" comes in the


form of a statement that
they want this country to
"return to the Christian
principles on which it was
founded."
However, a little re-
search into American his-
tory will show that this
statement is untrue. The
men responsible for build-
ing the foundation of the
United States had little use
for Christianity, and many
were strongly opposed to it.
They were men of The En-
lightenment, not men of
Christianity. They were
Deists who did not believe
the Bible was true.
Nine were Freemasons:
Benjamin Franklin,
William Ellery, John Han-
cock, Joseph Hewes,
William Hooper, Robert
Paine, Richard Stockton,
George Walton, William
Whipple and George Wash-
ington.
If the U.S.A. were
founded on the Judeo-
Christian religion, the Con-
stitution would clearly say
so; but it does not. When
the Founders wrote the na-
tion's Constitution, they
specified that "no religious
test shall ever be required
as a qualification to any of-
fice or public trust under
the United States." (Article
6, section 3) This provision
was radical in its day -
giving equal citizenship to
believers and non-believ-
ers alike. They wanted to
ensure that no single reli-
gion could make the claim
of being the official, na-

the Constitution does it
mention religion, except in
exclusionary terms. It
mentions "We the People."
The words "Jesus Christ,
Christianity, Bible, and

in the Constitution - not
once.
The Pledge ofAllegiance
to the Flag is under attack
by "godless atheists" (a re-
dundancy in terms, since
atheists do not believe in
God.) I have heard also that
"In God We Trust" is under
pernicious attack by these
same "Ultra Liberal -

tors" who want to finish the
job of taking God and reli-
gion out of the public

Double dog dare
Marion County commis-
sioners cannot be serious
about bringing back a two-
kill rule for dangerous
dogs before they are "clas-
sified" as "dangerous."
Every dog has its day,
Marion County wants to
give them two at the ex-
pense of possible human


death. Being in your own
backyard may cost you
your life. The dog that
killed your neighbor's pet
two weeks ago will get a
second chance in your yard
to harm your pet or your
family
The Marion County com-
missioners may be plan-
ning to pass two kills very
quietly next month. It
seems they are afraid of
lawsuits brought on by
owners of dangerous dogs.
Apparently, private
property and freedom to
enjoy your property have
nothing to do with law-
breaking dog owners who
let their dogs run. The
commissioners seem to be
representing dogs instead
of protecting the citizens of
Marion County Go ahead
commissioners and enjoy
your nightmares of limb-
less children and adults
dying an agonizing death
due to dog attacks. Shame
on all of you if you allow
the two-kill rule to come to
pass.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Dream Act
is a nightmare
The last time that a poll
was taken concerning the
Dream Act, a full 60 per-
cent of Americans were
against legalizing 15 mil-
lion workers who came
into this country illegally
These illegal immigrants
not only came into this
country illegally they are
taking work away from
Americans who are trying
to support their families
with any kind of work they
can get.
The longer our country
continues to cut its budget
by eliminating jobs, these
improper practices allow
us to look into the near fu-
ture and see education and
services disappear along
with our paychecks. Amer-
icans without jobs do not
pay income taxes to help
support our country and
only become a liability to
our local and national
economy
It seems that illegal im-
migrants have more sup-
port from our politicians
who show little regard for
American workers who are
receiving little help from
these elected officials.
Even our president seems
to be making his new prior-
ity to allow illegal immi-
grants to receive benefits
such as education and job
training over Americans to

show what a wonderful
and non-discriminating
country we are.
The real Dream Act
should be to protect our
borders and allow those
born in the United States
to realize the American
dream of providing for our-
selves and our families be-
fore we give this dream to
those born in foreign coun-
tries.

Who's carrying whom?

