Hammett-Bowen:

top AYP grades

With elementary and middle school
grades released last week, Marion County
Public Schools maintained its district-wide
"B" grade despite higher accountability
standards.
Marion County scored 510 points of 525
needed to score an "A"
This is the fifth year in a row Marion
County has earned a "B."
Last year, the district missed the "A' mark
by just 11 points and by just one point in
2008 and 2009. Marion County last earned
an "A' in 2006.
Districts receive points from Florida's
Department of Education for students
meeting high FCAT standards in reading,
math, writing, and science. The state grad-
ing formula also awards points for students
making learning gains in reading and math,
along with credit for the lowest quartile (25
percent) of students making learning gains.
The percentage of students tested is also
considered.
Three elementary schools made AYP, or
Adequate Yearly Progress, under "No Child
Left Behind." These schools met 100 per-
cent of all criteria - Dr. N.H. Jones, Ham-
mett Bowen, and Madison Street Academy
Only 10 percent of school statewide made
AYP

Budget


hearings


to start

On a typical day, 11,000 cus-
tomers visit a Marion County Solid
Waste facility, drivers traverse
2,800 plus miles of Marion County
maintained roadways and nearly
30,000 residents receive water
through Marion County Utilities.
While county services such as
these are all-around us, residents
don't often have the opportunity to
take a front seat view of the budg-
ets that these departments oper-
ate from. Come mid-July, however,
residents will have a chance to
take a look inside the budgets that
run the various county services.
The Marion County Board of
County Commissioners holds
workshops each summer to review
and adjust departmental and con-
stitutional office budgets for the
upcoming budget year. Over the
course of a week and a half this
July, commissioners will meet
with and hear from every entity
that receives county funding from
traditional county departments to
the Clerk of the Court, Economic
Development Coalition and The
Centers.
This year's first week of budget
talks will kick off on Monday, July
11, and run through Friday, July
15. Sessions resume the following
week on Wednesday, July 20, and
will conclude on Thursday, July 21.
Sessions begin at 9 a.m. in the
McPherson Governmental Com-
plex Auditorium (601 S.E. 25th
Ave., Ocala) and are scheduled to
end at 5 p.m. After the workshop
series has concluded, commis-

will evoke some
ervous laughter
from Oldss" - those over
70 - because the author's
dark vision of the future
rings all too true. When the
novel opens the national
debt has already surpassed
the national gross product.
The good news is that both
cancer and MS have been
cured.
But the downside of this
medical breakthrough is
that Oldss" are living
longer and longer and hog-
ging the dwindling na-
tional resources. And with
a plethora of rejuvenating
drugs, the Oldss" are sprier
and happier than ever.
None of this sits well with
the young people who are
picking up the tab and liv-
ing far below the geriatric
standards.

And that's before a 9.1
earthquake levels Los An-
geles. When President
Matthew Bernstein prom-
ises that after the rebuild-
ing Los Angeles' best days
lie ahead, his nose doesn't
grow longer but he knows
he's lying. America is
broke.
Militia-type groups of
young terrorists are spring-
ing up, determined to dec-
imate the older population.
Even President Bernstein
confesses to a few insiders
that longevity has perhaps
gone too far and he prom-
ises his youthful con-
stituents that he'll try to
give them a fairer share.
Meanwhile, with mil-
lions of homeless roaming
the wasteland of LA, Bern-
stein has no choice but to
dispatch his comely Secre-
tary of the Treasury, Su-
sanna Colbert, to China to
beg for help.
The Chinese response is
terse and immediate: no

pit and we no longer feel
comfortable feeding it."
Still, another arrangement

Rep. Perry introduced

Four of those bills have

The taxpayer Bill of
Rights, modeled after the
Arizona bill, will be on the
ballot in the general elec-
tion.
Additionally, thirty-one
out of thirty-four bills ad-
dressing pro-business

passed.
Rep. Perry praised Gov
Rick Scott for his continu-
ing efforts to bring new
business to Florida.
He cited employment re-
ports showing that the rate
of unemployment has been
going down for five consec-
utive months.
Although Perry is opti-
mistic about the future, he
predicts next year will be a
difficult one, especially in
the area of social issues.
He affirmed that this coun-
try was established as a
covenant with God and de-
votion to strong Christian
values, such as domestic
virtue, family, and commu-
nity
With nearly 50 percent of
children being born out of

as single parents, and men
without roots, the tradi-
tional family continues to

ety.
Rep. Perry said we are in

ing and motivating citizens

Hitting the right notes in Pun Alley


Dick
Frank


PUN



It started out as an air-
plane hangar at the
original Ocala airport.
For years it was an aban-
doned building. Then it
was remodeled into a
"home and garden center"
business. Now it is a music
venue for various famous
musical performers.
Shows at OTOW and Sil-
ver Springs add to the
music permeating our
area. It's no surprise that
some musical notes have
found their way to Pun
Alley
The Strauss family
The Strauss family fa-
ther and his son Andrew
were listening to some
classical music on the
radio.
When the announcer
mentioned that Oscar
Strauss wrote the piece,
Andrew asked if he was re-
lated to Johann.
The father said yes and
added that there were
quite a few other com-


