Scenic road hearing draws small crowd PHOTO BY JIM CLARKSouthwest 66th Street west of State Road 200 is one of Marion Countys designated scenic roads. JIM CLARK Editor The crowd was small but vocal Thursday, July 14, as Marion County planners held a public hearing on the scenic road situation in the county, including the proposed master plan. Almost all speakers were in favor of expanding the scenic road designations in the county, and one went so far as to propose that the process be taken away from county commissioners. Justin Ryan, transportation planner for the countys Growth Management Departments Planning Division, conducted the meeting, which was originally scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m., but adjourned shortly after 7 after all those who wished to speak had been heard. Only 13 members of the public attended. The most radical proposal came from Steve Ellis of Southwest 75th Terrace, who suggested that decisions on scenic roads be removed from the county commissioners lap. He proposed a ranking by a committee of the recommended scenic roads, and that the top Harry Potter event PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKA large crowd of wizards and muggles descended on Ocala for the opening of the latest Harry Potter move.

BY CAROLYN TEN BROECK Special to the Citizen The city of Williston inched its way closer to finding a permanent police chief during a committee meeting last week. Clay Connolly, John Donadio, Dennis J. Strow and Thomas R. Wilder made the final cut from the 11 men who applied for the job. They will be interviewed beginning at 10 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 4 in the City Council Chambers. One of these men will become Willistons next police chief, following on the heels of Dan Davis who retired in February. Capt. Clay Connolly is currently serving in the position as the interim chief. Williston Mayor Gerald Hethcoat, who spearheads the committee that will make a recommendation to the city council, said last week that the process was almost scientific in its approach.

The committee developed a strategy early on in its meeting, Hethcoat said, including what criteria it would use as a gauge and how members would rank their choices. Applicants were eliminated based on criteria set forth in the advertisement for the position. Three were disqualified for failure to follow directions in the advertisement, which called for applications to be complete and notarized. Two were eliminated because they did not have the three-years of command experience required for the position. From the final six, the committee selected the following listed in alphabetical order. Clay Connolly of Williston who has more than 22 years experience in the city. In his letter of application, Connolly wrote that he hoped to continue serving the residents of Williston until his retirement. Thomas Wilder of Ocala. Wilder is currently a chief of staff with the Marion County Sheriffs Department and has more than 29 years experience in law enforcement. John Donadio of Gainesville. In his letter of application, Donadio wrote that he had successfully managed a staff of 38, and could produce results within a limited budget. Dennis Strow of Ocala. Strow has 38 years in law enforcement and is employed with the Marion County Sheriffs Department. The interviews with the four are open to the public. Carolyn Ten Broeck is the editor of the Williston Pioneer Sun-News, an LCNI newspaper. CHIEF CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Suspect caught in store break-in A suspect was arrested after he apparently smashed in a door and stole some purses at Second Chance Consignment Shop, 6125 S.W. State Road 200, on July 14. Clarence A. Williams, 48, was accused of commercial burglary and theft. According to the report, deputies responded to the store and the suspect was seen running away from teh location. The deputy stopped the suspect, who allegedly admitted that he had stolen some purses and put them in a trash bag to carry from the store. He was wearing a black mask, and a black sock on his hand which he allegedly said was to stop him from leaving fingerprints. He was taken to jail without incident. Also late on July 14, a suspect was arrested at Walmart on charges he tried to steal a television worth more than $1,700. Kevin Douglas Smith, 28, of Southwest 151st Place, Dunnellon was stopped by the manager as he attempted to leave through a locked automotive door. It was late in the evening and the automotive department was closed and the lights were out. He left the store and deputies got the description of his car and stopped him in the 6600 block of County Road 484. He was taken to jail without incident. Amber Nikolia Walters, 20, of Northwest 41st Street, was accused of retail theft at Bealls Department Store after she allegedly took items into a dressing room and placed them in a Bealls bag in her purse. A local man was arrested for DUI after being stopped for suspiciously driving around in a residential neighborhood. Ricky Daniel Redmon, 47, of Southwest 78th Place in Ocala, allegedly failed the field sobriety test andrefused to give a breath sample at the jail. An Ocala man was among those arrested in Citrus County during a sex sting in Inverness. Adam Williams, 19, of Ocala, was among those arrested. The Citrus County Sheriffs Office led the sting. Operation Cyber Guardian, a weeklong undercover sting, led to the arrest of 18 people who used the Internet to solicit sex from children and then traveled to Citrus County with the intention of engaging in sexual activity with these supposed minors. The operation began July 11 and ended July 17. Sheriffs offices from Citrus, Polk, Sumter, Marion and Alachua counties were involved.

One of the best ways to do that is through dove hunting, which is one reason why great dove hunts are in such high demand but often difficult to find. That's why the FWC created its Special-Opportunity Dove Club Program to offer hunters the chance of experiencing exceptional dove hunting on the state's best public dove fields. Dove Club permits enable one adult and one youth (under age 16) to hunt all scheduled dates for the dove field of their choice. Permits cost $150 and enable both hunters to take a daily bag limit of birds each. There are eight hunts on all but one of the selected dove fields (Caravelle Ranch has six), and all hunts are from noon until sunset and take place on Saturdays, starting Oct. 1 and ending Jan. 7. Last year, 1,865 birds were harvested from six fields. This coming season, there again will be six special-opportunity dove fields scattered throughout the state from which to choose. One of the fields is on Allapattah Flats Public Small-Game Hunting Area (PSGHA) in Martin County, east of Lake Okeechobee. Thirteen Dove Club permits are available for the 100-acre field. Participants last year took an average of more than six birds per hunter per day, harvesting 644 birds. North Newberry PSGHA, in Alachua County, has 13 Dove Club permits on its 40 acres. That field didn't produce as well last year but yielded 410 doves two seasons ago. Caravelle Ranch, in Putnam County, has a 200-acre dove field with 30 Dove Club permits available. Last season, 249 doves were harvested there. The dove field on Hilochee Wildlife Management Area, in Lake County, has 15 Dove Club permits available to hunt its 58 acres. Hunters there last season took 490 doves, which equated to a 2.5-birds-perhunter, per day average. Frog Pond PSGHA, in Miami-Dade County, has been a top producer in past years, and 246 birds were taken there last season, for nearly a 2-birds-perhunter, per day average. Fifteen Dove Club permits are available to hunt its 50 acres. The remaining specialopportunity dove field is a brand new one to the system and is in Lafayette County. Koon Farm PSGHA is a 40-acre dove field with 13 permits available. Dove Club permits will be issued by random drawing during Phase I. That application period is July 1-18. After obtaining the correct application worksheet by going to MyFWC.com/Hunting and clicking on "Limited Entry Hunts," you can apply for these season passes by filling out a single worksheet (with up to five dove field choices) and turning it in at any county tax collector's office, license agent or by going online to www.fl.wildlifelicense.com During Phase I, hunters may be awarded a permit for only one dove field.

Friday, July 22, 2011 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, July 22, 2011 www.smcitizen.com roads on the list be submitted to the voters in a referendum. That would take the political nature away. Commissioners recently decided to remove some roads from the list, with the most controversial being part of Shady Road, also known as County Road 475A and, in some places, Southwest 27th Avenue. Darlene Weesner, who said she started the scenic road efforts in 1985, said she was very, very concerned with recent actions. She pointed out the advantage to eco-tourism of having the designated roads. She criticized the County Commission for its actions, saying, There have been no challenges to it up to now. She added, Were spending time doing something that isnt really necessary. She criticized the development of the now completed 31st Street extension. We could have had a nice twolane parkway for less money, and used the remaining funds for something else. Michelle Shearer of Southwest 85th Street, who is a member of the Scenic Road Advisory Committee, said that there have been very few negative comments. The majority of Marion County apparently is fine with the ordinance. She said the county should Keep the ordinance as it is. She said there is an economic impact of a scenic road on real estate. People feel security buying on scenic roads. She noted that Shady Road needs to keep that two-lane charm. When you are riding you are able to take in both sides of the road. She added, The scenic roads keep Marion County from becoming a South Florida city. Susan Woods of Northwest 90th Avenue spoke about her road. We were hoping it would be a scenic road by now. Ellis spoke again, saying he books a gathering of people who come to drive the roads. If we screw around with these roadways, they wont come back. Once you mess it up its gone. He said he had booked 550 room nights at a local hotel this past March. Gordon Johnson, from Oxford in Sumter County, is a photographer who brings friends from Finland to ride around the roads in Marion County. He reminded staffers that 100 years ago mining was proposed in the Grand Canyon, and asked people to imagine what it would have done to tourism out there. Another hearing will be planned after more work is done on the plan. Meanwhile, information on scenic roads can be accessed at http://www.marioncountyfl.org/Planning/sc enic_roads.aspx (no hyphens in address, but there is an underscore before the word roads.

Friday, July 22, 2011 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, July 22, 2011 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You face the possibility of raising your relationship to another level. However, your partner might demand that you make promises for which youre not sure youre ready. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) As changes continue, expect things to get a little more hectic at your workplace. An unexpected travel opportunity could open new career prospects. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Confront the person who caused your hurt feelings and demand a full explanation for his or her actions. Youll not only recover your self-esteem, but youll also gain the respect of others. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That personal problem in the workplace is compounded by someones biased interference. Stand your ground, and youll soon find allies gathering around you. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You dont accept disapproval easily. But instead of hiding out in your den to lick your wounded pride, turn the criticism into a valuable lesson for future use. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) That former friend you thought youd cut out of your life is still affecting other relationships. Counter his or her lies with the truth. Your friends are ready to listen. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) What appears to be an unfair situation might simply be the result of a misunderstanding. If you feel something is out of balance, by all means, correct it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A stalled relationship wont budge until you make the first move. Your partner offers a surprising explanation about what got it mired down in the first place. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A co-worker shares some startling news, but before you can use it to your advantage, make sure its true. The weekend favors family matters. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your usual conservative approach to family situations might not work at this time. Keep an open mind about developments, and you might be pleasantly surprised. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Plans might have to be put on hold because of a family members problems. Dont hesitate to get involved. Your help could make all the difference. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Relationships in the home and in the workplace need your careful attention during this period. Be careful not to allow misunderstandings to create problems.

OTOWCONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 A t the July 5 Homeowner Forum, Carol and Red Mock were recognized for their considerable contribution to the Marion Landing community. They have been residents for more than 16 years and have served on many dance committees. Carol is a member of Little Theatre, Money Movers Club, and Quilting Club; she also delivers The Communicator and has served on other committees such as Election, Ballot, Education and Document. Red is a member of the Marion Landing Patrol. A framed Volunteer Recognition Certificate was presented to Carol and Red by Bob Fink, the Boards 1st vice president. A plaque engraved with their names will join the 134 other volunteers recognized by the Community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Independence Day feud settled Families often celebrate Independence Day with picnics or barbecues and by gathering with friends and relatives. That was true in Marion Landing this July 4, and the picnic lunch was just terrific. But it wasnt all about the hot dogs and potato salad. It was about friends and neighbors enjoying each others company and all about playing Marion Landing Feud. Two groups of friends and neighbors formed family teams to play an entertaining game of the popular TV show. This spring, the community was surveyed to provide the top answers to a number of questions. Two families were formed, and it was the Hall Team (Mary Ann Hall-captain, Nancy Scott, Eileen Stannard, Jeanne Waite and Marie Callog) vs. the Schmidt Team (Bob Schmidt-captain, Donna Schmidt, Joan Buzzek, Toni Niemeyer and Lou Caporiccio). At the end of it all, the Schmidt Team claimed the victory, and appreciation trophies were given to all. Special thanks to all the volunteers who pitched in to make this holiday a memorable one: entertainment coordinator and MC: Liz Herrick; all the family members named above; those in the community who filled out the survey; food preparers and servers: Terry Callarman, Jim Therien, Nancy Rife, Pat Mershimer, Leta Simmons, Marg Carlquist, Volunteer honors to Carol and Red Mock M ARION LANDING D B Diane Bress Carol and Red Mock receive the Volunteer Appreciation Certificate from Board 1st VP Bob Fink (left).