In his April 13 speech on
the deficit, President
Obama quoted, "I say that
at a time when the tax bur-
den on the wealthy is at its
lowest level in half a cen-
tury, the most fortunate
among us can afford to pay
a little more."
This myth is being
bandied about by liberal
politicians and the media
to confuse and manipulate
U.S. citizens.
Liberals harangue con-
servatives that the "most


fortunate among us" do not
pay their fair share of
taxes; that those who have
less income carry the
"most fortunate." This is
blatantly untrue. First,
carefully consider the fol-
lowing numbers:
The top 1 percent of
Americans, with incomes
over $380,000, earned 20
percent of income but paid
38 percent of income taxes.
The next 4 percent, with

combined.
The next 5 percent, with
incomes from $114,000 to
$159,000, earned 11 per-
cent of income, and paid 11

Americans with incomes
from $33,000 to $114,000 -
this accounts for 40 per-
cent of tax paying Ameri-
cans - earned 41 percent of

This shows that the top

redistribution of wealth
can liberals realistically
expect?
These are not embel-

numbers published by our

OUT



I do not get as many let-
ters as I used to do,
which may be due to
the Internet or to the fact
that I do not have as many
literate friends as I used to.
I still like getting a letter, as
long as it is a letter and not
a bill. Bill used to write me
but he was always asking
for money
I did get a letter this past


week. It was unexpected
but it was from a family
member. Good old Uncle
Sam sent me an epistle this
past week. I was anxious to
see how he was getting
along. I hear all these ru-
mors, you know, but it is
good to hear straight from
the donkey's mouth.
When I opened the letter
it was not a personal letter.
It was addressed to me, all
right, and it had to do with
personal matters, of a sort.
But he was not chatting
about what he was up to
these days. Rather, it was a
request for money
It seems that way back in
the year of our Lord 2003,
there was a mix-up in my
tax return and somehow I
still owed the IRS money
My attitude was, let by-
gones be bygones. That is
ancient history Let us just
get along.

ber on the letter inviting me to
call. It was right after lunch so I
thought why not get this over with
and get on with the rest of my life.
I hummed a little tune as I dialed
the number and then waited for it
to ring.
I finally got an automated serv-
ice and was asked to press a cer-
tain number if I wanted to
continue in English. My English is
not that good and in high school, I
got a D-plus in my senior year. But
as it is the best language I know, I
opted for English.
For some reason I pressed the
wrong number and got something
that sounded a little bit like Span-
ish. My Spanish is not good, actu-
ally not at all, I had no idea what
they were saying.
I really hate to hang up on peo-
ple while they are talking but I fi-
nally hung up and re-dialed the
number.
I do not want to complain, but I
hate punching a number for this
and punching numbers for that
and finally getting someone on the
other end of the line that is not a
real person but they're telling me


what to do. Who do they think they
are? My wife?
After several tries and punching
more numbers, I finally got back to
the automated system. Through no
skill of my own, I finally punched
the right numbers and actually got
a live person. Now, I thought to
myself, I will get this taken care of,
and that will be that.
The gentleman on the other end
of the line was none other than a
friendly IRS person. After ex-
changing a few pleasantries, we fi-
nally got down to business. I finally
was able to ask what all of the pa-
perwork meant that I received.
He began what turned out to be
a very long spiel and it sounded
somewhat similar to my high
school teacher's explanation of
Einstein's theory of relativity I
could not relate to my high school
teacher's explanation anymore
than I could relate to what my IRS
man was talking about on the
other end of the phone. If what he
was talking about was in any way
relative to my well-being, I had no
way of knowing.
When he was finished with his


long, drawn-out explanation all I
could say was, "Huh?" He then
proceeded to go through the whole
process again, ad nauseam. After
the second time of explaining
what these taxes were, I knew less
about it then after the first time of
explaining it. I am beginning to
see a conspiracy here.
"Exactly why do I owe these
taxes?" Obviously, he thought I
said, "Where do you buy your
axes?" And began talking in Chi-
nese, or so it sounded like Chi-
nese. When he was finished, I
could not remember why I called
him in the first place.
Finally, in somewhat of a des-
perate mood, I asked him how
much I owed. As it turned out, I
owed the IRS $363.94. Why I owed
that much, I still have not figured
out. I must say good old Uncle Sam
knows what he is doing when he
hires people to man the IRS
phone lines who know Chinese.
The only thing I could say was,
"The check is in the mail." He did
mention something about putting
a lien on my bank account. Ha ha!
There is barely enough money in