posers of note in the
Strauss family as well. He
rattled off the names of Jo-
hann Jr., Eduard, Richard
and Josef.
The suddenly enlight-
ened Andrew replied,
"Hmmm, It must have
come from their genes."
The dad quickly re-
sponded, "No, The genes
came from Levi Strauss.
He wasn't into music. He
was just an old sew & sew,
but I believe he was in-
volved with a Singer."
Of course most of the
Strauss family lived in Aus-
tria but shortly after WWII,
Johann Jr. moved to Ger-
many to help rebuild the
infrastructure. He was the
creator of the Berlin Waltz
and also worked for a dry
cleaner that taught him to
iron curtains.
Winded
A man went to the doctor
because had pneumonia.
After an examination, the
doctor said, "You are a mu-
sician, I think, and play a
wind instrument?"
"Yes."
"That explains every-
thing. There's a distinct
straining of the lungs, and
the larynx is inflamed as
though by some abnormal
pressure. What instrument
do you play?"
"The accordion."
Mistaken identity
Two musicians were
walking down the street
when one said to the other,
"Who was that piccolo I
saw you out with last
night?"
The other replied, "That


was no piccolo, that was my
fife."
Half notes
She was continually
breaking into song much to
the dismay of others who
wished she would find the
key
"My daughter has
arranged a little piece for
the piano."
"Good! It's about time we
had a little peace."
If you are not afraid to
face the music, you may get
to lead the band some day
In 1896 the first music
patent was granted. The
man who received it said
he got it for a song.
Musicians need a leader
because they don't know
how to conduct them-
selves.
Some tine ago Lady Gaga
canceled her concert in
Paris because of the con-
tinued rioting there. As a
result, decent music lovers
started riots in major cities
across the world.
Rock music is frequently
played by those who are
stoned.
Listening to background
music while on hold made
him long for a chord-less
phone.
A guitarist was so
Baroque, he robbed a
music store and ran off
with the lute.
Sometimes jazz musi-
cians clothes wear out, and
then it's ragtime.
Telephony
A burglar broke into a
telephone products ware-
house and filled his bags
with various telephones


when he heard police
sirens getting near. He fled
to a nearby music hall
where a concert was going
on and hid among the horn
sections.
The police wandered
through, but were unable
to find him among the mu-
sicians. He fit right in, hav-
ing those sacks o' phones.
Do it
A down and out musician
was playing his harmonica
in the middle of a busy
shopping mall. Striding
over, a policeman asked,
"May I please see your per-
mit?"
"I don't have one," con-
fessed the musician.
"In that case, you'll have
to accompany me."
"Splendid!" exclaimed
the musician. "What shall
we sing?"
Wild Goose Chase
The area near the mouth
of the Suwannee River,
now a National Wildlife
Refuge, once had thou-
sands of wild geese. Euro-
pean demand for goose
feathers led to the killing of
the geese and shipping
their feathers from wharfs
on the river.
One dockworker put the
feathers in 100-pound bags.
When asked, "What do you
do for a living?" he replied,
"I weigh down upon the
Swannee River!"
Time for me to go on a
wild goose chase to see
what I can pack into the
Alley next time.

Dick and his wife Jane
live in Oak Run.

sioners will adopt a pro-
posed maximum millage
rate.
The current fiscal year's
countywide millage rate is
3.89, a level slightly lower
than the 2009-10 rate of 3.9
mills. A millage rate of 3.89
equates to $3.89 for each
$1,000 of taxable property
values, or $389 for a home
with a taxable value of
$100,000. The county's $574
million current fiscal year
budget (from all revenue
sources), pays for various
public services, including
Fire Rescue, EMS, roads,
Growth Management, li-
braries, Parks and Recre-
ation and many other
services. This money also
pays for indigent health
care and the local judicial
system as well as Marion
County's five constitutional
offices: the Sheriff's Office,
Clerk of the Court, Prop-
erty Appraiser, Supervisor
of Elections and Tax Col-

tips from Marion County
Extension Service to help
keep your yard in tip-top
shape.
De-stress your grass

D a v i d the health of your lawn by
H o I m e s watching for and reducing
stressors on your grass.

