The Florida 511 Traveler Information System provides traffic information on all of Floridas interstates, toll roads and many major metropolitan roadways. The app is available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch in the iTunes App Store. The new app provides the same real-time traffic and travel time information as the 511 phone system and FL511.com. The 511 app uses iPhones GPS tracking to provide users with traffic information within miles of their location. Users can set the app to provide information for a range of up to 200 miles from their location or receive traffic information based on their registered My Florida 511 custom routes. Travel time information is also available based on location and direction of travel. The Florida 511 app offers traffic updates in three ways: An audible recording of incidents On-screen list of incidents Map view displaying incidents This is a great addition to Florida 511s suite of traffic resources such as the toll-free phone call, FL511.com and My Florida 511 personalized services, said FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad. The app allows users to access traffic updates quickly and safely. The Florida 511 system is a safety resource from FDOT. The Department reminds all travelers to Know Before You Go by checking the app, making a toll-free call to 511 or visiting FL511.com before leaving to avoid distracted driving. If youre on the road, have a passenger check 511 or pull off the road to call 511 or check the 511 app, said Sgt. Kim Montes of the Florida Highway Patrol. Users can still receive personalized Florida 511 updates by creating a My Florida 511 account. Registered users can hear information on their custom routes first when calling 511 and even receive traffic alerts via phone call, text message and/or e-mail. My Florida 511 users can customize alerts based on time of day, day of the week and severity of incident. The system is also updated during emergencies such as a hurricane or wildfire with information on lane closures, toll suspensions and more. DOTS 511 launches new traffic app The Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest honored six new Paul Harris Fellow recipients at its annual dinner on June 4, the only 100 percent Paul Harris Fellow Club named this year in District 6970.

Marion County parks evoke some of the best memories of fun, relaxation and, yes, intense workout for many county residents. But for residents Emilia Gamero, 9, and Kaden McMillan, 11, county parks are all about creating a sense of community, respect for nature and a desire to safeguard Floridas future. At last weeks regularly scheduled meeting, the Marion County Board of County Commissioners recognized Gamero and McMillan as winners in the first Marion County Parks Poster Contest. Marion County Parks and Recreation, in partnership with the City of Ocala Recreation and Parks Department, hosted the contest in June as part of local celebrations commemorating National Recreation and Parks Month.

A local woman faces eight felony charges stemming from her arrest for stealing from a family in which she was caring for a dying man. Chequita Michelle Terry, 40, of Northwest Blitchton Road, allegedly worked in the home of an Indigo Lakes couple for months. During that time she allegedly took jewelry and pawned some of it. The thefts were discovered by the woman living in the house after her husband had died. Terry is charged with four counts of larceny and four counts of dealing in stolen property. She was booked into the jail on July 7 and released Monday of this week. A court date is scheduled for August. There were actually four caregivers working in shifts, and the victim was able to identify them from their driver license photos. Deputies then checked pawn shops for activity for each of the four nurses, and Terrys was the only name that came up in the investigation. DUI arrests Juan Carlos Rodriguez, 30, of Southwest 119th Court, Dunnellon, was accused of DUI and driving while license suspended or revoked after being stopped for making two illegal turns. Rodriguez supplied an ID card from Texas. A criminal history check showed arrests for DUI in 2003 and 2004 in Texas. After he reportedly failed a field sobriety test, he was taken to the Marion County Jail, where his breath reportedly registered .259 and .240. Jose Dominguez, 27, of Northwest 110th Court, was accused of DUI and driving while license suspended or revoked after being stopped at Northwest 110th Avenue and State Road 40 West for failing to drive in a single line and speeding 72 in a 55 mph zone. After he allegedly failed the field sobriety test, he was taken to jail, where he refused to give a breath sample. A computer check showed a previous arrest for DUI and a license revocation. Other county reports Two teens face conspiracy to commit murder charges after an alleged plot to kill a classmate. Christopher Paul Rigiero, 16, of Summerfield, and Paul Alexander Malnasi, 16 of Ocala were arrested on July 8. Marion County Sheriffs Office Detectives allegedly learned that both high school students conspired to torture, kill and dismember a ninth grader. A witness told detectives, Rigiero and Malnasi were playing Xbox online. At one point, Rigiero asked Malnasi to help kill the targeted ninth grader and then dispose the victims body. The witness said Malnasi agreed to the murder plan and even offered both his vehicle and torture kit that he keeps in the trunk of his car. Also, conversations from a popular social media website revealed that Rigiero hates the victim and wants to kill him. Both suspects discussed how not to get caught like those of another homicide (Seath Jacksons case). Malnasi and Rigiero discussed kidnapping the juvenile victim. The suspects planned to gag the victim, hit the victim about the head, stuff the victim into a Kevlar bag, so that the juvenile victims body would sink. Malnasi and Rigiero planned to dispose of the victims body parts in the waters near Miami. Detectives found an axe, surgical cutting tools, a torch lighter, rope, scissors and other cutting tools in the trunk of Malnasis car. In another case, with homeowners away, a neighbor realized no one should be at the home. So, he called the Marion County Sheriffs Office after observing a strange vehicle parked on the property. The tipster provided a description of the vehicle and the tag number. This was in the Hog Valley area just before noon, Thursday, July 7. By the time a deputy arrived, the vehicle and suspect were gone. But, evidence was left behind: fresh shoe and tire tracks. The deputy reported finding: a broken front door; copper wire pulled from the walls; wiring cut from the outlets, switches and light sockets; wiring pulled from the ceiling throughout the home; copper was cut from the air conditioner and water heater. Marion County Sheriffs Office Detective Barney Gaskin got involved and found the suspected vehicle less than two miles away. Det. Gaskin saw burglary tools in the vehicle. Plus tire and shoe tracks similar to those at the scene, said MCSO Lieutenant Dennis M. Chesser, Commander, Northeast District. It didnt take long after making contact with Henry Pabst before Det. Gaskin allegedly discovered property reported stolen from another burglary in the Hog Valley area that occurred back in May. Pabst was charged with the burglary that happened July 7, as well as an outstanding warrant for violation of probation. Detectives located other items that appear to be stolen property. If anyone in the Hog Valley area has had a recent burglary which they did not report, we need them to call, said Lt. Chesser. Contact Det. Gaskin at 352-402-6010. Jewelry items stolen from dying mans wife Proponents of nuclear power and of reprocessing in particular were far from pleased with GNEPs axing, especially in light of Obamas earlier decision to close Yucca Mountain as the U.S.s future nuclear waste repository. GNEP may have gone away, but the need to recycle spent fuel in this country is more important than ever because of the governments stupid decision to close Yucca Mountain, said Danny Black of the Southern Carolina Alliance, a regional economic development group, on the Ecopolitology blog. Without Yucca Mountain, the pressure is on the industry to do more with recycling. But a 2007 report by the nonprofit Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (IEER) would seem to justify Obamas decision. IEER found that nuclear reprocessing would actually increase our volume of nuclear waste six fold. IEER also reported that France, which runs the worlds most efficient reprocessing operation, spends about two cents per kilowatt hour more for electricity generated from reprocessed nuclear fuel compared to that generated from fresh fuel. IEEE further reports that the costs to build the breeder plants needed to convert spent nukes into usable fuel would create intolerable costs and risks. For now, U.S. nuclear plants will continue to store waste on site, with spent rods cooled in pools of water for upwards of a year and then moved into thick steel and concrete caskets. While proliferation and terrorism have long been risks associated with hosting nuclear plants on American soil, recent events in Japan underscores that even Mother Nature poses a threat. As such, advocates of reprocessing probably stand little chance of reviving plans in a political climate now so hostile to nuclear development.

EARTH TALKCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The Senior Learning Institute at the College of Central Florida will premiere a video of The Holocaust Cantata, the culminating performance of a history, music and dance class held by the institute in collaboration with Dr. Wayne Earnest and the Marion Civic Chorale, Ana Jacobs and the Light of Joy Ballet Company, and West Port High School. The video will be shown Tuesday, July 19, at 6 p.m. at the Webber Center of the CF Ocala Campus, 3001 S.W. College Road. There is no fee to attend. The video, approximately 90 minutes, is a recording of The Holocaust Cantata at West Port High School in Ocala in April. The performance included songs and narration by Holocaust survivors and their family members interspersed with music and dance by community members and West Port students. This project gave a voice and visual remembrance to those who suffered in the Holocaust, said Jerone Gamble, CF manager of Continuing Education. Our community came together to create this moving performance which will stay with us forever through the video. The Senior Learning Institute at CF held the course, A Slice of Tragic History to an On-Stage Holocaust Cantata, during spring semester. The institute offers lifelong learning opportunities for senior community members. During the five performances following the class, the Cantata was seen by more than 2,000 people in Marion and Citrus counties. The Holocaust Cantata publisher, Hinshaw Music Inc., has granted utilization of the DVD for the entire state of Florida for three years for educational purposes. The Florida Holocaust Mandate requires instruction on the Holocaust for all students in kindergarten through grade 12. Ultimately, the establishment of Holocaust studies in Florida schools is expected to play a significant role in the development of tolerant attitudes, cooperative and collaborative behaviors, informed, involved and compassionate citizens, and other skills encouraging civility, according to Florida statute. For information on the video screening, contact the Senior Learning Institute at call 352-854-2322, ext. 1675, or Jerone Gamble at 352-854-2322, ext. 1282.

Also on Tuesday, commissioners presented a Parks and Recreation Month proclamation recognizing the contributions of local parks to the health and quality of life of Marion County residents. Parks and recreation are integral foundations in the well-being of our citizens, said Gina Peebles, the countys parks and recreation director. Our park areas dont just encourage fitness and active lifestyles; they also help drive economic growth through increased commerce and property values. Cities and counties nationwide celebrate Recreation and Parks Month in July to recognize the role park and recreation facilities play in creating successful communities. To learn more about Marion County parks and recreation opportunities, visit www.marioncountyfl.org/p POSTER CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 A ccording to the Internet site, Bizarre, Crazy, Silly Unknown Holidays, tomorrow is Cow Appreciation Day. Just off of Pun Alley is a little known cow path where we see some moving tails, or is it moooving tales? Lots of cows A young man visited a small ranch and was walking with one of the ranch hands through the barnyard when he said, Say, look at that big bunch of A little known cow path can be found off Pun Alley P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank cows. The hired hand replied, Not bunch, but herd. Heard what? Herd of cows. Sure, Ive heard of cows, theres a big bunch of em right over there. Milked for all its worth A farmer was milking a cow when a fly appeared. After circling around the cows head, it flew into the cows ear. Then a few minutes later, as the farmer continued milking, the fly squirted out into his bucket. Recounting the story, the farmer explained, It went in one ear and out the udder. Retail The farmer had been taken so many times by the local car dealer that when the dealer wanted to buy a cow, the farmer told him the cost would be $200 for the basic cow, two-tone exterior $45; extra stomach $75; product storage compartment, $60; dispensing device, four spigots at $10 each, $40; genuine cowhide upholstery, $125; dual horns, $15; and automatic fly swatter, $35. Total price would be $595 not including administrative and product preparation fees. Cow tales Cows wear bells because their horns dont work. When the cow jumped over the barbed wire fence it was an udder catastrophe. The cowboy that got fired from his ranch job wasnt crazy; he was just deranged. A cow that doesnt give milk is an udder failure. A cows happiest place on earth is in Cowlifornia, of course. Holstains are the spots on black and white cows. Milk of Amnesia comes from a forgetful cow. When cows go to school they like moosic, psycowolgy, and cowculus. Spoiled milk comes from pampered cows. Short story Now, son, the farmer said to the new farmhand, are you sure you know just how long cows should be milked? Yep, said the hired help. Just the same as short ones. The Cowboy Cowboy Joe was telling his fellow cowboys back on the ranch about his first visit to an Orlando church. When I got there, they had me park my old truck in the corral, Joe began. You mean the parking lot, interrupted Charlie, a worldlier fellow. I walked up the trail to the door, Joe continued. The sidewalk, Charlie corrected him. Inside the door, I was met by this dude, Joe went on. The usher, Charlie explained. Well, the usher led me down the chute, Joe said. You mean the aisle, Charlie said. Then, he led me to a stall and told me to sit there, Joe continued. Pew, Charlie retorted. Yeah, recalled Joe. Thats what that pretty lady said when I sat down beside her. Higher math A teacher was introducing mathematics to children. She said, in order to subtract, things have to be the same type. For instance, we couldnt take three pears from four peaches, or eight horses from ten cats. Do you understand? Most of the students understood but one little boy in the rear raised his hand inquiringly. Well, Bobby, asked the teacher, what is it? Please, teacher, he said, couldnt you take three quarts of milk from two cows? Welcome back Three cowboys were waiting for their friend to show up at the corral with his new car. I know that smart aleck, said the first. Hes gonna start bragging about that new foreign car he bought as soon as he gets back. Naw, the second cowboy replied. Hell always be just a good ol boy. When he walks in, Im sure all hell say is hello. I know Tex better than either of you, said the third. Hes so smart, hell figure out a way to do both. Just then, the door swung open. Audi, partners! Wordy The husband showed his wife an article about a study which concluded that men use about 10,000 words per day while women use 20,000 words per day. See? He said. Women talk twice as much as men. No. Women use twice as many words as men because we have to repeat everything we say. What? Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. arks.htm, or call 352-6718560.

Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com E THE ENVIRONMENTAL MAGAZINE Dear EarthTalk: Why dont we reprocess and re-use our nuclear waste like France does? Would it be possible for us to start doing so? -Albert Jukowsky, Silver Spring, MD Reprocessing nuclear waste to extract more energy from it, while expensive and controversial, is indeed to this day still practiced in France, the UK, Russia, India and Japanbut not in the United States, where it was invented. The process involves breaking down spent nuclear fuel chemically and recovering fissionable material for use in new fuels. Proponents tout the benefit of reducing the amount of nuclear waste, resulting in less highly radioactive material that needs to be stored safely. Nuclear reprocessing was first developed in the U.S. as part of the World War II-era Manhattan Project to create the first atomic bomb. After the war, the embryonic nuclear power industry began work to reprocess its waste on a large scale to extend the useful life of uranium, a scarce resource at the time. But commercial reprocessing attempts faltered due to technical, economic and regulatory problems. Anti-nuclear sentiment and the fear of nuclear proliferation in the 1970s led President Jimmy Carter to terminate federal support for further development of commercial reprocessing. The military did continue to reprocess nuclear waste for defense purposes, though, until the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War made continuous ramping up of our nuclear arsenal unnecessary. More recently, George W. Bush pushed a plan, the Global Nuclear Energy Project (GNEP), to promote the use of nuclear power and subsidize the development of a new generation of proliferation-resistant nuclear reprocessing technologies that could be rolled out to the commercial nuclear energy sector. Federal scientists came up with promising spins on reprocessing nuclear fuel while minimizing the resulting waste. But in June of 2009 the Obama administration cancelled GNEP citing cost concerns. TOUCANRADIO, COURTESY FLICKR Reprocessing nuclear waste -practiced in France and several other countries but not in the U.S. where it was invented -involves breaking down spent nuclear fuel to recover material for use in new fuels. Proponents say it reduces the amount of nuclear waste, resulting in less highly radioactive material that needs to be stored safely. Pictured: France's Cattenom nuclear power station.

On the way, he tried fishing from shore and was rewarded with a beautiful shoal bass from the Chipola near CR278. He described this as his favorite catch, as it slammed a finesse worm and came 2 feet out of the water, giving them all a thrill. It is also a beautiful fish, with tiger stripes along its cheeks, an orange tint and bright red eyes. By the end of April, he had three of the four Florida black basses to his credit. Needing only the spotted bass, and wanting the best (most recent) information available, he contacted the FWC. I had the good fortune of taking his call and enjoyed a delightful conversation with this avid angler, conservationist and family man. Enthralled by his story, I put him in touch with one of our regional offices, where Katie Woodside and Matt Wegener provided him with the information he needed. In his words, "Some great folks there shared with me great (and beautiful) locations to find my last species. This trip actually began on my birthday (May 26) and resulted with the accomplishment of my Florida bass slam." He caught a qualifying spotted bass at the Hightower Springs Landing on Holmes Creek, just by walking the bank with his family and casting a finesse worm. It must have been a memorable birthday and Memorial Day for him and his family. That sounds like enough to make a great story and cover a half-year of fishing, but the Walkers had more to offer. Nancy, Jim's wife, is one fish shy of her Florida slam as well. Jim has his own new goal. Now he wants to catch other species of bass in Florida, and he can already scratch the nonnative peacock bass off his list.

T he Animal Center dogs of the month for July are sure to appeal to anyone who wants a puppy or a young dog. The puppy is two month old Tater, a sweet little tot with a sad story. Tater and a few siblings were dropped off at someones yard sale to be adopted. The puppies that were left at the end of the day were brought to the Animal Center for a second chance because the yard sale holder couldnt take care of all the remaining puppies. Now Tater is left and this young female Terrier mix needs a loving forever home. If youve been on the lookout for a pup to add to your family, please give this adorable girl a chance. Call or visit the Animal Center as quick as you can so that beautiful Tater doesnt have to spend one additional minute at the shelter. Then you and she can start creating a bond that will last a lifetime. If you would like a young dog for your family dog, but not a puppy, how about giving Happy the Boxer/Dalmatian mix a chance. Happy is like his name happy, energetic and playful. He may be best suited to a young family or a senior with energy and stamina to burn. This boy is a year and eight months old, so hes already been leash trained, obeys commands and doesnt try to escape from the back yard. Happy is friendly with children and other dogs, so he could fit into a multi-dog household or a home with kids or grandkids. He loves to ride in the car so you can take him on joy rides around town or a trip to the dog park. A young, energetic dog like Happy needs to be exercised regularly each day. If youre strictly a couch potato, you would need a mellower dog. If a playful companion is what makes your heart sing, Happy will happily accommodate you. Happy was also a volunteer in a project the Animal Center conducted with the University of Florida veterinary students. Students DNA tested certain dogs, including Happy. So as a bonus, if you adopt Happy, you will also get his DNA test results. Then you will accurately know his ancestry. Taters ID number is A048343 and Happys is A043306. Please give Animal Services their ID number when you call them at 352-671-8700. Both dogs are available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes their spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St. Lost and Found Pets The SPCA would like to go over with you the steps to take if you find a lost pet, or lose your own pet. Before we get to that, though, we cant stress enough that all pets should be microchipped and the information on the chip should always be updated if you move or change your phone number. You should also keep a collar and name tag and rabies vaccination on your pet. This will help insure that a lost pet is returned to you and that a found pet can be reunited with his family. You should call the Sheriffs office, local veterinary hospitals, and most importantly, Marion County Animal Center at 671-8700. You should also go to their website at www.marioncountyfl.org/animal.htm and click on the Lost and Found button. You can then either register that youve found a pet or lost a pet. Once you forward this information, wait for a response back asking you if all the information is correct and you wish to proceed. If you click submit, the information will be sent to the main database. When a match is found, Animal Center will contact you. If youve lost a pet, you should also visit the Animal Center at 5701 S.E. 66th Street to see if your animal is at the shelter. Some people that find a lost pet will foster them until the family is found. Others will immediately call Animal Control to report a stray and the animal will be picked up and brought to the shelter. If you live in a community, check to see if there are procedures in place to deal with this scenario. For example, you may be told to call a guard gate to report the lost or found animal and the guard will coordinate getting the parties together. If youve found a lost animal and someone contacts you and says its their pet, make sure you get proof before handing the animal over to avoid scams. Get veterinary information and check that the pet and the person belong to each other. A couple of weeks ago, the Animal Center database was put to the test. A Good Samaritan took home a lost Goldendoodle who was evidently well cared for and well behaved. Clearly, he belonged to someone. Unfortunately, he had no collar and tags and no microchip. The Samaritan called the Animal Center and registered the dog on the Lost Pet database. Three days later he got a call from the Center that there was a match. He called the people and confirmed through veterinary records that this wonderful dog was indeed their lost pet. They met at a public location and a joyful reunion ensued. This sweet dog had panicked during an intense sudden storm when he was in the backyard, jumped the fence and traveled a few miles away from home. As you can see, a pet can become lost in an instant. Make sure they have identification so you can be reunited quickly. If not, go through the procedures above to try to find them as soon as possible. SPCA News The SPCA meets the third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 1 p.m. in Suite H at the Arbor Conference Center in On Top of the World Communities. Therefore our next meeting will be in September. During the summer we will continue to pack food for the Pets on Wheels Program, hold a used book sale outside of Winn Dixie (we will let you know when) and find homes for pets in need as well as help with their medical care. For anyone wishing to send us a donation by check, our address is: SPCA of Marion County Inc., 8501B S.W. 93rd Lane, Ocala FL 34481. We greatly appreciate the generosity of our neighbors in the community. If you need our help or would like to join the SPCA or our foster program, please call us at 352-3620985 to find out more. Until next month remember: Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.

Although spring and summer are baseball season for many Americans to whom a grand slam is that glorious occasion of hitting a home run with the bases loaded, many will marvel more at Walker's stunning and fun accomplishment. Even though baseball is touted as our national pastime, anglers outnumber baseball players many times over. (Seventeen percent of Americans age 6 or older fish, and 5 percent play baseball, according to the Outdoor Recreation Foundation 2010 Participation Report.) "I was inspired by an article in 'Bassmaster' magazine and made it my 2011 New Year's resolution to catch all the Florida black bass species this year," Walker said. Florida has four of the nine black bass species that make up the BASS Slam (BassMaster.com/Slam). Collectively, bass are the most popular sport fishes in North America. The Florida largemouth is the largest and most popular of all, but its smaller cousins provide great fishing as well. Completing the slam requires a commitment to travel, careful research and a high level of skill. Because of the immense popularity of black bass and their potential to contribute to the ecological, economic and social well-being of Florida, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) on June 9 approved a longterm management plan (see MyFWC.com/Fishing) to ensure anglers worldwide will recognize Florida as the undisputed bass fishing capital of the world. Among the many action items in the new plan is the idea of promoting the Florida black bass grand slam, which can inspire anglers to seek out new opportunities and emphasize the critical need for habitat management and conservation to keep these fisheries viable. Walker's story epitomizes all that the FWC hopes to encourage in anglers. His quest began April 2 with a trip to Oleno State Park on the Santa Fe River, accompanied by his wife, Nancy, and their 4-year-old son, Jack. While fishing there in a rented canoe, he caught both a Suwannee bass, with its beautiful purplish colors along the lateral line, and a Florida largemouth. Walker next took on the shoal bass. After researching the species on MyFWC.com/Fishing and elsewhere, he decided that the upper Chipola was the best place to go.

Were always in need of blood OTOW HAPPENINGS As part of its ongoing push for energy conservation, independence and efficiency, On Top of the World Communities, 8445 S.W. 80th St., has installed a system of solar panels to fully power its 8,800-square-foot golf-course maintenance building at this central Florida active-adult community. Already demonstrating leadership in energy efficiency by offering solar panels as an option on every home it builds, On Top of the World is expanding its efforts to the non-residential structures on this 12,972acre property, says Kenneth D. Colen, president, On Top of the World Communities. The golf-course maintenance building was an ideal first choice. Because it faces due south, has a perfect existing roof pitch and has unobstructed access to the sun, the building was selected for installation of the 300 3-by-5-foot panels. At a cost of nearly $340,000, the system will provide 115 percent of the buildings power needed to run all electrical equipment, airconditioning, office space, water-recycling systems and to handle the buildings landscaping irrigation. Colen says that with rebates from Progress Energy and a 30 percent federal tax credit, the systems net cost was slashed to about $180,000. It is expected to save On Top of the World Communities about $10,000 in annual energy costs, while the excess 15 percent ($1,500) of energy generated will be sold back to the power company each year. The system should break even in about 15 years ... based on a 2.5 percent annual increase in power costs. From that point until the end of the solar panels 30-year life span, all generated power will be sold back to Progress Energy, reducing the long-term investment to almost zero, while providing three decades of cost-free power. This was never about short-term benefit, Colen explains. Our solar program represents our long-term commitment to energy independence and conservation for the benefit of our residents, our company and this country. Aside from the golf maintenance building, On Top of the World Communities is exploring further expansion of the solar program to other administrative and recreational structures in the community. On Top of the World Communities is the only Florida home builder and one of just six in the nation to be recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency with a 2010 Energy Star Excellence in Energy Star Promotion Award for its energy-efficient homes and consumer-education programs. Named to the list of Americas 100 Best Master-Planned Communities by Where to Retire magazine and Best Neighborhood for 55+ by Ocala magazine, On Top of the World Communities has built thousands of homes in 14 neighborhoods in this central Florida location since construction began in the 1980s. All On Top of the World homes are steelreinforced concrete block construction, and every home meets or exceeds Energy Star guidelines ... verified by independent inspectors. In fact, On Top of the World is Floridas first active-adult community to receive 100 percent Energy Star qualification on all new homes. For more details, visit OnTopoftheWorld.com.