Its because of community participation, such as this, that makes Marion Landing a great place to live! Fall bowling leagues forming now Although we are still in the midst of summer, its time to start thinking about fall bowling. There are four leagues which are now being formed, and there are still some openings on Tuesday at 6:45 p.m., Thursday at 9:30 a.m. and Friday at 6:45 p.m. All leagues bowl for 26 weeks from September to March, and the cost is $4 per week, which includes the cost of the annual bowling banquet. It is not necessary to be a good bowler, said Dick Blanck, secretary to three of the leagues. The leagues are handicapped at 100 percent. Residents may sign up on the sheets posted on the bulletin board in the Bowling Center. And dont forget, theres still open bowling during the summer (hours are posted in the Bowling Center and on the Daily Activities Schedule) and 9pin No Tap plays every Wednesday at 9 a.m. All residents are welcome to participate. As a side note, Marion Landings Bowling Center was highlighted in the Summer 2011 edition of the Leland Management Newsletter, The Leland Insider. Our own Erik Halkola was lauded for keeping the alleys in great shape for our residents who say that our community is the ultimate place to retire because of this unique amenity. Zentangle-mania Did you ever find yourself doodling, and the result looked like a work of art? Thats the premise behind the fascinating new art form, Zentangle. Its an easy-to-learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns done with pen and small paper tiles. Its fun, relaxing, provides artistic satisfaction and gives you an increased sense of personal well being. Anyone can create a Zentangle, and it can be done anytime you have a few minutes to spare. Instructor Elaine Fitchpatrick is bringing this class to Marion Landing. I have done tangles on a shirt, for pendants, and on plain colored paper gift bags, said Elaine, who also teaches our Handmade Greeting Card class. Zentangle class day, time and cost will be posted soon, and any resident wishing to join in should sign the interest sheet posted on the Activity Wall or inquire in the Activities Office.

T he book jacket of Horans quasi-biographical novel is showered with superlatives, making it a favorite of book clubs. Prompting lively discussion is whether married, motherof-two Mameh Borthwick Cheney deserves praise for escaping a stifling marriage to elope with famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright or censure for abandoning a decent husband and their children. In the decade before World War 1, a self-actualizing woman could expect only scorn while her lover would receive a mere wrist slap for naughty behavior. It was actually Mamehs husband who was first to recognize Wright as an architectural visionary when he hired him to design a prairie house for the Cheney family. The Wrights and Cheneys were neighbors and friends in Oak Park until the affair came to light. The physical attraction between Frank and Mameh almost immediately led to a discreet liaison that for years permitted the two to appear as devoted parents. (Wright, also married, had six children at the time.) Granted, Mameh was no ordinary housewife. A college graduate, fluent in several languages, she yearned to stop standing on the side of life watching it float by and instead wished to swim in the river and feel its current. In an era when most women quashed such thoughts and pretended to be happy, Mameh acted on her feelings. There eventually followed years of separation from the couples combined eight children, many of them still heartbreakingly young. Although Mameh with Frank was able to rebuild her professional life in Europe where theyd fled and find stimulation and support in feminists like Swedish scholar Ellen Keyes, there was no denying that her personal freedom left in its wake two destroyed families. Legions of female readers have loved this novel. Some of us less enthusiastic have found Wright and Cheney incredibly selfish and the dialogue Horan invents for them strangely banal for two such luminaries. However, all is not a loss here as Horan unearths little-known facts about Wright and his times the influence of Japan on his work, his love for his native Wisconsin, and his admiration for classic Tuscan architecture. On the down side is his monumental ego and his disregard for others in refusing to pay his enormous debts. The conclusion, perhaps well-known to Wright followers, is shocking in its violence and destruction to the rest of us.

LILA IVEY Special to the Citizen The philosophy behind end-of-life treatment for hospice patients is compassionate comfort care. When the hope of a cure is no longer an option, patients may live out their days in comfort thanks to the expertise of the hospice team in administering appropriate medications and providing emotional support for both the patient and family. Now Hospice of Marion County is adding yet another level of comfort care in the form of an ancient art rediscovered in the 19th century by a Japanese physician. Reiki (pronounced RAY-kee) is a modern therapeutic application using the doctors simple methodology. Scientists are baffled at how this non-invasive system works, but it is known that the bodys natural electromagnetic field, both the patients and the practitioners, come into play, creating a synergistic aura of relaxation. Bottom line: it works. What is it? The premise of Reiki draws upon the power of healing energy already present all around us. The heart and brain also send out measurable electromagnetic signals, creating the biofield of the human body which extends several feet beyond the skin. These subtle energy fields have a vibration that can be altered to promote a sense of wellbeing and relaxation, and yes, even help with the relief of pain and symptoms, says Lisa Brown, MSN, RN, director of Patient/Family Care at Hospice of Marion County. Brown is also trained as a traditional Reiki master and this summer began providing that training to her field staff on a voluntary basis. The system is so simple, anyone can do it, but Reiki practitioners must be trained via the traditional method and attend three two-hour sessions. The non-medical treatment consists of the systematic placement of the practitioners hands on specific areas of the patients body that correspond with the endocrine glands. The patient remains fully clothed and may be either in a chair or a bed, which is ideal for hospice patients who may be bed-bound. The placement points, such as the top of the head, the throat and the midchest require an extremely light touch. In fact, the practitioner may not actually touch the skin, allowing about an inch between her hands and the patients body, adds Brown. The vibratory energy field is still created, stimulating relaxation. Experiments at the University of Colorado discovered that the frequency of pulsations from the practitioners hands varied, ranging in waves from 0.3 hz to 30 hz. The connection between the patients cooperation and the practitioners intention have the power to alter the biomagnetic field, thus inducing a state of deep relaxation. What does it feel like? No two sessions are ever the same, but generally produce an overall sense of peace. The treatment itself feels like a glowing radiance throughout the body and in the space around the patient. One may feel warmth, tingling or a deep relaxation, all of which help with discomforting symptoms. Reiki can not only be used for our hospice patients, but also for friends, family and especially for ourselves, says Brown.

Friday, July 22, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com The Right Choices For I f youve been to a doctors office lately you probably had an opportunity to read a magazine or two or three. Whether the magazine was focused on news, sports, gardening, mechanics, cooking, fashion, or humor, it included at least one advertisement suggesting a medication you might want to discuss with your doctor. Its important to answer honestly the questions which medication advertisements suggest. For example Do you have too much fat in your blood? or Do you want to get a better grip on life? Magazines and television have opened a wide world of treatments for many conditions with which we already suffer. However some ads call our attention to ailments even hypochondriacs have never heard of. Unless turning magazine pages causes you to doze off (you might want to ask the doctor about that.), you may have noticed a common pattern in health ads. Often theres a smiling person who suggests You dont have to suffer like I did with ingrown toenails. Another is Gee, Sis, you ought to discuss these symptoms with your doctor. The ads dont say whether Sis tweeted back Mind your own business! The happy-face blurbs are usually short. Most end by suggesting Please read patient information on the next page. The headline on the flip side says: Important safety information about Relievo (a fictitious remedy for everything). The details of the reverse page may cause you to ask Why didnt I take chemistry in high school, or at least volunteer for a first aid course? Those who took chemistry may regret that they sat near the windows and dozed off in class. Health ads ask similar questions: What is Relievo? What should I tell the doctor before getting Relievo? What are the possible side effects of Relievo? A list of familiar symptoms follows: flushing, nausea, headache, chills, fatigue, fever, hair loss, etc. Call your doctor right away if you have dizziness, chest pain, breathing problems, irregular heartbeat, or amnesia. Other highlighted information includes This product is FDA approved and Consult the package insert for full prescribing information. Good grief, theres more? Recently we received a prescription for Relievo. Inside was enough paper to create a roll of toilet tissue. In tiny type it revealed There is no assurance that Relievo is safe, effective, or appropriate. Ask your doctor. Hello, Doctor? Are you sure about this stuff? Then there are more paragraphs about precautions, side effects, interactions, overdoses, underdoses. Complaints should be reported to the FDA. After all, they approved Relievo. An uncomforting summary of the thousand words about Relievo is Dont blame us if you neglected to ask your doctor before something went wrong. We would suggest one additional caveat: This paper is not recommended as a substitute for body tissue products. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, July 22, 2011 T he weekend was a little rough around here. Late Friday, Pauline Moore, our former office coordinator and inside salesperson, died at Citrus Memorial Hospital in Inverness after a fairly short battle with leukemia. When I first came to this paper from Levy County two years ago, there was Pauline at the front desk every day greeting people with a smile. She always used to call me kiddo, and at first I thought she couldnt remember my name. Then I realized she called everyone that. We eventually got to be friends, which wasnt hard when you were with her, and some of the moments I remember would come on days around lunch time when she and I would be the only two people in the building, and shed come back to my office, plop down in a chair and just talk. Pauline had some severe eye problems and didnt drive. Every morning her husband Lee faithfully drove her to work from their home in Crystal River, and every afternoon hed come and pick her up. But lunch was on her own, and a lot of us here would go out for lunch and get something and bring it back. In times like this you think of little humorous situations. One day I was going to a popular fast food place and asked if she wanted anything. She said yes, get her a bowl of chili. I did as I was asked. But later that afternoon she stuck her head into my office and said, If I ever ask you to get me chili again, ignore me! You can guess what kind of afternoon she was having. Pauline was always doing things for others. She organized a birthday surprise dinner at a restaurant in Inverness for our general manager, Tricia, and then helped organize a farewell event when Tricia left the company. She was the keeper of the birthday lists, helped by our companys newsletter, and she always had a little goodie bag for everyone on their birthday, even those of us who really dont care to celebrate that much any more. But when we got a cake for her on her birthday, we got scolded but with a twinkle in her eye. She was our first representative at all the business expos that take place out here. The picture on the front of todays paper was taken at one of those events. Last winter, she went on a cruise. When she came back, she complained of a steady sore throat. She finally went to get checked, but was given some antibiotics and sent home. She eventually came back to work, but suddenly that sore throat exploded into a huge swelling in her neck. She resisted our best efforts for a short while, but eventually her husband came and took her to the emergency room to get checked. That was the last time she set foot in the office. She went home and we were told she was recovering. But one day she had to be taken to Citrus Memorial, and there the diagnosis of leukemia came down, shocking all of us. When we went to visit her, because she was undergoing chemo, we had to wear a surgical mask and gloves to enter her room. She spent time in and out of the hospital, and even spent a short time at the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. But she came back and, just a couple of weeks ago, she actually got to go to the supermarket. Little things like that are important when youre confined to home for any length of time I know, Ive been there. But shortly after that, it all went downhill. She was back in the hospital, and then, not too long ago, was moved into the hospice unit at Citrus Memorial. The word came down Friday night that she had died. As of this writing, there have been no plans announced for a service. She always said she didnt want a fuss, and evidently conveyed that feeling to her family as well. Theres a picture of her hanging on the wall in our front office from when she was chosen employee of the month some time back. I hope its allowed to stay there as a reminder to us of the type of person she was, so she can continue to inspire us all. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

She flew back to Orlando. And all that was just in one day this week. Note to the Orlando media: Shes gone. You cant change anything. She is in hiding. And that goes for the national cable media and network shows also. Guess what? Most of us just dont care. There is other news to follow. Our nation is on the verge of financial collapse. Our elected officials arent smart enough to realize the parties both have to compromise. There are walls in local places with dozens of unsolved murders. When it comes to children, we still dont know for sure who killed Trenton Duckett in Lake County. We still dont know what happened to Haleigh Cummings in Putnam County. We dont even know if shes dead or alive. We do know who killed that little boy in New York City who was chopped up into pieces. The suspect is going to plead insanity. There are other stories for Nancy Grace and her ilk to harp on. She, on top of all others, uses this tot mom phrase, which nobody around here calls Casey Anthony, for her own gain and ratings. People around the country think its a common nickname we use. Its not. Get over it, Nancy, its done. By the way, do you folks know who Ereck Plancher was? He was a UCF football player who died on the practice field, and his parents sued. That trial, also in Orlando, was completely overshadowed by the Anthony trial, but when the decision came down about June 30 or July 1, the jury found UCF liable for the death and awarded $10 million. This trial was just as emotional as the Anthony trial, with testimony about sickle cell anemia, and whether the college had properly taken care of the young man after tests on him were performed. These parents also lost a child, and the fact that he was a college football player didnt make it any easier for them to take. But the national media barely made mention of this case. Maybe it made a difference that the defendants were led by a chunky football coach, not a good-looking young lady. We have to wonder if Nancy Grace knows there were two deaths on trial in Orlando at the same time, not just one. After watching her probably not.