Taking a trip down the alley with housing experiences


Dick

PUN


W while there are
some signs that we
are recovering
from the great recession,
we are now experiencing a
downturn. Therefore,
house values are still in the
cellar Those heavy in-
vestors who once were flip-
ping houses are now
flipping burgers. Our trip
down Pun Alley takes us to
some housing experiences.
Swamped with good luck
A couple of months ago
Tony entered a contest and
won a few acres of low land
near the Everglades. Right
after that he won a $950,000
house, so naturally he built
it on his new land.
Just after he moved
there, as he sat on the
porch watching the rain
and listening to the thun-
der, it all started to sink in.
Rental perils
A property manager of a
single family residence
was showing a unit to
prospective tenants and
asked the usual questions:
"Professionally em-
ployed?"
"We're a military family,"
the wife answered.
"Children?"
"Yes, nine and twelve,"
she said proudly
"Animals?"
"Oh, no," she said
earnestly "They're very
well behaved."
Sound familiar?
Homeowner: "That's the
lousiest construction I've
ever seen! Is that because
you're ignorant or apa-
thetic?"
Contractor: "Huh? I don't
know what you mean."
Homeowner: "Do you
know the difference be-
tween ignorance and apa-
thy?"
Contractor: "No, but who
cares?"
Dead sale
"You must also remem-
ber," said the real estate
salesman, "that the death
rate in this community is
the lowest in the state."
"I can believe that," said
the potential buyer. "I

If you think no one cares
you're alive, miss a couple
of house payments.
A maintenance-free
house is one where there
hasn't been any mainte-
nance in the last 10 years.
My real estate agent sold
me a two-story house -
one story before the sale,
another after.
If you want to write
something that has a
chance of living on forever,
sign a mortgage.
"Yes, she's married to a
real estate agent and a
good, honest fellow, too."
"My gracious! Bigamy?"
The family had to move
into a little two-room kitch-
enette apartment and had
no room for complaint.

Watered-down reading
A Williston couple has a
creek that runs across
their property The wife
spends most of her time
working on the creek
banks, planting flowers,
fertilizing, and then keep-
ing the banks clean, be-
cause if there's anything
she likes, it's to weed a
good brook Of course, she
also reads that popular
monthly magazine, Weed-
ers' Digest.
Cut that out!
A policeman bought a
house with a yard that was
in terrible shape, full of
weeds, and rocks. But in no
time he had it healthy,
green and beautifully man-


icured.
His neighbors got to-
gether and cited him for
restoring lawn order.
Bridge partners?
A San Francisco man,
gambling like mad in the
housing market and losing
everything when the mar-
ket collapsed, arrived
home one evening quite
desperate. His wife, who
knew nothing about his
failures, said, "Will itbe all
right if I go out this
evening? This is my bridge
night."
"If you wait a minute,"
the husband said, "I'll go
with you and we'll jump to-
gether."

town. They thought this
had to be a misprint, but
called anyway The lady
who answered the phone
said that the $1,000 price
was not a misprint.
The couple drove to the
house and found the most
beautiful house on the
block. Inside, the house
was huge and it had mar-
ble imported from Italy
and a chandelier imported
from France.
The couple said, "This is
the most beautiful house
we had ever seen, what's
the catch?"
The lady assured the


couple there was no catch.
She said, "The house is
completely paid for, and
not a penny is owed against
it. Last week I got a call
from my husband. He in-
formed me he is leaving me
for his secretary He then
told me I could have every-
thing we own as long as he
could have the proceeds
off the sale of the house. I
agreed and he asked me if I
could sell the house while
he and his new girlfriend
hung out in the
Caribbean."
Dick and his wife Jane

A crime story that's hard to put down


BOOK



Recently, I
overlooked pa
ing behind a t
on my bookshE
true story turr
the consumer


book with everything a re-
laxing vacationer could ask
for - mob hits, a witness
protection program, a cor-
rupt Chicago judicial sys-
tem and an honest but
hapless eyewitness whose
life is ruined because he
lived by the simple creed:
Pat "I saw what I saw."
Wellington In 1972, 25-year-old Bob
Lowe added breeding
watch dogs to his two regu-
lar McJobs because he saw
his Taylor Street neighbor-
hood near Chicago's West
End deteriorating rapidly,
and thought people might
be looking for protection.
found an One prospect was Billy
perback hid- Logan, who'd been feeling
;hick volume uneasy of late (and with
elf. This 2001 good reason as it turned
ned out to be out). So on the night of
nate beach Sept. 27, Lowe walked one