places added stressors on
your grass and impairs root
development; the first cold
snap can severely damage
or kill such a lawn. Let St.
Augustine and Bahia grass
grow to four inches and cut
to three. Let Zoysia grass
grow to three inches and
cut to two.
Soil type and conditions
are also critical elements
that help determine the
health of your lawn. Sandy,
well-drained soils are
prevalent in central
Florida, and are prone to
drying out quickly, making
lawns especially suscepti-
ble to dry spells. Soil sur-
rounding homes is often
compacted by heavy equip-
ment during construction
and can affect grass growth
for years. Plants need oxy-
gen and compacted soil
has little pore space,
meaning little oxygen. You
may need to use an aerator
(a garden tool that perfo-


rates the ground) to en-
hance oxygen content.
Not too late for flowers
Want to add fancy flora to
your yard? Attract butter-
flies? Edge boring beds
and borders with splashes
of color? It's not too late!
Though March through
May is the usual time to
plant summer annuals in
central Florida, try this
short list of plants that can
still thrive through late
summer if planted soon.
Vinca: Flowers: white,
purple, pink and lavender.
Height: one to two feet.
Space: about two feet
apart in well-drained soil.
Will re-seed and come
back year after year.
Penta: Flowers: red,
pink, lavender, white and
purple.
Height: two to three feet.
Space: a few feet apart.
Attracts butterflies.
Gerbera daisy
Flowers: white, red, or-


ange, yellow, salmon and
pink.
Height: six inches.
Space: one foot apart.
Set plants in the ground
so that the crown is slightly
above the soil.
Dahlberg daisy
Flowers: bright yellow.
Height: low-growing.
Space: about a foot
apart.
Cupflower
Flowers: white, blue-vio-
let and purple.
Height: six inches to a
foot.

Marion Landing vets board Honor Flight


Diane
Bress


MARION


Five of our residents
were proud to be
part of the 104 veter-
ans, escorts, doctors, para-
medics and volunteers who
went on the June 14 Ocala
Honor Flight to Washing-
ton, D.C. They are: Al Bon-
danza (U.S. Army Air
Force), Ken Hall (U.S.
Army Artillery), Bob Kre-
mer (U.S. Army Air Corps.),
Walter Heller (U.S. Army
Infantry), and Freeman
Taylor (U.S. Army Air
Force).
The one-day, round trip
included visits to see the
World War II Veterans Me-
morial, Korean War Memo-
rial and Lincoln Memorial
and to see the changing of
the guard at Arlington Na-
tional Cemetery The men
swapped stories of their
experiences during the
war, and the camaraderie
was evident, as they soon
realized some were sta-
tioned at the same base, at


the same time. "It was
quite a trip," said Bob Kre-
mer. "To see the memorials
was just amazing."
Free Seminar and Lunch
Barbara Shoop from the
National Cremation Soci-
ety will present a free in-
formational seminar on
Thursday, July 14, at 11

its causes and risk factors,
when to screen for it and
the therapies for it. It's
never too late - or too
early - to do something

C S OU T H M A RI ON

Citizen,
PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN
REGIONAL MANAGER: JOHN PROVOST
EDITOR: JIM CLARK
"In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum
for community opinion."

OUR VIEW



Save the theater,


but don't push it
There are a lot of people who like to go to the
movies. We can see the advantage of having a the-
ater downtown in Ocala, where people can par-
ticipate in the activities on and around the square and
take in a show.
The Marion Theater has a group that is trying to revi-
talize it, and they're working hard to get it done.
A little while ago it was a "Pirates of the Caribbean"
theme timed to match the opening of a film, and it was
a rousing success. With pirates "invading" Magnolia Av-
enue, complete with thunderous roars of a cannon that
made you wonder if the old buildings could take the vi-
brations, the area was turned into an impromptu festi-
val for hundreds of people.
Then a couple of weeks ago came the opening of "Cars
2." There were some vehicles from the movie and a lot
of others planned, but a storm that could only be de-
scribed as a monsoon swept over the area shortly be-
fore the 4 p.m. starting time, and that held the crowd
down considerably
Fast forward to last week and "Transformers." Again,
some rain hit the area just before 4, but this time it
wasn't nearly as devastating as the week before. But
when 6 o'clock rolled around for the costume judging,
only one entrant could be found.
Let us say that he might have won anyway, because he
looked great, but there were no others to compete in
the "contest."
It made us wonder if perhaps the theater people are
overdoing it a bit. The novelty wore off after the pirates,
and it hasn't been the same since.
Entertainment was limited in the "old" days. Televi-
sion was a few fuzzy channels, and even videotapes
hadn't been invented. So the movies was a great way to
have fun, but people only went when there was a pic-
ture they wanted to see.
Things have changed over the years, and now it's too
easy to get films on DVDs or on cable. So some feel
there have to be glitzy shows and attractions to get peo-
ple to come.
There are, however, just a few things that will draw
the people into this theater, just like in the old days -
good films, reasonable prices, comfortable seating and
convenient free parking. Make sure all that is put to-
gether, and you probably will get people to come out.
So keep up trying to get people to the theater, but
don't go wild with the promotions, and certainly, don't
plan too many of them for 4 o'clock on a summer after-
noon. At that time you're either going to get heat or rain,
and a lot of people would rather stay home in their air
conditioning than fight that battle.