Friday, July 15, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com H as the long-running political controversy in Washington really been about debt and deficits, spending and taxes? Yes and no. The real conflict is about our two welfare states the visible and the hidden. The visible welfare state had two periods of growth. The first was the great depression (19291941). During the presidency of Franklin Roosevelt, the Social Security Act was adopted. The second period of visible welfare growth was the great society (1964). Persuasive president Lyndon Johnson charmed and strong-armed Congress into passing Medicare, Medicaid, the War on Poverty, and a significant number of social services and training programs. Visible social welfare programs have always been met with significant controversy leading up to adoption. Once adopted, visible welfare programs acquire legions of dedicated immediate and future beneficiaries, whom politicians dare not antagonize. In Washington talk politicians are warned not to touch the third rail. By contrast, hidden welfare benefits began long before enactment of the income tax amendment and the Revenue Act of 1913. That was the year in which the Treasury Department created Form 1040 and millions of Americans began their lifelong dislike for the Internal Revenue Service. Ever since 1913, Congress has been creating goodies in the tax code and hundreds of other federal laws money paid out, such as the earned income credit, and money which will never be collected exemptions, incentives, subsidies, and other targeted benefits. Hidden welfare benefits affect housing, transportation, health care, agriculture, safety, finance, defense, education, banking, and small businesses. A few clever Americans sell books which suggest many ways to get free money from the federal treasury. Some hidden welfare benefits, such as food stamps and agricultural price supports are called entitlements. That means Congress has created a legal right for certain classes of people to apply for the benefits without further permission. The problem with entitlements is inability to control annual costs. It is difficult to know in advance the exact number of beneficiaries and total annual spending. For more than 20 years entitlements have accounted for more than half of all federal spending. Add interest on the national debt and the costs of national defense, and Congress has only 25 percent of annual spending in which to find cutbacks. As a practical matter, if Congress were to cancel all the programs funded by the last 25 percent of spending, they would still be unable to balance the budget. The federal government is currently borrowing 38 percent of annual spending. Under present laws and practices, the number will continue to rise indefinitely. Congress and the president have yet to demonstrate a willingness to change the structure of taxing and spending. Instead they keep rearranging the chairs on the Titanic, with blind hope that the ship of state wont hit an immovable object and begin to sink before the next election. They call it kicking the can down the road. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, July 15, 2011 W hile watching Channel 9 news out of Orlando Monday evening, a feeling of fear suddenly came over me as I watched one of their interviews. It involved something I thought Id never see again. What was the cause of this trepidation? Alan Grayson is running for Congress again. I have to admit, I thought we were through with this guy, especially after the universal bashing he received during his campaign loss to Daniel Webster last year. He received only 38 percent of the vote, so you cant say he barely lost. Graysons one-term tenure in Congress was filled with controversy, and his campaign ads last year were at times disturbing. Then he produced a DVD of all his accomplishments, which only served to get people angrier at him. The one big hope we have here in Marion County is that when the Legislature finishes the redistricting process, that Grayson will be running for a seat that doesnt include us. That way we wont have to worry about him getting elected and representing us, although I feel theres little reason to fear that. MORE ON ELECTIONS: Lest you think its too early to worry about the 2012 elections (as I do), you might change your mind when you go to the Florida Division of Elections website and click on candidates, then on 2012 elections. Youll see a list of all the people who are already listed as active in the races, including all the incumbents who are eligible (some state legislators face term limits). Thats particularly amazing since the state legislative and Congressional districts have yet to be determined. Re-apportionment hearings are going on right now. Two were scheduled for this past Wednesday, one in The Villages and another in Gainesville. Does that tell you something about Marion Countys influence in the Legislature? Hopefully, when the new districts are drawn, well have a little more say-so in the state. There are tighter rules that have to be followed as a result of last years state constitutional amendments. Marion County is one of the biggest counties in the state. We deserve better representation, particularly in the state Senate. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

W hen it comes to the public, Gov. Rick Scott cant win for losing. Once again, he is pushing an unpopular proposal that runs counter to the will of the people. His staff realized that, however, and temporarily at least pulled the plug Friday night. The proposal is for the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) state lands division to raise revenue by allowing privately designed, built and operated RV campgrounds in state parks. While public-private partnerships can be successful in certain venues, private RV campgrounds in Floridas state parks would be a radical departure from a management policy that has focused for generations on the natural beauty and serenity of the Real Florida. The success of this policy is validated by Floridas state park system earning the distinction of being Americas first two-time recipient of the Gold Medal Award, the highest award a parks and recreation agency can receive from the American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration. Nonetheless, the state lands division gained approval from DEPs Acquisition and Restoration Council to expeditiously proceed with the planning for private campgrounds in as many as 56 parks. Given the angry outcry by local residents and officials at the first four parks targeted Wakulla Springs, DeLeon Springs, Fanning Springs and Honeymoon Island more thought and public debate are needed to weigh the consequences of treating our state parks as commodities. DEP Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. recognized that. Friday evening, he sent a letter to state Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, saying the department, with Scotts approval, would not move forward on the Honeymoon Island plan and would evaluate how to proceed on plans for the three other parks. This is a smart decision on DEPs part. The developmental impact of RV campsites on our state parks is more than just the campsites themselves. Roads, restroom facilities, bathhouses, electrical hookups, playgrounds and other amenities are part and parcel. The character-changing impact of such a radical shift in policy on Floridas most treasured natural assets and the value Floridians place on them, as demonstrated by the citizen outcry, demand a full public vetting of the proposal. Gov. Scott needs to make his case to the public as to why Floridas unspoiled state parks should be sacrificed in the interest of raising state revenue. To date, Gov. Scott has behaved more like a chief executive of a for-profit enterprise interested only in the bottom line. As the chief executive of Florida, however, he is urged to respect the will of the people by preserving the Real Florida of the award-winning park system.Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Friday, July 15, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, July 15, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Casey Anthony is not guiltyWhat do people not understand about the caption, Casey Anthony not guilty? To find anyone guilty of a crime you must have five things present: Who, what, where, when, why and with what. In the Anthony case we know the who, Caylee Anthony. Beyond that, we do not know the what, where, when, why or with what as a murder weapon. For people to criticize a jury for not proving anyone guilty with that little information is what Ive suspected all along and that is, the average American is not too bright. Bill Ford Ocala Common sense Like others in the minority agreeing with this verdict you failed to mention common sense. True, the evidence was circumstantial with the delay in finding the body but the evidence was still strong enough for a conviction, particularly on the second and third counts. That said, that out-of-town jury came down with a slap on the wrist verdict that threw little Caylee back into that swamp. While you gave Jose Baez a gold star, the prosecution team of Ashton and Burdick did a great job despite your opinion. Casey days is being released on a Sunday. Yes! Another Sunday that will live in infamy. Bob Cronin Oak RunJury had no choiceI am writing to the 12 jurors that decided Casey Anthonys fate. I want to apologize for the people who have made threats and have such hatred. I am sure after they have time to calm down and cool off they will see that you had no other choice. You have proved that we can have a fair jury in this country. You were not given any other option and the state did not give you the evidence you needed to render a guilty verdict. We all know what a liar she is but that didnt count, we know that she knew what happened but wouldnt say, cant convict her for that, Karma will get her eventually same as OJ got his. I really hope the people will see this was the only decision you could make with the evidence you did not have. It is good to know there are honest people who can be our jurors and not people who really dont care one way or the other. I will pray and hope that you do not get any more aggravation for your decision. We do live in the USA and we are not a third world country yet. Thank you. Pam Lee Ocala Chipping (smashing) away at Americas good foundationIts astounding how blatant liberal lies have become: A few weeks ago, there was a challenge to anyone with some semblance of honesty and common sense to do a little research about Americas founding supposedly and laughably not a Christian nation, as our great leader now polluting the White House would say, while making the absurd claim that hes Christian (while the next minute telling the Muslims and other anti-Christ fools that hes Muslim or something else that isnt Christian.) OK, Ive done a little research: George Washington: It is impossible to govern the world without God and the Bible. John Adams: Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people (sorry ACLU immoral fools); it is wholly inadequate for the government of any other. Patrick Henry: It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians. Noah Webster (writer of Websters dictionary that worthless liars want to get rid of): Almost all the civil liberty now enjoyed in the world owes its origin to the principles of Christian religion (current day fools hate Christianity, and thus hate liberty. These liberal brains would rather have no liberty, and thus, be slaves! Thats what they pretend; in reality, they want you to be their slave). The religion which has introduced civil liberty is the religion of Christ and His apostles. This is the genuine Christianity, and to this we owe our free constitutions of government. Benjamin Rush: Let the children be carefully instructed in the principles and obligations of the Christian religion. This is the most essential part of education. The great enemy of the salvation of man, in my opinion, never invented a more effectual means of removing Christianity from the world than by persuading mankind it was improper to read the Bible in our schools. (Does the ACLU and other anti-Christ trash ring a bell?) Thomas Jefferson (supposedly the supporter of the separation of church and state crowd of anti-Christ liars): My views are the result of a lifetime of inquiry (something superficial liberal fools would never endeavor: a lifetime seeking of truth) and reflection and very different from the anti-Christian system imputed to me by those who know nothing of my opinions. To the corruption of Christianity, I am indeed opposed, but not to the genuine precepts of Jesus Himself. I am a Christian in the only sense in which He wished anyone to be sincerely attached to His doctrines in preference to all others. Quite a mouthful: I doubt that any liberal liar could make it through reading that far, or thinking that far. Yet, they, with all adamancy, proclaim how much they understand Jefferson. Sorry libs, I cant help but laugh at what you think you understand! On the other hand, Im hoping that your insanity doesnt infect the entirety of America, so that it continues to crumble under Obama and Hillary Clinton. If thats what you want, youll get what you deserve, in spades! Paul Zeigler Ocala Casey AnthonyTo the editor: Your analysis of the trial is quite faulty. Your point about the meter reader shows poor police investigation (hampered by Casey Anthonys lies that had the police looking for a missing child not a dead body) not a botched prosecution. The forensic testimony was necessary to provide a connection of a decayed body to the Anthony car. None of the prosecutions forensic testimony was clearly refuted. In fact, after cross-examination of defense experts, there was agreement on the states conclusions. Im sure that many murder cases are successfully prosecuted without a murder weapon, location and time of death. Short of a time recorded video, think of how difficult it is to establish those things since most murders are committed with an attempt to conceal incriminating evidence. What better concealment than delaying discovery until a childs body has become a skeleton, ravaged by animals. The absence of reasonable doubt does not require concrete evidence. The jury cannot be overwhelmed by the fact that there were seven counts. If anything, it should make them more deliberate. And subsequent reporting tells that the initial vote was not 12-0 for guilty but at one point 6-6 on at least one of the serious charges. I hope that the jury took their responsibilities more seriously than to vote on whether one attorney appeared nervous and the other at ease. This had to do with the murder of a child not who was more engaging. Your comments about that show a very shallow perspective. Dan Drake Ocala Financial film The Academy Award winning documentary Inside Job gives us an excellent examination of the people, the organizations and the laws that permitted the worldwide financial meltdown of 2007/08. It also covers the 2009 attempts to bail out and protect most of the richest players in this disaster. The meltdown has an estimated cost of $20 trillion in damages worldwide. The film shows the terrible impact of the high unemployment and business failures this get rich quick scheme had on average people around the world.