of his dogs, a German shep-
herd named "Ginger," to
Logan's house to catch him
before he headed off to his
night job. He saw Logan
walking toward his car and
waved to him, but Billy did-
n't see him.
"And then it all began, a
series of sights and sounds
that would stay with Bob
forever. It commenced with
the bright flash of head-
lights behind him.
The harsh roar of a
revving engine. The dark
car moved swiftly past him
and jerked to a halt. A gun
barrel slid out of the car
window." A voice would
shout to Billy and then
shots were fired. Billy col-
lapsed dying. And Bob
Lowe was facing Harry
Aleman, the shooter and a


longtime mob enforcer.
"When he died on the front
lawn of his sister's house,
Billy Logan became a
member of the exclusive, if
unfortunate, club. He was
Chicago's 1,015th mob
killing."
At the police station,
Bob's older and wiser fa-
ther Joe begged him not to
get involved. But Lowe's
standard reply was, "I saw
what I saw"
After years in the wit-
ness protection program,
Bob finally faces Harry
Aleman in court. In an in-
furiating trial the defense
tears Lowe to shreds,
painting him as a lowlife.
Incredibly, Harry walks
and Bob Lowe descends
into a world of drugs, booze
and petty crime.


He is just putting his life
back together when a reve-
lation that doesn't attach to
double jeopardy puts
Harry on trial once again.


And Good Samaritan Bob
Lowe is forced to testify
This is a wonderfully in-
sightful crime story that's
hard to put down.

Safe Cosmetic Act never got out of committee


From E - The Environ-
mental Magazine
Dear EarthTalk: Can you
explain the 2010 Safe Cos-
metics Act? What does it
purport to do and has it
been signed into law? -
Megan Wilson, Austin, TX
The Safe Cosmetics Act
was introduced in the U.S.
House of Representatives
in July 2010 by Democrats
Jan Schakowsky of Illinois,
Ed Markey of Massachu-
setts and Tammy Baldwin
of Wisconsin. But it never
got past committee reviews
and thus never came up for
a vote.
The proposed bill aimed


EARTH


to ensure that all personal
care products for sale in
the U.S. would be free of
harmful ingredients and
that all ingredients would
be fully disclosed. The bill
would've given the U.S.
Food and Drug Adminis-
tration (FDA) the authority
to prohibit the use of cer-
tain ingredients, including
carcinogens and reproduc-
tive and developmental
toxins, to recall products
that fail to meet safety
standards, and to require


product labels to name
each ingredient.
The FDA has only lim-
ited say in what cosmetics
manufacturers can and
cannot put into their prod-
ucts. And the cosmetics in-
dustry has essentially been
regulating itself for some
three decades, and would
like to keep it that way In
response to failed efforts in
the 1970s to force the FDA
to regulate cosmetics more
like drugs- with required
pre-market safety assess-
ments - the industry de-
cided to take matters into
its own hands, creating the
Cosmetics Industry Re-


view Panel to judge the
safety of various ingredi-
ents.
Critics argue that self-
regulation isn't appropri-
ate for an industry trading
in potentially carcinogenic
products. "It's a panel
funded by the trade associ-
ation," Stacy Malkan of the
non-profit Campaign for
Safe Cosmetics told the
Washington, DC-based Cor-
porate Crime Reporter.
"For 30 years that they
have been in operation,
they have only looked at
about 13 percent of the
chemicals in cosmetics.
They do cursory reviews.


They look mostly for short
term health effects. It's a
panel of mostly dermatolo-
gists, not toxicologists. So,
they don't have the expert-
ise to be looking at long-
term health effects like
cancer"
Another non-profit, the
Environmental Working
Group (EWG), has identi-
fied upwards of 100 differ-
ent products that passed
Cosmetics Industry Re-
view Panel safety assess-
ments despite obvious
violations of that body's
own guidelines. According
to EWG's research, 22 per-
cent of all personal care

, I Family Care
-Li - Specialists

a member of OCALA HEALTH SYSTEM


June 5, 2011

Open Letter to the Community

Over the last several weeks, there has been a good deal of information shared in the
community regarding the affiliation of Family Care Specialists (FCS) with Ocala Health
System. As medical director, I want to clarify precisely why my colleagues and I chose to
become a part of Ocala Health late last year. Today, after six months of our affiliation, we
are proud to be contributing to its position as the leading healthcare provider for the
residents of greater Marion County.