I t is with a heavy heart that we announce a cast change for our upcoming play, In St. Louis at the Fair. Peggy Studer who was to take the part of Hazel has sold her home of many years here in Oak Run and is returning to join friends and family in Pennsylvania. We are currently auditioning other members for the part. Peggy and Arnie Studer have been major players with both of our theater groups. They have extensive backgrounds in community theater dating back over 50 years. Their talent and counsel shall be a great loss to Oak Runners. Some years ago Oak Run Little Theatre was struggling to maintain membership and was on the brink of closing down. Peg and Arn stepped up to the plate and pretty much singlehandedly brought it back to its present prominence. They alternately served as president, producer, director and actor for over six straight years. There are not many plays in either of the theater groups that you can mention that they didnt have a hand in. God bless and keep you, Peg and Arn. You will be missed beyond words. The cast and production crew are ready and anxious to commence rehearsals the last week in August and we feel confident that our October play will be winner for Oak Run audiences. Advance ticket information is available by calling Linda Noel (352873-9908) who once again is our ticket chairperson. Linda works tirelessly in this role for both theater groups. We dont know how wed get along without her. Way Off Broadways next meeting will be on Aug. 8 at 7 p.m. in the Palm Grove Club. Correction Re Ocala Honor Flight H.L. Red Zell, USN Ret., has informed this columnist that contrary to what was indicated in the July 15 column, the October Honor Flight will not be the last Ocala Honor Flight. He is an Ocala committee member and states that they will continue with the project until they can no longer locate World War II veterans who qualify. They want as many World War II veterans as possible to apply for the trip to Washington so they may be honored in a very special way. The committee, and its leader Trey Adams, are aware of the age of the veterans and have increased emphasis on health and safety issues. Fundraising is progressing well and there is a solid commitment to an Oct. 27 flight. At present there are over 80 applications from World War II veterans and an overwhelming number of volunteers and escort applications. The committee has acquired an Ocala Honor Flight Hot Line. The number is 352-3519341. The mailing address for applications and donations is Ocala Honor Flight, PO Box 247, Ocala, FL 34478. The various fundraising events, and applications, are on their website www.ocalahonorflight.org and on www.facebook.com on the Ocala Honor Flight page. The Ocala committee has helped form other hubs in neighboring areas. There are Honor Flight committees in The Villages, Lakeland and Citrus County. Interestingly, a demographic study has shown that Citrus County and its surrounding area has more World War II veterans than any other area in the US. Check out the Honor Flight national website www.honorflight.org for information about hubs across the country. The history of the Honor Flight on this website is well worth reading. Do you remember?

Friday, July 22, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, July 22, 2011 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in Energy, backbone of the American economyHows that alternative/green energy working for you? Is it helping run your motor vehicle? Have you been putting it in your gas tank, after the price of gasoline went up so much since last year? Are you using some nice green gasoline? Have you noticed that the economy has declined some more, as gasoline and other fossil fuel prices have risen? Are you surprised at that? If so, youve bought into the lies that have come out of government/media about the great wonders of alternative/green energy, and the need to continually assault Americas fossil fuel industries. (oil, natural gas, coal). The occupant of the White House has commissioned his number one weapon/enemy against the American economy, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to do great damage to all American fossil fuel production, with increased regulation on the coal industry (for electric, commercial, manufacturing), and the absurd dishonesty of calling carbon dioxide a health hazard as an excuse to increase their assault on fossil fuels. At the 2008 annual meeting, I listened to Jim Duncan, CEO of electric company SECO, just before Americas economy crashed big, and the Democrats were hollering crisis, as their excuse to bury America in much more debt. (Stimulus) and regulation that have done worse than nothing for Americas economy or other well-being, because the massive debt and regulatory increases have been intended to hurt, not help America. In 2008, and again this year, I thanked Mr. Duncan for his honest and important assessment. In 2008, I was a bit surprised at the treachery of cap and trade ideas (which I first learned about from Duncan) to bury America even further in recession. Since then, no government treachery is surprising, as it keeps rolling out, especially from the White House and his czars and agencies. Jims (Duncan) more recent warning is about the EPA, with its ongoing, brazen attempts to regulate American energy industries into oblivion and, thus, America itself, into oblivion. Meanwhile, we continue to hear the joke coming from the White House, that its occupant cares about jobs and the economy, while he does all he can to ruin the economy and all worthwhile jobs.) Eight-five percent of Americas energy comes from fossil fuels; 50 percent of American electricity comes from coal, by far Americas most abundant and easily accessible source of energy. Its easy to see that an assault on coal and other fossil fuels is a devastation to Americas economy. Its also easy to understand that its clear, intentional treachery against America! The market will supply the energy innovations the country needs/wants; the role of government is to reduce regulatory burden, and get out of the way. EPA: 30 new regulations coming and 170+ major policy rules; restricts Appalachia coal mining permits. EPA has the usual destructive government ideology: no cost is too much. Statistics show that for all Jimmy Carters alternative energy costs to America, in all these years, alternative energy has barely made a dent in Americas overall energy usage. Does America now want to go through the same folly, again, even while America is barely hanging on, economically and otherwise? If the democrat communist party is allowed, with its treacheries, to finish off America, I can see them now pronouncing how it was everyones fault but their own, one of their standard mantras (lies). Obama is still considering a new tax on gasoline, based on aggregate mileage. Other treacheries include: Obamas moratorium on Gulf drilling (while sending a large amount of our money to Brazil to drill in the gulf for oil), other prohibitions on drilling, decades long prohibition on building new refineries, lies that LETTERS TO THE EDITOR new drilling wont help... Heres an assessment from American Legislative Exchange Council (alec.org): EPAs regulatory train wreck: Strategies for State Legislators beneficial link between a robust economy and healthy environment. Jeffersonian principles of free markets, limited govt, federalism, individual liberty. To celebrate its 40th birthday (12/10), EPA undertook one of the most hostile regulatory assaults on energy affordability and electric reliability in our nations history. Pending are greenhouse gas emissions rules/laws. Next several years: over-reaching air and water rules, damage: jobs, economy, energy costs, intl. competitiveness, trample states rights. See SECO News, May 2011, as Jim Duncan 1) exposes the destructive job that U.S. government has done, for decades, re American energy. 2) STOP the EPA, exposing EPAs specific aim at Florida, to damage our energy industry, and the large, unnecessary costs that this treacherous agency is aiming at us! Im grateful that my electric company and its CEO (unlike federal government) are with us, rather than against us! But Duncan acknowledges that he and other patriots have a hard fight, and victory is not certain, especially if so many Americans remain so apathetic, or even on the side of traitors. Paul Zeigler Ocala Alan GraysonRe: Your, The re-emergence of a candidate I honor Alan Grayson. He was one of the few congress persons with guts enough to loudly, proclaim his positions. His beliefs are straight forward as he sees them, they are not bought. This in Congress is refreshing. Our present congress, whether Democratic or Republican, has been bought and paid for by banks, Wall Street, large corporations oil companies etc.. The votes are dictated by lobbyists and/or many ideological dogmas. The interests of the American people have become secondary to a large extent. This wonderful country is rapidly deteriorating; jobs, education, skills, infrastructure all are diminishing, as we watch Congress and the moneyed interests betraying us. Alan Grayson at least has the courage to speak up, one of the few. Erwin Fluss OTOW, Ocala More letters, Page 10 E veryone knows that Dick and Jane have a dog named Spot. Even though this Dick and Jane like dogs, we dont have one. But in honor of the Dog Days of Summer, Pun Alley has some spotless stories followed by some doggone ones. Elvis lives Andrews mother gave him ten dollars to buy lunch for himself and his sister Terri at the diner down the street. On the way they passed a man selling puppies for ten dollars each. Unable to resist, Andrew bought one, named it Elvis, and went home. While he stayed outside, playing with it, Terri went inside. Back so soon? her mother asked. Yes, said Terri. Im afraid we never made it to the diner. Why not? Because Andrew spent ten dollars on Elvis. Elvis? Thats right, explained Terri. He ate nothin, bought a hound dog. Doggone When a lady discovered that her dog was not moving she took it to the animal clinic. After a brief examination, the vet pronounced the dog dead. Are you sure? the distraught woman asked. Isnt there something more you can do? The vet brought in a cat and put it by the dog. The cat sniffed the dog from head to toe and left. Then a Labador Retriever was bought in. The dog walked over to the still animal, sniffed him, hit him with his paw a few times, then quietly turned and walked away. Well, that confirms it, the vet announced. Your dog is dead. Satisfied that the vet had done everything possible, the woman sighed, How much do I owe you? That will be $330, the vet replied. I dont believe it! screamed the woman. What did you do that could possibly cost $330? Well, replied the vet, its $30 for the office visit and $300 for the CAT scan and the Lab tests. Fire away A nursery school teacher was delivering an SUV of kids home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dogs duties. They use him to keep crowds back, said one youngster. No, said another, hes just for good luck. A third child brought the argument to a close. They use the dogs, she said firmly, to find the fire hydrant. Doggie bites The dog that swallowed a watch ended up with a bunch of ticks. When the cross-eyed dog chased a squirrel in the woods he kept barking up the wrong tree. Food for bad dogs is bought by the pound. The dog limped into the old western saloon and said, Im looking for the man who shot my paw. You can tell a dogwood tree by its bark. One reason the dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue. Two new dogs A girl was visiting her friend who had acquired two new dogs and asked the dogs names. The friend said that one was named Rolex and one was named Timex. The girl said, Whoever heard of someone naming dogs like that? Hellooooo, she answered, Theyre watch dogs! No problem A man who had been married for ten years consulted a marriage counselor. When I first married, he said, I was very happy. Id come home from a hard day at work. My dog would race around barking, and my wife would bring me my slippers. Now everythings changed. When I come home, my dog brings me my slippers, and my wife barks at me! I dont know what youre complaining about, said the marriage counselor. Youre still getting the same service. Sound answer A boy visited his uncle on a ranch right in the middle of nowhere, among sand and cactuses in the west. After the sunset, the boy heard strange howling. He got frightened and ran to his uncle. What is that sound? the boy asked. Those are coyotes. Coyotes? What are they? They look a lot like dogs. In fact, you can consider them a kind of dog. The boy wants to know more. Why are they making that frightening noise? See, nephew, there arent many trees around here. All we got are cactuses! Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Friday, July 22, 2011 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, July 22, 2011 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 Make the paymentsTo the president: President Obama, you say you cannot guarantee that Social Security recipients will get their monthly checks if Republicans refuse to raise the debt limit. Come now, Mr. President; all you have to do is open that lockbox wherein the Social Security Trust Fund resides, take out the money, and make the payments. I think you are just trying to scare me. Baxter B. Stinson Oak RunObama and Social Security In 1950, we helped produce a daily nationally syndicated newspaper feature called, Spotlight on Business, created by the Bureau of Labor Statistics top statistician, Morris Katz, One day the features subject was the market basket used to create and maintain the Cost of Living index. We asked Katz how they selected the items for the basket. He laughingly replied, Whatever Harry (President Harry S. Truman) wants, is what Harry gets. There is no indication that this policy changed after Congress authorized annual cost of living adjustments for people who receive Social Security benefits and other types of federal pensions. All of us who have had to buy groceries, hardware, services, gasoline, etc. know that our cost of living has been increasing steadily, year after year, and it did not stop increasing after President Obama took office. What was stopped by the Obama administration, were Social Security cost of living adjustments for millions of older Americans, many of whom are widows with no other source of income and extremely limited possibilities of being able to earn additional income in todays depressed job market. So, when President Obama recently said that he might not be able to send out Social Security pension checks next month, thats exactly what he might do. However, since President Obama is in the midst of his 2012 election campaign, he may decide it would be better to not only send out the Social Security checks, but cost of living adjustment checks too. Well, well just have to wait and see. David U. Groves Ocala Are we broke?I refuse to acknowledge that America is out of money broke. We are rapidly plunging toward insolvency, and will be in default on Aug. 3, unless Congress can agree before then on the three steps that it must take to mend our debt-crisis: (1) Dont raise the debt-ceiling. If it is there, Congress will spend it! (2) Dont increase taxes. Congress and President Obama screwed it up! We shouldnt have to pay for those screw-ups! (3) DO enact meaningful, drastic spending cuts but not to Social Security and Medicare most Americans already paid for these. We currently have a revenue stream that allows us to pay the interest on our debt. We continue to hand out entitlement money even too those who are not entitled to that money. However, when our debt-holders demand the principle on our debt and America suddenly realizes it doesnt have the money to pay it; when our citizens are rioting in the streets because America cant afford to give them their handouts then America will be officially broke. Obama has clearly demonstrated that he is not an effective leader. He can raise $86 million for his re-election campaign in no time at all. But, hes had 29 months to get the economy back on track and has only succeeded in making it much worse. Now he is demanding that Congress fix the economy immediately and storms out of the debt-ceiling talks because hes not getting his way. Wheres the leadership? I pray daily that we never have to experience truly being broke. But, unless we pray a lot louder, yell and scream to Congress a lot louder, unless we slam on the breaks and reverse course quickly, thats the direction in which we are headed. Joe OHara Ocala Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com J on Stewart said: And now I thought we might have a moment, however brief, for some sincerity. If thats OK I know that there are boundaries for a comedian / pundit / talker guy, and Im sure that Ill find out tomorrow how I have violated them. So, uh, what exactly was this? I cant control what people think this was: I can only tell you my intentions. He was discussing the rally he held in Washington, there was no intention to ridicule people of faith, or people of activism. He was quite vehement in his statements we should not look down our noses at the heartland or suggest that times are not difficult. No soothing words that we have nothing to fear we most certainly do. But we live now in hard times, not end times. And we can have animus, and not be enemies. But unfortunately, one of our main tools in delineating the two broke. The countrys 24-hour, political pundit perpetual panic conflictinator did not cause our problems, but its existence makes solving them that much harder. The press can hold its magnifying glass up to our problems, bringing them into focus, illuminating issues heretofore unseen. Or they can use that magnifying glass to light ants on fire, and then perhaps host a week of shows on the dangerous, unexpected flaming ants epidemic. If we amplify everything, we hear nothing. He went on to mention terrorists, racists, theocrats and even Stalinists; he feels those are titles that must be earned! You must have the resume! Not being able to distinguish between real racists and Tea Party-ers, or real bigots and Juan Williams or Rick Sanchez is an insult not only to those people, but to the racists themselves, who have put in the exhausting effort it takes to hate. Just as the inability to distinguish terrorists from Muslims makes us less safe, not more. The press is our immune system. If it overreacts to everything, we actually get sicker and, perhaps, eczema. And yet... I feel good. Strangely, calmly, good. Because the image of Americans that is reflected back to us by our political and media process is false. It is us, through a funhouse mirror and not the good kind that makes you look slim in the waist, and maybe taller, but the kind where you have a giant forehead, and an ass shaped like a month-old pumpkin, and one eyeball. He asks why would we work together? Why would you reach across the aisle, to a pumpkin shaped forehead? If this picture of us were true, of course our inability to solve problems would actually be quite sane and reasonable why would you work with Marxists actively subverting our Constitution, and homophobes who see no ones humanity but their own? He went on to discuss hearing every day how fragile our country is, on the brink of catastrophe, torn by polarizing hate, and how its a shame that we cant work together to get things done. The truth is, we do! We work together to get things done every day! The only place we dont is here (in Washington) or on cable TV! But Americans dont live here, or on cable TV. Where we live, our values and principles form the foundation that sustains us while we get things donenot the barriers that prevent us from getting things done. Most Americans dont live their lives solely as Democrats, Republicans, liberals or conservatives. Americans live their lives more as people that are just a little bit late for something they have to do. Often something they do not want to do! But they do it. Impossible things, every day, that are only made possible through the little, reasonable compromises we all make. He pointed to the video screen which showed traffic and asked us to look. This is where we are, this is who we are. Thats a schoolteacher who probably think his taxes are too high, hes going to work. Theres another car, a woman with two small kids, cant really think about anything else right now... A ladys in the NRA loves Oprah. Theres another car, an investment banker, gay, also likes Oprah. Another cars a Latino carpenter; another car, a fundamentalist vacuum salesman. Atheist obstetrician. Mormon Jay-Z fan. But this is us. Every one of the cars that you see is filled with individuals of strong belief, and principles they hold dear often principles and beliefs in direct opposition to their fellow travelers. And yet, these millions of cars must somehow find a way to squeeze, one by one, into a milelong, 30-foot-wide tunnel, carved underneath a mighty river. And they do it, concession by concession: you go, then Ill go. You go, then Ill go. You go, then Ill go.