The film interviews many people in business, banking, insurance, education and the government. It also names many more people in these activities who declined to be interviewed. Graphics and a narrators voice make this complex subject easy to understand and the upbeat background music will keep your attention. The film is divided into time sequenced segments and each segment shows how the scheme continued to flourish, under different leaders and schemers, until it could no longer sustain itself. The scheme started in this country with the invention of an investment product that was derived from a very large number subprime mortgages guaranteed by the government. The last segment is the most telling. It examines where we are today and who the leaders are in the financial organizations that still control our economy. The film was directed by Charles Ferguson and required many interviews and an extensive amount of research. You can borrow it in DVD format from the Marion LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 County Public Library. Your first viewing should make you mad. Your second should convince you to vote in 2012. Bill Farthing, Ocala Does anyone care?What matters? Where are our priorities? The world is on the verge of financial collapse, and a political upheaval, and a possible holocaust. But, does anyone take note of these facts? Very few. Very, very few. You could ignite an atomic bomb under people, and they would just yawn. However, televise a murder trial, and people become transfixed. Some are greatly inconvenienced when it becomes necessary to visit even the doctor. While waiting in a doctors office, for a friend, this is what transpired: Patient enters spouting Why isnt that TV on? I am missing the trial. I will have to be briefed by someone on what I am missing. Next patient: Hope they can get me in quickly, I am missing the trial. Patient taken in quickly, and states: Good now I wont miss much of the trial. This dialogue is heard repeatedly, in various locations. Anywhere, any place, any time. The obsession was palpable. The coverage was so over saturated, it was sickening. It seems each time one of these incidents occur the media notches up the hype, and the public follows right along. Where will it all end? What is this fascination with mayhem, all about? Our country is in dire straits. Does anybody care? D.I. Larson Ocala In defense of the richAt a recent press conference, President Obama said that the United States could significantly reduce its crippling debt by raising taxes on the rich, defined by the president as individuals earning more than $200,000 a year and households with annual incomes above $250,000. While complaining that these people fly in corporate jets, he failed to mention that they make up only 2 or 3 percent of the population and already pay about 40 percent in federal taxes. These are also the very people who have the talent and courage to take the risks and create the small businesses that provide more than 75 percent of the jobs in this country. There are those among us whose minds are so small that they equate rich with the Ponzischeme criminal Bernie Madoff and others of his ilk. They fail to recognize that the vast majority of wealthy people in our society became that way through their own honest and brave efforts, whose successes produced millions of decent jobs which made this country the strongest and best in the world. Time is running short for our Constitutional republic. This cynical attack on the so-called rich has fearsome implications in its obvious attempt to separate and weaken the American people through wealth envy and class warfare, an age-old Communist strategy to divide the people and turn them against each other, making them easier to subjugate. Tragically, too many of us fall into this trap of sinister manipulation. Some of us are living difficult lives; most of us live in comfort and ease; a few will become wealthy. But all Americans have the choices and the opportunities. Abraham Lincoln once said, That some should be rich shows that others may become rich and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another, but let him work diligently to build one for himself. Joseph Paterek Ocala Junior Cotillon seeks director for MarionThe National League of Junior Cotillons (NLJC), a program of etiquette, character education, and social dance training for middle and junior high school students, has announced plans to establish its national program in Marion County. Elizabeth Anne Winters, NLJC National Director, said, We will be selecting a director for a local chapter who will receive complete training and an exclusive territory for expansion. The organization currently has directors operating hundreds of chapters in 34 states. This program is making a positive impact on students across the nation and we are delighted to know that more young people in this area will have the opportunity for this vital training, Winters said. The program currently has active chapters statewide. The purpose of the NLJC program is to give students instruction and practice in the courtesies that make life more pleasant for them and those around them. Students actively learn courtesies through a creative method employing role playing, skits, and games. Standard ballroom and line dancing is taught using nationally approved top 40 music. In addition to the usual courtesies connected with dancing and etiquette, character instruction is also provided regarding the following: honor, respect, ethics, sportsmanship, acknowledgments of gifts, behavior at cultural and civic events, correspondence, inter-action in groups, introductions, paying and receiving compliments, receiving lines, table manners, instructional dinners, electronic etiquette, cell phone courtesy, and many other areas of social conduct. The program, with headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina, was established in 1979 and has licensed local cotillions nationwide. The cotillion includes monthly classes plus a Holly Ball and Spring Ball, and instructional three, five, and seven course dinners. Says Winters, The program has met with equal success in metropolitan areas including Atlanta, Orlando, Minneapolis, Houston, and in small communities across the country. We believe it will be an important addition to the training of young people in this area. Applications or nominations for cotillion director are currently being received. For additional information call 1-800-633-7947, visit our award winning website at www.nljc.com, or email to cotillions@nljc.com. T he next Cherrywood Democratic Club meeting is July 15 at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse card room. Refreshments will be served. We are most fortunate to have as our special guest Barbara Fitos. She has an extensive knowledge of the banking industry and is a former county commissioner and is well versed in politics and she will be able to advise us on our future actions. This month we shall be discussing the state of the U.S. Economy. The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission Report places the blame on 1) Wall Street Bankers. 2) Regulations. 3) Government Officials and even 4) Home Owners, all share the blame. The Commission concluded that the crisis was avoidable and was caused by: 1)Widespread failure of financial regulation. 2)The Federal Reserve to stem the tide of toxic mortgages. 3)Excessive borrowing and risk by households and Wall Street. 4)Systemic breaches of accountability and ethics. Now there are 26 million Americans out of work. Nearly $11 trillion in household wealth vanished. The collateral damage has been real people and real communities. The collapse of the housing bubble triggered the 2008 collapse. At the same time financial service firms constituted an increasingly disproportionate part of the U.S. economy, 27 percent of all corporate profits in the U.S. compared with 15 percent in 1980. We ask that you remember our young people serving our country and if you are able to make a donation toward their needs you may do so through our secretary to active service personnel in Afghanistan and Iraq. Your donation will be gratefully appreciated.

Friday, July 15, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, July 15, 2011 www.smcitizen.com I belong to a liberal Jewish congregation and often I am called upon to read or to recite the blessings before reading the Torah. This is a very special honor because much reverence and respect is given to the Torah, the most sacred object in Judaism. For me, as a woman, this honor is especially significant because not too many years ago and within my memory, women were not allowed to come up to the Torah for this honor. In more traditional circles, this is still true, but I believe that it is a right and privilege for women to participate and I am glad to see that the more liberal branches give us this opportunity. When I am called upon for this honor, called an alliyah, I feel I am part of a continuum that stretches back 3,200 years to the experience at Sinai. I feel I am part of a chain that connects me to all those who have come before me and all those who will come after me in this never ending strand that is my connection to my people. With these thoughts in mind, I read with great interest about a recent finding of Biblical literature. It seems that a bit of writing was found on a pottery shard during excavations at Khirbet Qeiyafa, a site near Israels Elah valley, the place the Bible says that David slew Goliath. Archeologist Yosef Garfinkel of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem carried out the archeological findings. What was so astonishing about the find was that it now appears that the fragment with the earliest known specimen of Hebrew writing is older than any previously discovered. This particular find dates from the 10th century B.C.E, which indicates that the Kingdom of Israel already existed in this era and so predates the oldest finds so far by four centuries. Gerson Gallil, a professor of Hebrew studies at the University of Haifa in Israel, deciphered the text and believes at least some of the Biblical texts were written during this period making parts of the Bible older than first believed. At first, the ancient language was not thought to be Hebrew but Professor Gallil was able to prove that the fragment indeed was ancient Hebrew by studying the linguistic makeup of the writing and finding key words that are specific to Hebrew and by deciphering the Hebrew cultural content. Specific uses of certain verbs, which are characteristic of Hebrew and other words, found in other languages, but originate in Hebrew such as the word for widow, almanah, gave clues as to the Hebraic origin of the piece. What was written on the trapezoid shaped piece approximately 6 inches by 6.5 inches is a writing on how one should treat slaves, widows and orphans. Though missing letters, the fragmented phrases admonish people to worship the Lord, judge the slave, widow, orphan and stranger. Plead for the infant, poor and widow. Rehabilitate the poor at the hands of the king and to protect the poor and the slave and support the stranger. The phrases are similar to Isaiah 1:17; Psalms 72:3 and Exodus 23:3 but do not appear to be direct copies. I find it fascinating to note that my ancestors thousands of years ago already had statements about social justice and that these very statements continue to form the backbone of Jewish ethical living. While the oldest known Torah still in use is about 1,000 years old and the one my congregation uses is probably only a couple of years old, it is nice to know that the ancient tradition with its words of wisdom and practicality live on in us today.(Source: LiveScience.com) How old is old?

RELIGION A murder trial in our area that gained international attention involved a young woman accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter. She was facing four counts of murder including the death penalty. After the jury deliberated, they came back and exonerated her on all four counts. The jurys verdict was, not guilty. As far as the law is concerned, this woman is not guilty of the crime she was accused. I say, as far as the law is concerned, but not as far as the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is concerned. For some reason she took an interest in this case and followed it quite faithfully. Fortunately, I did not have to follow this closely, my wife kept me up to date on all of the details. I did listen to some of the news reports, which only served to confuse me on this whole matter. Its amazing how people who know nothing about the law and have never studied law seem to know more about the law then lawyers and judges. I think the only other profession where the layman knows more than the one who has studied it for years is a minister. Personally, I am uncomfortable being in the same category as a bunch of lawyers. Im thinking of suing. While I am thinking about lawyers, isnt it strange that everybody hates lawyers until they need a lawyer? Crooked is as crooked thinks. Spill a cup of hot coffee on your lap while driving and who ya goin call? Not a doctor but a lawyer. Of course, the person that ought to be sued is the person who was drinking hot coffee while driving. Arent mothers teaching their kids anything these days? When an accident occurs, the first thing people think of calling is, not the police, not a tow truck, but a lawyer. I wonder what these lawyers did before cell phones. I would not be surprised to discover that behind the cell phone phenomena are a bunch of lawyers. We have something in our country that says a person is innocent until proven guilty. What I want to know is, what do you call a person who has been proven not guilty? Of course, it is all in the eyes of the beholder. It is too bad the jury in this recent case did not have an opportunity to hear my wife pontificate on this case. They may have come up with a different verdict. Nevertheless, the not guilty verdict was issued and that, as they say, is that. Then my wife said something that spun my brain just a wee bit. What is the difference between being not guilty and innocent? Well, that puts things in a different light. It is entirely possible to be not guilty as far as the law is concerned and on the other hand not be innocent, either. Every husband knows what I am talking about here. No matter how hard he tries to prove he is not guilty, he never arrives at that euphoric state of being innocent. After being married as long as I have been, I settle for those brief occasions when my wife considers me not guilty. I used to fight for being declared innocent by my better half, but I am willing to be considered not guilty if that closes the matter. Nothing like closing the matter so I can move on to the next issue. Sometimes the verdict of not guilty is because someone has not caught you in the act but you still may not be innocent. Take the Apple fritter incident this past week. My good wife could not prove I was guilty of eating an apple fritter but she also knew I was not innocent of it either. I am willing to settle for not guilty. I was thinking about this recent murder case and it dawned on me that what seems obvious to one person might not be obvious at all to another person. Almost like looking in a mirror. When I raise my right hand, the object in the mirror raises its left hand. When I wink my right eye, the person in the mirror winks his left eye. The only consolation I have about this mirror business is that I am not quite as ugly as the person in the mirror. Right here is where I plead the fifth. It is easy to jump to a conclusion when you do not have all of the facts pertaining to the situation at hand. My wife has been guilty of this in the past. Before collecting all of the evidence about a situation, she jumps to the conclusion that I am guilty. The problem with this is, I usually am guilty. Right now justice is a rather fickle thing. We can look forward to a time when justice will be perfect. The Bible says, And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more (Jeremiah 31:34 KJV). And, As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us (Psalms 103:12 KJV). Not guilty or innocent is not the real issue, but forgiveness. The Rev. James L.