We are affiliated with Ocala Health because of the quality of care that is consistently
delivered at every touch point throughout the system. It's that simple. While my fellow
physicians and I observe first-hand the exceptional treatment our patients are receiving at
Ocala Regional Medical Center and West Marion Community Hospital, it is reassuring to
know that publicly reported data available on the Hospital Compare website
(www.hospitalcompare.hhs.gov) is reflecting that high caliber of care.

According to the most recent Hospital Compare Survey of Patients' Hospital Experiences (3Q09
- 2Q10), Ocala Regional Medical Center and West Marion Community Hospital lead in nine out
of ten categories that measure patient experience according to key quality topics. From how
well nurses and doctors communicate, to pain management and room cleanliness, to quietness
at night and responsiveness of staff, patients rank Ocala Health number one.

In addition, the survey results further strengthen my belief that Ocala Health is the region's
leading healthcare provider for more complex conditions including pneumonia, heart failure,
heart attack, chest pain, and surgical care. In fact, Ocala Health surpasses averages
reported statewide and nationally.

At Family Care Specialists, we recommend with confidence the services of Ocala Regional
Medical Center and West Marion Community Hospital. Quality care was a driving force in
our efforts initially to join Ocala Health and continues to be today, as we work together in
treating patients and their families.

I encourage you to take a moment to visit the Hospital Compare website. Review the core
measure and patient satisfaction scores for area hospitals as reported by the Centers for
Medicaid and Medicare Services. You do have choices. Publicly reported information like
this can help you as a patient and consumer make the most informed decisions about
healthcare for you and your loved ones.

Yours in good health,



Sidney E. Clevinger, MD
Medical Director

products on store shelves
today - including chil-
dren's products - may con-
tain a cancer-causing
ingredient (1,4-Dioxane),
while some 60 percent of
sunscreens contain oxy-
benzone, a potential hor-
mone disruptor.
In response to the gov-
ernment not requiring cos-
metics manufacturers to be
more responsible, EWG
launched the Skin Deep
website, an easy-to-use,
keyword-searchable data-
base of cosmetics and their
health risks and environ-
mental footprints. The idea
behind the website is to let
users decide for them-
selves which cosmetics to
purchase; EWG hopes that
making this information
freely available and easy-
to-access will help drive
demand for safer products.
Supporters of the Safe
Cosmetics Act were hope-
ful that passage of their bill
would usher in a new era of
more rigorous mandatory
screening of cosmetics
here at home, and leader-
ship in a global market-
place hungry for safer,
greener products. Advo-
cates for safe cosmetics
hope that lawmakers will
muster the resolve to rein-
troduce the bill, or another
like it, in the current or
some future session of Con-
gress.

OTOW loses a valued member of the community


ELOISE HOLLYFIELD
ejh2025@yahoo. corn

A valued member lost
and an opportunity to
serve as a volunteer high-
light this week's activities
at OTOW
OTOW Lions Club
OTOW Lions Club mem-
bers mourn the loss of one
of their own. Maryann B.
Johnson, 68, died on June
13, 2011 at the Legacy Hos-
pice House. The family re-
ceived friends at the
Roberts Downtown Chapel
on June 15, followed by a


OTOW


memorial service. The
service was a celebration
of Maryann's life. A post-
memorial service gather-
ing of Lions Club members
was held in Candler Hills.
Donations in lieu of flow-
ers can still be made to
Hospice of Marion County
in memory of Maryann.
Maryann was born in
Bronx, New York, and
moved to Ocala six years


ago from Wellington.
Maryann retired from IBM
as a paralegal. Hobbies in-
cluded sewing and paint-
ing.
Maryann was the Treas-
urer of the OTOW Lions
Club, but she always had a
willing hand to lend to the
multitude of projects in
which other members
were involved. She was
also a member of the
Pickle Ball Club, and she
loved to play dominos.
Maryann is survived by
her devoted husband of 36
years, John W Johnson of


Ocala, Florida, daughter
Joanna Leigh Mitchell of
Simpsonville, S.C., son
James B. Johnson of Semi-
nole, Fl, and sons Joseph
Johnson and John M. John-
son of Dallas, Texas. Addi-
tionally, Maryann is
survived by her brother
Joseph Piconcelli of
Wellington, and eight
grandchildren.