TROUT Special to the Citizen In the competition and cultural clutter of religious practices, its refreshing to find a simple church that helps people discover a personal faith in Jesus. Meeting just off the Corridor in the Hills of Ocala Community Center, SonRise Christian Church loves to help people discover a personal faith and corporate life in a church family. The congregation comprises people from 15 states and four countries. The diversity is obvious. The fellowship is contagious. The people want to be in church, not out of necessity but out of the desire to encourage one another and be encouraged by each other. The result is simply a beautifuleffect of worship. People can be themselves, be accepted and be enriched in their faith. SonRise is a new congregation in southwest Marion County. As an independent Christian Church, there is no denominational affiliation, no overseeing agency or religious denomination to which the congregation answers or receives orders. The simiplicity of taking the New Testament as its only rule of faith and practice allows worshipers to learn and live the teachings of Jesus, encourages spiritual discipline and faith, and serve and light the community with the radiance of biblical Christianity. Simplicity is making the journey of this life with just enough baggage. We become encumbered by religious clutter and extemporaneous additions to the faith practiced in the early church. Its important to find ones spiritual path, pursue it and live without guilt and regret. At SonRise we keep faith in Jesus simple. We keep it practical. We keep it personal. SonRise provides an opportunity for children and teens to attend summer camp. The congregation supports relief efforts in other countries. A homeless family received furniture and household goods. The church has a simple message: Help where we can with what we can in the name of Jesus. Everyone needs a new day and a fresh rising of the sun. A fresh start is always welcome. The opportunity to begin or continue ones spiritual journey encourages people from every background to come together to worship, learn and foster their personal faith. If you desire a simple church with a clear message from the Bible, SonRise is an opportunity you should discover. Its as simple as that.Mark L. Trout is pastor of SonRise Christian Church. He can be reached at 352-895-0040 or sonrisecc@live.com. The website is sonriseccofmarioncounty.org (no hyphens in address).

Its okayyou go, then I go. And sure, at some point, there will be a selfish jerk who zips up the shoulder, and cuts in at the last minute. But that individual is rare, and he is scorned, and he is not hired as an analyst! He cheers us telling us we as a people instinctively know that if we are to get through the darkness and back into the light, we have to work together. And the truth is there will always be darkness, and sometimes the light at the end of the tunnel isnt always the Promised Land. And deep inside our gut we know this to be true, even though he finished with a wry comment: The light at the end of the tunnel could be New Jersey. It is better to vote for what you want and not get it than it is to vote for what you dont want and get it. Eugene V. Debs As I was saying. Wendy England Binnie, a novelist and columnist, lives in Oak Trace Villas. WENDYCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 W hoever said, All good things must come to an end, knew whereof he spoke. Why is it that something really good goes by so quickly and something really bad hangs around forever, or so it seems? Let me explain a little bit of what I mean. When the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, over my vociferous objections, cooks broccoli, the smell stays in the air for months. However, the invigorating aroma of an Apple fritter dissipates in a matter of moments. Except, of course, when Im trying to eat one behind you know whos back and she can smell it five days before I eat it. I dont smell an Apple fritter, do I? she inquires. Youre not eating an apple fritter? she prods. There better not be any apple fritters in this house, she demands. My philosophy is simply this, what she cant smell cant hurt me. The only problem is, she can smell, and usually its a rat, namely me. However, if I would pontificate 1/10 of the time about the smell of broccoli in the house I would not have to worry about smelling broccoli in the house. If you know what I mean. But if it is good, it seems to go by so very quickly. This past week something very good came to a very conclusive end. Through no effort of my own, I concluded the fifth decade of my life. I am just glad that at the conclusion of this decade I was around to see it. What I remember about the 50s is another matter altogether. As part of the baby boomer generation, another birthday boomed for Bidding a fond farewell to the 50s me. This boom was a very significant one. I have bidden a fond farewell to my 50s. Ah, what a decade that was. It is a very good thing that the 50s come between the 40s and the 60s. Whoever devised this scenario knew something about human nature. When you are in your 40s, you, for some unknown reason, think you are still in your 20s. Many people in their 40s have bought into the notion that the 40s is the new 20s. Henceforth, most people, usually men, treat their body as if it was a 25-year-old man in perfect health. Now, a 45-yearold body does not have the wisdom to realize that it is no longer 25. And so you have men in their 40s running and jumping and doing things that their body thinks it can do but it really cant. A body in the 40s is not mature enough for pain to register. In fact, no man in his 40s would acknowledge the fact that he has the pain. His wife, contrariwise, acknowledges the pain in her life. But thats another story. Once a man gets into his 50s, he has matured enough to the fact that he knows there are many things he physically cannot do. He knows, for instance, a 50-something body is not like a 20-something body, therefore, he can begin slacking off on the physical stuff. Although, some 50something men have not matured enough to understand the significance of the fifth decade. O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L.

But in spite of all of that, the 50s have been a wonderful time for me. It is during the 50-something the man accomplishes most of his work. During his 40s, he is trying to pretend he is still in his 20s, but by the time he hits that magic 50, he is more interested in accomplishing things in his career. Work is very important at this phase of life. And work he does, because at this stage he has a mortgage, a family and bills coming out both his back pockets faster than it goes in. If he has children, he enters the 50s with several teenagers in the house and maybe some grandchildren. This is enough to drive any man to work, if not crazy. For any man to conclude the fifth decade without permanent residence in the Looney farm is quite an accomplishment. By the mid-50s, things begin to become all quiet on the Western front. Many people refer to this as the empty nest syndrome. All I can say is, hallelujah for the empty nest syndrome. I just hope some doctor does not come up with a cure for this empty nest syndrome. The empty nest syndrome is Gods way of saying thank you for bringing up your family. Now, the house is all quiet and when I go to the refrigerator, there is actually something in the refrigerator. Sometimes I just open the refrigerator door and stare at the contents. It is wonderful to go to the refrigerator and actually find something in it you can eat. It has been a little difficult for me to say farewell to the 50s. I have enjoyed every year of that decade. I am not prepared to say that I am any wiser but I am prepared to say I am older. And my goal in life is to get older and older. Because, when you stop getting older it is all over. The Bible gives him instructions about getting older. The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head (Proverbs 20:29 KJV). The hoary [grey head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness (Proverbs 16:31 KJV). I bid a fond farewell to the 50s. Thanks for the memories. The Rev. James L.