Debbie Branson-Scott giving the Paul Harris presentation. Jared Reddick, secretary, receiving a certificate and a polo shirt. 'Long Lost is an undemanding read with a limited number of characters easy to track. In this book Corbens protagonist, sports and entertainment rep and part-time sleuth Myron Bolivar goes international after an old flame, Terese Collins, summons him to Paris for an unnamed emergency. The delectable Terese is so needy that she relies on Myron to the point of suffocation. It seems shes received a brief, ominous call from ex-husband Rick alerting her to an urgent, ambiguous danger. Something strikes Myron as very off about the whole thing, especially with Paris police dogging their every move. When they are not avoiding police or escaping attacks from scary, darkskinned men, Terese fills in Bolivar about her life since their torrid affair 10 years earlier. Tearfully, she recounts her struggles to get pregnant, the miracle of her daughters birth, and the tragic accident that took her childs life: I dont think a day has gone by in the last 10 years when I dont try to imagine what shed be like right now. Seventeen. Shed be getting ready for college. When Rick is found murdered, Terese becomes a suspect. More intriguing, however, is the young, blond girl who escapes the crime scene. Could she possibly be Tereses daughter? The trail takes Myron to London and a rendezvous with good friend Win. As a team they piece together the puzzle. This will involve grave digging, spooky mansions, fertility clinics, and more grisly murders before they reach a conclusion. Ultimately, theyll encounter extremists of a peculiar stripe who recruit Nordic looking young people with ice-blue eyes and blond hair. Long Lost is a breeze to read. Farfetched but fun.

Friday, July 15, 2011 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 14 ~ Friday, July 15, 2011 www.smcitizen.com I belong to a liberal Jewish congregation and often I am called upon to read or to recite the blessings before reading the Torah. This is a very special honor because much reverence and respect is given to the Torah, the most sacred object in Judaism. For me, as a woman, this honor is especially significant because not too many years ago and within my memory, women were not allowed to come up to the Torah for this honor. In more traditional circles, this is still true, but I believe that it is a right and privilege for women to participate and I am glad to see that the more liberal branches give us this opportunity. When I am called upon for this honor, called an alliyah, I feel I am part of a continuum that stretches back 3,200 years to the experience at Sinai. I feel I am part of a chain that connects me to all those who have come before me and all those who will come after me in this never ending strand that is my connection to my people. With these thoughts in mind, I read with great interest about a recent finding of Biblical literature. It seems that a bit of writing was found on a pottery shard during excavations at Khirbet Qeiyafa, a site near Israels Elah valley, the place the Bible says that David slew Goliath. Archeologist Yosef Garfinkel of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem carried out the archeological findings. What was so astonishing about the find was that it now appears that the fragment with the earliest known specimen of Hebrew writing is older than any previously discovered. This particular find dates from the 10th century B.C.E, which indicates that the Kingdom of Israel already existed in this era and so predates the oldest finds so far by four centuries. Gerson Gallil, a professor of Hebrew studies at the University of Haifa in Israel, deciphered the text and believes at least some of the Biblical texts were written during this period making parts of the Bible older than first believed. At first, the ancient language was not thought to be Hebrew but Professor Gallil was able to prove that the fragment indeed was ancient Hebrew by studying the linguistic makeup of the writing and finding key words that are specific to Hebrew and by deciphering the Hebrew cultural content. Specific uses of certain verbs, which are characteristic of Hebrew and other words, found in other languages, but originate in Hebrew such as the word for widow, almanah, gave clues as to the Hebraic origin of the piece. What was written on the trapezoid shaped piece approximately 6 inches by 6.5 inches is a writing on how one should treat slaves, widows and orphans. Though missing letters, the fragmented phrases admonish people to worship the Lord, judge the slave, widow, orphan and stranger. Plead for the infant, poor and widow. Rehabilitate the poor at the hands of the king and to protect the poor and the slave and support the stranger. The phrases are similar to Isaiah 1:17; Psalms 72:3 and Exodus 23:3 but do not appear to be direct copies. I find it fascinating to note that my ancestors thousands of years ago already had statements about social justice and that these very statements continue to form the backbone of Jewish ethical living. While the oldest known Torah still in use is about 1,000 years old and the one my congregation uses is probably only a couple of years old, it is nice to know that the ancient tradition with its words of wisdom and practicality live on in us today.(Source: LiveScience.com) How old is old?

RELIGION A murder trial in our area that gained international attention involved a young woman accused of murdering her 2-year-old daughter. She was facing four counts of murder including the death penalty. After the jury deliberated, they came back and exonerated her on all four counts. The jurys verdict was, not guilty. As far as the law is concerned, this woman is not guilty of the crime she was accused. I say, as far as the law is concerned, but not as far as the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is concerned. For some reason she took an interest in this case and followed it quite faithfully. Fortunately, I did not have to follow this closely, my wife kept me up to date on all of the details. I did listen to some of the news reports, which only served to confuse me on this whole matter. Its amazing how people who know nothing about the law and have never studied law seem to know more about the law then lawyers and judges. I think the only other profession where the layman knows more than the one who has studied it for years is a minister. Personally, I am uncomfortable being in the same category as a bunch of lawyers. Im thinking of suing. While I am thinking about lawyers, isnt it strange that everybody hates lawyers until they need a lawyer? Crooked is as crooked thinks. Spill a cup of hot coffee on your lap while driving and who ya goin call? Not a doctor but a lawyer. Of course, the person that ought to be sued is the person who was drinking hot coffee while driving. Arent mothers teaching their kids anything these days? When an accident occurs, the first thing people think of calling is, not the police, not a tow truck, but a lawyer. I wonder what these lawyers did before cell phones. I would not be surprised to discover that behind the cell phone phenomena are a bunch of lawyers. We have something in our country that says a person is innocent until proven guilty. What I want to know is, what do you call a person who has been proven not guilty? Of course, it is all in the eyes of the beholder. It is too bad the jury in this recent case did not have an opportunity to hear my wife pontificate on this case. They may have come up with a different verdict. Nevertheless, the not guilty verdict was issued and that, as they say, is that. Then my wife said something that spun my brain just a wee bit. What is the difference between being not guilty and innocent? Well, that puts things in a different light. It is entirely possible to be not guilty as far as the law is concerned and on the other hand not be innocent, either. Every husband knows what I am talking about here. No matter how hard he tries to prove he is not guilty, he never arrives at that euphoric state of being innocent. After being married as long as I have been, I settle for those brief occasions when my wife considers me not guilty. I used to fight for being declared innocent by my better half, but I am willing to be considered not guilty if that closes the matter. Nothing like closing the matter so I can move on to the next issue. Sometimes the verdict of not guilty is because someone has not caught you in the act but you still may not be innocent. Take the Apple fritter incident this past week. My good wife could not prove I was guilty of eating an apple fritter but she also knew I was not innocent of it either. I am willing to settle for not guilty. I was thinking about this recent murder case and it dawned on me that what seems obvious to one person might not be obvious at all to another person. Almost like looking in a mirror. When I raise my right hand, the object in the mirror raises its left hand. When I wink my right eye, the person in the mirror winks his left eye. The only consolation I have about this mirror business is that I am not quite as ugly as the person in the mirror. Right here is where I plead the fifth. It is easy to jump to a conclusion when you do not have all of the facts pertaining to the situation at hand. My wife has been guilty of this in the past. Before collecting all of the evidence about a situation, she jumps to the conclusion that I am guilty. The problem with this is, I usually am guilty. Right now justice is a rather fickle thing. We can look forward to a time when justice will be perfect. The Bible says, And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more (Jeremiah 31:34 KJV). And, As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us (Psalms 103:12 KJV). Not guilty or innocent is not the real issue, but forgiveness. The Rev. James L.

Friday, July 15, 2011 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, July 15, 2011 www.smcitizen.com fessionals that were involved. The film interviews many people in business, banking, insurance, education and the government. It also names many more people in these activities who declined to be interviewed. Graphics and a narrators voice make this complex subject easy to understand and the upbeat background music will keep your attention. The film is divided into time sequenced segments and each segment shows how the scheme continued to flourish, under different leaders and schemers, until it could no longer sustain itself. The scheme started in this country with the invention of an investment product that was derived from a very large number subprime mortgages guaranteed by the government. The last segment is the most telling. It examines where we are today and who the leaders are in the financial organizations that still control our economy. The film was directed by Charles Ferguson and required many interviews and an extensive amount of research. You can borrow it in DVD format from the Marion LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 County Public Library. Your first viewing should make you mad. Your second should convince you to vote in 2012. Bill Farthing, Ocala Does anyone care?What matters? Where are our priorities? The world is on the verge of financial collapse, and a political upheaval, and a possible holocaust. But, does anyone take note of these facts? Very few. Very, very few. You could ignite an atomic bomb under people, and they would just yawn. However, televise a murder trial, and people become transfixed. Some are greatly inconvenienced when it becomes necessary to visit even the doctor. While waiting in a doctors office, for a friend, this is what transpired: Patient enters spouting Why isnt that TV on? I am missing the trial. I will have to be briefed by someone on what I am missing. Next patient: Hope they can get me in quickly, I am missing the trial. Patient taken in quickly, and states: Good now I wont miss much of the trial. This dialogue is heard repeatedly, in various locations. Anywhere, any place, any time. The obsession was palpable. The coverage was so over saturated, it was sickening. It seems each time one of these incidents occur the media notches up the hype, and the public follows right along. Where will it all end? What is this fascination with mayhem, all about? Our country is in dire straits. Does anybody care? D.I. Larson Ocala In defense of the richAt a recent press conference, President Obama said that the United States could significantly reduce its crippling debt by raising taxes on the rich, defined by the president as individuals earning more than $200,000 a year and households with annual incomes above $250,000. While complaining that these people fly in corporate jets, he failed to mention that they make up only 2 or 3 percent of the population and already pay about 40 percent in federal taxes. These are also the very people who have the talent and courage to take the risks and create the small businesses that provide more than 75 percent of the jobs in this country. There are those among us whose minds are so small that they equate rich with the Ponzischeme criminal Bernie Madoff and others of his ilk. They fail to recognize that the vast majority of wealthy people in our society became that way through their own honest and brave efforts, whose successes produced millions of decent jobs which made this country the strongest and best in the world. Time is running short for our Constitutional republic. This cynical attack on the so-called rich has fearsome implications in its obvious attempt to separate and weaken the American people through wealth envy and class warfare, an age-old Communist strategy to divide the people and turn them against each other, making them easier to subjugate. Tragically, too many of us fall into this trap of sinister manipulation. Some of us are living difficult lives; most of us live in comfort and ease; a few will become wealthy. But all Americans have the choices and the opportunities. Abraham Lincoln once said, That some should be rich shows that others may become rich and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another, but let him work diligently to build one for himself. Joseph Paterek Ocala Junior Cotillon seeks director for MarionThe National League of Junior Cotillons (NLJC), a program of etiquette, character education, and social dance training for middle and junior high school students, has announced plans to establish its national program in Marion County. Elizabeth Anne Winters, NLJC National Director, said, We will be selecting a director for a local chapter who will receive complete training and an exclusive territory for expansion. The organization currently has directors operating hundreds of chapters in 34 states. This program is making a positive impact on students across the nation and we are delighted to know that more young people in this area will have the opportunity for this vital training, Winters said. The program currently has active chapters statewide. The purpose of the NLJC program is to give students instruction and practice in the courtesies that make life more pleasant for them and those around them. Students actively learn courtesies through a creative method employing role playing, skits, and games. Standard ballroom and line dancing is taught using nationally approved top 40 music. In addition to the usual courtesies connected with dancing and etiquette, character instruction is also provided regarding the following: honor, respect, ethics, sportsmanship, acknowledgments of gifts, behavior at cultural and civic events, correspondence, inter-action in groups, introductions, paying and receiving compliments, receiving lines, table manners, instructional dinners, electronic etiquette, cell phone courtesy, and many other areas of social conduct. The program, with headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina, was established in 1979 and has licensed local cotillions nationwide. The cotillion includes monthly classes plus a Holly Ball and Spring Ball, and instructional three, five, and seven course dinners. Says Winters, The program has met with equal success in metropolitan areas including Atlanta, Orlando, Minneapolis, Houston, and in small communities across the country. We believe it will be an important addition to the training of young people in this area. Applications or nominations for cotillion director are currently being received. For additional information call 1-800-633-7947, visit our award winning website at www.nljc.com, or email to cotillions@nljc.com. T he next Cherrywood Democratic Club meeting is July 15 at 2 p.m. in the Clubhouse card room. Refreshments will be served. We are most fortunate to have as our special guest Barbara Fitos. She has an extensive knowledge of the banking industry and is a former county commissioner and is well versed in politics and she will be able to advise us on our future actions. This month we shall be discussing the state of the U.S. Economy. The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission Report places the blame on 1) Wall Street Bankers. 2) Regulations. 3) Government Officials and even 4) Home Owners, all share the blame. The Commission concluded that the crisis was avoidable and was caused by: 1)Widespread failure of financial regulation. 2)The Federal Reserve to stem the tide of toxic mortgages. 3)Excessive borrowing and risk by households and Wall Street. 4)Systemic breaches of accountability and ethics. Now there are 26 million Americans out of work. Nearly $11 trillion in household wealth vanished. The collateral damage has been real people and real communities. The collapse of the housing bubble triggered the 2008 collapse. At the same time financial service firms constituted an increasingly disproportionate part of the U.S. economy, 27 percent of all corporate profits in the U.S. compared with 15 percent in 1980. We ask that you remember our young people serving our country and if you are able to make a donation toward their needs you may do so through our secretary to active service personnel in Afghanistan and Iraq. Your donation will be gratefully appreciated.