Community Blood Centers
at On Top of the World for


more than 10 years. He
states that it has been very
rewarding to halve helped
LifeSouth and to have met

that give to those in need.
Ed feels it is time for him
to step down as a volunteer


for LifeSouth Community
Blood Centers, and he is
assisting in finding a re-
placement for him. If inter-
ested in volunteering,

Friday, June 24, 2011 - 21


Leisure






ARIES (March 21 to April
19) A heads-up alert to all
free-spirited Ewes and
Rams: Be wary of a deal that
could result in compromis-
ing your independence.
Check every detail before
making a commitment
TAURUS (April 20 to May
20) New facts emerge that
help put an irksome work-
place situation in perspec-
tive. Meanwhile, pay more
attention to a family mem-
ber who needs your wisdom
and strength.
GEMINI (May 21 to June
20) A slight setback in plans
is nothing to worry about.
Use this delay to deal with a
number of matters you
might have ignored for too
long. Expect news from
someone in your past.
CANCER (June 21 to July
22) You're entering a period
of stability. Use it to
straighten out any outstand-
ing problems related to a
very personal situation.
Also, pay closer attention to
financial matters.
LEO (July 23 toAug. 22)As
much as you love being a so-
cial Lion, you might well
benefit from staying out of
the spotlight for a while. You
need time to reflect on some
upcoming decisions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept
22) A difficult family situa-
tion improves, thanks to
your timely intervention.
You can now start to focus
more of your attention on
preparing for a possible ca-
reer change.
LIBRA (Sept 23 to Oct 22)
An on-the-job change works
to your benefit by offering
new opportunities. It's up to
you to check them out.
Meanwhile, a stalled roman-
tic situation starts up again.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 to Nov.
21) That flare-up of Scorpian
temperament cools down,
leaving you more receptive
to suggestions about
changes that might need to
be made in your personal
life.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to
Dec. 21) An unusual period
of indecisiveness is a mite
frustrating. But things soon
clear up, allowing the sage
Sagittarian to make those
wise pronouncements again.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to
Jan. 19) You might feel that
you know best, but it's not a
good idea at this time to try
to force your opinions on
others. Best advice: Inspire
change by example, not by
intimidation.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to
Feb. 18) Some setbacks
could affect your plans to
fortify your financial situa-
tion. But things start moving
again by early next week.
Meanwhile, enjoy your
resurgent social life.
PISCES (Feb. 19 to March
20) Show that often-hidden
steely spine of yours as you
once again stand up to an
emotional bully. You've got
the strength to do it, espe-
cially as friends rally to your
side.
BORN THIS WEEK: Your
ruling planet, Mercury, en-
dows you with a gift for writ-
ing. Have you considered
penning the world's greatest
novel?

Way Off Broadway
At Way Off Broadway's
June 13 meeting the entire
cast for "In St Louis At The
Fair" were introduced in
the roles they will play to
our membership.
The directors described
their overall plan for the
production, i.e., scenery,
props and costumes which
will greatly enhance what
the actors, singers and
dancers will bring to the
play. The musical directors
and choreographer out-
lined the song and dance
routines that will be fea-
tured when full scale re-
hearsals commence in late
August. The other main
topic of discussion was the
coordinated plan of Way
Off Broadway and Little
Theatre's "Cavalcade of
Plays" which will be our
theme in the 4th of July
cart parade. The parade
watchers are in for a real
treat!! It was decided to
forgo a July meeting be-
cause so many members
will be vacationing. Our
next meeting will be on
Monday, Aug. 8, at 7 p.m. in


the Palm Grove Club. All of
you out there yearning to
be in the floodlights, come
join us. We appreciate new
people checking us out.

real hot and humid
weather will soon be upon
us. Any guest or visitor in-
terested in playing tennis
and who is not on a team
should come down to the
courts on Tuesday and
Thursday between the
hours of 5 and 7 p.m. Just
have fun hitting the ball
around.
Yes, the rumor is true;
our tennis facilitator has
returned. We understand
that due to his conduct in
Hungary he thought it
would be good idea to re-
turn a month early to re-
cover. A wise move on his
part. We hope to see him on
the courts soon. We wish
Nick a speedy recovery
from his knee operation.
There is plenty of ice al-
ways in the auditorium ice
machine, so please feel
free while waiting to get on
the courts to fill the ice
chest. We assure you that
your fellow tennis players
will appreciate it. Thanks
and have a great tennis
summer.
Royal Oaks Womens' 18
Hole Golf
On Tuesday, June 14, we
played our Flag Tourna-
ment in honor of Flag Day