Tact is say-
ing nasty
things in the
nicest way.


COMMENTARY


The case against Casey falls apart


Now that the "trial of the
century" (another one) is
over, we can look back
and see how the verdict evolved.
From my view, this was a botched
prosecution from the start.
Consider how it began, with
numerous witnesses who were
friends and acquaintances of
Casey Anthony and workers from
nightclubs, including "shot girls."
The prosecutors spent a week
or so in this type of testimony,
and when it was going on I
thought to myself, "Is this the
best that they've got?" They're in
trouble." All of this behavior was
after the fact and was supposed
to give the jury a look at the
moral aspect of Casey's life. But
none of it linked her to the death.
That's what the defense called
speculation and innuendo, and
that was correct.
Remember there was also talk
that the meter man who discov-
ered the body had tried to call
police earlier, but was rebuffed.
If that's true, how much physical
forensic evidence was lost over
those four months that the re-
mains lay in the swampy area?
Then came the long, drawn out
forensic testimony, nearly all of
which was rebutted by the de-
fense. It showed forensic "ex-
perts" criticizing each other's
findings, which probably led the
jury to not believe any of them.
In the end, it was the lack of a
murder weapon, the lack of a lo-
cation, the lack of a time of death
that did the prosecution in. No
jury is going to send someone to
the death chamber without some


concrete evidence.
Watching the reactions after-
ward was enlightening about
how little some people know
about the courts. One woman
nearly screamed into the micro-
phone, "Was this jury watching
the same trial I was?" Well, no
ma'am, they weren't. The jury
wasn't hearing all the "analysis"
that was going on during each re-
cess. The jury wasn't exposed to
the nasty comments of Nancy
Grace every night for the entire
trial. All it heard was the actual
testimony, without the editorial
comments.
Finally, there came the closing
summations. The defense won
this, hands down. The prosecutor
spoke first, and he was a disaster.
He read from notes, constantly
turning the pages, making very
little eye contact with the jury,
and exhibited nervousness by
taking a swallow of bottled water
every couple of minutes. He
seemed to be speaking from the
notes, not from the heart.
Then came the defense, and
Jose Baez did a masterful job. He
spoke with very few notes, in-
stead focusing on the jury and
engaging the jury in a one-sided
conversation. He appeared at
ease and spoke with passion.


The prosecution rebuttal came
the next day, and everyone said
it was an advantage for the state,
but it didn't seem that way The
jury just wanted to get going and
probably didn't care about lis-
tening to more legalese from the
attorneys.
There were those who criti-
cized the speed (11 hours) of the
verdict. I wonder if these people
were ever on a jury I was on a
DUI case once, and we went into
the jury room, chose a foreman
(for some reason they chose me)
and I called for a vote to see
where we stood. The vote was 6-
0 guilty, so after only 15 minutes,
we were done. There really
wasn't anything to discuss.
This may have been the same
thing. With seven counts to go
through, it would seem that there
was agreement the first time
around on most of them. People
said they didn't call for more tes-
timony to be read to them or for
longer looks at the evidence, but
if they're all in agreement from
the get-go, why bother?
No one likes to see Casey go
into party mode, or possibly reap
huge profits from movie and
book deals, but that's the way the
system works. If she did it, and
remember, she was found not
guilty (not "innocent"), then
she'll have to answer to a higher
power some day That's when the
truth will all come out .. .no jury
verdict needed.

Just what we need, a cheerleader in chief


A recent guesstimate of the
number of civilian employ-
S AJees working for the federal
government is around 2.6 mil-
lion. It's not unreasonable to as-
sume more than two and a half
million employees should be
able to keep track of how trillions
of federal dollars are being
spent.
Bad assumption! Frequent
news stories reveal Washington
loses track of billions every year.
However, according to the White
House there's new hope. Just re-
cently the president appointed
VP Joe Biden to cheerlead all de-
partments and agencies to spend
more responsibly Really! Rah!
Rah! Rah!
Because of errors and frauds,
Washington wrongly paid out
$125 billion last year, up from
$110 billion the year before.
Even inefficiency and thievery
suffer inflation.
In 2009, Social Security made
$6.5 billion in overpayments. It's
an annual occurrence - partly
fraud and partly errors. The 2010
total isn't available yet. They're
still counting.
Similarly, after 30 years of pay-
ing bogus claims and getting
scammed by hospitals, doctors,
and hustlers, estimated at $60
billion a year, Medicare has an-
nounced plans to use high-tech

screening to head off fraud - not
with their own employees of
course. They awarded a $77 mil-
lion contract to defense contrac-
tor Northrop Grumman. Don't be
surprised if they hire additional
personnel to oversee the
Northrop contract.
A few months ago the Govern-
ment Accountability Office (GAO)
revealed that Congress is fund-
ing 342 economic development
programs, 47 job training pro-
grams, 80 transportation assis-
tance programs for the poor and
disabled, 90 child development
programs, 82 programs to im-
prove teacher quality, and 2100
computer data centers, five times
as many as they had ten years
ago. GAO didn't reveal how many
bureaucrats work in those over-
lapping programs.
Since 2008 the president has
been increasing the number of
IRS employees because they've
been getting more successful at
chasing cheaters. For 2012 the
president proposes to add five