For any man to conclude the fifth decade without permanent residence in the Looney farm is quite an accomplishment. By the mid-50s, things begin to become all quiet on the Western front. Many people refer to this as the empty nest syndrome. All I can say is, hallelujah for the empty nest syndrome. I just hope some doctor does not come up with a cure for this empty nest syndrome. The empty nest syndrome is Gods way of saying thank you for bringing up your family. Now, the house is all quiet and when I go to the refrigerator, there is actually something in the refrigerator. Sometimes I just open the refrigerator door and stare at the contents. It is wonderful to go to the refrigerator and actually find something in it you can eat. It has been a little difficult for me to say farewell to the 50s. I have enjoyed every year of that decade. I am not prepared to say that I am any wiser but I am prepared to say I am older. And my goal in life is to get older and older. Because, when you stop getting older it is all over. The Bible gives him instructions about getting older. The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head (Proverbs 20:29 KJV). The hoary [grey head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness (Proverbs 16:31 KJV). I bid a fond farewell to the 50s. Thanks for the memories. The Rev. James L.

Its okayyou go, then I go. And sure, at some point, there will be a selfish jerk who zips up the shoulder, and cuts in at the last minute. But that individual is rare, and he is scorned, and he is not hired as an analyst! He cheers us telling us we as a people instinctively know that if we are to get through the darkness and back into the light, we have to work together. And the truth is there will always be darkness, and sometimes the light at the end of the tunnel isnt always the Promised Land. And deep inside our gut we know this to be true, even though he finished with a wry comment: The light at the end of the tunnel could be New Jersey. It is better to vote for what you want and not get it than it is to vote for what you dont want and get it. Eugene V. Debs As I was saying. Wendy England Binnie, a novelist and columnist, lives in Oak Trace Villas. WENDYCONTINUED FROM PAGE 10 W hoever said, All good things must come to an end, knew whereof he spoke. Why is it that something really good goes by so quickly and something really bad hangs around forever, or so it seems? Let me explain a little bit of what I mean. When the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, over my vociferous objections, cooks broccoli, the smell stays in the air for months. However, the invigorating aroma of an Apple fritter dissipates in a matter of moments. Except, of course, when Im trying to eat one behind you know whos back and she can smell it five days before I eat it. I dont smell an Apple fritter, do I? she inquires. Youre not eating an apple fritter? she prods. There better not be any apple fritters in this house, she demands. My philosophy is simply this, what she cant smell cant hurt me. The only problem is, she can smell, and usually its a rat, namely me. However, if I would pontificate 1/10 of the time about the smell of broccoli in the house I would not have to worry about smelling broccoli in the house. If you know what I mean. But if it is good, it seems to go by so very quickly. This past week something very good came to a very conclusive end. Through no effort of my own, I concluded the fifth decade of my life. I am just glad that at the conclusion of this decade I was around to see it. What I remember about the 50s is another matter altogether. As part of the baby boomer generation, another birthday boomed for Bidding a fond farewell to the 50s me. This boom was a very significant one. I have bidden a fond farewell to my 50s. Ah, what a decade that was. It is a very good thing that the 50s come between the 40s and the 60s. Whoever devised this scenario knew something about human nature. When you are in your 40s, you, for some unknown reason, think you are still in your 20s. Many people in their 40s have bought into the notion that the 40s is the new 20s. Henceforth, most people, usually men, treat their body as if it was a 25-year-old man in perfect health. Now, a 45-yearold body does not have the wisdom to realize that it is no longer 25. And so you have men in their 40s running and jumping and doing things that their body thinks it can do but it really cant. A body in the 40s is not mature enough for pain to register. In fact, no man in his 40s would acknowledge the fact that he has the pain. His wife, contrariwise, acknowledges the pain in her life. But thats another story. Once a man gets into his 50s, he has matured enough to the fact that he knows there are many things he physically cannot do. He knows, for instance, a 50-something body is not like a 20-something body, therefore, he can begin slacking off on the physical stuff. Although, some 50something men have not matured enough to understand the significance of the fifth decade. O UT TO PASTOR J S Rev. James L.

Friday, July 22, 2011 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, July 22, 2011 www.smcitizen.com LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 Make the paymentsTo the president: President Obama, you say you cannot guarantee that Social Security recipients will get their monthly checks if Republicans refuse to raise the debt limit. Come now, Mr. President; all you have to do is open that lockbox wherein the Social Security Trust Fund resides, take out the money, and make the payments. I think you are just trying to scare me. Baxter B. Stinson Oak RunObama and Social Security In 1950, we helped produce a daily nationally syndicated newspaper feature called, Spotlight on Business, created by the Bureau of Labor Statistics top statistician, Morris Katz, One day the features subject was the market basket used to create and maintain the Cost of Living index. We asked Katz how they selected the items for the basket. He laughingly replied, Whatever Harry (President Harry S. Truman) wants, is what Harry gets. There is no indication that this policy changed after Congress authorized annual cost of living adjustments for people who receive Social Security benefits and other types of federal pensions. All of us who have had to buy groceries, hardware, services, gasoline, etc. know that our cost of living has been increasing steadily, year after year, and it did not stop increasing after President Obama took office. What was stopped by the Obama administration, were Social Security cost of living adjustments for millions of older Americans, many of whom are widows with no other source of income and extremely limited possibilities of being able to earn additional income in todays depressed job market. So, when President Obama recently said that he might not be able to send out Social Security pension checks next month, thats exactly what he might do. However, since President Obama is in the midst of his 2012 election campaign, he may decide it would be better to not only send out the Social Security checks, but cost of living adjustment checks too. Well, well just have to wait and see. David U. Groves Ocala Are we broke?I refuse to acknowledge that America is out of money broke. We are rapidly plunging toward insolvency, and will be in default on Aug. 3, unless Congress can agree before then on the three steps that it must take to mend our debt-crisis: (1) Dont raise the debt-ceiling. If it is there, Congress will spend it! (2) Dont increase taxes. Congress and President Obama screwed it up! We shouldnt have to pay for those screw-ups! (3) DO enact meaningful, drastic spending cuts but not to Social Security and Medicare most Americans already paid for these. We currently have a revenue stream that allows us to pay the interest on our debt. We continue to hand out entitlement money even too those who are not entitled to that money. However, when our debt-holders demand the principle on our debt and America suddenly realizes it doesnt have the money to pay it; when our citizens are rioting in the streets because America cant afford to give them their handouts then America will be officially broke. Obama has clearly demonstrated that he is not an effective leader. He can raise $86 million for his re-election campaign in no time at all. But, hes had 29 months to get the economy back on track and has only succeeded in making it much worse. Now he is demanding that Congress fix the economy immediately and storms out of the debt-ceiling talks because hes not getting his way. Wheres the leadership? I pray daily that we never have to experience truly being broke. But, unless we pray a lot louder, yell and scream to Congress a lot louder, unless we slam on the breaks and reverse course quickly, thats the direction in which we are headed. Joe OHara Ocala Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com J on Stewart said: And now I thought we might have a moment, however brief, for some sincerity. If thats OK I know that there are boundaries for a comedian / pundit / talker guy, and Im sure that Ill find out tomorrow how I have violated them. So, uh, what exactly was this? I cant control what people think this was: I can only tell you my intentions. He was discussing the rally he held in Washington, there was no intention to ridicule people of faith, or people of activism. He was quite vehement in his statements we should not look down our noses at the heartland or suggest that times are not difficult. No soothing words that we have nothing to fear we most certainly do. But we live now in hard times, not end times. And we can have animus, and not be enemies. But unfortunately, one of our main tools in delineating the two broke. The countrys 24-hour, political pundit perpetual panic conflictinator did not cause our problems, but its existence makes solving them that much harder. The press can hold its magnifying glass up to our problems, bringing them into focus, illuminating issues heretofore unseen. Or they can use that magnifying glass to light ants on fire, and then perhaps host a week of shows on the dangerous, unexpected flaming ants epidemic. If we amplify everything, we hear nothing. He went on to mention terrorists, racists, theocrats and even Stalinists; he feels those are titles that must be earned! You must have the resume! Not being able to distinguish between real racists and Tea Party-ers, or real bigots and Juan Williams or Rick Sanchez is an insult not only to those people, but to the racists themselves, who have put in the exhausting effort it takes to hate. Just as the inability to distinguish terrorists from Muslims makes us less safe, not more. The press is our immune system. If it overreacts to everything, we actually get sicker and, perhaps, eczema. And yet... I feel good. Strangely, calmly, good. Because the image of Americans that is reflected back to us by our political and media process is false. It is us, through a funhouse mirror and not the good kind that makes you look slim in the waist, and maybe taller, but the kind where you have a giant forehead, and an ass shaped like a month-old pumpkin, and one eyeball. He asks why would we work together? Why would you reach across the aisle, to a pumpkin shaped forehead? If this picture of us were true, of course our inability to solve problems would actually be quite sane and reasonable why would you work with Marxists actively subverting our Constitution, and homophobes who see no ones humanity but their own? He went on to discuss hearing every day how fragile our country is, on the brink of catastrophe, torn by polarizing hate, and how its a shame that we cant work together to get things done. The truth is, we do! We work together to get things done every day! The only place we dont is here (in Washington) or on cable TV! But Americans dont live here, or on cable TV. Where we live, our values and principles form the foundation that sustains us while we get things donenot the barriers that prevent us from getting things done. Most Americans dont live their lives solely as Democrats, Republicans, liberals or conservatives. Americans live their lives more as people that are just a little bit late for something they have to do. Often something they do not want to do! But they do it. Impossible things, every day, that are only made possible through the little, reasonable compromises we all make. He pointed to the video screen which showed traffic and asked us to look.

TROUT Special to the Citizen In the competition and cultural clutter of religious practices, its refreshing to find a simple church that helps people discover a personal faith in Jesus. Meeting just off the Corridor in the Hills of Ocala Community Center, SonRise Christian Church loves to help people discover a personal faith and corporate life in a church family. The congregation comprises people from 15 states and four countries. The diversity is obvious. The fellowship is contagious. The people want to be in church, not out of necessity but out of the desire to encourage one another and be encouraged by each other. The result is simply a beautifuleffect of worship. People can be themselves, be accepted and be enriched in their faith. SonRise is a new congregation in southwest Marion County. As an independent Christian Church, there is no denominational affiliation, no overseeing agency or religious denomination to which the congregation answers or receives orders. The simiplicity of taking the New Testament as its only rule of faith and practice allows worshipers to learn and live the teachings of Jesus, encourages spiritual discipline and faith, and serve and light the community with the radiance of biblical Christianity. Simplicity is making the journey of this life with just enough baggage. We become encumbered by religious clutter and extemporaneous additions to the faith practiced in the early church. Its important to find ones spiritual path, pursue it and live without guilt and regret. At SonRise we keep faith in Jesus simple. We keep it practical. We keep it personal. SonRise provides an opportunity for children and teens to attend summer camp. The congregation supports relief efforts in other countries. A homeless family received furniture and household goods. The church has a simple message: Help where we can with what we can in the name of Jesus. Everyone needs a new day and a fresh rising of the sun. A fresh start is always welcome. The opportunity to begin or continue ones spiritual journey encourages people from every background to come together to worship, learn and foster their personal faith. If you desire a simple church with a clear message from the Bible, SonRise is an opportunity you should discover. Its as simple as that.Mark L. Trout is pastor of SonRise Christian Church. He can be reached at 352-895-0040 or sonrisecc@live.com. The website is sonriseccofmarioncounty.org (no hyphens in address).