Call Today for Appointment: 840-7077 so habla
VISA A M 8750 SW Hwy 200, Suite 101 * Ocala Espa0oI
Up to 18 Months No Interest Payment Plans Red Roof Building * Codes D0150, D0330, D1110, D9310


Each player was given 72
strokes (course par) plus
her handicap. In other
words, if a person had a 20
handicap, she would be
given 92 strokes. At the
spot on the course where
you hit that number shot,
you would plant your flag
into the grass. If your game
was not your best that day,
your flag might be left on
the 17th fairway, or some-
where before the 18th
green. If you were playing
well, your flag might make
it back to the 1st or 2nd
hole!
The winners were: 1st
place - Jan Tennant, 2nd
place - Diana Love, 3rd
place - Kathy Kollar, 4th
place - Pat Blackburn, 5th
place - Lynn Houghton, 6th
place - Bea Terry, 7th place
- Patty Dougherty, 8th place
- tie between Carol Allison
and J.T LeMasters. "Clos-
est to the Pin" was Patty
Dougherty
Royal Oaks Men's Golf
The game for Friday,
June 17, was total points.
The weather didn't cooper-
ate, with high tempera-
tures and higher humidity.
However, 42 brave souls
participated, and a fine
time was had by all. Two
teams tied for first with a
total of 80 points each -
Ron Catapano, Londe Bra-
cale, Don Aubrey, Pat Schi-
avo and the team of Emmet
Dowling, Sam Owens, Dick
Rizzo, and Mike Madill.
One point behind with a 79
were Hal Loomis, Jim
Kennedy, and Bob Gildea.
Closest to the pin were
Jack Edwards, Bill Staiger,


Mike Madill, and Chuck
Engel.
Don't forget the upcom-
ing Red, White and Blue
Tournament. The sign up
sheet is located in the no-
tice area.
Carol Ann's Corner
Just want you to know
that I finally decided what
to rename the cat formerly
known as Katie Kitty His
new name is "Mr. Cody"
He's named after an es-
teemed deceased member
of the family, a very special
cat of my sister's named
Cody We decided to put
"Mr." in front of his name
to distinguish him from his
predecessor and as a sort
of apology for not recogniz-
ing his true gender earlier.
Mr. Cody is just fine after
his encounters with hair-
balls, and the vet, and is
busy thinking up subjects)

ance as a columnist.

Fourth of July parade scheduled


Moose lodge activities


HARRY CHAMBERS
Special to the Citizen

Did you know that there will
be a parade July 4 beginning at
9 a.m.? Yes, many of our resi-
dents will be participating and
you too are asked to join in on
the fun. The parade partici-
pants are asked to arrive at the
Oasis no later than 8:45 a.m. If
you cannot participate, please
step outside and help those
who parade by your home to
celebrate the birthday of our
beautiful and blessed nation.
Wave your flags, Palm Cay,
and be a part of all the festivi-
ties that are arranged for you.
More information can be
had by contacting Margret Be-
lieu.
Fishing trip
Palm Cay residents, get
ready to vote! "Vote for what,"
you ask.
A deep sea fishing trip has
been organized for residents
who wish to go and join in on
the fun on Saturday, June 25. A


PALM


total of eight residents signed
up for the trip (two ladies and
six gentlemen). It has been
said that the two ladies will
out-fish and catch the biggest
fish of the day
Gentlemen, we cannot allow
this to happen. Though all six
gentlemen refuse to have
names published in the event
that they lose the battle for the
catch of the biggest fish, let us
simply be confident that we
outnumber the ladies.
What evens the odds for this
event? The ladies have valu-
able experience. Let me tell
you what qualifies that state-
ment. First of our two ladies is
Diane Goodpastor. She plans
on catching the biggest fish be-
cause she loves being active
"early" in the morning, and as
our Palm Cay breakfast chair-
person, Diane sets up 16 tables