thousand more IRS employees,
plus another twelve hundred to
begin administering his new
health care plan - or is it the
other way around?
Federal employee attitudes
have been influenced by decades
of wild spending by Congress.
Why should lower level employ-
ees stick their necks out when
elected officials continue to vote
greedy, wasteful, and corrupt
projects? Every program has
protectors - congressmen, com-
mittee chairpersons, high level
bureaucrats, and influential lob-
byists.
A sampling of nonsensical
spending by Congress includes
three quarters of a million dol-
lars to study gas emissions by
dairy cows and a hundred and
seventy five million to maintain
buildings the VA never uses, in-
cluding a monkey house. Those
are just two of a long list of lax
and loony projects that federal
employees have to administer
with straight faces.
Congress fears it may lose
power if it gives up reckless
spending. The Cheerleader-in-
chief wants to spend, spend,
spend but appear frugal in order
to get re-elected. And the nation
is in deep financial difficulty
Rah-Rah-Rah? All together now:
Boo! Hiss! Boo!

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


This day sets us apart
As I sit here in anticipa-
tion of Independence Day,
I realize that this is the day
that sets the United States
apart from the rest of the
world, this is the day that
makes us so unique.
Our founding fathers
were so wise to develop
our government as a re-
public and not a democ-
racy Let us take a look at
the difference between
them. A democracy is the
rule by the majority (as in
mob rule). This type of gov-
ernment always turns to
oligarchy which is the rule
by a few elites. This form of
government never last long
because it usually winds
up in chaos with people
looking to the very govern-
ment that created the
chaos to fix it.
A republic on the other
hand is a small government
with limited powers as set
forth by the law of the land.
In our case this is the Con-
stitution and the Bill of
Rights. If people would not
only read the Constitution
but the Federalist Papers
they would educate them-
selves on what a wonderful
legacy the founding fathers
have given us.
Here is a few quotes
from the founders:
'July 4th ought to com-
mutate as a day of deliver-
ance by solemn acts of


devotion to almighty God."
John Adams
"The highest glory of
Revolution was this: it con-
nected in on indissoluble
bond this privies of Christi-
anity" John Quincy
Adams.
"Let us not forget the re-
ligious character of our ori-
gins." Daniel Webster"
Finally the words of
Ronald Reagan "If we for-
get that we are a nation
under God than we are a
nation gone under."
In closing I ask that
while celebrating the birth
of our nation, please pray
that America remains a
Republic as I fear that we
are quickly becoming an
oligarchy as our Constitu-
tion is being shredded on a
daily basis, our schools are
no longer educating but in-
doctrinating and our
morals, churches, and fam-
ilies are eroding quickly
Our country needs
everyone's prayers.
LPE Miller
Ocala
We are broke
America is broke, folks.
Broke, broke.
Embed that fact onto
your brain.
You can yell and scream
all you want about whether
something is an entitle-
ment, or, an investment.
There is no money for ei-


their. You cannot get blood
from a turnip, nor, money
from an empty fund.
The time for yelling and
screaming is long past.
This should have been
done when our illustrious
government began to raid
the funds from the SS piggy
bank.
The government wasted,
excuse me: spent, all our
SS money There are no
funds. They smashed the


piggy bank to smithereens.
Not only has the govern-
ment raped the SS system,
but the financial funds of
every stripe.
How are you living on
your stock funds, your
money market funds, and
CDs? Living high on the
hog? How far is that .01
percent taking you?
Last month I received
one whole cent interest on
my checking account. I am


salting that straight into my
retirement account. Some
day the interest on it may
save my life.
Joke.
Nanny is broke. The gov-
ernment cannot pay any-
one anything. Get it?
The government must
stop spending. Pay off its
credit cards, and shred
them.
"We the people" must
pay attention henceforth.


Keep bureaucrats on a
very short leash. They can-
not be trusted. You see
where trust has gotten us,
thus far.
Our inattention has
brought us a gigantic
headache. Anyone have an
aspirin big enough, or a
couple extra trillion to
spare? I have .01, I might
consider contributing.