Friday, July 15, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, July 15, 2011 www.smcitizen.com Attend the worship service of your choice... LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Casey Anthony is not guiltyWhat do people not understand about the caption, Casey Anthony not guilty? To find anyone guilty of a crime you must have five things present: Who, what, where, when, why and with what. In the Anthony case we know the who, Caylee Anthony. Beyond that, we do not know the what, where, when, why or with what as a murder weapon. For people to criticize a jury for not proving anyone guilty with that little information is what Ive suspected all along and that is, the average American is not too bright. Bill Ford Ocala Common sense Like others in the minority agreeing with this verdict you failed to mention common sense. True, the evidence was circumstantial with the delay in finding the body but the evidence was still strong enough for a conviction, particularly on the second and third counts. That said, that out-of-town jury came down with a slap on the wrist verdict that threw little Caylee back into that swamp. While you gave Jose Baez a gold star, the prosecution team of Ashton and Burdick did a great job despite your opinion. Casey days is being released on a Sunday. Yes! Another Sunday that will live in infamy. Bob Cronin Oak RunJury had no choiceI am writing to the 12 jurors that decided Casey Anthonys fate. I want to apologize for the people who have made threats and have such hatred. I am sure after they have time to calm down and cool off they will see that you had no other choice. You have proved that we can have a fair jury in this country. You were not given any other option and the state did not give you the evidence you needed to render a guilty verdict. We all know what a liar she is but that didnt count, we know that she knew what happened but wouldnt say, cant convict her for that, Karma will get her eventually same as OJ got his. I really hope the people will see this was the only decision you could make with the evidence you did not have. It is good to know there are honest people who can be our jurors and not people who really dont care one way or the other. I will pray and hope that you do not get any more aggravation for your decision. We do live in the USA and we are not a third world country yet. Thank you. Pam Lee Ocala Chipping (smashing) away at Americas good foundationIts astounding how blatant liberal lies have become: A few weeks ago, there was a challenge to anyone with some semblance of honesty and common sense to do a little research about Americas founding supposedly and laughably not a Christian nation, as our great leader now polluting the White House would say, while making the absurd claim that hes Christian (while the next minute telling the Muslims and other anti-Christ fools that hes Muslim or something else that isnt Christian.) OK, Ive done a little research: George Washington: It is impossible to govern the world without God and the Bible. John Adams: Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people (sorry ACLU immoral fools); it is wholly inadequate for the government of any other. Patrick Henry: It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians. Noah Webster (writer of Websters dictionary that worthless liars want to get rid of): Almost all the civil liberty now enjoyed in the world owes its origin to the principles of Christian religion (current day fools hate Christianity, and thus hate liberty. These liberal brains would rather have no liberty, and thus, be slaves! Thats what they pretend; in reality, they want you to be their slave). The religion which has introduced civil liberty is the religion of Christ and His apostles. This is the genuine Christianity, and to this we owe our free constitutions of government. Benjamin Rush: Let the children be carefully instructed in the principles and obligations of the Christian religion. This is the most essential part of education. The great enemy of the salvation of man, in my opinion, never invented a more effectual means of removing Christianity from the world than by persuading mankind it was improper to read the Bible in our schools. (Does the ACLU and other anti-Christ trash ring a bell?) Thomas Jefferson (supposedly the supporter of the separation of church and state crowd of anti-Christ liars): My views are the result of a lifetime of inquiry (something superficial liberal fools would never endeavor: a lifetime seeking of truth) and reflection and very different from the anti-Christian system imputed to me by those who know nothing of my opinions. To the corruption of Christianity, I am indeed opposed, but not to the genuine precepts of Jesus Himself. I am a Christian in the only sense in which He wished anyone to be sincerely attached to His doctrines in preference to all others. Quite a mouthful: I doubt that any liberal liar could make it through reading that far, or thinking that far. Yet, they, with all adamancy, proclaim how much they understand Jefferson. Sorry libs, I cant help but laugh at what you think you understand! On the other hand, Im hoping that your insanity doesnt infect the entirety of America, so that it continues to crumble under Obama and Hillary Clinton. If thats what you want, youll get what you deserve, in spades! Paul Zeigler Ocala Casey AnthonyTo the editor: Your analysis of the trial is quite faulty. Your point about the meter reader shows poor police investigation (hampered by Casey Anthonys lies that had the police looking for a missing child not a dead body) not a botched prosecution. The forensic testimony was necessary to provide a connection of a decayed body to the Anthony car. None of the prosecutions forensic testimony was clearly refuted. In fact, after cross-examination of defense experts, there was agreement on the states conclusions. Im sure that many murder cases are successfully prosecuted without a murder weapon, location and time of death. Short of a time recorded video, think of how difficult it is to establish those things since most murders are committed with an attempt to conceal incriminating evidence. What better concealment than delaying discovery until a childs body has become a skeleton, ravaged by animals. The absence of reasonable doubt does not require concrete evidence. The jury cannot be overwhelmed by the fact that there were seven counts. If anything, it should make them more deliberate. And subsequent reporting tells that the initial vote was not 12-0 for guilty but at one point 6-6 on at least one of the serious charges. I hope that the jury took their responsibilities more seriously than to vote on whether one attorney appeared nervous and the other at ease. This had to do with the murder of a child not who was more engaging. Your comments about that show a very shallow perspective. Dan Drake Ocala Financial film The Academy Award winning documentary Inside Job gives us an excellent examination of the people, the organizations and the laws that permitted the worldwide financial meltdown of 2007/08. It also covers the 2009 attempts to bail out and protect most of the richest players in this disaster. The meltdown has an estimated cost of $20 trillion in damages worldwide. The film shows the terrible impact of the high unemployment and business failures this get rich quick scheme had on average people around the world.

Friday, July 15, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com H as the long-running political controversy in Washington really been about debt and deficits, spending and taxes? Yes and no. The real conflict is about our two welfare states the visible and the hidden. The visible welfare state had two periods of growth. The first was the great depression (19291941). During the presidency of Franklin Roosevelt, the Social Security Act was adopted. The second period of visible welfare growth was the great society (1964). Persuasive president Lyndon Johnson charmed and strong-armed Congress into passing Medicare, Medicaid, the War on Poverty, and a significant number of social services and training programs. Visible social welfare programs have always been met with significant controversy leading up to adoption. Once adopted, visible welfare programs acquire legions of dedicated immediate and future beneficiaries, whom politicians dare not antagonize. In Washington talk politicians are warned not to touch the third rail. By contrast, hidden welfare benefits began long before enactment of the income tax amendment and the Revenue Act of 1913. That was the year in which the Treasury Department created Form 1040 and millions of Americans began their lifelong dislike for the Internal Revenue Service. Ever since 1913, Congress has been creating goodies in the tax code and hundreds of other federal laws money paid out, such as the earned income credit, and money which will never be collected exemptions, incentives, subsidies, and other targeted benefits. Hidden welfare benefits affect housing, transportation, health care, agriculture, safety, finance, defense, education, banking, and small businesses. A few clever Americans sell books which suggest many ways to get free money from the federal treasury. Some hidden welfare benefits, such as food stamps and agricultural price supports are called entitlements. That means Congress has created a legal right for certain classes of people to apply for the benefits without further permission. The problem with entitlements is inability to control annual costs. It is difficult to know in advance the exact number of beneficiaries and total annual spending. For more than 20 years entitlements have accounted for more than half of all federal spending. Add interest on the national debt and the costs of national defense, and Congress has only 25 percent of annual spending in which to find cutbacks. As a practical matter, if Congress were to cancel all the programs funded by the last 25 percent of spending, they would still be unable to balance the budget. The federal government is currently borrowing 38 percent of annual spending. Under present laws and practices, the number will continue to rise indefinitely. Congress and the president have yet to demonstrate a willingness to change the structure of taxing and spending. Instead they keep rearranging the chairs on the Titanic, with blind hope that the ship of state wont hit an immovable object and begin to sink before the next election. They call it kicking the can down the road. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, July 15, 2011 W hile watching Channel 9 news out of Orlando Monday evening, a feeling of fear suddenly came over me as I watched one of their interviews. It involved something I thought Id never see again. What was the cause of this trepidation? Alan Grayson is running for Congress again. I have to admit, I thought we were through with this guy, especially after the universal bashing he received during his campaign loss to Daniel Webster last year. He received only 38 percent of the vote, so you cant say he barely lost. Graysons one-term tenure in Congress was filled with controversy, and his campaign ads last year were at times disturbing. Then he produced a DVD of all his accomplishments, which only served to get people angrier at him. The one big hope we have here in Marion County is that when the Legislature finishes the redistricting process, that Grayson will be running for a seat that doesnt include us. That way we wont have to worry about him getting elected and representing us, although I feel theres little reason to fear that. MORE ON ELECTIONS: Lest you think its too early to worry about the 2012 elections (as I do), you might change your mind when you go to the Florida Division of Elections website and click on candidates, then on 2012 elections. Youll see a list of all the people who are already listed as active in the races, including all the incumbents who are eligible (some state legislators face term limits). Thats particularly amazing since the state legislative and Congressional districts have yet to be determined. Re-apportionment hearings are going on right now. Two were scheduled for this past Wednesday, one in The Villages and another in Gainesville. Does that tell you something about Marion Countys influence in the Legislature? Hopefully, when the new districts are drawn, well have a little more say-so in the state. There are tighter rules that have to be followed as a result of last years state constitutional amendments. Marion County is one of the biggest counties in the state. We deserve better representation, particularly in the state Senate. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