and has wonderful volunteers
all assigned before most of us
are even awake. Then she
"fishes" her way around dur-
ing the Saturday morning
breakfast to ensure everyone
has a good time and enough to
eat.
Out next lady is none other
than Gigi Derolf, Palm Cay's
line dance instructor. You have
read about this young Marine
veteran before. In addition to
teaching her line dancing
skills to many of our residents,
she and her dance team enter-
tain in many Ocala communi-
ties.
Her non-tiring experience of
charging beaches and kicking
sharks out of her way, as a for-
mer Marine, make this lady a
creditable challenge for any
fishing event.
So my fellow neighbors and
residents, trust that we "gen-
tlemen" will prevail in our
very first deep sea fishing trip.
And we need your vote of con-
fidence.

Volunteer Recognition
Award
Mary and Fred Elbi were
recognized at the June 7
Homeowner Forum for
their valuable contribu-
tions to the Association of
Marion Landing Home-
owners. They have di-
rected numerous events,
participated in the Senior
Games, and have volun-
teered for various activi-
ties such as breakfasts, the
SARA team and Patrol.
Fred was also influential in
bringing Pickle Ball to the
Community A framed Vol-
unteer Recognition Certifi-
cate was presented to Mary
and Fred by Connie Rowe,


the Board's secretary; and
an engraved plaque with
their names will join the
132 other volunteers recog-
nized by the Community
since 2001, all of which are
posted in the Lifestyle Cen-
ter
Tai chi for Health
The ancient art ofTai chi
uses gentle flowing move-
ments to reduce the stress
of today's busy lifestyles
and improve health. Scien-
tific studies show that Tai
chi improves and possibly
prevents chronic condi-
tions such as arthritis,
heart disease and diabetes.
In addition, it improves
balance, immunity and re- .r -'.'
duces stress. These bene-
fits are probably the
reason why so many resi-
dents signed up for the free
introductory class offered

the Lifestyle Center.
Tai chi is a noncompeti-
tive, self-paced system of
gentle physical exercise
and stretching. To do Tai
chi, you perform a series of
postures or movements in a
slow, graceful manner.
Each posture flows into the
next without pause, ensur-
ing that your body is in con-
stant motion. Because Tai
chi is low impact, it maybe
especially suitable for the
older adult who otherwise
may not exercise. In fact, a
recent study published in
the Journal of Rheumatol-
ogy (Sept. 2003) found that
Tai chi classes "can pro-
vide large and sustained
improvements in physical
function for older, seden-
tary people with chronic
osteoarthritis of the knee
or hip," as well as "signifi-
cant improvement in pain
and physical function."
Weekly Tai chi classes
led by Mary Pat are held on
Wednesday at 11 a.m. in
the Lifestyle Center. Resi-
dents may sign up for each
class individually at $5
each or purchase a coupon
of six sessions for $25.
Please check the flyer on
the Activities Wall of the
Lifestyle Center for more
information and to add
your name to the sign-up
sheet.
Tubing the Ichetucknee
What better way to spend
a hot, sunny day than a
"float" down the Ichetuck-
nee River. That's exactly


what a group of eight Mar-
ion Landing residents did
on Thursday, June 9. "It's
an annual trip, and it's al-
ways a lot of fun," said Car-
olyn Salzlein, who
organized the trip. "We tied
our tubes together and
made our way down the
river - even through the
natural obstacles." Lo-
cated in Ichetucknee
Springs State Park, the
crystalline Ichetucknee
River flows six miles
through shaded hammocks
and wetlands before it
joins the Santa Fe River.
From the end of May until
early September, tubing
down the river is the pre-
mier activity in the area.
You can take a 45 minute
float, a 1.5 hour float or a
three-hour float. In addi-
tion to tubing, visitors can
enjoy picnicking, snorkel-
ing, canoeing, swimming,
hiking, and wildlife view-
ing. More information on
Florida's parks and activi-
ties is available at
www.floridastateparks.co
m. When activities and day
trips such as this one are
organized in Marion Land-
ing, a flyer is posted on a
clipboard on the Activities
Wall in the Lifestyle Center
so residents can sign up
and join in on the fun.
Order your logo shirts
Orders will be taken for
T's and polo's embroidered
with the Marion Landing
logo after the Tuesday So-
cials and after the July 7
Homeowner Forum. Wind-
breakers, caps and visors
are also available. Stop by