Ocala

To pray or not to pray, that is the absurdity


Rev.
James L.
Snyder


OUT



occasionally, I hear
about somebody ob-
jecting to prayer.
Usually, it is somebody who
has no idea what he or she
is talking about. It must be
a slow news day when the
media highlights this as
one of their news stories. I
guess nothing else is going
on in the world demanding
our attention. However,
when someone suggests
praying in public some-
body always rises in open


protest. After all, every-
body knows how dangerous
prayer really is.
Recently, a high school
graduate wanted to in-
clude in her baccalaureate
speech a prayer for her fel-
low graduates. I thought it
was a rather nice gesture
on her part. But certain
people got wind of this and
a nasty roar rose to the
highest heavens. Certainly,
public prayer is a violation
of our constitutional rights,
or so the objection went.
Freedom of speech, obvi-
ously, covers everything
but prayer, particularly
prayer to the Christian
God.
If I know anything about
high school graduates, they
need all the prayer they
can get. After all, our gov-
ernment is not doing them
any favors lately If I were
graduating from high
school this year, I would
want all the help I could
get, including prayer. Most
of them do not have a
prayer of a chance of get-
ting a job upon graduation.

Certain people banter
this notion of separation of
church and state, which
had never entered the
freedom loving minds of
our forefathers. If anybody
would take the time to read
it carefully, our forefathers
did not want the govern-
ment to weld any influence
over any church in this
country Unlike Europe
from which they fled, there
was to be no state church
in America. Now, we have
it backward and the gov-
ernment is trying to influ-
ence religion in our
country They can't even
balance a budget, yet they
want to balance my spiri-
tual life.
If you ask me, the biggest
religion in our country is
politics. If you do not think
it is a religion, then care-
fully think again. Politics
has all the accoutrements
of religion right down to
kissing someone's ring for
some blessing. I think they
call that lobbying. Every
politician has a list of do's
and don't, which, of
course, changes depending
on what audience he is
talking to at the time. Then
there is that St. Francis of
Assisi smile that all politi-
cians have perfected.
Someone recently said to


me, "I don't believe in reli-
gion." I am not quite sure
what he meant by that
statement, and I am quite
sure he did not know what
he meant. All I can think of
is somebody used that
word in his presence and,
like an infant hearing a
word for the first time, goes
around saying it, usually
out of context. Some pon-
tificate the idea that they
are absolutely nonreli-
gious. Of course, no such
creature has ever walked
on the face of God's earth.
Those who boast of being
nonreligious are ab-
solutely religious in propa-
gating their
non-religiousness. You will
not find a more faithful
congregation of people
than those who claim to be
nonreligious. If Christians
were as religious as some
of these nonreligious peo-
ple, the church would be
exploding today
Every person born of
woman worships some-
thing or someone. If we do
not worship God, we are
going to worship some-
thing else and some even
go as far as to worship
themselves. I think God
Himself chuckles at this
last category Imagine,
somebody actually wor-


shipping himself.
Prayer is one of those
things that come natural to
a person. Even those who
do not pray on a regular
basis will pray when they
get into trouble. They may
not pray to God. They pray
to somebody or something,
which is the absurdity of it
all.
I find it rather amusing,
but sad, that most people
do not know whom they are
praying to. Everybody, if
they have a sober and hon-
est moment, recognizes
that there is a power be-
yond them. If they do not
recognize such a power,
they assume they are that
power.
Those who do not recog-
nize God have become a
god unto themselves. I
have often wondered how
these people pray to them-
selves. So, to help them out
as much as possible, I have
come up with a prayer for
those who believe they are
in fact God.
"I am my own father, hal-
lowed be my name. My
kingdom come, my will be
done, on earth as it is in my
dreams. I give myself this
day my daily bread, and I
foreclose on all my debts,
as I have eluded my
debtors. And I go right into


temptation, because I re-
ally enjoy evil. For mine is
the kingdom, and the
power, and the glory, for as
long as I say so. Amen."
It must be nice to pray to
yourself. I would not know,
because I have never tried
it. I have given myself a
good talking to, but that
sure is not prayer.
The Bible says a lot
about prayer. Some of my
favorite quotes are, "Pray
without ceasing" (1 Thessa-
lonians 5:17 KJV), "Is any
among you afflicted? let
him pray" (James 5:13a
KJV), "Praying always with
all prayer and supplication
in the Spirit, and watching
thereunto with all perse-
verance and supplication
for all saints" (Ephesians
6:18 KJV).
For me, the question is
never to pray or not to pray
I enjoy my daily time of
prayer with my Father
which art in heaven.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOLS Christmas in July craft show this week


Joy Lutheran
Joy Lutheran Church will hold its vacation Bible
school from July 18 to 22 from 9 a.m. to noon. All children
from 5 years of age through fifth grade are encouraged to

This year the theme for vacation Bible school is
"Hometown Nazareth." This small dusty town, where
Jesus lived many centuries ago has a population of 500,
now today there are approximately 60,000 people living
there. This program will take the children back to those
days when transportation was by donkey and water was
drawn from a well. The children will meet Jesus' mother,
Mary, and hear stories of Jesus' boyhood, how he grew
and lived. They will learn about Jesus' life in Nazareth
through crafts, songs and games that the children in an-
cient Nazareth learned and played.
Registration for vacation Bible school is available dur-
ing the month of June at the church office. For further
information contact the church office at 352-854-4509 ext.