W hen it comes to the public, Gov. Rick Scott cant win for losing. Once again, he is pushing an unpopular proposal that runs counter to the will of the people. His staff realized that, however, and temporarily at least pulled the plug Friday night. The proposal is for the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) state lands division to raise revenue by allowing privately designed, built and operated RV campgrounds in state parks. While public-private partnerships can be successful in certain venues, private RV campgrounds in Floridas state parks would be a radical departure from a management policy that has focused for generations on the natural beauty and serenity of the Real Florida. The success of this policy is validated by Floridas state park system earning the distinction of being Americas first two-time recipient of the Gold Medal Award, the highest award a parks and recreation agency can receive from the American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration. Nonetheless, the state lands division gained approval from DEPs Acquisition and Restoration Council to expeditiously proceed with the planning for private campgrounds in as many as 56 parks. Given the angry outcry by local residents and officials at the first four parks targeted Wakulla Springs, DeLeon Springs, Fanning Springs and Honeymoon Island more thought and public debate are needed to weigh the consequences of treating our state parks as commodities. DEP Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. recognized that. Friday evening, he sent a letter to state Sen. Mike Fasano, R-New Port Richey, saying the department, with Scotts approval, would not move forward on the Honeymoon Island plan and would evaluate how to proceed on plans for the three other parks. This is a smart decision on DEPs part. The developmental impact of RV campsites on our state parks is more than just the campsites themselves. Roads, restroom facilities, bathhouses, electrical hookups, playgrounds and other amenities are part and parcel. The character-changing impact of such a radical shift in policy on Floridas most treasured natural assets and the value Floridians place on them, as demonstrated by the citizen outcry, demand a full public vetting of the proposal. Gov. Scott needs to make his case to the public as to why Floridas unspoiled state parks should be sacrificed in the interest of raising state revenue. To date, Gov. Scott has behaved more like a chief executive of a for-profit enterprise interested only in the bottom line. As the chief executive of Florida, however, he is urged to respect the will of the people by preserving the Real Florida of the award-winning park system.Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Were always in need of blood OTOW HAPPENINGS As part of its ongoing push for energy conservation, independence and efficiency, On Top of the World Communities, 8445 S.W. 80th St., has installed a system of solar panels to fully power its 8,800-square-foot golf-course maintenance building at this central Florida active-adult community. Already demonstrating leadership in energy efficiency by offering solar panels as an option on every home it builds, On Top of the World is expanding its efforts to the non-residential structures on this 12,972acre property, says Kenneth D. Colen, president, On Top of the World Communities. The golf-course maintenance building was an ideal first choice. Because it faces due south, has a perfect existing roof pitch and has unobstructed access to the sun, the building was selected for installation of the 300 3-by-5-foot panels. At a cost of nearly $340,000, the system will provide 115 percent of the buildings power needed to run all electrical equipment, airconditioning, office space, water-recycling systems and to handle the buildings landscaping irrigation. Colen says that with rebates from Progress Energy and a 30 percent federal tax credit, the systems net cost was slashed to about $180,000. It is expected to save On Top of the World Communities about $10,000 in annual energy costs, while the excess 15 percent ($1,500) of energy generated will be sold back to the power company each year. The system should break even in about 15 years ... based on a 2.5 percent annual increase in power costs. From that point until the end of the solar panels 30-year life span, all generated power will be sold back to Progress Energy, reducing the long-term investment to almost zero, while providing three decades of cost-free power. This was never about short-term benefit, Colen explains. Our solar program represents our long-term commitment to energy independence and conservation for the benefit of our residents, our company and this country. Aside from the golf maintenance building, On Top of the World Communities is exploring further expansion of the solar program to other administrative and recreational structures in the community. On Top of the World Communities is the only Florida home builder and one of just six in the nation to be recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency with a 2010 Energy Star Excellence in Energy Star Promotion Award for its energy-efficient homes and consumer-education programs. Named to the list of Americas 100 Best Master-Planned Communities by Where to Retire magazine and Best Neighborhood for 55+ by Ocala magazine, On Top of the World Communities has built thousands of homes in 14 neighborhoods in this central Florida location since construction began in the 1980s. All On Top of the World homes are steelreinforced concrete block construction, and every home meets or exceeds Energy Star guidelines ... verified by independent inspectors. In fact, On Top of the World is Floridas first active-adult community to receive 100 percent Energy Star qualification on all new homes. For more details, visit OnTopoftheWorld.com.

T he Animal Center dogs of the month for July are sure to appeal to anyone who wants a puppy or a young dog. The puppy is two month old Tater, a sweet little tot with a sad story. Tater and a few siblings were dropped off at someones yard sale to be adopted. The puppies that were left at the end of the day were brought to the Animal Center for a second chance because the yard sale holder couldnt take care of all the remaining puppies. Now Tater is left and this young female Terrier mix needs a loving forever home. If youve been on the lookout for a pup to add to your family, please give this adorable girl a chance. Call or visit the Animal Center as quick as you can so that beautiful Tater doesnt have to spend one additional minute at the shelter. Then you and she can start creating a bond that will last a lifetime. If you would like a young dog for your family dog, but not a puppy, how about giving Happy the Boxer/Dalmatian mix a chance. Happy is like his name happy, energetic and playful. He may be best suited to a young family or a senior with energy and stamina to burn. This boy is a year and eight months old, so hes already been leash trained, obeys commands and doesnt try to escape from the back yard. Happy is friendly with children and other dogs, so he could fit into a multi-dog household or a home with kids or grandkids. He loves to ride in the car so you can take him on joy rides around town or a trip to the dog park. A young, energetic dog like Happy needs to be exercised regularly each day. If youre strictly a couch potato, you would need a mellower dog. If a playful companion is what makes your heart sing, Happy will happily accommodate you. Happy was also a volunteer in a project the Animal Center conducted with the University of Florida veterinary students. Students DNA tested certain dogs, including Happy. So as a bonus, if you adopt Happy, you will also get his DNA test results. Then you will accurately know his ancestry. Taters ID number is A048343 and Happys is A043306. Please give Animal Services their ID number when you call them at 352-671-8700. Both dogs are available for an adoption fee of $40. This fee includes their spay/neuter surgeries, county licenses, vaccinations and microchips. Instead of calling, you can also stop by the Center at 5701 S.E. 66th St. Lost and Found Pets The SPCA would like to go over with you the steps to take if you find a lost pet, or lose your own pet. Before we get to that, though, we cant stress enough that all pets should be microchipped and the information on the chip should always be updated if you move or change your phone number. You should also keep a collar and name tag and rabies vaccination on your pet. This will help insure that a lost pet is returned to you and that a found pet can be reunited with his family. You should call the Sheriffs office, local veterinary hospitals, and most importantly, Marion County Animal Center at 671-8700. You should also go to their website at www.marioncountyfl.org/animal.htm and click on the Lost and Found button. You can then either register that youve found a pet or lost a pet. Once you forward this information, wait for a response back asking you if all the information is correct and you wish to proceed. If you click submit, the information will be sent to the main database. When a match is found, Animal Center will contact you. If youve lost a pet, you should also visit the Animal Center at 5701 S.E. 66th Street to see if your animal is at the shelter. Some people that find a lost pet will foster them until the family is found. Others will immediately call Animal Control to report a stray and the animal will be picked up and brought to the shelter. If you live in a community, check to see if there are procedures in place to deal with this scenario. For example, you may be told to call a guard gate to report the lost or found animal and the guard will coordinate getting the parties together. If youve found a lost animal and someone contacts you and says its their pet, make sure you get proof before handing the animal over to avoid scams. Get veterinary information and check that the pet and the person belong to each other. A couple of weeks ago, the Animal Center database was put to the test. A Good Samaritan took home a lost Goldendoodle who was evidently well cared for and well behaved. Clearly, he belonged to someone. Unfortunately, he had no collar and tags and no microchip. The Samaritan called the Animal Center and registered the dog on the Lost Pet database. Three days later he got a call from the Center that there was a match. He called the people and confirmed through veterinary records that this wonderful dog was indeed their lost pet. They met at a public location and a joyful reunion ensued. This sweet dog had panicked during an intense sudden storm when he was in the backyard, jumped the fence and traveled a few miles away from home. As you can see, a pet can become lost in an instant. Make sure they have identification so you can be reunited quickly. If not, go through the procedures above to try to find them as soon as possible. SPCA News The SPCA meets the third Thursday of each month (except July and August) at 1 p.m. in Suite H at the Arbor Conference Center in On Top of the World Communities.

Although spring and summer are baseball season for many Americans to whom a grand slam is that glorious occasion of hitting a home run with the bases loaded, many will marvel more at Walker's stunning and fun accomplishment. Even though baseball is touted as our national pastime, anglers outnumber baseball players many times over. (Seventeen percent of Americans age 6 or older fish, and 5 percent play baseball, according to the Outdoor Recreation Foundation 2010 Participation Report.) "I was inspired by an article in 'Bassmaster' magazine and made it my 2011 New Year's resolution to catch all the Florida black bass species this year," Walker said. Florida has four of the nine black bass species that make up the BASS Slam (BassMaster.com/Slam). Collectively, bass are the most popular sport fishes in North America. The Florida largemouth is the largest and most popular of all, but its smaller cousins provide great fishing as well. Completing the slam requires a commitment to travel, careful research and a high level of skill. Because of the immense popularity of black bass and their potential to contribute to the ecological, economic and social well-being of Florida, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) on June 9 approved a longterm management plan (see MyFWC.com/Fishing) to ensure anglers worldwide will recognize Florida as the undisputed bass fishing capital of the world. Among the many action items in the new plan is the idea of promoting the Florida black bass grand slam, which can inspire anglers to seek out new opportunities and emphasize the critical need for habitat management and conservation to keep these fisheries viable. Walker's story epitomizes all that the FWC hopes to encourage in anglers. His quest began April 2 with a trip to Oleno State Park on the Santa Fe River, accompanied by his wife, Nancy, and their 4-year-old son, Jack. While fishing there in a rented canoe, he caught both a Suwannee bass, with its beautiful purplish colors along the lateral line, and a Florida largemouth. Walker next took on the shoal bass. After researching the species on MyFWC.com/Fishing and elsewhere, he decided that the upper Chipola was the best place to go. He loaded Outdoors Florida black bass grand slam fever contagious F ISH B USTERS BULLETIN PLEASESEEFISH PAGE21 0008QAE TAMPA MONTHLY MIAMI $7 PER PERSON DOUBLE OCCUPANCY AUG. 22, SEPT. 28, OCT. 9 AND NOV. 9, 2011.

On the way, he tried fishing from shore and was rewarded with a beautiful shoal bass from the Chipola near CR278. He described this as his favorite catch, as it slammed a finesse worm and came 2 feet out of the water, giving them all a thrill. It is also a beautiful fish, with tiger stripes along its cheeks, an orange tint and bright red eyes. By the end of April, he had three of the four Florida black basses to his credit. Needing only the spotted bass, and wanting the best (most recent) information available, he contacted the FWC. I had the good fortune of taking his call and enjoyed a delightful conversation with this avid angler, conservationist and family man. Enthralled by his story, I put him in touch with one of our regional offices, where Katie Woodside and Matt Wegener provided him with the information he needed. In his words, "Some great folks there shared with me great (and beautiful) locations to find my last species. This trip actually began on my birthday (May 26) and resulted with the accomplishment of my Florida bass slam." He caught a qualifying spotted bass at the Hightower Springs Landing on Holmes Creek, just by walking the bank with his family and casting a finesse worm. It must have been a memorable birthday and Memorial Day for him and his family. That sounds like enough to make a great story and cover a half-year of fishing, but the Walkers had more to offer. Nancy, Jim's wife, is one fish shy of her Florida slam as well. Jim has his own new goal. Now he wants to catch other species of bass in Florida, and he can already scratch the nonnative peacock bass off his list.

Also on Tuesday, commissioners presented a Parks and Recreation Month proclamation recognizing the contributions of local parks to the health and quality of life of Marion County residents. Parks and recreation are integral foundations in the well-being of our citizens, said Gina Peebles, the countys parks and recreation director. Our park areas dont just encourage fitness and active lifestyles; they also help drive economic growth through increased commerce and property values. Cities and counties nationwide celebrate Recreation and Parks Month in July to recognize the role park and recreation facilities play in creating successful communities.