Friday, July 22, 2011 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, July 22, 2011 www.smcitizen.com M AINTAIN THE H EALTH OF Y OUR B USINESS Advertise in Energy, backbone of the American economyHows that alternative/green energy working for you? Is it helping run your motor vehicle? Have you been putting it in your gas tank, after the price of gasoline went up so much since last year? Are you using some nice green gasoline? Have you noticed that the economy has declined some more, as gasoline and other fossil fuel prices have risen? Are you surprised at that? If so, youve bought into the lies that have come out of government/media about the great wonders of alternative/green energy, and the need to continually assault Americas fossil fuel industries. (oil, natural gas, coal). The occupant of the White House has commissioned his number one weapon/enemy against the American economy, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) to do great damage to all American fossil fuel production, with increased regulation on the coal industry (for electric, commercial, manufacturing), and the absurd dishonesty of calling carbon dioxide a health hazard as an excuse to increase their assault on fossil fuels. At the 2008 annual meeting, I listened to Jim Duncan, CEO of electric company SECO, just before Americas economy crashed big, and the Democrats were hollering crisis, as their excuse to bury America in much more debt. (Stimulus) and regulation that have done worse than nothing for Americas economy or other well-being, because the massive debt and regulatory increases have been intended to hurt, not help America. In 2008, and again this year, I thanked Mr. Duncan for his honest and important assessment. In 2008, I was a bit surprised at the treachery of cap and trade ideas (which I first learned about from Duncan) to bury America even further in recession. Since then, no government treachery is surprising, as it keeps rolling out, especially from the White House and his czars and agencies. Jims (Duncan) more recent warning is about the EPA, with its ongoing, brazen attempts to regulate American energy industries into oblivion and, thus, America itself, into oblivion. Meanwhile, we continue to hear the joke coming from the White House, that its occupant cares about jobs and the economy, while he does all he can to ruin the economy and all worthwhile jobs.) Eight-five percent of Americas energy comes from fossil fuels; 50 percent of American electricity comes from coal, by far Americas most abundant and easily accessible source of energy. Its easy to see that an assault on coal and other fossil fuels is a devastation to Americas economy. Its also easy to understand that its clear, intentional treachery against America! The market will supply the energy innovations the country needs/wants; the role of government is to reduce regulatory burden, and get out of the way. EPA: 30 new regulations coming and 170+ major policy rules; restricts Appalachia coal mining permits. EPA has the usual destructive government ideology: no cost is too much. Statistics show that for all Jimmy Carters alternative energy costs to America, in all these years, alternative energy has barely made a dent in Americas overall energy usage. Does America now want to go through the same folly, again, even while America is barely hanging on, economically and otherwise? If the democrat communist party is allowed, with its treacheries, to finish off America, I can see them now pronouncing how it was everyones fault but their own, one of their standard mantras (lies). Obama is still considering a new tax on gasoline, based on aggregate mileage. Other treacheries include: Obamas moratorium on Gulf drilling (while sending a large amount of our money to Brazil to drill in the gulf for oil), other prohibitions on drilling, decades long prohibition on building new refineries, lies that LETTERS TO THE EDITOR new drilling wont help... Heres an assessment from American Legislative Exchange Council (alec.org): EPAs regulatory train wreck: Strategies for State Legislators beneficial link between a robust economy and healthy environment. Jeffersonian principles of free markets, limited govt, federalism, individual liberty. To celebrate its 40th birthday (12/10), EPA undertook one of the most hostile regulatory assaults on energy affordability and electric reliability in our nations history. Pending are greenhouse gas emissions rules/laws. Next several years: over-reaching air and water rules, damage: jobs, economy, energy costs, intl. competitiveness, trample states rights. See SECO News, May 2011, as Jim Duncan 1) exposes the destructive job that U.S. government has done, for decades, re American energy. 2) STOP the EPA, exposing EPAs specific aim at Florida, to damage our energy industry, and the large, unnecessary costs that this treacherous agency is aiming at us! Im grateful that my electric company and its CEO (unlike federal government) are with us, rather than against us! But Duncan acknowledges that he and other patriots have a hard fight, and victory is not certain, especially if so many Americans remain so apathetic, or even on the side of traitors. Paul Zeigler Ocala Alan GraysonRe: Your, The re-emergence of a candidate I honor Alan Grayson. He was one of the few congress persons with guts enough to loudly, proclaim his positions. His beliefs are straight forward as he sees them, they are not bought. This in Congress is refreshing. Our present congress, whether Democratic or Republican, has been bought and paid for by banks, Wall Street, large corporations oil companies etc.. The votes are dictated by lobbyists and/or many ideological dogmas. The interests of the American people have become secondary to a large extent. This wonderful country is rapidly deteriorating; jobs, education, skills, infrastructure all are diminishing, as we watch Congress and the moneyed interests betraying us. Alan Grayson at least has the courage to speak up, one of the few. Erwin Fluss OTOW, Ocala More letters, Page 10 E veryone knows that Dick and Jane have a dog named Spot. Even though this Dick and Jane like dogs, we dont have one. But in honor of the Dog Days of Summer, Pun Alley has some spotless stories followed by some doggone ones. Elvis lives Andrews mother gave him ten dollars to buy lunch for himself and his sister Terri at the diner down the street. On the way they passed a man selling puppies for ten dollars each. Unable to resist, Andrew bought one, named it Elvis, and went home. While he stayed outside, playing with it, Terri went inside. Back so soon? her mother asked. Yes, said Terri. Im afraid we never made it to the diner. Why not? Because Andrew spent ten dollars on Elvis. Elvis? Thats right, explained Terri. He ate nothin, bought a hound dog. Doggone When a lady discovered that her dog was not moving she took it to the animal clinic. After a brief examination, the vet pronounced the dog dead. Are you sure? the distraught woman asked. Isnt there something more you can do? The vet brought in a cat and put it by the dog. The cat sniffed the dog from head to toe and left. Then a Labador Retriever was bought in. The dog walked over to the still animal, sniffed him, hit him with his paw a few times, then quietly turned and walked away. Well, that confirms it, the vet announced. Your dog is dead. Satisfied that the vet had done everything possible, the woman sighed, How much do I owe you? That will be $330, the vet replied. I dont believe it! screamed the woman. What did you do that could possibly cost $330? Well, replied the vet, its $30 for the office visit and $300 for the CAT scan and the Lab tests. Fire away A nursery school teacher was delivering an SUV of kids home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dogs duties. They use him to keep crowds back, said one youngster. No, said another, hes just for good luck. A third child brought the argument to a close. They use the dogs, she said firmly, to find the fire hydrant. Doggie bites The dog that swallowed a watch ended up with a bunch of ticks. When the cross-eyed dog chased a squirrel in the woods he kept barking up the wrong tree. Food for bad dogs is bought by the pound. The dog limped into the old western saloon and said, Im looking for the man who shot my paw. You can tell a dogwood tree by its bark. One reason the dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue. Two new dogs A girl was visiting her friend who had acquired two new dogs and asked the dogs names. The friend said that one was named Rolex and one was named Timex. The girl said, Whoever heard of someone naming dogs like that? Hellooooo, she answered, Theyre watch dogs! No problem A man who had been married for ten years consulted a marriage counselor. When I first married, he said, I was very happy. Id come home from a hard day at work. My dog would race around barking, and my wife would bring me my slippers. Now everythings changed. When I come home, my dog brings me my slippers, and my wife barks at me! I dont know what youre complaining about, said the marriage counselor. Youre still getting the same service. Sound answer A boy visited his uncle on a ranch right in the middle of nowhere, among sand and cactuses in the west. After the sunset, the boy heard strange howling. He got frightened and ran to his uncle. What is that sound? the boy asked. Those are coyotes. Coyotes? What are they? They look a lot like dogs. In fact, you can consider them a kind of dog. The boy wants to know more. Why are they making that frightening noise? See, nephew, there arent many trees around here. All we got are cactuses! Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

Friday, July 22, 2011 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com The Right Choices For I f youve been to a doctors office lately you probably had an opportunity to read a magazine or two or three. Whether the magazine was focused on news, sports, gardening, mechanics, cooking, fashion, or humor, it included at least one advertisement suggesting a medication you might want to discuss with your doctor. Its important to answer honestly the questions which medication advertisements suggest. For example Do you have too much fat in your blood? or Do you want to get a better grip on life? Magazines and television have opened a wide world of treatments for many conditions with which we already suffer. However some ads call our attention to ailments even hypochondriacs have never heard of. Unless turning magazine pages causes you to doze off (you might want to ask the doctor about that.), you may have noticed a common pattern in health ads. Often theres a smiling person who suggests You dont have to suffer like I did with ingrown toenails. Another is Gee, Sis, you ought to discuss these symptoms with your doctor. The ads dont say whether Sis tweeted back Mind your own business! The happy-face blurbs are usually short. Most end by suggesting Please read patient information on the next page. The headline on the flip side says: Important safety information about Relievo (a fictitious remedy for everything). The details of the reverse page may cause you to ask Why didnt I take chemistry in high school, or at least volunteer for a first aid course? Those who took chemistry may regret that they sat near the windows and dozed off in class. Health ads ask similar questions: What is Relievo? What should I tell the doctor before getting Relievo? What are the possible side effects of Relievo? A list of familiar symptoms follows: flushing, nausea, headache, chills, fatigue, fever, hair loss, etc. Call your doctor right away if you have dizziness, chest pain, breathing problems, irregular heartbeat, or amnesia. Other highlighted information includes This product is FDA approved and Consult the package insert for full prescribing information. Good grief, theres more? Recently we received a prescription for Relievo. Inside was enough paper to create a roll of toilet tissue. In tiny type it revealed There is no assurance that Relievo is safe, effective, or appropriate. Ask your doctor. Hello, Doctor? Are you sure about this stuff? Then there are more paragraphs about precautions, side effects, interactions, overdoses, underdoses. Complaints should be reported to the FDA. After all, they approved Relievo. An uncomforting summary of the thousand words about Relievo is Dont blame us if you neglected to ask your doctor before something went wrong. We would suggest one additional caveat: This paper is not recommended as a substitute for body tissue products. www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, July 22, 2011 T he weekend was a little rough around here. Late Friday, Pauline Moore, our former office coordinator and inside salesperson, died at Citrus Memorial Hospital in Inverness after a fairly short battle with leukemia. When I first came to this paper from Levy County two years ago, there was Pauline at the front desk every day greeting people with a smile. She always used to call me kiddo, and at first I thought she couldnt remember my name. Then I realized she called everyone that. We eventually got to be friends, which wasnt hard when you were with her, and some of the moments I remember would come on days around lunch time when she and I would be the only two people in the building, and shed come back to my office, plop down in a chair and just talk. Pauline had some severe eye problems and didnt drive. Every morning her husband Lee faithfully drove her to work from their home in Crystal River, and every afternoon hed come and pick her up. But lunch was on her own, and a lot of us here would go out for lunch and get something and bring it back. In times like this you think of little humorous situations. One day I was going to a popular fast food place and asked if she wanted anything. She said yes, get her a bowl of chili. I did as I was asked. But later that afternoon she stuck her head into my office and said, If I ever ask you to get me chili again, ignore me! You can guess what kind of afternoon she was having. Pauline was always doing things for others. She organized a birthday surprise dinner at a restaurant in Inverness for our general manager, Tricia, and then helped organize a farewell event when Tricia left the company. She was the keeper of the birthday lists, helped by our companys newsletter, and she always had a little goodie bag for everyone on their birthday, even those of us who really dont care to celebrate that much any more. But when we got a cake for her on her birthday, we got scolded but with a twinkle in her eye. She was our first representative at all the business expos that take place out here. The picture on the front of todays paper was taken at one of those events. Last winter, she went on a cruise. When she came back, she complained of a steady sore throat. She finally went to get checked, but was given some antibiotics and sent home. She eventually came back to work, but suddenly that sore throat exploded into a huge swelling in her neck. She resisted our best efforts for a short while, but eventually her husband came and took her to the emergency room to get checked. That was the last time she set foot in the office. She went home and we were told she was recovering. But one day she had to be taken to Citrus Memorial, and there the diagnosis of leukemia came down, shocking all of us. When we went to visit her, because she was undergoing chemo, we had to wear a surgical mask and gloves to enter her room. She spent time in and out of the hospital, and even spent a short time at the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. But she came back and, just a couple of weeks ago, she actually got to go to the supermarket. Little things like that are important when youre confined to home for any length of time I know, Ive been there. But shortly after that, it all went downhill. She was back in the hospital, and then, not too long ago, was moved into the hospice unit at Citrus Memorial. The word came down Friday night that she had died. As of this writing, there have been no plans announced for a service. She always said she didnt want a fuss, and evidently conveyed that feeling to her family as well. Theres a picture of her hanging on the wall in our front office from when she was chosen employee of the month some time back. I hope its allowed to stay there as a reminder to us of the type of person she was, so she can continue to inspire us all. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