avoidable and was caused
by:-
1) Widespread failure of

Now there are 26 million
Americans out of work.
Nearly $11 trillion in

age has been real people
and real communities.
The collapse of the hous-
ing bubble triggered the
2008 collapse. At the same
time financial service
firms constituted an in-
creasingly disproportion-
ate part of the U.S.
economy, 27 percent of all
corporate profits in the
U.S. compared with 15 per-
cent in 1980.

weather is upon us. Tuesday and
Thursday between the hours of 5-7
we have open tennis courts available
for anyone who would just like to hit
the ball around and have some


recreational tennis. For any new-
comers who want to play tennis, con-
tact Jim Harris for the men and
Sandy Wyler for the ladies. At the
courts there is a bulletin board with
valuable information.

him the best of luck with his upcom-
ing surgery
We hope for a speedy recovery and
that we will see him on the courts
soon.

Royal Oaks Men's Golf
Unfortunately, Mother Nature did-
n't cooperate, and forced cancella-
tion of the closing round of the Red,
White and Blue tournament to cele-
brate Independence Day
So, awards were based on the first
day of play
The game was the best three net
scores, with one player hitting from
the blue tees, two from the white
tees, and one from the red tees. First
with a score of 206 were Emmet
Dowling, Larry Love, Ed Simnowitz,
and Chuck Engel. Second with a
score of 207 were Bob Gray, Ralph
Lavacca, Mike Madill, and Duke
Slayton. In third with a score of 208
were John Terry, Paul Valois, and
Virgil Hein.
Lunch was served as the awards
were handed out, and a good time
was had by all talking about all the
"good" shots that got away No more
tournaments until October, but look
for that announcement as the date
approaches.

EARTH TALK

Why aren't we developing alternatives to chemicals?


E - The Environmental
Magazine
Dear EarthTalk: So
many chemicals in every-
day products are harmful
to our health and the envi-
ronment Why aren't we de-
veloping safer
alternatives? - Donna
Langston, Asheville, NC
Researchers today are
beginning to question the
safety of many chemicals
used in consumer prod-
ucts. Studies have linked
Bisphenol A (BPA), flame
retardants, phthalates and
many other chemicals
found in everyday prod-
ucts to a wide range of
health problems, including
cancer, learning and be-
havioral problems and re-
productive illnesses.
Despite the federal gov-
ernment's slowness in call-
ing for it, nonprofit labs
and for-profit companies
alike have been busy de-
veloping safer alternatives
to some of these harsher
chemicals. The brave new
world of "green chemistry,"
-'in which reducing or
eliminating the use or gen-
eration of hazardous sub-
stances is top priority in
the design, use and dis-
posal of products,-' is lead-
ing to a rash of new, safer
ingredients.
Companies looking to
put a "BPA-free" sticker on
their bottles, for instance,
can make them instead
with Eastman Tritan
copolyester, a plastic alter-
native that doesn't disrupt
hormones as Nalgene and
CamelBak do. Phtha-
lates-used to soften plas-
tic toys-can be replaced
with a product called
Grindsted Soft-N-Safe,
made from acetic acid and
castor oil from the castor
plant. Formaldehyde adhe-
sives used to make ply-


wood and other wood
products can be replaced
with soy-based resins,
wood fibers and plastic-
wood fibers.
The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA)
supports the effort through
its sponsorship of the Pres-
idential Green Chemistry
Challenge Awards. The an-
nual awards program rec-
ognizes and helps fund
efforts to reduce the
amount of hazardous sub-
stances released into the
environment or entering
the waste stream, and ef-
forts that reduce the public
health hazards associated
with the release of such
substances-'.


But while the EPA has
the power to spur green
chemistry, it is powerless
to ban many dangerous
chemicals in widespread
use. The 1976 law that still
governs use of many chem-
icals, the Toxic Substances
Control Act (TSCA), pre-
sumes that chemicals are
innocent until proven
guilty TSCA has failed to
require basic testing for
the toxicity of some 62,000
chemicals grandfathered
in when the law was first
passed.
"Once thought to pose lit-
tle likelihood of exposure,
we now know many chemi-
cals migrate from the ma-
terials and products in

which they're used---in-

and food cans--'into our
bodies," reports the Safer
Chemicals, Healthy Fami-
lies campaign. The cam-
paign warns that just about
every American carries
hundreds of these chemi-
cals in their bloodstreams.
Senator Frank Lauten-
berg (D-NJ) recently intro-
duced a bill, the Safe
Chemicals Act, aimed at
overhauling the outdated


TSCA. It would require
safety testing of all existing
chemicals and would pro-
mote so-called green
chemistry and the develop-
ment of safe alternatives to
unsafe chemicals. The Act
would provide the EPA
with the authority it needs
to protect public health,
while enabling the market-
place to innovate safe
products, reports Richard