Just off of Pun Alley is a little known cow path where we see some moving tails, or is it moooving tales? Lots of cows A young man visited a small ranch and was walking with one of the ranch hands through the barnyard when he said, Say, look at that big bunch of A little known cow path can be found off Pun Alley P UN ALLEY D F Dick Frank cows. The hired hand replied, Not bunch, but herd. Heard what? Herd of cows. Sure, Ive heard of cows, theres a big bunch of em right over there. Milked for all its worth A farmer was milking a cow when a fly appeared. After circling around the cows head, it flew into the cows ear. Then a few minutes later, as the farmer continued milking, the fly squirted out into his bucket. Recounting the story, the farmer explained, It went in one ear and out the udder. Retail The farmer had been taken so many times by the local car dealer that when the dealer wanted to buy a cow, the farmer told him the cost would be $200 for the basic cow, two-tone exterior $45; extra stomach $75; product storage compartment, $60; dispensing device, four spigots at $10 each, $40; genuine cowhide upholstery, $125; dual horns, $15; and automatic fly swatter, $35. Total price would be $595 not including administrative and product preparation fees. Cow tales Cows wear bells because their horns dont work. When the cow jumped over the barbed wire fence it was an udder catastrophe. The cowboy that got fired from his ranch job wasnt crazy; he was just deranged. A cow that doesnt give milk is an udder failure. A cows happiest place on earth is in Cowlifornia, of course. Holstains are the spots on black and white cows. Milk of Amnesia comes from a forgetful cow. When cows go to school they like moosic, psycowolgy, and cowculus. Spoiled milk comes from pampered cows. Short story Now, son, the farmer said to the new farmhand, are you sure you know just how long cows should be milked? Yep, said the hired help. Just the same as short ones. The Cowboy Cowboy Joe was telling his fellow cowboys back on the ranch about his first visit to an Orlando church. When I got there, they had me park my old truck in the corral, Joe began. You mean the parking lot, interrupted Charlie, a worldlier fellow. I walked up the trail to the door, Joe continued. The sidewalk, Charlie corrected him. Inside the door, I was met by this dude, Joe went on. The usher, Charlie explained. Well, the usher led me down the chute, Joe said. You mean the aisle, Charlie said. Then, he led me to a stall and told me to sit there, Joe continued. Pew, Charlie retorted. Yeah, recalled Joe. Thats what that pretty lady said when I sat down beside her. Higher math A teacher was introducing mathematics to children. She said, in order to subtract, things have to be the same type. For instance, we couldnt take three pears from four peaches, or eight horses from ten cats. Do you understand? Most of the students understood but one little boy in the rear raised his hand inquiringly. Well, Bobby, asked the teacher, what is it? Please, teacher, he said, couldnt you take three quarts of milk from two cows? Welcome back Three cowboys were waiting for their friend to show up at the corral with his new car. I know that smart aleck, said the first. Hes gonna start bragging about that new foreign car he bought as soon as he gets back. Naw, the second cowboy replied. Hell always be just a good ol boy. When he walks in, Im sure all hell say is hello. I know Tex better than either of you, said the third. Hes so smart, hell figure out a way to do both. Just then, the door swung open. Audi, partners! Wordy The husband showed his wife an article about a study which concluded that men use about 10,000 words per day while women use 20,000 words per day. See? He said. Women talk twice as much as men. No. Women use twice as many words as men because we have to repeat everything we say. What? Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run. arks.htm, or call 352-6718560.

Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com E THE ENVIRONMENTAL MAGAZINE Dear EarthTalk: Why dont we reprocess and re-use our nuclear waste like France does? Would it be possible for us to start doing so? -Albert Jukowsky, Silver Spring, MD Reprocessing nuclear waste to extract more energy from it, while expensive and controversial, is indeed to this day still practiced in France, the UK, Russia, India and Japanbut not in the United States, where it was invented. The process involves breaking down spent nuclear fuel chemically and recovering fissionable material for use in new fuels. Proponents tout the benefit of reducing the amount of nuclear waste, resulting in less highly radioactive material that needs to be stored safely. Nuclear reprocessing was first developed in the U.S. as part of the World War II-era Manhattan Project to create the first atomic bomb. After the war, the embryonic nuclear power industry began work to reprocess its waste on a large scale to extend the useful life of uranium, a scarce resource at the time. But commercial reprocessing attempts faltered due to technical, economic and regulatory problems. Anti-nuclear sentiment and the fear of nuclear proliferation in the 1970s led President Jimmy Carter to terminate federal support for further development of commercial reprocessing. The military did continue to reprocess nuclear waste for defense purposes, though, until the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War made continuous ramping up of our nuclear arsenal unnecessary. More recently, George W. Bush pushed a plan, the Global Nuclear Energy Project (GNEP), to promote the use of nuclear power and subsidize the development of a new generation of proliferation-resistant nuclear reprocessing technologies that could be rolled out to the commercial nuclear energy sector. Federal scientists came up with promising spins on reprocessing nuclear fuel while minimizing the resulting waste. But in June of 2009 the Obama administration cancelled GNEP citing cost concerns. TOUCANRADIO, COURTESY FLICKR Reprocessing nuclear waste -practiced in France and several other countries but not in the U.S. where it was invented -involves breaking down spent nuclear fuel to recover material for use in new fuels. Proponents say it reduces the amount of nuclear waste, resulting in less highly radioactive material that needs to be stored safely. Pictured: France's Cattenom nuclear power station.

A local woman faces eight felony charges stemming from her arrest for stealing from a family in which she was caring for a dying man. Chequita Michelle Terry, 40, of Northwest Blitchton Road, allegedly worked in the home of an Indigo Lakes couple for months. During that time she allegedly took jewelry and pawned some of it. The thefts were discovered by the woman living in the house after her husband had died. Terry is charged with four counts of larceny and four counts of dealing in stolen property. She was booked into the jail on July 7 and released Monday of this week. A court date is scheduled for August. There were actually four caregivers working in shifts, and the victim was able to identify them from their driver license photos. Deputies then checked pawn shops for activity for each of the four nurses, and Terrys was the only name that came up in the investigation. DUI arrests Juan Carlos Rodriguez, 30, of Southwest 119th Court, Dunnellon, was accused of DUI and driving while license suspended or revoked after being stopped for making two illegal turns. Rodriguez supplied an ID card from Texas. A criminal history check showed arrests for DUI in 2003 and 2004 in Texas. After he reportedly failed a field sobriety test, he was taken to the Marion County Jail, where his breath reportedly registered .259 and .240. Jose Dominguez, 27, of Northwest 110th Court, was accused of DUI and driving while license suspended or revoked after being stopped at Northwest 110th Avenue and State Road 40 West for failing to drive in a single line and speeding 72 in a 55 mph zone. After he allegedly failed the field sobriety test, he was taken to jail, where he refused to give a breath sample. A computer check showed a previous arrest for DUI and a license revocation. Other county reports Two teens face conspiracy to commit murder charges after an alleged plot to kill a classmate. Christopher Paul Rigiero, 16, of Summerfield, and Paul Alexander Malnasi, 16 of Ocala were arrested on July 8. Marion County Sheriffs Office Detectives allegedly learned that both high school students conspired to torture, kill and dismember a ninth grader. A witness told detectives, Rigiero and Malnasi were playing Xbox online. At one point, Rigiero asked Malnasi to help kill the targeted ninth grader and then dispose the victims body. The witness said Malnasi agreed to the murder plan and even offered both his vehicle and torture kit that he keeps in the trunk of his car. Also, conversations from a popular social media website revealed that Rigiero hates the victim and wants to kill him. Both suspects discussed how not to get caught like those of another homicide (Seath Jacksons case). Malnasi and Rigiero discussed kidnapping the juvenile victim. The suspects planned to gag the victim, hit the victim about the head, stuff the victim into a Kevlar bag, so that the juvenile victims body would sink. Malnasi and Rigiero planned to dispose of the victims body parts in the waters near Miami. Detectives found an axe, surgical cutting tools, a torch lighter, rope, scissors and other cutting tools in the trunk of Malnasis car. In another case, with homeowners away, a neighbor realized no one should be at the home. So, he called the Marion County Sheriffs Office after observing a strange vehicle parked on the property. The tipster provided a description of the vehicle and the tag number. This was in the Hog Valley area just before noon, Thursday, July 7. By the time a deputy arrived, the vehicle and suspect were gone. But, evidence was left behind: fresh shoe and tire tracks. The deputy reported finding: a broken front door; copper wire pulled from the walls; wiring cut from the outlets, switches and light sockets; wiring pulled from the ceiling throughout the home; copper was cut from the air conditioner and water heater. Marion County Sheriffs Office Detective Barney Gaskin got involved and found the suspected vehicle less than two miles away. Det. Gaskin saw burglary tools in the vehicle. Plus tire and shoe tracks similar to those at the scene, said MCSO Lieutenant Dennis M. Chesser, Commander, Northeast District. It didnt take long after making contact with Henry Pabst before Det. Gaskin allegedly discovered property reported stolen from another burglary in the Hog Valley area that occurred back in May. Pabst was charged with the burglary that happened July 7, as well as an outstanding warrant for violation of probation. Detectives located other items that appear to be stolen property. If anyone in the Hog Valley area has had a recent burglary which they did not report, we need them to call, said Lt. Chesser. Contact Det. Gaskin at 352-402-6010. Jewelry items stolen from dying mans wife Proponents of nuclear power and of reprocessing in particular were far from pleased with GNEPs axing, especially in light of Obamas earlier decision to close Yucca Mountain as the U.S.s future nuclear waste repository. GNEP may have gone away, but the need to recycle spent fuel in this country is more important than ever because of the governments stupid decision to close Yucca Mountain, said Danny Black of the Southern Carolina Alliance, a regional economic development group, on the Ecopolitology blog. Without Yucca Mountain, the pressure is on the industry to do more with recycling. But a 2007 report by the nonprofit Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (IEER) would seem to justify Obamas decision. IEER found that nuclear reprocessing would actually increase our volume of nuclear waste six fold. IEER also reported that France, which runs the worlds most efficient reprocessing operation, spends about two cents per kilowatt hour more for electricity generated from reprocessed nuclear fuel compared to that generated from fresh fuel. IEEE further reports that the costs to build the breeder plants needed to convert spent nukes into usable fuel would create intolerable costs and risks. For now, U.S. nuclear plants will continue to store waste on site, with spent rods cooled in pools of water for upwards of a year and then moved into thick steel and concrete caskets. While proliferation and terrorism have long been risks associated with hosting nuclear plants on American soil, recent events in Japan underscores that even Mother Nature poses a threat. As such, advocates of reprocessing probably stand little chance of reviving plans in a political climate now so hostile to nuclear development.

EARTH TALKCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The Senior Learning Institute at the College of Central Florida will premiere a video of The Holocaust Cantata, the culminating performance of a history, music and dance class held by the institute in collaboration with Dr. Wayne Earnest and the Marion Civic Chorale, Ana Jacobs and the Light of Joy Ballet Company, and West Port High School. The video will be shown Tuesday, July 19, at 6 p.m. at the Webber Center of the CF Ocala Campus, 3001 S.W. College Road. There is no fee to attend. The video, approximately 90 minutes, is a recording of The Holocaust Cantata at West Port High School in Ocala in April. The performance included songs and narration by Holocaust survivors and their family members interspersed with music and dance by community members and West Port students. This project gave a voice and visual remembrance to those who suffered in the Holocaust, said Jerone Gamble, CF manager of Continuing Education. Our community came together to create this moving performance which will stay with us forever through the video. The Senior Learning Institute at CF held the course, A Slice of Tragic History to an On-Stage Holocaust Cantata, during spring semester. The institute offers lifelong learning opportunities for senior community members. During the five performances following the class, the Cantata was seen by more than 2,000 people in Marion and Citrus counties. The Holocaust Cantata publisher, Hinshaw Music Inc., has granted utilization of the DVD for the entire state of Florida for three years for educational purposes. The Florida Holocaust Mandate requires instruction on the Holocaust for all students in kindergarten through grade 12. Ultimately, the establishment of Holocaust studies in Florida schools is expected to play a significant role in the development of tolerant attitudes, cooperative and collaborative behaviors, informed, involved and compassionate citizens, and other skills encouraging civility, according to Florida statute. For information on the video screening, contact the Senior Learning Institute at call 352-854-2322, ext. 1675, or Jerone Gamble at 352-854-2322, ext. 1282.

The Florida 511 Traveler Information System provides traffic information on all of Floridas interstates, toll roads and many major metropolitan roadways. The app is available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch in the iTunes App Store. The new app provides the same real-time traffic and travel time information as the 511 phone system and FL511.com. The 511 app uses iPhones GPS tracking to provide users with traffic information within miles of their location. Users can set the app to provide information for a range of up to 200 miles from their location or receive traffic information based on their registered My Florida 511 custom routes. Travel time information is also available based on location and direction of travel. The Florida 511 app offers traffic updates in three ways: An audible recording of incidents On-screen list of incidents Map view displaying incidents This is a great addition to Florida 511s suite of traffic resources such as the toll-free phone call, FL511.com and My Florida 511 personalized services, said FDOT Secretary Ananth Prasad. The app allows users to access traffic updates quickly and safely. The Florida 511 system is a safety resource from FDOT. The Department reminds all travelers to Know Before You Go by checking the app, making a toll-free call to 511 or visiting FL511.com before leaving to avoid distracted driving. If youre on the road, have a passenger check 511 or pull off the road to call 511 or check the 511 app, said Sgt. Kim Montes of the Florida Highway Patrol. Users can still receive personalized Florida 511 updates by creating a My Florida 511 account. Registered users can hear information on their custom routes first when calling 511 and even receive traffic alerts via phone call, text message and/or e-mail.