She flew back to Orlando. And all that was just in one day this week. Note to the Orlando media: Shes gone. You cant change anything. She is in hiding. And that goes for the national cable media and network shows also. Guess what? Most of us just dont care. There is other news to follow. Our nation is on the verge of financial collapse. Our elected officials arent smart enough to realize the parties both have to compromise. There are walls in local places with dozens of unsolved murders. When it comes to children, we still dont know for sure who killed Trenton Duckett in Lake County. We still dont know what happened to Haleigh Cummings in Putnam County. We dont even know if shes dead or alive. We do know who killed that little boy in New York City who was chopped up into pieces. The suspect is going to plead insanity. There are other stories for Nancy Grace and her ilk to harp on. She, on top of all others, uses this tot mom phrase, which nobody around here calls Casey Anthony, for her own gain and ratings. People around the country think its a common nickname we use. Its not. Get over it, Nancy, its done. By the way, do you folks know who Ereck Plancher was? He was a UCF football player who died on the practice field, and his parents sued. That trial, also in Orlando, was completely overshadowed by the Anthony trial, but when the decision came down about June 30 or July 1, the jury found UCF liable for the death and awarded $10 million. This trial was just as emotional as the Anthony trial, with testimony about sickle cell anemia, and whether the college had properly taken care of the young man after tests on him were performed. These parents also lost a child, and the fact that he was a college football player didnt make it any easier for them to take. But the national media barely made mention of this case. Maybe it made a difference that the defendants were led by a chunky football coach, not a good-looking young lady. We have to wonder if Nancy Grace knows there were two deaths on trial in Orlando at the same time, not just one. After watching her probably not.

I t is with a heavy heart that we announce a cast change for our upcoming play, In St. Louis at the Fair. Peggy Studer who was to take the part of Hazel has sold her home of many years here in Oak Run and is returning to join friends and family in Pennsylvania. We are currently auditioning other members for the part. Peggy and Arnie Studer have been major players with both of our theater groups. They have extensive backgrounds in community theater dating back over 50 years. Their talent and counsel shall be a great loss to Oak Runners. Some years ago Oak Run Little Theatre was struggling to maintain membership and was on the brink of closing down. Peg and Arn stepped up to the plate and pretty much singlehandedly brought it back to its present prominence. They alternately served as president, producer, director and actor for over six straight years. There are not many plays in either of the theater groups that you can mention that they didnt have a hand in. God bless and keep you, Peg and Arn. You will be missed beyond words. The cast and production crew are ready and anxious to commence rehearsals the last week in August and we feel confident that our October play will be winner for Oak Run audiences. Advance ticket information is available by calling Linda Noel (352873-9908) who once again is our ticket chairperson. Linda works tirelessly in this role for both theater groups. We dont know how wed get along without her. Way Off Broadways next meeting will be on Aug. 8 at 7 p.m. in the Palm Grove Club. Correction Re Ocala Honor Flight H.L. Red Zell, USN Ret., has informed this columnist that contrary to what was indicated in the July 15 column, the October Honor Flight will not be the last Ocala Honor Flight. He is an Ocala committee member and states that they will continue with the project until they can no longer locate World War II veterans who qualify. They want as many World War II veterans as possible to apply for the trip to Washington so they may be honored in a very special way. The committee, and its leader Trey Adams, are aware of the age of the veterans and have increased emphasis on health and safety issues. Fundraising is progressing well and there is a solid commitment to an Oct. 27 flight. At present there are over 80 applications from World War II veterans and an overwhelming number of volunteers and escort applications. The committee has acquired an Ocala Honor Flight Hot Line. The number is 352-3519341. The mailing address for applications and donations is Ocala Honor Flight, PO Box 247, Ocala, FL 34478. The various fundraising events, and applications, are on their website www.ocalahonorflight.org and on www.facebook.com on the Ocala Honor Flight page. The Ocala committee has helped form other hubs in neighboring areas. There are Honor Flight committees in The Villages, Lakeland and Citrus County. Interestingly, a demographic study has shown that Citrus County and its surrounding area has more World War II veterans than any other area in the US. Check out the Honor Flight national website www.honorflight.org for information about hubs across the country. The history of the Honor Flight on this website is well worth reading. Do you remember?

LILA IVEY Special to the Citizen The philosophy behind end-of-life treatment for hospice patients is compassionate comfort care. When the hope of a cure is no longer an option, patients may live out their days in comfort thanks to the expertise of the hospice team in administering appropriate medications and providing emotional support for both the patient and family. Now Hospice of Marion County is adding yet another level of comfort care in the form of an ancient art rediscovered in the 19th century by a Japanese physician. Reiki (pronounced RAY-kee) is a modern therapeutic application using the doctors simple methodology. Scientists are baffled at how this non-invasive system works, but it is known that the bodys natural electromagnetic field, both the patients and the practitioners, come into play, creating a synergistic aura of relaxation. Bottom line: it works. What is it? The premise of Reiki draws upon the power of healing energy already present all around us. The heart and brain also send out measurable electromagnetic signals, creating the biofield of the human body which extends several feet beyond the skin. These subtle energy fields have a vibration that can be altered to promote a sense of wellbeing and relaxation, and yes, even help with the relief of pain and symptoms, says Lisa Brown, MSN, RN, director of Patient/Family Care at Hospice of Marion County. Brown is also trained as a traditional Reiki master and this summer began providing that training to her field staff on a voluntary basis. The system is so simple, anyone can do it, but Reiki practitioners must be trained via the traditional method and attend three two-hour sessions. The non-medical treatment consists of the systematic placement of the practitioners hands on specific areas of the patients body that correspond with the endocrine glands. The patient remains fully clothed and may be either in a chair or a bed, which is ideal for hospice patients who may be bed-bound. The placement points, such as the top of the head, the throat and the midchest require an extremely light touch. In fact, the practitioner may not actually touch the skin, allowing about an inch between her hands and the patients body, adds Brown. The vibratory energy field is still created, stimulating relaxation. Experiments at the University of Colorado discovered that the frequency of pulsations from the practitioners hands varied, ranging in waves from 0.3 hz to 30 hz. The connection between the patients cooperation and the practitioners intention have the power to alter the biomagnetic field, thus inducing a state of deep relaxation. What does it feel like? No two sessions are ever the same, but generally produce an overall sense of peace. The treatment itself feels like a glowing radiance throughout the body and in the space around the patient. One may feel warmth, tingling or a deep relaxation, all of which help with discomforting symptoms. Reiki can not only be used for our hospice patients, but also for friends, family and especially for ourselves, says Brown. I often use it myself before going to bed, but usually never get through the whole series because I fall asleep before I finish. Thats how relaxing it is! Lila Ivey is director, Community Outreach, Hospice of Marion County. In August the first Wednesday early dinner will be on Aug. 3 at Royal Oaks. Call Iris at 352-8739990 or Pat at 352-854-7549.

Its because of community participation, such as this, that makes Marion Landing a great place to live! Fall bowling leagues forming now Although we are still in the midst of summer, its time to start thinking about fall bowling. There are four leagues which are now being formed, and there are still some openings on Tuesday at 6:45 p.m., Thursday at 9:30 a.m. and Friday at 6:45 p.m. All leagues bowl for 26 weeks from September to March, and the cost is $4 per week, which includes the cost of the annual bowling banquet. It is not necessary to be a good bowler, said Dick Blanck, secretary to three of the leagues. The leagues are handicapped at 100 percent. Residents may sign up on the sheets posted on the bulletin board in the Bowling Center. And dont forget, theres still open bowling during the summer (hours are posted in the Bowling Center and on the Daily Activities Schedule) and 9pin No Tap plays every Wednesday at 9 a.m. All residents are welcome to participate. As a side note, Marion Landings Bowling Center was highlighted in the Summer 2011 edition of the Leland Management Newsletter, The Leland Insider. Our own Erik Halkola was lauded for keeping the alleys in great shape for our residents who say that our community is the ultimate place to retire because of this unique amenity. Zentangle-mania Did you ever find yourself doodling, and the result looked like a work of art? Thats the premise behind the fascinating new art form, Zentangle. Its an easy-to-learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns done with pen and small paper tiles. Its fun, relaxing, provides artistic satisfaction and gives you an increased sense of personal well being. Anyone can create a Zentangle, and it can be done anytime you have a few minutes to spare. Instructor Elaine Fitchpatrick is bringing this class to Marion Landing. I have done tangles on a shirt, for pendants, and on plain colored paper gift bags, said Elaine, who also teaches our Handmade Greeting Card class. Zentangle class day, time and cost will be posted soon, and any resident wishing to join in should sign the interest sheet posted on the Activity Wall or inquire in the Activities Office.

T he book jacket of Horans quasi-biographical novel is showered with superlatives, making it a favorite of book clubs. Prompting lively discussion is whether married, motherof-two Mameh Borthwick Cheney deserves praise for escaping a stifling marriage to elope with famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright or censure for abandoning a decent husband and their children. In the decade before World War 1, a self-actualizing woman could expect only scorn while her lover would receive a mere wrist slap for naughty behavior. It was actually Mamehs husband who was first to recognize Wright as an architectural visionary when he hired him to design a prairie house for the Cheney family. The Wrights and Cheneys were neighbors and friends in Oak Park until the affair came to light. The physical attraction between Frank and Mameh almost immediately led to a discreet liaison that for years permitted the two to appear as devoted parents. (Wright, also married, had six children at the time.) Granted, Mameh was no ordinary housewife. A college graduate, fluent in several languages, she yearned to stop standing on the side of life watching it float by and instead wished to swim in the river and feel its current. In an era when most women quashed such thoughts and pretended to be happy, Mameh acted on her feelings. There eventually followed years of separation from the couples combined eight children, many of them still heartbreakingly young. Although Mameh with Frank was able to rebuild her professional life in Europe where theyd fled and find stimulation and support in feminists like Swedish scholar Ellen Keyes, there was no denying that her personal freedom left in its wake two destroyed families. Legions of female readers have loved this novel. Some of us less enthusiastic have found Wright and Cheney incredibly selfish and the dialogue Horan invents for them strangely banal for two such luminaries. However, all is not a loss here as Horan unearths little-known facts about Wright and his times the influence of Japan on his work, his love for his native Wisconsin, and his admiration for classic Tuscan architecture. On the down side is his monumental ego and his disregard for others in refusing to pay his enormous debts. The conclusion, perhaps well-known to Wright followers, is shocking in its violence and destruction to the rest of us.