Dear EarthTalk: I'm
looking for the best places
to search for green jobs but
am having trouble locating
them on traditional job
search sites. Where should
I look? - H. Jenkins,
Biloxi, MS
With the environment
now high atop the public
agenda, green jobs are
more popular than ever.
Defined by eco.org (a lead-
ing green jobs website) as
any job in any company
where the primary focus is
on reducing the impacts of
our activities or products
on the environment, green
jobs serve to maximize ef-
ficient use of resources


while minimizing degrada-
tion of the planet from pol-
lution and waste. "Eco-jobs
can range from engineer-
ing a photovoltaic solar
cell to designing a building
for more energy efficiency
to landscaping a yard to
minimize erosion to find-
ing more sustainable
forestry techniques," re-
ports eco.org.
While you may be hard
pressed to find environ-
mental job opportunities
on general employment
search websites, sites like
eco.org that specialize in
green job listings can make
your search easy Also,
many general environmen-
tal sites have employment
sub-sections. Green job
seekers and employers
alike use these websites to
find each other and get
their work done, whether
in the non-profit or for-
profit worlds.
Eco.org prides itself on
hosting a wide range of list-
ings from colleges, envi-
ronmental and other
nonprofit groups, media
outlets and government
agencies. With Google and


Bing listing the site first for
the search term "eco," the
website generates hun-
dreds of thousands of page
visits per month from thou-
sands of green job seekers
and employers, and also
keeps its audience en-
gaged through social net-
working.
Another leader in the
field is the nonprofit Green
Jobs Network, which pro-
vides online services in-
cluding a green job board
and a 20,000 member
group on the professional
networking site Linkedln.
The group also uses its
GreenJobs.net website as a
platform for webinars, and
is the home of the fre-
quently updated Green
Collar Blog, which pro-
vides career resources and
information on the green
jobs sector
Environmental Career
Opportunities
(ecojobs.com) is another
tried and true source for
green job listings. Some
50,000 targeted job seekers
subscribe to the company's
bi-weekly newsletter that
contains unique green job


opportunities. Still other
places to look for green
jobs include EcoEm-
ploycom and the Environ-
mental Career Center.
Another site, Green-
jobs.com, focuses on job
opportunities specifically
in the renewable energy
sector. Jobseekers can use
the website to apply for
jobs, post their resume, ob-
tain guidance on finding
and applying for jobs, gain
background information
on the renewable energy
sector, and access a direc-
tory of relevant companies
and organizations. Em-
ployers can take advantage
of the firm's recruitment
services.
Browsing job listings at
other more general envi-
ronmental websites could
also turn up that perfect
opportunity Sustainable-
Business.com and the U.S.
Green Building Council
feature extensive green job
listings as sub-sections of
their websites. And yet an-
other way to find a green
job is to sniff around the
website of a company, or-
ganization or institution in


your field of interest for
specific job listings-or
better yet, call them on the
phone to find out if there
are any openings.

Social Security retirement estimator marks three years


* Adon
f Williams


SOCIAL



It's been three years
since Social Security's
Retirement Estimator
went online. Within
months of coming out, the
online application was
praised as one of the high-
est-rated online services
around, and it has consis-
tently remained so every
year.
Results from the Ameri-


can Customer Satisfaction
Index show Social Secu-
rity's online Retirement
Estimator in one of the
top two spots, with a score
of 90. (Social Security's
online benefit application
took the top spot.) The Re-
tirement Estimator ranks
higher than the websites
of any other public and
private sector agencies
and companies, including
the likes of Netflix and
Amazon.
Millions of people have
used the Retirement Esti-
mator. You may try it your-
self at
wwwsocialsecuritygov/es-
timator.
Now that Social Secu-
rity's most popular online
application is available in
Spanish at wwwseguroso-
cial.gov/calculador, even
more people can use the
Retirement Estimator.
The Retirement Estima-
tor is a convenient, se-
cure, and quick financial


planning tool that lets
workers calculate how
much they might expect to
receive in Social Security
benefits when they retire.
The attractive feature of
this calculator is that it
uses your earnings infor-
mation on file at Social
Security, without display-
ing your personal informa-
tion. So, you get an


instant, personalized esti-
mate of your future retire-
ment benefits.
The Estimator even
gives you the opportunity
to run different scenarios
and "what if" situations.
For example, you can
change the date you ex-
pect to retire or change
expected future earnings
to create and compare dif-


ferent retirement options.
This can help you as you
plan ahead.
To use the Retirement
Estimator, you must have
enough Social Security
credits to qualify for bene-
fits and you cannot be cur-
rently receiving benefits.
Experience the best on-
line service now by visit-
ing Social Security's


Retirement Estimator at
wwwsocialsecuritygov/es-
timator. Once you've
sketched out your retire-
ment plans, you'll know
where to go when the time
comes to apply for bene-
fits: online at www.so-
cialsecuritygov

Security district manager
in Ocala.