Maureen Edwards was Closest to the Pin. Royal Oaks Mens Golf After being rained out on July 8 we finally completed a round on the 15th. The game was three best net. First with a score of 194 was a tie between the team of Jim Lacey, John ONeill, Don Aubrey and the team of Ron Catapano, Dick Feltenberger, Fred West and John Foutty. In third with a score of 195 were Emmet Dowling, Frank Kelley, Tom Ducz, and Duke (long ball) Slayton. Closest to the pin were Ray Hagerman, Steve Szabo, Emmet Dowling, and Frank Kelley.

Carol is a member of Little Theatre, Money Movers Club, and Quilting Club; she also delivers The Communicator and has served on other committees such as Election, Ballot, Education and Document.

A plaque engraved with their names will join the 134 other volunteers recognized by the Community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Independence Day feud settled Families often celebrate Independence Day with picnics or barbecues and by gathering with friends and relatives. That was true in Marion Landing this July 4, and the picnic lunch was just terrific. But it wasnt all about the hot dogs and potato salad. It was about friends and neighbors enjoying each others company and all about playing Marion Landing Feud. Two groups of friends and neighbors formed family teams to play an entertaining game of the popular TV show. This spring, the community was surveyed to provide the top answers to a number of questions. Two families were formed, and it was the Hall Team (Mary Ann Hall-captain, Nancy Scott, Eileen Stannard, Jeanne Waite and Marie Callog) vs. the Schmidt Team (Bob Schmidt-captain, Donna Schmidt, Joan Buzzek, Toni Niemeyer and Lou Caporiccio). At the end of it all, the Schmidt Team claimed the victory, and appreciation trophies were given to all. Special thanks to all the volunteers who pitched in to make this holiday a memorable one: entertainment coordinator and MC: Liz Herrick; all the family members named above; those in the community who filled out the survey; food preparers and servers: Terry Callarman, Jim Therien, Nancy Rife, Pat Mershimer, Leta Simmons, Marg Carlquist, Volunteer honors to Carol and Red Mock M ARION LANDING D B Diane Bress Carol and Red Mock receive the Volunteer Appreciation Certificate from Board 1st VP Bob Fink (left).

Friday, July 22, 2011 ~ 3 www.smcitizen.com 22 ~ Friday, July 22, 2011 www.smcitizen.com roads on the list be submitted to the voters in a referendum. That would take the political nature away. Commissioners recently decided to remove some roads from the list, with the most controversial being part of Shady Road, also known as County Road 475A and, in some places, Southwest 27th Avenue. Darlene Weesner, who said she started the scenic road efforts in 1985, said she was very, very concerned with recent actions. She pointed out the advantage to eco-tourism of having the designated roads. She criticized the County Commission for its actions, saying, There have been no challenges to it up to now. She added, Were spending time doing something that isnt really necessary. She criticized the development of the now completed 31st Street extension. We could have had a nice twolane parkway for less money, and used the remaining funds for something else. Michelle Shearer of Southwest 85th Street, who is a member of the Scenic Road Advisory Committee, said that there have been very few negative comments. The majority of Marion County apparently is fine with the ordinance. She said the county should Keep the ordinance as it is. She said there is an economic impact of a scenic road on real estate. People feel security buying on scenic roads. She noted that Shady Road needs to keep that two-lane charm. When you are riding you are able to take in both sides of the road. She added, The scenic roads keep Marion County from becoming a South Florida city. Susan Woods of Northwest 90th Avenue spoke about her road. We were hoping it would be a scenic road by now. Ellis spoke again, saying he books a gathering of people who come to drive the roads. If we screw around with these roadways, they wont come back. Once you mess it up its gone. He said he had booked 550 room nights at a local hotel this past March. Gordon Johnson, from Oxford in Sumter County, is a photographer who brings friends from Finland to ride around the roads in Marion County. He reminded staffers that 100 years ago mining was proposed in the Grand Canyon, and asked people to imagine what it would have done to tourism out there. Another hearing will be planned after more work is done on the plan. Meanwhile, information on scenic roads can be accessed at http://www.marioncountyfl.org/Planning/sc enic_roads.aspx (no hyphens in address, but there is an underscore before the word roads.

Friday, July 22, 2011 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 2 ~ Friday, July 22, 2011 www.smcitizen.com ager Oel Wingo, Sheriff Johnny Smith and FCCM Range Rider Mark Durbin. The committee developed a strategy early on in its meeting, Hethcoat said, including what criteria it would use as a gauge and how members would rank their choices. Applicants were eliminated based on criteria set forth in the advertisement for the position. Three were disqualified for failure to follow directions in the advertisement, which called for applications to be complete and notarized. Two were eliminated because they did not have the three-years of command experience required for the position. From the final six, the committee selected the following listed in alphabetical order. Clay Connolly of Williston who has more than 22 years experience in the city. In his letter of application, Connolly wrote that he hoped to continue serving the residents of Williston until his retirement. Thomas Wilder of Ocala. Wilder is currently a chief of staff with the Marion County Sheriffs Department and has more than 29 years experience in law enforcement. John Donadio of Gainesville. In his letter of application, Donadio wrote that he had successfully managed a staff of 38, and could produce results within a limited budget. Dennis Strow of Ocala. Strow has 38 years in law enforcement and is employed with the Marion County Sheriffs Department. The interviews with the four are open to the public. Carolyn Ten Broeck is the editor of the Williston Pioneer Sun-News, an LCNI newspaper. CHIEF CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Suspect caught in store break-in A suspect was arrested after he apparently smashed in a door and stole some purses at Second Chance Consignment Shop, 6125 S.W. State Road 200, on July 14. Clarence A. Williams, 48, was accused of commercial burglary and theft. According to the report, deputies responded to the store and the suspect was seen running away from teh location. The deputy stopped the suspect, who allegedly admitted that he had stolen some purses and put them in a trash bag to carry from the store. He was wearing a black mask, and a black sock on his hand which he allegedly said was to stop him from leaving fingerprints. He was taken to jail without incident. Also late on July 14, a suspect was arrested at Walmart on charges he tried to steal a television worth more than $1,700. Kevin Douglas Smith, 28, of Southwest 151st Place, Dunnellon was stopped by the manager as he attempted to leave through a locked automotive door. It was late in the evening and the automotive department was closed and the lights were out. He left the store and deputies got the description of his car and stopped him in the 6600 block of County Road 484. He was taken to jail without incident. Amber Nikolia Walters, 20, of Northwest 41st Street, was accused of retail theft at Bealls Department Store after she allegedly took items into a dressing room and placed them in a Bealls bag in her purse. A local man was arrested for DUI after being stopped for suspiciously driving around in a residential neighborhood. Ricky Daniel Redmon, 47, of Southwest 78th Place in Ocala, allegedly failed the field sobriety test andrefused to give a breath sample at the jail. An Ocala man was among those arrested in Citrus County during a sex sting in Inverness. Adam Williams, 19, of Ocala, was among those arrested. The Citrus County Sheriffs Office led the sting. Operation Cyber Guardian, a weeklong undercover sting, led to the arrest of 18 people who used the Internet to solicit sex from children and then traveled to Citrus County with the intention of engaging in sexual activity with these supposed minors. The operation began July 11 and ended July 17. Sheriffs offices from Citrus, Polk, Sumter, Marion and Alachua counties were involved.

One of the best ways to do that is through dove hunting, which is one reason why great dove hunts are in such high demand but often difficult to find. That's why the FWC created its Special-Opportunity Dove Club Program to offer hunters the chance of experiencing exceptional dove hunting on the state's best public dove fields. Dove Club permits enable one adult and one youth (under age 16) to hunt all scheduled dates for the dove field of their choice. Permits cost $150 and enable both hunters to take a daily bag limit of birds each. There are eight hunts on all but one of the selected dove fields (Caravelle Ranch has six), and all hunts are from noon until sunset and take place on Saturdays, starting Oct. 1 and ending Jan. 7. Last year, 1,865 birds were harvested from six fields. This coming season, there again will be six special-opportunity dove fields scattered throughout the state from which to choose. One of the fields is on Allapattah Flats Public Small-Game Hunting Area (PSGHA) in Martin County, east of Lake Okeechobee. Thirteen Dove Club permits are available for the 100-acre field. Participants last year took an average of more than six birds per hunter per day, harvesting 644 birds. North Newberry PSGHA, in Alachua County, has 13 Dove Club permits on its 40 acres. That field didn't produce as well last year but yielded 410 doves two seasons ago. Caravelle Ranch, in Putnam County, has a 200-acre dove field with 30 Dove Club permits available. Last season, 249 doves were harvested there. The dove field on Hilochee Wildlife Management Area, in Lake County, has 15 Dove Club permits available to hunt its 58 acres. Hunters there last season took 490 doves, which equated to a 2.5-birds-perhunter, per day average. Frog Pond PSGHA, in Miami-Dade County, has been a top producer in past years, and 246 birds were taken there last season, for nearly a 2-birds-perhunter, per day average. Fifteen Dove Club permits are available to hunt its 50 acres. The remaining specialopportunity dove field is a brand new one to the system and is in Lafayette County. Koon Farm PSGHA is a 40-acre dove field with 13 permits available. Dove Club permits will be issued by random drawing during Phase I. That application period is July 1-18. After obtaining the correct application worksheet by going to MyFWC.com/Hunting and clicking on "Limited Entry Hunts," you can apply for these season passes by filling out a single worksheet (with up to five dove field choices) and turning it in at any county tax collector's office, license agent or by going online to www.fl.wildlifelicense.com During Phase I, hunters may be awarded a permit for only one dove field.

Scenic road hearing draws small crowd PHOTO BY JIM CLARKSouthwest 66th Street west of State Road 200 is one of Marion Countys designated scenic roads. JIM CLARK Editor The crowd was small but vocal Thursday, July 14, as Marion County planners held a public hearing on the scenic road situation in the county, including the proposed master plan. Almost all speakers were in favor of expanding the scenic road designations in the county, and one went so far as to propose that the process be taken away from county commissioners. Justin Ryan, transportation planner for the countys Growth Management Departments Planning Division, conducted the meeting, which was originally scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m., but adjourned shortly after 7 after all those who wished to speak had been heard. Only 13 members of the public attended. The most radical proposal came from Steve Ellis of Southwest 75th Terrace, who suggested that decisions on scenic roads be removed from the county commissioners lap. He proposed a ranking by a committee of the recommended scenic roads, and that the top Harry Potter event PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKA large crowd of wizards and muggles descended on Ocala for the opening of the latest Harry Potter move.

BY CAROLYN TEN BROECK Special to the Citizen The city of Williston inched its way closer to finding a permanent police chief during a committee meeting last week. Clay Connolly, John Donadio, Dennis J. Strow and Thomas R. Wilder made the final cut from the 11 men who applied for the job. They will be interviewed beginning at 10 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 4 in the City Council Chambers. One of these men will become Willistons next police chief, following on the heels of Dan Davis who retired in February. Capt. Clay Connolly is currently serving in the position as the interim chief. Williston Mayor Gerald Hethcoat, who spearheads the committee that will make a recommendation to the city council, said last week that the process was almost scientific in its approach. The committee included Hethcoat, Interim City ManTwo from Marion seek Williston police chief job PLEASESEECHIEF PAGE2 PLEASESEEROADS PAGE3 0008QSM
